Playing The Game

Playing the game called "America" is a long standing, popular phenomenon. Most everyone chooses to play. You can play "America" or you can play other games, or you can choose not to play any games in particular. Playing the game is optional and you are free to leave the game at any time; though relatively few do leave the game once they begin playing, regardless of lack of personal reward and in spite of great personal losses, up to and including their own lives. For those who play "America", nothing else matters. To them, non-players and their lives are deemed not important at all. In fact they are often perceived as a threat to the game. Nothing will stop the game. The game is everything.

A game by definition is a competition, so all players are competitors; and what is a competitor but an opponent? In this game everyone is your enemy, and you must live your life perceiving all others as either friend or foe. Those who are not friends are foes by default, according to game code.

The game I'm referring to is not much different than any role playing game you can play online. You must choose your identity and construct your physical appearance from available provided components, leaving you little flexibility toward making yourself unique. This is generally not a problem as most players don't desire to be unique. Quite the opposite. They are strongly motivated by the desire to be exactly the same as the others in their own sector of the game board; and a great many players desire to be exactly the same as currently popular generic/iconic public figures advertised by the game itself.

You can never be truly unique in the game because whatever components you choose to construct yourself with, will also be chosen by millions of others. The individual selection and reconfiguration of provided components lends the impression of uniqueness, but by design the game cannot accommodate true uniqueness. Being unique in the game is prohibited because it imposes unwanted challenges to the code and could overwrite the code. Overwriting the code is strictly forbidden and will not be tolerated. Attempts to overwrite the code will result in expulsion from the game.

You have chosen to enter the game to play the game, and that is what you will spend your every waking moment doing for the rest of your life. The only way you can truly excel within the game is by playing the game better than others in some way or another. Endless winning through endless competition is what lies at the foundation of your new value system, the value system provided by the game code. Because prizes are limited and quite hard to get, you understand that unless you become very skilled at playing the game you will never win more than what you need to simply stay in the game and keep playing it. For some that is enough, but for many it's not nearly enough. For all, the chance to win great prizes is what makes it all so exciting and desirable. It's the primary reason all gamers get up in the morning. Every day is another chance to win.

Like any game there are flaws in the program but you were told long ago to believe that if you see a flaw it is either not there and you were mistaken, or there is a perfectly good reason for it that fits within the parameters of the game which are beyond your understanding or need to know. There are no other possible reasons. Anyone who suggests otherwise is to be perceived as someone with a serious cognitive impairment or as being purposely dishonest to gain attention, which is a highly coveted prize in the game. You believe that and accept it to be so. The code is always right. And because you accept the code you are always right by extension.

When I, someone who is not interested in the game, run into you, someone who is fully invested in playing the game, there is an immediate interpersonal disconnect. A tangible flash-point explodes between our bodies; and you and I will not be able to communicate meaningfully. What I say lies beyond the parameters of your game code, and what you say is of little value or use to me in the non-gaming world. There is no way to apply 'give and take' to the situation. I have nothing you're willing to take, and what you have to give is the last thing I'm interested in. I am standing here being me, being real, but you are playing a game. The problem is that you don't realize you're playing a game. The game you accepted so long ago has become, for you, an absolute truth.

Once you enter the game atmosphere it becomes the only reality there is. You don't forget completely that there is an external reality but you don't care to spend any time in it or pay it any mind. It in fact becomes undesirable out there because there are no rules and the safeguards built into the game don't exist out there. There is pain outside the game. The parameters are not predefined and given to you. People say things that are not written into the game code and this is endlessly frightening to you. It is too hard to think for yourself. It feels unsafe to trust in your own critical thinking ability. You are dependent on the code to guide you at all times. Intrusions from outside the game are unwelcome. You don't like being interrupted or yanked back into the real world to deal with unhappy things outside of the game, you want to remain inside the game and play the game at all times.

The game world is much easier than real life because all rules and parameters are predefined and provided. Once you understand the parameters and operational possibilities, you are free to do whatever you like, achieve as much as you desire, test yourself to your hearts content; but only within the specific predefined parameters and rules of the game. Your existence is minimized and simplified because the entire spectrum of choices and possibilities has been erased from your life palette. All options are removed but one, and that is the one you take. You will deny that is true because the code says it gives you everything and you believe the code.

The payoff for playing the game comes at a basic level. Although additional elevated levels are shown you so that you may aspire to them, for the vast majority of people, the basic payoff is all the reward they'll ever get. By accepting the parameters of the game and following the rules of the game, you receive the basic payoff: limited inclusion in the game. It may be limited, but it's still inclusion and inclusion means acceptance and that acceptance is what you covet. Being accepted by the game means that you officially exist and are cleared and expected to play. Many insecurities and fears vanish overnight forever the moment you decide that you will enter the game and stay there forever.

Playing the game well means you know how to do it right, you know how to play and win big prizes. But just for playing you receive standard player status, though not officially, and small rewards and praise are passed around from within groups of standard class players. They don't mean anything beyond the clutch of standard players passing them around, but they are made out to mean a lot to the clutch.

The advertised rewards for playing the game seem vast but in truth, only the lowest hanging fruit is available for most players to compete over. Usually, there really aren't that many great official physical prizes to be had. There are various levels of subsistence prizes and various kinds of nice emotional rewards, and a great many consolation prizes in pretty packaging. A perceived increase in personal status compared to other competitors is the form of gratification that is most coveted. Those who obtain a perceived increase in personal status rarely reject it. It is hard to get and it lifts the winner up to pluck fruit from much higher, sunnier, more bountiful places on the tree. This is called winning, and that's what playing the game is all about.

The first and primary reward for all players is the total release from responsibility in creating a real world to live in. Playing the game is much easier and the rhetoric about why you should play is exciting and compelling, you never tire of hearing it repeated. It makes you feel like you're a part of something special. You'd have to be nuts to not take this enormous life short cut. To play the game is to be happy, they say, and playing it right means you are doing things right and you will be acknowledged by everyone else in the game for doing it so nice and right all of the time.

The game is supposed to be fun and pretty and perfect all the time, and everyone playing the game is supposed to be happy all the time, and never have serious, sad, or otherwise sobering, horrible problems. The game does not allow for those things, except under the most special circumstances. If you have only ordinary status within the game, any real life situations that intrude will likely get you rudely and automatically rejected from the game. You will only be allowed to watch, from a distance, but you will not be allowed to play anymore, unless you somehow manage to recover completely and can return triumphant, but that is often not the case.

As you walk down the streets of the game, you sometimes notice others on the peripheral edges who have been ejected or barred access from the game. You pay them little mind because they are not important in your game playing. Involvement with them at all would cost you points, lost time, and perhaps even lay a horrible burden on you that would slow you down and cause you to lose status and momentum on the game board. You tend to see the homeless person, the minority, the screwed, as having no one but themselves to blame because they refuse to play the game like everyone else does. You dismiss them with some disgust and sometimes you don't hide how you feel from their earshot and view.

To you, there is something wrong with them, they want rewards from the game without playing the game and you perceive that as repulsive. It would make you very jealous to have to share a single one of your hard earned points with them, or see anyone else but yourself benefit from your hard earned personal game status and playing skills. You'd rather see them die or at least beaten and dragged away to prison cells where such deviant types should end up.

They frighten you like nothing else in the game because they represent an unthinkable threat to you: the taking away of rewards that have come to you as a result of your acceptance of and adherence to the game code. It goes against everything you believe that others should be able to take away your winnings from you. Accumulating your personal winnings is the basic essence and meaning of your life. They are lucky the game feeds them at all, they certainly don't deserve the kindness. The kindness is not even appreciated. Yes, you have a very hard time even granting the right to exist to anyone who doesn't play the game you play. And in your heart of hearts you think that's the right way to see things. It would never occur to you that most of those scattered along the edges of the theme park are suffering there because the rules of the game specifically prohibit their participation. It's not their fault at all. But the rules lie and say all are welcome, so that's what you believe. You believe in the code.

All of your in-game thoughts and opinions are reinforced by many others in the game with you who will also see and think and believe as you do. That singleness of mind is in no small way a reward for being a player. A large part of the enjoyment of the game is the disconnected solidarity of the players, the shared experience of knowing the rules, accepting the boundaries and parameters, and trusting the code. Even those from many disparate parts of the game board will all enjoy hearing and repeating the game slogans and listening to the game theme songs. Everyone can feel welcome to play the game and believe that the benefits of playing are there to be had by one and all. All you have to do is suspend your soul and you too can play the game and have the best time of your entire life for the length of your whole life. As the saying goes, you can't win if you don't play. And you are not just a player, you are a winner, and you deserve to win.

You believe with all your heart that playing the game with all you've got is "the answer". You would never doubt that for a minute. The endless stream of errors and glitches in the code are all a part of the game, they mean nothing, and you believe they are always and only anomalies, no matter how often or dependably they repeat. In the game, doubting the code is the one rule that must never be broken. You refuse to doubt the code. You've been reassured countless times that the code is infallible and superior and that no better gaming experience exists anywhere. This is the best game in town and you love this game. You don't mind or notice that the rules are bent for the power players, and when anyone mentions it you tell them they are liars and to shut up. No one questions the code. The code is all. The code is perfection. Doubting the code is to be stupid and evil. Belief in the code is what makes the code the perfect, gleaming thing of beauty that it is.

Well, I question the code. I don't trust the code. I don't have much respect for the game. I don't like its obvious contradictions, cheats, hacks and fixed outcomes. I don't like the dark and gargantuan mechanical underground workings churning away while no one above knows they exist because the game denies they exist. I don't like that people are led to believe the game is real, not a choice, not a diversion, not a selective escape from reality. These are the things I can see from outside of the theme park. I know the bad results of the game which the game routinely buries and denies.

As I have no interest in the game per se, I care about what I care about, and what I care about is the reality I see around me and that I live in. To the game I am a vicious enemy, a doubter, a questioner, someone who does not believe the code is superior by virtue of its mere existence. I know the code is written by ordinary mortals like myself, who are without exception flawed and weak and error prone and not above writing the code to suit themselves. In fact by not playing the game and instead walking around the theme park, especially in the restricted access areas, I have come to understand what the game is and why it is being played and why it is so important to the theme park owners to keep people excited about the game, believing in the game and playing the game with all they've got, including all their money, their bodies, and every aspect of their lives.

What I see offends me. The game is rigged. I see mass blindness, ignorance, selfishness, cruelty, and things that fly in the face of reason. Things that deny the existence of reality. Which to me, of course, makes no sense at all. It does become surreal to have to argue the case that reality is real and that it exists, when I am surrounded by so many others who angrily and condescendingly tell me that there is no such thing as reality beyond the confines of the game board, and there never could be.

Well I know better. And I feel a good bit of trepidation about a future wherein reality is erased completely from the conscious workings of the game board, and is kept hidden from all of the players by the owners, operators and copartners who all benefit handsomely from propagating the myth that reality does not exist and that whatever seems to be reality beyond the board is a lie.

What I know that few players know, that few of the players can believe or accept or even listen to is the simple reality that this game is rigged. Completely and totally. It is not natural. It is not real. It is not necessary. It is flawed, fixed and evil. And while it is true that there are parts of the theme park that are allowed to be beautiful it is only a matter of time before those small patches of reality are excised and removed from the park or marked off limits and made into something to fear or not believe in.

Because I know better I can never give up trying to show you what I see. I am not making anything up. There is an entire universe beyond the game board boundaries, whether you choose to realize it or not. Your belief does not make the reality of the universe. The universe makes its own reality which you can either choose to participate in or do something else. If you were not at such dangerous, critical points in the game I wouldn't much care what reality you chose to believe in.
But your reality as well as mine is being threatened because of your game and your undying belief in the code.

The code is wrong. The code can lie like nothing I've ever experienced in my life, it takes my breath away and never ceases to outdo itself. I am in awe of the inhuman, wicked, convoluted, hypocritical deceitfulness of the code and the extreme viscosity it uses to perpetrate the illusions it sows. Those illusions are not sown for your benefit, they are sown to benefit others at your expense. They are sown to prevent you from ever having a chance at gaining true benefit from living a real life in a real world in a way that really matters and makes a difference. Those who own the game want nothing different. And they are the most frightening people on the face of this earth.

You can consider my words or choose to dismiss them without a thought. The choice is yours. But do ask yourself this. If I am not playing the game then what rewards could I possibly be seeking? The answer is none. What other motivation might I have to say these things that question the code and try to expose its hypocrisy and evil nature? To make trouble and seek attention from the game? I seek no attention from the game. Do you enjoy trouble? Well neither do I. I do not seek trouble. That leaves few other motivations than the one I have, which is this: it matters to me that everyone knows they are in a rigged game that predates them and will eat their young and destroy this world forever if it is not exposed and stopped.

It's really that simple. Why should I care? Why shouldn't I care? It is only within your game code that all others are enemies. It is not a universal truth. If that surprises you then rest assured, there are many more surprises in store. There is a better way to live than in the game and according to game code. The game is not "the" way. It is not the end all and be all of existence. From where I stand it seems silly to have to state such an obvious fact, but I know it is not obvious to you if the game is all you've ever known.

If you ever decide to investigate the realm beyond the game board, there's a very good chance that you will see that you could actually do much better out of the game than in it. The 'better' will be in different ways, in many different forms. "Winning" is not all. Unless you consider the possibility that there is more in the universe than playing in your game you will never have the opportunity to find out if what I'm saying is true. If it is true and you never bothered to at least take a look, how will you rest in your eternal sleep? What life will you have lived when you did not bother to check for another path which was there and would have served you, in your one and only life, so much better? I know it mattered to me to check. I know I'm very glad I did.

If nothing I've said has convinced you to look beyond the game for your own sake, then I will leave you with two truths to consider. Everything there is in the whole of existence lies beyond the borders of your game code, not within it; and nothing, absolutely nothing is ONLY what it appears to be.

Political Cheats and Hacks

How do they do it? How do they get away with all of those bald faced lies and crimes? It truly is amazing isn't it? The fact is they do get away with the most honkin' wombat lies and despicable crimes anyone ever committed but somehow, nobody catches on, or at least none of the major establishment media outlets ever get a clue. They miss lie after crime after stinkin' lie.

Well that's just such a shame that I wanted to help. So, I went to a reliable independent source and got the official list of Political Cheats and Hacks that everyone should know and be familiar with so that anyone or their dog or even the biggest establishment media outlets could see the tricks, cheats and hacks, point them out, and win big prizes like not being politically unconscious stenographer twinkies anymore.

If the big boy thugs can know these cool hacks, why shouldn't everyone know them? It is good to know things. The more things we all know the better for us.

What struck me personally about the list is how what it describes as grown-up, legitimate, complex political strategies, are a lot like the juvenile bully games you can find on almost any grade school playground. But that's just my impression, see what you think.

Here's the official list:

Shitface - Playing shitface is very popular on the political stage. In essence, when confronted with a chunk of truth or when reasonably certain a chunk of truth is about to be released to the public, and that chunk of truth makes you look bad, exposes your wrong doing, hypocrisy or crime, or reveals your nasty-ass values and criminal interests to the public and you know the public will find you despicable and eject you from your power perch if they knew those things, you want to stop it as fast as you can.

If you want to prevent it before it even comes close to happening, Shitface is the hack for you. All you have to do is pick up a huge stinking handful of any available verbal excrement you can find nearby, including your own, and in public, before witnesses and television cameras, fling that handful of stinking dripping verbal excrement directly at the face of your opponent. When it smacks him in the face and the stench and revulsion begin to sink in, point at him and cry, "Shitface!!"

Now you and all your team must stand side by side, point at him and sing, "You are a shitface! You are a shitface! Nah nah nanah nah! Everybody look at the shitface! Ha ha!"

Everybody will look at the shitface, however briefly, and they will cry out, "Look at the Shitface!" "That Guy is a Shitface!" "Yikes! It's a Shitface!"

Then the TV and newspapers will immediately begin to pump out stories about what a shitface the guy is. They will make it up as they go and say, "He's been a shitface for a long time" and "He's always been a shit face for as long as I've known him" and "I never knew he was a shitface but I should have known, it was obvious." "What kind of shit was it, anyone know?" "Yes, it was (whatever kind of) shit!" "Didn't he have shit on his face before?" And they will bring in people from everywhere who will say they knew what a Shitface he was a long time ago. They will do long broadcasts on the whole topic of Shitfaces and how Shitfaced they are and why we should hate them for it.

It does not matter that the shit doesn't have any relation to the person who has been shitfaced. It does not matter that he did not put the shit on his own face. It does not matter that the people who threw the shit did it to lie and cheat. It does not matter that the shit on his face will destroy him, personally and professionally for the rest of his life. It certainly doesn't matter that he was coming to the people to give them the precious rare substance known as reality that would help set them free from the kind of people who play Shitface and cheat and who are criminals. All that matters is that he has shit on his face, no matter how it got there, or who threw it at him, or that the people who did that to him are the scum of the earth. Because all people will see when they look, is a guy standing there with shit on his face and they will be grossed out and reject him forever.

Same As - Same As is a very popular cheat that can be played by any half talented cheater or hack. The object of the cheat is to make your nasty ugly self look good by saying that you are the same as something that is very good indeed. Just forget all the damning truth about your amoral thug real self and say you are the same as Jesus, or Freedom and Democracy. That sounds much better than saying, "I want to kill everybody because I'm a raging sociopath asshole". It works even better when you can pay other people to say fantastic sounding "same as" things about you, especially all on the same day.

It is very compelling when people walk by and hear, "He is the same as all that is good and fine and true!", and "He is the same as doing everything right all of the time!", and "He is the same as the best thing ever!" People will say to themselves, he must be the same as a good thing and I think I shall vote for him.

It also works in reverse and can be used to destroy your opponent by saying, "He is the same as a crook and a rat and a liar and child molester and a terrorist and he does terrible things to small animals". When people walk by and hear that they will think, he is the same as a bad thing, I do not think I will vote for him".

It is a good game for any self aggrandizing meretricious hack and liar to get himself into a sweet spot and stay there.

Hide The Skunk - You have to be a pretty slick operator to pull this cheat off. Hide The Skunk requires one thing: you must have the ability to get a lot of people to voluntarily sit down and listen to you talk and go on and on until you are done. That makes Hide The Skunk of primary interest in big politics, the church, and organizations that front themselves as good and decent things like humanitarian organizations, charities, NGO's, foreign aid, national defense, your government and the like but which are also used to hide their various skunks which are elements of those organizations that are the exact opposite of or worse than what the organization stands for. Regular guys can play Hide The Skunk and lots of them do every day, but since they don't affect millions of lives they are irrelevant for the purposes of this article.

The basic goal of Hide the Skunk is to justify something that cannot be justified. The thing is so bad that it can't be justified no where, no how, no time, never, because it is crass, despicable, filthy, murderous and otherwise unacceptable. In spite of that, you want to do it anyway, but it would be seen and done in public view which would bust you in five minutes, so you need to Hide The Skunk. You literally have to hide all of the filthiness and death and cheating and corruption in a way that even though it's right there in front of everyone they will think it is actually something else.

Here is an example of Hide The Skunk. "War on terror" The skunk is very well hidden simply by asserting a drooling down the shirt dumb notion that you can wage a physical war on a non-sentient, nonphysical concept that amounts to a word in the dictionary. This is actually a proclamation of calling out the troops to fire on words in the dictionary because they are "bad" words. This would of course be ridiculous beyond comprehension and can't happen. Yet few stop to ask themselves, "Gee, if they aren't shooting dictionaries, what are they shooting?"

This is precisely why Hide The Skunk is the #1 preferred hack and cheat of politics. Professional highly skilled Hide The Skunk architects can hide the biggest, stinkiest skunks you've ever seen in your whole entire life. They can hide skunks that are bigger than Godzilla. In fact, there are so many hidden skunks all around us that have been piling up for years and years and years as politicians come, hide skunks, and go, that we are up to our eyeballs in hidden skunks. There's so many dang hidden skunks on every street in this country that you can't take five steps without tripping on them.

You can't see or find hidden skunks because they are expertly hidden, but you can't get away from the smell. In the heat of things sometimes the smell gets so unbearable that people will begin to say, "Hey, do you smell that? It stinks to high heaven around here. Is that a skunk smell?" When people begin to smell the hidden skunks, that can be handled with another game called "Your Brains Fell Out" or "You Are Mean And Hate Me For No Reason".

Your Brains Fell Out - Your Brains Fell Out is a great and easy game and hack and politicians love it. Your Brains Fell Out can get any first degree scum bag out of almost any hot water. Here's an example. When you've played Hide The Skunk and the skunks can't be seen but the stench is getting pretty intense and people come up to you and say, "I smell a skunk. Did you hide a skunk somewhere around here because I smell a skunk, I'm sure of it". You can say, "Your brains fell out!" and just walk away. Your Brains Fell Out is a sister to Shitface, but here it attempts to discredit people who are not asleep at the switch and who know what a skunk smells like. Your Brains Fell Out works so well that even when someone follows the smell to the hidden skunk and finds the skunk and comes back and says, "Hey! I found your hidden skunk!", and you reply with, "Your Brains Fell Out!" and walk away, then everyone listening will think that person's brains fell out and they won't believe he found any skunk at all.

It gets better though. Even when someone finds the skunk and takes some tail hairs and shoots many photographs and has eye witness accounts of you coming by and hiding your skunk and they saw you do it, you can still use "Your Brains Fell Out" and it will still, amazingly, continue to work. People will still not believe the actual real skunk tail hairs are real and they will say the skunk pictures are fakes and the skunk witnesses are liars whose brains fell out too.

Your Brains Fell Out is standard policy signed into law by our Federal Government back in 1865. They stand by it and have used it for every major government covered up crime since the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

The only way to shoot down Your Brains Fell Out is when it is shot down by a person of higher rank than yourself, although even that doesn't always work but it can work if vigorously applied. Should such a thing be happening to you, all is not lost. There is yet another game called "Shut Up Forever".

Shut Up Forever - This is a sticky wicket of a game that is not recommended for the small fish in the pond. This is best reserved for the very largest sharks. Shut up Forever shuts up anyone forever. This is best accomplished by having them die. Political thugs and hacks have ways of getting this done, so that part of the game will not be covered here.

You Are Mean And Hate Me For No Reason - Premise and use identical to "Your Brains Fell Out". Usually used in combination with "You Have To Feel Sorry For Me Because I Know About Some People Who Are Long Dead But Had Horrible Lives", or "It's Not My Fault If You're Too Stupid To Worship The Right God". You Are Mean And Hate Me For No Reason is highly flexible and can be used with many other qualifying add-ons seamlessly.

. . . . . . . .

That's all there is to it. Just by consistently using all of the above hacks and cheats in your political games, you are next to guaranteed to get into office and hold that office and do whatever you like and get away with it, no matter how vile, despicable, disgusting, criminal, untrustworthy, murderous, hypocritical, immoral, inhuman and overall creepy you are. This Sack o' Political Hacks and Cheats (SOPHAC) is the best thing ever for nasty people all around the world!

. . . . . . . . . .
Want to test yourself? The following is a real live quote from the dark Lord Dick Cheney who is a high master of using the SOPHAC to crush people everywhere without them being able to make him stop.

From this article in today's ICH: While in Afghanistan in 2004, the dark lord told U.S. troops, "Your children and my grandchildren will live in freedom tomorrow because of what you're doing today." and "Freedom still has enemies here in Afghanistan. And you are here to make those enemies miserable."

Is he impressive or what? How many ultra sophisticated SOPHAC hacks can this guy cram into a few short sentences? How many skunks can anyone hide? Apparently there is no limit and that's exactly why the standard handy Sack O' Political Cheats and Hacks is the #1 indispensable tool for any up and coming power-craving dark lord wanna-be and already instated mean guys, thugs and liars alike. And just think, when the SOPHAC is used in combination with state of the art PR lies and the proven and highly evil psychological operations tactics available today, nothing can stop you. Throw in heavy weapons and butt-kissing, for-sale lawmakers and badda-bing, you can be unbeatable! Cool huh? Don't be in office without it, or else YOU might be the next Shitface or Shut Up Forever loser in the papers!

Which Is Better?

You there! Yes you. I have a question for you. Might you have an opinion on this? Do you know what you're talking about? Want to find out if you're right? Want to sound off about it? Of course you do! All right then, heeeeeere is your question:

"Which is better, chocolate or vanilla?"

You've got five seconds. Four seconds, three... Think about it, think about your answer? Great, what is it? Well you're wrong. No matter what you said, your answer is incorrect.

"What? What? What an impertinent little wench! How dare she presume to know what I think!" Gee sparky, calm down, I don't have a clue what you think. I don't need to have a clue what your answer was to know you didn't get it right. Come with me on this, it won't hurt a bit.

Ask the next five people you meet that exact same question and my money is on the probability that they will say that either one or the other of those two things is "better". Why? Because people don't think. The question as stated above is not a question that can be answered, because it's not even a question. It seems like it's a question, but there really is no question in it. In order to answer the question, we'd need to ask our own questions just to figure out what the question is before we could even try to answer it.

The reason is obvious once you stop and look at it. Something is missing. No values have been specified for this question. We don't even know what we're talking about. What is the subject here, ice cream? Cookies? Birthday cake? Wine? Dog food? Do they mean hot or cold? Early or late? Mass produced or freshly made? Are we talking taste or smell? Is this some sort of raunchy racial slang? Are these candle scents or color choices?

In order to determine if "A" is better than "B" we have to specifically know what they are first. We also have to know what "better" means. Better how? Better at what? Better than what? Better for what? Better for whom? Better under what circumstances? An actual question has not been specified. There can't be a "right" answer when there's no question in the first place.

Folks tend to auto-assume and auto-supply things, like what "A" and "B" are and what "better" means; not based on facts but on personal relevance. When answering a question like the above one, the fact of the matter is that neither the questioner or the responder will really know what the question was or what the answer means. There is no actual information exchange going on here. It is not genuine communication where one conveys real information to another and the other can receive it with the specific intended values intact. This is not person to person, mind to mind connecting, it's a total miss. The entire exchange is based on open ended, non-specified criteria that each party assumes and supplies for himself without bothering to check if any of those assumptions match.

In the chocolate v. vanilla question it might be assumed to mean which of these tastes more pleasing to you? It's a simple little question and chances are that's exactly what was meant by the question. None the less, "which of these tastes more pleasing to you" is a completely different question than the nonspecific non-question of, "Which is better, chocolate or vanilla?"

Clearly this particular question is of no great importance but it does convey the point I'm trying to make. If it's this easy to fail to recognize the built-in fail on a non-important topic like this, consider how often this sort of standard fail exchange goes on in subjects that are critical and very important. Matters of love, justice, politics, marketing, life and death. Toss in complexity and honest factual errors, much less intentional deception and purposeful manipulation, obfuscation and lies, and wow, nobody knows what anyone's really saying or hearing or talking about because nobody's really paying attention and looking for specified/asserted values. We auto-insert the values, meanings, perspectives and framing. It's a massive fail, yet everyone walks away thinking they know exactly what just transpired and assuming everyone is on the same page.

The scary cherry on top is that this knee jerk assumption response is not done consciously. We don't even realize we've assumed anything. We think we've been asked a specific question, and would swear to it. And what was the supposed specific question asked? Whatever we auto-inserted the values to be. We'll argue it to the ground, we feel certain that a specific question was asked but the fact is, it never was.

We are not encouraged to habitually think in basic, specific, clear terms when big or small questions or value statements roll by, and they do roll by constantly. It's so easy to become habitually sloppy thinkers who don't really think at all. We believe we're thinking but we're not thinking critically. We are only responding to stimuli from a knee jerk, non-thinking self-centered core. Instead of immediately spotting the obviously missing pertinent data in a non-question, recognizing the complete lack of stated facts or defined values, and realizing there is nothing actually being said or asked, we simply fill in the blanks ourselves. We automatically supply and inject the point, context and meaning from our own subjective values.

It's more insidious than that though, much more. This kind of non-thinking response also sets up a bizarre, quite dangerous style of egocentric closed circular thinking that can be destructive. It works by making an external "thing" good or bad intrinsically, based on what we think of it. In other words, if you say vanilla is better than chocolate, then vanilla "is" good and chocolate "is" bad. You are deciding their value in the world for everyone else because of what you happen to like or dislike. It's a complete disconnect from reality.

When our own subjective values subconsciously morph into external non-debatable value judgments about some external thing, it reverses reality. It is not the chocolate or vanilla that are either good or bad just sitting there being chocolate and vanilla. They aren't good or bad and can't be good or bad without a context. Chocolate might be bad for breakfast but it's great for dessert. It can't be all bad one minute and all good the next. The only thing that can establish any value judgments of bad or good are whether they are bad or good in a specific situation and with the specific people involved in it. The chocolate and vanilla never change their intrinsic value, they just are what they are, and what they are is chocolate and vanilla. How they are valued is what's different and that depends wholly on who's looking at them.

In fact, the actual question isn't even about chocolate or vanilla, the question is about somebody's personal position in regards to chocolate or vanilla. Yet, with sloppy non-critical thinking, the question is auto morphed into whether it is the chocolate or the vanilla that is either good or bad. This judgment of worth or value, of goodness or badness puts the responder in the creepy position of self-appointed judge decider of people and things outside himself, which is goofy.

I can give you a real life example of this. I went out on a date once with a guy who absolutely hated what I ordered. He couldn't get it through his head that he wasn't the one who was going to eat it. His own value judgment was something he'd assigned as a factual universal reality to my food choice which in his mind made it horrible at all times and to all persons no matter who was eating it. He felt as if I was breaking some sort of cast in stone rule and he got offended. I wasn't breaking any rules and I wasn't being offensive. His personal rules don't apply to me. His personal rules don't exist anywhere in the universe except inside his own head. His personal rules don't apply to anyone but himself. This was his rule, not mine. If he can hate it, I can love it. There is no problem here. Everyone gets what they want. Unless they're incapable of comprehending that everyone gets to value the world for themselves, and they refuse to allow others to do so.

That was a weird date. It's this exact kind of inability to know where you end and somebody else begins that is at the heart of so much fighting, bickering, arguing and violence. Strange notions that our personal preferences and values are somehow instantly universal facts that others are obligated and required to abide by are pervasive in our society and everywhere else for that matter. Other people are not obligated to do anything we think, where do we get this notion? The fastest way I can think of to bring unhappiness and discord into your own life and into the world generally is to have the delusion that others have to do things your way. It's like lighting a stick of TNT and sitting on it. It will blow up, sooner or later, that's a guarantee.

A personal preference does not equate to a legitimate or even pertinent statement of value of something external to ourselves. Something may have no value to me personally, but that's not the same as it having no value. I may think something out there is wonderful but you might hate it. It's not that one of us is right and the other is wrong, in fact, that's a false parameter. There is no right or wrong in external objects beyond the right and wrong for us personally which means we can totally disagree on something but both be right. No matter it's value to us, that external something out there we're arguing about isn't changed or altered or affected by how we value it in relation to ourselves. It just is.

People are incredibly programmed to miss all of these things. We don't think critically and many can't tell the difference between facts and opinions, between mine and yours, public or private, a truth and an ad hominem attack. We auto-supply missing values when the people on TV commercials and news shows speak and have no awareness that we're doing it. That's how we get manipulated, brainwashed and led around by the nose.

Illegitimate questions and pre-supplied universal value judgments proclaimed by our dear leaders are powerful, deceitful tools that are in continuous use for bringing the public to accept desired parameters. These are the ranchers tools used to spark the herd to move into the desired pastures, all the while leaving the individual herdites to solemnly believe they are moving along on their own accord. They believe it is their choice and their idea and that everyone agrees with their own idea when it was never their idea or their choice nor was any specific information, context, or parameters ever given.

We can all look around and see what results from millions of people functioning under this kind of amorphous assumptive sloppy non-critical thinking where what we think we hear is exactly that, what we personally think we hear. We don't hear what is actually being said because nothing is actually being said. The establishment mass media engages in non-informative data distribution utilizing methods specifically designed to feed into and encourage our non-critically thinking mind loops. They take extreme advantage of people every single day because they know what we don't know about the way we think. Advertising and social engineering traps issue forth from big media 24/7 proliferating an endless storm of inane nonspecific ideas. Our politicians make nonstop nonspecific fact-free statements that allow them to evade truths and assert less than truthful things without technically becoming big fat liars, and the people listening and receiving these non-actual messages automatically make them mean whatever their own personal criteria is about.

One example of this is something that made my skin crawl during the second bush campaign. My skin was crawling throughout his entire stolen residency, but this was a classic case of letting people make themselves happy by letting them assume whatever they wanted to assume and then also assume it meant they were on the same page with their beloved candidate or not on the same page as the case may be. The example I'm talking about is the "family values" spew his marketing staff came up with.

Who knows what family values means? It's so obvious that different families have different values that it's almost inane to point it out. But it never appeared to occur to bush licking worshippers that no actual values were being specified. What did happen though was that everyone transferred their assumptions onto the candidate and valued the candidate to be "good". Everyone was running around saying, "I'm very strong on family values", "Me too!", assuming they all meant the same things, when very likely they didn't mean the same exact things at all. But now the candidate is the no-brainer physical embodiment of "good", when of course he's not, he's just a guy and not a very good guy at that. It should be clear to those betrayed assumers of everything about their candidate, by now, in deep retrospect, that what meant "values" to monkey boy was not what meant "values" to Joe and Jane Average Citizen. How could us peasant folk even dream we have a values match when the multimillionaire oil company executive warmonger greed bag number 1 power guy has nothing remotely in common with Joe and Jane Average Citizen? Hello? People have to think.

What it takes to achieve a desired response in another is to formulate a non-question in a way that you know people will agree with. For instance, take the issue of vaccines. The questions asked to stampede the herd into bringing in their children and rolling up the whole family's sleeves is, "Don't you love your children? Don't you want them to be protected from horrible diseases? Then give them every vaccine that comes down the pike or they might get sick. Only bad parents wouldn't do that for their children". The implication is strikingly clear. People who don't vaccinate their children don't love their children or care about their children's health. I.E. they are irresponsible. They are "bad" parents.

Now I ask you, who doesn't want their children to be healthy? Who doesn't love their children? It's a stupid question. What's the point of asking it other than to cattle prod the herd into wanting to feel like they love their children because they vaccinate them. This is a classic, filthy sales manipulation. It should make alarm bells go off in anyone's head because no one comes to talk to us about whether or not we love our children. Regardless of any situation or circumstance, how we feel about our kids is not a subject. This is private business. It's not up for public discourse. To put it bluntly, it's nobody's business how we feel about anything, especially in something so obviously personal. How we feel about anything doesn't have anything to do with somebody standing in our face that we never asked to be there. How we feel is not what they've come to talk about. What they've come to do is get something from us that we don't want to give them because if we did want to give it to them we already would have.

Hooking into people at this ultra personal level which is always an emotional level by the way, is disrespectful and belittling to us. It's a standard ploy though because if they can get you to forget what belongs to you, your feelings and your children, then they can take control over your life away from you. They can assert control over both your feelings and your children. There is no justifiable reason for anyone to do that. For anyone to want to do that is already a five alarm warning.

When this sort of thing is suddenly thrust in our faces the correct response would be to stop the speaker in their tracks and lay them out. "Whether or not I love my children or care about their health is not your place to bring up to me. It is not relevant to you and it's none of your business how I feel about anything regarding my family. I'm not interested in your opinion on my personal life and didn't ask for one. If you have a point to make, make it, otherwise please leave. What is your business here?"

The reason for this is not small. If we allow others to assert opinions over the most important personal things in our lives, things that are none of their business, it's not long before they'll assert their opinions as "better" than our own, and their ideas about what's right or wrong for us as being more "correct" than our own. And the minute we let that happen, the minute we buy into their manipulation or begin to doubt ourselves, they've taken control of what we value most. There are some things that we should never allow anyone to get near. It takes one time, just one time for someone to assert false authority over what belongs to us. If they do it one time, I guarantee you, they'll do it again. They'll keep doing it. The pattern is established and soon you're obligated to jump through their hoops.

That's exactly what's happening in the herd-think pro-vaccine sector. People's kids are being taken away from them on false assertions of endangering the health of a child for refusing to comply with obnoxious vaccination demands made by schools on parents who are no longer allowed to say no, not under any circumstances. Their entire job has been taken away from them along with the only natural rights that exist regarding the parenting of their own children. The hypocrisy is that the parent is still saddled with all of the responsibility but does not get to make the decisions that go with that responsibility. This means extraneous self appointed others decide what's best for us without having to bear the consequences or take any responsibility for when they are wrong or for any harm they do.

This is just wrong. It's insanity. The risk of serious damage to a child who is wrongly seized by false authorities under bullshit assertions of child endangerment so far exceeds the damage free choice to not vaccinate a child it's not even funny. The punishment does NOT fit the crime, it's exponentially worse than the supposed crime and does real and irreversible harm. The damage is real and present, not some theory or unsupported rhetoric. This entire situation is nuts.


I don't understand why anyone thinks that "the state" can touch anybody's children for any reason. The arrogance to assert that they know better than you what's best for your child is the height of fallacious tripe. This goes back to what I was saying before, that our own personal opinions are not an instant and sudden universal fact; that nobody is obligated to do things somebody else's way. When it comes to parenting, no external person has the slightest "right" to get involved or supersede our personal parental authority. On what grounds? There are no grounds. It's such emotional territory that people definitely can't think critically and are easily pulled along and into the Erroneous Zone where they are robbed and diminished by false assertions of higher good and authority that seeks only what's best for the child. Well how would they know? Where's the proof of that?

In this day and age consensus invalidity is perceived as the same thing as being right. It's not. And it never can be. It's still wrong no matter how many people say it's right. It boils down to your irrelevant opinion against my relevant one. There's no contest here. But people let themselves be sucked in emotionally and choose to believe that if authority asserts it is better than parents at parenting, then it must be so.

Show me the data. Where are facts? I also need to know who got the data, who they are affiliated with, who they work for, who paid them? Who compiled the facts? Are they actual facts? Because if they don't have anything to back up their claims, they don't have anything. The end run around that is to get inside people's personal lives and set up a strong hold in their most private areas with the aim of settling our heads like Israel "settles" Palestine. The aim is not to help, the goal is not justice or peace, it is not to protect our children, it is to destroy the right to ownership of our own lives and our children's lives and to take control and ownership of it away for their own personal gain.

The single most profound human attachment is mother and child, parents and children. That's blood attachment, it doesn't get any more meaningful or valuable or real or intense. You don't mess with blood. No mother could be blamed for doing whatever it took to protect her child, and that includes killing someone who threatens the safety or well-being of her children. How do you blame her for that when it's her highest duty and her whole world? You don't. No one with any morals or ethics or brains would dare presume to interfere in the family business of others. The state doesn't seem to have any qualms about that though which says a lot about the state. In spite of the child protection rhetoric, the violent attack on parent's God given rights to raise and protect their own children is not protective of children, it is not protective of rights or dignity or truth, it is protective of the states false assertions of power to treat human beings like less than livestock. It's outrageous.

It is only by trespassing into the most private aspects of our lives and our allowing them to do it, our knee-jerk fear of and childlike trust in authority, our auto-responsive non-critical thinking when they speak, that has literally opened a door to outside interference that heretofore has always been a sacred place that none dared trespass against. High tech brain imaging has determined that when someone we think of as an authority speaks, our minds literally shut off. Areas of the brain literally go dark and stop functioning the moment an authority figure enters the room. If that's not scary I don't know what is because it's definitely not normal human behavior. That is not how free, autonomous, independent, critically thinking people act. The fact that this is so pervasive and rapidly becoming an established "good' way to be does not bode well for the future of this country or humanity in general.

Where we ever got the idea that anyone outside ourselves and those we personally know and interact with and live with, "must" be trusted and obeyed with mindless immediacy is beyond me. It doesn't make sense at the most primary level. It's idiotic. But this process has occurred and now people are systematically handing over authority to official others and giving away direct authority over their own health decisions and children's lives just because officialdom asserts it knows best. As I've already stated, nobody's personal opinions create an external reality. This new worship of 21st century techno-scientific authority is ludicrous and deeply disturbing.

No one else has any natural authority over us or over our children or over our health choices or any other basic, personal, private matter. It's not up to others, it's up to us. That's what our lives are at the most fundamental level. Others can only try to assert authority but they can't claim to have any rights of authority. It's only to the extent we believe their assertions and hand our authority over to them that they can have any authority at all.

The thing that makes it confusing is the stated claim of protecting us. People think being protected is good, and they auto connect being protected with officialdom of all kinds. They fail to notice that no officialdom or authority out there has any legal obligation to protect anyone. It eludes them that this is not a warm and fuzzy country where everyone gets a hug and enough to eat and if you ever have any problems you just pick up the phone and call the state or the CDC or whoever, and they'll rush right over and help you get all better again. We don't have that. We have people with guns and power telling lies and selling us everything from suicide to embracing our new dominated kind of freedom. Officials don't rush in to help you with a fricking thing, do they? No.

But, what about abused children and all that? Who will help them?

This is the precise mechanism I'm talking about. Who will help them is a false question because it presumes there is an answer. There isn't an answer, it's not that simple. It's an escape from facing a truth you cannot do anything about. Some children live horrible lives. The government can't change that. Sorry. There are many things that we, human beings, can do to change it, but neither you or I or the government can make it go away by giving over our parental rights to an impersonal machine.

The question of should we give up some of our rights to help protect abused children is the ultimate false question. It would seem that people of good conscience should rapidly agree to the exchange but it is a trap. If we hand over our rightful authority, our god given freedom, to anyone, we don't have anything left to protect. And those children will still be getting abused, probably worse than ever.

I am so sorry for the parents whose lives are being destroyed by bogus, brutally delivered assertions of impossible authority made by the state claiming jurisdiction over their private lives, their children's lives. Imagine being an informed single mother who has educated herself about vaccines and in good conscience will not allow her child to be vaccinated. The uninformed parents outnumber her and auto-respond with hatred and accusations. The child feels confusion and shame and doesn't know what's right or wrong. Then the state comes to her door and takes her child away at gunpoint and throws her into prison on charges of child endangerment. The situation is an obscenity. The situation should never exist. But it does.

It is power gone insane because people do not think. It couldn't happen if we simply understood what's ours and what no one else has a right to touch and we made damn sure to make clear and protect our private boundaries. They belong to us and only to us. We don't have to do that in any way that somebody else says we do. "Mine" really means mine in the truest sense. No one else gets an opinion about what's mine. Only I do.

When we don't understand that, when we don't support that, we give away what's ours and we suffer terribly for it. Like anything we lose in life, once it's gone it's next to impossible to get back. I can't stress enough the importance of people putting their foot down when slimy false authority tries to commandeer their private lives. The importance of standing by others who have the courage to do it cannot be understated. One person alone will be crushed by the machine, but a whole room of people saying, "Back off or else" is a whole 'nother story.

Do you think it's even possible to tell a mother grizzly bear that she's an unqualified mother and we'll just be taking her cub into protective custody? Do you think she cares what anyone thinks of her mothering skills? She will not recognize the foreign complainant. There will be no discussion. She will tear you in half on the spot because you made the stupid mistake of presuming you had any business interfering with her private life. Do you think any courtroom order for her to cease and desist and turn over her cub would matter in the least to her? They can make all the laws they like under any pretenses they want but the bottom line is they're wasting their time if they try it with grizzly bears. That's why they don't bother. They don't delude themselves that their bad badges and phony authority matters a whit in somebody else's territory. Because grizzly bears don't recognize their authority or care what they think. Laws don't mean squat unless people go along with them. The state can't change reality, it can only change your head by getting into it and laying their sticky scientific imperialist slave eggs in your brain. Pardon me, but I'll pass.

Our 'dumb' animals have much to teach us, if we pay attention. They seem to understand the real rules and know that when any human is in their face uninvited and moving his lips, he wants something that's not his to have. That's common sense. No grizzly bear will ever be impressed by slick talk or court orders or snotty unqualified school employees diagnosing our children's supposed mental illnesses and prescribing mandatory drugging for them. Not in any school where the mothers know who's boss. Not in any situation where parents don't righteously give a shit what anyone else thinks of their parenting because what they think is irrelevant. And that's all there is to it. If you don't respect yourself, trust me, nobody else will.

The basic hook, the sales gimmick that has taken this country's self authority is the ongoing trespass straight into people's private business. Loving your children and wanting them healthy is a given, but people don't think, they respond from fear and insecurity because they don't know the facts. To them, loving your children means vaccinating them, it's irrational and illogical but that is the truth of it. That is the reason people are militant supporters of hundreds of vaccinations getting pumped into every child in the country. It is not at all about health, it is about loving your children, and to not vaccinate them is to be a bad parent who does not love their children. It makes no sense at any level. There is no connection between the two things. There is also nothing in this equation that has anything to do with highly profitable pharmaceutical products being dispensed to children. No information. No facts. No studies with data of any kind. It is a 100% marketing ploy that pulls people into going for it with a contrived, dishonest, self-serving deceitful sales gimmick.

What also doesn't get noticed is the automatic self supplied value between I love my children and vaccines are a good thing. There's no connect there. Simply by inserting the suggestion at the end of no-brainer emotion packed questions, the responder auto inserts the connection and then assumes it to be true.

If you've ever had a conversation with anyone who's been sucked into the belief that injecting extraneous mystery potions into their children is not only the best thing in the whole wide world for them but that it's also perfectly safe across the board for every single child and adult, then you know that it's next to impossible to get people to check their inane assumptions. They don't realize they've made any assumptions. But the sad fact is, most of what they believe is nothing but assumptions they've made without realizing it. This is sloppy thinking. It's truly terrifying to see how wide spread it is. The habit of sloppy thinking is what controllers want most to encourage, and boy do they.

If you really got to the bottom of what people think they know about vaccines, they would tell you they've been told everything they believe by qualified authorities. But I guarantee you, they rarely have. They've never once been in the presence of an autonomous, qualified independent authority that has covered the history of vaccines, specified the difference between a vaccine and being inoculated, explained what is in the vaccines and where those things come from and what their effect on the human body, brain and organs is known to be. They will not have been given data on studies that prove vaccines are effective at preventing disease, because there are no such studies. This is all assumed. They will not have been given data on studies that prove vaccines are not always safe. This information is also assumed. The assumption is that since no external criteria seems to matter regarding vaccines, that they are as safe as water. No one in responsible legal authority ever said that. Whatever information people do get will not be tailored to them specifically, much less to their children. No supposed information in the general 'out there' mentions taking into consideration existing health conditions like asthma or diabetes, or a current state of mild or serious infection with a bug or virus of some kind.

The well-meaning but not helpful people who propagate the widely spread herd stampeded fallacious misinformation are the assuming true believers. Assumers encouraging others to assume and make the same erroneous value judgments and project them on an external object. The object is now "good", and the assumers are in agreement that it is now "good". They've totally lost track of how 'good' is subjective and personal and not the state or condition of some other thing they perceive. Many people would have to really struggle just to get that much untangled and understood.

All of that unhinged, encouraged assuming going on is exactly what the engineers of this hideous fraud on the public want. It's about money, yes it is. Grow up, that's what almost everything is about because money is power and money is freedom and money is getting away with it. Don't doubt for a minute the profit motive part of all this. There are other parts worth considering that are even more frightening than avarice and greed. Those parts are easy enough to find out and educate yourself about. Not knowing them is nobody's fault but your own. And it is exactly because that is true that it frees the authorities from all responsibility when something goes wrong with you or your child after a vaccine is administered. After all, they can't be responsible for what you erroneously assume to be true or for what you do because of that erroneous assumption.

If you don't at the very least avail yourself of the official information that is directly available to the public, which is regulated by law meaning it mandates a level of critical disclosure that you need to know in order to make any kind of an informed decision on this subject; then in their eyes it is your stupid error. It is not their fault, because the information is there and the legal disclosures have been made. If you didn't go get the information, it is not their fault it is your bad parenting. If you choose to get your life and death related data from people who have strong uninformed opinions but do not have an honest to goodness clue, if that's good enough for you, then your information will be whatever they say about it. And they are free to make any claims and say anything at all about it and are not required by law to give you hard facts. It is your choice, that's your option.

The people who benefit from your assumptions won't be bending over backward to clarify your misinformed mind. In fact, as many of us understand now, they want you to make those wrong assumptions because there is a bald faced agenda to push vaccines on every child in this country. Why that is can only be guessed at but the fact is that is what's happening. And children are being disabled and going into comas and dying, and all of that is swept under the rug. Information control and manipulation is, I'm sorry but this is reality, what the authorities do. Who else would do it? Who else would be interested in doing it? A general state of uninformed assumptive closed circular emotion based sloppy thinking is what they count on to further their own agendas. That may be done in the honest belief it's what's best for everyone, or it may not. Regardless, they have no business or right manipulating the public at all, but they do it anyway. The fact that we are conditioned to sloppy thinking, herd think and assuming things instead of getting up off our butts and finding facts and checking statements and beliefs seals our fate and makes their future look very secure. They will never face responsibility for anything they do. It's not their fault if you're stupid, is it?

I'm not saying anyone's stupid or a bad parent, I'm saying that is their legal position. It covers their butt, not yours. That is how they think, not how I see any of this. Their position is utterly disingenuous and deceitful. It's disgusting. They do everything in their power to let people's imaginations run wild. They help to stoke up the ignorance because it serves them. They don't however hide the truth about any of this. It is a few mouse clicks away from any home computer. It says it all right there at the CDC website. It says it in plain English. Vaccines are not guaranteed to work. Vaccines don't protect you from getting sick. Vaccines don't mean you won't catch the very diseases you've been vaccinated with. Children do get sick and have life threatening reactions and die. They'll down play it, but they won't omit the critical data because you can take them to court over that and that would get them put away for life. They know the game far better than we do, believe me. They invented the game. The problem is, most of us don't realize there even is a game.

On this issue alone, far too many people literally don't have the first factual clue. They don't know anything about alleged vaccine effectiveness or safety. They don't have a clue what's in these concoctions. They will fight you to the ground saying the solutions are safe and clean and life saving, and this will not be because they know it to be true, but because they self-inserted the acceptable and desirable assumed criteria of their choice, made the auto-connection to the exterior thing, and melded them. They themselves deemed and judged this external solution to be "good". It is not good. It just is what it is, that's all.

People miss the whole reality of "good" being a state of personal perception. The "good" that matters is what's good for them, personally. Danger is embodied in the totally erroneous belief that something out there is "good" or "bad" because you perceive it to be one or the other. It isn't. And it can't be. It can only either be good or bad for you, based on your actual reality and that is something you have to know for yourself. Nobody else could have a clue about your personal reality. How could they?

So, if I've done my work here and have achieved any modicum of success, then how you answer the following question might be a tad different than the first time I asked it:

"Which is better, chocolate or vanilla?"

Fear and Panic. Not.

Are you at the end of your mother loving rope after plugging in to the endless streams of hysterical bad news and proclamations that everything sucks and prognostications that it's all hopeless and pontifications about how martial law is coming any minute and prophecies predicting that this is the end of the world?

Well stop it. At the very least put it all on pause long enough to consider the following points.

If you sit and look at pornography all day it does not mean that sexual intercourse is imminent. Does it? No, it doesn't.

By the same token, if you sit and listen to horrible bad news all day it does not mean that catastrophe is imminent.

You can tell when sex is imminent when there's somebody else with you who's naked and in the bedroom saying, "Let's have sex".

You can tell when catastrophe is imminent when you can personally see a tidal wave overhead. If you can't see it, it isn't there in any real terms that matter in your immediate life in the here and now. Sure, there's a tidal wave out there somewhere, that cannot be denied. But it's not here now. That means it's not here now. If it's not here now and you're panicking that would be like putting up your Christmas tree in the middle of July and waiting for Santa. In other words, it would be stupid because Santa's not coming for another six months no matter what you do with your Christmas tree. Santa, like any catastrophe, does not run on your schedule but in spite of it.

Now you may say that you know there are great big tidal waves out there and you're just sure one's going to come slosh you to Kingdom Come any minute. Sure, you can worry and pace and expect a tidal wave any minute, but that will neither hasten its arrival nor prevent or assure its coming. Your level of worry and anxiety has no effect on tidal waves or what they're doing or not doing. Sorry, you're just not that powerful and tidal waves don't care what you think or feel. If you are reasonably certain that a tidal wave is coming your way in the near future and believe that if it did you would not survive it, move out of its path. If you aren't there when it comes it can't get you, so don't be there if you're that sure it's on its way.

The salient point to keep stapled to our foreheads if necessary is that if it's not happening to you it's not happening to you, you are fine. If it's happening to someone else it is still not happening to you, you are still fine, they are the ones who are not okay. It actually happened to them while in fact nothing has happened to you. Your fear is not the same as their actual misfortune.

If you take the time and the necessary intelligent, reasonable steps to ensure your survival and your health, and if you take sensible security precautions such as not walking down dark alleys at night alone holding hundreds of dollars in your bare hands, you're doing as much as can be done to be safe and sound. There is no such thing as guaranteed safety and security. Anything can happen at any time to anyone and you can't do anything about that. If you pay attention in life you will notice something bad coming your way and that will enable you to get out of the way and avoid it. If you pay attention in life you will also be able to tell the difference between a real danger signal and a fake one that is the result of someone else's panic and ignorance getting unleashed and infecting everyone else who does not pay attention and has no facts and has taken no steps to self educate. If you do not pay attention then you won't be able to tell the difference between a real danger signal and your own unreasonable, unbridled bat shit nuts panic and fear disabling you and turning you into a jittering walking turnip who will probably do yourself more harm than any actual externally generated harm would do you. This is exactly like panicked goats running over a cliff. They are so afraid they're going to get hurt that they kill themselves. There's a bad plan. Panic is your worst enemy because it makes you stupid, and if you're stupid you can't take the simple steps that will keep you safe and sound, which can be as simple as stepping aside a few feet or taking cover for a couple of minutes. Running around with your hands in the air going, "Aahhhhh!" will not keep you safe and sound and don't laugh, that's what people do when they panic. That and much more and it often includes making the dumbest decisions that end up getting people hurt.

Not having a cow when you hear bad news is to know the difference between sitting comfortably in your living room reading about scary things and actually being in the midst of something terrible happening to you. These are not the same things. In one, you are perfectly fine. In the other you're not. If you can't tell the difference between when you're perfectly fine and when you're not you need to work on that until you get the hang of it.

Whenever you feel afraid, get your coordinates. What is the danger? Where is it? Can you see it? If you can see it, run away. If you cannot see it, it isn't there. Even if you're scared that it's there somewhere, if there's no sign of it, it's still not there. Your fear does not equate to there being imminent danger.

If you take these few little handy hints to heart and memorize them, you will be able to significantly cut down on your Prozac expenditures as well as other drugs that make your brain turn to mud pie but can't and don't solve anything or take away anything that's eating away at you in your real life. Being in the here and now will do you far more good than any form of knee-jerk mindless panic response will do you. Instead of worrying about things you don't have full and verified facts about and can't change anyway at the moment, invest your mental energy in learning what you need to know to be prepared if and when you should see an actual tidal wave overhead, and then get on with your life. Because there's no reason not to do that, and no good reason to do anything else.
