Crackpot of The Year: Richard Neville
and general raving loon Richard (lets call him "Dick") Neville
is back to blogging with his latest...erm....essay, titled "Maybe
Dr Evil Isn't Who You Think". It's a masterpiece of conspiracy
theory, ignorance, leftist paranoia and the best evidence yet that Dick's
brain has enjoyed way too much chemical engorgement.
The essay (something
about computer problems, Americans destroying the planet and our evil
Prime Minister) is too long to tackle in full. Not that it matters, as
these borderline-psychotic yelps are almost impossible to take out of
context (there isn't any). Here are my favourites from this edition of
One outcome of
todays Totalitarian Creep, is that imminent instrument of oppression,
Total Information Awareness. An upside is that the Pentagon is likely
to launch a lucrative sideline, Total Global Back-Up. Now that were
citizens-without-rights in a looming American Empire and privacy is
considered unpatriotic, we might at least get Total Data Protection.
On behalf of the readers,
I say: huh???
Why should non
US citizens be bullied by an uptight government in which they have no
say? A regime which aspires to rule the world is one to bemoan, not

the corn was left to the slaves and not even philosophers cared about
them. Slaves were non people. It was the same in the Roman empire, the
British Empire and now the American Empire.

enough, it still exists in a lot of those honest-to-goodness non-American
countries you never criticise.
of the Greeks centred on intellectual liberation. The innovations of
the West centre on weapons, toys and consumer products .
That would be because
we're already intellectually liberated, Dick. This gives us the
time to be productive and buy n' sell stuff.
Socrates would ask:
have touched these questions for all the caramel inside your head,
law, either moral or legal, is it okay for some nations to possess and
sell weapons of mass destruction, while others cannot?
would be my guess, Dick. It's the same reason the USA went to fight against
Hitler and not Churchill (though Richard would have argued they both had
naughty bombs and guns, so the English were as bad as the Nazis)
no longer possible to turn a blind eye to global warming, the major
impact of which will fall on the developing world. Australia and the

The right of people

nations' "greenhouse sins" go unpunished.

went home is what they did. They did pause for a few years to rebuild
the nations sworn to their destruction and the murder of their people.
They carbon-copied their own system of government and enforced it on
their most bitterly hated enemy, a people who have since given so much
back to the world as a result of this generosity. They left troops in
and sent huge sums of money to Europe to rebuild what they all knew
would eventually become trading partners, but also determined competitors.
Then they sent huge steel blades through their hard-earned fleets of
ships and airplanes and came home to get on with their lives in peace
and some of the islands they had visited had asked to remain under the
American flag as territories and protectorates, free to leave whenever
