YouContinue reading “Impressions From My First Trip to China”

We Aren’t Really Free. Here’s Why.

. . We live in a far less free society than most of us think. We are surrounded by prison bars actually, but they are hard to see unless someone points them out.

US Nonsense About China is (almost) Impossible to Believe. Millions still do.

. . Even I found this out by just a simple and careful reading of the mainstream Wall St media coverage of this Chinese “war-mongering” – the recent sending of Chinese airforce planes into “the airspace” of Taiwan.

So, We Have Another Totally Ignored Leak on Corruption

. So, now we have the “Pandora Papers”. Some more extremely brave people have risked everything to bring this information to the world. Why did they bother?

Yes,Continue reading “So, We Have Another Totally Ignored Leak on Corruption”

Why Are Ordinary People Always Ignored?

. Since I have become much more aware of how life and the world actually function – as opposed to my previous life where I was living in a cosy blanketed dream world – I have been active in corresponding with official people and public organizations about the things that they say which are demonstrablyContinue reading “Why Are Ordinary People Always Ignored?”

How Media Lies to You

“Why Your Struggle is Invisible” – Part 2

. .

Hong Kong & Shanghai – The “Exotic” Cities.

. One of the more delightful and disturbing things I have learned in recent years is how the use of pleasant sounding words of the english language mask often hideous and immoral acts.
