Britain’s maths policy simply doesn’t add up - but neither does overestimating the importance of maths.
As an engineer, mathematics has been an important part of my career but I have always been aware that it is a tool. In the past there have been many attempts to develop a 'philosophy of everything' base on mathematical speculations that took maths into areas it was never designed to go, areas of human thought and enquiry that rightly belong to philosophers. This talk of mathematicians being creative jarrs with me somewhat, inventors, engineers, designers are creative. Mathematics is just part of our tool kit.
Europe's Bureaucratic Elite Plan More Stitch Ups To Steal E U Member Sovereign Powers.
The Authoritarian Left And The Threat To Personal Liberty
Good grief, it would be nice to report something funny, but again today we have to deal with the way the corporate - financial elite and their lackeys are tightening the thumbscrews as they seize ever more control of the minutiae of our lives. We are spied on, electronically tracked, nudged into transferring our private lives to digital environments where privacy cannot exist, medicated, and generally shat on in everything we do.
Ian reflects on his political position, has he realy moved from near anarchist left to reactionary right on the political spectrum, or have authoritarians hijacked the language of liberal and libertarian philosophy and perverted it to serve a neo fascist, big government agenda?
Mass Immigration Marginalises White Working Class Says Soros Think Tank
While the increasingly out of touch politicians of the main political parties, Conservative, Labour and the Liberal Democrats continue their idiotic mantra that mass immigration from from backward nation will coure our country's economic and social ills, it seems even those detached intellectuals who hold sinecures on 'think tanks' are getting the message. Mass migration is a recipe for trouble.
The First humans From Australia Not Africa?
Weez Allz From Africa? Sorry But Weez Isn't - another discovery throws doubt on the established narrative of human history. It would be no surprise to find the version of history told by academics and schoolteacher is wrong, but in fact we simply can't say. Given the movements of the eath's crust over millions of years, the first humans could easily be at the bottom of the ocean. All we know for certain is nothing can be proved for certain. here's the case for Australia.
How We Create Reality - Part 1
We are often told by hippyish types we all live in our own reality. There's some truth in that but only a little, while our minds create a world from the information gathered by our senses (in some ways similar the how your computer builds an image of text and graphics on your screen), the worlds we create from the same data are similar enough, yet subtly different enough to suggest there is something more at work than a simple bilological computer
Transhumanism: The Elite Total Control Agenda
Robot lovers, indestrictible soldiers with no mercy or compassion, everlasting life for beings that are part human, part machine, genetically modified humans with supernatural strength and endurance competing in future 'hungrer Games' style Olympic tournaments: the plot of some dystopian novel? No, actual items in the elite's agenda for total control
A Unified Theory of Evolution – How Karma & Reincarnation Complete Darwinism & Intelligent Design - Weird science
Supporters of Big bang and Evolution and the people who believe in The Creation as described in The Bible, or perhaps in Intelligent Design could ner find common ground could they? It would be too much to expect followers of Isaac Newton't materialism and the determinist philosophy closely linked to it to suddenly start agreing, but many scientific researchers whose work takes them to the outer limits of human knowledge are exploring very interesting territory.
Why Do Those On The Political Left Assume They Have A Monopoly On Goodness And Truth
Political philosophy: As politics and society become more binary and polarise so that according to a self sppoined elite there are only two possible points of view on any issue, public debate is stifled and the polarised left and right end up attacking the other's right to free speech. It has nothing to do with liberal democracy
Is Biocentrism The Theory Of Everything And Does It Prove There Is Life After death - Weird science
Newtonian materialism and determinism, the orthodox creed of The Church of Scientism, is obviously as wrong scientifically as the idea that God created the universe in seven days arounf 6,000 years ago. While religious metaphor is perfectly acceptable to me, when I question the dogma of science, the science worshippers shout heretic and start a medieval witch hunt. Yet thee are many scientifically and logically sound ideas that offer better answers than determinism.
The Mummers: The Controlling system And The Illusion Of Freedom
We live in a world of deception, where truth is an ephemeral thing, slippery as an eel and shadowy as a spectre. What we are expercted to perceive as reality is just spin and misinformation designed to ensure the elite maintain their control. There's eff all you can do just get on with your life, say the shills for big government and authoritarianism. But are we really nothing more than slaves of the system?
Neuroscience Is Wrong. Human consciousness Did Not Spontaneously Occur Because Our Brains Got Big
One of the most obviously bogus of the new pseudo science disciplines in neuroscience. Not neurology, that is study of the brain - neuroscience is the study and subjective interpreatation of statistics obrained from electronically scanning the brain. So can these scientists really read your thoughts as they claim. Wel in a word, NO and anyone who tells you otherwise is having a laugh.
Big Bang, The Cosmos, The Meaning Of Life And You
Scientists are claiming another breakthrough in our understanding of the uiverse. As usual they have found nothing, when science wanders into the territory of philosophy what is usually discovered (apart from being exactly whast the research project hoped to discover, is just a different subjective interpreatation of data to all the previous ones.
Lies, Damned Lies and ... umm... Those Other Things ... oh yeah, statistics.
Were I able to muster the kind of blind faith Mr. Chivers and other "science" nerds place in statistics I would invest it in one of the traditional religions and at least be able to convince myself there is a chance of being resurrected into the life eternal. As it is, unlike Science fans who proclaim their atheism but have a zealots faith in science, I am a true sceptic...
Children Given Chemical Cosh For Fictitious Disease
Critics of the Ritalin disaster which saw many lived ruined by the prescription of 'bonkers' drug Ritalin for "ADHD" are now getting support from an unexpected quarter. The German weekly Der Spiegel quoted in its cover story on 2 February 2012 the US American psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, born in 1922 as the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, who was the “scientific father of ADHD” and who said at...
Looming Health Crisis: Wireless Technology and the Toxification of America
As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. A major health crisis looms that is only hastened through the extensive deployment of “smart grid” technology.

Anarchy In The UK And Elsewhere
The occupy movement are not anarchists. Rioters and protestors of the modern left are not anarchists. Such people have allowed themselves to become dependent on government, they could no more live without the sheltering authority than a tree could live without water. Real anarchy is a well thought out political philosophy though like most (all) political philosophies it looks good on paper but in it pure form is hopelessly impractical.
Black Hat Biotech Beyond The Law (Black Hat part 2)
Science has for two hundred years dealt with the mystery of human consciousness by conflating the mind with the brain. In spite of a growing hill of evidence that the two are very different things and…
In the first part of Black Hat Biotech I reported on how a single corporation are close to establishing a monopoly as supplier of seed for the world's staple food crops.Now we look at how that same corporation either by buying political influence or other, less ethical means (if you know what I mean) has come close to ...
The Grand Illusion Of Self And The Key To Slowing The Ageing Process?

Obama's Dr. Evil Presidency OKs Biological Warfare Research Using Human Babies
This shocking article embedded here from Nature News shows how deeply corrupt and morally deficienty the Obama Adminidtration truly is. OKing experiments on American babies for a program that can only be aimed at handing more taxpayers money to Big Pharma is extreme even for the crack smoking, rent - boy fucking President of the New World Order's puppet regime.

We Simply Can't Afford To Pretend We Can Make Severely Disabled People Equal
A case in court this week challeges the government's decision to cut the Independent Living Fund which allows severely disabled people the 'dignity' of living alone, being cared for by two full time carers and with not of the social opportunities of residential care. Why do lefties want to keep it. Control Freakery maybe?
Has The Global Food Supply Fallen Under The Control Of The Big Food Cartel?
Food prices have rocketed over the past two decades, to the extent that even in nations like Britain and the USA poor people are having to rely on free food banks to stay properly nourished. How did the global food supply chain get in such a state. Well our dear chums The New World Oder are at the bottom of it. And then there are all the usual suspects, greedy banks and corporations, incompetent oliticians, corrupt public servants and the Marxist idiots on the left who obstruct the doing of what needs to be done.
Faceless Corporations That Drive The Global Economy
Some of the most powerful corporations in the world, not the biggest in terms of turnover, profit or numbers of staff employed, but powrful in terms of the amount of control they exercise in global markets, are barely known outside their own industries. You should find out all you can about corporations that affect your life on a daily basis, from the food you eat to your underpants. Here is a good place to start.
Bill Gates Confronted On Vaccine Eugenics Allegations.
Allegations linking the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation vaccine program in Pakistan to a eugenics policy have circulated for some time. The Daily Stirrer could not possibly say if there is any substance to them. But we have noted many times how Information Technology hyperbillionaires seem to be disconnected from the instinctive ethical constraints and self discipline that make most of us aware of the line between social concern and Naziism.
Amazon's Human Robots: More and more people are finding themselves dehumanised in the modern workplace
This is what it's like to work for a company our New World Order appointed leaders tell us points to the future of society. Humans reduced to behaving like androids, conditions not encounteres since before early twentieth century social reform and workers kept in line by desperation. I'm glad my working life is over.
Secret Justice Threatens The Right To A Fair Trial
A move to extend the government's power to order court proceedings to be held in secret and without a jury from only applying to trials affecting national security to anything the government would rather we did not know about threatens the most basic principles of British justice and the right to a fair trial.

Agenda 21: The Path To Global Fascism
Agenda 21, the document published at the Rio +20 climate conference talks in deliberately misleading language of a plan for sustainable development. Don't be fooled by the anodyne bureaucratic jargon, read agenda 21 carefull and it is nothing short of an agenda for global fascism.
The Tyranny Of Moral Relativism
Moral relativism, the sdandard position of the politically correct left, is leading to the breakdown of civilised society in the west. How do we stop the decay when we are not allowed to criticize the Marxist, kleptocratic policies of left wing politicians, the scientific fraud of global warming, or the sheer infantile idiocy of same sex marriage
Prominent American Scientists Call For Global Dictatorship Under UN Rule 'To Save The Planet'
When a scientific dictatorship was first mooted over a century ago the great obstacle to "going beyond existing permissions" as supporters of global government coyly put it, in imposing authoritarian laws withourt having to seek the consent of voters was seen as the rights and freedoms enshrined in the US constitution.
When Lefties Tell You They Are Liberals Look For The Nazi In The Closet
The left have always been quick to shout Nazi whenever a conservative or libertarian was getting the better of the argument. but socialism is the parent of fascism and the authoritarianism of modern liberals and 'proressives'is far closer to the politics of Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and Mao Tse Tung than either Benjamin Disraeli or Margaret Thatcher ever were.

World Economic Forum Calls For $14 trillion program to make the global economy greener...
The World Economic Forum, another jolly for smooth faced elitists, meets in Davos, the most expensive and exclusive of Alpine Ski resorts this week to plan the world's economic future.

The Intellectual Elite Truly Despise People They Pretend To Care About
Modern left wing intellectuals publicly indulge in wailing and gnashing of teeth about poverty, inequality and the plight of the poor. Ironically when the left is in power the poor seem to get poorer and are hardest hot by taxes aimed at redistributing wealth while the wealthy elite become fore firmly embedded in positions of power.Read about how this happens, why the intellectuals find it serves their interests to keep the poor down and the ignorant in darkness.
The United Nations Caused A Cholera Epidemic In Haiti, Then Covered It Up

The Lying Fact Checkers, The Dishonesty Of Scientists andThe Lying Fact Checkers, The Dishonesty Of Scientists, Liberals
One of the deceptions used by Barack Hussein Obama's campaign team to discredit their opponents in the 2012 election was the use of "fact checkers" to discredit everything Republicans said. but fact checking the fact checkers and their "scientific analysis" of the Republican campaign. only shows that the "scientists" are nothing but a bunch of politically partisan liars
Some Scary Un-Censored Truths
A verbal assault on the hypocrisy and double standards of the conservative right and "progressive" left in modern society. It's a tad rabid by the usual standards of our writers but is very thought provoking so we decided it was worth including as a guest post.
Aristotle, Obama and the death of Mainstream Media

Is The Brain More Than A Thinking Machine?
The Weird History of Ideas About the Brain has travelled a long way from the earliest studies of human brain biology in ancient Greece to modern though experiments to implant electronic modules and turn us all into obedient droids. The fact is however we really understand little more about how the processes of the bain work than those early biologists did.
Who'll Put The Total In Totalitarian
Much is made by some right wing conservatives of the suggestion that David Cameron is actually a social democrat. While this might not be entirely true, the apparatus of state has continued to grow during his Premiership, possibly as a necessary consequence of having to contend with a major economic recession but probably due to the Coalition's willing sponsorship of bureaucratic empire building. Bailouts and stimuli have failed to restart the economy and ...
The Hubris of Scientists Brings The Inevitable Result
When six Italian scientists were jailed for failing to raise the alarm that an earthquake was imminent thus contributing to the deaths of many people the outrage from the science community was utterly predictable and completely unjusdtified. Why should scientists get special treatment, why should science be placed beyond accountability?
The Agenda: How An International Elite Are Destroying Sovereign Nations

Poverty tycoons who make themselves millionaires from taxpayer-funded foreign aid budgetIn responSe to questions about Britin's overseas aid budget,David Cameron has said at the United Nations that rather than cutting aid to developing nations in these austere times UK taxpayers should be happy it is being increased. Meanwhile with her own millions safely tied up in trusts Hillary Clinton demands global wealth taxes to raise money for helping the disadvantaged.
The Untouchables - Anna Raccoon
We seem to have a permanent section of criminal society that is marked ‘untouchable’, a niche corner where no one is responsible for their actions, where those suitably labelled are accorded automatic victim status regardless of their part in their current imbroglio. Who ‘lives’ in the untouchable niche changes with passing fashions.
Within my lifetime, it started with women. Women could do anything a man could do – so went the mantra. That included criminal ...
The Future Beyond The Thunderdome
In 1981 the movie Mad Max 2, The Road Warrior seemed a far fetched vision of a post apocalypic dystopia. But how far have we travelled towards that vision of social decay and the abandonment of civilised values?
The International Elite's Contempt For National Sovereignty
The UK government's recent threat to storm the Ecuadorian embassy in London and arrest Julian Assange, displays the same degree of contempt for national sovereignty that Western nations have shown repeatedly since the end of the Cold War. But hey, aren't the Russians and Chinese supposed to be the bad guys. What's going on?
George Orwell, Prophet of political correctness, enemy of the Left, Socialist

The Polarisation Of Society: Captive Minds And Intellectual Cowardice

Captive Minds, Conformity and Cowardly IntellectualsOne of the most disturbing things about this era of [politically correct thinking, left wing concensus and multiculturalis is the absence of divrtsity in the opinions of people in academic life, politoics, the media and the professions.
Socialism Creates Poverty And Inequality
The idea that some watered down form of Marxism can relieve poverty while a system based on free enterprise, personal liberty and responsibility and small government can only widen the gap between rich and poor is widely held and completely wrong.
Champagne Socialists, who are they, what progressive or liberal political ideals do they stand for, do these fabled lefties actually exist or are they a modern myth. The Daily Stirrer goes in pursuit of Champagne Socialists
I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.
I Am Not A Socialist For The Same Reasons I Am Not An Creationisn
Sunday morning is a lazy time for those who have no young children and no interest in religion. Every Sunday, in a slot that was for years occupied by a Christian religious program Mrs. T and I like to watch the wider discussion show that now fills that hour as we consume a leisurely breakfast. One thing that strikes me in these discussions is that the secular view is often represented by a "scientist" who labours under the misapprehension that all who participate in worship or do not subscribe to Marxist thinking are creationists.
Every time I see an article here on evolution by Darwinian natural selection, though I might read it I am usually reluctant to comment.

Populist Authoritarianism - The New Politics
Many attempts have been made to find a convenient label for the New Politics. My favourite is Populist Authoritarianism because the technique for obtaining a majority is to say something vague and hard to pin down but difficult to disagree with and then demonise those who ask ...
Food Fascists Spread Fear and Panic About The Obesity Pandemic
In another of our consciousness raising initiatives Greenteeth, the parent company of The Daily Stirrer, Little Nicky Machiavelli and Boggart Blog has created the Golden Orwell Awards. Today we award the Golden Orwells to Doctors, The NHS and the British Medical Association for their services to fascism in bending the truth about the health threats posed by obseity, alcohol and lack of exercise. We suggest the risks are not as great as will be posed by doctors withdrawing threwatment from those who do not obey.
Creativity Must Triumph Over Conformity
Bruce Elkin argues that to save civilisation creativity must triumph over conformity. We must kick our addiction to consumption, rediscover the things that are really important and use the unique abilities of humans to create a society in which fullfillment is the goal rather than wealth and power. In other words we must redefine what we mean by success.
Parenting Classes: A Bad Idea But Consistent With The Globalist Agenda
Describing vouchers for parenting classes in England as a "nanny state" policy is "nonsense", David Cameron has said, defending another nonsensical policy aimed at extending the ability of a Orwellian Big Brother regime to reach into the private lives of citizens and control behaviour. The "parenting" (and who the fuck uses words like "parenting" except neo - Nazi public servants?) classes will be aimed at ...
UN Says Food Is A Human RightIn a gobsmacking example of bureaucratic idiocy and politically correct stupidity a Brussels bureaucrat has said food is a human right and accused prosperous, enlightened Canada of human rights abuse for not ensuring all it's 30 million plus inhabitants get an 'adequate' diet. What planet do these people live on?
How the gay-marriage campaign has unleashed a bureaucratic assault on people's identities
Do gooders, progressives and bleeding hearts hurl hatred at those who question gay mariage. But these politically correct fools have as usual wallowed in their own self righteousness too long without thinking of the social consequences of this law which will devalue mainstream society to set up the gay community as a precious little elite.
News Used To Be Important - Now It's Just Entertainment
People talk about technology, mainly television, cellular telephones and the internet having given us an unprecedented ability to communicate. But have they? OK, we can trade meaningless messages with strangers on the other side of the world, we can join the cacophony of social netwoks where everybody yells at once and nobody listens, or we can sit in isolation, shouting inmto the void. But none of those are communicating. Technology has actually inhibited communication. ...
While Socialist Occupy Protestors Call Punitive Tax On Weath, Socialist Tony Blair Pays 5% Tax
With Harriet Harman's Inequalities Bill having for the first time enshrined the superiority of minorities over the mainstream you might think at last there was some chance of making the elite live by the same rules as the rest of us. No chance as Tony Blair's use of offshotre tax havens and shell companies to blatantly doge tax shows.

Theosophy For Beginners
With orthodox science and mainstream religion having failed to provide the answers to the great questions of life promised by both, people are looking elsewhere. No surprise then the nineteenth century belief Theosophy is attracting renewed interest from those seeking insigh into divine wisdom, the nature of god, moral philosophy and an understanding of our universe
Cameron's Green Conservatism Is Not That New. Cobbett was there 200 years ago.
Nineteenth century radical and social refomer William Cobbett opposed violence but supported the machine wrecking luddites because he took a broad view of the disruption of rural communities and problems caused by use of machine power at the cost of human jobs. Cobbett was a radical conservative in his time but with green leanings. Where would he stand in politics now?
The Coalition Must Not Be Sucked Into The 'Progressive' Left' War On The Family
Since before the 1970s, since before the communists overthrew the Tsar in Russia, since the day Kark Marx condemnede faily life in his Communist Manifesto, the left or 'progressive left' as they now style themselves has been making war on family life and promoting the usurpation of the role of parents by the agencies of the state.
Councils Still Creating Non Jobs
As Coalition ministers strive to find ways of cutting Britain's crippling public sector deficit, Labour councils are still creating 'non - jobs', positions crreated to appease politically correct prejudices, service the vanity of executives and elected officials and buy votes from minoroties. We look at the nature of some non jobs taxpayers are funding ...
Finger Wagging Nanny Points Way To Big Brother and 1984
Few of us hoped for truly great things from the coalition government formed by the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats after we threw out the wretched New Labour poltroons, but we did not expect an extension of the nanny state, more finger wagging authoritarianism and a thought police agenda that would have shocked George Orwell himself from this Big Brother coalition.
The Human Cost Of Our Cheap Fashions
In the west we have lived the good life for many years, taking for granted the cheap clothes and low cost consumer goods we inmport from the poor nations of the third world. There is a hidden human cost of our comforable lifestyles however. Third World workers, clothing workers in particular, are employed under conditions that amount to slavery in everytthing but name. Even so the hand wringing, tree hiuggers of the progressive left are happy to enjoy what's provided by the hardship of those wage-slave workers while lecturing less idealistic people about the evils of Europe's slave trade which ended 200 years ago ...
Will GM Foods Feed The World As Science Says? Probably Not.
The case for geneticaslly modified (GM) food crops looked to be dead in the water but heartened by the fact that American voter's put the New World Order's houseboy in the White House the gm science lobby are evangelising their quasi - religious science again. So will GM cropsd really grow the food that feeds 9 billion people or is gm just another science scam that serves the righ and poiwerrful like global warming.
Quantum Metaphysics or The God Experiments
The noise from militant atheists is becoming unbearable as they scream and shout about superstition and magical thinking. So what if science came up with something that turns upside down everything we thought we knew about the nature of the universe. Well it has, twenty years ago. Quantum entanglements, non - separability, oneness, once it enters the public perception we will suddenly have to see ourselves differently.
The Persecution Of Johnny Ball and The Intolerance Of Warmageddonists
Veteran TV presenter Johnny Ball, whose programmes on science and mathematics enthused many young viewers in a way formal education never can, probably did not realise he was stepping into a lion's den when he voiced his opinion that the mathematics on which the carbon driven global warming case rests are very dodgy. The Climate Science Warmageddonists turned their fury on him as they have on all who challenge the teachings of their doomday cult.
Google and the Surveillance Society
Just how much data are Google gathering on private individuals? And are other internet and hi - tech firms far behind in their efforts to trash our private lives and force us all to live online in full view of the world. This article reports how far the internet has gone in letting fascistic corporations ride roughshod over privacy laws.
Are The Cultural Poles FlippingReligion and Science (which some people have turned into their religion) have failed to provide the certainties, the sense of security, that many people seek. First religious convicion was eroded by science and then faith in science collapsed when it's certainties dod not stand up to the logical tests of the real world. Can existentialims offer a third way or is its acceptance of uncertainty to challenging?
At Last The Left's Politically Correct Agenda Is Being Questioned - We Can Discuss Poverty, Race and Single Patenthood
With Germany's leader Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron both recently declaring multiculturalism dead and many commentators starting to question the Politically Correct orthodoxy on issues like race, sexuality and single parent families are we al last smashing down the barrier that has prevented the sensible policies on many social problems being adopted.
American society is absolutely FUBAR. I was looking at an American site today where the loony left (or liberals as they insist on calling themselves) had beenquick to blame "the gun crazy religious right" and in particular Sarah Palin for the atrocity. When it becan to emerge that the gunman was a crazy, obsessive loner who may have been associated with left wing ...
Liberal? What Does That Mean?
What is a liberal? Is it something to do with the kind of politically correct thinking that obsesses over minority rights while seeking to marginalise mainstream society? Is liberalism an authoritarian system that seeks to impose politically correct left wing ideology on everybody. Or is a liberal, as is argued here, a very respectable political postion whose name has been usurped by people reluctant to acknowledge their inner Nazi.

It this another case of scientists blinding themselves with science and failing to see the very obvious flaws in the plan?
The Growing Problem Of Rising Food Prices
While the warmists rant about carbon and the Church of Scienceology Cult rave about climate science. there are threee real and immediate problems facing us that nobody is talking about. These are overpopulation, water shortage and food price inflation. This article deals with food prices, links at the bottom lead to our posts on population and water scarcity.
Equalities Bill Discriminates Against Everybody Equally
The Equalities Bill, passed by the previous Labour government before they were ejected from power becomes law today. This farrago is typical of the imbecilic mindset of the self righteous hypocrites who style themselves the progressive left. Presented as a law in support of equality in the workplace , in this era of pandemic joblessness and perpetual financial crisis it is nothing but an attack on the businesses that provide the real, wealth producing, revenue generating jobs in the private sector.
Going Halal In Harrow - Going Gay In Rome
As America divides politically again over plans to build a Muslim centre with prayer room (its not a Mosque OK) close to the site of the World Trade Centre destroyed in 2001 by Muslim Terrorists, Britain has a few divisions of its own brewing on a smaller scale of course. One involves Muslims and Halal meat in schools, in the other the gay rights lobby, famed for demanding tolerance, are showing no tolerance towards Roman Catholic religious principles.
Not Proud To Be British
As the war in Afghanistan draws to its inevitable conclusion, a futile stalemate we must again question the conflation of patriotism and balls out politics that drive nations to war. The NATO allies were never going to achieve anything in Afghanistan, the Afghans hate foreigners and the war, Bush's revenge for 9/11 became Obama's war when the new President needed to show America he could be tough on Muslim states.
In his best known poem Wilfred Owen wrote of that charnel house war: “My friend, you would not tell with such high zest / to children ardent for some desperate glory / the old lie, dulce et decorum est / pro patria mori. (it is sweet and seemly to die for one’s country)
The Pursuit Of Mediocrity by fatsally.
SATS test, introduced in 1993, were supposed to meaure a pupil's progress through the education system from junior to senior school and ensure every child was fulfilling their potential. Now we see the government constantly lowering standards in order to ensure enough pupils from each school are reaching government imposed targets.
Oh Brave New World
In common with Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four, forever imprinted on the minds of my generation because of the cover image of a military boot grinding on a human face, Brave New World was a book that changed the way we viewed the world we lived in. In many ways it inspired aspects of the social revolution of the 1960s as people shrugged off the social controls that had imposed such restrictive conventions on western society.
FILTH! The Mary Whitehouse Effect
Advance publicity for “FILTH!” a dramatised version of the Mary Whitehouse story starring Julie Walters and coming (oops, pardon!) to a television near you has predictably aroused (oops, pardon!) the holier-than-thou brigade to start ranting about ... any mention of “FILTH!” in the media tends to make the legions of the narrow minded come over Mary Whitehouse (oops, pardon!).
Gay Minister and The Lib Dem Closet
Strange that the party responsibe for pushing through the law that decriminalised homosexuality should have had three senior MPs in the past decade who preferred to stay in the closet. Or is it? The gay mafia is so active in politics a desire to stay out of the limelight they generate is understandable...
Imposing Orthodoxy By Stealth: Big Brother And Your Shopping Habits
Subtle influences are at work to change the way you shop and thus the way you live. Is this manipulation driven purely by the profit motive or are more sinister motives involved?
The Power Of Positive.
There are many cod philosophies based on positive thinking. But when does positive thinking stop and self delusion start. Are the positive addicts really trying to help with their positive thinking tips or are they really just trying to share their addiction and draw you into their bubble of unreality. Ian R Thorpe bursts the positive thinking bubble...
Epitaph For New Labour.
Several hours before polls close on general election day Ian R Thorpe pre-empts the result by publishing an epitaph for the wretched "New Labour" project which led the once great Labour Party to aandon any pretence of standing for anything except the interests of its leaders and paymaster and the gaining and keeping of power at any price. So arrogant has Labour become, so contemptuous of their working class core vote, the people who put the labour into Labour Party, that they are now he party of wealth and privilege, to the autoritarian right of the Conservatives while the Liberal Democrats are the truly progressive force on the left.
Internet Access As A Human Right?
A survey carried out by the BBC found a majority of people around the world believe internet access should be a basic human right. We suspect a bit of statistical rigging because the majority of people in the world live below the poverty line and probably have more urgent priorities than surfing the net.
Get On Board The Athest Bus
A campaign by british atheists to raise money for a campaign to advertise atheism caused some guffaws, particularly from the non-evangelical wing of the British atheist community. Ad vertising the non - existence of God has about as much relevance as advertising that all soap powders are pretty much the same or that self control is a batter way to keep your weight stable than miracle weight loss products. If people believe in God they will just react scornfully. If they don't believe in God why spend money telling them he/ she/ it does not exist. And if they could not give a flying fuck either way....... well they couldn't give a fuck either way.
Devaluation By Degrees
A Degree used to be epitome of higher education, the indicator of academic excellence rather than vocational skills. With the proliferation of Universities and the Pick - And - Mix nature of many degree courses, this article asks if the University Degree is being devalued and the university courses downgraded to mere further education as the divinding line between academic degree and vocational diploma becomes more blurred. Is this doing a disservice to everybody involved?
Is something sinister going on in our western societies. Whiles races are integrating people seem to have become segregated by age. In an era that sees people living and staying active longer than any previous generation it is bizarre that we throw older generations on the scrapheap earlier than ever before. Are the young really turning away from parents and grandparents in an evolutionary quirk or is there something more sinister behind the trends. We don't have to dig very deep to see that the culprits are those intellectual fascists who spend their lives in Universities dearming up insane theories about how societies should manage themselves but seldom come into contact with reality.
Have We Forgotten How To Be, have we lost the art of just enjoying being alive. Amid all the self improvement and the striving and competing, acquireing and consuming, we do not seem to be able to stop doing and enjoy simply being any more. Click link above for article and menu.
