[Fundamentalism] Meet The Science Extremists

Posted by Lex Fear on February 10, 2009

Religion has Osama Bin Laden*, politics has it’s fair share of Stalins and Hitlers, Atheism has Auvinen,  Sport has hooligans and Hollywood has Uwe Boll (just kidding). What about Science?

Five Mad Scientists Who Went Too Far in the Name of Science

*or is that politics?

[Ideologies] Right-Minded Individuals

Posted by Lex Fear on May 25, 2007

This Post Is Rated: M for You will probably be Mildly offended. But you won’t be able to explain why.

A while back Bryan Ferry was quoted in The Grauniad about his comments praising Nazi aesthetics.

“I apologise unreservedly for any offense caused by my comments… I, like every right-minded individual, find the Nazi regime, and all it stood for, evil and abhorrent.”

I found it interesting he referenced right-minded individuals (no, I don’t mean politically). I find it interesting because it causes me to wonder, do right-minded individuals really find the Nazi regime abhorrent? I think to verify that, we would need to know who would be considered a ‘right-minded individual’. We also need to establish what exactly was abhorrent about the Nazi regime?

Nazism, defined by Wikipedia is:

I haven’t listed every single reference on Wikipedia (one hotly disputed section argues that Nazism was anti-capitalist which is a joke), nevertheless these are the main associations with Nazi ideology. You will notice that ethnic nationalism, anti-liberalism, anti-communism and nationalism are on this list. Strangely enough, you can find examples of large groups of people who support these ideologies alive and well today (particularly in regards to the American government).

So is it really right-minded to oppose these ideologies? I suspect that many ‘right-minded individuals’ were caught up in the Nazi rhetoric before we could look back in hindsight knowing it was all evil and abhorrent. After all, how else would Hitler rise to power if he was not charismatic and good at blending a patriotic and religious message?

Perhaps being ‘right-minded’ is not enough… or perhaps it’s not about being ‘right-minded’ at all. The problem with using a term such as ‘right-minded’ is that it can only be defined in relative terms. Instead of acknowledging what is essentially evil or abhorrent, we define it as evil and abhorrent only as long as the majority of what we consider ‘right-minded individuals’ find it evil and abhorrent.

See how easy it is to fall into the trap of circular reasoning?

Why am I making such a meal of this? Because it’s quite apparent to me that “I, like every right-minded individual” is a rhetorical statement.

It’s important for us to analyse what makes an ideology evil, and to stand against it as a matter of principal. We should not stand against an ideology simply because someone we dislike believes in it, or everyone agrees it’s wrong – otherwise we will not recognise true evil when it stares us in the face.

[Global Alarming] The environMENTAL Propaganda Machine

Posted by Lex Fear on March 11, 2007

Being a Christian, I have always believed in treating animals and the environMENT with respect. However, I believe God created the world for us and not the other way round. We are to treat it with respect as stewards (and we will possibly be held to account), but ultimately humans are sacred beings, infinitely more important.

It was heartening to see when communities started talking about the environment, also when churches finally joined the bandwagon, I didn’t mind. But once the government got hold of it the subject has gone environMENTAL, and the Climate Nazis moved in. The Climate Nazis do not care about human life, only being seen to be green.

As with all taxes and government policy, it affects the poorest of society- in this case we are talking global society. From reverting air travel to a luxury of the rich to denying Africans basic necessities for living.

A recent Channel 4 documentary highlights the propaganda and abuses of the Global Warming Swindle, the documentary has been split up on YouTube. They are about 10 minutes long each, but worth viewing:

C4: The Great Global Warming Swindle
Introduction
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6
Part 7
Part 8

What’s that big orange ball thing in the sky? It’s the sun! Fancy that! I wonder if that has any effect on the climate? hmm…

Why should the many sacrifice their 1-2 flights a year, where they fly cattle (thus making use of all available space), when Climate Nazis and the Elite fly 100’s of trips on private or half-full jets? Perhaps if these people were to sacrifice their annual travel, the same amount of co2 could be cut as it would all of those on the bottom rung of society:

Al Gore
Ken Livingstone
Tony Blair
Gordon Brown
David Cameron
Not to mention all the celebrities…

Regardless, it’s a lie which has been bought by anti-globalisation and government taxation opportunists. “Top scientists” are now emerging to tell the tale of government spin. Elmo at Power Of Suggestion (P.O.S.) provides a list (follow the link):

“People keep saying this, but provide no names, no documentation, no evidence whatsoever to back it up. They just blame any opposition on oil money. Well, there are plenty of climate experts who are not in the employ of any oil or energy companies, but are tenured professors and department chairs at major universities.” – P.O.S.

It’s time the people read the facts and stood up to the environMENTAL propaganda machine- before it takes lives.

[False Security] An Immigration Problem – Part 2

Posted by Lex Fear on December 3, 2006

“It’s not Great Britain, it’s a crappy little Island with a complex. People are not queuing up to come and claim your benefits, there exists people in the world who would rather avoid the UK altogether…”

Read Part 1

“So, if we had said she was just visiting, there would be no problem and we could have got through?” I asked the pretty, young Asian immigration orificer who had been dealing with our case.
“Yes… but now you can’t and you have to leave the country. I’m really sorry, I can see you’re a nice couple and this has been a mistake, but unfortunately now it’s already been processed and your passport’s been stamped”.

[Xenophobia] An Immigration Problem – Part 1

Posted by Lex Fear on December 3, 2006

“I’m sick of being in a country led by a fascist government that uses fear and headlines to control the populace. This country wreaks of institutional paranoia…”

There is a real problem with immigration in this country, and I’m not talking about the intelligent people who want to come here to study or to work, I’m talking about the Immigration “Service” and the Home Office.

I find it difficult to be a good citizen at the best of times, but I realise more and more how difficult this government make it to be proud of Not-So-Great Britain. I’m sick of being in a country led by a fascist government that uses fear and headlines to control the populace. This country wreaks of institutional paranoia, and none so much as Immigration.

[Godless Republicans] Change The Reality!

Posted by Lex Fear on October 8, 2006

“Remember those history lessons at school where you learned about how Hitler manipulated the media (radio and magazines) to convert the country to Nazism? We are now witnessing history brought back to life”

I really wanted to blog on the topic of shamed Republican (R-FL) Mark Foley, but after the last few days I’ve ran out of energy. This was a combination of 6 hours working on the last post, being out clubbing Friday evening as part of my work leaving thing- then having to get up early on Saturday morning to go to the dentist about a large hole in my tooth (filling dropped out in the week). I felt like shipwreck this morning and my throat was sore (shouldn’t have smoked that second cigar). I didn’t really drink at all but after leaving the club at 2.30am, one of the guys persuaded us to go for curry. We left Birmingham at 3.30am and got to my friends by 4. Stayed there till 4.30 then drove home and got in at 5am.

So I’m glad to see that Josh has posted something on his blog, Silent Speaking:

“His [Newt Gingrich] statements just rub me the wrong way, and they are very telling of many politician’s refusal to humbly admit wrong without pointing the finger back at their enemies somehow; always blaming someone or something else … This is like the instictive argument of a child who tries to somehow cover his fault by saying ‘But he started it!’ or ‘but so-and-so did this’ implying ‘this’ was much worse than what he did as if that nullifies the fault somehow.

…the problem is Republicans certainly first found it advantagous to use Bill Clinton’s unscrupulous behavior to draw a distinction between themselves and the Democrats based upon ‘morals’ and ‘character”. And as Matthew 7 goes on to say in verse 2, For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Josh, Silent Speaking: But he started it!

The thing that has most impacted me about the affair is how the propaganda arm of the GOP, Fox News, showed video cuts on The O’Reilly Factor with a label running across the screen declaring him a member of the Democrats (D-FL). Remember those history lessons at school where you learned about how Hitler manipulated the media (radio and magazines) to convert the country to Nazism? We are now witnessing history brought back to life:

Source: The BRAD BLOG

This kind of thing should disturb anyone. The O’Reilly Factor is a pre-recorded show, this seems like a blatant attempt to subconsciously get it into the less discerning voters head, that it’s just another sexually immoral Democrat. I’m not going to go any further on this as plenty of other blogs have covered the issue in more detial, however I will leave you with Jon Stewart’s analysis of the blame game, and the shameful attempt to pass it onto (pass it off as) the Democrats:

[Glorious War] Lead Up To War With Iran – NSA Scandal

Posted by Lex Fear on April 23, 2006

An excellent post over at NSA Scandal by Glenn Greenwald. It is well worth reading the whole post but here is an excerpt:

“What is starkly apparent from this reptition is that their awareness of history and knowledge of the world is sadly confined to one singular event, which is all they know and which, rather bizarrely, they have a need to live over and over and over again.

To pro-Bush war supporters, the world is forever stuck in the 1930s. Every leader we don’t like is Adolph Hitler, a crazed and irrational lunatic who wants to dominate the world. Every country opposed to our interests is Nazi Germany. From this it follows that every warmonger is the glorious reincarnation of the brave and resolute Winston Churchill. And one who opposes or even questions any proposed war becomes the lowly and cowardly appeaser, Neville Chamberlain. For any and every conflict that arises, the U.S. is in the identical position of France and England in 1937  faced with an aggressive and militaristic Nazi Germany, will we shrink from our grand fighting duties in appeasement and fear, or will we stand tall and strong and wage glorious war?”

Anyone who likes what they read should check out his whole blog or the other blog that he writes: Unclaimed Territory.

[Bypassing Parliament] The UK Enabling Act 2006

Posted by Lex Fear on April 10, 2006

Here is a copy of an email I circulated recently. What I didn’t mention, as others have pointed out, it’s not so much this present touchy government that is to be feared, but the possibility of a future government abusing these powers. I also added a link to the Salem Witch Trials at the bottom, to give more perspective on how our authorities are operating.
