Comment: More nonsense from Hawking (Score 1) 532

by Sqreater (#49099879) Attached to: Stephen Hawking: Biggest Human Failing Is Aggression
No aggression, no Apple, no Microsoft, no civilization. And war is a group definition and expansion tool that comes from aggression and is absolutely necessary for expanding human civilization. Ever wonder why women do not invent powerful tech ideas and push them to dominance? Neither have they aggressively pushed any political idea. I don't mean participation. I mean none has taken the cutting edge. Ever wonder why women have to be pushed, forced, encouraged into aggressive tech environments? Why the urinals have to be taken out and the curtains put up? They don't have the aggression and they need the aggression removed in order to feel comfortable. Unfortunately, when you take out the aggression you take out the aggressive creativity. I don't doubt the doer-ship of women, but don't ever confuse it with aggressive creator-ship. Hawking, like many today, argues for the feminizing of mankind, and, therefore, its destruction. You don't need nuclear bombs to destroy it all. Just listen to and follow the naive rantings of people like Hawking.

It is mothers. Have you ever seen a man thundering about how he is not going to have his kids vaccinated come hell or high water? This is just more hidden feminist sociopathological empowerment of women. Now 20-year-old mothers are supposed to have the right to determine how dangerous their kids are to other children and the general community. And who can deny this? Nobody, they are WOMEN (and they need their vote). Expect more of this murderous political pandering to a demographic.

Comment: The cost of freedom (Score 1) 577

Rights and freedoms are defended not only on the battlefields of our nation's wars but in our daily lives. And when we can no longer accept the daily cost of rights and freedoms in our lives we cannot have them. The goal can never be to save the last life because we can give up all our freedom and rights and not save the last life. Taking a right or freedom, however justified it may seem, takes it from the hundreds of millions of Americans alive today and the billions to come. It is an extremely serious thing to do. Today it is being done thoughtlessly for our own good in secrecy by people who consider they have the right to do that. They do not.

They should vigorously fight the present day force toward the gynocentrification of all plots and the forced equality of women in all things - as we absurdly saw, for example, when the ship's counselor and doctor became trained to do bridge duty on Star Trek: The Next Generation. All kinds of TV series today start out with a vigorous male theme and then rapidly decline into female soaps. ST 1 was a glorification of male attributes and culture in a sci-fi setting. To boldly go where no MAN has gone before. It was a different time. Change the tone and destroy the verisimilitude of this endeavor.

Emotions are the state indicators of the Human Motivation Array (HMA). The degree of satisfaction of the HMA of an individual is indicated by the face and voice and movements of that individual. In complex social interactions (civil society) it is essential that we be able to quickly and accurately assess the state of the person"s HMA that we are interacting with in order to adjust our own behavior. I believe the male facial hair is not a sex indicator but meant to obfuscate the state of one's HMA, to hide it from other males. We must not, in evolutionary time, show fear or anxiety before other males. We take that beard off in complex societies to communicate more effectively, not for hygiene reasons. Women have no facial hair because their internal state must be read more accurately both by other females and by males. We know females have greater communication needs and skills. Their emotional state, and therefore the state of their motivation array is more clearly expressed to those who can read them. And human females have no trouble identifying and mating with a human male with no beard. It can't be much of a male identifier. More primitive societies still retain beards because there is more male to male fear in their beliefs. This is why a Vulcan society based on the suppression of emotion is not possible. They would have no idea if that Vulcan opposite them is about to kill them or cooperate with them. They simply would not be able to read each other.

Zero out of twenty-nine women made it through the U.S. Marine Corp. combat officer training course. Now there is talk about lowering the standards. Gynocentric gender-leveling is destroying excellence, even to the point of endangering our ability to fight and win future wars. It won't surprise me if there are quotas imposed in science and technology to the detriment of advance in all subject areas.

Genius is ten percent inspiration and fifty percent capital gains.
