All the more reason to think that politics

is the main control behind the influx of accusations at this point in time and not spead over less political seasons. We have multiple solid accusations against Moore and other GOP polititians, we have some strong and some weak accusations against Hollywood stars and elites, and we have a flurry of unsubstantiated accusations that originate from the rw in too timely a manner to be coincidence.

But what about Trump? Power. That's all. It makes me wonder whether the office of the presidency is now a danger to democracy at this point in history. It's too powerful, or should I say too controllable. Parliamentary system? Look to Scandinavia Maybe? Iceland?

The president, congress and oligarchs must be accountable. The paid rw media must be made accountable. Only then can we heal these issues that have dogged us for generations.

I think our brains have perceptions and recall

that we underestimate too many times. It's an amazing bit of evolution with survival, memory, emotion, sensation, calculation and imagination all interwoven like a hologram. Our ability to recall sensations and reconstitute them as visual or audible experiences kind of covers the spiritual and ghostly feelings for me.

My most beloved dog still seemed with me and around me for months after he died but I always knew it was the sensations and memories and my expectations of him being there that I was remembering. For six months after my dad died he appeard in my dreams every night. We would talk, I'd ask questions which he answered, make jokes... after a few months, he was still there but never looked at me, then he'd be there but we didn't communicate and finally one night I saw him with glowing eyes, he walked through a door and never returned to my dreams. I know it was my minds way of dealing with deep grief and loss through memories of his personality, form and sound.

I don't belittle the fact that people see and hear things of loved ones, they are as real as if they really were there. I just think it's our vast mind doing its job of survival and healing.

It makes the saying that "they continue to live in our hearts" a very real thing.

I think that there is a point where wealth

becomes meaningless. Their view of the world is so askew they don't see that everything is cancelling out. Maybe the acumulation of crimes against us all destroys a world order and democracy, but mass acumulation of wealth will do the same.
An article today said the king of Saudi Arabia just claimed three trillion dollars by arresting "his adversaries" I don't remember the wording. What the hell is three trillion dollars? It's a meaningless number. Billions is meaningless. It's power, control, the ability to make or break your surroundings. The numbers mean nothing.
Where is our wealth? I want peace, health and a furure for my children, and the knowledge that when I die they will go on. This is real. Their large numbers will eat them first then disappear in their fear of an unrelenting planet and it's inhabitants.

Where is the line where escapism becomes reality?

It is reality to me. The rest is a wall to tear down, it's where I work to make my insignificant difference in the world. Then I go home to what's real and the rest can go to hell.
