A warning

To those who try to make themselves part of the “inclusive” left. Be aware that you must keep your language perfectly uncontroversial and bland. Any discussion of hot topics, gender, sexuality, disability, etc is a proverbial minefield. Comparisons between different genders, sexualities, disabilities, etc, should be avoided at all costs.

Anything that might make any person feel marginalized or offended, even if no such person exists, the mere possibility will bring the ire of the toxic radical left social justice warriors and they move in herds. So a single wrong word will bring a literal stampede down on you.

Be aware that being factually correct is never an excuse either. Arguing that something is factually correct is just digging your own grave deeper.

The name of this blog describes me quite well. The sad result of that is that I cannot go anywhere near the “inclusive left”.

Religious Rainbows

I’ve seen people complain that the LGBTQ movement “stole” the rainbow from god.

Ahem. Seriously Karen, god created the rainbow as a memory aid so that he wouldn’t forget that he promised not to wipe out every living thing on the planet (again).

If anything, the LGBTQ movement is using it for something positive for a change.

Russia today

Putin isnt afraid of having NATO on its borders. What Putin fears is to have a well functioning democratic EU member with abundant russian ties, family or otherwise, so close to Russia that the russian people becomes aware of what they are missing out on.

A divided nation

The United States of America of today is a very divided nation. I’ve come to realize that one factor could be the overall philosophy of its society. Laws, taxes and healthcare all have strong vibes of “every man for himself”. As such, americans always contend with us-against-them, unlike European nations where especially taxes is much more inclusive in being used for building the nation and serving every citizen.

One can only hope that America takes a left turn and starts building one nation, by the people, for the people, before anarchy rips it apart.

Stock trading

In late 2018, I was watching my savings account grow larger than it has ever been before, and it frustrated me that the bank interest has been zero for quite some time now. I started contemplating other ways to save money to get some interest on my savings.

My father has been trading with stocks and other papers all his life and against his advice, I decided to give it a try. I bought my first stocks in July 2018.

The first few months, the stocks I had bought kept losing in value, but I didnt sell. My disability has taught me patience. I bought a couple other stocks and made my first sale, with profit. I eventually sold my first acquired stocks too, with profit.

I havent made many deals. Since 2018 Ive only concluded 13 deals, but all of them profitable.

With no sales in 2018, I obviously didnt earn any profits that year. But for 2019 my “interest” was 19% and so far in 2020, Ive earned another 38%. A good result, but my investment capital is too small to make a living off it.

Ofcourse, I hope I can keep the profitability going, and that my strategy is sound and not just contingient on luck. Time will tell. Wish me luck!

Trickle down economics.

In the United States, the republican party are advocates of trickle down economics. What it amounts to is basically “let the rich keep their money, when they invest it, the money trickles down to the poor”.

Now, Ive just realized the obvious problem with this.

Any person who invest money do so to grow their own wealth (obviously). When you invest, you want to get a return on your investment that is greater than inflation, anything else is a bad investment. But inflation can be roughly interpreted as the measure of Everyones wealth.

Therein lies the problem. The rich only invest in things that increase their own wealth faster than the population average. This means, that no matter what, the rich will continue to get richer while the poor keeps getting poorer.

The only way to stop this is for government to take money from the rich to give to the poor. The simplest way being to have higher taxes on rich than on the poor. Good luck selling that idea to rich old white dudes in the US congress and senate.

Evolution vs creatards

We have all heard it before.

If humans evolved from monkeys, why do we still have monkeys?

Besides the obvious incorrectness of this unintelligent question, try asking yourself;

If white people evolved from africans, why do we still have africans?

Creatards will have a mental breakdown if they ever hear this, but the fact remains, caucasians evolved from africans and the reason africans still exist is that on the african continent, having dark skin is still better than having fair/white skin.

Being willfully ignorant is fine. As long as you dont try to cripple your children and others around you with your ignorance.

Basic civility lost

In philosophy, the concept of reality, what can be proven and what can not, proposes that the only thing that can be proved is that “I exist”. How can you doubt your own existance, unless you actually exist? You can not, however, prove that any other individual or thing exists.

As far as reality is concerned, all it is – is chemical signals interpreted by your brain. As far as we know. It is not impossible that we all actually live in a Matrix. Or that we are living in a dream or delusion. We can’t prove it.

However, it seems that if we start acting out ideas of being the only being in existence and everyone else being puppets or holograms, we tend to be put into places like insane asylums or prisons. So for all parties involved, living and acting according to the premise that our brains actually interpret the reality around us correctly, seems quite beneficial.

More and more people seems to have lost this basic concept of civility. They doubt the government, the police, news organizations, coworkers, neighbours, and even friends and family. Nothing is real, everything is fake, and “they” are out to get me.

  • “The moon landing was a hoax”
  • “9/11 was an inside job”
  • “The earth is flat”

If you don’t believe anyone, civilization falls apart. It requires a basic level of implicit trust. Trust that is now being eroded by a tsunami of made up outright falsehoods, as well as distortions of reality.

Welcome to the new reality, where nothing is real, except you.
