I Am Not A Gadget (v1.0)

I am reading Jaron Lanier's book entitled nearly the same as this post. I don't understand everything he says, but the general drift is that we should stop believing in fantasy worlds invented by programmers who believe their own bullshit. I wonder what he thinks of Occupy Wall Street?

I haven't finished the book, yet, but I'm sensing Jaron doesn't like Google very much. He likes the people who invented Google (I will get to the psychopathy of corporations, and how they turn ordinary people into zombies, someday) but not Google itself, much less what Google represents to him.

If nothing else, Jaron seems to be crying out against the hive mind – group think. We are unique individuals. We should do nothing to demean our humanity (like tie our hair in knots.) People are smarter than algorithms. (Al Gore rhythms?) There is a right-wing bent to his arguments.

I still have hundreds of pages to read but I see some kind of idea emerging from Jaron's brain. I don't quite follow his thoughts, so I wonder how he feels about usury? He has an interesting philosophy that does not include eating goats or cephalopods but would devour chickens. Has he pondered money?

I suspect it is beginning to dawn upon him that he's just another dumb ass sitting on a rock spinning through space on its way to a cataclysmic encounter with the Andromeda galaxy. Nothing to see here, move along. The laws of nature created man. God knows I wish it were different.

Open Letter to Ron Paul

First, there is no free market. This fact nullifies nearly everything you say, doesn't it?

Nearly every position you endorse depends upon a free market, but no such market exists.

Free markets do not exist because the people who direct our world do not want free markets. Our rulers need to control every aspect of everything. Free markets are out of their control. No free markets.

Second, voting doesn't matter. Everything about the process is rigged to favor certain people. Outsiders be damned. Vote counting is mostly done by machines controlled by private parties. That's just stupid.

Most importantly, Sovereign people have had their right to create money usurped.

I know you follow me so far. Here's where I lose you.

Money is not wealth, but gold is.

Money is not a commodity, but gold is.

Money is a unit of measurement per Article 1 Section 8 of the US Constitution. Google it.

There are two Golden Rules, Dr. Paul – which do you believe in?

  1. He Who Has the Money Makes the Rules.

  2. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Would you have your friends loan “money” at interest when you might choose #2 and outlaw usury?

Money is a measurement. You can no more charge interest on dollars than charge interest on inches.

Dr. Paul, this is the primary issue separating us. You were once Libertarian and might understand how a public utility such as (real, fair, true) money cannot endure interest. Who may charge interest on a public utility? Not even the government itself has such a right. Interest on money is baneful.

There is a sensible road to a real economy:

Ron Paul is a Lesser Evil

I don't vote. I gave up voting after my guy dropped out of the Presidential primary in 2008. It wasn't like I was enthused with his prospects, anyway. My guys never win unless I make a mistake like I did in 1996. I voted for Ralph Nader twice, just to let you know whereabouts I think.

The first time I voted, I voted against Ronald Reagan even though I knew he had already won.

The problem today is, you have no idea if your vote is counted. How the votes are counted is the most important thing, as old Joe Stalin pointed out. Our votes today are counted by proprietary algorithms that are not subject to public scrutiny. The machines that count our votes have been proven unreliable time and again.

Hacking the electronic vote is painfully simple to do. Proving the vote honest may be impossible. Asking people to count their local votes and report back is too difficult for some reason.

A flawed voting system is reason enough to pass, but look at the imbeciles we're expected to endorse. I guess you could write someone in, but that's probably enough to render your vote “unreadable.” We are pretty much stuck with who is on the ballet. Pick which Bonesman will be President.

So, I don't vote. Why waste my time? Why should I vote to change the face of my oppressor? It's the system that needs changing, not the people that run it.

Look at Obama, Mr. Change has become President Wall Street. Just another apologist for the status quo. The status quo dictates people like me are born to lose. You have to pay to play in this world.

If you have cash (I don't) you can game the legal system.

If you have cash (I don't) you can buy a judge or a politician.

If you have cash (I don't) you can write your own rules.

If you have cash (I don't) you can afford a lot of mistakes.

People with money like to vote because they don't mind telling other people what to do. Some people need telling, it's true. Most people resent being bossed around, though. Some people wish they had money just so they could start bossing people around. Money is funny like that.

By now, you may be asking, “What of Ron Paul?”

Absolutely, if you must “vote” then I highly endorse the good doctor's prescription for chaos. Bringing the troops home means nothing to some people compared to a new currency on a modified gold standard. Dr. Paul swallowed the “Austrian School” of economics which is just more of the same old usury that is bankrupting the world. He won't fix the economy, but he'll be very apologetic for the way your family suffers.

If voting worked, it would be illegal – kinda like medical marijuana.

Ending Government Oppression

"Who are the oppressors? The few: the king, the capitalist and a handful of other overseers and superintendents. Who are the oppressed? The many: the nations of the earth; the valuable personages; the workers; they that make the bread that the soft-handed and idle eat.

Why is it right that there is not a fairer division of the spoil all around? Because laws and constitutions have ordered otherwise. Then it follows that laws and constitutions should change around and say there shall be a more nearly equal division." Mark Twain

Phase 1 “Discovery”

Life is unfair. Some people have more money and some people live longer. Steve Jobs gets 56 years while Henry Kissinger lives on and on and on. There is a random distribution of natural unfairness in all things. Why wasn't I born rich instead of handsome? Some people seem to have it all.

We must tolerate what we can't control, but most unfairness is the creation of people, not the consequence of bad luck. Unfortunately, a few people have seized control via corruption of nearly every large organization in the world, including governments and corporations.

They can afford to do this because they control all of the money in the world, by law. The rich pay to have laws changed while the rest of us watch our votes ignored.

You were born a slave to a system that was created by other people long ago. Any profit you take from the system will be minimized. Your money is taxed away or inflated into worthlessness.

Paying taxes is not as natural as death. Some governments pay stipends to their citizens.

Once you understand that you were tricked into thinking inside a box designed by the world's most notorious criminals, you will begin to ask for the facts behind your enslavement:

Who has done this to us? (Bankers, duh.)

What have they really done? (Bought everyone.)

When did it start to go wrong? (1913. 1694. 1865. 1963. 2001. 2008. all of the above.)

Where are such things happening? (Worldwide, Inc.)

Why have they changed everything for the worse? (Jig is up.)

How can our society overcome the criminals that have stolen our lives? (Reconstitute!)

This unfair system cannot continue demanding more money than exists. A collapse will happen before our interest payments exceed our income. We on on the brink of just such a scenario.

War is everywhere and yet still on the horizon. The path we are on leads only toward destruction.

Phase 2 “Resolution”

Money is your credit. Money is a way to measure the worth of things. Money should be discussed by a modern constitutional congress. Money creation should not be a monopoly.

Meanwhile, interest should be outlawed by constitutional amendment in order to immediately withdraw money power from the psychopathic elitists and return it to the people, themselves.
