Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

our values...

Much as been made by the propagandists using our Prime Minister as a sock puppet about "values". You know, those things that make us "superior" to those with different "values"...

Just now I left a comment on this topic over at Gianna's blog and I liked it so much I thought I'd dump an abridged version here as well:

Our values? Which ones?

The values that say we can march into any part of the world, set up our megacorps, strip their resources, bugger their habitat, their culture, their values, their women and their kids, and piss off again when we're done?

The values that flog the corrupt myth that Western style "democracy" is some sort of magic bullet that must be fired into them at point blank range and against their will?

The values that say our unsustainable, resource-stripping, globe-buggering lifestyle must prevail, and their simpler, more subsistent, more sustainable lifestyle must be corrupted by "progress"?

(And please don't make the mistake of thinking that I'm talking about any religion here.)

Mutters to self: "People, hypnotised by mere moments in history..."

Sigh...

It's not easy being an eclectic (or should that be "electric"?) philosopher...

So much sophistry, so few bullets...

The only values we should put any stock in is honesty and integrity and we're not going to get much of that from 'them in charge'.

"honesty and integrity"? JT, have been perusing my "New Revised Dictionary of Political Manipulation" and those words have been discarded as 'currently irrelevant'.

Globalisation is pure evil. But by the time Average Joe (or Joeline) figures this out, it'll be all over, Red Rover.

They (the Bushs, Blairs Howards of this world) know this and they know it'll lead to more an more "terrorism". Hence the "war on terror". It's all a huge smoke screen to cloud the issue of what globalisation is doing to people and how people mustn't oppose it violently (which is what I think most "terrorism" is.) In this sense I have to agree with B, B, and H. Opposition or protest should be nonviolent. The focus should be on getting massive nonviolent protests happening and not suicide bombings or other violence.

And I still reckon that organistations like the CIA are inserting agents provocateur into muslim extremist groups to keep the aggro perking along so that there continues to be a perceived "enemy" we can be at war with. Peace is bad for the military industrial complex. Very bad. Have a look at the huge budget boosts the cryptorcacy and military have gained from 9/11.
