State Of Our End Times-Bob Davis Podcast 804

An embattled governor. Infighting in Washington. Raging arguments about identity. It sure looks to me like the wheels are coming off the bus these days. Learn more in State Of Our End Times-Bob Davis Podcast 804.

Politicians Off The Rail

As our so called public officials go off the rails our expectations that ‘government’ will solve all our problems increase.

Over Hype and Talked To Death

It’s especially relevant that the media breathlessly awaits a formality called The State Of The Union, like it’s the SuperBowl. Everything is Over hyped. Over analyzed. Talked to death. It’s surreal.

“Officials” Running Amok

Moreover as these politicians run amok they get more petty every day. As a result we’re not dealing with the most pressing issues of our time. A rising China. Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Data Privacy and The Internet. Causes, solutions and political effects of Economic Inequality. Existential threats from many different places.

What About Doing Some Work. Anyone?

In addition, what about trade wars, economic growth, debt, immigration and the growth of regional and major powers acting in our hemisphere. Anyone?

Daily Two Minutes Of Hate

Finally our daily two minutes hate leads our focus on smaller and smaller things. Leaders don’t lead. Everything becomes an illusion. Meanwhile somewhere someone or something is permanently damaged.

Emotional Scarring

In conclusion have we become so scarred from our anger and frustration we find it more difficult to act? Anger and Irritation turns to depression.

End Times Prophecy?

Are we living out a prophecy? What happens when there is a real crisis because of all this folly?

Disaster Predicting Future-Titanic-World War I-Bob Davis Podcast 790

More time to think during the holiday season spurs some strange ideas for podcasts. A disaster and a new movie form the basis for Disaster Predicting Future-Titanic-World War I-Bob Davis Podcast 790.

The Titanic

April 15th 1912 was the date of one of the best known disasters in history. Only two years later World War One began.

Moreover did the Titanic disaster predict World War One?

They Shall Not Grown Old

Especially relevant is a new movie in limited release by Peter Jackson. “They Shall Not Grow Old” features digitally enhanced film and audio. The result is a stunning film that brings the world of one hundred years ago to life. Hear Jackson talk about the movie in Disaster Predicting Future-Titanic-World War I-Bob Davis Podcast 790.

Unseen and Multiple Causes of Disaster

First of all the causes of disasters are almost always multiple and elusive. A coal bunker fire, inferior steel and an iceberg brought down the Titanic. Also poor leadership, the industrial revolution and secret alliances were just some of the causes of a disastrous war.

Europe Was The Ship That Could Not Sink

Most noteworthy the Elite of Europe seemed invincible in August of 1914. Europe was the ship that could not sink. By 1918, economies were destroyed. Kings abdicated. Great Britain never recovered its financial losses as the result of the first world war. Learn more in Disaster Predicting Future-Titanic-World War I-Bob Davis Podcast 790.

Complex Dangers

I believe disasters can be predictive because they reveal complex dangers we may not see.

Disaster Predicting Future-Titanic-World War I-Bob Davis Podcast 790 simply asks questions. Is the power structure in our world an elite similar to the European elite one hundred years ago? What kinds of new technologies harbor hidden dangers?

What Do We Not See?

Finally what are we not seeing that can lead to a major turning point in history?

Conformists Open Road-New Social Media Puritans-Podcast 729

Do you believe in individual freedom? These days governments, institutions and big companies act as though they make the rules. Most of all when it comes to rights. Learn why I say this in Conformists Open Road-New Social Media Puritans-Podcast 729.

A Post About The Republican Convention Is A No No?

I covered the state republican convention in Duluth, Minnesota. My post included a title referring to the Minnesota Republican Party and a photo I took of conventioneers. No political advertising in the podcast or post. In addition, I don’t do political advertising. Podcast 728 is an account of the convention and my observations about what I saw.

It is pure citizen journalism.

Blocked From Advertising

Podcast 728 got great response on social media, so I decided to advertise it. I was shocked when FaceBook blocked me from boosting that post.

Change Your Settings and Conform

Moreover Podcast 728 could not be advertised unless I changed The Bob Davis Podcasts FaceBook page settings to allow for ‘political advertising’. If I did this, all my boosted posts would contain a warning. Find out about it in Conformists Open Road-New Social Media Puritans-Podcast 729.

Maybe Artificial Intelligence Isn’t That Intelligent

I was not silenced by FaceBook but their silly rules did prevent me from promoting. What’s more I have the impression this review was conducted by robots rather than humans. If they actually reviewed my content any reasonable human would conclude the post was not political advertising. What FaceBook is doing is violating the 1st amendment rights of news organizations and citizen journalists.

Take a look and see what you think.

Fear Of Offense Drives Silly Rules

Especially relevant is the question of what happens when you can’t advertise or talk about any subject because of the fear of offending someone.

God Forbid anyone might see something they disagree with!

Yeah the Internet is an open road. For conformists only.

Rugged Individualism? Don’t Make Me Laugh!

While politicians talk about rugged individualism there seems to be less of it.

These days it’s rigged collectivism.

FaceBook Is The New K-Mart

In conclusion rules and regulations and blocks do not make for a free exchange of ideas. It is most noteworthy that content creators find ways around these rules anyway.

Microsoft used to be the software King Kong. Better companies and better ideas eventually eclipsed the Seattle Giant.  The lesson? Bad service and silly rules are a recipe for failure. Big Social Media is vulnerable to competitors that innovate and promote free speech.

What Do You Do When You Are On An Open Road?

Sometimes following the rules is the worst thing you can do.
