  1. What's Up With Harvey? Just so people know what I'm talking about months and years later, here's a NYT story from yesterday: Harvey Weinstein Is Fired After Sexual Harassment Reports People can talk about the pros and cons and victims and gossip and creepiness and abuses and so on about this dude, but something more is going on than taking down a pervert. The left is piling on Weinstein and they mean hardcore business. They want blood and they want it to hurt real bad before the kill. Don't forget, he is (or was ) pals with former President Obama. After a lot of right wing mockery about the silence of Meryl Streep and other A list actors (and sundry A list celebrities) on Harvey's sexual bullying over decades, it seems like the gates of hell have now been opened on him from those very same stars. Everybody and their brother is soapboxing all of a sudden. Hell, they didn't even do that with Anthony Weiner and there were photos of his junk all over the Internet. And everybody and their brother is saying they didn't know about Harvey, had no clue about Harvey, etc. etc. etc. They are shocked, shocked, shocked about Harvey, they piously clamor! (When everybody knew or heard stories for decades, of course. Like with Cosby.) So what's up with Harvey? Why is Harvey Weinstein all of a sudden the scapegoat of a leftwing mainstream that magically has become more Puritanical than fundamentalist Christians? If I find out anything, I will let you know. And if you find out anything, please share... Michael EDIT: Breitbart is keeping a live update thing going with a constantly changing headline (started two days ago, this edit being on Oct. 12): **Live Updates** — Harvey Weinstein Scandal
  2. Bill Nye the Silence Guy I thought of putting this in science, but being jailed for thought control is more about politics and propaganda. Bill Nye now wants to jail people he deems Climate Change deniers. Bill Nye, "Science Guy," Open to Jail Time for Climate Change Skeptics Nick Gillespie Apr. 15, 2016 Hit & Run Blog Reason He thinks intimidating scientific inquiry with jail time is good if it disagrees with his views. That's why he's now "The Silence Guy." He wants to silence his opponents not with reason and arguments, but with the police. I have to disagree with Sarah Palin on one point recently. Palin: Bill Nye ‘as much a scientist as I am’ By Timothy Cama 04/14/16 The Hill Well, according to Bill Nye's Wikipedia entry, he is more than a kid's show actor, at least to some extent. He's an actual scientist. He invented a sundial. Seriously... You can't make this shit up. Calling Bill Nye a scientist is more of a sinecure-like honor from the scientists and government climate cartel because of his propaganda. Calling his sundial a scientific discovery is like letting one of the Kardashians conduct a few bars of a Beethoven Symphony in Carnegie Hall and calling her a conductor... Michael
  3. I have some moderate acquaintence with Objectivist-influenced psychological theories, but there is something that has been bothering me the last few months. Quite frequently, if one finds an article about Ayn Rand in some media outlet you will see all sorts of shrill and absolutely insane claims made about her. I've heard the same sort of things at University - one guy from New York I was trying to talk to asked me what Objectivism was, and after I made a brief explanation he went on to tell me that Ayn Rand was behind modern depopulation movements so that "the elite could have more for themselves". I tried to explain that this made no economic sense, given Rand's views on division of labor and capital formation, but it was too late for this gentlemen. I've seen 'documentaries' and conspiracy yarns (often from the Lyndon LaRouche camp) that portray her as some sort of sadist and a cartoon caricature of a 'social Darwinist' (a nebulius anti-concept invented to attack anything smacking of inegalitarianism). Anyone who actually reads Rand will find zero support for any of this. Her actual language is highly reminescent of eudaemonism and liberalism, even if someone disagreed with her individualism and various epistemic views the things they say about here are beyond possibility of even being mistakes; they're witless slander that no one who has ever read Rand could actually believe.
