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
“Machiavelli,” Edinburgh Review (Mar 1827)

“Machiavelli,” Edinburgh Review (Mar 1827)
 
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!
William Pitt the Elder (1708-1778) British statesman, orator [1st Earl of Chatham]
Speech on the Excise Bill, House of Commons (Mar 1763)

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.
Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) Italian politician, philosopher, political scientist
The Prince, ch. 3 (1513) [tr. Gilbert (1959)]

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.”

The Literal Gaslighting That Helps #America Avoid Acting on the #Climate #Crisis

Burning gas produces less carbon dioxide than burning coal. But #carbon #dioxide is not the only #greenhouse #gas. The second most important contributor to climate change is methane—CH4. And, when you frack the countryside for natural gas to burn in #power plants, lots of methane #leaks out at every stage of the process, from drilling to combustion. So: less carbon dioxide, more #methane.

Europe’s green power generation keeps rising

What’s happening? Combined wind and solar generation across Europe’s Big Five power markets ( #Germany, #France, #Spain, #Italy, #GB ) is up 11% year on year. The green energy produced to end-September is equivalent to Europe’s total steam coal imports in 2018. Over the summer cheap gas and strong renewables kept a lid on power prices and allowed below-normal hydro reservoir stocks to be preserved for more lucrative winter price period.

In the development of human #civilisation, it is inevitable for a dysfunctional institution to be abolished and replaced by a better one. This is how progress is made. If a government is not of the people, by the people, for the people, then it is inevitable that the people will establish a government of the people. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has proved itself to be not of the people, by the people, for the people. We hereby declare the establishment of the Provisional Government of Hong Kong.
