This is Thailand (and it's time to GROW UP)

A country warped by blind 'love' for one, and blind hate for another.

Missed Opportunities

Published in Burmese and English in Thailand in 1993, hopefully this document has finally been translated to Thai.
(direct link to pdf)

Kudos to Gene Sharp and The Albert Einstein Institution.

UPDATE: Reader John Francis Lee has pointed out that The Albert Einstein Institution has a Thai page with 2 publications currently available in thai language.

Google/Blogger - it gives me the shits!

.
The following comment was posted by John Francis Lee, but I have not been able to get it to appear as a comment in this thread, so here it is:

Trust a publicly owned corporation? Surely you're joking.

If we are going to rely on Google ngrams, or anything else 'it' puts forth, we need to investigate the sources of 'its' data and the type of massage it's been given.

Google projects the image of a peer-reviewed, academic-style operation as regards its visible product. That's Stanford's speciality. So their ngram data probably holds up, with the appropriate qualifications... although I have not investigated it in depth. Not in shallow, even.

It's the invisible data collection and massage... behind the scenes... that is the problem.

Henry Miller used to refer to AT&T for which he worked in New York as the Cosmodemonic Telegraph Company.

The Cosmodemonic Googleplex

Fittingly, there is a hapless soul pounding away about Henry Miller and the Cosmodemonic Telegraph Company right here, at the Cosmodemonic Googleplex...

http://cosmotc.blogspot.com/

... at blogspot.com, which uses the Googleplex's, black-box, proprietary software webserver, which now serves about a fifth to a quarter of all the pages on the internet, the same opaque software that is watching me type this posting, and which 'inexplicably' disallows some posts... right here at The Cosmodemonic Googleplex.

Just some music I like

Never heard of these guys until a few months ago:




Nitzer Ebb - Warsaw Ghetto

Well who's missing the years
They're crying catastrophe
Escaping of freedom
Freedom from before
To turn myth into power
The limit to murder
On with the black wolf
On with the black wolf
Struggling for murder
Murder from voice such
Revenge and freedom
Living a heartbreak
Crying for silence
That voice of destruction
Comfort develops
Comfort develops
You knew all along
And you knew all along
You knew all along
You knew all along
You knew all along
Prejudice the nation
Your two faces turn
Stop, stop the blood
Stop, stop the bloodstain
No sin against blood
No sin against blood
No sin against blood
No sin against blood
Just the ritual murder
Rehearse in destruction
Push the silent friends
These brutal friendships last
They rule and rule
And they last and last
They rule and rule
And they last and last
You gave us no time
Gave us no time
Gave us no time
Gave us no time
But we can fake real hate
Fake, fake real hate
Fake, fake real hate
Fake, fake real hate
Tracking the wolf
Track, tracking the tyranny
Track, tracking the wolf
Track, tracking the tyranny
Track, tracking wolf
Track tyranny
Track, tracking wolf
Track tyranny
Track, tracking wolf
Track tyranny
Won't reach the final state
No final state
No final state
You won't reach the final state
No final state
And they'll be missing the years
Miss, missing the years
Miss, missing the years
Miss, missing the missing years
Miss, missing years
Miss, missing years
Track, tracking wolf
Miss, missing years
Track, tracking wolf
Miss, missing years
Crying catastrophe
Crying catastrophe
Crying catastrophe
Catastrophe
Catastrophe
Catastrophe
Track, tracking wolf
Miss, missing years
Catastrophe
Track, tracking wolf
Track tyranny
Miss, missing years
Miss, missing years
Catastrophe
Track, tracking wolf
Crying catastrophe
Just the ritual murder
Crying catastrophe
Crying catastrophe
Miss, missing the years
Miss, missing the years
Miss, missing the missing years
Miss, missing years
Miss, missing years
Track, tracking wolf
Miss, missing years
Track, tracking wolf
Miss, missing years
Crying catastrophe
Crying catastrophe
Crying catastrophe
Catastrophe
Catastrophe
Catastrophe
Track, tracking wolf
Miss, missing years
Catastrophe
Track, tracking wolf
Track tyranny
You'll miss, missing years



Thanks James and Black Dog & Regis
