    Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson.

    This absurd level of trust in millionaires that many people in the US have is in large parts a direct consequence of the idea of the "american dream". The reasoning goes something like this: If you just work hard enough you can become a millionaire Thus anybody who is a millionaire is a hard worker. Workign hard is a virtue. Thus any millionaire is virtuous. There are also a couple minor ideas that come with this line of reasoning. Most importantly the idea that, since the millionaire worked hard to get his millions he once was just "One of the little guys" and thus can understand the worries of "the little guys". That this whole line of reasoning is utter bullshit and can be dispelled with even a second of critical thought goes without mentioning. Unfortunatly too few people in the US actually take this one second of critical thought.

    Trump on "Drain the Swamp": "Funny how that term caught on, isn't it? I tell everyone, 'I hated it!' So I said 'Drain the swamp'. I said, 'Oh, that's so hokey, that is so terrible.' Alright I'll try it. So like a month ago I said 'Drain the swamp'. The place went crazy. I said 'Whoa, watch this.' Then I said it again. Then I started saying it like I meant it, right? And then I said, I started loving it, and the place loved it."

    It's kind of sad that Trump said he would end corruption when all he did was introduce more of it, and his supporters believe he was actually cleaning up Washington. It's like a bully walks into a social establishment and gets everyone to act the way he wants with his power (or whatever's granted to him), and everyone outside the bar for whatever reason think he's powerful and good for it. Trump is a moron, and I just don't understand why his voters can't see that. It's like they just want everyone else to be angry about Trump, instead of any positive difference he could have made. What kind of a voter is that? It's like they don't want to grant anyone else any language in the discussion. Just like Trump.
