Shalisha Israel, 68, had been harassing the family for several weeks based on their race and nationality. They called 911 because Israel was banging on their door and kicking their cars in the parking lot yelling racist remarks, according to court records. Court records said they believe she was preventing them from going to their cars and she was upset about their driving and national origin. ... Cell phone video was taken of Israel yelling things like, “You guys drug dealers or something,” and “I think you might be terrorists! This is not your America! You are evil!”Reading between the poorly written lines, I get the sense that this lady is an all-around yeller and shouter, but in this case she picked the wrong target. She picked Current Enemy = Protected Class. The government and media boil us into a froth of hatred against Current Enemy. They tell us to watch for Terrorist Sabotage by Current Enemy. They tell us "See something, say something." And when we actually do say something, the government and media punish us for terrorism against Protected Class. I don't know if there's a proper name for this technique. It's not quite the same thing as Comrade O'Brien's Room 101, which destroys our contact with facts. This method is meant to obliterate our sense of justice. Most people naturally WANT to help the government fight crime and sabotage. When the government turns us into criminals for expressing this desire, we lose the will to fight anything. Of course that's the real purpose. Efficient self-slaughter of Deplorables. Genocide by LBO. The other end of this technique is more directly deadly. The government is directly killing Current Enemy by the millions in other countries, punishing Current Enemy for the crime of being defined as Current Enemy. When Current Enemy gets annoyed at the injustice of being attacked for no proper reason, Current Enemy goes to Europe and tries to fight back. In that situation Current Enemy = Protected Class, and the Euro Deplorables are punished when they complain about being raped and murdered by Protected Class. Elegant symmetry of evil. = = = = = Continued in next item.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
