I very much like this piece and love the concept. This beats the “We got Talent” shows in every way, especially we don’t have to endure their intense and obvious manipulation of the audience. No centrally-directed group could have developed these pieces, e.g. the “Stand Up” piece with so many different instruments. They can pick singers, instruments, … for every different phrase of the songs, much more freedom for the ‘director’, now editor. Properly organic, and world-wide scope. What is not to like?
Indeed, one world, one civilization, one specie, one music, many versions of them all. Except the world, we only have one of those and should take more care of it. :
Extremely obviously, mercury in vaccines is very likely one cause of autism, and CDC scientists lied about their evidence of safety :
Many insiders have said that NSA spies on everyone. This whistle blower specifically said “Supreme Court, Congress, …” :
If Trump doesn’t get the Deep State under control, we will have a revolution in the US. I see no sign of Trump controlling the corruption our Deep State has fostered, and much that could be interpreted as aiding and abetting the mafias :
‘Incidental collection’ is not the answer for the bugging of Trump. They collect everything about everybody, every phone call and every email is run through huge systems of servers and analysis devices to select ones for further processing, e.g. voice-to-text for the phone calls and automated analysis of those texts and all email for items that analysts need to look at further, or which should be available to them. Some are selected for humans to check the transcriptions, that is the extent of ‘incidental’ in the intelligence world of 2017 :
More proof the surveillance is of everyone, otherwise why bug all iPhones? :
I think there is nothing wrong with genuinely free trade, the capitalist side has that right. OTOH, the rapid integration of the world’s economies that financialization, dependent on the FED’s cheap money, has allowed has been maximally disruptive. The current offshoring has been a result of central planning, not organic growth, and the social-political-economic system has not had normal adaptive responses as a result. Clearly, the Democrats are representatives of the Deep State that want to hide all that, fighting a rear-guard action against the forces wanting to expose it :
ISIS, creature of the West. The wars and interference in Iraqi and Syrian politics by outsiders created the conditions, and ISIS doesn’t go away until the conditions are remedied or countries are partitioned :
Yes, the significant thing about the recent ‘ISIS attacks’ is that they are individual initiative, completely impossible for law enforcement to prevent. Individuals carrying weapons is the only social defense. On the positive side, when it comes time for a revolution, they can’t stop us either, and if we do it intelligently, they have no defenses at all :
I am reasonably sure that Orlando was a Faux Event, nobody died. There are reasons to think that was true in Istanbul, and funny elements about Nice that make me question that reality, so Robb isn’t an objective observer, imho.
I think that American Jews of this next generation are not so supportive of Israeli policies, and that support is even dropping among their parents. This article makes me more certain of that :
This is interesting, a parallel to the problem of consciousness that Searle believes can’t be a result of mere computation. A living thing is fundamentally different from non-living things, but is also ‘computation’, processing and accumulating information. This view of applying information theory to evolution is getting traction, e.g. a book I have been slowly reading “Probably Approximately Correct” by Leslie Valient, which considers evolution a subset of the problem of learning about the environment.
The article is also a good comment on the problems of people working across the boundaries of academic disciplines, multi-disciplinary synthesis is necessarily incompatible with deep specialist knowledge, so it is easy to look a fool. OTOH, all of the big jumps in understandings need those syntheses :
Brilliant skeptics with case studies of how easily thinking goes awry :
50+ years later, we finally get the story of the war in Laos. I believe the situation in Cambodia was similar, which ultimately lead to the rise of Pol Pot and the genocide :
The improved view of Shrub is necessary because he was also a Deep State President, as was Obama and as Clinton was intended to be, and there were essentially no foreign or military-intelligence policy differences between Shrub and Obama, in fact Obama pushed the secrecy and anti-whistle blower campaigns far past Bush :
This link was in a voat.co/pizzagate/ thread, is difficult to evaluate. OTOH, easy to believe, given the CIA’s control of the media and the fact that Andrew McCabe runs the terrorist investigations, is the CIA’s man inside the FBI. 9-11 required serious corruption/blackmail power to accomplish and keep quiet, paedophilia has been the CIA’s most powerful blackmail tool for at least the last 25 years :
The NYPD has said they have copies of all of the Wiener laptop emails, and will release them if the FBI does not conduct a competent investigation of ALL OF THE EVIDENCE. This seems like a real leak from people inside the case, judging from the amount of new detail. If real, and I think it is, it is another warning to Comey and Sessions that they better get active and start arresting people, because the information WILL come out. I think it should be published, all of it, immediately. There are children being trafficked because of these people, entire corrupt organizations are ruling us and trying damn hard to rule the world. They need war and chaos lest they lose power and subsequently hang.
This can’t work, our political system is a 3-ring circus in shambles, and trying to split us, voters, into being enemies rather than fellow citizens with the responsibility of honesty and integrity, necessary for making life better for all of us. It is easier to break societies apart than to knit them together, as so much of the rest of the world reminds us :
This is effective social control of drug use, my only objection is that it should not be organized by any government, it is a role for churches and clubs :
This is a probably-straight and rational attempt to deal with the explanatory power of ‘Deep State’. It fails, imho, by not recognizing that 9-11 was a False Flag Operation by the US government, lead by the CIA and assisted by the Mossad. Nobody who looks at the evidence can have any doubt of that, yet all stories in legacy media are framed as 9-11 being due to evil Muslim terrorists. That level of reality is necessary to grasp where the media, academia, alt-news, … actually are wrt any ‘conspiracy’. The same situation exists wrt other aspects of reality, e.g. nobody died at Sandy Hook, gun control, the war on drugs, … Meanwhile, CHSmith and others have pointed to a fracturing of the intelligence services around the issue of subordination to the civilian authorities, as well as a crushing of the whistle blowers who attempted to uphold that view within their agencies :
This is the reality of the Deep State, right out in the open. Don’t tell me this vast and pervasive mechanism of control of news and literature is controlled by the civilian executive, we clearly see otherwise every day in the anti-Trump messages that are in every broadcast and many news stories :
What Americans benefit from Yemeni deaths? The wars in the ME and North Africa continue and expand, and how threaten millions with starvation. Our Deep State-MIC is behind this, and Americans will be judged guilty for allowing all this to happen in our name :
Automation of everything, then add face recognition to the mix, a gun could wait a long time and very patiently for the right elephant to come along :
This guy attributes India’s loss of civilization to tribalism and loss of the rational Western view that established Western institutions. But, those institutions are being lost from rational behavior in Western countries, European and the US, not just Asia, Africa and South America, Mexico. Without the functioning institutions, tribal behavior is as good as individuals can do. Once corruption gets started, reversing the process is very difficult.
IMHO, corruption is the issue. It prevents the institutions from functioning rationality. So Rule of Law, with few enough laws and a system mandating Justice, not process, is the basis for functioning institutions, and the necessarily first element of a society to become institutionally corrupt. That seems to me what has happened here in the US, a plethora of laws and processes which hide the injustices :
Eric Zeusse is a smart guy when he discusses politics, society, world affairs. When it comes to science, I can’t tell that he knows anything at all. Climate changes. Humans do not have a long enough historical record to say much more than that, everything is hypothesis waiting for more evidence. Nobody yet can disprove the claims that Zeusse makes, e.g. industrial gases and ecosystem changes will doom the planet to lifelessness, because we don’t understand enough. However, nobody likewise can prove them, we don’t understand enough. Whatever the real concensus, nobody believes we understand everything about climate science. Without everything, models cannot mimic reality, and certainly cannot predict reality. Additionally, Zeusse does not cover all of the recent discoveries, e.g. Lord Monckton’s results showing a mistake in the basic math of the models, or the views of Ivar Glaever, a Nobel Laureate. Or Professor of Physics William Happer. Or a panel of marine biologists .
Yes, it is another position with which nobody can disagree in polite society, a semi-religious Truth :
