Fascism by Default!

Maybe LJ will never bear down on We the American Bloggers, especially if we have paid accounts.  Maybe their own scheme is only to mess with Russian LJournalistas, until it loses so much money, everything collapses eventually, and we all become legacy accounts.

However, the mere fact that LJ moved its servers to Russia, means that service has become so bad here in the United States, that it the equivalent of censorship.  It is virtual techno fascism - by default.  Posts keep getting eaten away.  Posts and comments get blocked and destroyed by 400 and 404 error messages.  This may have well been the work of Stalin, but it comes from something worse - even more cold and random: The brutal reign of the all powerful Big Mistake.  He is everywhere - a ghost in our machines - a force to be reckoned with - an accident waiting to happen again and again.  It will lead us all to madness!  The example below will reveal just how demonic Mr. Big Mistake can be, for he has slaughtered my most groovy community!

Bernie. In a heartbeat!

Here is something I am posting to bernie2016. (Note to LJ Friends: I don't actually vote, since I am not a citizen. Instead, I work hard on this sort of stuff, and have also been very "politically" active in the past)..

Thom Hartmann has hosted Bernie on his show every week, basking in his (supposed) conviction to democratic socialism. But, like virtually every other liberal talk show host, he grouses that Bernie, "probably doesn't have a chance to win the Primary." So, I ask, what is this game being played - this fantasy of words and supposed academic sophistication - when all the while it is assumed that Bernie will actually lose?! Why are they spending months - years - bandying about these false promises and hopes about real democracy, when they are praeter-consciously devoted to supporting Hillary, when push comes to shove, which they "know" it will?! Why are they wasting their own time, and the time of millions of listeners?

You have a right to vote for Bernie Sanders.

The most important post you will ever ignore... [This is a personal post with an eye to letting it at least be viewed by folks over at so_very_doomed, and one or two of my own communities]...

Awake #5 - Against Entropy, (gunk)

Invictus - William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
