#9 For the Good Times Kris Kristopherson

Don’t look so sad

I know its over

but life goes on

And this old world will keep on turning

There’s no need to watch the bridges

that were burning

Lay your head

Against my pillow

Hold your warm and tender body close to mine

Hear the whisper of the raindrops

Falling soft against the window

And make believe you love me

One more time

For the good times

I’ll get along

You’ll find another

And I’ll be here

If you should find you ever need me

Don’t say a word about tomorrow or forever

There’ll be time enough for sadness

when you leave me

Lay your head…

Kristofferson has got it here, in the best of the songs in the genre with “Touch me in the Morning,” “Angel of the Morning” and such. I can still hear my father, with his deep voice and Fifties Sinatra style, singing this song by the yellow piano. The mortality of love is otherwise a sorrow beyond speech, but it is because forever means so much, and is the goal of love in marriage, that this can be such a sorrow. Kristofferson wrote about four songs in this period that could be ranked in our top fifty, but this one is far superior even to “Me and Bobby McGee” and Sunday Mornin Comin Down.”

#5: Mary Magdalene

#5 I Don’t Know How To Love Him, from Jesus Christ Superstar. Andrew Loyd Weber (MCA Records, 1973).

Try not to get worried

Try not to turn on to

Problems that upset you

Don’t you know everything’s alright, everything’s fine

Let the world turn without you tonight

Close your eyes, close your eyes,

And forget all about us tonight.

 

I don’t know how to love him

What to do, how to move him.

I’ve been changed, yes really changed

In these past few days, when I see myself, I seem like someone else.

I don’t know how to take this

I don’t see why he moves me

He’s a man,

He’s just a man,

And I’v had so many men before,

In very many ways,

He’s just one more.

Should I bring him down?

Should I scream and shout?

Should I speak of love

Let my feelings out?

I never thought I’d come to this

What’s it all about?

Don’t you think its rather funny

I should be in this position?

I’m the one who’s always been

So calm so cool, no lover’s fool,

Running every show

He scares me so.

I never thought I’d come to this

What’s it all about?

Yet if he said he loved me,

I’d be lost, I’d be frightened.

I couldn’t cope, just couldn’t cope.

I’d turn my head, I’d walk away,

I wouldn’t want to know

He scares me so.

I want him so

I love him so.

In the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar, Mary Magdalene is with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, when the troubles are bringing him down, where in the scripture he prayed that if it be the will of the father, let the burden be taken from him. What is so beautiful about this song is the confusion of Mary Magdalene in her love for Jesus as a woman loves a man and her love of him as the disciples love the messiah. This experience is common to Christian women, who often understand the song well in this way, which men by circumstance do not have access to. This is because the love of a woman for a man is the same, for women, as the love that begins the ascent of the soul to the divine. Her experience of being changed in the first few days after she met him is like the experience of true love for the ladies it graces. Love, being a direct touch of something divine, and this light is not distinguished from the beloved in whom it appears. She has to convince herself that he is a man, and “just a man, doubly ironic because of the Christian attempt to understand the divinity and humanity of Jesus, or the Messiah. Recalling the tradition according to which Mary Magdalene was a courtesan or prostitute before she met Jesus, she says, she has had so many men before, “In very many ways, He’s just one more.” Contemporary questioning of this tradition, as not quite scriptural, seems unpersuasive. Although it cannot be demonstrated from scripture, it makes perfect sense that the gospel writers, being her friend and polite, might leave the detail out. The tradition is very important, because it demonstrates the openness of the divine to our turning and repentance, from whatever condition, a humility that allows us to receive the divine. This humility is directly contrasted with the self-sufficient confidence of the people who master circumstances and receive the flattery of the world. She recalls her former life as a courtesan, when no man could make her dependence or vulnerability apparent, “no lover’s fool,” as one who loves may be. In relation to the divine, the one who has always been beloved and never lover becomes a lover, able to experience for the first time what her beauty has perhaps caused in others. She finds him terrifying, and reflects that if he loved her, she would walk away, and wouldn’t want to know. So it is with those who come near in love to Him.

#4: Paul (There is Love)

#4 The Wedding Song

Of this song, the author, Noel Paul Stookey, writes: “Into every songwriter’s life comes a song, the source of which cannot be explained by personal experience…” There is something especially divine about this song and its source, all the more apparent in the unpretentious particulars of the language of this poet. For this reason–it’s divine inspiration– this song is the one written in our age that is most often played during the ceremony of weddings, as the central song of the ceremony. The words are as follows:

He is now to be among you

At the calling of your hearts

Rest assured this troubadour is acting on his part

The union of your spirits here has caused him to remain

For whenever two or more of you are gathered in his name

There is Love.

There is Love.

He, the Christ, is now to be among you, all the guests, at what is in fact the calling of our hearts by the spectacle of marriage. We are assured that the man, the groom, is acting on the part of Jesus, in what is a representation of the union of Christ and Church. It is the union of the two being married that has caused him, like a spirit, to remain upon the gathering. For, as is written, whenever two or more are gathered in his name, there is Love, or He is among them or in their midst (Matthew 18:20; Luke 17:20).

(Well) A man shall leave his mother

And a woman leave her home

And they shall travel on to where

The two shall be as one.

As it was in the beginning

Is now and till the end

Woman draws her life from man

And gives it back again.

And there is Love.

There is Love as Jesus cites Genesis

After describing the creation of woman from the rib of man, the scripture here, reads: Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.” (1:26-27; 2:24; 5:2; c. p. 9:6). One flesh here may mean not only that they are joined in body, but especially that they are joined in soul, in the way the man cleaves to his wife after leaving his parents. This passage is, lately, often read as saying something very different from Genesis (1:26; 5:2; 9:6), that God created man in his own image, male and female. Yet the deepest truths of love may be accessible through a persistent and faithful attempt to read both together. It is because man is made male and female in the image of God that man cleaves to woman. When Jesus teaches against divorce, he asks:

Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female (Genesis 1:26-27), and said ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. What therefore God has joined together let no man put asunder (Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6).

The same is taught by Paul when, after teaching that husbands should love their wives as their own bodies, citing this line of Genesis, Paul writes: This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the Church” (Ephesians 5:31-32; 5:26-27). “As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be” is the form from the mass, and the prayer, recalling the name of God in John’s Apocalypse, (the one who is, was and will be). The way these things are, and were and will be until the end is that “woman draws her life from man and gives it back again” This is not an ancient but a contemporary interpretation of the spiritual mystery of love for woman. The same could be said of the inspiration of love for a man, as this awakens the soul to life. Jeremiah writes of a new thing on earth, (“man is born from woman.”). So the lovers draw life from one another and give life, their temporary bliss the conception of the new life that is born from love.

Well then what’s to be the reason for becoming man and wife?

Is it love that leads you here or Love that brings you life?

For if loving is the answer

Then who is the giving for?

Do you believe in something that you’ve never seen before?

There is Love.

The refrain “There is love” is intended as a demonstration of the unseen, or even of the unseen God. Do you believe in something that you’ve never seen before: the love and the marriage is the image of the unseen God, and as love is invisible yet more real than the visible things, it is in love between man and woman that the unseen is closest to the visible, or takes on visible form, as is somewhere in Plato’s Symposium, where it is said that in only love and justice are the forms willing to take on visible manifestations. At any rate, one would think this manifestation or proof of the existence of God would at least have a place among the traditional five ways of proving the existence of God, as found in Aquinas and Anselm and elsewhere. One wonders if the aversion of Christian tradition to erotic love were not all this time ill conceived, as was left to be uncovered even till the time of Shakespeare. It is at the wedding at Cana that Jesus does his first public miracle in the scripture (John 2:1-11). The wedding masque in The Tempest is the other great wedding presentation to be contributed in the last two centuries by the Christian poets. I do not quite understand the line: “is it love that brings you here or love that brings you life? Perhaps because it is, hopefully, obviously both. But is love the thing that brings a man and woman to the altar, or is Love not especially that thing that brings them spiritual life, throughout the rest of their days and into the beyond? Who is the giving for? It is for us or for the one who gives, as well as for the others.

At the end of the song, a part of the first verse is repeated, emphasizing the summation or capsule of the meaning presented in the last four lines:

The union of your spirits here has caused him to remain

For wherever two or more of you

Are gathered in his name

There is Love.

#3: The First Time Ever I saw Your Face

#3 The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. Written by Ewan MacCall; (Stormcase Music, BMI.) Sung famously by Roberta Flack, as the theme song from the movie Play Misty For Me, and on the album The best of Roberta Flack (Atlantic Records, 1981).

This is the slowest song of all, even slower than a slow Leonard Cohen tune. The cadence may be recalled by splitting the lines, as I have done below. One can almost feel the earth slowly moving around. It is innocent in the sense that it is not self consciously connecting the experience of love to the experience of the divine. It is set in three parts, chronicling the experience of the first time the lover saw, then kissed, then consummated the love:

The first time

Ever I saw your face,

I thought the sun

Rose in your eyes,

And the moon and the stars

Were the kiss you gave

To the dark

And the endless skies

My love

And the first time

Ever I kissed your mouth

I felt the earth

Move in my hand

Like the trembling heart

Of a captive bird

That was three

At my command.

My love

And the first time

Ever I lay with you

I felt your heart

So close to mine

And I knew our joy

Would fill the Earth,

And (would) last

Till the end of time

My love

The first time

Ever I saw

Your face.

As Aristotle comments, love begins in sight. On first sight, the lover thought the rising sun was seen reflected in the in the eyes of the one seen, so bright was the light. It is the light of the sunrise, and the east that this light is like, as Rome says of the sight of Juliet: What light through yonder window breaks ?/ It is the East, and Juliet is the sun ! In an image that reminds of the Creator, it seemed in addition that the moon and the stars were the kiss given by the beloved to the dark and endless skies. The word or light of the Creator is as a kiss to the heavens at the creation. In what Juliet calls “love’s sweet idolatry,” The lover does not distinguish between the beloved and the divine, but then, the lover has never had direct experience of the divine except through the beauty seen in the beloved. The course of love may involve the separating out of these, but at love’s conception they are experienced together.

And then the first time the lover kissed the mouth of the beloved, the great earth was felt as if to move in his hand, there at his command like the heart of a bird held in ones hands. The lines are breathtaking beyond words. It may be that the lover participates in the relation of the Creator to the earth or the world, as if holding “the whole world in His hands.” And so, the joy of the consummation, in the first time he lay with her, the feeling of their hearts together, coincided with the knowledge that their joy would fill the earth, and last till the end of time. Their joy, this very joy of romantic human love, is a participation in the divine that fills the earthy, and sustains mankind until the end.

When it is said that “God is Love,” the meaning is of course different from the emotion of human romantic love, yet here the essence, if not the very stuff of the human love is shown to be the divine love. So eros and agape are shown related, under a yet higher and nameless, eternal and omnipresent Love.

Alfarabi comments: “Man can reach happiness only when the Active Intellect first gives the first intelligibles, which constitute the primary knowledge.” This happiness is known or perceived by the theoretical faculty, “when it makes use of the first principles and the primary knowledge given to him by the Active Intellect.”[3] This experience of the highest or divine part of us is reflected in the natural image that is the soul of love. Something then is revealed regarding “love at first sight.” And so, the first time the lover sees the beloved is then the nearest they have ever been to a direct experience of the divine. For, as Diotima teaches Socrates, only regarding the form of the beautiful is the intelligible is permitted visible form.

    43. Sakur seems to have produced reporting for the BBC worthy of Fox “News.” The Americans already do not know the difference between tyranny and liberty. so Hearing tyrants praised, even from the highest offices, is becoming acceptable.

    44. Tyranny is on the rise, and the surprise is that the press is beginning to support the party line of the tyrants. These people must say something, and the accusations against Soreno, for things like normal travel expenses, could not be more flimsy, nor more Trump-like

    45. Justice Soreno was removed without the required impeachment process for opposition to the thousands of extrajudicial killings (or murders by police) committed in the service of the Trump-praised tyrant elected by Russian interference.

    85. We have a constitution with a bill of rights that secures the liberty of free discussion, but no one understands its principle, so that in most “dimensions” or most subjects, the bill has no force, and we are simply subject to ignorance. Law and psychiatry is a good example.

    86. The serfdom of the philosopher prevents speaking on many questions where lives are literally at stake, and people perish because we were not free to think and write. Subject to the illusions of the ignorance of others, there are things helpful that we just cannot risk discussing.

    87. The question of flying cars is very interesting in itself, but especially as an analogy for the complexities of law, security and liberty as we enter new dimensions. Tyranny, though, makes many questions moot. A free society would need to address some interesting questions.

    95. The wedding cake case is a good example of how difficult some First Amendment cases can become. Force the baker, as, regarding race, in Brown, or forbid the customer access, as in Plessy.

    96. It is quite obvious that there are ways in which an employer or business may not establish or impede religion, control speech and assembly, prevent petition and press, and also ways that they may, within their purpose. To rely on the marketplace to secure these rights is absurd.

    97. The value of the accuser: By assuming that Christianity is false, Nietzsche, Marx and Machiavelli each must invert the soul to account for how then it came to be, thereby oddly vindicating the Christ. These begin from and cause an anti-Christian faith, not knowledge.

    98. These are the rights, applied selectively to the states, and a guide for legislation and law suits where this is necessary. It is illegal to do business in our state recording conversations.

    99. It is simply not true that because the First Amendment limits “Congress,” any corporation may set up a tyranny. Besides, the Fourth and Fifth are worded differently: “The right of the people…No person shall…”

    100. The Accuser cannot be persuaded, as they simply proceed from every demonstration on to the next accusation. But these are very valuable to the accused who seeks virtue, like Nietzsche and Machiavelli, to purify Christianity, if one can stand it. Ja, God is not Fortuna or revenge.

    Garrison Keillor, and probably Senator Al Franken, were the targets of such attacks using psychological warfare weaponizing collected vulnerabilities. Care yet that your tech is spying on you in ways known and unknown for “marketing purposes? And we have a Fourth Amendment!

  1. There is no legal recourse for such attacks, even using other people’s susceptibility to illusion, if genuine flaws cannot be found. The accusation of insanity is the easiest, as people do not know what it means, but assume the common sense understanding. Obvious, but amazing.

  2. Any particular person, such as Eric Schneiderman, for example, who begins to gain traction getting us out of the place where we are stuck can then be targeted using their vulnerabilities, real or only arguable.

  3. Remember, our own FBI tried to get Martin Luther King to commit suicide, and we suspect they set women on him, then used his sins against him. Nice, and that in the freest, least tyrannical nation on earth? No one was ever held accountable. Do not marvel now at our troubles.

  4. Putin is the most private person on the internet, or, a very private person, in contrast, say, with Trump.

  5. Our vulnerabilities are of course being collected to be used against us as weaponized information in psychological warfare. Sometimes the obvious need be said.

  23. In my years as an FBI agent, I never encountered an innocent subject who actively worked to obstruct an investigation that would have proved their innocence.

  24. The “president” who can pardon himself can invite Putin and Twitter etc to AGAIN turn the next election by interfering with the voters through data collection, targeted interference and intimidation, as is in fact being done. Where is your “blue wave?”

  25. Trump’s “pardon himself” stuff demonstrates his guilt more clearly than anyting else he has said, and demonstrates his tyrannic intention. He cannot obstruct justice because he IS justice? And the Democrats STILL won’t impeach?

  26. The Supreme Court was invited 3 times to void the election due to Russian interference, and simply denied to hear the case. Ja, If all we said and suspected is true, no one will do a thing. America, you slaves, you will get the tyrant your self interested sniveling deserves.

  27. So, IF Trump is guilty of election fraud and bribery, returning favors to Putin, the Democrats STILL wont impeach, because oh, that would just “rile up the GOP base?” WHAT!?? I am so sickened by party politics…IF we indeed have a tyrant, face nuclear destruction…

  28. Ja, Sessions, Good people do not use petty issues to serve the imposition of a tyranny and destroy political liberty. But having cleaned up the Russian and U. S. mob, he is now going after the very root of the U. S. drug problem. Need I indicate sarcasm?

  29. At the opening of Plato’s Republic, Socrates jokes that he cannot persuade “Polemarchus” if he will not listen. Political questions are indeed resolved by power, which is why we must stand up with courage at some point of see liberty perish from the face of the earth.

  30. I tell the “Hillary card” guys and anyone else, to simply look at my pinned tweet, click on the picture, and believe that I never set my photo on the internet. I expect it is DEMONSTRATED that a crime was committed, and even that this IS a criminal organization. But U won’t look!

  31. So, ya, the American people do not understand tyranny, nor what was at stake in the 2016 election, or Trump would have been stuck at about 9%, and not made it out of the primaries even with the help of Putin and Bright Bart. Someone wanted US to be governed by a political moron.

  32. On that last tweet, one Quran guy came up, and it said “He is watching you,” although nothing in the tweet would trigger that. Hmmm. Does someone need to be reminded that we are a free people? Has someone not read the Bill of Rights? Or Sessions is trying to educate himself?

  33. The potency of that “Hillary card,” in talking with common male white Trump supporters, it truly astonishing. In combination with the slanders of their single news source, the card is insurmountable. Try to say, “Trump never even read the Constitution. He IS a real estate scam.

  34. Sessions: “Good people do not smoke Marijuana.” How would YOU know? Baptists say the good don’t smoke or drink beer either, but Jesus had other issues to address.

  35. Watch Trump continue to reward Russia with one hand while trumpeting his opposition to Putin with the other hand, playing opinion and the press. Capone treated the Purple gang that way, then used the FBI to take them out.

  36. Authoritarians work to create a purely transactional condition in which there is no virtue and no common good, only parochial interests to satisfy with state power in exchange for the support of those who benefit. Frustrated single issue voters and groups are the most vulnerable.

  52. Think it out, and google for example Microsoft, Magnovox, Netflix, Toshiba, Vorizon. It is objective agreed upon truth that we are being spied on, and any tyrant can buy access to you living room. En mass, this turns elections, as interference is then targeted to certain groups.

  53. Your tech is spying on you by camera, microphone and other unknown means, because this spying is profitable and we are, frankly, stupid. Fix that, or no more free elections, and lots more tyranny. We tell ourselves it is not happening, does not matter, etc. It is objective truth.

  54. The internet is new, and Putin saw how to use data collection to control elections. Kaspersky was handling 4 hundred million computer security accounts FROM MOSCOW. Think it out. We allowed spying through the tech for security against “terrorism.”

  99. Ja, I tried to run for Congress as a centrist independent, because my rep would not say no to TORTURE. I picked up the forms for 3000 signatures amid death threats, reported it, and was attacked for reporting it. No one asked a single question. But could have been 4 many reasons.

  100. America needs to develop the Center, and independent, centrist political parties. The “winner take all” system is the textbook explanation for why all the $$ etc. goes to the two parties, but these are failing. The Dem’s, though, have not practiced the dishonesty seen on the rt.

  101. Liberal conversation is not easy, but very difficult, not to get angry but stay objective, not make ad hominem arguments, etc. THAT is what we get from liberal arts as distinct from trade schools, a people capable of choosing office holders and governing themselves.

  102. Again, start from the other end: Trump is saying that IF he invited Russian election fraud, and it turned Congress, the presidency and the courts, that is just too bad, because he won and holds tyrannical power. Start from the other end, then pick up Federalist 68 + Constitution.

  103. What is the Philo quote? John, of course, WAS a Jew. The three of the trinity is in Genesis 1, (Quran as well) but the doctrine is medieval, (because there may be something like a “fourth” as well). “Before Abraham was, I am” is plenty to get Him stoned, and “I am the bread…

  104. …But in fact; the idea of John 1:1-3 existed decades before the Gospel of John existed. And by the way; the doctrine of logos was originally created by a Jew(Philo), not a Christian, so it kinda debunks trinitarian claims. MM Comments:…

  105. From “Debating Christianity and Religion.”So we have a very, very serious question here; the author of John, copied the doctrine of logos from Philo; and presented it as “Inspired from God/Word of God”; which many Christians believe. …

  106. My friend used to say, “When God walks up and shakes my hand and says, “Hi I am God,” I will believe it. Swedenborg, to show a child an angel, showed her a mirror. But then they think, like Don, that they can make Justice, so the mystics only tell this mystery to children.

  107. Odd, too, the human default propensity to assuming that we do have theoretical wisdom. It is just as if we WERE both little imago Dei’s and little sparks of the divine. WHERE is God? We have a spark of it right here, in the human person, eh?

  108. Hell is true, in a way, if the soul is immortal and we are stuck with what we have done to others in light of truth. But it is a much lower line, crossed at murder and not simple appetites, though we do need constant penance. An hypothesis, anyway. Inhuman rather than human vices

  109. So, the Bible, Old and new together, speak very rarely of hell and rarely use the fear of hell, whereas the Medievals, both Christian and Quran, are all about the fear of hell. This is because men are bad.

  110. And then further that the one saying both is not likely to be trying to tell the truth. In the world, knowledge is based upon probabilities, but these can be compounded till one is far beyond a reasonable doubt. Monday epistemology session.

  111. But the fact of human ignorance-that wisdom is the possession of “the God”- allows the fake news people an entry, because we really do not know. But logical refutation is the way out. We seem able to know, for ex, that the Flynn story cannot be both “fake news” and real leak.

  112. Human knowledge is based upon premises which we do not know for certain. Hence, Descartes. Then Fred said, “How do I know it is I who does the thinking.” Excellent! We have no axioms.

  113. We can know when a thing is false by refutation, but proving a truth is beyond human wisdom. This is very strange, but seems, as Socrates taught, to be true. The courts are indeed in trouble epistemologically, which is why they say, “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

  114. “You are delusional,” they say. “What have I said that is false?” What is the FBI now looking into? etc: 1,2,3 “You think you have truth,” etc, they say. I can walk you through it, but if you will not look… To question the assumptions, the hypotheses, is what people cannot do.

  115. And I do not mean the pro abortion women who cannot follow that the “own body” argument applies as well to the 6th-9th month as to the first. Lots of men cannot reason theoretically either. I get my feelings hurt, but more from the pain of being human and alone. Eros=despair.

  116. I am learning the hard way not to talk with people whose goal is to hurt me and belch bile, as distinct from to find truth and justice. I will not admit to myself that they are incapable of conversation. I just can’t stop assuming they are not like animals, but equals. Soon.

  117. My accusers like to give me catch 22’s: “You are worthless,” they say. I answer: “But I have…(1,2,3,4,5,6 etc).” They answer: “You think you are so great.” “List the harms I have done, what have I done wrong?” I am still waiting. I’m sure there is something. Been destroyed: 22

    My face, but not my clothes! Sent to intimidate. Traceable to Trump. No other photo of me is on the internet, intentionally! The photo may be an abuse of FBI. No one will do a thing! I’ve had 3 death threats, and been seized for 20 days.

  16. One wonders if the Don’s lawyers will say that the Don is so powerful he can disband congress and simply give the U. S. to Russia. Congress the clueless might STILL not impeach! Unless, of course, their Koch brothers etc. would say to.

  27. About one half the “fetuses” aborted are female. In less than a year, they’d be little girls, in ’bout 16 years, women, half or more future feminists, like you.

  28. To be honest (because so antiTrump), the one thing that gave me pause about Hillary is feminist supremacy- promoting woman for its own sake, as distinct from truth, justice and the common good. Feminist supremacy is not equality. Margaret Atwood for example knows the difference.

Bowie: Cygnet Committee

Copied from Songmeanings

I bless you madly,
Sadly as I tie my shoes
I love you badly,
Just in time, at times, I guess
Because of you I need to rest
Because it’s you
That sets the test

So much has gone
And little is new
And as the sparrow sings
Dawn chorus for
Someone else to hear
The Thinker sits alone growing older
And so bitter

“I gave Them life
I gave Them all
They drained my very soul
…Dry
I crushed my heart
To ease their pains
No thought for me remains there
Nothing can they spare
What of me?
Who praised their efforts
To be free?
Words of strength and care
And sympathy
I opened doors
That would have blocked their way
I braved their cause to guide,
For little pay

I ravaged at my finance just for those
Those whose claims were steeped in peace, tranquility
Those who said a new world, new ways ever free
Those whose promises stretched in hope and grace for me”

I bless you madly,
Sadly as I tie my shoes
I love you badly, just in time,
At times, I guess
Because of you I need to rest, oh yes
Because it’s you
That sets the test

So much has gone
And little is new
And as the sunrise stream
Flickers on me,
My friends talk
Of glory, untold dream, where all is God and God is just a word

“We had a friend, a talking man
Who spoke of many powers that he had
Not of the best of men, but ours

We used him
We let him use his powers
We let him fill our needs
Now we are strong

And the road is coming to its end
Now the damned have no time to make amends
No purse of token fortune stands in our way
The silent guns of love
Will blast the sky
We broke the ruptured structure built of age
Our weapons were the tongues of crying rage

Where money stood
We planted seeds of rebirth
And stabbed the backs of fathers
Sons of dirt

Infiltrated business cesspools
Hating through our sleeves
Yea, and we slit the Catholic throat
Stoned the poor
On slogans such as

‘Wish You Could Hear’
‘Love Is All We Need’
‘Kick Out The Jams’
‘Kick Out Your Mother’
‘Cut Up Your Friend’
‘Screw Up Your Brother or He’ll Get You In the End’

And we know the flag of love is from above
And we can force you to be free
And we can force you to believe”

And I close my eyes and tighten up my brain
For I once read a book in which the lovers were slain
For they knew not the words of the Free States’ refrain
It said:
“I believe in the power of good
I believe in the state of love
I will fight for the right to be right
I will kill for the good of the fight for the right to be right”

And I open my eyes to look around
And I see a child laid slain
On the ground
As a love machine lumbers through desolation rows
Plowing down man, woman, listening to its command
But not hearing anymore
Not hearing anymore
Just the shrieks from the old rich

And I want to believe
In the madness that calls ‘Now’
And I want to believe
That a light’s shining through
Somehow

And I want to believe
And you want to believe
And we want to believe
And we want to live
Oh, we want to live

We want to live
We want to live
We want to live
We want to live
We want to live

I want to live
I want to live
I want to live

I want to live
I want to live
I want to live

Live
Live
Live

Hashtags and Bots

   From BBC World Service, I think I just learned what hashtags and “bots” are, and that it is not something contrary to the rules of twitter, but in fact the way they are making their money, central to the business model. I am so blown away by the stupidity of my fellow humans, embarrassed to have to explain what is wrong with this, incredulous that everyone is just going along with it, appalled to have to say: Do not look up then and marvel that you are under a tyranny.

   I do not know whether to leave Twitter and mankind altogether or continue and try to destroy the business model from within. I am as sick as Daniel. Do not marvel when you see the things foretold occurring, as when one stands over their own child dead on the ground. People are paying money to promote certain “hashtags” and suppress others, going along with this without thinking it out? #Boycott#  or  Twitter.

   I’ll have to work on this thought of why laws must be passed to secure these rights, and whether, without such laws, the rights are assumed under the constitution. It is much like the Plessy case, where first discrimination was considered not state action, then it was, or an employer may and then may not inhibit religion, expression and other of the fundamental rights. In some ways yes and in some ways no, and that is why we have courts to decide, and sometimes make errors, as in Plessy. This is so unconstitutional, so the end of free speech, press and voter rights, so the end of liberty…If Congress does not act 2 years into the past ago to enact laws to secures speech. Did this begin when private businesses were allowed to conduct searches of the inside of our bodies, and hence suspend any right in the bill of rights? And the people did not walk, …Somewhat as when mining companies made whole towns little tyrannies? A state is required to have a Republican form of government, and so is every city, and so is every business forbidden from suspending the rights in the bill of rights.

   Eric Schneiderman threatened to prosecute the sale of fake followers in New York, before his private crimes were made public. Garrison Keillor was attacked, the weakest of all the “Me too” cases, as I have suggested, for opposing the criminal fake president. My vulnerabilities too are collected, and my government will not protect me, but rather again be used against me, which argues for leaving mankind altogether. Merlin lived apart, a “man of the woods,” and we back here in civilization do not get why, but it is because our own injustice makes it impossible to receive him. He sees that because of our injustice, his presence does more harm than good.But I like a challenge, self rooting for the underdog, a justified suicide by mob, spirited self destruction for a cause.

      13. Not guilt or liability, but impeachment for the survival of the nation is the goal. The criminal lawsuits and civil trials will consume this man for the rest of his life, but the point is the security, survival and good of the nation. Senate as a court is strange and different!

      14. Look, just take what is needed to impeach into Congress, and start the trial on a few obvious and sufficient points. The Senate, functioning as a Court, has its own rules AND standards of proof, and its different from the criminal prosecutions and lawsuits.

      15. From Rousseau, what a man would not allow in the treatment of his own wife, mother or daughter, he ought know better than to subject women. A good guiding rule, as distinct from theoretical truth, and not that all men treat the women in their families well.

      16. Interesting too, about the “Me too” movement, as with the AIDS epidemic etc, when we throw away the traditional and ossified ethics, we quickly run into the reasons in nature, for example for the marriage customs that developed over what 10,000 years of human experience? 100,000?

      17. Not that the males are not the primary villains, or that the passive is anywhere near as bad as the active sexual harasment. Soon we may have public ethics again!

      22. Because injustice involves the violation of the rights of another, and there is no interest of the government in regulating a toxic or even seriously addictive medicine, the prohibition violates the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the Bill of Rights.

      14. The rule of law is over in America, because even when the truth penetrated the thick, coupon soaked, slavish heads of our people and Congress, we would not stand up. The consequences of having a fake tyrant for a “president” will now become evident. Pardon me.

    19. Impeachment articles are I) Election Fraud, II) Bribery III) Obstruction, IV Violation of Oath of Office, and V) Emoluments. We did not elect such a president on our own, but through the primaries, Russia ran him up the flagpole, played our vices, and we saluted.

  65. What EVIDENCE do we have that all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and that the purpose of government is to secure these rights? What evidence? Tyranny is now on us

  66. Strange, we would NEVER confirm Trump as head of the CIA, and yet he is… IMPEACH!! Face the truth of what occurred, and correct it, or suffer consequences unimaginable. We CANNOT allow Russia and fraud to elect the U.S. president, then continue to control opinion and internet.

  67. NPR; “Normalization of fascial recognition? Wouldn’t want police not to be able to do what we let companies do for coupons? AMERICANS ARE SO STUPID!! YOU JUST HAD YOUR ELECTION TURNED BY SPY MARKETING/ TARGETED INTERFERENCE and a tyranny installed which you can’t fix. I give up.

  68. Police need a non emergency number other than 911, so that people do not have to either use 911 or do nothing. Non emergency numbers are VERY difficult to access according to each locality. How about 811?

  69.  The Wall Street Journal

    Ja, do not underestimate the goals of Putin, while we allow the man he elected for us to be the pawn of his strategy to continue in the White House. Is the demise of the West solidified yet? The Apocalypse? Do we care?

    Balance to Michael Hayden, who endorses Haspel. We are not going to get an anti-torture CIA Director until we Stand Up and IMPEACH Trump, VOID the FRAUDULENT 2016 election

  71. Shaun King

    Yeah, WHY DID Waffle House call the cops? Maybe we should think twice before we call these badged and holstered little tyrants! You feel safe?

  72. Shaun King

    People are supposed to passively endure assault by badged and holstered thugs abusing their authority. This is tyranny. Are the police proud? Protect and serve? Where is the real law?

    Not a good idea, Hamas. Palestinians need to take up non-violent protest from Martin Luther King, and replace their leadership, but they cannot. It is very sad.

  74. Janet Smith

    At some point we must STAND UP and put a stop to the degeneration of our government from the top down. We ought fear the consequences fo our nation and the world more than we fear the sissy, servile Trumpsters!

    The Trump-Russians are quite active in India, since we Americans will not STAND UP and IMPEACH or correct the election fraud. Tyranny will spread around the globe, and it is OUR fault!!

    Mark A. McDonald added,

  76. Hayden says it is “80% us,” our fault. Why in God’s name will we not correct the fraudulent 2016 election? We cannot allow this fake “president” to continue. The consequence are great, vast, decisive, unforeseeable and unimaginable. We are afraid to STAND UP!! IMPEACH!! VOID!!

    Today: Hayden: “Post truth is pre-fascism” Many brilliant philosophical insights in this interview. Hayden’s new book is “The Assault on Intelligence: American Security in an Age of Lies.”

  78. No account yet from Google as to why things most usefull to Trump-Russian trolls is what seems to determine what things are listed when I google mmcdonald77 Twitter. The algorithm is NOT most recent, most liked, most retweeted, etc. We MUST get hold of the internet for LIBERTY.

  79. Again, it looks like speech is being channeled and suppressed in certain ways on Twitter. Congress has been informed, but cannot imagine how easy it would be to control opinion in this way en masse. No account yet from Google of what algorithm determines what appears 4 twitsites

    Do not let speech and opinion be controlled. We have to back up and secure the internet, or we will lose and tyranny will win.

    Yeah James Shaw! We just love when unarmed manliness defeats armed criminal insanity. We wish everyone would then have tackled the Waffle House shooter so he did not get away, as cause it could have gone much worse.

  88. Mark A. McDonald Retweeted Bill Browder

    U.S. law is being seized because we will not IMPEACH!! The Supreme Court needs to correct the fraudulent election BEFORE the vast unimaginable consequences occur.

    Mark A. McDonald added,

  89. If there is something BETTER and even more “effective than torture, prudence dictates that we do THAT, trumping the prudential argument. Persuade ISIS guys from the Quran. That works, and its true, and then they see justice is on our side because it is. If it is not, why “win”?

    On these hard questions, we look to John McCain, who sorta knows the issue. The harm caused by unreliable information vastly outweighs and particular “benefits,” but that is not th
