• Quote of the week

    “In his final pamphlet of this series, No Treason No. 6, "The Constitution of No Authority," Spooner broke new ground by demolishing the theory of tacit consent. Spooner argued that merely living in a certain geographic area under control of a government, or voting in government elections, in no way implied one's consent to the government of that territory. Elections mean nothing; for Spooner showed that a majority of people never vote, and of those who do, the number supporting the elected candidates is so small (as a percentage of the population) as to be ludicrous. "Elections are secret; therefore, you cannot call representatives legal agents, since they do not know specifically whom they do represent." Therefore, having voted in an election in no formal way demonstrates that one consented to anything. "On the question of the Constitution itself, no vote ever had been taken, and as a legal contract the Constitution has no validity."
    -- No Treason, Lysander Spooner

Normalising nuclear – beware of this public opinion campaign – theme for October 2018 « nuclear-news

“We need to explain and to start [nuclear] education at all levels, from kindergarten, school and university, to parliament and ministers. ”  said Mikhail Chudakov , deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA  “our efforts can shift the paradigm from gaining public acceptance of nuclear power to generating well-informed public demand for nuclear power. We must reinforce the benefits of nuclear power……..it will require enhaned international cooperation.”

A global campaign aims at normalizing nuclear– getting people’s global acceptance that exposure to increased ionizing radiation is OK, that nuclear is essential to save the climate

It beggars belief that the world can ignore Fukushima, Chernobyl, and other nuclear disasters and the growing toll of radiation-caused cancers and birth defects.  And can ignore the link with nuclear weapons and the radioactive wastes piling up. And can ignore the astronomic nuclear costs, and the economic success of renewable energy and energy.

But that is exactly what the nuclear lobby intends.  Starting with our little children at kindergarten, and moving up through the age groups, the nuclear industry will be handing out huge sums of money to the charlatans of propaganda, to spread their lying message.

We know the lies –   the major one for the public is the pretense that nuclear power combats climate change (when in reality, the entire nuclear fuel chain emits huge amounts of carbon.)

We need to think clearly – to not be impressed by the prestigious journals, the lofty scientific academics, the bought politicians, who have found it more comfortable to go along with nuclear lobby spin, than to really think about nuclear issues.

When you find the pro nuclear message in your schools, local councils, universities, libraries, hospitals – with cheerful, colourful, attractive stories –   ask yourself “Who paid for this?  Who gave my university the money for all this?

And don’t be too quick to rubbish us – the unpaid anti-nuclear bloggers and activists.  We are going to need all clear thinking people who are not dependent on corporate funding –  to also co-operate in a global campaign  – to get the truth out about the toxic nuclear industry.

  • Famous Quotes In History

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
