There’s a virus among us!

In case anybody thought they were gonna get a lecture with references to facts and figures, I state now – as I’ve done several times in the past – that I’m not here to spoonfeed anybody’s ass! I’ve been very silent on the COVID-19 virus until now. I’ve been watchingRead More

Evidence is a waste of time

This is NOT about all the lovely things people can and should do with evidence and related issues. This is about what the human mind tends to do with evidence that is unpalatable (causing discomfort etc): Doubt it. Avoid evaluating it. Rubbish it. Apply unsavoury labels to persons who reportRead More

2020

Yes – I said “2020”. I do not mean 20/20 vision. It’s the year 2020. I’m behind a keyboard, in some part of the Midlands in the United Kingdom. 30 years ago, I could not have foreseen that I would be in ‘this place’, ‘this location’. Life throws us whereverrrr!Read More

Wilful blindness and fear – no power except moral authority

At the outset, I shall not be  spoon feed everybody’s ass (as they say in America)! Wilful blindness is exactly what the words mean. Some needing references and to ‘understand’ basic English shall start here. The concept is also known as ‘wilful ignorance’ and grew out ‘ignorance of the law’Read More

I know that I’ve touched on how intelligent people can be stupid, but today was a brand new experience in that same direction. Right – the situation was that I was sitting at lunch among ‘folk’ who I know the average intelligence quotient of the group was around 120. [GeniusRead More

Walker’s treatise on human nature

As much of my time is spent thinking about human nature, I revisit ‘the’ Treatise on Human Nature by David Hume. I would have read many parts of this in my youth, which I would have forgotten – though some of the ideas would remain somewhere in my subconscious orRead More

Comfortably numb

Have I become ‘comfortably numb’? I have not! But many others have. To explore song meanings see here. There are some – unknowing to themselves – who have become ‘comfortably numb’. To what? To the suffering of people with mental and physical health disabilities. No surprises there, cuz the disabledRead More

What I’ve done

Just to be clear, I’ve done nothing more than try to help people to open their own eyes. But the problem is not with ‘the eyes’; it is with the brain or mind. One cannot open a brain or mind, even if one could pry open people’s eyes. This thoughtRead More

EXTREME STUPIDITY

Righhhhhtt!! So you might say I’m on a roll on this preoccupation with stupidity. Not surprising really, when you think that there is a fictional character living within me, which I often refer too as ‘stupid’ – and with whom occasionally I end up in ‘stupid’ heated debates out here.Read More

Stupidity – an invincible force.

Just to be clear – not because I deal with human stupidity – yet again – means that I’m saying that anybody who reads this is stupid! So stupid are people in general, I need to say this! The finest expose on human stupidity – as I recently discovered, isRead More
