The No BS version of the update on MH17, let's be serious here!
Dr. Paul Craig Robert's remains my favorite journalist when it comes to penetrating the veneer of the globalisation machine, comming from the inside on the Reagan administration as the deputy secretary of the treasury and from the PR machine that supports it as associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, he takes the angles that best frame the context needed to understand any piece he chooses to write about. His valuable and still quite new website can be found here.
His article on the update on the downing of flight MH17 can be read on the Global Research website here.
Everything you know is wrong. There is a very good reason why science succeeds more often than politics does. Unlike politics, It's not a consensus or a vote, it's actually method. The scientific method. Anyone who has read this blog before probably knows I'm a lifelong science junkie as well as someone who spends thousands of hours breaking down the the political and economic agendas behind the special interest groups that guide public policy. In many ways I'm actually uniquely qualified to tie these angles together in ways not well understood by the overwhelming majority of people. That actually includes scientists. Scientists are notoriously naive in the political and economic forces that drive the human world.
First and foremost, what is this so called 'consensus' anyway. You will be horrified to find out, it's not specifically that global warming is man made. It's simply that humans contribute to climate change in an unknowable way and to…
Whatever your persuasion is on CO² and AGW, nobody disagrees on the tremendous benefit it provides plant life. Many of the past famine disasters and desertification has CO² decline listed as a contributor.
I feel I've already blown the notion that humans are the main cause of climate change out of the water. Or rather I've used the reasoning of others and put it together in a convenient outline. See my previous post above for starters. However, I recognize that humans do increase CO² levels, no matter how tiny. Increases are likely to be very short lived because the earth has an effective feedback mechanism, but we can apparently get small increases, and it's been put forward on very poor science that this is a bad thing. That assertion hinges completely on bad models. More on that in the bottom most link. Model's and the measurement sample dates are dubious at best.
Many different empires, cultures and nations have existed in history and while the details, styles, values and aesthetics keep changing, the core structure remains unchanged. In order to benefit from social coperation and steal reward in excess of the labour and value you invest, you cannot take it by brute force for extended periods of time without facing the wrath of the crowds. The crowds need to give it to you willingly or unknowingly. There was one exception to this synopsis, the Feudal System but there is more to that than people realise, it's a post for a later day and deserves full scrutiny and parrellels do manifest. The support of the home crowd is also needed to win wars. No army has ever been effective fighting under duress, they would assemble, arm and immediatly turn on you.
Before the current reigning Judeo-Christian Anglo American Empire of today there were other more monolithic empires that the loosely ideologically aligned old money banking dynasties, globalis…
