Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Shot; Others Killed, Injured


Mass shooting at grocery store public event in Tucson

At least 6 dead, many injured, a man held.

Are These The Second Amendment remedies being encouraged by some?

This commentary is based on my first flush of feeling about this matter.

With the hate speech pandemic infecting many conservative/right wing media outlets, this kind of evil, thought by the perpetrators as good, may be just the beginning.

Why?

Terror knows it works to cripple free thought and thus Democracy. Those proposing it against fellow Americans are anti-American and antiChristian no matter the public provocations being offered as rationalizations.  This is about ignorance versus understanding at the core level.  As many of us are aware, in the human mind, ignorance, guided by emotional manipulation, can appear to be actual truth.

The terror making individuals are likely both mentally and spiritually highly disturbed.  The question is; Why are so many conservatives advocating openly hostile contempt towards, not only liberals, but the Democratic party as well?

The Many Ways Conservatism Surrenders Reason; The Price of Ignorance

Just Another Fictional Exposé

Let Me Pretend to Just Count The Many Ways Conservatism Surrenders Reason by Cashing in The Price of Ignorance

.

Democracy is a problem for us, plain and simple.

How are we to control the nation’s dialogue?

How do we get the nations attention to focus on and cover our own perspective, yet have those listening believe it is their own?

You saw what history presented for our conservative interest, and how we pivoted to fear, always fear to achieve results.  First we drew attention to the external enemies “that attacked us”.  We achieved more societal and government control through the public’s fear, allowing us to further regiment society.  Once it seemed that the Democrats might prevail, even past our voter suppression strategies, we then pivoted to the enemy within.

Again.  Our control of the population is via fear.  This is a primitive mechanism regarding the unknown. First we pivoted to the unknown outer enemy seemingly everywhere, and now to the internal enemy seemingly everywhere.  This gives us emotional control and direction over our message and entry points into its targets.  I must state here the power of this fear; fear does not need a factual basis.  We can literally invent fear; create images of that which promotes strong insecurity in our followers.

I can say the sky will fall if this happens, yet this cannot be disproven, since it is a projection of insecurity into an unknown future moment of unknowable dynamics.  People cannot assume I am wrong, for my projection cannot be proved wrong.  If I already have their ear, I already have them in my hands, and can put them in my pocket.  This is sales after all, and it moves us away from the dramatic limitations of reality, giving us fantasy to use at will.  Observe the conservative and right wing blogosphere to see what I am alluding to. Yet still we face the issue; how to spread the ideas we wish to indoctrinate the public with.  We must instill insecurity into the public mind to mold them to our will, but how?

The answer is and remains; seduction to our side of the equation.  Fear and status are the prime tag-team contenders for this opportunity for psychological entrapment of the individuals will.  What is not known, becomes the balancing points of belief and opinion.  We are given an open mat to throw our reality trapped opponents in, for unquantifiable insecurity drives many an individuals actual subliminal motivations.  These ever-present fears are often stewing on the surface consciousness back burner; Fear of poverty, fear of God, fear of acceptance, fear of rejection; these all become tools in our box of persuasion.  We leverage unknowns as if they were capital.  And capital they are.

Our Contextual Problem

Those in control of any democratic nation face this dilemma; How can the wealthy and powerful keep what they have plus insure their future for their own, while the nation exist in a pluralistic paradigm were each vote is equal?  After all, there are always more of them than us.  We are at a distinct disadvantage, and yet we prevail.  How?

Seduction to our interest. Plain and simple. We convince the public that their good is inextricably bound to our own.  We become perceived as them. We then can go on to define us versus whomsoever we wish to diminish.  All is indeed not fair in love, in war, or in perception.

There are many ways to do this pivot on perception; propaganda and hired help are the exponents of our viewpoint, but that is too loose and random to be allowed as our only means of conviction.  We must gain access to the public’s faith and trust. We enter this doorway into the public identity by leveraging already trusted institutions. This then, pertains to cosmological assumption and spiritual presumption; Our interest must become tagged to what is, in effect, unquestionable opinion, but believed, and acted upon as if fact.  To not so act in defense of these institutions will be perceived as being in some way wrong.  We are defining truth here, for what are actually followers.  Then that truth is inserted into protected question free zones, be they by religious or philosophical mandate.

Defeating the odds by controlling the game

We are defeating a kind of mathematical odds presented by those who created Democracy and individual freedom.  Those odds are; that in a Democracy, a common interest could emerge where the common ground of  life, or the universe itself, would seem as the right of all.  We must defeat this perception.  We do that with—-Seduction. Most all are driven by opportunism to receive what seems to help them.

Only concepts that submit to hierarchical model are deferred to.  Role status, wealth status, power over, and other kinds of primitive authoritarian perceptions of desire, condition what the person expects of themselves and of others.  With identity contained, behavior tends to be as well.  Now the individuals identity and interest are married to our needs, and ours to theirs.  We can make up most anything and they will believe it, particularly the most vulnerable and impressionable of our followers.

I refer you to Glen Beck and Bill O’Reilly to prove my point, but Rush or anyone else will do.  They all rely on preexisting bias along with no objective reality testing of truthful context.  The alleged subjectively designed context is true to their attitude. This is a move to bypass critical thinking requirements, while promoting acceptance of emotional direction as truth itself.  Conservative propagandist do not require fact or real context checking; they reinforce already existing confirmation biases instilled into their receivers emotional narrative.

Instead of reality, it is bias that is the object of confirmation.  Most any story will do, no matter how fictional. What we are defining is the nature of our adversaries and how they are not good like we are.  Our interest are shared with our followers, while our opposition is perceived as being foolishly biased, or espousing a nefarious agenda upon the gullible.  These psychological tricks will work on all who do not comprehend what truth or critical thinking requirements actually are.  Ignorance is wonderful!

Creating ignorance, becomes a requirement for the emotional control of our followers.  While liberals attempt to change society by solving problems one by one, progressively, we say liberals are the problem.  Society need not change, problems need not be “solved”, but liberalism need be abandoned for all that is conserved to keep its hold over the population.  Though we usually leave the “hold over the population” part out of our sales pitch!  This gives us, not only ignorance to work with, but all problems as offspring of liberalism.  I say checkmate.

We decide what those interest of society are as they pertain to us, and what they are not, as those behaviors or other opinions may help those beyond our home field advantage.  And did I mention having the refs paid off!  Through time and effort, we change the meaning of the national narrative to our conceptual grounds. We change the human formula to insure our need.

The Power of What is NOT Known

What is not known in the population, is that we are pivoting from what might be called objective reasoning, being rational, to rationalization, where context and content are controlled to offer directed reason.  Our subjects do not recognize the ideological and perceptual containment vessels we have them in both coming and going.  Most of our public does not distinguish between truthful fact based reasoning, and cherry picked conceptual framing; where the argument is tailored to have us give the answer which we wish.  Wish upon a star?  I say; wish upon what is not known!

We leverage ignorance and faith in this endeavor.  We blend these, for they are beyond rational analysis, yet our folks particularly take pride in possessing them.  This is their sublime beauty.  We leverage preexisting institution and mindsets to favor us above the many. Here is the basic equation of have and have not, and most importantly, the rules to both. Faith provides us with the same capital as ignorance; the ability to seduce while the seduction is unseen. This is best carried out right out in the open.  Shame and blame are key figures in herding the masses into our order while they think the are fighting for truth, justice and maybe even the American Way.

Notice how many of our conservative leaders are caught doing the very things they are accusing others of, yet most stay in place.  This is faith above reason, belief trumping reality. This is the key.  We can then always point to the other side when issues arise that may create cognitive dissonance in our faithful. “Look whose talking!” A classic.

We have a Nest to Nurture Our World Views

Conservatism is a perfect hiding ground for your own faults and failings; you can persecute their correction out in society, picking targets here and there, while you excuse your own human frailties in humble public or secret penance.  You outwardly carry on “the fight for good”, while excusing your own surrender to its opposite, yet the public is kept untagged to these psychological machinations driving cognitive dissonance abatement.  You, we, are the good guys, liberals the bad.  Period.  End of discussion.  This perception is a fact in many a molded mind.

Constructing the boogeyman icon known as the Liberal Media, has been a great ploy to taint information coming in that we do not approve of. We can turn institutions into our own Trojan Horses. This is the power of prejudice; we allege the media has an intrinsic bias against what we have defined as the individuals and the nations good.  And it is true; liberalism’s objective bias is a bias against subjective conservative paradigms of all kinds.

We have invested mightily in having the best and brightest minds to fill our conservative think tanks.   We have designer Wedge Issues to cleave the public into two and then four.  We have seeded the talking head establishments with many more conservative trained media informers who have sworn to support “The Cause”.  Yet the tag of disturbing information is;–That Liberal Mainstream Media.  Our folks do not even acknowledge our basic corporate control over it.  We have them coming and going my friends.

When Dumbed Down is Power Up

You all know how the ruse comes down.  It’s like taking candy from a baby.  And this is exactly the infantile state we need the public immersed in; a big old baby crib that we rock.  This rocking effects the baby’s mood; we train them to look forward to our promise of food, food for thought, we bring them comfort and promise. And so we effectively control the baby’s chemistry; their needs and wants become as nutrients delivered by our umbilical cord.  Conservatism retains this baby blanket surrender to comfortable cognitive control; all is well as long as my institutions are well, hence conserved and unchanging.  Now you can let the grown ups do the thinking for you, while telling you all experts agree, or some other comforting pabulum.  We know we are on the right side after all!  What else is there to comprehend?

We define what their life is to be, we lay the future scenarios out into spirituality or materialism, both work on our followers.  We manufacture the parameters of their dreams.  Their whole world view becomes hinged on our interest, as if they were their own.  Three great seducer conductors are our ammunition; Money, Power, and perceived favor of God.  Control these electrochemical optimism conductors, and you control the individuals sense of identity.  This triune power base placed inside the individuals mind frame, allows us to direct their intentions both overtly and covertly when required.  This is how we contain and restrain the common interest of Democracy and individual freedom; making them contingent upon our requirements.

Well.  That’s what you say!

There are tried and true means of disabling valid argument, and having it defer to already polarised perceptions.

Existential relativism is a great intellectual tool, we can relativize perception of contravening results to seem confusing and hypocritical.  The followers minds become anesthetized.  Someone says; ‘You are not facing your contradictions.’ We tell our faithful it is our adversaries (of course!) who are not facing theirs.

If anyone attempts to divert attention by suggesting the errors are ours, we now can say, and be believed, that it is actually they who are hiding from their own wrongdoing  We can in this way, render legitimate questioning as seeming illegitimate, while our followers feel the same; that they are defending what is right. We have inoculated our faithful against critical thinking and true objective analysis, but they are given worthy substitutes! Check the boards folks.  We do this contrapuntal shell-game shift at most every embarrassing truthful revelation.

Did too!  Did not!  Did too! No I didn’t!  It’s you! You did! You are the liar!

This still works as well as it did in childhood.  Remember, we are not looking to actually solve the issues that divide us.  Those are our capital, our means of control to play one off against the other.  Defeating the odds is always the bottom line.  Always, what is the secret narrative that allows the few to possess the many.  And may I add; give us their energy and effort so our lives can be LARGE!

The Currency Of Blind Trust

Here is where conservatism, with its apriori and unquestionable truths, allows belief and identity to prevail over facts and connective context.  No other truth is allowed in, or to stand in consciousness as actual reality. This pandering to prior assumption completes a circle in reasoning; a kind of defensive firewall against objectivity or critical thinking.

These qualities of unaccountability are essential to seduction as well as to our aim to inoculate our followers against ideas and statistical data that do not serve our cause.  In this pursuit of control, emotion is essential to push faith into belief that becomes unchecked against objective reality.  The individual identity is now controlled, while objective reality is effectively cut off from influence.  We can then flush faith into any direction we wish.

In other words, for the person, we control how the universe seems.  Though liberalism produced Democracy and individual freedom, we are now taking them both down by our ad hominem assaults upon reason.  Notice all the Obama abomination gyrations bursting out of our base–they need to be deceived, and we give them what they need.  Even with a birth certificate, for instance, many will not know that the negative presumption is not true.  They are magnetically/emotionally attached to negative perception attached to our enemies, yet presume it the likely case.  This is the blind power of conservatism my friends, embrace it.

This is the power of belief over reality–reality cannot be proven true and belief cannot be proven false to those made unable, or addicted enough to the prescribed outcome of perceptual control.  This is why so much conservatism is buzz word and talking point driven; Thought-terminating clichés and canned concepts wrap and warp thinking up inside a perceived good belief iconography.  We then have defeated the freedom of the human mind to truly perceived for itself, instead, making those individuals our paradigm perception dependents.  Wave that magic wand!  Wave it in circles for circles are self completed; the point proved by the very premise.  No reality need apply.

Tricks of Perceptual Trading

We use existentialism, via the perception of fair and balanced opinion, to make both fact and context ambiguous and essentially confusing, easily tagged as seemingly deceptive. The argument defers to pre held confirmation bias, leaving now with;  “Well. That is your opinion.  I blah, blah, blah… While deceiving our followers, we will have them believe they are fighting deception, while believing they are being solders in the army of right or of God.  This is how we can take Democracy down, entrap the individuals narrative and dreamscape, while making freedom into the image of our own desires.

We can and do defeat Democracy and Freedom while praising them as sacred icons.  We can control the image of God to serve ourselves, while having the followers of God believe they are serving the same.  No problem proposed by connection, or The Commons of Life, or Gods Creation, are big enough to defeat our own permanent desire to stay on top.  We are in control, people, not Democracy, not Freedom, and certainly not anyone’s God.  Look how well we defeated the teachings of Jesus over these last thousand years and made Him into one of us.  Again;  The beauty of ignorance.

A thousand years ago, the bible was altered to demean conscious introspection and increase hierarchical mindsets and authoritarian modalities.  Whole gospels deleted.  Yet what do our evangelicals think?–They represent the true word of God unadulterated.  Perfect I say. Opportunism always knows what it is doing; it is making itself as God, it is taking Gods name in vain, and it is fine if you want to succeed all the way to the top. Opportunity knows this.

We are succeeding at reversing the problematic liberalism instigated by Jesus Christ and other spiritual teachers, by making the followers fear and insecurity dependent.  It is by limiting Love itself, that the whole of culture is divided, conquered and contained, made malleable to our interest above all else.  This is the perfect trap; people struggling to make themselves free and thinking they are serving God, while actually baiting their own trap to hold themselves!

Hallelujah!

To these repossession of Creation: We take from the Almighty in the Almighty’’s name, and give the victory to man.  Specifically, to those who take what they can get away with.

May I see you just below me —-on top of the pyramid!

Freedom and Democracy Are Problematic In Health Care “Debate”

IMG_4752

Lately, demonstrations fundamentally organized by industry seem to be using “the common folk” to advance their own agenda’s while sinking the opportunity of those very common folk.

The seemingly unconscious industry followers, often claim to be defending Freedom, Democracy, or other rights they believe are in jeopardy due to the instigations of industry lobby organizations such as “Freedomworks” or the GOP servant platforms such as Fox news.

Amazingly, in the reverse reality of right wing extremities; behavior’s of and accusation’s of protestors are often exactly what the protestors are protesting. Critical thinking and true self review are what conservatism is often most conserved against becoming known.  They require emotional and spiritual instability to design an appearance reality that they posses the answer; be it destroying what they do not like of government, or having only their ideas of God be held as valid.  Once these ideas are conserved, they are not allowed true critical analysis.  That introspection is made to seem disloyal or otherwise shaming. Wild accusations of mine?  How is it that a Christian such as Barack Obama is called a Muslim by supposedly true Christians?–appearance reality manipulated into subculture consensus reality.

Yep.  A kind of black magic is used to turn factual perceptions in consciousness into their opposition.  Truth exist, and then it is perceived as being false, by emotionalizing, then manipulating the perceptual dialectic.  Now folks can “honestly” claim Obama is a Muslim.  Hello!  Barack Obama!  One of them and not one of us!  Wake Up!

.

Concepts, such as socialism, fascism and communism are blurred to indistinctions—for a reason. Just as Glen Beck presented a misspelled oligarch allegation toward Obama on his Fox News show, while Mr. Beck is actually working for an oligarch’s business empire.  Fox news being the fair and balanced right wing extreme to full truth and context checking.  The right seems to often inoculate its followers against the very things they represent; instead, projecting the dissonance onto others in society.

For oligarchs to continue to dominate in an allegedly free and democratic society, they must entice people by hook or by crook to their side, when predatory self interest is not enough to capture functional pluralities.  Faith and belief, absent reality checking, are key ingredients to cooking up the perfect ad-hominem stew of emotionalized “knowns”. Death panels, paling around with terrorist, killing off the elderly, and many of these other kinds of fear and emotional instability tactics are leveraged by industry shills to prevent society from having a bottom line to insure health care.

Democracy and Freedom are Obstacles to Domination, as is truly Free Speech

Abstractions such as freedom, can be relative to the eye of the beholder. Free from, or to do what? This will present itself as a problem, for freedom does conjure consequence in a world complete with inter-relationships.  Democracy as well, has its problems.  Why, whenever the other side from yours wins, Democracy is disappointing.

One need know the value behind the concepts Freedom and Democracy; the rights of the individual, and the sum of individuals; the most free collective platform for all individuals direction in society. (Direct democracy may be the most immediate form of Democracy)  The problem exist between ones own interest, and that of everyone else.

Not understanding these dynamic concepts, is a problem, for ignorance renders the individual subject to misinformation, to misconception, and ultimately, misperception.  Unchecked fact, and unadmitted opinion, can claim to be both fair and most balanced.  But when we are fairly balancing between truth and ignorance, what is the likely outcome?  How about balancing fact and fiction?  Fair and balanced in what way and toward what presumption?

The corporate “free press” is exhibit A; the interest of business above the interest of individual people.  The trick to control Freedom and Democracy then, is to make business interest appear as the individuals reality, and establish consensus realty impressions tagged to it.

Ah…Both Democarcy and Freedom framed in and contained for the corporate good, now conceived continuously in commercial media as the public good.  This would be approaching corporatism, business oligarchy, or as the Fascist Benito Mussolini described Fascism;

“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”

Predator’s problem of Freedom and Democracy solved.

========================================================

Back in the political land of predation; where the freedom to mislead is held paramount.

To the land below, where Freedom and Democracy claim hold; above fly the watchful eyes and infectious scent of the carnivores.  Those who prey upon the commons of existence to their own benefit.

{From the invisible elephant}

So you have a health problem?  Good. Good.  I’m circling in to clean out what’s left of you.

Thanks, you Foxes and workers over of Freedom. Through you I can smell the kill.

I know.  They’ll never see whats coming.  The beauty of propaganda platforms free to spread their wings, while passing the consequence off to someone else.   Perfect.

Insert into next T bag march to tanninize the mind.

If those 9-12ers only knew who was actually using them behind the fear and insecurity driven abstractions of theirs.

Maybe Arizona Could Sell McCain and Kyl for Big Bucks?

-As an Arizonan, I’d be thrilled to sell off Senator Kyl and McCain, if they seem to be too proud to have Fed money in their state, being it seems against their philosophy and all.  I know they claim to be for ‘The American People’, or ‘The People of Arizona’ but with their convoluted conservative ideologies, that really means big property holders and others of major influence:  The usual suspects who love using the public commons for their own benefit.  I mean, The People’s.

Arguing from some moral high ground, from the right, has become an exercise in hypocrisy, do as I say and not as I hide behind your back. This seems to leave the greed is good for moral character (success) rationalizations about all they have these days.  Well, there is the dysfunctional dystopian America that Sarah Palin spoons about, where whatever feels good to say to the imagined crowd is the good policy of the moment.  Yet the Sarah Palin show remains popular with the negative programmed crowd, who only need know that liberalism is a bad thing producing all other bad things.  Democracy and a liberal press are such a pesky inconvenience.

When Governor Janet Napolitano went into the Obama administration, we in Arizona were left with a non elected Republican Governor instead.  Luckily, many governors live in the real world in real states, and want the stimulus/recovery investment. These seem not eager to play an ideological card game when their citizens jobs and lives are at stake.  Of course, there are certain governors, at least one Republican one, who wanted his pure ideologue points stamped on his secession card ID.  Proof of high principles at work and on camera.

We the public, are conditioned to most politicians shilling for their particular interest groups. They are all alike; is the common application of cynicism and apathy. So why vote?

That is the Democracy difference; We The People, are to be the ones with the actual say.  Politicians are to be our representatives.  Once elected these days, ideological card holding now turns a def ear to those who think differently. For those “loyal” to hired campaign selling points, the rest of us just don’t matter.  We citizens becomes the other guys collateral damage.

Our politics has become a pandering down system, a how to get elected job, where a candidate need only recite “the list” of talking points, rendering Democracy up for sale.  Well?  Are our elected officials only for me, or are they for us all?   We are deciding actually, whether we know it or not.  Do I really want my elected officials only to represent those who voted for them?  If so, It is I who am undermining Democracy.

As We The People are influenced by the need of our Representatives to claim to be only for me, the disintegration of Democracy seems inculcated into the equation; I do not expect a common good; I do not expect a common cause; I do not expect an indivisible union, except if you all think just like me.  Instead; I am looking only for what someone will do for me; a return on my vote.  Voting becomes an investment instead of a civic responsibility.

But what are a citizens true responsibilities?  To buy the politician for hire paradigm, or think a little about the greater We The People? The nature of Democracy, as of religion or other ideology, can be altered even while keeping the words the same.  Ultimately it is up to me to see through the distortions or be unwittingly distorted while claiming the high ground of abstraction.  Lobbyist can argue from the freedom card, or most any of our grand abstractions, in a 360 degree circle, until the public is so dizzy we do not see which freedom is greater or lesser.

We are getting what our intention, and our awareness, as well as our ignorance are asking for.  My ignorance is a tough one, for without me knowing it, what I do not know can become a politicians most precious commodity. Behind the public back door, out in a back alley, power brokers can auction off my ignorance for ideological theory sold as an abstract truth. That is the power of a citizenry kept in the dark, off our radars is the place to deceive and not get caught.

Democracy is caught in this leg trap of manipulation.  Information and knowledge can lead to understanding, while truncating them subjects understanding to reversion. A seemingly inevitable plight in the lack of journalistic integrity bound to competition corporate media. The citizen is left holding the bag of problematic consequence.  Ah. A whole new problem to exploit for the insiders in the political game of getting votes as permission slips for hire.  Who can I play against who next?  Roll out the wedge issues!

We each pay the price of our me first separation, taking Democracy down with us.  This may well be why the last president called the US Constitution nothing but a ‘Gd piece of paper.’  Its money that counts in the end in many of Democracy’s leaders minds.  And so, if Senator Kyl and McCain find their ideological bent the reason to deny stimulus money in my name.  Why.  I would like to sell off these two Senators and get some useful ones.

A penny. Anyone got a penny. Used senators for sale.  Where is that Blagovitch guy when you need him?

It’s not for me, its for Arizona.

Senators for sale.  Low bids welcome.

Palin: Master of The Art of Talking To Oneself in a Vacuum

Note to Sarah Palin;  Most of US are so over You.  That liberal media just doesn’t get it.

(Oops!  I just fell prey to my own criticism!)

I heard a friend playing Palins speech, and it just drove me backwards into my Homo Erectus roots; the myopic mindset necessary to see that blur of reasoning as being the way things actually are.  The dialectic of coherent objective reason has come a long way, but some refuse to evolve.  And sorry to say, I am one at times. I’m still waiting for shoes to be invented.

But for Palin, her circular logic tumbleweed seems to have become a staple on the arrogant but not ripe from waiting right wing.  Around and around; whine, blame, whine, blame, point, then platitudes and public pandering.  The persecution complex is on.   The answer?  Faith in my words.  No! Not yours! Mine! Well, that’s what you say.

I could almost hear the same words of Palin’s gone from governorship explanation speech recently, coming from Rush Limbaugh, the same convoluted and conjoined contraptions; where imagination and conjecture meet as truth revealed in ideological Nirvana; the twitching rationalizations, the tortured logic, the altered meaning of words to feign legitimate context, the allegations toward invisible others (for some a Pelosi usually works as iconic stand in for Satan) who seem to be all aligned against we good folks being used.  And likely sentences as long as this DNA chain.

I am astonished to hear these very ideas about rampant government (Now!) that could have been applied equally to the last administration which was rampant in expansion and abandoned responsibility.  Nothing like darts one is actually allowed to throw.  Now there is independence!

Note to citizens; A nation is a public endeavor, requiring defense, maintenance and care for the common good.  There is no automatic pilot!  It is our collective house; you do not ignore plumbing issues, fire issues, roof leaking issues, hungry children, and especially the issues of your very foundation—The People and the Social Contract Imperative.

And a BIG NO.  Capitalism is not God, not the answer to all things big and small, the economy is not intended to be The Divine Thing in a democracy, or it will surely perish.  The will of all is the context of a union.  Not just the will of the wealthy and well connected, or their propaganda publicist in the (Oh how strange)—Big business news shows and information platforms.

Sorry to Prosperity Christians cajoled by materialism, or by “conservative Christianity sects” into being, ah, anti Christian.  But God wants you to be well off, to be rolling in abundance!  Damn those environmentalist Luddite Naysayers, with their fake science and lack of faith in what we believe!  Your problems in income come from them!  Get them!  The poor and the sick are being punished by God!  Hands off!

.

One thing seems quite clear; if the every gripe fix by ideology promise train running full force on the right rail was contingent upon dominating something other than the professed mysterious alien menace of liberalism (now called socialism/fascism on the right’s emotional precipice), one would be shocked.  Conservatives talking of their own accountability’s and responsibilities to democracies Whole?; Reflecting on their own lack of omniscience and abundant guile?  Now that would be real news.

Don’t wait on its delivery through whomsoever’s media anytime soon. We can count on the right’s reactionaries for this; we’d be right back in the hole they started digging for us, only more waste would be pouring into it.  The suction vacuum is created by democracies facile citizenry.

Ah.  Nothen’ like a good speech to rev us up into someones column.  Hello Obama?  Paid any attention to the non wealthy and already well provided for lately, other than symbolic, ‘I’m on you side.  No Really!’ ?  A nation that worships from its top down is nothing more than a glorified American Idol Oligarchy, where the rich and well connected to authority herd us along like the faithful sheep we seem to be.

‘What happened to this country?’ Us.  We happened to this country.

I heard some Christian leaders are praying for Governor Sanford to ‘Stop Talking’.  How about a word for Governor Palin?  Let us all pray if we wish for our country; that we value more than good words.  I’d suggest praying that our politicians and propagandist did not persecute their personal demons out upon the citizens Commons.

I’m shutting up now.  I’ll leave with a photo I took from a room at home today, well, yesterday now, storms would not let me post.

…it seems for a while at least, that horses are free…Wait.  That is a nice idea out here on the open range, but horses mostly travel together and look out for one another.  Part of freedom?  Why not?  And who exactly is the one behind bars here?

God Invented Science: Hello?

If a God exist as presumed by many, God Invented Science.

That is, we humans and our ability to analyze our world for its facts and connections therein, enhancing our ability and capability to project change into our lives, including the environment around us, from our presumed knowledge; science. We must ask ourselves why much vocal conservatism is against God’s Science, or factual truth seeking?  What exactly are they protecting, and in effect, keeping knowledge away from whom?

.

There seems to be a war declared against scientific inquiry, a kind of inquisition upon the rules of cause and effect investigation that all Life seems to employ to survive.  Why would some need a war on critical thinking, and a substituting of it with selected logic presumed to exist in question free zones?  Areas of faith or assumption can easily harbor ignorance in enlightenment’s dock.

Is scientific truth, or supported theory, a threat to The Truth?  why would an absolute Truth be against truth verification strategies?  Seems much more likely that truth might seem a threat to ones established ideas of things; that require investigation closed down.  Then, ignorance is bliss, while fact in context appears ominous to a dimmed down mind.  Truth itself, feared.

{Maker of Existence. Thank You for this sky filled with water’s ability.  Water’s mobility lets us move, communicate in this soluble liquid water zone.  We drink what is at times cloud and rock, ancient and fresh.  Always we are in Your debt for each and every other thing.}

-Ideas On Conservative Brainwashing

Checking my e-mail, I found this article that seems to cover what I often talk about: How minds are conditioned and controlled, becoming sheep like in America, and likely in other places around the world and in history.  Yep.  And Oh yes I know; conservatives, the vocal ones, will claim all this about liberals.

While thinking they are standing up tall for individuality, truth, freedom, God, of some other absolute, we humans get herded into doing the bidding of interest quite unconcerned with how we ourselves are actually doing.  That statement may seem harsh, but in general it seems to be true.  Ideology, or belief system, appears to become paramount in persuasions propaganda campaigns, over the conditions creating the individuals actual stress, or a thorough investigation of social and environmental realities.  Albeit; stress is ultimately an issue in human consciousness as applied to the individuals perception, and not necessarily an environmental act.

How Indoctrination Works

The folks who then “think for themselves”, connect the dots they have been repeatedly told are connected; not actually by facts in context, but by ideological interpretation intended to bias their own critical thinking ability to become objectively disarmed.  Now then, ones own thinking successfully shoots oneself in the intellectual foot, then I can blame the damage on the programmed ideologically inculcated target.

I watched a World War Two program on our socialist (could say) news network, PBS, and what was stunning was hearing radio broadcast in Germany as the Jews were being demonized.  It reminded me a lot of right wing radio; lots of attitude and presumed bias “known’s”, then imaginary dots connected, but seeming real dots, for they are presented as truthful known’s; authority seems to be behind them. These days we call many of these tricks,  Thought-terminating clichés; when proclaiming the liberal media, or, Obamas media, as an example, the nature of truth itself is attacked.  We are being seduced into a circular logic truncation of objective viewpoint.

The investment into the crippling of critical thinking is staggering in its scope.  We humans are plagued with usually status quo interest interested in controlling how we view the world; which colored glasses and what parameters we presume of the individual and society–the collective.  We have been witnessing the selective destruction of these two interconnected influences; society and the individual, and a re-framing of the collective interrelationships to nonexistent or highly confined to status quo need.

We All Know The Liberal Media’s Bias

We are told by inference, that how things seem, in the defined liberal or Obama’s media, (yes I have heard the medias called Obama’s) are biased against fair thought, and so presumably undercutting truth itself.  This presumed deceptive  “given” becomes an inoculated bias against the real truth, by diverting thought from selected “liberalism” agenda’s.  Truth, or what is the biased view of truth as actually, becomes an ideological slanted list of supposedly established “known’s” (The Liberal Mainstream Media), which need no further evidence or validation other than endless repetition.

.

Yet the very nature of a media in a Democracy, would, and perhaps even should, be called liberal.  Referring to openness, pluralistic natures of the citizenry and non doctrinaire thought.  It is not granted that unless you just happen to be in the “right” group, a non liberal media would quite possibly appear as highly suppressive.  Science also comes under this abstractly disavowed, yet universally relied upon given.  I have heard from some condemning science, but by the very nature of our communications and inventions, even old agriculture, depend upon Gods science, or the ability to validate cause and effect in the environment, and plan a life.  Actually, even plan a next footstep.

In actuality, absolute truth is hard, and perhaps impossible to know from environmental facts and data, for we never really comprehend the full context of things, only abbreviated derivations of perception that are presumed to cover the issue being investigated.  I have never seen evidence that anyone knows exactly how all things are interrelated and interconnected, although in Life, or existence, they are.

Once the humility of being human is transcended for proclamations, reason begins its winding path down logical connection that may well be increasingly governed by my own ignorance, and not understanding or awareness of full contextual reality.  Yes this applies to me.  Just because I am offering a point of view here does not make it “The Truth”.  I also believe intuition and kinds of apriori awareness exist as of now beyond scientific scrutiny.  So?  Epistemology can contain both.  The idea that one must always be either or seems abstractly mechanistic, and not how life is.   Do you think love is just chemicals, or is there intrinsic meaning to the connection known by love?

Down the Illuminated Halls of Darkness

Just like way back in Germany in the 1930’s, repetition, repetition, and never stop repeating the slant, to inculcate the speakers bias as being non bias, or clearly evident, and the target issue as biased.  Be they Jews or Liberals, the Pavlovian/Orwellian conditioned herd of listeners, viewers or readers, are kept away from the open challenge of true critical thought, and put into the corrals of circular logic and ideological contortions of view. This blocking of objective inquiry, and substituting it with an ideological view biasing world data and events, reveals it is the listeners ears that are being targeted. Specifically what may lay between those ears.

The objective is to control you or me to someone else’s advantage, be it real or imaginary, and to bias objective fact finding for pre established perceptual control parameters.  Then we can be presumed to get reality wrong, but the doctrine right.  By repeating the doctrine’s presumptions, we are told we are right, and those not talking “right”, wrong.  The world of ones own knowing, then seems to conform to this newly imposed reality.  Staying within our circles of logic and association, we now have our “true world”, and can see how that outside world seems broken.

.

When Galileo proclaimed from observation (of Gods Universe lets say), that the earth was not the center of the solar system, he was viewed as proposing something seemingly evil or undermining to the Church.  Status quo’s (conservative) authorities seek to demonize objectivity for a primary reason; they only wish the definition of reality that they themselves are submitting to, to be seen as truthful, even if actually false.  It is the nature of following untruthfulness, but doing so in Truths Name, which oddly enough, seems to be taking the real Truths name in vane.  Or perhaps if we seek to follow a real God, Gods name in vane.

Conservatism can be relied upon to conserve this one thing for certain; dimmed down perception. Reality will be blockaded to the individual and culture,  the perceiving of full truthfulness that God or Life has enabled us to seek, will be demonized.  The war against science, is a war against objective reality, to substitute the truth of existence, with favored narratives of some subjective groups interest.

George Lakoff | Progressives Lack a Limbaugh-Like Voice

George Lakoff, The San Francisco Chronicle: “You turn the AM on and there’s Rush, or Savage, or another of the army of right-wing radio talk show hosts. You may not be listening hard, just working, driving, doing busywork or the laundry. Yet if you listen day after day, year after year, your brain will begin to change. Words, even those heard casually and listened to incidentally, activate frames – structures of ideas that are physically realized in the brain. The more the words are heard, the more the frames are activated in the brain, and stronger their synapses get – until the frames are there permanently. All this is normal. It is how words work. And the right-wing message machine has found a way to take advantage of it – activating, as it were, a conservative system of thought.”
