"In 2001, I was there to see the third building come down, and what caught my attention were not the explosions, because I'm used to explosions. I spent two and a half years in Vietnam, so I'm used to explosions, but when I saw my fellow firefighters jump in a panic reaction to the loud noise of an explosion, which they're not used to, and they're not trained for, that's what shocked me."

Suddenly, though, many realize they've been shoved into a strange, hostile vehicle and taken for a ride to an unknown location, with their faces pressed to the floor. Most still insist it's not that absurd, much less horrifying, with normality returning in any case, and even if it isn't, the new normality isn't much of an inconvenience.

Socially, there's nothing to do but sit in a bar, but it's expensive, and you can't even talk much, with the loud music and several TVs on at the same time. For a young man with little money, a crappy job and few experiences beyond his small town or city neighborhood, enlistment to go overseas doesn't sound too bad.

Long subjected to white malice disguised as charity, black Africans wisely reject these genocidal toxins, so they've suffered the fewest Covid-related deaths, by far. Free from idiotic restrictions and fear mongering bombardment, my neighbors are relaxed and friendly. They're still safely snuggled in normality.

For helping Big Pharma to sicken, addict and kill over half a century, Fauci is rewarded with a bigger salary than any US government employee's, including the President's.

Covid is being deployed as a political, economic and biological weapon against as much of humanity as possible. Of course, Americans are also being culled.

Nothing about the Covid vaccine makes sense. If it's so safe, why would thousands of nurses rather lose their jobs than being jabbed? Battling Covid for a year and a half, they should know better than anybody what's what.
SHARE Wednesday, October 6, 2021 Reading Coetzee in Cape Town
For a novel about South Africa, Apartheid, post-Apartheid or just general collapse, Life and Times of Michael K remains, ultimately, too abstract. For something much more grounded, thus more terrifying, we must turn to Disgrace, published 16 years later, when more evidence has been gathered.

From your long balcony, you can scan humping black whales and sunning white babes, as you sip your Columella Red. Allowing yourself a bit of smugness, you congratulate yourself, for just a second, for being no white p*ssy.

Keep in mind, no matter where you travel, you'll always bring yourself along. If you aren't happy in your own head, in your own body, then no amount of wandering will change that.

As an outsider, I have no right to suggest Egypt should be anything but itself, but there's an internal squabble here, with public intellectuals assassinated, and even tourists massacred. There's an element that wants all foreign influences purged.

Even when badly housed and fed, Egyptians survive, and have done so for longer than just about anybody else. For vast stretches, they've also achieved greatness. Though the evidence may be grimy, corroded, blackened or crumbling, it's more than stupendous enough to awe
SHARE Wednesday, October 7, 2020 Serb Hillbillies, Sandra Afrika and Alexander the Great
Few lives change nearly every other. Plus, overwhelming power awes, mesmerizes and seduces, as long as you're not threatened, that is. Alexander will forever fascinate, as will Quin Shih Huang, Genghis Khan, Charlemagne or Napoleon, etc. AAA males are so rare, how can us tick-like wusses, fearful of our own shadows even, not buckle our knees?

All over the globe, villages like Vladimirovo have been compromised and degraded, if not wiped out completely, but this trend must be reversed if humanity is to have a future. Though it's hard to believe it during this grim and uncertain moment, that's exactly what will happen. Soon.
SHARE Friday, September 18, 2020 Architecture of Cruelty
The 20th century gave us world wars, atomic bombs, gulags, political correctness, napalm, canned music, Barbara Streisand, laugh tracks, American cheese, Israel and the absolutely shittiest, most inhumane architecture ever, and for this, we can thank Walter Gropius, above all.
SHARE Friday, September 4, 2020 Belgraders
The bright bar had people of all ages, plus a lounging dog. The NO SMOKING sign was clearly meant as a joke, for there were ashtrays all over. In the bathroom, there were six poems, pinned to a corkboard. A nine-year-old boy wore a "GOOD VIBES" T-shirt. Here and now, at least, life's normal, and that's more than good enough.

When you're steeped in your own heritage, just about every act has meaning, and for this reason alone, Serbs, Koreans and Vietnamese, etc., will outlast those whose most sacred heroes, symbols and customs have becoming meaningless, if not despised.

Bombing Serbia, America gave Russia and China a wakeup call, and forced them towards a new understanding. Everything changed after 1999. Again, this tiny nation played an outsized role in remaking our world. Balkanizing, Americans can look here for warnings and inspiration. Five hundred years from now, a Serbian nation will still exist.

So Communists are reactionary. Interesting. Their striving for a utopia is a bloody forced march towards a supposed Golden Age. Seen in this light, Pol Pot and Mao sending city folks to primitive farms or even uncleared land makes more sense.
