Weaving Reality II: Picking up the rhythm

The WeaveMothers rustled. Rustled? It's as good a word as any to describe their collective motion. A ripple of the fabric was often necessary since the units seemed predisposed to perform the same task over and over and over again.

Uncertainty happens. At least it is supposed to happen. One can't be certain that it will.

Humanitarianism is Geopolitical Rohypnol: Mali

In case you didn't know, there is serious shit going down in Mali. In case you did know, all the information that's delivered to your door about it serves the interests of the Western Empire, not the people of Mali. Time for the latest chapter on how Western humanitarianism is being used to rape the world.

Mali is the latest subject of Western imperial ogling, and all of Obama's international neoliberal fraternity brothers are taking their turn explaining why Mali is just asking for some forcible intervention.

More Hostage taking over the BCA

"Look at your national budget."

That was the answer given to a question that was asked of former Chilean political prisoner Rev. Ulises Torres. The question was...

"When do you know if you have a military government?"

No matter reports to the contrary once again the MIC and governmental figures are telling tales of woe if the BCA (Budget Control Act of 2011) is allowed to take effect. In his new article Dr. Joseph Gerson nails it that what we need is an honest conversation of what's needed to turn our economy around and not "hair on fire" rhetoric from people who's livelihoods depend on feeding at the taxpayers teat.

Kick the Habit: Fund Our Communities, Not War

Like a crack addict reaching for the next hit, unable to envision or take steps toward a regimen of health, too many of our political leaders are embracing their roles as hostages of what President Eisenhower termed the military-industrial complex.

It get's better down there.

Curtailing speech and its enablers

As we all know Saudi Arabia is one of the worst nations in the world when it comes to freedom of expression. Their draconian laws are now being expanded and it may be a bit surprising who is working with them and others such as Pakistan to develop international standards for blasphemy prosecutions.

Saudi Arabia Moves Toward Expansion of Blasphemy Law To Cover Social Networks and Blogs

The West has steadily yielded to the demands of religious groups that free speech must be curtailed in the name of faith. At the same time, West governmental and religious leaders have denounced agnostics and atheists as one of the greatest threats facing the West

There's more.

Weaving Reality

The Weavemothers were alternately bemused and perplexed. Weaving spacetime is a daunting task. But the die had been cast.

Those self-programmable units would have to be the answer. At least for now, the spot weaving of the tapestry would have to rely on them. If only they didn't have the bugs that caused them to sometimes go round and round in circles, sometimes get lost in mazes of amazing complexity, and too often fail to cooperate with each other in their common task.

That Was the Week That Was: Sunday Evening Open Thread

This was a week of travel, illness, good news, bad news, humor, annoyance, aggravation, distractions, and drama. Lots and lots and lots of drama.

And that was just me.

There is so much going on in the world.

There's unrest in Europe - lots of that going on. There's a movement for Scottish independence from Britain.

Anti-Capitalist Meet Up: Let's Talk 'Decolonization' by Unaspencer

[Reposted From Daily Kos with the author's permission.]

I write today to, hopefully, start a dialogue and ongoing series about the concept of decolonization. I'm fairly new to the term. Some of the concepts have been in me for a while, but I did not have connection to a philosophy or political movement, much less a name. So, I'll share my entry point and early thoughts about decolonization. I invite you to share yours.
