UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http://ncnblogger.wordpress.com/ (this will remain as an archive and be damn sure I will still read all your wonderful blogs as ever). Those who have linked me please update the link. Thanks all. Looking forward to continued blogging in the future.

Today's news is that Osama is dead. Well it's sort of 10 year old news, but there you go. Supposedly one of the very mind controlled special forces shot him in the head, although given the notorious nature of the invading forces' willingness to kill someone then play dress up afterwards, who knows it may have been a woman who they drew a beard on with marker pen. Photo looks 'shopped but what do I know. Then again corpses just like your TV dinner keep very well in the freezer...lol...


Anyway I'm off to get kidney dialysis using only sand and donkey piss while being hunted by all the satellites and spy planes that a trillion dollar military budget can buy, for ten years. Ciao

PS does this mean the war on terror is over now and 'we' can come home and dismantle the police state and not have RFID passports and iris scans and creepy wiretaps anymore? (Comptroller says no)

Keep The Internet Free

People often talk about their concerns for their liberty. And I'm not splitting people into 'right' or 'left' on this one. We all want liberty, we just disagree as to how it can be acheived.
I think that large numbers of us, ordinary people, feel our liberty slipping away. Myself included. Whether you call this threat 'the angry Left', 'Military-Industrial Complex', 'Socialism', 'the War on Terror', 'Islamic agenda' or 'Government-Corporate Hegemony', doesn't matter. Surely we can all agree, for example, that the Internet should remain free.

(Image: Big Brother is watching you already, but will he be able to lure you into his prison of 'protection'?)

Think about what media we have other than the internet. People constantly complain about bias and spin in mainstream corporate TV news and newspapers. The mistake is to label such bias as 'liberal' or 'conservative', in my view. I'd just call it all bullshxx. And worse than that, it's a distraction to the real stories and information we should be paying attention to.

Historically, freedoms were taken away starting with baby steps. Such a step is likely to be taken here in the UK, where internet sites are to be given age ratings as if they were DVDs.

Apparently, this is to protect children from the content out there that obviously is not 'for kids', basically porn and violence/gore. And I have sympathy for this cause.

The problem is, it will NEVER work. Protecting children from restricted content? Oh please. And, of course, it will form the basis for further regulation, monitoring, restriction and give Big Brother another way to control innocent citizens.

According to the BBC report, the 'Culture Secretary' (can't believe his job is necessary), Andy Burnham, who made these proposals, 'says people need help navigating the internet'. And that he wanted to "protect the public from unacceptable material". If you speak English, no matter where you live, you are not safe from this project, because "he also plans to negotiate with the US on drawing up international rules for English language websites."

I don't need to explain how angry all that left me.

I don't need your damn help navigating the internet, and you know as well as I do that 'unacceptable material' sounds pretty much like something out of the Chinese government. They consider information about the Tiananmen Square massacre to be 'unacceptable'.

This has ZERO to do with protecting children and everything to do with firing the opening shots in a war for the last avenue of free speech, the humble internets.

(Image: I have read about this before, but here is the evidence, 'Free' Google above, Chinese Google below; the search says 'Tiananmen', referring to Tiananmen Square, for which the protests and massacre of 1989 are the main historical event. Note the absence of the infamous 'Tank Man' images, only the presence of 'normal' photos. Imagine googling 'World Trade Center' and only finding information about the buildings, with maybe a reference to the 'demolition' of the towers. That's what it is like, in many ways.)

(Image: It's always about 'safety', but few bother to think about what will be done in the name of 'safety'.)

Every time government talks about 'freedom from' something, or 'protection' from something, you can safely bet it means, "We're going to compromise your freedom, in the name of safety".

Hmm, sounds quite familiar. Reminds me of a certain champion of liberty Thomas Jefferson:
"Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety."

Maybe I'm making too much of this. But the internet is the last stand of free speech, as I see it; and if it falls to corporatisation and governments' control, then it could reach a point where we all regret not having listened to Alex Jones, whilst we could.


We Will NOT Be Silenced said...

Great article. Well written.
And no you're not making too much of it.
It's also another back door way of charging more taxes, fees and license fees! Big Brother at it's best taking our money from us under the guise of Protecting, regulating, making Sure People are safe and all that jazz!

Going especially after Engligh language web sites.
Yeah lets go after the English web site... sounds like the western cultures are being singled out for limiting freedom of speech, wonder who's behind some of that.

What about the Arabic Language and other difficult languages that most of us don't speak, that are recruiting for Jihad and such. I guess they will be exempt from all the rules.

Ahhrrrgg it makes me want to spit.

Kind of sounds like what Canada tried to do to Mark Steyn over articles he wrote about Islam. In other words, more Big Brother and Politically Correctness.

Undebunkable Chemtrails Video That The "Debunkers" Ignore...

...and yes, Chemtrails interfere with weather

(but why they are used, no-one fully knows...)

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?

It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?

Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!

No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)

I'm Already Against The Next War

I'm Already Against The Next War
Stop the propaganda before it's here. If some kind of terror attack happens in the West, Iran probably didn't do it. They have no history of imperialism and would be suicidal to attack the West. Think who benefits. No bombing of Iran.
