Tribal Warfare

Warning: possibly not work-safe (on the other hand, at least you morons can stop writing in to complain about the crappily low porn levels):

Ok, someone's written some nice articles on how we evolved into tribal warriors. All of us. Hardwired to the core. Fierce conquerors. The only question to be asked is - WHICH FRIGGIN TRIBE ARE WE HARDCORE FIGHTERS FOR?

You base the tribe on race, and you've set yourself up for perpetual warfare. Well, until the other race is completely wiped out, anyway.

But base it on anti-racism and HALLELUJAH. For more things - see message 666 - you won't find it in the bible - but you will find it in a 25 year long derivation of the Golden Rule by the greatest scientist the world has ever seen.

Here's a comment I got today:

"the problem with you is that you have so many meaning to a 1 word. you are too brilliant to be understood"

Actually, I must admit I failed to ask for an elaboration on the first part, and I don't quite understand that. I think it means that I condense material too densely that it becomes indecipherable. But I'll need to get clarification. Unfortunately that might be problematic, because in my usual style I managed to piss off yet another person.

Oh well, worse things happen at sea. [ref: Mike, Young Ones].

Anyway, a fantastic quote from the first article:

"Because we evolved from creatures who were always in danger of being eaten, our brains were built on a very simple foundation: the "fight or flight" mechanism. This let us make lightning-fast decisions by boiling every situation into two options. Anyone who preferred to stop and mull over the subtleties of the scenario wound up in the digestive system of a saber-tooth tiger."

So. Pick your tribe. AND START FIGHTING.

Check out the weaponry of the anti-racists, anti-religious bigots, anti-sexists, anti-subjugators before you choose though. :D :D :D





objective - beliefs

The other day I saw this quote:

"it’s beginning to dawn on those of us who didn’t already know it that we’re not the ones who need to make changes in our beliefs and behaviors".

I have not seen this spelled out before, and it has been one of my many "unvoiced assumptions" that are part of my long line of logic that provide a solution to the world's problems.

The problem is one of OTHER PEOPLE'S BELIEFS. The problem is that other people (communists etc) are insisting that the problems in the world are all created by white anglo-saxon protestants (or variations of that them - male, capitalists).

The solution to this problem of false accusation is not simply to refute it with logic. You cannot solve 9/11 without coming up with a CHANGE IN BELIEFS by those who are hostile towards America etc. Republicans will tend to say "ok, who do we carpet bomb now to solve the problem". That's fine, they at least realise that someone else is at fault, and that action is required. Which is more can be said about the Democrats, who always think the solution is further flogging of the dead horse America.

But ultimately, bombing people is an admission of failure. ie you were unable to solve the problem (what problem?) peacefully, so you were forced to use violence.

All that is fine except for the fact that you did in fact, fail. It's a lot cheaper and more humane to fix the problem peacefully. You need to at least do some root cause analysis to find out the forces that caused that FAILURE.

The Iraqi blogs were the only place that I saw this root cause analysis being done at all. THAT is the importance of the Iraqi blogs. THAT is why the morally correct action in 2003 was to turn up to the Iraqi blogs and try to find a solution to the PROBLEM of needing to go to war. Prior to message 666, I did not know the root cause of what was causing all these "nutcases" to attack (or be hostile towards) America. I didn't know about the jealousy, because other people only value material wealth instead of basing respect on how much you helped others. Basically I didn't know that typical Australian values weren't universal, because we've been told for so long in Australia (with no easy way to disprove it), that other countries were all far better than us, far more tolerant, far more peaceful, far less racist, and that we needed to work very hard to catch up with them. Of course, it was all a pack of lies, and the reverse was resoundingly true. But until I teased it out of the Iraqi blogs, I simply didn't know that Arabs were racist.

Anyway, root cause of the problem is racism, and various other beliefs that people around the world - not just the Middle East - have. If you want to prevent another 9/11 (as opposed to just holding memorial services each anniversary to pretend that you care - note - I didn't bother watching the news on the 9/11 anniversary - because I don't care about damned boring, trite and irrelevant memorials) - you need to actively change beliefs of the guilty parties (guilty of hostility if nothing else - no "love thy enemy" there, anymore than there is in South America - or my Australian school - nor even some sort of self-criticism to determine whether you should make an enemy out of an innocent in the first place, and whether the Jesus whose statue you put on a mountain and lit up would approve of any of this behaviour).

THAT is the basic equation. Either admit failure and attempt to carpet bomb the majority of the world, including huge numbers of Americans - or start changing beliefs. I have a complete solution for anyone in the belief-changing business, including hope of the afterlife, a prophet, the lot. However, you don't need the whole solution. It is enough to spread secular humanism, and what (message 666) can be derived from that with a hell of a lot of effort by an intelligent person given a couple of decades and the right raw data. It didn't need to be me. Some other intelligent person or a government research program like the Manhattan Project could have isolated the human instinct to subjugate and the antidote for such instinct that was making the West successful and allowing NATO to naturally form (to the total bewilderment of the Russians).

In fact, I expect someone else to take over now. There is the whole sales pitch thing to be done now, where you have to start changing the education system in the Middle East etc. That's beyond my friggin job spec, America!!! It's time for you to pull your finger out of your arse. You did the easy bit of bombing the crap out of people using existing technology. I've done the tough bit by advancing theoretical understanding by a friggin mountain. Now the ball is back in your court. Instead of acting on emails from British teenagers by banning them from the US, how about acting on mine, where I explained how to protect you from another 9/11 in terms that were so simple that anyone more intelligent than a Whitehouse aide should have been able to understand. Oh.




Nuclear Dates

It occurred to me. The one bad thing about the (sort of) end of the Cold War, is that we've more-or-less missed the opportunity (nuclear holocaust) of eliminating the MM/DD/YY date format from the face of the planet.

Oh well.

Moving on. I have actually been monitoring Australian news recently - it is as interesting as Iraq, due to the possibilities it opens up.

First of all, quite frankly, Labor deserves to get back into power for these reasons:

1. The coalition making uncosted pledges.
2. The coalition making pledges. (ie spending taxpayer's money).
3. Labor restraining itself in how much money it was willing to bribe Wilkie with.

While ever Labor is willing to be more fiscally responsible than the Liberals, they deserve credit.

And all is not lost.

Just because the two independents decided to join Labor for now, a quick no confidence vote and it's back where it should rightfully be. It's not like they would be invading Iran tomorrow. Whenever the independents have been persuaded to liberate Iran, and Abbott is on board with that as a condition for becoming PM, it can be done.

So let the campaigning of the independents begin. :-)

I'd also like to comment on this relevant post. If only 34% can muster up the courage and decency to protect Australian children with a damned phone call, it's no bloody wonder that the pricks can't be bothered to ring up the US president when Iraqi women are being raped by their own government.

And that's an interesting thing in itself. People would literally rather get into a physical fight than risk holding an unpopular view in public and be ridiculed. ie the true bravery is not being willing to get into a fist-fight. The true bravery is being willing to go against the noisy and vindictive left-wing media.

Now all we need to do is wait for society to change to recognize real bravery as opposed to street thuggery. See you in 100 years? Don't hold your breath unless you like the colour blue. We can't get an attitude like that changed, unless the media allows it. Vicious circle. Unless ... I have a couple of chickens in the oven about to be plucked and hatched ... not to mention an amazing collection of mixed metaphors! But wait - there's no more!




Marx Brothers

One thing that dumbass Americans never get their head around is this quaint concept of "right to be an enemy". ie they attempt to secure their borders with technology and then say "ha, mission accomplished!" - you can't harm me! Fortress America.

The obvious problems with this "approach" are:

1. Maybe there's a technological flaw you aren't aware of. That's basically what happened on 9/11.

2. It's expensive to do things like that - why should you have to waste your money on this sort of nonsense in the first place? Why not beat the money out of whoever it is that is hostile towards you in the first place? And then kill him.

3. The very act of being hostile against a nice country like America is a sign of pure evil, and evil should be vanquished, not ignored. (hint for WWII latecomers).

4. When Americans travel overseas, they are subject to being singled out.

5. There is a scientific question to be answered too - why would someone be hostile towards America in the first place? I can show you Muslims who are pro-American (try Kurdistan). I can show you Arabs who are pro-American (take a look at Big Pharoah). And I can show you Arab Muslims who are pro-American (take a look at Mitha Al-Alusi).

Anyway, unlike dumbass Americans who don't know how to protect themselves, even after every man, woman and child has been issued with a bazooka and 1000 rounds of ammunition each, Blair seems to have his head on straight. I'm normally suspicious of left-wing types, but perhaps like Obama he's better than the morons who elected him. It doesn't come any clearer than this:

"Tony Blair has described radical Islam as the greatest threat facing the world today"

Yes Tony. Hole in one.

Well, we could quibble a little bit. Perhaps instead of "radical" it should say "literal".

If we had Christians reading about City Rape in the bible, and then saying that God's word (which they say is the bible) is more important than man's word (ie the laws of the US), and then literally finding out who the rape victims were in New York and then abducting and stoning them to death (as commanded by the bible), we'd have a big problem too.

We'd have a tough choice on what to do with Christians. Most Christians reject such teachings. I have spent a lot of time trying to convince Christians to stop eating pork, as per Leviticus 11. I have yet to meet one who was persuaded to give it up. The most they will do is scurry around the bible looking for a verse that says "oh, this one can be spun to counter that one". The one thing you can guarantee they won't do is give up their underlying assumption that their book is right in the first place. Oh, and also you can guarantee that they won't stop doing what they wanted to do in the first place, ie Bacon Burgers are Best.

Regardless, the end result is that there are literally 0 Christians in the world, as in, people who truly believe that the bible is the word of God and that they should follow it as it is currently written. As for Muslims. Well, I have also tried to get them to do things like give up their Christian friends (Quran 5:51). They will generally deny what it says, or use some other excuse. They don't ever say "wow, thanks for letting me know, let me ring up all my (now-ex-) friends and tell them goodbye".

In the case of both Christians and Muslims, it's whatever bigotry etc they've managed to internalize in their youth. Not what is now shown to them when they are adults.

So simply reforming the teachings is probably enough to do the trick. We won't know for sure until we've got more data after a concerted campaign. That includes teaching in America (and Australia!) - to make it look more like Khazakstan or Kurdistan or Iraq or what Iran will most likely look like as soon as we get an opportunity to look under the hood (ie in an environment of freedom).

And as I've said, it's not just Islam.

The thing that is common between Marx, Mao and Mohammed, is that they all have bad ideologies, born of dogma, or bigotry of some form. As I've said before, this stuff exists everywhere. I've heard outrageous anti-American lies from people like Michael Moore too. You can't just go up to the guy and show him around America and ask him to see the real America where he can see that he's full of shit. It's a waste of resources to even try.

We can do something about his government fan-base overseas though.

Bombs away, Blair!

And most importantly - the fact that we have a ready solution to problems is why we should care about those problems as priority. Actually, you can care about all problems, e.g. Australian muggers (ie you can help protect my human rights - I'd love that), but it's not a good use of resources. The Australian government is already trying to protect my rights, and as much as I would like the number of Australian police to be multiplied 10-fold, there will basically never be enough to ensure that I am never mugged. Better to help people who are effectively being mugged by their own government. We know where they are, and we have the technology to directly stop them, instead of piss-farting around in Sydney hoping for a mugger to make his presence known.

So yes. Care about me. Really really care. But don't act with any more resources than are already deployed, unless you see an opportunity to make a difference. The juciest opportunities are places like Iran, where you get to eliminate nukes before they're deployed, pick up an allied country (most likely) or at worst, neutral, and free 70 million people. Cool or what?




Democrats did 9/11

After 9/11, even the dumbest of the dumb Democrats had enough functioning neurons to go after the perpetrators. Of course, the direct perpetrators - all 19 of them - were already dead. To make it look like they were doing something, they agreed to go after the financers too. The implication being that if the 19 had simply saved their pocket money up and financed it themselves, that would be the end.

To this day, the Dumbocrats are still so dumb that they can't grasp the fact that it's a whole damned ideology that needs to be terminated with extreme prejudice.

It's an ideology that is prevalent across the entire Middle East. Iraq's the least worst of a very bad bunch. At least the Iraqis manage to actually register on the Richter Scale, with 0.3% voting for Mithal Al Alusi at one election.

Actually the ideology goes way past Afghanistan, past Iraq, past Arabs, past Muslims, and winds up back where it started - the same friggin Democrats in New York in the first place. That's right. The Democrats basically shot themselves in the foot. Note that even professional soldiers manage to do that (by accident). So don't be surprised that people as dumb as Democrats manage to do it too.

I have been reading some comedy of late, and two articles came to my attention. Both articles are humorous in their own context. But they highlight the problem of people being so deranged that they can look at a black object and literally call it white. Just like people bandying around claims about Americans being imperialist. Any time someone makes these claims of imperialism about America, they should be immediately shot down, and called out for the bigots/racists/whatever that they are. So, that's what I'm doing, and then some.

The "some" is that people casting negative aspersions about innocent Americans like that, are directly stoking the fans of terrorism. These terrorists are way too stupid to see the good side of that, ie "hey, if these Americans are willing to self-criticize, they can't be so bad after all, and I'll just concentrate on fixing my own logs in my own eyes instead of commenting further on America". WAY. TOO. STUPID.

And the Democrats themselves are Way Too Stupid to realise what they're doing. And they have surpassed even that, and are into believing their own propaganda. Sure, the propaganda/extreme self-criticism may well have been useful some decades ago. The exact point where it went too far was in Vietnam, where Soviet agents like John Kerry started spreading Soviet propaganda to show how "fair and balanced" they were. And this resulted in the Vietnam showdown being deliberately thrown, meaning poor girls like this were enslaved for years by the communists before being able to escape to the free west.

Fortunately, whatever else you may say about Obama, he's at least smarter than pretty much everyone who voted for him. He basically said "vote for me and I'll throw Iraq", and the treacherous Democrats did exactly that. Obama then subtly turned around and said "you treacherous pricks don't deserve the time of day, and I'm not going to throw Iraq like I promised". I don't have a problem at all with what he said. Again, what he did was strategic. He says the words "It's well known that he and I disagreed about the war from its outset", but in his deeds, he didn't put a foot wrong. It's not like voting against the war would actually do real harm at the time or anything, and he built up his anti-war street cred, ready to sucker-punch the morons who voted for him.

Maybe even all that association with Mr God Damn America was all a subterfuge too. Again - when the chips were down and the freedom of 27 million Iraqis was in the balance - Obama was there. The American people and the Australian people had abandoned our Iraqi allies. But one leftist politician - of similar caliber to Tony Blair - stood the course. And the course was good. Just like Bush said - as the Iraqis stand up, we will stand down.

Obviously it would have been nicer if the Iraqis had stood up quicker. I honestly didn't think it would take this long. But you have to live with the cards you were dealt. It could have been a whole lot worse as well as a whole lot better.

The important thing is that Iraq gave us our first glimpse of Iraqi Republicans. That's the toe-hold we needed - that was being suppressed under Saddam. We've still got a lot of work to do to expand that toe-hold, but it's there, and it's protected by freedom of speech. They tried to arrest Al Alusi, and the courts threw out the charges. Alusi can talk. And we can reply. Doesn't need to be to him personally. We have people like the Iraqi bloggers to talk to instead.

That's the great thing about a democracy. You can talk to the people who are strongly aligned with the government to find out what their motives are. Predominantly the pro-war are basically into crushing the skulls of enemies. But the neocons like me are there too. People who think that Iraqis, Iranians etc should at least have the same protection as American cats and dogs. Or whales in international waters. The fact that whales get more international protection, more lobbying of the government by ratbags like Greenpeace, than bona fide Iraqi humans, ranks up there with the low points that humanity has reached.

Don't get me wrong. I have no problem protecting whales. Or dogs. I want laws to protect them too. And indeed, protecting American dogs is achievable and practical, so it should definitely be done! I had incorrectly assumed for decades that the only reason there wasn't an RSPCI (to protect Iraqis) was because there was nothing we could realistically do at the time, so it was pointless to have such an organization. The opportunity came in 2003 (ie all the ducks were in a row that allowed us to get in with a semi-plausible excuse that would limit the warfare to just that one country), and at that time I expected all the RSPCI closet members to stand up and shout "freedom" in unison.

Didn't happen. Shocked me to my core. Caused me to think like I've never thought before to try to crack the riddle of what was making me a member of the RSPCI, but not my coworkers born and raised in the same damned country as me. It's almost like the US Democrats are some sort of glorified disease that has infected them.

Anyway, I call them out for what they are. Bigots. Plain and simple. Anti-American bigots. People that have an a priori negative opinion of a group of people - and not because of anything they said or did. If any group of people on this planet deserves the benefit of the doubt, it's the Americans. And I'm not suggesting that there is any doubt in the first place. Go speak to a pro-war American and you can personally meet the skull-crushers and the human rights defenders. Good luck finding someone who did it for some "free" (if you consider nearly hundreds of billions of dollars to be free) Iraqi oil. Even if you do manage to find one (ie one individual, we both know you won't actually get 1% of the American people) like that - what do we call people who judge all Americans by one American - BIGOTS. That's right boys and girls. Bigots.

And there's your enemy folks. Bigots of all stripes. Sexists, racists, religious bigots. A few more enemy factions too. Really, why hasn't anyone thought to write down all this stuff? ie a comprehensive list of enemies, so we know who needs to be defeated to prevent another 9/11, and to usher in the ever-elusive World Peace? Just write it down already!!! Surely the list of enemies is obvious? I mean, it took me 25 years to derive, but I'm "sure" there's people far smarter than me out there who could have written it down like 25 minutes after 9/11, so that Bush could have announced it in his first post-9/11 speech? Surely no-one would rely on me spending 25 years to do it the hard way, just on the off-chance that these super-smart people far smarter than me didn't actually exist (after all, I'd never actually met one personally - but I don't get out much, so that could explain that)? Oh well. My version is still sitting there. Still dated Sept 11 (2004). If you're having trouble finding it, scroll down - it's in position 666. Can't miss it. But remember, you've never heard of the number 666 before in your entire life, so that's of no significance. And you've never heard of Sept 11 before in your entire life either. So that's not significant either. Just an ordinary message number, on an ordinary date, and the contents are ordinary too - it only took me 25 years to derive because I'm a slow learner, no because it's the most important bit of philosophy in the history of mankind, or anything crazy like that! You'll probably find the same thing laid out in Chinese fortune cookies if you look hard enough. So all we need to do is convince the Saudis and Palestinians to buy like 10 flied lices and World Peace is a dead cert.
