    Blog: America's Suicide: Police brutality  


    I have been looking carefully at police behavior lately -- through the corners of my eyes of course.

    Today I saw two cars pulled over just now in the in pouring rain in Highland. Both cars had their driver's side doors open, both drivers were standing behind their cars getting soaked, and both police officers were leaning inside the cars looking around.

    Quite frankly, as I learn more about the functions of the human, especially with respect to neurology and morality, I find it difficult to believe that humans are "basically criminal," as this kind of enforcement would imply. So these two attempts at search and seizure would then not only be rights violations, but immoral acts, as I believe a warrants or "cause" is necessary for searches.

    Because of what I have learned about neurology, I have suspicions about the neural "facilities" of these officers. Do they have the ability to understand that what they are doing is wrong, not from a legal or "psychotic" perspective, but from an empathic perspective? It appears extremely likely to me that these police may have defective, or perhaps disconnected, empathic neurons: specifically spindle and mirror cells.

    If this is so, then it would also seem likely that the "system" for recruiting and training police is promoting people who are lacking these key human neurons; If this is the case, then the police may be largely defective. To extend this idea further, investigators lacking the mirror neuron should have almost no way to determine if a suspect is lying as people known to be missing this neuron are easily fooled.

    In my experience, this is as bad as I have seen things-- our state enforcement officials here seem determined to hurt people, possibly more so than in other states. Why? Are the officials likewise missing key neurons? In the very near future these neurons will be visible to magnetic scanning equipment.

    I am not too worried about the police myself in this regard. As a former trucker, I am exceedingly careful about speed limits, lights, turns, and intersections, so I don't expect to get pulled over myself. And if I do, I know how to act -- really friendly !!

    Here is a debate on this very subject here on care2: Police_brutality_mentality_CLICK

    { else }   Blog: American Suicide (2): UN Hypocrisy promotes globalist terror  
    American Suicide, Part Two: UN hypocrisy

    I visited the UN head quarters with some friends from out of town recently; I found many other things on display there that disturbed me significantly. So much so, I can no longer see the UN as a peace-keeping organization, but a significant source for the world most important problems; it is now a puppet organization for the global anti-empathic, those who seek, through their sickness, continued pain for this planet.

    When I entered the main hall, where the sputnik hangs and the pendulum swings, I was confronted with a huge display showing the results of global warming, specifically the melting of antarctic ice. In the display were photographs of an ice sculpture built in the UN garden this last December; of course it melted in this unusually warm weather. Also visible was an exhibit commemorating Al Gore's Nobel peace prize for his public global warming effort.

    But when I walked into the bookstore, the first thing I noticed was a prominently displayed copy of "The World is Flat," a book that describes how free-market global capitalism is saving the world specifically by fleecing of the American people of their jobs and savings for the benefit of the Indian Hindu upper caste and the Chinese communist party. "The World is Flat" won an award from the dominant free market bank, Goldman Sacs, for its author is Thomas Friedman, a New York Times writer. (Please note these names.)

    With further browsing I found that the UN's official economic books all promote trade liberalization, another term for global capitalism, as the only route to world peace. Free market liberalism, or global capital if you prefer, describes only a system of uncontrolled resource exploitation, generally starting with energy resources. The free trade marketeers describe uncontrolled resource exploitation as a kind of human right. The destruction resulting from uncontrolled resource exploitation is hence described as beneficial as it creates for people wealth: economic expansion. Since capital freedom can be rationalized as a right, and since rights are natural, the resulting destruction -- the destruction of the planet and with it the human race -- is a "natural" result of human evolution in free marketeers' perverted view.

    Not limiting its anti-empathy to environmental resource destruction, the UN, in alliance with the global capital, promotes not only natural resource exploitation, but the exploitation of every resource, especially the human resource. When capital seeks to exploit a resource, or "develop it" as it says, local communities, often tribally native, are destroyed and the destroyed community's residents are usually forced into urban ghettos to suffer; their natural environment having been stolen -- annexed for development -- or made uninhabitable and unsurvivable. Capital further rationalizes the pain it inflicts by yet another perversion; suffering behaviorally alters those who are suffering; the suffering themselves learn to exploit to succeed, just as capital does. Ultimately the exploitation of the suffering is self-destructive: drugs and prostitution, where prostitution is something, of course, that capital has historically enjoyed.

    Also most prominently in the front of the bookstore is a UN text promoting the humanization of the digital age: more hypocrisy. It was, in fact, a UN resolution that effectively removed "freedom of information" as a human right from the UN charter when UN delegates voted to halt the flow of the Internet information across international borders, or frontiers. Interestingly, it was an alliance between Microsoft, through the nation of Australia, and various terror nations that ultimately nullified knowledge and information communication as a human rights. (It may also be important to note here the involvement of the nation of Australia, an nation that has recently rivaled the US by destroying its tribally native cultures.)

    The UN is a consortia of nations, and each of these nations is controlled by a single dominant culture whose elite exploits dominated cultures within each respective nation. Historically in the US the dominant culture has been "White" and historically its elite has practiced slavery, promoting its notorious "White racist" misinformation (from Joel Spring). If all nations are socially structured in similar ways -- it is biased, and hence unscientific, to think otherwise -- the UN can therefore only be a meeting of the elite of each of these dominant cultures; cultures of various skin colors dress customs, but mentally similar -- to the KKK. These cultural elitists meeting in a peaceful and communicative environment cannot help but join around their common goal, the uncontrolled exploitation of resources, to create globalization.

    Knowing the nature of the elite, and also dominant cultures, it seems reasonable that there would be a controlling culture within this unified globally dominant body that calls itself the "multiculture." The interests of this controlling dominant culture would then become an axis, or purpose, for its specific needs. Since we know resource exploitation is the singular goal of each of these dominant and elite cultures, and that capital as incredible amounts of investment cash is necessary to initiate significant resource exploitation in the contemporary global environment, we can assume that lion's share of control should go to culture with the strongest capital struture. We find more clues in the UN bookstore, texts on free market liberalization written by New Yorkers working in New York and being funded by the Goldman Sacs global bank, also head-quartered in New York.

    The "hot spot" of global conflict is at this very moment is the Gaza strip, a tiny region squeezed between Israel and Egypt over populated with Palestinian refugees. It has been isolated by nation of Israel, and the Palestinian people of the Gaza strip survive only by the charity of the United States. Israel seeks to force these Palestinian refugees southward into Egypt by isolating it to the point of starvation so that it can annex it to develop it as a real estate resource. Egypt in turn is forcing the desperate Palestinian refugees back into the Gaza strip, guaranteeing conflict.

    When I looked at the display honoring the UN's Peace keeping troops -- surely the UN's most significant contribution -- and Palestine, for all its suffering, was missing from the Peace-keepers' somewhat cryptic world map.

    The Palestinian Gaza Strip crisis is nowhere visible in the UN lobby or in its exhibits. Instead visitors are shown displays of the joys of Judaism, and the especially the feminist Judaism. Added to this were my observations in the official book store with their resultant conclusions; they developed for me further clues to explain such obvious bias, and perhaps begin to explain the psychosis of the global capital that the UN seems to understand, yet cannot help but promote.

    America: World's first suicidal nation
    Why is "global capital" destroying America?

    Global capital is through its policy-making economists destroying the US by shipping US wealth , skills, and assets to other countries, primarily those that most successfully repress their people -- primarily China for manufactured goods and India for services.

    Why? I can think of two possible reasons. One is subjugation; someone whats the US to be weak and controllable, for some strategic reason, this would be the historical argument.

    Another possible reason is linked to the free-market, a fairly new concept in historical terms; according to free market economics, everyone must pay -- nothing can be free.

    The problem for the free marketeers is would be that Americans are the most charitable people in history, or were until the first devastating crash, the tech crash of 2000 that brought economic decline to a depression levels. Everyone I have talked to assumes there will be an equal crash soon based on the housing credit bubble -- but this time American families have no savings to rely on.

    This is a good question; this is the first time in history a major power has from within handed over its assets to foreign powers that never even asked for them.

    Infiltration ??? Savants ???
