looks like history has made room for us after all
MY gosh it looks like i have the run of this place.
Have had for months now.I rather like that.
It would be nicer if someone would actually read this rubbish but still you never know,
maybe someone does.MAYBE SOMEONE DOES.
I do try to stay on topic
political stuff, topical
stuff progressives would agree with or find interesting.
Perhaps I'm not really that complex or tormented
Perhaps i'M JUST capricious and a bit mad.
but i think history is important, as important as that which is occurring right now
because it does repeat itself , history
it goes in cycles
society lurches forward and then it lurches back
and then 100 years later someone tries to write a book about what it all meant
who were the villains and who were the heros
often people mean well and end up doing very bad things
and as often people only interested in power accidentally drag society kicking and screaming out of the darkness
sometimes people and events are too complicated to simplify
sometimes egomaniacs change the world in both bad and good ways
but they are strong and smart and bold enough at least to try
everybody has a favorite political figure
a favorite philosopher
my favorite drunk i think would have to be christopher Hitchens
but the historical figure i am just obsessed over
like some sad lady ga ga fan
is napoleon Bonaparte
you probably think he was just another garden variety dictator
(thats because you've listened to the English)
it not really true
sure he was power mad
but he was also a glorious bastard child of the revolution
if you've ever been curious
heres a bit of info
welcome to my matrix
i THink therefore I AM
