I was halfway writing about how fury is now the opium of the masses, but then I changed my mind and discarded the piece because I felt that I’m just repeating what myself and others have been saying for a good six months – albeit, I may use more acrobatic prose than what the norm is in news media. Fact is, I am not a journalist and I do not wish to be one or to write like one. This, my natural lack of interest in the practice of journalism is actually the topic and purpose behind this personal article.
When I started Plato’s, it was really for four reasons. First, to be able to share through Plato’s daily Newsstand some selected articles of worth that would educate and further enlighten the reader. Second, to allow commenters their freedom of expression when blogging, so long as they were not rude, crude or derailing. Thirdly, to share with readers my insights and analysis of American Empire and its geopolitical shenanigans in the Middle East. Fourthly, and dearest to my heart, is to give uber support to the liberation of our congress and of Palestine, whom as we all know are symbiotically connected by both being under the criminal occupation of the Zionist invaders.
