We Need New Words.

— 3:40 am Sunday, 29 April, 2012… (-1˚C / 30˚F in Arnprior)

Joel Skousen (http://www.joelskousen.com/) just said “All American Presidents since Ronald Raegen have been puppets to the ‘Globalists’.”

What the bleep is a globalist? It sounds like people using this buzzword apply it to: “a conspiracy of Elitists who believe they have the right to pull the strings, to manipulate ‘the great unwashed’ and sacrifice 4 or 5 billion people to insure their positions as secret dictators, invisible, out of the line of fire, safe in their bunkers, sitting on piles of gold and silver and laughing at the people they intend to butcher for fun and profit.”

I don’t think that has anything at all in common with any concept of ‘globalism’.

Who would have anything to gain by scaring the rest of us with rumours of ‘Globalists’ taking away our sovereignty?

I mean it, we need better words, better labels. Calling a Rabid Elitist an ‘Elitist’ doesn’t have the right kind of punch.

Do words like Fascist, Nazi, Communist- really mean anything? Are they carefully chosen ‘button words’ that can be used to shut your brain off and elicit the kind of reactions that they’ve carefully tested on groups of ‘the little people’?

—Ack—

(I keep hearing hidden agendae in the voices and word choices of news readers/ It’s harder to tell what’s going on while looking at the faces of television news people.)

—anyway, yes the world has gone crazy and yes it still gets worse-

Can we quote Bruce Cockburn here? “the trouble with normal is it always gets worse”?

—Have a nice day—

Local Political Cartoon

3:06 am Sunday, April 29, 2012. (-1˚C / +30˚F @ the Ottawa Airport)

A recent political cartoon in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide/EMC (The two local freebie newspapers merged last winter) shows a guy on a telephone saying this: “I’ll stop believing that all politicians are dishonest when you stop believing that we’re all  stupid.”

— The whole world sometimes looks like a rabid political cartoon gone bad.

I’ve been listening to people on a radio talk show arguing over what the definitions of leftists vs rightists really are.

Were Soviet style ‘Communists’ really fascists pretending to believe that the people they were herding around were all created equal (to them?)

Do ‘Free Market’ types  have an agenda? What might that agenda be? “Let the bankers rule the world and manipulate everybody into debt so they can call all the shots”?

Have the definitions of all types and forms of economics, governments and philosophies been put through a double speak grinder? Like a meat grinder that spits out b.s. where nineteen eighty-four type double speak rules? Love is Hate? War is Peace? Peace is Hell?

Are all forms of government (at least all the ones we’re aware of?) necessarily psychotic?

Do we have to be out of our minds to allow anybody, elected or appointed or whatever…. tell us what to do?

—Hey- Let me know what you think….

—thanks,
