Randolph Bourne, a hundred years ago, wrote an essay with these words about war:


“It automatically sets in motion throughout society those irresistible forces for uniformity, for passionate cooperation with the Government in coercing into obedience the minority groups and individuals which lack the larger herd sense… Other values such as artistic creation, knowledge, reason, beauty, the enhancement of life, are instantly and almost unanimously sacrificed…”


Benjamin Franklin understood this collective panic, when he said that people who prefer security to liberty deserve neither.

There have been more toddlers killed by toddlers with guns than there have been American adults killed by terrorists in this fading calendar year. The average age of the children who were killed by guns since Sandy Hook is six years old.

In the immortal word of Frederick Douglas, "Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." 

                                        

1169 hacker enemy of the state
The above quote from renowned abolitionist Frederick Douglas was included in the court statement READ by Hacktivist JEREMY HAMMOND
on Friday after being sentenced to 10 years in Federal Prison. He
was convicted of hacking into the computer data of the civilian security firm Stratfor . Stratfor does work for the Dept. of Defense and the Pentagon, as well as corporations like Dow Chemical.
















CHRIS HEDGES SPEAKS ON THE TREMENDOUSLY IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTIONS OF JEREMY HAMMOND, (AS WELL AS CHELSEA MANNING AND EDWARD SNOWDEN) TO OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE THREATS AGAINST OUR DEMOCRACY:

Now, this was quite a significant dump, because it illustrated two or three very chilling things about the security and surveillance state, first of all that there was no division between corporate spying and government spying. It was seamless, including the same people going back and forth. It was from that dump that we realized the extent to which the Occupy movement was being spied upon and infiltrated and monitored and followed. And we also found from those email exchanges that there was a concerted attempt on the part of security officials, both inside the government and within the private security contracting agency, to link, falsely, nonviolent dissident groups with terrorist groups so that they could apply terrorism laws against these groups.

The above paragraph was quoted verbatim from an interview given by Chris Hedges on The Real News Network. Watch the Interview HERE:

    After receiving positive feedback on the last Dhani Harrison video I thought I'd send the 2nd one with a Halloween type theme. Again, uncanny how much he sounds like his Father Beatle George Harrison.
