Benenson Strategy Group, a think tank with some history with the DNC, offers their suggestion to regaining control of the 2016 US Presidential election. That suggestion is called FIRESIGN. Read it yourself ...



If this is not lunacy I don't know what is. Groups like Benenson are hired to perform research. They do not sit around and do this to pass the time - someone paid for this analysis.Perhaps that someone was the Clinton Foundation?

My Reactions to the Final Presidenatial Debate


Bryan Doueblue
Clinical Cynic
October 20, 2016

Below is the debate in-full (nearly):



I jotted some things down while I watched - surely missing some things due to some distractions on my end. Begin:

Candidates have not been informed of questions. Sure.

33,000 lives??? According to Gun Violence Archive roughly 12,000 gun-related deaths in 2015. According to NPR there are over 300 million guns in private hands. What Hillary fails to illustrate, is whether or not the guns involved in her inflated numbers are legal or not. Is that too "Fast and Furious" Hillary? Even if those deaths were all caused by legally owned firearms, which we know by default not to be the case, that is a 1/25,000 chance of Americans falling victim to fellow citizens due to gun violence. Over your lifetime you have a 1/12,000 chance to be struck by lightning.

Perhaps she is for late-term abortion, despite a fetus' ability to live outside the womb, due to her husband's many indiscretions?

Perhaps I can emigrate to, nay - I'll just go to Mexico or Guatemala, and once I am there and established I can have my entire family over. After all, if I am there they also have a right no? Anything short of yes would be racist and xenophobic - I don't care about Mexico's or Guatemalan laws, I just care about me. I'm special.

 If we trade energy with our 'neighbors' more than anyone in the world already, why the need for open borders? When you wanted the pipeline from Saudi Arabia to traverse Syria you didn't care about open borders among the agreeing parties (Syria aside). That was a blatant dodge and a shoddy one at that.

Russia... Russia... Russia. Where is your proof Hillary? Bit upset about that thorn in your side in Ukraine and Syria??? Maybe it'd be kind of like your proof in the bin Laden raid; you guys "got" your man and then, and unlike the Gaddafi and Hussein pictures and video, he's literally tossed off a ship. Of course there was the shots of the 'team' posturing in the situation room. But sure, by all means, if you say it's so it must be.

And Hillary's reference to Russian influence in the election - where's your proof? "We've never had a foreign government interfere[...]" - complete BS. What about the AIPAC? Then you have private, for-profit, organizations such as Americans United for Change and Democracy Partners. https://youtu.be/5IuJGHuIkzY https://youtu.be/hDc8PVCvfKs

And Trump, really, how many warheads do you need??? These things need to be disappearing and we should be working together with Putin to do so - not pushing for 'missile shields' right on Russia's front door. If fifty of those things are lobbed where are you going to go? Would it matter if it was 1,800 v. 2,000 missiles? You can only die and kill someone once.

Russia has not taken over the Middle East - that is laughable.

NATO is antiquated and should go away just as the Eastern Bloc went away. Yet Clinton and Obama's kicking a fence with a beehive on it - so of course they want NATO. And it was NATO that flew over Libya while radical elements overtook that nation and then dragged Gaddafi through the streets. And it was NATO that was hitting pro-Assad elements in Syria and, with the help of Clinton's Saudi buddies, funneling foreign fighters, arms, and money through the Turkish border.

Hillary talks of foreign influence on elections and is taking Saudi and Qatar money?!? Then she brings up Haiti?!? Huh? The same Haiti that the Clinton Foundation is under scrutiny over regarding pilfering relief money? FBI investigation? The one controlled ultimately dismissed by your buddy Comey? Syrian civil war aided by the Iranians, Russians, and Syrians?!? Al-Raqqah is the sovereign nation of Syria's soil and theirs to get back - not yours and your Saudi friends Hillary.

If we, the American public, swallow this BS we deserve what we get. Bye Hillary. If I could place you, your rich buddies, and your Saudi friends on a rocket and have you be the founder of a Martian colony I'd do so.

Assange’s Fate


Justin Raimondo
Antiwar.com
October 19. 2016

The saga of Julian Assange seems to be drawing to a climax – one that will decide the fate of this historic whistleblower who, for years, has been a giant thorn in the side of governments everywhere.

His role in exposing the machinations of the US government over the years earned him the plaudits of liberals – until the Bush era ended, and he started exposing the crimes of the Obama administration and – most pointedly – the hypocrisy and venality of Hillary Clinton and her journalistic camarilla. Now we see right-wing figures like Sean Hannity and – yes! – Donald Trump praising and defending him, while the ostensible liberals take up the cry of the Clinton campaign that he’s a “pawn of the Kremlin” and a “rapist.” Even Glenn Greenwald, formerly a comrade-in-arms, who together with Assange helped Edward Snowden evade the not-so-loving arms of Uncle Sam, has lately sought to distance himself from the founder of WikiLeaks (over the value of “curation”). Nice timing, Glenn!

Funny how that works.

Now we see that the Ecuadorian government, which has provided sanctuary for Assange ever since the frame-up “rape” charges by the Swedes were brought, is succumbing to pressure from Washington to silence him. As Assange released the now famous Podesta emails, that – among other things – exposed the collusion of the media and the Clinton campaign in delicious detail, John Kerry demanded that the Ecuadorians cut off Assange’s Internet access – and they meekly complied. Of course, since leftist Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa has openly endorsed Mrs. Clinton, and openly abhors Trump, this is hardly surprising: this is how the left operates internationally, as well as in this country – if you stray from the party line it doesn’t take long before the knives come out, aimed directly at one’s back.

In any case, Correa’s betrayal seems to have been short-circuited by the ever-resourceful Assange, who is still releasing incriminating emails. This is someone with a Plan!

Coincident with all this is the culmination of the long “legal” process initiated by the Swedish government, which is falsely accusing Assange of “rape.” He was supposed to have met with Swedish prosecutors on Monday, but has put off the meeting until November 14 – after the US elections.

Given Sweden’s bizarre laws on the subject, and the provenance of his accusers, the smear campaign aimed at Assange has zero credibility. No one believes these charges (and remember, he has never been formally charged) aren’t motivated by Washington’s stated desire to get him extradited to the US on “espionage” charges – and there isn’t anyone who thinks that the British government (which has spent millions making sure he stays holed up in Ecuador’s embassy) wouldn’t do so given half a chance.

Is it a coincidence that the way the Establishment tries to destroy those who oppose it is by hurling sex charges at them? They did the same thing to Dan Ellsberg: it’s the oldest trick in the book.

Equally ridiculous are the accusations that Assange is a “Russian agent.” To begin with, despite the US government’s propaganda, there isn’t a lick of real evidence that the Russians hacked the DNC emails, or any of the other emails published by WikiLeaks It could just as easily have been an insider. The fact of the matter is that, although they try to project the illusion of their own omniscience, they just don’t know.

What’s instructive is that the liberal media, which is not even bothering to hide its support for Hillary Clinton, is echoing Washington’s campaign to discredit Assange as a Kremlin tool. And of course the neoconservatives, who are solidly in Clinton’s camp, have always hated Assange, and are glad to join the chorus.

Assange has done more than any single figure to expose the machinations of governments worldwide to murder and plunder the rest of us: as the declared enemy of the powerful, he is their principal target – and it behooves those of us who defend liberty and transparency to rally around the banner of Wikileaks.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since August of 2012, with governments all over the world – and especially our government – determined to get him, smear him, and discredit him by any means necessary. Yet he continues to expose them, even in these straitened circumstances, without regard for his own health, happiness, or ultimate fate. He is a hero for our times – in an age when the heroic seems entirely absent. And he is now in more danger than ever before: what with the leftist Ecuadorian government, eager to curry favor with Hillary Clinton, wavering in his defense, and with Mrs. Clinton herself wondering “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

Assange’s fate, whatever it turns out to be, limns our own: if he goes down, then, in a sense, so do we all. Because what that means is that there’s no room for truth-tellers in our world, and no tolerance for heroes. And that’s not the kind of world I care to live in.

Paris Bataclan Terrorist Attack: Some News You May Have Missed


Bryan Douebleu
Clinical Cynic
July 1, 2016

These days it seems that it isn't just our attention that is quick to move on, but events seems to be taking place at a quicker pace. For some of you, like me, while not forgotten, the Bataclan attack in Paris back in November is somewhat in the rear-view-mirror. However, somehow this week I found a few things that I apparently missed.

First, is the origin of one of the weapons used that night. While I have yet to find specifics on the make and model of the weapon, it is known that it originated from Phoenix, Arizona, here in the United States. Stranger yet is the fact that the Obama administration's "Fast and Furious" scandal took place in Phoenix; the scandal surrounded the Obama administration's leaking of thousands of firearms, including assault weapons, into criminal hands... Intentionally. Of course, as if it is a running theme of modern times, no one was held to account.

Now, I don't fancy myself as Columbo or Sherlock Holmes, but what do you figure the odds are that one of those weapons made its way across an ocean and into Europe? I find that highly strange. Yet, while this is pure conjecture, I can't help but suspect that those 'released' weapons were intended for anti-Assad elements in Syria [ISIS] - much like operations ran in the past.

If that isn't enough there is more.

The Eagles of Death Metal were the headlining act on the night of the Bataclan attack. According to the band's frontman, Jesse Hughes, there existed some oddities among the venue's security. Six security guards failed to show up for work that night. Further, he stated that some of those that were working the venue were acting oddly. In fact, they were acting so odd that Hughes had to actually request that one be removed from working backstage security.


Want another?

Two days prior to the attack, a Twitter post 'predicted' the attack. I've seen this before regarding events like this, such as Facebook pages created prior to an event, yet never regarding any 'good' or mundane events... And I must admit - that leaves me perplexed. If you can provide some examples of inaccurate time stamps on social media regarding mundane news, greater than a 24-hour period, by all means - please leave that info in the comments.

No, I am not British, yet  I am thrilled that the vote to leave the EU has succeeded... If only for the blow it serves to our elite controllers. Common sense and autonomy has ruled the day, with the quiet majority having had their vote, and now it's time for that loud, utterly ignorant minority to hit that thing called 'social' media with all sorts of dumb. How I absolutely loathe Twitter and social media. Let's take a look at some lowlights:

When you have years to reflect on EU membership, and then base a decision on that experience, it is then fear-based?

I see only single-mindedness on one side here... Can you guess which?

I thought you voted in a democracy but perhaps I'm mistaken. Then again, this is a constitutional monarchy.

Perhaps they are the old people that joined and have a before and after to contrast to see the error of their ways. Perhaps we shouldn't put much weight on silly polls of which we know nothing on how they were conducted?

Leaving a union is xenophobic?

Like becoming members of a body of which the people know not whom governs their governors?

How many Brits were using European made electronics and clothing? Right. Not much changes.


Leaving a union is xenophobic?

Weren't they the ones that helped set up and join the EU as well?

Ever hear of a thing called NATO?

In the end, sanity won. How many of the above people really have a clue what they are talking about?

One of the founding fathers of the European Union.
If you are British and know anyone that was in favor of remaining, ask them if they know who Jean Monnet was. Ask them who represented them in Brussels. I bet you'd be surprised at the results.

Something Smells Bad In Orlando

Was Mateen uncomfortable with his sexuality and unable to live as a gay Muslim man?

Bryan Douebleu
Clinical Cynic
June 15, 2016

How does a man that is known to the FBI, and other agencies, as a potential radical, get on a terror list, and then go on to purchase weapons?

He was removed from that list and FBI and DHS investigations were restricted due to Hilary Clinton's State Department and DHS heads... for fear of offending Muslims. According to retired DHS agent Philip Haney, of the two attempts the FBI tried to develop a case against Orlando shooter Mateen, their failure for each attempt was a direct result of their inability to connect dots - dots that were likely closed as the results of Clinton and DHS policy that lead to the deletion of sixty-seven records in 2012 - it was in 2013 that Mateen appeared on the FBI's radar.

The failure at the FBI resulted in Mateen being removed from the list of potential threats and paved the way to his legal purchase of firearms. This is not a failure of our gun laws, it is a failure of Clinton's State Department and Homeland Security policy and its result on law enforcement.

Take a look at what Clinton's social media people are tweeting:


It looks like her staffers are just as ignorant at 20,404 twits.

True to the Obama administration's motto, let no opportunity go to waste, no time was wasted in bringing advocacy of stricter gun laws to forefront. Clinton, Obama, and Sanders all chimed in right on que - and as you might have guessed, none of them called this as it was at face value. Instead they railed against our current system while ignoring massive failures that set the table for last Saturday night.

So, even if the story is as it is reported by the mainstream media, I take issue. And then, there are some other things that have come to light which do not sit well with me...

Many club goers have told media outlets that they believed multiple individuals were involved in the attack. Here are some videos:

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/man-describes-playing-dead-hiding-orlando-shooter-39816943







And now we come to Mr. Luis Burbano, actor extraordinaire.

Luis Burbano has provided two different media outlets, ABC and FOX News, two very different stories. He tells one that he slipped out through a hole in a fence - obviously in a patio area. In the other he stated he exited through a back door into an alley. In one he states he dragged a man, with a grave wound which had split his forearm in two, up a hill - no hills exist (you can check this yourself using Google street view - and it's Florida). In one he holds an exit door shut with another man and in another he exits through a sliding glass door. In one he mentions the serious wound he 'observed', a forearm split into two, yet, despite the gravity of seeing such a thing, he completely omits it from the other interview. He states he was working one bar yet at last call, just before shots are fired, he went to a different bar "to collect his check"; I've been to my share of bars and bartenders remain when patrons leave - at last call they are serving a last round of drinks and closing tabs... not going and collecting a paycheck [and the timing of this is just convenient to say the least].

Here are the two Luis Burbano videos I am referencing:





Let's take a look at that alley, that back door, and that hole in the fence.


That patio fence have any holes in it? Maybe he meant he went under the fence and that sliding glass door is on that patio? That's plausible, but he said he did something contrary in the opposite interview.


This is odd; I don't see a back door or an alley. There is an empty lot behind Pulse full of gravel and, if I recall correctly, a tree or two.


Again, no alley. Next door there is a gas station.

So, here's what we know.

Regarding the mainstream media's story, and that of Orlando police, Mateen got into the club after a firefight with a cop stationed at the club (this must be a Florida thing - I've seen off-duty cops do club security but never one 'stationed'), and after he made it inside where he killed fifty people and wounded, last time I checked, fifty-three. Mateen was once on a terror list, was removed, and was known to the FBI, he held some form of security clearance for his work with the British security firm G4S - of which Vanity Fair called 'The Chaos Company', and all the above allowed him to purchase firearms.

We also know that multiple witnesses heard references to multiple assailants. We know mainline media outlets have broke off from a witness stating the presence of multiple shooters. We know that one of the mainstream media's witnesses, and among the most interviewed among outlets, is a B-list actor that has told different stories that contradict one another.

And once again, we have yet another mass shooting, with massive national coverage, under Obama's tenure. And once again, we have another event chock-full with failures and inconsistencies.

We Are Change's Luke Rudowski Breaks Down The Pulse Nightclub Shooting



Bryan Douebleu
Clinical Cynic
June 13, 2016

Omar Mateen, over the course of over three hours, apparently killed fifty people and wounded over fifty others. Luke Rudowski sheds light on this and Mateen's history; if you are interested in his sources for the video, follow the video to YouTube and the sources can be found in the video's description. We see again, references to mental illness, much like most of these perpetrators of mass shootings - and a possibility of SSRI involvement, and a history that is anything but straightforward. And again, like the Boston marathon bombing on to 9-11, we see an individual that was no stranger to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community. And, once more, the gun 'control' advocates are reinvigorated.

Letting no time or opportunity, created or otherwise, go to waste, our career politicians immediately invoked their tired gun control rhetoric. Never mind that Mateen legellay purchased a semi-auto rifle and handgun while on a terrorist watch list...







What has Hilary contributed to the world? Travelgate. Filegate. Whitewater. The crisis in Ukraine. The destruction of Libya and the murder of Qaddafi. The destruction of Syria. Benghazi. An email scandal and possibly leaking classified information (yet she is spared from Snowden's fate).

We have the Second Amendment in the United States to provide a counter to any threat imposed upon the people by a tyrannical government; whether or not that tyrannical government is present at this time is not the point. As a history buff and a history major in college, the first thing any totalitarian regime does is disarm the populace - thereby protecting itself from a popular uprising; both Nazi Germany and the Soviets did so (among many others).

The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country. - Adolf Hitler



If you want to see what happens when lawful citizens are disarmed, take a long look at Chicago over the years. Or, better yet, take a look at Venezuela. What happened in Orlando is tragic; we don't need to take a tragic event and erode our nation's principles. What we need to have happen is an investigation into why the FBI and other agencies failed - but who is left untainted to such an extent to conduct it?

I am sure that you, like me, often encounter absurd commercials throughout your week - not all of which are comprised of drug marketing by the legal drug cartels. Well, I'm here to share with you what is thee most pathetic thing I have seen yet that someone is selling. And yes, I am sure there are going to be lots of idiots out there that are too lazy to do a quick audit to formulate a shopping list.

I give to you the Samsung advert titled "Family Hub: Birthday Party". Enjoy before you break down at the current human state:



That's right; you don't have to be "B" list celebrity to have a swinging party - all you need is your smartphone integrated with your Goddamned refrigerator. And rest assured, we all know you can't party 24/7 and that everyone requires downtime... Fear not pleb, even then, with your Xbox in the living room, connected to a 'smart' TV, along with 'smart' TV's in bedrooms, smart phones all handedly close by - even while you sleep, and your shiny new 'smart' refrigerator in the kitchen, your alphabet friends will always be watching, or listening, over you.

It's all worth the cost to wallet and privacy - you can now see into your refrigerator - LIVE... As well as send texts to other family members to your new 'smart' refrigerator door (never mind every idiot now has a smartphone, anyways, which can receive texts).

I am now at a total loss for words. If Hale-Bopp was making a pass right about now I might start scheming...

Vice Magazine, or more specifically, their offshoot YouTube channel Vice News, has been a source of frustration from my perspective as they appear to play the left and right game often. With that said, occasionally they produce some decent content - and the latest content along these lines is an interview with Edward Snowden; for those living in dark caves and under rocks, Snowden is considered a traitor for blowing a whistle on various US alphabet agencies' domestic spying on Americans - in order to conduct the interview VICE's Shane Smith traveled to Moscow.

During the interview Snowden commented that your smartphone's cameras and microphones can be remotely tapped, your phone conversations recorded, and your browsing habits/contacts/emails/and texts obtained. Further, apparently, many police departments are now beginning to acquire the tech to do so. The device frequently used is known as an IMSI-catcher; in short, those utilizing the device place it between a cell tower and the target device, and by doing so, the IMSI-catcher can then trick our smartphones into responding to the IMSI-catcher as if it were in fact the cell tower - with all of your data and information filtered through that IMSI-catcher.

In the video below you will see a demonstration of an IMSI-catcher in action.



The sad reality of what is taking place in the United States, and many European nations, is the fact that the wrath of the people is misplaced. Be it here in the US with anti-Trump sentiment, or Sweden with the extreme left, or France and Germany, and so on... All while the people's rights have been and continue to be infringed upon illegally - and by and large, nobody seems to really care. Perhaps they did for a day or two when news initially broke of government data mining, much like the response to the big bailouts in 2008, and then we all quickly returned to being pacified.

It is actually illegal for the CIA to conduct operations domestically targeting American citizens, and domestic operations were never intended as a function of that agency. In the video below you can watch John Brennan, the acting director of the CIA, openly lie:





At this point I should mention that John Brennan still sits in the director's chair. Never mind that he perjured himself before the Senate. Of course Obama didn't ask him to resign, because after all, and setting aside differences lying on the surface, he's just another puppet akin to Bush and Clinton - and it is all about continuity of an agenda; this is how they lull the naive people out there into playing the left/right game and why nothing really changes. These people get away with everything - always... And it doesn't look like that is going to change.

I'd like to know what these Senators have done on our behalf...

Think twice next time you decide it's wise to send someone intimate pictures or worse. In a separate article years ago Snowden also stated that some goons at the NSA enjoy passing around nude and sexually explicit pictures of citizens, illegally obtained from their emails and cell phones, for a laugh (or maybe for a bathroom 'break'). I guess perversion and nerd arousal is now considered national security. It really is a brave new world.

Just because we like to pull the blankets up over our collective heads, bury our heads in the sand, click our heels, or instead choose to get worked up over sovereign nations seeking to secure their borders and enjoy accusing individuals (whom we do not personally know) as being racist, does not make these serious incursions on freedom and privacy go away. Instead, like an infection oozing with bacteria and pus, it festers and spreads. If all the repeated attempts to kill net neutrality provide any hint of an example, we now have a massive, multi-headed hydra whose heads require thorough severing one by one.

In case you are interested, in February the New York Times published an article about the 'great' NYPD's spying activities. Yet, as stated earlier, these acts are unfortunately not limited to the NYPD.

And, in case you are wondering; I do view Snowden, not as a hero, but as a patriot. Any individual with a moral compass would do the same. We should want to know what those are doing in our names - whether it be directed at us as in this case, or targeting others. Unfortunately, many seem to think we are only supposed to honor the machine - the regime - the utterly fat and inflated bureaucracy that is anything but bureaucratic, and not ourselves collectively. The United States is not the CIA or NSA or a sitting Senator or President - those agencies and offices were designed to work on our, the people's, behalf - not the other way around. And, at this time, they run amok with nil oversight while serving another master (which just happens to be meeting in Dresden, Germany while I write this).

Extended Hiatus


I suppose it's readily apparent that I have let this blog go. This post is an official announcement that I am not going to be focused on posting here for several more months at least.

This is not the end of this blog... I am simply choosing to focus my energy on other things at the moment; I need to wrap up school so I can leave my line of work in my rear view mirror. I want to put out some more music and am currently halfway through writing and recording a new full length.

There is also a third reason. While I have come across many issues, over the last several months, that have fanned the flames in me and would have fueled many posts, I need to unplug as much as I can. Perhaps I care too much for certain things, many of which I have shared over the last several years here... And the fact that it seems that 95/100 human beings can't be bothered with anything other than what entertains or immediately benefits them is beyond disconcerting to me. Yes, there are still many beautiful things on this planet and many things to continue fighting for - however trivial onemay feel. Yet, for the time being, while I will remain angry and fired up regarding many things, I need to stop fighting. I need to walk away long enough for me to regain some sort of faith in us human beings again, because at this moment, I have less faith than ever.

I see our present circumstance when I hear the mainstream media reports. I see it in the political bullshit taking place here in the United States and the outright slander and puppeteering taking place. I see it when I sit in traffic for an hour when I come home from work. I see it when I look up and see a hazy white sky that should be blue, complete with persistent 'contrails'. I see it when I see people more concerned and excited over a Los Angeles Lakers game than anything else that has mattered for quite some time. I see it with this weird preoccupation with celebrity worship. Basically, I see it any time I turn on the radio or television or leave my house.

This reminds me of two sayings. One states that ten percent of a population must be the trailblazers and then the rest of the sheep will follow. The other states that doing the same thing again and again, while expecting different results, is the definition of insanity. Right now I am more in line with the latter.

Earlier today I listened to a presentation on geoengineering, and as usual, I wanted to go to war - come here and write something on it and share it with others. Then I recalled I've already done that. I've shared with people, posted about it, put up a few short YouTube videos, and even done a song on it. Thus, where I once thought people wouldn't act until they smelled smoke I know see it differently... Like this:

Imagine a family of four in a house. All members are in the living room watching the latest pile of shit on the Kardashians and Kanye 'Autotune' West. They get a hint of smoke and quickly brush it off as the neighbor barbecuing. One of the kids decides to go grab a bottle of carbonated Aspartame from the fridge and notices there is a fire on the stove. The kid returns to the living room declaring a fire in the kitchen and that action must be taken... Yet, the rest of the family quickly reassures the kid that there is no fire - the neighbor is just having an outing on his patio. It isn't until the actual couch they sit on catches fire that they realize the trouble they are in. A three-alarm fire is declared and engines arrive and put out the fire. Once the smoke clears someone mentions, "Hey, what was the cause?", and is told what's done is done. Yeah, let's move on. Never mind that work an unlicensed electrician did that  resulted in faulty wiring. So, they return to normal, go back to the circus that appeases them and sees them through until the end of the school or work day.
Perhaps the next time fire breaks out in that house the family will be asleep and their fates sealed.And that is how I collectively see Americans, the British, and Europeans.

Now, since I see our society as a collective of willing idiots I then naturally arrive at the following:

In nature there does exist animals that would, if given the chance, put themselves out of business. A beaver, for example, without the natural checks and balances of the functional ecosystem he lives [if not ruined by human beings yet], would undoubtedly end up procreating to record levels and eventually destroy his own habitat. Of course if this situation ever became a reality there would be the ever vigilant, self-proclaimed protectors of wild habitat and life, otherwise known as hunters, to cull that population.

And yet, another animal, with greater tools for destruction and unbalance, motivated largely by personal gain, is the equivalent of the beavers above. Even more worrisome is the fact that this animal's stage is the planet as a whole.

Yeah, you've got it. That animal is us. If children grow to become their parents, adopting their beliefs and their values, we are in dire trouble. That goes every bit as much for us, as it does for the children of some Taliban that secretly enjoys sexing up his bacha bazi, and anyone else currently living on this planet.

Theoretical physicists have often stated that the era we currently inhabit is more important than any other time in history. They state that human civilization is at the crux of consciousness, kind of like a fork in the road; on the left is ruin and on the right is enlightenment and the dawn of a new age. For us to take that right turn we have much to do, but the start must be with ourselves. I would even be brazen enough to state that a good start to reach that right turn would be to cease giving in to impulse and greed - to put others before you. Could you even imagine what this planet would be like if only a fraction of us did so? I believe that only then will we have the ability to effect change in our institutions, for they reflect us whether or not we choose to believe it.

Until next time...
