But we are taught democracy, capitalism and liberal civil/women's rights together comprise "freedom," and that anything but freedom is "bad." So what can we do? We shrug and watch the ongoing travesty, certain we cannot with these hands and these minds do anything to reverse the course toward total destruction. After all, this path to death runs parallel with "progress" and "freedom," which are bringing us an enlightened time, free of wars and want -- or is that too illusion? We wonder, and do nothing. There is nothing we can do ...or is there?

Environmentalism Contra Democracy

We can't have our cake and eat it, even if liberalism insists otherwise.

Better consumers is right. I believe much of the push for third world immigration is to ensure a large consumer base that is not at all discriminatory with what they purchase. They prefer cheap, abundant and quick gratification, quality production and environment be damned and stay oblivious to the consequences of putting unscrupulous sellers into power with the mass wealth transfer.

Consumer and environmental education has no effect unless you have people who can absorb the information and care about the results. To date, after decades of such education availability, this is only a tiny minority. It is clear by now that liberalism is incapable of making any large scale improvements and that populations generally need to be coerced into not destroying or culled by war so the impact of their numbers is reduced.

We need to get a handle on environmental carrying capacity for people in subsistence and affluent societies. Give living spaces in various ecologies occupancy limits like a theater has a maximum occupancy as designated by a fire marshal.

Other than for emergency rescue, military, or diplomatic action, there is no need whatsoever for rapid transit. Bulk goods can be hauled using dirigibles or by sea.

Get rid of lawns and cars, exotic pet shops and plant nurseries. Keep local flora and fauna local. Apply this principle to human populations. Start to see humans as just another organism in a biosphere we tend to as stewards, rather than affording them limitless liberties based on nothing but their own exemption and exception from nature delusions.

All technology is a weapon pointed at nature. Use only as needed rather than proliferate as desired. Channel desires into art, combat and cultural pursuits instead.

Did I just ban liberalism with the above recommendations? Why yes, yes I did!

The surface problem is that capitalism is an artificial form of natural selection (culture) and people fear struggle of any sort. The 2-5% best rocket to the top leaving the rest struggling to some extent.

The hidden problem is the type of traits this artificial natural selection culture says are favorable. Narcissism, solipsism, psychopathy, short-term thinking and avarice have all made their appearance. In other words, according to the culture of our time, having these traits helps our chances of success in life. In contrast, prior cultures would encourage piety, fidelity, chivalry, planning ahead, and bravery.

By escapism I mean making it into a linear horror entertainment product squarely aimed for the public that doesn't want to engage in the scary ideas - kind of things such as "brutal death metal" which from Cannibal Corpse onwards has sought to make death metal into something where the horror and agony is a matter of aesthetics (endless recombinations of murder and death happening randomly as in the hands of a screenwriter that needs to invent scenes for Friday the 13th part 2627), not content (all of it is just a jumble of words, it has no story, teaching or direction underneath). It's "illustration" for a rock/jazz/metal jam session, not mythology or spirituality or sacralization of death.

This is true. They give us only half the story because they want to make it accessible and empower with deranged fantasy what are in reality lifelong weaklings. A victim that mysteriously, somehow comes into our power so that we may engage in taboo acts with it? Juvenile.

The missing half of the violent epic is the harrowing side: hunting the fiersome Grendel, a mighty bear that could rend us asunder if we aren't wary, stalking a godly dragon or elusive vampire. This other half of the experience is missing. It requires something from us such as valor, heroism, enduring hardship, even insatiable greed to steal a dragon's treasure, or the haughty pride of Beowulf.

Like Slipknot, CC is a better fit for underconfident fatboys with a chip on their shoulders, who are as yet untested in life and probably hopelessly unfit anyways.

The topics got too explicitly far right, far left or libertarian anarchist because people for whatever reason seek an identity pattern to interface with underlying truths. If that layer could be removed, which isn't easy, the discussions would improve.

Why aren't they worried about the impact of what they're doing? Why do they think America is so strong it can take endless abuse?

I think I know part of the answer. It is that they've never seen things go dark. They came of age during the great abundance, circa 1980-2008 (or 1950-2008, take your pick), and they don't have the habit of worry. They talk about their "concerns"—they're big on that word. But they're not really concerned. They think America is the goose that lays the golden egg. Why not? She laid it in their laps. She laid it in grandpa's lap.

They don't feel anxious, because they never had anything to be anxious about. They grew up in an America surrounded by phrases—"strongest nation in the world," "indispensable nation," "unipolar power," "highest standard of living"—and are not bright enough, or serious enough, to imagine that they can damage that, hurt it, even fatally.

I met some old Hungarian dude with an Old World outlook way back when. He used to call short-sighted, selfish Americans who run things peasants.

Welcome to modernity: we deal in effects, not causes, and means, not ends, because effects/means are what YOU experience.

Ending destructive causes makes the effects disappear. When the effects disappear, the profit and popularity of the numerous effects-fighters ends. There's a motive. What you experience is how it is marketed.

I believe it is mostly a lot of industry funded media hype to get people to line up to buy an extra vaccination this year. If they can train the panicky herd to see any molehill as a mountain, they've pretty much successfully forged invisible slaver's chains for the gullible. Yeah, the problem is that not nearly enough of this gullible, fearful and stupid gene expression is dying off.

Unfortunately the invisible chains won't be used for eugenics purposes for betterment, but to milk the cattle perpetually. So, the libertarian anti- NWO types are basically right, but for the worst reasons. Maybe some of the depopulation, pro-ecology globalists should take the reigns here.

It seems to me that a distant high king would serve the exact role of Strong Government without locally micromanaging. Barons or counts could have infrastructure authority over rural and urban sections respectively. Magistrates handle hard case broken animal people in our midst. There is so much mama drama over what we call things, but really it is only the arrangement and processing that needs tightening up.

I've been able to buy a mobo and RAM from local shops and they make a deal giving the OS at OEM rates. It helps to throw some business at small businesses. The prices for components that are some months old are comparable or only slightly higher than an average online cost.

Really the only power ever was the hard heart of a killer. Gold is just a couple of abstract layers removed from the mercenary/policeman/soldier/assassin paid with it.
