Second Today (no, First Tomorrow)

I saw some sort of Christmas gift bag today. Some Disney thing, fairy princesses on. Not like Edric the Wild's wife, either. Behind one was a tree, perhaps a spruce in cartoon form, with snow on top. It did look more than vaguely phallic.

Tamre L Martin-Stock wrote a useful guide to defence against aliens. Don't know if it's still on the web now.

Sean Langan, of Langan behind the Lines and Travels with a Gringo fame went off to fight with the Taleban for Channel Four. Wasn't charged with Treason. Making a documentary.


I see remarksman has a new post. Comments, which I can't seem to post there:

Manson's art, serpent around America/Amaracu: Midgard serpent.
Britannia, Cutty Sark. Pritein, some primitive goddess after which we are named. Did Icke say that?
Lam. Treader of the Path. The early Christians were "followers of the Way".

Horseman of the Acropolis

I've just seen a UFO, through the forecourt at Sandicliffe. I only saw it for a few seconds. It wasn't particularly high, it was emitting light and leaving a faint smoke trail, not a vapour trail. Vapours. Good song, "Turning Japanese", by the Vapours. There was an elderly couple across the road who were looking at it. They would've had a better view. Further along the road I passed a woman who works at the library who I overheard talking about it, specifically the lack of a trail (she said she couldn't see one, perhaps implying there had been one but wasn't any longer).

Not the first time, either. I saw a typical daylight sphere once. Cosmic geometry, Sharula said.

Kirkgate, that's Church Street in Old Norse. Lots of "gates" around here. JamesT. It was Kirkgate, or from Kirkgate, that I saw a pentagram in scaffolding. Norsemen of the Apocalypse. I wonder if all prophecy is based on weak puns. In English. If this is the End Times it would make sense for the puns to be in a language spoken today.

Besides, puns are particularly an English phenomenon. In the war Nazis dressed as puns parachuted into Britain, or so was the common fear.

Great Old Ones comeback tour

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which. -- Orwell, Animal Farm

ON. Osiris is ON. As in Jahbulon. I'm surprised little dynamo missed that one.

An interesting fact. Just before the invasion of Iraq there was a gang or ter... geurillas in training in Hungary, on a US base. Never went into action, of course. No, those terrorists were trained elsewhere.

A military secret. Enough for one day.

Be the Lie

That's how you covince people you're telling the truth, you believe it yourself. Almost makes it true.

For Aquino, "mindwar" is a permanent state of strategic psychological warfare against the populations of friend and foe nations alike. "In its strategic context, mindwar must reach out to friends, enemies and neutrals alike across the globe ... through the media possessed by the United States which have the capabilities to reach virtually all people on the face of the Earth. These media are, of course, the electronic media-television and radio. State of the art developments in satellite communication, video recording techniques, and laser and optical transmission of broadcasts make possible a penetration of the minds of the world such as would have been inconceivable just a few years ago."

Above all else, Aquino argues, mindwar must target the population of the United States, "by denying enemy propaganda access to our people, and by explaining and emphasizing to our people the rationale for our national interest. ... Rather it states a whole truth that, if it does not now exist, will be forced into existence by the will of the United States."

Morphed into this"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

Well, there you go, making a new reality. I've been wondering about reality. As the quantum physicists know, all in subjective.

FW Demara knew. Believe it and so will they. Look in the book "Hair of the Alien". Perhaps physical evidence isn't that physical, perhaps spiritual not that unphysical. Gilchrist and Zane should still be blamed.

One way to go about this is with insults, but it's all about confidence. If people see you're insulting people who are trying to be rational they'll assume you know you're right.

Keep in mind that recent papers by U.S. Information Agency-type psy-ops advisors to the USG like J. Michael Waller have recommended using "the secret weapon of *Ridicule*" against both Iraq insurgents and 9/11 truthers.
Here's Waller's paper based on his book of the same title, 'Fighting the War of Ideas Like a Real War,' wherein he points out that the Pentagon is not restrained from using black propaganda (lies) on the American people by the 1948 Smith-Mundt Act, just the State Department is. So he advises the Pentagon's psy-ops special forces to start dropping mind bombs immediately, especially *RIDICULE.*

pdf file Waller paper-

Someone on rigint posted that, I don't know who.

Adam Smith's a good example. You know, the one the right wingers named their Adam Smith Institute after, the famous "invisible hand of the market" man. The founder of Hayekian Austrian economics. Or not, it truth, but that's the constructed reality.

All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind. -- Smith

The subjects of every state ought to contribute toward the support of the government, as nearly as possible, in proportion to their respective abilities; that is, in proportion to the revenue which they respectively enjoy under the protection of the state ....[As Henry Home (Lord Kames) has written, a goal of taxation should be to] 'remedy inequality of riches as much as possible, by relieving the poor and burdening the rich.' -- Smith

But let's just forget what he said. It's his brand that's important, not his thoughts.

Picutre this. Tony Blair in the Cabinet room. Jack Straw too. The Foreign Secretary as was, not the fourteenth century radical. Sitting across the table a group of middle east experts. Post-modern jackets, intellectual hair-cuts, mock-cynical shiny shoes. They've giving him a lecture on how difficult rebuilding Iraq might be and general middle eastern issues (no doubt this is all coming in handy now for the UN's peace envoy). He has a question for them. Is Saddam "uniquely evil"? They were taken aback by this, not being twelfth century clergymen.

He could have been putting on an act, I suppose. He could have really believed it. I think he's a liar, but I suppose he could be a pyschopath. There's been many mentionings of Blair, as a Monarch slave, a victim of demon possession and of course he was once an MI5 asset.

But I've been having thoughts.

Look at this from Ben Fairhall's blog:

Embodied as the dinosaurs and the Watchers, returning as the Quinotaur who spawned a race of kings, it was they whose path Danny Casalaro crossed, at the Cabazon Indian Reservation, where he first sensed the Octopus... From the depths they spoke through Lovecraft, in whose feverish visions of Cthulu they were known as Dagon; whose call Seung Hui-Cho heard when he swung his ISMAIL AX.' Ellis Taylor noted that it was the knowledge that 'that these former Lords of the Earth...' might attempt to 'wrench back' ownership of the planet (and its occupants) that most concerned our far-seeing ancestors; some of whom 'thought it more prudent to appease this glowering pretender.

Yes, perhaps that's it. The Great Old One's comeback tour. Like in the Babylon 5 episode "ThirdSpace", which Project Superman man Andy Pero claims to be based on his time travelling adventures. From Ben Fairhall again, to take us back to the Young Pretender:

It should surprise no-one, then, that a passionate advocate of just such a database was Tony Blair, Satanist and mass murderer, who has regularly claimed frequent contact with 'God.' As Blair is a high-ranking Freemason (of the '1591 Studholme Lodge') and alleged Knight of Malta, such claims are very plausible.

Knights of Malta control Blackwater, if that's of interest. Is that name of occult significance? There's a river Blackwater in Ireland. Or Essex. Isn't there a regiment named after them?

Yes, the comeback tour, stretching out tentacles to effect those things which are important. Where did you think modernist architecture came from? It's the moulding of psychogeography. As in ThirdSpace, as with Cthulhu, as with the Martian artefact in that old black and white Quatermass film which exerts a malign psychic influence, specifically on those with the genes descended from the Martians. Geneology. Branton was a Mormon. He mentions a base, subterranean as is his wont, in a place called Little Cottonwood Canyon. Didn't realise it was a geneology centre. My granddad was always obsessed with geneology. He's the one who introduced me to Temple Bruer. I'm a bastard and my mother was in the loony bin for years after I was born. The family history.

Boothby Graffoe's a place name.

They think they're so mysterious, these Old Ones. I don't agree. they are the demons of old, but they weren't Annunaki from Nibiru presenting themselves as demons, nor are they beyond comprehension. The Mysticism just gets people in right receptive frame of mind. I used ot know them. Now I know them better. You have to make your choice, as Keel says. Chains of darkness.

Perhaps it was the Babalon, or Amalantrah, working that let Lam through. As the aliens always say, they were here first and they want what's theirs. Perhaps nukes open stargates. That's another theory I've heard. 1945, nukes. Through come the UFOs from their other dimensional prison. The demons released from the pit.

From the re-emergence of Venus to the new global order... This is the sound of the English intifada, of an ancestral people crying from the dust. -- Ben Fairhall. Him and remarksman quite a bit in common.

Two posts in one day. I've got some others in the pipeline.

MoD Control Operations Centre...

...were watching Norman Baker MP. It's all about control. Co-ordination.

"The espionage game provides a powerful motive, superbly trained teams and the perfect cover for large-scale drug smuggling. It’s hardly a secret that, in the past, the CIA has partaken of the feast and, collectively, it couldn’t give a damn if the stuff gets dumped on the despised nations of ‘Old Europe’. "

It's not entirely accurate to say they don't care. When the miners were viciously put down, was it to create more market for their product? Or was the product to stop any counter-organisation?

"I read Amnesty International’s 2006 report on the CIA’s ‘rendition’ flights – Below the radar: Secret flights to torture and disappearance – and my suspicion deepened. Officially available flight details for known aircraft of the CIA’s clandestine fleet combined with observations by Amnesty’s global network of plane spotters reveal that these aircraft fly too often, and touch down far more often, than can be explained by the rendition of the hapless suspects they were carrying at the time. They often stopped at US air bases where the local authorities have no control over what gets loaded or unloaded."

Always the problem. Not enough people. Where do all those paedo victims come from? Can't all be like little Johnny Gosch, disappeared off the street. Someone might notice.

John Keel says:

"Children vanish more frequently than any other group. We're not talking about ordinary runaways. In August, 1869, thirteen children vanished in Cork, Ireland. No sign of kidnapping or foul play. The same month there was a wave of disappearing children in Brussels, Belgium. Another group of youngsters melted away in Belfast in August, 1895. And again in August, 1920, eight girls (all under twelve years of age) disappeared forever in Belfast...
"Actually, children have been disappearing in large numbers for centuries all over the world, and most of these cases have remained unsolved. In the Middle Ages it was popularly believed that fairies and leprechauns frequently stole children away. The Indians of North and South America also have many myths and stories about children being kidnapped by little people. The notion that parahumans kidnap children is deeply entrenched in every culture...
"The celebrated Pied Piper of Hameln, Germany, is more than just a charming children's story. A stranger actually did appear in Hameln in the Middle Ages, and he lured away 150 children never to be seen again. The event is still commemorated with an annual festival in Hameln (one of the old accounts says that the children were taken to a subterranean cavern - Branton).

Yeah, I got that from Branton.

It's not only those news-grabbing kidnaps off the streets of Montreal and Rome that make the CIA keep a gang of pilots handy, and it's not only Johnny Gosch they need the kidnappers for.

Don't let the bastards grind you down.

Rise like lions after slumber
In unvanquishable NUMBER!
Shake your chains to earth, like dew
Which in sleep had fall'n on you:
-- Shelley

This might seem petty, but I think Louis Hamilton was stitched up. I saw that rat Eccleston put his curse on him before the race. That sport is Eccleston's personal fiefdom. I wasn't surprised when Hamilton had just enough engine problems to scupper him.

Like I say, might sound petty but if Jeff Wells can write about Britney being set up by MTV, then why not? He was making a wider point, of course, but so am I.

It's the EU consitution I want to expand my angry speakings towards. The EU constitution is dead, long live the Reform Treaty. Democracy is nothing if it's just a vote. Here it isn't even that. People can't be allowed to have a say on this document because they'd come to the wrong conclusion, from the point of view of the overlords. It was once the done thing for judges to lock juries up for reaching the "wrong" verdict. Many a century of struggle against oppression was needed to stop that sort of abuse and make juries what they are today: the main target of the justice-hating politicos. Continentals don't understand the rule of law, only the arbitrary use of power whether for good or evil. Holland, for example, doesn't have juries but panels of judges to decide guilt. In other European countries judges direct the police or prosecutors. No wonder they have higher conviction rates: court isn't a search for truth, but a drive for convictions.

Just the other day the BBC broadcast a story about an illegal shantytown in Madrid being bulldozed. Full of immigrants from "New Europe", it was. I remember something similar from Zimbabwe not too long ago. This would never have happened in England. The planning officers would have put a stop to the illegal building.

We can't expect to keep ourselves safe forever, though. The enemy is within. Common Purpose have no interest in the rule of law.

Keeping government accountable is an almost intractable problem. There's no government truly representative of the people they govern. Perhaps election by lot would be a good idea. That's what the Greeks called democracy. Still have to elect the one to pick the names out of the hat, though.

I see the LibDems are after another leader. Was it Oaten or Hughes who was the perv? One went around thumping people, the other one did rent boys. You might think this is irrelevant, but it's not. The LibDems were founded by the CIA. The Gang of Four fled Labour because they were afraid they wouldn't get re-selected for their seats. Fear of democracy. No wonder they attract pervs.

Sport, to go back to Hamilton, is more than itself. Abramovich, the oligarch billionaire running Chelsea, was involved in the "Russian 9/11" KGB terror scheme. The IOC has been chaired by fascists and the Olympics still have a pagan hymn sung.

Herceptin. A good example of the undermining of the workings of government for purely political reasons. Drug doesn't work. Is poisonous. Was going through normal NHS channels prior to approval or rejection of funding. Then suddenly there are women on the TV. I couldn't go long without feminism coming into this, of course. Women on the TV. Whinging about the NHS not paying for their drugs to save them from cancer. No. They don't work, you stupid woman. They cost tremendous amounts and lower your life expectancy. You can tell little Timmy he can't have his chaemo because a rich white woman wants the hyped-wonder drug that doesn't cure anything. But the drug companies and the feminists know their PR and the health minister stepped in the overrule the NHS and force funding.

We hear a lot about police brutality. Again, it's the exercise of autocratic authority or arbitrary power. The original Act founding the Metropolitan Police gave the police no more rights than a common citizen. No right to barge into peoples houses or rumage through their pockets. Police powers have increased, as the powers of the citizen to enforce the law have decreased.

Banks. They make money, you know. I don't just mean rake it in, they create it. Labour tried to stop it back in the 60s. The Tories got back in 1970, in 72 they removed the lending restrictions Labour had introduced. Inflation on the M3 index that year was around 200%. The M3 index is the amount of money ni circulation. 25% times eight, eight years of inflation at 25% of the consumer prices index. That's about how it worked out, give or take. Limit private lending, that's way one to stop inflation. Limit public borrowing, that's way two. Increae exports, that's way three. Increase interest rates, that's way four.

Every Labour government of that period came to power with an ecnomy wrecked by the Tories and left office with large surpluses both trade and budget. So much for the wrecklessness of Keynesianism.

Then Thatcher came. Bevin had preceded the Killer Bikini Vampire Girl of "conservatism". He vetoed industrial democracy in the interests of his union.

"I've fallen" -- Vic and Bob.

And we have, too.

Thatcher, now we're getting somewhere. From the RI board:

My mother, a lifelong socialist, voted for Thatcher because she was certain that
a woman would make a better job of it. She was sorely disappointed.

That's a good commentary on bigotry and prejudice.

Women in 84/5, during the miners strike, played right into the feminist/Tory hands. They got themselves out, into positions. The feminists, the Tories and the drug dealers won. Drug dealers because of the heroin that's the leading industry in the former coal-field communities. Americans won't have seen the footage of Orgreave, which was doctored by the BBC (see also Christmas Tree Files) to make it appear that the miners rather than the police started the fighting. It was really a cavalry charge. The footage looks like a historical reenactment: shield-banging Romans in serried ranks against a mass of half-naked natives throwing things.

There was a film on the other day. It was made by "Hearst Communications", presumable of Yellow Journalism fame. I'm sure Alex Jones would have gone apeshit on all fours at that. Popular Mechanics and so on. It was called Hostile Advances: the Kerry Ellison Story. I dare say the conspiracists who are paranoid about Hearst will see nothing odd about this. After all, feminist indoctrination through the media is just paranoid ravings, isn't it? Not like the 9/11 cover-up. Not the truth. The film was about the introduction of the reasonable woman standard - another attack on one of the basic principles of justice, universality.

Things could get worse, though. According to today's Private Eye the BBC have decided it's promoting Islamophobia to make dramas with Muslim villains, which has scuppered their plans for a drama about something which sounds suspiciously like Guy Fawkes in a beard. They decided they needed a new type of regicidal maniac. Muslims? Too un PC. Animal rights activists? No, been done too often. Who, then? Who would the BBC editorial policy boys approve of? Of course! Defunct superhero impersonators Fathers 4 Justice. Coming soon to a TV near you.

Lastly I feel I should post a short defence of the Taleban, who I wouldn't have defended while they were still in power but towards whom I feel more sympathy nowadays. Firstly, the Taleban came to power, according to Moazzam Begg, after forcing a warlord to give up his child sex slaves. This made them popular. As you might imagine. People don't like narcopederastas. Second, they offered to extradite ObL twice, once after the embassy bombings, once after 9/11. Both times they were bombed and withdrew the offer. Third, 9/11 was very convenient for their enemies, allowing them to bully people into line with American support and recruit all the warlords who could tell which way the wind was blowing and were desperate for the good old days of narco and pederastas. Without 9/11 it would have been different: the Lion of Panjshir, the only credible non-Taleban leader, had just been blown to bits by the Taleban and al-Qaeda. They were offered a carpet of bombs or a carpet of gold. They got what they got.

That is all.

"Our hypothesis is that worthy victims will be featured prominently and dramatically, that they will be humanized, and that their victimization will receive the detail and context in story construction that will generate reader interest and sympathetic emotions. In contrast, unworthy victims will merit only slight detail, minimal humanization, and little context that will excite and enrage."
—E. S. Herman and N. Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent:1

I'd like to start with a picture but blogger is its usual incompetently managed self, so I won't. If you want to see it go here and scoll to the bottom. The little Osama. "I'm still free how about you?"

Again, blogger problem. Nice picture. Unfortunately some people still believe as the Tories did then. More will soon. It's the return of the Sathanas. Shaver mystery reference. There's nothing new under the sun, wiser words were never said. Can't be too paranoid. Maybe America is named after Amaru, maybe Columbia or some other occultic goddess. Rather a cryptic subconscious message for people.'s no CIA front. Maybe.

Oh yes, the kingdom of God is within us and so it is already here. Make no mistake, the prophecied rebirth of Israel before the end times didn't happen in 1947 or whenever else. It happened when a man died on a tree. Not Odin. Not Yggdrasil.

'we have no solution, you shall continue to live like dogs, and whoever wishes may leave.' -- Moshe Dayan.

I do, I think, have the typical associative mindset of the conspiracy theorist. I also think there's something off about Jeff Wells deciding Venezuelan Steel isn't all that strong after all, but that's for another time.

Whether the US and Israel decide to call the cantons a "state" orsomething else -- perhaps "fried chicken" as David Bar-Illan elegantlysuggested -- the results are likely to resemble the Bantustan model -- Chomsky

Have I said how much a don't trust Chomsky?

I saw some website with a silhouetted dancer, going around. I was meant to be some kind of illusion, clockwise if you're right brained, anti clockwise if left. The implications being that in bicameral brain theory the left is responsible for the ego and the right for the subconscious and the psychic powers, the creativity and craftiness. As in so many things, I was on the left. Not the left-hand path, though. Right brain is left hand path, right brain is left handed. I imagine I seem quite stilted, but it's worth it. The Bible, after all, condemns running at the mouth.

A condemnation of America: The computer game "Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars" was renamed "Broken Sword: Circle of Blood". Shouldn't be.

Associative mindset, yes. Mary Kay Letourneau, female kiddy fiddler (remember the 19 year old girl who forcibly raped a twelve year old and threw him of a railway bridge to shut him up, as she admitted, only to be given a six month suspended sentence? This wasn't her). Her brother in law, I think that was the relation, is head of Blackwater, the mercenary outfit who kicked off Fallujah and have been conducting Iraqi massacres. May well have stolen two trillion from the pentagon. Yes, that's the mindset.

Watson the DNA man says blacks are stupid. He's into eugenics. So was Margeret Sanger, feminist abortionist. So were the Nazis. The blacks, in post-war nomenclature, as opposed to the reds. Pre-war too. There's a book called Stefano Delle Chiaie: Portrait of a Black Terrorist. Ran terrorism in Italy, Franco's Spain (the last bastion of civilisation, as he called it) then South America, like so many other Nazis chased from Europe. Cocaine coup with Klaus Altmann/Barbie who was running a Thulist lodge in La Paz. Backed by the CIA. Who set up Pinochet. Who started Operation Condor, which blew up Orlando Letellier. That was covered up by Stanley Pottinger. He was stuffing Steinem.

Oh what a tangled web we weave. Oh no, that's when we first practice to deceive. Later on you learn to keep your lies straight.

The BBC is laying people off. Claims because of funding cuts. Funding not being cut, just not raised as much as they wanted. They used to record over their old programmes. That's why only a poor copy survives of "The Year of the Sex Olympics". I'm rambling. We had to wait for Private Eye to tell us the truth about those Danish cartoons of dog Mohammad. Faked by Muslims extremists to cause outrage.

Was Northern Rock set up on purpose? They're a small bank, just the ones to wreck if one of them has to go down.

Book of Jude, for a bit of Bible talk: Verse 6, demons not fallen angels, as you'd know if you'd listened to; verse 14, the book of Enoch is legit; verse 4, well the lasciviousness of thee Sophia worshipping goddess within lefthandpath crowd needs no expaciating.


Edit: Another thing: what happened to the husband of Francis Wheen's woman? Can't even trust Private Eye. Look what they did to Harold Wilson.

Something strange going on.

I think that's Enya. Could be some whales. That's what libraries are for I suppose. A few people playing online RPGs, plenty wandering around drinking coffee and having consultations with some sort of book therapist. You can't even drink in a shop, but in a library people meandering around the books with cups of the stuff. "Music" blaring away.

I'm not best pleased. It's women who are in the wrong. I dare say it was a female idea for female customers. The book therapist is female, as are the people wittering on a laughing in a place meant to be quiet.

I'm not best pleased.

A Bilderberg quote

"It is difficult to re-educate people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supra-national body. ... The Bilderbergers are searching for the age of post-nationalism: when we won't have countries, but rather regions of the Earth surrounded by Universal values. That is to say, a global economy; one World government (selected rather than elected) and a universal religion. To assure themselves of reaching these objectives, the Bilderbergers focus on a ‘greater technical approach' and less awareness on behalf of the general public".

Did I say this would be weekly?

Doug Cassel: If the president deems that he's got to torture somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the person's child, there is no law that can stop him?
John Yoo: No treaty.
Doug Cassel: Also no law by Congress -- that is what you wrote in the August 2002 memo...
John Yoo: I think it depends on why the President thinks he needs to do that.

I said something unwise yesterday, on the interweb. I said the men's rights movement wasn't important enough to attract covert government infiltrators. Don't worry, it didn't take me long ot see the error of my ways. Fathers4Justice, of course, was scuppered by infiltrators. Agents provocateur were sent to provoke reputation-destroying acts of violence. The Met set them up to look like they were planning to kidnap Blair's son. Typical government op. One wing set something up, another wing rumble it and release it to the press. False flag.

You know, F4J was founded by a former member of CND. Doesn't go down well with the right-wingers in the movement, especially the Americans. They prefer to concentrate on the men in tights. As a topic title on the RI board recently said "Republicans *heart* gay bathroom sex". Left-wingers aren't any happier and tend to ignore him, those outside the movement that is. Like that left-winger in Icke's entourage when he went to Canada, as chronicled by Jon Ronson. The other members of "Anti-Racist Action" and so on thought he'd gone over to the dark side. He just thinks shape-shifting lizard men run the world. He's no racist.

"This country was founded on the principle that the primary role of government is to protect property from the majority, and so it remains." -- Noam Chomsky

Saturday, 6 October 2007

Time gentlemen, please.

I gave a list of things going on yesterday, but I'm writing about something else entirely. I think this will become a weekly saturday blog now.

I've been reading again. Some book by an economist. Recommendation on the cover by the author of Frakonomics. Amazing how many self-proclaimed rogue economists there are about, and how orthodox they are for rogues. It's a form of vanguardism. They don't just think of themselves as better than normal people, but on a different level of consciousness even from other economists. The image he conjures up is of him in a coffee shop instantly aware of the many processes needed to make a cappucino, from the rolling of the steel to make the cappucino machine to the milking of the cow for the milk. Only economists understand these things, you see, and only thrusting young economists understand the real world, not those worthless greybeards in their ivory towers. He gives an anecdote: a Soviet official asking wonderingly "who controls the bread supply in London?" He is supposedly shocked and confused at the answer "nobody". It's the market, you see. Invisible hands feeling up supply lines. There is a problem. The supply of bread in Britain is dominated by two companies and they supply 90% of the country's sliced loaves. As for the other few percent, even in the Soviet Union it wasn't illegal to bake your own bread.

I don't like vanguardism. Modern art relies on it. Normal people just don't understand why a pickled fish is art. They don't understand why tinned human excrement can be sold to a tax-funded gallery for more than its weight in gold. It's a good job the modern art crowd are so much better than us, leading us to a bright new future. The original vanguardism, of course, was Communism before the advent of the popular front. A small revolutionary party would drag the society as a whole kicking and screaming into the inevitable revolutionary future. As a fan of democracy I don't like it.

I don't like economists, either. Back in the 50s the RAND Corporation in America, the ones who sent Jenkins and Healey right wing, came ot the conclusion that people play games to win. This led to the birth of game theory, as chronicled in Adam Curtis' The Trap. They extraploated this to life a concluded that people always tried to beat each other and didn't care for empathy or compassion. they eventually got around to testing this most unfalsifiable of theories. Only two groups behaved as the model predicted. One was psychopaths. The other was economists.

See here for some economists. Also here and here. Friedman, Volker, "Nobel Prize" for economics.

I had another book at the same time. Called the Bottom Billion. Apparently the world's getting better. Only one billion people are now poor, apparently. No longer 1 rich and 5 poor, now 5 rich or heading that way and 1 poor. South Africa is one of those moved from poor to rich. He also gives some figures for growth which state increased growth since 1980, which is contrary to the truth. South Africa is, in fact, worse off since apartheid ended. More people live without electricity and without running water. Median average incomes are lower. Of course the rich have done well. Just like in Zimbabwe where the regime members have taken land (which was paid for by Britain to give to poor blacks) and become part of the ruling land owning class. South Africa is more industrialised, or it was, so they're had to be a bit more clever.

The one recommended by Frakonomics man claimed the free market led to honesty and "perfect information", as Adam Smith said the market needed to function. It's wrong, of course. The market leads to profitable lies. No-one advertises the faults of their products. Only government forces stops rampant fraud. Adam Smith also said the rich should pay more than proportionate to the wealth. Of course, the right wingers in the Adam Smith Institute aren't too eager to retail that quote, are they?

I believe Naomi Klein has written a book called "Shock Doctrine". Well named. It's about CIA trauma economics. Crush unions, drive people into poverty and they become more easily programmable. It's normal trauma based mind control on a grand scale and with more poverty, less buggery. On an unrelated note I saw an advert for Dragon's Den last night. A woman in high heels crushing a tiny little would-be entrepreneur. I don't know if she's the one who made her money from A4E.

Women wear dot on their foreheads in Hinduism and also in some brands of neo-paganism. For example to one I've cited elsewhere in which they dance naked on pews. Symbolises the goddess within, apparently. I think it's no coincidence that the left hand path is the god within.

That is all.

I've been remiss.

I've been busy. The JobCentre have decided they need written proof of three things you do each week to find a job. So, I've had plenty of fiction to write. I've had bother with the local council too, they have taken the opportunity of my going from New Deal provision to stop the housing benefit and demand I reapply.

Still, I'll look in my notes and come up with something very interesting. Plenty going on in the world. Ohio representative showing porn to school kids. Cameron continuing his SPOOKy rise to power after last week's blip. Iraq (and Afghanistan) having record opium harvests. Feminists worshiping satan and destroying our legal traditions. I'll come up with something interesting tomorrow. More pretty pictures, perhaps.

No time.

The jobcentre's gone all fascist in my absence.
