One of the things I’ve found interesting about being involved in writing for The Standard is getting to recognise the particular thoughtfulness of some of those who regularly comment. There are some good brains out there, and some highly informed people. Therefore I’d like to share two posts I’ve read/watched of late. I’m a scattergun reader, usually trying to fit it in around my ‘real’ writing, in the little gaps throughout my day. So I’d appreciate your thoughts. True? False? If so, so what? Does this scare the bejezus out of you or is it just another conspiracy theory? (though I hesitate to use the phrase, given our PMs love affair with it when confronted by the truth!) I have to say just seeing the words ‘World War III’ written so starkly is pretty damn unsettling.
The first info came in the form of a video posted via Facebook:
I don’t know much about this crowd so was unsure how much to believe. But it certainly unsettled me.
Then, a couple of weeks ago I came across this, from John Pilger, which seems to be backing the essential facts of the video up: “Why the rise of fascism is again the issue”
So here you go – would love to know your thoughts! Let the game begin!
