Done. Been thinking about it forever but needed that added push. Glad I waited now! (And Oh Boy! Duck Dynasty! And Storage Wars! gag) Looking forward to season 4 of Warehouse 13. :)

Speaking of monsters, you won’t believe (well, maybe you actually will) what Greenwald told the Chaos Club. This is in German, and the Google translation is terrible. If “Time Online” reported on this, I can’t find it yet.

spiegel.de

“During his appearance before thousands of hackers have the investigative journalist ” crossed a line ,” says “Time Online” , “He has made common with the present hackers with the activists and civil libertarians He sees himself as one of them. . ” Glenn Greenwald as a freedom fighter who does not separate between journalism and activism.

“Greenwald replied on Twitter: The classification is wrong, who distinguish between journalists and activists who defined standards can not meet themselves. Juliane Leopold of “Time Online” countered that journalists check facts and inform , but do not put it on a page and even take action.

“Real journalists are activists “

Here’s another report from Deutchse Welle where he demands asylum for Snowden in Europe or South America.

Journalist and Edward Snowden associate Glenn Greenwald has told a major annual gathering of computer activists in Hamburg to continue fighting for online privacy, saying he did not expect meaningful political reforms.

it’s a fact that pure non-involved reporting is impossible, as what you report on you also change (this can be considered an illustration of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principal in action). But Glenn Greenwald is here going into the territory of Herbert Marcus and claiming ‘real journalists’ have to take action in favor of side inside of just reporting on an issue.

Hey Glenn, they tried out your ideas on this in the 60’s and it didn’t work out very well. Though William Ayers probably liked your speech, I think it was stupid and destructive.

Greenwald’s speech had nothing to do with Ayers or Marcuse.

The fact is, Greenwald is by nobody’s description, except his own, a journalist.

An activist by definition is ideological. Journalism, or reporting, strives to be objective, even though sometimes it leave an impression that it is not. I’ll say it for the millionth time: Opinion and ideology is absolutely not journalism. It is opinion and ideology, even if it appears in a newspaper.

I’m still reading the article, but this jumped out at me in Chapter 2:

Unlike other Libyans, Mr. Abu Khattala expressed no gratitude for the American role in the NATO air campaign that toppled Colonel Qaddafi. If NATO had not intervened, “God would have helped us,” he said, insisting, “We know the United States was working with both sides” and considering “splitting up the country.”

When NATO is more powerful than your god, you have a big problem.

I agree with everything but your first sentence. Greenwald is encouraging people to go down a path into the fever swamp that was cut by Macus long ago and later trod by Ayers. Greenwald emulates those men in the kind of approach he advocates.

Abu Khattala comes across as a man who never really fit in, in some ways a Jihadi version of Cool Hand Luke.

Super cool. Sometimes we think that we are so clever, and everybody in the past was barely able to bang two rocks together. This is a perfect example of something that was developed over an extended period of time by very knowledgeable people and crafted with a lot of skill and precision. I’m amazed sometimes looking at some antique furniture the incredible quality of the joints, all done without a single laser, computer or automated miller. Just good tools, time, talent and technique.

Marcuse was a leftist theorist and if you can show me in his writings where he advocates using journalism as a vehicle for activism, I’d appreciate it.

Ayers was a teacher and community organizer, not a journalist and a youthful “marxist” and anarchist when it served his purposes and that of the groups he was involved with.

Although both men had strong political views and wrote, books for the most part, neither considered himself a “journalist”. Both lived the university life as careers in a “publish or perish” atmosphere.

Greenwald is a non-practicing lawyer, libertarian and hustling opportunist who conflates journalism and activism as one and the same.

If you’re saying Greenwald advocates violence, well, Marcuse never actually advocated violence except as a defense; Ayers we know about as a young teacher who committed acts he later recanted and apologized for, including a condemnation of terrorism.

Actually, I still don’t know what you mean by that sentence, esp “fever swamp”. I mean, do you actually think that Marxism has a rat’s chance in hell of taking root in the US? That is fear, not reality.

BTW, one BIG caveat about Amazon Prime: We got it last summer to watch a TV series we had missed (for free with AP), and it renewed automatically - so keep that in mind. Also: not everything on Amazon streaming is free with Prime! There are a lot of shows and movies that still cost money (mainly, for us, things we want to watch, but go figure…) Best to check out the offerings before paying.

Well, this isn’t really an ad, it’s an endorsement of a product I like and recommend to LGF readers. I meant no offense, but I’ll re-code it so it isn’t visible to subscribers ASAP.

OK, you’ll no longer see the sticky posts. Hope that was fast enough service.
