Where SNOPES media outlet shows it is a global banking 1% FAKE right wing player is how it works hard to protect TRUMP from being the same global banking player as REAGAN/BUSH----only now Trump joins both neo-liberalism to neo-conservatism----to become that HITLER FASCISM.
SNOPES BEING THAT GLOBAL BANKING PLAYER HIDING THE FACT THAT A TRUMP IS MOVING FORWARD TO HITLER FAR-RIGHT WING AUTHORITARIAN FASCISM.
'Were the Nazis Socialists?
We look into the burning (at least for some) question of whether members of the National German Socialist Workers' Party were accurately classified as "socialists".

So, of course the NAZIS were not socialists any more than Trotsky, Sartre and Foucault, any more than Sanders, Stein, Ellison, Turner. All global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS are doing during far-right global corporate capture of a sovereign nations' economy and government is capturing BOTH SIDES OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM with 5% freemason/Greek players.
We are told HITLER was that creative arts 5% player tied to cultural arts trade guilds. Medieval trade guilds as we educate always worked for patronage from GLOBAL BANKING 1% and OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS.
Below we see that global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS' capture of LEFT WING POLITICS to a corrupted version of REAL left social and communal political and economic structures. These organizations are controlled by global 1% and their 2% FAKE ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT player pretending to work for 99% of workers when they work for global corporations maximizing profits by enslaving 99% of workers black, white, and brown citizens.
Workers World Party
The Workers World Party (WWP)
is a communist, extreme left-wing political party in the United States. The history of the Workers World Party is they were formed by Sam Marcy and his followers in about 1959 when they left the Socialist Workers Party (SWP). The SWP is Trotskyist, and as the Trotskyists were not friendly to the Stalin-era Soviet Union, the SWP opposed the 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary. Sam Marcy and his followers supported the invasion. Marcy led his followers out of the SWP and started their own political party. The Workers World Party has been known to take the most extreme positions that even most other U.S. communist parties will not take: they were the only U.S. communist party to openly defend the Tiananmen Square massacre by the Chinese government, and the North Korean regime of Kim Jong-un, and one of the few to openly defend the regime of Slobodan Milosevic in Yugoslavia. The WWP is often characterized as hardline Stalinist, which is ironic given their Trotskyist roots.

Who killed Roland Barthes? Maybe Umberto Eco has a clue.
By Michael Dirda August 23, 2017
On Feb. 25, 1980, the celebrated French literary critic Roland Barthes was struck by a laundry van while crossing the street in Paris, later dying of his injuries. In August that same year, the Bologna train station was blown up by Italian terrorists, killing 85 people. Two months afterward, French Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser strangled his sociologist wife, Hélène, supposedly in a fit of madness. The following May, Socialist Party candidate François Mitterrand beat incumbent Valéry Giscard d’Estaing to be elected president of France.
“The Seventh Function of Language,”
by Laurent Binet (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
These are all, as far as history is concerned, discrete events. But could they actually be connected? What if Barthes — an authority on semiology, the study of signs and symbols — had discovered a linguistic secret of immense power, one for which people would kill? The pioneering structuralist Roman Jakobson had famously promulgated six functions to language, but he hinted at the possible existence of a seventh, one in which words acquired the persuasive force of incantations or magic spells. If a speaker knew how the seventh function operated, he or she could convince people of anything at all. One could potentially rule the world.
Like Umberto Eco’s conspiracy classic, “Foucault’s Pendulum,” or Zoran Zivkovic’s “Papyrus Trilogy,” Laurent Binet — a professor of French literature in Paris — has produced an intellectual thriller that will be catnip to serious readers. While it contains Bulgarian assassins, Japanese ninjas, a beautiful Russian agent, French politicians and several male prostitutes, its main characters are prominent European philosophers and cultural theorists, including Eco, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Julia Kristeva and Philippe Sollers.
In the wake of Barthes’s “accident,” Jacques Bayard — a member of the French police’s intelligence service — is ordered to look into the case. Why? Primarily because just before Barthes was run over, he attended a quiet lunch with Mitterrand (which is true). Secondarily because the victim’s keys, wallet and papers somehow went missing (also true). When Bayard asks if the critic had enemies, Foucault explodes:
“ ‘Of course! . . . All he had were enemies: the reactionaries, the middle classes, the fascists, the Stalinists, and, above all, the rancid old critics who never forgave him!’
“ ‘Forgave him for what?’
“ ‘For daring to think! For daring to question their outdated bourgeois ideas, for highlighting their vile normative functions, for showing them up for what they really were: prostitutes sullied by idiocy and compromised principles!’ ”
Realizing that he is out of his element, Bayard recruits help from a young academic named Simon Herzog, who not only understands words such as “normative,” but can also employ semiology to make amazing Sherlock Holmes-like deductions. Together they turn over Barthes’s apartment, search for a particular male prostitute at a crowded steam bath and study the crowd at the great critic’s funeral — but they never notice the black automobile that follows them everywhere or the workmen and police officers with missing fingers. Before long, as in many golden-age mysteries, various characters start to die while mumbling enigmatic words such as “Sophia,” “Elle sait” and “Echo.” None means what it seems.
Eventually, through a lead given by literary theorist Tzvetan Todorov, our two investigators make their way to Bologna, home of Eco, then merely a professor of semiology (though already thinking about what will become “The Name of the Rose”). There they learn more about a shadowy, centuries-old organization, a kind of intellectual version of “Fight Club,” at which people from all walks of life debate philosophical questions. Winners gain immense prestige, but the cost of losing is high. At one particularly erudite confrontation, the movie director Michelangelo Antonioni is pitted against an unprepossessing old woman; still another requires the group’s mysterious leader, known as the Great Protagoras, to face an upstart challenger.
The quest to identify Barthes’s murderer and discover the seventh function of language eventually takes Bayard and Herzog to an international conference at Cornell University. Besides all the French hotshots we’ve already met, attendees include Noam Chomsky, Paul de Man, Gayatri Spivak, Hélène Cixous, John Searle and Camille Paglia. Having been in graduate school at Cornell about this time, I can testify to the accuracy of Binet’s descriptions of the university and Ithaca, N.Y. One of my own dissertation advisers, Jeffrey Mehlman, makes a brief appearance, as does the ebullient Morris Zapp, the protagonist of David Lodge’s hilarious academic comedy “Small World.”
Before long, this Cornell section zeros in on an intense controversy between Searle and Derrida (based on fact), but it also features several steamy sex scenes and an hallucinatory Walpurgisnacht that blends a witches’ sabbath with “The Hound of the Baskervilles.” And still there’s more action to come: Did I mention the Red Brigades? The events in Venice during carnival? The election night revelations in Paris?
Like “HHhH,” Binet’s post-modernist novel about the assassination of Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich, “The Seventh Function of Language” doesn’t just tell a story. Binet is also exploring the relationship between fiction and reality. His opening sentence proclaims that “Life is not a novel”; he sometimes interjects his own first-person thoughts — “I wish Anthony Hopkins would reread this passage for us” — and his creation Simon Herzog periodically wonders if he might be a fictional character. To my mind, Binet doesn’t really do enough with these familiar metafictional tropes, and he’s much better at satire and suspense.
Still, such a small reservation hardly matters when there’s so much fun to be had in “The Seventh Function of Language,” compellingly brought into English by Sam Taylor. Foucault, and Sollers, in particular, come across as wildly comic figures. What’s more, Binet’s alternate — or possibly secret — history hints that there just might be more to the rise of Barack Obama than even Donald Trump could have imagined.
As we discuss often whether talking of GERMANY, USSR, CHINA-----or MOVING FORWARD CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA----global banking 1% always pretend to be installing economic and societal policies for social benefit when the goals are creating the simplest way to seize public assets. Trotsky as that global banking 5% player pushed communal property just to have a reason to seize privately owned property under the pretense of helping workers knowing that a STALIN was waiting in the wings to steal all that communal 99% of wealth.
Remember, REAL left social and communal economic structures SHUN INDUSTRIAL economies because it is IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE REAL LEFT SOCIAL/COMMUNAL economies in a hyper-hierarchy ----hyper-competitive----hyper-fascist industrial economy. Trotsky knew USSR was being transformed to GREAT LEAP FORWARD INDUSTRIALIZATION----as did MAO in his GREAT LEAP FORWARD----as did HITLER in his pretense at creating communist structures that would be PRO-WORKER.
The last thing our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE would do today as MOVING FORWARD moves towards that STALIN/HITLER---is think we can pull anything together as COMMUNAL. Our MENNONITE/AMISH communities that were REAL LEFT SOCIAL/COMMUNAL SOCIETIES are being killed in MOVING FORWARD.
'ME TRYING TO CONVINCE MY FRIENDS WE SHOULD BUY A VERY BIG PLOT OF LAND AND START A COMMUNITY'.
Nothing makes our 99% WE THE PEOPLE more disgusted with INTELLECTUALS than these kinds of academic rantings done only to create FAKE ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT POLITICAL groups all tied to being far-right wing global banking corporate fascism........there is not such thing as LEFT INDUSTRIAL COMMUNISM
So, let's return to that source of global banking FREEMASON STAR JAMES BOND 007 politics that surfaced during WEIMAR GERMANY as the spying and surveillance behind installing FAKE ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT into all political groups both right wing and left wing to corrupt all real 99% WE THE PEOPLE protest movements.
'Trinity College is a private liberal arts college in Hartford, Connecticut'.
'It is based on the signature of an actual spy that worked for Queen Elizabeth I. His name was John Dee. He was born in 1527, studied at St. John’s College, and founded Trinity’s College. Thanks to his knowledge in math and astronomy, he was contacted by the Queen herself, who required his services to select her coronation date. In the letter he sent back, he signed with an strange symbol: two circles and what seems to be an elongated seven.
There are several possible meanings for this signature; some say it may refer to “being the eyes of the queen” (thus involving some spying affair), while some simply opt to think the message behind this symbol is “for your eyes only”. But for the sake of this question, we will stick to the first one this time. So far we have a spy working for the Queen of England who's known as 007, just like in the movies. But another interesting fact that completes the bond between these two characters is that John Dee pre-dated the invention of both fast cars and the martini cocktail, things we can easily relate to when talking about James Bond. With all this features in common, it is hard to think that Ian Fleming could have engineered his character not based on John Dee'.

10 Facts You Didn't Know About Trinity College Dublin
Updated: 9 February 2017
Trinity College Dublin is Ireland’s oldest high-level educational institution, and is best in terms of rankings. Founded in 1592, it has produced some of Ireland’s best-known literary personalities – like Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett – as well as political figures such as Theobald Wolfe Tone, Henry Grattan and President Mary Robinson. But this prestigious university still holds some secrets.
It wasn’t Ireland’s first university
Although often referred to as Ireland’s oldest university, Trinity wasn’t the first established in Ireland. In 1311, Pope Clement V was petitioned by the then Archbishop of Dublin to issue a papal grant for Dublin’s first university to be built. The Medieval University of Dublin was established in 1320, but suffered from a lack of funds throughout the next two centuries and disappeared during the Protestant Reformation.

It began as a monastery
Trinity College was established on the grounds of a former Catholic monastery – namely the Augustinian Priory of All Hallows – that had been disbanded by King Henry VIII as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries. In 1592 the Archbishop of Dublin at the time, Adam Loftus, and several others requested a royal charter from Queen Elizabeth I to create the university there, in order to train new clergy ministers and strengthen the Protestant Reformation.
It wasn’t always in the city centre
Though now at the heart of the city, at the time of its founding Trinity College was actually located outside and to the east of the walled city of Dublin. As the population grew and it developed into the capital, the city limits spread rapidly. During the 18th century redesign of Dublin, the surrounding areas of Dame Street, Westmoreland Street and D’Olier Street were established through the widening of formerly narrow, medieval streets.

It was intended as the first of many colleges of the University of Dublin
Archbishop Loftus was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge and hoped to create a similar collegiate model in Dublin, down to naming the first college after his beloved alma mater. But while the University of Dublin did expand greatly over the century following its inception – thanks to grants from the then Parliament of Ireland, conveniently based directly opposite the campus – no other constituent colleges were ever established.
Its student body was split by Ireland’s rebellion against the UKIn spite of its connection to the Protestant Reformation in Ireland, several prominent Irish nationalists were Trinity College graduates. Theobald Wolfe Tone led the 1798 rebellion and is seen as the father of Irish republicanism. He died aged 35 in a Dublin prison. Robert Emmet led another rebellion against British rule in 1803, for which he was executed on charges of high treason. Politician Henry Grattan campaigned for legislative freedom for the Irish Parliament, while the first president of Ireland, Douglas Hyde, was yet another Trinity graduate.

The Catholic Church banned its members from attending Trinity for nearly 100 years
Trinity College opened up attendance to Catholics in 1793, during the Emancipation. However, even after they were permitted entry to the college, non-Anglicans were still prohibited from gaining positions of prestige within the university – such as becoming a scholar, fellow or professor – for another eighty years. Just prior to these rules being removed, the Catholic church banned Catholics from studying at Trinity in 1871. The ban lasted until 1970.
Its students are afraid to pass under the campanile
The iconic granite campanile – or bell tower – in Trinity College’s front square was added in 1853, standing over 100 feet tall. Tourists flock to this picturesque monument facing the college’s front gate, but students are somewhat more cautious, due to a superstition that states that any student who is unfortunate enough to pass underneath it while the bell is tolling will fail their college exams. On graduation day, a celebratory walk under the campanile is a rite of passage.
It has several of its own urban legends
There is a long-standing rumour that Trinity College ‘scholars’ – students who are selected based on a special set of examinations and given special treatment, such as free city centre campus accommodation – are, by an old law, still entitled to ask for either a glass of brandy or a pint of Guinness – depending who you ask – during their exams. Another version of the mythical law specifies that said student must be wearing their sword at the time.
It has a copy of every book printed in Britain and Ireland
The library at Trinity is entitled – due to its status as a legal deposit library – to at least one copy of every publication, free of charge, that is published in Ireland. It is also entitled to any book published in the UK upon request. Established at Trinity in 1801, legal depository status has earned the library a stock of over five million books, mostly held off campus but available to order. Trinity alumni continue to have the right to use this incredible service after graduation.
Its students have unlimited access to the Book of Kells
Trinity College students have another cultural advantage in that they can view the Book of Kells – aka ‘Ireland’s finest national treasure’ – free of charge any time they like. The ancient, illustrated manuscript containing the four gospels has been on display in the college’s Old Library since 1661. Entry to view it costs members of the public a fee from €9 upwards, but Trinity students visit for free.
All these public policy are critical to 99% WE THE PEOPLE because they explain how a stable, lawful sovereign nations is turned to a FAILED STATE filled with far-right global corporate fascism in only a few decades. The institutions we are told to trust are corrupted in MOVING FORWARD TO FAR-RIGHT AUTHORITARIAN CORPORATE FASCISM with goals of NEW WORLD ORDER.
When we ask how can a HARVARD IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSITY come to IVY LEAGUE universities as they did a few decades and DECLARE American politics DEAD-----telling these US universities that only INTERNATIONAL AND GLOBAL CORPORATE POLITICS AND LAW exist MOVING FORWARD-----this is the structure ------TRINITY COLLEGE installed in medieval 1500-1600s became central in graduating those 5% to the 1% freemason/Greek players trained to be ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT ROBBER BARON fraudsters----civil unrest/civil war promoters creating SOCIETAL FADS.
This is what filled Western and Eastern Europe in early 1900s as global banking 1% were MOVING FORWARD WW2-----destruction of civil society just to sack and loot 99% of citizens' wealth and property holdings.
THERE ARE REAL LEFT SOCIAL AND COMMUNAL ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL STRUCTURES---NONE OF THEM ARE TIED TO INDUSTRIAL SOCIETIES. ANY PROMOTION OF SOCIAL AND COMMUNIST POLITICS IN INDUSTRIAL SOCIETIES IS -----FAR-RIGHT WING AUTHORITARIANISM WITH GOALS OF KILLING 99% OF WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens/workers.
'Justifying this, he indicated that the organization was committed to supporting Clinton in order to take "an anti-fascist position" against Donald Trump'.

Bernie Sanders and Trump are that same global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS players ----electing either one MOVES FORWARD same goals of ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES using far-right authoritarian MARXISM to kill all European/US government, societal structures, quality of life.
As in WEIMAR GERMANY and every nation in Europe back in WEIMAR PERIOD -----the far-right wing always attaches itself to left social progressive Democratic Party structures to corrupt REAL left wing policies always calling themselves FAR-LEFT---
Is it really “Our Revolution”?
September 13, 2016
Daniel Werst writes about a launch meeting for Bernie Sanders' "Our Revolution" in New Orleans and what it reveals about the new organization.
PAUL FLECKENSTEIN'S recent article provided a valuable analysis of the "down-ballot" strategy that Bernie Sanders has supported in his newly launched non-profit organization Our Revolution ("Taking down the revolution?").
I attended the kickoff night meeting for Our Revolution in New Orleans, and I believe the debate that took place among participants connects directly to the criticisms raised in Fleckenstein's article.
On August 24, staff, volunteers and supporters from Sanders' campaign for the Democratic nomination organized local meetings across the U.S., inviting contacts and friends of friends from their mailing lists and activist networks to join this new political organization. Each meeting tuned in to watch a LiveStream broadcast of Bernie Sanders giving a speech to a small audience of supporters in Vermont about his goals for influencing politics after losing to and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
The New Orleans Our Revolution meeting was made up of about 20 people, most of whom had been strong supporters of Sanders' campaign.
Virtually all of the attendees spoke heatedly before the meeting began about their anger at Hillary Clinton's politics and discussed different opinions about Sanders' endorsement.
Before Sanders' speech, we had time for a few introductions, and Aaron, who was leading the meeting, asked for an informal poll: "Who considers themselves a socialist?" A majority of the room raised our hands, including the speaker, who explained that he was a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)--and later that he was inviting people to join that organization as well as Our Revolution.
But when we began discussing Hillary Clinton, Aaron made clear that the position of Our Revolution was already decided by the central leadership from the Sanders campaign, and not subject to debate by its membership, which was just about to be formed. Justifying this, he indicated that the organization was committed to supporting Clinton in order to take "an anti-fascist position" against Donald Trump.
MANY SW readers will have heard or read about what Sanders said in his kick-off speech. While this speech paid homage to mass struggles of U.S. history like the civil rights movement and the struggle for women's voting rights, the meat of the address made clear that the focus of Our Revolution would be centered on supporting the election campaigns of around 100 selected candidates for local, state and congressional office.
This is the "down-ballot" campaign strategy. Sanders' speech did not explain at all what campaign promises these candidates would be expected to make. It was clear that at least the vast majority of them would be running in the Democratic Party, but this issue was never openly discussed. There was no discussion of the existence of Green Party or the fact that many of Sanders' own supporters have come out in support of the Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein since the primaries ended.
Candidates marked as "progressive" by Our Revolution have been chosen and will be chosen without any open debate by the membership. Incidentally, while you can donate $10 or, if you have it handy, $1,000 to Our Revolution or go to one of its meetings (the New Orleans organizer suggested vaguely that the group might hold meetings once a month here), there is no formal list of members, rules for membership or rules for making any decisions by members' votes.
The results of this undemocratic selection process were clear the day after the official launch on August 25. Our Revolution sponsored a public meeting in Albany, New York, to support selected "progressive candidates" in various elections in the state. The organization invited Mike Derrick to attend.
Derrick is the Democrat in a three-way race for a congressional seat in the upstate 21st district. He is running against sitting Republican Elise Stefanik and Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello. He was also a registered Republican voter until 2015, when he switched registrations for this campaign.
Our Revolution refused to allow the Green Party candidate to speak to its members and supporters, despite the fact that he won 11 percent in the last election and is campaigning for "a $15 an hour living wage, single-payer health care, a 100 percent renewable energy grid, a massive government public works program to get us to full employment, and the need to end our imperial wars." The organization told Funiciello he was banned from attending because his campaign was "aggressive and divisive."
THE CRITICISM of the down-ballot strategy can be summed up in a few points. As Fleckenstein wrote, "Sanders and his organization want to transform a pro-corporate party that is structured to stop such efforts." Attempting to change the party "from within" means proving loyalty to it--avoiding criticism even if it is factually and politically deserved in order to convince people to vote for Democratic candidates.
This issue came up in our local meeting when one participant, who indicated he planned to safe-state vote for Stein, argued that in a two-party system, radicals have no choice but to enter one of the parties and transform it to support their political demands.
JILL STEIN AND GLOBAL GREEN CORPORATION PARTY IS THIS SAME FAKE LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE WITH THE SAME ONE WORLD OUR REVOLUTION GOALS AS CLINTON/OBAMA/SANDERS. WE MUST FORCE GLOBAL 5% POLS AND PLAYERS OUT OF OUR LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATIC PARTY----NO THIRD OR FOURTH PARTY WILL BE REAL LEFT.
Focusing on lower-level elections means reducing debate about seriously changing the system since individual legislators and state and local politicians don't have the power to demand major reforms such as universal publicly funded health care, major tax increases on the rich or the disarmament of the police.
Meanwhile, working as a support group within the Democratic Party while the existing leadership is in power means that seriously criticizing the party's candidates and policies will lead to a backlash against the support group or its "progressive" Democratic politicians.
Therefore, there are major incentives to tone down demands and support the decisions of the party leaders. As Keeanga Yamahtta-Taylor put it, there is a "price of admission" to being in the Democratic Party.
The central political issues touched on in Sanders' speech were college tuition costs and health care.
On tuition, he assured viewers that Democratic leaders are now "talking about" creating free tuition to public colleges. The idea was not even acknowledged that state governments, many of them Democratic, have been rapidly raising college tuition for several decades, and this is not likely to be reversed due to verbal promises in an awkward moment during a presidential election. Governors, legislatures, university presidents and indeed Hillary Clinton are unlikely to willingly hand billions of dollars back to students.
Sanders insisted in his speech that the 2016 Democratic platform is the "most progressive ever" and dismissed those who suggest it will not be followed. He did not comment on the many planks in past Democratic platforms that have been ignored. Nor did he comment on how the bureaucratic drafting process was used to block planks he proposed against fracking and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
On health care, Sanders first acknowledged that Clinton does not support single-payer public health care funding. (In fact, she openly mocked his supporters for believing in it.) But he told viewers of his speech that Clinton has "agreed" with him to double federal funding for community primary health care clinics. And he concluded positively that this would lead to virtually universal "primary" health care access.
This kind of political promise means demanding that activists across the U.S. give up our demands and accept the dubious promise of much smaller reforms. First, we are supposed to accept the validity of non-binding promises in an election against everything we know about Clinton's position on health care.
A few years ago, patients and activists were outraged when Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, a close ally of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic leadership, suddenly shut down six of the 12 public mental health clinics in the city. Here is a case where, with lost state funding and damage from years of decreased service, the promised doubling of federal money for clinics would not even repair the harm of recent cutbacks, even if the promise is kept.
This is not a promise meant to improve public health care resources. It is a fig leaf for Clinton's actual support for private insurance companies, private hospital chains, and private pharmaceutical corporations that profit off of sick people.
At the same time that Our Revolution is backing Democratic candidates, a memo was leaked from the office that runs Democratic Congressional campaigns in which top staff explained confidential guidelines for how to handle Black Lives Matter activists. The November 2015 memo urged candidates to agree to meet with activists in small groups if invited, but to avoid appearing at large public meetings. It continued, "Don't offer support for concrete policy positions."
SANDERS HAS gone from calling for substantial reforms and disrupting the phony election debate to working as a salesman for Hillary Clinton's campaign. This logic is built into joining the Democratic Party. When he recently appeared on Meet the Press, he repeated the ridiculous promise that Clinton would for example "be making public colleges and universities tuition free."
Working for Democratic candidates out of party loyalty and fear of the Republicans means sacrificing more than "purity" as some suggest of radicals. It means agreeing in effect that it's necessary to lie for them.
And the support strategy means demanding that voters and supporters give up the opportunity to criticize and debate. The down-ballot strategy has been attempted by a string of liberal groups such as Democracy for America, the Progressive Congressional Change Committee and Progressive Democrats for America.
These organizations are inevitably top-down. Member support is appreciated, but decisions are made by bureaucrats watching the campaigns and soliciting support from the sidelines. This is why these organizations have no serious political discussions, constantly ask their own supporters to overlook Democratic policies that serve only the 1 Percent, and function largely as mailing lists with little actual action.
Our side will need hundreds or thousands of the dissatisfied people and young activists who came to the launch meetings of Our Revolution in future struggles.
But the arguments Our Revolution is making to docilely add a little steam to some of the campaigns of the Democratic Party while making clearly unfounded promises and refusing to answer criticism--like that of the hundreds of Sanders' own delegates who protested at the Democratic National Convention, for instance--are not helpful.
The JAMES BOND 007 connection to TRINITY COLLEGE is tied to the study of semiotics-----that is the language of SYMBOLS---SIGNS-----CODES in language across all cultures and global languages.
Anyone reading today's THE SEVENTH FUNCTION OF LANGUAGE-----the 777 Club would be taken first back to our 1960s---70s civil rights movements----but those are tied to the same WEIMAR GERMANY pre-FASCIST movements leading to HITLER, STALIN, MAO, FRANCO.
All of this is simply methods of using language to WIN -----whether winning is POLITICS----ADVERTISING----SOCIETAL CHANGE MANUFACTURING.
So, TRINITY COLLEGE in Ireland and in US were the source of much corruption of all that is right wing left wing political movements.

'Seventh Function' Is A Postmodern Mashup Of Fact, Fiction And Philosophy'
August 1, 20177:00 AM ET Heller McAlpin
The Seventh Function of Language
by Laurent Binet and Sam Taylor
"Life is not a novel. Or at least you would like to believe so." That's how Laurent Binet opens his audacious second novel, an intellectual romp about the many ways language exerts power, particularly in politics and fiction.
The Seventh Function of Language spins a wild plot that begins with the (actual) death of literary critic Roland Barthes after being hit by a laundry van in Paris in 1980. With a lineup of characters plucked from the heavyweights of 20th century French linguistic and critical theory, including Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault, and a postmodern mashup of texts, facts, and falsities, the novel is a cunning, often hilarious mystery for the Mensa set and fans of Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose and Tom Stoppard's Arcadia.
It is also a fantasy that's perhaps less farfetched in France, in that it posits a world in which ideas and the intellectuals who debate them actually hold sway, even in politics — in this case, influencing the election of Francois Mitterand over the incumbent president, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, in 1981.
In Binet's first novel, HHhH, about the assassination of Nazi security chief Reinhard Heydrich by two Czech resistance fighters, he repeatedly interjected his authorial two cents, pointing out where he'd taken liberties with his material. Although generally hailed as a tour de force, some readers questioned the light approach to the Holocaust and Heydrich — known as the Butcher of Prague, one of the most heinous figures in history.
... the novel is a cunning, often hilarious mystery for the Mensa set and fans of Umberto Eco's 'The Name of the Rose' and Tom Stoppard's 'Arcadia.'
Few are likely to object to Binet's playful sendups of the abstruse semiologists in The Seventh Function. To aid in this jocular cause, he's created a delightful comic foil named Jacques Bayard, a philosophically challenged investigator charged by Giscard (as he's called in the novel) with recovering a document concerning "a matter of national security" stolen from Barthes immediately after the accident. The document, Bayard learns, spells out a powerfully persuasive, "magical or incantatory" seventh function of language supposedly only hinted at by Russian linguist Roman Jakobson in his pioneering essays on the structural analysis of language — a secret weapon that could help win elections or debates.
The investigator, perplexed by terms like locutionary, illocutionary, and perlocutionary acts, quickly realizes "that he understands nothing, or not much, about all this rubbish." He requisitions a young linguistics PhD candidate, Simon Herzog, as his translator and sidekick.
Simon is a whiz at reading "signs" about people in the manner of Barthes' seminal book of essays, Mythologies, extracting meaning from non-verbal details like scuffed shoes and the make of guns or cars. But despite his smarts, he's frequently distracted by his hots for the women he meets on the case, causing him to miss important clues, like a sack of dog biscuits at a star-studded linguistics conference in Ithaca, N.Y.
In addition to some challenging thickets of language theory, the novel is packed with drama — car chases, mutilations, suicide, graphic sex, and multiple murders (including the French Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser's strangulation of his wife, which actually did happen in 1980, though not for the reasons stated). There are Russian spies, Bulgarian assassins, Venetian thugs, Japanese saviors, a wily North African gigolo — Foucault's pendant! — and a secret debating society in which the stakes range from digital amputation to castration. Sam Taylor's deft translation encompasses heavy linguistic exegeses, political discussions, oratory duels, and even some puns, including echo and Eco.

Through all the hijinks, Binet's amiable academic does what he's been trained to do, analyzing the plot for "its narrative structures, its additives, its adversaries, its allegorical significance." Increasingly, Simon feels he's "trapped in a novel," and the pawn of a sadistic author, to boot. Hilariously, when he asks Bayard, "How do you know you are not living inside a work of fiction? How do you know that you're real?" the investigator replies, "Are you stupid or what? Reality is what we live, that's all."
The only goal of this book was to drag every corrupted political philosophy tied to that 5% global banking ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT PLAYER back in 1960s---70s----and back in pre-WEIMAR GERMANY/PARIS. A COMPLETE CORRUPTION OF ALL THAT IS LEFT recycled.
Satire aside, The Seventh Function, like HHhH, is underpinned by Binet's concerns with the workings of language and fiction. He brings his experience reporting about Francois Hollande's successful presidential campaign to this outlandish tale of political scheming, though he reminds us repeatedly that this is a novel filled with counterfactuals, including Derrida's gruesome demise nearly 25 years before his actual death. He also brilliantly infuses even his serious points with sly humor, as when Morris Zapp, a fictional philosophy professor from David Lodge's campus novel, Changing Places, turns up at the Cornell linguistics conference to argue that "The root of critical error is a naïve confusion of literature with life."
Like Nabokov's Lolita, this wonderfully clever novel can be enjoyed on multiple levels. But to fully appreciate its ingenious metafictional complexities, be prepared to do some Googling — at least, until an industrious scholar comes along to produce an annotated version.
