“On Jan. 6, Landon Mitchell bragged to a Facebook friend that he “breached the Capitol” and was “one of the very first in” when a pro-Trump mob stormed the halls of Congress. He appeared in video on the floor of the U.S. Senate, went through a senator’s desk and took to the dais, where he posed next to the so-called QAnon Shaman.

The Most Horrifying Science Fiction Series of All – The Three-Body Problem Series…


October
….

Date: October 22, 2021

“Recently I had the pleasure of reading what is likely the most terrifying science fiction book series I’ve ever read. I’ve always enjoyed scary stories. As a kid, I read anthologies like goosebumps or scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. But I didn’t know true fear until I encountered the works of Stephen King, and H.P. Lovecraft in my teenage years. Lovecraft’s works opened up such terrifying vistas of thought that I would while reading them become transfixed and filled with ultimate existential dread. The cosmic terrors he wrote about in his stories struck me as somehow realer than the monsters and ghost of goosebumps and that is probably because in truth Lovecraft, being the flawed man he was, was expressing a very simple fear, fear of the unknown. And what is more unknown than the blackness of space. I must admit that not since my early teenage years have I felt such poignant terror while reading as I did when first encountering the work of Lovecraft. That Is until I read the Remembrance of Earth’s past trilogy.

There are three books in this series, The Three-Body Problem, The Dark Forest, and Deaths End, there is also an additional book not written by Cixin Liu himself, called Redemption of Time. The first books in the series The Three-Body Problems start off as a mystery. As the story unfolds it starts to feel as though we are reading the unfolding of some grand conspiracy, a conspiracy written into the fabric of the universe itself. Early on in the story, you find out that scientists around the world have been killing themselves. A note left behind by one of the late scientists, Yang Dong ominously added to the mysteries, saying only:

All the evidence points to a single conclusion: Physics has never existed, and will never exist. I know what I’m doing is irresponsible. But I have no choice.

We base so much of our own perception of what we consider to be reality on what we can observe. We look upon the universe as it is and extrapolate from that point. But what if we will never be able to know the truth about the universe. What if the universal constants are not constant. What if the laws of physics are not laws, what if reality isn’t real. Before we get any further into the video I have to give a spoiler warning. If you have not read the series I highly recommend you stop this video and do so. If you’ve read the series, or just don’t care about spoilers then continue forth. Now we won’t be getting into all of the details of the series, I’ll be giving context to why exactly I think this series is so unnerving.

The Battle Over Free Speech: Are Trigger Warnings, Safe Spaces & No-Platforming Harming Young Minds?…

….

Date: October 21, 2021

01) LINK


“Many would argue that these are the fundamental goals of a good education. So why has Cambridge University taken to warning its students that the sexual violence in Titus Andronicus might be traumatic for them? Why are other universities in America and increasingly in Britain introducing measures to protect students from speech and texts they might find harmful? Safe spaces, trigger warnings and no-platforming are now campus buzzwords – and they’re all designed to limit free speech and the exchange of ideas. As celebrated social psychologist Jonathan Haidt argues in his book ‘The Coddling of the American Mind’, university students are increasingly retreating from ideas they fear may damage their mental health, and presenting themselves as fragile and in need of protection from any viewpoint that might make them feel unsafe.The culture of safety, as Haidt calls it, may be well intentioned, but it is hampering the development of young people and leaving them unprepared for adult life, with devastating consequences for them, for the companies that will soon hire them, and for society at large.

That, Haidt’s critics argue, is an infuriating misinterpretation of initiatives designed to help students. Far from wanting to shut down free speech and debate, what really concerns the advocates of these new measures is the equal right to speech in a public forum where the voices of the historically marginalised are given the same weight as those of more privileged groups. Warnings to students that what they’re about to read or hear might be disturbing are not an attempt to censor classic literature, but a call for consideration and sensitivity. Safe spaces aren’t cotton-wool wrapped echo chambers, but places where minority groups and people who have suffered trauma can share their experiences without fear of hostility.

In November 2018, Haidt came to the Intelligence Squared stage to discuss and debate these ideas. Joining him were the former chief rabbi Jonathan Sacks, who believes that educating young people through debate and argument helps foster robustness, author and activist Eleanor Penny, and sociologist Kehinde Andrews, one of the UK’s leading thinkers on race and the history of racism.”

If I were there and had been given the chance to voice a thought…I would have said on the microphone…that what has been forming is dangerous…because these people who aggressively refuse to confront the issues of “the other”…who aggressively fight to be divorced and separate from people they “fear” or dislike…Those people are human, too…and they are absolutely susceptible to stereotypical thinking…to prejudice…to hate…to the demonization of others…to abusing other minorities, who are the culturally trendy minorities to be abusing…

…And these are the people being trained, to be future leaders and decision makers…social power holders, who will decide the fate of others…

It is everybody’s business, that dominating censorship is being normalized among the higher education classes…because, this is a looming threat to anyone who finds themselves outside of popular society.

This movement with it’s mindset, does devastate other minorities who aren’t in “the in crowd”.

They don’t keep all of this on the university campuses…They export it, into the wider culture, it’s institutions and businesses.

You’re a fool, if you think all minorities are benefiting from this…or that the end product of all this speech policing, is actually healthy for minorities or society at large.

It causes a lot of anger and resentment, and boiling tensions…because people are being gagged by it…as are the issues and initiatives they hold dearest to themselves.

And Less Politically Correct:

The hyper intent to take offense [even where none was given], is utter bullshit…The refusal to see and recognize others as good humans who also have needs is, likewise, bullshit.

The expectation that we [who’ve busted our asses for decades, who are largely broken down and used up from it] are supposed to be the ones who jump through hoops, carrying the burden that is “you”, just because you’ve entered the mix of our culture and work force with all your anticipated special entitlements [which you’ve never earned], is complete bullshit…We are not your fucking doormats…We’ve already weathered more than our fair share of abuse, stress and thankless sprinting on the rat wheel.

I’ve been roped into taking the shifts of well more than one millennial/zed, who thought they could just call off their own shift, anytime they please…and leave the rest of our small staff scrambling to fill the hours on very short notice…generally, the day of…because they’re apparently incapable of asking to trade in advance.

…I about fell over, when one of them explained to me they “needed a mental health day”…so, they decided that they wasn’t coming in…and they got pissed off, acting like they’d been done wrong, because the manager got fed up with this behavior and fired them.

It’s like the concepts that they work with other people, who they also need to respect the needs of, plus they signed an agreement on terms for earning a paycheck, are both something they are inexplicably oblivious to.

…I’ve seen the fruits of this grotesque sense of extreme fragility and entitlement…and the above is nowhere near the worst case I’ve experienced.

I have a very low opinion of that sort of work ethic, self entitlement, grandiose sense of superiority, and social inconsideration.

On top of everything else…a lot of them behave like absolute turds, online.


Forgive me for going there, in the end…It wasn’t what I first intended…but, it feels like something related, that belongs here…and was nagging at me, when thinking about these issues…It’s just insane how many of them think “they just don’t have too”…and “everybody else has to pick up their slack”…or go without, just to dance around them.

I’m allowing my own frustrations to bubble to the surface, here…and it’s probably degrading the post…

I’m just so sick and tired of these young, manipulative pricks…who imagine they’ve arrived on the scene to “set the rest of us wrong people straight”…

…When in reality, they are absolutely nothing other than the same old social repression and abuse, that so many of us have spent our lives fighting against.

They’re just another wave, of the same old fucked up bullshit…always there, to drag us down and halt actual good things from happening.
