Progress-of Imagery

It is not that they are oblivious to the Orwellian inference, I am beginning to think it is just the opposite, it’s a dare. 

That observation is by Two by Four at Belmont Club. It was prompted by the government contractors working on the domestic spying program "Perfect Citizen" who shared emails with the Wall Street Journal that boasted "Perfect Citizen is Big Brother."

And now, before I offer you my imagery, I remind you dear reader of this progression:
Altruistic ==► Casuistic ==► Craven ==► Shameless ==► Brazen ==► Sneer at US ==► Contempt for US ==► [TBD]

Think of a rodent burrowing into new ground that is soft like never before. 
With each new stage, it pops its weaselly head up to see if there’s any predators closing in. 
The varmint infestation is astonished at how easy its advancement has suddenly become. 
They can’t believe their luck as they continue on their rahming…. 


  1. William T. Sherman knew that once he broke it's shell and got into the Confederacy it would prove as soft inside as an egg.

    Not sure if I came up with the term "Rahm it through" or found it someplace.

  2. I yet have to read the book, but this Reader's Digest version is interesting.

    THE ROAD TO SERFDOM Foreword by Edwin J. Feulner Jr

    I'm presently too involved with my kids to give all of this much effort. (Hurry up school time) But would appreciate it if you would read and reflect and consider it in your efforts.

    Keep it up. God knows we need every effort.

  3. 1. Nice analogy there P. How many minds do you think you will reach with it? Ha! Even your adopted project RayGun won't budge an inch.

    2.There won't be much protein left in that egg to feed the large numbers who will be hungry after the rats have abandoned ship. Get back to me how your mind sees "life" then.

    3. Papa. There is no use guessing what "innocents" will be picked up in the cross-fire in the drive to survive. You may find you need some things more than ammo then.

  4. Hey Pasc, great link Until Cryonics Do Us Part

    Fantastically written. Talking about numerous ideas at any one time and at the same time...

    Probably over many's heads.

  5. Life of the Mind: William T. Sherman knew that once he broke it's shell and got into the Confederacy it would prove as soft inside as an egg.

    Joseph E. Johnston to Jefferson Davis:

    "Our people are tired of the war, feel themselves whipped, and will not fight. Our country is overrun, its military resources greatly diminished, while the enemy's military power and resources were never greater and may be increased to any extent desired. ... My small force is melting away like snow before the sun."
