More Than Just a Movie

What is your dedication to the Democratic principles of national autonomy and representational government? Foreign aid? Rationing and inflation? Years of military conflict?

Hitler was elected in 1933. Nazi Germany took over Austria in 1938. The German resistance consisted of small, isolated groups and was unable to conduct widespread political opposition. Resistance was more organised in occupied countries. Hundreds of thousands of them were murdered. The Allies won WWII in 1945 with the military involvement of several world powers.

Ukraine will require foreign aid in order to keep a democracy in place for as long as possible. Then military assistance will have to be funnelled to guerilla groups resisting Russia. Money and material aid will need to be entered to a variety of underground resistance organisations.

Here at home, there will be more inflation. More shortages. Outages. More and larger public programmes will be needed, else many will suffer immeasurably.  People will die in zones of military conflicts and occupation.

So. Many. People. Will. Die.

It will be hell. Are you at all ready for this?

Foot Cramps

 


My feet are cramping really terribly. I've drunk some chocolate milk (potassium) and am considering sugar-free Powerade. In the meantime, this friend is keeping me company.

Shocks of pain fresh out of the GD blue. Need relief.

The Problem Is That America Is Back



My post on twitter in reply to President-elect Joe Biden, with Biden's tweet first.

Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) "America is back."

Freedom2B (@Freedom22BB) Replying to @JoeBiden
"Well-hidden detention centres are still concentration camps. Silent deportation is still expulsion of immigrants. Unacknowledged cop murders of Black People are still state-based lynchings.

"The problem is precisely that America is back.

"Make America More Just."

Election-Day Sunrise 2020




Sunrise on election day, Tues 03 November 2020.

Line of orange rests atop dark horison. Hidden sun casts off a layer of deep yet brilliant yellow. Clouds lie above that layer, containing dark grey with highlights of dark, dusted rose pink. The sky above the clouds blends from a light dusty purple to a cold, oceanic blue.

The Insulting, Disenfranchising Filth of Clinton's Anti-Poor Policies

Mum worked a full-time service sector job that broke her body, furthered her path towards diabetes, damaged her mental health (fatphobic and sexist management), and ate into the time that she could have spent in class or studying for her Bachelor's degree. She survived multiple instances of severe suicidal ideation by the skin of her teeth and because a professor cum friend leveraged her status and privilege to help Mom get access to mental health care - all whilst Mom was working a back-breaking service sector job, raising three children, and going to college.

Clinton's destruction of aid to the poor kept my family in extreme poverty for the entirety of my childhood. We went without electricity several times, for days and weeks at a time. We went without heat. Our water well dried up because of the filthy racist/labour trafficking I'm sure sexually abusing agricultural entrepreneur across the road, and of course we had zero financial means of digging a new well. We drove two miles up the road once or twice per week to fill pails and jugs with water at my aunt's place so that we could drink, cook, bathe, and drink.

I learnt nothing of the appreciation for work that those wealthy conservative white male policymakers thought that they would teach me. I learnt resentment for the entire capitalist system. I learnt how exploitative it was of BIPOC and the poor.

Clinton and his many racist, disenfranchising policies can rot in hell.
