Armenian Genocide

categories:

rantapod-021rantapod-021The internet is an information tool. It's also a mis-information tool. Some of the more gruesome kidnapping videos posted on the internet from Iraq may be faked. Politicians of every stripe see the internet as a tool for re-arranging the truth to make it more to their liking. In the environment of Bush Whitehouse demagoguery we are in a world of George Orwell 1984 style doublethink. In this realm are a whole host of White supremacists, Moslem fundamentalists, and genocide denial groups. One of the most insidious is the Turkish government which refuses to admit the Ottoman genocide against the Armenians. Since I am Armenian I know more about this than the average American. I grew up with stories from my grandmother and all the adults (I was raised in the Armenian community of Watertown, Massachusetts)about the Armenian Genocide. I happened upon a report by an American professor by the name of Justin A. McCarthy.Justin A. McCarthy, a Ph.D professor at the University of Louisville denies the Armenian genocide ever took place. Holocaust denial and genocide denial are increasingly tools of the power elite. Look at George Bush. He's perfected lying and denial to a high art.

Nerve Theory's H5N1 Series

categories: |



Kunstradio, a radio art program of the ORF, Austria's national broadcaster, is featuring a weekly series of radio miniatures by Nerve Theory throughout 2006.

The series is called "H5N1: there is no privacy at the speed of light." Nerve Theory is the corporate identity of Bernhard Loibner and Tom Sherman.

Nerve Theory's latest work focuses on the bird flu virus, H5N1, and the hysteria surrounding the inevitable global influenza pandemic. Loibner and Sherman use the idea of the evolving, mutating H5N1 virus as a launching pad for a series of scary, strangely funny statements about the world we live in. Imagine a world where artists write and deliver the news. Loibner and Sherman are not scientists, but they are experts in observing and describing media viruses and a delivering broad spectrum of living, evolving ideas.
