Naked

Watching the Axios interview of Donald Trump, I was reminded of the June 1972 release of the John Lennon-Yoko Ono double album, "Some Time in New York City." In the upper right-hand corner of the LP's cover, there is a picture of President Nixon and Chairman Mao dancing naked with wild abdomen. Some people were upset by this, including members of the Nixon administration.

In an interview, Yoko explained that she thought politicians should be naked in their campaigns, and all meetings while in office. Yoko was 48 years ahead of her time. Today, we have witnessed the naked lying of the president, despite him being fully dressed.

2. The Naked Emperors and those pesky clothes their followers see

If I have not learned anything else from these last four years, Iíve definitely had my eyes opened about the 30% of Americans who see what theyíre told to see even after they donít see it.

I used to believe that the dissemination of knowledge, through education could cure all our evils. Now, not so much.

6. I think that

it can best be viewed in the context of a cult. The Trumpites are no different than the members of smaller cults, and the concept of 30% of the voting public being as brain-dead as the average Manson follower was is hard to believe. And I do not anticipate that they will come to their senses any time soon.

38. Actually I read someplace, maybe here, that during the

American Revolution about the same amount of 30 percent of people wanted to remain a British Colony.

That cheered me up immensely!

39. That's true.

About one third were pro-Britsh, another third backed the revolution, and the other third took no position. I think that is one of the history lessons that hasn't been properly taught in schools, and thus a large part of the public is ignorant of that fact. I appreciate you bringing it up!

Though it was long ago, I think the group dynamics of the Revolutionary War -- as well as the Civil War -- are important to understand in order to place today's situation in an object context. It's a topic that has fascinated me most of my life -- actually since I was in the 1st grade, though I clearly had a six year old's understanding at the time. Our principal told our class about Mohawk Leader Joseph Brant's camp in our town, and I was hooked. That afternoon, my mother told me that one of our family was friends with Brant; within a week, my brothers showed me where Brant's camp had been.

Some of my ancestors, including the one who was friends with Brant, sided with England. A factor was that they were opposed to the expansion into Indian territory that the Patriots favored. Life on the "western front" was tough enough without more conflicts with some of the Ohio River Valley Indian nations. More, after the Revolution, many of these people advocated recognizing the Lenape as a state within our union.

I studied this on my own, and didn't learn about it in school. It wasn't until college that I found it inside of a classroom as part of our country's history. Likewise, college courses provided the more accurate lessons of the colonial era as involving black, white, and red peoples. I think this can be applied to understanding current events, too.
