In the matter of Rossi v. Darden, and Peter Gluck, it’s becoming clear. On LENR Forum, yesterday, Peter Gluck wrote:
It ius better to have Rossi Diabolicus with a working technology than perfect man with no technology.
Here 80% goes about Rossi’s character and 20% about the issues of real interest, Y/N?
To me, and to most, people are far more important than technology. After all, what’s it for? If we have a perfect man, he will generate technology or not, it doesn’t matter, because such a man can and will transform society toward what is possible for humanity. If we have a major technology controlled by a “Diabolicus,” — a devil — we could have cheap energy and all die from a nuclear war, because that is exactly what devils do: cause people to fight, and they use lies or whatever means available.
Peter is promoting, though he probably does not realize it, the end justifies the means.
In this view, whatever Rossi does is good, if it brings his technology to the world. The argument can be made, but the devil is literally in the details.
The technology is not going to be brought to the world with lies, nor as a result of “belief in Rossi.” It will be brought to the world if it works, and nothing is likely to change that. “Attack on Rossi,” Peter’s theme, would be irrelevant, unless they actually kill him and prevent him from communicating what he knows. He’s been asked and supposedly he has communicated his secrets so that they will not be lost if he dies.
However, if he is “diabolicus,” nothing he says can be trusted. Indeed, the goal of such is to mislead and deceive and to cause conflict. And from what I know of this force in life, it will continue even if he dies. Peter — like Bob Greenyer — is naive. My history includes reading Hostage to the Devil, by Malachi Martin, and then, as well, observing certain phenomena. This stuff, undigested, can lead to mania, easily. Consider the original Ulysses Pact.
There are consequences to Peter’s position. One would be that anyone who “attacks Rossi” is “Fair game,” and this transcends honesty, fairness, and law. It explains why Peter would attack someone — Jed Rothwell — who had supported him. Peter, himself, does not lie, to my knowledge, though the principle he has just enunciated would fully allow it, but, he does publish lies from others, and with apparent approval or at least not disapproval.
Peter has demolished his credibility, in the CMNS community. And that is, again, common with those who “sell their souls.” They have a “higher purpose,” even though that purpose may lead them to what I mentioned before as an occurring (not as a fact or wish other than reactive expression), burn in hell forever, because of the reality of what they do.
Anyone who thinks this is about ordinary good-faith disagreements is not paying attention.
I’d love to see Peter return to sanity, and my suggestion would be that he find someone he trusts to review what is going on. I’d suggest he choose well, because his entire future could depend on it. He would empower that person to “tie him to the mast,” if it is needed. The same for Bob Greenyer, by the way. And for anyone, for if we cannot trust anyone, we have nobody to trust, and we are, ourselves, in a dire condition, because sane people can trust others (at least somebody!).
Peter’s post, by the way, was off-topic, and about personalities or LENR Forum behavior, and not the topic, Rossi. v. Darden developments. He is supposedly lamenting lack of discussion of the topic, but helping create more distraction, as are some others…. However, what he has revealed is worth noting, because it has deep explanatory power, it places the conflict that grew over the last year in context.
