ElectroPolitical Unified Theory

Perhaps this Miner for Truth and Delusion has been on an electronics theory binge too long. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but an ElectroPolitical Unified Theory is having birth pangs in my mind. All the voices are talking about it.

Let’s begin with the basics. An Indian sees an Eagle over a Rock. Gotcha, taught you Ohms Law while you weren’t looking.

The Rock is Resistance AKA Impedance. As the alias implies, it impedes every fucking thing. Mr. Impedance, “We ain’t never done it that way before. I don’t like it! I don’t like it one damn bit.” Y’all know him. He’s mostly neutral. It don’t matter what the change is, Mr Impedance don’t want nuttin to do with it, no fucking way!

Electromagnetic theory is, and I theorize also ElectroPolitical Unified Theory, a troika. Mr. R has co conspirators. Sounding more plausible all the time.

Meet Mr. L, AKA Inductance. Mr. L’s goal is to Impede any change at all. He’s only happy when nothing is changing, nothing. Mr. R is happy with a fixed level of Impedance. But, the more you try to change things, the stronger Mr. L kicks and screams. Those thousands of volts sparking the plugs in your car? That’s Mr. L screaming because you took his 12 volts away from him. For realz.

If you’re not also seeing ElectroPolitical Unified Theory implications, bless your heart.

The Universe must balance. And of course the third member of the troika ensures that balance is possible. Mr. C AKA Capacitance loves change and tries to Impede stagnation. The faster shit be changing, the happier Mr. C is.

Now you realize why nothing is being done. Mr. C and Mr. L are in a tug of war between change and stagnation. Mr. R don’t care what the rest are fighting about. He Impedes on general principle.

What does actually get done is due to parasites. Nothing is ideal. There’s some cross breeding going on. Mr. L has a little of Mr.C and Mister R inside. Under the right change frequencies, he will let a change slip by. Mr C will decide things are changing to damn fast. Even Mr. R will lean one way or another.

The possibilities of a stable and functional system exist. It works in the Electro part. Why not Political?

Feedback! Electronics work because there is negative feedback, a governor, on the system. Who among my musician friends love that positive feedback squeal from a mic pointed badly. No one.

Yet our political and economic systems are designed to be Win -Win. Positive feedback. Even when it appears to be working, a butterfly fart can drive it into unstable oscillations.

Pan-Theistic Trans-Dimensional Quantum Solipsism

It’s not as bad as it looks. It’s a extension of Rene Des Cartes philosophical breakthrough.

I think therefore, I am. … I think. I also think I am. The question is do you?

Not do you think, but do you exist outside my mind. It’s unprovable!

Also unprovable is whether I exist or am nothing more than a character someone else thinks of. A delusion as such.

It’s a conundrum for a Miner for Truth and Delusion. Is it all delusion?

I’m hoping I’m someone’s delusion because otherwise my mind is twisted enough to invent our current leaders? and policies?

More to follow.

If you become disoriented, remember, keep your right hand on the left hand rail, your left hand on the left hand rail, and both hands on your wrists. … No smoking, eating, drinking, or snorting!

Rescue of the Danish Jews

World War II was a horrible time for any group Hitler didn’t like. Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah Witnesses, Catholics, artists, musicians, the disabled, any groups Hitler considered sub-human were shipped off to be exterminated or worked as slave laborers until they died.

That’s a tragedy but worse was the way the people in occupied countries almost gleefully collaborated to assist the Nazis in rounding up and assisting in the extermination these sub-humans for the Master Race. French Gendarmes rounded up people for the Gestapo, Slavs and Poles stoked the ovens of the crematoria. Despicable and deplorable actions, but, what the hell, they were only Jews, Gypsies, … so who cares. It’s the kind of thinking demonizing a group of people leads to. That kind of thinking is still going on today. Just ask Drumpf or his supporters. They’re ready to start a new Holocaust.

But one country bucked the Nazi thinking, little Denmark. 99% of the Jewish citizens avoided being shipped to their deaths. 73 years ago today, Hans Hedtoft, chairman of the Danish Social Democrat party, found out the Nazis intended to round up the Jews in Denmark. all 7,800 of them on October 1, 1943. It was not to be. So sorry Hitler.

On September 28, Hedtoft put the word out and the Danes went to work warning and hiding every Jew they could find. Rabbis warned their congregations. Civil servants, taxi drivers, Boy Scouts, and others took to the streets with phone books to warn their Jewish countrymen to go into hiding.

It worked. The Nazis had cattle cars staged and ready. The arrests were scheduled for the eve of the Jewish New Year, assuming Jews would be home with their Families. Squads of SS hit the streets, and came back mostly empty handed.  Only 464 Danish Jews were arrested and sent to a concentration camp.

Even those avoided the death camps. The Danish government put pressure on the Nazis. The Danes were housed in a transit camp, not sent to death camps. They even managed to send food and medical packages to the Danish prisoners. Only 51 Danish Jews died, of disease, while in Nazi captivity.

What of the rest of the Danish Jews? Hiding wouldn’t work for long. They needed to escape to another country. The problem is others countries, including the US, didn’t want to accept Jewish refugees. (Sounds like the situation today, doesn’t it. ‘We don’t want no damn refugees.’)

That’s where a nuclear physicist, and a Hollyweird starlet enter our story. Neutral Sweden was the logical place to send all the Jews in hiding. But Sweden wasn’t accepting Jews either. Greta Garbo managed to get Nils Bohr an audience with the Swedish king. Bohr managed to get the king to accept the Danish Jews on October 3rd.

That started a massive smuggling operation of boats of all kinds transporting 7,900 Jews and non-Jewish spouses to safety in Sweden.

99% of Danish Jews survived the Holocaust. This happened because Danes didn’t think of Danish Jews as just those damn Jews. They considered them fellow Danish citizens deserving of protection from the Nazis.

We need to learn from the example of the Danes and consider refugees as fellow Humans and quit pigeonholing them into demonized categories.

Hello world!

Welcome to Fifty-Fifty. “I figure the odds be fifty-fifty, I might just have something to say.” ~ Frank Zappa.

Y’all can make up your own minds. There is no theme, just random musings of the voices in my head.

But, your are likely to find comments on rights for all beings, rants against the fascist police state, the Banksters and such.

Be on the look out for a Bankster post. I’m a fixin to use the Bible and set the TeaBaglicans and the Christian[don’t think so] Bigot Churches on the Banksters. Won’t that be fun?
