…ever find someone more attention seeking and less relevant to host their New Year’s Eve show…that nobody watches.
I do get derided for constantly preaching non-aggression as a solution. However, the results of our interventionism continue to be damning. From Ron Paul…
In Salman Abedi we have the convergence of both these disastrous US/UK and allied interventions, however: it turns out that not only did Abedi make trips to Libya to radicalize and train for terror, but he also travelled to Syria to become one of the “Syria rebels” fighting on the same side as the US and UK to overthrow the Assad government. Was he perhaps even trained in a CIA program? We don’t know, but it certainly is possible.
While the mainstream media and opportunistic politicians will argue that the only solution is more western intervention in the Middle East, the plain truth is that at least partial responsibility for this attack lies at the feet of those who pushed and pursued western intervention in Libya and Syria.
After well more than a century of employing aggression and intervention, we are a nation of dupes reduced to hollow condolences and threatening eye for an eye retaliation.
As a for instance, our bombs in Syria render us roughly a 2 to 1 ratio of innocent victims to alleged bad guys. (link)
It’s not really all well and good for you to “stand” with the people of Manchester or, the next terror attack on your social media. It does nothing. You stand for nothing if you don’t stand for the non-aggression principle. If you can’t acknowledge cause and effect, you are a useful idiot.
If you are a true believer in the farce that is government, by principle you should, as an individual, demand that your beloved institution adopt the non-aggression principle.
But, you likely won’t and it surely won’t.
A fun article in the Irish Times about Jim Henson, the man who fixes almost all of the analogue synthesizers in Ireland.
Here is the money shot…
The most common cause of an inactive synth? At his workstation in his cramped shed, Henson points to the synth he’s currently repairing. The keys don’t work and it’s down to a sticky brown substance.
“That is definitely Guinness. The odd time it is tea, sometimes it is black coffee but usually it’s Guinness that is cause.”
A freight train lumbers through the low land
Breaks the silence otherwise
A figure moving through the shadows
Makes his way up to the rise
I have known that man from childhood
A truly dark and tattered soul
He’s lost all a man can live for
Now he walks the night alone
Leaves and feathers on the ground
Grab your partner, swing around
Everyone will have their say
Every night will have its way
