F*** The RIAA! No Seriously…

This morning, the number one story on Digg is “The Pirate Bay Trial: The Official Verdict – Guilty”. 

Excerpt from TorrentFreak.com

Just minutes ago the verdict in the case of The Pirate Bay Four was announced. All four defendants were accused of ‘assisting in making copyright content available’. Peter Sunde: Guilty. Fredrik Neij: Guilty. Gottfrid Svartholm: Guilty. Carl Lundström: Guilty. The four receive 1 year in jail each and fines totaling $3,620,000. 

The court has found that by using Pirate Bay’s services there has been file-sharing of music, films and computer games to the extent the prosecutor has stated in his case,”said the district court. “This file-sharing constitutes an unlawful transfer to the public of copyrighted performances.”

Seriously, WTF? A group of very intelligent and talented individuals spent weeks fighting the case. Even though this cause has millions of supporters (even holding public demonstrations around the world!) the big companies won, in a Swedish court. 

Read that again, American big corporations overruled Swedish law. The Pirate Bay was operating legally in its own country, but despite that, were all given jailtime. 

For me, and most others, the issue comes down to this. The public found a way to distribute material on their own using a legal fire sharing technique called torrent files. These are used to send large files, uncopyrighted files too, to anyone on the net very efficienty. The big companies could not figure out a way around this. Instead of revamping their business model (like iTunes), they instead take out the innocent to safeguared their power and fortunes.

Welcome to world governorship by the corporations.

Monsanto’s dream bill, HR 875

by Linn Cohen-Cole

To begin reversing GM contamination will require ending the power biotech companies such as Monsanto exert over our government and through that, over our food.

HR 875, was introduced by Rosa DeLauro whose husband Stanley Greenburg works for Monsanto.

The bill is monstrous on level after level – the power it  would give to Monsanto, the criminalization of seed banking, the prison terms and confiscatory fines for farmers, the 24 hours GPS tracking of their animals, the easements on their property to allow for warrantless government entry, the stripping away of their property rights, the imposition by the filthy, greedy industrial side of anti-farming international “industrial” standards to independent farms – the only part of our food system that still works, the planned elimination of farmers through all these means.

The corporations want the land, they want more intensive industrialization, they want the end of normal animals so they can substitute patented genetically engineered ones they own, they want the end of normal seeds and thus of seed banking by farmers or individuals.  They want control over all seeds, animals, water, and land.

Silent Weapons for a Quiet War – LEAKED

Factsnews – The following are excerpts from a document that was supposedly found in 1986 in a copier purchased by IBM. It details the “Quiet War” being conducted by the elites in America and all over the world.

Consequently, in the interest of future world order, peace, and tranquillity, it was decided to privately wage a quiet war against the American public with an ultimate objective of permanently shifting the natural and social energy (wealth) of the undisciplined and irresponsible many into the hands of the self-disciplined, responsible, and worthy few.

In conclusion, the objective of economic research, as conducted by the magnates of capital (banking) and the industries of commodities (goods) and services, is the establishment of an economy which is totally predictable and manipulatable.

In order to achieve a totally predictable economy, the low-class elements of society must be brought under total control, i.e., must be housebroken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long-term social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity to question the propriety of the matter.

In order to achieve such conformity, the lower-class family unit must be disintegrated by a process of increasing preoccupation of the parents and the establishment of government-operated day-care centers for the occupationally orphaned children.

The quality of education given to the lower class must be of the poorest sort, so that the moat of ignorance isolating the inferior class from the superior class is and remains incomprehensible to the inferior class. With such an initial handicap, even bright lower class individuals have little if any hope of extricating themselves from their assigned lot in life.

This form of slavery is essential to maintain some measure of social order, peace, and tranquillity for the ruling upper class.

…Then the response of the household to future shocks can be predicted and manipulated, and society becomes a well-regulated animal with its reins under the control of a sophisticated computer-regulated social energy bookkeeping system.

In order to achieve such sovereignty, we must at least achieve this one end: that the public will not make either the logical or mathematical connection between economics and the other energy sciences or learn to apply such knowledge.

The same thing is achieved by a government by printing money beyond the limit of the gross national product, and economic process called inflation. This puts a large quantity of money into the hands of the public and maintains a balance against their greed, creates a false self-confidence in them and, for awhile, stays the wolf from the door. They must eventually resort to war to balance the account, because war ultimately is merely the act of destroying the creditor, and the politicians are the publicly hired hit men that justify the act to keep the responsibility and blood off the public conscience.

When the subject citizens are rendered unable to control their financial affairs, they, of course, become totally enslaved, a source of cheap labor.

This document illustrates the secret to controlling the masses. We are programmed by economic inputs and measured by our outputs. The “enslaved” class is technically stuck in this position because we are too naive and trusting to believe that something like this could really be going on. WAKE UP THIS IS REAL! Information equals freedom from enslavement…

2009: A Resurgence of Eugenics?

Old-Thinker News | Feb. 3, 2009

By Daniel Taylor

As the world moves further into economic chaos, eugenics, an old idea cloaked under modern terminology, is making a comeback. During these times it is easy to see how a resurgence and re-packaging of eugenics could come about. Do you have more than two children? Your carbon footprint has been deemed unacceptable. Your economic burden on society cannot be tolerated during unprecedented economic times. The growing population of elderly individuals will be an incredible burden on a faltering system, we are told. Some governmental think tanks see younger generations pursuing euthanasia policies as an option.

Eugenics “went underground” after WWII, but continued under the guise of population control and environmentalism, proceeding partly with the aid of Rockefeller family wealth. Rather than focus on “quality control” the emphasis was on “quantity control”. One of the first books to tie these ideas together post-WWII, titled Our Plundered Planet, was written by Fairfield Osborn, who in 1921 served as the President of the Second International Congress of Eugenics in New York.

Today, we see calls for one or two child policies to be implemented to fight global warming. The Times recently reported, “Couples who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the government’s green adviser has warned.” The Times article reports that Jonathon Porritt, who directs the United Kingdom’s Sustainable Development Commission, is calling for abortion and contraception to fight global warming.
