Everybody knows that the dice are loaded

As much as everyone joked about Epstein’s probably demise, there is still a bit of wonder that this really happened.  If anything, both the left and the right are quite united in their quest to the get to the bottom of things.   For most of us who aren’t naive, Leonard Cohen summed it up best in “Everybody Knows”:

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

For a quick summary of the Epstein mess, and in general, a good listen, check out Quoth the Raven.  He’s got podcasts, a Twitter feed (which discusses the Epstein situation), and a manifesto that makes sense.  Will you agree with him on everything?  Of course not.  But there’s an honesty there which is refreshing.   He’s also a fan of Tusli Gabbard, which is another plus.

Questions:

  • Were you surprised by Epstein’s demise?  Or not?
  • Is this possibly the Ceaușescu Moment for American politics that has been written about before?  People on both the left and right are asking for “heads to roll.”
