Freedom is Slavery


 



 

 
March 6, 2010
 
I got that idea from Orwell.
 
But, as I look around me these days, I think the words should be reversed.... Slavery is Freedom.
 
Yes, that seems to more accurately predict the attitudes I see around me.
 
HI remember someone once trying to convince me that "free enterprise was neither."
 
I could never figure out what he was trying to tell me. It kinda struck me as being equivalent to saying, "football is neither."
 
Maybe my logic is impaired.... (where is my disability check????) so I figure what he was trying to tell me was that "free enterprise," is neither free nor enterprise.
 
In the movie, I noticed a sign... it said, "Regulation Meal."
 
Sound remotely familiar?
 
In another segment I noted, "Ignorance is strength."
 
All I could think of at the moment was the person I heard asking, "Where is my Obama money." Yes, ignorance is strength... but not to the person who asked that question.... would it be too much for me to conjecture that ignorance is indeed the strength of those who wish to rule the ignorant?
 
The sheep, the cattle.... the livestock.
 
I went into a Tim Horton restaurant recently and I saw this guy come in with a ring around his nose.
 
Being who I am, I could not help but interpret his self immolation as an open invitation to those who would govern to grab that nose ring and lead him on down to the pastures of socialism. Was he a product of government education? How could he so willingly advertise that he was willing to be treated as nothing more than livestock?
 
Thought Crime
 
We are not there yet. We don't have the technology. Just wait until the government has come up with a way of expropriating technology, skewing it to it's own ends... to the point where every citizen will be required by law to have a "thought chip," implanted in their mind.
 
The "Human Rights Commissions," will have a field day!
 
No longer will they have to rely upon interpretations of things you said, or are alleged to have said, or things you said which might be subject to various interpretations.
 
Nope, once those state mandated electrodes are implanted in your brain..... there will be no escape for anyone who has an opinion outside the parameters prescribed by the state.
 
They will have you squarely by the balls.
 

 
If you doubt this, just consider what happens to some people if they dare to volunteer what it is they may be thinking.... they could have avoided being skewerd by the HRC's if only they had shut the fuck up!
 
But they foolishly opened their mouths and revealed the contents of their minds.
 
When individuals are perscuted for speaking their minds, is it such a stretch to imagine that, given the technology, they not be persecuted for using their minds?
 
BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU
 
The government of the City of Hamilton has, by virtue of it's coercive power to permit or deny the right to earn a living, imposed a new mandate upon the local taxi industry. As of May, 1st, 2010.... all taxicabs will be required to have in car cameras.
 
BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.
 
I noticed a sign or something in the movie... about the "Ministry of Nice." It instantly reminded me of Dagwood McGoofball's mandatory.... yes, MANDATORY, holiday.... "Family Day," which mostly benefits public sector union members, who get yet another day off with pay... at the expense of the rest of us. Now isn't "family day," just NICE?
 
I think of how NICE it is... when I go to work on that day. It's so NICE i have to double up on my beer purchase the day before because I am such a NICE guy. And because the nice people who work for the government have a right to enjoy quality time with their families while I am expected to keep on working to make it happen.
 
You know, I am getting tired of being NICE.

How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
My Warning from an Uberpeople.net "Moderator." I just got a message from one of the moderators of the uberpeople.net Toronto driver's forum. In it he states, "This forum values opinions from all angles. However, being argumentative, name-calling, personal attacks, instigating other members, and any post that can be deemed confrontational will not be tolerated. Please refrain from any posts of this manner, even if instigated. We hope you can tone it back a bit going forward. Please review the terms and rules http://uberpeople.net/help/terms" I think he was feeling a bit humiliated after he read my criticism of his limp response to my "Uberpeople Service Animal Discussion" that I posted in the Toronto Uber taxi driver forum. Things have really changed in the last twenty-five years. It used to be quite the rollicking back and forth in discussion forums. Now, whenever you get the better of some smart-ass who takes shots at you, he threatens to have yo…

Hamilton's Check Engine Light Crisis and Other News

Unanimous Pro-Uber City Council Vote: The Damage "Check Engine Light" Crisis Uber MADDness Uber Hamilton by the Numbers Working with numbers can be a lot of fun. At least, I think so. I once took an in-house course, back when I had a real job, called "Strategies of Experimentation." I can't remember anything I learned in that course, but it made an impression on me that impacts my thinking to this day. It says that if you don't have solid data to work with, use the next best thing. Try to build a cloud of probability. Use whatever information you do have and think about whether it falls within the realm of reasonable expectation. The following analysis attempts to use this approach to some degree. What is known for sure is the approximate amount each taxi operator pays to the taxi broker for the service of matching riders with drivers - just like any other "technology company." That is $500 per month, per cab, or $6000 per year, per cab. With 44…
