U.S. Government Playing Yahweh With Gulag Gitmo:
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).

Canada Being Assimilated Into a U.S. Dominated North American Security Perimeter
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.

Scientific revolutions: can lead to social revolutions
(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.

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)
vs.
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)

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.

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.

Angular momentum
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.

Banking empires vs. useful knowledge
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
And
Why they are not considered by society is explained, basically because society is a narrowly defined empire ruled by a few.

Closing Guantanamo—Why it’s Symbolically, Spiritually and Materially Important
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?

particles
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.

Proof of an idea (science or mis-representations)
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.
