Developments in Ukraine - U.S. Special Force Spotted Amongst Fascist Forces

07-05-2014 01:19

The tragic events in the city of Odessa on the 2nd of May 2014, which resulted in more than 40 civilians dead and more than 100 wounded (the total numbers are still to be confirmed), demonstrated again the Kiev authorities’ inability to control the armed nationalists, including the “Right Sector” ultra-radical grouping. The Odessa’s tragedy confirmed that Kiev is prepared to use force and provocations in order to ensure at any cost holding of the presidential elections on 25 May.

05-05-2014 16:15

Credit to Virtual Renderings' "Ponderings From Within Leviathan" which moved me past the tipping point and inspired me to make the first audiocollage since the start of OWS.

Boko Haram – An Image From The Future

04-05-2014 15:02

The future, according to the book, begins only when the false totality of the present is no more. If there was no such thing then there would be no such discontinuity, but since there is there is. On the other hand, the past is not over until the false consciousness of capitalism becomes a totality, and if it does not go away for that it may have something in common with the former. The pivot on the false totality that the two can pursue together, as the tell-tale narrators of market ideology would describe it in their vocabulary, is already a reality putting severe pressure on the military-industrial complex. With Boko Haram having entered the global war on capitalism with a doctrine of open tactical mimicry of the useless suicide army, it became an undeniable fact that the Atlantic Divide is not merely an European matter, but an African one as well. Otherwise it would have to be called Northatlantic Divide but obviously that is not the whole truth. The divide also finds expression in the fact that internal divisions which are remarkably dominant on the American side do not play any role on its Pangaean one. The nervous reactions of canary factions in the military-industrial complex demonstrate that from the Southern side as well, it is not merely a local rejection of imperialism but one yearning for it to be cleared out of the entire hemisphere. If imperialism was a patient, which it is not – it is the disease and Earth is the patient – then its military bases could be seen as hospitals. But even in the few instances where they are, actually they are not, since they do not heal it.

Abused men from women

02-05-2014 18:00

(Violence inside houses.)
A text from the automatic translator.
It has been written to a doctor's site.
Nowadays in Greece there are a big crisis .
85 percent of suicides are from men.
There are reactions in Greece because a lot of feminists don't refer the problems of men but in the majoity of themes the problems are bigger to them. For example at the streets the majority of people who don't have to stay are men. The text like this is not often to be written. Also is from a doctor'site
