There's not much of a difference between the Beijing and Atlanta versions. That's a scary equation for a "Free Press".
Technical thought is (carefully) controlled by society, whereas politics is simply a part of the propaganda system.

We are beyond fascism
Many Americans, of Christian ancestry, were taught their (supposedly their) Judeo-Christian "God" (Anglo-Saxon term for Yahweh) knows all because he sees all. Yet if we put these powers into political terms and context—then these capacities are not much different from the current National Security Administration's "Operation Prism" that has vast potential to know all about Americans and apparently the entire world of personal communications, as recently revealed by Glen Greenwald's stories in British daily The Guardian. Thus we learn our Leviathan State can know everything and anything about anyone. By analyzing religion through a lens of political philosophy we can see the psychology of Judeo-Christian Yahweh's exclusivity to power, as in "he" (anthropomorphized) holds all the cards, is thus the exemplar religious model for a political state of Monarchy (and privileges to a more or less self-select court elite).
Formal language vs. language built around separate sets of contexts and interpretations etc
Can the formal language of math be related to the existence which we perceive?
Answer: Basically, no.
The model of civilization provided by the Roman-Empire is the same model of civilization used today.

Our survival depends on either Ballots or Bullets.........
The perimeter security deal is being sold as vital to improving the flow of trade and travel across the border. In order to appease U.S. fears, Canada has made numerous concessions with no guarantees that it will lessen border restrictions. As part of a North American security perimeter, Canada will always be at the mercy of any new U.S. security measures, regardless of the dangers they may pose to privacy and civil liberties.
(or scientific revolutions can exist only after social revolutions, so as to make it clear how the propaganda system is manipulated, and even the experts are duped by this manipulation)
Godel's incompleteness theorem is about the limitations in regard to the practical usefulness of precise (measurable) language, and it requires that the development of precise, practically useful descriptive knowledge exist in an equal society, wherein equal free-inquiry exists. This is the idea of equality which is the fundamental teaching of all religions, ie equality related to both the development of knowledge and the relation of knowledge to practical creativity, and to new contexts for practical creativity.
Bow down before the one you serve, you're going to get what you deserve.
Each fresh outrage by the Obama administration is met by a shrug of the shoulders or outright support by Democrats. With no clear ideas to fall back on, they meekly bleat "me, too" when the world's industrialists and financiers pronounce their verdict on what is to be done.
U.S. Senator Wyden's proposal to increase logging on 2.6 million acres of BLM/O & C lands to appease Oregon's big timber elite will only cause the degradaton and destruction of native forests up to the boundaries of the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, Copper Salmon Wilderness and the Tillamook State Forest.

The choice society makes is between
protecting everyone's individual freedom in order to learn and create, that is, equality in regard to both knowledge and creativity, (ie the declared point of the US revolutionary war, declared in the Declaration of Independence, wherein equality was declared to be the basis for US law)
protecting a few who administrate a narrow, collective, and traditional viewpoint of (or identified in the propaganda system as being) dogmatic-authority, violence, and expansion (ie the banker-Roman-Empire-(or Marx's)-viewpoint)

gauging by the wrong measure
The fate of Syria and the broader Middle East balances on a razor's edge. The western media is giving dire warnings of an impending sectarian war between Sunni and Shia Muslims, a war that could drown the Middle East in a flood of blood.
Tonight, I will ride around town naked with thousands of other people. While it is a lot of fun and it may be just another way to 'keep Portland weird,' for some folks, it means more to me. It means casting off shame and loving myself, flaws and all. This is why I ride.
Post liberation society has exposed the info-serfs to gross info-inequity with the info-lords. They can listen to all of our phone calls. Nearly every picture, mp3 audio, video recording, etc. contains hidden "steganographic" data about where it was taken (via GPS), the device's media access codes (telling where it was bought, often with credit card info, etc.). Just by posting a photo with hidden personal info on the Internet can let "certain people" know everything about you! The info-lords know everything, while their activities are totally hidden from the info-serfs by security clearance secrecy.
Civilization is mostly opposed to thought, and it mostly expresses a will to have ever more people survive.
The choice about "the role of the person in society," which civilization seems to collectively make, seems to be about:
Equality vs. inequality
[Where western civilization has selected inequality and its attendant violence]
Science is politics
A main point of the US society is that, (though) science and math, whose "real relation to things, is most concerned about practical creativity," but its language and focus is controlled by the owners of society.
what is written here, it is really in a very simple language, and it is done in a very educational style.
"Free trade" agreements don't have anything to do with trade; they have everything to do with tightening the grip of corporate dominance over every aspect of life. It is precisely to minimize potential pressures from social movements that the TPP is being negotiated in complete secrecy, with no text publicly available.
If labeling is what you want, why not do it yourself? Here's one example: As of 2011, the U.S. corn crop was about 88% GMO. Printed index cards mentioning this fact can be distributed within the corn sections of grocery stores like Walmart, Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, etc. This action informs people where they shop!
Duhhh- Didn't these guys attack us on 911?
"Labor troubles" have been used to defang dissent on people's radio before...look for the phrase "sell the station."
Still believe the Boston Fairytale?
If given the attention it deserves, an important new book is certain to make significant contributions to the public discussions of US prison policy. The author, Shawn Griffith, was released last year from Florida's prison system at the age of 41, after spending most of his life, almost 24 years, behind bars, including seven in solitary confinement. Facing the US Prison Problem 2.3 Million Strong: An Ex-Con's View of the Mistakes and the Solution was self-published just months after Griffith was released from what is the third largest state prison system in the US, after California and Texas.
Through a storm of innuendo and outright lies, community radio/media survives, like a shrew among dinosaurs
See my two part report on evidence that the USA has fallen into a police state as spearheaded by USA intel services and the thugs & operatives in fbi/cia/police community.
Regardless of what the actual total of livestock contribution to global warming, it is part of the problem and we ignore it at our collective peril.
Last night's Station Manager show admitted: Bullard Law is still "on"
Both the radial equation, and other orbital-spectral shapes, of stable physical-systems are related to properties of angular momentum whose assumed spherical symmetry is disrupted by the shape of the metric-space within which the equations for the physical system's material components, and/or the system's angular momentum, are defined. That is, these physical systems also happen to be metric-spaces, which have shapes, and which are, themselves, contained in higher-dimensional hyperbolic metric-spaces.
The ideas expressed in this paper are ideas about existence in regard to human creativity ie they go to the heart of describing the creative relation that (human) life has to existence.
They are ideas which both take from the culture (they use authoritative ideas) but (and) they are expressed in the simplest of concepts, which are derived from the idea about reliable measuring and stable patterns and the relation of reliable measuring to quantitative sets
Why they are not considered by society is explained, basically because society is a narrowly defined empire ruled by a few.
In a surprise turn, area man finds Portland Indymedia interesting again.
Canceling the world's debts would be a welcome reform, but in itself wouldn't challenge the world capitalist system without a debt jubilee being one piece of a more comprehensive struggle.
The Station Manager was originally designated "the Ringleader" in this July 2012 plan. Few could know it meant a reversion to corporate-style, top-down management
Knowledge of both the relation of mankind to state and the relation of math to practical creativity are fundamental to an: equal, free, creative society.

It's expensive, but Bullard Law can come through to deny democracy in the workplace--using donor-generated funds
Saturday May 4, KBOO held a public meeting at TaborSpace. The transcript has been made available at www.kboo.fm.
Here are a few former long-time staff and board members, and program hosts summing up the situation at KBOO very succinctly.
Review of a review of a book, "Meaning in Mathematics" which is a book of essays about the philosophy of math, edited by J Polkinghorne, a physicist-theologian, and reviewed by M Heller a philosophy professor (and also a theologian), where this book review appeared in AMS Notices, May 2013
There are excuses for bombing Syria. Who is listening?
Austerity programs are designed with ideology in mind, not with economics based on the real world.
President Barack Obama has made a clear and convincing case for closing Guantanamo! Mostly the same reasons finally articulate were just as true when he initially took office. Closing the stigma of war, crime and national shame has always been a high agenda item for many Americans. It is now the watermark battle ground that could begin to show who or what really runs this country. But think of the mindless excuses from war hawks (including complicity by the mainstream media) to try to stop any transparency about Guantanamo prisoners. But there is simply no way President Obama can close this base on his own without major and active U.S. citizen and world support. How can Congress possibly stand in the way of the reasons President Obama announced for closing the Bush Legacy? Where is the Free Speech movement, where are the campus protests at Madison and Kent State Ohio?
A model of particles is useful to nuclear reaction models, but not useful in regard to either describing material interactions or, subsequently, in regard to describing the stable properties of material systems, eg the spectra of general nuclei. The media and high-positioned administrators are able to destroy knowledge, and this is done for corporate interests, while the professional experts actually do the damage, since they were guided by the propaganda-education system into participating in a process of narrowing the reach of knowledge.
The Station Navigator has had her say, falsely claiming immediate fiscal crisis, alleging acquiescence to labor. People left, thinking the Station would be okay. Now we had better move fast...
Different year, same story, same villains, same internal corruption
The capitalist parties of the "Left" are trapped by their fervent wishes to stabilize an unstable capitalist system — the solution to the structural crisis of capitalism is not to be found on a ballot.
See evidence of a planned, coordinated and unlawful effort by the law enforcement community, spearheaded by fbi's own assassins, to find a way to arrest me.
Editors (and/or journalists) are the gate-keepers of society's truth, the expression of ideas in the media, where that truth is determined by the beliefs and interests of the editors' paymaster, whereas the editors and journalists defer their gate-keeping judgments concerning "what society is supposed to identify as the truth" to the expert authorities, ie those high-paid wage-slaves who express the authoritative dogmas upon which the production of the ruling class's investment-structures depend, ie these are the allowed absolute truths in regard to how society is organized in relation to knowledge and creativity so as to serve the interests of the investor-class.
