Technology, Socialism, and the Human Mind

February 26, 2013

In the last thirty years, under the Western Socialist Democracies like the U.S. and Europe, and especially under the Asian economies, like India and Japan, we have seen a huge amount of human energy put into the development of technology, while at the same time these societies have become more and more bureaucratic. What has been the effect of these two simultaneous developments on the brain of the Human Being?

The development of the computer, and the multitude of gadgets that now incorporate computers within themselves, has meant that the Human Brain and Human Thought have become more and more mechanical. It now requires a mechanical brain to successfully negotiate with the world, while previously it required an intelligent, energetic brain, that was not conditioned by the step one, step two, step three, mechanical necessities of the computer. The politicians have even touted computers in the classroom, and we now are developing generations of humans who have been conditioned since childhood in a completely mechanical way, so that anyone of thirty or under has now probably had their brains deeply conditioned since childhood by this new necessary way of thinking, while those over thirty did not have such conditionings in their early childhood, but have been forced to think in that mechanical way later in life.

What is going to be the longterm effect of this mechanical technology on the Human Brain and the way man thinks?

After all, man has had to rely on his memory and experience for survival since time immemorial, but now, with the computer, a vast number of facts that used to be held in the head of the expert, can now be held in the head of the computer discs, so what need is there for the memory expert, or the masterful reference librarians of the past, who displayed the art of memory, association, and linkage with what was in the library’s collection? Google wiped them out.

So, a vast amount of mental energy, that used to be used in a non-linear way, is now exclusively channeled into mechanical, procedural, step-by-step processes, that make the mind dull and repetitive.

Perhaps in this fact lies the appalling shallowness and superficiality of modern art forms, such as pop music or cinema. These art forms blossomed in the pre-computer age, but now they are moribund and superficial.

So one asks, if the human mind has been made both redundant and second-class by the computer when it comes to calculation and memory, what is the function of the human mind, and what will be its function in the future? Moreover, can a brain which is so heavily conditioned from childhood in the mode of mechanical thinking ever brake out of the patterns it has been put through for years in our horrendous public schools, which merely develop children to be fodder for the corporations?

One might well ask, why haven’t things gone the other way? Why, with such a rich earth that could easily provide all the basic necessities for everyone, haven’t we put all the vast energy we have put into technology and armaments into freeing the human mind from conditioning, instead of reinforcing that conditioning through technology? Say all that energy had been put into philosophy, into understanding why mankind lives such a disordered, problematic life. Perhaps we would now have an orderly, non-violent world, where children were encouraged to think out the problems that will confront them as people — not just as wage-earners.  But mankind seems only fascinated by the latest technological gadget. The problems that occupied the Greek Philosophers, the Buddhists and Hindus, the Rabbis and Church Fathers — all these have very little interest for modern man.

And, added to the deadening of the Human Mind by the repetitive, mechanical technologies, are the Socialist Bureaucracies and Corporate Destuctiveness that is pervasive throughout the so-called Western Democracies. Socialist societies suck up more and more energy from the individual (at least the one not on a pension or some form of welfare), as they make more and more demands on him, and create more and more economic inflation. The Obama medical insurance mandate, his zwang-arbeit “national service” plan, which in Jefferson’s day was called “slavery”, his constant inflation of the currency to bail out the banking interests he represents and takes huge sums from in his campaigns, and the raising of tax rates — all these are examples of this sucking away the life energy of the individual by the Socialist State. The pattern is virtually identical in other socialist democracies like Canada, the Eurozone, Great Britain, Australia, Japan and Israel.

Any individual who manages to survive on their own in these socialist bureaucratic societies, and haa some energy left over for philosophical examination of his own psyche and behavior, will soon find that energy submerged by the mechanical demands of either the computer, or some other gadget, like the new computerized cars. Modern life has become far more complex than any previous age in this mechanical aspect, as well as its governmental-bureaucratic aspects.

So between the mechanical technologies, and the demands on the individuals freedom and energy by the socialist societies, the Human Being is being destroyed, and completely transformed into a mechanically-brained robot, whose mind is incapable of breaking out of its conditioned pattern. The vital energy he needs to wholly confront life, as the Indian did, is now broken up and fragmented into a thousand unintegrated actions, thanks to the computer and the Socialist. His only outlets are amusement and entertainment, which is why television and video media have become so important in modern life. Entertainment is what most people seek in the modern world, not Philosophy or Truth, or transforming this rotten world society.

The Libertarian Philosophy, or Classical Liberalism, is the only response we see in society to this all-pervasive bureaucratic mechanicalism, for it is the only political movement based on a philosophy of Natural Rights, and not merely politics. But in a world so heavily ruled by the socialist’s governments, and the gadgets, Libertarianism has very little chance of breaking through. In the last American election, it garnered only one percent of the vote, which is probably about the percentage of people remaining who have not been completely conditioned by the mechanical world, or brainwashed into the various political ideologies, Left, Center, and Right. Libertarianism is far beyond these mere political ideologies, for it is the only political movement with only one goal: the mental and physical Liberty and Freedom of Humankind.

The Human Mind is dying out thanks to the machine and the government socialist, and only the Libertarian Philosophy of Natural Rights stands in the way.

President Obama’s Insane Minimum Wage Proposal: Communism Closes In

February 17, 2013

In a recent headline one saw on the BBC website under “Health”, there was a report that tobacco “rotted the brain”.

Clear proof of this must have been displayed in nicotine-addicted President Obama’s State of the Union Speech, when he proposed an increase in the minimum wage from $7.25 (US) to $9.00 (US). At least that’s what we read he said. We couldn’t bear to watch his speech, not because it was President Obama especially, but because we cannot stand to listen to any politician save Ron Paul, who at least teaches you something new about political science with ever speech. Even Gary Johnson is boring, (and thus, far more electable since he seems to be a typical politician).

But President Obama’s call to raise the minimum wage is clearly insane, and suicidal to the economy. It could never even be voiced in a Libertarian society without hoots of ridicule from the mass of the public. Has the President already forgotten his huge inflation in large part caused by the last minimum wage increases which have taken it up from the $5 and change level to its current $7.25? Evidently he has, which isn’t too hard on a $400k a year salary, while 40% of the country now has $500 or less according to a Drudge report listing. The inflation that wage raise has helped cause (along with FED money-printing) has driven the price of necessities up fourfold in terms of food and gas, as well as undoubtedly wiping out millions of small businesses who could not survive at the higher minimum wage, thus shutting down competition and further raising prices. It has also disemployed all the people who were working at those businesses, as well as anyone who would have been hired at any new business that would have been created at a $5/hr minimum wage, but was not even started because of the higher wage costs.

Isn’t it nice to hear people making $100k/yr (the average Federal salary and San Francisco city worker’s salary), or who have a lifetime pension, or an overpaid union job, tell unemployed people who have no money that it is immoral for them to work for less than whatever the wage level the government sets. Armchair Liberal Democrats who disenfranchise the homeless hobo from any opportunity to get any kind of money. Let them eat cake, huh? The Marie Antoinettes of the Democratic Party.

But the level of the minimum wage is not the vital question at all. The real question is, why do we have a minimum wage law at all, especially in a society that could be so wealthy thanks to the developments of science and technology? Why is it that in a supposedly Capitalist society, where all give lip-service to the “free-market”, we permit the government to restrict this one item of trade — labor— and make it a crime to engage in a free-market on this one issue? What gives a wealthy politician like Barack Obama the right to say to a penniless hobo, “It is a crime for you to rake leaves for $6.50 an hour, even though you’re starving, homeless, and this kind poor pensioner on Social Security, who can barely feed himself thanks to the Obama Inflation and who cannot afford more than $6.50 an hour, offers you two hours work. Both you and he are criminals!”?

Under a $9/hr minimum wage it will be virtually impossible for the homeless to get any kind of work, thanks to President Obama and his wealthy Liberal Democrats. How immoral.

This Immorality would not exist in a Libertarian society, where people would be free to contract and pursue their happiness as they saw fit. Should a wealthy man be called a criminal because he charged a very poor man for the wealthy man’s labor at less than the minimum wage, because the poor man was too proud to accept charity, and the wealthy man didn’t want to embarrass him? We’d say that was highly Moral. The Democrats have made it a Crime.

Of course, the greatest sufferers from the mimum wage laws are our tormented American Youth, who are growing up under the miserable conditions of the Obama Administration’s misadministration of the country. Go look up the levels of teenage unemployment in America before the introduction of the minimum wage and after it. Then look at the level of White teenage unemployment compared to Black teenage unemployment before and after the introduction of the minimum wage. (If you haven’t looked it up, the rates for both classes of teenager soared after the minimum wage introduction, but the rates for Black teenagers soared far higher than Whites and have stayed like that ever since. The minimium wage is not only an assault on our Inalienable Rights, it is an assault on teenagers, and even a racist assault on Black youth. No Klanner fiend could have ever thought up a more effective anti-Black Racist measure than the minimum wage laws.) A higher minimum wage will just make it that much harder for teenagers to get any kind of work and experience in learning how to handle money, while the inflation it causes will make them poorer if they do manage to get any. No wonder so many youth drop out of high school, take drugs, and drift apathetically. What does this rotten government offer them but more hurdles to any kind of economic freedom? Under Pol Pot, it was a crime to have money.

Under Jeffersonian Libertarianism, the Right to Contract is one of the Natural Rights, the Inalienble Right of every Human Being — the Right to Pursue Happiness. The Communists, and we call them that because they are restricting a free-market by force and coercion, have stolen that Right, and the People must take it back at the ballot box, through the Court of Public Opinion, of which this blog is a miniscule part, and through non-violent political agitation (demonstrations, rallies, running for office).

The only exemption from this principle of no minimum wage should be for those commonly referred to as “Mongoloid Idiots”, a horrible term for someone whose intelligence is so primitive that they could easily be gulled into working for an amount that could not even sustain life, a level at which no rational person would accept employment.

After reading of the President’s minimum wage raise proposal, Silverwolf believes the BBC report that “tobacco rots the brain”.

President Obama Nominates an Anti-Semite: The Hagel Farce

February 7, 2013

In a slap at both Israel and the Jewish voters who supported him 70-30%, giving him his million vote margin of victory, President Obama has nominated the bigoted Senator Hagel to head America’s Defense Department. This tragic nomination shows both the contempt the President has for his supporters, and his complete lack of understanding of the necessities in the Middle East. To nominate someone who has made a clearly anti-Semitic reference when he has labelled the American supporters of Israel as the “Jewish Lobby”, even though there are more Christian Zionists in America than there are Jews, shows the twisted mentality of Senator Hagel, and the clear callousness of President Obama, someone who should be fully aware of the deadly implications of racism. To nominate a Racist for such a high office is a disgrace to the President, and lowers the moral grandeur of the Office of the President. It’s as if President Kennedy had nominated Lester Maddox as his first Civil Rights enforcer.

You’ll notice that Hagel never made mention of a “German Lobby”, even though he has sat, and perhaps still sits, on the board of Deutsche Bank, and that by voting in favor of the Defense Budget, Hagel is sending a hugh chunk of money to Germany and the other European parasite countries that suck over $100 billion a year out of the U.S. taxpayer to help pay for their “defense” costs, about 30 times what we loan and give to Israel. I guess the European Socialists are too poor, and too busy taking their annual month-long vacations, many of them at taxpayer expense if they are government workers, to payfor their own defense costs. And it’s funny that Senator Hagel made no mention of a “Christian Lobby” when he voted to send funds to Europe, since Europe is predominantly Christian, and even has Christian-Democrat parties so named, and State Churches.

Is not sending U.S. military aid to countries not under threat of imminent attack, countries that are ruled by parties calling themselves “Christian Democrat” or “Muslim Brotherhood” or whatever religion — is not sending such aid a violation of Jefferson’s sacred warning against mixing church and state? “Build up a wall of separation” said the old sage of 250 years ago, and Wisechief Jefferson was right.

The irony of the current situation is that Senators with names like Schumer and Feinstein are supporting the anti-Semite, while Senators with names like Cornyn and Cruz (really ironic!) are opposing him.

Add to this the fact that Senator Hagel has advocated talking to those Gangs of Murderers known as Hezbollah and Hamas. Now, seems to Silverwolf he’s been hearing talk of a “War on Terror” for quite a while now which was so necessary that it meant looking under all the girl’s dresses at the airports and blowing up a lot of innocent women and children in Pakistan, but now our possibly new “Defense” Chief is someone who advocates talking to a Mafia of Racist Murderers like Hezbollah or Hamas. Why is it, Seantor, that in Nebraska you’ll execute someone for murdering one person but you’ll talk to gangs of murderers who kill thousands? Perhaps the Senator has forgotten the Bulgarian bus driver who was blown up in the Hezbollah attack in Bulgaria, as was confirmed today. I bet his family hasn’t forgotten.

Of all the possible choices President Obama could have made, Senator Hagel is probably the worst and most abrasive, and it shows how morally bankrupt the President is.

The Farrakhan Wing is now in control of the Democratic Party, and they are ecstatic.
