    Unhappy Depressed

    So yesterday I found out that I was banned from the site Common Dreams (Common Dreams | Breaking News & Views for the Progressive Community) for promoting the ideals of a RBE. Never once did I make a derogatory comment nor did I ever attack anyone yet my account was removed and IP banned.

    And this was a "leftist" website.

    I've been promoting the movement on many websites, through Twitter, Disquss, Yahoo, and never was I banned for it. Anyone else ever have this problem?

    I guess that website like many others, is controlled by the Plutocracy, probably being used to divide the people. As long as there is only left and right and you can keep half of the people fighting the other half, then you can rule with very little problem.

    Anyways, it is depressing to know that we can be censored on a website that you would think would be more open to the idea of a RBE especially when it solves so many of the problems that they rage against. I don't come to these forums too often, spend most of my time working, promoting the movement and with my family but it's days like these that make me wish we could all just move to some other country and start a RBE there.

    Do you think we should make a website like theirs, with news articles and sections where people can post on each topic?

    Excellent idea.

    An umbrella website linking into all other closely or border line related websites or potential supporting websites, may increase the hit rate on any website created.

    The "art of war" puts science into war fare or social and economic change.

    In the "Art of War" to win battles. Many methods are discussed; such as:- Infiltration of existing organisations to undermine and or change their direction, providing and promoting alternative organisations etc.

    Never be depressed keep laughing at every thing and every one, no matter who they are, don't take life too seriously; it is meant to be fun. Never let the bastards grind you down.

    I got fed up with work 9 years ago, owed no one anything, went traveling, I wish I had done it sooner. Life is good, and I am still traveling.

    The so called "left" never goes after the root of the problem - the monetary system. until it happens they should be ignored.

    I was banned a couple times from a Beekeeping site for being too political.....talking about bee related stuff no one wanted to know about because I openly condemned capitalism as a major cause contributing to Honeybee/pollinator poor health.....a frustrating exercise in futility......Who knew there were Nazi Beekeepers????

    The so called Left, the Right, or the many in the middle haven't a clue where or what the Root is.

    Our monetary system is just a symptom...or branch....the Root goes much deeper....and considerably harder for people to see...or even discuss in a meaningful way.....even in this place...

    XIN LOI

    I recognized it was from that part of the world, or maybe some ones name, I guessed.

    С lÓ cuộc sống = Thats Life, according to google translate. I was going to go from Thailand to Burmah and Vietnam, but got side tracked, may be next time.

    If you get to Vietnam....stick to the Country side or if traveling in the cities, be aware of Russian criminals....they seem to have taken over much of the landscape, hotels, and such, especially coastal areas.....the Vietnamese however, are still wonderful people....but slowly becoming more capitalist as the years go by....

    'Xin Loi' was just something my fellow soldiers 'picked up' and would say to each other on occasion.....usually when trying to make sense out of nonsense.....

    I post on Alternet, Raw Story, Truthdig, Truthout ( all Disqus) all the time about RBE and haven't had any problems. I've been to Common Dreams, but not sure if I posted anything, but I probably did. My Disqus handle is Steve Lives if you want to see my posting history.
    I have also thought about a news website for RBEers, as each of these websites seem favor a particular political spectrum. It would be cool if we had one too. But don't put the zeitgeist name in it. Call it Common News or something like that. Zeitnews didn't go anywhere I think because of the name. The name makes it seem inclusive. It would be a huge and risky (money wise) undertaking so... Are there any rich, bored, Zeitgeist people?
