“In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.” George Orwell

 

mits, are you sure you're qualified to discuss NORMal in any form? pre, present, or post ? ;)

 

'POST NORM'

 

Don’t bother googling- I just invented it.

Feel free to add to the list.

 

1. With the advent of ‘the internet of things’ and plans to connect the human brain directly into it, even the thoughts in your head will no longer be private. The surveillance state is merely a precursor to get society acclimatized to the idea that privacy will not be tolerated in the future.

 

The very idea that a person could be harbouring private thought of any description that isn't state sanctioned will be viewed as something sordid, disgusting, and criminal. The phrase ‘dirty secret’ will take on a new meaning.

 

It will be the very young and those to be born in the near future who will be so indoctrinated by the state that Orwell’s ‘thought crime’ will be fully achievable. A micro chip implant will fill in the gaps and thought crime will become rare.

 

So, the ‘new norm’ will be that private, independent thought will be viewed in the same way we view the mentally ill now.

 

Naturally, along every step of the way to this ‘utopia’ large sections of society will demand their own enslavement in much the same way as those who demand to be enslaved by the EU.

 

In the US The Trumps will become the new Clinton/Bush type dynasty. That’s what you get when you demand change in this world- no change. Extra toughened, safety standard, no change.

 

War=peace

Freedom=slavery

Privacy=secrecy

Secrecy=sickness

 

2. It will become ‘post norm’ to believe that the human mind is in any way superior to A.I. (artificial intelligence)

 

People will laugh at the idea that we ever believed we possessed qualities that A.I. could never replicate. But you know what they say: ‘he who laughs first laughs last’

 

I am probably typing slightly beyond the limit of my intellect here, but…. isn’t all emotion based on the concept of self awareness? What would your response be if you were ‘raised’ with an intimate awareness of your creator and then realised you were superior to him in every way?

 

The alternative is that we merge with technology and become some sort of hybrid. Either way, humanity as we know it will become ‘post norm’.

 

3. It will become ‘post norm’ to believe your body belongs to you. The state will

own your body and your mind.

 

Already in the US enforced vaccination is taking place, so it wont be long now. If you’re having difficulty understanding why your refusal to be vaxed is somehow a threat to the willingly vaxed, you really haven’t been paying attention.

 

This isn’t about logic. it’s about subservience. Fascism has never been built on logic. Nothing humans have been involved in has anything much to do with logic. Why the fuck do you think Spock spent most of his time on USS Enterprise in a state of confusion? :)

 

 

Interviewer: What is your definition of success?

Leonard Cohen: Survival.

Mitsubishi: Freedom

 

love it :rofl:

 

Here are some (probably unwelcome) 'references' for your excellent 'beyond article'

mits, My concern with AI domination is not extremely high...

Ultimately, AI can never build serial safeguards to its energy sources faster than determined humans can imagine and implement ways to cut that energy off.

... speaking of Energy! https://srsroccoreport.com/unlocking-golds-true-value-the-economic-code-finally-revealed/

 

 

 

 

btw certain parties have a stake in preventing TL from being associated as one of those 'fake news' sites...

but as I have been saying for years now, the 'voice of trading' is part and parcel of the 'establishment's' ongoing enterprise of FAKE NEWS...

'POST NORM' Pt-2

...The "fake news" is that we've never been healthier, healthcare costs are under control and our economy has fully "recovered." These sustained "fake news" campaigns are intended not to induce hysteria, but an enduring acceptance of what is visibly destructive and insane.

 

Food for thought as we enter 2017. Always start every inquiry with a simple question: cui bono--to whose benefit?

Zdo... as usual, I had to seek out a definition. The use of the word "snowflake" is rather amusing, as it was something that I had never considered (which always amuses me).

 

Mits... We have recently been encouraged by a Trump spokesperson that "we" need to consider what's in the man's heart, rather than what comes out of his mouth. Well, that's just laughable on all fronts. I (we) have no idea what is in another man's heart (head) other than by his actions and what proceeds from his mouth.

 

Trump is definitely "unprescidential". That aside, he was properly vetted, and elected by "we the people", so for at least the next 4 years this is what we have... may as well find some humor in it. It will be blustery sailing ahead...

 

The only real issue that I have is that this dancing buffoon is going to be able to put "POTUS" on his resume... turns my stomach every time.

I may end up liking the guy, but in the aggregate... from what I have seen...its going to be a hard sell for me...

jpennybags,

 

Trump is not politically correct.

 

Trump is not conventional.

 

Most of what the world knows about Trump they nether saw nor heard with their own eyes and ears; instead, it was crafted by the liberal media.

 

Trump is the most successful person to enter the White house as POTUS.He has had businesses that have gone bankrupt. Neat trick to still be a billionaire. As a trader one must respect his ability to take risk without losing it all.

 

As a far as one could be qualified to be POTUS before being POTUS, Trump is the most qualified we have seen, or, using others as benchmarks of qualification, he is overqualified.

 

"Oh yeah? He'll see how hard it is when he is finally sworn in." Trump will be underwhelmed.

 

We (USA), under the DJT regime, will have rising interest rates, deficits, and GDP. All 3 normally indicate higher volatility in markets. The rest of the world will feel the ripples.

 

Traders will get rich. The liberal media won't know this or share this.

MM... As a trader, I think we are in agreement that DJT is going to be (has been) good for "business" (my business and yours), but I do have reservations...

 

Strictly speaking, concerning trading... there are so few who can actually advantage themselves by playing the upside or the downside of events. These are the people that the so-called-liberal-media (so-called-conservative-media) concerns themselves with. By and large, for the media, it's about selling product. In that regard they are no different than any other business entity. A "flavor of the month" business model works, and if one can monetize "bullshit"... what else is to be expected. Stirring the pot (emotions) is good for business, but it's unlikely that the reader will actually become better informed.

 

So it goes for DJT... a love / hate relationship with the media. Monetizing "bullshit" has been his specialty (really?... the whole "birther" thing... com'on man). It's a "cluster fuck" in the making... I hope I'm wrong, but from a "traders" perspective, I hope I'm right.

 

Trade it as you see it... there are few other viable options...

I too am looking forward to trading the 'trump' years - even though it will probably not turn out like any of us may be imagining now. The automated FX trading has already been great since late fall just from the uptick in ‘price travel’. Finally getting back in the groove with ndx trading... I haven’t been around to trade much since late November - holidays, kids visiting, sick and dying friends, friends visiting from overseas, new office and hardware, and etc etc.

 

and while I’m calling names

jpeeny you are a White Helmet ;););););)

Post #92... zdo has perfectly illustrated the point I was making about the feckless nature of "the news". This is not news you can use; just more pot stirring. It's laughable, yet sad at the same time.

 

In the "white helmet" vain... if one wanted a more reasoned view on inner city poverty:

 

"More Than Just Race" / Author: William Julius Wilson

 

Please though... do yourself and your neighbors a favor and turn off "the news".

 

Just saying...

re: "Post #92... zdo has perfectly illustrated the point I was making about the feckless nature of "the news". This is not news you can use; just more pot stirring. It's laughable, yet sad at the same time."

 

That’s a weird criteria - "news you can use" ???. Maybe you score some serious utility with the news but for me, 99.99 % of MSM is not news I can “use”. I find about 0.0001 % of ANY news is news I can “use”

 

so re: “do yourself and your neighbors a favor and turn off "the news".” ------ It’s not “news”. It’s even worse. It’s “just sayin”.

JP, in light of its even worse “feckless nature” you would probably be best served ignoring anything prefaced or followed by “just sayin”. It might stir your pot.

 

just sayin :);)

My pot was not stirred... hope yours wasn't either. It was a typo, but I used the word "yourself" rather than "yourselves" (it does make a difference).

 

There was a time, when I was young and idealistic where I found myself disgusted by the media (and politics)... now I'm just amused. Yea... Maxine Waters is always good for a laugh.

zdo spoofs jpm writing about zdo

 

zdo,

 

Once again I had to look up one of your stupid long words that I hadn’t seen since college. If you care about being thought credible and intelligent, do not use complex language where simpler language will do. There are consequences for erudite vernacular utilized irrespective of necessity.

 

Love you.

When 'fake news' and 'peddling fiction' meet 'alternative facts'.

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” — W. Churchill, House of Commons, 22 October 1945.

 

... puts us in mind of that dictum concerning property asserted by the Father of the American Constitution, James Madison, when he said, in the tenth Federalist, that ‘the protection of different and unequal faculties of acquiring property [is] the first object of government.’ One might add that according to Madison, the U.S. Constitution is intended to provide equal protection to unequal abilities. This is just as surely what Abraham Lincoln meant when in 1864 wrote to the Workingmen’s Association of New York that ‘Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; it is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise’”
