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)

What did Marx really mean by Peace? What do we all mean?

"peace is the absence of opposition to socialism" - Karl Marx (source)

This is often invoked by pro-war people to imply that peace constitutes a surrender to socialism. (odd, since I don't think there's anything more socialist than the military...state run, funded by theft, tells its minions they have no rights, tells them to just follow orders and become part of the 'hive mind'...)

I see the quote as being a fallacy not unlike the same claims of neocon fascists:

peace is the absence of opposition to Merika.
peace is the final victory of Judeo-Christian Oceania over those Islamic Eurasian vermin.

(when will that be, dear leader?)

well, it's going to take a long time of your continued unquestioning support for me...

Marx says socialism will herald peace, and that nothing else will.

Quite to the contrary, what happened when socialism came to Russia? Mass butchery. Germany? Uber butchery. (and don't even try that 'Nazis weren't socialists' rubbish, yes they were.) Nazis and Soviets engaged in a border dispute that resulted in the biggest mass battlefield butchery the world has ever witnessed. Even Che was a meat cleaving son of a, but he is cool so his crimes are forgotten and people buy his capitalist T-shirts.

No, Marx's peace was the tyrant's peace. Not what you or I would understand the term 'peace' surely to mean. He meant the peace a police officer gets when a suspect is handcuffed on the floor with a knee in their back. Not peace per se, rather a lack of resistance to 'authority'. Peace without freedom is no peace worth having.

But is that not what most people mean by 'peace'? Are we not all guilty of the same logical fallacy, just on smaller scales than Karl was? Perhaps by saying that we want a government that steals from us in order to safeguard our rights (how Orwellian), we are all making the same error. Many authoritarians, typically right-wingers, would say that order (they hate that damn hippy word 'peace', so probably would replace it with 'order') can only be upheld by a mighty force ready to stomp on anyone at any time. That in order to make peace, a climate of fear must be created...but does that not undo any prospect of real peace in the first place?

For all their supposed opposition to one another, the authoritarian police state lovin' right-wingers and Marx have a lot in common. Collectivists, what you gonna do.

Hate the anarchists if you want, but hate is all you can do, not debate - their logic is sound and the logic defending the state is not. IMHO

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
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.
