....Therefore, when the term ‘root cause’ is used in reference to the slumping house sales, or lack of credit, and the economic meltdown that began in 2005, it is not the root cause, but rather a symptom, a branch high up on the tree. It is a overmature tree of many branches with roots of greed, corruption, ignorance, and naive thinking rotting far below. —CK Younghere.

                   History of Banking and Money
Key Excerpts From Carroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope 

Carroll Quigley was a professor of history at Georgetown University from 1941 to 1976. He also taught at Princeton and at Harvard, and lectured at the Brookings Institution. He was a frequent lecturer at the U.S. Naval Weapons Laboratory, the Foreign Service Institute, and the Naval College at Norfolk, Virginia. His work is timely, valuable to know and basically forgotten by current policy makers.

"There does exist ... an international Anglophile network ... which we may identify as the Round Table Groups. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected ... to a few of its policies ... but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."
  -- Quote from Caroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope, Chapter 65

Quigly , 40 years ago, certainly did tell us what he could see that we were going to have to do in this, the turning point of our system's life.  He would not be surprised to see this difficult moment in history. "The hope of the twentieth century rests on its recognition that war and depression are man-made and needless. They can be avoided in the future by turning from ... nineteenth-century characteristics ... and going back to other characteristics that our Western society has always regarded as virtues: generosity, compassion, cooperation, rationality, and foresight, and finding an increased role in human life for love, spirituality, charity, and self-discipline."

Meltdown Strategies: A Few Short Lists  By Starhawk
From the New York Times Reader Responses: 
October 31, 2008
Science magazine several years ago by S. Pacala and Robert Socolow, two Princeton University professors: “Stabilization Wedges: Solving the Climate Problem for the Next 50 Years with Current Technologies” (Science Magazine, 305:968-972, August 28, 2004). Here it was shown that using a combination of 15 different energy saving options ranging from improved fuel economy, substituting natural gas for coal to increased use of nuclear fission, wind, and biofuels to improved agricultural soils management would result in not only meeting the world’s energy needs, but, also in limiting the CO2 atmospheric concentration to manageable levels. Nuclear fusion was not an option covered by Pacala and Socolow since it cannot be considered a current technology. The US has abrogated the lead in fusion energy development to the Europeans, Russians and the Japanese and is destined to play a minor role as things now stand. It is time for this decision to be re-examined.

Is money the root of all evil or a path to enlightenment? Brent Kessel is a financial planner by day and a yogi by dawn, and his answer may surprise you. He says, "Money and spirituality really are partners, and can be used to aid each other and create more spiritual awareness for ourselves as well as more financial abundance." As part of his own spiritual quest, and through interviews with such spiritual luminaries as Thich Nhat Hanh, Gangaji, Mother Teresa, and the Dalai Lama, Mr. Kessel has examined the ways money is an expression of who we are—and how who we are determines our financial condition. He explains, "Whatever financial life you have is a direct manifestation of your unconscious conditioned expectations. The nervous system is attuned to a certain relationship to money, and that attunement creates that relationship to money in the outside world." In this provocative interview he describes eight archetypes that express the ways we relate to money, and how understanding your own money type can help you bring your finances and your inner life into greater balance.

Brent Kessel is co-founder and president of Abacus Wealth Partners, named one of the top 250 wealth management firms by Bloomberg Wealth Manager. Mr. Kessel was named one of the top 250 financial advisors by Worth magazine, and has been quoted in national financial publications including Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and many more. He has also studied with such luminaries as the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle, and Jon Kabat-Zinn. He is the author of It's Not About the Money: Unlocking Your Money Type to Achieve Spiritual and Financial Abundance (HarperOne 2008).

This is one of the best books available for using dreams and active imagination for personal growth.
 ...Robert Johnson's ideas:
"If you are an only child, then you will never know the experience of having a brother or sister. If you are a woman then you are not a man, and some of the masculine experience is foreign to you. If you are married you are not single. If you are a black man you are not a white man. If you are Christian you are not Muslim. And so it goes. For every thing you choose (or that has been chosen for you), something else is unchosen. This is your unlived life." 

         "When we find ourselves in a midlife depression, suddenly hate our spouse, our jobs, our lives – we can be sure that  the unlived life is seeking our attention. When we feel restless, bored, or empty despite an outer life filled with riches, the unlived life is asking for us to engage. To not do this work will leave us depleted and despondent, with a nagging sense of ennui or failure. As you may have already discovered, doing or acquiring more does not quell your unease or dissatisfaction. Neither will “meditating on the light” or attempting to rise above the sufferings of earthly existence. Only awareness of your shadow qualities can help you to find an appropriate place for your unredeemed darkness and thereby create a more satisfying experience. To not do this work is to remain trapped in the loneliness, anxiety, and dualistic limits of the ego instead of awakening to your higher calling." 

         "We humans are given the most conflicting job description imaginable. We must be civilized human beings, and that requires a whole list of “dos and don’ts,” culturally determined values such as courtesy, politeness, fairness, efficiency, and all the other virtues – these comprise our duty to society. Family, culture and the pressures of time push us to specialize, to choose this and not that, and eventually we become one-sided beings. Simultaneously, we are called to live everything that we truly are, to be whole (which means to be hale, healthy and holy) – this is our duty to the higher Self. This collision of values makes life so confusing and painful. It is a terrible collision, though few people are fully aware of the contradictions they live out in the course of a week. We avoid waking up to this inherent conflict because it is too frightening." 

         "The reason for doing inner work is not only to resolve conflict and psychological distress, but also to find within ourselves a deep source of renewal, strength, and wisdom." 

          "The difference in a teacher and a mentor is that a mentor is interested in our soul." 

          "The only hope for healing is to offer a better form of ecstasy, to upgrade so the addict will give up the stupid one." 

           "The goal of inner work is to help clients unblock their bottlenecks and learn how to live in partnership with the unconscious rather than at its mercy." 
           
            "It's not too difficult to get the skeletons out of the closet with people, but to get the gold out is a different matter. That is therapy. Psychology is the Art of finding the gold of the spirit."

The Ascent of Humanity is about the history and future of civilization from a unique perspective: the evolution of the human sense of self. This book describes how all the expressions of our civilization—its miraculous technology as well as the pillage of earth, culture, goodness, and beauty—arise from our identity, our way of being, "the discrete and separate self". The gathering crises of our age demonstrate that this way of being is on the verge of collapse. And this collapse is setting the stage for a revolution in human beingness whose stirrings we already begin to feel.   

This book is 600 pages, and you can read it FREE on Charles Eisenstein's website. It is sold at Amazon and the author accepts donations if you want to give him a lesser amount for his 10 years of work and generosity of spirit. Here is a description of the intent, purpose and history of Charles Eisenstein's work.  It's an excellent labor of mind and heart.

"Every once in a while I come across a good video that helps explain what I've known for years but find it very difficult to explain without hostile or judgmental reactions from friends and family.  If you accept my challenge to view this video you will learn of a little piece of history you were probably not aware of.  (For those of you who already know this please excuse this preamble.)  A few years ago Galen (Whitey) Harold was charged with willful failure to file an income tax return.  His reply from the very beginning was, "Show me the law."  Well, the IRS never showed him the law and Mr. Harold went to his jury trial asking the same question.  This video is a public forum at the National Press Club.  One of the jurors is about to be introduced to describe what happened in that trial and in the jury deliberation.  It is priceless!"

Julian Edney's 2006 essay portended the 2009 crisis of morality. He has written three essays so Madoff was certainly no amazement to him.  Edney's essays on GREED are modern philosophical, political, social and economic writings, partially in book form and partially free on the internet. Check out each link.

GREED: The original essay now in book form:
- a new theory concerning the origins, nature, extent and morality of this destructive force inherent in free market economies; argues for a new interface with already-outdated environmental rhetoric; includes an array of practical solutions; extensive references.

GREED II: Is exploitation wrong?
- two discredited ideologies are rising again, laissez-faire (as Libertarianism) which aggressively promotes freedom but is disinterested in both justice and democracy, and Social Darwinism. How the classical assumption of self-interest leads to fear. The workplace versus democracy. Sociopaths. Credit cards. And a special word corporations use when explaining the damage they do. Remedies. 

GREED III:  Jeopardy
 - materialism: its threat to family values and to the individual. Recent research shows that social inequality kills. Inequality also slows economic growth. Ayn Rand's work a cause of corruption? The rich now retreating into gated communities.

THE ORIENTATION PRESENTATION

 for The Zeitgeist Movement


Synopsis from their website:

Fluid social change can only materialize if two circumstances are met. One, the human value system, which consists of our understandings and beliefs, must be updated and changed through education and thoughtful introspection. Two, the environment surrounding that value system must change to support the new world view. The interaction between a person's value system and their environment is what influences human behavior.
















Synopsis from their websiite: The Venus Project 

A Resource-Based Economy is a system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude. All resources become the common heritage of all of the inhabitants, not just a select few. The premise upon which this system is based is that the Earth is abundant with plentiful resource; our practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter productive to our survival.

As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions to the problems plaguing our world.

The Venus Project is an organization that proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer paper proclamations but a way of life

The Granddaddy of Sustainability























from Wikipedia: Buckminster Fuller was concerned about sustainability and about human survival under the existing socio-economic system, yet remained optimistic about humanity's future. Defining wealth in terms of knowledge, as the "technological ability to protect, nurture, support, and accommodate all growth needs of life," his analysis of the condition of "Spaceship Earth" led him to conclude that at a certain time in the 1970s, humanity had marked an unprecedented watershed. He was convinced that the accumulation of relevant knowledge, combined with the quantities of key recyclable resources that had already been extracted from the earth, had reached a critical level, such that competition for necessities was no longer necessary. Cooperation had become the optimum survival strategy. "Selfishness," he declared, "is unnecessary and hence-forth unrationalizable.... War is obsolete."

From his website....Fuller was amazing! This year, on January 31st the Center for Spirituality and Sustainability in Edwardsville, IL gave Buckminster Fuller their annual Sustainability Award “in recognition of his prescient awareness of the urgent necessity of planetary stewardship, his courage and creativity in breaking through apparent limits to design possibilities, his moral and spiritual commitment to applying intelligence for the welfare of the earth and its inhabitants, and for the insights and inspiration inherent in the principles he articulated and the designs he instantiated.”

According to some very studied folks, income tax for average Americans is unconstitutional. This is an excellent presentation of the issue. Nothing is really as it seems, so why not read it and see what you think.
    It is called the 861 Evidence.

As you may realize if you have gotten this far, that  the point of DownSize to Thrive is to enhance your dedication to breaking out of your boxes, so you can thrive during the journey regardless of the difficulty. All experiences, however painful, must be seen for the lessons they bring. That's the perspective that will allow us as much autonomy and clarity as possible and THAT is thriving. On that note, here are some REAL NEWS SITES. There are many more, of course, but these are a great start. It'll keep you busy.  SK




                  

                     ENERGY GRID   
One of my favorite sites

I came across Energy Grid  years ago and has been one of my favorite sites since.  When you check it out, read Andrew P's articles for clarity about the New Age Movement. He can differentiate between the elements and makes sense of all the variables and egos.  It's a multi layered site and has a lot of cutting edge news, spiritual clarity and varied topics. 

And here is another of my favorite articles amidst the many in Energy Grid. It's by Denis Campbell entitled: Don't Drink the Kool Aid was written in 2006. Like Andrew P's work, Campbell's article is about the tricks of the trade in the "spiritual marketing world". Campbell relisted his piece on his own website (see below) a few months ago since hypocrisy is always a timely subject.... and amusing. Of course self-awareness is a most important subject, but it's the "bliss-ninnies" that make the "New Age Movement" an easy mark. 
He lays it out clearly:
"The spiritual marketing world is full of people who start out with high intentions, and then they inhale a bit of success and spend the next 20 years trying to hold it all together, while remaining relevant and getting others to drink their Kool-Aid. With a charismatic onstage presence – many have theatrical or television backgrounds as former actors and actresses – they use group trance, hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming's positively embedded commands and the best can quite literally hold a room of 500 people at the end of their fingertip. They're skilled actors, likeable, charming, disarming, share their wounds (or at least a very polished re-enactment of them as part of the shtick) and are VERY believable." 
Here is the complete  article on UKProgressive.












                      
                        This is the REVIEW written on 9/9/09 about 
DownSize to Thrive by Andrew, the editor of ENERGY GRID: 

DownSize to Thrive is a practical, advice-packed website that shows the reader how to find balance in life and with the environment so that we can survive the 21st Century. From inner growth to managing your money, from learning to embrace simplicity to being satisfied with less, from natural health to emotional balance, this site is a treasure trove of wisdom that is becoming increasingly non-optional as we teeter toward the possibility of societal or ecological collapse. Check out the Survival Bible section which offers a one-page solution to the global crises.

 This most diverse, interesting and informative news site isn't one dimensional. They have many sides.... from Liberal to Libertarian, from hemp to "preparedness" with organic seeds, to lots of free web broadcasts about everything from the Federal Reserve to Ron Paul as their main man.   A good alternative news site to check out.

This website does not suggest that it contains the "truth". The truth is a combination of all information and all facts relating to a topic. It is therefore unachievable (in my opinion) for anyone to say "I know the truth." ...........................

If you came to this site in search of "the truth" you will be disappointed. That is also true of CNN, FOX , ABC etc. If you came to gather information you may find it a useful resource.....each citizen has a civic responsibility to inform himself and share that information with others. The corporate media pumps information into our homes and does a great job of providing the information that our government wants us to know. It has in my opinion become the propaganda arm of government, and a great number of those who call themselves  journalists are in fact nothing less than presstitutes.

When this book came out in 1988, it took thinkers all over the country by storm. We were calling each other like wildfire,  and without cell phones or computers to let us know about this amazing book. It  is a  book that synthesizes  spiritual insights and elements of the human condition, breaking them down into elements we can understand. This book organized my mind around it's desire to synthesize the bigger picture.   

From the website adishakti.org come a brief explanation of  UNKNOWN MAN.  Here is one paragraph:

"The author blends science and mysticism, facts and speculation to create a vivid and unexpected portrait of the coming changelings: their appearance, their physical, mental and spiritual differences and the way in which we — the old Homo sapiens need to prepare ground for those already on our doorstep

In a dramatic moment I might say that I created this entire website just to tell you about this book, UNKNOWN MAN (and The Peace Pilgrim). Like creating this website, reading Unknown Man cleared my mind.  It's impossible to be in harmony if our minds are too full. 
"To live in a pristine land ... to roam the wilderness ... to choose a site, cut trees, and build a home ... Thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them. Here is a tribute to a man in tune with his surroundings who carved his masterpiece out of the beyond..." and also took pictures with his Bolex camera making films of his self-sufficiency and kept complete records of his 30 years in the Alaskan wilderness. This is the essence of functional simplicity. Fantastic! 
The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns.

It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
 "Alone in the Wilderness" is the story of Dick Proenneke living in the Alaska wilderness. Dick filmed his adventures so he could show his relatives in the lower 48 states what life was like in Alaska, building his cabin, hunting for food and exploring the area. Bob Swerer has taken the best footage from Dick's films and he has created 3 videos about Dick, "Alone in the Wilderness", "Alaska, Silence and Solitude" and "The Frozen North". You can purchase all of them in DVD or VHS format from the www.DickProenneke.com website. 


The Simple Living Network links to lots of great books and references for details about how to SIMPLIFY. Real People Finding Peace & Fulfillment In A Complex World.
 
Choosing Simplicity is a groundbreaking work that goes beyond the books that tell you why to simplify and how to simplify your life. This is the book that tells all -- what has really happened in the lives of real people who have done it. How does simplicity translate in our modern day-to-day world? Can people who embrace this lifestyle sustain it over time? What are the downsides? Is it worth it? Do they miss the "old way?" 
by Timothy Bostom
Financial strains, housing crisis, credit crunch, climate change, overconsumption, war, and a general malaise plague our world, but what do they all have in common? They are a consequence of a modern way of behaving that all too often excludes the simpler ways in life. How do we truly feel when we buy extra 'things' amidst store crowds in comparison to chatting and watching a sunset with people we love? Why are we more willing to spend time buying those lifeless objects instead of receiving a warm free hug? Have we been incorrectly programmed in some manner?  What products are truly life sustaining, and what is causing us stress? How have we lost our way and why? The Audacity of Simplicity tackles these questions and more by revealing some of the very notions that defy a world of turmoil, decay, and unhappiness. It asks us to walk in strength towards a more hopeful future that redefines progress and success as personal and social well-being, environmental stewardship, relationship-building, non-material growth, inner reflection, and social capital. It envisions a caring humanity with shared emotions and a common destiny.

This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, bankers, and investors in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global "Peak Oil.

  MEDICAL FASCISM ARRIVES IN THE U.S.

It's impossible to make sense out of opinions and that's all we've got on any side. Everyone thinks they know more than they do. Those who know the truth aren't talking to the masses. So let's go on record on Sept.9, 09 to see if this "Conspiracy Theory" has any validity.  Through this winter we will see if any of this happens or not. SK 


A short recap: 1) a bioengineered swine flu has been created by fascist medical labs, very likely located in the U.S.  2) the swine flu variety is of a mild type  3) despite the relative harmlessness of the swine flu, a level 6 pandemic has been declared by the W.H.O. 4) official reporting of all swine flu cases and identification of flu cases as actually being H1N1 has been terminated, so that phoney statistics can be manufactured and the fear level intentionally ramped up  5) disclosure of the harmful constituents of the vaccinations (THE REAL HEALTH THREAT) has been kept secret so that the full, short and long term health dangers can be kept from the people  6) simultaneously, the existence of natural, safe and very effective flu protection protocols have been systematically kept from the public through the mass media, so that pharmaceutical drugs appear to be the only defense against the H1N1 virus  7) using hyped propaganda, a plan to force vaccinations on the populace has been put into place and will soon be implemented.

(NaturalNews) Your right to eat healthy food and use supplements of your choice is rapidly vanishing, but every effort has been made to keep you in the dark about the coming nutricide. Codex Alimentarius is scheduled for full global implementation on December 31, 2009, and not a word has been spoken in main stream media about this threat to humanity. Yet, according to the projections of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a minimum of 3 billion people will die from the Codex mandated vitamin and mineral guideline alone. As the clock ticks toward this irrevocable deadline, the Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF) and its medical director, Dr. Rima Laibow, are feverishly working to change Codex guidelines. They need your help.
 Codex Alimentarius - Dare you ignore it?
         from:   Remedies Direct

More and more people are becoming concerned about the shady, secretive organization that is Codex Alimentarius - the thinly-veiled propaganda arm of the international pharmaceutical industry that does everything it can to promote industry objectives whilst limiting individual options to maintain health (which would diminish mermbers profits).

Codex alimentarius is one of the major bodies behind the effort to limit access to nutritional products and information. Its motivation is not rocket science and neither is the source of its funding - money that somehow expected to return a profit to its members . . . Most of the information available regarding codex alimentarius refers to its role in the USA, but it is not a US-specific body. Far from it, Codex has wiggled its dirty little tentacles into just about every national or international body concerned with public health. Posing as a benefactor, it then uses its significant financial and political clout to do its masters bidding.

In 1986 I was fortunate enough to go on a Shamanic anthropology trip to southern Mexico with Joan Halifax and her associates. 

 There were 35 people on the three week trip ranging in age from 25 to 85.   In the meantime, check out the pictures from San Juan de Chamula, an amazing mountain town in Chiapas, which doesn't allow pictures to be taken during the Festival of Chamula (which we attended). The indigenous Indios are amazing people. It's quite a story but I have to leave something for my old age to write about....

The pyramid in Palenque is one of the most important structures in all of the Americas. The decision to move the tomb from its original location certainly alters the energy.  So to see what you won't be able to see now as a seeker"/traveler, check out the personal travel site by George and Audrey DeLange, another traveling couple who have done a great job exploring and sharing their adventures with us. Their pictures of Palenque show the REAL descent into the Temple of Inscriptions before it was closed.  I thought you weren't supposed to move these power structures, folks.... that does NOT feel "right", as they say.......

ART THAT CAN CHANGE OUR WORLD


Death is an interesting and fascinatung transition , but once in a while something (besides our loves ones) comes along that reminds us what we will miss in physical form when we have left this planet. Sure, we don't need the inspiration in energy form, but it's the excitement of our experiences here that drew us into form in the first place.

Well, this video shows the brilliance and depth of the human and how, through our many talents, we show what drives us and who we are inside.  Here is such a being.  A beautiful and passionate artist, inside and out. To watch the world impacted by someone like this lovely young woman is truly phenomenal. You can't miss this one.




Kseniya Simonova is a 24 year old Ukrainian artist who won "Ukraine's Got Talent" for 2009.  With a giant light box and intense music to punctuate the happenings in her sand painting, Kseniya interprets Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.
You will be fascinated and moved. No doubt.


These are women and men who exemplified: " (the) courage, honesty, tolerance, generosity, wisdom and compassion that have made our country strong. One lesson that can be learned from all of these Americans is that the greatness of our country frequently depends not on the letter of the law, but the insistence of a single person that we adhere to the spirit of the law." 
Robert Shetterly began painting his "Americans Who Tell the Truth" series for a lot of reasons. His site will "show and tell" it all. 
Shetterly was moved to paint these portraits of Americans and to add some of their immortal words on the paintings. 
Here is one of the portraits that tour learning institutions in the U.S. Bet you don't know who this "tell it like it is" man is..... find out HERE.  There are many other mentors to whom Shetterly gives respect and acknowledgment. It's a wonderful way for us to learn about our devoted teachers.

 The Bee Photographer 
My favorite country for bee gathering astonishment is Nepal. Here is Eric's section about the HONEY GATHERS from Nepal
There is an older picture book about the Napalese honey hunters which I bought 20 years ago, so I was even more excited to find Eric's work.  Here is his book called Le Peuple des Abeilles. You can order it on Amazon from France
From his site:  “My approach for all of these images was to try to capture live bees in photos by having the bees pose as models". Here is a picture of Eric's beautiful models from his page for purchasing  BEE POSTERS
Linda Tellington-Jones
On our Shamanic Anthropology Mexican trip group was a fantastically talented lady whose work as an "animal teacher and healer" is well known in the horse circles. FYI, Linda also could recite poetry for hours with no memory loss. It boggled my mind, for sure since my concept of "Living in the Now" means I don't stress because I can't recall my best friend's names. (Sigh).

Linda's prodigiously expansive energy talents allows her to bond with animals like "magic". 

 She uses no mouth bit or reins and has the animals relaxing and learning to live in freedom in a short period of time.. 

BLOG LIST 
Mock, paper, scissors  This blogger has it down. He's a Link King and brings all kinds of stimulating folks into a  community with spunk and heart. 
He included a very brave friend of mine whose blog is entitled:  Salmon Alley: Liberal Posts from a Conservative Neighborhood. My friend Mark really does live smack dab in the middle of FOX News folks. They are considered friends, but he pulls out the stops on an intellectual level, and for that has my utmost admiration. Hell, I can't stand bothing to disagree with people who agree with my world view. God love these bloggers.

Mock, paper, scissors said about Salmon Alley: Scissorheads: get thee hence to Salmon Alley for a rollicking good time. It’s smart, and snarky, and there are some great tunes, too.

John Taylor Gatto
Speech to the Vermont Homeschooling Conference
entitled: A SHORT ANGRY HISTORY OF 
AMERICAN FORCED SCHOOLING

This speech is found on numerous sites. One of them is the Preservation Institute which also lists his writing in the web. They say,
 "A former New York teacher of the year, Gatto is the most interesting writer on education today. He shows that our bureaucratic schools and our bureaucratic society get in the way of learning, and he often contrasts modern America with 19th century America, where family, work, and democratic self-government let people educate themselves.. "

The preface to the speech begins: "John Gatto is the former New York State Teacher of the Year who renounced the government school system in his landmark book DUMBING US DOWN. He is constantly in demand as a public speaker.

As a bit of background, the industrial titans of the 1890's began to think that not only could the production line be engineered, but people's lives could be engineered as well, in order to work like homogeneous robots with the machines. Rockefeller and Carnegie gave huge sums to prominent academics to see if this could be realized through the educational system. They found that to a considerable extent it could, and it is still being done today as evidenced in the Congressional Record during the Clinton administration. This is the story that John Gatto has to tell"  DB)

       What is the 
Voluntary Human Extinction Movement?

VHEMT (pronounced vehement) is a movement not an organization. It’s a movement advanced by people who care about life on planet Earth. We’re not just a bunch of misanthropes and anti-social, Malthusian misfits, taking morbid delight whenever disaster strikes humans. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Voluntary human extinction is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters.

We don’t carry on about how the human race has shown itself to be a greedy, amoral parasite on the once-healthy face of this planet. That type of negativity offers no solution to the inexorable horrors which human activity is causing.

Rather, The Movement presents an encouraging alternative to the callous exploitation and wholesale destruction of Earth’s ecology.

As VHEMT Volunteers know, the hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions of species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one species: Homo sapiens... us.

Each time another one of us decides to not add another one of us to the burgeoning billions already squatting on this ravaged planet, another ray of hope shines through the gloom.

When every human chooses to stop breeding, Earth’s biosphere will be allowed to return to its former glory, and all remaining creatures will be free to live, die, evolve (if they believe in evolution), and will perhaps pass away, as so many of Nature’s “experiments” have done throughout the eons. 

Q: How do I join?

Being VHEMT is a state of mind. All you have to do to join is make the choice to refrain from further reproduction. For some, this is an easy decision to make. For others, it’s a moot issue. But for many, joining The Movement means making a monumental personal sacrifice.

The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement is not an organization, so no membership dues go to officials in offices. We are millions of individuals, each doing what we feel is best. Join with other VHEMT Volunteers and Supporters.

 #2) One of the many little publicized Human Rights Organizations in Israel. 
There's a lot of peace activity going on that we don't know about.

B'TSELEM - The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories was established in 1989 by a group of prominent academics, attorneys, journalists, and Knesset members. It endeavors to document and educate the Israeli public and policymakers about human rights violations in the Occupied Territories, combat the phenomenon of denial prevalent among the Israeli public, and help create a human rights culture in Israel.
As an Israeli human rights organization, B'Tselem acts primarily to change Israeli policy in the Occupied Territories and ensure that its government, which rules the Occupied Territories, protects the human rights of residents there and complies with its obligations under international law.

B'Tselem is independent and is funded by contributions from foundations in Europe and North America that support human rights activity worldwide, and by private individuals in Israel and abroad.
B'Tselem has attained a prominent place among human rights organizations. In December, 1989 it received the Carter-Menil Award for Human Rights. Its reports have gained B'Tselem a reputation for accuracy, and the Israeli authorities relate to them seriously. B'Tselem ensures the reliability of information it publishes by conducting its own fieldwork and research, the results of which are thoroughly cross-checked with relevant documents, official government sources, and information from other sources, among them Israeli, Palestinian, and other human rights organizations.

"Ringling Bros circus abuses animals including baby elephants (Dec 2009)
When you go to an animal circus, never forget that the obedience and tricks the animals are performing are the result of many hundreds of hours of torture and abuse. Elephants don't stand on their heads unless they are beaten into submission by cruel profit driven human beings. The picture on the right is of a baby elephant being abused so that it leans to lie down on instruction. The handlers use polls with spikes and electric shocks to "encourage" compliance, as well as ropes and tethers. This abuse is unacceptable in any civilized society, so please STOP going to the animal circus tents of horror." For more info visit: ringling beats animals.com

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.” Bertrand Russell

My youngest son pointed me to the Dunning-Kruger effect on Wikipedia. For years I have moaned about how everyone I know, with few exceptions, don't seem to know how little they know.Seems to be one of the ways the human mind works. Damn.


From Wikipedia:
 Essentially, this is a cognitive bias where unskilled people rate themselves much higher than their ability and skilled people rate themselves lower than their ability. The ignorant are blissful and the informed are self-deprecating–how interesting! I’m not sure this cognitive bias explains “ignorance is bliss,” but it certainly helps me understand some people better and helps to remove self-doubt. Here’s a snippet from the Wikipedia article:The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it."[1] The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the perverse situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence: because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."[1]

LEFT AND RIGHT TOGETHER
By Dr. Robert Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, Ret.
National Commander, “The Patriots”


            The United States is in trouble.  We’re in danger of becoming a fascist dictatorship where big government and big business combine to rule, and where the people are considered just a source of labor.  The marriage of government and the investor class has succeeded in exporting our jobs, importing illegal laborers to provide a pool of cheap labor, and driving down wages for all American workers, destroying the middle class.  Their foreign and military policies have led us into unnecessary wars of aggression to gain raw materials and enhance profits of the global robber barons.  Their trade policies have resulted in capital flight, job loss, trade deficits, and the ownership of much of our infrastructure by foreign interests.

            We’ve gotten into this fix because our presidents, of both parties, have been servants of the global investors, and because our representatives in Congress, again of both parties, have abdicated their Constitutional responsibilities and subjected themselves to an imperial presidency.  Read More of this article Here

The Veil is Lifted, The Gloves Are Off
By Elaine Brower
Toward the end.......There is no justice in this system. There never was, and never will be. There is only hatred, fear, and an elite system of injustice. The judge is only a puppet of the state and did what he was told to do. The prosecutor is a prostitute and regurgitates enough bullshit to make people afraid enough to go home and lock their doors so they too won't wind up like Lynn Stewart. When she was wrongfully sentenced to 10 years behind bars, there should have been a riot in the courtroom. Instead, everyone left.

Folks, it has always been like this. I didn't live through the McCarthy era, and was happy I didn't. I am a child of the 60's and the radicalness of the 70's. I thought, in my naiveté, that this country stood for something good, and protected freedom of speech, the rights of people of color to live and work without the threat of police oppression, and most of all, it was a nation that was accepting and tolerant of those who came here from all over the world to experience the "American dream."

What a bunch of crap. It has always been a bad system. Sometimes there would be breakthroughs in civil rights, or women's rights, but those where aberrations. Not the norm. The system would again rise up to take it all away, because it wasn't meant to be fair and just for all people, only those who are the elite in this society. It always brings me back to how this country was founded, on the blood of those who already lived here.

And so it goes, we see the true face of American justice. Take a good look while the veil is lifted, because it will be dropped again, and you will be fooled into thinking if only we had more hope.

From Wikipedia comes this information: 
 United States Attorney General Ramsey Clark was interviewed about the case on Democracy Now! on February 11, 2005. He said:
It is clear that Lynne Stewart and the truth and the Constitution of the United States are all victims of 9/11 and of a repressive government that is taking advantage of the fear that they have helped create arising from that that is destroying freedom in this country...This case would never have been brought except for the fear generated and the advantage that the Bush administration was taking of it by the events on September 11, 2001. In ordinary times and circumstances, it would be recognized that everything that Lynne did was exactly what an effective attorney representing a client zealously would be obligated to do...I don’t know of anything that Lynne did that I didn’t do. We did what we had to do to represent our clients. And if you don’t do that, then you don’t have truth before the jury or before the public and you don’t have the Constitutional right to the assistance of counsel.[6]
Michael Tigar, her attorney, gave his opinion of the significance of Ramsey Clark coming to her defense. Claiming the U.S. government was running 'concentration camps', he said:
Ramsey Clark set an example here because he didn’t have to come to court and stand up for Lynne, but he did it, and it shows that this case really is a threat to all the lawyers who are out there attempting to represent people that face these terrible consequences...The only way that we will ever get to the bottom of the American concentration camp abuses at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib is that if the lawyers for these prisoners are permitted to tell their stories to the world. If the government can shut off that communication, which they have attempted to do over and over and over again, these activities will continue in secret.[6]

The Rosenberg's ghosts are alive and well in America today. 
Stephen Lendman's previous articles can be accessed through the following links:






















In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries. 



NAOMI KLEIN is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author of the New York Times and #1 international bestseller, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. Published worldwide in 2007, The Shock Doctrine is being translated in over 25 languages and has over a million copies in print. It appeared on multiple ‘best of year’ lists including as a New York Times Critics’ Pick of the Year. Rachel Maddow called The Shock Doctrine, "The only book of the last few years in American publishing that I would describe as a mandatory must-read.”

Wikileaks says: “The film portrays Manning’s alleged acts as failure of character rather than a triumph of conscience. The portrayal of Manning’s alleged relationship to WikiLeaks and to Assange is grossly irresponsible and suggests – erroneously and when evidence is to the contrary – that Assange may be guilty of conspiring with Bradley Manning to commit espionage or similar offences. The film buys into the current US government position that journalists and publishers can be prosecuted as co-conspirators alongside their alleged sources.

There are many Power Places on Earth and Palenque, Mexico is one of the most intense in the Western Hemisphere.
PALENQUE 
Nestled in a dense jungle forest in a dramatic mountain setting, Palenque is considered one of the most impressive and esoteric of Mexico's Mayan ruins. Deep  within the Temple of the Inscriptons, is the "Tomb" of The Great Pakal and this energy source holds a power and mystery.  Here is an enjoyable personal travel site created by LA and Susan Wyatt. They are having a lot of fun and created a nice page about Palenque, one of the most impressive of all of the Mayan recovered cities. Their overview of Palenque in pictoral form is fun to real. I am including one of their pictures so you can click and go directly to their site. 

Although many archeologists consider that the The Temple of  Inscriptions is the funerary monument of Pakal, the first great sovereign of Palenque... there are more esoteric beliefs about this most important inscribed sarcophagus. I had a life shifting experience when viewing the inscriptions. Most unfortunately for those who have a deep affinity for the Mayans, the temple is now closed to the public and the hieroglyphic panels described the family tree of King Pakal have been moved to the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. The tomb itself seems to have been moved to the Museum in Palenque.

Now he is focused on photography of bees, nature and humans ....and he brings us a  delightfully expressive website that shows indigenous cultures in 9 countries and their traditional bee gathering methods. His book and posters are also available.




It covers many cutting edge cover-up informational subjects, but another focus is to balance this provocative  information with inspirational writings which call us to be all that we can be. This link is the spiritual side of this great site. We must always add this in to all that we learn and do so we can really end up working together for positive change. This is an exceptional site.

The 13 Things They Avoid

This post got a lot of traction, said Forbes.... (because TIMES ARE HARD and getting HARDER. People have to bump it up fast... faster than we really want to go... but there's no choice in a time where time itself is speeding up.)  

First of all, let us not think that this guide is about learning not to care, getting hard, getting cold-hearted or self absorbed......... it's about learning not to keep giving people more and more of your energy IF THEY ARE NOT LOOKING AT THEMSELVES and joining you in progressing toward health, wellness and emotional truths. (That's my take, of course, because these articles don't talk about the bigger or deeper issues that really CAUSE people's problems ...nor the ways to get there).

Look, to evolve, we have to do very deep work on ourselves (since we are all assholes and all have issues we hope to avoid dealing with), but real inner work is hugely unpopular because it's HARD. OK, agreed.... we all have issues and we know that the individual is responsible for her own integration, but in the meantime, IS THIS GUIDE OF VALUE OR NOT?  The answer is YES!  It's a synthesis of  seemingly simple things that are some of the hardest things for caring people to do.  Yes, a psychopath can do them with no problem....... hence the sociopath's success rate is astronomical in business.... but caring people can learn these traits AND STILL CARE.

So let us not think that this guide is about learning not to care..... it's about learning not to keep giving people more and more of your energy if they are not looking at themselves for the answers to their bullshit. Yes, we ALL have issues, but we also have huge denials and we must look at ourselves as the cause of our dilemmas. Being heart centered doesn't mean we have to be naive or overly forgiving when, for example, a family member or work partner is making too many errors of judgment for the continuation of our survival. Change is the only constant.   Remember, this is not in place of INTUITION or RIGHT BRAIN or HEART. It's just another track we need to learn to let go and move on.                                              Here are the HEADINGS                                  
                                                                
 1. Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves. 2. Give Away Their Power. 3. Shy Away from Change. 4. Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control. 5. Worry About Pleasing Others.6. Fear Taking Calculated Risks. 7. Dwell on the Past. 8. Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over. 9. Resent Other People’s Success. 10. Give Up After Failure. 11. Fear Alone Time. 12. Feel the World Owes Them Anything. 13. Expect Immediate Results. 

You may have wondered.... it took over 15 years to get this site into its present format. To keep it current is equally as time consuming. Many thanks for the donations needed to keep it current.
