defunct. The fact is the many interesting sites have been put up by
poor people who cannot afford miniscule payments to keep their domains

A capitalist with a conscience has given money to repair
the infrastructure of Sarajevo during its siege. The UNPROFOR was more
interested in protecting itself and the reputations of the NATO
generals, but George Soros was more interested in the quality of life
of the people. Rather than seeing the sort of dystopia (opposite to
utopia) where the end of the Cold War brings in co-operation between
the CIA, FBI and former KGB to oppress anyone who disagrees with the
party line, George Soros is actually spending money to promote freedom
of thought and expression.
Nothing threatens freedom of expression
more than the WAR on DRUGS. It is this policy which causes the UK to
jail a writer for nothing more than the material in his book. The War
on Drugs is more dangerous than ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM because it is
waged by the USA, and the USA has nuclear weapons and vast military and
By 2000 the WAR on DRUGS has become a WAR on LIFE. Both the USA and the UK
are sponsoring malicious genetic research. We all know how fast malicious
computer programs spread. Well, the USA government wants to breed a
fungus to kill cocaine plants in Colombia, while the UK has set scientists
to work with former Soviet germ warfare experts in Kazakhstan in order
to eradicate the opium poppy species.
Luckily some of these resources may also be
used to combat the propaganda which infects the print media nowadays.

SLORC stands for State Law and Order Restoration Council. A
nightmare dreamed up by George Orwell, or Philip K Dick ? You are
wrong. This is the ruling coalition in Myanmar in the 1990s.
Myanmar, formerly Burma, was colonised by the British in the 1800s,
following the demonisation of its rulers by the imperialist press of
the era. In fact foreign domination proved a disaster, especially when
the country became a battleground in the war between the Anglo-Saxons
and Japanese between 1941-45.
It has always been fashionable to denounce regimes such as SLORC in
liberal circles. A typical example of this can be found in the film

Student protests in Serbia have been getting larger during November
and December, 1996. Considering the bitter weather of the Serbian
winter, the stamina of the protesters must be praised.
Although the demonstrations of up to 200000 are not reported by the
official Serbian media, the academic community has made their computers
available. This is perhaps the first time in history that we have the
privilege to see student bulletins circulated world wide outside the

The PEACE NOW website contains material in English and Hebrew. As it
happens there now some palestinians who understand Hebrew better than
Arabic. Modern Hebrew is a recently invented language and many words
describing science and technology were taken from modern arabic.

The Committee Against Corruption in Saudi Arabia have
updated their website to include vast sections of a book on the Bank of
Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). This book contains important
background material on the methods used in the 'War on Drugs', and
sceptics of the WoD have to thank CACSA for making this material
available over the net.
The Saudi group called Committee to Defend Legitimate Rights have
been able to draw attention to some of the current eveils in Saudi
Society. Already in the 1980s it was quite evident that Allah was

part of the culture, and during the 1970s and 80s the government and
tourism industry were very liberal about commercial sex.

The UK always had prostitution. Boswell and Defoe have documented
this in past times. Attitudes and prices in contemporary UK vary very
much between regions. In London there are adverts for the services of
whores stuck onto telephone boxes. Prices vary, although the high cost
of rents tends to make prices high. A flat in Park West above Edgware
Road could cost a group of girls in excess of one thousand punds a
Northern cities are generally cheaper. There is far less money
there. A good listing can be found at Harmless Games.

RAISE POLITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS. BANGKOK 1974-78
In Germany and France the street demonstrators of the 1960s are now
close to the center of power. This is also true in current day Thailand
where some of the current leaders were once forced to take up arms to
oppose state power, and US Imperialism.
The Bangkok Post shows a retrospective of Maoist inspired street art
from the turbulent years of 1973-76. During this time the Thai people
were determined not to let their alliance with the Americans drag them
into defeat. Artists were very influential in these events: more so
than they have been in recent European Culture.

idiocy behind the 'FORTRESS EUROPE' project so beloved by our modern
leaders. Since the frontiers crumbled in 1989 it has been a
preoccupation of EU leaders to make sure they do not remain too
Unfortunately these great leaders are still spending time praising

is embedded in many files.
The political stuff on this site is
contentious, but the site contains a verification engine which can
check out the contents of certain other sites for truth. These sites
will mostly be other maths sites, and in particular you could try the
first kara number sequence on Sloane's site.
The integer sequences act as confidence or trust indicators, and their
generation is often used to benchmark computers.
If someone else is able to make use the materials on this site honestly,
then they are welcome, while those who act dishonestly will fall
victims to their own bad karma.
