Get Over It
I’m giving it a day, maybe three, before “get over it, you lost” begins to show up in our feeds. Not this year or next you dumb ass Marks.
Yes, Marks. The targets of a con job. In this instance, a spectacular 40 year con with the end game of creating a legal basis for minority rule by a patriarchal aristocracy of wealthy sons of wealthy sons of wealthy sons. It is simply about money. It’s more than maintaining country club memberships and paying the upkeep and salaries for their super yachts, five homes and servants. They want their children and their children’s children to enjoy the same lifestyle in future dollars. Legacy is the term that comes to mind. They believe in and want to restore the old aristocracy, where bloodline is all that matters.
Anyone who thinks it’s about religion or race or gender or guns has fallen for the con. Both/all sides of those issues and all the other little wedges. All of us have fallen for the greatest con in history.
We are all Marks, but intelligent, nay, liberal thinking people have the sneaky ability to learn from our mistakes. We learn from history. We actually admit, address and learn from our failures. Entrepreneurs call this “failing up”.
Smart business people also don’t ignore new technologies or paradigms that are coming to destroy decades or centuries old business models. The truly smart ones embrace the new and sometimes even become that which destroys their old model.
So no. I won’t get over it any time soon. I intend to learn from failure, tear down the old and build a better product.
America was never great. The America we know would not exist without slavery and genocide. Your wonderfully free America, the America that’s been really good to my family, that America has always been a con. And America has failed.
The “Great Experiment” is a failure that needs to be torn down and rebuilt with a better model. Completely, utterly from the ground up.
I won’t get over it. I’m going to change it.
