FW: ‘Money Creation & Society’ Debate in UK Parliament

On Thursday 20th November 2014, for the first time in 170 years, UK parliament has debated the creation of money. Few people know that 97% of our money supply is created not by the government (or the central bank), but by commercial banks in the form of loans.

FW: Ferguson Attacks And Web Censorship Are Parts Of Same Story

Running 'Cause I Can't Fly: How It Really Is (2014-08-17)

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.

Batten down the hatches and stand fast

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.
