Email to someone who said Reagan was responsible for the fall of the USSR
Tuesday June 06th 2006, 10:04 pm
Filed under: politics
Written By:

I got into a discussion recently about Reagan and heard it said that Reagan did more to bring down USSR than anyone else. It got me thinking – here are some of those meandering thoughts in the form of an email response. There are some interesting links included that I thought would be of interest even more than my half baked analysis of a situation that is well beyond my knowledge of history – more armchair historian than anything.

Today at the most war-glorifying, soldier-heroing ceremony ever – the ceremony that repeatedly bellowed the lies of this war of spreading freedom & democracy while protecting our freedom & democracy – we stand in the middle of the parade route and represent the voice of peace. We (including our 77 yr. old elder) are spit on, screamed at, threatened, materials snatched from our hands & ripped up, as we stand on the grounds of peace.

“Net Neutrality!” Can they really control the internet?

Filed under: Justice,media,politics,Truth
Written By:

Understandably the thought of “Controlling the Internet” appears to be a daunting task. In fact; could they do that? Isn’t there a hodgepodge of networks and technologies that is this wonderful melting pot for the whole world to share in? And it’s diversity almost impossible to control because of it’s complexity?

As of now, the simple answer to that is:
YES
They can control all of that.

It Doesn’t Seem to be Letting Up
Thursday February 09th 2006, 2:12 pm
Filed under: Goodness,politics
Written By:

The last few months have seemed to be heavy to me. The other day while driving to work I heard the discussions about Iran and felt some despair about the situation. The thoughts actually popped into my head, “Just think about something else”. I immediately recoiled at this. If I do what does that say about me? Does it say that I am powerless, and that I have nothing to offer? That even my thoughts and passions have no power – even over myself?

“While magic as I understand it is more a craft than an art or a science, the basic principle holds. The medium of magic is consciousness — one’s own consciousness, that of other people, and (more controversially, at least within the worldview of modern industrial culture) that of other-than-human entities of various kinds. The tools of magic are will, imagination, and the innate structures of consciousness itself, constellated through formal patterns of symbol and ritual. The goals of magic are defined by the individual magician.”
