01) The PewDiePipeline: how edgy humor leads to violence


“This video examines the Alt Right Pipeline and the Pyramid of Violence that leads from implicit bias to edgy humor to violence. CONTENT WARNINGS: This video contains: -Racist symbols and imagery -Racist rallies and hate speech (explicit slurs have been removed) -Discussion of the Charlottesville tragedy -Confrontations between racists and ethnic minorities/Native Americans”

I’ve paid virtually zero attention to pewdepie…Everything I’ve encountered of his, I’ve not been interested in…Granted, I’ve never gone searching for anything from him.

I didn’t even know he existed, until all this nonsense erupted about a year or so back.

For reasons which should be self explanatory…I hate and loath censorship…and consider it to be evil…even when applied to self identified racists…Censorship is just evil, period…even when it’s applied to people I aggressively disagree with.

…And I did not ask, nor elect, other people to decide for me…what viewpoints I am allowed to listen to and comprehend “from the horses own mouth”.

Still…this is the first time I’ve seen someone really break this issue down…the alleged “pewdepie nazi connection”.

It’s something to think about.

I’ve had the experience of unintentionally wandering into certain videos, and having my video recommendations turn into a curious direction…despite that these aren’t content that I have a history of watching.

What watching I do, is normally just to get a firm grasp on an issue, group…news story…

…I’ve found a handful of channels, which initially seemed interesting…but I ultimately weeded out of my subscriptions…I just got a bad feeling about the people running those channels…It felt more like personal intuition, than anything overt.

…Some of those names…I’m finding that they keep resurfacing in these types of videos today, which talk about this “racist pipeline”.

The Danger of Misrepresenting Communicators:

I’ve written about this in the past…

We shouldn’t be too eager to pigeon hole, those who are merely attempting to understand what others [yes, including modern nazis] are standing for.

Some of us still value the principles of open communication and clearly understanding others, above nearly all else.

…Some of us, from a lifetime of experience, have zero faith in those who would shut down open dialogue, and dictate [often in a biased, sometimes misleading way] “what those people have to say”.

I don’t look upon the self appointed gatekeepers of speech, as being any less of a threat than racists trying to start a race war.

01) Alan Watts Explains What Awakening Means


“As the New-Age con artists and gurus continue to get richer and gain more followers by mixing nonsense and woowoo with genuine spiritual teachings of the east, I think it’s important to keep the pure teachings alive.

In this clip Alan Watts explains what “Awakening” means, and no, it doesn’t have anything to do with saying Namaste or finding significance in seeing the clock when it’s 11:11 or thinking that the placement of planets in the solar system somehow affects your mood and personality…”

CA town offers free tiny house plans for legal backyard housing…

01) CA town offers free tiny house plans for legal backyard housing


“Looking for a local solution to the California housing shortage, Clovis city planners bypassed legalizing tiny houses on wheels for what they saw as a solution more attractive to homeowners: providing free fee-waived plans for backyard “cottage” homes. The three plan options are for homes 400-square-feet or less, and are available to homeowners with access to an alleyway (a prominent feature of Old Town Clovis). Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), AKA “granny flats” or in-law units, are legal in California, but Clovis Planning Director Dwight Kroll says the savings under their Backyard Cottage program are substantial. He estimates 9 to 10 thousand dollars for the plans, plus a few thousand more to have them approved by the building department. On top of this it can cost another $5000 for water and sewage connection fees (plan participants can avoid this by connecting the new units to existing services).

01) The Darwin Day Lecture 2017, with Lawrence Krauss – Cosmic Natural Selection


“Titled ‘Cosmic natural selection’, Professor Lawrence Krauss’s Darwin Day Lecture marked fifteen years of British Humanist Assocation (BHA) lectures commemorating the life and work of Charles Darwin, and was as per tradition chaired by BHA patron Professor Richard Dawkins. Krauss, the first physicist to give the Darwin Day Lecture, was a fitting choice because his work, much like Darwin’s, has helped us to uncover dramatic truths about our world, said Professor Dawkins: ‘Even more dramatically than Darwin, Lawrence Krauss has shown us that a universe can indeed spring from nothing.’”
