Scientists Decipher the Neural Code For Faces. They used 50 dimensions to improve face recognition. Some say that is a breakthrough. I see the real story as there is more to perception in the human brain than seeing objects in 3 dimensions. The mind possibly uses more information than classic empirical arguments suggest to perceive reality.
The pretense of freedom people think they have is about to expire soon. More people die every few months to gang violence, traffic accidents, and certain drugs than what you see in London. Instead, how you respond to events like you see in London plays on your patriotism. Manipulates your patriotism to make you accept having your rights taken away.
Once that happens, smart PhD’s will be put into position to apply their intellect to tell you how to live. They won’t do this directly, but will be empowered by various officials who in turn are empowered by powerful people giving them the marching orders, “control this society.”
You may think you can think what you want, but you are mistaken. WikiLeaks revealed more than certain groups were comfortable with people knowing. Controlling the Internet means no more WikiLeaks, no more discussions about social and political issues. No more knowledge about how things really work which can threaten the pursuit and expansion of power. The domination of people and their conversion to drone like people who resemble the real thing.
The Cold War isn’t finished. I am nearly done with a 2013 book by William Blum that sheds light on many topics I was apparently mis-educated about earlier in life. I see parallels between his research findings on civics topics and today’s events. The Cold War is still on, but it is not what you may have been told.
If William Blum’s research is correct, then there is a possible reason for the Russian Interference in 2016 Election story. Who knows if that story is true, but true or not, it has shaped up into a finely delivered distraction designed to sweep up even smartest journalists, politicians, and Intel investigators.
The story may have substance. Yet, even if people pay a price, their public disgrace would still be another diversion. The goal is still the same.
Privatize major parts of the Federal government. Tranfer control of government operations to private industry. Cede control over government functions to corporations who would then have more direct management over how civil services work day-to-day. Long-term, trillions of dollars in tax revenue would flow from the public directly into private hands. Workers, in a sense, would indirectly give money back to the companies they work for while losing more income to more fees to pay for government services sponsored by and operated by those corporations.
People may not find that appealing, but this will happen anyway. However, even though there is nothing anyone can credibly do about it, at least this makes sense of news that is otherwise confusing. William Blum has researched and gathered some pretty good information that makes you far more informed about what is going on in the world.
Mr. Blum has even identified part of the fuel for this process. Certain schools turn out advanced graduates who use their skills to advance this enterprise. That is the manner in which this process is systematically executed. Smart people able to make unassailable arguments for programs whose undetectable effect is to undermine the interests of peoples at home and abroad.
Finally, you realize that opposing government systems that are not capitalist is not done because something is wrong with those systems. Instead, you realize that trying to make other countries embrace capitalism has one goal among many. Change a society’s mindset from one of resource conservation and preservation into a mindset of indiscriminate resource extraction and release. That will eventually impoverish that country and persons to the benefit of the one who defines and controls the capitalist ideology. When the resource transfer is this disproportionate, the ones guided into this situation becomes weaker over the long-term until they reach a point of unrecoverable disadvantage. Ruling over persons in such situations becomes far easier. That is what the Cold War and the global war is all about.
Single-payer health care bill passes California Senate, heads to Assembly. I don’t trust the health care establishment in general. However, at least a single-payer system potentially provides the option to seek the right health care and possibly escape a bad health care situation. People do get bad doctors. People do get bad health treatment. That does happen and it can greatly discourage you from getting the health care you need when you either have given up on the health care system or see better options for treatment as out of reach.
The decision to do single-payer, despite the uncertainty around funding, is a true leap of faith. The people involved are essentially saying, they don’t know how they are going to do this, but it is the best way to pursue quality health care for all.
Canadian nurse confessed to killing ‘mean’ patients. You can’t always be sure how well care is delivered. Many questions remain concerning the events described in the news article. A situation that shows another way trust and life can be easily compromised.
Prince William and Prince Harry Speak Out on Mom Diana’s Death: ‘We Couldn’t Protect Her’. Diana Frances would be immensely proud of her sons, how they turned out and the prospect of grandchildren. Their sharing of their mother’s life, causes, and cares has kept her memory alive and increased the honor of her name. They are a great example in how to honor those who bring you into the world. Those best able to show you the greatest love another can show. That love which only a mother can bestow.
