Rhyming Historical Destruction
Studying history objectively is impossible. Everybody has filters and biases. It’s widely known that people who study history bring their unconscious biases with them. It’s kind of like how we choose to read from certain news sources that validate our confirmation bias.

How Two Academics Are Trying to Break the Outrage Cycle | Vanity Fair
Given the Illuminati-like nature of Helena, America in One Room might seem like a post-Trump civility prayer cooked up by power elites who worship at the altar of high centrism. But Deliberative Polling has been used 108 times in 28 different countries since 1994 to foster healthier political dialogue. Fishkin and Diamond, both Helena members, have conducted Deliberative Polls in societies far more riven by racial and ethnic divides—places like Northern Ireland, Uganda, and Bulgaria. In Northern Ireland, in 2007, a representative group of Protestants and Catholics convened for a Deliberative Poll in the town of Omagh on the subject of school integration. After the poll ended, the percentage of attendees believing Protestants were “open to reason” increased from 36% to 52% and the percentage believing Catholics were “open to reason” jumped from 40% to 56%, according to a Financial Times story at the time. That same year, more than 200 Bulgarians met in Sofia to participate in a Deliberative Poll on how to improve the lives of the country’s impoverished Roma population. When the meetings finished and participants were surveyed again, those who thought “the Roma should live in separate Roma neighborhoods” dropped from 43% to 21%. Bulgarians who said “Roma schools should be closed and all the children should be transported by buses to their new school” went from 42% to 66%.

Trading Fear For Money
I saw this really messed up horror movie the other night. It was about this guy who was an insane killer, that pretty much lived inside of a hallucination. It started out with this guy jogging down some country road.

Hallucination Instinct
During the early middle ages in Europe, life was very chaotic. One reason was that for about 300 years, the Vikings had a short term, lighting attack based, military superiority. They had these thin boats that didn’t need a lot of depth. They could sail up rivers, deep into Europe.
