Censorship in Australian universities

Australian censorshipCensorship is the antithesis of truth-seeking and sabotages rational risk management that is crucial for societal safety – but how can society addresses this major problem if censorship prevents it from perceiving the problem in the first place? Indeed censorship is a huge but largely ignored problem in the Western democracies that have become Murdochracies, Lobbyocracies and Corporatocracies in which the One Percenters rule because Big Money buys politicians, parties, policies, public perception of reality and votes.

Miko Peled- The General’s Son

Miko Peled- The General’s SonJourney of an Israeli in Palestine
Just World Books 2012, 223 pp., 20 US-Dollars. (ISBN 978-1-935982-15-9) 

In 1997, a tragedy struck the family of Israeli-American Miko Peled. His 13-year-old niece Smadar was killed by suicide bombers in Jerusalem. Born into a prominent Zionist military family, his father was a prominent general, who turned after the Israel’s “war of aggression” in 1967, into an advocate of peace with the Palestinians, the real owners of the land of Palestine. The tragic death of his niece served as an “eye-opener”. His personal journey from a Zionist by education, family and societal socialization into an outspoken critic of Israel’s colonial and aggressive policy is convincingly documented in his extraordinary book: “The General’s Son”.

That and 'deviating from the curriculum.' It's like they were implying I was a deviant. And according to their norms, I am."

Amnesty International: Imperialis​t Tool

Amnesty InternationalDear Amnesty Friends:

You will note that they never denied any of the basic facts set forth in my original message. When Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982 and murdered 20,000 Arabs/Muslims with the full support of the United States, both Amnesty International and AIUSA said absolutely nothing at all despite vigorous efforts by AIUSA Members to get them both to say and to do anything.
