One Flew Over The Cuckoo Nest

Guest Winnie

Just watching C4 News and they lead with the banks story - Fannie, Freddie (which cringingly the BBC quip are 'curiously named' FFS they were set up when times were more innocent and less tasteless) . First up is Henk Potts - sorry but is he REMEDIAL? WHAT is he - some sort of monster joke? The Godzilla of financial commentators..???????

Then our fantasist, delusional, wounded elephant "leader" GB - who says all the fundamentals are sound.

We have reached a point where we actually are reliant on the media to steer us towards the truth, even though they are deflected from that goal by a million VIs and PR folk.............. (and in the case of the BBC, the licence fees.

This is a fully socialist state - think about it.............. ;)

It's propaganda on multiple levels,the likes of which make goebbels look like SAT stage 3.

The good news is that some of us have twigged,and we do,for now,have the luxury of alternative sources of information.

However,don't take this for granted.The primary shot across the bows of net censorship has already been fired.I suspect the next bit will come by way of assymetric warfare to **** up the financial system.

Think about it,if we are on the brink of war with iran/russia etc,then commerce is just as fair game in war.Given ur dependency on electronic trade these days,it's an obvious target.

...the new web 2.0 protocol will be the solution bit in the problem/reaction/solution trielectic.

to the untrained eye it will look like the saviour of the internet,but it's yet another item where you need to read the smallprint VERY carefully.

Thankfully, we still have the internet and this wonderful forum to provide a source of independent thought.

I've always found it strange that the biggest lesson after the end of the 2nd world war was never taught in schools, that was because our states looked at what Goebbels did and thought we'll have some of that better not tell the people otherwise we can't use it.

Nope, not a socialist state..... it's an Orwellian Corporate State. Big difference. It is large corporations, with their corrupt lobbying system, control of the media (Murdoch et al), contempt for customers and staff, vast PR departments and "friends" in the media and parliament, that is taking over UK PLC. If you think the cabinet, the PM or the treasury has that much power, think again. Even though there is monumental B()llshit coming out of government departments, for every piece of mis-information there, you can rely on ten times the amount of corpo-babble that is even more manipulative. There is no such thing as "Conservatism" or "Socialism" any longer. It is corporatisation that is taking over the world, and the politics of corpo-world has one mantra: Stuff everyone, we're here for short term gains and control.

Olympic torch flaming, we burn so sweet

The thrill of victory, the agony, defeat

We crush slow, flaming deluxe slow

For, judgement day cometh, conquer, it's war

Allow us to escape, hell glow spinning bomb

Pocket full of shells out the sky, Golden Arms

Tune spit the shit immortal combat sound

The fake false step make, the blood stain the ground

I would'nt be so sure its going to last:

http://euobserver.com/871/26407

Speaking to the EUobserver, Ms Mikko clarified her intentions: "We do not need to know the exact identity of bloggers. We need some credentials, a quality mark, a certain disclosure of who is writing and why. We need this to be able to trust and rely on the source."

"The Economist is a valuable brand, its articles are trusted by readers without contributors having to reveal their names," she said. "If there is a way to validate the best bloggers the same way that publishing in the Economist validates its writers, it should be done."

hmmm....

jono
