John Lewis just revealed himself as a selfserving, grandstanding, selfcentered fraud, as I have seen him to be for years now. "When you use your history as a hero of the Movement to disparage others because you never personally knew them, it is a slap in the face to all those people who fought hard and never made it into the history books or into Congress. It is a slap in the face to people like my grandmother."

To my friend who started  storm is coming, who I still respect: There are 6 captains on the Titanic. Four of them demand that the ship go faster in the same direction. One of them, a lady, of very questionable sincerity, says that maybe, possibly, under certain circumstances, don't look at my crossed fingers, I might want the ship to turn a little bit and to slow down a little bit, but you know, that really isn't possible we have to be real. And one of them, and old man with white hair but full of fire says that the ship is going too fast that it has to turn or it will hit the iceberg, that we will all have to stand together to overcome the forces that want to go straight and fast, and you say, folks we have to stand together and no matter what, vote for him or the lady? F*** you.

No credit to me, for years now, I pretty much live as though Creator is watching me every moment. I pretty much live accordingly. And it is so superior to all the other ways I've tried, so infinitely joyful, interesting, enriching, absorbing, challenging. One of the major ways, if not the major way, that we defend ourselves from a radically moral life, is the device, good. Being good. We use that name to turn the joy of radical virtue into the endured suffering of taking one's bitter medicine because it is good for us. That which is the joyful path is the radically virtuous path, the extremely virtuous path. And we have a trillion reasons that we've created for ourselves to not see it. Oh well. Thanks for hearing me. Hugs I will fail in trying to have radical virtue proliferate. But I will not fail to try. It is the hope. It is the only practical hope.

***** NY’s Public Theater cancels Palestinian production, ‘The Siege,’ it agreed to stage in May

"For anyone who wants to diminish murder and mayhem and terrorism around the world, and to protect the earth and everything in it from the ravages of capitalist greed – getting the United States off the neoliberal-neoconservative track that it has been on since at least the late 1970s should be Priority Number One. This means that the first order of business now is defeating Hillary Clinton....„

Video. Watch. Israel's policy of breaking the bones of Palestinians. Watch. You are funding this with your taxes. You are supporting this with your silence.

I voted for this Fascist snake twice: Bill Clinton gutted welfare and criminalized the poor, all while funneling more money into the carceral state.

***** ‘Barbarism by an educated and cultured people’ — Dawayima massacre was worse than Deir Yassin

Help requested: if you know who is playing in this year's Super Bowl, please make absolutely certain, not to tell me. Yes, I am not kidding. I always hated our worship of this type of competition, from my earliest memory. It is absolutely how we prepare our children and ourselves for colonial wars, and justifying the wars of economy that we participate in against each other, thinking that it is virtue. I hate it.

***** I was kindly asked if I knew of any Muslim Americans who distance themselves from so-called Islamic terrorists and I replied:  By a factor of 100, or 1000, or 10,000 Muslims are the victim of so-called Muslim terrorists. Frankly, I question the decency of Muslims in America who publicly decry so-called Muslim terrorists. Had I been alive in the time of slavery, or more particularly the time of Jim Crow, I would have decried the blacks who spoke out in favor of the white oppressors and against the black people struggling for their basic human rights. We Americans have slaughtered millions of Muslims in the last 50 to 100 years. Between us and the French and the British we have colonized, disrupted, terrorized, carved up the Muslim Middle East so that we could divide, conquer, oppress, and rape their resources. We have bombed advanced civilizations of Iraq back to the Stone Age, and Yemen, Libya, Lebanon and Palestine. I have trouble respecting a Muslim that speaks against resistance to this colonial oppression. But there are many. America and Britain have absolutely created Muslim terrorists. Without dispute Britain and America funded and armed the Taliban, a brutal, KKK version of Islam, as a proxy army against Russia in Afghanistan. Beginning in the 18 hundreds Britain, followed happily by America, funded the small KKK like Muslim sect now called Wahabi, that the vast majority of Muslims around the world they are not Muslims at all. Decade after decade after decade through today America and Britain fund them, now, as their proxy army against the government in lran.  All that I have just stated is very clear, my point being, that each and any point that I have just made can be quickly determined to be lie or fact by anyone with an interest to do so. And I have not spoken about how Britain and America have tormented, humiliated, desecrated the Muslims in the Middle East by thwarting the government that they seek to establish and installing instead of oppressive puppet regimes who screw their people, skim off oil revenues for themselves, but pass on the bulk of their people's wealth to western corporations. If Islam were not profoundly profoundly profoundly a religion of peace I can't explain why 1.5 billion Muslims in the world aren't at perpetual war against we Western barbarians.

***** 2010. This Saint, this Jew, is risking his life everyday in Palestine, Israel, to tell us the truth. Must read. Is Gideon Levy the most hated man in Israel or just the most heroic?

***** Some of us crave social power, social significance, the way a crack addict craves the drug, and or fears the lack of these things the way some people are terrified of torture and death.

Now Democrats, you educationally intellectually emotionally advantaged... what is it that you still don't understand about white male Republican's bullying, guns, hatred of human rights, women's rights, and minorities?

Till they recognize a better way to achieve social power, social significance, or a preferable substitute for these, they are not going to change their ways.  They prefer death over feeling weak (preferably your death... but even their own.)
