Why mankind was created (by God) and is responsible for the human condition

God created everything so why not intelligent beings? He apparently found that they cannot obey His will (in the garden). Instead mankind (Adam and Eve) were willful and disobedient. What to do with willful people that had ate of the tree of knowledge and would eventually eat of the tree of immortality? God shortened their days (life span) and put them into a thermodynamic world where they had to work to input energy and had to reproduce sexually like the animals. That was all a consequence of the original sin that required correction. So all mankind has the problems of mortality and is condemned for being so willful and disobedient. If people are called and saved by the Lord Jesus Christ then they can have their sin nature cleansed or shielded from the perfect God’s view.

In a divine economy how could sin be tolerated for eternity? Hence hell and etc. From I Corinthians 6 “9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” and Thessalonians 5:6-9 “6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, “

Socrates, Plato and Aristotle; waiting to be canceled

Some people would like to cancel Socrates, Plato and Aristotle became they didn’t seem to support democracy. The Athenian democracy had a lot of slaves. Plato or Socrates supported the oligarchy rather than the demos, and the Romans developed the republic reasonably well while Greece became overrun, It hadn’t occurred to me though that anyone was thinking about cancelling Socrates so we are left with the three stooges in regard to political philosophy In an age when empires were the norm; even the Republic was very much to the left. It’s the sort of thing that the radicals that wrote the Magna Charta might have thought about.

I asked someone how many universes can dance on the head of a zero-dimensional singularity. He might have replied; ‘God knows’. Maybe it’s an intersectional concept, whereat one awakes in the will of the One.

Maybe everyone is an economic prisoner of the federal reserve bank chained to the social ladder economy as mute approved beings-of-interest watching the shadows of billionaires cross high above, trying to interpret the weird shapes.

Platonic forms and Multiverse space

 Plato’s realm of forms is about pure, essential ideas that are like blueprints for everything actualized in any universe. Ideas can fit in a thought of God. Plotinus named God ‘ the One”, and elaborated the realm of forms in his book named The Enneads

Ideas of spirit exist eternally for The One. Yet like an entire universe that is designed and static in a zero-dimension singularity, no space-time is required to contain it. Space-time is part of the kernel of the Universe that unfolds dimensionally- though one wonders about the time in which time is encapsulated at a singularity.

Every quantum form is pre-determined from alpha to omega in any possible universe among the multiverse of possibilities God deems possible. An infinite number of thoughts that comprise forms are known unto the omniscient One and have always existed even as the sentient beings that occur within them wonder about space-time and the quanta and qualia of a Multiverse and of God likening it unto a simulation.

More philosophical comments

Much of the political conflicts of the USA occur because people don’t care about evidence or faith. They have a will to believe and do so as a part of being a member of a group of like minded people. The race riots aren’t about faith and peaceful change does not invariable follow YouTube video evidence of a police crime, neither does exculpatory evidence send protesters and rioters home. In some cases there is a lot of evidence to support faith and in others people have faith that their evidence is valid, comprehensive and uncontroverted by unknown facts. People aren’t generally working matters of belief and politics as logicians replete with lifetimes of learning and wisdom. Consider abortion, homosexual marriage, global warming, ecosphere decay, tax rates and attacks on faith. in God- People tend to reinforce what they want to believe and force social morality to conform to desire and political preferences

The evidence of the good book is very good. Even jurors need faith that their verdict is true if they are honest. Einstein said that he just wanted to know the thoughts of God- the rest are details.
Philosophical certainty is difficult to attain
Socrates said that he knew that he knew nothing
Epistemology and pragmatism lead one toward dead reckoning judgements of necessity. Certainty or even true knowledge as of The Timaeus or Tractatus Logico Philosophicus and The Blue and Brown books leave one with words about words and short of knowledge of things for themselves or Kant’s noumenon. Faith, reason and inference lead some to belief in God. The problem of the criterion as Chisolm mentioned, afflicts all judgments of sentients embedded atop quantum entangled energy as mass in the Higgs field
Interestingly the sub-luminal status of. otherwise classless two dimensional energy packets when not getting that important 3rd dimension in the Higgs field may be the reason why time is experienced at all

Jesus said to let the dead bury the dead

It was an oblique reference to the need to be born again. Complex topic.

If one finds a well ordered and logically put together system, universe, multiverse or machine; that does not imply that it wasn’t designed. Subtle and infinitesimal quantum uncertainties may enliven art and being like pictures at an exhibition.

There are numerous truth theories. I like correspondence theory and disquotation theory. Truth is about relationships of words. The sole being in itself that is true is God it might be said. For God is truth and anything else contingent and relative

A few philosophical comments…

If one finds a well ordered and logically put together system, universe, multiverse or machine- that does not imply that it wasn’t designed. Subtle and infinitesimal quantum uncertainties may enliven art and being like pictures at an exhibition.

Ok so God is omnipotent. He has made every possible universe in every possible form

and stage in his thought. Everything is possible for him that he wills possible.

In one universe a rock is movable and in another it isn’t. Every infrastructural form of everything can be super-positioned like quanta in all possible lines God determines possible.

Modal logic allows one to populate a universe with whatever forms and relations one prefers, including temporal positions. One may make their own system of logic (ref Elements of Logic by W.V.O. Quine) concerning where and what is possible in possible locations. It is a mistake to assume that a particular logic structure exists in all places universally, as it is wrong to assume there is one universal time across a multiverse except in relation to eternal God.

If a universe can be defined as space-time with the same physicals laws or patterns of order, thought and logic in that area likely conform preponderantly to the forms that function in that space-time. An eternal being whom constructs those systems from eternity might be regarded as the unmoved mover by sentient contingent beings moving about.

Quine refuted the dogma of empiricism that just empirical statements about the world had valid data, and that wasn’t subjective. He showed that all statements have a subjective element including scientific

Quine was one of the best logicians and philosophers of logic of his time

In Word and Object he examines subjective epistemology. In Ontological Relativity he examines modal logic word lexicons from a nominalist perspective.

Someone cleverly noted that the thesis-antithesis dialectic is a good way to trick people into doing stuff as reactionaries. Besides that, the dialectic has numerous applications via analogy as stimulus-response loops, natural algorithmic cycles of increase, challenge response and baloney.

Hegel thought the or a world spirit was trying to realize itself in history. Logically though humans had realized themselves in history for at least 100000 years and the or a spirit of the universe isn’t retarded like a drunk trying to wake up after a binge

The spirit probably pre-existed the universe

Human wickedness and many other issues follow after the fall. I believe Adam and Eve when found unable to follow the will of God flawlessly were sent onto a containment facility known as the Universe today with its second law of thermodynamics, births toil etc in quest of energy and pleasure.

Human nature is depraved and the elect are saved through grace. Because God is eternal and Universes temporal the individual soul has a chance for salvation and salvage from the human condition

If uncorrected wicked humans as eternal spirits could run amuck plenty- hence the need for a temporal universe and a chance to sort things out.

I am not certain about nihilism being a first-person activity or just a point of view. The idea that reality is an illusion and belief in God is a heresy are part of Buddhism and consistent with nihilism in some ways, yet not in others. political nihilism could be a practical effort simply to destroy a government and leave nothing to replace it, or no one, and that would differ from anarchy. I am not sure that meaninglessness is necessary for nihilism. Consider people that hate western civilization and believe that it should be destroyed- they are partial nihilists if they want to annihilate the traditional American way and replace it with something else, foreign and non-specific, and plain nihilists if they want to leave scorched Earth and let the environment recovery (even if short sighted because without engineers to safely shut down all the nuclear plants and chemical dumps the environment would be a mess for quite a number of years left to themselves when they broke down.

Anti-particles just have an opposite spin. That is anti-matter spin is a mirror reverse image of matters spin. So anti MC could be like anti matter and annihilate MC or matter when it is incompatibly infused with it

Maybe it’s like forcing a left threaded device into a right threaded device thereby breaking both objects.

That reminds me about the one concerning the Universe meeting it’s long lost anti-universe rival…

Max Tegmark’s book ‘The Mathematical Universe’ describes a Multiverse up to a level 4 Multiverse, and further posits that pure math may be the basis of everything, literally. Tegmark makes a mathematical Universe Hypothesis (MUH). Great book to read. https://www.amazon.com/Our-Mathematical…/dp/0307599809

Sartre writes about the reef of solipsism in Being and Nothingness. It is part of the human condition as an individual observer embedded in the Higgs field temporally.

Bishop Berkeley wrote about idealism in The Three Dialogues of Hylas and Philonous. The human experience could be just an idea of God or a simulation. Berkeley probably was inspired by and developed Descartes’ Meditations.

. have you never read that? it started the thought examined logically in the first person school rolling.

https://oll.libertyfund.org/…/descartes-the-method…

Jesus wasn’t nihilist in bringing the end of the old covenant. He said he came to fulfill the law, not destroy it. When the prophet Jeremiah said that one day the laws of God would be written on the hearts and minds, that occurred with the work of Jesus Christ. Marx on the other hand was raised with Jewish ideas of millennialism and seems to have fused Feurbach’s atheism, Hegelianism and Darwinism with Zionism and socialism. As has been said a million times, Marx was a great sociologist and a rather bad political philosopher. His economic analysis of England was pretty good and the corrections he envisioned poor and sparse. He had strengths and weaknesses in equal measure. Not all political or religious change is nihilistic. Maybe Kropotkin’s Russian anarchism was neo-nihilistic. Trying to understand Christianity without faith in Jesus as the Son of the Trinity will result in misunderstanding much. A spiritual transformation is to occur and one must love God, and thy neighbor as thyself. That does not imply lazy, corrupt or moral relativism. Socialism as an economic system of the state differs much from free enterprise and self-directed work. The volunteerism and unselfishness of Christians would tend to cap capitalist acquisition and invest excess profit in social development. A Christian society should be economically more egalitarian yet does not require state socialism. Socialism can be an oppressive, atheist dictatorship. Hitler rose to power as leader of the German socialist workers part with help from a large majority of former socialists in the storm troopers. Any sort of tribe or group can use socialist economics. The challenge is to defend individual rather than collective ‘rights’ the devil would defeat everyone if it could, in the details.

The ultimate good (poem)

Wonders of the wood cut

slashed like Wall Street sales
gone over the edge
with multiverses of logic
structured with every possible example

  Of those that do and those that don’t
attack others with a variety of druthers
crumbling mountains
casting them into the sea
with talus slopes

  Eternity shapes time
movements with space
lights with deoptimalized plots
running over narrow rails
the weight, it’s trained

  So nothing remains of spring
flowers casting shadows on wind
lawns cut and memories of rhymes before
with the perfection of science
romanticism and emotion died down

Being and nothingness present
choices of mass and energy configurations
with spirit flowing contingency about
like self-aware nomenclature
waiting on the ultimate good.

Let cruise ships with vaccinated passengers work this year

Instead of banning cruise ships to Alaska in 2021 the CDC should put away the blunt instrument and let vaccinated passengers go ahead and visit Alaska. Crude, mass economic punishment is as useless as recommending bleach used internally to kill Covid 19.

 The CDC should put away it’s weapon of mass economic destruction and recommend that cruise ships with vaccinated passengers go ahead this year. Vaccinated passengers are not a Covid 19 danger to American cities at all unless the CDC is fibbing about the effectiveness of the vaccines and those inoculated will perish like overripe lotus blossoms with instant ghonobowla.

The cruise ship business is an important element of many coastal cities that shouldn’t be locked down until the CDC sobers up to realize some vaccines work rather well.

Good Russian-American relations is necessary for balanced global policy

The Democrat party sycophant media makes objective opinion difficult to get out to the public. They saturate the nation with corporate sales promotion news items such as serve the concentration of wealth best. They rely on the banking monopoly of the Federal Reserve (a private bank) to send trillions and trillions to the richest Americans and banking confreres and trickle down a pittance to the poor that don’t even see blood pressure medicine from Obamacare or Medicare. That isn’t a good supporting infrastructure fort democracy at all and sideways policies like avoidance of defending the borders adequately or getting on like gangbusters with Russian and President Putin are supplanted with better daily hate memos and soap operas of O.J. trials or the Chauvin trial with Rep Waters encouraging riots if the verdict doesn’t go her way.

The nation has a problem that began with Bill Clinton in failing to understand post-Cold War Russia adequately to have common sense about the Ukraine problem. At least half of the Ukraine was always Russian necessarily since Russia began there a thousand years ago. Russians would never be content to give it up, and President Bill should have known that and not levered it away from the nascent new Russian state via the C.I.S. or community of embarrassing name sissies that were weak without a live nuclear threat to the west and armies ready to roll in national defense. It was really no way to treat a sort of former ally that helped defeat not only Hitler and the Nazis, but the Mongols to- at least dulling their advance, as they did with the Muslim surge following the rise of the Turkish empire- as well as Napoleon. If not for Russia Europe and the U.S.A. might be speaking Turk-French-Mongol-German, and that would be very bad for the prospects of Doge coin.

Because the ethics of the U.S.A. have merged with those of predatory capitalism from Wall Street seeking after immediate satisfaction and short-term profits (not good neighborliness at all) the concept of levering away some land that has always been an integral part of Russia-even when Europe was still in the dark ages and the U.S.A. wasn’t even conceived, is unavoidable. Yet statecraft requires intelligence and ethics different from that of capitalists and President Biden should know that.

He has decided not to send the navy to crash into the Black Sea to interdict Russian naval support for an effort by President Putin to restore some Russian presence right to the Dnepr River where a border might reasonably be maintained amicably more or less satisfying most except western land grab speculators. President Biden should recognize the strategic interest the U.S.A. has in being partners rather than adversaries with Russia economically, politically and socially- as well as in joint space missions. The opportunity cost of not being best political buds with Russia is a great strategic blunder that unites most of the world against the U.S.A., who cannot really rely on Europeans for much in the long run for numerous reasons. They are rather piratical first and pursue their self-interest with as much propaganda effort as N.P.R.

President Putin may seem to have much political power in his own nation- yet the Russian constitution is written to provide for a Super-Presidency. The Roman Republic appointed a dictator in times of war and then returned to normality when the crisis was over. Russia has been attacked from all sides for a thousand years and invaded numerous times. During the post-Cold war reorganization what else should have been expected if the United States chose to resume an adversarial relationship because they believed they could bully a weak Russia?

It is amazing to me that national leadership except for President Reagan could be so blind about long-run strategic American interests. They seem like a lot of losers that prefer war to prosperity unless they exclusively possess all wealth. Without good Russian-American relations the world politically is unbalanced and divided. It may be readily exploited by special interests that can thwart globally important ecological and economic requisites for reform. Even racism can be stirred up and exploited as a diversion politically, and that simply lets the concept of reform rot.

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.

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.
