A Coffee for the Less Fortunate



This story seems to have gone viral since I first saw it a few days ago, still it's well worth reprinting here.  Such a simple idea yet so impactful, its always interesting to me to see voluntary ways in which people can support each other, without the coercive measures of government.
"'We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we're aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter : 'Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended'
They pay for their order, take the two and leave. I ask my friend: 'What are those 'suspended' coffees ?'
'Wait for it and you will see''
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four 'suspended'. While I still wonder what's the deal with those 'suspended' coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks 'Do you have a suspended coffee ?'

It's simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ?
If you own a business why don't you offer it to your clients...I am sure many of them will like it :)"

Charlie and Meg's Roundhouse



Another one from the Daily Mail, an article today reporting on the plight of Charlie Hague and Megan Williams, a couple whose beautiful roundhouse (pictured above in the snow) may be demolished by their local council if they fail to gain retrospective planning permission.


The house took a year to build, it has a wooden frame, uses lime plastered straw bales for insulation and has a sod roof.  The couple recruited friends to help with the construction and the total cost was around fifteen thousand pounds.   Yes, you really can build a beautiful house for around fifteen thousand pounds!





I'm shooting from the hip here, but it seems to me planning permission exists primarily for the benefit of big building corporations, so they can construct huge estates full of expensive houses that all look the same.  People then end up enslaved to thousand pound a month mortgages, (Mortgage - literally 'death contract').  Rather than respecting private property rights we have a system where an armed gang (that would be government) dictates what everyone can and can't do on their own land, all for our own benefit of course.  The sad thing is so many people love their own enslavement, the couple here have been criticised on their facebook page for not playing by the rules and asking permission before building on their own land!  It's kind of like when you're at school and have to ask permission to go to the toilet, the conditioning starts early.

I suppose it come down to that you either believe humans left to their own devices can co-operate and develop land in a way that's beneficial for everyone, or we need a group with a self-bestowed monopoly on violence to dictate to us all what to do. We've seen where the latter of those two options has taken us so you can decide for yourself whether you like it or not.


Anyway, Watch the video to be taken on a guided tour of the house by its creator Charlie Hague:

Married to a Sociopath


Just a link to an article that caught my eye from today's Daily Mail.  It's by a woman who believes she was for ten years married to a sociopath.

I'm linking to it partly because I just find it interesting and partly because it fits in with my previous post questioning whether Barack Obama has any functioning sense of morality.  I don't find it particularly pleasing to think that there are a percentage of people who are simply incapable of feeling emotion or any sense of empathy with other human beings, but are simply good at faking these things.  Less pleasing still is the thought that such people tend to gravitate towards positions of high political office, but that's another story.   

It seems to be human nature to impose our own inner sense of feeling on other people, to assume others feel the same sense of love, empathy, guilt and hurt that we do.  We must at least consider that for a percentage of the population, this may not be the case at all.

Here's the start of the article:


"I thought I’d fallen in love with the best man in the world. But Cameron had learned to mimic emotions he was expected to show in certain situations — he worked out what I was looking for and deliberately morphed into that perfect being.

An estimated 4 per cent of the population are sociopaths like Cameron — that’s 272  million people — so it’s likely many of you have had similar experiences. 

Sociopathy, otherwise known as antisocial personality disorder, is defined as ‘a pervasive pattern of disregarding the feelings of others’ which begins in childhood and continues into adulthood. 
Sociopaths usually have a lack of conscience and may also have a history of impulsive behaviour.
But because they’re highly intelligent, entertaining and charming, they blend into society. The truth is it’s just an act. Falling in love with one will break your heart. 

Five years ago, I realised I’d been married to a sociopath and started writing a blog. As a result, hundreds of women contacted me claiming they, too, were victims.  
But let me tell you about Cameron. He was a typical sociopath: deceptive, consistently irresponsible and, worst of all, had no remorse about his actions."

Fluoride, the Forced Drugging of Society




Very good video on fluoride by James Corbett of Global Research TV.   What particularly catches my attention is the video points out that in the grand scheme of things, tooth cavities are not the worst plague to befall mankind, not when compared to cancer or heart disease for example.  If people then accept that it's justified to add fluoride to the water supply, how much more justifiable would it be to add statins or other drugs. Maybe that's the idea?

If you believe as I do that fluoride is added to the water for reasons other than the public good, then there would seem to be two possible driving forces behind it.   It could be that somebody has found they can make a buck out of it, in which case there is an incentive to add other drugs. Alternatively, (and this reason doesn't negate the former), it could be a plot by a nefarious group to dumb down the population, in which case there is an incentive to add other drugs.

Interestingly the Aluminium Company of America (the ones who were making the buck out of it) hired Propagandist Edward Bernays to convince the American public that water fluoridation was both safe and beneficial to human health.  No small task since up until that point people mostly used it as rat poison.  Bernays however was well capable, he'd previously been hired by the tobacco industry to convince women of the liberating value of smoking cigarettes.

Peter Schiff - Securing the Idiot Vote




In the video below economist Peter Schiff points out the ludicrous nature of democratic government.  He may come across as a bit condescending talking about 'the idiot vote', but I have to be honest and admit this is the hardest I've laughed all month.

She Never Saw it Coming




“It’s an interesting question. During the last election, I happened to be talking to a well-known black activist very much involved in civil rights and other activism, and he told me a story. He said that after Obama’s first election in 2008, he was visited by a group of African American women leading activists who wanted to talk to him. He said he was there when they came out of the meeting and asked them what he was like.”

“And their answer was this man has no moral centre,” said Chomsky. “That’s their reaction and I think they’re right. If you look at his policies, I think that’s what they reveal.”
              Noam Chomsky, when asked if Barack Obama has a moral centre.



I probably wouldn't bother to blog about it if I'd come across an article exposing George W. Bush or Tony Blair as being devoid of any sense of morality.  I think you've got to go to some pretty extreme places to find anyone who still believes those two have a moral fibre between them.   But Barack Obama is a little different, as far as I can see he's still able to sell the image of himself as a good, caring and loving man.   This would appear to be a deception.

It's common enough for fathers to joke about enacting violence against boys whom their daughters may have a crush on.   I was round a friends house a while ago when he made a joke about having to get his sharpening stone out as his daughter had a play date with a boy.  They were both four years old and it was a funny joke.  It probably wouldn't have been so funny however, if my friend had previously attacked and killed a large number of children with a sword.   Under such circumstances it might have been considered inappropriate humour and I would have most likely called the police.

In the video below Barack Obama makes this common joke to warn a boy band to not get any ideas about his daughters, he threatens them with predator drones saying, 'You will never see it [them] coming' and finishes by saying 'You think I'm joking'.   The joke is well delivered and the audience laugh. The unfunny thing about it is though he's not actually joking. Barack Obama really does kill allot of children with predator drones.   It would seem that this is not something he's particularly ashamed of, no little light went on in his head during the preparation of that speech to tell him it was inappropriate.   What does this say about his sense of morality?   Is his caring image merely a projection, a façade behind which a rather sociopathic individual lives?

The reason I think this strikes me is because I could never understand how anyone could look at Tony Blair and not shudder, or how anyone could listen  to George W. Bush and take him seriously.   Barack Obama, whilst clearly vapid, doesn't necessarily come across to me as an obviously evil individual. His murderous actions however, coupled with how untroubled he seems to be by them, would suggest a different story.

Advaita Extensions - Deep State Dialogue



I'm involved in running a non-duality event in Devon on the first weekend in May. We're aiming to look at the ways in which engaging with Eastern or Perennial philosophy effects how we communicate with and relate to ourselves and others. How a deepening of consciousness alters the way we both listen and seek to make ourselves understood.   Particular influence will be drawn from the work on dialogue of the philosopher and theoretical physicist David Bohm.  With that overall structure in place, we intend that the weekend will also be quite open to whatever the participants want it to become.

The event will begin on the evening of Friday the 3rd of May with an evening meal and will conclude after breakfast on Monday the 6th of May.  Total cost is £140 which includes food and accommodation in a shared room.

If you're interested and would like to know more please contact me at:

Argo and the Other Iranian Revolution



“History is commonly regarded as an attempt to produce a structured account of the past. It proclaims to tell us what really happened, but in most cases it fails to do that. Instead it is set to conceal our shame, to hide those various elements, events, incidents and occurrences in our past which we cannot cope with. History, therefore, can be regarded as a system of concealment. Accordingly, the role of the true historian is similar to that of the psychoanalyst: both aim to unveil the repressed. For the psychoanalyst, it is the unconscious mind. For the historian, it is our collective shame.”
           Gilad Atzmon

'The CIA has an "entertainment industry liaison office" that helps producers and directors remake its image from that of a lawless gang that assassinates, overthrows governments and runs drugs. As Obama's CIA commits multiple murder by drone, Affleck lauds the "clandestine service... that is making sacrifices on behalf of Americans every day... I want to thank them very much."'
         John Pilger


The film Argo tells the story of six U.S. diplomats who escaped Iran when the U.S. embassy was taken over during the Islamic revolution of 1979.   It's the wider revolution I'll be commenting on, not the specific incident of escape. The standard story, which the film repeats, has always been that the CIA really dropped the ball in 1979, they just didn't see the revolution coming. In a report issued to then President Carter in 1977, the CIA stated that:

“The Shah will be an active participant in Iranian life well into the 1980s…and there will be no radical changes in Iranian political behavior in the near future.”

Whoops! It's always held up alongside the Bay of Pigs as a classic case of CIA incompetence, see, they really don't know everything! But is there a deeper story?

Well according to the following Global Research article by Harry Martin, yes there is. It's always been contended by (amongst others) investigative journalist Robert Parry that the incoming Republican administration struck a deal with the Islamic revolutionaries to hold on to their American hostages until after Ronald Reagan became President.  If Jimmy Carter had negotiated their release he might have won a second term in office. Sure enough the hostages were released on the day Reagan was sworn into office and in due course the doggy arms deals began.  But the following article goes further than that, in it Mr. Martin discusses documents revealed by Iranian intellectual Fara Mansoor, that point to the whole revolution being a CIA operation right from the start.  To quote from the article:

With thousands of documents to support his position, Mansoor says that the “hostage crisis” was a political “management tool” created by the pro-Bush faction of the CIA, and implemented through an a priori Alliance with Khomeini’s Islamic Fundamentalists.” He says the purpose was twofold:
  • To keep Iran intact and communist-free by putting Khomeini in full control.
  • To destablize the Carter Administration and put George Bush in the White House.
“The private Alliance was the logical result of the intricate Iranian political reality of the mid-70s, and a complex network of powerful U.S.-Iranian ‘business’ relationships,” Mansoor states. “I first met Khomeini in 1963 during the failed coup attempt against the Shah. Since that time I have been intimately involved with Iranian politics. I knew in 1979 that the whole, phoney ‘Islamic Revolution’ was ‘mission implausible’.” Mansoor was frank. “There is simply no way that those guys with the beards and turbans could have pulled off such a brilliantly planned operation without very sophisticated help.”
Mansoor has spent 10 years researching the issue.
“I have collected enough data to yield a very clear picture. Mr. Bush’s lieutenants removed the Shah, brought Khomeini back to Iran, and guided his rise to power, sticking it to President Carter, the American people (52 in particular), and the Iranian people.”
He stated with boxes and boxes of evidence to support his contentions.
“My extensive research has revealed the heretofore untold truth about this episode. This is not another ‘October Surprise’ theory purporting how the hostage crisis resulted in some Khomeini-Republic better deal. That theory puts the cart before the horse. Its absurd premise is that a major international deal was initiated and consummated in three weeks. Give me a break! Bill Casey didn’t have to go to Paris to play lets-make-deal. The ‘deal’ had been in operation for at least two years. This game of blind-man’s-bluff around Casey’s gravestone was more disinformation, damage control.”

You can rad the full article here:


It's a fascinating possibility which frankly makes more sense that to think that the CIA were just not paying attention to the goings on in one of the most oil rich nations on Earth. But one whistle blower even with an impressive set of documents doesn't prove the case.  So for now anyway, I suppose a good  degree of speculation remains.

Where there isn't any need for speculation however is in the other Iranian revolution. The one that took place in 1953 and replaced Iran's first democratic government with the Monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who then began a twenty five year run of oppression and torture. There's no need to speculate because it's a matter of historical record that this coup, named Operation Ajax, was instigated by the CIA at the request of the British after Iranian Prime-minister Mohammad Mossadegh nationalised Iran's oil supply, depriving British Petroleum of it's revenues there. The following short film explores the disastrous 1953 coup and the hypocrisy of the United States stance towards Iran today.

One things for certain, you won't see a Hollywood blockbuster on this revolution any time soon!

Conscious TV - Jo Berry & Pat Magee


There's a whole host of new and fascinating interviews now available at Conscious TV, this time with a particular emphasis on trauma and the concept of forgiveness. I've just picked out the following one to feature here, Iain McNay's interview of Jo Berry and Pat Magee.  Jo Berry is the daughter of Sir Anthony Berry, the MP who was killed at the Conservative Party Conference in 1984, killed by a bomb planted by then IRA member Pat Magee.

The two of them met for the first time several months after Mr. Magee was released from prison in 1999, in this interview they talk candidly about the dialogue they entered into which has continued ever since. They now run a non-profit organisation, Building Bridges for Peace, which seeks to demonstrate how dialogue and mediation can resolve and transform conflict.

The thing I find most compelling is the honesty from both of them, neither clutch at terms like forgiveness or try and make their experience fit any sort of mould. Also this interaction is not about liking Pat Magee, rehabilitating his image or justifying what he did, it's simply about dialogue and understanding, and for me that's actually enough.

Remembering Rachel Corrie


“We are all born and someday we’ll all die. Most likely to some degree alone. What if our aloneness isn’t a tragedy? What if our aloneness is what allows us to speak the truth without being afraid? What if our aloneness is what allows us to adventure – to experience the world as a dynamic presence – as a changeable, interactive thing?

If I lived in Bosnia or Rwanda or who knows where else, needless death wouldn’t be a distant symbol to me, it wouldn’t be a metaphor, it would be a reality.

And I have no right to this metaphor. But I use it to console myself. To give a fraction of meaning to something enormous and needless.

This realization. This realization that I will live my life in this world where I have privileges.

I can’t cool boiling waters in Russia. I can’t be Picasso. I can’t be Jesus. I can’t save the planet single-handedly.

I can wash dishes”
Rachel Corrie, January 2003, two months before she died




Just over ten years ago Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli Defence Forces armoured bulldozer, whilst attempting to prevent it from demolishing the house of a Palestinian family in the Gaza Strip. She was twenty three years old at the time.

Comparisons have naturally been made to 'Tank Man', the man who obstructed the movement of Chinese tanks at the time of the Tiananmen Square Massacre. But where as this photograph has become iconic




Chances are this is the first time you've seen this one.  This Israeli bulldozer will crush Rachel to death in a few moments time




Here's an interview with Rachel Corrie recorded in Gaza just days before she was killed.

The Swedish Mannequins


Apparently this photograph has gone viral over the past couple of days so DSN maybe the last place you hear about it. The photo was originally taken by a Swedish lady named Rebecka in 2010 and has sat quietly on her blog for the past three years, before recently gaining the world's attention.

Essentially the Swedish department store Ahlens (it has been misreported as being H&M), has started using these fuller figure mannequins to more realistic represent the average women's body shape. I thought this made for quite a pleasing contrast with my previous post, where the girls from Monster High are all stick thin with disproportionately large heads.

Two things I find interesting about this. Firstly, whilst Ahlens may not be the only store to have ever used slightly larger mannequins, it's still such a rare thing to do that it has captured global attention! Secondly, upon discovering that the Mannequins were not at H&M, the Washington Post declared that the photos were faked. That is to say, they found it easier to believe that someone would go to the effort of faking them (think about what's involved) than that a store would actually use mannequins that are ever so slightly larger than normal. Larger than normal mannequins that is, they're still smaller than the average woman. What does this say about the world we live in?

Vigilant Citizen on Monster High




I wasn't sure whether to link to this or not, I have to admit I don't find it the most compelling case the Vigilant Citizen has ever made. However, taking his work in totality, I believe he is on to something regarding the presence of dark occult type themes appearing in the music and entertainment industry. So I'm going to stick to my original pledge and link to everything he produces.

Monster High is a children's television show about a high school where the students are the children of prominent fictional monsters; (Dracula, Frankenstein etc.). Certainly on the face of it it carries quite a positive anti-bullying, be yourself, don't be ashamed of your uniqueness, message. The VC casts his critical gaze upon it because of the sexualised clothes the characters wear (it's marketed to girls under ten) and the heavy emphasis on darkness and death. He draws a connection to the chairman of Mattel being a member of the Trilateral Commission and (apparently) the Bilderberg group. The idea being that Mattel is pushing the 'Illuminati' agenda on to children. He also claims that like much popular entertainment, the show is laced with references to the CIA's now supposedly ended mind control program, MKULTRA.

Has he gone to far this time? Maybe, it's hard to see what's strange in a show about monsters having coffins and skulls everywhere. I'm sure I was into all that stuff when I was a child and it didn't seem to do me any harm, (based on the contents of this blog readers may disagree!). However I agree with him that the clothes the teenage characters wear could only be bought in sex shops and in contrast to the shows message of uniqueness, they're all borderline anorexia thin.

I'll comment on and link to some of what I consider to be the Vigilant Citizen's more compelling pieces another time, for now I'll reprint the first couple of paragraphs of his most recent effort and leave it up to you to decided.

"Monster High is a highly successful toy franchise that is somewhat similar to the Bratz doll line, as both are comprised of edgy, fashionable characters with attitude. Like many other toy franchises, Monster High is much more than a doll line: It is a multi-platform franchise comprised of toys, DVDs, a web series, music videos, video games, books, clothing accessories, and much more.
The brand distinguishes itself with its unique, twisted universe inspired by monster movies and sci-fi horror. All of the characters are either offspring of known movie monsters or some kind of undead zombies. While Monster High’s slogan is “Be yourself, be unique, be a monster!”, this franchise also communicates deeper messages to its young audience. In fact, a closer look at the stories in Monster High reveals that it is perfectly in sync with the Illuminati’s Agenda as it promotes themes such as hypersexualization, superficiality, a culture of death and even Monarch Mind Control. As seen in previous articles on this site, these themes are abundant in mass media and, the fact that they are present in a doll line for kids further proves that there’s a continuous effort to expose impressionable minds to a specific set of symbols and values.
This should not come as a surprise, as Monster High was created by the world’s largest toy company, Mattel, with revenues of over $6.2 billion per year. The chairman of the board of directors, Robert A. Eckert, is a long-time member of the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergs, the two most powerful elite circles shaping the world today. As you might know, company representatives who attend these elite meetings are there because their brands can help push the elite’s long-term Agenda. Powerful, world-reaching companies such as Mattel do not simply sell products, they sell a culture associated with them. Considering how children get attached and even obsessed with their dolls and the universe that surrounds them, what better way to reach young minds and to teach them the values of a New World Order future? Let’s look at Monster High and the universe it introduces to young children."

Meet the New Pope




The picture above is of General Jorge Videla, the former dictator of Argentina, receiving communion from Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has recently become known as Pope Francis.


In 1985 General Videla was convicted of numerous act of kidnapping, torture and murder.  Forced disappearances ran into the thousands during his dictatorship.  In 2012 he was convicted of planning to steal the new born babies of his political opponents, whilst having their mothers murdered.

Professor Michael Chossudovsky was teaching in Argentina when the military junta came to power.  In his Global Research article that I'm linking to, he recalls the role the upper echelons of the Argentine Catholic Church played in legitimising this regime. Chossudovsky claims that as the highest ranking Jesuit in the country at the time, Bergoglio was central to this and has himself had kidnapping charges brought against him over the disappearance of two of his more left leaning Priests.

Orwellian Secret Courts in the UK?



On the day the Gay Marriage bill was passed it would seem something altogether more sinister was going on at Westminster.
If you live in the United Kingdom you might want to read the following Global Research article I'm linking to. It's about the possibility that Britain will have secret courts in the very near future, courtesy of a bill sponsored by Justice Minister Kenneth Clarke. According to the author, judicial trials could be held in secret, it could be illegal to tell anyone about them and the accused would not even have to be informed of what they were charged with. Very disturbing. Here's the opening paragraph, the article has a link to a protest form from Big Brother Watch:
'Britain is on the brink of tyranny. The Justice and Security Bill, if it becomes law, will enable judicial trials to be held in secret, and it will even be illegal to tell anyone about them. The bill has now gone through all stages in the House of Commons, and will now go to the House of Lords for consideration. In other words, it’s nearly there.'

GMO Dangers 'Complete Nonsense'?




An article in the Daily Mail this week reports that the British Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson, is pushing to have genetically modified food grown in the United Kingdom.   Mr. Paterson believes the health concerns surrounding GM are a 'complete nonsense' and that 'Over a trillion meals containing GM food have now been eaten in what is effectively the biggest ever global clinical trial in the history of mankind, without one adverse health report.' He has also referred to critics of GMO as 'Humbugs'.


So there we have it then, what are we all waiting for? Let's get on with enjoying the many benefits of GM crops!
Well, actually, there are some dissenting views. Dissenting views that point to GMO being very dangerous indeed. One of them is Jeffrey Smith, author of 'Seeds of Deception', a book documenting the health dangers of GMO and lies told to cover them up. Here's what the former Environment Minister Michael Meacher had to say about it:

"This is a brilliant book which combines shrewd dissection of the true nature of GM technology, a devastating critique of the health and environmental hazards of GM crops, and scarifying examples of the manipulation of both science and the media by the biotech industry... What is so exciting about this book is that it is no dry text of scientific exegesis—it positively fizzes with the human drama of the cabals and conspiracies behind the scenes... It is meticulously documented and powerfully written, somewhere between a documentary and a thriller."
Michael Meacher, former UK environment minister



Bio-tech companies (primarily Monsanto) have been fighting a propaganda war against the American people for over twenty years, a war to convince them that genetically modified food is safe and the future of agriculture.  Now it's not even possible for American's to know if they're eating GM or not, which is of course the way Monsanto wants it.  I have to admit this is an issue I've never looked into in any great depth, but I intend to become better informed about it as the like of Monsanto aren't going to give up until they've taken over (or perhaps destroyed) the whole world.
Here's a interview with Mr. Smith on Russia Today discussing the dangers and delusions of GM. You see if you think he can be written of as a 'Humbug' or not.

Yearning Curve - Lean Lightly




My friend Bairbre (that's the Irish way of spelling Barbara) and her band Yearning Curve have just released their first single, Lean Lightly.  I might be biased but I think it's absolutely brilliant!  What makes it all the more inspiring to me though, is that Bairbre only started writing songs and playing the guitar within the last five years.  I remember her plodding through learning the basic chords in her kitchen, so it's just incredible to see this music video arise from there!

Fluoride is Poison



I remember learning about the fluoridation controversy in a biology lesson at high school.  But the issue was presented as if everyone agreed that fluoride was good for you, the debate was purely an ethical one between people who believed that the government should be medicating the population and those that do not.  That the critics of fluoridation believe it to be poisonous at the level it's put into the water supply wasn't mentioned.

Then when I left school I read a book by David Icke (The Biggest Secret), probably not because I expected to find it convincing, more out of an interest in how successful someone could be in creating an alternative explanation of the world.  Like, would it fall down with the slightest fact checking?  One of the claims that I found most outrageous (along with the CIA trafficking drugs) was that we were adding poison to our water supply in the form of fluoride!  I mean, if that were true then the world would have to be utterly insane!  I bought a book on the subject (Barry Groves - 'Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death?', highly recommended!) and unfortunately found it made a rather compelling case.

The government here tried to introduce fluoridation a few years ago, but they were prevented by a successful public awareness campaign.  So such things can work!  I'll blog more on fluoride in the future, but I didn't want to pass up on this recent video by Abby Martin which gives an excellent overview of the corrupt history of this deadly practice.

(Oh and just in case you were wondering, it turns out Mr. Icke was right about the CIA trafficking drugs too).

The War on Democracy



The War on Democracy is perhaps John Pilger's finest film, it details the continuous war fought by the United States against the people of Latin America and features an interview with Hugo Chavez.  The the following description is taken from Mr. Pilger's website:

'The War On Democracy' (2007) was John Pilger's first for cinema. It explores the current and past relationship of Washington with Latin American countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia and Chile.

Using archive footage sourced by Michael Moore's archivist Carl Deal, the film shows how serial US intervention, overt and covert, has toppled a series of legitimate governments in the Latin American region since the 1950s. The democratically elected Chilean government of Salvador Allende, for example, was ousted by a US backed coup in 1973 and replaced by the military dictatorship of General Pinochet. Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador have all been invaded by the United States.

John Pilger interviews several ex-CIA agents who took part in secret campaigns against democratic countries in the region. He investigates the School of the Americas in the US state of Georgia, where Pinochet’s torture squads were trained along with tyrants and death squad leaders in Haiti, El Salvador, Brazil and Argentina.

The film unearths the real story behind the attempted overthrow of Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez in 2002 and how the people of the barrios of Caracas rose up to force his return to power.

It also looks at the wider rise of populist governments across South America lead by indigenous leaders intent on loosening the shackles of Washington and a fairer redistribution of the continent's natural wealth.

John Pilger says: "[The film] is about the struggle of people to free themselves from a modern form of slavery". These people, he says, "describe a world not as American presidents like to see it as useful or expendable, they describe the power of courage and humanity among people with next to nothing. They reclaim noble words like democracy, freedom, liberation, justice, and in doing so they are defending the most basic human rights of all of us in a war being waged against all of us.'

Just to give you a feel for it, here are some quotes from people interviewed in the film. 




In the CIA we didn't give a hoot about democracy. I mean, it was fine if a government was elected and would cooperate with us, but, if it didn't, then democracy didn't mean a thing to us, and I don't think it means a thing today.”

The true goal of the United States government is control. They feel that if they, the United States did not control the governments of Latin America, then somebody else would, and the principal of government by the people, for the people, of the people, that is, uh, that's just silly.”
           Philip Agee CIA agent 1957-68




The doctrine that was taught was that if you want information, you use physical abuse you use false imprisonment, you use threats to family members, you use virtual any method necessary to get what you want.”

If there's someone you don't want, you kill them. If you can't get the information you want, if you can't get that person to shut up or stop what they're doing, you simply assassinate 'em and you assassinate 'em with one of your death squads.”
Major Joseph Blair, Instructor at the United States School of the Americas 1986-89

We'll intervene whenever we decide it's in our national security interests to intervene, and if you don't like it' lump it. Get used to it world – we're not gonna put up with this nonsense. If our interests are threatened, we're gonna do it.”
Duane Clarridge ex-head of the CIA's Latin American division

and finally, from a different perspective:




I came out a totally, um... ..different person... but also with new eyes... and... more attuned to the hurting, the brokenness, the oppression, the deceit of my government.”

I've heard people say that what happened in Abu Ghraib is an isolated incident, and I have to just shake my head and say, “Are we on the same planet?” You know, “Aren't you aware of our history?” You know, “Isn't history taught in the classroom, about the role of the US government in human rights violations?”
Sister Dianna Ortiz, talking about her experience in a United States backed Guatemalan torture chamber.


Again, I'm not linking to this film to support Chavez or socialism etc.  I'm linking to it to cast whatever light I can on the real state of affairs in the world, in this continuing age of empires.
