Al Qaeda and the Taliban winning the ‘war on terror’.


BBC Radio 4 0715 Oxford Research Group study finds that al Qaeda, not America, is winning the ‘war on terror’: hear from the report author, Professor Paul Rogers.

I mentioned the Oxford Research Group months ago, they produced a publication called Endless War. The waste of lives, mostly the innocent ones goes on. This has given me another wake-up call, compounded because silly manmade disasters threaten my children’s lives long after I am dead. Daddy did nothing- this might not be so feasible now, even though I feel too old to put up any proper fight. Where are the young people in the USA and Britain? Surely, they will come out of the woodwork soon? Their ‘balls’ and their ‘freedom’, are caught in an economic trap of slavery to mortgages and children; set up by inept government, taxes and misspending money that is just below the level of when total despair sets in.

We stopped Vietnam and told the ‘grown-ups’ in power to go to hell. With all the information they have and from new modern technology, have they been brainwashed or are they far too comfortable that they will accept a blinkered submission to authority. When will they break? Are we so deep within a totalitarian police state that the very youngest young can’t get out and fight fairly the older authority?

The history of some of the very large modern public popular demonstrations is interesting:

The Miners’ Strike – put down by heavy-handed Government and Police brutality.

Poll Tax – small in comparison, very violent, comparatively small – very effective!

Hunting Demonstration – ineffective – Several large (est) London demo’s and large protests in rural towns, and cities; over a protracted period. Also, large demonstrations at rural event gatherings and horse race courses. Probably the longest running continuous protest ever that is continuing today. Law passed ineffective and shambolic.

The Anti War – ineffective. Large London demo, and a large regional protest, in towns, and cities, over several years. The international scale of the demos’ remarkable. No change of policy by the government, which insist on getting deeper and deeper into a mire.

BBC Radio 4, for G’s sake. Where are the Pirate Pop Stations, to stir everyone up? They are all so ‘nice’ today. I can’t remember being that nice as a kid! We told everyone, and everything to f…off, and then tried to change the world!

Amnesty International, today (a few years ago) says that Britain is complicit in Secret Rendition. We can compare that with the same attitude of Jews going into the gas chambers, authorised by Hitler and his government, crossing the various countries by the cattle trains in Europe. Not on the same scale, we know of, yet. We don’t know that is a problem! We only think, we do know, and it must be less than this of course: it could not be really any worse, could it?

Time for kids with young brains to lead the way, and put the fuddy-duddies out of their feather-bedded misery, politics and their business.

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting.

Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
