The first Hawaiian president of the United States

Filed under: Politics — legomenon @ 10:02 am

A person is either born in Hawaii or not born in Hawaii. Except for extremely pathological borderline cases, you can’t be born just a little bit in Hawaii. But you can be a little bit “black” and a little bit “white” if you have mixed descent. Barack Hussein Obama II has such mixed descent: black father, white mother. So why is he always labeled “black” and never “white”? And if his heritage is so important, why is his hawaiian background so seldom mentioned in the media?

It’s not too late for a boycott

Filed under: Politics — legomenon @ 10:03 pm

This upcoming friday, the 2008 Summer Olympics will be officially opened. This will be a huge propaganda victory for the chinese government. Not for the legal democratically elected chinese government in Taiwan of course, but for the bandits in Beijing who control mainland China, Tibet, and parts of Ladakh.

Proponents of the Beijing Olympics assured the world seven years ago that the human rights situation was improving in China, and that everything would be all right by 2008. Awarding the games to the communist regime was even supposed to “help” this to happen. This was an irresponsible lie even back in 2001, propagated by people who should have known better. Of course the communists will always continue to disrespect human rights, simply because at the very moment that they are removed from power via a democratic election, they will be held responsible for their past actions. And when you know you are a bandit, this is the last thing you want to happen.

But the rest of the world can still make a difference. Athletes: don’t go to Beijing. Make a stand, even if it’s the only time you ever make a political stand in your entire life. People everywhere: make a note of the companies that are official sponsors, and stop buying their products. Sell any shares that you own in these companies. You can always buy them back later at a lower price 🙂

And don’t forget to tell everyone why you are doing this.

And a personal note to Mr. Dalai Lama the 14th: I very much appreciate and agree with your total commitment to a non-violence policy. But you are doing a disservice to your people by not demanding full sovereignty for your country. And please do whatever you can to stop all this superstitious reincarnation bullshit. This is truly opium for the people, and an obstacle for anyone interested in spiritual liberation.

Anton Nilson – a swedish terrorist

Filed under: Politics — legomenon @ 5:12 pm

Today, or rather tonight, marks the 100-year anniversary of one of the most famous terrorist attacks in Sweden, the bombing of the ship Amalthea, which resulted in the murder of Walter Close, and the maiming and wounding of several other civilians. The person responsible for this horrible act of violence was Anton Nilson, but the blame also falls on his fellow collaborators Algot Rosberg and Alfred Stern. All three were communists, and this case is of course just one more example among many that shows how communism always perverts the last vestiges of morality within the ranks of its believers.

The perpetrator Anton Nilson emigrated to the Soviet Union after he was released from prison, and spent a decade participating in Lenin’s Red Terror against liberals, social democrats, anarchists, and anyone else who didn’t submit to Lenin’s totalitarian rule.

All this happened a 100 years ago, but some people still refuse to learn the lesson that communism is pure evil. Two influential swedish social democrats Olof Palme and Ingvar Carlsson, both who served as prime ministers of Sweden, actually celebrated the terrorist Anton Nilson on various occasions. Maybe they didn’t know who Anton Nilson was, and the crimes he committed. Or maybe they did? Either way it’s very very scary to know that such blood-thirsty people have actually led governments in my country.

FRA-lagen

Filed under: Svensk Politik — legomenon @ 8:23 pm

Nu har det gĂ„tt tvĂ„ veckor sedan “Lex Orwell” klubbades igenom i den svenska riksdagen. Trots en massiv kritik frĂ„n mĂ„nga svenska medborgare som Ă€r vĂ€l införstĂ„dda med hur Internet fungerar, vad syftet med den svenska grundlagen Ă€r, och som kan kĂ€nna igen en lobbyistisk “Spin Doctor” pĂ„ 1000 kilometers avstĂ„nd, sĂ„ Ă€r argumenten hos FRA-lagens föresprĂ„kare fortfarande begrĂ€nsade till: (1) BuĂ€hÀÀhÀÀÀ!!!! Mina vĂ€ljare förstĂ„r mig inte! (2) Yttre hot… i framtiden kanske… men tĂ€nk pĂ„ vĂ„ra svenska barnsoldater som krigar i Afghanistan! samt (3) Andra vĂ€rldskriget minsann!.

Sedan har det dykt upp ett antal Äterkommande begrepp i debatten som jag tror det Àr nyttigt att skÀrskÄda:

  • “Teknikneutral” betyder att man istĂ€llet för att bara spana pĂ„ radiosignaler som avsĂ€ndaren har sĂ€nt ut för spridning överallt i etern, vill kunna spana pĂ„ alla meddelanden som skickas överhuvudtaget, oavsett teknik. Det tycker jag Ă€r helt OK sĂ„ lĂ€nge samma grundförutsĂ€ttningar gĂ€ller som tidigare: FRA bör fĂ„ spana pĂ„ allt som sĂ€nds via kabel och som sprids överallt, d.v.s. all annonserad multicast (RFC1112 m.fl.), allt som skrivs pĂ„ publika websajter, och Ă€ven allt som Ă€r allmĂ€nt Ă„tkomligt via FTP och Bittorrent naturligtvis. För detta krĂ€vs ingen massiv avlyssningsapparatur. Det rĂ€cker med en vanlig internetanslutning. Med FRA:s budget sĂ„ skulle dom kunna köpa sig en miljon vanliga internetanslutningar. Om jag var FRA-chef sĂ„ Ă€r det precis vad jag skulle göra.
  • “Kontrollstation” betyder i praktiken att regeringen och FRA sjĂ€lva ska utvĂ€rdera i efterhand huruvida regeringen och FRA har missbrukat sina befogenheter. HallĂ„?
  • “Integritet” betyder pĂ„ FRA-lobbyisternas nysprĂ„k att FRA först öppnar ditt brev, tar en kopia pĂ„ det, granskar kopian maskinellt, sparar information om innehĂ„ll och metadata, och till sist “förstör” den sparade informationen efter att ha lĂ€st och tolkat den och konstaterat att den för nĂ€rvarande inte Ă€r intressant för FRA:s kunder.

Jag kanske ska pÄpeka att jag inte Àr principiellt mot avlyssning av kabeltrafik. Det finns situationer dÀr detta Àr befogat och önskvÀrt. Men det Àr en stor skillnad mot FRA-lagens massavlyssning av alla. Och det kom som en kalldusch för mig att hela den borgerliga alliansen (med undantag för riksdagsledamot Camilla Lindberg) accepterade massavlyssningen. Jag har röstat anti-socialistiskt i alla val jag har deltagit i, men frÄn och med FRA-lagen kan jag inte lÀngre rösta pÄ nÄgot av allianspartierna. Att rösta för ett visst parti innebÀr att man som individ legitimerar dess politik, och dÀrför Àr det helt uteslutet för mig att nÄgonsin mer rösta för nÄgot av de partier som klubbade igenom denna lag.
