Barbarian Caprice

From Billy Beck:

"The law is laid down so that the crime need not be proven. The process is expedited without any impertinence of defense."
(shorter People v. Bransford, 8 Cal.4th 894 (1994). See DUI Blog)

Does everyone understand why I keep calling it "Endarkenment"? It's the counter-Enlightenment, kids.


Facts
do not matter.

Try to understand: it means that there is no reference to reality, and the power of the state gets to make it all up as they go along. If that ruins your life, then you get to suck it up and be a good little citizen in the name of whatever depravity it is that drives this sort of thing.


Try to imagine what the culture will come to as this epistemic dynamic is extended into the future. You might as well live under a fifth century barbarian king.


Is that what you want?

And often those same kings met ghastly fates. Edward II (the effeminate light-in-the-loafers, heir-apparent in Braveheart) had a red hot iron poker shoved up his keester for example! Butt (pardon the pun) as it relates to today’s set of tyrants, no punishment would be too vile as well-earned payment for the betrayal of their oaths to the Constitution, and the depredations they have visited on this nation.

Thanks for this posting. I did not know of this limitation on the machine. If I ever get stopped after having a drink I will refuse and demand a blood test instead.

A book (I believe it was "God's Debris by the guy who does the Dilbert cartoons) outlined how to effectively thwart cyber monitoring of email messages. Simply get a hard copy of a picture, handwrite your secret little message, scan the picture and email it as a attachment. Optical character recognition, if used, likely will not pick the handwriting on the proverbial wall in the picture. Heck, if you use photoshop and use a tiny font colored white superimposed over a a picture of a field covered in snow, you may have a hard time finding the message you know is there.

Not surprising is how the government needs to spend billions of dollars, err, Federal Reserve Notes, just to "do something!!!" no mater how ineffectual. But then, I would rather have an ineffectual government than one that is effective at crushing dissent.

While they make up the rules you have to abide by the future rules and the past rules. This is evident in our war against terror. If you do certain things that are legal during a time, the next review time the same actions might be "illegal". This is not fair. Let the show trials begin.

If people want government to do everything for them. They are headed for a nightmare. There will be no safe group of people based on religion, skin color or skills learned. It always leads to the government against your own freedom. Look at history.
