The Ideology of Isolation
"But if you forget what you derive from the collective, you can imagine that you owe it nothing and can go it alone.
.........
There is, of course, such a thing as society, and you’re inside it. Beyond that, beneath it and above and around and within it and us, there is such a thing as ecology.....
........
Absolute freedom means you can have any truth that you like....."
If you boil the strange soup of contemporary right-wing ideology down to a sort of bouillon cube, you find the idea that things are not connected to other

A terrible drought hit Ghana in the 1400s, far worse than today's conditions. Yet people had enough to eat, while today they go hungry. What changed? In a word, colonialism, a new study suggests.

In the east of the island near the town of Baracoa, the Yumari River empties into the Atlantic. These B&W images of Cuba show life there in May 2016.

From Hermann Goering, a leader of the Nazi Party:
“. . . . . it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
It’s time we stop being polite about what is going on. It’s time we stop sending out the funny memes and making cheap comparisons. It’s time we stop dancing around what is truly, frighteningly, happening in this country. We can no longer deny that...
