Once upon a time many, many years ago, when I was growing up, I saw actual news reports on that latest invention called television. It is true that I knew a lot of it was propaganda because I had a socialist father, who explained to me the real causes of world events and that great myths about the evils of socialism and other things were being created by the media. It was the age of Joe McCarthy, who was finding communist sympathizers everywhere and forced many brilliant Hollywood writers to flee the country.

We were cheering in the streets,
With our children at our feet,
And we thought our worshiped morals all had won.
But the men who spurred us on
Still control what’s going on.
They decide and politicians sing the song.

We thought we’d started a new revolution,
Revived what’s left of our torn constitution,
Cried with joy on that November night,
But in the clear light of day,
It’s just like yesterday,
So now we’re down on our knees to say,
We DID get fooled again,
DID get fooled again.

Knesset [Israeli Parliament] speaker: Jabotinsky relevant today

by Amnon Meranda, Ynetnews, 22 July 2009

“ [Zionist leader Jabotinsky] dreamed of a Jewish state on the whole territory of the Land of Israel on both sides of the Jordan [River]. This dream, in my eyes, was too big for us” […] [said Israeli President Peres].

Knesset [Israeli Parliament] Speaker Reuven Rivlin said in response […] “Jabotinsky was not wrong, Mr. President. He is relevant today more than any other time in our nation’s history.”

Antifascist Calling… – 2009-07-26

The dystopian British sci-fi film 28 Days Later opens with animal rights activists breaking into the Cambridge Primate Research facility to free chimpanzees used in a secret weapons program.

Terrified by the intrusion, a scientist warns the raiders that the chimps are infected with a genetically-modified pathogen. Ignoring his admonition, the chimps are let loose from their cages and immediately attack everyone in sight, unleashing a plague of unimaginable proportions.

Despite the film’s fanciful scenario (with animal rights’ campaigners clearly focused in the cross-hairs) this grim, cautionary tale does contain a kernel of truth. While marauding gangs of flesh-eating zombies haven’t invaded our cities, a subtler threat looms on the horizon.
