  1. The two most important things to ever discuss in this life are politics and religion; one has to do with how we live our lives here in this world and the other has to do with where we shall spend eternity. It’s no wonder that these are the two topics that are forboden by the world, who’s god is Satan.

    I’m wondering why anyone interested in searching out truth would blindfold themselves to the history and current abominations of the Vatican and even dare associate themselves with the most abominable and wicked religious entity in the history of the world, even the great whore that’s detailed in Revelation 17 & 18 (KJV), i.e. the Vatican City which has revived the celebration and worship of the ancient gods of Babylon through her whoredoms. Catholicism is satanism.

    But hey, the scriptures must needs be fulfilled 🤷‍♂️

    Maybe this tool will come out of her before the hour of her destruction which is to come.

    • In my view Politics & Religion seem to be more about who man relates to: man to man (politics) & man to “God” (religion), as opposed to man’s physical life now & a supposed life after he physically dies.

      We have been institutionalized all of our lives as to what to think and/or believe regarding both of these matters (through mass media), and it takes a lot for those who have fully embraced the indoctrinations of either or both of them to see clear of it.

      Keep in mind, the only reason anyone is able to identify Catholicism as “the great whore that’s detailed in Revelation” is because that religious entity put that medium of communication (the book of Revelation) in the Bible in the first place. And then religious indoctrination insisted that communication piece was penned *after* the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, when in all likelihood it was penned beforehand and therefore applied to *that* great city (pre-70 AD Jerusalem).

      • Actually if you study Roman Catholicism historically, you will find that the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church was not at all in favor of putting the Revelation in the Bible, they have tried over the years and are still trying to replace it with something like the Shepherd of Hermes etc.
        The book of the Revelation has been accepted as authentic by the “Protestant Christians” so it’s not so easy to remove it.

        • Interesting.

          Still, I believe the reason we have a Bible (with any “New Testament” texts at all) is due to the early Catholic Church, isn’t it? (I’m willing to be corrected on this notion.)

          • Not necessarily, the Roman Catholic Church has part of it’s beginning in the church at Rome, which the book of Romans was written to.
            The way I understand it is, at least part of the church at Rome apostasized and eventually became the Roman Catholic Church.
            The manuscripts that the KJV Bible comes from were preserved and passed down by the true church, not the Roman Catholic Church, the Roman Catholic Church has always tried to destroy the true Word of God.
            Much of history that is readily available was either written or influenced by Roman Catholics.
            From approximately 300AD to 1500AD the true church for the most part has been largely underground, and in a lot of places in the world it still is.
            There is other (true) history available, but it isn’t as easy to find.
            The best and most accurate history of the Bible that I know of, in a fairly easy to follow video presentation is a three part series put out by “Adullam Films Production
            Written and Directed by Christian J. Pinto”
            You can search for it on YouTube.
            The first video is: “A Lamp In The Dark: The Untold History of the Bible”
            The second video is: “TARES AMONG THE WHEAT”
            The third video is: “BRIDGE TO BABYLON
            You can also purchase these directly from Adullam Films

              • The true church is made up of people that have been transformed by the power of God, these people have Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior, and they actually live out His teachings contained in the New Testament.

              • What does it mean to “have Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior”?

              • That’s a big question that deserves a thorough answer.
                I’m a very busy person and don’t have extra time to kill.
                But in short, Jesus forgave my sins and delivered me from the power of sin, and changed my whole life, nothing has ever been the same, you might think it’s just in my head, but the people that know me well sure know better.
                And because of what the Lord Jesus has done for me I desire to obey His Word and to allow Him to guide and direct me through His Holy Spirit that lives within me. And by the way the Lord Jesus gives me the strength and ability to obey and follow Him.

    • These two guys are brave soldiers in deed.

      The eye opening interview above hardy adresses religiosity.
      «The Catholic Current » (who lifts the name of Jesus Christ) invited Corbett to discuss how mainstream media dishes out lies. Bravo to Corbett for his open source heart, mind and down right hard work. Truth will prevail and justice will have its day more speedily with the help of these kinds of talk shows.

  2. Eschatology! Fatalism. How ironic the Son of Man advocated for the advancement of Allah US’s BeGott’n God and Dios and the Holy Ghost’s altruistically aspirational AIM to “Love One (&) AnOTHER(s!).

    #GodIsLove, PERiOD! (Reference 1 John 4:8)

    Feliz Viernes, Amigos.

  3. When I was a Special Ed TA back in the early 70’s I put together a slide show based on the book, Subliminal Seduction. One of the slides had Walter at his news desk and the word S E X was all over the back drop.

    I got the OK to show it at normal High Schools in Orinda, Lafayette, CA. Good response from the kids.

    INRE: The show.

    Evidence leads to proof which is then a fact. There is NO evidence of god, jesus, or satan beyond heartfelt personal testimony, all based on man made myths to steal sovereign spiritual expression to control humans out of fear.

    Therefore can’t have an “anti-christ” without a christ. Just because psychotic, sociopaths choose to hide their evil ways in religious mythology does not validate the myth. They are simply cowards playing malevolent games of hate and harm. It is the 21st century, wake up.

    • There is actually historical documentation outside of the Bible that supports the idea that a person like Jesus Christ did exist.
      And if we would assume for a minute that there actually exists an evil being like Satan, like the Bible says and describes him, then you would actually be playing into his plan of deception by saying Satan doesn’t exist and it’s just a myth.
      The quote: to steal sovereign spiritual expression to control humans out of fear. Is simply not true for genuine Born Again Christians, they are the most fearless people on the face of the earth, which is why they are hated worldwide, genuine Christians are fearless loving people that are able to think for themselves. The governments of the world find that very inconvenient, it’s hard to make people do things that they believe are wrong when they are genuinely free and filled with the Spirit of Christ.

      • Food for thought…

        Evidence leads to proof which is then a fact. There is NO evidence that GOD, JESUS, SATAN, HEAVEN, HELL, ETC. exists beyond heartfelt personal testimony, all based on man made myths to steal sovereign spiritual expression to control humans out of fear or the NEED for a god.

        All organized religions are based on man-made “gods” used for power and control over others. They strip humans of sovereign spiritual expression of thanks for the miracle of sentience to be replaced with rule books of fear from made up evils like satan, hell, demons, sin, etc.

        • There is no non-Christian record of Jesus before the second century. The references in Flavius Josephus (end of the first century) can be dismissed as later Christian insertions.

        • The Apostle Paul, (if he really existed) by “his” own admission, never knew the mythical Jesus but, instead, based his entire faith on a vision he claimed came to him about Jesus’ resurrection.

        • There is no historical validation of King Herod’s supposed slaughter of Jewish children at the time of Jesus’s alleged birth

        • All the Gospels derive their basic story of Jesus of Nazareth from one source: whoever wrote the Gospel of Mark. The Acts of the Apostles, is 2nd century myth-making.

        • “Paul” created a theology about the mythical Jesus, a man that he did not even know, 50 or more years after the “death” of “Jesus.”

        • The Gospels are widely agreed to have been written between 40 and 80 years after his supposed lifetime by unknown authors who were not personally acquainted with him. Their miracle stories done in general terms have no clue of time, place or details about the person or persons who benefited.

        Therefore can’t have an “anti-christ” without one. Just because psychotic, sociopaths choose to hide their evil “Satanic” ways in religious mythology does not validate the myth. They are simply cowards playing malevolent games of hate and harm.

        First of all, you must realize “Jesus” was a mix or composite of different individuals and the name was chosen several hundred years later at the Council of Nicea, when king Constantine ordered the various religious sects to come together and create a single religion for Rome.

        It was then that the name “Jesus” Christ was chosen. Comparative Religion shows that the motif or “story format” of “Jesus” already existed in numerous religions for over one thousand years prior to the alleged time of “Jesus”: Krishna, Horus, Orpheus, Bacchus, Osiris, Dionysus, Buddha, Apollo, Hercules, Adonis, Ormuzd, Mithras, Indra, OEdipus, Quetzalcoatle, etc.

        • I would have to disagree with your sources, I’ve heard similar things before. And the Bible talks about scoffers, and people that don’t want to retain God in their knowledge, there are lots of people like that in the world today. Each of us will make our choices what we believe or don’t believe, and will ultimately have to accept the consequences, whatever that is.
          I find it interesting that much of the persecution against Christians (I’m not saying that you are involved in persecuting Christians, I don’t know you) comes from people that claim to not believe in any higher power. So if those people would be right and there wouldn’t be a God, then why do they care if someone believes in a God, they have nothing to lose. Now if those people are wrong and there is a God, they have everything to lose.
          One example is the communist governments, I know many stories of Christians in communist countries that the government is trying to reprogram without success, because greater is He (the Holy Spirit) that is in them then he (Satan) that is in the world.
          The hatred and animosity coming from some of those communist type of governments against Christians, because they know they have no power over them, is a testimony to a higher power within the Christians.

          The genuine Christians are the only people in the world that I know of that truly believe in individual freedom.
          (The reason I say this is because as a rule if people are threatened with death, if they for example don’t kill someone that, let’s say the government wants them to kill, they will comply, no matter how much they claimed to believe in individual freedom before that,(example of this would be the account of Dirk Willems and the thief catcher)).
          True Christians will not persecute anyone no matter what those people believe. Because we love all men we will warn people of the direction they are going etc. But we don’t harm, punish, or put people in prison for what they believe or don’t believe.

          • Some people just aren’t worth the effort or work that goes into responding.
            Leave me ALONE.

          • us_s, I’m afraid there are many in America who persecute *Christians that embrace Christianity* largely because of what that religion has done with their sacred book (the Bible) — elevating the book to a divine status, de-rooting much of its content from their proper context & twisting it to tell a different story, and then brainwashing the masses with their ideas to ultimately gain power & control over them. All of these actions are wrong. I mean, they are evil by their own book’s standards — the kind of thing “Satan”, the Father of Lies, would do.

            Unfortunately, many end up rejecting “God” and calling themselves “atheist”, when what I think a large portion of those people are really doing is rejecting *the God portrayed by Christianity*. (I’m thinking that’s the God you were referring to when you made your statements regarding what people might lose should they not believe in Him.)

            When you say, “they have everything to lose”, I’m thinking you are referring to their life in the hereafter (please correct me if I’m wrong). If so, the likely reason you think that is because the religion of Christianity has told you there’s a life in the hereafter. But there is no proof of such a thing.

            When we physically die, we “give up the ghost”, and we exist no more. That much we all can see. What happens to our “ghost” thereafter, nobody really knows.

            I’m afraid many who are caught up in religion focus too much attention, time & energy on what is unknown and not enough on that which is known.

            I do think people are missing out on the wisdom that can be found in books like the Bible, but I don’t believe those books are necessary for life — meaning I believe people can live without them because wisdom can be found elsewhere.

            We just need to pay attention to the things that really matter in life — the realities of this life, of this world and of all that comprise it — discerning truth from falsehood and then learn from it. 🙂

            • I would disagree, because either the Bible is true and needs to be obeyed and the Jehovah God of the Bible exists as He says in His Word, and Jesus Christ is who He said He is. Or it’s the biggest book of lies that ever existed.
              And sure many people profess one thing and live something else. But that’s not a valid reason to turn our back on truth.
              The Bible tells us “…..they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction” 2Pe 3:16

              • Who told you the Bible is “the Word of” Jehovah God? The Book itself doesn’t make that claim.

                The Bible is made up of texts written by men, transcribed by men, compiled by men and translated by men. And it is used by men to teach things.

                While there may be a divine fingerprint on it, or even all over it, the fact remains it was generated through and handled by mankind over many generations.

                Once that reality is faced and the book is accepted for what it is, readers must then become discerning as to what is true & what is not, what is right & what is wrong, and what to ultimately believe concerning its contents.

                In other words readers can no longer simply rest on the preconceived notion that it’s all true and right. We have to determine these things for ourselves.

              • So the Bible does call itself the Word of the Lord over and over in different ways.

              • The Bible may contain words attributed to “God”, but that doesn’t make the entire book “the Word of” God.

                For example, the letters written in the New Testament are clearly the words of the men who penned them, yet that correspondence often gets lumped together with other texts that say, “and God said…” (or something to that effect) and the total package gets identified as “the Word of God” when clearly not all of it is, in that regard.

              • So I definitely believe the whole Bible is the word of God to mankind.
                But I realize my belief has to do with faith, like it says in Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
                I believe God made us creatures of choice, so you have the liberty to believe what you want.
                But the original thought I was trying to bring out was, that people that claim to either not believe in God or doubt parts of the Bible, often tend to get upset and sometimes even persecute those that choose to follow Jesus through the teaching of the Bible. Which includes preaching to others of “righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come”
                We don’t push what we believe down other people’s throats, or force others to believe what we believe, anyone can choose to walk away or not listen etc., we’re not going to get upset.
                But for some reason I find when I’m sharing with someone that doesn’t believe in God etc., they get upset that I believe in a God that they don’t think exists, and they want to argue and try to prove to me that God doesn’t exist. If God really doesn’t exist, why does it upset those people that think He doesn’t exist when us people that believe He does proclaim it?

              • Men are flawed with sin but the bible was taken and verified by the historians of the time, Josephus was Not a christian but historian. What did God say in Samuel about a king? He will remove your freedoms and your $ but the jewish begged for one like the other countries…that sure came true! Our problem began in the garden and original sin, weird how we fallen so far. When you think of a book written so long ago, it is written so eloquently, nothing compares. Its so easy to blame the God, the book or the Jesus didnt exist but not see the real perversion is man himself, a sinner. Christians are told to “fear not” and without the bible you don’t have a triune God. If you have kids, you know they don’t listen but you would do anything for them. The bible is you connecting with your father. Ironically or divinely has survived though wars, floods and damnation which much has come to pass and archeology as well as science proves this more as time passes

            • 2tim 3:16
              All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped….

              Breathed out counts as word of surly?

              • Duck, is that letter to Timothy “breathed out by God”?

            • Pretty sure that if you write words that I “breathe out” then they WOULD be called “The Word Of Duck”

              Here are my words but you never hear my voice or smell my tobaccoey breath.

              So the Bible DOES refer to itself as the Word Of God, in its entirety…. If it IS or is NOT did a question I will leave you to answer for yourself.

              • Duck, the letter to Timothy housed in the Bible from which you quoted refers to “All Scripture” as being “breathed out by God”. What “Scripture” is he referring to? His own correspondence? And the correspondence of other men he likely never read? And to whatever else some future council of men deemed worthy to include in what we understand today to be the Bible?

            • Look dude…. You don’t have to believe it’s True but your just playing the silly Higher Criticism word games and mental gymnastics with THAT angle.

              Also its simple to cut the Gordian knot your tying….

              a) No God is sending a message they Bible…. Solution = “ why do you need a solution? It’s made up”

              B) God IS sending message thru Bible….. solution = “ Well if GOD is sending the message He can ensure that the corpus of writing put in HIS book is correct can’t he??? after all He is God”

              So either the question of Tim does not matter OR God sent the message knowing it would end up in the Bible

              • It’s not a matter of whether or not I or someone else believes the Bible is true.

                The point I was trying to make is that the book (From Genesis to Revelation) has been **propped up by an institution of man** (Christianity) as being *authored by* the Creator (identified therein as “God”).

                Well, how do they know that? How can they make that claim? What is their proof? It’s a bold claim with nothing concrete to back it up.

                Sure, folks can believe that claim or not. That’s not the point. My point is this contributes to how the *religious* media sausage is made:

                It starts with a sacred text that gets branded as Divine and is ultimately utilized as a tool to brainwash & manipulate the masses.

              • Duck I appreciate your insights, you’re spot on when you call it Higher Criticism, as you well know it started in the garden of eden with “hath God said”

            • Carriew

              Dude, your not trying to prove or disprove the Bible.

              Your whining about power politics

              “……It starts with a sacred text that gets branded as Divine and is ultimately utilized as a tool to brainwash & manipulate the masses…..”

              IF it was true it would not be “brainwashing” anyone, it would be letting them in on knowledge. But I suspect from the way you keep picking at the idea of the Bible what you are actually doing is wanting to undermine the POLITICS it involves.

              Thats fine….but its disingenuous to pretend thats not what your doing.

              It makes no logical sense to Drop the Bible and Keep the story…. it is a silly as Neo-Pagans LARPing that their religion is not just some made up game.

              The Bible is either True or its Not True, we cant make it ‘a little bit true’ and be logical.

              • Duck, did you even read my initial comment before commenting on it?

                Here’s an important excerpt you apparently missed…

                “…many in America…persecute Christians that embrace Christianity largely **because of what that religion has done with their sacred book (the Bible)** — elevating the book to a divine status, **de-rooting much of its content from their proper context & twisting it to tell a different story,** and then brainwashing the masses with their ideas…”

                Personally, I don’t have a problem with what the Bible says, I happen to appreciate it immensely.

            • carriew

              I came in when you were (erroneously) making the very specific claim that the Bible did not claim to be the word of God.

              As to your take ….basically its more politics.

              You are said that Christians are misunderstanding the Bible and getting persecuted for it ?

              Well, that is

              You making a theological judgment upon others understanding of religion …a religion that as I understand it YOU NO LONGER BELONG TO….. why should anyone IN that religion give two hoots for your theological opinions?

              Do you have special insight that those Christians dont have? If so what is it and where does it come from?

        • ejdoyle said: “All organized religions are based on man-made “gods” used for power and control over others. They strip humans of sovereign spiritual expression of thanks for the miracle of sentience to be replaced with rule books of fear from made up evils like satan, hell, demons, sin, etc.”

          I can see how organized religions have weaponized the myths of their particular religion (thinking specifically of Christianity because that is the religion I was raised in).

          However, I can also see the benefits in considering the contents of some of these myths with an objective & mature frame of mind, discerning that which is beneficial from that which is harmful and then internalizing that which is good to make us wiser & better equipped to navigate our life on this earth.

          In other words, while these myths may not be provable in their entirety, I don’t think it’s wise to throw out the baby with the bathwater.

          These stories certainly have their problems when it comes to proving the claims they make concerning their characters’ existence in real life and all the words & deeds supposedly said & done by them.

          However, if we can step back from the books that contain these stories — more like, if we can simply **step out of** the books into which we often insert ourselves (due to religious persuasion) — and hold the books in our hands and read them like we do any other book, acknowledging that they are creative works of man and potentially worthy in revealing nuggets of truth and gems of wisdom, I think we can become enriched & compelled to do greater things with our lives than what we might have been & done had we not done so.

          • The thing about that idea is that when you “step out” of belief and just take things as “useful” they don’t have any power….. no one is going to die for “useful” as CS Lewis shows in “abolition of man”

            • Duck, I didn’t say to step out of “belief”, I said to step out of the books. In saying that I meant, “step out of **the story of** the books”.

              These texts in composite tell a story. They tell a story about a Creator identified as “God” who embarks on a relationship with a man, named Abram, and his offspring.

              Promises are made by this “God” to that man & his offspring, and the books lay out a series of events that took place primarily related to that man & his offspring.

              This story starts in the Old Testament and carries forward into the New Testament, where the story ends with the culmination of what was said would take place within the generation of man at the time the NT texts were penned (in the 1st century). And thereby fulfills all the promises the God of that story made to Abram/Abraham & his seed.

              • So what you are saying is make it an oral rather then a written text?

                If so that makes no sense because oral history is inferior

              • Duck, I’m saying to not insert oneself *into* the text as a character *within* that story. But rather, read the story and take what you will from it, like you would any other book — as a reader or student of it.

      • Why does it upset people when you share the gospel?

        May I direct you to John 15:18 and following. “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.”

        And John 17:14+

        “14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

        And 2 Corinthians 4:3+

        “ 3But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.”

        “2 Timothy 3:1-9 – This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”


        1 Corinthians 1:23
        “But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;”

        We try to share the gospel because our savior said that if we love Him, to keep His commandments. Chiefly, to love Him and love our neighbors as ourselves. And if we love Him and want to be obedient in trying to love our neighbors, we will continue to pray and share our faith regardless of how we’re treated.

        So good job brother!

        • Thank You!
          I do understand why people get upset, I just want people like that to think about their response, and to see that trying to prove that God doesn’t exist simply shows that they aren’t as persuaded as they’re trying to make themselves believe.
          But 2 Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” sure describes people of our day.
          Amo 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. This also describes our day.

      • If the ‘choice’ is ours (free choice?), then we can decide to act in a manner that does no harm, or as little as is possible, or we can decide to do harm, little or lots… The choice really is ours and the ‘Power’ of ‘Evil’ (the devil?) or ‘good’ (Christ consciousness?) surely lies in how many of us make which choices?… Energy flows where attention goes. Think about it!
        I know it’s not apparently that simple, because so many have been conditioned to wear blinkers and not look left or right, so to speak, but even in a blinkered state of mind, the concept of good and evil exists to a certain extent, so even then, there is choice.

    • RE: “There is NO evidence of god, jesus, or satan beyond heartfelt personal testimony…”

      I understand the Bible identifies the Creator of the natural world we inhabit & the Source of all Life as “God” (or “the god” as translated from the Greek LXX), with the understanding that the Hebrew word for “god” comes from a noun that means “mighty/strong”.

      Then, the book lays out a perspective on who that “God” is and what He’s said & done after the Created works were completed in establishing the natural world we inhabit. And I can see this perspective (what the Bible portrays) being a myth and unprovable in its entirety.

      However, I don’t believe the idea of their being a Creator of the natural world we inhabit and a Source of all life who can be deemed as “God” in the sense of being powerful/mighty is unprovable. The evidence is all around us, to include our own very being.

      There is an origin to this world and to its living inhabitants, which evidently is powerful/mighty to bring it all into being. The question is who/what is that origin? And that’s where the religions of man go to town in telling us their answers.

      • PLEASE, no more cult talk.
        The persistence of a myth doesn’t make it true.

        • ejdoyle,

          When you say “no more cult talk”, are you referring to my statement of there being an origin to this world & to its living inhabitants and/or referring to that origin as a Creator and a Source of all life? (I’m just trying to understand your view.)

    • Im curious…Did you really listen to the interview ?

  4. I’ve no doubt your head exploded , sir. My mouth exploded when I heard this just now!! Holy Shastabishat!!, if I may use poetic metaphor here.
    Go James Corbett, sir, go go go. Some amazing grace is with you sir. Your arrow hits true every time. This is so very needed in this time of illusions galore.
    Again, from a Franco-American to a Canadian, thank you and so well done.

  5. Mr. Corbett, I realized some years ago that schooling, as it is, trains us to basically, “solve problems”.

    So, it’s no surprise we spend our lives looking for problems to solve.

    We were made to “perform”, and “performance” is such a huge aspect at every level of this
    Society of the Spectacle.

    Wow, James. Society of Jesus.
    Reading is a balm and a salvation. IF the book is worth the paper it’s printed on. Not so much on these machines, tho.

    Please remember to mention and link to your Media Course. I’m wanting to go to it soon, myself. And excellent interview like this one will have people wanting to learn more.

  7. I’m hoping that “Star-link” will be the beginning of uncensored worldwide communication. Events can be covered live, at the source by many who have different perspectives.
    Out of this will come much more open discussion, followed by introspection, revelations, political solutions formed at the grass-roots, not by elites with hidden agendas.
    What could go wrong? Will superstition grow or diminish? Will we enter a new “Age of Reason”? Will space telescopes replace ICBMs? Will the world be free or unfree, ungoverned or governed, safe for thinkers or ruled by the superstitious? Will a “free market of ideas” open up or will propaganda dominate? Will a new era begin that will be hereafter know as “civilization”?

    • “…’m hoping that “Star-link” will be the beginning of uncensored worldwide communication….”

      StarLink is just the Internet being portable.

      The Internet is just pipes to pump information and content from one computer to the next computer.

      The guy who owns those pipe (Musk in the case of Starlink) will always have the option to monitor what goes thru them, slow their flow, or shut them off.

      I’ve just started “Cyberia”, a 90’s book about how the future was going to be open communication and empowered people. That was a pretty common idea (along with the psychedelic spiritualism trash) back then and its really not working out all that well. They had to give us the Open internet to get people onto it, but at the end of the day for every one person who gets MORE powerful 20 get LESS powerful.

      This fault is part of the design, and the only cure is to either limit use or build your own small networks (MESH and such). And then limit use….. 😉

      The “free market of ideas” is one of those ideas that sounds good but is actually fake. The ideas that get taken up do so because those with power or the Will to power make them take taken up.

      Much as I love the great diversity of ideas and resources I get from the Net I cant help but feel that the destruction of the minds of normal people make them unable to resist even the dumbest ideas that directly hurt them. I know that when I was a kid no one believed the newspapers or TV were truthful and looked around them for feedback in their real world lives. That real world feedback has been swamped by faked, cybernetic inputs which is why so many people are going crazy.

      Or demon possessed….. it could be that.

  8. HERE is a Clifford Stoll talk from 1996.

    While his writing is fun to read he’s quite funny to watch talking.

    He points out that the idea that “Knowledge is power” is NOT TRUE (Librarians know lots of stuff…yet have not power) while those with power often know very little.

    He points out many other things, seeing some of the issues in over use of computers and networking that actually happened in Bauerleins “Dumbest Generation” work on the Great En-Dumbening.

    Worth listening for an hour.

    • “…those in power often know very little.” I assume your mean “political power”. They know how to raise funds, campaign, sell an image. Once in, knowledge of how to keep, expand, power, and make money from politics without getting prosecuted, is called “politics as usual”. It’s easy to fool people who want to be fooled, e.g., who suffer from “The Most Dangerous Superstition” by Larken Rose.

      Some people set their life goal on gaining specific knowledge, specializing, in an area that most interests them. Is their success in leading the life that makes them happy “power”? Is it notable? Is it worth it? At the end of your life will you look back with regret and wish you had spent more time on gaining something you now have come to value, but once didn’t?

      My point is: “Ignorance is NOT bliss”, except for those who want to exploit you. Knowledge enlightens, protects us from those who prey others, e.g., politicians.

      • I agree that Ignorance is not bliss.

        I never said that it was.

        Let me ask you if you think that Epstein had a lot of knowledge when he was getting ripped off by those science geeks who promised him all kinds of miracles?

        Do you think the people pushing us into war with Iran and Russia (the actual people, not the politicians….only a retard thinks Biden knows anything and Trump is having his puppet strings attached right now) do you think THOSE people pushing us to war actually see the end game?

        No, most of them see short term gains, not where it will end up. Just like the jewish folks who pushed mass immigration and left wing causes did not forsee that jews would end up suffering for it. But then, jews have a habit of sawing off the branch on which they sit.

        Mr Corbett knows more then either of us….do you think he is highly powerful?

      • Yes, knowledge is power, as in : know the truth, which goes beyond analytical head knowledge, this kind brings an unstoppable power, it’s the inner strength that separates the mice from the men. Thanks
