Listen to a reading of this article:

Make no mistake, the US is being entirely pragmatic in its Ukraine proxy war. It gets to shore up control over its European vassals, preoccupy Russia and bleed its coffers, expand its military, advance its information interests, and all it costs is a little pretend empire money.

So of course the empire provoked this war and sabotaged peace at every opportunity. Of course it did. Why wouldn’t it? It stood everything to gain and very little to lose. I mean, unless you count greatly increasing the possibility of nuclear annihilation.

Empire apologists constantly comparing mounting tensions with Russia and China to the beginning of World War Two wouldn’t be as much of a problem if our entire civilization hadn’t been propagandized for generations into believing World War Two was awesome and good. Our deliberately reinforced cultural fascination with that war now has everyone saying “That bad government is Hitler and we’re the good guys who are fighting Hitler and we need to go fight Hitler as soon as possible!”

World War Two was the single worst thing that has ever happened. Period. It is only because of mountains of propaganda that comparisons to the lead-up to WWII don’t have everyone saying “Okay well let’s ramp up diplomacy, de-escalation and detente to make sure that never happens again.”

Imagine being such a pathetic limp-dicked cuck that of all the problems in the world you choose to spend your time shrieking about “communism” and “wokeness”.

Western rightists are freaking out more and more about communism. We’re no closer to communism than we were 30 years ago, their thought shapers just changed the definition of “communism” to mean having a government and sometimes seeing a Pride flag.

A lot of the “anti-wokeness” thing seems to come from people knowing they’re being manipulated by the powerful but having no lucidity on the matter, so they end up going after the wrong targets. It’s not all hateful bigotry; a lot of it is just confusion about where the enemy is. People have an intuitive sense for when they’re being manipulated, but figuring out exactly how mass-scale manipulation is manufacturing consent for the empire takes a lot of learning, and none of it is information they give you in school or teach you in the mainstream news.

Liberals who exploit social justice in a cynical and transparently phony way are largely responsible for this dynamic. People can smell phoniness, and they’re smearing that smell all over real social justice issues.

This is not to say that this dynamic I’m pointing to is the sole driver of all “anti-woke” sentiment; a lot of it is just garden variety prejudice and hate. Civilizations built on genocide, oppression and othering will necessarily have a lot of that lingering around, both conscious and unconscious. But there’s also this other dynamic of confusion which can be addressed.

Whatever your motives, spending your time fretting about “wokeness” is counter-productive. At best you’re just making the world less pleasant for marginalized populations while taking your crosshairs off of real power structures as humanity hurtles toward extinction on multiple fronts, and at worst you’re also fueling the very thing you’re trying to get rid of by providing evidence that there are all these hateful bigots who need to be forcefully opposed.

Living in a liberal western democracy means you have the freedom to criticize your own government for its tyranny, and the press has the freedom to hammer you with propaganda to ensure that you never do.

“I’m so glad I don’t live in a country like Russia or China where people are forbidden to criticize their government. I live in the west, where I’m free to criticize Russia and China all I want.”

We need to get a handle on this climate thing so we can leave a healthy world for our children, our children’s children, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriends.

Eastern philosophy is better than western philosophy. Western philosophy is a bunch of miserable wankers trying to think their way into truth and meaning, and failing. Eastern philosophy actually discovered and promulgated practical methods for attaining happiness and inner peace in life.

Western philosophy is millennia of people going “I’m sure if we shape our head noises in the right way and put them in the right order everything will make sense.” Eastern philosophy is turning away from the head noises and going, “Okay, what’s really going on here?”

Trying to make sense of life using thought is like trying to solve an algebra equation using a hammer. It’s the wrong tool. Eastern philosophy discovered this thousands of years ago and set about creating and distributing the proper tools while the west kept hammering away at the textbook.

The difference between western philosophy and eastern philosophy is the difference between a poet who knows how to diddle words to craft a clever turn of phrase and a poet who actually has something real to say. The east plunged to the depths while the west bobbed on the surface.

The word courage tends to evoke images of heroes and daring rescues, but in real life courageous people mostly use that attribute for confronting uncomfortable truths within themselves.

  1. Realist :
    Your comment made no sense and was incoherent.
    You entirely missed the point of the article : “The difference between western philosophy and eastern philosophy is the difference between a poet who knows how to diddle words to craft a clever turn of phrase and a poet who actually has something real to say.” and commenced “diddling words”.
    To paraphrase Vonnegut, “Who is to be more pitied, a writer who is censored from telling the truth, or a writer who can publish anything, but has nothing to say?”
    As for creating conflict, I only create conflict it in the minds of those who disagree, by holding up a mirror of facts.

    1. My how full of yourself you are, and needlessly contentious.
      My comment may have made no sense to you, but your limited knowledge base may not be the measure of all things, as you seem to assume. Perhaps the deficiency lies within you own perceptions and understanding. Frankly, my words were quite straightforward and understandable with the slightest bit of effort from an egotistical polymath such as yourself. Actually, you must be as thick as a brick to miss the comparison I make between Western scientific reductionism and Eastern thought (of which the Confucianism you push is only one lineage), especially Buddhism which allows wisdom to slowly, holistically accrue short of dismantling the world with instrumentation and then trying to put the pieces back together and claim understanding via some model and some equation that is never the final word. To you, an analysis has no value or relevance unless it is achieved strictly via your mode of thinking.
      But even if, on the outside chance, you are right, what does it gain you or anyone to cast disdain upon others, creating ill will amongst them, assuming you have a single clue about how the human mind works and the species socializes. You actually think there is but a single representation of how the East and the West think and that you are sole proprietor of that orthodoxy? Think again. Moreover, you open your replies with insults, how is that supposed to “win friends and influence people?” Within 10 seconds of reading your opening lines, you have established yourself as nothing but a disagreeable troll.
      I am done with your foolish pomposity, especially if you think that citing Emerson or Vonnegut will show me how shallow and incoherent I am supposed to be.

      1. “… especially Buddhism which allows wisdom to slowly, holistically accrue short of dismantling the world with instrumentation and then trying to put the pieces back together and claim understanding via some model and some equation that is never the final word”
        As I said, diddling words.
        “… done with your foolish pomposity,…” Methinks the lady doth protest too much, particularly given the above quote.

        The secret is to be able to say much with very few words, not to obscure one’s confusion with verbiage.

        Buddhism is not a philosophy but an excuse to do as little as possible and hide from reality whilst hoping that some potential future life will be better than this. Confucianism is about making this life, for all around you, the best possible.

        The real influencers of history made very, very few friends, most of them were killed, poisoned or crucified by the rabble. A “Man” does not try to win friends, but merely attempts to be worthy of being a friend.

  2. Gregory Herr,
    This reply system stops working properly when it narrows to one word. All I intended in reply to you was a single emoji:
    The rest of what did appear was an entire response to a totally different discussion about America’s suicidal embrace of warfare and tyranny. Why it appeared here I have no idea.

  3. I am presently creating an additional minimum of 36,000 Dollars per month from home doing C80 very honest
    and clean on-line work from home. Website…….

    1. I need to clean my on-line work too… but perhaps I’m not being very honest about my C80… but the 36,000 per month is a bit elusive… can’t even reach 36,000 per annum

  4. Christianity, lslam and Buddhism all have mystics and dogmatics. I’ve met a few modern day Christian mystics and they’re delightful and raise the vibrations of love in others. The woke phenomenon is interesting. The right wing flexes against it and the globalists as the bogey persons (ha ha) that contaminate their traditionalism and pure capitalism. Conservatives seem to only understand what they personally experience. Dick Cheney having a lesbian daughter changed his mind. He’s now woke. The Davos globalists are right wingers, not communists. Maybe we should stop the war profiteering and nuclear threats, save the environment and give everyone free health care, food and shelter, then we can bicker about pointless tribal differences.

    1. Woke is not interesting unless you are the type who watches car races for the crashes. It’s a manipulative tool to subjugate the masses, of which you are one. Buying into the myth that it is some part of the evolution of humans to a higher plane is what makes it happen. Another facet of the taking such a theory as fact is, by design, the acceptance of transhumanism which is an end goal of the manipulators. It has been stated, quite succinctly, that once you accept the mutilation of children, then you will accept anything. That is the endgame, compliance. And on the way there is a body count that cannot be measured in bodies alone.

  5. There actually is a really vivid parallel today to the start of WW2, but to what really happened, not the court historians’ version, which is no more than recycled wartime disinformation. It’s absolutely eerie how the US is using the corrupt, racist nationalist regime in Kiev exactly the way Britain used the corrupt, racist nationalist regime in Warsaw in 1939, as a sacrificial lamb to achieve the greater policy goal of neutralizing a much feared economic rival and plundering its resources. And the effort is accompanied by the same saturation level fake news/demonization campaign, again against a second-tier power that poses no threat to us save daring to assert its national sovereignty and its right to security. While we hear much about the supposed myth of the Aryan superman, its ethnocentric analogue in the east, Pan-Slavism, has vanished down the memory hole. The Polish General Staff planned to put this dogma into action, in an invasion plan code named “Case West,” quickly drawn up after London gave its deceitful false promise of unconditional support. In it they planned an attack which they believed would see their army, like Kiev’s today, the fourth strongest in Europe, seizing another hundred miles of German territory, including Berlin itself, after a four week campaign.
    This is the level of madness that is loose in the world again today, this time with nukes, and a crew of arrogant imbeciles in Washington – what could possibly go wrong?

    1. Not implying the Poles weren’t delusional enough but got a source for their “Case West”?
      The overarching theme of both world wars was how no one could see where events were going to lead and no one could stop them. The present case is different in that we can plausibly assume a world war would lead to the use of nuclear weapons and fairly unimaginable death, which should dissuade anybody but arrogant imbeciles … oh wait.

      1. Yes, the Sleepwalkers are at it again. But instead of the Europeans, this time they are led by the Americans. Who seem to believe in a genuine way that the US can unilaterally dictate its terms to the rest of the world by might. And onward they march, so certain that nothing could go wrong…

  6. OK so wokeness is about …. convincing the acronyms and their fans they’re under threat from the asleepers so they’ll submit to more government control? And the asleepers get convinced they’re under threat from the awokers so they’re more pliable too? I guess that’s better than simple mass insanity. Personally I’m looking forward to when you get to decide what species you are because I’m going to be a seagull. I may have to move to California, but it’ll be worth it. I’m going to be a male seagull named Carl and I’m going to open a Buddhist health food store and flight clinic that sells french fries and bits of fish.

    1. as long as your buddhist health food store is not a co-op, they’ll probably leave you alone.

      1. Just me and the flock.

  7. Western and Eastern philosophies were pretty close in the Antiquity because philosophers observed nature and derived lessons from it, like the cyclical movement of phenomena (seasons, rain, drought, day, night, birth, death) and nature was pretty much the same at their respective latitudes.

    Heraclitus and Lao Tzu’s VIth century BC world views, with phenomena being complementary and in motion toward their opposites, which the latter called the yin and yang dialectic proceed from the same thought family.

    Eastern philosophers were pretty set on ethics and even nowadays, past the Western-influenced Maoism, China is home to a Confucian revival based on a synthetic world view – hence the BRI.

    Buddha was also an ethicist who thought man was at the root of all his own problems because of the Three Poisons contained in his essence: delusion, greed and hate, to which he opposed the Three opposite Jewels that he should seek: wisdom, generosity and love.

    And then the West veered off on an analytic path and invented the notion of progress, which after all only means stricto sensu “move forward”. It was first used to describe the movements of Roman troops but acquired a positive moral connotation even though the guy who’s moving toward a wall at full speed is etymologically in great progress but it ain’t gonna last.

    Today’s dire environmental conditions are the result of progress.

    On this analytic path, Western philosophers gradually jettisoned parts of the whole, calling them medicine, physics, mathematics, sociology, psychology until the core philosophy became an elitist squabble. Descartes said “I think, therefore I am”, to which Sartre indirectly responded “No, I am therefore I think because existence precedes essence”, which hardly anyone gives a fuck about. Western philosophers started spending their time focusing on tiny bits of the whole picture that they observed under increasingly powerful microscopes while their coffee got cold and their wives shagged the postman.

    Christian religion didn’t help introducing Lucifer (etymologically the “light bearer”) who was going to liberate mankind from the inhospitality of God (nature). The more artificial the better. Send people to the moon, to Mars instead of sitting on your ass observing the perfect beauty of a flower as Buddha advised… Progress is by definition Luciferian and of course the honchos of the Luciferian civilization are themselves Luciferian.

    We naturally find the consequences of this in politics. According to HL Mencken (1880-1956), “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

    Terrorism, Russiagate, Covid, Ukraine and now carbon freak out, which is remarkably analyzed here:

    The Next Big Con – Net Zero Climate Change – The Expose (

    The glee with which the media are reporting that we’re gonna freeze our balls or starve to death next winter is strangely reminiscent of the original sin that kept our forefathers under control of the Church for so long. It’s probably not gonna be half as bad as we’re promised. People will be grateful and will vote for the same corrupt puppeteers who created the problem in the first place with a sigh of relief… :o)

  8. I think I have history figured out. The people living never let the truth be told. Thus it falls to historians to figure out what happened after everyone is dead. However they can only sift through the lies of the past. The only actual historical facts we leave to the archeologists.

    1. “History is a pack of lies on which we all agree”, according to Napoleon.

  9. Finally those Aliens piloting around those crazy flying saucers decided to schedule an appointment to introduce themselves to the world.
    Alien leader – What’s up good people!
    NATO – You should have said “we come in peace!”.
    Pope – What really means “good” for you?
    Biden – We are ready to establish an American embassy in your planet. We also will need access to all your facilities to be inspected by our FBI and CIA staff. Once you have delivered all your weapons and natural resources to be managed by our partners, we will give to you a green card and a Disney world ride for free. Facial masks and vaccines ID’s are mandatory. Any contact with Russia or China will make you our enemy. You are either with us or against us.
    Alien leader – Sorry, wrong planet. Bye.

  10. Somebody tell that poor brainless women that the reason for her high power bill is the blue & yellow flag in her Twit signature…..

    If everyone had a white, blue and red flag I’m sure power would be cheaper.

    1. Those flags have been around since the pandemic in some countries having public deficit due to the low incoming as a result of political policies to defeat the coronavirus. Even after the end of the pandemic the flags still on because the governments don’t have another sources of incoming to replace the exponential taxes and fees attached to those flags.
      That woman is right. You don’t.

  11. “Not the political doctrine of Hitler has hurled us into this war. The reason was the success of his increase in building a new economy. The roots of war were envy, greed and fear.” —
    Major General J.F.C. Fuller, historian, England

    “We didn’t go to war in 1939 to save Germany from Hitler…or the continent from fascism. Like in 1914, we went to war for the not lesser noble cause that we couldn’t accept a German hegemony over Europe.” —
    Sunday Correspondent, London (17.9.1989)

    “The enemy is the German Reich and not Nazism, and those who still haven’t understood this, haven’t understood anything.” —
    Churchill’s chief counsellor Robert Lord Vansittart (September 1940 to foreign minister Lord Halifax)

    “We made a monster, a devil out of Hitler. Therefore we couldn’t disavow it after the war. After all, we mobilised the masses against the devil himself. So we were forced to play our part in this diabolic scenario after the war. In no way we could have pointed out to our people that the war only was an economic preventive measure.”
    – US foreign minister James Baker (1992)

    “Atrocity propaganda is how we won the war. And we’re only really beginning with it now! We will continue this atrocity propaganda, we will escalate it until nobody will accept even a good word from the Germans, until all the sympathy they may still have abroad will have been destroyed and they themselves will be so confused that they will no longer know what they are doing. Once that has been achieved, once they begin to run down their own country and their own people, not reluctantly but with eagerness to please the victors, only then will our victory be complete. It will never be final. Re-education needs careful tending, like an English lawn. Even one moment of negligence, and the weeds crop up again – those indestructible weeds of historical truth.” – Sefton Delmer, 1904-1979, former British Chief of Black propaganda, said after the German surrender, in 1945, in a conversation with the German professor of international law, Dr. Friedrich Grimm

    “Estern Philosophy ; Confucius said it shorter and simpler :
    “The way of the superior person is threefold; virtuous, they are free from anxieties; wise they are free from perplexities; and bold they are free from fear.”
    ― Confucius
    He also gave this advice :
    “When the ‘Way’ prevails in the world, then be seen. When it does not, then hide.”
    ― Confucius

    Winston Churchill said, “Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities… because it is the quality which guarantees all others”.
    Or Martin Luther King Jr, who implored us to “build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear”.

    1. The historical narrative of history including ww2 has always been a distortion of the truth, one can sense before one knows the reasons why, and of course the anglo saxon west has always left a great deal to be desired when it comes to the whole truth, alas .

      1. In his very interesting 2016 booklet How Britain Initiated Two World Wars, historian of science, former honorary research fellow in Science and Technology Studies at University College, London and iconoclastic truth-seeker (at the expense of his academic career) Briton Nick Kollerstrom explains how, before the famous Blitzkrieg that everybody’s heard about through countless books, movies and articles whereby Moustache Man Bad drowned London, Coventry and Portsmouth under a deluge of fire from hell out of sheer malice from September 1940 to May 1941, the British RAF had in fact been extensively bombing German cities, including Berlin for… six months, from May to September 1940 as soon as Churchill ousted Chamberlain as Prime Minister! Which is strangely reminiscent of Bojo/Nato’s policies of pushing Russia to invade Ukraine after eight years of Nato-trained Ukies’ shelling of the Donbass and Bojo’s shattering peace negociations in April 2022 as did Churchill in July 1940. Churchill’s bombings were also a world firster in that it deliberately targeted German working-class civilians – contrary to international law among other more moral issues. Here’s an abundantly-sourced excerpt:
        Boris Johnson is a Churchill fan. You bet!

        1. 1984 had arrived early. Just like Ukraine today, not a single word was allowed that presented balanced or fair reporting. Hundreds of britons were arrested for ‘sedition’, supporting Mosley and not condemning Hitler. Just as 20,000 Americans supported Hitler at Madison Square in 39.
          The ‘Nazi’ (Bellamy) salute was the American salute from 1892 until December 1942.
          History is so inconvenient.

    2. So you don’t really dispense words to live by. Figures.

      1. You don’t appear to be able to read. Confucian philosophy has (as in the above instances) thousands of words to live by. Of course most people think that they are superior to those who went before and cannot or will not learn from their intellectual superiors. This is particularly noticeable in the USA.
        However here are a couple of further examples :
        “Some men’s words I remember so well that I must often use them to express my thought. Yes, because I perceive that we have heard the same truth, but they have heard it better.”
        –Ralph Waldo Emerson
        “Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings, so that you shall come easily by that which others have laboured for.”

  12. This article is one of the best that i have read for a long time, the eastern philosophy understands the problems correctly, while the west, well you know the rest, the western religion having always been a fraud has misled people for centuries, and not just the religion the whole mindset, science, politics, and philosophy has the mark of perversion all through it,and now it is coming to fruition, is it any wonder the west is mostly , yes you guessed it a hopeless wanker .

  13. Sometimes it takes a tool more powerful than a hammer to solve an equation, like, say, a Large Hadron Collider.
    Experience tells us that one should not be surprised nor disappointed when solving one such equation, to hopefully explain everything, inevitably leads to another followed by an endless regress of more equations and their accompanying metaphorical models, many very clever indeed.
    If you ever did encounter the actual last equation, the last turtle, or the last element in the set of all real numbers, this game, puzzle or challenge would be over and the time to commence another open-ended quest would be at hand. At least, that’s what the East tells us.
    This is, after all, entirely illusion, including both your failures and successes, your most sublime happiness and the utter nadir of your worst despair. It will all pass… and be replaced over endless cycles. Try to enjoy the ride even when rough and rocky, the contrasts are innate and inevitable. Stasis is oblivion, the abyss not even looking back.
    As Caitlin in effect says, simple logic tells you that simple logic, however useful (and she does use it a lot in all her columns), is not a panacea. You will never find one unless non-existence, unmarred by any reality, is your goal.

    1. Yes but Caitlin says it succinctly and clearly, you on the other hand ….

      1. @Realist: it reminds me of one of my favorite Dylan’s lines: “She knows there’s no success like failure and that failure is no success at all” :o)

        1. One of many lyrics by Dylan that my generation used to quote daily back in the 60’s.
          That one from Love Minus Zero/No Limit
          “She knows too much to argue or to judge.”

      2. How’s this? Fuck off.

        1. Once again the level of discourse rises to the dizzying heights of the Mariana Trench.

          1. Clearly succinct & succinctly clear. Rather appropriate in due time as well.
            Your pretentiousness doesn’t qualify as discourse, at any level.

            1. Whatever entity is truly ruling this country from Washington and its other fascist power centers would strike a deal with the Devil to maintain its world domination. It has done so with the Devil’s own spawn in Ukraine, namely Zelensky and his murderous band of Banderite Nazis. Washington is not simply ignorant or oblivious to this reality. It has been a willing and eager collaborator with the very same German Nazis who fought WWII against the US and the Soviet Union. We brought all the useful ones straight to the heart of America to work developing weapons for us in Project Paperclip (on the side they sent men to the Moon).

              Like the German Nazis the pseudo-democrats in Washington immediately lined up as mortal enemies of Russia and any country even slightly on the left of the political spectrum, or any country that would even do business with any vaguely “socialist” country. We have since unrelentingly fought both cold wars and hot wars against dozens of countries, killing and maiming millions, whilst dispossessing equally many now permanently homeless. We have allied this country’s military with the most hard-core fascist dictatorships, destroying genuine democracies in the process, countries that slaughter without compunction for religious reasons, along with their terrorist accomplices.

              Washington and its media puppets have absolutely no use for the truth whatsoever. The entire “history” of all its wars around the entire globe for the last hundred years is entirely contrived, a confected “matrix” comprising nothing more than a litany of false narratives that is never challenged, or totally ignored by the insider elites, their “Deep State” and the surface “establishment” which they fob off as “reality” to the somnambulant masses. Supporting Ukraine, Zelensky and all their lies and atrocities without the slightest hint of public protest or objection represents the total utter pacification of the “freedom and democracy” in the United States that its tyrannical government falsely claims to support. Up is down, black is white, war is peace, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength throughout the Western World today, entirely thanks to the tireless but malign actions of the American government to crush all dissent, independence or sovereignty of all other societies on this planet.

              I fear that Russia’s defeating the murderous Ukrainian fascists deliberately created and totally supported by Washington (it is even surreptitiously directly involved in the fighting) is the only hope for this world. Sad to say it is NOT “my country right or wrong.” My country is damned wrong and needs to be put right by somebody. If not by its own citizens, then let the job fall to Russia if they can do it. The bastards in Washington have cleverly cultivated massive antagonisms of numerous different identity groups (that it has colluded in creating) that are now constantly at each others throats, and that incipient civil war prevents most of our people from realising that their greatest threat comes from their own government, not Russia, not China, not Iran, not Venezuela, not the dozen other countries presently being bombed, sanctioned, blockaded or picked clean in acts of pure and simple piracy or grand theft.

              The cabal in Washington, protected and projected to the world by its corporate media and rubber stamped in its numerous malefactions by a mercenary congress transgresses in practically every way possible or imaginable and needs to be stopped. Joe Biden is every bit the equivalent of a mafia don who just happens to be paid out of the federal treasury, a bloodthirsty one who orders countless numbers of hits (as did the presidents before him), most often against innocents, every damned day of the week. As nothing but a sock puppet, he is so old and demented that he can barely read his scripts off the teleprompter. He and his handlers are fooling no one at this point. Probably the only thing keeping these American fascists in power is fear by the public that all this American murder and violence being meted upon dozens of foreign countries will be directed upon them if they protest too stridently. If they can destroy a president both while in office and after retirement with their lies, slanders, intrigues, espionage, violence and manipulation of the justice system, they can destroy any one or any large group, even organisations or whole cities. What Washington has evolved into and come to stand for over an entire human lifetime must not prevail or the future will be bleak farther than the mind can imagine.

          2. Why do you go around looking to create conflict? What does a self-announced superior being like yourself care about what others think?

            1. New column started in reply.

  14. The U.S. perpetrates endless war, this horrendous behavior fosters indignance and abhor.
    The weapon’s manufacturers eagerly profit; I’m beyond ready for them to face the docket.
    Shouldn’t the U.S. abstain, and withdraw their illegal forces from Ukraine?
    The U.S. should refrain from pretense and hate; isn’t it time for discourse and debate?
    Liberty and justice for all, I’m sensing this nation needs an overhaul!

  15. Free speech in America proven. Floyd in Minneapolis was free to say “ I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe”.

    1. George Floyd was nothing more than a trigger event. There are thousands to choose from for the desired effect. Governments and media decide which ones to use and promote.. America is too stupid to see they are being played and manipulated with each one.
