question everything


QUESTION EVERYTHING 1

I couldn’t tell you what experience turned the old adage from ( I believe ) the 1960’s, “question everything”, into a concrete life guiding mega-rule.  It could have been the night and day difference between private and public education.  Teachers refusing to admit being caught in blatant falsehoods.  The Army with its One Size Fits All philosophy enforced by its universal answer to everything along the lines of a parent telling their four year old “do it because I’m in charge and I said do it”.  It could have been just having read enough conflicting viewpoints on everything.  But from whatever single or cumulative experience, I took the advice of questioning everything very seriously from a very early age.  Now, on the one hand this is a big pain in the ass because there are no hard and fast rules about anything that you can build a comforting architecture of support to guide all the question life throws you.  On the other hand, learning something new everyday is pretty easy this way.  And I don’t mean to descend into some kind of philosophical quagmire here, of a sort seeking the meaning of life.  What I mean is, everyone has an agenda, including philosophers.  So question everything other people tell you.  Chances are good they are out to screw you, directly or indirectly, and caution is in order.

Okay, let’s take fun but convoluted examples.  Most readers are more than likely exasperated and confused at my extreme hatred about FDR ( that has nothing to do with political parties or economic dogmas ).  I don’t care if he expanded the welfare state.  It would have been easier to stop immigration, but whatever.  I could care less if he was a socialist ( I don’t care in Obammy is one, either, per se, it is just another amusing put-down on the Chicago Creature ).  No system is perfect, and that includes Fair Market.  Some socialism is a good idea.  Mostly what I care about were the people he killed.  By dancing to the tune of his controllers the Central Bankers, he postponed the Depression ( which was caused by the bankers to begin with ) which killed a lot of poor Americans by malnourishment and disease and devaluing the money.  He was the one individual most responsible for killing our family structure and unity ( not killing anyone there, but decreasing quality of life drastically ).  He deliberately involved us in the Second World War, killing not just hundreds of thousands of Americans, wounding for life far more, but also allowing Jews to be killed for political consideration, as well as Germans and Russian dissidents.  To name just the obvious.  The blood of millions is on his hands.  So every teacher and intellectual and fawning politician who tells me what a wonderful man he was is not to be trusted with any other tidbit of information.  FDR was everyone’s hero, which means everyone is going to be looking to hump me just like FDR humped so many.

More important than a casualty list, however, is the intellectual bind loving this vile hump puts you in.  If you love FDR, because you were told to love him by those oh so impartial and good God never manipulative authoritarian figures in your life such as teachers and parents, you don’t exactly understand our hidden power elite, now do you?  You think all our troubles started after him, so you read too much into Truman and his use of the bomb ( mistaking it for something else besides naked power gesturing to the world in warning- the Nazi’s were lucky in a way to have been overwhelmed before the Japs ).  You try to pound a square piece into a round hole with the military industrial complex controlling everything only after the Second World War.  By loving FDR, you can’t blame him for anything, so you ignore the bankers.  Because if you look at FDR, he was nothing so much as a meat puppet for them.  You don’t think his policies were meant to PROLONG the Depression?  Of course they were, because those weren’t his ideas, but his instructions.  He was a slimy manipulative bitter crippled in soul and body scumbag that was only smart in power politics, not in policy or logical thought.  All those people who mindlessly chanted his praises because he provided so many jobs don’t stop and ask why so many jobs didn’t end the Depression?  Why didn’t the build-up in military equipment PRIOR to Pearl Harbor, part Lend-Lease ( welfare to favored foreign countries ) and part make-jobs programs, in addition to the imposition of the draft-again, BEFORE Pearl Harbor which to me clearly underlies the preconceived nature of military involvement-, why didn’t all that end the Depression? 

*

If the Depression was supposed to be caused by oversupply and demand destruction, why didn’t all that job creation and military equipment increase work?  If, as we are supposed to believe, gold was hurting the economy, or at least gold in private hands, why didn’t its immediate confiscation after this People’s Hero’s first election change anything?  There are far too many inconsistencies or questions to buy the official line.  If, however, you just look at this as the central banks coup d’ etat, just sweep up the loose ends after the satisfactory profits from getting the country involved in the first world war, and FDR as their boy, a heck of a lot more makes sense.

  1. Questioning your parents and other authorities is an important part of growing up.
    No wonder the government wants everyone infantilized and as dependent as any child.
    Idealized views of our prior presidents is obviously a good place to start getting a wedge in for questioning the authorities stories.
    President Washington turned around, post revolution, and put down with military intervention protests against a new United States taxation of whiskey.
    The Louisiana purchase was initially agreed to without congressional or popular agreement (though it was seen as a good thing by both afterward) same with the purchase of Alaska.
    Most presidents had several indications of being controlled by financial, industrial, and military, interests. The obviousness of the control has usually just gotten clearer with time.

    1. I think Jackson was one of the better ones, sticking up for the peasants. Theory I heard, and like- Reagan was already senile in 1980, so Bush was the evil bastard we can blame everything on.

  3. Everything you said about FDR is true but lets not forget his evil predecessor the destroyer of states right Abe Lincoln . Without Abe's ground work none of FDR's program's would have been possible. As a southerner I put Lincoln more vile than FDR but its a dead heat .

    1. With Lincoln, his approval rating is 80%. With FDR, more like 99%. I'm doing my part trying to lower it. But I take your point completely.
