“Thus, the major output of the modern international Mass Media consists of only four categories:
1. Good presented as bad
2. Bad presented as Good
(That is to say simple inversion)
3. Good presented as Good for a bad reason
4. Bad presented as bad for a bad reason
(That is to say explanatory inversion)
These four categories, which can be summarized as either simple or explanatory inversion, account for all sustained and high impact modern major Mass Media stories without any exceptions.”

I wonder, Momus,
Whether shadows of the dead sit somewhere and look with deep laughter
On men who play in terrible earnest the old, known, solemn repetitions of history.
A droning monotone soft as sea laughter hovers from your kindliness of bronze,

Anti-semitism, Zionism and Imperialism. “all alike, find reason on their side” did Pope wear a funny hat? Don’t mention the War.

Bottom Line
Both Petanque and bocce are boules sports. They are very similar in nature and rules, so it is easy to confuse one with the other. The differences are in the size of the teams, the size of the terrain, and the throwing style.

On the seventh day of the month in the prytany of Zeus and the presidency of Posidon Apollo in the chair the following Bill introduced by Sleep was read by Momus son of Night before a true and lawful meeting of the Assembly whom Fortune direct.

Whereas numerous persons both Greeks and barbarians being in no way entitled to the franchise have by means unknown procured their names to be enrolled on our register filling the Heavens with false Gods troubling our banquets with a tumultuous rout of miscellaneous polyglot humanity and causing a deficiency in the supplies of ambrosia and nectar whereby the price of the latter commodity owing to increased consumption has risen to four pounds the half-pint:

And whereas the said persons have presumptuously forced themselves into the places of genuine and old-established deities and in contravention of law and custom have further claimed precedence of the same deities upon the Earth:

It has seemed good to the Senate and People that an Assembly be convened upon Olympus at or about the time of the winter solstice for the purpose of electing a Commission of Inquiry the Commissioners to be duly-qualified Gods seven in number of whom three to be appointed from the most ancient Senate of Cronus and the remaining four from the twelve Gods of whom Zeus to be one and the said Commissioners shall before taking their seats swear by Styx according to the established form and Hermes shall summon by proclamation all such as claim admission to the Assembly to appear and bring with them sworn witnesses together with documentary proofs of their origin and all such persons shall successively appear before the Commissioners and the Commissioners after examination of their claims shall either declare them to be Gods or dismiss them to their own tombs and family vaults and if the Commissioners subsequently discover in Heaven any person so disqualified from entering such person shall be thrown into Tartarus

and further each God shall follow his own profession and no other and it shall not be lawful either for Athene to heal the sick or for Asclepius to deliver oracles or for Apollo to practise three professions at once but only one either prophecy or music or medicine according as he shall select and instructions shall be issued to 17philosophers forbidding them either to invent meaningless names or to talk nonsense about matters of which they know nothing and if a temple and sacrificial honours have already been accorded to 18any disqualified person his statue shall be thrown down and that of Zeus or Hera or Athene or other God substituted in its place and his city shall provide him with a tomb and set up a pillar in lieu of his altar and against any person refusing to appear before the Commissioners in accordance with the proclamation judgement shall be given by default.

That, gentlemen, is the Bill.

Zeus. And a very equitable one it is, Momus. All in favour 19of this Bill hold up their hands! Or no: our opponents are sure to be in a majority. You may all go away now, and when Hermes makes the proclamation, every one must come, bringing with him complete particulars and proofs, with his father’s and mother’s names, his tribe and clan, and the reason and circumstances of his deification. And any of you who fail to produce your proofs will find it is no use having great temples on the Earth, or passing there for Gods; that will not help you with the Commissioners.

The Secular Masque
Chronos, Chronos, mend thy pace,
An hundred times the rolling sun
Around the radiant belt has run
In his revolving race.
Behold, behold, the goal in sight,
Spread thy fans, and wing thy flight.
Enter CHRONOS, with a scythe in his hand, and a great globe on his back, which he sets down at his entrance
Weary, weary of my weight,
Let me, let me drop my freight,
And leave the world behind.
I could not bear
Another year
The load of human-kind.
Enter MOMUS Laughing
Ha! ha! ha! Ha! ha! ha! well hast thou done,
To lay down thy pack,
And lighten thy back.
The world was a fool, e’er since it begun,
And since neither Janus, nor Chronos, nor I,
Can hinder the crimes,
Or mend the bad times,
‘Tis better to laugh than to cry.
‘Tis better to laugh than to cry
Since Momus comes to laugh below,
Old Time begin the show,
That he may see, in every scene,
What changes in this age have been,
Then Goddess of the silver bow begin.
Horns, or hunting-music within
With horns and with hounds I waken the day,
And hie to my woodland walks away;
I tuck up my robe, and am buskin’d soon,
And tie to my forehead a waxing moon.
I course the fleet stag, unkennel the fox,
And chase the wild goats o’er summits of rocks,
With shouting and hooting we pierce thro’ the sky;
And Echo turns hunter, and doubles the cry.
With shouting and hooting, we pierce through the sky,
And Echo turns hunter, and doubles the cry.
Then our age was in its prime,
Free from rage,
—And free from crime.
A very merry, dancing, drinking,
Laughing, quaffing, and unthinking time.
Then our age was in its prime,
Free from rage, and free from crime,
A very merry, dancing, drinking,
Laughing, quaffing, and unthinking time.
Dance of Diana’s attendants
Inspire the vocal brass, inspire;
The world is past its infant age:
Arms and honour,
Arms and honour,
Set the martial mind on fire,
And kindle manly rage.
Mars has look’d the sky to red;
And peace, the lazy good, is fled.
Plenty, peace, and pleasure fly;
The sprightly green
In woodland-walks, no more is seen;
The sprightly green, has drunk the Tyrian dye.
Plenty, peace, |&|c.
Sound the trumpet, beat the drum,
Through all the world around;
Sound a reveille, sound, sound,
The warrior god is come.
Sound the trumpet, |&|c.
Thy sword within the scabbard keep,
And let mankind agree;
Better the world were fast asleep,
Than kept awake by thee.
The fools are only thinner,
With all our cost and care;
But neither side a winner,
For things are as they were.
The fools are only, |&|c.
Calms appear, when storms are past;
Love will have his hour at last:
Nature is my kindly care;
Mars destroys, and I repair;
Take me, take me, while you may,
Venus comes not ev’ry day.
Take her, take her, |&|c.
The world was then so light,
I scarcely felt the weight;
Joy rul’d the day, and love the night.
But since the Queen of Pleasure left the ground,
I faint, I lag,
And feebly drag
The pond’rous Orb around.
All, all of a piece throughout;

Thy chase had a beast in view;
to Mars
Thy wars brought nothing about;
to Venus
Thy lovers were all untrue.
‘Tis well an old age is out,
And time to begin a new.

The Narcissism of Small Differences. In Group Bias.

“The Fascists, down to the last smalltime demagogue, continuously
emphasize ritualistic ceremonies and hierarchical differentiations. The less hierarchy within
the setup of a highly rationalized and quantified industrial society is warranted, the more
artificial hierarchies with no objective
raison d’être
are built up and rigidly imposed by
Fascists for purely psycho-technical reasons.
Hitler’s famous formula,

Verantwortung nach oben, Autorität nach unten
, (responsibility towards above, authority towards below)

nicely rationalizes this character’s ambivalence.
This is the line pursued by the agitators’ standard »unity trick.« They emphasize their being
different from the outsider but play down such differences within their own group and tend
to level out distinctive qualities among themselves with the exception of the hierarchical
one. »We are all in the same boat;« nobody should be better off; the snob, the intellectual,
the pleasure seeker are always attacked. The undercurrent of malicious egalitarianism, of
the brotherhood of all-comprising humiliation is a component of fascist propaganda and
Fascism itself. It found its symbol in Hitler’s notorious command of the
.orality: language itself, devoid of its rational significance, functions in a magical way and
furthers those archaic regressions which reduce individuals to members of crowds. Since
this very quality of uninhibited but largely associative speech presupposes at least a
temporary lack of ego control, it may well indicate weakness rather than strength. The
fascist agitators’ boasting of strength is indeed frequently accompanied by hints at such
weakness, particularly when begging for monetary contributions – hints which, to be sure,
are skillfully merged with the idea of strength itself”

The Forgotten Nazi History of ‘One-Pot Meals’
Officials believed the stews and soups had the power to unite Germany.
APRIL 12, 2018

This was the Eintopfsonntag campaign—a Nazi push to make German families eat one-pot meals. Eventually, it would endure well into the Second World War and popularize these stews, soups, and pilafs in Germany for generations to come.

More than that, writes Alice Weinreb in Modern Hungers: Food and Power in Twentieth-Century Germany, “Cooking in ‘one pot’ (ein Topf) was supposed to symbolize the Nazi creation of ‘one people’ (ein Volk

To take part in Eintopfsonntag, Germans had to experience deprivation for the good of the collective—a common, unifying Nazi theme. In a 1935 speech, Hitler castigated those who did not take part or give as much as they could to the Wintershilfswerk: “You have never known hunger yourself or you would know what a burden hunger is,” he said. “Whoever does not participate is a characterless parasite of the German people.” Those who greedily refused a day’s abstinence were said to be “stealing” from the collective. As one regional report put it, “Just as faithful Christians unite in the holy sacrament of the Last Supper in service of their lord and master, so too does the National Socialist Germany celebrate this sacrificial meal as a solemn vow to the unshakeable people’s community.”

In the underground press, countercultural cartoons criticized the Eintopf obligation. “Which Eintopf dish is the most widespread in Germany?” asked one. The answer: Gedämpfte Zungen. Zungen means “tongues,” and Gedämpfte means both “steamed” and “silenced.”

The Control of Oil. The Energy/Exchange Cartel. (Who Shot JR?)

Putting the trilateral into Binary divide and rule. Trinary Debate, The Triangulation Pyramid? “Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam”


It would have been a major conceptual error to allow usury to be
charged on agricultural loans denominated in metals, especially if the
interest and principal was to be paid in metal. For one thing, metals are
“barren” – they have no powers of generation. Any interest paid in them
must originate from some other source or process, outside of the bor-
rower’s understanding or control. Money and power would concentrate
in the hands of lenders.

This structural flaw was alleviated by the central authority. Although
the Royal household was the largest lender and charger of interest, it
took decisive action to minimize the harmful effects of usury, by peri-
odically declaring agricultural debt forgiveness. It also set official prices
for valuing various farm commodities, in effect monetizing them.

“In the earliest city cultures every form of exchangeable goods could
be used as money,” Heichelheim reports, estimating that 12 to 20 such
commodities were monetized. He thought that price lists such as
Hammurabi’s price tables (and those of Sumer, and of Mesopotamia)
have been misinterpreted as price controls when they are really official
exchange rates of various commodities when used as money. 13

This meant that borrowers, depending on their harvest to repay
loans, wouldn’t be harmed by seasonal market supply and demand
forces, as the increased supply from their harvest tended to push market
prices lower. Thus the effect of monetizing these commodities was to set
minimum floor prices for them, when used to repay loans.

But the usury error struck in Europe, and by the time the practice of
usury reached Greece and Rome, over a millennia later, repayment and
interest of metallic loans for agriculture were being demanded in metal
or coinage. This practice was not sustainable, and as we shall see, it led
to horrendous societal problems wherever it occurred.

‘The Financial Jigsaw’ puzzle mind-game

I want you to imagine a box in which there are ten jigsaws of one thousand pieces
each, all mixed up and no picture on the box to help you understand what any one
complete jigsaw might look like. Your objective and task is to sort all the individual
pieces so as to eventually knit together complete pictures of all ten jigsaws. How would
you go about it? What would you do first? Perhaps you might make a plan, a
road-map if you will, following a methodology and thus working gradually towards
the objective.
I have been battling with this problem in the real world for over thirty years,
and finally some of the jigsaw’s pieces are beginning to link together, in small sets of
two or three items, offering clues to the overall emerging picture. One piece appears
to represent the tiny island of Cyprus. There is also a special bit, a ‘corner’ piece upon
which is written the word ‘Banks’. There are many other individual pieces of the
jigsaw, displaying random, odd words which we all know, for example: ‘Money’,
‘Debts’, ‘Credit’, ‘Austerity’, ‘Wages’, ‘Jobs’, ‘Gold’, ‘Savings’, ‘Mortgages’,
‘Benefits’, ‘Inflation’, and ‘Markets’ et al.

Life is not a jigsaw puzzle its a recipe.

“When discovering the structure of DNA, Francis Crick famously announced to his drinking companions in a Cambridge tavern that he had discovered the ‘secret of “life”. The director of

his Institute, Max Perutz, was rather more careful than Crick when he

said that DNA was the ‘score of life’.

That is more correct since a musical

score does nothing until it is played. DNA does nothing until activated

to do so.

pp.35 “Dance to the Tune of Life: Biological Relativity 1st Edition, by Denis Noble

The idea of a Musical Score, as opposed to a fixed recipe in Denis Noble’s book, is I think a good conceptual comparison of two approaches to the same set of Data, of course, there are many potentials between the two categories of approach.
Similarly the Jigsaw analogy in Peter Underwoods book presumes a final end state a sort of deterministic outcome. Our starting point in making life a banquet fot for a citizen should be what are our objectives with this meal what should we do with this set of ingredients in the pursuit of What?

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness) is a well-known phrase that is included in the American Declaration of Independence . It is one of the most famous phrases in the English language.

The phrase, like the Declaration of Independence, was written by Thomas Jefferson and strongly influenced by the British philosopher John Locke . Benjamin Franklin supported Jefferson in toning down the protection of property as one of the tasks of the state, in order to place in its place “the pursuit of happiness.”

Hi Peter,
As you know I am not an Austrian of any species, unless, of course, you detect a certain Shumpterian bent in some of my own interpretations of the recipe.

Boule Boules and IABATO. Silenced Tongues cost lives. Time to speak out.

I mention your jigsaw in dispatches, The Usury error is absent from all conventional economic and financialised thinking without solving this error I am afraid all our efforts will amount to naught always assuming we get another go. This time I think the gargoyles fancy their chances of shutting up shop and locking us all into their own wonderful utopia.
Would you like to have a chat on line about the book? similar to the chat I had with John Hearn,
