‘The Giver’ Shows Where ‘Net Neutrality’ Leads; Keeps on Giving if You Want it Too (video)

By: Arlen Williams

It is almost March and catching wind of the new ruling called “Net Neutrality,” I am beginning to be frightened.

Some may be reminded of the opening line of a story; just borrowed it. It’s a story about what happens toward the end of the road down which today’s ruling has just pushed us. Call it… Book Burning 2.0, with a technocracy update, in a muted, camel’s-head-in-the-tent fashion, pardon the mixed metaphor.

But that story’s dystopia may not even be as hideous as reality can become.

A number of fantasies and sci-fi stories about children and adolescents have become more and more popular in recent years, following the jet stream created by Harry Potter and The Hunger Games.

One of the best became adapted from its original novel to a movie last year; and as it turns out, The Giver is to the FCC and budding United Nations regulatory control of communications technology, what The Hunger Games is to Agenda 21, “sustainable development,” the EPA, and again, the UN. Have you seen the motion picture, yet? On disc or through an online service?

I just came across this brief set of Raymond Arroyo interviews, of its producer-star, Jeff Bridges, of producer Michael Flaherty, and of its author, Lois Lowry, from last August.

Gave it a micro-review without much spoiling of plot and showed a trailer last November: The Giver, the Movie, Out on Disc, Suggested.”

Enjoy! What children and young adults do you know who might?

Or, how about any friends or family childish enough to support the neutering of the power of free communications called Net Neutrality?

Obama the Anti-American, Now Defies the Court for Amnesty & #NAU

“The lawless one,” in the White House. President Antithesis (it’s like what Antichrist is to Jesus, but different… well, sort of different).

Obama defies judge, forges ahead with amnesty

As to the #NAU for North American Union, a.k.a., North American Integration, I may update this entry with more of that context, or may simply address how it all fits together elsewhere, later.

Commiserations with Gratitude to France, from Gulag Bound

By: Arlen Williams

To our dear neighbors in France,

We offer our sympathies and we humbly accept yours, as you share our embarrassment over John Kerry and of course, Barack Hussein Obama and the rest of the Democratic Party.

You don’t mind if we make it sort of small, do you?

(A written something like explanation of this, our Secretary of State’s darling moment for France, is provided elsewhere, including at Daily Signal.) 

If John wanted to apologize for not participating in the Paris solidarity march (did anyone really invite him?) perhaps he could have just shown this, from his iPod.


 
Or was Willie available? (He may still owe the federal government, as far as we know.) Harmonica is a nice touch, don’t you think?

#JeSuisWillie


 
Or how about something a little more up-tempo. These guys still around? Named after a French town, right?


 
Maybe we shouldn’t scoff. Maybe Mr. Kerry really has something here. Diplomacy by popular song? Remember, Coca-Cola kind of had the idea with “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.”

Any requests?

Maybe something with cowbell?

Whittle & Klavan Video: Showing-up Neo-Marxist Race-baiting Well

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

Washington-Booker-race-biz

“Critical Theory” — excellent! someone said it — at 6:42, to be exact. Well done, Mr. Whittle and Mr. Klavan too. 

 
Two more observations:

There really is still an unsettling residue of racism in America, among numerous whites and numerous blacks, and many of whatever shade one decides to notice — also among many “progressive” collectivists, in the Planned Plantation Parenthood (and Nazi) traditions. In the occult schemes of neo-Marxists it is much more effective to wrap their poison pearls of deceit around even a tiny grain of truth.

The extreme and violent behavior of the newly rehashed protesting provides a sort of Overton Window extension of the Marxist dialectic, in the Marxstream media controlled hive mind of way too many Americans. It is an imposed image that allows the likes of Mr. Dark Ops in the White House, Barack Obama (no racial pun intended) and his likes to pose as peacemakers, proposing whatever solutions by means of Marxian synthesis.

Should we elaborate on that? Feel free to tell us in comments, if so.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, Longfellow’s Reflection

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

Longfellow-Henry-W

For hate is strong,
And mocks the song…
 

 

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,

and wild and sweet
The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along
The unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound
The carols drowned

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,

And made forlorn
The households born

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;

“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,

With peace on earth, good-will to men.”

Tragic Boehner Boners Abound in ‘CROmnibus’ Funding Bill!

By: Arlen Williams

What is John Boehner thinking?

Perhaps I’ll take time to expound upon the answer (below) to my own question a bit later, but look at the loopholes in a CROmnibus that deserves to be thrown over the fiscal cliff.

Republicans leaving anti-rights restoration provision in appropriations bill
Holey cow, the loopholes! It’s a golden calf for amnesty. The big, central bankster financed, transnational tycoons who butter the Republican bosses’ bread want it bad. Think cheaper labor. Think North American Union/Integration; the plans have been in the works for years, semi-secret, semi… not. Think Great American Bring-down, as the wealthiest 1% of 1% float their money in overseas markets (and in the hoarding of United States resources).

The Giver, the Movie, Out on Disc, Suggested

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning
to be frightened.

And so the story beings. Written two decades ago, it has been called the first dystopian novel for youths, something notable to Gulag Bound. While it was still fresh on the scene, Jeff Bridges began seeking to make a movie of it, at first hoping his father Lloyd could play its elder lead. Sixteen years later he received that role, himself.

GiverCharacterMap

It is almost December and now the film may be seen in the solitude of home; and as it happens, the story has something of a Christmas theme. Call it Christmastide in one dream of a post-Agenda 21 world. Is such a thing “sustainable?”

In this instance, the author of the book, Lois Lowry, recommends the movie. I confess seeing more movies end-to-end than reading books that way, especially since the alarms of our very dystopically prone 2008. Books are great for taking in nearly the full set of meanings and contexts intended by an author full of thoughts. Movies take less time to tell the story, while resting the intention-juggling concentrator of one’s mind.

A well made film may focus on the main things and despite its relatively fast pace, furnish space for the viewer’s filling-in of his own first and second impressions.

Main things I was very pleased to find this movie zeroing-in upon are four observations I’ve been grateful to gain over the years, about collectivist, statist, elitist engineered, and perversely labeled “progressive” societies:

  • they lie, even against nature itself, especially human nature
  • they steal, possessions and freedom, and where they may…
  • they coerce, even to extort one’s due role of who He is under God
  • inevitably, in one way or various others, they murder.

And here we are, almost December of 2014 and how many are coming to understand?


To understand adequately we must receive what is given from the greatest, outside of us, outside what many would allow.

Barack Obama’s 11-5 Presser: Sociopath? Possessed? or Just a Collectivist Puppet?

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

“But the principles that we’re fighting for — the — the — the things that motivate me every single day
and motivate my staff every day — those things aren’t going to change.”
 

Is the Man in the White House Mentally Ill? asks Dave Daubenmire, of Pass The Salt Ministries. About my own title, he wonders about the first two possibilities. Then he cites the characteristics he found which generally profile a sociopath. I chipped in the third option, just a collectivist puppet. My caveat about it is the one I have in much of the work of identifying and understanding collectivists who, one way or another, are achievers within the globalist, statist/cartelizer complex. Beware the fallacy of presumed mutual exclusion between apparent alternatives.

I have seen assessments of Obama’s quite apparent narcissism since 2009. One easily sees anti-social behavior in, for just one example, his alliance with Planned Parenthood, seventy-nine percent of whose busy abortion mills are in or within walking distance of black and Hispanic communities. Obama’s collectivist and pro-jihadi alliances and characteristics are the subject of numerous books and documentaries — and the news itself, if one understands the man.

Does it not have to take someone quite sociopathic in nature to lead others in the demonic work of Marxofascism? (Neo-Marxism, state capitalism, or redistributive corporatism, if you prefer.) It deceives, it cheats, it steals, and somehow, it always seems to murder along the way, often in great, quantity of innocent victims — and quality of its opposition. The patterns are clear, whether from the last one-hundred years of world history, or dating back to the French Revolution.

As for the occult, one may also read the published attestation about Obama at the 2009 Democratic National Convention in Denver, his entering a private room with others, who then engage in odd and disturbing chanting; then his coming out a noticeably more confident and dynamic man, according to that hearsay account.

Without taking quotations out of Mr. Daubenmire’s well constructed context, here is the link again, to his brief article.
