Me, freshly beyond reddit, surprised this old post is still active. If saidit was like reddit, it would be archived.

Not sure if my comment is off topic, it's about 'double entendre' in which the original meaning has been apparently superseded by its opposite. My main gripe in this mode is "incredible". Not griping about confusion with Pixar animated video, but the very popular distorted meaning "favorably impressive", as in "this (item described) is so marvelous, you won't believe it!" This usage is very common in Epoch Times advertisements; seems to me this adjective is undesirable for application to a "controversial" news source.

An older version of this is just confusing, "sanction" because the Law senses (4, 5, meaning 'condamn') are the opposite of the "common senses" (LoL) (1..3), which make more sense due to the origin "sanctified" meaning blessed.

Done. Sad to see that sub empty.

I can't remember what it was in one of your reviews that triggered a few movies that bounced around in my head for a day or two. I meant to mention them then but it slipped past in my multitasking.

I hadn't seen the movie you recommended, maybe The Castle, but the impression I got was that it was a nice, well crafted, family friendly, quaint movie. Being nice is nice, but sometimes it can also be great, and makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over without all the sex, violence, deceit, fantasy, authority, agendas, propaganda, etc. - or in the other direction with over saccharine drama engineered to manufacture artificial emotions in you to milk until dry, raw, and sore from abuse.

For your consideration and/or opinions on "nice" quaint films:

I would say that Siege of Jadotville is slightly better than Danger Close mostly because Siege had the benefit of dat Netflix cash behind it.

I rate Kilo Two Bravo as one of the best military stories ever put to film. It's a shame it's not more widely known.

It's only relevant because people decide to view it. Imagine if people were aware enough to seek truth and turnoff the Television.

I've always wondered why some people suddenly wake up and expose to themselves and others the lies and propganda in our daily lives, whether it be the obscenity of consumerism or the talking heads on the TV or noble lies perpetuated for eternity, there's always a minority that is aware to this deception. Then there are those who discover it, become aware but decide to deny it and lie to themselves and then there are those who will never wake up.

well thought out, and put.

I'm reading an Indian guy from over 120 years ago. His view of the world overall then, is so close to what we're living now. I don't agree with everything he has to say, as some of it supports the idea of embracing the caste system(some ways it works, other ways I can see as limiting) oneself is born into, but overall, it's some good food for thought on how, and why to do xyz.

Haven't finished reading it all, but here: https://holybooks-lichtenbergpress.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/SWAMI-VIVEKANANDA-COMPLETE-WORKS-Vol-1.pdf

And for complete disclosure, I got the link from Les Visible; don't always agree with his thoughts, and then at times I do.

Hey well said, and I agree. However there are some scenarios that are just flat-out better than others, for nearly everyone. Like having food vs not having food. Having enough clothes. Covering the basics. Having a clear peaceful mind vs a chaotic one, and having a culture that helps make that easier. We can work towards making things better, but I agree there is a lot of "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." going on in this world so we must act very carefully and thoughtfully. But I think over-reaching is just as bad as under-reaching, so to speak. It's all a delicate balance, and I don't blame anyone who is trying their best to do (or not do) whatever is necessary to improve things. But some improvements are genuinely better than others, it's not all smoke and mirrors. But finding those things is tough.

I agree some problems are too big to solve in one lifetime, regardless of the level of dedication. However that just means that the task then becomes finding problems that are small enough to be actually solved. Not to just go "eh why bother" which I see as defeatism, you know what I mean?

What one sees as a problem, often times is someone else's idea of a solution. What you see as up, another sees as down, or vice versa. The concept of 'all roads to hell are paved with good intentions', really is embodied in this light.

I offer advice here, or there, I used to do quite a bit more, but I realized other folks are on their own journeys; whether they realize that, or not; people will do what people will do.

Overall, I really liked what you wrote, it's good food for thought, and it's just like that other saying, 'you can lead a horse to water(suggestion), but you cannot make them drink(self-determination). What I wrote was apparently a failed attempt at outlining that sentiment; as it's necessary for a degree of sanity when the world keeps doing insane things.

Welcome to being an individual idealist; it's good food for one's soul, and personal growth in co-creating. At some point though, you realize that the world's issues aren't able to be solved; it's akin to straitening curly cued tails of a dog, or pig.... Straighten it out the best you can, and it'll still curl back.

I agree, that's a subtle but useful point. But you also have to "fake it till you make it". First we have to stop spending time hating stuff that should be ignored. This is an active process at first. But later we eventually begin ignoring it automatically, without it having to be a forceful thing. But we have to practice first, and practice is often a forceful thing at first and then becomes more and more natural, be it with ignoring stuff or playing baseball. So I think what you talk about is a great end-goal, but there is the intermediary stage of actively practicing ignoring things you'd otherwise engage in, and I think you have to practice the middle stage to get to the end goal.

My understanding of what u/magnora7 is saying is that one should refrain from focusing one's energy on hating/disliking a person place or thing. (My own take on "ignoring" the hate is that you rest with it as it is, neither avoiding, indulging nor neutralizing it.) Instead, harnessing the power that is the essence of hate (or any other descriptor) --raw energy--and focusing that potent energy on solutions.

In other words, don't get caught in an energy-draining eddy of psycho-emotional material--use that momentum for imagining, exploring, implementing solutions for the benefit of all.

As philosophy, these ideas work very well and are admirable. I'm happy to agree to that point.

In terms of modern experience I think to ignore, or not pay attention, to an unfortunately growing number of topics only leaves psychopath malefactors free to act without scrutiny- or to put it another way, the bastards can get away with anything at all if we don't keep an eye on them.

I feel responsibility to try to keep informed about some things; it would be so unfair if no one even knew what those schemers are up to.

To recap: it would be great to be like that, if I could live with myself.

Attention is almost literally everything. This is an insightful point many people gloss over far too often and far too quickly. Most people also don’t do enough work to expand the capacity of their attention. Everyone can foster their ability to “pay” attention but few actively work toward this.

One quibble. Ignoring something is not the same as not giving it attention. If you have developed a deep sense of your attention you will be able to feel when you are being actively “ignored” versus when someone is simply not paying you any attention. “Ignoring” is actually an active subset of paying attention. While in the public sphere it is certainly preferable to giving full attention, on the energetic level, ignoring is still feeding the beast and one must advance fully beyond giving any level attention, which includes actively ignoring.

Complex, I know. The Buddhists explain it more deeply, especially in Vajrayana.

These are great points.

It's a challenge to ignore all of the bullshit.

For 20 years, a Tennessee baby thief kidnapped more than 5,000 children from the streets, hospitals, and shanty towns of Memphis. Now, 70 years later, survivors of her 'house of horrors' are confronting the past. by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

I wish I hadnt had read this. What a monster.

Shutting the Children's Home Society down may have cast it into obscurity, but by then the home had already permanently changed the lives of more than 5,000 children. The unimaginable horror of the place still reverberates today not because many of the children were orphaned or abused but because they were stolen.

Stealing kids and selling them :(

For more than 20 years, Tann ran the Tennessee Children's Home Society, where she and an elaborate network of coconspirators kidnapped and abused children to sell them off to wealthy adoptive parents at a steep profit.

Apparently it was around $900 per child, which is about $14000 in todays worthless money.

Her favorite scheme was to drive through impoverished neighborhoods, picking out the prettiest children, then offer them rides in her shiny black luxury car. Once the children were in, they usually never saw their families again.

Even today, these kids still dont know who their real parents are. They would need a DNA test.

In the 1900s and 1910s, formalized adoptions were fairly rare, but in the 1920s adoption began to be marketed as a shortcut to societal improvement. According to one ad from the National Home Finding Society, adopting would "reduce divorces, banditry, murder, and control births, fill all the churches and do real missionary work at home and abroad, exchanging immigrants for Americans and stopping some of the road leading to war."

Indeed. The court documents reveal that they were dealing in very underage girls. 8 years old.

So it is also with the Epstein case.

The court documents reveal so much more than the media wanted to let on.

Mainly, they buried the international trafficking of young girls aspect. NXIVM was importing fundamentalist LDS "nannies" from Mexico. Ghislaine Maxwell was given travel documents from Israel for young girls from third world countries.

Combine that with the fact that NXIVM uses known CIA affiliated private investigators and the FBI Finders file and we get a clear picture from primary source documents that the intelligence community is trafficking children.

I, for one, can't wait for this revolution you speak of. It's bad.. very bad. And there is still only very few people who can even see it. It has to start somewhere.. like forced awareness in majorly developed countries (mainly the usa). Awareness leads to action.

I am using "revolution" here in the sense of "the next iteration in our cultural evolution as a civilization"

Very interesting comment, I think you are dead-on about quite a few things.

Not sure who wrote this stuff. But there are two important things to think about on this long post:

1.) The word revolution. What does it mean? To revolve, to return? People have their own ideas. Just think about it though.

2.) Beliefs and Opinions. With the fake news and censorship, it has become tremendously difficult for people to formulate their own beliefs and opinions to match the social reality we are in. Most have fallen to swallowing propaganda, while others are clinging to their set beliefs passed onto them via generational sects. Few will be able to engineer their beliefs and ideas to the accuracy required by crushing lies and straining the truth out of it all.

So basically, we are seeing the need to revolve back on our beliefs and opinions to fit reality; without breaking it or us. But due to the obstacles present, some conflict will probably take place and therefore an internet distribution protocol would not be the instantaneous golden pill due to misinfo, disinfo and plain old prejudice. Not to mention a physical conflict may disrupt telecommunications infrastructure in the future.

So really the revolution of ideas and opinion starts with you. On an individual level. Now what do you have left to learn and do?

This is how I think a real revolution has to happen to actually work. It's not a revolution of guns and wars, but rather a more fundamental revolution of opinions and ideas.

California Dive Boat Disaster: A Study in PR Firm Astroturfing? by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

[–]Tom_Bombadil 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

According to MSN, Monday at 3:00am, 5 crew members of the Conception abandoned ship. Purportedly, they lept from the front of the boat, swam to the back, lowered the dinghy (the fire fighting equipment was several feet from this location) and fled to a ship 200 yards away, despite being 20 yards from shore.

Sounds more like a getaway vehicle.

There was an automatic fire suppression system in the engine room. Apparently, useless for the type of fire that broke out.

What kind of fire are they suggesting occurred?

Third, crew on the ship have been known to retrieve lobster traps from below standard dive depth over artificial reefs made of broken porcelain (sinks and toilets). This is a skill particular of divers who are also smugglers.

The last line was my suspicion after the second event.

This reminds me of the South Korean sunken ferry where 300 died, notably 250 school children. Occult documents and symbols were found on the boat (not in the link below, but a family member was living there at the time, so it was in the new there.
All of the crew survived, and it was suspected that the children were sacrificed, as it was the 30 year anniversary of the city leaders death (IIRC). The whereabouts of the president was unknown at the time.

The “Spirit Cooking” Style Cult Accused Of Murder And Shamanism In South Korea’s Government

This led to the eventual down of that govt, and the new president (and better relations with North Korea).

It would be great if this led to something similar in the US, but it's extremely unlikely...

You mean the narrator of the video? That's me, and I am from New Zealand.

On the topic of killing, I think anyone, and everyone has it within them; getting to point of putting it to the test though, is something I don't think most really want on their conscious.

A large part of the book is about this very thing. Overcoming that innate resistance to killing, and how it becomes more difficult the more intimate the kill.

It's even for little things. I know a girl who's a waitress. A cop took a teenager to a bar and told him to order a beer when things were really busy. Next thing she knows she has a court date.

What was it Ayn Rand said, that they don't want a nation without crime. They want a nation of criminals. An innocent man has nothing to fear and therefore can't be ruled. But a criminal can be manipulated and controlled to have his punishments reduced (in this case used to incriminate another person).

That was a paraphrase. This is what she said (or had a character say): https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/319903-did-you-really-think-we-want-those-laws-observed-said
