We’re pumped to be cool, calm and collected. “Nothing shocks...”. Damned internet, and media generally, pretends to unfold all so many mysteries has suckered us into a trance. From its DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) beginnings, the intention was and is, to screw-up and slave us. Turn on and tune out. Screens to pickle us. Our thinking saturated with mass info and visions, while dulling and depleting reactions.
Cool to be cool. Neither hot nor cold, and therefore, would that should vomit.
What’s refreshing about Jordan P is the underlying wonder in his tone. He wants to be surprised and has declared, “be wrong”. Gets a new big rev or thesis, says, he hammers at it with all he can find. Smash ‘confirmation bias’ and upset the sums. If...
Might take a while, he suggests. Months or weeks. Trying new trouble-with and alternatives. You can hear how confident he is or otherwise, as he measures strengths of conviction and evidence.
Question is; Are there social and psychological jumbos that without acknowledgement we do the very JP Rule 1: Don’t Do.
Of course telling truth thoroughly and obviously, keeps the teller from the world JP is allowed to inhabit. He might think he faces Caesar’s opposition but he’s allowed in the city. The flailing mainstream.
I like to keep an eye on those, just about-in, but out.
Like Lionel banging on of late – this as a lawyer – that it’s unquestionably the ‘what’ not the ‘why’, matters most. Certainly in court and for right judgement and presumably justice.
About all that matters in busting the scam. And not complicating the investigation. Because if the motive seems remote, the crime might be an accident, a mystery – a freak.
He compares the need to unpack an intricate corruption, on the quest to see arrested destruction, unwillingness for people (in the main and look respectable types) to acknowledge the simple WHAT.
Not, “no couldn’t be, because – why”.
As Van M. sang, “it ain’t why, why, why, why, why – it just is”.
Lionel has been on “let’s get back to (hand flat extended, raised, horizontal, quick downward motion) Building 7”.
The grim assessment, is if-no uprising, it’s because there’s an ineptitude and wilful desire to be ignorant. Swamped by screen-time. The net catches the global crimes and takeover – the net tells us “forget it” we’d tell you, if you should be concerned.
Or “I know but...”. Gross immaturity and back to JP’s over-riding woe; Irresponsibility. Individually, and through duping winds from the pit of hell.
‘London Bridge is falling down, falling down…’ or Bill Hicks in shattering smarm, ‘go back to bed america’.
The risk for the rot is the lullaby gets too loud with alarms. That the f.flags flap too obviously and a screaming child wakes the crowd about the naked tyrants. That men and women in places of authority give their lives for humanity. Or, perhaps for God. (Assuming no cop-out now/give-up and wake up, whooshed off to the clouds theology).
For me, comes down to press ‘shut-down’. The internet is the drug of the nations.
Maybe censorship and get-off because, is hope not tragedy?
