  6. DLF: Cocaine is a money maker; it takes a lot of money to keep this type of system going . . . with the added advantage of hooking the poor, throwing them in jail and providing slave labor

  7. On the bright side, while they know everything about the people, the people are revealing and making everything available for them to consider – like ideas for building a more egalitarian, fair and peaceful world. How’s that for optimism – or should that be “rose-colored glasses”. How are you, David. Never asked you what your three or four top-rated websites were (besides Dandelion Salad of course 🙂 ). In the past you’ve left great website links, so always looking for high quality sources… Thanks.

    • Woah, hi Jerry, tough question! You’ve already cited so many essential websites already.

      I’d have to rate academia.edu pretty highly because it provides so much stimulating info through their personalised scholarly data-newsfeed (tailored to one’s preferred research topics…) you don’t need to be formally affiliated, I’m now an independent doctoral researcher with about 80 odd topics I can access…

      Mongabay is good.

      ISIS ~ the real one! Mae-Wan Ho’s Institute for Science In Society, terrific site, always on message.

      Polly Higgins http://eradicatingecocide.com/ probably top of my “first strike” list.

      Joanna Harcourt-Smith sometimes has some very interesting interviews on her http://www.futureprimitive.org/

      I’m active in our UK Campaign for Real Farming, but in the States you’ve got the Greenhorns who are great & so many others, all the radical food movement , bioneer folk. Geoff Lawton’s stuff is always inspired.

      Top Documentary Films, often worthwhile ~ & don’t forget the NFB (Canada…)

      Can you get BBC Radio 4 in the US? They broadcast really fine radio on a continuing basis, ‘tho beware the propaganda traps! BBC World Service Radio is sometimes the best option abroad.

      It’s impossible to tease them all out really, more like clusters of interest that feed off one another…Mint Press, Al Monitor ~ we’re actually spoiled for choice when one stops and considers the proliferating options.

      The net is such a cornucopia of possibilities now, best to follow our individual inclinations, navigate around and perhaps compare notes when we strike gold ~ not very helpful perhaps but, all I can think of right this moment…!

      I’m very impressed with Bob Scheer’s analysis, excellent.

  8. Yippee…open source or open season? Seems like no matter what we come up with, someone’s going to try to corrupt it. In fact it’s guaranteed.

    However….when “representative” or “legitimate” governments become agencies of deliberate malfeasance, that is to say, intentional participants in immoral, fundamentally dishonest, oppressive and extortionist behaviour, then we have entered another world altogether.

    Of course, some would say, it’s always been a gangster world. Only the toughest survive. Fight or flight.

    You know it makes me wonder ~ what is the actual role of cocaine in this delirious dervish dance into the catacombs of political darkness?
