The greatest fears lead to the greatest tyrannies. Our governments have created fear from thin air, it permeates our minds, our worldview and now our institutions. When examined these fears are quite unreal except that they have a real effect on individual and mass perceptions. Under the tyranny of this fear governments the world over are controlling the media and the masses, engaging in mass spying on each other and their own citizens.
An educated, reflective citizenry capable of critical thinking must ask one question above all right now: Who are the ‘terrorists’?
Education, too long a tool for over-zealous politicians to impose their worldview, has become nothing more than the means to getting a job (which probably doesn’t exist). Education needs to aim at fulfilling individual potential in a much wider fashion, and particularly to help individuals realise their ability to think critically about this complex world we live in.
The BBC have been complicit in the child abuse perpetuated by Jimmy Saville and associates in many ways. This is not to say it was official corporate policy, however, unofficially, powerful people at the top covered things up to protect their powerful friends.
Saville was a regular visitor to Haut de la Garenne – the children’s home in Jersey where it was alleged many high level people from the UK mainland including politicos and etc. used to engage in their distasteful habits of abusing kids. This was and is subject to cover up.
Hollie Greig’s case has been and is subject to cover up as soon as high level politico’s were implicated.
There is cover up and there is carelessness everywhere you look in this field.
Will you allow yourself to join the dots or do you want to be careless, remain ignorant of the true situation and thus, through your own carelessness, be a part of the problem?
Don’t bullshit yourself that these incidents are isolated – they are not.
Go there to vote for Julian Assange – in court today he was denied his freedom despite such luminaries as Ken Loach, John Pilger and Jemima Khan standing bail of £20,000 each.
Justice must be done here.
Those who are in a position to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize need to ask themselves if they want to live in a world where, as Congressman Dr Ron Paul so eloquently said, “If telling you the truth makes you a traitor we’re in big trouble”?
Assange deserves Time Magazine Award and the Nobel Peace Prize this year – the whistle blower systems he has in place will make Government around the world, corporations and others accountable to the press. Behind all the rhetoric this is the real reason Assange sits in gaol tonight.
Thanks to the Wikileaks “cablegate” releases we now see in writing what many have known for a long time: Russia is virtually a Mafia state and Putin has little distance between him and the Mafiosi.
Thanks to the journalism of Panorama we now see clearly what many have known for a long time: that FIFA is also virtually a Mafia state and Sepp Blatter has done little to reverse things (but then there was some $50 million in bribes unattributed to anyone in the ILS scandal).
It’s pretty obvious why Russia won: not because of the Panorama investigation throwing the judges off – but because the Russian Mafia gave the FIFA Mafia a “helping hand” in deciding how to bid. Some Swiss bank accounts just got fatter.
