“Most of the World is Just Collapsing in Laughter”

My friends, if you have to take a side, choose humanity. Otherwise you’re probably being played the chump. From Chomsky, for those still able to communicate beyond 140 characters…

“Here’s what it says basically: It says we have to maintain the right of first strike, the right of the first use of nuclear weapons, even against nonnuclear powers….In other words, when people know we are ready to use nuclear weapons, they’re going to back off if we do something aggressive. So basically, nuclear weapons are always being used.….Then, it goes on to say that we must present a national persona of being irrational and vindictive, because that’s going to terrify people. And then, they’ll back off. And this is not Trump, this is Clinton…We have to be irrational and vindictive, because that’s going to frighten people….We have to be irrational and vindictive, so people don’t know what we’re up to. This is not Trump and Bannon, it’s from the Clinton era.
