Science Delusions

Cognitive Dissonance writes occasionally/exclusively at Zero Hedge. He seems to get better all the time.

excerpt:

If we fail to seek our inner knowing to effectively counterbalance the obviously subversive and manipulative external forces that are busily (re)constructing our ever changing, but still very narrow worldview, we become entirely dependent upon that external affirmation to confirm and inflame the internal dysfunction that results from our constant immersion within the insanity. Simply put we go mad, but still remain quite functional in an insane asylum sort of way. Just because I’m crazy doesn’t mean I’m stupid or unable to productively interact with others in our mad world.


This internal dysfunction, our inner insanity, aggravates and perpetuates the external manipulation by way of our collective actions in an endless positive feedback loop of escalating collective madness until finally it exhausts itself in a crescendo of war, starvation, deprivation and death. Our inner madness feeds the external madness which feeds the internal and so on.

Long article so I

Long article so I skimmed.
This article consequently brings up another point. Through public schools, children at early ages are exposed to 'democratic learning'. They are always put into groups as classes, grades, test percentiles, etc. They are never allowed to learn on their own or through exploration, always force fed standardized material that "everyone" can learn, not your son or daughter. It is the teachers job to teach 20-30 people, not your child. After I finished my masters I started realizing how big of a joke public school was and what I was exposed to during "group learning" in that time. The ZH article doesn't mention it by name but that is exactly what it is addressing.

Bump for love! :)

I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out.
