As this is being written, the USA and Russia are locked into a war by proxy over a bit of 2022 geography labeled 'Ukraine'.
The first problem with Ukraine of yesterday is that we then have to define what is meant by 'yesterday', because chronology keeps changing its geographical definition of 'Ukraine'.
But the same is true of what is meant by the definition of the name 'Russia'. Its definition as a geo-political entity has also changed over the past one hundred years.
Then there is the USA.
It has repeatedly changed its geographical definition over the same period of time: it has expanded both territorially and in its geopolitical ranking among nations. Within the USA, which began as a confederacy in 1776 and then became a federal nation in 1789, there have been many shifts in both its internal and external orientations.
This present work began on the premise that for whatever the explanation, every human being who has ever lived on this Planet has been born to die within a relatively short period of time, and that means for a certainty, not exceeding 150 years. Each and every human being was born of a sperm entering an ovum and maturing in a uterus. We do not know of any scientifically proven biological exceptions. This definition of human life results in a conclusion that no individual human being is superior to any other human being within the definition of human beings as stated above.
Within this framework we then began to examine the issue of freedom of speech and expression, which incorporates all means of delivery whether it be in person, broadcast by amplification with a loud hailer; radio waves; digitally, and/or in print.
It is within the scope of this framework that we then began to examine the claims made by some human beings that they have a superior right to limit or modify freedom of expression by other human beings. When those claiming superior right have been resisted, force has been resorted to in order to compel the individuals who have not willingly entered into individual contracts with other individual human beings to enact some form of mass governance.
When this issue is extended into the Twentieth Century we encounter a man by the name of John Reith whose 1924 audacity to claim superiority over British broadcasting, has now been echoed by Alejandro Mayorkas of the US Department of Homeland Security with his naming of Nina Jankowicz. They brazenly claim the right to decide in Reithian terminology what is right and what is wrong when it comes to exercising freedom of speech and expression.
It is just as ludicrous as the idea that human beings can be born by any other means other than by sperm plus ovum brought to delivery by a uterus. Of course, anyone can play around with words and definitions, but in the real world it takes a male and a female to create another human being who will then die within a short period of time as defined by 'Nature'. This Planet and other planets and this universe and other universes will all continue to exist just as they existed before human beings came along.
But now we are currently living on a Planet where individuals and groups of individuals are all screaming at each other in an accusatory manner for "not telling the truth". It's as if 'Nature' gives two hoots about whether anyone is lying. It makes no difference in the great scheme of things - whatever that 'scheme' is and how 'large' that 'scheme' is - if it even has any dimensions, or if there is even a 'scheme'.
So, we are dealing with the 'yesterdays' that affect those who are alive today, and the individuals whose lives in those yesterdays actually resulted in actions, rather than claimed actions. which affect us as individuals today.
In other words, we are naming those individuals and identifying those dates and those places, but what we are not doing is engaging in mass accusations and wild and wooly conspiracy stories of any sort.
This process takes time and that is why we are currently taking time to create the next precursory chapter in this book - which is primarily about the lives of three individual human beings.
