Libricide and the Gilded Gorillas

Dissident Voice Article

By Kathleen Wallace Peine

5,000 books at Occupy Wall Street were unceremoniously placed in a dumpster (now the NYPD claim it was simply a “sanitation truck”) during the inevitable night time raid. I say “inevitable” due to the moral decay of those in power in NYC. These books were all donated, many one at a time, by generous lovers of the written word — the free expression of it, that is. In response to widespread anger, the NYPD is saying that the books were not really destroyed and can be picked up later this week. Regardless, eyewitnesses say they were put in a dumpster.

OWS doesn’t sound convinced by the NYPD claims, and I wait with curiosity to find out what will transpire when people go to claim them. I’m sure that the books will be quite usable if they weren’t destroyed. Lord knows, time in dumpsters or “sanitation trucks” will do wonders for page crispness and scent. I actually like to do my reading at dumps for the ambiance.

Here’s a little trick brought to you by a lover of simplicity: did you know that you can look at any political group or entity in power, then look at how they treat books? Do they value or destroy them? This will allow you to figure out who the good guys are! Pretty simple, huh? Decent entities do not fear sunlight or the free exchange of ideas. It’s a certain truth. Folks who burn books or tear down libraries are never who you want in charge. But they always seem to find their way there, don’t they?

It’s obvious when a nation has reached a dangerous time — when books are targeted as dangerous trash to remove. Hey, that’s sort of how they treated the OWS protesters themselves. They are full of ideas and open horizons – the Bloomberg billionaires don’t want that sort of thing to dwell in the minds of the staff (or would be staff). And the first OWS encampment was a hotbed for the sharing of these ideals.

And let me get this straight….in order to improve on the hygiene of the park, they took items in trash trucks to redistribute later? Sure.

None of it makes sense because once again, they destroy to save, beat to bring order, and create filth to bring cleanliness.

And certainly a myriad of possessions in the camp were treated with the destructive glee end of a beating stick. The NYPD is claiming that other items can be picked up with a photo id. Umm, yeah — that’s probably a safe thing to do! Go hand over your identification and get a “sorry, don’t know where your laptop is, but make sure you enjoy the hand up your crotch next time you go to an airport!” And I’m still skeptical that all the books will be returned. Books are dangerous, as are the thoughts that percolate after reading them. They were not to be saved, nor should the humanity behind their donation be noticed. But we shall see where we are on the trajectory towards Kakistocracy (look it up…it’s a word that fits)- if they return the books in usable condition or not.

A shared library full of truthful books is emblematic of a decency that they probably want to extinguish. Wow, even anarchists will return books for others to use in a timely fashion — who knew?! We can’t let it out that community can occur, even when a homeless subset who are violent are dumped nearby (wink, wink from the agent saboteurs). It’s amazing that the OWS NY camp held together as well as it did with tricks and malice in their every direction.

That was truly one of the first endearing stories that emerged from OWS — that of the shared library. Picturing those books in that goddamn city dumpster/trash truck-whatever it was should fill all with a disgust for the Bloombergs of the world. They are the true barbarians. Gilded gorillas, nothing more, confusing their wealth with worth.

I wonder if the outcry about the books had some low level employees dumpster fishing late Tuesday night, pulling out books to return? Did they realize at that moment that they were part of the 99%?

Education is not a free right of a free man according to those who want to destroy the OWS core values. It is to be financed, only through student loan penury and later servitude in an institution geared to grind out only the facilitators to the elite. It’s also no accident that in our society libraries so often face the budget cuts while graft laden deals mark much of even our local expenditures. Roads to hell, paved not with good intentions, but with deals that drain coffers. Rotten from the top, rotten to the core. And OWS sees it, hence all the drama.

But yes, Bloomberg, you cleaned up your girlfriend’s park, didn’t you? Funny so many stretches in NYC don’t get the same attention. A friend mentioned to me that perhaps a poor neighborhood should put in a big statue of a bull. That seems to ensure police patrols and presence.

I hope that in this coming time of winter solitude, the long nights and introspection will mark another chapter of the OWS protests. A hibernation and rejuvenation. And I hope that with the coming of spring, that the movement will re-emerge with vigor and righteous anger. I want to see Punxatawny Phil emerge, not just with a shadow, but with rabies.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
