Eight was too young to learn of war crimes, or maybe not....
A brother to my grandfather was captured in the fall of the Philippine Islands in 1942. He survived though the DOD declared him dead so informing the family. But his wife knew it was not so from her internal voice. He was not dead, fate was cruel as he was transported to the Japanese home islands as slave labor.
He never spoke of it to my knowledge. Not around me.
Oh and yes his son too answered the call to arms in his time.
This was about 1961 and the topic came up somehow. About his abuse and massive weight loss and such leading to the line she uttered that busted the ice.
"Yes and they fed him ground glass in his food"
I think the decision to refuse totalitarianism credibility began with that shiver up my spine. Left, right or somewhere in between oppression is flat wrong.
Well folks the current state of affairs in dark empires and public knowledge of the dark events is feeding us all glass too.
Mind bending glass non physical but just as lethal. And I posit just as shocking and angering as the disclosure above.
The last American presidential assassination has become a bullet point in boredom to some.
It in fact is a focus exactly because the provable facts support the not approved truth that a conspiracy existed then and still thrives today in both a strategy of tension and the event of perpetual war.
A focus of proof the Empire has no legitimacy in fact.
The overarching media partners spread the manure forcing the aware to have to tolerate the same manure but turn it to nutrients and bust out of it.
Or one can decide to have another serving of ground glass in your GMO mystery meats and veggies and accept the shit
Instead some will feed that glass back to the Empire.
