You are invited to share and pen your ideas, views or opinions that will facilitate/assist our country back to democracy. All positive and/or negative ideas and comments to steer us back to the road of democracy are welcome.

Whichever way one looks at our current situation back home, democracy has been completely raped. The rape of democracy in Fiji is a virtual degradation of the populus of Fiji. Their human rights are being deprived:

1. the right to decide their government;
2. who they want to represent them;
3. their right to free assembly;
4. free protest;
5. free to organise into groups so that they can talk about what is pertinent to their daily lives;
6. protest on issues they do not agree with....with no fear of intimidation from anybody.

With this military regime in place, the concept of freedom per the Constitution is a total myth!

And, we, the people of Fiji need to come together and be vehement about our total disagreement with the military regime. So give us liberty or death! The reality of the issue is that democracy in Fiji has been raped...from top to bottom...left to right....inside and out and vice versa!

Here we have a military regime that talks about freedom to the people and yet the very same military regime randomly arrest people, torture them, inflict unnecessary harrassment and emotional stress to those that seem a threat to them. The military regime talks about racial unity.......the communal concept of togetherness and yet Fiji is far more racially divided today than it ever was.

The so-called advisors, viz-a-viz, John Samy, these are rejects from their adopted countries and yet they are being rewarded with exuberant amount(s) of money by these rogue military regime who have no idea what they are doing. Lying to the international community does not augur well with this interim government and yet the interim Prime Minister continuously talks with a forked tongue when addressing international issues. The ministers talk about internal securities as if Fiji is going to be invaded.

All around it is clearly seen that the economy is in tatters and the Constitution is just a useless piece of paper. The rule of law is as what the military regime wants it to be.

The above are just some of my views (from a pro-democracy viewpoint). But, do not let that deter you from penning your comments if you share otherwise.

So, let us come together and voice our views/comments, whether they be for or against the military regime and have a very healthy discussion here so that in the end we can factually understand what our role is, what we need to do and how we can come up with ideas to help restore democracy back in our beloved Fiji!

Please feel free to write what you like or dislike about the military regime. Be sincere and honest about your thoughts, without getting personal or spiteful.

Kindly note, this "topic" will expire as soon as we have an election.

If The Australian Government Don't Take The Lowly Institute Seriously, Why Should We ?

anyway, its now a propoganda piece over here - the radio news on every station over the last 24 hours has had this Lowy Institute 66% percent support" story running non stop - its the first news item on all the radio stations over here. looks like the Ministry of Information has gone into overdrive on this one.

problem with propoganda though is that the outcomes don't create anything viable and/or sustainable for development because in its essence propoganda is about "mind control" i.e manipulation. NON TRANSPARENCY. its just a variation on violence - thats the whole idea. its no longer an attempt to subdue and control people by violence, but by information manipulation - though in the end, as in the case of violence it never creates any sustainable foundation for development because the people's choices and consent are not of their own deliberate and informed "freewill" - its manufactured consent via NON TRANSPARENT MEANS of information control and manipulation.

how all these manipulations will develop and create longterm sustanable outcomes for Fiji ? it won't. we're just running around in the same old coup and misinformation and disinformation cycles which we have been running around in over the last two decades. no change. and its showing - our development indices just keep going down and down and down. a race to the bottom of the barrel with all the conmen and fraudsters and bullshyte artists in charge of the disinformation and misinformation that sets the parameters for regression and phucking this country up

this one takes the cake....eh?

Permanent Secretary for Information reckons FB is more popular then Gillard !

tsk tsk tsk

Gillard runs a country which is booming economically and is not at the EU begging for $EU 300 million - she won her PM's position through free and fair elections, she did not appropriate her position at the barrel of an M16 and she presides over a country where she doesn't need a PER to run the country because she governs with the consent of her people and doesn't need a company of the Australian Defence Forces stationed around her house 24/7 because she is worried about the ADF mutinying against her - nor does she travel around with an entourage of heavily armed bodyguards in that regard either.

she didn't chase Parliamentarians out of the senate in Canberra and disolve it - she didn't kick the Australian Judges out and trash the Australian Court system.

she doesn't send out the ADF to bytch slap Unionists around ala Felix Anthony, and intimidate them 

she doesn't need an Essential Industries Decree to control Australian Unions and workers 

she doesn't write Decree's curtailing the Courts against questioning any of her Govt's administrative decisions/ actions

she doesn't give Australian Govt jobs and contracts to her brother in law, or brother or fiance/partner or Aunty

and she doesn't preside over an economy where nobody wants to invest because they don;t trust the Govt or its systems - investment in Australia is booming.

and she doesn't go around having her own people write up dodgy polls, ala Tebbutt Research, and flogging it off as "justification" for her rule - because her rule (as does the rule of every other Prime Minister and Federal Govt in Australia since the formation of their Federal Union) doesn't depend on flawed and fundamentally suspect and dodgy pollsters and dodgy polls, but on the CREDIBLE VOTE of every FULLY INFORMED Australian citizen which is ballotted at free and fully TRANSPARENT and fair elections conducted every three years.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama is more popular than the Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard says Fiji’s Permanent Secretary for Information Sharon Smith-Johns.

Referring to the recent opinion poll carried out by the Australian Lowy Institute, Smith-Johns said the poll shows the difference in the leadership quality between Commodore Bainimarama and Gillard.

“With a 66 per cent approval rating Commodore Bainimarama is almost three times more popular with the people of Fiji than Gillard is with the people of Australia,” she said.

Smith-Johns said the poll has proven that the Fijian government is committed to the policies of good governance and has courage to do what is right for the people, if Fiji is to make progress.

“The citizens of Fiji approve Commodore Bainimarama and the government by a huge margin.  So if our own people think we're doing a good job and that's all that matters and it’s thanks to the Australians themselves in the form of the Lowy Institute,” she said.

She said this by no means suggest there isn’t still a massive amount of work to be done prior to elections in 2014.

“We have a long way to go, however it certainly indicates that the reforms are reaching the people and they approve of the direction the Bainimarama government is taking them,” Smith-Johns said.

Meanwhile poll was conducted on the main island of Viti Levu in August and polled 1,032 people.

The poll report revealed Commodore Bainimarama has good support from 66 per cent of the people polled, and 65 per cent believe Fiji is heading in the right direction.

An overwhelming 95 per cent of people support the right to vote in a free election, and around half the people felt the government is doing a good job making progress to elections.

incredible isn't it ?

i've been reading Goebells diaries over the last two weeks - his mind and his reasonings - and his emphasis on propoganda and the theoretical underpinnings of that philosophy. its an interesting look into the mind of one of the worlds greatest propogandists - if you think about it, he did something which was phenomenal at that time - took mind control over the whole of Germany - and the Germans have never been dunces - they are one of the most intelligent and advanced nations and societies on earth - all the great philosphers and musicians and academics and scientists - and all the great institutions of learning with their hundreds of years of intellectual excellence was simply no match for Goebell's bullshyte.

the tail ended up wagging the dog

super industrial Germany and all her greatest thinkers and intellectuals and academics and her liberal advances in everything from engineering to medicine to law to music to art all taken over by this thug from the beer halls of Munich and his propoganda. that Teutonic and proud martial race of free thinkers and great intellectuals fallen for the sweet talking sound bytes of a beer hall thug.

its crazy when you think about

what makes human societies fall for Lucifers tongue ?

i mean this is all deciet. pure and simple. propoganda, call it what you will.....the essence is deceit.

Army Yanks ‘Voice-To-Skull Devices’ Site

http://www.wired.com/dang...2008/05/army-removes-pa/

 

The Army’s very strange webpage on "Voice-to-Skull" weapons has been removed. It was strange it was there, and it’s even stranger it’s gone. If you Google it, you’ll see the entry for "Voice-to-Skull device," but, if you click on the website, the link is dead.
http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/photos/uncategorized/2008/05/09/hypno2s.gif

The entry, still available on the Federation of American Scientists‘ website reads:

onlethal weapon which includes (1) a neuro-electromagnetic device which uses microwave transmission of sound into the skull of persons or animals by way of pulse-modulated microwave radiation; and (2) a silent sound device which can transmit sound into the skull of person or animals. NOTE: The sound modulation may be voice or audio subliminal messages. One application of V2K is use as an electronic scarecrow to frighten birds in the vicinity of airports.

The U.K.-based group Christians Against Mental Slavery first noted the change (they also have a permanent screenshot of the page). A representative of the group tells me they contacted the Webmaster, who would only tell them the entry was "permanently removed."

The image above is one person’s self-styled depiction of how a "voice-to-skull" weapon might work.

But that would dove tail into Jack's post

This goes back into mass media and effects of Television on the mind.

Your Brain Waves Change When You Watch TV -Low Alpha Waves Can Lead to "Mind Fog"

If you experience "mind fog" after watching television, you are not alone. Studies have shown that watching television induces low alpha waves in the human brain. Alpha waves are brainwaves between 8 to 12 HZ. and are commonly associated with relaxed meditative states as well as brain states associated with suggestibility.

While Alpha waves achieved through meditation are beneficial (they promote relaxation and insight), too much time spent in the low Alpha wave state caused by TV can cause unfocussed daydreaming and inability to concentrate. Researchers have said that watching television is similar to staring at a blank wall for several hours..

I enjoy watching television on occasion, and this article is not meant to suggest that people should never watch TV. However, it is only fair that people understand what happens to the brain each time it is exposed to television.

In an experiment in 1969, Herbert Krugman monitored a person through many trials and found that in less than one minute of television viewing, the person's brainwaves switched from Beta waves-- brainwaves associated with active, logical thought-- to primarily Alpha waves. When the subject stopped watching television and began reading a magazine, the brainwaves reverted to Beta waves.

One thing this indicates is that most parts of the brain, parts responsible for logical thought, tune out during television viewing. The impact of television viewing on one person's brain state is obviously not enough to conclude that the same consequences apply to everyone; however, research involving many others, completed in the years following Krugman's experiment, has repeatedly shown that watching television produces brainwaves in the low Alpha range

Advertisers have known about this for a long time and they know how to take advantage of this passive, suggestible, brain state of the TV viewer. There is no need for an advertiser to use subliminal messages. The brain is already in a receptive state, ready to absorb suggestions, within just a few seconds of the television being turned on. All advertisers have to do is flash a brand across the screen, and then attempt to make the viewer associate the product with something positive.

Implications for those with ADD and ADHD:

Most people would benefit from cutting television time; in addition, research has shown that persons with ADD or ADHD tend to have too much Alpha, Theta, and Delta wave activity and, therefore, would benefit significantly from a reduction in TV. Television certainly contributes to a reduced ability to concentrate for anyone, but especially those who already have an overabundance of Alpha waves.

Better alternatives:

Reading (a book or magazine, for instance-- not televised text. It is the radiant light from a television set that is believed to induce the slower brainwaves ) and writing both require higher brain wave states. If you want to keep your brain focused and your attention strong, it is a good idea to cut your television time. Sitting quietly for a few minutes, painting, singing, reading, or going for a walk, are better for you in all ways.

Complicit in the destruction of Indigenous Fijian Culture the MASS MEDIA has been found guilty of abetting treason, sedition, murder, genocide and other high crimes.The gap between rhetoric and reality in Fijian life is so large that no one believes what they are hearing from the hostile elites that dominate public discourse.

No Amount of Propaganda can gloss over the realities now unfolding.

The Lowy Institute from Australia findings just confirms that everything about Fijian Politics, Economy, Statistics, Propaganda, etc, etc are determined by outside forces.

Freedomfighter permalink

Just shows what a nuthead Smith Johns is by comparing the two as differences are so stark: one is elected, other isn’t; female is educated while other is an uneducated hooligan, one is voted in by the people, the other seized power through guns. That’s on the first level.

Secondly, we need to question the method used in arriving at the conclusions: sample- how did they select the sample? How many took part in the poll? Ethnic distribution- Fijians, Indians, Chinese, etc? Gender distribution? How many males/females from each ethnic group? How was the poll conducted? Phone? Text? Face-face? In what language? English or Fijian/Hindi/Chinese? Location of sample – urban, rural, villages? settlements? Two things need to be determined in an opinion poll- the reliability of the method used and sample. Otherwise the results are invalid, unreliable and fails the test of a sound research! Lastly, who did the polling? what is their qualification? This will go back to Teebutt researchers- are they qualified researchers?

So I wonder where Sao got his 99.8%?

Ting Tong got it right – where is the Lowy Institute’s responsibility in this? It is a bit like polling Libyans before Ghaddafi’s fall: pointless.

I bet that the researchers are probably are having daily personal correspondence with the Ministry of Propaganda – like the same relationship that Michael Fields seems to have. Hypocrisy.

@Sireli. Soon Sharon the Delhi Solution will be the only  options for people to demonstrate their frustration on the volumes of lies that's happening in the country.

We the People have very limited choices. These are the rules, of their choosing, not ours. But they are the reality of a situation as harsh as it is immutable. IT IS WAR. Only a fool and a weakling would ask for it to be otherwise.
