Redemption Requires Better Cognition

April 15, 2021

We are ruled by plutocrats, and the media they own, molding minds… They have instilled their values to the entire system… Including fostering deliberate lack of capability for increased cognition as a fundamental value. 

Plutocratically financed politicians have long installed laws which encourage homelessness, destitution, an underclass. For example San Francisco dynamited high density cheap housing, decades ago, to great applause, replacing it by what are now four million dollar homes for the wealthy. San Francisco considers that a family of four earning nearly thrice the median US family income is poor and needs financial aid…(That does not mean the family gets the aid). 

When one looks at health care spending, the truth is blatant: the US spends much more for inferior results, that the other leading countries. The difference, seen from afar, can be depicted as corruption. And indeed many health care professionals are much wealthier in the US, and politicians are wined, dined, and financed by their lobbyists. 

Yesterday I sent an extract of an interview of President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser to a major US newspaper. The interview was never published in the USA on Main Stream Media. He explained that the Afghan war was launched deliberately by the US. Guess what? The newspaper blocked my comment: it’s very important the readership stays biased. This plutocratic cognition box, small and tightly closed is how the plutocracy keeps on going, increasingly dividing We The People against ourselves. 

Two coalition airstrikes eliminated Islamic State fighters and facilities in the Nangarhar and Jowzjan provinces of Afghanistan, Feb. 6, 2018. The U.S. dropped more bombs and other munitions in Afghanistan during the first ten months 2018 than in any other full year since at least 2006, when documentation began.

Yesterday, the New York Times ran an editorial on the origins of Afghan war (which killed millions). For the NYT, the Afghan war started with 9/11. I sent the truth: the US launched the war on and before July 3, 1979. Under Carter. I also sent the proof.NYT censored my comment… They always do on this particular point, although I quote Carter’s national Security Adviser. So that the NYT readership can keep on believing the US was the innocent victim in a war it launched, killing millions, the ultimate form of racism.We need better morality. The strict point is that just not knowing what one is doing should not be enough to deserve forgiveness, in contradiction with what the pseudo-crucified implicitly implies. The key, and crux is that better cognition is a prerequisite for progress, and nearly so for justified forgiveness (in contrast to calculating forgiveness).

The war of the USA in Afghanistan started by proxy in the 1970s. Then on July 3, 1979, president Jimmy Carter signed a secret order. An interview of Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter’s National Security Adviser in Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21 January 1998, reveals this. It was never published in the USA. Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secret until now, is completely different. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention…. That secret operation was an excellent idea… The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire… What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Muslims or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

The US Deep and Dark State launched a war which killed millions.

You want woke? First learn English, and then history. Real history, not just what they plutocrats and their universities told you was history.

Perverse Christianism has infected cognition with a reduced notion of redemption. Time to get rid of it. If one wants to deserve forgiveness, one should know more than one did before, when engaging in sin, error, malum prohibitum, etc. In democracy, properly done, we are all responsible, including of not protesting when one should (good side of Black Lives Matter)… But, without proper and better cognition, all is for naught….

P/S: Guess what? The New York Times just published my comment, 24 hours late, when nobody will read it, and after I waxed lyrical in several places about their racist censorship (racist because killing a few million Afghans is not worth mentioning: only special color ives and lives are worthy; Afghans don’t count…) Did the NYT consult with the Deep Dark State?… Girls want to know… This delayed-publication-of-comment trick is one way the NYT mostly censors me, without really censoring me all the time… On the positive side, that forces the censors to read me. and feel bad about their perverse deliberate state of ignorance…
