  1. Wow. I wrote a fairly long response to your reply and it disappeared from the screen when I hit send. I don’t think it went through. I’m dealing with censorship these days. Apparently the trump Crime Family is worse than previous U.S. administrations when it comes to complete obedience to the ownership class.

    I hear what you’re saying. I believe that our need to become more compassionate is even more important than our need to become more intelligent, though we need both. We literally have millions of people who know that our government separates poor families, puts children in cages and holds back basic necessities – from children! – and who don’t care. We have a severe crisis of a sickness that permeates the soul, not just the mind. Of course they’re related, the two traits feed off each other.

    It takes a low level of intelligence to listen to the bile spewed by parasitic predators who base their ideology on hate and violence. And it takes a serious lack of compassion to accept these vile ideas and support them enough to allow them to be used to justify violence against innocent people. We’re at a crossroads…

    1. It looks like all your comments got through.

      My theory is changing technology. I have to click on things 2-3-4 times before they respond. It happens everywhere, Twitter, Youtube, WordPress, opening new tabs in the browser, etc. Sometimes you can’t tell if your click worked, or not.

      Maybe this is what it feels like to be a product/user, sold to advertisers (and the NSA). I don’t know what I’d pay for ad-free Google Chrome. Already pay to much to my internet service provider.

      1. I’m sure there are a few reasons. We make a lot of money constantly putting out new technology. The problem with our system is that we no longer try to perfect them. We’re only concerned with making money with them.

  2. I love Alexandria Ocadio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman. Unless compassionate liberals take over the democrat party, there is no chance of the people of the United States escaping the bondage of corporate control. Parasites have almost complete control of the economy and a good portion of government on all levels.

    People need to wake up and see what is actually happening instead of obeying our owners and believing the despicable lies spewed by their obedient employees in corporate media.

    Keep spreading facts, it’s our only hope.

    1. I absolutely agree with all you say. Bernie used the term “corporate socialism” in his George Washington Univ speech last month. Kirsten Gillibrand spoke about “corruption” in the last Democratic debate. Our leaders (some) are trying to lead, trying to step-up the game.

      Bernie works so hard to break the path, and thank God he’s cleared the way for people like AOC. (Forgive me if my mind conjures up images of John the Baptist and Jesus!) But people need to get smarter. Quicker. It’s not like there aren’t several catastrophic disasters waiting to happen. We don’t have time. I don’t know if we’re going to make it. I mean “we” the world, much less the United States.

      For the past few years, I’ve been congratulating myself on my age, believing I won’t be around to see much worse. Then, one day, I wondered… what if… reincarnation…?

      “That’s a dirty, dark joke, God,” I said. “Not funny.”

      1. I hear what you’re saying. I’d say our need to become more compassionate is even more important than our need to become more intelligent, though we desperately need both. We literally have millions of people who know that our government is separating families, putting children in cages and holding back basic necessities – from children! and do not care. We’re facing a severe crisis of a sickness that permeates the soul, not just the mind. It’s sick and despicable on a scale that is scary. Of course they’re related, the two traits feed off each other. It takes low intelligence to listen to the bile spewed by parasitic predators who obviously base their ideology on hate and violence. And it takes a lack of compassion to accept torture and violence as a way of life. We are at a crossroads…
