Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems

In The Road to Serfdom, published in 1944, Hayek argued that government planning, by crushing individualism, would lead inexorably to totalitarian control. Like Mises’s book Bureaucracy, The Road to Serfdom was widely read. It came to the attention of some very wealthy people, who saw in the philosophy an opportunity to free themselves from regulation and tax. When, in 1947, Hayek founded the first organisation that would spread the doctrine of neoliberalism – the Mont Pelerin Society – it was supported financially by millionaires and their foundations.

With their help, he began to create what Daniel Stedman Jones describes in Masters of the Universe as “a kind of neoliberal international”: a transatlantic network of academics, businessmen, journalists and activists. The movement’s rich backers funded a series of thinktanks which would refine and promote the ideology. Among them were the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Institute of Economic Affairs, the Centre for Policy Studies and the Adam Smith Institute. They also financed academic positions and departments, particularly at the universities of Chicago and Virginia.

As it evolved, neoliberalism became more strident. Hayek’s view that governments should regulate competition to prevent monopolies from forming gave way – among American apostles such as Milton Friedman – to the belief that monopoly power could be seen as a reward for efficiency.

Television Propaganda and You

There is a very excellent show on CBS called 'Criminal Minds'. Well written and engaging, I enjoy watching the show very much. But I've noticed many cases of propaganda in the show. There was a CM Marathon on yesterday and while I've seen other instances of propaganda in the show, one that springs to mind is the use of CCTV surveillance cameras. They showed someone watching the monitors admitting that they aren't there to stop crime, but to catch perpetrators after the fact. In truth, even this is rare. It showed them using the cameras to witness a murder, then follow the 'perp' up out of the subway and onto the street. Unlikely, but it sure makes those cameras look useful, doesn't it?

Open Letter to Jon Voight (Unnecessary Roughness)

Open Letter to Jon Voight (Unnecessary Roughness)

Dear Jon:

Saw you sitting on Fox with Mike Huckabee, (what is it with republican governors with shows on Fox?) where you read a letter to President Obama while ostensibly addressing it to We the American people. Your missive began with a bitch slap at Obama (though I must have missed your letter to Mr. Bush upon whom Obama appears to be modeling our national decline) then became a blowjob to capitalism. It was at that point I turned it off.

I Must Be Weird

I turn on the television and look at the talking heads telling us what to think, what to wear, what to believe and what to say and and I see the pedicures, manicures, 200 dollar hair cuts, 1000 dollar suits, protected by body guards all the while trying to CONvince us they are like we are and I just want to choke the living shit out of the likes of Sean Hannity, Bill O'rielly, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh on and on to what must be infinity and it really pisses me off, but I don't know.. I Must be Weird.

Is Tim Tebow's Super Bowl Commercial Possibly Based on a Lie?

Pam Tebow Claims She Was Counseled by a Doctor to Have an Abortion – in a Country Where Abortion Was, and Is Illegal

By Joe Bodolai © 2010, All rights reserved

The militant fundamentalist lobby group with the tawdry manipulate-the-stupid name of “Focus on the Family” has successfully recruited Tim Tebow and his mother for another of their anti-choice, anti-abortion ads, which will air during this Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The message is based on Pam Tebow’s public speaking set piece story about how she was “counseled by doctors” while pregnant with Tim in the Philippines to have an abortion, even though abortion was, and still is, illegal in that country, even if raped or if the pregnancy jeopardized the health of the mother.

The 2010 DHS Surveillance Technology Wishlist
(or, What to Watch Out For)

"What I Want To Know Is..." – issue #1

American citizen: if you think the danger is only relevant to those with "something to hide," you had better think again. Please.(Anonymous)

The makers of our constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness... They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred, as against the government, the right to be let alone – the most comprehensive of the rights and the right most valued by civilized men. (Justice Louis D. Brandeis)

Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen... (Zbigniew Brezhinsky)

I hope you find this helpful, gentle Reader. I could have, you understand, done something more immediately useful instead, like looking for a place to move to – a land like the America of my youth - an America I only thought I lived in, an America that may have never existed.

Thankful on Thanksgiving

While many Americans attempt to be thankful for anything in these trying and evil times, I am truly thankful there are people like Mike, who has created this site to fight for truth and decency against the murderous, hateful, worst examples of our species.

As we remember and reflect upon the gratitude we feel for the wonder that is in our lives, and the people whose talent, love, and inspiration guides us, this is for Mike Rivero, a true American hero and a beacon for the world.

Thanks MIke.

Consequences

One has to wonder why people never learn from the lessons of history. Why is it that the rulers and enforcers of laws turn a blind eye to the atrociousness and retributions leveled upon them from days past, justified by the brutality of power madness currently sweeping the landscape? Do they think they are going to continue along this destructive path and not suffer the consequences when history repeatedly proves otherwise? Are they that stupid to believe they can treat people like herds of stock and not get gored?
