Machiavelli 2.0: The Paris Attacks and the Muslim Brotherhood

Lis­ten (MP3): This pro­gram was recorded in one, 60-minute segment

In the wake of the ter­ror­ist inci­dents in Paris, dis­cus­sion has point­edly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islamic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-communist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Suc­cess­fully scape­goated by Euro­pean fas­cist groups like the National Front, ele­ments of the Broth­er­hood net­work with those same fas­cists, mutu­ally ben­e­fit­ting from cul­tural and polit­i­cal alien­ation gen­er­ated among their respec­tive sup­port­ers. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nomic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­ogy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nomic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tinue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Saudi intel­li­gence in places like the Cau­ca­sus and China’s Xin­jiang Province.

The Big Bitcoin Bet, Part 2: Big Money to Buy Bitcoin, and Other Bad Ideas 2014 could have been better for Bitcoin. After peaking near $1100 in December 2013, Bitcoin is currently under $250. 2014 was not a good year for Bitcoin. But that doesn't mean 2015 has to be the same. And if a slew of recent announcement involving some very big investors are any indication of what to expect, the mainstreaming Bitcoin is about to get a big boost. But that boost could come with a big price too. All those "microtransactions" of as little as 0.000000001 of one bitcoin (BTC) that much of the Bitcoin community hates so much is precisely what these deep pocketed interests are planning on promoting in a big way. And in order to make it all happen, they might have to become some of the biggest bitcoin miners around too. And that means the future of Bitcoin is increasing in the hands of 'The Man'. Also, the microtransactions might be used to monetize how we access the web. And how the Internet of Things spies on us. It doesn't actually sound very fun. Read more »
