When You Kill Ten Million Africans You Aren’t Called ‘Hitler’

Take a look at this picture. Do you know who it is?

Most people haven’t heard of him.

But you should have. When you see his face or hear his name you should get as sick in your stomach as when you read about Mussolini or Hitler or see one of their pictures. You see, he killed over 10 million people in the Congo.

His name is King Leopold II of Belgium.

He “owned” the Congo during his reign as the constitutional monarch of Belgium. After several failed colonial attempts in Asia and Africa, he settled on the Congo. He “bought” it and enslaved its people, turning the entire country into his own personal slave plantation. He disguised his business transactions as “philanthropic” and “scientific” efforts under the banner of the International African Society. He used their enslaved labor to extract Congolese…

Politiet opptrådte som stat i staten

I boka En folkefiende forteller jeg en historie fra virkeligheten som kunne ha vært tatt ut av en spionroman. Det er en grell historie om de hemmelige tjenestene i Norge, og den reiser svært alvorlige prinsippspørsmål. Jeg siterer fra boka:

I 1975 fikk AKP besøk av en nederlender som kalte seg Chris Petersen og sa at han representerte det lille hollandske ml-partiet MLPN. Han hadde møter med Tron Øgrim og én til fra internasjonalt utvalg. Vi var generelt svært skeptiske til nederlandske ml-ere. De gjorde ikke noe godt inntrykk, og denne Petersen var ikke noe unntak. Han prata en masse og skrøt av kontaktene sine i Kina og Albania, men Nederland hadde han lite peiling på. Vi så på MLPN som et typisk postboksparti, det vil si et parti som hadde en postboks til å motta utenlandske aviser, og som knapt hadde noen forankring i sitt eget land. Trons konklusjon…

Administrerende direktør i Byggenæringens landsforbund (BNL), Jon Sandnes, sier til Aftenposten at han “frykter mafiatilstander i byggebransjen”. De siste fem årene har en vekst på 10 milliarder kroner i oppussingsmarkedet gått til aktører som ikke følger reglene. Det er trolig at en omsetning på flere titalls milliarder går til mer eller mindre kriminelle aktører.

Sosial dumping, svart lønn

“Skattekrimenheten har siden 2009 avslørt 46 kriminelle nettverk, som skjuler svart omsetning via fiktive fakturaer. Av 886 millioner kroner i unndratt omsetning, var 495 millioner svart lønn,” sier leder for skattekrimenheten i Skatt øst, Jan-Egil Kristiansen.

Dette dreier seg om nettverk som driver mange former for kriminalitet fra svart arbeid og skattesvindel til menneskehandel og narkotikasmugling.

I Sverige regner man med at skattetapet for svart arbeid utgjør 5% av bruttonasjonalproduktet. Hvis tilstandene er omtrent de samme i Norge, betyr det et årlig skattetap på 70 milliarder kroner.

“American colonialist imperialism by it’s application of politics that are genocidal and destructive to the personality of the Puerto Rican people to this day, has managed to create a Puerto Rican with a profound dose of repressed violence whose explosion if released would be completely uncontrollable.” – Comandante Filiberto

Today is the 115th anniversary of the insurrection by Puerto Rican revolutionaries against Spanish colonial rule known as El Grito de Lares. On September 23rd of 1868, in the mountain town of Lares Puerto Rico in the center of the island nation a few hundred men and women staged a rebellion to declare Puerto Rico a sovereign nation in the eyes of the world. It was an audacious, risky and daring move on the part of these few brave revolutionaries but isn’t it always that way?

The rebellion was initially planned for September…

Drug warriors have long tried to smear marijuana as a dangerous scourge, seeking to criminalize possession of a leaf they clearly do not understand. The key to comprehending its effects is by better grasping our physiology.

Marijuana is not magic. Marijuana (botanical name, cannabis) affects the human body because the plant-based cannabinoids in marijuana, once ingested, can “plug into” the cannabinoid receptors that are used by the cannabinoids made by our own bodies.

It’s not just people that have cannabinoid systems. All mammals have them. All creatures do, except bugs. Although cannabinoid systems can utilize the plant-based cannabinoids in marijuana, the cultivation and preservation of cannabinoid systems by the evolutionary process has nothing to do with pot. The cannabinoid receptor appeared on the…
