Philosophy is nothing if not explicit. Plato represents Socrates in various debates with various characters. Politics is practical philosophy. And what is the fundamental philosophy of the genus Homo? Curiosity, associated with imperial inquisitiveness, and abrasive intelligence.
In turn the later have brought human supremacy, and a subsequent optimization of the pursuit of happiness (imposed by the USA Constitution, aping Aristotle).
The superiority of the present civilization is a direct consequence from the preceding, this imperial spirituality, and it rests on free speech (First Amendment of the USA Constitution).
No free speech means that tyranny is free to rule. It is pretty clear that the so called “representative democracy” is a form of tyranny. So it would make sense that free speech would be curtailed by tyrants, as doing so will encourage tyranny.
HONNI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE:
[Logically challenged French judges, seeing this, apparently deduced that Taubira used to be the ape on the left, and condemn this inner revelation, as somebody’s else racism; the logic of fools knows no bounds.]
In France, “justice” condemns sexual mutilation of girls. if one of the politically correct color, (Contrarily to Britain, where it is tolerated as “multiculturalism). Yet the punishments have been light. Not so for calling attention to Taubira’s “family” (in the scientific sense, see below).
Some will say I exaggerate, and calling Hollande Le Grotesque and his ilk “tyrants” show an inordinate lack of measure unbecoming a philosopher. However, I know history. In France the tyrant Napoleon is front and center: he has his special resting place below the magnificent gold dome of the Invalides (erected by the Tyrant Louis XIV). I recommend to extract him, and throw the debris down the Rhine, the rough center of his exactions.
Napoleon and Louis XIV were disasters for Europe, killing millions, making million more fleeing for their lives, all the way to Capetown and the New Paltz (New York state). But don’t tell that to the average French practicing their idolatry.
On December 27, 1594, Jean Chastel attacked the king Henri IV, wounding his lip. Chastel, 19 year old, of good bourgeois birth, was drawn and quartered within two days. However, a few month later, Jean Boucher, Cure’ de Saint Benoit, doctor at the Sorbonne, and rector of the University of Paris, published an “Apologie” of the would-be assassin, where he commanded his act, and invited another attempt on the king’s life.
Freedom of speech in France was thus greater, in some ways, back in the Sixteenth Century. And the tyrants, less tyrannical. A really paradoxical observation.
In a country such as France, right now, a few guys without much intelligence, but all the levers of power, are taking a succession of idiotic decisions, and they do this by behaving as if they were great princesses and princes of the Middle Ages, endowed with an aura of sanctity. The truth? Well, it’s in their genes. Apes (or more exactly Hominids, see below) are just glorified baboons.
The Eighteenth Century biologist Buffon thought baboons were too obscene to describe faithfully.
Such is the inheritance, not to say the truth, that French politicians want to hide the most.
A woman was condemned to nine months in jail in France for the preceding picture and attending commentary.
The woman is an extreme right blonde bimbo, not really my cup of tea: at least once, an extreme right commando tried to kill me, with an Improvised Explosive Device, so I cannot be accused of having a right wing bias! But that’s beside my point, which is free speech, and even more so, free thought.
If someone says something idiotic, it ought to be condemned verbally (and I have advocated Truth as the fourth branch of government). But only tyrants send people to jail for suggestions of a non criminal nature. I fail to see what is criminal about suggesting that an ape such as me, is, actually, an ape. Now, of course, hard core Islamists and Catholics, Calvin, or Saint Louis, would believe that’s a crime. Apparently French judges also go ape about the concept.
One thing about the picture above, that will escape no doubt escape idiots, at first sight. This is a juxtaposition of pictures. One shows a young gorilla at 18 months. The other picture shows the French “Guard Of The Seals”, the Justice Minister (equivalent to Holder), a woman called Taubira, native of French Guyanna.
Let’s cut the crap: she is basically the one who decides to send people to jail, or not, as in Russia.
The seal she guards is apparently most importantly is that of imbecility. She could not hide a large monkey grin after the verdict was announced.
And what was the deed that was punished? The fact that French judges, and the French government decided to build a logic between the two pictures. They actually made an implication, deducing that the picture on the left was supposed to represent Taubira at 18 months.
In other words, those fools are the ones who admitted publicly that, when they see an 18 month old gorilla, they think about Taubira, now. In other words, they are admitting publicly that they are themselves racist scums, and biologically confused. So they send somebody else to jail, in their frustration.
We know what happened to free speech in Putin’s Russia: if women gather in a cathedral to sing a prayer to the Virgin Mary to rid Russia of Putin, they are condemned to jail (for racist insults against the church, basically).
What’s the problem with Putin? The West. Putin is aping what he sees being done in the West.
Or is it the other way around? Systems of thought are obdurate, and have a life of their own. What we see above is that the ferocity of the states is augmenting: USA goons are spying all over, and lurk within your computers. Mr. Xi will send you to jail if you invoke certain events that never happened in a certain place. Now France is showing clear signs of losing its mind.
Complete with censoring comedians (without any judicial decisions). The problem there is that the censoring Prime Minister is then supposed to steer the country just so. After demonstrating he is an obviously tyrannical little fool.
Systems of thought have a life of their own, for the worst, but also for the best.
After the Barbarians fought Rome for a millennium, they sort of won. And what did they do? They aped Rome. The principle of the Republic had won them over.
The Barbarians (Ostrogoths in Italia, Burgonds and Wisigoths in Gallia, etc.) reactivated much of the Republican ideals after say 500 CE, as the “Christian Republic” (from historical ignorance, and bias, the idea of Christian Republic is often attributed to Calvin, Locke, Rousseau; in truth it was partly enacted by the time of the Church Founding Fathers, by 400 CE. And led to a mess, because the political correctness that characterized Christianism, by groveling to the strong, was incapable of effective governance).
Systems of ideas have to be cultivated, educated, and, sometimes, destroyed.
Representative democracy has to be destroyed as an ideal.
Think Taubira. Who is Taubira? A primate. An ape actually. An ape dictating to seventy million people.
Yes, learn this, French judges: you are primates, not creatures of Allah. Or maybe you are creatures of Allah, but that’s a concept that exist only in your minds, and the books you read; it has no factual support. We apes, evolving smartly, over the last ten million years, pulled away from chimpanzees, not by denying what we were, apes, but by embracing it, understanding it and thinking about what it implied.
Denial may work when one has terminal cancer. But, otherwise, it’s hopeless. Maybe French authorities have cancer? A cancer of the mind?
If Taubira can’t stand that judges deduce it has been implied that she maybe just a primate, she should see the appropriate shrink. (Apparently the entire political class in France, we are told, approves of the judges’ Putin like diktat: so maybe they should all see shrinks? And reject Allah? Or then migrate to Turkey, by the feet of the Islamist Erdogan?)
Spiting people because of their origins is condemnable. Spiting condemnable ideas, though, is the essence of morality. Spiting science, such as the scientific discovery that the genus Homo is a type of ape, is extremely condemnable. So I condemn French “judges” for emulating Galileo’s judges.
Amusingly, I have been somewhat in error above. Political correctness has gained scientific semantics. So, instead of calling everybody “ape” from chimpanzees and gorillas to man, now everybody is called “Hominidae” (Hominids). Here it is:
Chimpanzee: Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class: Mammalia, Order: Primates, Family: Hominidae, Subfamily: Homininae, Tribe: Panini, Genus: Pan.
Here is Taubira, a “man”. Order: Primates, Family: Hominidae, Tribe: Hominini, Subtribe: Hominina, Genus: Homo.
Meanwhile the French People would be well advised to search for a new form of government more appropriate to the modern world, and the increasing democracy we all dearly need.
One does not have to look very far for inspiration: the Confoederatio Helvetica next door, an independent, and central part of the Franks’ Francia, is enjoying a much more direct form of democracy.
High time for Revolution.
