Is there any relationship between guns per capita and the restrictions that various governments have...
GaryWitt comments on Jul 26, 2021:
An interesting observation. I won’t argue cause and effect but I do see the correlation. I suspect strict lockdowns and restrictive gun laws are simply the joint product of a statist mindset.

GaryWitt comments on Jul 23, 2021:
Kottke has always been one of my favorites. The album notes on one of his early albums describes his voice as sounding like “goose farts on a muggy day.” Gotta love someone that self-deprecating.
Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy ?

BLM Issues Statement Of Support For Cuban Communist Dictatorship, Blames US For Communist FAILURE - ...
GaryWitt comments on Jul 15, 2021:
I suspect the MSM doesn’t view this as newsworthy, so most people will remain unaware of the BLM position. Still, it’s interesting to compare BLM’s reaction to the Cuban demonstrations with its reaction to black on black crime in Chicago and elsewhere. Outrage vs. Crickets.
Tucker Carlson made up a childhood story to smear teachers []
GaryWitt comments on Jul 15, 2021:
The article appears to be pay-walled. But her denial that she expressed her politics strains credulity. In this “he said, she said,” I’m inclined to believe Carlson, mainly because I know several people who have had the same experience elsewhere, with teachers refusing to teach basics.
We are where we are, but this is complicated and I don't know the answer. Any thought?
GaryWitt comments on Jul 6, 2021:
If I’m doing this right 5 nmol/L = 144 ng/dL, which is well above the average level for women of 15 to 70 ng/dL. That means a trans athlete can have more than twice the “high end” normal. How is that fair? Also, note that testosterone levels as such do not define gender. Chromosomes do.

I'm trying to figure out what to do with this conversation.
GaryWitt comments on Jul 1, 2021:
This is the most recent Jordan Peterson podcast. It came out Monday 6/28 and has a duration of about two and a half hours. I haven’t gone through the video but the total time matches the podcast, so I doubt it has been edited. The podcast is described as “A Conversation so Intense it Might as well be Psychedelic.” So in that spirit my advice would be to take enlightenment where you find it.

Nice frock.
Ideals are peaceful.
GaryWitt comments on Jun 11, 2021:
I don’t disagree, but I also don’t believe “legality equals power” is a useful analysis. In a free society legality comes from the power of argument rather than force or intimidation. If you supplant argument with force then the result is authoritarianism, and freedom is nullified. The Law becomes an arbitrary device for control rather than a rational path toward conflict resolution.

The last paragraph is interesting. “A new order of things” seems to be erupting today despite the difficulties predicted by Machiavelli. Perhaps because the forces behind it were first stirred a century ago.

GaryWitt comments on May 20, 2021:
Of course it’s no one’s business. Now please tell that to the LGBTQ community bent on thrusting (yes, thrusting) their sexuality into the heterosexual community’s face and insulting straight people with terms like cis and binary. Many years ago I lived in San Francisco. I recall that the homosexuals were mostly respectful of the heterosexuals and vice versa. That balance has most emphatically disappeared, and not as the result of anything the heterosexual community has done.

GaryWitt comments on May 11, 2021:
Not sure if this is part of your point but that picture of the trans-species dragon woman makes me wonder where in history this sort of dementia has occurred before. I suspect there has been similar insanity throughout history but today the available technology brings an artificial sense of reality to the delusion. Then it occurred to me that technology has served in large part to facilitate the notion that we are now “untethered” from history. And biology. We’re not, of course, but it’s now easier to pretend we are; whether by means of surgery or virtual reality or outrageous government spending.
How evil of them! ;) []

I like the progression here. It shows that Picasso “mastered the rules” before he broke them. I just finished reading the first chapter of Jordan Peterson’s Beyond Order. He asserts that this mastery—and respect—is a necessary prerequisite for meaningful creative expression. Without it, the result would be mere scribbling.

GaryWitt comments on Apr 19, 2021:
So lemme get this straight: Soave is objecting to a government imposed mandate that he views as oppressive, arbitrary, and capricious. Olbermann is defending that same oppressive, useless mandate. But he doesn’t (and can’t) deny that it’s an affront to liberty. So Soave is the fascist???? We should mock the aforementioned Olbermann.
We rewrite history because we feel we have to.
GaryWitt comments on Apr 9, 2021:
It seems to me the current revisionist efforts (The 1619 Project, destruction of statues and monuments, etc.) are neither compelled nor aimed at brushing up our appearance in the mirror. Quite the opposite in fact. They demonize the past, demean the present, and demoralize the future. They amount to sabotage, for the promotion of an ideology that has been shown time and again to be repressive, illiberal, and ultimately murderous.

GaryWitt comments on Apr 2, 2021:
Two Buddhist monks—one old, one young—were walking along a path and came to a stream. A beautiful woman paced up and down the bank as if wondering what to do. She explained to the monks that her home was on the other side. The older monk offered to carry her across on his back, and she agreed. When the three of them got to the other side, the monk set her down carefully, she thanked him and went home. The two monks then continued down the path. After an hour, the young monk said, “She was quite beautiful, wasn’t she?” The older monk paused a moment and said, “Oh, the woman. I set her down on the bank of the stream. You apparently have carried her all this way.”

I think this was recorded prior to the onset of his health problems. His reaction points to the absolute enormity of the consequences that follow a genuine belief in that connection between the narrative to which he refers and objective reality. For anyone struggling to understand and find Truth this is an incredible gift that comes with an almost unbearable burden. This may be one source of his anxiety in fact.

At the same time I try not to care about things that are beyond my control. These include other people’s thoughts and actions, especially as they relate to my own life. Both are difficult—the caring and the not caring—but the latter more so.

GaryWitt comments on Feb 14, 2021:
The common law relating to libel, slander, and incitement (including the so-called “fighting words” doctrine) has developed over more than a century and incorporates generations of experience. It is not black and white but neither is it unduly complex for those who take a little time to understand it. Moreover it works; respecting liberty while requiring responsibility. Unfortunately, it has been tossed aside by people who seek power and have no respect for the rights of others. As a result, it seems necessary today to advocate for absolute freedom in order to show that political correctness, censorship, and cancel culture are wrong.

No. The first presumes that tech companies have a monopoly on truth. They don’t. The second would provide tech companies with additional power to enforce their monopoly on truth. That’s wrong. And the third uses a false premise, that threats are the result of misinformation. They are not. Threats are a way of achieving power. When argument is met with censorship, discussion is reduced to a question of power. That’s the Marxist narrative. It must be debunked by an insistence on dialogue rather than forced silence, whether by deletion or regulation.

Willful ignorance, not only of the circumstances surrounding his health concerns, but more importantly of his underlying message and intellectual approach. Fear is certainly an element as well. They seem to have grown a shell that they believe will protect them from undesirable truths. And their baseless condemnation of JP almost precludes my compassion for them.
