Trump Wins

batman-killingSlowly we are trying to get back to a new normal – here is my attempt.  I have put together a few video clips that I have been working with this year. They begin with Mandelbrot’s fractals the  the math underlying Nassim Taleb’s book Black Swan. Then we relive election night with SNL and move into Sam Harris’s dismantling of Donald Trump on why he won the election, which is followed by his take on what the Democratic Left missed – not only what they missed but what the media missed. Then Jordan Peterson discusses tolerance and the potential facing the U.S. This is followed by David Harvey outlining a crisis of capitalism. Then Adam Curtis on Trump’s HyperNormalisation is a short clip from his full movie, which is followed by an Adam Curtis Interview – 16/10/2016 on his movie, which in turn speaks directly to the Americans now marching in the our streets  looking for a new way forward. Then we have a blackboard presentation by Leo on how fractals work which is followed by Benoit Mandelbrot’s TED talk on fractals and the art of roughness. Following this is Nassim Taleb in conversation with David Cameron, which we could imagine it being with Donald Trump. Taleb then delivers a commencement speech at American University of Beirut 2016, sounding in places like Donald Trump. My next Blog post is  Black Swan Trump.

Hyper Normalisation wades through the culmination of forces that have driven this culture into mass uncertainty, confusion, spectacle and simulation. Where events keep happening that seem crazy, inexplicable and out of control—from Donald Trump to Brexit, to the War in Syria, mass immigration, extreme disparity in wealth, and increasing bomb attacks in the West—this film shows a basis to not only why these chaotic events are happening, but also why we, as well as those in power, may not understand them. We have retreated into a simplified, and often completely fake version of the world. And because it is reflected all around us, ubiquitous, we accept it as normal. This epic narrative of how we got here spans over 40 years, with an extraordinary cast of characters—the Assad dynasty, Donald Trump, Henry Kissinger, Patti Smith, early performance artists in New York, President Putin, Japanese gangsters, suicide bombers, Colonel Gaddafi and the Internet. HyperNormalisation weaves these historical narratives back together to show how today’s fake and hollow world was created and is sustained. This shows that a new kind of resistance must be imagined and actioned, as well as an unprecedented reawakening in a time where it matters like never before.

    Suppositions about causality from the left are so twisted and warped by their own biases they are actually humorous. Sam Harris for example has his head up his ass so far he thinks the world is full of polyps and pink chunks. Just in the choice of words and labels he biases his own perspective so far as to miss the whole point of the election. Sexism: Who is more sexist…a man who uses his power and influence to grab pussies and get a glance at nude women OR a bitch who demonizes white men and brings her legions of feminazis to scream and yell about women not having equal rights and that she should be elected because she has a vagina…if anything, they currently have MORE rights…just like all “protected groups” with their affirmative action, advantages in hiring and promotion, contract and loan advantages, and every other advantage possible…young, straight white males have a lot more problems receiving equality than any of these groups in this modern world. Racism: I am not even going to start with this one. If you cannot see racism in blacks, Hispanics, etc voting near 90% for obama and now hillary who pandered to the blacks for her whole campaign and career…then you are so blinded by bullshit you think the world is brown. The minorities (Asians excluded) are FAR MORE RACIST than those they accuse of being racist. By the way, I wonder what percentage of the thousands of felons obama is commuting the sentences for are black? I also wonder what percentage of the million or so federal workers in DC are black? Did you notice about 90% of DC voted hillary? That’s not racist?!

    I have been really enjoying watching the different media describe and try to explain what happened. Sometimes I laugh out loud at the idiocy of the liberal media. It seems all the democratic babies who cannot accept our democratic system of representation within the Republic have to find some rationalization to put a negative context on the results and process. The truth is the bedrock multi-generational population of America said “enough of the feminism, racism, special treatment, rioting without consequence, bringing in millions of illegal immigrants with numerous felons and terrorists just to get their vote for a democrat, hillary crime and DC/Hollywood crap”! North Dakotans and Idahoans stepped up and gave the liberals in our society a wake-up call that we are indeed a polarized society and all the free reign the crazy radicals of the left have been exercising to loot, destroy property, disrupt society, etc while being non-productive members of society is going to come to an end. A society with no law and order and inflated “tolerance” is like raising children with no boundaries. The children often turn out like the purple haired hoodies roaming the urban areas of our country…no direction, no responsibility, and a load on society. Likewise, the liberal left under obama have had so much power that they can’t quite comprehend they may not get their way in the extreme they have enjoyed with a more structured system in place…in Congress, in the Supreme Court, in the White House, and in state and local governments throughout the USA.

    Well, this will be my final tirade on the subject. I find trying to explain my reality to individuals on other planets is a waste of my time for sure and probably a waste of their time as well.
