    Oh – even here years after Antonio webmaster banned me from the site, Galtung is still promoting his old collapse narrative. :-)

    Is it ok to ask questions and to challenge Galtung or is the site still only permitting the anti-USA views?


    • thoughtful person says:

      Many now subscribe to the collapse of the USA empire narrative…. are you a CIA funded troll?

      • Thank you, thoughtful person. Here it is by definition what the label Thomas Krogh represents:

        Internet Troll:
        A person, usually operating under a pseudonym, who posts deliberately provocative messages to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of provoking maximum disruption and argument. They are often paid by nefarious sources but sometime are motivated to do so for their own amusement. They often try to provoke dissension and doubt by writing dis-informational comments to the editor and/or other participants in a given discussion.
