McAllister How do people from different walks of life, diverse experiences, and varied points of view live together peacefully within a civil society? What is the main ingredient necessary for democracy to thrive? It can be boiled down to one word: trust.

ORWELL’S DYSTOPIAN CCTV SURVEILLANCE STATE COMES TO LIFE IN CHINA – WHO’S NEXT?

by Vic Bishop, Staff Writer Waking Times We are fast approaching the technological and political realization of George Orwell’s dystopian promise for humanity. In the classic work 1984, Orwell describes a tightly controlled future where technocratic elites have stamped out individualism with total information awareness and total surveillance from the home, to the office, to the street. “There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time.

Net Neutrality Is Dead. Here’s What The Experts Are Saying.

image edited by Fernando Kaskais by Aylin Woodward on December 14, 2017 No More Equal Rights For Data In a 3-to-2 decision on December 14, 2017,  the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal the rules that regulate how internet service providers (ISPs) connect us to the world wide web.

New intolerant narrative of the deranged Left: All MEN are dangerous, simply for being men

 by: JD Heyes (Natural News) In the modern age, the Alt-Left has decided that men should no longer be men but rather neutered, cowering wimps who are too weak to stand up for themselves or to the stronger women who should be running things anyway (or so we’re told). That helps explain much of the anger over Hillary Clinton’s monumental loss to Donald J. Trump in the Nov. 2016 election, especially among the feminist crowd, most of whom were certain they would be celebrating the country’s first female president ever (as if gender should even be a qualifier for the most powerful position … Continue reading New intolerant narrative of the deranged Left: All MEN are dangerous, simply for being men

VA hospitals now hiring FELONS as doctors
