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 video

The Oligarchy (3:30)

Another Robert Reich video
explains Trump's role in the Oligarchy ...

he is the "divider" (3:23)

This is an extremely important point that Reich is making.
In order to effectively fight against our greatest enemy (the Oligarchy)
we must first understand our enemy
and how that enemy uses our fellow citizens against us.

Atheists are no longer the least electable candidates ...

Socialists are

Looking deeper ...

I have exposed Gallup in the past for its biased pro-Christian interpretations
when polls didn't go the way they had hoped.
This poll from an organization which has no credibility (in my opinion)
makes me realize that they don't just have a Christian bias,
but a conservative Christian bias.

The greatest enemy the Oligarchs face are socialists.
Socialism is society's attempt to defend itself against the Oligarchs.
I believe that Socialists were added to this list
in a deliberate attempt to smear them.

In the 1930's, ex-NY governor Alfred E. Smith betrayed his country ...

and joined the Oligarchy

I loved it when FDR used Smith's own words against him.

Which bastard began taxing social security benefits?

That would be ... Reagan

Notice that this story from Fox "News" came a decade before Trump.
They probably wish they could delete this.

Farron Cousins video (4:23) on Fox News viewers v. everyone else.

Unsurprisingly - Fox Freaks live in an alternate universe

And this poll (from the conservative Wall Street Journal)
didn't even ask about beliefs
such as climate change or evolution.

Venezuela

Guaido plans to privatize Venezuela's oil
(transfer its wealth from the people to the rich)
That's why America "named" him president of Venezuela

Excellent background report on what has been happening in Venezuela ... and why

This is a carbon-copy of CIA activity in Iran in 1951.

My, my, but they are getting desperate.

Control of the judiciary ... at all levels

Republicans don't work for their constituents: they work for their donors.

Trump continues to support his white supremacist base any way he can:

Trump blocks the U.S. from nominating anyone to the U.N. racism committee

Who could have predicted the return of the KKK, even just a few decades ago?
America has sunk to a very very dark place.

BATTLE STATIONS!

Thomas Piketty's study on inherited wealth.

It's success is inversely proportional to the success of socialism

The great successes of Socialism in the 20th century
cut inherited wealth roughly in half.
But the rich have fought back viciously
and have recovered about half of what they had lost.
