Groucho & Karl: Who knew that Americans would all become Marxists?
      “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.  Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”  Groucho Marx said that.  So I just keep on reading — out here where there’s more light.  And I’m still slogging through Sophie’s World, a book about philosophy.  Just finished reading the chapter on Karl Marx.  Yep, he was a philosopher too — and a fairly interesting guy.  “The heart of any society is based on our ability to make and produce whatever kind of stuff that we need to keep ourselves alive and well.”  Karl Marx said [something like] that.

So.  Who produces all the life-sustaining stuff in America today?  Dresses, dishes, digital equipment, dolls and doo-dads all come from China.  Our all-important farmland is mostly owned by Bill Gates.  It is the CDC and Big Pharma that control our life-or-death medical choices — not Roe vs. Wade.  And everything else here is delivered by Amazon.  Karl Marx would have said that the basis of America’s society is always somebody else — not us.  And he would have been right.

      Groucho Marx said, “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.”  Not to worry.  Club America does not want us mere working-class peons to join it.  And neither does Club Global want us around either.  “Why bother with humans?  They are so messy.  Robots should be the basis for our society.  Robots can do the work.”  Nobody I know personally said that.
     So what should we do?  According to both Karl and Groucho, we need to go start our own damn clubs!  Let’s shut out and blackball those Evil Globalist Bastards, Big Pharma billionaires and military-industrial elites.  Let them be the outsiders for a change.  Let them be the unpopular kids sitting alone in the lunchroom — while we ourselves finally become the popular guys.
     “But Jane,” you might say, “How do we even manage to become our own means of production???  I don’t have a clue how to knit socks or grow kale.”  Yeah, but…. We gotta start somewhere.
     “I find television very educating,” sez Groucho.  “Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”  Let’s start by turning off our [made in China] TVs, stop getting indoctrinated to buy stuff on FascBook and figure out how to grow beans on the front lawn.  Decentralize everything so that you can walk everywhere?  Buy a freaking horse.  Think locally.  And, to also quote Groucho, “Learn from the mistakes of others.  You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.”

PS:  What other famous philosophers do we know about?  Lenin and Lennon of course.  John Lennon said “All you need is Love”.  Sure.  But we also need food, air, water, shelter and the occasional “Ata Boy”. 

     Vladimir Lenin, on the other hand, was the start-up prototype for today’s Evil Globalist Bastards.  He was not interested in the fate of blue-collar workers, the salt of the earth.  He wanted to play with the Big Dogs and would have been the absolute darling of Davos had he been alive today.  He would have hated John Lennon — and even Karl and Groucho Marx.

PPS:  Omicron is soooo much milder than Delta that it’s almost like having the sniffles.  So if everyone in the world comes down with a case of Omicron, then we’ll all be naturally immune to COV$D forever.  Big Pharma’s worst nightmare, sure, but then we can just go back to worrying about Evil Globalist Bastards, the military-industrial complex attacks on Palestine, Venezuela, etc. and American bombs over Syria and Yemen.

     If every human being on the planet gets this milder and nicer Omicron variant, then we all will become naturally immune to COV$D.  Bye-bye to Big Pharma profits, bye-bye to Day 647 of this stupid lock-down, bye-bye to “vaccines” and “boosters” that don’t work, bye-bye to torturing our children with face masks, bye-bye to idiots in our health departments, bye-bye to censorship, bye-bye to….

Written 40 years ago, this sci-fi novel feels like what’s happening today (except that the author blames all his crazy lock-down on poor old Karl Marx and not the Evil Globalist Bastards):
Good advice on how to make our shiny new spike proteins happy:
Here’s Joe Rogan’s famous podcast with Dr. Peter McCullough.  Everything you would ever want to know about the treatment of COV$D:
“If living was a thing that money could buy, you know the rich would live and the poor would die….”




Stop Wall Street, War Street, Big Pharma and Big Tech from destroying our world.   And while you’re at it, please buy my books.
