I've figured out the scoop on anonymous

These guys http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_(group) are the perfect establishment argument for an identity driven internet. Every piece of data tracked to a person's fingerprint or door, the web passport.

 

Some of what they do is hilarious, and I recommend that everybody reads http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Main_Page. simply because the satire is that lewd. If…

repost from somebody online

It’s been heaps of fun writing about greedy Guy Hands of private equity firm Terra Firma dragging EMI down with his disastrous purchase of it for $6 billion in 2007 and subsequent attempts to pay off the massive debts the company owes to bankers Citigroup. After losing a court case recently in which Hands had argued he was tricked by Citigroup in to paying too much, it appeared to be only a matter of months before Terra Firma defaulted on its loans and the company was repossessed and sold… Continue

There's always a friendly public face. Whatever the business, they're running it according to utopian ideals, and there are never any problems! Yaaay for propaganda.

edward bernays, back-room mass manipulator.

Edward Bernays is credited with inventing the field of "Public Relations". 

 

Combining the ideas of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Dr. Sigmund Freud, Bernays was one of the first to attempt to manipulate public opinion using the subconscious.



He felt this manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the 'herd instinct' that Trotter had…

GE advertorial starring Ray Gun

The show made the already well-known Reagan, who had appeared in many films as a "second lead" throughout his career, wealthy, due to his part ownership of the show. After eight years as host, Reagan estimated he had visited 135 GE research and manufacturing facilities, and met over a quarter-million people. During that time he would also speak at other forums such as Rotary clubs and Moose lodges, presenting views on economic progress that in form and content were often similar to what he said… Continue

ovid's abyss

Before the universe as we know it arose, the greeks suggested there was the abyss:

 

Rather a rude and indigested mass:

A lifeless lump, unfashion'd, and unfram'd,

Of jarring seeds; and justly Chaos nam'd.

No sun was lighted up, the world to view;

No moon did yet her blunted horns renew:

Nor yet was Earth suspended in the sky,

Nor pois'd, did on her own foundations lye:

Nor seas about the shores their arms had thrown;

But earth, and air,…

Humans are able to detect modulated radio-frequency electromagnetic signals in the microwave range, hearing them as sounds. The perceived source of induced sound is located inside of or directly behind the head of the recipient, regardless of the location of the transmitter.

1000 proverbs

90% of Inspiration is Perspiration

A bad custom is like a good cake, better broken than kept 

A bad excuse is better than none

A bad penny always turns up

A bad workman blames his tools

A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain 

A barking dog never bites

A best friend is like a four leaf…

world bank's first loan

John McCloy selected France to be the first recipient of World Bank aid; two other applications from Poland and Chile were rejected. The loan was for $987 million, half the amount requested and came with strict conditions. Staff from the World Bank monitored the use of the funds, ensuring that the French government would present a balanced budget and give priority of debt repayment to the World Bank over other governments. The United States State Department told the French government that… Continue

future history

In the future what's been going on recently will be not an archaeological dig, but a detective's scene. Huge, sprawling, complicated, riddled with deceit.

 

At the moment, our belief that everything is how we are told it is holds us back from perceiving the true nature of society and the scope of the individuals within it.

 

People are habituated. Sometimes usefully, sometimes not. But always we have the choice to do...

 

... something completely…
