    Thanks! I often read articles relating to neuroscience, but since I do so for knowledge rather than for science (i.e. professionally), I rarely save the links. I figured that such research would be quickly followed up on, but I missed...

    And yes, I recognize that my immediately prior post contains a lot of couldas, wouldas and shouldas......

    Your observations are, to some degree, supported by brain imaging science. I have carefully followed such research, as it has a far greater scientific basis than most psychology/psychiatry research/theories. I would direct you to: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-political-brain/ I recall more significant research...

    Now wait a minute. On the one hand I can understand quitting this blog. But why in the world would you quit reading the works of a brilliant author just because you don't like one poster on his blog? The...

    I was speaking to what has happened in the past. The social revolution that has been going on since the 1970's should be undeniable. Acceptance of THOSE WHO ARE NOT LIKE US has significantly increased to the point that the...

    I cannot disagree with you concerning the usefulness of a working theory of the mind to political manipulators. I do not doubt that such a model exists, but I cannot believe that they are there yet. I hope. If you...

    Unless you really want to be faced with this moral dilemma, don't ever go to Texarkana, Texas, U.S. I actually saw such a sign in a window of a Bar B Q restaurant in 1998. I got the hell out...

    I would posit that there are very few individuals capable of "this manipulative stuff semi-mechanically," as there are far too many variables to control. Both Intellectual understanding and intuitional leaps must occur for accurate manipulation at that level. Most people...

    By the way, I suspect the social reactions that are giving rise to fascism across the globe are, arguably, the next stage in a cultural version of future shock. Technology has allowed greater communication between people, which has created a...

    Oh....darn...I just realized that my italicization of quotes from other people's posts were not going through....My sincere apologies to those who posted them...I just outed myself as an incompetent computer operator, didn't I? LOL....

    If you want an adult version, Bannon etc basically took 10+ years of CNN, Alex Jones, FoxNews etc and looked at the cadences of tone / emotional engagement / hooks. It doesn't matter WHAT he says. It's about the Song....

    My very reluctant money is halfway between Four & Five. Never, ever underestimate the gullibility of people falling for a Theocracy, because "Christianity/Islam is a force for good/purity" or some such shit. Nor the amazingly long time it normally takes...

    Meanwhile, it's possible ... that TrumPence might not have been elected at all ??? Any thoughts on this? It is certainly conceivable, although I tend to doubt it. Most of the voting machines in the U.S. now are essentially part...

    Not with a bang but a whimper.....The Horror, The Horror And no Lake Victoria in sight.......

    I maintain that Probability Wave Two is a possible outcome, as I am not convinced that Der Gruppenf├╝hrer Pence is anything more than a tool for the Beige Dictatorship. He strikes me as a mix between George W. Bush and...

    My sympathies to OGH as well. My mother suffered from Alzheimer's, and so I know what you are going through. The one thing I can tell you is that even someone suffering from dementia can experience joy, so try to...

    Lets see them beat the Cthulic Minions!...

    P.S. I have no doubt that Russia has been involved in the manipulation of the U.S. election, Brexit, etc. I have no doubt they have used their internet special forces to rouse the racists and nationalists across Europe and the...

    I think this conversation has gone far afield from the initial proposition. I am still interested in Charlie's post, and so I am responding solely to that - as it relates to the U.S. election of Donald Trump. I recognize...

    Are you sure this isn't the Laundry Files universe? Nightmare Orange F├╝rher is here and I don't think Bob is ready!...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    I don't see either Brexit or the Trump election being the end of the story. In geopolitics there are actions and reactions, reactions and consequences. The rise of fascism across the globe is a natural reaction to the inevitable collapse...
