Dylann Roof’s manifesto

The following are texts posted on Dylann Roof’s personal website, the site has since been taken down by the US government. A very profound read in to the mind of a young southern boy imho.

I was not raised in a racist home or environment. Living in the South,
almost every White person has a small amount of racial awareness, simply
because of the numbers of negroes in this part of the country. But it is a
superficial awareness. Growing up, in school, the White and black kids would
make racial jokes toward each other, but all they were were jokes. Me and
White friends would sometimes would watch things that would make us think
that “blacks were the real racists” and other elementary thoughts like
this, but there was no real understanding behind it.

One of the most profound things I’ve read from a game modder

The following was from a FAQ of a Dungeon Siege mod “Land of Hyperborea”:

Q) Why am I limited in what I can choose for my character’s appearance?
A) If you haven’t played the Single-player game yet, I encourage you to
do so. The answer will probably dawn on you as you are playing.

If you have played the single player game and still don’t
understand why, then you’ve missed one of the more important
messages of the story. T’Vril, your faithful companion throughout
the adventure, a woman who risks her life and literally endures
deep pain for you, her friend (watch the NIS sequences outside
Tir’Malani and Valhalla again), is constantly and repeatedly
attacked throughout the entire story because of either her racial
heritage (Dark Elf), her religious creed (Vox-worshipper), or
both. She is spit upon, trodden upon, and many times she is
spotted by a racial or religious enemy, you have to re-start from
a previous save, and try having her sneak around the bigoted NPC.
And yet, she is not a creature worthy of any of this treatment.
To the contrary, her behavior in the storyline shows that she is
greater than any of the other characters in the entire game, even
the hero. Despite hatred, despite prejudice, despite bigotry,
despite everything – she is your one, true friend.

Yes, I could add different skin colors to farmgirl and farmboy.
However, if I do, does this comprise an open acknowledgement of
cultural and racial heritage in real life, or is it really just a
crutch the player uses to dodge the serious and complex issue of
racial bias that their companion, T’Vril, faces nearly everywhere
in the adventure? To me, as the author of the story, allowing
multiple skin choices for the player somehow takes away from one
of the larger messages of the story – T’Vril is hated everywhere
she goes for her race or creed, or both. And yet, despite the
terrible treatment she gets, she is your one true friend in the
entire adventure.

In real life, people don’t have a choice as to what color their
skin will be – nor, really, do they have any choice in how other
people will treat them because of their racial or cultural
heritage. In LoH, a Dark Elf has two choices – male or female.
The other choices are simply variations in facial appearance and
hairstyle. If you’re born blue, you’re born blue – you have to
deal with how everyone else will treat you.

In the game, T’Vril has no choice about how anyone will treat her.
The world simply is the way it is, and she simply has to deal with
it. Allowing the player an infinite variety of skins for their
character is possible, but mutes a very important message in the
story – those aren’t the choices your companion has available to
her. Only through your courage, strength, compassion and
understanding does she overcome the bigots of her world. And so
it is in the real world, as well.

The Rise of our Masters – Post 2 – Rothschild Family – Master of Europe

Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws” – Mayer Amschel Rothschild

For the people that are working in the finance/banking industry but does not know the “Rothschild Family”, it is comparable to a military officer that has not heard of Napoleon or a physicist that has not heard of Einstein. The Rothschild Family has had such an enormous impact on today’s world and yet it has managed to stay largely invisible to the general public.

Strict family control, total black box operation, precise like clockwork, always know better than the market, completely rational thinking, endless hunger for money, and amazing ability to predict, these traits has made the Rothschild family invincible in the past 200 years through all the turmoils of war, politics and finances, they built the largest financial empire known to the world, their total asset is estimated to be 30 trillion dollars today, in another words, they are worth about 100 Microsoft in terms of market cap, 15 China or 2 United States in terms of total annual GDP.

Top 10 Reasons to use WordPress as a CMS

Using WordPress as a CMS can be easily done. But I do not recommend those who want to have a cookie cutter solution. If you want to have something that works out of the box, then WordPress as a CMS is not for you. To use WordPress as a CMS, a small amount of modification is required. But the benefit and reward is huge! These are some reasons why I would use WordPress as a CMS platform.

10. WordPress has amazing SEO by default without tweaking. If you want more SEO, it’s easily done by installing a couple of plugins, such as the All in One SEO Pack or Remove WWW plugin. Or just use a theme that support SEO such as the popular Genesis theme.

9. Easy admin interface. WordPress’s administration interface is the easiest and most intuitive by far. It’s way better than Joomla or Drupal. You’ll work much more efficiently and save much time by using WordPress.

8. WordPress is standard compliant. So why use other bloated and non-compliant CMS when you could have WordPress power your site?

7. WordPress is Free and Open Source. WordPress give you commercial level quality and stability for free.

5. Easy to install. WordPress is famous for its 5 second installation. Usually it even takes me less than that!

4. Easy to upgrade. Most if not all wordpress plugins and themes do not modify wordpress source code. So to upgrade WordPress, just use the built in auto-update feature and you are done! Which other CMS system can make this claim?

3. It has been done successfully. CNET, Ford, ZDNET and various other popular sites has used WordPress as a CMS.

2. Free support from a vibrant and amazing community of developers and contributors. Huge amount of documentation available both on wordpress.org and other sites (like this one ^^).

1. WordPress is popular. Over 2% of all website on the internet is powered by WordPress. That means there are tons of amazing plugins and themes for you to choose from to make your CMS system work easier. Need a poll? there is an amazing poll plugin (wp-poll). Need a contact form? there is an amazing contact form plugin(cform 2). Need a gallery? there is an amazing gallery plugin (nextgen).  Need a forum? there is an amazing forum plugin! (simpleforum).
