The internet has no actionable information: it’s mostly useless?

Sometimes I find a use for the internet. I can find a recipe for meatloaf, for example, although for certain, I will alter it. Sometimes I find a definition for a legal term, a science term, a word from anthropology or some other specialty jargon. I can find dates for historical events. I can find out about actors in the films I have enjoyed, even some of their quotes to remind me that the roles are fake but the people acting in DVD’s are real. I can find someone’s opinion about something as long as the scope of opinion is small. But there aren’t useful items that will help in a job search unless I sign up for a service in exchange for leaving my data behind. Even when I can verify a job opportunity on-line without leaving behind information, I’ve never had success with a job search using the internet. And many job postings on job sites are outdated. I read an article at Forbes not that long ago that said the internet doesn’t help much with job placement.

There’s nothing to help me to avoid economic disaster if our economic elephant has started to collapse under the weight of economic mismanagement. That would be a system-wide collapse and there’s not a way for an individual to stop the collapse of a complex system like the economy. There’s also nothing to help me to get around an algorithm that would disqualify me for a job I want. There’s not any help for the high cost of cars, tuition, hospital care or houses. Is this partly because of the “everything on the internet is free access” model? Maybe. It’s harder for creative people to get paid when so much is offered without charging for it.

Lately, I can find alternative media information but it often amounts to commentary regarding disasters unfolding everywhere around us. There isn’t really a way listed on the internet that tells us how to get around the various problems that beset Americans these days. Many dooms are foretold. There are stories about how the stock market will soon collapse. There are stories about computers invading people’s bodies achieved by inserting or applying a monitoring device that will destroy the privacy we enjoy inside our skin and organs. There are stories about global conspiracies to overthrow nation states while banks take over the world. None of this information helps me to conceive of a better strategy for my day to day. So after all that useless time on the internet I’ve turned to history: Roman history. I’ve been reading about Rome in the time of Julius Caesar and Jesus Christ. That was a time of shock and upheaval like today is. Like a good soldier, I’m marching through two sources of information:

The Story of Civilization: 3, Caesar and Christ: A History of Roman Civilization and of Christianity from their beginnings to A.D. 325 by Will Durant, MJF Books, NY, copyright 1944.

The Historical Jesus: The Life of a Mediterranean Jewish Peasant, the first comprehensive determination of who Jesus was, what he did, what he said, by John Dominic Crossan, Harper San Francisco, 1992.

From Durant, I’m learning that in the throes of Republican collapse into Empire, many people fought to achieve a better political solution by killing their political enemies. Battles were waged. They failed to change the ongoing course that was already underway. No matter how determined or how willing to gamble or to organize the like-minded, once Rome had abandoned its Republican traditions and become seduced by the luxuries that came about from Roman invasions and conquests, there just wasn’t any going back to the more sensible and less luxurious life of the past. Rome harmed many surrounding communities and individuals. Rome had changed from an agrarian society at peace to one at war. As it changed, it became entrenched in corruptions that led to further collapse and further change. It kind of makes me wonder if politics might be more irreversible than I had imagined. Going forward may be the only way, never backward. To change for the better, you have to lure people in politics back toward better solutions. That is hard to do once the politically inclined have become entrenched in the advantages that they are already enjoying. Having already gamed the system to suit their own appetites in Rome there was no reason for them to go back.

From Crossan, I’m learning about Roman ways of thinking. Yesterday, I learned about the patron system, Cynics and Stoics, the life habits and expectations of peasants, the class system. Today, I read about how simple people in small communities usually respond when they believe themselves to be surrounded by evils when they believe that their civilization isn’t going to save them. Some want to avoid evil by changing people’s habits from bad ones to better ones. Some want instead to learn something new and transformative that will provide new momentum to live better. Some wish for a magical or spiritual insight that will be different for each person but transformative for everyone. Some want to retreat from the world. Some want to “reconstruct” the world and transform it that way by changing what it is. Some want God to transform the world and others want everyone to transform it together. I guess at some point people come to the idea that when the world isn’t working the way that they want it to, then it’s up to them with God’s help to change it into a world that works better for everyone. With or without help from the internet.

With so much information in disagreement with other information on the internet, it has become a big waste of time to use the internet as an instrument of discovery. I can glean something but there’s no quick way to sift it all. Nevertheless, I should admit that it does help sometimes to get access to other points of view than the curated ones in mainstream media. The internet won’t help me to find work or a solution to economic and political disruption on its way to destruction. But it can offer insights. Maybe some of them help me to avoid doing the wrong thing even if those insights don’t help me to know what to do that will help to improve a scary future.

ADDENDUM: I spent this morning at a video presentation at where Dr. Ryan Cole and Dr. Robert Malone spoke about what they understand with all their training and expertise with regard to covid and experimental gene covid vaccinations/injections. I appreciate their personal commitment to bringing forward information that the public needs which hasn’t been provided by the CDC. The CDC has been recently characterized by the New York Times as a politically motivated government agency. The CDC has declared that they are withholding information from both health professionals and from the public with regard to adverse events subsequent to covid vaccinations. They do this because information about harms would interfere with their political goal of universal experimental gene therapy through the covid vaccines. Those experimental gene therapies have caused the death and suffering of many people. Dr. Cole and Dr. Malone’s bravery is inspiring. Their information is useful. Just as important, their commitment shows that not everyone in America is willing to keep silent in the face of political opposition. Not everyone has gone along with the covid scam. Economism is the belief that people are motivated solely by economic considerations. Dr. Cole and Dr. Malone show that isn’t true. Remember people in healthcare that have been ostracized for speaking out against the covid scam and for refusing to be part of an experimental gene therapy mandate. We should restore their jobs to them. Ethics in healthcare matters.

Sympathy for the Devil?

Earlier this week, I saw a video that proposed a People’s Court approach to global covid politics. The people in the video want to present evidence they say that they have in abundance to be examined in the People’s Court to prove that malice, foresight and intention is behind the more than 23 thousand dead and over a million injured from mrna vaccines innoculated all around the world, not to mention the economic losses suffered by so many. They also want to recognize that there’s evidence showing that covid-19 was laboratory made and not an accident of nature at all. The People’s Court Proceeding ( opening statements claimed a global conspiracy of a criminal nature suitable for prosecution. The idea behind this publicity oriented proceeding is to examine evidence and charge people who have harmed others with crimes. It appears to be a mock trial that isn’t really bringing charges in a real court of law.

I am interested to see if anything can come of this approach. One interesting thing to ponder at least is the possibility that recalcitrant politicians who keep extending the state of emergency well after there’s no reason for a state of emergency might be held responsible for committing crimes that have harmed millions. Then if they are convicted of premeditated conspiracy connected crimes, perhaps they can be removed from office. Their stubbornness and their willingness to hurt others might strip them of the very authority that they have been misusing while they insist that they should have even more of it. We can surely say “no” to criminals even when we have found it so difficult to hold our politicians accountable. Can they out-chaos themselves out of felony charges recognized globally? I wonder if anything can come of this approach.

Do you continue to believe that politicians prolonging the covid emergency are just doing their best to help others? According to Jaron Lanier, people consuming online information do so at the mercy of algorithms that actually feed different people different kinds of information (see his book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now). The differing information people encounter causes higher levels of disagreements between people who have learned from different information sources. A lot of information about masks being ineffective to prevent transmission of respiratory virus has been published; have you seen it? Reports of mask ineffectiveness have not dissuaded politicians and bureaucrats who continue to demand in some places that everyone must wear them and especially that children must. Vaccine harms continue to pile up in data being collected but many politicians have continued despite this evidence to voice their support for these harmful shots that don’t seem to offer any long lasting protections and that do seem to cause serious long-term and short-term harms instead including death. Have you looked at the VAERS data? If you consented to getting a covid experimental shot, are you too afraid now to learn what the consequences have been for those harmed by it? If you still have confidence despite evidence that shows your confidence is misplaced, maybe you should ponder what your confidence is based on. Did you just go along to get along? How far and for how long will you go along with the covid scare? What if what you’ve really got is just sympathy for the Devil?

Obstacles to employment confound good intentions.

Why are so many people not being hired by companies that are seeking workers but seeing a shortage?

One reason is mask mandates and requiring people to get an experimental injection. Many workers don’t want to do either of these things. Potential workers can’t understand what covid has to do with working because the covid illness was less deadly than a typical flu. Lots of hype surrounded covid and lots of demands. Boiled down to essentials, however, we have a PCR test that produced a lot of false positives that look scary but paired with a normal deathrate in 2020 we can see that covid isn’t as bad as the press has made it appear. Increasingly, health problems and deaths are associated with the experimental injection. There are more than ample reasons for would-be employees and employers to say no to all covid demands. But politics associated with mandates make negotiating in the context of covid harder than it should be.

Another reason why workers may not be signing up for jobs is the crazy logic of lean dynamics in the workplace. When every move is analyzed and specified to the worker, it can be overbearing and no-fun. Work can be enjoyable but working with unreasonable specificities can undermine a job especially when it is already a difficult set of tasks that need talent and determination to do. Lean strategists are happy to take credit for improving efficiencies but they run away when you show them that fewer and fewer workers want to do the lean-ever-leaner strategy. Lean strategies and computer monitoring of productivity with constant pressure to be more productive creates an unpleasant workplace environment. Years after lean strategies were introduced, there are fewer STEM jobs that pay well and fewer qualified people who want to do them. And that’s in an economy that’s supposed to rely heavily on technology!

As well as lean dynamics, there’s the obstacle course of unknown algorithms that represent mysterious requirements for any job that uses them. I have heard that potential job seekers should research key words in order to trigger algorithms. I can’t help thinking that the employer instead of using an algorithm could just communicate better about what will make an employee more likely to succeed. Potential employers aren’t required to show what algorithms do and when they use a screening algorithm, they miss out on an opportunity to communicate constructively with a potential employee. I have also read ads that are overly specific descriptions of what is required in a job, sometimes tailor-made as a comment against the person who last held the position. For example in a recent ad I read: “employees aren’t allowed to complain to customers about working conditions.” I have seen the requirement for a technical writer to negotiate with everyone on staff (all strangers for the applicant) who might need to utilize a writer’s abilities, to ensure that there isn’t any in-fighting over the use of the technical writer’s time. As though a technical writer could keep people on staff from fighting each other and still find time to write. I’ve seen the requirement that an applicant should not apply if they would be injured by workplace ergonomics. Amazing and sort of unbelievable. Perhaps they were simply to avoid making a complaint about an ergonomic problem.

Jobs have something to do with making money. Making money is important in a market economy and businesses working in a market economy use profits and losses to determine what to make more of and what to stop producing when something isn’t profitable. People work because they like to make money so that they can exchange their earnings for valued goods and services. In a financialized economy underwritten with Federal Reserve dollars, the market mostly disappears. Production is replaced with bets on the stock market. With the Federal Reserve ready to save reckless investments, there’s no penalty for malinvestments.

For more than ten years, the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates near zero in the context of relatively high inflation which makes no sense since capital use always costs someone something. Instead of paying savers for the use of their capital to make loans, savers who had money couldn’t make interest on their savings which has hurt people who want to eventually retire. Meanwhile by undergirding risk in the stock market with the Greenspan Put, some people with large loans bet big in derivatives and made huge amounts of money. But almost none of that money produced wealth in the real world outside of capital growth. Nor did it produce jobs. Malinvestments multiplied and wasted capital. Now the economy looks drunk on capital and with nothing to show for it. Workers in today’s economy can’t get jobs that make sense over the long term. With enormous costs in real estate, in education, in healthcare, in automobiles, in energy and instability in the job market they can’t go to work and make it pay to service their debt or save anything for retirement. The stock market is overvalued and well overdue for a correction so investment in a 401k is unlikely to yield anything. Workers can’t plan for the future and if their job doesn’t make sense for the future, it also doesn’t really make sense for the present. Because everyone gets old someday and just getting by isn’t enough for what real life demands of us.

Printing more money and creating an enormous amount of inflation looks on the surface like it would force people to get-a-job-any-job to pay for all the costly-ever-costlier stuff. But it doesn’t make sense to work more when you can’t get ahead no matter how much you work. Especially in a demanding job with no prospects for making enough in the future to pay off past debt or save for the future. No one looks at homelessness today as anything but a perennial problem, but homelessness reflects the externalization of consequences for risks by capital in a destroyed market that has no sensibility. It has harmed millions of people.

So workers see obstacles left right and center. So do would-be employers. The most useful thing to do to help workers get jobs at this point is to stop bothering them with hiring algorithms, lean strategies, covid requirements, zero interest rates, currency overprinting and an undergirded stock market. Just stop. None of these improvements has helped our economy. If you want to compensate people who might be willing and able to work, if you want to encourage them to start working, stop taxing their incomes. Maybe they will start a small business and that will help rebuild our woebegone working world. If you want to support employment, go back to rewarding people for working. Stop taxing and regulating work so much that no one can get around the obstacles.

“Letter from Birmingham Jail” supports resistance to unjust laws.

Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963 wrote to express his conviction that peaceful demonstration against racial segregation was a moral act. Many of the ideas that he expressed in that essay can help us to see resistance to covid tyrannies as a just act. I am surprised to hear that Canadian authorities want to punish Canadian truckers for demonstrating against covid mandates. If you will take the time to read this essay, you may find it easier than before to support Canadian truckers in their stand against forced m-rna shots, which have already killed as of January 28th more than 23,149 people.

Here are a few quotes from the “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” 1963, by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

“There are just laws and there are unjust laws. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral obligation to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with Saint Augustine that “An unjust law is no law at all.” “

“An unjust law is a code inflicted upon a minority which that minority had no part in enacting or creating because they did not have an unhampered right to vote.”

“There are some instances when a law is just on its face but unjust in its application.”

“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

“…understand why he must have sit-ins and freedom rides. If his repressed emotions do not come out in these nonviolent ways, they will come out in ominous expressions of violence. This is not a threat; it is a fact of history.”

Please read this essay. It is well worth the time and it puts today’s problems in a clearer light.

What’s going on…

This week was amazing. On I saw video about Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s sponsorship of the Forum of Young Global Leaders. According to Schwab, these young people have been groomed to fit in with globalist goals and now they reside in key positions in governments around the world. According to Schwab, they all support “the great reset.” I looked at their pictures and thought what handsome and successful people! And yet can it be true that they all support subverting constitutional governments where they serve in nation states around the world in order to push forward a globalist agenda? I’ve been wondering about the coordinated covid lockdowns. If these Forum of Young Global Leaders support “the great reset” are they the people we can hold responsible in part for damage to the world’s economies and perhaps for deaths associated with a lab grown virus and m-rna shot side effects and deaths? I would have to begin by asking them. Would they be proud of their association with “the great reset,” or would they say instead that rumors of their support for it have been exagerrated? Recently, when I imagined that truth would come to dinner, I said that eventually we would know the who-what-where-when-why-how of current events. I was amazed to find a source claiming that the “who” can be found among the Forum of Young Global Leaders. I wonder if that’s true.

On, I heard about a doctor-organized protest at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington at the end of January. The number of attendees who weren’t doctors have been said in various sources to range from 25,000 to 50,000 people. A lot of people went to hear the doctors speak. Doctors were especially strong in their opposition to using an m-rna shot on kids. They also were concerned about side effects not just to people particularly sensitive immediately to the rna shot but also over a longer period. In many sources now, I hear about side effects including fulmonating cancers, cardiovascular system damage and neurological damage from the mrna transcript as well as damage due to the micelle delivery system of those shots and also their preservatives. It appears to be more evident over time that the mrna shot technology was never a successful one because it has no benefit and many harms. As I continue to hope that people who trusted the medical system and took the shot will eventually recover because the shot’s encoded genetic changes may diminish over time (if no booster shots) and not be permanent, I keep hearing that death from all causes is increasing. It seems likely that the covid vaccines are bad and that they should be stopped. People who are experiencing harms should be listened to with compassion at the very least. The doctors who spoke at the rally said that the covid emergency should now be over and that the emergency powers assumed by governments around the world no longer have a basis to continue.

In Canada, there’s a giant trucker protest that is a miles long convoy. Truckers assembled because of the requirement that all truckers get the covid mrna experimental shot. All around the world, people are protesting a continued state of emergency. In our hearts we know that many have suffered unnecessarily because the virus shouldn’t have been grown in a lab in the first place. Yet the many experimental laboratories studying weaponization of virus continue to operate. They should be closed down. Gain of function research should stop everywhere.

On the site, I read that a number of private big tech partnerships in cooperation with our federal and state governments have been working on developing a “U.S. Vaccine Passport System.” Multiple government agencies have been involved despite reassurances from both the Biden Administration and the CDC that there is no such effort underway at this time. The article I read is written by Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D., “U.S. Developing Vaccine Passport System Using Complex Web of Big Tech Partnerships”, from January 27, 2022. According to him the real goal all along is to control all people in every way while ignoring natural rights to privacy, freedom of movement, freedom of association and other freedoms, while establishing a social credit system.

These sources show that people are in motion. They aren’t complacent and doing nothing. They are looking over at the Forum of Young Global Leaders, and they are looking at the Biden Administration and many state administrations and they are looking at other governments around the world and they are seeking answers to questions about recent events and policies that directly have affected their welfare. We are moving from not knowing to knowing more and more. Who is responsible? What and how has it happened in the way that it is happening? What actions should be taken now to rectify harms being done to so many? How can we prevent similar malfeasance in the future? How can we recover and do better in the future? Marvin Gaye’s song was written during another time of upheaval. In “What’s Going On,” he called for more understanding. I hope we are getting to that greater understanding.

ADDENDUM: According to, an article of the title listed in the address, at The Burning Platform, said that 16 people connected with the covid restriction rollout and mrna vaccines have been named in a legal filing to defend people in the UK who have been or will be harmed. A 46 page legal filing made to the International Criminal Court on Dec 6, 2021 accused “the dirty 16,” of crimes against humanity and war crimes. The filing claims that mrna vaccines are a strategy to reduce global populations by causing early deaths in people who have received the mrna shots. One of the authors is Dr. Michael Yeadon who was once the VP of Pfizer. He has been speaking against mass m-rna vaccination for some time. Of course the ICC doesn’t have a jail or police to arrest the 16 accused and relies upon nation states to do an arrest. That means that the filing is somewhat symbolic rather than an accusation that will lead to a certain court appearance. Nevertheless, it is concerning that the Nuremburg Code and the Rome Statute are cited in the complaint and that if these 16 people are found guilty of crimes against humanity they will be among the world’s most serious criminals in history.
