Sixto Rodriguez: Detroit’s Sugar Man…

Fortunately, Cass Corridor’s own Sixto Rodriguez won’t awaken this April Fool’s Day to a faux surprise. He really is now recognized as all the talent that he imagined himself to be these past 50 years-or-so. Rolling Stone magazine just reported that he’s now “making $millions” on the road. We’ve all heard the “Cinderella Story“…(if one can imagine her at the Ball at 70)…

Watching the Academy Awards I was surprised that “Searching for Sugar Man” won. I assumed that it would go to the Israeli documentary, “The Gatekeepers,” or the Palestinian, “Five Broken Cameras.”

However–for Sixto as well as Detroit in these times–that selection was no less than a cosmic act of justice and synchronicity. more…

Detroit: The Final Solution…

What remained of democracy in Detroit has now been usurped under corporatist rule by Michigan’s Governor, Rick Snyder.

Atty. Kevyn Duane Orr (55)...

Atty. Kevyn Duane Orr (55)…

Snyder, a venture-capitalist CPA who made his $millions as a Gateway board-director and other enterprises that exported jobs overseas, has appointed Attorney Kevyn Orr to lead point in the latest phase of the corporatist plan: America, Inc.

In an act of ironic synchronicity, Orr is a younger lookalike to another racial quisling, Clarence Thomas, one of the Gang of Five on the US Supreme Court.  more…

Detroit Jubilee!

I got off the Trailways in downtown Detroit Saturday morning, the 18th of September, 1965. My sole possessions were on my back.IM000006.JPG

Walking a couple of blocks to the ancient Saginaw Trail cum Woodward Avenue–the white man’s first paved-concrete road in the world–Detroit’s Finest lost no time picking me up. I could hardly blame them…

I wore a cut-off, coarse white shirt with a faded “P” on the back, white pants of the same material and a pair of well-worn Beatle boots with no zippers. No socks, no underwear, no ID. After 23-yrs on Earth and six years in the Old South, that just about summed me up. more…

Overseer Rules Detroit; Corporateers Advance Counter-Revolutionary Agenda…

Disclosure: The author is a democratic, constitutional socialist and a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD). I conclude that the emerging corporatist state is a psychopathic pathology.

Some of my political and professional colleagues consider the liberal-conservative paradigm to be one of a left-right socio-political dichotomy. I do not, at least not completely. It is far more that of a developmental continuum. Its most mature stage is universalized social consciousness and responsibility.

The more one experiences during their formative years the pathology of authoritative, punitive and individualized self-entitlement, the less mature is their development and the more fixated they become in self-focus and infantile projection (how they perceive others and their environment).

Corporateers and their cadre are at root a partnership of those who are developmentally fixated on profiteering and sociopathologically-framed mental syndromes and disorders. more…
