Masters Of War

Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build all the bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks I just want you to know I can see through your masks. You that never done nothin' But build to destroy You play with my world Like it's your little toy You put a gun in my hand And you hide from my eyes And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly. Like Judas of old You lie and deceive A world war can be won You want me to believe But I see through your eyes And I see through your brain Like I see through the water That runs down my drain. You fasten all the triggers For the others to fire Then you set back and watch When the death count gets higher You hide in your mansion' As young people's blood Flows out of their bodies And is buried in the mud. You've thrown the worst fear That can ever be hurled Fear to bring children Into the world For threatening my baby Unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood That runs in your veins. How much do I know To talk out of turn You might say that I'm young You might say I'm unlearned But there's one thing I know Though I'm younger than you That even Jesus would never Forgive what you do. Let me ask you one question Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness Do you think that it could I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die And your death'll come soon I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Down to your deathbed And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead.------- Bob Dylan 1963

Participatory Totalitarianism

Participatory Totalitarianism



In the new public-private surveillance state, we’re so at home with Big Brother that we’re not just passively watched–we actively display ourselves. (Photo: ‘Pong / Flickr)

Interesting article, thought provoking concepts - participatory totalitarianism coerced with/by franchised terrorism.

The matrix is well and truly entrenched in the UK, to have a 'legitimate' economic existence you cannot avoid it. To be successful in this environment it must be embraced.

Does it make anyone elses skin crawl?

All actions have an equal and opposite reaction... Buy gold, buy guns, smash yer phone, snap your credit card and run for the fucking hills man!

"Run for the hills"
I now live 6 months out of the year in the country side of S/K.

"Franchised terrorism" exactly. I will be using that.
The West countries are all franchises of the multi national corporatistas.
The needed a new selling point after they ran out of a communist under every bed.
Intersting how the "communist" countries are now better at capitalism than we are.
Keep an eye on the Sino-Russo movement.
Hope this finds you and yours well
