Is Samantha Power the fabled Beast from Revelations?


That something as rotten, evil, and shifty as Samantha Power exists is nearly unfathomable to the normal human mind which allows her to get away with exploiting genocide to justify further military aggression.

Someone like her would have done very well during the British occupation of India and today probably wishes she was working under Putin.  It would have been a much better niche for her.

The Black Death that swept through Europe was not nearly as bad as the decimation of the Native populations upon European contact. So why is the Black Death portrayed as so much worse?

In that same vein, why is that mild tragedy for us as Westerners is made to seem so much worse than complete annihilation of foreigners?

Why is redistribution of wealth in Sweden not causing the bread lines and abject poverty seen in the Soviet Union during “communist” rule?

Additionally, with how broken the economy and human society/civilization is at this point, would trying something new and giving “providing the basic necessities of life” a chance really be the worst thing imaginable?


The picture comes from: 50 Pictures Everyone Should See | Smashing Picture.

I chose it because it reminds me of the work of Ingmar Bergman, the Swedish director.
