Yeah I saw that this morning. I got a warm cuddy feeling that if we continue in the right path with young people...all this stupid "isms" designed to break down humanity and plunge us back in primitive times or keep us there will FINALLY be eradicated one day soon. Google honoring MLK is the first sign and a GREAT one. But!

Order and control will always exist and always be "oppressive" It just a matter of whose order and control. People that have these pipe dreams of freedom and being able to do whatever you want and all this Utopian crap kill me.

Totalitarian governments/regimes are no more than Slavery packaged as "law and order" or "protecting the people", just like that of Kim Jong Un, Hitler, and the Taliban.

There is a difference between "Totalitarian" state and Socialism. Stop and Frisk did not deter any crime, New York just controlled what and how much crime would be reported by the media.

I came from radio and newspapers and can go back to radio and reading those little strips called newspapers, if push comes to shove.
