President Trump should be thankful for living in the United States of America, still a free country. If he had been living in the Napoleonic era his eyes would end up staring blankly into the sky from the bottom of a basket. Napoleonic era – Wikipedia Guillotine – Wikipedia
The Senate impeachment trial facts are convincing, yet most Republican Senators look the other way. The trial is about free speech. One side uses free speech to spread lies. The other side uses its freedom of speech, to tell the truth, How can the justice system, or anyone uncover a lie? The GOP remains loyal to Trump. The GOP’s silence about domestic terrorism is deafening!
I hope they dream about long lines of baskets!
“Hannah Arendt spoke about extraordinary cases in which an entire society is being lied to consistently. She said that the consequences of such lying are “not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie – a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days – but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows.”
