Technology is to blame!!!

Postby Oceanside50 » Sun Jan 31, 2021 7:22 am

Roughly 2,500 years ago Alexander the Great set out to conquer the known world. His empire stretched from Greece to t India. When he conquered the Persian Empire, he gave a speech to the conquered Persians. His famous saying in the speech, “πας μη ελλην βάρβαρος». In English it basically translates to, if you are not Greek you are a barbarian. Alexander went on to clarify his famous saying. He described Greek not along the lines of a race but of a culture, that values technology, critical thinking, science and logic. Anyone that adheres to these values can consider himself to be a Greek regardless of their race. Those that hold the values of religions and superstitions are considered barbaric. Hence we have the beginning of the west, that is based above all on science and logic. For over 2 million years humans were evolving into basic hunter gatherers. Our dna has basically been static. Technology has brought us out of the societies of hunter gatherers and into these tech heavy modern societies. This fact places humans in highly stressful societies. These stresses come from the fact that our dna is evolved to be hunter gatherers. Humans try and adapt to this modern society through entertainment, drugs(alcohol, Valium, Xanax and adderAl just to name a few). We try and create better societies by making everyone more equal. Woman’s suffrage, civil rights, gay rights etc. but still things aren’t getting better for us.. So we try harder, trans rights, patriarchy, feminism. The left has filled our heads with the ideal that if we make everyone equal, the world will be better and happier. Transgenders account for roughly .1 of 1% of the population... but we are tearing up society in order to give them equal rights. Civil rights and feminism are dead as far as I’m concerned they’ve served their purpose. But the left keeps throwing BLM and patriarchy in our faces. All this goes back to humans having a hard time adjusting to a modern tech society. Our dna fights it. Instead of trying to change the society we live in we try to change the human. And that’s impossible. The riots here in America this past year show the polarity of the situation and it will get worse..The absurdity that our lives in the west will get better if men can wear dresses or that a patriarchal system needs to be destroyed or that a minor can transition into an adult or that humans have the right to transition into cats and dogs or that there are 67 genders instead of two, clearly shows how dangerous our western societies are becoming. We keep pushing for tech innovations thinking our lives will get better and stress free we keep digging ourselves deeper and deeper. A hunter gatherer dna, with tech that could destroy the world. Think about it!!! And discuss

Class is to blame; how the elite can live constructive lives without ever really having to make decisions along with the classes they may see beneath them. Such a divide, "Republican" and "Democrat" only serves as diversion.

...indeed, it is "their" technology, the very, very few, and the machinery for it, from which we are sold a way of life, (along with so-called news, and so-called entertainment, "balanced" because it includes the content of its extremes as well), that causes the stress so unworkable in our lives that we turn against each other; velocity as well as mass.

...by keeping us working, afraid to lose our jobs, what was promised with the advent of the Industrial Age, more leisure, seems so inviting in this Information Age; as the plunder is going not much has changed it seems.

Do not despair my friend. Enough, were found (this time) to demonstrate that Americans are Hellenes, despite the barbarism who on Christmas Day attacked the very seat of this/your State.

Yes, to questioning Authority: who expects differently?
...do not expect progress and progressive thinking from the top, because they will be looking to the rest of us for these changes that we are all seeking. Progressive action must come from the bottom.
Biden, now is President, time will tell what kind of a President he may be.
..."we" regardless, those not them cannot allow, in, our Liberty, our Freedom usurped by being torn apart.

It is all of us, as Persons, and as Individuals, on which such notions as Universal Principals are based; in fact, it is what makes us as Humans, equal.
That, is the way. That there are enough of us, (who are also Hellenes,) far more than "them" whoever
they are wherever they may be found, fighting Ignorance for Truth: we must live with them resisting change, they must live with us embracing the future, it is not hard to understand.

You in Wyoming? I read that it is the center of "America" right now, though i don't doubt Americans live there as well. How is it going?

(Let's also remember the planet itself is under so much stress, it would be no coincidence that this COVID was brought upon in no small part, as an equal and opposite reaction, to the stress put on it.)

A little difficult I'm afraid!

In future consider using paragraphs, white-space and other techniques to make your article readable.

Yes, let’s all go back to the Survival of the Fittest times and do away with any Rule of Law so that we can have stealing and raping of females of any age, killings of male challengers to that throne, keeping slaves to serve the strong, conquest of others land at will. :roll:

Yes, that will most definitely take care of all the transgender and gay issues some people from the right have. :lol:

With this Covid 19 quarantine we had, if the food supply system we have completely broke down, how long do you think it would take for humans to get their spears out. By the way some have said ( since silenced) that this thing mutated in 8 years to this point, whereas it would need 800 years to mutate to the degree it is now

It seems the further mankind encroaches on nature the more frequent this sort of viral contagion will occur. Ebola only surfaced during the 70s in the DRC during a period of economic expansion. Several viruses have originated in China where rapid changes in land use and an inexorable rise in domesticate livestock have happened.

Kikapu.. do you really believe that society and it’s ills will get better by allowing .01 of 1 % of the population get its way. It’s pure absurdity if you think that

Who, in this world can agree to that; if in fact we knew who exactly this "who" is.

...is that the Problem?

What do you mean by allowing this .01 of 1% getting their way?

What, something like having the same rights as you and I have?

Surely that’s not what you meant?

If it is what you meant, then which is the next minority group would you like to have their rights to be “exterminated”?

Why is the overwhelming majority are so afraid of from such minuscule minority groups, people more than likely will never cross their paths or be associated with?

It’s a little bit like a grown up people being afraid of insects or a mouse, which are minuscule to our size. :roll:

Children are far more advanced than some adults when it comes to such creatures, including any and all minority groups. :wink:

Some adults need to act like children when it comes to diversities in the world. :lol:

Giving rights to these micro minorities, such as , allowing grown men in dresses to walk into female bathrooms is taking the rights away from the vast majority. Allowing a human to come take a dump on your front lawn because he transitioned into a dog and has rights is a problem. Pedophiles are showing their ugly heads, by saying I can love anyone I choose, even if it’s a 10 year old boy... minors are beginning to say that they can transition into adults.. imagine a 11 year old girl running off with a 50 year old geezer.. do you still want to make all equal?
