A story about me, a thief and the universe

Nokia Lumia 930

The universe is a very strange and mysterious place. Sometimes things happen that we can’t explain. Things that go against our understanding of what the universe is and how it works. Things that mainstream science cannot yet explain and indeed even refuses to look at.

We call it the “paranormal” — a term we use to label all strange and spooky experiences we have that we can’t find a rational explanation for. We like to think that we know a lot about the universe we live in, but the fact that we can’t explain these “paranormal” experiences is a clear indication of how little we really know. When things seem strange, don’t make sense, or seem contradictory, it simply means that we lack some very important information that would allow us to explain those phenomena in a rational way. I’m very certain of that because I know that the universe is fundamentally logical and thus rational.

Throughout my life I’ve had quite a few experiences that were very strange and often involved strange “coincidences” — what psychiatrist Carl Jung termed “synchronicity.” In a previous post where I discussed one such experience, I mentioned that I would share more of these experiences on this blog. So in this post I want to share one of the more noteworthy experiences I’ve had.

Ian Murdock and Police Brutality

Ian Murdock, founder of Debian — one of the popular Linux distros  — died on the 28th of December 2015 after confrontations with the police. From online reports, including a series of tweets by Murdock himself, it seems he was the victim of police brutality, after which he may have committed suicide. Although Murdock’s Twitter account has been taken offline, his tweets can still be found on the Internet; there’s a series of them on Pastebin, some of which I’m including below:

7:12pm: I am a white male, make a lot money, pay a lot of money in taxes, and yet their abuse is equally doned out. DO NOT CROSS THEM!

7:08pm: This was right after the female officer ripped off my underwear.. I guess that’s not considered rape if you’re not a woman being raped.

7:03pm: “We’re the police, we can do whatever the fuck we want..”

6:49pm: What does one have to get education wise to become a police officer.. asking for a friend.

6:42pm: The rest of my life is to fight against the police.. they are NOT friends, so don’t ever ever believe otherwise.

6:41pm: The police are uneducated, evil, and sadistic. Do not trust them.

6:33pm: (2/2) They are uneducated, bitter, and and only interested in power for its own sake. Contact me imurdock@imurdock.com if you can help. -ian

6:31pm: (1/2) The rest of my life will be devoted to fighting against police abuse.. I’m white, I made $1.4 million last year,

6:07pm: i’m hoping coming from a successful white guy it will help everyone

6:06pm: i’m going to post my case on my blog.. if anyone can post it on hacker news or wherever i would apprieciate it

5:48pm: Writing up my experience for others to hopefully prevent others from police abuse then you won’t hear from me again

5:45pm: shall i post pictures for all my bruises from my against the police officers?

5:36pm: then they pulled me out of my house and did it again

5:36pm: they followed me home

5:36pm: i had to go to the hospital

5:35pm: they beat the shit out of me twice, then charged me $25,000 to get out of jail for battery against THEM

5:34pm: if anyone wants to come over and see what the police did to me i would be more than happy for that

5:30pm: I’m not committing suicide today. I’ll write this all up first, so the police brutality ENDEMIC in this so call free country will be known.

5:27pm: Maybe my suicide at this, you now, a successful business man, not a NIGGER, will finally bring some attention to this very serious issue.

5:25pm: My career is over now, so I’ll be gone soon.

5:23pm: Quote: “We’re the police, we always win.”

While reading various of the news reports online, I couldn’t help thinking back to when Aaron Swartz took his own life after being repeatedly attacked and harassed by the government. It seems this is often the fate of highly gifted people of our time, who find themselves in the current anti-social system that we live in, where mostly psychopaths, barbarians and fucking morons roam.

I’m posting this because I want to answer one of the questions Murdock tweeted before he died: “What does one have to get education wise to become a police officer.. asking for a friend.”

The answer to that question is: preferably very little to nothing at all. Why? Because the government prefers it that way. From Global Research:

US Court Ruled You Can Be “Too Smart” to Be a Cop

Police department disqualifies anyone whose IQ is “too high.” Can a person actually be “too smart” to be a cop in America? A federal court’s decision back in 2000 suggests that, yes, you actually can be.

Robert Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, scored a 33 on an intelligence test he took as part of the application process to become a police officer in the town of New London, Connecticut. The score meant Jordan had an IQ of 125.

The average score for police officers was a 21-22, or an IQ of 104. New London would only interview candidates who scored between 20 and 27.

The police department went on to continue automatically disqualifying anyone whose IQ was “too high.” Jordan went on to become a prison guard instead.

Considering all the police brutality and officer-involved shootings in the news these days, here’s a rhetorical question for you: how well does this hiring practice bode for cops actually being able to follow the Constitution or use proper discretion while “protecting and serving” America?

More on this at The Free Thought Project:

Ever wonder why cops yell “quit resisting” as they beat a person who’s not resisting? Or why they shoot people who pose no threat? Maybe the answer is right in front of us.

It takes a special kind of person to go to work every day and harass, kidnap, and kill people for victimless crimes. The act of unquestioningly carrying out orders to ruin the lives of good people whose only “crime” was to do with their own body as they wish, would eventually have to raise the eyebrow of a person with a higher level of intelligence…or so we’d like to think.

Knowing that this ability to discriminate against intelligence in police departments exists tends to put ‘Police State USA’ in perspective. In the past decade we’ve seen heavily militarized actions against non-violent protesters. We’ve even seen school districts accepting MRAPs! And we’ve watched from the sidelines as Mayberry transformed to Martial Law.

A smart person does not create a domestic standing army and call it freedom. A smart person does not deliberately tear gas journalists. A smart person does not point a rifle at an innocent person and tell them that they are going to kill him. A smart person does not severely beat a person with down syndrome because he sees a bulge in his pants, which is actually a colostomy bag. A smart person does not continuously shoot at an unarmed man who posed zero threat and whose arms are in the air.

If more people knew this information you could rest assured that they would try and reform their police departments. No one wants their police officers to be unintelligent, right?

No one, except for the government, and for obvious reasons. The government loves to hire low intelligence, brainwashed zombies to do their dirty work, as I have extensively covered in a previous post. Not only that, but the government does everything it can to make sure that there will always be a good supply of such people in society. Very few of us manage to (eventually) escape (most of) the brainwash the government forces on us from early childhood (AKA “education”), designed to make us passive, ignorant and docile slaves who will blindly follow their orders — even when it’s to initiate violence against a fellow human being.

It’s sad to see that the barbarians have again managed to take out one of the few gifted people we have on this planet — someone who already made significant contributions to our development in the past, and who would probably have contributed much more in the future.

Hello from HTTPS, thanks to Let’s Encrypt

kareldonk.com over HTTPS

kareldonk.com over HTTPS

I spent the past weekend implementing HTTPS for my main websites, including this blog, and am glad to report that everything seems to have gone well. If you visit any of my *.kareldonk.com websites and suriname360, you’ll see a (green) lock in the address bar depending on which web-browser you use.

I used certificates from Let’s Encrypt, a new, free and open certificate authority operated by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) and sponsored by Facebook and Cisco among others:

Let’s Encrypt knows a thing or two about how this works. Sponsors include Cisco, Mozilla, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Akamai, as well as Facebook, IdenTrust, and a host of other knowledgeable Internet companies. This isn’t a rinky-dink operation.

At the same time that these Internet heavyweights are backing the push for universal encryption, we’re still hearing that various governments around the world are trying to subvert encryption standards. Kazakhstan has announced it will man-in-the-middle every secured communication in or out of the country, starting on Jan. 1. Whether or not it can actually do so may be immaterial, because the country has also stated it will monitor the Internet activities of every person within its borders and of those who communicate with outside those borders. France announced it would like to ban Tor and public Wi-Fi networks, though the prime minister later said it was perhaps a bit much — regardless, there is no mistaking the intent.

Their service is currently in beta and so far appears to be working well. Although their client software is designed to make the whole procedure of getting and installing certificates completely automated, it’s possible to use it in manual mode. This is very important if you’re hosting your website on a shared hosting account (like most people do) and don’t have low level access to the server(s). You can still obtain certificates on a different system manually, and then install them on the server hosting your website, provided that your hosting provider allows this via their control panel.

The certificates issued by Let’s Encrypt are Domain Validation (DV) certificates. These guarantee the user that the content they’re receiving/viewing does indeed come from the website they’re visiting. For example, it makes it difficult for third parties to look at and modify the content during transmission, or to inject content into pages (like advertising injection). And because of the encryption, it also provides a higher level of privacy.

Depending on your website it can take some time to make the necessary changes in order to make it fully secure via HTTPS. In my case I had to make changes in the HTML code to make sure no mixed content was being served, and I also had to update all my posts in the database to fix these issues (mostly fixing source URLs that used HTTP for loading content). Finally I configured the webserver to force serving all content through HTTPS.

Manually getting the certificates from Let’s Encrypt and installing them can be a hassle if you have to do it for a couple of domains, especially since the certificates are currently valid for only 90 days. But I think things might improve in the future. Right now Let’s Encrypt only supports manual domain validation via HTTP, but will soon also be supporting validation via DNS records which should be less work. In addition there’s talk about supporting longer certificate lifetimes, and I really hope they change their policy to support that. Personally I’d be happy with a certificate lifetime of at least a year so that I only have to renew my certificates once a year.

Of course it’s going to be even better when hosting providers begin implementing Let’s Encrypt on their servers especially for their shared hosting, so that they can automatically take care of getting and installing certificates from Let’s Encrypt (here’s a list of hosts that are working on it). In that case a lifetime of 90 days won’t be an issue, and this is what the people at Let’s Encrypt are going for in the first place. Here’s what DreamHost is doing:

DreamHost users will soon be able to generate and enable Let’s Encrypt certificates directly within their control panel. Who knows — now that certificates are free, we may even enable HTTPS for all new customers by default!

Thanks to Edward Snowden’s revelations, the world now knows that virtually all of their Internet traffic (innocent or otherwise) is being monitored at any given time. Who’s doing the monitoring? A lot of different governments around the world, for starters — and that’s just what he told us about. Anyone on the Internet can peek at traffic and spy on anyone or anything, with or without just cause.

DreamHost believes that your private data should remain private. You should have a reasonable expectation that your interactions with a website won’t be monitored by a third party — ever.

In the end it’s always going to be impossible to have complete security and privacy; we are after all a part of nature, and nature is an inherently open system where there can be no secrets in the long term. But seeing as how we currently live in a very hostile world caused by the anti-social system that we live in, we have to do what we can to protect ourselves as much as possible from all the possible abuse. And I think universal encryption initiatives like Let’s Encrypt will (temporarily) help us to work towards a better world.

Condolences to the Slaves of Suriname

Suriname: 40 Years of Slavery through Statism

Suriname: 40 Years of Slavery through Statism

Today the “Republic” of Suriname is celebrating 40 years of “independence.” As you may know, the slaves of Suriname won their “independence” from the Netherlands in 1975. In reality what happened is that they just went from one form of slavery into another, while being fooled into thinking that they actually became free and independent. Unfortunately, most of them are still very much asleep and unaware of the truth.

It’s a very sad state of affairs to say the least. So I’d like to offer my sincerest condolences to the slaves of Suriname for 40 years of enslavement through Statism. Please click here to educate yourselves. May you all wake up soon and realize the truth.

A few months ago I finished reading a book written by British historian David Irving titled “Hitler’s War.” It’s an excellent biography on Adolf Hitler, concentrating on his rise to power in Germany and following him from then on until the moment he takes his own life near the end of World War II. This book is the result of many years of research done by Irving, and is mostly based on primary sources: original documents found in the archives, memoirs and dairies as well as interviews conducted by Irving himself with people from Hitler’s inner circle. It’s the most balanced and objective source of information on the life of Hitler that I’ve come across up to now, and I’m planning on writing more about it in the future.

Be a Responsible Client

People are always on the lookout for bargains. Everyone wants to spend as little money as possible while getting as much as possible in return. After all, the more money you save, the more you can do with the same budget. There’s nothing wrong with this at first glance. However, in practice things often get out of hand when people start to get motivated by greed and when there’s a lack of trust.

We live in a very hostile world right now filled with deception where honesty is hard to find. There are many sociopaths out there who are only concerned about themselves and will try to squeeze out every advantage they can for themselves in any given situation, even at the expense of others — and I’d argue that most of the time it’s at the expense of others. And because of this, people are always skeptical of one another, constantly checking if they aren’t getting ripped off. On one side you have people constantly complaining about the price of products and services, haggling and trying to get the biggest discounts possible, while on the other side you have people purposely pricing their products and services a lot higher than needed because they expect clients to negotiate about the price.

It’s a lot like the above Monty Python sketch taken from the movie “Life of Brian.” It’s really as stupid as it is portrayed in the sketch. But this is the situation I find myself in everyday. And it gets a lot more difficult to function in such a situation the more you want to be honest to yourself and to everyone else.

Why I don’t like speaking in public

I sometimes get invited to speak in front of an audience; I get invited to do workshops or teaching sessions on photography or software engineering, presentations or lectures on subjects that I’ve researched and often blog about, or interviews on a variety of subjects. But most of the time I decline these invitations, and when I do I feel bad about disappointing people and worry that they might get the wrong idea about why I decline.

For example, when I decline in the case of workshops and teaching sessions, I get worried that people might think that I’m not very willing to share my knowledge with them, when on the contrary, I do love to share knowledge. When I decline in the case of presentations, lectures or interviews, I get worried that people might find me too arrogant, too proud or even that I may not like them for some reason. I always do my best to explain to everyone why I decline, but I still worry that they may not believe me. So in this post I want to explain why I generally decline speaking engagements in order to be open and transparent about it and in order to prevent misunderstandings.

Waarom ik nooit meer zal werken voor de roverheid

In de afgelopen jaren heb ik veel geleerd over het anti-sociaal systeem waar we momenteel in leven, meer bekend als Statism. Ik heb geleerd over het werkelijk doel van dit systeem en ik ben veel details te weten gekomen over zijn ware werking. Net als vele anderen voor mij, ben ik tot de conclusie gekomen dat het een zeer slecht systeem is, speciaal ontworpen om een ieder te corrumperen en tot slaaf te maken. Wetende wat ik nu weet, gaat het uiterst moeilijk zijn voor mij om met een rein geweten te werken voor elke regering die de leiding heeft binnen dit systeem.

Ik ben er zeker van dat wanneer je mijn blog artikel “Statisme: Een Systeem voor jouw Slavernij” leest, je zal begrijpen waarom ik kwam tot dit besluit. Maar ik wil een analogie bespreken die het heel duidelijk zal maken waarom ik niet meer kan werken voor welke regering dan ook.

Putin is wrong about Hitler

Someone should have a serious chat with Putin about Hitler as soon as possible. In the past 3 weeks I’ve come across at least two occasions where Putin compares the terrorists (ISIS and other CIA/Mossad trained and funded terrorist groups) that are currently fucking up the Middle East to Hitler. This shows that Putin probably lacks some very important background information about who is behind the mess we’re all confronted with in the Middle East right now, and who exactly is behind all the recent attacks against Russia.

For example, during his recent speech to the U.N. General Assembly on September 29th, 2015 he said the following:

In 1945, the countries that defeated Nazism joined their efforts to lay solid foundations for the postwar world order.

But I remind you that the key decisions on the principles guiding the cooperation among states, as well as on the establishment of the United Nations, were made in our country, in Yalta, at the meeting of the anti-Hitler coalition leaders.

On the basis of international law, we must join efforts to address the problems that all of us are facing and create a genuinely broad international coalition against terrorism.

Similar to the anti-Hitler coalition, it could unite a broad range of forces that are resolutely resisting those who, just like the Nazis, sow evil and hatred of humankind. And, naturally, the Muslim countries are to play a key role in the coalition, even more so because the Islamic State does not only pose a direct threat to them, but also desecrates one of the greatest world religions by its bloody crimes.

The Nazis did not sow evil and hatred of humankind. The Nazis had a problem with a very specific group of people; not all of humankind. And they had a problem with that group of people for very clear reasons — reasons that Putin himself has recently been confronted with in Russia. It’s the same group who seek to divide and conquer people all over the world, forcing their monetary system of usury and debt-slavery on them in order to enslave them. It’s the same group who instigate wars and manipulate others into fighting each other so that they can benefit from it — much like recent events where the USA tried hard to turn everyone against Russia, including blaming false flags (MH17 crash) on them. It’s the same group who love to put in place sanctions and economic boycotts on countries whose leaders don’t do their bidding and refuse to sell their people out as slaves — much like the recent events where the USA and EU enforced all kinds of economic boycotts on Russia. It’s that group of people that the Nazis had a problem with — the Zionist central bankers; the international financial elite. Hitler mentioned them and what they do many times in his speeches.

When Hitler came to power in Germany, he broke away from their monetary system of usury and debt-slavery. Eventually the central bankers had no choice but to launch the so called “anti-Hitler coalition” against Germany, which lead to World War II. The purpose of that coalition was to destroy Hitler and Germany, and bring Germany back under the control and enslavement of the central bankers. As Sheldon Emry wrote in “Billions for the Bankers, Debts for the People” (1984):

Germany issued debt-free and interest-free money from 1935 and on, accounting for its startling rise from the depression to a world power in 5 years. Germany financed its entire government and war operation from 1935 to 1945 without gold and without debt, and it took the whole Capitalist and Communist world to destroy the German power over Europe and bring Europe back under the heel of the Bankers. Such history of money does not even appear in the textbooks of public (government) schools today.

Yes, that’s the real reason why Hitler and Germany had to be destroyed during World War II. I highly recommend reading Emry’s article in full.

Another example showing that Putin is seriously misinformed on Hitler is the following quote from an article on Veterans Today:

Putin summoned Turkish Ambassador to Moscow, Umit Yardim to the Kremlin for what turned out to be a two hour diatribe by Putin with fiery accusations returned by the Turkish Ambassador.  This is the best translation of key statements made by Putin:

“Tell your dictator Erdogan to go to hell and that unless he stops well established and easily proven support for ISIS, Russia will sever diplomatic relations.  We are  prepared to turn Syria into a big Stalingrad for Turkey and her Saudi allies and their vicious little gang of Hitlers.

Your little dictator is a hypocrite, attacking the military coup in Egypt while, at the same time, he is trying to overthrow the elected government of Syria. As it stands, China, Iran and Russia will guarantee the survival of Syria.”

It’s difficult to verify the authenticity of that quote attributed to Putin, but if Putin really did compare the terrorists in the Middle East to Hitler, that’s showing that he really knows jack shit about who Hitler was and what he really stood for.

I’d like to refer you, and hopefully also Putin, to a recent post I did on Hitler, titled “Adolf Hitler: The Greatest Story NEVER Told”; check out the documentary I mentioned there and study the information provided, including the videos linked in the notes below the post. I also want to implore you, and especially Putin, to go and read the best biography of Hitler currently available titled “Hitler’s War” (free download), written by David Irving, one of the best and most courageous historians currently alive. I can also highly recommend reading another book where you can get to know what kind of a person Hitler really was from his own words, namely “Hitler’s Table Talk.”

Unless you’ve checked out all of that information, it’s wise not to talk about Hitler in public — including referring to other people as ‘Hitlers’ — because chances are you’re going to make a fool of yourself and you’re going to regret being wrong later.

Like I mentioned above, the fact that Putin appears to be so misinformed on Hitler means that he doesn’t fully understand the forces that work behind the scenes to create global conflicts. And if that is true, it also means that Putin lacks the insight to know who exactly he’s up against and where all the attacks against Russia are coming from exactly. This further means that he can easily be manipulated into doing what the global financial elite want him to do, as an article on War is Crime mentions:

Putin is developing almost a cult following among some people in the alternative media. To them, he represents a man with the force of conviction to tell international banking to go to hell. To these well-intentioned, but misguided analysts, Putin has succeeded where other world leaders have lost their lives (e.g. JFK, Hussein, etc.). As romantic and appealing as a superhero may be who will ride in and save the world from the evil bankers, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to Putin. Whether Putin realizes it or not, he is doing the complete bidding of the big boys at the BIS and everything is moving right along according to plan.

This article explores the fact that Putin, although he may be, on the surface, resisting international banking on one level, he is very much under their control on another level.

The failure of the central banks to corral and control Putin has made World War III a likely scenario. As Putin continues on the path of destroying the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, what will the Federal Reserve do? There will be a war to preserve the status quo. As China, Russia and the United States are drawn into a confrontation, the world’s economy will be obliterated along with billions of lives. In the aftermath of the coming global holocaust, the supreme financial rulers of the planet will be waiting to create order, the New World Order, out of chaos.

A willing pawn of the NWO, or not, Putin is no hero. He is doing exactly what is expected. Make no mistake about, the BIS controls the central banks, world finance and Putin. The New World Order is very much alive.

Either Putin is completely ignorant of what exactly is going on, and he’s allowing himself to be manipulated into carrying out the plans of the global financial elite, or, Putin is in on all of this, but is just another puppet doing the bidding of the money masters and playing along with their games. This would also explain why he keeps perpetuating the lies about Hitler, so that people don’t find out the truth about why Hitler and Germany had to be destroyed during World War II.

Let’s hope that Putin is just very misinformed and that he will get informed very soon before it’s too late.

How the Lack of Sex causes Cancer

Pelvic Douche

Water massages as a treatment for hysteria c. 1860.

The link between a chronic lack of good and fulfilling sex and various physical, mental and emotional problems is becoming increasingly more obvious. In the past I had already discussed how a lack of sex causes mental and emotional problems. For example, if you’ve read my article series on Understanding Women, you already know that there can be no doubt about the fact that women’s irrational, mean and often hostile behavior is linked to female sexual suppression and repression. In the first part of that series I mentioned how vaginal massages were used by physicians in the past to treat female hysteria.

Someone recently brought a website to my attention with videos on lymphatic detoxification massages. When I saw the video thumbnails on that website, the link with the water massages that were used to treat female hysteria in the past was immediately obvious to me. I’ve included some screenshots from the website below.

Lymphatic Detoxification

Lymphatic Detoxification

Pay attention to the fact that almost all of the videos concentrate on massages of the lymphatic nodes near the genital areas (near the penis, vagina and breasts). And also take note of the fact that the purpose of these massages is stress relief and to achieve strong orgasms. I’m going to explain the reason for this below.
