With Age, Wisdom

With Age, Wisdom

That’s the Gods’ honest truth! Once I aged enough and gained enough experience to stop giving a shit about other people’s opinions – right or wrong – about me, my stress reduced, my success increased, and my life got measurably better. And, once I became wise enough to realize that my detractors were both the enemy and unworthy of my respect – beyond respecting their capacity and propensity to do harm, I fully stopped allowing their opinions of me to affect me in any internal manner.

Of course, this is all and only a matter of not giving the enemy the hand-out of power over my self. It’s very much not the platonic ideal of iconoclasm and free thought. It can’t be; not so long as the Democrats and their ilk are so ready to act upon their opinions and to do so in ways designed to cause as much harm to Americans as they can without risking themselves.

I Never Cared

I Never Cared Until You Forced Me To
I Never Cared Until You Forced Me To

Yeah, that’s the Gods’ honest truth. I never cared about that sort of thing. I wasn’t raised to do so. But I care now, and so do a great deal of other Americans. What’s happening right now shows that to be true.

It’s 12th Night, Ending Christmastide

Since it’s 12th Night – or, tomorrow is, if you use the Anglican calendar – I figured it was right to close out the season with more presents I’m pretty sure we’d all like to open. 😀

21st Century Book Burnings

Like all forms of Information Control, book burnings in the modern era may look different than in the past, but they are the same in intent and effect. Whether it’s deplatforming, demonetizing, or silently limiting the reach of posts, it’s all just the book burning of the Internet Age.

Control Of Information

Control Of Information - A Prerequisite For Tyranny
Control Of Information – A Prerequisite For Tyranny

Some things only change in detail and specific methodology. Whether it’s Goebbels’ Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda (RMVP), Facebook, Twitter, or the insinuative monster that is Google, the strict control of information is a prerequisite for the sought after tyrannical rule. Changing the name or the specific methods of control doesn’t change the fundamental fact of it or the effects it has upon Peoples.
