After several weeks of trying to raise awareness of the disaster it would be to elect Donald Trump as the president of the USA, I have changed my mind.
I will now support Trump and cheer on him from abroad – hoping he will hit a Home Run next week.
I will support him precisely because it will be a disaster. It will set the effort to curtail global warming back decades when he pulls the US support for the Paris Agreement. Trump is notoriously anti-science and pro-conspiracies and conveniently believes climate change to be a hoax. I believe global warming is the single most important issue facing the Earth for the next century. And we cannot fail in our efforts to not fuck up our planet.
But, it’s better to fail hard and fast than to fail in ten years when the crisis is even tougher. And I don’t believe we can afford not to fail now. We must let Trump win so that he can fail in public so that the US can learn fast – and then join in with other nations that want to pull our weight together. The alternative is worse – having 150 million disaffected Americans sulking and bitching for the next 4 years.
Shielding the US from Muslims, Mexicans, Syrian refugees (which is largely due to the US intervention in the Middle East), free trade and everything Mr. Trump doesn’t like is certainly not the way forward. But no amount of rhetoric, persuasion or facts will convince Trump supporters that we need to pull together. The egoism runs too deep. He needs to wreck havoc in order for people to understand that this right wing lunacy is a dead end.
I believe in failing. And learning. It’s core to my coaching of athletes, executives and artists. US needs to learn. Since the world has never been socially better off than now, we should afford 4 years of crazy shit to accommodate for better decades to come.
It apparently wasn’t enough for Bush to fail, he’s simply been written off later as “part of the establishment”. We need another fast and solid failure.
Vote for Trump. Make America Fail Again.
77 thoughts on “Trump for President!”
I predict there won’t be many responses to this blog post because, if my guess is right, most critics of Scientology are true trump supporters. For that matter, so are most church scientologists, from what I hear. Black-and-white thinkers, all of them.
I agree. I wrote this over at Reddit:
Scientologists are more conditioned to believe in conspiracy theories. When Trump throws around conspiracies, it rings true to many scientologists. Also, it’s been said that Hubbard was politically right of Djengis Kahn. There is no compassion or real empathy in Scientology. It’s pretty much a dog-eat-dog ideology (to use Hubbard’s own language). He paints an Us vs. Them world view, an anti-establishment, anti-NWO, anti-Marcabian,… well anti. And Trump plays on similar fears. And on top of this, there is Hubbard’s “Scale of politics” (from the book Scientology 0-8) that pretty much dictates Scientologists to go for Trump.
“Also, it’s been said that Hubbard was politically right of Djengis Kahn.”
Whatever truth there may have been to that as the years went on, it was not his world view in the early years. The scale you posted at that link was expanded in *Science of Survival* to include Liberal at 3.5:
“At 3.5, we have the liberal. The liberal reasons well, accepts wide responsibilities, and is guided by high ethical principles. He is eager to seize upon any new idea which will improve the society, and he is not suggestible, being swayed this way and that by any propaganda, but reaches conclusions extremely rationally. He has a high regard for individual freedom, for property, and for the right of the powerfully productive person to be allowed to contribute to the society without hindrance, spontaneously and efficiently.”
That’s the highest the scale goes – 3.5. Perhaps if Integral Theory had been around in those years, he would have been placed it at 4.0, since it takes the most pandetermined view.
The information within the Wikileaks dumps arent really a conspiracy. The FBI dumps coming out now are not conspiracy. The pay to play in the Clinton Foundation is not conspiracy. The DNC and Clinton screwing over Sanders is now solidified fact as well.
I also beg to differ that the world is socially better. Peoples heads are being chopped off. An endless war rages on and on. We have the worst racial tension America has seen in 40 years, and the progressive presidential choice gets donations from the Saudis in one hand while they fund terrorism in the other (todays wikileaks dump). I guess thats as progressive as it gets!
Check the link for hard facts regarding the world being better off.
https://youtu.be/o1Ho8OrBzig Most interesting information … on both Clinton and Trump and USA
Yes, very interesting video. Thanks, Elizabeth.
Geir you should watch it. And you too, thetanforever. Also Dragos and katageek. Maybe even Rafael. 🙂
Let’s see if it will post as a video with this link:
Good.. yes it is most informative, the lady is a shark…
Or maybe even by Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera:
Marildi, why are most members of the church of Scientology in the US Trump supporters do you think?
One thing I heard is that they are against Hillary because she is in favor of mental health care along with physical – which they conclude means she is “for the psychs.”
I would imagine that objection, and whatever other propaganda, is coming down the lines from the top. But I suspect the real reason for wanting Trump is that he is very far right in his world view (leaning towards fascism) and DM probably resonates with that.
Btw, I think both Trump and DM are the Enneagram Personality Type Eight. Like all Enneagram Types, at the healthy levels at top of the scale a Type Eight has wonderful traits and abilities – but when they sink to the unhealthy levels (or start out in life at that level) they can even be psychopaths. Marty Rathbun stated one time that DM was not too bad to work with in the early years with him, but that he (DM) ended up as a psychopath.
Unhealthy levels of Type Eight:
4. Defying any attempt to control them, become completely ruthless, dictatorial, “might makes right.” The criminal and outlaw, renegade, and con-artist. Hard-hearted, immoral and potentially violent.
5. Develop delusional ideas about their power, invincibility, and ability to prevail: megalomania, feeling omnipotent, invulnerable. Recklessly over-extending self.
6. If they get in danger, they may brutally destroy everything that has not conformed to their will rather than surrender to anyone else. Vengeful, barbaric, murderous. Sociopathic tendencies. Generally corresponds to the Antisocial Personality Disorder.”
But why the dominance of right wing extremists in the church? Is it because the church attracts them, or is it because they move to the right in the church?
As I say, it comes from Miscavige, and before him LRH had become very “us vs. them” as a result of the decades-long concerted efforts of various government and private agencies, all of which wanted to shut down Scientology.
This is data that can be found in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) files. LRH was not just being paranoid – there really was a conspiracy to stop him. That is probably another thing the church likes about Trump – his conspiracy theories, since there had really been a conspiracy against the church and not just a “theory” about it. In PT, I think Trump it’s too radical to talk about conspiracies, but I do think there is a lot of “politics” going on – in both parties.
Anyway, Geir, I’m getting ready for a little trip over the weekend so I’m not going to be able to post much more than that.
If you change the word “conspiracy” to investigation, then yes Ron was paranoid and it is true.
Ron was a masterful writer of stories to persuade, to make things seem real.
Why wouldn’t anybody investigate scientology to see if it is true? Did you?
Did I investigate? Just to the degree that I’ve read what Marty Rathbun reported in his Memoirs book. Marty saw first hand the documents that the GO had stolen from the offices of the various government and private agencies. And it was in their own words that a conspiracy to shut down Scientology was spelled out. Have you read his book – *Memoirs of a Scientology Warrior*? Or done any investigation otherwise?
Well…I’m not Scientologist, but I’m a fiercely Republican supporter. I said Republican, not Donald Trump. I don’t even consider Trump a republican, he’s just a clown. Ted Cruz was my choice. But I wish GOP to win the Senate, for not allowing Killary Clinton to have too much power in her hands (Attorney General, CIA and FBI Directors, etc).
I think Hillary has been, for the most part, the victim of black propaganda. The recent email flap, which turned out to be much ado about nothing, was a good example. Not that she isn’t guilty of playing the “politics” games – just as all of them are – but it seems to me that this is basically unavoidable in American politics at this time, although I think it is destined to change. Anyway, I’d say a lot of people might be surprised at what a good president she turns out to be. 😉
Good description of Trump.
I don’t want to be counted on being a supporter LOL.. I really believe Geir is right Americans do deserve this,
they have voted for him because those who’ve are on the same level of thinking-believes as that man. birds of the feather… garbage no matter how you look at is just garbage even if packaged into a billion dollar wrapping … the number of votes showed what general state of mind on average American is in.
I am pleased living north of that border but unfortunately wind blows the smell of garbage so we all will get a whiff of it.
I think we would be taking a big risk with Trump as President. According to the tone scale, he fits in at 1.5 (although he may not have as much horsepower as some historical 1.5’s to carry out his political philosophy to such extreme lengths). Per Hubbard, here’s the 1.5 politically:
“The next familiar political level is the 1.5 level of fascism. The activities of Hitler and Mussolini and the social orders they produced are, of course, the examples which come to mind. The open declaration of intention to conquer, kill, and control by the most obvious and forceful methods is the mark of fascism. Justification is limited to the bluntest most bald-faced lies. Invalidation of other persons and social orders is straight-forward, angry, and lacking in any subtle pretense of reasonableness or moderation.
Here’s Hubbard’s Scale of politics:
2.0 Social Democracy
As you can easily see, Hubbard was clueless in this area.
I’m not sure what you base that opinion on exactly, but the description of Trump is amazingly accurate on this part of the 1.5 political philosophy:
“The open declaration of intention to conquer, kill, and control by the most obvious and forceful methods is the mark of fascism. Justification is limited to the bluntest most bald-faced lies. Invalidation of other persons and social orders is straight-forward, angry, and lacking in any subtle pretense of reasonableness or moderation.”
I agree fully on that
according to the mexican cenote culture, what I desire just for you is: a chain 😀
I’ve actually thought along the same lines. I’ve wondered whether or not to vote in an attempt to unleash Shiva the destroyer.
With Trumps hands on the nuclear codes, the quote of Oppenheimer from the Bhagavad Gita seems an actual prophesy, and not just literary expression …
But … I cannot vote for a ruthless narcissist. I will hope in the human race. I will vote for a candidate who at least admits global warming is a problem.
Anyway, Donald or Hillary, ultimately it does not matter. Because they are just puppets. And the true rulers are staying behind, putting their plans into work anyway.
It serves them very well when we all think that the “President” IS the main guy who is making decisions. Funny.
I think that the “shadow rulers” who btw own this whole project planet, and are probably high Marcabian officials, have everything here under control. Global warming to them is just another layer of manipulation. They can probably just manually change the temperature of this planet within days if they choose to.
No need to panic, no need to be concerned, they have everything under control.
One should just work on himself, improve spiritualy, be playful, be creative, and work over many lifetimes to become a better thetan and when this all messy project ends, then “be free” as a very bright and powerful (operating) thetan.
Thetanforever, what actual evidence is there that there are “shadow rulers”?
And what evidence is there for anyone being able to manually change the temperature of the planet?
I replied to You and Marildi, take a look.
I think it is mostly indirect evidence and use of mock-ups (creative processing).
It is a knowledge that resulted after years of looking at everything available, like various new age ideas, Scientology ideas, conspiracy theories, some politics, religions, movies, even some science.
I am honest, i won’t lie that i have solid scientific evidence. I operate with ideas like a philosopher, thinker, observer, creative processor..
But i will try to show what “logics” i am using. 🙂 (answers both for Marildi and Geir)
For example just this Donald VS Hilary whole thing, they are both unfit for president, are they really the best USA can get? Or somebody behind just picked them because they would be great puppets. Easy to control, easy to carry the bigger plans through them. You may think “it’s just greedy and stupid people”, but i see it differently, often people would make the right thing, but some other force is pushing toward different direction.
Then thing with technology, it is increasing rapidly, as if the guys behind are catalyzing it, pushing it because this whole planet is a big important project. Especially military technology which does not make any sense, because it only can destroy the planet.
But behold what Ken (Pilot) discovered, this whole solar system is in a sideway bubble and whenver the world is destroyed (happened many times) the “shadow rulers” rewind the time back around 10 years, then change stuff and the destruction is avoided. This may seem totally unbelievable and unnaceptable to you but that is fine. One should not accept any evidence that seems unreal and does not connect. And i am very surprised that over many years nobody gives a shit about Pilot’s discoveries.
One other thing i can think up now, is the way newborns are distributed on this planet, the “new captured thetans” are mostly pushed into poor countries in Africa, Asia, and Brasil. Because t is easier to control them that way. Why all the advanced countries modernized one or two children per family. It is harder to control educated and more satisfied thetans.
Evidence of how they can change the temperature of whole planet? Sorry i do not have any. I am using the logic that they are using very much advanced technology and can do plenty of stuff that we did not even think up in science-fiction. Ten years ago i would never think that 3D printing is possible. Hundred years ago nobody could imagine a computer.
There are dozen more logics. I may recall them later, but for now this is enough.
In case i am dead wrong, then it does not really matter. If we are on our own, Earthlings, i am sure whatever happens it can’t be that bad, even if we nuke each other, we will just float to other nearby planets available and reincarnate there, probably they are much saner, disciplined but also more controlled.
Maybe there’s not much real evidence now, but keep this in mind for future, there may be more solid evidence, the controllers may become sloppy because as people become more focused on computers and become dependent on technology, and their perceptions weakened.
Just keep this in mind in case it is at least half true.
And if you are curious what is their purpose for this planet, it is to increase everybodys morale for battle, so that we eventually become suitable warriors for space battles that are occuring within current Invader eras. I suspect fifty to two hundred years from now we will be massively trained with super technology to become space warriors, probably going against the fifth invaders.
I think there is no need for extraordinary explanations for the events were see in the world.
So what you say is “There is no need to think outside of the box” . Just think inside of it and everything can be explained.
Not my way. 🙂
That’s not what I said.
Thetanforever, thanks for your reply. However, what you wrote seems to come down to conjecture and hearsay.
I imagine there have been countless explanations and theories, for all kinds of things, that seemed very logical – but were without scientific or other evidence, or one’s own perception – which were later found to be completely false. This is what I try to keep in mind.
So it did not ring a bell for you, neither for Geir. 🙂
Nice ack. 🙂
I should add to what I wrote that I don’t think what you described – or something else, just as radical – isn’t possible. I’m not one of those “all is material” people. Not at all. But I have a tendency to be gullible, so I try to keep an open mind even if it seems to explain all the data.
“I am honest, i won’t lie that i have solid scientific evidence. I operate with ideas like a philosopher, thinker, observer, creative processor..”
LOL… all the above? no wonder you have illusions like that…
You are supposed to create lots and lots of illusions, that’s the point of creative processing. Once you create tons of them then you can better sense what is “real” and what “unreal”.
Really????? WOW… incredible!!! mindboggling.. and that works for you?
I think you have created a bit too much.. because by now you have passed the reality.. you don’t recognize what is and what is not real.
Why you invalidate me so much. It hurts. You have better theory? Tell me your theory.
when posting publicly than that person has to accept that some opposition and take the blows as they come..
Why any one should agree with you.. ? who ever said that we need agreement in order to have out belief stand as is? Your beliefs haven’t been taken away , they are still there and just because I believe in something totally different why should your feeling be? I don’t have theories to share… my days telling stories fairy tales by the fireside are over.
invalidation feeling being invalidated is your belief because you believe it can be done to you.
no one can hurt any one unless that person believes that they are be hurt, insulted, put down.
You said my invalidation has hurt you badly… now lets reverse what has happened .. Why you believe that your reality is more valuable than mine ?
I could be saying the same ”just because you wont accept my belief than you have hurt my feeling badly [ small violin -music please..]
it is you who have invalidated my beliefs SOB…. crocodile tears are flowing… LOL
as you can see BLAME is not on the same level of taking responsibility for our self, where we are at !!!! so don’t you dump crap on me..
LOL…LOL…LOL.. “I suspect fifty to two hundred years from now we will be massively trained with super technology to become space warriors, probably going against the fifth invaders.”
LOL.. right you are mate, i am with you on that!
I am already polishing my armor left over from King Arthurs days and I be ready for that battle, I be wearing that sucker when the time comes… just a slight snag.. how can one get out of it fast when the need to pee arises? any suggestion?
What should i say now, idk.
Space futuristic equipment is advanced technology. That has to be discovered yet in the future.
You will not need old shields. They can’t work in space. 🙂
Are you in Serbia? that is why the goat milk! good choice!
I stay with my equipment from King Arthurs age… it worked really well than .. I think I just have it modernized for space have water purifier installed into it.. waste not want not.. that was the old kings motto! therefore I go with that.. 🙂
Just think I will be the most stylist and different looking space solider and I might be even future-d in the Vogue magazine!
Marildi, do you believe in auditing?
Also, do you believe in solo processing?
And what Guru do you worship?
I aks, because Elizabet Hamre said some things, so i ask you for answers directly. I do not want to assume wrong ideas about you. 🙂
No, I do not “worship” any guru, including LRH. But I do believe in auditing – very much so. However, I think some of the other teachings include wisdom that the scientology philosophy and tech lack, and I don’t think the tech necessarily takes a person to full enlightenment. To me, enlightenment includes not just the ability to operate as a thetan (that is, OT to whatever degree) but wisdom of “this world” as well. Actually, LRH said that too, but I don’t think he had a workable path to that wisdom.
At the same time, scientology has wisdom and tech that other teachings don’t, and I believe other teachers could use both of these (the data and the tech) to help their followers do better in life – as well as to help them handle the “shadows” or “ego” or whatever description they have for the barriers to enlightenment. I’ve commented on this more than once, here on Geir’s and on other blogs. I guess you weren’t paying attention. 🙂
A very succinct and well put summary, Marildi
Thanks, Geir. The thing I appreciate about your blog is that it was the first to get me thinking about (looking at) scientology – and a lot of other things. And it is still the one that feels the most like home – in spite of the differences of opinion among all of us.
I guess you and I do agree about Trump, though. 😉
Thanks Marildi for nice answers. 🙂
I thought so. Elizabeth is complicating things that should be simple.
I think last time i was reading comments actively here was 5 years ago. So i only vaguely remember you and others. I looked occasionaly at Geir’s blogs (because i have solid disagreements with him), but now i am bit more active, since human disscusions are leading to lots of ITSA. 🙂
What is your solid disagreement with me?
I believe in conspiracies, you do not.
You think that global warming is #1 important thing to solve, for me it is very unimportant. Since i am not good at cold weather i actually like if the temperatures raised permanently in winter.
Then you probably think that Ron Hubbard went completely bonkers somewhere along the way, but for me, he was removed in 1972 and replaced with a fake one (clone or something alike), i said that on your blog somewhere years ago, and your response was “It smells like tinfoil”. 🙂
That all is challenging, and it is a good way to grow more ITSA. When i have different viewpoints than others then i try to go beyond “they are wrong and i am right”, i look for whys and i broaden my understanding.
Good thing is, you are respectful and you are not using ad homs. Your blog is a good ground.
”’No need to panic, no need to be concerned, they have everything under control.””
good think that you write that here because if you will say it at work place or to your friends they will be calling the wagon and straight jacket for you my dear. !!!
One should just work on himself, improve spiritualy, be playful, be creative, and work over many lifetimes to become a better thetan and when this all messy project ends, then “be free” as a very bright and powerful (operating) thetan.”
I wonder what you sprinkle each morning on your breakfast c.? has to be some very heavy stuff.!!
““be free” as a very bright and powerful (operating) thetan.” ?????? …..now that takes a cake! LOL.. operating what??? you haven’t the clue what the hell LRH was talking about because he did not know what he was talking about either…
I do not understand what is “wagon and straight jacket”,
For breakfast i drink goat milk with some cocoa/coffee and honey/sugar. 🙂 I don’t sprinkle anything.
I do not work with perfect definitions. So when i say operating thetan, well that does not have to be 100% what Ron meant. I am still researching and i do not know everything.
Hey, tell me what do you think about my message. Do you think there are “shadow rulers”? Do you think we are being secretly implanted here to become space soldiers in future?
Thank you for your attention. I am glad that somebody unexpected said something. I know you a lil bit, because i was reading your comments 5 years ago here on Geir’s blog, and back then you seemed to be more “operatinging” and with more tolerance. 😉
wagon and straight jacket …. I recommend you look up those words-their meaning in the scn dictionary .. well I think it should be there ..
my tolerance level went out the window when I given up agreeing in order to belong into the group..
I don’t don’t believe in that crap you are writing about.. that is total nonsense.. but if you care to believe in that because that ides gives you security, make you feel better, important by all means … your universe.. you have what you believe in. But please don’t accept that other too take to that idea.. Your universe is a private place… and no one can duplicate, understand why you believe in what you believe in.. What you believe in is only real to you.
Nevermind about “wagon and staright jacket” i am fine with words i do not understand.
I did not say that other MUST accept my ideas. I came here, where are people that may have similar ideas, and that may understand these ideas, agree or disagree. I shared my genius idea. 🙂 I want/ed to see what others think.
“””my tolerance level went out the window when I given up agreeing in order to belong into the group..
I don’t don’t believe in that crap you are writing about..”””
I want more tolerance from you. You do not need to belong in “my” group. It is easier to talk when there is more tolerance.
“””when posting publicly than that person has to accept that some opposition and take the blows as they come.. Why any one should agree with you.. ? who ever said that we need agreement in order to have out belief stand as is? Your beliefs haven’t been taken away , they are still there””””
That’s all fine.
“”” just because I believe in something totally different”””
Ok, back to start. What you believe in? So this is a prison planet. What do you think is our purpose here on this planet? Why we are imprisoned?
There are dozen of possibilities i can think up. I described the possibility that seems most realistic to me.
“”””invalidation feeling being invalidated is your belief because you believe it can be done to you.
no one can hurt any one unless that person believes that they are be hurt, insulted, put down. “””
True. But let’s just be more tolerant, so at least i can understand you better.
”’tolerance ”’ means to me is agreeing with the same beliefs… a make believe that yes I agree with you and now we can talk on that subject… But I am fine totally fine with your beliefs… the space thing you believe in… therefore I have nothing to say on that item. 🙂
“””You said my invalidation has hurt you badly… “””
Not badly, but a bit, for a moment. (Good to be honest?) And i do try to confront and take responsibility.
But i am not a super OT that is invulnerable to invalidations, YET! 🙂
“”””Why you believe that your reality is more valuable than mine ?
I could be saying the same ”just because you wont accept my belief than you have hurt my feeling badly [ small violin -music please..]
it is you who have invalidated my beliefs SOB…. crocodile tears are flowing… LOL”””””
To me my reality is more valuable than yours. To you your reality is more valuable than mine. That is fine.
But i am certain that i did not invalidate your reality. After all you did not share your beliefs yet here.
“””as you can see BLAME is not on the same level of taking responsibility for our self, “”””
I avoid blaming. I agree that taking responsibility is the way.
“”””Are you in Serbia? that is why the goat milk! good choice!””””
Yes i live in Serbia. But i am Slovakian. 🙂 Goat milk is practical and healthy i think.
“”””I stay with my equipment from King Arthurs age… it worked really well than .. I think I just have it modernized for space have water purifier installed into it.. waste not want not.. that was the old kings motto! therefore I go with that.. 🙂
Just think I will be the most stylist and different looking space solider and I might be even future-d in the Vogue magazine! “”””
Fine, you wear whatever armor you want. But maybe the OTs will be able to escape the battle. Fighting is a waste of time, probably normal space citizens have no morale for battles. That is why they put us here to this isolated planet and make us hostile and angry, frustrated here. They push our desire to fight.
Look at America, so many angry people there. That’s part of the plan!!
I given the answers in my blog as a comment .
When Trump was running I was thinking along the same lines. I sort of wanted him to win just because he is insane. America seems to need a swift kick in the ass.
The way we run the educational system, medical system and social security are good examples of how not to do it.
Ask an American about “Socialized” anything and a good percentage of people still spout McCarthy era hatred, even when you press them and ask “What is socialism?” and they can’t answer. And don’t let them know that America already has thousands of social systems. Fire departments for example.
I am an ex-scientologist and I’m an ex-pat living in a country with socialized health care (thank god). I listen to conspiracy theories for entertainment. Alex Jones for example, how many of his theories have been checked and found so full of shit that any other broadcaster would have folded up shop in embarrassment? Yet, Trump is a fan of his show!
One thing I find truly fascinating is the correlation between L Ron Hubbard’s grandiose narcissistic meanderings and generalities in his lectures, interviews and books to Trump. LRH obviously had a better grasp of the vernacular, but they are both con men. I’m currently reading Bare Faced Messiah and can’t help but think how this type of manipulation of groups applies.
Well, now the racist, conspiracy nut, idiot will be the next president. Let’s see how badly he can screw everything up. This idea, in both parties now, that one should support their party cause just makes it all the worse and a GOP run senate may actually begin agreeing with his ideas.
Good comment. With the recent revelations about Trumps Russian connections and the Russian involvement in the election via hacking – I can see how this could lead to the most embarrasing times in US history. We could see a monumental fall of a US president.
Hey, American’s did elect Richard Nixon. Twice!
You cannot compare Richard Nixon with Donald Trump. Nixon was a great President who faced terrible times, Trump is just a clown.
Maybe even a killer clown. We’ll see…
Good times or bad times, do not forget everybody the most important thing on this evening: Merry Christmas!
Same to you, Dragos – Merry Christmas to you and yours!
And to you too, Geir, and everybody here. ❤
Same to you all. Merry Christmas!
In about 38 minutes Donald Trump will become the next President of the United States. Under his presidency, let’s hope our Planet will not become a Planet of the Apes.
Hey, dragos72 — No way! — Apes don’t go “ape” over the building of border walls! or DO they??? 😀
Another reason not to knock apes dragos; they haven’t YET been “fortunate’ (?) enough, to have developed an insidious, but (deliberately ignored) ‘flaw’. largely ‘responsible’ for human perpetrated decimation of entire planetary ecosystems, habitats and therefore vulnerable life forms, balance in bio diversity, (via dangerous micro wave emissions) and unprecedented environmental destruction of formerly symbiotic structures of our fellow earthlings.
Yes, dragos, it may (indeed does!) fly in the face of our current value system/s, but I believe that our joint (all earthlings) entitlement to survive in ‘contentment’ within our respective habitats, depends entirely upon our discovery of that fatal ‘flaw’ rampant in our current ‘progressive’ human make up ………. “I WANT!!!”… and then to act with urgency … in modifying this lifestyle construct which we have now come to believe, is indispensable.
In short, I don’t believe we have any need to fear apes participation in our habitat at all, but rather to look at our own oblivious emulation of lemmings headed toward mass suicide over a cliff, while we UNQUESTIONINGLY obey the command from the newly worshipped God On High ——— ” THOU SHALL WANT”
Indeed, is there any workable life formula in existence, that does not include “balance?” — just asking.
Geir and everybody,
Pertinent to the above blog post and the comments on this thread, here’s a quote from Daniel Kahneman’s book *Thinking, Fast and Slow*:
“An availability cascade is a self-sustaining chain of events, which may start from media reports or a relatively minor event and lead up to public panic and large-scale government action.”
A recent article by Ken Urquhart essentially describes how to set into motion what could also be called an “availability cascade” – but this one is positive, not negative, and rests on the principle that we all create reality together, whether in a practical sense or a spiritual sense, or both.
Whichever way we want to look at it, Ken makes a great case for how the cascade he describes “will enable an unstoppable world-wide energy,”
Here’s the link: http://urqbones.com/2017/03/03/looking-at-failure-and-success-3-truth-or-dare/
For those that don’t know who Ken Urquhart is, he’s a former Scientologist who worked closely with L. Ron Hubbard for a number of years, first as “butler” and head of his household at Saint Hill in the early-to-late ‘60s. In the ‘70s, he was the LRH Communicator on the Apollo and then became the LRH Personal Communicator, which was the principal executive aide of LRH, until 1978. After that, he continued his tech training and became a Class IX NOTs auditor at Flag. In 1982, he routed out of the Sea Org because of fundamental disagreements with how the group had changed. He then became an independent auditor for a number of years, mostly delivering OT levels, starting out as an auditor with David Mayo’s group until it disbanded. He is basically retired from auditing now.
Ken started his new blog just recently, and most of the above data I read on one of his earlier blog posts (the one about his Scientology career). The main reason I’m relaying this bio data is that he does refer to Scientology at the end of the blog post linked in the above comment, and I think the bio data indicates that Ken is pretty highly qualified as a reliable source on the subjects of LRH and Scientology. He has had quite a bit of experience in both tech and admin/management, and not only knew LRH but was friends with him, although they did have a falling out at a certain point in time.
Ken has put out several blog posts so far, and they are all excellent, but the most recent one, described above, really blew me away, and that’s the one I especially hope you’ll all read. (Especially you, Geir, as you are an opinion leader too.)
And now what?
