  16. Incredible ~ this was made 13 years ago; a lot has happened in the last decade. The thing is, there’s always a lot going on but the crucial difference now is, we know so much more about it all. The key to secure knowledge is distribution and reliable replication.

    The US deep state apparatus is fighting a desperate rear-guard action now, trying aggressively to culture-jam our collective memory. Impossible. So if you are experiencing confusion, there is a good reason. The US is guilty of just about every crime in the black book, but will be accountable ~ eventually.

    Regimes can always pay their historians, but history is not for sale. Good journalism is really a type of dynamic historiography ~ a living record. You can select your topic, even make up facts, but nobody can fake ‘kamma.’ Honesty emerges from a place that is profoundly metaphysical.

    Good to hear James Bamford again. A bit of an update here
