The Look Of Silence and The Act Of Killing DVD (Josh Oppenheimer):

I first went to Indonesia in 2001 to help oil palm plantation workers make a film documenting and dramatizing their struggle to organize a union, in the aftermath of the US-supported Suharto dictatorship – under which unions were illegal. In the remote plantation villages of North Sumatra, one could hardly perceive that military rule had officially ended three years earlier.

Murder in the Name of God-the plot to kill Yitzhak Rabin (Michael Karpin & Ina Friedman):

“candidly speaking, we are not interested in peace, as this concept is understood by the general public. As the ultimate of right-wing messianists, we look forward to the Redemption, to [ruling over the] true Whole Land of Israel, from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates … [and] this integrity will undoubtedly be attained through conquest and wars.” – Noam Livnat Continue reading Murder in the Name of God-the plot to kill Yitzhak Rabin (Michael Karpin & Ina Friedman):

New Dark Age-technology and the end of the future (James Bridle):

ho ho & ha ha. We insist on dystopia. Decline, deterioration, invalidation & expanding disability. Less capable, able, cognizant human beings, but faster & more powerful machines with a continually pervading reliance & prevalence that becomes despotic, as abstaining or avoiding technological/computerized participation becomes practically impossible.

Saudi America-the truth about fracking and how it’s changing the world (Bethany McLean):

“The real catalyst for the shale revolution was… the 2008 financial crisis and the era of unpredictably low interest rates it ushered in.”

“if companies were forced to live within the cash flow they produce, U.S. oil would have grown at a quarter to half the rate that it has.”

“You can make the argument that the federal reserve is entirely responsible for the fracking boom.” Continue reading Saudi America-the truth about fracking and how it’s changing the world (Bethany McLean):

Night March-among India’s revolutionary guerrillas (Alpa Shah):

Not since 2011’s landmark Broken Republic publication by author & activist Arundhati Roy have we had such an acute insight into India’s Naxalite guerrillas, brought to us now from anthropologist Alpa Shah. This is the world’s longest running ‘armed revolutionary movement’, having over half a century of activity/resistance (I think becoming operational officially in 1967). Continue reading Night March-among India’s revolutionary guerrillas (Alpa Shah):

lured, cured & no longer endured (tha sheer plumpness).
