S.A.C. Capital Advisors LCC: Major hedge-fund company S.A.C. Capital Advisors, founded in the early 1990s, is a "$14 billion dollar group of multi-strategy, multi-discipline" company. Yet in 2007, a scandal erupted that "stunned" Wall Street. Former S.A.C. Capital Advisors employee Andrew Tong filed suit against his supervisor Ping Jiang, whom is said to have forced Tong into taking female hormones and wearing female clothing in order "to eliminate the trader’s aggressive male attitude so he could become a more obedient and detail-oriented player" at work, The New York Times reports. According to CNBC, S.A.C. Capital Advisors and Ping Jiang "vehemently deny the charges" and have reached no settlement with Tong.
I don't really have anything to add to that. There's not much more I can say.
So let's move on. Or rather back, to Christmas of 1914. The fighting men showing their humanity to their fellow man through the medium of football, a nice little kickabout in no-man's land. Germany winning through and offside-goal, I hear, although in reality there were considerably more than one game. It's not the most impressive of shows of working-class solidarity, but it's the most human. No Americans invited of course, being both before their involvement and in the form of a sport their organised working class was never strong enough to adopt.
A little known fact is that the first international cricket match was between the USA and Canada.
Class, as I say, is a nation, more likely to make people similar than the country in whcih they were born, especially with the ruling class. Nation is just an illusion created by the prestidigitators of the masses. Bloody Mary gave Calais back to the French and married a Spaniard because she was a ruler first and English second if at all.
Stockholm syndrome is a good example. The origins of the name are in a Swedish bank vault where some bank robbers and their hostages took refuge after the police arrived before they had a chance to escape. I imagine the hostages weren't best pleased to start with, having been made hostages, but eventually they got over their annoyance. They became very friendly with their captors, offering to act as human shields and engaging in sexual relations with their captors. Of course the forces of law and order like to portray this as sinister mind control, which they'd know all about, but it's something far more dangerous to them: empathy. Stockholm Syndrome has never been reported between people who speak different languages and come from different cultures, such as westerners in Lebanon, but it's the normal experience between similar people. It should be expected. Only the artificial seperations imposed on us make it surprising.
This fellowship is obviously stronger between men.
Headless and heedless, she gallops across the globe, shrieking for -- and getting -- the manblood that, for reasons still unexplained, sustains and comforts and delights her.
And from Njal's Saga, in some bizarre olde time translation I found on the web:
"Not so," says she, "thou shalt live all the same, and be called a better man, if thou betrayest not him to whom thou oughtest to behave best."
Then she took a linen hood out of her bag, it was clotted with blood all over, and torn and tattered, and said, "This hood, Hauskuld Njal's son, and thy sister's son, had on his head when they slew him; methinks, then, it is ill doing to stand by those from whom this mischief sprang."
"Well!" answers Ingialld, "so it shall be that I will not be against Njal whatever follows after, but still I know that they will turn and throw trouble on me."
"Now mightest thou," said Rodny, "yield Njal and his sons great help, if thou tellest him all these plans."
"That I will not do," says Ingialld, "for then I am every man's dastard if I tell what was trusted to me in good faith; but it is a manly deed to sunder myself from this quarrel when I know that there is a sure looking for of vengeance but tell Njal and his sons to be ware of themselves all this summer, for that will be good counsel, and to keep many men about them."
.. I am inclined to regard the enormous importance of the sissy concept in American life as due to that feminine dominance which is everywhere apparent ...
-- Eric Dingwall, "the American Woman"
Fascism is a female dominance cult, a hysterical movement of the weak-minded into militarism and the ill-focused effeminate vengefulness they're so famous for.
"In like manner, the scientific rulers will provide one kind of education for ordinary men and women, and another for those who are to become holders of scientific power. Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless, and contented. Of these qualities, probably contentment will be considered the most important. In order to produce it, all the researches of psycho-analysis, behaviourism, and biochemistry will be brought into play.... All the boys and girls will learn from an early age to be what is called 'co-operative,' i.e., to do exactly what everybody is doing. Initiative will be discouraged in these children, and insubordination, without being punished, will be scientifically trained out of them."
-- Bertrand Russell
It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.
Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible.
I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology.... Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called 'education.' Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part.... It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.
Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.
More eventually. Next year, most like.

It's an interesting board, rigorousintuition. I'll give them credit for not banning me yet, this is quite a bit longer than I lasted at the supposedly liberal Straight Dope Message Board. Still, I imagine I'll be out before too long, as Nemo and Doodad have been banned and Jeff is evidently on a bit of a roll of bannings. He requested that a thread be started about the CIA involvement in feminist, but I don't expect that to change things. Perhaps I'm just paranoid. Of course, it's not paranoia if they're really out to get you and the PC police are the leading enemies of free speech to this day. Just today the papers reported the banning of sexist jokes in prison. Of course, just because it's in the papers doesn't make it true. See Winterval.
"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
That, of course, was the reason for the founding of soc.men, because the anti-feminists were ejected from the newly moderated soc.women.
Now, feminism isn't just evil because it's backed by the CIA/Nazi/Thule/Condor network and the generational pederasts of the Seneca Falls Convention, but because of it's acts for which the members of the movement must take responsibility. They lend their support to the movement, they are the source of its legitimacy, they can't wash their hands of it. It's rank and file feminist who is disturbing. Sally Miller Gearhart writing her gendercidal book isn't that bad, that so many women bought it is.
In truth there are no heroes and no villains, we humans can only make an impact as movements and organisations. There are evil movement, if not villains, my feminist friends, so you can't pass the buck and deny reponsibility.
This is the reality, not just a conspiracy, but feminists allowing evil to be done in their names while denying responsibility.
Women prefer to use their "woman's way of knowing" about feminist and therefore divine that it only works for good, those of us with a firmer base in proper epistemology know better. That's what feminism's about, though, it's an internal movement with external effects. This was spotted by the author of "A Twist of Faith" and by the feminist Alice the Kurious on rigint, feminism is an internal movement to transform women and indeed humans generally. It's the left-hand path of self-worship and internal godhood.
The external phenomoenon, injustices and lies, are just the manifestations of this transformation and the means by which this transformation is brought about. Sheer Hite, say, with her claim that one in four college women is raped. It doesn't take much to disprove it, the knowledge that most of these "victims" didn't accept that they had been raped, the knowledge that she defined sex under the influence as neccesarily rape, and so forth. But there's no questioning and, as Goebbels knew, a lie repeated becomes an accepted truth.
It reminds me of the time Jon Ronson went to meet the official KKK, who had gone all PC and rebranded themselves. They'd banned the word "nigger", banned hatred of other races and adopted the theme of working for the white race so-called rather than against the other races. Most of the membership had gone off ot splinter groups who still hate niggers. The same claims are made by feminists, to only be pro-woman not anti-man but in a society dominated by women's interests this idea in untenable for to be pro-woman to the exclusion of others in this situation is TO BE anti-man. It's illogical, like the pathetic claims of the rump KKK, but it gets no rival claims from the Big Lie media.
For example, feminists still campaign for AA and so-called positive discrimination in education, despite existing disparities in favour of women. The assumption is always of a disadvantage for women, the reality usually the opposite.
Here's a list of discriminations against men. Here's another.
Feminism, in fact, is the leading enemy of both equality and democracy in the present day. Take women in parliament, for example. When the policy is to appoint women to safe seats they complain that they aren't trusted in competitions. When given other seats they're being set up for failure. When the Labour party introduced women's only shortlists they were challenged in European courts and defeated. The won the election adn changed the law to allow them. They're generally used to appoint leadership-friendly females who'll follow the party line instead of favoured local candidates. Democracy has occasionally bit back, as at Blaenau Gwent in 2005 when Peter Law ran as and Independant and overturned one of the biggest Labour majorities in the country. Generally, though, we who favour democracy haven't done well. The Tories are no better, they only disagree on method.
Child Support is a war on the poor, as Glenn Sacks has shown and the special pleading of the crime exceptum called rape and the laws that prosecute it is one of the great injustices of our time. Not only do rape shield laws deny the right to face an accuser while not protecting the accused but accusers are paid compensation just for making an allegation, paid by the government. Nifong was sensible, though not just, to prosecute. Could have been a vote winner. Next time choose white woman, black man, might get away with it then. People don't remember it now that Civil Rights is dead at the feet of feminism, it's life force drained away, but it was the accusations of rape by white women that led to the majority of lynchings in the American South.
Rebels have suffered. The likes of Farrell and Hoff-Summers ahve just been ignored, Pizzey need police protection when she visits her own country because she out their terrorist antics and Steinmetz was shot at by people who didn't like the results of her scientific studies.
DV shelters have also been know the be embezzled, according to the EJF book, a known source of CIA funds.
I've talked before about the presence of foreskins in anti-wrinkle creams and the trade in torture and severed body-parts circumcision generates in the US. No less serious, it is, than the ritual sacrifice of Ukrainian new-borns for the harvesting of their stem cells for use in Caribean cosmetic quackery.
As a socialist the history of feminism makes me sad. Like the Gaitskillite CIA takeover of the Labour party the left was destroyed from within by the enemies of the working class, not new enemies but the same ones as ever. The Dulles brothers were just as evil when working for the CIA as when for the Nazis as when for the United Fruit Company. And the nazis were as evil running coke for the CIA as when they were killing Jews for Hitler. And the Thule society never ended, despite the prohibition on occult organisations under the Nazis Barbie and the Condor network (a post-war Condor Legion) were still following the old ways...
I say this: women are not little angels but are humans and a frail and faulty like the rest. It only takes a small act of will, the popping on of Roddy Piper's shades, and you know the truth.

Mixed Sex hospital wards aren't going to be abolished, after all, it would seem. Can't say I really care, just brought to mind something from Private Eye a bit back, The Mail used a photo to illustrate a piece about the scandal of mixed sex wards continuing. The same photo, it turns out that they used decades ago to celebrate the introduction of mixed sex wards.
Orwell's attitude to women has always fascinated me, he was obviously torn. Hitler's refence ot women in trousers in Mein Kampf, also.
I still don't believe blacktown.net to be a CIA front.
Sally Murrer, of the Milton Keynes citizen has been a victim of police brutality and intimidation, not to mention wrongful prosecution, from doing a journalist's job and collecting information from sources, which she didn't pay for. The police were embarrassed by some of this information, such as the fact that they lost a ccmplete set of keys to the cop shop. So they arrested her, did a body cavity search and insisted on taking her to court, where she'll be in the coming year. If she loses it will become a crime to receive information from any public official.

I'm not a big fan of the European Union, I agree with Tony Benn that it's a force opposing democracy, too big to be accountable and too comfortably in bed with the corporate elites.
It's given me another reason to oppose it, the treaty of Prum. This is a law related treaty, policing and so on, very much part of the global war on terror. It allows snatch squads of armed thugs from one European country to storm over the border and nab someone from neighbouring territory then drag them off to foreign legal processes. I don't want to be dragged off to a Dtuch court, which don't have juries, or to who knows what barbarities in some Bulgarian hell hole. It's bad enough when they ignore the law and kidnap people off the streets, changing the law to legitimise their activities is worse. Should keep the Americans happy, we can send for people from abroad and the Americans can use our extradition treaty to take them off to who knows where. Watch out Roman Polanski.
It all reminds me of Operation Condor, the international gang of terrorists and death squads that operated, and presumably still operates, throughout Latin America as a link between various gangs of Tyrants, unreconstructed Nazis and Gloria Steinem. They would send hitmen from one country to its neighbours to do their dirty work for them, so the "nationalists" running Uruguay could recruit the Chilean government to deal with their dissidents and the Chileans could get the FBI to deal with Orlando Letelier. And they could put Steinem's fuckbuddy on the job.
So much for nationalism and soveriegnty. Elites will always favour fellow elites over fellowcountrymen. It's nothing new, of course, it's the same old Gladio system in operation, trans-European terrorist gangs with their lists of people who need offing in the event of some ill-defined emergency.
I'm normally fond of the BBC, despite Panorama's recent fall from grace, but it has to be outed here. They, through the World Service, initiated the overthrow of Mossadegh in Iran and a coup in Italy. They're also know to have doctored footage of Orgreave and the Christmas Tree files show that they hire on the basis of ideological conformity. Also that they're not just ignorant, but wilful disinformation artists.
More next time.

Mediawatch's Celebrity Update
Jermain Defoe is now dating Teddy Sheringham's ex Danielle Lloyd. The Tottenham striker has dumped fiancée Charlotte Mears, a reported 'pal' of serial footballer sha**er Ms Lloyd, and thrown her out of their house. Meanwhile, Marcus Bent, another footballing ex of Ms Lloyd, is now with Gemma Atkinson having dumped the mother of his child to get together with Cristiano Ronaldo's ex last month.
It's an incestuous business this footballing lark...
Sounds like a good idea to me, sending out our strumpets to gather the genome of exotic football talents from around the world. Breeding the ideal super-footballer. And to think, they said Brian Barwick didn't know what he was doing...
Something odd going on in my area. It's not exactly Yoko Ono's peace tower, but perhaps reminiscent of the thousand points of light I seem to recale being associated with a certain speech of the Elder Bush and a castle in darkest Belgium. Which is what links it to incest, the nominal theme of this post.
Then I came across original rocketman, who tried to breed the anti-Christ.
But we're all friends here. This take me back to tKl, supporting incest and referencing padeophilia websites, all innocent, like. Bush and the Nazis. Steinem, Pottinger and Pinochet. Nice tidy little networks.
There was a film on the other night, to veer totally away from the incest theme (although I once saw a film called "The Importance of Being Earnest", the happy ending being that they all ended up fucking their cousins, which is aristos for you). It was called a Knight's Tale and had a female blacksmith in it. Not a bit of feminist revisionism, there were female blacksmiths in history. Supposedly the Romans went to try to get nails made for the crucifixion but could only get the blacksmith's wife to make them. Of course, feminists have revised that in light of the necessity of the crucifixion.
More tomorrow, I think.

-- T E Lawrence, a local lad.
"I'm not answering anymore questions without my solicitor", not a difficult thing to say. I wonder why Peter Power (good name) didn't say it. Maybe he didn't know how important what he was saying was, but he had been a big chief at the Met anti-terrorism branch, so that wouldn't say much for his competence in his former line of work, would it.?
I remember thinking, when I listened to him on the Beeb at the time, why on earth is he admitting all this? Such a high-ranking and well informed man can have had only one intention, to pass the information to the public, possibly as a kind of covert whiste-blowing but more likely as a tactic of subconscious intimidation. Rubbing it in our faces. Ha ha, we're evil, we got away with it, sort of thing.

But on Amaracu anyway. I've been thinking about the Kennewick Man, although I don't know much about it. From what I gather the basic story is that a skull came to light, very probably not of redskin origin, and the reds decided they wanted to destroy it for "religious" reasons. I can understand it. They must be paranoid, after all that mistreatment at the hands of the slightly-less-native Americans, so they want to destroy any evidence that they are only the Second Peoples. Personally, I don't see why it's important. They were there before the current majority, if we're to take precedence as virtue. I don't even agree that being somewhere first gives you any great right to a place. Then again, I don't want the Welsh making a comeback.
There's somewhere else this comes out: South Africa. The current black majority of Bantus is far from being the original population of that land. They weren't even there ahead of the white folks. When the first Portugoose rounded the cape that region was only occupied by Khoisan hunter-gatherers. Only after they adopted some European crops could the Bantus sweep in and dispossess, enslave and massacre the little savages that made up the native population, a small band of men who hunt not with their primitive spears but by running after their prey until the prey dies of exhaustion. Or they do. No match for negroids, though.
Don't say I told you, though. They don't want it getting out. They think racists will use it against them. Maybe they're right, but we can't be denying the truth just to quiet racists. The former peoples of lands will just have to accept the new order. Mind you, we should probably stop these wholesale repopulations. The Welsh, Basques, Lapps, Tuaregs, Copts and Khoisan are stuffed, but it's not too late for the Uighers.
But there are people out there destroying evidence for less laudable reasons. Or, I suppose, the same reason. A will not to believe. It cannot exist, so I will make it not exist. The Smithsonian, for example, who supposedly run regular cruises into the ocean to dump artefacts they don't like the implication of into the murky blue depths. As with the paranormal. They claim the moral high ground, the name empiricist, the superiority of their epistemology, but in reality they only see what they want to see. It's like the right-wing economists who set up a the so-called Nobel Prize for economics without any input from the Nobel Foundation, as a mutual back-patting club. It's a bit of a pattern: deny the facts and their implications while claiming a monopoly on all knowledge and reason.
This isn't something I've really gone into before but the interpretation of myth (which I generally accept as at least partly real) and fiction interests me.
Of course it often tells you more about other things than the fiction, that's the point. The various interpretations of the Robin Hood mythos, for example, reflect their time. The Norman Yoke got an outing and he was provided with a cause: fighting for natives against incomers, most recently in the 90s film "Robin Hood" starring Uma Thurman. I suppose that follows on from above, although that wasn't the intention. He's then painted as a sylvaticus, a woodsman gone off into the forest a la HerewarD "The Wake" to set himself up in opposition to the Normans.
Then the romantic movement came in, which gave us the Robin as dispossesed nobleman meme. Obviously this appealed to noblemen rather than the common folk. The oldest tales invariably refer to him as a yeoman, a good English thing to be, although something that causes problems for the experts who argue over whether a yeoman would be an independent man, a sort of large-scale super-peasant, or a rank of servant in a noble household. It was both, it was many other things. A large tenant farmer, small landowner, ship-owner, servant of appropriate rank, shop-keeper, forester, soldier, anyone could be a yeoman. It was like the Old English term thegn in that respect, a thegn could be anyone. You could become one by war, by landowning, by inheritance, by sailing your ship on three trading voyages. We are a nation of shopkeepers, after all.
Then there's the Scottish angle, a derivation of the Earl of Huntingdon idea. Also links in to the similar stories of Gamelyn and William of Cloudesly which are set further up Scotland way. Scotland was essentially an English state long before then. The little Gaelic invasion of dal Riada and the Welshmen of Rheged had been overtaken. Early on the men of Bernicia had occupied Lothian, although they never made it further. Even in the eleventh century Earl Siward went north to eliminate McBeth and replace him with a more pro-English candidate. After 1066 the men of Bernician Lothian were added to by Anglo-Saxon exiles, no doubt mostly from the ruling class and no doubt in large numbers given the thousands who made it to Constantinople so much further away.
As I say, he and his gang were merely "yeomen good", a thief, a forester, a gang-leader and the son of a miller (a wealthy profession), later joined by a shepherdess (the long-forgotten Clorinda) and a friar with his big gang of dogs. In other words, a decent middling sort of bunch, no-one from the extremes of society.
There's a TV version of Robin Hood on the Beeb now. It fits the modern trends perfectly, a girly Robin, a manly Marian, lots of super-intelligence Muslims and the Crusades in the background, like the 90s film "Robin Hood", not starring Uma Thurman, in which Samuel L Jackson introduces the Caesarian and gunpowder into Christendom. Well, the BBC hasn't got such a big budget so there's less explosions and some Arab woman working wonders with her knowledge of the herbal lore of English woodland plants. Crusades in the background. Lots of Muslims passing through, more than you'd expect in thirteenth century Nottinghamshire, certainly, introducing the savage native to steel, gunpowder, medicine and carrier pigeons, and so it goes on.
I prefer fiction that's a bit more realistic. I don't know who benefits fron fictionalisation, but it's not for me to say.
Spock in Star Trek. Was he a reference to Dr Spock, child mind control expert? An Englishman in a Cold War Allegory? Or a Jew in the same thing, as Nimoy thinks? I don't know. I notice a spate of Jungian archetypes in sci-fi. Sliders and Stargate SG-1, for example. The anima, the wise-old-man and the inscrutable savage. Well, they've both got an active woman with what I believe they call "moxy", that's the anima to a T. There's the clever one, a professor in one and a man with glasses in the other. Then there's the savage, these being American programmes that's the black bloke.
Yes, I prefer realistic fiction. Something where you can't trust anyone. Look at the McLibel trial. Half of the members of the Greenpeace group at some of their meetings were spies for McDonalds. They even spied on their spies and used honey traps to entice people to give information. That's nothing to do with the government, but they got information from Special Branch (who settled with the victims out of court). The Karen Silkwood case, they poisoned her with radioactive gases.
Then there's the Vril-ya in the famous Bulwer-Lytton book. They were sexist, I remember writing a tremendously long Usenet post (or cutting and pasting one, anyway) about their matriarchal ways. I've spotted numerous realistic elements of that book, such as the super-beings not flapping their wings in flight, similar to mothman.
I continue my feud with Fortean Times
I can't help thinking that this is a very one sided feud, in that I keep giving them money for their magazine. You may remember that I had a falling out with them over their ignorance of the work of one Dr Igor Smirnoff.
This issue of the esteemed organ was dedicated to the notorious follower of the left-hand path Aleister Crowley. I had intended to send another vitriolic e-mail to them, but I now realise I didn't not who wrote the article and other salient details, so I won't bother. I'll tell you this, though, they defend his "philosophy" as "agency and self-responsibility"!
We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.
-- Book of the Law, Aleister Crowley
The author claimed to be "both and academic and magician", well I'm not suprised. Both require closed minds and the aceptance of authoritarianism.
He then lists a number of things, such as alcoholism, that tend to plague those who dabble in the dark side. These, he says "cannot be Aleister's fault", because they are merely imperfect followers of his perfect philosophy. I suppose I hardly need point out that he died a smack addict in a Hastings doss-house.

Government isn't conducted in Parliament or in the minuted meetings of ministers and civil servants, it's done behind the seems by money and influence. Like Lobbygate, and the similar American scandal involving drug-dealing Jack Abramoff. There's no FOIA documents to show the conspiracy in action, although some occasionally come close. Gottlieb incinerated his archives, but he was naive to write them in the first place. They're a liability. It's not like he needs them for when he writes his memoirs.
What did the media call it? Sofa government, was it? Blair and his little coterie getting together over some exotic coffee concoction to plot and to work other peoples plots into government policy. That's the modern corridors of power, of course. Back then they'd step out of the meeting where the minutes were being taken and make the decisions in the corridors, then it'd be back into the meeting to concoct the pubilc record. It's for the plausible deniability. Send some rogue, like Oliver North, to do your bidding. Get somewhere cosy and decide what you want, then send someone off to do it. If he gets caught there's no record and old Ollie's the one to get the blame for the drug business. A little Escobar all of your own.
Of course it all came out eventually, more or less, the drug business. But by the Lewinsky was on the go and no-one paid attention. Our own secretives wouldn't have been stupid enough to get caught in the first place. Hopsicker can document the connections between drugs and 9/11 but he can't make people take notice. No-one in this country seems all that interested, besides, perhaps, Craig Murray. He's right about the UK involvement in the Central Asian heroin trade, of course. Hasn't cottoned onto the rendition flights being used for illicit drug transport yet, though.
There's a billboard in New York beaming voices into people's heads. Part of an advertising gimmick. Someone over on the RI board who I particularly dislike was unsurprised, "This technology was announced months ago" sort of thing. Of course it was detailed by nessie over at sfbg.com as was many years ago when I was first on the interweb and it was old news even in his day. Psychotronic devices are as old as the psyche. Those Masonic lodges with the draughts-board floors aren't there because they're pretty, it's all for the ffect on the human mind. Psychotronic devices are just a bit less sophisticated now. Who needs psychological techniques when you can use subliminal messages and microwave sound-rays?
But the old ways haven't gone, and probably never will do. Hitler used his oratory, the cinema just made it more widespread. The footage of the mujahideen during the anti-Soviet struggle was noble men with rifles against the skyline, now it's "oppresed" women in desert hovels. classic psyop stuff.
Here's a puzzle: why is it that Orwell, notoriously an enemy of authoritarism, shot by fascists in the Spanish Civil War is the favourite of narco-pederasts and Gladio-ists today? Anything you haven't got, hijack. The CIA made Animal Farm and 1984 into movies and the CIA today still make sure those are his best known works, the works of fiction. Not the suggestions for council housing and allotments in The Road to Wigan Pier or the defence of the homeless in Down and Out in Paris and London. There won't be any press statements or minutes documenting this. There's no need for a Ministry of Truth to doctor the records, although both in corporations and the state it does happen, because things can be effectively sidelined by a system of though entrenched enough to exclude evidence, common sense and masic morality.
We've always been at war with Eastasia and so on.
Which is how power works, in the world of illusion. Dingwall, the parapsychologist's anti-feminist, mentions how Americans live in a world of illusion when it comes to women. Well, this is true of all things, now at least, if not then. The angelification of women is still one of the big ones, and one of the most useful for the powers that be, as well as one of the oldest. It is, in fact, the driving force behind it all. The way to stop people uniting is to keep them paranoid of a spy and enemy under their own roof, as Orwell realised in one of the less-famous parts of 1984. To raise up the ancestral feminine, as Fairhall and ray fear, is only another part of the illusion, for it won't be the goddess lurking behind the scenes and pulling the strings, it'll be those with the right will to power.
Tyrants will always be the same and they will be their own biggest victims for the will to power over your fellow man opens you to forces that would have power over you. As Keel says, we must consciously choose the path we take. Accept the leaven of the Holy Spirit or go down the left-hand-path of Sophia, the Devil, the false enlightenment, the serpent people, whatever you want to call it. Corruption. You will be a proxy either way, of course. You just get to choose for yourself what you will be a proxy to. What you want for others you get for yourself.

-- Abraham Lincoln, 1837
Skidbrooke: St Botolph's church. I don't know what it is about that Botolph, a local lad, but his churches seem to attract weirdness. Him and Magdalene, hiding behind Christ, like. In Skidbrooke the locals have had the fight off, quite literally, devil worshippers offering up sacrifices to their unclean Gods in old Botolph's church.
Lincoln City Football Club: nickname the Imps.
"The continuous consolidation of money and power into higher, tighter and righter hands."
-- George H.W. Bush in 1992
People don't understand the market. Wrinkle cream. Market logic: make wrinklier, increase marekt for wrinle cream. What do you suppose the wrinle cream does?

As I say, there was a gambler. That got me thinking. A gambler is a good example of the old idea of the undeserving poor. It is an old fashioned idea now, mostly Victorian. The deserving poor should be someone who works every hour God sends to support his family and still needs the odd handout. The undeserving poor is a dissolute and drink-sodden wastrel who'll waste any money he gets and is too idle to get any himself. Of course, neither one exists in this perfect form. Neither one exists at all, it's just a construct of the rich to justify their wealth. I believe it was Marx who said the rich will always invent belief systems that justify them holding onto their wealth. Might've been Orwell. Or Orwell quoting Marx, mayhap.
This, as I say, is an obsolete idea. Back in the pre-Thatcherite social democratic era there were no undeserving poor, simply those badly served by the system. I like that. Now it's the Thatcherite model, entrepreneurialism and so on. Wealth is virtue. Right makes might. So forth. The poor are now meant to be undeserving by definition as anyone worth their keep should be able to make it. But it's none of it true. It's a pity. It's a nice Darwinist view of the world, the normal right-wing pattern of seeing the world as they want it to be rather than as it actually is. The truth is that the tax system dictates how many poor and rich there will be and how poor and rich they will be. The economic system. Of course, if I was an entreprenuer I could shove myself to the top of the pile by being the biggest bastard in the big pile of bastards, but I'd rather not. The system simply dictates that you've got to be a bastard to get on, it doesn't pick a name out of a hat to decide who's rich, anyone can be rich. Opportunity and all that. But not everyone can be rich. The reason there are poor people isn't because they lack the entreprenuer gene, although perhaps they do, it's that the structure of society requires some people to be poor and they're the ones best suited to the role.
If they ceased to be poor someone else would have ot take their place.
Could be immigrants, there's been an effort to replace our freedom loving stock with slavish foreigners. Good for the economy, they say. Low wages. Not good for the economy from my point of view. Our ecnomy is based on services and the export of financial services, I don't think a few low-wage labourers is going to help. A few Poles aren't going to enable us the compete on wages with the Chinese and I don't see the bankers in a race to the bottom. They don't want to pay too much for their gardeners and cleaners, I suppose.
I notice Sweden doesn't have extremes of poverty. Has high taxes too. Shocking. Surely they should be bankrupt, forcing those oh-so-valuable entreprenuerial spirits out of their country. The man who invented TetraPak, a glorified cardboard box, is a Swede. He left the country because of the government's outrageous demands that he pay his taxes, as if he was a normal person rather than a Nietzchean superman. Silly Swedes. Look what they've lost! The pleasure of getting to lick the boots of a very rich man. And this is an "inventor", one of the deserving rich if there is such a thing, who made the money himself. Well, collected it in licencing fees, anyway. But all the Swedes have lost is his tax money and he didn't want to pay that anyway.
If only our government would take the hint. We don't need to worship the rich, they're no good for us. I say: "pay your taxes or get out of my country". Cunts. I blame Cromwell. Ireton, too. He argued that the rich had a permanent stake in the Kingdom as its owners and therefore should run it, not give it over to a democracy. It's wrong, even if it wasn't sucha bad argument. The rich can take themselves off whenever they want, the poor are stuck. Especially before the invention of bikes to get on. The rich should pay their taxes, more than proportionately as Adam Smith said, because they get more in return (even if we don't count all the tax moneys they steal in overpriced contracts as so forth). The tax-funded government is the only thing standing between them and a forcible redistribution, you'd think they'd be more grateful.
Society is like Total Football. There are positions to be occupied, all that changes is the individuals occupying them. Robert Maxwell and Arthur Scargill. Maxwell is supposed to be more vituous, a wealth creator rather than a parasite. He pissed off roofs and laughed at the people below.
Things indicative of a lack of civilisation: minding the cold, good sense of smell, talking too much.
Dole incidents: agency, ascot hat (I've told that story).
There was a terror alert recently, turned out to be a hoax, up at Kelham Hall.
I went to a school called Lovers' Lane. I remember now that there was always a belief that there were tunnels under the playing field. I believed it. There was a wooden board in the ground, like a railyway sleeper, which we believed to be the roof. There was also a few stairs leading down into the ground, buried, made of bricks, in some trees. There was a hole too. Supposedly an ant hole but with no ants or anything else, which went as far as the arm could reach. An air hole for the tunnels was the common opinion. In hindsight this all stink of SRA, as do several other things.
Panorama, the BBC flagship documentary has really gone downhill since it was taken over by women. Now it's only half an hour long, picks rubbish subjects and covers them badly. And it's got that Vine on it to make it as much like Tonight wi' Sir Trev as possible. Makes me sick.

"Sophia, Creator God, let your milk and honey flow. . . . Shower us with your love . . . ." chanted more than 2000 women gathered at the 1993 Re-Imagining Conference in Minnesota. "We celebrate sensual life you give us. . . . We celebrate our bodiliness. . . . the sensations of pleasure, our oneness with earth and water," continued one of the leaders. Representing main-line denomination, the women had come from the Presbyterian Church USA (about 400), the United Methodist Church (about 400), the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (313), the United Church of Christ (144), and Baptist, Episcopal, Church of the Brethren churches about (150). About 230 were Roman Catholics. To most of these worshippers, Sophia symbolized inner wisdom and "the feminine image of the Divine." Playful, permissive, and sensuous, she has "become the latest rage among progressive church women."
Rituals help challenge the old and establish the new. To make them more palatable, use old, familiar steps to ease into the new celebrations -- which is just what conference leaders did on the last day, during Sunday morning's alternative to a traditional church service. The "blessing of milk and honey" ritual simply followed the format of a traditional communion service.
The women sang, but not about Jesus. They celebrated with two elements, but not bread and wine. They mentioned God and grace, but the new meanings reflected the pagan context. They celebrated freedom, but mocked the only One who could set them free.
Clinking their glasses of rice milk, they shared in a dramatic responsive reading and singing rite. The speakers read -- with drama and feeling -- the lines of the prayer below (the most erotic suggestions were banished to the endnotes). "Sophia Creator God..." sang the exuberant women between each part. "Let your milk and honey flow... Sophia... Sophia..." Over and over and over...
"Our maker Sophia, we are women in your image. With the hot blood of our wombs we give form to new life....
[All:] Sophia, Creator God, let your milk and honey flow.... Shower us with your love....
"Our mother Sophia, we are women in your image. With the milk of our breasts we suckle the children.... Sophia, Creator God....
"Our guide Sophia, we are women in your image. With our moist mouths we kiss away a tear... With the honey of wisdom in our mouths we prophesy a full humanity to all peoples. Sophia, Creator God... (All drink of the milk and honey)
"Sophia, we celebrate your life-giving energy which pulses through our veins... Halleluya! Pelo tsa rona. . . 
"...We celebrate our unique perspectives, intelligence.... our guides, our spiritual mothers, our models. Halleluya! Pelo tsa rona. . . .
"We celebrate the nourishment of your milk and honey. Through the sharing of this holy manna [could be a hidden reference to "Mana": Moon Mother, creative energy, Goddess of Creation and death] we enter into community which strengthens and renews us for the struggle. Halleluya! Pelo tsa rona . . . .
"We celebrate sensual life you give us.... We celebrate the fingertips vibrating upon the skin of a love. We celebrate the tongue which licks a wound or wets our lips. We celebrate our bodiliness, our physicality, the sensations of pleasure, our oneness with earth and water."
"Not surprisingly, Sophia seemed to reserve a special blessing for lesbian love." observed Kathy Kersten, "The prayer above was read by individual women, except for the ''vibrating fingertips' line, which was read by two women together."
The more sensual and shocking expressions help speed the planned paradigm shift. They cause what educators call cognitive dissonance -- a form of mental confusion that forces people to rethink and stretch their old values to accommodate new ideas and experiences. Their end justifies the means, argue the radical feminists, and their planned end is total cultural transformation. If they have their way, every family, community, business and church would have to conform to feminist beliefs and values.
