" The U.N.'s top human-rights body approved a proposal by Muslims nations Thursday urging passage of laws around the world to protect religion from criticism..."

 :lulz: wow, that would be intense.

one part of me hopes that doesn't pass. Because--

"It is individuals who have rights and not religions," Canadian diplomat Terry Cormier said.

--here in the US, ALL SORTS of problems were created by giving corporations legal personhood. Religious egregrores would be so much more powerful / dangerous if they were afforded rights.

But another part of me hopes this passes, for the lulz

because as soon as it's illegal to make fun of religion,
it's time to show people how ridiculous Discordia can actually be.

the kicker would be it being illegal to make fun of us

Article VI resolutions emanating from the United Nations General Assembly carry no coercive power to be passed.  Its the political equivalent of staging a protest - though given some of the screaming I've heard about this you'd think the UN was like some sort of mecha-Hitler, instead of a talking shop for the world's minor powers.

My piece can be called "Get Ready for the Wierdness" or something like that.  I'm not too worried.

The coolest thing about LARPing is "lightning bolt lightning bolt lightning bolt" and overweight women dressing like exotic and sexually attractive adventurers.

has spent a lot of time on Google Video researching this topic.

The files are huge, suggesting they are direct scans and not OCR'd or otherwise improved. Quality may therefore be suspect.

Also of interest to anyone who likes the following topics: the occult, Lovecraftian horrors and batshit insanity in a can.

I'd only spend my wages on books anyway, so its win-win really.

I'm reading Fisk, Robert Jordan, a book comparing Foucault with Zizek and (after dinner) Twilight.

Being unemployed is awesome.

Turned out two of those files were broken  :sad:

However, the good thing about Twilight being insanely, unreasonably popular is that there are always other working downloads if your original one turns out to be crap.

So I present, instead, pdfs of all four.  I'll mirror the link in the O:MF thread too.  And start reading these, and making notes tonight.

You should read Anti-Oedipus by Deleuze and Guattari after that.  Its a critique of Freudo-Marxism that builds on Reich and R.D. Laing to try and explain the appeal of fascism, among many other things.

Not in detail, no.  I have read about half, and I skimmed the rest as a test of quality and relevance assurance.
