BLOGIRAN - Freedom Or Death?

What are we fighting for,

don't ask me I don't give a damn,

the next stop is IRAN.

Iran? The US says it now wants to bring Freedom to the peoples of Iran, but does it want to 'Iraqi-fi' the country? And since when did Freedom resemble Death and Destruction?

The drums have been a-banging on the net again, this time calling for the US of A to bring Freedom and Democracy to the Iranian population. Sceptics have a strange feeling of deja-vu of course when the US uses these words with regards to another middle-east country. And with damn good reason too.

After the multitude of reasons spieled out about for the reasons to invade Iraq, the US finally chose to throw down the 'Freedom and Democracy' card. Not that anyone with an ounce of brain energy actually bought that nonsense. After all, how can you give people 'Freedom and Democracy' by killing them with depleted uranium, torturing them, and stealing their countries resources?

If the US thinks this is showing people the 'Good Life', then Up must be Down, and Black must be White....

And just whom exactly is requesting that we all support the US effort to bring the Good Life to Iran?

Why it's the good folks at :

They are calling for good, wholesome peoples the world over to gather together in the name of all that is beautiful to free Iran!!!

Free to plunder asunder, to kill and maim, steal and abuse, and free for American companies to rape.

Of course, only the US with it's good conscious and military might, can bring this fabled freedom. And I'm not wanting to sound redundant here, but the US only knows one way to bring these types of luxuries to a sovereign nation, so better remember the body-bags.... are asking for bloggers and activists to write blog entries, letters to newspapers, letters to representatives in positions of power etc.. for them to state their unequivocal support for a US invasion of Iran.... err sorry...... For the US to bring Freedom to Iran!!!!!

My, what a kind gesture. The US just gives and gives till it hurts..... everyone.

Take this titbit from one of their 'supporting blogs'.

"Is it not time for President Bush to put an end to the charade? Isn't it time for the President of the Free World to act on all the rhetoric that has come out of Washington and announce a real policy in support of The Iranian people, a policy that will put European officials who have worked hard to maintain the clerical regime to shame?"

Yeah.... Those bad Europeans.. They just want the Iranian peoples to live in hell. While the US just wants to help and set them free. Just like they did with those oppressed Iraqis and Afghanis.

And just look how free they are now? My they are just basking in sunny freedom, while their oil is basking in American hands.

BS in a word. appears to be yet another highly suspicious site, set up for the purpose of spinning public opinion to accept an invasion of Iran.

But they will try to convince any unwitting populace that they are only trying to help, "We aint killing, we be setting free...."


Please don't take this nonsense at face value. Lies, lies, damned lies. And these folk know it well too.

If you listen to the devil, he will tell you only what you want to hear.

Searching For Truth In All The Wrong Places

Life in general, intermittently throws up various mysteries for humanity to figure-out. Among the broad spectrum of anomalies we can highlight, are;

UFO's, Paranormal Events, Bigfoot and Vampires.

However, we can also include more widespread contemporary events such as the JFK assassination, and the dealings that transpired on 9/11/2001, into this melting pot of 'out of the ordinary' matters that haunt mankind.

There may not be immediately visible comparisons between varied subjects such as UFO's, and the events surrounding 9/11. But, they are similar in that the majority of society views them subjectively, and not objectively.

UFO's do exist, that is a fact that even the US Air Force admits. They may not know what they are, and they may even explain most of them away as the 'Planet Venus', or 'Marsh Gas', but Unidentified Flying Objects are a real, live phenomenon. But these poor explanations do not satisfy observers who prefer a more objective analysis.

Likewise, the events surrounding 9/11 are very similar. The government will explain the circumstances surrounding that tragic day as the evil deeds of' 'Cave Dwelling Hijackers', or as sick people who 'Hate Freedom'. But these explanations also do not satisfy observers who prefer a more objective analysis of the actual events.

Well, that leads one to the conclusion that objective observers cannot take the governments words at face value (at least not all the time). With this realisation, one is forced to look elsewhere for the answers they seek, be it regarding the UFO question, the 9/11 questions, or to plainly ask why is humanity destroying itself?

There are many alternative sources of information out there, especially in cyber-land who are willing to ask the deeper questions. These sources are willing to disbelieve official explanations, if they are not satisfied for any objective reason.

Perhaps one person witnessed a huge red flashing object above their head, which zipped off at 5,000 kph into nothingness, but read in the paper the next day reports of 'Weather Balloons'. Or perhaps an observer watched a small missile, or a small jet fly and blow up into the Pentagon, and read in the paper that it was a large Boeing 747 that hit the Pentagon.

People with such questions look to alternative sources for their answers -and they look to sources such as Parabola magazine.

Parabola..... famed for objectively dissecting anomalous subjects through analysing relevant passages from established works, and cross-referencing these to new articles, writings and expoundings. The magazine of 'Myth and Tradition' which includes material from many cultures and perspectives which serve to explain these hidden, murky areas that haunt our world.

Parabola.... The magazine that rejected an advert for Laura Knight-Jadczyk's new book, Secret History Of The World....?!?!

Hold on one minute....!!!!!!

With this flat out refusal, I was very surprised.

Laura Knight-Jadczyk's mission was very similar to Parabola's, I always thought. They both were prepared to go beyond the official pale to seek answers to difficult questions. They both kept an open mind when questioning anomalous events.

Why would Parabola reject such an advert? An advert for a book, that in my view asks similar questions to the ones Parabola asks?

I was stumped as I read about this eyebrow raising happening? So I looked into the matter more and found this from a blog entry.

Wondering what reasons the folks at the magazine had for their refusal to accept the placement of an ad, I called their advertising representative. After several minutes of polite back and forth I was finally given to understand that the book was considered to be too "sensationalistic" and "not something they wanted to promote". I could only think: if only they knew how much in common their publication had with the 'SHotW', if only how they saw how much of an extension of it was, if they cared about thematerial they were publishing why weren't they more open - to an ad for abook with very related subject matter???

From these facts I can surmise that Parabola are not as open as they like to make out they are. Or that perhaps Laura Knight-Jadczyk's book is closer to the truth than Parabola are prepared to face?

The reader can make up their own mind, as I have.

But one thing is for sure, the truth is out there, but don't expect Parabola to lead you to it.

Happy Slapping Mania

A strange, twisted and violent phenomenon has appeared in the UK over the past few months - That of 'Happy Slapping'.

What basically happens, is groups of young folk will 'Slap' complete strangers, while their friends capture the funny episode on their mobile phones. The movies are then uploaded to various sites, or emailed to friends, forums etc.

But there is nothing particularly amusing about this peculiar new trend at all.

Exactly what is being perpetrated is nothing like a Friendly Slap (whatever that is anyway..?). There have been many reports of complete strangers having the living daylights kicked out of them, while a good natured individual will record the torrid episode. So far, an eleven year old girl has been raped by 'Happy Slappers'.

Britain has always had a violent society, and many folk are strangely proud of this fact. The famed 'British Bulldog' image is taken to a stereotypical understanding, by those who innately identify that brawn is better than brains.

How we love these overhyped, testosteroned-up, vicious images of UK society. And we just desire to love all those angry, rebelious, scary, gang-land types -

The Krays, Sid Vicious, Ronnie Biggs.
(to name a few)

Take for example the British film industry; nearly every movie produced in recent times are aggressive Ganster movies (or brain-dead love movies like LOVE ACTUALLY..!?)

'Get Carter'
'The 51st State'
'Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels'

Strangely enough.. I enjoyed most of these films, Michael Caine is one of my fav actors. But the fact remains for some reason, our society revels in violent behaviour.

Some folks think programmes like Jackass are responsible for the happy-slap trends. Perhaps to a degree. After all, monkey-see, monkey-do...

Though in saying that, for all our systems of religion, spirituality, care-for-others mentalities - there is a heavy counterweight of negativity that DOES APPEAR TO BE the status quo. Or in other words, it's the natural dominant state of our world. And some folks are just born to raise hell. It's simply who they are.

If anyone spends some time studying mankind and the world he lives in, this conclusion is inevitable.

Trends like 'Happy Slapping' do come and go - likewise wars come and go too. And there is not a thing one man alone can do about it....

Well, there is one large exception - We can learn to the best of our knowledge EXACTLY how this reality works - And that includes what drives humanity to violent behaviour.

For me, there is one book out there that opened the door to understand why we live in the world that we do (and I'm still learning...).

That book is Laura Knight-Jadczyk's, Secret History Of The World.

This book introduces the concept that the world is indeed perfect as it is, warts, wars and all; that all tribulations are lessons; and that learning to evolve and grow - spiritually and mentally - is the only way to understand WHY we are here.

This is THE most important book you will ever read.
