But what do we mean by the American Revolution?

…The revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people”
-John Adams, 1818

ImageTo those still willing,
Another year drudges on as millions of under educated, apathetic, and disenfranchised Americans accept the fate of failure as their only birth right. Month by month, our ranks are thinned and filled with disloyal applicants or those bent on disinformation and self-preservation. The cliques are getting bigger, and now fight for no other reason but for the chance of being right. We have lost more then a few good men, our loyalty to a cause, or our word. We have lost the integrity of our mask and all the responsibility that comes with it. We have lost it all because no one can rely on our once great promise: We will never forgive and we will never forget.
I look now at the shambles of the great Anonymous, the SAME Anonymous known for supporting the citizens of the world and all I see makes me sad. I hear of nothing but infighting, distrust and disloyalty on a scale unheard of by most just years ago. These acts are carried out not by strangers, but between friends and allies. The hive is not simply losing its power, but has lost its power. Not by any great force, or any one agent but because simply of inaction. The core of Anonymous is being rotted because our power is based on a unified front, not the bickering we see all around us. The fight is not over who leads – because we ALL do in our own right. The fight is not over who is more skilled, or what they may be – because we are ALL essential to our cause. The fight is not over fame because the mask shares but one ego. No friends, the fight we are fighting against today is simply inaction and today I propose we change the course of Anonymous, and maybe history will judge us fairly.

“If not us, who? And if not now, when?”
– Ronald Reagan, 1985

I bring this call to arms to everyone. From those who have never been active, but wish to, and those who have never stopped. It is time to get back to basics and fight the governments’ propaganda machines placed in our ranks. It is time to shower those placed inside us to break us down with a good, old fashioned, paper storm.

I call upon those with writing skills to publish revolutionary tomes of truth.
I call upon those skilled in arts to publish revolutionary Artwork.
I call upon those with the luxury of time to combine the two, those with the resources to print them, and those with the courage to distribute them!

Lets speak about our privacy being stolen, our security being compromised, our freedoms being denied and our future being sold. Lets rally in both virtual chart rooms and physically full ones. Speak loud not just of a government revolution but a cultural one. Scream from rooftops and hash-tags, front lines and paper stacks. Leave no sign post, empty book, shelf or hand empty of our mark. For too long we have allowed the very machine we fought against ot steal our heroes and reclaim those we have freed from bondage. This MUST end today! Do not simply start this discussion, the time for talk has passed! Act now or abandon your mask along with all hope because push has come to shove and it’s time the hive act as one again. I will leave the logistics to the hive because I have seen greatness rise when its called upon. Go now to recruit, educate and overcome so that Anonymous is no longer the stagnant force it is considered now.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil.
God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak.
Not to act is to act.”
– Dietrick Bonhoeffer

The NDAA: What They Don’t Want You To Know

 Lily Dane

Activist Post

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Sections 1021 and 1022, authorizes the indefinite military detention, without charge or trial, of any person, including an American citizen, and applies the “Law of War,” to U.S. soil, making the United States legally a battlefield.

People Against the NDAA (PANDA) was founded by Dan Johnson in January 2012. Johnson is a remarkable young man – he’s only 20 years old, and is already a nationally known writer and speaker.

PANDA is the largest organization of its kind in the world, and has worked on over 18 pieces of state and local anti-NDAA legislation.

The PANDA Mission Statement, from the organization’s website:

Our Mission is to nonviolently block, strike down, repeal, stop, void and fight the indefinite detention provisions, Sections 1021 and 1022, of the National Defense Authorization Act for the Fiscal Year of 2012, to fight for American civil liberties, to combat laws restricting liberty in the interest of National Security, to support current government officials that are doing so and to engage a younger generation in the politics of the United States so this cannot happen again.

Johnson spoke at the Freedom Forum in Santa Cruz, CA on March 19, 2014, where he broke down the law and discussed its impacts on citizens:

Good news for #Anakata (?)

#Anakata

#Anakata

Good news for #Anakata | not so good for teh one being threatened but clearly grounds for optimism as teh co-founder of #TPB goes to trial 4 months from now / Danish and Swedish police flying half way around teh world to try to find some way to prove that Gottfried was teh only person with access to teh computer that allegedly was used to hack into a bank.

Gottfried`s lawyer should immediately contact this “John” in Cambodia as a witness to teh fact that 50+ people had access to his computer.

My main question right now is, why there was a Swedish policeman there? His Swedish conviction was overturned and Gottfried is now in Danish jurisdiction. Anybody else feel something strange going on behind teh scenes?

What are teh 1% so scared of? | “The Piketty Panic”

Paul Krugman of teh #NYTimes has written an excellent Op Ed piece that should interest all of us. Especially those not among teh 1% Oligarchs that own most of teh worlds riKrugman_New-thumbLargeches. Krugman starts by calling the writer of a book a phenomenon.

““Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” the new book by the French economist Thomas Piketty, is a bona fide phenomenon. “

Why is this and why is teh only comment from teh super rich that Mr. Piketty must be a Marxist
Krugman continues:  “Other books on economics have been best sellers, but Mr. Piketty’s contribution is serious, discourse-changing scholarship in a way most best sellers aren’t. And conservatives are terrified. Thus James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute warns in National Review that Mr. Piketty’s work must be refuted, because otherwise it “will spread among the clerisy and reshape the political economic landscape on which all future policy battles will be waged.”

Well, good luck with that. The really striking thing about the debate so far is that the right seems unable to mount any kind of substantive counterattack to Mr. Piketty’s thesis. Instead, the response has been all about name-calling — in particular, claims that Mr. Piketty is a Marxist, and so is anyone who considers inequality of income and wealth an important issue.”

Who is the author and what is teh “Second Belle Époque”?
Thomas Piketty, professor at the Paris School of Economics, isn’t a household name, although that may change with the English-language publication of his magnificent, sweeping meditation on inequality, Capital in the Twenty-First Century. Yet his influence runs deep. It has become a commonplace to say that we are living in a second Gilded Age—or, as Piketty likes to put it, a second Belle Époque—defined by the incredible rise of the “one percent.” But it has only become a commonplace thanks to Piketty’s work.

Oh teh irony!
Mr. Krugmans article has a lot of comments, but teh best one is of the teh ironic kind. Especially funny to me since my home country is Norway where we all pay taxes and all get free healthcare. We are even worse than Canada. [insert international symbol for irony here]

Since 1980 the one percent has seen its income share surge again
In another article Krugman wrote about this book, Why We Are In a New Gilded Age,  a paragraph stands out to me:
“It therefore came as a revelation when Piketty and his colleagues showed that incomes of the now famous “one percent,” and of even narrower groups, are actually the big story in rising inequality. And this discovery came with a second revelation: talk of a second Gilded Age, which might have seemed like hyperbole, was nothing of the kind. In America in particular the share of national income going to the top one percent has followed a great U-shaped arc. Before World War I the one percent received around a fifth of total income in both Britain and the United States. By 1950 that share had been cut by more than half. But since 1980 the one percent has seen its income share surge again—and in the United States it’s back to what it was a century ago.”

Enlightenment and Activism

Jefferson by Rembrandt

Jefferson by Rembrandt

#Enlightenment #Activism | inspired by Thomas Jeffersons thinking

/ Once you understand teh world, you can take part in improving  it /

Before you embark on a mission to take part in changing teh world, it is your duty to learn all you can about teh ideas behind your cause. It means listening to your enemies, friends, media, history and those living in teh middle of teh hell that may be your reason to partake in an attempt to better their world.

Be it Palestinians, Tartars, Muslims, jailed anons, children in need or simply millions of Syrian refugees – there is always much to learn. If you biindly follow teh flock or special interests you are bound to make more harm than good. Enlighten yourself before jumping up and blindly sharing other peoples ideas and words.

This is my belief!
