"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate"

Measles is Back . ..Thanks to the Church

 

 Measles, an often deadly disease which the world had almost eradicated, is back.

National headlines focused on a Texas fundamentalist church which preached that faith, rather than childhood vaccination, was the way to proceed, a prescription which has, sadly, led to a cluster of sick parishioners. The victims are primarily children who were not vaccinated, after their parents heard sermons against it.

 

RADI.MS The media you were waiting for will soon be born. A new world from integral revolution

 A new media is in the making. Springing from a spirit of rebellion, from everywhere, anywhere and nowhere. A quality media, because being an activist does not mean giving up being a journalist. An independent media, because being a journalist does not mean giving up being a revolutionary. A creative and surprising media, because being reliable does not mean being boring.

"War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group know what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket."
-- Major General Smedley Butler USMC, 1933

"We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late."

Declaring Syria Regime Illegitimate Sends Strong Human Rights Message and Exposes Lenders

Over the last year, a religious antipoverty organization has met with U.S. Treasury and White House officials to encourage them to declare the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad an illegitimate government. This action would impose restrictions on lending to Syria that supports its military or the needs of the Assad regime. When governments or financial institutions make this declaration it lets lenders know that if they lend to Syria they may not receive a return on their investment. Types of lending and financing that could be affected are arms contracts with Russia and oil investment from Iran.

     This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, the Voice of Russia, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
    From JAPAN- It has been revealed that the NSA has been bugging the UN headquarters in New York as well as 80 embassies around the world. Japan has officially raised the level of radioactive severity to 3, weeks after admitting large leaks are reaching the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese government has allocated public funds to attempt to slow down the latest radioactive leaks.
    From CUBA- British PM Cameron has attempted to bring a halt to revelations about spying activities with the US. A new Snowden leak says that the NSA has paid millions of dollars to Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook to collect user data. Snowden is accusing the British government of leaking top secret information in a bid to discredit his own disclosures. The Palestinian Authority has cancelled a round of peace talks after a confrontation in a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank left 3 Palestinians dead, one of them a UN employee who was walking to work.
    From RUSSIA- Current popular polls show that the British people are opposed to military intervention in Syria. An interview with a director of the polling agency YouGov, and with demonstrators in front of 10 Downing Street.
     From SPAIN-  Britain and the US have sent warships to the Mediterranean Sea- here are comments from Iran, Israel, and Syrian neighbor Lebanon. After a week of demonstrations and strikes in Colombia, President Santos has agreed to negotiate with the protesting farmers.
     From GERMANY- The British government wants to open the countryside to fracking, as is happening in the US. But the protests there have continued and grown stronger.
