3rd December, 2016. 9:24 am. Acceptance

On the surface, it's semantics, but I had the thought that I should be fighting for GLBT acceptance rather than GLBT tolerance. Same goes for Interfaith, racial, gender, and overall societal acceptance.

22nd November, 2016. 7:33 am. Five to Ten Issues

This came from wingywoof and I thought I'd list my own take, here. 5-10 issues that matter to me:

Biodiversity in the Food Supply
We have mono-cultures in what we grow on our farms and foster on our ranches. This, to me, not only creates limited experiences in what we eat but harms the soil and environment. We need greater diversity in what we produce and consume. The antithesis of this is what caused the Dust Bowl. It matters to me that we learn what to grow, how to grow it, how to use science to safely utilize these creations and conditions, and when it would be best to consume what we create. Just because you can get a single type of hardy tomatoes in January doesn't mean that they're good or good for the environment.

Freedom to be Yourself
To be unafraid and unfettered in living a life that makes you happy is truly important. This means sexual orientation, gender expression, race, creed, philosophy, career, and everything else that makes a person in society a member of society. It means "society" needs to be less monolithic and insular. It means passing laws and educating people that other ways of existing are just as valid as others. It means keeping an open mind to non-harmful, non-exclusionary new ideas for living and interacting with one another.

Genetic Engineering and Research
Re-wiring who we are and what our biochemical world is, allows more freedom but also comes with responsibility. I want to, in the end, see us able to edit, update, innovate, improve, and change our biological world but carefully: with an eye towards unintended consequence and wider ramifications of those actions.

Universal Health Care
Health care should be universal. As science pushes back ignorance to understand more about what limits and impairs life, it must be a fundamental freedom that all people have access to those discoveries, in equal measure - regardless of the amount the individual may use, to improve and extend their lives.

Ageism
Treating people beyond "x" age as not being intelligent, informed, attractive, or important, is insulting and demeans their sense of self. Society, on all levels, ignores people not of their generation and demonizes those outside it. This can isolate people and make them feel like they don't matter, creating an environment for depression and anxiety.

Alternative Energy
Improving non-fossil and non-chemical fuels and energy storage can only help the environment and provide a cleaner, more powerful world for each of us. Solar energy, differential heat engines, wind turbines, and other forms of non-burning energy sources would help us all by giving the energy we need and letting us not degrade or damage the environment.

Space Exploration/Mars Colonization
Sending humans to other planets and other solar systems is chided as "childish" by many. But exploring the stars and finding new vistas --answering questions to ancient questions while uncovering even more questions to answer-- improves our knowledge. The better our knowledge, the better we can adapt and appreciate the universe. Going to Mars, colonizing and perhaps terraforming it, would be a great goal, getting us off of "Asteroid Target One" (ie: "the Earth") and putting our species on a better path towards long-term survivability.

Media Responsibility to Truth/Facts/Non-Distortion
Artificially showing balance by creating false equivalences, making "information" into "entertainment" where the entertaining portion undermines the value of the information, needs to stop. Media needs to spin less and tell, more. Sure, providing interpretation and context is crucial but the people doing it from an informed position need to be vetted and their statements, evaluated, prior to being reported. In a Democratic system, clear understanding is crucial. It is the primary foundation of an informed electorate. It is also the foundation of an informed society. In order to report or insinuate something as "true", there must be standards of vetting and reporting to ensure it.

Protected Land and Parks
More land must be protected in a natural or as-close-to-natural-as-one-can-get state for the enjoyment and appreciation of all free peoples. Existing protected land must be fully funded for the benefit of both human use and wild plant and animal species living there. Keeping these lands clean and well-monitored is crucial for having a space outside our more tightly altered living areas for exercising that part of our minds that appreciates the natural.

15th November, 2016. 9:28 am. Circumvention As Action

SUMMARY
Most non-profits are formed to perform a task that the government either can't or won't.

I've been wondering if groups of citizens could create and/or consolidate non-profits to do what we need instead of Trump and the alt-right.

In short: create the programs we want, locally, despite the best efforts of alt-right lawmakers.

Each could be worked to be modular, working in conjunction, as a sort of government-within-the-government where possible.
Building A WorldOver the past week, I've been looking at the forces that Trump is marshaling to do his (and Breitbart's) bidding and, frankly, been feeling discouraged. More than "discouraged", I feel like I'm living in the run-up to a 1960's dystopian movie based upon a Goerge Orwell novel but adapted by morons. Sadly, the inmates appear to be running the asylum.

But I started thinking: what if we could fix this on a local level? In addition to playing "goalie" for the next four years, what if citizens of a like-mind could coordinate the creation of modular organizations to make the improvements our country needs? This isn't anything new. Non-profits have been around since the dawn of the country. What I'm proposing is the idea that:
  1. Groups of people figure out what they have in common and what they would like to achieve.
  2. Work to create singular, but mutually beneficial, non-profit groups to do just that.
  3. Work with existing non-profits to streamline and coordinate functions.
  4. Build processes for change with an eye towards, eventually, turning maintenance over to permanent, government groups or, if that would be disastrous, maintain these groups with a government-like constitution and set of rules/laws.
Basically, if Trump and his enablers/allies are going to reach for the brass ring and stack the deck against the will of the people, why not organize that will against them in a way that, institutionally, is more difficult to suppress?

I'm a believer in government being by, of, and for the people. But, right now, I'm not seeing that we are existing in that world. Many of those voting for Trump have said that what they want is for their voices to matter. Democrats and Republicans, alike, want to get rid of lobbyists. We want our voices to matter. Now, granted, this can be dangerous (I'm thinking "Tyranny of the Majority", here) but what if we do our best to actually try and create a government-within-the-state run by those of us who feel Trump does not represent our best needs?

It's at an early stage of thinking, right now, but I'm starting to get enthralled by the idea.

Here's your job: rather than say why it won't work or what's wrong with this "plan" (which is so vague, right now, it isn't even a "plan"), tell me what you think this idea would need to succeed. What steps, general and specific, would need to be taken to make this happen. What goals would unify people to work together on this?

Thoughts?

Yours,
Sylvan (Dave)

13th November, 2016. 9:37 pm. Fighting is American

Painting with too broad a brush is a disservice to the fundamental nature of humanity; as the ancient Greeks called it, the "Arete". At its core, this means "fundamental nature" or "ideal nature". In ancient Greek philosophy, the arete of a human was "to reason". Over-simplification is the enemy of this fundamental trait.

So when someone says, "look at the protesters; so violent; it's them - not us" I get angry. One, two, six, or a dozen out of hundreds (if not thousands) of peaceful protesters is as harmful to discourse as those who say, "all supporters of 'x' are whole-cloth supporters of 'y' belief that 'x' possesses."

But this is not some sort of kumbaya post. And as much as I wish, whole-heartedly for peace, I cannot ignore the wounds inflicted upon many in society and just be quiet and play nice.

Do I believe that violence solves anything? Well, I got my degree in Ancient Civilizations: you tell me.

Sun Tsu would say that violence is a tool; one of many. I do not advocate violence because, all too often, it is the one tool which, once removed from the box, cannot be put back. So, yes: there are circumstances under which violence has its place. But that is so dangerous a tool, that place had better be fully vetted, scoped, measured, understood, appreciated, and controlled. But if it is not these things, those utilizing it haphazardly, must be prevented from using it.

The trick is knowing what is "haphazard" and what is not.

Who is to judge?

I wish I knew. I can say for myself that most people seem like dullards when it comes to planning. I put myself in this camp. This is why, in many ways, I'm a coward. I know that what I would do with violence is not productive. And I am at peace with that.

Most of the people I know are this type of "noble coward": the sort who know what they might or could do if enabled. And, as such, they spend their lives building safeguards against such situations.

I no longer am sure where I was going to go with this diatribe. Social media is a poison: it boils things down too much - far too much reductio ad absurdum. So why post this at all?

I'm wondering if I should hit "post".

I'll say this, though: I have heard many cry "foul" at the protests against President-elect Trump. I have heard many say "give him a chance". I do not think he is owed a damn thing. He made his positions clear throughout the election. So, while I may not join protests for fear of contributing to violence, do not think me on the sidelines. I will act; I will stand against those who feel that voting for Trump despite so many horrific un-American statements was justified for the goal of "fixing the system".

"Fixing the system" with a vote is like Social Media Activism. It allows you to feel you've done something without actually having done any of the hard work. And, yes, I'm quite aware of the irony in me posting this observation on social media.

You vote and then decide that banning Muslims (or "Extreme Vetting" if you prefer that neologism), deporting illegals, or dismantling protections for GLBT folk is "Okay" because those are the qualities that you, personally, don't agree with: get stuffed. Go away. Just lie down and pretend you can't hear my screams. You voted for a man who has said he will make Stephen K. Bannon the chief strategist and senior counsel to the incoming president.

The essential architect of Trumps cabinet has stood against anti-bullying laws, equates Planned Parenthood with the Holocaust, thinks that women have done just fine and aren't suffering in today's society, is a Global Climate Change denier, and is an unashamed Internet troll.

You voted. This is what you got. What are you doing about it?

Oh, right: you can't do anything about it. Your power and influence, unless you want to actually go out and protest, ended with your time at the ballot box. Trump put this asshole in place and no amount of you saying "I think women deserve protection" or "Transgender folk should have full protection under the law" or "bullied kids need more legal protection from online harassment" is going to change that. You vote for someone, you get the whole package. And, as I said countless times during the election, Trump does not strike me as the sort to listen to critique or concerns if he does not share them.

So, congratulations: have fun trying to reign-in your president-elect.

I'll be doing what I can to support legal avenues to stop him. I'll be cheering the protesters on and, y'know what, reminding you that a few violent assholes are NOT the movement.

I'm going to be doing something.

I hope you are, too.

9th November, 2016. 9:00 am. The Morning After

Showered. Shaved. Doing laundry.

At least I can start my day, cleaning.

As for the election, it demonstrated one thing: I live in the right state and in the right region.

I loathe Donald Trump for what he represents to me: a callous, hate-filled, snide, smug, self-important, rich man who thinks the rest of us need to be the same.

As for what I'm going to do about it, I guess this is where I dust off my shit-kicking boots and wade back in to the morass of playing goalie for America. I'll have lots of help. But it's always more difficult when the team playing against you has the White House on their side.

But I've done it before. I can do it again. I was just hoping I could get back on my emotional feet before it hit me.

I'm relatively numb right now. It's a feeling I know very well. It's how I felt at the worst moments of my depression: the feeling that you're over-taxed, have too much on your plate, and don't feel any real drive to do anything.

I had fought that, quite a bit, this year. I'm on new meds, seeing new therapists: the whole nine yards. The first third of the year was a loss for me. I'm frustrated that, going into the last sixth, I'm feeling that way again. I'm hoping this will pass in a day or two, because I'm going to need my drive and passion for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

Right now, though, I'm going out for a bit.

Maybe that will stir me to feeling better; to feel something.

I didn't write for NaNoWriMo, yesterday, and I'm not sure I will today, either.

When somebody with depression and anhedonic thoughts says "I'm not feeling it", this is what it means.

Thoughts on all this ordering and ranking? Honestly, this is so subjective, I can see many interpretations other than my own. This sort of thing reveals more about the ranker than the rankee.

30th October, 2016. 9:24 am. 13 Horror Films

What makes a good horror movie? Well, that's based on what you want to get out of a horror film. Personally, what I love is being drawn in and having my darker notions challenged and celebrated. Then there's the tension; the suspense. I want it to ramp up, peak, and end with me being satisfied (with plenty of punctuated highs and lows, in between). In short, it's a lot like sex.

So, which horror films left me panting in a post-coital afterglow? Here are my top 13:
  1. 28 Days Later (2002)
  2. Prince of Darkness (1987)
  3. Alien (1979)
  4. In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
  5. Evil Dead II (1987)
  6. the Descent (2005)
  7. the Ring (2002)
  8. Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 (1988)
  9. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
  10. the Babadook (2014)
  11. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
  12. the Thing (1982)
  13. the Cabin in the Woods (2011)

What are your favorite, seasonally horrifying films?

Yeah, "Scream" is another favorite as is "Godzilla" but, well, I had to stop at 13, right?
