Interzone / Tell me about your education.
« on: April 20, 2014, 06:11:33 AM »
Some of you characters are still in the education system, or not so long out of it.
From what I am coming to understand, education nowadays is more about indoctrination than about education.

I am running into more and more young people, especially on forums, that seem completely unable to learn anything that they don't already know.
There is this whole thing now, focusing upon proof for every single word, being demanded, before consideration of the message even takes place.
What is this? What's going on?

People tell me politics is a big subject in schools. Biased leftwards, from what I can see.
It seems generally unpopular, but from the evidence, it warps kids anyway, into equality-obsessed machines that become enraged at anyone who mentions things they know nothing about. What they really do know about, is being so utterly self-centered that it boggles the mind.

Is there truth in this? Can anyone shed light?

Interzone / You are your grievance.
« on: April 19, 2014, 04:52:36 PM »
There are so many special-interest groups these days, that must - by law - be specially catered-to, that it gets to be something of a minefield for the rest of us.

Such groups of individuals have one thing in common: They all demand special treatment.
But how are the rest of us supposed to know who they are, in order to afford them this special treatment? By the time one finds out they are members of a special protected group, it may already be too late.

It would, perhaps, be a good idea to have such individuals tattooed on their foreheads with whatever specific grievance it is that must be taken into account by everybody else.
That way, roving gangs of normal people would know to avoid them, altogether, lest they become criminals without realizing it.

This way, there would be a price, of sorts, to pay, for that special protection afforded by law, while at the same time affording protection to the innocent who may otherwise fall foul of legislation.

Not a bad idea. You'd see people with tattoos proclaiming things like:
Gay. Muslim. New Age. Goth. Religious Nut. Disabled. Punk. Short. Old. Feminist. Ethnic. Nutcase. Victim.

That way, they would be safe from everybody else, while everybody else would be safe from them. Nobody would be forced to wear one of these tattoos, but if one elected not to, then they would be unable to later claim that they were victims of a hate crime.

Sorry old boy. Rule infringement gets you banned. Take a week off and think about it.

High time, too. Everybody's dying from anti-depressant poisoning.

What a great experience. I've never seen you so communicative :)
Cops have really messed me up over the years.
Then again, I wasn't always Moses.

I've had a shoulder problem my whole adult life, that started with a cop twisting my arm, because I said: "Why?"
Shit happens. There sometimes doesn't need to be a reason.

There are a good many things you don't detect.
Here's one:
You don't detect that I mean what I say.
You still owe me an apology.

Lol :) That was a bit harsh, man. But oh-so-true.

DL: You are right. I have many crazy stories of being harassed by cops. And others. But who needs more crow stories, anyway? I have more important things to discuss, now.

Colourful story. I have a clear picture of the whole thing.
But I gotta say: if you're looking for sympathy, you came to the wrong place.
One day you'll look back on it and laugh. The stuff you do, before you know better.

I've always thought the term "progressive" was a complete inversion of what it actually is.
I have no idea what caused so many people to become so completely inverted.
Probably I was elsewhere, when it happened, as I was for many years, trying to escape the lunacy that preceded the full-scale inversion. On the run from something I have never been able to understand.
The thing about escaping, though, is that once you've done it, you can never go back.
Ever.

I laugh hysterically, sometimes. I just can't stop.
I entered a cafe, some years ago, in the gulf islands, where I live, and asked the waitress if she had any cake.
"We have some space cake", she said.
I looked at her, wondering what space cake was. Maybe the kind of cake astronauts take into space with them. Dehydrated, perhaps, or in a tube. Maybe it had those tiny coloured candy bits all over it...
"What's a space cake?"
She looked at me, wondering what I was.
"It's got spaces in it", she said.
I started to giggle a bit. I tried to imagine a cake with spaces in it. What? Like a swiss cheese?
No matter how hard I tried, I was unable to picture it. I had to try some, if only to find out.
"I'll have a slice of that, then, and some coffee, please".
She waddled off, while I amused myself with imagining what it might turn out to be.
She returned with an extraordinarily ordinary-looking slice of cake. No coloured bits. No holes.
I took a bite.
Then the laughing started, in earnest.
She seemed quite upset as I shook and guffawed, almost falling off my chair.
I tried to explain it to her, but was laughing too much to do so.

She was from Newfoundland, it turned out.
Her accent had sounded like she was saying 'space cake', when in fact, she had been saying:
Spice cake.

Interzone / Re: A helm unerring for the rule of life.

Our ancestors were curious creatures. They lived in what our society now condemns to oblivion: reality itself.

It is entirely possible, and reasonable, to do this, if one has no awareness of what reality is.
How such a thing can be is difficult to imagine, if one recognizes reality.
But what if one doesn't?
Is there a means by which it can be made visible to those unable to see it?

This is core conservatism. And as such, required-reading.
Crows live like this, as does every other natural creature.
How natural is a human? How close to this ideal would be a good benchmark.

This really is a great thread. It makes me smile just by being here :)
How happy to dispose of crazy intellect, and just live.

Strangely, I make a point of rarely smiling when I am around local people.
This is because so many of them wear a fixed not-smile, permanently pasted to their faces, while they go around gossiping, left-wing-activating, and backstabbing each other.
Their not-smiles have nothing at all to do with humour, but more to do with displaying their imaginary superiority and faux-spirituality to each other.
I don't really know why they do it, but they do it all the time. It has nothing to do with humour or fun.

When at home with my wife, however, we laugh and joke all the time. Like two kids in a sandpit.
It's like being in another world.
