Manifestation of evil

Evil manifests unpleasantly, not because it understands that that is the most effective form in which to be reviled and feared, but rather that it cannot manifest as anything else.

If you care about what everyone else thinks then you'll always be wrong.

Law signs

When there are too many signs the message is lost. The same applies to laws.

Gifted fanatics

Intelligent people have unquestioningly believed in, and fervently acted upon, religious prophecies for thousands of years.

It is dangerous to assume that this is no longer the case.

Election years

In an election year the fork of the tongue is stretched to breaking point.

Position on the pyramid.

When you're at the bottom of the pyramid and look up, all you can ever see is the level above you. When you're at the top of the pyramid and look down you can see every level below you.

What is Socialism?

Socialism is where "takers" use the monopoly of force that is The State to take what the "makers" produce.

Voter intelligence

If you don't think the average person is smart enough run a country, what makes you think they're smart enough to pick the correct person to do it for them?

Believe in the bus and others will surely buy your tickets.

Anthropogenic climate change

Humanity's interaction with the environment will change it in ways that current models will fail to predict while future generations will implement solutions that are currently unthought of.

Weak people

If you know a man is weak, know that he will always be weak..

Shallow assurances are no substitute for strength.

Wasting time

Waste time, but do it in a direction you want to go.

One in a thousand

For every thousand chicken littles screaming that the end is nigh, for every thousand naysayers preaching doom and contraction through their pursed and wizened lips there is one person with hope for the future who dares to ask why not.

It is this one person who carries the thousand to new and better lives. It is this one person who takes humanity from stones to the stars.

The commons

The commons - if you don't control it then do you really "own" it?

Hollywood endings

If there's one thing that ruins a factual, impactive movie it's a soppy ending with swelling, Hollywood choruses of violins.

Let the facts stand without the emotional manipulation.

Blessed children

The biggest blessing to give children is to let them know they're OK as they are. The biggest curse is to tell them they are special.

Watch the claws

A leopard may look like it has changed its spots but only a fool would stop trimming its claws.

Rely on politicians

Whatever the cost to the community you can always rely on politicians to do the right thing ... by themselves.

Dirty adversaries

Sometimes you have to roll around in the mud now with the pigs you intend to slaughter later.

Never too old

How glorious to die unexpectedly on the first day of an undertaking that you had never expected to experience.

Right in front of us

The human eye is an incredible thing.
It's connected directly to our brain.
Yet many of us never think about,
What's right in front of our eyes.

Starting a war

If you're going to start a war make sure you're too "important" to be conscripted to the front lines.

Wait for me

Don't tell me what I should do, simply wait for me to ask you.

Climate Change solutions

One of the great fears of many climate change alarmists is that a solution is imminent.

State of the devil

"The devil's finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist" (Charles Baudelaire)

The State's finest trick is to persuade you that it does exist.

Good morning opportunity

Every day is an opportunity to make a change from yesterday and set a new direction for tomorrow.

Classical profanity

Anyone can swear but it takes a genius to play the piccolo amusingly.

Friday, October 09, 2015

Seeing things

Locale and a sense of righteousness can dangerously skew perception of reality.

Life missions

Sometimes strangers can give you missions that you would never accept from those closest to you.

Humorous life

Life is far too serious to not make jokes about it.

Your final month

If every year was a day then how would you spend your last month?

Externalities

A Captain who blames the storm cannot claim credit for the calm.

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Preparation

A General who prepares for wars anticipated and unseen is worth more than a room full of Generals who boast of what they would have done.

Sunday, August 23, 2015

Reaction to perception

A dog will hurry a familiar meal to rush back to an unfamiliar treat.

Truer words

The same words can be both truth and lie - look to the utterer.

Robust checklists

A robust checklist is one that can be ticked off with confidence (and actual effect) from the depths of inebriation.

Risk management

Risk management is installing a circuit breaker and still not sticking your knife into the toaster.

Sunday, August 02, 2015

Wise mistakes

Wise people embrace mistakes and share what they have learnt.
Fools ignore mistakes and proclaim their infallibility.

The Environment's friend?

Perhaps the environment's best friend is large groups of people voluntarily coming together as one, rather than one small group forcing people together?

Government safety

I wish the government would stop trying to keep me safe ... it's making me afraid.

The size of character

Height has nothing to do with size. I know smaller men who I look up to and bigger men on whom I look down.

The modern Bible

Some may argue the Bible is "a living book that through God's hand reveals itself as a text which adapts in order to stay relevant throughout the ages".

I would say that "reworking" what is supposedly God's word as society's politics change, is suspiciously like the the hand of man giving the finger to God.

The future

The future marches on regardless and relentlessly.

Piss on the state

Pee on the tree and your lemons go free - the same goes for the state.

The plague of government corruption

Have you ever been in a mouse plague?

In the morning you sweep up all the crap and disinfect the floor.

The next morning it's back.

As long as there is a mouse plague you'll still wake up to the same crap.

To your goal

If you don't move towards your goal then where do you think you're going?

Elderly radicalism

The older I get the more radical I can be because the chances of me living to regret it diminish with every passing year.

Freedom of the populace

History has been exceedingly unkind to populations who cede their sovereignty on the say so of those they cede it to.

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

Creeping, crawling power

If I hadn't seen legislation corrupted and twisted from it's "fine intentions",

If I hadn't seen power hungry men make laws for their own power and control,

If I hadn't seen freedoms lost from unintended consequences,

Then, and only then, would I consider my fears and cautions to be hypothetical.

Perception and knowing

Just because we can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there.

Just because we don't know it, doesn't mean it's non-existent.

Coerced directing

If someone is holding your testicles you tend to move wherever they lead you.

Individuality

One of the great joys of life is for every view of the world there is an alternative which is equally as valid for another person.

Government manipulation of metadata

Decide the narrative you want.
Steal the data you need.
Create a context for incrimination.
Prove your narrative with data taken out of context.

Government gangsters

The perspective of government gangsters is that they make understandable mistakes but you are deliberately trying to steal from them.

Thursday, April 16, 2015

Open leadership

It's incredible what can be achieved when people are allowed to imagine and materialise their inner artist.

Great leaders allow. Poor leaders try to control.

A well behaved populace

In the meantime citizen - keep consuming, keep believing, keep behaving.

Thursday, April 02, 2015

Perspectives

Life is too important not to make jokes about and I am too insignificant to take myself too seriously.

Powers perverted

The powers given to today's "good" government are the very same powers granted to the bad governments of tomorrow.

Pitfalls in power seeking

Unintended consequences nearly always humble the "cleverness" of power seeking humans.

Solutions

The world is never short of solutions to problems, we just have to find them and to find them we first have to be prepared to look.
