What is Fascism? Is it just another word for nothing left to lose? Did the CIA poison Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison and brutally murder JFK and Martin Luther King? The NSA then? The Cosa Nostra? A deranged alchemist and a lone gunman with a sordid sex life?

Does complicit equal illicit or just mask conspiracy? Does the rule of law bring peace and prosperity to the disenfranchised? Who does the franchising to begin with? What’s the price of the buy-in?

Do you see what I’m getting at? Do you want to go there? Why does the king have a new set of clothes while the lone wolf goes naked?

Where did the line get crossed where learning became conditioning, no exception, starting with conception? Is it really that bad? Do you think I’ve gone overboard? Will you throw me a life line? Drag me through the wake of it all until my lungs fill with small white lies?

Why has everything profound been leeched dry? What sucked the life blood out of Joseph Campbell, Buckminster Fuller, Bill Moyers, the Dali Lama and James Dean?
