In the previous
newsletter I asked for your input regarding how frequently you
would like to receive this newsletter. Thank you to everyone
who responded, some with extremely detailed requests and
While replies were
varied, the most common request was to receive it every 2
weeks. But your valued input and responses have also prompted
me to completely redesign the site, with the intention of
providing a news portal that focuses on war-related 'end
times' news. The look and feel will be similar to other
portals like msn.com with one noticeable exception: no
adverts! Details of the new site will be announced in the next
newsletter, due by March 22.

ThreeWorldWars Takes on Google!
If you're a frequent web surfer, you've
more than likely used the award-winning
search engine, which is designed to provide a simple, fast way
to search the Internet for information. Offering users access
to an index comprising more than 4 billion URLs (websites),
Google is the largest search engine on the World Wide Web.
Google maintains its leadership position in the search
industry by continually innovating its search capabilities.
Google is a play on the word googol, which
was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician
Edward Kasner, to refer to the number represented by 1
followed by 100 zeros. Google's use of the term reflects the
company's mission to organize the immense amount of
information available on the web.
OK, so that's what their press releases say. For the most, I
agree with their ability to present mostly relevant pages, but
that's only if you're searching for popular themes and topics.
As soon as one starts researching the items of interest to
readers of the ThreeWorldWars newsletter, it becomes
challenging to find relevant and fresh information. So in a
moment of lofty delusion, I've decided to 'take on Google'. Of
course I don't want to beat them on size - just relevance. The
idea is to build a substantial database of links relevant to
'end times' and the coming world war.
And this is where you can help. We all have sites we enjoy
visiting: our 'Favorites'. Please take a minute to visit the
categories I'm putting together. If you have a suggestion that
fits with the collection I'm trying to build, please add it as
a suggestion. It'll take only a few minutes, and your
contribution will be much appreciated. The link won't appear
immediately - within 48 hours I'll review all submissions and
decide whether it fits somewhere within the broad theme of
Ratchets up War Rhetoric
The "surprise" across the West at the
commercial arrival of China over the past few years fails to
comprehend that China is the last great area of humanity to
enter into our modern world. Prior to the year 1900, all and
sundry nations established beachheads on China's coastline.
The Chinese Emperor did not have the military means with which
to counter this. Then came the great upsets. In 1933, Japan
began making imperial inroads upon China's main territory,
with vast technical superiority. This mainland war lasted
until 1945, to be superseded by the ongoing Chinese civil war,
which China's Mao Tse Tung, won in 1947. Like Lenin, Mao
discovered that Communism couldn't work.
The end result was that back in 1970, China
stood with a national GDP of a paltry $US 106 Billion. A
third of a century later this national GDP has managed to
climb to $US 1.3 TRILLION. Divided by 1.3 billion Chinese,
that comes to a per capita GDP of just $US 1,000. China as a
closed society has only really come forward into the modern
world over the last two decades.
It happened slowly at first but much faster
over the past decade or so. Today, China has a new middle
class, in economic terms, of about 70-80 million people, all
paying increased taxes as a result of an exploding economy.
These increased taxes are being spent on an increasing
military budget: up 12% to more than $25bn:

The purpose was supposedly to win the
world's sympathy for Taiwan in its struggle against China. But
it could end up further antagonizing the communist giant,
particularly when there were public scenes (unfortunately not
televised) of large groups of people burning the Chinese flag,
amidst loud cheers. See article:

Maybe it's just the eternal pessimist in
me, but I can't help thinking that all of this is simply a
conditioning exercise, to prepare the minds of people here in
Asia to the fact that war at some stage is inevitable.

generally uneducated public at that) for input regarding

Living a Long and
In honor of my father's 60th birthday this
week, I thought I'd mention a little about longevity. I know
this has nothing to do with war, but looking at the profiles
of the valued ThreeWorldWar subscribers, many are approaching
or well over 40 and could be facing health issues.
The maximum life span of humans is about
110 years; of mice, about 39 months. In experiments to extend
the life of mice beyond 39 months, the only effective method
found thus far is the selective restriction of calories in the
diet. Calorie Restriction (CR) has extended the 39-month
maximum life span of mice to an impressive 56 months, which
would correspond proportionally to a 158 year-old human. And
the long- lived mice stay youthful in appearance, in mental
and physical abilities, and show enhanced resistance to
disease. These well-established facts are why the CR diet is
now one of the principal areas of research in gerontology, and
is receiving major emphasis from the National Institute on

Vote? A total waste of time, obviously. The
ruling elite vets all leading candidates in advance, at all
levels of government. And voting for the lesser of two evils
is what gave America George II (that is, if you don't count
the Supreme Court's role, of course). Remember: the lesser of
two evils is still evil.
Ten Reasons Not to Vote
1. Reform is the biggest enemy of revolution and the electoral
system is the essence of reformism. Voting gives the
impression of participation and change, yet it is the backbone
of a society based upon alienation and boredom. Voting lures
me away from the real task of demolishing existing
institutions. In the short term the voter gets token,
pacifying reform, and in the long run we get the same
electoral repetition, with no significant change.
2. To vote is to accept the limits of my
own power. It makes me as powerful (or powerless) as the cross
on the ballot-paper. Democracy is the amassed power of several
million opinions reduced to a whimpering and stifled cheer for
the same masters we've had all of our lives.
3. There is nobody who can run my life
better than myself. Why then should I give others the power to
decide how I should run my life?
4. There are those who would vote, yet
still be active in the struggle for real change. They are like
vegetarians working in slaughterhouses.
5. Voting is the excuse we need to avoid
organizing ourselves, to avoid creating our own alternative.
Voting is accepting that the power of the state is preferable
to the power of the individual and the power of the community.
6. The weight and force of the blow of a
policeman's truncheon does not change when the truncheon is
painted a different color. All democratic institutions are
'law and order' institutions.
7. Voting is a clever way of getting me to
sign my name to a whole series of measures, when in fact I am
only aware of three or four of them. Thus, my vote is my
personal approval of every single policy carried out by the
party I vote for, without exception. By the time the elected
party has spent a year in office, I won't even recognize the
measures I voted for - but I will be subject to the laws and
restrictions imposed through each and every decision made by
8. Voting for the lesser of two (or more)
evils perpetuates the biggest evil of all: the evil of stasis,
a world where all change is superficial. Invariably this means
that we eagerly vote in order to grasp the available
entertainment of politicians walking tightropes between
popularity and personal wealth and comfort.
9. Voting legitimizes not only the system
of government we have now, it also legitimizes the
pendulum-style inevitability of the electoral process. (No
matter how many times you flip the coin, it will never land on
it's edge. The Democrat / Republican Alliance exists in the
no-hope land between left and right, and voting for it only
strengthens the swinging regularity of the elections). Surely
it's far better to encourage real change - which can only
happen outside of government.
10. Voting is slapping a preservation order
on corruption, inequality, and mass-manufactured boredom. In
short, voting is the blinding of the people, by the people.

I should probably clarify a little more
some of my beliefs about freedom and privacy, which all
The ongoing erosion of privacy in the world
is (or should be), in my mind, the most important issue facing
Without privacy, we have nothing, or less
Privacy is a human imperative because
privacy of self is an important biological necessity of a sane
and stable sense of self. It is a scientific fact that a
rational person cannot have their autonomous sense of self -
their sense of privacy of self - compromised and still
function as a healthy individual.
Thinking and creativity require the
capacity to make independent judgments. An invasion of our
privacy such as that going on in most Western countries today
violates that capacity.
It is more than important to reclaim our
privacy; it is a biological necessity.
Instead of voting for the lesser of two
evils, put your energy into reclaiming and then defending your
The Passion of Christ
You may be aware that Mel Gibson's 'The
Passion of Christ' was released in the U.S. on Ash Wednesday,
25 February. It is due for release in the UK later this month.
The film, which depicts the last hours of
Christ, has caused uproar in the US, and has received extreme
reviews. It has also broken the US five-day box office record
held by 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' - it
made $125.2m (£68.2m) in its first five days, and a total of
$212m (£115m) in the first two weeks.
Since I can't comment on the movie yet (it's not yet released
in Asia, from where this newsletter is currently published),
here are a number of interesting comments on the film:
The controversy certainly is raging on!
Sponsored Haitian Coup d'Etat
Do you find the recent 'resignation' and
disappearance of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide just
a trifle odd? The truth is that Aristide was whisked out of
Haiti by armed marines after a meeting with James Foley, US
Ambassador to Haiti (earlier in charge of US relations with
the Kosovo Liberation Army). An eyewitness report from Agence
France Presse implied he was under arrest, another stated he
He was then flown by the US to The Central
African Republic although countries far closer would have
accepted him. For days even his lawyer was unable to contact
him. This is a carbon copy of the failed coup in Venezuela,
when the State Department lied that Chavez had resigned.
US State Department Richard Boucher has
stated that they have no obligation to uphold 'bad'
governments even if they were democratically elected. Last
Friday an estimated ten thousand people demonstrated against
the US-backed coup.
