Intelligent people = benefit themselves + benefit others
Helpless naive people = do not benefit themselves + benefit others
Bandits = benefit themselves + do not benefit others
Stupid people = do not benefit themselves + do not benefit others

"Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake." ~ Carlo Cipolla
In the 1970s, an economic historian called Carlo Cipolla wrote a provocative article titled "The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity". This week's episode is about his theory of the destructiveness of stupid behaviour and why it is so underestimated and misunderstood.

I had not considered things in this way.
This fall I worked with some stupid people of various levels who can't help themselves or others. I am a "helpless person" who benefits others and not myself enough. Maybe this year I can be more self-helping.

I know I am super late to the party. Sorry about that! I am just now seeing this post (since you had linked to it in a common you'd made to me). I am so sorry about your father passing, and also sorry to hear about your being cut off from your family.
I know these are random questions, but are you a Capricorn? The astrology of Capricorns is they all had at least 2 or 3 very hard years around 2018, 2019, 2020, but depending on your specific chart, the hard years may have started as early as 2008. Hopefully, this year has been a good year for you, despite covid. You deserve some breathing room!
Next random question is do you know that a parasite called Toxoplasmosis causes mental issues? This article only addresses schizophrenia, but it causes a bunch of disorders, including bi-polar disorder, depending on which part of the brain it settles in. The reason I chose this particular article is because it points out that toxoplasmosis is carried in the sperm, and 50% of the offspring of an infected male carry it. This is why mental illness appears to be genetic. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/03/how-your-cat-is-making-you-crazy/308873/. I suspect that one of the reasons Daraprim and Ivermectin have been demonized is because they help cure mental illness, or at least stop it from getting worse. Big Pharma can't sell all those psych meds if people realize the true cause and cure of their issues.
Finally, I would strongly recommend a book called The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner to help you learn ho to rebuild your relationship with your mother and siblings. It is a short, easy read and will change your life.

From a private message:
When you announce Session, and then immediately say that some people fear repercussions, you're inviting m7 to be suspicious.
When you announce Session, and then immediately say that some people fear repercussions, you're inviting m7 to be suspicious.
Interesting idea. I had only said that to not only let M7 know that people fear his tyranny, walk on eggshells, and that our community shouldn't feel this way. It also hammers home my point that there are cracks in the foundation.
Same with the idea of a mutiny. You deny that it is a mutiny, but why mention that word to begin with? I'm not sure if it's the right approach.

Again, this isn't a mutiny, it's an evolution. It's a little past prime now, but I wished you'd commented this on that post. I hope you don't mind that I took the liberty to share this anonymously.
There still is great utility in SaidIt, whether as an anon proving ground where folks may be invited to limited forums, filtering out the STABS, or in some other fashion. We must not give up on SaidIt either. SaidIt is our mother, despite the cracks in the foundations.

We have those.
We need to determine what platform. Lemmy has a good coder base for support but Lenny is a fork with one guy who is removing the complex SWJ censorship built in. IF we had more coder guys to support that one guy and the Lenny fork then it may be worth recommending.
IMO we should establish some federation parameters first, on all fronts simultaneously, to determine how the instances in the federation will interact:
Q: What do I mean by "sets"?
A: Creative Commons licenses come in simple clear well-defined sets. Each forum instance owner can choose how they would run it and define their forum before they even start it. In this way people should know what they're getting into before they jump ship. Also perhaps most people would chose the same set, but there are one or few who would chose a higher or lower tier for their instance. If one guy allows trolls to roam freely that could be problematic for the federation and may be blocked. He may wish to go it alone or conform and raise his tier. Same with too high aspirations. Naturally, filters would help resolve this and whether they exist or could exist is something to look into.

Well, you're in good company, I would think (among us many black sheep).
Hugs are nice.
I don't think things are insane yet, though certainly very irrational. Perhaps it's just semantics, but I think the worst is yet to come, and then we can discuss insanity via desperation.
I think I saw the same videos. They fill me with more rage than my own father's death, away from my eyes. It will get worse, because it won't simply be "euthanizing" the demented. I use quotes because a truly compassionate end would not include hours or days or longer of suffering till death.
Monsters in lab coats.
One of the good ones too, you're among my /s/Friends, with contextual understanding of the ruling class' full spectrum dominance.
Naw. I'm just the black sheep.
The "science" they employ is about chaos, not order. They were throwing darts in the dark to determine what prescriptions to give me. A "best guess" is NOT science.
Who can I sue for the dozen years of my life that was destroyed? Who goes to jail for malpractice that killed my father? Not my mindless shrinks nor Big Pharma. Completely unaccountable.
That's not science.

I agree, except I don't get what you are saying about order and accountability.
I agree that is puzzling and would think it is wrong on several levels. Sometimes the short answer is 'trauma', because people don't know how do deal with it.

JasonCarswell, I just saw this post man, I am truly sorry for your loss. Big hug to you, brother.
We are living in insane times, the propaganda and brainwashing are more than evident to some of us, but the world in its majority is completely oblivious to reality. Every day the insanity grows more. Most older folks grew in a world with more order and sense; trust in authority was normal because authority was not rotten with corruption to the extreme like today. I just saw a post about medical personnel forcefully "vaccinating" dementia patients, like a horror movie.
It is hell to know this reality and having this insanity infiltrate your life. Living in a world of zombies.
Keep strong brother, you have better understanding of reality than most people. It is good to have you on our side in seeking truth and peace.
I can only wonder how much things might have been different if I were a father too. I am certain that after I started taking the Big Pharma poison I finally learned a lot about mental health issues, including my bipolar, ADHD, and OCD that we've always had. I didn't need or want to forgive him, but it was a huge relief to understand him - and myself, including my past of bouncing around the continent without stability - like in my youth. Not only was I the ice breaker but my brothers had more stable childhoods as my parents finally settled in Windsor.
I have 2 cats now, and even before yesterday they'd fight and dealing with them I was reminded of my parents. Perhaps as a father I might have understood him more.
From my Big Pharma poisons I was in bad shape and by circumstances was lucky enough to find a place directly across the street from them. I was in a dark place and wanted to see no one, yet ironically I crawled out of my hole as they crawled into theirs. I rarely saw them. Meanwhile, before COVID my Mom (and sometimes my dad) made weekly or twice weekly visits to my brother in South Windsor to babysit her grand kids. I had no "future" to them.
It is what it is.
Backatcha. I feel grateful for you and the others' contributions, not just in these comments but on SaidIt. We're lucky and we've got a good thing going here.
If that were the case at least there'd be some order and accountability. During by Big Pharma poisons, despite being all fogged up, I could still see there was no methodology to their "science". They're so overwhelmed with information they're oblivious to their corrupt scientism - they can't see the forest through the trees.
I know "success" is largely bullshit, yet, in many ways it matters. You can't have beautiful women without ugly women, and there are many of both, yet only some may be considered more highly valued as sex objects - just as men are measured as success objects. Obviously this is only a superficial take on it as there's much more to life than these criteria. Furthermore, I'm now fucking 50 years old, out of shape, and with a fucked up back - yet I'd still like to be "happy". I suppose I'm like a handful of 30-50 year old women that I've seen here and there over my years. They once had all eyes fixated on their young beauty, yet older and fading they desperately do stupid things for attention as they don't know anything else. Meanwhile, "ugly" women at the same age thrive with realism, independence, experience, and wisdom without drama.
I still don't know why they didn't tell me they were in the hospital, nor why they waited 16 days to let me know.

Much gratitude for your every precious thoughtful word.
Subjective indeed. His opinion was long since almost irrelevant to me, but we share common circles of influences. Allies are always better than not. I didn't need to be redeemed, but I wanted it anyway.
More than just pop culture corporate media, but people around me, are always talking about how important family is. I can recognize it in my own life at times, while other times it seems like myth. Especially when the establishment is perpetually trying to divide and break and control us. I can only guess where I stand in relation to the average (how ever many ways you choose to determine it). I can easily imagine better family lives. I've seen many, and not just on TV. I've also seen worse, and I can certainly imagine worse. There's no shortage of stories about abuses, kidnappings, orphans, etc. - and that's just in our first world. Most of the world suffers tortures of the damned under heavy boots and bombs of merciless exploitation and tyranny.
I don't buy into a heaven fantasy shit, as nice as that might be.
Anakin, you're focused on throwing gay sand instead of the fun of building sand castles. However, I must thank you, and indirectly Bob3 for engaging me there and giving me food for thought. Not under this post, I could give you a list of things I semi-regret doing in my youth. Obviously if someone says, "That's gross," I'm tempted to step it up. Why do we like to push limits? Sure it's fun, but short lived. Like my realizing that while IMO no topic is too taboo to joke about, however Holocaust Skepticism is better without jokes that would distract from the issue and make it a larger target. That was an epiphany for me, and similarly, discussing trolling I realized I needed to do better than throw gay sand, fun as it is, to be better. Next time someone's grossed out, I'll be forced to bite my tongue.
Sorry, Gotch Seeds doesn't have the same ring.
You know me online with many of my internal thoughts, but I'm pretty sure that if you knew me in person you'd soon realize I'm very independent. Though I try to be aware of what others think of me, I often don't give a shit and do my own thing anyway. Just yesterday I was discussing this getting drunk with my neighbour. He's financially set for his retirement with almost zero ambitions, so he wears what he would wear even if he were filthy rich. I'm scraping by month to month, but if I won the lottery (I'd have to play that scam), I'd have many ideas and counter-culture projects that I'd invest it in - but with extra financial wiggle room I'd employ some clothing artisans to develop MANY custom fashions, from practical to eccentric. IMO, like Burning Man, every day is Halloween. There's no shortage of 6-foot, long-haired, long-bearded, old-man get-ups I could easily wear well. One of my forthcoming project proposals will outline a way in which I just might even have a valid excuse to make this happen.
It would be nice to spend more time with Mom, though it'd be easier if she met me half way. I imagine to her I'm like my dad's mom. My Grandma was a born-again Jehova's Witness - the worst kind. So convinced their new way was the best and everyone must conform. Believe me, when I passionately go off about conspiracies I know I may sound crazy to the uninitiated and unexposed. I expect this is even more alienating from a bohemian non-conformist like me. To some I might as well try to convince them to ditch their stable committed marriages for polyamourous orgies - senseless.
Patching things up might be nice on some fronts. I suspect they might also be painful and/or a lot of effort. Sounding like someone possessed again, I know my time is limited, more than ever now and with my fucked up back - so IMO I need to use it with more purpose as wisely as I can on these projects. I can finally understand and sympathize with the unmarried Ralph Nader, though I'll have to pull some serious miracles out of my ass to actually be worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence as him.
Oddly, in writing this, I've had another epiphany and project idea, very much NOT what I want to do, but very necessary I think, in order to save time from drafting all these epic, verbose, and beautifully eloquent diatribes (/s).
I can't say if flu shots were ever effective. There have been a lot of questions raised regarding this in the last year. Before that folks were pointing countless problems with the so-called solutions of the past, from polio and beyond. Many of these solutions could easily also simply be attributed to better nutrient and/or hygiene developments.
If you must get the shot, my advice: research the contents, the bad cases, the source, the chain of custody, etc.
I agree, we need to be flexible on most things.
I'd disagree regarding the Germans. Regardless of their philosophies, behavior, or leadership, they were the underdogs targeted for being critical to controlling Europe, and thus Eurasia to dominate the entire world. The irony is that the Germans, as center of Europe, despite propaganda claiming otherwise, could never conquer the world already dominated by the Anglosphere. I'd say most of common German history is bullshit and political theater to obscure the levers of power, their motives, their actions, and their plans.
I aim to evolve my meme-making into something more memeingful. Stay 'tooned for AnimMemes.
Your compassion is always most welcomed. I suspect you're alluding to some of our communications, which I consider very incomplete. I admit that I'm a very limited human, incapable of reading, hearing, and watching everything - including everything on SaidIt and the now nearly 700 messages I should really get to - all while trying to save the world! Like my extreeeeemly neglected email, many of those messages were either important or long, read and unread, so I'd either procrastinate until I could devote my full attention or simply answer the easy ones first. This weighs heavy, but obviously not enough to prevent me from trying to keep up with current events and/or make new strides. I plan to soon put the current events largely aside to make more room to focus on projects and their related interactions.

@JasonCarswell To answer your questions: 1st) I'm located in the Pacific Northwest, USA. 2nd) I haven't discussed this with the kid if Covid and Influenza A are the same. To me, they clearly are clearly counting the flu strain deaths as Covid deaths.
Here is something I didn't know. Last time the pup was here he told me that the flu shot you could have gotten last year was to address 4 different flus. One of which (this is the interesting part) was the flu of 1918 that was the worst worldwide pandemic ever. Turns out that H1N1 strain of flu is what they call that these days, it never went away - we just adjusted to it. The flu shot addressed that and 3 other flu's. I looked it up and he was correct per the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html
I will likely get the Covid shot as my boy recommends it and he got his first one back in December. I have never received a flu shot in my life (unless they snuck one in when I went in the military and they gave me a crap load of shots all at once before I deployed overseas). Whereas my mother had received EVERY seasonal flu shot EVERY year stretching back to the 60's, 50-60 years. Then about 3 years back she stopped getting them as it was too much trouble to get into the doctors office. It didn't seem to bother her health in any regards - her mental facilities were top notch and sharp right up to the time she passed.
Remember that when speaking "truth to power", it is the willow that survives the typhoon. The mighty Oak snaps from the force, but the willow gently bends and survives. The Germans tried to be Oaks, and they were utterly destroyed and reviled to this day for the effort. Meme's are being a willow and yours are fucking excellent! Not a skill that I have, you clearly do. Take care of yourself Fren.

A white lab coat. A whole laboratory. A long list of experiments. The scientist runs them and records the results. In this scenario, there is no "wrong" or "right" result. The result is just the result and the knowledge gained is the reason for the experiment.
What if THAT was life?
Humans are brainwashed with ideas about "success" which mimic the Jewish materialistic / satanic slant of MAKE MONEY OR BE A FAILURE and similar, artificial and stupid metrics. It doesn't change a thing. You are born, you go through time doing things and record the results. It's easier if you believe you are choosing things, but there is no way to prove that any of us actually do.

While I'm annoyed at all the stupid conspiracy theories that distract and discredit the countless actual conspiracy theories grounded in truth about corrupt levers of power that I'm even more annoyed and outraged at, I'd already found a peace of mind in finally understanding how it's all a rigged scam. I am at peace while motivated to resist, find alternatives, create new paradigms, and share solutions.

You've inspired an idea, that I simply can't believe hadn't occurred to me: Make a sub for A+++ CRITICAL CONTENT of concise, well produced, easily comprehended, contextual understanding for the normie sheeple, or on rare occasions longer important documentaries. (Over reading I prefer to listen and occasionally peek at videos played 2x speed (or more) with hands and eyes free for other things.)
Of course, also needed is a second sub for A++ DEEP CONTENT of critically important content that goes far above "good", "great", and even "excellent" to the level of "exceptional". I leave it to the team to decide how they define exceptional, but I'll suggest it be like A+++ but lacking one/some of the criteria: concise, well produced (glossy), easily comprehended, and/or contextual understanding.
In addition to my outdated pre-2020 Truther Newbie Crash Course it seems I need a Critical Skeptics Crash Course with just the most important stuff.
Off the top of my head, these seem most critical and a good start:

Do you mind me asking where "here" is? I don't mean to pry, but I wonder if Windsor, Ontario, Canada might have Influenza A problems and/or maybe calling everything COVID but the kitchen sink.
Thank you for sharing your experiences, especially in such informative, clear, and rational detail.
The horseshittery is huge. The hysteria, hyper overreaction, and lockdown are bullshit. Unless a miracle occurs so I may X-ray vision through vast mountains of bullshit to the truth from every angle, I will never deny or confirm legitimacy of a COVID threat. In /s/Coronavirus, among countless others (likely most I haven't seen), I've shared an abundance of information from all angles possible. It's my opinion that this may be just another harsher corona flu, along with the potential of several parallel bio-weapon covert operations, along with the obvious countless artificially numbers of false positives and co-morbidities - all statistically manipulated and blamed on COVID-19.
That said, do you and your boy believe the flu and COVID are one and the same, or different illnesses?
Yes, most Jews are just sheeple too, brainwashed like everyone else, and they are not the problem. I too have had Jewish girlfriends, family, friends, bosses, coworkers, etc. Most Jewish leaders are tribalist scum - just like most other "leaders" of all persuasions.
Zionism is a monstrous problem, and while Jews are more prevalent at the top there are actually more Christian Zionists in their evil matrix of rigged systems, whether they know it or not. I don't know about that Ukranian Scandal nor researched it to speak on it, but it does not surprise me. The layers of scams pile up the higher you get with globalized power. IMO the corporate media's version of Russiagate is 100% bullshit, yet both Hillary and Trump and every other dual-national, billionaire, and globalist are well connected to the Jewish Russian "Red Mafiya", as well as directly to the apartheid state of Israel, a corrupt mafia like ALL governments, but with bonus unaccountability.

Thanks. I wasn't expecting we'd have this strange abstraction in common so soon. I haven't felt pressure from him in ages. The phantom naggings are my own self-criticisms to simply be better.
I've been writing my dank memes down for LeverMind, the variety show that could be like a mashup of Corbett Report, Monty Python, and classic radical MTV with character skits, political analysis, resistance strategies, alternatives & solutions, counter-culture, navel gazing, animation, mashups, fierce montages, etc. (I might use this paragraph for a pitch.)
I'll be dropping as much as I can afford on food seeds this March. Even if the Great Global Famine is years away (or better: never), I can get practice and learn what I need to. If I was a better capitalist I'd exploit this event with more than just my LeverMind pitch and ask people to send me condolence seeds.

He chose to medicate to remedy the bipolar - it didn't start the problem. Going to the hospital with liver problems is not "some no good reason". It seems he caught the flu there, though I don't know how sudden it was - or even how long he was initially there.
Bipolar, among other things, are in our genes and family. Manufactured society want's us to fit in their cubicle box to better "manage" and exploit humanity, and if you don't fit you get marginalized or extinguished.
My father was socially and perhaps mentally checked-out in the background for the last several years, just as I had been, on prescriptions. While they almost killed me, without more information and ability to discern the truth, I currently don't believe antidepressants killed my father. I may never know with any certainty.
I think his old age, obesity, diabetes, bad liver, the flu, and those ventilator death sentences killed him.

Disappointment is subjective.
All will be revealed, when we pass and are judged by the most high.
He'll realize you're the most enlightened of the three. Also, he'll might be scratching his head, and wondering about the gay sand.
After the fact, he'd probably want to visit more often. Such is life.

"Life is not good. Life is not a bitch. Life is bitterweet gotch.".
I couldn't find gotch in the dictionary.
Perhaps gotch is intended to remain a mystery.
Don't sweat others expectations of your life.
We all get the same thing. We get a lifetime.
Maybe spent more of it with your mother.
Maybe patch up some other unresolveds if possible.
Truth tellers have something to look forward to when all is revealed.

Jason, I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart dude. You have no idea how much I empathize with you (or maybe you do); I honestly don’t know what to say other than if you need someone to vent to, I’m here.
I’m sorry for your loss Jason, and I like your fathers saying.. from everything you said here, your father reminds me of mine.. I’m so sorry things happened this way..

You write well, thank you for sharing that. My mom caught the flu at the very start of the year early Jan 2020. They were calling it Influenza A at that time. My brother got it as well and his test also claimed it was Influenza A. Influenza A was here before Covid and killed slightly over 10000 US citizens a MONTH until April 4th 2020 when the CDC stopped counting it as "flu season was suppose to be over". Influenza A deaths then dropped to zero overnight....Covid of course was skyrocketing. Identical symptoms. Interesting.
Because my mom was in Hospice for other things, and being 99 years old with a DNR, they didn't put her on a respirator, although she was wheezing, hacking and coughing and barely breathing for days. It looked like it was checkout time, but she pulled out. Eventually dieing of a bunch of other things, none related to the flu or covid. My boy works in the Covid ward of the hospital, he knows its a real thing and I would not intimate otherwise, especially to him, but there is an element of horseshittery with it.
Like you, I saw more suspicious things go on with the news in the last 4 years than I can recount. It's made me damned suspicious of all news sources now, but especially any from Jewish sources. Do you not find it interesting that the Ukrainian Scandal, where all of the major players are of the Hebraic persuasion: Alexander Vindman- jewish, both current and former US ambassadors- jewish, Burisma- Jewish, and all of the other jewish players who made 2 billion dollars of US taxpayer money disappear and when Trump tried to start a process to claw some of it back they all but locked him up and turned all of the normies on to Trump via lies in the media. BTW, I like jewish folks, I've worked for and side by side with many, have some jewish friends still - so no rancor from me about "Da jews" like some of these folks on Saidit and Poal, but that doesn't mean I want to be preyed on by anyone and when they catch people doing it they should be prosecuted.
Stunning. Absofuckinglutly mind blowingly stunning what's been occuring. I don't know about food Crisis, but thank you for the heads up. Being of the prepper persuasion I have a good 6-8 months built up of stores and have started terraforming the local greenspaces and parks with edible food. Anyway, best to you sir!

I'm Jason 'Sunshine' Carswell if you care to find me there, though I may not check for months or years. You can let me know to accept it here on SaidIt. "jSunshine" was my Burning Man nickname before I started taking "anti"-depressants and withdrew from those many communities and the world at large.

Talked to my Windsor brother, Ben, before my home cordless phone died. If I recall correctly, it turns out my Dad was admitted on New Year's Day or Eve for liver problems, got better and came home, then later couldn't breathe and returned to hospital where they put him on a ventilator (a well documented death sentence) for a few weeks. When he was at home Mom caught the flu that he'd caught in hospital, made worse when she had a minor stroke, fall, and hit her head. Ben thinks she'll return to 95% or better after the stroke.

Why Sexual Morality May be Far More Important than You Ever Thought — Quest by [deleted] in CriticalThoughts
[–]jet199 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun - 3 years ago (0 children)
I feel like this is related to the sex robot episode of Futurama but can't put my finger on it exactly.
Basically men do a lot of things in their lives in order to get sex and if the ways they can get sex changes then so does what the bring to society.
So in the past men generally spent their lives trying to impress one woman so they'd do this through hard work, being a good person or being smart. If you move to men having lots of partners one after the other then the first things which go out the window are honesty and long term effort. What comes is in knowing how to say the right things to the right people at the right time whether you believe them or not and surface level, brief, flashy shows of success or kindness.
The latter is pretty much what we are seeing now and it's highly related to the rise of wokeness. There are even reports of wokefishing, where men know know full well what they are saying is nonsense but put on an act until they get their blue haired target into bed, but of course people have been doing the same things to get jobs, and get elected, for a lot longer.

Oh you are definitely wrong.
The scientific NATURE of a discipline is not the same concept as the scientific PROCESS as it applies within a discipline, using its fixed and unalterable laws.

If you say so. The mob is not always correct. The leader is not always correct. No one is always correct.
That's why science is never settled. Even IF climate change was actually supported by 97% of climate scientists (which it isn't) there is still room for research and further exploration.
I'm confident that I'll have the majority on my side, assuming anyone bothers to notice that post. Doesn't make me 100% correct, but it might make you think and maybe someone can explain it better to you. Or on the chance I'm wrong, maybe I can learn something.

You are confusing the nature of science itself with the scientific process.
When you state "science is (...)" you are, willingly or not, describing THE NATURE OF SCIENCE itself. If you wish to talk about the scientific PROCESS, then you must state it explicitly or else there can be confusion.
Right now you are wording sentences as talking about the NATURE OF SCIENCE but while meaning to talk about THE PROCESS OF SCIENTIFIC research, discovery, etc.
Nature of a thing. Process of doing a thing. Not the same phenomena. You need to communicate more clearly. Reread what you wrote. Hopefully you can extricate yourself enough from what you MEAN to actually READ what is written (by yourself) a bit more objectively.
And there's nothing new-agey about the material, but I agree that a cursory look will yield that impression.
EDIT: Also, you begin by discussing the NATURE of Psience as an actual science, and as demonstrated in my example using Fermat's last theorem, you cannot discuss the scientific PROCESS of a science you know nothing about. Which leaves us discussing the NATURE of Psience as a hard science. And then you keep the wording as if you were discussing its nature as a science, but come back with retorts that I am not properly discussing the SCIENTIFIC PROCESS, which cannot be discussed between a practicioner of a science and a lay person.
That leaves us nowhere but you insulting my intelligence. Very cute, but extremely harmful to the quality of the conversation. But go ahead, accuse me of that. It's also cute.
You are being idiotic shooting off about things you don't understand.
Clearly you didn't read about the scientific method - or scientism. And the language of math is NOT science, though it is used in science.
Science is NOT factual, it is an ongoing process of elimination. SCIENCE can NEVER be settled. That is bullshit Climate Change Scam propaganda.
Facts are malleable and often subjective to limited perspectives.
I recommend you shut up before I expose you to be ridiculed by drawing attention on SaidIt to your absurdist concepts. If you feel confident enough then let's take this to the people to laugh at your word salad garbage. That's how fucking confident I am.
Thanks for finally sharing the site. It looks like new age woo, but that's just a simple superficial assessment without merit. Unfortunately I can't read French fluently and don't trust auto-translations enough to bother translating it all slowly myself. You've already proven you have faulty thinking so I'm not going to bother delving deeply.
Actual science itself cannot ever be under critical analysis. How could it be? The APPLICATION or would-be application of science, or its principles might be, but not the science itself. What critical analysis is there to make about the fibonacci series? There isn't one. There can't be. Science is factual. One cannot do a critical analysis of a given fact, because a fact is, by definition, factually true and as such, not open for debate. Same with science.
I am sorry you feel I am not being clear, but it is you who aren't being clear. You did not write about a critical analysis of a scientific reasoning or application of said science, but about science itself. That is like having a critical analysis of the on/off state of an incandescent light bulb. It doesn't happen. You look at it, no light? It's off. Light? It's on. Nothing to debate. Science itself is like that.
Application, theories, then yeah that can be subject to a critical analysis by other experts in the field. But somebody who isn't an expert can't discuss it. For example, if I ask you to discuss (or perform a critical analysis) of mathematicians' view of the consequences for future developments of theoretical mathematics of the fairly recent demonstration of Fermat's last theorem, what can you say? Most likely, NOTHING because you are not a mathematician. But again, the mathematics themselves either work or they are erroneous and there is no debate to be had on that question. It's the same with every science: it obeys fixed laws. They aren't up for debate, as they make up the science itself, which can be used to prove its own cogency.
As for your would-be comments on my person and true ability for science, you know nothing about that.
Lastly, the site where I got the manual is here: http://www.revolutiondesprit.com
Share the science (or even the name of the manual), or it's not authentic open refutable science.
If you don't share the science but claim it is, then I am forced to have a blind faith in your claims and so-called science, aka dogmatic Scientism.
"Oh and a science is never up for a critical analysis."
SCIENCE IS A METHOD AND PROCESS TO FIND KNOWLEDGE.
1: the state of knowing : knowledge as distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding
2a: a department of systematized knowledge as an object of study
2b: something (such as a sport or technique) that may be studied or learned like systematized knowledge
3a: knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method
3b: such knowledge or such a system of knowledge concerned with the physical world and its phenomena : NATURAL SCIENCE
Anything claiming to be science without being provable is SCIENTISM blind faith dogma.
Science is NOT the Tao. Science is NOT the force. Science does not just exist. Nature exists, but nature is NOT science.
Where did you go to school because they utterly FAILED to teach you about science. How old are you? Seriously, you REALLY need to revisit this really basic shit.
ALL SCIENCE is based upon the SCIENTIFIC METHOD of which you clearly know nothing about. THAT is the ONLY way to your refine the knowledge to become irrefutable - because it must ALL BE REFUTED until only the truth remains.
If it can't be refuted (due to censorship, privacy, proprietary corporate ownership, university paywalls, copyrights, patents, etc.) then it's NOT authentic transparent open science - it's just blind faith scientism dogma.
Sadly our world is full of scientism and that's why giant corporations can poison people with radiation, big pharma, and their privatized "medicine" for profits without accountability other than their say-so.
Study hard : https://duckduckgo.com/?q=scientific+method
Uh? I fail to grasp what you are stating. Anybody can at least try to learn it. I'm not preventing anyone. I got the manual, trained myself and now I've got a grasp of it, nothing unusual or weird about it. I'm not understanding what you are getting at.
Oh and a science is never up for a critical analysis. A science just IS. Either you know it and you can use it or you don't. Who could ever have a "critical analysis" of Na+Cl = NaCl = salt? This... is beyond me.
Okay, but if you don't explain it then all you're doing is calling me ignorant, which I may be, or your so-called science may be at fault. We'll never know until you share it. And if you don't openly share it for critical analysis then it's just more blind faith in your scientism dogma, which I'll never subscribe to.

"They", the ruling class, are intentionally destroying our lives. It will get much much much worse - as desperate people do desperate things. Perhaps even war in the west. Their New World Order out of their engineered chaos. by JasonCarswell in CriticalThoughts
Ah, I see.
Interesting that the CIA also considered trying to dose the enemy with LSD or longer lasting psychedelics for the same results. Get a whole town going mad for 12-72 hours (depending on the substance) and by the time they become rational, aside from a few potential suicides and accidents you'll have rolled your tanks in to town and peacefully subdued them all without destroying the infrastructure or blowing up a single building - thus maintaining part of the wealth and spoils of war, not to mention the clear supply routes.
Typical LSD would not be able to last in any water supply with chlorine nor be effective as a mist or vapour. But of course the CIA had their scientists invent ways to weaponize it as such - because they thought the Russians had or would. Meanwhile the Russians were far behind them on many fronts, though I suspect would have if they could have or if they'd even think of such things.
It's been a few decades, but Acid Dreams is an excellent book on all things LSD.
Oh, I agree that money is just a representation of trust. It's all in our heads how we value things. But goods are tangible. Gold is still rare and valued. The bank can claim your home, but unless they have the police kick you out, then you can still live there.
This whole bailout is just ratcheting up inflation to the extreme, while simultaneously elevating the wealthy. And the sheeple will eat it up.
I often feel like we're preaching to the choir, bantering back and forth, saying the same things in different words. But I also firmly believe this really matters. It's going on the record for all to see and read, should they seek it out, and being archived on some places. Hopefully SaidIt will be backup-able soon. All things considered there's a huuuuuuuge wealth of info here and its not too many GB.
Any person can keep reading all these things. Said this way and that way, and still not get it. But eventually, either sooner or later, due to the repetition or a particular phraseology that clicks and cements it - they will understand all these concepts. (Even if they don't agree.)
Amen brother. The solution: FEMA CAMPS.

By little actual destruction, I mean that we're not now seeing masses of people dying or anything physical being destroyed.
Of course, all that was in place before coronavirus to keep people healthy and living well is still there and available regardless of what numbers are assigned to incomes or debts.
Money and currency are just a conceptual replacement for trust between people.
Unfortunately, our economic system is controlled by a centralized source meaning our means of trust and trade between each other is also controlled by that centralized source.
I agree that the majority will likely go along with this just as they have in past times of induced fear and panic.

Depends what you mean by "little actual destruction".
They blame the market crash and the LARGEST BAILOUT IN HISTORY on this event. To put the taxpayers in even deeper debt.
People are compelled to stay at home to destroy countless small businesses, jobs and lives.
People are struggling to make this months rent. Next month will be a nightmare.
You and I might not be affected directly - but MANY around us will, and the chaotic masses of endless ripples will make for some rough times ahead, though we may not see it all just yet.
2 months ago, I often wondered about Agenda 21 aka Agenda 2030, and how they were going to achieve all that terrible stuff on their checklists over the next 10 years. I mean, the worst that happened in the last decade was the NDAA 2013, the 2016 rigged election fiasco, a lot of stupid censorship, and a handful of "lone" shooters. Even knowing about their plans, and knowing the crash would happen in early 2020, I didn't see it all coming together so tightly and cleanly (sloppy as fuck as it is).
It just proves how effective the propaganda brainwashing and blind faith in authority is.
So far we're seeing little actual destruction, other than what individuals may do to themselves. The psy-op is pretty obvious. All the coronavirus numbers in red all over the place remind me of the terror threat level colors, in what 2002-2003.
This really appears planned to me. There's certainly something big going down. It concerns me that no one really knows where this is going. Certainly end game plans like Agenda 21 are worth considering, but how are we going to get there from here?
This has to be one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. Everyone in the world was just told to go to their room, and the majority of them said OK. Well, not only said OK, but are sooo convinced that everyone should stay home that it would seem they would stone anybody they see not obeying the rules.

One thing I see a lot when someone is trying to get their point across is people just waiting their turn to talk, and not really listening to what the other person is saying. If you really want to widen someone's perspective, you need to listen to them and really try to see things from their point of view. A little respect goes a long way.
Another thing that I've found useful conveying ideas is the use of simple examples or parables. Most people don't think in terms of numbers and statistics, so a narrative format is much more relevant.

200 proofs 50% of people on Earth have below-average IQ.
Am I getting old fashioned? by JasonCarswell in CriticalThoughts
As for the state of "closed" or "open" about this new science, I am unsure: the course costs $2,500, which could be argued as "expensive" although learning to be a hair dresser costs easily twice that. There are no journals however, since the science is so young that there are only very few practicioners and fairly amateurish at that, from what I can tell. Still.
But I agree about the religion of scientism.
That's because your mind is stuck in a relative state. It could reach the absolute and that's where Life actually begins: when mind matures enough to face the Absolutes of Reality without flinching, embraces them, unites with them.
How would I explain a science to you when you don't understand its most fundamental elements? What are the implications of the verification of Fermat's last theorem to advanced mathematical theory? Can you explain that to me? Nope. Even if you could explain it, and I doubt it, I couldn't grasp it because I am not a mathematician.
How on Earth could you even think of writing such a thing as "unexplained science"? If you have a scientific mind, you understand fully that such is a red herring. Only a practicioner of a science can test the proof of that science.
