Do not mistake racism for social grieves from social gaps. This is the sort of mistake that led to BREXIT. Exciting times ahead, a little mountain to climb, but we need to understand that mountain, alas, we will slip down, and down............... It is a digital society, the system can no longer learn faster than the players (Universes of discourses).

Have you ever taken a break from a relationship only to return with some boundaries? Well, this is BREXIT, the only issue is that we are not designing any boundaries - we are just repeating the same old stories.

Hear the 14-Hour “Essential Edgar Allan Poe” Playlist: “The Raven,” “The Tell-Tale Heart” & Much More
Edgar Allan Poe: anyone with an interest in scary stories---and not just scary, but deeply, whole-other-level scary stories---quickly learns the name. Presumably they also learn the proper spelling of the name: 'Allan' with two As, not 'Allen' with an E.
