This was the plot of an episode of The Orville, & Black Mirror?

1984's Big Brother was a naive paradise compared to cyberpunk China today. Social media takes the next step.... To terror.

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/09/scien tific_studies_behind_obama_school_lunch_program_re tracted_.html

Some of these ideas, I use. The smaller plate thing. I do that.

But I now know that the food pyramid I was taught in school produces heart disease and diabetes. Probably obesity. And subsequent new versions are just as bad, if not worse.

Did "they" lie to us as a malicious attack on American health? No, they rode the fads of the day and made them law. Still do, and I don't see this news changing that.

But I feel free to mock the bad & politically motivated science, eggs, bacon, coffee, salt, all declared enemies of the State, and all exonerated by reality.

Worst part of this, combined with educational theory seemingly designed to not educate as much as possible, casts a shadow on all science.

I'll limit my complaints to Self Esteem insanity, and dumbing down tests & classes for the lowest common denominator. They are related.

The only Self Esteem study.... Or at least the First, was in Scientific American. Beginning with the discovery that a decades long schooling fad had zero, zip, nada actual studies to support it, researchers gave self esteem questionnaires to prisoners in a penitentiary. They discovered a negative correlation between self worth belief and real behavior. The people with the highest opinions of themselves were the most violent, wife beaters, child abusers, thugs, muggers, etc. All the folk that had the least reason to be happy with their lives, by any rational basis, we're the most smug in their opinions of their own worth and actions, and utter contempt for everyone else. Nothing in their lives was their fault. It was all oppression by others. They deserved it. And so forth, on a sliding scale to penitent self doubters that were non violent offenders.

By making school "easier" for stupid people, the stupid students learned very little. The smarter students don't have access to more, get bored, and become problems, often drugged after being "diagnosed" as some alphabet fad. Not by clinical experts, by harassed, overworked, teachers and school administrators. This is literal witchcraft. Cursing children to never learn.... On many levels. Cast the spell by inscribing the magic words, ADHD, Bipolar, Autistic, Dyslexic, etc. Upon the school records, and it is Done.

Yes, this is unfair to the many dedicated and wonderful teachers in our land. But they have to fight the Administration, who tend to be corrupt, incompetent, biased, autocrats, the witchcraft of psycho-fads & massive drug profits, and parents who use school as baby sitters for children they never read to or teach..... Anything, including basic human decency.

Bless them.

but...but...allowing them to pick and choose "good" students from other neighborhoods is discriminatory! Elitist! Unfair! How DARE they want to have a student body who wants to succeed??

This "inclusion" bull$hit has got to stop. Dunbar is a prime example - if you draw successful candidates, and the result is...well...SUCCESS...then why mess with it?

We need to stop looking at all this feel-good crap on the intake side, and start looking at the success/fail ratio on the output side.

No! Intentions, as publicized, are all that matters! Results are heteronormative.

https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/energy/a2 3341093/oyster-creek-nuclear-power-plant-shut-down

Another environmental disaster. The loss of clean power is a real problem.

There are no commercial nuclear plants in the U.S. that are based on designs younger than me.

I admit I was born when the coolest stuff on the planet was, the Blackbird, the Chevy, ( no need to mention a year, right? ) and a bunch of really pretty jet fighters, all in that era between the beginning of the Korean war and Vietnam.

Yes the newer plants from the 1970's have better electronics, ( albeit subject to EMP like the Old Coil Of Wire stuff isn't ) and fancier control rooms, but the reactor itself is still, almost always, a light water Uranium fission pile with rods that jam, parts that fall off, and in all the important mechanical ways, are just mild improvements on the Hanford Piles that were used to build a stockpile of nuclear bombs in the Cold War. No Fluidized bed systems, no Fail Safe designs, not one that can live when the flood waters reach the diesel generator.

Then we had Fukushima. A Tsunami, and generators on the basement. It's like nothing had been learned since the East Coast Blackout of 1965.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast_blackout_o f_1965

A major NYC hospital went down, not because the backup generators in the basement didn't turn on, not because they didn't have fuel, but because the emergency circuits did not have the sump pumps on them. The basement flooded, the generators went down......

In Response to Fukushima, Germany decided to stop using nuclear power, installed billions in wind and solar, then used coal to make the charade of renewable power in a cloudy land seem real. How many people suffer because of a "popular decision" to not have clean power that works when the weather is bad?

And the anti-nuke movement is directly traceable to Vladimir Putin's buddies who, to this day, work tirelessly to destroy western industrial might.

The left is trying hard to make it seem that way. "The 80s called. They want their foreign policy back".

Which is sort of at odds with their current "Russia Russia Russia" mantra.

Oh well. No one has ever accused the left of being consistent, other than consistently wrong.
