We’re playing around. None of the RSS / curation offerings are satisfactory. As a side note: the President’s Daily Brief (PDB) is Top Secret Limited Distribution and costs roughly 219 million dollars a day and is seen by very few. This daily is free and open to all. Below is a simple Global Reality matrix. The US Government obsesses on the two red dots.

As smoke clears on the implosion of the Empty Gox bitcoin exchange, thousands of people in the community committed to revealing the truth behind the stonewalling exchange. What was claimed first to be a technical problem, then an outside theft, has been conclusively determined that the MtGox management knew too much, too long ago, to have this be an ordinary case of theft.

R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER:
The History [and Mystery] of the Universe
A one-man play created by D. W. Jacobs
(first performed in 2000 in San Diego, then San Francisco)

The following excerpts constitute one persons feelings of the play’s wisdom and inspiration that may
warrant pondering:

1. Gravity does not have to think before behaving in the most economical manner.

2. We now have the capability to take care of all humanity at a higher standard of living than we have ever known, but only if the sovereign fences are completely removed.

3. The physical wealth of universe cannot diminish, the metaphysical can only increase.

4. Learning the truth about all things, then the truth about combinations of things, that’s what you want to do.

Robert Reich: Why Revolution is Dead in the USA

Robert Reich

This post originally ran on Robert Reich’s Web page.

People ask me all the time why we don’t have a revolution in America, or at least a major wave of reform similar to that of the Progressive Era or the New Deal or the Great Society.

Middle incomes are sinking, the ranks of the poor are swelling, almost all the economic gains are going to the top, and big money is corrupting our democracy. So why isn’t there more of a ruckus?

The answer is complex, but three reasons stand out.

A Can of Worms Finally Released and Emptied

By A. Bodhi Chenevey, RM, DD on September 13, 2013

This book hits home at a personal level, yet it offers a well researched–NOT A WELL FABRICATED BATCH OF USA PROPAGANDA–historical documentation of what has become known as Western Counter-Insurgency, and then proceeds to expose it for what COIN really is: “Petty War” tactics and nothing special at all.During the unpopular conflict in Southeast Asia, neck deep in this fiasco, I smelled something horribly rotten and never could put my finger on. I was well read in the current Insurgency and COIN documents from all the well knowns, but what I saw unfold before me and what I read and was taught as US Military Doctrine were diametrically opposite one another.

The level of savagery and brutality elicited upon the peoples of the south for whom we were there to supposedly help, the corruption in both our government, especailly in the SpecOps groups, and the southern government and its military we worked to create and support, the utilization of indigenous mountain peoples we exploited as hunters exploit their hunting dogs, and the openly elitist view the US Military, both conventional and SpecForces groups harbored toward all of peoples in this region, really is par for the course, when discussing USA/British/French Colonial inspired COIN. This book LITERALLY documents these facts beginning from the Preface to the Conclusion, ripping SOCOM a “new one.”

Lanier: Silicon Valley Making the “Stupid Choice”

This piece by NYT columnist Joe Nocera on his read of Jaron Lanier’s book Who Owns the Future is thought-provoking and worth serious consideration by policy makers in the government especially, if only because colossal Silicon Valley greed blinds technology companies to the economic destruction their technology is raining down upon their customers, so other forces need to reign them in before it is too late.

Some excerpts:

“With unemployment seemingly stalled out at around 7 percent in the aftermath of the Great Recession, with the leak of thousands of National Security Agency documents making news almost daily, with the continuing stories about the erosion of privacy in the digital economy, “Who Owns the Future?” puts forth a kind of universal theory that ties all these things together. It also puts forth some provocative, unconventional ideas for ensuring that the inevitable dominance of software in every corner of society will be healthy instead of harmful.”<
