Welcome to the world of the free! 😎 ...$$$ ... the 1% that is 🐘

Your leader Putin - Netanyahu - Bolsonaro - Xi Ping - Trump - BoJo ...

How dare you use the words of a leader of the oppressed!

Yep ... like Moses leading the Isrealites for a 40 year wait in the desert so G*d can bestow on them manna from heaven (trickle down), the 10 Commandments and the ideal of a Promised Land.

History repeating itself as the Israelites worshiped a false god (Trump) in a shining Golden Calf (wealth of the 0.1% or pure Capitalism) ... beyond reach of you and me, the well educated and labourers working 2 or 3 jobs to reach a decent wage.

Today's Israel and the shining City on the Hill are symbols of racism, xenophobia, corruption as seldom seen in history of mankind. The Axis of Evil of Chaos and Wars. Sets aside Human Rights (torture, indefinite detention, assassinations), multilateralism, Four Freedoms and real opportunity to develop tone's God given talent through education.

It's as simple as making the right choices in a more complex world of falsehoods, forgeries and Internet theft of your individual Freedom.

Welcome to 1984, Planet Earth's worst nightmare to survive in the 21st Century.

Neo-colonialism through neocon policymakers in the "New World" ...

"Freedom" my a$$ ... exploitation of the weak and citizens fallen by the wayside ... universal healthcare is a Human Right ... thank God we are blessed in a united Europe ... still building a future without wars!

Worthwhile to remind today's suffering of minorities is quite similar to circumstances of America in the Sixties. Inequality is a persistent evil. Racism has evolved to Xenophobia and Islamophobia. The Jewish people stood side by side with the American negroes in the Civil Rights movement. In the 21st Century, the State of Israel has crossed the rubicon and propagates on the side of rightwing Islamophobia, an evil doctrine the Jewish religion and culture unworthy.

The voices of wisdom and peace have been silenced, hopefully not forever!

My new diary to put the Brexit in perspective from old shackles to new shackles of capitalism, not offering "freedom at last" from a bureaucratic EU.

I never mentioned or implied Hitler.
Says more about me than you.

What fun it is to be back with the stock retorts and jibes from usenet discussion groups!

Hitler just about disappeared after 9-11 in the US, although he's made a comeback since 2016.

you are the media you consume.
