I’m going to be somewhat cryptic in this post because I’m attempting to get in underneath China’s diligent web checking people.
China has been kidnapping large numbers of artists and intellectuals who completely disappear. They recently took the artist in this photo. While he was being taken away he snapped the photo of his reflection inside an elevator. He’s very famous. He has been totally vanished by the Chinese.
Many others have too. They are being taken and vanished because China is very afraid of something.
They are afraid of something big. Something that was to be peaceful – the way it has been in some other countries recently. But in China you cannot do it peacefully. You will be murdered if you try to do it peacefully.
You must do it with an explosion.
You must do it quickly.
The Chinese can eliminate their problem. The problem is usually to be found wearing a uniform. It must be eliminated quickly and by any means at hand. If you are in China, you are living in a massive slave camp that provides slave labor to Western corporations. You might decide that you want to end your slavery.
In a stunning rebuke to the ongoing U.S. policy of ‘useful dialog’ with the Arab world’s collection of brutal, murdering dictators, the people of Egypt are staging one of the great revolutions in history by occupying the streets of Egypt’s major cities and burning the headquarters of the brutal and thuggish regime that has held power there for over 30 years. It is very likely that this ongoing revolution is as significant an event as the fall of the Soviet Union in the late 1980s. All dictators and the people attached to them, whether they be Arab or otherwise, sign their own death warrants as soon as they take power, giving the people an undeniable right to eliminate them by any means necessary. The current U.S. administration shows itself to be woefully out of step with events as it insists that protesters chart a course for the future through dialog with Mubarak! Mubarak is as dead as King Tut’s mummy. I suspect that most of the people in Egypt recognize that President Obama has been secretly complicit in the activities of dictator Mubarak and his torture facilities. As buildings burn in Cairo, so does U.S. policy toward the brutal, barbaric, and inhuman torturers who lead most of the Arab world. The sad truth of the matter is that in the U.S. we have a president who completely and unreservedly supports a criminal dictator. Shame on the U.S. Go Egypt!
Cartoonist Matt Bors has posted a funny AIG cartoon on his blog. He’s got a whole site full of these. He was inspired for this strip by the AIG executive who recently resigned and whined about how the company was treating him. I guess I’d whine too if I woke up one day and realized I was evil.
