as Bertolt Brecht suggested in "The Solution": The Secretary of the Writers' Union Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee Stating that the people Had forfeited the confidence of the government And could win it back only By redoubled efforts.

Re: Have to CIA killed people by hacking their cars?

The Washington Post spent their journalistic efforts on investigating how Webb's story was flawed rather than actually impartially investigating the story for themselves. What a waste of journalistic resources! The fourth estate, use their resources to (amongst other things) delegitimise and weaken...

Re: Have to CIA killed people by hacking their cars?

Michael Hastings the great (real) investigative reporter was most likely murdered this way - when you read his writing and hear him in interviews - you can see that those who are a threat - if they can't be bought - are simply removed one way or another - it was a political assassination really http...

Re: Is Trump our first FAKE President? (US)

He is fake in that he is not what he is - I mean, he presides over you in a fake way - he's more crass (gobshite) businessman than politician, which is ok and fits well with the times, America is a company and him its first (openly) real CEO. A corporate coup d'état where...

Re: Muslims in the West

I'd like to return to the topic of Muslims in the West by raising a few questions relating to Muslims who are living in the U.S. If I were living in a country that demonizes my culture, my values, my beliefs, my religion--if I were to find myself living under such conditions, how would I view the n...

Skill and talent
Are absent in your work
Why do you do it
A made thing closed
Is just that
Keeping it open and unfinished
Makes it preempt time and stay neutral

Re: Muslims in the West

Please say more - as evidence for all to see

Though in a way I think I already answered Bob's question with the idea (and going along with his premise) that today it's all about Islamic terrorism and not much else - because that's the idea and frame that our powers want (us) to focus on.

Re: Muslims in the West

So the Muslim in our time (for whatever reason) has been designated by power as the enemy. And in this we are invited to explore and build upon. This would be our (the peoples) position. That from the evidence from power is it then wise to assume the (extreme) Muslim as enemy. This while the West is...

Re: Muslims in the West

So the narrative is that some Muslims (extremist) are carrying out terror attacks in revenge for the West's 'intervention' (imperial invasion) of the Middle East and Africa, etc. So the West destroys a people and their homeland and then promote surprise and outrage when some of these people retaliat...
