Pablo Picasso The first communion 1896 (he was 14-15)

“What is the purpose of NATO other than to oppose Russia? If you’re addressing Russia in a hostile way from the beginning, of course their reaction is going to be hostile back..”
The ironic thing about the current political changes is that the globalist oligarchs – the WEF backers – need someone to fight. They just do not have the nouse to work out how to live together in peace and harmony, so they will need conflict, yet here they are looking for a new world order where they are in charge and all people are under their control. But they live to fight. What they need to work out who are they going to fight? They need a fight.
It looks like even if they achieve their one world government, they would simply start fighting each other and end up destroying their creation, in the same way as they ended up destroying the USA and Europe. Some people are just mental and there is nothing you can do about it, they are so caught up in their own stories that they cannot escape into reality and then into happiness. Kind of sad.
Meanwhile, I brewed a close of “Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA” today, after brewing a clone of their “Sierra Nevada Pale Ale” last month. Wow, did the wort taste good, super bitter and super sweet all at the same time, this is going to be a good one. Soon to be bitter with a decent ABV.May 4, 2023 at 10:27 am #134607Dr. DParticipant

1 “Ukrainian Oligarch Offered Cash For Anyone Willing To Fly Drone Into Moscow [on May 9]
2 “Zelensky insists “We didn’t attack Putin.”
Different question though. Why May 9? That was the day the USSR defeated Germany. So why should Ukraine care? That would be like applying all your efforts to President’s Day, or Armistice Day, Nov 11. I mean, do you hate the Easter Bunny? Don’t like fireworks? Hate huge discount sales?
No. It’s because the USSR May 9 victory is over NAZI Germany. That’s why it bugs them very personally.
“there are no options left but the physical removal of Zelensky and his clique,” Medvedev wrote on Telegram. “We don’t need him to sign [their] unconditional surrender.”
So…WWIII? We’re very disengaged and unworried, like WWI. Worse, Moscow did no immediate actions or retaliations. Cold fire is the worst revenge. Watching, planning, intelligently striking the most effectively. Not emotional at all, or not in that immature, surface way.
“[Zelensky] He once again stressed that Ukraine needs combat aircraft.”
To do what? Russian anti-aircraft batteries are without peer. They could most probably take out all the F35s without problem. But that’s not a win: the F35s are taken out by a light rain.

PacWest: Already more $$ lost in the banking collapse than all 20 years including ‘08 – and that’s excluding FTX. That may be because very few banks that happened to be large, but we also haven’t got started. Yet, nada, zero, zilch, nothing. Denial ain’t a river. And the Fed is going to pause. You know, before the market capitulates to them and before any reversal or crisis. …Just as NEVER happened in history, ever.
This is caused by the complete collapse of Commercial RE REITs, etc, which have been since 2020 work from home with definite rock-solid losses unrealized, BUT ALSO the raising of rates cratered all their Tier 1 capital of Treasury bonds, which they are essentially required by law to hold. So are there any assets they do or can hold that offset? Let’s see: Commercial, no. Residential, no. Treasury and cash reserves, no. Causing a deep recession so manufacturing, retail, and stocks fall, no.
Nope! But there’s no crisis. BuyBuyBuy! — Jim Cramer Literally. He once again said “Buy” 10 minutes before the collapse. I forget if it was Republic or Silicon Valley. Still on TV, an “Expert”, not discredited.

“the British people – not the press, not the politicians – failed to understand their place in the world.”
Video “Equity: an administered political economy in which shares are adjusted so that citizens are made equal.” And as he said, sound familiar? Now note the language: “Shares”? Trying to sound profitable, capitalistic, freely-traded? “Citizens”? These same people have erased the concept of “citizen” as well as border and the word does never cross their lips, even in court or parliament where legally there is no other word. Yet they voluntarily use it here. As a way of saying “law” and “Us”, not “everyone”.
This demonstrates that they are International Socialists, unlike their fraternal brothers the National Socialists, aka, the Nazis. But still twins.
In any case, any and all “equity” is Socialist as anti-meritocratic to the core. From the first breath. That would be fine, but all recorded history says it doesn’t work, never worked, is deeply inequitable, even more than Capitalism if that’s possible, and in the most deadly and furious ways such as equality under the law, and aside from killing 100M people in the 20th century, requires starvation, mass hardship, a deadly war and conflict to remove. I do not wish for any of these things.
But I guess many, many people do. We get to decide right now.May 4, 2023 at 12:07 pm #134611
As we approach May 9
If you listen to this last message on April 21, 1945 from the blood drinking vermin Goebbels you can hear him lying to the last moment, identical to a scumbag like Blinken.

Here is Goebbels less than two weeks before he becomes dur Fuhrer’s hand picked successor as ‘leader’ of the Third Reich and then on May 1, 1945 he orders his wife Magda to murder his six children and then he shoots Magda then himself.
The Monsters of the current Neocon Cabal are cut from the exact same cloth as ‘Doctor” Goebbels
Goebbels Last Speech – 21 April 1945
This is how the Neonazicon Satanists roll……
Papers reveal how Goebbels children were killed
“BERLIN: As the Red Army closed in on Berlin, Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, and his wife, Magda, gathered their six children and made their way to the Fuhrerbunker beneath the bombed-out Chancellery.
The children were knocked out with morphine by an SS doctor and then had cyanide capsules crushed between their teeth. Afterwards Goebbels shot his wife, then himself.
( At the back is Harald Quandt, Magda’s first son from her first marriage.
Maik Wogersien, a public prosecutor, found an account of the court case in 1959 that included a confession by Dr Helmut Kunz, who helped with the killing of Helga, 12, Hildegard, 11, Helmut, nine, Holdine, eight, Hedwig, six, and Heidrun, four – names starting with H in honour of Hitler.
In Kunz’s evidence before the Hamm Upper State Court, he said: ”Towards the end of April, Magda came up to me and said, ‘I need your help in the killing of the children.’ I refused her, saying that was not my responsibility.
”But Magda Goebbels insisted and shortly afterwards declared to me that it was no longer a request for help but a direct order from Hitler.”
Kunz was originally a dentist with the SS Death’s Head division but became a trusted friend of Hitler after being wounded in the field and transferred to a desk job in the Chancellery.
He told the court he escaped the bunker but was tracked down by Magda Goebbels hours later. She said he must return or ”you will be a dead man”.
On the evening of May 1, 1945, he was forced to carry out his grim duty. ”The children were all in one room. But they were not asleep. ‘Have no fear,’ said Magda Goebbels. ‘The doctor here is going to give you an injection of the sort that all children and soldiers get.’ She left the room. I injected them with morphine – the eldest daughters first, then the son, then the other daughters. It took around 10 minutes.
”When the children were off, Magda Goebbels went into the room, the cyanide capsules in her hand. She was in there for several minutes, then stepped out, crying, saying, ‘Doctor, I cannot do it. You must.’
”I answered immediately, ‘No, I cannot.’ Then she cried, ‘Well, if you cannot do it, then get Stumpfegger.”’ Dr Ludwig Stumpfegger, a physician close to Heinrich Himmler, the head of the SS, murdered the children.
Mr Wogersien said the papers gave a new insight into the last moments of the Goebbels family and into postwar justice. ”They throw light on the mild punishments of Nazis at the time and how the law was opaque, with a judiciary composed of many former Nazi judges. They also show how a mother became so corrupted by Nazism that she would allow this to happen to innocent children.”

Universities in Canada are encouraging departments and professors to bring indigenous lore, indigenous methods of investigation, and indigenous local knowledge into their classes and research. They want even professors of the hard sciences—physics and chemistry, but especially biology—to expand their horizons to include the ways and results of traditional Native American inquiry.
There’s a good reason to resist current initiatives to indigenize science and there’s a bad reason. The bad reason is that indigenous science isn’t science. The good reason is that indigenization initiatives are about inclusion, celebration and social justice, not inquiry.
First, the bad reason.May 4, 2023 at 12:22 pm #134613
Everything is connected?
A brief response to a common question after the takeover of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank by the regulators.
by Richard Werner
To consider the question whether banks should be allowed to fail, we have to be aware that bank failures have a significant adverse impact on the economy.
Firstly, there is the impact on the economy, on economic growth and employment. We saw this in the 1930s, when the US Federal Reserve oversee the bankruptcy of ca. 10,000 small banks, this had a devastating impact on the economy. Banks create credit and this is our money supply, because we use Bank Digital Currency. If the banks collapse, the money supply collapses, and thus economic growth declines, unemployment rises and we experience a recession. Of course, the impact is larger, the more banks go bust.
That leads me to the second point: Banks are network businesses and we experience the problem of ‘contagion’ quickly: As one bank fails, this will have ripple-on effects on other banks. Quickly another bank can fail, and another one etc.
Thirdly, there is the reputation effect: bank failures result in loss of faith in the financial system. As a result, people will revert to gold or use foreign or private cryptocurrencies. This makes it harder for the central bank to maintain control over the economy and will weaken the efficacy of monetary policy.
Fourthly, there is the issue of equity and justice. Many ordinary people do not have the time or knowledge to understand the differences between different banks, while everyone mostly still needs a bank account. They can hardly be expected to make an informed assessment of which bank is riskier than another.
Fifthly, the banking system has one inherent flaw: it is possible for a perfectly good bank with sound assets to get into trouble and to fail, if only a large amount of depositors demand that their deposit claims on the bank are transferred out of the bank. This is why in the US Congress agreed to establish the Federal Reserve: it would step in and lend, as a lender of last resort, to banks hit by a run on deposits. Some of these problems were modified by the introduction of the deposit insurance scheme, but they remain the main five reasons why generally regulators try to avoid bank failures.
What about the argument that rescuing banks means we don’t really have free market capitalism? Well, one could say that in the US free markets were given up with the introduction of the Federal Reserve (and some would argue, the simultaneous introduction of the income tax). As soon as a central bank is introduced, central planning and top-down manipulation of markets have a foothold. According to the Theory of Bureaucracy, what we can next expect is for the bureaucracy to grow, like cancer, and take over ever greater parts of society. Mind you, for much of its history, the US did not have a central bank. Economic growth was higher then…
Diversity in banking seems to be key. Sadly, the central planners have been reducing the number of banks, and this is the sixth reason why it’s not usually a good idea to let banks fail or even to let them merge: it reduces the number of banks in the economy and with it increases concentration of the banking system. Fewer and bigger banks will lend less and less to small firms, which tends to mean that productive credit creation the produces jobs, prosperity and no inflation, also declines, and credit creation for asset purchases, causing asset bubbles, or credit creation for consumption, causing inflation, become more dominant.
Ultimately the central planners maximise their power by introducing CBDCs. And that’s where a conflict of interest becomes apparent: Shouldn’t the regulators, as umpires, keep out of the business of banking? Shouldn’t they be prevented from competing against the banks which they regulate? If the umpire in a soccer game suddenly starts to score goals, using the yellow and red card liberally in the process, few would think this was a fair game. Likewise, the central banks should not at the same time be bank regulators and prepare to compete against them via central bank digital currencies.
It is concerning that for the past decade or so central banks have steadily been working towards the introduction of CBDCs, while at the same time adopting policies that have killed thousands of small banks. In the eurozone, more than 5,000 banks have disappeared since the ECB started business a little over two decades ago. Once CBDCs are introduced, it just takes a bit of bank run, such as in the case of Silicon Valley Bank, and all deposits will be shifted to the central bank, driving banks out of business. Then we will have arrived at the most centralised form of banking: A Soviet-style economy with only one bank. While that may be the dream of any central planner, it is inefficient, does not work, as we have seen in the Soviet Union, and it also crushes the human spirit: Central planners get too much wrong, which is at the very least demotivating and frustrating, but is quickly much worse than that – it easily turns into totalitarianism.
Considering the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and also Signature Bank on 10 March 2023, what concerns me most is that the bank seems to have been solvent and that Federal Reserve did not seem to have provided the short-term liquidity that a solvent bank should receive from the central bank when there is a bank run. The depositors were largely companies and institutions and not covered by the deposit insurance, which means that a classic bank run could occur. Almost $50bn left in one day on Thursday 9 March 2023, thanks to efficient digital bank technology with which we transfer BDC (bank digital currency), proving once again that there is no problem with the digital money that we have been using for decades. But why did the Fed only provide such liquidity after the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation had stepped in and closed the bank? Over the weekend, the regulators set up a new bank that took over. Just like in the 1930s, the promised lender of last resort function, on the back of which a reluctant Congress was persuaded to adopt the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 (and a very badly attended Congress, as the vote had barely been announced and was held on 23 December, when most had left for Christmas), was once again not forthcoming in time. The result: An ever more concentrated banking system. And ever more power for the central planners.
China’s success started when Deng Xiaoping came to power in 1978 and immediately demanded that ideology and politics should be de-emphasised, and economic policies should be adopted that had a record of working well. So he ditched the Soviet-style monobanking system and created thousands of banks, mostly small local banks, lending to small firms.
Decentralised structures are more resilient and more successful than centralised ones, for one, because central planning crushes the human spirit. Central planners also can never get things right in detail. Decentralised forms of organisation improve motivation and boost creativity. Since money is at the heart of the economy, and banks create it, we need to ensure we have a decentralised banking system consisting of many small banks.May 4, 2023 at 12:27 pm #134614
“Exceptional times call for exceptional actions.”
What if these are the exceptional actions?
Editor’s Note: We believe that, in general, short sellers perform a critical role in U.S. markets – calling attention to corporate corruption and fraud that has been missed by regulators and the media. But the rapidly deteriorating condition of U.S. banks is a function of the unprecedented span of time that the Fed kept interest rates at the zero interest level, forcing banks to make fixed-rate mortgage loans at 3, 4 and 5 percent interest in order to remain competitive. Those loans and their related mortgage-backed securities are now underwater as a result of the Fed raising rates faster than at any time in the last 40 years. Exceptional times call for exceptional actions. President Biden needs to step up to the plate.May 4, 2023 at 12:31 pm #134615

The lead up to May 9, 1945 included Mussolini’s execution and subsequent ritual mutilation by a crowd in the Piazzale Loreto.
The bodies of Mussolini and his whore Clara Petacci along with three other fascists were kicked and spat upon, pelted with vegetables, urinated on, shot at and kicked and Mussolini’s face was disfigured by beatings with bats. A women also emerged from the crowd with a pistol and shot Mussolini’s corpse five times, one for each of her sons who died at the hands of fascists.
The bodies were then hung upside down from the roof of an Esso gas station.
The bodies were then stoned from below by civilians.
Allied forces began arriving in the city during the course of the morning and an American eyewitness described the crowd as “sinister, depraved, out of control”.
Fascist loyalist Achille Starace was captured and sentenced to death and then taken to the Piazzale Loreto and shown the body of Mussolini, which he saluted just before being shot.
His body was strung up beside Mussolini’s.
This is how I sincerely hope the Neonazicons like Blinken, Austin, Garland, Nuland, Nazilensky et al end up, hanging by their heels from a gas station awning, defiled by the mob.May 4, 2023 at 1:01 pm #134618oxymoronParticipant

Larry Johnson addresses the Kremlin drone strikes
He makes a very good point.
“Russia is going to play this to the hilt. Note that it waited almost 24 hours before announcing the attack. However, Putin and his General staff are not going to be driven by emotion. They have a war plan and will continue to follow it until circumstances on the ground require a change.
Some believe that Russia will now take off the gloves and attack the Ukrainian Executive, Legislative and military headquarters in Kiev. I believe that the Russians are not in a hurry to do this. Why? I believe they have intelligence assets, i.e., human spies, embedded in the Ukrainian General Staff and in Zelensky’s cabinet. Hitting those key Ukrainian government facilities when they are filled with workers would run the risk of destroying critical human sources. Just something to think about….”

1) Go Bobby!
2) Go Bobby!
3) Medvedev plays bad-cop.
4) Saying it was an assassination attempt goes too far. It was “counting coup” as the Plains Indians used to do, scoring a club-blow on a rival-tribe warrior.
It was a good symbolic show with the fireworks above the Kremlin.
Calling it “a Russian false flag” was also going a step too far and is not credible outside the US/NATO-stani sphere.
5) Stagflation is back, and the old solution was “Industrial Strength Tranquilizer”, as recounted by the Austin Lounge Lizards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk9fc8quDVw (Is there another beer that rhymes with “tranquilizer”, since we are boycotting Bud these days?)May 4, 2023 at 2:52 pm #134622
My gut reaction on the Kremlin drone strike is that Nazilensky and goons run this op without really giving the Empire of Lies a heads up.
The Russians, having superb intel and agents within the Ukronazi network knew it was coming.
The drones were slow lawnmower engine variety with small warheads and easily detected
The Russians had anti-aircraft stuff on the roofs many moons ago.
The Russians thought, hey, this could work to our advantage and let her rip.
Voila, somethings the Russians didn’t actually plan but knew about and let proceed.
Ukronaziland get some PR points giving the Russians a black eye while denying any involvement, similar to Nordstream.
Lather, rinse, repeat in the news cycle.
The Russian public’s reaction would be like someone flying a drone into our Capitol Dome, kaboom!
Not the jackass Jan 6th clown show the FBI mafia filth orchestrated, but a real explosion over the Capitol Dome.

I’m happy to hear about jb-hb’s one-man mission to be at least one man.
Quoting John Steinbeck from The SHort Reign of Pippin IV:
The. king went back to his original, disguise, which was him-
self. Dressed in his corduroy jacket and ‘espadrilles, he took to
riding a motor scooter about the country. After two falls he.
added a crash helmet to his costume.
One day lie scooted to the little town of Gambais, famous for
its perfect if partly ruined Chateau de Neuville. Pippin ate his
lunch beside the overgrown moat of the chateau. Re watched
an elderly man feeling about in the reedy water of the moat with
a long-tined rake. –
The old mart made contact with a hard and heavy object, and
dragged it up the bank. It was a mossy bust of Pan, horned and
garlanded. Only when the ancient struggled to lift Pan to a
granite pedestal on the moat’s edge did the king get up and
move to help him. The two of them heaved the heavy statue up
on its base, and then thev stood back and regarded it, wiping
their green and slippery fingers on their trousers.
“I like it facing a little more east,” the old man said. The two
of them edged it around. Pippin – with his handkerchief wiped
the crusted Panic face until the feral lips and the sly, lecherous
eyes were visible.
“How did lie get in the moat?” the king asked.
“Oh, someone pushed him in. They always do, sometimes
two or three times a year.”
The old man raised his shoulders and spread his hands. “Who
knows?” he said. “There’s people that push things in the moat.
Pretty hard work too. There’s just people that push things in the
moat. See those other stands along there? There’s a marble vase
and a baby with a shell and a Leda in the water down there.”
The king asked gently, “Are you the owner here?”
“No, I’m not. I live hereabouts.”
“Then why do you puli them out?”
The old man looked puzzled — searched for an answer. “Why
— f ‘ don’t know. I guess there’s people that pull things out —
that’s what they do. I guess I’m one of that kind.”
The king stared at the green, slimy Pan.
The old man said helplessly, “I guess there’s people that do
different things, and,” he added, as though he had just discovered
it, “I guess that’s how. things get done.” *
“Good or bad?” the ‘king asked.
“I don’t understand,” said the old man helplessly. “There’s
just people — just what people do.”
Thanx for the welcome. But I’ll be extremely scarce for the most part. Internet chatter is bad for your health but addictions are hard to kill.

Religion as the opiate of the masses:
A wise man once said, “It is a blessing to be born into a religion, but a curse to die in one.”
What does this mean? Firstly, that religion, at its roots, is not a bad thing. It is a moral training ground designed to awaken and strengthen the higher faculties. This is the blessing. Unfortunately, religion is also a business and a social control system that heavily indoctrinates its membership. Like fly paper, once you become indoctrinated, you are psychologically “stuck” in that belief system, often for the remainder of your life. Most religions insist they have an exclusive claim on truth, then go on to psychologically “box in” their members using the carrot and stick, heaven and hell, technique of control. Very few have the courage to risk their “salvation” by breaking out of this box.
This is where the curse comes in. Because world religions are only the training ground, a spiritual kindergarten. They are not the end in themselves, but only the beginning of the journey. At some point, those that are drawn to a higher life, “I came that you might have life, and have it more abundantly”, drawn to a greater understanding, a brighter light than the darkness of the world, they must break free of the psychological prison that their respective religion has put them in. Only then, can they leave spiritual kindergarten behind and continue their development.May 4, 2023 at 4:31 pm #134628Maxwell QuestParticipant

“On Tuesday, the clips on YouTube, many of which had been watched by hundreds of thousands, even millions, began disappearing from the site. Constantin Films, the company that owns the rights to the film, asked for them to be removed, and YouTube complied.
“Martin Moszkowicz, head of film and TV at Constantin films in Munich, said the company had been fighting copyright infringement for years. Jewish organizations have also complained about the tastefulness of the clips, he said.
“When does parody stop? It is a very complicated issue,” Moszkowicz said. “So we are taking a simple approach: Take them all down. We’ve been doing it for years now. The important thing is to protect our copyright. We are very proud of the film.””
Geez. No wonder I don’t hang around chatsites anymore. Don’t we have anything better to do than count silly coup?
Go find a statue to reset and stop worrying about the fate of the galaxy, awreddy.

Ukrainian Drone Bombs Kremlin Flagpole is up https://drjohnsblog.substack.com/p/ukrainian-drone-bombe-kremlin-flagpole
Andrew Korybko via The Automatic Earth: (I think that it was just propaganda-grandstanding to send little drones to hit the Kremlin, a slap to Russia’s face.)
Russia blamed Ukraine for Tuesday night’s attempted assassination of President Putin after two drones attacked the Kremlin but were disabled by the security services before they harmed anyone. Kiev rejected the accusation and lied that the incident was a false flag per the innuendo pushed by Zelensky’s spokesman Nikiforov and senior advisor Podolyak. US Secretary of State Blinken echoed their claims by advising to “take anything coming out of the Kremlin with a very large shaker of salt.”
The Kremlin’s predictably declared right to retaliate “anywhere and anytime it deems necessary” guaranteed that neither of those two would admit to any knowledge of the attack, but it wasn’t foreseen that they’d both collude in concocting a false flag conspiracy theory…
..Considering that few are expected to fall for this fake news, it can therefore be interpreted as them provoking the Kremlin by way of mockery since nobody in their right mind would ever believe this. They both seem convinced that Russia won’t overwhelmingly or at least reciprocally respond to this assassination attempt,
but patriots hope that it’ll finally surprise them.
Moon ofAlabama (German) figures that the Zelensky regime is exiting stage left…
I agree with Bhadrakumar that there will be no knee-jerk reaction from Moscow. But public opinion in Russia demands that there will be payback for the attack and against anyone involved in it.
Putin’s hands are tied beyond a point when the country is in rage and demanding retribution, as evident from the comments by former Russian President and current Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev: “After today’s terrorist attack, there are no options left except for the physical elimination of Zelensky and his clique.”
That Zelenski fled to Finland, then to the Netherlands and Germany after the drones hit the Kremlin is a sure sign of his complicity in the act.
Gilbert Doctorow is back in St.Petersburg and reads the public sentiment.
The talk show Evening with Vladimir Solovyov was less subtle. The host opened by reminding his audience of what Dmitry Medvedev, former President and head of the Russian Security Council said earlier in the day: that Ukraine is now a terrorist state, that there is no longer any justification for negotiating with Zelensky and that the Kiev regime must be destroyed.
For those who think that Solovyov and Medvedev were just sounding off and have no credibility, I point out that the Volodin, Speaker of the State Duma, yesterday also called for the destruction of the decision-making bodies in Ukraine, which means, of course, the presidential administration first of all.
While American and European newscasters opine over whether all this spells an escalation of the war, I will say with almost certainty that it does. It is hard to imagine that Vladimir Putin will be able or will even want to remain calm and restrained in the face of the latest U.S.-Kiev provocations. If his position is at risk in this war, it is from Russia’s super patriots. (Revenge is a dish, best served cold. Putin will not be provoked.) Thanks Christine.

JPMorgan Chase, Officially the Riskiest Bank in the U.S., Is Allowed by Federal Regulators to Buy First Republic Bank
The Bank Holding Company Act, a federal law, prohibits banks that control “more than 10 percent of the total amount of deposits of insured depository institutions in the United States” to purchase another bank.
According to its call report to federal regulators, as of December 31, 2022, JPMorgan Chase held $2.01 trillion in deposits in domestic offices and $426 billion in deposits in foreign offices, for a total of $2.4 trillion. According to the FDIC, as of December 31, 2022, there was a total of $17.7 trillion in domestic deposits in all U.S. banks and savings associations. That means that JPMorgan Chase held 11.36 percent of total U.S. domestic deposits, well in excess of the 10 percent cap, and should have been ineligible to buy yet another bank and become even more systemically dangerous.May 4, 2023 at 9:29 pm #134638
But I thank jb-hb for that exchange. Followed by a nap after some pranayama with a parrot snoozing under my pendleton, I thought of my annoyance, of the passion we sling in general around these fora, railings against the working of diabolical humanity especially machiavellian cabals, and I think, “Why? We know we can’t fix it. It’s just another habit we’ve acquired, this one a sort of cognitive repetitive stress injury from post-modern cultures incessant barrage of mediated jive, compounded information overload, just one more incessant twitch we’ve acquired, that prevents us from simply being happy, which is so easy to do unless you’re currently starving, being tortured, etc…. why make ourselves unhappy?”
What a tortured lot we are. Homo saps in general but uniquely we hyper-cognitives whose very existence is a form of what the Kafkaesque government in Nabokov’s Invitation to a Beheading said one Cincinnatus was guilty of: gnostical turpitude.
U.cayn’t.fix.it. You can only let go, moment by moment, of the insane delusion that you/we can, breath deep the holy fire of life, and smile for what some might call no reason at all but one recognizes as being caused by the simple presemnce of the dearest thing in the cosmos: oneself.
Dr. D has numerously said that we do it to stay sane, but I feel that pounding your head against the wall, to provide temporary external cranial distraction from the painful mentation within, is not endurable in the long run. All that broken glass inside our heads only makes things worse when we shake it around like this.
Contemporary Xtian rock, with autotuned vocals and the usual chord changes and culture-pandering pop stylings, is not my thing but these youong Xtian punks know a few things, they do, after being raised by freaks like us in the disastrous world we’ve made:

“May the Fourth be with you”, VP Gary.
“Men being hopelessy unconscious” is a nihilistic summation.
We do our daily work, with or without hope.
Hope was that Obama jingle.
Hope was the last curse out of Pandora’s box.
Carry on, then…
Pigeon-holing Jung’s 20th century statement with a failed 19th century EG0 fondling ideiology (nihilism), regarding my application of Jung’s specific experiential conclusion(s) to the 21st century reality of spiritual rebellion (evil), regarding restoration of spiritual sanity (good), well, I thought that was beneath you John 😐
Such pastiche is the realm of the intellectually dishonest, or perhaps a fool, dullard, or worse…
In my statement, Well, it appears that a singular Age Of Enlightenment was about *all* humanity could *hope* for…, one could replace *hope* with wish/long/fight, ie pragmatically realize, given the limits of human nature, to escape self-induced trances and/or Collective EG0ic Madness (as exhibited by *all* evidence over recorded history)…
To point, I *now* fully understand that conditions which manifested the Age Of Enlightenment , in the 18th century, probably will never be replicated for humanity, allowing the tyranny of *evil* to run unopposed, as is clearly *now* the case.
If you don’t want/long/*hope* for a better outcome for innocent humanity, which at present is thrashing about in a nonstop state-of-war, greed, vanity & hubris, well then I pity you, my friend…
Presently it seems those that *should* be awake/enlightened “leaders” are trapped in a reactionary *loop*, combining conventions of EG0ic ideation with *hopeless* focus/obsession on *The Problem* (EVIL), unaware, ignoring of scoffing at *The Solution* (GOOD), never escaping the “EG0 Complex”, with most devolving into the “Shadow Complex” (as Jung defined), which precludes an environment where the Loving, Healing, Creative Power of The Infinite could restore Spiritual Sanity within enough *men* to actually turn the tide…
The only right and legitimate way to such an experience is, that it happens to you in reality and it can only happen to you when you walk on a path, which leads you to a higher understanding.
You might be led to that *goal* by an act of grace or through a personal and honest contact with friends, or through a higher education of the mind beyond the confines of mere rationalism…
I am strongly convinced that the evil principle prevailing in this world, leads the unrecognized spiritual need into perdition, if it is not counteracted either by a real religious insight or by the protective wall of human community.
An ordinary man, not protected by an action from above and isolated in society cannot resist the power of evil, which is called very aptly the Devil. But the use of such words arouse so many mistakes that one can only keep aloof from them as much as possible ~ Carl Jung (In his last year)
