Some things are so messed up that you just don't know where to start.

Some things are so messed up that you just don’t know where to start.


Friends, I have on a few occasions mentioned that I read Sam Harris’ book ‘The Moral Landscape’ and rather enjoyed it.

I would have preferred if Harris had provided more argument or evidence in support of his point of view instead of simply stating it with a ‘come at me bro!’ attitude. But still, I felt there were many ideas in the book that were worth considering and he tackled the more ‘sciencey’ parts of it rather well.

But then I found out a few troubling things about our dear mister Harris.

And they have left me to convinced that heĀ is a perfect example of what happens when intelligent people start commenting on things about which they are utterly ignorant.

The awesomeness of this picture knows no bounds.

Hillary Clinton recently said that “American can’t create peace in the Middle East on its own”.

The truth of this statement becomes shockingly obvious when one considers that it’s America who has been supporting Israel’s destructive military ambitions for the last 60 years.

America certainly can’t create peace, when they are the ones funding the war.

Hey, America! Here’s a crazy idea: what if you didn’t give Israel two billion dollars in weapons every year or so? Maybe that would help the peace.

Just a thought.

Anyway, I need to qualify the title of this post, or rather divide it into two parts. I have no doubt, whatsoever, that the majority of the Israeli people do want a peaceful solution to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.

However, I also have no doubt that the Israeli government does not want peace, at all.

I can imagine that a lot of people will disagree with this statement but let me ask you this:

What possible advantage would there be for the Likud Party if peace were to break out?

I'm talking to you AT&T!

I mentioned in my previous article on how freedom of the Internet is being eroded that this is a fight that we can never stop fighting. Every time we defend our Internet freedom against an attack we should rejoice, and then get ready for the next attack.

The next attack is currently being launched by AT&T and Comcast.

When you read this you may actually “wtf” in real life, I sure did.

What AT&T is doing is suing for the right to completely restrict all Internet access, for all their subscribers, in whatever way they choose.

What’s their argument? Oh, that’s simple. They are claiming that if they don’t have the right to control everyone’s Internet then that would be a violation of their right to free speech.

I shit you not.
