EDITORIAL:         Politicized Racism and Reality

                                 Christian white people provided the world its industrial revolution; their descendants added the digital tech that is changing everything. Now, politicians want descendants of those white people repressed and punished because the process and its’ repercussions has not been conducted in the manner that said politicians now approve.

                In that vein, should not said politicians be punished because their predecessors did not mandate the currently demanded process?                 Of course, that is ridiculous, but no more so than black reparations, white privilege, mandatory critical race theory indoctrination or any other ex post facto racism directed against the authors of modernity while ignoring the generally more severe racist attitudes prevalent in the rest of the world.

    Defining a woman as the opposite of the male leads logically to what is the definition of the male. Has the new Orwell dictionary altered their definition of male accordingly? If so how can any sex be the opposite of the other if by definition those characteristics which define each sex can equally belong to its “opposite”. While of course asserting they have an identity which by their own reasoning they have defined as not existing.
    Have I got that clear or am I confused?

    Yellowstone’s super caldera is rumbling. Perhaps nature is getting sick of us?
