It’s not enough to be there, in terms of emotional sympathies, for a cause if it does not help to inspire real change.
For instance, in the case of Antonio Buehler and his fight against APD. THere is an Occupy Event on the 19th that will meet and protest outside of the building, but then there is also Oathkeepers on his otherside working on providing him a legal team and cheaper legal advice. (he’s facing a third degree felony) What would he rather have? sympathies or finances? the occupy spectacle is nice if it affords OATHKEEPERS more resources, but chances are occupy will exhaust its own resources, asking more from its own under-funded people, while oathkeepers will ALSO take a hit. Instead of using occupy and oathkeepers together to perform the same task, we put them at odds. Solidarity should be a mutual commitment to fighting a common enenmy inspite of your obvious differences
“International solidarity is “not an act of charity but an act of unity between allies fighting on different terrains toward the same objectives.” – Samora Machel”
Solidarity is enough to conquer the power elite, its not enough to sit around and feel for someone else. good intentions thoughts emotions and prayers are the key to carving out a positive mark on the world, but at the same time if these good intentions and thoughts convinvce us that we are doing some real good in the world by them ALONE then we are missing the point.
Solidarity can be enough if we work together, we need more to fight police, the armed guards, and those who continue to defend the power elites goals. but to do this we need to network occupy, oathkeepers, alex jones, ron paul, and all others who are fighting power elite (who might disagree on governing principles)
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
THE SECOND COMING
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
Incase you needed a list of the “super rich”, this is very old but still very crucial. these men from 1970-2006 ran a country without a major industry to postindustrial financialization . Good job gentlemen, mad skillz
Sean Hoare, the reporter who was the main beacon of light against the rupert murdoch case was “found dead” in his apartment monday morning. The neighbors were shocked because of how well he seemed to be doing lately. At about 9.15pm, three hours after the Guardian revealed Hoare had been found dead a police van marked “Scientific Services Unit” pulled up at the address, where a police car was already parked. Two officers emerged carrying evidence bags, clipboards, torches and laptop-style bags and entered the building. Three officers carrying cameras and wearing white forensic suits went into the flat at around 9.30pm taking away the body. Obviously my suspicion is that he knew too much. You notice the article for the guardian says how unspicious his death was, with random inserts of his drug and alcohol abuse. If you read this without the blue insert you’ll notice you can see past the original edit, this insert blocks the flow of thought. These kinds of subtle inserts are a process of subtle disinformation
This will of course, be the cause of death. Why even mention things randomly like “i went to rehab, no coming back!” Why name the article “found dead?”
how was his body found dead? Most reporters/famous people should be “missing” for a period then the smell of their corpses should rot, a neighbor should report it, somebody should go in and look. You don’t just barge into someone elses house, and you don’t do it to somebody who was being as well protected as julia assange was during his wikileaks indictment and even now.
Why won’t the guardian feature this article on their home page for the website? If you try to look for the death of sean hoare, its unpublicized on guardian! while there are 7 mentions of murdoch only one of sean howre, and none about his death all of the attention is being drawn towards the trial
it’s not even on its mainpage, but looking at reddit it is the most popular search,
Why would murdoch overpublicize his own trial? Who would make himself look bad? This is his genius. On the day of Sean Hoare’s death, murdoch is the process of trying to buy SKY TV. Sky Tv is this interesting little device that will rule the british airways in a few years, the dawn was apt at mentioning this buy out.
“Even more importantly, perhaps the scandal will torpedo a controversial proposal for News International to buy up the outstanding shares in BSkyB, the holding company that owns Sky TV. This operation has become hugely profitable, sending its TV packages — as well as phone and broadband services — into millions of British homes. Although Murdoch owned some 39 per cent of the company, he wants total control, and his application has been pending with the government for months.
Many have opposed the proposal on the grounds that it would give one individual far too much clout. However, it was widely feared that the Conservative culture minister tasked with reviewing the application would not wish to antagonise Murdoch by turning him down. But with the ongoing scandal, one MP said News International would not be granted a licence to run a minicab service, leave alone buy up BSkyB. “
The guardian hasn’t mentioned the buy out, but this could be because the guardian is also part of murdoch’s own scheme, by fighting himself versus an enemy he’s now made “the guardian” his alter. when people want to get “the scoop” on murdoch they go to the guardian, we say, who hates him more? where else is the latest footage on the trial? you know the funny video where murdoch gets bopped in the face with a pie. the guradian publicizes that “Tuesday 19 July 2011 was the most humble day of his life.”
Citizen canes xmen ability is not in preventing things from being said about you, its learning how to get the wrong shit said about you at the right time. Even something that seems to be an attack on someones character might actually be a way to show someones humanity, quaintness. In a year time from today do you think it’ll be easier to oppose murdoch or more difficult? somehow more difficult, yet this “appears” to be a geniune attack against murdoch its actually going to benefit him. now i’m not going to be that batshit crazy and say i know the reasons why, but its easy to see the effects of these actions!
