FK – After reading Kevin McAlister’s comment below it seems obvious that what I’ve felt about some of the Founders for some time is indeed true. They made a great leap forward, such a great leap that many today are obviously incapable of understanding much less valuing what they accomplished for us yet they were products of their time and monarchical culture whereby the elites made all the decisions and the unwashed masses were expected to know their place.
Washington was referred to as ‘his excellency’ during his term of office, our military still has an officer class that holds the power of life and death over the enlisted and the American flag flew over slavery for another 80 years until the blacks were elevated to another form of slavery and we were lowered to that same level by the results of a war that was waged over the power to tax as most are.
So it’s no surprise that our government, 200 plus years after its founding, still clings to many old world ways especially in the arena of foreign policy and war making though our empire is a far more humane colonizer than many of the past. Well, at least we don’t pull up outside a city’s gates and blatantly demand “Surrender or we’ll kill you all.” We just go to war for some excuse and kill millions for the false paradigm of democracy when the diplomats and spies and NGOs and corporate raiders et al fail to colonize by other means.
And on top of that we have, in a supposed free country. a group, ethnicity, race, religion, political organization whatever it really is, that we’re not allowed to question. This is preposterous to evil especially when considering that millions of ignorant mush heads think its OK because this tribe’s ancient tribal propaganda commands them to support them no matter what.
It’s a sickening horrifying situation. The ‘great deception’ has been with us for a long time. It’s nothing new.
I call them the unmentionables. In a free country there’s no such thing as a group whose motives cannot be questioned. When we have that we have a serious problem. We have a serious problem.
FK – I’d like to see/hear the entire speech by Avnery. I can’t find it on youtube.
How sad and pathetic that millions would be too scared to even watch this because of the multi-headed beast of the news/entertainment media and organized and clearly infiltrated religion that produces fear in the minds of the ignorant via key terms and phrases.
We’re going to have to fight our way to light at the end of the tunnel. Time to wake up and grow up.
Is their empire really crumbling?
FK – Nothing will get better until we become a nation of men again and develop the resolve to do what will be required. Too many are still in denial of this reality.

Some other points that shouldn’t be ignored:
FK – The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights. WE ARE!
And I’d bet those sailors didn’t wander in, they were likely on a mission. They didn’t look like normal sailors to me.
