CREEPING AUTOCRACY – YOUR LOSS OF RIGHTS 2 Feb 2017

Democracy at Threat
Democracy is under attack. Turkey is clearly moving from a democracy to a theist autocracy.
The USA has moved from a democracy to an oligarchy. Now David From wrote The Making of an Autocracy to be in the Atlantic magazine Feb. 2017 regarding the loss of democracy in Canada.

The Philippines now have a leader who is killing people without due process.
In Canada under the Harper regime a lot of the rights were weakened to the point that a single request from the PM could remove your rights. (see earlier articles) There are dictatorial laws instituted by Harper that have never been re moved.

Trying to Live a Simpler Life Away From the Trials of Humans
To avoid the harsh realities of life a women tried to live like a dog. A dog is by nature an animal that lives by it’s nose but a simple life. As it is increasingly house bound it no longer needs that sense nearly so much so it becomes less of a natural dog. A lap dog lives totally in a house does not need to use his nose. A woman who tried to live as a dog found it was not possible. Her evolution was too far past that and she made false assumptions about dogs. She is stuck with our collective problems. Humans do something the same. Those who live virtually most of their lives within a city have no need for much use of the senses. With erosion of many of our senses we now live mostly by our eyes alone. Canadian natives were exceptionally good listeners. We are bombarded with ads and close out listening. Music is magnified by volumes and burns our ears. Our legs are in poor shape because we take cars even to the corner store. Our digestion is attacked by a myriad of chemicals and we wonder why we have a cancer epidemic. But when we go to a park our pulse lowers and our blood pressure decreases, by evolution we are still people of the bush. Much of what is imposed upon us is harmful, the good is examined by scientists for a particular amounts of progress. But we are curious and for those who choose to our brain gets more and more exercise.

Evolution
By comparison the life of human species have evolved from living in the bush over a period of 2.1 million years. Homo sapiens from about 350,000 to 200,000 years ago. Some tribes have continued living in the bush such as the Bushmen of the Kalahari, others in the Amazon and in Indonesia. These people likely cross fertilized and without the 5000 years of European man as a guide are also Homo sapiens. Evolution occurs over tens of thousands of years. Homo erectus, 1.9 million years ago. Neanderthal to Homo Sapiens evolved from 350 to 200,000 years ago. So our current physiology probably has not changed much at all from the time of settlements 5,000 years ago.

Toward Government Democracy
In more recent times Governments make a big difference. Groups living under emperors in China and perhaps Egypt occurred by about 5,000 years ago as absolute dictatorships. Around 1 to 2,000 years ago the Greeks and Romans started to let their senators share power which shared intelligence and sorted problems better.
About 930 AD the Iceland Vikings held their Al thing credited as being the first parliamentary system.

As British power changed from the Tudors to the Stuarts, the first line of Stuarts shared power with the nobles around the late 1500’s. British parliament was developing.

The Idealized End Rationalizes the Criminal Means
We have now chosen to live under government systems. But systems can still be abused. In White Tiger the Author references India saying ‘in the climb to the top it is likely that that person has killed at least one person.’ In Canada when one reaches the top and supports existing carbon policies that person is probably responsible for more than one death. Fossil fuel caused climate warming today is the worlds greatest problem. In the world today 58 thousand people are at risk and need supports due to climate.
The “Estimated number of people that will be driven into extreme poverty by 2030 because of climate change : 100,000,000.” (Harper’s, Index. p. 9, Feb 2016)
Estimated deaths from pollution, mostly coal particulate matter and CO2 emissions in China caused 1.6 million deaths annually. For Europe .62 million. For the world due to fossil fuel caused climate warming 3 to 4 million deaths per year. Recently “20,000,000 people are at risk of hunger across Africa”.
Why is this?
“Estimated amount G20 nations spent in 2014 on climate-change-adaptation assistance for poorer nations $4,500,000,000
On direct subsidies to fossil fuels producers $77,000,000,000.”
(Harper’s, Index, March 2016. p.9)

Choices in Your Selected Sphere of Living
People live in terms of their belief brain. They have a fixed construct in their head about what they define as their reality and they won’t accept anything that goes beyond no matter how well it is based upon practical evidence. This limits peoples thinking a great deal. It limits what their lives may become.
Open your mind and your life does as well. We cannot live as simply as a dog. We cannot live within our own idea of a selected self defined sphere within which we take our actions depending on our inclinations. We know that we live on a planet with limitations. We must correct our lifestyle so that we do not act beyond the boundaries that the physical and biological attributes of the planet impose upon us.
But beyond that we find the WHY political actions increasingly serve the few.

Old Concepts & Wrongly Presumed What is fact
Now Sasquatch are like that and require an open mind. Many have reported sightings world wide and many in Manitoba.
For instance several decades ago people believed there were no cougar in Manitoba. There were reports all over but these were not accepted. Finally someone shot one near Beausejour.
There are reported sightings from many reliable witnesses seeing Sasquatch. They were a fact in native history. But the experts say they do not exist.

There is a video shot from a ferry near Norway House of a Sasquatch walking along the Nelson river and CBC broadcast it once. Still they are not considered a reality. Some fishermen camped up north. They said they had large rocks thrown towards them that scared them enough to leave. It could only have been Sasquatch, but they do not exist. Except natives have recognized them in their histories. Just because our technology hasn’t gone that far does not prove the species does not exist. They are recorded in Asia and in N. America. An animal as strong and fast as the Sasquatch could easily catch game. Biologically there is no reason the species as described could not exist. Many animals over winter the cold weather of Canada. The Sasquatch is no different. As the initiator of the Manitoba Speleological Society, a caving group, we have found many places they could over winter in relative comfort.

Lastly UFOs are seen by thousands yet government controlled opinion is that no such space ships exist. Sometimes it just takes time for our technology to catch up. Now that dark energy and matter is expected to be discovered, the Higgs Bosun particle discovered, the thermodynamic entanglement or Einsteins action at a distance is proven real and the new Universe proven with the up graded Hubble telescope, we need to open our minds to keep pace with knowledge. We have seen much further into the universe. A few years ago it was estimated by astronomers that there were 200 billion galaxies in the Universe. They said that if there is only one civilization, our own, in the Milky way galaxy as an average, IE only one civilization per galaxy in the universe then there could be 200 billion civilizations in the Universe. But the new telescope says there are now estimated to be 2 trillion galaxies in the universe. This best estimate now is as many as two trillion civilizations in the universe. It is absurd and statistically unlikely that there would be no other civilizations. I would expect as well that we can recognize other civilizations could have much superior technology. In fact that evidence is put forward by UFO specialists. Would you bet against a one in 2 trillion opportunity for advanced life? The opposite is true. There is a certainty that there are other civilizations. What one believes from a multitude of observations, what the extent is of our new experience may cast out existing limited beliefs into the range of the ridiculous. Be careful when you say some circumstance cannot happen unless you have looked at the most up to date scientific research, even if that research does not fit your life sphere or fit the prognosis of a few scientists about life in the universe. Read about the Higgs bosun particle, Einsteins “action at a distance” or thermodynamic entanglement, the discoveries of the upgraded Hubble telescope, dark energy and matter, anti gravity power source, gravitational waves – look to the future. Right now it is alleged that a private power structure controls a lot of the new knowledge. (Dolan, UFOs, 2009)

How to Solve Problems
Now we are setting the stage for a new kind of problem solving. Almost anything one can imagine could now be something we should investigate a little. Then apply some of our high speed computer technology or cross fertilization of ideas to it, and see where it takes us. Test a bit of it and re hypothesize to see what one missed the first time. Examine measurement types and what may be measurable in the near future. Look at other worldly technology. If they lived “where” what problems for them would have to be overcome. What technologies would they have had to have? In this new context the sightings of UFOs is not absurd, rather it is to be expected. Read Leslie Kean’s book UFOs or Dolan’s UFO 2009 work.

Skepticism and Government
“Apple’s music is accessible on every-ones I phone, Apple has placed conditions on its rivals that make it difficult for them to offer competing streaming services ” (Senator Elizabeth Warren, Atlantic, October 2016, p.27) In a 1930’s debate, “Brandeis argued large companies would inevitably exploit their workers, convert their profits into political influence, and corrode both the market and the machinations of government. ….[today] Citizens United has empowered business at the same time corporate profits have been hitting an all time high; wages are stagnating at the same time stock buybacks and dividends soar; corporate mergers are spiking as entrepreneurship languishes; mom-and-pop stores are shuttering as corporate franchises fill the empty spaces.”(ibid, p.31)
In Canada corporations have the right of a citizen under the Charter of Right and Freedoms, and this gives corporations the power to remove Rights and Freedoms from the citizen. People do not read the fine print as we have seen in the Trump case. Harper’s deceptive at best Omnibus Bills have been hidden from the public.

When people are not informed they act in ways that do not serve them well and take the advice of the elite controlled media.
So people believe because; they become followers; for religious reasons; because they have not read anything on the subject; because they fear an unmanageable future and because the power corporate elites control much of the news and control government by lobbying. So Trudeau will not make the voting system more fair where each vote counts, because it would be a barrier to elitist control. A barrier to ideas that may benefit us all. People accept false information because people seem to have a fixed concept of the sphere they live in and they cannot allow themselves to imagine anything outside of that sphere, until war or disaster hits. But in the climate warming case it is too late. We are on a very tight schedule right now. Look at the data on line: the interactive Prairie Climate Centre – Dr. Danny Blair et al. and Climate System Emergency Institute, Dr. Peter Carter, BC. and Dr. Hansen et al. – especially the chapter on the Tipping Points.
We need to make governments fully attack climate warming. Democratic governments that work for us – the people.
