And then we blinked & all was lost

It’s not Magic – It’s Basic:

We label ourselves the Information Generation, but the only things we were born knowing is how to eat and poop… All our knowledge was picked up from others, so if they are wrong then we are also wrong… Nonetheless, even as we follow their hand-me-down teaching, we still think we know more than they do, so we call ourselves special, and regard others, as fools and infidels, when we may really be the idiots.

Divorced from justice but not separated from the people

I am Forever Grateful, & Offer Thanks to you the People:

It may be flattering for persons to praise my last Articles as Master Pieces, but the truth is, the things I am saying now are what I have been saying all along… It’s merely a matter of speaking Truth to Power, in order to provide Truth for the Youth... It’s also okay for those who differ with me and call me a Hypocrite, because I promote the full employment of V-Islanders, even as I support the Rights of employed Non-Belongers.

The Promises & Projections of Politics:

Thanks for your comments about the Broadcasts and Articles... It is good to know that you read and listen, even if you disagree... The subjects are always open for debate, and it’s always good to spread the Word and hear the opinions of others... For Centuries, those in Power replaced Truth with Lies and we suffered for it... Perhaps Today will be a brand-new beginning, and a time to finally release our Chains.

Emancipation celebrations & fake representation

Still awaiting the Promise of Freedom:

We have a conditional allergy to Truth, so it took me endless months of explaining that CoI is an unfinished Fiasco, and, it was only because we were broke, and the UK was broke, that we were having Fake Elections… Now that you finally heard these admissions from the Governor and Government, there should be no doubt that we exist under Fake Representation, and they are now squandering real Money and Time.

In a Quest to Return to the Badness of the Good Old Days:

Seems like the whole world is falling apart – Not just our Premier chasing bones in the brook but a constant beat of conflict and confusion… Russia vs Ukraine, UK vs EU, America vs America and Everywhere against Anywhere… Even Hell and Heaven claim Domestic Violence as Rain pours and Sun shines… They took us out of Africa and since we are not going back, Africa’s Sahara is coming to us – dust by dust and grain by grain.

Opinion or Facts?

After 400 years, we still live in denial of our own denials and, because we refuse to think for ourselves, we are back to putting our trust in Colonial Masters… We reject Truths that challenge our intellectual laziness and would rather pretend to be so special that life owes us more than we owe ourselves… In this way, we ignore opportunities, misplace priorities and are misguided by emotions rather than led by reasoning.
