It's in Review of a few Views Thing

Dear America,

"After centuries of extensive research, biologists admit that they still don't have any good explanation for how brains produce consciousness.  Physicists admit that they don't know what caused the Big Bang, or how to reconcile quantum mechanics with the theory of general relativity,"  (just part of page 252, of the book this girl is struggling to read, Sapiens... by Yuval Noah Harari)
as it turns out, as the pages have turned, I have lost count on the number of times the words 'we don't know,' or some variation thereof, have surfaced.

AND, as it may turn out, there is a God, Yuval;  God, that very THING who thought about making a universe and then some.  But whatever, let's agree to disagree and move on dot org.

Thing is, Yuval is just a guy; and the absolute truth is, he is limited just as all the rest of us are limited, as  people, you know -- to know everything.   Newsflash:  We will never have all the answers to all the questions of all the curiosities and imaginations and wondering our human consciousness produces, nor to all the problems we Sapiens face on planet earth.   That's what makes life so fun, right?

But what has become quite striking in the last few weeks -- in correlation to just yesterday's blog -- is the number of times climate change of thousands of years ago is referenced; it's as if the current climate and conversation on climate change has totally forgotten, if not blatantly dismissed and erased from memory, all of the periods of climate change (warm and cold) that has come before us.  And why?  To satisfy an agenda, pure and simple.  

Among this and other man-made myths, Yuval's book is rooted in bias, growing stronger and stronger as the pages turn.

And the irony is hard to ignore, given his in-depth study, the plethora of imagined absolutes in which mankind have fallen to, substantiating his history of humankind and all the while declaring just how much our Homo Sapien ignorance is based upon myth, imagined by the very limitations of our own small minds (and much smaller than our predecessors, mind you).    But I will keep reading your propaganda anyway, only another hundred pages or so to go.

This is interesting, from the chapter suitably titled The Flood --  "[A]t first, glaciers blocked the way from Alaska to the rest of America...around 12,000 BC global warming melted the ice and opened an easier passage."

And yet, according to mainstream media and leftists and elitists today, climate change is a direct result from the horrors of mankind TODAY, and from just yesterday, and the day before that, and forewarn that we have only twelve years to live before we meet our demise.  

While just before the chapter comes to a close, Yuval adds this observation:  "Don't believe tree-huggers who claim that our ancestors lived in harmony with nature.  Long before the Industrial Revolution, Homo Sapiens held the record among all organisms for driving the most plant and animal species to their extinctions.  We have the dubious distinction of being the deadliest species in the annals of biology."

The contradictions that all of us current day Sapiens are surrounded with, leveled by hypocrites, are weighing on me.  

I do applaud Yuval's efforts to effect change, I do.  He sees areas where humans can be better humans, indeed.  So true, so true.  I choose to buy cage free eggs; I love free range chicken and prefer to purchase Open Nature brand beef from my local Vons, alongside a bushel of organic kale that my family eats like it is candy.

Yuval, personally, tells us that he avoids association with the meat and dairy and egg industries, and as a matter of record, and what, quite possibly, precipitated his life's mission, he's hellbent on not getting "bogged down with mundane things," you know, things centered around money, career or mortgages (like most of us little people); he wants to tackle things falling under the uber-caption of what is commonly called the big picture -- because clearly, Yuval feels well equipped to educate us on such.  All of this precious incite, by the way, to the man, Yuval,  is found openly and purposely, in Sapien's final pages, as if he, himself, is an open book.  (yes, I jumped ahead to the Q&A at the back.  shoot me)

Yuval is anti-capitalist, anti-American, and anti-carnivore, to name a few.  

What Yuval is missing, among probably a few things, is a true understanding of what made America truly different (yet not perfect) from the start.  America was the exception, separated and standing alone from all other forms of government found round the world to date (you need to refresh your context page, Yuval).   We the People had more say, more control, more independence, more freedom to create a life of hard work and happiness than at any other time in the history of humankind.

Hence, the creation of a middle class heard round the world, and growing; hence, the creation of more millionaire millennials than ever before; hence, the movement of more women in business for themselves than at any other time in history.  

Hey, and just this week, my latest issue of Shape includes a spread titled, "WOMEN RUN THE WORLD."  Yes; it is nice to be recognized.  Finally. teehee

And yet, as expected, the list highlights 15 women (of which three work together, being founders of Her Campus Media, a leading college marketing and media firm) seems a wee bit one sided, to say the least.  Four out of the fifteen happen to be actors turned advocates of one thing or another; while the remaining eight are found on the cutting edge of a mission of their own, from fighting hunger to fighting for equality in fields of sport, investment, medicine and wellness.   Not sure if any of these fifteen movers and shakers happen to vote conservative, it doesn't appear so (but that could be a totally invalid assumption, right); be that as it may, the article prompted me to do a quick search on the stats of women in business today -- since everything evolves, and all.

And the latest stats are quite encouraging.  Four out of ten businesses are owned by someone who calls herself a female; this reveals a growth of 58% since 2007, generating 3.1 Trillion in revenue.  

And even more interesting to me is the happiness factor.  On a scale of 1 to 10, those women considered to be in the Boomer category (+50) are found to be 69%  at an 8 or higher;  millenials  are found to be 68% happy, being of an 8 or higher;  and generation x (those 40-49), are at a whopping 73% happy, measuring on the scale at an 8 or higher.   Stats courtesy of Guidant Financial. xx  

Now is this information reflected and discussed anywhere other than on this website?  Where is the media and the headlines?  Is there a reason that this solid majority of happy women are being overlooked, only to be outnumbered by the mass hashtags of the moment, like #metoo?  Or the popular narrative of the day... that the white man sucks, bigly.

And this just in --  heterosexuality is just not working.
thank you, Marcie Bianco; are you and Yuval in cahoots with one another?

um.  Without the heterosexual homo sapiens doing their thing, there are no sapiens.  Um "compulsory heterosexuality?"  Being a girl attracted to men all my life, how can you dismiss the majority of women in this country, and reduce our life, our natural inclinations and choices in lifestyle, to something equal to oppression, smacked with unhappiness, and a host of other woes? How intolerant and ignorant of you.
Patriarchy is at its most potent when oppression doesn’t feel like oppression, or when it is packaged in terms of biology, religion or basic social needs like security comfort, acceptance and success. Heterosexuality offers women all these things as selling points to their consensual subjection.

I'm all in for women -- of all walks of life; but I sure am sick and tired of feminists speaking for me.

anywho,  what a view, what a view.

as the world turns into a mosh pit echoing the wrongs, the inequalities, the inequities, the injustices, of the whole of mankind against the plants and animals, of male over female, maybe the lesson falls back to the essential liberties of the individual.

America is rooted in  individual rights and duties; our prosperity and societal order requires each of us to find our way, be self-reliant, and be responsible for our own sound, principled and decent self-government.   This is the very foundation that gives empowerment to people, all people, to speak, advocate, promote, and write whatever they wish.

From Benjamin Franklin, in a snippet from The Way to Wealth:  "But without industry we must likewise be steady, settled, and careful, and oversee our own affairs with our own eyes, and not trust too much to others...Trusting too much to others' care is the ruin for many; for In the affairs of this world men are saved, not by faith, but by the want of it;...

oooh this girl loves a real, learned man...

Make it a Good Day, G
