This is beyon cool!
I hear that Denis fella is an animal. This is obviously a serious challenge if he is on board. I believe Mike Horn was busy when the people were being picked.
Supposedly Denis is the bravest, strongest most intense athlete to leave Ireland in recent times. its fitting that such a beast is being lined up for such an adventure. To Paul and co getting Denis on board is an inspirational feat. Good Luck.
Superb! I am so proud of these people and for you for making this film. Best news in the US in ages!
What Mark C said – an amazing act of courage and thank you for making this video. Peace!
Jan, fantastic job! Thanks so much. I hope it gets shared far and wide. Also, thanks for keeping the music level down… I find it so distracting when levels are higher than where you have them.. :o)
Grade: A+ ! Real McCoy 'hope' for 'change' is here, via these oh so brave and determined truthtellers. This terrific video needs to be shown far and wide, over and over – best protection for our hero and heroine journalists/whistleblowers/activists.
man this light black on a white back ground
It’s early in the morning so this is mltosy a jumble of thoughts rather than a cohesive opinion.-Throughout the whole diplomatic links, I keep thinking of how very In The Loop’ it all seems. However, Assange’s theories both seem to support and reject the movie’s depiction of politics.-A lot of contemporary philosophy/theory discusses how capable capitalism has become at absorbing protest, and what this means for art and intellectualism that find itself utterly toothless. A friend in our philosophy department is working on something like post-Marxism, trying to figure out what the next radicalism, protest, and/or social structuring can look like since Marxism, as such, is clearly no longer viable (if it ever was). I wonder if Assange is on to something viable or if capitalism will just find a way to absorb this protest as well.-Lastly, I find it fascinating that these links come from inside and are given then given to Assange. Um, guess that’s all I have to say about that now.Would love email or comments with further discussion! (Perhaps I will re-read when I am less foggy too.)
The video by Jan Hargrave is indeed an exelelcnt example of the fallacy that body language’ can be interpreted in such a way that it tells us something’ about someone. There is no scientific validity to the interpretation of non-verbal behaviour. It is and can only be the projection of the observer’s subjective view of the world onto the person being observed. While there may be claims for scientific validity there are always other studies that contradict those claims, simply because there can be no consistency to the meaning’ of a particular physical stance or movement or posture or, in Jan’s video hand position’. She is simply projecting a subjective symbolic interpretation on a body movement, just as dream interpreters project possible symbolisms onto the features of a dream, tea-leaf readers project symbolism onto the position of tea leaves in an upturned saucer. In all cases the interpreter creates the meaning, it is not present before the creation and so is not factual. Aldert Vrij wrote an exelelcnt review into whether we can tell if someone is lying or telling the truth called Detecting Lies and Deceit’. In the book he reviews a range of studies of the use of non-verbal behaviour in the detection of lies the conclusions are inconclusive many studies contradict other’s findings and he notes with concern that some Police officers and others dealing with sensitive situations claim to be able to tell when someone is lying’ from interpreting body language. The research proves otherwise that there are not consistent non-verbal behaviours shown by people who lie ..or by those who tell the truth. To assign such credibility to this non-science that it is used in the selection of jurors is staggering not least because of its subjectivity but because of the gullability of the legal professionals who commission it.
AWESOME…not to shout but really enjoyed. keep on keeping on…
