I live quite close to this person, a hundred km or so. What amazes me beyond the effrontery of the judge's ruling is that it has almost no local reporting. There is a pretty efficient blackout within the nearby information systems, online and newspapers alike.
Which suggests to me that behind the scenes there is a strong agreement to affirm this attitude in the face of (what would be) popular opinion if people knew about it. How, how can this be? It flies straight in the face of everything human or even practical.
Even the father has not, to my knowledge, tried to maintain that the girl "cannot" do the sex change; the most available seems to be to ask that the decision to move ahead be delayed until the person who wants to trans has reached legal majority.
So even the idea that waiting four years to make your own decision legally, is to be prevented, silenced, deplatformed.
I've been saying for forty years that I'm baffled when the electorate in a democracy elects someone who works completely against their own interests; this matter takes that beyond baffling out into psychosis. Yet it passes for "society" .... I don't understand

Thank you, Jason. I actually saw this video yesterday, and I'm fairly familiar with Kean Bexte's basic approach. Most of the time I can't stand to watch till the end, it's always so aggressively partisan that no real value judgement is possible. Gotta say, it's hard to believe the execution of this Liberal Government idea should be so blatantly vicious and ugly. Shape of things to come, I fear.

That was quite valuable, thank you. Like many other people, I've encountered Jordan Peterson facing his enemies, and heard him talk about the general energies of his study. This was a new aspect: the man himself in the pursuit of his own clarity, through the support and the needs of his counseling client. I'm not likely to buy the book, but I appreciate this demonstration of the attitude he takes when he's not having to arm-wrestle with someone who wants to vilify him.
All that resistance he experiences! I think it says far more about the limitations of his decriers than it does about him.

Ah, yes, sorry. I forgot about all the other links in your post. I was referring to the article by Sylvain LaForest, which I now see was from Nov. 2019. So much has happened since!
Now I feel the shadows are larger and darker, and Sylvain's suggestion of revelations that were to come now seem poignant.
My comment, "better get going; not lots left to burn" was more about the events since, the fraud, the betrayals, the seeming fumbling of the potential recovery team (read Patrick Byrne's tale of his experiences with Rudy Giuliani's bunch) ... it adds up to a slowly flattening tire.
I'm having a hard time imagining how one event (the CPAC address) could overcome the inertia of the whole storyline since. It's a great thought though.
Experts on Covid-19 "The question on everone's mind" and "We will not be silenced" [OracleFilms] by zyxzevn in CorruptScience

This seems like a very cogent analysis. As on a few other occasions, I worry a little about any explanation that comes this close to revelation. "If you're really gonna do it, don't talk to anyone about it. Just do it."
Also seems to have been written before Covid struck, though I might be mistaken about that. Couldn't find a date.
Anyway, if the Phoenix is going to rise from the ashes, it had better get going; there's not a lot left to burn.

Can freedom be found in seasteading? by Tomoko in news
As short a time ago as the 1950's it might have worked, especially if you kept a low profile and shut up about it.
Now, nothing is private, nothing is unclaimed, there is no frontier. And no structure that would create a frontier.
I grew up with this poem: I wish I thought its essence was still possible. Alas, I don't anymore. Time for an extinction event, and starting again I think. And I'm not talking about some kind of "Mad Max" thing: I mean, fifty people left alive on the entire planet and start again, kind of thing.
Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936). Verse: 1885–1918. 1922.
“THERE’S no sense in going further—it’s the edge of cultivation,”
So they said, and I believed it—broke my land and sowed my crop—
Built my barns and strung my fences in the little border station
Tucked away below the foothills where the trails run out and stop.
Till a voice, as bad as Conscience, rang interminable changes
On one everlasting Whisper day and night repeated—so:
“Something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the Ranges—
“Something lost behind the Ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!”
So I went, worn out of patience; never told my nearest neighbours—
Stole away with pack and ponies—left ’em drinking in the town;
And the faith that moveth mountains didn’t seem to help my labours
As I faced the sheer main-ranges, whipping up and leading down.
March by march I puzzled through ’em, turning flanks and dodging shoulders,
Hurried on in hope of water, headed back for lack of grass;
Till I camped above the tree-line—drifted snow and naked boulders—
Felt free air astir to windward—knew I’d stumbled on the Pass.
’Thought to name it for the finder: but that night the Norther found me—
Froze and killed the plains-bred ponies; so I called the camp Despair
(It’s the Railway Gap to-day, though). Then my Whisper waked to hound me:—
“Something lost behind the Ranges. Over yonder! Go you there!”
Then I knew, the while I doubted—knew His Hand was certain o’er me.
Still—it might be self-delusion—scores of better men had died—
I could reach the township living, but … He knows what terror tore me …
But I didn’t … but I didn’t. I went down the other side,
Till the snow ran out in flowers, and the flowers turned to aloes,
And the aloes sprung to thickets and a brimming stream ran by;
But the thickets dwined to thorn-scrub, and the water drained to shallows,
And I dropped again on desert—blasted earth, and blasting sky….
I remember lighting fires; I remember sitting by ’em;
I remember seeing faces, hearing voices, through the smoke;
I remember they were fancy—for I threw a stone to try ’em.
“Something lost behind the Ranges” was the only word they spoke.
I remember going crazy. I remember that I knew it
When I heard myself hallooing to the funny folk I saw.
’Very full of dreams that desert, but my two legs took me through it …
And I used to watch ’em moving with the toes all black and raw.
But at last the country altered—White Man’s country past disputing—
Rolling grass and open timber, with a hint of hills behind—
There I found me food and water, and I lay a week recruiting.
Got my strength and lost my nightmares. Then I entered on my find.
’Thence I ran my first rough survey—chose my trees and blazed and ringed ’em—
Week by week I pried and sampled—week by week my findings grew.
Saul he went to look for donkeys, and by God he found a kingdom!
But by God, who sent His Whisper, I had struck the worth of two!
Up along the hostile mountains, where the hair-poised snowslide shivers—
Down and through the big fat marshes that the virgin ore-bed stains,
Till I heard the mile-wide mutterings of unimagined rivers,
And beyond the nameless timber saw illimitable plains!
’Plotted sites of future cities, traced the easy grades between ’em;
Watched unharnessed rapids wasting fifty thousand head an hour;
Counted leagues of water-frontage through the axe-ripe woods that screen ’em—
Saw the plant to feed a people—up and waiting for the power!
Well I know who’ll take the credit—all the clever chaps that followed—
Came, a dozen men together—never knew my desert-fears;
Tracked me by the camps I’d quitted, used the water-holes I’d hollowed.
They’ll go back and do the talking. They’ll be called the Pioneers!
They will find my sites of townships—not the cities that I set there.
They will rediscover rivers—not my rivers heard at night.
By my own old marks and bearings they will show me how to get there,
By the lonely cairns I builded they will guide my feet aright.
Have I named one single river? Have I claimed one single acre?
Have I kept one single nugget—(barring samples)? No, not I!
Because my price was paid me ten times over by my Maker.
But you wouldn’t understand it. You go up and occupy.
Ores you’ll find there; wood and cattle; water-transit sure and steady
(That should keep the railway rates down), coal and iron at your doors.
God took care to hide that country till He judged His people ready,
Then He chose me for His Whisper, and I’ve found it, and it’s yours!
Yes, your “Never-never country”—yes, your “edge of cultivation”
And “no sense in going further”—till I crossed the range to see.
God forgive me! No, I didn’t. It’s God’s present to our nation.
Anybody might have found it but—His Whisper came to Me!

One of the few individual solutions I can think of would be enjoying the decline, and participating in enjoyable pursuits rather than focusing on politics. Unfortunately, mainstream conservatives doing that is one of the main reasons we're here today.
One of the few individual solutions I can think of would be enjoying the decline, and participating in enjoyable pursuits rather than focusing on politics. Unfortunately, mainstream conservatives doing that is one of the main reasons we're here today.
That is so; I am puzzled as to solutions. I've lost friends and family because of mentioning the slightest hint of the things I see as self-evident. Have had to sit back and wait to see if developments prove me right. Except that will be far too late to avoid the situation planned for us. Far from showing interest, people recoil as if I'd bitten them. The strength of propaganda I suppose; yet I sit and wonder: if they are victims, what am I doing that is different from them?
Well one thing I suppose is I'm always interested in reasonable discussion, even if I don't buy the opposing argument. Not always possible. I've been angrily dismissed, even got hit once. Never raised my voice, never tried to belittle the other person...it is truly baffling. Conversations that would have been easy, even enjoyable, five years ago are now impossible. "Dismissed"! Slam.
Truly, we have competent adversaries. This very division has been their method at work, IMO.
You may have noticed this post, I found it shortly after seeing and answering yours. I believe there are ideas here that need to be taken on board.
As another facet of the topic, I have heard some, Dan Rubin in particular, suggest that 'wokeness' has become a religion, rather than a political approach; and as such is defended on faith and cult loyalty rather than any matter of fact. Which makes such people unapproachable, back to what I said before: you can't reason with someone who will not hear you. George Carlin, speaking of the Muslim encroachment (years ago, before the current diaspora) said, "They will win, you know. There is no defense against fanaticism, and fanaticism is entirely relentless."
It's such a broad perspective of damage.
Very true. You will have seen the meme running around that describes the wheel of history: "Strong men make good times: Good times make weak men: Weak men make bad times: Bad times make strong men."
It may be a matter of waiting for the wheel; I also have envisioned the Yin-Yang wheel in this respect. But I have pangs of sorrow for the generations it may take for that wheel to turn, and sorrow for the implacable narcissism that would be willing to sacrifice billions of people to a miserable fate, for the sake of their own comfort and salacious delight.
I've recently encountered a very spiritually minded lady who pointed out to me (again) that reaching out into consciousness, coming to an encounter with one's inner self, there is the knowledge that everything is perfect; nothing is ever out of place, no matter what it looks like; and it isn't our business to be occupied with the spiritual development of anyone but ourselves.
That's a pretty quiet spot in all this; I kind of envy her her nonchalance. I suspect she would be of the same mind right to the last breath of starvation. I find that worthy of respect, it's not my path but I get it.

Every now and then I hear public commentators mention that left thinking includes hive-mind organization, while right thinking possesses personal opinions rather than group goals. To put it another way, liberals are great at organizing, conservatives are pretty bad at it. Really we're talking about one's human nature. Some people are like that; some are not. Much grows from that truth.
@Aureus has made good suggestions and a well-thought-out post. I agree with almost everything here; but I don't see the key that will allow conservatives to be coherent; it is their nature to be individual rather than committed to a common vision.
Donald Trump could have been the one to weld conservatives into a single vision- but either he doesn't possess whatever it takes, or he has been so poisoned and subverted that his leadership has been rudderless. There's a study out there somewhere that found that over the past twenty years, political speeches have employed simpler and simpler language, and an increase in sentiments over facts.
I saw a clip this morning of Vladimir Putin talking about how American elections are all fine, but a couple of days afterward the elected person is visited by some men in black suits who tell him how it works. "Or else", if you're lucky. Not if you're not.
I have thought about the level of blackmail and terrorism that goes into those visits. If you are an official, and every time you don't do what you are told (like "stand down the police") one of your children or an uncle disappears...well. And people who inhabit Saidit will have heard about the international trafficking, rape and murder of thousands of children every year. Is it all bullshit? I don't know, I only have the internet; and though I don't watch TV, I bet I'd never hear of it there.
So we're at war against a merciless, honourless psychopathic machine that spurns "your democracy" as nothing more than a speed bump, if that. No progress can be made until the real enemy is exposed and addressed; more and more, I'm thinking that is a worldwide crime syndicate (a loose one but with concrete goals) funded and supported by the wealthiest people on earth...who somehow think they will be safe once the rest of us are subdued. Which is debatable.
We are at war, but not with each other. I see that as the central problem, beyond what @Aureus has said. Who is that, and where are they? That's what we need to know, before we begin assembling the response @Aureus recommends.
We have a small army of private journalists who are trying to tell us things. They endanger themselves regularly by digging into things that "aren't anyone's bussiness". The recent purges on Youtube and Twitter should tell you that. But as long as the Machine owns the government, the police and the courts, "proof" is just going to be brushed aside.
It's impossible to reason with someone who won't listen and doesn't care what you think. Who has the power to make you invisible in the larger world. So what now? It is already a war, just nobody wants to call it. And it's not with who you think.

Thoughts on police? by [deleted] in debatealtright
[–]kazenmusic 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun - 3 years ago (0 children)
I think we are all, worldwide, going to have to follow the wheel of history on its downward circle. To reform the police now would require a complete overhaul of society's moral fabric; which is torn and partly unraveled by design.
This gives me no pleasure, but I've seen it coming for years as society's softness and entitlement and unwillingness to seek real truth has allowed the rot to creep in. We're in the "weak men make bad times" part of the circle, and there's no way out but through. Not that it's any consolation, but I think we've hardly seen anything yet of how bad it could get.
I realize my comment is not directly about police; I say this as I do to show they are willing tools in the hands of people whose contempt for 'the rest of us' is bottomless. So the police can be expected to release their psychological poison as they have been programmed to do.
It's a mark of our naivety as a Western society, with our kind and forgiving social contract, that we would allow things to get this far. In a way I take some pride in that- it means we were able to have empathy and understanding of others for long enough to establish a high level of social trust, at least at one point in history. Proves it can be done; we're going to have to start all over.

Something happened to the formatting there, sorry. Hope you can read it.
What to touch upon?
I've spent the rest of my life wondering what might have happened if I had not 'failed the exam'. It always seemed like a double-edged sword; being successful would have meant abandoning morality and civility for my fellow man. Not being successful left me as I have been; a slave rather than a controller, but with a controller's ambition.
The current situation where we've all been scared into house arrest by what appears likely to be one of the biggest criminal conspiracies of all time, is a metaphor for the price of failure. Nonetheless, I believe success would have been even more damaging ultimately to my soul, though it seemed like an exciting prospect and it appealed to my ego at the time.
Nowadays we use words like 'psyop' to describe that kind of directive psychology; but there was an occult quality to it as well that I didn't understand, and still don't. Was I involved in "neuro-linguistic programming"? Is there a psychic overlordship that operates in and out of this time structure? What part does decision play in creating one's reality? What are other dimensions like, and how do they operate in resonance with this one? Stuff like that.
In the end, and I'm fairly close to the end now, I can't figure out whether I missed an adventure or dodged a bullet.

A Hard Rain’s A‐Gonna Fall
Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son
And where have you been, my darling young one
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son
And what did you see, my darling young one
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin'
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder that roared out a warnin'
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin'
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin'
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
Oh, what did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded with hatred
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
And what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
And what'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin'
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
And the executioner's face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin'
But I'll know my song well before I start singin'

When I was about 20 (more than 50 years ago) I seemed to be offered some kind of enlightenment. It would be based in part on contempt for my fellow man and disregard for his fate, but the powers that would be granted would be superior talent and capability, the ability to bend others to my will and control things like business outcomes, possibly the ability to bend time to some extent, possibly the opportunity to occupy several different realities, a program of ongoing training, and a lot I didn't perceive properly or can't remember.
There was a certain amount of resonance with the ideas around angels and devils, and some kind of relationship with insects and birds; as though those equations were similar to political parties vying for power, let's say.
I failed to be accepted. There was something I couldn't understand, something I should relinquish that I could not freely part with. I think I wouldn't have agreed anyway, but at the time I don't believe I thought I had access to whatever that was anyway. The whole process took a number of months as I measure time, and ended with an emotional collapse (a 'nervous breakdown') from which I've never fully recovered, though I went on to a full and satisfying life.
I've always said to myself that I'll have some questions for Saint Peter when I meet him at the gate; but in the meantime I might as well ask you, since you appear to have about an equal measure of arrogance. Have you some ideas about all this that you could explain to me?

Authoritarian rule appears to have become the new world religion overnight. I guess the motto is, "It doesn't matter what happens to you. But I must end up on this side of the fence." The depopulation program (virus, as a first shot in the war on people) is causing a lot of scrambling for survival, and the real authoritarians are safely distant.
People like George Soros, Bill Gates, the Clintons, Merkel, Macron, Bezos, Zuckerberg, et al. are frontmen; program supervisors. And there are thousands of people, from ordinary workers seeking security in a job, to world state Governors, Justin Trudeau, and many world leaders, lining up to help them step on their fellow humans, for whom they have only contempt. That's you and me, bub.
The society depicted in The Hunger Games is just around the corner...with a less likely ending, if you can imagine that. Disarmament, disenfranchisement, and economic ruin of citizenry are necessary steps, but the imbalance of technology is already so great that it's hard to imagine a free world as an outcome of this contest. The forest beyond the fence in the movie, where the heroine honed her hunting skills, will be unavailable because nowhere will escape full surveillance. (That was likely a continuity glitch in the movie, anyway.)
A new world order is appearing, that will have to live out its age and collapse like all previous empires, from within. But brace yourself. It could take quite a while, even as Earth measures these things.
It's all impressions from the Internet; so judge accordingly. My sources are Amazing Polly, Corbett Report, The Last American Vagabond, YouAreFreeTV, and a few others. I'm not free to express any of these ideas among friends or family; I've lost a few friends. It's been suggested that I have dementia (I'm rather old) or schizophrenia. People don't seem to have the mental framework to take in this view. Or maybe they're right! (grin)
And, I dearly hope I'm wrong! My best to you all, and thanks, OP.

Billionaire Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos pledges US$10 billion to combat climate change by supertms38 in WorldNews
"Climate change" is a euphemism for "limit the actions and wealth potential of anyone under the billionaire threshold"...as George Carlin said, "What they want is more for them and less for anybody else"...I guess Jeff realizes he's going to have to pay something to buy that...I wonder what 10 billion dollars US represents in terms of his yearly earnings? 3%? 5%? Cheap at twice the price.
I read an interesting statement yesterday..."It's 2589 B.C.E. You, who are immortal, decide you will save the equivalent of $10,000 every day, and you begin to do so.
Fast forward to 2020: you've been saving $10,000 every day for all these years: and you have amassed about 1/5 of what today's top 5 billionaires have for wealth."

As philosophy, these ideas work very well and are admirable. I'm happy to agree to that point.
In terms of modern experience I think to ignore, or not pay attention, to an unfortunately growing number of topics only leaves psychopath malefactors free to act without scrutiny- or to put it another way, the bastards can get away with anything at all if we don't keep an eye on them.
I feel responsibility to try to keep informed about some things; it would be so unfair if no one even knew what those schemers are up to.
To recap: it would be great to be like that, if I could live with myself.

There is only one being in the universe, and we are tiny components of it.
It has no volition: meaning it's not good, or bad. Things happen by chance and by choice, beautiful and ugly, and there is no naming or controlling any of it outside of our own choices. Even those choices are restricted by our limited understanding; but that doesn't mean we're not a part of it, as much as any rock or tree or ocean. All those things, including us, have being.
One of the great lines of my life came from "Hotel California" by the Eagles; "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."
We choose the world we live in every day by waking up.
Hemp Batteries powering the way for a bright, relaxed, and high new world; yeah!... No really, hemp batteries?! by HeyImSancho in SundogsPlace
Hey you, I like your attitude. Back in the 1960's a girl told me a fable about how a whole society of people discovered if they pumped really hard they could get themselves off the ground.
They went on pumping until they were out of sight in the sky, leaving behind a few people on the ground who couldn't be bothered with that shit.
Those ground people went on to reinvent the world, without the pumpers. Makes sense to me, as a parable at least.

I remember reading something years ago about the nature of one's experience in approaching truth; at first you might recoil from an electric shock, another time you will forget what you came for, another time you will rail and kick the boards of your self-imposed playpen; someday, when you've tried everything else, you'll just take it in, without judging.
And once a wise man said to me, "At some point you have to realize that you're going to be watching lambs led to slaughter, and know there's nothing to be done about it."

There's an aspect of Saidit (and similar sites) that is not discussed much; for me, it boils down to "Be a good audience", by which I mean that posters with quality things to say deserve a good response. Whether you agree or not, part of the deal here is to have something to say (when it seems right to you) - dialogue is the point.
Are We on the Verge of Another Civil War? by dcjogger in news
I'd suggest the 'war' is already underway and has been for some time. What is missing is the energy to abandon one's security of home, food and clothing and actually go to war; so we have weekend warriors who attend each others' events with the idea of causing trouble.
