  • Yes but negativity is now 30% of matter in motion on the planet, while if and when the war machine is dismantled the natural world of negativity would only be 10%.
    Plus and minus is with us at all times which is the secret of comedy of contradiction, and with the reading of the atomic chart, it is obvious that the unity and struggle of opposites causes change throughout the matter-in-motion.
    It is my estimate that the urge for unity---in our specie the femme factor, is slowly and universally causing the matter to congeil towards the harmony and joy or the plus sign, that is so missing with the aggressive negation of the negations that mainly prevail with out the functioning matriarchy. The better half, needs equal electing throughout society which would naturally return the rules of 50-50 econically, politically and religios to society.
    It is a fact that the material laws of the species harmony depends on the egalite' that the present male conquesting chauvinism of unjust wars, and illegal violence is so rudely interupting and discriminating against our species true joy and safety.
    Groucho had plenty to Grouch about in that sphere in his life time, and the continuing of path of pollution and extreme illegal violence is making all of us Grouchos for Marx in the every day misery that befalls our serching for happiness, that the U.S. Constitution says is our natural born right to do. End pollution wars, not endless wars for more pollution. Make Groucho happy even with the constitution for, by, and of the people, not to say anything about the air, land, water, and plants and animals. Viva the liberation path to the organic natural revolution.

  • Yes, telling about the goddamned party of No! we contend with these days---but we on the Left should take note of the fact that the Marx Bros films, as well as the Abbot and Costellos and especially most of the Three Stooges', were written by progressives! Remember the running anti-establishment themes in these movies, the humiliation of the stuffy rich characters----this was no accident. Most of them were the founding members of the Screen Writers Guild--many Communists, some Socialists or other social dems. We should all decalre that we are GROUCHO MARXISTS!
