Raise of the machine........

Bakunin has sometimes been called 

the first theorist of the "new class", meaning 

that a 'class' of intellectuals and bureaucrats 

running the state in the name of the people or 

the proletariat – 

but in reality in their own interests alone. 

Bakunin argued that the "State has always been 

the patrimony of  some privileged class: 

a priestly class, an aristocratic class, a bourgeois class. 

And finally, when all the other classes have 

exhausted themselves, ....

the State then becomes the patrimony of 

the bureaucratic class and then falls—or

if you will, rises—to the position of a machine.

Between You and Me.....


Between you and me 

You and I know the truth.....

But I have my people behind me.

---Mr. Anonymous.

         *       *       *        *        *

I also took advantage of the fact that 

I was widely admired in my and their community, 

which disabled them from sharing their story and 

brought hardship to them when they tried because 

people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. 

I didn’t think that I was doing any of that 

because my position allowed me not to think about it.

---Louis C.K.

Quote of the day.......


The study of history is a powerful antidote 

to contemporary arrogance. 

It is humbling to discover how many of 

our glib assumptions, 

which seem to us novel and plausible, 

have been tested before, 

not once but many times and in innumerable guises; 

and discovered to be, 

at great human cost, 

wholly false.

-- Paul Johnson.

Real world........


The real world is a place where it's hard sometimes 

to find people who will listen with an attitude 

that they might actually be convinced of something,

Instead, what happens in most of the real world is 

that people don't listen at all.


They aren't looking to actually learn anything 

about you or about what you think. 

It's a place where people take sides 

rather than trying to understand - 

are they still on the right side? 


They care mostly about their side winning.


---FBI Director James Comey. 2017
Convocation speech at Howard university.

No more concentration camps........


I tried to look away,

but he would hold my face,” she said.

So I was forced to look into his eyes.

And I felt disgust and shame, and

like nobody would ever think of me as being

clean again after being this close to the devil.

His energy was so sinister.

--- Selma blair.

You have to get it all out in the open and

in the light so that we can really understand

how pervasive this is,” McAdams said.

I think we almost have to exhaust ourselves

sharing our experiences before

the rebuilding can begin.

And hopefully...........

we never slip back into this darkness again.


----Rachel Mc Adams.

the Olympics had been her dream since she was a child,

Quote of the day......

Human nature itself is evermore 

an advocate for liberty. 

There is also in human nature 


a resentment of injury, and 

indignation against wrong. 


A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. 


These amiable passions, are the "latent spark"… 


If the people are capable of understanding, 


seeing and feeling the differences 


between true and false, 

right and wrong, 


virtue and vice, 

to what better principle can 


the friends of mankind apply 

than to the sense of this difference?


-- John Adams
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
