Why they killed him:
The military is a dictatorship. It has to be.
In the military all of the thinking is done at the top by the experts.
Everybody else is legally bound to just follow orders.
The oligarchs have spent billions of dollars buying pro-military minded politicians who have spent trillions of dollars militarizing America.
Instead of empowering philosopher kings, we have elected a Kakistocracy.
Wasn’t that part of what King was saying?
Exactly what Eisenhower warned the nation about right before he left office in 1961: the “military-industrial complex”—-and “the disastrous rise of misplaced power”—-especially in the hands of a shithead in the Oval Office!
Meanwhile here in progressive Minnesota, mail carriers had the day off. Garbage haulers collected as per the usual schedule. No irony there!
