Quote For The Day - 9/19/2017

"Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one's thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down."
Frederick Douglass

A Question For President Trump

"Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?"
Abraham Lincoln

Thought For The Day - 9/18/2017

To qualify as colonial powers, Facebook and Google must effectively limit the choices and power of users, and punish or coerce those who question or resist their power.

President Trump is not the greatest threat to freedom of the press and to our democracy.

Facebook and Google, on the other hand, are, with Amazon coming in a close second.

Possible Lessons From The Parsons Green Bombing ???

Here is an essay by Craig Murray which appears to contain two previously unnoticed lessons from the latest terrorist bombing in the UK. I have labeled them [1] and [2] for clarity:


[1] To create an effective blast, you need some sort of pressure vessel containing the explosive. There is no sign of this in the photos of the Parsons Green bomb and plainly there was no “blast” as such from the condition of the bucket. Some kind of fire event was rather created. [2] If the police are arresting the right people, it is teenagers from social care backgrounds who did this. That is of a piece with what we know of so many recent attacks, where psychiatric health appears to be the cause of an interest in nihilist ideologies – as opposed to the other way round.

What might this mean for the rest of us?

[1] Anyone who really wants to harm us can do so.

[2] There are a lot more potential causes for today's terrorism than just "Islamic extremism".

For a better understanding of what I mean, please compare to this previous blog post about some observations by Peter Hitchens:

Israel Arming Mexico ???

Is the US government in favor of this?

Israel Aiding Mexico’s Development With More Arms, Drones And Spy Software

Israel has long helped Mexico in the latter’s drive to eliminate domestic dissent, with Israeli weapons and personnel used to crush groups like the Zapatistas. Israel’s prime minister recently paid a visit to Mexico, bringing with him a promise of “development” that will likely mean more Israeli guns flowing into Mexico.

Reading the Bible, one might get the impression the Jewish messiah is going to turn the world into some sort of paradise.

But if you examine what Israelis actually are doing to the world, it should be clear they are turning it into a prison ... for everyone, including Jews.

What's up with that?

Is NIMBY Good Enough ???

Here is an essay dealing with toxic substances which are invading our homes:

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41968-are-hazardous-vapors-seeping-into-your-home

It is a misconception to think we can manufacture such things ANYWHERE on this planet safely. No matter where such poisons are produced and stored, they eventually will seep out and affect the health of EVERYONE.

Science and technology are NOT our friends. Today they are chiefly tools through which the rich get and stay rich, while the poor suffer the consequences.

That is not to say that science and technology are inherently bad; but they are NOT being used effectively to improve the welfare of We The People.
