IF YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM, YOU CANNOT BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

It is not necessarily true that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

But it is certainly true that if you are part of the problem, you cannot be part of the solution.

So if you are part of the mass addiction to mobile devices (cellphones, iPhones, and smartphones), you cannot be part of the solution to the problem of the mass addiction to mobile devices.

And if you are part of the mass dependence on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn, et al.), you cannot be part of the solution to the problem of the mass dependence on social media.

And if you are part of the mass devotion to political parties and factions (Democratic, Republican, et al.), you cannot be part of the solution to the problem of the mass devotion to political parties and factions.

If you are part of the problem, you cannot be part of the solution.

DON’T BLAME ME, I VOTED FOR NEITHER

Well, I guess I owe an apology to those who voted for Donald Trump in the Republican primaries–he could defeat Hillary Clinton.

And I can proudly state that I voted for neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump–in fact, I cast a write-in vote for an unknown independent presidential candidate named Scott W. Mayo.

Donald Trump cannot serve as President of the United States for four years without starting a global thermonuclear war–directly or indirectly. Mike Pence can. Therefore, it is imperative that Congress come up with a reason to impeach President Trump, and remove him from office–as soon as possible after he takes office–so that Vice President Mike Pence can take his place.

I have already contacted Senator Marco Rubio (for whom I did not vote) and Congressman Matt Gaetz (for whom I did vote)–urging each to vote for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and his removal from office, as soon as the opportunity arises.

And if you want to keep from going up in radioactive smoke, I highly suggest that you contact your senator and congressman/congresswoman with the same appeal.

Maybe this victory for Donald Trump is just the kick-in-the-ass that Digital-Age Americans need to convince them that they are indeed personally responsible for their government–at the federal, state, and local levels.

Maybe this is a wake-up call for you–if you are a citizen of the United States of America–to do three things:

Abandon the political party that has betrayed your trust–Democratic or Republican–and change your voting status to Independent.

Get rid of your Digital-Age pacifier (your cellphone, iPhone, or smartphone)–and get a landline phone.

Close your Facebook and/or Twitter account–and start a blog if you want to get your message across.

And don’t blame me, I voted for neither.

NO TRUTH, NO JUSTICE

Truth and justice are both important.

But though we can have truth without justice, we cannot have justice without truth.

Because all injustice is a product of falsehood–misinformation, misunderstanding, misrepresentation, lies, half-truths, unsubstantiated rumors, deception, deceit, dishonesty, rash assumptions, rash conclusions, rash judgments, manipulation of facts, disguising opinions as facts, interpolation, censorship, ignorance.

So as important as justice is, truth is arguably more important.

Because we cannot have justice without truth.

Truth.

Truth, no matter how much it hurts.

Truth, no matter whom it hurts–even ourselves.

Truth, no matter what.

Truth at all costs.

NO TRUTH, NO JUSTICE.

PEER PRESSURE AT ITS WORST

I’m the only blogger I know who constantly condemns the Digital Age–using Digital-Age technology to condemn Digital-Age technology.

I especially condemn the mass addiction to mobile devices and social media.

In subjugated societies, like that of Occupied Palestine, mobile devices and social media give oppressed people a way to show the rest of the world just how oppressive their occupying governments are.

But in free societies, like that of the United States (arguably the freest society in the world), mobile devices and social media make the people oblivious to everything and everyone around them–and condition the people to simply feel, rather than think, and simply react, rather than act.

This entire presidential campaign is being driven by social media.

Most Republican voters who voted for Donald Trump in the primaries chose him not because of what he said, but because of what was said about him on social media.

Most Democratic voters who voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries chose her not because of what she said, but because of what was said about her on social media.

This is peer pressure at its worst. ┬áBut it’s not just kids giving into peer pressure anymore–it’s Americans of all ages.

The American people are destroying their own country with their ignorance, apathy, and complacency–and their primary weapons for their own country’s self-destruction are their mobile devices and their social media accounts.
