Hi, it's been a busy few months, or a busy year you could say for Global TSOG activities, and I am happy to say various counter-movements to combat the dictatorial and corrupt actions of authorities world-wide.
From the classic old school Police brutality, with the usual militaristic strategy and violent excessive force in the USA, Egypt, Britain, Italy, Greece, to the more sophisticated LAW making, surveillance (The Murdoch phone hacking scandal) and banking Tsarist like activity. (Tsar: Divine guided/deluded king and dictator of whatever one feels like dictating).
Please see Hagbard Celine's LAWS for more insights.
1. National Security is the chief cause of national insecurity.
2. Accurate communication is possible only in a non-punishing situation.
3. An honest politician is a national calamity.
On the OCCUPY MOVEMENT.
The Occupy movement is an international protest movement which is primarily directed against economic and social inequality. The first Occupy protest to receive wide coverage was Occupy Wall Street in New York City, which began on September 17, 2011. By October 9, Occupy protests had taken place or were ongoing in over 95 cities across 82 countries, and over 600 communities in the United States. As of December 20 the Meetup page "Occupy Together" listed 2,751 Occupy communities worldwide.--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupy_movement
On the NATIONAL DEFENCE AUTHORIZATION ACT.
"The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 is a controversial bill that has been passed by both houses of Congress separately, and a final version approved by the Senate on December 15, 2011. Though the White House and Senate sponsors maintain that the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (AUMF) already grants presidential authority for indefinite detention, the Act legislatively codifies the President's authority to indefinitely detain terrorism suspects, including American citizens, without trial as defined in Title X, Subtitle D, SEC 1031(a-e) of the bill.
Because those who may be held indefinitely include U.S. citizens
arrested on American soil, and because that detention may be by the
military, the Act has received critical attention by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and media sources --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Authorization_Act_for_Fiscal_Year_2012
On the draconian and wrong-headed SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)
"These bills, and the enforcement philosophy that underlies them,
represent a dramatic retreat from this country's tradition of leadership
in supporting the free exchange of information and ideas on the
Internet. At a time when many foreign governments have dramatically
stepped up their efforts to censor Internet communications, these bills
would incorporate into U.S. law a principle more closely associated with
those repressive regimes: a right to insist on the removal of content
from the global Internet, regardless of where it may have originated or
be located, in service of the exigencies of domestic law.--http://boingboing.net/2011/12/19/law-professors-explain-whats.html
On the EURO Crisis:
"Mayhem. Catastrophe. Apocalypse. Chaos. A hail of brimstone. The end of
the (consumerist) world. Years of misery … And that's just the more
optimistic parts of the media, as they contemplate the breakup of the
eurozone. Politicians wring their hands as they contemplate the changing
world of ever-lower expectations.--http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/dec/04/eurosceptics-beware-euro-crisis
