Our New Dark Age

The importance of this event should not be underestimated. This signals the presence of a new dark age, truly.

I, coincidentally, am involved intimately in the dynamics and themes of this darkness, as it has affected my relationship with my children because of their mother’s superstitious attitude toward life on Earth, which she inherited from her superstitious parents, particularly her mother, who likes to believe in ghosts and spirits and such.

So here we are. Where actual scientific method has been largely ruled out as something we can rely on and trust as a way of guiding us through the misty haze of evidence which is limitless. We must rely on something to guide the way, to measure what is right and wrong, what is left and right, what is odd or even. Unfortunately, despite all of the book learnin’ people have participated in over the last several decades, centuries, etc., people keep thinking that things like fragile, illogical, error-prone, synthetic belief systems such as Christianity ™ and Islam and Judaism are both relevant, important, reasonable, inherently valuable, PROVABLE, and, worst, enforceable.

Look no farther, this is the problem we face as a civilization.

The bar is pretty low for politically firing people these days.

That college needs to examine its integrity.

Glenn Greenwald: Obama’s anti-press measures ‘are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration’

Thanks, Obama!

And an important thing to recognize is that it wouldn’t really have mattered who was president at that time; the same thing would have happened.  Replace Obama with a Clinton, a Bush, Joe Biden — any owned and well-heeled politician that toes the line — the will of the military industrial complex would have been obeyed.

For a change, try electing people based on their bold ideas and principles rather than name recognition and folksiness.

Free speech must be balanced with critical thinking and education or else it doesn’t work


Stop Letting Republicans Lie on TV About Climate Science from politics

Our ideas about free speech might need to change unless we become a much more educated electorate. There isn’t enough critical thinking on the part of the audience to compensate for and process the massive amount of deception and lies that are constantly broadcast by our private media.

Cheating = The American Way ?  We can choose a different path.

Strategies that let super PACs delay revealing their donors until after the election are gaining popularity among both Democrats and Republicans.
