All Holocausted Out: What I Think of Non-Jews Usin…

I got an email in the comments section of  from the scholar Danusha Goska about something that I said in my posting about how I came to write my book  . I had mentioned that a friend said to me that I must be “all holocausted out” after writing my first book about my parents. Dr. Goska wanted to know what I thought about using the word “Holocaust” to describe the experiences of non-Jews like my parents in World War II.The following is my answer to her question:My mother wasn't an educated woman. She had no college, no high school even. She couldn't read the books that argue about who was and who was not in the Holocaust.When I was growing up, she never said she was in the Holocaust. She wasn’t a talker, but she talked little about what happened to her …

Synchronicity - great minds think alike?

I am an antitheist and have seen no evidence for the existence of any deity, yet I find myself strongly attracted to many natural phenomena, such as sunsets, starry nights, trees, rocks, seascapes and mountains, in what I experience as a ‘spiritual’ connection and I am a great believer i…

Purcell's Jewish Conspiracy Theory

Purcell, You talk about truth as needing to be completely re-analyzed and you are the person to guide the people to some oasis, some undiscovered mirage in a vast desert of lies.  Yes, a mirage.  Your mirage. It is more than this actually.  From what you say, it is a conspiracy of rac…

Himmler's Posen Speech

Heinrich Himmler's Speech at Posen is considered to be one of the most blatant examples of a leader of the Third Reich admitting to the Genocide of Europe's Jews. Holocaust deniers scoff at this, saying that either the bit that Himmler discusses is fake or that the word Himmler uses for "exterminati…

Nothing Makes Sense - a poem

Racism – the province of ignorance.

  My premise is that racism is based on ignorance and primitive tribalism.   We share 99% of our genes with chimpanzees. We are really nothing more than a third race of chimps. We also share nearly as much with our other close relative – the gorilla.   Human beings are extremely…

NICE TO SEE YOU. I'M A VICTIM.

  Ok. I read all those comments here about Charlotteville. I excuse myself, because it's not my business what happens in the US (I get often reminded of that), but what happens over there comes over here to Europe too - sooner or later. Sometimes it's good news like Elvis, Easy Rider or Noam C…

The Oldness of the Corrupt

The corrupt Deep State/Shadow Government is not new.  It got its legs with World War 1.  Business began to supply both the Brits and the Germans in 1914 finding war to be most lucrative.  Business did the same in the 1930s and again found WW2 great for the bottom line.  No wonder…
