Think or Sink.
Out with bad thinking,
with dangerous false teachings,
like political correctness.
In with good thinking, facts and logic.
I want to start by going back to 2006. I'm introducing a college ethics class. "I can't imagine a more important time than now to be exploring ethics, with all the different messages coming at us." A hand goes up. "So what," says the student, "All opinions are equal." It turns out that my students, all 43 of them, agree. According to them, there is no right or wrong.
I'll get to more about that class.
I'm going to skip talking about what's at the forefront for most people these days - the Corona virus - what I've heard, what I believe. My sense is that there's enough talk about this. My understanding, in short: we are being massively manipulated by the same forces that want Trump gone. But I don't have any desire to continue with that. It feels like entering a swamp - that if I go further, I risk being stuck for a long time. And I'll never get to something where I feel I can make a much bigger contribution. I will, at the end, give the most successful treatment protocol I've come across.
In the meantime, first,
I want to let you know what I've been thinking about over the past months. And then, I'll get back to the college ethics class I was introducing in 2006.
As usual for me, the biggest question has been: What's the best thing I can do? What's the best use of my time?
There's one thing I haven't seen anyone else really focus on. Quite a number of people are focussing on political correctness, Islam, Marxism/Communism/socialism, infiltration, Israel, anti-Semitism, climate alarmism, media manipulation.
But I don't know of anyone else focussing on BAD THINKING as ESSENTIAL to all the destructive forces around us.
That brings me back to 2006. That was the year I became aware of Islam and the threat posed by political correctness. I was also hit by a sea change in my students. I had been teaching, university and college level, for 23 years. I had never before faced a class of students, all adamantly convinced that all opinions are equal.
I wrote about it at the time. It's one of the first articles I posted online: All Opinions Are Equal - Stupid Opinion Number One.
I continued to think, write and also speak about the increasing taboo on thinking. I wrote a book, Think or Sink. I'm coming back to this concern with bad thinking now - but there are 2 major changes. Before, I saw the taboo on thinking as dangerous. Now I see it as something much more, as ESSENTIAL to the forces against human rights, against freedom of thought and speech. In other words, if we knock out bad thinking (which is not likely to happen easily) the forces against us are dealt a death blow. We think, they sink. On the other hand, if we don't think, we're sunk.
The second major change is that, before,
I was concerned with raising awareness. Now the goal is much greater, to help create a movement - like the anti-slavery movement and the votes-for-women movement. Awareness isn't enough. We need engagement - group engagement.
And with that, here is a link to a short video that starts with my experience with my ethics class, and moves to the present:
PPS. And of course, may you, may all of us, be healthy, stay healthy, and may we also be well in all other ways.
Of course take every suggested precaution, starting with social distance and frequent hand washing when called for (not at home!).
PPPS. And should you or anyone you know come down with the virus, here is the most successful treatment protocol I have come across. WE ALL SHOULD KNOW THIS. This should be HEADLINE NEWS. EASY EFFECTIVE CHEAP SUCCESS AGAINST THE CORONA VIRUS. Rudy Guliani, former New York mayor, interviews the doctor who has by how treated 699 patients with ZERO deaths, ZERO intubations, and only 4 people admitted to hospital (and even these people not dangerously ill). The interview gives his COMPLETE CHEAP PROTOCOL (INCLUDED BELOW). No need for hospital stays. No need to destroy the economy. No death or longterm health damage. In other words, why shut the country down for what can be so well and effectively treated? We know why. Someone is out to hurt the West, our well-being and our freedoms.
