MS vs Google on the gold rush to China: treason??

Both Google and MS had changed its services and applications to meet Chinese regulamentation: no forbidden searchs, no forbidden words. They are full supporters of an undemocratic and predatoty communist government. Are they traitors?
They fit exactly what is called "metacapitalists": tired of the un-balance from the free market, they need a totalitarian big government to keep their market-share intact, away from the rules of the same market that created their profit and wealth.

They are supporters of a new kind of communism. A capitalist-like communism where the west give money while east give bombs & terrorism back.

African economist says: "For God's Sake, Please Stop the Aid!" (SPIEGEL ONLINE - News)

While the rich think they are helping the poor, they are making the problem bigger and bigger.
Why is so difficult to understand that the #1 problem in Africa is CORRUPTION and COMUNISM?
While exists guerrillas and un-democratic leadership in the area there will be no chance for finishing the poverty.
Why don´t people focus on the real problem instead of wasting so much time and resources in these kind of rock´n´roll geriartric hall of fame?
Do they forgot the infamous "OIL for FOOD" SCANDAL?

Hey, Bono, take off the sunglasses and see the real world for a change...

Brazilian Censorship on Free Press - Olavo de Carvalho

This was taken in Google News.
Indymedia Colombia and Argentina showed the same note:

"Brazilian Censorship on Free Press - Olavo de Carvalho"

It´s weird that Indymedia in Brazil labelled him as "fascist"..

Sometimes only from a secure distance you can frame the picture at large.

Olavo X "O Globo" : repercussions II

This article from Richard Roberts at Jeffrey Nyquist site cites Olavo exiting from O Globo, literally, : "This story from Richard Roberts fits in with the news that Olavo de Carvalho, the Brazilian conservative philosopher and columnist, was fired from his position at O Globo. 'With my dismissal, Brazilian big media becomes at last the conservative-free ambience it aimed to be,' Olavo explained. The revolutionary left marches on."

Olavo X "O Globo" : repercussions I

I've just received this message from Jeffrey Nyquist and I am sharing with you.

If it is possible, please tell Olavo that all those who write about the hidden hand of revolutionary socialism are in trouble. The world has descended into a kind of psychosis. It affects the so-called American conservatives as well as the liberals. The deceptive propaganda and manueverings of an ambitious totalitarian spirit now takes center stage. It advances without being discovered, as everyone is now accustomed to accepting a carefully constructed set of lies. One set of lies has been fashioned for the Right. Another set of lies has been fashioned for the left. Everyone who matters is deceived. All who are not deceived are swept aside. There is nothing left to do but wait and watch as the forces of destruction prepare the final operation. The reduction of the United States as a leading military and economic power is the main objective, leaving all other objectives open to coercion and manipulation. The world must be turned against America, and this is happening before our very eyes." - Jeffrey Nyquist

A message from Philosopher Olavo de Carvalho

I just have received this message from Olavo. He is explaining the reasons why he got fired from "O Globo". He allowed me to share with you, because it is a relevant fact to know what is goinfg on in Brazil right now.

"Bad news from Brazil. The Brazilian newspaper O Globo fired me last Monday. This is not just a personal bad luck, but a political fact.
For years I had been denouncing by my weekly column the activities of the São Paulo Forum, while the remaining pages of the newspaper (and of every other Brazilian newspaper) kept complete silence on the subject or denied overtly the existence of the Forum or at least its political importance, so that many readers were induced to see me as a kind of lunatic conspiracy theorist.
Denial became increasingly difficult during the last weeks, inasmuch as the 12th Assembly of the Forum was realized in São Paulo from 1st to 4th July. While it was reunited in Bogota or Havana, it was easy to hide it from Brazilian eyes, but São Paulo is the largest Brazilian city. Moreover, one of the main topics of the discussions was the urgent need for the Latin-American left to support Lula and the Workers Party (PT) against the rising tide of criminal charges, including not only the endemic corruption inside government but even murder accusations (Celso Daniel, the socialist-PT mayor of the industrial town of Santo Andre, was murdered some years ago and his brother told Daniel was killed by people from his own party whose involvement in corruption he was investigating; later, SIX witnesses of the trial were also murdered by unknowns shooters).
Well, last week a member of O Globo board of directors, wrote himself an anticle where for the first time after fifteen years of silence O Globo admitted frankly the existence and the political relevance of the São Paulo Forum. Four days later I was fired.
According to deputy Roberto Jefferson (the main witness in present investigations about PT corruption), Mr. Jose Dirceu, the former number one man in Lula government and now a very important leader in the House of Representatives, boasted often of having complete hold over O Globo board of directors, owing to the huge debt the company had to state banks.
So my dismissal was not impossible to foresee. I just fancied it would take still some months to come, but the growing tide of attacks against Lula's reputation and the starting of the electoral campaing probably accelerated it.
Hundreds of protestation letters against my dismissal are been sending to O Globo (I have copies of many of them), but none of them was or will be published. Here is the evidence of the deliberated occultation of the facts.
With muy dismissal, Brazilian big media becomes at last the conservative-free ambience it aimed to be"

Erasing Evidences on "Foro de Sao Paulo" : Olavo de Carvalho is out from the "Globo" Newspaper

It was predictable: Now that the "Foro de São Paulo " (an organization joining left parties+ revolutionaries in LA) is totally printable for the masses (obviously in a different and faked way from the original "leit motif"), sold as a debate club with some more or less "rebellious" participants, all those clues that lead to the real Foro de Sao Paulo has to be erased. Olavo de Carvalho is the biggest clue of all.
During the last 15 years he was the only (and the lonely) journalist that wrote on the subject, explaining what exactly meant to have a offical party as Worker´s Party in Brazil associated with Colombian Revolutionary Army (FARC) and other revolutionary forces within Foro de Sao Paulo. It meant that Worker´s Party, despite its claims on contrary, always APPROVED the way FARC fought (and still fight) against "capitalism", either kidnapping strangers either bombing innocent farmers. But don´t put all the blame on PT (as portuguese people call it "Partido dos Trabalhadores") : all the main left parties in Brazil were participants in Foro de Sao Paulo. That´s why elections in Brazil are a faked play. If all parties are under the control from de "Foro" (created by Brazil´s President Lula da Silva and Fidel Castro), it means there is no opposition at all.
What happened in "Globo" is that "Foro de Sao Paulo" is not a forbidden subject anymore. But in its democratic façade. If you are trying to disinform people you must clean all truthfull sources. During 15 years Olavo de Carvalho claims about "Foro" were listen as a conspiracy theory from a radical man.
But now "Foro" emerges from de underground. How to keep people far from the truth? Keeping them away from its source.
It will be not the first newspaper to do such "erasing" : all other periodical that would help to construct "Foro" façade must put Olavo out from its pages.
In a twisted way they succeeded in their efforts to stop Olavo to write on "Foro". At least no more on "Globo" pages. Who will be the next?
For all of us, now it´s official: "Foro de Sao Paulo" is a harmless and democratic gathering of leftist parties in LA. Just it. Olavo? Never heard of him
