I'm an old Pogo fan. For some unknown reason I persist in outrage at Feudalism, as if human beings can do much better than this. Our old ways of life are obsolete and are killing us. Will the human race wake up in time? Stay tuned...

UkraineTie1, From Uploaded(1 comments) SHARE More Sharing I haven't followed Carlson, or Putin for that matter. But in this lengthy and very candid interview, the contrast between two heads of state is so striking it bears more than a cursory glance.

(1 comments) SHARE More Sharing Without a lineage of guided practice, only an impoverished artifice of distraction, deflection and denial remains. Jurisprudence, for instance, has been inverted and reduced to a fancy set of lock-picks and escape tricks.

(2 comments) SHARE More Sharing Why should we believe this will stop, given a level of corruption that provides blanket impunity for live-streaming extermination of an entire people? It's a growth industry after all.

Pond 2023, From Uploaded(1 comments) SHARE More Sharing Big business is so much bigger than business now, that the few economic models that ever made sense are all distorted. For instance, if there was a ceasefire imposed on just one of the ongoing foreign massacres (and there are at least three at any give moment), the "economy" would be in real trouble. But if people are homeless, unemployed, destitute and starving, the market doesn't even notice.

(1 comments) SHARE More Sharing The key may be the neurological correlation of behavior and perception. Modifying either what we do, or the way in which we understand reality, can shift our trajectory. But behavior modification is too much like trying to back a triple-tandem truck into an alley: instant chaos. On the other hand, modifying the way in which we see and understand our world brings whatever the hardwired correlate to that view, instantly.

(2 comments) SHARE More Sharing All commentary on the the carpet-bombing of the Gaza Strip makes a point of condemning the recent Hamas incursion as a War Crime. But this falls a bit short of today's reality. In this age of total surveillance (the prevailing economic logic now), war is a crime at which we can no longer feign surprise.

SHARE More Sharing A chaotically polarized electorate, social fragmentation, cultural incoherence, and logarithmically increasing carbon emissions are the extremely toxic byproduct of the algorithmic attention-mining that sustains and drives the privately-owned digital services our very lives now depend on for food, water, medicine, electricity, transportation, shelter, the clothes on our backs, our children's education.

https://peterbarus.substack.com/, From Uploaded SHARE More Sharing We can't tackle these catastrophes in the usual way, as if they were separate problems that just happen to be coming to a head at the same time. They cross too many boundaries that are really insubstantial, just arbitrary boundaries of thinking, a legacy of bureaucratic departments and academic disciplines of the past. They're too hopelessly interrelated, like the Rubik's Cube puzzle, solving one problem un-solves another.

(3 comments) SHARE More Sharing There is no way any problem-solving organization can solve the problem of proliferating problem-solving organizations. We're back to what we came in with: our own sensibilities, our tendency to project our own traumas on others, our automatic snap-judgments, our ulterior motives, our hidden agendas. All the mechanisms we evolved for mere survival in a world full of large predators, that got us this far.
