‘Trust no one’: Modernization, paranoia and conspiracy culture

An interesting read (pdf file): ‘Trust no one’: Modernization, paranoia and conspiracy culture

There are quite a few people who could learn something from this – or not. The problem is confirmation bias – people who subscribe to connedspiracy will only seek out what validates their bias, i.e., they do not want to actually learn anything new – certainly not anything that might confound or confuse their particular bias.[...] Read More

What Is Wrong With America

Be prepared to get your stupid on. The Atlantic discusses the trends and changes that have occurred in America.

The facts presented might surprise you. I do recommend you find the time to read this article all the way through. There are some real nuggets of observable truth in there. I don’t agree with a few of the statements of facts made, but the rest is spot-on.[...] Read More

Burning Fossil Fuels Almost Ended All Live On Earth

This is a pretty decent article, very informative: Burning Fossil Fuels Almost Ended All Life on Earth

Even this author gets it. Hardly any plant life will exist above 40C – which means no food for anything else. Uh oh, humans too? Yes.

This is part of the true narrative that is being continually suppressed. The oil industry has long known, more so than anybody else that the extraction and burning of fossil fuels was the worst thing humans could probably do (a nearly endless number of documents and papers exist here). But none of this evidence gathered over many decades seemed to matter, the practice of oil extraction and burning was extolled throughout the entire world, leading to planet to the edge of extinction.[...] Read More

Selling The Apocalypse

Salon has an article about doomsday preppers and the hucksters behind this movement. Some may not agree, but the article is dead right. I’ve publicly come out against the false reasons that so many have embraced and the liars in the movement that are behind this. And I was right and still am – not a single ‘event’ that was claimed happened. But the prepper movement has died and hucksters are desperate to find another way to shove their products at you while fleecing your pockets.[...] Read More

Manufacturing Myth

Over many years (no less then 3 decades and more!), I have had to take stock in myself and what it is that I believe. Usually, this follows a established pattern of awareness, learning, discarding, modification and adoption. What I believe and hold to be true has had out of necessity and of evidence, had to change.

We all tend to ‘believe’ in whatever actually works for us. It has to fit our lives reasonably well, otherwise we are simply too uncomfortable to change much. But when it does, it does not always last indefinitely, especially if there is new information or awareness that challenges the belief.[...] Read More

The Country Gives Up

Since President Dumpf declared climate change a hoax, he’s been busy making sure that this critical topic to human survival is ignored as much as possible.

Predictably, many Americans are in lock-step with this clown. Parroting the same useless and irrelevant arguments as their distinguished leader, the topic of climate change remains hated.

In some circles, it was hard to predict that this would be the direction the nation would take. The American media has been quite complicit with climate change denialism. But it’s not like that elsewhere, just here.[...] Read More

May Day

May 14, 2017. The weather around here cannot decide if it is spring or winter. The grass is green now, but it is very cold. Burning wood again. It’s dropping to near-freezing at night.

It’s been the strangest, coldest and wettest spring that I’ve ever seen. I haven’t been paying much attention to what is happening elsewhere, but I heard Kansas had a freak snowstorm and lost nearly the entire wheat crop. Flooding up in Canada.[...] Read More

Protect Your Sponge

Back in 2012, I shut commentary off on this blog. I’d issued a warning about how comments were being tracked and monitored by various agencies. Freedom Off – Data Mining On. Since then, commentary has been renenabled, but the points I raised are as valid as ever.

Now I learn that smartphones are being targeted with ultrasonic ‘beacons’, which can be used against you too.[...] Read More

Paranoid and Delusional

If Donald Trump has a dangerous mental illness, according to a group a psychiatrists, what does this say about his supporters?

Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.[...] Read More
