Is that a statue of Queen Æthelflaed?
Because pointing out another's insignificance is always so uplifting.
I thought the statue of the woman looked saxon. But now I see EM has labeled the photo 'Joan of Arc.' Oops. I'm an idiot.
Being reminded of one's insignificance when being concerned about forces that have a direct impact upon one's life is a bit like being told that other people suffer much worse than you is supposed to cheer you up! ;-)
I'm busy reading Mark Twain's book on Joan of Arc. Must be something joan of arcy in the winter air here ...
Just watched Ken Burns' documentary on Mark Twain yesterday. So, something Mark Twainy is also in the air.
Made me want to get his book, "Following the Equater."
Still haven't decided which is worse. Our insane clown president, or The Deep State intent on getting rid of him. Regardless, one couldn't ask for better entertainment. Albeit, I don't see this movie ending very happily.
Loved the opera. And yeah, what did happen to Ward Churchill? I had forgotten he was the author of 'Little Eichmans' -- a phrase I've used many times. Guess he ended up on the scrapheap of those who threatened the empire.
But here's my moonbeam theory and i'm sticking to it. Way better than pizzagate: ETs. Disclosure. And the ruthless evil fucks who want to cull the population are down to 1/3. Guess who they are. Pick your oligarch. But the 2/3 in the deep state are ready to do the leak-o-rama on the Culture of Secrets. "911" seems to have indicated that LOTS of people can keep a secret and maintain a "conspiracy" that big... using weaponized memes and anything else that's necessary to suppress the ideas/ technology etc. we have already received somehow from the "others."
Remember we are a 0-level civilization. So we can assume there are at least 1s... maybe 2s... "out there." Now think of "civilizations" that are 300-level and beyond. That's who we're dealing with. They are trans-dimensional beings. I thought the idea of "meme warfare" kinda ridiculous. Like a live squirrel fight. Like "air warfare" was during the Civil War. Lowe's balloons were as far as it got. 50 years later there's the Red Baron. The US Civil War wasn't the first "modern" war... but it might have been the last ancient one. We need to evolve quickly to where war becomes as repulsive as cannibalism... or the smell of shit.
But armed with cruel hate, his craft and power are great. On earth he has no equal. That was before drone warfare.
