Plato’s Pow Wow – “I Read The News Today, Oh Boy”

Lol Danaa, that's a fantastic analogy.

Nothing "colorful", Sean. I was like 10 years of age and they were like late teens and up - we went to the same beach club and I'd pull up a deck chair and hang out with them and their sister Lennie too - did that for a few years in a row - also went to their house for 4th July barbecues a few years in a row. We all left Beirut in 1975 around the same time, just before the civil war there started. I've bumped into them here and there since. Last time I ran into one of them, it was Ian Copeland (R.I.P) back in 2000 in a bar in Beverly Hills.

Good to have you back, Rudy. So does it seem the world is better or worse after a ten day break from the news?

Obama's White House is too polite to pile on. They can already see the intellectual humiliation that Bibi is suffering from with his kook statement. Another zionist he-said-she-said nonsense - I'm sure that's what Kerry is thinking.

Curiosity killed the cat and satisfaction brought it back.

No, not the Police. I knew the Copelands when we all lived in Beirut as kids back in the 70's - years before the Police was formed. Expat kids hung out together back in the day. The names don't really matter, Sean.

When I was a young teen I used to enjoy reading short stories by Gogol, Guy de Maupassant and Oscar Wilde. I read their stories over and over and over. When I was in my late teens, for a few years I read nothing but Rimbaud, Shelley, Baudelaire and Hart Crane. Over and over and over. I mounted all their books on small planks of wood and hung them on my bedroom walls. I didn't have a clique of school friends my age or anything like that - I had two close friends and they both happened to be famous rock stars whom I met separately - they were both a few years older than me and music and literature was our connection - they were serious songwriters looking for concepts and inspiration. During my college years, I spent my week studying and doing sports every day and I spent my weekends either reading books or going to concerts or to music rehearsals with my friends. I didn't really hang out with anyone from my college. My parents were concerned that I wasn't doing enough 'normal' stuff and I would ask "like what?" and they would shrug shoulders and say "How should I know? That's for you to figure out". When I was in my early twenties they sat me down to discuss my "lack of focus and direction in life" and proposed that I should, well, be a writer. Despite my utter passion and worship of writers and their work, I couldn't think of a more cave-like existence and rejected the idea. Here I am now three decades later writing a regular blog and having a cave-like existence. And I still haven't yet resolved the issue of my lack of focus and direction in life. Hold the Freud though, eureka could strike me down tomorrow. And if it doesn't? Oh well, that's what you might call another wasted life. And what difference does it make anyway? Why should I shed tears over my life-long lack of ambitions? I feel liberated to have no goals to achieve and no one to impress. I feel positively brilliant for it. Turns out that my lack of need for validation is my personal standard of normal.

Thank you, jonathan. I've actually seen some of your VT links before. I think the advent of the internet and the vast freeflow of information has set back the "khazarian" project - this has made them turn to using more vicious methods indeed. But like I say in my article, we are, as regards global geopolitics and the strategies of empire, in an "unknown" sphere presently. The new line-ups and the new boundaries, both geographical and behavioral are slowly emerging into view. Nothing is crystal clear though yet.

Thank you GodSEnd. Nice tone of story. I personally don't understand 'belief'. And you do plenty. This is were we part ways. But remain friends, I hope. If you go to the 'Pow Wow' article, posted up today on the homepage, you can start a religious conversation there with Walid. That thread is like an open mic night - anyone can talk about anything they fancy.

Sorry Walid, and I don't want this thread to be about religion, but there is actually not a single piece of archaeological or otherwise evidence that confirms either the existence of Jesus, Moses or Abraham. Only the existence of the islamic prophet Mohammad can be proved. Just saying.

You're absolutely right in your assessment, ilya. But the days of grand armies directly facing each other in battle are over. Proxy wars are the wars of the 21st century.

Oh he was real alright - but that doesn't mean he was right about everything - like for instance believing in the 'chosen people' and all that. I mean he was right to absorb some of the meaningful messages of the religious myths of the time, but not to legitimize them as reality. In a sense, as far as factual history is concerned, Muhammad is the only Semitic prophet that existed. But yes, best take the god discussion to the Pow Wow thread. Thank you.
