Going Boldly Beyond the Pale: POTUS, Balkanization, Polarization, & Atomization, Identity Politics Inner & Outer

A little birdie told me that Trump is talking of closing the borders around the crumbling Empire to keep the Barbarians at bay. But the real barbarians are inside the Tower, and always have been; so what’s the end game here? Create proxy armies like ISIS and resource-plundering “wars” like Gulf 1 & 2, and …

2017: The Year of the Black Hole?

2017. A preoccupation with the dark side of human experience. Someone who reads this blog recently opined that it might be beneficent if I managed to get more lightness, more of a focus on the positive, into my writing. I told him I’d think about it. In my last conversation with Gary Heidt (today’s podcast, …

The War Against Truth Over at the RI Ranch (Or: Does RI Now Stand for Relentless Indignation?)

Over at the Rigorous Intuition forum, as some of you know, I continue to address (if not fend off) a seemingly endless dirge of denials, deflections, and dissemblings around #Pizzagate. As I wrote there, it’s a bit like RI has turned into CTR. (Thread link.) Seeing all of this fervent activity at the board, the …

Vicious Circles & Angry Squares: Pedophilia, Scapegoating, Taboo, & Social Control (Part Two)

The Dark Secret of Parenting 1.   A Vicious Circle that Can’t Be Squared When it comes to addressing pedophilia, as with homosexuality, there seems to be a massive blind spot. It is this: of all the men or women who sexually abuse children, a significant percentage of them were themselves interfered with as children.[1] Of …

Vicious Circles & Angry Squares: Pedophilia, Scapegoating, Taboo, & Social Control (Part One)

Part One: Hammers & Nails 1.   Scapegoating & Mimesis I recently had an exchange with a Christian reader on Faceborg. She posted–not for the first time–about how pedophiles should be put to death. I disagreed. My disagreement with sentiments of this sort is a strong one. It’s not that I am ipso facto opposed to …

Back to the Kubrickon: Kek, Trump, God-Manufacturing via the Internet & the Implicate Order of the Id

My attention was recently drawn to a website about the strange and synchronistic connections between Donald Trump’s ascension, an ancient Egyptian frog-deity called Kek, and the id-iosyncratic internet activities of 4chan. Read it yourself before resuming this exegesis. What follow are initial thoughts which I posted at the Kubrickon thread over at RI, as well …

Here Come the Designer Fascists: The Perception Managers’ Last Hurrah

Rumors that Hillary Clinton is tied to a child trafficking pedophile ring that practices Satanic rituals based on Aleister Crowley’s Thelema religion? Say what? Some bullet points to set the scene–because time is always against us. John David Podesta is the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. He previously served as Chief of …

A Void to Avoid? Knowledge, Physics, Causality, Free Will, & the Realm of Spirit

Turning emails into an essay, even when using only one side of the conversation (never mind two), is notoriously difficult. What makes writing compelling is that it can be (or invariably is) a medium for transmitting the author’s (or authors’) brain state(s) at the time of writing; this is what makes rewriting so tricky, even at …

“WTF” Ritual Sacrifice Theater at CERN: Perception, Mimesis, & Hazing Rituals

Recently this video appeared online. The video has been reported in the mainstream media, including The Guardian. The various articles unanimously dismiss the video as a prank or a spoof. None of the dismissals provide an explanation for why the video should not to be taken seriously. It is considered self-evidential, as if the video …

Repackaging Satan: Satan Schools, Secularism, Superstition, & Neoliberal Scapegoating

(Thanks to Mike B for bringing my attention to this) After School Satan A word of introduction: my recent research—and to a degree my own family history—has of necessity led me to recognize certain practices and philosophies that involve deliberate child sexual abuse for supposed “spiritual” (ritualistic) ends, as in the case of MK-ULTRA and …
