Handling This Dark Era of The Advanced Ages

In honor of Cornell University's First Facebook Editor-in-Chief, JK Fraser, THE SOAPBOX VIEW Facebook page is where short essayically crafted statements will take shape. As was always this website's custom. When finished The WORK-IN-PROGRESS(es) will be catalogued in this The Soapbox View website. For example, this was started there.   

    The New Yorker ran the article, The Man Behind Critical Race Theory and posted it to Facebook themselves. I commented - Can't face the future without facing the past and facts.  - inciting 7 likes and 3 laughs.  
    _____ _______ responded - ok sure forever so people that did nothing should be blamed and finger pointed ha… 
    So I replied - And in being defensive, morality isn't defended. 
    So _____ _______ responded - nothing defensive … you treat people as they treat you and according to their character. Nothing wrong with learning the ugly parts of history … blaming for the past though does no good and will only incite racism. No one is born a persecutor or persecuted. That shouldn’t be taught.
    And I replied - Right. Hold tight to the whitewashing Coverup of American History. This don't blame us we're not responsible is just a veneer. What should be confronted here is centuries of mentalities that didn't respect the rights of all individuals. To now say facing that is persecution is denial. Deflected blame when this has nothing to do with blaming people personally. People grow up. That will happen sometime beyond this Dark Era of the Advanced Age.

Equal rights do not attack traditional values. Traditional values are less authentic without equal rights.
Dear Reader,
The Hammer and Cycle Messenger Service was written to express "capitalism from the bottom up," becoming a catchphrase, even before Hank Greenway's noble Moscow adventure during 1991's Soviet August Coup
This film, 
is an hour reading from chapters One and Four. Including the last, imagery laden, 24 minutes next to Roy Cohn's 39 East 68th Street townhouse. The first Tuesday following the 2016 November Presidential Election.

While this film
is from when Keegan Stephan and Charles Komanoff asked me to speak, introduce Fifth, Park and Madison, in The Great Hall of Cooper Union. In this film, after the 1987 documentary is screened and before the panel discussion, a picture appears of Lake County, Florida Sheriff Willis V. McCall with three of the Groveland Four and word "Sheriff." Meaning face history. Through age 15, his house was a block from mine. His dog bit me when I was five, and all the older kids laughed hysterically when I cried screaming I'd sue. I was too young to know of track records. Just that he was Sheriff McCall. My mother, uncomfortably, received his call the next day inquiring whether I was ok.
