It is because I am wary of charm.

It is charm that gets people handing over their babies so they can be stabbed with needles.

It is charm that gets people presenting themselves for cervical smears so people can observe the progression of cancer (no treatment).

It is charm that gets people...

Doing all kinds of things.

I think that that is why you want a population that is oxygen deprived, hit on the head a few too many times, brain damaged. The more you have lack of rational or cognitive (frontal lobe) capacity... The more the people are controllable by charm.

By charm...

By advertising.

MOst people aren't aware of the stuff we learned about in the 60's (they probably don't teach it anymore) on how you can contorl people purchasing things in supermarkets or whatever with product placement.

People (mostly) are reactive and very controllable in this manner.


I find it... Distasteful. Exploitative.


I don't find anything wrong with it in certain settings. It is nice to be charming to each other in an equal and mutual way of good feelings all around.

But it is different to try and get ones way by use of charm.


I'm not trying to persuade people with reason. But it takes a cognitive capacity to put 2 and 2 together and see how they add up.


When I was going up to the High Court and sitting in on some of the cases there was this thing where people were representing themselves or maybe their lawyers were inexperinced. One of them said she didn't get documents she needed to respond before the case... THe other one said they didn't need to file those documents in advance. The judge said that the law said that when x was filed y was to be filed.

The other one didn't realise (even after the judge said that) that that meant he was required to file them TOGETHER which means AT THE SAME TIME which means he did need to have filed it.

I was asked to leave at that point and the judge looked embarrassed...

But those kinds of failures to comphrehend...


The Ombudsmans 'judgement' seems intentionally designed to be incomprehensible for much of it. Just garbled nonsense. What a f*ck*ng joke.

The people in charge can't really be that incompetent -- can they?

It has to be corruption. Or maybe it is stupidity. THen there's some kind of mental block that happens, though, where people can't put 2 and 2 together because they became too personally invested in things being otherwise.

I don't know what it is. Just minimise time spent with such awful people.
