Political Tourism

I am not posting the following video to arouse a political discussion.  I mean come on, these people hardly warrant a serious response.  I am posting it as a device to illustrate a few theories of mine. 1.  Politics and political nostalgia have become a form of tourism, like a virtual game that some people […]

Barbarians at the Gates…

It has long been the interpretation of historians that the spread of liberal education across America led to a radicalization of the youth in the 1960s and 70s, and some have implied that there was, in response to this, an effort to denude education of those elements that lead young people to think in revolutionary ways, by associating the goals of education, not with moral or ethical transcendence, but as a means toward financial security. As an accident of this process, critical thinking has given way to discipline as the overarching theme of educational development. In other words the metaphor of the poet, as a model of educational mastery, has given way to the ethic of the soldier.

Fear Baby Fear

Small words, read well. Oil well hell smell, Yell. The house is on fire. The sky is falling. The glaciers are melting. The oceans are rising. Big words hurt my ears. Make me feel stupid. Intellectual arrows shot from cupid. Filling the air. With their wisdom. I fear change. I fear range. Fear baby fear. […]

Freedom of Speech

Ted Glick, environmental activist is being sentenced today…for hanging banners to communicate to our government the simple message of ‘Green Jobs Now.’  The government has gone out of their way to encourage the court to triple the sentence.  God Bless America.  Write a letter folks, or post this on facebook, this is insanity….

De-petroleumization: The art of “Collapse”

Posted by on Jun 16, 2010 in Economics, politics

This is my latest conspiracy theory, which predicts a pattern of dis-disinformation conducted by government officials, who, unable to officially and explicitly inform the public of facts concerning the current economic collapse, are resorting to individual acts of rebellion–through dramatic feats, curious phrases, and off-the-script performances–in order to align themselves more truthfully with the masses.

Here is Harry Kreisler with Peter Dale Scott at Berkeley in 2007.  This is, admittedly, a long interview, but it is worth watching.  Skip the intro; it starts to get interesting at 9:45.  And then again at 45:00.
