''The Government that Honors MLK with a National Holiday Killed Him. A Review of The Plot to Kill King by William Pepper.'' by Edward Curtin:

''Very few Americans are aware of the truth behind the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Few books have been written about it, unlike other significant assassinations, especially JFK’s. For almost fifty years there has been a media blackout supported by government deception to hide the truth.

''And few people, in a massive act of self-deception, have chosen to question the absurd official explanation, choosing, rather, to embrace a mythic fabrication intended to sugarcoat the bitter fruit that has resulted from the murder of the one man capable of leading a mass movement for revolutionary change in the United States. Today we are eating the fruit of our denial.

''In order to comprehend the significance of this extraordinary book, it is first necessary to dispel a widely accepted falsehood about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. William Pepper does that on the first page.

''To understand his death, it is essential to realize that although he is popularly depicted and perceived as a civil rights leader, he was much more than that. A non-violent revolutionary, he personified the most powerful force for the long-overdue social, political, and economic reconstruction of the nation.

''In other words, Martin Luther King was a transmitter of a non-violent spiritual and political energy so plenipotent that his very existence was a threat to an established order based on violence, racism, and economic exploitation. He was a very dangerous man.''


This excellent article is an extraordinary read & so I thoroughly recommend it to all who still read here.

Here's a very important reason why rampant globalization is for idiots: http://occupywallst.org/forum/pan-antibiotic-bacteria-arriving-in-us-with-global/

I DON'T want the bad germs going worldwide knowing how many of my next-of-kins and siblings had died (and also nearly died) of contagious diseases(likely from stupid wars' conditions and/or their evil intentions). World wars became possible through globalization. As a part of the Faustian pact, globalization exacted a terrible toll.

Although I, being the joy of yet another and the last family reunion and very youngest one of all, had never experienced the scourges myself(yes, I lived in squalid conditions with cholera closeby but my Mom had already learnt quite a bit about hygienic practices due to the terrible history of contagious disease deaths in our family and next-of-kins; the government also decided to help clamp down hard on unsanitary conditions and practices so I probably lucked out), I did know that my Mom grieved for her lost children(and my would-have-been siblings).

Mom had sometimes talked to me of the 90%+ death rate of my Dad's elder siblings. When my paternal grandparents were so overwhelmed by war and disease, they had to send my Dad, the youngest child, far away as the baby to be wet-nursed(my steelily loving grandma's decision[she more than once made the ones dearest to her leave her behind so they might live; she was absolutely a heroine well matched to blunt the sharp blows of those awful times of wars, blockades, diseases, revolutions, and man-made hoarding famines] saved the eventual primogeniture lineage for our clan's remnant of grace[the last shall be first; for God took away as His own, all other blessed children of the firstborn]) so that they could attend to (and then bury almost all of) their children there. It was traumatic.

''MLK Day 2017 - Mobilizing Against Racism, Capitalism and Militarism .. in a Neo-Fascist Era''

From which, I briefly excerpt: ''In 1967, King named racism, capitalism and militarism as the"three evils of society." In this moment, we have a similar responsibility to name and connect how larger structures are behind the impacts people feel & will increasingly feel, in their daily lives. Just pursuing incremental reforms rather than structural transformations is no longer going to be a feasible strategy nor has it ever been enough.''

Yes, cancer of the light spectrum with the richer ones dissipating most of the revenue of the government leading to the ultraviolet catastrophe - with even more rich ones clamoring for more, stagnant standard of living for generations, and debt interest charges crowding out everything else(to create duct-tape navy, paper-aircraft airforce, lampshade-helmet army, hell-death panels, petfood re-dire-ments, burnt-egg-nightly hoods, and youdupe e-duc-ation that'll offer pre-cumming-of-age "advanced-massterpation-technik class" for Teutonic-style spearing, shielding, and eventually liberating the passion of iXtaccihuatl.)

The cons of both parties will never see the necessary course. Forgive all debts, tax away most of the rest of their hoard and start over with a clean slate. They'll have it all back in a few years and we can do it again.

But the cancer that's killing us by it's amoral stupidity and greed thinks if that happens our moral uprightness will be at risk!

We'll see if Trump'll advance your cause or simply pull the wool over our eyes just as the other ones, or even worse(probably much worse - you likely know little about inheritance but I do because I'd been stripped bare before of my ancestors' global wealth - Trump proposed robbing the U.S. Treasury through inheritance tax cuts, did you catch that at all? Sieg Heil!). Alexis de Tocqueville who had foretold in the 19th century the rise of the U.S. and Russia to greatness in the next century based his prediction of the U.S. upon our inheritance laws NOT following the British primogeniture inheritance laws. Sure enough, the U.S. replaced Great Britain as a global superpower in the 20th century. Long-term differential of growth rates imposed by a people's mores have great consequences. Haitian aristocracy ran their side of the island of Hispaniola into the ground from great wealth by killing the environment and catering to the whims of the rich.

Things've worked out well for me by following these, "An enemy who advances your cause is your friend in disguise." "Give everyone the benefit of the doubt so trust And VERIFY!"

Impose discipline as Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 said,

 There is a time for everything,
 and a season for every activity under heaven:

 a time to be born and a time to die, 
 a time to plant and a time to uproot, 
 a time to kill and a time to heal, 
 a time to tear down and a time to build, 
 a time to weep and a time to laugh, 
 a time to mourn and a time to dance, 
 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, 
 a time to embrace and a time to refrain, 
 a time to search and a time to give up, 
 a time to keep and a time to throw away, 
 a time to tear and a time to mend, 
 a time to be silent and a time to speak, 
 a time to love and a time to hate, 
 a time for war and a time for peace.

Collapse. We scraped the edge of the Abyss in October of 2008. It'll not be the first time. The experience in the EU showed that negative interests rates and bail-in's can all be used. History showed many previous collapses. People suffered greatly but societies still went on. Confiscations worked every single time.

Good! The Bible cannot be read and interpreted literally. In modern Computerese, "It yields many compilation errors." For it to be held in worthy honors, it must be read metaphorically(much like the gamma "variation-of-parameters" factor bridging relativistic physics with Newtonian classical physics) or limited to its domain of application in the similar way as Newtonian physics may still be used knowing fully well that it's only a good-enough approximation.

In the beginning, there was God. Then there was No God when God was sought for. Then there IS God because we've Found God within ourselves through Faith("If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you." - Luke 17:6) and so we can, of course, "walk with God," for God has been carrying us all along. God Is a figment of our imagination but is just as real as our imaginings made real. The God/No God dichotomy yields NO contradiction. Nature has never had any contradictions and never will, very unlike our "zero" - the "Something" standing for Nothing.

Analogous to the "phlogiston" theory of Chemistry or ancient Greek myths, the Bible should be interpreted as the culmination of millennia of human wisdom and morality sprung from the deep recesses of human psyches. Do phlogistons exist? Not now. Are they useful? Not quite nowadays but they were at one time. Are they less true now? Sort of but not necessarily if the history of science is being discussed.

People sympathize with others by giving them what is "from the bottom of their hearts." I looked in hearts and there was NOTHING at the bottom of the hearts! Hearts are pumps with voids in them. Did these (transcended over their falsehood by Love) lies told by these people help? Yes, definitely!!!

Parasites. Yes that is exactly what the wealthy few are and those who would join them. They are like a deadly tapeworm at this point in time. Not happy to stay mainly dormant while sucking nourishment out of the body they have infested. NO. They have gone malignant, toxic to the body they infest. Now they want it all. Even though in taking it all they kill the body they infest and so die themselves.

Sex puts a high premium on social skills and social cognition which require having brains that can cope with the social complexities. Human cultures grow upon such brains with deferred sexual maturity to allow for long-term learning and returning memories, "Lära in, min kärleks."
