Tyrants love exploiting human decency and rules of etiquette, stop giving them this latitude and start restating the rules, no exceptions.
The majority in a democracy do not pander to the minority, doing so is more common in despotism. So if you want despotism keep pandering to the extreme minority.
We actually do some research here, and we found this which is quite good. Ex causa turpi (non oritur actio).
Basically it means to go to court and have the court rule in your favor you must not have been acting badly at the time. If you were acting badly the court may (and probably will) simply throw out your case.
This is why video evidence of cops (or other scum bags) doing the wrong thing is so important, any case they may wish to bring against you is automatically ruined on proof of ‘Ex causa turpi’. Imagine a police officer trespasses on your land (ignoring the many ‘no trespassing’ notices you have displayed) and you beat him with a stick when he refuses to leave, as he was trespassing, he has no cause of action in court. you probably don’t have a case either, but winning against cops in court is almost impossible anyway, so you were better off dealing out your ‘hillbilly justice’ anyway.
A powerful and simple tool to eliminate vexatious actions.
In response to the brutal crackdown in Hong Kong Occupiers converged on London to show support for democratic principles.
Dave Cameron bleated about respect for democracy while allowing brutal crackdowns in his own front yard.
Apparently now even sitting on a tarp is enough to make police aggressive.
Can you believe ‘1984’ was actually written in this country?
When? Almost always because the Koran is a book detailing the expansion of an empire by the use of extreme violence and terror. Islamic leaders always fail at preventing radicals, because the radicals are closer to the Koran in their actions than the Imams.In Islam the radicals control the moderates ( and use violence to gain control) unlike many other religions. The Imams are just there to appease the locals and keep the Islamisation of the host nation in progress.
From just over 2 years ago:
at 0:58 mark ISIS flag
at 1:27 ISIS terrorist who made his kids hold up a severed head.
Inciting murder at 2:28
This was years ago and nothing has changed.
These latest claims by Islamic leaders will not quell the violent nature of this community, they raise their children with violence and breed them to hate. Its just a tactic to attempt the reduce the blowback from the host nation’s people’s calls to reject the foreign fascist ideology growing in their back yard.
Does this guy look familiar?
Yeah from the video from 2 years ago. Did the Islamic leaders prevent him from becoming radicalized? Did they prevent him from going to Iraq to be a terrorist? He even took his son to pose for photos with a severed human head. Find out more about this ‘religion of peace’
Caution actual science content, may cause cognitive dissonance!
Huge number of ill informed people have been very excited about planetary temperatures recently. It’s surprising they care about something so much without knowing the basic facts about it.
So today’s temperatures is nothing remarkable, considering the last few thousand years there have been 5 significant warmer periods. There is even poetry from the medieval period lamenting about crop failure from climate cooling. They used to grow lots of grapes in England when it was warm there, so many streets are called ‘vine street’ no grape vines have grown there for hundreds of years. Look at the warming between 1600 and 1850, a long time before the large scale burning of oil, so clearly that wasn’t the cause. Since 1998 the world appears to have been cooling. If this doesn’t make sense, maybe you theory is wrong.
Those dinosaurs, gee its been getting colder since they died out, yeah for the last 60- 100 million years or so. In the 1970’s scientist were very concerned with a coming ice age, you can see why they might have been worried about future cooling if you consider this chart.
So there you have it, believe in a world a few thousand years old or billions of years old,
sudden heating caused by people is not likely nor realistic.
This man received serious head injuries as a result of being assaulted by a wanted criminal attempting to steal a hand gun.
Don’t let cognitive dissonance cloud your thinking
Don’t let the Marxist and thugs win the media war or allow the political sacrifice of a man trying to save his own life.
Here at occupy we saw real heavy handed unprovoked use of force by police. We were beaten, robbed, harassed and slandered. When did we resort to looting or violent assaults on the public, never. We know what real injustice looks like and we know a Marxist media hijack when we see one. The tactics are always the same. Ignore and/or suppress facts, manipulate opinion, make illogical, emotionally laden arguments, ad-hominem attacks on opponents and even on victims of serious crimes making a formal complaint.
Officer Wilson will possibly be partly blind in one eye for life, his opponents have always been willingly ‘one eyed’ for some time.
Pants up, Don’t loot.
A good audio presentation here from Jean Twenge, interviewed by Lynne Malcolm.
Interestingly she cited Facebook and reality TV as major sources along with overly doting parents (you’re so special) and easy credit to live out the fantasy life.
She has been saying this for years, even at a conference in Melbourne over 3 years ago.
A study Jean Twenge conducted of 16,000 university students across the US showed 30 per cent were narcissistic in psychological tests, compared with 15 per cent in 1982. ”They are all 18 and 19-year-olds, so this is clearly a generational shift,”
Jean Twenge, professor of psychology at San Diego State University
Of course there are subtle aspects to this the overconfidence of narcissism makes successful stock traders overconfident. Over confidence is good in a rising market but disastrous in a falling market as trader will have fewer fall back positions and be poorly hedged. While traditional investment theory states market generally rise, traditional market theory was developed in an environment where oil supply was expanding one decade to the next. So now there is no great expansion in oil, our specially preened narcissists at the helm of the financial system are a liability rather than a benefit. The only way to expand the financial system is to encourage horde of young narcissists to create debt-money with credit card spending, its no surprise this epidemic has been encouraged.
Facebook; one of the most insidious tools of narcissism was funded by people with links to shadowy connections in the US government. Seriously how could you run a site with hundreds of millions of users without receiving money from somewhere, think about where that somewhere was/is.
This of course bring us to the first Facebook president, Obama. Obama campaigned heavily on Facebook edging out Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination to go head to head with McCain, was it not for Facebook, likely Hillary would have got the nomination. Look at the narcissism overdrive we see in Obama, two Auto biographies before 45.
It all reminds me of a quote I remember from an occupier.
Nick Carson, Oh my god, what a narcissist! He hijacked Occupy Melbourne.
The worst part was that there were a hundred more just like him, waiting around ready to take his place.
At OM a problem we could see that was hard to address was gen Y hipster narcissists, and narcissists in general. The kind of self deluded people living in a self constructed fantasy world who will lie, cheat and steal if it gets them what they want. Narcissists think they are smart and greatly able, but its only because they thrown all of their failures into a memory hole or blame some one else for it. Narcissism the disease that will rot any community, tents or no tents.
Roughly 1 in 3 in Gen Y is clinically a narcissist, that’s very scary considering how much and how fast this delusion has grown in just a generation, what if its 50% in the next generation?
Not only are we living in a post peak oil world, we are living in a post peak sanity world.
