Things to keep in mind (The secret of what we know)

Any of the early steps in its spread could have been either accidental or deliberate, but I just have trouble getting interested in that. I mean, even suppose we were sure of every element of a conspiracy: that the lives of Africans and African Americans are worthless in the eyes of the United States; that gay men and drug users are held cheap where they aren’t actively hated; that the military de

Wake up.. by Kip Manley
"I don't know how far in to an ongoing serial it's fair to get before writing a review, but I've been finding City of Roses to be genuinely as engrossing as people keep alleging prestige TV shows are, while having a lot more respect for its audience.

“Style and Structure are the essence of a book; great ideas are hogwash.”
Vladimir Nabokov

“he is every assertion the fucking War has ever made-that we are meant for work and government, for austerity: and these shall take priority over love, dreams, the spirit, the senses and the other second-class trivia that are found among the idle and mindless hours of the day...
