What Are We Supposed to Do When We Do Never Forgetting?

All kinds of 9/11 remembrances are being pronounced everywhere today, as they always are on September 11ths. Today it seems I'm seeing quite a few more "Never Forget"s everywhere, might be just because I'm noticing them more. And they are everywhere , on just about every web page, on my Twitter feed everyone is posting pics of the twin towers with those words -- I'm even seeing them outside of churches, and they're likely inside when they mention it in their services. I think about that. "Never Forget." Why? I mean, thinking about what happened and praying for the families and working hard for very good things for everyone all around is a very good thing, but I wonder. Does "Never Forget"ing mean actually looking closely at what actually happened on that day, and why? One of the things the operatives who arranged it did was catastrophize the imagination . It is one of the weapons in the arsenal of human sacrifice activity -- keeping the pop

It's Always Been Cannibalism, Always - It Is What the World System Does

Remember that story about the scorpion that needed a lift to get across the stream? The frog was so nice to comply, under one condition, that the scorpion did not sting the frog along the way. The scorpion agreed, only to lethally sting the frog halfway across. As both start to sink to their deaths, the bewildered frog asked the scorpion, "Why did you do that? Now we both will die." To which the Scorpion replied, "It is what I do." The agents of Cain are scorpions. They must commit human sacrifice as a matter of habitual practice. They do it all the time. They must -- it is what they do . You can see how it works by simply reading one brief passage in Scripture, the fourth chapter of Genesis. Here's how that story goes: Cain sacrifices a human being, his own brother even, and because it was such an evil act God sends him out of His presence forever. God does, however, commission him to run the city holding seven-fold strength prosecutorial capacity -- yes, Cain

It's Always Been Cannibalism, No Hifalutin Politician Has Ever Changed That

From what I hear, tonight US President Joe Biden is supposed to give some major speech, something about bringing back the soul of the country or something. His people have so effed up the country, here's to hoping it is about healing and reconciliation. To that end here's what I'm expecting him to say, after all the introductory pleasantries: "I am completely rescinding all the massive federal payouts that really amount to robust racketeering activity. All the insane corporate welfare payments, all the 'inflation reduction' climate change hysteria giveaways, and especially anything related to things like student debt relief which is so brazenly unfair. (And I won't let the horribly exploitive universities off the hook either, they're just as much rackets as any of them.) I apologize for thinking just dumping money in people's laps would fix things. I just encourage people to work hard and try to do as well as you can, and for the states to do their

Regularly Scheduled Tuesday Grieving Sessions - We Got Another Really Good One Yesterday

There is a scene in the film All the President's Men when Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, working hard to find the good dirt on President Richard Nixon, are making their way to the house of one of Nixon's administrative operatives to try to get him to talk. As they stroll along the front of these spiffy-looking Brownstone-like homes, one of them remarks about the people inside, just living their lives, doing their thing, mostly oblivious to what is really going on outside of their cognitive domain. I think about this very brief, seemingly incidental scene quite often. I do so when looking into the eyes of so many people I encounter. I look and I just see so much ugliness and darkness in there, there in their souls. It doesn't matter how smiley they are or how well their hair is coiffed or how nicely dressed they are. They are ultimately all about wreaking havoc on the rest of the world in whatever way their psyche has been trained to do so. Please

It really is the next step in the evolutionary line. The best humanist materialist World devotees are slavering over it. Plug me in. I want to be plugged in. Seriously, to be mechanically fused to the System so there is no question about how good you see me to be so you won't hurt me would be a dream come true. Futurists have been talking about it for a couple centuries, really. The most renowned one, Ray Kurzweil, had declared the "singularity" will happen by 2045. That's really not too long from now. I only share this potential reality to post a heads-up to Todd Hayen's excellent piece in Off-Guardian , one in which he takes the roof off the marauding technological advances today . This paragraph is the one that is the most harrowing, after he questions exactly how much has it all advanced our society today? Other than medical issues, how else has technology diminished our lives? From a very broad perspective, what has gone down hill as technology has advanced

The Struggle Session Dominion, Addendum

While I was channel surfing I came across a movie, I believe it was called Greenland , about a family's attempts to escape an extraterrestrial disaster of some kind, you know, meteors or asteroids hitting the earth and all. I don't know, I didn't hang around to see much of it. But one scene featured people watching events unfold on the television in a bar or restaurant. The news guy was reporting from somewhere, and sure enough a large fireball came from the sky and obliterated his location. As it always happens with these kinds of things, instantly the screen went fuzzy. Very scary. I mention this because I just felt compelled to add an addendum to my post from yesterday about what is really going on with the Covid thing, that too many people are so overridden with guilt in particular circumstances that it drives the lockdown protocols -- indeed it drives much of what is ultimately wrecking things today. How many insane policy implementations are destroying our world in t

I've recently seen a number of pieces at the online sites I visit along these lines: "What are we doing to our children forcing them to be vaxxed when it is so dangerous?!" There were two just yesterday at one I like, Off-Guardian .  While I agree with the concern as well as all those related to the continued insanity of overbearing lockdown protocols weighing on us all the time, I really don't think people are truly grasping what is happening when that critical mass of Generation Xers pretty-much dominate the public sphere with all of this. If I may. People born in the 60s and 70s have been steeped in Frankfurt School "Critical Theory" theology. It may be said to be "philosophy," but really it is a form of the way they think things should be transcendently . It is a religion.  Around that time Herbert Marcuse was bilging his stuff about sexual expression being a form of liberation from heteropatriarchal oppression, and Theodor Adorno was bilging
