I believe I write to convey valuable information on things I have learned to others. To me, it just makes sense to pass the things I have learned, or information about the things which have befallen me to others, a bit like placing fluorescent road signs around a pothole in the road which damaged my car's axle. There is a phenomenon which is occurring of which you should be aware. In this era, with computers, accessible television on phones, phones which can access the weather, and buy food for delivery all at once, rather than average people becoming more informed concerning the happenings in the world, they have become less informed. The sad irony of this is that these wonderful gifts of access which have come with the internet have caused many people to think and create less, actually read less, obsess about internet games, or simply twitter like fools in grade school to one another.
This has very negative fallout for our nation, and possible for the entire world. A number of television programs in the US have interviewed workers, and found than many of them don't know the name of the Vice President. They don't know who the Speaker of the House is. They have no idea how our US governmental systems work, and they don't care.
I am not a political person, and I never have been, but two cases recently have occurred in which a systematic attempt at intimidation have occurred. Ordinary people need to develop some outrage at these cases. Our rights to criticize and complain about specific actions in local or federal government are at risk.
One such case is the matter of Brandon Raub :
These are my prior posts from one of my other blogs on this matter:
The other important case is the matter of Eileen Hart :
These are my posts which concern the Hart case:
