Infrastructure Bill version 2.0 would be a more efficient way to go (revision of prior post)

President Biden, likes his two Democratic predecessors, is wasting a lot of time chasing after ideal partisan pork instead of pushing solid reform. Pork is a nice thing yet if accomplished with the decline of national finance and infrastructure it has deep hidden costs. Plainly the President needs an infrastructure plan revision 2.0. He has a chance to win one for the environment and should be serious about getting that accomplished directly. Sin means to miss the mark; missing the mark on a good environmental infrastructure bill would be a sin.

What the nation needs is a renewal of traditional infrastructure combined with a solid measure of new infrastructure. That means hyper-loop rather than conventional rails, wireless internet for everywhere at high-speed including Alaskan locals like the Copper River valley, North Slope, Anaktuvuk Pass, Nome and Wrangell. It means going bonkers over solar energy nationwide with special attention to those sunny portions of the 48 states. It means building a vast canal for saltwater with locks along the Mexican border that would be used for migration control and border security as well as serving to evaporate water that would be captured with transparent, sloped lids and trickle down to adjacent fresh water canals that are sealed and travel underground. The salt water would be pumped up with solar power from the pacific and spilled from Deming New Mexico east and west.

With so much global warming going on-especially in Nevada and Alaska, an abundance of new fresh water for farming and drinking would be useful across the S.W. as well as northern Mexico and create basket loads of work. That would be new infrastructure with a bang equivalent to the T.V.A. projects of long ago.

The new infrastructure bill could of course use conventional highways, and bridge reconstruction to transform existing blacktop surfaces that gather heat and release it at night with some sort of white-top surface that doesn’t absorb heat and stays cool after dark. A new streamlined and pure infrastructure bill should get solid bi-partisan support as people plainly would see that it’s not pork and would actually create jobs while attacking the scourge of global warming directly. Of course, building a vast network of public recharging stations for electric vehicle charging might help; and homeowners that produce electricity should be able to tie in to and sell their electricity to the alternate vehicle charging national power grid.

On the origin of philosophical idealism

 Philosophical idealism briefly-

     Philosophical idealism has its origins in epistemology- the theory of knowledge, rather than in political philosophy about an ideal state as some believe. Platonic realism in the Republic does have a theory of an ideal state yet the concept of the realm of forms, elaborated more fully and perhaps accurately by the Neo-Platonist named Plotinus in the 3rd century C.E. His work named The Enneads is brilliant yet differs substantially from theories about ideas, perception and reality as one discovers in the works of philosophers beginning with René Descartes who wrote in the 17th century. Plotinus was a philosophical-religious mystic considered heretical by the early church for believing he could experience God directly in heyschasm. Notably Augustine read Plotinus before converting to Christianity. Plotinus’ description of the One and the Intelligence emanating a realm of forms is a remarkable inference.

The realm of forms is an intuited metaphysical account of classes of objects, differentiations of objects and forms, classes and genres, and how they exist. One might say that there are perfect ideas of the form of every possible object or structure that exists in some way in the mind of God and everything that exists in the material universe is a copy or actualization of the perfect form. With temporal objects being subject to destruction over time it is reasonable to infer that a perfect form is eternal (if one accepts the existence of forms and ideas of forms somewhere not quite in this Universe.

 Before moving on to the school idealism that began with Descartes. I should point out that the Universe as discovered by physicists actually does have forms at the quantum level that energy must necessarily take to exist creating a certain resonance with Plato’s theory spanning two and a half thousand years.

 Idealism is actually, originally ideaism. Reading Descartes Meditations on First Philosophy published in 1641 one can clearly see that it is about ideas that are experienced by the mind, and the way they relate to knowledge. The intense introspection or self-examination of thought considers the problem of the certainty or lack of in it trusting one’s own thought. Maybe from that work the Irish philosopher Bishop Berkeley was inspired to develop the field of idealism further.

  Berkeley read John Locke’s works concerning perception and as far as I know created a synthetic advance on Locke and Descartes in finding ideas and perceptions somewhat phenomenal and things-in-themselves. Thought and perception become plainly subjective, including reality to a certain extent. One’s own mind has some challenges in verifying what exists externally and what does not, since all perceptions encounter or present within one’s mind. Today from common knowledge of physics one knows that particle-waves are interpreted through cognitive channels for humans that perceive ‘percepts’.

 Berkeley wrote that;

 “I do not argue against the existence of any one thing that we can apprehend, either by sense or reflection. That the things I see with mine eyes and touch with my hands do exist, really exist, I make not the least question. The only thing whose existence we deny, is that which philosophers call matter or corporeal substance. And in doing of this, there is no damage done to the rest of mankind, who, I dare say, will never miss it.”, Principles #35

 The Universe does exist within a Higgs field apparently, and matter is a secondary quality of energy slowed down to sub-light speed and flat two-dimensional form to three dimensions-hence allowing matter to exist, so I would not become too technical about claiming matter and corporeal substances are this or that myself, instead like many others I might describe matter as best I can in relation to the way the sub-atomic particles and forces of the Universe seem to my subjective experience. Certainly, one may venture an opinion that the entirety of fundamental quanta is funded by the will of Spirit (of God) as Berkeley apparently believed.

 Immanuel Kant follows Descartes, Locke and Berkeley so it is easy to see the development and continued work in the field of idealism of the German 18th century philosopher who write the Critique of Pure Reason and other works including the summary version named A Prolegomena to any Future Metaphysics.

 Kant investigated perception, cognition, reason and judgments and necessarily, ideas. His theory of judgment was a renewal of modern philosophy and very useful; https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/kant-judgment/

 The page above explains two basic fields of theories of judgment- psychologistic and Platonic. One may like Kant’s classifications of the a posteriori, the a priori and the synthetic a priori for a practical way of sorting out what one is thinking and consider how and what kind of knowledge it is. Analytic and synthetic judgments are useful differentiations.

 The one may leap forward past G.W.F. Hegel and other German 19th century idealism for combining metaphysics, history, teleology and other concerns that can be somewhat like synthetic evolutionary or teleological tomes, and get on to the 20th century philosophers like W.V.O. Quine (Word and Object) and P.F. Strawson (Individuals) who made a more technical examination of the nature of epistemology in relations to the mind’s ideas and percepts. Those are brilliantly informative works and brings the reader up nearly to the present with analytic philosophy an idealism.

 Jean Paul Sartre should be mentioned in the progression. Sartre actually described himself as writing in the tradition of French rationalism, yet one may easily say that he was also qualified as an idealist philosopher who considered subjective thought, experience and knowledge in a nearly Berkeleyian paradigm. Plainly he wrote in the tradition of Descartes. Being and Nothingness is a full exposition of the subjectivity of subjective perception and experience.

The reality of heaven and hell

Heaven and hell are not wrapped within the Higgs field paradigm, as is ordinary matter. The Higgs field slows down some massless particles to sub-light speed, and they pick up a third dimension along the line of travel instead of being flat, as are two-dimensional particles. Searching for a physical location of heaven and hell is something of an obsolete paradigm

Some believe that heaven and hell are physical places, yet they may be more spiritual, as they will be where spiritual beings exist. Others misunderstand cosmology generally, especially in relating it to Biblical hermeneutics and eschatology that they may also misunderstand.

The word Utopia itself means ‘nowhere’. With relativity theory people understand that locations are described just in relation to other locations- there is no ‘absolute’ or unchanging reference place as if Platonic realism and the realm of forms were situated in an absolute geophysical coordinate grid and the Universe or Multiverse also were rooted in it- as if some solid ground was supporting for the Universe to rest upon.

People don’t actually know if the Universe is a simulation, a concept in the mind of God, a construction or compound assembly with rules of construction on logical principles built up from one-dimensional, or even zero dimensional monads marvelously tangled in larger energy packets in a Higgs field. Instead it is fashionable to take the most contemporary scientific knowledge of cosmology as almost certain, exhaustive of definitions and inerrantly correct.

I believe that even if the Universe is a pre-determined multiverse of all possible worlds with each thought in each mind switching that individual mind to an appropriately configured Universe that people will eventually reach eternal hell on-their-own for lacking the saving grace of God through His son Jesus Christ to get him to the right place in the non-temporal eternity that is heaven.

If Pres Biden had a Demo majority at SCOTUS he wouldn’t try to add members to it

  President Biden has proven once again that he has no respect for democracy with the consent of the governed. Instead, like other Democrats in recent years he simply tries to corrupt the existing structure if it doesn’t work immediately to his advantage. While Republicans of Georgia messed with voting access in a way that seemed as if they were trying to prevent the poor of casting ballots in order to have a chance to win, President Biden accomplished the same conflict of appearance lawyers are supposed to try to avoid.

Like President Franklin Roosevelt who tried to pack the court with Democrats and expand it in order to accomplish his revisionist agenda, President Biden would like to expand the number of judges as he believes Democrats may not return to a majority right away.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/liberals-ramp-up-calls-for-supreme-court-justice-breyer-to-retire

The Judicial branch should be left alone to crank along as it does reasonably well as an independent branch of government. If one wants to keep the U.S.A. together as a democracy for very far into the future the judiciary should not decide that every state should have five times more representatives, nor that states should each have a dozen senators if they are from an underprivileged part of the nation, nor that there should be two Presidents, three French hens and a partridge in a pear tree.

Lawyer Presidents from the Democrat side tend to be wise guys in office that feel they are free to game the system, and that is very wrong. F.D.R.’s try was slapped down by Congress and so should President Biden’s. Americans may not know any better these days, especially since there are zero civil war veterans still living.

Communist gun control policy doomed democracy in Hong Kong

The Chinese Communist party has apparently effectively ended democracy in Hong Kong by casting out about all political dissidents under the rubric of a national security law. Actual democracy might present a threat to communism so they put it down. In the U.S.A. corporatism tends to act in a similar manner curbing free expression. They just haven’t gone so far as China has because people still own guns in the U.S.A., unlike Hong Kong.

www.cfr.org/backgrounder/hong-kong-freedoms-democracy-protests-china-crackdown

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_development_in_Hong_Kong

The Democratic party sometimes seems to forget that the American revolution occurred with a lot of shedding of blood, and that organizational goons really do need to keep a certain distance from homes with armed residents, and that is an inconvenience for politicians, CEOs and sundry megalomaniacs seeking total control of a society.

President Biden recently said that no amendment is absolute, in regard especially to the second amendment. The philosopher Soren Kierkegaard hated the use of the word ‘absolute’ that was used prolifically in his day, by certain Hegelians if I remember correctly. The word absolute has little additional meaning in a phrase quite often- it is something of a distraction. A constitutional amendment is ether meaningful and lawful or not. Some lawyers feel they can just disregard the constitution and amendments as inconveniences with work-arounds when they like.

It is surprising in a way to learn that many people aren’t really for democracy nor are aware of what it takes to sustain an actual democracy. The Catholic Church may have some imperialist ambitions left over from former times long ago, and some protestant clergy actually are for a theocracy-even some conservatives, and I don’t mean the one that returns with the physical appearance of Jesus Christ.

Democracy can be defeated by mass social decadence internally, by concentrated wealth so great that corporatism replaces it with citizens being silent, materialist worker-bees not much different from a communist government-fine for average, uncreative minions. It can be ended by a spoilt citizenry that inherited it and forgot that it does requires defense and an armed citizenry, sobriety and god sense.

A democracy should have classical sensibilities, modest goals and plain laws such as everyone can understand. Equal protection of the citizens, security of the nation itself with strong border control and sustainable ecological economic governance. The Romans had a few laws that everyone understand and that worked alright until the people developed bad policies, too much wealth and foreign estates and the colonies grew up in sophistication. The administration should not monkey with the judicial branch and think about trying to pack an expanded court with Democrats and corporatists. That would be another way to end democracy from the inside.

Capital increases faster than wages concentrating wealth

During the Covid crisis occasionally I had the opportunity to read toward the finish of Piketty’s eminently practical book Capitalism in the 21st Century that anyone with an interest in public affairs should consider required reading. The primary formula and main lesson of the work is r > g. It means that the average rate of return on capital is greater than the average increase of national income. Wealth therefore tends to concentrate and the higher one goes into income brackets the greater is the increase.

President Trump’s recent work with Microsoft toward buying the decadent Chinese music service Tic Toc is an example of wealth concentrating very fast indeed. The very wealthy can afford to take investment risks with a higher rate of return than those available to ordinary people.

Capitalists have gone global. They are quite internationally diversified. They hide 10 to 30% of their wealth in offshore tax havens. The actual wealth of the rich is reported through a glass darkly; the records are rather mystifying apparently. Much of the world has had no estate or inheritance tax records for example, and global accounting leaves many holes. As godless atheist media attack mystic aspects of faith and quantum mechanics it is their incompetent political protection of the mysticism of wealth that is the greatest mystic twit of fake news mystdirection. Hard social reality generally concerns money. If broadcast media want to pronounce some strange, exotic foreign word like Isaias (a cognoscenti spelling of Isaiah, the Biblical prophet) given to a hurricane, they use a spanish phonetic border pidgin of eee-sai-eee-as. The Bible is strange country to NPR apparently.

Billionaires have perhaps 5% of global wealth, yet it is the other 1 thousandth percent of global citizens with just a few or a few hundred million dollars that have as much as 50% of the wealth. Tic Toc is of more value than the income of all of the people of South Sudan- at least a free nation so far untroubled by NPR and other networking nefarious agents of evil conditioning masses to accept concentrating wealth and power.

There are several threats to Democracy concerning capital. Foreign entities can buy assets in foreign nations so the people pay rents to foreign powers. Sovereign wealth funds of China, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere could grow to dominate world economics. Wealth could concentrate so far that 1/1000th of global population would have 95% of the wealth of the world with legions of media sycophants in their pockets to explain to the people why the people are lucky they are living in the best possible world- whatever that is.

Without a regulating tax on capital globally redistributing revenue to the world, perhaps on a national, demographic basis (or not), democracy will die if it hasn’t already done so. It is possible that the United States is in a zombie phase in regard to democracy- dead yet with a vague resemblance to the original though living on debt and exploit of environment and enterprise elsewhere. The learning curve for members of congress is so steep concerning real economics the newly elected are fundamentally idiots without hope. Piketty’s book would help them somewhat-maybe they can hire someone to read it to them.

Politicians that are clueless run the nation decade after decade and overturn the political social economic egalitarian measures won by the soldiers of the First and Second World Wars. They concentrate wealth and cut taxes on the rich, on estates and income of the well-to-do. Those are recipe’s for national disaster, and environmental politics have taken a beating too as the most rich are unconcerned with mass extinction and seek easy, dirty profit; that is the course indexed Wall Street mutual funds usually take.

Democracy and real, generally accessible free enterprise, require large doses of economic egalitarianism to function. Restoring the decaying global ecosphere also requires national and global policies wherein everyone is included and has a stake in economic transitions to more ecospheric efficiency. People that are starving or living death of a salesman lifestyles find it challenging to be concerned about abstract to them environmental issues. Ordinary people need to be shareholders in their political economy and the rich should be close enough to the people in income to not be detached entirely from social and ecospheric reality.

National political parties of the United States don’t usually have rational goals and clear objectives. Voters are contented with vague and ineffective platforms. Business planning is quite a bit different as is flowcharting. For income inequity to be transformed to a more egalitarian socially functioning model based in ecological sustainable free enterprise real goals and structured methods need be made by political parties.

It is laughably unreasonable to expect politicians to accomplish anything beyond enriching the richest and concentrating wealth in the absence of meaningful party plans. If one does not even to create good effective goals finding the means to accomplish those goals is highly improbable.  Goal objectification could be done with flowcharting so the general public could easily comprehend the gist of what is trying to be accomplished, and of the time frame. Without that one simply elects garbage in and garbage out in a manner of speaking.

One of the greatest problems for the poor is instability. When the poor lose jobs they can go broke and lose most or all investments and material goods. They need to try a disadvantaged restart while trying to save in order to build a little capital. Rent is costlier than owning property usually, and without owning a secure place with job security the poor cannot buy durable goods. Income stoppages that are devastating to the poor can be trivial to the rich. The rich may be little harmed by periods of unemployment.

A nation need build income security for the poor and eliminate poverty throw guaranteed minimum income. It needs to have a walk-in free public health service for all of the poor without paperwork except for verification of income and citizenship status including those too poor to afford Medicare Plan B coverage. The U.S.A. should have free public education through graduate school for all citizens because it is to the public advantage to have people soak up all of the learning they possibly can. When these simple structural goals are accomplished and there are secure borders with no illegal immigration destabilizing social structures, then the U.S.A. can export more help to neighboring and other foreign nations (except Canada obviously) to help them accomplish similar democratic paradigms of free enterprise and income security from the bottom up. Rational political goals are requisite for achieving rational and satisfying political work.

If President Trump had set construction of a border control canal that would have evaporated saltwater and collected that as condensation instead of a Wall he might have got popular support for the Mexican border canal project; people in the Southwest generally want more fresh water and it would be a politically hard thing to oppose.

Presidential challenger Biden’s border security approach is to stop building a securityu wall and put high tech ankle monitors on illegal aliens that will voluntarily turn themselves report in, in exchange for a freeway to citizenship. Former V.P Biden would also end Chinese trade sanctions and replace it with a multilevel approach of kickbacks and kow-tows. Each party lacks good ideas.

 Rational goals should have social synergy than benefit society. Racism is used to divide the nation along non-economic lines, when economic divergence is the actual core problem instead of race. The United States doesn’t have an egalitarian distribution of wealth among white people any more than with blacks. People including whites who are bound to chase after wealth in networks controlled by the most rich tend to be mean and even vicious not unlike dogs snarling over a bone with chunks of meat attached to it.

In the emerging atheist Democrat society of queer and debased social values evil and bad character without intellectual merit are good character traits. To be treacherous, deceiving, petty and venal in a mass social environment are good ways of interacting, while, alternatively contemplative intellectual objectivity is inefficient at chasing after the bone of contention. In a decaying modern society evolving into some sort of corporatist-socialist plutocracy Machiavelli’s value that applied to the prince now apply more broadly to the masses. Needless to say, such souls are likely to find Jesus Christ and salvation challenging to locate sin while they have their heads so far up darkness.

Epidemic of work exertion causes twice the rate of death compared to gun homicide

 Apparently the United States does have about seven gun deaths per 100,000 people annually. That probably is short of comprising an epidemic.

Most gun deaths are suicides, and it is unfortunate that is something of an epidemic (suicide), and the causality be be in part a result of horrible bi-partisan politics in D.C. If politicians could create a better environment with recovering wilderness and border security the fatalism, desperation and sense of futility might fade away. Some Americans probably cannot even afford a good bowl of chili and others are hop heads doped by drugs.

There are 12.4 automobile accident deaths per 100,000 people annually and that could use some better regulation to scale it back from threatening to become an epidemic. Machinery kills 531 Americans per 100,000 each year. In some ways it would be good to ban infernal machines.

https://webappa.cdc.gov/sasweb/ncipc/mortrate.html

Fourteen deaths per 100,000 are caused each year by over-exertion. One must carefully weigh the epidemic of work over-exertion deaths versus those tragic deaths caused by sitting on a couch drinking sugary drinks per 100,000.

https://webappa.cdc.gov/cgi-bin/broker.exe

The actual Covid 19 epidemic has maybe 170 deaths per 100,000 people in the U.S.A. so far.

The Wealth of Nations no more (it’s corporations)

 The wealth of corporations has replaced the wealth of nations in the capitalist universe. Adam Smith’s nearly 250-year-old book had no concept of the rise of global corporations replacing national economies. It would be a useful practice to create a global corporate minimum tax on corporations in order to more equitably allocate financial resources locally to citizens instead of clever planetary gamers that own the house.

Modern economics does have a resemblance to gambling casinos with the odds tilted toward the house too much. Capital’s rate of return is greater than the average increase of labor wages so workers become something like like chattel as wealth is concentrated and self-reinforcing.

In economics, unlike gambling casinos, the house should be non-profit and inventors and workers including management should receive compensation for their efforts in response to what they put in to it. Presently the house takes too large a percentage of profits and keeps tightening up the flow to everyone besides the owners. That restricts invention and political independence of nations as a planetary class of plutocrats own everything in site and people shop at the company store.

Jobs can be relocated globally in the quest for cheap labor in support of corporate proplits. That is a race to the bottom for every man if not for every woman who may be more contented with having equal wages with men by getting rid of manly jobs to distant poor nations or  done with illegal migrant labor. Black males can always write on corporate social media and earn a living can’t they?

Simulated Universe theory and Creationism

If the Universe is a simulation that includes a para-normal construction of God paradigmatically. Recently some have felt they can confirm that the Universe is a simulation. I posted a link to an article at scientific Americans that uses a ‘scientific’ method to do so. Philosophers might have trouble combining cosmology, epistemology and hermeneutics into analytical structures to regard all of the data that is relevant in so far as the Universe potentially as a simulation. Scientific American recently posted an article detailing a way to ‘prove’ the Universe or Multiverse is a simulation. Using the speed of light as a limiting paradigm that could only exist in a simulation rather than in natural physics (an artifact of a simulation ala creationism) is an interesting and meaningful philosophical question. If the Universe is a level four Multiverse as Tegmark writes about in The Mathematical Universe it could also be a simulation or alternately yet not exclusively exist in the mind of God.

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/confirmed-we-live-in-a-simulation/

I don’t know of many contemporary philosophers who can examine and compare the wealth of cosmology material, Multiverse theory, simulations and the capacity God to determine a priori the existence and order of all possible Universes within His mind. Plotinus might have addressed such questions as well as Augustine or Plato-Socrates.Proof that the Universe is a simulation would work as well as a proof that the Universe was created in the mind of God, or exists as a ‘subroutine’ in one of his logically ordered thoughts.

Will California be a fire disaster again this year?

California’s wild fires create vast left-wing clouds of smoke that drift to the right and north making heavy smog and bad breathing conditions for many. One wonders if that state is better prepared to extinguish forest fires this year than it usually is. Each year becomes a little warmer and drier than the last it seems reinforcing conditions for forest fires. At some point the state of California might find it useful to invent new, better ways of swiftly getting wildfires under control so residents of other states that are downwind won’t get the usual smoke and mirrors.

While California has its usual attractions like Hollywood attractions and the recall of the governor, it should invest some substantial thought into fire control in the Northern part of the state. Maybe they could invest in several more big gulp aircraft to have more fluids to dump on flames faster. Perhaps the aircraft could be electric or even drones specially designed to reload fire retardant or water, seek and extinguish with a high cyclical rate.

President Joe’s infrastructure bill should include at least one hyper-loop

 On a happy Easter morning when the nation can feel blessed in the good news of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the national infrastructure bill is calling to President Joe Biden for an upgrade to afford the construction of even one trans-continental hyper-tube. The resurrection of U.S. infrastructure requires new thinking and technology instead of just investing in already existing technology.

Sure one would like all truck stops in America to have electric recharging stations. Maybe there should be discounts on biscuits and gravy for any driver with an electric vehicle; yet getting just one hype-tube built that tosses passengers and cargo across the nation at 1000 k.p.h. would indicate the nation is not entirely mired in past infrastructure and actually looks ahead.

https://eandt.theiet.org/content/articles/2020/11/hyper-tube-train-model-hits-1-000kmh/

It would be great if super-freighters moving across the oceans could directly unload containers to railroads from the docks and if rail cars could be independently switched to destination routes- maybe their is some streamlined electric way to upgrade to better, faster, cleaner intermodal systems technology, infrastructure and flowcharting, yet practical hyper-tubes require federal intervention for rights of way and execution; so good luck Joe on actually getting some infrastructure resurrection started for getting anything done in the U.S.A. is rather difficult these days with all of the litigation and natural human tendency to criticize more than create.

Culture wars vs. progress

Democrats are so inept at Domestic politics, other than those of force that they excel at, as to assure national divisiveness on simple issues of interest to all like infrastructure upgrade and renewal. To some the party seems like a domestic terror agency and to others it is one that has a right to attack white males for being klansmen as if they all generally are or were. Democrats attack on cultural issues that assure distractions from objective economic policy that requires solid progressive taxation to afford and that cannot be accomplished when their support from across the aisle fades away to non-existence. Grace matters; God’s grace is the sole reason that anyone is carried to salvation and eternity in heaven. God’s grace can also be helpful one would think in getting the economy to transition toward ecological economic policies that work.

Futurists and philosophers seeking the well-being of the nation and world tend to need to have a nation to work with rather than a global entity.  They cannot do well if culture agitators turn the citizens toward fighting against themselves. The most likely course of affairs for the U.S.A. to take politically these days is just to follow the money and conform everything politically to things that support the most concentrated wealth, so stirring up racial and other divisions to redistribute a smaller pie more equitably without reconfiguring economics inclusive of the rich that nothing much gets done. The Biden administration has a good chance of disappearing in four years without getting much done besides the cultural goals they have for-themselves.

It is possible to continue current and historical classical economics without much government intervention besides regulations that direct economic activity toward environmental ends. Sure those can be reversed if they were done by executive order yet if the economics become quite well established they may continue even if another dinosaur anti-ecosphere Republican takes the White House in 2024. The one thing Republicans could do to get more popular support would be to take the lead on environmental economic progress- it is a small concession to make and would place the party economically toward the front of the pack as they were during the industrial revolution rather than at the back as foot-dragging resistors to progress.

Gender uncertainty and pronouns about that in colleges and government

 In a time of increasing social demographic density a government may support population reduction via being agreeable to help pay for converting males into deluxe eunuchs with frills and chemical modification in addition to the surgery. Yet there is apparently a problem about what to title to use in reference to the former males; certainly they were men and did not become women by the conversion to deluxe eunuchs with some sort of artificial female receiving unit.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/pronouns-and-the-philosophy-professor-11617142536

One might refer to the former makes as Euns perhaps, or neo-fems yet sir is probably wrong as it is a derivative of sire or feudal lord stud. Eunuchs are not studs, and neither are they genetically female.

Genuine mixed gender people are the innocents in the mess created by those that are mentally confused and seek to convert their gender to upgrade their standard of living. People that really don’t have xx or xy chromosomes probably have the right to decide for themselves what they want to be, although of course some of the complication of xyy or whatever would tend to be weighted toward the democracy of letters for a determination objectively.

It would be great if people could spell themselves as easily as they misspell term papers and become what they wrote instantly. It just doesn’t seem to be the case that reality is willing to coincide with wishes in some cases.

National women’s month fades away

 American women and homosexuals assuredly are more aggressive than they were in former times, although listening to the leader of the national Center for Disease Control say that she was frightened and had a sense of doom wasn’t exactly inspiring to many. Sure results are more important than posing or superficialities yet a good leader should have qualities of good works and confidence-inspiring leadership.

Some day if the nation survives and is more than just a feminine subordinate employee of global plutocrats and socialist governments women may achieve real equality and dueling may return to legality in an over-populated world where everyone becomes unnecessary except for soteriological purposes. Networking and technology have made ad hoc organized petty crimes and collusion routine essential tools of the affirmative action set in their march to become a true dictatorship of the proletariat allegiant to global corporate. The natural feminine characteristic of gossip and networking socially serves the advance well. February was the month to commemorate George Washington and Abe Lincoln’s births now forgotten and people realize that if the nation were being remade Martha Washington would be CEO of a cherry pie corporation and no slaves would be compelled to harvest cherries- just foreign guest workers.

Chinese insouciance about chastisement is a function of toothless U.S. Gov policy

 One might wonder if the years of U.S. government nagging about China’s interminable violation of human rights would every be of any meaningful effect since Wall Street investments in China tend to trump U.S. federal hand waving. Chinese unconcern rising to insouciance in the island archipelago it is building up in the South China Sea and stocking with ships and implements for battle can’t be taken seriously when the Biden administration cannot even defend the southern U.S. border.

No one wants war of course for everyone is a loser with the excellence in weapons of mass destruction existing these days. I can even imagine a time when some oligarch will send drones to an inhabited planet to terminate the existence of potentially adverse biomass with photon torpedoes or some other unkind of particle beam device.

The Chinese victimize Muslim Uyghurs and Tibetans while trying to annex Taiwan into the eastern version of the evil empire; yet China has a two millennial old tradition of racial and territorial expansion that is difficult to counter without Mongols or some other kind of mechanized cavalry surging down from the high plains or serpents of war rising up from the sea. While great fiction dragons make wonderful stuff for movies practical political actions leading to an increase in democracy and individual human and social rights are more challenging to bring to China especially when the U.S.A. itself is finding new ways to censor free speech at social media sites and concentrate wealth in the  name of globalism.

Given the vast public debt the rich so kindly bestow upon the federal government it is no wonder U.S. government policy to chastise China for human rights violations is about as toothless as old people that fell through the cracks of dentistless Obamacare.

Antifa might just draft the rise of fascism to have a non-imaginary opponent

There was an actual historical fascist movement in Europe that fructified in the Nazi war on Europe, yet it never had too much traction in the United States or Mexico especially after the end of the Second World war. Never in my experience as an American more than 65 years has there existed a fascist movement in America of any substance. That is why the anti-fascist movement named Antifa is disorienting; one wonders who or what they really are protesting.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/antifa-armed-rioters-descend-on-oregon-state-capitol

Antifa seems to attend any popular left-leaning cause in order to build it up to a more volatile level and piggyback the protest upwardly. They are an accelerant of crisis rather than a catalyst, although as a willing and ready go-to organization for conflict in a mercenary kind of way perhaps they may be in the call-list for any number of people looking to create civil disorder in support of a given cause.

So long as the civil disorders are someplace else, I suppose many people aren’t too concerned with the interminable unrest and protest. With the election of 2020 over and decided mostly in favor of Democrats the continuing lunatic extreme activity of Antifa because even more of an enigma. Have they just named themselves Antifa to seem for public relations purposes to have a real opponent they need to fight against in order to promote a leftist-socialist-communist agenda? Do they receive international financial support from foreign intelligence organizations or rich individuals seeking to create strife in the United States?

My one concern is that Antifa in creating an imaginary enemy will draft the creation of a real fascist party in the United States. They seem to make the existence plausible and that plausibility supports normality as a worthy opponent to an organization of ill repute that supports communist-socialist causes.

My late father was a four-year veteran of the Second World war on the anti-fascist side, yet there is no way he in the world that he would have sympathized with Antifa.  He attended college in Salem Oregon. I attended a computer programming school in Portland Ore. I would be uncomfortable in that city if were inclined to go there with its inability to support a civil social environment that is peaceful, ordinarily.

Democrats have encouraged Antifa and other uncivil methods outside the usual political structures in normalizing disorder. Hillary Clinton sought to marginalize Trump supporters and the hatred of Trump and Republicans that voted for him continues to this day.

There are at least three kinds of Republican voters. One is the rich and the would be rich that support Wall Street programs and are globalists. Fundamentally they rule the party and, in many respects, share the same ideas as wealthy Democrats. Antifa protests don’t affect those Republicans at all- their policy choices continue and wealth is concentrated.

The second kind of Republican voter is a traditional moral conservative. They are adamantly opposed to liberal Democrat policies such as abortion, homosexual marriage and atheist indoctrination. Those people are not fascist for having morally conservative thought.

Some of that second group overlaps with a third group of people sometimes sharing membership with the first two yet with distinctive, differentiating ideas for-themselves. One shared idea may be anti-social spending, one differentiating idea may be that cluster of ideas that are ill-founded scientifically including no regard for global warming problems or environmental decline, over-population and so forth. The third group also share ideas about national security with the prior two including border sovereignty. The third group is not implicitly fascist either.

A fourth element would comprise fewer than 5% of the Republican party I would guess and does have racist beliefs. They would support extremism yet usually are or were fairly quiet historically. Even with racist beliefs they do not necessarily support a fascist political agenda. Fascists were so marginalized in America before the rise of Antifa that they seem to be trying to create that political agenda themselves.

There was racism and segregation in the American south of course that slowly and methodically ended. By the 1970s blacks comprised as much as 30% of American unions and the integration of the United States was well under way. There wasn’t a Hispanic migration problem. With the radical changes in the post-Vietnam war economics and outsourcing of industry even before the end of the Cold war the political and economic policies of the United States were rapidly changing and as some have noted, splintering.

Union membership declined with the end of quality union jobs outside government unions generally. The peaceful social evolution of the United States racially transformed gradually into agitation with so many restive groups of females and minorities-even homosexuals seeking empowerment through affirmative action and unsatisfied with that, with legislation to make resistance to increasing legal and economic advantages futile. The problem was that real wages for American white men had been arrested at the 1970s level with jobs being outsourced and the influx of illegal migrant workers adding to the general average stagnation of the income of the middle class and poor as the rich simply divided new revenue among all the new workers as well as the old at the same level as formerly went to mostly white men- profits were just concentrated to the rich.

That is why the Antifa organization seems like a cargo cult of politics to me ,with its oars in the water perhaps- heading toward Niagara Falls. Increasing racial conflict tends to terminate the challenge of building non-emotional non racism. Racism develops along economic lines for economic reasons rather than rational ones. Ending racism that isn’t legally structured or built in that make require civil disobedience to end requires non-hostile normal trade and commerce relations as people move about the nation and work.

President Biden’s not solving his border crisis kid crowding, virus vectoring facility challenge quickly

 President Biden is apparently failing to adequately manage the surge of child captives arrested while illegal infiltrating to the U.S.A. from Mexico. The problem is not simply that his policy encouraged development of the crisis, it also exposes the children to risky airborne viral contact from being packed in too close in captivity.

Children are some of the worst virus vectors in the U.S.A. Schools are incubators for the flu and other diseases that spread like wildfire typically so packing kids in side by side for sleeping on a floor while in captivity is an especially egregious way to prepare to infect all those kids with whatever is going around, on release to ‘relatives’ in the U.S.A. they will take their viral contagions with them.

I had some experience with sleeping side by side on the floor at a homeless shelter in Anchorage one December a decade ago with several people that experienced frostbite. I caught the flu and then pneumonia that stayed with me for the better part of the next ten years providing residual symptomatic reminders that very, very slowly faded away. It was said that everybody catches something at the over-crowded shelter. Who knows what kind of exotic viruses exist in Central America from whence the kids have travelled; they all share it like rem among themselves in their corral before being sent infected to sites across the U.S.A.

Why the United States is so slow at innovating domestic solutions to problems in a timely way is a mystery to me. Although I don’t support illegal migration to the U.S.A. nor providing thousands of teenage girls to the tender mercies of San Diego, developing and implementing competent, compassionate conservative processing of migrants should be a fundamental skill of governance.

Does the Eastern or Western New World Order have their oars in the water?

China and Iran recently signed a 25 agreement for cooperation with technology and economics. Russia and China have in recent years drawn closer together on economics and other works. Russia and Turkey have developed select military sales and cooperation. The relationships together seem to add up to being an informal international economic and military alliance in basic competition with the United States and whatever other nations are part of the western, N.A.T.O. and G-12 economic alliance.

The eastern alliance (I will call it that for lack of a better term easy to find) is a new world order politically speaking. The western new world order boiled down to being one dedicated to making the world homosexual and bisexually normalized and that in part reinforced the development of the counter-alliance.

The post-war new world order to the west was one of concentrated wealth and power gravitationally attracted to plutocrats reinforced by legions of minions from both major American parties, Europeans and others chasing after corporate jobs. The new world order of the west had accelerating micro-transistor gadgets driving networking, technology and economics. Atheism evolutionary doctrines reinforced the movement of traditional immorality toward the political center, yet extremism is difficult to make a new normal for natural reasons, and the effort unbalanced political sensibilities- a political rift energized in the west

The west’s judgment after-the-fact that winning the cold war meant that greed was o.k. dispensed with trying to build economic ties with Russia while it sanctioned Russian leaders for trying to keep lands that had been part of Russia from 250 to 1000 years part of Russia. Greed and the wish to put down Russian government resistance the homosexual agenda drove Russians to find alliance with China though carefully for China has long presented an implicit military threat of attacking and annexing the vast Siberian lands of the east. Russia, Turkey and Iran all tend towards substantial opposition to the western agenda of homosexuality, middle eastern policies including war while China is seeking to expand its sphere of influence in Africa, Central Asia, the Middle East, Pacific and elsewhere.

The unexpected new ad hic eastern alliance of course reminds one of Orwell’s novel 1984 with its interminable war between vast yet vague planetary states. One of the key differences is that the United States built up China’s economy, along with others, by investing there to produce items sent to the U.S.A. with a great markup to enrich Wall Street. China has become such an important part of the U.S. economy that it is too big to fail and can wield its economic power in forming planetary alliances with those countries the United State’s government policy has left to the tender mercies of international economics, sanctioned or ben at loggerheads with.

The Chinese-Iran 25-year partnerships seems to be a direct response to the Trump administration’s withdrawal from the Obama era arms control for cash agreement that gave a pathway to nuclear weapons development fructifying in 25 years. Maladroit U.S. policy that dropped the ball on developing good relations with post-Cold war Russia because of the comparative and short-sided lust for land in Ukraine, the Crimea and to exclude Russia from trade relations in Europe that would compete with American business coupled with the inability to return to good relations with Iran as swiftly as possible supported the rise of the present state of affairs that U.S. leadership isn’t likely to be able to quickly recognized, resolve in its favor or efficiently ignore. A policy of greed works against abstract thought and goals that are intelligent and just, necessary and utilitarian.

U.S. leadership isn’t too likely to reform its foreign or domestic policies enough to well keep the U.S.A. leading rather than following in the future. Concentrated wealth and loose border security, social media owned by the rich allowing free speech primarily only if it reinforces corporate power and an attitude that the U.S.A. does not make foreign policy errors prevails to arrest intelligent design of god policy formation. For some reason Ronald Regan got away with his goal of tearing down the wall and reducing nuclear weapons, yet subsequents have ditched the spirit of that part of Reagan policy except as it was the foundation for an expansion of greed.

A more powerful China and Iran in the Middle East does not mean that the incorrect hermeneutical work of eschatology that has Armageddon and Kittim is gathering strength. The post-millenniaist rather than the pre or amillennialist interpretation is correct; yet that does not preclude wars or planetary suicide through stupid international relations policies.

A more powerful China and Iran present more challenges to the Sunni kingdom and Sunni states from the Shi’a-Chinese Atheist axis that is somewhat ponderous. The U.S.A. is also working to alienate the Saudis presently because it hasn’t got female taxi drivers and its leader apparently order a journalist critic to be lured into the Turkish embassy, killed and hacked down into nice, easy-to-pack pieces. The King, sultan or whatever he is called may be sorry though he is recalcitrant about expressing his sorrow publicly.

Basically, the United States should establish a basic minimum income for its citizen of $10,000, secure its borders and allow zero illegal immigration and begin the graduation towards a 99% ecologically sustainable economic infrastructure and make political priorities that reinforce business with high eco-efficiency. As the world leader at sustainable economic the United States would have an alibi for existing at a higher standard of living than much of the rest of the world; it would help other nations to rise to a high standard of sustainable ecospheric compatible living.

The U.S.A. would need to have polices and laws that limit the size of corporations and the concentration of wealth in order to keep free enterprise and democracy vital. Patents would need to be limited to three years with 10% royalties to inventors after exclusivity expires to accelerate the infusion of technological change into economic actualization.

Corporations limited to 5000 workers would be free to make temporary relationships with other corporations to produce items that need more hands. No citizen could own shares of more than three corporations- economics need be about productivity rather than abstract financial skimming.

The United States should aggressively work to normalize relations with Russia and employ Reagan’s policy of constructive engagement that preceded the end of apartheid.

 To continue the adverse relations with Russia very long while continuing to enrich China and transfer technology to it will further weaken American standing in the world though it is flooded with illegal aliens providing cheap labor for Democrats

. Even if more women and minorities get government jobs at good pay with benefits and godless and immoral corporate policies make entertaining video, though there are select risks of war with the United States military becoming increasingly irrelevant with no one to fight with for political reasons. There is no guarantee that bad policy to destroy the environment will stop. There is no certainty that social security will not stop as one vote majorities decide to end the Roosevelt era program in order to afford to defeat the eastern alliance with 100 trillion dollars of public debt holding them back, or even that the dollar will not collapse because most of the money fled to bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.

If the United States had fought the Cold War alone against Russia and China while heavily investing in the Chinese economy it might have fared better and wrapped up the conflict quicker- or is that idea the wrong one?

Hate crimes and race strife will help form the news cycle the next few years as may gun bans in order to buy more time for politicians to focus on concentrating wealth and making America a better airport for globalists while providing good jobs and housing for illegal arrivals; nothing like good distractions to help implement the new world order.

Sweetie’s instant evolution accelerator- just five easy payments

 The idea occurred to me of the comedy product named Sweetie’s instant evolution accelerator. I can imagine the surfeit of political applications and sales pitches that could arise to help politicians ‘evolve’ their thought platforms from what they were to something else that is more suitable for increasing proplits.

Greater than hamburger helper, faster than a speeding one vote majority passage into law. I will let you imagine applications for-yourself.

The level four multiverse and Christian predestination

 Predestination is a difficult concept for many of the Christian faith. It implies that God has pre-determined the entire Universe and the role of people in it. Some in the secular have speculated that if the Universe is entirely deterministic no one is accountable for their actions- combined with rampant disbelief in God that is accompanied with a belief in the non-existence of objective moral laws made by the Creator. There is a good explanatory video on the concept of predestination by RC Sproul- a good theology instructor that explains the Christian point of view.

So I wanted to say that predestination seems almost necessary to me since God is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. The created Universe is comparable to a thought in the mind of God that he has had from start to finish and foreknows from eternity. In a way one might infer that the perfection of God has thought of everything that ever would be thought from eternity with Himself, for-himself. Others learn what glimpses of data God wills them to experience when that was in his design for whatever purpose He has and when the Holy Spirit and CEO Jesus Christ actualize.

There is a physical account of an entirely pre-determined multiverse. While I believe that every possible Universe that could ever exist in time already exists in the mind of God, the physicist Max Tegmark made a cosmological explanation of the way the Universe and multiverse may exist already actualized- every Universe that could possibly exist does exist already, fully from the beginning and end of its history.

I believe that concept may have originated with the late physicist Hugh Everett. Well, at any rate, Max Tegmark fully elucidated the multiverse and went into more complete description. I will post a video where Tegmark explains his concept of the multiverse. 

Tegmark also wrote a book titled The Mathematical Universe that is still quite a good read though a few years old. At the core he speculates the Universe and multiverse be actually be made of math, and that idea again is fine with me since God is a pretty good mathematician Himself I would think and math exists in mind rather than as physical objects.

The entire multiverse may be actualized from alpha to omega and it is just the minds of sentient beings that move through it switch with every thought to the appropriate location and universe. That sounds terribly complex and improbable perhaps, yet is may be that it actually is. The divine mechanics of God are likely to be more difficult to know for humans than quantum mechanics that are themselves challenging for non-scientists, non-physics majors ordinary folks.

Many people have difficulty juggling the idea of Christian determinism and physical determinism especially with the concept of quantum uncertainty thrown in, juxtaposed like a plank of space dimensions into time. The physical universe of energy, based on math or thought as a healthful pre-existing condition. One should enjoy it rather than wait for the ordinary authorities of education to be clued in to the point of making it doctrine.

Former CDC head says Covid 19 probably escaped Wuhan lab (and that indicates risks in bio modern bio-research)

 A former head of the Center for Disease control expressed the opinion that the Covid 19 virus escaped from a Wuhan lab that was researching various bat excrements nuggets for viral research. Regardless of the truth or falsehood of that vector of delivery there should not be antipathy toward the Chinese and American researchers that worked at the lab or the people of China nor that Chinese guy in Los Angeles who sells tacos to the hungry masses yearning for salsa and sweet and sour sauce on their hamburger. The virus should be viewed as a test of the planetary emergency response capacity toward lethal pathogens that may arise in the future given that their is a surfeit of research with new technology going on every continent of your basic Earth.

One day there will probably be instructions describing how to  build your own lethal pathogen distributed widely on the dark web under a special damp rock in a dank sub-basement someplace that will allow the second year biology student to assemble his own designer virus. It is just a matter of time until someone yields to the temptation one would think and a perennial ostrich outlook might not be the best response.
