Mind Sprinkles

I enjoyed the activity of Brainstorming as part of a group before my forced retirement. I eventually renamed my own part...Mind-Sprinkles; I even called one of my web-sites that better name...back in the day.

I had to make a new thread because the range of this ramble covers a lot of ground. Also "Wake the hell-up! Seemed a terrible name for a thread. Even, if my friend Fred may have applauded me for boldness.

My subject? WWII did NOT really end. Neither the cost nor the threat from 1945.

Since the end of WWII, the World has never went back to Peace, <iow> the "more relaxed" postures held by most Nations during the immediate years post WWI.

A great deal can be learned, by anyone’s effort today, about the rise of Intelligence-agencies all over the world during WWII. I'm not saying that spies and data gathering were not important before WWII but that the Power and Control of Intelligence Operations, the world over, became a foremost imperative inside Modernity and is now used by "all National figureheads."

Because of the advances of Intelligence Methods & Technologies during WWII, post-WWII, was and is hell-bent focused on the next WW. It is not only expected but is necessarily "anticipated".

What I add to this History-lesson may seem a large-jump but my conclusion is no jump at all but a reasonable observation based on the actions of Nations,  since the end of the second world war.

Keeping my scope narrow and merely setting aside for the purpose of my present opinion, the wider picture of “today’s” national actions, behind security & protection issues on the global-stage, I will only use the Soviet-Union and the United-States (cold-war) as my examples, by which the "need" during WWII has only escalated and consequently gone horribly wrong in the needs of peoples. What was needed by a Nation in real wartime, is NOW business-as-usual in our more recent and more modern world. What would have been near-intolerable if known behind War-Propaganda has become dominant in Peace and it is far uglier.

I have used this word many times @ HC lately...Misdirection. It is the "key" behind all Magic-displays staged by magicians. In short, to achieve an illusion, your Magic, you must distract the minds of your audience, or the “slight-of hand” (today it’s a slight of thought) or your subjects will not believe your Viola! Moment.

Reason should reveal to us all, that both the Soviets and the Americans never stopped fighting WWII, it just became something else. As Robert McNamara said; "Cold-war? hell, it was a Hot-war!" Of course he did not mean a repeat of the global war of WWII but a "new-war" (of contested power) that had emerged behind exhaustive money-spending (it finally broke the S.U.) that was taken from each nations' citizen's pockets, and where the “means & ends” of TECH was worshiped in chasing the destructive "necessity" of making bombs that would make the two previous different technological-bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, look insignificant by comparison.

However, that was not the end of these two combative nations behind a "perceived necessity" towards escalating response strategy to an "imagined" outside threat." To this day Nations “imagine” being in a War and spend money they did NOT earn and prepare accordingly; as they wish.

So, where to get the cash? You already know where. No Nation is asking its source of revenue (their own people) for this doomsday-enterprise, much less,  their consent to funding the plans.

However, widespread taxes and planned devaluations of currency, has reaped benefits, taken from the trusting & ignorant masses, by attacking personal money & worth in every way conceivable. This happened first in Banks where the old citizen practice of “low-return” safe-investment was replaced, to then be duped into accepting merely an “illusion of HUGE-GAINS” behind fixed-gambling in the grand casino-stock-market, called Wall-Street. As if that were not bad enough, the very creation of Lotteries and Winner-gains-all schemes deplorably only replicated the same reality with the same damned end-result for the foolish masses, that already lived a serious financial-slide and headed closer to poverty, to once again be duped. However,  in this instance, they “willfully-volunteer” (debt-despair is a powerful tool) to be slowly bled-dry “a new way”, to,  “once more” in the end, make one new millionaire. I was blind for a time...<imvho> the masses are still blind. For flavor, I will just add...Banking & Loan-Scandal and Wall-Street-Bailouts. No one went to jail. The Elites were given the free-mammon made-up of taxpayer-blood - sucked from our shrinking brains. Monopoly, Collusion, Conflict of Interest, Bribery and Fraud are today’s real-economic factors, probably now in a Nation nearest you.

<imvho> This tragic and paramount paradigm of "clear and present danger" exists today in nearly all nations on Earth. The Cold-War was never just a Soviet-American show because it impacted lives around the Globe, but now, undeniably, it is one much larger, nasty, pool where most National-leaders fearfully swim.

If Fear, as I think it is, at minimum, is a part of "the enemy at the gates" for single Nations, than all money spent in sustaining and expanding Intel-organizations around the world in every modern nation today are based on believed and anticipated levels of Threat. The Iraq war is an excellent example of this ill-thought modern Spell.

Unfortunately for simple people like myself, the political-canvas I have only “started” painting, is complex and cannot easily be grasped, (or painted) behind the effort of having peanuts with your Beer/Ale. (I tried that many times)

Fact: President Eisenhower warned of another very serious and looming Power; when upon leaving office, he not only warned American's but the world at large about the makers of weapons and their power in steering the course of a nation. Ike was not blazing a new trail here, he actually followed in the footsteps of George Washington. Washington was the leading American general before becoming President and Ike walked that very path. Washington feared, as most of the founding-fathers... a “standing-army” but he also warned the world about “The baneful effects of Party”, where “party-members serve themselves or the Party and not the Nation’s people.” George also said during his leaving office, “to be wary of Foreign Intrigues and Foreign entanglements” where “the Interests of other nations will be pursued at the interest of OUR Nation and its people.” Politician's don't care about ol' Georgie today.

Now we turn to the Global Elite which greedily and blatantly now exercises absolute control of "the money of all Nations", and they impact the taxation and lives of all peoples, behind the collective reality of the entire world today as their own personal piggy-bank. Fact, one man was able to bring Britain to-heel by his lone control over the pound-Sterling. No power like this should EVER have been fostered and allowed to grow for any single person on this, OUR, Earth. That IS pure Tyrannical-Greed displayed by the twins of Power and Wealth.

I may well be at risk, right now and only because I care about all peoples across the world. I have “decided to type" this, because true Freedom is saying what MUST be said and “NOT being forced to lie”.(D. Bonhoeffer’s sister-in-law) I obviously hope I am not in danger but that IS the world that most of us live now. When, Truth & Justice are set-aside for “Vested” interests at that exact time...what is best for the Nation and not the People is “necessarily determined vital”, behind both belief and practice. Which, if you’ll see the bigger picture, is, in its nuts & bolts, virtually...a new Religion; one of control and power, very much mirroring the middle-ages' Catholic-church, pre Gutenberg's press. But repeating, yet again, across the world, it is the same ancient, tiresome and destructive ego telling the people today; “only what they need to know".

1991 should have ushered in a new age for Humanity, or at minimum been the chance for a new era in "TRUE" world-unity and cooperation but we collectively have anything but that today. The world seems more fractured and splintered now than at any time in recent history.

I will now historically return to a time "twice" during the early years of WWII and it involves two nations in the West.

The first is Britain and it’s Intel-program Ultra. Bletchley Park, thanks to a breakthrough made by Polish code-breakers, received the "starting-point" from which to begin the difficult task of cracking the Enigma. Soon, Intelligence were able to know that German bombers were going to bomb coastal cities. The decision was made to NOT report this to the British-public to save their lives. Instead Britain’s government weighed the real-cost of British-lives against a “prediction” of a higher loss of life. The debate was;  if British Intelligence, announced the bombings and saved British civilians, the UK’s future war-effort risked German-Intelligence realizing that their “unbreakable Enigma-code” had been cracked. It was real War but boil it all down now…Men in offices decided who lived and died.

My true tale happened offshore of America’s east coast and involves German U-boats during the “Battle for the Atlantic”. America was in no way prepared to go to war. Before, Pearl-Harbor, most Americans wanted nothing to do whatsoever with another European war. However, FDR and Winston had already developed a close relationship that had already led to FDR’s actions and his own abandonment of a stance of neutrality. He was “not all in” because he had not the support of the majority of Americans behind him.

When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, FDR did NOT declare war on Germany. Instead, 4 days later, Hitler declared war on the USA. Hitler was INDEED on drugs...a slew of them.

Admiral Donitz, a WWI U-boat Captain had a brilliant strategic weapon in Germany’s improved U-boat technologies. Behind his strategic idea of the “Wolfpack” making U-boat attacks against Allied-shipping, Dontiz ordered his “hunters” to off-shore America and had Germany’s “second happy time”.

The City-lights along the eastern seaboard of the United States, shined as if the world was at peace. The lights of Jacksonville, Charlotte and many American cities were not shut-off and made the perfect aid providing silhouettes of tankers and other merchant shipping from many nations. A very large number of ships went down in flames and civilian seamen of every nationality were burned to death or drowned in frigid waters to become food for sharks.

Huge flames could be SEEN off-shore and at times bodies of non-combatants (truest sense) washed up on beaches where throngs of vacationers enjoyed their peaceful lives. The U.S. government made no changes for a long time because, the truth is, they did not have the means to respond against the U-boat.
So, no questions regarding what was witnessed along the coast and a strict silence was put in place. People literally “could not believe their eyes.”

I am neither arrogant nor self-righteous and do NOT mean to call to question, the weighed decisions of WWII leaders in the very real moments of a World at War. But what does greatly trouble me, is that it seems to me, that the very framework and motive of fighting that awful war yet continues inside all major nations, as if WWII did not end. Further, Nations today anticipate WWIII as if it MUST happen. The unnatural natural end-result of such firmly held beliefs IS ushering into reality the very thing we do not want.  <iow> Wish-fulfillment; but who’s wish? World-wide Peace can NEVER be possible, if it is not believed possible. If everyone else is your “potential enemy”, then potentially...you can have no friends.

What all nations around the globe need today, is genuine unselfish and self-sacrificing Leadership. I think it safe to say, our wanted universal definition of Leadership, in which most of us not only place what little left of our hope but now NEED...has seldom flowered on this Planet.

I know full well that it is quite possible, that a Rabbit of different purpose,  may be magically pulled from inside the Magicians’ Hat. It could be that there is a diabolical plan, that by using the fear of war, all wealth has been and will be sucked from the larger mass of the common-people living around the world. However, that may be, I think the evidence within the middle-east, Venezuela & South America, Mexico & Central-America, South-east Asia, here is the USA and on and on, speaks to me, whether by ignorance or intent, something very sinister has been and is at hand. Under the magnifying-glass of Reason, both perspectives are detrimental to the lives of common people everywhere. Where, because of fear, we all live under observation as if we are the misguided minds. I do not thing we should be continually sacrificing to the God of War and expecting conflicts, which is only to willfully summon yet another hellish war, with far more likely devastation, then can be humanly-conceived and to blindly and irresponsibly cast that Evil on our shared Humanity.

Moving on, WWIII has already happened folks but it was the financial slaughter of small-businesses and the middle-income families across this earth, by Multinational-Corporations joining their greedy hands with Intel-Agencies and thousands of leeches sucking inside all our Governments. You see only THEY “know what is and what should be in YOUR best interest.”

It's tragic to me how a chosen-few, that have never made a tangible product in their lives, play the role of middle-man/woman Demi-Gods desiring and working for complete control over the masses everywhere.

I think mr markkur, you trying to make complicated thing even more complicated, you are trying to join and systematize a hell bucket of events, that maybe even not connected , or truly connected, you cannot check it for sure. Connecting technological jump after War2, and raping some single woman, it is looks ridiculous as bloody hell itself But who knows.. Ooops, I have accepted "The Rape of Sweden" in the too straight manner, I am sorry, I realized that it was a something metaphorically. - I am mega sleepy for now.. In the civilization of the humans, you cannot be for sure, about anything, I think you are paying to much attention to the innovation of the Nazi-guys, yeah it's was great, but in the time of technological revolution such things happens, and actually Nazi-German guys even don't have even a single generation that successfully grows under "their rules and government system", so I can say that most of this innovations was only technological and mostly the result of the legacy of the previous government system. In addition the bucket of peoples will have same effectiveness, mostly will have, despite of around what you will gather them, "pure nation", "Totem-spirit", or a "God/Allah" (I have no disrespect, just making as an example of something that in history of mankind gathered peoples arround), "pastafarian monster", etc, it is doesn't actually matter, organized peoples is usually more effective than disorganized, of course after some time the peoples will realize that is is a nonsense, or they just become bored , and you will need to create another myth that will satisfy them  - I am joking.

<imo> The Great War, will be till that moment when on the planet Earth will left only one single power. I placed ma' bets on US, SU, and CPR - this guys survived and gather a lot of force and power through a "Darwin Evolution" of human society. - I am joking, better do not accept it as something serious.

Understand & Accept that A "Design of Experiment" can become incredibly complex because the Scientist or Technical-Engineer (my RL)etc. must "identify all impacting-factors." On the global stage some topics are very complex with Schematics that look more like writing A.I. than anything resembling a simple solution.

Btw, None the less, I have offered one-simple-solution that Christ taught. "Defend but do not Attack" and I got zero takers. It appears WAR is not only embedded in all Governments it is embedded in today's Humanity. Why do I say that?...the evidence at first-glance appears "here" there was no passion or compassion enough to jump on board with the single best way to stop humans killing humans outright for anyone's bidding anywhere on this Earth.

to be honest, man, i try not to focus on what's tearing the world up(because i really don't see any solution to it, but only watch as it speeds up). i've made some attempts to prepare for what i think is coming; and even those attempts have become pretty lazy; especially over the past couple years. i was much more gung-ho with all this stuff 2(or was it 3 or 4?) years ago.

Good luck in this case , if you will find something interesting, make me happy and inform frostysh about that .
Besides, I see no words like that, in your "moded" - Statistical Approximation, Probabilities, Risks, ... etc. Well I think it is not a very good idea to express  such complicated things like "bucket of relays and switches". Well I have some lot of experience of talkins' with Engi-guys, programmers, etc trough the Holy Internet (well of course those guys probably sux in their profession, not like you mr markkur), and I think they all have some kind of bias, with a different level of progress . I can express this bias like "A + B = C, IF THEN, A + B, A + B etc" - they always trying to find simple explanations that will satisfy their emotions (Idk, it is psychological, well I know small about psychology, I have read for a little only a single book of those guys - Freud, and even not finished it... ), and due to their profession this bias becoming something really chronically . I also have some experience in talkings with a Theoretical Physicists, which was MUCH more sophisticated in their "models" and explanations, and <imo> their models not so sux. But those Theoretical Physicists was an old as the bloody hell itself, same as smart. So perhaps when those engi-programmers will be same old, they will have similar sophisticated and a cool models, Idk.
But this is only my own, very biased experience, so who knows .

It is like a model of the mr phe, but from the opposite direction .
You can imagine the situation:
Two soldiers walking through a something, Idk, a jungle for a example. Both well armored and have a modern assault rifles, or something like that. And then, they see each others - what they need to do?

1) The first soldier, follow the J. Christ rules saying "Greetings! We come with peace! ", and do not trying to make any attack movements but he/she is prepared to defense, as you said mr markkur.

2) Second soldier, don't give a damm, about any J.C., or similar stuff, and till the first soldier trying to say something, this second one just start shooting without any words.

Well the result: Even despite the fact, that the first soldier has been well-protected by a body armor, he/she obtain some bullets, even if those bullets will hit the body armor, the soldier more likely will be on the ground, and the attacker will continue to shoot, and shoot into this fallen soldier with a very predictable result...


Of course this is not mean that you need to begin a nuclear war right after you obtain such technologies, but still, sometimes the best defense is a good offense, rarely, but indeed sometimes it is works. If you want to hear the frostysh thoughts about such (I will type it, even regardless if you do not want ) - I think that US failed in the "Korean War", and "Vietnam War" because of lack of that knowledge, in the first case they were need to drop a nuclear bombs over a CPR-army. In the second case - they didn't need to use a chemical stuff, or something like that, and just build and enforce support bases in the southern parts of Malaysia, make their "operation" from there and probably make the "Marshal plan" some countries of that region too. Same as SU attempts in Afghanistan - it was too risky, about Cuban Crisis nonsense I don't even want to talk. On that background CPR is look not so bad. Of course all of those "tough guys" have the one single catastrophic bias, that in some cases is weak presented, in some - over all estimates . They refusing to accept the past as it really was, and to punish a guiltieses that have made a bad mistakes, and to honor the victims of that mistakes, of the mislead choices and a horrible idiotic decisions, and in the future, probably it will means the same decisions like in the past  - But this is only my own stupid opinion. Do not accept it too serious, for all sake...
