In an essay by DEAN CLANCY, we take a closer look at what money is, what the US Constitution says about money, and why it is important to today’s political events. About a ten minute read. a number of things I’ve not seen discussed elsewhere before.
There are a couple of angels on things there that are first for me, such as : “5. Fiat money notes (‘bills of credit’) are forbidden.” Equating fiat money with bills of credit is interesting.
Overall, well worth a read if you are into money or politics.
FWIW, at the current price of silver, $20 in constitutional dollars of silver is worth about $380 in Federal Reserve Notes.
Some things, such as optical illusions, can hard to see at first, but once seen are clear. I came across a very clearly written post that connects some of the political / activist left’s action plan in a way that makes a whole lot of sense. The scariest part of it is that most of the average people pushing each of these things are basically good, well-meaning people, they will not see it, and think they are unrelated, and have no idea how much damaged they are doing. I’m including the full text as well as the links to the original posts, as it is more than likely one or both at some point will get nuked at some point.
I have, and have read, Meerloo’s “Rape of the mind” which is one of the books this draws heavily on. Very good, if rather depressing. This is an excellent video, with some good sources, not very long, and interesting artwork. It’s clear what they are talking about, without explicitly saying it and getting banned by EweTube. at about te 15 minute mark, when they are talking about isolation and desperation and offing a way out, that’s where we are now.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis takes two forms: that language determines thought or that language influences thought. The former is a much stronger view because it states that one is incapable of understanding a concept for which the language has no name (it also implies that there is no thought without language). There is no empirical evidence supporting the strong version and considerable evidence that thought can proceed without benefit of language. However, the weak version plausibly suggests that different languages can “carve up” the world into different ways — or, put another way, that conceptual thinking can be shaped and constrained by available linguistic categories. As Whorf put it, “We cut nature up, organize it into concepts, ascribe significance as we do, largely because we are parties to an agreement to organize it in this way – an agreement that holds throughout our speech community and is codified in the patterns of our language”.
This is why controlling language is one of the first things tyrants and those who would control and manipulate other do. Co-opt and corrupt the language, and you can control the thoughts of the people more easily.
Sometimes you fall down a rabbit hole and find all kinds of stuff. Maybe it’s things you know a little bit about, and you find out there is more science behind it than you thought, maybe it is a totally new thing that makes you go “uhhhh.. huh?” So here is a list of books and papers that I’ve come across recently that look at some part of the world in a totally different way than conventional wisdom, all put in one place just because reasons… Continue reading Books on stuff→
She has a pretty impressive resume. The Powers That Be have tried to destroy her, discredit her, etc. She’s got a lot of background into on vaccinations and disease in general, things that lead us to where we are today with the Wuhan Flu. Here’s an interview, and then a list of books that may have to add to my ever-growing reading list.
I came across this on Social Galactic. Fascinating video. A two hour rant about who really runs things, etc. He says it’s the life insurance companies. Has a lot of history and science and economics, some really good, some really out there. But a very good presentation.
Might sound redundant, but it is not. A “History Book” is one that attempts to expound the events and possibly explain the connections and “whys” between them, so that the reader has a better understand of what has happened in the past and how we got here. Sometimes our understanding of past events changes when new information comes to light. This is generally a good thing, though sometimes more (but still incomplete) information confuses things from the initial simple or largely speculative view.
However, there are also people trying to rewrite history and make the ‘wrong” things go away, and constantly invent or “reinterpret” things in order to push a particular narrative. This is NOT good. It is something the SJW and Marxists do a lot.
so it is expected that what history books say will, to some degree, change over time. But the whole-sale revisions going on now are all the wrong type. So I think it might be good for people to make it a goal to accumulate or copy or locate or translate or make availible older history texts to that it is not lost. For example I came across one the other day – US History – in a used book store printed in 1904. That means there were still a considerable number of Civil War survivors around to point out flaws. Any bets I discover something in it that is not popular in today’s books?
