Car More? — clip one


The mean surface temperatures of much of the world’s oceans has reached historically unprecedented levels. This in turn is increasingly atmospheric temperatures — something we’re noticing right here in Korea. One would think there would be collective action to slow down these trends. And to some extent we do. But not as much as we flatter ourselves.

We’re greener than ever. We think.

The pandemic temporarily reduced levels of industrial pollution, but it also elevated car usage (as people avoided mass transit). Industry is back. Yet car usage remains high.

The Wargasm

#peace #antiwar #moviepoem #poetryfilm #israelhamasconflict #ukrainewar #gaza 

Where is all this conflict leading the planet?


Clip from « World War 3 seems to be coming along nicely: The Wargasm » 


Why do we 

*desire* war?


Don’t resist,

don’t contain,

don’t hold back,

don’t think hard…


The steel casings fall,

and leaders declare

one or another firm resolution.

None of that is key;

what really matters

is the explosive emotion —

the craving for release…

the machinery 

of modern pleasure.


Bombing by night 

doth leaders excite.

But bombing by day

is still A-OK.

(October 8/23 version)

The Business Army


Gerald MacGuire, the apparent driving force behind the business plot — an attempt to destroy democracy in the United States  — was simply a lowly bond salesman . He was used to doing others’ bidding.

He, in turn, was employed by seasoned capitalist Grayson M. P. Murphy. Murphy in turn was heavily involved with the American Legion — a veterans’ group involved in right wing activities. (It’s important to note here that veterans groups in Germany and Italy were pivotal in the rise of reaction and fascism.)

Grayson met with Murphy. For Murphy had a plan. But he needed to be sure that his agent was controllable and ruthless.

Glenn Greenwald is asserting that Canada has « one of the works most repressive online censorship schemes ». A lot of people, especially on the right, agree with him. Is the assertion true?
