>Decide for yourself (be objective in your conclusions).
>Decide for yourself (be true in your own beliefs).
>Decide for yourself (be open to following the facts).

Those who control you.
Those who label you.
Do they represent you?
Or, do they represent themselves (in some form)?
Mental Enslavement.
The Great Awakening (‘Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of ‘group-think’), but, more importantly, aid in the construction of a vehicle (a ‘ship’) that provides the scattered (‘free thinkers’) with a ‘starter’ new social-networking platform which allows for freedom of thought, expression, and patriotism or national pride (the feeling of love, devotion and sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other citizens who share the same sentiment).
When ‘non-dogmatic’ information becomes FREE & TRANSPARENT it becomes a threat to those who attempt to control the narrative and/or the stable.
When you are awake, you stand on the outside of the stable (‘group-think’ collective), and have ‘free thought’.
“Free thought” is a philosophical viewpoint which holds that positions regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or dogma.
When you are awake, you are able to clearly see.
The choice is yours, and yours alone.
Trust and put faith in yourself.
You are not alone and you are not in the minority.
Difficult truths will soon see the light of day.

      I posted that last line of Q’s post IN BOLD on daily thread, EIGHT secs before you posted here

The truth is just that, the truth. as a double edge sword it cuts to ribbons and shreds the lies and the truth stands alone intact ,a sword cannot cut down the truth. in fact the truth is what is laid bare when all the lies are strewn about the field. we stand ready with our swords of truth!

      1. A proposition is true or false independent of what you think about it. (Except for the trivial case where the proposition begins with “Daughn thinks that…” where of course it’s true or false depending on whether you think it or don’t.)

        A lot of post modernist types think that “truth” is somehow socially determined.

        If someone says “his truth” or some variation thereof, they may be using that phrase as shorthand for “his perception of the truth,” and if so, it’s annoying because they could just say “his perception is”. If they really DO intend to imply that truth depends on who it is, then it’s not annoying, it’s “I want to drop kick him into orbit where he can argue with the vacuum whether it’s true that people need air to live.”

        When someone says “my truth” they almost certainly don’t mean to say “my perception of the truth,” they’re simply insisting that they’re right without quite coming out and saying “you’re wrong.”

          1. I have a friend who used to say “perception is reality” and I eventually figured out that what he meant by that is people WILL act on their perceptions, and those actions are real even if the perception is false.

            1. One step further. I like this. Great points.
              If the DNC premise is “Perception = Reality”, then all we have to do is change the perception. Whether we change it with TRUTH or not is immaterial (we would prefer truth, because it’s easier).
              Change “Trump is Orange and Orange Man Bad” to Orange is cool and hip.

        1. One of the really interesting things is the difference between relativism and relativity. Relativity is sometimes claimed as a philosophical precursor of relativism. NO! The exact opposite in some ways, in that relativity claims an absolute across all reference frames, despite OTHER THINGS being dependent upon reference frame – YET STILL RELATED.

    1. That quote is one that stuck out to me too.

      I agree with the quote, with the exception of ‘revelation’, when narrowly defined as ‘revelation by God’, with evidence for any claimed ‘revelation’ that can withstand critical scrutiny — which is necessarily (at least to this point in time) limited to the revelation of the Scriptures, i.e., the Bible.

      For example, Paul, by inspiration of God (cf. 2 Timothy 3:16) plainly states:

      ……………………………….
      “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. [12] For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 1:11-12, KJV)
      ……………………………….

      All scripture is given by inspiration of God. (cf. 2 Timothy 3:16)

      God cannot lie. (cf. Titus 1:2, Hebrews 6:18, Psalms 145:17)

      So at first glance, Q’s comment appears to be a curious contradiction, considering that Q often quotes Scripture and references God.

      On the other hand, the revelation of God certainly does not preclude the application of logic, reason or even empiricism, but rather invites and encourages it.

      And the Scriptures specifically criticize human traditions — at least to the extent that over time, human traditions tend to be adhered to, while the commandments of God often go by the wayside.

      Appeal to Authority is a logical fallacy, at least insofar as the proposed Authority is another human being. If the Authority under consideration is God, and the position in question can be properly established with book, chapter and verse, then what higher Authority can there be, than God?

      What has God ever said, which men have successfully disproved?

      Dogma has to do with men demanding unquestioning acceptance or belief, usually of some tenet or conclusion made by those same men (or their predecessors). Yet the very nature of the Scriptures, and the claims made therein, compel examination, to be questioned, to be scrutinized and tested.

      In the context of Christianity (as opposed to dogmas of politics, or science, etc.), men of various churches may have dogmas, but they usually seem to be a way of avoiding scrutiny.

      By contrast, the Scriptures invite scrutiny — and freedom of thought, which is necessary in order to examine and evaluate them.

      Truth has nothing to hide.

          I have to wonder about men who hate women.

          It makes no sense.

          Especially if they’re married, or ever intend to be.

          Even if one has good cause for negativity toward a particular woman, how can you extrapolate that negativity to ALL women?

          For the most part, women have always been very good to me.

          But then, I happen to like women, too.

          There may just be some reciprocity going on there — which the men who have determined to hate women, are missing… 😁

      Sure, people can peck around the edges of these absolutes, and call them otherwise, and get good stuff. But the bottom line is that absolutes are awesome in reason and science if you pick the right ones and then work like crazy to disprove them to prove them! 😀

      I have much faith in science, and learned to accept faith as a useful tool in my reason, and reason as a useful tool in my faith.

      1. That’s well put. I was thinking more moral precepts, but physical limits are interesting. They sort of mark where math diverges from describing empirical things to abstract speculation. I can see the act of faith in empirical science, and my faith seems completely rational, though I can’t prove it empirically.

Ulcer meds and antacids were a multi billion dollar industry. 20yrs later it is accepted fact and the now not so young dude won a Nobel prize.. climate change , by comparison is not for the clever folks. It’s fuzzy and you get to move the goalposts any time facts diverge from you theory

    Uh – no.
    I’m not putting faith in myself or my own judgment and cognitive ability. I’ve messed up too much going in that mode. That’s about as bad as “following your heart.”

    Revelation has showed me capital letter Truth – Scriptural Eternal Truth. Revelation birthed Assurance that there is Authority, beyond earthly authority, assurance that GOD is Eternally Enthroned in Heaven, assurance that Jesus Christ died for my sin and the sin of the whole world.

    Never, could have gained all that without revelation, repentance, redemption, rebirth and the gift of faith from GOD Above.

    None of this limits my freedom or my belief in logic, reason, empiricism. I have found that honest science, math and statistics – empiricism – always agree with and reflect GOD’s Word and Revelation.

      ISAIAH 1

      1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

      2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth:
      for the Lord hath spoken,
      I have nourished and brought up children,
      and they have rebelled against me.
      3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib:
      but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
      4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity,
      a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters:
      they have forsaken the Lord,
      they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger,
      they are gone away backward.
      5 Why should ye be stricken any more?
      ye will revolt more and more:
      the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
      6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head
      there is no soundness in it;
      but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores:
      they have not been closed,
      neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
      7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire:
      your land, strangers devour it in your presence,
      and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
      8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard,
      as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers,
      as a besieged city.
      9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,
      we should have been as Sodom,
      and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
      10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom;
      give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
      11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord:
      I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts;
      and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
      12 When ye come to appear before me,
      who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
      13 Bring no more vain oblations;
      incense is an abomination unto me;
      the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with;
      it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
      14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth:
      they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
      15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you:
      yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear:
      your hands are full of blood.
      16 Wash you, make you clean;
      put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes;
      cease to do evil; 17 learn to do well;
      seek judgment, relieve the oppressed,
      judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

      18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:
      though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
      though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

      19 If ye be willing and obedient,
      ye shall eat the good of the land:
      20 but if ye refuse and rebel,
      ye shall be devoured with the sword:
      for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
      21 How is the faithful city become an harlot!
      it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it;
      but now murderers.
      22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
      23 thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves:
      every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards:
      they judge not the fatherless,
      neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
      24 Therefore saith the Lord,
      the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel,
      Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
      25 and I will turn my hand upon thee,
      and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
      26 and I will restore thy judges as at the first,
      and thy counsellors as at the beginning:
      afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
      27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment,
      and her converts with righteousness.
      28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together,
      and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.
      29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired,
      and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.
      30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth,
      and as a garden that hath no water.
      31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark,
      and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.

      1. All but one of those is out of a fuzzy subject (poli sci, sociology, etc.) masquerading as a hard science, so I wouldn’t knock “science” for them. The closest one out of those subjects is economics, which has a strong mathematical base, but it’s still an attempt to deal with human actions.

        “Climate change” is the one with the best claim to actually being science, however, it’s a science (climatology) that we really don’t understand yet, and it’s complex enough in any case to need to be modeled on computers. Unfortunately, computer models are only as good as our understanding of the system–which, as I just said, is still woefully incomplete. And it doesn’t help when the people running the models are dishonest, willing to fudge the data (a huge no-no in science) to get the results to fit their preconceived notions of what they should be. (That’s severely anti-scientific; you run an experiment–or make observations–to see what happens, not to disregard it if it doesn’t work the way you expected it–then to explain what did happen.) The third factor is measurement error; putting weather stations in urban heat islands and only there is going to muck up your results, too.

  4. We MUST start teaching our indoctrinated youth to ASK questions.

    WHY is THAT person advocating a certain position.

    WHAT does THAT person have to gain if his/her position comes to fruition.

    WHO is pushing ‘x’. What is their background.

    The current school indoctrination esposes critical thinking, but it is anything but. The internet is the ‘source’ and ‘truth’.

    But the internet can be our tool if only we can teach ‘a dose of skepticism’ along with ASKING questions.

    Al Gore made his fortune espousing solar energy. He said he wanted to save the planet. He only wanted to enrich himself.

    Tom Steyer made a fortune in fossil fuels before he switched to lucrative subsidized renewable energy.

    No one was asking q’s about their get-rich-quick schemes until it was too late.

    Right now, it is CRITICAL that we seek to expose the $$$ behind the new darlings. We cannot afford to have the ‘homegrown quaintness’ of Ocasio & Omar appear to be anthing but what it is – enemies of the state with Trillions at stake.

    Someone (here? Twitter) suggested, when hearing someone talk about climate change, ASK (in a curious non-threatening way), “What should the CO2 measurement be?” “Which scientists do YOU follow, and WHO is funding their research?” etc etc.

    I am spending more time thinking of good questions to ask on various topics – free stuff, gun control, immigration – rather than persuasion talking points. If I can ‘turn’ even a couple family members by transitioning them to ASK themselves, it’ll be worth it.

    1. My suspicion is something that could be described as “the continuum of life and intelligence across time, space, scale, and many other dimensions, where religion and science mess bigly with each other’s authority”.

      The problem is that by reducing any of this to the purely material or purely spiritual leads to problems of acceptance and understanding.

      The purely material takes no responsibility for outcome, and becomes automatically self-destructive – a wheat-chaff sorter of sorts. Some ideas which work in the game are best taken on faith, and may be provably unprovable by reason.

      The purely spiritual ignores what may prove to be historical realities, in an effort to maintain purely supernatural explanations, when the truth is more shocking, that knowledge and awakening make us aware of the REALITY of the spiritual as NATURAL and only supernatural to those who deny its reality.

      Information is the crossroads of the problem – the “active burn area” of increasing understanding.

      This is just a guess, based on certain tells of the Q psy-op, and the utility of certain information in sorting things out.

Over the centuries there have been many religious people who made breakthroughs in science while in search for truth. It is compatible.

          “Where does serendipity come from?

          In the mid-1700s, English author Horace Walpole stumbled upon an interesting tidbit of information while researching a coat of arms. In a letter to his friend Horace Mann he wrote: ‘This discovery indeed is almost of that kind which I call Serendipity, a very expressive word, which as I have nothing better to tell you, I shall endeavor to explain to you: you will understand it better by the derivation than by the definition. I once read a silly fairy tale, called ‘The Three Princes of Serendip’: as their highnesses travelled, they were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of….’ Walpole’s memory of the tale (which, as it turns out, was not quite accurate) gave serendipity the meaning it retains to this day.”

        Oh boy did that one frost me. The VP’s secretary was very pretty, ~35 to 40 and wore her hair loose to the waist. The office hags were always nagging her to get it cut. It was too long. She wasn’t a young girl anymore.. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

        I finally snapped at them. I told them how she wore her hair was up to her and her husband and to quit nagging her. They shut up at least in my hearing.

        I really hate bullying.

        1. There were a lot of factors going into me letting my hair grow to the waist. It was as much a control coping thing at the time, as it was rebellion, and…I do like it to an extent.

          At any rate, this was in the “Locks Of Love” craze days. Outright, one person said I should cut it off and donate it. I didn’t tell her what I thought of her appearance. Why should we discuss mine?

  8. “‘Free thought’ is a philosophical viewpoint which holds that positions regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or dogma.”

    Q is encouraging us to step “away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media” and to think for ourselves. I think he is specifically addressing, among other things, the report in his previous post about AG Barr allowing indictments of the Trump offspring. Q is telling us to stop believing everything we read. There are fear-mongers even in the conservative media (which is why I stopped reading Breitbart during the early months of the Trump administration).

    In a separate category, however, is faith, including religious faith. Some definitions of “faith” are “confidence or trust in a person or thing” and “belief that is not based on proof.” Not everything can be proven to everyone’s satisfaction. And Q also says, “Trust and put faith in yourself.” We are to think for ourselves and do our own research, but in the end, we have to have faith that our own judgment is correct.

    Even belief in Q is somewhat based on faith.

    1. My thought process when dealing with people is a LOT different than when I am dealing with physics, or a buggy piece of software.

      People can be deliberately deceptive, and can do their best to thwart logical analysis; as Wolf pointed out a long time ago, for instance, they can do their best to “spoof” Occam’s Razor by deliberately falsifying information.

      Scientists generally *suck* at detecting fraud by a person who claims to be a psychic; they don’t know how to detect conjuring tricks.

      That’s why I don’t really have “faith” in Q; I think he’s *likely* on the up-and-up but since I’m dealing with people here, there COULD be some trick he’s using to fool us. And of course, you automatically have to take any specific statement with a grain of salt anyway…because sometimes it’s necessary to engage in disinformation. (I understand that, but it renders Q’s factual reliability pretty low. When I say on the up-and-up, I mean “on our side.” I can’t treat him as a prophet though.)

At a certain point I asked who is the enemy—who is running this show on earth (humanly speaking)—who are the puppeteers behind the puppets calling the shots? Within that search the enemy was revealed, their methods of control, and particularly how the high cabal infiltrated the mechanism of America. The CIA (who basically answers to no one, which is why they set up the NSA for a fall through Snowden, because the NSA could see all their shenanigans), was put in place by the power elite to become their “operational arm” across the globe! To enforce their global control and policy. Evil, strictly evil!

  9. About 8 years ago, a bunch of researchers/teachers/curriculum developers in Kentucky came out with a new test for “Depth of Knowledge”. We got a grant for it and our gifted kids were the guinea pigs.
    The premise was a test ranked from Level 1-Level 4, with Level 4 being the highest (or best) “depth” of knowledge.
    Scoring went like this
    Level 1 was pure memorization and the ability to answer true/false statements
    Level 2 was pure memorization and regurgitation, plus answer multiple choice questions successfully.
    Level 3 take facts and figures from today and write a short essay
    Level 4 take facts and figures from today + what was learned months, years prior, and develop a complex essay. In other words, Level 4 Depth of Knowledge indicated students were actually learning, layering their studies from year to year, and were able to think critically and develop a compelling essay.
    Here’s the strange part.
    Only one female made it to Level 3.
    All of the boys were at least Level 3 and over 75% were Level 4.
    The disparity between male and female was so sharp it led the researchers to scrap the test and go back to the drawing board. Similar results from other schools as well.
    The boys, who spent a lot of time at my house, had a simple answer. They were convinced the female teachers were biased in favor of the girls and received better grades and more latitude in grading, homework, essays, projects, which made them weaker students overall. The boys, who had to work harder for good grades, became better thinkers and sharper students.
    My teenagers were not legit scientists, but what if they were right?
    Weird, huh?

      I’ve long been convinced that if you can’t do “story problems,” you don’t really understand the math. Now, I’ll caveat that slightly: If you can’t understand the statement of the problem because, say, a reading disability, then there are other factors in play. But if someone doesn’t know how to figure out how many square tiles 6″ on a side they’ll need to tile a rectangular room that’s 12 feet by 10 1/2 feet, even thogh they understand the question, then: They don’t understand geometry and/or multiplication. (Note: making an arithmetic error doesn’t mean you don’t understand the concepts, though it does still mean you got the wrong answer. Figuring out which is the case is why math teachers want you to show your work.)

        1. Of course there’s always the dreaded trick question. Sometimes the trick is entirely too well buried. I faced a question once about computing a orbit for a space craft in orbit around Mars. There literally wasn’t an answer that worked. Then it turned out that one of the parameters was given in MARTIAN days (about 24 1/2 hours long) not EARTH days. The prof had deliberately put the word “days” in twice (“days days”) to try to call our attention to it without saying “Mars days” in the hope that we’d say “oops, he means Martian days.” I actually did spot the repetition but thought it was a typo! (It’s not uncommon to repeat a word by accident; it’s often very hard to spot, so that was a really bad way to try to call attention to it–most people didn’t even notice.) And even if I had realized it was deliberate (and why would I have?)–I wouldn’t have known what he meant by it. That was a BAD trick question; you have to realize the prof is basically lying to you.

              1. This ended up as a reply to DP, but I’m guessing it’s in response to my story.

                I’ve seen many trick questions, and been bitten by a few. That’s not what made this one not legit.

                A good trick question relies on people being sloppy while reading it. Remember that graphic someone posted of the tires and shocks? The trick–actually two different tricks–are clear once pointed out.

                In this case, even though I caught the “clue” he threw into his phrasing, it was simply meaningless and could be interpreted as a typo–one that most people simply wouldn’t catch. Why should doubling the word “days” cause someone to think, “Maybe he means Martian days?” rather than “Oh, he made a typo?”

                Whereas a multiplication sign (X) will, if people spot it, cause them to think “multiplication” and a double shock versus a single shock should, again if people notice it, cause them to think 2 instead of 1.

                Yeah, I remember the question, but it’s an example of weasely deceit rather than teaching you to pay attention to details.

    2. Interesting. The boys may well have a point, but even when challenged, girls don’t always rise to the occasion of being able to pull from the past, or layer for that matter.

      Layering knowledge and learning to think in that manner is part of high school math. The step by step linear thinking, hopefully in the abstract, is something a lot of girls struggle with. My mother was a math teacher and this is why she graded not for the answer so much as the work written down. In an all girls’ school.

      I had the same experience in an all girls’ school – and when it came to the nuns, they were tougher than the lay teachers who tended to play favorites.

      Personally, I think the brains are wired a bit differently. However, layered thinking among the general population is not all that common, I’m finding.

We didn’t have enough students in our school for a good statistical sample (close but no cigar), but these kids had been together since they were 2yrs old. Same pre-schools, same teachers, similar parents, township….., what amounted to an anomaly among the boys.

                Sometimes the formal logic and reasoning can be impeccable, but still fail because of wrong, or insufficient information.

                My brother was on a rant the other day about how schools teach nothing–there was some fact or other he was complaining most people just didn’t know.

                I pointed out that it may well have been presented–but most people don’t care, don’t retain it–at best long enough for the test, then down the drain it goes. I doubt that any but the most magnificently charismatic energetic teacher can get a student to actually *care* about a subject he wasn’t interested in.

                At best a school can try to teach you some very basic skills, and also how to think well, and then, when they become adults, the students can hopefully go figure something out when it becomes critical to them. But even then, they might be too lazy to not just take what the Boob Tube dishes out to them since it *seems* trustworthy.

          Of course, knowing the past pattern, they’re both wrong and it will be something totally unexpected.

            1. Technically speaking, in chess victory is not obtained by taking out the king.

              Rather, it is obtained when the king must move to avoid capture, but cannot move into any safe spot. Additionally, the king’s pawns and other supporting pieces are equally unable to provide effective cover to prevent any longer the king’s imenant demise.

              I decided to make this post not to be a smart-@ss to Rayzors excellent post, but to expand his analogy to an even better, more descriptive and personally rewarding (to us all) situation for that king.

              I don’t want that king to just be taken out, I want him to ring himself out of options and without anyone willing to run cover. Same for Hillary.

  14. It’ll be the first time I don’t mind watching Hitlary Klinton…at her trial.

    Probably better attended than any of her rallies.

    Unless it’s held in a football stadium, in which case you can change “probably” to “absolutely, by a factor of 50.”

    FTA: “Authorities arrested a 20-year-old woman south of Augusta on Tuesday for allegedly supporting an Islamic State-linked group that has called for killing thousands of people in the New York City area, including U.S. troops.
    Three years ago, Kim Anh Vo — who also goes by “Zozo,” “Miss.Bones” and “Kitty Lee” — allegedly joined the United Cyber Caliphate, an online group that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, the U.S. Justice Department announced in a news release. The organization, according to the federal agency, is “committed to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans.”

    1. This shows software limitations. The next logical step in their software would be for it to identify parts of speech and rule them out in the “initials identification subroutine”. Clearly a “bug” that “AS” was flagged when context says that it’s a normal word.
