Is anything less persuasive than this - meeting at Davos appointing a 25-man commission, filled with all kinds of the West's covert operators, to examine the web in the wake of Snowden's revelations - what would never have seen the light of day except for the Web!

My favorite appointee is Joseph Nye, the former head of the Kennedy School, and author of Nuclear Politics, the architect of ending the Cold War with a non-nuclear conclusion, and was triggered at Olof Palme's expense.

Who is your favorite, and what disaster will he trigger?.

Got the title of Nye' work to end the Cold War without a nuclear conflagration wrong: it's Nuclear Ethics.

It said that if the West could somehow degrade the Soviet nuclear deterrent without a nuclear war, it would be permssible - what Navy Secretary John Lehman and CNO Admiral James Watkins attempted after Palme was assassinated, and would have triggered a surprise nuclear one because of all the unknown nuclear-armed SS-23 missiles Moscow had under the command of hawk Marshal Nikolai Ogarkov if it had not been for all the spying by Moscow which was not taken by surprise.

This commission is the brain-child of Zbig Brezezinski. Guess Bildt got the idea from his son Mark, the US Ambassador to Sweden

Pappy Zbig has decried the role of people through communication, especially the internet, making governance more difficult. He's called it the Great Global Awakening, citing that it used to be easier to control a million people rather than kill them, but now it has become the reverse.

Of course, rather than trying to clamp down on the internet, it might be more productive to do more for what their subjects want rather than follow Bilderberg's agenda.

It's called democracy! laugh.gif
