Bush, Blair, Howard are Afraid of You

"Bush, Blair and Howard do not represent us. And they don’t speak for us. And they don’t speak for humanity. And they don’t speak for democracy. And they don’t speak for all the moral decencies by which most people live their lives. In fact, they speak for the very opposite.

"The great protest singer Marta Kubisova, whose thrilling voice sang the anthems of the Prague Spring in 1968 once read to me the words of one of her most defiant songs, written by a banned Czech group called the Plastic People of the Universe. I have abridged it slightly.
"They are afraid of the old for their memory. They are afraid of the young for their innocence. They afraid of the graves of their victims in faraway places. They are afraid of history. They are afraid of freedom. They are afraid of truth. They are afraid of democracy. So why the hell are we afraid of them? ... For they are afraid of us.”

"What all of you should remember is that you are not alone: that you are part of a great worldwide movement that refuses to accept the dangers and moral indecencies of Bush and Blair and Howard.... -John Pilger

And speaking of U.S. indecencies, where's the report on the Calipari shooting from the joint U.S.-Italian investigation we were promised within 3-4 weeks?

There is a realisation that innevitably comes about as a consequence of the peices falling together regarding the larger conspiracy. These buggers are running scared that we will, on mass, get the bigger picture. It's apparent by the capital investment and lengths taken to control the flow of current affairs directing public awareness via the brain-stream media. I feel shore this wouldnt be done if it wasnt absolutely neccessary in keeping us wired to the reality we are expected to assume.
