  1. Comment on Friday thread: Perhaps ‘War’ brings a properly social benefit after all?

    “If you’re not violent enough by the standards of the species also you’re going to be disadvantaged in passing your genes on to the next generation you going to lose out in the race for food or mates or whatever it might be.”

    It is useful if you can use others as the means to promote and act out violence. They suffer and die and by some miracle you still retain the biological advantage, you don’t lose out in the race for food, mates, money or power.

  2. Comment on #Finucane: this report is a sham, this report is a whitewash
    on 12 December 2012 at 7:47 pm

    I read the summary of this report today and felt physically sick.

    In the year of Finucane’s killing I spent and evening with the FRU. Lets just say it was not the most enjoyable of experiences and twenty three years on I still suffer PTSD and epilepsy as a result.

    There must be others like myself within our community who suffered because of the low quality intelligence gathering of
    these thugs, the so called security forces supposedly acting on our behalf.

    What proof if any do we have that things have changed in the intervening years?
