Journal Journal: Complete Dysfunction and Utter Impotence 7

In other words we are dealing here with an institutional and well-funded controlled opposition apparatus. This may explain, what so often seems on the part of the Left and Progressive discourse generally, like complete dysfunction and utter impotence - whether in labour matters, domestic politics, foreign affairs, global wars and, of course, Palestine.


In the end, I doubt whether anyone within the progressive network possesses the intellectual capacity and ideological stamina to endure such a serious discussion.


Journal Journal: "They Are About Power" 11

"American Senators tell us that Brazil should not worry, because this is not "surveillance," it's "data collection." They say it is done to keep you safe. They're wrong. There is a huge difference between legal programs, legitimate spying, legitimate law enforcement -- where individuals are targeted based on a reasonable, individualized suspicion -- and these programs of dragnet mass surveillance that put entire populations under an all-seeing eye and save copies forever. These programs were never about terrorism: they're about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They're about power."


Journal Journal: GOOGLE'S REAL PLAN 8

It's so f*cking crazy, that you'll think I'm the one gone bonkers, for saying it...

They are batshit billionaires, convinced that enough capital and technology can have them produce physical immortality. They want to upload their beautiful minds into replaceable robots, forever.

That's the ultimate aim behind those difficult to fathom investments and acquisitions.

But the human mind? It's an effect not an artifact. It cannot be preserved independent of its "emitter". The superficial characteristics of the effect can be recorded and even simulated. No matter HOW good the recording, there's no VHS player that will ever BE Grandma.

But these are fools - who in a world of madness, are heralded as visionary.
