Riding on the coattails without really understanding

6 Sep , 2017 Uncategorized

I must apologize for translating an article. In making a translation, I interpret. In interpreting I subject the article to subjectivity. But I do nonetheless, with this disclaimer, and I urgently invite you to disagree with me and my lousy translation. The Beatles were most certainly blissfully ignorant of a concept such as Transhumanism – […]

America is sick. It’s pretty obvious to the world and has been for some time. America has cancer. It is a cancer of special interests, and those special interests are white. You can call it the Military Industrial Complex, Big Oil, the Beltwey, Shills, The Two Party Political Stranglehold, The Deep State – but at […]

The Bitter Pill Problem

7 Aug , 2017 Uncategorized

In modern policy and futurological analysis there is an increasing contamination by ideology, which right now manifests as denialism. This is now one of the most corrosive problems in western modernism. Of course denialism has always been a problem, but increasingly it has become a mindset in so many people that it destroys dialogue, problem-solving […]

Pressing the archival switch

There are now arguments to conclude that humanity will enter a terminal decline, or worse, go extinct somewhere this century. Yes it is terribly difficult to destroy the species (there may be a few straggling survivors in deep mountain survival complexes even in the worst case scenario for centuries) but we must conclude that most […]

Dealing with a US president that’s going cold turkey of cocaine

10 Jan , 2017 Uncategorized

Let’s face the facts – soon to be president Donald J. Trump is heavily addicted to cocaine. This is no longer merely speculative, it’s a near certainty. We can already see the signs he has sharply decreased his intake, as he is visibly bloating more every day. Trump has gone from overweight and pudgy to […]

Stop fucking whining about “Political Correctness”

18 Nov , 2016 Uncategorized

I am through with people whining about “safe spaces” and “politicical correctness”. I am through with people whining that “freedom of speech” is under threat by “libruls”. Maybe there are some autistic types on some few US universities that have reached the breaking point in terms of being attacked by extreme right wingers, oligarchist neoliberals, […]

So where will you live in 2100?

How to get rid of Donald J. Trump

14 Nov , 2016 Uncategorized

We can safely state that Trump is positioning himself to cause instability. His climate policies, his stance of detente towards the middle east and continued “operation iraqi liberation”, his investment in look at the 911 attacks and aftermath and now the appointment of Steve Bannon – there is a point where Trump become subject to […]

Not really

7 Nov , 2016 Uncategorized

The elites will force everyone to work – the handicapped, women, immigrants, refugees, mental patients, senior citizens, the young, middle classes, lower classes – everyone. This while the portion of ‘fungible’ or “work that’s worth actual money” work rapidly decrease. Politicians will keep doing the same thing over and over, and it’ll get worse and […]

Let’s hope we are in Peak Denial

17 Aug , 2016 Uncategorized

The last time humanity went off the deep end (or at least – western civilization did) was at the end of the Roman era an signified the Dark Ages. While some deny the Dark Ages were not in any way particularly bad. Also, it may not be the ebb and flow of human civilization that […]

I have long worried about ideology, and ideology being consistent. It is very difficult to come up with a position regarding fellow human beings that takes most philosophical and political dilemma’s in to account. So I came up with a particular way to look at the world, mostly as an answer to Libertarianism, i.e. Planetism. […]
