Constants and variables 79, Aberree vs Me edition
Alphia Hart constantly recommended examining your own ideas, but he didn't always succeed in examining his own. Along with a preponderance of powerfully original and unique thoughts, he sometimes let out a standard "liberal" thought, as in this 1957 editorial
In this case the expectors were right and Hart was wrong. Professional criminals CAN be expected to commit more crimes. At that time medical and actuarial statistics were good predictors because the profits of insurers and hospitals depended on good prediction. Now, of course, the profit motive no longer exists and sanity is LONG gone from penal policy, so stats are no longer reliable.
Hart didn't seem to have much contact with the shady end of society (which may explain why my social circle didn't overlap his!
) so he wouldn't have a lot of experience with pro criminals.
He did have direct experience with the A-bomb. He did his WW2 service as a journalist for the Air Force, writing training films and press releases. He was one of the few journalists who directly witnessed and photographed the Bikini atomic test.
Thus his thoughts about bombs are informed by experience:
My experience vs idiocy record runs exactly backwards. I had early and direct experience
with professional criminals, but no experience of bombs or war. So I was able to embrace globalist wars with enthusiasm until I unplugged the TV and started thinking; but I was never susceptible to globalist lies about prison and criminals.
Less delicately: When you've had criminals up your ass, you develop immunity to globalist lies about criminals. When you've had A-bombs up your ass, you develop immunity to globalist lies about bombs.
SKILLS DON'T LIE.

Hart's theory about synchronous hate influencing weather was fanciful at the time, but three separate developments in knowledge and technology make it more plausible now.
1. Neurology is getting a better picture of how the brain works. It's not digital and it's not separate filing cabinets. Nothing is static, everything is flowing. Think of one million people watching Miss Anderson Cooper screeching up RUSSIANAGGRESSION RUSSIANMEDDLING RUSSIANHACKING. Inside each of those one million viewers, one billion** synapses are firing off transient electrical impulses in synchrony.
2. Since 1957 TV has grown infinitely more expert at synchronizing with brain patterns. The six-second rhythm phase-locks large portions of your brain to the visual and audial input.
3. Meteorology and bacteriology are converging on one BIG AND CONSEQUENTIAL set of facts. Bacteria shape clouds and ocean currents, and bacteria respond to electromagnetic fields.
You don't need metaphysics or 'butterfly-chaos' stuff. You've got an evil intentionally phase-locked driving force mechanically leveraging
10^15 synapses in perfect synchrony, and you've got uncountable numbers of bacteria capable of sensing a massive electromagnetic field. The connection isn't definite but it's damned plausible.
**Footnote: The number of synapses moved by a large emotion in one brain is probably in the trillions, not billions; but these numbers are flatout incalculable in any case.
