It is not easy to talk about morality, but neither is to talk about sanity.
What makes talking about either difficult is people’s propensity to fall for propaganda; their ignorance of the details of the matter at hand and their eagerness to join the lynch-mobs of virtue signaling. Continue reading →
Early into the war in the Ukraine I got into a few heated arguments. I was told by a relative that my views on the matter are “incomprehensible and unacceptable.” Our conversation ended in a shouting match. Not unlike the ones about Covid. The point of these discussions is always, somehow, about morality and the vehement emotions in support of that moral conviction.
Just like with all the Covid discussions, the views are polarized, moralized and emotionalized. The things that are missing from all of them are nuance, logic and knowledge on one side and often too much (bordering on speculation) on the other, making reasonable discussion practically impossible.
In the case of the Ukraine war, I tried to make the point that I also look at it in moral terms, that I am also outraged, that I also find the support of subversion, interference and outright intervention in the affairs of a sovereign nation “incomprehensible and unacceptable,” but I had a feeling that my points fell on deaf ears. So here I am, trying to summarize my views, my puzzlement, and the foundation of my moral outrage.
Because this is a question of morality indeed. Continue reading →
What on earth are they thinking???
The great reset is a dream for some, a globalist conspiracy to others.
For its promoters and the globalist left it is a great promise, for everybody else, it is a great threat.
For its proponents, it is a great plan of enlightened visionaries, for its opponents, it is a globalist conspiracy for our enslavement and exploitation.
Questioning the benevolence of its promoters or expressing any kind of concern about it is labeled a conspiracy theory.
If you agree with the agenda, then it is a wonderful plan, if you don’t, you will be told that it does not even exist. The only conspiracy around is your attempt to besmirch the benevolent efforts of well-meaning philanthropists who have nothing but your happiness on their mind. They want to take everything away from you, so that you won’t have to worry. “You will own nothing, and you will be happy” Continue reading →
I don’t think there can be any doubt about my position on, or what I think in general about the insanity of the last two years. The reason we still have to talk about it is the many conversations I had on the subject, all too often with the same disappointing outcome of no common ground. I tried to challenge the beliefs of my opponents by asking them to provide me with some falsifiability criteria so that we can bring the conversation beyond the perpetual restating of our positions. Continue reading →
In “The Foundation of Theories” I tried to make the point about the inevitability of what we are seeing around us. We somehow managed to push ourselves into a corner economically, politically, philosophically, culturally and maybe even civilizationally. I also made the point that being trapped in that corner created the fertile ground for the insanity we are experiencing for the past two years.
However, none of this apparent inevitability, none of the circumstances can excuse the despicable and often criminal behaviour of so many, nor lessen the virtue of those standing up against it.
It is time to take a look at the heroes, the villains, the dupes and the victims of this scamdemic. We’ll start with the villains and their web of colluding interests. Continue reading →
In the infant days of the internet, in the early 90s, when Bill Gates declared it to be of no interest to Microsoft, I got an idea for a book of a sort. It had two inspirations: Orson Welles’ radio play adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The War of the Worlds” and Nikos Kazantzakis’ “The Last Temptation of Christ”. I was very young when I read the Last temptation. The conversation where Jesus asks Judas to sacrifice his integrity and reputation so that he, Jesus, can fulfill his destiny made a lasting impression on me. Until about the mid eighties I also had some concerns about overpopulation and running out of planetary resources but I grew out of it by the nineties. I just had to properly digest the zeitgeist of the time. Continue reading →
Change is frightening. Especially to those in power.
Just as I was about to give a new title to this post, I watched the trailer of “Foundation” in which the quote above is spoken. While I am not a Psychohistorian, it is clear to me, that Western civilization is dying. Continue reading →
This will be a short post. Watch the video of James Lankford’s speech on the Senate floor.
Seriously. Watch it now, before you continue reading….
It is a good speech; clear and to the point. Or is it…? Continue reading →
Dear Mr. President,
After pouring my frustration out on you in my last letter, I am writing this to say what, in my humble opinion, you could and should do to minimize the damage your loss of the presidency is doing to your supporters, to the America you love and to the rest of us who looked at the USA as a beacon of free market economies, Western civilization and the rule of law.

Dear Mr. President,
As a Canadian, I have no standing in the case between you and your people. Still, I believe I have a stake in the fate of the United States which is inextricably linked to the fate of Western civilization. I am part of that civilization which was put into mortal danger by the mistakes that led to the loss of your office.

A few years ago, I wrote two posts about Jews and Muslims. The points I was trying to make in them was that you don’t have to like the Jews to be on their side and you don’t have to hate the Muslims to condemn their wrongdoings.
I feel much the same way about Donald Trump and the left. Continue reading →
I was asked in a conversation what is my take on the events of 2021/01/6
“Still on the Trump Train? Not concerned about the integrity of democratic system at all?”
I answered: I don’t know what it means to be “on the Trump train.”
I also don’t know what do you mean when you say “not being concerned about the integrity of the democratic system at all”
This whole past month was about the integrity of the democratic system which rests upon the integrity of elections. I am more concerned about it than ever. I did not know that I was on the Trump Train. I don’t even know what that means. Continue reading →
I got into a few interesting conversations recently about Donald Trump and the election mess the US is dealing with. What connects them, is the visceral hatred, disgust or anger about this one person. The reaction to his persona, his demeanor, his behaviour, his mannerism. Their viscerally negative reaction is beyond any reason. As if they were possessed by a demon preventing them from acting rationally. Some even found a name for this condition: Trump Derangement Syndrome. Continue reading →
How did we get from MLK to Biden? From the dream of equality to the proclamation that unless you submit yourself to the ideological masters of the vote-plantation, your identity is irrelevant? How did the democrats pull it off?
Like they do with everything else. Lies and manipulation, threats and bribery, scaring voters with boogeymen and offering socialism as the solution. Continue reading →
Someone sent me a joke:
Wife: Did I get fat during quarantine?
Husband: You were never really skinny!
Time of death: 11:47 pm, 4/25/20
Cause of death: Coronavirus
It is a good one. A perfect communist joke. Making fun of something that cannot be said. Naming what cannot be named. Continue reading →
