Revolution is sociopathic and all should be condemned, including the American one http://gondwanaland.com/mlog/2015/07/04/no-peace-no-justice/ #july4
Revolution is an invitation to trolls, subjects non-combatants to depredation, is usually crushed and otherwise usually produces another tyranny, and abets impoverishing cycles of conflict. No revolution should be celebrated, including one producing a long-lived and relatively non-tyrannical (in ...

Last year I decried sad and tacky memorials for gang members and advised to take the advice of lower status memorials (street gang rather than military gang) and “stop violence” before robots take it over. This year I'm embracing the future. Below, a heroic predator defending the freedom of U.S. ...

Jackson Removal Act http://gondwanaland.com/mlog/2015/05/13/jackson-removal-act/  #WomenOn20s is a start, all other memorializations of all other slaveholders must go too
I just learned of and support a campaign called Women on 20s to put the face of a woman on the US$20 bill. The campaign is in the news today because it announced the winner of a poll to select an individual: Harriet Tubman won. Why the US$20 bill, that is, why remove Andrew Jackson: ...
