proclamation 4311

Our faithful chronicler Doctor Caligari reminds us that among many other notable events, on this day in 1974 US president Gerald Ford issued a pardon to Richard Nixon in order to spare his family further humiliation.
“Theirs is an American tragedy in which we have all played a part.” Not to underestimate the fickle nature of US sympathies nor the ego of a narcissist and with the understanding that despite how unrewarded it seems that at the end of the day, it does not matter if Dear Leader is given credit for prodding the world towards a more social just state by re-branding the striving of past generations to those whom are direct beneficiaries, but I do still harbour the hope that there’s little tolerance for revision and that the whole criminal syndicate goes down together.
