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.
megan kelly, high heels, and dancing
megan kelly, trying to dance her ratings up. awkward, indeed. And look at her heels. What's the meaning of high heels? you wonder.
and look at the audience, it's all setup. The expected view is: it's all just spontaneous cheer. In real world, social dancing and club dancing don't mix.
yuppies invents intermittent fasting
the San Francisco tech circles has a new fad: intermittent fasting. Meaning, for example, eat only during 9am to 5pm. Or, no food whatsoever during Saturday and Sunday.
lol. the entirety of animal kingdom, including human animals, have been doing that. Except the fat n rich human animals in USA etc since industrial revolution.
these rich pigs, especially among the programers, life's too good. They were known as yuppies. They are inventitive, like, yoga, tachi, and intermittent fasting.
i practice calorie restriction, roughly for 2 reasons: fantasy and reality. Fantasy part is that, i'll live forever. Scientists says. The other part is, hunger.
Mozilla gives $100k to antifa
incredible. this just blew up.
YouTube Censorship at Work, While CNN, Coke, Pepsi, Pulling Money Over Las Vegas Shooting
twitter announced to expand char limit to 280.
the main issue about char limit is really just “which way can we make more money”
Self-Centered White Human Animals
i noticed, whenever wikileaks tweet something not white or euro (such as about Spain or South America or Africa), it has very little retweet (e.g. few hundred vs few hundred thousand). It shows the self-centered interest of white animals.
this is particularly so for US American, whose interest is pretty much exclusively USA.
and there's natural cause of this. Because, USA, by geography, is pretty much lonely, plus, USA is the most powerful. When you are most powerful, you don't care about others. (other than the fake sympathy which induced today's SJW scums)
while europe, are “little” countries with lots neighbors. It has to care, because what your neighbors do affects you. Europeans tend to care more about the world. (but today it has been heavily fucked up by sjw, i think due to USA hedgemony)
a digital monk's saga of going on a 400 miles trip
a digital monk's saga of going on a 400 miles trip. (643 km)
got invinted to a mathematician friend's home. Had to travel from Mountain View, CA to UC Irvine, CA.
my driver license is expired for many years. Not enough time to renew. So, can't ride plane. Had to find a bus that don't require ID (or expired ID).
never had a smart phone nor a phone. Had to get a phone if i got lost somewhere.
went to Irvine, tasted good living.
On return trip, the bus broke down. Took 4 hours for replacement to come.
stupid smart phone, asks for OS update. If you accept update when wifi is available, your cell is killed, till it's updated. The phone became a brick.
when off bus, no phone, no bus. It's 1:30 am. Wolfs and hyenas lurk in the dark.
lucky me a taxi happened to pass by. So, got home safely.
ideology vs privacy
in 2000, we nerds are concerned about web cookies, tracking gif. These are the issues you see bitching daily on news.
Today, with cloud, smart phone, it's a magnitude worse, and there's basically nothing you can do except not using a smart phone or computer.
part of the cause of this is fanaticsm in open source and FSF. Because when you push things that don't align with reality, you worsen your goal in the long run.
Southern Poverty Law Center = scam
the “Southern Poverty Law Center” is one of the biggest money scam cult now. Am surprised that Apple and Google putting millions into it.

mirror mirror on the wall, who is evil?
Evil, usually appear innocuous. To me, the sjw left looks more Nazi than the Nazi flag totters in USA.
if you want to understand how evil such as Nazi rise, watch this film http://xahmusic.org/music/tomorrow_belongs_to_me.html
Chine Red Guards and the SJW Millenials
the sjw left is actually quite similar to China red guards. Smash/burn traditional things. Communism. murder classicists, such as professors.
It's American Cultural Revolution.
To understand Cultural Revolution, watch this excellent film. Farewell My Concubine 霸王别姬
you see the horror of China from 1940s to 1970s. Rotting from within.

part of my reply to a friend:
yes. Am of the opinion that even the functionality of blocking, should not be there.
mute is reasonable i think.
it's words, it's not harassment.
what's more sinister is that, since say 3 years ago, the sjw left has this massive idea of “bullying” or “harrassment”, “microagression”, truly neurotic, and wanted authority to take steps.
if someone says fuck you, you can say fuck you right back.
but now, instead of individual freedom, and letting people fight out ideas, we have massive authoritarian movement, that massively ban, block, certain people or idea. Or, those “report this” feature on every website now. That's the problem begin.
this blockbot thing, isn't the real issue. Sure, some hacker creates it, some people use it, am for it. But the problem is, today such tools are part of politics, massively used, for political fight. Mastodon ban list is a good example.
Of recent googlememo incident, we also see, the sjw left googlers has blacklists, of other googlers they don't want to work with. And this is within the Google Do No Evil company, among googlers against each other. Don't you see that's sinister?
the outcome of this, is just more hatred, creating more political closed-door factions, mutually intolerant, and now we escalate into violence.
you know Lew, in the 1990s, 2000s, we don't have nothing like this. We are, liberals, libertarian, and pro open source, pro freedom, pro free speech. But today, those all considered all bad. You are an oldbie, don't you see this?
USA, Rotting from Within
high respect to this Tim Pool guy.
Personally, I think the problem arose, from political correctness since 1990s. It set the foundation of collapse today.
and from another perspective, perhaps it's the natural cycle of the collapse from affluence, as Camille Paglia has said.
when you are affluent, your life is too good, you lost touch with reality. In the case of sjw left, you start to feel guilt, and a need to do good to redeem your cosmo wantings. They start to drill on the minority, crippled, women, sex, and race.
Things are still pretty good in early 2010s. We even had a black president for the 1st time, for 2 terms. (And i supported Obama).
But all of a sudden, since Hillary the scum ran election playing on women card and race card, things got really bad. You got this army of militant and intolerant sjw leftists, and everything is about racism sexism. And in a very twisted way, the foundation of USA the Free Speech, is somehow a bad idea, and somehow Islam is great and Christian is bad. And now they openly embrace communism and racism against white people. (Asian is not spared, by the way) They openly despise founding fathers of USA, taking down statues, taking down statue or portraits of founders of universities, promote not just gay, attack those traditional women and men, spreading hate and inciting race issues.
In 1990s and 2000s, the bleedingheart liberals are mostly the well-to-do white men. White collar class, university professors, for example. It's hard to find minority or black person that take their stance.
but today, you have blacklivematters stuff, of black people, actively engaging violence.
The liberal today, is no longer liberal. Everything else, including libertarians, who disagree with sjw left ideology, is now labeled “alt right” or neonazi, by mainstream media.
it's a hard problem to solve. Because there are quite a lot of the sjw left. Not big percentage of the usa population, but in absolute numbers, a lot. Half or most of university college students, the millenials.
and it's quite sinister. These people, deeply believe they are morally superior. If you disagree on their ideology, they deem it proper that you be taken down.
There are lots of them the programing field too. If you dare to say you disagree with the sjw left opinions, you are likely to lose friends you known. But worse, you may be harrassed or become the target of violence.
terror is going on right now. If u want to see the right side, here #UniteTheRight , left side here #charlottesville

what's your politics?
hey my friend, am not sure what's your politics, so am going to be careful. I'll state my stance in few tweets. below. Thanks.
1 i support women, gay. Now, the “lgbt” the phrase is something else, it's been long it became a political thing, it's not really about women etc.
2 i don't support lgbt or sjw leftist antifa etc beating people. nor do i support people beating middle east people. beating is no good.
3 today, according to mainstream media, anything that's not the sjw left is “alt right” or “far right”.
4 am a classic liberal, or, libertarian. I support Bernie Sanders, or Jill Stein, for example. and by the way, party label isn't important.
5 ok. that's it. What is your political view? i don't quite understand. Were you displeased at my tweets?
here's 3 scientists i know related to sex. follow them for the real thing.
google firing Damore poll 2017-08-10. Not sure how trust worthy is the poll, but here it is. from Business Insider
so quickly, usa is becoming a totalitarian/communism state
1 so quickly, usa is becoming a totalitarian/communism state.
2 the Big Brother 1984 state, I'd thought as we watch it it won't happen. Turns out, it stem from within, the “help minority” people the sjw.
3 this is similar to how Nazi rose, or the Maoist China, it is, by the people. At first, it seems doing good, then it got big, and you can't exit.
4 the mainstream media, are all heavily corrupt, controlled by concentrated power and ideology, spreading propaganda.
1 the sjw leftist, is today the all powerful. They are the power, the mainstream. That's one way know which side you should be.
2 if you speak out, you'll be hated, and by lots of your friends too. In a sense, you became the rebel, the minority.
3 one wonder about history, how atrocities arise, million deaths, and often, supported by massive number of people, that's the majority.
4 on twitter, many programers, still don't know many recent incidents. They don't c ur posts, cuz twitter etc, controls info. fakenews daily.
5 ur friends say, hey you are reasonable guy, why are you now this hateful? and basically it became impossible to explain.
6 this happens in rise of Nazi, in America genocide of indians, in China cultural revolution, etc. There are few good guys standing up, but hopeless.
7 when 99% of people say gay is crime, and you are the 1% defending gay, hope is slim, and you'll be beatean up.
8 moral/ethical concept changes over time, over cultures. At 1 time in 1 region, there's 1 mainstream thought. disagree = beaten up.
9 it's not all hopeless. Over the past 6 months, i've followed and learned A LOT! from people on twitter against sjw. Opened my eyes.
Google's ideological echo chamber
“Google's ideological echo chamber” nice video summary, first 5 minutes.
The full doc:
someone actually has the courage to say it, at Google. To say it these days, risks losing job, get beaten, doxxed, etc.
you can do it only if you have strong base. Also, as of now, the sjw problem is getting more recognized as a problem.
mainstream corps, are pro-left, only cuz sjw left ideology is selling point. But as more people woke, the corps will follow where money is.
likewise, many sjw are so to climb social ladder. But if mainstream ideology changes, they'll change tune or disappear.
the root of the problem isn't sjw, but always the current in power. That was nazi in Germany, conservatives + god in usa, and today sjw left.
majority of people, are conformists. They follow whatever thought currently is in fashion about good/evil. And they try to attack evil.
most Germany people, in Nazi era, see jew or communists as evil. And just 20 years ago, gay, made average people angry. They try to do vigilante justice. Today, if you don't buy gay marriage etc, u r seen as nazi.
on twitter, there's a leftist scum Dan Arel. look at his tweets, full of blatant lies, hate, and inciting violence.
