Gimme Shelter


This seems appropriate right about now. And here at the Compound we wonder if Big Tech trying to ban people who disagree with you is somehow "progressive." Like wow, "I'm a socialist, that's why I support Silicon Valley billionaires telling everyone what to think." Absurd ain't in it and you'd think they'd recall the Bolshevik revolution eating its own, but no, history's not taught anymore, and neither is truth.

Without that, an objective standard of reality you conform to or don't, the accordance of mind to thing, you're left with what? Opinion and its enforcement, with the exercise of power unchained from any external constraint. Or to put it another way, with an unchecked lust for power, and we've seen the results. The Nazi KZs, Russia's Gulags, Cambodia's Killing Fields, and on. In short, with the mass slaughter of the 20th Century. 

I pray that this utter evil isn't heading our way, though it seems close and perhaps we're already in it. How many babies are killed in the womb, every minute of every day? Ask yourself, what will a people or nation which condones such a thing not do

So here's the Stones:

Thanks, Dr. Swankenstein, for the tip.

My record as a prognosticator is so dismal all I can do is fall back on the old time Boy Scout Motto, "Be prepared".

I'm in a foul mood of late and will apologize to all here for being so inclined on this the Lord's Day.

I should think, not so much "progressive" as "Stalinist".

Just like the Holodomor, there is nothing, nothing whatsoever, these people are not capable of. Cambodia level societal extinctions. Whatever name is applied to what Mao did in China. What was that called, anyway?

I firmly believe they'd cut a deal with China to EMP the country if they thought it would keep them in power. Power over what, you might wonder. It doesn't matter over what. Just power, more power, and absolute power the much preferred ultimate objective.

Right with you, WSF.

WWW, their lust for power is insatiable. It'll destroy them in the end, which is terrifying, but in the meanwhile...
