I'm a I'm a neverwas (first time I have heard that one) - and I am here for personal reasons - scio/co$ has touched the periphery of my life - more than once - in fact, again and again. THAT IS WHY. Why does anyone do anything? Probably because it is personal. Has the critic forum become more 'life' than 'life' for some? Probably - and probably has become the core identity for some. I have seen this happen with activists in areas other than scno. Some people latch onto a 'cause' - or a 'side' - and protesting becomes their life and core - even when there is nothing left to protest. Then it gets crazy. Humans fairly consistently are always looking for the next 'enemy' - and find that, sometimes very close, too close, to 'home'. I find that sad (especially when that 'well-intentioned' and driving force turns in on it's self). But it is THEIR life (and who am I to judge???). I try to find the 'other' person there, in people, anyway, so it does not matter to me. But it can get in the way . . . In cyberspace, it can really get in the way. As to why Emma would post these FB postings - she was asked. Having read it, it helps me clarify what is going on - so Thank you Em, Thank you Zinj. I am glad I am (still) here, safe and sound. I am sad about all this going down, still coming down - the fall out. I don't get it, but it doesn't change my feelings about the people here, the ones who were here, the ones who are gone - or even if someone is osa or not, or who is / is not. So f'g what . . . The Truth will out - eventually. We have to live with the crap, though, until that happens. People do shitty things - history is full of it, and we will all continue to do it - occasionally - sometimes. We are human - yep even the scnos - even osa - fallible human beings, who screw up - and let 'denied' parts control the whole being. The biggest SPs on the planet are the osa. That is what it takes - to do that. WE are our own worst enemies. Fuck, I really hate this internal squabbling. The TARGET is OUT THERE - the co$ - the lies - the abuse - the trafficking - the imprisonments, disappearances, the deaths - the people caught in the web - the midget spider in the middle of it who not only furthers the diabolical lrh insanity, but has improved upon its depravity. OUT THERE.
