Here's 11 examples of political correctness gone mad. 1. The BBC has dropped the use of the terms Before Christ (BC) and Anno Domini (AD) on one of their programmes and decided that the terms 'Before Common Era' / 'Common Era' are more appropriate 2. The European Parliament introduced proposals to outlaw titles stating marital status such as 'Miss' and 'Mrs' so as not to cause offence.
Up next in our excursion into subversion , is the manipulation of racial and ethnic politics for the purpose of the old divide and conquer routine. Here again, our host Yuri Bezmenov tells us how this technique was used and brutally implemented in communist Russia. Racial and ethnic interrelations is one of the most vulnerable areas for demoralization. There is not a single Communist country where racial groups are 'equal' and enjoy as much freedom to develop themselves culturally and economically as in America. Actually, there are not too many “capitalist” countries where ethnic minorities have it as good as in the USA.

In the initial stages of nearly every recorded tyranny, the saucer eyed dumbstruck masses exhibit astonishing and masterful skill when denying reality. The facts behind their dire circumstances and of their antagonistic government become a source of cynical psychological gameplay rather than a source of legitimate concern. Their desperate need to maintain their normalcy bias creates a memory and observation vacuum in which all that runs counter to their false assumptions and preconceptions disappears forever. It is as if they truly cannot see the color of the sky, or the boot on their face. The concrete world of truth becomes a dream, an illusion that can be heeded or completely ignored depending on one’s mood.
Fábio Pannunzio PIG, de acordo com a Wikipédia, significa “Partido da Imprensa Golpista (comumente abreviado para PIG ou PiG) . É uma expressão usada por órgãos de imprensa e blogs políticos de orientação de esquerda para se referir a órgãos de imprensa e jornalistas por eles considerados tendenciosos, que se utilizariam do que chamam grande mídia como meio de propagar suas ideias e tentar desestabilizar governos de orientação política contrária” . PIG, na minha modesta maneira de ver as coisas, é uma expressão negativa, pejorativa, estigmatizante, com a qual o blogueiro Paulo Henrique e seus mujahidins achincalham todos os que não concordam com as bobagens que ele escreve. PIG, porco, é aquele que não se enquadra no maniqueísmo das categorias e das conveniências comerciais do blogueiro. É quem não se alinha ao neobolcheviquismo de araque de PHA.
Alex Jones & Aaron Dykes Prison Planet.com March 15, 2012 Kony 2012, hyped on the backs of celebrities and do-gooders, is revealed for what it is– a propaganda salvo for a continent wide invasion of Africa. Yes, the mantra War is Peace is once again drumming U.S. soldiers into further conflict. Research makes clear that KONY is a sophisticated psy-op to muster popular support for what is, in reality, nothing more than a geostrategic positioning vis-a-vis China for oil and mineral resources, as well as an effort to legitimize the U.S. military’s AFRICOM unit in the region through newly-branded “humanitarian” interventions.
In responses to my recent postings I have encountered scepticism about the validity or relevance of Marxian economics today. So I thought it would be worth explaining a few reasons why he has to be taken very seriously as an economist. It feels a bit like summarizing Proust in 100 words to say this but, the two most important things that Marx wrote about the economy were that labour is the source of exchange value, and that the incomes of the propertied classes derived from the exploitation of labour.
I shall refute here the proposition that “the economic value of all goods and services is derived from the cost of their production and ultimately from the labor expended on their creation—be it measured in terms of the time, effort, or disutility required to produce the goods or services in question—and the labor expended on the creation of goods necessarily endows them with economic value.” This proposition is the essence of the labor theory of value, a false view nonetheless embraced by such notable thinkers as Thomas Aquinas and Adam Smith and used by Karl Marx to justify socialism. I shall then argue that the utility theory, which views economic value as identical to the benefits gained by individuals from goods and services, is a superior explanation of economic value. Refutations of the Erroneous Theory Refutation 1: Argument from Naturally Occurring Valuable Goods : There are economically valuable goods which do not require nearly any labor to produce.
