talent.

 

 

look up the full definition of ideology (greek: form+pattern … logos)

the following is from LISTEN, LIBERAL by Thomas Frank

 

 

THE PATHOLOGIES OF PROFESSIONALISM

Having people of talent run the vast federal apparatus is clearly a desirable thing. The EPA and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission ought to be under the direction of people who know what they’re doing, as surely as qualified engineers should design our bridges and historians should be the ones who teach history.

But what are we to make of our modern-day technocracy, a meritocracy of failure in which ineffectual people rise to the top and entire professions (accountants, real-estate agents appraisers, etc.) are roiled by corruption scandals?

The answer is that the professional ideology brings with it certain predictable, recurring weakness. The first of these pitfalls of professionalism is that the people with the highest status aren’t necessarily creative or original thinkers. Although the professions are thought to represent the pinnacle of human brilliance, what they are actually brilliant at is defending and applying a given philosophy. In DISCIPLINED MINDS, an important description of the work-life of professionals, the physicist Jeff Schmidt tells us that “ideological discipline is the master key to the professionals.” Despite the favorite Sixties slogan, professionals do not question authority; their job is to apply it. This is the very nature of their work and the object of their training, according to Schmidt; who “implement their employers’ attitudes” and carefully internalize the reigning doctrine of their discipline, whatever this happens to be.

In addition, the professions are structured to shield insiders from accountability. This is what defines the category: professionals do not have to listen …

____

this is outstanding and essentially why we share. and we have listed over and over where the liberal profs just seem to be an insulated group wrapped in their own ideology. we have said … of the hierarchy notables … and shown time and time again, in detail,

they cannot see the trees for the forest.

 

these are of the mindset that they are “god of the universe” in that their way is the right way because… it seems ethical. it seems ethical. from within their cubicle of repair.

but … it lacks in what?

truth. the true nature of the facts. and what are these facts? well, one could start by saying, look in the mirror, dude, who is standing behind you?

    This is the pattern in countries where Muslim populations are allowed to grow disproportionally large. Once they feel secure in their numbers, the Islamist attitude changes from what is was, grows more aggressive and assertive, more demanding from when they were but a small minority. The biggest sociopolitical fallacy out there, the biggest mistake made, is to treat Islam as a simple religion rather than a political ideology. European nations routinely ban ideological and political groups that for instance advocate for segregation, Fascism, racism, etc., but have no problem with Islam and all the abhorrent beliefs within it, based on defining it as simply a religion. It is so much more.

    ireland has its irish … italy has its italians … greece has its greeks … israel has its jews …

    salkin, hillary is backpedaling … from the bigger picture within her liberal state. she wants it both ways. what happened to lot’s wife?

    she will not take the necessary stand for AMERICA that will save the citizens of israel in the process. the islamic menace increases, which engages sharia law, unjust law, dishonesty and malpractice … as complete and utter devotion to prophet islam gets priority, no matter what deals the obi admin wants people to believe. it increases right along with its anti-israel sentiment … which is orchestrating its hymns in various clubs and cults in university style settings all over the place. so … put a “jew” in the seat of the white house. get garland ready for next term. this will say much about the jewish paradox, and it does not require all that money being given to israel or other nations (as this does irk many).

    the growing populace are being duped by pc ideology at the hands of the liberal messiahs. douse them with oil and let their tenets be revealed for what they are. all this sneaky bi-partisansip is wearisome.

        people use religious titles to APPEAR holy, righteous … ecumenical (again, ugh) … tolerant and even humble and kind but … their POLITICS, ever ingrained in their psychology dominates the sphere in a field of sense or reason. never underestimate their power and influence and never, never NEVER think the vatican is in any way logical or lamenting … they operate for one reason only: power … of … institution: theirs. this is their catholic (universal) ideology and it takes many forms … to achieve its mission.

        do not follow the press into total destruction … there are underground tunnels in places you cannot even IMAGINE 😦

        get off the sidewalk and walk the terrain of your forefathers (fore-skin) and you will know its …………………………………………..

    atheists and liberalist (as we often call them) DO NOT UNDERSTAND RELIGION … and do not understand caliphate religious. they are often the “jew” of the NT (we explained this in previous in SPIR). they are the policy masters … wielding weapons without any real knowledge of these.

    like watching a toddler swinging about a butcher’s knife

    any religious wedded to prophet religion will seek out these liberal lads and use them for power gain. AND use the land of the free because … they know they can work their magic into the minds of these … and through these they can get to the youth, and when your government is made up of a bunch of academy liberals … huh, that land of the free becomes the land of needs.

      where are the questions and answers to this man’s history of islamic ties? we posted on this …

      LIBERALISTS, what say you?

      are you in accord with khan’s bed fellows?

      ______

      why is it okay for khan to align with extreme opinion and policy but it’s not okay for trump? this new muslim mayer is not going to get off the hook on this. starting now, he is going to face the hardest scrutiny he has ever faced in his entire life … when the terrorists start bombing and slicing and shooting, this mayor is going to be in the thick of it, and no coincidence that he has been chosen to deal with what is coming for the UK …

      it’s coming. khan, when you play with fire to get yourself elected … you get burned by the embers still spreading.

    many of these abusers go into these fields to have access to what their savage mind desires. priests in abbeys … bishops …

    control, power … often broken or poverty stricken homes, ailing, suffering … sensitive, vulnerable and the laws in areas where there is extreme poverty and improper and savage view of women? even a view that poverty stricken women and children, even young men … are somehow of less importance in society

    gee, where have we seen this attitude in the states? hmm, liberal left? a lot of crit but what are you doing about the abuses while seated in your professional seats, seats with lots of power and influence that often carry the titles SCHOLAR AND EXPERT … ?

    not so funny how the mainstream media promotes ABORTION-ABORTION-ABORTION as if this will solve most of the problems of the world … but where in their expert opinions do we see getting to the root of the reason for so many impregnated—of all ages? heck, some of these professionals are responsible for the epidemic …

    of abortion because their industry offers freedom of ……. without consequence. isn’t that right, guys?

      https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/2sv1tu/were_martin_luther_king_jrs_extramarital_affairs/

      Well the consensus is that they in fact did happen. In addition to the FBI wiretaps, letters, and threats. Reverend Ralph David Abernathy, MLK’s best friend and #2 in the Southern Christian Leadership Council wrote his biography in 1989 And the Walls Came Tumbling Down and does write that MLK had extramarital affairs:

      “Much has been written in recent years about my friend’s weakness for women. Had others not dealt with the matter in such detail, I might have avoided any commentary. Unfortunately, some of these commentators have told only the bare facts without suggesting the reasons why Martin might have indulged in such behavior. They have also left a false impression about the range of his activities. Martin and I were away more often than we were at home; and while this was no excuse for extramarital relations, it was a reason. Some men are better able to bear such deprivations than others, though all of us in SCLC headquarters had our weak moments. We all understood and believed in the biblical prohibition against sex outside of marriage. It was just that he had a particularly difficult time with that temptation.”

      ______

      some run to snopes to get their info but as we learned recently in the matter of FBK and other social sites … there is agenda.

      my point here is not to judge adult consensual sex as it is really not my business. I am merely pointing out standards … and with hilary and bill on the ballot for the presidential seat once again, will hilary finish what the 2 started? shutting down the ability to come clean on many acts that cause some to lose jobs while others are pedestaled? reestablishing that establishment now under the microscope? and at what point do women and men become more interested in the value of relationship? and how a man treats a woman? acting responsibly. self-control … owning up to misbehavior and malpractice, recklessness and even, ignorance? one might ask how many more children michael luther king fathered that did not get to go to college and move into profitable seats. hiding important facts when it comes to your hero says a lot about you. you as a voter.

      and one should not be criticizing pastors and politicians engaging ‘adultery’ when your hero was using … using prostitutes to satisfy himself—his desires. risky business, i’d say … and the spread of disease …

      what say you?

    I read another article on this but was waiting to hear what people had to say as I am not military or cadet school personality.

    comment:

    hotbabyboomer • an hour ago
    The hijab is not a requirement for the Muslim woman. It is a show of faith. The cross is not a requirement of Christianity but many choose to wear a cross. The star of David is also a show of faith and not a requirement to wear. It is nice she wants to be identified as a Muslim but she is at a school and her faith is not central to her education nor a place to make a religious statement. As a side note..The Queen of Jordan does not wear a hijab and not a requirement in Jordan.

    ___________

    it does seem to me more and more that in america and other places the muslim wants people to know she is muslim. and this would be true of priests and bishops, cardinals, popes … they want people to CREDIT them for their religious affiliation. not sure why … why do some religious desire people to know their religious affiliation while in public? are we to treat these differently?

    • opheliart permalink

      it reminds me somewhat of the gay pride parades. what do you think would happen if heterosexuals held a straight pride parade, how would residents like their tax dollars going toward that special treatment (PUBLIC law enforcement is often needed and … streets are closed off … )?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Ghazali

    Incoherence of the Philosophers[edit]
    His 11th century book titled The Incoherence of the Philosophers marks a major turn in Islamic epistemology. The encounter with skepticism led al-Ghazali to embrace a form of theological occasionalism, or the belief that all causal events and interactions are not the product of material conjunctions but rather the immediate and present Will of God.

    • opheliart permalink

      all CASUAL events and interactions … are the immediate and present will of God? maybe religious god of islam but …

      not SPIRIT of the Living God … because SPIRIT cannot be contained within man without conjecture of the heart. al-ghazali assumes his position is real in the Light on Love when in fact it is a manmade article. if his god is a man then he is a god… and can say anything he wants, anything … like:

      the woman must be under man and he can beat her if she does not do what he wants her to do. a man can marry a nine-year-old and have sex with her at age ten. a brown man pees purple oil but a yellow one pees green oil. a goat can sing a lullaby in spanish and a cat can sit on a rubber ball.

      religious caught up in … itself.

      • opheliart permalink

        and did casual god say: wear the veil to stand out among your peers?

        😀

        the hijab reminds me of the roman catholics shaving the tops of their heads thinking it will bring them closer to god.

    http://www.abc6.com/story/31941534/new-details-suspects-sister-describes-days-leading-up-to-deadly-attack

    a little follow up … “His sister says Darosa took his 5-year-old daughter to her soccer game on Myrick street just before the stabbing spree. She describes his behavior as manic – he was fine one minute, but crazy the next.”

    and he drove his five year old daughter to soccer practice and left … ?

    he was manic … fine ONE MINUTE then CRAZY the next and he was driving a child?

    do doctors advise anything for family members? like … no driving, don’t leave children alone with a person having suicidal thoughts … or manic thoughts? don’t leave individual alone … as clearly he is engaged in a struggle with something that is taking over his sense … his reason … his ability to filter out reckless and dangerous thoughts. when someone is hearing voices telling it to do bad things, you can almost guess what will follow and EVIL desires destruction. that is its work. undermining, manipulating, deceiving … and death of innocence. because innocence is evil’s greatest enemy. honesty is evil’s greatest enemy. the failure of the hospital and family members involved (knowing) is HUGE. when do the people learn? what are the PROFESSIONALS if they cannot make greater effort to stop what they should know by now … they should have known …

    BUT DID THEY CARE?

    • opheliart permalink

      when a person starts hearing voices telling him to do bad, or if he hears voices that lead him into ideology/theology/philosophy with title that can persuade and seduce others … (example: god told me to …) causing harm to others (through use of power and influence, title, job assignment like PEACEKEEPERS … access to the INNOCENT, THE VULNERABLE … weaker, smaller, quieter, poor, afraid … or overly trusting … ) … this is evil doing its work.

      there is SPIRIT, folks, both evil and good. the man was hearing voices! do not assume this is not real. IT IS REAL! how much more do you need to see and experience to know what is real? too many professionals, so-called experts brush it off as “ah, just another mentally ill person” … “how many was that today?”

      off you go …. back to your wife and children

      what insanity is this? who-what is the insane in these situations?

      • opheliart permalink

        most mental health professionals haven’t a clue on spiritual warfare … they rely on formula and drugs. they often play right into the hands of the enemy. and pastors/priests aren’t much better. some don’t even believe evil spirit exists. they are just glorified vocationalists.

        __________

        the Writings were not meant for the masses because these (not where the rcc misinterpreted and wrote incorrectly) were written in a language for the GNOSTIC. it is the Language of the Spirit. it is a council on friend and foe (jump! jump! your god will save you! no, away from me, you of darkness—you cannot have me and you will not take our youth!) … PROPHESY … the teaching is understanding what is. the true from the false … knowing them by their fruits … coming into understanding of how man was formed and where he needs to move for the peaceable kingdom. denying SPIRIT, good or evil, is an ignorant start.
        THE BISHOP IN THE NEW T IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE TODAY IN RELIGIOUS TITLE. THIS IS MEANT FOR AN ARTISTRY BEYOND THESE CREEDS AND CREDENTIALS … but
        first, ascending heart to mind to be able to love neighbor as self. receive in this, you will not do harm to yourself and others (chastising in love is not doing harm)

        but the rcc and others used the Writings incorrectly and made itself AUTHORITY and the Writings had to go out to the people for those called to acquiesce in {this} for the purpose of Light.

        there is a war going on that people witness every day, often experience … but have little understanding in. why … where … how.

  12. opheliart permalink

    do atheists now blame christians for derosa’s behavior? because he mentioned the devil? this is foolishness, my friends … do not permit this to continue because it solves nothing! what derosa heard was not a fantasy … it was attacking to over realm and disease … likely for years. he had children and this made a difference …. for a time, but … whatever he was feeding in, using, exposed to … and this can be anything from horror flicks with much death and destruction to tainted water. if he was becoming increasingly unhealthy from poor feeding … he becomes more and more vulnerable and cannot fight the attacks. he needed proper help … but what understands SPIRITUAL WARFARE?

    • opheliart permalink

      YOU WILL LOSE MORE AND MORE YOUTH and many will die if you continue as you are about these and other matters. and who can trust church or state to do what’s needed? they are in bed with each other—pleasuring itself. selfish … egomaniacal … self-serving institutional malaise

  13. opheliart permalink

    SPIRREALISM ART

    if I painted what was attacking derosa, you people would have nightmares beyond your wildest dreams, but I do not acquiesce in those dark places. I paint for LIFE, not Death and destruction, not even destruction of religion because … as much as I would like certain mind-numbing practices to fade … to pull the rug (mat) out from under people is using force and force is … generally speaking … not a GOOD thing, and I am not of that force. and is why I wait, sometimes impatiently, while these things go down. and sadly, take many with them.

    IT WILL GET WORSE. and what do you have in place to combat these attacks? drugs, drugs and more drugs? denial, denial and more denial? deals, deals and more deals … with dishonesty and the disillusioned?

    priests and pastors you are called to MORE! get out of those party seats and strip off those dress robes! you need educating. tell your superiors to take a hike … they could use the exercise and please stop giving them your LIFEblood! you owe them nothing!

    but you are in debt. how will you pay off this debt? many lives are dependent on your coherence … your awareness. do you not hear THIS call?
