    Immanuel Kant
    The evil effect of science upon men is principally this, that by far the greatest number of those who wish to display a knowledge of it accomplish no improvement at all of the understanding, but only a perversity of it. It serves most of them as a tool of vanity.

    Immanuel Kant
    Immanuel Kant (22-Apr-1724 to 12-Feb-1804) was a German philosopher and one of the central Enlightenment thinkers. Kant's comprehensive and systematic works in epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics have made him one of the most influential figures in modern Western philosophy. In his doctrine of transcendental idealism, Kant argued that space and time are mere forms of intuition which structure all experience, and therefore that while things-in-themselves exist and contribute to experience, they are nonetheless distinct from the objects of experience. From this it follows that the objects of experience are mere appearances, and that the nature of things as they are in themselves is consequently unknowable to us. In an attempt to counter the skepticism he found in the writings of philosopher David Hume, he wrote the Critique of Pure Reason (1781/1787), one of his most well-known works. In it, he developed his theory of experience to answer the question of whether synthetic a priori knowledge is possible, which would in turn make it possible to determine the limits of metaphysical inquiry. Kant drew a parallel to the Copernican revolution in his proposal that the objects of the senses must conform to our spatial and temporal forms of intuition, and that we can consequently have a priori cognition of the objects of the senses.

    Infowars: Kalergi Plan
    The Kalergi Plan (Italian: Piano Kalergi), or sometimes called the Coudenhove-Kalergi Conspiracy, is a far-right, anti-semitic, white nationalist conspiracy theory, which states that a plot to mix white Europeans with other races via immigration was constructed by Austrian-Japanese politician Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi and promoted in aristocratic European social circles. The conspiracy theory is most often associated with European groups and parties, but it has also spread to North American politics. @ LINK.

    Infowars: Turkish Deep State - Susurluk Car Crash (3-Nov-1996)
    The Susurluk car crash took place on 3 November 1996 in the small town of Susurluk, in Turkey’s Balıkesir Province. It resulted in the death of three of the passengers: Abdullah Çatlı, a former ultra-rightist militant wanted by police for multiple murders and drug trafficking; Huseyin Kocadağ, a senior police official; and beauty queen Gonca Us (Çatlı’s girlfriend). Sedat Bucak, an MP, escaped with a broken leg and fractured skull. The Susurluk crash was a key event in the unravelling of the deep state in Turkey. The peculiar associations of the crash victims and their links with Interior Minister Mehmet Ağar led to a number of investigations, including a parliamentary investigation, of what became known as the Susurluk scandal. @ WIKIPEDIA LINK.

    Infowars: Whole Foods
    Classist? I'm no Whole Foods shill! There's no bargain in the food industry. Every dime saved at checkout is extracted multiple times in the supply chain. Source any Trader Joe/Aldi/Walmart/Lidl product. Trace it to the producer. It'll become clear why it's so cheap in store.You could say: "What do I care about supply chains or distant food producers? Just give me the savings." This is your prerogative.But our willful 'not my problem' approach to market consequences - who pays, writ large - is devouring the planet and has corrupted industrial agrifood; which means degraded products on shelves.

    Infowars: Eugenics Ethics - From Chance to Choice: Genetics & Justice

    From Chance to Choice: Genetics & Justice @ AMAZON LINK.
    Written by four internationally renowned bioethicists, From Chance to Choice is the first systematic treatment of the fundamental ethical issues underlying the application of genetic technologies to human beings. Probing the implications of the remarkable advances in genetics, the authors ask how should these affect our understanding of distributive justice, equality of opportunity, the rights and obligations as parents, the meaning of disability, and the role of the concept of human nature in ethical theory and practice. The book offers a historical context to contemporary debate over the use of these technologies by examining the eugenics movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition, appendices explain the nature of genetic causation, gene-environment interaction, and expose widespread misconceptions of genetic determinism, as well as outlining the nature of the ethical analysis used in the book. The questions raised in this book will be of interest to any reflective reader concerned about science and society and the rapid development of biotechnology, as well as to professionals in such areas as philosophy, bioethics, medical ethics, health management, law, and political science.

    Is it a crime in the UK, potentially increasing sentence, to misgender a trans prisoner? Can a male self-identify as a female in the UK and be placed in a women's prison?
  • "No. Misgendering doesn't increase sentence."
  • "No. Males can't self-identify as female to be placed in a women's prison."
  • Justice Minister Lord Wolfson of Tredegar QC (2021): "Incidents where a prisoner uses incorrect pronouns for another prisoner will be considered on a case-by-case basis, in line with the Prisoner Discipline Procedures policy and the Prison Rules. Prisoners may sometimes make an honest mistake in relation to pronouns and disciplinary action would not be appropriate in those circumstances. However, if an officer deems it appropriate to place a prisoner on report , the rule against using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour – Prison Rule 51(20) – stipulates that where an offence motivated by another person’s protected characteristic(s) under the Equality Act 2010 is an aggravating factor it may merit referral to an Independent Adjudicator."
  • Under Prison Service policy, any prisoner who has legally changed their gender, and been granted a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC) to prove it, will automatically be sent to a jail appropriate to their new gender. A prisoner who identifies as the opposite sex but does not have a GRC will initially go a prison for their old, legally-recognised gender.

    Is it OK to put young lives at greater risk for the sake of older lives potentially facing greater risk, e.g. coronavirus caught by grandkids passed on to grandparents?

    CDC data shows very very low risk from Coronavirus vaccines (mRNA or ad-vector) though the chance of serious side effects increases - separate to co-morbidities - for much younger patients, especially males under 21. CDC site numbers give between 5000-1 and 20000-1 serious myocarditis/pericarditis risk for mRNA (Pfizer/Moderna) vaccines, especially after second dose. This risk is far higher than the risk of serious Covid-19, for that age/gender group. Is it OK to put young lives at greater risk for the sake of older lives potentially facing greater risk, e.g. coronavirus caught by grandkids passed on to grandparents?

    Ivermectin Incentives
    Ivermectin in clinical hands is a safe proven globally available antiviral. There's no medically or ethically sound reason to aggressively persecute and restrict use; or censor even discussion between experts. It makes no sense. It has nothing to do with getting vaccinated. The only concrete reason for the official crackdown on every aspect of non-vaccine responses is that vaccine emergency use requires no other treatments to be available.It's naive to think there wouldn't be regulatory capture when so much money is at stake. As a sidebar, the lack of AstraZeneca vaccine authorization in the USA - the non-profit vax - because it'd decrease Pfizer/Moderna revenue, is another smoking gun. What other reason to exclude it? The consistency of profit over patient is too comprehensive.
