ENGINEERING THE IDIOCRACY
IDIOCRACY-NOT A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE BUT A MIRROR HELD UP TO OURSELVES
Idiocracy was a movie put out a few years ago. It was on its surface a comedy, staring Luke Wilson as a US Army private, a complete slacker, who is placed into a program testing a cryogenic process to preserve the military’s best warriors until they’re needed for some war or whatever. Never mind they’re building a literal Terminator style Skynet and a family of robotic weapons-but that’s beside the point. The point is, due to typical bureaucratic mismanagement the project gets scrapped and somehow the cryogenic chambers Luke Wilson and some prostitute played by Maya Rudolph get thrown into a garbage heap-America in the year 2505.
Idiocracy America: I think we’re a little closer than you think….
Well, as Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph sleep, America and the world degenerate. No, not by nuclear war, famine, Earth changes or some other cataclysm, but through a maintained path of pollution, waste, and deliberately dumbed down people(although HOW future ‘murikans were deliberately dumbed down isn’t touched). By the 24th century there are literally mountains of garbage-which avalanche, reveal the cryogenic chambers and Luke is awakened… in some idiot’s apartment as he watches a show consisting of a man repeatedly getting his balls assaulted in one way or another.
Television in the 21st-er, 24th century… Ow! My head!
Ignoring the obvious mess, the man gets off his couch/toilet and throws Luke out, and the man staggers along in a Calcutta police state with cameras and soldier cops everywhere.
Po-lice in the Idiocracy. Rockin…
The, er… “people”… are retarded derivations of Hispanic, Black and Appalachian urban poor, dependent on the creaking, crumbling automated infrastructure they’ve long forgotten how to take care of, and through centuries of the stupid lower class people outbirthing the too-intelligent-yet-too-ignorant-for-their-own-good “smart” upper class people… guess what? Everyone’s a ‘tard.
I know more than a few dudes like him now…
Luke can’t get no help from these bred down, dumbed down people as the creaky automated police state they’re hopelessly dependent on has its way with him-until a test determines this guy, a complete slacker, average in every way-is the smartest man on Earth.
Anyone who can put two and two together is too smart for the average ‘murkan
And that creaky automated system has broken down so much they can’t even grow crops anymore. Because they’re irrigating with a sports drink(“it’s got electrolytes”). Luke comes up with the solution to use water-but that puts the sports drink maker out of business. Which puts most of America out of work.
Will Obama resort to weighlifting, weave and firing a M249 SAW to keep his polls up?
He’s put on trial, sentenced to “rehabilitation”, where he’s to get run over by monster trucks. Maya however sees that the plants are growing under the water(does it have flouride? Of course). She enlists the help of one of the tards, shows footage of the crops growing under the water, saves the day and they get married and he becomes president. America’s still a shithole.
WE’RE IN A IDIOCRACY-NOT A DEMOCRACY
Television, the electronic narcotic; centrally controlled reality distorting, lying media that’s in every home in America. Hollywood studios and Madison Avenue put out the approved programming. It is programming-programming you how to think, dress, act, give you the approved opinions, designate the approved enemies.
All the programs show the same stereotypes, the same caring and competent cops and doctors and lawyers and judges. The same retarded, low-bred (put your stereotype here). The system’s basically good. Liberals are saints, but there’s a token amount of “right wingers” to preserve the artifice of the American left/right paradigm.
And don’t you DARE own guns! Or question authority! Or think for yourself, find out things for yourself. Certainly, you need to leave politics to the politicians-you’ll be missing the next American Idol or the weekend ball game. You don’t want to be seen as some kind of freak-do you? Just kick back after working for the same corporations that have enslaved you, watch their television programming, feast on their corporate farm produced poison/food. And if that isn’t enough there’s a medical diagnosis readily available to facilitate a legal prescription-just don’t get caught driving with your pills…
Not 500 years from now-NOW!
I must repeat, Americans spend several hours a day passively taking in the products of corporations and government pysops. The same people who’ve already transformed America into an idiocracy have transformed Americans into a kind of hive mind, a group mind whose common nexus is… that widescreen you give your time and devotion to every night.
Naked corporate sponsorship of propaganda, by half naked teleprompter readers? Why not, were about there now.
John Taylor Gatto and Charlotte Isebyrt have exposed the treasonous sabotage of American minds in grade school. America’s state schools were patterned after the Prussian model; regimentation meant to instill obediency and willingness to perform repetitive tasks for days, months, years, decades if necessary. Learn how to think? That would allow Americans to analyze their situation objectively. Learn about the truth of their past and in detail? That would allow Americans to compare what their corporate massahs are doing now, compare that to the past-and figure out what they’ve lost. And then how would a nation be harnessed for the benefit of a few way too rich old white men?
Better there be misspelt signs than deal with a energized, awakened, hostile people.
Corporate run culture
I know I bust on the television, and it needs busting on, but have you ever watched “Mad Men”? Madison Avenue salesmen have been using the television and psychology to sell buying all the crap they sell. Not having a clue, our parents and grandparents bought the sophisticated mind control, got themselves and us into debt.
We don’t need to wait 500 or 5 years for corporate takeover and pimping of every facet of life-people are wearing corporate swag as fashion now. Every stadium and convention center has a corporate sponsor that puts their corporate name on the damn building. Grade school athletic teams whore themselves for corporate sponsorship.
…In a few years, I could see the above sign being commonplace-feeding millions of fat, stupid ‘murkans gorging themselves on grease, preservatives, rotten meat and God knows what else!
In the movie, America was so dependent on this gatorade-like drink they irrigate their crops with it. America is positively addicted to their aspartame and flouride filled soft drinks.
What keeps the police state going? Taxes. How do you sell the dumbest people on Earth to remember to pay their taxes? Sex. I could see that happening but troops with grenade launchers for handguns would be the preferred IRS technique.
Corporate run wasteland
Corporations have taken over the American economy, monopolized it and have run the whole country into the ground with their “free trade” that have drained this country of its productive capacity and their Madison Avenue consumerism that have along with a ever-weakening dollar reduced most of us into debt slavery.
We live in what can be called in part a merchantilist dictatorship. A corporate oligarchy so pervase, so all-powerful the biggest buildings are corporate edifices. Fashion is advertising. And the only way to keep a roof over your head and some kind of… food… in your fat diabetic gut is to work for the very corporations that pimp you out for 19 out of every 20 bucks you earn-and the government takes half of that last dollar… then you got rent, gas, utilities, which enrich some incorporation or another. That last few cents? Guess where you spend it-way too big corporations. Like so:
From Debt Repudiation: Time to free yourselves from fraud by author.
Scientific dictatorship. That’s what we live under and if you think abou it there’s no other way to deal with the situation than face it head on.
Fortunately, the enemy’s engineered economic collapse is also offering a golden opportunity-to see how things really are, to break free of the beast and its debt slavery the electronic narcotic, the preoccupation with baubles and passive entertainments. Seeing how much danger they’re in, Americans have been arming up at a rate unparalleled in American history, the greatest arms race in history is happening now between the American People and the United States Government.
Armed, intelligent, Free people cannot be slaves.
It isn’t enough however to arm yourself, to recognize the toxins both mental and physical that our enemies have pumped us full of. We as a People and as individuals must aspire to become the utmost we can be. To reach for the pinnacle of human potential.
LEONARDO DA VINCI
A contemporary of Nicolai Maciavelli, Da Vinci’s artistic and scientific accomplishments are monumental; it could be stated he was the spark of the Renaissance. At the time, Italy was just a geographic term: dozens of small states were constantly at war with each other, making the land vulnerable to conquest for centuries but for the power of the Pope in Rome and the Venetian Empire.
Although working with late medieval technology his concepts of the tank, the breech loading cannon, automobiles, aircraft, armored warships would all be realized by the Industrial Revolution. He had incredible artistic talent, and could draw a self-portrait without the aid of a mirror.
See, this essay’s useful after all-just get some DOM pipe, welding equipment, build a mount….
Not only was Leonardo Da Vinci an intellectual giant, he was physically more than a match for any of the brain dead thugs held up for worship by the “elites” Idiocracy.
Leonardo da Vinci, (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519), is regarded as the archetypal Renaissance Man. Little is known about his personal life and he appears to have been secretive about his most intimate relationships. However, much research and speculation has been invested in these aspects of his life, because of the fascination exerted by his artistic and scientific genius, and his apparent personal magnetism.
Description and analysis of Leonardo’s character, personal desires and intimate behaviour has been based upon a number of sources: records concerning him, his biographies, his own written journals, his paintings, his drawings, his associates and speculations that were made concerning him by contemporaries.
These demonstrate a man who appears to have benefitted from his nurturing family, who worked with others cooperatively in apprenticeship and encouragingly as a master and who provided well for the needs of those for whom he had responsibility.
Leonardo Da Vinci had a number of powerful patrons, including the King of France. He had, over the years, a large number of followers and pupils. With two of these in particular, Salai and Melzi, he maintained close relationships.
Descriptions and portraits of Leonardo combine to create an image of a man who was tall, athletic and extremely handsome. Portraits indicate that as an older man, he wore his hair long, at a time when most men wore it cropped short, or reaching to the shoulders. While most men were shaven or wore close-cropped beards, Leonardo’s beard flowed over his chest.
His clothing is described as being unusual in his choice of bright colours, and at a time when most mature men wore long garments, Leonardo’s preferred outfit was the short tunic and hose generally worn by younger men.
According to Vasari, “In the normal course of events many men and women are born with various remarkable qualities and talents; but occasionally, in a way that transcends nature, a single person is marvellously endowed by heaven with beauty, grace and talent in such abundance that he leaves other men far behind….Everyone acknowledged that this was true of Leonardo da Vinci, an artist of outstanding physical beauty who displayed infinite grace in everything he did and who cultivated his genius so brilliantly that all problems he studied were solved with ease. He possessed great strength and dexterity; he was a man of regal spirit and tremendous breadth of mind…”
Leonardo was a man with great personal appeal, kindness and generosity and was generally well-loved by his contemporaries.
According to Vasari “Leonardo’s disposition was so lovable that he commanded everyone’s affection”. He was “a sparkling conversationalist” who charmed Ludovico il Moro with his wit. Vasari sums him up by saying “In appearance he was striking and handsome, and his magnificent presence brought comfort to the most troubled soul; he was so persuasive that he could bend other people to his will. He was physically so strong that he could withstand violence and with his right hand he could bend the ring of an iron door knocker or a horseshoe as if they were lead. He was so generous that he fed all his friends, rich or poor…. Through his birth Florence received a very great gift, and through his death it sustained an incalculable loss.”
Some of Leonardo’s personal wisdom is to be found in a series of fables that he wrote. A prevalent theme is the mistake of placing too high esteem upon one’s self, and the benefits to be gained through awareness, humility and endeavour.
The diversity of Leonardo’s interests, remarked on by Vasari as apparent in his early childhood, was to express itself in his journals which record his scientific observations of nature, his meticulous dissection of corpses to understand anatomy, his experiments with machines for flying, for generating power from water and for besieging cities, his studies of geometry and his architectural plans, as well as personal memos and creative writing including fables.
It appears from Vasari’s description that Leonardo first learnt to play the lyre as a child and that he was very talented at improvisation. In about 1479 he created a lyre in the shape of a horse’s head, which was made “mostly of silver”, and of “sonorous and resonant” tone. Lorenzo de’Medici saw this lyre and wishing to better his relationship with Ludovico Sforza, the usurping Duke of Milan, he sent Leonardo to present this lyre to the Duke as a gift. Leonardo’s musical performances so far surpassed those of Ludovico’s court musicians that the Duke was delighted.
Leonardo always loved nature. One of the reasons was because of his childhood environment. Near his childhood house were mountains, trees, and rivers. There were also many animals. This environment gave him the perfect chance to study the surrounding area; it also may have encouraged him to have interest in painting. The two earliest memories of his childhood were of a kite hovering over his cradle, and of a cave in the woods.
Leonardo was and is renowned primarily as a painter. Two of his works, the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, are the most famous, most reproduced and most parodied portrait and religious painting of all time, respectively, their fame approached only by Michelangelo‘s Creation of Adam. Leonardo’s drawing of the Vitruvian Man is also regarded as a cultural icon, being reproduced on everything from the Euro to text books to t-shirts. Perhaps fifteen of his paintings survive, the small number due to his constant, and frequently disastrous, experimentation with new techniques, and his chronic procrastination. Nevertheless, these few works, together with his notebooks, which contain drawings, scientific diagrams, and his thoughts on the nature of painting, comprise a contribution to later generations of artists only rivalled by that of his contemporary, Michelangelo.
Leonardo is revered for his technological ingenuity. He conceptualised a helicopter, a tank, concentrated solar power, a calculator, the double hull and outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. Relatively few of his designs were constructed or were even feasible during his lifetime, but some of his smaller inventions, such as an automated bobbin winder and a machine for testing the tensile strength of wire, entered the world of manufacturing unheralded.As a scientist, he greatly advanced the state of knowledge in the fields of anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics.
End quote but can you imagine such a man living today?! Talk about the absolute opposite of the tards of the American idiocracy. DaVinci would probably be diagnosed by some psychiatric witch doctor, given ritalin and had his mind destroyed in public schools.
Leonardo DaVinci had a methodical mind, this is a breakdown of how he thought according to his own writings; taken from the internet under Fair Use.
1. Curiosità. Curiosità is an “insatiably curious approach to life and unrelenting quest for continuous learning”. Great minds have one characteristic in common: they continuously ask questions throughout their lives. Leonardo’s endless quest for truth and beauty clearly demonstrates this. What makes great minds different is the quality of their questions. You can increase your ability to solve problems by increasing your ability to ask good questions. Like da Vinci, you should cultivate an open mind that allows you to broaden your universe and increase your ability to explore it. Here are some ways to apply Curiosità:
o Keep a journal. Bring a journal wherever you go and use it often. Write your ideas and thoughts there. Try to write several statements a day that start with “I wonder why/how…”
o Observe according to a theme. Choose a theme and observe things according to the theme for a day. For example, let’s say you choose “communication”. For the entire day, observe every type and instance of communication you come across. You can then record your observations in your journal.
o Stream of consciousness exercise. Pick a question and write the thoughts and associations that occur to you as they are. Don’t edit them. The important thing is to keep writing. This is also referred to as freewriting.
Dimostrazione. Dimostrazione is “a commitment to test knowledge through experience, persistence, and a willingness to learn from mistake”. Wisdom comes from experience and the principle of Dimostrazione helps you get the most out of your experience. Here are some ways to apply Dimostrazione:
o Check your beliefs. Do you hold any beliefs that you haven’t verified through experience?
o Three points of view. First, make a strong argument against your belief. Next, take a distant view of your belief (for example, as if you live in a different culture) and review it. Finally, find friends who can give you different perspectives.
o Analyze the advertisements that affect you. Look at the advertisements in your favorite magazine and analyze the strategy and tactics they use. Find the advertisements that affect you most and find out why.
o Find “anti-role models” to learn from. List the names of some people whose mistakes you want to avoid. Learn from them so that you won’t encounter the same pitfalls.
Sensazione. Sensazione is “the continual refinement of the senses, especially sight, as the means to enliven experience”. According to da Vinci, we can best practice Dimostrazione through our senses, particularly sight. That’s why one of Leonardo’s mottoes is saper vedere (knowing how to see) upon which he built his work in arts and science. Here are some ways to apply Sensazione:
o Write detailed description of an experience. For instance, describe your experience of watching a sunrise in your journal.
o Learn how to describe a smell.
o Learn to draw.
o Listen to different sounds around you. Learn to listen to different intensity of sounds from the softest (e.g. your breathing) to the loudest (e.g. traffic).
o Live in the moment. Practice mindfulness.
4. Sfumato. Sfumato is “a willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty”. An essential characteristic of da Vinci’s genius is his ability to handle a sense of mystery. Here are two ways to apply Sfumato:
o Befriend ambiguity. Find some situations in your past where you faced ambiguity (e.g. waiting to hear if your application for a job you wanted was successful). Describe how you felt.
o Ask yourself questions that relate two opposites. For example, ask yourself how your happiest and saddest moments are related.
o Practice the Socratic method. The goal with the Socratic method is to examine possibilities, and that is done by asking questions, not by giving answers. Socrates was known (and criticized) for asking questions to which he didn’t have answers. The key to using the Socratic method is to be humble. Don’t assume that you or anyone knows anything for sure. Question every premise.
Arte/scienza. Arte/scienza is “the development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination”. This is thinking with the “whole brain”. Mind mapping is a powerful method that can help you combine logic and imagination in your work and life. The end result of mapping should be a web-like structure of words and ideas that are somehow related in the writer’s mind.
Corporalità. Corporalità is “the cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise”. Leonardo had amazing physical ability that complemented his genius in science and arts. Here are some ways to apply Corporalità:
o Develop a program for physical fitness. Your program should include three things: flexibility exercises, strength training, and aerobic conditioning.
o Develop body awareness. Study anatomy. Try yoga. Dance. Do some contact juggling. Whatever strengthens the connection between body and mind, go for it.
o Cultivate ambidexterity. Leonardo could work with both his right and left hand and regularly switched between them. You can cultivate ambidexterity by using your nondominant hand for relatively simple tasks like brushing your teeth or eating your breakfast. Later you can use your nondominant hand for writing.
7. Connessione. Connessione is “a recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena”. This, in other words, is systems thinking. One main source of Leonardo’s creativity is his ability to form new patterns through connections and combinations of different elements. Here are some ways to apply Connessione:
o Find ways to link things that seem unrelated. For example, you can try to find connections between a bear and the World Wide Web, or geology and the Mona Lisa (real name “La Giaconda”).
o Imagine dialogues. Imagine talking with a role model to gain new perspective and insight. Or you can imagine how some role models would discuss your problem.
o Think about how things originate. Take an object and think about what elements are involved in its creation and how.
Unfortunately, the wrong Italian is held up as a role model-Maciavellian intrigue is practiced in every corner of American society, especially among many of the Patriot Movement who’d rather turn a potentially nation-saving cause into a joke of petty soap opera intrigue and treason.
WE NEED TO CULTIVATE A DA VINCI SOCIETY
That can only start with YOU. What do YOU aspire to be?
What do you hold up to be a virtue?
Active in one’s community?
Some corporate media invented image of coolness?
Minding your own business?
Going along with what celebrities and other “authorities” say?
Many a society have chosen the path of the Idiocracy instead of self-actualization.
Most were conquered, or simply collapsed from within by the social rot.
Some were harnessed by evil men, turned into empires.
When empires are allowed to rule, only death, destruction and the further retardation of Man result.
The United States is an empire. To us it is an Idiocracy that can go overseas and murder whoever it is acceptable to treat like niggers, and we can cheer the weapons paid for by our beyond-serfdom level of taxes on the evening news. Hell we cheer when the US government’s tin badge gods do their own Shock and Awe on our own fellow citizens.
Our America was not inspired by Maciavelli and all his intrigue and power games. Our America was inspired in great part by Leonardo Da Vinci. One of history’s most self-actualized men, he sought to the best he can be, and it was that dream that propelled the masses of common people to this country, to be the best they could be-or knew how to be. Certainly a revolution had to be fought, and that revolution was eventually hijacked by the sons of Maciavellil with the engineered political and economic crisis that led to the US Constitution… and the tyranny we now live under.
The ideal of Our America remains. You can never, ever, kill an ideal; especially the ideal of Freedom.
The enemy can kill off however many people they can. They cannot kill the desire to be Free. Even in the most totalitarian regime, the darkest age that desire will lay dormant, gestate. Its roots will penetrate the first crack it can and grow from there, spreading, growing.
That ideal has been growing for countless generations, in the face of centurions, knights, barons, satraps, janissaries, barons, dukes, kings, khans, emperors. It has weathered the worst the international bankers have thrown at it; the scientific dictatorship called Modern America… and yet it remains, still growing. Even when the organizations of those that remember that dream, of Freedom, are penetrated, perverted, turned agains those that joined to fight for that Freedom-that dream still lives.
Freedom has grown up. No amount of neurolinguistic programming, role models, authority figures, laws, weapons are going to stop it. Those that have carefully crafted this society, this Hologram of Liberty to harness our energies and quietly enslave us to embark on a century of wars to found their “new world order” cannot destroy ideals. On the contrary every person they seduce into debt creates someone who will repudiate their debt and cut off their chains of usury slavery. Every person they imprison for some ridiculously trivial “code infraction” becomes an outlaw who will NOT obey ANY PART of their byzantine legal code. Every person they murder creates a martyr-a blood debt-that they who think have conquered us will have to pay for.
