The best evidence I've heard - mainly due to some potential amount of verifiability - is that china restricted air travel from wuhan to other parts of china but not the rest of the world.  This seems to be a good indicator of early knowledge of something bad and intent to cause harm to the rest of the world.  Not that there's anything I can do about it. . .

I like to use facebook to make my family uncomfortable and wrestle qith whether they want to unfriend me or not.  I find it's best to only post things that people can't be sure if you're serious or not

I don't mean to jack up your thread, and I apologize if you think that's what I'm trying to do.  as a show of good will, anything that I may add later, I will do so by editing this post instead of creating a new one.  that should help preserve the "flow"

we're obviously coming from different places (reality tunnels and what not) here, too.

I don't have much hope for any sort of success by any definition of the word in this arena, but it's fun to think about.

With that said, I was reading where you were writing about Fear being used to dominate.  That certainly should come as no surprise.  The purpose of a power structure presumably is control.  I guess I have 2 take-aways.  My apologies for not having organized my thoughts very well, but I only have a few more minutes here before I have to go do something else.  Maybe I'll come back and edit this later?

Anyhow - I think it's pretty safe to assume that Power structures are not 100% deliberate.  i think they can largely be attributed to basic survival instincts, greed, and, say, lack of moral fiber and/or fortitude.  a lot of this behavior, i believe, is driven by the subconscious mind.

my other thought was there is also the law of unintended consequences.  Getting back to using Fear as a method of control - no matter your thoughts and opinions about Covid, it is evident that it has provided a source of fear and has been exploited in efforts to control.  The unintended consequence, i think is that, those in power did not expect that so many people, when faced with a "the world may end tomorrow and you will die" situation would accept this fate and pursue their own selfish interests instead of falling in lock step with "the program"  - i can back up this claim somewhat in that people have been quitting their jobs in the largest numbers in history.  i think this is reactionary to the fear stimulus - a sort of, i'm going to enjoy what life i have left as best i can instead of endure the jabs, masks and seemingly endless lockdowns.

i think throughout history, when the coercive fear stimulus is the loud side of a barrel of a gun, it's always a surprise how many choose the bullet instead of getting with the program.
-------------------------


i guess without some sort of end goal in mind, i don't see much point in this exercise . . . maybe your goals are loftier than mine, but i feel i am already able to exert enough influence to achieve my goals.

 :evilmad:Can I interest you in some innuendos?

Perhaps a euphemism or two?

We've got a sale on metaphors.

Say whatever you want, that's like a simile.

I LOVED shadowgate. I can still hear the music.

My mom is not a gamer, but back in the early 90s, she loved Tetris... and Shadowgate.

She was obsessed with Shadowgate for a little while. I remember her beating it while the rest of the family clawed their faces off.

As I've gotten older I've come to realize that my favorite thing about my favorite video games was the music. 

Edit- man, you ain't kidding.  I confess, Cain's poat reminded me of the game, but it took a little googling to figure out what it was called.  I couldn't recall the music, so I decided to listen to it on my way home from work.  I found a youtube video of the game play.  It's a little off putting at first but it really does get pretty cool after awhile.  I hope I'm not just exploiting some sort of long form neurological feedback loop that just makes me think it's good music because it's a nearly forgotten childhood memory.  Either way, A+ enjoyable time.  Will def listen again
