Thoughts for Today, 24 Sept 2022

What a time to be alive, war, famine, pestilence; one should not be shamed for musing over the state of the world, it certainly feels worse today. Perhaps it is, perhaps it is not. Let’s analyze, shall we:

War: More than 50 conflicts around the world, assuming you don’t count areas with absurdly high crime rates (looking at you Cali), crazies bombing, shooting up, or other wise causing general mayhem in places, to say nothing of other general disorder that gets shuffled under the radar.

Famine: This, for the moment at least, seems to take a back burner position in world affairs, although the future does not look particularly bright. The EU seems bound and determined to get rid of all their indie farmers, [see Netherlands & UK], the war in Ukraine, and drought/high temperatures in the US give the general feeling that this winter might be tighter than usual, painful inflation will strongly contribute to this, no doubt.

Pestilence: What need I say, that has not already been said about Cv19, in fact a commercial about that just played on my music player, to say nothing of monkey pox, the return of polio, etc. Billions of USD has been made by some very rich people, and as we all know everyone loves money, and the more the better. It is what it is. the love of money is the root of all evil. Not just a quote from the bible, boys and girls but a painful fact.

I suppose the best thing to say is prepare for a long tight winter, so dig in, hold your friends and family close, hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. And if you believe in divine providence, this might be the time to lay on some serious prayers.

Be Blessed,

my Friends

Stay safe

Thought for Today 1 May 2021

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.  ”

A Few Thoughts 4 Jan 2021

 At the beginning of human civilization & to be fair all communal animals, the value of raw numbers was superior to the value of technology.  This situation remained generally static until the advent of the industrial revolution.  While superior technology most definitely aided in the rise, continuation, & the fall of individual civilizations, the overall paradigm remained.  Power was in number of soldiers, farmers, mothers, fathers, & children.  Education was generally not needed except for the elite & the bureaucracy.  

   This all changed when the industrial revolution hit.  Power required a large pool of semi-skilled workers to run the machines that could easily out produce dozens of non-factory workers.  This change caused many of the social paradigms we have today, leading to the rise of democracy, worker's rights, equal rights, the banning of slavery, the demise of feudalism, & the rise of social consciousness.

  Technology has now reached the next &, quite possibly the final stage.  One where humans are either not needed at all or needed in only very small numbers.  Also one where these remaining humans are not needed to have any specialized knowledge.  These humans could go about their lives in complete ignorance of any type of practical knowledge of running the infrastructure of civilization, the specific skill sets previously highly sought after, & even basic skills like feeding, cleaning, or entertaining oneself without artificial aid, would not be necessary.  [possible dystopia] Where will this end, one needs only to continue the postulation, that we will literally obsolete ourselves, with AI or more likely homo status artis, being smarter, faster, stronger and ultimately "better" than us old homo sapiens.

Happy New Year!!!

5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms — What Did You Say?

State of the Election 23 Nov 20

Twenty days after the election and things are still up in the air, relatively speaking. So where are we? Well there is definitely voter fraud, how widespread remains open for debate. People have been arrested for voter fraud, more will follow. There has been widespread voting irregularities. Perhaps this was accidental. Perhaps not.

In regards to the Presidential race, the Trump legal team has filed court cases in several areas, republican candidates, and state and local parties have also filed cases. The status has varied some have already been dismissed. I am not a lawyer but it seems most of the cases are not voter fraud, but procedural irregularities. Still serious, but different.

Now on to rumors, innuendos, and whispers on the wind. The Federal Election Commission, the FBI, several state and local police are investigating voter fraud. Indictments to follow. Weaker sources talk of servers, memory sticks, laptops, & hard copies having been confiscated.

If even half these rumors are true, well it won’t be a boom, but expect a whimper in the news, and 4 more years of “Orange man bad”, “the election was stolen”, and the “Trump coup”.

As a side note, Covid-19, is expected to hit us hard this winter. Which means “leaders” [like governors] will flock to tyranny like moths to a flame. So be advised, and act accordingly.
