Julian Assange Tortured with Psychotropic Drug

Retired USAF lieutenant colonel Karen Kwiatkowski writes in an article posted at Lew Rockwell’s website that Julian Assange is receiving the same treatment as suspected terrorists while in captivity at “Her Majesty’s Prison Service” at Belmarsh.  The FBI, Pentagon, and CIA are “interviewing” Assange. Kwiatkowski writes: Interviewing is the wrong word.  I’d like to say doctoring him, because it would be more accurate, except that word implies some care for a positive outcome.  Chemical… …

You Can’t Just Tweet Oppression Away- by Adam Michael Krause

It has become widely accepted that Internet-based social media has profoundly changed the nature and practice of social activism. We are told that Twitter and Facebook empower the powerless and make the act of confronting oppression easier and more efficient. The recent events in Iran, Egypt, and Madison, Wisconsin are trotted out as examples, while books like Clay Shirky’s Here Comes Everybody provide the theoretical underpinning. The recent events throughout the Middle… …

TUMBLR’S PORN BAN REVEALS WHO CONTROLS WHAT WE SEE ONLINE

TUMBLR WAS NEVER explicitly a space for porn, but, like most things on the internet, it is chock full of it anyway. Or at least it was. On Monday, to the shock of the millions of users who had used the microblogging site to consume and share porn GIFs, images, and videos, Tumblr banned the “adult content” that its CEO, David Karp, had defended five years prior. In the hours after the… …

ΔΕΝ ΘΑ ΠΕΡΑΣΕΙ Ο ΦΑΣΙΣΜΟΣ! – του Σωτήρη Σιαμανδούρα

Εδώ και δέκα χρόνια το ελληνικό κεφάλαιο, με ναυαρχίδα τις τράπεζες, μας έχει καταστρέψει τη ζωή. Κι όταν λέμε ότι μας έχει καταστρέψει τη ζωή, λέμε ότι βρεθήκαμε να περνάμε τη μέρα μ’ ένα κουλούρι (αγνώριστος έγινα) και να βρωμάνε πόλεις ολόκληρες από τις σαμπρέλες που έκαιγε ο κόσμος για να ζεσταθεί. Άμα δε, βαρέσουμε κάνα προσκλητήριο, η μισή γενιά μας είναι κάπου μετανάστες. Έρχονται λοιπόν τώρα και μας λένε… …

SEEKING MAPS AT THE END OF THE WORLD

After the initial wave of terror and fury, my post-election tactic has mostly been dissociation. Out of safety, out of self-protection. I know that ignoring these truths won’t save me- that I need to engage, to stand in solidarity with the homies- with the scientists- with the immigrants and children of immigrants- with the Muslims- with the Mexicans- with the queers- with the artists.. but something about the way the… …

Global publishing giant wins $15 million damages against researcher for sharing publicly-funded knowledge- by Glyn Moody

It’s not every day that one of the world’s largest publishing companies is awarded $15 million in damages for copyright infringement against a site set up by a Kazakh neuroscientist. That makes the almost total lack of wider coverage of Elsevier’s win in New York against Sci-Hub surprising. But it is only the latest development in a saga that is of great interest for the deep flaws it exposes in both scientific publishing and… …

Not a struggle for the refugees, but with the refugees: Anarchism at work in Greece.

While they continue to command so much attention in the mainstream media, the ‘battles’ between old and new modes of distribution, between the pirate and the institution of copyright, seem to many of us already lost and won.

Deconstructing the Power of the Global Elite Part 1: Brute Force, The Power to Hurt, and Psychological Control By Judith Young, Ph.D.

In the aftermath of Congressional approval of bailout legislation granting sweeping powers to the financial elite, the body politic appears to be helplessly mired in the relentless unfolding of classical fascism before its very eyes. Coming to terms with this terrifying predicament can benefit from a primer that renders naked the forms of raw power used by the global elite in advancing its agenda for full spectrum dominance. This will… …

In Part II, I will address several forms of psychological control designed to induce states of mind that are inherently disempowering, that eliminate or severely diminish our will to take corrective action in the face of grievous harm. As stated in a famous… …
