The Social Memory Dump, Shredding Society / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

Intoxicating “the people” or “the mass” with permanent over-information of the trivial sort can be taken as the Aldous Huxley theory of the breakdown of society – to compare with the George Orwell theory where an all-powerful police state severely limits all information except pure propaganda (see for example http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-30/aldous-huxley-vs-george-orwell). I suggest we in fact have suffered a converging twin track of both “strategies” in western society today, including the ultimate in disinformation which is the suppression of the ability to understand, know, and act in consequence of what we know.

No More School in Gaza Because All the Children are Dead Chant Israel's Jewish Fundementalists / Politics / Israel

By: Videos

Channel 4 News shows once more shows how far Israel has drifted towards becoming a Neo-Nazi state as illustrated by the fact that over 90% of Israeli's support the War on the Children of Gaza with many Israeli Jewish Fundamentalists drunk on the kool-aid of the assumption of being the self prophessed chosen people of God, can be heard chanting "there is no more school in Gaza because all of the children are dead".

The Iron Dome Inside The Heads of Israel’s Leaders / Politics / Israel

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: When you go to a dictionary to look up dome, you find lots of references to hemispherical structures or forms.  You also find that it is slang word for the head.

And so, it may not be much of a stretch to look at the “Iron Dome” counter-missile system utilized by the Israeli forces as a perfect metaphor for the men authorizing its deployment and use, the iron domes of the heads who head up Israel’s military, and orchestrate its most assuredly not defensive war against Gaza.

You Know a Politician or Talking Head is Clueless When….. / Politics / Social Issues

By: Rudy_Avizius

People will toil for decades to make the money they need to pay the bills and other necessities. Yet, fewer than 1 in 1000 people understand how this money actually gets into circulation and who benefits from our current system. Most politicians and talking heads certainly do not understand this.

Rogue States And Loony Tunes / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Term No Longer Exists
According to the semi-official Encyclopedia of the New American Nation, published by the University of Michigan, the term “rogue state” ceased being used by any US agency or politician in year 2000. It says American foreign policymakers had used the terms "rogue," "outlaw," and "backlash" states almost interchangeably as the Cold War reached its end. It says that as early as July 1985, President Reagan asserted that "We are not going to tolerate attacks from outlaw states by the strangest collection of misfits, loony tunes, and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich". It was during Clinton's two administrations that “rogue state” had its heyday.

Our Totalitarian Future - Totalitarianism NOW! / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“Where the republican or limited monarchical tradition is weak, the best of constitutions will not prevent ambi­tious politicians from succumbing with glee and gusto to the temptations of power. And in any country where numbers have begun to press heavily upon avail­able resources, these temptations cannot fail to arise. Over-population leads to economic insecurity and so­cial unrest. Unrest and insecurity lead to more con­trol by central governments and an increase of their power. In the absence of a constitutional tradition, this increased power will probably be exercised in a dictatorial fashion.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited – 1958

Designer War By Default - Seven Types of Elite Madness / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

The straight majority of all major wars, and many minor wars are disputed as to their exact causes and origins. Historians debating the causes, in the plural, of World War I are still far from any consensus on how this war started. Put another way, their causes are unknown or even impossible to know.

Eccentric, strange or deranged political decisions and elite behaviour obviously aid the process. Elites living in a special world where fantasy blots out reality can easily have what is called a split mind. Also called schizophrenia, its earliest definition and clinical description of how schizoid denial of reality works was in 1911, by the Swiss psychologist Eugen Bleuler.

Why Israel Should NOT Exist, Just Like Any Other Rogue State / Politics / Israel

By: Andrew_McKillop

Before I am instantly accused of antisemitism, I add that in my opinion all nation states are Rogue States and only some, like Israel are intensely rogue, or if that is not an adjective they are “rogueish”. In other words the intense ones are a permanent threat to peace, while the others are only a constant background threat to peace. The only difference.

Western Media Only a Tinge of Sadness for Gaza Slaughter / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Andrew_McKillop

Only A Tinge of Sadness
In a highly predictable article slavishly supporting Israel's blitzkrieg in Gaza, but starting to have doubts about it, the 'Wall Street Journal', July 29, has the bare-faced audacity to tell its readers that the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr has been “tinged with sadness”. The Eid brought a brief lull in the fighting between Israel and Hamas “but instead of the customary feasting and celebration families were counting their dead and injured”. They were of course only “tinged” with sadness.

By listening to this summer’s political commercials, Alaskans could rejoice that a job-friendly atmosphere has been restored to the Alaska oil slope due to the end of the ACES pricing structure now replaced by the pre-ACES lower tax rates. So, Vote No on Ballot Measure 1 to create Alaska jobs!

Our Population Growth Totalitarian Future / Politics / Demographics

By: James_Quinn

“On the first Christmas Day the population of our planet was about two hundred and fifty millions — less than half the population of modern China. Sixteen cen­turies later, when the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plym­outh Rock, human numbers had climbed to a little more than five hundred millions. By the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, world pop­ulation had passed the seven hundred million mark. In 1931, when I was writing Brave New World, it stood at just under two billions. Today, only twenty-seven years later, there are two billion eight hundred million of us. And tomorrow — what?” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited – 1958

World War 1 Cause and Consequences - The Planned Destruction of Christendom / Politics / WW1

By: BATR

With the centurial commemoration of the Great War, the Timeline of World War I provides a chronological list of facts and occurrences. Contrast such details with a wholly inadequate and sanitized version of the Top 5 Causes of World War 1:

1. Mutual Defense Alliances

2. Imperialism

3. Militarism

4. Nationalism

5. Immediate Cause: Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand

Ukraine MH17 - Washington Thinks Americans Are Fools / Politics / US Politics

By: Raul_I_Meijer

At this point, you may want to consider making it personal. Your government, wherever you are in the west, but especially in the US, takes you for a bunch of fools they can feed anything at all and fully expect you to believe all of it. As for the media who convey government messages, it’s up in the air whether they too take you for a flock of dimwits, or are just plain fools themselves. As for your families, friends and neighbors, you decide.

Mossad in Gaza, Ukraine and the Cult Of The All-Powerful Elite / Politics / Intelligence Agencies

By: Andrew_McKillop

What the MH17 Disaster Proves
To date, as of end July, it proves that conspiracy theorists can beat their favorite gong – of evil and all-powerful elites in Washington, Brussels and Kiev creating a false flag to blacken separatists in eastern Ukraine as “terrorists”. So far and to date, we have not heard how Mossad was involved, but it likely has plenty to do in Gaza running a 2014 version of the Warsaw ghetto uprising of 1944 and its savage repression by the Nazis. Keeping the pot of hate boiling over, as any secret service should do.

The Mass Psychology Of Decline / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Decline Paradigm
Possibly unknown to some persons, the fear and theory of decline is the single most important long-running feature of modern western culture.  From at latest the 1870s, it haunts western elites. We can legitimately call it mass paranoia of the elites.

The counterpart obsession is finding remedies to limit or reverse the decline. To be sure, the elite fear of decline is a “secret paradigm”, only rarely admitted at the microphone, and only mentioned when so-called remedies are being floated and touted. Keeping this mass paranoia of the elites a mostly “secret doctrine” is also advantageous to them because, when needed, they can declare that decline is now a national emergency needing “shock therapy” to reverse the decline they previously denied.
