I Loved the Pomp & Circumstance of the Celebration for the Fourth on the Washington Mall. I loved the Vison of President Lincoln Staring Down the Reflecting Pool at the Humongous Crowd towards the Washington Monument.
I loved the Tanks, the Bradley Fighting Vehicles, The Tribute to America’s Troops & History, the Flyovers and the Speech of President Donald J Trump.
IT ALL GAVE SOME HOPE IN AN OTHERWISE DIRE WORLD:
It Would Be Nice If I Said I Can’t Believe It . . . But That Would Be A Lie.
A CURSE ON MOST OF OUR ACADEMIA:
I Believe It! . . . I Believe that People are so Stupid that they Believe Whatever Nonsense comes out of the Voice of Someone who can Act, Sing, Dance, has a Title or Simply Speaks on the Media.
I Believe It! . . . I Believe that People are so Ignorant, that Learning & Questioning in itself has become a Task Beyond the Reach of Most.
I Believe It! . . . I Believe that People want to Believe whatever BS it is, that they Want to Believe, and look for Approbation Everywhere & Anywhere for their Beliefs.
I Believe It! . . . I Believe that Hollywood, Television and the Overall Entertainment Industry in General, has Created far more than just a Phony Alternate Universe, where People not only chose to Believe in the Unreal, but Rather, a Universe whose Values are Upside-Down & Inside-Out.
What Can One Say . . . about a Society where almost Half the People would Prefer to Believe in Lies, Rather Than Believe in the Truth?
What Can One Say . . . about a Society which Believes that It’s Good to Destroy the Remnants of History? That Masked Goons are Acceptable? That Voters DON’T have to Prove their Citizenship? And People who Sneak into your Country ILLEGALLY ARE NOT ILLEGAL, but are just Undocumented?
What Can One Say . . . about A Society that wants to Hide or Jettison Its Past, and Not Celebrate Its Present & Future, Nor take Glory in its Accomplishments?
I Wish It Wasn’t True . . . But It Is – That The Entire Planet is on a Collision Course with History, where we Seem to be Doomed to Repeat the Mistakes of the Past, Whether we Like it or Not, Whether we Want to or Not – Heading Inextricably Towards a New Yesterday, Because Far Too Many People have either Forgotten or have Never Learned the Past.
The Writing Is On The Wall . . . for all to see, where Hatred has become the Watchword & Lies have Become the Battle-Cry of the LEFT, where Independence in the Mind of the LEFT Only Belongs to the State . . . and no one Questions who it will be who Controls the State, Or Where Freedom is Only What The Government Defines to be Freedom.
WE ARE ON THE CUSP . . . Where Socialism (Communism) & Freedom will Meet in the Battle of Armageddon, where Good . . . Will do Battle Against Evil, where Truth will Meet Mendacity Head-On, at a Horrific Cost – Where Only One-Side Will Walk Away in Victory.
This Isn’t New . . . Only the Players are New. Where for Thousands of Years, the Script has been Written and Re-Written to Suit the Changing Times.
I Depressed Anne & Several Of My Family & Friends The Other Day.
How Many People Watch America’s Favorite Cable Morning News Show – Fox & Friends I Asked?
Some said 10-Million. Some Suggested 15-Million. So they were all Shocked when I Told them that about ONLY 1.5-Million People Watch the Most Popular Morning Cable News Show, which Barely Rates as a Percentage Point of an American Population Exceeding some 330-Million.
Not To Labor The Point . . . But the Mainstream Media on ABC, CBC & NBC Doesn’t do that Much Better, given the Number of People who Live in the United States of America.
The Print Media, which is in Serious Decline, is Barely Hanging-In-There . . . So Where & How do the People of the United States of America get their News & Information?
But It’s Not Just The United States Of America . . . It’s Global.
The Tyrants Of The World Feed Their People All The Crap They Can Create, While Social Media in Most of the Western Hemisphere & Parts of Eastern Europe & Australia Pick Winners & Losers Amongst the Politicians & Regimes, who will make Google, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon and Others Even More Powerful than they Already Are.
The Day Of Reckoning Will Soon Be Upon All Of Us . . . and as I have Asked in the Past – On Which Side Of History Do You Want To Be Once The Dust Settles?
The Future Is What We Will Make Of It . . . Don’t Be Silent.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
