Here’s my prediction for 2017. It’s the safest prediction I could make beyond the sun coming up in the morning. It’s aimed right at the people who run news organizations. You won’t fix this. Any of this.I bumped into the article again just now, and nothing has changed. The one simple truth is still the one simple truth. But: One of the pluponents got slapped silly by actual factual truth.
There will be a libel suit against pro-Trump online trolls who spread lies about a person or business, and it’ll test the laws governing online speech.Hmm. Would that be the libel suit against CNN? Funny, I didn't quite get the impression that CNN was a pro-Trump online troll. But then I'm not a pluponent. Maybe from the pluponent view CNN is pro-Trump because it only ORDERED people to assassinate Trump and didn't go ahead and assassinate him 500 quadrillion times and more and more and more.
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.
