"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

Mobocracy: America's Undoing?

The current disgusting state of "infotainment" style, reality show, "direct democracy" is befitting only for half besotted rubes. However, unfortunately, this snake charmer, geek show style of presidential politics currently befouling us is nothing new to the United States. It is the reason that Benjamin Franklin purportedly and provocatively told the anonymous importunate lady "We have given you a Republic if you can keep it."

Symptomatic is the spectacle of the same Jefferson who could write that all men are created equal, yet years later after leaving the White House schemed to institute a manufacturing slave economy in America while attempting to prove when challenged that Benjamin Banneker was of an inferior "race."

The ugly American syndrome resonates not only in our bellicose and cringe-worthy neocon "think tank" foreign policy "establishment elites" but pervades "virtually" every nook and cranny of this our winter of derangement. Without the creation of "do as thou wilt" "modern art" by the MI6/CIA Congress for Cultural Freedom could we have had the excrescence known as the "counter culture?"

It is the P.T. Barnum, Hollywood mobocracy theater of the absurd, psychological  infanticide post industrial gambling casino rot that ails us...
