Insanity

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always [...]

Civil War?

Note from a friend and student: “I just read your recent blog…How close do you think we are to a civil war?” We’re already in a civil war. The real question is: When will it go hot and how far will it spread? My answer is: I don’t know. My instincts are telling me to [...]

Tick-Tock
