Listen to “The Democratic Circus”, by Talking Heads.

What a beautiful song, full of not-beautiful realities, that we must confront. πŸ™‚ And we are confronting them! There is hope! We can turn this circus into a joyful party if we were only to choose to do so.

Personal accountability sadly lacks in our society

I’m continually astounded by the lack of personal accountability in our society. Finding someone who is willing to accept responsibility for something seems like a rare gem. Unfortunately there are too few of them gems and they are likely underappreciated, unacknowledged, and underpaid. Those people are what holds our society together.

The United States is bullshit. It is the enemy of the world.

Listening to the segment of Democracy Now reporting on the treatment of Haitian refugees is disgusting. This country is of no moral worth.

On Contact: Inverted totalitarianism β€” RT

What an excellent conversation between Chris Hedges and Wendy Brown!

You can also watch the video on RT.

This nicely lays out how we are currently living in a totalitarianist society, but a modified one, one without a monolithic leader, one that pretends to respect democracy and representative government when in actuality the decisions are made behind the curtain and away from public eyes.

Jezebel: McKayla Maroney Accuses the FBI of Covering Up Larry Nassar’s Sex Abuse.

Good for McKayla Maroney!! πŸ™‚πŸ‘ That’s impressive! It’s also disappointing that we have a reminder here that often judgments are made behind the scenes rather than in the court of law, where they should be, in public, in truth, in fact.

Biden is a doddering old fool, emblematic of imperial American foreign policy thinking. He should be put out to pasture along with the massively destructive Pentagon in CIA, who have caused more death and destruction on this planet than any other organizations in history. If you don’t believe me, why don’t you try reading a book at your local library. If you still have one.

To say that this is a complicated mess and there is no right decision, why don’t you hit yourself in the head again, because clearly you’ve done so many times in the past, maybe even accidentally. A wonderful solution to this could have been spending even a tiny fraction of our disgustingly obese war budget on setting up humanitarian institutions in the country, if we were actually to care about such things, and just simply let the people govern themselves and give those who want better things an alternative. Oh, but I’m not a policy analyst who went to school too long and got sufficiently indoctrinated to think any of this was ever a good idea.
