Why Do They Want Us To Shut Up?

If we were harmless, the riot cops would stay home.
If we were harmless, the riot cops would stay home.

It’s Friday. It’s been a long week. Like most weeks. We are taught to fit in and obey.

We are told that individuality and the search for social justice will get us in trouble, either by government surveillance or social ostracism.

We speak out, still. We put on our Guy Fawkes masks, or not. We endure trolls online.

But this one’s for you.

If the Occupy Movement were no threat, there wouldn’t have been a massive, coordinated, international effort among the elites, their media and their governments to squash it FAST before it dug in.

I recall the email a little over two years ago from Adbusters. Truly, that email changed the world as we know it.

But we have been sidelined. We have been fatigued, threatened, and coerced into no longer taking kids in strollers to rallies lest we get kettled and our children taken from us.

But they want us to be afraid. To stay silent. They want us to feel overwhelmed. But every time we hit the streets, they send the riot cops.

It’s not about democracy anymore. It’s about the survival of the elites.

Are you mad as hell and not going to take it anymore? Even Network was a warning to us because even Howard Beale was assassinated, by, it turns out, his corporate overlords/parasites.

But we are more like Anonymous than Howard Beale. We have the numbers.

Next week when we wake up, let’s remember how much we outnumber the 1%, the elites, the ones who send the police when we try to express ourselves.

New Care Cards: The Latest #BCpoli Corruption

I’m getting quite sick of the corporate welfare corruption.

The Skytrain turnstiles financial sledghammer to kill the relatively inexpensive fly of free riders irks me. Doubly so because I think transit should be fare-free anyway.

Now there’s the latest gift to some soon-to-be thrilled corporate shareholder crew of new care cards. A boondoggle solution in search of a problem. If there’s no problem, that’s ok, just estimate the extent of a problem and you’re good to go. Unless you believe in responsible government. And unless you are as concerned as Anonymous is about your identity theft; watch their latest video below.

The new cards will cost $150 million over 3 years.

Two years ago the government estimated care card healthcare fraud cost us all a quarter of a billion dollars.

When asked for “facts”, they produced $3 million in wrongful billing.

So once again this corrupt corporate welfare-loving government is spending 50x the money it is losing to fix a problem.

Follow the money.

The government argues the new cards, which will cost $150 million over five years, will cut back on health care fraud, improve patient safety and provide British Columbians with convenient government ID.

Privacy critics warn that they represent a de facto form of what can easily be turned into a national identity card that can be used to track and control Canadians and that will make it easier for hackers to steal your private health information.

When they were announced two years ago by then health minister Mike de Jong, the cards were pitched as a solution to health care fraud. The government estimated that some $260 million a year was being lost to fraud.

That number was pure speculation, however, since they had identified just $3 million in wrongful billing and no one had been charged for several years with fraud.
