A glimpse back at life before the big surrender… | Mickey Z.

Mickey Z. "The proverbial genie is long gone from the proverbial bottle. We collectively surrendered. There’s no going back."

Not so long ago… check that: It doesn’t feel so long ago that I more naturally lived my life in a manner that enhanced my neurological, emotional, and physical well-being. Please allow me to elaborate.

Ditch “activism” and social media. Choose triage | Mickey Z.

Mickey Z.: "EVERYONE READING THIS IS POWERLESS TO HELP THE CHILDREN BEING HELD IN CAGES."

It takes very little introspection to comprehend that we have ZERO impact on big issues. Accepting this is not surrender. It’s logic. Like accepting, say, gravity.

Mickey Z.: "Elizabeth Jennings-Graham has become a footnote to the hagiography of male leaders.

Most Americans know well who the male civil rights figures are and have been. From MLK to Jesse and Malcolm to Sharpton, they are iconic household names. One of the few black women to attain such a rarefied status is Rosa Parks — and even then, her legacy is founded on willful sexist misperception...

Election Fraud in the United States: 2004 to Present -- Part III: The Validity of Exit Polls for Monitoring Elections | Dale Tavris

Dale Tavris: We need to address is whether exit polls are useful enough to serve as a warning sign of election fraud that requires further investigation. http://ow.ly/OqoR30kQVHj

The known vulnerability of our election system to electronic vote manipulation/fraud is well accepted. There may be disagreement on exactly how vulnerable it is, but nobody can argue that it isn’t highly vulnerable. So the relevant question becomes: Is it possible that the presence of widespread e...

She even wore sneakers.

When Katharine Hepburn (1907-2003) shunned the girdles, petticoats, stockings, garter belts, and high heels considered “normal” for women of her time, she was brazenly defying fashion and social convention.

Dorothea Lange created images of human dignity and courage in the face of vast injustice.

Mickey Z.: On Planet Patriarchy, males dominate. Thus, our decisions and inventions impact all forms of life 24/7.

Vikings, in general, and berserkers, in particular, were both feared and revered in their time. They’re idealized and romanticized today -- along with an endless list of barbaric and sadistic male warrior cultures, e.g. Aztecs, Romans, Spartans, Samurai, Visigoths, Mongols, Ninjas, and too many mo...
