Pathogen Path to Power

I want to have a bit of fun today and use fiction to commentate on the experiences we’re currently walking through. I came across an article entitled, “America’s New Normal—Silent, Obedient Consent”. In this article the author references the movie, V for Vendetta. I’ve seen the movie once or twice, but as a teenager watching it, I didn’t really understand what was going on or the message conveyed. I find, upon refreshing my memory, that this movie is more relevant today than it was at is release. Click and enjoy.

Politics Isn’t Everything… And That’s a Privilege

The beauty of a free country, a country with liberty, is that politics doesn’t have to be everything. Do you understand what a rarity that is? In many countries, where government oppresses and controls every facet of someone’s life, politics and government truly is everything, no matter how hard the citizenry may try to escape it.
