There’s no future in nuclear.

So the question is not if, [but] when are we going to move out of nuclear completely.

At ~6:00 in

Tepco and the gov’t … have been telling lies to the people. They’ve been trying to hide the information.

At 13:45 in

The government sometimes hides numbers or gives you wrong numbers or gives you different numbers. So people wondering what to trust.

    All governments lie. This is big and still my family and friends refuse to listen to my conspiracy "rants"

    Gov't's have kept information from the public on this disaster, they are sticking together. President Kennedy warned us of a secret society.

    Most people here know gov’t lie, and that the corporations run the officials. Why do you think corporations give so much to the people who are running for office. They expect favors, nothing is free. Favors were given to the Gulf Disaster and now this devastating Disaster.

    Their plan is, the public will also be run by them. Privatizing means corporation owned. If they don't make a profit, things will be cut drastically.

    If they have their way, we will all owe our souls to the company store. (16 Tons)

    Tepco is a corporation, they are not in the business to have a heart. They are in business to make a profit.

    Gov't's should be in the business of taking care their Country and the people. Working together to make this a safe world.

    Corporations and the Gov't's should never mix, it only creates lies and cover ups.

    One theory to consider is that someone living their lives based on ego cannot handle the truth, because their whole world would fall apart. These egos base their whole world on false beliefs that are nothing but myths, lies, illusions and/or dogma.

    The truth is too awful to handle, so the only answer is terminal denial. An ego threatened by truth supports only those ego based illusions that most closely match their own. In other words, birds of a ego based feather fly together.

    Someone living in soul on the other hand, can handle paradoxes and lies quite well, because that is the nature of living a life beyond duality, black and white, right/wrong, enemy/friend.

    Keep on spreading those seeds of love, light and truth… some will germinate… eventually.

    Thank you AGR and to all the 'newsers, for your tireless efforts.

    Big Nuke is starting to crumble before our eyes …

    Take heart in all the truth that you are spreading,

    For there are lies, and there are damned lies.

    Peace to all "enenewsers" and to admin. The truth is the

    strongest argument. For a while we will survive.

      Hi nedlifromvermont

      Quote: Big Nuke is starting to crumble before our eyes

      I really hope you are right. I would love to see all Countries close their nuclear plants, and start up a safer energy.

    Not just tepco or Japan and U.S. governments, but with "anything nuclear" it's all secretive. All of it.

    Here is some wisdom on the use of the 'big lie' – from Adolf Hitler, himself: (we got deja vu all over again…)

    "All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true within itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

    It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."
    —Adolf Hitler , Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X[1]

    This, by Joseph Goebbels, seems to be a perfect fit with TEPCO's strategy. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    If the shoe fits…

    "The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous."[2]
