The Game of Life

When I was growing up, we didn’t have the Internet. We didn’t have hundreds of TV stations, movies on demand, or video games. What we did have were board games, some that even tried to teach life lessons about the real world.

And two succeeded …

One was called “The Game of Life.”  In it, you go to school, get a job, get married, raise a family, and eventually retire.  The person who ends up with the most money wins.

Will you go to college?  What career will you choose?  How many kids will you have?  With every turn, you get to “spin the wheel” of life to determine the next set of choices available to you.

The other game was called “Monopoly.”  In it, everyone starts off with the same amount of cash, and earns the same salary as they travel around the board.  With each “roll of the dice,” opportunities and challenges come your way, including options to buy land, houses and apartments. Your goal is to accumulate wealth, while avoiding taxes, the police, and greedy landlords along the way.

When playing Monopoly, wealth tends to accumulate in the hands of fewer and fewer players.  One by one, people are driven out of the game via bankruptcy, until just one person remains.

The Game of Life is a friendly game. Everyone starts out together, faces common life questions and challenges, and everyone finishes together.  The game of Monopoly, not so much.  While everyone starts out the same, one by one, people are forced out of the game when they can no longer pay their bills.

Life Lessons

People are divided today, because we are playing different games!

If you believe everything the media is telling you, and all of the “authorities” and “experts” they amplify, then you are probably playing the Game of Life. With every “spin the wheel,” you choose from life options as they are laid out for you.

If you have already lost your job, your home, or your business — or you are about to — you probably recognize the game as Monopoly. With every “roll of the dice,” you get closer and closer to wealth … or elimination.

We are divided today because people in the first group can’t see the world through the eyes of those in the second.  They can’t see the cheating that’s going on. They can’t see the corruption. They can’t see that the game is fixed. They can’t see the hopelessness.

They can’t see the remaining contenders are sociopath monopolists who will stop at nothing to “win” this game.  They will lie, they will cheat, they will kill … they will do whatever it takes to accumulate control over all of the world’s resources.

Whether your game is life or monopoly, our true adversaries are the forces of consolidation and control.

As always, thoughtful comments welcome.

Yesterday, I sent this email to Dan Dicks about his recent experience being targeted by an irrational mob of apparent Antifa members, his subsequent arrest and treatment by the Canadian police, his impugned reputation in the main stream media, and his de-platforming and de-monetization by major Internet companies.

I doubt it got it through though.  I doubt much of what I’m writing is getting through.

Either way, I’ll keep posting these things across multiple venues, until our censors lose control of the narrative …

Hi Dan,

If all of the things that recently happened to you had happened to me, I’d be filing a slew of lawsuits against the organizations, government agencies, and individuals involved. I’d do it very publicly, with very little money, without an attorney.

I’ve done things like this before, so I know this can work.

I’m not sure how this applies in Canada, but I believe you could do something similar. If you’re interested, I’ve documented my journey on this blog: Adventures of a Pro Se Litigant

Please let me know if I can help.

This guy sees what I see …

This guy sees what I see … about the fed.

The Truth Behind The Current TWISTED NIGHTMARE

Circumventing Censorship

Today, we live in a world that is interconnected at an historic rate.  We can directly interact with billions of people via phone, text, and email, as well as assorted online platforms.  News is also abundantly available through traditional TV, radio and print, as well as newer venues like youtube and other online websites.

But what appears to be robust and permanent, is actually fragile and under attack.  Messages that differ from the accepted narratives are being deleted at an alarming rate, while those responsible for those message are being demonetized and de-platformed.  People are also being shadow-banned, resulting in their messages getting reduced visibility and circulation, all without anyone’s knowledge.

And it’s not just the private networks either.  We know from governments like China and revelations from Edward Snowden, that even more draconian measures are possible.  Websites can be de-indexed from the search engines, taken offline, or even replaced with fake versions.  Phone numbers and text can be blocked, as well as entire cellular and Internet networks.

To circumvent these measures, here are a few options:

  • For shadow-banning, instead of relying on your platform to provide messages on your wall, visit your subscribed pages directly.
  • For de-platforming, make sure you have more than one way to reach your subscribed pages.  If you subscribe to someone on facebook, twitter or youtube, make sure you subscribe to at least one other venue, preferably their main website.
  • For de-indexing, you’ll want to make sure you have bookmarked your subscribed websites directly in your browser.

For the more draconian measures (like entire cell phone or Internet networks being shut down), you’ll want to go old-school.  For less than $30, you can get a hand-held HAM radio that allows you speak directly to others.

HAM Radio

These offer point-to-point communications with no monthly fees, and no-one in the middle to block your messages.  They have a direct range of dozens of miles, and much further with amplifiers and repeaters.  With these devices, people can also form networks to relay messages to each other … just like in the old days.

Please note that, in normal times, you will need a HAM license (cheap and easy) to broadcast on these devices.  In an emergency, however, you’ll be grateful you have one, license or not.

Until next time.

My Poor Wife

After weeks of sheltering in place together, I think I’m getting on my wife’s nerves.

And who could blame her. As my friends can attest, I can be a little … intense.

My problem is, I live in a different reality from most people. It’s not the one you see on TV. I first noticed it when I was younger, when it was more subtle and difficult to detect. Over the years it has gotten worse, as those responsible for fake versions of reality have consolidated their power and control.

Now they are merging it with technology in a most frightening way.

Recently, facebook, youtube, and twitter have announced that only approved messages will be allowed on their networks. As an example, a press conference held by two doctors was just removed for providing opinions that differ from the approved narrative. Now we are being told of forced vaccinations, contact tracing, and immunization passports. All in addition to lock-downs on demand.

It paints a future that we will not like, and it’s getting closer by the day.

And yet, not everyone can see it coming.

So every night, I watch the evening news to better understand the fake narrative. And every night my wife has to hear me yell at the TV set, as our nation inches closer towards its demise.

Coronavirus Death Rate

I recently lost my mother back in January.  She was 83, living in a nursing home.

She had suffered a variety of health issues leading up to her demise, as her immune system broke down due to aging. The death certificate said she died of heart failure.

Had she died today, it probably would have said coronavirus.  Here’s why …

To track deaths in a standardized format, the World Health Organization (WHO) has established a set of codes that the rest of the world follows. Because testing for this virus has been problematic (with chronic shortages of test kits and supplies, and faulty and inaccurate results), the WHO established two codes for the coronavirus: 1) if the death had been caused by the virus as verified through testing, and 2) if the virus was a likely cause of death but not verified.

As you can imagine, the second code is a much easier standard to reach.  And as a result, the vast majority of coronavirus deaths reported to date are suspected, not confirmed.  And it’s even worse in the US …

Here the CDC is instructing doctors to use the second code “if the virus is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.”  No longer must the virus be a likely cause of death, simply contributing to death is enough.  With this standard alone, my mom would have qualified.  But it doesn’t end there …

President Trump recently declared a national emergency for every state in the union.  That means there are billions of dollars of emergency aid available to the states, based in part on the number of coronavirus deaths they report.  That’s like putting gasoline on a fire to put it out.

When you put it all together, we have exaggerated coronavirus deaths, and a coordinated policy of “scaring the shit” out of everyone.  All leading us to an economic catastrophe.  Why?

Until next time.

Coronavirus Invitation

Hello Everyone,

I hope this message finds you well.  I hope this message finds you …

With so much extra time on our hands, I’m inviting you to a written conversation about world-changing ideas and concepts, as well as other topics I’m passionate about.  Please email me directly with any private thoughts, or publicly on my facebook or twitter feeds.

These days, across the major platforms, you never really know how widely a posting is being distributed.  Or whether it’s being suppressed, or distributed at all.  Our reality increasingly exists in the ether, which is under increasing manipulation and control.

To bypass the censors, I also suggest subscribing to my personal blog, RSS Feed, or moderated mailing list.

As always, comments welcome.  Until next time …

Post Capitalism

We hear many people calling Bernie Sanders a Socialist. A Communist. A Fascist.

Whatever you call him, he is a progressive. He’s trying to address the structural imbalances that have built up in the current system. And that scares the hell out of those who are benefiting the most.

This is why they are trying so hard to frame this as “something to be feared” vs. Capitalism. The truth is, capitalism as we currently know it, is the problem. Its never ending quest for growth and maximum profits, without regard to the resulting pollution, depletion of natural resources, war, and human misery.

While capitalism may have served us for a spell, its days are best behind us.  Don’t let the talking heads convince you otherwise. We need a different path.

P.S. This is not an endorsement for Bernie.

In this Instant

Everything that has ever happened in your life, has brought you to read these words at this moment in time.  What you do in the next is under your control, and can impact the arch of your future.  In every instant, of every minute, of every day, you can make a decision that changes the direction of your life, and impacts everyone and every thing around you.

It is “in this instant” that free will can be expressed, and the future can be changed.

Unfortunately, most decisions are made on autopilot, and propelled by habit and tradition.  To change the direction of our future, therefore, we must better understand this autopilot, so that we can set the controls toward a new, better destination.

Until next time …

Talk on Fenello Talk

For those interested in world-changing ideas and concepts, I’ve recently launched Fenello Talk, an old-style email discussion list.  Beginning today, I’ll be adding curated content from that list into a new category of my blog called “Talk on Fenello Talk.”

Here is the first entry, beginning with my response to Richard Moore’s post: “The story of my quest for understanding:”

On 11/13/2019 9:20 AM, Richard Moore wrote:

My theories of ‘the problem’ and ‘the solution’ have evolved by this process over the years … Eventually I reached the position that still dominates my thinking: the problem is hierarchy itself … We’ve lived under hierarchy ever since civilization began

By common definition, civilizations share 1) a hierarchical social structure, 2) a common belief system, and 3) a written language.  That means that every civilization from the beginning of “time” has had some type of centralized authority, supported by beliefs as echoed in their written language.

Note that all three are related.  If someone is able to capture the written language (through censorship or propaganda, for example), they can impact the common belief system, and impact the social order.
