A Broadcast Cut Off In Midstream


This morning I did a short, 5-minute broadcast on Periscope addressing the issue of corruption.

My father texted me afterward to inform me that the broadcast had been cut off in midstream.

The broadcast was prompted by two recent developments that concern me deeply, because they are nothing less than manifestations of corruption covered up by the institutions we depend on for justice:
  • The denial of a FOIA request to see the records on the Hillary Clinton investigation.
  • The dismissal of the DNC fraud lawsuit.

In my broadcast I urged people to fight back against corruption by getting an education, preferably an advanced education. An advanced education allows you to not only learn specific subject matter, but also — and perhaps more importantly — to think critically and communicate clearly.

I urged people to get a law degree, because the law is written and taught in such a way that it perpetuates a power gulf between the elite few who go to law school, and the rest of the people who can’t understand what the law actually says or how it affects their lives.

If you have a law degree, and your intentions are pure, you can fight for justice armed with the tools of the justice system.

There is no need to be an extremist.

Using the tools of the system, against those who would pervert it, is revolution enough.
