The World Is Upside Down - Part One

September 25, 2013

The earth isn’t cubed yet, like Bizarro World, but it increasingly seems to be upside down, inside out and moving backward instead of forward.

The fictional planet Htrae, aka Bizarro World, was invented by D.C. Comics as a comic spinoff from the typically stiff and serious world of Superman.  On Bizarro World, people would buy bonds to lose money and politicians would be put in charge because of their stupidity.  On Htrae, black is white and wrong is right.

Is Earth any different?  In today’s world, we have a President who “leads from behind.”  He snubs allies, but meets and negotiates with dictators, such as the president of Iran, who refuses to even shake his hand.

We have a United Nations that’s run by the thugs of the world.  The United Nations seems to exist to criticize the United States and Israel, even though America is its main source of funding and Israel is America’s ally.

Con #7: The Formerly “Free” Internet

December 17, 2012

We’ve allowed the world’s most repressive dictators to take over control of the United Nations.  Now, they’re using that power to take over control of the Internet.

The Internet has become an important weapon in advancing freedom, because it enables instant communication around the world.  People who are repressed can use the Internet to organize, communicate and alert others about their situation.  But that’s about to change.
