The Elite Fit to Rule

Standard

The only elite fit to rule over humanity are those who understand the value of direct democracy, in my opinion.  They are the truly sane human beings who must push back any force that tries to enforce a minority will on the majority.

This “elite” supporting TRUE democracy can (and hopefully does) include the majority of people.

People’s emotions are more accurate than what elitists define as “logic/reason.”  Every person who pretends to be pure logic/intellect supports imperialism, military power, oppressing other groups, and—in many historical cases—slavery, racism, sexism, rape, torture, etc.  People who say they are pure logic/reason also despise direct democracy despite supporting invading other countries using the phoney excuse of spreading democracy.

People who pretend they are of advanced intellect always need to be extreme elitists who justify the worst abuses of power because in reality they aren’t reasonable or logical in the slightest.  However, if they talk in a condescending manner, create the illusion of intellectual sophistication, and support the oppressor, it makes no difference how stupid or nonsensical they are.

People’s emotions are LOGICAL and accurate the majority of the time.  For those times intuitive instinct is not accurate, logical extrapolation of commonly held truths to broader situations, allowing the maintenance of logical consistency, is helpful.

People who think pure logic can guide all actions are not logical at all in most cases.  They just don’t want humans to trust their gut instincts and want to enforce elitism using excuses designed to sound logical.

People should trust their instincts and temper it with a little bit of logic here and there for greater accuracy.  People who want humans to be PURE logic are typically asking for humanity to be wrong/inaccurate the large majority of the time under the illusion that such actions make sense from some special realm of advanced intellect (which in reality does not exist.)

Objectivity

The idea that there is an objective truth or reality outside of our experience of such things and the intellectualization of these concepts (which is so beloved in the Western tradition) often results in a dissociation between man (or woman) and truth where people no longer internalize what they expound and speculate upon. It basically allows for people to discuss one thing and behave incongruently, in my opinion.

As I’ve stated before, I feel humans can only approach or experience the objective nature of truth subjectively the way the Indian mystics and sages did.  It’s why I feel someone like Friedrich Nietzsche didn’t hold a candle to someone like Gautama Buddha.

Buddha (if I’m recalling things correctly) always discussed how people must achieve enlightenment for themselves so they can see through enlightened eyes.  Such things are a realm beyond pure intellectualization/conceptualizaiton and can only be achieved through internalization and experience, in my opinion.  Someone like Neitzche and many of the “enlightenment” philosophers of Europe seemed to think all truth could be enscribed {neologism: set down into writing}.  Perhaps one day this might be true, but acknowledgement of our current limitations (which is part of truth) is always important to maintain.  At our current stage, we are no where close to being able to transcribe truth into pure intellectual reasoning.  Thus, people are still required to practice as they preach because there is no perfect formula for human decency (as of yet and who knows if there ever will be.)

Dissecting the Saboteur

Standard

The saboteur is an infinite time waster.

This person is lying when he says that the link provided was to the wrong page, because in a different comment, he already showed that he got to the right page:

Capturesab2

(ie. the page with more blog posts that supposedly say nothing about Dawkins or group selection, which again makes no sense because how would he know that without reading the posts? If he read them, he would see they discuss Dawkins and group selection in detail.) So obviously he did get to the right page.

Next, he keeps trying to mislead me by telling me to provide more links. For example, for the bitcoin donations, you don’t need a link. All you need is the bitcoin address which is posted up plain and clear for everyone to see.

Deceiving, misleading, and confusing people is a very mean and rotten thing to do • Being pathologically wired to behave this way is disturbing beyond words.

The Daily Servant of Power

Standard

Today’s servant of power is:

N. Bohr

Niels Bohr

Bohr’s hatred for breadth, intuition, and understanding alongside his mentality that only that which makes him look skilled and enabled is practical and important makes men like Bohr perfect servants of power.

This is because men like this – who solely worship reason, logic, and the intellect – can contribute to the creation of advanced weaponry with zero understanding of what the technology is actually going to be used for.

Men like Bohr do not care as long as it looks like they are doing something useful, in my opinion.

His need to stamp out higher realms of thought in order to maintain his own glow of expertism and enablement makes him a fitting choice for today’s servant of power.
