Politics Serious Discussion - Getting out edition Bernd 04/24/2020 (Fri) 17:54 [Preview] No. 36217 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Justice Minister Moro resigned. He is immensely popular and was doing a good job. There have been high-profile arrests and in 2019 the number of murders dropped by 10 thousand compared to the previous year, a decrease of a fifth. This is a result of many factors: in the Northeast cooperation among cartels reduced violence, but the reduction happpened in other states. Legislation wasn't a factor as there was next to no real change in this regard. He retains much prestige despite the scandal with his leaks, eternal hate from the left due to being Lula's nemesis and repeated disempowerment of the anti-corruption struggle by Congress and the Supreme Court.
What caused this was Bolsonaro's elimination of Federal Police director Maurício Valeixo, who had been picked by Moro. In his final address he noted that:
-There was no legitimate reason for this as he had been effective in his post
-This was a violation of the promise Bolsonaro made upon naming him Minister, that he'd have freedom to handle subordinates
-Bolsonaro also intends to replace a subordinate of the director, the Rio de Janeiro superintendent, and possibly other superintendents, which goes against his spirit of giving autonomy to subordinates
-A replacement now would create confusion and harm the Federal Police's functioning
-Bolsonaro personally told him this was a political choice

Why political? He did not say this straight, but what everyone says is that it was to protect Bolsonaro's sons from investigation, and hence why the Rio de Janeiro superintendent is also involved. Their corruption accusations are petty for Brazilian standards but what's bigger are accusations they might be tied to militias. As always Bolsonaro's sons are his priority. This behavior doesn't come out of nowhere as he has few contacts in Brasília, having lived his career in the sidelines, and many reasons to be distrustful. Moro isn't someone he has a reason to distrust but his sons still came first.

>Bolso is accepting the result? How they communicating their loss to the public?
He hasn't spoken a lot, but has already accepted the transition to a new government and hence, admitted his defeat.

Most of those 20% couldn't care less about the penalties for not voting, which aren't very strict (e.g. not being able to work in the civil service).

Can fit to philosophy and politics, or even religion, but due to it's ties to the Theory of Power, I picked politics.

Machiavelli says it is better to be feared than loved, and the best would be respected, which consist of love and fear, but is very rare and the prince have to be fine of either of the first two (but then should be aspired to be feared instead of loved).
Older generations also teach the younger to have respect and give respect to the elder. It's a way of exerting control (have to think about how this fits to the Power Theory). From telling the kid to respect his parents and grandparents, to the bullying of younger conscripts by the older ones in the military, all similar. All these also seem to boil down to Machiavelli's maxim. Although general the kids love their parents more than fear, and the reverse with the military hierachy (at the moment I wouldn't go into cases such as a brute fathers or an emotionally exploitative mothers etc.)
There are a number of situations when respecting seems generally axiomatic. Abiding rules, respect the law. Staying quiet in the library is respecting their rules, and the institution. Respecting our hosts if we are guests in someone's house, or country (behave like Romans...)

But why Machiavelli thought it is hard to gain respect, if it's all self-evident in many everyday situations? I believe because giving respect (following behaviourial norms) and having respect (feeling that awe, knowing the quality, the capability, the achievement, the greatness, etc.) are two different things.
If you want respect you have to earn it - it is a common wisdom and describes well the situation. And this is where princes fell, they couldn't earn it. There were nothing extraordinary in them, besides the ambition, and Machiavelli knew it, and he did not demand the impossible. It is not easy to earn it. Being dangerous won't make you loved, and being generous won't make your feared. Those who try applying both might not know when to use each. And it is weird that while great many ways of earning respect - one can be wise, brave, consistent, steadfast, etc. etc. - people still fall short.
Can we feel respect towards people (institutions) we just met and know nothing about them beforehand? I highly doubt it. We can give, but can't have. Some want respect from every new face, beyond the humanly possible live-and-let-live norm. This expectation is quite egotistical, shortsighted, unwise, etc. These people themselves never tried to respect others, never walked a mile. Even if someone is highly respectable, the proof is on him to keep himself to his nature and gain respect again and again. If he really is, in most cases shouldn't be hard, but on every occasion it will need time. And more often than not, time can be precious, therefore reputation that precede us could turn into an important factor. But that's another story.

What would Bernd add to this? I feel I kinda left out that live-and-let-live aspect which just touched in the end for example.

Tried to dig up some cool gang sign for respect. But only this the best I could find.

Giving vs. having respect.
The chief difference just occurred to me. By giving it, one gets something in return, an advantage, or just he'll be left in peace, or whatever else. However having it, is the recognition, that the other deserves respect. The first one mutually benefits the respected and the respectee(? is this a word?), unless somehow the respectee loses respect in front of others, must be specific condition. The latter helps tremendously the respected.

My greatest problem are the gangs, which tied to the issues written above. Where the fuck they came from? As I mentioned while probably wasn't that tight knit community, but they knew each other. They also held the town from a common enemy, that tend to bring communities together - if there was no army inside that is... But if they were surrounded no way to get out or get in, they couldn't come from the outside. Plus weren't the "snipers" dangerous for the gangs too (if they were of the enemy's)?
And these gangs roamed around on the whole four square kilometers of the town (or even less, since the "suburbs" apparently was occupied by the "enemy"), and raided the little communities that formed in each street?
If we accept the description we get: considering the economy consisted of the materials present at the town when the thing started, plus the little they produced in the gardens, and the American MREs how come they did not just plundered the whole town in liek a week, a month? And these gangs could live off the simple people struggling for living? Or from the MREs???
Btw the notion that Americans paradropping MREs for them every 10 days for a year is just hilarious. Maybe once or twice during the whole time if at all. What kinda participation Americans had in the Bosnian War anyway if at all? They did bomb Hungarians in Újvidék/Novi Sad during the Kosovo conflict. Thank you Uncle Sam.
The whole thing is copypasted from Fallout and stuff, liek gang activity of LA (which phenomenon is practically unknown in whole Europe).

The lamp "kerosene", his pal produced. Did he have an oil well in the basement? (Maybe it can be done from vegetable oil, or some kind of fat, I guess we could make sense as general lighting substance)

Heh, he says "some - very few - had gardens". In a town of 6000, almost every home has a garden... Back in the day everyone cultivated vegetables and fruits, it's only now that people just have a lawn. Again, this isn't the US, but early 90s Eastern Europe, Balkans. And depending on when we are in the war (did just begin or it goes on for a few years now) everyone were trying to get by in one way or another.

Okay. I think that's about it. For now or for ever. There are other things to write. About the advices, what I found reasonable and useful, because there are some, as I wrote already.

The parts of the Bible he was using was a creation story which as is common for creation stories does not have much basis in reality, it's like making an argument that all humans are Japanese and descented from gods because the Nihon Shoki says we are all the children of the first emperor who himself is a descendents of the goddess Amateresu.
Yes I know the Romans thought them in Judea, that is what I am referring two. Rome won, there are other wars Israel has fought as well and some of those they lost.

The genealogy of the Bible reflects reality surprisingly well. It separates races, ethnicities, language groups, along a family tree. In fact most likely this Biblical view gave the basis of how history was put together by historians.
Tying an ethnicity to a particular person is also realistic, tribes were build upon blood relations, while state formations break these links, they still one component of the ethnicity.

Probably can be rule lawyered along the line of what counts as "Germany".

They are fictional father figures of people personified to represent those people but they don't actually reflect on the real origins of the peoples themselves.
For example, Canaan is the father of the Canaanites but he is also the father of Heth who is the father of the Hittites.
The Hittites and the Canaanites and in fact the Hitties and anybody in that region have very little if anything in common as the Hittites are an Indo-European people. As an Indo-European people they would not be ancestors of Noah nor would they have any kind of common ancestors with any of the people in the levant.

>They preserve the same as other honeys, practically indefinitely?
Lower sugar and higher water content means it's less viscous and more prone to fermentation. It must be stored in the fridge and won't last indefinitely.
>They are all over South Am?
And the tropics. The Australian Bernd might know, they're also kept comercially there. They're so omnipresent they're barely even noticed, lots of them are tiny. It doesn't mean they're all useful for honey, many forage on excrement and some even on rotten flesh. And even then, the number of species kept for their honey is wide.
>Well that old woman should be interviewed, and record her knowledge.
Folk knowledge on this should be preserved, but it isn't going away. Meliponiculture is as much of a science as apiculture, and biologists are certainly researching hive identification.
>How much they travel?
The bigger the bee, the further away it goes. The ones I see are smaller than Apis.
>Sounds good. Honey indeed differ depending what type of flowers collected from.
In this case it's more about different enzymes than flowers, the fragrance is completely different from Apis honey produced in the same region.

Tried to look up if I can buy Brazilian honey here. Uhh, the result was not satisfactory. I searched for brazil méz and I got a bunch of football jerseys (=mez). Searched for melipona méz too, now the hits were at least on topic, but all wrote about the healing properties and whatnot.
But I picked up some other info, liek Brazil is the largest producer of "organic" honey, but the production is heavily influenced by weather, especially snowy conditions can impact it negatively.

>Tried to look up if I can buy Brazilian honey here
That's too vague, honey production from Apis must be a couple orders of magnitude higher than from native bees. There's probably a significant overlap in the flower species they forage from and stingless bees still make different honey. Much of native bee honey is likely produced and sold without registration. Honey isn't even the point of keeping those bees, just a precious byproduct of pollination.

The rise of satanism Bernd 04/09/2019 (Tue) 20:58 [Preview] No. 24641 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
This thread is the discussion of the rise of satanism/occultism and the worship of lucifer I am a non denominational christian and read the scripture but firstly the best way I believe for people to believe the scriptures is to genuinely read them so if you want to genuinely read the bible go over to this site.

Now for the genuine meet of this discussion. If you haven't noticed there has been a substantial rise in satanism in these last decades. For instance the music industry is full of satanic symbolism and abuse but even going as far as to promote people such as alister crowley. A couple of examples.

Thanks for bumping.

I reread what I wrote and I'm going one step further about the asking stuff and the concentration of the thought.
In case of health, the mindset, a healthy spirit is important. Some of the illnesses (some people claim all, but I don't believe that) can be traced back to psychological causes, in general to stress (which can be caused by great many things). Furthermore a positive outlook can help in getting well even if the illness/injury is entirely physical (like a broken arm). So praying for health, believing in god's help, and having a hope can go beyond a simple placebo effect. Maybe miracle healings can be thanked for this too.

What does this mean to Bernd? Does it end with not reciprocating? Can one be really one without the act of giving back? How about towards God? What would be "returning the favor" towards him?
