THE SKEPTIC ARENA


This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

Robert Reich explains why Republicans, Corporate Democrats, and the rich
are fighting with everything they've got ...

against Medicare-For-All

The most amazing part to me is how Republicans are able
to convince half the people (conservatives) to cut their own throats.

Behold the awesome power of ... brainwashing.

Conservative radio show host fired "mid-show" ...

for deserting Trump

Controlling communications is an important military tactic.
To keep the tens of millions of brainwashed zombies in line,
it is important to restrict what information they have access to,
and to give the appearance of a united front.

Animal cruelty to become a Federal crime

Quote from the article by Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa):
"it's appropriate that the federal government
have strong animal cruelty laws and penalties
as evidence shows that the deranged individuals who harm animals
often move on to committing acts of violence against people.
"

Unlike global warming, Republicans are quite willing
to accept evidence and scientific studies when ...

it doesn't cost the Big Boys any money

We are edging ever closer to nuclear war:

U.S. and Russia abandon nuclear arms control pact

Wars are very profitable for the Oligarchs.

Charles Schwab will buy smaller rival TD Ameritrade ...

gaining even greater control over online investing

The monopolization of America continues abated.
This quote from the article exposes the motivation:

"the brokerage industry has for years been coping with a price war
in the fight for retail investors’ dollars,
who are increasingly leaning away from picking and owning individual stocks
and more toward low-cost index funds and services that incorporate investment advice.
"

This will end the price war and investors will no longer benefit
from the competition that capitalism claims to supply.
But that competition only exists when backed by strong government regulation.
In our current economic climate, regulations and protections
are being stripped from the people by a government controlled by the wealthy.

Get your wallets out, boys

Canada

Mimicking Trump, Alberta's oil barons
try to free themselves from government control ...
so they can make more money:

Wexit (Western secession from Canada)

It's truly amazing how stupid the masses are.

Trump has shown the world just how just how easy it is to control them.
Now, these greedy Oligarchs don't even bother trying to hide it anymore.
They brazenly grab every penny they see
and somehow manage to convince the dumbass half of the population
to help them by acting as a buffer against the half that sees what is happening.

UPDATE 11/9/19

Wexit picking up steam fast

Robert Reich explains the true  divide in America ...

All of us v. The Oligarchy

But the battle will be won or lost
depending on whether or not
we can free the brainwashed half ...

from The Matrix.

We've been to the Moon many times.
That is nowhere near as difficult as unbrainwashing people.
But our survival as a species depends on us pulling off the impossible.

Bolivian president Evo Morales



America likely forced out, socialist  Bolivian president Evo Morales

The masses have no idea how to defend themselves against the Oligarchs.
Socialism is being defeated all over the world (falling like a row of dominoes).

More details - this time it wasn't the oil but the natural gas.

The Trump of Bolivia strikes!

And another domino falls in the relentless onslaught of the worldwide Oligarchy.
Whenever you see someone with a Bible in one hand and waving a Flag in the other ...

RUN!
