I pondered all these things, and how men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and when it comes turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name

Political cults create their own reality as effectively as the Scientologists or the Exclusive Brethren. Their leaders cannot allow members to take at face value evidence that contradicts their teachings… To maintain control the cult must blacken the world beyond its walls.

The amount of violations of human rights in a country is always an inverse function of the amount of complaints about human rights violations heard from there. The greater the number of complaints being aired, the better protected are human rights in that country.

I would agree that’s it is unfair when politicians or economists make a mess out of a country and the rest of the country has to suffer. BUT we so easy forget about this point of view when things work out fine. We all then expect rise of salaries, pensions, lower taxes, etc. Nobody would say: “You, politicians and economists, we’ve got here because of your effort. Plese keep the money!” I wonder why are we so “partially blinded”?

Whatever the Thinker thinks, the Prover will prove“ Robert Anton Wilson.

Regarding unproven theories, ideologies and the future it is better to “sit on the fence”. Then you can see how the prover proves whatever the thinker thinks: an event happens and the people with opposite views would shout “I told you so” – for example. Greece is a good example at the moment. Also it is amaizing how much some people want to see the world as a simple black and white picture (fitting their worldview) when the world is complex and multidimentional. How much some are demonizing their opposition at any cost.

Regarding all things practical, it is better to follow what brings more benefit and less harm to all, and what actually works. No ideology nesessary. No need to be “right” or “left” wing when you are thoughtful and compassionate – I wish to learn to be here.

Numerous
individuals act to bring peace, justice, prosperity and equality to the
world. They sign petitions, donate, blog, march, form organisations.  
It is all right and noble.

Governments often say the same words,  appear to care about Human
rights, peace and environment.  They have to: otherwise individual
people won’t vote for them.  Yet so often it seems that the true
motivation for ALMOST ALL GOVERNMENTS is mere strength of their country.
 They are plotting aiming at regime change to get more allies,  they
are trying to broaden their country market for export or to grab cheaper
resources, they sell weapons right and left – and so on.

This is wrong and I think all thinking people of the world have to
come together and expose the truth to make this world a better place.

An interesting idea in a podcast: http://media.blubrry.com/seasteading/www.seasteading.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Is-Seasteading-Beyond-Democracy-We-ask-Frank-Karsten-author.mp3

My doubt: would breaking big states into little ones make more bureaucracy, nationalism and possibilities of wars? But maybe I am wrong. …

I think politics are a mistake. They’re the trailing edge of society. And people who go into politics do it because they have an emotional problem. It hearkens back to Wilhelm Reich talking about the mass psychology of fascism, where politics is about working out your own emotional difficulties on other people. There’s something wrong with that. I don’t want to do that. I don’t want other people to do that to me – or around society in general.

So I think in the twenty-first century, politics has been shown to be, if not bad, at least full of unintended consequences. And so if you want to make a better world, forget about electing Barack Obama or Hilary Clinton or any of these politicians, but go out and do it yourself, directly.
