LUMPENPROLETARIAT—[12 JAN 2021] This election is a disaster. Facebook has now banned the Trump loyalist slogan, “Stop The Steal.” Presumably, the idea is to protect Biden’s victory. Instead, the effect will be to rein
force the belief among the loyalists that they’re being cheated. Censorship never helps. Censoring the loyalists will only further erode the First Amendment. Next time, Facebook will censor other political slogans. If we condone censorship against one, we injure all. The answer to unwise speech is more wise speech, not censorship.
Now is a time for learning about how best to deal with malignant narcissists.
People of color & the poor have harbored & internalized excessive shame, such that it’s rendered us defenseless.
Meanwhile, white supremacists have been shame deficient, sin-verguenzas.
Here’s what people have been saying today about the Events of January 6th and more. Well, I hope to write about what America has been saying, what I’ve been hearing, what people have been thinking, and adding any relevant personal perspectives. But I am not a leisure class American; I am a working class American. So, my time is limited, as is my cognitive capacity. I am not the smartest, or the dumbest. But I always aim to be the hardest worker I can be. For now, these are my notes, which will serve my future scholarship. If they help you help America be better, good. If not, I always appreciate constructive criticism.

But we get to control, barring abuses of power, what goes in that file. So, you have freedom of speech, just watch what you say because the fascist deep state is looking for any excuse to persecute dissent.
