Data Is Power...


From the comments on An Open Letter to Facebook:

"They haven't learned that the new, softer dictatorships do not make the same mistakes as the old ones when it comes to enforcing conformity and rigidity of thought and they have the technology to make that task much easier.

This isn't the fight to give up on. "

Lo and behold, Mr. Overlord -
this comment alone is worth to elaborate another post on!

An Open Letter To Facebook...

 "Apparently, you can post "Death to America" with impunity. You can call for the elimination of the White Race. You can easily express your belief that all republicans and conservatives should die. You can even write how you would like to see a Senator or President of the United States assassinated, and Facebook will do nothing about it. You can lie about a pandemic. You can use Facebook apps to overthrow a government, as the Taliban just did, and Facebook will maintain a constant state of inertia. Make a statement about Afghans suffering what you believe they deserve, however, and suddenly, there's 'Community Standards'" -- The Overlord

The Sisyphus of Kabul (Part Two)


"To each comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour..." -- Winston Churchill

The Sisyphus of Kabul (Part One)


"Yea and I beheld Sisyphus in strong torment, grasping a monstrous stone with both his hands. he was pressing thereat with hands and feet, and trying to roll the stone upward toward the brow of the hill. But oft as he was about to hurl it over the top, the weight would drive him back, so once again to the plain rolled the stone, the shameless thing. And he once more kept heaving and straining, and the sweat the while was pouring down his limbs, and the dust rose upwards from his head..." -- Homer, "The Odyssey", Book XI.

Critical Race Dogsqueeze...

"Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point where he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself or others. And having no respect, he ceases to love..." -- Fyodor Dostoevsky, "The Brothers Karamazov"

"To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists of holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture..." -- Thomas Paine, "The American Crisis"

Two Diseases...


"In light of all the recent talk of new mask mandates, new shutdowns, and more-draconian restrictions, we may have to draw two unmistakable conclusions: the first is that "the shot" does not work. The second is that the people who are supposed to be "in charge" don't know what to do except to double down on fucktard. It should now be unmistakably clear that they have never known what do...and apparently do not care. You could easily be forgiven for starting to believe that these extraordinary levels of incompetence and venality are not mere accidents of personalities or failures of systems -- they are, and have been, deliberate acts undertaken for specific purposes." -- The Overlord
