WARNING! In the postmodern world where feelings trump reason, AIs will be given human-like rights. All it takes is an AI with a body of a 5-year old girl horribly abused by a pedophile.
We’re creating machines that not only has the likeness of the human mind but we’re also giving them corporeal forms that mimic our likeness. Now the genie is out of the bottle, like a toothpaste once squeezed out would never go back into the tube. So, we have to deal with it.
The socio-political argument that will be made (or is already being made) is: if the machine has the likeness of the human mind, we should give this machine human-like rights. Not to mention, should we have AI laws?
I’m very very weary of this topic and humanity as whole should tread lightly in addressing these issues. It’s a very very slippery slope.
All organisms (including humans) depend upon their accurate perception of reality in order to survive. Organisms that inaccurately perceive reality dies.
Societies that misjudge reality throughout history either died or are conquered. Armies that miscalculate the realities of the battle field are slaughtered. Individuals who perceived reality inaccurately paid the cost with their life. Civilizations that diverged from reality crumbled
In a chaotic post-truth, post-modern world and a relativistic society knowing reality [objectively] is the first casualty. The Truth is a commodity that is increasingly becoming rare.
Fake news is everywhere. There’s my facts vs your facts, where there should be just facts. Science when put in quotes, “science,” suddenly transforms into mere opinions.
It’s claimed that there’s no such thing as reality. It’s also claimed that there’s no such thing as truth. It’s also said that we live in a simulation and therefore nothing matters… people actually believe that!
The Russian Famine (1921-1922): an estimated 5 million people died. Peasants turned to cannibalism in order to survive. The cause of which are said to be multi-facetted–economic disturbance, World War I, The Russian Revolution, and disruption of The Russian Civil War and its communist policies. I think it's more of the latter that contributed to this famine. Communist policies that were enacted at the time are as follows:
WARNING: These photos are SHOCKING and disturbing to many. Proceed with the in mind. Here in lies the horrors of the 1920s Communist Russia famine in pictures...
In 1967 The CIA released a memo that coined the label "conspiracy theory" and "conspiracy theorists" to attack anyone who challenged the official narrative from the Warren Commission. It's interesting to note that the document is labelled "psych", for psychological operations or disinformation. It's also marked "CS copy" at the bottom, meaning "Clandestine Services" Unit.
This document was requested and released to The New York Times in 1976 via The Freedom of Information Act. Below is the CIA dispatch. Read it for yourself.
At first it was 'hacking" into the elections, then "interference" in the elections, then "meddling" with the elections, then "influencing" elections, and finally settling to Russians Trump-Russia "collusion" which got Trump into power...
That was 2016 and still going on at present. At the time of this writing we have NOT seen any direct evidence the Russia got Trump into office. And so the insanity goes on...
While we wait for direct evidence of Russian meddling let's go back in time (no pun intended) to see a real successful meddling in foreign elections as proclaimed so proudly by the US in Time Magazine back in 1996. Read it for yourself below
Why is this okay? Why is painting black people beheading white people okay? Judging by the insanity that was unleashed when Trump said Haiti is a shithole, I could almost assure you that painting Trump or his family holding a severed black head and a knife would almost be decried as racism. So why is this okay?
I think that we're getting a preview of what will happen to white people when they become the minority. What the liberals call racism of today will turn into South Africa style racism. I hope not, for their sake.
One of the most concerning documents that I've read lately is a document approved by the Minnesota Departnent of Education's council. The document dubbed as "Safe and Supportive Schools for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students," aims to provide a welcoming environment for "gender-nonconforming students." The "toolkit" stems from "a desire to combat bullying in schools" according to Human Right Commissioner Kevin Lindsey. It's also said that the document is a nonbinding guide.
What are we doing to our children? This political maneuver and other political maneuvers like this is not helping society. Mark my words, the transgender population will rise. Not because gender dysphoria is affecting more and more people but because political decisions like this are creating more transgender people.
Here's the full text of the infamous declassified Nunes Memo. A lot have been said before the release, it's time to read it for yourself. It's clear why the Republicans want this released and why the Democrats don't want it released. After a year of Russia collusion, this is what we get. This document shows clear biases against Donald Trump.
Is this document as irrelevant as the democrats and their cohorts makes it sound like? Answer is no. This document reveals to us the collusion between people against Trump. But it's also not the silver bullet that the Republicans and their cohorts say it is. The Nunes Memo is crack that lets us see the dark underbelly of The Deep State.
Canada's Bill C16 is that moment when neo-liberal ideology and unreason was codified into law. Not believing and saying anything against the gender theory and neo-liberal ideas of gender is now a crime. You are compelled to use pronouns and not say anything critical of the gender theory. Read Canada Bill C16 for yourself. See below.
Supporters of Canada Bill C16 assert that there's no such thing as men and women and that gender is a social construct. These people are trying to hijack language through pronoun use in order to gain political power.
WARNING! Graphic photos of a shithole country. For those who live in Haiti and for those who spent a significant amount of time in Haiti (especially those who lived through the hard times), these photos will not be shocking. It's just part of the milieu. But to those who don't know here are some shithole photos of Haiti.
Haitians hate thieves and when I say hate, I mean hate! I personally saw one of these Haitian stye justice. If you're a thief, don't get caught. You'll be lynched in the street. Even strangers who happen to pass by would chime in. The photo above might be a bit extreme, since it was taken during the time of the 2010 earthquake but it's not far from the norm.
