ISIS / ISIL – Cui bono? You guessed it…

We did not write a lot about ISIS – actually the topic would deserve a lot of writing. Then again, the creation and advent of ISIS was so incredibly obvious; those who followed the topic and the making of the Syrian War knew that pretty soon this headline was prone to happen

“Secret Pentagon report reveals West saw ISIS as strategic asset. Anti-ISIS coalition knowingly sponsored violent extremists to ‘isolate’ Assad, rollback ‘Shia expansion'”

And with this, pretty much everything relevant about ISIS / ISIL for the typical mainstream Western is said.Another “conspiracy theory” just became “wellknown truth”… This changes everything – the whole narrative they told us (presumed that you still believed it). The advent of this ultra brutal and comfortably equipped extremist movement ISIS (and actually the whole “islamic terror”-story) was the main legitimacy of the installment of mass surveillance and civil-liberties-abolishment of our time…

War is nothing but a campaign. Freedom nothing but a brand name

After the elections…

After the elections, the accelerator pedal towards ‘1984’ is pushed hard. David Cameron will launch soon a new bill to cope with ‘extremist ideology’. This bill will be pushed through under the pretense of fighting islamist extremism. Once in place, we’ll soon find that also other views can be deemed ‘extremist’ (1,2)…

Halleluja!

Behind Varoufakis – and the personal value of an economics curriculum

Paradigm change is knocking evermore louder on your door…

Some incredible quotes (may be slightly stylized)

  • “EU is built on myths”
  • “EU was never meant to be democratic – it is an American Project”
  • “Eurozone never designed to sustain a shock”
  • “Great Financial Crisis orchestrated by Wallstreet and the twin deficits of America [through surplus recycling]
  • “Syriza may have to forge alliances with the IMF-bastards”
  • “After any form of Greek default, capital controls need to be put in place in Portugal. Domino Effect follows in Italy and France. Germany will leave the Euro before and form some ‘northern Eurozone’. The ‘south’ will face stagflation and dire times
  • “Gigantic amounts of unused purchasing power in the EU” / “The crisis is a coordination fail – nobody invests out of fear”
  •  “Truth of capitalism not found in mathematical models”
  • “Don’t read [Keynes’] General Theory

About the self

  • “My biggest fear is that I get corrupted by the privileges of power”
  • “[The movie] Matrix is a (impressionistic) documentary of the world we live in”
  • “None of my political initiatives are founded on my academic / professional background in economics – but the titles allow me to talk to the IMF, etc.”
  • “Anybody who doesn’t speak the economic language simply isn’t heared by the high and mighty, the hedgefunds, the FED”
  • “Value of studying economics is to see through the lies just as studying the bible did centuries ago. However, I cannot recommend without bad moral feelings this curriculum to any of my beloved ones – the pain of obstructing oneself half of your life is not worth it – there are better books to read out there”
  • The [right-wing] economic departement of Sydney employed me, because not even they could read my models
