You can’t teach dumb

We are worried completely and dramatically and faithfully here and all about … here and all about the state of our knowledge, our educational prowess, the mass ability of our gentry and folk to become bodies with functioning minds and minds with moving parts.

A real and noble ideal worthy of the best of our natures and the better angels of our natures.  We wish smart folk and sensible folk and worthy folk to inhabit our space and time and make life a treasure for us all.

But, sadly, however, tragically, however … try as we might … work as we will …. strain as we must … some things are just beyond the pale.  We strive to emulate the best of all of us in public and private life … in the worlds of power and thought, opinion and choice.  Tis a sad, hard task.  These are folk gifted from above.  They of the natural order of things are.  That which they have is unattainable.

You can’t teach dumb.

A second rate land evolves from a second rate front.

With the absolute paucity of any serious minded public persona we are left with the constant droning on of lame second rate and third rate minds playing little boy and girl fraternity and sorority games with themselves and calling it big person actions.

We have the dead empty soulless leading the dead empty soulless who allow these wonders the public sphere and the public forum.  Paralysis by paralysis.  Heart and soul matters are a shriveled, dried out chimera and self important non entities suck up all of the air so that the system is useless, broken, given over to those of private power.

Vacuums are evolved, created, wished for, looked for, used.

A second rate land evolves from a second rate front.

This serves the interests of order.

Fiduciary responsibility demands that business models stand firm in the desire to maximize the profits and gains of the shareholders, the investor class and all of the lucky others who benefit with gains made in pension investments and 401K ‘s.  The employee is an expense who will get that which the market will bear.  There is no power there save for the trust in the free unfettered market.  There is no counter balance.  Unions are the devils plaything.

Studies of subjects not germane to hive or pigeon hole or numb body occupying space in a dedicated ordered, preset position are not of service to the needs of a workable market place.  Higher learning and a broad based understanding of the dead world around keep the focus off of the dedicated tasks of the task and wage slave.

The fall from grace from and advancing society comes when the advancement  of society is defined by the creation of sharpened worker drones.

This serves the interests of order.

It is vital that we all learn the ways of empowerment.

Mobsters in film and story are beloved by all.  The endless associations with the means of power, force, intimidation lifts the spirits and charges the hackles of red blooded folk everywhere.  Chests can be puffed out.  Squints can be flinty.  Scowls can be real.

Mobsters in film and story are beloved by all.   Templates of behavior can be laid.  Facets of aggression and authoritarianism can be nurtured.  The way to the imposition of will can be studied.  Enemies can be dealt with.

The fall back culture of the mean and well worked is happy intimidation.  Texas gunmen.  Big city union goons.  The strain is of long tradition and honor.  It is vital that we all learn the ways of empowerment.

Force always looks for holes.

We are going to strengthen the broad based middle class so that ….

We are  going to flee from the authoritarian strains in our political culture by championing the middle class and its sustainability.  We are going to intentionally strengthen the broad based middle that serves as a bulwark against the influences of the snide, the wealthy, the powerful and those outside of the general rules and mores of our society.

We are going to strengthen the broad based middle class so that its lovely self and selves will be able to establish itself as a defining factor of nationhood open to the idea of a nationhood that is a self contained unit not open to the blackmail and machinations of those who are citizens of the world or owners of it.

We are going to strengthen the broad based middle class so that political sanity may reign and extreme views may have something large, heavy and bulbous to run up against.

We are going to do such things so that a rational stable society may emerge.

Force is always a tool. It is necessary to know who owns it.

The use of force is reserved for the government.  This helps keep competing powers and thugs from establishing their own rules and their own ways.  This is how governments regulate aggression and fear.  This is how they establish order, law and protection.  This is also a changeable position, challenged by those who wish access to the force they deem necessary to protect their interests, to advance their interests.  This is also a changeable position by those who respect not government, find government an impediment, wish to establish powers of their own.  Governmental force, non governmental force, both, may be bought and sold.  The question is always begged …. the challenging of this force always threatens chaos.  Lack of checks upon same brings a submissive society.

The force of power is challenged for abundant reasons, acceptable to the common good, unacceptable to it.  The will to master sanctioned force keeps government functioning.  This functioning may be mastered by the interests of many, the few.  The pressure upon those who control the trigger, the use, is invited often.

Pro government, anti government ….  force is always a tool. It is always the means to societal safety.  It is necessary to know who owns it.

The power to manipulate starts with such things.

A world of wage slaves and survivors is a world that needs to clamor for order, an order that may enable the wage givers to survive and stay whole and profitable.  Those others wishing to become wage slaves need order so that there may be a hope of expansion so that they may have wages as well.  This is a dependency factor, the dependency upon those who have the means, the power, the wealth to create valued, needed opportunity and growth.  All dependency factors work well into the hands of those who can become the masters in the equation, the party upon which dependency is bestowed.  The power to manipulate starts with such things.

Those in position to be divorced from the rest of their societies by reason of freedom of movement, wealth, access to state or personal force, access to the all little power vacuums or power positions need work the dependant other.  It is in their interests to create or allow to be created systems, states where such dynamics are in play.

In clashes of culture, in clashes of idea, in clashes of venality, authoritarianism is a comfort to many.

Messy worlds always call for the rise and hope of the authoritarian.  Struggles demand order and order comes only when stasis can be reached by some means of an acceptable balance of interests in a given society.  Chaos, threats to established mores, distrust of present power structure, legitimacy of present power structures, aims of present power structures all push for action, retaliation, desired order flowing from desired necessary power.

All power vacuums invite challenges.  Systems who can be open to challenge are wary of any openings to shared power or diminished power.  Conflict breeds lack of order, danger.

Be it here at home, be it in a different world, authoritarianism is always lurking, is always an antidote to uncertainty, lack of acceptable structure.

In clashes of culture, in clashes of idea, in clashes of venality, authoritarianism is a comfort to many.

The smart would be of help.

The soft underbelly of a free society comes in the ways in which it can be exploited by the internal power vacuums created by same.  Systemic faults are always there.  Systems can always be gamed, abused.  The muscle and will that pushes agenda, that opens any wheels to be greased, that lives for, works for, has the entitlement for power always goes against those with interests to resist, those with interests in preservation of the values of the system.

Access to the levers of force, the force of the state, forces challenging the state, this is paramount.  Challengers angle enough to make themselves the de facto masters of allowable behavior.  Be it the terror of the disruptive or those who skew and game systems for other ends there is always leverage given away by those who are not hard eyed.

The willing are required to keep societies free from being weak imitations of that which they strive to be.  The smart would be of help.

Law, order, sustenance, these are the tricks of those with the gun.

Should power go to those who understand a structured society, one with a place for every loser, a boss or set of bosses for every rung on the ladder?

Should power go to a society full with valuable strivers who just know that evil lurks in machinations of success and the developments of an order drawn from a market place of idea and economic values?

Power goes where its practitioners take it.  It is inhibited by those who find a way to diminish it, tame it, oppose it.  It is value neutral.  It is there to be managed.

Law. order, sustenance.  These are the desires of the powerless, those of no influence.

Law, order, sustenance, these are the tricks of those with the gun.
