Chapter 24 War 

China had been making moves to take over Taiwan and in Hong Kong there was enforced chinese rule and there was also a border dispute with India that had been ongoing. The President of The USA Ronald Frump colloquially known as The Ronald. He was coming off a stunning electoral victory. Ronald had won a second term.

Roney had some strange logical thinking patterns at times, but he was no fool. His greatest leadership quality was decisiveness. He also followed through to make sure the job was carried out. 

He was a product of America at this time in history. Ronny Frump was the President for his time. At 73 Ronny was starting to show his age. That did not sink his titanic personality or hamper his ablies to rule a confused nation enveloped in a pandemic, and a fight with economic depression and racial inequality.

It was not a good time for the United States of America to go to war. However, as one well known economist once said, the cure for national economic depression is to wage war. The first signal of war was the expulsion of Chinese nationals from American soil. Donny had been given good advice. DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO GO NUCLEAR. We don’t want to lose any American cities. However Ronny had a reputation for not always taking advice.

The President had pressed hard for the readmission of Russian back into the G8 after Russia's expulsion for that country's actions in Ukraine some odd years before. He had won that point after the Prime Minister of Canada had softened his opposition to the proposal. In return for Canada’s agreement with the U.S.A. would allow an Chinese executive to be part of a prisoner exchange, two Canadians imprisoned in China for the executive held in Canada. The prisoner held in Canada was facing sedition charges in the United States. 

Roney was talking at a public rally, “I don’t like the Chinese, they started this, but Mark my words, America will finish it."

” China thinks We are weak but this is not true. We have weapons that the world has never seen before. We can make all the people in any city we choose disappear. Without touching the Infrastructure, Without touching the Infrastructure.”“We will use these weapons against China, If a peaceful solution cannot be found.” 

 It was a great rally for the political right in America. Nearly a million Americans were in attendance and nobody was social distancing. After the rally an elated Frump Marched off the stage. He heard a voice say. “Mr. President” “yes” It was Ian Vice, his press Secretary” 

“Sir you went off script again, I have asked you repeatedly not to endanger national security in that manner.”

 Ronny looked at Ian, a slender man in a blue suite. Whatever the thoughts ran through Frump's head at this moment, he chose to keep to himself, But he did speak,

“Ian you're fired.” 

 “Good Morning Google” said Tom, The voice from the speaker brought the news. “President Ronny frump died at 2 am this morning of a massive heart attack at home in his bed in the East Wing of the White House. The President who had just addressed a crowd of over a Million people on the grounds of the Washington Monument yesterday, was awake and conscious with his doctors and family present. The president was 74 years old."

  Tom let a thought slip through his brain. “Only the good dye young.”

Chapter 25 Black Lives Matter of "The Wall." (a work of fiction).

Copyright Phil Musgrave


Sam watching the News CNN was an addiction for him, and he understood very well that at eighty nine years old young people would see his life as lacking potential. Then again if black lives matter, why should not old people’s? He could understand that there were some deep emotional feelings around the world that inequity must be brought under control. Change was happening again in this world. There was more to this than black lives. It was more like a hunger to allow all lives to reach their full potentual. This mostly peaceful uprising all over the world could be a revolution. A hunger for justice. The reaction of the American government to bring in the army to quell demonstrations had been met with very negative opposition, the fear being the total loss of the democratic prosses. So the protests had continued for two weeks. “Was it.” Sam “thought “that as the world population grew people felt their lives were less significant.” 

Sam thought about childhood dreams, “I want to be a ball player, a truck driver, an engineer, policeman, fireman, pilot, Some people want to have a happy life with a home, a wife and a cottage. Sam had heard somewhere that at this time in history almost 70% of white Americans Had a home. and 43% of black Americans were homeowners. 

Sam was falling asleep, something he did more often since he was semi confined to his room because of the pandemic. Again he was looking for Bella and again he found her. As he pressed his head into her soft warm body, he asked, “why is my life not worth anything?” Bella answered in a strange way. “I cannot answer for the cruel acts of the people of your time. I only know my time and my world. Sam “ In your timeline things are going to change very fast there is much frustration with people feeling their lives are wasted.” “The virus has caused job loss and great disruptions in school based learning the ones at the bottom of the economic cycle single unemployed homeless men” will hurt the most.

What should be understood here Sam, is that people in your timeline are already changing the government. The police have a role to play in government, just like the Press, and even the banking system. You mess with the government too much there is the possibility of anarchy.” “That is why I am stuck in this timeline.
Where we live it is mostly in a virtual world. To get to this point in history because we first dismantled the real world shops to try to control this virus that only had a kill rate of 1.4% for the first time round in New York City. Of course we had five years of this stuff on and off, and because we did The economy went online and we got hyperinflation. The banks were unreachable and meaningless online shadows. Police forces were not only underfunded and ineffectual.” and we’re now only starting to regain our National Identity.”

 Fazer is talking to his daughter Emma on Zoom “ I told you not to go near the demonstrations. ” But Dad, some of Christopher's friends from the hockey team, were black and we marched in solidarity with them. “Look Emma” I don’t know where this is going. This refunding of the police is a very radical Idea. There may be trouble.

People have their living on hold right. now someone pressed the pause button. They are pent up and frustrated. We need to fix things in this world. Like Homelessness and job loss, having a safe place to live is where it all starts, but doing away with the police is not good.” “Dad they don’t want to do away with Police, We want a more Just and responsive police force. “Emma if you think about it you don’t really know where this is going, Police are what stand between us an anarchy.”

 “Dad, all good revolutions never had the answers in the beginning. The people just knew what they didn't want. No one knows what the ending is till you read through the whole book and you can’t skip a chapter because it won’t make sense.”
Fazer,“Emma I just don’t want any trouble”
“Fine Dad I won’t go to the marches anymore”
“Thanks Emma, that means something to me.
Now about that car of yours, you need a new piston?” “Yes I think that is what they said” “Just send me the bill”

Chapter 26 The Mask
A writing of fiction copyright Phil musgrave

 The Psychology, Philosophy and Politics of the Mask: a Lecture by Dr Seth Lambert recorded live, face to face without masks, at an unidentified academic institution. In the United States of America, April 21st 2021.

Tom was watching this Item on You Tube.
 Seth, “The first use of the mask was in ceremonial form as an attempt to change Identity. To become someone who you were not, maybe someone from a perceived spirit world that comes to animated life, if you watch old Westerns, like I do, you would think of it as a disguise or covering to make it hard to identify a person who is up to no good. 

The Wild Rag worn around cowboys or girls necks did have practical purposes in the dusty environment in which they did their jobs. Anyone working out door for an extended time might find this article of clothing useful. However the bank robbers of the old west used the Wild Rag for another purpose. Let us now examine another kind of mask, the mask of war paint worn by Indigenous peoples.

 It might be said that the warrior feels safer behind a mask, but modern combat soldiers wear grease paint to break up their face. Now if we look at the Joker in the Batman saga you sometimes see a very unhappy man with an exaggerated happy face painted on his own.

The Canadian Prime Minister appeared in Brown Face to sing a song. The mask is often used in drama and Opera. So at this point we will review some of the uses of the mask, camouflage, protection, to hide Identity, to give courage. The medical mask came into vogue in the 1960’s these are sturdy masks used to protect the face of operating room staff against infectious matter. We also have masks for welders and people using harmful aerosols. These masks will place in the category of safety equipment. The burka worn by some women of certain faith had a mask component to it.”

 “The mask did not come into fashion in it’s own right until the covid 19 pandemic . At this point in the lecture some woman's voice says “What does a three legged man walking down the beach sound like? '' A male voice answers, “Do Tell.” Female voice, “ flip, flip, flop. Male voice, “Cute!” This is what Tom had been watching for. It was what made this video's numbers go viral.

 Seth is taking charge “cut the chatter” “Of course,” Seth continues, “another kind of mask is as, I am masking my actions. we often find in primitive nation that war can mask genocide. This would not of course be the case in the U.S.A..
Speaking politically I think we have to be watching for certain cover ups. A reduction of civil liberties. Segregation of older people, high bank rate, and high personal debt, a lack of or the reduction in the quality of education offered to the poor. This last criteria would include access to the internet.

There one last thing to look for, this is what I will call blocking. This happens when a deliberate or incidental block is placed in the path of maximum human growth potential.” “This is 2021 every human life that does not contribute is a loss to society, However if that person is blocked from full participation, that is a crime.

 A person can be ostracized because they have pimples on their face and someone spreads a vicious rumor that said person has a contagion. I feel the mask is a symbol of a world in retreat.” The Idea of the social bubble group, is tribal and breaks down social, national and global accountability.” “The example of online banking is a poor one, I admit. I will use it anyway. Before the pandemic that is BC, Before COVID, people were already trying to avoid any contact with anyone who was sick. The mask was evident in the year 2019 although few people wore them. When there was even a whiff that COVID 19 was a menace. The Banks went about systematically closing branches. The food markets remained open and made a healthy profit. It looks to me like a deliberate collusion by the banks to close certain branches and encourage online banking. Online banking only works for those with access to the internet.”

 “Yesterday I was downtown using a machine, and some poor fella, I’ll call Bob, was talking through the door of the bank to a teller.” “This branch is closed,`` the teller said.” But said the man “I have this check from the Government and I don’t want it put on hold. Is the manager in? She used to help me with this.”” At this point in the lecture on all the laptop screens in the classroom appear to have Nothing but a large human eye.

 The lecture continues, Seth is speaking again only now he has someone beside him “you all remember that you signed an agreement about you person and your property.” “Well this is my friend Ava” she is here to show you just how unreal the internet is”

 Ave “hands up anyone who does online banking on the laptop they have with them today?” About twenty Hands Go Up. Ave “OK If you look at your screens you will see the eye has gone. Now If you check your bank balance you will see it is zero.

No worries I can put it all back again. I did this to show you that the internet is not real. Now if I was North Korea about to invade South Korea this might be a prelude to war. It would create the kind of disturbance that would render America impotent.” Tom now stops the YouTube video player. Chapter 27 is here

Chapter 27 Cody
a work of fiction copyright Phil Musgarve
The colony had done very well. The year 2023, it was December 24th. In the books there was no debt. All loans had been paid to the banks. Cody’s camp now included 150 acre of prime Ontario farm land. About George, Cody was no longer worried. Fan was a happy mother of three one of whom was returned to her from her parents. George and Fan had been High school sweethearts and had been together from the age of 13. Now Fan worked at the hospital and George was a farmer at the community farm, and dedicated husband.

The community had its own police force, fully armed but community based. The law of Ontario was for the most part the determining factor in criminality but the community had the first say.. 

Cody was addressing the early all faiths celebration of the holy months of the year although for the Christians Christmas was still a very important date on the calendar celebrations were extended to many faiths. Jewish people had their own Holy days and the Muslems went by a Lunar Calendar. So there a lot to parties to go to through the cold winter months

 This was a meeting of all the houses One elected person from each house “Well,” said Cody “Were not out of this mess yet. We must try and help the community we depend on. The community outside our own. That world is not a Happy one. The Great nation of America will, I hope, recover.” “We all know that We are mortal humans, and we have treated the virus but not cured it. It has become a matter of faith in more ways than one. I believe the treatment is what we use already, we must not wait for the cure.”

 Any great civilization falls, from within. lack of compassion, greed and fear, can tear communities apart. We must remember that our community was founded on social rejects. The people other people did not want. It has not been an easy love. This love has been hard. We are called by the Lord God to love every man. When we fail to do this the communities of mankind fall apart.

"So before dinner gets served I want to walk you through some recent history.” “This is not thankfully the history of our community, and we must not be smug about this. This is the history of our brothers who I want this community to help. This will be asking you this coming year to spread the love.”

"Love is not an easy word, Love must, without violence, overcome prejudice, greed, hatred and fear, It must be sharing, compassionate and kind. Most of all love understands that no man is more valuable than any other.” “So let us look at what this means. Our brothers ran away in fear from a virus that made people sick but did not always kill them. We stood our ground, not because we were better but because we had to. At the time we had nothing but each other.”

“The Banks were the first to run for cover Leaving the some elderly to line up outside the bank in the heat and cold some getting heat stroke or worse. Fear or greed made them insensitive. They forgot the meaning of the word customer.” “Older citizen were also left to die alone in homes for the elderly and nursing care” “The universities went online leaving their beautiful campuses sparsely populated.” “Sports all but disappeared.”

“Social groups were socially spaced And commercial real estate devalued. Everyone shopped online.” “This is the world of our brothers but it is our country too, and we need our country.” A tear rolled down Cody’s cheek as he said the last few words. “We must get the message out that it is the treatment not the cure that will work.” “If we fail our society will fail too.” “Merry Christmas Everyone”

It was Fan’s turn next she brought out The Cody Colonial Choir, to sing O Holy Night and Ave Maria. The choir had practiced since October.
