Morally Justifiable

Morally Justifiable!
What a can of worms bullshit semantic expression FFS.

Morally justifiable 
to kill?
to go to war?
to abort?
blah blah blah


Just Google "morally justified" and go down deep and dark into the rabbit hole.

The stench of verbal diarrhoea is unmanageable and unbearable.

All the self-righteousness and completely TWISTED rationalisation and many other Freudian DEFENCE mechanisms go in full gear on ATTACK.

Again I feel compelled to quote Pratchett here:

“All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."
REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE."Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES."So we can believe the big ones?"YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING."They're not the same at all!"YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED."Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"MY POINT EXACTLY.” ― Terry Pratchett, Hogfather


I can hear "THEM" already foaming at the mouth all turning into Vicky Pollards Yeah But...No But...yeah butt....no butt...

"The BIBLE says this and the BIBLE says that and there is no just and blah blah blah except me the self-righteous racist rapist prick here."

It never ends and the USA seem to be an extremely fertile ground for that foaming gibberish self-righteousness, self- righteous until they get caught as always with their hands in the cookie jar or with their pants down and then they come back crawling begging for forgiveness since there is a shitload of money to be made telling others what to do.

But it is the same everywhere, everyone of them, 

ALL of US really including Atheists.  

Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Indigenous or Shintoist 

all in the same bag of lies and myths and made up stories thought to be "true"

A LIE IS A LIE IS A LIE.

and as said before

A MYTH IS A MYTH IS A MYTH.

I was thinking about that just the other day and my own dichotomy and cognitive dissonance 

(mix that with my cognitive dissociation and there you go) 


on how I love the HAKA as a performance but I hate all myths. Whether it's a Maori myth or Christian myth or a Babylonian myth or Greek Myth 


they are all LIES all made up stories.

But then again as Camus had to face and Pratchett tries to explain  it is quite hard if not totally impossible to live life without a single delusion.

So what is a man to do? 

Wherewithal shall an old man find his way?

Forgive the lack of PC here.


Eat and drink and be merry for tomorrow ye shall die 

seems to sum it all up.

Question EVERYTHING.

“Resist much, obey little.” 

and I could quote a shitload of Whitman here and even find something I question and resist even in his sayings like: 

“Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.” 

to which I would answer like Pontius Pilate

WHAT IS TRUTH? 

or as I prefer it ALETHEIA the absence of concealment.


“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large -- I contain multitudes.” ― Walt Whitman


“O Me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; Of the endless trains of the faithless—of cities fill’d with the foolish; Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?) Of eyes that vainly crave the light—of the objects mean—of the struggle ever renew’d; Of the poor results of all—of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me; Of the empty and useless years of the rest—with the rest me intertwined; The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life? 


Answer.


That you are here—that life exists, and identity; That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.” ― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Out of Boredom

Words Words Words 


Eu-thanasia!

Honour!

Pride!

Duty!

Semantics 
are really fucked up.



The shit people say through Freudian defence mechanisms especially rationalisation, is
prolly the ULTIMATE original SIN.

Here is another word:

SIN!

MISSING THE FUCKING MARK! 
WELL WHO THE FUCK DOESN'T?

And then some smart asshole comes to put down rules on you and get power over you because you missed the fucking mark AS IF he never did. 

Even more they tag you genetically 
to an ORIGINAL MISSING the FUCKING MARK 
that one of your Ancestor did 

Some Mitochondrial Eve  180,000 years ago, 
or some Y-chromosomal Adam some 275,000 years ago

How these two ever fucked now is beyond me 

It is as complicated as to where the fuck did Cain get his wife.

Now back to Euthanasia now I was joking around with my brother last night saying

I used to say the first day I shit myself will be my time to go now.

Well it is a little more complicated than that now innit?

Shitting yourself sure hurts your pride and honour and your nose sometimes and it is undignified as fuck but it doesn't HURT.

One can wear Depends for years now you know? :) 

The acceptable reason for euthanasia I suppose would be chronic pain of moreover getting fucking tired of the chronic pain but where does one draw the line it is always a very personal call.

Anyway hard to decipher the line at times between euthanasia and suicide both have connotations of evil attached to them especially suicide which is at time well part of a decent euthanasia.

Funny how most religions (like governments) talk against suicide. 

The main reason being for both of them that they are always worried about the COST of it 

not to YOU but to THEM of course.

You can't control a dead disciple, it is no fucking good 
and a dead taxpayer is a prophet of no profit.

While I am here babbling obliges, it is funny how the "great" intellects attack Islam especially and some will attack Christianity and some might dare to touch Judaism but many scientists have a weak spot for Buddhism as if it was different than the others.  

FFS! Speaking of rationalisation again.

Sam Harris,  Dr. Marsha Linehan, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Leonard Cohen and so many more.

It seems to me that Buddhist countries are as ignorant and hysterical as all the others and they too will try to sell you some shite, plastic idols and what not: riots, wars, ignorance, self-immolation FFS and so many other practices but still you can associate yourself to Buddhism and pretend to be cool not like the others.

Anyway I am back to my old blog here

A MYTH IS A MYTH IS A MYTH,

When it comes to my iconoclastic behaviour, 

I break all idols.


too many words already

end of babble for now

Sheep and Apes


You're sitting quietly at a meeting somewhere and someone is retiring or it is his birthday and the most jovial semi drunk member of your group starts:

For he's a jolly good fellow ♪♫♪♫
blah blah blah 


and you mutter under your breath 


OH FUCK NO> PLEASE DON'T > STOP IT RIGHT NOW!


CAPITALS because one can mutter under his breath quite loudly now! :)

You resist and feel the immense pressure to join in for fear of being looked at as the ODD ONE when you well fucking know that the sheep are the odd ones for sure.

I was just saying this week I wonder who is the fucker who started the habit of clapping during ball reviews at tennis. 

Everybody was sitting there quietly watching the big screen and then one day one fucker with one or two too many cheap expensive beer started clapping and guess what?  

You wouldn't be caught dead not clapping now 'cause that is what people do.

It's like singing the national anthem or Happy Birthday those kind of simian behaviour should be kept really where they belong:

in the choir practice and exhibition. 


If you are dying to sing in unison learn the fucking Requiem for fuck sake.

Confutatis Fucka me and all that Jazz.

I know it's Voca Me but I prefer MY version! :)

Fucka Me Cum Benedictus. or more appropriately

Fucka Me Cum Maledictus.

This is how mass hysteria and lynching and foaming at the mouth mutilation and murder happens with our simian habits so the less we have the better we are.

We are so modelled to fit in it's downright crazy.  

From family to school to job to retirement even all peaceful Elois letting the Morlocks rule the world. when we don't turn into Morlocks ourselves.

I prefer the Whitman approach meself when it comes to simian habits:

“Resist much, obey little.” A
"re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul"

end of rant for now

Social Media and Old Age :)

There is a strange thing going on these days well strange to my old eyes anyway.

It is the appropriating of any generic whiny poor little misunderstood betrayed suffering me and making it your own as if it was your creation and your WHOLE life story.

One reads something and says oh yeah that is so ME and shares it right away when and where if one started to think and analyse for a second one could see it is a generic saying a bit like a horoscope and does not identify one's whole life story.

maybe it's a millennial thing. I totally fail to get millennials it must be a sign of the ages.

Nothing new under the sun.

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door
 Mike & The Mechanics - The Living Years Lyrics 

Every generation
Blames the one before
OR THE ONE AFTER!

It just seems to make it hard to figure out one's personality when the only Simulacra and Simulation 
(to quote Baudrillart here)
is a bunch of lame glued together memes.


Not sure what the future of Social Medias will be.
I am afraid that Charlie Brooker might be our own contemporary prophet of Doom 

in his canonical Black Mirror.

Speaking of Black Mirror and Millennials I was horrified by this recently.


It's the same thing on the train though. Everyone completely absorbed by their black mirror. 

Mine is usually in my pocket or in my bag LOL attached to my earbuds to block out the rest of the noisy world anyway, for the few who are not glued to their black mirror.


I find Facebook more and more depressing and from a discussion I had just this week with my doctor I am not the only one apparently.  

I stay off Twitter and am way too old for Instamatic anyway.

Another good example was this Fox app or some other TV app advertisement and this rich spoiled little girl who was totally bored and absolutely rude to her boyfriend because she had seen everything on the bus here and there and did not shy away from showing her boredom

( reminds me of that fake millennial ad on Subway Chicken too lol yawning at boring chicken)

My own adolescence was absolutely troubled and messed up don't get me wrong.

I went from hash, to mescaline, to acid, to cranking meth,  back to mescaline by the tea spoon in no time and I ended up in a detox centre and homeless by the time I was 20 

but STILL I am quite thankful (even though I had no choice in the matter) that I am not a teenager in this day and age. (even though today's teenagers would hardly qualify as millennials I suppose)

Anyway here is my old fart new rant for today.

Ciao for now



Death will be the Great Equaliser!

More empty sounds

After all it is my "name",
 my "handle" :
kenophon


What is a binary number in Greek now? 

Because to be fair I should be called empty binary numbers since this is what a blog is.

so here it goes again.

Maybe I am a psychopath but why in the world would I bother reading about another school shooting?

Jordan Peterson who says he hasn't watched news in donkeys years is fascinated by all this dark madness and so am I to a point.  

Trying to analyse the shadow and all and our dark repressed side.

It just gets tedious after a while, 17 in less than two months and to which ones do you pay more attention now?

As I was just saying I have always tended to swim against the tide so no Game of Thrones for me or Housewives series.  

I was a bit disappointed when a big intellect chatting with J.P. said she was a fan.

No needs for news to know that 
the US of A are slightly fucked up 
and different from other "civilised" nations.  

Money talks and bullshit walks 

and the solution is not in a foreseeable future.

What I can't wait for now is a TV that totally skips the ads even if I have to record the thing and watch it later so I don't ever have to see that Gina's face again (even in fast forward) especially when I am having dinner.  Yucks.

Googlebox and reactions youtube viral videos? 

What is the world coming to? 

What is next? 

Back to real gladiators?

This habit of pitting nasty vicious people against so-called nice people to get grinding of the teeth and foaming of the mouth of the hoi polloi reminds me a lot of the wrestling world.

Them producers must travel a lot to scout the scum of the earth.

And then again people get all up in arms for a short time when 17 kids die in a western country and at the same time don't give a flying fuck about a thousand baby's arms  flying up in the air from drones especially if they are brown. (the kids not the drones)

We're all FUBAR and hypocrites 

bottom line methinks at times.

Speaking of hypocrites LOL 

Jordan Peterson is always foaming at the mouth at Justin Trudeau over this and that, the main reason being I think that Peterson at heart is an Albertan, a rich Albertan at that and with the failure of the NDP having no chance of ever winning an election is therefore just another Conservative like Harper and his "let's bring on the Armageddon" mates. Even intelligent people are chained by their environment.

He was harping over Trudeau deciding to make the cabinet 50/50 ration of males and females when the electorate has only elected 25% of females 

stating mindbogglingly 

that a cabinet was chosen on competence??? 

FFS? 

Really?

 In what world? 

On what planet?

Nepotism is and has always ruled 

and oligarchy and plutocracy and what not.  

Just look at your beloved Russia for instance 

or just south to the US

 or any other race with an apparently higher IQ average.

And when he becomes rich and famous 
and he needs a personal assistant 

did he have a competence test? 

FUCK NO!!! 

Guess who he hired ? 

Well his own daughter of course 

because that his the way things work in a hierarchy 
when you're not a lobster.

End of rant and small blog for now :P

Socratic approach to Jordan Peterson

trying to clear my mind on a subject I know nothing about
therefore the Socratic part.

Been pondering on the new icon Jordan Peterson lately and how he sounds too good to be true.

At first I must say as I am known to I was quite fascinated with him, nearly obsessed, but without going total splitting on him I always step back to have a wider look.

I have many suspicions about him that I can't put my finger on and I am certainly not equipped for a match of wit or so called debate with a high intellectual even though well read looks interesting and fascinating the fact remains that many if not most well read people are still asshole or FOS as I often say, Full Of Shit.

Obviously he does have some strong biases on the way he read the Russsians, 
Solzhenitsyn / Soljenitsyne /Soljenitsin
a
nd Fyodor Dostoyevsky / Fiodor Dosto├»evski 
 (I wish the world could agree on ONE spelling of Russian names)
The very fact that he named his daughter Mikhaila after Gorbachev is quite revealing actually.

Plus we are talking authors that went through the wringer, through a lot of suffering and one of them even had a syndrome named after him but the name was later changed if I got all this right. When I first googled Dosto it gave me the Dosto syndrome which sent me here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geschwind_syndrome

So basically taking all of Fyodor's preaching at face value has the same psychological value as taking all of the writing of Paul the Apostle at face value considering he too fell off his horse and more than likely was manic before he became delusional with temporal lobe damage as well.

Trying to keep my thoughts together here there are a lot of alarm bells that rings when it comes to JP.  

For one thing as much as he hates the expression white privilege, it is so fucking obvious that he would not have the same standing if he was an Asian woman let's say or even an Indian teacher.

And his high praise of IQ is at best laughable as so many high IQ's are utter fucking morons and psychopathic assholes without even mentioning the Unabomber.  

Trudeau the father could have probably wiped the floor with him and I am sure the two would not agree.

JP's association with Jonathan Haidt bugs me to as I have made my position clear about Haidt a few times. 

Also his risible idea that one organises a cabinet or a government with competent people FFS 
wake up and smell the coffee 
and look around you.  

A competent Knesset would be such an oxymoron, 

the American "cabinet" is a fucking joke of oligarchy 
yet JP praises Trump as an "intelligent" man.  

Sure Justin might not be perfect but Harper was a fucking disaster 
so in the choice between two evils 
I would choose the lesser. 

Of course rich self sufficient people always want the right conservative to win in their lobster hierarchy.

Harper transformed Canada known as a peacekeeper nation into America's bitch and sent hundred of young Canadians to die needlessly with shoddy equipment because of course the rich hierarchy would not waste money of saving POOR motherfucker's life.  

And Trudeau brought the old age pension BACK to 65 IIRC
which means nothing for self sufficient rich fucks but means the world to the thousands of poor motherfuckers struggling out there every day just to survive Those people who cannot afford houses, luxuries, and flying first class with all expenses paid.


So self righteous self made men always seem to fall for that shit. 

Even the great Hitchens fell for it and well discussing with Harris is like giving you two options between the right and the right.

Speaking of also his unapologetic "Christianism" is bizarre at best for an intellectual and a "scientist" even though many shy away from calling Psychology a science. 

All his Jungian reading has made him mad to paraphrase Festus here.

Suddenly, Festus shouted, "Paul, you are insane. Too much study has made you crazy!" Acts 26:24

Plus there is more to adhering to religion than intellect there is a tremendous social emotional pressure to fit in especially if you wanna go up in that so-called hierarchy needless to remind you that there never was an atheist American President top of that hierarchy bullshit pile.

So here it is in a few words just trying to collect my thoughts together on the subject by writing some notes down.

While I am here on the subject it surprises me that the great intellect psychologist has not diagnoned himself as bipolar recognising the depression while tending to forget the obvious manias.

Don't get me wrong I like the man for the moment considering viral memes go stale at the speed of light in this crazy age.  

He seems to walk the walk as much as he talks the talk but still this statistical cold truth bugs me as if it has always been like this and it should always be. 

Let's have war and famines and poverty and backstabbing fight to the top with all the corruption and free for all involved.  As cold and unethical as let's say making people drunk for some study.

Most top of hierarchy people as far as I am concerned are psychopathic criminals where the ends justifies the means 

even though JP tries to point out clearly that it should be done right 

his young crazy followers don't give much of a fuck and continue sending death threats to all who oppose him or them 

and if that is NOT FUCKING CHAOS well nothing is.

I understand he feels that things are somewhat surreal since the infamous interview but I think he might have done more good back in the teaching and clinical hours day which he can't afford anymore since he is too busy making insane amounts of money rehashing the same old bullshit over and over all over the world.

He is paid more in an hour than the poor fuckers Harper sent to die were paid in a year.

Unfair of me you would say? 

O well my opinions never carried much weight obviously but thanks to freedom of speech he cherishes so much I am entitled to them.

"You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

P.S. Why focus only on western Judeo Christian Mythology now it seems so parochial so provincial Why not the older other mythical stories. 

Greek mythology has thousands of lessons, 

so would Shakespeare really.  

Oriental mythology is widely unexplored and probably funner. 

These old genocidal incestuous 700 B.C. old stories are certainly not the best example now?  

As IF they were ever real FFS? 
Adam and Eve? 
Cain and Abel? 
Lot and his lot etc.

It seems to me such a waste of time to study so many lies.

End of Rant for the mo just glad I deciphered some of that in my mind with ones and zeros now written and posted.

Story for my children

After watching Chocolat for the umpteenth time recently I started having Hot Chocolate now in the morning and even though I am not even close of making it half as good as la Binoche did it reminded of of some good times I had a long time ago.

Back in 1978 early winter your mum and I used to go for long walks in the snow to errrrr cool our hormones mainly LOL

And we discovered this really nice Colombian Cafeteria miles away.  

They just had this awesome awesome Hot Chocolate served straight out of a copper pot into a huge bowl made of real chocolate and subtle spices and all for the price of any regular hot chocolate anywhere.

After a long cold winter walk it was pure heaven I tell ya.

We were very very poor I think we just had had a huge raise on our weekly allowance from $2 to $5 each. 

So that was a huge $10 to spend between the both of us.


So we spent it on hot chocolates and
empanadas or enchiladas or what not they had.


One of the owners took a liking to us and
when we left he always gave us a huge bag of
Empanadas /Enchiladas/ WhatNots
FOR FREE
worth more than all we had bought on that night
while his partner gave him the evil eye LOL


Needless to say that business went tits up in no time 

but those were good times.
