Global Warming is a Pile
#1
Sun comes up and the Earth warms. Sun goes down and the Earth cools. A volcano erupts and puts more global warming crap into the air that humans could create in several lifetimes, Greta Thunberg blames you. I laugh because I don’t care.

I care... but more because of the disinformation and the machinery that produces it. The Climate issue is easily understood for what it is, but it is only one aspect of the broader disinformation package that is spewed out.

I know Bill, like you we do care. However, eventually one has to realize that a sizable portion of the citizenry are ruled by emotions, and until they intellectually grow up, they aren't going to change. All we can do is simply present the sensible alternative, and be there for them whenever they finally outgrow their intellectual immaturity.

Its all one can do short of becoming dictatorial, which is the opposite of our principles.

I still agree - but the emotionalim is just a symptom, not the cause. They believe what the school systems inculcated in their stunted minds, and is reinforced by peers and complicit media. For us, it seems like a losing battle. because they have been purposefully educated to not use their minds as best they should. (Read how Dewey's brags about how he wants to make them all good little followers.

John Dewey in "Democracy and Education" 1916 Wrote:"For purposes of simplification, we've spoken as if the education of the immature which fills them with the spirit of the social group to which they belong. We're sort of catching up with the child, with the aptitudes and resources of the adult group.

(The pupil learns symbols without the key to their meanings. He acquires a technical body of information, without an ability to trace its connections with the objects and operations with which he's familiar. Often he just learns a peculiar vocabulary.)

In static society [In you're not embracing Progressivism, then you're a static, backward, and in fact regressive society.] In static societies, in societies that make the maintenance of established customs their measure of value, the conception applies in the main, but not in progressive communities. They endeavor to shape the experiences of the young, so instead of reproducing current habits, better habits will be formed, and thus the future adult society be an improvement on their own.

Men have long had some intimation of the extent to which education can be consciously used to eliminate obvious social evils, to starting the young on paths which shall not produce these ills, and some extent education may be made an instrument of realizing the better hopes of men. But we were far from realizing the potential efficacy of education as a constructive agency for improving society, for realizing it represents not only an element of children and youth, but also the future society, of which they will be the constituents."

The purpose of education is to indoctrinate kids.

Seems simple to me, I own guns with ammo. Dirt people only own their thoughts of dirt. My bullets win if push comes to shove.

Interesting. Let's think this through. If you have a gun with 99 bullets, and there are one hundred dirt people who want to take it away, then the first one that gets shot ought to cause all the others to run away. Logically, if they kep coming and you use up all the bullets, then the ones who are left might be able to get to your gun and take it away. Realistically, what happens is that the remaining hypocrites will appeal to police with guns to outnumber your one gun and still take it away. We always walk a tightrope trying to do what is right while supporting our causes. The problem is the system has been rigged for far too long for instant fixes. We need to dig down and attack the underlying things that unbalance what is right. Let's get rid of gun-free zones first.
