Socialism is Unethical

In response to Caitlin Johnstone’s article, I’d like to offer this rebuttal.  I have loads of respect for this journalist, I agree with her on most of her points of view, except this and the fact she’s clearly not researched weather modification/geoengineering, but that’s another post.

Rugged Individualism Cannot Save Us, Only Enlightened Collectivism Can

I know the arguments and I’ve lived them in post-Soviet countries.  Being the simpleton I’ve been called I do find it valuable to make the complicated simple, whittle it down to the essential.  Socialism is unethical.  That’s all that matters to me.

I don’t like to be bullied, most folks don’t.  Whether that bully is another individual or a group, it’s wrong.  What happens in practicality with collectivism, after the niceties of fairness and group-think wear off, is manipulation, a constant shifting of the goal post, gaslighting, dehumanizing, celebrating mediocrity.

Imagine this as it often happens within a typical master/slave dynamic, like with parents toward their children.  When Mom wants her teenager to think for herself she’ll say: “So, if all your friends jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, would you do it too?”

Yet the very same mom will insist her daughter does not elope and wears white to her wedding, and invites the right people, and all sorts of other group-think behavior if it suits her fancy.  You might chalk this up to that’s just how the world works, but clearly upon deeper reflection it’s obvious this is not ethical: It’s not based on consistent and universal principles, it’s based on the whims of what the mother finds ‘right’ in the moment.

We are naturally collective, that’s why we need the balancing power of strong individuation.  ‘Rugged individuals’ don’t go off to conquer new territory, whether in land, mind or sea, in order to be alone, alienated with their creation beyond kin or company.  They do it in service to something, and that something is often called ego, but in fact ego alone doesn’t get one very far, unless there’s a crowd there serving that ego.

To see what collectivism, or socialism as it’s currently named, will look like as a worldwide system, one needs only consider it in a practical confined context.  In healthy families it works brilliantly.  But what happens in unhealthy ones, or when the tribe gets larger?

What about in a business setting, for example?  Someone in that business is taking a bigger risk, someone is more competent, more popular, more trusted, more diligent, more something.  That’s just how we are wired, we follow the weak at our peril. 

Organizing around the weakest links is what’s required of socialism, for ‘equity’s’ sake, but in nature this creates the same predator/prey situation as in any work environment.  We must collaborate, we must cooperate, but not at the expense of the will of the strong, the natural leaders.

“It is precisely these generalities of character, governed by forces of which we are unconscious, and possessed the normal of individuals of a race in much the same degree—it is precisely these qualities I say that in crowds become common property. In the collective mind the intellectual aptitudes of the individual, and in consequence their individuality, are weakened.  The heterogeneous is swamped by the homogeneous, and the unconscious qualities obtain the upper-hand.” Gustav LeBon’s The Crowd

28E91D5B-F535-4F07-B3E6-56B4EE721067

I don’t believe in free will.  I think will is very expensive indeed.  What will the strong do if they are constantly undermined, manipulated, bullied by the crowd?

The incompetent will pull too much on the competent to the point they quit, or to the point their mojo is reduced to such a level as to become ineffectual.  This is why Ayn Rand’s work is so relevant and poignant on the political level.  How does power work?  Well, above all, it’s an aphrodisiac for those who seek it.

But, is that what the ‘rugged individualist’ is seeking, necessarily?  This is an assumption that’s often brandied about as fact by collectivist types.

In crowds it is stupidity and not mother-wit that is accumulated.  It is not all the world, as is so often repeated, that has more wit than Voltaire, but assuredly Voltaire that has more wit than all the world, if by ‘all the world’ crowds are to be understood.” LeBon

We need more rugged individuals, not fewer.  We squash them, even in this supposedly most free country and beacon of individualism, we force them from the earliest age to conform and comply.

This feeds tyranny, no doubt, but not for the reasons collectivists think.  It’s not because a few rogue elements get past the socialization and rise up to rule the roost out of sheer force of individual will.   The tough skin the individual acquires by fighting group-think his entire childhood and adolescence becomes armor for some, but more often the individual succumbs to the pressure.  Only the toughest survive not because they are beaten down by the competition, but because their potential rivals are beaten down by the crowd.  That works really well for the ruthless.

”Thus the State never intentionally confronts a man’s sense, intellectual or moral, but only his body, his senses.  It is not armed with superior wit or honesty, but with superior physical strength.  I was not born to be forced.  I will breathe after my own fashion.  Let us see who is the strongest.  What force has a multitude? They force me to become like themselves.  I do not hear of men being forced to live this way or that by masses of men. What sort of life were that to live?  When I meet a government which says to me, “Your money or your life,” why should I be in haste to give it my money? . . . I am not responsible for the successful working of the machinery of society. I am not the son of the engineer.  I perceive that, when an acorn and a chestnut fall side by side, the one does not remain inert to make way for the other, but both obey their own laws, and spring and grow and flourish as best they can, till one, perchance, overshadows and destroys the other.  If a plant cannot live according to its nature, it dies; and so a man.” Henry David Thoreau ‘Civil Disobedience and Other Essays

The rugged individualists I know are more interested in adventure than in conquering; more interested in creating than in destroying, more interested in ethics than power.

The technocracy is ruled by the ‘law of large numbers’ that is — “BIG DATA” — that is, the crowd.

C22856E9-9F1A-470B-8981-71363208C36C

I wonder if the average person were to be presented with a simple and straight-forward question whether the answer would come out in favor of the ‘rugged individual’:

If you were forced to have someone rule over you, would you rather it were a great individual or a machine of collective consensus?”

I don’t think I need a ruler at all, but if there were no other choice, I know my answer.  

But then, I consider myself to be a rugged individualist.

Is there a point when Americans will say, “Enough is enough!”?

We’ve long led the world in all things fake, but surely, there is a limit, right?

Fake cheese was already an affront to me as a teenager, as soon as I came back from my first trip to France.  I surely sounded snobby in my refusals to any longer group Velveeta and American cheese slices in the same category as real cheese.  I’d already drawn my line in the sand back then, but fake foods of all kinds are now more than ever the mainstay of American cuisine.

cheeseYT
Me, a cheese-maker? Didn’t see that comin’!

Fake boobs are still on the increase; fake facial features now the norm;  now we even have fake genders.

And as if that weren’t enough to be the last straw, folks have accepted fake weather.

These days are dire indeed.  While I’m not particularly hopeful things will improve any time soon, I’m not particularly pessimistic either.  As odd as this will probably sound to most, it’s by paying attention to the doom-and-gloomers that I find strength.

Decker, Dispatches from the Aslyum, where musical offerings come with every post.

These are the folks who see through the spin. These are the folks who care enough to take a stand, who educate themselves and then courageously and relentlessly find any other way they possibly can to educate others.  

These are my virtual mentors.

It’s the hordes of rose-colored glasses folks that make me want to scream and rant and throw verbal daggers.  It’s these ninnies whose ignorance and apathy inspire such ‘hate speech’ to which they whine and want to make laws to protect themselves further from anyone pricking the bubble of their own delusions!

Sometimes I have to dive very deep into my wellspring of empathy to remember that many folks are dealing with major drama and disease in their lives and for us all we have every aspect of our culture stacked against what is our actual reality.  Many, a great many, Americans live more in a virtual reality than in a real one.  We are now several generations raised primarily by screens, starting with the TV.

The world of nature is no longer the norm, and this is what most scares me.  I have a very difficult time relating to those who, at still this very late stage, are not able to sense any danger in our position as humans at all and are perfectly willing to lay their very lives, and all of ours along with them, directly into the hands of a complete technological takeover of society.

IA & the G-Mafia

Deconstructing the law of large numbers and the wisdom of the crowd, our new and forever hero.  I am he.  You are me.  We’re all one big happy family.

At the mercy of a God, as we have always been.  Only it’s a new God.

Similar to the old one, don’t worry.  Same, same, but different.

You see, because AI can do it better than me, better than you, and that’s good.  Feel comforted.  AI will take care of you, of your pets, of your globe or plane or island, wherever you want to live, all One in the  G-machine.

Beekeeping Today Podcast

“Dr. Jerry Bromenshenk and Dr. David Firth from the Univerisity of Montana are working together on a new application for beekeepers called Bee Health Guru.  The application uses artificial intelligence (AI) to listen to the sound and based upon complex algorithms and learned history, can provide a diagnosis of the colony’s health. Simply amazing.
Jerry and David join Jeff & Kim on this episode to talk about the history of the technology and the ongoing research of the technology under-pinnings of the cell phone app. At the beginning of the podcast, you can hear Jeff listening to a audio clip of a 2-deep colony of bees at rest. Then suddenly, no… instantly, their tone changes. Could you tell what happened? The audio file was provided by Dr. Bromenshenk. In the recording, a colony of honey bees ‘at rest’ are given one (1) drop of toluene.  The communication through the hive was instantaneous. Bees communicate more than we knew and the Bee Health Guruapp hopes to help us translate just what they’re saying!”

It’s better this way.  Trust them.  They’re on our side, as always.

Just sit there nice and cozy. Oops, lift your feet, the robo-vacuum coming through!

Can we get you more kool-aid, dear?

Or, might you consider taking an interest in an actual life, with living creatures, which AI is not and . . . ?

It’s not, right?  We still know the difference, right?!

Weather Disasters (Take III)

Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, August 2005.

Hurricane Ike, Galveston, September 2008

“Tornado”? Unnamed, undocumented by local news, Rural East Texas April 2019
Another ‘severe storm’ expected tonight.  A month of ‘tornadoes’ through our region, which we chose precisely because it was: ‘North of hurricane zone and south of tornado alley’.  Not anymore.

I’m still at a loss for words. But don’t worry, not for long.  Let’s let the photos speak for themselves, for now.  East Texas is being weather bombed, while the local news sugar coats and bypasses. Consider me PISSED OFF.

No deaths, but considerable fear, chaos, lies and destruction.  Just what the perfect non-lethal globalist warfare mongers strive for the most.

From a leaked Wyeth Pharmaceuticals internal memo dated August 27th, 1979 to Mr. Larry Hewlett from Allen Bernstein, Wayne quotes regarding the DTaP vaccine, which was the one that caused his child’s injury: 

“After the reporting of the SIDS case in Tennessee, we discussed the merits of limiting distribution of a large number of vials from a single lot, to a single state, county or city health department, and obtained agreement from the senior management staff to proceed with such a plan. . . allocation of stock to distributions centers is designed by lot number in a manner designed to leave the maximum variety of lot numbers in great valley, and marietta to serve substantial orders. Managers and DCs carrying average inventories of over 3,000 packages, approximate, have been requested to advise FSRD of any orders exceeding 2,000 vials. FSRD will then designate shipment by lot number, furnishing additional stock as needed. 

So basically what they’re saying here, is they noticed that their vaccine was causing SIDS in a small geographic area, so rather than recall the product, what they did, was a specific lot number of this vaccine that was causing SIDS. So they split it up and sent it around the country to different geographic areas, so that it skewed the data.”

If this is surprising to anyone, perhaps you will recall this company was later in hot water over another lawsuit, according to Wiki:

Rapamune:

A “whistleblower suit” was filed against Wyeth in 2005 alleging that the company illegally marketed their drug Rapamune. Wyeth is targeted in the suit for off-label marketing, targeting specific doctors and medical facilities to increased sales of Rapamune, trying to get current transplant patients to change from their current transplant drugs to Rapamune and for specifically targeting African-Americans. According to the whistleblowers, Wyeth also provided doctors and hospitals with kickbacks to prescribe the drug in the form of grants, donations and other money.[26][27] A US House of Representatives committee, led by Rep. Edolphus Towns is investigating Wyeth for these abuses.[28][29]

Why are the same poison-pushing corporations still thriving despite repeated lawsuits and public complaints?

https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/the_making_of_a_monster_were_all_lab_rats_in_the_governments_secret_experiments

According to Wayne it’s a vast conspiracy of the darkest order.  As difficult as this is to digest, I agree.

The end game feeds the technocracy agenda—create the ideal synthetic man—‘save’ man from his emotions, make him satisfied without messy human interactions and a better worker/civilian/military automaton, craft him using crazy concoctions into a useful tool for the cybernetic age.

Addictions & Distractions: Part 4

Recovery: Solutions (Final)

Because I’m fascinated with all things ‘culture’ I could not skip the rabbit hole of addiction in modern American life.  I’ve done a good bit of exploration in the last few months and I’m pleased to say, I’ve had enough already.

And, I’ve managed to come to a few conclusions.

  1. If a 12-Step Program has worked for you in getting sober and/or clean, congratulations, you are the exception to the vast majority.
  2. The 12-Step Programs have flooded and over-run the recovery market despite any scientific validity to their claims or efficacy in their numbers and despite clear conflicts of interest in public/private partnerships. It is a huge money-making industry globally.
  3. If a 12-Step Program program has not worked for you, you are in the vast majority, and there are other options, if you know where to look.

I’ve heard or read many accounts that Alcoholics Anonymous is a cult. I’d call it a ‘soft cult’.

There is no doubt it is brainwashing and many in these programs who dare to do the due-diligence of intellectual inquiry readily admit this fact.

I have a great deal of respect for awareness and honesty, so I am not in any way arguing that those in the throws of active addiction might not need a good dose of brainwashing. More power to y’all, paint those mantras all over your walls, because it’s awesome you’re still alive and we want to keep it that way as long as possible!  (On that note, thank you to Rick, who shared stories and information and found success in a 12-Step Program, as well as being the one who was the impetus for me in this exploration of addiction.)

But, I really wish now to speak to those very many who may need or want help and have not been successful with the current acceptable brainwashing techniques or soft cults.

B07A6FD1-BEC0-4E83-ACBF-D93B31FCEEFD.jpeg

Unlike what AA, NA and others are telling you, you did not ‘fail‘. It’s not that you ‘didn’t want it bad enough‘ or that you ‘haven’t reached rock bottom yet’ or that you ‘didn’t work The Steps‘ or that you ‘just don’t get it‘.  If you continue to go back into 12-Step recovery programs again and again, which is most often the case, thinking this time you’ll ‘succeed‘, consider this:  To keep doing the same thing over and over again but expect different results is the hallmark of insanity.  

If you’ve heard this nonsense about yourself, and believed it, you’re still buying into the biggest lie in 12-Step brainwashing propaganda. Stop that now!

It didn’t work for you, that’s all. Not at all unusual. Now, don’t stop there, and find something else that will work, please.

Here’s some others who also say it didn’t work for them either, and who found other ways to deal with their addictions.

The Business of Recovery

How has it come to this?  I think James Corbett has a big part of that answer right here:

https://youtu.be/LfHEuWaPh9Q  

The Corbett Report: The Crisis of Science

We’re trusting the wrong people!  We’re losing our skills of discernment!  We’re losing our skills, all of them, along with our common sense!

Some might be inclined to wonder why a homesteading blog has anything to do with culture. What do addictions & distractions, conspiracies or occult knowledge, or geopolitics, or geoengineering, or junk science, or spirituality have to do with growing food, raising livestock, or just in general reclaiming our wise traditions?

Addictions and distractions are what’s rotting our culture from the inside-out. Our institutions are not solving these crises, they are exacerbating them. Quite possibly on purpose.

Yet folks continue to support them, continue to throw money at them.  Why?

kakistocracy

I think our ancestors were smarter than that, or we wouldn’t be here right now as witnesses to the masses skipping to the guillotine!  

Maybe it’s time we started listening more to some good old-fashioned common sense rather than to white coats paid by blue bloods to serve black ties?  (Several puns intended; let me count the ways!)

We’ve had a good run at addictions this time around, distractions are another rabbit hole for another time.

Thanks for joining me on this latest little wondering and wandering. Brighter posts to come, surely! 🙂
