Unfortunately I'm at a crossroad in my life. After attempting to defect to China and being turned in, as if 1 skip defecting every 10 years exceeded their asylum quota, I am now about to try Russia. I want to check that my blog is visible from the outside. I had this (quickly-terminated) conversation (timestamps in Sydney daylight saving times (UTC+11)) where you can see that my blog isn't even visible, then suddenly "the feds" allow it through. Usual plausible deniability. And yes, I'm 99.99% sure it's just a technical glitch and the feds aren't really doing this, but when I have actions like this happening, I have no choice but to follow the "one percent doctrine" (terrorists having nukes):

paul (19/03/2011 1:29:42 PM): hello. you've been offline for a long time!
american (19/03/2011 1:36:41 PM): Hi paul. i took a break while things were happening. i'm glad the UN has decided to enforce a no-fly zone. I'm not sure that going in earlier would have been a better option (risk of increased retaliation, resent at outsider meddling, risk of of self-determination being co-opted by more western puppets, preempting the uprising succeeding on its own, etc., risk of losses damage from airstrikes, risk of inflamed ground-war, or release of biochemical weapons...), but I'm glad it's happening now. I did not want to see it go on any longer. You were pretty accurate about the need for a large-munitions response.
american (19/03/2011 1:37:20 PM): Libyan's would not have been able to overthrow Gaddafi by themselves, although I think it would have been a long and bloody stalemate, since putting the country back together under his rule would not have been possible either.
paul (19/03/2011 1:37:53 PM): i'm certainly happy enough. i've almost stopped watching now. it's in safe hands now
paul (19/03/2011 1:38:12 PM): i actually moved on to something else now
american (19/03/2011 1:38:55 PM): ...?
paul (19/03/2011 1:39:11 PM): see my latest blog post
paul (19/03/2011 1:39:18 PM): http://antisubjugator.blogspot.com
paul (19/03/2011 1:39:53 PM): by the way, there is one thing that was not done - the letter i sent to saif on 28th feb was not actioned
paul (19/03/2011 1:39:56 PM): unfortunately
american (19/03/2011 1:44:26 PM): I believe the people of Libya will half to self-organize in a way that makes sense for them, determined by them. Although these countries are in flux, they are not laboratories for our technologically progressive democratic solutions. Those should be tried in developed nations that have the civic structure and the technological capacity and security to implement them. Of course, we should offer to help other countries with these tools, but I doubt we should too strongly be telling them how to use the freedom they have just fought for. That's my first response; I didn't read through anything.
paul (19/03/2011 1:44:59 PM): that response is in relation to nothing i actually said
american (19/03/2011 1:45:05 PM): correct
paul (19/03/2011 1:45:21 PM): i am not asking them to experiment on themselves
american (19/03/2011 1:45:22 PM): i didn't read through anything except the title "plan for libya"
american (19/03/2011 1:45:34 PM): that was the pad
paul (19/03/2011 1:45:59 PM): plan a-plan c was for gaddafi to live and die in libya
paul (19/03/2011 1:46:16 PM): i came up with a plan d for gaddafi to fuck off while saving face and doing some good
american (19/03/2011 1:46:35 PM): i don't think that can happen. gaddafi is no mubarak, who actually might be able to stay.
paul (19/03/2011 1:46:39 PM): plan a - plan c were elaborated by saif
american (19/03/2011 1:46:47 PM): who is saif?
paul (19/03/2011 1:46:55 PM): gaddafi's english-speaking son
american (19/03/2011 1:47:20 PM): i'm confused. you have communicated with the son of gaddafi?
paul (19/03/2011 1:47:26 PM): attempted to, yes
paul (19/03/2011 1:47:30 PM): made a lot of effort to, in fact
american (19/03/2011 1:47:34 PM): you mean through email?
paul (19/03/2011 1:47:44 PM): yes - feedback on his website
paul (19/03/2011 1:47:53 PM): read my latest blog post to see how much effort i made
paul (19/03/2011 1:48:21 PM): latest post is about effort i made on 27th feb
paul (19/03/2011 1:48:25 PM): 27-28th feb
american (19/03/2011 1:48:34 PM): unfortunately, he did not seem like an honest broker. he might be using social media to increase the perception that he is open to criticism and suggestions, but doing so deceptively
paul (19/03/2011 1:48:49 PM): sure. my plan doesn't rely on him being an honest broker
paul (19/03/2011 1:49:03 PM): i explicitly tell him its for lulz
american (19/03/2011 1:50:47 PM): I think I meant that he would be unlikely to listen to you, since he doesn't actually care what people outside of his immediate circle of influence think. I also doubt he would be motivated by Anonymous troll-speak. He is a pretty well-educated, probably delusional, and fairly powerful (or was) person.
american (19/03/2011 1:51:12 PM): He probably wouldn't take time to talk to someone on the internet with a plan. Sounds like it was clever though.
paul (19/03/2011 1:51:30 PM): it doesn't take long to read
american (19/03/2011 1:52:20 PM): well, still a very exciting time for the region, and a very bad time to be a dictator.
paul (19/03/2011 1:52:47 PM): not if he follows my advice
american (19/03/2011 1:53:34 PM): paul, i'm not sure the people of libya or the international community would be interested in saif or anyone from the gaddafi family maintaining power in any way; nor am I.
paul (19/03/2011 1:53:34 PM): he will walk away a hero of humanity
paul (19/03/2011 1:53:44 PM): i didn't say he would maintain power
american (19/03/2011 1:53:55 PM): you want him to kill his father?
paul (19/03/2011 1:53:58 PM): nope
paul (19/03/2011 1:54:05 PM): it should only take 5 minutes to read
american (19/03/2011 1:54:08 PM): you want him to convince his father to stepdown?
paul (19/03/2011 1:54:09 PM): let me get the exact link
paul (19/03/2011 1:54:10 PM): nope
paul (19/03/2011 1:54:14 PM): well, not quite
american (19/03/2011 1:54:28 PM): paul, I don't think gaddafi listens to his son
paul (19/03/2011 1:54:44 PM): it's more whether he listens to me
american (19/03/2011 1:54:48 PM): i think he's nuts and incredibly eager to hold on to power
paul (19/03/2011 1:55:07 PM): http://antisubjugator.blogspot.com/2011/02/plan-d-for-libya.html
paul (19/03/2011 1:55:14 PM): please spend 5 minutes on that radical idea
american (19/03/2011 1:55:59 PM): but paul, why would the son of libyan leader momar gaddafi speak to someone he's never met over the internet? even if you had a genius idea, why would you expect that he would take the time to hear it, let alone implement it?
american (19/03/2011 1:56:03 PM): i'll take a look.
american (19/03/2011 1:56:18 PM): link didn't work btw
paul (19/03/2011 1:56:23 PM): what?
american (19/03/2011 1:56:26 PM): k, did now
paul (19/03/2011 1:56:35 PM): sheesh. don't scare me.
paul (19/03/2011 1:56:49 PM): if you read my latest blog post, you'll see why that statement of yours scared me
american (19/03/2011 1:57:14 PM): paul i'm going to go for a bit. thanks for the link. cheers for now.
paul (19/03/2011 1:57:17 PM): http://antisubjugator.blogspot.com/2011/03/fascist-australia-part-1.html
paul (19/03/2011 1:57:23 PM): that's the latest
paul (19/03/2011 1:57:28 PM): ok, when will you be back?
paul (19/03/2011 1:57:41 PM): i believe your brain is crucial for current developments
paul (19/03/2011 1:57:53 PM): even if you aren't aware of it
paul (19/03/2011 1:57:57 PM): god is speaking through you
paul (19/03/2011 1:58:10 PM): i need to see your reaction
paul (19/03/2011 1:58:25 PM): so that i can process it and figure out the next step in the jigsaw puzzle
american has signed out. (19/03/2011 1:59 PM)

I was going to immediately go to the Russian consulate to see if I could get asylum:


because 0.01% is way too big to risk world freedom over.

But the trouble is I have another conspiracy-busting plan already in motion, so now I need to choose between two different conspiracies.

I have organized a sign that says "Australia send air support to Libyan rebels now!" plus my blog address. Plus a Chinese-writing headband that says "democracy". I was going to use both of these things at the (wikileaks/manning) rally tomorrow at 11am Sydney time at Town Hall. If I defect now, I will miss out on the chance to see if that poster has any effect as far as getting ideas on my blog more coverage. The sign was from before the UN vote. So I'm planning on adding "IRAN +" and "SYRIA +" to the "LIBYAN" bit (ie don't wait for the UN - take immediate action). The chances of that protest sign making a difference are probably 0.02%, and I can STILL get the Russian side of things if I don't get arrested by the feds. As such, I think it is more appropriate to hold the defection off until tomorrow sometime. And I guess I don't need to defect so much as I just need the Russians to confirm what the internet looks like from their side of the fence, using communication equipment that can't be intercepted by the Australian government.
