NEVER THE TWAIN….

I was sent an email recently, from a friend in Stockholm, Sweden, expressing concern about a note that had been sent to all parents of the school their children attended. This note was not officially sanctioned by the school, nor the education authority, so cannot be viewed as being official policy, but is concerning nonetheless, as it addresses something that has become a serious issue in a number of European countries. A school in a small town in Germany, however, […]

DEFENDING AN INIQUITY….

It has now been left up to the people who have seen through the spin, the cover-ups, the endless lies and the great injustice that has been visited on Gonçalo Amaral, in his selfless pursuit of the truth of what really happened to Madeline McCann. Please donate what you can to help right this wrong, and show your support (even anonymously) to a good man who has lost everything in his fight for justice. LINK

WHATEVER YOU DESIRE….

There is a school of thought, that believes that human beings are essentially a sheep-like species, who will copy, and therefore follow one another – without really thinking. Is there any truth in this? How often do you see the term ‘sheeple’ being used on the Internet for instance? A term incidentally, almost always used by people who only differ from the targets of their derision, by their adherence to what appears to be a different ‘group’ or ‘herd’ of […]

JE NE SUIS PAS CHARLIE….

  By Henry Samuel, Paris Jan 27th 2009 Maurice Sinet, 80, who works under the pen name Sine, faces charges of “inciting racial hatred” for a column he wrote last July in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. The piece sparked a summer slanging match among the Parisian intelligentsia and ended in his dismissal from the magazine. “L’affaire Sine” followed the engagement of Mr Sarkozy, 22, to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of an electronic goods chain. Commenting on an unfounded […]

A DIFFERENT ROAD….

For some months now, I have been meaning to put together some information for publishing in an article on the Outlaw, in regard to a subject, which in all honesty, I do not fully understand myself. Yet. I have found it to be a difficult and somewhat daunting prospect, and even after experiencing fifty-one years of life on this planet, I am not even sure where to begin. Put together with the fact that almost everything written here is immediately […]

AND SHE LAUGHED NO MORE….

As a Welshman who sees himself as a patriot, and somebody who is fearlessly proud of his heritage, I would consider myself a traitor to not only my ancestors, but to everything I hold dear – if I did not voice my opinion on something that fills me with not only a great sense of disappointment, but intense anger. A senior Welsh politician, namely Dafydd Iwan, a former Plaid Cymru president, has called for the song ‘Delilah’ to be banned […]

ALL THAT GOOGLES….

As the best-known and most widely used powerhouse of online search engines, there is a fair chance that most people use Google on a daily basis. However, it seems that very few people actually know how to use it properly in order to unlock it’s full potential. I rarely use it on my own machine, as I find it far too restrictive for certain types of research and specialised searching, but in Libraries and where other public access machines are available, […]

PERPETUAL WAR….

By John Avery We know that war is madness, but it persists. We know that it threatens the survival of our species, but it persists, entrenched in the attitudes of historians, newspaper editors and television producers, entrenched in the methods by which politicians finance their campaigns, and entrenched in the financial power of arms manufacturers – entrenched also in the ponderous and costly hardware of war, the fleets of warships, bombers, tanks, nuclear missiles and so on. In his farewell […]
