  1. Yeah, crop rotation, pests & diseases is a big issue. I don't expect perennial to mean decades: perhaps a few years is more realistic. And my local area, soil type etc will affect which pests & diseases are a problem. Potatoes are a mainstay for growing calories to store over winter, tho I have limited space so tend to grow higher value crops like tomatoes in the potato section of my rotation. It's occurred to me that as well as food, having control of a supply of healthy drinking water is equally important.
  2. What if the energy companies' top executives are just as much part of TPTB as the govt which is taxing them? After all, they'll only be taxed on the super-profits made after they've been exploiting the massive price hikes. So it would be just a transfer of wealth across two sides of TPTB, but which originates from us ordinary folks.
  3. Thanks for the link EW it's a good read. I got the 17th C. reference from wikipedia, I should have known better than to trust that, as obviously a highly biased source. I cancelled my monthly donation to them a while back, but haven't yet done the extra research needed. Re: white vs Ethnic European, the vocab we use for personal identity is all part of this. I used 'white' as it's commonly used although it's obviously not literally true. But the MSM don't encourage us to think for ourselves about this; where for example do the racial categories come from which are used in censuses, surveys, HR systems etc? How can I research that too to look for political bias? Yeah, tribalism (or community to use a gentler term) can be manipulated if we're not spirituality/emotionally mature enough; or a source of great strength and support if we have a little wisdom. And no doubt the elite see themselves as a superior but secret tribe ruling over us little people in the exoteric world. I wonder how the cult leaders deal with dissent and competition in their own ranks? A group of such ruthless and nasty people can hardly be trustworthy even to themselves can they? There must be an iron rule of discipline to avoid civil war within their ranks.
  4. One of my (slowly) ongoing projects is to research the history of racial identity to understand how and why it all began, who were the protagonists in it, and what varieties have existed. So far I've discovered that in Northwest Europe at least, race wasn't much used as an identity until the mid 18th century, for reasons which aren't yet clear to me (people were well aware of the existence of other human cultures and forms, and had experienced many wars and conflicts with them). But at a point when the European elites were expanding their empires, racial identification began to be encouraged along with a variety of judgements such as moral, intellectual and religious. In fact this was the 'age of enlightenment' which saw an end to the 'age of faith', so maybe race was provided as a replacement for religious identity. I'm beginning to see signs of patterns where increased racial identity is coexisting with increasing conflict, discord and power broking. It could be that these are psychologically related, as in people seeking shelter in numbers within tribal communities, when they perceive existential threats. Or it could be that we are all being played and manipulated by agents who understand very well which buttons to press to achieve the goals in their agenda. Clearly my thinking is at an early stage and still a bit muddled and unstructured. But I thought I'd put it on the table as it may help if we can examine the issues from a broader historical perspective. Not that it's easy to find good quality unbiased sources of information. Hopefully some folks here can help me with this and save me from reinventing the wheel!
  5. Another quote from the article: " Judaism laid much of the foundation of all Monotheism (One G^d), Science (One Universe), and Democracy (Equality) in the world. That’s why hatred of Jews is the ultimate ungratefulness, throwing mud on Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Einstein, and Herzl. And therefore, the Holocaust doesn’t compare to any other genocide, Armenian included—though they are all horrific." So monotheism appears to be the foundation stone of the idea of their uniqueness, to this author. I've read a little history of the Jews' progression from polytheistic Canaanite tribe to monotheists with a separate identity, and this wiki article on Monotheism gives a summary: " Judaism is traditionally considered one of the oldest monotheistic religions in the world, although in the 8th century BCE the Israelites were polytheistic, with their worship including the gods El, Baal, Asherah, and Astarte. Yahweh was originally the national god of the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah. During the 8th century BCE, the worship of Yahweh in Israel was in competition with many other cults, described by the Yahwist faction collectively as Baals. The oldest books of the Hebrew Bible reflect this competition, as in the books of Hosea and Nahum, whose authors lament the "apostasy" of the people of Israel, threatening them with the wrath of God if they do not give up their polytheistic cults. As time progressed, the henotheistic cult of Yahweh grew increasingly militant in its opposition to the worship of other gods. Later, the reforms of King Josiah imposed a form of strict monolatrism. After the fall of Judah and the beginning of the Babylonian captivity, a small circle of priests and scribes gathered around the exiled royal court, where they first developed the concept of Yahweh as the sole God of the world. Second Temple Judaism and later Rabbinic Judaism became strictly monotheistic. The Babylonian Talmud references other, "foreign gods" as non-existent entities to whom humans mistakenly ascribe reality and power." This gives me the distinct impression that monotheism wasn't a grassroots movement of the ordinary people but imposed by the rulers on the people. However I'm sure there's a lot more detail to this so I'll leave it there. My own view is that monotheism doesn't come naturally to many of us and needs authority structures like temples and churches to prop it up. In which case, the belief in uniqueness would be a creation of their society's PTB in those historical times, rather than coming from the ordinary people.
  6. Quote from that article: "Yet, Jews are the only Nation not just based on practice, location, or beliefs. Jews are the only People based on an assignment. And their Divinely ordained task is to be exemplary to all of humanity. To be G^d’s ambassadors on earth, fighting for the good of everyone. That means that when one says that Jews are just like everyone else, you’re a bigot. You don’t need to look down on Jews to be Antisemitic." But if Judaism isn't only based on beliefs etc, what is the statement that they have a divinely ordained task if it isn't a belief? He seems to be taking it as an objective fact rather than a relativistic religious belief (and we all have our beliefs).
  7. and the "problems" are contrived constructs to create fear and a scarcity mindset. That leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy with rising prices, to which the elite are insulated. How many more times will our people fall for this trick before we realise we've been had for a long time.
  8. What interests me is the precedents which are created by these events. In effect we have allowed a time slot at the start of sports matches where political expressions and demonstrations can be freely made. To be consistent and free from hypocrisy, they cannot now complain when footballers and other sports people use this opportunity to give free expression to whichever cause they want to support. Will they be courageous and free-spirited enough to give vent to their feelings in future? Or is this whole thing an example of conformity to social pressures due to the loss of personal empowerment and self-confidence which have been eroded during the last few generations? There's an opportunity here: let's take it footballers!
  9. blockquote widgetdiv widget Thanks Mac it's news to me. But most illegal migrants are undocumented so there's no evidence of who they actually are, apart from whatever story they give the authorities. Yet that's good enough for our UN supplied legal system. So in effect we are giving priority to unverified people who claim to be foreigners, over our own people who will have some identity in the system.
  10. White -> black = equality, diversity and inclusion. Black-> white = cultural appropriation, supremacy and racism. It's the mathematics of multiculturalism.
  11. Agreed. Also let's go further and expose the whole idea of "energy companies" as the total phoney it is. It's exactly the same electricity, gas, cables, pipes, power stations, etc whichever "supplier" we use. All we're changing is the admin. At least the water companies are more open about being a monopoly, though lord knows why they need to be privatised anyway!
  12. Maybe our own homeless citizens should try putting on a foreign accent and claiming to be refugees. In a way they already are refugees, from a system which rejects them and demeans them, so perhaps it would be a better outcome for them.
  13. I belong to a homesteading forum which shares many suggestions for home produce. My latest experiment is to try growing perennial vegetables to reduce the tendency for gluts at certain times of year, as well as reducing the workload by avoiding re-sowing annually. So far the cottager's kale, lamb's lettuce and Jerusalem artichokes are growing and cropping well but I've yet to see how many years they survive. The Good King Henry (perennial spinach) is proving hard to germinate but I'll keep trying.
  14. Having lived through the 70s in my childhood, I'm a little more phlegmatic about the prospects of a revolt. There were shocks like petrol going up to 50p a gallon, sugar rationing, power cuts and uncollected rubbish due to strikes, but our stoicism and general resignation in the UK resulted in only a swing towards the Thatcherism and yuppyism of the 80s. Some revolt! I hope there isn't serious suffering, but I'm still seeing too much clinging to national and international leaders for solving our problems, rather than asking ourselves how we can deal with this in our local communities.
  15. I have total sympathy, I've had the hum for years. But it's a global phenomenon and perhaps Holmfield are the latest addition to the list. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hum
  16. This quite a dilemma for the, previously quite united front of PC. Do they recognise male to female trans women equally with 'from-birth' women, or as a separate category? Now that traditional feminism has prevailed and become mainstream, it's perhaps inevitable that another division in society is required to prevent too much unity. Otherwise there's the danger that independent power blocks will emerge outside the overlords' control.
  17. Me too. At one time there was talk of White Holes as the opposite of Black Holes where the matter was spewed back out again. I used to have discussions on black holes in Yahoo Answers before it closed down, but few people seem to understand them well enough to give good answers. One of the difficulties I encounter is the time dilation effect, caused by the relativity of time. My line of inquiry and level of understanding runs like this: As an object approaches the event horizon (EH), time dilation means that to the outside observer relative time slows; the object appears to slow down and hover over the EH, never actually crossing it, but just getting more red-shifted. To the object itself, looking back at the rest of the universe, the opposite appears to happen and the outside universe speeds up until it reaches infinite speed as it crosses the EH. The object would literally see the whole future of the universe at the point of crossing. Therefore from our point of view, in our time, black holes don't really exist because it takes an infinite amount of time for matter to cross the EH and create a black hole. From the black hole's point of view, it's so far into the future the rest of the universe no longer exists. Then there's the question of what lies at the "centre" of a black hole. Is it a true singularity? Does space-time as we understand it exist within the EH? We can, theoretically, measure the size of the event horizon, but the closer you approach it, does that measurement still apply when space is stretched so severely? Let alone inside the EH: does it still make sense to think of getting out a tape measure and stopwatch and making measurements when space-time has been infinitely warped?
  18. Self-reference is the essence of I, it's logically paradoxical yet is a source of profound insights.
  19. PS The system won't let me send you a PM, is that by design?
  20. No you're not wrong. When BAME take over running first the public sector, then the wider society, will the surviving declining whites be treated with the same respect and support as their ancestors gave the incomers to allow them to rise to the top? But now we are desensitised to the rapid change in ideology, and inculcated with such short-term memory that I suspect the agenda will simply tick off another task completed and move on. Can it be a coincidence that the rise in so-called "equality" in the social justice arena (that's a word with multiple meanings!), there's been a huge increase of economic inequality, leading to a social stratification benefiting the top 1% of oligarchs mainly at the expense of middle earners. This fits the double pyramid social structure they are building where the demographics are shaped like the regular pyramid; but with power and wealth measured by the upside-down pyramid.
  21. Nice post, unfortunately I’m out of likes today :) "White passing" is a new term to me. Part of this agenda seems to be about keeping us off balance by changing the terminology and theory of CRT so frequently. So now you don't even have to identify as white yourself to be guilty, it's enough that someone else decides you're white. I agree with your point about the gradual ratcheting up of white hatred.
  22. What I don't understand is, what's so special about covid? After all, there's plenty of other vaccinations to introduce a "product" into us, especially for children. Also many other medical treatments where a product can be introduced into the body. Perhaps even contaminants within processed food, over-the-counter tablets etc. How do we know which treatments and procedures are safe any more?
  23. Don't get too excited, it's being replaced by multiple regional centres ... "It will be replaced by regional centres at existing children’s hospitals offering more “holistic care” with “strong links to mental health services ... It has announced the launch of two clinics for children with gender dysphoria by next spring,” https://uk.news.yahoo.com/gender-clinic-shut-down-amid-131158027.html
  24. I wonder if it will have its own police force? This reminds me of the 2000 AD comics I used to read.
