WLIA 24: Enter the Machine Part 3

As I process how the machine lost power, as well as how it didn’t and other observations. I also do an accessory reading from a more outgoing political boss which speaks to how things are done.
Slightly different version of what I read from Plunkitt “Honest Graft”
Two posts about Plunkitts history and politics as what people want despite the contradictions
