Wake Up, America!



IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP, boys and girls. Your frenzied pursuit of happiness will come to a crashing end one day very soon unless you are prepared to fight for your freedom as in the days of old. You have a will, and a voice, use them. You have a brain, use it. Learn for yourselves the cost of freedom and the nature of American liberty. Learn to recognize her enemies within. And learn how to defeat those who want to destroy her...

You can begin by watching this video clip.

For those of you who fear Christians and or Jews, more than you do Muslims, I implore you to read this article by Daniel Pipes. You know who you are. My fine liberal American friends. Wake up, little sleepy heads. Put aside the distant past of the 1960s for a moment. Let’s start understanding what’s happening in your own and your children's lifetimes.

Knowledge will affect human seekers in one of two ways. Once modified by knowledge, one will begin to recognize that one's outlook on life has changed. A new seriousness has emerged. According to Wiki, the definition of knowledge is a matter of on-going debate among philosophers in the field of epistemology. The classical definition, described but not ultimately endorsed by Plato, specifies that a statement must meet three criteria in order to be considered knowledge: it must be justified, true, and believed. Some claim that these conditions are not sufficient, as Edmund Gettier case examples allegedly demonstrate. There are a number of alternatives proposed, including Robert Nozick's arguments for a requirement that knowledge 'tracks the truth' and Simon Blackburn's additional requirement that we do not want to say that those who meet any of these conditions 'through a defect, flaw, or failure' have knowledge. Richard Kirkham suggests that our definition of knowledge requires that the evidence for the belief necessitates its truth.

In contrast to this approach, Wittgenstein observed, following Moore's paradox, that one can say "He believes it, but it isn't so", but not "He knows it, but it isn't so".

He goes on to argue that these do not correspond to distinct mental states, but rather to distinct ways of talking about conviction. What is different here is not the mental state of the speaker, but the activity in which they are engaged. For example, on this account, to know that the kettle is boiling is not to be in a particular state of mind, but to perform a particular task with the statement that the kettle is boiling. Wittgenstein sought to bypass the difficulty of definition by looking to the way "knowledge" is used in natural languages. He saw knowledge as a case of a family resemblance. Following this idea, "knowledge" has been reconstructed as a cluster concept that points out relevant features but that is not adequately captured by any definition. What does all this say to our quest to understand jihad or fascism by the federal government? Not much. It's simpler than that. Forget straitjackets of political correctness. Forget howls and giggles offering racism an inch. Forget paranoia. Be calm, collected, self-reliant but community seeking. Reject all that is not related to fact.

Your task is preparation. Your motto: Be prepared!
