Being Crazy in a Sick Society Is Actually Healthy

Being Crazy in a Sick Society Is Actually Healthy

 

 

Krishnamurti once said that “it is no measure of health to be well
adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” However, being born and brought
up in such a society, most people can’t realize that it is sick, let
alone that they are part of this sickness, just like fish, which, living
in water, cannot realize that they are in water and part of the sea
life.



What does it mean to live a normal life? In the modern world,
especially in the West, it means to be brainwashed at a very young age
for over a decade by what we call schooling, to later on work as a wage slave for almost the rest of your life competing with others so as to merely survive, to mindlessly consume products without end because manipulative advertising convinced you to do so, while at the same time you unconsciously harm the planet we inhabit, to slowly poison your physical organism by feeding it with disease causing foods, to obey to the rules and believe in the dogmas handed
down to you by those in authority, to be passive and uncreative,
suppressing yourself in countless of ways, living in suffering yet doing
nothing to overcome it.

Transcarpathia And The “Western Front” | OrientalReview.org

 

 

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto was speaking at an OSCE meeting in
Vienna last week when he requested that the organization send a special
monitoring mission to Ukraine’s western
region of Transcarpathia, arguing that anti-Hungarian demonstrations
there have made it necessary for the international community to keep an
eye on the situation. He also made it clear that Budapest interprets
Kiev’s new language law as being discriminatory against the Hungarian
minority in the area. [ 579 more words ]

Tout a commencé sur l’île de Robinson, par Stephen Hymer (Le Monde diplomatique, avril 2012)

 

 En 1719, l’écrivain britannique Daniel Defoe donne naissance au
personnage de Robinson Crusoé. Voyageur anglais, celui-ci fait naufrage
sur une île située à l’embouchure de
l’Orénoque, au Venezuela. Pour l’économiste Stephen Hymer, la vie qu’il
se compose alors constitue une parfaite allégorie du mécanisme qui fonde
le mode de production capitaliste : l’accumulation primitive.

Quarante ans d’immigration dans les médias en France et aux Etats-Unis, par Rodney Benson (Le Monde diplomatique, mai 2015)

 

 «On a tendance à ne parler des immigrés que sous l’angle du fait divers
ou du misérabilisme, à ne les voir que comme des agresseurs ou des
victimes», observait en 1988 Robert
Solé, journaliste au Monde. Trente ans plus tard, la remarque n’a rien
perdu de sa pertinence. Et sa validité dépasse largement les frontières
françaises.

 

Naomi Klein - The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism - FREE WILL

Naomi Klein - The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism - FREE WILL

 

 

By
comparing the confluence of ideas about modifying behaviour using shock
therapy and other forms of sensory deprivation (which culminated in the
top-secret CIA project called MKULTRA
during the 1950s) alongside the metaphor of similar shock treatment
modifying national economics using the teachings of Milton Friedman and
the Chicago School of economics, The Shock Doctrine presents the
workings of global capitalism in this framework of how the United
States, along with other western countries, has exploited natural and
human-engineered disasters across the globe to push through reforms and
set-up other mechanisms that suit those in power and ‘shock’ other
countries into a certain wanted behaviour. Chronologically, some
historical examples are the using of Pinochet’s Chile, Argentina and its
junta, Yeltsin’s Russia, and the invasion of Iraq. A trumped-up villain
always provides distraction or rationalisation for the intervention of
the United States—for example, the threat of Marxism, the Falklands,
nuclear weapons, or terrorists—and further, is used by those in power as
more justification for the great shift of money and power from the many
into the hands of the few(er)

Implausible Denials: The Crime at Jabal al Tharda. US-led Air Raid on Behalf of ISIS-Daesh Against Syrian Forces | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

 

 PROF. TIM ANDERSON: On 17 September 2016 a carefully planned US-led air
raid on Jabal al Tharda (Mount Tharda), overlooking Deir Ezzor airport,
slaughtered over 100 Syrian soldiers and delivered control of the
mountain to DAESH / ISIS. After that surprise attack, the terrorist
group held the mountain for almost a year, but did not manage to take
the airport or the entire city. US-led forces admitted the attack but
claimed it was all a ‘mistake’. However uncontested facts, eye witness
accounts and critical circumstances show that was a lie. This article
sets out the evidence of this crime, in context of Washington’s
historical use of mercenaries for covert actions, linked to the doctrine
of ‘plausible deniability’.

The recent Equifax Cybersecurity Breach was an eye opener like no
other. The personal information of 145 million Americans were taken,
including but not limited to social security numbers, addresses, and

accomplish this with relative ease. In light of this, cybersecurity
experts have put out a number of helpful tips to help you maintain your

 The US economy is caught in a trap. That trap is the Department of
Defense: an increasingly sticky wicket that relies on an annual,
trillion-dollar redistribution of
government-collected wealth. In fact, it’s the biggest “big government”
program on the planet, easily beating out China’s People’s Liberation
Army in both size and cost. It is not only the “nation’s largest
employer,” with 2.867 million people currently on the payroll, but it
also provides government benefits to 2 million retirees and their family
members. And it actively picks private sector winners by targeting
billions of dollars to an elite group of profit-seeking contractors.

The Case Against Iraqing Iran

 

 

Opinion by David Swanson:
War supporters said the U.S. urgently needed to attack Iran in 2007. It
did not attack. The claims turned out to be lies. Even a National Intelligence Estimate in 2007 pushed back and admitted that Iran had no nuclear weapons program.

The same lies used for War on Iraq must now be revived, as for every war ever fought, for a War on Iran.

 The basis for the claim that the Russians interfered in our elections
has always been that they hacked the DNC and through Wikileaks used the
hacked information to help get Donald
Trump elected. But this story has never really made any sense. Why hack
information showing that Hillary's team had cheated Sanders out of the
nomination and then release it too late to really do any good? Why, with
all the other damning information available out there in Hillary --
Uranium One, totally non-secure server, etc -- would the Russians have
undertaken such a risky and ultimately ineffective strategy to push the
vote in favor of Trump?

Empire Files: A Massacre of Farmers in US-Colombia ‘War On Drugs’

 

 

On October 5, 2017, police opened fire on unarmed farmers in Tumaco,
Colombia. Eight were killed, with dozens more shot. The massacre was
part of a crackdown on coca farmers in
the "War On Drugs" despite an agreement for crop substitution--and
amidst new threats from Trump, ordering the government to use more force
or face consequences.

The
Empire Files goes on-the-ground to investigate the massacre,
interviewing witnesses and casualties. Abby Martin visits
recently-destroyed farms, uses hidden cameras to confront soldiers about
the operations, and explores the context of such a killing less than a
year after the historic peace deal ending the country's 53-year civil
war.

#catalunyareferendum

BRUSSELS — The ousted leader of Catalonia recently addressed a rally of
separatist voters in a packed theater in the Catalan city of Igualada.
He was not among his separatist supporters, but spoke via satellite from
hundreds of miles away: in Belgium.

The long-distance campaign
for re-election by the leader, Carles Puigdemont, highlights the
unorthodox circumstances surrounding the Dec. 21 Catalan elections. They
were convened by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy of Spain to defeat a
secessionist drive by Mr. Puigdemont and other separatist officials and
to return the restive region to what the Spanish leader called
“normality.”

When I travelled to Barcelona for the Catalan consultation of 2014 the
mood was relaxed, sanguine almost. The intense Gaudí monoliths that
surround you in the city, they tower over you with their great
gargoyles; art nouveau on steroids. A sobering reminder toward - not
just the enduring fortitude of Catalan culture - but, perhaps, the
benighted spirit in which Gaudí viewed Spanish imperialism. At night
time they're truly beautifully frightening works of architecture.

bringing the total to 125 declassified films now available.


Hundreds more of these decaying films could reach the internet as
high-definition videos in the coming months as the team tracks the
videos down in warehouses, digitally scans them, and re-analyzes them
for crucial data. Then, if they don't reveal any secrets that North
Korea or other adversaries might not have, they release the videos on
YouTube.

Editorial Pick: Eric Ortiz

"Be critical and skeptical. Provide alternatives. Don’t wait for
someone else to develop the mass of people we need for change to come.
Take the initiative. Be the change. Be a connector. Be an agitator for
justice. Contest elections. Build mass movements. Elevate
underrepresented voices.

Together, we can take the profit out of war and start a massive anti-war movement."
