The Psychology Behind Turning Soldiers Into Killers

youtube thumbnail 1280x720 px (1)

https://youtu.be/1cV--8aT074 From Patrick McFarlane's Liberty Weekly Show Notes: In this first video/documentary style podcast, I review Lt. Col. Dave Grossman’s seminal work On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society. In doing so, I examine mankind’s inherent resistance to taking human life. Next, we take a look at the US Army’s discovery of this resistance and their subsequent efforts to overcome it. Finally, I examine Dave Grossman himself, his overarching thesis, and his side business, where he conditions government goons to kill reflexively. Patrick...

The Human Under the Numbers

sadako hospital 1955 noretouch

The story of Anne Frank is tragic. If not for the words that she wrote in her diary, she would be a digit of history. Her diary is relatable, and the thoughts that collected inside her being during a horrible time in history gives the reader an idea of who she was. She is immortalized because of the little things that she wrote, not because of any great deeds recorded by others. As a victim of tyranny she is remembered as an innocent murdered. She is a story found inside the numbers. Thanks to her diary, we have a human figure to know and mourn, despite the mechanized bureaucratic...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

Matt Taibbi: The Youtube Ban Is Un-American, Wrong And Will Backfire

2020 12 12 07 22

"There’s no such thing as a technocratic approach to truth. There are official truths, but those are political rather than scientific determinations, and therefore almost always wrong on some level. The people who created the American free press understood this, even knowing the tendency of newspapers to be idiotic and full of lies. They weighed that against the larger potential evil of a despotic government that relies upon what Thomas Jefferson called a “standing army of newswriters” ready to print whatever ministers want, “without any regard for truth.” We allow freedom of religion not...

The Worlds Largest Arms-Producing Companies

No surprise. I don't expect this to change under Biden (or any president). While he didn't make the worse pick for Secretary Of Defense, he did pick an ex-military four star general that took the all to common career path. Military - head of Centcom - retire - work for hedge fund that invests in defense contractors and government contracts - Board of Directors at Ratheon - back in government as SOD. Last year, sales by the world's 25 biggest arms companies were 8.5 percent higher than in 2018, totaling $361 billion, according to new data released by SIPRI. The 12 American companies in the...
