01) The Rise of Populism and the Backlash Against the Elites, with Nick Clegg and Jonathan Haidt


“Filmed at the Emmanuel Centre in London on 21st November 2016.

What is going on in the Western democracies? From Britain’s vote for Brexit, to Donald Trump’s election victory in America and the growth of populist movements across Europe, voters are expressing their dissatisfaction with the status quo. Economic anxieties go some way to explain the phenomenon, but as with the Brexit decision, people are voting in ways that seem – at least to their critics – likely to harm their own material interests just to give the establishment a bloody nose. In this special Intelligence Squared event, renowned American social psychologist Jonathan Haidt and politician Nick Clegg will examine the complex web of social, moral and political concerns that are driving the unrest. How can we explain the new illiberalism that is growing on both left and right, as authoritarian trends spread across campuses throughout the Anglosphere (the no-platforming of speakers being a typical example)? How should we understand the new ‘culture war’ emerging in Britain, America and elsewhere between the ‘globalists’ and ‘nationalists’?

As deputy prime minister during the Coalition government, Clegg witnessed the upheaval in British politics from the inside. Haidt, author of the acclaimed bestseller The Righteous Mind, has long been studying the moral and cultural drives that divide people into different political camps.”

An MA-TV Intermission…

Two things…

1) I’m going to be reposting a number of MAP made videos, to place them directly in this series…and probably a few movies, also. Not a lot, but a dozen or so.

2) I’ve had an active, openly MAP channel on YouTube in the past…So, I know a good bit about the BS you get subjected too…and that it can be a very perilous project.

It’s particularly hard, when you start to advocate changes in the way people think about social fundamentals…and how we think about taboo issues…and saying things, “you’re not supposed to say”…

…It’s even more of a rocky road, when you start using copyrighted material in your videos…There are any number of angles people come up with to attack your channel.

Consequentially…it often seems like only the most vague [or least seen] content, ever stays up any duration of time…Media with the most substantive messages that need to be communicated, often has the hardest time.

On that note…I’d like to suggest that MAPs interested in creating media, maybe focus on broader life issues…or personal creativity…If you have some talent…help create some MAP culture.

We need to start thinking outside of the box…especially on media websites like YouTube.

We are presently in the shadow of an active MAP YouTube account, that has recently deleted all of their videos…Why?…Who knows…But it stinks keeping track of a MAP account and featuring their videos here, just to have a substantial fraction of MA-TV rendered useless, because they’ve abruptly shut down their channel and deleted their videos.

It’s bad enough having to contend with YouTube being a cunt towards MAPs, and terminating their accounts…but MAPs willingly doing it on their own?

I would really ask, that MAPs not do this…We don’t have enough active voices out here, as it is.


It’s not my place to tell any of you what to do in your projects, or what to do with your content…So, don’t take any of that the wrong way.

I’m still overjoyed to see MAPs creating media content…And I’m always on the lookout, for new MAP channels. If you know of any, drop me a message…You can click on the contact page.

I’d ultimately love to get back into creating media, myself…I mean, I still do on occasion, but it’s mostly my holiday albums…I still hold onto broader ambitions.

In spirit…I’m right there with you guys, who are putting yourselves out there on the media front.

…This is primarily why I like to feature the creative content of other MAPs.

Chatango’s Attacker is Getting His Just Deserts…


Date: December 19, 2016

01) FBI Arrests Customer of Xtreme Stresser DDoS-for-Hire Service

“The FBI arrested this past week Sean Krishanmakoto Sharma, 26, from La Canada, California, for launching DDoS attacks against Chatango, an online chat service.

According to court documents, Sharma, who is a USC graduate, purchased DDoS firepower from Xtreme Stresser, an online DDoS-for-hire service.

He used this service to attack Chatango and brought down the company’s services on different occasions for a two-month period, between November 6, 2014 and January 20, 2015.”

I used to use Chatango, until the DDoS attacks started.

After Google bought and killed Meebo, Chatango was the only thing I could find, that was reasonably similar…

…Then that idiot forced me into a third long search, to find another service I could find acceptable.

It’s good to see he is getting his just deserts, for interrupting my flow and wasting my time.

01) Government child sex abuse inquiry to interview paedophiles as victims hit out at ‘insulting’ decision

“The review states: “In addition we will carry out qualitative research with convicted sexual offenders to understand how child sexual exploitation networks are formed and sustained.”

But victims’s groups said it was outrageous that paedophiles would be ‘consulted’ by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) and said it was evidence that Prof Jay, an eminent social worker, was attempting to ‘theorise’ crimes committed over decades by predatory abusers.

Raymond Stevenson, founder of the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association, who was the victim of abuse in a children’s home in south London, said: “This is pathetic. You will not learn anything from speaking to paedophiles. They just lie anyway. It is a waste of public money.”

His group withdrew support from the IICSA over concerns about Prof jay and the length of time the inquiry has been taking. Andi Lavery, who runs White Flowers Alba, a group of victims abused in the Catholic Church, said: “Interviewing paedophiles is wrong. It is demeaning. It is turning this into an experiment and it makes us survivors feel like laboratory rats. I am not being treated like a human being by Jay. They are using us as research.”

This article really underscores not only the dangers, but the backward thinking, of fanaticism in “victims rights” groups.

Truth be told…these interviews are likely to be far more insulting and dehumanizing to the pedophiles taking part in them…They are the ones being dissected…

…And it’s all being done, for the benefit of “stopping abuse” within a certain social narrative…A narrative which ruptures it’s own spine, bending over backwards to cater to these endlessly complaining “victims rights” groups.

These groups do not have the right to strip other people of their voice, nor of their human rights…Yet, given the current trends…you’d think this ruthless goal was part of their very own charters.

There is an old and famous quote, which goes like this…

“He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

…And these kinds of “victims groups”, have become an embodiment of this quote…They’ve become the aggression and abuse they claim to hate.

Condemning research done with their interests, and alleged end goals, in mind?…What better example of disingenuousness could they offer the world?

This tantrum of theirs is total absurdity.
