Justice League was Phenomenal: Atlas Entertainment made a daring, and bold movie for Warner Bros., bravo!

The critic’s war with the DC movies produced by Atlas Entertainment and distributed rather boldly by Warner Bros. isn’t because the movies are bad.  Relative to film history, the Zach Snyder directed films with Christopher Nolan serving as executive producer are damn good movies.  Modern critics are suffering from the same problem news pundits and political hacks are in the Beltway industry, they are frustrated know-it all institutionally trained, and they want to make their big mark in life by tearing down other people—because they can’t do what they talk about.   I read several of the Rotten Tomatoes reviews by many smug newspaper reporters trying to save their dying industry by bitching about the new Justice League movie.  They couldn’t be more wrong, and there is no way any of them could ever produce such a magnificent movie. Justice League on many levels is a breathtaking film.  It is one of the greats directed with great love and epic vision and respect to film history.  I didn’t realize that Hans Zimmer wasn’t scoring this one until I heard the unmistakable soundtrack of Danny Elfman and the very intelligent resurrection of the 1989 Batman theme.  The music alone represented a kind of time capsule of all the great themes of these DC characters even going back to 1979’s Superman at one point.  Justice League paid great respect to the last century long love of these charters who are a massive part of our American mythology and the critics just don’t seem to understand what train they are on.  Their hatred can be summed up with two words……..Atlas Shrugged.

I certainly didn’t miss it, and I wasn’t looking for what wasn’t there, but obviously Zach Snyder and the fine people at Atlas Entertainment are Ayn Rand  fans—and why shouldn’t they be?  Ayn Rand was a great American philosopher who made great arguments in defense of capitalism during the middle of the last century.  But Marxist supporters hate her.  They hate her great American novels—particularly Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead so any semblance to those literary references will draw the fangs of Marxists everywhere and it is that which has caused them to despise the work of Zach Snyder.  For example, let me provide some context.  Even though I was not a fan of another movie by Atlas Entertainment that was released last year, Suicide Squad, Steve Mnuchin was one of the producers and essentially went straight from that project to Donald Trump’s Treasury secretary.  I watched that film flying back from Europe earlier this year and I thought it was terrible, even though I like Mnuchin personally. The film for me really fell apart in third act, so the critics had something to pick on with that one.  But Dawn of Justice was pretty incredible and I simply love the R rated Zach Snyder director’s cut.  The people making these films look clearly to me to all be Ayn Rand fans which I share with them.  I wouldn’t say that is the only reason I love these Atlas Entertainment produced DC moves, but it’s a good place to start.  I would say that the dividing line between people who hate or love these new movies come down to whether the viewers are Marxists or capitalists.

As much as I loved Dawn of Justice, I did not like that Superman died at the end—and that clearly had an impact on the box office, which fell short of $1 billion dollars in worldwide revenue.  I could clearly see the frustration of Warner Bros. on the screen of Justice League.  The movie was only 2 hours long and it could have been four.  Warner Bros. from their perspective need billion dollar releases so they can compete with Disney’s Marvel universe—which is finally fading.  They obviously put down some creative clamps on Zach Snyder with Justice League to meddle in some of the creative input designed to maximize profit.  I was also worried that Snyder had to leave the film during post production due to a death in his family.  I wasn’t sure if that was going to show up in this movie, but it didn’t.  Josh Whedon stepped in to help finish the film and the results were impressive even with the pitfalls placed in front of it.  If this film is considered a trilogy of the new Superman movies starting with Man of Steel, then Dawn of Justice and finishing with this bold Superman who has come to his complete fulfillment in Justice League these films are some of the greatest work ever done in film—as a body of work. And I can tell you why critics didn’t like Justice League, because the point of the entire film was that Superman was dead and the world was afraid feeding the terrors from all over the universe to come to earth and destroy it as just another conquest.  Just like the hero of Atlas Shrugged, John Galt, Superman was referred to in Justice League as “the engine of the world” which is taken right off the pages respectfully of Ayn Rand’s great classic.

Marxists cannot come to grips of with the Ayn Rand concept of raw individualism.  You can see the hatred rather dramatically in the Hollywood Reporter review of Justice League.  Superman is the engine of the world and now that he’s gone the world is literally falling apart not just from aliens, but from internal philosophies that are all too similar to our current politics.  The failures of progressivism are on display in Justice League in not such a shy way, and industry critics are aware of it.  Here is a short clip from that THR review, notice how it ends.  It sounds an awful lot like a Washington Post article about Donald Trump—clearly there is a political element to the review process and Marxists don’t want the public to have their philosophy challenged in their movie industry.

“We’re not enough,” Bruce Wayne/Batman declares upon experiencing a setback with Steppenwolf. “The world needs Superman.” And so it gets him, well over halfway through the film. Suffering from psychological and memory issues, he needs to be reminded of who he is by the ever-earnest Lois Lane (Amy Adams) while he wanders around his native farmland, shirtless, until finally coming to his senses with the declaration, “I’m back now, and I’m gonna make things right.” Atta boy.

From there Superman pretty much goes and kicks serious ass in a very satisfying way—the way it has taken three movies to arrive at.  In Justice League Superman has his Indiana Jones moment from the great classic Temple of Doom when the hero is unleashed from a dark spell to just kick the crap out of the villains—and it was fun to watch. I think the notion that not even the great team work of the world’s lost gods left behind on earth from an era of greatness was enough really irritates Marxist film critics.  And I say that because if you were to go to dinner with any of them and get to know their personalities, I’m sure they are capitalist hating despots to their very core who are so consumed with Marxist fantasies, that they just don’t understand the rules of life.  Individuals make the world go, not collective group think.  We are not all better together; we are better when great personalities clear the way and make things possible.  Even though it was the team of the Justice League who all brought something to the table to resurrect Superman from his deathly slumber, it was out of their personal necessity to survive for which they had to do it—and that was something The Hollywood Reporter review just couldn’t stand.

As much as I am a Hans Zimmer fan the choice to put Danny Elfman at the helm of making music was a fantastic choice.  The way Elfman pulled together all the themes of the characters not just from the latest DC films, but from the last forty years was very cleaver—as if all these characters and their histories were converging on this very moment.  When you go see this movie be sure to stick around for the end credits—Lex Luther is putting together his Legion of Doom to combat the Justice League which can lead to a whole array of future films that gives all these great heroes something to do.  Wonder Woman was great in this movie, Batman was fabulous.  The Flash was extremely funny and brought a lot to the table. Cyborg, and Aquaman were also very good additions.  The plot to Justice League actually reminded me of the first Lord of the Rings film Fellowship, and everything was done on that type of scale.  It was just a wonderful movie going experience.  The film looks like it’s going to hit $110 million in spite of the Marxist reviews and that’s great.  Because Warner Bros. needs to be paid for their risk in letting Atlas Entertainment make such a great film that goes against the current Hollywood tide of Marxism.  There was a scene in the movie where the Flash asks Batman, “what’s your superpower.” Batman says, “I’m rich,” which was a very Ayn Rand thing to say, and it was appropriate, and true.  Justice League is not only fun, but I’d say it’s important to the mythology of our species and it’s about time that filmmakers tell such stories without apology and even a little boldness at what really constitutes the engine of the world.  Group think or individuals—and in Justice League the answer couldn’t be clearer.  On a scale of 1 to 10 I give Justice League a massive 100. If you want to send a message to the Marxist Hollywood critics, put a little money in the pocket of Warner Bros. and reward them for their ambition and stamina in bringing Justice League to life.  Because they deserve it, as do the fine people at Atlas Entertainment.

Now………bring on The Fountainhead the way it deserves.  I will be the first one in the theater when it’s released!  Go Zach, Go!

Additionally, to get insight into how the critics game works read this Variety article that was published early Saturday morning 11/18/2017 ahead of the box office takes from Saturday and Sunday.  They are clearly trying to shape the story instead of letting the market do what it needs to do because they don’t like the message–they are out to sink the film because of the content.  As of this writing, I think Saturday and Sunday word of mouth will show an uptick and will be well above Variety’s hit piece projections.  Read that article for yourself:

Al Frankenstein Must Go: He helped write the rules–now he’s had his Anthony Weiner moment

Well, Al Franken—how are you feeling?  Are you comfortable? You know, you’ve been such a pain in the ass.  As a former writer for the very progressive Saturday Night Live and massive critic of Bill O’Reilly you now have to leave the senate.  Based on the radio interview that can be heard below by Leeann Tweeden, you sexually harassed her in a major way.  The proof is all there, it’s her audio testimony and she has pictorial evidence—so based on the rules of engagement that you helped create, you have to step down immediately.  You have to give up your Minnesota senate seat. You’ve called for other people who have done much less than you have to step down, so you have no other choice.  Have a listen to this interview.

http://www.kabc.com/2017/11/16/leeann-tweeden-on-senator-al-franken/

I was always surprised that Al Franken won a senate seat based on his star power off SNL.  And his little 5’ 6” ass has been a progressive monstrosity since.  The way he spoke to Jeff Sessions just a few months ago is enough to make your skin crawl, so it is ironic that he is going down the same way he went up.  What’s that saying they have………………be careful how you treat people going up because you’ll see them again on the way back down.  Well, this whole episode is born out of that statement.  What did he think Leeann Tweeden was going to do now that the flavor of the day of all women is to talk about their miserable moments with their male counterparts in the entertainment industry—which Al Franken actually encouraged?  He knew these stories were out there.  He knew the pictures were out there. And he and Tweeden were not on speaking terms after that Afghanistan trip.  So what did he think was going to happen?

When Donald Trump said last year that what happened on that Access Hollywood bus way back in 2005 was just locker room talk, this is what he meant.  People pretended to be shocked by what he said, but everyone knows that the kind of talk he was engaged in was the type of thing everyone says when they think they are alone, especially with other guys.  Women talk the same way, only from their point of view which is the constant recipient of sexual advances.  If a woman is less than 130 pounds chances are she is getting hit on with sexual advances all the time so women have their way of dealing with that constant barrage.  But among men, they are always talking about women and their potential sexual statuses.  Is it disgusting—hell yes it is.  I personally hate it.  Its small-minded talk and really stupid things to think about, but most of the human population engages in it.  Nobody should have expected anything more out of Al Franken than what they got, which was a pervert from SNL hitting on a girl who was well out of his league and using his celebrity power to attempt to bed her.  He wrote the script, he set the stage and he figured from experience that he’d get somewhere with Leeann Tweeden if he put the moves on her during their tour.

Now that the flood gates are open women like Tweeden have every right to say what they are saying.  In her case I feel sorry for her.  In the case of the accusers of Roy Moore, Donald Trump—or even Bill O’Reilly I think the women were just seeking fame.  But in Tweeden’s case she was just telling a story from the road and she has the pictures to prove it.  Should women have to sleep with producers and directors in entertainment to work in the industry?  No.  But do they, yes—it is pretty much expected. It wasn’t always that way but over the last 50 or 60 years it has been prevalent.  The question is, should women be free of this constant barrage, because that’s not how it has been.  People just didn’t talk about it.  Ironically people like Senator Franken have established that anyone who does engage in this activity should immediately step down and remove themselves from existence.  I’m good with that.  I can personally live up to that high standard.  I think Donald Trump can too.  He may have talked guy talk with the other guys, but he’s a pretty sensitive guy and he seems to have always treated women respectfully when dealing with them.  His Access Hollywood tape was more of commenting on his shock that women seem to throw themselves at celebrities which he was at that time with his new Apprentice show.  And he’s right, women do, and when they do, they really can’t come back later and claim sexual harassment—which in many of the cases we are hearing about now, it was great for them when they were young women in their 20s, like Ashley Judd—who used sex to secure roles.  Now that they are bitter bitches in their 40s that nobody wants to have sex with, of course now they can afford to have righteous indignation—because that’s the only way they can get attention.  When Madonna said she thought about blowing up the White House after Trump was elected, that is the beaten up old hag talking that men used to line up to have sex with.  Back then Madonna controlled those men with just a flirt.  She can’t do that now.  Men now look at her and her long line of lovers and think—gross.

But Leeann Tweeden is different.  She seems like a nice girl who went on a tour to inspire the troops and Franken had a crush on her the way any adolescent boy might have fantasies about his chances with the best looking girl in his junior high school.  Most of what I heard on that tape was pretty innocent stuff from a biological point of view.  But if you apply the progressive standard to it which Franken himself helped mold—then he should be executed on the spot for using the power of his position to attempt to force sex on an innocent woman.  Right?  It’s only fair.  I mean you can’t have it both ways.  You can’t go after Republicans for sexual harassment and seek to get them impeached or removed from office, then get to hide behind some committee hearing when we find out that someone like Franken has been guilty of far worse.  He has officially lost his moral authority and I suspect that we’ll come to learn that many more members of congress will have similar stories being tossed onto the heap before it’s all said and done.  And if that’s the kind of world we want to live in, I’m fine with it.  I have two daughters and a wife that would love to not be sexual harassed every five minutes when they are not in my company.  I can live in that world just fine, but can everyone else?

Al Frankenstein as Donald Trump is appropriately calling him as this crisis is exploding is having his Anthony Weiner moment.  If you’ll remember dear reader when he was first in congress Weiner was a firebrand using the mask of righteousness to conceal his sexual addiction.  He used his power as a congressman to increase his access to women. He’s now in jail falling from being a phone call away from Hillary Clinton and the top movers and shakers of the Democratic Party.  Now he’s sitting in a jail cell for his sexual addictions. What we are learning particularly about Democrats is that they are guilty mostly for which they find fault in others.  They call Republicans Nazis because it is actually their ideology which nurtured along the most terrifying form of fascism and tyranny the world has ever seen. They call Republicans racist because it was southern Democrats who actually formed the KKK and stood against assimilating Africans into American culture.  And now they have been trying to paint Trump and many others with a brush of sexual misconduct for which Democrats are most guilty of themselves.  In Franken’s case, he has done far worse than anything we have heard to date, writing scripts that allow him to forcibly kiss women and groping them while they sleep where there are pictures that prove it giving us all the evidence we could ever possibly need.  If Bill O’Reilly had to lose his job at Fox News over just allegations, Franken has much worse coming to him.  And he deserves it—as do many others who will soon fall in his wake.

Thoughts about ‘Battlefront II’: Stories told in a very impressive new way

 

On a lighter note we are living in some interesting times.  I have been very encouraged by the glimpses of the future that are emerging, especially the new Tesla tractor-trailer that has the potential to dramatically change the transportation industry.  I am a person who gets very excited when I see things come along that expand the imagination of the human race on a mass scale, like the latest Star Wars products—whether it’s a new toy, video game, or motion picture installment.  With each new addition to that fantasy/science fiction mythology the imagination of the human race is expanding dramatically.  And that has never been truer than in the new Battlefront II video game by DICE and Electronic Arts that expand the efforts of the first version of that game for all the major platform systems over what was released in 2015.  This 2017 edition is just marvelous, jaw dropping cool, and a seriously interesting look into the nature of politics and the human soul.  There are a lot of interesting things going on with Battlefront II that are indicative of some of the greatest art our culture has ever produced.

Nobody buys a game like this to play the single player campaign mode, they buy it to play online with thousands of potential people at all hours of the day and night all over the world.  People in cultures where guns are unfortunately banned can play a game like this and instantly they are playing the most modern version of cops and robbers that we all aspired to as kids, before public schools made it impossible for kids to even make a pretend gun with their hands.  Boys, girls, young and old are all thrown into these battles together and they force you to work toward team objectives to survive by heightening your individuality to the quickest reaction times and personal aptitude.  The desire to play such a game is a very primal one, and this game is certainly one of the best to date at making everything work well and allow players to just enjoy the experience.  I enjoy the ground based combat quite a lot, but it is the flight combat that I love the most.  I thought the first Battlefront was pure heaven for my personal tastes, but in this second installment, it’s so much better, better than I thought it could ever possibly be.  One of my favorite video games that I played as a kid was the Activison Star Wars game The Empire Strikes Back which was a blocky 2D Defender type of thing involving snow speeders and a constant wave of Imperial Walkers, each that required precisely 48 hits to kill unless you managed to hit a little sweet spot that sometimes appeared on the top of the shell.  So the aerial combat in Battlefront II is just beautiful to look at and participate in.  Stunning really.

But the real star to Battlefront II is their new story mode campaign that I was excessively impressed with.  Not only is it a nice story to add to the Star Wars canon fitting in with the movies nicely, but it’s some seriously good science fiction.  For instance, the Empire has a new weapon in this story which are satellites in space that fire into the cloud formations of planets to heat up the atmosphere and cause hurricane like storms on the ground to harass their enemies.  I thought that was a very interesting concept considering that this very year in real life we saw four major hurricanes hit the United States alone, three of which made ground fall as upper category storms.  Many conspiracy theorists believe our current government can do something similar to this now, so I found it interesting that a big platform game by Disney would even allow something like that into a Star Wars storyline.  But it worked and was very interesting.   Does it advance conspiracy theories or address a tyrannical problem indicative of world governments—I think it does a lot to get a conversation going about the temptation to use weather as a weapon against dissidents.   If the Romans could have done something similar, or the Nazis, they would have.  In Star Wars, the Empire does.

The other big surprise for me was a scene where Kylo Ryn was mind walking through the memories of a captor he’s interrogating.  It was a dreamy sequence that you play through as a participant and it reminded me of an old game called Shadowman—where you had to walk through the world of death to solve problems.  I thought it was very intelligent and exhibited great skill in advancing a pretty complicated story.  The game was already one of the best campaign story lines that I’ve ever played, so this last sequence was very interesting.  At that point the makers of the game I thought were just showing off.  They knew they had a great game and at that point were just putting an exclamation point on the end of it.  They could have played it safe, but then it wouldn’t be a Star Wars movie.  In Star Wars fans expect innovation and risk.  When science fiction fans watch something like Star Trek: Into Darkness we know we are seeing touchy, feeling content that is popcorn to the base fans—Star Wars seeks  to blow minds wherever possible with ever-expanding concepts—so it’s good to see that ambition still alive even under Disney control.

Battlefront II is a massive game with huge investments put into it.  Its targeted release was announced months ago for November 17th.  I preordered it which allowed me to start playing it on November 14th, three days early and I have to say, this is one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had so far.  Previous winners were of course Uncharted 4 and the latest Zelda game for the Nintendo Switch.  Battlefront II is a massive game with a lot to do and it holds that massive population of a world that wants to play it all at the same time very well.  The scope of the game is so big that I saw it being advertised on the NFL website heavily last weekend, and everywhere else that Disney felt they could penetrate popular culture.  But honestly, no wonder NFL ratings are down.  People may be turned off by the National Anthem issue, or the high salaries and spoiled brat attitudes of the players, the concussion protocols, and the softening of the game to appeal more to women but with competition like Battlefront II to occupy people’s time, a passive NFL experience is pretty boring.

If you are looking for a great video game to invest in, then this is it. It is released to the general public today in time for the Holiday season and is the perfect thing to do when it’s cold outside and the days are short.   With two new Star Wars movies coming out over the next six months, the announcement of a new trilogy and the Disney parks putting the finishing touches on their new Star Wars lands there is a lot to be excited about for even passive Star Wars fans.  Even as Hollywood is struggling massively; Star Wars is still good enough to keep the industry alive for a bit longer all by itself.  It won’t last of course.  The motion picture experience will likely give way completely to the small screen and video games like Battlefront II.   In many ways the video game industry is still able to tell stories in the classic way that great movies like THX-1138 did; only participants can actually be part of the story instead of just viewers.  That’s what makes Battlefront II such a great offering, because it is truly great science fiction and fantasy that we experience typically in great literature and it puts you in the action as a participant to interact with other people, and that makes it extremely unusual.  Not so unique for the kids who have grown up with these games, but for the tapestry of human history where information is exchanged through art–this is a real showpiece worthy of a great deal of respect.

Secretly, Mitch McConnell Want’s to Lose the Senate to Democrats: There’s more to Moore’s accusers than just “girl power” complaints

OK, it’s officially overboard, and since nobody else will say it, I will.  We can’t allow ourselves to become such a panty waste culture driven by the indecisions of some women and their confusing whims of speculation, by constantly complaining and expect everything to turn out well.  Now that we’ve become so progressive and empowered them, you see the problem?  They are using their “girl power” to bitch about everything and to kill us all with their mixed messages.  But to accuse former president Bush who was 79 years old at the time of groping her ass at 16 years old, the latest victim of unwanted sexual advances by powerful men in an ever-increasing man hating society is Roslyn Corrigan.  The event supposedly took place way back in 2003 during a photo opportunity, but this girl and her mother just now decided to jump on the band wagon and capitalize off the event to get their 15 minutes of fame, which for a lot of these girls, that’s all they are after.  I seriously doubt old man Bush was thinking of throwing Miss Corrigan on a nearby table and going to town on her planting his seeds of manhood for the fulfillment of sustaining his family line.  I think this chick has watched too many episodes of Game of Thrones. 

Likely Bush meant to grab her waist to pull her in for the shot but accidentally grabbed her ass misjudging the distance.  It happens all the time in elevators and other tightly packed areas where humans congregate.  Knowing that, I am surprised that members of congress have been so willing to condemn Roy Moore who is running for a senate seat in Alabama after a series of women just like Roslyn Corrigan lined up, in October of all times, 40 years after the fact, and accused the Republican politician of inappropriately touching them?  They should all know better.  We can’t set a criteria like this.  Women do use sex as a weapon—and they are no better than men in their climbs for power.  Men are more literal, women are more emotional—but both have burning obsessions for power and if we allow every little thing to advance women who are craving attention—and thus power—to capture our minds the way this Moore case has, then a lot of people are in a lot of trouble—just as the 90 something year old George Bush is now.

http://time.com/5019182/george-hw-bush-groping-allegation/

I had almost the same thing happen to me recently that happened to President Bush, only the woman was about 900 years old and her ass was so big that I’d have to go five miles out of my way to avoid touching it.  But I always try to be polite and nice, especially to women and the way she looked at me after showed that she was starving for the contact which she may have done completely on purpose.  It certainly wasn’t on purpose on my end.  But that scenario sounds just like the recollection of Roslyn Corrigan.  These accusers of Roy Moore from 40 years ago is just ridiculous.  Are we really going to allow every woman who attempts to seduce a man but ends up losing to some other woman the ability to drudge up things a half a century later to affect the lives of the man?  I mean Harrison Ford was screwing Carry Fisher on the set of Star Wars when he was in his 30s and she was only 19—and our society accepted that as perfectly fine.  Once a girl starts having her period, biologically we all agree that she is loaded with the most dangerous weapon in the world, the ability to grant sex and to use it to get what she wants when she wants it.  That is how we are all wired as human beings, men and women.  I think Roy Moore by the way he’s defending himself probably had thoughts about those young girls at the time, but so what.  In the evangelical community especially, there are a lot of born again Christians who used to drink too much and have too much sex who use the church as a new beginning, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see that as Moore moved into his 40s, that he had some of that born again quality.  The guy has more than rectified anything in is most recent career to satisfy any desire to touch young women appropriately by biological predilection.  Anything he might have done wrong is only forbidden in modern political context.  It’s like outlawing R rated movies 40 years from now then putting people in jail because they watched one before they were outlawed.

The truth of the matter is worse than the accusation in this case of Moore, because many members of the Republican Party have shown entirely too much eagerness to throw the Alabama politician under the bus so they can have something even greater for them—an excuse.   These politicians like Mitch McConnell and Senator McCain want Roy Moore to lose the Alabama senate seat so the Democrats can take it because they want to lose their majority.  They want the Democrats to win so they can go back to the excuse of inaction as a body of politics.  They want the pain to stop, the expectation that Trump has in performance to go away so they can go back to the way things were, and these accusers of Moore from 40 years ago is their ticket to the good ol’ days.  So being the short-sighted idiots that they are they are giving voice to these accusers knowing that any of them could also be accused of the very same thing.  Yet they think that if they throw somebody else as a sacrifice to these goddesses of modern-day sexual interpretations, then perhaps they will be spared the scrutiny.

It was a year ago when Donald Trump went through the very same thing.  If Roy Moore sticks to what made him so popular to begin with, he’ll come out fine in this election.  The same politicians came out against Trump only back then nobody really thought he’d survive.  I remember how tough it was the weekend of the Access Hollywood tape.  I stood with Trump that Saturday morning and was one of the very first people to call bullshit on the story—and that’s what is going on with Moore now.  What he did with some young women who were doing their own kind of fishing with a young powerful person is irrelevant to what the 70-year-old man brings to the table now.  None of it matters except in feeding this ridiculous “girl power” machine that is on the rise everywhere these days hating men and thinking they will retain power based on the power of complaint.  Women are going to find that men will paint them out of their lives like just about every man does over 40 when sex is no longer a priority for them and they build a man cave in homes to get away from the constant bitching of their wives.  If a guy can’t cup the ass of some chick that is mutually looking to use her body to advance her career, there is no incentive for men to participate in anything women have to offer—because that is a basic interaction between the sexes.  The progressive fantasy is that men and women will sit down and speak to one another about what’s on their minds and treat each other civilly.  But the truth is men talk about banging women and women talk about manipulating men, and until that changes, the sex games will always rule the human species.  On the current political trajectory women will be left with all the power in the world but no one to share it with.  Then they’ll start bitching because nobody wants to deal with them.   All women are doing successfully with all this bitching is making America like almost every house on Thanksgiving Day where the men sit in the living room watching football while the women cook in the kitchen complaining that all the men want to do is watch TV.  Women can take over every senate seat, every house seat, they can even be president.  Taking away the game of the sexes won’t make a better world, it will simply give women one more thing to complain about as they apply their makeup and cover themselves in perfume to get men to look at them only to complain later that nobody is interested.   When the game of the sexes gets too hard and its more of a pain in the ass to deal with women who play too many games with sex, most men including the most powerful in the world will buckle to retreat to their man caves where everything makes much more sense.

Knowing all that the establishment Republicans who have so easily come out against Roy Moore should be ashamed of themselves.  By speaking against Moore they are feeding this progressive girl power movement with more logs on the fire which will eventually burn them too, just as it has former president Bush of all people.  And they were willing to do it for the simple desire to retreat back to how things were.  They want the Democrats to take over the Senate so that they can safely hide in the shadows letting Chuck Schumer fight Trump’s agenda getting the Republicans off the hook of expectation.  That’s why they have come out against Roy Moore.  They don’t care about the women, they are afraid of the social expectations that modern politics is applying to them—and they want out.  If Roy Moore is defeated, then it will only take a few more seats lost to give up the majority which is precisely what Mitch McConnell wants.  He doesn’t want to be the majority leader any more.   He just wants to protect the swamp, and instead of having the courage to say it himself, he is hiding behind a bunch of old ladies who are complaining about something that happened 40 years ago—and he’s dumb enough to think that will work out well for him and all the other men involved going forward.

For women it’s the oldest trick in the book and every married couple knows how it works. In an argument between men and women the woman brings up something from the past which the man feels guilty about to disarm him and win the fight.  Most of the time the woman gets her way as the man buckles under the guilt.  Ultimately what causes the man to buckle is his fear that he won’t get sex from the woman until they rectify their argument?  So the man being the short-sighted biological entity compelled to make the same mistakes over and over again gives in to the wife and the wife advances herself in the family always keeping that card in her back pocket for use whenever she may want something again.   Over twenty to thirty years of this, and perhaps many wives latter once a man’s prostrate starts going and they are no longer interested in sex because all the attractive women are the ages of their daughters and the women around them are losing estrogen and starting to look and feel like other men—they just retreat to their televisions, their man caves, or into politics where they can get away from women and be around other men who understand.  And now women are even going into those places where men hide, and nothing good can come out of that relationship.  What happens when you paint an animal into a corner with nowhere to go?  They get pretty vicious.  Right now they are hiding behind Roy Moore, but once he’s out of the way, where will they go after that, after they’ve lost the senate, they’ve lost their man caves, and they’ve lost people like Moore and Trump to hide behind?  I predict a bad result—nothing good can come from it.

And for the record, even though Trump and his daughter have not backed Roy Moore–I stand with Roy Moore.  I think he’s a good judge and a good Christian.  I don’t care if he had an orgy with a bunch of girls in his car–that was a long time ago and his career has shown that he’s not that kind of person over a long period of time.  If he was a horny little bastard and those sins carried him to the house of religion for which he has functioned with great conviction, then I’m good with him and would be proud to vote for him in Alabama.  He’s a lot better person than most of those senators in Washington–and given these allegations, that’s saying a lot.

The Idiots Clapper and Brennan: Advice is only as good as those who give it–and my new hat

Trump is just saying the obvious, James Clapper and John Brennan are political hacks who made our American intelligence community into a bunch of fools for hire to take down political enemies of the progressive movement.  They worked for both parties; mostly Democrats and they have been defanged due to Donald Trump’s election.  But it wasn’t Trump who delegitimized the intelligence community.  It was they who did it to themselves several years before the 2016 election.   They were idiots, Keystone cops at best, fools who would be embarrassments in a kindergarten class.  Before Donald Trump ever came along I was ashamed of those two idiots, and John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Rob Portman, and a whole lot of other people in Washington D.C.  I lost my trust in the intelligence community many years ago and these losers only validated my suspicions.  They are the reason Trump was elected—for what they represented, so they are kidding themselves if they think anybody believes that their opinions have any merit.  Only slack-jawed losers would listen to them and grant them any credibility.  The way they did their jobs over their tenure under Obama’s administration could only be equaled by a dog shitting in a yard—then eating it.

E34898BE-BBB8-4F9A-A055-AA2BBBAEC394On the anniversary of Trump’s election this year I bought the nice white Inauguration hat shown here from the Trump Store.  I had been looking at it for a long time, all summer really, and after a year of Trump essentially being in office I had to reflect on how proud I was of him and my support of him so early.  It was only a few years ago that I watched testimony by James Clapper and found myself wondering if I was in the Twilight Zone.  The guy was an idiot, so very early in 2015 I put my support behind Donald Trump.  I always liked Trump; I loved his books, his television show and his general approach on life.  At first I thought he was a bit audacious and that he had been married too many times for my liking, but the more he talked, the more I wanted him to be president.  If Donald Trump was anything, he was a competent person.  People like James Clapper and John Brennan were not.

I thought they were crooked the moment I first saw them.  There was nothing “trustworthy” about them.  I didn’t want them running the CIA or any intelligence branch of my government.  I wouldn’t want them running a snow cone machine.  It is laughable that people like John McCain would think that there was anything of any merit to respect in the American intelligence agencies.  It is an insult on all Americans to even offer up such low-class fools to serve in any kind of spy agency, and trust that they wouldn’t turn that responsibility against us all in a moment’s notice.  The bottom line on the Russian story perpetuated by people like these two is that there is nothing there.  It was completely made up hoping to conceal the drain to the swamp that Trump promised to unplug.  And their unnatural anger toward Trump reveals their intentions.  They hate Trump because he’s good and sees through their silly attempts at concealment.

It is really scary looking back on it to think what might have happened if Trump hadn’t won.  I’d likely be in jail now, because I had made a decision not to sit on my hands and let the world be run by idiots like Clapper and Brennan.  John Brennan is the kind of guy who might have been a cafeteria monitor in high school who gets food thrown at him yet can’t figure out where it came from.  When I was in high school I threw food at a few John Brennan types every day, and I never got in trouble for it.  You know why dear reader?  Because they were too afraid to deal with me and so long as they didn’t know who was throwing food at them, they didn’t have to confront the truth.  Usually cafeteria monitors were teachers or assistant principals and were there to assert authority among the school kids.  But I figured out very early in life that the veil of authority was just a ruse to cover the fact that the employees were often afraid of reality and needed the cover of authority to mask their lack of social valor. So when I would throw my entire fruit salad at them, from only 15 feet away, they would never engage me—because to do so required responsibility, and that was the thing they were most afraid of in the world.  When they criticize Donald Trump’s presidency I see them look at him the way those cafeteria monitors looked at me.  They hate him because he’s so good, and that he does not fear them.  That leaves them to live their lives like the out-of-touch dad in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  Lost, afraid, and stuck in adult bodies rotting away slowly day by day.

The real injustice is that these idiots actually got a pay check from us all for a job terribly done.  If after all we have paid them they can’t prosecute someone like Hillary Clinton and would insist on starting World War III with Russia just to cover their own ineptness, we should all be angry.  They didn’t deserve the money we paid them.  And why would a stout businessman like Trump listen to those two idiots, which McCain insists upon.  What would Clapper and Brennan possibly know that Trump doesn’t?  Advice is only as good as the people who give it, and Brennan and Clapper aren’t very good—so why should anybody listen to them?  That makes no sense.

As I look at my new hat I can’t help but feel a lot of pride that Trump not only made it to the presidency, but his Inauguration was one of my fondest memories.  It was one of my best memories of 2017, and may be one of the best of my life.  At the time I was just happy he was elected but looking back at how stupid people like Clapper and Brennan look in comparison it is astonishing that we survived as long as we did.  It’s not just those losers in the Intelligence community that made Donald Trump the president; there are a long line of people just like them to plant the seeds of rebellion over a long period of time.  Trump was just the solidifying force that pushed everything over the edge.  But accepting things they way they were just wasn’t an option.  If Donald Trump didn’t work out, I was prepared for armed conflict.  I wasn’t going to yield my life to a society ran by these idiots.  And they should have never thought it a possibility.  Every time they bring up the fake Russian story it makes me angrier, because their assumption is that we are all actually that stupid.  But then again, they can only see in us what they know about themselves.  They know they aren’t very smart, and if not for a government job, they’d be losers sleeping in the streets living aimless lives.  What they hate about Trump is that no matter what happens in life, Trump will always be a success, whereas they need their little government jobs to indicate that they are important people of the world, like the cafeteria monitors in high school.  What they hate is that we now know that their roles are just tokens, and hold no real power, or intelligence.  And that terrifies them most of all.

The Evil of Liberalism: They can’t live with us, and we can’t live with them

Once upon a time I lived in an apartment on the U.C. campus on the second floor.  Directly below was an extreme liberal who happened to be the director of a play, one of the most controversial in Cincinnati’s history that was running at the Taft Theater.  She was deeply connected to our local media, the U.C. campus and the politics of Cincinnati and using those connections she managed to slide through the many controversies and bring to life Equus for the extreme conservatives of the Queen City.  The play featured full nudity and sex on stage in front of everyone which I thought was weird at the time, I still do.  But living a floor up from the director I had an opportunity to speak to her about the whys and how’s and after learning more about her mind, I was even more disturbed.  She seemed like a nice person when you spoke to her and was even a little attractive for an older lady.  At the time I think she was in her 40s when I was in my 20s.  From the apartment windows next to my room I could see clearly down into her apartment through the reflection and she was constantly nude.  She seldom wore cloths which to a twenty year old seemed cool, but to the long view of my mind which lasts many lifetimes was pretty kooky.  I mean, as a species, we invented cloths for a reason—it’s nice to have a barrier against the elements of living.  But in her liberal view of the world, primal reflection was important so she thought there was merit in a native approach to life.  Therefore, her production of Equus in Cincinnati was more political than artistic and as nice as she was, she felt it was her right to attack the conservative sensibilities of her audience with art that insulted them—to wake them up and ignite in them an activism toward liberalism’s merits.  She was essentially using sex to sell the values of liberalism.

And talk about sexual harassment since we are going back as far as four decades and penalizing people for things so far back these days—as a young man, 19 to 25 I wanted to use my natural charisma and insight to ride my good looks into an acting/modeling career.  I had dated several models, my wife was a model and her sister was being groomed to be a model.  Being around attractive people a lot gave me a window into what goes on at photo shoots and modeling agencies.  I was just a little stunned when my photographer who was a lady doing my portfolios wanted me shirtless most of the time and she always wanted my pants unzipped.  I thought that was weird because if we were modeling pants for department stores why would they want to see them coming off?  Turns out this lady had the hots for me and how she wanted to photograph me had nothing to do with production photos, and more to do with her personal fantasies.   Looking back on it I could easily say she was sexually harassing me, but I would never think to do so.  I’m certainly no victim, and I never have been.  I thought it was kind of funny and I went about my business.  But I can easily see how wires get crossed in these things and I can promise from personal experience that most people who end up as models go through some of that.  My wife hated it and the moment she could get out of modeling, she did.  She always thought the people in that industry were creepy and thus, we ended up doing almost nothing with our lives that involved the entertainment industry.  I went on to write and do other kinds of work in entertainment on and off for the next twenty years, but my wife’s first instincts as a young attractive woman was correct.  The people in entertainment that were overwhelmingly liberal had this desperate attraction to primitive behavior and they really couldn’t keep their cloths on or the cloths of the people they are working for.  My wife’s sister went further with modeling than my wife did and actually ended up being considered for the New York scene, but she was not comfortable with nudity and that put the clamps on her career.  Because after all, producers, directors and modeling agencies figured that if this girl won’t show the goods, there are 1000 outside their doors who will—so they have no patience for such young women who won’t even show their tits.  Would Emilia Clarke have the opportunities she is having today if she didn’t get naked and have sex on-screen in the Game of Thrones?  Not a chance.  She’s a great talent, but she had to play the game.  That’s why she’s where she is today, not because she’s a great actress.  She had to feed the machine of liberalism to advance her career.

There are many other stories I could tell, but in reflection regarding the news of our day and whether or not we can live in a America where liberals have an equal say in our democratic process, as a way to manage the Republic for which we stand, one nation under God, indivisible—and all that– I am quite certain that we can’t.  For most of my life until about ten years ago I dealt with liberals often, and I was able to do so and not compromise my own very conservative beliefs.  I was a live and let live guy for sure.  I didn’t feel a need to convert a liberal to a conservative and if they were a little flaky I found some common ground to deal with them, which I still do.  One on one, I am very accommodating to people who don’t think the same way as I do.  But when I write, that is a much more private thing and I do so to share my ideas with people essentially because I want to help them become better.  If I can take my experiences and observations and make people around me better, I am willing to do it.

More though I have the feeling that liberalism is just evil—it is born out of evil and it works for evil needs only.  There is no place for it among a free people—because liberalism isn’t free. The intentions of liberals is to use the natural desires of our physical bodies to exploit our weaknesses and seduce us into a collective unification for an ultimate destination of evil action—whether its political support for mass killing, like abortion, or destroying evidence and manipulating the American intelligence agencies to give Hillary Clinton a free pass to keep her out of jail even though she committed acts of extreme abandonment of conscious righteousness.   Liberalism in every form allows for the furtherance of evil in our world and there is no way to avoid that conclusion.  Liberalism attaches itself to the weak and strives to make them equal in the world not by building them up, but by tearing down the world around them to the levels of their vile discontent.

Hollywood is throwing itself under the bus right now hoping to reset their reputation and throw people off the real trail—the far worse things that go on to people who want to be in movies or on the pages of a magazine.  And by casting such a wide net they hope to derail the world of politics such as in the case of Roy Moore who supposedly 40 years ago allegedly touched a girl who was 14.  The guy is 70 years old now—who the hell cares?  Those kinds of thoughts have long left the mind of an elderly man, and that makes them much more trustworthy.  There is no rectification with liberalism; there is no low that they will endure which is too much.  They are against virtually everything that is productive about human thinking and they represent a vile evil which is seductive and aims to destroy our virtue at every opportunity.

In my cases with the women I spoke about, especially the photographer I have always been ultra confident.  They may have had ideas but my raw conservatism was a big turn off to them which is why things never went further than what I’ve described.   In conversations with that play director I never thought Equus was anything more than an excuse to get people naked on a stage to make audiences uncomfortable—and call it art.   Heck even Daniel Ratcliff—the Harry Potter kid fell for that crazy liberalism crap when he played the lead role in Equus as one of his first opportunities after leaving the Harry Potter movies.   He did the full nudity thing in London where the play exhibited recently and for the same reasons that I described about the Taft Theater presentation.  Instead of the producers being my neighbor, it’s a new set of liberals who are using shock to advance their primal utterances and pull mankind into a flutter of liberalism from which it can never escape once seduced.  Daniel Ratcliff destroyed his career when he allowed his managers and industry producers to convince him that showing his goods on stage was a good thing to do.  Even Harrison Ford’s blockbuster status fell to earth in the 90s when he made the movie Presumed Innocent where he had sex with a woman very graphically on-screen.   Ford had all the accolades of a top-notch actor in Hollywood but that wasn’t enough, he wanted an Academy Award, and to do that you have to sign up for the exploits of liberalism.  Well, Ford never got his award and he has gone back to what made him great to begin with, but never to the same level—because he compromised himself.  Clint Eastwood went thought a similar spell with his movie Tightrope where he appeared as a sex crazed detective and was actually nude in the film.  Hollywood and liberalism in general is always looking to get people to compromise themselves from a lofty spot of admiration into a lowly figure no better than the collective goo of mass socialism.

I could actually write several books on this matter, but for brevity it is clear to me that liberalism is evil and cannot be reasoned with.  They cannot live in harmony with the rest of us and cannot have an equal stake in our American government.  I know as a very conservative person that I’ve bent over backwards a lot to attempt to respect other people’s views.  I’ve had a unique life full of rare opportunities and I’ve navigated them all unusually pure.  In my case I married early to a woman with an unusual commitment to purity and that kept me out of a lot of trouble.  But I credit myself with aligning myself with such a person to allow me to write all these articles now and to eventually conclude what the nature of liberalism truly is based on personal experience.  People like Harrison Ford can’t—because once you eat from the tree, you really lose your ability to criticize it—so it’s far easier to make liberal causes your new religion—like global warming is to many today—a scam designed to rectify the mistakes of their past.  If the God they shut out can be the new God that they walk on they fantasize that if they protect that God that their sins of the past might be forgiven.  But it can’t be.  Liberalism cannot live in the same world with the rest of us.  It doesn’t want to.  It needs chaos to grow, and emotional instability to sink roots into our lives, and it hates purity, justice, and resolution.  Liberalism only seeks destruction of intellect and human advancement, and is not conducive to the greater needs of an evolving species.  Therefore, I think it’s time that we declare it such and proceed forward on that foundation of thought.

Why You Should Cancel your Facebook Account: Finally, Sean Parker is saying what I have all along

I first heard about Facebook in the mid 2000 time frame while I was on the set of a movie.  The celebrities there were the first to get it and promote it, and among themselves it was the latest great thing.  At that time I had a Myspace account, which is probably still out there somewhere.  I haven’t been to it in years, and it was through that site that my networking with all the movie people happened.  I participated in that first jaunt into social networking and my work in Hollywood at that time was proof of the validity of that type of use.  We were all on break at the lunch from the catering truck and sitting at picnic tables having sandwiches and having a first look at this Facebook thing and comparing it to Myspace.  My reaction to it was that the new thing was evil and I told that to Jennie Garth who was sitting next to me showing me how the new platform worked.  The people around us of course thought I was being dramatic.  They were all part of her network and they were nice people excited about this way to speak to so many people so easily.  But I knew when I first looked at the Facebook platform that this thing was different, and was a bad thing.  I had recently read a book by Jim Marrs called Rule by Secrecy and it was obvious to me that Facebook was that big device that came along through the private sector that would connect as a spy to the Deep State and that it was essentially a mouse trap to track our thoughts and actions for a wider behavior grid of big brother management of our lives.

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/11/09/former-facebook-exec-sean-parker-says-god-only-knows-what-its-doing-to-our-childrens-brains.html

My resistance to Facebook was fine for a while until my novel Tail of the Dragon in 2012 came out and my publisher had a fit that I refused to network on the site.  As they said, everyone was on Facebook and part of my marketing contract with them stated that I needed to do everything I could to promote the book to the public and Facebook was the best modern age mechanism to do so.  It was at that point that I half heartedly let my son-in-law create an account for the book so that my personal information wasn’t on the site.  The Tail of the Dragon had a little site that fulfilled my contractual obligations, but it never went anywhere because it wasn’t connected to any real activity.  Facebook needed my network to be alive, so without my input it wasn’t like Myspace, or even Twitter in that people can follow you and watch you—which they can on Facebook but not in the same way.  What is different about Facebook is that it requires the users commitment to the wall in order to network to other people.  Otherwise nobody will find you.  Facebook essentially demands input and use of your time and if you don’t give it your time and attention, it doesn’t do anything for you.  That makes it all too human in the way it manipulates behavior patterns.  My relationship with my publisher up until the marketing of my novel had been great through every phase until we got to the marketing portion.  Even though I had a great blog site and a decent presence online, Facebook was their primary choice in building audiences for their books, so our relationship deteriorated over that sole issue.

Everyone in my family does Facebook and none of them understand my hatred of it but it all goes back to that night in Los Angeles where I was able to see Facebook being launched by celebrities.  They were excited about it and were doing the soft sell to their fan bases which expanded the reach of the social media device so that people could get close to their favorite movie stars on the off-chance one of them might “like” something they say.  Myspace originally came about to help promote musical bands, which essentially worked for everything as a way to connect people who might otherwise not meet.  That was after all how Hollywood found out about me and solicited some of my work with bullwhips.  Of course my refusal to use Facebook put me socially on the out, even with my own family.  That and my work with the Tea Party movement starting in 2009, I’ve described these days as having to make a choice in the cultural civil war that is taking place and I was one of the first to make a serious commitment to that cause, which cost me quite a lot of street credibility.  But it all goes back to my resistance to Facebook and the way it massively took over the lives of just about everyone I knew.  Sure, I could have went along with it and made many millions of dollars, but it went against my personal beliefs of what human beings should be doing with their time, and I wasn’t going to participate.  Facebook counts on peer pressure from family members to pull you in so they can plug into your behavioral profile, but with me it has had the opposite effect.  Neither my wife or I are on Facebook and we never will be because the nature of it is extremely intrusive, and manipulative.

That is why I found Sean Parker’s comments about Facebook to be very validating this past week.  Parker of course is one of the founders of the social media device that has opened up this new revolution of human manipulation.  Facebook takes advantage of several human weaknesses, aspects of existence that I think we should all overcome, not surrender to.  That was my problem with it in the beginning and continues to be.  I call it the nosy neighbor complex where it allows people to observe from a safe distance what you are doing in your life and you are inspired to surrender that information for the validation of your actions in the form of a “like.”  By always seeking that “like” for a new photo or saying, your peer groups are actually steering your intellectual input which then transfers over to real life behavior.  People find themselves wondering if an action they are doing will be judged appropriately on Facebook, because they don’t want the social disapproval of their peers telling them otherwise.  Additionally Facebook connects people of the present with people of the past going all the way back to childhood.  At first this might seem neat, having the ability to contact long-lost people from your high school days and seeing what they are up to, and even maintaining friendships with them.  A sister-in-law of mine actually married her fourth husband who was a friend from high school, and it was Facebook that made that relationship possible.  But what Facebook gets out of the exchange is much more devious, it’s the behavioral trail that the user leaves behind which then builds a case in the Deep State for control of our mass population in a very negative way.  So it was interesting to hear one of the Facebook founders validate everything negative I have said about Facebook  for over a decade now—when I was one of the only ones saying it.

Where Facebook fails is in its ability to capture the free will of people.  In their study of election patterns for example, say in the case of Donald Trump, Facebook was useless to polling groups because people held back on their opinion about Trump due to their fear that they would receive negative social validation feedback from their peers, so they silently supported him more than Facebook was able to detect in their behavioral analysis that they sold to Deep State organizations—which is how Facebook makes their money and why Mark Zuckerberg thinks he can run for president in 2020, based on Facebook feedback, which was faulty from the start.  That left the Deep State ill prepared for the election revolution that followed, and created the first break in trust that Facebook could be counted on to steer society in the proper direction.  Mark Zuckerberg had no explanation that assured the Deep State that they could continue trusting Facebook.  After all, the social media device had been out for over a decade and it had gone as far as it could.  Facebook did what it did, but nothing more.  I did not capture the free will of people, only the things they sought approval from regarding their peers—creating a behavior control mechanism, but not showing the true desires of the human soul.

I have always argued that all societies need to align themselves to their souls and not the persnickety traits of gossip and neighbor watching—the small minded stuff that anchors human beings to primate behavior.  Facebook inspires primate behavior, and I am against it—so much so that I will go against the grain even if I’m the only one—which it feels like I have been.  But I am very happy to be proven right once again.  You know, if you people would listen to me more, you’d be a lot better off in life.  A lot of people read what I write and they profit from it.  But sadly a lot of people read and they silently enjoy the content, but they fail to act on it.  If they listened to what I told them to do, they would be a lot better off.  Think about that in the future.  What Sean Parker is saying now is worthless, he already made his money and I’m sure he’s off on the next big tech revelation.  But just remember I said what he’s saying now all along, which takes a lot of guts, and it wasn’t easy—and cost me a lot personally.  It was the right position to take.  So remember that in the future when I say something and next time don’t wait until someone like Sean Parker provides validation.   Facebook is evil and it always has been.  Your participation in it feeds that evil expeditiously which is not good for the human species in any way.

I have since lost all my Hollywood friends to Facebook, I put myself on the outside of their networks and those contacts dissolved over time.  I’ve also ostracized the publishing industry, which I worked very hard for twenty years to nurture.  Most of my family is only on speaking term on holidays with me due to Facebook.  They love it—I hate it. My blog site, this Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom endeavor didn’t help.  Since Facebook was obviously trying to pull society in the other direction I figured I pissed off everyone anyway, so why not do it diving instead of falling if you know what I mean.  Right is right, and if you are going to take a position, you might as well do it in a spectacular way—so I started this site as a way to hedge against the massive online corruption that is Facebook.  Facebook is no good and it never has been.  It feeds the forces of evil with gossip and behavior patterns and it has surely destroyed at least two generations of people around the world, intellectually. To defeat that evil, you have to stop feeding it.  If you have a Facebook account, you are still part of the problem and will be until you stop feeding that evil for what it wants in spite of your personal desires.   My position against Facebook has cost me a lot, but I’d pay it all over again and more, because it was the right thing to do.
