Have the Anarchists created their own Tabernacle like the one the Trumpites created – FOR WHITE PEOPLE ONLY? If OCCUPY had taken over the Post Offices, and not USED the homeless as their battering ram, then this Revolution would have happened twelve years ago.
In ZARDOZ we see ZED being examined in the vortex that is held together by the Tabernacle. Consider Trump being examined by many evangelicals and their leaders in regards to his sexual abuse of women – and they passed him with flying colors – and still do!
Zed is the subject of much debate amongst the bored Eternals. It’s a matriarchal world in which May (Sara Kestelman) is calling for new births even though none are needed, and Consuella is constantly condemning sex as a vile, degrading and base. Of course, the arrival of Zed, this hairy, animalistic personification of masculinity, has stirred up everyone’s long repressed desire; even the Apathetics, a class of catatonic immortal who’ve simply given up the will even to move.
It’s this plague of ennui-induced paralysis that prompted Frayn / Zardoz to instruct the Exterminators to initiate a forced farming programme with the Brutals as slaves, since the Eternals are rapidly running out of people willing to contribute to the upkeep of their infrastructure.
“Once again, a big liberal city has completely now lost control of what is a critical situation …” Hannity began. “Look what’s going on in Seattle. It is so bad that a bizarre group of these loosely affiliated anarchists and other losers have literally now taken over six city blocks in one of Seattle’s most prominent neighborhoods.
“Dozens of homes, now under siege without any police protection. A police precinct is now under anarchist control,” the host went on.
“Governor Inslee, what are you doing? Nothing up to this point.”
WASHINGTON — NASCAR is demanding that its fans no longer fly Confederate flags at races. The Pentagon and some Republican senators are open to renaming military bases that bear the names of Confederate soldiers. Corporate America is taking stances against racial injustice. A majority of Americans say the police show racial bias in their use of force, and a majority of self-described conservatives acknowledge protesters’ frustrations are at least somewhat justified.
Yet with public opinion shifting quickly on racism in America, and even some of the most cautious leaders and institutions talking openly about discrimination and reconciliation, there is still one glaring outlier: President Trump.
Whether it is suggesting shooting protesters or siccing dogs on them, pre-emptively defending the Confederate names of military installations or arguing that his supporters “love the black people,” Mr. Trump increasingly sounds like a cultural relic, detached from not just the left-leaning protesters in the streets but also the country’s political middle and even some Republican allies and his own military leaders.
While Mr. Trump has a long history of making insensitive and tone-deaf comments on race, including remarks widely seen as racist, he has never appeared more isolated on a dominant social and political moment in the country, hunkered down at the White House tweeting conspiracy theories about injured protesters and describing demonstrators as “THUGS.”
He regularly uses harsh and violent language that no other American leader employs, vocally supporting the views of white nationalists and even defenders of white supremacy rather than the views expressed by majorities of Americans in polls.
“He’s talking as if this is a country in the 1950s and not 2020,” said Levar Stoney, the mayor of Richmond, Va., where a multiracial group of protesters has prompted the city and state to take down Confederate statues.
