Periodic Dosage of Xah
Once upon a time there was Diary, and similar were logs, journals, travelog and such forth. In our info age, it is called blogs by inept computing geeks. To keep in sync with humanity of fashionable business and nomenclature novelty, mine is called Periodic Dosage. This periodic, is bent on to inform the informed, and educate the educated, of all things and social things and ethological things.
it appears there are bots for Trump and for Clinton, churning out thousands of tweets per day, pretending as human supporters. It's, bot war.
today, sites such as washington post, log your page up/down keys. They know what site you visit, and how much and when you scroll. twitter does same since about 2013. You can tell when you scoll or page down, and there's unnatural delay.
persons like Kellyanne Conway is just fascinating. She is likable, but she gets her point across, even dislikable ones.
- 1. i think i'll stop political tweets too.
- 2. in one sense, stopping political tweet is selfish, because you did not stand for what you think is right.
- 3. in another sense, stopping political tweet is good, because you are not dumping and pushing of your own opinions onto others.
- 4. there's no simple answer about voicing political opinion, and relation between friends. it's complex, also depends on culture, country, situation.

multiculturalism in America: we respect different skin color and dress, we don't respect different ethics
multiculturalism in America is funny. You are respected for your weird robes, hats, sex, color, as long as your idea of ethics is American.
all american shows, are obsessed over this. Star Trek is the best example. We have, the PRIME DIRECTIVE. A dilemma we cannot escape.

Hillary vs Trump first presidential debate, and the social justice warriors
Hillary supporters, vote for Bernie or Jill!
the moderator is a incompetent limp. The sjw had to pick a black man, is that right?
Trump: we need law and order.
Hillary: we need more sjw. #debate
programing today is mostly sjw's views. if you don't agree with such, often you'll be harassed or persecuted (which is illegal)
the sjw today has become extreme to the degree that if you don't agree with their views, you are racist, misogynist, homophobic.
if u apply for job in San Francisco, and your political views is anti sjw, many will not hire with excuse. this is actually illegal. has happened to me
but i know many of you coders, who are fearful of speaking out agains sjw. Be assured, there are still a lot good people who are not militant sjw
the sjw war is just a social political phase as history. if you can, fight it. or, live outside of usa.
if you chose to fight sjw, which is now dominant and powerful of mostly wealthy white people, you will have to pay, of course. whether worthy is up to you
one of the great consequence of the sjw untruth, is rise of Hillary and Trump. Hillary cuz she's woman. Trump is a backlash.#debates
as a programer and extreme nerd life, most my friends, circle, are programers, professors, american left, sympathetic to sjw causes
i myself have mostly leaned left, since 1990, read every issue of Time mag for few years, cover to cover.
I want to help women, sympathetic to their issues, am a brother to females. yeah, the big brother (most girls want bad guy, not big bro)
but recently, realized the sjw or extreme american left, is going too far. it's rise of nazi. it's the China red guards.
2 months ago, my view of Trump was he's a silver spooned buffoon and lier. He's here cuz he's rich. all my social circle posts tells me that
my social network circles are 99% pro sjw people. programers and professors. help women, black lives matters, GENDER GENDER!
i can name at least 10 sjw inclined in my twitter circle EASILY, but only about 3 american right, usually quite.
of the american conservatives, usually they are strong god believer, and moralist. well, i am anti-god, and anti-moralists
but since a month ago, i started to follow anti sjw people. There are tons on twitter too. Most 4chan like shit, but some serious
the sjw, are typically powerful and wealthy white people. The sjw views, superficially anti-white, but actually solidify their own power
i find it a great comfort, that there are a lot against sjw. As Hillary and sjw likes to call as deplorables
now, philosophically, i think the rise of sjw is, their life is too comfortable. usa is killing hundred thousands, but you can help prevent date rape and blacks!
i cannot fathom, my justice-conscious programer friends support Hillary, who take millions of dollars questionably, lie thru teeth straight and smiling.
i supported Obama, first black president. I observe obama's demeanor, i deem him a good and capable. While G W Bush is a fuckface criminal
Turns out, Obama didn't do nothing.
there's “equal opportunity” and there's “equal outcome”. One might say the formal is capitalismish, latter socialismish.
ok. sam harris, famous for popularizing atheism, is a quarrelsome ego-driven guy. and his writing style is academic fat filled to the brim.

Your Loyalty to Your Company
i cannot fathom the loyalty of most people to companies. My company x is greatest. Next year, switched job. y is greatest.
it's like girlfriends or wife husband. It's currently the greatest and hottest, swear by god. Not by years later.
logically, you could say there's element of lie. But that's not how most people roll. Most people live now, not a saint with cosmo scope.
y'know, there's gondola something indian guy that few years ago was google big shot leading Google Plus. and now, he's not. Then you look back at some videos of his talk while at google, you see how proud this or that of his company. seems funny. (by the way, i just pulled this guy's name out of the hat, as a illustration. I haven't really watched his talks perhaps only once and don't recall if he particularly expressed loyalty to Google. Though, am sure, he has talked a river about how he's proud of Google Plus stuff, because he was leading it and it was meant to be the future of Google.)

no more master of everything, must narrow it down to a pinpoint
busied in past couple days doing my sites, some 8 thousand pages, creating indexs, nav panels... haven't spent time on parser, golang, ocaml
as keen tech watcher, i think we need to keep interest to less and less things as tech progress
but in past years, i see myself unfocused. Too many things to read daily, that basically robbed my time on whatever main thing i want to do.
including things like thousands tech news, any linguistics/writing/literature articles, society/politics/future, psychology, philosophy, american sex war, et al …
as tech explodes, AI and stuff, i think we need to focus and narrow down our interest, DILIGENTLY.
in 18th century, you can still be a man who is a master of sciences, or even everything.
science and tech grew exponentially. Today, you must focus on one very narrow field. It's almost like, outside of that, you are an absolute idiot.

why do i kept using the phrase “Human Animal” instead of “human being”? because, when you use raw language, not cultured or euphemism, truth comes out and grabs you.

Social Justice Warriors and Code of Conduct
law are created to do good. But when it becomes complex and big, as modern society is, it became alien, usually just punishing the weak, controlled by the powerful.
Code Of Conduct is similar.
Without Code Of Conduct, we all have a chance. When conflict arise, you duke it out, as highschool kids brawl. We are talking about contribution of code here. And we should encourage small people to start their own, instead of somehow have a need to be part of big project. Encourage more personal freedom instead of contralize power.
With Code Of Conduct, there's this powerful ideology and org behind it. When conflict arise, and if you happen to be the unfavored, you are likely more hurt by Code Of Conduct.
There are quite a lot we can do to improve the world. There's Scientology, Religious million dollar scams, and uncessary war (many of these are hard to fight). Today, our tech can feed the world…
I know that many of the Code Of Conduct people intent to do good, but seems to me it's more of aggression.
here's 2 threads on reddit. 2 particularly very nasty people. Sam Halliday and Sebastian Wiesner. These 2 are extreme “social justice warriors”. They, if power be, i think are the type of people who will kill, believing they are doing good.
American SJW and Rise of Nazi
Melania Trump, first lady with highest high heels.
law, in big organized society, becomes a blind power that punishes the weak, controlled by powerful. The Code Of Conduct, works in a similar way.
today's American leftist, is of degree, that they will hurt, punish, those who disagree with them. Yes. It has become that.
the keyword is righteousness. they believe they are doing the right thing. I frankly don't see how it's different from the rise of Nazi.
on the other hand, we have Hillary, a lying-thru-teeth pro politician.

i believe in truth. I do not believe in upholding a community, being positive. Because these things, when untruth, does harm in the long run.

there's a possibility, that common moral values of human animals is logically imcompatible with common ideals of peace and harmony

Understanding Power by Noam Chomsky amazon
i've lived my life sans pleasure. Formal, aloof, ascetic, and in perpetual pain ＆ emergency state. Working frantically towards failure.
everytime i hear a success story, big or small, i become EXTREMELY hurt, to the degree of physiological symptoms. This been the case since teen.
“we need fetchingly these internet sounds”
had a dream… and there's a phrase i emphatically wanted to recall, as it holds the key to remember whole dream.
remembered the phrase i did, but now i know not what it means.
while i, am here worry about hunger, somebody elsewhere is worried about the trepidation of fornication.
it's a common problem where key or ring or something fall into the drain. so, drain should be designed to prevent this in a fool proof way.
for past weeks, been watching on tweeter a very rich man travelogging his venture of sharing his wife. ① nice to be rich. ② am miserable.
in our society, there's a sector of people, who encourage positiveness, never criticize. I think these people are actually doing HARM.
criticize, even bitching, is necessary for healthy society. Ali, M L King, malcolm x, bobby fischer, rms, are exemplar negative forces.
some of these are now national heroes, after they are dead. When they are not dead, some are taken as criminals.
what happens to a society that avoids criticism/negativeness? you get a bowl of all positive, smiling, nice people. You get Disney Land.
to be rich, first need the willing part in willing and able. and that mean's more than mubling “yes i want”
i've logically determined 48 is still good for coding. I'm still good, still good.
Sanders is 74. Hillary = 68, trump = 69. at these ages, sometimes you pee on your pants.
it's interesting that leaders of human animals tend to be old. Age acquires power, cuz power came from dealing with other humans.
human animals need to eat everyday, and, the well-to-do demo their pretty plates everyday, like millions of them, and this is perpetual.
1 of the change that, since ~2010, everyone gives a talk, in hundreds of events/confs, and we can watch live. before, only top games can.
recall, the context here is, what all these change-the-world tech ＆ AI actually have done to society?
