Vladimir Putin Manic Monday

2/28/2022 7:49 AM Morning PageMonday Monday by The Bangles [https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SsmVgoXDq2w] starts our day. 

I heard the other day that listening to music while one writes has a motivating impact on what and how one writes.  As I am listening, I used YouTube to peek in at what was happening in the Ukrainian War of 2022 – it seems the aggressor Putin may have misjudged Russian readiness for the engagement.  However, a misjudgment about his conventual preparedness only means he likely will turn to his nuclear weapons. The logic of mutually assured destruction (MAD) which is “a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender[1] It is based on the theory of deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons against the enemy prevents the enemy’s use of those same weapons. The strategy is a form of Nash Equilibrium in which, once armed, neither side has any incentive to initiate a conflict or to disarm”. To follow Nash’s Equilibrium idea one can read The Power of The Nightmare [ttps://wordpress.com/post/dialecticanalyticalman.com/1628]. Other Parts Power of Nightmare can be watched.

At the end of this blog The Power of The Nightmare are linked these related posts: Bulworth “Lonesome” Trump, Donald’s got his gun, Kapitalism on the Couch.  Can you imagine, listening to Trump at CPAC last Saturday that he may be running again for US President?

However, this morning we will watch and listen with our 3rd ear Why are Most People Cowards? | Obedience and the Rise of Authoritarianism[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zOJLGpfnX34] and reflect on our own cowardness. Courage is the key variable to be addressed.  Time for another cup of coffee…  I still have Fannie harassing me to be doing work.  It is now 9 am and this MPage took me an hour to pen – Fannie does not consider this work. What is work?  Wiki states this: Work (human activity), intentional activity people perform to support themselves, others, or the community.  Then we can add this thought on a “work of artartworkart piecepiece of art or art object is an artistic creation of aesthetic value. Except for ‘work of art’, which may be used of any work regarded as art in its widest sense, including works from literature and music, these terms apply principally to tangible, physical forms of visual art.” So, the little woman’s definition of work has to have the component of earing money to live life. So, far my writing art work has not earned a penny, however, what I am doing should still be defined as work.  To get her off my case I will need to earn a dime.  Who will pay me two nickels for these paragraphs? Brother or sister do you have a dime?
