Poor East Cleveland. What can be done about this? A lot of poor, discarded, messed-up people in crumbling old buildings. What can be done?

Want to fight the slide Yuri Bezhmenov (now) famously described? You should. Well, teach your children the Constitution, the Federalist, the Bible, wholesome edifying classics, etc. Help them understand true virtue.

Tell me: what are all the ways you can think of that the Establishment—the politicians, power-brokers, thought leaders, etc., in good standing with the media—evidently do *not* have the welfare of the people at heart?

The Atlantic says Wikipedia is “the simplest, most succinct summary of the current state of knowledge on almost any subject you can imagine.” Well, yes. It is the voice of the Establishment. No wonder the Atlantic touts it.

Look. You can’t expect to be taken seriously by independent-minded people, if you assert that certain positions on disputed questions are merely “misinformation” and a “problem” to be “controlled.”

We live in a democracy. We are used to *debating things*, especially when claims are used to remove our civil liberties. The Atlantic should know this, but they’re part of the massive *media* problem we all have.

We need to know their real, operational definition of “extremist,” etc. Is Covid skepticism extremism? Supporting Trump? Skepticism about the 2020 elections?
