A Threat To Our Democracy

No posting, 4/30/21-5/2/21

I will not be posting Friday, April 30, through Sunday, May 2. Posting will resume Monday, May 3.

No posts today.

I’ve been pressed for time recently. Today, and probably tomorrow and the next day, I will not be posting articles. Rather, I will be using the time I would normally spend gathering articles in the morning and posting in the evening writing an article about the Derek Chauvin verdict. There are moments that catch the essence of their age and the verdict does just that with ours. Check back over the next few days; I’m not sure how long this will take. I thank you for your patience and I hope I reward it.

US Criticized For Withdrawing Troops From Afghanistan While Just 50 Years From Victory

From The Babylon Bee:

The Greatest Game, by Jeff Booth

This article will stretch your brain a bit, but can’t we all use some mental exercise? From Jeff Booth at medium.com:

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete”

Buckminster Fuller

Breakthroughs, that step-change our lives for the better, invariably come from something that most people couldn’t see. Our belief of how the world should exist and operate is shaped from looking backwards, not forward, so it makes sense that new paradigms that change everything — face resistance in our minds. Because most people don’t see them, breaking through an existing paradigm needs to provide enough compelling value for users to disrupt an old paradigm. Apple’s iPhone for instance, didn’t copy the market leader, Research in Motion’s Blackberry design of needing a keyboard or selling to businesses who required RIM’s security. It created a digital interface when that wasn’t ‘needed’ and created an entirely new platform that changed the industry as a result. Along the way, the Blackberry died, unable to compete with the value for users, that was now increasing exponentially on Apple’s platform.

That process describes “Creative Destruction” a paradoxical term first coined by Joseph Schumpeter in 1942 to describe how Capitalism works in a “free market.” Entrepreneurs innovate and “create” value for society — and that value gained by society also often “destroys” the former monopoly power. That process and its importance is at the centre of how all modern economies have evolved and given rise to most of the benefits to society we take for granted today. New winners become so valuable that they disrupt existing market power or structures. It is all driven from a near-constant flow of innovative entrepreneurs with bold ideas and the capital backing them that go up against the status quo and are only successful, “if’’ they create value for society.

The Absurdity of What “They” Want You to Believe

The “Unvaccinated” Question, by CJ Hopkins

Maybe they should just ship all of us who won’t get vaccinated to death camps and be done with it. From CJ Hopkins at off-guardian.org:

So, the New Normals are discussing the Unvaccinated Question. What is to be done with us? No, not those who haven’t been “vaccinated” yet. Us. The “Covidiots.” The “Covid deniers.” The “science deniers.” The “reality deniers.” Those who refuse to get “vaccinated,” ever.

There is no place for us in New Normal society. The New Normals know this and so do we. To them, we are a suspicious, alien tribe of people. We do not share their ideological beliefs. We do not perform their loyalty rituals, or we do so only grudgingly, because they force us to do so.

We traffic in arcane “conspiracy theories,” like “pre-March-2020 science,” “natural herd immunity,” “population-adjusted death rates,” “Sweden,” “Florida,” and other heresies.

They do not trust us. We are strangers among them. They suspect we feel superior to them. They believe we are conspiring against them, that we want to deceive them, confuse them, cheat them, pervert their culture, abuse their children, contaminate their precious bodily fluids, and perpetrate God knows what other horrors.

So they are discussing the need to segregate us, how to segregate us, when to segregate us, in order to protect society from us. In their eyes, we are no more than criminals, or, worse, a plague, an infestation.

In the words of someone (I can’t quite recall who), “getting rid of the Unvaccinated is not a question of ideology. It is a question of cleanliness,” or something like that. (I’ll have to hunt down and fact-check that quote. I might have taken it out of context.)
