The most interesting thing is his new girlfriend Jemima Khan (nee Goldsmith), Jemima's father was Sir James Michael Goldsmith a billionaire financier. Jemima has two brothers; Zac Goldsmith Tory MP who is married to Alice Rothschild, and another brother called Ben Goldsmith, who up until last year was married to Kate Rothschild.

All seems a bit fishy but maybe im being mislead.

I can't create a new thread otherwise I would, been a long time lurker here only observing. I have this for you all:- org.salsalabs.com... This is of concern to everything, consider the implication. Nations would be strangled through trade, we have to stop this now as it's another step towards the orwellian society non of us want.

It's quite disturbing that some commentators on here think that individual governing would mean that everyone would be selfish. Would you stop being charitable without a government? Do you need to be told be to be compassionate? You don't need a politician, preacher or a celebrity to tell you how to live or think, do it yourself. That's personal responsibility.

It seems to me that people are being pushed by the media towards some idea of mass revolution, then what? Give up all your freedom to a system that will take more from you because you worked hard, to subsidize lazy people who won't get off their ass? No thanks.

The only revolution needed is a personal one.

Aphorism
reply to post by daaskapital
 


A man worth millions, donning an expensive coat and thumbing his way through a device sure to have been built by the tiny hands of cheap labour, while claiming to be against economic inequality is quite a humorous sight.

He should have left the mask on; instead he seeks a photo op.

What better way to needle the objects of his displeasure, than by employing their profitable technology to reach millions of other displeased people around the world, to wake up, unite. and revolt.

It's like using a bully's own boots to kick him in the arse with.

Thank you for the story which should bring people to earth with a bump and put their lives into perspective.
If I am honest I posted for the man, not the story, but I am glad I did now.

I expect you can multiply that story by X fold, in different parts of the world, violated by different corporations who think they have a given right to impose their will on the local population, whether by force or by the means put forward by John Perkins in his book Confessions of an Economic Hitman.

Your man Bill Oddie is sincere, he avoids publicity often, and is passionate about nature especially birds. He is still a comedian though first and foremost. Like David Bellamy, suddenly their faces and or values did not fit or they would not conform with the BBC, so they were shunned.
Better off out of it I say.

Thanks again.

Believe me this bloke raises more questions than answers in regards to his qualifications and who is behind him, and what the agenda is that he is pushing....that aside, the one problem I see with the context of this witty poster, is this paradigm that human beings are labels....what truly free human being wants to be a label? For instance, 'musician' politician,police officer, court clerk, christian, muslim et etc'- Don't get me started about 'isms', all NWO sematical mind control Me? I am a human, altho a jack of many trades and philosophies- and not a believer in gov't or any brain washing institution- im sure I too have opinions that are simultaneous worthy of praise and scrutiny.

This is the drug addict guy? The one who sees females as things for his pleasure? Who speaks like he went to Smackhead Caveman Special Academy...

No respect from me that's for sure.


Everyone makes mistakes - everyone has opinions that eventually evolve to more philosophically correct ones in time. To judge someone in his [30s?] on the way he sees life is a little pretentious; and I'm willing to look past a history of [some stuff] to see that he is participating in a global effort to correct our way of living.

Have you never done any 'drugs'? Better yet - Have you ever marched on a riot squad with a million other like-minded folks?

I don't see a reason to bring up someones shortcomings when they are clearly making an effort to improve YOUR way of living. Did you chastise Obama for smokin' the tweeds before [you(likely not)] voted him into office? Because he did smoke the tweeds. And inhaled; if I remember properly.

Point being... Don't knock someone for doing something admirable; even if he has a spotted past.

Following on from some earlier comments, I also started an apprenticeship in 1998 with a small software company. Within a year I landed a job building websites for a new media agency, and things seemed to be going well.

But around the year 1999 the New Labour government decided to open the borders to mass immigration, and also actively encouraged the offshoring of jobs from the IT industry.

The impact of these decisions has been devastating for younger people working in IT, and I daresay other industries have been equally globalised.

Most IT departments in the UK now have a sizeable contingent of Indians, or even just Indians and no other nationalities, and increasingly I am interviewed by Indians for jobs in the UK.

I don't think it's good enough to say to the younger ones: in my day there were thousands of people applying for t' one job, so clean off yer nose, get on yer bike and sort yerselves out.

It simply isn't true. Back in the 90's there were plenty of starter jobs, and it was much easier to get going in life. Now, because of globalisation, there are hardly any opportunities for people starting out.

Globalisation has been devastating for the young and the poor and the working classes. Those who advocate globalisation, and the corporatist agenda driving it, should really be ashamed of themselves.

Are you the NSA mole on ATS? Because if you're not - this comment just clued the actual NSA mole into how to 'resolve' their new problem - if it's not already on their agenda.

Why does it matter who is doing the gentle shoving as long as the ppl are stirring?

I note, huge snobbery on ATS. Nobody should have to have credentials to have an opinion. You are not defined by your current actions it seems but by your past hurdles. TUT

A whole lot of people stirred from Obama's pushing. Don't quite like the end result there. Same with Hitler. I think it matter quite a lot who is doing the pushing, and why they are doing it

Wouldnt class Hitler as the gentle shove type. You can not use that as point of ref in way of defense. The topic I was specifically commenting on is the constant offense that many ppl on here have regarding R B having an opinion. Also that people may indeed follow his message or in fact who is he to have any credence well my point being this: He has as much right & authority to speak out as anybody. His beliefs are his own and not especially correct in all manner but he has the platform so why not move a few ppl into waking up, researching and coming to their own conclusion? That is all good in MY book and lets face it, in MY book is the only one I'm reading right now.

Why wear a mask when it is the same as your face...?


An effective double bluff...obviously.

If you wore a mask that looked a lot like you, the authorities are less likely to be looking for a face that looks a lot like the mask covering it.





If he didn't wear a mask and then subsequently remove it in front of cameras he wouldn't get any publicity.

Which is the point of doing the march.

For Russell Brand.


It's simple. He did the march to support anonymous, anonymous weaar masks. He also wanted to put his face to it. Personally I think he's great, I'm not well off but don't begrudge someone who is who speaks for the poor and does something. Loving everything new I hear from him.

Before you can become a monster in power, you must gain tremendous popular support with the citizens, or the military. Have the backing of either, you have a potential coupe in the making. To be a monster in power, you have to hide that monster until you got the power.

Do I think this guy is the next Hitler, eh probably not. But no one thought Hitler was gonna be a monster either in the beginning. Most who voted for Obama thought he was gonna pull the country into a 180 from Bush too, instead he turned out to be the same as Bush, except way better at reading speeches.
