THE TRUTH THE DEAD KNOW Gone, I say and walk from church, refusing the stiff procession to the grave, letting the dead ride alone in the hearse. It is June. I am tired of being brave. We drive to the Cape. I cultivate myself where the sun gutters from the sky, where the sea swings in like an iron gate and we touch. In another country people die. My darling, the wind falls in like stones from the whitehearted water and when we touch we enter touch entirely. No one’s alone. Men kill for this, or for as much. And what of the dead? They lie without shoes in their stone boats. They are more like stone than the sea would be if it stopped. They refuse to be blessed, throat, eye and knucklebone. -- Anne Sexton #annesexton #poetry #suicide #death #sex

https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/how-can-these-two-trends-coexist ZeroHedge has been big on Russian and CCP propaganda recently. It is cool that they publish diverse views but a lot of them are simply dumb. "Since the gap between haves and have-nots was already a chasm before the pandemic, this sudden widening will be a potential flashpoint going forward. Put another way, the aristocracy had better make things right with the peasants before the latter storm the castle." There is a point here. The Billionaires (generally) suck. They are (generally) parasites. But the peasants are a mixed bag. I am all for people working hard to build a good life for themselves. But a lot of the peasants richly deserve to be peasants, so in the end: F*CK THEM! Nobody has a right to live out of my wallet. #inequity #billionaires #peasants #propaganda #selfreliance

https://www.zerohedge.com/crypto/chinas-digital-yuan-comes-expiration-date The scariest thing about China and its digital yuan -- and there are many scary things -- is how much China's aims are in common with the West. I think the Elite is falling in love with the idea of a centrally planned economy like China's, where they can insure that they will always profit and that any loses are borne by the middle and lower classes. China's digital currency is a totalitarian wet dream, where your money is never yours. They can track it, the can block it, they can expire it, they can prevent it from leaving the country. #digitalyuan #crypto #china #theelite #totalitarianism
