In the Throes of Malice, Finger Pointing and Virulence. We Need To Think About Civility
"Methinks the lady doth protest too much." is a line from the play HAMLET, by William Shakespeare. This phrase, now surviving from Elizabethan times, has become famous and used in everyday speech to draw attention to a "theatrical" flourish which paints sneering doubt on someone's sincerity and veracity. An overly strong, and over bearing denial has a way of making the "Listener" seize upon a frown, filled with scorn and a doubting facial wrinkle, which weakens the phony zealous claim.
I. The Shakespearean Vigorous Volume of Denial Is Most Often Set on "LOUD".
These days, when you go to political meetings, School Board yelling matches and gatherings in intersections, you can hear the strident tones that people have been planning for days and weeks. Now with the advent of costumed and helmet- covered rioting groups; the Shakespearean quote seems to bellow from alleys, street corners and secret rooms which are loaded with weapons and loud speakers.
People are quite loudly getting paid expenses, spending money and receiving hotel benefits and given "uniform budgets". But all of this effort is terribly transparent. And this is the "Moving Picture" that we all get to see unless we can find some other civilized activity!
II. "Uriah At The Wall!" - "The Crime That Is Not Seen as a Crime, Is Never Reported as a Crime."
23) The messenger said to David, “The men overpowered us and came out against us in the field, but we drove them back to the entrance of the gate.
25) Then David told the messenger, “Say this to Joab: ‘Do not let this matter upset you, for the sword devours one as well as another. Strengthen your attack against the city and demolish it."
King David does end up paying for his crime, (Having Uriah abandoned in battle) by virtue of the Prophet Nathan. This is a famous Biblical tale and discloses the nature of the David and Bathsheba relationship that is now famous and legendary. SOLOMON comes from these two as Mother and Father.

Cybernetic Hackers - Continuous Irreducible Alibis - And Individuality
III. A Devout Enemy Can Always Be Trusted to Construct Constant Denials all the way up to the geo-political level. Totalitarian states tend to suffer little "internal" difficulties during these times.
"I Never Gave My OK to Perform Cybernetic Tricks by the "Hackers" on the American Oil!" -- Putin.
New TECHNIQUES are being employed by China and Russia.
The Pandemic, Cybernetic terrorism, controlling resources and robbing and stealing technologies have been the strenuous multi-year campaign to tip America over and to try to dominate world currency, resources, high tech and increasingly the whole of Asia. China is buying up American companies right and left. But it's not WAR, yet. And this specter has people both fearful and in a state of trepidation.
IV. Continuous Irreducible Alibis that function as Denials Can Live on as "Political Corruption" and can Self Perpetuate.
Wikipedia discusses: "Political corruption or "Malpolitics" is the use of powers by government officials or their network contacts for illegitimate private gain. Forms of corruption vary, but can include bribery, lobbying, extortion, cronyism, nepotism, parochialism, patronage, influence peddling, graft, and embezzlement. Corruption may facilitate criminal enterprise such as drug trafficking, money laundering, and human trafficking, though it is not restricted to these activities. Misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents and general violence is also considered political corruption."
So What About The INDIVIDUAL?
Ultimately crowds are made up of individuals. These days, with "Modern Marketing" and "Social Media", each of as as a part of the big unwieldy marketplace, we can be actively and subtly sold and persuaded, from market to market, as if we were not ourselves anymore, but reflections of groups of types of people. This might seem farfetched, but as we move through the quagmire of our modern currents of populations, we might find that we are losing our core and need to think about that word "sacrosanct".
1. During times of war and depression and the downgrading of urban economies, individual crime and degradation tend to sink together. Just look at crime rates during this recent time.
2. It behooves the individual during tough times to hold onto the values that they cherish.
3. We should adhere to the standards that we value, no matter what outside conditions might be declaring.
4. Moving or changing locations to better environments can be helpful.
5. Remember family. Family, keeping your own family values, has jewels for your loved ones. Remember family. We need each other.
