The Closing of American Minds Continues After Bloom and Ignorance of Secession Proves It

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Audio and Transcript – Here in the United States, and in much the rest of the free world, we have decided we’re not going to plug any more variables in.  Even if the variables are ones that were plugged into prior equations, we’re not interested in that because we’re smart.  We have iPhones.  We don’t need that.  We have flat panel televisions, three-quarters of an inch thick, 70 inches wide that can display pictures anywhere in the world.  What do we need your stupid, little theories for?  We’re not even interested in that any longer.  That’s the problem.  When you stop the curiosity, when you stop the critical thinking, when you stop the intellectual probing, when you stop the process that was begun by the Greeks, the art of thinking and philosophy, I think you find yourself or you create the conditions under which you can have a Lenin, under which you can have a Castro, under which you can have a Khmer Rouge or Nicolae Ceausescu or Benito Mussolini, where you can have a French Revolution where 14,000 people’s heads are cut off.  This is dangerous stuff and you see it all over. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…

Mike:  Whether we like it or not, the story of the secession petitions is still out there, still making news, and still influencing – I don’t want to say it’s influencing policymakers because it’s not yet, but it’s still influencing what people are talking about post-election.  I will just say to you, I know this is the case because in a post that was put up a couple days ago, I got prompted last night I had a new comment on the post about secession.  I go look at it and it’s some clown.  It’s basically saying, “Somebody’s got to stop these lunatics talking about secession and nullification and let them know the rest of us mean business, and if we have to bring the military out to put down this insurrection, we will.”

This is just a troll, I am certain; however, that’s not the only reference to “we’ll use the military to shut you up” that I have seen.  You people need to get over your arrogance, those of you who think like this, those of you that insist we had a war that settled this.  As a matter of fact, one of the pieces I read last night doing show prep was the Fox News piece where the reporter had gone to a professor at the University of Texas and asked: You have 80,000 signers on your petition.  What’s going on here in Texas?  Well, it’s just a bunch of rabblerousing lunatics.  Everybody knows it’s illegal.  Texas v. White settled that if the Civil War didn’t, blah, blah, blah.

This ahistorical, meaning anti-historical, aconstitutional, meaning anti-constitutional or unconstitutional, point of view is part of the problem with the rest of the government.  Again, we are possessed with people that do not know what they’re talking about, and they are committing and perpetrating fraud, whether it’s over the issue of secession, which I realize is probably not going to happen, although I think the discussion of it is extraordinarily healthy.  That doesn’t matter.  It’s the same old [mocking] “The history shows this is the way we dealt with it and we’re not going to deal with that one ever again.”  Really?

History shows how we’ve dealt with war, pestilence, sloth, how we’ve dealt with laziness, obesity, how we’ve dealt with any myriad condition in the human condition, yet we still deal with those.  Nobody says we’re going to stop dealing with cancer.  No one says we’re going to stop dealing with the common cold.  But when it comes to matters of life and death and freedom as it applies to life or death, we already settled that.  Really?  This is part of the closed-mindedness.  Professor Bloom was right back in 1988 when he wrote about “The Closing of the American Mind.”  The American sheeple’s minds are closed.  There is so little critical thinking that goes on and there’s even less intellectual thinking that goes on.  It’s disturbing.

AG, when you were in college, did you take any scientific courses?  I know what you studied, so that’s why I’m asking.  Beyond high school, did you study any biology or physics or any of that kind of stuff?

AG:  I did not, no.

Mike:  But in high school you did, right?

AG:  Yeah, the physics, bio, chem, all that stuff.

Mike:  Are you familiar with the term “hypothesis”?

AG:  Yes.

Mike:  What is a hypothesis?  It’s a theory, right?

AG:  Yeah, it’s your theory going into the experiment or undertaking.

Mike:  Then you have to do what?  You test it, right?  A scientist is supposed to go in and say: I don’t know what the answer is so I’m going to test it.  I’m going to put variables in and get a result.  Then you report the finding.  That then becomes your theory.  The hypothesis is how you think it’s going to work.  The theory is this is what my experiment shows how it’s actually going to work.

Here in the United States, and in much the rest of the free world, we have decided we’re not going to plug any more variables in.  Even if the variables are ones that were plugged into prior equations, we’re not interested in that because we’re smart.  We have iPhones.  We don’t need that.  We have flat panel televisions, three-quarters of an inch thick, 70 inches wide that can display pictures anywhere in the world.  What do we need your stupid, little theories for?  We’re not even interested in that any longer.  That’s the problem.  When you stop the curiosity, when you stop the critical thinking, when you stop the intellectual probing, when you stop the process that was begun by the Greeks, the art of thinking and philosophy, I think you find yourself or you create the conditions under which you can have a Lenin, under which you can have a Castro, under which you can have a Khmer Rouge or Nicolae Ceausescu or Benito Mussolini, where you can have a French Revolution where 14,000 people’s heads are cut off.  This is dangerous stuff and you see it all over.

The closed-mindedness about the act of secession, which is nothing more than a political act — as I’ve said a billion times, it’s from Latin meaning “to withdraw.”  We seem to be okay with it when the Sudanese were talking about it last year.  It seemed to be okay when the Soviets did it back in 1989 and 1990.  We only seem to have a problem when it came to Yankee, Northern, industrialist supremacy over subjugated Southerners.  That seems to be the only chink in it.  No one had a problem with it when the 13 states seceded.  They didn’t even go through the process of bothering to declare to independence before seceding, from the Articles of Confederation and adopting the Constitution.  No one had a problem with that.  None of us have a problem with the act of 1776.

Today in our closed-mindedness, we settle that.  We’re not going to talk about it.  Why?  Why aren’t you going to talk about it?  How do you know that it couldn’t produce happiness and safety for your people?  You at least ought to have the discussion and prove — screw the legality of it and screw Lincoln — prove that it would harm people.  That’s the intellectual discussion and process.  Prove that it would, for those of you on the other side of it, prove it would ensure and add to your safety and happiness and security of liberty for your people.  Prove it; write it; talk it.  But to just dismiss it, why not?  We’re $200 trillion in the hole.  I’d say a trip to freaking Mars ought to be on the table.  I say some device that can transcend time and space ought to be on the table.  Everything ought to be on the table at this stage of the decaying game that is the United States of America and our grand 232-year-old experiment.

    When Ben Franklin said we have a Republic if we can keep it I can only imagine what he would be thinking now. 232 years and we have let this country just go by the wayside. We have let 535 so-called political elitists gather their constituent sheeple into one big arena and cull them as they may. I have read many books and been to many websites to read what some call words of wisdom. Hell some cannot even get away from some reality show on the boob tube long enough to smell what is going on outside their own homes. Even some of those shows will prove what I have said. We will not slide down that fiscal cliff because we are already there watching the cliff come down on top of us. I listen intently to glean what I hope is wisdom but, when those who call themselves all knowing and will not even just find the truth out about what our country has gone through because they babble on and on about what they have No clue about I say shame on them. I have listened and read of some of those who say Abe Lincoln was the best ever not caring to read of his letters to Horace Greely a New York editor. Some of those so-called all knowing oracles just spew rhetoric that would not amount to a hill of beans. But they think it is true and passes for good entertainment. When it comes to secession those who think they are in charge just try to pass this on to We the People as a done deal not caring one damn bit to really study the facts. We have just had an election that consisted of 2 parties and only 2 parties. I ask why, where is the debate. Not just some silly game show on that thing we call t.v. Those were not debates they were time slotted elitist look at me, look at me wastes of mine and your times. When I bring up Ron Paul they call me a cultist even though some of them used to believe in his words of wisdom. All I hear is that Mr. Paul is not a great debater by whose authority is this given? I wonder did they think Patrick Henry was a cultist when he debated against the ratification of the Constitution? Do those who call themselves all knowing think Alexis D’Toqueville was just a Frenchman that was off his rocker? I see some agree to this and some agree to that but, these all knowing history buffs will not take the time to study the facts. A 2 party system is what our problem is and until those who think they know what they are talking about really come to realize this then those who follow along as sheeple will still be culled until there are no more.

    At a personal level, I’m not in agreement with that quote. The idea doesn’t conform to the Christian mindset. On a national level tho – yes – True.

    Was on the road and was able to write a quote from a caller from Arkansas on the 11/15 show made concerning something about the existing pain needs to be greater then the pain of change etc…….Mike then went on to quote a Latin one (Don’t need that one 🙂

    Did anybody get the full quote from the guy in AK and can you please pass it on?
