Rate-your-politician

31 Mar , 2012 Uncategorized

I propose a new way to look at politics. It would be “rate-your-politician”. This would involve a web site and everyone gets to create an account there – there should be a way to verify accounts but I suppose this would work as an app on Facebook.

If I were Al Qaeda – how would attack “the great satan” ?

Let’s be clear about one simple fact: for me islamic radicals represent evil. And yes, the word evil is a “subjective” assessment.

Why I am leaving the Empire, by Darth Vader

14 Mar , 2012 Uncategorized

TODAY is my last day at the Empire. After almost 12 years, first as a summer intern, then in the Death Star and now in London, I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its massive, genocidal space machines. And I can honestly say that […]

The Final Disillusion

Looking at the last ten thousand years the only conclusion is – how many people died because of tyranny and oppression? Of the unnatural deaths possibly more than half were directly or indirectly attributable to force or oppression by other humans.
