notes on a morning's reading
 (from lies to war; vicious crimes)

repetitious? often; not too much new and too much bad

publicly funded broadcasters

1. tell us lies

2. now have ads = neoliberalism

3. means not just time wasting but criminal traitors

Comment: public services = for us, by us.

Democracy (of, by, for the people etc) requires an informed electorate; to misinform is an highest-order crime against democracy.

Comment: mostly only delayed, not lost AND ~83% $s go o/s.

Comment: mainly due to Israeli (war) crimes against humanity.

Note the hypocrisy; violence by US/Zs condoned, by others condemned.

In Aus' case, publicly funded broadcasters = AusBC + SBS, over my lifetime, the AusBC has favoured Israel to such an extent that it amounts to lying (commission, omission) = misinforming = criminal treachery.


be reasonable

absolute arguments

fair and sustainable?

never say never (say ~95%)

nothing for nothing = is the price worth it?

both war and economics ignore vital externalities

Comment: means xsCO2cc will not even be slowed, let alone reversed.

workers' grievances vs. shareholders' demands

enlightened covenants

capital vs. labour

people vs. rulers

fair go, ya mug!

refer Fordism

cooperation trumps confrontation

reason vs. force

reason should always win; 'a convincing argument'

when reason doesn't convince, then violence?

wars Palestine to Syria - Q: Who wins?

A: *Not* the attacked ELO/Os.

mass-murdering for spoil

might is *not* right

war = criminal


We the people need a better 'deal' soonest.
