The Dreamslayers & the Internet

by : Jim Kirwan
Saturday July 15, 2006 - 02:11

by Jim Kirwan

Unregulated Capitalism is a continuing crime that has enabled most of what passes for commerce today.

The latest and perhaps most serious attempt to regulate those of us who challenge these behemoths of commerce and industry; is the pending legislation that seeks total control over who can use the world-wide web. If these people have their way, the internet will become a toll-road with diamond lanes for them and the backroads of lengthy delays for the rest of America. If these multi-national interests get what they want, the money will virtually own the right of total control, over what gets downloaded, as well as who can download what.

The ostensible reason for trying to establish this new regulation over the formally free internet, is to hand over the ability to broadcast television images on the web - mainly to yuppies to watch their corrupted media broadcasts of “The their form of news” on private little phone screens. This will be costly for the internet providers but by creating these new rules, the money crowd can both get what they want (and who they want to reach) by taxing everyone else for the costs of that ‘new access’. Of course in that bargain they will eliminate all those truly troublesome sites that insist on reporting what’s really going on in the USA and in the world. All of this is being floated though the houses of congress as an ‘absolutely necessary’ measure to modernize and regulate something that is The-Last-Best-Hope-for-Humankind.

Since there have been nation states in the world, capitalism has largely been what has allowed those states to become viable. However whenever capitalism is treated as a religion-with unfettered access to anything they might want to do-that path has always led directly to disaster. Sometime well back in time The Fairness Doctrine for broadcasters was eliminated: thus discarding the need for any broadcast medium to balance whatever they chose to report. This permanently skewed the ‘playing field’ in favor of those with the money, and direct access to government regulators. This also insured that their piece of the public’s airwaves could not be contaminated by anything that might challenge the views that these captains of media and entertainment wanted to spread. The only avenue still standing that serves to prevent their total control over America is the World Wide Web. So for Congress to punish Americans by crushing public access on the web, and allowing only the most powerful to dictate terms to the rest of us - Congress shall be responsible for killing freedom of speech and information in the USA - if they pass this pending legislation.

Let’s go back, in order to understand what happened to “the public’s right to know.” When the Bill of Rights was written the scope or reach of information technology was not even a dream. But the principle the founders were trying to protect was the right of the public to be informed. The only level playing field on which that is even remotely possible today - is the Internet. ‘Information’ is and has always been POWER. To deny the public access to the information that is needed to make sound and meaningful choices - means that in effect the public will be confined to the current mass media which is wholly owned by the same people that are funding the problems and the crimes that are bringing the world to the brink of global war.

The other aspect in the ‘selling of these new rule changes for the internet’ is that capitalism must remain unfettered and free to do what it does best, which is business. Deregulation of corporate business practices is what unleashed unfettered capitalism, and than in turn bought us The New World Order! If Capital can demand de-regulation of all they choose to do - why then is’ regulation’ such a good idea for a forum that reaches the entire world, and allows that world to respond openly and fully on any subject?

Information or data is only that, if there is no context: and Context is what the web is all about. A story can be told and augmented with video clips, or interactive web sites that can actually provide much clearer images of whatever the topic might be. Precisely because of this capability; and the frequency with which the web has routinely challenged the lies and the completely fabricated excuses of governments around the planet-this is why the “too-powerful” are demanding the regulation of the web. If the public does not DEMAND and end to these continued attempts to silence any criticism of the corrupted pathways of the powerful; then congress can no longer hide behind the lie that they “didn’t know” what they were doing when they took on this question for “new revisions” that would kill what’s left of our resistance to tyranny.

According to those advocating for - “The Internet of the Future,” there is no precedent to show how well this will work because it has not been tried before. That’s a lie. There was an effort in San Francisco that was begun in 1988, to create a “Library of the Future.” This sad story starred the same cast of evil characters, who were seeking to make the kinds of profits now envisioned by those who want to own the web. And it’s all about the telecommunications applications as well as public use.

The story was printed in San Francisco FRONTLINES, in June of 1997. It was called High-Tech Barbarians at the Gates: The Plunder of the San Francisco Public Library. The relevance of that story here is that the entire battle with the current government over privatizing the internet can be seen in our mini-war with the San Francisco Public Library. This involved everything from the criminal misuse and abuse of the public’s money - to denial of public access. From the skewing of political and public interests, to specializing particular groups for inclusion or exclusion - based on their individual ability to pay - and all of that had been in the planning stages for ten years prior to the City Librarian’s wet dream of destruction and mega-profits for the same phone companies (then Pacific Bell, now AT&T) that are pushing for the "NEW" telecommunications reform act. That “ACT” will wipe out the public’s right to information and anything like an Alternative American Media! (1)

This “NEW Telecommunications Act” is also pivotal in another way. Money and Power are at the root of what most society’s value-and yet both (Money & Power) are dependent on critical information for their growth and their effectiveness. In a representative democracy, so much depends on everyone’s access to events as they happen, and to the extent possible, to knowledge about who pays for whatever is happening - so there must exist at least one place where “the playing field” is nearly level. That place today is the World Wide Web. The Net makes it possible to read and observe events from many different perspectives, and from a great variety of viewpoints. This allows the reader/viewer to decide what to search for, how far they may want to go to discover what they want to know - and on the web now - they can take advantage of as much information as they can process.

If the Telecommunications Act passes, then Multi-national Corporations and this Outlaw government of USA Incorporated shall become the crown rulers of the American form of the Internet. This action would inherently deny or severely cripple any site that publishes anything counter to the government or to the corporate view that those with the bulk of the money and the power now, seek to see dispensed - unchallenged! Currently, for a variety of reasons, the people who own the media now, along with publishing, entertainment and the arts are the same people who own the major controlling interests in much of everything that matters in American business, commerce, and government. It has taken over a hundred years for these changes in ownership and influence to arrive where they are today. Most of the key positions are now held by or are directly controlled by Jews. The Jews are not the only people in power, but many are there now and there can be no real question as to this fact. (2)

What matters in all of this, besides whether or not there is another global war, is that for a society to freely grow and prosper, many diverse people and interests need to be part of whatever is going on anywhere in this country or the world. No one group or cabal of individuals should obtain control over all that any society is trying to do-because that’s unhealthy for the nation as well as the great numbers of those who are not part of the upper classes (without the middle and the lower classes - no society can long survive).

There is one other pivotal point where everything comes together in a representative Republic: that place is in the separation of government from those that government was created to monitor and control. In the US that place was the Congress of the United States (where the laws are made and where “oversight” originates). Yet Congress now freely admits that for the last ten years they have relinquished their oversight responsibilities, when it comes to presidential actions. There is no question that they long ago gave up on regulating corporate interests, monopolies, or anti-trust laws: they just accept the bribes and let those they are supposed to regulate write the legislation for themselves - and then they rubber-stamp it all and move on to the next-big-thing!

But there’s an even more damning connection between money, power and information. That’s national election campaigns. The Supreme Court ruled quite a few years back, that corporations have a right to free speech (as if they were people). Then they added to that insult and made Money a legitimate tool of corporate free speech - so that MONEY could be given in unlimited amounts to campaigns (depending only on how they labeled what they chose to give). As an added bonus, most of that money raised in political campaigns tends to end up either in political bribes to individual politicians, or to the media campaigns which most of the money goes to pay for. This is “the best little investment in America.” Because the dividends that this kind of thoughtful giving yields, is something like at least a thousand to one.

Add to this, the fact that media is central to everything that Americans see, or think, or do - and you begin to see how important this controlling feature is; that there is more than one group controlling all of that information. The reason that all these happy coincidences of power, money and influence took so long to happen was that it took time to stack the courts, and coerce the congress to the extent that it currently will not tolerate anything that smacks of anything negative to do with Israel’s polices, or whatever that country might choose to do, supposedly to defend their country. It should be remembered that not everything that’s good for one country is by definition good for the other.

Besides the USA - Israel is the only other nation that gets away with doing exactly what they please, no UN resolutions matter to them, no international agreements have any standing in their world of global special-ness - in brief Israel has become a law unto itself: and god help anyone who ever challenges that in any way! In America today, there is still AIPAC, the American Israel Lobby which is a lobby for a foreign power, but which is still not registered as such. Congress should also be polled to see how many got what from Israel.

A large number of current officials within the exiting US government also have dual-passports, and had them long before they were appointed to key positions in the US government. People like the head of Homeland Security and key government advisors within the Pentagon and the US Department of State are also in that category. Most Americans might wonder why those positions could not have been filled with Americans citizens exclusively - because as it stands - this seems like a government conflict of interest in action. So The Dreamslayers exist, much as they have always existed; except that now they are about to destroy the internet, the worldwide web - and with it our way of life.(3) That can only happen if you allow business as usual to happen in congress, in the courts or in the administration. Americans used to be thought of as being ‘very creative people’ - isn’t it time that a lot more people began seriously to become “VERY CREATIVE” - in order to protect not just ourselves but the lives and futures of our children and our loved ones as well!

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
