  2. Paul was correct, Branden's and Rand's fields are distinct - and simultaneous, I think he'd agree: Good and evil and healthy and unhealthy. As both thinkers understood. Philosophy and psychology are considered different areas of formal study and application but co-exist in the individual mind and his life. (Self-evidently). Healthy and unhealthy was the specific concern of this Objectivism-grounded psychologist. Who would still write psycho-philosophically in Honoring the Self, about the correlation of human atrocities, sacrifice and self-sacrifice : "It is not self but the absence of self whi

  5. Here is what Marxism looks like these days. But don't forget, Marxism is a plan with a timeline, not an on-off switch. In taking over a different country, there are stages and some of them will not look like old-style Marxism until it's too late and time to execute the useful idiots. Rush Limbaugh mentioned the following article this morning. China bought the elitists in America. (btw - Lee Smith, the author, is the guy who helped Devin Nunes bust open Crossfire Hurricane and has been involved in other exposés about the Russia-Trump hoaxes.)

  7. Peter, Keep looking. You already know fake news exists, but the reality is much deeper and darker. Keep looking and noticing. It will sink in down on the lizard brain level where you want and believe today's institutions function like they are supposed to, that is, to give you correct and useful information, make a safe environment, keep the peace, etc. Then, on that level, the lizard brain level, imagine those institutions being corrupted beyond belief. Not the institutions per se, but the people running them. Then think about fake news. If it is starting to sound like mainstre

  8. Peter, That's the way scientific breakthroughs work, too. And great unexpected engineering feats. And, frankly great fellowship among humans. Don't forget that the use of money itself is based on a pattern of trust everyone adheres to by connecting dots nobody can prove. How can you prove someone will take your money for goods and services? You can't. You just assume it because you see lots of unrelated people doing just that. (Oh, there are laws about legal tender, but those only affect money within the context of the courts.) You can't have the good without the bad on dot-conn

  9. There are a few new changes. The Haha, Confused, and Sad reactions are no longer available. The Confused and Sad reactions are being abused for heckling and trolling, and since they will not longer be there, I am pretty sure the Haha reaction will take their place by those who wish to heckle and troll. So it has to go, too. With a large number of active posters, the impact of petty negative personal garbage will become so diminished, it will no longer denigrate the environment of the forum. But for now, these negative reactions are simply an easy manner for one or two posters to

  10. YES, very dangerous. Likewise, even more so, in Europe. (And, as I've said, an important ChiCom long-term goal of Covid is accelerating their power hold on Europe.) I’ll recommend a book to Merlin, who seems not to get the Marxist undergirding and deliberate employment of gender, gay, and race studies and "empowerment." I think you've recommended this book yourself, Michael: The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity by Douglas Murray. Ellen

  11. Yup. The revolution was organized. The bad guys even indoctrinated an entire generation of mostly white people right under everyone's noses. But they left out one critical thing. Footsoldiers. They had to import the other colors and persuasions for footsoldiers, and they didn't indoctrinate the corresponding black people already living here. They just had the government give some of them some shit and left them alone until voting time would come around. Now it's showtime, the lefties have set the revolution in motion with organized riots, and reality emerged in the form of

  13. Some peaceful protesters in Oakland. California last Wednesday. They were lovingly screeching and yelling, "Death to America!" in call and response along with peacefully destroying property. For those who keep trying to find a deeper meaning and excuse the excesses of zeal, they're not hiding what they want. And don't forget, it doesn't matter what YOU think. In terms of what they will do if unimpeded, it only matters to them what THEY think. Now look at reality, not just the story in your head. They are telling you to your face: America--to them--means you. Your

  17. Here is one of Scott Adams's more instructive videos about visual persuasion. He's analyzing the visual persuasion of the RNC as opposed to the lame persuasion of the DNC. One of his most important insights was, since actual visual persuasion in this format is hard to set up for a political convention, they used mental visual images to great effect starting with the language. (For example, DT Jr's characterization of Biden as the Lochness Monster of the Swamp lurking around in the bottom. And other things like that.) They also did mental images by wedding recent news stories that h

  18. HCQ+'zpack'+zinc , as far as I understand, works to interfere with virus replication. So mild vs severe cases are more generally the level of virus a patient has. It would make sense that an agent or protocol that can affect the population of virus particles will have benefit toward avoiding the disease caused by higher levels of particles that can affect tissue and the resulting cascade of effects caused by higher levels of virus particles. The medical community is well aware of the relative safety of administering HCQ to the general public. I'm obviously no expert, so what are the

  21. Update. As you know, people are allowed to react to posts with Like, Thanks, Haha, Confused, Sad. The Haha reaction has been abused by one member to mean something it was not intended for--to signify consistent mockery of another poster(s). I have even done that myself (to him) in retaliation during bickering. (Not my finest moments, I admit. ) I had to moderate this member recently, but for some reason, the software allowed him to continue reacting to posts of others at will. So I went into the Administrator Panel to see how to fix this. (I am pretty sure it is fixed now.)

  22. Here's an update on Millie Weaver. From the best I can glean so far, Alex Jones severed commercial ties with her because the movie portrayed Roger Stone as one of the people involved back in the day. And Patrick Bergy talked shit about Alex after being interviewed by him. Millie dared Alex to prove her facts wrong. She offered $10k if he could (from money she earned from Infowars, not from the GoFundMe money for her legal expenses). I don't know what happened after that, but I do know ShadowGate is still up at Banned Video, where it has crossed the 2.9 million views line. I'll

  23. Peter, You mean conscience? No matter, I prefer conscious because they do seem braindead. Here is what they are afraid of: The RNC. The DNC laid a turkey egg with the public. The RNC is going to kill it. The reason was very well articulated by Rush Limbaugh yesterday. The gist: not only is President Trump's bond with his supporters unbreakable by the Democrats, but he has an extraordinary ability to say what he means for the future in a form his followers--and others--can see in their minds.

  25. Back to sports and Marxism. The NFL took a beating in the ratings this weekend. But the players did stand and sing the black national anthem while taking a knee for the USA National Anthem. Marx himself could not have been prouder. One of the strategies his followers have used to great effect is to topple the symbols of countries where they want communism to take over. Modern day Marxism has its own style which does not look like classical Marxism, but it is just as effective at destroying cultures, then countries, and just as deadly to the citizens (except for insiders).

  27. William, If the vaccines come from efforts by President Trump's administration, yes. Absolutely it is fair. Kamala Harris has no medical reason whatsoever for this objection since medical reasons are, and will be, abundantly available and consultable. She just doesn't trust a forthcoming vaccine because she feels it will be developed too quickly and Orange Man Bad. If she ever gets power, she will miraculously become pro-vax again--even if it is based on half-assed medical information. That's just the way people like her think. btw - I am not in favor of mo

  28. Next follows Bahrain, and some interesting ramifications. It is clear that the moderate Arab states have long been tired of the Palestinians - who predictably are mighty upset at these 'betrayals' - for holding out of a peace accord. Next that with Iran's threat to the region, they'd rather side with Israel. And - the timing of these diplomatic moves: just shortly pre-US elections, shows they are openly throwing in with and supporting President Trump, for whom this is a feather in his statesman cap so bettering his chances for re-election. (Maybe, also gaining the USA as a potential ally).

  29. “Connecting the dots” can be done very poorly at one extreme to very well at the other extreme. On the very poor end are conspiracy theories, which typically have lots of dots and the connections are mostly imagined. On the opposite end are elegant mathematical proofs. There are enough dots – none superfluous – that the proof is not immediately obvious, and the connections are rigorous.

I didn’t put smiley faces on Marxism, or critical race theory, or postmodernism. I saw your switcheroo. It’s very clear that I wrote about NBA players, their awareness (or lack thereof) of Marxism, and why they support Black Lives Matter, the slogan or popular movement. Of course, this does not imply they wholly support the founders of Black Lives Matter and their political philosophy. Also, I said not

  36. "To eliminate [racism]". No, in order to foster racism merjet. BLaMe. When race is one's tool it must cut both ways. For your 'group' against the other 'group'. Denigrating the white race because of true or imagined racism, past or present, is equally racist-collectivist. When you hear of "equality" today, you can know that it's supremacy they want. What it is is a minority of dissidents and cop-outs within the blacks, who could not succeed in one of the freest and wealthiest nations, have taken the easy route of pointing out everybody else by race for their lacks.

We are not a color or a culture, but a species. Next, remove your children from the public school system and educate them properly. Rebel, revolt, disobey, throw off your slave chains--or die.

  44. Trump’s tweet about ‘getting people in order to test vaccines and therapeutics’ is way off-base. It is doctors and hospitals in many places around the U.S. that recruit people for clinical trials. It’s problematic to persuade people to participate when they may get a placebo instead of whatever thing is being tested. For therapeutics to treat Covid-19, there aren’t that many people who have Covid-19, they have different severities, and there are competing therapeutics. Whoop-do-do! Is MSK imagining that Trump is hinting at his intervening in conducting clinical trials in

Long before Floyd stopped moving and grumbling they should have checked his condition and rendered aid. They were so ignorant they didn't even realize he was no longer moving or even breathing--and still pressing down on his neck. It didn't even occur to Chauvin that he was pressing down on an unconscious person, let alone a dead one. In a similar situation many years ago, I was working security o
