“If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber! Why do you (NFL) think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics?” – From an unsigned email, authorship unknown – August 7th, 2020.

“Some people will have more ability, more relevant merit, than other people do. When the law treats all persons equally, their life outcomes, their degrees of success, are always unequal. When outcomes are equalized, it always means that the law is unjust, favoring some people above others.” – David Sims, “Two ways only: The stars – or the slime” – National Vanguard, August 12th, 2020.

“A major survey of 30,000 people around the world found that nearly half believed climate change would make humanity extinct. Mental-health professionals now routinely find themselves addressing adolescent anxiety over climate. In January, pollsters found that one in five UK children reported having nightmares about it.” – Michael Shellenberger, “Climate-change hysteria costs lives – but activists want to keep panic alive” – New York Post, July 21st, 2020.

“It’s always important to keep in mind that the ‘attack’ (Trump) on Beirut’s port destroyed Lebanon’s main grain silo, apart from engineering the total destruction of the port – the nation’s key trade lifeline… That would fit into a strategy of starving Lebanon. On the same day Lebanon became to a great extent dependent on Syria for food – as it now carries only a month’s supply of wheat – the US attacked silos in Syria… Syria is a huge exporter of organic wheat. And that’s why the US routinely targets Syrian silos and burns its crops – attempting also to starve Syria and force Damascus, already under harsh sanctions, to spend badly needed funds to buy food.” – Pepe Escobar, “Who profits from the Beirut blast?” – Unz Review, August 7th, 2020.

“If it were impossible for us to make a difference, the non-stop propaganda and oppression would not be needed… So instead of protesting the masks, let me make a different suggestion: join us. Go to your job and put on the face they expect. Mouth the platitutes that are required to keep peace with the inlaws. But in the evening, work with us. Start a small business, sell and buy in our parallel economy. Write an article. Learn the one million things you can do, risk free, that if we can multiply, will bring down the Apostles of Epic Evil… You’re protesting the mask because your protest on that issue is allowed. But we both know it’s a proxy. Join us and engage in meaningful action on the real issues.” – John Young, “The mask as proxy for oppression” – Western Voices World News, August 10th, 2020.
