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.
