ClandesTime Ep. 12: ClandesTime's End of 2013 Special

Straight from the man's mouth: "In this special end of the year episode of ClandesTime I reflect on the last 12 months, highlighting some news stories and offering my opinions on them. I also outlined how 2013 was a very important year for me personally and some of my hopes and plans for the coming year."

Max Keiser Talks 2014's Economics

I'll let the man's minions speak for him: "In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss whether or not 2014 will be one of economic and financial fallout from the 2013 Year of Bitcoin and Snowden. They look at Paul Krugman's claim that Bitcoin is evil because it's not backed by men with guns and the latest in the financial fallout from Snowden's NSA revelations in terms of contractual demands that data never enter the US. In the second half, Max interviews Barb Jacobson of basicincome2013.eu about the European Citizens Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income. Max compares it to the basic income provided to bankers through policies like quantitative easing."

Of course, here's the video. Like, subscribe, share, and have a Happy New Year.

In Case You Missed It: Corbett Talks Nullification

There's a YouTube channel called "Take a Second Look News", and most of its uploads are Corbett Report videos, making it a mirror channel. Well, today it uploaded Corbett's episode on Nullification and this episode is so good that I'm linking to this mirror (because having a backup is good) and pointing out that if you missed it then you should watch this episode where Corbett talks solutions.

First, the description: "Hardly a week goes by that we aren't faced with some new outrageous piece of legislation from the increasingly tyrannical government. But once these bills have been passed, what can we actually do about them? What if stopping this legislation was as simple as saying "no"? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we explore the nullification solution, a long-repressed piece of political history that offers us a way out."

Administration: End of 2013 & Plans for 2014

So, we're at the last Sunday of 2013. The new year starts on Wednesday. So, what's what?

The original host for this 'blog--Xanga--shat the bed earlier this year and I relaunched Empire here. I also decided to go from a weekly to a daily posting schedule, eventually formalizing my habit into a feature. So, most of the week I'm curating the best of the alternative media out there and bringing it to your attention; on Sundays, I choose to write and post my own thoughts about something of interest and relevance. This works well enough, for now, so I'm going to keep doing that going into 2014.

However, there is something that you readers should know now. I've harbored plans to write more long-form documents--novels and novel-length non-fiction--and I've held off due to my experiences with Microsoft Word in doing that sort of thing. In short, Word is very bad at doing that; it lacks the tools that I need to do that job to my satisfaction. This Christmas I received a copy of Scrivener from my folks, which is a software suite meant for just this sort of writing work, and I intend to make good use of it in the new year. While I will keep up this 'blog, don't be surprised if I change how I keep things up--queuing up posts well before they go live as an attempt to improve my time management--in order to make room for these long-form writing projects.

Also, I want to get into podcasting and making videos (something else I lack the tools and expertise for at this time) in order to further my interests. I have user accounts at various video, streaming and podcasting accounts and it's time that I start producing stuff to upload there instead of just using them to comment or join in the chat rooms.

It's time to step it up. Got to make Empire fall.

The Century of the Self: The History of Public Relations

Coming at you from Archive.org is a British documentary on the creation of Public Relations. Here's the blurb from Archive's page: "The history of "Public Relations" also known as manufacturing the public consent, from early days with Edward Bernays to today, from selling cigarettes to women to commercial wars dressed as "war for liberty", political campaing, state-sponsored corporate lies, and world-scale deception since 1920s."

Here's your link if you want to download the files.

Or you can follow the playlist from here. Enjoy, and remember to read Propaganda thereafter for more.

Buzzsaw: CIA Corruption Vs. Freedom in America with Ray McGovern

It's Buzzsaw's last big interview of 2013. Let's see what they use for the description: "CIA corruption and the war on the 4th amendment, plus the changing face of intelligence is discussed with former CIA-turned-activist Ray McGovern. Director of National Intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., and Edward Snowden's status as a patriot are discussed with McGovern in an interview that covers decades of intelligence gathering up to the Obama administration. Tyrel Ventura hosts this chat on Buzzsaw that is uncensored and full of need-to-know-information."

Take it for the opportunity to see what's what in the Intelligence community by one of its dissidents.

Ken O'Keefe's Documentary: "The United States of Hypocrisy vs. The Lawful Hawaiian Government"

Ken O'Keefe's 2000-ish film The United States of Hypocrisy vs. The Lawful Hawaiian Government is what I present to you today, straight from the man's YouTube channel. Below I'm reproducing in its entirety O'Keefe's description.

Description: "Produced by Ken Nichols O'Keefe in early 2001, this is the virtually unknown story of Hawaii and the hidden Genocide being committed by the American government with the use of 'blood quantum' for the purpose of eliminating the Hawaiian national; and the reason America does this? Because according to their own laws, America never lawfully annexed Hawaii*, therefore according to law Hawaii never became a state, and if the Hawaiian land was never lawfully annexed, the only true claimant to the land, is the Hawaiian national.

Could Hawaii become a free nation once more? Nichols O'Keefe not only argues the possibility, he shows the peaceful, lawful process by which the Hawaiians (kanaka maoli) intend to free themselves of the American occupation; an occupation that has lasted well over 100 years, an occupation that has turned their island paradise nation into an American Empire military outpost, one that continues to be used as a staging ground for wars of aggression resulting in ever more death and destruction.

In 2008 the legislature of the reinstated Hawaiian Government (with Representative Ken O'Keefe of District 6, Oahu) passed a law that outlaws all weapons of mass destruction in Hawaii. In this bold move the Hawaiian Government has reached out to the world to see just how serious we are about ending imperialism and American domination of the world. Thus far the world continues to be oblivious to this cause and O'Keefe argues is missing one of the greatest opportunities of our time to affect disarmament and increase the chances for peace.

* Annexation was affected by joint resolution because the two/thirds majority that was needed to annex territory was not possible. In addition, the US Congress confessed in UNITED STATES PUBLIC LAW 103-150 that Hawaii was obtained by a conspiracy to overthrow the lawful government of Hawaii and furthermore that the Hawaiian people and nation have never relinquished title to their national lands. And to add to that, the anti-annexation petition that was circulated at the time of the proposed annexation of Hawaii to the United States had the signature of virtually every single Hawaiian living at that time."

Merry Christmas! I Give You NINE HOURS AND MORE of Mark Passio

The nice people at Tragedy & Hope put up Mark Passio's massive all-day seminar on Natural Law and the Law of Attraction. I'm embedding all of those videos here because you really need to watch this shit, and yes that includes the other guy--Arthur Capozzi--doing the introduction. Merry Christmas, folks.

Justice Inequality For Rich & Poor, Black + White

This episode of The Lip's Crime Time talks about a recent murder case where a privileged young man got off on a light sentence. While some folks familiar with the local culture have argued that this sentence means that this man will be under the state's thumb well past the age of legal majority, not all see it this way. For my part, I see this sort of thing as the manifestation of the moral corruption of a community diseased by Empire. I'm embedding the whole episode below, but the Affluenza thing is discussed right away; the other cases relating to the episode's topic focus are of interest, as they too show this corruption. (Note: the host and the guests are far more mainstream in their thinking than what you see on Buzzsaw, so don't expect radically different argumentation.)

Administration: Holiday Weeks Notice

I too like to enjoy these year-end holidays, and I will prioritize remembering why I do this blog by keeping up those connections with friends and family; if I see something of note or import, you bet I'll post it straight away, but if I miss it and thus a day goes by without a post then DON'T PANIC. I am out having a good time with the important people in my life, not being eaten by zombie reptilians from Orion in a ritual sacrifice to Cthulhu as part of a scheme to gaslight the world into thinking that Channing Tatum is The World's Greatest Actor. Stay merry, my friends.

The Crossroads of Technological Unemployment

I think that we've hit a breakpoint this year. Specifically, I think we've passed a critical point in the automation of the world's economy, and now the end-result of technological unemployment is inevitable. Within the next 15 years more and more jobs will be eliminated entirely as machines and software prove themselves superior to human labor in all of the ways that matter to the owners, and with it comes a problem that has to be addressed if we are to benefit from these technological innovations. Let me elaborate on this issue.

Right now, our global paradigm requires that each individual somehow acquire an arbitrarily-determined amount of currency--paper or digits, really--to pay to stay alive. We do this through occupying various positions of employment, and most of us occupy positions whose compensation does not match the time and effort demanded of us; we are the ones who will soon be permanently unemployed because robots and software will make our positions irrelevant as well as too costly to retain. For those of us not immanently threatened, we will instead be degraded in prestige (and thus payment) through first de-skilling the position's duties and then automating away entirely; add 5-15 years to your obsolescence as a worker if you're a professional or tradesman, depending upon how much creativity or social interaction is required. If we lack employment, and we don't already have a commanding position of investable wealth to work for us, then we soon find our place tenuous and we slip out of acceptability and find ourselves marginalized.

The technological unemployment now occurring means that there will be fewer and fewer jobs, as well as fewer and fewer replacements, so that more people are permanently thrown out of the job market. They can't retrain faster than the would-be jobs are taken out through a new robot or software suite, so the remaining position that pay well will be those positions that require qualities that only Mankind possesses. Everything else will be done by a robot or by software. As we are soon to reach a tipping point where our economic paradigm no longer functions due to the unemployed population becoming far too large to handle, there is a choice that must be made for Mankind to continue.

Empire and its Thralls want to take this crisis point to cull the population, reduce it by a number so great--80-90%--that it freaks out the minds of many who confront the scenario before them. To make this happen, they want to weaponize the drones and automate the military and security services such that the Praetorian Guard flaw ceases to exist; they want the ability to give unquestioned orders to commit genocide upon any population that proves to be at all troublesome no matter the cause for discontent. In short, they want to BE Skynet and have unbeatable hordes of Hunter-Killer Terminators at hand to deal with those populations that do not succumb to the other measures that they want to use--and are now using--to slowly (in terms of decades or generations) make the same goal come about.

What Empire and its Thralls are now aware of as a threat is that enough individuals, around the gloves, now exist and are now communicating across the globe all that they know. Flaws are now corrected at rates heretofore unthinkable. Axioms in this wretched paradigm have been examined, and are now being used against the Thralls; we don't have to pay to be alive on this planet and a growing mass of the global population is aware that practical ways to make technological unemployment truly beneficial to Mankind are possible. Right now, the Swedes are due to vote on a national referendum to implement a Basic Income Guarantee of $2800/month (to use U.S. Dollars) and you don't have to do a god-damned thing to get it. This is in addition to any income you get from a job, and by itself is more than sufficient to keep you fed, clothed and housed at a respectable level; it takes away the existential threat to one's life, allowing you to pursue your passions and actually enjoy being alive instead of slaving away for the benefit of others.

Right now, it's a race between the would-be genocidal elite and the resistance that wants to liberate Mankind from the millenia of shit work that kills the spirit and ruins the lives of the vast majority of Mankind. If you want to see the better tomorrow, then participate in the monkeywrenching of the drone-enforced police state and support measures that wreck the paradigm entirely like Basic Income.

Corbett on Global Research TV: Media Lies While Syrians Die - Media Disinformation and the Syrian War

Corbett's description: "Months after the events took place, Pulitzer prize winning journalists and others are finally reporting about the lies and manipulations of the US government regarding the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria. Far from shining a light on the true situation in the country, however, these reports continue to avoid the underlying causes and explanations for what is happening in Syria, and the forces that are behind it. This is the GRTV Backgrounder on Global Research TV."

Yes, you can count on similar manipulations occurring in outlets tied to other actors who wanted something other than what the Anglo-American Establishment faction wanted out of Syria, so that dog don't hunt; what's important here is to remind we in the West that our so-called "civil servants" instead think themselves our masters and treat us with the contempt that imperialists always give to their subjects.

BoilingFrogsPost Roundtable 2: What is Greenwald Covering Up?

Now up at the Corbett Report is Episode 2 of the BoilingFrogsPost Roundtable. Here's what the description says: "Welcome to the second pilot edition of BFP Roundtable. In this episode James, Guillermo and I discuss the controversy surrounding the Glenn Greenwald, Omidyar-PayPal and NSA connections. We talk about the glacial pace at which the Snowden documents are being released, Greenwald's book and video deals, the new news venture with eBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, the things that Greenwald doesn't report on, and the public's tendency to put people on pedestals. Don't miss this controversial edition of the BFP Roundtable" (And I guess that "I" means Sibel Edmonds.)

I find the skepticism about Snowden refreshing in light of the uncritical attention that he gets out of Alex Jones and other alternative media outlets.

The KISS Maxim: Yes, It Applies Here Also

Today it's a short, but sweet, post.

As my support for Thomas Sheridan shows, I'm not much of a fan of the whackado. While I am well aware that Empire and its Thralls are a bunch of liars and schemers who prey upon us as vampires prey upon men, that doesn't mean that I assume the supernatural as an explanation. Psychology alone is more than enough to explain the presence of mind control, especially once considered in light of the practical applications we see in the craft of the stage magician--a non-predatory use of the con-man's skills for the purpose of delighting, entertaining and (at its best) educating the public in order to proof them against predatory deceivers--and the disciplines of Advertising/Marketing/Public Relations. No need to presume that shapeshifting invisible demons are at all in play when ordinary applied science explains things quite well.

As with "mind control", so it is with many others. Occam's Razor may often cut to Crazytown, but even then there's a certain skepticism that should be applied because there's no need to call upon powerful extra-dimensional entities to move a tea cup when you can just rig it conventionally ahead of time and bullshit the mark otherwise. Aliens, ghosts, demons, etc. should not be assumed to be the case out of hand; be like Sherlock and do what it takes to eliminate all impossibilities- and go one step further to push for confirmation, multiple times from independent entities. Then, whatever remains is the truth, however improbable, because those are the facts and that is the best explanation for them.

Yes, I'm repeating myself from some months ago, but it bears such repetition. This is not to say that I don't believe it impossible for whackado things to exist, but rather that it is wise and prudent to ensure that more mundane and reasonable means to make things happen are NOT in play before breaking out the ritual magic tools and making contact with entites from distant planes.

So, What Kind of Anarchist Are You Mr. Walker?

Previously, I wrote at length as to why I am not an Anarcho-Capitalist. Today, it's the other side, and by that I mean the Anarcho-Syndicalists/Communists/etc.- in other words, the left-leaning sort.

The problem with the Anarcho-Capitalists (henceforth, "An-Cap(s)") is that they refuse to recognize Capitalism as the predatory thing that it is, which is why cronyism and gangsterism are inevitable developments and cannot help but lead to the creation of the State as a means of creating a differential edge that cannot be countered: the power of the State in service to their interests.

By comparison, the problem with Anarcho-Collectivists (as that is what synidcalism, communism and so on build their argument upon) is that they refuse to recognize that the same phenomenon that produces the centralization of power in the An-Cap paradigm still exists in the Anarcho-Collectivist paradigm (henceforth, "An-Col(s)"): the presence of the potential for centralized power draws predatory people who seeks that power and will do what it takes to get it, inevitably leading to corruption of the collective and its transformation into a new State.

Let me break that down.

The premise of the An-Cols is that practical sovereignty is only viable when one surrenders or sublimates their individual existence and identity into that of a group of some sort--a union, a village, a free company, etc.--which possesses the economic capital required to establish and maintain a truly autonomous community. The small religious commune is an An-Col manifestation. The worker-owned collective is an An-Col manifestation. The problem with these, and all others that conform to this pattern, is that these are not emergent gatherings that perform a function that Natural Law demands. You don't need a co-operative to cultivate land, grow food, establish a homestead and raise a family; you don't need a commune, a union, or any other formal social construct either.

The family and the homestead are naturally-occurring emergent organizations, existing to fulfill purposes necessary for individuals to survive and thrive, and when no longer necessary they dissolve as easily as they emerged. These lawful institutions, and these alone, are all that Mankind needs to overcome any challenge or achieve any goal. This is because these entities are most friendly to the development and refinement of the individual when functioning properly; all other institutions--especially the State--are poor copies of these two naturally-emerging institutions. Even when they function improperly, they function well enough to still be better than any artifice of Man. These poor copies lack the elements that prevent, for the most part, the creation of cults and other destructive mind controls that turn these things into gangs and then into new States as the transformation concludes and crystalizes into the end-stage of predatory paradigms.

That's right, folks: I am an Individualist. I see collectivism of all sorts as nothing more than openings for predatory personalities--psychopaths--to slip into positions of power within these collectives, turn them away from their original purpose and towards making them into personal fiefdoms. The end result is that these become cults--religious, business, political or otherwise--and cults inevitably turn their totalitarian authoritarianism away from their own and towards outsiders, which is usually when they become States. In other words, the An-Col path is also a sucker's path because it is nothing more than the creation of the conditions needed to create a cult or gang, and then grow it from there until it becomes the State and thus has become the thing it was made to destroy.

The Individualist path, which eschews Capitalism as being predatory inherently and Collectivism as being a self-destructive delusion, seeks nothing but mastery over oneself. The family naturally emerges because being a child is the first experience of being the student, and raising a child is the practice of being the mentor as dictated by life itself; the household naturally emerges as the most efficient way to collect and distribute the resources required to accomplish this task. As each child is a unique individual, only the unique attention of individual mentors is sufficient to fully develop one's abilities and discover one's method of employing them in this life. No form of collectivism permits this in practice (just as no capitalist system does in practice) as collectives see people as capitalists do--just human resources, one or two steps away from being proper money--and therefore cannot help but to violate the inherent rights of a child in service to unnatural demands of the predatory paradigm. It is child sacrifice to blood-thirsty demon-gods in all but name. Only by holding to the way of the Individual, perfectly sovereign in himself and acknowledging the same quality in all others, can one fulfill the potential to achieve true and real autonomy and freedom that Anarchism offers to Mankind.

This is what sort of Anarchist I am, and by walking this path I will live to see Empire fall.

The Corbett Report: How to Nullify the NSA (and every other tyrannical government agency)

I'll let Corbett's words work for themselves:

Description: Hardly a week goes by that we aren't faced with some new outrageous piece of legislation from the increasingly tyrannical government. But once these bills have been passed, what can we actually do about them? What if stopping this legislation was as simple as saying "no"? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we explore the nullification solution, a long-repressed piece of political history that offers us a way out.

The Copyright Theater on YouTube over Videogames is a Sign of the Times

This is an unusual choice, but I'm bringing it to your attention because it is indicative of a larger trend. It is no secret that much new technology is disruptive of established business models, networks and practices; such disruptions will not go unanswered, and these usually take the form of legal acts made viable by corrupt politicians and an ignorant judiciary. What we're looking at here is a challenged sector, under threat, striking back at those who seek to supplant these established actors.

As I said above, this is indicative of a larger trend, and that trend is one of challenged elite actors getting their Sith Lord--Empire Strikes Back--and attempting via legal and economic manipulation (fostered by compliant media and incompetent talking heads) to shut down the efforts of individuals who (for reasons fair or foul) seek to make obsolete and irrelevant the established system of domination and control- starting with information and other data. This is a specific example of suppression of challengers to Empire as an example of the larger trend.

The video below, therefore, is focused on the matter of certain videogame corporations acting against YouTube channels and personalities breaking the established marketing scam that pretends to be videogame journalism; when you watch it, read the issue in the form of Empire's Thralls in the economy using bought-and-paid-for political assets to suppress alternatives to their media infrastructure- and with it, their control over what information (what data) individuals access (and thus control over their thinking; control of input means control of output). Also, pay attention to the point made about the importance of the personality in presenting a message; we would be well served in heeding the importance of performance.

Thomas Sheridan: The Normalization of Psychopathy

Sheridan's radio show spends its first hour today on the emerging trend, fostered by the elite, to normalize psychopathy now that Sheridan and others like him (as explained at his linked blog post) have forced the elite to react to their exposure of what psychopathy really is and how to deal with it.

Larken Rose: What Limits?

I'll let Larken's description speak for itself: "To all those who still talk about representative government, will of the people, consent of the governed, and limited government, it's time to face reality. Here is one reason why." (Hint: Because it's all bullshit made-up word-sorcery that has no substance in reality.)

Buzzsaw: Economic Hitmen and the American Empire with John Perkins

Buzzsaw's latest long-form interview is by Sean Stone with John Perkins on what the Anglo-American Empire (a.k.a. the Globalist Regime, the Corporate Empire, the Bansters Syndicate, etc.), what I refer to as the latest incarnation of Empire's paradigm. He needs no further introduction; his Wikipedia page will do, and you really should read the books that he wrote--Confessions of an Economic Hitman and Hoodwinked--to get what he's about. In short, Perkins exposed what Capitalism really is and how it really works when it reaches its mature form- contrary to Libertarian/Anarcho-Capitalist claims.

Empire Consumes The Gifted

Synchronicity happens. Today, I get up and while I'm drinking my coffee I'm checking in with my friends and acquaintances via the usual social media outlets when I see that a game designer by the name of John Wick shared a link to this article about existential depression in gifted children. A Google search reveals plenty of reposts, so I won't reproduce it again here (follow the link and come back), but as I read the article I felt that familiar anger again.

You see, 30+ years ago I was that gifted child suffering acutely and severely from existential depression. As this was the 1970s and 1980s in a working class family, a working class neighborhood and a working class school district (in other words, a system designed to produce proles--human resources--for the corporate sector to consume and discard) you should not be surprised to find that the adults legally responsible for my safety and well-being UTTERLY FAILED to do their job. Their incompetence, as I know now, was not entirely accidental; the Prussian system we use world-wide to school and train (not educate) children has no intention of making good use of gifted children that don't arise out of the high-class families that run and own this system of human resource farming that fraudulently calls itself "civilization". (Yes, that's a global thing; it's just as much a shit-canning of the common man in the West as it is in the East, in the North as in the South- if you're not one of the elite, you're just a thing to be stuck in place and ground up before being yanked out and cast off as old and busted. That's our global system, and no amount of gilding the cage can conceal this from those with eyes to see and ears to hear.)

My abandonment of this shit milieu, my transformation of my frustration into an anger-fueled passion to expose to one and all that this is not the real world--but instead a bullshit fake meatgrinder that pretends that it's a wonderland, a Matrix where everyone's conned into thinking that they can be what they want if they just (insert bullshit fraudulent claim here)--stems from that childhood experience. I learned, as I now see clearly, that I got at a pre-school age just how full of shit this world really was; I lacked the language to express it, and I had not the experience to process it, but I knew that this world was bullshit and no amount of cajoling from the system--formally, by way of government agents, or informally by the adults in my life--did anything to prove otherwise. Indeed, their reactions confirmed my findings.

Every other aspect of "normal" life just served to reinforce this conclusion over the years. Since the physical frontiers are closed, I abandoned this world emotionally and mentally instead for those frontiers. (And yes, as soon as that former frontier reopens, I am out of here. No, that story about the company claiming to colonize Mars is not believable; undersea colonization will happen first.) It's not worth saving, let alone serving, so I now await the inevitable collapse that Empire's fraud must experience. Then there will be a window of time, a liminal space, where I can intervene and put down this cancer for good and never again should there be any of this horror visited upon we that are gifted. Call it the Magneto Option if you like, but that would be misleading; I am not only an anarchist, but also an individualist (as no institution created by Mankind has ever done what individuals in lawful community could not do, and Empire always turns them into organs of his parasitic predation; we don't need what is not emergent in Nature when it comes to such things- the family alone is lawful).

Empire consumes the Gifted. It fears what these best expressions of Mankind could do if it didn't prey upon them, turn those it can into Thralls and cripple or kill the rest. (I could myself lucky to merely live in exile.) If we want this phenomenon to end, then we must kill Empire and bring the system down for good. Empire Must Fall.

Buzzsaw: Congress Failing Grades, Pentagon Weapons Sale + Bitcoins Worth More Than Gold

It's Friday, so TheLip.TV has a new episode of Buzzsaw for us to take in, and here's what the interns who handle the video uploads wrote as the video's description:

"Congress has received a 6% approval rating from the public, innocent black students have been arrested while waiting for the bus, and the value of Bitcoins has soared to above that of gold. We look at these stories, plus Gov. Scott Walker asking parents to donate their Christmas gift money to his campaign, more civilian death fallout in Afghanistan, the Pentagon selling off weapons to various countries, and King Leopold II--the overlooked genocidal ruler of the Congo. We also reflect on the death of Nelson Mandela, all on the Buzzsaw news with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace"

If you like what you see, cut out the middleman and go subscribe to their channel directly.

The True Costs of War: Stefan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio speaks at the University of Toronto

Today, I'm bringing to you an address that Stefan Molyneux gave recently at the University of Toronto in Canada regarding war and how the institutions that benefit from it conceal the true costs that warfare imposes upon all involved in it and instead sells both victor and victim on a fantasy that makes it acceptable--even when on the business end of it--to them instead.

Peter Joseph in Berlin: Economic Calculation in a Natural Law / Resource-Based Economy

Peter Joseph gave this address at a Zeitgeist Movement event in Berlin, Germany recently. This is a long one, coming in at two hours at 45 minutes, but it is well worth your time. The address, as the title indicates, focuses upon the issue of economic calculation--one of the consistent complains from the Anarcho-Capitalists--and how it works in a world that's run on a resource-based economy.

If you want to skip ahead to the bits that most interest you:

Jesse Ventura - The Assassination of JFK & American Geopolitics

My former governor appears on Red Ice Radio to talk JFK, politics and conspiracy. I now quote the description: "Jesse Ventura is the former Independent governor of Minnesota. He is also a former US Navy Frogman, professional wrestler, movie actor, visiting fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and New York Times bestselling author. He was the host and executive producer for TruTV's Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. He'll discuss his new book, They Killed Our President: 63 Reasons to Believe There Was a Conspiracy to Assassinate JFK. 2013 marks the fifty-year anniversary of the tragic event that changed the way citizens view the honesty and integrity of their government. Today, the majority of Americans believe the government was involved in both the assassination and the cover-up. According to a 2003 Gallup poll, 75 percent of Americans believe some kind of conspiracy occurred. We'll discuss absurdities and suspicious behavior surrounding the case against Lee Harvey Oswald, who was accused by the Warren Commission to be behind the assassination of JFK, despite denying the involvement and not spending a single day in court. Two days later, while being transferred from police headquarters to the county jail, Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby in full view of television cameras broadcasting live. Later, we'll discuss current politics, including foreign policy, political parties, gun control and one world government. Jesse ends speaking about the words of the America forefathers who reminded us to remain vigilant in order to keep the country intact."

Jon Rappoport - The Individual vs. The Planned State

Today I'm bringing to you the most recent episode of Radio 3Fourteen, a Red Ice Creations radio show.

Description: Jon Rappoport is an investigative journalist, author and publisher of the web site nomorefakenews.com. He returns to discuss the ongoing conspiracy to collectivize humanity. Collectivism isn't about a mass outpouring of share and care and is not what will bring freedom. We'll discuss collectivism as a psyop and the usual prose formulated around this grand psyop. Jon explains the historical roots of collectivism that has tentacles in government, education and social sciences. Then, we talk about how the Individual is fading out as a concept. Individualism is becoming a myth, which plays in perfectly to facilitate the agenda of the "planned state." We talk about why the state hates the individual. Jon also elaborates on how collectivist reality is being manufactured and accepted. He says, "This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a heavily armed, surveilled Disneyland. Everyone takes the same rides and eats the same cotton candy. In this cartoon called reality, whoever declines and defects is reeducated." Later, we discuss the collectivists' faith in state and the prospect of a socialist, egalitarian utopia with all its contradictions. Meanwhile, the notion of individual freedom and a free society is being associated with fear and evil deeds. The massive media control, brain washing and propaganda is indicative of just how afraid the controlling factions are of the individual. The hour ends speaking on freedom, which has no limit.
