You know what's really useful is to learn how to meditate, meaning be taught by a serious teacher.  If you learn now, and properly, then you can lose everything they can stick you in jail take your money and clothes, beat you tattoo you inject you anything ... and still you will know what to do.

And you will succeed.

These beasts will not rest until they have ripped from you every piece of material.  You must conceal your light, and be patient.

Whilst you have time and opportunity learn what counts.

Forget about "this world" you will not be staying forever in any case.

Yep, too much hedonism, worship of Mammon, and heads buried in the sand. People have towed the line way too much and it will now come back to haunt them.

Not sure if already mentioned. But Denmark are about to murder 17 million Minks because they have a mutated version of Co-Vid 19. And apparently they say this has fed into the human population.

 

Now, this is totally disgusting. 

 

I also remember Judy Mikovits saying before that viruses can't go from animal to human. No idea if that is true or not.

 

Still f*cking B*stards!

Jonathan 'No Lord' Sacks is dead. Yes, the Chief Arsehole who, quite feebly, always used to try and paint any criticism of Israel as 'anti-semitic'. Hated by good Israelis and Palestinians alike, he fooled no one. Rot in hell, you vile scumbag.

Should we ban everything that makes dogs uncomfortable? For a few hours one evening one time a year I think they’ll survive. This mollycoddling of dogs and ‘BAN IT’ culture pisses me off

Bibles and newspapers ‘would be banned under new hate crime law’

Religious texts could be among the books to fall foul of proposed hate speech laws, churches warned

Books, bibles and newspapers would be seized and destroyed under the SNP’s plan to criminalise “inflammatory” publications, religious and secular organisations have warned.

An unlikely alliance of chapels, kirks, gurdwaras, humanists, secularists, artists, writers and journalists have united in condemnation of the Scottish government’s Hate Crime Bill.

Only Muslim Engagement and Development (MED), an Islamic rights lobby group, and the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (Scotjec) argued that the bill did not go far enough in the latest round of scrutiny by Holyrood’s justice committee.

The bill as drafted would empower police to seize “forfeited material” to “be disposed of in such manner as the court may direct”. The National Secular Society said in a submission to the committee before parliamentary scrutiny tomorrow that the “draconian and ultimately counterproductive” bill had “dangerously low thresholds for prosecution”.

Extending its defence of free expression to religious leaders who regard same-sex relationships “abominable” and punishable by death, the society said: “While we condemn any organisation, religious or secular, that uses such hateful language about LGBT+ people, we do not believe the correct response is to criminalise such speech.”

 

The Network of Sikh Organisations said the law would be “weaponised” by “offence archaeologists” digging through published material to have it censored. It said that JK Rowling, the Harry Potter author who has voiced concerns about allowing trans women into female changing rooms, would “face proceedings for her position on transgenderism”.

Scottish Pen, a writers’ collective, said that sensitive subjects would disappear from literature through self-censorship if writers “feel their work and communication is being monitored by the state”. Writers would be “held accountable for how their work is interpreted or misinterpreted by others” and could face seven years in prison, it added.

An open letter signed by the writers Chris Brookmyre and Val Mcdermid, the actors Rowan Atkinson and Elaine C Smith, the playwright Alan Bissett and the chief executives of the Humanist Society of Scotland and Humanists UK, said that the bill was in danger of “stifling freedom of expression, and the ability to articulate or criticise religious and other beliefs”.

The offence of possessing inflammatory material could extend to the Bible and other religious texts, according to the Bishops Conference of Scotland, the Free Church of Scotland and the Evangelical Alliance, which represents 4,000 evangelical churches in the UK.

The Free Church, a presbyterian denomination, said its critics “should be free to mock us, ridicule us and insult us”, adding that outspoken ministers would “need to have their lawyer on speed dial to check that their sermon each week does not fall foul of the offence of stirring up hatred”.

It said in its submission: “The right for a warrant to be issued to enter a premise and remove inflammatory material and ultimately destroy it is deeply worrying to us as it could lead to certain books and publications essentially being banned.

“As books are confiscated and destroyed, precedents would develop that would amount to a list of banned books . . . and as Christians we are deeply concerned that the Bible could fall foul of this offence.”

The Bishops Conference, which represents Catholic bishops, said that priests could face prosecution for saying that “a man cannot become a woman”.

“The growth of what some describe as the cancel culture — hunting down those who disagree with prominent orthodoxies with the intention to expunge the non-compliant from public discourse and with callous disregard for their livelihoods is deeply concerning,” it said. “We risk becoming an intolerant, illiberal society.”

The Scottish Newspaper Society said that journalists would face “vexatious” legal actions that could ruin their careers, pointing out that 57 of the 67 journalists accused of phone hacking were cleared in court after years of public condemnation.

The proposal to destroy publications had “echoes of darker times”, alluding to book burning by past authoritarian regimes such as the Nazis, it said. “It would presumably cover back copies of newspapers and magazines . . . while we accept the purpose of this legislation is not to subject someone like JK Rowling or legitimate media organisations to police investigations for expressing, publishing or broadcasting controversial opinions, but we are in little doubt that would be the consequence.”

Humza Yousaf, the Scottish justice secretary, defended his plan to criminalise “insults” last month. He said it would apply only to racist comments and that religious, homophobic, transphobic and ageist abuse would be “aggravators” for other crimes.

Legal experts said that this could create a “hierarchy” of abuse, and called for the section to be removed. However, MED and Scojec said it could be fixed by extending the law to criminalise abuse of religion as well.

Scojec said that Jews were already an ethnic minority, as were Sikhs, and could be defended under plans to criminalise racist insults. However, it said that other religions should be afforded similar protections.

MED said that insults could be “equally detrimental to the lives of victims as physical violence” and must be prosecuted.

Spreading anti-vaxx myths 'should be made a criminal offence'

Royal Society and British Academy say public should be 'inoculated' against misinformation amid fears over Covid jab take-up

It should be made a criminal offence to spread anti-vaxx myths and the public should report offenders, the Royal Society and British Academy have said amid concerns that baseless fears over a coronavirus vaccine will damage uptake

A rapid review on Covid-19 Vaccine Deployment has called for people to be "inoculated" against misinformation, which can spread rapidly on social media.

Several countries already have laws against disseminating information that is harmful to public health, and Singapore has recently carried out four prosecutions for coronavirus offences under its Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA).

Under the same legislation, companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter are also legally required to correct or remove misinformation. 

Professor Melinda Mills, the director of the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science at the University of Oxford and the lead author of the review, said it was critical to address genuine concerns about the vaccine while preventing misleading facts from spreading on the internet.

"This information can be really damaging, and it's clever how they spread it through memes and memorable things," she said. "These groups are very skilled. They feed on fear, that little grain of truth, and they amplify it.

"It's not very interesting when the Government produces passive web pages that say vaccinations are safe. The anti-vaxxers turn everything into a show – they put out things that are engaging, that are visual to their members. 

"Social media channels try to capture this misinformation, but they can't get everything and so it’s important that the public can spot it so that they don't share it. Most people aren't bad, they just don't realise they are sharing a whole load of misinformation."

Experts are concerned that uptake for a Covid vaccine will fall short unless more is done to address misconceptions on social media. Recent research has shown that around 36 per cent of people in Britain say they are either uncertain or very unlikely to be vaccinated against the virus. 

Prof Mills added: "There are real knowledge voids. The public thinks it takes decades to make a vaccine, so it has to be communicated that it is safe. There are always going to be side-effects, and that has to be acknowledged too.

"Everyone is concerned about this rushed vaccine, so let's talk about it. There needs to be a dialogue, and that will work better at a local level."

Hmm, sounds like the main TV news channels to me, in essence, but they are hardly 'very skilled' are they.

New EU budget dismissed as ‘Soros Plan’ by Hungarian govt spokesperson
https://www.rt.com/news/506320-hungary-eu-budget-criticism-soros/

good to see there is a bit of fight left in parts of Europe. They haven't been brainwashed with all the progressive crap over there so much like here. I don't know any Hungarians but I know a few Polish. Try going to a school over there and telling the parents you're bringing in a transgender to read a story to their five year old kids and teach them about transgenderism or that they have to accept mass immigration or it's racist.

That's not going to go so well :classic_smile:

How can anyone be a bigger stooge than that shithead interviewer Evan Davis? Sacks comes up with some ridiculous bullshit about 'talking to some little kids at school', who are probably the only people he is able to fool in life, and Davis just swallows it! Ha ha ha. Criticising the actions of a state is NOT denying the existence of a state. I am thoroughly shocked that this lunatic was able to invade any of our schools in the first place. Yikes!

 

The way things are now, I think that literally everyone and myself included, bar the Zionists scumbags of course, are actually in favour of a two state solution. So, how did this lunatic ever get to spread his vile rhetoric on the BBC in the first place? A rhetorical question I know.

 

P.S. I found it kind of apt that he popped his clogs right at a time when the mass media were banging on about a 'mutating virus'.

Armed nutter on the Loose

Armed police fire rubber bullets to take down 'gunman' who was 'aiming RIFLE at children' near village school and shouting 'I'm the son of David Icke'

Students were locked in a school this afternoon as police swooped on the village of Quorn in Leicestershire, amid reports of a man armed with what appears to be a rifle.
