    On this we agree. I chose my wording not quite well enough. You have clarified my position on the matter, and even then they don't quite get off, but that's really not what matters in this case. What matters is what they believe. They may be doing as you claim, v. the law of Moses, but if they believe it is a karmic thing, then that is the basis upon which they operate in their minds. I will point out, however, that this position of theirs reveals a grossly incompetent grasp of the concept of karma. Nonetheless, I tend to disagree with the karmic notion as it is a vicious cycle that basically describes what I can only characterize as a vision of hell where there is no real chance for redemption in practical terms. The grace of forgiveness available to the truly repentant is a divine notion that bespeaks the love of God, or whatever one wishes to call it. There is a way out of eternal damnation, whether it takes the form of the Ninth Circle, or endless lives being reborn to ever greater suffering as the sins of weak humanity pile up with compounding interest. Just as with the national debt, beyond a point there is no possible way to pay it back and you're screwed for good. Whatever the reality may be there, my gut tells me that disingenuous plays such as those ascribed in the OP to the satanists will buy them nothing good. I'm also wondering whether playing any part in events that result in some severe injury to others can be immune from accountability. For example, you tell me you want to play Russian roulette with me and if I acede, the fact that we both agreed as adults to so engage may not spare me culpability with God after you splatter your brains all over the wall. "Hey, we both consented to it, so what's the problem?", to which God responds with "I'm about to show you." I'm not sure that mutual consent is a universal get-out-of-jail-free card for matters of that general class.

    That may all be true, and I hope that it proves so, but the Satanists are still correct that when they admit to the face of an intended victim that what they offer will harm them and the buyer still buys, he shares blame. These pricks no longer hide their evil. The rub it in our faces and most of us still buy. That is wholly on us. We buy because we are corrupt. We have fallen for the commercials targeted, for example, to housewives portraying their lives as tedious and boring. And what did all those stupid women do? They bought the foul, smiling and legs wide. The men were no better. We've had shiny things dangled before us by something that is clearly evil to anyone who will slow down long enough to calm their minds and see. We have all of us taken the bait in one form or another. Nobody's hands are clean. We walked into corruption's arms eagerly. Oh yeah... gotta have that BMW... and it's got to be teal or I am going to pitch a fit, kick the dog, slap my child, and curse my wife for having the temerity to care enough to remind me that this is not important. Nothing wrong with having that teal BMW, other than the fact that BMWs are shyte automobiles. But when having it drives one to forsake that which is important and sacred in his life, such as the love of his children, something has gone way wrong. And that is exactly what we have all done. My proof lies in the very reality in which we marinate. "Government" is screwing each of us up our ass and we do nothing effective about it. We complain. We blame... everyone but ourselves. We moan and cry. We deserve everything we get because we tolerate the intolerable, all while in hot pursuit that car, or whatever it is that is of such ternary significance, but yet we regard and pursue it as if our very souls depended upon it. We are literally insane, and here I speak in a clinical sense. Madder than hatters that we are not engaging in mass civil disobedience, but ever so eager to chase that next piece of ass, or head into downtown Portland and burn down a city block. The reckoning that is coming could be avoided even at this late stage, but it won't be precisely because we are so sick with moral rot, taken as a whole. If half a million New Yorkers strapped on a sidearm this afternoon and went about their normal business, carrying openly, could the city "government" do anything effective about it? Not likely. What would the cops do, start shooting? There's not that much prison space in the entire state and each adjoining to detain that many people. And what would they do the moment people started shooting back? They'd fold like cheap suits, tails tucked, legs carrying them away for all they were worth. But they won't do that because they are rotted with manifold corruptions which they have all embraced. We are all sick with it and it is not serving us well.

    Even so I must politely disagree. Genius, I have noted, cannot be readily squelched. Kids who are geniuses are so blatantly so, only a true devil, whether parent or other, would take even the least action to suppress what they see. I have also noted that such children tend to be intransigently superior. They just go and do as their natures dictate, and the rest of the world can screw off. Therefore, the only way to stymie such people is to physically damage them, which is a big step beyond merely sending them to the meat grinder. If that is what he means, then that is what he should say. Language is ultimately important and devilishly tricky stuff. Precision in one's manner of expressing himself is of paramount salience, especially where serious matters are concerned. I might amend that a little by pointing out once more that the root cause here is the parent. They so casually and conveniently trust their children to the care of strangers. That's on them 100% in almost all cases.

    Holy crap... is China blowing up? Let us hope so. The "we want freedom" bit... coming from Chinese? That's quite something. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Hundreds of demonstrators and police have clashed in Shanghai as protests over China’s severe COVID-19 restrictions continued into a third day and spread to several other cities. The latest demonstrations — unprecedented in mainland China since President Xi Jinping took power a decade ago — began after 10 people were killed in a fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far-western region of Xinjiang, that many of the protesters blame on protracted COVID-19 lockdowns. The deaths have become a lightning rod for frustrations over Beijing’s dogged commitment to zero-COVID and its combination of strict lockdowns, mass testing and tracking that continues to impede people’s lives three years after the first cases of the then-unknown virus were detected in the central city of Wuhan. “I’m here because I love my country, but I don’t love my government … I want to be able to go out freely, but I can’t. Our COVID-19 policy is a game and is not based on science or reality,” protester Shaun Xiao told the Reuters news agency in Shanghai, China’s largest city.

    Gatto was in his last year or two when I began teaching in the city. Longest two years of my life. By 86 I was on Wall Street. Common as dirt? That depends on how one defines "genius". For some odd reason, my life has been graced with several genius or near-genius level intellects who always make me feel like the dumbest man in the room. Perhaps I am too big a snoot to accept that genius is common as Gatto claims. To me, real genius is rare as lips on chickens and usually comes with an eidetic memory. Lesser forms of genius I might call very common, but I consider those of secondary magnitude. Some of the people I have called friends are true geniuses and I can tell you that being so endowed is very much a mixed blessing. My friend Steve, for example, worked with Seymour Cray back in the bad old days of real computer science. He wrote the entire math libraries for the Crays all by himself. That, my pal, is no mean feat. My friend Dan wrote and entire screen handling library that AT&T used for years. I watched him write it in his basement from soup to nuts in about five hours one Friday evening, while stoned, I kid you not. He invented all manner of things before they became common items. My father's best friend from the old country was a fabulous intellect. His grandfather was Miksa Roth, a famous Hungarian glass artist. Zoli was a singular alcoholic whose capacities in my experience were eclipsed only by the mother of my daughters, and 88# Ukrainian woman who could put down a quart of vodka in short order and you'd never know she'd had a drop. I stayed with her as long as I did because she was so endlessly hot... and sick and twisted like me. One takes their love where it can be found. One of my collleagues and teachers at CUNY, Bob Goldman, is a genius. I used to help him do mathematical proofs in software using Aura and ITP. I'd follow him down some very arcane mathematical rabbit hole, understanding perfectly until he'd hang a sudden left or right and I was instantly lost. I'd just smile and nod as if I knew what he was talking about. He was in high orbit around Jupiter. I was sucking the poo solutino from my neighbor's septic tank. Funny thing about him though, is he'd been married to one of the supermodels of the 70s... like Cheryl Tieg or someone like that, and he'd been an army ranger. He was no typical nerd. One Friday a brother from the local environs (Harlem) decided to rob one of the nice ladies from the Bursar's Office. As he was trying to pry her handbag away, out of nowhere Bob descended upon him and put him in a condition fit for the ER, which is where he ended up, in cuffs. We were all astonished that this nice Jewish boy from Riverdale was a badass mofo. I find that far too many people conflate common creativity, which can be vastly powerful, with actual genius, which is a zebra of a very different stripe. And having eidetic memory doesn't guarantee the caliber of intellect to which I refer. I lost mine in 1992 when I contracted lyme disease and I was never even close to being a genius, sad to say. But Gatto's positions on the nature of the school system are 100% on the money. Having been fool enough to have not quit on my third day as a teacher, the moment I'd twigged to the fact that I'd balled myself in the ass with the choice, I suffered through two years of the unspeakable criminality of American public schools. My friend jake retired just last year. He endured 37 years of that crap and all I can say is that I have to hand it to him for sheer fortitude. When I decided to carry a sidearm to school with me, I knew it was time to go, and I did.

    Gracias. Well yes, but more broadly stated, it stems from the basically ratty nature of the mean human being. I'd not characterize it as frustration, though; more like amusement carrying that hint of head-shaking disgust. A very well chosen term, and one I almost never see employed in the way you do so here. Excellent. It carries a host of implications that paint a picture of beings capable of doing for themselves in ways Theye dread in such hands. Powerful thought in the hands of the rabble is the one thing I believe that Theye fear above all things.

    The fact that any nation views other nations as a threat in this day and age, is all anyone needs to know to come to the correct assessment that we are a species of losers. Is it not bad enough that we have to worry about such matters with individuals and small gangs? That we have to wring our hands over the fact that people now superorganize on national levels... that is the proof that we shall not end well, no matter what happens. The problem isn't communism, or dictatorships. The problem is the human animal, and that animal never changes. I have recently wondered whether that fact is what stands behind this now very obvious push to so-called "transhumanism". It would make very strong sense that Theye would seek to change the fundamental nature of the vastly greater bulk of humanity. Change them so as to become more reliably manageable, which of course necessitates the obviation of our tendency to rebel, regardless of causes and other reasons. The only chances that remain for liberty, so far as I can see, are as follow: A non-scripted reset event occurs, knocking us back to what would essentially become the new stone age. Every nation on the planet is dissolved in terms of what we know as "state governments".

    To answer the question in the OP, I'd say the answer turns on one's specific definition of "winning". I would also point out that winning could be seen along many differing lines. As for my view on the matter, I tend to take the broades philosophical line, which leads me to the opinion that in the case of Russia v. Ukraine, nobody wins regardless of outcomes. Do the dead give the least damn who "won"? Does "winning" make good all the loss of the living, whether from the kin of the dead, those who've been maimed by the acts of madmen, or the losses of other properties, often to the economic destitution of entire families? What is all this bullshit talk of winning? I see none of that anywhere. The human animal is a rotten beast on the whole. I wish I could say we don't deserve what we're getting and stand to see in the future, but I'd be lying. Seriously now, think for a moment of the broader reality. Even the "winners" lose. They bankrupt themselves economically. They lose countless of their own. Those "in charge" become prisoners of the results for which they had such raging erections pursuant to what they thought they wanted. Consider our presidents - their lives are turned to shit in so many respects, not that I'm shedding even a single tear for any of them. Trump can't even poke Melania in the ass without his secret service agents listening in. I'd rather die in a house fire. We are a net-loser species. Every fantastic gain we contrive with our fabulous creativity is eclipsed by that much and more because of our raving stupidity and wild corruption, neither of which do sufficient numbers of us show any manifest desire to change. As I like to quip, we are our own worst enemies.

    I would note that there have been many whose works have expressed a bent to Freemen and autodiathism. What I don't understand is how it can be that people such as Joss Wheadon (Firefly/Serenity) could express such clear ideals as those of what I have labeled the "Principles of Proper Human Relations", yet in their everyday lives wax all stupid-lefty. Honest to God, it makes the least sense to me, especially considering the ways in which such people behave like spoile, tantrum-pitching toddlers in virtually every avenue of their lives. They rant on and on, as we are all too familiar, about their masturbatory fantasies of collectivist utopia, yet produce films, for example, that espouse all the virtues of real liberty, vis-ŕ-vis the pretty slavery that most people conflate with actual freedom. Such people are so utterly intransigent in virtually everything they believe, yet will produce films and other works that run wildly against everything they claim to hold dear as values. This would make sense, were those expressions sarcastically offered with the idea that they be mocked and reviled. But that is not the case. And the expressions are not superficial; one can readily see a deep truth in what has been formulated and set forth. So how is it that given these very fine contrivances of storylines that those responsible are such utterly retarded dicks in every other aspect of life? It is so self-contradictory as to leave my mind rebelling at it. One would think that such beating, flailing sorts would never put out anything that would suggest anything like responsibility for one's actions and feelings, much less the ideas of property, rights, and all the other great virtues and costs of liberty. To my eyes, putting such work out in the ways that I have seen is precisely giving credibility to that which the authors and architects claim to hate with the most bitter venom. One would think not only that they would not produce such work, but would confine themselves to promoting through the telling of tales the great virtues of communism to the exclusion of all else. One would also expect that such infantile humans would not even have a grasp of the realities of freedom, yet some of them have demonstrated a clear grasp. Are those examples mere happenstance? How could it be? It appears statistically just this side of impossible for that many disparate elements of that which is violently hated by a man could haphazardly come in the same work, much less so with the correct structuring of elements relative to each other. So what is the story there? How would a screaming weasel like Wheadon vomit forth work that drips of the Freeman while simultaneously exposing the Weakman and Tyrant for what they are in the most non-equivocating terms? I'd ask whether I've gone insane, but we all know that that horse bolted the stable long ago.

    What would solve it for me is for the forum software to be modified to not display any posts for an ignored user, so I don't get pages of blanks from Anti Globalist. The problem for the servers there, is that would destroy page caching and potentially cause high processing load, if it has to generate pages individually for users based on their /ignore settings. From a programming standpoint definitely do-able though. Otherwise I'd say Anti Globalist has killed the Bestest Picture Thread. I'd say it was intentional. I'd block that behavior if I were moderating.

    One observation: at one point it is asserted that the overarching goal is to reduce population, which may be so. However, if you look carefully at the screen, you will see displayed some electronic document that clearly refers to population growth. Population and population growth, while related, are not the same things. This would seem to me either a very careless error, or indicative of a bill of goods being peddled. Devil is often in the details.

    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.
