There might have been similar cases in the past, but the filth that is around today surpasses it by far. Utterly repugnant.
Remember the old slogan ‘get rich quick?’ The fastest way used to be robbing a bank. Now you just need to own one.
So when did our accepted Rule of Law get flushed down the gold-plated pan? In fact, has this rule of law ever expressed legitimate morality, especially in a era when the water closet became the paragon of respectable “virtuous” existence? Obviously the latter contention is easier to interrogate than the former.
I think the divine right of “kings” re-incarnated as the feudal cyber-religion of empire deserves to drown in the drains. Pollution sinks exist all over this “developed” world; the question is, how can we retrieve and rehabilitate the notion of nobility and intelligence, & remediate the moral pollution that its abuse & corruption has generated?
I wish these three intelligent moral people could be heard on mass television. If people only knew … and to me this is truly entertaining.
So glad you enjoyed the conversation, too, Virginia. I used to post more of Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert back when I was posting too much.
