Trying to get to the bottom of what the U.S. media has been ignoring regarding Ukraine is exasperating. It begins earlier than you think, and involves many, many more people than I can include here, but let’s give it a shot.
February 2014 – The President of Ukraine is removed from office due to pressure from the public. A new president, Poroshenko, is sworn into office.
March 2014 – Due to severe financial shortages in Ukraine, Barack Obama agrees to use U.S. dollars to help them rebuild internal services, etc.. In order to insure the money is used wisely, he taps Joe Biden to oversee Ukrainian relief.
April 2014 – Devon Archer (Biden’s financial advisor), Hunter Biden, Chris Heinz (John Kerry’s stepson), and V.P. Joe Biden travel to Ukraine to meet with officials there.
May 2014 – Devon Archer and Hunter Biden become board members of Burisma Gas, a Ukrainian company involved in natural gas extraction. Also in May, the U.S. gives 1.8 billion in aid to Ukraine with the condition they form a “National Anti-Corruption League”, to be headed by Artem Sytnyk. Sytnyk is given a direct line of communication to the White House.
November 2014 – The 1.8 billion sent to Ukraine is deposited into PrivatBank, a bank owned by Ihor Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky coincidentally also owns Burisma Gas. Due to an “accounting error”, PrivatBank loses the 1.8 billion in U.S. aid.
June 2015 – Donald Trump descends the escalator in Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for president.
By the end of 2015, the United States has become the #1 financial backer of the Ukrainian government. Tony Podesta (Clinton acolyte), Tad Devine (Bernie Sanders chief strategist), Greg Craig (legal counsel to Barack Obama), and Paul Manafort are tasked with working with President Poroshenko to oversee the additional financial support being provided by the United States.
January 2016 – DNC (Democrat National Committee) employee Alexandra Chalupa begins working with Ukrainian officials to develop opposition research on the Trump campaign. Chalupa then sends an email to the DNC saying, “I think there’s a Russia connection…”. She begins her focus on Paul Manafort, who is at the time not associated with Trump or his campaign, because Manafort has split with Podesta/Craig/and Devine over who to support in the next Ukrainian election.
Also in early 2016, Obama invites Ukrainian prosecutors and law enforcement to the White House in order to direct them to not investigate Podesta/Craig/Devine and to focus instead on Paul Manafort – who was backing Poroshenko’s opponent in opposition to the White House. Ukrainian officials were also directed to not investigate the missing 1.8 billion dollars in U.S. aid.
March 2016 – In Ukraine, prosecutor Viktor Shokin is investigating Burisma Gas and it’s board, including Hunter Biden. Joe Biden then travels to Ukraine and directs the government to fire Shokin or an additional 1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees will be denied…and in Joe Biden’s own words, “son of a bitch” they fired him. In Ukraine court documents Shokin states that he was explicitly fired for his investigation into Burisma. He states, ” Obama…and Joe Biden in particular…were telling heads of Ukrainian law enforcement…how to investigate and whom to investigate”. Shokin was also investigating the embezzlement of U.S. aid through Ukrainian NGO’s financed by George Soros. During this time, over 1 billion in additional aid to Ukraine goes missing.
Coincidently, also in March 2016, Paul Manafort volunteers to work for the Trump campaign. DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa then begins working with the Ukrainian embassy in the U.S. to tie Manafort’s dealings to Trump. The Ukrainian embassy issues a statement saying they were “coordinating on an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa”. Chalupa then works with journalist Michael Isikoff – who writes a Yahoo News article claiming Trump ties to Russia through Paul Manafort.
April 2016 – The DNC hires Fusion GPS to get opposition research on the Trump campaign. Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, whose wife works for Fusion GPS, suddenly has the infamous “Steele Dossier” and moves it into the jurisdiction of the DOJ.
June 2016 – The Obama administration has the FBI officially partner with Artem Sytnyk’s Anti-Corruption League. At the same time, secret FISA warrants are issued on Trump campaign workers based on the Steele Dossier. Sytnyk proceeds to provide the FBI with evidence implicating Paul Manafort in corruption. The next day, Tony Podesta permanently closes his huge lobbying firm tied to the DNC and the Clinton’s.
Obama then appoints a new ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanavitch. Shokin’s replacement, Yuriy Lutsenko, wants to begin an investigation into Manafort, Burisma, and the missing billions in U.S. aid. He also wants to look into DNC collusion with corrupt Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on Trump, the misappropriation of a total of 7 billion dollars in aid, Burisma’s 3 million dollar payout to Hunter Biden, and U.S. interference in Ukrainian criminal cases. He meets with Yovanavitch about this and is directed to only investigate Manafort. Yovanavitch then denies visas to Lutsenko and other officials involved in the investigation.
November 2016 – Trump is elected, against the predictions of media and government officials.
July 2017 – Sarah Sanders, in a recorded briefing to the U.S. press, says that the Ukraine has provided proof of collusion between the DNC and now-disgraced Ukrainian officials in a successful attempt to interfere in the U.S. election…by targeting the Trump campaign during the election. The press, again, ignores any evidence of DNC/White House corruption, preferring to focus on Donald Trump Jr’s emails.
October 2017 – Ukraine then proceeds to indict and convict Artem Sytnyk and the Anti-Corruption League for corruption and interference in the U.S. election. During the trial, audio recordings of Sytnyk are released…with him saying, among other things, “Yep. I helped…Hillary. I helped her. I think she would be better for us…but Trump, I think…what he is doing is better for the Americans. Hillary…she belongs to the cohort of politicians who compromise the hegemony in the U.S.. Both in the U.S. and the entire world”.
2018 – Due to widespread corruption, the Ukraine is in chaos. Nothing proceeds regarding the investigations.
April 2019 – After 2 years of investigating “Russian collusion”, the Mueller report comes out. No evidence of obstruction or collusion on the part of Trump and his campaign is found.
Also in April of 2019, Ukraine elects a Trump-like outsider as President, Volodymyr Zelensky. Zelensky begins an attempt to remove the many corrupt elements inside the Ukrainian government.
May 2019 – President Trump fires Marie Yovanavitch as ambassador to Ukraine. The DOJ also begins it’s investigation into the origin of the Russia probe.
July 2019 – Ukrainian President Zelensky recalls and fires his ambassador to the U.S.
July 25th 2019 – President Trump phones President Zelensky to congratulate him on his election victory and to inquire – as is his duty as chief of U.S. law enforcement and in compliance with a 1999 treaty with Ukraine to investigate corruption – into the actions of Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, the CrowdStrike DNC server located in the Ukraine, and Burisma Gas. No withholding of aid to Ukraine is discussed during the call.
August 2019 – DOJ form requirements for filing a whistleblower complaint are altered allowing for second and third-hand hearsay as reliable sources. Within days, a whistleblower report is filed by an unnamed CIA operative – based on 2nd and 3rd hand knowledge – and handed directly to Democrat Representative Adam Schiff’s Intelligence Committee instead of going through normal DOJ procedure.
September 2019 – Adam Schiff and fellow Democrats begin an “impeachment inquiry” into President Trump without a floor-vote in the House of Representatives as required by law.
This is just the Ukraine timeline. This doesn’t even touch the separate events of the Russia probe, or of the 25th Amendment push, or the leak investigations, or any of the other endless attempts to abort the Trump presidency. It all stinks, and it all goes back to Obama, Clinton, Biden, and the DNC. Can you imagine being the target of all of this disgusting corruption? Do you now understand the depth and scope of the absolute corruption and criminality of the Obama administration, the DNC, the Media, and the Democrat party in government? All while the Republicans do nothing? Do you see the importance of Jeff Session’s recusal and it’s implications of Republican tolerance, if not cooperation, with the DNC, DOJ, and FBI?
You are being lied to on a massive scale. All to protect Barack Obama and his administration, as well as to protect the corrupt Letter Agencies. How anyone can continue to believe anything coming out of the press and the Democrats is truly amazing. Every bit of information in this column comes from previously published reports, either in the U.S. press or Ukrainian press, yet none of it was investigated nor covered. Insanity indeed.
” We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us…” – Barack Hussein Obama
There is currently much gnashing of teeth and rending of garments over “interference” in U.S. elections. Well, elections lost by progressives at least. In all of the talk and media screaming about Russia and the Ukraine, and whether or not they somehow changed the outcome of the 2016 presidential contest, there seems to be absolute silence about the real arbiters of election interference.
To be honest, it’s not just election interference. It’s life interference. It’s interference in how you find, consume, and digest information. Not just political information and content, but literally every megabyte of data available to you.
The providers and purveyors of the internet are your enemy. By omission and manipulation, giant Silicon Valley corporations are shaping every aspect of your life without your knowledge or consent. The “masters of the universe” are indeed at work, banking on the public’s ignorance…and if that bet doesn’t pay, they have made sure that you are kept from seeing information that is contrary to the global progressive narrative.
For instance, YouTube claims to be a platform for user-uploaded content. By claiming platform status, YouTube gets to avoid responsibility for content created by it’s users. In actuality, YouTube is a publisher…and it shapes and controls what you see and can search for based on their progressive politics. For instance, if you’re a conservative or libertarian, and you search for content that mirrors your views, you will be directed to the opposite. YouTube will bury your search results, and make it difficult for you to find what your looking for.
Now, you may say, “So what? I don’t use YouTube.”. Okay, that’s fine…but I bet you do use the internet. At home, at work, in your car, whatever. It’s probably where you get most of your information. Alphabet Inc., the international conglomerate that owns Google, and Facebook Inc. control over 70% of the internet. So what does that mean? That means they control the flow of information as well as your access to it.
The reason this should trouble you greatly can be demonstrated by a simple experiment that you can try for yourself. Go to the Google image search page and type “Black couples”. As expected you will see pictures of black couples. Next, type “Asian couples”, and yes, you will get exactly what you asked for, no surprise there. Now, type “White couples” into the Google image search and…you will get pictures of interracial couples, black couples, Asian couples, white couples with adopted minority children, and white people in blackface.
This is just one example of what these evil corporations are doing. Why? Because by controlling what you see, hear, and read…they are controlling you. And worse, children are being shaped by this kind of insidious manipulation. Whether it’s the climate, the news, entertainment…really anything delivered to you over the internet…you are being played, and played hard. It’s time to rise from our collective slumber and find a way to put a stop to this…before you wake up and find that your kids are sneering Greta Thunberg clones that believe in 57 genders, hate “whiteness”, and live in fear of the weather. And since Alphabet Inc. owns the servers used in presenting and storing this essay, the search engine used to find it, and the platform hosting it’s existence….it may well be too damned late.

In case you missed it, today marks eighteen years since the 9/11 attacks. Following that horrible day, The United States dropped nukes on Medina and Mecca, sent SEAL teams to secure the “Dome of The Rock” and the Saudi Royal Palace, and immediately stopped immigration from Islamic countries. In addition, domestic mosques were placed on a watchlist by the CIA and FBI. America re-embraced it’s can-do spirit of rough individualism and entreprenourship. To show the world how resilient, courageous, and steadfast the U.S. is in the face of the attack, the World Trade Center was rebuilt exactly as before, only taller and more magnificent. Since then, militant Islam was relegated to the religion of third world despots and peasants, stopped in it’s tracks before it could advance further. An entire generation of Americans were raised and educated about the greatness of their nation and western civilization, as well as the dangers of tyranny and cultish groupthink. Almost 2 decades later, Islam is defeated, America is wiser, patriotic, and unified, and the globe basks in the glow of a renewed Enlightenment.
Oops. Well, that’s how it should have gone. Instead, America was defeated that day. In the wake of 9/11/01, citizens of the United States watched as their government used the attacks as an excuse to pass the opposite-name “Patriot Act”, allowing the government to spy on, collect data on, and virtually control it’s law-abiding population. The President decided to invade 2 countries that didn’t have much at all to do with attacks, namely Afghanistan and Iraq…..the first to protect poppies or something, and the latter for revenge against it for not liking his Daddy.
In the fervor of anger over 9/11, and with patriotic duty, thousands of lives and limbs, and 7 trillion dollars, have been sacrificed…and for what? Iran, once contained by Iraq, now levels it’s influence and arms to combat the U.S.. Iraq, once a secular buffer against jihadi Islam, you know, like Libya used to be, is now a giant training course for middle-eastern inbreds. In Afghanistan, where Empires Go To Die, nothing has changed. Well, except that we now guard their opium trade and look the other way while they treat women as chattel and young boys as sex objects. What a strategy! Thanks John “Captain Kangaroo” Bolton! Good riddance, douchbag!
And what’s happened to The West, you ask? The civilization that brought more out of suffering and more into freedom than any other? It’s capitulated, castrated, emasculated, and dying…if not dead already. Millions of Islamic Africans have swarmed and taken over a decadent and flaccid Europe, and the europeans themselves are masochistically flagellating themselves for not surrendering fast enough to the Horde. Want to know what Europe looks like? Want to know why ethnic Danes, Swedes, and French will be a minority within just 25 years?
If you’re an American, and think Europe is dumb…what about you? What boob did you elect president for 8 years? Barack Hussein Obama. I mean seriously, how bad did Dubya f*ck up for us to get this piece of sh!t? Good job, White Guilt!
Thanks to Bush and Obama, millions and millions of awful people, yes, they’re awful, from Central and South America have poured into the United States. Contrary to every democrat running for president, they didn’t come because of Global Warming (Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!), they came because of what informed people call, “Free Sh!t”. Not to mention they’ve all figured out how incredibly vapid and stupid the recently-educated American is. “Like, I have white privilege and whiteness and stuff…and toxic masculinity ( though masculinity has disappeared and that’s why we’re having these problems, but that’s for another day ) is responsible for, like, everything bad, and, like, black people need extra help ’cause they’re not as smart as me and stuff, and ban, like, guns and babies and stuff…’cause my college and stuff.”. Yes, these are the same idiots who believe in diversity through discrimination and equality through outcomes. Oh, and they believe that trannies and satanic drag queens are healthy and wholesome, too.
But wait! We’re not done yet! In America’s failed response to 9/11, they’ve also decided to completely capitulate and bow before their enemy. Why? Because when in doubt, elect your enemies as representatives!
In reality, and from a historical perspective, America and the West may have died on 9/11/2001. Two decades on, and Western youth are communist-indoctrinated, identitarian morons. Western politicians and governments are either advancing their own destruction or cowering in fear. Trump, if anything, has been a momentary pause if not a last-ditch effort to reverse or stall the rapid descent into chaos….but it’s not enough. Without a realistic and harsh examination of where western civilization is, and where it’s going…and without a plan to stop it now…”never forget” seems a cruel joke. But hey, stay positive…10 years from now today will be a national holiday replete with falafel tacos and a public stoning. By any and every measure, the monsters that perpetrated 9/11 have been successful. But by all means, let’s complain about President Trump’s tweets, shall we?

“We are not at war with Islam…” – Barack Hussein Obama
“On 9/11…some people, did something…” – Representative Ilhan Omar
Once again, Memorial Day is upon us. And once again, most people in the U.S. will be smiling and laughing while chuggin’ brew and slingin’ barbeque. Many enjoying their celebrations this weekend are completely oblivious to the real reason for this mislabeled “holiday”…….those that have fallen and paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to their nation. In the link below you will find my serious and heartfelt tribute to these heroes in a column from 2017’s Memorial Day.
In the here and now of 2019 Clown World, however……I find myself adding something else to memorialize. Like sanity. You see, in Clown World America, this is a wholesome time at Church or the local publicly-funded library:
Perhaps that’s just what being a progressive comes with, I don’t know. But in a world where the mentally ill commit child abuse using tax dollars, who could be surprised that this poor kid below is the poster child for an “empowered” generation? Isn’t it cute? I can totally see this kid’s generation storming Normandy beach on D-Day. Thanks public education!
Don’t forget to cover American icon Kate Smith – famous singer of “God Bless America” – in a plastic burka because she doesn’t conform to 2019’s ridiculous “morality”. Smith’s statue might as well be a Confederate War Memorial, and we know what do with those, don’t we?
In Clown World America, The House of Representatives is the most important branch of a branch of government. I mean technically they are supposed to pass budgets and propose legislation, but who’s got time for that when you’re busy investigating your enemies and using the power of the federal government to create opposition research? Spitting out hate through your dentures while being the most powerful person on the planet is hard work, isn’t it Nancy?
Hey Madam Speaker, is it a “national emergency” that the equivalent of the population of Atlanta, Georgia comes illegally across the border every 90 days? Up to 40 million unassimilated and illiterate foreign nationals – most using public services and schools – in your country is definitely not a problem. I mean, really, it worked for the Romans, right? It’s as healthy as transitioning little children from one gender to another, I say.
Hopefully none of this will put a damper on anyone’s fun activities this weekend. Most of us can gleefully continue to be completely unaware and uncaring about those that sacrificed for our nation. Where’s the mustard? My hot dog’s getting cold.

With the release of the Mueller report and the subsequent delivery of A.G. Barr’s summation, many who have known that the investigation into Trump/Russia was garbage have been celebrating. They are fools. Why? Because the perpetrators of this ongoing coup still walk and talk freely, and the media that enabled and encouraged them are still broadcasting. No new eyes have been opened to the biggest scandal in U.S. political history. Half of the country still doesn’t see the truth, and sadly never will.
With regards to Russia’s desire to sow chaos in The United States – and the U.S. is not without sin in this department, but I digress – their efforts have been completely successful. Imagine their laughter and surprise when hearing that the Obama administration and the Clinton Syndicate had engaged foreign intelligence agents to manufacture opposition research against the Trump campaign. Also imagine their satisfaction that the U.S. political establishment and it’s propaganda arm – the mainstream media – then continued, and continue, to promote, proliferate, and defend this absurdity, all while Russia’s ultimate goal of dividing and balkanizing the American population was completely successful. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll nearly half of respondents said they thought “Trump…..worked with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election”. To think of this result as anything other than complete victory for the progressive and pervasive globalist agenda is utter folly.
So then, where are the purveyors of truth and justice? Nowhere to be found it seems. Alleged and supposed Republican “patriots” and “lions” of the Senate – like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul – have been sitting on the their donor money and proclaiming “Muh conservativeness!” while not supporting border security, infrastructure, or an investigation into the previous administration’s garish abuse of power. Sure, there’s Devin Nunes, but as a whole the Republican establishment is now exposed as a faux-opposition party. They have done absolutely nothing to stem or staunch the wounds of the progressive Democrat machine and it’s loving and willing accomplices in bureaucracy and media. In fact, they have conspired with the instigators and perpetrators of what can be only called a palace coup, and it’s not over…..and it never will be. They will never admit to being liars, or wrong about anything they have said and done. It would be an impediment to their quest for unlimited power.
And now we come to the Progressive Left. Sigh. Either through willful collaboration, incredible partisan activism, monumental stupidity, or all three…..the Democrat party, the social media monopolies, and the corporate media have engaged in the most blatant, horrific, and intentional division and destruction of American society that has ever occurred. Even after the Left’s Messiah Mueller failed to deliver the goods on Evil King Drumph, they have not given up on their fever-dream of absolute destruction of everything that stands between them and his downfall. Addressing the border, fixing America’s broken and outdated infrastructure….who needs such distractions when there are piggish globalist corporate donors and personal vendettas to satiate? Let’s instead propose race war…..oops, I mean reparations, post-birth baby killing, lowering the voting age to 16, letting illegals vote (like they aren’t already, I’m talking to you California), and outlawing the Electoral System…..oddly, the same one that dictates how we elect senators and congressmen and women in the first place. If illegals, kids, and inmates were MAGA hat wearing Trumpians, would anyone advocate for them to vote? If the Electoral College was handing the Left victories, would they want it abolished? Yeah, thought so.
Ask yourself, what would the results of the past midterm elections have been if Mueller had released his report or finished his scam investigation before they were held? So you know, he knew there was no collusion or corruption between the Trump campaign and Russia for over a year. Further, what would the results of the midterms have been if Mueller had not only released his findings on Trump, but actually investigated Obama and Clinton and their roles in this scam? Isn’t it odd that no scrutiny whatsoever was given to Clinton’s campaign? How do you investigate influence in an election without looking into all campaigns and the sitting administration that allowed the supposed interference to occur? Also, if Republicans had been fighters instead of co-conspirators of this hoax, would they have lost all those seats?
No matter what happens, the dividers and conspirators have gotten away with it. Right this minute they are seeking to undermine A.G. Barr ( a Bush acolyte that has no love for Trump ), and after that they will turn on Mueller, just watch. In fact, why has CNN not shoved a mic in the Special Counsel’s ample face? I realize they are super busy promoting anti-white racism and censoring dissent, but you’d think somebody would ask him something. No matter….CNN viewers don’t even care that Chris Cuomo is the brother of the sitting Democrat Governor of New York, and that his father was one of the most prominent Democrat politicians of the last half century. I’m sure Chris, when not flirting with Don Lemon, has no bias nor political agenda. Just like ex-Clinton campaign manager George Stephanopoulos has no agenda or bias as ABC’s senior news guy.
Unfortunately there are no magic sunglasses that the ignorant and indoctrinated can don to reveal the true nature of the world they inhabit. Sadly, I now know that even if there were, they would not believe what their own eyes would show them. The Progressive/Democrat/Leftist Industrial Complex has become Jonestown…..and man-oh-man, they just can’t get enough of that Kool-Aid. I forget…..how did that end again?
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true: the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” – Soren Kierkegaard
There is a new theme emerging from the progressive propaganda machine, and it’s “morality”. If you pay attention, you will find the M-word being bandied about by politicians in their stump speeches, by late-night talk show hosts, and laughably….by the entertainment industry. Whether by coincidence or design, all are using the same language about morality to decry and describe our current national climate. At the same time they are employing a unified tactic to not only win elections and gain power, but to also further their destructive social agenda.
According to our betters in media and politics, the crass immorality, indecency, and racism of King Donny Drumph must be overcome. The fact that the United States is undeniably on an economic upswing under Trump’s guidance compared to the malaise of the Obama decade is irrelevant. The fact that Trump was a universally liked American icon, and that he was never accused of racism or being “mentally unhinged” before running for president is also irrelevant. The 24-hour, non-stop campaign of hate and outright lies being waged against Trump since coming down the escalator and announcing his candidacy has been breathtaking, and for many, it has worked brilliantly. I find it quite sad that so many are incapable of asking themselves this question: What has Trump gained personally from his presidency? In case you didn’t know, his net worth has taken a massive hit, and so has his brand and the future of his progeny. In fact, the end result may be his absolute personal destruction.
On the flip side, those now consumed with the morality of the nation and it’s president are the very same people who have brought us to cultural collapse. It is no coincidence that while entertainment, media, and academia have advocated for the poisonous philosophies of progressivism – the fabric of society has simultaneously become rotten and decayed. The ego-centric purveyors of selfish personal escapism and depravity now accept awards for their indecency, and while doing so they spout talking points about “acceptance”, “tolerance”, and “love”. The most immoral and vain among us now profess their virtuous fides, and cast their god-like visage down on the plebs in disgust for not worshipping at their Christian Louboutin and Gucci clad feet. Pay no mind to the spread of gender-based mental illness and absolute civic ignorance, just feel good about yourself for never saying “no” to anything while avoiding the condemnation of the GroupThink mob.
The left is now of one mind: They are the arbiters of all that is right and good. No matter how crazy and illogical their ideas and opinions, they are correct. No matter how historically foolish their initiatives are, they must be respected. Regardless of the incredible lunacy of sacrificing individual liberty and prosperity in a quest to change the course of the planet’s weather, they must be taken seriously and their policies obeyed. To oppose, even mildly, is to bring judgment and then wrath, and atonement is impossible. Only blind devotion will do, and in that devotion even your most devious actions will be overlooked, if not outright endorsed, excused, and condoned. If you don’t believe me, just ask Jussie Smollet.
Yes, you’re going to hear much about morality and how it must be returned to our society and it’s discourse. You’re going to be told that there are systemic and massive inequities all around you that must be addressed and atoned for. Why? Because in the crusade to “fix” these problems, the owners of these voices will become very wealthy and powerful. Who cares that in the hundred-year march of the Progressives none of these problems have been solved ( because they can’t be – they can only be identified, acknowledged, and understood ), they have only worsened. The oft-repeated and calculated lies designed to obscure the truth from you are so pervasive, so well crafted and produced, that to pierce their veil requires diligence and discernment. Up is down, right is wrong, sane is insane….that is the environment you inhabit, it is the air around you, and to forget that or be lulled into apathy is folly. The worst among us now will be judge of what’s moral….because once you frame your opposition as not just wrong but evil, there is nothing you won’t feel justified in doing, and that is a very dangerous, and immoral, place to be.
“Moral justification is a powerful disengagement mechanism. Destructive conduct is made personally and socially acceptable by portraying it in the service of moral ends. This is why appeals against violent means usually fall on deaf ears.” – Albert Bandura
