David Gosselin discusses Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ and ‘The Island,’
visions of a system of psycho-spiritual manipulation.
For elites the real problem has become the Promethean and Judeo-Christian image of man itself,
the Classical and religious Western heritage,
where the Renaissance idea of man as endowed with a divine creative spark
allows him to master knowledge of “fire.”
They seek to move from a post-Renaissance Western paradigm towards
a new more sustainable Gaia-centric “ecological ethic” and a more efficient system of control.

“US Confirms 2nd Carrier Group En Route To “Deter Hostile Actions Against Israel”
In case you were worried they weren’t insane. What are they planning to hit?
Gaza: Yes, now that we hear all about Gaza, we know what they have planned for our 15 minute cities.
And her story reminds me of the American-Indian wars and settlement.
It’s all well-planned, well-researched, well-practiced plan. Years and years, all the same, all the bugs worked out. Like Rome actually. So like Rome you need a much bigger paradigm change than just “We resisted”. You need a thing like, “This offensive weapon has completely tipped the balance of power for 200 years.” E.g. last time, “the rifle” or in a bigger cycle, e.g. “Iron weapons”, not bronze. Right now there is a turn but no one will like it: Offensive weapons are more powerful than every defense. As we see in Ukraine. That’s a recipe for killing everything (civilian).
“Iran…made it clear that it may need to intervene if Israel’s military operation in Gaza continues,”
Yes, and Israel wants this, they need a world war to cover up the casino robbery. I don’t know how much clearer to make this, or how many dozen times they have to try (Zaporizhzhia) before people credit their eyes. This isn’t an accident, the events aren’t unrelated, they need a war or they will be killed.
So anyway, that is not good.
Because like Russia, since they WANT a war, and WANT everyone killed, they are certainly able to do so. I mean if a guy with nukes wants a war, he can get up, have covfefe, and push the button. It’s not plausibly stoppable, so thank God they have the caveat that they prefer – but don’t require – that it be “Somebody else’s fault” as well or they would have done it 5 years ago. …When they pushed the button on the worldwide bioweapon. Can you see why if you’re a good guy you have to be so slow and careful now? Be an adult.
Israel will FORCE Iran to attack. They will do anything, everything, because it’s in their long-term “Plan”. Whatever they have to do, however long it takes, they will do it.
““In the name of self-defense, Israel is seeking to justify what would amount to ethnic cleansing,” UN Special Rapporteur Francesca Albanese said,”
Wow! The UN actually SAID something. Like CPS, I want to credit somebody for doing their job correctly, although of course she’s not near the installed, paid, maniacs at the top.
Again, if the People vacate Gaza, Israel will merely take it. The End. Those people will be in Egypt. The End. So total win, unconditional surrender. Didn’t we just say you can’t just invade other countries and kill everyone? That’s evilly-evil PutinHitler? Nope. I just forgot. (While we invaded and today occupy Syria)
Also, following Mossad paying Hamas via Qatar, Joe paying $12B to Iran knowing it goes to Hezbollah and nukes, it’s to MAKE your enemy. CREATE them from nothing. But then you pick winners and losers by making sure one side is unwinnable, not strong enough, sabotaged, whatever. Like we did with Japan. Say it’s fine, we sell oil, then when they do, cut them off and say “What? We never dun nothin'”
““forcible population transfers constitute a crime against humanity,”
And shutting off the water is a complete genocide in what, 3 days? That’s much more effective than the showers.
Now HOW do they have the war as above? Iran is going to provide that food and water, using Russian ships and escorts. As Armstrong said, “Opening a second front on Russia”. Again, they are planning this for 80 years, admitting they are doing it. Who are “Gog and Magog” in “Armageddon”? They interpret the Bible, then make it happen with tireless work. I wish their desk manual was “Harry Potter” or “In the Night Kitchen” instead, they’d have spend $100 Trillion dollars on something much nicer. But you have to understand they don’t READ this, they WANT this, they MAKE this happen. Like Club of Rome, “Limits to Growth.” They release it to us with the premise that it’s passive. When they consider it a live, active blueprint.
So they are CAUSING Armageddon. Ask them. Pompeo will tell you. Bibi will tell you. This is their GOAL, and the fact of the prophesy just means they need to HELP. Only then can you have your perfect world.
Anyway, so that means this is all just a puppet show. It’s made up. Essentially there are no real problems, they are CREATING them. Cue quote from “Three World Wars.”
“The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement essentially envisaged the death of all Ukrainian industry,”
This is straight colonialism, as always done. They are commodity producers, the banking and value-added is for the master country. …This is what they did to the United States. We are exported and also held hostage to world-wide banking (and oil, and shipping) flows, under their nexus. Internally, and maybe this wasn’t intended, the coasts are colonizing Iowa, as they do the banking and value-added, Iowa does the raw corn and molybdenum. Then the Coasts say “Hey, we have all the GDP, we’re sick of supporting you lazy, backward sub-human Neanderthals.” Sure, you have the GDP, because, like London and India, you STOLE it first. Depends where you start the counting and what you count. 1/3 of our GDP is government, welfare (corporate). That call that “Production.” Production = Consumption.
Anyway, like above, maybe people want to recognize the pass play they’ve been running 400 or 200 years now? FINANCE IS THE COLONIALISM. In Ukraine, in Africa, in Asia, and Here.
“Ukraine has achieved “nothing,”and Russian troops have switched to offensive operations along the entire front,”
They are hammering Ukraine with mobilization, but haven’t broken through anywhere. I can’t say that’s a GOOD sign (cue meme here). I imagine they want to save lives, but you can’t flip from full defensive as a whole year, to full attack, which requires the opposite behavior. Example: Every second Russia is careful and doesn’t break through, Ukraine can move additional material to Adiivika and fill the hole. So you’re at a point where you can’t care a whit about men, when you’ll need to care about them again in 6 days. …But I’m not a general here. What if they, like Ukraine, hurl forward, double down, and DON’T break through?
““And they did what they should have done,” he said. “They immediately called the Archives — immediately called the Archives, turned them over to the Archives, and I was briefed about this discovery.”
…And then arrested Biden for stealing classified material. No? Why not?
“The two-page document claims the magazine “provides a platform for a Russian influence actor,”
Yes. They did. It’s called “Reporting”. That’s what a “Platform” is. What we need to do of course is NEVER TALK. Never ever talking is the path to pure peace.October 15, 2023 at 11:17 am #144767
Divided loyalty or just plain old cuckolding of a submissive country expressed by U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin as a second carrier group is being sent to shore up Israel’s defenses:
“The increases to US force Posture signal the United States’ ironclad commitment to Israel’s security and our resolve to deter any state or non-state actor seeking to escalate this war,” Austin stated.”
Lloyd Austin probably could not recall the USS Liberty and would not recognize the name William McGonagle. So I will.
The USS Liberty incident was an attack on a United States Navy technical research ship, USS Liberty, by Israeli Air Force jet fighter aircraft and Israeli Navy motor torpedo boats, on 8 June 1967, during the Six-Day War. The combined air and sea attack killed 34 crew members, wounded 171 crew members, and severely damaged the ship.
“Captain McGonagle’s Medal of Honor citation does not list the nationality of the military forces which attacked his ship. This omission is highly unusual and was allegedly due to a supposed cover-up by the incumbent presidential administration, although this remains highly contentious”
McGonagle received the Congressional Medal of Honor…not at at the White House, not presented by the President of the United States, BUT presented “secretly” at the Navy Yard by the Secretary of the Navy.

Is Israel Unprepared to Fight Hamas?
“It is one thing to drop bombs or artillery on a population without air defense or counter battery units. It is an entirely different animal to put troops on the ground to engage entrenched forces.
Just ask the Ukrainians. “
The Begging Bowl is open for business
Oh PLEASE, please can you spare an extra $760.42 for IDF boby armor, please!
“Based on the the image above, which showed up in my spam today with a plea to kick in some cash so Israeli soldiers can buy body armor, it appears the Israeli Army is not ready for prime time.”
“Israel’s problem may be something more serious than an equipment shortage. According to Sy Hersh,.
the Israeli Army, which is comprised predominantly of reservists, is not ready for urban combat:”
“While the Israeli Air Force is turning northern Gaza into a moonscape, this does not guarantee that Hamas bunkers and tunnels have been eliminated. German soldiers who entered Stalingrad after the Luftwaffe leveled most of that city in August of 1942, found themselves unable to move freely because of the massive piles of rubble that blocked the streets and avenues of Stalingrad. The mountains of broken concrete not only hindered the ability of German tanks to maneuver, it also provided cover and concealment for Soviet soldiers who then counter attacked the German columns.”
So I guess the idea is to slaughter IDF reservists who don’t have a fucking clue what real urban warfare is like, they are softies.
This will generate more outrage in Israel and the Empire of Lies diaspora
“While the Israeli public are united in their outrage over the Hamas attack and the failure of the Israeli Defense Force to safeguard the border separating Gaza from the Israelis settlements, there are deep political fissures, actually a chasm, separating the Jews with roots in Europe from those who came from North Africa and the Middle East.
It is sort of like the divide in the United States between the Black Lives Matter crowd and the Freedom Caucus.
They don’t have a lot to talk about with each other. If, or when, the Israeli Army starts to incur massive casualties, the political support Netanyahu currently enjoys will evaporate like water in the desert.”October 15, 2023 at 1:56 pm #144775zerosumParticipant
My Dream is your nightmare!
The US’ efforts is to deter Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah or others from entering the conflict, claims US media.
The US has deployed an aircraft carrier group and fighter jets to the region to reinforce its stance.
Iran has “red lines” and would respond if Israel continues its military operation, particularly if it proceeds with a ground offensive in Gaza.
(Explosives in the tunnels will destroy Gaza and does not require a ground offensive in Gaza. Too bad for the hostages that might be in the tunnels.)
Note: Violence has also escalated along the Israel-Lebanon border and in the West Bank.

POTUS, SECDEF and Joint Chiefs let White Deplorables in uniform AND General Anthony Taguba take the hit for Abu Ghraib.
“What I found in my investigation offended my sense of decency as a human being, and my sense of honor as a soldier. I’d learned early about the necessity of treating prisoners humanely. My father, Tomas B. Taguba, a member of the joint American-Filipino force during World War II, was captured by the Japanese and endured the Bataan Death March.
It was clear to me in 2004 that the United States military could not be the institution it needed to be as long as it engaged in and tolerated abuse.
But the military’s path to accountability was a long, and its leaders hardly welcomed oversight. A few months after I completed the investigation, I was reassigned to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, where i could be closely monitored Then, in early 2006, I received a telephone call from General Richard A. Cody, then the Army’s vice chief of staff, who said, “i need you to retire by January of 2007.” No explanation was given. But none was needed.”
The Army would eventually dismiss the single conviction against Steve Jordan the officer in charge at Abu Ghraib. Taguba ascertained that Jordan was operating outside his chain of command even during the investigation after all he was subordinate to an Army Intel officer Colonel Tom Pappas while assigned at Abu Ghraib. Jordan’s only conviction was for disobeying a general order NOT to discuss his case with anyone except his lawyers.
For my part trying to counter this malignancy, a Navy Nurse assigned me to a USAF junior flight surgeon billet in Afghanistan in 2007 as a response to my request to be assigned as Senior Medical Officer at Bagram, Abu Ghraib or Gitmo. Give the United States Air Force some credit for sensibility when they, unlike the “stupid as fuck” Navy Nurse , recognized that Navy Captain is the equivalent of USAF Colonel NOT USAF Captain.
The USAF placement officer’s exact words follow when I didn’t refuse the assignment: “Don’t you think your commanding officer is trying to get you killed because otherwise she’s as stupid as fuck”
Eventually this “stupid as fuck” Navy Nurse ruined my career by labeling me “Hannibal Lecter” and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”. Yet, the people who raped, tortured and killed other people’s children at Abu Ghraib, Bagram and Gitmo weren’t labeled as such by that same “stupid as fuck” Navy Nurse.
Are you paying attention aspnaz? You think there’s not one American unwilling to kill in defense of their children or your kids?
Add that to the body count of Taguba, Eric Shinseki, Joseph Darby and John Murtha.October 15, 2023 at 2:58 pm #144780

But why? Is it the resistance from the west against killing 100,000 civilians? Or is it Iran saying we’ll have no choice but to become involved. And then that bringing in Saudi, Turkey etc?

TE Lawrence and The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
At the age of 15, Lawrence cycled with his schoolfriend Cyril Beeson around Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Oxfordshire, visiting almost every village’s parish church, studying their monuments and antiquities, and making rubbings of their monumental brasses.
In the summers of 1906 and 1907, Lawrence toured France by bicycle, sometimes with Beeson, collecting photographs, drawings, and measurements of medieval castles.
From 1907 to 1910, Lawrence read history at Jesus College, Oxford. In July and August 1908 he cycled 2,200 miles (3,500 km) solo through France to the Mediterranean and back researching French castles. In the summer of 1909, he set out alone on a three-month walking tour of crusader castles in Ottoman Syria, during which he travelled 1,000 miles (1,600 km) on foot.
In 1910, Lawrence was offered the opportunity to become a practising archaeologist at Carchemish, in the expedition that D. G. Hogarth was setting up on behalf of the British Museum. Hogarth arranged a “Senior Demyship” (a form of scholarship) for Lawrence at Magdalen College, Oxford, to fund his work at £100 a year. He sailed for Beirut in December 1910 and went to Byblos, where he studied Arabic. He then went to work on the excavations at Carchemish, near Jerablus in northern Syria, where he worked under Hogarth, R. Campbell Thompson of the British Museum, and Leonard Woolley until 1914.
The Arab Revolt began in June 1916, but it bogged down after a few successes, with a real risk that the Ottoman forces would advance along the coast of the Red Sea and recapture Mecca. On 16 October 1916, Lawrence was sent to the Hejaz on an intelligence-gathering mission led by Ronald Storrs. He interviewed Sharif Hussein’s sons Ali, Abdullah, and Faisal, and concluded that Faisal was the best candidate to lead the Revolt.
Lawrence made a 300-mile (480 km) personal journey northward in June 1917, on the way to Aqaba, visiting Ras Baalbek, the outskirts of Damascus, and Azraq, Jordan.
Lawrence was a keen motorcyclist and owned eight Brough Superior motorcycles at different times.
For my work on the Arab front I had determined to accept nothing. The cabinet raised the Arabs to fight for us by definite promises of self-government afterwards. Arabs believe in persons, not in institutions. They saw in me a free agent of the British government, and demanded from me an endorsement of its written promises. So I had to join the conspiracy, and, for what my word was worth, assured the men of their reward. In our two years’ partnership under fire they grew accustomed to believing me and to think my government, like myself, sincere. In this hope they performed some fine things but, of course, instead of being proud of what we did together, I was continually and bitterly ashamed.

– The accumulation of cell phone blinking off in one location, then popping up in another (or the same) location hours or days later.
– Historical drone footage noting the arrival of fresh dirt somewhere, and then “played backwards” to see the location of a popular source.

Ramallah, October 14, 2023—More than 724 Palestinian children have been killed by the Israeli military’s relentless bombardment of the Gaza Strip since October 7.
Israeli forces bombarded convoys of Palestinian evacuees yesterday as hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip fled south after Israeli authorities warned them to evacuate from the north ahead of a suspected ground invasion. At least 70 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli attacks, reportedly mostly women and children. At least one of the Israeli airstrikes happened on Salah-al-Din street, which is one of two evacuation routes from north Gaza to the south, according to the BBC.

John Helmer looks in detail at Russia’s internally stressed position of neutrality on Israel/Palestine. The Russian military and Russian people, particularly outside of Moscow, increasingly see Israel as an enemy. There are many Islamic Russians. Putin’s friendship with Netanyahu can no longer be shown openly.
By equating Jewish ethnicity and religious faith with nationality of the Israeli state, this constitution eliminates Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim rights with the formula, “the exercise of the right to national self-determination in the State of Israel is unique to the Jewish People.” The corollary is that any Palestinian exercise of the right to self-determination on the expanding Jewish national territory is illegal, anti-Semitic, and terrorist. Internationally, it is the policy of Israel and its allies to make support for or discussion of Palestinian right to self-determination a thought and speech crime.
In Russian politics, this is the one international conflict on which President Vladimir Putin has said so much since the start of his term, and done so little – this has been to advocate the two-state solution in public while in private to impose a do-nothing, say-catchword line on diplomats and military officials, and the state media.
The gap between the Kremlin and the General Staff and Defense Ministry became visible in September 2018 after the Israel Air Force caused the shoot-down in Syria of a Russian Ilyushin-20M electronic reconnaissance aircraft, and the killing of all fifteen crewmen on board. At that time the Russian military expressed a loss of confidence which had not been seen in public since President Boris Yeltsin countermanded orders for Russian military support of Serbia under NATO bombing between March and June 1999, and dismissed Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov on the US demand.
In the present fighting between Palestinian, Arab and Israeli forces, the options for Russian action are numerous; the public debate over what the options should be has been nugatory. There have been no national opinion polls; no State Duma debate; no meeting of the Security Council since October 3.October 16, 2023 at 2:17 am #144790

“There is a grave danger that what we are witnessing may be a repeat of the 1948 Nakba, and the 1967 Naksa, yet on a larger scale,” she warned, referring to Israel’s mass expulsions of at least 1 million Palestinians from their homes and land in 1947-48 and 1967. “The international community must do everything to stop this from happening again.”

The world’s largest study on light exposure and its impact on mental health, with almost 87,000 participants, has found that increased exposure to light at night increases a person’s risk for psychiatric disorders such as anxiety, bipolar and PTSD severity as well as self-harm. Importantly, the study also found that increasing exposure to daytime light can act like a non-pharmacological means for reducing psychosis risk.
Humans in modern, industrialized times have literally turned our biological systems upside down. According to Associate Professor Cain, our brains evolved to work best with bright light in the day and then with almost no light at night.
“Humans today challenge this biology, spending around 90% of the day indoors under electric lighting which is too dim during the day and too bright at night compared to natural light and dark cycles. It is confusing our bodies and making us unwell,” he said.

re. language issue, Ukraine, meme: “Nobody speaks Ukrainian.”
When the Donesk, Lugansk Oblasts split from Ukr-Kiev, 2014, one of the first things they did, in the space of a very few months, was to align the educational system (roughly, 6 -14 + years) with the Russian one. They up-ended the curriculum, changed the marking system to the Russian one – the aim was for children, later young ppl, to be able to qualify automatically to enter all schools (primary, high school, vocational, Uni..) in Russia.
Russia supported this effort and sent some financial support (afaik not tremendous ..?) but school books aplenty. This has worked out, the Russian ‘acceptance’ is automatic.
Ukr. post 1990, had a very peculiar basic edu. system. Parents could choose if they wanted their children to be educated in Russian or Ukrainian, with Ukr. naturally always being a ‘nationalistic’ choice. Anyway this meant that teachers either taught in one or the other lang. incl. say for math lessons, gym..
Basically, language was used as a ‘ethnic – political’ marker. Very bad…
In the D + L , teachers in or ‘of’ Ukranian were re-cycled, not fired. As the no. of pupils who wanted Ukr. education dropped, everyone just switched to Russian.
Naturally, this is a very broad summary.
