What is progress?Practical consensus would be a good starting point

the beginning to the end of free speech started today

The persecution of Tommy and others is nothing New the roots of it go back to post 9/11 in its current form and the war on terror and various legislation surrounding that event.

As the Internet has developed and as it has become apparent that the Journalistic Stars/correspondents and Anchors are very much challenged by Below the Line commentary and also shoe string citizen Journalism the War of 2 Fake News Began in earnest, this doubling down has happened several times.

The method of Censorship is subtle and effective and is a sort of death of democracy and free speech by a thousand cuts.

Self-censorship is the ultimate Goal, the objective is for we the Farmed Slaves to believe that we are free and to love our overlords in a Globalist Stockholm syndrome.

Is anybody safe?

are hands down the best I have read, I disagree personally with a number of Bruce’s conclusions and I am Optimistic and he Pessimistic but his diagnosis is I think as close to being on target as it is possible to be.

Some background to Bruce is well worth knowing ,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Charlton
From 2003 to 2010, Charlton was the solo-editor of the journal Medical Hypotheses, published by Elsevier.[4] After HIV/AIDS denier Peter Duesberg published a paper in Medical Hypothesis arguing that “there is as yet no proof that HIV causes AIDS”, the journal came under fire for its lack of peer review. The paper was withdrawn from the journal citing concerns over the paper’s quality and “that [it] could potentially be damaging to global public health.” Elsevier consequently revamped the journal to introduce peer review, firing Charlton from his position as editor, due to his resistance of these changes.[5]

At October 2012, a worldwide campaign including 198 researchers published a critical paper defending Bruce G. Charlton and the idea of editorial review.[6]

Prof. Charlton is a rare Brilliant Man who is prepared, to tell the truth against his own financial interests.

To with this excellent Corbett Report on the Crisis in Science.

The techniques of shutting down dissent are not dis-similar for science ., or any discourse, in fact the technique of marginalisation is actually ubiquitous

The whole picture is no so much a Rabbit Hole Gordie as a Warren and a labyrinthine one at that.

Ariadne Gifted a Ball of string to Theseus
Minos and Theseus
Since ancient Greek myths are passed down through oral tradition, many variations of this and other myths exist.[6] According to an Athenian version of the legend, Minos attacked Athens after his son was killed there. The Athenians asked for terms, and were required to sacrifice seven young men and seven maidens to the Minotaur every seven or nine years. One year, the sacrificial party included Theseus, the son of King Aegeus, who volunteered to come and kill the Minotaur. Ariadne fell in love at first sight, and helped him by giving him a sword and a ball of thread (μίτο της Αριάδνης ‘Ariadne’s thread’), so that he could find his way out of the Minotaur’s labyrinth.

We are all bound together by the same ball of string as Tommy sometimes it feels as if we are in a tug of war with those who are seeking the same ends as ourselves although with seemingly different Means and ends.

I guess as I have gone down this rhetorical and metaphorical avenue a little of the Delphic Oracle might be a good way of leaving that previously stated thought to develop.

The Slog.

Bland consensus is a bad thing. But utilitarian consensus would be vastly preferable to the opposing armed camps of ideological nonsense we see before us today.

I do not consider myself to be a progressive. In the eyes of progressives, that statement renders me a scumfascistbigotracisthardrighter. Which kind of goes to show that not many progressives know (let alone think about) what progress is.

I do not consider the word ‘progressive’ to be anything other than retrogressive thinking. It is arrogant, totalitarian, and on the same level of fascist incoherence as ‘politically correct’. The assumption of all those who favour such terms is they know what’s best….and anyone who argues is [insert insult of choice here].

Etymologically, it is hard to argue with that observation. And yet, it has been the most defining feature of the infantile foot-stamping that has gone on in Britain from disgruntled Remainers since 2016.

In honor of Robert Darnton

“Taste is like philosophy. It belongs to a very small number of privileged souls … It is unknown in bourgeois families, where one is constantly occupied with the care of one’s fortune”. # ( https://bit.ly/2GWWl3b ) In the words of Darnton, Voltaire “thought that the Enlightenment should begin with the grands”.[52] The historian cites similar opinions from d’Alembert and Louis Sébastien Mercier.[53] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminism

Voltaire Foundation

Robert Darnton Robert Darnton in 2016

This month Oxford University will award an honorary doctorate of letters to Robert Darnton, a (if not the) leading cultural historian over the past 50 years of eighteenth-century French publishing, book trade and literary culture.

I count myself as one of the many scholars inspired by his works. The Great Cat Massacre (1984) was among the first scholarly works I was assigned to read upon beginning postgraduate study. As a doctoral student, I benefited from his advisement (as a doctoral student at Columbia, I enrolled through a university exchange in his Princeton seminar on ‘The Social History of Ideas in Eighteenth-Century France’). And now as a senior research affiliate of the Voltaire Foundation and General Editor of Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment, I take particular interest in expressing on behalf of the Voltaire Foundation our collegial pride, admiration, and respect for Professor Darnton on…

In Short, all have challenging domestic agendas.

The biggies are not domestic agendas but International Ones.

If the Security Council meeting the main advocates supporting the action were The Netherlands, and Sweden both have been pushing the Syria Bashing.

Sweden has the oldest Central Bank and The Netherlands is, of Course, the beginnings of the modern worlds Capitalist system. The Colonialö/Imperialist International Banking Project runs strongly through this whole thing.

Israel has been fairly quiet I have news feeds from Jewish Chronicle and Haaretz the Israeli News Paper they have been observing keenly but apart from the Domestic Anti Semitism Schtick in Uk and of course the Israeli Strikes on Iranian Targets, Israel has a very Low profile here, in fact barely garner a mention?

Here is Gets Very Complicated indeed.

Israel is also a player with the Gas question in respect of the Leviathan fields and other fields in the Eastern Medetaranian this also brings Egypt into the picture. Of Course, Libya and Iraq come into the question from PetroDollar and Energy aspects of the question and lead back to General Wesley Walker.

Showing the way out of the bottle, Wittgenstein or Epictetus?

In Such times as these John, I usually reach for the Enchiridion. Epictetus and his handy handbook reminds us all to Stick to our own knitting and do the right thing, eventually every one cottons on ( and it only takes 5% of us ( see Erica Chenoweth’s Work),
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erica_Chenoweth

Their team identified over 200 violent revolutions and over 100 nonviolent campaigns. Twenty-six percent of the violent revolutions were successful, while 53 percent of the nonviolent campaigns succeeded. Moreover, looking at change in democracy (Polity IV scores) indicates that nonviolence promotes democracy while violence promotes tyranny.
In addition every campaign that got active participation from at least 3.5 percent of the population succeeded, and many succeeded with less. All the campaigns that achieved that threshold were nonviolent; no violent campaign achieved that threshold.[4]

Authentic Discourses on Decisions to Act.
A golden Rule in folklores Canon
holds what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the Gander
do unto others that which to you would be done
thus applied in discussion, we should always avoid slander.
Leave at the first introduction
the habits of Authority and induction
When those listening seem deaf to what you tell
refrain if you please from poisoning the well
if your working hypothesis requires certitude
refrain from tailoring cloth that renders the emperor nude
If to your point, you wish others to allude
refrain from a hypocritical sneering attitude.
When your correspondent appeals to evidence
consider their sources, were they well meant?
In all matters, skepticism will serve you with equivalence
and always remember to mistrust the Government.
“man müsse das Volk stets in Armuth erhalten, damit es gehorsam bleibe.”(2)
