(Jun. 22, 2020) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. Miss Bernard invited Madam Shylock to explain anarchy to her new class at a private school somewhere in Volusia County, Florida, via Skype. Take it away, Madam Shylock.”

“Thank you, Roving, for such an in depth and informative introduction; I can’t remember ever having such platitudes showered upon me. Hello, Miss Bernard, and thank you for the invite; by the way, do you mind telling us why you left the government indoctrination center, I mean, the public school system?”

“Not at all and be more than glad to. You know, if more parents would take greater interest in modern-day textbooks, I mean, the way they rewrite history – out-and-out lies, mind you – maybe I would’ve stayed, but I just couldn’t take it anymore; besides, I got early retirement out of it.”


“Don’t get me started. Look, class, we have Madam Shylock with us today to explain the word ‘anarchy.’”

“What kind of class is this, anyway?”

“This is ‘The Political Science of Astronomy: 101.’”

“I didn’t know there was such a subject.”

“There wasn’t until Professor Zorkophsky made the connection between the vacuum of Deep Space and the vacuum of the Deep Swamp and their confederates.”


“Fellow travelers, as they used to say: BLM, ANTIFA and all the other usual suspects.”


“All those who do not embrace our Constitution, Madam Shylock; the class is yours.”

“Hello, class, now please pay attention: anarchy is emptiness. Many of us have been taught that space is a vacuum, but we’ve learned that what we thought was empty is actually filled to the brim with gravitational waves and other forms of energy, such as neutrinos and photons. I mean, just think about it. If you are in the middle of nowhere you may still see the faint glow of a quasar, and if that’s the case, then there’s something even in the middle of nothing.”

“Excuse me, Madam Shylock, but what has that got to do with the empty heads of the Dems and Dem substitutes?”

“Think of the carrot and the stick; after all, those empty brains expect something, but not what they envision, of this I assure you. They may think ‘utopia,’ but are they willing to subsidize the slacker, the lazy and the bums? I don’t think so. If the Black Lives Matter movement would change the name to ‘All Lives Matter’ and stress education, starting with reading, then maybe they’d get somewhere.”

“What good is reading?”

“First, being literate isn’t enough: you’ve got to read for a number of reasons.  One is to expand your vocabulary; another is to gain knowledge; and, thirdly – hopefully — reading will turn into an enjoyable lifetime hobby. There’s books for everyone, starting with the New Testament where the Golden Rule is taught.”

“Are the Dems and the BLM people as racist and dumb as they act?”

“Yes, I’m afraid they are. The supporters of the Klu Klux Klan – today’s  Dems — have never let up on harvesting votes from the plantation, which is why the Teachers’ Unions are such big supporters of the DNC. It’s like ‘You wash my back, I’ll wash yours.’ It’s a rigged system, just like county employees being represented by a union: the union and the employer are, in fact, one entity that work in conjunction with a common goal: maintain the status quo at whatever cost.”

“By any other name that would be a monopoly, wouldn’t it?”

“Yes, I’m afraid so. You see, governments are designed to reduce freedom while gaining power at every opportunity; that’s just the nature of the game; nothing personal, you understand: it’s just the way business is done.”

“Until Trump.”

“Which is why they want to get rid of him. Let me ask you this: what do you think would happen if the supporters of the BLM could read, if they would all sit down and read Tolstoy, Chaucer, Sir Walter Scott and Gibbons? Maybe, if only by osmosis, they would gain some smarts and common sense and know when they’ve been lied to. I think there wouldn’t be any Dems, don’t you?”

“But how dumb do you have to be? How racist can you possibly get to even consider if BLM makes a lick of sense?”

“It’s has nothing to do with smarts, or sense, or right vs. wrong, but it has everything to do with tearing-down the Constitution, by whatever means, starting with going after Trump.”

“How do the statues fit in the picture?”

“Mindless rants; a child’s tantrum; an exercise in stupidity if there ever was one. Ignorance always rules the mob; it’s what makes a mob so dangerous, by the way. A mob could accomplish more by staying home reading about modern farming methods than by looting and burning. “

“So why don’t they?”

“Good question, but the phrase ‘they know not what they do’ comes into play.”

“So forgive them, is that what you’re saying?”

“No way. You don’t forgive ignoramuses, sloth and dishonesty. ‘Thou shalt not steal’ does not condone looting; ‘Do unto others as you would wish done upon yourself’ does not let arsonists off the hook; and there’s no way to forgive animal cruelty under any conceivable circumstances, something that Muslims have no problem with.”

“I’m sorry, Madam Shylock, but class is about to end – the bell is about to ring — so could you conclude your talk, if you would, please?”

“Yes, Miss Bernard, I will. So the point that I wanted to stress is that stupidity is a very real and a very dangerous thing, that stupid people are lazy and expect something for nothing, and there are no better examples than those who whine about ‘reparations,’ which is nothing more than passing the blame onto others. Today’s Jews are not responsible for Muslims’ deaths in the year 1200 or the family of a North Korean soldier defecting, and no white person living today is responsible for slavery more than a century ago. I’m sorry, but these are a few examples of ‘Empty Brain Syndrome’ whose only cure is education. Thank you for inviting me to speak to you today.”

“Class, as you leave for your next subject, Madam Shylock will bestow a Good Sorcerer’s blessing upon any who would wish one.”

“Okay, that does it. Isn’t Skype convenient as all get-out? And so, on behalf of the crew, Madam Shylock and Miss Bernard, this is your Roving Reporter (RR) wishing you all a good night: Goodnight.

“Good show, crew. Burger time: my treat.”

Wonderful World” (2:10)
