A Logistics Battle

Ukraine is fighting a logistics battle. For the same reason Russia couldn't hold Kherson it will not be able to hold Crimea. It can't control the GLOCs. Ukraine does. With arty and rocket armed partisans. "Amateurs study...... "

Ukraine's strategy is not to defeat the Russian Army, but strangle it. So far Russia has no counter. It hasn't figured out how to keep an Army in the field without supplies.

The End of Russia As An Oil Power

I was watching this video and heard an assertion that America goaded the Russians into War. Of course I had to respond This is what I said.

America did push the Russians into a corner. And Russia, falling in with the plan, responded with its weakest tool. The Russian Army. Russia has finished itself as a 'Great Power'. Because you can't be a Great Power without a credible economy and a working Army. The world is going off oil. What will Russia sell? Lumber?

Russia's best were holding Kherson. The best part of their Army couldn't hold its ground. What does that say about the weaker elements coming forward now and in the future??

Also note - the end of oil would have pushed them in any case. We just hurried the transition and made American oil companies richer by reducing Russian flows. The Saudis are helping in that endeavor by reducing their flows. Even America's enemies want to help it.

America in a sense controls the world oil market by renting out oil technicians. Be nice or we will sanction your help. They weren't. We did. Russia is done as an oil power a little earlier than the end of the oil era.

Now Is My Best Chance

I was reading Ukraine Volunteer Transcripts Blog and greatly enjoyed his talks about his adventures in a recon unit. And then I came across this interaction on his blog amazing for its dark humor. I couldn't stop laughing.

You know, not a lot of people have experienced the full spectrum of modern warfare the way you have. From nukes to small unit actions.

Well, I have not been IN a nuclear war. Guess now is my best chance…:)

The Nature of Politics

Here is my short version. More explanatio below.

Abused children run the world. Hitler. Stalin. Putin.
Gangsters are abused children.
The God of abused children is Satan.
They are heartless.
Thus child traffickers. And everything else.


Abused Children run the world. - It is a matter of degree. Some are more vile than others. They got there because they crave Power and Control. Initially the craving starts out as a defense mechanism, but often transforms into revenge for beatings and molestings. Out of that comes mass murder.

Gangsters are abused children. - When I was associated with a gang, every member I talked to in detail was an abused child. That common bond helps create gangs.

The God of abused children is Satan. - The resemblence should be obvious.

They are heartless. - How else do you survive inflictions from 'loved ones' ?

Thus child traffickers. And everything else. - Any occupation where heartlessness is an advantage. It's just business.

There Were No Classified Documents at Mar-A-Lago

This Twitter post just proved there were no classified documents at Mar-A-Logo. The writer states that much more than a lock is needed to protect classified documents. The Government just asked for a lock.

The guy who wrote the article wants Trump arrested. He can't see the implications of his own writing. (You need more than a lock for classified documents - he goes into details)

Democrats are so full of hate they can't even see the obvious.

They have officially gone insane.

PTSD is a Spiritual Disease

Hitler was an abused child. Stalin. Putin. Child abuse causes PTSD.

PTSD leaves the victim permanently angry
PTSD leaves some victims in extreme desire for power and control
PTSD destroys human empathy and trust
PTSD victims believe the world owes them a living
PTSD victims believe they are never wrong

Sound familiar?

Read, "People of the Lie" by Scott Peck for a shrink's evaluation of PTSD cases.

The chief problem of people with PTSD is the continuous anger. P. D. Ouspensky in his book The Fourth Way – pdf has a method for getting rid of PTSD. It works. I used it on myself. The main rules are simple.

1. Do not identify
2. Do not consider
3. Do not tell lies
4. Do not express negative emotions

Read the book to find out the meaning of the first two items. The third item corresponds to "People of the Lie". And the fourth item? People who are continuously angry are full of negative emotions. Not expressing them reduces their effect. And also in time reduces the desire for expressing them.

This all assumes you are paying attention. And that is another effect of PTSD. You don't pay attention. Because if you did you couldn't like yourself (hurting people that do not desrve it is not a self esteem builder). Thus the only way to continue the anger is not pay attention to the results. You have to be indifferent to the people you hurt.

Russian Casualties in Ukraine

I have seen reports in the comments of 2,500 Russian dead. 2,500/150,000 = 1.667%. After 1 day of fighting. At that rate he won't have an Army within a week. 6 days actually. (10% is a decimation). It may get worse. That might mean a Russian collapse within days. The battle over the capitol will be telling. If it goes on for more than a day it means serious resistance  and the odds of them taking the whole country are seriously reduced.

If it even gets that far.

Lets hope we avoid the bog as well.

Russia is not a strong country. They can't afford to lose. Which means their incentives are wrong. They will continue past the point of exhaustion.  The last time they overdid it there was a revolution. 1917.

The Syria Pullout

I wonder if “pulling out of Syria” was a cover story to cover at least some of the troop movements needed to get al-Baghdadi. Or maybe it was just a coincidence.

Intersectionality

Dividing us into groups. The smallest group is one.

Pandering to the individual IS liberty. That is their end game.

I don't think they have thought this through.

Two Ecologies


After spending a lot of time on the 'net (too much) I have come to some conclusions about the recent election. I was discussing those conclusions with the blog master at this blog post.

It turns out that each side of the two main opposing groups in the last election is sure the other side is unrepentantly evil. And in fact that is correct. They are.

How is it possible that both of them are correct? Well each side is correct because they live in different environments. And the different ecologies require different moralities. The rules for success are different. I explained that in A Thermodynamic Explanation Of Politics. You should read the longer article linked there to get a deeper feel for the thermodynamics of each ecology and its associated culture.

A short hand explanation that most Americans will get is City vs Country. In recent election terms we had Hillary Clinton who won the City folk and Donald Trump who won the Country folk. It becomes obvious in this map.

The morality difference is highlighted when you hear City folk disparage Country folk. "Rubes" (the current version of rubes is deplorables) is what City people call Country people. And when the shoe is on the other foot, the Country folk call City people "liars and crooks". Does that sound like an election you just experienced? It should.

What happened on 8 Nov. was that Country folk won. In time City folk will win again. Each side believes it is correct about everything. And they are right. For their ecological niche. Where we get it wrong is in thinking one set of laws can cover both niches. It is not possible. We should be thinking about how to handle this. Instead each side is sure the other side is totally demonic and should be punished accordingly.

Country is conservative. City is liberal. It is a fact of nature. We should take a more knowledgeable view of the situation and get over it. If we had sense enough to leave each other alone we would all be better off. "Mind your business" used to be a motto printed on our money. I'd like to see a revival of that with one minor modification. "Mind your own business."

I came up with this idea while talking to the OL about this article.

The City is a structured environment, the people are wild.

The Country is a wild environment, the people are structured.

Evidently nature requires a minimum amount of chaos to function properly. We see that in electronics. You can make some circuits more accurate adding a little noise. The noise helps prevent the circuit from getting stuck at a close but not as exact as possible value. But you have to "tune" the noise. Too little noise and there is no effect. Too much noise and the results get too noisy.

Now let us get back to politics. Why hasn't this understanding gotten more attention so we can better optimize our political systems? Divide and rule. With Country and City at each others throats ('they are a direct threat to my way of life' - "they" of course being the "other" side). While that little (as in full time giant) war is going on our owners can focus on using government for their own ends.

Here is a guy who agrees with my premise.
...the left versus right dynamic is being instigated by global elites, and that this could result in both sides moving to opposing extremes of the political spectrum; communism versus fascism. That said, they also wanted to know what I thought should be done about the left in particular? Sure, the elites are the root cause of the threat, but what about all the crazed leftists the elites hide behind and exploit? Don’t we have to deal with them at some point as well?
I'm against dealing with them in the ordinary sense. We should try to figure a way to acknowledge our different ecologies and form a solution based on that. The author has some ideas. (Emphasis added)
The danger is that while conservatives now appear to hold the keys to the behemoth that is government after wrestling it from the left (again, at least in appearance), we will be tempted to swing the cannons of the bureaucratic battleship towards our foes and in our favor. I’ll have to use the old Lord of the Rings analogy once again here — big government is like the “one ring;” it will always result in evil, no matter who is wearing it. Good people will take hold of it thinking they can resist abusing it and that they will exploit its incredible power to help others; and they will fall into darkness like everyone else.

The solution? Conservatives must face leftist extremists on equal ground. We must avoid the temptation of using government as a weapon to extinguish them. We must avoid stooping to their level. Otherwise, there is an serious risk that we will falter in our principles and become just as bad if not worse than the regressive left. And yes, this means a decentralized civil war — a war in which government is denied as a player.

As long as conservatives refuse to wield government as a sword in our arsenal, we will win against all enemies.

The second we wimp out and beg government to aid us in our fight, we will be co-opted and assimilated by the elites.
My god. Do you see what he is saying? He is advocating some kind of libertarian solution. Stop government growth? Who ever heard of such a thing? Limited government? Isn't that some kind of blasphemy? Doesn't government need control? More control? Unlimited control to keep order? I don't think so. Too much control promotes disorder by making government unadaptable. And that leads to chaos. Too much chaos.

Also note: I have been saying for years that if Republicans stuck to economics and gave up their war on Democrats (the culture war) they couldn't lose. The benefits of a prosperous economically sound country would be a boon enjoyed by all. Winning a culture war battle only satisfies half the country.

The abortion war is a prime example of how the Republicans should work to achieve a goal. The abortion rate has been cut by a factor of four over the years and it is still declining. It has gotten to the point where a vast majority of the country opposes abortion. And it shows up in the abortion rate. It should also be noted that despite wide spread personal objections to abortion, over half the country wants abortion to remain legal. But of course that tends to vary by State and population density. What should be done? Keep talking. And keep government out of it. In fact that ought to be a general rule.

Keep government out of it.

Probably a rule for all ages. Our founders generally thought so.

Does Ted Cruz Have Sex With Rats?

Yeah it is nuts. But look at what Ted Said.

“He’s a man for whom a term was coined for copulating with a rodent,” Cruz said. “Well let me be clear, Mr. Trump may be a rat but I have no desire to copulate with him.
That kind of says that he prefers other rats.

Uh. Ted. May I give you some unsolicited advice? You should think through your "extemporaneous" expressions before you make them. Lest they be misinterpreted.

Behavioral Sink Behavior And Thermodynamics

You can't eliminate behavioral sink behavior unless you eliminate behavior sinks.

That means for one drug "addiction".

Addiction in a behavioral sink

The abortion/gestation question comes to mind.

Many [female rats] were unable to carry pregnancy to full term or to survive delivery of their litters if they did. An even greater number, after successfully giving birth, fell short in their maternal functions. Among the males the behavior disturbances ranged from sexual deviation to cannibalism and from frenetic overactivity to a pathological withdrawal from which individuals would emerge to eat, drink and move about only when other members of the community were asleep. The social organization of the animals showed equal disruption. [...]

Behavioral Sink
It is more than obvious that the two parties represent the two ends of the spectrum and you are not going to eliminate the behavioral sink party until you eliminate behavioral sinks. And efforts to change behavior by politics are for the most part useless. And I might add counterproductive.

The party that claims to be so in touch with natural law is for the most part ignorant of it.

Here is an article that discusses the issue from a thermodynamic viewpoint.

The Red And The Blue
What is my conclusion relative to politics? Both political parties are right about the proper way to live. In their ecological niches.

A look at the Weimar Republic:
What people leave out of the Weimar experience and IMO its foundation is the lack of men – killed in the war. We are doing something similar with our divorce laws. And our drug war on the Black Community.

And the 60s? Similar. Look up the M/F ratios.

When there are not enough men you get loose women. Culture dives when the M/F ratio is out of whack.

The Weimar Experience
If only the two parties had some understanding of each other politics might not be quite so rancorous.
