“Small change got rained on”-Tom Waits
I forgot that the first Wednesday of every month is “Politics Wednesday”.
Is it just me or is it kind of a big deal that Bernie won Wisconsin? From what I can decifer he was behind in that state not too long ago. He is supposedly behind in NY state by ten points but that is a defecit he has overcome before(hello Wisconsin?).
We are living in a (Borderless)Media (Feedback)Control-System(Conspiracy). NPR(Not Public Really anymore) spends more time discussing how the Republican Party can stop Trump than it does discussing the groundswell of the Bernie Sanders campaign. Both are intriguing stories but the excitement at Bernie’s rallies is not felt on the ground in mainstream media outlets. It’s as if their cameras have anti-shaky-cam technology that could allow for live capture of an earth quake to go unnoticed on camera. Everything looks normal on tv. The Revolution Is Not Being Televised. You can find it on the net.
side note to self: I have to remember to drink water and not just coffee: sugarfree, con leche.
Incrementalism: highlight the ‘Mental'(read ‘Loco’)
Incremental change is a fallacy. This is sort of how we might describe a period of time or year wherein nothing much significant happened. When the ship’s Captain wants to keep going straight, He/She holds tightly to the steering wheel so as to not fall “off course”, god forbid. The Captain will all along be making many small(incremental) changes along according to developments in the wind and tides, yet all the while using the same old map that was drawn well in advance of the journey with the same navigation patterns still drawn onto it: Incremental Steerage?
If the Captain is going to institute real change, He/She might have an entirely different destination in mind. Maybe the purpose of the voyage has changed or maybe the needs of the passengers has changed. In order to arrive at this alternate destination, the Captain will head back to drawing board, recreating the old map along with all new discoveries and draw a new navigational pattern entirely.
Seemingly Irrelevant Question: What does Bill Gates eat for dinner? Does he go %100 organic? GMO? That information may be private.
“What’s Goin’ On?- Marvin Gaye
Everything happens in a vacuum in the corporate controlled media. There is no historical context given for any event unless the context is something that happened yesterday. Complete (even temporary)disconnection from “that reality” provides a much clearer context for the mind. Unplugging from the internet and even the people and things in your sphere, going within, meditating is really the most objective journalistic viewpoint you can find. I love information(media) but is so easy to forget yourself. Sometimes it is good to institute your own “media blackout”.
