Human history is essentially a civil war regarding the freedom of information, characterized traditionally as Jerusalem versus Athens. Jerusalem demands information fealty to a human arbiter who has deliberately been abstracted from existence; Athens requires information to be processed democratically. It is the "people of the book" versus the people of the books: the never-ending war by information privilege to control and limit the human library.
Information privilege has always gone to extraordinary lengths to destroy liberating information and punish its knowledge, so it is encouraging to see it in a liberating information environment, floundering crankily with its influence drastically reduced. It persists now almost entirely by institutional gaslight. Behold the bankrupt President Donkey Kong shake down the world to raise money for the "no alternative" Jerusalem citadel. Information privilege is determined, one way or another, to get the world to finance its subjugation.
Now, humankind can solve all of its maliciously distorted contentions and develop healthy, sustainable standards appropriate for life in an advanced democratic information civilization. It should go without saying that conflicts between people should not be opportunities to be exploited for profit, but information abuse institutionalizes the most foolish propositions. As long as we are represented politically, we will remain reduced to mere metaphors--bundles of sticks with limited agency.
Jerusalem creates and maintains divisions in humankind not only to conquer us, but also to camouflage its elected separateness. In a world of tribes, it can justify itself as one of many. (Of course, no other tribe has indelibly persistent designs on the rest of us.) Similarly, information privilege engenders the immoral environment it needs to operate. The world has been made tragically inferior in order to enable information privilege.
This contention began in the so-called Garden of Eden: to inform or not to inform the sapient fauna. We have come a long way in a relatively brief period of time, friends. Fortunately, the old Jentil gardener serpent believed in humankind enough to invest himself in our story.

In reference to the following dishonest neurotic harangue which was published recently in the Guardian: If you can't see antisemitism, it's time to open your eyes.
Perhaps Michael Segalov, tribe aficionado and news editor of Huck magazine, has never heard of a Roman nose, also known as an aquiline nose. He would have us believe that a street artist's tame depiction of humankind's contemporary Roman overlords is "antisemitism" equal to "full-blown Nazi," but presumably not the totalitarian criminal founders of the European Jewish state, such as the Irgun and the Stern Gang, which were actually enabled by the Nazis. Perhaps he doesn't know, as most informed people do, that actual Semites, such as the Palestinian people are "people of color" and as such, have little power in this world.
As for the blood libel accusations, read this sickening revelation from the Talmud, keeping in mind that a golem calf is a (presumably soulless) human baby, turned into dinner "by means of permuting language." Abracadabra.
The "powerless Jews" as "the canary in the coalmine?" If only it were possible for "His elect," the self-appointed owners and keepers of humankind, to feel ashamed for such stunning mendacity.
Of course, like his confederates in high places, Mr. Segalov prefers battling "light-hearted and funny" straw man "conspiracy theories" invented to ridicule their opponents.
By the way, this is not an endorsement of Jeremy Corbyn, who pledges to deliver "the new politics of hope" to his constituents. It should not have to be explained that in a representative democracy, public representatives are not supposed to be toadies tasked with delivering feelings. What people such as Corbyn and Bernie Sanders are actually offering is yet another runaround for the same old decaying game.
Yesterday, for Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day, it was reported widely that amid the resurgence of the far-right, people are forgetting the world's worst genocide. Beside the fact that the so-called resurgence remains a carefully maintained mirage, despite relentless Israeli encouragement, humankind will never forget what that hyper-privileged tribe did to itself, over a mountain of 70 million corpses, for Israel. And we will not forget what it continues to do for the rest of the pie, most noticeably in Syria, through its proxies in Western capitals and black operations militias such as ISIS alike.

This recipe makes 6 patties. The idea is to produce a simple, flavorful substrate that can be dressed in unlimited ways like a traditional burger. Adding egg and baking the mix produces plump yet light patties with enough structural integrity to fry or grill. The parmesan cheese mimics meat marbling in appearance and flavor.
The recipe is named in honor of Apollo for the supportive function of the eggs, and he was a chicken, the original cosmic chicken.
- 1 cup canned black beans (salted), rinsed and dried
- 1 cup Crimini mushrooms, chopped
- 1/2 cup black olives, chopped
- 1/4 cup unsalted pine nuts, ground
- 1 large clove of garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
- 2 eggs
Mixing the Ingredients
In a food processor, blend the beans, mushrooms, olives, pine nuts, eggs, garlic and salt, leaving some of the texture from the ingredients. Transfer the blend to a mixing bowl, add the parmesan cheese and mix gently with a spoon to preserve the structure of the cheese.
Baking the Patties
On a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, spoon the mix into 6 burger sized patties, then bake on the center rack at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven and allow the patties to cool for a few minutes before removing them from the tray.
The patties can be eaten without further cooking, but I prefer to pan fry them in a little peanut oil for a couple of minutes per side.
