heart

nice post and thanks for sharing... may I share a quote I came accross, linked from my DP exploring yd:

"Whilst you and me have been drunkenly slurring in some seedy bar over who the Red Sox's best ever pitcher was, the agents of our destruction were slowly but surely drawing their plans against us (to paraphrase Wells). They have researched with exquisite detail all our foibles and failings. They are master manipulators par excellence. If we continue with our blind indifference to our approaching fate, then we'll have fully deserved it. Huxley's final conclusion in the lines quoted above is:

"There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown."

Think about that stark assessment for a moment. It's perfectly correct. Once they've finally got us, they've got us for keeps. Us, our children and our children's children's children. They'll have completely re-written history by then, if not already today. As a people, we won't know who we are any more. Do we even today? We'll be whatever THEY tell us we are. This revisionism - the only kind permitted it seems - has ALREADY been underway in the West for some time, as you may be aware. In due course we will become irreversibly enslaved by these criminals for all time to come. As Huxley states, it simply won't occur to our grandchildren to question their subservience..."

Time to ponder our aliens with a bit more heart, sincerity, courage, and urgency, I believe... for we are running out of time to communicate in this way

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
