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.)

The Daily Servant of Power

Standard

Today’s servant of power is:aristotle

Aristotle

I always thought the reverence people had for ancient Athens and Aristotle represented a lack of genuine insight.

Ancient Athens is no example of direct democracy.  When women aren’t given the right to vote and slavery is a common staple of society, it’s still just elitism masquerading as liberalism.

Aristotle, himself, tried to find excuses for why slavery was justified for his own self-convenience – nothing more.

On top of that he engaged in the constant fear-mongering oppressors always use against the people they victimize.  The British fear of the East Indians, the fear European settlers had for the Native Americans, the fear Westerners have for Middle Easterners despite using their industrialized militaries to slaughter them in large numbers or various tactics to destabilize the region.

This mentality is pathological (in a way that makes it even more evil.) Here’s a perfect illustration: Tampa police: Marine reservist attacked Greek priest he mistook for terrorist

The Spartans were likewise “terrified” of the Helots, whom they had enslaved.  Aristotle compares the Helots to “an enemy constantly sitting in wait of the disaster of the Spartans”. [1]

Lying for the oppressors says everything about a person’s true character and, at the end of the day, character is all that truly matters in terms of alleviating human suffering and building a truly peaceful global community.

For me, Aristotle is like Orwell. I agree with many of Orwell’s observations and assertions and often make use of his ideas.  Nineteen Eighty-Four illustrates very well the use of a constant threat of enemy attack to justify endless, mindless warfare.  However, if Orwell were alive today, he might also be engaging in mindless fear-mongering and Islamophobia and would most likely have supported genocide in Gaza.  People become very different when it comes to power and easily do everything they originally purported to oppose.

Thinking Challenge

The Black Death that swept through Europe was not nearly as bad as the decimation of the Native populations upon European contact. So why is the Black Death portrayed as so much worse?

In that same vein, why is that mild tragedy for us as Westerners is made to seem so much worse than complete annihilation of foreigners?

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.
