My unplanned theme for the week is that this is all empty and we mostly should ignore it, and here we go again.
This empty noise is all over social media and the “news,” and no. I keep thinking about Nicolae Ceaușescu’s last speech, when the crowd turned on him.
I’m thinking about this example because of these people:
Even near the literally bloody end, he had apparatchiks chanting and clapping for him in the front row. These people always appear in corrupt and hollow systems, and so what?
We have hollow and illegitimate political and media systems. For the moment, I have nothing further, except to say that you should ignore the spin and the alleged “reporting,” and just read the special counsel’s report yourself.
