A Philosophical Page from my Blog

via Thoughts

Just for interest sake.  It starts with:

Why won’t the scientists openly debate this issue as a forum? Arguing and denying via the press and internet is not scientific debate, it is a debacle. Certainly not scientific, by any stretch of the imagination. (My thought, naturally re “AGW”).
 Not only did the government of Japan take more than two years to address the problem and collude on covering it up, they gave the name of the whistleblower to TEPCO.  (Re Fukushima, culpability).

Reality for one is usually different to that for another. However true reality can only be seen if one steps back from it.  (TGRule)

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds” – Samuel Adams

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” –Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.   – Voltaire

To believe the mainstream media is to risk ever knowing the truth about the real world. To believe government, (any government), issued information without considering their agenda(s), is to risk being brainwashed.  (TGRule)
And that is the way of science. Opinions don’t matter, certificates, awards, and accolades don’t matter. Only the provable evidence matters.  WUWT
{Quote: All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. { Galileo Galilei }}. It follows that having been discovered, they should not then be hidden! (KMc, TGRule)
Having just posted a philosophical treatise on truth and deception ( Psychopath Vs. Empath: The War Between Truth And Deception), it seems an appropriate location to put the whole article on record, rather than include it all in the post. It relates so closely and so deeply to the psyche(?) of this website, it must be included.
“The supreme mystery of despotism, its prop and stay, is to keep men in a state of deception, and cloak the fear by which they must be held in check, so that they will fight for their servitude as if for salvation.”– Baruch Spinoza

Are you fighting for your servitude as if for your salvation? Then you have been well-deceived. You have been sheeple-compromised. Your thoughts are not your own. Your actions are not your own. You are in all ways a conditioned puppet who is under the delusion that it is free, and the psychopaths of the world are your uncompromising puppet masters. The questions you need to be asking yourself are these: “Am I willing to do what it takes to become free? Am I ready for the uncomfortableness of undeceiving myself? Would I rather be slapped by the truth or kissed with a lie? Am I willing to sacrifice my comfortable lie for the uncomfortable truth? Am I strong enough to fall from the “grace” of my delusion onto the hard and unforgiving ground of truth? And most of all: do I have the courage to disobey?”

  3. Reblogged this on The GOLDEN RULE and commented:

    An appropriate time to bring this into view again.
    It’s a bit jumbled but says a great deal about human behaviour and responses to losses of freedom.

    The quotes by Voltaire and Spinoza are quite apropos.

    • Yes indeed. Larry.
      I find it amazing that hundreds of years ago, so much ‘philosophy’ was ‘born’ and ‘published’.
      Not impossible for the average person to understand yet we have to find it ourselves. If any of it is revealed in our education systems, it seems to be washed away by modern materialism and personal indulgences.
      Apparently not something in our genes?
      Ta for your interest and comments. We have a good rapport!
