A Voluntaryist Case for Closed Borders

Unfettered immigration and open borders is problematic in the same way that an arranged marriage is problematic. It forces two parties to cohabitate together, rather than allowing them to voluntarily choose to be with those they are most attracted to and aligned with. Like an arranged (forced) marriage, forcing cultural integration is a violation of the non-aggression principle, and limits the individual’s opportunity for voluntary interactions in their home regions.

How to Spot Politically & Financially Motivated Science

Here is how to spot politically and/or financially motivated science, which is science that furthers political and/or financial agendas and interests. Motivated science could be used as propaganda for an agenda, or could be supported by propaganda in the form of advertising and media coverage, to ensure financial and other forms of gain. “The product of scientific achievements should be for sale. The scientist should not.” ~A.E. Samaan True science […]

Anti-logic: the education plague

by Jon Rappoport March 4, 2017 In all times and places, logic is never taught to the masses. There is no intention to do so. Now, in our “egalitarian society,” education carries with it great PR pretension, a fakery that outflanks any other period in history. Therefore, graduating students wrongly believe they know how to think. In my latest collection, Power Outside The Matrix, I include a long audio tutorial, […]

Internet Trolling & Comment Moderation – Tricks of the Troll

What is trolling? Why do trolls troll? Do we moderate comments? Why? What are some ways we make ourselves impervious to trolling? Is it ok to dialogue with others, and if so, why? The Thinker’s Guide For Conscientious Citizens on How to Detect Media Bias & Propaganda, by Richard Paul and Linda Elder Chapter 17: Dialogical and Dialectical Thinking Glossary of Critical Thinking Terms

Contrasts and Creating Your Own Reality

I would like to address the reason why I sometimes appear negative, and am not only posting love, light, unicorns, and rainbows in our writings. As a result of a comment about my supposed negativity, I decided to ask the collective being known as “Abraham” about this (usually channeled by Esther Hicks), as many seem to have a misunderstanding about their work. First and foremost, if you happen to read […]

The Hypocrisy of the Left/Right False Dilemma Fallacy

1) “I’m scared of people who have [GUNS], and some of them do violent things! For the common good, the government needs to limit and control those people! Like, make them register, keep records on them and stuff. Sure, lots of them haven’t done anything–not YET, anyway–but they all have the potential, and we can’t risk what would happen to our society if we just look the other way! This […]

Duality, Polarity, and the False Dilemma Fallacy

“A false dilemma (also called false dichotomy, false binary, black-and-white thinking, bifurcation, denying a conjunct, the either–or fallacy, fallacy of exhaustive hypotheses, fallacy of the excluded middle, the fallacy of false choice, or the fallacy of the false alternative) is a type of informal fallacy that involves a situation in which only limited alternatives are considered, when in fact there is at least one additional option. The opposite of this […]

Dirty Trick #32 – Raise Nothing But Objections

Some comments and arguments are not worth responding to with a counter argument or clarification, because the antagonist’s mind is already made up, and their only desire is to provoke us into a power struggle. They know that if they can provoke us, they not only win, but we begin to doubt ourselves, we lose energy, and we lose a little bit of our future motivation to act. We can […]

Brainwashed: Bred as Sheep from Cradle to Grave

Manipulation, brainwashing, and mind control is not just making people believe certain things to be true or false, rather they are achieved through installing a very specific mode of thinking that keeps the individual trapped within a labyrinth of self-deception. This includes systematically causing the mind to rely on external authorities for answers, reversing and confusing causality, shifting the burden of proof, begging the question, falling for false dilemmas, and the […]

The One Dimensional Gun Control Debate

The issue of gun control is not a black and white either/or dilemma (false dilemma logical fallacy), but multifaceted, which means it requires an in depth multilogical approach to discern the myriad of factors involved. Trying to solve it in a one dimensional way is both naive and ignorant, as it ignores the layers of factors that led to the second amendment’s creation—as well as its attempted downfall. ~Nathan From […]

Argument from Ignorance

I just saw a comment on a YouTube video of mine that amounted to this, “since science has not proved the existence of a soul, it must not exist”. This is a self-deceived argument though, as it is a fallacy in informal logic called the “Argument from Ignorance”. Many people use this argument to further their materialistic, “God doesn’t exist” worldview, as they have an emotional need to rationalize away […]

Why Is it Important to Avoid Compromise?

Why should we avoid compromise and meeting in the middle as a means of solving our problems? We’ve all heard the adage that “we each have our own subjective truth”, and while this may be true, it does not negate the reality of an objective truth’s existence. There are gradients of truth, just as there are gradients of lies. Subjective truth and objective truth are very different, whereas subjective truth […]

Deepening Our Generalizations

I wrote this a month ago, but because of our site being down, I hadn’t gotten around to posting it yet. ~Nathan It is the generalization logical fallacy (logical deception) to say such things as “have faith”, “be loving”, “remain hopeful”, “let it go”, and “be mindful” when they aren’t first placed within a logical context and framework that defines their meaning, as they are general concepts that can mean anything the […]

Beware of False Dilemmas

We are constantly confronted with a coordinated agenda by the media and government with false dilemmas, which is a logical fallacy meant to manipulate us, and in many cases, manipulate us towards an unstated goal. This fallacy is used in situations where “only limited alternatives are considered, when in fact there is at least one additional option. The options may be a position that is between two extremes (such as […]

Gaslighting

One common psychological theme I have been seeing a LOT in the media and government propaganda and rhetoric, is of gaslighting. Gaslighting “is a form of mental abuse in which a victim is manipulated into doubting his or her own memory, perception and sanity. (Source)” A movie was made in 1940 (and 1944), and is free on YouTube, called “Gaslight”, it captures this manipulative tactic perfectly — the PTB love […]
