I love this kid. He has the smarts to become a great investigative journalist.
Zachary Maxwell is his name, and he’s a whiz. He decided to document the dishonesty of New York City’s Department of Education about their school lunch program. His findings are both disgusting and hilarious.
Here’s a clip from his film:
The difference between Zachary and this clown is Zachary saw something he thought was news worthy and documented it. Then let people see for themselves what was going on. You however spin it to support the narrative that government is an innate evil.
But to that kid Zach, listen man school lunch is always shitty and has always been shitty. Nonetheless great work and stay passionate about giving people the news.

There are two areas where the USA is way out in front of the rest of the world: war and prison. The technology of killing is the main investment of US national energy, and of course the semi-public semi-private incarceration economy is flourishing while schools and roads crumble. In many other quality-of-life terms — housing, healthcare, public transportation, public access to technology, mental health support, support for people with disabilities, childcare, primary education, maternity support, social safety net — I think a lot of US Americans personally know that things are not exactly rosy but see no options for fixing it.

Or, perhaps it represents an androgynous unity, creator/destroyer, the Baphomet - the Great Initiator of Life.
