Gender and racial discrimination, surveillance, exploitation and so forth are only effects. The real problem is – that it is possible to suppress the people by false Science or false descriptions of the world – that supports Might Is Right. Or like this. We are not genuine citizens.

Intro

I will soon publish the first chapters of Section Two, Promo, of my book.

I have had reflections from many perspectives of what is the very best thing to say before.

Because this section can be a burden if you do not follow what I try to say and especially for them that has not read the first section.

So, my answer is: Listen, read and reflect on Steve Jobs commencement speech from 2005.


About Jobs' Speech

In a way are Jobs' messages not just directed to the graduates that day in 2005; as his words can be understood as a prelude to our new culture.

For sure this is not an especially original conclusion.

Jobs' words are essential as he is recognised as successful in today’s Western culture; a culture he, more or less, openly disliked.

The undeniable and brutal fact is that Jobs rejected the Academic perspective to be able to establish his own path.

It must be observed that Jobs had no clear understanding of Dynamic relations, for example, he says.
...
Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
...
These relations are simply not true as, for example, to be able to write depends on the Dynamic capacity to know in advance HOW TO MAKE the connections.

That Dynamic relations are not acknowledged to be real, concrete or systematic depends only on the Static ideals of the Academic cult.

Accordingly Jobs was forced, like all other Western victims, to replace the Hidden Dynamic relations with Spirituality.

Observe I have nothing against Spirituality; but the confusion that makes it impossible to grasp simple Dynamic relations as concrete.


Jobs Was a Flip-Flopper

Here is short and amusing video where Tim Cook gives ample proof of that Jobs had a somewhat concrete understanding of Dynamic relations.



Cook says.
… he was the best person in the world about doing this. He would flip on something so fast that you would forget that he was the person that was taking the 180 degree polar position on it the day before. … It was an art. You could never know that he thought the opposite. … I saw it daily. I saw it daily. This is a gift. This is a gift, because things do change, and it takes courage to change and courage to say, ‘I am now wrong. Maybe I was right before. But maybe not. Maybe I was never right”. It takes courage to do that and I think he had that.


The Hidden Static Demands

The correct judgement, according to the current Western culture, of Steve Jobs without the slimy Propaganda must be like this.

Jobs was a sloppy daydreamer as he did not care about Logic and always changed his mind.

He was confined to a fantasy world, that consisted of un-real things; things that don't yet exist.

Therefore he could not handle to study or a real job where he had to obey correct Static facts and superiors.

Such bastards like Jobs must accordingly be taken out by a responsible Authorities before they create an unruly disorder.

Thankfully are most of these un-humans suppressed by teachers in the schools and driven to be outcasts by responsible citizens.

But we must be better. That Jobs created several businesses are sad evidences of moral decline.

They who go against the Static order of the Nature and believe that they are creators – like gods – must be eliminated in order to save the Academic cult and the Western system of total suppression and exploitation of every citizen.

Everyone must feel the hopelessness of to exist in their bones!

But, Arcade Fire says it much better from the other side of the compact terror.


Arcade Fire – Creature Comfort



Note: Lyrics in the video

Here follows some of the lyrics from the song Creature Comfort (2017) by Arcade Fire on the album Everything Now from the same year.
... 
... God, make me famous
If you can't just make it painless
Just make it painless
It goes on and on, I don't know what I want

Born in a diamond mine
It's all around you but you can't see it
...
The white lie of American prosperity
We wanna dance but we can't feel the beat
...

...

On Väggen försvinner/The Wall Disappears are there lots of other examples of how Art is used to express hidden Dynamic realtions

This 13 minutes video Exposes the Trick of Platonism and How to Fool the People by Propaganda




One of the primary desired effects of Platonism, that rules the current Western culture, is to be able to fool the People by propaganda.

Or like this. Platonism is all about to eliminate concrete understanding so the People are forced to Accept and Obey.

This means that they who produce the most effective propaganda also owns the victims.

So, the recent exposure of harvesting and use of Facebook profiles in order to construct and spread propaganda exposes also the rule of Platonism.

Just listen to Christopher Wylie's story.

Empty, Dull, Thud – The Academic Art of Dehumanisation – The Terror of Platonism is (Almost) Exposed by the Rosenhan Experiment




Merriam-Webster: "in remission: in a stage during which symptoms are much less severe"

It is helpful to know that remission means literally "forgiveness (of sins)".

The Rosenhan experiment was conducted between 1969 and 1972 by David Rosenhan (1929–2012) that published his results 1973.

The experiment was about to investigate what happens if you at first simulate to be "strange" in front of psychiatrists and then stop to simulate.

One of the results was that is was impossible to get rid of a diagnosis of “insanity”.

Rosenhan's basic question is systematic and can be said to be: What is insanity?

Or according to the first sentence in  Rosenhan's Essay Being Sane in Insane Places (1973).
If sanity and insanity exist, how shall we know them? …
Regrettably did he not ask this question a strict systematic manner as he was a part of the Academic tradition where fundamental questions cannot be asked, or answered, in a strict systematic or concrete manner (as Dynamic relations must be mystical).

And of course Rosenhan's basic question remains unanswered and the idea of "insanity" is still one of the core ideas of the Academic cult that continues to control your life in every aspect.

Here is a recent example.

This secret experiment tricked psychiatrists into diagnosing sane people as having schizophrenia, Nathaniel Morris, The Washington Post, 1 January 2018. Morris writes.
... 
Nearly half a century after its publication, the Rosenhan experiment has left a lasting impression on psychiatry. 
...
So, it is perhaps time to put the question, What is Insanity?, in a strict systematic manner.

Because then will this concrete question be used to dissolve the Academic cult as well as the current Western culture of total terror; as the answer has of course nothing to do with real Science or to help the individual citizen.

I hope you are ready.

And I do recommend Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason (1961) by Michel Foucault (1926–1984).
