Covid politics is a macroscopic example of a psycholinguistic problem which occurs microscopically in all interpersonal relations

The ways we talk and don’t talk about covid are similar in kind to the ways we talk and don’t talk interpersonally. This fact is as painful in all important interpersonal relationships as it is painful on a national and global scale concerning covid.

Interpersonally, it is extremely difficult for almost all people to examine psycholinguistically important moments in real-time if they have not been trained or self-taught. Similarly, it is extremely difficult for almost all people to examine almost any aspect of covid if they do not share mostly the same conclusions.

Psychologically humans exist on a spectrum that grades from the unique microscopic moments of unique individual experience to the macroscopic landscape shared by many individuals belonging to a psychological collective. Just as a psychological collective can be created (or discovered) by naming it so individual moments can be defined by individuals naming them, often incorrectly.

Unique individual moments can also be predefined by a psychological collective. Many individuals perceive human life to be precisely that, something defined by a collective. It is very difficult for many individuals to see this and almost impossible for most individuals to be able to talk about this in real-time, real-world situations that are psychologically stressful and thus also psychologically important.

If you lament the disaster of our national covid dueling monologues, stop and consider that your important individual interpersonal relationships suffer similar problems. Dueling monologues arise when microscopic dialogues do not happen, which they rarely do anywhere in the world throughout all history. This problem is big and small, ecompassing the size of individual lives and entire human epochs. It is founded on the psycholinguistic difficulty of talking about talking as it is happening without being distracted by habits, customs, manners.

When talking about talking as it is happening happens, almost everyone becomes confused or angry or dismayed. You have to see this problem. Then figure out how to deal with it. You can do this in your own way (please report back to me if you are successful). Or you can do it through FIML practice which is described in many posts on this site. If you can see what FIML corrects, then the basic description of how to do FIML will be easy to understand. If you can do basic FIML many times, you will share a fundamental skill with your partner that will make your lives much better.

If FIML looks easy but you can’t do it, you probably don’t understand it. If you think you already are doing it, maybe but I doubt it. If you can’t make any sense of it, talk about it with your partner. Once you see what FIML is, you will love it because it frees you from a most basic and common form of human misunderstanding.

Smelly little bitches seek to silence real scientists and thinkers

Twitter Disinformation

1. There were only 13 experts in the group.
2. They did not ‘call them out for misinformation’ – they were asking for removal of their right to speak.

Human Rights Criminals

Nasty little shits; notice that Steve Kirsch frequently offers to debate these types and has even offered them $2 million to debate him, but these nasty little bitches all run and hide, block his account, scurry back into the shadows from whence they came. These are the parasitic soldiers of KOBK warfare. They are “gammas” in the worst sense. They have been groomed and promoted by a generation of gamma parasites that came before them. In turn, they will groom and promote the next generation of parasites coming up behind them. Each generation of parasites in this descent into parasitic hell is worse than the one before—weaker, nastier, pettier—because each mentoring generation always brings in toadies even weaker and nastier than themselves; their shriveled egos cannot bear anyone stronger. This process describes the decline and fall of the West, particularly USA, very well and must be considered in all histories of our rapid downfall. To fully understand this process, think of it as an evolving culture of parasitism, a culture that has to be nasty and shitty to justify its parasitism on others. Parasites enjoy what they are doing because that is what “feeds” them. ABN

Informative thread on the psychology, sociology, and decline of the Big Tech work force

I work in Big Tech. A name you would know and have probably used before.

Wanted to give a rundown of what it's like from the inside right now.

Obviously insanely radically leftwing. BLM/LGBTQ. Trans flags hanging in office. Pronouns stated before meetings. Special affiliation groups for everyone but white men. All what you'd expect.

But COVID/WFH has totally broken people.

They are fundamentally weak, often with no social support outside of work.

They're the people with no children, no spouse. Only a dog or cat for emotional support.

There's constant talk, even now, about how hard things are for everyone. Often meetings start with going around the room to ask "How is everyone feeling?"

Literally everyone else went on sad rants about their lives. "I'm so MAD a white supremacist shot 3 black men in Kenosha!"

It's toxic. When it got to me, I said "Good." and then a (((lady engineer))) literally proposed that we should not be allowed to answer the question positively. I shit you not.

I think it hurt her that I wasn't as miserable as her.

She made some argument about "vulnerability". These people not only want you weak, they want you to expose your vulnerabilities to them so they can exploit them.

They may not intend this explicitly, but whatever twisted ideology they worship ends with this result.

So back to morale. Everyone is demoralized.

Bonhoeffer‘s Theory of Stupidity

Suggested extracurricular viewing for most members of SCOTUS, all top health officials, all White House staff, and most members of Congress. I doubt our Resident and Vice Resident will be able to understand any of it, so no reason to suggest it to them. ABN

UPDATE: If we are heading toward totalitarianism in the West, as many rightly fear, a difference today from all other totalitarian regimes of the past 100+ years is there is no strongman leader. We are being subdued by the stupidity of many weak figures—Fauci, Colllins, Birx, Biden, Harris, Trudeau, Macron, Johnson, Arden, etc—all of whom are easily replaceable by almost anyone on the left’s very deep bench of stupid people who all think alike.

This new form of totalitarianism, or proto-totalitarianism if that is what it is, relies on many stupid voices ordering roughly similar stupid policies. Stupid legacy media amplifies their voices, providing volume in place of reason or intelligence. Today’s West is marked by a grubby, messy chaos that is almost childish. It is backed up by the sinister probability that included in that mess will be more mandates, vax passports, detentions, vax by legal force, an economic crash.

So far, there has been very little violence. But few would doubt the grubby hands of our stupid leaders would refrain from it if they saw an advantage. All other forms of totalitarianism in the past 100+ years have arisen out of chaos, when a strongman leader took control and then used decisive military force to cement control which then allowed for mass killing to remove even the possibility of a counter-uprising. Does anyone see that possibility today? I don’t, not yet.

It looks more like we are being overwhelmed by gradual corrosion of everything that is reasonable while at the same time being gradually forced to accept the fait accompli of clearly inferior leaders who genuinely appear to be stupid. Bonhoeffer’s Theory of Stupidity resembles Desmet’s Theory of Mass Formation Psychosis and is probably a forerunner of it.

Both theories suggest that the way to stop this march of stupidity is to communicate our disagreement openly, widely and often and reasonably. Desmet says we should be polite with friends and family, a point I agree with. Beyond that, I think we should also target our stupid leaders very often with mockery, refutation, humor, irony, and rich sarcasm. There is no reason to spare their pride or dignity as clearly they posses neither. In daily life I never mock or attack anyone verbally, but stupid leaders are different. They are symbols as well as architects of extremely dangerous, violent, and deathly policies. Many deserve jail and some probably execution. We need to degrade their images as much as we can and with a fervor marked by reasoned understanding of how dangerous they are and how vulnerable the West now is. ABN

A useful guide to understanding what FIML is

The Ethical Skeptic (TES) has written a very good essay: The Distinction Between Comprehension and Understanding. I want to use a schema presented in his essay to describe what FIML is, how to see it and understand it. Comprehending it requires doing it and reaping its benefits.

TES provides this illustration of the layers of thought and psychology that culminate in comprehension:

I might not use a hammer to represent comprehension but since we have a hammer, it would represent FIML’s ability to smash through the dogma of psychology, our ordinary understanding of psycholinguistics, the simplicity with which we view real-time speech, and our ignorance that there exists anything profound in being able to analyze real-time, real-world speech as it is happening.

FIML is a method, a technique. It has no content save what you bring to it. FIML works with and reveals the profound subjectivity of the individual. Since basic FIML cannot be done alone but only with a partner, it also reveals the profound subjectivity of your partner. In doing this, it smashes the dogmas of psychology and virtually all public/common notions about what the human mind even is.

The difficulties of FIML are fundamentally two: 1) seeing it at all and 2) doing it. FIML is not something people normally ever do. I have been writing, reading, and thinking about FIML for many years and have never seen any reference to anything like it anywhere in the history of the world. If you know of one, please tell me. I will be delighted.

FIML is probably hard to see because all languages everywhere contain a very strong proscription against questioning anyone in the moment in order to begin a sober analysis. People just don’t do that. Getting that close and personal about something someone has just said (or did) is instinctively perceived as disrespect, argumentativeness, stupidity, rocking-the-boat, etc. FIML 100% is not that, but since no one has cultivated the habit or acquired the training to do it, no one can even see it let alone do it.

Most of us can see moments of speech and change our minds quickly if we are ordered, instructed, or want to curry favor. I guess that is a starting point, but none of that is FIML. FIML begins with a subjectively felt (or comprehended) need to find out if you have interpreted something correctly. Very ordinary, right? Yes, it is in “slow-time,” but not in real-time.

When done in real-time, the emphasis is on the one asking the question because this one has noticed an interpretation arising in their mind that may be wrong. The interpretation could be completely new or more likely habitual. By frequently noticing these interpretations and then asking your FIML partner about them (using FIML rules) and listening to their reply, you will gradually begin to see a true picture of your actual profound and marvelous subjective mind as it moves through and responds to its living existence.

FIML is no more difficult to learn than playing a musical instrument, riding a motorcycle, or cooking. Once both you and your partner understand what FIML basically is and why it is so necessary, you will progress quickly and gain many insights into your behaviors and thinking processes. At some point, you will achieve a kind of mutual comprehension of each other that is very clear and beautiful and cannot be gained in any other way.

Vaxxed women now lying about vax status as men see them as potentially infertile

Everyone was told that those who did not get the jab would regret it, but now it seems that the opposite is true. In a startling reversal, women who have had the COVID vaccine are being shunned in the dating scene by potential partners due to issues with possible birth defects and infertility.

Women in New York have started lying about their vaccination status because of widespread perception among men that they are infertile or will bear children with birth defects.

Covid is a glaring excrudescence of parasitic national and world culture

Covid is an extremely strong signal of national and global rot brought on and furthered by deeply ensconced parasitic subcultures. The origin of the pandemic is a bioweapon, itself a chemical parasite that reproduces in living cells.

The parasites feeding on the covid parasite are those who have benefitted from the global bioweapon attack—Big Pharma, Big Government, captured federal and state agencies, particularly health agencies, cooperating bureaucrats and politicians, billionaires, elites, large stores and businesses, legacy media, hospitals (through parasitic feeding on govt covid payouts), and more.

When covid is over, the parasitic culture it has revealed in the stark light of medical and scientific reality will not be over. It will slither back into the shadows of the agencies and organizations it has fostered and lives within.

If we really want to save our country and the world, we must recognize the horror and massive power of the huge parasite that is feeding on us. It is also in our schools, universities, schoolboards, legal system, virtually all licensed professions, science itself. Proof of this is either the silence of these organizations about covid crimes or their active and sometimes vociferous complicity in them, including but not limited to banning early treatments, banning effective hospital treatments, mandating harmful vaxxes, school closings, lockdowns, falsifying PCR tests, falsifying disease and mortality data, unrelenting fear porn, othering bodily autonomy, censoring and hunting dissenting doctors and scientists, and more.

I mentioned billionaires and the elite as parasites but mean only those who have participated in the parasitism and/or remained silent about it, especially if they are not otherwise normally silent. This category of parasites includes but is not limited to academics, universities, scientific journals, scientists, doctors, celebrities, politicians, intellectuals, influencers, and Big Tech social media that has consistently silenced and deplatformed reasoned debate.

The rise and fall of rationality in language

Significance

The post-truth era has taken many by surprise. Here, we use massive language analysis to demonstrate that the rise of fact-free argumentation may perhaps be understood as part of a deeper change. After the year 1850, the use of sentiment-laden words in Google Books declined systematically, while the use of words associated with fact-based argumentation rose steadily. This pattern reversed in the 1980s, and this change accelerated around 2007, when across languages, the frequency of fact-related words dropped while emotion-laden language surged, a trend paralleled by a shift from collectivistic to individualistic language.

Parasitism as a way to explain covid and the decline of the West

Parasites take from their hosts and also harm them. Western societies in general have become infested with powerful parasitic subcultures that take all they can get while producing nothing but harm and resource depletion wherever they become ensconced, which is almost everywhere today.

I first noticed this in university many decades ago when leftist politics and schmoozing with mediocre professors was not only more important than intellectual curiosity, it was required. Intellectual curiosity made you an outcast. I saw this pattern again recently when I volunteered to be on a citizen’s board in my city. The board was run by two lazy old men who controlled everything, so nothing got done while they maintained their mildly high status without working.

You can also see parasitism in the NIH, NIAID, CDC, and FDA, all of which have selfishly, stupidly, and destructively mismanaged the covid pandemic. Fauci, Collins, Wallensky, Birx and many more enjoyed their prominence and power while hundreds of thousands of Americans died because of their actions and nonactions. Their parasitism at the top was mirrored all the way down to nursing stations in local hospitals, which were and still are restricted by NIH liability rules that rule out all treatments but ones that don’t work (and pay well). Hospital doctors went along out of fear while many hospital administrators did not mind the federal payoffs rolling in for each “covid” death they managed to gin up.

Our news media is similar as is our celebrity society. Kim Kardashian said recently that a main reason she left West is he was going against the celebrity consensus. Austin has purged the military through vax mandates. Many mayors have paralyzed, even destroyed their cities with mandates. Biden wants everyone to be vaxxed and, sadly, so does Trump. Who got to him, I wonder. Or didn’t get to him with a better message.

When we search for a “Mr Global” or a Top Dog in the global cabal that runs the West and much of the world, we miss seeing that there is no one at the top. What there is is an elite parasitic community which knows only how to take for themselves, seize control for themselves. Beyond that, this elite community of parasites has no idea how to actually benefit anyone else. At best they preen their vanity with Big Subjects like Global Warming or the Great Reset, which is only needed because of their parasitic mismanagement of the global economy over many decades.

In microcosm, you can see intellectual parasitism among people you know; those who blindly follow Fauci and become enraged when you do not. You can see it in everything Woke, BLM, Antifa, all of our captured agencies, captured DC.

Parasites can be very smart, so accepting there is no Mr Global but only a mass of parasites feeding on the body of the West offers no solace though it may help us understand what needs to be done. Somehow we have to change all of it. Historically, no great empire has ever done that. I had hopes for Trump’s first term which was even better than expected. Then the parasites stole the election. His Truth Social holds out major hope for rejuvenation through healthy dialog. Maybe his second term will be better than expected too. I wrote this because I think it is crucial to understand that our current very bad situation is a society rife with parasitism much more than one controlled by a Deep State with a purpose. ABN

FRANCE: Notre-Dame interior faces woke ‘Disney’ revamp: Critics aghast at plans for ‘Christianity for dummies’ trail inside the cathedral

Paris’s fire-ravaged Notre-Dame cathedral risks resembling a “politically correct Disneyland” under controversial plans for its renovation seen by The Telegraph.Critics have warned that the world-famous cathedral will be turned into an “experimental showroom” under plans to dramatically change the inside of the medieval building.Under the proposed changes, confessional boxes, altars and classical sculptures will be replaced with modern art murals, and new sound and light effects to create “emotional spaces”.

New Hampshire establishes system to report anti-white discrimination from teachers: The system was created following a nationwide backlash to Critical Race Theory

The New Hampshire Department of Education has launched a system for parents to report cases of racist anti-white discrimination against their children from teachers and schools.


Earlier this year, New Hampshire, along with a number of other states, effectively banned the teaching of anti-white Critical Race Theory in public schools, as well as banning teaching materials that could be considered racist by any definition.

Police launch criminal investigation into Arizona school board president’s secret dossier on parents who opposed CRT and mask mandates

Police in Scottsdale have launched a probe into school board president  

Moms were targeted in a secret dossier of parents who opposed district policy 

School Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg had access to the dossier 

District blames his father for compiling the sprawling file on parents 

Contents included Social Security numbers, financial info and divorce records

District has also opened its own investigation into the scandal 

link

Good people of Scottsdale, these investigations are almost certainly going to be fake, compromised, subverted, or so weak and naive nothing will be found and everything will be covered up. I strongly doubt that Police Chief Walther will understand the seriousness, breadth, or national importance of the local cell that has been exposed. He will fall under great pressure to not see evidence that should be pursued, evidence that will lead beyond Scottsdale. He may already be compromised. The promise of the school district to hire “an independent investigator” similarly will almost certainly yield nothing of importance. Both “investigations” will serve to waste time, allowing most people to forget. You will be thrown a few bones and it might feel OK, but the infiltration and subversion of your school system will continue. I hope one of the mom’s copied the drive in question and has either secured that copy and/or distributed it to others. Your best course of action would be to hire your own independent investigator, one thoroughly vetted to have no possible ties to the people involved and knowledgeable about the much larger network to which this incident surely belongs. The video in the parking lot is very telling. Notice how casual and familiar they are with the machinations of Greenburg’s father, who owns the drive. With a little research and brainpower, it should not be too hard to figure out how the people involved are related to each other and to other groups in Scottsdale and beyond. What you have discovered is a particular instance of a widespread network that has worked its way into almost every American institution there is. Incidentally, this is not about CRT. It’s about controlling your children and through them America. ABN
