The Force has no "dark side" in my view but humans can choose to use their knowledge to destroy things, rather than build them.Existence, itself, is free of any moral dimension, in of itself. For moral opinion is of man, and perhaps no other creature. And so ideas of right and wrong, good and bad, begins and ends with mankind.Existence simply is, and those living pieces or consciousnesses that make it up, simply are.The conclusions or interpretations we place on existence are simply our own projections, particularly those of a "moral" nature, and do not affect or relate to the true ISNESS of existence.And ISNESS is one without a second.There is no good and bad in oneness, just what IS.
I take it to mean approving of the man and attempting to help shape and promote the policies of his you agree with, while pointing out the flaws in the one's you don't.It is not attacking him as a person, as blind enemies do, but attempting to shape his policy ideas by engaging with him in a friendly way.
Short answer yes.
I believe vaccines may help a person avoid a serious illness.
But I also know they can make you sick. It has happened to my mother and, according to internet reports and friends, many other people, it would seem.
As a result, my own approach is to avoid receiving them unless there is a very good reason to do so.
Such a reason may be the plan to travel to an infected region, particularly when others will be preparing my food.
Facing such circumstances, various vaccines may be considered.
The final decision rests with oneself and one's faith in, and perceived need of, the vaccines being offered and should not rest with some outside agency such as a government.
I don't care what my doctor prescribes as long as it's scientific and not woo.And by scientific, I mean has passed with flying colours double blind testing by multiple independent experts with the resulting data analysed multiple actualstatisticians, not biology or med majors.Until then I'll smoke weed...
Because I know it works!
Politically speaking, it doesn’t really matter who is right or wrong, a relative thing anyway, it only matters who gets to move their agenda forward.
For politics is the world of the gaining and wielding of power, and power is amoral, like life, itself.
Just as life doesn't choose the most virtuous to survive and thrive, power doesn't choose the most virtuous to wield it, only those most able to attract it and handle its demands!
Trump is outflanking his opponents
And putting them
in a position
Where their views look weak
In comparison to his.This is how he defeats them- By giving them no solid ground
On which to debate.We saw this happen in the Republican debates
Where he destroyed his competitors
One by one,
And made them look weak.He will do the same with the current crop.
(One tweet at a time.)They are doomed!
People are strange. They don't expect the oil business to be morally pure, but they do the medical business. Maybe because their innocent trust is encouraged at every turn. There is much money to be made from people's naive acceptance of what they are told is "good for them".
I think the medical industry has been deeply corrupted by money and that the authorities who oversee it are either bought out, brainwashed or taught to fear taking an alternate stance.And so of course I am leery of its products.That doesn't mean I don't use one or two of them on occasion but most of them I just see as hyped up toxins, really.Of course, I trust in the products that have clearly shown their worth over time and through experience, such as pain killers and antibiotics, but the rest I generally give a pass.I do believe health begins with a peaceful heart and don't believe random chemicals thrown into the mix are going to help much with that, so I don't look for salvation in that area.
There are people who have run zero businesses who think they know better than Trump. Ha! There is a thing called the real world. That cunt lives in it, unlike all the dreamers who oppose him. The world needs dreamers, but they can't claim to know what works in the world of business and politics. Being a soft cunt may not cut the mustard!
God isn't moral according to human ideas of morality-
He's lawful, and there's a big difference.
Laws are always the case, no exceptions, and so must be totally sensitive to our every move, so as they always "spring into action" when called upon, knowingly or unknowingly.
Morals are a changing thing, subject to fashion, and differing from one person and culture to another. Still, we do have a built in compass through which to judge our actions which we call our conscience.
This is God given and shows it is OUR duty to plot our course and judge it, not some external authority.
Fanatics of all persuasions give their movements a bad name. And what is a fanatic? Someone who believes the ends justifies the means. Someone who believes intimidation and violence is justified because of some future goal. They think such extreme measures are necessary because their perceived "enemy" engages in such things. But to fight a thing is to become that thing. That is why fighting evil with evil doesn't work. It just makes everyone evil and what is gained then?
Many people believe justice is only dealt out at the end of our life by a God who observes and judges our every deed.
Others place their faith in justice in man. They hope or work for changes in social systems to bring about a fairer, more just society.
A third group see all events as just because they see them as the outworking of the Law of Attraction- a metaphysical law that is always in operation.
The law of attraction concept is based on the idea that what we give out, in terms of thought and action returns to us in terms of our experience. This concept or belief sees the outside world as a mirror to our inside world of thoughts and feelings.
The Law of Attraction teaches that justice is automatic and built in to our realities framework. There is no need to wait for a future life to receive justice or to wait for society to change its lum…
I don’t accept that anyone has any power over me whatsoever, unless I
freely give it. Therefore, I don’t believe in “mandatory” anything.
The idea that government knows best is not one I share.
Government is politics, just as big-businesses is politics, religion is politics, science is politics and health care is politics. And politics is often built on lies because it is about power, not truth.
Forgive me for not believing the hype these folks are selling, but I ain't buying it!!
Having said that, these people can be worked with certainly, when it suits one to do so.
The point is: realise you have options and the product they are selling may be either useless, worse that useless, over-hyped, or quite useful. Use your intelligence and be careful. Don't overdo anything. Small Steps.
I don't fully trust any study I haven't performed myself. To be fully confident you have to be involved in both the data collection phase and the interpretation phase. For one's interpretation to be meaningful we must have full faith in the data which is difficult if we didn't collect it ourselves.
While the data collection phase can be fraught with difficulty there is particularly great danger in the interpretation phase which generally involves statistical analysis.
This phase is open to great manipulation and requires deep statistical knowledge and the integrity to apply best technique no matter the result. For the possibility of manipulating or massaging the results to suit one's vested interest is always a possibility.
If people wish to argue about vaccinations they need to understand the difference between the science behind vaccines (how they impact on the immune system and the body in general) and statistical techniques used to analyze health population data to determine the safety and effectiveness of vaccine use amongst the population.
My own background is in the kind of multi-variate regression analysis that is used to determine such safety and effectiveness, and so I feel as qualified to speak on such matters as anyone else with a deep understanding of statistics, specifically regression analysis. I don't think many scientists or doctors fit into this category, as their statistical background tends to be very weak and superficial, from those I have spoken to.
In statistics, in particular, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. In regression analysis, where changes in one variable are connected to changes in other variables, the choice of variables to include in one's explanatory eq…
If people want to draw conclusions about a matter without doing any research that's fine, but for these same folks to slander those who have bothered to look into the matter seems a bit rich to me.
This is a common theme. People brainwashed by others they trust slamming those who don't share their view. As if they have any original knowledge to begin with. Just hand me downs from someone else's hand me downs, with barely a true fact between them.
If you go far enough up the chain to find where the original knowledge came from you tend to find it's largely nonsense spread by an unreliable source with a dog in the fight. This nonsense is then passed on by bought-out "experts" or journalists who then share it with the public, many of whom think they are so clever for believing the b.s. they are fed.
The advantage of legal drugs
-Dependable make-up and dosage
-Legal if used under doctor supervisionThe disadvantage of legal drugs
-Requires convincing a doctor you need the drug
-Choice is limited to drugs that treat medical conditions, not necessarily ones that are interesting to try.
Some people want you to take a position on everything: the moon landings, vaccines, GMO’s, global warming, socialism v free markets, etc.
A person can’t research everything to within an inch of their life. Yes, we can rely on experts in the media, but are they really experts or have they sold their soul for money and prestige?
Instead of buying into everything, we focus our attention on those topics we deem important and we draw our own conclusions while leaving other, less important areas as an open finding.
For example, a person with no children who lives in a country with a high standard of living has little need to research deeply into vaccines. There is just no need for such medical interventions in such a circumstance and therefore no need to draw conclusions about their efficiency or safety. The situation is different for a new parent or someone considering visiting an undeveloped tropical country. For them they will need to become informed as they will have a decision…
I don’t care what the establishment thinks but if they attempt to bully others into succumbing to their desires I will call them out for it. Bullying is only required to control people when what one is offering is of low quality.
The trick to winning every argument is to take a position that is not only easy to defend, but that is impossible to argue against coherently with any credibility. Such examples include the sanctity of the individual and the primacy of individual freedom. Rather than saying "the person should be free to do whatever they want, any time" we say "the person should be free to do what they want, unless it is not directly harming another". Nobody can argue against that logic with any cohency or credibility. That is the drug war debunked, among many other things.
The DEA (Drug Enforcement Authority) destroying a cannabis plantation. Many of the "wars" that are being fought- against drug users, against anti-vaxxers, against freedom fighters around the world, etc., is due to an inability amongst many to respect the right of others to choose for themselves.
To me a fanatic is someone who is willing to override the freewill of others to achieve some political or social aim. Always this aim is seen as noble and the fanatic believes the ends justifies the means. The alternative to this is to believe the means must be worthy of the ends and that individual liberty is paramount!
Many people equate consensus with truth, but to me the two are separate things. “Consensus” is often manufactured by those who have power to subjugate those who do not.
[The Merovingian: "Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without."]*
Particularly when a certain “consensus” over an issue suits the interests of the power elite it is promoted ad nauseum through their mouthpieces- the mass media, the politicians and the institutions they control.
This is enough for most people to jump on board with the manufactured view. Still, some questioners, or true skeptics (there are few of these), remain, which gives us all hope.
If someone's livelihood depends on them expressing a certain view about a contentious subject their opinion can be safely disregarded. Only truly independent investigators whose livelihoods are not at stake are free to express the truths they have discovered.
If you are going to argue against establishment lies you had better be twice as informed and intelligent as the purveyors of the lies. After all, they've got hordes of sheep behind them ready to baa in sych, many of whom have public platforms prepared for them to sprout the establishment line.
So many people are brainwashed by what they think is "science". Probably more on the left than the right, I would say. Lefties don't seem to trust corporations, yet they trust the government (which is mostly run for the benefit of corporations) and anything published by the (military-medical industrial complex) establishment under the phoney banner of "science".
A lot of human activities begin with good intentions but then get distorted by politics and money. We can see this with religion but most people seem blind to how this is also the case with science. As a result appeals to science can still pull the wool over most people's eyes.
They haven't woken up yet to the fact that most, if not all, important institutions have been bought out by monied interests and that the "scientific education" they are so proud of is, to a large extent, just a form of brainwashing and groupthink.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: I have a bad feeling about this. Qui-Gon Jinn: I don't sense anything. Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's not about the mission, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive. Qui-Gon Jinn: Don't center on your anxieties, Obi-Wan. Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs. Obi-Wan Kenobi: But Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the future. Qui-Gon Jinn: But not at the expense of the moment. Be mindful of the living Force, my young Padawan.
