What’s Wrong With Hawaii

The Superferry fiasco once again measures the state of where we are -- in the world, and in the development of a state of consciousness: A few irrational people are allowed to act out their threats of intimidation and bullying to bring any really impactful progressive idea to a halt - - because it hasn't gotten the approval from the “godfathers” who are the new monarchs of this “democratic” society.

So a few useful idiots crowd out all the voices of common sensibilities so that they are shocked that any decision but that which would be obvious to any rational being -- is overruled in favor of the arbitrary, reminding everyone again, that this is not a republic we live in, but still the tribal turf of long ago, in which brute arbitrary power stirred up by the demagogues, trumps reason.

It is not accidental that these exercises in arbitrary rule are made regularly, if no longer routinely -- along with the cooperation of its most powerful agencies of thought control -- the media, schools and universities, which are used to propagate the ignorance and obedience, and whip up to the appropriate fury at critical moments. And so, the course of every thinking person growing up in Hawaii, is to escape this tyranny of thought and conformity, to where individual merit and ability can be expressed -- without fear of its brutal suppression.

The original intent of government in the United States of America is to foster enterprise and commerce -- and not to suppress it, and ultimately be the only provider of services, goods, and information. That is the danger of government in Hawaii: we see that in the tale of two ferries. How one, run by government, is allowed to operate without restraints and with no limits to cost while providing any benefit -- even taking twice as long to make a trip than going by the usual manner, is heartily approved and lauded by the local media, while those wishing to run a private enterprise, are prohibited from doing so -- after expending their capital to build the facilities to do their business, which will thereby, be commandeered by government approved enterprises as their own windfall and capital, as in many other tyrannies still operating in the modern world .

Knowing this, despite the many rich people who do live at least part of the time in the Islands, philanthropy is almost non-existent because of these well-known abuses -- to be run mainly for the benefit of its trustees -- rather those intended beneficiaries. So even while insisting it is “for the keiki,” schools are run mainly for the benefit of lifetime sinecures for the teachers -- who without such positions, most would be incapable of doing anything else. But since most would be willing to “do anything” for the money, many go back to school and become lawyers, and then move on to politics in Hawaii.

So it is not accidental that the laws of Hawaii, are designed to guarantee lifetime security and benefits for the lawyers of hawaii -- even when it means creating the countless daily problems, arguments and barriers to doing the simplest thing. Therefore, most intelligent and productive people just drop out of the political process and have as little to do with those hoaxes and shams as possible. Which is precisely the way these tyrants of the petty, want it. Only by deliberately keeping the pond small, can they remain “big people on campus.”

I'd write a book about it, but Ayn Rand already did -- "Atlas Shrugged."

The Press's (mainstream media) abuse of power is their delight in convincing us that anything truly world class, is a grievous danger to society (and the status quo), while convincing us that the mediocre and trite is the "greatest story ever told."

If they can convince us of that, they can convince us of anything. So while the majority will remain easily manipulated and deceived, the thinking-edge minority, has already moved on to question how it is they think what they know to be true.

Repetition as the conventional wisdom -- and providing studies and polls to reinforce that that is the right thinking.

Mass communications is not rocket science; it merely requires being ruthless enough to use what one knows about human gullibilities -- and exploit them for one's exclusive benefit. Most people will not cross that line.

Those that do, are sitting in their predictable positions of "information" dispensation. Most of them think they are high up in their hierarchies -- but are merely pawns allowing others to do their thinking for them until one day, they hope to be telling everybody else what to do -- unmercifully.

but that is not the prescription for actualizing life as a citizen of any civilization -- just to be bossing everybody else around. Hopefully, we've come at least that far.
