Constants and Variables 168, Lowenstein edition
Since I just bashed Unz, let's balance it with praise for ONE of the columnists. Barrett appears (at the moment anyway) to be a relatively true beacon. He hasn't showed the Pied Piper colors YET.
His latest audio clip is an interview
with a pair of high-status hippies, Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould. Unlike most high-status hippies,
Paul and Elizabeth didn't join Deepstate. They continued working on the side of truth.
They see more or less the same things I'm seeing, from a different angle. I see these monstrosities from a scientist/engineer temperament. Paul and Elizabeth (and Barrett as well) see the trends from a historian/journalist temperament.
The story starts with a point of intersection between the two angles, a 'controlled experiment' that shows the distinction between high-status and low-status hippies. The constant in the experiment is Allard Lowenstein.
met Allard Lowenstein while involved in the 1980 Teddy Kennedy campaign. Lowenstein recognized him as a distant relative of the Kennedys, and confided in him that the truth about the assassinations
would eventually come out. (Of course it hasn't yet.)
I met Lowenstein in Jamestown NY while I was campaigning for Gene McCarthy in 1968. A group of Bobby Kennedy campaigners was also working in Jamestown. Lowenstein gathered up both crews and gave us a pep talk. So I got a handshake from Lowenstein.
High status vs low-status.
Paul and Elizabeth discuss four important themes at length in the interview.
1. The Fairness Doctrine WORKED,
and we need to bring it back.
2. Medieval mode.
We're back in 1300.
3. Endless wars
and staged "threats".
4. Psychopaths are in charge, and psychopaths have a burning need to OBLITERATE EVERYTHING.
Each demon wants to be the SOLE OCCUPANT OF THE UNIVERSE.
In each case, Paul and Elizabeth treat these subjects from a historical and theological angle, while I treat them from neurology and the predestined course of the universe. Both angles are needed for a complete picture.
