My friend made this very accessible and non-emotionally charged site explaining the NDAA in straightforward and simple terms.  A perfect link to share with those who who aren’t familiar and don’t fully understand what it means and what the controversy is.

Some ‘Seasteaders’ Changing Course to Form Autonomous Libertopian City-States Within Willing Countries Like Tropical Honduras

19 12 2011

Patri Friedman (that’s Milton Friedman’s grandson to you), who stepped down as the chief executive of the Peter Thiel-backed Seasteading Institute in August, has resurfaced as the CEO of a new for-profit enterprise named Future Cities Development Inc., which aims to create new cities from scratch (on land this time) governed by “cutting-edge legal systems.” The startup may have found its first taker in Honduras, whose government amended its constitution in January to permit the creation of special autonomous zones exempt from local and federal laws.

“Deadly Monopolies”: Bio-colonialsm and medical corporatism: organism, gene and human tissue patents.

20 11 2011

Watch or listen to the 45 minute interview here.

From Democracy Now:

One of the major themes raised by the Occupy movement is the increasing power of large corporations over more and more aspects of our lives.

Our guest, Harriet Washington, is a medical ethicist and has just published a book that examines the extent to which what she calls the medical-industrial complex has come to control human life. In the past 30 years, more than 40,000 patents have been granted on genes alone—many more patents are pending. Washington argues that the biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies patenting these genes are more concerned with profit than with the health or medical needs of patients. Her new book is called “Deadly Monopolies: The Shocking Corporate Takeover of Life Itself—And the Consequences for Your Health and Our Medical Future.”
