Merry, Merry, Happy, Happy

This will be my last post for a week or so, as I am going to be traveling around to see friends and family. I plan to enjoy it and not read any news, nor log onto the internet.

Hope you all have a good holiday season, and that the New Year finds you well.

Libertarians and the Warfare State

I really like this kid.

It amazes me that someone this young can be more in tune with the real world then 90% of the 30+ crowd.

How We Became Barbarians

Why is it that the same people who scream about the "killing of innocent children" in the case of the unborn, then cheer for B-52 carpet bombing innocent children in Iraq?

In Getting in Touch with Your Inner Terrorist Michael Neumann explores this and other questions regarding our inhumanity towards those that are labeled "enemies".

Goodbye Gary

Gary Webb was found dead of a "self-inflicted gunshot" on Dec 10, 2004.

For those who do not know who he was and what he did read Gary's Obit.

See what happens when you don't tow the line.

National ID Red Alert!

Just a snippet for Stephen Yates' "National ID Red Alert!".

...Hegelian dialectic (thesis, antithesis, synthesis: the deliberate creation of a problem resulting in a panicked reaction, leading the masses to accept a predetermined solution it would never have accepted before. The entire "war on terrorism" is taking on a character very much like this. (I sometimes tell people that when the federal government declares "war" on anything, your best bet is to put your hands over your head and run for cover. All one need do is look at the "wars" on poverty and drugs, and wonder why the "war" on terrorism will be any different.)

Understanding the "Hegelian dialectic" is very important in understanding why and how things are happening within our government today. It is used to guide the people into doing what their rulers wanted them to do all along, but maintaining the illusion of the people being in control.

If it doesn't apply to our current situation, I guess it never will.
