FOR YOUR PLEASURE

For your pleasure; I was reading Taleb yesterday, which started a thought ticking, and so I wrote these remarks in reflection of what the author had sparked.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb is interested in how do live in a world we don’t understand (practically and ethically), & mapping a Black Swan robust society. He spends his time as a philosophical flâneur, taking long walks (slowly), thinking in cafés across the planhttp://fooledbyrandomness.com/et, and ordering a lot of books (a flâneur is the exact opposite of the tourist).

*******My Commentary:

Statistical Undecidability and My Conjecture that all is ritual based ‘magic’ to the superconscious.

Our world is built and works on the way we perceive it, which is a matter of structural habituation of thinking and doing.
The runes of statistical analysis are no more—no less than talismans in the modern paradigm than were the ancient runes of the Magi.~ww

It doesn’t take a racket scientist to figure out what is going on in the world. But it does require a delusion smashing epiphany. A provision only found within oneself.

Paraphrasing Twain; Rumors of my “antisemitism” are greatly exaggerated. That I have the freedom of will and thought to address the issue of ‘Jewish Identity’ has distressed some. That is their own problem if they project their delusions onto what I have said.

My position is and has always been to judge on individual merit. I do not believe in consensus, it is a delusion in itself. It takes the greatest imagination to come even close to getting another’s perspective. Most agreements are built on emotion, not structural epistemological comprehension.
This is why investing our identity entirely within a group is an epistemic error. Contradictions are inevitable in any manner of ‘groupthink’ for the simple reason that we are first and foremost individual entities.

The very same core arguments I make about ‘White Christian Identity’ are the ones used to critique ‘Jewish Identity’, because the same core epistemic errors influence both—and any other identity cult, from tribal to national.

It is in all of our self interest to actually serve our own self interests, because it is in protecting them that protects all. It is the basis of the philosophy of Liberty. To allow each to protect his own, means adherence to our responsibility to general liberty as a base for our personal liberty.
It is our personal comprehension of this not a community comprehension—each and every individual needs to comprehend it on a deep personal level.

Again, consensus brings with it the caveat of being illusionary beyond the moment of agreement. A general consensus can only carry a vague general comprehension. Don’t be so sure that people understand a prospect from your perspective and understanding of it.

A wise saying is attributed to Jesus of Nazareth, he said, “Come out from amongst them”.
Your were born with a brain to think things out on your own. In that aspect then, ‘groupthink’ is a sin {error}. A ‘good conscience’, is an informed and attentive conscience, rational and lucid.
“To yourself be true,” it is said. To do that you must know yourself.

You have a unique identity beyond any group. Come out from amongst them.~ww

P.S.:
The term “mentally unfit” always becomes popular in a scientific dictatorship. What is ‘unfit’ about the mental construct is based on the perspective of the state. A dangerous perspective for those concerned with liberty and justice.

Peace, Rogue

  1. THOUGHTCRIMES…more arrests:

    “What do you need to have done to get all the current government out of office? That is why we should own guns to go into court to get my right to trial back.”

    “One day I will have my revenge on your seeking so much revenge on me,” read one of the posts cited in media reports.

    “Someday Boooooom while your setting in your offices,” “And you know I won’t even be the one pulling the trigger,”

    Emails from,
    ~Cheryl Allen, 51, of Martinsville being held on $100,000 bond Saturday in a jail in her hometown, about 28 miles south of Indianapolis.

    I’m sorry, but I do not see any direct threats being made here. I don’t. This is not prosecutable evidence on any reasonable basis.

    Notice in the last email here, she doesn’t not say that she is going to shoot anybody. She postulates that eventually someone will, but it won’t be her. Interpreting it as a threat to “hire an assassin” is too great a stretch and a dishonest deconstruction. Even postulating that someone deserves to be killed is not the same as threatening to do the killing.
    Blurring this bright line and promoting a “nuanced” reading of anyone’s words is a dangerous step on a slippery slope.

  2. shit.

    hold on a minute……okay. so now every time an elected criminal even hints at possibly supporting an act or a bill that is tyrannical or threatening in any way to any citizen and could bring direct or indirect harm to any citizen or citizens anywhere in this country or in other nations, we must act immediately to have that elected criminal removed – and by that i mean taken away by law enforcement – from society so that he or she cannot harm anyone. what a great new rule! because, seriously, i cannot think of any group of life forms more threatening or dangerous than the government.

    like, say, when several electeds stated that the those who participated in the mavi marmara event should be executed. or that whistleblowers be dealt with in insane ways. or bill o’reilly under any circumstances. ohmygod. since the government, law enforcement, the media and the military are all joined at the hip and are unalterably corrupt they actually have the means to pull off executions!! i am pretty sure they have done so many many many times. so that makes them incalculably more dangerous than any other citizens because they can kill on a whim, vast amounts of citizens anywhere on earth. oh my gosh.

    we are in terrible danger. i will start today, reporting every single threat that an elected official or any government, corporate or media fuck makes against any individual or group or nation on the face of the earth. i will compile my list of contacts and start a CITIZENS’ WATCH GROUP immediately.

    thank you so much, mr rogue, for posting this very important information.

  3. THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY

    The Greeks Among Romans: Let’s start by identifying the flâneurs and the escape artists.

    http://www.fooledbyrandomness.com/imbeciles.htm

    2006-The government-sponsored institution Fannie Mae, when I look at its risks, seems to be sitting on a barrel of dynamite, vulnerable to the slightest hiccup. But not to worry: their large staff of scientists deemed these events “unlikely”.

    There is no way to gauge the effectiveness of their lending activity by observing it over a day, a week, a month, or . . . even a century!

    (…) the real- estate collapse of the early 1990s in which the now defunct savings and loan industry required a taxpayer-funded bailout of more than half a trillion dollars. The Federal Reserve bank protected them at our expense: when “conservative” bankers make profits, they get the benefits; when they are hurt, we pay the costs.

    The giant firm J. P. Morgan put the entire world at risk by introducing in the nineties RiskMetrics, a phony method aiming at managing people’s risks, causing the generalized use of the ludic fallacy, and bringing Dr. Johns into power in place of the skeptical Fat Tonys. (A related method called “Value-at-Risk,” which relies on the quantitative measurement of risk, has been spreading.)

    _________________________________________________________________

    The flâneurs were never suspects, just the escape artists who well……escaped.
    That’s their m.o.

    The drinker paradox fits. Were all guilty.

    If P, then Q.
    Not P.
    Therefore, not Q.

    This new campaign as absurd as it is only strengthens their position. Once you unleash the absurd, the final formula will roll back to the mere outrageous which sheeple will accept.

  4. It is far less difficult to dance on the head of a pin than to even stand on the point.
    But the circus that came to town left the pinheads in some mindshaft dead and drown.
    A little yellow ribbon is all t’was found.

  5. Mary Fallin the new govorner, told Oklahoma Chief Justice Steven W. Taylor that she would “support, obey and offend” the U.S. and State Constitution.

    Now there is no reason to get all heliotrope over this. Or even pink. The fact of the matter is that the entire “government” is an offense to the Constitution. Regardless of any words that have been spoken, it is the acts of ‘governance’ that tell the tale beyond any rinky dink rhetoric we here from this criminal syndicate.

    As it is “sedition” according to previously struck down statute to articulate such a view as I have, I can only remind my critics that ‘ignorance is no excuse under the law’. The law I speak of is that of the Constitution itself. Those who pretend that some sort of verbal boogie-woogie hoochiecoo can deflect from the disparagement levied against the Constitution by the present system, are living in a delusion. Any sane reading of that document makes this self evident.

    “I have come not to praise Caesar but to bury him.”~Mark Antony

    I will not lend my allegiance to the empire.

    I do not recognize any legitimacy held ‘Under Color of Authority’ by the criminal syndicate now posturing in DC. As per reason and law, this is their problem not mine. As per the practical issues of power and force, I recognize it could be made my problem should I be perceived as wielding some influence beyond “my station”.

    “We don’t need no stinking badges”.

    My credentials are my powers of reason. None other are needed—thus sayeth the rules of critical thinking, rules which are the basis for all just law.

    I do not present a physical challenge to this system, I present an intellectual challenge, one of reason and sanity. The system is criminal and should be dealt with by lawful means unless made impossible by the state itself. It is up to the state to stand TO law and order, as well as impose it.

    \\ll//

  6. “I do not present a physical challenge to this system, I present an intellectual challenge”

    We have been watching twenty-five years of committee efforts to link the intellectual and law savvy sect with the Loughners MK Deltas.

    They’ve even given them some [intel]lectual theoretical mumbo-jumbo that loosely links the constitution to insanity.

    Rachel Maddow and other media morphs, Napolitano and judicial twisted sista’s like
    Kagan and Soto are changing the landscape rapidly. What a freaky circus it has become. Hurry Hurry Step right Down……….

  7. There is no rule of law. In America, it was buried a long time ago when citizens gave the “keys to the country” to their abusive teenage children and said, “Here you go, the car and the candy store are yours”. Mom and I are going out to the movies to live a virtual life, and we’re not coming back.

    We have the “rule of cabal”. Without accountability and justice (organized and impartial investigation, prosecution, and imposition of punishment) we have got the “Free-for-All-for-All-Criminals” who want to participate in the pillaging and murder.

    We don’t even have vigilante justice! The citizenry does not work out its will to obtain justice by any means. When was the last time a Congress member was kidnapped (ala Mission Impossible…cue the music) and held while a case was made over the internet for this person’s guiltiness? How about a corporate head being compromised and entrapped and taken out of the picture of directing the stealing of American’s wealth?

    Naw. Everyone looks to the corrupt and flaccid governmental justice system to do the work of securing Americans. Sheriff Bo from Swampy Bottom never even conducts an arrest of local business gangsters. He just jumps on the payroll and looks the other way.

    I expect to see things get to the point when vigilantism becomes society’s only outlet of expression for achieving accountability for the crimes committed against it by the criminal elite and criminal underlings.

  8. The theory of just law is sound. There is no need to reinvent the wheel here. The legacy of Jefferson alone is enough to provide the most profound understanding of the principles of Liberty and just law.

    The path to Liberty may be obscured due to the weeds of deceit that have grown up in it, but the map is still here in the writings of the founders of the republic.

    Simply mowing the weeds down is insufficient, they must be pulled out by the root. Even more than tending to the Constitution is assuming the mind-set of the Declaration, for the mind-set of the enemy is the same as at that time. The original formula is there at hand. For this to be substituted by the French formula would be to fall directly into the hands of the Money Powers, for the French template of revolution is of their design.

    Brzezinski emphasizes “that America’s primary interest is to help ensure that no single power comes to control this geopolitical space and that the global community has unhindered financial and economic access to it.”[3]

    And just who is the “global community”? This is the key to understanding all of this, because “the common man” is NOT part of the “global community” that community is a small group of elite families. Any prole who thinks these people feel a sense of community with larger mankind is an idiot.

    Washington DC, January 16, 2011 – The US intelligence community is now in a manic fit of gloating over this weekend’s successful overthrow of the Tunisian government of President Ben Ali. The State Department and the CIA, through media organs loyal to them, are mercilessly hyping the Tunisian putsch of the last few days as the prototype of a new second generation of color revolutions, postmodern coups, and US-inspired people power destabilizations. At Foggy Bottom and Langley, feverish plans are being made for a veritable Mediterranean tsunami designed to topple most existing governments in the Arab world, and well beyond. The imperialist planners now imagine that they can expect to overthrow or weaken the governments of Libya, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Algeria, Yemen, and perhaps others, while the CIA’s ongoing efforts to remove Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi (because of his friendship with Putin and support for the Southstream pipeline) make this not just an Arab, but rather a pan-Mediterranean, orgy of destabilization.

  10. Montaigne writes about about the failure of his own faculties to aid him in his comprehension of the world. We don’t even understand the past – despite our “fantastic, imaginary, false privileges that man has arrogated to himself, of regimenting, arranging, and fixing truth” – so how can we possibly see what will happen in the future? We can’t. The beauty of Montaigne is that he presents a way forward through the gloom. How do we proceed? Through waver, doubt and inquiry. Taleb offers a similar view in Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan, and that’s what makes the books so enjoyable….one of the most interesting aspects of Taleb’s philosophy is his attack on “epistemic arrogance” and its application to value” investment.

    “..so how can we possibly see what will happen in the future?”~Montaigne

    The only way to successfully predict the future is to plan it—or study and pay attention to the planners. A reading of the Protocols for example, details the agenda quite nicely.
    The founders of the US were “conspiracy theorists”, by this manner they were able to gain liberty for at least two generations.

  11. ‘The founders of the US were “conspiracy theorists”, by this manner they were able to gain liberty for at least two generations”.

    And by this state-of-being, they determined to not believe everything they were told through their media of the time, they were familiar with professional and institutional lies and liars, they had been persecuted and defrauded themselves, and been “conspired against” by others. The were “realists” not “virtualists”, they possessed common sense and instincts enough to tell them when predators were about, they understood banking, real money, fiat money, and they understood men’s greed and lust for power. O.K. That’s a short list.

    I will stand right here on this stump, not going out on a limb, when I say Only Fools choose to ignore the vast conspiracies and operations which have been run over the course of history by men seeking wealth, power, and control. We’re in the middle of the Perfect Storm right now.

    • I join you on that stump Boom for it is solid ground not a shakey limb.

      WE are living in a time when more history, more access than has ever existed is at our finger tips.

      Not knowing is the height of folly. And thus ignorance generates the tempest itself.
