Alison Chabloz
The Jewish Chronicle seems dismayed that the singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz has escaped jail time, at least for the time being. But the message conveyed by Ms. Chabloz’s conviction is devastating for Britain. This kingdom has, in just a short time, become a crude authoritarian state.

Things Twice

The Eylof Östrem Blog is a bastion of Liberal values Harri, if you read the piece you will find that it is very thoughtful and the point he makes is that a particular passage taken from a famous analysis of German acquiescence to the Holocaust demonstrated a process that by degrees closes down freedom of speech and freedom of thought.http://oestrem.com/thingstwice/2013/09/this-machine/

“This Machine . . . “

This Machine Kills Fascists
“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Obama, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.”
... and this machine doesn't
… and this machine doesn’t
Some indices to keep an eye on:
  • The manipulation of democratic institutions by a relatively small group of people in power.
  • The level of secrecy, including the passing of secret laws to be used by secret courts.
  • The close ties between governmental and corporative interests with huge economic resources. As Mussolini put it: “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.”
  • The use of police force and judiciary persecution to stifle opposition and critical investigation, e.g. the prosecution of Barrett Brown, Chelsea Manning, and — not yet consummated — Glenn Greenwald and Edward Snowden.
  • The percentage of GNP spent on military and police.
  • The skilled use of Orwellian Doublespeak.
