Now that’s what I’d like to call a real spade in trumps, John Pilger never recoils or concedes to tactics of intimidation, erasure and exclusion; always principled, ever honest. Noble and distinguished. Bravo John.
Of course honesty is unfashionable, especially when it is disturbing and challenging. Truth is a dangerous brew. Truth is poison to corrupt interests, corrosive for malevolent cynics ~ it strips them of their protective coat. Let’s have more of it.
We’ve been blackmailed and interminably bludgeoned with vicarious guilt since time immemorial; indoctrinated to turn the other cheek far too prescriptively, assured by the God-Of-Almighty-Damnation that to tolerate and forgive “its” servants’ cruel and vindictive abuses is the highest virtue. To hell with that. Murder by any other name would smell as rank.
The iniquity of our corporatist-imperialistic, war-mongering, mercenary & predatory “rulers” is an evil harvest of vulgar artifice and crippling deviance ripe for robust winnowing ~ righteous grist for posterity.
