Crypto-Idolatry: The Theology of Bitcoin — NEWPOLITY

A pretty good criticism of Bitcoin - which applies more or less equally to all the money people are using today really. Magic spells like money need ritual.

Who's The REAL LIAR?! Assange or MAINSTREAM MEDIA?

Russel Brand on Julian Assange's treatment by the courts and the media. Note all the video-clips are from RT and Al Jazera etc because UK media just don't touch it. One of the most obvious clues that our media is all in fact state propaganda, that it all knows to ignore the story when they should.

How the BBC let climate deniers walk all over it | George Monbiot | The Guardian

George Monbiot in the Guardian:If the oil companies are to be held to account, so should the media that amplified their voices. It scarcely needs to be said that the billionaire press took the lead in attacking climate science. After all, the owners have long perceived an attack on one corporation or plutocrat as an attack on all. But far more dangerous were the public sector broadcasters – which tend to be taken more seriously, as they are widely seen as independent and unbiased.

Edward Snowden calls for spyware trade ban amid Pegasus revelations | Edward Snowden | The Guardian

Pegasus is phone-tapping software, sold by private companies. Snowdon says:For traditional police operations to plant bugs or wiretap a suspect’s phone, law enforcement would need to “break into somebody’s house, or go to their car, or go to their office, and we’d like to think they’ll probably get a warrant”.But commercial spyware made it cost-efficient for targeted surveillance against vastly more people. “If they can do the same thing from a distance, with little cost and no risk, they begin to do it all the time, against everyone who’s even marginally of interest,”
