Like said it was in 1978 that I determined that the US was too corrupt to save. Now since I have nowhere else to be, I must take up a nationalistic stance and make my suggestions.
All of Transcendia is a suggestion.
How many years is it from 1978, Transcend-O-Ray ™ to now? I get thirty seven. I traveled more back then. I was lucky. Toronto came before my draft number came up 346 and I could flee Rochdale College before flying out a window because I was fighting the corruption that cocaine brought in. Some of the set up for that place, may well have led directly back to Meyer Lansky. It was a great place to learn the realities of friends and enemies.
Now it doesn’t matter but the lesson that corruption is what destroys a nation. Rochdale was close enough to nationhood for the lessons to hold. Too bad the Canadians who wandered South to LA for Fame and Fortune did little for Rochdale. It is worthy of some song I’ve not thought to write. The opening story out of Poor Buzz & Stories from Warnings for my Daughter organically became the first story. Fitting, I was out of high school and up for the draft and went to Canada before my number came up.
I was in the Music Loft of Carrboro and a Leon Russell signature was discussed as a mar on a bud wiser, miller beer promotional guitar hanging on the wall. Guy seemed to not care for Leon Russell’s name, or work then.
I’ll never forget being in my little apartment on the 15th floor of the building overlooking all of Toronto North and West from there 341 Bloor Street West. West I think for sure. I’d got some baroque Garrard turntable and a couple of tweeter woofer speakers I hooked up to a Interscope little amp and smoked some hash and listened to Leon Russell as I looked out over the city. I was awed with the fortune of it all, so grand a life. Hard to believe I lived it.
Incomparable education I got to test for truth against the vision that was the result of love, boredom and bliss not long after that in the out in nowhere stationary warehouse. I’ve written about it plenty of times. Buy the book.
The fact that I came to focus on the creating of a nation to moderate world economies as a system of ports could do, so obviously, means I know now about governance enough to have felt worthy of a US Senate seat run. Of course working your way up and through all the lies and misconceptions about everything under the sun took time. I had to change some of my thinking after reading Classic Readings in International Relations.
Now I get more confirmed in my belief in the invented currency for Transcendia, the Insurodollar than less. Operatives ask for the academic vetting. Whatever Yves Smith might ever have to say is what I want to hear. She deserves a Cabinet seat for her work. She takes up where Barbara Tuchman left off from dying. Tuchman was already where I got to by 1985 or sooner, saying that the US needed to give up on Presidential Electoral Democracy and adopt the Parliamentary System where the Party is the thing and Cabinet members can’t be fired out of hand by the President, or Prime Minister.
I felt smarter for at least getting to that view on my own.

About Russell Scott Day

I come from sailors and priests. My aim is to prevent apocalyptic riot, better known as nuclear war, when I was growing up. Creating a nation of airports will create the peace enough environment to prevent apocalyptic riot. I had a vision due to a period of boredom and bliss like the Aleph of Borges. That is the story I learned and was made up and happens.
