In our #political system, the #government “derives its just powers from the #consent of the #governed,” to quote the #Declaration of #Independence. But the “just powers” of government cannot be #unlimited, because they exist most fundamentally to secure the #God-given #rights of #life and #liberty, so that each of us can exercise our moral agency—the ability “to act for [ourselves]and not to be acted upon”[xiii]—and be #accountable before #God for our #choices and #actions.
#Constitutions, #representative government, checks and balances, and the rule of #law help constrain the tendency of government to exercise #unlimited #power.

US pandemic failures called violation of human rights

https://global.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202006/12/WS5ee1bb95a3108348172525e8.html

The US government's self-interested, short-sighted, inefficient, and irresponsible response to the #pandemic has caused the tragedy in which about 2 million Americans became infected with the #virus and more than 110,000 have died from it, the article said.

It has exposed the long-existing and now deteriorating problems in the United States, such as a divisive #society, the #polarization between the rich and the poor, #... Show more...
 

The #Psychopath in Chief

Like many other #Trump critics, I believed that he was driven by an insatiable narcissistic hunger to be loved, accepted, admired, and praised. That remains prima facie true, but it deflects attention from what drives Trump more deeply: the need to dominate. His primary goal is to win at any cost and the end always justifies the means. Ultimately, he doesn’t care what anyone else thinks or feels. For Trump, the choice between dominating and being loved — saving himself or saving others — is no contest.

In addition, if we look at the gray shaded area of the chart above, showing the cost of electricity from fossil fuels (primarily #coal and natural #gas) we can see that building new solar plants started to become competitive on raw cost in the middle of this past decade, and is increasingly looking cheaper than building new #fossil #power plants.

anyone else think #ubi sounds too good to be true, from those cunts?
surely it wont be unconditional, but it might be universal. no #uubi there.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die


I don't know how exactly to deal with my white friends lately. I could have the same headspace of ignorance but for a lucky random event that changed my direction towards #open-mindedness about two decades ago. They aren't exposed to the realities of people without power or money. They don't know they should be exposed to those harsh realities. They don't know because of how #society has formed and they don't know how it has been #manipulated by people with #power and #capital.

Electrical Power from Hydrogen to Dark Matter....
Brilliant Light Power has developed a new commercially competitive, non-polluting, plasma-based primary source of massive power from the conversion of hydrogen atoms of water molecules to dark matter, the previously unidentified matter that makes up most of the mass of the universe. The SunCell® that was invented to harness the new power source catalytically converts hydrogen directly into dark matter form called Hydrino® releasing brilliant high-energy light which is down-converted in energy to facilitate the production of electricity using commercially-available concentrator photovoltaic cells.

There is no fellowship inviolate,
no faith is kept, when kingship is concerned.

Nec fides regni est.]

We give the highest and the most peculiar praise to the precepts of Machiavelli, when we say that they may frequently be of real use in regulating conduct — not so much because they are more just, or more profound, than those which might be culled from other authors as because they can be more readily applied to the problems of real life.
Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) English writer and politician

And the man who is arrogant belittles his victim. For arrogance is doing and saying things which bring shame to the victim, not in order that something may come out of it for the doer other than the mere fact it happened, but so that he may get pleasure. … The cause of the pleasure enjoyed by those who are arrogant is that they think that in doing ill they are themselves very much superior. That is why the young and the wealthy are arrogant. For they think that in being arrogant they are superior.
Aristotle (384-322 BC) Greek philosopher
Rhetoric, Book 2, ch. 2 (1378b23-29)

The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail — its roof may shake — the wind may blow through it — the storm may enter — the rain may enter — but the King of England cannot enter! — all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement!

We observe that men should be either treated generously or destroyed, because they take revenge for slight injuries — for heavy ones they cannot; hence an injury done to a man should be such that it does not fear revenge.

If all matter is consciousness, then it makes no sense to seek to order or control it’s explicitly conscious forms, #linguistic and natural life…from self-organizing systems we came, and to self-organizing systems we shall return. The real death was the attempt at arbitrary power, which has cost each of us, rich and poor, the full-potential of our Linguistic-Electromagnetic spectrum of expression. This is an inevitable return, salvation for all faced with the singular death of the planet. Heaven on earth that can only happen peacefully and ethically, because the order and control that we are used to does the opposite: it makes phenomenals less likely to project and thereby self-organize truth, and...

Linguistic-Electromagnetism (LEM)


In order for a word to represent a physical force, we must have normalizing metrics to measure it for experiment. LEM represents the inherent power of language, and Project-V represents the effort to restore power to language. The main goal is to save the earth from humanity, without sacrificing ethical humanity in the process.

Assuming this force to be a harmonic-reality, we can call its omnipresent field of study grammar. Today we live without the globally available protocols necessary to allow for emergent meaning in interaction with this structure. These programs could have evolved natively and without technology. “Arguing semantics” has regularly kept intelligent people from questioning their own intelligences, and so Project-V introduces a blockchain-social-network to make this much easier. The current global crises have led to this proposition of self-organisational protocols in lieu of the time for unmediated deep global conversations, to return to a LEM-unmanipulated reality. This entire process is, in line wit... Show more...

FDR’s War on Wall Street


The new president laid down the gauntlet in his inaugural speech on March 4th saying: “The money-changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.”

FDR declared a war on Wall Street on several levels, beginning with his support of the Pecorra Commission which sent thousands of bankers to prison, and exposed the criminal activities of the top tier of Wall Street’s power structure who manipulated the depression, buying political offices and pushing fascism. Ferdinand Pecorra who ran the commission called out the deep state when he said “this small group of highly placed financiers, controlling the very springs of economic activity, holds more real power than any similar group in the United States.”
