Canada admits the truth about the number of Indian children killed by residential schools

http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/provinces-hand-over-aboriginal-death-records-from-residential-school-period-1.1751450

Over 50,000 Canadian Native children died at residential schools because they were not white!

The schools were operated by various churches and sanctioned by the government of canada (lack of capitals intentional) .

Try to explain that away.

A Matrix of our own. Do people want the truth?

 Truth may not be the same thing over time, it may not even be the same thing for all people.

What is Truth?

It seems that Truth is a linguistic device variously theorized to mean anything from scientifically proven fact to socially acceptable construct. Truth is a framework upon which society as a whole can pin certain events in a fixed multi dimensional matrix. For a subject to conform to the definition of Truth, the logical position or location of a truth must always remain fixed so that different people may find it in the same place, though they may use alternate paths to reach a conclusion. Truth does not appear to require unanimous agreement, simply logically reasonable underpinnings and a majority acceptance. Flat Earth societies are evidence of dissent, which does not sway the public perception. However, there are arguments to reality and existence, which suggest that Cognitive Truth may not be the final answer to anything.

Perhaps Truth can best be defined by it’s absence. Deliberate distortion and dissemination of information, which the reporter of events knows to be nonfactual is the most obvious example of untruth, usually called lies.

The greatest danger of the deliberate introduction of large numbers of untruths is that the framework of information becomes corrupted so that an investigating person cannot find the expected result at the expected location within the matrix of reality. Much like your computer, these corrupted areas become a weakness and a liability. Any information drawn from these zones is immediately suspect because the underpinning data does not exist.

 For a social item to conform to the requirements of truth, it must be a mutually supporting fiber in the fabric of our society. Those facts which do not perform in this manner are obvious anomalies, much like bad weaving or pattern flaws. Logic and intellect do not allow the same freedom as is afforded to impressionist art. Events which do not conform to logical progression or established fact, are immediately upsetting to our equilibrium. Events which do not conform, lead us to the conclusion that either our perception is flawed or we are being mislead. When there are too many instances where we cannot trust our perceptions, then people become very frightened. The senses are useless and even dangerous if the information they deliver cannot be trusted.

For several thousands of years, since the dawn of organized civilization, humans have lived with a society constructed upon ritual and hierarchy. As civilization progressed this structure became increasingly complex, till we reached the point where very few were allowed access to the inner sanctums of power and knowledge. While this may sound like a description of the ancient Egyptian or Inca kingdoms, it applies equally to the present. The real power of any mature culture resides in the hands of a very small fixed group. The implied strength of this group is that with their knowledge and control of the structure, they are in a position to distort, or even, to collapse the structure at their whim. Not that such an action would be in the interests of the Elite. But, the threat is sufficient because the cumulative fear of the ignorant masses is greater than their discontent. This mutual dependency continues until some disruptive and yet persuasive force arises, which can convince the people that they would be happier under different masters. Very seldom, have humans tried to achieve independence from authority.  Perhaps, our genes still contain too much simian DNA. 

The core concept of the Truth Matrix Project is very simple. It is based on crowd sourcing credibility for any published item. Much like the “Rule of Error” theory which states that the larger the sample base of measurement, the greater the degree of accuracy. The “Rule of error” however, presupposes a standardized measurement tool. In measuring social truths, we are not afforded this luxury. Every person has a unique and different set of tools in their mental toolbox. Every person also has been subjected to an unique set of biases and has lived in an uniquely different environment.

Therefore, if we attempt to rank published “Truths” purely on the basis of social media “Likes”, the results might be meaningless as they will be hopelessly skewed by social popularity and by the biases of mainstream media publications.

What I propose instead is the creation of a peer-ranked system for the verification of any social item. In democratic fashion, each registered user of the system has only one vote/thumb. However, over time, both contributors and judges accumulate a weighting which contributes to, or detracts from, the value of that judgment.

Because of social media and very large computational capacity, such a calculation is now possible on a Global scale. We have arrived at a point where it is possible to present all people with a comparative view of the two faces of Truth. On one hand we have the external, or imposed Truth of authoritative entities, disseminated by the media. On the other hand, we have the internal or personal Truth of what individuals perceive.

No person can claim competence to know the Truth of every instance. But, I believe that all people have an inherent right to make a personal choice with the best information possible.

Request for input and ideas

A Global project for Freedom

This project has support from the owners of three liberal websites but, it needs to be further refined and also promoted to a wider audience. The opportunity to air ideas should not be limited to any one group or it would lose relevance. Any suggestions as to structure, content, or formating would be welcome. This is an idea that came to me by chance, I declare no ownership. This is about the future.

 The Better World List Project. Crowd sourcing the Future.Citizens are fearful and unhappy. Their needs and wants conflict with those of other people and sometimes even with each other. Governments do not seem able or willing to help. The realities of our world are limited by our imaginations and our unwillingness to try new things.This project is an attempt to combine the core interests of all people into an understandable form, which does not favor the vested interests of financial and political influence. The internet is the only tool we have for the job.This project will not create a perfect world. Each person is different. We have different values and different needs. However, until we express ourselves succinctly and list our positions in a concrete form, there can be no true understanding of our similarities and our differences. And there can never be a manifestation of the values of the majority.

The project, if you chose to participate, consists of listing the five core changes, which would make your life better. These five items should be listed in order of importance and described in twenty-five words or less.

Enough of this vague discontent. Spell it out for all to see and understand. Don’t worry about whether government can or will satisfy these demands. If enough people want something, government has no other authority. Don’t worry about what your friends and neighbors think, they all have their own list. This is not a popularity contest for you. It is an attempt at real democracy. The submitted lists would be compiled into a ranking to determine the top ten items and then published.

This project requires very few capital resources. The internet will provide the connections for free. People will need to provide valid names and email addresses to prevent spamming. All that is needed are secure servers and a computer large enough to process the incoming data.

Please feel free to comment in any way on this idea.

—————————————————————————————–

Where this project leads is a mystery.

I will list my five general items to show what I hope would be the direction. I do not mean to dictate or shape the lists of others.

1)     Military actions and spending.

2)     Social safety net; including Health Care and Education.

3)     Human Rights; including Freedom of Speech, Laws, Representation.

4)     The economy; including Government Spending, Job Creation, and Taxation.

5)     Regulatory Structure; including resource policies, markets, and courts.

These are very general categories and need not be followed. Hopefully, with a large response, a computer will be able to pick Keywords from respondents’ lists and generate an overview.

Welcome to FreeCanada

FreeCanada, the home of the starry eyed and the idealist. Don’t you wish you were one of us? Idealists are not naïve, we know how things work in the world and we see how pathetic it is.
This page is dedicated to the way things should be. If we do not make the effort to maintain such ideals civilization is certain to devolve. ‘The squeaky wheel gets the grease’, if it does not, eventually the bearings seize and the wheel grinds to a halt. Can you see any hope of improvement or even continuation of the status quo in our world if we the people do not demand it? If you do I would suggest that you are more naïve than I am.

Kris Kristofferson had it all backwards, http://www.guitaretab.com/k/kristofferson-kris/10040.html . He sang, “FREEDOM’S JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR NOTHIN LEFT TO LOSE,”. Those are the thoughts of a fearful slave. To a proud human being servitude will sour the enjoyment of any possession.

The oppressed man owns his oppressors, through his mistreatment and even his death they demonstrate that the victim has something that they lust for. Often this is an independent spirit. The most brutal oppressors are often no more than dependent slaves themselves. Wouldn’t you rather live in a World where freedom was more valued than material possessions? If we did, then every human would have the opportunity to be wealthy. Wealth may indeed be synonymous with happiness, but as material wealth can only be measured in relative terms, it is necessary to continually struggle to stay ahead of the pack.

We don’t want your money, We want Justice!

Many mainstream conservatives would embrace the Occupy Movement except that they feel their material wealth is threatened.  

However, most activists realize that seeking arbitrary redistribution is irrational on anything but the most venal level.

1: Redistribution by force without systemic change would change nothing except the faces of a few of the Elites.

2: The money is part of the Problem, not part of the Solution. Fiat money is a curse, no matter who controls it. The power to print is much greater than the power of ownership.

3: Also, redistribution at a national level ignores the global imbalances. If one calculates redistribution on a global scale, then most North Americans would be poorer.

4: Money by itself, without access to power, is not worth the paper it is printed upon.

5: The ownership of the means of production and the natural resources, including land, out-weight the financial values.

6: Arbitrary redistribution merely on the basis of wants, rather than merit and effort, is socialist theft, which is no better than the corrupted capitalist theft, which got us to this point.

7: A major component of the income inequality is poor education, which would not be addressed by redistribution.

8: Until the 99% achieve a proportionate representation in government, and that government is accountable for its actions, laws will do nothing to prevent a return to the current imbalances.
