“Freedom is the recognition of necessity.” — Friedrich Engels

Prolegomenon and valedictory entwined. While the usual podcasting magic is being retooled and revamped by a host of trained and dedicated media elves to better serve you, let me direct you immediately to sign up and subscribe to my YouTube Channel Lionel Nation. Daily screeds, disquisitions, rants and rails, howls and hoots. Shake your collective fists at the power structures that corrupt and enrage. This is not a drill. It’s a full frontal assault. No prisoners in this war for truth. Here . . . an amuse-bouche to titillate, scintillate and inspire you to salivate.

LIONEL PODCAST: CNN Redefines Sniveling Cowardice Via Fake News and Attempting Fruitlessly the Delegitimizing of Trump

“Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra?” M. CICERONIS TULLI ORATIO IN L. CATILINAM PRIMA

What has happened here is rather obvious. It’s been slow, incremental, glacial. The public’s habituated, humiliated and chastened. Slapped and cajoled, conned and convinced . . . told that news isn’t to be true or real or even factual. Shite happens, Sparky. What are you getting upset over? What’s the big deal? Perhaps it’s a generational thing. We dinosaurs remember a time when the idea of a Cronkite getting shitfaced on New Year’s Eve whilst simultaneously pierced made our souls quiver and quake. And throw in the horrid Washington Compost for good measure. No, this isn’t an accident or happenstance. It’s deliberate, targeted and by design. Enjoy. 

LIONEL PODCAST: America Needs an Intellectual Makeover

What exactly is this podcast about anyway? That’s a great question. Have you ever listened to any Anthony Braxton? Well, if so, think that experience on anxiolytics. A frenetic calm. The antipodal opposites. Just listen. Oh, and guess who actually has the best plan and mode of approach in handling Putin, Russia and NATO? Are you sitting down?

LIONEL PODCAST: Hate Crimes Are Exceedingly Stupid! (Inter Alia)

Would you rather be savagely rendered unconscious by (a) a regular garden variety beatdown or (b) a regular garden variety beatdown motivated by a hatred for your race, faith, sexual identity or ____ (fill in your demographic)? What difference does it make? Think about it.

Rather than saying this woman was viciously attacked, media reports repeat almost gleefully that she was transgendered. I’m not kidding. The news coverage was all over the fact that she was transgendered and it actually overshadowed the gravamen of the incident, viz. that she was attacked brutally!

Congratulations. We’ve officially lost our minds.

LIONEL AUDIO: Don’t Blame Colbert. Blame Yourself.

Imagine Borat appearing before Congress joking about AIDS. Or Julia Sweeney as Pat testifying as to transgender issues. Or Maude Frickert speaking on global warming. (How’s that for dating yourself, but Jonathan Winters is a genius.) Who’d laugh? Certainly not the crowd who would find Colbert’s embarrassing, inappropriate, out-of-line, disrespectful, mocking, classless appearance before Congress funny. First those issues would be most certainly those they can relate to and identify with. Immigration is, well, shall we say a tad too cerebral for the crowd that would find colonoscopy and Brazilian waxing funny. But it’s not just Colbert. It’s the state of comedy today, hijacked by kids and semi-literates who find fart jokes and boogers funny. And no one loves well-placed flatus follows more than I. (Can you say Blazing Saddles?) You can see it on SNL this past week. And on a season opener, no less. The Daily Show, perhaps the best written political show, can’t get through an episode without F-bombs aplenty.

But this guy’s not to blame. We’re to blame. So many don’t read, think, care or investigate anything. We just want to be amused. Like a parent jiggling keys to distract a crying infant. And dig the dude smelling his pencil.

But first, a proem of labyrinthine beauty. Intricate, complex, fluid ricocheted thoughts.
