Necessary Illusions, By Noam Chomsky
(never read the book, but loved the title)
My Personal Book of the Month Selection:
“None Dare Call It Conspiracy” Gary Allen & Larry Abraham
‘If you wansa’ know was’ really happenin’ check this mutha out!!! Reads ya summa dis and cry crocodile tears backs ta tha plantation – too much truf fo’ ya!!!’
…Progressives are a funny species. It was only four years ago that they were saying, “we won’t let them steal the next election.” Or, “we’ll work really hard and take back the Congress in ’02.” I hate to tell you this but…”Ohio!!! “Them dat gum rascals, they dun did itch-AGAIN!!!” “Computerized Jim Crow in Da HoUsE!!!” I heard one a these handkerchief head leaders out here talkin”bout, ‘we need a new voting rights bill.’ Nigga, the right ta vote ain’t tha problem; its tha right ta count ’em thas really hangin’ us up like Emmit Till.
Read dat book, baby!
Psychosis: “A severe mental disorder, with or without organic damage, characterized by derangement of personality and loss of contact with reality and causing deterioration of normal social functioning.”
There is a pink elephant in the middle of the room, there is a pink elephant, there is a pink eleph…
Ohio…Florida Parts I&II…Iraq…death dealing Aids drugs to Africa…OUR ‘Defense’ budget which is larger than the next 15-20 countries COMBINED (‘you think that’s why maybe people don’t like us?)…the Prison Industrial complex (there’s more Victoria Secret in the pen than off the rack!)…the status quo reproducing education system…the ‘Leni Riefenstahl’ Mass Media Complex, AKA, “All the News that’s Fit for Simps.”
There is this ‘lil war going on, you may have heard of- its the war of the pinkie waving, tea sipping, International Capitalist/WTO/Hos’ versus Planet Earth. These devils allow only as much democracy as it take to NO-DOZ the populace. Ever wonder why you can get 31 flavors of Baskin Robbins and only two political parties?
Read dat book, baby!
Necessary illusions…necessary until the unvarnished truth becomes the raison d’etre of the freedom fightin’ resistance… Gum flapping, blonde dread flipping and tat posturing contests t’aint never been revolutionary acts, baby! Best, you put on yo’three piece an imitate the Company Man, and be the spook who sat by the door.
