Apparently, that's what "journalists" do now. They follow, stalk and dox jurors 'cause that's how we roll in the Shire.
I was raised with the rule that there are certain things you just don't say and certain things you just don't do...ever! Doxing jurors falls under the "Just Don't Do" heading in a civilized society.
Nevertheless, on November 29th, Bloomberg writers Mary Biekert and Patricia Hurtado announced just enough details on the occupations, previous employment, ethnicities, etc. of the jurors in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial that anyone with 1) natural curiosity, 2) access to the Internet, 3) a LinkedIn account and/or a really good network of acquaintances could probably figure out the identity of the jurors in The Case of The Decade.
It's almost as if Bloomberg doesn't want Ghislaine to receive her Constitutional right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury. Hmmmm, now why would that be!?
"The world is an evil place," my parents always tried to impress on me. But twenty years ago, as a young woman with my eyes full of stars and my heart full of dreams, I found that hard to believe. I tried to take their warnings to heart and see a would-be attacker or rapist around every corner, lurking down every alley but as time went on, I learned that your normal, every day, garden variety American is a pretty nice, good person.
Oh, I knew bad things happened but I believed that, for example, child molestation was rare. A now-and-then occurrence when that weird Uncle Bob lured his niece or nephew into the back shed with candy.
Then middle-aged men began coming forward with horrible stories of Catholic priests who had abused them decades ago. Middle-aged women began to talk openly about being sexually abused by nuns at Catholic orphanages. Lots of priests and nuns at lots of parishes.
And I figured the Catholic church had a problem.
Then I heard that the pastors and PK's at my strict, IFB school groomed and raped students.
And I figured there was a problem amongst some protestant clergy too.
Then I heard about orphans from Boys Town in Nebraska trafficked to the White House under George H. W. Bush's reign. And I figured GHWB had a problem.
But I was wrong. My rosy view of the world was wrong. In fact, my look-on-the-dark side parents were wrong too. The whole cockeyed world is wrong.
Pedophilia isn't isolated to that weird uncle with the perpetual Epstein smirk or that creepy pastor. Don't get me wrong, they're bad but they're garden variety pedophiles. Isolated. Working alone. Small potatoes. And so, for a long time, we thought they were the only pedophiles because they were the only ones getting prosecuted while the Global Pedophilia and Sex Trafficking Ringleaders said how horrible it all was, gave generously to charities to help victims of sexual abuse and swam away unseen, unprosecuted, unfettered.
We're just beginning to get it. Pedophilia is rampant. It's not isolated, it's not rare, it's not secretive. No! It's massive!!! It's everywhere!!! It's systemic in the fabric of every system, every culture, every religion, every industry, every nation. It's how the world works now.
It's like Charlie Chaplin said in his movie Monsier Verdoux: "Kill one person and you're a murderer; kill a thousand and you're a hero."
Rape one child and you're a horrible pedophile. Rape, traffick and murder thousands of children and you're an influential Prince of Industry. You're a respected Politician. You're the leader of a Religion. You're a past President.
Pedophilia is a culture. It's a network. It's an entertainment. It's a hierarchy. It's a currency. It's a religion. It's how the world has worked for years...and only the good people did not know it. The good people who could've tried to do something to stop it if only they'd known it was going on.
I've finally got it through my thick skull that pedophilia is the underlying structure of how the globe functions. Thank God Donald Trump is taking it down!
Lin Wood's Pedophilia Tweets Didn't Go Far Enough: Are Those in Power Mind Controlled as well as Blackmailed???
Twisted, evil sex. From time immemorial, it's been the Devil's currency.
That's a crying shame because proper loving sex is a beautiful thing. The great comedian George Burns wrote in his autobiography that his wife and fellow comedian, Gracie Allen, always laughed at him when they made love. Laughter, happiness and love should be the context for sex as C. S. Lewis wrote in The Four Loves:
When the Devil has twisted sex into some horrible monster, there is no laughter. Only performance and power, evil and control, manipulation, mind control, horror and death.
Lin Wood's revelations over the weekend shocked all good people but why!?! We've known for millenia that twisted, evil versions of sex have always been the Devil's currency and he's been using it to great effect in this country for decades (at least.) In our goodness, we simply didn't realize how far it had pervaded our Corridors of Power.
Wood only shared one way the Devil's own Deep State uses sex to compel our judges and politicians to do their bidding. Perhaps it goes even further than simple crude blackmail.
You hear some awfully funny things online. On Monday, we heard a benediction pronounced after the Michigan Electors committed treason. Later, while Texas was casting their Electoral Votes, we heard mention of Chief Justice Roberts screaming at his fellow SCOTUS judges.
No! Say it cannot be! Judges are above politics. Irreproachable. Job security for life. Independent.
Or are they!?
