Your sixth topic dealing with Corbyn receiving the Nazi smear (actually the antisemitism smear from pro-Zionism's incredibly tiny toolbox) highlights an overarching problem that enables so much of what's troubling us, and that is a total lack of responsibility.

Assange's railroading by Trump/Biden is probably the best latest example of this.

Rob a liquor store and you're likely to spend time behind bars; murder a million people based on lies and you get a book deal and a flag-draped sendoff.

Not one person went to prison for crashing the economy back in 2009 and not one person in uniform received so much as a wristslap for droning a family to death and then lying about it. And so it goes.

And of course a lack of responsibility is Israel's middle name.

With the democratic party firmly wrapped around a policy of Internet censorship, the gap between actions and responsibility will only grow worse.

One of the first things our parents tried to drum into our heads as children is now glaringly absent from public life -- and it shows. Changing this should be a task we all demand of our representatives regardless of where we stand politically.

Whatever problem dominates our awareness feels like the gravest danger of all. This biological programming was designed for imminent threats. This programming currently makes consensus difficult to achieve—everyone perceives something different.

“The biggest threats are the ones we can’t come back from”, is excellent, clear framing.

Nothing about our current western leaders gives me any confidence that they will be able to navigate this crisis, not least of which is that they are doing their utmost to bring it about.

Nazis were extreme right wing. Corbyn is center left at best. It was the Zionists who were attacking Corbyn with their fake antisemitism, which is now being used by the new Zionist enabling leader against the left wing of the party.

"nobody could possibly be biased toward it is unless they're a paid shill."

But, if you point out that the sources of antiChina prop are USUKAUS-funded according to their own websites ... .

The same assholes run it all, there are no separate "countries" on the 'inside'... all the fear porn 'narratives', threat of war, cold war, killer "viruses", etc all for bullying the public into some kind of consent. What's more dangerous is WHAT they will do to 'make believe' these threats actually exist. The Nazis came to the United States, Operation Paperclip!

I think it's quite likely that humans, at least some of them, would be malevolent enough to set of nuclear war, economic collapse, environmental destruction, and pandemics, not only for fun and profit but completely by accident or through collective ineptitude. Your view of the ruling class seems optimistic to me.

Our leader Caitlin references sloppy thinking several times.

I recently reacquaint myself with the Yungian Myers-Briggs typology stuff. My type over emphasizes logic and it occurred to me to review the other 15 types in this formulation. What I found was that 50% a man and 75% of women find logic difficult and process life through other means: feelings, intuition, experiences, etc.

We like to think we are all equal, we are not.

Compared to intuition, much of which seems to be pattern recognition, logic is slow and often inaccurate. Hence pattern recognition appears relatively early in evolution, whereas logic seems to have shown up only so recently as to have been within the scope of human history. True, it has great powers -- we can build world-destroying weapons which are so terrible we can't use them -- but these are apparently of no use whatever to bacteria or tigers.

In accurate thinking, simple errors, wishful thinking, dingbats galore, most people are incapable of being right (in a very basic sense) does this comport with your meaning?

I was just considering the differences between intuition and logic in animal brains, not that I know a lot about brain physiology. Both logic, which seems to have to do with language, and intuition seems subject to errors in all cases. However, the narrow scope of logic and its potential for self-checking might make it more accurate in some.
