INTERNATIONALISM IS THE ANSWER IN A PERFECT WORLD, BUT NOT IN THIS ONE

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY SEPT. 22, 2021) — The world finally and definitively lost its mind with the dawning of Modernity. It could not have happened before that. Our technology hadn’t yet been developed to enable our species’ desire to kill itself, the one that yet may cinder this planet.

Want a specific date when the “civilized” world derailed? Submitted for your approval, as Rod would say, June 28, 1914.  On that date, Austrian archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, activating the byzantine series of mutual defense pacts signed by a rag pile of European nations. Arriving on cue: World War I.

Five years to the day of the assassination, at Versailles, the “victors” imposed ruinous terms on defeated Germany, planting the seeds of WWII and the creation of history’s most misunderstood person (care to guess?)

———- ooo ———-

At the heart of this madness? Nationalism. n., a xenophobic movement created by geopolitics characterized by a brutish repression, a hegemonic outlook, and driven by a brainless quest for new territory.

Geopolitics stems from the mistaken notion that land can be privately owned. It can’t.

If you doubt it, perform a thought experiment. Go to Patsy Harris’s office on Bank Row and trace the provenance of any real estate deed. Let’s say you pick one that traces back to the 18th century before the records stop. The what? No matter how far back, every trace always ends. So here’s the question: Who owned the land in the first place?

No one.

No one laid claim to territory … until someone did. That first someone had no legitimate claim other than a tautological self-assertion. This makes all private ownership of land fraudulent.

Human greed, however, dictates public life. In practical terms, private ownership is the only mechanism by which we as a species can operate among ourselves given our species’ suicidal ideations. In short, we have to accommodate our selfish interests.

———- ooo ———-

Human beings have not evolved sufficiently to handle maturity, hence, the need for the fake borders of nationalism.

At heart, THE PLANET is an internationalist. We take the far view, that all humans are bound by realities far deeper than accidents of geography and birth. At the same time, we are pragmatic before all else.

Until we abandon the “I’m a this and You’re a that” mentality, we shall ever be at risk of annihilation. One world government is by far the best arrangement — but only in theory at this current stage of human development. Since the Eve-bitten apple shared with Adam, our history is one sad saga of the inhumanity of the human species.

THE PLANET reminds everyone, lest they gather in the Village Square and dispatch with the torches, that we are internationalist in theory only.

What, then, is our nation’s pragmatic future?

Take, for instance, the week that Syracuse Joe had recently.

Previous attempts at globalism have been tainted by politics, as the ruins of history attest (for example, the International Workingman’s Association, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the League of Nations, and the United Nations). When not being assailed for its ties to capitalism and imperialism, Internationalism in practice becomes coopted by ideological B.S., particularly with socialist and communist political organizations. Once more our history holds: Humans spoil everything we touch.

In the end, only the animals, insects, and plant life are worthy of this earth. They toil not, neither do they spin, and yet God feeds them.

———- ooo ———-

CHAZ

The Black Cat

By Rainer Marie Rilke

A ghost, though invisible, still is like a place

your sight can knock on, echoing; but here

within this thick black pelt, your strongest gaze

will be absorbed and utterly disappear:

 

just as a raving madman, when nothing else

can ease him, charges into his dark night

howling, pounds on the padded wall, and feels

the rage being taken in and pacified.

 

She seems to hide all looks that have ever fallen

into her, so that, like an audience,

she can look them over, menacing and sullen,

and curl to sleep with them. But all at once

 

as if awakened, she turns her face to yours;

and with a shock, you see yourself, tiny,

inside the golden amber of her eyeballs

suspended, like a prehistoric fly.

——————————————————————-

“Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” — Mark Twain.

“OPEN THE WINDOW, AUNT MILLIE.”

Most of the billions of people who currently live on Planet Earth are poor. The middle class nuclear family is a relatively modern concept that is going extinct with global politics and business so that the Elites will eventually rule with unlimited power. Capitol Hill is mostly ruled by millionaires who get even richer at the public trough by doing the bidding of sleazy K Street lobbyists. Joe Biden and his “Crime” family are all worth tens of millions of dollars each without legal and rational explanation that the MSM ignores because the Biden family are Democrats, unlike Donald Trump whose business is facing dozens of charges. We live in the age of conspiratorial politics where fringe politicians divide us with their pseudo-beliefs about religion, science and economics. I believe it is all for show to distract us from Wall Street and the top 1% taking all of the income gains, while everyone else lives in Social Darwinism that tells the working class and underclass to compete against each other instead of uniting stop the historic economic inequality, racism and greed committed by the Elites at home and abroad. In closing, it is all a game to those at the top, and we are being played like pawns on a Chess Board!

“In the end, only the animals, insects, and plant life are worthy of this earth. They toil not, neither do they spin, and yet God feeds them.”

God feeds them for sure. Worth noting is that often he is feeding them to one another. And we are also animals and we also seem to feed on each other as well as everything around us.
I have often wondered if the earth was just a lab experiment for a much higher form of life we are totally unaware of.

There’s a game called Sims. The Sims is a series of life simulation video games developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. The franchise has sold nearly 200 million copies worldwide, and it is one of the best-selling video game series of all time.

The games in the Sims series are largely sandbox games, in that they lack any defined goals (except for some later expansion packs and console versions which introduced this gameplay style). The player creates virtual people called “Sims,” places them in houses, and helps direct their moods and satisfy their desires. Players can either place their Sims in pre-constructed homes or build them themselves. Each successive expansion pack and game in the series augmented what the player could do with their Sims.

The Sims series is part of the larger Sim series, started by SimCity in 1989.

Virtual Humans anyone can create

Don’t forget to care for your Sim. Don’t leave your Sim suspended in clear gelatin.

Planting seeds of the big lie all summer befor the November election where Trump claims he will win in a landslide is just an excuse for losing.The loss was not his fault and his inability to accept another failure.Once the red states counted their votes it was Biden who would be certified as President and Trump Attorneys General would of course say Trumps claims were all Bullshit..
Trump during a national health emergencey BLOCKED the newly elected President for 10 weeks as his transition team was 3 months behind putting everything at risk .Does Trumps mental state mean anything to his supporters?no.Trump was in the middle of a preplanned Coup to overthrow America…..Biden is dealing with a 40 year border crisis created by republican to let cheap illegal labor into the US to break socialist labor unions who created our middle class and sent their kids to college another socialist institution .Biden has ended a war and Biden is now offering a huge infastructure bill that at the top end is a 3.5 trillion dollar over 10 years at 350 billion a year and 40 % of what we pay for in a military budget and about equal to the dark money in the military budget that does not see the light of day.
Biden will also be dealing with our 40 year old homeless problem that is in part a crime problem.The handling of COVID in the red states has been part Trump and FOX media misinformation…..1/6/2021 failed but the mindset to destroy democracy is still here.Trump if elected in 2024 will never leave office and that will be the day America dies.

1/3rd of the homeless are mentally ill. Reagan cut all funding for the mentally ill and there you go.Economic homeless and then drug addiction.Trump was going to fund a war on addiction and Trump was going to give his supporters cheaper better healthcare.Trump said he would lead the WAR on Covid…..Then Trump who had the entire country on his side in an election year with vaccines being developed out of nowhere plant the seeds of his lie at all his rallies and goes all red state Qannon conspiracy and throws the Covid war to the states with no one in charge.Trump failed even when he had the election in the palm of his hand.

Human nature always turns to greed and power mad behavior which is why one world government is such a horrible idea. At least by having separate countries, we have a chance at keeping the worst of human nature in check, but even then, it can get out of control, but one world government is what every dictator and madman wants. It’s what Hitler wanted. Total control. With one world government, there is no chance of keeping greed and power under control.

But, the average voter is caught up in the personalities of politicians rather than the policies they espouse.

Trump’s policies were disastrous for America and his fomenting the 1/6 riot is beyond reprehensible. Those who continue to shill for Trump and spread the lie that he won in 2020 should hold their heads in shame. It is unamerican garbage through and through.

200 million vaccinated? 200,000 damaged hearts , so far…………

“New Study Shows 1 in 1000 Develop Heart Inflammation After Covid Vaccination; Myocarditis and Other Related Heart Conditions Have Increased Death Rate Within 5 Years”
“If the results are true, it would actually be more of a risk for anyone under 65 to receive the shot than it would be to contract the virus and recover, especially depending on how young they are. Myocarditis and pericarditis both come with an extremely poor prognosis and end up killing over 50% within 3-10 years of their diagnosis. ”

I want to know what abolishing any kind of enforcement does to help to prevent domestic violence. Seems there is more to their agenda than domestic violence such as immigration, policing etc…

From the article:
Berkshire Pride Chair Kelan O’Brien said having a society that brings safety and justice means taking actions such as abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, investing in communities rather than policing them, and gender-

Susan Sarandon is building a hilltop home within minutes of the Berkshires

By Larry Parnass, The Berkshire Eagle

“Oscar-winning actor Susan Sarandon is building a home just across the Massachusetts border in Vermont.”

How god damn embarrassing. Their “investigative journalist” is doing fluff pieces about a washed up actress building a home in another state to save on taxes.

It’s not like there’s allegations of a PPD officer having sex with a minor is still hanging out there. Yeah Sgt Graybeard we know what you did.

It’s not like they couldn’t still find out if wrong way was driving a leased car while suspended.

Nothing to investigate with Dough Boy Barry and a clients claim he allegedly screwed up and costs them thousands and an audit.

Speaking of which, why not pressure the city council to go on record as to a forensic audit.

Hey Larry you gonna investigate report on birthdays next?

Dan. Was very impressed with Mr. Kronicks presentation and petition at the last City Council Meeting. He was very correct with the faulty surveys the City put forward not including all of the general public,especially trying to tell the survey people that not all people have a computer 1 ..”.and only two percent were tallied.

That’s two percent,not enough,and like Mr. Kronick said,two percent is a margin of error in most polls. Lampylousy and Maffuccio were the muff councilors that shut him down at the Mike portion.

Lampylousy actually used the phrase Dangerous President with a candidate speaking at the meeting on his petition? He’s also a taxpayer you dimwits.

No pics from the Elizabeth Freeman Center annual Sept fundraising walkathon. Why? Nothing to see. Apparently it was offensive to women and trans people, so they killed the optics. Gone are the red shoed “Walk a miler in her shoes” dudes against violence. They replaced it with the generic and meaningless “Rise Together for Safety and Justice.” IMHO it was a good campaign that got kicked to the curb by the heavily woke. I just hope they haven’t shot themselves in the foot. Hopefully the people who really need help get it and the center doesn’t end up woke and broke.

Hey Dan,

Off topic. Any chance you’ve heard as to why PPS hasn’t started pool testing for COVID yet? They claim they don’t have supplies and will start in Oct. meanwhile every other district has been doing it and finding positive cases. For all we know half the schools could be asymptomatic and spreading it.

Most of us parents feel Joe Curtis and the administration is holding out on purpose to avoid going into shutdowns, quarantines and virtual if applicable. I’m already hoping to school choice my kid elsewhere next year and she’s at a top school in the city.

Pull your kids out not before it’s too late. PPS is NOT on top of their game and doesn’t have your children’s health as a priority.

Pull your kids out because the schools are terrible when it comes to education. There is no “top school” in this city.

I agree, it’s like being in the top 1% of the bottom tier. As for the masks, its ridiculous at this point. My child has to sit inside a hula hoop, not talk during lunches and basically act like she’s in prison

meanwhile you have the Met Gala, Obama’s party, The Big E, Sporting events and concerts, etc. etc etc.

It’s Child Abuse at this point

The real story is how many tenured teachers jumped ship to other districts when they found out he was the new Superintendent. It’s unfathomable how many position are still unfilled to the point they have third part contractors trying to recruit.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Dennis Powell was right on the money with this one.

Another stabbing another shooting Dewey ave area? They don’t all happen in the Tyler street neighborhood. You would think the local paper could get acccess to the police logs and interview the chief and tell the real story about violence in Pittsfield.
Instead we are about to do fake stories about how wonderful Pittsfield is. And if the officials lie about what is obvious to everyone with eyeballs then can you believe anything that comes out of their mouths or that they have printed for idiot consumption?

Per Bill Gates, and all of the other rich and powerful men (Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, et al), allegedly having sex with sex trafficked minor women under the age of 18 who were allegedly purchased by Jeffrey Epstein with the assistance of Ghislaine Maxwell, I want to know the truth about it all already! Bill Clinton is a former U.S. President who is a twice over Convicted Felon (Perjury, and Suborning Perjury), and his wife is Hillary Clinton, who was a First Lady, U.S. Senator from New York, Secretary of State, and candidate for U.S. President in 2008 and 2016. If Bill Clinton had sex with these allegedly sex trafficked underage women and Hillary knew about it and covered it up for her own political ambitions to be elected U.S. President, then the public has a right to know the truth about them. I also believe that if rich and powerful men had sex with sex trafficked minor women, then they should face the same or similar criminal and civil charges as Ghislaine Maxwell, who is a woman. Otherwise, it is a total double standard of the Justice system.

I asked mothers of young women about Bill Clinton’s history with young women, and the mothers told me that he is wrong and that Bill Clinton is fortunate that the young women he allegedly sexually exploited aren’t their daughters. What kind of message is this sending to our own country and the rest of the world? A U.S. President, Bill Clinton, committed two felonies (Perjury, and Suborning Perjury) while he was in the Oval Office (Oral Orifice), and after he left the White House he was allegedly sexually exploiting minor women under the age of 18 and is recorded 26 times on Jeffrey Epstein’s private flight logs. The U.S. Government will look really bad when Ghislaine Maxwell stands for her trial by jury with Bill Clinton as one of the biggest subjects of her alleged sex trafficking crimes. This is NUTS!

Tribal people are not going to integrate well into our society. To expect these people to put aside all of their beliefs and take on our emphasis on 100 genders, abortion, and women ruling in the home. All of that will be a shock to their systems and could breed violence because the cultures are so different. I think this attempt at integration for so many people will be disastrous. Far better would have been to take them out of danger, but send them to other countries with similar cultures that would have been happy to welcome them.

You’re not getting this at all. The liberals are the ones who will isolate these people if they do not property integrate into our society. Unless they believe they have 100 or more genders, accept abortion, give women the upper hand, they will be cancelled. That will not play well for their cultural beliefs and they may lash out. The far left is very controlling as we have all seen and they are demanding to dominate everyone with their belief system.

Tyerville Mayor needs to stop using COVID as an excuse for the her lack luster decisions! Halloween parade is cancelled AGAIN due to COVID. This makes no sense at all. It is an outdoor function. How come she is allowing weekly bike parades on NON, a dance party on NON, Suns games were played all season without any issues. Quit lying to us Mayor! Could the actual reason for cancelling the parade be one of these other problems?

  1. Floats can no longer make it down North Street without knocking over all the plungers, parklets, cones and all the other obstructions?
  2. The City has screwed up Tyler Street so bad that cars can barely make it through?
  3. If they tried to hold it on First Street, screwed up North Street could not handle detoured traffic.
  4. But the best reason I feel is that the CRIME is so out of control in this Dynamic and Vibrant City that they are scared. Our police department is so thin there is no way they can control the parade and the rest of the City problems. In less than a week we have had quite a few stabbings and also a shooting last night. These are only the crimes that have been leaked out by social media. There is no way that Tyer or Wynn are going to tell us.

Also, hearing from many Pittsfield school teachers that their classrooms are completely out of control, many teachers no longer wanting to teach. A 4th grader at Allendale was so out of control, ended up destroying 4 computers until Police got there. Good kids are crying not wanting to go back to school because they are scared. Teachers are being attack and hurt by some of their students, yet there is absolutely no support from the Administrative losers working at Mercer, especially Curtis!

The City is completely out of control and this Administration just collects a hefty paycheck and hides.

Nobody in their right mind would hold a parade on Tyler street in the daytime never mind at night. Covid?? Who in the hell does she think she is kidding here? Even Barry would not travel on foot on Tyler at 3am and he likes that sort of stuff.
I know a few people who live in that area and they might watch a parade looking out their windows but not with them open and sure as hell not expose themselves from their front porch at night.
The mayor really thinks people are so damn stupid they will buy the covid story. If covid is THAT bad put some restrictions on the restaurants. If not, stop making shit up already. It is getting really old.

AbstractThis article examines issues related to COVID-19 inoculations for children. The bulk of the official COVID-19-attributed deaths per capita occur in the elderly with high comorbidities, and the COVID-19 attributed deaths per capita are negligible in children. The bulk of the normalized post-inoculation deaths also occur in the elderly with high comorbidities, while the normalized post-inoculation deaths are small, but not negligible, in children. Clinical trials for these inoculations were very short-term (a few months), had samples not representative of the total population, and for adolescents/children, had poor predictive power because of their small size. Further, the clinical trials did not address changes in biomarkers that could serve as early warning indicators of elevated predisposition to serious diseases. Most importantly, the clinical trials did not address long-term effects that, if serious, would be borne by children/adolescents for potentially decades.
A novel best-case scenario cost-benefit analysis showed very conservatively that there are five times the number of deaths attributable to each inoculation vs those attributable to COVID-19 in the most vulnerable 65+ demographic. The risk of death from COVID-19 decreases drastically as age decreases, and the longer-term effects of the inoculations on lower age groups will increase their risk-benefit ratio, perhaps substantially.

WEST STOCKBRIDGE — When Earl Moffatt finally crouched down a couple of months ago to apply fresh paint to an old car, he kept it simple. He chose white, and he limited the coverage to four letters and two exclamation points on the driver’s-side door.

Anyone want a 1972 MG convertible? It’s FREE!!

Since June, the rusty two-door British Motor Corp. conveyance has been hamshackled to a flatbed at Moffatt’s garage, Baldwin Motors, on Route 41 just south of the village.
