In Formation?

“[What information consumes is] the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.” This quote is attributed to Herbert Simon, a 1978 Nobel winner in economics. I saw it recently and my mind starting wandering… The quote seems to be a clever comment about the overabundance of information (much […]

A Scar On The Land And In Our Hearts

A Scar On The Land & In Our Hearts Obviously, everyone is aware of the “war” going on in North Dakota in recent months. Dakota Access is building a pipeline from North Dakota to Illinois to extract crude oil from the Bakken and Three Forks shale formations. This project was started by despicable Capitalists who […]

However, when the CIA […]

A Voice In The Wilderness

The American Dream is an illusion. It’s a creative illusion, but an illusion nontheless. The concept of “American exceptionalism” is about as sane as walking naked through Alaska with a small oil lamp in the middle of a tempest and expecting to stay warm. To believe in this pathetic illusion of American exceptionalism is to […]
