It is make believe, we must learn how to careful with our reality or we will find ourselves thinking that nonsense is real.

Also. I have much to learn past the double-check phase of analysis. Often I do make it to "check again." I have never made it to doing you the favor of checking one more time.

And especially not cross-referencing. I recall that I am indeed, at best, in first grade when I should really slow down and enjoy the formative material - that I am getting ahead of myself.

I had written my responses from the presumption that the Iron Mountain Conference papers were not satire, despite noting "satire" in the subtitle of the work as published in this link.  Looking at current global politics, I judged it to be a true primary source, that had been augmented with a false assertion of "satire" by authority holding powers.

So to learn that you say it is definitively satire, was a surprise. Making the irony double in that it does fit so much to my concerns about the hegemonic imperialism in our nation's politics that motivated the beginning of my journey.

I thought that I could have an emotive moment - while staying within knowledge and rejecting opinion. I had clearly never been challenged to check the etymology of both emotion and opinion, as I just now did.  Wherein I learned that emotion comes from acting upon a series of opinions.  Thank you for today, Dr. Black. Namaska.

Namaska Adam!

Please "Calm Down" you are in the lower grades and you have more than a long way to go "sooooo" remember we are just getting data and we are not going to reach conclusions.

After reading the Freedom Force International materials, down to the analysis of collectivism they provide, I am more sure than ever that the question remains "What is more important? The needs of the one or the needs of the many?"

And I see now where that question leads some to dive in to the war-hypothesis.

"We have dealt only sketchily with proposed disarmament scenarios and economic analyses, but the reason for our seemingly casual dismissal of so much serious and sophisticated work lies in no disrespect for its competence. It is rather a question of relevance. To put it plainly, all these program, however detailed and well developed, are abstractions. The most carefully reasoned disarmament sequence inevitably reads more like the rules of a game or a classroom exercise in logic than like a prognosis of real events in the real world. This is as true of today's complex proposals as it was of the Abbe de St. Pierre's "Plan for Perpetual Peace in Europe" 250 years ago."

This language stinks of a dismissive narrator and a tone of indoctrination.

I find a fallacy immediately:

In defense of the topic of "War" (the most chaotic of human activities), supposition of "Order" is the singular orientation.

In other words, in studying whether or not to maintain "war" as an economic necessity, the report requires "order" as the primal function of society.  Order preserved by War; War preserved for Order.  This is circular logic.

Of particular note, in defining the global effect as 10% of the world economy, a key objection is made that political upheaval would be certain - due to the drastic effect on 10% of the population.  I reject this notion. 55% - 45% looks like a lot in a poll or election result - but the difference in reaching 50-50 is as small as 1/20 changing their mind. Therefore, the effective 10% these writers fear is only a 5% concern.

AHHHH. AAAAAH. SO! If we keep basic math in mind, if we understand logic, if we know rhetoric, if we know vocabulary, we can spot this kind of garbage and refute it categorically and call it correctly (what is apparently the only antonym I can find for philosophy) superstition.

This post is for the person who asked me to point to a book that they should read.  Not only should you read the book that is found on this link, you may want to use this material as a vocabulary builder. Please comment after each chapter.

@Simone & KW.-----look at the date for this post---also if you check your reading disk, it will be on one, in other words I would bet that you already have it in your collection and if not I will get it to you.
