Beautiful Things From Unexpected Places [10 Feb 2011|05:41am]

mrvetinari
[ mood | cheerful ]

When Soldiers and Hippies work together, it is a beautiful thing.


The Egyptian military has, so far, shown enormous restraint in response to what is likely serious pressure from pro-Mubarak forces. When our Western eyes saw protests flash across their Al-Jazeera web-feeds, many of us had the same thought: "I hope this doesn't turn into Tienanmen Square". And, to our surprise, it hasn't. Sure, there has been brawls and scrapping, but the military has not gunned civilians down.

Part of this is the professionalism of the Egyptian Military officers that were trained in the United States. Thousands of Egyptian Officers have been trained in the U.S. In addition to training on tactics, equipment, theory, and technical skills, they have been trained on the role of the military in a democratic and open society.

We should thank the hippies for some of this. For decades the "School of the Americas" and other programs where foreign military personnel were trained were notorious for cranking out goons for third-world dictators. Survivors brought their stories to American human rights organizations and the reputation led them to push for the shut down of the School of the Americas and other facilities.

After decades of pressure, the SOA changes it's name to the "Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation", and more importantly they added mandatory classes in Human Rights and the proper role of the military in democratic societies. An example from the 2004 Course List:

CMS-2 Democratic Sustainment Course Course Length: 6 weeks
To introduce and teach theory and practice of military and civilian leadership in a constitutional nation-state, drawing on the shared traditions of the countries in the Western Hemisphere. This course explores the role of the military within a democratic and constitutionally derived, civilian-controlled government. The American Council on Education (ACE) has recommended three university credit hours for this course based on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Troy State University.


These courses have been mandatory for officers receiving training the the U.S. for years now at the WHISC and elsewhere, thousands of mid-grade officers in nations like Egypt have been through them, and whether this was a genuine act of decency or just something to make the hippies happy, it looks like it might be changing the world for the better.

Imagine that: A program that was the poster-boy for dictators, human-rights abuses and military coups might become a institution of progress throughout parts of the world that need progress very badly. Maybe hippies and soldiers should work together more often.

Reasons to reclaim the media - before we lose ourselves in a fabricated dream [28 Jan 2011|11:51pm]

fading_girrl
Television messes with your head. This is particularly the case now we're wandering parched through the death valley non-ratings period, when watching TV is akin to having dust blown in your eyes by the networks.

If you're a couch potato like me, it's a good bet you're resorting to DVD sets of hit shows you got for Christmas, which also means you can watch five hours of True Blood, The Wire or Entourageback to back and that's when things can get weird.

Watch enough Dexter (which, if you don't know, is about a serial killer) you start to daydream about dismembering people who tick you off in real life.


Advertisement: Story continues below
"I just have to plan it carefully like Dexter does, cover the room in plastic, then use my uncle's boat to drop the body pieces off the continental shelf," you think, before walking into human resources for your performance review.

Do a weekend retrospective of HBO's excellent western seriesDeadwood and you might find yourself swearing artfully like the characters do incessantly on that show – which can actually be pretty handy when dealing with HR.

Too much Mad Men makes you think chain-smoking and cheating on your wife are kind of glamorous and if Gyton Grantley can get away with dealing methamphetamine on Underbelly, surely I could earn myself a deposit for an investment property doing the same?

By episode 20 of Packed to the Rafters, you might think every family's issues can be resolved in 44 minutes, and if you can sit through the execrable Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, you might actually believe misogyny is a handy way to shag endless hot women.

Intellectually, we know we're watching a TV show but, as shown by the mania generated by programs such as Sex and the Cityor Gossip Girl it's all too easy to be drawn into these wonder worlds, to subconsciously believe the characters and their adventures really exist.

In 1978, Jerry Mander wrote an interesting book titled Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television, one of which was that TV actually affects our ability to differentiate between what is real and what's not.

He asks readers to imagine scenarios like the American old west or an Eskimo village, which most people have never experienced in real life.

"Obviously the images were either from your own imagination or else they were from media. Can you identify which was which?" Mander writes.

It gets really interesting if you try to picture something as prosaic as a wedding or a mother cooking dinner. Despite all of us having experienced these events in reality, there's a good chance when you summon these scenarios you'll see images you've watched on TV or in a movie, often because they're more visually pleasing.

Mander's argument was that technology has moved faster than our brains, to the point many people's entire library of internal images now come exclusively from media.

Social commentator Chuck Klosterman takes up the point in his book Eating the Dinosaur, writing that since 1903, with the advent of moving pictures, our "reality" has changed forever.

"Humans have existed for 130,000 years," he writes. "The Great Train Robbery was made in 1903. For roughly 129,900 years, any moving image a human saw was actually real. It was there, right in front of you.

If a man in 1850 saw a train chugging toward his face, it was actually a train. For 129,900 years, we were conditioned to understand that seeing something in motion had a specific meaning."

Klosterman argues that intellectually, we understand the difference between someone being shot dead or raped, or winning the lottery on a TV screen and it happening in real life – but "is there any possible way that 129,900 years of psychological evolution can be altered within the span of a single century?

Is it also possible that the wonder worlds we've created for our entertainment in fact control us so profoundly, inform our motivations and desires so fundamentally, that we've ceded our intellectual freedom to moving pictures and their creators?

Me? I know I sometimes catch myself pondering what the characters from Lost or Band of Brothers or Love My Way are doing with themselves now, so I can't help puzzling what else I've absorbed from these strangers as I became part of their lives.

It's certainly enough to make me pick up a book this summer.

The “Resurrection Plan“. A new hope for land and people. [18 Sep 2010|05:27am]

rotte_volf

villageAs we wrote recently, because of some circumstances we have been forced to elaborate alternative plan for Sunland location and development. And now our new Resurrection Plan originated as a result of this elaboration. What is it? What we can to offer our supporters and sympathizers around the world?

It's not a secret - in all cities in all countries there are large communities of anarchists, radical artists, ecologists, representatives of subcultures, and all those people who don't fit in with the normative rules of modern society. Searching the way out from stifling atmosphere of this tainted world they try to find some free spaces at least small and poor. So, if they achieve this they often resort to the practice of squatting. But their new Home is often threatened in the cases if some greedy rustlers have an eye on that place. Given this we modified the idea of squatting (though this modification occasioned by the actual situation in Russia).

As a result of so called "democratic reforms" the terrible mass depopulation befell Russia. More of all it concerns Russian countryside. And now many villages in Russia stand absolutely deserted. For eg. 2.500 from 8.000 villages in Pskov region (N.-W. Russia) are uninhabited. For the outside observer, it seems like some kind of genocide and more over - destroying traditional forms of living.

Also, our Resurrection Plan means that: 1) we must to find suitable empty villages, 2) go there to the reconnoiter, 3) select the most convenient place, 4) organize the first group settlers and volunteers, 5) legalize our eco-village with local authorities.

Certainly, first of all we figure on the Russian anarchists, libertarians, radical ecologists, artists and all those Russian young people who eager to the spiritual renovation. But our foreign friends have to watch the cause. This horrible monster - THE STATE (damn it forever and ever, amen!) - is the same everywhere. Far and wide where the state stretches its paws the life becoming intolerable (note this case). Because Freedom is indivisible, our foreign friends have to ready to come to the aid of Sunland in case of troubles.

Sunland Commune.

Moscow / Khimki: The Battle with the Adminstration Heats Up [01 Aug 2010|07:36pm]

chapeye
In recent days, the battle to stop the destruction of the forest in the Moscow suburb of Khimki has heated up. Activists have been protesting the building of an $8 million high speed toll highway between Moscow and Petersburg. This highway would destroy beautiful forestland around Moscow. Environmentalists say the highway can bypass the old oak forest.

The flashpoint has been in the city which is called Khimki, right outside Moscow. There is a history of violence sponsored by the local authorities in this town. In the most famous case of political terrorism, in November 2008, Mikhail Beketov, outspoken editor-in-chief of the regional «Khimkinskaya Pravda» (Khimki Truth) newspaper, was savagely beaten in front of his home. The attack was clearly related to his criticism of local authorities and the highway being built. As a result of his injuries one of his legs was amputated, and head traumas he suffered during the attack have left him unable to speak. Current reports on his condition indicate that his second leg may have to be amputated.

Khimki authorities thus have a reputation for dealing brutally with anybody who dares oppose them.

Direct actions started on July 14, when the logging was to begin. Eco-activists set up an action camp in Khimki to take direct action against the deforestation. They have used blockades on the train lines leading to the logging site.

On July 23, at about 5AM, the protestors and two journalists were attacked and beaten by a gang of several dozen thugs with white T-shirts masking their faces. From all indications, this was an organized group of neofascists, wearing such symbols on their shirts. The police arrived and started arresting the activists, not the attackers, which indicated that this was an attack carried out in coordination with the police. Security guards hired by the firm carrying out the destruction also took part.

15 people were arrested at that time. Later in the day, the police arrived again, taking away dozens of people.

When some activists tried to protest in front of the White House in Moscow against this highway being built and the forest being illegally destroyed, they were also immediately arrested.

On July 28, a large group, (most say 400-500 people), marched on Khimki. A part of them (70-100 people), attacked the local administration building. This is shown on the video below.

Seattle activists sued for protesting development firm [02 Feb 2010|10:18pm]

wallynotorious
From the January issue of Olympia independent newspaper Works In Progress:


Seattle activists sued for protesting development firm
by Wally Cuddeford

A campaign by Seattle activists to defend anti-racist values and enforce ethical standards in local business has garnered a stern response from one targeted offender: Seattle development firm Lorig Associates. For months now, Seattle Solidarity Network (“SeaSol”), alongside former Lorig employee and woman-of-color Patricia Milton, have been engaged in an aggressive grassroots campaign against Lorig’s racist employment practices. And recently, after a couple apparent SeaSol victories, Lorig responded by filing a lawsuit against SeaSol and Patricia, seeking not only unspecified damages, but also a gag order prohibiting SeaSol and Patricia from saying or doing anything which could “interfere with Lorig’s relationships with investors, customers or other employees.”

Game Set and Match [21 Jan 2010|11:03am]

mrvetinari
[ mood | angry ]

Well, it was a good game while it lasted.

The Supreme Court has just ruled that there can be no limits on corporate support of candidates. This means the "Sarah Palin Awesome Hour Brought to You by Mountain Dew" is now an inevitability. Corporations (and other entities with MUCH MUCH LESS MONEY) can now support any and all candidates by fielding their own ads and using their multi-million dollar budgets. The don't even have to let you know the source (they can always create some legal shell "Americans for Freedom" or some shit) and there are NO limits.

Advertising is powerful. Americans buy something as important as car insurance from a goddamned cartoon or a gecko or a caveman. We fatten and kill ourselves with high fructose corn syrup and we drink pisswater beer. All of these stupid, stupid, stupid choices wouldn't be made as often without BILLIONS of advertising dollars spent to mind-rape us into throwing away our money on things that aren't of any value and are killing us. THAT is how powerful advertising is, it is a constant bombardment of the bunker of your mind with messages telling you to kill yourself slowly for the benefit of some rich asshole you would hate if you met.... AND IT WORKS.

This is it. Any semblance of hiding influence buying for campaign ads is no longer needed as legal cover. Corporations are now as free to buy our oligarchs as they are in the most corrupt third world nations that exist. It is now legal for the Geico gecko to give a CGI animated short endorsing his favorite campaign. Or the Budweiser Frogs, or the Marlboro Man, or whatever. There is no limit to loosing the Whore of Babylon that is corporate advertising on each and every one of us with messages on TV, on the Internet, the Radio, Billboards, Sponsored Art, Viral Campaigns, Text Messages, Corporate Jingles, Labels on Products, The Sides of Buses, and Messages Written in the Sky... and whatever else their mind-rape scientists can come up with.

If Candidate X makes the statement: "If elected I will immediately stop the pointless pissing away of Soldiers' lives in Iraq" and BodyBagCorp decides that will cost them money it is now perfectly legal for them to hire beautiful/charismatic "Viral Marketers" to meet with people (without disclosing their sponsorship) in public places and online and convince people that the pointless pissing away of our soldiers lives for no fucking reason in Iraq needs to go on forever and ever and ever. For "freedom" or some shit like that.

Just like Fergie was paid 3.7 Million to do product placement in her songs (without any kind of disclosure to listeners that she is doing so) BodyBagCorp can now pay her to insert a line in her next song about how awesome it is that soldiers are still dying for no fucking reason in the hellhole and how proud she is that their remains will be respected with BodyBagCorp Bodybags... let's get retarded in here. Or whatever. I tend to seize on the vampires sucking money from the deaths of our soldiers for no fucking reason as an example because it is close to my heart, but I am sure you have your issue as well.

Our entire cultural mindrape machine is now for sale to get us to vote for the dumbest shit imaginable. Every "artist", every song, every show, every frame of every day from the device that delivers our daily "programming" is for sale on the open market to subvert our interests as voters and citizens. Fuck this fucking ruling, fuck Judges who pretend they can't understand the constitution at a 5th grade level, and fuck the mindrape machine that sells me pisswater beer with jiggling titties.

Why I read foreign newspapers; EVIDENCE [28 Nov 2009|02:03pm]

lucy_chronicles
X-posted from my own journal simply for the purpose of jump-starting conversations and postings again in this community.
--------------------------------
Today and yesterday's Financial Times evidence part of why I am a subscriber. One must further monitor world news sources to acquire an accurate picture of what is really happening in the world and certainly, here at home in the United States of America. It is laughably, hypocritically sad that our US President should lecture China on "Freedom of the Press." Our major news sources are cardinal violators of this 'free press' principal by grave sins of omission. It struck me most this morning catching up from but one printed source. Here are but a few of the headlines w/ a few source article links - the rest can be easily found w/ basic keyword searches on the FT.com site.

* American Eagle gold bullion coin sales suspended
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/19507efc-daf6-11de-933d-00144feabdc0.html?nclick_check=1

* Asian heads of Goldman Sachs selling record amounts of company stock

* India signals 'serious concern' over Chinese military ties with Pakistan

* Abu Dhabi will not see its smaller brother fail (referencing the Dubai deleveraging/sales of the last few days)

(previous articles from the week not appearing anywhere in the US press
* World banks in danger of failure (BofA, Citibank in the top 10)

* The legacy of long-term unemployment effects in the USA

And of course the Brits have their own state propaganda release practically scripted by George Orwell -
"UK turns corner" = The UK Treasury believes the economy has turned the corner, the recession has ended and the UK will grow in 2010.

Draw your own inferences and conclusions from the above. If one isn't already visiting an outside paper, add the FT.com and the South China Morning News (out of Hong Kong) to your daily scan list.

Bottled water: now with 50% less arsenic [27 Nov 2009|11:29pm]

1bottleproject

One Bottle Project is a grass roots movement against the 'corporatization' of water in Montreal as well as outside of the city. According to Statistics Canada, 28% of Quebec residents use bottled water as their primary source of drinking water (this is close to the national average of 30%). This number is extremely disturbing since Canada is one of the most water-rich countries in the world (it contains 9% of the world's renewable water supply), and there is no reason for any Canadian citizen to be drinking bottled water during normal daily practice. It is simply a waste to be drinking bottled water.

The consumption of bottled water encourages the privatization of water. Bottled water is a rapidly growing market and the major beverage companies are all heavily vested in it. It only makes sense. Why sell soda or juice products when you can simply bottle the filtered water from the factory! Pepsi (Aquafina) and Coca-Cola (Dasani) have admitted to doing just this. Their water is simply repackaged public drinking water, filtered and sold back to you. At prices sometimes approaching 2.50$ a litre or more, bottled water can be more expensive than gasoline!

Bottled water also causes unneeded strain on the planet's resources. The production of the bottles requires oil. The transportation causes a further need for oil. The production of the plastic requires more water than the bottle itself contains (it takes 4 litres of water to produce a 1 litre bottle)... all this to repackage a resource we have in enormous quantities! It just doesn't make sense to drink bottled water in Canada.

Tell your friends. Tell your family.

You can save money. You can save the planet. You can help protect one of our most important natural resources from being privatized.

Today I’d like to invite you along for a ‘red pill’ reflection on values and legitimacy. The American president marketed his candidacy as one of hope and change, concepts that many Americans – and citizens of the world – embraced with wild abandon. Nonetheless, it’s no secret that I’ve been thoroughly skeptical of his honesty, and I’d like to share an example of why you should be skeptical too. Although there are many different examples I could choose from (e.g., illegal detentions, fiscal policy, wars of aggression, health care reform etc), today I’m going to highlight one that’s so covertly insidious that few people even recognize it as a problem: the Olympics.

Is it time to take back America? FROM United States National Militia Soldiers For Freedom

DUE TO THE THREAT TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF THE AMERICAN CITIZEN, I WAS CONTACTED BY ACTIVISTS TO RECITE 'THE MESSAGE'. It is my honor, duty and personal choice to read this message online and have committed no crime in doing so, nor does anyone who speaks out on their own behalf. I read that you are considered a 'TERRORIST' if you speak up on animal or human rights...Too ludicrous to even contemplate. Here is the Letter in it's entirety "When I travel throughout the country, simply as a public speaker, people from every political stand point ask me why i believe that a revolution is necessary, instead of working within the framework of the established political order and with the collaboration of the parties already in existence, for the purpose of improving those conditions which we considered unsound and injurious. Why must we have a new party, and especially why a new revolution?

The answers I give them are:

The elements of confusion and dissolution which are making

themselves felt in American life, in the concept of life itself and

the will to national self-preservation, cannot be eradicated by a

mere change of government. More than enough of those changes

have already taken place without bringing about any essential

betterment of the distress that exists in our nation. All these

Cabinet reconstructions brought some positive advantage only to

the actors who took part in the play; but the results were almost

always quite negative as far as the interests of the people were

concerned. As time has gone on the thoughts and practical life of

our people have been led astray into ways that are unnatural to

them and injurious. One of the causes which brought about this

condition of affairs must be attributed to the fact that the structure

of our elected leadership and their methods of government are

damning to our own national character, our historical development

and our national needs.


It is out of the question to think that such a revolutionary

reconstruction could be carried out by those who are the

custodians and the more or less responsible representatives our current elected leadership,

or by the political organizations founded under the old

form of government. Nor would it be possible to bring this

about by collaborating with these institutions, but only by

establishing a new movement which will fight against them for the

purpose of carrying through a radical reformation in political,

cultural and economic life. And this fight will have to be

undertaken even at the sacrifice of life and blood, if that should be

necessary.

In this connection it is worthy of remark that when the average

political party wins a victory no essential change

takes place in the historical course which the people are following

or in the outer aspect of public life; whereas a genuine revolution

that arises from a profound ideological insight will always lead to

a transformation which is strikingly impressive and is manifest to

the outside world. In closing the need for our generations revolution

is more then evident in America today. This war will change the course of

not only our history but the history of the world as a whole. When that fateful

day comes that our soldiers are called to arms may our men, women,

and children maintain the courage and the will to preserver through what ever

obstacles are thrown in our path. for our fight is that of righteous cause and may

Gods divine guidance lead us to victory. Thank you for your time" AUTHOR KNOWN AS 'J'

There is enough of skepticism. It’s time to start working! [29 Jul 2009|02:00pm]

rotte_volf
SunlandSunland project has been implementing for almost two months. There is not 100 days (the time that taken in politics for consideration of preliminary results) but something can be said right now. Our rule is never to hide the truth. We don’t inspire anyone with illusions. We don’t want to become victims of illusions. So, we can say that Sunland became interesting for many people and it has not been ignored. But those people who are really willing to actively participate in the project - such people are few and far between. Among the public which is debating Sunland online dominates skeptical, sometimes openly hostile, but more often mocking attitude. Why is it so? May be we’re doing something wrong? Maybe, but first of all, nobody hinders constructive criticism, conversely, we always greet it. Second, if you want to prevent yourself from any mistakes – just do nothing. Or, maybe, the very idea is bad? But, first, there are hundreds of communes around the world now which successfully operate base on the ideological and philosophical, moral, ethical or even religious grounds (from the anarchist communes to the mennonite communities). And secondly ... well, it is wiser to devote a special article concerning the reasons for such skepticism and consider this matter in broader context of Sunland’s philosophical and ethical foundations.

At the first place at Sunland are ideas, principles and people. If it is so, then the material side of the life also will be. Sunland is a light, which is giving to people the hope and joy. “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not…” (John 1:5).

We are continuing working at the implementing of Sunrise Plan. As it already has been reported, the Sunland project activists decided that before establishing a colony on a desert island, it could be possible to make a colony on the mainland. This decision brings significant changes in the architecture of the project.

It's a pity that many people grasp Sunland too superficially. In fact, this project is very important due to its implicit philosophical, anthropological significance. There are some important questions. Whether people of the modern world are capable to set and pursue spontaneous goals? Whether their desire for full, free, true life is alive? Or their goals are fully inspired by the “hyperreality” (a French philosopher Jean Baudrillard's term), by omnipotent media brain-washing machine? Whether the existence of modern people is entirely determined by the "a priori" format?

Why Sunland project is absolutely possible and why it has to be done? [26 Jun 2009|10:28am]

Many people are constantly asking us: “How are you going to arrange proper living conditions and other facilities for the sunlanders? How are you going to organize Sunland’s economy?” Some people even express doubts in our fairness, while quite the contrary others reproach us in unrealism and keenness on empty fantasies. In this short article I shall try to prove that the Sunland project is a genuine project and more over its significance goes beyond the framework of an ordinary settlement in some obscure location.

What we want to create on Sunland? If people think that we want to create some kind of village with customary middle-class conditions like in any American town, they are wrong. We want to demonstrate an alternative living style.

PRESS-RELEASE. The world famous people will express their opinion about the project of art-colony on [12 Jun 2009|09:49am]

PRESS-RELEASE. The world famous people will express their opinion about the project of art-colony on a desert island in the Pacific Ocean.

The group of underground artists, musicians and poets from creative association "ART REVOLUTION" announced recently the fascinating project of establish the self-governing settlement of creative persons on one of the desert islands in Oceania. According to ideologists of "ART REVOLUTION" such art colony should become some kind of substitute to the well-known Copenhagen's art commune "Christiania" which, under the Danish authorities decision, threatens the complete liquidation in the near future.

The initiators of the project that was named “Sunland” inform that they intend to interrogate all most known world art representatives and the well-known public figures to find out their opinion about the idea.
