Comparing yourself to Jesus

December 30th, 2012 at 4:41 pm by David Farrar

Dotcom Jesus

I guess this is what happens when the media fellate you continuously (witness the masses of stories written just about a tweet announcing a press conference in a month’s time!). Comparing yourself to Jesus, especially at Christmas time, is rather over the top.

Hat Tip: Keeping Stock

    Unless he’s changed his name to ‘Mega’ then he’s comparing his company to Jesus rather than himself.

    I wonder if this is a strategy, Keep in the public eye right through to the end, remember we tend to forget who was in last weeks news. He would’ve had my respect if he didn’t throw himself about, we are still a nation of “Keep it tight” but instead he has taken it to the facebook level. If he can relaunch a second cable laying then he’s only giving the rest of us better access in the not too distant future.

    He could do with a few walks in our native bush, it might get him out of the gamer psyche and might get him into a gym somewhere otherwise he looks repulsive to most offhand appraisals.

    Business is business but now he is a major public figure whether you love him or hate him, he can capitalize on it by trimming down, getting tanned and become the nations next couple to watch, Why not? We went silly over the Hobbit opening.

    I don’t read listen to or watch mainstream media, so I wouldn’t know what most people are talking about in respect of their relationship with Dotcom.

    I do know though that most of what the government has done to this guy has been illegal and as a result of what looks like the Key government’s sycophantic desire to please Barack Obama and his Hollywood financial backers.

    The illegal government actions would seem to be the real issue, rather than if he’s being favoured by the local left wing media. If there is any such media attention, Key and National brought it upon themselves by signing off on this whole over the top charade.

    Swat teams and helicopters, and property invasion and property theft all for alleged copyright infringement that should be a civil issue anyway.

    Disgusting, and the kind of thing you would expect in the defunct Soviet Union, but not a supposedly free and democratic western country.

    None of us would have a problem with Dotcom going to court if the court case was a civil case that it should be. But no your lovely mates at the FBI (destroyers of freedom) have turned this into a criminal case by stretching the Law and the Truth.
    But I’m not surpised that socilialists of your persuasion simply cannot see the difference.

    Yvette.
    Jesus was indicted and sentenced to die by the same type of court.
    One, which was afraid of the truth and was too weak to uphold its own principles.

    he didn’t have a 72 page indictment issued against him by the Court of Eastern Virginia
    But it was spoken just the same. An indictment is a one sided version of the story. No facts are tested and no other side is told. The indictment presumes guilt before any test. An indictment that has already been shown to be an entrapment.
    Would you go willingly to justice like that?

    I’ve concluded that – as in many other instances – this trivia has gripped NZer’s imagination because – wait for it – nothing ever happens here!!! And when something nearly does – Wow!! Look out!.

    Don’t get me wrong! I’m not knocking NZ. Far from it! In fact i emigrated here in ’74 for the very reason that nothing of any consequence ever happens here.

    So when something nearly, or almost, happens – like all this irrelevant Dotcom nonsense – the country is mesmerised and the blogs/airwaves/press/TV are full of it.

    @ Viking2 – so you’ve done a thorough legal review of the evidence presented against Dotcom, have you? Or are you just seduced by the charm offensive through the medias, which when Dotcom is left to his own devices (e.g. let loose on Twitter), he manages to screw up?

    Megaupload paid people to provide unique content. They did not question where the content came from, even though they would have been only too away that the vast bulk of the content was obtained illegally. People then paid a subscription to Megaupload to access the unique/illegally obtained content without having to pay to access each movie or music file. And because people then didn’t have to pay to buy or go and watch the unique/illegally obtained content, those whose intellectual property was involved missed out on revenue.

    Let’s say you were a car dealer, importing cars from Japan. How would you feel if a bloke set up a yard opposite yours where people could pay an annual subscription of much less than the price of one of your cars, then go to him and get another car whenever they wanted, shutting off your source of income? That’s how Dotcom operated. He got light-fingered people to pirate content for him, paying them a pittance, then on-sold it to the masses who subscribed, all under the veneer of a “file-sharing service”. The whole operation is based around dishonesty and greed.

    If Dotcom wants his day in court, and wants to prove that the allegations against him and his mates are a crock of shite, all he has to do is tell the court in NZ that he will voluntarily go to the US. Then we will all know whether Megaupload was kosher or not. So why won’t he do it? Ask yourself that question, and answer honestly :D

    Wrong.
    Megaupload was a storage service whioch others could use and share what they stored.
    That other chose to rise to incentives to use the service and in doing so illegally pirated material is harldy the fault of the landlord.
    You should also note that the storage service was also used by thousands of legitimate users who have been denied their legal owned material. There’s a hypocrisay for a start.
    The FBI have “stolen” that material and tend to do with it what they will decide. xcept that there is a court fight to a. prevent
    that illegal use and to force the FBI to return the stolen property.
    You completely ignore this side of the business because like the FBI and most other whinging socialists it simply doesn’t suit you to aknowledge it because it blows your bullshit away.

    As for reading the FBI indictment. Well that’s well uider dispute as we reffered to earlier.

    Having been late this year involved with another legitmate business enterprise in the USA that was closed by the SEC, without any consultation with the business owners, in which thousands have had their cash frozen and then given to recievers to spend, (and they have indicated some 60 million in cash that belonged to members of the business will all go in their expenses.). I have little regard for process in the USA and frankly would consider it to be the most unfreindly business country I know.

    The SEC have since admitted their culpability but there will be no recompense and no return to the members of that organization. Arsewipes to the extreme.

    So fuck off with your whinning supoport of the Yankee establishment.
    Until they are imnmediately accountable for their actions they are as bad as Stalin. Terrorists of the State.

    Dotcom is not a New Zealand citizen RB. Nor, with the current charges pending and his past criminal convictions, is he likely to become one any time soon, as he fails the good character test.

    @Viking2 – do you REALLY believe that the fee for uploading unique content was anything other than an incentive for people to pirate the intellectual property of others. I am well aware that Megaupload was a data warehouse, but that was merely a front for the real money-maker; the sale of subscriptions to access content that users would otherwise have to purchase individually. Surely you, as a champion of free enterprise would be aghast at those who made movies, records etc being denied the opportunity to make money from their efforts.

    That innocent people have been caught up in all of this is unfortunate. However I do not consider Kim Dotcom to be one of those innocents. He claims that the allegations against him are false, and that he wants his day in court. Let him have it, and we’ll see who is right and who is wrong.

    KS. No not really.
    For they were not denied any oppourtunity at all. They were simply out manouvred in the game of life. Had they been operating in 2012 instead of 1912 then they would not have this issue. Plenty do. Just not the yankee film and music industry, They prefer to rort people to support their aging and costly distribution system rather than make much more money by being customer focussed and fulfulling the customers needs/wants in 2012/3.

    Mega paid incentives for traffic. Most bloggers etc want traffic so if I pay adwords for traffic is that wrong? If I buy traffic from a traffic generator is that wrong. The generator of the trafic isn’t selling what I may be selling, they are supplying traffic, i.e. customers. So if I sell say, porn, is that their respsonsibilty?

    Apart from that it remains a civil action in every country except under the FBI rules of the USA. To accuse mega of laundering money that is from a bona fide transaction because the film and music industry refuse to use their civil law to attend to the problem and use that as a criminal excuse is an abuse of process (as has been established), and smacks of both political and criminal interference in the natural rule of law.

    Further the continuing withholding of other persons information and in some cases their work, is bloody appalling.

    According to you collaterall damage is just a casualty of war. Well many of those casualties, (customers of Mega),wouldn’t share your selfish view.

    Withholding of evidence is also a travesty. Again already ruled unlawfull in our courts. So until the FBI front up with the evidence and make both that and the other goods stored available to the other customers of mega, then the FBI are no better than low life theives.
    Clearly they ain’t the stuff of TV FBI.

    Stalin purged people who didn’t share his view of how things should be.
    Isn’t that what the FBI are doing as agent for the film and music industry?
    State sanctioned removal of another business.

    Can’t agree with you there, V2.

    If we consider (for example) the position of musicians who displeased Stalin –
    public humiliation, restriction of movement, banning of performances, loss of livelihood.
    Musicians were the lucky ones as they managed to survive to tell the tale.

    Is there really a parallel to the FBI pursuing someone over alleged copyright infringement?

    I have a feeling V2 will find it hard to back down on this one.

    Except FBI act as an agent of the state. When that agent prosecutes a civil matter as a crime then its a very greasy slope.

    Even MM might grasp that small detail, perhaps.
    But then maybe not.

    Perhaps you could read this from WOBH. Might just indicate to you the kinda festering rotteness that is currently the USA.

    To quote Mark Steyn: “If the People’s Republic carries on buying American debt at the rate it has in recent times, then within a few years U.S. interest payments on that debt will be covering the entire cost of the Chinese armed forces.”

    Imagine: through debt interest, soon American taxpayers will be funding 100 per cent of the Chinese military.

    You claimed earlier that the FBI was ‘as bad as Stalin. Terrorists of the State’. Rodders pointed out that the FBI pursuing copyright infringement as a criminal rather than a civil matter hardly warranted that comparison. I merely predicted that you would find it hard to back away from that statement. Until you do, I shall continue to find your twisting and turning exceptionally humorous.
