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.
To those who say; “How dare you claim that we are doing evil” – I reply: “How dare you do what you are doing; and claim otherwise.”

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.

Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
“Social Policy 2022: They talk the talk; and walk in the opposite direction.” • If there is any area of impenetrability in our “transparent” government; it’s the area of government authored social policy and policy making. This “black box” of machinations hides every real-world action and consequence — even the degree of their success is no more than a “hand out” – with no contextual or statistical means of public oversight. • Race, gender and ethnicity have risen on a tide of political “patty-cake” to the level of nobility – a right of birth – a treason to contradict or question. • Today’s “liberal” Progressives are everything that Liberals of the 60’s claimed to hate and despise – turning the absolute rights of the People; to “absolutely not.” Killing for peace. Purging for the Peaceable Kingdom. • Like Global Warming and Agricultural Pollution; the true state of our country’s social fabric is covered up through direct government intervention and “black box” activities. • Washington fiddles while the ship of state sinks. We’re told to keep calm and ride out the storm and everything will turn out for the best – for everyone. • It’s all part of the plan; that’s kept in the “black box.”
