The Huffington Rost
First an apology, the trickle of e-mails from readers have increased so much that I have a hard time keeping up. I'm reading them all, but I can't always respond to all the great suggestions you have for my blog.
Second, one of my readers has worked hard during 4th of July. Here is the result: The Huffington Rost. It is well worth checking out!
And finally, the last two weeks and even more so the last few days have been a weird place to be, especially if you were me. You know, weird, like a strange dream you wake up from. Only when I read The Huffington Rost and check my own postings I realize it is not a dream. But it sure feels like it.
I'd very much like to get back to reality and I hope both the people who like and dislike this blog will too.
Finally, the last few weeks have been an amazing public display in human behavior which demonstrates how both corporations and dictatorships operate; based on fear.
Out of 700 bloggers or so on HuffPo only one came to my defense, Gutfeld in his post Nuts About The Huffington Post! And he could get away with it because he used humour and was very careful about what he said about Arianna.
The rest didn't dare lifting a finger out of fear of losing their blogging priviliges. A few of them commented on other blogs . . . and also used very careful words when speaking about Arianna. But they did not comment on HuffPo.
This is how employees act and are expected to act when it comes to the CEO of a company, or the Boss, and this is how enslaved people act and are expected to act under a dictator.
The difference between the two is that employees can always quit.
Or so they say.
Reality is that there aren't that many jobs out there so employees often can't quit.
And so it continues, with men enslaving other men, the way they've done this since the beginning of time.
