What a pleasant and beguiling way to engage with people with whom you do not see eye-to-eye, and, in the end, learn something new. There, pleasant and beguiling interchanges were a means to elicit secret troop movements and strategies.

It also has to do with the state of the knowledge, things on which the parties can agree. The mechanism to persuade is to use the psychological principle of shame and the goal is not to enlighten, which unfortunately, enlightenment becomes a ruse.

Pascal's Wager Explained

Go after people and not institutions; people are more vulnerable. Hillary Clinton wrote her Wellesley College thesis on Alinsky, interviewing him personally for her research. After her graduation Alinsky offered her a job with his organization, which she refused to pursue other opportunities.

These pages are committed to splitting this political atom, separating this exclusive identification of communism with revolution. If it were possible for the Have-Nots of the world to recognize and accept the idea that revolution did not inevitably mean hate and war, cold or hot, from the United States, that alone would be a great revolution in world politics and the future of man. Wow, that was the nastiest little book I have ever read. Every American should read this book and realize how we are being pawned. Nickel elaborates further on the Alinsky background of our President and First Lady which provides us a better understanding of the how and why of the climate mal-communication emanating form the White House and its environs.

On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. The hymnal message is being played out by the various Disciples; from the White House through Governmental and International agencies as well as, within academic itself. After all, Schneider and Alinsky are the academics, the experts.

Who else would we listen to?

The Rejection Of Pascal's Wager

Yes, nice post RiH. I had no idea the link between critical theory and the libs would be so easy or direct. I now understand who has stolen the Democratic party and radical feminism. Its all in Rules. Stir up distress whenever you can.

Retead your original post. The quote from Franklin is so refreshing and true the spirit of science and knowledge. I dont know if I will ever be able to read enough western wisdom to clear the foul taste of Rules from my brain. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. Great post lands with a thud, judging by the comments. Anyway, there is a lot of good stuff there. So you rule out considering the possibility of groupthink, even though groupthink is a scientifically identified risk that affects group deliberations? Group think and delusion are two entirely different concepts.

Do you have a paper coming out on that? I am not making a psychological diagnosis. But what Dr.

Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints, by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences. They key point there is limiting alternative viewpoints, a priori. When the process of decision making gets corrupted, you get corrupted, incomplete and artificially homogenous results.

It has nothing to do with delusions or not seeing things. Stereotyping leads members of the in-group to ignore or even demonize out-group members who may oppose or challenge the groups ideas. Self-censorship causes people who might have doubts to hide their fears or misgivings. Direct pressure to conform is often placed on members who pose questions, and those who question the group are often seen as disloyal or traitorous.

Groupthink can have some benefits. When working with a large number of people, it often allows the group to make decisions, complete tasks, and finish projects quickly and efficiently. However, this phenomenon also has costs as well. The suppression of individual opinions and creative thought can lead to poor decision-making and inefficient problem-solving. It has nothing to do with delusions. What is Groupthink? I am confused are you saying that scientists are not aware of the obvious contradictory evidence reality or they are aware of it. Because if they are aware of it, then how is this different from suffering from a delusion.

The site said it was Macbook support and malware had been installed onto my computer and asked me to call a number. Encouraging progress on the epistemological problem. As pointed out on various recent threads, two sciences occupy center stage today, sciences mutually exclusive in their major tenets. In Modern Science, the objective goal is the advancement of objective empirical knowledge, directed toward arming the public to resist all varieties of charlatans, and especially the Post Modernists.

In Post Modern Science, the objective goal is exactly the opposite, that is, subjective less than empirical , to persuade people as an end in itself. And the more the people are kept in the dark, intellectually challenged, frightened, and victimized, the easier the persuasion task, and the greater the profit from the task.

Science communication is not a disconnected art form in Modern Science, rather it occupies a particular position in the method. A Modern Scientist in climate has a simple task: predict the climate, validate the predictions with facts, then release for public action. To shirk on the predictions is unethical, a betrayal of trust however conveyed.

“I Don’t Think Food Has Anything to Do With It”

I really enjoyed this post. I watched the play 12 Angry Men on stage last night. It reminds me very much of the tactics Juror number? You have it exactly right. All that behavior comes from the same mentality and is coupled with favoring government interventionism at the drop of a hat. This also points out the link between residual christianity in the current politics. No one wants to be excommunicated or burnt at the stake.

Having an opinion is not the issue.
