The nihilist would have you believe that because they personally can’t tell the difference between one theory and another that there is no difference between one “theory” or another..
Such nihilistic equivocation is patently false, of course, sometimes even absurdly false, because operationally there is a world of difference between certain “theories”, such as what is true and what is false, or between what is right and what is wrong.
The “gifted” nihilist is so adept at clever sophistry that those who engage with them might come away so confused by the debate that they, too, start having trouble telling the difference. Nietzsche springs to mind as the quintessential example of such duplicity, with Kafka coming in a close second, and a huge pack of intellectual bullshit artists vying for third place and dishonorable mentions.
Nihilists, fundamentally, are guilt ridden liars who are full of shit. There is a difference between true and false, just as there is a difference between right and wrong. Our occasional difficulty in distinguishing the difference does not negate that fact that the difference is both real and important to us.
Those who would persuade you to think otherwise are drowning in the shit that they are full of. Be careful not to let them drag you down with them, as drowning people tend to do.June 11, 2023 at 12:10 am #136598
Trudeau insults China, Russia and thinks that he can do it with impunity,
(exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious consequences of an action)
Here’s what Trudeau said on his surprise visit to Ukraine
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met Saturday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv, where he committed $500 million in new funding for military assistance.
He also announced new sanctions as the country’s war with Russia continues.June 11, 2023 at 12:27 am #136599
Trudeau checking to see if his 8 tanks are still operational.

Captured Leopard 2 tank with tungsten sabot being pulled out.
White square mark on side of turret with narrow black cross is for US military satellite ID, for battle management. This hasn’t been seen before. The ‘offensive’ must have been very important to the Americans.
Another 3 leopards hit by drones … though last one may be a miss.
-> A lot of equipment is damaged by such drones in the last couple of days … crazy

Waiting for the Russians to drag back one of the numerous Leopard II tanks from the contact zone back to Moscow for examination and then, TaDa, display them on Red Square.
Imagine the Deutschland Butthurt® when a German tank bearing an Iron Cross is displayed as a trophy, a Scalp as it were, in Russian 80 years after the phenomenal defeat of the Germans at Stalingrad.
Let’s rub it in, feel the burn Krauts!
The whole world will see the impotence of NATOtardistan and the German tank.June 11, 2023 at 1:21 am #136601
From Dmitry Orlov:
“….the Russians view of the West as their existential enemy: a fascist, racist entity determined to destroy Russia but too weak and cowardly to do the job themselves.”

The current crop of feminists deserve this
I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!
Actually, it is Mr. San Francisco. Monroe Lace is a male in a dress.
Every place in society that women have gained over time, men in dresses are trying to take away. Soon we will be back to the 1800s.June 11, 2023 at 1:59 am #136603
Well I sure do hope that beauty pageant crown is worth a lot to you, Monroe, because you paid for it with your sanity and your dick.June 11, 2023 at 2:21 am #136604
To the best of my admittedly meager knowledge there has never before been a global situation in which a significant portion of the world’s population has declared war on the entire other portion. The whole world split into just two camps.
Yet here we are.
The portion that holds truth in first regard is being genocidally attacked (on all fronts) by the much smaller portion, for the capital crime of telling the truth about the portion who espouse professional lying, cheating, stealing and killing as their leading career choices.
We’re not talking about crimes of violence here. We’re talking about talking. If you say out loud the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, then the governing powers that be (through all of their powerful interlinked and collaborating institutions) WILL attack you, and probably wipe you out, since they run all of the powerful institutions which were designed to enforce such things. All legal and everything, sort of.
What makes the dark circus so fascinating is two fold. First is its inevitability. It IS going to happen, one way or the other. And secondly is the diagram-able fact that the powers that be depend upon the truth tellers for almost all of their power.
Imagine that. It’s enough to make you wanna slap yo’ Mama.June 11, 2023 at 2:39 am #136605
The bad guys are building what they see (and presumably hope) to be an unassailable redoubt of governmental (and other) power, control, and protection, but in the process of doing that they are revealing to the whole world what it is that they really want.
And you know that the stuff they want is gut wrenchingly vile and totally unacceptable to all but the most depraved creatures. Therefore, as the bad guys’ true motives are revealed they are rejected with prejudice by more, and more, and ever more people who are not depraved.
In other words, the bad guys become fewer in number, as the ranks of the righteous swell. No wonder the culprits want an unassailable redoubt of power, control and protection.
It’s obvious what all of the foregoing leads to. It leads to this war we are in. Only the most thoroughly cowed (!) are aware that it’s the most serious war this ol’ world has seen in a while.
The outcome is inevitable. The bad guys lose and the price of victory will be high. Very, very high . . . and absolutely worth every penny and tear of it.June 11, 2023 at 2:59 am #136606
There is a much discussed, debated and puzzled over phenomenon that is utterly central to our lives, called “consciousness” (or “awareness” , almost synonymously) and yet it has never been even remotely explained or even defined by the material sciences.
That’s because the material sciences are the PRODUCT of conscious awareness, not the source of it. Even if one stops well short of recognizing the phenomenon consciousness to be spiritual in essential nature, it’s still axiomatically necessary for conscious awareness to exist before it can perform the studies and work that are science. Just as there must be intelligence before there can be “artificial” (simulated) intelligence”.
So the world is a manifestation of conscious intelligence, and if there is one thing that an intelligence loves, it is an action packed adventurous love story. So if the world sometimes looks like a conglomeration of unlikely yet interconnected dramatic stories, it’s because that’s exactly what it is.
That’s all for today fellow Commentarians. See ya tomorrow.June 11, 2023 at 3:07 am #136607

Yeah, so I guess the the big question is which side is actually right and which side is actually wrong? I’m betting on the side that actually looks for the truth. Now would be a good time to remind, be sure not to fall into the nihilism trap at this point, because there is a right answer, and it is fairly important that a person figures out what it is.July 16, 2023 at 11:58 pm #139200
