      ie. ..
      "Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday deplored the Russian plan to ship S-300 anti-aircraft systems to Syria, saying that it will allow Syria to fight off an Israeli attack."

  • Rafsanjani's Exclusion from Iran's Presidential Race a Sign of Creeping Totalitarianism
  • "Investigative Journalism is Completely [Screwed]" (Daily Show's John Oliver)
    • > Kronoberger : It is interesting how the free press has been hijacked not by a totalitarian government but by corporate interests

      we need to broaden our definition of "government". Government is that which has power to constrain our freedom of action or thought.

      In total, corporate power is a more significant form of government than "elected" government. They govern directly by various forms of direct punishments and constraints, or indirectly by perverted influence upon "elected" government. Corporations are essentially mafia forms of government.

  • The Generals try to stop an Iran War
    • > ... And why do I have little hope for our species? Gee, could it have something to do with the nature of our behaviors ...

      personally, i feel reluctant to blame the entirety of humanity for that ability of psychopaths to manipulate and control corporate and national forces.

    • > Obama take a page out of Richard Nixon’s book and begin direct, high-level but secret discussions with Iran as Nixon did with China, asking three crucial questions: “What does Iran want, what do we want and what do we both want?”

      that's crazy .. that's like threatening to kick someone's door down and kill everyone inside, but pausing to ask them “What do You want, what do we want and what do we both want?”
