Hvis du får stjålet noget i dit hjem, og du ikke har låst din dør, så kaldes det ‘simpelt tyveri’, og dækkes ikke af din forsikring fordi - så er man for dum.

Hvis du anbringer hele din opsparing i tegnebogen, og placerer den i et åbent vindue, i gadeplan, i en meget befærdet gade, så er du…

At times I almost dream I too have spent a life the sages’ way, And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-reliance Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer For one more chance went up so earnest, so Instinct with better light let in by death, That life was blotted out—not so completely But scattered wrecks enough of it remain, Dim memories, as now, when once more seems The goal in sight again.
4x05; The Fields Where I Died

Credit where credit is due: these words are from Paracelsus, a verse monodrama in five acts by the English poet Robert Browning, first published in 1835. Jeff was surprised when we watched this episode that the writers chose this poem (and another by fellow Brit Percy Bysshe Shelley) rather than something connected to the Civil War, given the focus of the episode. The subject of the poem, though, is one that I find very fitting for The X-Files, if not for this episode in particular.

The historical Paracelsus was a sixteenth century Swiss physician, scientist, astrologer, occultist, and mystic, and the inventor of toxicology. He was far ahead of his time in his insistence on using observations of nature as a basis for medical practices, and in recognizing that some illnesses had psychological roots; he also believed that dreams had meaning and considered their interpretation a great art. He is thus a clear intellectual and philosophical ancestor of both Mulder and Scully.

Hvorfor ikke bare give alle borgere et halsbånd eller en chip der i realtid kan kontrollere indholdet af ens blod og tanker.

Tanker kan jo også være farlige. Man kan begynde at påvirke de andre slaver til ulydighed eller anden samfundsundergravende virksomhed. 

Så kunne man automatisk blive indkaldt til workshop i Adfærds- og Tankeministeriet for at komme på ret køl igen. Evt. samle afvigere i nogle lejre så det koster mindre i udgifter.

Samme chip kunne måske dosere adfærdskontrollerende stoffer eller påvirke ens tankestrøm så det minimeres. Kan problemet ikke rettes deaktiveres værten.

Facebook har afpubliseret FB-siderne Frihedsaktivisten, Vild Med Borgen og Støt Lars’ Kamp mod DR Licens. 

Det fortæller den tidligere betjent, og nu aktivist, Lars Andersen på Facebook:

Staten vil helst at du bare adlyder og elsker staten. Du må gerne være sur over dens totalitære tiltag, bare du tier stille. Udstiller du dem, udøver du civil ulydighed eller opfordrer til det, så skal staten nok forsøge at få fjernet dine ytringer.

Glæder mig til at læse debatter fra Folkemødet på Bornholm hvor frihedselskende og demokratiske(ja, de to er meget selvmodsigende) jo selvfølgelig diskuterer dette. Statsfinancererede eller mediestøttede medier,  også kaldet “vagthunde”, vil selvfølge ikke tie sådanne historier ihjel. 

Du kan finde Frihedsaktivisten på twitter @frihedsaktivist og på http://frihedsaktivisten.com og http://frihedsaktivisten.dk. Sidstnævnte er flyttet til udlandske webhost da myndighederne bad Surftown om at lukke dem.
