All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream…

In the news

Intolerant of intolerance.

I’ve been meaning to write things down about the problem I have with stupid people even since the incidents in Paris over Charlie Hebdo cartoons.

I’m not a huge fan of intolerance, my argument is that all people should express themselves regardless of religion and culture, without fear of reprisals.

One of the points about having such a great society filled with lots of different people from all walks of life, especially in the West, is that we all can get together to discuss ideas and live amongst ourselves peacefully. We may not agree on a lot of things but as people we have more common with each other than we realise.

For the main part this happens albiet on the surface. I’d argue that different cultures have a natural tendency to stick together, either because of familial ties, ethnic or religious philosophy.

Having lots of different groups of people together has a tendency to create an atmosphere of tribalism, society within society… It would be lovely if the lines were blurred that you’d barely notice, but we have divisions that naturally occur areas where only white working class live,  or middle class…or Asian or upper class the list goes on and on… and yet there is some blurring of the lines… but for the main part things tend to gravitate around a central point where individuals feel safer in their own groups, either geographically or just in a general way.

We have a problem at work with one of our colleagues who just happens to be Muslim. He is a very passionate person and becomes animated when speaking about Islam, which he is entitled to do so… afterall its what he belives in.

Now the rest of the staff are all non Muslims and for the main part are non religious, to boot. I strongly believe that all people regardless of race, religion and culture be allowed to express his or her way of life so long as they’re not preaching their beliefs on to other people who don’t want to be preached at.

Each to their own…

But…

I don’t expect to come into work and listen to him telling me and other people that 12 people (in Paris) deserve to die because they just so happen to of taken the piss out of a religious figure, and that the police officer got shot at point blank range got shot (who was Muslim) was only helping the ‘infidels’ (I’m quoting my Mulsim colleagues words here I’m really not making this up) – My problem is not his culture its not his religion… its his stupidity thats the problem… His inability to see that if you become intolerant you become the enemy yourself. He cannot see that, and he does his people his culture and religion a disservice.

I’m not suggesting its a fine thing to do… satirical or otherwise to poke fun of religion if it offends someone… but I will not abide his intolerance, his outrage is enough that he feels murder is justified.

Since when is murder justified for any reason. The man is stupid.

At the End of the Day

Another re-blogged post from the slog. It’s a funny reality to live in when one really doesn’t trust ones own country or the west… I concur…

The Slog.

Fatso di Barosso di Commissione Europeanne proudly gushed this afternoon that we The People of the EU are to lend €11bn to Ukraine.

Ukraine is not an EU member State. So can somebody real please to an humble Slog (a) where he gets off lending 11 billion notes of an already bankrupt currency to a country outside “our” borders (b) whyTF anyone in the West really believes we have the remotest right to interfere in the cultural meltdown of a country way beyond our sphere of influence, and (c) why Vladimir Putin has no right to a say in a country where the majority of people speak Russian?

I am no Putin apologist: the bloke is KGB down to his boots. But he has far more right to a say in Ukrainian affairs than any of us. Which is why I LOL when David Cameron tweets to say, ‘I’ve been…

ED MILIBAND, WESTMINSTER, & THE PAEDOPHILE ISSUE: A SUCCINCT VERDICT.

Exactly we need to get out there and mobilise, instead of moaning about stuff… good analysis from the Slog as always.

ZERO The time has come at last for even the more smug and sleepy among us to get real. This is the situation we have:

1. A gentleman with a posh name, a senior and shady role on Tory affairs (and no doubt the wearer of nice shoes) is in charge of seeking out naughty paedos – and has now been accused of being one of their number.

2. The Prime Minister and his staff covered up the issue until caught out.

3. The Prime Minister’s Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is bankrolled by a John Lewis who was at a key time Chairman of the Groucho Club. At that time, it was hosting a PIE-style website and taking illegal pictures of its clients snorting coke.

4. Alistair McAlpine successfully sued the backside off various people for being wrongly outed as a paedophile, but kept secret his certain knowledge about Jimmie McAlpine…

THE PAEDOFILE – Top Tory adviser arrest spells it out: one law for the innocent until proven guilty….another for the guilty until proven innocent.

You cannot make this shit up… I remember thinking back when the censorship filter was announced that it was a cover so the dirty bastards in power could all get away with kiddie porn. Now I’m not pointing fingers at all at the Conservatives, or people they like to do business with, but got damn I knew as much…

The Slog.

           

rock1Patrick Rock (left) the top adviser to David Cameron facing child abuse images allegations, was in fact arrested three weeks ago.

In a mealy-mouthed exchange today, a Downing Street spokesman said, “Number 10 immediately referred this to the National Crime Agency. Of course, this is all directly linked to a police investigation and I don’t think we would proactively comment on that… I think that when… I think it is no surprise that we would not comment proactively on police investigations…When a question was put to us, we responded, obviously subject to the constraints of there being an ongoing police investigation.”

What a complete load of disingenuous bollocks. Does anyone remember this degree of formality being applied to the arrest of television celebs and BBC radio DJs?

As Call Me Dave himself might say, let us be clear about this: Patrick Rock…

Thinking about this article… I wonder how some of these app development companies are funded…and whether or not foreign countries actively fund them in order to help the citizens of a particular country have the tools they need to revolt?

Its software warfare…

It’s not something I’ve thought about before now, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

I understand Zello was founded in 2011 in Austin, Texas.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
