Breaking Points

In my life I've been very, very fortunate. I've gotten to points at which I thought I would NEVER make it past without severe damage to my mind and body.

These points may seem trivial to some, but they're an examination of how hard you have to fight at least on a personal level, to make it past those events that you have considered nightmare scenarios. There will be a point afterwords, I promise.

Beyond all the bullshit about the election hacking, the plutarchy's duopoly and whatever else the Ministry of Truth tells people to talk about on a daily basis, the New American Century continues. Seemingly lost in all the talk about Trump and Clinton, as usual, is the fact that Serfs will be Serfs, Rulers will be Rulers and the Empire will march on.
