Les bouts se touchent - (the extreme ends touch)
by American Kabuki
During these tense times in geopolitics its easy to get caught up in the media hype and hoopla and banging of war drums, accusations and counter-accusations that fly in such tense moments. Looming war, and civil insurgency in Ukraine, Iraq/Syria, martial law in Thailand, and the brutal leveling of Gaza in retribution for 3 teenagers killed in Israel (did anyone doubt those murdered kids would lead to war?).
I had a customer for many years that utilized my web servers for his web forums. A psychologist by training, he was an expert in reverse speech analysis and human behavior. He told me once of a college paper he wrote comparing the extremist literature of the John Birch Society, and Stokely Carmichael and other revolutionary groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s America.
What he found was that the inflammatory rhetoric was almost word for word the same, from one end of the political spectrum to the other. The template remained the same, regardless of the ideology. He used the French phrase "les bouts se touchent", (hopefully I got the French correct - no doubt I will corrected if its wrong!) which means the (extreme) ends (of the political spectrum in this case) touch each other... that is, they are the same.
What I do know is that people are waking up world wide on a scale not ever seen in recorded history of this planet. I have talked to Chinese that clearly see the corruption in their government, Japanese who see the bleak future its controlled elite offer their youth as an aging demographic clings to power. Russians who are every bit as awake as their American counterparts to the shenanigans their country pulls.
