If you live to eat, you will eat a lot, and live a little; if you eat to live, you will eat a little, and live a lot.
There really is no reason for me to talk about this, I am definitely confident that everyone in the world is already an expert on this topic; I would just be wasting everyone's time by adding more stuff to this discussion. It has already been proven that we all know everything there is to know about the "Kruger-Dunning Effect"; thus, this conclusion goes without saying.
For millions of years nature has evolved living beings by a certain mechanism. As far as resistance to microbial attack, living beings relied on active and passive ways of dealing with harmful bacteria and virus. Then, someone thought to take a more proactive approach and developed vaccination.
Science analyzed vaccination and deemed it scientific; thus many vaccines were created over the years, and the quality of vaccines improves from one year to the next (see flu vaccines).
Nowadays, a portion of the population wants to revert to the old ways of fighting against harmful microbial attacks. I say let them; but, the people that still want to use modern ways of doing this should be allowed to do so, as well.
What this means is that the only way forward is segregation; the children that use vaccines should be separated from the children that don't use vaccines.
Let nature and freedom of choice do what they have always done.
China makes industrial pollution and sells the products of that to become the biggest economic power in the world; USA makes agricultural pollution and sells the products of that to remain the biggest economic power in the world; and everyone makes weapons of war pollution to improve their economic power on the regional level and on the world stage.
Depression is the part of your life where all the illusions you had about existence come crashing down, all the fairy tales that kept you warm throughout your childhood, all those get shaken hard when you are depressed; and if you don't shake them off of you, you'll fall into madness, you will lose all contact with actual existence, and that is followed swiftly by the descent into depravity.
Depending on how strong you are, and how strong the friendships in your life are, you get over your depression faster or slower, or you never get over it at all. Some people get broken by depression, never recover from it, they only keep on living by drowning themselves in drugs, the cowards call these medication; some people emerge better, wiser, having achieved a distilled undestranding of existence, they see the world in a way that is much closer to the truth than at any previous time in their lives.
Before Henry Ford, Humanity was a bunch of horse shit shovellers; after Henry Ford, Humanity is a bunch of green house gas farters.
The Russian Bear, well you can talk about the Russian Bear for as long as the russian royalty was tied to the european royalty. After that, under Stalin, you can talk about the Russian Wolf; just like a wolf, Stalin knew how to get the most out of everything, including situations where Russia was outgunned, or outnumbered, or even both; and he knew how to rally other hungry wolves into a pack and take down adversaries bigger than himself.
Nowadays, under Putin, we are talking about the Russian Dog. A vile, mangy, malnourished, lonely beast, showing signs of rabies. A dog with no solutions, and showing no potential for coming up with any solutions in the future. A dog with no pack, for unlike Stalin, Putin failed at rallying other dogs to his cause. A dog living in a world of Tigers, like China, and Dragons, like USA. A dog stuck in ways long abandoned by those who compete for the World Crown. The Russian Dog is relegated to barking insanely at the back of the yard, while the high rollers discuss civilized at the front of the yard about how the World should look, and how people should live in it.
The Russian Dog scares only puppies nowadays, while it waits, scared, fearing its inevitable fate. A fate the Russian Dog has seen other dogs succumb to; a fate the Russian Bear and the Russian Wolf have bestowed on many dogs, in the past.
First the dog will be tied to a post; then, if it does not behave, the dog will have its canines filed down to an appropriate size and sharpness; after that, if it still continues to cause trouble, it will get a muzzle, maybe as a Christmas gift; and lastly, after all else has falied, the dog will be taken behind the shed, and one loud shot will be heard, followed by the silence everyone yearns for.
Politics is the dirtiest business there is. There is no contest here. Selling poison to people while branding it as food, like the fast food and beverage industry does, bah! that's nothing. Selling water with lead in it? Easy! Anyone can do that! no problem. War? You think War is dirty? With innocent kids getting blown up by bombs, and mines, and IEDs. Bah! That's easy! Just say: "Collateral Damage". And the problem goes away.
Even Ethnic Cleansing is a cleaner business than Politics. No really! Think about it. When you commit genocide you have a clear, well defined activity. You are exterminating humans that fall in some arbitrary number of categories. And, at the end of it all, you have to do the cleanup yourself. Obviously you do; you just wiped out everyone that isn't you!
See! Clean! A very clean business!
Godwin's Law For The Third Millenium. Don't you know it? It sates: All converations, eventually, lead to that racist head of state. You know the one I mean. The one that can't finish a speech without insulting someone, anyone, for whatever made-up reason. You know him, the one with the blonde comb-over. That one! Who did you think I was talking about?
Treated like a human
If you want to be treated like a human, Then you have to prove
You are smarter than an ape,
Each and every day.
Posting on The Internet
Do you post shit online?
I used to post shit online back in the day, on the early social media; I think they are all dead by now, or at least I hope so; I looked some up the other day, they are not all dead!
I don't post shit online anymore, you know, like every single detail of my life. I stopped doing that years ago because I noticed something.
I started seeing supercomputer after supercomputer go on line. IBM, Google, Apple, all the big corporations, and all the wealthy governments of the world; they all own or lease supercomputers. And I was thrilled by this, I was telling everybody:
Guys, look! Look at all these supercomputers going on line! They are going to help humanity solve the big problems of the world. And they have, they help create climate models, disease spreading models, and all kinds of very complicated modeling tasks that would take humans equipped with regular computers, like the one you have in your pocket, years to do; a supercomputer does the same work in seconds. Seconds! It takes longer for humans to program the machine, than it takes it to do the work.
Then, after a while, I started seeing data centers go on line, one after another; this time, at breakneck speed.
Hey! I'm not that stupid, I can put two and two together, you know! And if I can figure it out, then they can, too.
Everything you put online is stored and processed. If you have ever sent a dickpick over the internet, or stored it on the internet, then there is a corporation/government somewhere out there, that knows exactly how long your johnson is.
Now that the tyrants of the world have their hands on the weapons of mass distruction capable of exterminating the human species, I think time has come for humanity to invent Artificial Intelligence, so that the future of intelligence is secure; even if, clearly, the future of humans is not.
Today's P.C.People are just like religious fundamentalists: they take all expressions and words literally; they have no concept of nuance, and/or context.
If the P.C.People heard Diderot's:
"Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest."
they would ask: "What about the women?" and then say: "More CIS Males dividing power among themselfs."
Three philosophers walk into a bar. Three hours later, the bartender kicks them out into the street.
They start protesting:
Confucious says: This kind of behavior will lead to the collapse of The Social Contract, and ultimately bring about an anarchical society!
Aristotle scolds the bartender: Young man, this is no way for you to figure out who you really are, and why you are here!
Tolstoy argues that the only sustainable way of solving social problems is through non-violent resistance.
Then they all ask in unison: Why did you kick us out?
The bartender yells at them: 'Cause you didn't order anything!
Two jews walk into a bar; one is part of a vulnerable minority, and tasked with bringing peace to the Middle East; the other is an enabler of radicalism, racism, and hate, and is tasked with colluding with Putin.
I'm not for the patriarchy, and I'm not for the matriarchy. I'm for the 'have-fucking-brain-in-your-fucking-head-chy'!
Use reason, people. We are all different. Stop trying to shove people into category shelves.
