As my older brother lay dying of terminal cancer/COPD; he told his daughters: “I will not go gentle into that good night – I will fight,” and proceeded to live that statement day after day when doctors predicted he would be dead. If there can only be one end; then it matters all the more how you face it – so I’m returning to the battlefield of human worth with a renewed commitment. And . . . Oh, yes; I’ve been pulling my punches with the previous books – it’s time to go toe-to-toe with our evil times. This book is an in-your-face challenge to those people who refuse to show their face: And if they won’t come into the light – I’ll bring the light to them.
If someone were to ask you to do something; if there were even the smallest chance of it injuring your child – you would say; “No, I won’t gamble with the life of my child.” But when technologies inherently risk all life on earth – you are willing to take that small chance; for a small benefit.
If words like “Extinction,” and “Apocalypse” are written too big for anything but videogames and movies: you need to step back a bit.
We now have the power to do incalculable things — and we have authorities who are eager to use that power.
Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
Being corrupt doesn’t mean that you’ve done something – frequently corruption is about not doing anything at all.
You don’t investigate complaints, you don’t see issues or conflicts of interest, you don’t respond to the needs or respect the rights of the people.
In our post-representative government – “a vision for the future based on a set of principles that reflect the values of the community as expressed by the County Legislature” – there is no room left for meaningful public participation or decision making.
It’s a corruption that refuses to recognize our individual human worth and reduces us to a commodity – like slavery: it’s a corruption of the soul.
