A quote: “More harm was done in the 20th century by faceless bureaucrats than tyrant dictators.” ~~ Dennis Prager

I’ll start with a story …


I’m a runner. You see, but you don’t. I’m all of a shade top to feet, walk no faster or slower, stooped and resigned.

I blend. When you need what you can’t get cuz, like me, you’re not entitled – you find me.

It’s how I trade to get what we need, ma & me. See. You know …

DON’T look at me! Just walk, a little ahead. Slower. They watch and you look too healthy, like you got meds you weren’t entitled to? They’ll know.

You need for pneumonia? TB? I can get. For a price. See.

I’m a runner.


Now, it’s your turn.

    The woman sits down across the table. Face too thin, too pale under the light make-up. Clothes a bit shabby, but still good enough to wear to the office. You hand her the cards to cut; no ring on her hand, but you can see the mark where it was. She looks in her late thirties.

    You deal the cards.

    It really doesn’t matter what you tell her. Anything to give her hope, a dream.

    She’s the fourth mark tonight. You’ll make your rent this week.

    78-year old man. Hip replacement. Non-smoker.

    Too old.


    I moved the page and picked up the next sheet.

    27-year old woman. Breast cancer. Non-smoker.

    I dug a little deeper. Social credit score: 70.


    I dug deeper. Declined the mandatory Critical Race Theory orientation while attending Baylor. Not good. Social media posts were mostly neutral towards the administration. No positive posts? Must be a closet subversive.


    I picked up the next page.

    Malenkov had become a member of the Politbureau after the war.Essentially, he was a typical office clerk and paper pusher. Such men can be the most dangerous of all if given any power. They’ll freeze and kill anything that’s alive if it oversteps its prescribed boundaries. ffrom Krushchev Remembers by Edward Crankshaw
