Some More News

Day 10. 107 pages, 48,786 words.

Ugh, I am out of time and energy. But I did watch this. You should check it out too, if you haven’t already. It deserves a signal boost. Because the US is really in trouble, and if they go down they’re going to drag the actually civilised world with them.

So maybe not let history repeat itself? It’s all very well for the oh-so-clever Mr. Peterson say that a vast majority of people today would have fallen into the Fascist and Nazi trap last time – he’s probably right – but today we know what happened last time so we don’t need to make that same mistake, right? Isn’t that how it goes? This time, we don’t just go along with the authoritarians and the inhumane laws ‘because it’s the law’? We do what’s actually, historically right?

That’s the plan, isn’t it you guys? Isn’t it.

    This guy/team from Cracked, now “Some More News”, always amazes me. Great pieces they put together. And I also continue to marvel in sadness at how people like Peterson used to get this stuff right, as you indicated, and yet now somehow are siding with the fascists. So few of us seem to have a moral backbone these days. I see comments on youtube, about Dave Rubin critiques, like “come on, like you wouldn’t sell out for a 6-figure income and your own show.”

    Yes, like I wouldn’t. Because I wouldn’t. Because reality MATTERS. Money, not so much.

      Tell you what, real talk. If I knew it was all over and there was no hope, and making a ton of money was the only way to guarantee safety and comfort for myself and my family for our few remaining years … yeah, I might sell out in the unlikely event I was given the opportunity.

      Not selling out is an expression of optimism. So in that sense I can see it. But damn.

        Yeah, I hear you, real talk on that as well. But it wasn’t all over and there wasn’t no hope (had to double it up), until all these respected persons started selling out. If they all rowed instead of hitting the lifeboats, I don’t even think Trump would have been elected, much less most of this other ancillary shit that’s going on.

        So yeah, but they’re CAUSING it to be over.
