11/05/201911 Comments

James joins Luke of WeAreChange for a discussion about some of the bigger truths behind the news headlines. Why does the establishment media (and the so-called alternatives who merely chase the MSM’s tail) focus on hate, fear and paralysis? Can we model solutions and cooperation? Is there a way to overcome our natural human tendencies to defend our team regardless of the truth? Find out in this far-reaching conversation.

    Great summary guys!

    Indeed, I do see a trend in independent media (Esp. Alex Jones) to now be on “Trump’s side”. Although I like Trump – I know he is not squeaky clean politically speaking, and the death of the Isis leader (whom apparently has four or more lives) is certainly proof of that.

    Although Trump seems anti-establishment, his cabinet and other advisors are very much a part of it. (For example, Pompeo and others remain and are still influential).

    Take also 2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard – whom is undoubtedly against the regime-change wars. However, she is a member of the CFR (cue nightmare organ music)!

    Anyhoo, both you and Luke I see as truly not caught up in the left/right divide…and I sincerely appreciate that.

    Don’t get me wrong, I still respect Alex Jones…it’s just that he seems to be passing a blind eye to Trump’s apparent faults.

    I’m alarmed that a progressive would want us all to proclaim that we are doing good and there’s nothing to worry about. I give thanks all the time for the good life I have, even though it’s rather crappy. But I realize that it could be, as IT IS FOR MANY MILLIONS OF OTHERS, much worse. I live in Toronto, Canada. It’s relatively peaceful here. There’s lots of life here. I have coffee shops and restos and this and that. I don’t have much money (I earn the minimum wage although I’ve been full time, permanent in security since 1999)but don’t require much in order to have all that I need and much of what I want. (My life is small scale, rather than large scale. But who needs large scale?)

  3. Arby says:

    I’m on the Left, period. The Left: Those who believe that we should have socialism, or capitalism, for ‘all’.

    The Right: Those who believe that we should have socialism, or capitalism, for our tribe only.

    I’m leftwing and it doesn’t stop me from being objective. As someone who doesn’t even tell white lies, I will always acknowledge truth and facts whatever the source. But that doesn’t mean that I’m ‘not’ leftwing.

    • flammable says:

      People get sensitive of Left or Right because they automatically assume its just voting for a candidate that will force unwanted laws onto everyone.

      We can establish whatever political leanings we have by forming communities with willing participants.

      Our politics does not have to be limited to voting for government representatives to handle everything. It is our daily interactions and what we choose to spend our time on that should make the bulk of our “politics”.

    The show-stopper for me was 90 seconds into the discussion with Mr. Corbett’s big Truth;

    “Human nature is human nature and will never change and most people don’t really want truth”.

    The statement itself isn’t surprising; just that Mr. Corbett said it. For some reason. Really startled me.

      QUOTE from ManBearPig

      Mr. Corbett’s big Truth
      “Human nature is human nature and will never change and most people don’t really want truth”.

    • s.jamieson says:

      I felt the same surprise that it was JC who was expressing this gloomy truth, well, “seeming” truth. He personifies positive energy!

    • manbearpig says:

      Since that startling statement I’ve discovered another perspective on “universal expectations” of truth:

      Indeed, for those who seek to influence others Spanish jesuit philopher Baltasar Graciàn has (quite) a few recommendations, among them:

      “45 The truth, but not the whole truth;

      Nothing demands more caution than the truth: it is the lancet of the heart. It requires as much to tell the truth as to conceal it…”

      “99 Reality and Appearance,

      Things pass for what they seem, not for what they are. Few see inside; many take to the outside.

      It is not enough to be right, if right seem false and ill.”

      hmmmmm……… pragmatic if not laudable…

  5. zed says:

    I tend to see the mental gymnastics happen when you or any other independent researcher puts forward evidence that anthropocentric climate change is a sham. It’s pretty annoying to see relatively free thinkers hit a brick wall when factual information goes counter to one of their core beliefs, especially a belief that was created from obvious propaganda.

    No one is saying pollution is good but to see the only environmental subject in the forefront being about carbon when there’s literally plastic pollution everywhere including the Arctic and in our own bodies and the exorbitant amount of toxic chemicals/heavy metals in the food, air and water. Don’t even get me started on desertification and lack of nutrients in our food caused by monoculture and factory farming. Nevermind those obvious and tangible dangers everyone, it’s the carbon dioxide that you’re exhaling that’s the real perceived threat to the natural world. Stophaving children, pay a carbon tax and live in a smart supercity. /s

  6. NES says:

    Most people really don’t want truth. AGREE and I’m not at all startled by your statement, James. You are correct.

    Proof? Ask anyone who has spent time among the psychologcial professions working directly with clients. Truth hurts people who have built a ‘belief system’ around a thing, place, person, process, report, study, whatever. I ‘believe in’ this or that is just one big juicy rationalization to stop or remove the pain of knowing a truth and to prevent incorporating its fact(s) which must lead to personal change when acknowledged. Truth is painful when change is the end result.

    I’m more surprised that anyone here takes exception to or is startled by his statement. I doubt he’s made a truer one. James, like anyone, has opinions, too.

    HOWEVER, he also stated, very clearly, thereafter that most people do not want truth IF . . .”it hurts them in what they’ve constucted their identity around’. As I said, juicy rationalization.
