BARBARIANS AT THE GATE: GREECE, MIDEAST, EXXON, MACBETH
As I write, Greek PUBLIC TRANSIT WORKERS FOR MULTIPLE DAYS ON STRIKE calling others:
And, of course, BARBARIANS AT THE GATES throughout ALL Maghreb, Mideast, Menasa, Sub Saharan Africa.
ALL in flames.
So, rather than recapitulate with nothing further to add to that which is available elsewhere on other websites, blogs, I follow, but, NOT in MOST CAPTIVE OF ALL NATIONS, NAZI occupied US media, I thought I would post 2 seemingly minor links.
The first one NOT really minor, BUT, I call it a footnote to deeper historical context, namely, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY ROCKEFELLER EXXON empire, octopus, dynasty, formerly Standard Oil.
I consider it minor BECAUSE book author interview BELOW sanitizes, censors, limits, misrepresents, legitimates, EXXON CRIMINAL background, as well as some others named.
The fact it appears at all on C-Span guarantees a whitewash, as well as PRIVATE corporate interests represented both by author and commentator below.
Nonetheless, I feature it BECAUSE, at minimum, for THOSE WILLINGLY OR UNWITTINGLY KNOWING NOTHING, at least a FEW minimal points made that SHOULD be OBVIOUS ones to everyone and anyone, tip of a gargantuan iceberg.
Interestingly, as usual, Rockefeller name NEVER mentioned in discussion below.
Presumably, Rockefeller name appears in author's book??
Also, I thought to take this opportunity since a controversial Keystone XL Transcanda oil pipeline proposal re-emerged amidst following discussion (and in the news) to REMIND everyone WHY former Alaska Governor Sarah PALIN HAD to be eliminated from ANY POLITICAL scene, having nothing whatsoever to do with bogus cultural issues.
Palin as Alaska Governor became persona non grata with MAJOR INTERNATIONAL ENERGY PLAYER EXXON and their PARTNERS, consortium, including BP.
Palin certainly was NOT against oil or gas exploration, development, PRIVATIZATION.
On the contrary.
She simply did NOT accept EXXON MONOPOLY CARTEL, ABSOLUTE, DICTATORIAL, CONTROL, TERMS.
At that time, COMPETING Alaska gas pipeline routes and possible suppliers existed.
She selected Transcanada because, as SHE claimed, AS STATE CEO, Governor, she bargained the BEST ECONOMIC DEAL FOR HER STATE.
That being a BASIC, ELEMENTARY, reason, criterion, WHY she had to be ELIMINATED from ANY present or future political career, position.
To REFRESH your memories regarding PALIN and HER TRANSCANADA GAS PIPELINE project, I link AFTER BOOK DISCUSSION below to 2 older posts I did on this matter.
So, FIRST, recent EXXON BOOK interview for what it's worth rehashing what is OBVIOUS to me:
And, as promised above, a brief reminder about Transcanada, Exxon and Palin.
I did MANY posts on THIS SUBJECT which everyone chose to ignore at that time.
Below two selected.
Sorry, SOME embedded links no longer work.
But, some still do:
And, now, for something alittle different, a cultural note, but, not unrelated.
A program on Shakespeare's Macbeth.
I think Macbeth performance analysis, dissection, below OBVIOUSLY applicable to current events.
Personally, I enjoy more than all others Royal Shakespeare Company performances.
Most likely, it is because I find THEIR product so impressively CONSISTENT, an overwhelming CRAFT, SKILL, honed through so much time.
It simply is an art form, genre, in which they exceed and excel, mastered, developing amazing depth as a consequence.
They do NOT have up and down weak points.
I am NOT against avant garde, novel, ingenuous, interpretations, experimentation, etc.
But, those are hit and miss affairs, so to speak.
Royal Shakespeare Company CONSISTENTLY satisfies in CRAFT AND QUALITY.
They bring this impressive art form, insight, craft, skill, training, repetoire, to ANY and all dramatic performances they do, including comedy:
