Benjamin Netanyahu is an Existential Threat to Too Much of the World: And now he

15-02-2015 21:58

We Americans (conditioned in the Hebrew tradition) have learned to see enemies in Biblical terms as one-sidedly evil as Satan. It takes a mass media of some very sophisticated accomplishment to continually portray people like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Muammar Gaddafi, several Middle Eastern leaders as Satan. One needs to be somewhat steeped in the Biblical Literature to create such black and white conclusions. This is one legacy the Bible has bequeathed to modern politics—the absolutism of naming enemy in terms of good versus absolute evil. Israel plays a master game of such portrayal of their supposed enemies. The current leader of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is the new version of Zionist Satan, but even this casting of totally evil Muslim figure is not good enough—we have a new entity that does the most obviously sensational sins—behead journalists and engage in egregious forms of violation—the ISIS/ ISIL phenomenon that America magically armed and some claim even trained (see in alternative media) and magically uses to create even more authoritarian war powers to an already criminal torture state that Barack Obama has no power to quell.

The Missing and Missing Still – Mining, Renaturation, Implications

19-01-2015 21:32

The Moon is kind of a cosmic climate recording that the Earth does not provide, because our atmosphere swallows most of it. But no material wind has ever blown the crust of the Moon, making the craters of meteorite impacts a historical record of activity measurements. Paralleling the era of temperature recordings for climate prognosis, the full planet has however experienced a similar phenomenon: Mining, most but not all of it for energy consumption, has left an unequivocal writing on it that can be read even by the futurologically blind. Millions of mines small to mega-large overwhelmingly inflicted during the energy boom generations leave a lasting message of the carelessness of this finite era in the face of these to come. Renaturation can only make them former mines – of everything from millstones to uranium – but not natural landscape. Neither are they reasonably filled up with debris to restore the destroyed surface. It is not merely the mortal sins like mountaintop removal or the “fossil trinity” of oil, coal and gas making up for the lion´s share of exploitation, but a general carelessness for the whispering of the “Mother of all Nightmares” in the sky which quite obviously is warning against the temptation to leave the ground beneath the feet in similar condition. This is the same species that speculates about the construction of planetary meteorite shields – not only with war ravaging the planet making any such shield a classical antiquity “wonder of the world”, but also with the contradictory intent of leaving something very similar to the impact it is allegedly meant to avoid.

Rep. Governor Jindal due to spread #FoxNewsFacts lies in speech in London

17-01-2015 16:22

USA Today article about bringing division to the UK
Republican Governor and "potential presidential candidate" Bobby Jindal is due to give a 'lecture' on Monday at the House of Commons in which USA media reports that he will "reiterate the disputed claim that Muslim immigrants have created "no-go zones" in Europe".

Such statements take us back to Enoch Powell politics and are naive and ill-judged prejudice at best, and deliberately reactionary, divisive and inflammatory at worst.

Continuing his examination of the decline of radical activism, Mikhail Goldman explores the theory that we are all very anxious.

My view on the `Honours System`

02-01-2015 01:48

`The UK Honours system recognises people of outstanding merit and those who have committed themselves to service to the nation. It's been around for centuries, but it was a closed system for many years. Only since 1993 has everybody been free to nominate. ` Thus mass murderers oops International Statesmen like Henry Kissinger are likely to receive an award as he did in 1995.
