Human Nature

"Habit is thus the enormous flywheel of society, its most precious conservation agent. It alone is what keeps us all within the bounds of ordinance, and saves the children of fortune from the envious uprisings of the poor..." - William James.

With the events of the George Floyd murder in Minneapolis, we are seeing Human Nature work its confusing magic.  The people I've spoken with, as you would expect, are horrified by what they saw.  

Then, the reaction happened.  

I often go the Saul Alinsky route and tell students that the reaction is the thing to pay attention to.  People show their true colors after the fact.  They let you know what they really want.  They say what they really feel.  It isn't the action to analyze, it's the reaction.

The regular people and students I talk to are completely against the destruction, looting, stealing, fire and thievery.  In my interview with a student from Haiti she was abundantly clear about how she was against the looting.  She's seen mob rule.  She knows struggle.  

Conversely, Chuck Schumer and his ilk are on record that they respect the 'protestors'.  They are not only are OK with them, they see looting and violence as good and necessary.  Don Lemon and Fredo Cuomo had a particularly distasteful and tone deaf conversation about this.  2 wealthy men with no connection to struggle trying to be down - it was awful.

Tucker Carlson, on Fox, of all places, seems to see what I see.  Progressive politicians were speaking in unison about the legitimacy of the looters.  They are now speaking in unison, talking about 'defunding the police'.  They, or their paymasters, understand Human Nature.  With law enforcement gone or weakened, it will cause chaos and there will be a power vacuum.  It's one they intend to fill.

Those at the top of the pyramid will use those at the bottom to cement their stations in life, and put those at the bottom in an ever shrinking pen.  They've been doing it for centuries.  They aren't stopping now.

The Coronavirus is Woke

What changed?

That's the question asked by Paul Joseph Watson, and it's a good one.  Not too long ago, (ok last week) we were being scolded by the Corporate Media for playing in the park with our children.  We are still told we can't go to a bar or restaurant - we have to get take-out or delivery.

On a grand scale, they were howling about states like Georgia, Florida, Texas and Missouri re-opening.  Didn't they know they were taking a super risk?!  The virus was going to come back with a vengeance!

What changed?  Where did all the virus fear go?  Where's Karen harping on us about the need to Social Distance and wear a mask?  Why aren't they saying anything about this?
So I can't go to a restaurant with my family, because of "sOciAl DistAnCing", but somehow this is OK, according to the Corporate Press. Where is the outcry about the danger?  Of course, there isn't any, because this is something they like.

Paul Joseph Watson does a good job pointing out the stupidity of the Media, the Political Class, and the dolts who follow them:

Interview With a Student on Haiti and Minneapolis

Sometimes it helps to hear what young people are saying.

I work with some exceptional minds and they are willing to talk about the past, present, and the future. In this interview, Eamley and I discuss her Haitian heritage, and she gives us a more accurate view of what Haiti is like today. The picture she paints isn't pretty, but it is more robust and balanced than anything you would ever see in the Corporate Press. The last 25 minutes we discuss the after effects surrounding the Minneapolis protests.

Minneapolis: Hotep Jesus Has A 4-Step Plan on How to Fix The Riots...Forever

This is the latest assignment for the 12th grade Public Speaking class.  As I'm congenitally unable to give out something from an Establishment Source, I thought Hotep Jesus would be a good person to put in front of my population.

-------

Bryan Sharpe, aka Hotep Jesus, has a definitive plan to clean up the cities and stop the riots forever. As this is the only assignment for the week I would like you to listen to his plan, his delivery, and his use of rhetoric. You need to listen however, because he comes up with not only specific ideas, but he names names and uses a linear approach to fix things. He talks about social issues, but also the economics and money involved during this volatile time. At times, he gets emotional and cuts down to the bone. There is some profanity, nothing worse than you hear in the hallways every day, but be prepared anyway.
  • Secure the perimeter
  • Hire only local firms
  • Secure the contracts
  • Execute without deviation.

HJ talks about this as a start, not a reaction to an event. As you listen, perhaps take notes, as he tosses out names, ideas, criticisms, and unpopular opinions (particularly about schools). I found the last 8 minutes when he talks about "the Program" quite profound.

Please produce a critical write up of the message and the delivery. Keep in mind, some of you can do as well or better than he does. As I write this, I'm thinking of a few names from pds. 3 and 7 who can do this.

Now that we're at the end of the year it's time for you to create your channels and get out there and speak. YouTube, Vimeo, Bitchute, D-Live .. do your thing.

If not you, who? If not now, when?

G. E. D. Report #50 - Why I Pay for News and Information

Today I'm talking to you about paying for media, paying for content.

I think the next online behavioral wave will be people paying for news media. I've been listening to unauthorized.TV and realvision.com and they’ve changed many things and quite a bit of my thought processes.

I write this while I’m listening to Dolores Cahill, a doctor in the UK and James Delingpole. One of the amazing connections I've made while listening to them is realizing that doctor Cahill is talking about going outside and getting sunlight vitamin D, taking vitamin C, taking zinc and having those things be the answer to not getting sicknesses like the Novel Coronavirus.

What that would mean is the amazing monetary windfall that would come with a global vaccine would not be possible if people were to be healthy on their own. Think about it. If people are incredibly healthy, immune or near immune to all sorts of viruses, then what we call ‘big pharma’ can't make any money. What we call ‘big government’ can't control your actions.

If you're a healthy person and you're taking vitamins, or eating vitamin and mineral rich food and you know you're not going to get sick, then the people who want to control you and your family and your loved ones have no power. And not only that, they won't make any money off you.

So, in listening to Cahill and Delingpole today on a site for which I pay, I made a connection between big pharma, big medical, and big government and their desire to control and make millions upon millions of dollars at our expense by using our fear. Thusly, the point of my YouTube video is that slowly the remnant, or the top 20%, will realize that it's time to pull away from the Corporate Media Establishment voices and companies and go with much smaller, leaner, more effective subscription models.

That's the trend that I see coming and it has helped me as I describe in the video. I have very little fear and feel much more empowered and much more able to live a life of abundance and fulfillment than one of cowering in my apartment, wearing a mask, hoping I don't get the bug.

Student Sent Home Because Corona: Becomes an Independent Thinker

This is another reaction to the John Taylor Gatto assignment earlier: "Classrooms of the Heart".  It is one of the many unintended consequences of students getting sent home and doing work on their own, at their own pace.  The untapped and unshackled potential of the human mind was unleashed.  Whatever the reason for the one size fits all, totally out of proportion response to The Novel Coronavirus was, they certainly didn't anticipate reactions like this.  Here is a young Black woman who has clearer vision now that she's been left alone and allowed to blossom and think.

-----------

"The minute he started talking it reminded me of the way you teach. He’s not teaching his kids by the book but with life lessons. You rarely find teachers who stray away from the institutionalized school system meant to fail us - and I mean all students. These students will be successful because they are learning about the life experiences. They are not learning about the 1950s but about their future.

His classroom, much like yours, forces the students to be analytical. They tap in to their intelligence and think for themselves. Being home has helped me think about things in a different way. I don’t have teachers telling me how I should think and how I should act in the world. I now hold the power to think for myself and take interest to the things I care about.

I like this video because it’s insightful and I’m learning more things from it. The way he’s teaching these kids is exceptional. He’s letting them shape their future he is not telling them how they should do it. They are able to be independent and not depend on a teacher to feel like they are learning. This type of teaching teaches the kids how to be independent thinkers. You learn by experience and that is what Gatto is doing. He is letting his students learn by their experience. School should be like this, but if it was, the agenda they are pushing would conflict with this type of teaching."

------

I responded: This is well done. You pinpointed the main points: people learn by experience, independent thinking is key, and they are pushing an agenda. You really caught the deeper meaning here. Nice work.

The Last Dance - Interview With Harlem Hec

Coming from the PJ's of the Polo Grounds, Harlem Hec and I discuss the documentary on the Jordan era Bulls: "The Last Dance". We cover the differences in eras, which team was best, the influence of social media on the NBA universe, and other great topics you won't get from the other interviews.

If you've got an interest in what regular people are saying about "The Last Dance", this interview and the ones with Isaiah 'Elite Buckets' Rhodes are the ones to listen to.
