A man builds a fine house; and now he has a master and a task for life; he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair, -- for the rest of his days. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
'Home sweet home', 'my home is my castle', or 'there is no place like home', are just some of the widely held aphorism's when it comes to emphasising our sentiment for what is broadly denoted to housing as a place of safety, shelter and refuge. When the first paradigm shift from savages to barbarians flushed our Pleistocene ancestors out of their caves, (or off their trees) shacking for survival took on a whole new dimension. Apart from nomads or the destitute, buildings became the emblematic appraisal of social status, individuality, purpose, personality, vanity, ego, and image.
Our back to the future approach in co-housing is a functional synthesis of tribal communion and residential comfort zone. We don’t need private homes as affirmation or prestige. Our fundamental sanctuary is the whole enclave, but we never the less need our privacy and personal domain.
We are not a human institution or hive animals like most communes with communal bath-house, TV-room, dorms and regimented leisure facilities. We want our own sacrosanct privacy our own bookshelf and our own time to go to town and have our own fun if and whenever we want to. One does not have to be social to be compassionate and respect others and if our restaurant is too busy at times you can order delivery and dine at home (once in a while it will be you doing the serving) There is no cultural traditional or financial restraint, just open freedom to explore new realms of cohabitation and living-environments.
We are unregulated, resourceful and creative with access to high quality materials, machinery and the latest construction developments. In other words the life-dream of every budding designer or eco-architect. When I say unregulated it probably precludes civilized destinations like Australia where building regulations are arbitrated through the maze of fossilized officialdom. Specifying to the rigid mould of mediocrity and rejecting the unconventional, meaning us. -- This is but one amongst other reasons for opting on more moderately governed and relaxed destinations where priorities are still focused on basic pragmatism.
Our reality is an elaborate miscellany of events interests, hobbies, leisure, innovation and productive contentment which will inevitably formulate a whole new scope of sociology and life-style. We don’t work for a living, we make a life out of living. Hence there is no segmented directive like work and play where we have to rely on our home as a cocoon for interpersonal refuge, stress relieve and personal safety. IOW , make the home the centre of our lives again – not the office. I am not an architect and there is no need for specialised knowledge anyway, but I can pitch some nifty nuggets when it comes to soaring perspectives. -- So let’s pursue a few avenues of Utopian castle building.
Our onus is on casual, low maintenance and streamlined functionality. It will be un-pretentious, un-solid, un-fenced, un-attached, un-cluttered and well, un-conventional. It will be modular, relocatable, and easy to set up. Like spherical domes, enclosed with space age sun-reflective materials would be what I consider a good start. Preferably set above ground level to provide ventilation as well as to alleviate the need for concrete slabs and divided by natural undulation and extensive landscaping for privacy.
And no, I haven’t been watching too many sci-fi movies, -- let me suggest some analogies. Spherical superstructure is and has always been the most popular option in non-western domestication since time immemorial. From Eskimo land to the deepest African jungle, from the Taj-Mahal to the Pantheon, from the primitive to the ostentatious and last but not least the universe itself from the humble atom to our own cerebral sanctuary. "Nature insists on things being round," Ed McAllen proclaims. "Look and you'll notice that no animal builds its home square except man".
It comprises the strongest most spacious, free-span under-roof structure, as well as the swiftest assembly and relocation modus. Bundles of 50mm steel-piping and bulk rolls of solar-weave or similar, is all the material we need and a roll bender and PVC welder for processing. The rest is some hand-tools and whatever clamping system we choose to lock it together.
It is light-weight, clean and sizeable. It is tried and proven by nature and man-kind and adapted to western urbanity with modern materials. Like a high-tech Tepee. For added individuality one can throw some netting over it and have it covered by flowering vines which would also provide visual enhancement, shade, and sound-insulation. And before you say “but what about all my things” rest assured it is of course up to the individual how to adorn and customise your personal domain. There are internal walls for your paintings and there will be ample room for your piano. -- Although it would be more cherished in our restaurant where we can all sing along. (to John Lennon’s : IMAGINE ….)
As far as the layout goes, depends initially on how skillful we chose our topographic orientation. Ideally this would be a rise or hill overlooking the ocean and sloping down to a beach or lagoon with a jetty and esplanade where all our social utilities like community center, restaurant, hospital, administration, school, shops, bars, art galleries etc. would be located. This will be equivalent to the village square or promenade where we can party, socialise and be merry. To avoid hierarchy and privilege we should preserve the best area for our civic domain with private dwellings stacked into the hill-side.
Unobtrusive design, location and creative landscaping should retain visual serenity and beauty of nature, as well as individual space to oneself. Higher up a man-made lake could further enhance recreation and by the same token secure adequate water supply with a bit of aqua farming and hydro power thrown into the equation. In fact abundant water is the most essential resource and should be mandatory in choosing our final location. Lesser attractive areas could be assigned for commercial utilities like tech shack, motor pool farming, processing or research facilities. Horticultural landscaping can double up as food-supply by planting fruit trees, shrubs of nuts and berries or even ornamental vegetables for ground cover.
This may sound like an advertising brochure for a tropical tourist resort and who knows, we might be able to catch a bargain and buy or lease one. It would provide instant infra-structure with precisely the kind of facilities we have been envisaging. Ironically the reason why some are going broke would be exactly what makes them suitable for us, e.g. desolation or isolation. Destinations are streaming in and out of vogue at the erratic whim of global tourism and bankers loath surplus realty. Their default procedure is: repossess and auction. But who wants to buy a resort without tourists which could be a realistic assessment in few of global economic downturn.
Another inspiring option would be subterranean. If we can locate sand-stone formation it would be quite easy to excavate into a cliff-face which can be done without blasting and without the need for shoring or any internal support. -- Of course this would be the safest shelter providing natural air-con as well as sound and weather-proofing and when we look at Cappadocia in Turkey, Coober-Pedy or the ancient city of Petra with its elaborate luxurious layout, the mundane notion of cave dwelling takes on a whole new attribute. Particularly in view of new technologies and broad deductions of (structural) building-material.
Our most advantageous aspect is unlimited freedom to plan and govern future developments by capping the size of our population. This implies that we can right from the start calibrate utilities space and infrastructure to a max of 500 inhabitants without the random patchwork of runaway developments and outgrowing. It will be in stages but they are modules within a master plan like building blocks of a whole integrated living plan, pre-manufactured to a set norm and modular expandable.
This will also facilitate sustainable pace of process from the very outset into the indefinite future. -- The Eco village approach is about avoiding never ending band-aid solutions as well as the luxury of being able to throw everything out, and only retain the bits we want. There are very few constraints and the only limits are skills and imagination.
Community is a shared intent and should at any onward stages resemble a comprehensible microcosm of the whole of society. -- Small enough in human scale where people know each other and feel they can still have a say, and at the same time big enough to provide adequate diversity, fully featured infra-structure and sustainability. These are the major functions for normal living, leisure and commerce as well as productive diversity, shared knowledge and egalitarian justice.
Ongoing exchange with wider (external) society remains unchanged and essential, but on our own terms. Collective ownership as well as resource sharing creates by the same token unprecedented options of adjustment to different stages of life, ergo different needs. -- For instance, a single person would only need a smaller apartment where’s a family could then change over to a dwelling depending on the number of rooms. An older person on the other hand might be more suited for a little garden cottage or nursing facility. Again, modular and readily interchangeable.
A select community of five hundred individuals would be a fair estimate in order to sustain a manageable human equation and urban aspect. In case we should accede beyond, we just copy nature and branch out. If a termite colony becomes too congested a scouting division flies out (they even grow wings for this particular task) to establish a new hive. Like a franchise, same standards, same concept, everything except location. It could be a different climate zone for variety and we can even periodically migrate between them. We are interconnected, we do business together, become more prosperous, stronger and safer collectively but we have ‘separate bedrooms’ so to speak.
With our kind of housing we can evacuate, pack up and move like a circus within two days if necessary and the same goes for reassembling. We can choose to relocate for any reason like natural disaster wrong place change of political climate, better conditions? No big deal. -- We can literally ‘ship a town’ and there may not even be a final location in that respect. Home is inside our wagon-circle and so are our allegiances. -- We are universal dwellers which by its definitional aspect denotes a certain place and our Astrodome will always be where we chose to designate it.
No other form of co-existence including the hallowed family arrangement would be anywhere as adaptable, sustainable, independent, buoyant and safe. -- As you may have become aware of our Ark growing by the page,
I may as well concede intent in order to stress its relevance.
The means always become the end and this is why we need to regard the requisite of global mobility for safety, independence, and commerce. In other words, we need two legs to walk, run, jump, crouch, duck, hop and dance, and we also need two legs to escape, sustain, search and launch a new urban dimension with unparalleled stability and commercial success.
· Our town-ship or land leg, comprises our enclave, administration, and whatever is needed for a functioning municipality.
· Our ship-town or sea leg, is a vessel, big enough to accommodate the above 'if needed'. It is our urban ark and doubles as commercial enterprise and food provider.
· The dedicated land lobber will never have to set a foot on it, but we should all accept its equal priority.
Don’t fall prey to the romantic notion.....
of traditional 'Pleasantville' ambiance because this is exactly what we do not need. Small village life is painfully bias, racist, hypocritical and hard work. There is chronic unemployment, limited education, petty mistrust, and persistent feuding within the village, between the villages and the world beyond. Equally informative is the “Gilman Report”, concluding that sustainable communities are not a return to any previous period or way of life. - They are a distinctly post-industrial and likely even post-agricultural phenomenon and guided by:
· The new ecological constraints that grow out of high levels of population and technological capabilities.
· New techniques from better knowledge of ecosystems to renewable resources, free energy and new forms of human organisation.
· New levels of consciousness and awareness which echoes the following paragraph:
Social change requires mixed communities to adapt to rising challenges and become exuberant melting-pots for societal evolution. Away from the neurotic nature of lifestyle mono cultures in which valuable influences of expression are usually subdued and rejected. Diversity is therefore crucial and like any other eco-system it's the same with people by providing a positive change for individuals who would otherwise remain locked into a tedious routine.
The only sustainable social model in evolutionary history has been what visionaries now call bio-regionalism, comprised of numerous sustainable local communities. This is the modern synthesis of the Neolithic, Stone Age village with appropriate technology, renewable energy bicycles and a partnership model. (e.g. Anastasia)
"We are at a curious juncture in the history of human insanity; in the name of realism, men are quite mad, and precisely what they call utopian is now the condition of human survival." (C. Wright Mills)
"The world is now too dangerous for anything less" (Buckminster Fuller)
When “Thomas More” a sixteenth century visionary statesman defined the perfect society he coined the Greek term “UTOPIA”. It translates to “good (eu-) place” (topos) and “no (u-) place” which makes us true Utopians as long as we denote place as spiritual reality instead of real estate.
"A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth glancing at" (Oscar Wilde)
Utopia is a perfect society in a perfect environment but it cannot provide a perfect existence for an imperfect being. Therefore Utopia is more than a place, it is a state of being that fulfils both sides of human duality. But we are far from it. -- Just keep in mind that many of the worst genocidal human rights excesses of the last century were perpetrated under guise of creating a more perfect society on misguided Utopian perspectives.
"Without the Utopians of other times, men would still live in caves, miserable and naked ... Utopia is the principal of all progress and the essay into a better future. (Anatole France)
The future arrives on its own accord but mental progress obviously does not. We must surpass embedded assumptions and adopt socio-ecological principles in lieu with compassionate interpersonal tolerance, constructive imagination and 'selective tenure'. -- Utopian doesn’t mean unrealistic or planned. It means deliberate and conscious change from each according to acquisitioneach according to need within a self-governing affiliation of interdependent community. -- Enabling a group resolution based on individual needs, whereby the group becomes one. Ergo, we don't just use each other. Interdependence gives us the adaptive advantage of mutual synergy which means the ability to make 1+1=3. ( Mastermind) to
“Now, the gypsy-RV way of life may be one way to deal with the on-going melt-down of Too-Late Capitalism - but as for me, I'd prefer a nice anarchist monastery somewhere-a typical place for "scholars" to sit out the "Dark Ages". The more we organize this NOW the less hassle we'll have to face later. I'm not talking about "survival"-I'm not interested in mere survival. I want to thrive. BACK TO UTOPIA.” (Hakim Bey)
Despite their tainted reputation, Utopias are not mere flights of fancy but a social attitude based on provincial ethics austerity and dignity. -- It is therefore fair to conclude that when unrestrained by imposed limitations we can reach Utopian levels of intrinsic consciousness. Hence not a dream to be contemplated, but a vision to be perused. Once we can control and regulate conditioned thoughts, we can regain our own self-determination. Cocoon is a vision of a preferable place but one with a bridge that gets us from here to there....It doesn’t matter so much where we are going, as long as we are making consciously for some definite goal. And a Utopia, however strange or fanciful, is the only possible beacon in the uncharted seas of the distant future." (Hendrik Willem Van Loon)
It is also interesting to note that it was Francis Bacon's vision of Utopia based on inductive reasoning, responsibility and individual freedom, that was essentially the basis of the (original) US constitution.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.
No such thing....
There is this promulgated popular belief, or should I say myth without substance, that we become less active as we grow older. It is one of the hard realities that young people are advantaged because of attributed qualities. They can be daft and utterly useless, but they are the ones that buy cars, fashion, gadgetry and the whole bubbling overflow of spasmodic exuberance. -- They are the rabbits in the spotlight and our resourceful want-makers zoom in on them with all guns blazing for there are still not enough wars to keep our overproducing economy on the growth.
Passing the age of 60 puts us out of their range, even though most of our pension goes towards supporting our children, education, gifts, etc. After all we don’t need it anymore and should be ashamed going on a world cruise whilst our kids are struggling.
Society only rewards the fittest, so we are supposedly senile, backwards, conservative, and well, -- old. A bit like as soon as our hair turns white we become invisible. And we can’t really use the feeble adage of ‘times have changed’ because all the traditional banes from the good old days, like hypocrisy, bigotry, bias and racism are still dominant, and amongst them the archaic enigma of biological clockwork orange.
And we are also the ones responsible for creating this madcap circus of absurdities we are living in. We, the boomers, the ex movers and shakers and founders of our luminescent post-war transformation. We’ve proudly reached the end of our achieving journey and misconstrue our chosen stagnancy for a fair retirement because we are conditioned by history and the towering arrogance of youth which is traditional and hereditary. Let us be honest and look when we were young. 50 was an old fart and what would he know, 60 was geriatric, 70 was Jurassic and 80 was comatose.
And then it comes as a big shock when the truth finally dawns that every young person is just an older person waiting to happen, and always much sooner than anyone ever expects.
Only death is nature’s way of telling when to call it quits. In other words; don’t die before you’re dead. In the middle of the last century, psychology talked about the disengagement theory. You finished work, disengaged, tidied up your affairs and prepared to meet your maker....BS. So, in spite of what anybody else (including your kids) are trying to tell you, -- don’t listen. You are not too old. You are not senile, you’re not worn out and you aren’t useless doddery or gaga as long as your neurons are still firing.
I, for one, am not planning for retirement; the very concept feels alien to me and I don't consider myself 65 years old because some people choose to put a number on this thing called 'age'...
We can afford an affluent middle class life-style, proficient and free to do whatever one wants and chooses. In fact, statistically we are the smartest healthiest, richest and youngest bunch of woopies (well off older people) this world has ever seen.
Regardless of physical handicap, what counts is between your ears and this is what makes you useful. Of course some prefer being old because they’ve had it and want to be left in peace. It’s placid because nobody cares and if that’s your attitude then you are well and truly on the scrap-heap. -- It's peace and quiet all right, but for all the wrong reasons. They say wisdom comes with age, but often age comes alone and there is no point in tapping your foot when you no longer hear the music. When your Intellect is reduced to mental bubble gum (TV), your passion vanished and (self-imposed) cerebral impediment puts you on death-row long before your biological clock stops ticking. (But I also know some 40 year olds who’d fit that mold.)
It is an unfortunate truth that the worst form of poverty is not physical nor material, it is loneliness and herein lays the most tragic conclusion to our disproportional penchant for youth and throw away mentality: You’ve at long last learned all about life. Gone through the trail’s and tribulations of joy and misery. The tilted bumpy playing field of carrier, achievement and the senseless horrors of war and conflict.
You made many mistakes and learned from them. You have worked out what’s important and sorted out your hormones, the bullshit and the difference between good and bad.
You have finally reached an inspirational level of wisdom, knowledge and experience which ostensibly is the goal of all learning and you are more than willing to share it around and pass it on. -- But nobody wants it. You finally have all the answers but no one asks the questions.
This to me is the most infuriating squander of human resources and we are going to tap into this neglected store-house of compiled experience, wisdom and knowledge, for shared benefits and mutual reward. There are no traditional roles and no change of life-style from active to retirement, ergo you can retain your self esteem your dignity -- and our gratitude.
To give an example : somebody with a sound farming background would have that priceless acquired gut feeling which only comes with time. If we want to trail with new fangled bio-tech developments we would also have the counterbalancing caution and profound wisdom of someone who knows the basics by heart, to ensure that it is all done conscientiously. And last but far from least, a living record who still remembers what air, water, fish and forests were like before degradation took its toll.
The result is a harmonic convergence of knowledge and cutting edge progress. Unshackled by bureaucratic pollution and industrial monopoly.
A retired judge, barrister or doctor would have a lifetime of precedence, tactical solutions, strategies, remedies and diagnosis, forged on the hard anvil of experience in collaboration with our younger professionals. The same goes for art, science music etc.. You have the relevant proficiency to encounter talents amongst us and it is you with enough calmness and tolerance to coach and cultivate. -- Our most valuable resources are our children and the few older people who’ve managed to retain their integrity and take the time and effort to pass it on to our younger generation.
"Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first and the lesson afterwards" (Vernon Sanders Law)
Its old dogs and children
(and watermelon wine)
You may be familiar with the heartening lyrics to this lovely song from Tom T. Hall but next time you hear it, this is what it means....
Being with old folks connects children to the deeper wisdom and spirit which is ever present and vital to our personal growth. The first five years of our life determine our personal development, but unfortunately this is also the time when parents are going through the peak of what we call ‘achievingphase’ in the cut-throat arena of work, career, business, social engagements and entertainment. -- Children have never been so cut off from others and so forced to accept substitutes, and a toddler watching TV with nursery rhymes replaced by advertising jingles has now become an accepted aspect of infancy.
My personal childhood was similar as far as parental aspirations go. They were at the time flat out building up a business and I have no recollection of playful attention, guidance or maternal intimacy. -- Nevertheless, I was lucky. I had a village full of other kids to play with and most importantly I had a grandfather. -- Of my early formative years I always remember gramps teaching me about nature, and what’s right from wrong or good from bad. Only my beloved granddad explained tirelessly why homework was important, it was him who told me not to worry when I was bullied or beaten in sports and it was him who taught me responsibility by bringing home a puppy to look after. Summed up briefly, it was to his credit that I grew up to become a decent person.
In our discontinuous society grandparents have become an encumbrance. Abandoned warehouse people, shelved in retirement homes and waiting to ‘move on’ whilst their proud sons and daughters visit once in a while with photographs of their grandchildren. The kids have more important things to do and you never really got to know each other anyway. Back in tribal-land the elders were always consulted when knowledge and advise was needed. They knew the cycles of nature and they taught their grand children how to craft canoes or find honey whilst their ambitious fathers were out raiding neighborhood villages.
This hasn’t changed as far as parents go but for our kids it’s day-care centers, baby-sitters, mint-flavored Ritalin, TV and thereafter substance abuse, violence and crime. By then they are despicable brats, or juvenile delinquents reflecting only the vacuum of decency in our society. -- But never a notion about stunted adolescence alas confused, neglected and irate young humans, emotionally crippled and morally impoverished by shoddy parenting.
“Wisdom begins in wonder” said Socrates. -- The magic, innocence, and mystery of a child’s soul are the seeds of creativity. It can be devastating to its own future and society when ignored and crippled, or it can create genius when nurtured coached and guided by wisdom which translates to “judgment based on facts, common sense, experience and information”. And this wisdom comes with age.
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
The philosophy which does not laugh,
And the greatness which does not bow before children.
They don’t know racism until we program it into their little heart-disc and their mind is as pure as fallen snow until we stuff it up because we don’t know better. Because the same was done to us, because we are ignorant and because we lack wisdom. -- Is a social worker with six weeks training really more of an expert on juvenile behavior than an eighty year old who has raised three generations? apparently so, but I'm not convinced.
We need you because our children do. They need your selfless tolerance and your patient generosity you didn’t have at the time for your own offspring when you were young and ambitious, and immature. They don’t distinguish between biological ownership and embrace love spontaneously and unconditionally.
And it works both ways. You’ve done all there was in pursuit of personal achievement and material ambitions. Your mind is clear, your perception is stable and at ease with worldly matters. You have reached inner peace, you are trustworthy and naturally you love children on a spiritual affinity. Understanding each other intuitively like back to front soul-mates without the tripe in between. You can manifest decency in their playable minds while character formation is still in flux and before it gels which is the only hope for our future generation because we have more important things to do, -- so it seems.
The noose of predestination
It might be of interest....
to learn that according to life insurance research a 65 year old retiree has a statistical life expectancy of 18 months. Says it all doesn’t it. -- And this is what turns our achieving journey quite literally into a dead end road. The facts are beyond reproach; keeping up with the fusillade of change and progress, as well as competition within work and social environment takes its toll and the first casualty is our mind. The transition comes too late for mental re-alignment. -- We've become well and truly surplus.
A belated reality check will bounce because our intellectual overdraft has expired. We have not only defaulted on physical health but also expended our mental capacity to adapt and to recapture the true spirit of life. We are redundant, and even if we make it past the 18 months it will only be life-support and acrimonious exit. The mind remains rooted in the super-annuated past along with patronizing bigotry, indignant rectitude and insinuating mistrust. -- And this is not even considering the inestimable vagaries of future developments with hitherto undreamed challenges and radical fundamental change of just about everything we’ve grown used to.
We are now confronted with the greatest transformation of human affairs in known history and when people are talking about the end-times, well, this is the end times. But it is only the end of the corrupted world as we know it while a new world based on new value systems is already being born with external reference points crumbling and stability re-manifesting from within.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were? We know aging when we see it, but it’s actually very hard to measure until it's over. We are faced with an awful lot of people who are too tired to live and too afraid to die. -- The keyword is adaptability. Many in their fourties are already dead just waiting for the body to catch up and delaying their funeral to seventy five. -- They succumb to the mundane mechanics of survival, career, family and mortgage. From there it’s just heart attack in slow motion.
Adaptability is going to hold precedence over this planetary renewal and has nothing to do with education, fitness or age as long as we amend our attitude and mental dexterity. What I am saying is, don’t just hang in for money and privilege and turn into the trite and stale persona you vowed never to become. Death is not the greatest loss of life, the greatest loss is what dies inside while we live. -- Gear down with fifty and salvage your adaptability, don’t even think in terms of retirement and focus on the journey. This is another straitjacket we need to rid ourselves of. The last chance to re-substantiate intellect and clear the cobwebs, if your dreams are still alive.
Get in touch with your true self and become the person you know you are. Throw out the pesky answering machine of conditioned cliché and live life the way one always thinks one should have when it’s too late. Nobody has ever been known lamenting at their deathbed “I wish I would have spent more time at work”. Hypothesise on your priority allocation if you were diagnosed with terminal cancer. -- Most are lapsing into paradoxical denial as I have experienced with one of my best friends with only three months left to live. -- He even kept working as if nothing would change.
“You can't stay young forever but you can be immature for the rest of your life”. I.e, Maturity is to the soul what health is to the body. Growing old is mandatory growing up is optional, hence, age and maturity are two profoundly different aspects. Every animal grows old but maturity is an exclusive human privilege of which only very few take advantage. It means exploration of life’s intrinsic principle and the closer you get to its core the further you distance yourself from death. Until you reach the sense that death is nothing but a change of place, body, or form, within
the carbon cycle that keeps us all going. Ergo, life ends in death only for those who can't see beyond it.
..... Says Anastasia. "When you go to sleep overwhelmed by heavy, dark and unpleasant thoughts, you will most likely have a nightmare. If you go to sleep with bright thoughts, you will have pleasant dreams".
Wisdom of the age is not inner peace by subdued resignation. -- It is essentially about the calming balance of priorities, emotions and aspirations, after riding the hurdy-gurdy of opulence and entertainment. Think it over and forget about geezerhood. Every day above ground is a gift and it’s not how old you are, its rather 'how' you are old, therefore age can't dominate your spirit unless you allow it. We have many examples of oldies who continue to be vibrant because they continue to stay young. The trick is to mature without growing old.
Consider the appreciation and mental reward gained by passing on your accumulated wisdom in return for a stress-free healthy and stimulating environment, rather than just submit to the slow comfortable suicide you find yourselves in. Last but not least think about the looming boredom and corrosive agony of loneliness.
The right thing to do is to do the right thing.
What should also appear in bold.....
and underlined on our priority schedule is that regardless of how frail and reliant we might become on the home-run, there will never and I mean never ever be the conclusion of an institutional nursing home. We are family and we will look after each other no matter what. -- The highest form of wisdom is kindness and the moral and ethical fiber of society is tested by how it treats its under-privileged. -- What does it say about us as a culture when our older folks are treated as disposable husks, barely worthy of the dignity and care that many lavish on their pets. -- Visiting a nursing home would have to be the most heart-wrenching encounter in view of social isolation, medical abuse and our own certainty of ending up in an equally morbid environment.
Although this should go without saying, but it truly grieves me every time I see the misery of advancing impairment, talked to in condescending plural by carers with the bedside manners of an undertaker. Vegetating in drug-induced stupor and squalidly anticipating the bleak dismay of mortal expiry or merciful OD, whatever comes first. -- In fact many of these patients do not have dementia at all. Their memory loss, confusion, and delirium are predominantly caused by ‘polypharmacy,’ which means giving a patient too many different prescription drugs! Old age disabilities are part of life and nothing but the reversal of our own beginning where we also depended on help and care to evolve from infancy to adolescence.
It will require a medical environment to assist through the final stages but it will be a friendly natural place. Surrounded by familiar faces where our (your) children you helped so much while you were able to and who love you for it, can visit spontaneously.
A place where you can retain your dignity and accept the fact of someone having to wipe your bum as reciprocal for you have helped others before. And it is a place where you can call it quits at your own discretion without medical intervention to prolong the pain. -- On the whole a good place to live and a good place to die.
So, if you are what mainstream defines as over the hill but with your wits still about, intellectually on the ball and intrigued by this proposition, then we can assure you equal consideration but under one condition. You have to do your own soul-searching. -- We are not a retirement home.
Like everybody else, you’d have to participate in mutual obligation, but in return you will be loved respected and appreciated likewise and if you can accept that, we’d be more than happy to hear from you.
The myth of mortality
don't worry about dying, you'll live through it...
The greatest conundrum concerning each and every individual is the quixotic anxiety of death and dying and the inexplicable thereafter (most don’t even know what they are hereafter) People’s inability to come to terms with their own mortality is one of the main causes of a great deal of evilness and misery.
Many have no scruples murdering innocent defenseless human beings with privileged impunity, but how come what every dim-witted proxy-warrior dishes out luridly on a daily basis turns into shock horror as soon as the joke is on them? -- Death, whether it be by mandated homicide (war), violence, sickness, old age or McDonald's is invariably final within our conceptual pigeon-hole of linear sequence. -- Linear in the implicate order is a beginning and an end, whatever we experience in between is life and that’s all there is, or is there? Is life worth dying for? Or is death worth living for? metaphysically speaking, we are in fact dead right now. We died prior to reincarnation to be reborn into the light upon our earthly exit. Or to say that the body is our coffin, that we wake up when we die, that it is 'more real' in the afterlife and that it is 'less real' here. -- Wish I'd know.
Well, the jury’ is still out on what’s coming and as long as the mystery of the beyond remains frightening and mesmerising, we will keep averting any non-scientific clarification for our terrestrial attendance. Death is part of life and every end a new beginning . We only upgrade our mortal clay. Birth-growth-death-renewal, so, what’s there to worry about? we are all co-creators of reality and life is our school for development and reason. Just another lesson in the cosmic classroom. Perhaps this is why the light- beings tell us again and again that the purpose is to learn. If we don’t get it, we just have to repeat the term – and repeat – and repeat ....
Another intriguing angle is: How do we undo our conditioning? after all, un-conditioning our conditioning is what the whole spiritual seeker thing is all about. Eventually the mercy of rebirth allows death so that our conditioning is sufficiently erased wherefrom we can wake up and start all over again. -- Simple really. I know this may sound corny, but what if I was to tell you that you never have to die again as long as you live, which is ultimately interminable. There is no segmentation, just universal truth and freedom beyond men and all his pettiness of religion and dogma.
Two interconnecting profound misconceptions are dividing us from eternal peace, spiritual contentment and blissful harmony. Both of them were evilly embedded into our subconscious trust-and-belief system to verify ‘enthroned’ interests in sinister historic agendas culminating right into the here and now. -- This is the very history that we have to end in order to stop it from ending us, and I mean here and now. Two laws to follow and you are on the right track: 'Question authority' and 'think for yourselves'.
First misconception: ‘separation versus wholeness’ which is more or less self-explanatory in light of exploitation / affiliation, fragmentation / symbiosis, drugs / wellness, work / play, etc. but more than anything the separation of spiritual harmony and wholeness with nature, uncared for in preference of soulless, hedonistic indulgence and amoral materialism. This is the state that the powers to be intend to maintain and unless there is a complete and utter transformation of the human psyche, we’ll be facing the ensuing linear conclusion of geocidal cataclysm in the near future. Second misconception: ‘linear versus cyclic’. The time-energy flow is perfectly tuned to lunar timing like every other frequency modulated process by which nature is governed. From our own terrestrial ecosystem, to the solar system, galaxy and beyond, it is apparent that all of nature functions in a cyclical manner..
Ancient cultures suchlike the mythical Druids, the Mayans, Egyptians, Incas, or the Indians from antiquity up to 1582 survived in sync with the harmonious order of 28 day 13 month natural time. -- Then came Pope Gregory. He obediently fabricated artificial dis-synchronous frequency by the mechanisation of time (clock) to disconnect humanity from nature and thus its spiritual affinity. -- And all of God's children said Amen!
The vibrational shift from lunar time to solar time ergo cyclic to linear or in human understandings from right brain feminine creativity and art to the left brain culture of order efficiency and statistics.
This diabolical scam was nothing but an instrument of the (Jesuit) Vatican to distort and control the mind of the human species. - And look how well they've succeeded. Alienated from the natural cycles, the Gregorian or ‘church calendar’ is now the exclusively inescapable chronology of global capitalism. Money has since become the witless determination of time, and its frenzied worship the be-all end-all of our neurotic existence. This leads us to now, where we stand isolated from nature and each other, bound by time and locked into a society of slaves to the clock.
I am not suggesting to change our calendar per se which would render dealing with mainstream a logistic nightmare and neither do we have to, as long as we are consciously aware of the fundamental truth behind it. As long as we are aware of the spiritual confusion in linear programming. As long as we are aware of (and live by) the natural order of cyclic rebirth, and as long as we are aware of wholeness and oneness versus separation. Wholeness is not the sum of its atoms, it is the cosmic order of their interactions but (and that’s what really counts) ‘structured by the whole’
"To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour."
Visitors and holidays
Even though we’ll try to keep outside the square.....
doesn’t mean we segregate. -- There is no obligation to attend in person as long as you call it HOME. You can take breaks or if you decide to leave altogether that’s all right too. There is no contractual obligation and our doors are always open should you reconsider after a change of conditions.
We may leave home as we know it, but we still keep in touch with friends and loved ones. They will want to visit and we as your extended family welcome them equally as long as they pull their weight in regards to CS which is only fair, for nobody including ourselves has the right to sponge on our system.
As we are premised on common decency, any abusive or otherwise abrasive misdemeanor is profoundly unsettling, destabilizing and plain nuisance. Remember! this is what we want to leave behind. We are an (O) free zone and any friends or relatives resembling one should make other arrangements to see you.
If we, on the other hand feel like a C-change, there’s no limit to travel and visit foreign destinations. There is no job to lose, no business tying you down, no cat to be fed, no financial restraints and no shortage of overseas local contacts due to our pan-global alliance. There will be trade fares, business trips fact finding missions, conventions, lectures, courses, seminars, scientific events, workshops, studies and as the future unfolds and the world keeps shrinking, manifold emerging options to satisfy the most avid traveler.
And if it’s just plain for leisure there is always somebody with knowledge and connections to provide us with the real thing instead of commercial tourism. -- Lets say you want to go skiing where your standard option is to book with your travel agent, take your designated time off, work hard for it and go with the lemmings.
I grew up in the Austrian Alps and believe me this is as good as it gets. I have friends and relatives from ski instructors to hotel owners and they’d go out of their way to give you the local treat which beats the rubberneck scene hands down. And they in turn would relish a chance to visit a Pacific paradise with reciprocal hospitality.
We encourage to travel and move about. It widens our horizon and it can only be productive in every aspect as long as we are travelers and not tourists. Wherever we go we bring back ideas, and creative imagination is what the future is all about. A new dynamic brand of thinking, based on resourceful leisure and mindful rejuvenation. Indeed the profound secret of ultimate success is to turn vocation into vacation.
Same principle applies to commerce, international networking and biz in general. If we decide on overseas joint venture, naturally our first choice would be a home country of one of our companions who is familiar with local demand, negotiation, culture, customs, marketing and mentality.
We are a global conglomerate with various home-countries and unlimited destinations to chose, as well as literally hundreds of communities like us, open and interested to learn and expand on our universal mission of love and planetary kinship. I hope this will disperse any preconceived notion of communal rigor or self-imposed isolation. We live light and the same goes for travel.
If anything we will be far more flexible worldly and freewheeling than any bandwagoneer hampered by traditional baggage. -- And that is without mentioning our Sea-leg. Only outer space is the limit what we can do with a large vessel full of relaxed likeminded kin-ship. (and yes, pun intended for this may even be its name) It is our freedom, escape, survival, work and play machine all wrapped into one and too exciting and diverse to be included in this chapter.
We’ve literally been Bushwhacked....
headlong into a totalitarian Big-Brother world regime and Push may quite unsubtly come to shove by just attracting some unbecoming attention. I only want to disperse any misconception about our motive and come what may, we must never harbor any seditious inclinations. -- And there is also no need to even contemplate along those lines.
We don’t want to start a movement, we just want to be left alone, but we are beyond the mundane and outside the square, so unless you believe the official version of ‘Waco’ you’d know what I mean. Although it would appear difficult keeping such a low profile within national margins there is still a save option for independence without flirting with the contentious prospect of stepping onto any imperial toes. -- We are a multi-national coalition and not eligible for combined residency in any state or country, wherefore we need an international domain which can only be in outer space or international waters. Such as, a floating micro nation or in other words a very big SHIP.
Pessimistically speaking there will always remain the Damocles sword of the NWO hanging over us whereby there would be no 'Internationality' period. -- There is already talk about a “law of the sea treaty” and the Somali piracy may provide grounds for all sorts of ‘implementations’, but that's a chance we have to take. -- It may not come about.
Meanwhile this will be our communal URL (Universal Resource Location) and business domain which is not a problem by today’s technology even if our corporate infrastructure is on main-land. It is of course as you already know much more than that, but as far as freedom and autonomy goes, this is the furthest we can dissociate ourselves from bureaucracy, politics and jurisdiction. Ships are bound by ‘flag of convenience’ on operational standards but otherwise unrestricted apart from international fishing laws drug and arms trafficking or poaching etc. - If one countries law no longer suits us, we simply switch flags. -- I am not going to deny my personal affection for it, but it goes far beyond romantic notions when we consider all the principal aspects and applications. It would fill a book to expound on its full potential but let us just explore a few conceivable avenues through our floating planetary village.
1. LIFESTYLE: A closer look at some up market travel brochures reveals how much people spend for just a glimpse of the enticing worldliness of ocean cruising -- and even though it want be all ballroom glamour and love-boat romance, it is still intensely exhilarating and beats the heck out of what most of us are doing right now to make a crust. -- Our CS may have you peeling potatoes or mopping the deck once in a while but what ever else we are engaged in will be profoundly enthralling and beyond our wildest dreams. There will be no friction because there is no obligation to participate. You can get off and fly home or fly in and log on as you please -- but most likely there will be a waiting list. Depending on size we can even accommodate visitors or family members as long as they participate and whatever its dimension may be, I am confident to find a way of making it earn its keep.
2. TRANSPORT: Our land and sea-base will be inextricably intertwined by industrial necessity social integration food supply and geographic mobility. A pragmatic equation requires foremost a sound strategic location for our land-base with deep water anchorage and convenient access. Our vessel will be 80% stationary which not only reduces our running costs, it also provides accommodation and infra-structure for new-comers and visitors. And while we are talking running costs -- if Club-Mediterranean can stick sails on a cruise-liner then so can we. We are never in a hurry and there are always prevailing trade winds to push us along nicely. Wind, Sun and wave power-generation goes without saying.
There are literally thousands of suitable destinations for our land-base. We just have to find one and a leasehold would be our preferred option compared to costly and constraining freehold acquisitions. Transport equals mobility, and flexibility is our urban policy in regards to incidental contingencies or strategic relocation. Our housing concept is modular and so are our utilities. Should there be danger requiring immediate and profound action, we just pick up our marbles and float into the sunset. We have the biggest highway in the world, it is full of food and it is also the biggest moat in the world. We are not in the business of fighting windmills and our main concern is safety and survival. Being prepared is our responsibility meaning literally the ability to respond.
The more energy invested in group survival the more synergy is created. The more energy invested in individual response, the weaker the resolve. The difference between crisis and disaster is whether or not to be ready.
As any experienced skipper would tell you: the safest place to survive a storm is off-shore and if the world goes apeshit we team up with others and become sea gypsies. Tie up and ride it out. Nobody can save us but us, and there is no guarantee, -- but neither is there a better chance.
"If you are believing that your government is going to protect you, your media is going to inform you, or your health system is going to heal you, you couldn't be more wrong". (US Health Secretary on Avian -Flu)
Transport also plays an extensive part in food supply. With adequate freezer capacity and processing facilities we can supply our land-base and ourselves with enough delicious seafood to be self-sufficient and trade any excess. Needless to say that there are enough divers and fishermen amidst us to create a substantial income-sideline as well as employment. Other interesting and lucrative nautical ventures like treasure salvage, survey contracts, aqua farming, film and documentary shoots also require extensive loading capacity for heli-pad, subs, amphibious vehicles, fuel and whatever else we may come up with.
3. RESEARCH : Another related fact is that we know more about the dark side of the moon, than we do about our oceans or inner planet where 90% of earthly life resides. Therefore it comes as no surprise that billions of dollars are dedicated to joint international, and commercial research projects which are tendered to whoever has the equipment, expertise and scientific credentials. These tenders are assigned by universities, military, fisheries department, impact studies, exploration, mapping etc. I happen to know of a skipper who started with a game-fishing boat and landed a research contract to monitor parasitic coral-infestations. He now operates 3 research vessels and cruises from one lucrative assignment to the next. Good reputation, professional approach, connections and honest conduct will almost guarantee continuous involvement and subsequently increase standard, diversification, knowledge and experience.
The same principal applies for assembling our intellectual resources. Scientists, marine biologists, nautical engineers, divers and skippers or whatever other required faculty, may initially come in on a contract, but some of them are inspirationally devoted and not solely lured by money. After sampling our concept and considering life-style and environment, chances are that they may remain aboard. Their kids are safe and looked after and the additional bonus of intellectual like-mindedness presents a tantalizing proposition for all involved. Our initial intent is to assemble knowledge, expertise and general savior-faire which would then be gained by conclusive progression instead of prospective recruitment.
This will likewise dovetail with education by formulating a whole panacea of self generating faculties like oceanography, engineering, science, and hospitality, on a flexible learn-as-we-go hands-on program. We integrate learning on a cadetship roster where spirited participation is the key to intuitive knowledge and growth development. In fact this whole objective could develop into a floating university with outside students jointly co- operating with mainstream tertiary institutions on specialised tasks. The list is endless, -- as long as it is integral to our collective wellness.....
Apart from contract assignments we can also undertake our own projects. Research, and innate future focus is going to warrant an endless supply of emerging technologies. There will be the best and latest of everything because we are expertly and knowledgeably equipped to handle, test or improve on it and therefore get it for free or even charge in exchange for our endorsement. Right now, billions are literally poured into sub-marine colonising research ranging from ocean farming, mineral exploration and mobility to the futuristic extent of artificial gills for humans. 70% of our planet is water and cities in the sea as one of many ventures projected by my personal visionary hero Jacque Fresco are the next step well worth looking into.
'Alvin Toffler' anticipated the four main categories influencing our future as : INFORMATION, OUTER-SPACE, OCEANOLOGY and BIO-TECHNOLOGY. In his book 'Third Wave'. -- They will be like everything else closely interrelated and commercially integral with our aquatic base. He predicts floating cities, production platforms, and amphibian colonies, as well as mobile communities made up of breakaway secessionists forming their own independence. -- And believe me this is not fantasy, it is happening now. The future is manifesting and the only reason why we still don’t feel the full impact is because it isn’t interrelating as yet. This is not a matter of when, it is a matter of how soon and if we are not riding the wave we'll find ourselves beneath it.
"The tide which raises all boats will come and we must all either sink or swim" Our approach to what follows will be to identify those streams of change and anticipate where and when they merge to form this gigantic third wave. -- It will be unprecedented and everybody will recognise it, but we will be ready. It seems to be nature's way that waves crest just before they break and we make sure to have a large enough board so we can ride the white water of these uncertain times together. The sooner we define it the easier it will be to get on. First in best dressed and a comfy head-start comes in handy by the time mainstream twigs on to it.
If this seems a tad overwhelming, keep in mind that future focus means defining, anticipating and debating probabilistic long-range assumptions about rate and directions of change. (opportunity gap) -- There might be risks but they are calculated with much better odds than the risks we face by doing nothing or clinging to the runaway bandwagon.
In colloquial terms let’s just say ‘ she ought to be big’.....
but how big is big. -- It is a quintessential structural priority and size becomes a logistic conclusion based on our conceptual vision for scope and demand. It will have to provide us with income, food-supply, shelter, self-defense, quarantine, safety, transport, lifestyle, education, pleasure, mobility and most importantly to accommodate our entire land-based community. -- In case of TSHTF.
It is not an immediate requirement but never the less a substantial part of our master-plan and firmly embedded within its conceptual foundation. Unconventional approach, flexible ingenuity and objective contemplation is what ordains the proportional order and what it means in simple terms, well you may have already guessed it, a LINER. But wait! before you quiz my temerity (marbles) Relax, read on and deliberate .
The emerging mass-tourism of the last decades has rewired the whole concept of the cruise-ship industry and demands on technology, standard, size and opulence are superseding faster than they can build them. (Hyundai builds one every week compared to just 10 in the whole of the 60s). The future trend is to transform floating resorts into destinations in their own right and 200 mega-ton vessels are already under negotiation. In an industry dominated by the battle of the superlatives the accelerated growth in numbers and sizes is corroborated by the fact of 700-1000 big ships from tankers, destroyers and carriers to merchant-ships and cruise-liners being scrapped annually. They are sold for scrap-value and most of them end up at Alang Beach in India or in China where they are beached and cut to shreds by an army of destitute ship-breakers. Any waste with no commercial value is burned on site or dumped into the sea. -- Some survive as floating hotels but bottom line is obsolescence because they can’t be re-commissioned for other applications. -- They are too large for tourism, impractical as ferries and unsuitable for cargo.
Revised operational standards and regulations for commercial passenger vessels are the next death sentence for whole fleets of outdated but otherwise beautiful and perfectly safe (for us) cruise-liners. International efforts to stop the environmental devastation caused by maverick ship-breakers in non OECD countries is going to raise the cost of professional dismantling in dry-docks with waste disposal and safe work-conditions way beyond scrap value.
So, I think with a bit more homework on the subject and some research we should be able to score one for virtually free. By virtually I mean the bare vessel. Our real cost would be to salvage or retain the accessories from dinner plates to generators and everything else on board except the name tag and roulette wheel. Considering the current price for scrap-metal, this might be our condition for taking it off their liability. We are going to re-conceptualise it from a commercial implement into an urban infrastructure and thereby reverse the notion of its initial purpose. Rather than maximum passage for utmost gain we do minimum for ditto. Costs would be a fraction compared to commercial upkeep and wages are nil.
On a ratio of 20% cruising and 80% stationary we would cover the whole world times over and by the same token create instant operational infra structure unmatched by conventional standards. And every conceivable comfort from cinemas to ballroom-style exuberance. Utilities from hospital to desalination plants and amicable resort style living environments are just some realistic aspects of a formula to make this the most affordable, and instantaneous living arrangement compared to orthodox dwelling.
It is calculated logistics, based on numbers, viability, and of course funds which justifies it even more for its commercial potential.
Sounds farfetched? Maybe so, it is a vision and a vision is always dynamic but it is up to us how far we project our imagination. - As long as we keep within present reality and future perspective.
They are so busy teaching our children to count.....
that they neglect to teach them 'what' counts. It drives me stark raving mad every time I have to put up with our politicians soap-boxing their same-old tedious election rant, “our biggest assets are our children”. When they are in fact our biggest liability for what is and isn’t done to their personal self-development.
Humanities future lies in its children. I agree, yet, in one part of the world these children live in poverty, despair, hunger and neglect while in the other they stuff themselves into obesity and succumb to addiction and disenchantment at such an alarmingly young age. The outlook seems dull but hope lies in each child’s inherent resilience and potential to succeed if provided the means and opportunity to do so.
Instead, they are corralled into a concentration-camp system with armed security and metal detectors to be taught about distorted history outdated science, discriminate music, art and religion, yet nothing about the tools they need to solve the problems of their personal life’s.
It is always outer circumstances being the cause of personal tragedies because we have to learn by mistakes. Schools are merely extensions of low-level government bureaucracies and as such, run by tin-pot dictators and careerist butt-kissers. -- Correspondingly it can only conclude that schools don’t and aren’t supposed to really teach anything except to obey orders and toe the SQ. We are indoctrinated to rely on the judgment of experts rather than our intuition and once that self-trust is lost, looking to external authority is inevitable. -- "Professor please teach me, so I don't have to learn".
Our school crisis is only a reflection of the greater social dilemma. Kids and oldies are penned up and locked away from daily life on a constant diet of synthetic mind-entrenchment and very limited personal attention. There is no past and no future without children and old people. Only a continuous present which renders the term community into networking and schools as social-strata sorting mechanisms or day care programs.
One must wonder just how much longer it will take until we stop talking physical punishment to teach the next generation how to be intimidated and how to intimidate through the basis of fear.
How much longer does it take to make us learn from past mistakes of which we are the shining examples. -- A society of schizophrenics, drug addicts alcoholics, violent people, depressed people, suicidal people.
How much prove is needed, that this whole permutation of anger, hate, and guilt is irrefutably rooted in fear, tradition and ignorance.
And how much longer will it take until we start teaching young people at school how to relax their body and mind. To teach them how to examine their attitudes. Teach them how to adjust beliefs and self image so they can gain mastery over their own lives instead of stagnating in boredom and tax-payer funded baby-sitting.
A self-assured child is not prone to peer pressure, -- it knows what’s cool and what sucks. It isn’t resentful when there is nothing to fear, but what do our politicians and their one-eyed protagonists suggest instead?
More behavior modification facilities (jails) to exacerbate what we already have. And why? Because as one might reasonably expect, a confident, contented person is much harder to manipulate and what’s required are active consumers not active intellectuals. That is why we are taught ASAP what we are supposed to know and told what we are supposed to believe. Pre-school age in the UK is now as low as three.
“Self-determination is more powerful than guns” (Joe Stalin)
John Taylor Gatto: …… After 12 000 hours of compulsory training at the hands of nearly 100 government certified men and women, many high-school graduates have no skills to trade for an income or even any skills with which to talk to each other. They can’t change a flat, read a book, repair a faucet, follow assembly directions, be alone with themselves or keep their marriage together. People who do very well in schools as we’ve conceived them have much more than their share of suicides, bad marriages, family problems, feelings of meaninglessness, addictions, failures, hearth by-passes and general bad health. These things are very well documented but most of us can grasp them without any need for verification.
If school is something that hurts you, what on earth are we allowing it for? The things that matter in a bad life, we know, are: gaining power over others, accumulating as much stuff as you can, getting revenge on your enemies (who are everywhere), and drugging yourself one way or another to forget the pain of not quite being human. School teaches most kids how to strive for a bad life and succeeds at this so well that most of our government machinery eventually falls into the hands of people who themselves are living bad lives … Full circle
The crucial agenda is that all students get the same claptrap pounded into their poor heads, so they leave the machinery with the same prejudices and illusions. As soon as a child is born the system takes it into its mighty clutches. It further determines what (junk) food is given to it, what kind of air this child is to breath and the soft drink it is to drink. The system determines its education and thereby the choices of its future role in life.
That’s why we can’t blame our teachers. They are just bubbled employees stuck with a curriculum which doesn’t include personal development. They believe what they are saying is good, solid information, but they are not trained in interpersonal skills. Like good unionised public servants they are only doing their job of turning them into compliant members of a face less workforce by teaching the habits of obedience and punctuality so vital for future servants. (and soldiers) Who cares if anyone is actually learning?
Everybody from parents, politicians and the media keep hammering us about this vital future reliance on education whilst enormous potentials of priceless above average gifts and talents are hibernating and eventually irretrievably fading into mediocrity. In fact, not educating a child to its full potential is simply deprivation of social justice and even more depressing is that there is not the slightest intention of change on the bureaucratic horizon.
They are now firmly wedged between two civilisations and without doubt the most rigorously challenged generation of all times. - Talking about a brick and a hard place. It is appallingly evident how ill prepared they are for the present and unless we create our own approach, our so called greatest potential will just be wasted at best if we are lucky. Or destroy us and itself for our selfish and negligent indolence.
"Everything in this universe is permanently impermanent". We are fully habituated and blind to the fact that meantime even change has changed. Change used to be merely another word for evolution and learning but it is no longer predictable, continuous, or part of a pattern. It requires wild speculation and discontinuous upside-down thinking, as well as abstract imagination for considering the unlikely and doing the seemingly absurd or even unreasonable.
We didn't have such distracting confluences of over-choice, entertainment and transience. Change in our days was evolutionary, predictable and orderly. So we think we are excused for using traditionally proclaimed 'as I did' benchmarks. We can’t do better for we don’t know better the rest is up to them how they turn out. -- Not good enough.
Only discontinuous change can lead to new freedom, new enlightenment and an age of inventing ways of living that will sustain this emerging new reality. Never before has a civilisation been so utterly capable of bringing evolution to a halt. The future is more or less unknowable and the best strategy for our kids is flexibility and broad band education, but most of all an intimate connection with nature to appreciate the fact that we share this planet and that we obtain our sustenance from other biological life forms. - Or in Anastasia's words; "truly happy children can only be raised in nature."
“We’re all born princes until education turns us into frogs” IOW, we were born with more intelligence than what we have after graduating from university. A child is still free from religion, free from tradition, free from hypocrisy, racism, hatred and all the social and cultural circumcision we define as education.
"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, it is the realization of how much you already have." -- The innocence of a child, always misconstrued as naive or immature, has to be destroyed and replaced by our own convoluted value system of ambition and hypocrisy.
Innocence is happiness and contentment. It is rich it is full and it is pure treasure. Immaturity on the other hand is mere ignorance and lack of wisdom. Life education should therefore compel us to separate the two and protect this treasure from fading into civilizing obscurity. It is in fact this pristine state of innocent simplicity being the ultimate goal every great seeker of wisdom tries to recapture. They aptly refer to this as second birth which could have been retained before it was buried under artificial IQ by parents and society.
"A man’s maturity consists in having found again the seriousness one had as a child at play". (FW Nietzsche)
There is no point in teaching our kids history, or even present here and now affairs, when by the time they reach adulthood they have to face a strange new world. Not only will they have to start again, but to make things worst, they have to de-fragment their minds from useless, out-dated, obstructing thought patterns.
Just ask yourselves, how much of what you were taught at school (apart from basic numerics and literacy) was in fact beneficial to your personal advancement. -- Did you ever need logarithm, Latin, arithmetics or the chemical composition of Vegemite? Was it beneficial to know the birth-day of Cleopatra or do we need to teach hero status on Napoleon when he was in fact a slaying, pillaging, pompous psychopath? And who cares anyway? The same applies to science which is so sporadically evolving, contradicting, self-canceling and superseding that we can no longer rely on opinionated, subjective, handed down solutions that will never be utilised for problems that will probably never exist. -- "Today's solutions to yesterday's troubles introduce new dynamics that become tomorrow's problems". (Karl Marx)
In any case, things have changed and not a day too soon. With unlimited information at our deployment, we can now personally consult inventors, scientists and researchers -- Information is free on tap and Knowledge is what we distill from it.
When things are investigated, the knowledge is extended.
When knowledge is extended, the will becomes sincere.
When the will is sincere, the mind is correct.
When the mind is correct, the self is cultivated. (Confucius)
But first we have to clear up the primal misconception that schooling is tantamount to education. We are far more than submissive memorisers and education should go further than intellectual wriggling or to ape our elders to make things worse. Education or should it be called deprivation was a planned ignorance bomb and primarily deployed to bray children away from their parents in order to produce controllable, dependent and predictable human beings (consumers, workers and/or soldiers). It does not educate and can therefore never be one and the same.
First we allow strangers to deliver our children into an unfamiliar medical institution, then we entrust them to babysitters, teachers and textbooks to be followed up by tabloids, television and advertising.
Then there are psychiatrists, guides, coaches, animators and all kinds of facilitators. How on earth can we talk about educating children when we remain on the sideline and deliver them into the clutches of strangers virtually from day one. Is it because we feel helpless and inadequate to put an end to this, or is it convenience and ignorance? probably both, but fact is that any parent can do it. -- If he really thinks about it. (Anastasia)
When the student is ready the master will appear. 'Trying to teach a pig to sing is a waste of time -- and it annoys the pig.' -- One can’t teach people anything they don’t want to know and no state aligned education factory can mass-produce intestinal fortitude, self-responsibility and cope-ability. -- Real education is manifestation of the imagination, not grade-grabbing or knowing more stuff than others. It is to boost our intelligence and therewith improving what we are able to perceive. Real intelligence is open-mindedness and only an open minded person can embrace new ideas to provide a better living than schooling ever can. -- Elvis failed at his music class.
"The majority believes that everything hard to comprehend must be very profound. This is incorrect. What’s hard to understand is what is unclear, immature and often false. The highest wisdom is simple and passes through the brain directly to the heart." (Victor Schauberger)
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural common sense. -- A well schooled person with artificial intelligence can program computers, sell real-estate or even design guided missiles yet can be wholly useless and irrelevant as a human being to others or itself in a society where self-reliance, confidence and adaptability are the real education for success and survival. A fool with a university degree is just an educated idiot and letters after our names do not make us wise or inspired. I’ve met several academic geniuses with the maturity of 12 year olds after two drinks.
It’s a miracle that curiosity survives formal education (A. Einstein)
In pre-institutional history, the life of a child or adolescent was real work, real charity, real adventure and the search for mentors who might teach what they really wanted to learn. -- A close study of the ‘big’ people was always the most exciting occupation of youth. Time was spent in playful learning to make a home, bake bread and many other necessary tasks to become a whole person. -- A person regardless of age needs intellectual motivation in order to perceive and process knowledge which comprises of cognition, insight, awareness and wisdom. This cannot be brought upon in a system of segregation, detached from the natural diversity of life and the natural process of self-development.
· Self-knowledge is the basis for true knowledge and uniqueness.
· Self-knowledge is self-teaching and only self-teaching will last.
The key to discerning self-knowledge is to give our kids individual time to be spent on private contemplation which leads to incitement for further expansion and inevitably deletes monotony or aggression. They can roam the village at their hearts content, there is no pedophile or bully to be concerned about and there is no drug-pusher lurking in the neighborhood.
If one prefers hanging out at our motor-pool, farm, marina, IT-shop or kitchen, we wouldn’t need a PhD. in pedagogy to determine inclination and talent. From there on we become their respective mentors. We teach them everything we know and they supplement with future progress and eventually teach us. It’s as simple as letting water find its own way. If you were a painter, musician or engineer, then it would be you, to draw (and spot) their talent, and what’s more rewarding for a mentor than to discover and develop mutual propensity.
Our model of diversity will yield a bounty of choices and skills required
to adapt to unforeseen events and in fact touch the future we generate. They may not transpire but then again who knows? let us not underrate an unpolluted mind. After all they’ve just arrived from the other side and contain all the pure ‘unadulterated’ knowledge and information of the spiritual domain. -- It is actuality rather than concept and can produce remedies and solutions we wouldn’t even dream of. Most may seem silly by our standards but there is enormous potential in spontaneity and only by supporting such curiosity can we shift education into the future, or to echo M. Gandhi “we must become the future we seek”
In the long run the only way we can get off our destructive path is to develop a radically different perspective on our place in nature. Adults who have invested a great deal of effort to reach their current position are reluctant to make that shift. Children on the other hand, have most at stake since they will inherit the world we leave then; -- since they have not invested the time and effort in the status quo, they are still receptive to possibilities and options. So we must fight to save as much wilderness as possible while simultaneously working to ensure that our children are different from us. ( David Suzuki)
Education without compulsion, learning without teachers and managing without managers. It's the lesson, not the teacher. Our objective is to blur the line between education and life to a point where adolescents become productive communal citizens and with hands on participation the learning process takes place all on its own. Lifestyle becomes continuing education in its true sense, so children learn entirely at their own individual pace.
They will feel confident and useful without peer pressure and within their individual personality, race, gender, sexuality and intellect. They develop self esteem, self-respect and self-determination because they are allowed to do what they’ve always been capable of doing and treated as persons without having to surrender childhood for methodical rigor and parental aspirations. -- And the same goes for us grown-ups.
We didn’t stop playing because we got old we got old because we stopped playing. We need children as teachers because they are better at laughing and playing and only play can successfully bridge the generation gap and create equality.
Differences should be addressed instead of drugged out to conform to a mold. Differences like their subjective level, tendency to dominate, or to be sociable as well as in their size, shape, temperament and deficiencies. Or what takes precedence on the organic level like gut, muscle or nervous system. Could there be some chronic deficiency which might imbalance vitality, or cause moodiness, foolishness or malice? Blood-sugar, vitamin absorption, breathing, posture or energy level? All this should be brought together into a single educational process of simultaneous training in perceiving and imagining. -- Financial management, applied physiology, proper use of language and self-knowledge. In summary: a training of the whole mind-body in all aspects.
By integrating our education with CS, we gain all of that without having to restructure. Family is the main engine of education and CS is its hands-on conclusion. It is the road of applied biology and happiness from the inside out through awareness, health and attitude towards the world instead of the mirage of happiness from the outside in through electronic toys, non-stop entertainment, virtual reality, and the chemical straight jacket of psychotic medication.
Let's just look at the environmentally created pandemic of ADSD. A made up disease that capitalizes on typical childhood behavior which is a result of too much sugar and too little discipline. -- It has to be the epitome of parental ignorance, by conveniently accepting industry pampered shotgun diagnosis to snare the lucrative child-market for drugs and treatments.
Gone are the days of therapy with caring practitioners along with every remaining scrap of professional dignity. It would be quite obvious that any such disorder should be examined by neurologists but yet again as all too often the whole felony starts with the least qualified to do so. The lies told to parents by teachers, nurses, coaches and even pediatricians about ADD drugs are preposterous and outright criminal. -- They are panicked into believing their children are mentally ill and need early treatment to avoid a life of crime, drug addiction and early death which of course is exactly what they are getting from it. And henceforth ignorance is no longer bliss. It is death by sanctioning large scale brain alteration and psychotropic mind-slaughter out of certified greed and convenience.
Ritalin is hailed as the magic bullet solution for hyperactivity and there is no doubt that it is highly effective at calming tiny humans who do not know how to behave. Let there be no mistake! Attention Deficit Disorder is not a disease it is in fact 'Parental Attention Deficit Disorder' and was quite unknown before color TV, Nintendo, Aspartame, MSG, fluoride and psycho technology. -- Before parents were giving to their career the time they owe to the children to create the virtues of concentration, manners, empathy and patience. That means with a little authority, certain values to live up to, some responsibilities to meet, and of course a lot of love and support. -- And it was unknown before the noblest task of woman as the raising of the next generation, was spoken of with contempt as being chained to the kitchen sink. I often wonder why mothers could stay home in the fifties but not anymore. The answer is not a drug -- it's better parenting.
The now readily accepted synthetic substitute is by curbing ADD or ADHD to the point of depression with Ritalin and then ‘re balance’ with Prozac to prevent suicide. Stigmatizing misbehavior as a mental disease is morally convenient and by the same token deflects doubts of deficient parenting into the martyrdom of struggling with a sick child. Win-win-win. The drug thugs got another sale the physician has another cured patient the parent is vindicated and the school is absolved. High fives all round, everyone is happy except the child. -- And the child has no voice. If it becomes numb and docile it means the medicine is working and if the child dies, well it must have brought out an underlying psychopathology and it would have died anyway -- eventually.
The Victorians sent them down the coalmines, the PolPot to the rice fields the Chinese to the sweat-shops, but we are heaping worse onto bad by not only stealing their childhood but wrecking their future as well. -- And this will haunt us beyond redemption.
The fact that every single youngster involved in ‘each’ Columbine-style school massacre having been on psycho-drug programs was just a surreal coincidence and obediently ignored by the media. Blanket entry ban into any armed forces with as much as a record of those drugs should typify the severity yet millions of children from as young as two with epidemic increase are tranquillised by drugs stronger than heroin for a disorder that has never been shown to even exist, with long-term consequences that have never been researched. And for your information, Ritalin is an amphetamine. -- Shared in the school yard like jelly-beans and at home secretly upstaging mum's trusty Valium.
Prescribing schedule II drugs (category Cocaine and Morphine) to a four year old for something that cannot even be diagnosed, is one of the most hideous and incomprehensible accounts of child abuse. There can be no doubt about that. We are talking about knowingly stunting and inhibiting growth of a profoundly vulnerable developing mind and nervous system.
Just figure an adolescent coming off its emotive autopilot at the age of fourteen after years of sedated stupor without the highs and lows that teach a fledging mind to deal with emotions. -- Each growth experience drugged out of existence, stolen erased and merged into insensate robotic cruise-control. -- They are then big strong human beings who never had the time to learn how to cope with intellectual concentration, stress, or moral discipline.
Not only is that outrageous, It is expedient absentee parenting by nanny-state intervention and what it does is breeding an increasing proportion of stunted personalities who cannot accept denial in any way or shape. When they come face to face with the real world they can’t deal with it and even the Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs.
Many reach for alcohol or more drugs and some ultimately decide that 'society must pay'. The feeling of WTF is growing and we now have a population of addicted slackers and agro’s waiting to take over with no ambition, no real vision of a future, a belief that only the cheaters and liars ever make it, and good guys finish last.
Gunpoint Medication. -- But the above is not the worst of it because it was still up to the parents to say no. What really should get our guard up is the fact that there are right now laws being passed making psychiatric care speak drugs to be dispensed 'whenever possible'. Mental abattoirs (institutions) Medicare systems public schools and anywhere the state can legally intrude into the life and mind of the individual. The issue boils down to a very simple question: who has the right to raise our children? Parents or the State?
What can you do? -- Firstly school your kids at home (as long as it's still legal) or teach them to behave like well adjusted little robots. To deny their fledgling individuality, to stifle their natural hormonal rages and to paint on a happy face every day. In other words, to be abnormal and pretend they're already medicated. Lest some half-wit guidance counselor with mental issues of their own should pluck them from the masses to be prodded, cross-examined, and medicated for life... They are excessively proficient about making their jobs easier and make no mistake, they do genuinely believe these drugs are necessary which clearly explains their drastic over-subscription and misdiagnoses. -- And for Pete's sake, keep your kid far away from the local psychiatrist.
And if you don't? well check that: The state of Maryland has already turned to Gestapo style tactics when, last November children were herded into a Prince George County courthouse, to be forcibly vaccinated. Many against their will under orders from the Attorney-General, various State Judges and the local School Board Director. -- All of whom conspired to threaten parents with imprisonment if they didn't submit to vaccination.
In fact whenever anyone in the government says they're doing something "for the public good" put your hand on your civil rights and hold on for dear life, because it is all bullshit, -- and you know it.
"The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used.” Dr. J A. Shannon National Institutes of Health.
During the days of slavery, slaves who ran away were said to suffer from a mental disease that caused them to dislike being slaves, (and treated accordingly) whereas the sorcerers of modern shrinkdom promote the idea of mental illness being caused by chemical imbalance in the brain which justifies the use of toxic stimulants and anti depressants. -- From there it’s just a small step to intentionally abusing the most dangerous drugs on the planet, namely the legal prescription and over the counter medications which are statistically higher than the abuse of ecstasy, crack cocaine and methamphetamines combined. Like the previously free choice of vaccination, muted by school-discrimination; this, and with a child now receiving 34 and more vaccinations during its first 18 months represents the next step of Big-Pharmas role in identity management for Big Brother.
We can except all this as reality and keep band aiding the symptoms as accustomed but what if there was something else involved? -- as well. What if it is linked to the changing of cosmic frequency? This is clearly affecting the function of the human brain on the threshold between the conscious and the psychic. It facilitates inherent communication with the earth and access to information and knowledge beyond our five senses. With that energy rising, some babies are already able to incarnate at the highest level of ethereal awareness available on this planet and manifestall of humanity. -- 2012 ?? higher knowledge and understanding much earlier then we could have done in our lower frequency. This would further imply an evolutionary trust towards higher consciousness for
I can only quote on literature and there is already considerable evidence coming through. They are referred to as “Indigo Children” for their always identical violet-blue color of life (aura). Their average IQ is between 130 and 160, and they cannot relate to authority or obedience. In other words our conventional way of indoctrination. If this was the case and we should indeed keep an open mind on that, then education would have to become what it should have always been: a two way street.
How can we explain the staggering confluence of psychic-clairvoyant children who are in contact with the other side and able to visualise as well as communicate with animals fairies and deceased entities. Some can see auras and even access the Akasha chronic to retrieve explicit info from the supreme data base of celestial intelligence.
Others who can vividly remember previous incarnations with unequivocal evidence of location, names, details and photographs. Usually up to the age of 4-5 or however long it takes for us to erase it. Or the super-psychic children of China with X-ray vision and able to read with their ears, hands or toes. They can stop moving cars, levitate and teleport themselves and all sorts of material objects through walls and in and out of any confines. (First tested and researched by OMNI Magazine in Jan. 1985). They are not the odd wonder-child not even a few hundred they are now being born by the thousands and there are special schools where normal children are known to become psychic by correlation.
And what about the new generation of DNA modified disease busters. These little buggers are resistant to contaminated blood (AIDS) and every known strand of viral disease or Cancer. Science may call it spontaneous genetic mutation but fact is that increasing numbers of souls are now incarnating with 46+2 chromosome DNA memory and by contemplating hereditary manifestation this could imply the design of a new human race within one lifetime.
As we can see there are quite astonishing rebirths ascending and these fascinating little beings are eventually going to unite and change or more to the point save our world. They will hopefully use their extraordinary aptitude to induce ethical and more importantly scientific enlightenment because if they don’t nothing ever will.
“You need Soul and Heart and you need God and Love to live your life. Without it you die a little bit every day” (Marcus, four years old)
you can buy an education but wisdom is gift....
Elementary education must further encompass the science as well as the ethics of relationships: Balance, give and take, no excess. -- It is the rule of nature translated out of fact into morality wherefore first and foremost education ought to start with ecology. The reality that nothing exists in isolation and everything has consequences.
All living is relationship and we have our agricultural environment as well as our abundant natural diversity on tap to provide the real thing instead of DVD's and the annual Zoo excursion. Higher education and adjustment can come with adolescence and will be much easier achieved and fortified on a sound bio-chemical and psychological balance.
The best educational system is having no system at all (L. Tolstoy)
Our classroom will be a one-size-fits-all intellect development centre or juvenile think-tank facility in form of an open plan self-serve knowledge supermarket. A kind of tribal long-house where older children look after toddlers like biological siblings within a system of interdependent group action. -- The ‘Each One Teach One’ University where sharing what they know with each other takes priority over learning for themselves. This will foster the benefits of cooperation by allowing each to throw light on the others, standing for the intellectual development of well together human beings who are able to feel deeply, to think penetratingly and then to act rightly out of conscious and free choice.
They have their meals together and resume the roles of educators and coaches within their age difference. -- With their own unique wave-length they relate intuitively and spontaneously, given the wisdom inspired lead of skilled elders, dedicated teachers, and reconverted psychiatrists.
They can run their own radio-station, intranet, disco and library as well as their own sex-ed with natural insight at farm CS and anecdotal 'one-talk' with their older mates instead of our clumsy attempts which usually come too late, and scarcely more interesting than being dead.
Sex, drugs, and computers are all society-shaping forces that are here to stay. If we do not inform our children of the dynamics of these things then we cannot claim in any serious way, that we have educated them. Ergo we need to educate our children for the world that they will actually live in.
Science education in high school should be designed around biology and sex anyway because this is when growing up goes into overdrive and the most intense transformation in anyone’s life impacts upon the most ill prepared and confused adolescent faced to deal with. We are inundated with options of facilitating menopause which is a cake ride compared to the hormonal tsunami of surging puberty, but there are still principals caving in to demands of keeping sex-ed out of the classroom and rather leave it to on-line pornography in the school yard.
In fact we should dismiss the very subject schooling altogether in favor of exploration or discovery and instead of providing facts and training for careers and jobs we ought to find ways of instilling excitement and interest in the natural world around them which is, let’s face it, literally based on reproduction. Once this is understood, practically every other subject can thereupon be encompassed and taught.
· It is a place where children are treated with the same courtesy as grown-ups and grown-ups are encouraged to be children.
· It will be a place where we can give them back their own time they so desperately need to develop self-knowledge.
· Where they can solve their problems in an unplugged setting, alone or amongst each other.
· It will be a place they can call their own, where we take backstage in the role of protective guides and mentors.
· And they are allowed to make their own mistakes. -- and yes, even if they don't learn from them.
· To simply give them a chance to discover what already lies within and to feel the practical result of their creative force.
We can adjust and experiment as much as we deem acceptable because we are free to do so. We are self funding and don’t need the credentialed approval of certified academia to gain acceptance based on ornate titles and stilted diplomas. We will have the smartest, most confident and self-respecting graduates from our home-brand university of life, happiness and brotherhood because there is no better tool for the future and life in general then to be self evaluating focused preactive, self reliant, confident adaptable, and articulate. -- Suffice to say that all of this is genetically present. It does not need disciplined character formation mind-alteration or traditional mental hardware apart from guided self-development and exemplary support.
Confidently comprehending to and examining the following four questions is all that’s needed to graduate and fly solo.
· Who am I and where am I going?
· How do I make sense and communicate with the world?
· What are my rights and responsibilities in community and economy?
· How do I describe, analyse and share the world around me?
"Observing a child going through our education system is like watching reverse metamorphosis: in flies a butterfly; out comes a caterpillar". (Kijosaki)
We all know how devastating personal growth can be manipulated by parochial pressure cooker education from last century’s history of Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Pol-Pot et al, ranging from idealistic obedience, to unopposed zombie-cultures and blind self-denial. Just as faith is another word for dogma so is education synonymous to indoctrination. Even now on a less radical profile children are incessantly exposed to grand-scale conditioning by fashion, amusement and corporate trend exploitation, regardless of confusion and over-choice.
Despotic fascism is replaced by corporate fascism and marching tunes by hip-hop. Jack-boots by Nike and medals by badges. Seems harmless but it still comes down to being manipulated, conditioned and brain-washed by the velvet-gloved Gestapo of ruthless want-makers from a generation that should know better. -- I am not one to imply that kids who don’t play with wooden toys become psychopath’s, but I believe technology should be taught in a playful context and not by terminating abators on virtual reality.
It cannot work because its fundamental premises are mechanical, anti-human and hostile to family life. The result is schizophrenia on a national scale. They will eventually fight back with weapons of social pathology, suchlike vandalism, violence, self-destruction, indifference and the usual symptoms we conveniently blame on bad influence.
Positive parenting involves taking an active role in a child's life, such as monitoring activities, involvement, and consistency of discipline. We have all grown out of the soil of our subjugations. If the fruit is bad, are we only to blame the fruit? - Behavior or values are not self-generating, they are byproducts of culture and aberrant behavior is produced by aberrant social conditions i.e. malnutrition, poor role models lack of motivation and lack of decent education. -- Children brought up without bigotry, racism, or greed, will no longer manifest behavior that is socially offensive.
So part of good parenting is not only to protect against bad influence, but also to instill positive connections with others during adolescence which then impacts on how they relate with their own partner, and their own child as an adult. For instance, if you control your child with anger and threats, it learns to deal in this way with peers, teachers, and eventually its own children.
I’m aware of how hard it is even for a skilled educator to guide a growing mind through the minefield of novelty and protect it long enough to reach self-determination, but the odds to fail rise astronomically for a less gifted career-entrenched working parent. -- No matter how much you love your child, the revolution in entertainment and the tide of conditioned egotism works against you. We can stem or at least curb that tide by eliminating mindless trash and violence from our media amongst other protective strategies.
And neither will we just stand by when you bring up your kids in a way that may pose a future liability for themselves and subsequently us. We are aware how valuable and vital our future generation is to our own development and therefore you have to accept our concern for proper guidance and compassion. -- Even though you may think this is your own business but it is not when it comes to living with the consequences.
Social skills are now taught by reality TV where unremitting cruelty, bad language, casual violence, vulgarity and aggressive behavior are the norm and responsible parents are intimidated and taken out of the equation by all sorts of new laws or besieged by the rising glorification of bad manners and selfish conduct.
Millions of dollars are being spent to help women become astronauts or athletes, but not a dime to become mothers. Instead we now live in times where children have more rights to personal privacy than most adults. Where parent's wants wishes and goals are subordinate to their children's whims; where any discipline beyond closemouthed speech is classified as abuse; and where the actions of teachers and police to control unruly kids is met with threats of litigation, throwing our whole nation into politically-correct quicksand. Meantime the family unit breaks down and the kids go wild. -- This evolution in laissez fare parenting induced by our increasingly blameless, no-fault society, has consisted with seriously daunting developments in the lives of modern youngsters. Things like:
· An explosion in diagnoses of ADD/ADHD and its subsequent prescription drug addictions.
· Ever increasing teenage depression. Use of powerful antidepressant drugs as well as dramatic jumps in juvenile suicide.
· Declining school scores and academic achievement in almost all adolescent statistics.
· Distressing increases in childhood obesity, STD's, teenage pregnancy and substance abuse.
Kids need to know that actions have consequences. That’s how we keep them first from hurting themselves, and later from hurting others. The challenge to educate to the maximum human potential is greater than ever and if you fail, which seems to be the norm nowadays, it is not because you didn't love them. It is because you think "there was nothing wrong with the way I turned out so it must be bad influence". You may think that you are not liable for the damage they cause, nor to pay for vandalised property, psychological or medical support, cost of court and cost of keeping them locked up.
It seems we have laws and regulations for just about everything from driving a car to treating the family poodle but any scumbag can breed an innocent human being, moronise it and let it loose on society, oblivious towards the pain and suffering they may inflict on others. They don’t invade their own home and they don’t rape their own mother or sister and you claim innocence because you loved them, gave them everything, worked so hard for it and maybe didn’t have enough time etc. Or just shrug it off and think good riddance until someone else’s ‘bad’ offspring mug’s, robs or bashes you up. Then you’d be the first to wail and complain about what the world is coming to.
Society attacks early when the victim is helpless ( B.F. Skinner) Bigotry, racism, superstition, greed, and self-centered behavior are all learned patterns of behavior, which are strengthened or reinforced by our upbringing. These patterns of behavior are not inherited human traits or "human nature" as most people have been taught to believe.
Children are born atheists and anarchists. They have to be taught and conditioned to whatever bias or prejudice surrounds them. -- Like those blank pages upon which our characters are written by parents, schools, churches and society itself. If evil and fear can be written upon those pages then so could be kindness, sincerity, compassion, decency and a collective spirit. Eventually they are going to make up their own minds anyway, but let them do it without hypocrisy and bigotry and without fear, stress and tension. -- They are the keys to socio-cultural evolution and as the numbers of juvenile delinquents swell and flee their homes it becomes frightfully clear that our most valued resources are also our most volatile and dangerous ones. -- They may not feel obliged and appreciative towards us when we grow old and we will be at their mercy. (they wouldn’t even know how, so who could blame them)
Tradition excepts only biological bloodline and of course within wedlock otherwise you are a bastard which only makes it a bastard of a tradition when there are on the other hand gifted born nurturers, intellectually and emotionally equipped for the task of caring and guidance. There is little more important than family as a microcosm, reflecting the true nature of the world. It is the main engine of education because the curriculum of a family is the heart of life and love itself.
It doesn’t have to be the biological kind as long as it provides genuine intimacy and sincerity. -- Adopted, foster, step or blood, who cares, they only respond to love and attention. They can’t discriminate, and neither should we. I can't help but believe that just about every kind of under-achieving or destructive childhood behavior begins and ends with parents. Children are not born to hate, they are taught to hate and it is always parents that make their kids fat, not restaurants. -- At least I have never seen an eight year old at the wheel in a thrive-through.
We don’t surrender our kids to strangers, we give them the best there is in compassion, wisdom and love. Professional parenthood amongst trust and friendship would compare favourably to boarding schools, random baby-sitters or stressed-out unqualified amateurs. And you can focus on what you like and do best which percolates back to communal harmony and stability.
It could be said that we all want the best for our children but love is not enough, it also requires tolerance, wisdom, patience and understanding and if you cannot or don’t want to give it, we’ll step in and make sure they get it. It is genuine and does not make you a lesser person. We are all products of our own mostly wrong upbringing and if anything it would prove your love by wanting the best for them too. -- Even if you can’t give it yourself. But if you insist in doing it your way and we all disagree, then you’ll have to think again.
Bottom line is “as the twig bends so the tree will grow” and we have to make sure to get it right, from the beginning. A computer is as good as its program but it can only be upgraded on a sound motherboard.
If Nazism, Stalinism or Maoism was able to breed cruelty, obedience, and phony elitism against human nature by misguided personal growth within one generation, then there are no words to depict the abundance of virtue achievable by just supporting what comes natural. Regimes need brute force and extensive propaganda to modify perceptions, personalities and even character. All we need is a supportive environment to shelter and nourish our twigs so they can grow into strong and healthy trees without having to cripple personal traits to emulate society. It is too late for us grown-ups, we have to compensate by assembling these attributes as breeding-stock so to speak and this is another reason why we have to be selective and discerning.
But before we can teach our children we have to change our own horizon in order to become supportive mentors. The accelerative trust of events will make structured life-styles obsolete before they are established and wreak havoc amongst, relationships, social values, and governments as we know them.
There is no monopoly on foresight and all we can do is resort to educated vision and long range assumptions by scanning the horizon and involving our students from the very start. -- Today, any child hanging out at a mall, or shooting up drugs, is a wasted life that society ultimately pays for. In our community there will be places for our children to go, to learn, and to experiment. The more intelligent they are, the better everyone's life will be. These children are our up and coming Presidents and leaders. It will be them shaping and influencing our own destiny and having to inherit our mess gives them every damn right to participate. It will be an association of youth, science , understanding, wisdom and knowledge. A future shaping task force with consistent direction and shared discovery.
And last but not least our nautical faculty, adding a whole miscellany of additional subjects, from contrived geography, language-study, biology, oceanography, treasure-salvage, friendship and adventure. A one-year cadet-ship attending classes part-time and active participation with our commercial projects as well as Community-Service will open up a broad horizon of learning options and unprecedented vistas of exploration and pioneering. Know the old saying, “You remember 10% of what you are told, 60% of what you see, and 80 % of what you do”.
"Hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was or the sort of house I lived in, but the world may be changed because I was important in the life of a child.
On our terms
‘Knowledge is not what you can remember it is what you can’t forget’.
Another criteria is learning efficiency, comprising of: learning, relating and selecting. Knowledge of now will be obsolete or superseded tomorrow, which means that we have to learn how to discard and how to replace it. In short we have to relearn how to learn. There is a limit to cognitive retention and what do we make of it? We fill it with racism, tradition, fear and the preposterous piffle we define as education. But what makes it worst is its undeletable manifestation in their delicate system-files.
I can still recite ‘Die Buergschaft’ which is about 50 verses of medieval humbug by 'Schiller'. It was prodded upon us without comprehension for sense or usefulness, took weeks to memorise and still persists steadfastly embedded in my cerebral cortex. -- If instead they'd have taught me to handle mobbing or peer pressure it would have spared me painful years of anxiety and discontent. 'H. Enjoy' from the human res. org. put it in perspective: “Tomorrows illiterate will not be the man who can’t read, He will be the man who has not learned how to learn."
How true but what an understatement. He is not just tomorrows illiterate, he is also the cause of the mess we are in today. Have we learned from WW2, (3), Vietnam, Afghanistan, Croatia, Somalia, Iraq, Darfur or Kosovo Have we learned how to be caring, tolerant, or decent? To say no to violence, unsafe sex, exploitation, or smoking tobacco? To challenge the assumptions of history and deconstruct the spin of religion and politics? of course not. It is our Status Quo authorising us to be foolish, so we don’t have to feel guilty. We do have a brain but it came without a manual and we still haven’t figured out how to use it. -- Like the system files in our computer, coordinating which program to apply and which to discard we also have to learn how to change categories, allocate priorities or delete. All this would be hard to do on our own and this is probably why nobody bothers, but when applied in unison it resonates and will happen by itself. Decent progress cannot flourish in a vacuum. The generation of tomorrow will be what we make it and THIS is why our children are our most valid resources.
They are as playwright David Stevens so passionately asserts “The Sum Of Us”. The sum of our personality, upbringing, education, convictions, culture, character and attitude, as well as the whole of genetic heritage from previous incarnations. -- In other words, the end product of the entire human evolution. They are the sum of us, BUT they are not our extension. They are distinct individuals with their own destiny, their own thoughts and their own aspirations and if we truly want what’s best for them (which might differ a great deal from our own perception) then we should support their own inclinations instead of cloning ourselves.
There must be no more as I did parents and the three S’es (Sex, Shame, Sin) will give way to the three L’s of Life, Love and Light. Sincerity and warmth instead of prim and proper is the only way to support personal growth and the self-development required to deal with tomorrow where fostering to connect with their highest potential is the most valuable gift to them and the world.
I think we can build schools that don't actively poison young minds or serve the needs of the corporations for illiterate robots, But only if we do it our way and on our own terms. Real teachers never take away anything from their student. They just show them a new way to look at things and how to awaken the inner and deeper levels of understanding. -- What happens is they wake up inside, they stretch their spirituality and minds and they visit new horizons. That’s what real teaching is. ‘Enlightenment’.
"You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself. " ( Galileo Galilei)
On a final note let me present you with an excerpt from Aldos Huxley’s book “Island” which is a must-read about Utopia and a lot of food for thought.....
…………under the new dispensation I didn’t have to undergo unnecessary suffering wasn’t wrecked or forced into rebellion or resignation. Why? Because from the moment I could toddle, I was free to escape. To escape? he repeated. To escape? It seemed too good to be true.
Escape, she explained, is built into the new system. Whenever the parental Home Sweet Home becomes too unbearable, the child is allowed, is actively encouraged – and the whole weight of public opinion is behind the encouragement – to migrate to one of its other homes. how many homes does a Palanese child have? about twenty on the average. Twenty?
We all belong, Susila explained, to an MAC – a Mutual Adoption Club. Every MAC consists of anything from fifteen to twenty assorted couples. Newly elected brides and bride-grooms, old timers with growing children and grand-parents – everybody in the club adopts everyone else Besides our own blood relations, we all have our quota of deputy mothers, deputy fathers, deputy aunts and uncles, deputy brothers and sisters, deputy toddlers and teenagers.’ Will shook his head. Making twenty families grow where only one grew before.
But what grew before was your kind of family. The twenty are all our kind. As thought reading instructions from a cookery book, -- Take one sexually inept wage-slave, she went on, one dissatisfied female, two or three small television addicts: marinate in a mixture of Freudism and dilute Christianity: then bottle up tightly in a four room flat and stew for fifteen years in their own juice. Our recipe is rather different. Take twenty sexually satisfied couples and their offspring: add science, intuition and humour in equal quantities: steep in Tantric Buddhism and simmer indefinitely in an open pan in the open air over a brisk flame of affection.
And what comes out of your open pan? he asked. An entirely different family. Not exclusive, like your families, and not predestined, not compulsory An inclusive, unpredestined and voluntary family. Grown up children then go out and adopt another set of elders, a different group of juniors. And the members of the new club adopt them and, in due course, their children.
Hybridisation of micro-cultures – that’s what our sociologists call the process. It’s as beneficial, on its own level, as the hybridisation of different strains of maize or chicken. Healthier relationships in more responsible groups, wider sympathies and deeper understandings for all from babies to centenarians. . .
This may be challenging theory, however I'm convinced that there are similar arrangements already up and running. It does make sense though and as I mentioned before, we are free to experiment, even as a pilot study where it doesn’t have to be an absolute for our whole community.
Now you are not going to believe this but the same day I concluded this chapter I picked up an old copy of “the Prophet” by Kahil Gibran and as by divine co-incidence I found this most enchanting and mindful piece of poetry to sum up with:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
and though they are with you they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
for they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bow from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer seeks the mark upon the path of the infinitive, And he bends you with His might that his arrows may go swift and far.
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves the bow that is stable.
Law and order
The world is neither flat nor round, it’s crooked....
Of all the institutional derivatives like health and safety or harbor marine etc. law and order must surely be the most mismatched combination of opposing criteria forced into a common denominator. The current ratio of nine to one clearly reflects the deceptive relationship and consequently similar ratios apply to expenditures for correctional facilities compared to educational disbursement. We have more rules and regulations governing our every day’s life than any dictatorship (as well as people behind bars). But of course rules are never wiser than the fool who makes them and their ever-increasing abundance is the clumsy but accepted compromise.
One way of eradicating crime would be to nationalise it so it runs at a loss but you can’t disturb a symbiosis without bringing down the whole rotten system. "Law is a patient ass if you use a golden bridle". -- It is utterly devoid of morals or ethics, bloated beyond restraint, virtually untouchable and nothing but a convoluted inundation of corporate, political, industrial and institutional corruption constituted by three major categories:
Institutional: Is exclusively about control, or fascist laws for fascist times. Today you can go to prison for many years for just about anything; the more ridiculous the circumstances the heavier the penalty. Once we succumb to the lure or circumstance of crime (no matter how trivial) we have given up our constitutional rights for freedom and selfdetermination. Big brother steps in, we are on record and from there on the only right you have is to be silent (for ever).
Ninety % of people incarcerated have not committed any crime against person or property. You wonder why you were cavity searched after your recent return from Disneyland ? Well, it’s probably the joint the coppers planted in your glove-box twenty years ago when they booked you for speeding back in bum-crack nowhere, provoked by your haircut and index finger. Wig-head ordered no conviction to be recorded while a whole flock of pigs flew past the court-room window.
Corporate: The court of Law is the main arena for the corp. gladiators.
It provides loopholes and leverages for every conceivable imposition and I often wonder why there are still so many crooks with all the legal means of fraud and deception. These corporations are beasts that serve not any man but only greed and whatever it takes to plunder others property.
There are individuals in this country who can steal billions of dollars and they are not in prison! -- Why isn't every responsible person screaming for justice? Because there is no such thing. -- That’s why.
Criminal: The law is man’s feeble attempt to force decency upon us and it provides criminal justice by doing precisely what it asserts: justice for criminals. Driving an unregistered car on a suspended license is punished harsher than rape assault or theft because the violent criminal may have been a bed-wetter in his infancy and therefore a victim of post natal stress disorder. Never mind the real victim. Six million American citizens are presently held in (slave-labor) custody or on parole and most of them non-whites for non-violent crimes. It is all about law but it is the law of the rule where implementation presides over purpose. Smoking pot is illegal because it makes you think. Alcohol is cool because it makes you stupid and destroys more lives than smoking ever will. 40% of all drug related jail-convictions are for smoking pot ?? and the prison industries biggest money maker is the war on drugs.
“The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws”. (Ayn Rand)
'Laws create outlaws'
"When freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free. " (an old purism)
"If Evolution Is Outlawed, Only Outlaws Will Evolve" (Jello Biafra)
"When Donuts are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have Donuts"
Laws are written by lawyers, so you have to hire a lawyer to represent you in front of another lawyer who now wears a robe?? One close look at a circus in session reveals the grotesque travesty of pseudo justice. The stage is set like a medieval time-warp. Everybody has to rise when they bring in the clowns in their classical fancy-dress to make them honorable. And we even have to address them as such when all they do is throwing tragedy in people’s lives into even deeper turmoil by sanctimonious, opinionated inquisition and distort.
Suppression is ninety percent of the law where trial determines whether the prosecution or the defense had the better argument. (lawyer) And every time the accused tries to tell the truth, his lawyer objects because he is presumed guilty until proven influential and then free to go. Poor little perpetrator! Nasty victim! -- This is a blame and claim department not a quest for truth. Let alone justice.
"Laws are like cobwebs. They entangle the weak but are broken by the strong" (Solon)
Our (aptly named) legal-eagles speak vultures, in slick Armani suites strutting to and fro on their price performance of perverting and debasing the truth and experimenting how far it stretches before the auctioneers gavel compels them to re-phrase. Who is the highest bidder? It’s him with the savviest lawyer of course. -- It doesn’t matter what the law says. It doesn’t matter what The Constitution says. It doesn’t matter what the evidence or the witness says. What matters is how many lawyers you can afford and for how long. Or as they say, “You get what you pay for”. Again, bottom line is winning. Just like in sports business and politics. Awash with loopholes, mushy language, wiggle-room and ambiguity.
The mongrel has guilty written all over his smug sneer and walks out living his distraught victim in fear and hapless despair whilst the defense can notch another victory to their contentious record of hoodwinking and contractual obfuscation. -- Beats me how they can sleep at night.
Old bigwig is also quite pleased with himself. He has successfully split up a family over some bungled immigration procedure, given a hapless wife-basher a second chance since moderate physical assertion should be part of traditional matrimony. And finally put this reckless criminal behind bars for exceeding the speed limit by 100 % (in a 40 zone). It’s all in a day’s work with enough time left for a game of golf. Only two more years to retirement on 200 K and then he can leave his sceptre permanently up where he likes it most. -- Oh what a feeling.
And somewhere down the slimy track our attorney checks his litigation diary for tomorrow’s feeding frenzy: A patron suing a restaurant for gross sanitary negligence. (expired toilet roll) Said litigant had to implement digital substitute resulting in emotional trauma and impaired appetite. Too easy! fifty K compensation on 40% no win no charge kickback, not bad for an hour’s work and so easy once one gets used to the dead fish dangling under one’s nose.
And this is what goes on in civil law without probing the murky thicket of political and corporate back-room dealings. Order or justice doesn’t even enter the equation and neither did it fly out the window. It was never there in the first place.
It's my opinion that humans when not in a state of confusion will naturally seek harmony with each other and when you have good laws that serve the public interest you can count on stability and security. But when those laws can be altered at the whim of those who can employ profit-junkie lawyers to manipulate justice for the benefit of the few, then you really don’t have any good laws left. Guess Shakespeare had it right when he said “first let’s kill all the lawyers”.
If a law makes sense I obey it. If it doesn’t make sense or is hypocritical, I ignore it. -- And so should you. America has 95 percent of the lawyers in the world. One and a halve million of them compared to 22 000 in Japan, It is called legal power and only serves the one who has it.
A lawyer is the larval stage of a politician, they both lie for a living. We have at present more at lie-school then we have already practising and they all want to drive BMW's one day. It will be litigious loony-land, to sue for anything from excessive flatulence to ogling the mammillas of your receptionist. Unless you can prove without a reasonable doubt that you are cross-eyed and gay.
The law prohibits the use of force by anyone except the law’
And what would our law be without its human crow-bars. -- Nearly every person I know of, has at some stage been subjected to harassment-level bullying or brutality and I mean decent upstanding citizens. 'May the force be with you' is all one can hope for because you are way up shit creek otherwise.
They are institutional terrorists and a law unto themselves. KGB, FBI, MI6 GESTAPO, S.W.A.T. or your local cop-shop, they all have two things in common: systemic corruption and endemic power abuse. -- They also believe that they can kick your ass or take whatever you have whenever they want, be that your freedom, your money, your girlfriend or your life.
Cops are morose and unpredictably paranoid about any challenge to their authority, and harassment is just a slam-bang conclusion, regarding the tide of collective resentment towards an institution awash with abuse, incompetence, corruption and disdain for truth. -- I have nothing against police, I'm just scared of them, or in keeping with Voltaire’s dictum: “It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong”.
Government is a parasitic and criminal class that claims a monopoly on force and the law serves that force. Dutifully parroting in lockstep with whomever has scrambled to the top of the current political pile. Naturally politicians are afraid of the people and cannot function without soldiers, bureaucrats, police, and henchmen of all sorts, for the masses may come to their senses. They could revolt and take action. Wielding the gun is a great deal more productive than wielding the vote and when ones only tool is a hammer all ones problems look like nails. Which is why they give them such sweeping powers along with ever more laws and scum-bag entitlements to cover their asses.
Police brutality is directly proportional to police corruption or boredom since nothing pleases a small mind more than the opportunity to crack a whip. "The first task of government is to establish a monopoly on violence". (G. Will)
“Putting uniforms on criminals doesn't make them good”. (A. Vaden) It is of course as always the obscure minority (90%) that gives the rest
a bad name. So, I'm not saying that they are all thugs, and neither is it always unprovoked. They are confronted with every conceivable human sludge in an increasingly brutal environment and if you have to work in the sewers you become numbed to the smell. I buy that, however, if the system persists in ignoring what is to some extent created by its failings in the first place, it has at least an obligation to deal with the outcomes in a civilised manner.
And for poetic justice, our 60K a year inmates are doing uni-degrees, ironically mostly in law because it doesn’t require brains and is the easiest one to obtain (and abuse). Which is OK, we all believe in rehabilitation but wouldn’t all that money be better spent by pre-habilitation like personal growth development with proper education.
“If justice doesn’t give us justice then it’s unjust justice”. (Carl Marx)
We have the world as evidence that decency is not a universal constant so let's face it: no amount of rules, regulations, or penalty is going to make a crooked arrow fly straight, and no legislation can make us love our neighbour when he is an A-grade dork. But we have to acknowledge the fact that he wasn’t born a dork. Statistically only 10% of all people are borne genetically stupid and the same goes for intelligence. The rest is either academically enhanced (educated) or subliminally retarded (brainwashed) and the ratio is defined by the global agenda of perception management. Laws dealing with racism and discrimination are dividing society even more when only familiarity and time can break down the barriers to harmony and understanding. Legality doesn’t equate morality and there is no magic that says that because a law is on the statute book it is morally acceptable. -- "As soon as laws are necessary for men, they are no longer fit for freedom." (Pythagoras)
If you have a twisted standard and you follow it just because your parents did, isn’t it still twisted? We know what happens to a population which is prepared to obey blindly. -- That tendency accounts for aberrations and atrocities from lynch-mob tribunals to kangaroo courts in the name of law and order or systemic inhumanity out of self-righteousness. Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal. Which is that even "good cops" are thugs because they exist to enforce all the tyrannical laws and edicts our rulers see fit to impose on us.
I used to marvel at how situations like Nazi Germany and similar tragic conditions came about. I no longer do. -- I'm watching it happen. In fact, we have a front seat to the systematic construction of what may prove to be the greatest fascist enterprise of all times.
"You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul." (M. Gandhi) -- My sentiment exactly
People learn to obey from cradle to grave and believe in their moral duty to abide whether a law is good or bad or impartial until it’s either changed or amended. -- The same as happens within 'dysfunctional' families. Children living with horrific abuse, even when given the opportunity to escape, they've convinced themselves that their lives are normal enough, and that getting out will accomplish nothing. Or that a different/new family might even be worse. -- Besides, it would be disloyal.
Consider also the "Stockholm Syndrome" where the subjects identify with their assailers in hopes of receiving a lesser punishment. Driven by fear and paranoia we respect and obey for the mere sake of it. Ergo we are guilty of gross moral irresponsibility towards real justice and human rights by leaving it to selective powers to decide who lives, who dies and what the result will be. This is the nuts and bolts of police state construct based on the system of law "enforcement".
The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power." (George Orwell)
All governments are based on coercion and force, from the mundane to the draconian. If you don't do what the government says, they will either make you do it, lock you up, take your property, torture you, or kill you. They have ways of doing it and they have camps to prove it. Coercion is exercising force to induce compliance. That's a given, and it seems to me an indisputable fact. -- Don't do what the government says, pay the price. Period.
And let’s face it, we are all guilty as charged. -- We do what's right, sure, but not because it 'is' right, but because we’ve learned to fear the impacts of doing what's 'not right'. -- Being law abiding has nothing to do with being a good citizen. It only means not bothering the cops, and the cops are neutral. They hate everyone and do whatever they damn well please anyway, which is why most of law abiding folk regard them with contempt and cynicism. They are never there when we really need them and the main objective of their existence is to monitor political correctness and to collect speeding fines.
It is therefore valid to conclude that this hideous juggernaut expects in its hubris that 'their' subjects will somehow remain content to vote, obey and keep pretending or even believing that it’ll all be fine. - And we’re proving them right, aren't we?
The primary function of justice is to restore harmony to the community and there is only one Moral-cum-Legal code that applies to everyone, everywhere and all the time. The reciprocity principle of mutual respect.
Thou shall not offend, thou shall not denigrate, demean, malign, impugn or degrade another living creature.
This is our statute book of the law of common decency. One simple clause devoid of absolutes threats of penalty or force of compliance. Equal rights for all and special rights for no none. – “A Fellowship of Equals;" And no exceptions. A good man needs no law and a crook is indifferent towards it anyway. Water finds its own way and so do we when left alone. -- And left alone we shall be.
It would be highly unlikely to find an undesirable or criminal element amongst us because our onus is on selective coexistence and you can't select yourself in. We as a community set our NORM and unless you agree with what we stand for, you’d be wasting your time. It should be clear from the foregone (and what follows) that there are born (O)'s and there are contrived (O)'s and it's not hard to spot the difference.
We provide a supportive environment to rehabilitate. Bad habits die hard but there is no pressure, little temptation and even less appreciation to persist. You will change without even knowing before your year is up but we will know when you don't. We have put up with whatever makes you one for a whole year and don’t need any more of it. -- As far as we are concerned it’s in your genes, and so be it.
You can keep your temper
we don’t want it.....
It is also a transitional period to integrate into a complete new life-style and some might resent it or different aspects thereof. -- Character and personality won’t change but perceptions and habits do. A person with a violent temper cannot pretend otherwise for a whole year and the same goes for dishonesty, greed or racism etc. -- Not many people realise, let alone admit their faults, but we will and we will tell them. Don’t get me wrong, it is not righteousness or moral hygiene. I am only talking about destabilising traits like aggression, dishonesty and so on with the real potential of unwhacking our laissez-faire life-style. It’s an imperfect world, if only because we cannot please everyone but balance is usually present when we are mindful of common courtesy.
Splendid life-style and peaceful harmony may be hard to come by, but once achieved it can be easily taken for granted. Our return to nature and basics philosophy may be too shallow for some seeking a more profound challenge in life which is fine as long as they leave us out of it. They can go and transform the real world. We have to be on strict guard. They can be extremely cunning and manipulative which is why there must be a categorical nixer on political, religious or fundamentalist doctrines either practised, lectured, lobbied or preached.
Never mind the dog, beware of the owner...
Politicians, who are mostly ex lawyers, trumpet their collective retardation and call it 'law and order', thus to be 'upheld' by swaggering jackbooted armed thugs and wigged 'justices'. But ironically it is the quintessence of law and order where our contemporary systems prove the most evidently inadequate. The first objective should be personal safety of the individual or on a more cynical note 'to protect us from each other'. Instead we are rattled by soaring crime rates and random violence where every one of us would have had his or her share of mugging, assault, vandalism, break-in, home invasion, or any other traumatic violations of personal security.
Our village will be a safe haven within and our ship provides a floating fortress to keep us out of harm’s way in case of geo-political or ecological turmoil. We can walk our street at night and our kids can play in public without the risk of harm or molestation. -- There will be no domestic or public violence and the only key we need is the one for our vehicles.
Of course unless we end up on an island, we have to obey by the law of our respective host nation as well as corporate laws regarding commercial activities, however I am sure we can entice a decent lawyer to exchange his ivory tower for a more bountiful habitat. I vaguely remember a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's plumber who apparently knew an honest lawyer. But I forgot who it was. (might be an extensive search but we only need ONE)
As you may have noticed, I haven’t mentioned justice in the context of law and order, for the simple reason that it has nothing to do with it. Justice is not revenge, reward or punishment, it is the law of karma or cause and effect. It cannot be enforced by statute or traditional pay-back, nor can it right a wrong. For example: when an American anti-abortion activist shot a surgeon at an abortion clinic, the US judiciary in turn imposed the death sentence on the activist. All three of them justified murder in accordance to their individual brand of rectitude. -- And it grows even more askew in the maelstroms of politics, patriotism, war and terrorism. Is it justice when Palestinians retaliate by killing every Jew in site including children? of course not. Despite of all my sympathy, It still can’t make it right. It merely doubles the wrong and makes contemptible savages out of both of them.
"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind" Gandhi.
Or when is a war-crime not a war-crime? A cynic would say: “when it is committed by the imperial NATO”. -- Or we could even venture as far as taxing the most judicious conundrum of foreign politics and dare to utter the unutterable: “is a soldier a murderer?” excuse me !!! Bloody oath he is, and by far the most wretched kind, if I may say so.
Most homicidal or unmandated killers murder out of a personal motive like jealousy, rage, money or a deceased mind of mental derangement. They are either screwed-up, or genetically subordinated (psychopathic) which largely defies rational contemplation. Nor can they kill on prime TV and instead of receiving a medal they are hunted down for vengeance, treated with contempt and rigorously punished. We still shudder when we talk about ‘Jack the ripper’ or ‘Charles Manson’ but that was insanity, drugs, compulsion or religion IOW a sick, crackbrained basket-case, or perhaps....? naaah that would be conspiracy.
And yet even what they did was a mere lullaby compared to the atrocities committed by our constitutionally privileged professionals, out of patriotic tit-for-tat idiocy or cold-blooded malice. A soldier kills mentally detached by superior edict, overtly and purely for mercenary sake. No why? or how come? or what for? ‘Kill and destroy’ has become an 'adventure-career option with free travel.' as titled in their recruiting adverts. - Is this a sick joke, or what?
They are mindless manipulated cyborgs (GI stands for Government Issue) morally bereft with a compassion bypass, and conditioned to destroy life with automated precision. -- Callously shooting, bombing, crushing, dicing clubbing, blasting, burning, hanging, raping, maiming, poisoning, starving drowning, gassing, torturing, and a myriad other humanity ending killing systems by which governments have inflicted death on mostly unarmed citizens and foreigners throughout recorded history. Bare of justification, persuasion or defense. -- "Kill them all, God will know his own" Abbot of Citeaux on "how can we tell the Heretics from our own people ?"
Families torn apart. Homes wrecked. Children orphaned. Emotional scars that never heal (add your own favourites). These are the realities of war. Destructive, barbaric, senseless and unproductive for no comprehensible reason other than employment, twisted ideology or what’s even worse indifferent, apathetic conformity. These flag sucking half-wits do not plan or organize the war. They do not seek to justify it or explain its causes. They are just taught to obey. -- Never mind the wanton devastation of collateral and environment.
"I'm a soldier, first last and only" To some war means comradeship, glory and courage but cut to the chase it translates comradeship out of despair, courage to survive and tribute for the victors where the elites get the loot and the foot soldiers get the glory. (which lasts about fifteen minutes.)
'Do onto others before they do onto you'. Excessive fondness for violence and the underlying detriment of human relations seems to be the dubious distinction shared by all human societies. Those who can force others to submit will deliberately do so until they meet a greater force. Out of the last 3500 years of recorded history, there were only 230 years of world peace. -- Like Karl Rove once said "we are an empire now, we create our own reality ruled by the sword, that's what empires do". until they meet a bigger sword.
I'll never forget the conceited sneer on the blustered face of some top-gun brat-warrior at gulf I. Exuberantly whooping "wahgonnakeeckaass" prior to blasting off the carrier deck. Mission log entry upon his heroic return would have stated: ‘target identified and destroyed’ whereupon CNN duly covered the target by featuring archive footage of a plume of smoke rising out of a rooftop. -- We never saw the carbonated imprints of vaporized humans like prehistoric cave paintings on concrete ceilings. Nor the boiling bilge of oil, blood and shredded body parts from five hundred civilians hemorrhaging the wreckage of Amiraya (a municipal basement shelter). 500 credit score to ace (O), game over insert more coins. Cool stuff aye? -- And no SH button.
Or the “Kursk” calamity where we all felt so sorry for those brave young submariners. Their weeping brides, parents and siblings beamed around the globe pulling the heartstrings of an ever receptive audience. Oblivious to the chilling indictment of each one of those gallant patriots having been psychologically primed to nuke millions on superior ordinance. (Sorry nothing personal). -- Yeah, they are our courageous push-button heroes, prepared to perish defending our inscrutable democracy, -- from what ??
“Armies eat while people weep””. -- Young dumb and full of come, legally stoned to their eyeballs and hyped to the gills by mind numbing Eminem staccato, pounding into obscurity whatever susceptible little brain there may have been languishing between their in-line speakers. Whoo-hoo!!! "The army gives us food, the army gives us drink, the army gives us everything, what need is there to think."
All warfare is based on deception and the more classified the more farcical it becomes. Like shit always rising to the top this is where the first chair- born divisions plot their intrepid obliteration gambits. A decorated clot of retarded mouth-breathers consigning the lives of millions by cluster-bomb and daisy-cutters safe and secure out of their air-conditioned D. U. M. B.’s (deep underground military base), like kids playing Nindendo.
"Finding no guilt in sending the sons and daughters of others to fight the wars they wage so eloquently in their heads as they sit in front of their screens, guiding to their deaths those they never met........"
“It's our country, right or wrong”. -- There is a right way and there is a wrong way and there is the military way (Guantanamo). Have you ever wondered why top military leaders never say or do anything intelligent? Here is one of Gen. Schwarzkopf’s fabled antics: "it is up to God to find forgiveness, we are only here to arrange the meeting". Whilst millions of applauding TV junkies salute with their remotes, gorging in collective delirium on symbiotic patriotism blathered by glossy overpaid news presenters serving up sickening sound-bites to chips and beer.
For weeks on end just blistering scenes of dead Iraqis maimed and killed by the historic triumph of the superpowers cowardly attack on one of the poorest countries. “This conflict has been proudly brought to you by CNN” Warnography as militainment. Just support the troops. -- While they kill women and children for pseudo patriots whose only real concern is how to stay in power, how to get more power and how to pervert that power.
What can we expect? NBC is wholly owned by G.E. which as we know is one of the major arms manufacturers… To be continued.
“What is necessary is cruel and strong reactions. We need precision in time, place, and casualties. If we know the family, we must strike mercilessly, women and children included. Otherwise, the reaction is inefficient. At the place of action, there is no need to distinguish between guilty and innocent.” David Ben-Gurion
Chauvinism, militarism, imperialism. The higher the monkey climbs the better one can see its ass which goes for nearly all of our belligerent breast-beaters, thanks to us. -- Too right !! thanks to us, for they could call as many wars they please, if nobody would turn up they’d be left up there playing with their armpits. “There can be no braver decision than sending our proud sons and daughters to war” -- ardently oinked by one of our MP’s glossing on John Howard’s declaration to join the Busch cabal. “We despise war but we support our troops” blah, blah, blah, and another monumental oxymoron. -- How could there be war without troops.
“Fools will always follow when bad men lead the way”. Zio-con head honcho and then secretary of state H. Kissinger’s personal opinion was aptly expressed in an interview with Washington Post: “military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy” and of course the same applies to his regard for ordinary citizens, but that’s another subject. "Let us do evil that good may come"; the elitist rationale of macro-social psycho-pathologic consequence.
To be human in essence is to be humane wherefore reasonable people would innately deny unreasonable acts that are inconsistent with human nature. It is the most despicable violation of human rights to coerce a peaceful person into the moral somersault of taking innocent life's in the most gruesome fashion imaginable.
I'm sure our splendid warriors can't be all callous brutes and morons, so tell me how on earth can someone be bullshitted into making the ultimate sacrifice or become a murderer, on orders issued by some little shit of a personage whose mental state corresponds to the routine criteria for mandatory psychiatric confinement. Instead of sitting on death row or in prison, these mass murderers give speeches and send others to illegal wars that are justified by fatuous lies that have been exposed a hundred times over. It makes you wonder why they don't wonder, doesn't it? Well the whole blasted world is upside down, that’s why, and we’re all bending over looking at it from between our legs so we can perceive it as rational.
What bothers me most of all is how little it takes to impair these people’s ability to reason. How little it takes to instill cultural paranoia and most of all how little it takes to enhance a hero mentality in which loving parents can live with the sacrifice of their offspring to the corporate gods. All that is needed is a contrived perception of being victims of retaliation instead of the aggressor. They wouldn't lie to us... would they? -- "Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel" People must be programmed to believe into fighting evil by the will of god so they don't realise that the real peace threatened is corporate economics rather than national security.
The unspeakable truth is that their sons and daughters, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers died for nothing and thousands of limbs have been blown off for the sake of GE and Wal-Mart. There are various ways to fool people and one of them is the instinctive way psychopaths lie and tell them what they want to hear i.e. the glorification of sacrifice for the corporate ideal. Most folks are at war with themselves, wherefore it doesn’t take much for them to be at war with others.
J. Madison: "if tyranny and oppression come to this land, it'll be under the guise of fighting a foreign enemy".
Give him a little TV news and he is ready to go to war with people he has never met, in places he has never been, for reasons he will never grasp. He cannot know the facts, or even the theory, he doesn't know shit what he's buying, but he's ready to pay with his life. -- Al I can say to them is what the hell are you doing? You have children and grandchildren too. For God’s sake, wake up, grow up and get informed before you enforce a prison-state on your own families.
Those who have seen Hotel Rwanda will remember that it only took a radio station and some crack-brained shock jock to ignite a one million machete wielding killing orgy. "Do Not adjust your mind . The fault lies with reality" Wish it was that easy. Reality begs to differ and common sense is just not going to cut it for me at a fundamental level. There's simply no logic to any of this. -- But there is always an AGENDA.
With a big ol' lie -- and a flag and a pie,
and a mom and a bible, -- most folks are liable.
To by any line, -- any place anytime. (Frank Zappa)
Then there’s always another summit meeting with a so called compromise reached and another leaders election promise credited for 'bringing the boys home'. Which makes it even more infuriating for never knowing why they were sent there in the first place. -- No closure apart from a medal and “you can go home now”. Well, they call it honorable discharge whilst their opinion about the "dumb, stupid animals," remains unchanged.
How do people become complicit? Complicity is ‘knowledge and consent’ according to Webster’s Dictionary and consent is acquiescence. -- It happens when we accept, believe in, or promote, the methods used to achieve it. Without exception those methods purport to be 'for the greater good' hence we are drawn into the function of conforming drones for our own advantages made seemingly real by the collective belief of the deceived. Even a culture of 'go along to get along' tends to make us compliant ergo complicit.
“Combat desensitizes the human heart. It’s a form of pornography whose intent is to damage the human spirit and kill the soul and that’s what ‘they’ are ultimately all about, capturing the human soul. They can’t actually kill it but they can make you believe it is dead.” (Les Vis)
A war is never over when it’s over. "...You can check out any time you want but you can never leave"... so the song goes. -- Rumsfeld dismissed the massive destruction of Iraqi society as the "messiness of freedom" but he ignores the messiness of 'collateral damage'. Unleashing the personal demons from their cages always is part of what this is doing to all parties for many years to come. (Abu Grahb, Haditha, Mai Lai, etc.) To quote a former CIA interrogator (torturer): "When you cross that line of darkness, it's hard to come back. You lose your soul. You can do your best to justify it, but you can’t go to that place without it changing you."
The war within can last a lifetime. I still know a few WW2 veterans who were drafted at age 16 with dreams and inclinations of becoming artists, farmers, or doctors 'after the war', but they came home as murderers and never got over their nightmares. -- Only soldiers in combat see the myth used to send them to war implode. They see that war is not clean or neat or noble, but venal and frightening. They see into war’s essence, which is death, but then it’s too late. -- All men have a darker side which is what makes them capable of killing and we also know how quickly that beast within swallows the human facade.
So much negativity must find release at some point, and war shows us what that darker uncivilised side is capable of when it gains the upper hand. -- Biology alone could never account for the evil that is in the human heart and our wretched rulers know that too well. Some weird animal research has it that once hamsters get a taste for blood, they'll have to be put down or they will devour each other alive. I know we have many other things in common with hamsters but this is freaky stuff.
Military is a culture and consequently defies logic which would otherwise make contemptible felons out of proud freedom fighters, conquerors or for what it’s worth presidents, prime-ministers, chancellors, dictators and the minions, shills and media whores who devotedly serve them. Elected smug thugs wearing suits and smiles, sitting in their comfortable high orifices and leading other husbands or wife’s, other parents, other children like lam to the slaughter, but never experience action on their own prodigious selves. Those self-chosen self-worshippers with no link to their own souls, trumpet, promote, finance, coerce and provoke whilst publicly portraying themselves as caring honest individuals.
One feels reluctant to categorise JFK, Thatcher, Clinton, Bush or the three stooges, Sarkozy, Brown, Obama, et al. to the ranks of war criminals, yet these monsters have the power to turn people into slaves and none will see or acknowledge the fact. They become blinded by the short term gain of employment but ignore the long term consequences of supporting beasts that kill maim and pillage with an almost autistic indifference towards the thoughts and feelings of humanity and Mother Earth.
They are right up there with the most sickening self-righteous mass-murderers in hell, along with Lenin, Pol-Pot and Mao. At least those were idealists, defending their revolution 'by any means possible' as Stalin proclaimed. Begs to wonder about what our elected leaders are defending apart from Westinghouse, Microsoft or Oil-pipelines ? -- Well, any which way you look at it, bottom line is: there would not be war without them, period, end of story.
Just consider history and reflect upon the atrocities, our world-leaders and the military under their command have inflicted. What did any of these "leaders" ever create but destruction and death for those beneath them? They create NOTHING - instead they extort from us the fruit of our labor, and that energy is used to our general detriment and to support a gang of psychopaths that are convinced they are entitled to all of it. Hitler has never killed anyone, personally... and neither has Bush. Yet, both of them effectively appropriate the moral status of serial killers.
We now find ourselves quagmired in such a bog of lies, cheating, and corruption, that they count on normalizing this behavior by just the sheer magnitude of which they are persevering. They mesmerise themselves into thinking they're actually better than the bottom 99% of humanity and believe that no lie is too outrageous or transparent. But by their horrific means to attain their 'ends' they show to be the LAST people and the LAST interests we should ever yield to have control over us.
And by knowing that even they are not the top of the pile, contemplating any further stretches my perception to the point of numbness let alone finding words for it. All I can say is that I have a lump in my throat right now while writing this and feel like I could just scream.
"I guess all one can really say is – congratulations to all you elite white men. You had a long, patient, and masterful plan. We are seemingly as stupid as you expected us to be. We choose your totalitarianism, your all-encompassing economic controls, your corporate wars, and your eugenic selections of choice. Your chaos certainly rules all days, and we are most certainly your Communitarian servants serving your greater financial good. Well played…albeit insidious. Hegel would be proud". © 2009 Nancy Levant
Yes folks, whichever way you slice it, taking life is killing and killing unless in self-defense is murder which applies to soldiers as it does to assassins and criminals. We are basically all the same just winding up on different sides. Martyr or murder makes no difference whoever has to die is always someone else’s son, father, daughter, brother, sister mother or relative.
But that doesn’t count with the politically designated civilian enemy who’s on the other side of the world and has never done harm to anyone.
Like this dear old soul who was born in Austria, educated in Italy, wedded in Yugoslavia, buried in Croatia and 'never left her village'. Know what I mean? She’s been through three major wars, three different regimes from monarchy to communism to democracy, probably lost a son or husband in the process, endured the hardship of freezing winters in her bombed and raided village with a few rapes and famines thrown in for good measures and what for? So that every time a different pompous ass could replace the previous on top of that steaming pile of crap known as politics. Whilst apart from currency, language, and another bloody flag on that bloody pole nothing ever changes. Or at least not for the better.
And in retrospect, we see that there was never anything at stake worth fighting over. -- It just kept going until millions were dead, and almost every government of Europe was either toppled or broke, -- usually both.
The Hapsburgs, the Romanoffs, the Hohenzollerns, the Ottoman Empire etc. all died in the trenches and then 20 years later a new generation was ready for another worldwide war because they always fail to remember that Empires benefit only a few and always at the cost of the majority. Historically, whenever they rise they fall in direct proportions which raises the obvious: could we be headed into another dark period in history? Don't know... looks more like it's already under way only this time it won’t be merely another ‘Great War’ The coming generations may refer to it as ”The Great Chaos”.
Every communities moral code contains an injunction against murder but there is nothing like war to sanctify paranoia, to make racism patriotic, to make killing honorable, to make prejudice the norm and to openly hate the enemy. (And the enemy could be anyone you hate) The result is that people keep on butchering each other and never understand why wars don't stop. But how can they stop as long as we keep fighting each other instead of the instigator. Tell you why: We do it because we allow illusion and suggestion without independent thought. That’s why! It can only be understood if one stops and thinks. Thoughts are real things, and when awareness reaches critical mass change occurs. Collective consciousness will turn the tide and the miscreants will go the way of the dinosaur. Virtue should be defined as the result of learning from one's sins, not from having never committed them. -- Too late for that.
A testimony from a woman at the center of the Darfur crisis. "My baby boy was thrown into the fire in front of me. My daughter was older. They thought she was a boy so they slaughtered her too - they snapped her neck like a chicken. Some of the children they threw down a well... After they raped the women they cut off their breasts...... (New Internationalist, June 2007)
Even in peace times soldiers are apart from being no-good-for-anything economic parasites, just a soulless bunch of prancing, dick-wagging, macho-maniacs with the moral depth of a gnat. They are primarily trained to kill people or break things und lumped together with politicians and clerics just a daily reminder of how deformed, nonsensual, fraudulent and subdued our morose existence really is.
They did CHOOSE to go there, no matter what their reasons or reasoning. I don't care whether they kill, work in the kitchen or even as a Chaplain, they still knowingly support a machine that tortures and kills people on a daily basis. -- They do not make or sell anything, nor do they provide any service. They do not need customers nor do they need to make a profit. They cannot be sent broke nor be fired in fact if the armed forces went on strike, no one would even notice.
We always whine about cops, tax collectors and public servants sponging on the system which are at least revenue creators. But never a grumble over defense-spending let alone the wisdom of it, which is of course the mechanism of future martial-law and the militarisation of civil institutions. To create a police state in the guise of security, wielded by brute force and lies. Behind the euphemism of defense-force lurks the contemptuous evil of tyranny, martial/corporate law i.e. Gestapo.
Patriot- Acts the enabling legislation for the Fourth Reich now fully applied and finally, we will see that we were the targets all along and not foreign terrorists. Get used to it, or act accordingly because now is the time for cold calculated deliberation. While the elites panic and the masses freak out, we must remain calm and alert. We are beyond resistance and too far into the game for protesting or civil disobedience. “The Secret of Happiness is Freedom, The Secret of Freedom is Courage”
And nor does it end there. There is a new kid on the block by the name of Non Government Organisations (NGO's) as in UN, NATO, CFR, WTO, IMF etc. which as we know is nothing new on the outset, but the elite agenda is to place self appointed civil entities into active authority of governance. A global neighbourhood wielded by a worldwide bureaucracy under direct authority of a handful of individuals and policed by legions of mercenaries on their tax-payer funded payroll. Aka, the New (under) World Order. In other words total privatisation accredited by NGO control described as 'expanding democracy'.
This is no conspiracy theory, folks. They don't need to conspire for they are not democratically elected and answer to no one except their board. And as we know most CEOs control their board rather than the other way around. A private self appointed environmental group (in conjunction with Monsanto) will then become the governing board of UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) The agency which controls our atmosphere our biodiversity and our oceans. And it's the polluters who’ll be running these agencies.
Or the corporate military monster with over 100 000 private contractors presently commissioned in Iraq (Blackwater, Brown and Root, Halliburton, Carlyle etc). Security companies are networking into forming the largest private Army with its own hardware and pooled intelligence. Arguably the fastest growing industry with ‘operations’ in 50 countries, two illegal wars, and a few more on the way.
I don't know what's going to stop them but this is what happens when government becomes a front for corporations. -- Given that threats of martial-law were used to get this reprehensible bail-out legislation passed it is entirely appropriate to redefine the Army's role as one of controlling the people instead of protecting them. -- BTW, Martial Law is now an obsolete term replaced by Corporate Lawshoot first ask later guerrilla entrepreneurs where only force matters. Whatever the cost and whatever the bloodshed. And how is that for irony: a criminal record put a restriction on getting drafted for Vietnam whereas now criminals are the preferred recruits. They’d bomb their own family for profit and many more are now dying for lies and greed. -- And I suspect there are a multitude of new weapons and methods we have never even heard of. due to national and even foreign subcontractors. -- They mark the regimented evolution of the mercenary trade. Established by ex spooks and generals turning professional hit-men into fully funded cold-blooded
"Trained to kill and kill we will." They just love being paid to look tough and bully the populace into submission. Also keep in mind that those protoplasmi robo-cops will someday end up patrolling your own burbs on round-ups of "insurgent citizens" likely to move against the government. And the larger they become the more contracts (wars) will be required. Peace would become a dirty word, just like cure for cancer research, or healing for Club-Med. which inevitably raises the next market already lobbied for "peace-keeping" of course, what else....
Imperialism and corporate super-swine have taken up every area where entrepreneurs once thrived and perhaps it is so late in the game that the bad guys can show themselves, for even though we know who they are, there is nothing we can do, -- apart from doing nothing.
A government that can give you everything you want is coercive enough to take everything you have. And if you think for a second Mr. Cool Dude will be different you are a fool. He's already pledged his unconditional faith to Israelism -- and just look at his capitalist, Zionist, right-wing, neo con warmonger cabinet. I thought it would be Cheney/Bush who'd lead the coup de grace, but that was premature. They’ve left it to Mr. Change himself to knee-cap the incontrovertible lockdown.
Isn't it alarming how one can slip into a fascist dictatorship without the general population realising it. In fact, I've even had people tell me they'd rather not think about it! These people are going to be caught completely unaware and unprepared. -- How will they react? Well, predictable as always, first comes denial, then anger, bargaining, depression, despair and finally acceptance.
As obvious to anyone, the average man is no intellectual and half the population is either hypnotized, ignorant or demented anyway. He is not going to spend his precious leisure time speculating on how the military- industrial complex works. Instead, he's to get behind the man in uniform. In his patriotic ignorance, he'll support his leading industry by waving his tired blood stained flag until it ruins him. One thing is certain, he should be more afraid of his government than anything else for ultimately ‘total lockdown’ leads to total corruption -- and total slavery of the masses.
Another (related) aspect to be concerned about, should be those REX 84 camps cropping up on numerous remote locations all over the place. The largest, in Alaska has a rumored 2.5 million capacity, featuring airstrips and railheads, gun-towers, concrete walls and inwards curved razor wire fences. There are over a thousand of them (and counting), and they are real. Push-button ready and vacant, but to what purpose? It’s all about making you people safe, right? Yeah sure, one of these days we are going to be really safe, just wait, they are getting ready, -- And so should we.
Remember, guns will only protect you from your desperate neighbors who have failed to prepare, but not from the Terminator. So if your question is "what can I, as a single person do?" the answer is, not a damn thing. The river of history is about to head into white water. -- The tide is too strong, the battle is lost and I fully expect this to get ever more violent. ‘Violence begets violence’. We all know what's coming next.. It's the only way they can complete the coup.
All of this is leading in one direction and we’ve been warned for decades. 'One world government and global depopulation'. -- Part of a ten-year Homeland Security strategic plan, code-named ENDGAME. -- They don't mince words, do they? Too many useless eaters? Simple. Kill them. Better yet, have them kill each other, legally termed as 'negligent homicide'.
In a totally unfettered marketplace foxes are now guarding the hen-house because the system has been made self-regulatory. Martial Law is an act of war against the people and anyone who still hasn't got it figured out is making a pretty clear statement about themselves.
BUT !! what happens when even martial law fails and implodes within? When corrupt commanders mutate into rag tag collections of renegade warlords? I can't think this through right now and only wish that I hadn’t taken that red pill. But what really worries me is their genetically moronic mindset and exclusive access to all military and civil supplies, -- incl. us.
Being the psychopaths they are, they will gladly slaughter everything in their path including their previous handlers and any remaining military units who might oppose, but more likely join them. Go, ask the people in New Orleans who came to help them, and what they did first. Did they evacuate the people? Did they give them medical aid and food? Water? Anything? -- No, they stormed houses, confiscated guns, and shot people trying to get loaves of bread floating down the streets. Each one of these ‘emergencies’ i.e. Haiti will present an opportunity to reconfigure the local order into the New World Order and I'm sure you know where that ends.
This, along with Fallujah, Abu Grahb and the Baghdad shoot out poses a grim taste of what's in store. -- The ultimate Wild West scenario: Have gun, will travel.
....I also look at war itself a little differently from most. I see it largely as an exercise in dick-waving. That's really all it is: a lot of men standing around in a field waving their dicks at one another. Men, insecure about the size of their penises, choose to kill one another. You needn't be a historian or a political scientist to see the Bigger Dick Foreign Policy at work. It goes like this: 'What? They have bigger dicks? Bomb them!' And of course, the bombs, the rockets, and the bullets are all shaped like penises. Phallic weapons. There's an unconscious need to project the national penis into the affairs of others. It's called 'fucking with people' So as far as I'm concerned, that whole thing in the Persian Gulf is nothing more than one big dick-waving cockfight. (George Carlin)
Sorry, lost track, where was I ? Justice ? -- Justice is humanity, it is not done or given in a court-room or battlefield. One cannot expect it from the very forces that are based on the contrary. Justice has nothing to do with legality but concludes out of basic values or the bank of karma where virtue is debited or credited depending on your action. What goes around comes around and law and order has nothing to do with it.
In a sane society we are bound together by laws and understandings. Those laws are stuff that we commonly agreed upon. Our understandings are based on what we took from experience and it is a fool that doesn’t learn from that. But, this is not a sane society, nor time. This is a time of upheaval. This is a time of change and a time of sorting out. It is also a time where the worst elements among us have gained the upper hand in strength and power. However, the chilling reality is that these mugs do a lot of damage on their way down and I have little doubt that it is going to be very unpleasant.
When people are left alone they tend to behave in a natural way. But the more they are interfered with the more problems appear and the more order is yet again required. Laws are only as useful as the people who administer them, which is precisely why we need them. They are good if they are good laws but our statutory scenery is now littered with political correctness that will grant rampant entitlements without civic obligations. Regrettably ‘littered’ is a befitting term for most of them are rubbish. As that old Roman Senator Tacitus said, "the more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the state"! Let’s not forget that how things are depends on how ‘we’ are. If we want more we have to become more.
We do have our unwritten laws of mutual conduct and civilised propriety, governed by courtesy. Some may occasionally stretch our larrikin margin but I can assure you of the safest most genuine social order system on this planet without a cop in sight. It is not getting tough, it is getting real by anarchy in its true context. The 'Do It Yourself ' law and order, based on the responsibility of self-control, collective freedom, self-management and intrinsic commonality. -- I define anarchy as where there is no legal possibility for coercive aggression against person or property. -- Every human being has an intrinsic knowledge of what’s right or wrong. Follow those rules and shun the ones who don’t.
They say “freedom is eternal vigilance” -- and I say "vigilance is eternal paranoia" ergo: 'Paranoia will destroy ya'. But unlike the SQ we do not have to incarcerate our scum. We keep it out in the first place and return it in case it develops or sneaks past our combined judgment. We do not need vigilance we simply banish. Not to punish but for our own safety and social order.
Just because we are not at war doesn’t mean there is peace. -- We live in turbulent times with even more uncertainty and confusion ahead, which may pose a potential hazard for our whole community depending on the political stability of our host nation. We have to abide by their system as long as we can be confident about its integrity, however, we are not going to hang around copping the barbs in case things go wobbly. -- With the emerging truth about the Waco massacre and the documented cover-up on Jones-Town anything can happen. Sometimes all it takes is bad politics or red-neck mentality to send the shit flying, -- and we’ll have to duck the splatter.
No matter how sedentary and law-abiding we are, fact is, we are different and Big Brother is inherently paranoid when it comes to dissenters, rebels or even saboteurs and terrorists, depending on their current perception. Being prosperous, happy and affluent creates jealousy and envy but most of all, it breeds suspicion. -- We want to be sovereigns not citizens. Not secessionists but never the less advocate our own status. Like universal Gypsies with allegiance to each other instead of governments or nations. In other words, non-compliant, non-aligned, universal dwellers and no country’s 'subjects'.

Welcome to the new world
We have excelled in taking the world apart.....
and lost the vision of how it still fits together. As shocking and horrifying these conclusions may sound, they are nonetheless only the threshold. Contemporary mind-control is ramping up for the big times. -- No more godly fear and brimstone and no more rigged elections, corruption or dirty tricks to spoof an unsuspecting society. The new agenda is blanket brain invasion via psychotropic robotomy.
A monstrous upgrade from the in-use forms of crude mental manipulation to the up and coming satellite microwave invasion of our psycho-spiritual intellect. -- Millions of defenceless minds can forthwith be simultaneously manipulated, violated, or even terminated with neuropathic solutions by invisible radiation and soundless, electromagnetic frequencies. All without knowing that their very humanity and ability to think has been altered or taken away from them. Regan started project Star-Wars under the bogus euphemism of strategic missile defense, but what they are really doing is seriously messing with the upper atmosphere and apart from the agenda of fucking our minds there is now the terrifying potential of irreversible damage on a global or even cosmic scale.
High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project’ (HAARP) well concealed and off-limits in Gacoma Alaska, Finland et.al. is the ultimate in ‘science out of control’ and may well be the world’s most horrific devise ever created. The idea in thumbnail few is to beam stupendous boosts of focused energy to the ionosphere or the moon and then pulsed back onto controlled locations to penetrate our bodies, the ground and our oceans (Tesla technology). It can trigger earthquakes on demand, nuclear size explosions without radiation, induce tsunamis, or manipulate climate. And of course exultingly unifying mind control by frequency bombardment to pierce the very integrity of the human being.
This is invisible subliminal electro-magnetic rape and violates our most basic civil rights by altering mood and thought. - God help us if and when they achieve full competence with this and by looking at weather patterns and global changes from that angle we get a fair idea of their progress. It beggars the imagination unless we still believe in Santa which is Spanish for El Niño. Copious weather modifying technologies have been patented in the US alone and many more are being developed in civilian, academic and military labs around the world right now. Earthquake technology has existed since the time of Nikola Tesla and today is likely to be a lot more advanced, along with geophysical weapons and weather ‘acclimatization’.
There seem to be no limits but it wouldn't be the first time that everybody was wrong (flat earth). The motor of evolution is not natural selection, it is climate. Ice and fossil evidence demonstrates previous glacial collapses within a decade caused by the Achilles heel of our climatic system which is the global heat-pump or ocean conveyor known as Gulfstream.
Solar imbalance, global warming or pole-shifts could precipitate such phenomenon, but so could human tampering through energy beam technology and space laser weaponry. The godfather of space-travel Wernher v. Braun maintained that the effort to put weapons into space wasn’t only based on a lie but would accelerate past the point of people even understanding it until it’s already up there and too late." (Testimony of his secretary Dr. Carol Rosin, in “NEXUS” ).
Technology for environmental modification is a frightening aspect by any measure but in the hands of the military with national security mandate we wouldn’t have a clue what they’re up to, except that it’ll be as mean as cat-shit. -- Pax-Americana is quite literally going ballistic and their Air-Force is now officially (self-proclaimed) ‘executive agent for space’. Apart from the Moon they also own the weather and this is their progress given by Air-Force General Judd Blasdale: “We are so dominant in space that I pity any country that would ever dare to come against us”. A dominance of Atlantean consequences perhaps? In other words: the earth and the sky have themselves been turned into weapons capable of killing billions, destroying economies and fundamentally altering the course of history.
It seems not even outer space is the limit for the breathtaking heights of audacity reached by people so far out of touch with reality that they think they can actually defy cosmic laws with privileged impunity and if this is not insanity, then someone tell me what is?
Less than three percent of DNA functions involve protein formation whilst more than ninety percent operates in the realms of bio-acoustic and bio-electric signaling. One can therefore envisage the development of electro- magnetic energy sources, that will afford to control emotions, (and thus actions) induce sleep, transmit suggestions or interfere with memory bio-energetics and interface micro-chipping. Weaponised satellite spy systems nanotronics, ELF and RF waves and the far-out Area 51 stuff are all within the capability of HAARP.
Make no mistake, they exist, they are liberally applied and predominantly in the wrong hands. Another devious advantage is that this can be, or is already being done without a formal declaration of war and it would appear that the military may now be able to completely control the minds of the civilian population without a shot being fired.
“The day after tomorrow” becomes a lot less fictional in the light of their scientists pugnacious attitude of “lets kick this thing into gear and see what happens” with absolutely no assurance that damage on irreversible global scales won't occur. When the first A-bomb was tested there was serious concern about a chain-reaction or some undeterminable trigger scenario, but guess what, -- they did it anyway.
This is nihilistic, meddling with ‘our’ ionosphere and by the same token bound to eventually interfere with the dynamic pattern that binds us all to the living soul of the world i.e. the earth's magnetic field. And for what it’s worth: the reduction of greenhouse gas would now be too little too late anyway for the 'natural' cooling and virtual stoppage of the Gulf-Stream is already an irreversible process.
We are essentially electromagnetic, rather than chemical beings and wave interaction is a key influence of biological functioning. Natural or artificial changes in SR (Schumann Resonance) could affect brainwave generation and resulting phenomena such as REM, PSI, ESP and natural healing. Or mental disorder, antisocial behaviour, ADD, inconsistent cell development, psychosomatic conditions and neurological disturbances etc. -- It is also sobering to ponder that after eight decades of brain imaging studies, we still haven’t figured out where EEG voltages actually originate.
But what we do know is that EEG bio-feedback could be an effective tool for meditation, from alpha/theta neuro-training, to accessing mystical and metaphysical consciousness. -- This revolution is driven by rapid advances in ever more potent brain monitoring along with applied neuro-technology Could this herald the golden age of consciousness enhancement with superhuman mystical/spiritual and mental ability? -- changing us into a more evolutionary advanced species of humanity, as predicted by ancient Yogis, Gnostics and Shamans referred to as the shift of the ages for 2012. Well, it could for us !!
"If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain" (Morpheus)
We are now stuck between our animal past which is still hard-wired into our brains, and our fully human potential which is the natural evolutionary stage that produces human evil in all its horror. -- The core of this change will require a dramatic alteration of our minds which involves a conscious participation in evolution itself. -- It’s happening alright but regrettably in the wrong direction. We now have the methods (brainwave entrainment) allowing us to transcend our limited consciousness and its application is abundantly evident, in selling Coca-Cola and political agendas. IOW the essence of our evolution must be the evolution of our intelligence.
We have engineered ourselves into a counterfeit reality with our mental faculties suspended in synthetic animation and bogus artificiality. We’ve lost most of our natural instincts and if we don't dramatically change our minds and our realty itself, there’ll be serious trouble. We have to literally reverse-engineer out of this intermediary stage and as alarming as this may sound it could be a path away from and not towards more evil.
Brain monitoring technology like Positron Emission Tomography, magnetic imaging and cognitive neuro-sciences along with Audio Entrainment which goes back to drums and didgeridoos. These technologies could allow us to transcend our consciousness and to change our world in unrecognisable ways by unlocking the fast potential within us, as affirmed by mystics and shamans of the past.
Let’s focus on what we could be instead of what we are or have been. (opportunity-gap) Global healing instant meditation, self-hypnosis, mental programming, and the enormous potential of psychopharmacology, psychedelics and transpersonal psychology as a link between the psyche and the spirit. We could if we want to! It’s all there and patiently waiting for our immersed integrity to surface.
But so is benevolent technology objective media, remedial medicine, true education, good science, even honest politicians? Naah.. geddouddahere!
I think most human brains have the potential for a much higher level of sophistication if given the right environment to thrive in. And look what happens? -- We use all our technology and imagination not to uplift humanity, but to dumb it down! To keep people stupid! To turn them into mindless consumers since no one has ever taught them anything deeper than looking out for number one.. They do not even know that they are repeating the same shit over and over since they do not remember what happened only 10 years ago, and most of what they believe to know is a deliberate lie anyway.
The new digital TV switch along with carrier frequencies of mobile phone towers, radio towers, GWEN towers and HAARP are all segments of our collective electro-magnetic prison. -- Make no mistake, this is a war for our minds and our future. Either we take to the woods now or we die slaves or serfs later.
It will definitely take some metaphysical force to reinstitute justice on this planet and when one realises that a human being can be operated like a puppet from a distance, or killed with a frequency device that looks like a remote-control, or manipulated in their sleep, or even grown in a lab, then the scenarios of what is possible (or likely) become to say the least incomprehensible. But trust me it’s all there, and I don't mean 'out there'.
So keep those thoughts while you still have them, the time is coming when you will no longer know whether those thoughts are your own or not. I think it was when that guy said, "I wouldn't believe that, even if it were true". -- With logic like this, how can Humanity possibly survive?
May 1999: a neuro-scientist conference sponsored by the UN in Tokyo. Its final declaration formally acknowledges: "Today we have intellectual and financial resources to master the power of the brain itself, and to develop devices to touch the mind and even control or erase consciousness...." and here it comes -- 'We wish to profess our hope that such pursuit of knowledge serves peace and welfare'. -- Yeah right.
It is not a sign of good health to be well adjusted to a sick society.
Millions of individuals in developed societies are maimed and killed with impunity by Big-Pharma and their patsy physicians. This brotherhood of death is still smugly protected by the silent conspiracy of the medical practices act from the early twenties. Granting them total immunity of criticism by mainstream media (for what it’s worth) and from within. In other words: a physician can be the most incompetent butcher this side of Camp David and we wouldn’t hear a peep from his syndicated fraternity.
They are without any doubt the most predatory, meanest and heartless monopoly ever concocted and they keep getting away with it because we are still awed and transfixed by their classic symbolism from the times of unquestioning submissive doctor-patient relationships. The white coat and the years of lofty academia represented in those framed degrees is still deeply ingrained within our traditional awe and believe system, hence we trustingly lace our kids with Ritalin and remain hooked on Prozac because that's what the Doctor ordered. It verges on blasphemy to even suggest that the kindly high-priest with the stethoscope could be a charlatan, fraud or legal drug pusher who has just won another convention trip from Pfizer to the sunny Maldives for a salesman of the year award....
If there is anyone you should trust less than a lawyer, it's a doctor for bodily integrity is the most fundamental right to protect people from any hurt happening to one’s health without their consent. Yet this is precisely what is being violated on a daily rate by so called experts who have colluded with the forces going against the precautionary principle of public health: ‘first do no harm’
It is no longer about health it’s about your choice of disease. -- 50% of all administered drugs are either unsafe or unnecessary. -- Adverse drug reaction is now the major cause of death even before heart decease and cancer. This leaves the sickening implication of institutional reluctance to prolong life and makes a grotesque mockery of the virtuous Hippocratic oath as the foundation of orthodox medicine. Which incidentally they have stopped taking. -- Hippocrates was in fact a dietician and the father of modern naturopathy who said 2000 years ago: "let the food be your medicine and the medicine be your food" (can’t have that can we?) But they did retain the ‘snake’ in the Medical Staff Logo.
"If the doctors of today do not become the nutritionists of tomorrow, then the nutritionist of today will become the doctors of tomorrow" (Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research.) -- look who’s talking!!!
Up to now, medic's were never culpable for lying, malpractice or outright manslaughter and blatantly veiled from scrutiny under their obscure code of ethics. The only reason why this is slowly changing is the every bit as corrupt and ruthless litigation industry. This in turn is spawning exorbitant insurance premiums and reducing professional conduct to preset rules or text-books in order to cover their asses.
And again it is us paying the bill in more ways than just financially. There could be a cure with a dedicated decent doctor but unless it is a hundred percent litigation-proof, -- too bad. And even more people will have to die from catch 22, so what can we do about it? how can we win? All we can do is to anticipate where this is heading. On our own we’d just keep on dying to find out, but together we can take responsibility away from its present Doctatorship and concentrate on establishing our own self-health anarchy by seeing illness as not happening to us but a psychosomatic grid which 'is' us.
Ask yourselves, should this responsibility rest on monolithic drug cartels, corrupt politicians and self-interest lobbies? Or should it be determined by free will and communal compassion. Should a terminally ill patient die with the comforting certainty that also everything outside the realms of disease management was applied to his cure? Or should he die from accredited ignorance and unverifiable (dis)assembly-line routine therapy?
I am not usually into statistics but there was one particularly harrowing piece of number-crunching found in our most reputable newspaper some years back. It stated that the biggest killer is not stroke, cancer, or heart attack, nor is it smoking, road-fatalities or chocolate, it is caused by a medical modality called 'iatrogenic' disease or 'death by doctoring' in plain English. Neglect, sanitation, infection, inexperience and mainly drug miss and over-use are just some of the stated annual 50 000 mortalities along with 250 000 resulting ailments suffered by the lucky survivors. This is only in Oz and may well be understated regarding the proportionate oops-list of unaccounted sudden ‘natural’ death causes especially amongst infants and the elderly.
However, the (for me) even more disheartening revelation was the eerie silence and total lack of public outrage upon its publication. It was only a statistical blip on the radar of media miscellany without further inquiry, follow-up or public attention. The only reaction I got from mentioning it was a vague “is that so?” -- Could be worst considering the opportunities they have, right? Again the real blame lays in our own what’s the point complicity. For them it’s just a matter of getting away with it, which is easy enough by literally burying their mistakes or incinerating the ‘corpus delicti’. One death is a tragedy, a thousand deaths are statistics. Are you an individual or a statistic? -- Don't know about you, but I don't fancy the odds of being one. Ever wondered why they call their vocation practicing?
Assuming that these figures apply to all developed countries this would quantify to millions worldwide. 750 000 annual fatalities in America killed by our very scientific orthodox healing profession. The lateral integration of the whole life-industries from our neighborhood GP right up the various branches of Medicare administration and ministry is so inscrutably tangled that it would render the herculean task of investigation into a nightmare of never ending buck-passing without ever exposing any offenders which we know anyway.
Unless, it involves the crime of healing in an unapproved manner by un-credentialed unorthodox practices like naturopathy, homeopathy or ozone therapy, where only a few fatalities would suffice an immediate royal- commission, the method outlawed and the practitioner crucified. I doubt that anyone would disagree that there is a cure for all except ignorance and stupidity. -- Orthodox, spiritual, alternative even tentative, who cares as long as it helps and most importantly, if it doesn’t we have at least done 'everything' there was and this decision should still be our own.
It is fair to conclude that medical reality is unlimited once we get behind the morality-free zone of monopolistic self-interest. We always hear about miracle cures and developments but unless they can be patented, they'd just crash into the solid legal wall of fraternal dissent and never see the light of day. -- And if it conflicts, there is always some liberally rewarded scholastic boffin, denigrating and maligning alternatives.
Take Filipino psychic surgery or shamanism as an example. Sure there are many frauds cashing in on it but what about the thousands of patients from all over the world visibly and dramatically cured, but not real by the bias scrutiny standards of medical science.
"Miracles happen not in opposition to nature, but in opposition to what we know of nature." (St. Augustine).
If I cannot comprehend does not mean it can’t exist and the only ‘real’ surgery is the one that provides real cure even if it constitutes for placebo which in itself raises questions conventional science has no answers for.
It still beats the scalpel for it means nothing short of benign un-intrusive self-healing in other words healing the cause. The number of people cured of Cancer, AIDS and other so called incurable diseases increases daily, yet the only reaction by the medical and media mafia is to ignore, attack or deny since the only thing these fat cats care about is the almighty dollar. Chiefly within the lucrative minor ailment market where astonishing cures are nothing but drugged out symptoms of maladies from which we would recover anyway. Therefore the SQ will irretrievably remain committed to applied chemistry versus applied biology for the simple reason that cure is so much more profitable then prevention. This is why we have all these marvelous antibiotics and so few methods for enhancing resistance.
So, what is medical science actually accomplishing? Well, no need for an autopsy on this one, the results speak for themselves don't they? it is accomplishing disease. -- The idea of junk-medicine is to compromise immunity, temporarily mask the symptoms and drive the disease even deeper into the body. Only to have it reappear at a later stage as an entirely different more serious and manageable speak chronic ailment, treated by yet another ‘expert’. -- Diagnosis is more about finding new markets than cure which would be anathema to an industry that relies on the macabre oxymoron of sick people constituting a healthy consumer base. -- How sick is that?
Modern hospitals are but allopathic butcher-shops, cloaked in medical techno-babble behind a facade of lies and deception. -- Our doctors die of the same diseases as do their patients. Using a ‘cookbook’ approach, everyone receives the same treatment regardless of what is causing the symptom. They know nothing about the laws of Nature and thus cannot ‘heal’ any disease. -- Western medicine is simply a con-game of wealth transference and it exists for no other reason. Truth is, you wouldn’t need all that expensive sick-care if you’d look after your health in the first place and neither would you be at the mercy of lies if you'd have adopted that truth to begin with. Back in the old days, MD’s weren't saddled with loads of uni. debt and the drug makers didn't have them in their pockets. In other words, they thought for themselves and put the needs of their patients first.
Not anymore! Since Medicare has brought expensive diseases within the reach of everyone, a cured patient becomes a wasted revenue source whereas a pathologised patient who is marginally improved is a compliant patient. The itch is now an allergy the illness expands to meet the budged and the patient becomes a diseased, dysfunctional, disordered or disabled cash-cow. He keeps coming back for more treatment and more drugs and now multiply that by the millions. - Not rocket science, just due diligence.
Real cure without ongoing drug dependency would not only be disastrous for Club-Med. It would imply commercial suicide for their related revenue cultures like the monumental gravy-train of cancer or AIDS research with all their nonexistent just around the corner remedies when the answers have been staring them in the face for generations.
At 400 billion a year the cancer business is four times the volume of the automobile industry and with chemo-euthanasia at $ 20 to 100 000 a pop there are lots more people making a good living from cancer than there are dying from it. Two thirds of private oncologists income derives from flogging chemo whilst most patients die from the cure that kills more than the disease. Truth is, the cancer business is having a field day feeding on your fears or as Sherlock Holmes put it:"once the impossible is eliminated the remainder, no matter how improbable, is the necessary solution." And with "cures" like that, who needs cancer anyway?
And the victims all have the same in common, they believe anything they hear from some contemptible double-crossing wretch in a white lab coat. This is the age of over-medication driven by a massive plagues for profit money machine, fueled by trusting desperate unfortunates see-sawing between hope and despair. I would have no hesitation with the verdict of manslaughter which equally represents the ensuing progress extending its powerful tentacles right into the healthy core of our contrived 'day by day' existence.
Can it get any worse than that? yes it can!! Let’s look at Bio-warfare or weaponised pathologies. -- To anyone who refuses to believe that Gov. scientists would be capable of initiating such horrendous deeds, I suggest they Google 'the human radiation experiments' and you will find not just dozens, but thousands of incidents of the government doing evil shit and testing it on their own citizens.
Welcome to your new life as a lab rat. They mess with our food water and medical services to ensure a shorter lifespan, and a lesser quality of life. Healthy equals happy and happy people don't blindly obey. They have the power of reason so they must be crushed. You can’t make this stuff up. It has been proven beyond doubt and even their own people have declared it time and again. Not a maybe yes or no thing. –This is real.
It confirms by administering radio-active substances and viral inoculates to populations of unsuspecting citizens and hospitalised patients, that our trusted doctors can be as diabolic as the worst hardened murderers. All this criminal activity is not only a horrendous crime against humanity, but a disrespect of the sanctity of life which can only be explained by wicked mental deficiencies of the perpetrators. -- Human sacrifice is part of their creed and the medical-industrial complex is their sick religion.
It seems safe to say that bugs can mutate and spread faster than medical science can react to. It is just a matter of design until one of them runs amok. Then what? I'm not denying that AIDS could have been introduced by a monkey but escaping from Fort Detrick would be a tall order even for a Chimp. - AIDS 'science' only makes sense when we begin to realise that it was meant to happen and that it’s just one of so many other 'emerging diseases' and 'emerging viruses' designed for global management of their ‘lesser brethren’.
Over the past 40 years, 39 infectious diseases have been discovered, and in the last five years more than 1100 epidemics have been verified. There are up to 20 new strains of "superbugs", such as MRSA, that are difficult to counter while three-quarters of emerging pathogens have the ability to jump species.
By all means, draw your own conclusion, but keep in mind that there is ample proof that the (aptly named) Swine-flu was bio-engineered by the globalist super-swine. There are always two reasons for everything, one is the good reason and second is the REAL reason. -- Selling billions of Tami-flu was the good reason, mandatory vaccination was the real one and mass-euthanasia is the AGENDA. -- The notion that these population cullers are still on track with injecting all of humanity, turns ‘conspiracy- theory’ instantly into conspiracy ‘reality’.
President Obama’s top science and technology advisor John P. Holdren co-authored a book in which he advocated the formation of a “planetary regime” that would use a “global police force” to enforce totalitarian measures of population control, including mass sterilization programs, conducted via the food and water supply, as well as mandatory forced abortions.
A fake virus treated with a vaccine that's no such thing? -- I strongly suspect that H1N1 might only be the carrier, but I’m too apprehensive to contemplate the cargo. All I can say is that if we meekly acquiesce to this most blatant attempt to gain access en masse to our bodies then frankly, we’ve got it coming. -- The worst pandemic is IGNORANCE and the only vaccine is KNOWLEDGE.
Throughout history virtually all the great crimes against humanity have been carried out by governments, mostly in the name of peace prosperity and security by the way. So let’s be clear about one thing: Governments are certainly capable of doing this if properly motivated. Of course, most people will refuse to even consider these ideas which is precisely why genocidal programs are so effective. It is also big business and a lot of people die, -- but how many do really care about it? Then again, a lot of people are making money from the Iraq war and millions have been killed and maimed, -- who cares about that? Are you speechless or trembling with rage? You’d be fully justified in screaming your brains out in horror and outrage, but no one would care about that either. –- Nuff said.
“If I were reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to Earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels." ~ Prince Phillip, World Wildlife Fund. –- From the horse’s mouth, aye.
With the forthcoming of nutraceuticals......
and functional eating, accompanied by the sovereignty-shift from market democracy to corporate feudalism, the conclusion becomes inescapable: food and chemistry are inseparable. An outgrowth of genetic engineering has now been branded as pharming where they are inserting genes that instruct plants to manufacture pharmanutricals which (once the drug-thugs have their way) will be ultimately transfused in nutrition-less non-food that makes you fat, clogs your heart, dims your mind and puts you in an early grave. You can’t get any more absurd than that, can you? They believe in things that aren’t true and look at things that aren’t real. They feed on shit in golden wrappers like licking honey off barbwire in a grotesque adaptation of Alice in wonderland. -- Let's ad some irony here and say "go figure". But honestly! is it any wonder that mass psychosis is upon us?
In short: compulsory interactive medication of the whole population or state assisted suicide. Drug corporations are merging with food and bio-tech and what it comes down to is full-spectrum conscription of public healthcare. I.e. the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe are all poisoned to the point where it causes huge social and medical problems. Fluoride, chem-trails, Nano-biology, molecular biosynthesis, mandated vaccination and every benign alternative either patented, regulated out of existence, or plain verboten.
This is not going to happen, it is a reality where fully synthetic colored and flavored foodstuffs in all shapes and crunch-consistencies are just a few more (giga) bites away. What we get is an ever more artificial version of something that is nutritionally bereft and no longer remembers what it was naturally based on. -- Culture served on a Petri-dish will make life so much more orderly with everything from birth to mood-control, calibrated emulsified and irresistibly merchandised. Domestic tranquility, no more obesity, aggression and the hideous inconvenience of cooking. Ergo no more global warming, presumably, since livestock flatulence accounts for more green house gas releases than all forms of transport or industry put together. The whole world fed and decongested by remote control without a shot being fired.
Extra chemicals or compounds are not added without a cause. The effects are intentional and not miscalculations, accidents, or incompetence within these labs. All the additives, chemicals, preservatives, dyes, fluoride, MSG or aspartame etc are not just there for flavor, preservation, or profit. Addiction and debilitation are contrived results for very good reasons: 1) addicted people are huge sources of profit for they continue to consume regardless of the harm they cause. -- 2) addicted or sick people die early and don't collect on their "benefits". - 3) addicted or sick people are easily scared, manipulated, and directed by those who want to profit from them. Well, they are not going to be in much shape to resist, are they?
"If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny". (Thomas Jefferson)
In a world awash with toxins and their influence on disease causation the blame had to be shifted to what's conveniently referred as viruses. Virus is the Latin term for 'haven’t got a clue' and most importantly: a virus can not be sued. Shielded by the FDA, vaccine (and drug) manufacturers are immune from prosecution for wrong doing and continue to do wrong with horrifying impunity.
Theories of blood-pressure, cholesterol, germs etc. are liberally used to confuse results, explain failure, avoid culpability and even claim cure... And then like its proverbial retro-virus establishment, the whole culture divides and mutates into bacteria (they call it merger). Many of the one's who dump carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic chemicals into our food, water and air, have pharmaceutical divisions that produce the pills to mask the subsequent poisoning, sorry..... viruses.
Industrial medicine or should we say industrialised suffering is in bed with the enemy. Solely driven by greed for profit and therefore will never free us from disease. And at every step of the way the red-tape manufacturers make the laws and loopholes to help them get away with it.
Are we a ‘dead' culture? Or a machine society? Certainly only pathological thinking can arrive at such conclusions, but Monsanto took the synergistic chemical-drug business even one step further. -- After polluting much of the worlds water with toxic chemicals they are now getting into the multi billion save drinking water business via their subsidiary Pfizer. Same with food. We consume the junk that Big Food packages on the cheap and big Pharma waits at the other end of the corridor with their mitt wide open for the negative health effects to catch up with us.
Just apply `Cui Bono` or who benefits. -- Nearly all wars are created by economy and maintained by it and the war on health is no different. -- Just like the corporate death merchants who foment war supply both sides and then snare the lucrative rebuilding jobs. The marketplace of Pharmacy is the human body. Its profit depends on the continuation and expansion of disease and if the reason for treatment is to create wealth then it’ll also support its own environment to sustain it into a prosperous disease-ridden future. -- Just follow the money and when you find the money you always find the motivation and the agenda. The guiding motto for any industry is 'profit' while for the consumer it is 'convenience' and the price for all to pay is the loss of health.
Ultimately we get what we chose: natural health or drug management. But who knows for how much longer we have that choice before MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) reaches its dreaded potency of becoming the architect of our demise as a species. It is now liable for more deaths throughout the U.S. than AIDS and I am willing to bet that most of you haven't even heard of it. Time to connect some dots here. Bacteria and pathogens are beginning to re-assert their old menace from the days before antibiotics which means that we are commencing an era without antibiotics. In a world with seven billion people, future pandemics without effective antibiotics could virtually wipe out civilization as we know it. -- And that's only calling a spade a spade. -- "Unless we change direction we probably end up where we are going." (Chinese proverb)
Big Pharma joins forces with Big Brother....
and what we are facing is the institutional consolidation of bad food, bad medicine, bad science, bad business and bad government. -- Soon, every single thing you put into your mouth, including water with the exception of pharmaceuticals of course will be fully ruled by the CODEX (Latin for food code) commission. The global enforcement through the WTO (World Trade Org.) with 149 member countries sets the standards of Vitamin and mineral supplements health claims, vaxination, labelling, modified foods and pesticide residues in addition to dealing with ordinary foods and water. CODEX and WTO "good farming practices" will include the demise of organic farming by banning manure, mandating GMO animal feed, imposing animal drugs and mandating the use of petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides.
This is health fascism of the utmost horror and would (will) further imply that curative, preventive, organic and therapeutic health products become the exclusive domain of the NGO pharmaceutic industries.
Modern medicine is the leading cause of death in our country today weres Herbs and vitamins have never killed anyone. - With natural choices made illegal, the only options would (will) be drugs and surgery, period. You will not be able to get the stuff that really works and the few things that are allowed will be ten times as dear and next to useless. -- Nutrients allowed under codex are limited to those on the ‚positive list‘, expected to contain only 18 nutrients. One of them being fluoride, which as we know has no biological benefit whatsoever. -- But it does make people complacent.
In short by 2009 CODEX is going to regulate the global food supply from farm to fork. Control and profit are their prime objectives and freedom of choice, future health and the whole environment are at grave risk. Unless we can fight this neutricide, which remains hypothetical, we may have to start thinking about growing our own food in the future to prevent calculated extermination. Please look it up at the Dr. Rath Foundation website, I can not find the words to express the full extent of what we are doomed to encounter and how this can occur in a supposedly informed society.
The solution? If we allow this takeover to happen, and it is happening right before our eyes, then we better be prepared to maintain our own private food supplies, -- or succumb to whatever we are slated for.
......'To maintain a picture of health, use your frame of mind'......
Although humanity may have medicated itself into a substantial chance of extinction, we still have our natural impulses to heal. -- It is part of being human. A nourished immune-system will overcome almost all ills unaided without the knife, poisonous drugs toxins or vaccines. And the minor ones are self-limiting anyway. -- Cancer is simply a state of a severely polluted body. It is not a disease, it’s a natural part of the biological life-cycle. The only cure is to change the acidity of the internal soil which can be attained with nutrition and ‘modified personal environment’.
Claude Bernard (1813-1878) said it best: "The microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything." Remove acidosis, drugging, FEAR, poor sanitation, wrong lifestyle choices, and vile eating, and there is little left. What is left can be easily thrown out of the body ‘by Nature’. -- We do not need new medicine, we need new ways 'about' medicine.
Florence Nightingales maxim was always “first do no harm”. Everything is the same energy in different states of being. Spirit, Atoms, Molecules, Chemicals, Cells, Organs, Components and finally Body. -- Imbalances in our external self will eventually weaken a certain energy-field and filter down to manifest as physical dis-ease. (stress) In other words if you are depressed by having to live in a shit-box you don’t need Prozac, you need a decent house, but the moment you tell some shyster shrink you are a little sad, you instantly become a dollar sign.
We will remove these imbalances and thereby treat the real cause before discomfort is felt or like the old Chinese modality where a doctor only gets paid as long as the patient is healthy. It is all about keeping our energy-systems in balance and they (the Chinese/Indians) have worked that out eons before us. (Ayurvedic medicine)
When you say "man, this stress is killing me," you couldn’t be more right. Only very few individuals die of old age or natural death, hence most of us will most likely die from something that could have been prevented.
Arthritis, Asthma, Cancer, Diabetes, and many other stress, life-style or environment related diseases cannot be reversed but they can be averted because they are psychosomatic. Although modern medicine is slowly and grudgingly consenting that emotions and stress can determine the body’s functions it is nonetheless light-years from accepting let alone considering the nonlocal mind.
The local (brain) mind is an integral part of the anatomy which regulates respiration, circulation and digestion with its own fully coherent capacity to deal with breakdowns, immune-balance and holistic equilibrium.
The nonlocal mind is consciousness and not confined to ones individual body. Consciousness is infinite, unlimited, immortal and boundless. -- In other words 'transpersonal'. If our minds are unbounded then we must be connected which can only imply that we are literally one. -- "Do good unto others because they are you." - this is why “do unto others as one would be done by” is so true.
If our minds are connected then we can also share any or all experiences including health and illness in a holistic manner through concrete actions of the individual and the collective. Once perceived as a felt linkage or living reality we are never again alone or isolated which are major factors of most ailments anyway. -- Buddhist monks were not born with a happy- gene, they attain profound happiness by united mindfulness/meditation which were developed 3000 years before Prozac.
"Community is Love and gratitude." This means a balanced and integral development of all human life facets. Physical, emotional and spiritual health thereby needs to be expressed not just in the lives of individuals, but in the life of the ‘whole community’. – Someone in pain evokes in us the impulse to help. This is a natural impulse like speaking and laughing together. -- We do really care about each other and ourselves but lack direction and perspective on the two worlds we leave in. Our external world of objects and matter and our psychological inner world of meaning sensation and perception. Both are shared biospheres and therefore need equal consideration.
We always treat the disease or symptom and never the ‘ill person’ whilst it is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than it is to know about the disease itself. People do not have an illness they are ill and shifting the symptom is really just deactivating the warning light by removing the bulb. -- Disease is an indicator of adjustment and change to which we are compelled to pay attention whereas industrial med. induces the fear of death for its wretched greed and doesn’t give a damn about you except that you pay up and shut up.
Greed selfishness and violence are diseases of mind and spirit which harm us individually environmentally and collectively. Greedy folks are sick and damaged in their capacity to fully experience the satisfying realms of our human behavior. Their effect on society is like cancer and their obsession for symbols betray their capacity to feel. -- We therefore need a medical framework that sees greed and hunger for power as a disease of meaning and where better to start then by exposing the pious medical industry and replace it with an alternative portfolio of healing systems which are cheap safe, non judgmental and simple to use. Dedication versus medication or lifespan vers. health span there’s nothing stopping us but our own inertia.
I am not blankly condemning surgery, drugs or high-tech medicine, after all one doesn't call his herbalist if he gets hit by a bus, but we have to also spiritualise, humanise and infuse it with a caring quality which is all but nonexistent in the slice and dice world of allopathic medicine. They are not mutually exclusive and should coexist and overlap. Like drugs are now used with psychotherapy so can surgery co-operate with shamanism, meditation or hypnotism. The mechanistic approach of a patient as a disease entry instead of a whole individual with inner needs, shows its failure in the fact that the spiraling cost of health-care is only matched by an equal increasing of diseases and the sliding ratio of dying to curing.
We have valid evidence for a world beyond the ordinary. Gods (doctors) have spiritual needs too and even science is although not including but at least conceding undeniable evidence of the metaphysical. It has finally validated that nature is interconnected and interdependent, without division between science and spirituality. "The physician is only the servant of nature, not her master " (Paracelsus)
70 % of per capita health care is spent in the last six months of one’s life to extend a mostly undignified existence by an average of sixteen days.
This should compel us to take a closer look at mortality before relegating and delegating the life of our loved ones (and ours) to be pained to death by a system of acquisitive institutions without the slightest regard for psychological or spiritual reality.
Death by life-support may take a little longer but apart from robbing the dying process of its dignity and a literally heart-stopping price tag, it will be no less permanent. -- What’s the point in saving the life of a slave to prolong his suffering? Don't know what God is but I do know what's not. Dying people have feelings too which is why facilitating death with dignity should be equally important than saving life's. We sometime overlook that healing into death is also healing. This point of transition may be the most important time in our life.
There is supposedly no pain that can’t be relieved by modern pharmaceuticals as long as one endures vegetating in technological twilight, instead of accepting or with spiritual enlightenment even looking forward to whatever new discovery there may unfold.
..... We are multidimensional entities serving time in a three dimensional prison and brainwashed into believing it is a life sentence without parole nor escape. -- The intellectual separation of matter and spirit is the most arrogant dogma of modern medicine and our alternative framework must therefore see health as an etheric condition of polarity. Consciousness is infinite and carries the incomprehensible promise of immortality which is also the cure for our most dire disease, the fear of death.
"What happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that imagination and feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it". (Carl G. Young)
THE MAIN REQUIREMENTS OF A HEALING CULTURE ARE:
· Release of stress.
· Mastery of life.
· Support of the community.
· To protect from excessive medical intervention.
Let me quote Patrick C. Petroni from his book (New Map Old Territory)
1. The human organism is a multi-dimensional being, possessing body, mind and spirit, all inextricably connected, each part affecting the whole and the whole being greater that the sum of the parts.
2. There is an interconnectedness between human beings and environment which includes other human beings. This interconnectedness acts as a force on the functioning of the individual isolated human being.
3. Disease or ill-health are a result of imbalance, either within the human being or because of some external force in the environment, and environment includes the family.
4. We each possess a powerful and innate capacity for healing ourselves, or bringing ourselves back into a state of balance.
5. One of the primary tasks of someone entrusted to heal is to encourage the self-innate capacity for healing of the individual in distress.
6. This primary task can often be better accomplished through education than direct intervention, whether that be penicillin, surgery or homeopathic.
7. To enable him to accomplish his task effectively, the healer needs to be aware of his own level of existence and have some expertise and ability in achieving a state of balance and harmony within him or herself. The proponents of holistic medicine will do well to learn not just the technique of acupuncture but attempt to have a closer study of the means developed to deal with illness by considering man in the context of his relationship with the cosmos about him. Acupuncture, as an example, makes no sense without the Chinese world –view.
Negative attributes: Anger, depression, guilt, worry and attachment.
Main challenges: Illness, change, accident, old age, grief and death.
And we have our own Mother Nature’s unlimited store-house of biomagic. If urine therapy helped Gandhi and he applied it then who are we to judge. If maggots can dispose decaying tissue which prevented countless limbs from amputation then why not. It is only unorthodox in orthodox terms within text books written by corporate plague-makers and scalpel wielding mechanics.
It is symptomatic that corporations are pressured to maintain a relentless pace of innovation which simply cannot comply with a human species whose physical makeup evolves slowly over many generations. 200 years of modern medicine represents only a minute fraction of accumulated medical knowledge which is still pursued by a fast alternative majority. Healing has been practiced throughout history and we cannot afford to eliminate ninety five percent of the worlds medical store for the arrogant claim of it being unscientific.
I don’t accept conventional wisdom. I don’t accept the advice of experts who know bugger-all what they are talking about, or medical authorities who injure those they are entrusted to heal. – There isn't a single person alive on this planet today, that does not owe their existence to the healing ability of someone that utilised a ‘non-scientific’ method to heal a relative somewhere in the distant past. Eon's of imperial knowledge compared to two centuries of industry financed research and guinea-pigs? Makes you wonder what really is alternative.
Universal treatments and remedies not proven by drug company financed double blind studies, but by millions of people who have used them over ages, are not offered by orthodox medicine, and until that happens the doctors treatment may not be in your best interest. -- In fact it might be the worst. -- In the words of Thomas Edison: "The Doctor of the Future will give no medicine, but will involve the patient in the proper use of food fresh air, and exercise."
There is a fast network of elite herbalists, holistic healers, and renegade MD’s throughout the world fulfilling miracles on a daily basis. Thousands have come to these "miracle doctors" as terminally ill and thousands have left cured. -- There is however the problem of making a calculated choice amongst the fast array of conflicting confusing and often bizarre advise offered to the uninitiated novice, on genuine but nonconventional cures. With millions of links appearing on “alternative cancer treatment” the molehill suddenly becomes a mountain and it would be safe to estimate copious chaff amongst the wheat. -- But even amongst all the wheat of expertly documented credible information we’d still have to grapple with making the right decision. It also takes time which we don’t have, so it’s usually back to the qualified oncologist for more advise and subsequently chemo by default as the safest bet. -- Alas we are still very much on our own and our well being remains with the highest bidder.
We need education not medication. It is out there, it is genuine, effective available and accessible but we still need honest un-bought MD’s to point us in the right direction. And we’ll find them. Fortunately unlike allopathy, homeopathy is the opposite. It means selfhealing and not only is it simple and free of cost, it is also benign and noninvasive meaning albeit a wrong diagnosis or remedy may not heal the initial cause, it does no harm and by stopping doing harm we take the first step to doing good.
There is enough conclusive evidence of what's commonly denigrated as miracle cures seeping through the walls of fraternal sand-bagging to show the real potential of holistic reality. -- We cannot break down those walls, but they are beginning to leak in a thousand places and the slowly rising tide of consciousness will one day come bursting through and expose its structural deception.
We will support this tide but we are not going to wait for it. There are many caring intelligent minds behind those walls. Frustrated, discredited and conspired against inventors, scientists, researchers and maverick genius. Too committed and dedicated to just give up, and too constricted to persevere. -- Data might be confiscated, labs destroyed, reputations slandered, etc.. In other words they are gagged and suspended but their spirit is unbroken.
They mustn’t be exiled by corrupt self-serving antagonism because every one of them is worth more than all the smug reactionaries put together. They are proud decent human beings with the only social flaw of standing up for what they have achieved and for what they know.
What better people is there. We can be their Ark and we can provide a receptive environment. There won't be a problem with the big hogs, they can’t lock them all up and we are only quarantining the enemy. One day their break-through innovations will benefit the whole of human kind and we can be proud of having been part of it. They can save life’s, our life’s and they can continue their research as well as pursuing unopposed with whatever it was they were too good at.
Truth is a living experience and has nothing to do with laws or creeds. It will not be bolted down, arrested, silenced or killed. -- It will LIVE. We are science immaculate, based on true findings, innovations and development without political interference or financial restriction.
“The roots of knowledge are bitter, but its fruit are sweet.” Cicero,
The (real) X files
Exactly how many rooms full of data.....
samples prototypes and plans of all sorts of restrained inventions there are is anyone’s guess but fact is they exist. Handed over to authorities and research departments, universities or science in general under naive assumptions of support and help to benefit human kind. Sold, confiscated or locked away never to be seen again and denied to later inquiries.
There is conclusive evidence of UFOs but are they always ET? Big brother science is unconditionally covert and light years ahead of contemporary gadget development (in comparison). Quantum mech. and astrophysics are the cutting edge technology of the elite and all else is scraps from the table. It is already operating in the fourth dimension and impenetrable as well as incomprehensible to us mortals.
Suppose it would come as a big surprise even to the authorities let alone the masses, seeing select earthlings looking down from advanced crafts waiting for the smell to clear if /when things go apeshit down below. Or the ultimate conclusion to hoaxed terrorism a fake 'War of the Worlds' to further warrant …..?
Our perceived enemies will change over time. First it will be the Russians. When that doesn’t work, it will be terrorists. When that is played out, the threat will be killer asteroids. When that no longer works, they will say our enemies will be aliens from space. It is all a lie.” Wernher Von Braun, father of the American Space program as related to Dr. C. Rosen when he was dying of cancer in the early 70’s
For better, for worst of for whom? My guess is as good as yours, but fact is there is a hidden agendashadow-governmental-transnational-entity, and anyone who hasn’t figured that out by now must be a very happy person. -- A reality behind a scam of destruction so that some higher ups with their own agendas can keep us in the dark because ultimately they are in the dark too. as certain as there is a
Most of the wars and revolutions over the last three hundred years have been contrived by these powers, meeting and scheming in various secret societies or whatever you chose to call them. -- These Organizations will make themselves known after they have become so powerful that nothing can stop them, which is pretty much what's starting to happen now.
I am not implying that every constituent of secrete Cabal is knowingly working against the good of humanity because most of them wouldn’t know how odious their society is deployed by their elusive overlords. Apparently there are 112 paths leading to the same place, and they are traveling on multiple paths simultaneously. Issues that seem unrelated are connected and most of the manipulators are in fact being manipulated themselves and don’t realise there is another force that is directing them to their destined end. IOW. The game is fixed in ways unknown even to those who know that the game is fixed.
“We form an association of brothers in all points of the globe…Yet there is one unseen that can hardly be felt, yet it weighs on us. Whence comes it? Where is it? No one knows…or at least no one tells. This association is secret even to us the veterans of the Secret Societies” Guiseppe Mazzini (Head of the Bavarian Illuminati 1800s. Successor to Weishaupt
I personally assume that all those minions of the great big world-eating machine, the corporate CEO's, cops, prison guards, Monsanto scientists and assorted villains of history all serve. The same master. -- But however sinister, devious or patrician this agenda may be, we will live (or die) to find out. It may even be noble in terms of population control to scale humanity to a manageable level and thereby save the world which would inadvertently self-destruct if left to our contentious stupor. I am not on their side but this should reveal the extent of my open mindedness.
And to the discomfort of the skeptics it may be worth emphasising that conspiracy stuff' is now shorthand for unspeakable truth and the ones we know of are only those that have been exposed.
“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” Carl Jung
"Free energy will promulgate a leap in human progress akin to the discovery of fire. It will bring the dawn of an entirely new civilization based on freedom and abundance." Sterling D. Allan.
There is a lot more to people than just people, especially with the dot com liberation of millions contributing ideas and creative energies towards a unified agenda of intellectual freedom. -- Transformation can only be sparked by creative minorities and what is starting to happen is genuine understanding between like-mindedness.
Inventors and scientists, disillusioned by the arrogance of oppression and the implied consent of a non-demanding public, are now publishing their work for free instead of patenting it. This in itself may typify free energy for what it really is. An outer manifestation of divine abundance touching the mundane and the humane. Enabled by the tribal linkage of individuals via the intense global co-ordination of networks. -- The beauty of the Internet as a means of seeking truth is that it defeats the narrow focus. Time will tell how many awaken, but the more there are, the more there can be. -- In fact it has become the vehicle for the evolution of the whole of future humanity.
It will take a while before one can purchase a (hypothetical) 20 Kw Orgon generator at K-Mart to put in your cupboard and never receive another power bill, -- although it exists. Neither would I vouch for integrity if free energy were dispersed to the present non-spiritual human animal, since our escalating technocalypse evidently doesn't spawn equivalent boosts of substantia grisea. (gray matter)
“Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun." ~ Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University
It takes ten times as much energy to produce our stuff of life then what it actually yields up. As an example, a Hyena (as probably our closest kin), burns equally as much energy by hunting its prey as it derives from it. If it exhausts more than it consumes it will perish, simple as that. -- What makes the difference, is oil.
What we're doing by burning oil is rapidly releasing the energy packed into those molecules over millions of years. We're not getting free energy, we're just rapidly releasing energy collected over a huge span of time in a brief burst. And if we actually find free energy, then all we'd use it for would be more production, more transport more pollution and even more problems. Next comes water, air, soil and finally our whole atmosphere. We'd smoke out, we'd choke out, we'd heat out and we'd burn out in an ever spiraling miasma of virulent confluence.
“Information is data with an intended outcome. Knowledge is information woven into relationships and experience. And wisdom is knowledge in the context of an ecosystem, a part of the web of life. In our obsession with technology, we might be sacrificing wisdom for knowledge, knowledge for information, information for data and data for meaninglessness.” (Deepark Chopra)
The American way of life may be non negotiable according to G.P. Bush but mother nature does not negotiate, -- she retaliates. Call it karma or God or whatever you like but I think some rules have been broken here and there are most likely systems in place to correct such transgressions. Technology and making more stuff isn't going to get us out of this. The 'out' is coming to us, for we do not have the four additional biospheres needed to facilitate our global affluence. –- One American to each car, compared to 117 to one Chinese? – catching up fast.
“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can't let other countries have the same number of cars, nor the amount of industrialization we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.” M Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund
It is not necessarily progress when a cannibal starts using knife and fork and equally naive to assume greed and avarice obsolete before conscious self determination is re manifested. It is consistent with human behavior to always wanting things for free but only few of us can handle it without laws. If anything, free energy will help to speed up our already spiraling scientific nose-dive, which incidentally would not be such a bad thing.
It has to happen anyway but the sooner we get it over and done with, the more will be left for our grand-children. We’re treating our fragile earth as if we were the last generation on it and perhaps we are, but regardless of imminent distress and chaos, we have still a golden future ahead of us. Let’s just hope we make it through the storm (whenever it comes) and if we don't, then maybe we will meet on the other side. -- In a better place.
"Nikola Tesla was not in this for the money. He wanted to give the world free energy. If we are to implement free energy in the tradition of Nikola Tesla, then we need to replicate not only his science but his humanity." (Sterling D. Allan)
The final looting and gutting of civilization is well underway. Over-adapted and over-industrialised civilization is the bubble that must burst before we can reclaim connection with nature and spirituality while we still have the choice to make a choice. -- We can do it incrementally as long as we are concise and assertive, or we can do it excrementally by doing nothing and leave it up to Science and Mother Nature. -- Procrastination might be the thief of time but Diarrhea waits for no man, and you wouldn’t want to be around for the smell.
Trust me, we haven't seen bad yet, but it's coming. -- When folks of the developed world can no longer run their cars on a whim they will go bat-shit-crazy and you can kiss democracy goodbye. -- Along with Law and Order. They’ll be dunging their drawers when the lights go out and their cushy neighborhoods turn into jungles.
There is a change coming, and for whatever reason, some of us can see and feel it happening. There are people and places that will weather these times and there are others that will not, but out of the ashes of what used to be, a new dawn will arise. I cannot stress enough to look within your heart and determine what is best for you and your folks. It's called linking the dots. Let’s just say, regardless of what fate deals us, 'we' choose how we play it, so we better change soon or we will be changed later.
...... As Nicole Kidman said it so well in ‘AUSTRALIA’: “just because it is, doesn't mean it should be.”
(Intellectual capacity is no guarantee against being dead wrong)
Today’s dreams will become the reality of tomorrow, the when will be up to us, so what are we waiting for? There is a huge wave of awakening washing over the planet. I can feel it happening, and I can see the results around me every day. A positive response leads to curiosity which in turn creates knowledge, and knowledge is the soul of understanding. -- And subsequently hope. But what is the use of hope if it's based on a lie? In fact, what use is hope at all? -- The future is ours and the future starts the day we abandon hope and make a decision to look for the truth.
Science is Latin and means knowledge, but it is not about the pursuit of knowledge. It is solely about defending a hermetic maxim based on the fallacy that science should be pursued by cumulation of experimentally observed facts from which scientific truth is supposedly distilled. Ergo, science is a dogma resting on the rock solid base of statistics exclusively concerned with numbers measurements and quantities.
“What I don’t understand has no right to exist”. If history means anything and I suggest that it should, let's keep in mind that the Wright-Brothers were flying their plane in front of witnesses while skeptics were all the same denying that flight was even possible. We still don’t know what gave science its divine mandate for guarding orthodox tenets, nor for censoring inquisitive pursuits of the individual.
We must however recall that scientists are human too and part of being human is not knowing where to stop. – Alas, they will continue to practice dastardly deeds for what is praised as the highest pursuit.
"Only one percent of identifiable reality is perceived by the five senses, and only five percent by the conscious mind).
Speaking of which:
Q: why can a Bumblebee fly which is against all orthodox laws of physics.
A: It flies because no smart-ass expert ever told it that it can’t.
As we are barreling through history with oceans of information and but a drop of understanding, I can only suggest to take a look at the confusion we have generated by claiming to know without enlightenment, without thinking, without commitment, and without responsibility, imagination or perspective. Why can’t we just accept and embrace the result of creative intelligence, genius and talent without the counter-productive, hyper-realistic subjugation of free-thinking consensus. If ‘Science’ progresses as it has so far, it can only head towards the extinction of mankind. There is no other dimension open to it. -- And most of all, why can’t scientists be held responsible like the rest of us! -- Because they can institutionalize being wrong, that’s why!
'The first rule of tinkering is to keep all the parts'. – It’s time to give the so called tinkerers a go, because if our professionals are so clever why then is our world in such disarray. Let’s invite these gifted individuals who sacrificed their time money, reputation and families to experiment in their garages and basements in search for truths of which in their hearts they know to exist. “Intuition is the source of scientific knowledge” Aristotle
Most breakthroughs in science came from people who taught themselves outside the academic system. These individuals of synergistic minds, and hands-on mechanical skills to bring theory into useful reality, are the men we should lift up and support. They are lonely, abandoned and reaching out for intellectual acceptance while some just become what mainstream sees as anti-social introverts when in fact they are just too immersed in their authenticity, to care about superficial hobnobbing.
“And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are usually the ones who do."
And neither do they belong to the privileged crop of intellectual acidheads in their company labs, funded by ungodly amounts of research money to prove something we already know, or nobody cares about. In less than a week an average lab-rat can train one to bring food every time it presses a buzzer, because they are only people by degrees without the brains nor hands-on skills to stand alone. Never challenging new frontiers nor the technological Titanic of the old to make a better tomorrow whilst half their time is spent on writing fancy reports and grant applications.
Educated spread-sheet jockeys without the wisdom to figure out why the sandwich always lands on the buttered side, but house-trained to develop a paradigm shattering voice-actuated dunny-lid. It’s always just another variation of the same old same old and it is always 'new and improved'. Big #@* deal. -- "The 'expert' knows more and more about less and less until he knows everything about nothing" .
"After the third tribulation, (WW3) a new source of energy will be found that taps the earth's magnetic field." (Hopi Prophecy)
Now, perpetual motion, along with meta-physical conclusions, might be a bit untimely but free energy is omnipresent and on tap in static electricity, gravity, water, sound, wind, magnetism, ether, thermo-dynamics, air, sun and light, to name some. -- This of course is not something recognised by any kind of orthodoxy.
Authenticity and imagination are the source of all great discoveries but it takes a genius to make it work. N. Tesla's Magnifying Transmitter, Henry Morays Radiant Energy Devise, V. Schauberger's Implosion Vortex engine, Cold fusion technology or Super Efficient Electrolysis are just some proven free energy systems. They are free of charge in the sense as the water that flows through a turbine thus not free of source and definitely not free (unconstrained) for application. Except for some alibi stand-ins like solar-cells or wind-generators to give us something to mull over.
The potential of untapped energy sources is unlimited and they must be accepted as the common heritage of all people. Hence, if humanity is to come together towards mutual prosperity, universal access is essential.
Pollution free abundance without nuclear power-plants and without green-house emission. Desalination, low-cost production, transport, you name it. It would change the whole world in unparalleled richness and relieve all of humanity from its planned wretched state. 'Decentralization’ is the key to freedom'. -- It would enable cooperative, self-sustaining communities which could be the foundation for a new democracy where all are entitled to live healthier fuller life’s...
So, as long as we cannot buy it (free energy), we should create it which is what literally thousands of inquisitive minds are already engaged in. Imagination is more important than knowledge because it comes through thinking. -- It is also the key to awakening, and the net is brimming with experimenters and groups at various stages of development eager to exchange opinions, experience, results, failures, improvements, solutions and sources.
We can at long last stand up and refuse to remain ignorant. Free energy has been with us for decades, but only now has transmission technology torn the veil of secrecy from the vestige of monopolies and exposed them for how greedy self-centered, cruel, deceitful and evil they really are.
Yep! They have done themselves in; knowledge is king. It has gotten out of control by giving the masses easy access and it is spilling forth. People understand now why corporations cause famines, why corporations create diseases, why they start wars and how they exploit resources and nature. They are becoming manifestly aware of the tooth and claw consolidation of elite-power, the Bonzi-schemes of high-finance, etc. etc. They can see mass lay-offs to fund obscene handouts for their CEO’s and they become exceedingly contemptuous towards the pernicious corruption of politics and governance.
Tremendous turmoil will be unleashed to disrupt the combined consensus needed for creating the world we want, but this time nothing will be able to stop it. The last great war is upon us and we are going to build our 21st century Ark to survive and co-create real civilization based on free energy and spiritual renaissance where nobody can get rich on it nobody can take credit for it, and nobody can rule the world with it.
This is why we have to be selective because only decent people care, only decent people advance with integrity and only decent people are genuine.
But on the downside the terrifying veracity remains that our internet satellites are still held in sway by the military which is as we know the mainspring of scientific progress. -- And who controls the controllers?
Call me paranoid but I can't shake my concern that when that next false-flag hits, this last medium of open communication will be controlled to the point of being worthless. -- That is the stuff that keeps me awake at night, so let’s all do our best to make sure that the next nightmare they subject us to will be their swan song.
“The prophecies of our science fiction writers have proven more accurate then the expectations of our scientists and statesmen” ( Lord Bertram Russell)
Most inventors on their own do not have the resources to develop and produce, whilst established utility providers just keep buying up patents to be locked away. -- Governments should intervene in order to save resources and reduce environmental damage but in the meantime they have fraudulently hawked their constitutional obligation to do so. Well, we know what should be done and we certainly know all about governments..
Science is too important to be left to the scientists....
When we look at the brain-crunching effort of intellectual greatness that went into developing the technology to fuck things up one would be excused for thinking whether it may require more brains to leave things as they are. Maybe that’s what Whales do with their big brains, they don’t fuck things up. (Ben Elton)
Let's assume that we have achieve what I am proposing: A chosen society of free thinking, dedicated, creative and broad-minded people, striving outside of mediated structures and control. We have built a sound infra- structure, a healthy income producing economy, stress-free comfortable lifestyle, sincere administration and an unwavering alignment with our environment, sustainability and social integration. Hence, we are in a position to provide our own "Galt's Gulch," for exactly the likes of folks we wish to consort with.
An interacting interrelating and interconnecting fusion of every thinkable faculty, packing a combustible blend of brilliant minds, fermenting in a safe nurtured environment, and finally distilling into the true spirit of our mastermind. -- Astronomical would be an understatement in describing the creative energy such a diverse alliance of brain and mind-power can accomplish and like its liquid name-sake our spirit will be pure and stable, maturing with time, impenetrable, potent and heady.
In pursuing this analogy, it makes no difference to the spirit what kind or mix of fruit we choose, as long as we remove the stones or pips which contain harmful acids or in our case traditional mental baggage. They can be bruised but not rotten, this is why we select and it requires controlled fermentation with the appropriate yeast (attitude). This (fermentation) relates to our transition or establishment period and ends by discarding any residual stress, anxiety and social strain. -- Finally distillation or deliverance, from selected fruit-pulp to high-grade spirit. -- UTOPIA...
"Share your knowledge, it is a passage to achieve immortality" (Dalai Lama) "Each has a piece of the puzzle and together we can assemble the whole picture." (I)
We are not in it for the money. Our aim is not technology for its own self defeating sake. It is technology to serve a better environment, a better life and to liberate people for the pursuit of higher aspirations in human achievement. When Mark Twain declared “every inventor is a crackpot until his idea succeeds” he related to mainstream, which has not learned to just connect, but we have. -- We are cogs, not wheels. We connect without inhibiting intellectual prejudices and if it runs into a dead end it is still beneficial to our mental cohesion in spite of any commercial write-off.
As the great Tesla once said: “The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of a planter for the future. His duty is to lay foundations for those who are to come, and to point the way".
As this world enters a new phase....
we are now laden with the consequences of inquisitive science. We can't undo past mistakes nor challenge what is being perpetrated right now but either way, -- the warning is crystal clear and that prove is everywhere. 'None so blind as those who will not see', and all that...
We can only duck out and cocoon by creating our own cerebral sanctuary. Not by disconnecting, but by simply stepping back and re-focusing our lives on three imperatives :
Return to Independence. -- Return to Ethics. -- Return to Nature.
And there was never and neither will there ever be a better time to do so. Patching up the old is an exercise in futility under any circumstances. In fact science has become so suicidal that each step towards progress is an other step towards catastrophe. -- The world has turned into a runaway laboratory in which we are no longer masters of the tools we’ve invented and where the worst threat to humanity may well be scientific Erroroism. The means always determine the end and the real challenge we face lays in redefining progress. -- Man achieves genuine progress only when he approaches nature humbly and accepts her eternal laws which are space-less, timeless and unchanging. -- “Outside the MATRIX everything is possible and there are no limits”. MORPHEUS
Only spiritual revolution can bring about the wholeness essential to evolve on all levels. Real imagination creativity and genuine innovation is needed if we are to find a way out and if there is none we have to ‘invent’ one. Action removes the doubt that theory cannot resolve and there is no lack of good brains, but they have to be mobilised and motivated. Only when freed from corporate dogma and the rule of money can they come forth to function for the benefit of all humankind..
"No country and no people can be free and ignorant at the same time." Thomas Jefferson
“The 21st century will be spiritual, or not at all” said Andre Malraux. We could well be the last free-thinking generation, (if western civilization can still be defined as such) It’s up to us. But it will be the most influential decision we've ever made and there is not much time left to think. Rebel and evolve towards holistic science on the raw intelligence that you were born with, or forfeit your moral integrity and stick to the promulgated this is all there is cliché, -- and perish.
We are not a starting block for self-interest or system by-pass to make you a millionaire in your own right, but you will be more than rewarded in terms of intellectual fulfillment even without tangible commercial outcome.
"What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite" Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
The paradox in our time in history is that: they are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profit and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce, fancier houses but more broken homes. Of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer to kill. It is a time when there is much in the show room window and nothing in the storeroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just delete. (George Carlin)
