In response to increasing flagrant attempts to censor political websites, including Infowars and Prison Planet, not in Communist China, but in the U.S. and the UK, we are running a special contest with a top prize of $5,000 in order to encourage people to get active and educate others about the growing threats to Internet freedom.
As we reported yesterday, major transportation hubs like St. Pancras International, as well as libraries, big businesses, hospitals and other public outlets that offer wi-fi Internet, are blacklisting alternative news websites and making them completely inaccessible to their users.
On weekly basis we receive e mails from across the US and the UK from people who have attempted to visit our websites yet found them to be blocked by filtration software that lists them as “hate” or “violence”.
There at the door stood a man with a badge. He said: "Are you the man known as Lee?" I replied: "Yes I am, what do you want?" He said: " I have a warrant for your arrest! You are charged with falling in love on company time".
What! I exclaimed! You have to be kidding me! "Come on son, put your hands in front of you so I can put these hand cuffs on. I have to take you in. You know it's against Eclipse Aviation policies to use company time for love and against the state laws of New Mexico. Love is only allowed off company property."
So he carted me off to jail to be locked up with the other criminals. You know the mother rapers, father rapers, child molesters and such.
Whew! Then I woke up in a cold sweat!
My academy room mate Chip lived in the town of Huntington Beach, and his parents had thoughtfully flown off to Palm Springs for the week-end, leaving Chip and me with their wheels - a pearl white 1964 Chevrolet Impala two-door with red leather interior and wire-rimmed white-wall tires - talk about styling!
Globalization in its ultimate form essentially creates a world monopoly consisting of a central government, economy, and media dominated by a small number of dangerously powerful and incestuous entities. Not only will this take away the common citizen's freedom and individuality, but it will also make the Earth a very dull place to live. Do you want your planet dominated by a few megacorporations, feeding your mind and body whatever they decide is best for you (i.e., best for them)? Think about it, and digest some Enlightenment, before it is too late.
The inevitable result of unnecessary censorship is a build up of silent resentment. The quickest way to force someone who talks into someone who acts, is to compel silence upon a subject that worries them; then, like steam in a pressure cooker, it is merely a matter of time before their suppressed anxieties erupt into action. The inevitable consequence of legislation that forbids any spoken, or written, expression of hatred, must be violence. By forbidding the expression of racial hatred the law is promoting racial violence. So the first persons who should be prosecuted under such laws are the people who enacted the laws, as they are committing the very crime the laws proscribe, inciting racial violence. Which means the laws are absurd.
Helen, a member of Parramatta writers club in 1992, was a citizen of Kiev during the Red Terror, and described living with official truth and the constant threat of arrest. Knowing the content of the latest party newspaper was critical to avoiding internment, as public contradiction, either directly or indirectly, meant denouncement to the KGB. If you complained about being hungry when food shortages were not officially recognised, then you became an enemy of the state.
As a kid, I was in the midst of the rebellion of influences of both the beat and hip generations. I had been an avid reader from philosophy, psychology, and religions. As well as any other book I could find giving an idealist view of utopia, of what life could be like. I had been a greaser in school, but eventually turned in my switch blade for love beads. I either drove, rode my bike or hitch hiked all over the country visiting communes, thinking; yes this was it, we were going up against the establishment. Hundreds of thousands of us. We could change the world. What happened?...
