For "holycausters" the purpose of communication is to falsify, fabricate, and fool the public about their new-found religion...
The bizarre evolution of "Schindler's List"...
...that being, of course, Holycaustianity...

The Purpose of the Communication . . .

WHEN I began to think about it, I realized that I had been doing what every writer, unconsciously, is always doing: a writer is never listening to what is being said, he is never listening to what he is being told. He is listening to what is not being said, he is listening to what he is not being told, which means that he is trying to discover the purpose of the communication."

-- James Baldwin, The Evidence of Things Not Seen, Henry Holt and Company, New York, 1985, p. 95


IN THE spring of 1994, before and after the Spielberg movie Schindler's List won the Academy Award for best picture of the year, essayist and playwright Bradley Smith bought the first, second and third edition of Thomas Keneally's novel.

He soon noticed the strange disappearing act with regard to the word "fiction" among the usual publication data on the back side of the title page.

Whereas the words "fiction" and "fictitiously" appeared five times in the first edition, and the word "fiction" appeared three times in the second edition, both words had been excluded from the publication data in the third edition.

Smith noted these omissions in his Summer 1994 issue of his Campus Update for Editors (p. 7).

During this same period, the literary supplement ("Focus") in weekend editions of the Toronto Globe and Mail began listing the Keneally novel in the nonfiction section of bestsellers.

***********************************************************************************
LET'S STOP KIDDING OURSELVES!  9-11 was an Israeli-backed spanking on our
collective American bottom! A Boeing 757 DIDN'T pierce through six walls of the
Pentagon (impossible + no aircraft debris), a late model cruise missile did the job;
the Twin Towers DIDN'T collapse due to heat (impossible), demolition charges
did the job;  there were NO Arab hijackers (the jets were guided electronically);
and the Zionists/Judeo-Christians now in control of the United States are traitors
to the U.S. Constitution... as well as being mass murderers.This has been a Zionist
WAG THE DOG operation from the start, deadly serious for our elected leaders
WHO KNOW WHO'S GUILTY, and an Arabian Nights charade for Mom and Pop
in Littletown, U.S.A.! It's an info war! Forward this to the world!
