Starving for Justice

By on Sep 13, 2014 in Politics | 0 comments

When we speak of the imprisoned protesters in Egypt, many of whom are now, and have been, on a hunger strike, many of us think of the physical pain itself; how hungry you get in the first few days, what you feel as your body starts adapting to the lack of food, and if it’s a complete hunger strike, the body’s slow trip towards finality. The physical pain is indeed, horrific, and, depending on how you strike, can be fatal, but, believe it or not – it is not the main issue – the human body, in the final analysis, adapts, and the end of this particular ‘adaptation’ is often death. The real issue here is the mental, intellectual, and spiritual anguish one must feel in order to resort to turning his own body into a megaphone by which he or she hopes to reach society… It is the anguish of a prisoner, who knows that he is unjustly imprisoned (because...

Another Article Removed by Times of Israel

By on Aug 4, 2014 in Politics | 0 comments

Earlier today. I saw an article on the Times of Israel titled “Does This War Make Me Look Fat?” – I posted it on Facebook, but then it was removed. This is the second time this week that The Times of Israel has published and then deleted articles that clearly reveal just how insane and callous Zionism can be – the first was an article explicitly called “When Genocide is Permissible”. In any case, for those who are interested – I managed to copy the article in full before it was removed : First – a screenshot – And now – the actual text – in full – BEGIN ARTICLE Try as may, I cannot stop rockets with M&M’s. Hershey’s syrup doesn’t stop the sound of booms, Cocoa Pebbles don’t stop sirens, and chocolate, glory be thy name, doesn’t stop war. I have tried in earnest to employ all of these methods and alas, Operation...

Philip K. Dick on Israel

By on Jul 23, 2014 in Featured, Politics | 0 comments

This is a letter Philip K. Dick wrote in response to Israel’s bombing of the Osirak reactor in Iraq in 1981. It’s worth reading these days because, as with his science fiction, PKD remains prophetic…. Philip K. Dick is, arguably, the science fiction author, and the mind behind such movies as Blade Runner, Minority Report, The Adjustment Bureau, and many others. The letter is fascinating in many regards; for a start PKD’s approach is well thought out, in his first paragraph he outlines the logical problems inherent in Israel’s attack on Osirak. In the second, he discusses the state of mind that leads to such paranoia, and in the third, he warns Israel, and insinuates that they are possessed by the memory of a madman… Read on – (From ‘The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick 1980-82’)… Dear Ron Hendren, Regarding Israel’s...

Imagine…

By on Jul 6, 2014 in Politics | 2 comments

Imagine that your country was run by a corporation. Now imagine this corporation has managed to take over at least a third of the country’s assets. Imagine if this corporation enacted laws that allowed it to enlist most of the young men in the country as slave labor, getting paid peanuts, and having to work all day, sometimes in productive jobs, and sometimes sending men to do nothing more than smoke cigarettes as they stood in a deserted spot of land. Imagine that this corporation was run by a cabal of businessmen who were above all the laws, and subject to none of them – so that they were not held accountable to the country or to its laws. Imagine further that this corporation could not only ignore the law but could actually change laws to suit itself. Imagine if this corporation was not only exempt from taxes, but was actually partly funded by taxes, and received further...

The Colors of Fascism

By on Jun 5, 2014 in Featured, Politics | 0 comments

You have to remember, fascism is not a specific color, but an attitude, and all colors, once they seek to impose themselves, can become fascist. This is why you have red fascists, and blue fascists, and green fascists, and purple fascists, and all other kinds, and this is why people get confused sometimes…think somebody is a friend when, in fact, they turn out to be an enemy. If you are red, and fighting green, all the red fascists come to your aid and call you heroes, but when you battle red fascism, suddenly you are called traitors. When you turn to fight off the red fascists, all the green fascists think themselves allies, they want to come to your aid! Surely you are part of their ‘green’ revolution! But you are no such thing, you are simply fighting off fascists of all colors, because, in the end, fascism deprives all colors of taste, whether you want to think of...
