Superstition against Science

 

First there was Mussolini’s Pope, signing Lateran treaties with Il Duce in exchange for religious indoctrination and conditioning in government schools. Then Pacelli was elevated to papal infallibility as Hitler’s Pope. Today, at long last, Herr Gavin Schmidt of the Econazi Internationale has finally managed to secure a Pope of his own, and one evidently predisposed to revive that Holiest of all Inquisitions, no less. That’s progress!

Chamberlin’sThe Bad Popes” may be due for an added chapter soon. The Dark Ages were those centuries in which Europe was dominated by Protestant, Catholic and Mohammedan warfare, torture and superstition. Eight centuries later, James Clerk Maxwell organized Faraday’s and Coulomb’s research into the equations of electrodynamics. This work proceeded even as Britain bombarded China to preserve an outlet for opium grown by Indians, themselves reduced to near-enslavement, and while tax-and-spend advocates of extortionate protective tariffs in These States bombarded, shot, pillaged and burned neighbors whose laziness had made them dependent on the exploitation of chattel slavery.

Science, not suicidal superstition, wins

Science overcame superstition when the derivative was 2.1%–The Pill saved the Planet

Yet here we are, 1867 years after the invention of the Jesus myth and actual ex-scientists, now devote their efforts to the spread of mysticism and superstition. This same ex-scientist seeks, in addition to interfere with the electrical generation that has increased human life expectancy. Earth’s population has grown from two billion–when Christian prohibition enforcers shot beer smugglers in cold blood–to 7.5 billion less than 90 years later–when Christians send men with guns to shoot people for harvesting the “wrong” plants, and to jail doctors for offering a safe alternative to coathanger abortions.

The Catholic papacy fought to have the pill banned, and today its agents control politicians who deny the individual rights of women in backward countries. Pope Francis is the person most responsible every time a woman dies for lack of medical assistance with an unwanted pregnancy. Everything that could forestall a Malthusian catastrophe or make life possible on an overcrowded planet the infallible coot opposes. Still, the Vatican burns electricity like it was going out of style, while Puerto Rico is without power.

National Socialist Relics Today

Gott Mitt Uns!

The Common Good Before the Individual Good!

It’s been 78 years since the original National Socialist Germany invaded Czechoslovakia and Poland. What changed?
They surrendered as it became clear the Atomic Bomb would make socialist aggression a poor bet, and most National Socialists not captured joined the Soviet Socialist party to escape U.S. denazification. But Socialism’s Berlin Wall crashed and Germany turned to Ecological National Socialism (environmental purity replacing racial purity).

So November 7, 2017 brought to light a 550-pound bomb buried in Potsdam since the war. A 150-pound bomb was unearthed October 19, 2017 near a U.S. entangling alliance base. (Americans are also good at this business of not learning from past mistakes).  This was barely two weeks after 10,000 Berliners were evacuated over a different bomb. Another 60,000 had been evacuated a month earlier, in September. That was still fewer than the 70,000 evacuated over a bomb dug up in Frankfurt late August. A prison and environs were evacuated late June 2017 in Regensburg over a bomb weighing nearly 500 pounds. This was after a tenth the population of Hanover was evacuated that May because of a similar-size bomb discovered in March, shortly after old-school nationalsocialists protested the retaliatory bombing of Dresden (instead of ceasing hostilities and handing over Hitler, Goebbels, Eichmann, Goering and other altruist NSDAP partisans).

“So what about 2016?” I hear you ask. Augsburg was largely evacuated in celebration of Christmas after finding a bomb the size of an apartment block water heater earlier that December. Late that September another neighborhood was evacuated over a bomb found in Cologne. The Hannover airport was evacuated when an unexploded bomb was found late in May, and late in 2015 most of Germany was on bomb alert on account of toys produced by a different congregation of religious conservatives Germany has been importing like bananas. Every year, year after year, the bombs brought on by German religious conservatives turn up, and Germany is still nearly as mystical and socialist as in the ’30s and ’40s.

What is it about these religions that causes people to declare themselves God’s own Gestapo and initiate the use of deadly force against people within and without their borders? After 8 decades of evacuations over bombs not already dug up in the late 1940s, Germans still hang effigies of mythical dead mystics on their walls and embrace theologies that deny the evidence of thermometers to justify another Armageddon-is-Nigh wave of evangelical socialism. What is wrong with these people?

If you would like to stop tax dollars from sending men with guns to Germany, Africa, other Ottoman relics and religious kingdoms, consider voting libertarian. If you are curious about what communist, fascist and socialist governments in Latin America are up to, or need travel documents translated, ask a translator.

Tony Heller Wrecked my Theory

I follow a blog by an electrical engineer who writes code and graphs data. The delightful part is that the unaltered data graphs he produces do not agree with theories pompously put forth by Doomsday Cassandras. In fact, Tony Heller takes on the entire panoply of Millerite doomcrying by unemployable ex-scientists whose theories invariably require the initiation of force. And he does it as competently as Petr Beckmann did while still alive.

Petr Beckmann was a young electrical engineer working on the same project as physicist Arthur C. Clarke toward the end of WWII. As described in the novel “Glide Path,” with radio and radar they guided RAF bombers returning from Germany to land safely. Beckmann held a grudge against all socialist invaders of Czechoslovakia, and his delightful Access to Energy newsletter and book on nuclear safety weakened their efforts to trick Americans into disarming or crippling their own power plants. Watching RealClimateScience.com dismantle perpetrators of hoaxes is a delight.

Suddenly Heller comes up with these Zapruder frames of the Kennedy assassination showing what looks like a luminous circle. I tried, like others, to imagine they were sunlight reflecting off of fragments.  I had a personal stake in the thing not being real. After years of research on the Kennedy assassination I was working on a fiction novella requiring only two snipers. That bright dot was not at all consistent with my theory or partial manuscript, and would require rewrites and edits. Finally, the dot would not go away. It recalled another video looking northwest from the south side of Dealey Plaza in which a flash of light at the picket fence was surmised to be evidence of a shooter firing at the President from behind a flimsy fence. But my fictional theory required only two snipers. From its height, Occam and I could loftily look down theories requiring more than two assassins and scornfully dismiss that flash. But the troublesome shiny dot ruined my manuscript by introducing reasonable doubt.

How was I supposed to know that gunslingers fancied putting mercury in bullets? But people act on all sorts of wrong beliefs. Police rushed up the slope at the north end of the grassy bridge abutment, perhaps with good reason. Yes there are holes in mobster Files’ story, but none so large as the politicians’ theory that had prompted me to work out a different explanation. Reasonable doubt has now wrecked my story before it was ready to publish–luckily for me. I pity people like Gavin and Gore, whose published documendacities Mr Heller has unpityingly gored. But I can’t help noticing that none of them find fault with his arguments or dispute the unimbellished data he presents. They could show a little gratitude to someone able to correct their papers. After all Gottlob Frege had the good grace to thank Bertrand Russell for derailing his mathematical work. Unfortunately, Frege, like Gore, Gavin and wishful thinkers on the IIPC had already published their errors.

If you ever need an experienced translator of forensic reports, death certificates and autopsy results from Portuguese or Spanish, look me up. I also write fiction about politicians and such.

Government Intelligence Language Program

Mr Dooley, of the U.S. Office of the Director of Government Intelligence (DGI) has awarded a $10.7 million grant to a team of computer scientists at Tammany Hall University (THU) to create an information retrieval and translation system for languages that are not widely used around the world.

Teedy Rosenfeld, a computer science professor in THU’s School of Engineering, is leading the 20 members of the THUGrant research team to develop a system that can respond to inquiries typed in English based on documents written in so-called “low resource” languages, which means there is relatively little written material in these languages.

“The biggest challenge we’re going to have with this setup is that there’s not much data,” Teedy says. He expects the DGI will soon send his team information on a target language for testing the system.

He says that ultimately the intelligence agency is likely to choose languages for the project that may be spoken by millions of poor, dissolute, uncovered wretches but are not prevalent in written material, languages such as Esperanto, Loglan, Pig-Latin, Klingon, Newspeak and Ido.

Several Latin American State Science Institutes, supported by grants from such eleemosynary organizations as the UN, CIA, FATF, AML, TF, CFT, DNFBP, IRS-CID, INL, ICRG, GIABA, GAFISUD, FSRB, FIU, FinCEN, EAG, PIAB, OFBCI, DEA, and NSA, have been commended by the DGI. Together, our neighbors to the South are working on machine translations of Desesperanto in support of US efforts to export the Noble Experiment of Prohibition everywhere. Stay tuned…

Argentina’s Pope and the LP Open Arms policy

Reason replaces superstition

See the original article

Nicholas Sarwark recently commented on how Republicans hate libertarians, and are driving the few who still cling to God’s Own Prohibitionist party “into the arms of” the Libertarian Party. A similar thing is happening with The Church that once signed treaties with Mussolini to include Catholic dogma in government school curricula.

Reason writer Stephanie Slade commented recently on a “purported” pronouncement by the South American Pope to the effect that “libertarian” ideas (i.e. the initiation of force is wrong) are un-Catholic. This is certainly borne out by recent history. Since its publication in 1999, John Cornwell’s Hitler’s Pope has been translated into Portuguese and is accessible to Brazilian readers as predominantly Christian as Germany was in 1933. Catholic parishes have diminished by 12% in Europe since 1980. As a result, organized mysticism is naturally turning away from former nationalsocialist and fascist centers. It seeks money from former colonies and junta-style dictatorships, hence the non-European papa.

Yet the message out of the Italian Vatican is pure Mussolini-era European government control over trade and production. Instead of passé racial eugenics to breed a race of blonde altruists, emphasis has shifted to ecological nationalsocialism and environmental purity. This pope’s message is the same as that of an earlier European religious conservative: “The Common Good Before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz). The Vatican version is that “the climate is a common good”. These are the words of the spokesman for the revealed belief that men with guns must coerce physicians to force pregnant girls to choose between coerced reproduction and mutilation by coathangers—in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Exploiting faith and force to put a strain on the planet’s resources is job one of the Empire that set the Children’s Crusade afoot to throttle the accursed Saracen.  Crocodile tears over the fate of a forcibly overpopulated planet are apparently no longer welcoming little fishies in with gently smiling teeth.

And so we return to the fifth columnist tasked with infiltrating Reason, the libertarian magazine. Stephanie cannot realistically call for repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment to remove individual rights from women. Nor can she join the lynch mob agitating against the libertarian Non-Aggression Principle. The document was carefully crafted for political party purposes–for elections under the Constitution. Her meek attempts to straddle the issue by finding  a half-dozen self-proclaimed catholics not part of the papal lynch mob has backfired into pitchforks and torches pointed at her.

And this brings us back to Nicholas Sarwark. Sure enough, the Holy Father’s own self-appointed press secretary was quick to lead torches and pitchforks against the godless female apostate with this warning:

The incompatibility of Catholicism and libertarianism is a thing so obvious, if she fails to see it, it is not hard to conclude that she has drunk very deeply indeed at the well of libertarian ideology.

It is, as Pope Pius XI said, a “poisoned spring,” not a well, and the life-giving waters that Jesus gives are not for sale on the market.

For the record, Mussolini’s Pius XI had his say in 1931, when Ayn Rand was barely 27. This was two years after Pacelli was elevated to papal nuncio before becoming Hitler’s Pope. Just four years earlier Rand was filmed in The King of Kings. So Mussolini’s pope railed against repugnant libertarianism 40 years before the Libertarian Party was founded?

The important thing here is that the snottiness of coercive mystical populism is alienating a bright young intellectual into the arms of the Libertarian Party complete with non-aggression principle!  As Romish People’s Temple membership declines a percentage point per annum, the LP.org voting population is up 328% from four years ago. That vote share could increase if the Church elders try to stone Stephanie in the public square according to Christian and Moslem tradition.

If you seek to emigrate from a religious satrapy to Portugal, Canada, Australia or the U.S., you might need a certified translator to help with some documents.

 

 

 

 

Winston Smith, climate data rectifier

2+2 is 4

Search Google News for Orwell

Winston clicked ‘back numbers’ on the telescreen and called for the appropriate issues of the NY Times. The messages he had received referred to articles or news items which for one reason or another it was thought necessary to alter, or, as the official phrase had it, to rectify. For example, it appeared from one issue that Comrade Gore, in his speech before the election, had predicted that the North Pole would by now be ice-free. As it happened, not even atomic-powered ice-breakers could make any headway in the frozen Northwest Passage. It was therefore necessary to rewrite a paragraph of the comrade’s speech, in such a way as to make him predict something that had actually happened. Or again, another issue published the official forecasts of the output of wind generators in the fourth quarter of 2011. The real output was mostly birds, killed by the moving blades.

Fraud1999-2017

Today’s issue contained a temperature graph, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones. As for the third message, it referred to a very simple error which could be set right in a couple of minutes.

This process of continuous alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound-tracks, cartoons, photographs — to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Green Party and copied by the Democrats could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct, nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record.

Winston glanced across the hall. In the corresponding cubicle on the other side a fat, doughy-looking, dark-chinned man named Schmidt was working steadily away, with a folded newspaper on his knee and his mouth very close to the mouthpiece of the speakwrite. ***

 

Orwell’s 1984 was translated into most languages and, along with Anthem and Atlas Shrugged, fatally wrecked the growth of Fabian Socialism (INGSOC), National Socialism and International Socialism. Former socialist dupe George Orwell shows how predatory altruism preys on young and superstitious victims alike, until questioned as to its values and consequences. You can help repeal the force-initiating laws stealthily inserted into our laws by making a small contribution to the Libertarian Party.

Mysticism and Fascism

Altruistic nationalsocialism

Read the original 1929 Chicago Tribune article

Remember the Lateran Agreements? The Romish Church doesn’t, but newspapers record how King, Dictator and Pope entered into another Byzantine Tordesillas pact–this one to divvy up power over the population of Italy. By Mussolini’s decree, Italian schools were required to include Catholic indoctrination of children too young to resist such conditioning.

In laissez-faire France, so many could afford cars that a movement was afoot to ban collective transportation. A decade later, National Socialist tanks rolled into Catholic (and Protestant) France and replaced Liberté, Fraternité, Egalité with Travail, Patrie, Famille. Jewish families were packed off to 40,000 Nazi camps, but every Catholic or Protestant in Germany acted surprised to learn in May of 1945 that even a single such death camp had ever existed.

Here is the current pope of Rome’s endorsement of Ecological National Socialism:

“The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast.” For this reason, the ecological crisis is also a summons to profound interior conversion. It must be said that some committed and prayerful Christians, with the excuse of realism and pragmatism, tend to ridicule expressions of concern for the environment. Others are passive; they choose not to change their habits and thus become inconsistent. So what they all need is an “ecological conversion,” whereby the effects of their encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in their relationship with the world around them. Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience. (Laudato Si’, 217)

Below is a sample of current papist equivocations berating libertarian non-aggression. The speech, worthy of any South-American integralista surrounds the concept of “freedom” with a Vatican-worthy wall of conditionals, adjectival qualifiers and vagueness to disguise its collectivist calls to coercion. Observe how this Argentine Holy Father rearranges the National Socialist plea to put “The Common Good before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz in the 1920 original)

Calling for integral development means engaging in widening the space of dignity and freedom of people: freedom, however, not only in the negative sense of the absence of impediments, nor only in a positive sense as a choice. It is necessary to add freedom “for”, that is, the freedom to pursue its vocation of both personal and social good. The key idea is that freedom goes hand in hand with the responsibility of protecting the common good and promoting the dignity, liberty and well-being of others, reaching the poor, the excluded and future generations.

Plenary Session of the Pontifical Academy of the Social Sciences on the theme Towards a Participatory Society: New Roads to Social and Cultural Integration (Casina Pio IV, 28 April – 2 May 2017). Freedom in a political context is freedom from government coercion. But in the infallible speech, coercion by harmful or deadly force replaced by the more euphemistic equivocation “impediments,” suggestive not of government action, but ordinary features of terrain.  The dictionary in Mac OS defines impediment: “a hindrance or obstruction in doing something.” The example: “a serious impediment to scientific progress.” In a very real sense, faith and initiation of force are the two primary impediments to scientific progress.

The Pope’s mystical claim that temperatures are rising and coercion must be resorted to as an emergency measure is another example. Thermometer records not tampered with clearly show that temperatures have been decreasing since the Lateran Treaty was signed, as in these measurements for Texas.

Disclosure: this interpreter was as a child enrolled in two mystical schools in a country politically subservient to Rome. The conditioning evidently didn’t “take,” and in college I took physics and math classes. Indoctrination attempts nevertheless provided first-hand experience with the conditioning whereby mystical altruism offers the initiation of force as the only acceptable solution to imaginary political or social conundrums.

I am looking for other libertarian translators. If you know of any, please let me know.
