More and more details are coming to light revealing that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, variously known as ISIS, IS or Daesh, is being fed and kept alive by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish President and by his Turkish intelligence service, including MIT, the Turkish CIA. Turkey, as a result of Erdogan’s pursuit of what some call a Neo-Ottoman Empire fantasies that stretch all the way to China, Syria and Iraq, threatens not only to destroy Turkey but much of the Middle East if he continues on his present path.
This depiction of how Israel has eradicated the Palestinians has been challenged by some Jews. Below the line are the links and extracts from their challenge.
Credit is just as good as money. We can give each other credit. That means we can use our own money, no longer depending on the banks and the speculators…
How would nature design a financial system?
What we can see today, if we choose to look for it, is a global permaculture of community credit systems emerging on the ground, from the bottom up, below the canopy of established finance. These systems, which could also be called community-based mutual credit systems, are consistent with biological design principles in all the ways bank credit is not. They are bottom-up, locally attuned and adapted, decentralized, diverse, self-organized, iterative and modular – in short, everything we dream of from a biological design perspective. Perhaps most important, these systems are not premised on quantitative expansion; instead, we could say they are premised on qualitative expansion, with quantitative stability over time. This is consistent with the design of mature biological systems and the phase our species is moving into now, as we reach the limits to our own growth.
At Princeton and other colleges, historic symbols are targets of the racial justice movement.
ROBERT STEELE: If we renamed every building, monument, and road associated with every US leader responsible for crimes against humanity, we would have to rename ALL of them. Perhaps we should focus on the crimes against humanity being committed by the current US Administration? Or is that too hard for privileged kids looking to make a statement without having to lift a finger? I am all in favor of restitution (especially to our Native Americans) in the context of Truth & Reconciliation, but I’d rather get it right across the board, instead of this infantile crap. We need to restore integrity to our government — that means Electoral Reform, the election of an Independent President with a Coalition Cabinet, and the election of 20-30 small party and Independent Members to Congress so as to restore Article 1 of the Constitution. Anything less is a waste of time and energy.
