    Here you go - vigilante justice Snohomish county style:

    America is weak, and under attack.


    So I think we can all agree there is reasonable suspicion that we are being fucked with by Russia. It is basically a fact they fucked with the last election right? Putin is very authoritarian, so it seems highly irrational to still put any trust in him not being owned by putin. They fucked with our last election things have grown increasingly politicized to the point many processes of our government seem to not be functioning. They are now destabilizing our country with misinformation meant to sew social unrest. China has been buying up our assets for years. Do you really think they aren't capable of working together? Ok, how about separately? OK, even if all that is just bullshit, there is still the gradual push towards authoritarianism that has been present for decades. Even if you don't believe it is a concerted effort towards it, this country is still weak. Its people have lost all ability to discuss things and form their own ideas. The primary way people process information about the world is an interaction between themselves and a screen. We are all easily misled. The internet has promised freedom of speech, which is great, and valuable, but if we are all sheep, irrelevant. It has also brought the ability to easily misinform. We also believe in American exceptionalism to such an extent that it does not even occur to many of us to question it, it is taken by so many to simply be a fact of life. Even for those of us intellectually aware that it isn't, it is hard to see past it. But there was Roman Exceptionalism long ago, until there wasn't. If we don't want to end up on the ash pile of history we need to wake the fuck up and realize we are under attack.

    Sound like bullshit? You don't like my politics and think I may be a libtard, conservadipshit or to totally be wrong about something or other? Fine whatever cool, but risk vs reward, theres only one choice to bet on. Read some art of war people. Remember your paranoia may be just that, but never let your guard down. Regardless of if you can wrap your head around all of this, there is enough evidence that we should all wake the fuck up and realize its not just our national secuity that is at risk, but the American Experiment. Not the American Dream, the capitalist dream, the white picket fence and a safe secure shelter from which to work and consume to feed the rich. Capitalism was not the American Expiriment. Capitalism was nothing particularily unique, or special, what made America special, special enough to be refered to as an expirment, was the idea that the people own the government.

    That idea, is brand spanking fucking new in the world, is under attack. We live in a crazy era. Globalization and our technological progress will continue to change the world. There is a push towards authoritarianism that I find impossible to deny, and very troubling. There is every possibility the American Experiment will come to and end, its idealism its very weakness, so easily torn appart, and demonstrated, for all of history, that people are unable to govern themselves.

    Our founding fathers were smart and wise men, but they did not see television, the internet, and globalized super corporations. They did not forsee people so rich as to outrank many nations. They did not forsee the ability of capitalism to undermine democracy. The news propaganda would have us believe socialism is the enemy of democracy, but unchecked capitalism is its enemy in this country. Democracy was the sacred part of america, freedom and liberty, and justice for ALL. Capitalism was just the economic system that seemed best suited to that, and was chosen by default. There is nothing sacred American about it.

    Why do I talk abut economic systems? Because black people woudnt be as angry about slavery if we had made a place for them in our economy, or if we had a justice system that wasn't predatory and didn't need to continually feed on the poor. That is a symptom of everything that is wrong with this country. So is small businesses being fucked into closing during this pandemic with no local control. Trump seems inept, but you cannot deny his behavior would perfectly match someone intentionally destabilizing the country to lead us towards authoritarianism. The possibility is high enough, that with the obviously astronomical risks if true, that it is not rational for anyone who loves this country or values their own wellbeing to contine to trust him.

    America is on its fucking knees. You think it can't happen but democracy will be a hickup on the road to totalitarianism. I feel crazy saying this stuff, but honestly I add up the pieces and I cannot deny any part and I cannot deny the whole that is made from the parts. Our electoral process is broken, There is every chance Trumptard will be reelected. People have literally been brainwashed by the 24 cycle of outrage porn. The endorphins that releases have fried their brains. I am not being metaphorical, its a medical fact, research to prove it or no. They will be led, not like sheep, but cheering and jeering their way to their own slaughter.

    But it doesnt have to be this way. There is strength in democratic ideals. The electoral process is broken, we cannot rely on electing the right guy to save us. The idea of elections was not the original democracy though, at the very start, for the greeks, democracy grew out of the idea that people should have a democratic dialogue, should discuss ideas with their neighbors, with people who both agreed and disagreed with them. That they should be able to do so with open minds. The cops do not want to be lackeys of the rich. The myth of the birth of a cop is that they were a high school bully looking to feel powerful, but the much more common reality is that when they were a child they learned the badge meant a good guy, a hero, a public servant, and I believe many of them struggle with seeing themselves as part of a system where it is hard to believe that is the case. We have to talk to them, figure out some policiy changes that can happen from the ground up. That Bellvue Police Chief wanted to listen, he wanted to talk. Having a real dialogue with any crowd of protesters is a tall order, but even if the dialogue didn't figure out anything, the intention was established. What I saw, was a cop with a good heart who wants a better way of doing things.

    The privatization of prisons, and the predatory nature of the justice system do not set the police up for success. If together with th e police, we can send policy up the chain of democracy, instead of down it, the senate and congress, with the will of a large majority of the people, can overcome or impeach a hostile presedent for obstructing the will of the people. Is this one issue something we can all agree on? If you really really just believe in the free market, perhaps you can have empathy for disenfranchised former slaves, and perhaps see that as a point to give a little on, given the historical circumstances? It would pacify the protesters, what do you just really believe we shouldn't pacify them, we should teach them a lesson? Really, is that all that important in the face of foreign interference to cling to the idea that justice has to be punitive, an idea so primitive it was literally mans first concept of justice extending beyond vengeance, and was never actually part of the American experiment, and again, simply chosen by default? Are you going to cling so desperately to some capitalistic free for all mentality that you percieve as being somehow American, at the cost of fighting and dividing our country while the real American ideals are under undeniable attack from without?


    I know lots of us are smart. Even the smart, aware, and woke among us must reflect, and reconsider how much we are being controlled. Some of us think we rise above it to be free, but lately I have been seeing the chains and the strings in ways I never had before. This is all what the protests are about though isn't it? Even if its not all getting articulated, people know this is all true, don't they? We need to wake up, reestablish our ability to find common ground, to talk to people. America has been sliding further and further towards it just not being socially acceptable to challenge someones view. Facebook is an echo chamber for likes, and that is basically the democratic forum these days. We need to create it. Even the brainwashed are capable of having empathy and finding common ground, and if we don't we may live through even more interesting times to come.



    Ahhhhhhh. I feel better.

    There was a peaceful protest in front of the capital building in Idaho this weekend. Was not large but more attendance than the open up protest from a few weeks ago.

    So let’s play this out.
    A bunch of people from (Everett?) march To Snohomish. Set aside the question of why For now. And let’s say one of them breaks a window.

    What are Rambo and Rambette gonna do? Isn’t it murder in WA for a civilian to kill a looter when their life is not at risk? Have these two been deputized by the city police?
