Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

The Southern Avenger on US DEBT and Generational Treason

Jack Hunter at Taki's Mag ~ writing as the "Southern Avenger" ~ calls a spade a spade in this insightful editorial piece posted to YouTube.

"War has all the characteristics of socialism most conservatives hate: Centralized power, state planning, false rationalism, restricted liberties, foolish optimism about intended results, and blindness to unintended secondary results." -- Joseph Sobran
I would add to Sobran's laundry list the characteristic of a severe restriction of that fluid which makes good societies run well, the milk of human kindness. Compassion is in short supply under war conditions.
I am so tired of the old political game of good Republican/Bad Democrat - Good Democrat/Bad Republican. Whenever authorities play good cop/bad cop the people usually wind up getting screwed. The most unholy alliance of the past 50 years has been the marriage of totalitarian communist ideologue society (China) with international mega-corporations. Caveat emptor.
