Cointelpro, McCarthyism, The War on Drugs from the 80’s came to mind, along with today’s race for the White House. At this stage of the game here in the U.S. I think we have to be extremely careful what band wagon we decide to climb onto, as they both seem, very! extreme, very! contrived, and very! dangerous…With a Media driven culture owned by BIG corporations, linked to wall street and our Government – that, along with, bumper stickers and memes being the primary intellectual information source we have at our disposal these days – I feel we might be on thin ice.
I find myself as guilty of falling into these cold waters as anyone else; repetition from news feeds – sound bites – 24/7 being converted to conversation; the masses become Inadvertently a devilish means of “people management” for these Apes and Billygoats ruling the roost. Everyone from the blue collar worker to the scholar are exposed, and inflicted, (for the most part) by this barrage, this social engineering, this cultural assault.
Old tricks, new techniques, same outcome. They wine and dine, look us deep in the eyes, and sing us to sleep; then we wake up the next morning finding our homes have been robbed, our innocents taken, and a five dollars bill left on our nightstand along with a thank you note with no phone number. And! if that’s not enough, they come back four years later and do it all over again.
Gotta hand it to um,
