zhai2nan2 tried to theorize about the right to keep and bear arms. He called a society centered on this “panpherohoplocracy.”

Recently Ian Welsh has been channelling Isegoria and writing about panpherohoplocracy. The following is condensed from Ian Welsh’s original, and you can read the whole piece at the URL below:

Chris Martenson explains how the Federal Reserve will kill the USA’s military “sinews”

Nervos belli, pecuniam.

Endless money forms the sinews of war.
-Cicero

Chris Martenson wrote:

At this point, based on Yellen’s testimony, I think it’s time to say what everybody is already thinking: the Fed Chairwoman is literally displaying psychopathic tendencies by blaming her victims. I’m serious: if the Fed were an individual, we’d have no problem identifying its behaviors in psychologically pathological terms. Continue reading

Don’t just make noise about Gamergate, Re-play classic old video games, like Postal 2

Hadley Bennett has asked – “What is our victory condition?”

http://www.socialmatter.net/2014/10/29/moving-beyond-hit-run-warfare-gamergate-can-actually-win/

However, I think HB has lost sight of the insidious nature of the real enemy – namely, pseudo-journalism.

Real journalism is concerned with reporting the facts.

Pseudo-journalism is an attempt to secure a position of social power by which normal people can be subordinated to centralized power.

The Gamergate kerfluffle has elicited the following admission:

There are ethical concerns being ignored or dismissed because they are smothered by misogynistic rhetoric. There are some reasonable points among the grime. Some of those points–that games reporters loathe their audience; that games reporters are too close to the people they cover; that games reporters are too unwilling to see multiple angles of an issue–are valid, critical, and worth plenty of scrutiny.

The pseudo-journalistic social climbers of the West think that they should retract some of their obnoxious contempt for the peasants, in order to make sure that, in the long run, the bureaucrats can always crush the peasants.

The pseudo-journalists believe that they are the true humans and the gamers are filthy cattle who ought to be ruled and exploited. The pseudo-journalists make noise about “journalistic ethics” which really means that they want to maintain centralized media control and to suppress decentralized media.

Where do we – who do not have centralized power or social-climbing patrons – begin with OUR media effort?

Clearly, what is needed is an embrace of truly radical art – such as the game Postal 2.

I think the trailer speaks for the virtues of the game more eloquently than I could hope to do.

The company that made the game has some interesting discussions regarding Gamergate:

To return to HB’s question – “What is our victory condition?”

Our victory condition is when we are free to play new games that are just as shocking as Postal 2 every week.

Transgenic plagues in fiction

I’m going to quote from Chapter 30, but don’t skip ahead, read the whole book, it’s a quick read:

The lesson, once again, was that closed borders were essential to survival. It wasn’t just movements of people that had to be controlled. It was easy enough to send a bacillus by shipping container or mixed in a bulk commodity. Foreign trade fell drastically throughout the world as every import had to be quarantined, examined, and tested. Only what was local was safe, and even at home we developed a “neighborhood watch” to report any suspicious basement laboratories. This didn’t require a police state. People were eager volunteers, because they knew the mortal danger genetic engineering posed to everyone. Continue reading

Wayne Dyer is a leftist

Wayne Dyer is a famous advocate of positive thinking.  His leftist slant makes me wonder whether he can perceive current events.

His words suggest that he believes in the linearity of progress – he thinks that if slavery is abolished in the cotton plantations of the USA, then it must vanish from the entire world.  (In fact, there are still chattel slaves, but the USA media doesn’t report on them, so apparently Dyer is happily oblivious.)

The following words are quoted from Wayne Dyer, except from the editorial criticism printed in blue at the end.
