Newspeak!


George Orwell's newspeak is here, as illustrated by an Arizona representative's efforts to pass two new acts of state legislation that dictate what can and cannot be said in university classrooms:
Bob Christie. 2017, . Arizona Legislation Targets Lawbreaking Universities, Proposes Ethnic Studies Ban. NBC, Available, http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/national-international/Arizona-Lawmaker-Targets-Lawbreaking-Universities-and-Colleges-410679135.html

A new proposal would penalize colleges and universities that violate state law will be penalized with the loss of 10 percent of state funding….

[ Rep. Bob Thorpe of Flagstaff] … is also proposing legislation, H.B. 2120, to expand a state ban on ethnic studies programs in K-12 schools to colleges and universities. Violations also come with a 10 percent funding penalty.
3 years ago I would have said that this legislation had no way of passing. Today I am not sure. The online alternative right attack against "liberal" academics has been escalating at an alarming rate. For example, ZeroHedge has been inciting rage against said liberal academics with increasing numbers of stories.

I expect that soon there will be vicious acts of violence targeted at leftwing academics who attract the ire of the alt right by rejecting efforts to limit their speech and inquiry through the requirements of newspeak.


As I've written before at this blog, I always envisioned our dystopic future in terms of Huxley's Brave New World wherein resistance had been scientifically engineered out of the society.

Orwell's 1984 seemed too crudely authoritarian when contrasted with the subtleties of Huxley's Brave New World.

(for an interesting but brief discussion of these competing views of power see https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/01/huxley-to-orwell-my-dystopia-is-better-than-yours/508769/ ).

Yet, in my research on liberal societies, published in a 3 book series (first book here) - I discovered that liberal democracies are indeed vital feeding grounds for authoritarian leaders, particularly when charismatic and enabled by the legislative and judicial support of executive power.

Many observers have noted that power has become centralized in the US Executive branch of government. The conditions are right for further erosion of the conditions of possibility for liberal democracy, including free speech, due process, and the right to pursue happinesss.

  1. There are so many flavors of liberal or liberalism presently that a good definition of liberal is hard to come by. If the Clintons are liberal, then I am definitely not a liberal; the same goes for the Obamas. Jimmy Carter was someone I could support. He had his flaws; but he was identifiably liberal. Just as Reagan was identifiably conservative. Some of Nixon's actions even made him partly liberal. We have libertarians and we have communitarians and procedural liberals as well as egalitarian liberals. I am completely against PC and apparently those liberals calling for the imprisonment of climate change deniers. Actually liberals seem to have moved in a totalitarian direction since the '90s. When a college professor calls for white genocide do we call him a liberal? I am traditionalist enough to regard bathrooms as places for people who share a biological sexual similarity. And I voted for Donald Trump. Trump is essentially liberal by my definition. Hillary is hard to place but hillbilly seems close--due to Bill's influence though otherwise some sort of cultural Marxist. But the above is all unpolished reflections based on current local material. So who knows what the right words are now? It looks to me like an over zealous interpretation of the separation of church and state has resulted in chaos. Racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, etc. all seem designed to keep conflict and aggravation alive; and are producing the opposite of their apparent intention. Etc. Finally I am very glad to hear that Bernie Sanders is acting like an adult and will attend the Inauguration. It is a national shame that he was cheated out of the presidential candidacy!
    Would Donal Trump be warmly embraced by the liberals if he had no intention of improving the economy, wanted war with Russia, praised BLM and asked Soros to be one of his advisers? I kinda suspect that would be the case!

    1. By "liberal" I was referring to the philosophical and institutional foundations of liberal democratic society: e.g., philosophies of John Locke, Adam Smith, Rousseau, etc.

      Liberal democratic society is based in the idea of natural rights that are constitutionally enshrined.

    2. I am aware of liberal in that sense, but doubt most modern liberals would even know who John Locke was or Adam Smith. Most likely they would search their biographies for something to criticize them for. Well, they all clearly had white privileged and spoke English. Interestingly Richard Nixon thought those interested in politics should spend five or six hours a day reading. He was one of the best read of the American presidents. It was apparently hard to find a serious book he had not read--ancient or modern. He also recommended serious thought and reflection; all of this was in vogue when I attended university.
      There is a danger that the Internet will become a super TV that will destroy what vaccines and bad food leave intact. Let us hope not.

    3. Richard Nixon had an enemies list. Richard Nixon totally lied about getting out of Vietnam. Richard Nixon did start the epa to his credit but it was when the united states was on the verge of revolution from Nixon bombing Laos. Cambodia Vietnam into the stone age. Richard Nixon created the epa because people were burning him in effigy over agent orange, love canal, shooting down innocent college students in Ohio, his fascist war on drugs and everything else in america. Richard Nixon also wanted to build 1000 nuclear reactors in the United states by 1980. Now there was an evil bastard and authoritarian devil if I have ever seen one.

    6. Richard Nixon said he wanted energy indepence in the us by 1980. He said a thousand nuclear power plants should be constructed. He later revised the that plan to 1000 nuclear power plants created by 2000. He did at some point say a thousand nuclear reactors plants by 1980 to have energy independence in the united states.

    8. Hey asshole if people who have put their lives and livelihoods up against nuclear for years had not done so, there would have been a Fukushima daiichi or Chernobyl in the united states by now.

      There was three mile island in the late seventies. A major nuclear meltdown that was largely covered up. There were open air nuclear bombs in Japan the pacific from 1945 on.

      In the late 1970s hundreds of thousands of activists picketed jimmy carters white house to stop nuclear reactor construction in the us. They significantly slowed Richard Nixon's dream or building a thousand reactors and probably saved your fat lying butt billy.. Dangerous reactors were still left functioning and many dangerous reactors were built but not a thousand of them.

      Tiny france has 50 nuclear reactors, so does tiny Japan asshole. Tiny tiny s Korea has 25 reactors. It would have been more than easy for the nuclear psychopaths in the United states to build reactors till a catastrophe happened but they were signicantly slowed down by antinuclear activists in the late 1970s and 1980s. They still are and still want to.

      We all know that, yet propagandists like william st George don't want us to print the truth about it. I can only say William is a paid propaganist or a psychopath or Both. Every time someone starts to print the truth about nuclear, creepy crawlers come out of the wood work and try to weakly attack the truth or start in by distracting with some political ideology that somehow justifies nuclear genocide in their mean little pin heads.

  3. "Since mankind's dawn, a handful of oppressors have
    accepted the responsibility over our lives that we should have accepted for ourselves. By doing so, they took our power. By doing nothing, we gave it away. We've seen where their way leads, through camps and wars,right wing death squads towards the slaughterhouse."

    1. Altright people advocating forced labor of teenagers busted for marijuana to clean up nuclear waste and superfund sites. I have seen this being advocated on the internet and in altright journals recently.

    Homeless people, people victimized by the mafia, people who are poor and have minor trouble with the law are currently being forced to work in fukushima. These people are loaded up in buses in slums arounf toko and yokohama. The forced laborers face jail, execution by the yakuza or homelessness and starvation if they will not work in Fukushima. The Nazi Germans used a lot of forced labor at the end of ww2. The maiden regime, in the Ukraine, currently goes through the countryside and grabs young people from small villages. The maiden paramilitaries use the excuse that the people they arrest might be sympathetic to the Russians. The maiden units then mpress the young people into forced labor camps.

    The same for poor people convicted of minor crimes or said to be unpatriotic in the Ukraine and Belarus.I have seen altright people say that people should be used as forced labor in the us if they are useless eaters.

    2. Altright people are advocating for enforcing their version of political correctness at the end of a gun. They wanna do it at the end of the barrel of a gun and through ruthless victimization and lies as they are trying to do in a small town in Montana.

    As Majia and Chris Hedges say advocacy for violence against academics is beginning in the altright
    "The online alternative right attack against "liberal" academics has been escalating at an alarming rate. For example, ZeroHedge has been inciting rage against said liberal academics with increasing numbers of stories."

    3. The final phase will be the complete obliteration of the middle class like in places like Chile, Franco Spain, other Latin american counties. Our Forefather's like Ben Franklyn strongly advocated for and national post office system. Ben Franklyn and Horace Mann lobbied hard for public education. They worked hard for public libraries yet the alt right hates this.
    Scott Walker, in Wisconsin, is dismantling public education. Walker and all altrights want no public spaces or a national Postal system. These are the things that have maintained a middle class in america.

    The last step of the altright will be blackmask squads and rightwing death squads, as they have and still do, have in places like Argentina and Brazil. Absolutely no due process of law. Thugs knocking on peoples doors in the night, only for those people to never be heard from or seen again. That is already here with huge mercenary private security security people policing our communities now. Altright hates humanists. They hate people with democratic and humanitarian propensities.

    1. Your dark vision of the future might make a readable novel, but it strikes me as highly unlikely as an American reality. Liberal academics have drawn a lot of negative attention by making truly stupid remarks and holding even stupider opinions on a variety of things. The worst thing going on in academia though is the attacks on professors for expressing opinions that the board of trustees does not like. Academic freedom seems a thing of the past. And universities have come to support a lot of worthless classes while neglecting those that are important. This is the result of the '60's hippie delusions and illusions. A good example of the silliness of academia is Halloween--at Yale the to do over what one could and could not wear. Apparently reading is no longer regarded as important, especially old books that do not address PC topics. I am not sure a degree from an American university now is worth what it costs in terms of money and time. However, I am not sure I have ever met or come across any altright individuals in my travels on this planet. Muslims and ISIS represent a far greater and real threat as one is a backsliding apostate Muslim unless on either takes up jihad or supports it materially. Karen Armstrong's books need a lot of tempering by Robert Spencer's. The USA is unique to the point where drawing parallels with other nations generally distorts the reality. America is a hard place to predict. Should the US economy begin thriving, should world peace obtain, should America get much needed infrastructure, etc. I am sure those opposing this, some Democrats and liberals, will find a way to survive until another dismal phase comes along.

It looks to me like Communism failed; I believe Lenin realized this before he died. I don't think American academics are being shot presently--but you seem to have some kind of esoteric inside connections so maybe that news is being suppressed.

    "Andrew Anglin runs the website The Daily Stormer.

    Earlier in early January he the threatened to organize an armed march through Whitefish, Montana, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.. He was calling the march James Earl Ray day, after the man who assassinated MLK, Jr.

    Anglin said the march was against Jews, Jewish businesses, and those who support them. The march was to be in response to what he perceived as threats against Richard Spencer's mother, a Whitefish resident. Spencer is the leader of the alt-right movement, and gained notoriety of late due to his annual alt-right conference in Washington, D.C., where he inspired followers to break into Nazi-like salutes."

    " Fucktard liberal race traitors help the cause and should kill themselves."

    Yes zero hedge is fueling the fire of racial hatred and threatening college academics. There are Idiots at enenews who call themselves nuclear social justice advocates openly make fun of antinuclear college students they call snowflakes and antinuclear social justice warrior college kids they mock as sjws. The irony and hippocracy is sickening. The people who pull that sort of crap are brainwashed zealots who are not really antinuclear, or who are cutting off their nose to spite their face or they are just demented stupid old farts. Perhaps they are all three. Maybe they have some astroturfing thing going on.

If she got fired it was nothing to do with this article I am sure. Zero Hedge thank God is not WP or NYT. If you had been around in Buddha's time you would have characterized him as the day's Hitler.

  7. There is a quote from stock and jebus a couple of weeks ago where they advocate using people from jail to cleanup Hanford and the radioactive dump in st Louis. It made my stomach turn having seen racist rants on enenews. If the kids these people are calling snowflakes and sjrs are protesting nuclear why would anyone from enenews or anywhere else demonize them so much. When they do start impressing poor people and prisoners and people deemed socially unacceptable to do forced labor to clean up nuclear sites is when I will leave this country. Yet that is how nasty the rhetoric is getting. If Jim Kunstlers so called "Hand made world" fantasy ever came about from an economic crash, there would be no one to make sure that the thousands of tons of uranium zirconium rods stored in water tanks around the country are properly cooled. The tanks would dry up and thousands of tons of high level nuclear waste would catch fire around the country.

    The people like kunstler, st George, stock, jebus and ast would not be red baiting Jill stein and calling her a snowflake communist. They would not be villainizing young people who supported Jill stein and Bernie sanders and calling them snowflakes and swjs and communists. I'm sorry if this offends you majia and I will not comment on your blog anymore. Their are Many people who have risked their livelihoods and lives for many years to try to do something about nuclear.

    Hillary Clinton and Donald trump were not the only candidates in this election. Yet that is all I hear about on your site till now mania. Trump and hillary. I know quite well what some of the most significant ideals founding fathers were. Thomas Jefferson and john Adams were unitarians and secular humanists. Benjamin franklin and Horace Mann supported the commons. They supported public education, the supported due process, they supported a national post office an public libraries. they supported a republican for of democracy that we do not even come close to having anymore. We have hard core corporotists who totally control things now and the shell of a neoconservative neoliberal corporate entity that could care less about liberal democracy. For you or st George to say otherwise is pure nonsense. If you want to show how democratic and free speech oriented you are mania go ahead and cut this reply as you have cut my replies in the past.

I think she may have been a red dipper baby. Communism did not work, harmed millions of people, and Cultural Marxism is the same thing being smuggled back in by stealth--though it too is failing. I have never wasted my time condemning mad political philosophies--but I am aware when they show up in disguise.

    3. I guess to William greens are communists, though they consider themselves more like social democrats. Jill Stein does not call herself a communist. The new president of Austria is a Green. he was democratically elected. He does not in any way consider himself a communist. He soes not want any nuclear waste, nuclear weapons, or nuclear power plants in or around his cpuntry. I guess to William that means the president of Austria is a communist.

      Its not illegal to call oneself a communist or socialist in The United states, or any pariamentarian democracies I know of William. Not in Mexico either. It is not even against the law to call oneself a national socialist in america as long as ya don't lynch any person who says he is a communist, or a gay or Hispanic person. Yet that's what a lot of National Socialists and commie haters like William advocate.

  8. Its amusing about kunstler. He talked about Fukushima and what a horrible catastrophe it was for two years. Then when he started talking about how essential nuclear is for Israel and Japan people criticised him so he cut all those critics out. He stopped talking about what a horror the nuclear catastrophe is. I am quite sure the realization that there is no turning back from the nuclear nightmare and its ramifications do not jive with his fantasy of a hand made world in a post peak oil society. So he goes on and on like zerohedge does villifying green supporters and antinuclear candidates as snowflakes and social justice warrior Marxists. It is sad how cynnical and unrealistic the so called alternative media and some of their talking heads have become. It is sad that this is all a game to a lot of people PR some sort of personal power ego trip. There are evacuuee kids from fukushima in Tokyo and Yokohama who are being bullied and called germs because they had the misfortune of being from Fukushima. These kids government wants them to be returned to an exclusion zone that is far worse than the Chernobyl exclusion zone ever was. There are people and kids in the united states forced to live in and around some of the most radioactive hazard sites in the world. I'll bet if someone said your 19 to 23 year old kid could or should be impressed to clean up an extremely radioactive site like Hanford or Fukushima it would strike a chord with you majia or st George. If someone threateningly threatened your kid or yourself derogatorily as a worthless communinist snowflake or sjw you would not like it one bit.

Regarding insults you do seem quite into making them, so I assume insulting your many enemies is an important even vital part of your life. Insulting is an activity that is certainly not enjoyable; it requires fear and its offspring anger to begin with and then the perhaps careful selection for the occasion of the right insult. As I mentioned elsewhere your insults seem rather stale and unoriginal as though this stage of the process has been neglected by you due to possibly a hasty disposition. As a bit of advise I would work on producing better insults. Reading might help. Try some Rabelais. With some research you might locate some of the all time greats at this art. It is you must admit an art in decline. Might it be your destiny to revive it to a more majestic place?

  16. One hundred years ago Woodrow Wilson was waiting to be Inaugurated for the second time which would be in March I think. Lacking the right books I can not say what his Inauguration was like, but I imagine it was fairly solemn and decorous. At least in America people tended to behave quite well during public events. At the same time in Russia the Bolshevik Revolution was in waiting. Alan Moorehead's history of the event(1958)is a good read. I do not think this Friday will see something rising to that level and probably many who felt brave two months ago are now finding good reasons to stay home--not a bad idea. As I mentioned before the USA is not like any other nation. Americans are not inclined to collectivism though the urban areas are perhaps so inclined to some extent. Crowding? Because the West rejects the idea of souls developing over many lifetimes it is quite difficult to make sense out of what is going on. One virtue the USA has is the idea of each person making their own decisions and reaping the benefits or mistakes that come thereby. Independent, self reliant and resourceful individuals. I guess this idea seems threatening to most urbanites. In any case I do find the current "plans" for the Trump Inauguration unsettling. I am not happy at the level of disruption getting expressed by people who should be glad they live here and not in China or southeast Asia. Or Latin America. People might want to count their blessings for a change. My hunch is that the average American home with TV blaring and junk food is producing weak people who then find themselves with a mental illness and start taking a psychiatric drug. Lost souls. If someone were to try to turn this drift around it would create an enormous upheaval which may be what we are currently witnessing.
    While Jill Stein is clearly an intelligent woman she is also fairly conventional. Medically she is hardly on the fringe. I am not sure how environmentalists should proceed. However, the value of throwing fits is limited. More education and more gifted presenters. I am genuinely not sure what can be done about Fukushima especially with the Japanese gov standing in the way. Russia's offer to help was rejected. So . . . what is the average person supposed to do?

  17. Demonstrations and protests. The Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh believes that the anti-war protests actually had the effect of perpetuating the Vietnam war. The attempt to shut down the Inauguration will only strengthen the resolve of the Government, not weaken it. Project Veritas has a two part series out now on their undercover work. Worth watching on YouTube. What does opposing violence with violence usually produce? Whether it is physical or mental? Currently many black leaders are simply making fools of themselves but repeating things from CNN. And by presenting distorted history. Anti-fascists want to gas people! We are witnessing mass man experiencing psychotic moments based on false reporting and many mental distortions.
    Clearly American universities have been fertile ground for some bizarre statements and events. A highly developed intellect is not equivalent to a high moral sense. The intellect is only one part of a person; and an intellect divorced from feeling which is not uncommon results in strange persons. As has been pointed out reason is a good servant but a bad master. What percentage of college professors are really well balanced and decent people? As for the alt right I have trouble locating any special group that merits that label. Are we talking about groups in Idaho? White supremacists of whom I have never come across one in my life? Evangelicals? The alt right is a very vague notion; just as liberal has become. None of these words work well anymore. I am sure there are well taught courses on ethnic studies and women studies as well as those that are largely nonsense. However, unlike with mathematics it may be difficult to know what is true and what is imagination. My experience as an adult with professors has been that they tend to be arrogant and at the same time insecure. I have known quite a few working in a university library as a director. Of course some were fine people. So it is probably a toss up as those regarded as alt right are like those regarded as liberal when good people and when bad people. For example I know a recent recipient of a PhD in physics who agrees with global warming which I think is a political contrivance but regards Fukushima as taken care of.

  18. Liberal Democracy? Freedoms have been draining out of Europe for years. Watch what you say in Germany or France about the Holocaust. And now what you say or publish about Islam. Europe has a number of sacred cows. If the liberals in America had their way we would have hate speech laws. Even self defense has become a questionable right. The greater good may dictate rape or even death as a necessary element. Utilitarianism is a mirage of happiness! Unfortunately emphasizing victimhood ends by restricting freedoms. So a society of weak people will become one living under a social tyranny. Still the USA has a good Bill of Rights. I believe Hillary was after restricting the First Amendment. I do not think the Davos Elite or the Bilderberg Elite care even a little bit about liberal democracy. Biden's whole recent speech in Switzerland is based on lies . . .
    Actually I think it is the Left which is liberalism's greatest enemy now. The Right is sold on the Constitution which includes a Bill of Rights. Socialism despite having some nice features ends up restricting rights. Sweden and England have both been condemned by the UN for their treatment of Assange. I am guessing that the Trump Admin will ignore Assange. I hope so. Glad Manning is getting out though why wait until May? Needs a little more punishment?

    1. There are a number of lefts. One seems to be serving the Elite--Hollywood, Wall Street, the malevolent Oligarchs (there is no way to avoid Oligarch so it is important to chose those that are benevolent)--George Soros, even Pope Francis, the Jesuit, attacks on the 2nd Amendment as well as well as the First. I don't see you as a member of that left, but you need to keep your job and thus you have to bend a bit here and there . . . I personally don't care much for rich people. The cast off's are generally nicer. I favor people who adopt stray dogs, treat cats well (just read about the CIA torturing cats), prefer wide open spaces,deserts, etc. Why are the left now fawning over the Intelligence Agencies?

    2. I think I could fall in with the affirmative liberals like George Kateb and Martha Nussbaum. A transcendental liberalism. There is very little of the tribal in me. Mystical solitude appeals. Now Europe for a while got to a nice place but now the barbarians Muslim hoards are there. Forget the moderate Muslims if such really exist and are not simply backsliders, there are millions of rabid Jihadists ready to shred European life. Merkel is certainly not a liberal. The EU is some kind of tricky authoritarian state. Brexit is a smart move. England is too old to fall into the Continental abyss that has produced so many horrifying wars. Anyway affirmative liberalism is attractive.

  20. The corporations and billionaire like the koches have worked for fifty years to move american politics to the right as far as possible. They show an unprecedented disdain for the liberal democratic principles our forefathers envisioned for The United States. They actually despise any sort of real democratic processes left in this country and consider the middle classes and working classes disposable. The only thing left to oppose them was the shell of a neoconservative neoliberal party that has totally disgraced itselfs with its appalingly stupid accusations that the russians interfered with hillary clintons election.

    There is no oppostion to authoritarian rule in america any more. People will go to paying 300 to a thousand dollars for an office visit to a doctor here. People with prior conditions will simply not qualify for medical care period in the united states.
    Many white working class people felt they had no alternative outside of trump and since trump and the altright went all in for blaming the countries problems on nonwhites, queers, and liberals, the white working classes have gone hogwild for their own brand of identity politics.
    Yes you can find alrtright people on any street corner of america, on any bus, in many churches and you know you are being disingenuous as hell by saying you cannot billy.
    Putin found it amusing that so many people in america could vote against their own best interests by voting for trump in america.
    Politics in america is extremely rooted in fear again. For some altright it is extreme hatred of Jews and Israel and I am no fan of of Zionism.

    For many whites it is to blame all of our problems on blacks and Hispanics when many of those people are as hard working and as screwed as the white middle and working classea are.

    For those altrights like billy its all about hatred of communism and casting social democrats and people who believe in liberal democracy as communists. There are many people who get government services they pay for those governments to provide. I am sure billy has benefitted quite generously from public education, from a national post office, from the many public universities and private universities that have flourished from government subsidies and research from being able to go to Yellowstone or the grand canyon. From public library systems. From public sanitation systems encouraged all over the united states and the university and government subsidized research that have kept them in place.

  21. The tragedy I see is in nuclear states like the united states becoming authoritarian. The Japanese authoritarian Abe has no remorse for what the nuclear cabal from his country has done to Japan and the world.We are now seeing countries that are being destroyed or have been virtually destroyed by nuclear reactors in the 21st century.  In all honesty historians would look back and say the USSR was certainly financially brought to its knees by Chernobyl.
    Kazakhstan was pretty well gone from nuclear pollution by 1995.  
    The Ukraine is now in a state of seemingly permanent civil war as a result of Chernobyl. Belarus is quite simply a nuclear hellhole and there is no way to put lipstick on that pig.
    The antinuclear kids who supported Jill stein and Bernie Sanders(who would have one by the way if given a real chance), are now branded snowflakes and social justice warriors. They are antinuclear greens not Marxists or communists.  The green parties around the world set the precident for no nuclear reactors or wastes anywhere. There is no such thing as a pronuclear green. That is simply propaganda.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Many greens do advocate some sort of access for healthcare to people in the world. Perhaps that is why they are demonized in the united states so badly. People being able to see a dorcor without paying 300 to a thousand dollars for an office visit.

    The new president of Austria is a green. He is not a communist he simply does not want any nuclear reactors or waste in or around his country.  The German greens and other European greens have established the same president carried on by conservative and more liberal govts for years.  France and england are just one nuclear accident away from total obliteration and few people understand how delicate nuclear reactors really are.

    I do not think the nuclear industrial complex  is compatible with democratic processes. The failure to dismantle all the nuclear reactors and find a way to dispose of the waste, is becoming the death knell for life on earth. 

    There are rich and ideologues who do not like democracy. They consider an educated middle class and a working class as disposable. We need them more than ever to find a way put of the mess the world is in from the continuing nuclear Armageddon.

    The irony of trump tower 20 miles from Indian point never ceases to amaze me. There will be no survivalist communities or handmade world fantasy scenarios if or when this civilization fails. 

    I would say that the African country of somalia is also a nuclear energy  failed state.  I say that because countries with nuclear energy and nuclear reactors have been exporting nuclear waste largely illegally for 46 years. Somalia has taken in millions of tons of nuclear waste, both high level and low level, from France and england and other European countries before the renounced nuclear since the 1980s.

    Somalia is a failed country with several factions constantly at civil war. So many sick and wretched people there. The only thing that most Somalis dream about is a way to get out of somalia.

    The Japanese, the belarusians, the Ukrainians now impress young people who are poor or considered undesirable to help clean up nuclear messes. Those 19 to 30 year old kids exposed to that kind of nuclear filth will not live to be 40.

    I have seen the same suggestion in the united states In the new altright journals like zero hedges and especially by some trump dittoheads that speak on fox news and among altright dittoheads and avowed racists on the altright forum of enenews. They are suggesting to use the forced labor of 19 to 30 year old kids who are unemployed, homeless or have had trouble with the law in the united states to clean up superfund sights. How evil is that? Why not give unemployed people jobs cleaning up nuke sights-superfund sights and stop spending taxpayer money to subsidize bloated military budgets and new or old nuclear reactors?

    But noooooo! they want to do always with public education in the united states and public libraries and the united postal service which Thomas Jefferson, john Adams, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and later Horace Mann supported in the United states.  Now they want to use american citizen young people to cleanup nuclear messes against their will. It is getting to the point that I do not want to see how far the alternative right the hippocritical teapartiers the racism , the non free speech zealots, the law and order zealots who have already turned this country into a virtual police state, will go

  24. I was talking to an Egyptian young man who had graduated from Egyptian Medical School and done residency there. I talked to him before the election in early November.

    He was here in the United States to Take a Medical Board Examination to qualify to practice medicine in the United States. He came from a family of doctors in Egypt.

    I asked him why he would want to come to the United Sates? I went into detail about my position on Nuclear Reactors, nuclear waste, and nuclear armament in the United States. I also explained how I felt about democratic values and freedoms are fleeting in the United States.

    It was a very good conversation because, he accepted some of the things about nuclear reactors I said, that he had not contemplated before.

    I did not realize they are building a large nuclear reactor in Egypt now. I told him Egypt is a prime place for renewable energy. He said the authoritarian government in Egypt is deadset on building a nuclear reactor there. He said he wants to move to the United States because he is tired of the types of authoritarian governments he has lived under in Egypt.

    I asked him how he felt about trump, who wants to blame a lot of Americas troubles on immigrants. I also told him I felt Donald Trump would be happy to restrict some of the individual freedoms and liberal democratic institutions so happily enjoyed by so many Americans.

    One of the major points Trump was talking about at that time was getting rid of restricting freedom of religion by registering Muslims and Arabs in the United States.

    My new acquaintance Ali, said that if Trump came to power, America would not be such an attractive place for him to move to.

    Trump has since said he would appoint a secretary of education that wants to dismantle the public education system here. He has also appointed some of the worst wall street bandits in recent history, and worst war mongers in history in spite of everything he said before the election.
    He appoint to the Sec of energy an oilman's dream and a guy who was instrumental in allowing one of the largest, most poorly constructed nuclear waste dumps in the world that will like leak the most dangerous radionuclide's into an aquifer that provides drinking water into 5 states in this country.

      by LINda Puetz Gunter

      "There is a climate crisis upon us. Polar ice is melting. Sea level rise is happening. Time is running out. Emergency solutions are the only option — energy supplies that can come on fast and sustainably.

      Sadly, some in the U.S. Congress would rather bury their heads in radioactive quicksand, sinking our money into nuclear energy research at national laboratories that have sought but failed to find illusory atomic answers for decades.

      The House and Senate are re-introducing near identical versions of the “Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act of 2017,” which promises to throw our money down the nuclear rabbit hole rather than direct major funding to renewable energy solutions that are already addressing climate change quickly and effectively but should be supported and accelerated before it’s too late."

They have plenty of money from robbing america blind for so many years in so many ways. They have had am radio with rush for years. For mainstream media it has been the rightwing corporate repubs against the right wing neoliberal neoconservative democrats. Now they try to dominate the internet with blatantly racist altright sites like rense and the captured commentary pages of enenews. With the altright blatherings of infowars and Alex Jones. They all have the same weekly talking points that william St George posted right off with majias article about newspeak: Right now the rightwing echochambers from Rush on am, to rense, to Alex Jones, to zerohedge, to many of the more esoteric lamo conspiracy sites to enenews are hammering home How evil liberals are degrading Donald Trumps inauguration, How the CIA should be abolished(which it should but, I am sure they have something more malignant in the shadows waiting to take its place), To how trump will improve the economy with unbridled new growth and consumerism, To how the neoconservative neoliberal democrats wanted war with Russia (while Bernie and Jill stein absolutely did not.)
    Then they have to throw in their nasty racial epithets about how all liberals love BLM as if black lives don't matter. And though obama and clinton did little for working people or middle class blacks the rightwingers want em all put in jail or shipped off. Then there is that mean old Soros they have to go on and on about daily 24 hours a day nevermind the koch brothers, trump himself, or the brothel of swampthings trump is about to drag in with him when he comes into power.
    Its so redundant and contrived its comical. Yet trump will never address Fukushima daiichi or the growing dangers of nuclear power and nuclear waste in america as Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein wholeheartedly did. Thank god for Majias blog!

It is their twisted version of political correctness that all red blooded,true blue, white 'mericans should live by. You see the right has evolved into a political movement of had core racial hatred politics. This is their definition of Cultural Marxism:Cultural Marxists absurdly deny the biological reality of gender and race and argue that gender and race are “social constructs”.
    The fact that biologists and genetesists long ago gave up on the idea that their are distinct human racial divisions nasty neonazi bastards like William st George are still obsessed with racial hatred politics. There are certainly many ethnic groups within the human community but there is no scientific evidence that African , Asian, semetic, Caucasian, or native american DNA is different to sub categorize people of the human species into different races and subraces as these evil bastards would have it.
    little willy St George goes on in his first reply up at the top there to say what I have said for a long time. Namely the altright internet sites and a lot of conspiracy sites have become integrated parts of the echo chambers the right has used in mainstream media, on am radio with blowhards like rush Limbaugh and other hired gun talking heads, on fox news and partially on the many fox owned TV channels, on Rupert Murdoch controlled media.

  30. Today--"Liberal America" -- phrase used by NPR. What does the adjective liberal mean in this context? Hollywood? Meryl Streep and Robert de Niro. Barbara Streisand? BLM? George Soros? Lady Gaga? It seems to mean a political or cultural position taken by celebrities like George Cloony. Of course news casters and commentators are also celebrities of a sort. And popular musicians. Strange. These people seems to be very wealthy. Is wealth a requirement for being liberal? Well, not all college professors are wealthy as some are struggling adjunct professors barely getting by. So maybe being intellectual and/ or being a wealthy person. Green Stein then doubly qualifies.

  31. There are two kinds of liberalism. A liberalism which is always, subterraneously authoritative and paternalistic, on the side of one's good conscience. And then there is a liberalism which is more ethical than political; one would have to find another name for this. Something like a profound suspension of judgment.

  34. " It is disappointing to see the left-of-center crowd performing as if on cue as faithful servants of the ruling elite.
    If a country ever needed a real left-wng, the US surely does.
    But there is not one. The left-wing’s causes have shrunk down to little more than transgender rights, homosexual rights, lesbian rights, female rights, illegal alien rights, and the persecution of white heterosexual males for opposing these rights. As Jeffrey St. Clair asked the other day, what about the working class?
    The left demonizes and delegitimizes. Even the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence have been turned into documents of white supremacy. Thomas Jefferson, who happened to live in a time when the work force consisted of slaves, stood for the people against the interests. Nevertheless, the left delegitimizes him as “a slave owning serial rapist.”
    Donald Trump stands for the people against the offshoring interests and the military security/complex. One would think the left would support a president so fiercely opposed by the CIA, but, no, Trump is delegitimized as a racist elected by a racist electorate. The hate card overwhelms common sense. Everyone but blacks, hispanics, native Americans, illegals, and the left are racists."---Paul Craig Roberts http://jamesfetzer.blogspot.com/

    2. Yes but william likes to cast greens and progressives as cultural Marxists and communists. He also likes to deragtorily refer to Bernie and Stein supporters as snowflakes, sjws, and cultural Marxists. They were the only two antinuclear groups. If people like scott walker have his way the middle class will be obliterated in this country. Ask a teacher how he/she feels abouts scott walker. In countries like Japan, Korea, Finland , China teachers are much venerated. Much of the middle class is barely hanging on anymore.
      Donald trump sure as hell has never done anything for working people in his lifetime. All the republicans and William types have ever worked for in this country was to dismantle Unions, dismantle public education, sell off the post office and make sure people with prior medical conditions and no medical insurance have no access to healthcare. Wtf is a clintonite democrat? Its a narrow definition of the small group of corporate democrats who have heeded the dlc that Clinton created in the 80s. I will not be stereotyped by the brand of political correctness the alt right , the msm and republicans have been using. I am proud to be a progressive! I am proud to have liberal social views! I suppose that the real power brokers and uber rich that run the democratic party and are truly conservative as heck might want people to think they are liberal and left of center but they are not. They are neo liberal neoconservatives who have worked with the republicans to steel america blind.The corporate democrats have been unabashedly selling the working class down the sewer in unison with republicans and teapartiers for many years now. There have been 4 elections now if you count off year congressional elections, where radical teapartier republicans have beenbgiven the opportunity to follow through with their promises and help the working class people they were sopposedly beholden too. In every case they go to Washington and vote in lockstep with corporate Republicans and democrats to screw the little guy. There are no liberal republicans left. The real power brokers that run the two parties are both right of center.
      It is good that the sham of a party was fully exposed, although it does not look good that anything different will take its place. Working people, the middle classes progressive should abandon the democratic party in my opinion. It is good to see how truly desperate and stupid they are by blaming their loss on the Russians.

    3. It is interesting that Clinton hired the Republican strategist podesta who led her astray so badly. It is also interesting that Obama hired a republican FBI guy who soldd her out. Maybe it was planned that way. It shows that the democrats are not a viable party if democracy is to continue in America. Obama actually continued the work of country wrecking George W Bush.
      The number one priority of the democrats in my opinion is to let Bernie run the party, get rid of the dlc, get rid of chuck schumer and Nancy pelosi.

He could have started undertaking the huge task of shutting down all reactors shortly after he saw want happened at Fukushima. He could have invested all of his effort into making America's top dog for renewables as China has done. Obama could have made a declaration like the Premier of Russia xi just did that all nuclear weapons in the world should be gotten rid of. I am sure that is what a Jill stein Bernie would have done for america because that is what they said they would do and continue doing. They probably would have confronted the Japanese about Fukushima too. You on the other have no solutions except empty an ideology aggrandizes the psychopathic corporate captains you worship willy.
