FK – Well he certainly wasn’t on the commie news network. So what do purposes do the brits have for letting him run his mouth in such a manner? Not that I disagree with much of it.
The purposes of gods and golden rules
Barry Bright May 5, 2017
As usual, this got me started:
The problem with the ‘golden rule’ is that most sheeple and many people don’t mind being slaves to one form of authoritarianism or another and thus have no problem voting their neighbors into the same slavery.
‘Everything’ won’t just ‘work out,’ because we let morons vote. We also let sheeple vote for a check or a job or some other benefit and we let whores enhance revenue and protect the state and its laws for a check and a retirement plan and we let our soldiers go to foreign lands to kill for ‘democracy‘ and power and resources and one insane philosophy or another that says its god should be the one to get to burn billions, including little kids and babies, alive in fire forever.
Things ‘worked out’ in this country for 200+ years as the slaves hoed tobacco and picked cotton and in the Soviet Union where 70 million, more or less, were murdered by human ignorance.
Everyone who ‘believes in’ a divine being is ‘religious,’ can’t have one without the other. Once you say “There’s a divine being,” you usually start asking what it really is and really wants which history shows leads to all kinds of problems.
Not that religion doesn’t have its purposes, the elites have always used it as a way to keep the slaves working while waiting for paradise in the next life.
Still works. Before or after that the priests who usually work for the kings, or vice versa, set about writing down ‘the rules‘ all the plebes have to exist by which of course usually include “Obey the magistrates appointed over you because they were appointed by god,” and “All that happens is ‘god’s will‘ anyway so you may as well show up for work today,” and “Pay your taxes, to Caesar, or whatever, cause all god wants is your soul,” and on and on. Get the idea?
What especially amuses me are those who don’t live any more of a ‘christian’ life than my dog does, who will jump out of their pants to defend a belief system that obviously doesn’t mean much at all to them except as a way to escape eternal punishment or to gain ‘eternal life,’ whatever that might really mean.
I’ve read the ‘new testament‘ a couple times and have been studying it more lately, and those parts of the ancient tribal propaganda I can stand to read, and the more I learn of it the more absurd and disgusting it becomes to me.
It’s really funny how the alleged writers of the new testament couldn’t agree on the genealogy of Jesus or on what happened after his alleged resurrection. How our own governments do the same basic thing the ancient Hebrews or whatever did, call on god or our modern god, democracy, another false god(and don’t miss the comments on that link), in the process of murdering those whose land and resources we seek to obtain or obtain for others.
Most sheeple and people have a very simplistic view of what their chosen ‘belief system’ is or is supposed to be and often can’t cite a single verse of the ancient tribal propaganda of whatever tribe to prove their version, sub-version or subversion one way or another.
The slightly smarter believers can regurgitate a few words of scripture or maybe carry on a real conversation about their theology but still refuse to acknowledge that it is what it is: a collection of writings, fiction, mythology, legend, propaganda, made up or slightly ‘based in real events’(like a modern movie or novel) over a long period of time by people who shared a similar mindset, that of seeking to control others and the world around them and create a more perfect world order under their version, sub-version or subversion of what ‘they’ consider to be ‘right’ or ‘moral.’
I call this the busybody gene. We see it in religious folk and in communists and fascists and in all sorts of other isms.
We do need basic laws and all governments seek to enforce a basic morality, usually for the benefit of the state and those who run it. The elites always consider us to be livestock. There is nothing more important to understand than that.
The purpose of ‘the law‘ should be to keep real criminals out of society’s mainstream. Thus we should have a militia force whose sole purpose is to closely watch/regulate the governments and send elected, hired and appointed malefactors to the work camps when they seek to enslave us. We need police who understand their first allegiance is to human Liberty and our Bills of Rights. We need soldiers who know the same and who will uphold their oaths and put the liberty of the people before corporate profit.
We need to bring the troops home and have them hunt our real enemies who have long been here for our domestic blood enemies with white skin do not simply disagree with us they are waging war on human liberty and our Bills of Rights.
Waking up is hard to do and I sometimes wonder if our life spans weren’t shortened so that too many wouldn’t exist long enough to figure things out.
Long experience has shown me that often all one has to do to be labeled an asshole or ‘know-it-all’ is to act as if one attempts to know anything at all. The average sheeple would rather die than think or take on personal responsibility for the world around it.
And far worse is that rare individual who has the courage to say what will be required. Few on the ‘right’ or the ‘left’ can stomach this, especially since their stomachs are so full nowadays of steak and ice cream and the processed foods that fill our over-stuffed super markets.
When our Founders wrote of the ‘pursuit of happiness’ I think they meant it was an individual choice, not an idea of what happiness should be enforced from above. Those who seek to enforce their idea of ‘happiness’ on all deserve no respect, whether they do it at the point of a gun or at the threat of eternal punishment. Simple truth.
However we do have to ‘educate’ or rather indoctrinate each generation of blank slates, children, in a love of Liberty or they will fall into the same trap humanity has sought to escape since someone invented a ‘new cave order’ by rolling malefactors around in the fire for all to see.
It’s hard to worry about one’s ego when one is sitting in prison for breaking some law written by some authoritarian or another that forbade possessing some thing that they didn’t think we should possess. Whose ‘ego’ is winning then?
Ever notice that a lot of ‘higher thought’ or ‘morality’ is just stuff someone made up according to whatever situation they found themselves in? Nowadays we have shelves full of ‘self help’ books and an internet full of memes that illustrate this beautifully.
What should we already be doing about it so we can live in a free country they lie to us and tell us we exist in, when we so obviously don’t?
What are we but little bits and pieces that we pick up over time? A sad fact is most struggle their entire existences in this world to pick up as little as possible. I’ve long had a natural curiosity, and I developed a natural distrust of anyone who expects me to ‘believe’ what ‘they’ would have me believe simply because they claim it’s ‘right.’
As a teenager that had attended a rural southern Baptist church all my life I got tired of seeing my peers get ‘re-dedicated’ and re-saved by a god they obviously didn’t really understand and would probably never put forth the effort to while the adults were telling me obvious bullshit because to them I was still a child, or in reality, because the average adult is still a child.
I remember one cousin, after we had reached legal age, if I remember correctly, discussing the rural folklore that claimed the cattle in the field bowed down at midnight on Christmas Eve. I don’t know of anyone who ever went to look.
An age old irony of so-called human civilization is that in our efforts to become civilized, if indeed that’s what most even seek, we can’t fathom that the height of civilization is to learn to leave others the hell alone and that would include not forcing others to lie about what they think we are or do.
The real golden rule is to not do to another what they don’t want done to them unless they have proven themselves incapable of existing among others without harming others or their property.
But I expect it’ll be a long time before the tool-using monkeys get smart enough to apply it on a regular basis. Religion is really cultural, in the way ‘the scriptures’ are interpreted and lived in each generation and in each individual. I’ve sat around enough campfires listening to various versions, sub-versions and subversions to know this to be true.
Change is coming, however slowly.
It’ll probably take a few more wars over resources or power or over whose sadistic god will get to burn billions alive in fire forever before they figure it out.
And then we have the illusion that some systems will ever ‘co-exist’:
FK – So why do we tolerate this trash, I mean the trash that wants to let the fundies in our country so they can(maybe) get them to vote commie(for a govt. check)????
Even mainstream ‘conservatives’ are finally seeing what I and others have been screaming at them for years:
FK – I’m not sure how much ‘ego’ will have to do with that.
And it’s still one insanity fighting another for the control of the hearts and minds of the human species.
And of course he misses the fact that the ‘first’ civil war was the last war fought over Liberty and the bad guys won and we’ve been reading their history books ever since.
I really like what this guy had to say(from the comment section mentioned above):
Brazen Heist LetThemEatRand Feb 18, 2017 8:42 PM
So then Plutocracy is the right word, a subset of Oligarchy.
The problem must be human nature down to its core. I’m always fascinated with how human psychology changes between the individual and the collective. Man as a collective creature behaves much more irrationally, as the collective IQ drops substantially and man feels part of a group, thus exonerating himself of responsibility and sense. A sort of halo effect. As you say, we have collectively allowed the usurpation itself.
People collectively look for a sheperd. People give up their power too easily in a group. Also self-interest has always been a problem, the “agency problem”. Democracy, like Communism, is proving to be too ideal given our behaviour. We are also far from ready for Anarchism, which is kind of alot like Communism if one really thinks about it, except there is the anarcho-capitalist flavour which I prefer. But I’ll admit, humanity is not yet ready for that either. We can’t even handle Captialism. All these are ideals, but the Hegellian Dialectic has trapped us into a pendulum from one extreme to the other. And here we are swinging yet again. When one gets tired of the predictability of the pendulum, you start trading on it and making money out of it.
Democracy, like religion, is another form of manipulation:
The word they used was ‘unalienable.’
And don’t miss this segment:
FK – Remember when the official deficit was less than a trillion dollars?
The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiters of our rights. WE ARE!
And from another ‘democracy’:
FK – Your ‘democracy’ is a lie and what got you in the mess you’re in. “Establishing democracy is the first step in the revolution.” – Karl Marx
Many, that you wouldn’t dare listen to, could have told you to stay out of the EU in first place. Like the UN it’s a Marxist globalist creation.
“It’s as if Europe is being run by our enemies…” Uh, no, it IS being ran by the enemies of human Liberty. And they will have to be hunted to extinction to rid us of them. Nothing you say to most of them will make any difference. They will still be lying when hell thaws out again.
FK – From his list of links:
“Members of parliament are much better informed than the public as a whole, and they recognise their decisions have real weight.”
FK – Apparently this cat has never sat in on a legislative committee hearing. But then it’s a Marxist lying for a Marxist rag and of course excluding a lot of information, like what a ‘liberal’ is(commie trash).
But I have to agree with the professor on who should vote, but for vastly different reasons. If they don’t understand human Liberty and limited govt. they don’t need to vote.
FK – The roots of your problems go back to WWII when with our empire’s help you defeated the lessor of two evils and allowed the greater evil, watered-down communism, by many cute names, to rule you.
When they demanded your guns you surrendered them without a fight. That was your ‘democracy’ speaking. Now you are full-blown slaves and it was done by white-skinned Europeans, not brown skinned fundie ragheads. Now your domestic blood enemies are driving their western culture destroying bayonet into your hearts and you fully deserve it.
But then we do to, just not as much. Because we should’ve opened “Liberal”(commie) trash season a long time ago.
Meanwhile on the continent:
FK – It’s not ‘feminism.’ It’s communism by another name. Your ‘democracy’ brought this on you. It’s time to throw ‘democracy’ on the trash heap of history and demand Liberty.
To our next door neighbor:
FK – What is ‘royal assent?’
The problem is giving any authoritarians ‘political capital’ in the first place.
Our tolerance of them will be our destruction.
Will we be saved?:
FK – As I’ve written before Trump was probably programmed to throw a few bones to the ‘conservatives’ because the elites see the sun setting on their hegemony, at least in this country and they needed someone to keep his finger in the dike until they had time to re-group and slither out from their dark corner with a new plan and slightly altered lies.
One of the bones:
FK – That’s a good bone but we still have a long way to go.
And the more I think about it the arrogant officer class in the military is probably hoping Trump and the rest of the milquetoast ‘gun rights’ activists will accept this and move on instead of demanding that everyone has their right to carry(their most basic right, that of self defense) on any federal property acknowledged and not ‘granted.’
And which direction will Trump truly take?:
FK – Keeping the commies out of power would be a good thing but the outcomes show that wasn’t the real goal huh? They won in all but Korea and even there kept half the country.
We need to bring our troops home, activate the militias and ‘national guard’ and hunt them here.
And what ‘free speech’ do we truly have?:
FK – So which political correctness is worse? The Euro commies protecting the fundie ragheads in the name of ‘human rights’ or the Euro commies and ‘christians’ and others having a ‘special group’ that no one can criticize?
I call them the unmentionables.
In a free country there’s no such thing as a group whose motives cannot be questioned. When we have that we have a serious problem. We have a serious problem.
It’s already here:
FK – So the white-skinned commies who are our real enemies will be kicked out of their own party? This commie cow is in for a rude awakening.
Are you beginning to see the connections yet?
We here in America take the First Amendment for granted. We switch on the television, we post memes online, we listen to a talk radio host rail against the federal government without ever acknowledging the value of such swashbuckling openness. We can say pretty much anything we want, so long as we don’t put others in direct danger. Attempts to circumscribe this liberty, most famously Oliver Wendell Holmes’ lunkheaded and abused “fire in a crowded theater” ruling that tackled the looming danger posed by Jewish socialists quietly distributing anti-war pamphlets, have ultimately been overturned.
Most other nations don’t have this ironclad protection against censorship. Among them is Great Britain. Charles C.W. Cooke reports on the latest anti-free expression outrage in the Mother Country:
FK – The entire Bill of Rights, insisted on by the anti-federalists as a defense against the constitution, is what makes us exceptional.
Star of BBC reality TV show The Call Centre faces JAIL after posting ‘sick’ Facebook message that ‘anyone born with Down’s Syndrome should be put down’
FK – There are many types of walking ‘vegetables.’ We let too many of them vote. We are in the midst of the zombie apocalypse.
But this is evil:
Under the Malicious Communications Act any ‘indecent or grossly offensive’ message that causes ‘distress or anxiety’ can lead to prosecution.
The maximum punishment is six months in prison and a £5,000 fine. The 1988 law came into force before the widespread use of the internet, e-mail and social networking.
It has since been updated on at least two occasions as the use of social media has exploded.
The police will investigate each case and hand a file to the Crown Prosecution Service who will decide if there is enough evidence to bring charges.
Ministry of Justice figures show 694 individuals were guilty of offences under this Act last year – the highest number for at least a decade and more than 10 times higher than the 64 convictions recorded in 2004.
Last year the Government announced measures to increase the maximum sentence for trolls who are convicted under the Malicious Communications Act from six months to two years.
Utah officers, hot under the collar? A pair of Utah police officers, suckers for a group of bikini clad girls, have been suspended for allowing the beachwear babes shoot off their “guns.” The men were engaging in firearm practice when – in a very beer commercial-esque moment of lascivious spontaneity – a busload of babes in bikinis rolled in. The officers, clearly overcome by the moment, handed over their police-issued firearms to the chesty chics, who blew off a few rounds while the men sat and “supervised.”
Writes The Associated Press on March 8, via Fox News: “The Utah Department of Public Safety imposed the discipline in December on Rob Wilkinson, a Utah Highway Patrol sergeant, and Justin Hansen, a State Bureau of Investigation agent. Wilkinson, who received a three-day suspension, and Hansen, who received a one-day suspension, were at the Big Shot Ranch near Grantsville in June when British bikini models posed for photos and were videotaped firing guns for a calendar called ‘Hot Shots.’”
Wilkinson and Hansen each were cited for “bringing discredit” to the force, and because they actually appeared in the related video made by “Hot Shots,” for “wearing their uniform during a promotion for a product.”
FK – We know what the ‘product’ is but what are they really selling?
The queen and the “Liberal”(commie) trash in their govt. were probably angry that some of their subjects got to touch a weapon of any kind, that not being the best way to keep us enslaved.
Over here it’s about simple human biology and envy…
Any publicity is good publicity?
Don’t watch this unless you want your man card punched:
FK – I’m thinking I may have posted this a few months back when the story about the guardsmen broke. Oh well, it didn’t hurt me to watch it twice.
