  8. I’m sorry that he used the phrase “…over whom they’re ruling.” They’re not supposed to be ruling over anyone. They’re supposed to be working for us. We don’t elect people to rule, we elect them to serve. He was very articulate in his interview, but I hope by the next time he speaks he makes this clear. Too many Americans have forgotten what the jobs and responsibilities of citizens and elected officials are.

  10. Impeccable and exemplary articulation by Glenn G. Bravo!

    Poor Kirsty Wark ~ doing her best to defend the old imperialist school blag. Ha!! Come on bebe…own up, the dust is settling on the superannuated elites.

We are witnessing the unmistakable shapes of new, hybrid technologies of the sacred; the old establishment stories are feeble, thread-bare and exhausted, new songs are in the air ~ exoplanetary vistas trail promises in abundance.

    The soul of the global griot is whispering an artful renaissance…
