USSR: There Was No Attempt at Socialism or Equality

Standard

Marx was very clear that socialism requires worker ownership over the means of production via democracy.  Workers did not own or control the means of production in the USSR.  There was no democracy in the USSR.  Therefore, the USSR was not socialist.

It was also definitely not communist either.  Communism is classless, stateless, democratic and worker-controlled.  The Fujian tulou of China are an example of true communism: True Anarcho-Communism

Proper Terminology: Inverse-Socialism and Inverse-Democracy

I Am Definitely NOT Charlie.

Standard

I despise the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists. They are juvenile imperialists pretending to be brave dissidents. The reality is that slave-makers are only concerned with freedom of expression for racist and imperialistic views. The same people have absolutely no problem restricting free speech for true dissident views.

The ‘Je Suis Charlie’ movement was driven by phoney-liberalism (Athenian-style slave-making.) The same phoney-liberals who get outraged over the thought of not being able to spread xenophobic and imperialistic propaganda have no problem suppressing true free speech for true dissident, anti-imperialist views. This is why phoney-liberals like Trudeau are willing to support bills like Bill C-51—because people like Trudeau are only concerned with free speech for slave-makers like themselves.

I support free speech and I think Charlie Hebdo has the right to free speech. However, I think more responsible members of the community should utilize their right to free speech to criticize Hebdo and remind people to use free speech responsibly.

Again, a major problem is that slave-makers always have unrestricted free speech to prattle off boorish and xenophobic drivel, but bills like Bill C-51 allow slave-makers to punish those who express dissenting views by labeling dissidents as terrorist sympathizers and accusing true dissidents of jeopardizing national security.

Paris Attacks Summary

Standard

ISIS never claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.

ISIS released a statement praising the attackers:

IS CLAIMS PARIS ATTACKS, WARNS OPERATION IS “FIRST OF THE STORM”

The statement details nothing that was not publicly available information from news reports:

“Terror groups, when they claim credit for attacks, will sometimes include details of the planning or execution that establish the group was indeed responsible. There are none here; the statement details nothing that was not publicly available information from news reports. It also includes no biographical information on the attackers, even a name or photo, though terror groups will often lionize its attackers as “martyrs” in such statements.”

(via Here is ISIS’s statement claiming responsibility for the Paris attacks)

Eight suspects identified were EU citizens. A Syrian passport was found near a ninth suspect, but its legitimacy has come under question by everybody including French and German authorities.

“A third red flag is the fact that the passport concerned was found in the first place. Analysts find it strange that a bomber would remember to bring his passport on a mission, particularly one who does not intend to return alive.”

(via Why Syrian refugee passport found at Paris attack scene must be treated with caution)

Additionally, there is the fact that the passport remained intact while the suicide bomber did not. French and German authorities say ISIS may have planted the passport to turn public opinion against refugees:

France Will Still Welcome Syrian Refugees

Since ISIS was likely not involved, since French authorities have no problem blaming people for crimes they did not commit, and since sinister people always accuse others of crimes they did themselves, it’s likely a case that more sinister French authorities planted that passport.

Despite accusing ISIS of killing 130 French citizens, France chooses to retaliate by bombing abandoned empty locations:

“all these strikes are targeting abandoned empty locations.”

Further Evidence That ISIS Was Not Behind the Paris Attacks

Standard

Here is another article that says ISIS claimed responsibility, but then gives very specific information that ISIS likely was not responsible:

“Terror groups, when they claim credit for attacks, will sometimes include details of the planning or execution that establish the group was indeed responsible. There are none here; the statement details nothing that was not publicly available information from news reports. It also includes no biographical information on the attackers, even a name or photo, though terror groups will often lionize its attackers as “martyrs” in such statements.”

(via http://www.vox.com/2015/11/14/9734794/isis-claim-paris-statement)

The following statement implies ISIS did not claim responsibility by implying they might still claim it later:

“None of this is to argue that ISIS is thus not responsible; it is entirely possible the group may later release more information to establish its role.”

ISIS Didn’t Do It.

Standard

People have to be very careful when reading these articles. The headline and first paragraph say ISIS claimed responsibility:

http://www.nytimes.com/…/isis-claims-responsibility-for-par…

However, they specifically imply throughout the article that ISIS did not claim responsibility. (The New York Times and many papers did this with Hamas during the 2014 Gaza massacre. The headlines would say Hamas claimed responsibility while the rest of the article implies that they didn’t.)

ISIS celebrated the attacks. They never said they did it. Here is a translation of one of the messages from the groups encrypted messaging accounts:

https://ent.siteintelgroup.com/…/is-claims-paris-attacks-wa…

In fact, throughout The New York Times article, there is continued debate between whether to blame ISIS or Al Queda. (Obviously, if ISIS had actually claimed responsibility, they wouldn’t be debating between blaming ISIS or Al Queda throughout the article.)  The reality is that it might not have been either group but they need to pin it on either ISIS or Al Queda so they can declare war. If it was just homegrown terrorism exploiting Islam, they would not be able to go to war, so they pretend it’s not even a possibility.

Additionally, if ISIS was going to claim responsibility and declare open war on France, an encrypted internal communique isn’t going to achieve that.

(Another scenario is that ISIS was trying to do it in secret, didn’t want France to know, and the internal communique accidentally exposed that they were responsible. However, the encrypted message only showed that ISIS knew of the attacks and praised the attackers. They never said they did it.)

The best evidence they have linking ISIS to the crime is the encrypted internal communique which actually implies ISIS didn’t do it.

ISIS say they were impressed with the way the Paris terrorists executed the attack and applauded them on a job well done, but imply that the Paris terrorists were people they didn’t actually know.

Additionally, if ISIS had orchestrated a terrorist attack they considered impressive and successful, why wouldn’t they be patting themselves on the back for a job well done? Why wouldn’t they be cockier and more full of hubris?

If ISIS had done it, they would have been more arrogant and self-congratulatory rather than merely applauding the work of others.

Thus, I highly doubt it was ISIS.
