In Part 1 we look at the sweep of dominant narratives built upon 2000 years of the Judaeo Christian Tradition and contrast it to the Orthodoxy of Abrahamic verbal Torah tradition.
The Tower of Babel with knobs on in part 2 as we look at the phenomenon of Chinese whispers, divide and rule merchants of doubt and spreading facts irresponsibly.

The Alternative media as with the MSM has become a place of repeated theory and the Audience is becoming static and infected with groupthink. Ryan should write a Book and do a book tour, he is a clever guy although I sense he is frustrated that more people do not give him accolades.
Social Media is a consumer of self-worth and manufacturer of fragile EGO, narcissism, and delusion. There is a Welsh bloke who regularly interviews Paul Craig Roberts, the Welsh bloke spends most of his questions blowing smoke up PCRś arse. A remarkable thing about James Corbett ( also based in Japan) is how fresh he keeps his work and even with James, I can’t stomach watching the regular segment he was chatting with some other guy for an inordinate length of time.
The Musk Letter from Greenlight is pretty solid I am sure. The Management of Expectations in the tech market is not something that anyone has got the hang of and anyone that does is fired for being a Cassandra. Things are complicated in that as with Solar, Wind and Energy storage technologies there is real progress but also the reality that The existing paradigm cannot be ditched anytime soon and is, in fact, part of the solution and not the problem which the new technologies are solving.
I think the problem is one of not only expectations but also of spinning what the PR people hope will be self-fulfilling prophecies, the Rove type Actors in History idea. In itself, the Actors in history idea is just a variation of Hans Christian Andersons “Emperor’s new clothes “
If we are headed for a Repeat of 2008/9 and a new Lehmans moment Mike ? where will the preferred Scapegoats come from? Musk would be more like another Enron than another Lehmans? Theresa May blamed New Labour and Profligacy in public spending for the 2008/9 crisis in here Speech at the Tory conference, The Austerity Narrative is still very raw and how much of the current economic malaise on main street be laid at the door of Austerity and too much of newly created debt-based money going into pumping up the financialised economy?
Tesla is a small part of a bigger picture, what the real budget is to get the show back on the road rests in the availability of Energy and Resources which are properly directed to areas of real market need as opposed to artificially created Market wants? This is obscured by the nonsense narratives of Money as a scarce resource. I suspect that Bezos ( Amazon) and Zuckerberg ( Facebook) UBER possibly, may be in the crosshairs for scapegoating as well. Personally, I would be looking at the Hedge Funds/Private equity funds which are in fact just a new front for what we used to call Merchant Banks, Black Rock and the long list of familiar names in the MEGA m&A action are where I think the Crosshairs should be trained but, I suspect that yet again the next crisis will see Banks getting away with it and ending up with the Jewels in the pile of shit, one of which in all likelihood will end up being Tesla,
https://therealdeal.com/2017/11/06/banks-are-far-more-exposed-to-risky-real-estate-loans-than-you-think-thanks-to-this-loophole/ This article has stood out in my mind from what I have read over the past month
Dr Michael Hundson, author of a new book, ‘… and forgive them their debts’, about the history of debt forgiveness. Hudson explains that the rulers of Byzantium wiped out the savings of rich people by forgiving debts because cancelling debts does not cause economic crises but prevents them. He explained that the Bronze Age Babylonians had worked out the mathematics of this. Compound interest grows exponentially, whereas productivity can only grow linearly, and so whatever the interest rate, national debt will eventually outstrip productivity. Forgiving debt seems to me to be rough justice for the individual, but the rulers weren’t so interested in the individual; they were interested in keeping the economy going, and having a stock of fit young people for their wars. I’ve got the book on order, but in the meantime I’ve been looking at a review of the topic, written in 2012, which makes reference to the work of Michael Hudson, titled, ‘The long tradition of debt cancellation in Mesopotamia and Egypt from the 3rd to the 1st millennium BC JC’.
Economist and author, Michael Hudson, in his new book “…And Forgive Them Their Debts: Lending, Foreclosure and Redemption From Bronze Age Finance to the Jubilee Year,” shares with journalist Chris Hedges how Ancient cultures forgave debt cyclically to prevent debt peonage and the rise of an oligarch elite.
I use conformist in the sense of Conforming to the Strictures of a Branch or school of thought within an over arching religious/State/Political Structure.
I have been struck by the themes of Orthodox beginnings lapsing into king-making and idolatry, King Making and breaking into Iconoclasm and from there to orthodoxy refreshed.

I watched the speech and for May it was actually I think her best performance.
It was full of crap but well delivered for the Audience and sufficient to buy her some time.
Lots of attacks on Corbyn, and lots of unsupportable Hype etc etc, that said to a receptive gullible audience and with a press that hates Corbyn as much as the Establishment robots
On the dancing onto the stage , yes yuck but as the rest of it went much better than anyone would have expected and as no News programmes are likely to take the cheap shots they would against Corbyn
Sickening stuff on ww1 and ww2 etc , financially illiterate and all par for the course but as you say these are the morons who pretend to run the show.
Good RBS doc on I player.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k76X53yfONY&t=3s There is quite a lot to learn from this tragic Case Mike, this latest from Sonia Poulton well worth watching she asks a lot of questions which touch on wider issues than the tragedy of the loss of Madeleine McCann. Virtual Reality it seems is not just a Digital phenomenon.
the “US” that others see. Human Psychology is the apparatus that processes Ego and our outward interactions with other people in accordance with what we think they are seeing and want to see. That Behaviour , the wish to please or be approved of, is where manipulation comes in, where consent is manufactured, if you will.
SOME BIG LIES OF SCIENCE
“THE MAJORITY OF POLITICIANS, ON THE EVIDENCE AVAILABLE TO US, ARE INTERESTED NOT IN TRUTH BUT IN POWER AND IN THE MAINTENANCE OF THAT POWER. TO MAINTAIN THAT POWER IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT PEOPLE REMAIN IN IGNORANCE, THAT THEY LIVE IN IGNORANCE OF THE TRUTH, EVEN THE TRUTH OF THEIR OWN LIVES. WHAT SURROUNDS US THEREFORE IS A VAST TAPESTRY OF LIES, UPON WHICH WE FEED.” – HAROLD PINTER, NOBEL PRIZE LECTURE (LITERATURE), 2005
Has the Holocaust replaced Calvary at the Christian festival of Easter?
Guest essay by Eric Worrall
Psychology Today author Patricia Prijatel thinks the silence of Germans oppressed by the NAZIs is comparable to not talking about the alleged dangers of anthropogenic climate change.

Massacre of the Innocents
|Events in the|
|Life of Jesus
according to the Gospels
In the New Testament, the Massacre of the Innocents is the incident in the nativity narrative of the Gospel of Matthew in which Herod the Great, king of Judea, orders the execution of all male children two years old and under in the vicinity of Bethlehem. Most modern biographers of Herod, and probably a majority of biblical scholars, dismiss Matthew’s story as an invention. The Church has claimed the children murdered in Jesus’s stead as the first Christian martyrs, and their feast –Holy Innocents Day – is celebrated on 28 December.
We are the most qualified real climatologists to ever come out as global warming skeptics, including even more than Dr. Richard Lindzen, Dr. Judith Curry, and Dr. Roy Spencer, although we acknowledge their courage. We only came out afterPresident Trump was elected because before that it would have been futile.
Unlike most scientists “counted” in the scientific consensus on global warming we are real climate scientists. Our graduate careers included numerous courses in climate and we have done extensive research in climate, including climate modeling and climate proxies (past climates). Doing both is unusual. Not only have we actually used and run climate models but we have actually programmed them and so fully understand their (huge) weaknesses. Unlike many we don’t just ignorantly use the climate proxy data produced by others but we have taken courses and done research on climate proxies and so fully understand their (huge) weaknesses.
For those, mostly non-scientists, who are foolish enough to believe (and espouse) that peer review means that what is written is true, every word one of us writes is actually read by the other before publication. Scientists today often don’t have time to even scan the current literature, never mind carefully read papers for peer review. Often a peer reviewer simply looks at the reputations of, or if he is friends with, the paper’s authors to decide on whether the paper should be published. This is especially true for scientists who are non-native English speakers since English is the language of science and reading English carefully is a tedious task.
We do NOT get paid by the oil companies or anyone else to question global warming. We are not disgruntled employeestrying to get back at our bosses. We just think climate science is one of the most fascinating sciences there is and to turn it into a lie for career advancement and political purposes is unconscionable.
No, we are no longer “working” climate scientists, which has been spuriously used to attack our credibility. After many years we became so disgusted at what climate science had been turned into that we quit. Just another example of the unqualified driving out the qualified until all that are left are unqualified but working climate scientists. In any case, we think we can do more good for climate science now by reforming it from outside, starting with cutting its funding.
I (Dr. Duane Thresher) started my own IT consulting (for VIPs) business, Apscitu. The same characteristics that made me, in the absolute sense, an excellent climate scientist — being very qualified and insistent on doing things right — make me an excellent IT consultant. There is however also a plague of incompetence to be fought in IT.
