|183779 repeated (first post on the 3rd) and responded to thusly in the 5th comment:Conspiracy Theory Is for Liberals geek 8:58am Mon Jun 3 '02 comment#184060 Let me remind you: "[C]onspiracy theories have manageable implications. They imply that all was well once and that it can be okay again if only the conspirators can be removed. Conspiracy theories explain ills without forcing us to disavow society's underlying institutions. They allow us to admit horrors and to express our indignation and anger or undertake vendettas, but without rejecting the basic norms of society. We discover that a particular government official or corporate lawyer is bad, but the government and law per se remain okay. We urge getting rid of bad apples, but leaving the orchard intact. All this is convenient and seductive. We can reject specific candidates but not government, specific CEOs but not capitalism, specific writers, editors, and even owners of periodicals, but not mainstream media. We can reject vile manipulators, but not basic institutions. And we can continue to appeal to the institutions for recognition, status, or payment." If you radicals are investing energy in dethroning Dumbya, I think you're wasting your time. Leave that for the Democrats. Radicals look to the root causes of problems, and solve them there. Gossip and protests about conspiracy theory will not advance the revolution. "Conspiracy theories lead us to counterproductive and wrong priorities. There are many pressing issues for U.S. Leftists today -- preventing war in Iraq, restraining Israeli aggression, fighting the assault on civil liberties, exposing the phony U.S.-Russian nuclear arms deal, and so on. Unfortunately too many Leftists have gotten wrapped up in supporting the Democratic-party-led campaign to investigate what Bush knew and when. Just in the past few weeks, how much energy from people well on the Left has gone to the Bush question, with no credible gains, and away from directions where our energies are sorely needed? Leftists have gone from planning teach-ins on the Mideast to planning gatherings to talk about the detailed claims of who knew what when. (In fact, if we were to apply the "who benefits?" principle, we might ask whether conspiracy theorizing itself is a plot by the CIA to distract us all from the struggle against globalization? Imagine debating that conspiracy theory, hour after hour, and then debating about debating about....)" Radicals cut through the crap. Liberals wallow in it. Radicals work to solve real problems. Liberals look for convenient targets to pin problems on and then offer themselves as better rulers. Which side are you on?|
184400indy main: 'bartergod' by todd boyle (found via nettime) join the accountability kinspore I see (english) piet 2:54am Wed Jun 5 '02 (Modified on 3:16am Wed Jun 5 '02) article#184400 http://www.gldialtone.com/forums.htm (bunch gathered by T Boyle; this jargoo is approaching Ulrich von Beckerath's, Milhaud's, et al their subject matter in a totally new language; will it break through the dug incrowd this time?; sorry no art. icle Ulrich von Beckerath in english: http://poetpiet.tripod.com/ guest_appearances/Beckerath_on_peacemaking.htm) From: "Todd Boyle" Date: Mon Jul 31, 2000 10:29 pm Subject: Freenet, smart chips and bartergod Cal said Friday, July 21, on Digital Bearer Settlement List ---------- What is serving for money today already has no permanent store of value. The money of tomorrow will serve as a bearer of information with most likely (my guess) a negative carrying charge.... In short, what I am saying is look for a permanent divorce of the store of value function from the list of attributes of money. ---------- Hi Cal, WAP summary- MONEY IS INFORMATION: AMOUNT DIVORCED FROM THE LIST OF ATTRIBUTES BARTERGOD RULEZ Long version --a year ago I started ranting about shared transaction repositories explained at gldialtone.com/str.htm and payments on the host before that .gldialtone.com/endredundancy.htm , gldialtone.com/journalbus.htm etc. Now it seems, there might not be any server at all. At least 3 differnt possibilities for this. -------1. REA system of accounting has emerged with decentralized solutions for large scale production, that span enterprises; now the internet really enables it for the first time. msu.edu/~mccarth4/ ----------2. SCM people are are talking about a smart chip attached to every unit of production, even on every can of chickpeas in the supermarket. The cost of chips are getting down around 1 cent. -------3. Freenet-style distributed file systems offer glimpses of a magical transaction fabric. You may be able to participate in exchanges, send and receive payments, and even maintain your accounting system, with all your bits encrypted and scattered among numerous peers on the network. The intent of Freenet is there would be no server to regulate, censor, or shut down. Read Sean Dugan last week in Infoworld. This idea hit the mailing lists months ago. The portal mavens are rotating on this P2P thing, they're in a tizzy. Nasdaq in a dive. Can't figure out how to collect rents from peer-2-peer commerce. Think about the smart-chip proposition (item 2) -- What seems to emerge is a whole new network-based architecture where there is very little persistent storage or logic anyplace other than on the smart chips, and there is an encrypted token for every resource. Money, raw material, finished product. Account receivable or payable. Whatever. These tokens will have a beginning and an end. In eastern religion we had brahma, vishnu and shiva. The product chip would accompany the product to final owner and then the landfill. Anyways, these tokens are like "titles" to an automobiles. They represent the product. They might be bolted onto the product or they might travel the net. In REA-like systems they might be passed up and down the network along with the necessary XML document to explain the content (or perhaps, the XML is within the token). Chickpeas might not have brands. They might have reputations derived from the producers' reputations. Chickpeas might not have owners other than their producers. Every can of chickpeas is an LLC. Let's bust up those corporations. (grin) Workers might burn their charges into the chip when they bolt parts on the automobile, and get paid when the car is sold. You might have pennies or dollars invested in fifty thousand of these little buggers, and you will index them in your tokens directory, to maintain a sort of receivables control. And with no surrender of privacy, no big-brotherish system. The more you think of it, the weirder it gets. What does GAAP look like when there's no GL, and everything is humming along nicely with permissions and statuses stored on the labels of chickpeas? Note that there is NO intrinsic reason that everything in the economy has to be quantified in money anyways. Like so many other things, perhaps, money is a lesson we must unlearn. It has certain disadvantages lets face it. Perhaps the DNA will organize itself around a more efficient system of production. What is still lacking as far as I can see, are software algorithms for unconstrained multi-party bartering. What would really break the logjam would be a website where you would login and tell this godlike website what you need (from housing, utilities, food, transportation, thru entertainment etc. etc.) BarterGod would read your capabilities and performance history from the database and print out a list of places to go, and tasks for you to do. BarterGod would figure out what is possible, what the schedule is, how far away you're located, and calculate scenarios and proposals to members, to organize the labor. There is nothing but labor in the universe. There is no capital, entrepreneur, or adam smith. If you don't want to do the work, you could scratch some stuff off your wish-list and BarterGod will give you a shorter tasks list. If you don't do your task, some other member will be mad when they don't get their stuff, and you will be busted and you won't get any stuff either. Bartergod would figure out you owe the tribe some tasks, and would get on your case. Maybe there would be multidimensional tribes. Szabo's smart contracts. XML schemas. MapQuest. GPS/GIS. It's all coming together. This will happen any day now. This year maybe. bwaha ha! That's why we should all work hard to keep our income below $20,000 per year. It will be terrific evidence of fair market value. Nobody should be allowed to join BarterGod.com if their income in any of the past 3 years was above the poverty level. Governments will say "You valued your groceries income for 2002 at $3,000 but we know that groceries in the supermarket cost $52,000 for a family of ----4." Members will argue "Look, here's a list of every hour of every bum who worked on those damned groceries. Some of them didn't even show up. Besides, I never received all these groceries." Economists will argue, "Those supermarket groceries cost $52,000 because they came from a completely different system of production that's less efficient" And they would be right.

Think about direct action, instead. Money freed from space and time, 5000 years before the internet. And it also freed us from the tyranny of barter, i.e. - the limitation to a particular trading partner, - the limitation to trades of equivalent value, and - the necessity of deep analysis of comparative value, in every trade. But its curse is that it blocks information, first of all you cannot associate your own judgments of the value of this and that, as well as the market can. As a result, young people have the continual experience of losers. You're fifty years old before you understand the value of money itself. Evil issuers increase and decrease the value intentionally, within a game calculated to maximize their takings from money users. The curse of money is that it's *incapable* of conveying a history even between consenting parties who *want* the history available for analysis. Better money would allow the user to collect the details of all transactions, rather than coercing the discarding of the information content of the money. Settlement itself, is a relinquishing of claims by the payor, making the history of the money irrelevant for most purposes. But we have computers now :-) Doesn't that invite a re-examination of the idea of settlement? Settlement itself is an intentional blocking of information. (Product codes such as EAN UCC or other barcodes, similarly, destroy all of the supply chain contributions, stripping all producers of their reputations except the "Brand" seller at the top of the pyramid.) In a utopia, perhaps, nothing would ever settle. Obligations might be left to run in an open-ended way. Communities would observe balances of their members, and members would have the power to provide views of historical transactions to other members. The persistent nature of this information and the fact it was controlled by members rather than banks, would reduce the role of the state in financial matters. Again-- there has never been a computable infrastructure that could provide a history to money - -but it could be done fairly quickly, within an intentional community, using e-business standards like ebXML which focus on collaboration and trade. You can't cure the Money problem, by trying to fix the Money system. Todd AR/AP everywhere gldialtone.com ----- arapxml.net/arapCloud.htm ------

conspiracy and exception (english) Tired 7:16am Wed Jun 5 '02 comment#184419
The problem with the conspiracy theorists, strategically, is that they
presuppose an honest, proper, government. The conspiracy theorists have
nothing against the government as long as it does what it is supposed to
do, legally, properly. So, they thrive on events occuring of a "state of
exeption" where the government is doing things illegitimately. The fact
that needs to be addressed is not that the government did something wrong
in a particular case, but that it is fundamentally wrong, illegitimate,
in all its actions. ========= Who Is OnlineJournal.com?
(english) hmm... 7:23am Wed Jun 5 '02 comment#184421 Online Journal gave
Bev Conover a platform for her vague allegations. But who's behind this
website? OnlineJournal.com is an affiliate of the "Political Information
Alliance" (http://www.politicalinfoalliance.org/ Affiliates/affiliates.html).
Their mission statement states that "The Political Information Alliance
is merely an informal umbrella organization for liberal and progressive
Democrats." In the original, "liberal and progressive Democrats" is in
boldface. The domain for Online Journal is registered to the same person
as the domain for the Political Information Alliance. So, it's safe to
say that OnlineJournal is a Democratic publication. So is the above article
simply a way for members of the Democratic Party to place itself at the
forefront of "the left" by discrediting more-radical figures? Yes, The
Nation is merely liberal, not too different from, say, a liberal Democrat.
But Noam Chomsky and the people at the Progressive and Z Magazine are not
the types of people to settle for merely replacing Republicans with Democrats.
It sounds to me like some of the pro-conspiracy-theory complainers are
jockeying to push out people who want more than meager reforms. Follow
the money? Yeah, and while you're at it, follow the money of OnlineJournal.com
and the Political Information Alliance. ==

Online Journal is a Democrat Mouthpiece (english) 9-11 8:19am Wed Jun 5
'02 comment#184430 But the issue of 9-11 is a valid topic of inquiry. Many
people on the radical left have started to examine this issue of the American
Government's role in the 9-11 attacks--not just Democratic Party flunkies.
Granted, Online Journal is only interested in using this issue to attack
Bush--and support Democrats. What they ignore is the fact that the Clinton
Regime supported and sponorsed Islamicists connect to Al-Queda in the Balkans.
in order to attack Yugoslavia. This is an issue that Online Journal will
not touch, but Radicals will most definitely touch. See www.tenc.net or
www.globalresearch or www.wsws.org for excellent examples of this analysis.
Radicals are interested in exposing the increasing evidence of American
governement involvement in the 9-11 AND ANTHRAX attacks, not in order to
get rid of Bush, but in order to BRING DOWN THE GLOBAL AMERICAN EMPIRE
IN GENERAL. Moreover, radicals don't believe the American system can be
"fixed" by replacing the current American Regime with "better leaders"
but rather that the USA is fundamentally bankrupt in terms of its morality
and politics. The fact that America may have tacitly or directly sponsored
or supported the 9-11 attacks is further proof of this fact. www.tenc.net
Chomsky's work guides my suspicions (english) m. 11:57am Wed Jun 5 '02
comment#184465 What guides my suspicions that US elites had a hand in the
9/11 crimes against humanity? Well, for one, lots of Chomksy's work, which
points to the Nazi like elements that continue to run rampant in the American
power structure. This should be a wedge that divides the left. On the contrary,
it should be a bridge that encourages communication of people with different
ideological stripes. Revolution is as revolution does. I think that the
biggest mistake we can make as activists is to say that being left is a
prerequisite for forcing change. I don't care what your ideological stripes
are if you show up at the march, assert your rights, make sure people know
that the Oil Industry criminals are running this country. If Albert and
Corn deny a 9/11 "Conspiracy" that's fine. We can stil fight the same fight.
I for one believe strongly in getting the word out about 9/11 because I
think it DOES shed light on the institional workings of statism and capitalism.
If people find the case for conspiracy compelling, then they will hopefully
be inspired to learn more about the workings of the system on their own.
========== What Nonsense (english) Taj 1:04pm
Wed Jun 5 '02 comment#184481 It gets better: "'Why weren't the planes flown
out of New Jersey instead of the Cape?' Well, because the citizens of New
Jersey who live around the air force base, which is being dismantled little
by little, McGuire Air Force Base and several other air force bases which
have been being deconditioned and lowered in status for the last 30 years
because suburbs grew up around them, and they don't want jet fighters scrambling
from those bases all the time." This is an insult to ANYONE'S intelligence.
The obvious answer is that the Air Force was stood down just long enough
to let the highjacked planes get to where they were going. As the Yes Men
have proven, the so-called experts can spout any gibberish they like, and
the masses will soak it up. Fifty years of nazi-style conditioning will
do that. ========== So Many Idiots To Respond

" .. . how land related to the soul" Louise Erdrich
Bush, cynical realist that he is, has little faith in his country's saintly status and compensates with extorted, bribed and cajoled contracts, treaties, etc; International Courts like the one in The Hague are nightmares to fortify against; The Spectator (first of june this year) features an article by Paul Gottfried, a Penn prof, claiming that the Atlantean gap in mutual sympathy (for and from both sides) is widening and cites Goldberg (who I noticed got posted here regularly)saying "America really doesn't have a colonial past like Europe". Very true it's magnitude is very much greater, more vicious, etc. I will quote from Louise Erdrich's new book 'The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse' Chapter 5 Spirit Talk 1912, to illustrate the simplest components making the difference between trade(as which much of euro colonialism started) and staying 'for good':"The reservation at the time was a place still fluid of definition, appearing solid only on a map, taking in and cutting out whole farms sometimes on the say-so of the commisioner, or the former agent Tatro, and other times attempting to right itself according to law. It was a place of clan teasding, jealousy, comfort and love. As with most other reservations, the government policy of attempting to excite pride in private ownership by doling parcels of land to individual Ojibwe flopped miserably and provided a feast of acquisition for hopeful farmers and surrounding entrepreneurs. So the boundaries came and went, drawn to accomodate local ventures - sawmills, farms, feed stores, the traplines of various families. ---- Many did sell for one simple reason. Hunger. As the government scrambled for the correct legal definition of the land, any fluctuation meant loss, any loophole was to the advantage of the thieves, boosters, businessmen, swindlers, sneaks, Christians, cranks, lumber and farm dealers, con artists and reprobates of all types who had drifted to the edges of reservations hoping to profit from the confusion. Into this complex situation walked Father Damien, with only the vaguest notion of how the ownership of land related to the soul.
Gottfried calls Goldberg colleague VCHanson 'an even smarmier' (national review) hand. And I agree, since the latter hates critics of the US 'whose virtue was made manifest in the disinterested way in which a million American soldiers stopped the bloodletting in the first world war, although two decades later deviant states in Europe forced the US to enter .. ... ' , that last assertion could as easily be proven true as reversible and I lean to the latter (big loans on condition a substantial amount is to be earmarked as credit for arms is THE oldest trick in the book).
Chumskey in 'the year 501': Truman went much further, When Germany attacked Russia in 1940 he commented: "If we see Gemany winning we must help the Russians and vice versa (I shortened the literal inversion) to cause as many casualties as possible. -- DD, ch. 11. FDR, Zeman, Communist Europe, 172n.; Kimball, Juggler, 34. Truman, Garthoff, Détente, 6, citing NYT, June 24, 1941.
That quote pulled from a section in full here (Dutch):
185952 spiritoffreedom.org.uk defends prisoners and post pictures of 2 here --- I go: insidious deception - As much as I support your goals, your means suck and deserve an award for schizophrenia. Here you are defending somebody who commited arson in the name of climate stability (bitterest of all ironies) and emphasizing: "We have to use every tool in the toolbox.", though you wouldn't of course come out and expose your flawed ways and means harmony by mentioning setting fire would you?

|186438 Possible Point of Contention, Interest Free Islamic Banking (english) Mohamed Arrif 6:16am Sun Jun 16 '02 (Modified on 10:03am Sun Jun 16 '02) address: www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/ economics/islamic_banking article#186438 It seems there are many reasons the U.S. imperialists target muslims and Islamic nations, such as for control of oil reserves and the drug trade, but is the Islamic system of interest free banking another reason Bush and his cronies want to seemingly eradicate the Muslim culture? As Islam is fastly becoming the largest religion, this interest free system could be a threat to the huge Banking houses that have control over the current global economy. Read the two posted web articles and you decide. www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/economics/nbank/htm... ============ Sorry links are not working (english) author of above article 6:29am Sun Jun 16 '02 comment#186441 Try this, http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/ economics/islamic_banking http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/ economics/nbank1/html If these don't work either, I appologize. Go to your search engine and type in "principles of Islamic banking." Most likely you'll find the articles I posted. It is an interesting topic indeed. In solidarity, one more unsatisfied human Really ? Interest free banking WOW !!! (english) Converse Murdoch 7:36am Sun Jun 16 '02 firstname.lastname@example.org comment#186456 How do I get a credit card from one of these banks? =========== n (english) n 8:38am Sun Jun 16 '02 comment#186462 well it is interest free but not cost free. the philosophy is that under the interest system, the creditor/investor is supposed to be guaranteed a certain rate of return whether or not the investment they put money into works out or not, so if it doesnt work out the borrower is on the hook to make up the interest payments however s/he can, and this is not fair. so the muslim banking is more like working out partnerships or something, devising ways so that both the creditor and the borrower will particpate in the gains or losses of the transaction. so instead of getting a loan at interest for a house for example, where you "own" the house but you owe the bank a pile of money and if you dont pay they just take the house, a muslim bank might just buy the house itself and resell it to you at a markup, but let you buy it at the rate of like $400 a month until you pay off the sale price. so that way the buyer is not caught by fluctuating interest rates because the sale price has already been set, and the bank already has the house if you find you cant pay. ============ more info (english) Mahakaal 10:03am Sun Jun 16 '02 comment#186466 http://comp.uark.edu/ ~muslim/islam/economy.html http://ccdev.lets.net/materials/dinar.html http://www.islamic-economy.com/ An Ebook http://islamic-finance.net/ ebooks/dom-main.pdf http://www.riba-free-banking.com/ That should keep anyone interested for a while, if you would like more information, I can be reached at email@example.com Also there's a bill waiting to be introduced in the legislature called NESARA.

sorta my third loggin style permanent URL
through which I plan to circulate prfr candidatin' texts.
This batch is 105K . ..and quite so fresh anymore; I've started to skip carrying stuff through this url; today's (5-3.htm) must be the third time I pass up refreshing this file; perhaps cause the first item in it is so damn good!!!!!!!!!
Table of contents:
|They sorta look like this (all black letters, 8 point fonts). ----- Reading a printout instructions:(see the same text in bigger font via just mentioned links) ------ Continue reading all first (left) columns through first before returning to page 1 for the second half (of the first if double sided). ------ DSP = Double Sided Printing: Print preview to determine how many even pages there are in total (and to check for gap glitches, etc), then print half of them before returning these pages to the printer's paper trays again (caution about multiple ones and the orientations of the page) for the second half. ----||Wether you get your set of printed pages filled efficiently depends on the margins set in your printer; I aim for an even number anyways via printpreviews and subseguently: change (the preferred) Arial into Arial Narrow to shorten an uneven number enough to lose that 'property' and fit an even one. ---- Sometimes I use some filler text to make up a full number of even pages.) ------- One Then applies DSP (see left column) ---- Sometimes I cut a few spaces into a url to stay within frame/page width so look for them if a simple copy paste enter routine don't get you there yet.|
