It’s our choice: either we keep worshipping media escamotage ~ experiencing & interpreting reality through the distorting, vulgar, cosmetically opaque proscenium war-mongering lens of the flashy, glamorous and ugly corporate/intel propaganda-prestidigitators’ make-believe, ostentatious flim-flam ~ or…
….initiate coherent planetary coalitions operating under and by the Rule of Law; preserving internet freedoms; reforming institutions through transparency; regulating accountable finance; & deploying representative, coordinated ecological solutions!

Great to see you back, David. Hope you’ve been well.
I haven’t been away, just working hard, and wondering whether I comment too much! Reading the above, probably so ~ should use more commas…or compile a critical hyperbolic dictionary…
Haha, you’re so funny, David. I’ll never complain of too many comments, especially yours since you add so much to whatever topic is covered. Thank you.
I love the photo!
Me, too. I used it before on blog posts as the photographer so nicely has a Creative Commons license on her photo, so us bloggers can use it freely.
