Re: Buddhist Extremist Cell Vows To Unleash Tranquility On West

THIS is my contribution to the unleashing of tranquility on the whole world!! These guys are all about this. Steve Kilby and Martin Kennedy have created songs based on commissions from the public who ask for songs to be written about subjects/stories of importance to them. The first link is the firs...

Re: TPP: Investor-state dispute settlements=corporate terrorism!

Unbelievable how quickly a thread can fall down the page behind new meaningless threads... :wink: More likely it’s because there’s really nobody arguing for this thing. In that regard I’d say 127 posts essentially saying “this is bullshit!” is quite the accomplishment. :wink: You are kidding...right?

Re: TPP: Investor-state dispute settlements=corporate terrorism!

I found this: The treaty is still being negotiated, although 151 Democratic US representatives have come out against Obama's "use of outdated 'Fast Track' procedures that usurp Congress’s authority over trade matters." Twenty-two House Republicans similarly opposed Obama's use of Fast Track authori...

Re: Cyberpunk

Looks great. I was already thinking it had hints of Blade Runner (my fave film of all time) before the voiceover mentioned it. Also a little William Gibson (Neuromancer) although not having seen much maybe that is not accurate. But anything which even vaguely resembles Bladerunner has got my attenti...

It's nearly Xmas...AGAIN!!!

I can't believe another year has passed already. I forgot how close it was until my sister emailed me and asked what my plans were! 8O We (extended family) usually gather for a barbecue on Xmas day (I would prefer to take off and find a quiet place in the country until the whole thing passes). What ...

Re: Investor-state dispute settlements=corporate terrorism!

Here is something inspiring someone (a fellow musician) just shared with me (on facebook...how ironic, but how telling). It is worth listening to the whole thing because, coincidentally, it fits with what we are discussing. I found it inspiring. :-) oops....almost forgot to post the link :oops: htt...

Re: Investor-state dispute settlements=corporate terrorism!

"Another question for those in the know about the TPP: Is this supposed to be a multinational body like the EU (with Parlaments and shit) or more like a trade agreement like NAFTA?" Tom, I pinched your question from the other thread so you could get an answer. ;-) It is more like the latter...with c...

Two pieces of information here will demonstrate how the TPP and Investor State dispute settlement processes under these trade agreements will endanger many natural water resources around the world. This Australian example will explain how many essential natural resources such as water and farmland w...

Re: Investor-state dispute settlements=corporate terrorism!

We need to group track this thread and https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=199323 I’m getting confused.

It's your thread, so you decide if you want to tell me more. I would certainly enjoy reading about it, if you would.

Re: Investor-state dispute settlements=corporate terrorism!

And how does this off grid concept of yours scale to the world population. Not even speaking about how you plan to convince a lot of people of doing this. Who controls the grids controls the world, and we just discovered in June, that the NSA has the power over the most essential Grid to our Societ...
