the news with theory, analysis, and interpretation

Just published an interview with Mr Larry Bowen, president of the USS Liberty Veterans Association, we discussed the deliberate Israeli attack in 1967 on the USS Liberty

It looks like I will soon be interviewing the Brazilian ambassador to the United States so the information war which is now under way is getting pretty intense more intense by the day

Last month on May 10 WAM in the 24 hr period had 102 countries visiting the web site according to Google Analytics so the information war is now very intense

I have just been told by the EU not to say that I will soon be interviewing the ambassador of the European Union to the United States we will see if I do talk to him

The Czech ambassador in Washington has agreed to talk to me again so there will soon be another interview with him published here I like him he has been very impressive and honest

WAM media:

WAM media started with 1 web site but 20 years later I have broadened its power to include 4 more web sites

WAM media [World Affairs Monthly] got started in 2002 and in Jan 2003 I presented audio and video files years before the incompetent Ashkenazi media in the United States

It is always difficult to say what is going on in the world but this is my job and this is something we all must consider and understand and analyze

Vladimir Putin and his advisors shrewdly calculated Russia's income from its vast reserves of crude oil & other valuable natural resources would be the critical support for military incursions

The destruction of Ukraine appears to be taking place now at a pretty steady pace and I expect the Russian military incursion to be pretty much indefinite

There is the question of escalation in Ukraine as the Russians will likely not tolerate much intervention there or efforts to stop them from reacquiring Ukraine

It appears the Pakistani state is going to find it difficult if not impossible to service its external debt I will have to look into this and get the facts but this appears to be the case

Imran Khan the Pakistani cricket player who was just removed as prime minister of Pakistan did preside over the rapid accumulation of debt this is why he was removed

It is very likely the Russians are using military force to get back control of Ukraine so they can prepare a larger military incursion into Turkey and then go further south to Arabian oil

1945-2022 you could argue that the Pale of Settlement having moved to the Western Hemisphere has had ample resources to fully build out but now this is ending, the build out

I have keen interest in interviewing the Taliban leaders but of course they do not speak fluent English so perhaps I will focus on their spokesman Mr Suhail Shaheen

I know it is difficult for most to admit but the fundamental problem as I have been saying for a long time is that the USA is run by criminals

Discussing reality is very dangerous & the Ashkenazi Jews who control the United States do everything they can to suppress free speech but now WAM is leading the information war this is very exciting

It is shocking I know but it is likely that the war in Ukraine will escalate and there will be monstrous destruction of much of Ukraine and nothing can really be done to avoid this

Human History: 1) Pagan Beliefs > 2) Monotheism/God Beliefs > 3) Developmental Neuroscience/1920s-1930s German Bavaria/Eugenics/"Development Dictatorship”

Jun 08, 2022

It is true that I never really had a really serious devotion to the study of history and that's for a simple reason – history is often just one event after another. History is written by some people, usually the ones who prevail. Anyway, history is for the literate and most of the time in history there was little literacy or even none at all. We just speculate and do our best.

I am nonetheless interested in history and while I would not call my expertise high level it is decent enough. So I feel competent to build some theory and today I will share with you my latest thinking about human history. The trajectory of human history.

The basis for this interesting speculation is neuroscience, in particular developmental neuroscience. The hominids are the more intelligent mammals, their brains are large, their cortex is large, and their developmental period is extended. The time in the womb is long but the time spent in development is rather much longer. For the human, the real homo sapiens, the 9 months in the uterus is astonishing enough but the 20-25 years of neurological development – after birth – is almost freaky and obviously very long and totally unprecedented. No other mammal comes even close.

I have divided human history into three phases. Below are several images which describe my basic theory. It was in 2007 that I realized the most important variable in human life is the cost of transmitting information from brain to brain. Communication. How efficiently is this accomplished? How “expensive” is this communication? Lower the cost of transmitting information from brain to brain and you will have an impressive advance of the animal's phenotype and ultimately genotype. The human mammal has clearly excelled at this – first with the invention of the printing press and now with the invention of the internet [combined with computer/semiconductor technology and satellite technology].

Indeed, this would appear to be the reason the human mammal is such a fearsome and dangerous predator/killer – not only of other creatures on Earth but also hominids and humans. Indeed, I have argued that the human animal is the epitome of an animal that periodically goes through bottlenecks, large and powerful bottlenecks. I have argued for some 10 years now that we are the supreme “bottleneck animal” – this is why we are so advanced and powerful and intelligent. There has been vicious competition among hominids and only the most impressive and powerful ones have survived. The rest are gone, wiped out, extinct.

Put simply, our prowess has meant we are able to increase our numbers rapidly – we have mastery over the environment and overcome the challenges we face – and so our population becomes impressively large compared to other mammal populations. We then enter a bottleneck period which features very harsh conditions and our numbers are reduced quite dramatically, perhaps even up to 90%. This is human history, in my opinion. I theorize we have passed through perhaps some dozen very large and powerful bottlenecks in our history.

Our mind, our view of the situation out there, is shaped by our brain's cognition. This is obvious. We think, we speculate, we form opinions, we have beliefs. I am going to argue here that we first formed “pagan beliefs” which were very accepting of the natural course of events. Pagan beliefs did not restrict the human animal very much. Barbarism might be an appropriate description of pagan beliefs. The vast majority of human history clearly featured pagan beliefs. Yes some sort of worship but a very primitive one – with very few restrictions on behavior. Mysticism was predominant. Ignorance was widespread and indeed there was not much else.

Then several thousand years ago there appeared some men who argued that there was only one God – that we had to accept the wisdom or knowledge of this one God. These men claimed to be the special messenger of this one God. Kind of ridiculous but ignorance was still pretty widespread and so the human animal brain was not very powerful. The beliefs were accepted and there was, to put it bluntly, a lot of scamming and deceit. The God Business. Judaism, Christianity, Islam. They had their prophets or wise men, or sons of God. They preached and they worked their flock. A very lucrative operation both in terms of income and also aggression – combat and war. Knowledge was improving, not very much but it was impressive compared to the extraordinary ignorance of the past.

Now we are entering the final run of the brain's development. Transmitting information from brain to brain is very inexpensive – almost without cost. Knowledge is predominant and it is becoming more and more powerful by the day. The ancient beliefs of the past thousands of years are interesting but increasingly they appear pretty much ridiculous. Conning people, scamming them, persuading them to worship a particular God is not so easy anymore. Indeed, it is quite difficult. The development of the human brain is all important. Well, that is a wild exaggeration. Better to say that it is becoming all important – or destined to become all important.

The Germans in Bavaria in the 1920s-1930s were on to something, they were generally correct – they wanted to achieve great things and build a sophisticated and modern version of the Roman Empire. No doubt they were ahead of their time. They failed but I predict their basic arguments will prevail and indeed these arguments will become overwhelmingly powerful and widely accepted. Beliefs they are not. Rather they were incipient science. Raising the achievements of the human animal to greater and greater heights – their main aim. Suppressing the stupid and foolish expressions of humanity. Eugenics will become very sophisticated – a science of eugenics. I will also argue that “development dictatorship” – I coined that expression about 25 years ago – will become widely accepted and implemented.

“Democracy” and “republican government” is a historical relic, a total failure in most respects. Development of the human brain is the all important goal as well as the development of the human “economy” and environment. We will do what is necessary to enhance the development of the human brain and the economy. Any activity or any behavior which depresses this development will be removed or even destroyed – only development will be tolerated. What will not be tolerated is anything that suppresses our development. The images below will help you gain an understanding of my theory and predictions.

By the way, I am having a little fun. You will see below an interview I did with Mr Donald Trump, back in February 2008. Published in WAM Trump came to me "unsolicited" and wanted me to review his book Think Big and Kick Ass which I did. I asked him for a telephone interview but he would only agree to an email Q&A so I agreed to the Q&A. The result is below. It's pretty good, pretty impressive.
