Why Orwell Matters

Hellbound and Down

Most people think that George Orwell was writing about, and against, totalitarianism – especially when they encounter him through the prism of his great dystopian novel,Nineteen Eighty-Four.

This view of Orwell is not wrong, but it can miss something. For Orwell was concerned above all about the particular threat posed by totalitarianism to words and language. He was concerned about the threat it posed to our ability to think and speak freely and truthfully. About the threat it posed to our freedom.

He saw, clearly and vividly, that to lose control of words is to lose control of meaning.That is what frightened him about the totalitarianism of Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia – these regimes wanted to control the very linguistic substance of thought itself.

And that is why Orwell continues to speak to us so powerfully today. Because words, language and meaning are under threat once…

Desultory Heroics

The depth of anti-humanist sentiment related by Douglas Rushkoff in his latest book, Survival of the Richest, is harrowing and illuminating.

By Chris Barsanti

Source: PopMatters

Some things can be horrifying even if unsurprising. One such moment is the opening anecdote inDouglas Rushkoff’sSurvival of the Richest: Escape Fantasies of the Tech Billionaires. In 2017, Rushkoff was paid an exorbitant fee to travel to a remote high-end resort where (he thought) he would do his usual thing: Talk about the future to investment bankers looking for a way to game the next trend.

What happened was far stranger. Rather than give a speech, Rushkoff sat at a conference room table with five fantastically rich guys from “the upper echelon of the tech investing and hedge fund world” and tried to answer their questions about how they could survive the impending apocalypse.

The scene is comical, in…

“The past is preserved only in darkness, the future is not raised to the level of an image, as something which can be anticipated. It is the symbolic expression which first creates the possibility of looking backward and looking forward… What occurred in the past, now separated out from the totality of representations, no longer passes away, once the sounds of language have placed their seals on it and given it a certain stamp.”

Archaeologists have discovered what they believe could be the earliest known writing. A 12,000-year-old pictograph was found within the ancient settlement of Gobeklitepe in southeast Anatolia, Turkey.

The pictograph, chiseled into an obelisk, reportedly depicts a traditional sky burial whereby bodies are left outdoors to be picked apart by scavengers.

Penlink – A small Nebraska company is helping law enforcement around the world spy on users of Google, Facebook and other tech giants

TheIdea – The Innovation Agency

A small Nebraska company is helping law enforcement around the world spy on users of Google, Facebook and other tech giants. A secretly recorded presentation to police reveals how deeply embedded in the U.S. surveillance machine PenLink has become.

PenLink might be the most pervasive wiretapper you’ve never heard of.

It’s probably best known, if it’s known at all, for its work helping convict Scott Peterson, who murdered his wife Laci and their unborn son in a case that fomented a tabloid frenzy in the early 2000s.

Common Types of Social Engineering Attacks – by Kaiti Norton July 29, 2021


Calculus of Decay

Original Article: Here

Social engineering is a common technique that cybercriminals use to lure their victims into a false sense of security. Usually, social engineering involves impersonation, deception, and psychological manipulation that ultimately creates an environment where a victim feels either comfortable or pressured to share sensitive information or perform a specific action. As social engineering tactics become more advanced, it’s important to know how to identify them in the context of cybersecurity.

Social engineering in cybersecurity attacks:

Social engineering can manifest itself across a wide range of cybersecurity attacks:

  • Phishing
  • Smishing
  • Vishing
  • Whaling
  • Pharming
  • Baiting
  • Pretexting
  • Scareware
  • Deepfakes

Phishing is a broad category of social engineering attacks that specifically target most businesses’ primary mode of communication: email. These types of attacks usually involve spoofed emails that attempt to impersonate a legitimate sender and convince the recipient to divulge confidential information or click a link or attachment that’s…

Modern Law Enforcement is Dangerous

The Tactical Hermit

When you read the background on this story it is obvious that these two cops slept through their Situational Awareness training at the academy otherwise they might have noticed they parked on a friggin railroad track.

This reminded of the article The Return of the Gunslinger where a Federal Judge stated in no uncertain terms that Law Enforcement has no Constitutional Basis to Protect citizens except those who are “in Custody.”

“Neither the Constitution, nor state law, impose a general duty upon police officers or other governmental officials to protect individual persons from harm — even when they know the harm will occur,” said Darren L. Hutchinson, a professor and associate dean at the University of Florida School of Law. “Police can watch someone attack you, refuse to intervene and not violate the Constitution. The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the government has only a duty to protect persons…

Another of Seax, always have said, more eyes need to see

The Serpent's Loft

Let me tell you something. Man was meant to dream. There is something sinister about the cultural cynicism and scepticism which has been sublimated and absorbed by the peoples of the world, pointedly, by the People of the West.

More than that, there is something dreadfully wrong with the calm acceptance with which cynicism, being the death of innocence, is endured. There is the idea that dreams are the purview of children. They are, and as surely as Baldur brought joy to the Elder Gods, so too does every man contain the memories of youth. What, pray tell, is wrong with this?

A marked difference between the men of yesteryear who men in my camp admire and those less than sterling role models is that our ancient men were sustained ideologically by the dreams they had. For a long time there was no vast system which robbed them of dreams…

Hunter Biden Levels Up in Debauchery, Media Says (Video)

Digital Empire

Videos from the laptop of the US president’s son obtained by the Daily Mail show months of sex and drugs in Malibu

US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter slides naked down a waterslide, has copious group sex with prostitutes, dances around naked, and inhales prodigious amounts of drugs in a set of videos and photos published by the Daily Mail on Thursday, extracted from the younger Biden’s laptop.

Biden strips, snorts, and skinny-dips his way through a series of $4,000-plus nightly rentals in Malibu in September and October 2018 in the included photos and videos, partying hard while his father was preparing to run for president. In addition to a rotating cast of hookers, the younger Biden invites a friend of his ex-lover (and former sister-in-law) Hallie Biden and two unknown men to join the bacchanalia, the Daily Mail reports.

In the videos, he is rarely seen clothed, though he…

World War III has already begun. You simply aren’t being told this because your government and dishonest media outlets are dedicated to keeping you in the dark. After all, they want to use the remaining time to stockpile food, ammunition, medical supplies, and precious metals for themselves, and this can only be accomplished by withholding the truth about the situation for as long as possible.

Re-embedding the economy to rethink (sustainable) development

Good essay

Developing Economics

‘On ne développe pas ; on se développe.’

This famous sentence from Joseph Ki-Zerbo could be translated as ‘we do not enforce development; we develop ourselves.’ However, development paradigms have been largely influenced by external views, mainly those of Western countries. “Development” is considered as a moral concept. Many people around the world suffer and don’t have access to welfare programmes that are fundamental to strive, hence the need for development, through the improvement in terms of basic needs and democratic institutions. However, development as a concept is far from having a universal definition, on how to develop and the ultimate goals of this development. Development paradigms are fundamentally linked to ideologies. In particular, the connection between the economics discipline and the dominant development paradigm is deep. Thus, rethinking development also calls for rethinking the assumptions in the economics discipline. In this blog, I summarize the main ideas of a recent…

President Biden’s “Fascism” Smear

PA Pundits - International

By Paul Driessen ~

President Biden claims millions of Republican voters have embraced “semi-fascism.” They “threaten not just our personal rights and economic security, but our very democracy, the very foundation of our republic,” in a “battle for the soul of our nation.”

This is hardly the “moderate” way to “unite” America. But Mr. Biden isn’t alone. Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison says the Republican Party has “become a party of fascism and fear.” Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) rants that Republican “fascists” are trying “to overthrow the government.” Their media allies echo and amplify the accusations.

Do they know what “fascism” means? Have they looked in a mirror, or at their own history and agenda?

Merriam-Webster defines fascism as “centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

The documentary shows the development of illegal cybernetics while it includes entirely mainstream sources.

The film refer to facts from Swedish government investigations and the U.S. Department of Health, while below you can find some facts from the United States Patent Office.

And the film shows the weaponization of psychiatry, as false diagnoses are given by the medical establishment, which is controlled by the big pharmaceutical companies, the government, and the media.

AMERIKA: ‘America’s Open Wound’, The CIA Is Not Your Friend – By Edward Snowden


Source –
– “…For 75 years, the American people have been unable to bend the CIA to fit the law, and so the law has been bent to fit the CIA. As Biden stood on the crimson stage, at the site where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were debated and adopted, his words rang out like the cry of a cracked-to-hell Liberty Bell: “What’s happening in our country is not normal – If only that were true”

America’s Open Wound

The CIA is not your friend

Edward Snowden

“Better that right counsels be known to enemies than that the evil secrets of tyrants should be concealed from the citizens. They who can treat secretly of the affairs of a nation have it absolutely under their authority; and as they plot against the enemy in time of war, so do they against the citizens in time of peace.”

Record Breaking Eviction Rates Result from High Rent, Mortgages and Cost of Living

If food prices haven’t been high enough, now, thanks to Bidinflation, the price to eat is almost 12% over the last year, and the largest annual increase since May 1979.

Specifically, restaurant menu prices increased 8.2%, and grocery prices surged 13.8%.

Inflation, which reached a four-decade high earlier in 2022, increased far more than economists and corporate media told us it would be as summer came to an end. Consumer prices continue to rise according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Although the Biden Administration pat themselves on the back for gas prices, since they have been in office these costs have for the most part, increased and are a chief contributor to inflation for most of the year.

Germany’s Move to Become a Military Power Will Be Suicide Pill both for Berlin and EU

Scholz and his colleagues are worried not about Putin winning. They are worried about the unthinkable. Putin losing.

The question of Germany’s role in a militarized Europe won’t go away. It keeps popping up or returning like a bad rash assisted by the posse of geopolitical commentators who can see what many everyday folk cannot: Germany returning to its once military super power roots.

Such an idea of Germany having a powerful military has been thwarted for decades, given the huge groundswell of opinion in the country against repeating the woes of history which torment the older generations to this day who are troubled not so much by the horror of the Third Reich but more by defeats on the battlefield which left scars to this day which…

Soaring Fuel Prices: An Impetus to EV sales

Economics Declassified

By Parth Chhajed | Edited by Atiyah Krishnan

Globally, oil prices have been looked at as a very important economic growth indicator.

It is one of the key elements which affects the prices of more or less every commodity in the market. A rise in oil prices brings inflationary pressure on the economy, especially in a country like India where we are predominantly dependent on imports for our oil supply.

The rise in oil prices also plays a crucial role in the automobile industry. It takes a big toll on the margins of the auto company as it affects the type of vehicles demanded by the customers and the way the vehicles are designed. The low responsiveness or “inelasticity” of both supply and demand to price fluctuations in the short run is intrinsically linked to the volatility of oil prices. In the near future, the capacity for oil production and…

This Explains Why Leftists Hate Free Speech


“Hypocrites get offended by the truth.”

― Jess C. Scott, Bad Romance: Seven Deadly Sins Anthology

Just because someone says something does not make it true, obviously.

But controversial speech often involves a statement of fact that many are afraid to say, because of censorship, intimidation or shaming by others.

When you’re afraid of truth, you tend to foster the violation of free speech. Leftists are, of course, major hypocrites. When they perceive their own speech silenced, they are the first and loudest to scream for their rights.

But those same leftists are the most comprehensive and vicious advocates of the violation of another’s free speech.

Go figure.

Shoigu: Russia at War With Collective West Rather Than Ukraine

Both Russian president Vladimir Putin and Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu delivered speeches on Wednesday in the wake of announcements by the Donbass Republics as well as the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions that they are planning to hold votes on joining Russia on September 23-27.

In his TV address on Wednesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Russia was at war with the collective West rather than Ukraine.

“In reality, we are fighting the collective West plus NATO. When we speak about it, we mean not only the weapons being supplied [to Kiev] in huge batches, but also about systems of communication and information processing systems,” Shoigu said.

The Western states as well as NATO, he said, are supplying Kiev with “huge” amounts of weapons.

Gardens Are Growing Due to Food Shortage

Home gardens became trendy again in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic led to societal upheaval. At the time, seed suppliers were overwhelmed by the unprecedented demand1 of people looking to take control of one of the most basic forms of self-preservation — growing your own food.

It’s estimated that more than 20 million Americans planted a vegetable garden for the first time during the pandemic,2 and with continued threats of food shortages looming, the demand for home gardens only continues to grow. But the truth is, gardening during times of crisis is nothing new.

On Michael Hudson’s ‘SuperImperialism’ & Debt Jubilee Propositions

Jack Rasmus

There is much that Michael Hudson and I agree on, especially with regard to the growing economic and political influence of finance capital in the last half century. We differ, however, in our analyses of how the growing global weight of finance capital destabilizes the global capitalist economy (and especially USA & UK variants) as well as its role in the US economic empire–that is, imperialism.

Another difference between Hudson and I is Hudson sees debt as the centerpiece and lynchpin to reform of the current capitalist economic system. He thus calls for a ‘debt jubilee’ in which by a political-legal action debt is expunged from the capitalist system. In my view, however, a debt jubilee is politically naive call for reform. Capital cannot function without debt, and as it financializes it necessarily creates more debt to function. To therefore call for a ‘jubilee’ in which debt is expunged requires…

In a 31-page document dubbed a Humanitarian Policy, the Kremlin has made it official doctrine to “protect, safeguard and advance the traditions and ideals of the Russian World“.

Since 1991, Russian Diplomacy has been a confused one. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has made it more complex. In the current situation, President Putin’s announcement can be considered as a message of creating a new axis. Since the Soviet days, the Kremlin has been maintaining cordial ties with India. Later, Russia became a friend of China. However, India and China have been involved in a border crisis for the last six decades. At the same time, India depends on Russia for defence…
