@edgarblythe,
When I was a kid my favorite relative was Uncle Caveman. After school we'd all go play in his cave, and every once in a while he would eat one of us. It wasn't until later that I found out that Uncle Caveman was a bear.

There is a story, often told, that upon exiting the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was approached by a group of citizens asking what sort of government the delegates had created. His answer was: "A republic, if you can keep it."

@edgarblythe,
Conditioning in Psychology...doomed if you have it doomed if you don't...
(I am looking at the Universals here not at Politics)
...now think about that for a minute, you always go from a prison to another...I have serious trouble with the word "freedom" always had!

And the funny thing you know on all this is that I am as rebel as they come.
...oh well, I find me laughing at myself so often...I feel like a cartoon in some big cosmic comedy!

Roy Orbison's voice came blasting out of the small speakers. His new song, "Running Scared," exploded into the room.
Orbison, though, transcended all the genres - folk, country, rock and roll or just about anything. His stuff mixed all the styles and some that hadn't even been invented yet. He could sound mean and nasty on one line and then sing in a falsetto voice like Frankie Valli in the next. With Roy, you didn't know if you were listening to mariachi or opera. He kept you on your toes. With him, it was all about fat and blood. He sounded like he was singing from an Olympian mountaintop and he meant business. One of his previous songs, "Ooby Dooby" was deceptively simple, but Roy had progressed. He was now singing his compositions in three or four octaves that made you want to drive your car over a cliff. He sang like a professional criminal. Typically, he'd start out in some low, barely audible range, stay there a while and then astonishingly slip into histrionics. His voice could jar a corpse, always leave you muttering to yourself something like, "Man, I don't believe it." His songs had songs within songs. They shifted from major to minor key without any logic. Orbison was deadly serious - no pollywog and no fledgling juvenile. There wasn't anything else on the radio like him.”
― Bob Dylan, Chronicles: Volume One

“I remember the newspapers dying like huge moths. No one wanted them back. No one missed them. And the Government, seeing how advantageous it was to have people reading only about passionate lips and the fist in the stomach, circled the situation with your fire-eaters.”

@edgarblythe,
No, Shakespeare suffered from Moby Dick, it put considerable strain on his marriage to Anne Hathaway.

“I like the scientific spirit—the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them: this is ultimately fine—it always keeps the way beyond open—always gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, a chance to try over again after a mistake—after a wrong guess.”
― Walt Whitman, Walt Whitman's Camden Conversations

A big lie ultimately leads to violence because you're not going to be able to defend it in any other way.
The big lie of Mr. Trump has already led to violence and death.

@coluber2001,
There are other big lies leading to death, as in MLK, JFK. There are other forms of violence out there every day, such as poverty, unjustified war actions, suppression and killing targeted sections of the populace, overuse of weed killers and poisons, opioids, people not distancing or wearing masks, family dysfunction. Surprisingly with or without Trump and Hitler.

As Harry Truman once said, “Socialism is a scare word they've hurled at every advance the people have made. Socialism is what they called public power, social security, deposit insurance, and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for anything that helps all people.”
