Wanting people to see the truth is now officially a crime punishable by 35 years. Orwell said it well. A momentous bold brave move by a young soldier which caused a chain reaction throughout the world ends up with her (Chelsea Manning) going to prison for 35 years. What does that say about society? It says that those who run this world and send young poor people off to kill other poor people only really care about maintaining their power and wealth. Lies, deception and bias are their basic tools of communication in this empire of lies and truth teller is seen as the enemy.
Music wise – Dr. Groove’s choices were influenced by the picnic of electric which is coming up. We’ve got some John Grant and Warpaint making an appearance.
