Hey guys, just in case you were still managing to stay nightmare free despite everything here's a little something I saw today

Boston Dynamics unveils 'nightmare-inducing' hybrid robot
Meet Handle, the two-wheeled, four-legged creation from the Google-owned robotics firm that even company founder Marc Raibert says is frightening
The footage of Handle had previously leaked at a presentation from Boston Dynamics founder Marc Raibert to investors, when even Raibert described it as a “nightmare-inducing robot”.

Google’s parent company Alphabet is reportedly looking to offload Boston Dynamics, following tensions within the company about its subsidiary’s fit within the wider corporate culture. After a previous robotics video was posted to YouTube, Google communications staff sought to distance the company from the hardware, according to emails leaked to Bloomberg News, citing the feeling that such technology could be “terrifying”.

You know, if we'd been having this conversation last year I would have totally agreed with you. In my wilful liberal naivete I don't think I had ever really though that the purchasing, lock stock and barrel, of a modern western democracy was actually a possible outcome of, well anything really. My political gamut ran from get elected and run with the current system to overthrow this system it sucks lets try to get it right next time. Being "Owned" in a literal monetary sense never actually occurred to me as being a thing which might happen. I kind of thought that when it came to politics the aim was to win the game not to buy the casino.

So from where I'm currently looking:-
Sure, someday we might get to a point where corporate armies enact company policy despite the legality of doing so, but more likely is that they will just make it legal in the first place by influencing "legitimate" policy and removing the bureaucratic obstacles.
you have got your tenses wrong

vex, you seem to be forgetting that this is the tRump century. Your ideas about legitimate power lying with government sound so quaintly old-fashioned, like that Victorians covering up piano legs in the interests of modesty; which is another fake fact. Government power, in what for the moment are still nominally free democracies, will only obtain until someone comes along with the will, guile and cash to stage a buy out. Read some Hobbes, try the Leviathan, you can see the thought processes behind the development of our modern beliefs about power. Power in its essence is neither legitimate nor illegitimate it is merely wielded.
Just in case you didn't want to sleep comfortably yu might try this piece too,

also Nigel is right re. the order/disorder thingy. Discordians have spent years mulling over this shit. Who knew we would end up on the white hot edge of political thinking?

R-Snowflake, please tell me that is not a misprint

It is not.  Allen has also stated that church should be compulsory.
Wow,  :eek: do you think she fell out of a timeslip from Plimoth Plantation? [Before it became a tourist attraction, of course]

Claiming people are being paid to riot, Republican state senators voted Wednesday to give police new power to arrest anyone who is involved in a peaceful demonstration that may turn bad — even before anything actually happened.
SB1142 expands the state’s racketeering laws, now aimed at organized crime, to also include rioting. And it redefines what constitutes rioting to include actions that result in damage to the property of others.
Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, said the new criminal laws are necessary.
“I have been heartsick with what’s been going on in our country, what young people are being encouraged to do,’’ she said.
She agreed with Quezada that there already are laws that cover overt acts. But Allen said they don’t work.
“If they get thrown in jail, somebody pays to get them out,’’ she said. “There has to be something to deter them from that.’’ 

R-Snowflake, please tell me that is not a misprint

President Donald Trump Idiot should be given a chance to prove himself, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe says.
He went on to express his support for Mr Trump's America-first policy, saying "America for WHITE  Americans" and "Zimbabwe for BLACK Zimbabweans".

Today the mother of parliaments debated a petition from one and a half million British subjects who want to stop the orange ranger from being offered a state visit, because it will be a horrible embarrassment to her majesty. While the House was debating this some news broke which should make a difference to how the question is viewed.
Muslim teacher 'denied entry to US' on school trip From the section South West Wales

There was also a little baby petition with very very small hands signed by 300,000 people who want Rump to come. I would like to think that they want an opportunity to heckle and boo him but that might just be wishful thinking on my part.

Also This happened on the 16th; I mean haven't the US courts nixed this shit temporarily? FFS America, a British teacher? WTF?

TWJ, you better learn to be aware of context before you go back into education or you are just going to be wasting your time and a load of public money. FWIW I had no idea who the author is either. I do now.  To be honest I personally don't think that understanding about Ellis' life is at all important to understanding why you are apparently in a minority of one over your overreaction to what he said.

That is because you did not react to what he actually said. That you are still making weird disgruntled noises about the reaction that your outburst garnered means that you still haven't heard what Ellis was actually saying.
I'm going to insert two things into the original text so that you can see what everybody else is reading, as opposed to the anti-MLK diss that you seem to be seeing

"Martin Luther King once said "the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice" THEREFORE ON THIS POINT AND  THIS POINT ALONE I SAY THAT Martin Luther King was full of shit BECAUSE There is no moral universe."

The point is about the existence of a moral universe.

EIR....oh dear.  Not even going to read beyond that.

By the way, the fashionable way of saying crypto-Jew nowadays is Cultural Marxist.  I mean, I suspect a lot of people who use the term may not overtly realise that, but...yeah.  Also, perhaps ironically, a term coined by the owner of Executive Intelligence Review, aka Lyndon LaRouche.

You know I feel like I'm permanently on the verge of hysteria of late. It is strangely liberating and I'm finding that I can read all sorts of unbelievable dross and yet still find the mirth in the horror. Indeed it seems true to say that nonsense as salvation has something going for it. I never really got that before so I guess I should thank Gove and Boris and Ancient Orange for that, if nothing else.
also I have been trying to get a handle on Cultural Marxism for several months. I haven't really got much beyond it being a generic insult meaning that Your politics are inferior to Mine
