CAROL MOORE REPORT



I report on how consciousness and community are transcending god and state, locally in Washington, DC, and globally, where ever I see progress - or backsliding, including on the feminist front! "Imagine there's no countries, and no religion, too." Explore

Speaking of GAS ATTACKS on Women and Children

2018-04-19T16:00:20.479-04:00

Memes to start. Text to come. Or see Carol Moore's book THE DAVIDIAN MASSACRE. Davidian church and home before February 28, 1993 BATF attack.  Tanks smash into building putting dangerous CS gas inside with pyrotechnic (fire-making) artillery rounds until the building catches fire and burns, killing most of the trapped inhabitants. Update 4/18/19: Austin American-Statesman ran a 25th anniversary story featuring yours truly plus other Waco experts. The title is far less sympathetic than the article itself. A quarter-century later, `dark theories’ still hover over Waco siege by Jonathan Tilove - American-Statesman Staff - April 14, 2018. Excerpt... read whole article quick before the paywall shuts you down; a number of NEW exposes!  And in comments, don't miss any snarky vitriol from Hillary&BernieBros and other authoritarians.......Lexington, Concord and WacoOn April 19, 1993, Carol Moore — a feminist, pacifist, libertarian writer and activist from Washington, D.C. — was planning on celebrating the 217th anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Moore is the great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Col. James Barrett, the commander of the militia at Concord. She had been following the Waco standoff and after watching CNN’s live coverage of the fire, she closed herself in a storage room and wept.“What a way to celebrate Lexington and Concord — burn to death individuals also accused of owning too many weapons,” Moore wrote in the preface to her 1995 book, “The Davidian Massacre: Disturbing Questions About Waco Which Must Be Answered,” which was published by the Gun Owners Foundation and offered a comprehensive examination of the controversies in Waco’s wake.After seeing “Waco: The Big Lie,” Moore traveled to Mount Carmel during a visit to Texas and met some surviving Branch Davidian women.“Writing this book has been an angering experience, as I have continued to find more and more evidence of federal crimes and cover-up of those crimes,” Moore wrote in the preface. “My research and experience have convinced me that the federal government, with full cooperation of the media and the press, destroyed a loving, committed, interracial community and family, something all too rare in our isolated, alienated, bigoted world.”Asked by the American-Statesman to evaluate the various Waco conspiracies and cover-up theories 25 years later, Moore began by defining a conspiracy theory as a belief that “an event or phenomenon occurs as a result of a conspiracy between interested parties; a belief that some covert but influential agency (typically political in motivation and oppressive in intent) is responsible for an unexplained event.”“This includes not only the ‘grand plan’ but every little action, incident and coverup that advances that plan,” she said.For Waco, Moore said, “the overarching conspiracy theory held in various permutations by most critics of the government is that an ‘out of control’ federal agency with budgetary needs decided to put on a big military-type show bringing several local agencies together. They needed a big target and the Davidians were it, so they listened to the Davidians’ enemies, dug up all the dirt they could, ignored the Davidians’ (legal) gun business and previous cooperation with law enforcement, and went in with the attitude they were at war against a domestic armed force of de facto terrorists.” ....CAROL'S LETTER TO EDITORFirst, my apologies to the author for not specifying in notes that my definition of conspiracy theory came from the Oxford English Dictionary via Wikipedia.Second, the author only mentioned the first half of the "overarching conspiracy" I've described.  The second half is that as a result of attacking the Davidians - as if in a "war against a domestic armed force of de facto terrorists” - on February 28, 1993 BATF agents ended up shooting at the unarmed Koresh and his father-in-law at the front door.  They shot indiscriminately into the building, as well as allegedly from helico[...]



The memes of March, 2018

See all my March rants quick at Facebook/CarolMoore1776.  Just see a couple hot memes of my own, so will include other people's too!And someone quotes The Dude (or what he WOULD say):[...]



Manhood proved through violence worldwide

2018-02-18T19:46:00.449-05:00

As long as I have blogger open, might as well share something a woman wrote and I commented on. The "violence to prove manhood" theme and truth is something I've been promoting for last 17 years especially.

From a libertarian viewpoint, of course, access can be restricted by gun sellers voluntarily NOT selling to people who they believe are mentally disturbed. And companies not engaging in profiting off selling weapons to terrorist groups and evil governments all over the world. And people voluntarily giving up guns to private associations that will destroy them. Obviously having a bunch of macho jackbooted thugs raiding homes to take guns is as bad as macho jackbooted thugs raiding homes and clinics to stop abortions.

The other thing is to secede into communities of likeminded people who don't want guns - except for the police who keep out gun owners, of course. Just hope they don't become tyrants 





The memes of early 2018

2018-02-18T13:12:21.726-05:00

Feeling feisty again! At least feisty enough to meme away - make sure #POTUS saw a lot of them. If he was looking! Not to mention thousands of impressionable young minds on social media.Catching up on three months of undone personal projects. Secession.Net WILL get up their fully loaded sooner rather than later. Meanwhile you'll see me wasting lots of time on public posts at Facebook/CarolMoore1776 and Twitter/CarolMoore1776REACTION TO RUSSIAN INDICTMENTSOf course, some old farts like BERNIE SANDERS have Russian heritage, WANT a big socialist state like USSR used to be and are pissed that Russia has become a kleptocratic oligarchy. He's too dumb to realize that's what it was under communism too, just a lot poorer.  The rich then ate meat every night.  Now they own palaces.  Haven't thought of a clever meme for that message yet.MY REACTION TO YET ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTINGI could do one showing how Deep State and Media profit from them.  But I probably will do one on how Radical Decentralization/Secession is the answer and different communities can make up their own gun laws.WAR WITH NORTH KOREADo we really believe Trump White House's latest denial there NEVER was a "bloody war" attack on North Korea scenario. This is best article on topic I've seen so far: Here’s what war with North Korea would look like - A full-blown war with North Korea wouldn’t be as bad as you think. It would be much, much worse in VOX. This is my "go to" meme whenever I see a couple of alpha males battling away on social media. Just stick their photos in the template. I keep sending this one around, lest we forget!! "GENDER IDENTITY" MADNESSOnly one new meme!?!  So here are a couple amusing photos from other radical feminist anti-genderists.  [...]



The memes of late 2017

2018-01-03T22:46:32.107-05:00

Don't get old. Rough fall with bad reaction to the senior superflu shot, old lady sinus issues, old lady head bump issues, gained 25 lbs this year and my knees are killling me old lady complaints - and worst of all two MORE old lady teeth removed.  Can you guess why the Solstice song I sang the most was "all I want for Solstice is my two front teeth"?So actually I didn't do too many memes in late 2017.  And even fewer FB rants than usual. And barely anything else got done besides laundry, cooking, minimal house cleaning and constant care of whiny big mutts - and semi-care of my semi-disabled male whatever....  On with the show...#1 on this topic#2 on this topicMerry Solstice Decorations at my house...[...]



Review of Jane Jacobs' "Cities and the Wealth of Nations"

2018-01-03T22:47:22.411-05:00

Combing through my files, I found a book review I wrote for the Libertarian Party News in the spring of 1985 and reprinted a few years back in my old Vermont Commons blog (secessionist site now renamed/rebranded to VermontIndependent.org/).  The LP News editor at the time was Karl Hess and our views were very sympatico.  (I later wrote the introduction to a Loompanic’s republication of his book “Community Technology.”)It is amazing to me how similar my ideas at the time are to those today.  It also shows the virtue of patience: today a majority of the world’s people – and even a large plurality of Americans – are ready to listen to ideas about radical political decentralization and secession.So below is a version slightly edited to reflect the passing of the years and to appeal to a wider audience than just libertarians. After reading it I hope you’ll agree Jane Jacobs (1916-2006)  is yet another heroine of the decentralist and secessionist movements.Cities and the Wealth of Nations: Principles of Economic Life by Jane Jacobs, Random House, 1985.Jane Jacobs activist and writer.In the twenty-five years after community activist Jane Jacobs’ book The Death and Life of Great America Cities first took on big government and private developers, accusing them of ruining cities and their neighborhoods, it sold more than 250,000 copies.  In those years most city planners and architects swung over to her position, and she earned an international reputation as an urban expert. In her Cities and the Wealth of Nations, Jacobs took on economists from Adam Smith to Milton Friedman, as well as the institution of the nation state, arguing for truly free markets and the “expedient multiplication of sovereignties” – i.e., the secession of cities from nation states. (Definitions of what is a “city” may differ, but I would say that today generally it is any urban area of at least 50,000 people.)Jacobs’ book was praised by many urbanists and panned by many economists. It divided the “liberal” press, with New York Magazine, The Nation and The New Republic denouncing Jacobs’ new “conservative” and even “dangerous” direction, while The Atlantic , Mother Jones and The New Yorker printed favorable reviews. The Los Angeles Times awarded the book its 1984 Book Prize for Current Events. Even the business press was divided: Barron’s mocked it while Forbes respectfully interviewed its author.Jane Jacobs was not an economist , but like many free market economists she rejected mathematical economic models in favor of analytical reasoning, direct observation and empirical evidence. Similarly, she rejected the macroeconomic assumption that “national economies are useful and salient entitles for understanding how economic life works” and economists’ assertions that government intervention can ensure healthy economies. Rather, she regarded cities, hotbeds of entrepreneurial activity, and as the relevant economies which should be studied. She asserted that nations are just grab bags of cities and their regions brought together by ‘bloody military force”. The true purpose of national economic and military policies is to keep these unnatural national entities from falling apart. However, Jacobs held that these policies only insure the steady decline of both nation states and their captive cities worldwide, resulting in economic stagnation on a global scale.Jacobs supplied many examples of how vital cities upgrade their economies as entrepreneurs keep shifting to produce goods formerly imported from more advanced cities, a process she calls “import replacing”. These cities also improve the economies of their surrounding regions, providing jobs for their inhabitants, markets for their raw materials and manufactures, and eventually physically expanding into those regions.Jacobs believes that less economic[...]



The memes of fall 2017

2017-11-21T11:04:20.462-05:00

Veterans Day Thoughts on the World Wars

2017-11-21T10:26:04.673-05:00

Walter N. Barrett, my mother's father, in 1917. Gassed and wounded in legs at Belleau Wood in 1918. Laid in mud for three days before rescued. On the way home his first ship was torpedoed. My father was luckier. He only piloted surveillance planes over No Africa 1944-45 and high tailed it out when they saw their one German plane.

After I posted the photos below and the comments above on "#Facistbook",  a couple relatives came out with stories about my father's three brothers who saw extensive action in Europe and the Pacific during World War II. But the stories they shared with their kids - or their kids shared with other relatives - were very general, avoiding the gore and trauma and emphasizing comradery or amusing incidents. Denial is more than a river in Egypt...






Women speak out, shrivel male testosterone...

2017-11-21T10:11:02.232-05:00

She's back!! Here, anyway.  Of course I rant away at Facebook still. Usually in much shorter form.  Here's a long one from today. And I just made the meme!! As a testosterone shriveling feminist, the spate of disclosures and exposes by brave women of sexist pigs left and right has been delightful. And let's not forget for every woman brave enough to speak out in the case of the serial abusers, there probably are 2 or 3 times as many who never will speak out. I certainly have a number of stories which I share here and there, including the full range of actual and attempted physical abuse, both in social and employment situations. Nothing that would make the news, unless I pressed charges. None of the "famous" people I knew over the years even came on to me, so no big revelations here!! But the minor creeps were exposed among my peers.Socially, being more sexually aggressive than most women, I often was too busy chasing the ones I wanted to spend much time worrying about the ones pursuing me. Plus it was fun making fun of the ones who came on to me who turned me off. Job-wise, in my 20s when this was a particular problem, I always quit any job where one or more male assholes pulled that crap and tried to keep power over me. (Except for a couple who turned me on and we did the nasty.) And I'm sure there are millions of women like me, many of whom effectively gave up careers to avoid harassment and are as broke as I am in my old age.Of course now men are saying "Oh, I'm afraid to be alone with women in offices now. We better not hire them." No, jerk weed, that's not the answer. Tell all the other jerk weeds to cut out the crap and then it won't be an issue any more. And media, keep exposing these jerks and women keep speaking out. And, per the below, women beware loud male feminists! I can think of two progressives in particular, proclaimed bisexual males, who were two of the slimiest sexists I know. (Though having had a lot of bisexual boyfriends, I'm not putting down all bisexuals.) Though, if I search my memory, another 10 or 15 "progressives" will pop into memory. Ooops, three more just did. And at least a few libertarian men proclaim themselves to be feminists. And Ooops! the two who came immediately to mind were the first to scream TERF at me. (You can ask them what THEY mean. I mean TOTALLY EXCEPTIONAL RADICAL FEMALE. ) Anyhoo... couple relevant articles. "Ban Male Feminists" at Splinter"Women shouldn’t trust the men who call themselves allies" at Washington Post [...]



Perverting libertarian decentralism

2017-08-24T17:03:38.334-04:00

Because of all the sexist harassment at Wikipedia when I was editing it, I never did finish and put up my article on the phrase "Libertarian Decentralism", it's history, different meanings and, IMHO, its best, most libertarian meaning.  I will be finishing it soon for re-vamped Secession.net and one or more other Wikis.  I'll be particularly motivated now because of the perversion of the idea recently promoted by Mises Institute president Jeff Deist.During my days editing Wikipedia I had the misfortune to have to deal with a couple of haters of libertarians who wrote highly biased and exaggerated stories about  a number of libertarians, especially those connected with the Mises Institute.  Their assertions usually were exaggerated and rarely were supported by the sometimes questionable sources they provided.  Of course, I heard enough about the Ron Paul newsletters over the years and certainly opined enough that they should out the idiot who wrote the most obnoxious entries and do mea culpa for publishing his screeds. But I had gotten the impression they'd reformed any such rank stupidity.Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell and Murray Rothbard, among others, have been a lot more culturally conservative than I am, and more interested in appealing to the right. As a former liberal Democrat I'm more interested in reaching out to independents and liberals -- and making sure those strays from the GOP know that women will fight for reproductive rights!  The Mises group also are annoyingly obsessed with the states rights of the confederate states and bashing unionist Abraham Lincoln. Since I emphasize individual rights today, I don't spend too much time thinking about states rights issues of 156 years ago! However, in the last couple years some libertarians have over-reacted with increasingly vicious rhetoric to growing big government encroachment on religion and individual rights and oppressive political correctness on campus.  Especially annoying to all has been the enforcement of the latter by vicious black bloc/Antifa street violence suppressing speech. Violence begets violence. I had seen some wack jobs making joke memes online about throwing leftists and leading libertarians out of helicopters. But I didn't realize how bad it had become on an intellectual level until I heard about Jeff Deist's speech a few days after he gave it in July 2017. Here's my Facebook statement which I spammed to all sorts of libertarian groups.  Its goal is to raise consciousness, not to destroy people, like so many "liberal", "progressives", leftists, etc. try to do today.  Of course, my memes may be more examples of tough love than consciousness raising. Nobody's perfect!Carol Moore comment on Jeff Deist presentation “For a New Libertarian” which he delivered at the 2017 Mises University. As a long-time libertarian decentralist promoting subsidiarity, nullification, self-determination and secession by communities of common interest, someone who actually worked with Murray Rothbard in the 1979-82 era, I was disappointed by Jeff Deist's sloppy and off-target presentation relevant to the topic. He doesn't seem to understand the difference between the right to be parochial in your self-determining community vs. some deluded view you have to be parochial to create a libertarian society! Sure, most humans retain what Deist calls their “stubborn ideas about family and tribe”, about “religion and faith”, “ethnic or nationalist or cultural alliances” and even their “sexual hangups and bourgeois values.” However, what matters to libertarians is that despite these attributes, humans adhere to the non-aggression principle, the Golden Rule advanced in similar language by most religious and many philosophical views. Libertarians do not see being (again De[...]



Summer fun mocking alt-white boys - Part II

2017-08-23T19:08:57.477-04:00

Continued from Part I, a review of the Alt-right attempted invasion of the Libertarian Party and my MEME pushback - and LP's post-Charlottesville demand they resign from the party.  Just because it's great to see the chronology. I just hope it is END OF STORY!!!Over the last 10 years a lot of young people have come into the libertarian movement and party influenced by Arch Abortion Prohibitionist Ron Paul and most of them are not right wing or alt-right or white nationalists. (Some white nationalist actively support abortion for non-whites!) So I made this meme as a play on a Ron Paul book title and cover.   Note that my tasks for the Pro-choice Libertarians group also have been severely restricted the last two months by dealing with this alt-right nonsense!  But I did make a couple relevant memes.And then there are the types of "libertarians" who think we should get rid of the non-aggression principle as the basis of the libertarian movement and of membership in the party. "Do not use force or fraud on others" is a variation of the "Do unto others" Golden Rule. So I have been whipping this one out frequently.Some libertarians started anti-racism and anti-fascism Facebook pages. In May Libertarian State Leadership Alliance 2017 National Conference presented its panel "Physically Removed, So to Speak: Making the LP Inhospitable to the Alt-Right and Other Nazis" with Josh Katz, Jody Weitzman, Mike Shipley, and Leslee Anne Petersen. I wrote a summary and distributed it widely.  The Libertarian Party twitter feed sent out a screenshot of the event. Several of us demanded stronger action.  allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="300" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bLbfZh9JRto?ecver=1" width="500">  I wasted more time reading about and being anxious about Trump's war threats and wondering if he's just looking for an excuse to impose martial law, a nice little war that won't start any nuclear war. I've got it: He'll invade Venezuela!!  With Trump's delusional dementia getting so much worse, it is scary to think the generals will end up running the US.  Even if Pence replaces Trump, will one of them run against him in 2020 and make it an official JUNTA with a bunch of his "Hoo Ya" military buddies?This June anti- Alt-right and Antifa meme was even more popular than the more recent one in my Part I of this two part posting.A lot of libertarians breathed a sigh of relief when Augustus Invictus joined the GOP. Maybe the LP Veteran Caucus would follow him back to the GOP!  Then came the weekend of August 11-13 and all hell broke lose in Charlottesville and online.  If you haven't see the HBO VICE NEWS video below, watch it.  Really shows this group of "alt-right" guys aren't just jerks with a few nut jobs thrown in. Or the relatively innocuous "League of the South" types of the early 2000s who would shut up any bigots who went spouting off publicly while they networked with libertarians and decentralists. (Looks like they've gone REAL bad too!) These groups are now organized and dangerous bigots.  A few individuals passed through the libertarian movement the last 10 years because they found it to be the most organized hardcore anti-government movement.  But happily they soon realized their kind of crazy wasn't wanted and left... Don't let the occasional libertarian-sounding rhetoric fool you.  It's pretty clear they want to obtain their ends through the organized violence of the state just like the Demopublicans and the Bernie bros. (Oh, Geez. They helped Augustus Invictus and his new buddy Richard Spencer just proved it by issuing this incredibly statist "alt-right" "Charlottesville Statement". "Liberty" isn't there. And their ethno-centrism doesn't mention their right to secede int[...]



Summer fun mocking alt-white boys - Part I

2017-08-18T13:10:44.651-04:00

One likes to think one can be creative and not have to waste too much time reacting against the stupidity other people are engaged in. It's nice to fantasize one's brilliantly rendered alternatives will lead them from ignorance to wisdom.  And then there is reality.  You get pissed off and end up mocking them for being jerks. Oh, well.Worse, after six weeks my revamped/updated/ Secession.net in Wordpress STILL looks like this. With a one sentence intro.But I've been dealing with disgust/frustration about the "invasion of the body snatchers" of "alt-right" and "white nationalist" types into the Libertarian Party, especially over the last 6 months or so; they came complete with threats of violence against those who oppose them (mostly in the state of Florida where they took over a county party).  Happily, their invasion has been resisted and the LP finally told them to resign (quotes in Part II).This invasion is not as bad as when the "black bloc" strategy of doing property damage and fighting with cops invaded and DID take over "progressive" movements in 2000. There was barely any resistance at all! I was one of the resisting "peace nazis" and later wrote an ebook about it all: "The Return of Street Fightingman".  Since then the black bloc organizers (some of them doubtless government provocateurs) have infiltrated the Occupy Movement, LGBT movements, Black Lives Matter, and turned itself into the "Antifa" (anti-fascist) movement. And it has become an even more violent movement.  We've all seen the campus violence in Oregon and California and elsewhere to shut down any differing conservative opinions, as well as those of feminists who question the new "gender ideology."This violence only aggravated and encouraged violence by "alt-right" guys - egged on by the seriously demented Donald J. Trump, of course.  So now half of them are becoming out and out white nationalists.  You create what you hate evidently.  And we saw the disgusting torch marches and bigoted chants, the street fighting between left and right, and the death of one woman in Charlottesville, VA last weekend as the result.Of course, it's mostly males, left and right, looking for any excuse to prove their manhood. (You too, Bernie Bros.) Anyway, I'll just share some of my MEMES and a few comments below. You can check out my public posts at Facebook/CarolMoore1776  And those are just a tiny sampling of all I've written on various closed and open FB groups.  "I'm carol and I'm a FB addict..." Tomorrow I'll practice self-control, I promise!!Last year I had heard some vague tales about the obnoxious "Augustus Invictus", a Florida lawyer who was rejected as an LP senatorial candidate in 2016 because he was too right-wing. Here's my meme about him created this early this summer. (Good news, last month quit the party and joined the GOP!)And then the "alt-right' phrase started being applied to some of his fellow travelers who were very disruptive at a couple state libertarian events this winter.   Then in May the alt-right created and operated "LP Veteran Caucus" went nuts because the LP Vice-Chair Arvin Vohra dared to point out angrily that those who joined the military just for the job and benefits, knowing they'd be sent to kill innocent people, were little more than murders.  That's when I discovered and exposed the kind of crap some of them were posting at their FB page. Like this (removed after a couple of us made a big stink). Then there was this "joke" threat one of them posted vs. Arvin.Then Carol really went into meme overdrive. Continued Part II[...]



"Creating a Non-Violent World Through War Tax Resistance"

2017-06-17T17:41:59.655-04:00

Another war tax resister and I wrote a popular leaflet for National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee way back around 1985ish. 

Happily, they asked us to update it and I was willing, so here it is. Fresh and ready for the Trumpian times to come. You can print it out yourself or wait for them to get back from the printers.



Spank me! Forgot Video of March 2017 AIPAC Protest!

2017-06-17T17:45:23.837-04:00

Yow, how could I have forgotten to upload this one.  Jews and Palestinians and Peaceniks kicking some AIPAC butt.  And I only had to send out a few notices, as the younger generation takes over from us oldsters!  The beginning of the video below does a quick review of past efforts vs. AIPAC, including several early ones proposed by me and taken up by our now defunct local grassroots peace group.

Oh, that's right I put it at my Youtube/TheIsraelLobby channel where I collected all my relevant videos and started putting up new ones. They were overwhelming Youtube/CarolMoore.

Two New Women's March videos

2017-06-17T17:43:01.344-04:00

Carol continues typing out reams on Facebook and connecting with thousands of libertarians, decentralists, feminists and secessionists. So much so I'm about to finally update Secession.net to Wordpress.  Only took 10 years of promises!

I've accumulated all sorts of disjointed posts that properly organized make up exciting stories of Fighting Irish Carol and Other Women not taking any guff. Nope, we're taking on sexists, forced birthers, alt-rightists, Trumpeteers, Bernie boys, PC warriors - and real live warmongers - etc. Lots of archiving so my biographers can put together the stories! Yuk Yuk

Meanwhile I did make two videos of January 21, 2017 Woman's March. The first nine minute one is called "Women's March 2017: challenging supremacist patriarchy". On Youtube/CarolMoore. It explicitly calls for women right and left to dump the demopublicans and the gun-toting "Bernie Boys" and become some variety of libertarian decentralist.  And includes a nice reading list.  The musical background is the song that is included in the second music video - "Speak truth to power" on Youtube/CarolMooreSongs.  I wrote the song in 1986 for a libertarian song contest. I won! IMHO, definitely most melodic of the several "Speak Truth to Power" songs on youtube that were written after that date. ENJOY!

Amazing future - if we don't get nuked first

2017-04-23T20:46:39.065-04:00

Too good not to make sure it's shared. (Link here; formatting a bit better below) Udo Gollub at Messe Berlin.April 22, 2016 · Berlin, Germany · I just went to the Singularity University summit and here are the key learnings.In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they got bankrupt.What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 year - and most people don't see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on paper film again?Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superiour and got mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.Welcome to the Exponential Age.Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties.Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. In the US, young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less laywyers in the future, only specialists will remain.Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 time more accurate than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. Our kids will never get a driver's licence and will never own a car. It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking space into parks. 1,2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 100,000km, with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 10 million km. That will save a million lifes each year.Most car companies might become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels. I spoke to a lot of engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; they are completely terrified of Tesla.Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.Electric cars will become mainstream until 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all cars will run on electric. Elec[...]



NARAL starts DIRTY, ROTTEN, SEXIST SCOUNDRELS campaign

2017-04-19T20:11:21.260-04:00

Just got this in email. Since it's not on their web page, thought I'd share it here and tweet it. Here's link to where to report your favorite scoundrels.

Otherwise, obviously still enslaved by Facebook. But screen saving everything important in case Trump orders them to Persona Non Grata all of us troublemakers! (Like after he declares martial law after he bombs North Korea - which responds with nukes. Pretty much what saavy libertarians and peaceniks expected!)

And a few more pro-choice memes... Last one mine. Busy finishing off some projects at Pro-ChoiceLibertarians.Net and then YES! I will work on CarolMoore.Net and Secession.Net.

March 10, 2017 Standing Rock Indian protest vs. Dakota Pipeline
Maybe a 1000 activists, mostly out of towners, at this one. Some great indigenous costumes.



These (state brainwashed) Kids Today!

2017-03-23T23:24:29.723-04:00

Read an infuriating article from University of Pennsylvania student newsletter whining about "'Women are being erased' under Trump" - when they made it quite clear they were big supporters of the transgender movement which has relentlessly tried to erase women born as women. Just sharing this edited version of my ranting reply to keep the blog alive. (Wonder if the snowflakes will delete it.) I'll even link from FB (aka freaking facebook - bleah, crappy archiving for compulsive archivists.)  Enjoy... Plus a few memes for emphasis.This article would be humorous if it wasn't so sad.  Because of transgender ideologues physicians can't say "mother" or "breastfeeding" in England any more - how long before here?; pro-choice women mentioning vaginas or wearing pink pussy hats or carrying "don't tread on my uterus" graphics are called "transphobic"; abortion clinics become womens clinics; and women's clinics become what - all gender clinics?Women who dare to note that women born as women, their experiences as well as their natural bodies, are being erased are called TERFs (Trans exclusionary radical feminists). That acronym often is used in the insult/threat "DIE, TERF, DIE" delivered over the last few years to thousands of women online. Women who hold forums just to discuss these issues in the most sympathetic and inclusionary manner are shouted down until police remove the offenders. A new woman’s library in Canada was invaded and property destroyed on its opening night just because one of the founders had criticized transgender ideology; protesters called for removal of books that had nothing to do with transgenderism which they obviously hadn't read. Police had to be called.And let's not forget the erasure of gay men and lesbian woman, i.e., all of them who now are being called transgender at an early age and rushed into hormone therapy, before they figure out - "Oh, I'm really gay."  Too many parents may prefer transgender children to gay or lesbian ones! Or are gays and lesbians no longer part of the "intersectionality" philosophy??If one woman on that panel had dared to mention even one of these factoids she would have been shouted down and probably asked to leave the stage.  How many good Democratic women were too disgusted to vote for Hillary because of her support for confused little boys sharing shower rooms with their daughters or any convicted sex offender who claims to be a woman following them into a big box store woman's rest room?  My guess is it was AT LEAST 80,000 in the four usually democratic states that Trump one by 78,000 votes.When I was in college in the sixties we had a lot of ideas about peace and love and transcending sex stereotypes and building community, ones many of us still have today. And we were on the lookout to make sure the future 1984 was not like the book “1984".I'm sad to see today's college kids are about "diversity of tactics" and attacking anyone whose ideas are a smidgen different and reinforcing sexual stereotypes through hormone treatments of 7 year olds and making sure only your community counts and the rest are policed by federal law and jackbooted thugs to make sure they are politically correct. Don't worry, it's not your fault. It's the fault of all the power hungry bureaucrats out to win big paychecks, promotions, perks and pensions by manipulating your lives with whatever ideology screws with people's minds the most.  And they finally have found it - instead of "1984" it is "2017."  "War is peace" and "men with penises can be women".  What a collapse [...]



INPUT! INPUT! for my poor neglected blog...

2017-03-04T18:39:31.693-05:00

Here's some of my fun memes of last month...




Poor neglected blog...

2017-03-04T18:29:53.680-05:00

Neglected for the so much more ephemeral Facebook pro-choice and libertarian and uppity women organizing facebook posts and twitter tweets. Sure, I screenshot everything twice a month for posterity. At least til Trump gets us nuked in the new war he and Israel's fascist leader Bibi Netanyahu are planning vs. Iran. (Russia has a military alliance with Iran. Guess mainstream media never mentioned that, did it?)Plus I am trying to get my old websites updated. (So hopefully they'll all look cool like this one I'm working on.) So pardon me if I just do a few quick screen shots of some recent postings and memes.[...]



Women Protest against Sexism - and for Abortion Rights!

2017-02-08T12:44:58.698-05:00

Carol & pro-choice libertarians signTwo and half weeks ago - January 21 - 500,000 mostly women protested the rank sexism of newly inaugurated President Trump. Most of us were against his most dangerous agenda, outlawing abortion from conception. This despite the fact polls show a large majority of Americans want to keep abortions legal:  Quinnipiac University national poll and Pew Research Poll. d/Under Roe v. Wade abortion is legal in all cases in the first two trimesters and to save life of mother or remove dead or dying fetus. Most late term abortions due to women having inadequate access to high priced abortions that it takes them time to arrange. All due to the vicious laws passed by abortion prohibitionists who inaccurately call themselves "ProLife."  Something our Pro-Choice Libertarians group emphasizes and other pro-choice groups should too.See all my photos here. And below are some particularly good pro-choice signs. [...]



OOOPS! It's 2017 already! A couple January posts

2017-01-16T21:16:44.892-05:00

What the hey...  Let's start with one from today... The Anti-Abortionist Boobs Memes debate started again when some guys started ooggling one of their memes.  I responded with this meme:

Plus other stuff... now hopefully back to our regularly scheduled blah blah blah...





OOOPS! It's 2017 already! December Posts

2017-02-08T10:33:09.376-05:00

Here's a couple good ones from Facebook, December 2016.* * * * I also was on quite a Pro-Choice Libertarian binge in December, debating with some anti-abortionist women who try to show how cool they are to "sex positive" young women (and male voyeurs) by showing their cleavage. Yet elsewhere they have insulted and shamed and defacto terrorizing women through calling abortion murder and making it clear the law should deal with murder.  One admits she tries to get women to talk about their abortions and makes them feel bad about it. What psychotic hypocrits! I may yet do a whole website page on them once I FINALLY put carolmoore.net into wordpress... And one of them is a born-again Christian who had her own ministry to women who had had abortions.  Very mentally deranged... (my mock on her, not her actual meme!)Can you tell that I believe that extremism in defense of women's control of their own bodies is NO VICE?? To paraphrase Karl Hess who wrote "liberty" for some presidential candidate who lost. I just applied it more specifically to women's rights - which these right wing dick pricks are putting under assault yet again. And women are getting mad![...]



OOOPS! It's 2017 already! November Posts

2017-01-14T11:22:20.897-05:00

Haven't been blogging lately. Too busy with often lower quality posts on more ephemeral Facebook. (Though I religiously archive posts.)  So here's some of my better FB posts since last time I blogged here. Starting with this post, to this Federalist link.
And then there is this:

* List of Military Nuclear Accidents
