Starting anew, once again.
I've been kicked off of Newsvine and Huffpo. Freedom of speech has its consequences and I accept that. Though often many of my comments are misinterpreted because of my warped sense of humor.
I was on the "vine as Hugh b, buonocane, hughmac, et al. I was on Huffpo as Mactheknight.
My focus is on leadership, democracy, the evils of propaganda with its accomplice ignorance.
Since the dawn of the idiocracy, the election of Georgie the Usurper, the destruction of this republic and its representative democratic form of government has snowballed. The Reagan economic policy of trickle down is nothing more than legalized skimming. The lifeblood of all economies is money. When that money is hoarded by a very small percentage then the negative effects are amplified. Hoarding money is no different then other types of hoarding, be it cats, comic books, or congressmen.
Given that the logistics of wealth piggy back off the transportation of the staples that sustain the poorest in this world, then as more money is skimmed off, the more those staples cost, and the more damage it has on the less fortunate.
I was raised in Maine. I was the youngest of 5 for ten years before a half-sister came along. My career was as a maritime/marine engineer, a shadow career and my true nature is that of a teacher. And as that is my nature I know that I have so much more to learn each day about life, about myself, and about truth.
8:32 AM PT: I don't know if I was "banned" from Huffpost, I do know I didn't like the changes. I lost track of what was going on, on that site.
On Newsvine I had many supporters but I also fell prey to trolls that evoked responses from me that would have better been left unwritten.
I don't discourage nor have I often flagged others for what they say to me personally. I'm a big boy and can take the heat.
And as I wrote in one of my responses to my diary. Encouraging people to "adapt" forces homogenization and that causes all of us to lose the diversity that gives life texture.
