I'm learning Russian

Меня зовут бен и я говорю по русски or at least I hope I will soon. I've decided to start learning the Russian language. This is not going to be easy. Although I have learned foreign languages before it takes a lot of work to become fluent and continuous use of the language to maintain your fluency. Russian is a Balto-Slavic language, one of the branches of the Indo-European family, the same family that includes English; however it is very different to English even though it is related. This shouldn't be a surprise because all but a handful of the languages spoken on our continent are Indo-European. In terms of reading, I am well aware that some letters of the Latin script, which is where English gets its alphabet, are pronounced differently in other languages. For example in Welsh F is pronounced like the English V, and in Dutch J is pronounced like the English Y. However, Russian does not use the Latin script at all; it is written with what is called the "Cyrillic" script; I've written an example above and below. So I'm going to have to learn a completely different writing system. The online course I'm doing will take a long time, but there's no rush. I think I have a few years at least, even in a worst case scenario. My reasons for wanting to speak Russian are not just idle curiosity; they're highly pragmatic. A time might be approaching when I will have to go and live in Russia, perhaps with some members of my family, but alone if not. The political situation in Western Europe is truly dire and becoming more and more unstable. As the New World Order accelerates its "Great Work of the Ages" it is imposing radical authoritarian measures on western Europeans almost by the day. What will our lands be like in five years time, or ten years time? Better I hope. There are reasons to be optimistic, but still I need to consider alternatives. Eastern Europe is a very different place to the western half. The New World Order agenda through the 21st century seems to have become unstuck in many of the countries in the region, expecially Russia. The Russian Federation has evolved into a healthy node of freedom, to a certain extent at least, in this new multipolar world. In the 2030's and beyond, Western Europe may become a political and legal environment where it will be impossible for me to live. I might have to escape to Russia or face prison. I'm not exaggerating; I could end up as a conspiraspherical George Blake, see:! I don't think I'll be the only one though. If I'm going to go to Russia then it will be an advantage to have a working proficiency in the language first. Luckily I don't think there's a rush; I can learn a bit every day. This decision has filled me with sadness because I believe that my father and brother would never come with me. They will probably comply obediently with the nouvelle regime. However, I'm happy to say that my daughter is different though; she far more open-minded. With any luck our exile will only be a temporary one. I don't intend to die in the icy tundra like Blake did. I want to return one day to a free Europe and a free world. Гордость и достоинство носильщиков больниц. Остановите новый мировой порядок!

Tiktok UFO Crash

A young woman on Tiktok called "@allymurray222" has come across a strange object in a forest about which she made three videos. The object was at least a mile from anywhere. It is a disk-shaped object about a dozen feet across and appears to be made of a thin corrugated material. Its interior is hollow and filled with water and boulders, as if it came from a river or lake. It has been there for a while, I would say, and somebody has even drawn some graffiti on it. It has several holes in its top.
Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:
I doubt very much that this is a crashed UFO and in one of the videos the user admits that she does also. Some people in the comments say that it is a device for feeding water to wild animals. I don't know where "@allymurray222" lives, but she sounds Canadian. Some parts of Canada are experiencing a very hot and dry summer right now. Maybe the forestry service has decided to help the wildlife by giving them extra water. Even though this is probably not an extraterrestrial artefact, it's interesting that the concept is so popular nowadays that it sprang very easily into the head of a girl taking a walk in the woods. That's an encouraging sign.

Is Adam Curtis a Conservative?

Who cares?... This is kind of a follow-up to my previous article, see: In a video by Zero Books, Douglas Lain reviews the new documentary by Adam Curtis, Can't Get You Out of my Head. He refers to a talk by Curtis where he laments the loss of communal values and social libertarianism. He described himself as "neoconservative" and even apolitical. Curtis posits numerous critiques of society in a very negative sense. However, according to Lain, the Left needs this wakeup call because they are too naively optimistic. He praises Curtis' technical style, as do I. However, he sees Curtis as an idealist whereas he sees himself as a realist who regards the world in material terms. He adapts David Graeber's maxim into a Marxist equivalent in which our world is purely the product of our industrial system. He also cites one of his house's own titles, Democracy Under Siege by Frank Furedi... shameless plug... who makes a similar point to Curtis about how the battlefield of class struggle is not the economy, but the human mind (George Orwell also understood this profoundly). Lain however stands beside classical Marxism and differs from both Furedi and Curtis. Source: I didn't notice this at first, but I have come to realize that Curtis feels some sympathy for the subjects of his films who come to the conclusion that a life without some teleological drive is a life not worth living. In our society even the question of a transcendental meaning or mission to one's existence is considered quaint and childish. Somebody at my hospital once challenged me on my ideas about the other porters by saying: "Those men, they literally just couldn't give a fuck." I replied: "About what?" He responded: "Everything!... Anything! They just couldn't give a fuck." This man regarded my ideas as foolish and doomed to failure. Yet the people Curtis refers to, Sayyid Qutb, Leo Strauss, Tupac Shakur and many others, believed that humanity could not function without some higher objective of principle to their own existence and the universe at large. They all came from different countries with different backgrounds living in different times in history, but their philosophies all converged on the same spot. Were they right? Yes. This does not justify the sometimes manipulative, deceitful and violent way they chose to solve that problem, but at least they identified the problem.

Can't Get you Out of my Head- Part 6

See here for my review of Part 5: Part 6 is called: Are we the Pigeon or Are we the Dancer?. This is the final episode of Can't Get You Out of my Head. See here for Part 6: and:
In this two-hour concluding episode, we find out how the story ends, with the exception of Jiang Qing; we already know how it ended for her. Following World War II many prominent thinkers turned towards the idea of the individual rather than us being seen as a collective of any kind. Earlier episodes discussed Ayn Rand who was the most prominent of these pioneers. There was a photography exhibition in the 1950's called The Family of Man that presented five hundred and three photographs from sixty-three countries of ordinary people. The idea was that everybody could use the information in them information to build their own life story. Another person who questioned official reality was Tupac Shakur, the famous rapper. His mother Afeni Shakur was a leading figure in the Black Panther movement and had her own remarkable experience of the depth and normality of fraudulent life-hacking, as we've seen previously. The programme shows a video of Tupac in 1988 as a high schoolboy showing extraordinary awareness. Later on in his career, he wrote songs about the destructiveness of drug addiction. He thought that the aggression shown by street gangs in the USA could be transformed into something positive, a way of striking back against the oppressive political class. Yet this unlocked a terrible paradox in which his own success seemed to indicate that he had joined the establishment. However more and more people, especially black Americans, began to understand the "conspiracy theory" that crack cocaine was a biochemical psychological weapon being used by the CIA against American citizens. That is true actually and President Bill Clinton was involved. Mark Devlin questions the randomness of Tupac's death in a supposed drive by shooting in 1996, see: The narrative then moves to the Middle East. There in Saudi Arabia was born Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian. His ethnic origin meant that he was a second class citizen in the oil-soaked desert nation and as a result this led him to become angry. He saw the Saudi elite as just pretending to be Muslims while obsessed with money and materialism. Then, rather like Sayyid Qutb, he promoted Islamism to give people meaning to their lives. He became a jihadist and fought for the Taliban in Afghanistan. There he suffered a head wound in 1991 during the war to oust the post-Soviet socialist regime in Kabul. He was left with brain damage that affected his memory and ability to organize his thoughts. He was famously captured by the CIA and given "enhanced interrogation" by psychologists, including water boarding. This combined with his brain damage meant he just began giving out random statements, but they were taken seriously by the US government and adopted as policy because they exaggerated the public image of the terrorist threat which was used to give the state enormous power during the first decade of this century. He was oddly similar to Tupac Shakur in his idea that a life without meaning is a worthless life. It's not a new idea; in fact it can be found in that pivotal moment in history, the French Revolution. However, ironically, at the very moment Tupac and Zubaydah were rediscovering this idea; scientists in the West were denying not only the existence of life's meaning, but the existence of the very thing that understands it, the self. Dr Michael Gazzaniga is a psychiatrist who proposed curing severe epilepsy by severing the corpus callosum, the bridge between the two hemispheres of the brain. The strange effects this had led him to conclude that there is no single conscious self; just a series of selves organized by a "storyteller" which can be found in the left brain. As Curtis puts it: "Human consciousness was being sidelined". Gazzaniga's theory has been criticized by numerous other thinkers. This documentary is an excellent introduction to the subject, see: and:
There's an amusing clip in the programme of Google's headquarters in 1998, when the company was founded. Believe it or not, it was in a garage in the home of its founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. It's obviously moved upmarket since then. In a late '90's interview, Brin says that he wants to make the world a better place, just like in the photo exhibition fifty years earlier. Brin truly believed that his goal was to make information accessible to all completely freely and without censorship... the irony is not lost on me. Following the bursting of the Silicon Valley bubble in 2000, Google made a deal with the devil; sponsorship in exchange for their users' information being put into a database. In some instances this was just for relatively benign advertising purposes, like I have experienced myself, see:; but it was only a matter of time before intelligence services came knocking at their door. What used to be harmless browsing cookies became CCTV on our selves. Children's dolls, cleaning robots and even sex toys were hooked up to a system that allowed authorities to snoop on our lives, as Edward Snowden has warned us of, see: More computer experts rose from the woodpile like Geoffrey Hinton and BF Skinner. Hinton is the great-great-grandson of George Boole whom we met in episode one. Together they imagined a world in which society could be governed by computers called "neural nets", modelled on the human brain and be able to learn new things independently. Hinton called it "Vector-World" and Skinner wrote an allegorical novel about such a future utopia called Walden Two. In this system, humans were stripped of their humanity and would be regarded like pigeons pecking at lights to be rewarded with food in the classic Pavlovian response experiments. Hinton wrote a programme that could be used to calculate people's credit status. The USA hasn't developed that further, but another country has. In China an official called Bo Xilai came up with a similar idea to the other people Curtis has covered, including Leo Strauss, that obsessive hedonism and an obsession with meaningless pleasure leads to societal collapse. However the Chinese regime were already adopting the methods of Hinton and Skinner to create their "social credit" system. Bo Xilai was arrested on a charge of fraud and embezzlement after his businessparter Neil Haywood was mysteriously found dead. When he went to trial thousands of protesters assembled outside because it seemed obvious that Bo Xilai was framed while trying to expose the very crime he was accused of. Russia in the 1990's was a terrible place. The organized criminals called "oligarchs" had plundered the corpse of the Soviet Union and now were effectively running the country. In 2000 the submarine Kursk sank with the loss of all on board while Putin used the opportunity to set himself up as a nationalist populist, blaming the oligarchs for the tragedy, or so we're told. An opposition politician called Alexei Navalny emerged calling Putin's government "a party of crooks and thieves". Curtis' documentary presents a very cynical view of Vladimir Putin. However, like so many individuals in history, maybe he doesn't deserve the label of hatred that has been stuck onto him. These HPANWO Radio shows tell a different story about both Putin and Navalny, see: and:
Adam Curtis compares Hinton's Vector-World to conspiracy theories. In his view, people like me mimic perfectly the mindless building of connections between different pieces of unconnected information in the same way these computer programmes do. He demonstrates how Google's DeepDream program can find pictures of dogs in random patterns in the same way we build our own mental pictures of the world around us, even where no such picture exists objectively. This takes us back to episode one and the prank played by Kerry Thornley and Greg Hill. I suspect it has also inspired Umberto Eco's novel Foucault's Pendulum, about a fake conspiracy theory being generated by people's delusions reinforcing themselves in a feedback exaggeration spiral. Obviously I reject this notion because I believe many conspiracy theories to be factually correct; and indeed history has verified that position. One of the last things Tupac Shakur did before his suspicious death was a performance called "Killuminati" which was a repudiation of conspiratorial ideas. My complete objection to this can be found here: 2016 was a massive upset to the elite. See: and: Adam Curtis strangely rejects Neil Sanders' view that the whole thing was engineered by Cambridge Analytica. I had supposed up till then that the two were on the same side over this. Many social psychologists, or should I say mindbenders, began to reassess everything they had thought true and wonder if humans are harder to manipulate than they had previously thought. We are, and they ain't seen nothing yet! "Into this fragile structure came a catastrophe: Covid." says Adam Curtis. He predicts four futures and I disagree with his very premise about them all. He regards the supposed "election" of Joe Biden a "return to stability"... I don't need to repeat what I think of that. There may be an increase of populism and maybe another 2016-like situation; hope so! There may be more control and surveillance; and Curtis rightly fears the expansion of the social credit system into the rest of the world. On the other hand, there may be a third future that nobody has imagined yet that will be better than both of the other two options. I think that this fourth option will in some way be connected to the second, but Curtis is quite right to cite the late anthropologist and activist David Graeber with the quotation that launched the entire series of six episodes: "The ultimate hidden truth of the world is that it is something we make and could just as easily make differently". According to Curtis, both QAnon and Russiagate served the same purpose, to give the government an excuse why they can't find a solution the real social problems in this world. No, Q and Trump are not that at all. They are the solution. They are the means to end Illuminati rule on this planet forever in a way Adam Curtis doesn't grasp and whose foundation he has rejected to his discredit.

Paul Hellyer Dies

I'm sorry to report that The Rt. Hon. Paul Hellyer MP has left this world at the grand old age of ninety-eight. Apart from Sir Eric Gairy, Mr Hellyer was probably the most high profile political figure to speak out about UFO's. He was the Minister for the National Defence of Canada as well as holding several other cabinet posts. He was first elected to parliament in 1949 after a career as an engineer. In Word War II he built aircraft for the RCAF. He is the longest serving member of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, the most senior political chamber in the Canadian government. It was fairly late in life, just a few years ago in fact, that he came to the attention of the Truth movement because he began speaking publicly about UFO's. He had always been open to the idea though, in fact in 1967 he set up a UFO landing pad; but it was from 2005 that he became a very vocal spokesman for the subject. He famously stated: "UFO's are as real as the aircraft that fly above our heads!" He also began speaking at UFO conferences and announced that he was writing a book about UFO's. I don't know if he managed to finish it. He also never held back over his suspicions about 9/11 and the research done by Dr Judy Wood and Andrew Johnson, see: It is a rare gem of a person who has the ability and bravery to pass through the conformist filter of a statesman's life and reach a point where they can say things anathema to regular politics. He must have known what he and his family risked. His contribution will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace, Mr Hellyer.

New Travis Walton Hoax Claim

Everybody likes to be in the know. All the others are gullible, but we've got it sussed! In whatever way the UFO story eventually ends, most people want to be remembered as the one to say: "I was the one who was never taken in by any hoax!" This is to do with ego and there's nothing wrong with that. A little bit of ego is necessary and without it we have an incomplete personality. Ego is only a hindrance when we let it take over our minds, as in the case of a certain country doctor from North Carolina. It's about machismo, again something natural and not always bad if you keep it in control. Over eighty percent of UFOlogists are male, after all; and there's nothing wrong with that either, but this can generate a problem. Whenever the word goes out that something might be faked, there is a natural instinct to drop it and run like crazy, as if the mere mention of the possibility of fraud transforms it instantly into a ticking bomb. On top of this, you can always depend on the skeptics to laud automatically the "conveniently told confession story", see: For these reasons, hoax allegations are questioned far less rigorously than positive UFOlogical assertions.
I saw this very example play out again with the recent resurgence of attacks against Travis Walton. Such attacks are nothing new; in fact they've been going on in one form or another ever since the event happened. Travis' encounter and abduction is considered one of the most evidentially strong in all of history. On the 5th of November 1975 Travis, a lumberjack, was driving with his colleagues through a forest near Snowflake, Arizona USA when they saw a large multicoloured object near the road. Travis approached it for a better look and was struck by a beam of light. He collapsed to the ground while his colleagues abandoned him and drove away in terror. A few days later Travis reappeared at the side of a road near the town of Heber-Overgaard, a few miles from Travis' home. Since then a debate has raged continuously, in one form or another, about whether Travis' alien abduction was real or fake. The latest flow in that eternal tide comes allegedly from Mike Heston Rogers who was one of the witnesses in the car that night. However there is currently nothing on Mr Rogers' social media page about this. The same goes for Noria Hayakawa, a film maker who once produced a very good documentary about Area 51. He wrote an article about the latest scandal, but has now deleted it. Therefore, coming into this class late, it's difficult to obtain primary source information. Erika Lukes and Jeremy Rys, the "Alien Scientist" still have videos on their YouTube channels about it though. Apparently Mike and Travis had this get-rich-quick plan to make a new blockbuster movie explaining how they "fooled the world!" There was some kind of dispute over money and so Mike decided to spoil the reveal by going public over how Travis and he concocted the imaginary abduction story to win the National Inquirer's prize and get famous generally. There is supposedly a fire tower near the abduction site, an elevated platform taller than the surrounding trees, which they rigged up with coloured light to make it look like a UFO, to fool the other lumberjacks. However nobody is even certain exactly where the abduction site is. The witnesses don't want to reveal it. Anyway, the story continues with Travis then hiding in the fire tower for a few days before climbing down and walking to the phone boxes in Heber. Travis has denied this and explained in a phone-call to Jimmy Church of Fade to Black that this whole hullabaloo was a fabrication caused by Mike's fit of personal rage. Since then the two old friends have reconciled and Mike has withdrawn the allegation. To me it sounds very similar to the Larry Warren story with the forged evidence against him invented by a former friend with a grudge, see: Source: and: It's a sad fact though that in UFOlogy mud sticks, for the reasons I explain above. One of the motives I have in writing this article is because I have received a lot of correspondence about this matter. People want me to make a statement; well this is it. The tussle between different theories to explain the Travis Walton incident, to support Travis' report or debunk it, has been rambling on and on since the day it happened. The developments of the past month are not very original and will fade with the passing of time, just like the others have. I personally think Travis was telling the truth and so far no evidence has been presented that, in my view, overturns his testimony.

Stonehenge Tunnel Stopped

See here for essential background:
Some good news! A court has ruled that the so-called Stonehenge tunnel proposal is unlawful and has cancelled the plan. The judge, Mr Justice Holgate, specifically referred to the proposal's rejection of alternative routes as recommended by the UNESCO convention. He said the transport secretary did not take into account the damage done to the antiquities in terms of "each individual asset". The government are now considering their next move. Source: No doubt they will appeal against the ruling, but without proper grounds they won't get far. They may succeed by suggesting a new longer tunnel that is built further away from the monument, but that is exactly what campaigners were asking them to do anyway. Thank goodness that even in Clown World sometimes reason and fairness prevail.
