Child Minding Robots

Decades ago – but not too many – science fiction writers used to hypothesize, speculate,  write fiction on what child  minding robots might be like.  Did they ever come to be.

Well here they are.

And they are so different to what was expected or imagined that it seems hardly anyone even realises they’re here.

But who looks after children any more?

Where are all the bored, idle children, meat for the devil ‘finding work for idle hands’ ?   Children ‘up to mischief’ ?

Children whining they’ve got nothing to do.  Children complaining their toy isn’t as good as the neighbour’s toy?

Children always getting in your way wanting to help and see what you’re doing?

Children constantly coming up with schemes for something new they want to do, with our without you?

Where are the children?

In the parks? In the streets?  Hanging around the kitchen? In the lounge?  In the backyard?

Nope.  Gone.

Where are they?  Sitting around somewhere unobtrusive and playing with a smartphone or a laptop or a computer.

Where they’ll easily spend half a day given the chance.  12 hours, no problem.

Day after day after day.

I’ve seen it and tested it.  A whole two weeks school holiday and two children who spent the whole time doing that: ‘interacting’ with their phones, computers, whatever.

And those phones, laptops, computers – they all talk to each other, via the internet, don’t they?

And they talk to other computers: ‘servers’  that no one has ever seen (of us) and which serve up all kinds of stuff:  games, movies, current affairs, porn, education…. everything.

So it turns out there’s really just one great big ‘computer’ or ‘cybermachine’ to which all the kids are connected.

And it looks after them,  tends, apparently, to their every need for hours and hours and days and days on end…

A child minding robot.

A global child minding robot.

And it has taken our children like the pied piper and, unlike the pied piper, it will never give them back.

But it is peaceful without them, isn’t it?


Indigenes Golden Opportunity


Indigenes have a magnificent boon denied the rest of us.

They have a guaranteed home, a place, property in the nation.

We have no such thing.  We can pay millions for a home and if we don’t continually pay the taxes and charges eventually it’ll be sold up to pay them.

Hence whatever we call ‘home’ is only ever on loan to us.  We are leasing it.

But indigenes have common land granted to them upon which they can very largely live as they wish.

In whatever kind of home they choose to build.

And they’ ll never get put off that land,  thrown out of that home.

That’s generally true I think.  It follow from this being ‘tribal’ land belonging to them and from which they can ban access to anyone else.

The situation gets very complicated of course because it is a whole industry making profits from this situation and these people and organisations and offices and officers and publications abound.

And you can read them until your eyes fall out and you still won’t really know what’s going on.  Except that quite obviously there’s a hell of a lot of people doing fine out of this.

Here’s one:  The National Indigenous Australians Agency.  I won’t put the link here because the system will make it open up right here in the middle of my text.

But it  mentions all kinds of things and gives me the impression that there could be communities where housing is not free.  Well I know there are.

And I suppose it could even be that not paying rent could cause the council in such a place to tell the occupiers they’ll have to get out.

I doubt that they’d pay rates anywhere because that’s a tax on the ‘value’ of the land and and that isn’t traded wouldn’t have a value in that way.

But the same thing: if they didn’t pay the rates perhaps they’d be ordered out, kinda ‘sold up’ as we would be.

But in either case, if true, the people ‘ordered out’ find themselves standing on a land they own. That they are said to own. That you and I are banished from.

And right there and then they can start building whatever they like, one assumes, all the way from a wurley to a shed to a shack to a home…  wherever they like.

Leave aside the question of any hassles they may get from their local ‘council’  (a western imposition on their traditional life) or from , more properly you’d assume,  the tribe as a whole in the traditional sense,  for we know nothing of this and don’t much care.

What we know is that the land is ‘theirs’ in a communal sense of the most basic kind: i.e. each and every member of the community can take as they wish.

We don’t have that communal sense any more.  Our nation is ‘ours’ in a communal sense that doesn’t allow of us helping ourselves.

But we assume they still cling the more closely to the original meaning of the word and the original habits of human beings.

So to our mind at least any aboriginal on tribal land always has a ‘home’ on that land whereas we don’t  on our land.

And that’s a root difference of the most important kind.

That’s a boon of the most enormous size.

Now here’s a link to that agency as an example of the agencies that exist.  You’ll see here they claim that aboriginals have influence over 40% of Australia’s land mass.

Well what do you know.  It hasn’t automatically opened up.  I think it will if I make it a link.  I didn’t realise/remember that I must choose to do that.

Well I won’t.  If you are interested to look then cut and paste.




America Today. Leading The Way.

This is the way we are all going.  You’d be keen to deny that.  Not here, not here,  you’d cry.  But look how the whole world is docilely accepting all kinds of covid stupidity.

From any corner of the world now you can see news clips regarding anything at all and  find standing around all over the place people with masks on.  In public places.  In the open air.  Far from everyone else.   I’ve even seen them in the jungle.

The world is mad.   As mad as it was in the witch trials.  As mad is the Aztecs were with their temples for sacrifice.  As mad as Mao’s china and Stalin’s Russia.

One lone voice telling it as it is – Ann Coulter

Plea To Politicians about Ivermectin

Made a plea to a couple of politicians today about Ivermectin.

Just for them to read about it and then do something to make it available to us, the people.

For it is a harmless drug used for treatment of parasite infestations and yet sworn by many , many doctors to be efficient in both prophylaxis and treatment of Covid.

But you can’t get it.

Because it is prescription only.

And the doctors I approached had initially never even heard of it.

They googled it.

And then turned away from it.

I gave one links to a bunch of other Doctors  who were publicly pleading for Doctors everywhere and the authorities, the politicians, the opinion makers, the journalists, anyone and everyone to have a look at their data, their studies, their testimony of their own treatments on their own patients and:

He wouldn’t even look.

Now how good is that?

Here’s an elderly population facing what they’re told is a horrible disease that might even kill them and the chance of life saver that at the very worst would at least be a harmless placebo is denied them!

Denied them with a flick of the wrist.

Denied them to save the trouble of a mouse click and a disinterested couple of minutes screen reading.

How good is that?

What’s that like for a commentary of the state of things today.

Remember Barry Jones? ‘Sleepers Awake’?

Yes, well.  Wake up.

Isn’t it time we all woke up?

Need Any More Proof????

Here’s a beaut page with 17 charts showing the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and masks.

Not here to argue the reasons why.  Not here to argue the science, the theories,  this, that or the other:  just look at the practical fact:  they have not worked and they are not working. They Do Not Work!

So people are suffering even unto dying For Nothing!!!

Would You Like To Be Patronising?

Then patronise Tiffany Poon. She’ll welcome it. You can be a patron of the arts. You can do more in your little way than all the big mouthing pretentious know it all snob types are doing.

Artists are suffering all over the world because of this Covid madness with concerts etc. cancelled and performance venues closed and performances prohibited or restrictions making them unviable.

Tiffany is no exception.

And Tiffany is no slouch. She’s been playing all her life. And she’s always played well. She was a child prodigy and is an asset to us all. An undervalued, ignored, scorned asset in today’s Pharasaic world.

This is the child at work:

She’s a big girl now and she still does it and does it better. That wonderful left hand is even greater.

And she busts her guts trying to help other musicians, devoting time and energy and giving of her own slender income to help them.

On this Patreon site, where we can ‘patronise’ Tiffany by giving and perhaps ‘pledging’ to future give any paltry amounts we care, Tiffany toils endlessly – truly, fair dink – to give everyone extra value, something ‘extra’ for their money….

As though being a patron of the arts and this artist in particular were not enough.

An on Youtube she pours out a constant stream of what she calls ‘vlogs’ – video blogs – or simply videos which record many things her life. The idea being to give us all a glimpse, an understanding of what life is like for a concert pianist.

She gives that to everyone and isn’t that kind of a wonderful thing? I think so. You see nothing else like it. It’s warm and human and true.

She’s a worker. And a talent. And a human. And a prodigy. And struggling.

You can be patronising. You can throw her a few dollars and skite about how good you are if you like, she won’t mind, she’ll thank you.

On patreon here:

And you want to hear some beautifully interpreted classical piano? I think you can’t go past Tiffany.

Tell everyone. I think it is disgraceful that such assets in our world have to struggle to pay the rent, buy food. I do.

The Disgusting, Disgraceful Dowright Dumb Democrats

A post today by Tom Woods demonstrates beautifully one of the reasons why over the last four years I’ve come to see the American Democrats as being beneath contempt.

They’re such two-faced, barefaced, opportunistic, stupid liars. Amongst other things. And this is a relatively mild but still very telling demonstration of just that. The ‘unmild’ demonstration is, of course, the impeachment of Trump which is not dealt with here but which is of course merely a ‘summit’ outcrop of this underlying ‘standard’ modus operandi.

Here’s the relevant extract from Tom’s post:

You may have read the stories about Andrew Cuomo and the nursing homes — apparently far more people died than the state admitted.

(Chris Cillizza at CNN ran this almost hilariously understated headline: “Andrew Cuomo’s Covid-19 performance may have been less stellar than it seemed.”)

In the wake of that revelation, a troll account on Twitter posted this:

“If you see anybody from the Cuomo Administration in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

If you’re sharp, you’ll remember that these are exactly the same words uttered three years ago by Rep. Maxine Waters, except about Trump rather than Cuomo.

Those words were met with yawns back then.

But when those very words are used to refer to the Cuomo administration, well, that’s just not acceptable!

Carl Heastie, speaker of the New York Assembly, responded: “This is appalling and dangerous. Encouraging violence must never be tolerated. Shame on whoever is behind this kind of garbage.”

Other New York assemblymen got snookered by it as well. Thus Kenny Burgos: “We need to stop this behavior towards elected officials and especially their staff. The seige of the Capitol empowered behavior like this and must be stopped at any moment it creeps its head out in any fashion.”

Same with Ken Zebrowski, who wrote, “This is dangerous, reprehensible and has no place in any public discussion. Oh, and spare me the ‘someone else did it too’ excuse. Someone else saying a variation of this doesn’t change the fact that this is seeking to incite violence against a public official and their staff.”

Then Jeffrey Dinowitz: “What’s wrong with you? Threatening violence against duly elected representatives of the people of New York is fascism. The hatred unleashed by Trump and his gang of thugs continues to reverberate throughout the country. Enough is enough.”

Then Jenifer Rajkumar: “This kind of incitement to violence against government leaders must stop. Especially after the recent seige at the U.S. Capitol, we must condemn these types of threats. They endanger our democracy. This is not who we are and we can do better.”

These Tweets are all still up. These geniuses still don’t realize they’ve been tricked into condemning Maxine Waters.

And here’s the link to Tom’s post:

collateral damage

Sunetra Gupta and co-authors have put up a web site compiling authoritative records of collateral damage known and expected from covid interventions. The forecast damage and very probably the existing damage far outweighs any damage the virus may have wrought.

And that’s talking only sickness and death. We care most about sickness and death and when challenged about our ‘over the top’ approach to ‘protecting ourselves’ we are quick to appreciate we don’t want sickness or death and are blindly willing to overlook almost any cost in order to do it. Money doesn’t matter, we say. We think. We like to think.

And we think the intervention ‘costs’ are ‘mere’ monetary costs – abstract ‘economic’ costs, perhaps a little heartbreak here and there with a failed business. Ah, too bad, we say, but better that than anyone gets sick or dies.

But the fact is the collateral damage measured in sick and dead far exceeds, far exceeds any covid cost. And that’s looking at current much disputed and certainly much exaggerated figures. No matter. No matter how exaggerated the covid figures they still don’t match the figures for collateral damage written up in various places and many compiled on the Sunetra Gupta site:

Not much of a title is it? You’d never think to look there. ‘’. Not a mention of Covid. Or SARS. Or even ‘damage’. Not exactly catchy. Or memorable.

But they are not thrill seeking sensationalists. Lurid journalists; click bait specialists.

They are serious sober scientists careful to print only that which they can believe is true and reliable and with a concern for their own reputations now and into the future.

Unlike bandwagonriders and followers of fashion and bee in the bonnet maniacs they are not printing facts about a situation they want to be true. They are printing facts they find to be regrettably true about the situation. Regrettable, awful, but true. And properly the concern of every person on the planet.
