2. I got a kick out of the game show, TV ads, musical schticks that mock anti-semitic banality

and mindlessness.

3. Yes, that was pretty amazing. You know, I often visit You Tube

to rock out on old Zep etc., and I watched a video about the Holocaust. It is amazing how many people go on there and post doubt and denial.

Very few people are still alive who experienced it. Do we forget so easily? Why so much hatred toward Jews? Toward Muslims? People of color? Women? GLBTQ people?

I have a good friend who is a local government elected official. She's Jewish, and many of her family were killed in Poland during the Holocaust. She's terrified of the Republicans right now.

To hate a whole group of people that much is so wrong, such a misuse of our life force, and to act on that hatred like many are now? That is quite alarming.

But hey, hundreds of thousands of us may die from this coronavirus that Trump has so mishandled. Like the Spanish Flu at the end of WWI. That killed something like 18 million worldwide - as many or more than the war killed.

Our species really isn't doing very well at the moment, is it?

4. Worse now than we're capable of. 1918 didn't get figured out until years later.

Science in 1918 was just discovering microbes in water, nevermind in humans.

Those who want to control the future lie about the past. Those who want to control the future will shut the learning doors behind them, defund the means by which 'the masses' can obtain information. Whether it's futures trading or science, or systems to improve our freedoms, health and welfare, the powerful will never give you the means to know how to be like them. When it comes down to history, they actually never have.

Information is the new currency. Currency is power. So banks are still the powerful. If the sins of power in the past are not known, no one can know when they ambush humans again. It can be through LIHOP or MIHOP (Let It Happen Operation, or Make It Happen Operations), next it's who/what they'll point to as 'the enemy over there!' What's more profitable than humans and the theater of suffering. War, selling children; work, slave, sex, and orphan trafficking Sell and resell. Multiple trades until you literally 'use up' the commodity. Or gouge humans who need help in the enlarging "natural" disaster capitalism world.

We not supposed to get better, by design. We're supposed to forget what others before us learned. Then be surprised, or despairing, when it happens again.

5. Binged it as well.

Didn't like the ending, but otherwise an oft-surprising narrative.

6. It showed how people escape responsibility for stealth evils they do. Then they stealth move on,

leaving everyone else to figure out the truth of "mysterious events" by hook or by crook. Later they claim those events never really happened. The intellectual gaslighting of the masses. Women know.

Did Americans know about Operation Paperclip? Did Europeans learn of the rat trails allowing Nazis to hide among them? The Swiss banks that profited from the Holocaust? We knew through the only way we have ever found out the truth about their evil, selfish actions -- too late to act proactively, too late to use The Law to stop them from doing it again. The prison murder of the Jewish lawyer at the end is how they attract the fearful ignorant to join in mob-like death dealing power.

The hoarders hide everything and lie.

The accusation of "paranoia" is gaslighting, when those accused know someone IS out to get them/us.

Which is one major reason the young are listening to Bernie.
