On intellectual freedom: something to challenge what most of us have been led to believe about 'language' and 'communication', and indeed the degree to which we have been led to disregard thought, erroneously, and a little bit on how little we actually know about the universe, eg the fact that the law of inertia is "of no known origin" (as Feynman put it) - nobody knows the reason why things coast forever. More on the Feynman another time, first, digest the Chomsky.
The Blair-led Islamophobes use the pretence of 'anti-semitism', smearing all British muslims (the majority of whom are obviously incensed by Israeli genocide and apartheid), by association, with "anti-semitism" (other than uncle Tommohammeds whom they use as tokens to help them pretend they and their supporters are "not racist") and pandering to the Islamophobes Boris and the Tories and Farage have all pandered to, to win votes from white racist voters. Is Labour ready to pay the same price those guys are paying? This is the most strong and stable time in Labour's history, it seems. Does Corbyn want to risk letting Hodge, who voted to bomb Iraq under Blair, and those like her and Blair take away all that the Labour party has achieved?
If the USA armed the far right in Europe to slay many Europeans, and Americans militarily 'intervened' in Europe, supporting those 'troops' - would you blame the millions of British and European deaths on British and European people or on Americans?
<< It's time for this world of office-worker-proclaimed "professionals" to lose a good dose of their terminal arrogance. >> Just a few facts for you to dig into before the media roundups and other activity really kicks off on this site.
Many left wing jews are not jews, opponent of Palestinian rights Momentum's Lansman feels. Only jews who agree with him are real jews, he clearly thinks, in that deranged way religious fundamentalists think.
Next, we'll need to address white collar criminals who attempt to pretend Corbyn and the movements supporting him victimise bankers and capitalists. For this Max Keiser's journalism can be very useful, not just that of left wing intellectual leaders like Alex Cockburn.
From the Good-old (doesn't Guard)ian: Hard Remain daily Corbyn smears, Jingoism for Women, Climate crisis, the horrific death of Mariam Moustafa in Nottingham. And in other news, some tory men in suits playing intellectually-dishonest disingenuous political and verbal tennis.

Britain's virulent racism. If Rory Stewart wants to convince us he's not onside with the racists, he should talk about this problem. Well Rory? Are you a fake? Or can you do as Corbyn does and stand up to white British racism? Did your 'military' career only teach you cowardice or can you be a public servant who protects us?
What is now Bangladesh was one of the richest parts of the world before the British arrived and deliberately destroyed its cotton industry. When India's Andaman islands were devastated by December's tsunami, who recalled that 80,000 political prisoners had been held in camps there in the early 20th-century, routinely experimented on by British army doctors? Perhaps it's not surprising that Hitler was an enthusiast, describing the British empire as an "inestimable factor of value", even if it had been acquired with "force and often brutality" (Milne).
Some Saturday Night entertainment. An extract from a collection of stories I'm working on called "Bob and the Quantum Leap" or "Bob and The Spacetime Traveller". Not sure yet. That old uncertainty principle, eh?

Direction of resistance:
Removal of resistance:
Point 42: On intellectual freedom: something to challenge what most of us have been led to believe about 'language' and 'communication', and indeed the degree to which we have been led to disregard thought, erroneously, and a little bit on how little we actually know about the universe, eg the fact that the law of inertia is "of no known origin" (as Feynman put it) - nobody knows the reason why things coast forever. More on the Feynman another time, first, digest the Chomsky.
Thrust: (Much of this taken from my numberwang document, in the references below).
Direction of resistance: I think the following extracts from written material on Chomsky's site will give you yet more awareness of how much our ideas fall short of what the average human imagines our ideas to be.
Removal of resistance: And whilst I'm sure you need a rest from the head-fuck, I have to ensure I mention something about what Chomsky has told us about 'empiricism', which is very very important as far as I can see. He has told us: << Hume, for example, really did his best to show that his elementary principles concerning the acquisition of human knowledge were sufficient to cover an interesting class of cases and challenged his opponents to produce a legitimate "idea" that could not be derived from sense impression by his principles. There is a certain kind of ambiguity in his procedure here, since in part he seems to be engaged in a kind of scientific inquiry, trying to show that certain principles he proposed were in fact adequate to cover the crucial cases, while at other times he relies on these principles to demonstrate that some notion is "illegitimate," since it cannot be derived by them - an argument that rests on our accepting his not very plausible principles concerning the nature of the mind. Hume regarded the principle of inductive reasoning as a kind of "animal instinct," which would appear to be an empirical assumption. In modern versions, his assumptions have often been converted into dogma presupposed without serious effort to show them to be valid, or to reply to classical criticisms that were raised against these principles.
Unification: Most people are far more concerned about freedom of speech than about freedom of thought, and yet thought is much much much more important than speech and limitation of thought, unintentional and intentional both, as well as control of it and censorship of it and policing of it, these topics, starting with basic ways in which thought is limited by anyone or anything outside of you individually, should be of maximum interest to you and concern to you, whoever you are. And if you suspect that you won't digest or remember all the key points in this document unless you read it a few times, I have to admit I think you're probably onto something there.
Point 41: British police make statement declaring Britain a totalitarian state on matters of press freedom - former Tory Chancellor contradicts them.
Thrust: On the topic of Darroch, whom Craig Murray reminds us is a fully fledged war monger NATO git and pity for him is somewhat absurd, the police issued a statement ordering the press to follow totalitarian law set out arbitrarily by one random police officer rather than honouring Magna Carta and the freedoms afforded to us in our democracy. No need for a d-notice, the police officer feels, just basically do what the police officer (or perhaps any police officer ever) tells you, with no reference to law or judges or juries, or press freedom.
Direction of resistance: To be precise the officer said: << I would advise all owners, editors and publishers of social and mainstream media not to publish leaked government documents that may already be in their possession, or which may be offered to them, and to turn them over to the police or give them back to their rightful owner, Her Majesty's Government. >>
Removal of resistance: The Guardian tells us: << Osborne described the statement as "ill-advised .. If I were the Metropolitan police commissioner, and I wanted to maintain my credibility and the credibility of my force, I would quickly distance myself from this very stupid and ill-advised statement from a junior officer who doesn't appear to understand much about press freedom." >>
Unification: They inform us << Tim Shipman, political editor of the Sunday Times, criticised the "sinister, absurd, anti-democratic statement this evening threatening journalists with arrest for printing government leaks" >> and then tell us how Shipman then followed this with some racist remarks about Russia, essentially, ruining an otherwise good observation.
Point 40: Jeremy Corbyn vs the new Tory 'leader'.
Direction of resistance: That's from Jeremy Corbyn's facebook page.
Removal of resistance: I have no idea how many readers out there will be exposed to much or any of those words via the mainstream media.
Unification: Corbyn has said what he has said. What happens to Britain now is in your hands, readers, voters and apathetic masses.
Point 39: Obedience, education and capitalism.
Thrust: Coming soon, to this space.
Direction of resistance: Mainly just a transcription of what Chomsky has to say about obedience and education and the relationship of both to commercial society and/or indeed "capitalism".
Removal of resistance: The transcription about education etc makes it easy to understand, with emotions and knee-jerk responses stripped away, what causes people to be like Owen Jones or Robert Webb or causes men like Donald Trump and women like Hillary Clinton to be 'elected' 'president' and women like Theresa May and men like Boris Johnson to be 'elected' 'Prime Minister'. The cause is the same, the root is the same and you can see from the Chomsky transcription coming to this spot soon very clearly why it is that these fairly stupid characters misguide a relatively stupid society ever onwards towards a now demonstrably near global meltdown - driven, ever more aggressively, by men like Trump and Johnson, indeed.
Unification: It will take me a little time to transcribe the Chomsky as I haven't found any transcription online. It's slow work, is transcribing Chomsky. At least if you want to do it properly.
"Oh they'll never get the bandit express"
Point 38: Owen Jones' capacity for learning seems weaker than I had imagined (and I hadn't thought much of him, so that's pretty awful).
Thrust: The recent events concerning Chris Williamson, who 'claimed' to some extent that the 'anti-semitism' smears thrown at the Labour party are disingenuous and need to be faced responsibly and called out for what they are, has been followed by Owen Jones toeing the (Blair-and-Thatcher)-party line and 'telling off' Williamson etc.
Direction of resistance: Jones has learned nothing at all from the ("numberwang") document in the references below even though it has been around for months already, the opening very clear and pertinent and capable of educating Jones - and whilst hundreds, maybe thousands of people have accessed it and read at least part of it, Jones, whether he has read any of it or not (I'd definitely bet not), has learned nothing from it.
Removal of resistance: Over a period of months, Jones, in an average/normal set of (however many) months, is presumably going around in circles patting himself on the back regularly for being so wonderful, never learning one single thing, just constantly improving his ability to put on a neoliberal play-act.
Unification: In fact, reader, in a period of a few months almost all of you should be aiming, almost all of the time, to progress, develop, learn, evolve. For people like Jones it seems that 'progress' really means nothing but 'take take take' (from the world). 'Giving' to the world is never seen as 'progress' to such materialistic base minds. Thus learning is something they never feel naturally inclined towards. Your presence, as a reader, at the end of this paragraph, particularly if you reached it by starting at the beginning and journeying along the words all the way, shows you are at least slightly different to those, like Jones, who seem designed to never learn. No need to post references to his attacks on Williamson. I'm sure the popular corporate media will spread the links far and wide and you'll easily find em if you look!
Point 37: Chomsky on "the future of capitalism".
Direction of resistance: I took a particularly poor transcription of that and cleaned it up. Hopefully cleaned now.
Removal of resistance: I suggest you read it a few times over since the material it contains is all pretty seriously fundamental to the survival of you and anyone you "love".
Unification: I will take key extracts from it and summarise much of its content to aid and abet education of people, asap, in what Chomsky is saying in the above interview. Watch the whole extract on youtube via the link in the references below, if you prefer.
Point 36: The Blair-led Islamophobes use the pretence of 'anti-semitism', smearing all British muslims (the majority of whom are obviously incensed by Israeli genocide and apartheid), by association, with "anti-semitism" (other than uncle Tommohammeds whom they use as tokens to help them pretend they and their supporters are "not racist") and pandering to the Islamophobes Boris and the Tories and Farage have all pandered to, to win votes from white racist voters. Is Labour ready to pay the same price those guys are paying? This is the most strong and stable time in Labour's history, it seems. Does Corbyn want to risk letting Hodge, who voted to bomb Iraq under Blair, and those like her and Blair take away all that the Labour party has achieved?
Thrust: Jeremy Corbyn, and others whom it may concern, I have been reading grid point 21: << Many left wing jews are not jews, opponent of Palestinian rights Momentum's Lansman feels. Only jews who agree with him are real jews, he clearly thinks, in that deranged way religious fundamentalists think >> and I have just seen something - a HUGE danger to YOU - which you cannot see as you are inside the box and I can as I am an outsider - I may vote for Corbyn's Labour but I am 'not Labour' - I am 'anarchist' and 100% unpartisan, will probably never join any party, not even Labour, probably.
Direction of resistance: So this is it - the Tories display their Islamophobia in order to prove themselves to the voters they want.
Removal of resistance: LABOUR's false 'anti-semitism' scandal is actually definitely driven by a need by that part of Labour's desire to appease the same voters. Their version of abusing muslims is deeming all muslims anti-semites, by assocation, other than a few Uncle Tomohammeds like Chukkka the British mini-Obama (without the pzazz).
Unification: So to repeat, and clarify, and sum up: the racist members of Labour want to appeal to the SAME vote that the Islamophobic Tories do - the antisemitism fiasco is even more disingenuous than I realised. They are doing it precisely because it 'proves' to lots of white racists that they too hate muslims, but they do so in a way which is 'unovert' and thus many oblivious white middle class people and white working class people who are unsuspecting can go along with it, supporting Blair-Labour's rampant Islamophobia. The Harvey Weinstein jewish hollywood grooming gang thought experiment demonstrates clearly who the rampant Islamophobes in Labour are. Anyway readers, maybe this map of what is in front of me and what you are stuck inside can help you a little. The answer is there - they are electioneering and seeking the Islamophobic vote when they call you 'anti-semitic'.
Point 35: Nick Clegg condemns Facebook's and Twitter's determination of what constitutes 'hate speech' as unfit for purpose and calls upon democracy to intervene.
Thrust: In an article in the Telegraph Nick Clegg has admitted that Twitter and Facebook mislead people with their categorisations of 'hate speech'.
Direction of resistance: I was posting this a lot on twitter, in response to idiots, in different forms, not always exactly the same words: << The sincerity of those who claim to mourn the holocaust of jews a century ago is not real if such people are silent about the genocides committed by the USA, Europe and Israel THIS century, THIS decade, THIS year, THIS week, THIS morning, THIS minute. >>
Removal of resistance: Some people, you see, can only 'win' an argument by making sure nobody hears what their opponent is saying.
Unification: << The former deputy Prime Minister, who now heads Facebook's global affairs team, claimed that there was a "pressing need" to introduce new "rules of the road" to determine appropriate use of user data, as well as what counts as hate speech. >>
Point 34: The web of deceit that is 'the west' now faces "false false flags".
Thrust: Counterpunch tells us: << Even if its ostensible European and Asian friends capitulate to them - as they are doing, despite their professions of solidarity - Iran is not going to discuss or negotiate or live under crippling sanctions imposed by the US. It is going to act against them. It's done seeking relief from its completely untrustworthy besieger through infinitely regressive talks. It's determined not to talk about the siege, but to break it. >>
Direction of resistance: They warn: << Iran is now going to act in ways that require Europe and Japan either to put up right quick about their promises to defy US sanctions and abide by their commitments in the JCPOA, or to shut up, watch Iran fight back, and pay the consequences. It is telling the US and the Trump administration that it better back off on the sanctions, or face Iran's version of "maximum pressure." >>
Removal of resistance: I don't think any commentators are really ready for what will happen if Iran does, in the end, decide to 'fight to the death' against the white supremacist imperial forces which plague so much of the world.
Unification: So I won't try to predict it myself. Other than to say we should blatantly do what we can to prevent that - ie we should force the USA to 'make peace' with Iran, and force Israel to do the same, obviously (can't do one without the other).
Point 33: A speculation about Mark Field.
Thrust: In the room, he was there, and only those in it who weren't in his way were in it - this is my theory. For some reason it was some (perhaps one of many, regular) good moment for him, some new small 'victory' within the private sphere of his work and play.
Direction of resistance: And then some 'stupid woman' came and was ruining it and he had to remove her.
Removal of resistance: Normally, within that sphere, since totalitarianism is essentially the law INSIDE any corporation or similar private grouping of people, his way of removing obstacles was, through words and financial actions (hirings and firings, snubbings and social beatings - among himself and all present there - all subject to the same jungle law, totalitarian law inside the world of private concentrated power) exactly what we saw turned into physical action.
Unification: In other words, for the simple, he overlooked the fact that the activist was not one of his 'tribe' and treated her by internal tribal rules instead of those genuinely acceptable to extra-tribal 'law' (the spirit of our laws and the unspoken morality of people everywhere, albeit outside of corporations and totalitarian frameworks like them).
Point 32: Sunday sermon: sobering thoughts from the adults across the pond.
Thrust: Kenn Orphan writes: << Thousands of socialists and leftists were marched into stadiums in Chile in the 1970s and gunned down, tortured, or disappeared in a country with a much smaller military than the US. Between 1965 and 1966, at least a million communists, or those believed to be communists, were hunted down and brutally murdered in Indonesia by rightwing death squads and the police. And millions of Jews, Roma, communists, homosexuals and the disabled were persecuted, rounded up and sent to concentration camps in the 1930s and 40s in Germany and Nazi occupied countries, where most perished at a time when many ordinary people thought "the logistics" of doing something like that were too "enormous" to be fathomed, much less carried out. And each atrocity was preceded by the rise of a pernicious fascism and the language of dehumanization by leaders. >>
Direction of resistance: The neoliberals may remain in denial but you reader ought to heed Orphan's warning: << One thing history has proven is that mass atrocity can be committed with few people, with great efficiency at a moment's notice, little technology, and with shocking approval or the complacence of the majority of ordinary people. But it must first be normalized. To be sure, if a people can tolerate dehumanizing language of entire groups by its leader, and the utterly sadistic policy of ripping children from the arms of their parents and putting them in cages, or pregnant women being shackled to beds, or the torture of non-violent LGBTQ and mentally ill migrants via solitary confinement for days, or militias working in tandem with government agencies to round up unarmed migrants, or a government prosecuting those who provide water and shelter to other human beings in desperate need, it is certainly capable of tolerating, or even applauding, even worse monstrous depravity. And without a doubt, we are only one absurd tweet away from that potential nightmare. >>
Removal of resistance: And let us not forget, and repeat as often as necessary, what neoliberalism really is, what it is precisely that we are attacking:
Unification: I address my comments above all to the so-called 'genuine left wing' in Britain, ie the (in many ways) admirable movements which together make up one significant part of Jeremy Corbyn's voters and supporters, if we may call them that for now, but they have been doing what they do and Corbyn came out of all that, he didn't create it, the way those who see him as Satan often seem to imagine.
Point 31: If the USA armed the far right in Europe to slay many Europeans, and Americans militarily 'intervened' in Europe, supporting those 'troops' - would you blame the millions of British and European deaths on British and European people or on Americans?
Thrust: Yet if we change British and European to Iraqi or Afghan, then suddenly half the racists out there, at least, pretend that somehow the Iraqis killed themselves, and that American and European and British militarism in the region is "not responsible" for the fact that As many as 7 million innocent, mostly 'muslim' people may have been killed in your name. That's something like 23,000 buildings like the Grenfell Tower all being incinerated in that fashion - that's how many people 'we' have killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, 23,000 lots of the Grenfell Tower. Died in the same way - innocent and in the way of corporations' dollars. All this death has to be stopped and everything leading up to it. 'Our' war machine is beyond the pale.
Direction of resistance: When you prove to a western racist that they are being racist, 999/1000 times they will walk away and refuse to dignify the conversation any more, they will go into total denial and pretend it never happened, perhaps use you as an example of someone evil and 'not western'.
Removal of resistance: These are questions anyone responsible must ask.
Unification: If that's you, ask. Ask yourself, first. And then ask 'truth' - ie research and read everything which is actually necessary - which may help you change what may otherwise happen (if people like you fail to act appropriately and in a timely manner). At the moment some of you are on the brink of setting off the killing of many many more people, perhaps in Iran next. Perhaps all over the Middle East, perhaps all over the world, as a result of your catastrophically stupid and violent activities. Meanwhile you are loudly busy pointing at people like Corbyn and calling him names, and people like me. Whilst we are insisting on change, on education, on cessation of this global gang warfare driven by gluttony and money-worship, and you continue to rack up murder victims of your huge crime spree.
Point 30: Don't be distracted by grotesque pantomime, surgically resolve the systemic flaw.
Thrust: Chomsky explains: << Despite the frank acknowledgment of the need to deceive the public, it would be an error to suppose that practitioners of the art are typically engaged in conscious deceit; few reach the level of sophistication of the Grand Inquisitor or maintain such insights for long. On the contrary, as the intellectuals pursue their grim and demanding vocation, they readily adopt beliefs that serve institutional needs; those who do not will have to seek employment elsewhere. The chairman of the board may sincerely believe that his every waking moment is dedicated to serving human needs. Were he to act on these delusions instead of pursuing profit and market share, he would no longer be chairman of the board. It is probable that the most inhuman monsters, even the Himmlers and the Mengeles, convince themselves that they are engaged in noble and courageous acts. The psychology of leaders is a topic of little interest. The institutional factors that constrain their actions and beliefs are what merit attention. >>
Direction of resistance: Whether 'left' or 'right' or 'center' or 'people who don't compartmentalise fanatically', everyone's talking about people like Johnson and Trump from the point of view of their friend or relative or opponent - making it personal.
Removal of resistance: This is what corporate power needs you to do. Some MP was attacking people who try to hold corporations to account, the other day. This Chomsky quote is vital to repeat to her until she grows up. Childish idiots like you, dear MP, should resign. You have NO RIGHT to be an MP. Your intellect is absolutely insufficient and your integrity is therefore faulty - or, if you know exactly what you're doing, your integrity is absolutely disgustingly absent. Here's the Chomsky, you silly fake-public-servant:
Unification: Every reader here should take a look in the mirror, you've been doing it for years - being distracted by personality contests and your own lazy inability to follow through anything other than the easiest and lowest common denominator.
Point 29: "The psychology of leaders is a topic of little interest. The institutional factors that constrain their actions and beliefs are what merit attention." (Chomsky).
Thrust: Institutional factors constraining the actions and beliefs of our leaders. Take a look at them.
Direction of resistance: Institutional factors constraining the actions and beliefs of our 'academics' and 'intellectuals'. Take a look at them.
Removal of resistance: Institutional factors constraining the actions and beliefs of our 'media' and 'legal workforce'. Take a look at them.
Unification: Institutional factors constraining the actions and beliefs of everyone in society, from top to bottom. Take a look at them.
Point 28: We're going to move the mountain.
Direction of resistance: Isn't it tragic that a society which can produce something as beautiful as that can also yield minds and personalities as hideous as those of Katie Hopkins or Tommy Robinson, Tony Blair or Philip Green?
Removal of resistance: Well look on the bright side.
Unification: Consider the meaning of that song. Get hold of it and have a listen - the video is particularly good, I think.
Point 27: << It's time for this world of office-worker-proclaimed "professionals" to lose a good dose of their terminal arrogance. >> Just a few facts for you to dig into before the media roundups and other activity really kicks off on this site.
Direction of resistance: << CHOMSKY: Well this raises quite a welter of questions. Let me begin by saying something about liberalism, which is a very complicated concept, I think. It's correct, surely, that liberalism grew up in the intellectual environment of empiricism and the rejection of authority, and trust in the evidence of the senses, and so on. However, liberalism has undergone a very complex evolution as a social philosophy over the years. If we go back to the classics, or at least, what I regard as the classics, say, for example, Humboldt's limits of state action which inspired Mill and is a true libertarian, liberal classic, if you'd like. The world that Humboldt was considering--which was partially an imaginary world--but the world for which he was developing this political philosophy, was a post-feudal but pre-capitalist world.
Removal of resistance: Chomsky states in the preface to Necessary Illusions the opinion that << citizens of the democratic societies should undertake a course of intellectual self-defense to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay the basis for more meaningful democracy. >>
Point 26: Another Branson scheme goes tits up.
Thrust: 21st Century Wire reports << It was all the rage back in February - Sir Richard Branson, the maverick billionaire entrepreneur of Virgin fame, proudly announced he was organizing a new "Live Aid" benefit concert in the Colombian city Cúcuta, all to help the 'poor people' of Venezuela who we're told were being starved to death by the evil Maduro regime. The event was held on February 22, and attracted some 200,000 punters, with the goal of raising $100 million to buy food and medicine for Venezuelans teetering on the brink of a mass famine. 'Feed the world' rang once more. But the media fairy tale would be short-lived.
Direction of resistance: They also inform us: << Guaidó's staff botched the distribution of aid sent by the US, with an estimated 60 percent rotting in the warehouses and having to be thrown away. The full extent of the scandal is yet to be revealed >>.
Removal of resistance: Meanwhile Mark Steel recommends, on Twitter, that we contribute to the Venezuelan economy by drinking more Venezuelan rum. Given the state of British politics, I feel that a lot of MPs and civil servants could kill two birds with one stone, help Venezuela (with this excellent rum-drinking scheme) and lessen their own misery just a little.
Unification: Almost a year ago today, RT reported: << Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Care group has successfully sued the NHS, after losing out on an £82m contract to provide children's healthcare services in Surrey - pocketing £2m of public money in the process. >>
Point 25: Corbyn as messiah! His reputation died so that the ruling class can sin more!
Thrust: I think some racist commentator in the public eye recently called Corbyn a 'false messiah' - taking things to a biblical plane, as those defending Israel's genocides are prone to do, as a side-effect of their evangelical zeal.
Direction of resistance: In truth Corbyn has been labelled evil so that - we can call all these other people good, even when they grab and body slam protestors against walls.
Removal of resistance: Donald Trump locks children in cages, and the tories and lib dems and Farage-parties (there's so many of them - is Jayda Fransen one of your parties Nige?) just carry on regardless, Hunt and Johnson actively supporting Trump, Farage practically bearing Trump's children and having domestic arguments with him - and the only virulent opposition to him in Britain is Corbyn, whose 'evil' nature is blamed for his 'snub' of Trump.
Unification: Readers, I invite you to have a field day. If you think of anything to add, share it on facebook or twitter and sooner or later I'll find it and add it here. I'll add to the list myself before long but the first two are a good start: bodyslamming activists against walls and locking children in cages - and calling muslim women letterboxes and bank robbers - (that's three) are all now totally acceptable thanks to Corbyn's sacrifice of his reputation.
Point 24: The disillusionment of Abby Tomlinson? Let's hope so. Every good writer is one more to fight the idiots with.
Thrust: In my point << When 'metoo' means "I also refuse to do anything about this nasty man who is manhandling, possibly assaulting a woman at this dinner engagement in front of us all" >> I have looked at how Abby Tomlinson was appalled when she saw a room full of men and women who did fuck all to stand up for a woman being abused by a man (although if it had been a man being abused by another man or by a woman that'd be the same to me, protests are not sex, the gender can be either way, frankly, and we all know it - a woman would have had the protestor dragged away by uniformed men, not really that different to Mark Field's behaviour).
Direction of resistance: The fact is that Tomlinson has clearly been raised the neoliberal way, believing that women and the 'right' men (eg not antiwar ones) are enlightened and must lead everyone else, the way Bernays and Niebuhr have preached. (Look em up, Abby, you need to do a lot of homework).
Removal of resistance: In the end she saw what men like Corbyn already know - that most of those women, no doubt 'feminist' in 'public' were, in private, actually just paid up members of total immorality! Yes, the morality Tomlinson imagined all the women in the room to have and some of the men at least, turns out to not exist.
Unification: Sorry Abby. It'll be hard for you to cope with what the world really is, and the absurd hypocrisy of what M.G. Piety calls << kneejerk 'feminists' >>, in all probability (that's my speciality, probability) you will go into denial and continue to hold neoliberal beliefs. Alas. Nor will my encouraging you to read TVhobo help, even though it could, but people like you (members of the fake elite) just can't handle reading this. My many many readers never include people like you! More women read it than men, though. Tells us something about your take on 'feminism', though doesn't it?
References: Start investigating Bernays and Niebuhr here, anyone honest but uninformed: http://opinion.tvhobo.com/owenjones_israel_numberwang.html
Point 23: When 'metoo' means "I also refuse to do anything about this nasty man who is manhandling, possibly assaulting a woman at this dinner engagement in front of us all".
Thrust: The Indy writes: <<As we saw last night, in the video of Mark Field manhandling a protester, it happens at black tie dinners, perpetrated by an MP, with more than 100 people watching.
Direction of resistance: << What he did was so unspeakable because he did it so casually, in front of a room full of people, a room full of eyes and cameras. It was as though he thought it was completely normal and justified behaviour towards a woman peacefully protesting, walking past him and barely looking him in the eye. >>
Removal of resistance: I have asked myself why the women and men watching this happen did nothing.
Unification: Abby Tomlinson almost gets that but misses a key point, perhaps blinded by sexism (where one gender is, to you, more important and more universally innocent than the other). How come no women in the room did anything, said anything there on that video, when this happened? When will the 'metoo' movement realise that the abuse of women in our society is not conducted by one gender but by both. If Tomlinson wants to admit that the people at the table are shameful, she must also admit (for it is visible) that some of them are not men. Why did the women say and do nothing when it happened? I did see a rather disconcerted look on the face of the man next to the Tory MP. So maybe there was some reaction. But who intervened? Did any women intervene? No. They were saying 'me too' to the cause of being a paid up member of 'polite'* society.
Point 22: To all the pseudo-intelligent 'well read' people who still find themselves going along with the blatantly false smears and attacks of every form on Corbyn I put one simple question to you?
Thrust: Aren't you a bit ashamed that you allow marketing and advertising - and peer pressure - to force you to 'accept' things which you know if you really thought about it you would absolutely agree are patently untrue? There is no shortage of clear evidence of that fact and you brush it under the carpet, and you know that more than anyone else does.
Direction of resistance: It's you whom Einstein would be most ashamed of.
Removal of resistance: It's you who waste humanity's progress the most.
Unification: The idiots have no way to do anything but what the marketing tells them. That you have let laziness and fear drive you to behave like (and become a paid up section of) the idiots is the same as saying "this part of the human race gives up on evolution and will lay down and die, in amongst the chaos of what a stupidly-run society brings upon us".

Point 21: Many left wing jews are not jews, opponent of Palestinian rights Momentum's Lansman feels. Only jews who agree with him are real jews, he clearly thinks, in that deranged way religious fundamentalists think.
Thrust: The Canary informs us:
Direction of resistance: The Canary's conclusion: << Who is really in denial?
Removal of resistance: To Lansman I have one or two things to say right here, and to all others out there who make up outrageous claims about 'anti-semitism' in order to OBSTRUCT the defence of other people (whether Palestinians, Iraqis, Libyans, Yemenis, Iranians, or anyone else) from genocide and imperialist or mercantile-feudal military attacks and occupations.
Unification: So, Lansman. Let me tell you.
Point 20: Next, we'll need to address white collar criminals who attempt to pretend Corbyn and the movements supporting him victimise bankers and capitalists. For this Max Keiser's journalism can be very useful, not just that of left wing intellectual leaders like Alex Cockburn.
Thrust: First of all, let's look at a classic example of how broken, irresponsible, criminal and criminally negligent the overseeing of our 'financial system' has become.
Direction of resistance: These white collar criminals and their representatives who try and pretend Corbyn's backers do not include a considerable portion of the real elites of this land, across every field, should pay attention to this particular nugget (much more to come, to deal with these particular criminals, right here, with clear arguments) concerning the misallocation of capital. Bear in mind that Keiser is a Wall Street expert. I know how much you'd like to just smear him and ignore him, but the facts are against you:
Removal of resistance: Now take a look at this - extremely rich and powerful individuals and families sucking welfare out of society whilst failing to share due profits with workers, leaving staff paid so little the state has to provide welfare to them to help them survive on such low income:
Unification: Let's finish with a couple of items from the past which, together with what I've said so far, is a kind of starter which these stooges for or actual white collar criminals should try to digest before the main course kicks off, perhaps this weekend or next week:
Point 19: And if you want to be me, be me.
Thrust: << You can do what you want
Direction of resistance: Listen to it on your spotify or such.
Removal of resistance: << Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
Unification: Official Cat Stevens youtube version in references below.
Point 18: 110 days of prison for young Israeli woman who refuses to commit genocide and wants to honour the memory of holocaust victims by not being like those who killed them.
Thrust: 972 blog writes << The Israeli army released conscientious objector Atalya Ben-Abba from mandatory military service on Tuesday after she spent 110 days in military prison for refusing to be drafted. Ben-Abba was released on grounds of unsuitability, after her request to be recognized as a conscientious objector was rejected a day earlier. >>
Direction of resistance: Just as in the USA and Europe younger generations are rejecting the older generations' vitriolic imperialistic race-war on the 'non white' world, even in Israel, where rejecting the alleged racial superiority of Israeli jews is clearly viewed as a particularly immoral position to take, amazing young women like Atalya Ben-Abba are all the more driven to stand up for and defend the sanctity of their heritage from the ignorance of racists whose Israel is no better than Hitler's Germany.
Removal of resistance: Meanwhile attempts by the British government and others to criminalise criticism of Israel and Israel's racism have been overturned in the courts and government actions in that arena have been deemed illegal.
Unification: Your average Britain fake-elite lackey, like Mitchell and Webb or David Baddiel, to use recent examples, will NEVER EVER talk about the reasons why young women like Atalya refuse to condone Israel's genocide or participate in it. Indeed numerous jews who take the same position as her are totally ignored by idiots like Baddiel who clearly seems to think that being 'a jew' is at odds with being someone who believes in equality for all.
Point 17: So what have those who 'strategically' did not vote Corbyn at the general election to 'prevent Brexit' achieved?
Thrust: Well let's turn to Mark Steel for what our new tory government and Prime Minister will no doubt be doing to us, and all who voted for anyone, whether Corbyn or not:
Direction of resistance: Meanwhile the Royal Variety comedians have yet to come up with a single funny joke this century, after years of agonising over it and so very many attempts, the bulk of them televised, merchandised and monetised fully.
Removal of resistance: Robert Webb recently tried: he made a joke on Twitter in which he said something like "if Jeremy Corbyn isn't evil and satan reborn then my bell-end can play Beehoven's ninth on the piano" - I mentioned to him (see numberwang article below) that he was actually no more successful in getting fans for himself, really, than a popular tampon (for example) - ie that he doesn't gain fans through his comedy just through advertising and so on.
Unification: Steel demonstrates how funny you can be if you aren't a sycophant to power and an obedient tool, the way your average establishment comedian tends to be, whether or not Mitchell and Webb, Baddiel, or any of these stick figures (who drive those of us with taste to buy a lot of old dvds, or just write our own comedy and entertainment generally) will ever do anything other than waste humanity's time and resources and fail to be funny, intelligent or useful in any way but to their egos and need for gratification.
Point 16: The Grauniad pines still for its pre-Corbyn days of unchecked genocidal colonialism!
Thrust: On Facebook, this from Tariq Ali: << The puff piece in todays Guardian propaganda section by Patrick Wintour in praise of David Miliband takes one back to thew worst days of Blair's reign. No reference to the Iraq war, its casualties, etc. Nor too Libya. Yesterday there was a free ad for Blair in podcast propaganda. Are they preparing for a new party. Sounds like it >>
Direction of resistance: Can't be arsed to look for it or link to it.
Removal of resistance: The daily banal bullshit of the fleets of brainless western faux-academics and faux-"professionals" is a loathesome thing to handle. Now that I've given us (including me) a little example of the media roundup plan, I may carry on with my plan for a wee holiday first anyway.
Unification: You could always read Tariq Ali's site, if you're looking for something to read right now.
Point 15: From the Good-old (doesn't Guard)ian: Hard Remain daily Corbyn smears, Jingoism for Women, Climate crisis, the horrific death of Mariam Moustafa in Nottingham. And in other news, some tory men in suits playing intellectually-dishonest disingenuous political and verbal tennis.
Thrust: Worst things first, in Nottingham, a girl the Guardian describes as an "Egyptian student" was assaulted by a "gang" of what the Independent calls four teenage girls. Her later death is, the Guardian mentions, "not legally linked" to the incident.
Direction of resistance: So, as well as spotlighting a particularly grim event, perhaps not making much comment about the apparent leniency of the sentence, going along with justifications, the Guardian (I'll check the Independent tomorrow) naturally (as well as a trivial main feature about tory boys and their pantomine) make sure they 'cover' the latest news on Corbyn and 'Brexit' - ie the pursuit of 'hard remain' - the need to force all voters to vote remain, somehow, or undo the referendum which was, after all, a tactic by Cameron, Clegg, Lib dems, Blairites, all the nasty racist shit-heads I loathe because they're morally bankrupt and need to evolve, to destroy Corbyn - they fully believed the referendum would lead to a remain outcome and also destroy Labour, instead it did the opposite (Old Pauline Kenneth Baker was gloating about it at the time of the referendum, look up his article - he was 100% wrong - his predictions for Labour all happened to Conservatives and what he thought would happen to the Conservatives happened to Labour and Cameron had to resign and the Tories are broken forever!)
Removal of resistance: In even more terrible news, generally:
Unification: And then the total dross, for example "Women's World Cup" - I think I'll have to share some Chomsky on Sport with you asap.
Point 14: Guide for office workers, politicians and other special needs humans relating to the area of networked information phenomena, democratic media manifestations and how you can handle them for example if you are electioneering, cheating, lying, exploiting and want to avoid being fully exposed to large audiences as such.
Thrust: Well, the bad news is that by the time they have a white paper ready for you on any particular technological innovation that innovation will already have kicked your arse.
Direction of resistance: Nonetheless, you can always save yourself. There are known ways: be honest, do your job, don't exploit others.
Removal of resistance: Other than that there's really nothing at all you can do to withstand networked technology and that which it makes possible.
Unification: Or did you manage to stop Jeremy Corbyn rising? Well? Did you? Do you feel you did? And yet how many of you even understand the basics of how grassroots online political networking evolves, what really ties it together, what causes it? I'll give you one clue: it works VERY differently to the marketing, advertising and bullshit YOU made all your money thanks to, you workshy talentless Royal Variety performers!!
Point 13: The FAQ on FAQs: maybe it's almost time to take a small step for online debate.
Thrust: I think it's soon going to be time to begin some preliminary roundups of media action.
Direction of resistance: But before that, one last bit of preliminary/preparatory material.
Removal of resistance: An extensive set of 'faqs' is planned for tvhobo now, and so on this page the plans for those faqs can emerge.
Unification: To begin with, without a doubt, an faq on anti-semitism smears and white/jewish racism has to be penned.
Point 12: "The complexity of language which you have to learn when you learn a language is almost entirely externalisation" (Chomsky).
Thrust: In that nutshell (read a longer extract concerning the matter via the link in the references below, and references on that link) lies the problem with the so-called 'west' today.
Direction of resistance: The reason idiots like, for example, Alistair Campbell or Robert Webb or Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton are 'up themselves', (a list of 10,000 people could be made right here right now, but why? You can extrapolate) is that they have been taught to see the complexity of communicated/external language as a great evolutionary trait, and to measure their own 'worth' and 'survivability' in terms of their capacity to learn by rote all sorts of theoretically needlessly complex forms.
Removal of resistance: There must be a hundred different ways in which I can try to explain that problem without there being at least a majority of readers who still do not get it.
Unification: Read the Chomsky. That's the best way to be sure you may manage to comprehend the real nature of the organisation of your mind.
Point 11: Never let your opponent know what to really expect.
Thrust: So on that note let me explain why I'm not bothering to add Jacobin to my list of journalistic sources (I'm sure it doesn't count as a corporate source, but if it does I'll add it there later, once I have evidence that it is a corporate source).
Direction of resistance: So Jacobin, whom I appear to recall having found printing rubbish in the past, have written this false statement:
Removal of resistance: Never mind. Try harder - one day you'll be good enough. But readers here should understand that what Anthony Wallersteiner said was correct and in fact his biggest critic was Margaret Hodge, the Israel poodle who has abused Jeremy Corbyn and called him 'antisemitic'. Jacobin is run by dilettantes, I would say, and that is why they make such basic errors, leap to conclusions, don't really help deal with our opponents in a fully forensic manner.
Unification: Naturally I agree with much of what they say, and of course with the fact that anti-semitism smears are, these days, usually nothing to do with actual anti-semitism and a word used by racists, often Islamophobes, to defend genocide and defend allegiance to genocidal systems and policies. Nonetheless, between Jacobin and Wallersteiner, one is intelligent and honest, the other is sadly not good enough to make my list.
Point 10: Just a quick one.
Thrust: Know your song well, reader.
Direction of resistance: << Dear Ilhan Omar,
Removal of resistance: That's from: JUNE 14, 2019
Unification: Check it out via the link in the references below.
Point 9: Jeremy Hunt condones 'sentiment' behind labelling London 'Londonistan'.
Thrust: The Mirror tells us: << The Foreign Secretary said he "agreed 150%" with the "sentiment" behind the President's swipe at London's mayor on knife crime.
Direction of resistance: I think Mr Hunt needs to read a bit of history and wake up to why it is that racism like Trump's, and presumably Hunt's, is extremely damaging to Britain, its future and it standing worldwide.
Removal of resistance: Please resign Jeremy Hunt. Warsi has defended you like this: << He believes the the term Londonistan is offensive and would never endorse sentiments that try and frame Londons knife crime challenge as a racial or religious phenomenon.
Unification: Our Parliament needs to be rid of shameful racists and their stooges and weak electioneers who (out of fear of losing votes and indeed financial support) refuse to stand against racism when they are in a unique position to stand against it.
Point 8: Science has demonstrated that your 'skin colour' or 'race' has zero link to your mind, your intelligence, etc.
Thrust: 'Western' 'whiteness' is a recent (about 5000 years old) and arbitrary mutation in humans: 'white' skin has only been on 'European' bodies for a few thousand years, before which they were the same as many people they call 'black', eg 'Hispanic', 'Asian', 'African' etc.
Direction of resistance: Chomsky has pointed out (read the long Numberwang related doc in the links below) that thought, as a capacity, evolved hundreds of thousands of years ago, whereas we know that 'white skin' on 'Europeans' is a mere 5,000 years old.
Removal of resistance: If you need someone to spell out for you what that means, I recommend spending a few years in basic education, because it means you're not so bright.
Unification: Anyway, the rest can see - there is 'no such thing as race', basically. The pretence that 'whiteness' is a 'cultural characteristic' is already disproved. How long before society catches up? If only, readers, you were all just a tad more scientific, eh?
Point 7: Britain's virulent racism. If Rory Stewart wants to convince us he's not onside with the racists, he should talk about this problem. Well Rory? Are you a fake? Or can you do as Corbyn does and stand up to white British racism? Did your 'military' career only teach you cowardice or can you be a public servant who protects us?
Thrust: In an article called "The Dark Side of Brexit: Britain's Ethnic Minorities Are Facing More and More Violence", Patrick Cockburn tells us: << Pictures of Daniel Ezzedine show him to be a fresh-faced 17-year-old with a warm cheerful smile. His parents are Lebanese but he was brought up in Germany where he had just left school. His teachers brought him to celebrate his graduation on a trip to Canterbury, where he was assaulted and beaten half to death by a gang of youths in what local people are convinced was a racist attack.
Direction of resistance: Indeed alarmingly Cockburn informs us: << But this understates the change for the worse that we are seeing. The Brexit vote promoted English national identity and questions about who is and who is not English - increasingly distinguished from being British - to the top of the political agenda, and this is not going away. One can see this in Canterbury, normally a liberally-minded and tolerant little city accustomed to large numbers of foreign visitors and students.
Removal of resistance: It goes on. 'White' Britain (that includes you Rory Stewart) needs to pay attention:
Unification: Let us all hope that Daniel Ezzedine comes through. And let us hope that some of these 'powerful' 'white' men like Rory Stewart learn how to be public servants, learn what a social contract is and learn to have dignity and humility. No more Roderick Spodes!!! Enough with your mad jingoism you dinosaurs. Rory Stewart for one so young to tout such dinosaurism, calling upon Churchill-Spode for votes - is just a very bad sign. Britain's future is bleak if it cannot break out of its centuries-old colonialist white racism! Come on Rory. You can do better.
Point 6: A preliminary list of free news media sources of assorted types across assorted political spectra.
Thrust: I think I should simply split them into 'corporate media' and 'journalistic media', although to say that about one or other entire source is not entirely unmisleading. Thus the division is really just a guideline, not a hard delineation. Many exceptions exist.
Direction of resistance: Corporate media:
Removal of resistance: Journalistic Media:
Unification: This grid point has just been created today on Monday 17th June. For those who cannot understand how this page works and have not seen any like them before, note that this particular 'grid point' will be expanded until its contents are sufficient, and then I'll begin on the next phase my new activity of rounding up the media.
Point 5: What is now Bangladesh was one of the richest parts of the world before the British arrived and deliberately destroyed its cotton industry. When India's Andaman islands were devastated by December's tsunami, who recalled that 80,000 political prisoners had been held in camps there in the early 20th-century, routinely experimented on by British army doctors? Perhaps it's not surprising that Hitler was an enthusiast, describing the British empire as an "inestimable factor of value", even if it had been acquired with "force and often brutality" (Milne).
Thrust: In 2015 Seumas Milne wrote << Speaking four months earlier at the British Museum, an Aladdin's cave of looted treasures from Britain's former colonies, Brown insisted: "We should be proud . . . of the empire" (2). Even Blair, who was prevailed upon to cut a similar line from a speech during his first successful election campaign in 1997, has never gone quite this far (3).
Direction of resistance: Milne points out: << It would be interesting to hear how Roberts - or Brown - balances such grotesque claims with the latest research on the huge scale of atrocities committed by British forces during the Mau Mau rebellion in colonial Kenya in the 1950s: the 320,000 Kikuyu held in concentration camps, the 1,090 hangings, the terrorisation of villages, electric shocks, beatings and mass rape documented in Caroline Elkins's book Britain's Gulag (8) - and well over 100,000 deaths. This was a time when British soldiers were paid five shillings (equal to $9 in today's money) for each Kikuyu male they killed, when they nailed the limbs of African guerrillas to crossroads posts. And when they were photographed holding severed heads of Malayan communist "terrorists" in another war that cost over 10,000 lives.
Removal of resistance: Milne draws attention to the key problem here: << There has been no serious attempt in Britain to face up to this record or the long-term impact of colonialism on the societies it ruled, let alone trials of elderly colonial administrators now in Surrey retirement homes. The British national school curriculum has more or less struck the empire and its crimes out of history. The standard modern world history textbook for 16-year-olds has chapter after chapter on the world wars, the cold war, British and US life, Stalin's terror and the monstrosities of Nazism - but scarcely a word on the British and other European empires which carved up most of the world, or the horrors they perpetrated.
Unification: Yet only today I saw a white male facebook user tell a non white facebook user that he lived in a 'third world shit-hole' and basically talked down to him on the basis of that.
Point 4: Rory Stewart cannot escape his seemingly racist colonialist upbringing, no matter how much of a Tory Corbyn they try to sell him as!
Thrust: In a comment, in the New Yorker I think, made by Rory Stewart, the Tory party's final desperate attempt to undo all the harm they have done - an attempt to merely copy Corbyn, to produce a leader whom Corbyn's fans may hate slightly less than the other racist corporate whores the Tories, Lib Dem and Blair-Mob have 'offered' us, Stewart joked that the Tory party has gone from Winston Churchill to Bertie Wooster - demonstrating that he, to begin with, has respect for the racist ignorant Churchill, which in this day and age is out of place except among throwbacks, racists and the far right (usually one and the same).
Direction of resistance: It also demonstrates that he is far too incapable of self-criticism or criticising his party.
Removal of resistance: In fact it has gone from RODERICK SPODE (and people like Churchill) to the drones club dining committee (minus Wooster - no one with a shred of actual integrity has been in any Tory cabinet in my lifetime).
Unification: That 'even' Stewart, touted as a 'former left wing' Tory who agrees in his words with what Julian Assange has told us - that 'on the ground' in places we bomb is very very different to what governments and media tell us, is so incapable of the self-critical just nature we all know Corbyn has ought to be another kick in the arse to the Tory psyche - you must understand, you party of sickos, that you have totally lost all capacity to realise what being decent is. Even your best attempt, old Rory Stewart there, comes away disastrously, proving he is as much a racist, deep down, as May, Johnson, Farage and Blair. Sorry Rory - you have to learn to distinguish between Spode and Wooster better - and Wooster and the general membership of the drones club. The very idea that any Tory leader we have had would lay down his life and marry Madeleine Bassett out of honour is a joke. An utter joke. That you are so self-deluded that you could make such a mistake, in public, despite your need for good 'p.r.' demonstrates you're not really pressed to be anti-racist and anti-stupidity. To brand Roderick Spode as Winston Churchill, as you have unconsciously done, Mr Stewart, means that you have failed the Shams test. You are NOT the tory Corbyn, my good man. When one comes I'll let the world know. You are not he, dear boy. You must learn to stop respecting men like Roderick Spode. I know you have been brought up to cheer on Britain and see it as better than the rest of the world. But perhaps you can rise above your primitive grooming/upbringing, lad?!!
Point 3: Some Saturday Night entertainment. An extract from a collection of stories I'm working on called "Bob and the Quantum Leap" or "Bob and The Spacetime Traveller". Not sure yet. That old uncertainty principle, eh?
Thrust: This particular story is called: "The time Bob saved the Bank of England."
Direction of resistance: << The time Bob saved the Bank of England.
Removal of resistance: Not sure where that fits into the main collection yet, it's just a scratching in my notes.
Unification: Should it end up in the final draft it may (or may not) be slightly edited/polished - potentially shortened/extended, etc. Fyi.
Point 2: Some theory: << Impatience is how the counterpunch will ultimately beat you. >>
Thrust: << Speed and agility are key for the counterpuncher, as well as a willingness to patiently chase down every ball to frustrate opponents. >>
Direction of resistance: The majority of people out there use repetition and force to 'make a point' and have no genuinely 'scientific' approach anywhere in what you can see of what they say and do.
Removal of resistance: Yet they will, due to something nowadays often referred to as "cognitive dissonnance", overlook this and fully expect you to treat actual gibberish as reason and logic.
Unification: This is why in such a society men like Donald Trump or Boris Johnson are even dignified as potential 'statesmen'. As Carlin has said, we get what we deserve. Garbage in, garbage out. Only a society which makes men like Boris and "The Donald" can get such men "in charge".
Point 1: Something 'new', and a tad more streamlining.
Thrust: TVhobo has been, mainly, a kind of note pad and archive for handling many of the key problematic arguments faced by today's governments, media and societies of living beings (or consumers, if they prefer to see themselves that way), enabling much organisation of ideas and pursuing of crucial exercises in gathering data as factual as possible about matters few 'official' and 'mainstream' sources are ready to even consider, let alone master the truth about any such thing.
Direction of resistance: So what's happening now is something a tiny bit different, and new.
Removal of resistance: What I intend to do is to produce a list of all the mainstream free sources of 'news', along with as extensive as possible a list of important blogs and other independent sources of news.
Unification: Then I will do media roundups as often as possible, as fully and swiftly as possible, but using the same format of grid points and urls in the references, so that from a utilitarian point of view TVhobo is basically in 'business as usual' mode, and will deliver to the public as fully as before.
Point 0: Back by popular demand.
Direction of resistance: TVhobo is back online.
Removal of resistance: The world is crying out for it.
Unification: And so it is here. Shortly, a brief recap of what TVhobo has done so far, since its conception in 2013.
