There's a certain sad irony embedded within the very core of an education system, particularly state operated. As individual humans we are unique. Sure, there are many common traits, common behaviours, common bodily functionality, etc., but in the end, regardless of commonality overlap and with the possible exception of some twins, the sum of the parts of a human equal a unique individual. It is with use of the 'observation + experimentation = knowledge' formula that we are able to say this with confidence.

Remember: corruption does not necessarily mean career criminal/career douche-bag type activity. A wink here, a nod there, a person feeling they are doing a benign favour for another, “it's drug money–who is going to miss it?” and so on. We must keep in mind economies of scale here, cumulative effects: multiply these it-only-happened-once-or-twice type examples across all our social structures and populations. Further, even if the majority of folks only really do this once or twice, time moves on, staffing changes, new folks enter the picture.

I'm sure most of us have heard the phrase ‘one size fits all’. In the context of humans and human behaviour, there is a ratio here: the one-size-fits-all idea begins failing in direct relationship to the number of humans making up the ‘all’ bit. In my experience it doesn't take a very large number of peeps before this occurs, before one size no longer fits all. It most assuredly does not work/apply even at the neighbourhood level not to mention regional, provincial, national.

Impelled by the notions that science is oppression and criticism is violence, the central regulation of debate and inquiry is returning to respectability — this time in a humanitarian disguise. In America, in France, in Austria, and Australia and elsewhere, the old principle of the Inquisition is being revived: people who hold wrong and hurtful opinions should be punished for the good of society. If they cannot be put in jail, then they should lose their jobs, be subjected to organized campaigns of vilifi cation, be made to apologize, be pressed to recant.

In recent months, accelerating seemingly by the week, there has been an obvious shift in emphasis away from what really matters in any health related situation, legitimate hospitalizations & fatalities, and on to the so called 'case'. IMHO, and I explain my reasoning in a separate article, the manner in which the corp media, govt groups et al are using the term case is a complete misrepresentation of the meaning of the word. IMHO this is obvious simply…

Most provinces and territories in Canada have favourite dented cans that the politicians and residents alike love to kick around from time to time, good water cooler chat, good optics from the govt gang perspective. This alphabet rearrangement will focus on one of these cans, namely education which in turn I hope will be part of a bigger collection examining the pillars of our society and reality.

Unfortunately, 2020 is the year…no, there have been similar shitstorms, 2020 is OUR year…when the poor choices of the past produce a direct and negative impact on the present and oh boy, is that one big steaming pile of poor choices. 2020 presents a bird's eye view of fear, hysteria, stunningly pathetic displays of adults being the very bullies that are complained about, blind compliance, the apparent (final) death of critical thinking, apathy, ignorance and that's just for starters.

Hard to believe how far we've allowed ourselves to sink in such a short period of time. The Region of Waterloo *unanimously* approved mandatory mask wearing bylaws effective July 13th until at least Sept. 30th. To say this is a reckless decision and a blatant infringement on our rights as human beings is an understatement. Why? Oh, perhaps due to the fact that there is almost ZERO science proving masks effective in this situation but even further, there is ZERO data to back up this ridiculous decision; quite the opposite actually. Don't even get me started on the irony of the regional chair's first name . .

Examination of COVID-19 activity and why the data does not support mandatory masks not to mention the egregious human rights infringement.

Racism is not a verb, it does not describe action. Racism, discrimination, these are just words we use to describe internal and communicated human behaviour not a given part of nature, not something that was inherent to the planet prior to our arrival on it for example. There is little to no verifiable evidence that different groups of humans are 'wired' in such a way as to perceive other groups of humans as inferior or superior thereby making…

Libertarianism only requires societal agreement on one thing: liberty for all. Any other system requires agreements among many, both people and problems: difficult at best, or agreement among none, totalitarianism: worst. These systems end up failing at one point or another, sometimes spawning progress, maturity and forward motion for the population or repeating themselves over and over in a kind of groundhog day manner, a reset each time, dictator after dictator, democracy after democracy down through the ages.

The mainstream media, just like clockwork, have begun anew the building of fear and hysteria with their collective proclamations of: Spike in cases! Humans, or at least the current generations inhabiting Ye Ole Earth at the moment, have (developed) short attention spans. The reasons and motives are for another tale. The riot/protest narrative was losing front page steam but did make a nice segue (back) into Spike in cases!. The average Joe/Josephine…

"Speed kills, Del" ~ Dr. Johnny Fever

Over the course of the last few decades, perhaps a wee bit more, human life here on planet earth has steadily been putting the peddle to the metal, an acceleration which did not abate any after the turning of the 21st century, the opposite actually. Individually we are rush, race, go here, be there, microwave this, fast food that. As a society, our consumption and expansion has continued, increased. In neither case…

Some observations from the world of the SARS-CoV-2 PANdemIC or Plandemic . . .

In a shell of nuts: my fellow earthlings, you are being had, plain and simple. You are being had not just in the context of current events but in the entire context of bank/corp/govt. You are being had not just by the sitting party politwits of the day but by the entire concept of government itself.

What humanity needs to do, but hasn't as of yet, is learn to strike a balance between these two axioms. If done right, we can get pretty close to having our collective cake and eating it too, complete with money hidden in it like days of old. While working hard to ensure the development of a set of products and services that allow those (this would include charitable organizations as well for example) who wish to embark upon the nurturing of those not able to do so for themselves while not forcing others to if they so choose, we must also stop being responsible for the failure and/or lack of foresight of others.

Do what what the state says or be cut off. This is the totalitarian message the mayor of Los Angeles delivered. Listen to his delivery style, very measured and calculated, a careful cadence steeped in drama and using emotionally charged words. He even invoked the spectre of the recent fires. This speech is a great example of propaganda. To be sure, he may even believe what he is saying, may really believe he's acting in the best interest but that changes…

For the first time in a long time, the pace of our existence has changed. Many of the circumstances surrounding our recent collective experience are new; very few folks are still with us who would have had even conceptually similar experiences, most have passed on. Further, due to advancements in technology, similar past experiences are not really possible anymore; digital data and information delivery changed the old playing field completely and there is no going…

If I never hear the terms 'social distancing' and 'self isolating' again I will daisy push a happy camper. This desire has nothing to do with wanting life back to normal, that ship has forever sailed, welcome to a whole new show, but rather the ease with which folks are normalizing these ideas and negatively judging, or worse, anyone who does not jump on this bandwagon. The phrases have been made trendy and fashionable, gross. It's also important to note that this type of embrace is only happening because the lights are still on and potable water is still running. Change either of those two dynamics . .

This is a collection of stuff that caught my eye and that I want to keep an eye on. For the most part, stuff here has not been fact checked yet most likely due to lack of time. If stuff turns out to be dragon dung, I'll remove it, if not, I'll also remove it but it will be posted elsewhere on the site. Bottom line: this is an unvetted collection bucket of info.

Based on many comments, memes and posts I've seen on social media over the last few weeks, one would get the impression that humans have never been exposed to a virus before. My personal most disliked ones are those that outline a potential trail of infection from one person to another usually ending up with the text painting the 'perpetrator' as a bad person while at the same time exposing the virtues of 'self isolation' or 'social distancing'. Ridiculous at best, misinformed fear mongering is more like it.

"Wikipedia is generally thought of as an open, transparent, and mostly reliable online encyclopedia. Yet upon closer inspection, this turns out not to be the case.

In fact, the English Wikipedia with its 9 billion worldwide page views per month is governed by just 500 active administrators, whose real identity in many cases remains unknown."

Closer to home, Canada has a host of issues of its own to deal with. The one I'd like to look at this morning is the ongoing pipeline issue with the Wet’suwet’en Nation and the supportive protests and blockades all across the country. Interestingly, this is actually an easy one to solve but because of government action past and present, the problem is much larger than it needs to be.

Twitter today provides us with a little insight into how the political system functions while at the same time showing us how broken the entire concept is.

From 2012 but the issues persist. In the context of societal change, monetary system reform is a must as no other changes in any other areas of our society will have any real effect with the status quo in place.

The princesses of the social justice warrior crowd are busy today lighting up the Interwebs, meaning Twitter, raining down all sorts of outrage and destruction on the head of John Wayne. Yeah, you read that right: the SJW Internet mob has now set their sights firmly on a 40 year old corpse. An almost 50 year old interview with Playboy magazine (yes, apparently some really did read it for the articles ) in which The Dukester's clearly evident racism came shining on through is currently making the…

By refusing service to a particular individual(s) or group, one risks cutting off a possibly large revenue stream and thereby adversely affecting the bottom line. Another possible consequence would be an enterprising entrepreneur setting up shop down the street catering to all and thereby capturing the rejected business as well as potentially capturing many more of the first shop's remaining customers.

Pretty shabby reporting Huffpost:

a) CDN$ is up only because USD$ has been dropping. Zero reflection on our economic activity.

b) The majority of Canada's current economic activity is debt fuelled and utterly unsustainable. Crash inevitable.

c) What was the result of the last dot com boom?

d) Silence doubters? 2 seconds with your favourite search engine will clearly show what a load of BS this statement is.

Article not worth the pixels its printed on . . .…
