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.

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.

Will the US Destroy the World? - Don’t Expect to Live Much Longer / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

European governments and the Western media have put the world at risk by enabling Washington’s propaganda and aggression against Russia.

Washington has succeeded in using transparent lies to demonize Russia as a dangerous aggressive country led by a new Hitler or a new Stalin, just as Washington succeeded in demonizing Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the Taliban in Afghanistan, Qaddafi in Libya, Assad in Syria, Chavez in Venezuela, and, of course, Iran.

The Israeli Tail Keeps Wagging the US Dog / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Eric Margolis writes: NEW YORK – In 1956, Britain and France were convinced that Egypt’s charismatic nationalist leader, Gamal Abdel Nasser, was threatening what was left of their Mideast and African colonial empires. London branded Nasser, “Hitler on the Nile.”

So the British and French governments secretly enlisted Israel to invade and annex Egypt’s Sinai. British and French troops were to seize the Canal Zone in a supposed “peacekeeping mission,” march on Cairo, and install a puppet government there. Israel would keep the entire Sinai Peninsula.

Ron Paul - End Torture, Shut Down The CIA! / Politics / Intelligence Agencies

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, "we don't torture people"? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, "this government does not torture people"? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier.

Virtually the entire U.S. news media and almost every national politician bends to the desires of Israel’s government regardless of its behavior, a reality that enables the persecution and even slaughter of Palestinians.

What It Means - Paradigm Collapse And Culture Crisis / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

Is Society Erasable or Deletable?
Trying to compare human thought with computers is not easy. Even larger difficulties face us when we try defining “social memory” before comparing its use, modification, or deletion with computer hardware devices and software programming techniques. One of the largest hurdles is that society is an abstract concept and has no formal or single physical representation.

Guilt By Insinuation - How American Propaganda Works / Politics / Propaganda

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Why hasn’t Washington joined Russian President Putin in calling for an objective, non-politicized international investigation by experts of the case of the Malaysian jetliner?

The Russian government continues to release facts, including satellite photos showing the presence of Ukrainian Buk anti-aircraft missiles in locations from which the airliner could have been brought down by the missile system and documentation that a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet rapidly approached the Malaysian airliner prior to its downing. The head of the Operations Directorate of Russian military headquarters said at a Moscow press conference today (July 21) that the presence of the Ukrainian military jet is confirmed by the Rostov monitoring center.

When the US Supports Israel, What Exactly is it Supporting? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

According to the Congressional Budget Office, “Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $121 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance.” Other special benefits also flow to the Israeli military. Each year, the U.S. pays for about 20 percent of Israel’s overall military spending, and the total places Israel as the 16th largest military spender in the world. “In 2007, the Bush Administration and the Israeli government agreed to a 10-year, $30 billion military aid package for the period from FY2009 to FY2018.” Obama has renewed that pledge.

Quite fantastically, but printed in black and white in sturdy propaganda outlets like 'Wall Street Journal' we are informed that of course anonymous and unidentified senior US strategists have let 'WSJ' know that nuclear first strike against Russia is possible. It is feasible, in their opinion, and secondly would give total victory to the US and its allies in Europe. Uukraine would be liberated.

In the wake of the latest periodic barbaric bloodletting of palestinians by Israel that tends to occur every second year resulting in several thousand deaths of mostly women and children with many times more injured, thousands of homes and much of Gaza's infrastructure destroyed all in the name of Jewish fundamentalism for that is what best describes the Zionist ideology of Israel, one of chosen people of God that has its whole basis in myth and superstitions such as talking snakes, magic apples, women cursed to be second class citizens for eternity, and a vindictive spiteful God who punishes the WHOLE of mankind forever just for eating one apple and out this madness emerges the myth of a chosen people of God, the me, me, me, we are special syndrome, lately obsessed with finding genetic proof for a Jewish master race just as Germany of the 1930's had once been engaged in and like wise see non jews as literally sub-human Goyim to slaughter.
