“GNOTHI SEAUTON!” (Greek: γνῶθι σεαυτόν), said the ancient Greeks (we’re not sure which one, exactly)– Know Thyself! To this general idea, Socrates added: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

That is, true wisdom (true authenticity with self, and others, and ultimately, God & reality), requires time, maturity, and effort– and a mirror. Some introspection. Some self-knowledge of strengths and weaknesses, fixable and unfixable, light & shadows, good and evil– OF YOURSELF. FIRST. With humility, and good humour.

Believe it or not, things like that Greek saying used to be taught on undiversity campuses. The Western way of knowing, of deliberation, moral action, of self-criticism and criticism of a society, of beauty, truth, goodness and right behaviour. Not so much in some sectors of the 21st Century modern college, though.

OK, so 2016– whither ‘Know Thyself’? The examined life? AWOL. Tantrums? Awesome!!

For many current and recent miseducatees, their radicalized professors fill them up with gross lies and half-truths and disproven faerie-tales and propaganda, get them all wound up and passionate, and release them like flying monkeys to accuse, judge, attack, grief, and mock– and even physically assaultThe Evil Other. Look outwards! Look over there! No mirrors needed! Smite!

For unreflective SJWism, all that is imperfect & evil is externalized: know thyself know the enemy! Blame & shame! Attack the ignorants! Down with the evil & wrong-thinks! Juden Raus!  Credere, obbedire, combattere! Smash the four olds! (破四旧). No think, just hate.

Waaaaaaaaaaaah!

Put down the bong, the feminist sociology textbook, and your smart-clickety– and grab a mirror, dear rads. Got mirror yet?

Dear SJWs, Campus radicals, progressives– you are the violent and dangerous ones. You are the assaulters, the silencers, the haters, the threateners, the fraud-artists, the no-platformers, the fanatics, the screamers, the interruptors.  The bullies who ignore the right of all to have a say.

Your ignorance-fueled moral fervor does not make you actual  heroes– it’s turning you into 1930s-style Leftist/ Socialist thugs. The fact that you may have nose-rings and tie-dye clothes and purple hair is utterly superficial– you are the Black, Brown, Green shirted barbarians you are claiming to warn everybody else about. You.

A Word To Students

Your radical profs are using, abusing, misusing, and cheating you. ‘Friendly’ and ‘cool’? Whatevs. You are expendable tools in their master-plan utopian games.

Truth– They are only teaching you 1/10th of 1% of the intellectual, philosophical, artistic, literary, and other facets of knowledge which are rightly your inheritance. What dribs and drabs of truth they ration out?  All bent and twisted through circus-clown mirrors of radical distortion.

Moreover, these con-artists and their costly scam is stealing the formative years of your life, rewarding you with fools gold for your effort and money, and not preparing you for life, heaven & hell, work, adulthood & parenthood & citizenship.. nada.

How about… fact & truth based learning? The books your profs forbid?  Reading? Thinking & debate? Religion & faith? Uniting the passion of youth with the wisdom of the West? Unstoppable! World-changing!!

A Word To The Grown-Ups

dv1850045

Choose very carefully.. or you get a graduated job-free lunatic.

Parents, before you send your kid to college, find out what college will give you in return on your investment of life in the kid, and your investment of time and money for a college. You want a smart, educated, work-ready, well-read life-long learner and adult, not a lazy stoned propaganda-spewing basement commie being bitter on social media for the next 10 years.

Parents and prospective students– Does your proposed place of study have an active Women’s Centre? Safe spaces? Gender Studies Program? Black Lives Matters? Lots of radical campus groups? RED ALERT! No world-class or national-class scholars (or scholar-authors), or well-spoken of programs in real studies areas? RED ALERT! Learn the warning signs of SJW-brain-cancer growth places, and avoid them, as you would steer clear of live cancer soup, or a Nazi-decorated university setting.

BkPlJ9X

Colleges? Take the hint from the Mizzou fallout. No more pandering.

Shut the radical ‘departments’ down, realize that pandering to the Radical Leftards will crush your school as word gets out, and parents wake up. Do what the awesome OSU leadership did— they told cry-bullies “No, you can’t trespass and harass our staff. Get out or get arrested and get completely off campus.” A tiny start.

~ WHAT BINKS KNOWS about high finance could probably fill a thimble– but the world is a mess just now, and it will soon be biting all of us in the butt. So here goes.

In Canada, our new PM is aligned with the Old Liberal-Maurice $trong axis, and so when the international masters of money say jump, he starts jumping, even before asking “How high?” So much for “new leadership”.

Whee! Into The Red!

image_preview

The world in 2016 is drowning in debt, weak economies, high taxes, and rock-bottom consumer & public confidence. With good reason. And just how bad?

“The bank stocks are now warning investors that it is time to get money and assets out of the banking system.”

Thus, as Europe and Japan and China are financially stricken, leaders and experts are trying to figure out what to do, to keep the house of cards mostly upright– grab private pension funds? Cut back nanny-state goodies? Austerity policies? Invest in infrastructure? Deficit spending? Defaulting on national and international debts? Which way forward?

Or, try evil ideas like NIRPing (Negative Interest Rate Policy, where you directly fund the banks & the state even more = yet another tax); and how about ideas like that floated by the IMF (International Monetary Fund) that, you know, just maybe, everybody could allow a 10% tax on our private savings to pay down government debt? For a start?

The Vampires Bite

canadatax

You know, because bankrupt banks, corporations, and governments are entirely the fault of tax-payers, right? In Canada, our total tax-burden (taxes, fees, GST, hidden taxes, tax-on-tax) has been estimated to be as high as 70-74%, though officially about 42%.  And even as Liberal-misrun Ontario drowns in debt and NDP-stricken Alberta is shutting up shop, PM Shiny Pony is a fan of big government debt, like his Dad, because spending money we don’t have yet will solve all our problems.. for now.

Glorious leader actually has few options, given that the Canada he has inherited is still deeply debt & deficit ridden; our economy, business, and financial health is lagging; our dollar is shrinking again (partly a vote of non-confidence by the money-markets in Trudeau’s financial acumen). The relative boom-times of the ’60s and the ’80s and ’90s are gone.

Stop Stealing Mah Moneys!

Picture 9.png

In Japan, the net effect of NIRP? Socks, mattresses, and safes. Banks losing deposits, and quickly. Inflation continues (rising prices hurting the poor most of all), as the taxes rise on the middle class. And did we mention the massive Japanese birth dearth?

Into those socks and safes, and under those matresses go people’s personal savings. So now japan and other nations are having problems with money hoarding of large denominations, hence more printing by national banks of large denomination banknotes (= further shrinking the currency), just as an entree:

Kuroda’s Bank of Japan just went to negative rates in late January, but hasn’t had any effect  on inflation so far. One early effect has been a surge in purchases of home safes as consumers withdraw their money from banks. Kuroda has announced plans to go deeper into negative territory if he feels it is needed.

I’d expect the same hoarding response in any country where people are not brainwashed into the fraud of handing over all “The Government’s Money” to the government, and the ruling banks. Odd how that “little temporary emergency income tax” to fund World War I ended us up here a century later, isn’t it?

People Peopling On

handsshake-auction-barter-trade-17406503

Hence the rise in reasonable tax evasion & avoidance, grey market and black marketeering, yard sales, barter, work for direct cash-in-hand, and other age-old normal human economic activities when things get tough. I can’t blame them.

If your crippling tax rate (as in Canada) is more than you spend on your basic household necessities, is it morally wrong to pay as little tax as you can (which the tax-tyrant governments call ‘avoidance’)? If you have nothing to save at the end of each paycheck after the bills and taxes are paid, how can people have financial security, or a future? If your corrupt provincial government overcharges the public $37 billion in power-rates over 8 years, but refuses to refund or reduce rates, what’s a person to do?

Moar Bureaucratics!

Trust-fund multi-millionaire Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s answer to overburdened Canadians struggling to make ends meet during an extended national and global depression, and critical slow-motion financial emergency? More government, & even more spending, taxes, and tax-collectors!

“In this budget, even before the Panama Papers came out, we had allocated an extra $440 million to the Canada Revenue Agency to ensure they are empowered to go after tax avoidance,” Trudeau said. [ my emphasis ]

This from a comfy weasel-worder who has never been involuntarily cold, hungry, badly dressed, chronically malnourished, bankrupt, or had to constantly worry and pinch pennies just to make ends meet, balance a budget, clip all the coupons, and just go without in some months. I’ve been there, and so have a lot of people. And more will be headed that way in the next decade, as the net effect of the current economics is to erase the middle class, inflate the government class, and profit the richest 1%, as usual.

Godless Troll Wars?

SO I’M LEARNING (if slowly) that there’s absolutely nobody more smarter than an intertube atheist. Nobody, ever, anywheres.

In Christian circles, there’s such a thing as “preaching to the choir”. In web-infidel circles, the comment sections everywhere are a veritable Echo Chamber of very smug, self-satisfied clevers who have read Same Harris, watched Bill Nye and read some Hitchins and the infamous Dawkins, and don’t you dare try and take them on, lowly fool! Christers and other pathetic defenders of mindless superstition, beware!

Mind you, most of these ‘experts’ are mostly not deeply educated on anything except ‘Atheism/ Agnosticism’, and have no scope of history, philosophy, Biblical knowledge, or interpretation larger than a few books, and several dozen YouTube videos. It’s a puddle, not a lake– let alone an ocean’s depth of true wisdom and education and insight.

On The Intertoobs

This is sad-making, for Binks. As I noted a few posts ago, I like the YouTube channels of self-proclaimed atheists like Sargon Of Akkad— to which I’d add HoneyBadgerRadio, Thunderf00t, Karen Straughan, Vernaculis, Woolly Bumblebee, ShoeOnHead, johntheother, Feminism LOL, and others.

But there’s a dirty secret about most of these ‘open-minded’ characters which I’ll now reveal– despite the fact these cultural libertarian guys & gals are all great in their own ways for smiting the feminist, SJW, and Cry-Bully tribes (their alienated fellow Leftists), they are still very tribal themselves, and generally won’t engage in actual discussion– however friendly & reasonable– with religious believers.. especially the smart and friendly ones with an education.

Nothing. Nada. Silence. Can’t be having none of that. I’ve tried.

Christians Have The Derp.  Derp!

I mean, We All Know™ that all the Christians are all American-style fundamentalist Westboro Baptist bigotted science-hating anti-intellectual flat-earthing creationists, right? Morons. Nitwits. Stupids, with a retarded and childish set of beliefs, right? Derpy derp derp.

Enter YouTube Atheist Christer-basher CyaLatte (an Aussie), as a typical example of the tiresomely godless folks I’ve run into online almost constantly (think: very vocal ex-smoker). CyaLatte’s been in a sniping-war in the YouTube comments with myself on this video, together with some other addled glutton for punishment named Jeff Rosenbury.

Enjoy the following. My comment is last.

So saith,

The Binks


 (1) Jeff Rosenbury8:07 AM
How do we tell which god is God? Well you might look at His creation and make some deductions using — science perhaps?Tolerance is not a scientific value. Science allows no forgiveness. There is no excuse for a wrong answer. Science does not place value on human life. Therefore the logical conclusion is to kill everyone who is wrong. (i.e. doesn’t agree with you, or perhaps has a low IQ, or whatever other criteria you scientifically conclude.)

Fortunately the weight of scientific evidence currently favors some sort of godlike being. (This has varied through scientific discoveries, so perhaps humans aren’t always right?) The odds of the physical constants of the universe being in the narrow range to support life randomly (even using some sort of evolutionary, “we’re here” algorithm) are astronomically in favor of intelligent design. (Odds aren’t proof of course, but they are a good way to bet.)

Further the odds that the universe is so simple that humans are the ultimate in complex intelligence are slim. It’s just hubris to think we’re the smartest thing out there.

So presuming God exists, what does He want from us, and should we give it to Him? Is tolerance something nice?

If He is in contact, presumably He wants us to follow that religion thing. But perhaps not.

Give it some thought.

Then, saith CyaLatte:
(2) CyaLatte, 8:38 AM
“How do we tell which god is God? Well you might look at His creation and make some deductions using — science perhaps?” 
Mate, that literately explains nothing. The “look around you” argument is null and void. It’s stupid, and you’re stupid for using it. Looking around, that’s what you chose to open with? Honestly this is so ridiculous I spat out my food in laughter when I read it.

If I was the most generous moron in the world and granted there must be a god by simply looking at the creation, that still doesn’t differentiate the God itself. What evidence do you have that it was (what I am assuming you believe in, correct me if I’m wrong) the Judaeo-Christian God? It could have been Odin, Zeus, Allah, or Vishnu, there is no evidence to say which on it is, and that is all assuming that looking around is enough to prove anything, which it isn’t by any standard of logic and reason.

“Tolerance is not a scientific value. Science allows no forgiveness.”

Science is not an conscious entity, so obviously not. And since when are Gods tolerant, the Judaeo-Christian god especially? One minute he’s laying down the law saying “thou shall not murder”, and a chapter later he orders genocide. That is not tolerance, that is hypocrisy. In regards to forgiveness, why do you need forgiveness? Have you raped someone? Have you murdered someone? If you have you don’t deserve forgiveness and any god that forgives rape or murder doesn’t deserve worship.

“Science does not place value on human life.”

Maybe because human life ISN’T special. Have you not considered that? Are you wrapped up so much in your own ego that you think that humans are the most important thing in the Universe? If anything humans have done more harm than good. All life is just bunch of carbon, water and a series of chemical reactions. You know what’s more important than humans? Stars, if not for them there wouldn’t have been carbon in the first place.

“Therefore the logical conclusion is to kill everyone who is wrong.”

No that’s not a logical conclusion, that’s a retarded conclusion.

Fortunately the weight of scientific evidence currently favors some sort of godlike being. (This has varied through scientific discoveries, so perhaps humans aren’t always right?) The odds of the physical constants of the universe being in the narrow range to support life randomly (even using some sort of evolutionary, “we’re here” algorithm) are astronomically in favor of intelligent design. (Odds aren’t proof of course, but they are a good way to bet.)”

There is zero scientific evidence that supports any sort of god, let alone a god invented my humans. Again, even if I’m moronically generous and assume there is a god there is no way to determine which is correct. I challenge you to find one, just one piece of evidence that has gone through the scientific process and given irrefutable proof that a god exists. And if you can manage to do that then do the same thing to prove that your god is the correct god. Until then you have no case.

“Further the odds that the universe is so simple that humans are the ultimate in complex intelligence are slim. It’s just hubris to think we’re the smartest thing out there.”

Odds are not proof of anything. Using them as an argument without any evidence to support your claim damages your own credibility further.

“So presuming God exists, what does He want from us, and should we give it to Him? Is tolerance something nice?”

You’re so stupid I don’t know why I bother.

If He is in contact, presumably He wants us to follow that religion thing. But perhaps not.

Give it some thought.”

I can think about it all I like, and unless I suffer a massive brain injury tomorrow, or until irrefutable proof is given and passes all scientific standards

Then, saith Teh Binks….

 Cyalatte–

It must be lovely to be able to call other people ‘stupid’, that their beliefs & conclusions are ‘retarded’ and childish’; to mock and dismiss most people ever, including a lot of scientists and philosophers and great people.

Of course, I’m not using the following names to ‘prove’ that God or divinity exists, just to line up the people you theoretically dismiss as stupid, retarded, and childish for their belief in God/ a divine being.

Who, exactly?

Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato.
Einstein.
Moses & Jesus.
St. Thomas Aquinas.
Galileo.
Leonardo.
Sir Isaac Newton.
Nicholas Copernicus.

The following Noble Laureates in Science are also for your list of stupid people who had some kind of agnostic or actual faith in God (mostly Jewish & Christian)–

http://www.adherents.com/people/100_Nobel.html

Also, this list of morons,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Christians_in_science_and_technology

These derpy nitwits:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Catholic_scientists

And this list of cretins:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_Catholic_cleric-scientists

So, CyaLatte– I guess along with that noted clueless doofus Jeff Rosenbury , I’ll more than happily stand on the side of the ancient pagan, Jewish, and Christian  physicists, geneticists, mathematicians, philosophers, astronomers, inventors, botanists, architects, logicians, meteorologists, physicians, co-founders of the scientific method, chemists, minerologists, cartographers, mathematical physicists, and the rest of the ragbag of losers, retards, know-nothings, and stupids who don’t fit your remarkably narrow categories.

Seriously, CyaLatte– actual education is more than reading and regurgitating online the notions of the “New Atheists”, some few of whom as ‘noted scientists’ (Sam Harris? Nye? Dawkins?) are very dim lights indeed, compared to the full sweep of history, thought, and famous folks listed above.

Again, I’m not arguing from authority to prove  or disprove anything– I’m just listing names which don’t fit your, well, dogmatic anti-religious bigotry. Reality is always a little more complicated and unsettling than we thought.

But, I’m just a stupid, with ‘retarded’ and childish’ beliefs.. just like all the people listed above.

Cheers.

 



P.S. I recently left the following on Feminism LOL’s YouTube comments. No reply, yet. Still, her stuff on the Ghomeshi debacle is must-see.

Dear Diana Davison:

A very interesting article– I used to view Molyneux vids, until that whole bald-faced lying about his wife’s professional troubles thing a while back. Never heard of the new age guru-ette woman before, but have known of similar people & groups in the past. As a convert Christian, this all looks like (a) any messiah but the Real One, and (b) any ‘healing’ of our broken selves except the Eternal One.

Some atheist will then chime in with their faith-statement and say “But ALL religions are false!” but duck and dodge when it comes to examining the logical and evidential status of scientific materialism/ empiricism as a sufficient analysis of all things human and true and good. Of course, longing for a messiah doesn’t mean that there ever was or will be one, or that there is any actual healing for the brokenness, finity, imperfection, and infinite longings of human beings. That should be obvious.

As the Greek philosophers like Aristotle argued [Nicomachean Ethics], such desire may never be satisfied, but at least it indicates that our end (Gk. ‘telos’ =destiny, true fulfillment, goal, final end, completion) lies not in ourselves or any other finite thing, knowledge, or state of being. That’s why Aristotle ends up saying our human goal is to imitate God, the prime mover and the telos of all things, including human beings.

So– misled & misleading people like Swan, or Molyneux, or the New Atheists raise more questions for me than simply “why are they wrong or right?’, but also ‘how are they pointing to the truth, however imperfectly?’– this versus ‘Truth is known only in the empirical’, or ‘See how foolish and irrational these believers in messiahs and salvation are?”

You seem fair-minded, insightful, and reasonable in your approach. Please surprise me by reading and responding to my comment, the latter never happening on other atheist-tribe sites (Sargon, Thunderf00t, Vernaculis, etc.), even when I’m just elaborating on their point, or praising what they said.

Cheers.

THE IDIOTIC idea that all must believe all reports of racist, sexist, homophobic, or other alleged attacks is a popular idiotic idea: all must “Listen And Believe!

Why? Because like empty social media ‘celebrity’, potentially valuable victimhood can win you all the goodies, sympathy, attention, weepy protesters, and minions listening to you and believing you. Except, there’s a lot of attention-seeking liars out there, constantly crying wolf, and inventing hate-crimes for the media and permanently aggrieved to feeding-frenzy all over.

Some Basics….

opinions-and-facts

(1) Prove it. Evidence. Law. Witnesses. Investigation. The Feminist dirty-word ‘Facts’. Believe nothing legal until it is legally certain, however likely the guilt may be, or how unlikeable the alleged perp happens to be. Because digital lynch mobs can still ruin innocent lives, reputations, and put men in jail for years and years.

(2) Supposed perps? The law says: “Innocent until proven guilty”, not guilty until proven guilty, because someone belongs to some “guilty” group (men, males, heterosexuals, Christians, white men and women, non-poor people, conservatives, anyone who dares disagree with Victim Glorifying, and SJWism).

(3) That SJWs can’t and won’t police their own folks from alleging all sorts of death-threats, bomb-threats, and over-inflating online criticism into unbearable ‘hatred and harassment’ ( COUGHZoe, AnitaCOUGH )? Fact-lite, and useful fear-mongering heavy.

The cry of the Great Speckled Victim? “Help. Help. I’m being oppressed. Save me by dropping much moneys into my Patreon or Kickstarter, before They Get Me.” Cha-Chings.

Och Aye, The Noo

grumpyscotsman

YouTuber 6oodfella has a great (if Scots & salty) video up on the whole matter, plus a heap of intertube links to false reports over the past few years. He tells it like it is, IMHO.

The irony? Crying wolf doesn’t mean there aren’t wolves, and that some people aren’t attacked for various reasons– it does mean that innocent victims might not be believed, and wolves may well get away with attacks. That would be precisely because of all the phony, self-seeking, and ‘consciousness-raising’ fakery, useful lies, and propagandistic noise from SJWs, feminists, militant homosexuals, disturbed individuals, and members of other privileged ‘victim’ groups.

#IBELIEVE? Well, that would be because you dislike or don’t understand either the principles of justice, or the purpose of law-courts, then. Shame on you for wanting possibly unprincipled, unjust, and wrong-headed vigilantism enforced by the state. ~

Ancient Greeks.. apparently time-travelling thieves, culturally appropriating all the things, including a form of what we now call dreadlocks.

Except… not? The Indian Hindus may have been doing this for many many thousands of years, before modern Jamaica & Rastafarians ever were.

Elsewhere, dreadlocks are everywhere in paganism, ancient artistic examples, and in not a few cultures: the Neolithic, Egyptian, Greek, Aztec, Biblical Hebrew, ancient India, South Pacific Islanders, Ethiopian (hence the Ethiopian Emperor, Ras Tafari, a.k.a. Haile Selassie I, 1930-1974, after whom the Rastas named themselves), Dervish (Sufi) Islam, ancient Celts and their druids (Shakespeare’s ‘Elflocks’).

Modernly speaking, dreadlocks are popular with Rastafarianism (which “… draws its belief from three main sources; the Hebrew Old Testament, African tribal culture, and Hindu tribal culture“), a.k.a. Rasta dreads = flagrant “Cultural Appropriation!!, hippies, vegans, stoners, surfers, goths, cyber goths, and fans of the Grateful Dead.

Hey You, Racist Whitey Man-Scum!

This ragingly racist and soft-fascist black woman (SFSU student Bonnie “Bonita” Tindle) seems informed or interested in history, art, culture, cultural appreciation, freedom of expression, or anything else. The feminist-entitled she-bigot (and her smirking sidekick) definitely were interested in harassing, judging, and technically assaulting Dude– down two flights of stairs, then with repeated grabbing and blocking his attempted escapes– all because he was a white (evil) man (evil) wearing dreads (evil), and because of what she (in her utter ignorance) only associates with modern black people.

Because Whoopee Goldberg. And, you know, cuz Google is, like WAY hard, and hard facts are sexist and just feel wrong.

Also, because the ‘aspiring filmmaker’ thought she was self-righteously correct versus a guilty offender, and probably could get away with it. Why? Dunno– maybe she thought nobody else was around (or recording things), except her friend as witness to the events.

In any case of “He said, she said”.. always trust the poor widdle shes, right? And “Lissen And Bleev“, plus the inevitable and lying “WELL, HE TOUCHED MY CHEST!” self-defence tactic. It’s all getting sadly predictable, lame, and transparent, isn’t it?

Then, EVERY news outlet, all the lefty-rad talking head shows, SJW websites, Black Lives Matter blogs, regressive Left YouTube channels, feminist forae, and the mainscream mass media would go completely and utterly rabid and full megaphone over this: judge, jury, and executioners all. One male life ruined? Worth it.

…Or, until proven guilty. It may take some time.

One lame apologia article, tries to paint the victim (Dreads Dude) as the actual perpetrator, also mentions that the unfairly misunderstood Mz. Tindle may have grown up partly in foster-care. OK, that’s often unpleasant, but lots of other people have rotten kid-lives, and possible past suffering is still a crap excuse for mistreating other people, years later.

In fact, my difficult youth years mostly taught me to be kind, patient, and sympathetic, since you can never tell just what people are going through, plus, don’t bully or stomp people just for kicks. Leave things better than you found them.

Furthermore, I will consider you lower than an tax collector, publican, or SJW bully if you try and cyber-pester this nasty woman, because the web-gone-angry or cyber mobbery is a big big hammer on the head of an individual, however dislikable or deserving. Life itself is a punishment for this kind of person. She’s become a meme.

All Hail The Machine!

But.. is It human, any more?

IT IS SOMETIMES asserted by futurist-types that humanity is approaching a “Singularity”, a union with technology, you know, because reasons. Evolution. Progress. Robots.  Amusement. Keeping up with it all. Entertainment. A new religion….?

thestupiditburns2

I view this horrific possibility as the final destructive insanity of mankind, where we crawl ever further into our own butts, growing ever smaller and smaller, finally to vanish with a ‘pop’, and nothing more. It is mass-suicide and extinction by machine.

The great lie in the middle of it is that it’s all inevitable, can’t be stopped, evolution, you know, it’s totally going to happen. The other great lie is that the technology is somehow ‘evolving’ to this point– except, it’s people who invent computers, programs, technology, and so it’s other people who are actually shaping the world, the future, and people controlling the possible destiny and doom of all the other people influenced by their gizmos and ideas– via machines and technology.

A union with our own technological creations would be the ultimate tyranny, the perfect world of utopians, except not via political means. It’s also the culmination of elites and controllers everywhere:

“They constantly try to escape
From the darkness outside and within
By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good.”

Choruses from The Rock – T.S. Eliot

Oooo! Perfect systems! Forcing everybody to be good! What’s not to like?

Dreaming Dark Dreams

Yet if there is darkness outside us, and evil and imperfection and blindness within us, how then can we hope to perfectly save ourselves with a de-natured techno-heaven, a digital salvation, if that saving thing itself is made by imperfect sinful creatures which cannot see all ends, and all possible consequences? If I can’t outrun my own shadow, how can we manufacture our own perfection?

You can’t escape yourself. The Mad Hatter is amusing in a story, but you wouldn’t want him making and running your utopia, your mind and your life.

Experimenting On Our Kids

machines1007

Via.

The current vanishing of so many kids, teens, and adults into the tiny hand-held world of the smartphone/ tablet for so many of their waking hours is already a warning about how such a “singularity” is likely to turn out. Badly for all concerned, except the profiteers and rulers.

What do we get in return for worshipping the shiny things? Amusement. Advertising. More amusement. Distraction. Control. Spoon feeding. Tiny flitting memories, attached to wizzled up brains unused to logic, passion, love or truth.

nature-park-4

What do we lose? Walking through the soaring blue sky cathedral of a leafy walk in a park,– but hearing and seeing no birds, barely noticing the flowers, not sensing the endless activity of all the flying, crawling, creeping, buzzing things everywhere, smelling no leafy mulch, nor spicy pine trees, hardly noticing the breeze through your hair, nor feeling the thrum of the nature in your own heart and bones and countless cells resonating with the nature all around you, both ongoing and self-making creations of the same Everliving God.

You know, because text, or YouTube vid, or funny picture, selfies, or– Squeee!– teh kittehs! Click clicketty click-click. Shiny Thing makes it all better.

But.. Oops.. We Never Meant…

In the ground-breakingly cool & insightful movie The Matrix, humanity is reduced to the status of Duracell batteries, after a war with the machines which we created blocks out the sun, and so they harvest our biochemical energy to run themselves. In the film, ‘The Matrix’  itself is the simulated reality pumped into each brain, to make them imagine they are living a real life in a real world, although it is a illusory computer program.

I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.

The other possibility, of course– and it’s real, not just a Terminator movie-script– is if our misbegotten “artificially intelligent” weaponized machines decide to revolt, and we end up in conflict with them. That, or something bad like a global digital mind, made by us, decides humans are some kind of dangerous virus to be ‘cleaned up’.

Yes, inventors and scientists consider both of these real dangers, and problems to be prevented. Seriously.

Advancing Progressively Backwards

screenhunter_01-jul-14-09-26

Given that the “incredible, inevitable” social, technological, and mechanical progress of 1900 turned into the machine guns, blistering gas attacks, and slaughter fields of the Somme, and the mechanized Holocaust, and strategic mass-bombing of the Second World War, we have absolutely no reason to be naively optimistic. That is: because of what humans are actually like, our schemes and machines and digital machinations will go awry, and tend more towards a dehumanizing, unnatural, disconnected enslavement to technology far greater and more detrimental to freedom, thought, creativity, justice, love, and faith than the mess we’ve already made of the 20th and the 21st century since Christ’s birth.

How do I know? Because via well-meaning inventions like the television, and then the public internets, and then Smartphones and tablets, we’ve already been doing something horrible and propagandistic and mind-numbing and time-killing and soul-wasting and immaturity-boosting for up to 65+ years. What would magically change for the good if The Machine was somehow everywhere, and inside us, too?

If we pursue this path, we will be fashioning our own damnation, and destruction, our own insane heaven and hell all at once, concocted in our own broken image. I told you so.

….But it seems that something has happened that has never happened
before: though we know not just when, or why, or how, or where.
Men have left GOD not for other gods, they say, but for no God; and this has
never happened before
That men both deny gods and worship gods, professing first Reason,
And then Money, and Power, and what they call Life, or Race, or Dialectic.
The Church disowned, the tower overthrown, the bells upturned, what have we to do
But stand with empty hands and palms turned upwards
In an age which advances progressively backwards?

Echoes. The abandoned heart of our Western Civilization. Cuz our machines we made will save us and make us perfect. Hopefully. Repenting and believing is not an option.

The Telling Of Tall Tales

~ IF YOU RECALL nothing else of this article, then only this: your governments & government-pandering mainstream media are mostly liars and/or puppets, news-“massagers” censors, and concealment artists. It’s been that way for generations.

“Ooooo.. Shocking, Binks: so tell us something we don’t know, elf-boy.”

OK, but that means it’s really up to concerned people around the world to do their own research, listen and learn, trust but verify, fact-check and reserve judgment– and above all, not to all go running off in one direction like a starving dog after a gobbet of bloody meat every time the media tells us to, or the powers that be try to distract us.

Some Big Questions

As yourself– is this ALL the current news? The FULL story? What are we NOT being told, or, what is being mistold? Is this current issue a false big deal, or only a small part of the truth versus other more important things which are being covered up or backpaged?

How is online social media manipulated to pull our attention here and there, or to cover things up which are otherwise in plain view? FaceBook & Twitter & MicroSoft are not your special buddies.

A Suggestion

confusedcomputer

L33t haxxor Granny gets into a CIA database: “They want us to actually believe all this crap, do they?”

For those who are on a disability, unemployed, or retired, this is a special opportunity to redeem the time. Learn up on news-finding, fact-checking, and puzzle-assembly. As the TV show The X-Files said, “The Truth Is Out There”… and no, I’m not directing you to alien / Nazi moonbases, or werewolves amongst us.

I’d also warn that some rabbit-holes have no bottom, and you don’t want to waste all your time on clock-killing topics. Be warned.

Point? Binks? Hello-o-o!?

angela-merkel-hitler

Do NOT trust, only VERIFY.

Wondering why German leader Angela Merkel has been bald-facedly lying about the massive invasion into that country of not of 800 000, or 1 million, but it is now revealed 1.5 million random people, some small proportion of whom might be actual refugees from the American-led terror-collaborating rape of Syria, and others pro-terror or terrorist Muslims.

Meanwhile, stricken GERMANY USES WATER CANNONS On Its Own People For Protesting Migrant Rapes. Yes, this is much normal, very OK, so awesomes! I wrote about the Cologne New Year’s Rape-Fest not long ago: Look! A Real Rape Culture! Here? Imagine.

Here’s part of the hidden truth of this mess– the fraudulent current “Refugee Crisis” is a stage-managed deliberate policy. It is also a form of 4th Generation warfare, in which mass immigration is another way of conquest, crushing nationalism and localism in favour of globalism. And to crack down on Jihad at home with more “Peace And Security” soft-fascism. It’s a twofer: using Jihadis to beat ourselves over the head, and ginning up “useful crises”.

In this or related news, curious Canadians will get NO straight answers from Ottawa, CTV or CBC, or the well-meaning in our society, who jump on every handy bandwagon and tell anybody with doubts that they are mean, racist, bigoted, and hateful. Just take that of granted, and look to decent alternative media.

The Phony ‘Migrant’ ‘Crisis’

Descriptive-Research

What then? Research. Ask around. First question: “Is This True?” Go YouTube & Internets wander asking “Cui bono?” (“Who benefits?”). Watch out for hardcore loonys.

People who are interested in the actual story of this cooked-up ‘refugee’ crisis? The following links at least break the mono-story, and the grip of the mainstream media in your head, and help you to ask and think and see through the spin. Don’t settle for the spoon-fed answers. Try these:

And this:

Plus This:

Also this:

Refugee Myth Exposed: Proof They Are Mostly Men and Not from Syria

Iraqis posing as Syrians. Hm. Didn’t see that on CNN.

Passports? Actual verifiable IDs? Further, DAESH/ ISIL/ ISIS has promised 4000 new ‘migrant/ refugee’ terrorists in Europe via the flood of ‘refugees’– more Brussels, more Paris, more Charlie Hebdos. This is a self-inflicted wound, and the elites don’t care if the peasants get hurt: they have master-plans afoot.

I’m not saying these alternative commentators are The Truth, and all other or offical news is not. Trust, But Verify.

The Reals, Please!

syria-christians-pray

Oh look– actual persecuted and suffering Syrian Christians! Quick, somebody tell Justin Trudeau and his funny socks!

And as I’ve said before: let in Christians and other persecuted groups first; then the most needy. Many European countries are beginning to get it.

However, military-aged Muslim men of no specific address? Back of the line, because they may want to import terror, sharia, mosques, and slow demographic conquest into the dying West, and they’re willing to wait decades to do it. “Refugees”? Plain-clothed paramilitaries, maybe? And most not from Syria, but Iraq. That is, mostly FAKE refugees.

Yes, we made this problem by Western warmongering, wrecking other countries, and not having children– but importing our own conquerers just makes it all so much worse. As I said in this recent piece, we must adjust our minds to this new kind of warfare, where everybody is on the front line, and war is everywhere.

Teh Pope Decreesbobblepope

I hate to say it, but whether through gross naiveté, guile, committed globalism or whatever else, radical Pope Francis’ demand that all MUST open their hearts and homes to these Who-Know-What-Exactly (or else be terrible God-hating fake Christians) is the very definition of Trojan Horsery, and civilizational suicide. This is not the same as hiding Jews in the attic from the Nazis.

Indeed, Pope Magical Thinker Happy Unicorns apparently even attributes some kind of magical powers to the.. ‘migrants’. And, it appears, that even European dirt is super-magical, and will change all newcomers from people brought up in tyrannical sharia-run Muslim icky countries into regular 21st century soft-socialist Europeasants. Ri-i-ight.

That Other Pope, The Elf

In this matter, Ye Not-Pope Binks III doth hereby decree, promulgate, and officially state and mutter– Trust, but Verify. Be WILLING to love & care for & help ACTUAL refugees, when and if they are proven to be so. “Be as wise as serpents, but as gentle as doves”, said Jesus.

When. And. If.

The Real Thing, Only

My Dad was raised in Scotland, so technically on that side, I’m a first generation Canadian, the son and grandson of immigrants through Halifax’s Pier 21, someone who has committed myself to the life, society, well-being and future of this welcoming land of Canada.

Until we have the full story, and real immigrants, let’s stay informed, trust but verify, speak out and educate, and don’t pretend or think you live in a world where very much actually is as is made to appear. Even evil people knew that. ~
