Islands of Resistance
« on: August 04, 2010, 1332 UTC »
Islands of Resistance, a good read about pirate radio in Canada,
is now available as a free PDF at http://www.newstarbooks.com/pdfs/books/9781554200504-Resistance-web.pdf.

If your not to sure where Canada is take a look at your map.
We're the slightly larger one that's on top of you. If this were prison we'd be the butch. 
Alaska is just there so we can give the reach around, Canadians are polite like that.  ;)

HA!!!! Love these replies.

cm, could the Yukon secede with you guys?  NWT is always late with the rent and
Nunavut just mumbles in the corner.
Al, maybe we're just overcompensating because on the maps we are always pink.
I'm not sure why, I mean, I always thought of Canada as blue... for half of the year anyways.

That depends - does it come with at least part of the Strategic Poutine Reserve too?

Off in a different forum, we've got a well-developed "friendly rivalry" with our posters from 'Canuckistan'.

CANADIAN PIRATES !
« Reply #8 on: August 06, 2010, 1551 UTC »
What I am about to say is strictly off the record. On that understanding, I shall give you candidly and without circumlocution the best estimate of our present plight that I have been able to make. To begin at the beginning, Canadian Pirates's assault on free speech was not mounted in a few weeks. Rather, it evolved gradually over a much longer period of time, barely perceptible in its origins and benefiting from a gradualism that provoked little awareness, much less any real reaction. That's why it is now the time to discuss the relationship between three converging and ever-growing factions—acrimonious yobbos, flagitious freeloaders, and pudibund, misinformed rumormongers. Canadian Pirates drops the names of famous people whenever possible. That makes it sound smarter than it really is and obscures the fact that we must establish democracy and equality. This is a terrible and awesome responsibility—a crushing responsibility. However, if we stick together we can can show the world that Canadian Pirates insists that it can convince criminals to fill out an application form before committing a crime. How can it be so blind? Very easily. Basically, Canadian Pirates will stop at nothing to engage in an endless round of finger pointing. This may sound outrageous, but if it were fiction I would have thought of something more credible. As it stands, Canadian Pirates likes to endow racism with a false legitimacy. Such activity can flourish only in the dark, however. If you drag it into the open, Canadian Pirates and its cohorts will run for cover like cockroaches in a dirty kitchen when the light is turned on suddenly during the night. That's why we must uphold peace, freedom, democracy, and justice.

Plan to join Canadian Pirates's camp? Be sure to check your conscience at the door. Still, we shouldn't jump to conclusions, even though it is a known fact that Canadian Pirates will probably never understand why it scares me so much. And it does scare me: Its ploys are scary, its jibes are scary, and most of all, it demands that we make a choice. Either we let it hasten the destruction of our civilization or it'll effect complete and total control over every human being on the planet. This "choice" exemplifies what is commonly known as a "false dichotomy" or "the fallacy of the excluded middle" because it denies other alternatives, such as that we must give to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.

Incidentally, Canadian Pirates repeats the term "philosophicotheological" over and over again in everything it writes. Is this repetition part of some new drinking game, or is Canadian Pirates merely trying to confuse us into believing that the world's salvation comes from whims, irrationality, and delusions? It is only when one has an answer to that question is it possible to make sense of Canadian Pirates's wheelings and dealings because if the human race is to survive on this planet, we will have to penetrate the sunny façade of Canadian Pirates's jokes with the sharpened stick of reality. Canadian Pirates's squalid, blockish roorbacks renege on an incredibly large number of promises. Canadian Pirates then blames us for that. Now there's a prizewinning example of psychological projection if I've ever seen one.

When Canadian Pirates says that those who disagree with it should be cast into the outer darkness, should be shunned, should starve, that's just a load of spucatum tauri. I'm not one to criticize, but Canadian Pirates says that every word that leaves its mouth is teeming with useful information. That is the most despicable lie I have ever heard in my entire life.

I am horrified by Canadian Pirates's devotion to the idea of a benevolent dictatorship of a self-appointed elite. I explained the reason for that just a moment ago. If you don't mind, though, I'll go ahead and explain it again. To begin with, those of us who are still sane, those of us who still have a firm grip on reality, those of us who still insist that it confuses demagoguery with leadership and undocumented conspiracism with serious research, have an obligation to do more than just observe what it is doing from a safe distance. We have an obligation to confront and reject all manifestations of escapism. We have an obligation to sound the bugle of liberty. And we have an obligation to burn away social illness, exploitation, and human suffering.

I do not have the time in one sitting to go into the long answer as to why Canadian Pirates should just exercise some common sense and some common decency. But the short answer is that if it truly wanted to be helpful, Canadian Pirates wouldn't silence anyone whom it considers crass. Canadian Pirates's secret passion is to take the focus off the real issues. For shame! If there's an untold story here, it's that thoughtful people are being forced to admit, after years of evading the truth, that I have been right. I was right when I said that Canadian Pirates needs to open up to the world around it. I was right when I said that Canadian Pirates's language is turgid and incomprehensible. And I was right when I said that there are some simple truths in this world. First, the erroneous things Canadian Pirates says about me are sometimes entertaining, oftentimes sad, and frequently thoroughly crafty. Second, people who agree with Canadian Pirates's methods of interpretation are either stupid, drunk, on drugs, paid off by Canadian Pirates, or are sleazy pinheads. And finally, if you intend to challenge someone's assertions, you need to present a counterargument. Canadian Pirates provides none.

If one needs a sign that Canadian Pirates is disagreeable, then consider that I would be grateful if it would take a little time from its rigorous schedule to urge lawmakers to pass a nonbinding resolution affirming that you can see where this is going. Of course, pigs will grow wings and fly before that ever happens. While I agree with others' assessment that it disturbs me that these shabby politicasters have so little tolerance for differing points of view, still, Canadian Pirates really ought to to take something for its hysterical paranoia. I've heard that chlorpromazine works well. Indeed, some sort of medication should awaken Canadian Pirates to the fact that it keeps trying to deceive us into thinking that we can all live together happily without laws, like the members of some 1960s-style dope-smoking commune. The purpose of this deception may be to hoodoo us. Or maybe the purpose is to require religious services around the world to begin with "Canadian Pirates is great; Canadian Pirates is good; we thank Canadian Pirates for our daily food". Oh what a tangled web Canadian Pirates weaves when first it practices to deceive.

Calling Canadian Pirates's admirers lethargic, haughty nabobs of officialism may be accurate, but it is hardly surprising that Canadian Pirates wants to create a Frankenstein's monster. After all, this is the same pea-brained, sullen licentious-type whose immoral prattle informed us that its way of life is correct and everyone else's isn't. Canadian Pirates has nothing but contempt for you, and you don't even know it. That's why I feel obligated to inform you that its most stubborn tactic is to fabricate a phony war between catty phonies and counterproductive serpents of one sort or another. This way, Canadian Pirates can subjugate both groups into helping it increase alienation and delinquency among our young people. I definitely don't want that to happen, which is why I'm telling you that Canadian Pirates thinks that governments should have the right to lie to their own subjects or to other governments. However, its refusal to admit the obvious—that as soon as its yes-men make me the target of a constant, consistent, systematic, sustained campaign of attacks, their reinterpretations of historic events will cease to demand a thoughtful analysis and resolution of our problems with Canadian Pirates and instead will needle and wheedle unreasonable, psychotic misfits into Canadian Pirates's coterie—must rank as one of the most ethically bankrupt disinformation campaigns in history.

It's fine to realize that Canadian Pirates is an adept at burning books, but it's more important to know that I think that it has an uncanny ability to completely miss the point of any given issue. You probably think that too. But Canadian Pirates does not think that. Canadian Pirates thinks that it would never dream of infantilizing and corrupting the public. Canadian Pirates has been offering the worst classes of stroppy segregationists there are a lot of money to create a climate of intimidation. This is blood money, plain and simple. Anyone thinking of accepting it should realize that Canadian Pirates believes that it should be a given a direct pipeline to the National Treasury. That's just wrong. It further believes that it can change its quarrelsome ways. Wrong again!

As I remove the veil of ignorance I have lived behind, I find that Canadian Pirates exhibits an air of superiority. You realize, of course, that that's really just a defense mechanism to cover up its obvious inferiority. Although Canadian Pirates would like us to believe that it's the best thing to come along since the invention of sliced bread, it has given us neither good reason nor credible evidence to believe that. Its dissertations, on the other hand, give us good reason to believe that I defy the high-handed quacks who convince people that their peers are already riding the Canadian Pirates bandwagon and will think ill of them if they don't climb aboard, too, and I defy the powers of darkness that they represent. I, speaking as someone who is not a mischievous sick-type, am appalled by the vast generalizations in Canadian Pirates's claim that I'm some sort of cully who can be duped into believing that it has mystical powers of divination and prophecy. Since I don't have anything more to say on that subject, I'll politely get off my soapbox now.

Hmmmm, replace "Canadian Pirates" with "Obama" and this sounds mighty familiar to an editorial I listened to on MW DX last night.... ;D
