035: Problem. Reaction. Solution.


(American History F-ed #7) The seventh installment in a series of shows about government school's history curriculum. We'll explore the lies, myths, omissions and distortions used to indoctrinate blind patriotism (aka nationalism aka mysticism).

Critical Thinking Question:
Statism appears to be only example of a system of ongoing attack and predation where the aggressors seem to be more fearful of victims than the victims are of the aggressors. How do the aggressors manage these fears?

An email from a listener gets me thinking about conspiracy theories. We'll divert our attention from the roots of the tree I like to think we're chopping at, to jump down a nearby rabbit hole. Let's see where it takes us!

-Iraq and 9/11
-Climate Change
-Health Care
-19th Century German "Philosophers"

What is the Hegelian Dialectic?
And how does it relate to last episode's formula:

...the use of force
leads to
perverse unintended consequence
leads to
new problem
leads to
demand for government action
leads to
the use of force...

  1. Think how The sonar man would be treated in any mainstream television interview if he declared that the government had prior knowledge of the Gulf o Tonk Tonk – – – It would be nothing like this – – – It would be a full steam ahead , high volume verbal enslaught on steroids interview style – – – What a terrible regression of the media , masses and the mind…. 🙁

  2. Yes. I have considered that the government putting pretext events into place does show that they still had THAT level of consideration – if you know what I mean by consideration – Maybe the wrong word.

    It is not that the ruling class has taken the pish out of the rest of us using economics , social stratification etc etc etc but we have been robbed of our faculties – there is nothing more repulsive you could deprive from another human being.

    Global warming = pure corrosion of the institutions of goverNANCE = 2 + 5 bullshites x pie and a half / how daft we are next Tuesday.

  4. Location, location and location. Brett’s response to this email is very interesting, showing step by step the logic he uses in the position that he stands on for un-schooling. I always struggled with this issue myself, trying to explain why unschooling is were the focus should be in “turning the page” over when it comes to creating better opportunities for new generations and getting rid of the old. The “Fog of War” or in this care the “Fog of Wrongful Causes” makes it confusing for the conspiracy theorists to locate the “Kingpin” of it all, turning allied humans against each other and creating distrust among the community. It’s an old war technique that has been used for centuries and now it’s on the grandest scale that it’s ever been. I have to give credit to the folks that have been deploying it, it’s a great scheme that been working well, but Brett comes in with a “sharp blade” and cuts it to bits with a couple of swift moves, his very cool that way.

    Sure all the wrongful happenings that are occurring because of the unleashing force from the government on it’s slaves makes it difficult to locate the first strike, un-schooling seems to feel almost to passive for the solution to the current events, maybe it is. We could find that once we have perfected the art of un-schooling that there are other deeper issues that hold the force of government control together but for this era it is the only place that anything productive can result, all other energies spent on other things will just be a waste of time. Brett’s approach in arguing the key principle of exerting force onto other is a great place to create an awareness within those who have not done so yet and been distracted on other false causes. The issue is that many of those who have been looking in the wrong direction will find themselves frustrated and confused and loss hope in doing anything. That is the trait of an aware person doing the wrong thing compared to a self actualized person who does the right thing. Brett’s motivation and will power will prevail for his entire life because he knows the true potential of his actions and the effect they will leave on for generations to come, it is a true legacy of valiance.

    Listening to this podcast made me realize how much Brett cares for his listeners, he went all the way and back and still gave some more, 110%! I really enjoyed this podcast and plan to keep it close for the times I find myself in a frustrating situation with another fellow who jumps of the little red laser dot like a kitten while being made fun of.
