“If hope is to be found, it will be found with those of us who do not rely on politicians that promise to fix what is wrong but instead do their part, at their local levels, to right the wrongs and fix what is broken. I am referring to the builders, the thinkers, the helpers, the healers, the educators, the creators, the artists, the activists, the technicians, the food gatherers and distributors, and every other person who does their part to build up rather than destroy.” JW
Whether red ants will really fight black ants to the death is a question for the biologists, but it’s an apt analogy of what’s playing out before us on the political scene and a chilling lesson in social engineering.What to Expect in 2021: Madness, Mayhem, Manipulation and More Tyranny — John W.

If you want to know what’s happening here and now all you have to do is look what has been happening around the world for the last 100 years or so. The tyranny has come home to roost.

Good read I’m passing along here . . . The number of ‘fucks’ totally appropriate imo!

“I hope it’s not a big surprise that America is now a rigidly two-tier society and economy. If you’re an executive at a big Wall Street investment bank, you can rig markets and embezzle billions and you’ll never face any personal legal consequences such as being indicted for fraud and being imprisoned. But try being an employee at a local credit union and embezzle $5,000–a prison sentence is very predictable.”
I’m compelled to share a personal anecdote on this very alarming reality. In my early 20s (circa 1990) I was arrested at the St. Louis airport for “felony fraud”. I was cuffed, searched and told I’d be extradited to Springfield, MO after a night in the ’holding tank’. I did not learn of my felony crime until many hours later and was completely baffled, my mom and sister who came to pick me up were very worried as I was detained. This felony crime? I wrote checks worth $50 on a closed account to a grocery store several years earlier while I was a college student in Springfield.
The felony charge was eventually dropped, I was not extradited after all, but not after paying a hefty fine to the courts, mortifying my mother, and having a misdemeanor charge on my record for several years afterward. That was my ‘lesson’ for a simple accounting mistake by my 18 year old self.

And the sad thing is, real science suffers from all of this, because what we’re really watching is a world-wide epidemic of a different sort, of too many people crying “wolf!” when there is no wolf, or rather, not being able to recognize a real wolf come to raid the flock, and ignoring the voices of real alarm when it happens.MIND GAMES: ‘Follow The Science’, Goose-Stepping Into the New Scientific Creed — RIELPOLITIK

Hedge your bet
From out of nowhere
Strikes most deft
Knights in white satin
On your mark
Nipped in full bud
Clipped by false love
Smashed in Face
Mesmered through space
Licked, wicked, dilly-flicked
Tip your hat level
Like the devil
Words for the birds
Wow how Might

“However most people will be unable to absorb the data, let alone move beyond it to wrestle with the implications. Why? Because such data is belief-shattering. Absorbing this information is not an intellectual process; it’s an emotional one.
I don’t know why human nature decided to invest so much in developing a tight wall around the belief systems that control our actions and thoughts. But it has.
I’m sure there was some powerful evolutionary advantage. One that’s now being hijacked daily by social media AI programs to nudge us in desired directions. One that’s being leveraged by shabby politicians, hucksters, fake gurus, and con men to steer advantage away from the populace and towards themselves.“
I am a bibliophile, born with it, no doubt. Doubtless as well, I like physical books and in this lifetime I will never prefer electronic books. Nope, not ever. That I’ve gotten beyond finding them offensive is as far as I expect to get in the foreseeable future.
When I first heard of the ‘modern day book-burning’ selling as electronic censorship of course, I thought of Fahrenheit 451, a book I read as a teen which made a lasting impression on me. As did other books I read in my younger years—Animal Farm, 1984, Brave New World, Dune, Future Shock, the list will be very familiar to some.
Like the Bible, I read these works when their meaning was well over my head and left far too much of their interpretation to the teachers.
I was also drawn to other of the older ‘classics’ for reasons I don’t understand at all, but which got me a fair amount of ribbing from my Midwest, middle class milieu. That I would choose French Literature as a major was laughable enough, but then to continue such folly even past the Master’s level—“hopeless” was a word I heard more than once. “Pretentious” was another.
To this day, I spend more money on books than any other single thing and the AI spy system can prove that, I’m sure.
This Halloween I take great pleasure in burning quite a few, for ceremonial sake, mostly. All those authors who align with politics over principles, they’ve found a new home in ashes. All those authors who laud themselves above the masses like royalty, they will join in the ceremony, which will continue until no book from those shill-heavy authors, no matter what side of the political wing, will be left on the shelves, whether left, right, or center.
Care to see which go up in flames? Any you’d care to add??
