    I've always wondered who this Will guy is, a lot of stuff seems to get done at Will, he always gets shot at a lot too, you always here the officer in charge saying fire at Will, poor bloke you have to feel sorry for him. ;)

    Young boys in the park jumpers for goalpost that's what footballs all about isn't it.

  • Ford: So what is the attraction of being a Vogon guard? The leather, the machismo, the girls?

    Guard: No, it's mainly the shouting. Resistance IS useless.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

    Would it be ‘Beyond The Door’? Just a mad guess…


    But it’s basically about the puzzle of two guards both guarding two separate doors, one of which leads to freedom and the other to death. The question is which guard knows which is which, when one of them is a liar and the other always tells the truth. You can only ask one yes or no question, so the puzzle is…which question do you ask?

  • Am I the only one who is totally fed up with charity adverts for Yemen. Why don't we just drop the bomb on them and put them out of our misery?

    I can’t say I’ve noticed them, Heero. That’s one of the advantages of not watching live TV!

    Very interesting, Norra and sadly this "dumbing down" of society is not only occurring in America. It's prevalent in Britain today.


    Look at just one of the indicators that Sagan identifies: The control of technological power.


    Technological power is increasingly falling into the hands of the few. For this, we can identify the growing power of large technological corporations, some of whom have economies greater than that of some nation states. These are run by men who have no responsibility to their societies but rather, dedicate themselves to expanding and enlarging, not for beneficial or altruistic reasons, but for the acquisition of power.


    When a man (or a group of individuals) acquire more wealth than they can spend or use in a lifetime, what else is there for them to achieve..? What motivates them to get out of bed in the morning..? Some - Rupert Murdoch is a prime example of this - turn away from wealth acquisition because, well, the money just continues to roll in on its own now. They don't have to work at it any more.


    And so they turn their energies towards shaping the world in their own image. Becoming Lord of all they survey.... acquiring power instead of money because..... well.... you'd have to ask them why. Do they want to change the world in a way that will endure after their death..... their legacy being a form of immortality...? Is it ideological...? A desire to make the world dance to their political tune..? Do they do it for no other reason than that they can..? Raw, naked lust for power for its own sake...?


    Power and influence narrowed down to the point where it is controlled by a small number of people who can make governments jump is a dangerous thing. We don't vote for the likes of Rupert Murdoch. They can't be deposed. And they are dangerous because they control the wealth and use it to control the politicians.


    We aren't there yet.... not completely. But we're heading in that direction.


    Global control is the ultimate - unintended, but nevertheless inevitable - goal of Neoliberalism.


    Greed knows no boundaries.

    Nobody likes the British anymore. We don't even like ourselves.

  • You were doing really well until you used Murdoch as your example. He is an old school media mogul for sure but definitely not what Norra was talking about. Perhaps Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Besos and special award to Jack Dorsey would be more appropriate examples. Not surprised you think Murdoch is the threat. You probably still see those I suggest as the resistance? They all pose much bigger societal threats.

    Celebrate it, Anticipate it, Yesterday's faded, Nothing can change it, Life's what you make it

  • Murdoch is small time compared to the big guys running the show like the banks and Rothschilds. There lays problem that has built the foundation for the rest to spore from like fungus.


    Another really interesting one here where tackles the issue of global warming. Slip past the long intro. This was my bedtime story last night ;)

    Personally I've seen any of these ads, but I rarely, beyond the news, get to watch much tv at the moment in any case.


    I'm sure you don't mean that about Yemen, but constant ads won't help their cause, that's for sure.
