Even if Guccifer is an actual agent of Putin, doesn't the disclosure of the truth about how our leaders actually operate serve the greater interests of democracy? Doesn't the criminalization of the disclosure of the truth about how our leaders actually operate oppose the greater interests of democracy?

Yes, Trump is the greater of the evils, by far, but the greatest of the evils is allowing your hatred of Trump to blind you into supporting even further criminalization of the disclosure of the truth. The greater battle is the battle of whistleblowers of all stripes vs. corrupt oligarchs of all stripes. How is it that corporate media has managed to turn so many otherwise well-meaning Democrats against their most cherished overriding principles over just two short years of conditioning?

The spectacle of American Dream citing board rules after his behaviour on these Alavarez threads is really beyond the pale. You can stop anytime now, dude, and quit playing toy admin. It's not only boring as hell, its just a tiny bit nauseating.


From the following thread:

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25288&start=120

10 yrs ago.

AD's behavior in that thread is quite telling, and disturbing, given his M.O. throughout his 'tenure' here. And yet he's permitted to persist.

I encourage all to check out that thread and come to your own conclusions.

"Galvanizing" 'em like a frog's severed legs wired to a battery. As soon as the media switch off the juice (maybe after a JFK-in-Dallas moment or some other "constitutional crisis"), I think most of that "opposition" will subside into happy inertia once again, and then it'll be back to business-as-usual, capitalism-as-usual, empire-as-usual. planetary-collapse-as-usual. And you'll be a "conspiracy theorist" or a Debbie Downer if you see anything wrong with any of it.

Techtonic guns seem like, overkill, beside the power to do all that.
