The moment I wake up... -- should say a long and don't stop far as -- go praying for you. All while on this tip-tapping business. Read Decline in the Fall (Or Late Summer, Anyway) and struck by the intro that goes:
I am not sure why people write columns. Partly from boredom, I suppose, or lack of anything better to do. Partly from exasperation. Yet partly from the hope that if enough people collectively become aware of problems, they might, just maybe, do something about them. I can’t believe this any longer. Today’s crimes, lunacies, and decays are too many, profitable, and intractable. We are racing out of control toward some as yet dimly limned catastrophe. Hang on and take the ride.
Why [people] write? is a gripper for me. As with, 'why read?' Or, watch the talkers and mini YT docs? As for what, and how tight to hold a small and don't deviate-from list: Sites to visit, all else get no clicks.
Considering pulling back to seven. Crimes/BBB. PC Roberts. Unz and The Saker. For headlines; Drudge and Zero Hedge.That it oh stricto. Somone I know's blog. "Anymore for anymore?" Nah, that'll do.
Not those might stop viewing are bad uns but need to intermittent fast and diet.
Knock out these posts imagining a handful might look but back to '....why?'
-- tis therapy. There's this. An exercise. Freestyling immediacy. Processing, and for me and thereby, done unto God who is present.
Concede am always harbouring lingering embarrassment when doing em. Yet, like dancing in a disco, it's not about what looks like, feel the beats and do what-have-you.
To address the hope and if enough people collectively...? Writer -- Fred Gibbon -- goes on to proclaim the redundancy and could read as... a right downer. Includes one overstated clanger do better to debate. In fact, the whole 'closed-beyond-thus thinking' needs a shaking-up. Would be bold and underlined in my version of his lament.
Read almost skipping through it. And with 226 Comments, will make this later's input.
Need to find strategies for sanity inducing. Stuff to help build and not flounder about goin' the same ol' same 'ol.
The use of the internet is a high priority in all but abstainers, and virtual-abstainers. There are many who don't much do/use/click-on -- at all. Get my smiles and pat on the back. The internet has been a head-scrambling deception, whilst letting the lights go on and the rot. Seeing the ruinous liars running the world, darn-goes and knocks out us as opposition.
Total two edges. Takes my near-on decade of indulgence to see this. The high point was about 2012. No way is for regaining, plus the participators are most all knackered off and gone. What's needed is the decline and, not a fall -- but, a new opening. Somehow in people bud-up and get local. If at all and to this degree, there'll be an upsurge and people-power. Less net except for more email exchanges, or at least roundtable type vid. things. Comments on posts can show a bit of life. Anything but more, all stare, sit and stop.
Into the political-reality world it's hard not to engage online but this the big Q&A -- Then What? In the swamp and think chatter etc. = action etc.
One full-agreement with Fred is; I can’t believe this any longer. That many, or you have to wonder 'any' will:
...become aware of problems, they might, just maybe, do something about them.
Proviso and an "IF... and God willing, somehow when the troubles get going in the UK and like and proper, some go with the Govt. and become their forces, some resist through communing and community acts.
This one reason it's hard to listen to the voices calling out the info-war as the frontline. Actually, it is, but not in the way commentators seem to perceive. Said before, the only purpose of info-sharing -- OK the... main purpose -- is to encourage a replication and another communicator. Audience and spectating are not that useful in the fight with central oppression HQ.
As a way to introduce a subject to someone "hear this" can be helpful but unless we up and output it's useless. This is why no one cares about the state of the world: "Nothing we can do about mate...". Understandable and a balanced assessment. We only might face the stomping boot early enough if we become active. This takes inter-personal connections. The web undermines in the paradoxical debilitating combining of social -and- media.
Reckon the presumed growing current purge on and off the net for the controversial is a trap. How to let out some steam and then put the lid on? Reinstate the websites on the mega-platforms.
So hope somehow the dictator dingbats who run the web sanitise their outfits. They let their bitter and proud resolve lead the way. Of course, they are-ran, not run. The obvious scam will build the battle and give way as pressure increases. A return to pre-shut/down. Say before about 2016.
Go further, with WordPress beginning to jump in (see Jay Dyer) it could benefit the wider if there was a whole lot less.
The one most essential software tool is email. Websites -- on current projections and legal direction -- will disallow all but...
Better skedaddle. Leave this gabble for any stray cats -- can't imagine why? -- coming on for some truthscoop. All m'sayin' is respect. And this takes the difficult movement to express ourselves and face rejection. Like here. Boo hoo bah.
