Second Hand Thinking

Perhaps the politicos might want to rejoice in their perceived unity of faith and second thoughts. The obvious pursuant in burying decisions in a colleague of an Alice in Wonderland world of new ideas and creative social engineered policy makers, in that lies a dialectical Dante's Inferno. Expanding on a Darwinist evolution of specious attacks on free market principles, while standing on their populist soapbox, the progressives stand to lose sight of the nose that rests on the face of Smith's magnum opus on freedom and economics.

Perhaps the war on obesity, trying to regulate the Internet as a public utility, attempting to ultra-regulate all forms of industry leads one down the NRA memory lane. Does this administration really come to the conclusion that the only Washington unabated can lead us from temptation? Whom are we protecting, the cabbie in Hoboken, the blacksmith in Rock Springs, the best boy in Culver City?

Why aren't the principles of freedom, liberty, free markets, capitalism, the natural rights of man, individuals bill of rights, the natural inclination to be free be promoted as virtue and the natural conquest of individuality... instead of being hijacked by the collective thieves of reason?

Reason one...the French miracle, the discover of intellectual reason that lead to two centuries of war and chaos under the guise of revolution. Regardless of the empirical evidence of decline and the conflicts of the intelligentsia in creating an abstract form of reason.

Reason two...the reason being reasoned played from the top down, enlightenment does not formulate from the top it festers in the bottom. This distortion of reality is a common theme found in all intellectual groups, the lack of engendering forms of experience. How far is too far removed?

Reason Three...mistakes in soft science is more destructive than a failure in hard science. The 20th century is full of soft science folly, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Pinochet, Idi Amin, Ho Chi Min, Gerhart Eisler, Lukacs, Chavez, Bela Kun, Che', Andre Malraux, Mussolini, Franco, Nazis, Fascists, Communists, Maoists, North Korea, Liberalism, Hitler and Woody Allen.

Reason Four...Maximizing Ideologies...Hailing Hegel, Marx, Malthus, Nietzsche, Darwin, Freud, Marcuse, John Dewey, Wilhelm Reich, The Cheka Intellectuals, Frankfurt school, Muenzenberg,
Anarchy, Nihilism, National Social Democratic party, secularism, Anthropological social engineering, Constitutional perversity, Egalitarianism, Pavlovian Utopia, Relativism realities, Governmental entitlements, Educational tyranny, Spectacle entertainment, Irrelevancy Obsessions, Existentialism.

Reason Five...Intellectual Purgatory...The rationing of objective reality, by criminalizing empirical evidence. By continually reinventing reality, the sanctimonious sophist or the modern sophisto, have conquered the art of the fallacy. Scientific propaganda has reached epic levels of toxicity, by debasing the value of the individual through ignoring the natural duality of man.

Reason Six...God like symptoms of the universe...Marx expounds on a challenge to god and the hatred of life, "I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above...I wander godlike through the ruins of the world...I feel equal to the creator. Everything in existence is worth being destroyed." No wonder when clarity is suppressed...stupidity itself reigns supreme. The progressives mission is to destroy and not to edify; their passion for destruction is a creative passion.

Reason Seven...The Sophistos visceral contempt for common sense and the common man. Tough with grit and sweat, the common free man and through the death of mercantilism; practical man has unleashed a power of creativity and commerce unmatched at anytime in human history. Such contempt for the productive citizen hath no friend in centering their focus on the works of the soft science crowd and lacking in the sense that is so common in the common man who has driven Capitalism to new heights, by raising a creativity in free market principles. Without a functioning rational, the intelligentsia remains infused with totalitarian rational as they rationalize resentment...

Reason Eight...Descartes, " I think, therefore I am." A point of self realization and the embryo of moral relativism...By banishing Descartes, we move forward from the abstract of being to a functioning rational of ethics and moral clarity. To think that rational alone moves humanity in such a fashion is clearly folly and fiction. To speak of promise and yet deliver ambiguity of meaning; is unto itself to think like Descartes...

Reason Nine...Paradiso, "all'alta fantasia qui manco`possa," literally looking into the face of god. To be me or just to be...abstract or allegorical? Is this canon or the acceptance of principles bound socially in utilitarian monologues? Kant we just get confusing a moral autonomy for a persons lack of understanding its meaning unto itself. So to ration free will by claiming that it is inconceivable that a person is capable of knowing or understanding their freedom; likens the maxim to control the act, thereby reducing its worth into a categorical imperative of good will and moral duty.

In Kahlil Gibran's "Satan" the traveler is confined by the dilemma of good will and moral duty. The traveller is bound by his utilitarian principles for all the greater good...should I let Satan lie or would God be if the antithesis is gone? To kill god, then fear ceases, to exit from causation results in absence; and utility becomes its own relevance. How can morality be graded on deference if it is perceived as indifferent to its cause? By claiming that morality is in of itself relative to the cultural morality of the society. You invite second hand thinking; to ignore the difference between the morality in supporting and maintaining the promotion of life or cling to the subjective idea, that it is the idea that contains the morality.

The New Frontier- Technosophistoes

Alongside the cultivation and consumption of various canaboids and hallocegenics, the sophistoes have, historically, been utterly active within the fields of history, philosophy and economics. Sophistos have introduced glorious terms such as “expropriation of surplus value”, “dialectics” and the loathed “theory of alienation”. What the sophisto theories have in common is their foundation in pseudo science and their lack of common sense. Common sense and life experience was usually enough for sane people to realize that the dictatorship of proletariat was a mere fiction of imagination, and was subsequently beaten down by the faltered Soviet Union. The sophist model seem to be to take a seemingly absurd idea, prove it with rambling philosophy, avoid real life examples and reinforce it with the iron hand of Stalin. A good example would be socialism; which was “proven” with rambling books by marx and lening which contained thousands of pages of quotes in ancient Greek and French, which was considered scientific at the time, but seemingly no proof based on logic and real life experience. Ironically, in many socialist nations the questioning of these insane theories was usually attributed to mental illness and was rewarded with reeducation or death penalty. 150 years of rambling about the above tedious topics in coffee shops and universities all over the world has, surely, alienated the sophistoes from the rest of the world, and the lack of applicability to everyday life has expropriated them of their value to humanity. Fact is that these old school sophistoes are getting extinct, their failure to actually contribute to society has left them with no sphere of influence. Fact is that sitting on lawns or in coffee shops, while high on thc, has no impact on society, the 60’s are over no one cares. Even the smart sophistoes are dead to the world, their failure to at least get a PhD and ramble away in a classroom has past them by. So is sophistoism dead? Did common sense win? Is the battle over?

The answer is NO!

A new and evolved breed of 21st century sophistoes has taken over. Surprisingly, there are still sophistoes out there, banging their heads against the same walls as their proletarian brethren did many years ago. The new sophisto does not care about the struggles of industrial workers, doesn’t drink coffee and stays far away from both cafés and university campuses. The new sophisto, hereby named “tecno-sophisto”, has unique properties in the sophisto kingdom. Starting with their physical appearance; usually skinny, bad skin and a musculature which would make former proletarians turn in their grave. The tecno-sophisto is usually a high-school dropout with a knack for computer programming and a deep regard for space and star trek. Despite their, often times, advanced scientific knowledge, these pinhead-proletarians exhibit the same braindead drone-like mental aptitude as their cousins, the coffee-shop sophistoes. The difference between the new and old type of sophistoes is that the latter doesn’t exhibit the almost sexual attraction to industrial-workers and Greek philosophers. The new frontier fort the techno-sophistoes is the golden art of pseudo-science! Naturally, one would assume that someone who spends all his time pondering string theory and figuring out the mass of a black-hole would have a scientific mindset and approach issues of science with a clear mind, but this is not the case. The science-sophistoes is on a crusade to legitimize the vastly overrated myth of manmade global warming, using a classical sophisto approach: spreading a political agenda, faking evidence, harassment of disinters and taking themselves too seriously.

The first item on the sophisto agenda is to use non-issues, such as the expropriation of surplus value, to spread a political agenda. One can easily see that the global-warming issue is created for three reasons: increase government control of industrial output, increase taxes and with the help of UN mandated regulatory agencies increase the power of global government. Global warming serves as a vehicle for the communistic ideas of old school sophistos.

The manufacturing of evidence traces back to Stalins attempts to exaggerate industrial output in the Soviet Union in order to increase global faith in communism. Communism was thereby given legitimacy by fake evidence. It is nowadays commonly known that the effects of global warming were vastly exaggerated and mainly a sophisto figment of imagination.

Harassment of dissenters is yet another tactic tracing back to the ABC of Communism by Nikolai Bukharin and Yevgeni Preobrazhensky. Stalin later perfected this tactic by claiming that anyone negative towards communism must be mentally ill. So, ironically, people seeking to discuss issues regarding global warming usually found their e-mail accounts spammed, garden filled with angry protestors and their names defamed on the internet. Furthermore, a suggestion ws made to the EU that disregard for man-made global warming should be considered a mental illness. Déjà vu? I think not!

The issue of these science-sophisos and their questionable legitimacy comes full circle when one takes a look at the fourth and final sophisto trait, namely; taking themselves way too seriously. The science sophistos are seemingly more serious and trustworthy than the common sophisto because of their supposedly focus on science. However one has to remember than even a science-sophisto is still a sophisto, Marx was also considered science 150 years ago. Therefore, ramblings about global warming are just ramblings, an interest for time travel or computer programming doesn’t not make it true.
