TECHNOCRACY: Technocrat!

Many might think that my writing on technocracy and especially technocrats, places me in the category as the Luddites. Although I am sympathetic to the originals (1811-1816), and their pleas against the establishment about the use of machines as, "[...] a fraudulent and deceitful manner” to get around standard labour practices." My case is that technology should be at the absolute service of mankind, and just because we can do a thing, does not ethically mean we should do that thing. Playing god with genetics is something that should be left alone. And the need by so many billionaires to control the planet and the population of the planet, along with the resources and the very natural forces of the planet via technology, science and chemistry is beyond the realm of 'in the service of man'. Modern technocrats are self-appointed god-like figures who place themselves and all of us who share the planet with them in jeopardy of extinction and collapse. Their technologies are not helping the planet but are in fact destroying it.

CORONAVIRUS: And the reality manufacturing machine — Part 2

...Air particles of miasmata, small pollutants that gaining access to a healthy body brought sickness and ill health. Miasma was the effect and product of environmental factors and haphazardness and carelessness and ignorance by those in authoritative positions... "The miasmatic position was that diseases were the product of environmental factors such as contaminated water, foul air, and poor hygienic conditions. Such infection was not passed between individuals but would affect individuals within the locale that gave rise to such vapours. It was identifiable by its foul smell." - Wikipedia Miasma explained cholera that contaminated towns and villages and cities like London Paris and Rome. Dr. William Farr the assistant commissioner of London was the one who claimed that there was contamination of the Thames riverbank system of which many earned a living from, and miasma explained the disease of urbanism and foul air and wastewater and raw sewage. It is from Dr, Farr that we gain Farr's law of epidemics...

“THE GIVING PLEDGE”: Philanthropy as an investment and a way of evading tax…

In 2010 Bill Gates and Warren Buffet announced formally -- and with a lot of pomp and ceremony "The Giving Pledge" campaign and started recruiting membership. The campaign was, "...to encourage extremely wealthy people to contribute a majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes." "Now hang on a  minute, my eyes watered up, give me a minute okay...*cough, sniff*" "*Sigh*...okay I am better now." Now ordinarily one would say, "OMG, how wonderful, all those rich billionaires contributing to the fixing of world problems, philanthropy and humanitarian causes and things like proper government, health care, and global hunger and suffering, and confronting the real problems of the present and future world -- finally, these might be addressed." But that is not what is happening here. In fact, things will get worse as these fools start to utilize vast sums of money to fix what, they believe, are the problems of mankind. Without a consensus of approval by the rest of us, this tiny number, of some 200 individuals will make earth-shattering decisions and changes to the planet. From climate to vaccination, from freedom to politics, to vaccination and back to politics and then vaccination again. And then a immunity passport with socialism attached.

POEM: COLLEEN A Irish Tale

Rushed in wet wool, mad mud underfoot... Left the house at three, it was dark and I was heart-dipped in honey Courage and other belongings stuffed in an old pillowcase, my mother's swollen eyes and her smothered kisses It is the sickness that is the worse for me, moving always moving I drown in this smell, of vomit and the urine. I am so afraid...I have never been this afraid I tremble and am banged about the broken world outside of me It is always the same

CONSPIRACY THEORIST

There is, a specific type of smugness when someone within a group of like minds calls out the heretic. When group thought has totally permeated the platform, as a bastion of central opposition and knowledge to a world that is seemingly going insane -- a world is unknowable in the end. Too many possibilities. Can I prove that? Without falling into skeptical thought, not really.  Nothing can be proved without a doubt, it is a matter of the evidence collected in favour of what one believes -- or the group believes. We are all capable of that confirmation bias, even those who point out the heretic. Doubt can always be generated, with enough intelligent thought. And so as long as that persists, truth in the fact can never be absolute. And must always remain in doubt, a sort of plastic thing...

IN THE JAWS OF THE BLACK DOG: Part 2

... I have reached a measure of greater understanding of who I am, and am proud of my abilities, the skills and talents I have had to achieve just to remain off the street and not a homeless man. To have taken advantage fully of the many gifts personally, but have not achieved the success in those that I should have had, all those that were given, along with the emotional baggage and emotional immaturity and insecurity and weirdness sometimes that I can be. I am a greater artist even though, condition stopped me from painting. I have made many inroads into music and my guitar and carpentry and working with my hands; my writing of poetry and storytelling which has helped me to develop a way into my own mind and find out where I falter with language. I am an obsessive dictionary reader, always unsure of my use of the language...

IN THE JAWS OF THE BLACK DOG: Part 3

Autism has left me in ruins sometimes emotionally -- many times socially, and yet as the artist, I have soared to the highest ground it has shown me I feel. The risk-taker, the expanded vision, the imagination journey as visuals are my chosen language. The ability to see something so very complex and decipher it and und4erstanding its meaning. Collaboration with other artists has produced works by me but not me solely.  Objets d'art I would not have been able to accomplish alone. I am a gifted painter in my own right, and I say that without any false modesty. Autism has made me quite visual in my learning and expression of myself...

Poem: BREAKER BOY

by Michael Burns The newsies and the match girls, and the breakerboys in back. They toiled away their little lives to keep their mamma's happy. Six days a week they left their youth inside the warmth you purchased, and easy reads from newsie feeds that salted your accounts...

ANGELA LOIJ: The Selk’nam Genocide

Today my mind is occupied with strange thoughts, they don't seem to be my own...I have written this tale before only to delete it. Out of some sense of shock or disbelief. Shame. Maybe pain at how outrageous we are as a species. Maybe because I didn't want to remember something like this...or possibly it stimulates my imagination to wonder how many times this has happened, in the past; long forgotten tribes of people wiped out in genocides for the sake of progress and the industrialization of the world. And will it continue to happen. In my lifetime there have been the genocides by forced drought on African people, and so they die of starvation. There have been illegal wars like that of Iraq which has killed a million of the citizens of that country, and the purposeful brutal and bloody genocide in Rwanda in the mid nineties....
