Doth much learning make thee mad? [4]

Last episode for now.

6.  Prince William, mistaught at school, sitting duck for Hal and Megs think:

Ahem, who, by the way, pays these millions – is it from Wills’s personal bank account?  Oh, and this one:

Extinction Rebellion Founder Confirms That Global Warming Is Voodoo Science


7. Defining oneself out of existence:

Just days ago, Sputnik reported on the fact that almost half of the members of the Communist Party in Malmö, Sweden, are resigning. They plan to establish a new workers’ party that no longer features multiculturalism, LGBT interests, and climate change as key policy goals. Nils Littorin, one of the defectors, told a local newspaper that today’s Left has become part of the elite and has come to “dismiss the views of the working class as alien and problematic.” Littorin suggested that the Left “is going through a prolonged identity crisis” and that his group, instead, intends to stick to the original values, such as class politics.

Don’t blame em – no self-respecting Trot is going to have much truck with degenerate middle-class kids’ perversions.

Chuckles:

Very much happening here, and the Dem votes swinging to Repubs and Trump are a symptom of the same thing perhaps? All very much a symptom of the midwit lefty academics hijacking the movement and moving it ‘upmarket’. Utter catastrophe, same as everything else they do.

8. The fundamental reason Them can call time on one’s standing:

My basic orientation may be different from the usual discussions of Positive Money. I focus on how most money created by banks takes the form of debt, and how its character differs from public banking and money creation. The difference goes beyond the character of money itself. At issue is the purpose for which credit is created. Commercial bank lending tens to push up asset-prices for real estate and financial securities, not to expand the “real” economy. The latter is what public credit and money creation should be for.

But it doesn’t stop with the creation of debt, does it, it requires the shutting down of all viable alternatives and the creation of “concessions”.

With an economy oriented to individuals staying in the black, home and vehicle costing a certain fraction of annual gross, or deregulation of buying and selling, or with the ability to hunt game and till the ground, control does not exist.

Monopoly – is that capitalism or is it communism?

9. Another way independence is lost is in health. Once put a person on Big Pharma’s list and mete out barely the required amount monthly – there’s your means of control. Just how far to sea can I get on my boat before I die, once the supply is cut off?

10. Overton:

Heaven forbid anyone appear too extreme. Our rulers keep discourse safely within the Overton window by allowing debate about the details of what the government does or doesn’t do. However, those who question the necessity of particular government agencies or programs, or government in general, are beyond-the-pale extremists and cast into the Abyss of the Unacceptable, one zip code over from the Abyss of the Deplorable.

The series has been about “doth much learning make thee mad” and its extension – “doth this learning enable thee to alter your course once you know” … ?

Matthew 6:24-25:

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

But:

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness,; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

[H/T Chuckles and haiku]

    As to 9, bang on! I have to take a couple of different pills due to my misspent youth or something, cant do without them but only get 28 days worth at a time now, whereas it used to be 3 months! When I enquired, I was told it was the new policy to prevent waste, this for pills I have to take every day, forever!
