Zach Sweers…

…I had a sneaking suspicion while listening to this news report, that I’d probably seen this guys YouTube channel…and I might have even intended on featuring his content, in this post series…

…Sure enough, the absence of videos and the presence of two other videos on this channel [Anxiety War], only serves to back up my suspicion.

It’s a shame this guy’s videos are down, because he is worthy of a lot of scrutiny…And they displayed tactics and mindsets, which I think would have been useful for most MAPs to see and comprehend.

I’m glad to see he is being sued [apparently, twice over], and that the local cops have severed ties with him. This sort of thing needs to take place…even if I am a bit annoyed, at how it’s interfered with intent to feature this guy, and his videos.

The contents of his videos consisted of lying to people online, and then filming the meetings…In the last instance, he took someone along with him who had a hand gun on his person.

A few notes:

a) “Evidence is evidence”…The local cops were accepting Zach’s videos, as evidence in cases against people. It’s important to keep in mind, that while cops might be held to a certain standard of conduct…that doesn’t mean private citizens also are.

b) You have every right to sue, anyone who does this sort of thing to you.

c) You should not meet “underage” people online, and decide to meet up for sex…You should never share pictures of yourself, nor live video, nor voice recording, with such people.

d) If you make the above mistake, and show up…do not talk to these people about anything, at all…Take something along with you, which fits the environment…even if that is only reading material, or something to eat…For example…taking binoculars to a park, can substantiate that you are only there bird watching…So, do go bird watching, and if one of these bozos approaches you…tell them to leave you alone.

e) Never go alone, if possible…

f) Don’t presume anyone is on the level with you. A lot of people are making sport of it, getting MAPs into vulnerable and compromising situations.

The philosophy, goals and future of this channel

I’M BEING SUED by a guy I reported

Yes, he has a certain mindset and ideology…and he slants it in a certain way…but he’s obviously an oblivious amateur…After what I’ve witnessed on his videos, I have little sympathy for him.

He got himself into trouble with his recklessness, which was entirely predictable…and now he is e-begging for money.

Zach refused to accept this optimal chance, to set the record correct on Stateside…Why?

He complains about the media misrepresenting him, but fails to respond to a major media network?

Zach is quite the propagandist…and he’s embroiled himself deep, in stoking the hatred against MAPs…It’s starting to cave in on him, and…well…Now we see what he is truthfully made of, as he collapses and retreats.

There is something important in this…as a lot of the people who target, smear and attack MAPs, are none to well equipped to deal with it, when the focus starts getting directed back on themselves.

As a community…we don’t organize and fight back nearly as vigorously, as we need to be doing.

Bridge Magazine’s new book is first comprehensive telling of Flint water crisis…

01) Bridge Magazine’s new book is first comprehensive telling of Flint water crisis

“Michigan Radio and countless other local and national news outlets have reported various aspects of the crisis, from how it unfolded to how the crisis will affect the city’s children as they grow into adults. And that reporting will continue into the foreseeable future, since Flint water is still not safe to drink, unfiltered.

The Center for Michigan’s Bridge Magazine has now published a book that aims to bring that story — at least what we know now — together in one place. The book is called Poison on Tap: How Government Failed Flint, and the Heroes Who Fought Back.”

Palestinians: What do you think of atheists?…

01) Palestinians: What do you think of atheists?


Notice how in most instances within this video, the possibility that there is no god, isn’t even considered a valid conclusion…

…It’s like…”keep searching, until you arrive at our conclusion…and don’t stop, until you do”…

…And there was one, lone guy…who thought it was no big deal, if you’re an atheist.

I have no doubt that there are others like him…But the fact that he was representing a rare viewpoint, is truly disturbing.

God: “The Painted Picture Argument” (Narrated)…


ISDLogo
….

Date: June 27, 2016

This selection from “In Self Defense: The Life and Times of An Atheist BoyLover…Memoirs and Ethos”, has been narrated by Rocco White. Please enjoy the listen, or read along if you like…or need to.


Note: This is more of a diversionary tactic of confusion, than a true argument.

This is an old Ray Comfort tactic [maybe he got it from someone else?], where in he equates the cognition behind one form of creativity, with a “need” for cognition behind all naturally occurring order.

One critical problem with this assertion, is that painting is an established art and discipline, which we can observe and see a cognitive mind behind…It’s an extremely well established occurrence.

…The formation of planets, stars, solar systems, etc…on the other hand, are not something we have ever had the opportunity to observe, in their entire process…

Frankly…we don’t know enough about that process, and till this day…we’ve not identified any cognition behind it. We’ve never established that a cognition is even required, for a planet or star to form…And given the sheer vastness of the universe…randomness is entirely plausible…In fact, it seems to be pointed towards and supported.

Given an essentially unlimited amount of chances…we will eventually find things happening, we don’t necessarily expect to happen.

Concluding that a cognition must be there, behind everything, is simply not justified…It is not substantiated…It’s merely asserted, by some people…who cannot substantiate it.

The physical elements which make up everything, have come together to produce earth…But, they’ve also mixed to form entire solar systems, which are expected to be desolate…because they are so hostile towards supporting life, as we know it to exist.

Most of what is out there, is overwhelmingly a treacherous wasteland…and it points towards a lack of any real thought put into it.

It’s far more justified to conclude, that we humans are a curious accident…than to believe that some cognitive creature [we cannot even establish the existence of] decided to invent us.

It makes no sense, to think otherwise…if you care at all, about what studies and research are showing us.

‘Regression Therapy’ Isn’t Real, but Hollywood Keeps the Myth Alive…


Date: June 26, 2016

01) “Regression Therapy” Isn’t Real, but Hollywood Keeps the Myth Alive

“The problem is that there is no empirical evidence to support such notions, certainly not in the way that Freud originally conceptualized them. As far as the scientific community is concerned, there is no secret repression vault, so there cannot be a secret technique to unlock it, thus eliminating the possibility of regression as a feasible therapeutic technique.

There is also a tremendous problem with assuming that there is such a hidden emotional vault […] The problem is that our expectations tend to influence their behavior. If we assume that a hidden, repressed memory exists, we start to hunt for it.

If psychoanalytic therapists and patients go into a therapy session looking for the atrocities that ‘must’ be there, they can quite easily generate false memories in the process. The results can include families fractured by false accusations, and lawsuits based on ill-informed therapy that generated a memory of something terrible that never actually happened.” – Julia Shaw

The Intelligent Anti-Establishment Candidate Would Have Been Bernie Sanders…

01) Clinton Delegate Beats Sanders Supporter With Cane (VIDEO)


We cant blame “the democrats”, for one ornery old goat who needs to be put out to pasture…But the way Sanders supporters had their microphones shut off on them?…That speaks volumes, and just continues showing us what contempt is held towards people who can see, “business as usual” is killing our country.

The people who are driving this country into it’s grave, are still in control.

As an extra slap in the face…they actually think that they will get our vote for their establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton…a politician who models, just exactly the sort of corruption the Bernie Sanders movement arose and swelled to depose.

They want us to shut up and hand them our vote…They do not represent us…They wont stand by us, nor fight for us…They’ll just keep advancing a path, which is hurting us all [except the super wealthy minority].

You know what is so enraging about all of this?…

…Bernie Sanders is the only genuine, anti-establishment alternative…

…Yet, because of a myriad of underhanded tactics, he has been pushed out of the race…And now, the only “anti-establishment” candidate left, is Donald Trump…

We’ve been robbed of our true anti-establishment choice…and given Donald Trump, as the token candidate…to make Hillary look “good” by comparison, in her scripted “destiny” to be shoehorned into the U.S. presidency…

That is the way it is being played on us.

…And they think we are going to flock to Hillary, in order to stop Donald Trump…and that this is all the motivation they need to give us?…Beyond that, it’s all middle fingers?

I’m just about prepared to vote for Donald Trump, just to spite the democratic party…in hopes of derailing the Clinton coup…Let them take their grand plan of making history, and shove it back up their butts…They are the last people on this planet, who deserve the accomplishment or the accolades…The way they would have accomplished it, is just despicable.

…It’s time to snatch it from their jaws.

I do not agree with Bernie Sanders, that Hillary must be voted for in order to keep Trump out of the white house…The Hillary people are already snubbing the Bernie people…The democratic party, is not the place where we are going to get anywhere…

I don’t know if Bernie made a mistake in becoming a democrat, and using their party to attempt becoming U.S. president…But I do think he is making a mistake, in bowing out and not jumping to a third party for it’s nomination.

I think he is making a major mistake, by supporting Hillary…someone who embodies, all that is wrong with politics in the U.S…someone who is opposed, to nearly all of the vital issues Bernie stands for. Bernie is becoming subordinate, because he thinks Trump would be a disaster…

…Well…Yes…Trump would be a disaster, and a shock to the system…

…We need a serious shake up, and a shock to the system in U.S. politics…right now…

…The establishment wants to snatch away our viable candidate [Bernie Sanders], and leave us with Donald Trump?…You want to corner us, by leaving us with an “anti-establishment” candidate so outrageous?…

…Do you really want to play chicken with our political system, like this?…

Very well…

…Unless I find some extremely compelling third party candidate, who is doing what Bernie should be doing right now…then I am going to vote for the dancing clown of wall street [Donald Trump], solely to spite Hillary and her sheep…in hopes of making certain, that she never becomes U.S. president.

You want to treat us like this?…Fuck You!…Your attitude, your self entitlement and your platform, are all rotten to the core…

…There needs to be a serious house cleaning in U.S. politics…and all of the Hillary people [amongst so many others], need to be gone.

On Being: Pauline Boss – The Myth of Closure…


Date: June 26, 2016

01) On Being: Pauline Boss – The Myth of Closure

02) Direct Download [MP3]

“There is no such thing as closure. Family therapist Pauline Boss says that the idea of closure in fact leads us astray — it’s a myth we need to put aside, like the idea we’ve accepted that grief has five linear stages and we come out the other side done with it. She coined the term “ambiguous loss,” creating a new field in family therapy and psychology. And she has wisdom for the complicated griefs and losses in all of our lives and in how we best approach the losses of others — including those very much in our public midst right now.”

I’ve often thought of “closure” as cliché and conditioning. Just another elusive ideal.

To my mind…it’s more useful fighting injustice, while striving to come to terms with your loss…than it is to chase after “closure”.

When damage is done…there is no point, when it is undone…It doesn’t just stop…You cant always put it behind you.
