This book has grown; not as a sequel; but from the same roots. It embodies my decision to be more confrontational – and my beliefs of human worth, and worth of creativity and independent thought.
In some ways; this book gives graphical life to the documentary evidence set down in “Tompkins County and Tammany Hall”; but it also is more open to solution and love than a recounting of the past, even an impassioned one, can be.

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.

“Social Policy 2022: It’s a ‘greater good’ – that fails every test of goodness.” There is no love. There is no compassion. There is no human worth. That is why they hide their actions and their victims – and are only willing to talk about their good “intentions.” • And if the “road to Hell is paved with good intentions” – maybe we should take the time to look; and see how far along we are. • Where is the “greater good” in a government that assumes the power to discriminate against whoever they want; whenever they want; for as long as they want; in secrecy? • Is there a single area of society where the ‘greater good’ puppet show has not become script for propagandizing oppression? • We have come down the road so far – that evidence of the most blatant bias is met with a dismissive unconcern. Evil is a tireless driver; and our leaders have taken a back seat — eagerly anticipating the final destination.
