Failure of the Affluent State

16-05-2006 05:28

When the State fails and criminals steal the reigns of power corruption filters through State institutions. The agencies and the regulatory ‘authorities’ usually ‘toe the line’ and therefore cannot be trusted to serve the interests of the people. When the government becomes a den of thieves, liars and murderers it is the people who must restore sanity and legitimate government.

Appealing to the United States is not very appealing

16-05-2006 04:05

Is not very appealing
"...The people will scrutinize our presidencies. Did we (manage) to bring peace, security and prosperity for the people or insecurity and unemployment? Did we intend to establish justice or just supported (special) interest groups, and by forcing many people to live in poverty and hardship, made a few people rich and powerful -- thus trading the approval of the people and the almighty with theirs? Did we defend the rights of the underprivileged or ignore them? Did we defend the rights of all people around t he world or imposed wars on them, interfered illegally in their affairs, established hellish prisons and incarcerated some of them? Did we bring the world peace and security or raised the specter of intimidation and threats? " -- Mahmood Ahmadi-Nejad

The final version of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill will be voted on by MP's tomorrow. Well publicised government amendments have given the impression that the government has "climbed down". In fact, Conservatives are enthusiastically greeting a Bill which still allows ministers to change just about any law they like.

The CRIME that Covered-up the Coup

15-05-2006 09:31

The 'Project for a New America': "The theft of this nation was a very shabby affair, carried out by amateurs whose true motives are just beginning to unravel. Had there been media to cover what was happening while this was going on, none of this could have continued!"

RMIT=Brain Tumour Factory!

Brain-tumour-causing mobile phone towers
I have been astounded by the story of the RMIT Business campus and the brain-tumour-causing mobile phone towers. The most shocking thing has been the stampede by 'experts' to deny linkage b/w towers and cancers. Throw away your mobile phones immediately! They are addictive and deadly!

Size matters - public opinion doesn't

12-05-2006 21:16

In whose interests?
The transformative power of the new nanotechnologies signals that it is time for us to take the democratisation of science seriously. Over the past 200 years, scientists have altered our world as much, if not more than elected officials, yet they are accountable to nobody save the corporations that increasingly fund them. We need a new way of thinking about science and technology that allows the development of technology to be shaped by the needs of the community and the environment — not the other way around. Just as scientists are exploring uncharted territory through the emerging nanotechnologies, so must we also explore uncharted territory in terms of how these technologies are managed — and crucially, in whose interests. The development of a nanotechnology strategy for Australia deserves far more public involvement and scrutiny than it is currently being given.

Australian Wheat Board inquiry underscores real motivations behind Iraq war

12-05-2006 04:14

The UN “oil-for-food” program
The same is true of the AWB inquiry. Its aim has not been to establish the truth about Australian wheat sales to Iraq, but rather to try to bury the scandal. Australian Prime Minister John Howard chose a trusted acquaintance, Terence Cole, to head the inquiry and ensured its terms of reference were narrowly confined to examining the AWB’s wrongdoing, thus excluding his government’s role in supervising the contracts.

Fundamentally Sick: Freud and Human Society

11-05-2006 15:55

Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis, spent little time evaluating or assessing cultural phenomena, his preferred field of study was the then unmapped areas of the human mind. However, the failure of his patients to negotiate/navigate the world forced Freud to evaluate the effects produced by the interaction of the individual and society. Freud and many of his peers, arrived at a similar conclusion regarding the condition of modern society – society, they concluded, is fundamentally sick! Freud no doubt drew on his uncanny skills as an expert analyst and diagnostician to arrive at that astounding assessment! Freud’s obsession with the male generative organ and his cocaine abuse aside, his contribution to the understanding of human psychosis and pathological behaviour is of considerable value today.
