Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Pretty quiet here, in these parts as..
the dysfunctional-Country's temperature is sitting at Boil (that's 212º F.) In the cool parts.
New I had to get away.
I spent most of the week-end watching World Cup. But this morning I was remembering how I felt the end was nigh when Reagan was elected. 1984 was a very troubling year for me. By comparison, 1980-1988 were good days. I can't be the only person who sees direct parallels between what is happening here in America today and what happened in Germany in the 1930's.

  • Your socio-economic downfall is due to the Jews illegal immigrants.

  • We're taking you your children to the showers to be bathed.

  • The Enabling Act rings out in Trump's own claims that he "could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters" as well as Guiliani saying he could assassinate an FBI director and "you couldn't indict him."

  • The President and other administration workers constant use of Lügenpresse to describe the Fourth Estate.

  • Adulation of The Leader by his supporters.



This list goes on and on. I was and am very fortunate to count among my friends several German nationals. I grew up around people from all over the world and I could never reconcile the rise of the Third Reich with my own personal experiences with German people. These weren't the sorts of folk who would tolerate the things done by the National Socialist German Workers' Party. But it is happening again. Too many otherwise non-evil people are wrapping themselves in evil.

I was so wrong about people. I thought if we got this far (and I'll admit I vastly underestimated how far we'd go and how fast we'd get there) the government would fall at the hands of a people yearning to be free from tyranny. Those people apparently do not exist. I'm all the way back to the 22 year old version of myself's view that the American People are interested in two things and two things only: When can I next get something to eat? and When can I next have sex?

I don't think I've ever felt so bad about my countrymen nor the country I live in.

New Nit
The American People All people everywhere always are interested in two things and two things only: When can I next get something to eat? and When can I next have sex?

Fixed it for you.

No, of course it's not strictly true, but if you assume it is you'll be surprised/disappointed much less often than expecting "a people yearning to be free from tyranny".

New The McGuffin is: our Puritan roots.
From the crib these antediluvian koans are/[were?] inculcated, thus accomplishing the obvious: Get Laid-NOW-or-adequate substitute ... Try!! during most waking hours.. This info then stays in the Reptile brain and explains lots about the behavior of males Here. During my lifetime, anyway.

In Scandinavia the obsession-aspect rarely happens; sure: Hormones happen, but neither of the (now 2+n genders) is forced to a lie/cheat/steal mindset, while trying to mature. While there are Evil-creeps everywhere, the dis-US Puritan underlayment--its anxiety thus Sin-ƒeare pressures--are a US-perfected mind-fuck.
Even moi Noticed sufficiently-to-despise-the-hypocrisy ..at or near puberty; thus spared-self from the idiocy-parts, later. Maybe today, fewer parents do the drill to the same level of pure-BS, but..

Muricans traditionally suck about honestly-Facing: ... anything 'difficult'.
