It’s What the Babies Eat: Inflammatory Capitalism in Mush

Again, you can’t shuttle through the headlines, the so-called news, without having spasms and fits. You will not get journalists doing shit to really go after the capitalists, uh? Baby food. And these transnational Wall Street thieves, these stockholding companies, not even a slap on the wrist. So, if I as an unjabbed person goes […] The post It’s What the Babies Eat: Inflammatory Capitalism in Mush first appeared on Dissident Voice. - Dissident Voice

Patriarchy:  The Struggle Continues

In a day when America is ruling over a global Empire maintained with violent enforcement to insure universal subordination to its will;  and in a day when a military-style domestic police state relentlessly makes sure anti-government protest and dissent is contained,  the patriarchal part of that America has been enhanced and strengthened.

Military Vaccine Mandate: A Teachable Moment

On August 25, two days after the US Food and Drug Administration fully approved  the Pfizer-Biontech COVID-19 vaccine, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin ordered “full vaccination of all members of the Armed Forces.” Cue outrage and objection.

“Language” Arguments Against Immigration Freedom are a Tower of Babble

When debating immigration policy with people who have deluded themselves into believing that it’s any of their business where other people choose to live or work, I run into a lot of bad arguments.

Catalyst in detail: Mon, 20 Sep 2021 09:34:44

A case is presented in this book that today’s 3D printers are crude compared with whatever will be in your homes in the near future. Technology can potentially eradicate all inequality. It will certainly reduce inequality even if we don’t aim for that. Synthetic biology allows the creation of new forms of life, and nanotech could eventually allow anything to be manufactured in a garage. Monopolies of wealth and power will be shattered, everything will be delegated to the individual or to smaller communities. The entire production process will be able to take place in the home. If we share everything nobly when the time of this technological singularity arrives, economics itself will be obsolete and all things will be available to all people. Unlimited fuel and unlimited materials will be circulated to all. WE HAVE SEEN POWER IN THE DNA OF OUR TECHNOLOGY. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html

Catalyst in detail: Mon, 13 Sep 2021 09:26:46

Trying to read the future forces us to master an understanding of the will of history. In the Catalyst Thesis of 2013, it is written, “Because humans are only a transitory animal, being human at this time might necessitate being transhumanist in one’s hopes for the future – wanting to shape ourselves into something better. Nietzsche teaches that, as humans, we as a society must necessarily be in transit or we will regress to an inferior state of life. If we stop our journey and go against our transitory nature, becoming too comfortable in our shells, we fall. Even if we stumbled on our path, and produced calamity in our efforts to transform ourselves and the world for the sake of humanity’s own power and security, our nature as a changing society shall mean we are still right. Nietzsche’s ideas concerning human destiny and the risks entailed are quite clear. “Man is a rope stretched between the animal and the Superman – a rope over an abyss”, Nietzsche says, drawing an analogy between a fatal stunt and the need for humans to find value in life by striving for perfection and power in the world. Nietzsche’s contention is that humans are transitional creatures. No person or society can claim to be perfect or complete in their current state. At best, they can claim to be pioneers towards a better state.” Consider the kinds of technological opportunities that exist, and perceive whether they offer radical options to empower the people. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html
