It is good to know my stubborn consistent claim (i.e. the only phone I need is the one connected to a land line) is better for the biosphere than buying a "smart" ::) phone. Gandhi said the following:


My wife and I have always done our best to do that. I am sure that is sine qua non to our happiness in the afterlife. It gives us peace of mind. However, due to the massive wave of selfishness and greed enveloping our species in these times, that has not done SQUAT to make the world a cleaner, safer, better place.

For a time I thought it would. I was wrong. But, that takes nothing away from the validity of Gandhi's words. There is no hope for human civilization as long as people are more concerned with this life than they are with being a success in the afterlife. WHY? Because, as long everything a person DOES is predicated on the probability of a successful outcome in this plane of existence, the only logical behavior is cowardly self interest (i.e. "Might equals Right").   

I am past three score and ten. I can tell you that I have had to interact carefully, just to survive, with American Fascists since I was a kid in Kansas. While it is true that most of them branded themselves using other labels (Southerners, Republicans, John Birchers, Libertarians, Capitalists, Supply Siders, Trickle Down "Theory" Proponents, Moral Majority, "Christians" - in name only, Reagan Democrats, etc.), their joy in finding new and "better" ways to single out anyone that wasn't part of the "in crowd" for gratuitous mocking, micro-aggressions, ostracism, orchestrated penury through preventing the hiring of to good jobs, trumped up charges resulting in firing from good jobs, and/or in-your-face cruelty identifies them.

While they are not quite the majority in the USA, they are a significant percentage of the population. They are MOSTLY NOT, as many left leaning people with big hearts claim, confused, uneducated, ignorantly racist or unenlightened; they know exactly what they are doing and why they are doing it. Evidence of that is their consistent good neighborly care and consideration for those who they consider part of the "in crowd".

They are simply evil, which is another word for coward. Scratch a bully, and just below the surface you'll find a coward.

The American Empire may be in retreat, but EVIL among humans in America (and the rest of the world) is on the march, not retreating.
