    That Gödel would find such a flaw in no way surprises me. Gödel had eyes few others could even imagine. As for flaws in the Constitution, it requires no Gödel to find them.

    The answer is that it isn't, in sé. Standard macro economic theories tend to ignore politics and assume some populations are not dangerous to others. This, of course, is an impossibly flawed assumption proven wholly false every single day that anyone has ever lived on this planet since at least the beginning of our recorded history. Because of bad actors who fail to play nicely with others, there are those circumstances where measures must be taken to neutralize actions that would otherwise result in harm to one's interests. Example: Nation A decides to produce fundamental widgets at a loss in order to drive competition from nations B, C, and D out of business, They make widgets of equal quality at 1/5 the price. The widget makers in B,C,and D would eventually go out of business because they simply could not compete with a taxpayer-funded loss-leader. The "government" of B institutes a tariff of 400% to bring the real cost of purchasing A's widgets within, say, 15-20% of what domestically produced units would cost. Some call this dirty pool, but in truth it is a defensive measure against what in this case is a clear act of economic warfare against your domestic widget industry.

    Little sympathy for the judge, given the hundreds and even thousands of examples of this happening all over the land. That said, it is a fine pass to which we have arrived where a man cannot express his opinion publicly without hazard of losing his job. Land of the free... yeah, right.

    I've only skimmed the memo, but judging by what I've read, I'd not have fired this man but given him a promotion where he could do some good. This memo has a feel as if I'd written it, so it must be good. ;) That they indeed fired him because of his memo only serves to reinforce with great strength what was written therein. Google strikes me as a dangerous entity - far greater a threat than Microsoft ever imposed, so far as I can see. Yet, M$ faced antitrust threats from "government" that included "divestiture" and a settlement stipulation that barred them from going into the hardware business... which appears to have perhaps expired? It is interesting to note how there seems to have been little to no talk of going after Google on similar bases as were the pretexts for doing so with M$. I am not saying anyone should go after them; it is the apparent hypocrisy that I find worthy of note. I would add that Google is a suspicious player in the first place. Never in the known history of the world has a company gone from zero to king of the hill in nearly so short an interval as has Google. Perhaps this is all well known, but I am not aware of whence Google came, where the money came for them to develop their technologies, and how it is that they managed to fly so high so quickly. It could be what it superficially appears to be, but I am doubtful that it is so.

    This presupposes Theye erred in a manner and to a degree I find nearly impossible to accept. That makes sense. What doesn't is that they would re-empower those whom Theye have worked so diligently to de-ball. This also implies a sort and degree of error that would require much demonstration before I could accept that Theye made it. I suppose it is possible - I just don't think it very likely. But if it is, that is actually very good news in that it demonstrates that Theye are not quite as smart as they, or we, think.

    If what we are seeing is not complete theater, then they want a whole lot more than mere equal standing. They want dominion. Big difference. I do not think that it has, but I agree that they want more. It's what humans do. This makes no strategic sense. Had the globalists held the Muslims in any concern, they would have ensured they never emerged from the deserts. As it stands they let the sand fleas out because they perceive no threat. I would also not be surprised to find that the rise of fundamentalist Islam has as much to do with globalist muck-raking as it does with the Wahhabis. Bear "useful idiots" in your thoughts. That is what ISIS, etc., are.

    This might make a good book, but I do not see it as being real anywhere else. What you describe would undo at least three generations of progressive pussification of the European. There are a few large holes in this that you would need to credibly fill before this theory becomes plausible. What you describe flies in the face of good sense, unless Islam poses a real threat to Theire positions. I doubt it. There appears Theye may even be behind the rise of these head-sawing Muslim lunatics. I don't know - world is so odd, I honestly don't know what to think anymore. I say lets get the war going and settle all these outstanding issues once and for all.

    Not likely, at least at first blush. As someone pointed out in the thread to which you referred, there are far easier and less hazardous ways of precipitating a superficially valid pretext for going to war with "Islam". Letting multiple millions of potentially dangerous foreign agents is a lot of work and poses tremendous hazards to one's political station, not to mention the very future of one's land. I will point out that the assumption that those in true power in, say, Germany are pro-German is deeply flimsy on its best day. If we accept the existence of so-called "globalists" and that they occupy positions of deep and abiding power, then the assumption that Germany is being governed by Germans with nationalist inclinations becomes plainly absurd. The globalists openly admit their goal of eliminating all nations, the first step toward which is the elimination of nationalism in all its forms. If we go only slightly out on a limb and accept that these globalists occupy key seats of governmental power and influence across the face of the planet, then we can rest fairly well assured that there are not entrenched nationalists in key positions such that they are readily able to mount effective actions against "Islam". They cannot do it openly if they are not occupying key positions of power, if for no other reason than that an army must be fed. Within three to four days of having run out of provisions, soldiers begin to face very real hazards. No food = no fight in pretty short order. This fact alone pretty well assassinates the idea of a cabal seeking to secure a pretext with which to go to war against Muslims so much as nationally, much less globally. Besides, the pretext already stands. 9/11 has plenty of life left in it. Any nation could credibly wage war on any Muslim nation or population based on the events of 9/11/2001. Let us remember that this is "government" of which we speak - they require no valid basis for action anymore. They simply decide and then act and the people can go suck it. That is the world in which we now reside as virtual prisoners.

    Instead of rephrasing my post in the other thread, I'll just repost it: The alt-right continues to be the most idiotic, poorly run, self-sabotaging bunch of morons I've ever seen. Words cannot express how much my opinion of this "movement" has soured since the beginning of the year. My opinions on race and immigration are unchanged and I continue to move rightward, but the alt-right is a fucking dumpster fire that no thinking person should take seriously. Says it all, really. They're not American nationalists. Plenty of them want to give Mexico back California and Texas and let the progs have New York. On of the most common ideas I've seen is that the WNs get to keep the Northwest.

    Always will be? How do you know this? But I think it does, because you are (at least implicitly) redefining "freedom". Perhaps it means something different to you than it does to me. There is no comparison between the two senses of "freedom". Fundamental is the difference between physical constraint and that which is possible as a matter of human prerogative.

    To be fair, Princeton did offer similar political action courses against Obama, called Obamalandia listing many of the issues she had with Obama, such as his targeting and locking up whistle-blowers; obliterating entire cites and nations; causing the deaths, displacement and destitution of millions; issuing totalitarian health insurance buying mandates, etc ... Princeton did, didn't it? :D

    This is what passes for academic discourse in an Ivy League? "xenophobic nationalism and pragmatic cosmopolitanism" is the ridiculously loaded narrow minded description that is the level of intellectual thought and analysis that an Ivy League professor can attain. Obama's entire murder legacy is summed up as the whitewashing "pragmatic cosmopolitanism". If professor likes loaded descriptions, Leona Marie Sharpstene could of at least tried ones that are more accurate, like "pragmatic murder inc.", "pragmatic total surveillance police state", "cosmopolitan war on whistle-blowers", "torture whitewash cosmopolitanism", "Domination through War", "Big Lies and Bigger Lies", "Economic Destruction", "nation-phobic global totalitarianism", "Drones R Us", "destroying lives and nations the cosmopolitan way", "training arming and funding terrorist the cosmopolitan way" , "pragmatically invading and destroying nations" , "pragmatic economic illiteracy", "mandates for the masses - pragmatic totalitarianism" -- You get the picture. Just as loaded and simplistic but at least far more honest and balanced.

    They closed the thread before I was able to respond to you, so I just wanted to say, I agree with all of your concerns about Rand Paul. I still think he's better than the other options, but he isn't my ideal. I'm most likely going to vote for him, but I don't blame people who won't. And if I was still going to live in NYS in 2016 (I'm moving to Virginia for college, which as we know is a swingy state) I would be less likely to vote for him. Even still, if the LP candidate is too good to pass up (Someone more like Harry Browne than Gary Johnson... the latter of which was more of a lesser of five evils) I would consider voting for them.
