Perspective on true patriotism and comments on the current state of the 2016 presidential election circus. 
The Republican wild card is 'raging Bull Elephant' Trumpeter. Most if not all of the trailing pachyderms in the herd are just clone puppets of the corporatocracy establishment. Rand Paul is a bit of a wild card from a more rational deck, but, sad to say, he's now just one of the dark-horse longshots. For the moment Cruz appears to be the Bull Trumpeter's only challenge for nomination. The Democrat wild card is Sanders. The other soul...

I will always tend to pass by posted memes, images, and text - especially rants - that contain misspellings or punctuation or grammar errors. I'll accept online acronyms and conventional abbreviations, but anyone wanting to be respected for their rationale and intellect should post with literacy and clarity.

My latest blog post, prompted by a question on Quora ....
Quora question Atheists: Where do you stand in Plato's cave, and what are the other three groups of people from your perspective? As you can see in this picture, there are four kinds of people: * those watching shadows * those who understand shadows * those who are on the way out of the cave * those that are out of the cave My Answer I’m puzzled that the question is directed to atheists. The heart of the alleg...

In one important sense, the US Federal Government has already "Fallen" but it is not yet "Dead." For many decades, it has remained recursively trapped between pseudo-leadership determined within a closed-loop "Aristocracy" at one end and artificial life support via sheer "Bureaucracy" at the other. Repeated cycles and circuses of "Recriminations" (aka elections) drag our nation and us the people between those dead-ends year after year after year ....

The lifecycle curve at the link below is what I'm talking about. I don't think our government can or will find its own way out of this ongoing decline, and I think we're on the verge of breaking out to the downside when the debt bubble bursts, as it inevitably will. Only we the people can pull us back toward the "Prime" state of our Union on this lifecycle curve.

The problem is, I don't know how we can do that. More elections and 'changing it from the inside' clearly are not working. Does anyone have any serious ideas or suggestions beyond a rant or a bumper-sticker sound bite?

Philosophy tip for the day: many ideologies and philosophies roam the halls of academia, but neopositivist scientism runs the world.

Scientism is belief in the universal applicability of the scientific method and approach, and the view that empirical science constitutes the most "authoritative" worldview or the most valuable part of human learning - to the exclusion of other viewpoints.

Neopositivism (aka logical positivism) is a philosophy that holds to be meaningful only those propositions that can be analysed by the tools of logic into elementary propositions that are either tautological or are empirically verifiable. It therefore rejects metaphysics, theology, and sometimes ethics as meaningless.

Litmus-test your beliefs with this information from one of the best scientific minds of our time. Just how naked does the emperor have to be, and with how much hubris, before we take down the tyranny?

Consistent with my political stance as a revolutionary iconoclast as it aligns with my opposition to any form of corporatocracy.
Sanders has the best policies; GOP must be stopped at all costs.
