    gathering thoughts, and data, which is the one thing I want to encourage when I write. Get people looking at, and thinking about, more than one dot at a time.

    Kinetic vs Potential is very precise and compact. I really like that. I picked up "Kinetic Energy" from Joieau and Ive been using "killer energies" against that. Because Kinetic lets out all the "alternate" fuels which are materials with... potential. Biofuels for example. I like "killer energies" because it includes nuclear.

    The reason I always come back to Media as the linchpin to the omni-failures of our civil society is that (and this astonishes me all these years later as much as it did all those years ago) we continually refuse to grapple with that reality.

    Absolutely everything everything everything which is a problem to us is spun up, shot down, or ignored by the 1%'s agitation/propaganda machine. The most sophisticated and ubiquitous in all history.

    I don't know if people think it's too big, or we've got the fish-doesn't-notice-water thing going on or what. But Media is the thing which holds all the corruption together. We're effectively excluded from using it for our communities. And we don't focus to remedy that.

    You got it right, imo: The Cognitive Dissonance, from all the elites, is because they're lying. They're lying to misdirect us from what they know are criminal and/or ugly motives and actions. That's why nothing adds up from them.

    Okay, that's how power goes in this world. There's always a high degree of con going on. But our Leadership Class hardly bothers to pretend our interests are at heart any more. And when a society is at that point, that society is on path to crumbling.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
