...You know, where you nerd activists for the internet and admonishers of data privacy have been missing?
Not where it was about bringing innovation into the living rooms and free education, not where it was about keeping snooping eyes out of you living room.
It's even more simple.
Where was your word as the internet was turned into a commercial field and a place of the same life seriousness like the real life?
Once it was a harbor for people who felt misunderstood, who had specialized interests and who didn't find anyone to talk to in the same situation so easily right around the corner living next to them. It was a place where people could meet anonymously and not be ashamed about every shit they think and put interest in - or where they needed to calculate that next day some S.W.A.T. team is gonna kick their door in because some dubious fucker didn't like their opinion or decided to act the "concerned citizen"!
Also, there weren't whole industries of lawyers which just live from telling people they violate some big corporation's copyright or they talk the wrong way about movie/game X!
You know where you would have been needed?
Just as this kind of Pandora's box started to be opened! As this resort was turned into a place of jealousy, hate and aggressive agitation!
'Cause when Pandora's box gets opened, you can never close it again. That's exactly what things have become in the reality...
Now all outcasts, misunderstood people and nerds have lost their place to be almost completely. "Almost" because, if you're unlucky, even in the most hidden place in the internet anyone finds you, reads you and sees the need to stop you from what you're doing!
Even all your software to become anonymous again doesn't revoke that process 'cause the race has already begun for long to get a hold of this. Just before it really got started and became a common thing.
...Tell everyone what you think you can do to give this back to them, to the people who wish and who need it - for the sake of creativity or their own sanity.

Green activists of today - what do you still want protesting and invading coal-fired power stations or blocking convoys that transport nuclear waste from nuclear power stations to final disposal sites?
What is it that you see in this? Aren't there already environmental threads that deserve as much attention as these old dogmas of the Green movement?
At all, what about your own lifestyle? Do you spare to own computers, cars, live without electricity? Do you take care what your furniture is made of? How old it is? Do you live in one and the same flat for 20 years, no matter which way the tide comes?
Do you all produce your own clothes from your home-grown cotton plantation, so that people in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia or China aren't exploited?

Tell you what. If you're so obsessed with your ecologically okay energy production, how about not protesting in front of the fence of some headquarters of a big energy producer - and demanding from him to finally lie down cables to the several windmills build in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea? How about not making it a topic "we got alternatives, only this system doesn't like to change its structures"?
Or, how about not complaining about the behavior of this state that it protects one of their model car fabricants for building software into its cars, so the waste gas quotas are made suitable to the formal guideline?
How about not complaining being promised for 30 years that your car shall eat less and lesser gasoline, but in fact every newer car eats some more than the last?
Or, how about asking for what practice they imagine, when prohibiting all vehicles with conventional combustion engines, but technology is far from being able to offer you a car that can drive a thousand kilometers with one charge?
The only "truck" ever invented with success that can carry weights and cargo over long distances is an electric locomotive! But what is being invested, build and sold to private operators for trial? Streets and highways, no railroad tracks!
How are even your packages from an online retailer of your choice supposed to get to your home, when trucks are being prohibited? By drones?! By those energy eaters who can only carry one bundle at a time?!

What do you think all that comes from that enables you your comfy lifestyle?!
Does it come from swinging a wand in the air and speaking "Hocus pocus...!"?!
Does material get born from pure ideas?! Pure castles in the sky?!
If your forefathers had worked like that, they wouldn't even have been able to achieve sanitary facilities in every flat!
They'd still sit there in poverty, work to death, die from industrial dirt when they're 40 and see 3 of their 5 children dying in the meantime!
Oh, shit, I forgot... The first part already starts to become reality again, only in a bigger cage with more toys to distract and entertain oneself!

Go fry an egg - sort the hell of your own crap and protest again if you have found some good reason for it!
Go and read some books, instead of staying with old dusty dogmas or steadily trying to re-invent the wheel!
Listen to your parents and grandparents, how ecologically okay they could live even though dirty technology existed!
Learn from science that still is from times where ideas haven't been sold like bread - and figure out what things work like! You can even find answers in there for the problems of today!

Most of what you believe in to be the right path is a bunch of old dogmas and nonsense planted into your head by media and NGOs who are being paid for telling you what the world works like instead of making you think yourself!

...And by the way, rechargeable batteries of any kind, also the battery in your smart phone and in your electric car, all of them contain rare earth metals, dug out of the earth, making a few Chinese people die somewhere far away 'cause this shit is poison.
The good Lord didn't let them rain from the sky because you were such well-mannered children of the sun!
If someone ever told you this - he's liar.

Fear

"I'm not afraid...!"
"So then, what is it that you do the next time a guy with an assault rifle in his arms appears somewhere near you?! Staying there and trying to stop him?!
No, you run away like the last time and all other times before!
That's what is called FEAR!
So, don't try to tell me shit!"
matrixmann: (Thinking)
The Matrix is something that is real.
No, you're not stuck in a computer game wired onto you for your life, so you don't notice you're a battery for a machine.

All that you believe in, all that you think is right and wrong, all correlations that exist materially between one and another thing, that is The Matrix.
The way you got taught the path functions like, the way your mind thinks, based on these lessons and experiences, the way the world works like, and the way you believe - loosely based or even melt with these thoughts - the world functions like.
In other words: The imagination in your brain that you have about the world. That is The Matrix. The REAL one.
You don't even need a computer simulation for that as your brain is already capable enough of fooling itself and keeping itself in a dream world that is not as the reality is like.

Materially spoken, this equals as if you believe in gravity and that humans can't jump a 100 meters far, just like in the movie. Only with the difference: The reality surrounds you even though, dictates the base for the impressions your senses make. You can try if the belief in gravity is nonsense, but if it's there, it's gonna strike you dead even though. There is no computer simulation between you and the reality that feels real, but isn't.
The belief in nonsense is gonna bring up consequences for you right away. There's no second try or "Wanna continue?"-question. Dead is dead.

Speaking in terms of which the reality is full of virtual constructs that create a Matrix in your head that exists unconnected to the reality, that becomes a virtual dream world like in the movie,
it's, for example, if the doctor tells you that the pills help, but you feel more and more physically miserable. If you think, in plundering and destroying a supermarket you harm the big players in capitalism. If you assume that hard work alone makes you become someone someday.
Or, if you believe that buying things make you happy. If you think owning a house and a fat car, a spouse and children adding to that, are the universal recipe to make everyone happy. At all, if you think that it's perfectly normal that all people need to be married when they're 30, and so you need to be too. If you think every follower of a religion must wear the visible symbols of this religion just to be a member of this belief.

All of these things that you assume to be true without asking, create The Matrix for your head. The virtual reality you live in, the world which you think is true, but that is only like a full-scale computer simulation.

If you want to awake from it, want to know what is real now and what not, consider: There's no-one like Morpheus who can tell you that this overall thing you got running in your head is a lie. That there is some other reality and this is the one you can hold onto because it's real.
Even reality is only what people discover to be factually wrong, the way it was previously assumed.
There is a lot of factually-based recognitions that can help guiding you on your way, which you can trust because they've been proven to work this way, but it's not like all of reality has been cleared that way already.
In your search for a world whose concept is logic again, you've gotta walk many ways and open up your senses.
The famous question "Why do my eyes hurt?" - "Because you've never used them before." remains vital for all of your existence. And you can't always choose which one becomes the bitter truth for your life. If you got a deadly disease or cancer, you can't also choose to just have a stomach ulcer, can you?

The Matrix is... the cage you lock your own mind in. The prison you set for your own thoughts and feelings. The factual truth that you don't want to see - as well as the weird fantasy you declare for yourself to be true, even though it isn't.

The way out of this is... observing what happens to the left and to the right of yours. Going researching on your own. Wanting to know things exactly. Accepting at all, when something you got taught to be a certain way, is totally wrong factually.
When you don't want to stay with what you've been given as information from the world.
If you notice, things aren't correct that way you got told, and you don't decide for ignoring or blaming yourself for not understanding it or not being able to fit in.
matrixmann: (Thinking)
When an icon of one's suicidal youth commits suicide himself, then it's indeed an irony that life offers there.
But, thinking about it, what's it with a hero, where does this status end and where does he start to be only a human being again? With own problems, desires, flaws and personal weaknesses?
It's actually so very simple. So simple that one forgets about it when he looks up to someone.
Every hero that is like an icon to those with demons plaguing them inside, most often he fights some demons inside himself. Even when it's long past having your biggest battle with them, the fight goes on because, once developed, these demons never let you go again. Until the end of your life.
And so... it comes that even a hero might surrender them, although everyone of that kind of human logically knows it is nonsense to do so.
But sometimes you don't know how strong they are, how much a plague they are to the protagonist and how long he already kept fighting them - or how long he already kept running away from them.
It's tough to judge this from the outside - from the outside it's always a pretty easy job to do.
Much tougher it always is when judging it from the inside and taking note of one's abilities and capacities to overcome. How much he/she's caught up in the dependencies of his/her own life. And how much or less there's a way out of it what is plaguing someone.
In that point, even a hero is just a human...
And those things may press him to the wall until he's "about to break".

"Which one of your oaths is the one more important to you?"
"Of course that oath to protect civil life from harm!"
"Then why don't you rebel against your superior when he just orders you to harm the people you swore to protect?!"

People miss guts in this time episode. All feel as courageous to want to join the table, join the discussion and contribute their ideas, but when it comes down to standing out, standing by one's own ideas, risking a head for it and speaking up, defending it, then most of them play the cowards and hide behind the bush. Have a birthday party to organize. A tree to plant. A household shopping to do. Hold back. Try to satisfy the zeitgeist's picture of a good public image. And, above all, try to not to be a leader. Try not to be someone who inspires others, but just who staccatoes down its arguments like a record stuck on replay and who could be stolen from a factory which produces these guys from a mass mold.

A reminder in times where mass media declare recently deceased former chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Helmut Kohl "a person loving and always having fought for freedom":

In 1985, by the first government under chancellor Kohl, the change of the general law concerning the freedom of assembly had been applied that imposes a ban on wearing face coverings ("Vermummungsverbot") for most public events and a ban of protective gear such as armor of all kinds on these events.
Ever since then, the only right to assemble you have is to come around in your casual suit and to be recognizable for every policeman on this event at any given time.

...der frühere Amtssitz des Bundespräsidenten, die Villa Hammerschmidt in Bonn, Relikt aus den Zeiten, als es noch zwei deutsche Staaten gab, ist bis heute verbindlicher Zweitsitz des Bundespräsidenten?

...that the former official office of the Federal President of Germany, mansion Hammerschmidt in Bonn, remnant of those times where two German states existed, still is in use until today as mandatory second residence for said Federal President of Germany?

"The land of the free never really cared about freedom. Not its politicians, not its oligarchs, not the people that really decide over the course of the country. It worked together with Nazis barely that they've fled from Europe just to bring down the Soviet Union because they were its political enemies. The United States - a Jew-friendly place? Open your eyes, by the time the Germans killed them by the masses in their concentration camps, nobody liked them anywhere either. Henry Ford was an anti-Semite, Disney was an anti-Semite - nobody thought about correcting their views or putting them to jail for it. Ford even had good trade relations with the Third Reich as long as it was possible. IBM delivered punch card machines for the bureaucratic administration of the concentration camps. If the United States really would have been so much against it, they had ordered those key technologies to be stopped to be delivered to the Nazis before they made the declaration of war. It would have just been a blow to them. Key technologies are always subject to the final OK of the state. If it doesn't happen, the administration doesn't want it. And the trail keeps continuing until the present. Fascists and butchers? As long as they're political enemies of an enemy of the states, they don't see reason why not making them their tool for a power change or to simply destroy the most promising competitor beside them.
One can't even tell how long in time this behavior goes back. It's been so much inherent to its system, it's like it goes back to the very early days - since the US was able to move on the international political parquet."

A thing that West German leftists don't get about real socialist way of economy is: They didn't invent it anew how structures to produce look like, or did an economy like a hippie community. They only took the old structures known from capitalism and erased the circumstance of having a feudal lord as an owner.
No private person alone or a group was the owner of a facility, the manager administered the factory according to a non-material idea that was "acting for the good of all other employees that work here". If he didn't do that and abused his position, he could be replaced by will of the other workers employed at this entity.
Everyone had his firm position, knew what set of tasks he had to do every day.
If you wanted to take a different position than your current one, you just moved up the ladder through the coventional way. Education or changing the branch, for example.
It wasn't like "today I do one thing" and "tomorrow the other", something unsteady - something that no-one can calculate with, much less raising a family.
Or something that requires all part-takers to be a firm believer of a certain thing to let this thing last.

If developing the idea of mixed school year tuition in school even only on a federal level because there are not enough students to fill the year classes, does that mean you're a rich country?
matrixmann: (Yuber Suikoden I)
The country all look up to: Health insurance and still you've got to pay yourself for your doctors, DocMobil to travel the rural lands like Doctors Without Borders in crisis areas, millions dependent on food stamps, family structures like in third world countries - get many kids to rise the probability that one will be able to care for you when you grow old or sick; don't break with wealthy relatives of yours as they can offer you financial help or a roof above your head -, and working your ass off 'til old age 'til you die 'cause pension doesn't exist, no matter the state of your health.
This is the country that people worldwide crave to live in, citing its huge freedoms and doing whatever you want what you can't do in your home country. This is the country that people brag they can find their fortune in and unbelievable riches, like it's still the 18th or 19th century.

Sagt, hat Tatort jemals in seiner Geschichte irgendein Thema vorgelegt, dass nicht auf der tagespolitischen Agenda stand, aber unbedingt auf den Tisch gebracht werden musste?
War Tatort jemals etwas anderes als das filmische Sprachrohr der Meinung der Regierung, nach Außen hin verkauft als Abendunterhaltung zur besten Sendezeit - genauso steril gehalten von unliebsamem wie man auch versucht, Debatten steril zu halten?

Große Ohren kommen,
wenn man meint, dass du das Falsche denkst,
wenn du die falschen Leute kennst,
wenn du dich in den falschen Kreisen herumtreibst,
und Briefe an die falschen Personen schreibst,
wenn man meint, du hast etwas zu verstecken,
eventuell sogar kräftig Dreck am Stecken,
wenn du die falsche Einstellung hegst,
und du die falschen Gewohnheiten pflegst,
die falschen Bücher liest
und die falschen Filme siehst -

Man sagt dann,
du hast dich der falschen Gruppe angeschlossen,
den falschen Lebenslauf beschlossen,
du bist ein Feind unserer Demokratie,
leidest an Megalomanie,
du musst weg, auf der Stelle!
ab in eine dunkle Zelle,
Wir helfen dir wieder ganz zu sein!
zurück zum schönen Schein,
mit Tabletten und leeren Worten
aus allerhand von Sorten -

Was, du willst nicht?!
Ach, wie kann das sein!
Bist du ein dummes Schwein!
Du willst unsere Liebe nicht,
siehst die Dinge nicht aus unserer Sicht
Raus mit dir, verpiss dich!
Mach doch rüber, da versteht man dich!
Ach nein, das geht ja nicht mehr,
und überhaupt, wollen wir deinen Verstand so sehr,
es gibt nur den einen Weg
und zwar den, auf dem wir alle steh'n!

Große Ohren werden kommen
und sie werden dich mitreißen wie eine Welle...
Tritt auf der Stelle,
oder versteh', was um dich geschieht,
wenn sich eine Welt die Wahrheit zurechtbiegt,
wirst du es kaum erkennen,
nichts bewegt sich durch herumflennen
und nichts bewegt sich, wenn du nur herumschreist,
die einen gehen anderen gern auf den Geist,
die anderen lernen bevor sie tun,
und erfahren, es braucht etwas mehr bevor sie ruhen.

What most people that advertise religious tolerance tend to forget: All organized religions that existed and still exist in the world history of human civilization have a political arm, a political division that works towards realizing the political goals of this religion, and making the rules and commandments of this religion secular law that is subject to the judgment of everyone's everyday life before court.

In Lower Saxony, a chief physician in gynecology is able to openly state "I don't do abortions anymore" and reason his decision with his Christian belief, and the chief of the clinic is able to express his support for the doctor, stating "There is no law in Germany that can force a doctor to do an abortion. Unless her life is in danger and there is a medical indication to do it.".

Repeat: In 21st century Germany, a gynecologist is able to state "I don't do abortions anymore" - and gets away with it! Where is the big #aufschrei here? Where are the women rights activists here to scream and shout about it?!
I don't even hear a fucking court or a stupid talkshow screaming "Now that doesn't suit out values and definitions of freedom..." and speak about unlawfulness!
Where are you fucking human rights activists here?! Where are you social justice warriors here to cry about it!! I know, you get paid to shut the fuck up about it when religion is involved in such shitty decisions because religion has become so superimportant in this century!

Thank you, people! Thank you for importing this American shit and let religion rule once again over peoples' lives after they have made it to wrest it from state and church to get everyone the same treatment regardless of who they pray to!

If you let one have his way, all the others crawl from under the rock again too!

Don't you fucking dare to complain about the image of a family that the far right comes up with anymore again... You're fucking far right too if you let such things happen!

Die Tomatenpreise schießen diesen Winter wirklich durch die Decke. Bei den großen sehr, bei den kleinen nicht ganz so immens, aber auch spürbar.
Es ist jetzt schon die dritte Woche (wenn nicht sogar mehr), in der man, außerhalb von Angeboten, nicht unter 2,50 € das Kilo fündig wird - selbst bei den billigsten Discountern. Wenn es in Richtung 2,50 geht, dann stehen die Aktien gut! Es geht noch böser, im Bereich von 3-4 Euro pro Kilo.
Von einer miserablen Ernte in Nordafrika oder Spanien war nichts zu hören, also gehe man erst mal nicht davon aus, dass es daran liegt.
Aber, es sind jede Menge Leute gen Europa aufgebrochen, die alles haben stehen und liegen lassen.
Ist es Verschwörungstheorie oder Fake News, wenn man sich dazwischen einen Zusammenhang denkt?

Schon vor mehr als 5 Jahren, als das mit Horst Schlämmer war und dem dazugehören Film, deutete sich das unweigerlich schon an, dass ein Teil der wahlmündigen Bevölkerung die Schnauze voll von der großen Politik hat, weil sie nicht im Interesse der Bürger agiert, und bereit dazu wäre, jegliche Form von "Alternative" zu wählen, die nur anders wäre als die Etablierten. Damals war diese Sache noch ein Spaß, heute ist sie mit der AfD harte Realität. - Und damals wie heute wurde nichts dazugelernt.

Wisst ihr, warum der gesamte Westen nicht sagen kann "Kriminelle Asylanten lassen wir nicht rein in unser Land!" ( = Leute, die Asyl beantragen, die einem anderen Land bereits eine Straftat begangen haben)?
Weil sie dann ihre ganzen politisch liebsamen Flüchtlinge, die in ihrer Hemisphäre zu "Freiheitskämpfern" erhoben werden, während sie in ihrer Heimat als Kriminelle gesucht werden oder bereits verurteilt wurden, nicht mehr legal ins Land lassen könnten!
Diese würde die gleiche Regelung ebenfalls ereilen!
Genauso, wenn man plötzlich einen Teil der Bevölkerung eines anderen Landes zu seiner eigenen erklärt, ihnen die eigene Staatsbürgerschaft verleiht, um sie dem anderen Land als Bevölkerung zu entreißen!



You know why the whole West can't state "We don't let any criminal asylum seekers into our country!" ( = people who sign an application for asylum that have committed or been sentenced for crimes in their home countries)?
Because then they couldn't let those political refugees of the pleasantly kind legally in anymore which they call "freedom fighters" in their hemisphere while those are wanted in their home countries or have already been convicted!
Rulings like that would apply to these too!
The same when they suddenly declare a part of another country's populace to be populace of their own and give them their own citizenship to take them away out of the sphere of influence of that other country!
