  • The Twilight of Democracy in the United States. Architecture of a Totalitarian Police State. “The United States has erected the legal and institutional architecture of a totalitarian police state. Institutionally, the national security autocracy has merged with the military, law enforcement and a vast private intelligence network to create a massive physical apparatus of repression that possesses panoptic powers. Legally, an extensive framework of legislation threatens individual freedoms in the name of providing security for the American people. Slowly, methodically and deliberately an apparatus of legal repression has been erected that abolishes significant constitutional protections guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, rendering genuine civil liberties into a set of arbitrary privileges to be withdrawn at the will of the state.” {GlobalResearch}
  • CDC Now Says 94% of COVID Deaths Had an Underlying Condition {YDN} Don’t most people alive have an underlying condition?

  • Ending a sentence with a period, as the English language requires, is seen as negative by “youngsters used to communicating electronically” who “break up their thoughts by sending each one as a separate message, rather than using a (period), which they use only to signal they are annoyed or irritated.” The end of the message is already the end of the sentence. {Daily Mail} If, as an American, you feel triggered by the phrase “Full stop” (because it’s a period, what the heck?) then understand the history of it and you’ll see why it makes sense.
  • “Aristophanes’ original plan was that there should be a high dot (˙) for the end of a sentence, a middle dot for a completed section of a larger thought (·), and a low dot which broke ideas up still further. His high dotted, completed sentence was called periodos, and it refers to an entire entity, a nugget of thought or time or experience with a start and a finish. From this came the idea of the final flourish, the mark that provides a boundary between one idea and the next. So in a sense, at the end of a period lies a full stop, although no one ever says that.” {BBCAmerica} Just think, something useful you propose today could still be used in some form two thousand years from now.
