    OMG. My favourite author, Hannah Arendt. And that sentence is soooo valid today. We are being robbed of what the West built with great difficulty: freedom, the rule of Law… And we are doing close to nothing. Thanks for the quote.

    • Everything you said is true. We are doing almost nothing. At one point, it won’t matter. It will be to late.

        Afraid so. Seriously afraid. Problem is, I am a bit too old to go marchin’ from Selma To Montgomery, so to speak. But surely, there must be something that can be done? I’ve been having this conversation with several E-Friends. There must be something we can figure?

  2. I’m with your. I’ve done years and years of demonstrating, going door to door, working for candidates, etc. I don’t know where our back up is???? None of us have really been taught how to fight our own governments. On purpose, of course. They want complete control over the masses and teach everyone how to police themselves and keep others in line. It’s sick and pathetic, but it works for THEM. The things we used to do (above) no longer work because no one is listening and no one cares what people think or want. We don’t have people in office who work for anyone but themselves. It’s all about greed and power over others. I’m not really sure what we can do, SINCE THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE MAKE THEIR OWN LAWS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. Argggg! Insane. I don’t think for a single minute that the idiot we have would have the armed forces open fire on us. AND, even worse, they would do it. That to me, is more pathetic than the idiot himself.

    During Kent State, when the ROTC/army shot and killed students, the guy running the show told now of the teachers to make the kids more or they would open fire and shoot them. These were unarmed college students, some of whom did not even know what was going one, they were just walking by. So that moron followed orders and murdered kids with books in their arms. The teacher was HYSTERICAL, trying to get the kids to run. It was horrific. Brainwashed military would open fire on kids and any of us, without even thinking that we’re the people THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTING. I don’t know what we can do. I think something will happen eventually but the tech will work against us.
