HYSTERIA FOLLOWS CARNIVALS OF CARNAGE: DON’T DARE LEAVE!
This Day in History
Today around the globe, quite pertinently, is World Refugee Day; as Roman imperial power declined and imploded fifteen hundred and sixty-five years ago, the fighters of Flavius Aetius grappled with the forces of Attila the Hun at the Battle of Chalons, in what is now France, the Romans sanguine to declare ‘victory’ when Attila’s troops temporarily withdrew; just three years shy of eight centuries subsequently, in 1248, a first intellectual bastion of a lineal descendant of Roman imprimatur, Oxford University, obtained a Royal Charter in Norman England; in a sort of ‘reverse crusade’ three hundred eighty-five years before this point in time,the Irish town of Baltimore suffered a sacking at the hands of wide ranging Algerian pirates; MORE HERE
A Thought for the Day
Repressing human sexual energy essentially induces fascism or other forms of social pathology that operate at the level of existential threats to every single sector, or expression, of human society, such oppressive machinations a popular method, for all that, since they assist in turning young men into butchers and fiends to do the empire’s bidding, though the results are often ‘unfortunate’ in any aftermath to such hostilities or in the eventuality of those soldiers who survive and return to keep company and make marriages and rear infants into children and youth with less, or, even worse, equally brainwashed women.

TODAY’S HEART, SOUL, & AWARENESS VIDEO
APROPOS JUNETEENTH, LITTLE GEORGE STINNEY’S JUDICIAL MURDER
A graphic and factual reenactment of the last five minutes of the youngest child ever murdered by vicious bigots and abuse of judicial process, in the event a South Carolina fourteen year old by the name of George Stinney, who died in “Old Sparky” for a crime that he had nothing to do with, as multiple historical investigations, documentary work, and journalistic reportage make brutally plain, to the extent that now even South Carolina admits its hideous permission of homicidal injustice, an appropriate interlude the day after Juneteenth and a year a few years following the first dark anniversary of mass murder in Charleston by a killer with a similar mindset as the South Carolina ‘authorities’ in 1944.

A first-person account from Hechinger Report of escaping poverty in Appalachia: “I have now been a student at the University of Kentucky for two years, and my time as a Wildcat has been the most incredible, eye opening experience of my entire life. I am a Gender and Women’s Studies major, and through my course work, I have been able to learn about the poor, Appalachian region that I come from and get a better understanding of why the things I saw and experienced while growing up in that area occurred and are still occurring every day.”
A Vogue reprint of a great, timeless essay by an iconic writer: “To celebrate Vogue’s centenary year, we’ll be looking back at some of our favourite archive pieces from the magazine. In the November 1924 issue, Virginia Woolf penned an essay musing on how our affection for an author is based on more than their stories. “
A New York Times posting that looks at a prize awarded to a deserving South Korean writer: “Widely praised by critics in the United States and Britain, “The Vegetarian” is Ms. Han’s first work to be translated into English. It was selected by a panel of five judges, who considered 155 novels in translation, and chosen over novels by more established writers, including Elena Ferrante’s “The Story of the Lost Child” and the Nobel Prize-winning Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk’s “A Strangeness in My Mind.””
A Truth-Out that contextualizes the role of copyright and making information unavailable in terms of making the super-wealthy wealthy: “We grant patent and copyright monopolies in order to provide an incentive for innovation and creative work. It is arguable whether these mechanisms are the best way to provide these incentives. For example, in addition to making drugs very expensive, even when they would be cheap in a free market, patent protection also provides an enormous incentive for drug companies to misrepresent the safety and effectiveness of their drugs. But the key point for the inequality issue is that the strength and length of these monopolies is set by government policy.”
A Reveal article that lays out some consequences and conclusions drawn from the tragic events in Orlando: “We investigate what happened in Orlando, why mass shootings in America keep happening and how individuals around the country are tracking the damage.”
A High Existence posting that analyses humanity’s biggest psychological Achilles tendon, especially in regards to the currently occurring environmental devastation: “But perhaps more importantly, human beings are frequently reluctant to accept uncomfortable facts. The theory of cognitive dissonance describes the unease which comes when reality conflicts with our beliefs, and how we often go to extreme lengths try to ignore or distort evidence, so that we can maintain our beliefs. We try to deal with cognitive dissonance created by global warming by ignoring it completely or attributing it to a conspiracy.”
