Francis Bacon, Study After Velázquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X, 1953
I don't think it's a coincidence that Francis Bacon, who gave us modern science and binary code, shares the same name with the painter. This is probably just how Bacon feels, looking down on the consequences of his work.
He's still alive! The liberal hero! The guy who wrote Manufacturing Consent! The guy who said "who cares?" who killed Kennedy or did 9/11. On my links page, there's a link to a video of him outright lying about the very nature of science.
The only reasonable response.
Little Suzy Greenberg, with her head caved in
Soon to let me drown beneath the undertow
You better put that woman in a looney bin
'Cause you know I'd really like to be a part of her show
Suzy is an artist, she paints quite a lot
An artist she may be, but a genius she is not
She says she wants to be a sociologist
But she better first get checked by a neurologist
Suzy, Suzy, Suzy, Suzy
Suzy, Suzy Greenberg
Suzy's 'bout as faithful as a slot machine
Pays off once in a while, but then she robs you clean
She's always afraid that she's not sure what she's worth
She's out of her mind, and she's not of this Earth
The woman walks the streets like she's the queen of the town
Doesn't talk very much, she's very profound
Little Suzy Greenberg, always playing a game
But today I bet she's probably forgot my name!
This is a new reading of history and makes a lot of sense.
This was subtle but intentional and sinister. They should have said "a pandemic among the unvaccinated," but they said "a pandemic of the unvaccinated," implying that unvaccinated people are themselves a pandemic. In classic Mockingbird fashion this phrase went out to all the media outlets at once.
The ruling families have been running hoaxes for centuries, people never catch on so they get more and more brazen. Now we are hearing that parents are murdering their children because of QAnon. A father brought his kids to Mexico and killed them with a spearfishing gun, because he was into QAnon. Sure he did. Remember, they *haven't figured out* who is behind Q yet. OK. Sounds legit.
Salem Witch Trials hoax
Charles Manson hoax
We knew Harvard has been a cesspool for a long time, but this is a new low.
Lisa Shaw was only 44.
He was one of the most eccentric artists ever, he had his own history of civilization, completely bonkers but he was totally convinced of it. He was fully individuated, nothing external could change what was inside, he was impervious. There's a good documentary on him called Struggle. Much of his work was unfortunately lost in WW II. The drawing below was done in one draft without any aid or correction.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
This is a longstanding mistranslation; the Greek word is χλωρός, chloros, from whence chlorophyl. Here then is the Green movement underway today. Credit to Terry Wolfe for pointing this out.
"Covid-19 is here to stay, meaning that masks and booster shots could be required for years to come, Israel’s coronavirus czar, Salman Zarka, said as he acknowledged mistakes made by the government in tackling the pandemic."
