Pretense and the Fate of Democracy: Truth and Power Manipulation In The Mind

Faking  Knowledge and the Fate of Democracy

: Mental Truth and Power Manipulation

Most moments of our lives are not spent in “second guessing” ; What do I “really” know?

(When seeing the sky and guessing at the weather, is this the same as knowing some of the atmospheres meteorological elements of manifestation and how they relate in the real atmosphere dynamics being seen?)
Is it going to rain or become less cloudy by the cues in this image? Can this image answer that question?  What happens to my personal sense of self honesty when I declare a truth under this and other kinds of environmental assessment?

The Knowledge and Awareness Puzzle

Here (where I am ) in the desert southwest USA, these hints of upper air cloud formations will not indicate imminent or any precipitation. A meteorologist may be able to discern the locations of pressure systems, offer speculations of ‘gravity waves’,  jet-stream movement, or suggest things such as orographic influence from what I might only see as curious cloud formations.

How much seeing is believing?, or more importantly, knowing? It is a truth that one can have an intuitive sense near the equal of scientific perception, as in the weather prediction ability many a farmer or other sky-watchers accuracy of atmospheric interpretation might attest.  It is likewise a truth that many of us, on any particular subject, are relatively more ignorant than others.  We may not wish to profess our lack of knowledge in the balance of a relationship with another too often, or at all.  We may register the language of ideas to appear well informed, but not “know” the context and depth of the contextual paradigm of ideas meanings.

Oh! I don’t know!

This level of self ignorance on what is real, is a question of cognition we almost never ask ourselves for one simple reason–it would be unsettling to ponder too often. Our self identity needs a kind of confidence, usually, to function in a clear and productive direction.  I can have emotion and belief telling me something is obvious and true, that I master a things context and interrelationship, but be mistaken, even completely wrong. Regardless, I forge ahead confidently in my assumptive interpretations, usually so I can move onward to the next thing.  So I, we, live by many a presupposition, these often seeming as fundamental truths, perhaps “The Truth“, as emotion, our family, or friends and society, books and the Internet might insist is the case.

We then have a kind of inner guidance and misguiding/error system usually unquestioned as to its full integrity in perception.  Many a belief system claims a prior (a-priori) endowment of truth, a “real” reality that cannot or should-not be tested/questioned. These “real truths” when embodied by human conceptual structures, institutions, institute kinds of non critical thinking mandates, where questions of validity are eschewed. Culture, society and ones closest community can contain unquestionable zones, whole areas of both presupposition and of the intent to not question the idea of the belief in  ‘How things really are.’

The Rippling Outwards Of Error

We each are susceptible to misguidance, if not outright deception. When our thinking abilities are d-validated, for many degrees of ignorance and illusion can now glide right under the cognitive radar, in effect instilling a falsity into our “truth”. Here is where checking for facts becomes of paramount importance to an honest self, but under certain situations and circumstance, not where I am going.  We humans create kinds of institutions, some of belief and some of physical persuasion, designed, for whatever reason, to keep us in line with the concepts manifesting the institution. We may be “corralled” by ideas that make us dependent upon the status quo, or, even by those that make us rebellious to an institutions perceived context as a position of a subcultural merit… We are not to question these ideas, the declaration will go, or else face the bad consequences of ostracism or otherwise be dismissed of truthful relevance by some form of shaming. Diversionary clichés will be offered to clear the way through the jungles of ambiguity, these, intended to load a judgment of being unwell, of “otherness” and exclusion to be tagged onto the holdings of some concepts.  The reasoning, the rationalization, is not to be doubted for its is presumed as a reality beyond my awareness. Questions and doubts can become assessed as ones weakness, a failure, or even misguided deception indicating a sort of individual weakness and inferiority.

We point at these institutions in effect declaring; ‘They make this so. They make this truth itself.’, inferring true reality, while what these things are actually are conceptual constructs, kinds of formulations forwarded by other humans agreeing that these truths are in fact real an evident to common perception.  This is only and always accomplished within the consciousness of one human being by one human being.

In childhood many concepts are automatically imprinted, such as with language containing its delivered concept definition. These definitions may, and often are, delivered by family and community interpretations.  We “read” our family and communities “mind”, including peer communities emotional tags that hang on idea and conceptual interpretations, usually accepting most of these without question.  Blame and shaming techniques are employed to keep us in-line or else face some sorts of troubled consequence.

“It Is What It Is” Or How Lies Can Be Called Truth

This is the domain of a priori frames; places intended not to be questioned for the health of the institution and possibly the health of society.  However, the institution, with its claims upon actual real truth, will not include the; possibly of intrinsic error, instead it will say it is; The Way it is., period.  No questions to be asked.  This puts we human individuals at kinds of disadvantage, for not being able to challenge an institution is mathematically problematic, in that errors can accrue and we must remain oblivious, in denial, and, or likely more hostile as a believer, toward the source of these alleged errors, this challenging dissonant appearance. We can be, and by probability are, wed to error and mistake and not allowed to divorce them in places unknown to us.  The voices of loyalty or other means of emotional shaming control will be used to keep us in a conforming confort zone of sorts if we quietly, or energetically, follow along.

In some respect Society or some branch of it, will create the hangmen to hoist up the individual, perhaps as a kind of example, to warn others of the risk of questioning its authority.  This then manifest aspects of the nature of what is a character trait of conservatism, a feature everyone must deal with in their own lives or remain ignorant of the consequences, for we are all in ways conservative and liberal. We have mental/emotional mechanisms of self survival that move across a continuum of love and empathy to obloquy and misanthropy.

For me, as an individual consciousness, someone pointing out a fault of mine, even if I am certain the claimed fault is a sure mistake, is taken seriously by me, at least to a point.  It is no different for our institutions, some of which we do not even regard or know as being an institution–a self perpetuation human endeavor. Politics dramatizes these “institutionalized misconceptions”, for it is opinion, one-ego-mindedness, in action.  Ultimately, the conflict in politics involves opinion; things that are objectively unchallenged by its holders, all while their emotions are “seeking” to convince or force others to share their belief; to defend our reality constructs “turf”, for this is the land on which our life and livelihoods seem to be framed into existence. While the real objective Reality is functioning internally and externally to some degree, our human consciousness, with its pattern detection techniques at times filled in by emotional “data”, is not an infallible depiction.  This is one reason we will look at something; lets say some a priori authorization narrative, and claim this story is the true one, the right one, the one not to be questioned, or else. A fear and insecurity narrative is at the heart of any disagreement, if this does not lead to attempts at comprehending another’s position honestly–as we would intend for ourselves from another. (“The Golden Rule”, Categorical Imperative)

Just Like A Liberal / Conservative etc…Out On The Limb

When we invoke our ad-hominem debunking techniques towards others, these are often imbued with insinuation and down-casting phraseology, or buzz worded Thought-Terminating-Cliché designed to stop an objective-minded thought process in its tracks.  In some circles; (circular logic circles), these negative tag-frames are literally one side of the emotive linkages that tend to bond adherents to the concepts towards one another. From this sharing of cognitive bias, we can go on to pretend we are actually having an unbiased overview of an issue, but actually we are buttressing our assumptions by the impressions of fellow-hood “a movement”, a “reality of common mind” where we associate the words or the numbers of others to the mass of our belief’s presence as an action factor in life.

Matrixing Emotions And Incidents Into The Bad Other Narrative

While we may wish others understood or even knew ‘our story’, it is often the last thing we intend to comprehend of another, perhaps outside of our emotionalized rationalizations of harmful narrative. We juggle ideas of the others opprobrium until a cohesive concept of their intent is rendered. Gossip is quite like this phenomenon, but in todays world-wide media, there are continuous sources of perpetuation of disrespect for others, complete with the disreputable narrative that denotes “their” unsavory character and their corrosive intent toward me, and or, culture in general.  I am not saying that there is not truth to the things we humans do and to how helpful or harmful in respects our actions are.  I am saying that negativity as a mindset is a relative value to certain interest, be it to the self medications of a disenchanted ego, or to interest groups who use the negative as an advantage over others for social and other environmental control that seems to benefit themselves FIRST and FOREMOST. It is this kind of poisoning of the language of Democracy’s drinking waters, of culture, that is a major source of the negative in individual experience that blocks full, or fuller cognition of fact from fiction.

Democracy does hang on the rope of imposed constraints on cognition.

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!

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.

Right Wing Myths Exposed: The Red-Blue Myth, The Liberal Media

Yet the almost complete right wing Republican domination of political talk radio Meet the Myth-Makers: RightWing Media Groups Provide Ammo for “Liberal


Sunday 26 April 2009

George Lakoff | Progressives Lack a Limbaugh-Like Voice
http://www.truthout.org/042609Y
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.”

Liberalism vs Propaganda’s Definition

What is that sinister liberalism and its value eroding ethos all about?-

“The essence of the Liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being held dogmatically, they are held tentatively, and with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.” -Bertrand Russell

-This means liberalism is inherently powered by critical thinking with an outlook on The Whole of systems, and not some ideologically bound self identified notion.

This observation of Bertrand Russell is what modern conservatism and conservatives cannot seemingly comprehend; viewing liberalism instead, as a weakness of “values”, rather than evidence of the strength of the critically thinking endowed mind; that Life has identifiable reason in Its evidence.

Conservatism; a one way street of perceptual comprehension, signed by ideological abstractions, opens a Pandora’s box of uncheckable hypothesis, and alleged a-prior truths that most all conservatives depend on, as if they knew what they cannot. This is also why they are attracted to crowd behavior, as well as list of buss worded thought-terminating clichés, as if like mindedness and conformity equals reality and evidence of truth. But once science, or our God given ability to analyze our environment and draw relative logical conclusion, is unplugged, well, the world of conversion or manipulation is one’s oyster.

With the implosion of popular conservatism going on after the 2008 election and economic collapse, we see conservatives stuck in front of their own broken mirror, as always, looking for who other than they themselves can be blamed.

Conservative talk radio and TV exemplifies the regurgitation of dogmatic “truths” being robotically/habitually spouted over and over amidst a radically altering environment. Being trapped in their backward facing broken images, they are reinventing the fallen pieces into Frankensteinian fear reflectors. This conglomerated creation seemingly projects outward their own misgivings and seeming inability in establishing a real connected life that recognizes all human beings as real and relevant people.

An incestuous political correctness of the right right, seems their holy grail pursued as their standard hallmark of abstract purity. For instance, in their imaginary, or disingenuous, world view of holding Obama to McCain’s professed “earmark” standard, the Omnibus bill just signed to keep the government open, had earmarks of 28 senators of the 35 who voted against it. Today they were proclaiming purity all over the liberal media waves, decrying Obama’s hypocrisy and lack of integrity.

It has become common place in congress to hear earmarks being bemoaned by some on the meandering right (McCain’s favorite topic it seems), that actually sound like very important local issues, but not to them. Some earmarks are quite defensible, being clearly health and scientific information obtaining programs, and not as assumed, the source of all wasteful big government ills. Yep. 28 of 35 no’s had earmarks on the bill they voted against. Principle? And all this whole earmarks steam blowup, means Obama is protecting Washington as usual, but actually comes to less than 2% of the entire bill.

Smoke and broken mirrors with hints of purifying or putrefying abstractions wafting through conservatism’s always holy intentioned air. It is what shell games ideological distractions thrive on. What smoke and mirrors allows manipulators of the “common folk” to thrive on. I cannot fathom those who believe what they are hearing on the right, yet I must remind myself some think the contrived conservative blather is truth revealed. The liberal MSM is out to get you. Trust us and only us… Critical thinking impairment extraordinaire.

“Success” is another one of these modern conservatism’s claims of ownership, which makes it a natural steerable concept for most anyone wanting to reduce their tax. Tax is being morphed into a liberal duty imposed on subjective success, instead of a duty to accountability and responsibilities to more than oneself. The brain twisting definition of my self in isolation “success”, must be kept abstract and holy. If your (or my) success exploits the environment to ruin, or uses the desperate as fuel to dump when desired, why it is all your pure accomplishment and hard working good deed. Wasn’t accomplishment to be rewarded? Government and the lazy are out to take your stuff! Can’t you see!

Detachment, abstraction, obfuscation, diversion of consciousness, crippling of critical thinking ability; all these are must be’s for conservatism to thrive. It is about lazy faith and angry sure opposition. The exact kind that had Reagan and Bush vastly grow the government while claiming to protect you from it,…and how they open up the nations Commons to plunder.

Conservatism is separation/alienation and fall guy dependent; scapegoat enabled, with projection imperative for any negative self accountability. Freedom, liberty, in concert with responsibility/accountability, these are its secret Nemesis. Conservatism will eventually defeat democracy if minds are allowed to ferment into inebriated stupor over illusions of ideological simplicity and absoluteness.  Yet insecurity can convince one of most anything, without objective attempts at truth evaluation, conservative paranoia’s could one day, if allowed the power they seek to keep, bring down democratic civilization.

Yes, conservatism hates our accountable/responsible freedoms. It proposes detached abstract impressions of freedom that can enable society to atrophy to a warlord state, more likely a corporate warlord/servant state. And all while folks are sure it is the path to averting such a fate by opposing liberalism… Follow that turnip truck of ideological certainty closely.

If your God or your philosophy finds rational peer objectivity a threat, likely what you worship is not real, being it, through you, is afraid of questions as to the fact of its existence.

The Socialism Scare Crow: THE FIGHT OF RAVENOUS MINDS


THE FIGHT OF RAVENOUS MINDS

photo-74

I came across a blog post yesterday. It said the threat for totalitarianism is from the left and not the right; BECAUSE the Nazis were socialist! Obviously only liberals can become “socialist”, and so, our authoritarian threat. Point made. Job done. Brilliant?

Now I think history shows that the far left and the far right are equally adept at totalitarianism. The thing about the post was it treated socialism as just one thing;– The old socialist movements of the left. Nationalistic socialism, or entities like the White Peoples Socialist Party (or the Nazi’s!), things not of the left, are instead assumed to be of the left. The corporatism endemic to fascism, or socialism for corporations (corporate/government collusion), something we seemed to be hedging to in the last 8 years, is not THE SOCIALISM the right wing is always shouting about. I think they are deaf to their kinds by all the chanting they do over this, only liberals make bad, presumption.

The same word in something does not make it exactly the same thing in quality, quantity or necessarily effect, nor many other characteristics, only some aspect. All trees are not exactly alike to our human uses. An apple tree gives me an apple to eat, while a redwood tree holds up many an old California house. The tree part is consistent in its aspect, but what each kind does in use is entirely different depending on human intentions. In that, they are not at all exactly the same thing. I know; Duh.

The extreme naiveté with some on the right continues to amaze me. It does allow for an abstracted purity of mistaken belief. Often, just a word or phrase makes things alike, talking points go out to sponge-abled minds. Before we know it, whole ripe fields are waving in the breeze. Newly found truths of enlightenment are being dispensed for the sleeping masses to wake up to. And all from the blurring of an abstract essence of a thing not truly or truthfully matched up with reality… And something stuffed with straw guides possible idea consumers away. Most of use are benefiting from some kind of relative socialism or other.

Oh. I can see why things like science and being really accurate in ones descriptions is so distasteful on the Fixed News and views circuit, which seems the source or instigation of many of these revealed truths. If a scarecrow is thought to scare away desire with its real looking menace, desire may be kept from knowing the truth. That may well be the intention.

The standard corporate model of responsibility and accountability to society is a perfect match for the definition of a psychopath for a reason;– avoiding accountability to The Commons of Life. In other words; Individuals are setting up full intention to preserve getting away with something at others expense. (A documentary segment on Youtube at post bottom) Corporations, lets say on pollution injury, or global warming as examples, have indeed acted as a psychotic would; Believing fully that they are entitled and have a right to do what they do without consequence, then be free to be left alone. So keep government regulation out of my business. Cognitive dissonance assuaging rationalizations (and political) often in the name of abstractions such as freedom and success, help empower this psychosis into patriotic and religious fervor for some.

Now days it seems any government venture of most any kind, except over certain kinds of crime and war, is called looming socialism. Some seem in a near panic over the issue. Government doing anything only government can do; Like stimulate an economy with spending in an emergency; Like taking care of those who fall through the economic and societal cracks (everyday emergencies); Like fix failing infrastructure on a massive scale; Like not letting those who cannot afford it to just stay sick and die, or be driven into poverty.

All this is the slippery slope to the socialism monster. (Odd how if the nation acts in any way like Jesus Christ would, it is considered as some kind of evil. How did what some see as a predominately Christian nation become anti Christ behavior as a whole?) However, in the psychology of the socialist movements on the right; groups ranting over government “give away’s” can end up wanting to give away the government–to themselves.

Just one of the ways those set up as Conservative wannabe’s get fooled by language and reality.

How about this since it seems true:

To Each According to Their Investments

To Those Who Cannot Invest; Serve The Above

Otherwise Get Out of Our Way

WHY DO CONSERVATIVES FAVOR FEAR OVER UNDERSTANDING?

WHY DO CONSERVATIVES FAVOR FEAR OVER ANSWERS?

Glad you asked.

Conservatives cover, or conserve a subjective ideology, meaning not one the whole world necessarily believes is indisputable primary fact to conform to. It isn’t that liberals do not have their own belief theories and mistakes to learn from, but conservatism is noted for its lack of admittance of mistakes. One clue towards a contradiction diverting absolutist state of mind. With such a state of mind, many things are threatening.

We see conservatism promote perception adherence to fear and unknowns, from its inherently insecure introversion.  Conservatism is as introversion can be.  Individuals concern themselves with defending their place, and not in an outwards acceptance of others in their own place. So it favors might makes right, and a non generous attitude toward the full understanding of others positions.  Instead, those are usually “safely” cast into suspicion that works to turn the isolation switch on.

Liberalism can have its own kind of misgivings. If we use the analogy of introversion for conservatism, extroversion fits well in ways for liberalism. Liberals can be all over the place once a theory seems true. It is uncanny how in some conservative circles, a few ‘those kinds of people’ will receive much head nodding and agreement, while the same phenomenon happens in many liberals circles. Data that contradicts some liberals theories gets “indicted” quite like in conservative minds. In fact, liberals can, in effect, act very conservative, and conservatives behave quite liberally. Just don’t tell them I said so. Might confuse the ideological purity.

THE ALREADY PROVED ENOUGH

Conservatives claim a kind of a-priori knowledge independent of empirical lessons. The flat earth theory and the earth centric universe theory, were held to their ends by conservatives, not because an ideology said the earth could only be flat, but that the deeper empirical theories did not seem true to the uninformed eye. Much conservatism is really against change itself. It cannot be completely independent of empiricism, since any life learns as it goes, irregardless of ideology teachings. Once again, conservatives feared new evidence that countered an old world view thought to be true. They can feel quite sure bout defending truth as an honor, even when one could say they know they are wrong about it. When someone is sure a thing is true, it becomes nearly impossible to “prove” otherwise.

We all have what can be called conservative and liberal tendencies.  Sometimes people say they are economic conservatives yet social liberals, but really for the same reasons; they believe the differing positions in different area are more correct from their point of view. We tend toward conservatism when we wish to conserve our advantage, however that “seems”, over ideas that seem to not integrate with our own. Does not make our protected ideas true, as many conservatives insist they are, just like the flat earth and sun going around the world; They seem to make sense to individuals, just as those two false yet seeming true notions did.

Conservatism acts against a change in paradigm, and often implied by reaction, to resist new truths moving perception towards a higher paradigm shifting level. One not recognized by the conserved minds lens as such. They are fundamentally afraid of increasing knowledge, seeking to deny it its value.  (Example for one issue for some; global warming data.) Knowledge can rightly appear to be the drilling of holes into ones own life preserver. And for that it gets roundly indited as dangerous or unfounded.

How are liberals conservative?

Many liberals can be for environmental protection of the earth systems Commons, as one example, yet go about their lives enjoying many benefits of the current culture. However, build a power plant, or expand a road nearby due to stress of that very lifestyle, and they can get all up in arms. They were fine with not knowing of certain things regarding lifestyle, that in effect, vote by action against changing the paradigm to a higher order. Some elements of liberalism are not fully absorbed by some who are liberal, or applied opportunistically to recognize change needed somewhere, yet ignored somewhere else. I am generously generalizing here. In case you could not tell!

We have become polarized by liberal and conservative identities to keep a consensus from occurring for whatever reason. Likely someones benefit at having a democracy divided and controllable.  This division seems to have wrapped the government into a noose, that tends to support every growing corporate influence over democracy as regulator of the Common interest.

Back to being a liberal or a conservative. I doubt that any of us are purely conservative or liberal, since living would become nearly impossible to manage. And yes, liberal theories conserved can be conservative, again, becoming against the evidence of higher order truths that counter the assumed true belief.– Against changing their minds.

Still. Even a liberals form of conservatism is entrenched in fear of altering a paradigm, or world view, to conserve an absolutist theory. Even if that theory will prove to have been temporary, the momentary conservatism is quite like the conservatism of conservatives.–Faith and trust in what seems true. Go talk to a wall otherwise.

Unfortunately, we could say, for liberalism, is that it requires a lot more on the foot thinking and dissemination of new knowings than I suppose many wish to be processing. It’s very nature is in a kind of fluid change that changes with changing environments and human comprehension. With busy lives, many of us might even look for “excuses” to be kept in the dark on some issues. Might be child labor somewhere, might be we would be all the poorer if it were not for all those low paid workers in China and elsewhere. For then what would be the moral and ethical considerations?  I intend to burn some oil on my next trip to…

Overall, not the same problem with conservatism. It can hold on to its “truth” and declare everyone else followers of falsity. It requires an arsenal of fear and looming uncertainty to keep its herds in unquestioning order. The other world traditions are seen with doubt, and not in the pursuit of a fair knowledge of what they really are. It tends to be quite easy to produce doubt and fear involving maintaining protected ideas, than shift gears with a changing world that conservatism might assume is all the worse for its constant change. Insecurity becomes a bread and butter commodity to be sold. While conservatism can most always fall back on its glorious notions of purity of abstraction that it is “defending”, by resiting change.

Conservatism tends to have ad-hominem thought-terminating clichés to keep its followers from thinking about new information. Galileo was persecuted, for instance. If called a heretic, one is in serious trouble. And it is said that Jesus Christ was given the death penalty. In most families with a conservative dominating personality, all kinds of derogatory blame frames are thrown around to impute the character of those who think differently. Editorial pages can offer us an array of blaming and shaming of an assumed negative “otherness” in implied “bad” people. Once again. Might be well intentioned, but what it tends to be doing is avoiding honestly processing the new realities Life is offering, while generating an atmosphere of shame, along with a potentially false sense of self righteousness needing little life evidence as truthful comparison.

WHOSE FUTURE?

We have generic conservatism and liberalism for survival reasons. It would be wise if we encouraged ourselves to see where we are one and where the other. To survive, we would do well to listen to differing viewpoints and perspective, not stand in fear of learning, but in fear perhaps, of losing everything.

The answer it seems, is in having eyes wide open, yet knowing when it is wise to close them from harm. However, if we just look backwards, we might well doom the future to a one way non refundable blind alley.

HERE! PROOF OF LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS ;–EXTRA! EXTRA!

PROOF OF LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS

EXTRA! EXTRA!

————————————————–

Here would be the proof of liberal media bias;

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

Extra!

Company owning this newspaper suspected in fraud.

Extra!

—–There was a show on one network a few years back, which chased after the corporations doing sneaky or shoddy things. Then that very networks ownership company was exposed at influencing laws to benefit itself. So what happened? The truth seeking show vanished.

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

Extra!

Capitalism’s redistribution of the wealth from the many to the few is spreading the wealth around in mostly one direction; Up to the few!

Extra! Read all about it!

—–Once again; if we had a “liberal media” we would hear societal context applied to talking head philosophical bias. This sort of analysis has been decried as liberal bias. Seems one should only critique ones who cast societal issues into context, for that is you know what—MSM liberal media bias! Let them eat abstraction!

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

Extra!

Conservatives say government is only for what they need the Commons to do when their opportunism seems threatened! Security distributed to the rich! Not the poor and middle class!

Extra!

—–It is no accident that the party of the so called “Chicken hawks” is the nest of the us vs them ideologues. The Commons (The world of inter and inner relationship) is to be exploited and left in ruin, unless someone powerful gets insecure, then it is ‘We are all in this together!’ ‘One nation!’

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

Extra!

The one millionth study concluding environment does effect human development. Extra! Read all about new finding that could change someones mind!

Extra!

—–It is to be expected, that those who must defer away from reality to belief and perceptual bias, would poison the perception of the messenger of fact in context. Hence all the emotional ad-hominem denunciations of intelligence seemingly continually put out from the pulpit and in the media to be fair and balanced.

What do we lose of reality, when balance and fairness equates fact in parity with fiction? Just what we have; problems that seem not to go away. And truth unable to be agreed upon in public discourse. Some intend a national consensus to never happen for anything other than war.

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

Extra! Extra!

Conservatives out to impair perception of now, creating consensus dissonance to perpetuate into the future. Extra! Read all about now being perverted to permanent perceptual bias and problematic schemes that create dependency addictions on hierarchical mindsets.

Extra!

—-That old axiom that ; “If it bleeds it leads”, is nearly a permanent fixture on the MSM for a reason; Real fundamental changes needed to address serious societal issues are generally off the radar—Yes! For a reason! Some benefit just as things are. Thank you very much. It is so much lazier and so much easier to keep complex issues off of our little citizens minds. Give them soap opera concerns instead.

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

Extra!

Extra!

Red all about myth of subversive liberal media!

Extra!

—–and so we will not hear of these few things I just came up with about systemic bias perpetuated away from liberalism because…
