Saturday, June 06, 2020

Documents obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a Pentagon war game, called the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program, or JLASS, offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a "Zbellion" in America in the mid-2020s.

"offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a "Zbellion" in America in the mid-2020s."

What's this scenario involve, I wonder..

Did the Pentagon look into seizing the means of production to put an end to fifty years of economic malaise for the bottom 80% of households.

Or was it more along the lines of simply cracking the skulls of the latest generation to grow up in an America where, since 1975, practically all the gains in household income have gone to the 20% of households.

Endeavor to persevere is probably where Dr Ford got it from. It was also the first time I got close enough to see he had a mouthful of dip. But, it's just for lookin' through.

Dr Ford spits into a clear shot-glass and holds it up to the light..."It's not for eating, it's just for looking through!"

And that's all I have to say about that.
