Greek Myths They Couldn’t Teach You In School…

“When we learn about Greek mythology in school, we hear a lot about the heroes. But it turns out that there’s a lot of little details — and entire stories — that are super dark, and slip through the cracks of higher learning. Here are stories from Greek mythology they couldn’t teach you in school.

Tantalus, the king of Sipylus, was insanely rich and incredibly evil. Given that his father was Zeus and his mother was the daughter of two Titans, maybe genetics had something to do with it. Regardless, he was afforded certain privileges. Among them was a standing invitation to enter Mount Olympus, where he would join the gods for their meals. Three different stories emerge about what happened next, but they all agree that Tantalus screwed up.

In the first story, Tantalus tells his fellow mortals what the gods are planning for them. In another, he steals the gods’ food, ambrosia and nectar, and gives it to those same mortals. The third story is a bit more… extreme.

To test whether the gods really did know everything, he decides to kill his son, Pelops, and cook him for dinner. He serves his special Pelops stew, and no one eats it, except for Demeter, who is distracted and mourning the loss of her daughter to the Underworld.
As punishment for the act, Zeus condemns Tantalus to eternal hunger and thirst. He’s even forced to stand in a pool of water that drains when he tries to drink, and beneath a tree with fruit that hangs just out of reach.

GLENN GREENWALD Calls Out AOC’s Fake Progressiveness…

The comments on major platform internet censorship are quite timely, given how Twitter has decided to abruptly renege on the previously established arrangement/understanding with MAPs.

They’ve literally written and enforced an insane rule, where they target and punish people with nepiophilia, pedophilia, hebephilia and ephebophilia where said people are expressing their own humanity, and standing up for their own humanity in the face of abusive onslaughts [which are themselves against Twitters terms of service].

…It pisses Twitter off, that a “pedophile” would maintain a perfectly legal account on their platform, where they behave like a normal, well balanced human being…

…So, incredulously…they wrote a rule as part of the CSEM [Child Sexual Exploitation Material] policy, which forbids this perfectly legal, perfectly honest, perfectly ethical and moral behavior.

It is brazen, unjust, malicious targeting of minorities who are objectively doing nothing wrong.

On the contrary…they’re behaving exemplary, and doing everything right…and being viciously punished for it…for no other reason than Twitter wants to.
