Anaheim, California – Apparent state of emergency?

Apparently Anaheim in California is in a state of emergency. We have supposed reports, photo’s and video’s of army in the streets, police brutality and violation of residents. I have found reports on the situation from the Huffington Post and some video footage from the CNN with no actual reporting. But from what I gather it bares a striking resemblance to England last year.

The report’s and video’s have been coming through in dribs and drabs and even my attempt at googling the situation for any official reports on how it has escalated to military presence on the streets of the ‘Land of the Free’ have brought me nothing other than all the information I need on the Anaheim Salvation Army.

Orwellian drama based in a future that although may be terrifying to think of, it doesn’t seem that unrealistic given the nature of our current progression.

The new RSA Animate: The Power of Networks

There’s been a wee trailer for this on the RSA’s Youtube channel for  while now.

I anticipate these as much as a new film and it has finally arrived.

And a thanks to Bella Caledonia for the heads up.

Wait, can’t we just keep eating?

Apparently not. Between global food shortagesgenetically modified food, destruction of the environment, and pesticides galore, its hardly surprising that many experts believe we are up shit creek. (That wasn’t a direct quote)

There are many answers circulating, some involving further human intervention but one in particular seems to provide answers on most if not all levels.

The ‘movement’ is called permaculture.

Knowing and thinking you know

In this case I am thinking about the internet.

That Kony video popped out a few weeks ago creating a storm. I have to say I re-posted it. It was interesting, empowering and above all it just seemed right. It was hard to overlook the whole Hollywood good guy, bad guy, hey-ho America-ness of it all, but then like i said, it just seemed right.

Then it received massive amounts of criticism and other questions were being asked and quite rightly. What are the Ugandan military track records on human rights? Why are the appeals going out to American politicians and not African?  I’m sure you can find the rest on a lot of sites.

But… this does call into question the use of the internet. Why am I using it to repost things I deem relevant and am I right in doing so? What criticism would Sol Revo Evo get if it got any more than 5 views per post. And whats the point in even posting if only 5 people view it?

I may as well give up. That was a lie. I do this ’cause it’s fun and I want people to know what I know. The same reason I browse the internet to know what they know. Then we can all make the best and informed decision.

Here’s a little video stimulate answers to some of those questions…
