LESSON for July 9, 2021 – IS EVERYBODY HAPPY?

 

President Joe’s big adventure… vaccinating 70% of the Joneses of America by the Fourth of July… was a fail, less-then-epic but a fail, nonetheless.  So the President turned a page, took a page from his predecessor and, like Trump (and many others before) did so often before, declared the defeat to be a victory and presided over a Presidential celebration.

(Sort of like with the U.S. military in Afghanistan, but the book is hardly closed upon that grim fairytale… the Taliban, as most everybody predicted, are sweeping out of their caves and crevices, across the country and into Kabul, probably before the end of the year.  And then there will be massacres… Cambodian-style… and direct or indirect aid to terrorists who will eventually strike at soft targets in a soft America, as well as elsewhere in the soft West.  Probably not so spectacular or destructive as the nine-eleven – Osama bin Laden was not only a bloodthirsty fanatic, like just about everybody else in that part of the world, he was rich, besides – tho’ brutal and embarrassing nonetheless.  And then we will either have to go back cold, probably with no more than a handful of allies, or take our lumps while the enemy boogaloos at Bagram and serious players like the Russians and Chinese sit on the sidelines, take notes and eventually take the opportunities as they come.)

Well, decided President Joe and his supporters… a bipartisan bunch of plague-hating (sometimes converted) vaccine loving politicians, almost all medical professionals, Big Education, Big Money, Big Media…let’s just declare victory.  Keeping the bribes and sweepstakes in play, fomenting excuses for why the existing vaxxes haven’t been declared safe for children, fudging a few little numbers here and there (and a few Big Numbers, like adjudicating America to be safe when the ranks of the single-dosed reaches that seventy percent Nirvana… which it will, by and by… and conveniently failing to mention that the new Delta variant, newer Gamma and really new Lambdas require, at the least, a double shot of the government’s love) will more or less enable Don Jones to get by – and without having to deal with the real reason why so many refuse to get shot and tell the pollsters so; that they are doing what President Donald J. Trump (ol’ 45) told them to do. 

No matter that America’s favorite Ex got the plague himself, then got vaxxed and said so on assorted occasions (see the DJI of two weeks ago) – his conspiracy-addled legions have pivoted themselves.  Some may believe that their hero has been secretly dispatched or locked up by the Deep State and replaced with a duplicate Ex (perhaps an actor or one of those reptile-people out of the old TV series “V” or cinematic exposés like “They Live”); others may assert that the democrats hold some sort of inescapable hammerlock upon Mister Trump – urination videos, tax fraud documents that will put Junior and Eric in cages with dark, bestial felons forever, affidavits from loose elderly women who were young in the Reagan administration.  Pick your poison.  The half-hearted pro-vaxxing statements issuing from Djonald’s mouth are just more theatre to the die-hard POTheads… and die hard they will, defending freedom to the bitter end.

So, unless and until the Delta, Gamma and Lambda plagues are succeeded by an even more lethal, vaxx-proof and communicable Omega, look for the issue to quietly go away for awhile, maybe resurfacing when the doctors decide that it’s time to break out the booster shots.  The MAGA constituency will die off like Brazilians and from-India Indians, those Dons as obey Science and the law will accept a few restrictions on travel and, for President Joe, there may be a plum in the pile of manure inasmuch as a viable percentage of midterm and 2024 Republicans will be sick or dead when the time to vote rolls round.

 

 

Now, in the course of compiling the Lessons of the past two weeks with their Recommendations (that Joe dangle a pardon in front of the nose of Team Trump in exchange for a theatrical – if obviously insincere – personal appeal to his base to line up and get shot for the country’s sake and that Immigration and Justice officials initiate an upgraded bracero program to allow economic migrants from Mexico and the Northern Triangle failed states of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to come in for a designated period of time to do the hard, dirty and low-paying jobs that Don Jones, having been quarantined with a generous income may no longer wish to do) we repeatedly trod across old polls and publications to the effect that America was a happy place, but not too happy.  So in the spirit of celebration… bogus, perhaps, but sweet with the smoke of burning documents… we’re going to go back and look at a few of the sort of statistical measurements of the past and see how they have fared over the past five years – years in which the average household income of Mr. and Mrs. Jones and the little ones rose from 59 to 75k while the net worth of the millionaire and billionaire class soared; Mister Jeff Bezos paid an estimated one percent tax, according to pro publica

(There have been rumours from the likes of Forbes that Jeffy has already passed the two hundred bil benchmark (212 in fact).  But what’s a paltry few billions amount to – these days?)

In the spirit of patriotic celebration, let’s kick off the upgrade and review with findings by assorted groups such as the galloping ghouls of Gallup, the United Nations and Big Academia, purporting to measure how happy denizens of 150 countries, more or less may be.

What, the Gallup pollsters deem, makes Don Jones happy?

There are six key criteria, they contend… GDP per capita, Social support, Healthy life expectancy, Freedom to make life choices, Generosity and Perceptions of corruption

 

Is everybody happy?

Hell, no!

Is Don Jones better off than he was last year, or the year before relative to Joneses in other nations across and along the globe?

Meh…

 

The 2021 World Population Review, which uses the same Gallup data as the World Happiness Report (which current year version has not been issued, of yet) places the United States at 18th, up a smidgen from 19th in 2020 (that election, perhaps?).  We’re just ahead of the Czech Republic, just behind Germany and, as the more detailed 2020 Gallup quotients display, better than average at our GDP, worse at perceptions of corruption.

(See a list of the 2021 aspirants by rank, only, as Attachment One.  See the full world (well, most of it, it’s proven more or less impossible to get a straight answer from the North Koreans as to whether the people are happy) ranked on the select six above, then alphabetized as Attachment Two.

And the winner… the happiest place on earth, so to speak…

It’s Finland.

No great surprise here, the Finns also took down the 2020 title and, to nobody’s particular surprise, they were followed by Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden.  All of them small, cold countries (the Netherlands is, admittedly, more damp than frigid), all of them promulgating a watered down Socialist political and economic model.

The worst country in the world?  That would be Afghanistan… even while the United States was on hand to offer some minimal protection.  Once withdrawal is complete and the Taliban are in charge… well, how low can you go?

The next six worst are all in Africa… all poor, climatically and virally devastated and suffering from varying degrees of criminal and political violence.  And then we come to Yemen.

 

The World Happiness Report, compiled and published every year (except when they don’t) had a most unusual origin… the tiny Himalayan nation of Bhutan.  (See statement, Attachment Three),  Perhaps not coincidentally, Bhutan also played an outsized role in President Biden’s climate change summit… the Bhutanese have exerted moral influence far beyond their size, economic or military strength and Prime Minister Lotay Tshering was front and center at the Summit… see his statement by Tshering reprinted as Attachment Four.)

Bhutan’s efforts to boost GNH have led to the banning of plastic bags and re-introduction of meditation into schools, as well as a “go-slow” approach toward the standard development path of big loans and costly infrastructure projects.

The country’s path-breaking effort to make growth humanly meaningful has drawn considerable attention elsewhere: Harvard Medical School has released a series of happiness studies, while British Prime Minister David Cameron has announced the UK’s intention to begin tracking well-being along with GDP. Sustainable Seattle is launching a Happiness Initiative and intends to conduct a city-wide well-being survey. And Thailand, following the military coup of 2006, instituted a happiness index and now releases monthly GNH data.

 

Apart from its (accusatory or celebratory) national rankings, the annual reports of the WHR focus on pertinent challenges to (and, less often, enhancements of) the state of… well… world happiness.

Some of these studies have concerned the likes of climate change, economic equality, private and/or public corruption… the stuff as makes people either happy to be where they are – or not.

 

The World Happiness Report 2021, compilers say: “focuses on the effects of COVID-19 and how people all over the world have fared. Our aim was two-fold, first to focus on the effects of COVID-19 on the structure and quality of people’s lives, and second to describe and evaluate how governments all over the world have dealt with the pandemic. In particular, we try to explain why some countries have done so much better than others.”

The L.A. Times, two years ago (Attachment Five) lamented that life in America “keeps getting more miserable, according to the latest data from the General Social Survey, one of the longest-running and most highly regarded public opinion research projects in the nation.”  This, before Covid (but in the depths of the Trump Presidency).

Money, a previous Times survey noted, does indeed buy happiness. They cited class and racial discrepancies… financial differences are largely attributed to the discrimination black families face, and inequity has a direct effect on the well-being of black Americans and Americans identifying as lower or middle class report a modest decline in happiness since the 1990s. But the picture is drastically different among the upper class, for whom happiness plateaued in the 1990s, dropped steeply around 2008, and has been rising steadily ever since.

On the other hand, while happiness research is “a useful antidote to the tendency of economists to focus exclusively on material determinants of social welfare,” as then-Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke put it in a commencement address in 2010, “GDP (one of the WHR select six) is not itself the final objective of policy.”

More rather curious correspondence comes from media outlets like Fast Company (See Attachment Seven) that cater to the making, saving and spending of money by those who have it… the Bhutanese connection is also explored in a 2012 reviews of The End of Growth: Adapting to Our New Economic Reality by Richard Heinberg and The Politics of Happiness: What Government Can Learn from the New Research on Well-Being, former Harvard University president Derek Bok.

That the percentage of Americans describing themselves as either ‘very happy’ or ‘pretty happy’ has remained virtually constant, having peaked in the 1950 and (despite continued increases in GDP) dawned first not in America, but in the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. In 1972, shortly after ascending to the throne at the age of 16, Bhutan’s King Jigme Singye Wangchuck used the phrase “Gross National Happiness” to signal his commitment to building an economy that would serve his country’s Buddhist-influenced culture. Though this was a somewhat offhand remark, it was taken seriously and continues to reverberate. Soon the Centre for Bhutan Studies, under the leadership of Karma Ura, set out to develop a survey instrument to measure the Bhutanese people’s general sense of well-being – which nine point (time use, living standards, good governance, psychological well-being, community vitality, culture, health, education, ecology) measurements became a template for the WHR.

Ura collaborated with Canadian health epidemiologist Michael Pennock to develop Gross National Happiness (GNH) measures across nine domains: time use, living standards, good governance, psychological well-being, community vitality, culture, health, education, ecology.

The almost-annual Reports provide a lot of boasting fuel for the small, cold nations that typically top the list, but there are plenty of dissenters contending otherwise upon an axis of religious nativism, political partisanship and… from some of the losers on the List… ethnic or cultural prejudices.

The National Review (See Attachment Six) condemns the academic and bureaucratic origins of the Reports by highlighting its disparagement or dismissal of nativist faith… namely that the Declaration of Independence states that all of us are “endowed” by our Creator with “inalienable rights,” among which is “the pursuit of happiness.” The idea, of course, is that finding happiness is the responsibility of the individual and that government may not unduly interfere that quest.

But according to the study’s technocratic authors, government is the prime creator of happiness. Indeed, the first topic mentioned in the report is “happiness and government,” which are the subjects of the first two chapters. In Chapter 2 they write:

“At the most basic level, good government establishes and maintains an institutional framework that enables people to live better lives. Similarly, good public services are those that improve lives while using fewer scarce resources.”

In this regard, NR correspondent Wesley Smith noticed “a glaring absence from these happiness-gauging criteria; a robust personal faith and religious participation in one’s life. I did a word search of the entire report and neither the words “faith,” nor “religion” appear, nor is the issue discussed in the chapter on personal “pro social behavior.”

What a glaring omission, Smith scoffed. “It seems to me as a non-social scientist that living a life of meaning and purpose are more important in deriving life satisfaction than GDP and life expectancy at birth — which, in turn, would seem to be a more important factor in a good life than mere “happiness.” Certainly, people who are not religious are happy and live meaningful lives, but I think that overlooking this crucial aspect in the life experiences of literally billions of people in the world — again, as a non-social scientist — renders the happiness report substantially useless.”

For proof, he notes that “the supposedly happiest country, Finland, also has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, higher than ours — and we are in the midst of a suicide crisis.” So do the next three highest ranged countries, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland.

Cultural and racial reservations about the List arise from poorer nations who accuse its criteria of reflecting the mores and values of the West, and even from a presumably Western country one would think ranked higher… based upon its economic success and political pull.

Since the ranking was first compiled in 2012, Scandinavian countries have dominated the top. African countries are found at the other end, noted the journal africacheck.org (See Attachent Eight), asking “What does the (UN) happiness report really measure?


“The 
2018 round was no different, with the New York Times declaring “Want to Be Happy? Try Moving to Finland”, while website Face2Face Africa lamented that “Africa remains the least happy region in the world”.

Another cultural question that a Japanese critic of the WHR has noted… “the charitable giving question reflects a Christian notion of how things should be done, a notion that does not apply in many countries including Japan”...  Keio University professor Takashi Maeno has gone further and said, “The questions in the survey are fundamentally based on the thinking of Westerners and the survey overall is biased toward Western countries.” 

Although the idea of an index originated with Bhutan, points out Earl Kinmonth  in the May 18, 2019 issue of Japan Forward (See Attachment Nine), “until 2017, the three editors of the report were a Canadian, a Brit, and an American — all white males.”

Kinmouth, a Westerner who had “taught sociology to Japanese college students for 18 years” at the time of the article, contends that the Japanese suffer because of their self-deprecating view of life and, in fact, concludes by agreeing with the WHR’s most rabid detractor, the pro-Trump New York Post’s Kyle Smith (March 22, 2017,  Attachment Ten) headlined: “THAT WORLD HAPPINESS SURVEY IS COMPLETE CRAP”.

Despite trumpeting that… “(i)n 2007 the USA ranked third among the OECD [Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development] countries; in 2016 it came 19th… Thanks, Obama!”

These surveys, Smith sneers, “depend on subjective self-reporting, not to mention eliding cultural differences. In Japan there is a cultural bias against boasting of one’s good fortune, and in East Asia the most common response, by far, is to report one’s happiness as average. In Scandinavia, meanwhile, there is immense societal pressure to tell everyone how happy you are, right up to the moment when you’re sticking your head in the oven.”

His contention is that the “winners” in the happiness sweepstakes, happy or not, favor intrusive, neo-Socialist governments and that other, even less objective efforts like a 2012 Gallup survey that ranked Panama first, “followed by Paraguay, El Salvador, Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand, Guatemala, the Philippines, Ecuador and Costa Rica” or the 2014 Pew survey of 43 countries (admittedly excluding most of Europe for being so, well, European) which had Mexico, Israel and Venezuela finishing first, second and third, with the US in the top 10 but barely beating Vietnam and Colombia.

“Huh?” Smith asked.  Where are all those Americans thronging the border to escape to Mexico? “In that same survey, here are some of the other countries that beat healthy, wealthy Japan: Argentina, Peru, Malaysia, Pakistan, South Africa and Nicaragua. Does anyone seriously think Nicaragua is a happier place than Japan?”

 

Maybe, as the Chicago Tribune (See Attachment Eleven) and Charlie Feathers concluded, you should just blame it on time.

For a reality check, advised economist Gregory Karp, consider the 1950s. “That post-World War II era is widely regarded as a golden age of prosperity and contentment in the United States. Some people talk wistfully about returning to that age.”

But, he goes on to recall: “In the 1950s a third of American homes didn't have complete indoor plumbing and a quarter didn't even have a flush toilet, according to Census Bureau data, one in five American households had no access to a telephone and, in 1953, just two-thirds of homes had even a black-and-white television. “Owners would fiddle with the rabbit ears antenna and adjust the vertical and horizontal hold knobs to tune in a picture. Many locations offered a single broadcast channel, unlike today when more than 100 channels come through crystal clear via cable or satellite feeds on gigantic color sets.”

Both of which cost money, but that’s another story for another time… maybe even next week!

For, in the 2020s, even setting aside the ravages of the plague…

“One of the biggest money problems for Americans today is overspending on parakeet funerals!”

That's right.

There was a time when it might have seemed outrageous that Americans spent $36 billion a year on their pets, including custom-made parakeet caskets. But no more, Karp admitted after perusing an article by Sarah Ball Teslik, chief executive of the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. Teslik called "Parakeet Funerals," delving into the absurdity of keeping up with the Joneses, which today has become an all-out sprint.

So blame the Joneses, too, the neighbors, relatives and relativity.

"I grew up in the 1950s, and I remember how we lived," Teslik said. "We felt flush because we were living a much better life than we were during the war or between the wars. But compared to today, it was nothing. I felt cool when my mom made me a dress out of the kitchen curtains, even though it had some grease stains on it."

And perhaps the most seductive, or destructive modern innovation… deadlier, even, than social media… was the proliferation of EZ credit.

“Credit cards were in their infancy in the 1950s,” Karp wrote, “and nobody used them for everyday purchases. But now, anybody who can fog a mirror can get a credit card and instantly separate their consumption from payment.”

Corroborated Teslik: "It's not that human nature has changed. It's just the ability to spend tomorrow's earnings as well as today's is new."

 

And that brings us to that other topic and other days… while both defenders and critics of the WHR have valid points and, in fact, the boys from the ivory tower have weighted their rankings with acknowledgement of GDP as one of their criteria, one factor is missing…

Equality!

Two billionaires are going to blast off into space this month and, while the plague might have knocked the economic order sideways a bit, the contention that the West is experiencing one of those dream decades of conspicuous consumption, like the “golden ages” of the 1890’s or 1920’s, could a reckoning be just around the corner.  There are plenty of jobs available now, but most pay the minimum wage… or even less… and the debt burden on Don Jones is accelerating.

Take a look at the Debt Clock website, if you dare.

And then there are other contingencies… assassinations and revolts that Haitians, for one, are calling for America to get involved in, just as the chaotic exit from Afghanistan and likelihood of Cambodian-level massacres of our allies looms… a decaying public and private infrastructure that has both luxury condos and utilitarian bridges collapsing while “statesmen” debate the status of what infrastructure is… a climate change apocalypse playing out on the burning West and flooded East coast of America…

Here’s what happened just this week…

 


 

 

JULY 2 – JULY 8

 

 

Friday, July 2, 2021

 

Infected: 33,709,131

Dead:  605,524

 Dow:  34,787.93

 

 

Condo death toll up to 20, then 22.  Fruitless hunt for survivors now endangered by Elsa, in the Caribbean – a hurricane now and leveling Barbados.  A rescue firefighter discovers the corpse of his own seven year old daughter.  Another building under construction in Washington, DC also collapses – 5 hurt.

   Toll of the missing lowered to one hundred twenty-something, not much less than the official death toll from overheating in Northwest, with more results from Washington, Oregon and other hot places still coming in.  Walla Walla hits ninety nine-ah.  President Joe holds a press conference and snaps at critics: “I want to talk about happy things, man.”

   Trump in trouble as his CFO, Alan Weisselberg is accused of paying TrumpCo workers (including himself) off the books.  Will he flip?  Nancy’s one-six investigation committee announced – six Democrats and renegade Repub. Liz Cheney.

 

 

 

Saturday, July 3, 2021

 

Infected:  33,713.780

Dead:  605,497

 

           

 

Wildfires destroy Lytton, BC, Canada – Sunday’s national hotspot.  “Hundreds” of deaths rumored (not yet reported) in Oregon alone. 

   Employment is up (850K new jobs) and so are wages, but unemployment is also up.  Plague-related retirements soar to two million, leaving employers scrambling.  Extension of eviction moratorium without a mortgage moratorium has landlords fuming – “People need to be evicted!” they cry.

  Hurricane Elsa writes finis to condo rescue effort with 24 dead, 120 missing,  The rest of the complex will be demolished to prevent it from collapsing, and building inspectors scour South Florida, finding many unsafe highrises.

 

 

 

Sunday, July 4, 2021

Infected:  33,717,567                   Dead:  605,526

                

 

 

Joe fails.  Only 67.1% vaxxed (58% double vaxxed) and two thirds of those refuseniks say they will not get shot under any circumstances.  Various excuses are proffered (it’s not been proven safe, it’s from the government they don’t trust… now…) but the reason none of the media want to bring up is that Donald Trump told them it was a conspiracy to kill them or steal their minds, so they will not get it, even now that Ol’ 45 has changed his palaver (if not his mind).  The unwanted doses are being sent to zoos to inoculate big cats, bears and… ferrets.

   Without specifying that everybody’s dead, even the pets, Florida condo rescuers celebrate their finding of “personal possessions, precious memories” like old photographs.

   Fourth of July fireworks are back in some places, not in others.  Townsfolk in fire-plagued West express their patriotism by stomping bubble wrap.  The plague-plague in China has led to a shortage of cherry bombs and sparklers (can’t America make its own explosives?) but the day is being taken as a return to normalcy.

 

 

 

Monday, July 5, 2021

 Infected:  33,723,095                 Dead:  605,567                         Dow:  34,283.57  

               

 

To beat Elsa, now whacking Communist Cuba, demolition men blow up the rest of the Surfside condo as frenzied inspections reveal more and more bad buildings.  And passengers have to be evacuated from JFK airport due to water leaks from above.  Rumors that condo developers have been bribing building and safety inspectors begin circulating. 

   With the holiday over, Americans go back to what they do best… murdering each other.  Eight shot at Fort Worth carwash.  Jersey driver rams crowd at Washington Monument.  Hater stabs Boston rabbi outside school; also in Massachusetts - strange, heavily armed militia gang intercepted on their way to… Maine? 

   Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter celebrate 75th (diamond) wedding anniversary.  Hot dog champ Joey Chestnut chomps down 76 wieners for his 14th title.

 

 

 

Tuesday, July 6, 2021

 Infected: 33,746,563                    Dead:  605,905                              Dow:  34,577.37

 

 

Hurricane Elsa takes leave of Cuba, heading towards the Florida Keys.  Authorities suspend the increasingly fruitless search for survivors at Surfside, protesters protest that evacuees of damaged other half were rushed out without being able to save their pets. 

   Brazilian “Gamma Variant” deemed worse than now-dominant Delta.  Vaxxing refuseniks claim a “higher power” (Donald?) will save them while new mothers who consented say that their breast milk is safe, 

  On the six month anniversary of the one-six, Congresspeople still complain of ‘mental scars’ and complain that they ‘feel forgotten’.  Some are turning to self-help groups.  Others blame racism.

 

 

 

Wednesday, July 7, 2021

 Infected: 33,770,444                   Dead:  605,905                    Dow:  34,681.79 

 

Elsa makes landfall at Cedar Keys, FL after whipping Tampa with wind and rain and spawning tornadoes in Jacksonville.  It’ll head north through Georgia, the Carolinas, DC, NY and eventually up to Canada.  As it departs, recovery (nobody calls it “rescue” anymore) efforts resume at the now larger pile of rubble… death toll increases to 54, 80 still missing.

   As the Peruvian “Lambda” variant chases Brazil’s “Gamma”, TV Doctor Jah says the time has come for America to order all citizens to take their shots or… something. 

   The shots in Chicago come from guns – after 90 victims over the weekend and a tourist from Iowa stopped before he can repeat the Vegas hotel sniper massacre, the police chief declares that liberals “have made us all less safe”.  Pulitzer photographer Darnella Frazier loses her uncle, killed by a police car chasing somebody else… they call it “accidental”. 

   The President of Haiti is assassinated by professionally armed and trained, presumably foreign, home invaders in the middle of the night… this following Elsa’s visit and a vaxxing rate of: Zero!

 

 

 

Thursday, July 8, 2021

 Infected:  33,790,505                  Dead:  606,496              Dow:  34,421.93

  

 

 

Elsa takes the I-95 route up the East Coast, in New York for the weekend.  Its rain cancels Surfside condo rescue efforts… politicians now admit that the objective is recovering bodies, not saving lives.

   Media trumpet their “Tale of Two Cities” (the vaxxed and the unvaxxed).  Not publicized… black and white refuseniks have different reasons and different ideologies.  Can we get Don and Barry to do joint PR campaigns against the plague?

  Ransomwarriors target American small businesses.  Our suggestion: ban bitcoin and all of its fishy comrades.  Let’s go back to real money!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Given the circumstances, Don Jones’ lousy week was certainly not the worst in recent memory as was at the height of the plague.  Of course, the axes of heat and wildfire, wild crime rates, the Surfside catastrophe and many, many more fell on some necks, spared others.

The Don Jones Index for the week of July 2nd through July 8th, 2021 was DOWN 22.47 points.

 

The Don Jones Index is sponsored by the Coalition for a New Consensus: retired Congressman and Independent Presidential candidate Jack “Catfish” Parnell, Chairman; Brian Doohan, Administrator.  The CNC denies, emphatically, allegations that the organization, as well as any of its officers (including former Congressman Parnell, environmentalist/America-Firster Austin Tillerman and cosmetics CEO Rayna Finch) and references to Parnell’s works, “Entropy and Renaissance” and “The Coming Kill-Off” are fictitious or, at best, mere pawns in the web-serial “Black Helicopters” – and promise swift, effective legal action against parties promulgating this and/or other such slanders.
