It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

The Big Lie - The Daily Beast

The Big Lie - The Daily Beast
Michael Thomas writes beautiful prose. His description of the violence that will follow the soon-to-be uprising will be a spendid rebuttal to more than 30 years of greed and graft. Recently, I watched a wonderful BBC series about the great writers of the Romantic period. William Wordsworth went to Paris to witness the French Revolution first-hand. The relentless bloodletting got to him and he fled back to England. When I peel back the layers of bankers, lobbyists, politicians, and media who participated in the raping of the world, I can understand the need for the wet work. I expect when the killing starts it will be very bad indeed, only stopping after tellers and security guards litter the tops of the piles.
