We are living in strange times but noting that we are experiencing was not warned about long ago.
We are just too busy, distracted by design, to notice the persistent patterns.

I wonder what good it will do to repeat decades of research on mother-infant separation when current research is systematically shredded, manipulated, twisted, repressed, bought, fabricated, intentionally confused, in a world where confusing has become the preferred policy. After all, political propaganda is a powerful form of control. My favorite is the report that Building 7 had collapsed on 9/11 twenty-minutes before the building collapsed. The first irony is that Building 7 could be seen behind the BBC reporter describing its collapse. The greater irony is that no one seemed to care who wrote the script? Cut. On to the next media event.
Strategically separating children from parents to achieve a political goal is planned, intentional torture of innocent children. A 2017 US Government Report describes the widespread use of separating families as a matter of policy, pre Trump. Since 2005, as a matter of procedure and policy, border agents routinely separate children and families intentionally, as punishment or consequences, through what the DHS, (the Department of Homeland Security) call its Consequence Delivery System. These consequences are meant to deter future migration, often regardless of international protection or other humanitarian concerns. Who cares? A few thousand kids? They call it collateral damage, often a small price to pay to achieve a political goal. (I often wonder, for those who wrote the script, were the lives lost on 9/11 collateral damage?)

Speaking with a colleague whose husband had, what we plebeians (commoners) would call, an aristocratic title, noted, “He was bred to believe he was superior.” From his perspective what we might call arrogant is simply how reality is. When one’s republic dumbs-down into an Oligarchy, as former President Jimmy Carter describes has taken place in the United States, all the underlying assumptions regarding democracy, the rules and morality that govern society we are taught in school are off. We are witnessing what Chris Hedges, John Taylor gatto and Noam Chomsky call class warfare, a very old story indeed.

As with most of the world I have been watching with amazement recent events, unprecedented in our history. We live in perhaps the most critical generation of all time. Our fate and the fate of every living thing rests in our hands. We are responsible, not the corrupt politicians and their corporate cronies who are placing bets using our name and our resources.
Years ago I was walking in front of the Ann Frank House in the Netherlands with a Dutch friend who kept saying ‘before the war,’ or ‘after the war.’ When I asked what that meant he explained that deep inside everyone who lived through the Nazi occupation was ashamed because together they could have prevented the holocaust, but did not. Fascism wrapped in the American flag is still Fascism.

Media has a major role to play in the mediation of consciousness, the mediation of reality.
Three points of view:
To help bring some perspective to the shock many are feeling I invite you to hold and ponder together three interrelated points of view.

Culture is a meta-ego created and sustained by the same source, fear and conflict, which spawned our personal ego. This meta-ego suffers from the same dis-eases; comparison, jealously, revenge, self-centered aggression, depression, pride, humiliation and all the rest. Culture is a group mind and that mind was created and shaped by the same egotistical fearful selfishness that defines our individual images of self. When that image is not – neither is the disease.

"There is a good principle that created order, light and man; and a
bad principle that created chaos, darkness and woman."
Pythagoras (circa 582-507 B.C.)
(In Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex, 1949/2010).
Gender Inequality has existed ever since human history has been written. Pythagoras has given a moral definition of being male and female that has set humanity and its civilizations on a collision course with the extinction of Homo sapiens. No species on this planet is as violent toward its females and her offspring than Homo sapiens.
There is not a theistic religion on this planet that has affirmed the full equality of the feminine

Happy Fourth of July, bombs bursting in air, the war torn flag still waving, barely.
Corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people, until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
