    Home ( Home Truths. Blood and Stones. Stoicism Moi! 

    letting it go and being at peace is exactly what I need to do. The Filing penalty really is annoying it is based on nothing a pure chancers piss in the wind, I literally do not have a bank account any more and do not wish to have one I am interested in participating as little as possible in the consumer machine, there is plenty left in the world without all of that and I am finding it rather more fulfilling for me personally.

    I watched this film yesterday hadn’t seen it before the Wikipedia article particularly the talk section is quite interesting it was made in 2009, Released then anyhow a lot of it is very good there is an ironic streak shot through as it is funded by a French luxury brands corporation. The films overall message chimes with my own life philosophy but it ultimately is wooly and shot through with Goreisms a la an inconvienient truth. The truth is indeed uncomfortable but corporations pushing luxury brands are chief amongst those who would obscure it as [b]Turkeys do not vote for christmas.[/b]

    Google this term ( al gore carbon trading company)

    Balance Balance Balance, the artificial system of government is best executed where its interlocutors are not allowed to reach balance where any distraction and discomfort that can be employed to prevent clear critical thinking and sight of the choices which will lead to self fulfillment are necessarily and usefully employed.
    I can fill out the forms and observe the Keep off the Grass signs, but what a shit system it is. Haebeus Corpus is long dead in fascist England and the Fascist Anglo American Gulag.

    Was reading this the other day.

    http://classics.mit.edu/Epictetus/epicench.html

    28. If a person gave your body to any stranger he met on his way, you would certainly be angry. And do you feel no shame in handing over your own mind to be confused and mystified by anyone who happens to verbally attack you?
    42. When any person harms you, or speaks badly of you, remember that he acts or speaks from a supposition of its being his duty. Now, it is not possible that he should follow what appears right to you, but what appears so to himself. Therefore, if he judges from a wrong appearance, he is the person hurt, since he too is the person deceived. For if anyone should suppose a true proposition to be false, the proposition is not hurt, but he who is deceived about it. Setting out, then, from these principles, you will meekly bear a person who reviles you, for you will say upon every occasion, “It seemed so to him.”

    Onwards and upwards.

    Sale of RBS 

    This Bank should be fully nationalised regionalised and along wiht the other government banks used as a new base for issuing debt free or at least ethical interest rates for both savers and borrowers. Government does not have to borrow in the Markets as they are euphemistically called, this is an abrogation of their responsibilities to the common wealth. The sooner there’s a revolution the better peacefull of course how about a British Spring.

    On Dawkins I couldn’t answer for what consensus with New age hippies is my objection to him and other mainstream academic scientists is their clinging to conventional modes of thought essentially Platonic and empirical Matthew arnold, John Ruskin, Thomas Paine are more in my line of country and this guy also this quote he gives from Albert Einstein who has been horribly misrepresented and badly served with lesser people hitching a lift on his broad intellectual shoulders.

    I consider it quite possible that physics cannot be based on the field concept, i. e., on continuous structures. In that case nothing remains of my entire castle in the air gravitation theory included, [and of] the rest of modern physics. — Albert Einstein

    The other bloke was the Nobber guy I posted his standing wave video he has a programme still on the I player about cold fusion, well he along with Dawkins reject the thought of people like Maurice Cotterall completely ignore the contributions of Nikola tesla and probably have never heard of Emmanuel veriskovsky ( when worlds Collide?) . Cotteral has and electronic theory for Gravity theres also Hannes Alvers and his Plasma work.
    Theres a lot of hype for the string theory guys the Nuclear age guys and those that say hydrocarbons are all that are really economically viable its establishment statist bull shit and to me like the left right debate the empirical scientist as aethiest and organised religion debate is a similar statist establishment diversion.
    Philistine online etymology.
    O.T. people of coastal Palestine, who made war on the Israelites, mid-14c., from O.Fr. Philistin, from L.L. Philistinus, from Late Gk. Philistinoi, from Heb. P’lishtim, “people of P’lesheth” (“Philistia”); cf. Akkad. Palastu, Egyptian Palusata; the word probably is the people’s name for itself.
    philistine 
    “person deficient in liberal culture,” 1827, originally in Carlyle, popularized by him and Matthew Arnold, from Ger. Philister “enemy of God’s word,” lit. “Philistine,” inhabitants of a Biblical land, neighbors (and enemies) of Israel (see Philistine). Popularized in Ger. student slang (supposedly first in Jena, late 17c.) as a contemptuous term for “townies,” and hence, by extension, “any uncultured person.” Philistine had been used in a humorous fig. sense of “the enemy” in Eng. from c.1600.

    Back to somewhere over the rainbow another few days I think to get it down.

    How Gravity Works – Maurice Cotterell

    Read the Epilogue and see how the dead tree Peer review of publishing in Academia is a process as infected with selective bias as any other form of mass popular main stream media today.

    The shame of the AV referendum. 

    I’m still gutted that AV didn’t get the nod at the referendum in the UK, to be honest that was the best the LIB DEMS had to offer their toadying to the LAd Cameron and Boy Gideon and conversion to mainstream fascism seems almost complete.

    Wrote this to a friend at the time I haven’t changed my mind I’m just surprised that a year later or even two some times one loses track that I feel even more strongly about it now.

    Nigeria? who knows take your Pick Mike a vote for AV would give some hope that the UK doesn’t misuse our Armed forces for this East India Company type of expeditionism for the creation of debt and money. The armed forces should be for our sovereign defence and homeland security not to further the profits of Haliburton, Carlyle and so on and to provide more fuel for the orgy of speculation masquerading as an efficient provision of a means of exchange. I’m boning up on my political economy at the moment sometimes I wish I had had the academic background and presence of mind to read Greats. Nothing to stop me now so I’m having a ball that’s the beauty of the internet it is the greatest library in the world and if you have the inclination you can guide your own learning through learning first which questions to ask. Turning off our televisions and looking for books and articles and discussions in Blogs on the internet is the path to greater knowledge I think. Up to a point the internet reflects the real world and its descent into ignorance and apathy but there is a rich seam just below the surface a kind of Internet of collegiate civility where substance counts more than superficial style I think it is from here that the ideas will be recovered to inform future generations to get us back on track Education in Schools is an indoctrination not an enlightenment people are unhappy and they know it but don’t realise why. This morning I was reading about the Game Laws in the late 17th and 18th centuries its remarkable how disassociated we have become from our social history and the shaping of our society into the dysfunctional design of today you can imagine my surprise to find that by definition I am Anarchist and not a Capitalist? The question should be by who’s definition and why do the two words carry such strong associations of one good the other bad? Great stuff meanwhile Vote for AV force another election and get rid of this Lad Cameron he knows the rules of the game only to well but in his game the off side rule only applies to the opposition and the second 11 is so because it simply isn’t given Bats with Handles and suitable protection around the nether regions to make a fair game.For second 11 read the shrinking and soon to be extinct middle classes thats just about everybody with an income of less than 100k a year and a net worth of i’d say around 750k or less. If you want representation vote for AV the other lot represent only your employers where those employers are large corporations that is and it is only through AV you have any hope of a representative government that will represent the needs of the population as a whole.

    Comedy and Performance activism. 

    [quote=”Roger”]

    The tar distraction in Alberta Canada is a disgrace This guy was interviewed by an interviewer I have listened to a lot Sue Supriano of steppin out of Babylon.

     http://www.suesupriano.com/archive.html

    Lately I have listened to a lot more Lecture material from Noam Chomsky and others but Sues interviews have been a great pointer to a lot of issues I spent the first 45 years of my life only vaguely aware of and in a lot of cases completely ignorant of. On Climate Change I am not convinced that the Co2 narrative has the same objective as published I think the subtext is related to opening up a new type of commodity for use as a FIAT monetary base and any environmental aspects are secondary to any motivation of those who could implement them.( The Economic crisis and the rise of technocratic government hijack is at its core bound tooth and claw to the strangulation of the money supply by banks to promote their theft of real assets as they have first call on money created as debt by them which is over 97% of the money supply)

    Even though artists like Reverend Billy seem convinced of the C02 Gospel where I am completely at one with them is on positive action against polluters and destructive environmental methods it seems that lack of regulation and accountability at a central Government level does mean that activism and boycotts are what can get these faceless corporations to cease killing the planet and all that exist upon it.

    Anyway check out some of the good rev I think he’s quite funny.

    This is another Guy Sue Supriano interview that also made me laugh and think.

    The Knowable? Beliefs Knowledge Truth ? 

    On the knowable Plato gave us Socrates and his allegory of the cave. Hannah barbara gave us that’s my Mommy.
    So what beliefs do we hold that do not stand up to an objective test of certain knowledge? In this cartoon I see Tom as the State and Corporate Crony capitalism.
