    It’s never ending isn’t it? Interesting how I have such a clear and good view of the situation that these people over here are being stupid and small minded.

    The guy in the video is pointing out so many coincidences about how people are excluding this information in order to come to positions about their own information, I don’t even know what the hell the guy the point he’s really making.

    How easy is it to look at all the media news from a certain privilege to stand point of clarity of truth and point to how everyone else is wrong and incorrect in there a particular way that they scoop up and present the truth.

    It’s so petty and divisive. It is though he’s pointing at everyone else to show how they are being petty and divisive —but of course he’s not!

    Of course he has the one in Tru ClearVision for the world!

    I don’t even know what he saying I listen to about 10 or 15 minutes of it and all he’s doing is rambling on about how all these people are stupid. As if he’s like this vacuous presence of spiritual purity that has an opinion that is more than opinion, that is more than selective or is otherwise selecting what is true.

    It’s such a low level of analysis is kind of nauseating. Lol.

    Sorry.

    The truth is is that human beings do stupid shit and then they stand back and justify it by whatever means makes sense to them. There is no reducing it to some absolute truth that God is telling us or some universal goodness is directing a chosen people to what is the best path for this great and powerful God ordained America.

    When you look closely at any situation even those that pose themselves his goodness, such domains are so filled and saturated with such contradiction it’s ridiculous to have videos like this of some great conspiracy is if the left is doing this in the right is doing this and…

    Wow.

    I mean, the guy has got a pull his head out of the sand of his own vision.

    Of course Christians are being killed by Muslims, but Christians are being killed by so many other people and the same with Muslims in the same with Buddhist and the same with Tibetans and Chinese and Iranians and any group of people that you point to being targeted or killed or whatever.. it’s ridiculous to think that there is some sort of “left “or “right“ agenda that is purposefully shadowing or neglecting some larger truth for the purpose of this great evil conspiracy or whatever the fuck.

    OK I’m done.

    I just feel like I was kind into watching a video and then I clicked over and watched a couple of the other videos.

    Such small mindedness. I feel like I was hopped.

      The inhumanity of people against one another astounds me at many different levels. People like this guy are sociopaths intent on murder from someplace deep inside their hearts. There is no way to predict or stop these kinds of attacks.
      Sometimes I think the authorities purposefully miss these types when pushing some kind of social agenda like racial hatreds,religious conflict, or more gun control. Just a guess on my part.
      The first question I ask when these events happen is who benefits, and that usually is someplace close to the truth, or at least some semblance of it. I have never hated anyone enough to kill them, but would in self defense or to protect my family.
      These people who kill to get attention or because of some deeply held hatreds, I will never understand. The terrorists who slaughter civilians because they hate the politics of that country the civilians live in. They are angry because of foreign intervention. I get that, then attack the invaders or the politicians who send them. Don’t kill innocent civilians because the invaders are bad and that’s what they did. You lower yourself and your cause to those you profess to despise. It is a vicious circle.
      In the end violence begets violence, whether you do it or just enable it.
      End of rant. Thanks for reading and posting. So much better than a like.

        I’m glad you take my comment for what it is worth. Even if it might sound like I’m being a butt head. 😆. I agree that the media appears biased even though they want to present them selves as if they are not. But fundamentally big media outlets exist to make money. And yeah; I was even listening to an NPR show yesterday, and they were talking about swastikas, and incident of kids displaying that symbol in various strangely innocuous Ways; and the show was basically commenting about anti-Semitism and how these kids need to be educated but also held responsible for their racism.

        And I thought it was interesting because Native American peoples use the symbol of the swastika as a holy and sacred symbol. And NPR mentioned nothing about how that symbol is just a simple and can be used in a number of ways, in this example it’s a symbol for the hatred of Jews but on the other side of it it’s a symbol for life and growth. But it is interesting that the whole conversation was around anti-Semitism and they didn’t bring up anything about how the American native Indians are trying to make an effort to recontextualize that symbol..

        Or how about the issue with the Lincoln Memorial with the Trump supporters and the Native American who came over there and then the big outcry of how racist the kids were. And then the backlash of a little some sort of larger story that it was actually the Native American who was inciting the problem and then actually he’s a drunk and a liar. And so now everyone supposed to apologize to the kids for calling them racist. To me it just goes to show that the liberal media, while attempting to somehow show our systematic racism in America really does not comprehend the notion, and is more concerned about just being the opposite of the perceived conservative whatever.

        The fact of the matter here is that those kids were racist. And while it may not be their fault, they should be held responsible as well as their chaperones that were urging them on for their complicity with systemic racism. The idea that this Native American is a drunk and a liar is a typical white answer that’s been going back for two 300 years to anyone of color who says anything against a white person. It just shows how the media is just as fucked up as any individual person and their own opinions.

        And then also I was going to say to you, personally I think what we’re dealing with the in the world is not some sort of “great spirit of goodness” where people are evil or something because they get influenced by this or that bad influence. I mean, if this indeed can’t be the case, but I think it’s more a case of numbers.I don’t think this site is getting worse I just think it’s getting bigger and I think that given any particular amount of human beings per capita there’s going to be a certain amount of people who don’t fit in and have this kind of diversion and kind of screwed up antisocial outlook on reality.

        I think it’s just part of being human: where I was when there was only 1 million people in the world then maybe there were 100 people who are just ethically screwed up; but when there’s 1 billion, now there’s 10,000 people who are screwed up. But not only that, the saturation of media coverage makes it appear as if somehow society is going to crap because now everyone can be heard and even the screwed up people. I don’t think society is getting worse; I think it’s just numbers.

        Anyways that’s my rant. 🙃😜

        I try my level best to not attack a persons deeply held belief systems. They are very personal and individual regarding many factors in our lives.
        The line should be drawn at violence, hatred, and prejudice, per Webster not the social justice version of those words. I enjoy reading your rants and liked your postings. Do you like listening and reading Jordan Peterson?

        I have watched a few of Peterson’s lectures/talks. I’m about 65/35 against I’d say on him. But I like he’s got a alternate opinion.

        I am still in the early stages of studying his work and so far have a favorable opinion of him. I lean more toward self educated people as myself. I attended college for years but learned much more in the workplace and from reading.
        I still try to find value in everyone’s beliefs and opinions. Keep an open mind, per se.

        Yes. I am totally self taught in philosophy. I am now in school to be a counselor. But The conference is Religion dept. the topic is “Pessimism and negativity in religion”. Toronto is where Peterson works. I didn’t even know! Lol.

        A strange coincidence. I am a Christian, just not a fan of organized religion. Too much money, corruption,and control. Just like the government.
        Hope it is a good learning experience for you.

        Sometimes I come off strong towards Christian analyses. But. It could be because I’m expecting to be hit hard back. But I am not anti-religion in general. Thanks for keeping an open mind.

        An open mind is the key to learning. Anyone with critical thinking skills is interesting to me. Regardless of their belief systems.

        Zizek is my dude. Interestingly enough, they accepted my paper at the conference in Toronto. And in it I actually mention briefly the polemics that Peterson and Zizek embody in my opinion. And then I find out that they are actually putting on a debate at the end of that conference. Lol. It was kind of ironic. I hope someone YouTube‘s records their debate because I think it’ll be interesting.

        I will make it a point to look into his work. You have tweaked my curiosity.

        My personal opinion, again just from watching maybe 2 hrs worth of his various lectures, is that he is not fully grasping some philosophical elements he is employing but And then takes them toward his points. But that’s just me.

        I get that. Consider that time constraints are many times an impediment to debate of complex issues. Perhaps dissecting the debates into smaller bits.
        The podcasts tackle a wide range of topics with some depth, but not enough to satisfy my curiosity. I prefer reading when possible.
