What Should We Do Now: The frightening report of the Transition Integrity Project.
“On the second Friday in June, a group of political operatives, former government and military officials, and academics quietly convened online for what became a disturbing exercise in the fragility of American democracy.”

The group, which included Democrats and Republicans, gathered to game out possible results of the November election, grappling with questions that seem less far-fetched by the day: What if President Trump refuses to concede a loss, as he publicly hinted recently he might do? How far could he go to preserve his power? And what if Democrats refuse to give in?”
“The law is essentially ... it’s almost helpless against a president who’s willing to ignore it.”
“Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble,” Lewis, 80, wrote shortly before his death on July 17, 2020, from pancreatic cancer.

"Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats' assertion that President Trump is a fascist," the conservative legal scholar wrote. "But this latest tweet is fascistic and is itself grounds for the president's immediate impeachment again by the House of Representatives and his removal from office by the Senate."

Woke = Racist?

Consciousness contains all Multiverse
The Singularity cannot be hacked
The Divine Programmer manifests Love
Phenomena radiates it back
With Immaculate power and humble Grace
We Burn down Samsara
At Home, this must be the Place

Weird tests. Took quite a few and I'm not sure how accurate they were.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Race and other prejudices are complex things, more complex than mainstream society makes them out to be. For instance, if I like one race more than another, or if I think one race is better than another, that can be called racism and probably deserves it, but you can't account for taste.

I think the ones that struck me the most was the one on religion--Muslim vs. Jews. I'm a total shoes and think both religions are full of shit. So, any conclusion that they could comes to from that test will be wrong.
