CULTURE IN DECLINE – PETER JOSEPH


Click here to watch a brilliant short film by Peter Joseph, creator of the Zeitgeist movies.

In US election year, Peter sardonically examines American democracy and shows how the capitalist system controls our thoughts and actions so there are no real choices. He shows how puppet politicians are bankrolled by corporations and asks why we need these leaders at all. This is the same point I make in Womanifesto and we agree that modern leaders play the same role as kings, emperors and dictators did formerly.

For democracy to work, all citizens must be educated to understand the issues, yet critical thinking and logic are ignored and learning by rote is taught to millions. Joseph argues the US two party political system is a con – there is no real choice and all good change derives from pressure from below – not the Republican and Democratic parties.

He also shows how the big parties came together to set up and control the Presidential debates so killing intelligent discussion and stopping smaller parties getting airtime. This is exactly the same as in the UK and most other so-called democracies. Noam Chomsky has been saying this for years.

Even now as more and more species become extinct, the climate changes to who knows what and humanity teeters on the brink of disaster, most folk are more interested in inane celebrities, fashion and consumerism.

Peter also shows how religion creates an unthinking populace who do as they are told rather than questioning everything.

So if you care about the future, the ecosystem and your own minds – watch and engage with this film – what could be more important?


Battered and Bruised is Beautiful?


If this doesn’t upset you…

BroadBlogs

By Catherine Scott @ Ms. Magazine Blog

Treating women like dirt is hardly a new tactic for the fashion industry, with its long history of objectifying the female body, idealizing physically impossible beauty types and glamorizing violence against women. Bulgaria-based 12 magazine, however, has hit a new low with an inexplicable photo spread in its latest issue titled, “Victim of Beauty” [TRIGGER WARNING].

The six images are all close-up portraits of young, attractive white models sporting various gruesome injuries: one boasts a black eye, another a slit throat and a third sports a split lip and a bruised neck. Scrolling through this montage of burns, bruises and gashes, it’s easy to forget you’re looking at a “fashion” photo shoot; the images more closely resemble police files of horrendous domestic violence.

Were the magazine spread a deliberate attempt to raise awareness and generate conversation about our society’s failure to prevent…

THE WAR ON WOMEN Part 9978


Last year, an unprecedented number of laws have been passed across the US, all aimed at restricting abortion or reproductive rights.

But the fight goes far beyond the medical procedure, with Republican politicians even attacking the Obama administration for making contraception more readily available.

The US has seen more anti-abortion violence than any other country in the world. Since 1993, at least eight abortion providers, including four doctors have been killed. And there have been over 200 arsons and bombings against reproductive healthcare clinics since 1977.

Important info from Dear Kitty showing that when it comes to Creationist nonsense the Fundamentalist Christians don’t have all the bullshit – Islam, Hinduism and Judaism want a piece of the action as well…

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA says about itself:

Two Creationists take home schooled kids on a tour of a natural history museum filling their minds with Young Earth Creationist Bullshit.

25 June 2011.

On a world scale, the most important opposition to evolution biological science comes from Christian creationists; who are influential especially in the economically and militarily most powerful country of the world, the USA. They claim to draw the only correct conclusions from the comparatively long and detailed creation narrative in the Bible book Genesis.

Less importantly, there is opposition to evolution science from within other religions. In Hinduism, eg, the Hare Krishna organization attacks the “materialistic” theories of Charles Darwin and later biologists. This is not that surprising, as the Hare Krishna organization is rather extreme within Hinduism. The organization developed at first not in India, but in the USA, with influences from US American fundamentalist…

We just watched a nice little film entitled: “Why I am no longer a Creationist” it’s the second film in the series. the first was: “Why I am no longer a Christian”

This is what the author has to say: I’m no longer a creationist or a Christian… these videos are some of the reasons why. I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this stuff because my family and friends are all fundamental Christians like I was… so I thought this may be a good way to start discussions and be able to finally get it all out there.

There are many well-meaning creationists who have just been misinformed. It takes a good deal of time to come to a thorough understanding of a major scientific theory; and many just don’t have the luxury of investing enough. They often become the unwitting victims of a few charlatans, and of their own confirmation bias.

It is the evangelical creationist leaders who are the main targets of my criticism. These men and women either should know better; or they are deliberately lying.

In a rare moment of sense, the Department for Education has revised its model funding agreement, allowing the education secretary to withdraw cash from schools that fail to meet strict criteria relating to what they teach.

Under the new agreement, funding will be withdrawn for any free school that teaches what it claims are “evidence-based views or theories” that run “contrary to established scientific and/or historical evidence and explanations”.

The British Humanist Association (BHA), which has led a campaign against creationism – the movement that denies Darwinian evolution and claims that the Earth and all its life was created by God – described the move as “highly significant” and predicted that it would have implications for other  British Humanist Association looking to run schools.

CHRISTIAN ALTAR WHINE


Don’t you just love it when Christians get on their high horse and proclaim,

“But I’m not that kind of Christian…”

Those of us who don’t believe your story don’t give a feather or a fig about your doctrinal ravings. We’re not interested in the silly details that distinguish you from the next sect or cult. Those things only matter to you. 

And, if you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and holds the Key to Everlasting Life, then why not get his name right for once?

Jesus is the Roman version – remember the folks you claim nailed him up? The actual Jewish name is Yeheshua or something – imagine that – Christians claim life, the universe and everything is about this one bloke then get his name wrong.

Religions in Scotland Attack Loving Relationships


In the face of intense pressure from not only the Catholic church but also Muslim organisations and evangelical and presbyterian churches, the Scottish government has continued with its plan to legalise marriage for same sex couples. A draft bill is to be published later this year.

Opinion polls have shown that about two-thirds of Scots are in favour of the changes.

GOP: Hurricane Isaac A Message From God

As journalists nationwide are connecting the dots of dumbness regarding Todd Akin’s connection to Lyin’ Paul Ryan and Mike Huckabee, something important, something directly from God Almighty to the Republican Party, is on its way: Hurricane Isaac.

Yes, just as a mighty preacher named Pat Robertson proclaimed that Hurricane Katrina was a message from God Almighty that America was going down because of gays and Liberals, I am here to proclaim that, because the Republican Party has conducted a war against women, God Almighty has sent Hurricane Isaac to disrupt their all-but-holy convention in a city ironically named Tampa.

And Mike Huckabee, champion of Christian bigotry, is slated to open, well, let’s just call it “the blow-out in Tampa”.

Huckabee has been right out in front regarding Todd Akin’s stunningly idiotic remarks about so-called legitimate rape and its…

Whoever Controls Reproduction Controls the Future


I owe a great intellectual debt to my partner Sooz. She correctly identified REPRODUCTION as the key battleground in this crucial stage of human affairs.

When we look at the issues facing us at present, several interconnected problems loom large; Overpopulation, Anthropogenic Climate Change, War and Crazy Religions all threaten all life on this amazing planet.

And all these factors are related to human reproduction.

When women have full control of their own fertility, overpopulation will become a thing of the past. All evidence shows that birthrates drop when women are empowered.

Climate change is due to the unfettered growth in human numbers, industry and transport. When there are less people there will be less CO2 released into the atmosphere due to a reduction in the rearing of livestock for food and agriculture, less manufacturing of useless articles for profit for the few, less transport leading to more area for forests and wildlife.

War is almost always caused by men, usually for power and control of resources. The factors mentioned above are likely to lead to more and deadlier conflict. When there are less people there will be reduced pressure on the environment and more space.

Clearly we need to get men out of positions of power so they can’t start wars.

Nation states are also responsible for wars so the sooner we move on from this outmoded system of organisation the better.

The ‘Us and Them’ mentality is part and parcel of this medieval mindset and must be left behind if we  want a future.

Finally, Crazy Religions provide the justification for all of the above. All the major religions are made by men for men. They are all misogynist and have led to the infantile mental states suffered by many of our fellow humans. They lay a death wish on humanity while they pretend to offer eternal life.

Even now, as the ecosystem struggles to cope with the pollution and poisons emitted by our insane industrial production, as the oceans are dying and we are witnessing the largest extinction event ever – at this very moment – male (and some female) nutters try to restrict abortion and deny women reproductive rights.

If I believed in a supernatural world I would say religions are the Devil incarnate. But happily I know there is no God or Devil therefore our problems are wholly caused by us.

So this means we humans can turn around this terrible state of affairs. We have the power – we can do it. 

But we have to let women manage human affairs before it’s too late. As my American sisters and brothers might say, “We’re drinking in the Last Chance Saloon”

That is why we’re calling for a paradigm shift in human thinking and saying the Future must be Female.

Otherwise there will be no future for us all.

Religions must die so humanaity can live.

Let’s take the fight to the religions – let’s win the war for the future.


Let’s Celebrate Abortion and Fuck Religion


Jennifer Mason, crazy person and communications director for Personhood USA, said: “Personhood USA does not endorse political candidates, but we had hoped that Congressman Ryan would be a good influence on Governor Romney, considering Romney’s liberal abortion record.”

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/aug/22/paul-ryan-republican-abortion-row

Mason added: “Reading today that babies conceived in rape should suffer the death penalty (my emphasis) under a Romney-Ryan administration is extremely concerning, and indicates that congressman Ryan’s pro-woman and pro-baby positions would have little influence if he wins the office of vice president of the US.”

Do these people campaign against the real death penalty? Of course not; their ideas are dangerous and ignorant – they have no morals but act holier-than-everybody-else.

Personhood is a ridiculous concept, but then that’s what defines “People of Faith” – they believe nonsense every day. they thrive on it – they love nonsense. Here’s a few examples; Virgin Birth, 3-in-1 God, Heaven, Hell, GOP, Armageddon, Transubstantiation, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Scientology, Mormonism, LDS,

What we need are more abortions, more contraception of all kinds and an awareness that human overpopulation will destroy the ecosystem for all life.

And to achieve this we need to work together to make religions a thing of the past like cannibalism, incest and forced marriages.

So decent folks everywhere – please argue for contraception – support women’s rights to abortion when they want it and oppose religion at every turn.

Educate your friends that religion and children do not mix.

Romney and Ryan – Best Advert for Abortion – Ever!


Romney and Ryan have both staked out staunchly conservative positions on abortion. Ryan, who is Catholic, opposes abortion except when the life of the mother is at risk. Romney believes in additional exceptions for rape and incest.

One of the bills Ryan cosponsored would define human life as beginning at the moment of fertilization — a far-reaching approach that could limit access to contraception and procedures like in vitro fertilization. It’s similar to the “personhood” approach, which voters in deeply conservative Mississippi rejected last November. The Hill
