Ferguson Attacks And Web Censorship Are Parts Of Same Story
by Rick Falkvinge, August 17, 2014, TorrentFreak.com
A lot of this week in civil liberties has been about the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, USA. Police troops fired tear gas on a television crew. This mirrors the ongoing web censorship efforts.
The governments around the world are reacting the exact same way today as they did when the printing press arrived 500 years ago. There isn’t really anything new under the sun.
Then, as now, they were used to telling people what was true and what wasn’t, telling whatever story that fit whatever it was they wanted to do.
“Cannabis is dangerous. Tobacco is not harmful at all. Oh, and there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.”
When police troops in Ferguson launched tear gas grenades at a television team from Al-Jazeera, that is a symptom of the exact same thing as web censorship: governments are losing control of the story. Governments can no longer invent whatever truth that fits what they want to happen. Police firing at press is actually something very rare – even in the worst of war zones, it’s a rare occurrence that press teams are deliberately targeted, and yet, this was precisely what happened in Ferguson, USA.
Here comes the shitstorm that our times will be known for.
The fearful worshippers of order will try by any means at their disposal to enforce a singular system of control on this planet. Here, for example, we find the kony meme washed almost clear of the uncontrollable ejaculations of its previous patron. False dichotomy is the shop term for that particular scam. "If war is terrible, then its opposite must be great, right? ...It's for the kids, and... and LOOK! Kittens! ... britney nude xxx superbowl" Will this work for more than a week? I don't know. The people they have raised to respond to this, through a lifetime of oprahaic mush from the teleteat, have frightfully short attention spans. By design they are not meant to be able to think for themselves and will not be able to respond in an intelligible manner to the challenges of "their" logic which is bound to ensue. Religions were able to skate by on "because god", but an immunity to that is now well represented among the people. Similarly, alinsky tactics have been ridden hollow just to ensure another year of bonuses for monsanto and co.
Oh, what a dilemma! To appear grassroots peddling peace, while being hosted by the same circus that brought you the same justifications for war last week. Perhaps it should have popped directly from the gangnam man's crotch. Is it too early for the nymph parade, or has that carrot too been exhausted so that monsanto could see 2014? I can see it already: "Study finds chicks see service to the world order as "highly attractive" quality in bro's." And we thought evolution held for us no more predators to overcome.
How many will endure as people, and how many will become part of a bureaucratic colony organism to lend a false sense of security to the terrified? Unknown. By this ratio the success of the people of this time will be known.
The word terrorist has been corrupted to mean just about anyting that the globalist powers feel nervous about (everything), but if you're looking for the real thing, you need look no further than nelson mandela.
South Africa has for more than a week now, like much of the world, I gather, been in the grips of a 24/7 propaganda campaign whitewashing the image of mandela. They call him the father of the rainbow nation and praise him mostly because "he forgave the people who imprisoned him." The first, like the rainbow nation itself, is a mirage wholly created by the media, starting around 1994. The second is a popular statement to make of mandela, that to the aware person betrays the racist roots in the thinking that led to its creation. This statement is an important thing to point out in a propaganda campaign because it's just about the only positive thing you could say about him, even if it is a lie. Not only does it imply that every white person was responsible for his imprisonment, but it implies that things would've been much worse for white South Africans had he not forgiven us our imagined crimes against his most exulted personage. Since white South Africans have become, by law, second class citizens in the country of our birth anyway, it's easy to assume that this is a threat of actual violence.
The fact is that nelson mandela was until his death, an actual terrorist. He has admitted to mobilising bombings against civilians, and he has never renounced these violent ways. Look up the list of bombings on the 'net, because you won't be told it by the media that not too long ago lent similar support to the invasion of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Iran.
After the white government of the 90s decided to open up South Africa to globalist interests, mandela was given the country with no questions asked. He then proceeded to play oprah for the world while the country supposedly under his command started a clear decline in every area except wealth concentration. The party which he brought to power has since thrown South Africa into a pit of corruption, nepotism and incompetence that started with his reign. Our current president is most well known for getting away with rape and keeping his friends out of jail. Our murder rate has become the highest in the world. This is the true legacy of nelson mandela. This is the reason why the media needs to fill the airwaves with an uninterrupted stream of lies curoiously lacking in substance concerning this person, because they sure as shit can't tell you the truth.
Soon there will be nothing more to be done for those that consider the loudest noise to be synonymous with fact. To be tied to their fate would be to be tied at the hip to a lemming.
Well, I think it's safe to say that the order came down from the-great-eye-worshipped-by-the-fearful, and commanded reddit to fall into step with the rest of the mainstream media.
In addition to the censorship enacted on /r/politics as seen in the video above, this post [original cached] was recently made (and subsequently removed in a staggering show of cowardice) to /r/worldnews to let us know that news of SOPA/ACTA/PIPA/CISPA would no longer be tolerated on that sub. Nor would news of the secret preparations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership be allowed. The broken logic behind this, delivered in one voice by various shills upon challenge, is this: "Once the american initiative to collar, monitor and completely monetize the (global) internet becomes a reality, then it will become world news. Until then, it's US politics, which of course you can freely post to any of our other (also censored) subs (if you can get it seen among all the cat pictures)." I guess someone got tired of renaming their little draconian pet projects.
From posting links to /r/worldnews and a few other subs about the TPP a few months ago, I know that this is simply the visible part of reddit's censorship. During that time a few months ago, before TPP-related links were allowed to make it to the front page of any sub, I noticed that the posts relating to TPP were simply disappeared. You could still find it via the URL, but in the sub's "new" list, and even in searches, the TPP links were simply not there to be seen or upvoted.
The masks are coming off. Presidents go on national teevee and simply lie to the public, knowing that everyone knows they're lying, knowing that they are completely opposing the heartfelt lies they made months ago that allowed them to keep their skins for another quarter. It seems they have forgotten which hand feeds them. It seems they haven't counted how many people they left with nothing to lose. Jokes about the stupidity of politicians and their attending co-parasites are everyday, and yet this show of it is unbelievable. Impressive, even. The novelty will soon wear off.
We have the power. The people who possess of consciousness have the ability to do just about anything, once we have decided on it. Many with this ability have not yet awakened. It seems that maybe the ride on the gravy train got to be too smooth, and many of its occupants decided it was time for the wheels to come off. I won't argue with them, but thanks for the help.

Not that I would turn down a helping hand, but call me deeply sceptical. I mean, fuck. All you have to do is look at how good the mainstream media in general has been at keeping anything resembling the truth from appearing on the airwaves. Most people have never heard of the demolition of building seven, and the ones that have sure as shit didn't hear about it from cnn. The empire has been invading countries with impunity, taking over governments, seeding mcdonalds and bombing families with unmanned drones, and at the same time what most MSM adherents are worried about are the fucking rhinos, patting themselves on the back for their activism, as sent from their iphone. And then some Jesus-looking actor appears on the very same babble box and calls for revolution. The whole thing stinks.
As a programmer, much of the mental work following my late awakening has been spent towards trying to figure out what the core of the problem is. That problem, as I see it, is blind obedience to authority. It's the reason most people can't see what was done to WTC 7 for what it is, because the man on the teevee said it was a fire. Really, I should stop saying "most people", because as the excellent Washington's Blog reports, more Americans think it was taken down by controlled demolition than believe the account spread by the mainstream media. But it wasn't always like this, and we definitely didn't get here because a celebrity went on teevee and told us it was OK to question the government.
I won't turn down the man's help in spreading awareness, but it should end there and it's obvious that it's not meant to. Already he's being held up as an icon. The things he said, those that I have heard, are elementary truths. Frankly, if what he said is news to anyone, in 2013, I'm not much interested in hearing their solution to global warming and saving the rhino, which are likely to be the only problems on their radar. If anyone has known these things and, following his public unveiling, decided that they now have permission to do something about it, I'm not much interested in hearing their thoughts about activism or liberty. If I wanted sound bites, I would get it straight from the mainstream media's arsehole. Better yet, I would go straight to the same Ye Olde Handbooke of Self-Defeating Activism that they work from.
If this movement turns into another revolution, it will accomplish nothing more than what the empire intended for it: More control, centralised. We don't need a revolution, we need to start thinking for ourselves and living differently. The government has no power that we don't give it, and we don't need to give power to anyone else to solve the problem we created; we need to stop giving our ability away to people who promise to take care of our problems for us.
If we have any hope of accomplishing anything positive with the momentum we have, we have to become a race of self-aware beings: People who can say "I disagree with you and your government", not "My movement disagrees on this issue" or "David Icke said..." or "Plato once wrote...". It's trust of totems and blind agreement with talking heads that got us into this mess and, despite what the fed's handbook says, we're not going to solve anything with more of the same.
It may seem surprising that feminism was created by rich old men, but that appears to be the case. As if the -ism wasn't a blatant enough clue, the goal is the demonisation of men in specific, but generally the demonisation of anything exceptional from the gray goo of sameness that the industry of political correctness is meant to enact on this planet.
The reason for this is relatively simple. Sweatshops aren't generally known to be full of men. Women, yes. Children, yes. But not men, unless you want to install suicide nets around your sweatshops, and that's just bad for PR. This is why women and children (and rhinos) have become first class citizens in the twisted mainstream culture of earth. If all human life is turned into either male apologist pussies, or women desperately trying to untie the Gordian knot of broken logic spouted from the mainstream media, then these rich old men will be free to complete the enslavement of humanity with impunity.
The media and the states suspiciously all together decided that it was illegal to give children a whack or two when they needed it, and surprise surprise, years later they throw up their hands in innocence, wondering why some young people today tend to generally lack discipline, will or any semblance of moral values.
No surprise that the troubles of today's youth dovetail nicely with the recent blitz of terror propaganda in the media concerning rape and rhino poaching. The message behind all this?: "Humanity has lost the ability to control itself, down to the man. Parents are failures (we don't know why), you're probably going to get raped (men are dangerous) and the Chinese are screwing up all the Rhinos (because they're limp). Wouldn't it be nice if an authority took all these problems off our hands?" No surprise that the largely unspoken, pre-fabricated solution to all this is always more control, centralised. That really should be a clue as to who will benefit.
The usual shills are almost in WW3 overdrive now, in the mainstream media and on social networking sites, trying to convince humanity that we're all actually a bunch of well-meaning idiots, unable to deal with simple logic because it wasn't covered in our propaganda. They go largely unchallenged because most people just can't be arsed to point out the obvious.
We have a saying in my country: You're busy scratching the lion's arse with a twig. Soon the new world order initiative will kick off in full, and the rich old men might accomplish something quite different than what they set out to do. But I think most people will simply turn off their teevees, and maybe never turn them on again.

Michael Hastings died in a single-vehicle automobile crash in his Mercedes C250 Coupé at approximately 4:25 a.m. in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles on June 18, 2013. A witness to the crash said that he seemed to be driving at the car's maximum speed before the car fishtailed and crashed into a palm tree. Witnesses described the car's engine being ejected 50 to 60 yards from the scene. One eyewitness said Hasting's car exploded prior to crashing, and some press reports have described the crash as suspicious; the Los Angeles Police Department has said there are no signs of foul play.
Earlier the previous day, Hastings indicated that he believed he was being investigated by the FBI. In an email to colleagues, which was copied to and released by Hastings' friend, Army Staff Sergeant Joe Biggs, Hastings said that he was "onto a big story", that he needed to "go off the radar", and that the FBI might interview them. WikiLeaks announced that Hastings had also contacted Jennifer Robinson, one of its lawyers a few hours prior to the crash, and the LA Times reported that he was preparing new reports on the CIA at the time of his demise. The FBI released a statement denying that Hastings was being investigated.
According to Biggs, Hastings' remains were cremated and returned to Vermont. Biggs stated that his family did not want Hastings to be cremated.
