The time bandits

This week's Critical Thinking session discussed plans for an event in September in the context of 10 years after the crash to encourage people to explore ideas of hierarchy, the commons and usury within their own collaborative groups. This followed last week's discussion of adapting "this is a chord, this is another and this is a third.... now form a band."

Now form your own critical thinking group (16 minute video)

This was followed by explanation of Pete's paper on The Time Bandits

Exploring the existence and corruption of ancient knowledge and divine, natural law. Astrotheology, religion, law and Freemasonry. Institutional hierarchy of knowledge - esoteric (obscured) for the cogniscenti; exoteric (advertised) to the masses (followers).

Quoting James Walter:
Lethargy, indifference, low tolerance to frustration, history of failure to change anything with either votes or demonstrations, mass distractions, recreational drugs like alcohol, pornography , "don't want to know" or "won't believe it" attitude, trying to find or keep a job when employer might not like your politics, etc.


Yes Jimmy, sad to say but with learning comes awareness. One conversation at a time. As the "temperature" rises, more are beginning to look beyond their usual distractions.

We need to think beyond instant gratification

Lethargy, indifference, low tolerance to frustration, history of failure to change anything with either votes or demonstrations, mass distractions, recreational drugs like alcohol, pornography (biggest internet mass distraction deserves its own point for both distraction and making normal people look like excrement - with women watching it now, they are unsatisfied by the average guy https://www.thesun.co.uk/living/4174415/women-who-watch-porn-are-less-satisfied-because-their-men-dont-measure-up-to-the-studs-on-screen/), "don't want to know" or "won't believe it" attitude, trying to find or keep a job when employer might not like your politics, etc.
