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.

Social Justice Warriors, Millennials, and Jargons
been doing a lot thinking since election, about the rise of SJW and “millennials”. I think, those postmodernism stuff of 1990s has a lot to do with it, and Politically Correct leftist parents of 1980s.
the phenomenon are sweeping, in a very short time. Particularly in the past 3 years. Like all cults, they have jargons.
cis gender, lgbt, shaming, bully, microaggression, safe space, triggering, intersectional, mansplaining, gaslighting.
The term “millennial” itself came to the limelight only recently, in 2016. All of a sudden, all news media are using that term.
when i first heard of the term millennial on twitter, few months ago, i thought, that's silly, a fashionable online locution. Then, you see the term almost every week.
then, later on, i realize the term is quite meaningful, and on the spot. It is, indeed, the millennial generation (those born around between early 1980s to mid-1990s ) that's mostly associated with the SJW stuff. This makes sense, because they are the children of the political correctness that reached its heyday in 1990s.
the jargon SJW (social justice warrior) itself, is new, becoming very popular since about 2010. The term is very apt, as it describes people who are extremely aggressive, on social networks, harassing other people who do not agree with their views.
the political correctness of 1990s, are about using he/she, and instead of “disabled person” calling “differently enabled”. I thought it kinda went away in 2000s, but turns out, became far more worse with today's SJWs.
i think, it reached the highest point during election, where, Hillary just rides it. Anyone who disagree with the sjw point of view is blatantly labeled Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Xenophobic, Islamophobic, as Hillary openly accused of Trump voters. While Trump, is exactly the backslash of the SJW.
because Trump won, now i see increasingly a lot articles now openly speak out against the sjw band. Film, essays, blogs, and politicians, professors.
the American News Media, or the so-called “journalism”, is the scum. They go with whatever is in trend, of course. On the surface they bring discussion and inform us trends, but mostly they are just peddling their publications, latch onto and add fuel to whatever issues that jolts people.
The Political Correctness, and SJW stuff, is like free sandwich. Why not? Who in the right mind would say that people shouldn't help, protect, women, the minority, and against bullying, etc?
ironically, in the 1980 and 1970s, it's the right wing moralist doing it. They, put gays in jail, put porn publishers in jail. Why? because, it's the right thing to to! (of course, today, not only fucking in the ass is legal, but man and marry man, and mainstream movies have graphic scenes that'd land them in jail in 1980s.)
but, mostly, life is too good, that's the problem. When life's too good, you never understand what hunger means, no idea what pain means, and you got nothing to do, cooking up moral theories becomes your fulfillment.

there's such a thing, chef soap. A bar of metal you rub as soap. Tenflyer Chef Soap Stainless Steel Hand Odor Remover Bar.
googling on how it works, seem there's no scientific basis.
try this. rub garlic and onion on your hands. then rub your hands against a stainless steel spoon. supposedly it'll remove the order.
schizoid personality, borderline, and histrionic
the opposite of schizoid personality is borderline and histrionic.
what's schizoid personality? it's mr data or spock in real life. or, loners. trait is no emotion. appear aloof, cold, not affable.
histrionic personality is the extreme needy, dramatic, need attention, dependent, flirtatious, need approval.
borderline personality is emotionally unstable, those cut themselves, frantic fear of abandonment, impulsive, emotional wackball.
these are personality disorders. It's a personality, but when extreme enough to effect social functioning, job, relationship etc, it's called disorder.
that's the social justice warriors. San Francisco.
the origin of political correctness
“Comrade, your statement is factually incorrect.”
“Yes, it is. But it is politically correct.”
human extinction, the ultimate tranquility
we are concerned about human extinction or planet pollution, but our instinct don't care. We mostly care for our own life, and have sex. The care for the planet, is a rational care. And that can go wrong in many ways, as in, reasoning error, political era fad, cultural bias. For example, the care for our remote offspring is a new concept only in recent 100 years, possible thru scientific progress. Thousands years before, we can't even possibly fathom, because we don't know.
because we don't have intrinsic interest, issues like global warming, nuclear bomb self-destruction, is only for those well-fed to worry about, and mostly in a passive way.
also, in true scientific spirit, we have nihilism. That is, even if we went extinct in 2050, so what? As philosophers of idealism or materialism would both say, life goes on, or, the universe goes on. You feel no pain. In a sense, that's ultimate tranquility.
this is good. video published Nov 5. Julian Assange talks to John Pilger (FULL INTERVIEW)
the thing about sjw is quite interesting, from observing society point of view.
in past 3 or so years, sjw invented/popularized lots terms: triggering, micro-aggression, gender binary, cis gender, mansplaining, rape culture, shaming.
The sjw want society to be a Disney land.
twitter is echo chamber hell
i always tried to be independent of my opinions and lone wolf.
I don't reply or chat or heart ♥ or RE other tweets. (because, typically my opinions is such soon there's argument, then thorny issue of how you argue with friends. I don't back down if my opinion isn't changed, and that usually ends up hurting friendship or acquaintance. So i usually just avoid replying. No, i don't do small talk, i don't do pleasantries.)
since 1 months ago, i started to do all that. Like, heart, chat, retweet others. And, i can see that, Twitter encourages it, it increases my post views, and in turn i also got more ♥💕. You see, that's what twitter want you to do. To interact, and get addicted. Their business grows on that.
the heart or like and Retweet reduces you to an ballot marking idiot.
may it be programing gem or computer science or math or politics or great art, chances are, none of whatever you read from twitter is worth shit. (the likes of hacker news shit)
the worse problem is, once you heart lots tweets, twitter knows where you belong, and a echo chamber is opened for you. You'll start to see tweets that you want to hear, and your tweets will reach few.

The poetry of America SJW 2016
when you vote, u are not just casting a ballot. You are extending your power, a power struggle, for your own interests. this is why, people get angry.
you, programers, are part of the elite. well-to-do, thinking you know the best for humanity, changing the world. Your views, benefits yourself.
i supported Obama back in 2008, because i think Bush is a war criminal and should goto jail. Hillary is worse, but a smooth criminal.
sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia. The poetry of America SJW 2016. Sing it, and you'll be a saint. The world, gets worse.
why the obsession with sexism racisim stuff? because, for rich people like yourselfs, it make you feel better. You are a good man/woman.
you, well-to-do programers, have no clue, the actual racism, sexism, pain, of the poor and suppressed. You are the oppressor, indirectly.
there r tons of material debunking SWJ views. Videos, articles, lots by women. But no amount will sway you. That's the nature of politics and religion.
The SJW stuff is getting real bad in past 3 years, into the programing field. Code of Conduct etc. If you have diff opinion, you live in fear.
Natural courtship between men and women now is under police watch by the SJWs. A state of political correctness. No free speech.
the damage of sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia in usa, is but a drop of water in bucket, compared to what us empire's killings abroad.

Twitter Trump Bots and Clinton Bots War
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.
sites that logs your page up/down key or scroll
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.
