“Arrival at truth is many-layered… because it requires… the lifting of veils. It requires quietude and introspection.
Today men speak of evolution… revolution… even devolution. Yet too few speak of involution – looking inside one’s self, or turning inward – that they may look before they leap.”

The study of nonverbal bodily movements, such as gestures and facial expressions, as communication.

Kinesics is the interpretation of body language such as facial expressions and gestures — or, more formally, non-verbal behavior related to movement, either of any part of the body or the body as a whole.
Birdwhistell's work
The term was first used (in 1952) by Ray Birdwhistell, an anthropologist who wished to study how people communicate through posture, gesture, stance, and movement, and later popularised during the late 1960's by "hippies" seeking to deverbalise human communication. Part of Birdwhistell's work involved making film of people in social situations and analyzing them to show different levels of communication not clearly seen otherwise. The study was joined by several other anthropologists, including Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson.

Drawing heavily on descriptive linguistics, Birdwhistell argued that all movements of the body have meaning (i.e. are not accidental), and that these non-verbal forms of language (or paralanguage) have a grammar that can be analyzed in similar terms to spoken language. Thus, a "kineme" is "similar to a phoneme because it consists of a group of movements which are not identical, but which may be used interchangeably without affecting social meaning". (Knapp 1972:94-95)

Birdwhistell estimated that "no more than 30 to 35 percent of the social meaning of a conversation or an interaction is carried by the words." (Birdwhistell, 1985: 158). He also concluded that there were no universals in these kinesic displays - a claim disproved by Paul Ekman's analysis of universals in facial expression.

A few Birdwhistell-isms are as follows:
  • Social personality is a temporo-spatial system. All behaviors evinced by any such system are components of the system except as related to different levels of abstractions.
  • Even if no participant of an interaction field can recall, or repeat in a dramatized context, a given series or sequence of body motions, the appearance of a motion is of significance to the general study of the particular kinesic system even if the given problem can be rationalized without reference to it.
  • All meaningful body motion patterns are to be regarded as socially learned until empirical investigation reveals otherwise.
  • No kineme ever stands alone.

Modern applications
In one current application, kinesics are used as signs of deception by interviewers. Interviewers look for clusters of movements to determine the veracity of the statement being uttered. Some related words may be:

  • Emblems - Substitute for words and phrases
  • Illustrators - Accompany or reinforce verbal messages
  • Affect Displays - Show emotion
  • Regulators - Control the flow and pace of communication
  • Adaptors - Release physical or emotional tension
Kinesics are an important part of non-verbal communication behavior. The movement of the body, or separate parts, conveys many specific meanings and the interpretations may be culture bound. As many movements are carried out at a subconscious or at least a low-awareness level, kinesic movements carry a significant risk of being misinterpreted in an intercultural communications situation.

Inspired by Stanley Milgram's iconic experiments on obedience, and interested in understanding why people were induced to obey unjust regimes, Psychologist Philip Zimbardo paid college students to participate in a mock prison, as prisoners and guards.
One of the central findings of the study is that individuals only move towards tyranny once they have come to identify with a group and its leadership (in a way that Zimbardo's briefing of his guards encouraged) and once an authoritarian agenda has come to define that group's identity and to be seen as a solution to its problems.

A theory holding that economic variations within a given system, such as changing rates of inflation, are most often caused by increases or decreases in the money supply
A policy that seeks to regulate an economy by altering the domestic money supply, especially by increasing it in a moderate but steady manner
monetarist mon'e·ta·rist adj. & n.
Britannica Concise Encyclopedia
School of economic thought that maintains that the money supply is the chief determinant of economic activity. Milton Friedman and his followers promoted monetarism as an alternative to Keynesian economics (John Maynard Keynes); their economic theories became influential in the 1970s and early 1980s. Monetarism holds that a change in the money supply directly affects and determines production, employment, and price levels, though its influence is evident only over a long and often variable period of time. Fundamental to the monetarist approach is the rejection of fiscal policy in favour of monetary rule. Friedman and others asserted that fiscal measures such as tax-policy changes or increased government spending have little significant effect on the fluctuations of the business cycle. They argued that government intervention in the economy should be kept to a minimum and asserted that economic conditions would change before specific policy measures designed to address them could take effect. Steady, moderate growth of the money supply, in their view, offered the best hope of assuring a constant rate of economic growth with low inflation. U.S. economic performance in the 1980s cast doubts on monetarism, and the proliferation of new types of bank deposits made it difficult to calculate the money supply.
Oxford Dictionary of Politics
An economic doctrine which argues that changes in the supply of money in an economy cause changes in the general price level. Coupled with this is a stress on minimal economic intervention by government and an emphasis on the free play of market forces. The term was first coined by Karl Brunner in 1968 but its antecedents can be traced back to the quantity theory of money developed in the writings of classical theorists such as Locke and Hume. It was through the work of Milton Friedman, beginning in the 1950s, that the quantity theory was revived. Friedman and his associates, the so-called Chicago School of economists, argued that control of inflation could only be successful through restrictions in the growth of the money supply. By the 1970s these arguments found political succour due to the emergence of high levels of inflation and unemployment which suggested the breakdown of Keynesian demand management policies. Hence, within Britain the Labour government adopted control of the money supply as an economic objective from 1976. The Conservative administration under Margaret Thatcher in 1979 continued this process although an emphasis on the free market was also fervently pursued. Strict control of the money supply had largely been abandoned by the mid-1980s. Despite this an emphasis on the free market and the importance of controlling inflation still pervades Conservative rhetoric.
Columbia Encyclopedia
monetarism, economic theory that monetary policy, or control of the money supply, is the primary if not sole determinant of a nation's economy. Monetarists believe that management of the money supply to produce credit ease or restraint is the chief factor influencing inflation or deflation, recession (see depression) or growth; they dismiss fiscal policy (government spending and taxation) as ineffective in regulating economic performance. Milton Friedman was the leading modern proponent for monetarism.
Dictionary of Cultural Literacy - Economics
The economic doctrine that the supply of money has a major impact on a nation's economic growth. For example, monetarists prefer to control inflation by restricting the growth of a nation's money supply rather than by raising taxes. The doctrine is associated with Milton Friedman.
Monetarism is a tendency in economic thought that emphasizes the role of governments in controlling the amount of money in circulation. It is the view within monetary economics that variation in the money supply has major influences on national output in the short run and the price level over longer periods and that objectives of monetary policy are best met by targeting the growth rate of the money supply.
Monetarism today is mainly associated with the work of Milton Friedman, who was among the generation of economists to accept Keynesian economics and then criticize it on its own terms. Friedman and Anna Schwartz wrote an influential book, A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960, and argued that "inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon." Though opposed to the existence of the Federal Reserve, but given that it does exist, Friedman advocated a central bank policy aimed at keeping the supply and demand for money at equilibrium, as measured by growth in productivity and demand.
Otto von Bismarck and German Unification
Blood and Iron speech
German unification had been one of the major objectives during the widespread revolutions of 1848–49, when representatives of the German states met in Frankfurt and drafted a constitution creating a federal union with a national parliament to be elected by universal male suffrage. In April 1849, the Frankfurt Parliament offered the title of Emperor to the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm IV. The Prussian king, fearing the opposition of the other German princes and the military intervention of Austria and Russia, refused to accept this popular mandate. Thus, the Frankfurt Parliament ended in failure for the German liberals. On 30 September 1862, Bismarck made a speech to the Budget Committee of the Prussian Chamber of Deputies, which included Bismarck's emphasis on using "iron and blood"—that is, military power—to achieve his goals.
    Prussia must concentrate and maintain its power for the favorable moment which has already slipped by several times. Prussia's boundaries according to the Vienna treaties are not favorable to a healthy state life. The great questions of the time will not be resolved by speeches and majority decisions—that was the great mistake of 1848 and 1849—but by iron and blood.
Fabian strategy
The Fabian strategy is a military strategy where pitched battles and frontal assaults are avoided in favor of wearing down an opponent through a war of attrition and indirection. While avoiding decisive battles, the side employing this strategy harasses its enemy through skirmishes to cause attrition, disrupt supply and affect morale. Employment of this strategy implies that the weaker side believes time is on its side, but it may also be adopted when no feasible alternative strategy can be devised.
This strategy derives its name from Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus, the dictator of the Roman Republic given the task of defeating the great Carthaginian general Hannibal in southern Italy during the Second Punic War (218–202 BC). At the start of the war, Hannibal boldly crossed the Alps in wintertime and invaded Italy. Due to Hannibal's skill as a general, he repeatedly inflicted devastating losses on the Romans despite the numerical inferiority of his army—quickly achieving two crushing victories over the Romans at the Battle of Trebbia and the Battle of Lake Trasimene. After these disasters the Romans appointed Fabius Maximus as dictator. Well aware of the military superiority of the Carthaginians and the ingenuity of Hannibal, Fabius initiated a war of attrition which was designed to exploit Hannibal's strategic vulnerabilities.
Hannibal suffered from two particular weaknesses. First, he was commander of an invading foreign army on Italian soil, effectively cut off from the home country by the difficulty of seaborne resupply. His only hope of destroying Rome was by enlisting the support of her allies. As long as the Italians remained loyal to Rome, then there was no hope that Hannibal would win; but should the Romans keep on losing battles, their allies’ faith in Rome would weaken. Therefore, Fabius calculated that the way to defeat Hannibal was to avoid engaging with him in pitched battles, so as to deprive him of victories. He determined that Hannibal's extended supply lines, and the cost of maintaining the Carthaginian army in the field, meant that Rome had time on its side. Rather than fight, Fabius shadowed Hannibal's army and avoided battle, instead sending out small detachments against Hannibal’s foraging parties, and maneuvering the Roman army in hilly terrain, so as to nullify Hannibal’s decisive superiority in cavalry. Residents of small northern villages were encouraged to post lookouts, so that they could gather their livestock and possessions and take refuge in fortified towns. He used interior lines to ensure that at no time could Hannibal march on Rome without abandoning his Mediterranean ports, while at the same time inflicting constant, small, debilitating defeats on the North Africans. This, Fabius knew, would wear down the invaders’ endurance and discourage Rome’s allies from going over to the enemy, without having to challenge the Carthaginians to a decisive battle.
Hannibal's second weakness was that much of his army was made up of mercenaries from Gaul and Spain, who had no great loyalty to Hannibal, although they disliked Rome. Being mercenaries, they were unequipped for siege-type battles; having neither the equipment nor the patience for such a campaign. The mercenaries desired quick, overwhelming battles and raids of villages for plunder, much like land-based pirates. As such, Hannibal's army was virtually no threat to Rome, a walled city which would have required a long siege to reduce, which is why Hannibal never attempted it. Hannibal's only option was to beat Roman armies in the field quickly before plunder ran out and the Gauls and Spaniards deserted for plunder elsewhere. Fabius's strategy of delaying battle and attacking supply chains thus hit right at the heart of Hannibal's weakness; time, not energy, would cripple Hannibal's advances. The Fabian strategy, though effective in some ways, was perceived as cowardly and unbecoming of the Fabian name, established by his ancestors' victories in pitched battles.
Political opposition
Fabius's strategy, though a military success, was a political failure. His indirect policies, while tolerable among wiser minds in the Roman Senate, were deemed unpopular, because the Romans had been long accustomed to facing and besting their enemies directly in the field of battle. The Fabian strategy was in part ruined because of a lack of unity in the command of the Roman army. The magister equitum, Marcus Minucius Rufus, a political enemy of Fabius, is famously quoted exclaiming,

    Are we come here to see our allies butchered, and their property burned, as a spectacle to be enjoyed? And if we are not moved with shame on account of any others, are we not on account of these citizens... a Carthaginian foreigner, who was advanced even this far from the remotest limits of the world, through our dilatoriness and inactivity?

As the memory of the shock of Hannibal's victories grew dimmer, the Roman populace gradually started to question the wisdom of the Fabian strategy, the very thing which had allowed them the time to recover. It was especially frustrating to the mass of the people, who were eager to see a quick conclusion to the war. Moreover, it was widely believed that if Hannibal continued plundering Italy unopposed, the terrified allies, believing that Rome was incapable of protecting them, might defect and pledge their allegiance to the Carthaginians. Since Fabius won no large-scale victories, the Roman Senate removed him from command. Their chosen replacement, Gaius Terentius Varro, led the Roman army into the debacle at the Battle of Cannae. The Romans, after experiencing this catastrophic defeat and losing countless other battles, had at this point learned their lesson. They utilized the strategies Fabius had taught them, and which, they finally realized, were the only feasible means of driving Hannibal from Italy.
This strategy of attrition earned Fabius the cognomen "Cunctator" (the Delayer).
Later Usage
Though at first it proved a political disaster for Fabius, eventually the Fabian strategy proved itself.
The strategy was used by the medieval French general Bertrand du Guesclin during the Hundred Years' War against the English following a series of disastrous defeats in pitched battles against Edward, the Black Prince. Eventually du Guesclin was able to recover most of the territory that had been lost.
The most noted use of Fabian strategy in American history was by George Washington, sometimes called the "American Fabius" for his use of the strategy during the first year of the American Revolutionary War. While Washington had initially pushed for traditional direct engagements and victories, he was convinced of the merits of using his army to harass the British rather than engage them both by the urging of his generals in his councils of war, and by the pitched-battle disasters of 1776, especially the Battle of Long Island. In addition, with a history as a Colonial officer and having witnessed Indian warfare, Washington knew this style would aid in defeating the traditional battle styles of the British Army.
However, as with the original Fabius, Fabian strategy is often more popular in retrospect than at the time. To the troops, it can seem like a cowardly and demoralizing policy of continual retreat. Fabian strategy is sometimes combined with scorched earth tactics that demand sacrifice from civilian populations. Fabian leaders may be perceived as giving up territory without a fight, and since Fabian strategies promise extended war rather than quick victories, they can wear down the will of one's own side as well as the enemy. During the American Revolution, John Adams' dissatisfaction with Washington's conduct of the war led him to declare, "I am sick of Fabian systems in all quarters!"
Later in history Fabian strategy would be employed all over the world. Used against Napoleon’s Grande Armée the Fabian strategy proved to be decisive in the defense of Russia. Sam Houston effectively employed a Fabian defense in the aftermath of the Alamo, using delaying tactics and small-unit harrying against Santa Anna's much larger force, to give time for the Army of Texas to grow into a viable fighting force. When he finally met Santa Ana, on the fields of San Jacinto, Houston chose the time for attack equally well, launching his forces while the Mexican Army was lounging in siesta. The resulting victory ensured the establishment of the Republic of Texas. Houston's detractors were able to see the validity of his delaying tactics, with the victory at San Jacinto, otherwise improbable any other way.
Fabian Socialism
Fabian Socialism, the ideology of the Fabian Society which originated in 1884 and launched the Labour Party in the United Kingdom in 1904, utilizes the same strategy of a "war of attrition" in their aim to bring about a socialist state. The advocation of gradualism distinguished this brand of socialism from those who condone revolutionary action.
In Defense of Abraham Lincoln
“The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.”
- Abraham Lincoln
A social philosophy propounded in England by Hilaire Belloc and G. K. Chesterton in the early part of the twentieth century. Although primarily a political– economic doctrine, it included ideas about art, culture, and spirituality. A version of communitarianism, it was strongly opposed to laissez-faire capitalism, and to centralized collectivism, which it associated with welfare liberalism and state socialism. The core element, elaborated most effectively in Chesterton's writings, was a view of persons as value-orientated, affective agents whose happiness can only be self-determined. This personalist anthropology (admired by several central European phenomenologists) led to an emphasis on social liberty and individual ownership from which the name derives.
Distributism (also known as distributionism or distributivism) is a third-way economic philosophy that developed in England in the early 20th century based upon the principles of Catholic social teaching, especially the teachings of Pope Leo XIII in his encyclical Rerum Novarum and Pope Pius XI in Quadragesimo Anno.
According to distributists, property ownership is a fundamental right and the means of production should be spread as widely as possible among the general populace, rather than being centralized under the control of the state (state socialism) or by an elite of wealthy property owners (laissez-faire capitalism). Distributism therefore advocates a society marked by widespread property ownership and, according to co-operative economist Race Mathews, maintains that such a system is key to bringing about a just social order.
Distributism has often been described as a "third way", in opposition to both socialism and capitalism, which distributists see as equally flawed and exploitive. Thomas Storck argues that "both socialism and capitalism are products of the European Enlightenment and are thus modernizing and anti-traditional forces. In contrast, distributism seeks to subordinate economic activity to human life as a whole, to our spiritual life, our intellectual life, our family life".
Some have seen it more as an aspiration, which has been successfully realised in the short term by commitment to the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity (these being built into financially independent local cooperatives and small family businesses), though proponents also cite such periods as the Middle Ages as examples of the historical long-term viability of distributism. Particularly influential in the development of distributist theory were Catholic authors G. K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc, two of distributism's earliest and strongest proponents.
social credit
Social Credit is an economic philosophy developed by C. H. Douglas (1879–1952), a British engineer, who wrote a book by that name in 1924. Social Credit is described by Douglas as "the policy of a philosophy"; he called his philosophy "practical Christianity". This philosophy is interdisciplinary in nature, encompassing the fields of economics, political science, history, accounting and physics. Assuming the only safe place for power is in many hands, Social Credit is a distributive philosophy, and its policy is to disperse power to individuals. Social Credit philosophy is best summed by Douglas when he said, "Systems were made for men, and not men for systems, and the interest of man which is self-development, is above all systems, whether theological, political or economic."
It was while he was reorganising the work of the RAE during World War I that Douglas noticed that the weekly total costs of goods produced was greater than the sums paid out to workers for wages, salaries and dividends. This seemed to contradict the theory put forth by classic Ricardian economics, that all costs are distributed simultaneously as purchasing power. Troubled by the seeming disconnect between the way money flowed and the objectives of industry ("delivery of goods and services", in his view), Douglas set out to apply engineering methods to the economic system.
Douglas collected data from over a hundred large British businesses and found that in every case, except that of companies heading for bankruptcy, the sums paid out in salaries, wages and dividends were always less than the total costs of goods and services produced each week: the workers were not paid enough to buy back what they had made. He published his observations and conclusions in an article in the English Review where he suggested: "That we are living under a system of accountancy which renders the delivery of the nation's goods and services to itself a technical impossibility." He later formalized this observation in his A+B theorem. The theorem divides a company's payments into two categories: A = income, and B = payments to other organizations. Prices equal A+B, but income only equals A in any cycle of production. Since income (A) is always less than total prices (A+B), he believed the theorem demonstrated that people's income is always insufficient to buy back all of production: the consequence of which is ever increasing debt.
Douglas proposed to eliminate this gap between total prices and total incomes by augmenting consumers' purchasing power through a National Dividend and compensated price mechanism. According to Douglas, the true purpose of production is consumption, and production must serve the genuine, freely expressed interests of consumers. Each citizen is to have a beneficial, not direct, inheritance in the communal capital conferred by complete and dynamic access to the fruits of industry (consumer goods) assured by the National Dividend and Compensated Price. Consumers, fully provided with adequate purchasing power, will establish the policy of production through exercise of their monetary vote. In this view, the term economic democracy does not mean worker control of industry. Removing the policy of production from banking institutions, government, and industry, Social Credit envisages an "aristocracy of producers, serving and accredited by a democracy of consumers."
The policy proposals of Social Credit attracted widespread interest in the decades between the world wars of the twentieth century because of their relevance to economic conditions of the time. Douglas called attention to the excess of production capacity over consumer purchasing power, an observation that was also made by John Maynard Keynes in his book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. While Douglas shared some of Keynes' criticisms of classical economics, his unique remedies were disputed and even rejected by most economists and bankers of the time. Remnants of Social Credit still exist within Social Credit parties throughout the world, but not in the purest form originally advanced by Major C. H. Douglas.

Issue number 1 of the relaunched The New Age May 2nd 1907
The New Age
The New Age was a British literary magazine, noted for its wide influence under the editorship of A. R. Orage from 1907 to 1922. It began life in 1894 as a publication of the Christian Socialist movement; but in 1907 as a radical weekly edited by Joseph Clayton, it was struggling. In May of that year, Alfred Orage and Holbrook Jackson, who had been running the Leeds Arts Club, took over the journal with financial help from George Bernard Shaw. Jackson acted as co-editor only for the first year, after which Orage edited it alone until he sold it in 1922. By that time his interests had moved towards mysticism, and the quality and circulation of the journal had declined. According to a Brown University press release, "The New Age helped to shape modernism in literature and the arts from 1907 to 1922". It ceased publication in 1938. Orage was also associated with the New English Weekly (1932–49) as editor during its first two years of operation (Philip Mairet took over at his death in 1934).
The magazine was founded as a Journal of Christian liberalism and Socialism. Orage and Jackson re-oriented it to promote the ideas of Nietzsche, Fabian socialism and later a form of Guild socialism. Opposing viewpoints and arguments were put forward in The New Age, even on issues upon which Orage had strong opinions. Topics covered in detail were: the role of private property in a debate between H. G. Wells and Shaw against G. K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc; the need for a socialist party (distinct from the newly-formed Labour Party); and women's suffrage. On this last point, the editorial line moved from initial support to bitter opposition by 1912. As The New Age moved away from Fabian politics, the leaders of the Fabian Society, Beatrice and Sydney Webb founded the journal The New Statesman to counter its effect in 1913, and this combined with the growing distance between Orage and the mainstream left reduced its influence. By then, the editorial line supported Guild socialism, expounded in articles by G. D. H. Cole and S. G. Hobson among others. After World War I Orage began to support the Social Credit theory of C. H. Douglas.
The New Age was also preoccupied with the definition and development of Modernism in the visual arts, literature and music, and consistently observed, reviewed and contributed to the activities of the movement. The journal was also one of the first places in England in which Sigmund Freud's ideas were discussed before the First World War, in particular by David Eder, an early British psychoanalyst.
The journal appeared weekly, and featured a wide cross-section of writers with an interest in literature and the arts, but also politics, spiritualism and economics.
With its woodprint illustrations reminiscent of artwork by the German Expressionists, its mixture of culture, politics, Nietzschean philosophy and spiritualism, and its non-standard appearance, The New Age has been cited as the English equivalent of the German Expressionist periodical Der Sturm, a journal to which it bore a striking resemblance.

Orage, A. R. (editor)
London: The New Age Press, 1907 / 1922

The New Age was a weekly magazine, printed in double columns, folio sized, and mostly in type sizes that varied from small to miniscule. A rather different journal had been appearing under that name when a group led by G. B. Shaw decided to provide some funding and asked A. R. Orage and his friend Holbrook Jackson to begin a "New Series" in the spring of 1907. From then on, volumes ran for six months, with pages numbered accordingly. Among the notable contributors were Katherine Mansfield, Ezra Pound, Beatrice Hastings, T. E. Hulme, Walter Sickert, Marmaduke Pickthall, and Herbert Read. The magazine played a central role in the debates over modernism and in the social and political issues of the day. The New Age continued for some years after Orage resigned, but is not of comparable interest.

Jack London's The Iron Heel (1907) - the oligarchy has not changed
Read Iron Heel here:

You can get a doctorate in sociology from any Ivy League School and still not understand American society today as well as Jack London already knew it in 1907.
If I was teaching a history of the United States or a sociological study of American society I would begin with this book - and perhaps end with it.
So accurate it is very depressing. All of this was seen by a great and famous writer back in 1907 yet today people throw away the best years of their lives trying to penetrate the wall of Oligarchy propaganda.
So descriptive of our times and the futility of our situation under the "iron heel" - read and weep and marvel that Jack London understood all of this and yet this book is virtually unknown to the American people - while Catcher in the Rye is still being forced on today's college students. Our colleges are exactly what London told us they are. Every fact of our times vindicates the message of this book.
In 1943, during World War II, they were making movies about great Americans. Jack London had a "Liberty Ship" named after him and they made a movie about his life. You can watch it here  -- but notice that in the beginning of the movie they show a line of Jack London's books. They are all there -- White Fang, The Star Rover, Call of the Wild, South Sea Tales and all of the others EXCEPT ONE - you will not see The Iron Heel among those books. Listen to these excerpts and you will know why.
The School of Cooperative Individualism
Henry George and George Bernard Shaw

This paper deals with the differing social philosophies of Henry George and George Bernard Shaw.
George became world-famous in 1879 after having written Progress and Poverty wherein he contended that poverty and other social ills are caused by the denial to most people of access to privately-owned superior land sites. George proposed as his "Remedy" a Single Tax on land values (in the form of rent collection by the community), which would compel the relinquishing of gigantic land holdings, and thus lead to unlimited production and equitable distribution of wealth. He also advocated the abolition of all other taxes.
In 1882, George toured Great Britain, presenting his theories to enthusiastic listeners, one of whom was the young Shaw. The latter, under the spell of George's eloquent oratory, became a Georgist, but soon, after reading Karl Marx's Das Kapital, he turned to Marxism. Eventually, Shaw discarded the ideas of both George and Marx, and termed himself a Fabian (evolutionary) Socialist. Still later, he converted once more, proudly "shouting" that he was a Communist. George, on the other hand, (even though some people have so designated him) was not a Socialist.
(It is necessary, at the start, to note that Shaw had never met George; it is not even certain whether George was ever aware of Shaw's existence.)
To understand the views of George and Shaw, it is important to present a topical analysis. The first topic discussed in this paper is poverty. Both writers emphatically declared that poverty was a scourge which had to be eliminated. George and Shaw, likewise, were much angered by the general public's complacent acceptance of poverty as the will of God, each of them calling such attribution "blasphemy."
From this point on, the Georgist and the Shavian doctrines are in sharp opposition to each other.
Concerning the cause of poverty, George found it (as mentioned above) in the denial of access to valuable land. His "Remedy" was designed to free monopolized land for production; and the abolition of all other taxes was to be another spur to economic growth. Capital, being a factor of production, would not be taxed.
Disputing George's proposal, Shaw declared that poverty is caused by the joint monopoly of land and capital, For his solution, therefore, he urged the collection, not only of rent, but of the return to capital (interest) as well. All income had to be confiscated by the State, and redistributed "according to need."
A further argument involved Ricardo's Law of Rent. Both Georgists and Socialists, even though their ideas were diametrically opposed to each other, claimed' "descent" from the same source, Ricardo's theory, which demonstrated that rent increases at the expense of both capital and labor. George found in Ricardo's law a ready-made formula (and justification for his own "Remedy.") All that was needed, he stated, was merely to funnel rent from private appropriation into a communal fund. No other levy was necessary or desired.
Shaw disagreed. To him, the collection of rent (even though it was "the economic keystone of Socialism") was only the first step toward total appropriation by the State. The main object of Socialism, he stressed, was the collection of all revenues and the imposition of an all-powerful (Socialist) State.
Another controversy involved the Physiocrats. George had designated them to be the predecessors of his own ideology, and honored them for the promulgation of the Single Tax. Shaw ridiculed both the Physiocrats and George, and lavishly praised Voltaire for allegedly "killing" the Single Tax proposal. (It appears to the writer of this paper, however, that Voltaire's story, strongly endorsed by Shaw, is arbitrarily contrived and completely frivolous. It has no merit in reality.)
A final, important theme is that of free enterprise versus Socialism/Communism. George championed Liberty, individual worth, untrammeled' production and limited government. Toward the end of his life, he cast a resolute vote against Socialism.
Contrariwise, Shaw extolled the Superman, dictatorship, Communism, and the totalitarian State. Toward the end of his life, he cast a contemptuous vote against democracy.
This, very briefly, is a review of the two conflicting philosophies. The dispute between them rages to this day.

American sociologist and political polemicist C. Wright Mills (1916-1962) argued that the academic elite has a moral duty to lead the way to a better society by actively indoctrinating the masses with values.

On Aug. 28, 1916, C. Wright Mills was born in Waco, Tex. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Texas and his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin in 1941. Subsequently, he taught sociology at the University of Maryland and Columbia University and during his academic career received a Guggenheim fellowship and a Fulbright grant. At his death, Mills was professor of sociology at Columbia.
Mills has been described as a "volcanic eminence" in the academic world and as "one of the most controversial figures in American social science." He considered himself, and was so considered by his colleagues, as a rebel against the "academic establishment." Mills was probably influenced very much in his rebellious attitude by the treatment his doctoral mentor, Edward Allsworth Ross, had received at Stanford. Ross was fired from Stanford in 1900, largely, it is thought, because he urged immigration laws against bringing Chinese coolies into America to work on railroad building. (Stanford was funded primarily by monies from a railroad which employed such labor.) The firing of Ross spurred the movement for academic freedom in the United States under the leadership of E.R.A. Seligman of Columbia University. Ross then went on to Wisconsin, where, together with John R. Gillin, he built up one of the broadest sociology departments in the nation and where Mills was one of his early doctoral students.
Mills emerged as an acid critic of the so-called military-industrial complex and was one of the earliest leaders of the New Left political movement of the 1960s. Against the overwhelming number of academic studies, Mills insisted - and this is the central thesis of virtually all of his works - that there is a concentration of political power in the hands of a small group of military and business leaders which he termed the "power elite." Essentially, what he proposes as a cure for this immoral situation is that this power be transferred to an academic elite, a group of social scientists who think as Mills does.
As to how the power is to be transferred, Mills is not too clear, as he died before he was able to complete a final synthesis of his thought. In general, he maintains that the academic elite already wields the power but that it is subservient to a corrupt military-industrial complex which it unthinkingly serves simply because it is the going system, the establishment. The task, then, is to convert the academic elite through moral suasion or a kind of "theological preaching," as one sympathetic critic has commented. A major reason why the academic elite unwittingly serves this complex is the elite's behavioral approach, its commitment to value-free social science. In the past, conservatives have attacked the academic intelligentsia on the same grounds, that it has been immoral not to inculcate moral values.
Now Mills and the New Left made the same criticism, although in the interest of rather different moral values. Mills and his followers argued that the so-called value-free commitment to analyze "what is," that is, the existing system, automatically buttresses that system and - since the system is wrong - is thus immoral. In a sense, then, as one commentator has observed, what Mills's program amounts to is: "Intellectuals of the world, unite!"
Mills's analysis of political influence has received a much more favorable response. Mills, like a number of other, earlier writers, as far back as Plato and as recent as Walter Lippmann, perceptively pointed out that eminence in one field is quickly transformed into political influence, especially in a democracy, where public opinion is so crucial. Thus, movie stars, sports stars, and famous doctors use their fame to secure elections or political followings. However, there is no rational basis for this, since competence is related to function. If one functions as a film actor or doctor, that does not mean that he has political wisdom. Mills thus advocated his social science elite to replace such corrupt manifestations of the existing system, thereby calling into question many of the fundamental assumptions of democracy. He advocated a community of social scientists, similar to Plato's philosopher-kings, throughout the world, but especially in the United States, and this elite would wield power through knowledge.
Further Reading
For a sympathetic assessment of Mills see the work by the American Marxist theoretician Herbert Aptheker, The World of C. Wright Mills (1960), and Irving L. Horowitz, ed., The New Sociology: Essays in the Social Science and Social Theory in Honor of C. Wright Mills (1964). Criticism of Mills is in Daniel Bell, The End of Ideology (1960; new rev. ed. 1961); various works by Robert Dahl, particularly Who Governs? (1961); and Raymond A. Bauer and others, American Business and Public Policy: The Politics of Foreign Trade (1963).
Watergate Plus Forty

‘Our Divided Political Heart’ by E.J. Dionne
When it comes to politics today there is perhaps only one thing Americans, regardless of party, can agree on: We’re all disappointed, aggravated, and irritable. The right detects a creeping, un-American “socialism” that embraces elitist technocrats and wants to recklessly redistribute citizens’ hard earned money to the country’s losers. The left sees the Tea Party as an ill-informed confederacy of fanatical dunces.
In “Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent,” political commentator E.J. Dionne Jr. urges us to accept the philosophical foundations of these differences as our patrimony. Dionne argues that American greatness developed from longstanding, dynamic tensions between liberalism and conservatism, values that “animate the consciousness and consciences of nearly all Americans.” We’ve forgotten that the country emerged from these competing political and moral perspectives, and this amnesia goes a long way toward explaining our acidulous politics, where “compromise becomes not a desirable expedient but ‘almost treasonous.’"  
“Our Divided Political Heart” isn’t innovative by any means — what legitimate history doesn’t emphasize our contentious political origins? — but the book is a well-mannered, thoughtful attempt to restore civic grace and productive political conversation.
Contemporary politics functions through appeals to history — a policy either is or isn’t considered part of the American tradition — but such appeals are increasingly made with little regard for factual accuracy. Since history has become the political trump card, Dionne writes, “we should look toward an authentic past, not an invented one.” The right, and the Tea Party in particular, applies a murky, ideological filter to American history. The balance of “Our Divided Political Heart” details these deeply felt errors.
Starting with the Founders, Dionne shows a “balance” of liberal and conservative philosophies as the historical norm. “[T]he best way to understand the core American philosophy at the time of the Revolution and the Founding,” he argues, “is to see it as both liberal and republican — in our terms, both individualistic and communitarian.”
This is anathema to Tea Partiers, of course, who view our liberal tradition as a persistent infection in the body politic. Dionne disposes of such shortsightedness by efficiently and clearly moving through a series of historical moments over the past 200 years. From the competing political positions of the Federalist papers and the Supreme Court’s stewardship of liberal principles to Bush’s compassionate conservatism, an attempt to reclaim the mantle of community from the communitarian language of Clinton-era Democrats, Dionne skewers the Tea Party’s historical fantasies with a robust genealogy of American liberalism.
Dionne correctly sees the Tea Party as radicalizing the rhetoric and posturing of the right, but he admits there’s nothing terribly novel about the group’s chicken-little nostalgia. Every decade or so we endure a surge of conservative anxiety about dispossession, which is at heart what motivates the Tea Party’s isolationist, nativist ideas. 
Nonetheless, Dionne laments what he sees as a Republican Party moving away from its onetime, legitimate concern with community. “What needs to be recognized,” Dionne argues, “is how far Republicanism and conservatism have strayed from their own history and their own past commitments . . . They have done so by jettisoning their communitarian commitments, by adopting a highly restrictive view of the federal government’s role, and by advancing . . . a view of the Constitution that would prohibit or restrict activities that the federal government has undertaken for a century or more.” This is, of course, an allusion to New Deal and Great Society programs such as Social Security and Medicare and laws offering protections to unions and workers and regulating financial entities and markets.
Bush’s compassionate conservatism was, for Dionne, the most recent, perhaps last, gesture of politically viable conservative communitarianism; even Bush’s modest social programs would be reviled by many Republicans if introduced today.
Dionne offers his own balance by critiquing the left. Democrats err, he notes, by forgetting the societal benefits of constructive conservatism. Such benefits include respect for tradition and what Dionne considers a healthy skepticism about humanity’s ability to mold itself according to political desire or personal will for a greater good.
Moreover, Dionne argues that the Democrats need to correct a nettlesome failing: their suspicion of populism. Since the 1950s when politicians like George Wallace used populist rhetoric to serve racist ends, Democrats have distanced themselves from the great majority of populist ideas, forgetting the productive liberal and populist alliances that made the social progress of the Progressive era possible. Now Democrats treat populism as nearly a synonym for bigotry.
Democrats, Dionne argues, need to reclaim populism, initially a “relatively coherent set of egalitarian ideas” that shaped popular discontent and paved the way to removing social, political, and economic inequity. Such a reevaluation would help the Democrats shed the image of heartless social engineers and open space for more reasoned bipartisan conversation.
Without a doubt, Dionne is on thorny terrain throughout. His American history, however correct, will have a hard time dislodging the Tea Party’s self-affirming ideas. The argument that tensions between liberalism and conservatism have been around since the 1770s won’t make an ideologue accept progressive values as innately American. Such narratives merely confirm that this battle has raged since the republic’s founding and that now is the time to end it.

The League of Ordinary Gentlemen
Book Review: The Dangerous Wane of American Communitarianism

No member of the Washington, DC journalism crowd inspires such widespread affection as E.J. Dionne. Meet E.J. and you’ll be charmed—to know him is to love him. It is one of the happy accidents of my life that I can say that from my own experience. Over the years, he has been a boss, a colleague, a mentor, a sparring partner, and a friend. My personal and professional debts will never be repaid—I hardly know how to begin.
Though this means that I am perhaps the worst of all possible reviewers for his new book, Our Divided Political Heart, it also means that I’m vying for that status with plenty of other DC writers. So if you’re looking for impartiality, you might try looking somewhere else—though most reviewers may not be as candid about their bias in E.J.’s favor.
(It’s possible, of course, that this proximity comes with advantages. I worked as E.J.’s assistant at Georgetown during the time that the book began to take shape. The resulting conversations landed me a small mention in the book’s Acknowledgements.)
Fortunately, this disclosure-as-prelude makes a useful starting point for considering Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent. A large part of E.J.’s personal appeal stems from his love of conversation. He is as talented a listener as he is a teacher, and he’s generous with supportive and combative interlocutors alike. Indeed, the book may be best understood as his frustration that political conversations over the nature of the “American Idea” have so universally degenerated into battles. As he notes several times, we can’t have good conversations if everyone’s bunkered down in one of two disparate ideological trenches. 
Conversation depends upon a basic minimum degree of common ground. Without some shared conventions and convictions, we are alien to one another. We become a nation of sappy, wealth-hating socialists on one hand and nostalgic, racist Ayn Rand acolytes on the other. When one side mentions freedom, the other hears “anarchy.” To paraphrase (and slightly adjust) an old line, if our current debates seem to be full of (rhetorically) raised fists, it’s probably because we’ve given up on sharing ideas.
But E.J. is no sappy third-party centrist. Our Divided Political Heart makes a novel analytical case about an increasingly obvious fact: if our politics have become toxically polarized, the American Right is responsible for poisoning the well. This is a newly popular view, thanks to books like Geoffrey Kabaservice’s Rule and Ruin and Thomas E. Mann’s and Norman J. Ornstein’s It’s Even Worse Than It Looks. But why bother reading what everyone knows?
E.J.’s particular angle is as good a reason as any. Kabaservice treats the rise and expansion of Goldwater conservatism in terms of grassroots organizing and institutional maneuvering. Mann and Ornstein “reveal” what Mitch McConnell announced a few years ago: the Republican Party is more interested in scoring political points than in governing. Still others have tried to explain the GOP’s new intransigence in terms of social or cultural nostalgia. E.J.’s book is interesting because it takes a much longer and more compelling view of the situation.
His analysis gets its leverage from the intersection between two sets of axes. Most critiques of radical twenty-first century conservatism stay within the confines of “Right” vs. “Left.” As it turns out, however, the real division in “Our Political Heart” is between individualism and communitarianism. As E.J. puts it: 
    [It] makes a mockery of the American story to deny the power of individualism in our history. But it is just as misleading to ignore our yearnings for a strong common life and our republican quest for civic virtue. Our skepticism of excessive state power arose from religious sources and classical traditions, and so did our doubts about pure individualism. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among those are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Thus began our Founding document. Yet its signers also forged a full-hearted communal bond in defense of those freedoms. “With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,” they declared, “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” Individual liberty and shared sacrifice are the bookends of our Declaration of Independence.
This approach allows E.J. to frame the GOP’s new radicalism as a departure from the American conservative tradition, rather than as a culmination. Historically speaking, the American Right has never been as univocally concerned with radical individualism as Tea Party activists now claim. Measured against conservatives like Alexander Hamilton and Henry Clay, modern conservatism looks like a bizarre exception, rather than the rule. It completely ignores American love of community—a thought that never would have occurred to most American conservatives.
To borrow E.J.’s term, Grover Norquist, the Tea Party, and (most of all) the Koch Brothers have marched American conservatism into opposition to “The Long Consensus” of American politics. For most of the last century—America’s most powerful and prosperous—liberal, progressive, and conservative politicians alike used the organs of government to construct a community fabric that protected individual liberty and encouraged private enterprise. Only recently have conservatives convinced themselves that unregulated capitalism can reliably provide many of the community goods upon which Americans rely.
This shift hasn’t happened in a vacuum, of course. Dionne is deeply critical of the American Left’s weak attempts to provide an alternative to the Tea Party’s view of politics, economics, and the American community. With Thomas Frank, he worries that the Democratic Party is too obsessed with technocratic solutions to bother providing an alternative moral vision to compete with the Right’s—what I’ve called “The Wonky Left Problem.”
If conservatives are to blame for abandoning compromise, community, and conversation, their approach has largely succeeded because leftists have ceded them so much rhetorical turf. Conservatives were able to hijack America’s political conversation because leftists were often disengaged. E.J. puts it this way:
    [T]here is still a great deal of liberal ambivalence about community, and about populism. Any time a liberal uses words such as “flyover country” or “Jesusland,” he or she is breaking faith with a broad democratic tradition that included Bryan no less than Roosevelt. This tradition acknowledges the wisdom that exists in small towns and the countryside no less than the genius of our sophisticated metropolitan areas. It honors the rights and dignity of religious believers and secular people alike. It respects the loyalties of old tightly knit working-class neighborhoods no less than the cosmopolitanism on the more affluent side of town. 
Today’s leftists do not always deign to engage in a conversation with their fellows—which makes it that much easier for conservatives to serve the nation’s elites under the banner of populism.
And this is where the book could go further. Leftists should be better at explaining “that citizens in a free republic need a degree of economic security, independence, and self-sufficiency [in order] to carry out their civic duties and…participate fully in self-government.” Why aren’t they? I’m not confident that I know (though I float some suggestions in the wonky piece linked above), but it seems like the next stage in E.J.’s analysis. If American conservatism has abandoned fully half of the American political tradition, surely the Left should be prepared to speak to those Americans who recognize that something has gone missing. And if leftists are prepared, surely there should be much to say.
But wishes like this are the best sorts of critique—since they implicitly indicate that the book was worth extending. It’s a fantastic book, well worth a read, and E.J.’s the sort of decent, sensible journalist who deserves to be taken more seriously than most—especially if we’d like to improve our political conversations.

On communitarianism
To define the human creature as by nature communitarian is to both oversimplify and to ignore the evidence to the contrary. It would be more accurate to say that the majority, the followers, is naturally communitarian, while a minority, the leaders, are egomaniacal. Recurring efforts to marginalize this segment with such labels as “psychopath“, “sociopath”, or other presudoclinical badges are really little more than an example of sheep passing resolutions in favor of vegetarianism in wolves. They change nothing of the fact that an immensely larger than the average — or “normal” if you will — self-regard, and even hubris, is required to presume that one can and ought to command his fellow Homo sapiens.
Perhaps the most paradoxical trait of followers of divers collectivist, communitarian, and other progressive ideologies — whether they claim origins based on science, revelation or morality — is their propensity to unquestioningly follow leaders, and the greater the logic they claim as their justification, the less they seem to give thought to questions regarding precepts, imitations or empirical outcomes of their beliefs.
Lamentations of the lost togetherness of communitarian gatherings — usually from the mouths of the particularly prostrationist intellectuals — tend to ignore empirical experience with such ecstatic communitarianism: mass martyrdoms and persecutions, iconoclasms and iconovenerations, forced conversions, crusades, jihads, mass suicides, wars of religion. If we desire peace, we must draw the conclusion that peace flows not from subsuming the individual in the community but quite the other way around, as clearly evidenced by the correlated fall in top-down and bottom-up coercion with the rise of individualist ethic. Perhaps this sense of loss arises from their deprivation of the comforts of the ritual, attendant as it is with communal gathering, but we must call to mind that ritual — a set of gestures imbued with a desire for magical results — is really a reflection of the powerlessness, the fear, in the face of the unknown and the great, and as such makes little sense in our, today’s, society, now that it we are capable of getting closer to understanding the cosmos’s inner workings.

The Myth of Sisyphus
The Myth of Sisyphus is a philosophical essay by Albert Camus. It comprises about 120 pages and was published originally in 1942 in French as Le Mythe de Sisyphe; the English translation by Justin O'Brien followed in 1955.
In the essay, Camus introduces his philosophy of the absurd: man's futile search for meaning, unity, and clarity in the face of an unintelligible world devoid of God and eternal truths or values. Does the realization of the absurd require suicide? Camus answers: "No. It requires revolt." He then outlines several approaches to the absurd life. The final chapter compares the absurdity of man's life with the situation of Sisyphus, a figure of Greek mythology who was condemned to repeat forever the same meaningless task of pushing a boulder up a mountain, only to see it roll down again. The essay concludes, "The struggle itself [...] is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy."
The work can be seen in relation to other absurdist works by Camus: the novel The Stranger (1942), the plays The Misunderstanding (1942) and Caligula, and especially the essay The Rebel (1951).

The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus
The Pied-Noir relationship with France and Algeria was marked by alienation. The settlers considered themselves French, but many of the Pieds-Noirs had a tenuous connection to mainland France, which 28 percent of them had never visited. The settlers encompassed a range of socioeconomic strata, ranging from peasants to large landowners, the latter of whom were referred to as grands colons.
In Algeria, the Muslims were not considered French and did not share the same political or economic benefits. For example, the indigenous population did not own most of the settlements, farms, or businesses, although they numbered nearly 9 million (versus roughly one million Pieds-Noirs) at independence. Politically, the Muslim Algerians had no representation in the Algerian National Assembly and wielded limited influence in local governance. To obtain citizenship, they were required to renounce their Muslim identity. Since this would constitute apostasy, only about 2,500 Muslims acquired citizenship before 1930. The settlers' politically and economically dominant position worsened relations between the two groups.

An Algerian Jew
Sephardic Jewish community
Jews were present in North Africa and Iberia for centuries, some since the time when "Phoenicians and Hebrews, engaged in maritime commerce, founded Hippo Regius (current Annaba), Tipasa, Caesarea (current Cherchel), and Icosium (current Algiers)." A tradition told they arrived from Judea after the First Jewish-Roman War (66–73 AD) while it is known historically many Sephardi Jews came following the Spanish Reconquista. In 1870, Justice Minister Adolphe Crémieux wrote a proposal, décret Crémieux, giving French citizenship to Algerian Jews. Thus, the Jews of Algeria came to be considered part of the Pied-Noir community. This advancement was resisted by part of the larger Pied-Noir community. In 1897 a wave of anti-Semitic riots occurred in Algeria. During World War II the décret Crémieux was abolished under the Vichy regime, and Jews were barred from professional jobs. Citizenship was restored in 1943. Many Jews fled the country in 1962, alongside most other Pieds-Noirs, after the Algerian War.

You Remember
1940s / Winston Churchill Machine Gun Photo
On July 31, 1940, British prime minister Winston Churchill visited the coastal defenses near Hartlepool, England during the bleakest period of the Battle of Britain. During his inspection of the troops, he was photographed holding a machine gun (or tommy gun as the Brits call it). The British press thought the photo was unflattering and it got little attention. However, the Germans obtained a copy and thought it had potential as anti-Churchill propaganda. They equated the photo with lawless American gangsters and used it to create a leaflet. Thousands of copies of this photo, bearing the caption 'Wanted for Incitement to Murder,' were dropped over London in an attempt to portray Churchill in a negative light. It didn't work. Far from being offended, the Londoners loved the image of their gun-toting PM. Thus the German propaganda leaflet had the opposite effect from what had been intended. It became a prized possession for Londoners.

Bikes, Trees, Cafes? Outrageous Instant Community Transformation in Texas
Guerilla Urbanism
This is one of the most joyful, funny and uplifting presentations we have ever posted on Nextworldtv. Here is someone who will revitalize your spirit as much as he revitalized his town.
Arts activist Jason Roberts will have everybody rethinking what is possible in their communities after watching this video. He lives in Oak Cliff, near Dallas TX. He's responsible for some of the most outrageous initiatives, going out of his way to break every ordinance in a neighborhood in order to show people, just for one weekend, what kind of transformation is possible.
On a desolate, depressing Texas street that for the last 70 years has only had cars and traffic in mind, he painted on his own bike lanes. He created outdoor seating areas. He set up trees and plantings just for the weekend. Instant cafes and arts centers were created.
The message in his enthusiastic talk is not just about what a great time they had with these radical techniques to get people to rethink a city space, and turn it back into being about and for people. What surprised even him was the unbelievable level of support and response he got -- and how many joined his bandwagon and remain committed to a new vision that is possible.
It's a ground swell. This is how you get things going folks!

UN Agenda 21, and who appointed YOU the NEW GODS??


The very ‘humans’ who have gained their immense wealth and power through the centuries from the sweat and toil of others, and who have arranged the world to steal anything they want without lifting a finger, are the same ones who have appointed themselves as the new God’s of the universe.  These carnival barkers actually believe they have the final word on who, and how many humans belong on this planet!!  Of course, we have yet to see any of them step up and volunteer to be an example to the rest of us in their zealotry to demonize “the earth’s human plague”, and actually help reduce the world’s population!!
Any critically thinking person would be looking over their shoulder for the white coats to take us away in straightjackets if WE went around spouting the very same ludicrous nonsense they have come up with.  Global warming has turned into climate change??  Now there’s something you can’t argue with!!  It’s why weather reports were invented!  I suppose that the sky being blue will be the next ‘proof’ that ‘we’ are causing the moon to exit the universe.
The hysterical and rabid environmental ‘Gods’ seem to have been blessed with crystal balls and know exactly how the earth is going to behave, and what the weather will be 75 years from now.   What they’ve done is create a casino where they can take bets on what the temperature will be tomorrow, or on any given day in the year 2062, while they control the temperatures with their chemicals dispersed in the sky and electronic toys (HAARP).
One doesn’t even need to look beneath the surface or read between the lines, to see the gigantic lies, blatant deceptions, and the insanity of it all.  You have to think that trying to pull off this grand scheme, and how voraciously absurd it is, is part of the rush they are thoroughly enjoying, while they madly jerk on their multitude of puppet strings.  The mind drifts easily to the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain, after they’ve led the gullible masses down the green brick road.
We can only imagine how far these ‘people’ need to go to get any kind of stimulation out of life.  When you have destroyed every moral code possible, committed every kind of crime, violated every local and global law, indulged in all manner of unspeakable human abuses, what is left??  What could they think of next in their search for a thrill??   This is where it gets very damn scary!  This is where the self-appointed New Gods provide the proof that they are indeed the devil in disguise, and so mentally ill they don’t fit any framework for even the most gifted psychiatrist to classify.
I wonder.  Have you given any thought at all to the up front and in your face hypocrisy they have put on the plate for you to consume??   Or the brutality with which they demand that we obey?  Their ruthlessness is the giveaway that will tell you who you are dealing with.
 Electric utilities are shutting off power to elderly people who do not want Smart Meters!!  “We will install this dangerous device on your home, even though it’s not UL approved, no matter how sick you are”!   “And if you are sick, you’ll pay through the nose to keep your old meter, you sucker”!
Think about these items from very small, to beyond all comprehension, when you hear their buzzwords the next time. On second thought, they have realized the world is waking up and have drawn up new buzzwords for their agenda, but here are the ones you are catching onto and are sick of already:
From now on, The Gods say humans must be limited to sustainable activities and energy use. Yet they control the corporations that make terminator crop seeds that must be purchased every season, and create laws that make saving/storing seeds (sustainable) illegal.  It doesn’t matter if nature ruins an entire crop, or the farmer commits suicide because he has no money for the next season’s planting.  And it doesn’t matter if their concoctions fail by the thousands of acres, or that increasing tons of additional pesticides and herbicides must be used each year to control the unintended consequences created by GMO crop planting.   One thing is for sure.  We know that Monsanto’s Round-Up is as efficient as cyanide for killing yourself and destroying animal and insect species.  Killing vast bee colonies that pollinate a huge segment of our food supply is oh-so sustainable!  And when the scientists get close to proving who or what is responsible for bee colony collapse, the suspected responsible party (starts with an ‘M’) buys up that research facility to silence the truth.
It’s also very sustainable for our fuel supplies to prohibit from the American auto market, cars that are available to Europeans that get 78 MPG.  Their answer is that they are “protecting the US economy”.  VW and even Ford build them right here in the US, but we can’t have them!

 Can’t (Or At Least Shouldn’t) Buy

Get Mind Smart
  see the bigger picture

Getting mind smart means
 Self-mastery and self-autonomy – the essence of humanity
 Reclaiming the meaning of ‘smart’
 An endeavour to overstand the new meanings
 Keeping the matrix a tool for the people, rather than making us mere tools of the matrix
 Not being a ghost in the machine
 Taking responsibility for your own mind, not leaving ownership of knowledge to the experts
 Questioning what you’re told, reaching your own conclusions
 Detecting fallacies
 Being master of yourself, thinking holographically, for we are multi-dimensional beings
 Keeping it real, not slipping into the illusory world of the matrix
 Sovereignty of the self, not being lost to the collective
 Making the best of what we have: using ‘their’ own tactics to ‘our’ advantage
 Trying to be even smarter tomorrow
 Remaining humble
Why get mind smart?
-          Because it’s not their world
-           the world is becoming fully connected and AI is getting real smart – able to think and decide, even on issues of law and governance
-          It’s no longer the stuff of science fiction
-          The new meaning of smart is communitarian: a way of life, a state of mind – it begins with standardization and progresses to picking out the best
-          The new smart leaves no room for human imperfection – machines do it better
-          Because the Fordism of knowledge – the extra-specialised specialists telling us what’s what - leaves only the global governors in control of the bigger picture
-          The corporations don’t care about people + planet; they are not humans and can’t be trusted
-          And because we all have a say in this – it’s not a game.


Getting mind smart is about - 
Knowing what’s already happened, and protecting that knowledge for future history-seekers – download and save the information, print out hard copies, talk to people.
Practicing autonomy and autodidacticism – be master of yourself and your search for knowledge. Be your own expert.
Follow the money (corporations, foundations, investors), the law, and the technology: the future is smart and we’ve got to be smarter.
Global policies are built on fallacies – shifting sands that hold no water. Study the trivium to rise above them. Contact key people about your concerns – explain the fallacies to them.
Words and concepts have been twisted: ‘sustainable’ now means ‘a tiny bit eco-friendly’ rather than truly lasting. ‘Ethics’ has been co-opted to define a narrow set of ideological preferences. Reclaim the meanings.
‘Ludology’ is the study of games/game theory; learn about this to outwit the ones who design and control the rules - stay ahead of the game.

What is Sustainable Development?

Environmental, economic and social well-being for today and tomorrow

Sustainable development has been defined in many ways, but the most frequently quoted definition is from Our Common Future, also known as the Brundtland Report:[1]
"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts:
  • the concept of needs, in particular the essential needs of the world's poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and
  • the idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment's ability to meet present and future needs."

All definitions of sustainable development require that we see the world as a system—a system that connects space; and a system that connects time.

When you think of the world as a system over space, you grow to understand that air pollution from North America affects air quality in Asia, and that pesticides sprayed in Argentina could harm fish stocks off the coast of Australia.

And when you think of the world as a system over time, you start to realize that the decisions our grandparents made about how to farm the land continue to affect agricultural practice today; and the economic policies we endorse today will have an impact on urban poverty when our children are adults.

We also understand that quality of life is a system, too. It's good to be physically healthy, but what if you are poor and don't have access to education? It's good to have a secure income, but what if the air in your part of the world is unclean? And it's good to have freedom of religious expression, but what if you can't feed your family?

The concept of sustainable development is rooted in this sort of systems thinking. It helps us understand ourselves and our world. The problems we face are complex and serious—and we can't address them in the same way we created them. But we can address them.

It's that basic optimism that motivates IISD's staff, associates and board to innovate for a healthy and meaningful future for this planet and its inhabitants.

Following the offer of the New Bible we want in the following open letter to the General Synod to express our concern about the decision taken will be to this translation, whether or not rising to pulpit Bible. We want the synod should be made aware that such a decision the heart of the Christian community becomes and therefore not could be dispensed to the theological decisions of such a Bible based. Because in circles around the Synod already enthusiastically responding to this translation, we believe that this heart cry on our part is necessary. We sincerely hope that you by return this letter by 27 October signing and signature forward to fellow ministers and officials possibly within the context of this call our churches to strengthen it. Please email to: or writing to: open letter NBV, c / o Princess Irene Street 36, 1077 WX Amsterdam.

Talk back to your doctor
By Amitai Etzioni, Special to CNN

Editor's note: Amitai Etzioni is professor of international relations and director of the Institute for Communitarian Policy Studies at George Washington University.

(CNN) -- If you are reluctant to challenge your physician on a certain procedure or medicine, you are hardly alone. Focus groups show that many patients feel intimidated by their doctors. They're reluctant to take an active role in discussing their care because they're afraid that the doctor will see them as "difficult."
Recently, nine medical associations each took the unusual step of listing five medical procedures commonly used in their fields that patients don't need, amounting to 45 tests or procedures. The associations report some of them might actually be harmful. Eight medical associations have signed on to release additional lists in the fall.
An annual EKG is an example of one test you can do without, unless family history or symptoms suggest otherwise. Some procedures, such as repeated abdominal CT scans without a significant change in the patient's condition, subject patients to a relatively high dose of radiation and can increase their cancer risk.

Bolivian President Evo Morales’ 10 commandments to save the planet, life and humanity

First: a call to end the capitalist system. The capitalist system was inhuman and encouraged unbridled economic development. The exploitation of human beings and pillaging of natural resources must end, as should wars aimed at securing access to those resources. Also, the world should end the plundering of fossil fuels; excessive consumption of goods; the accumulation of waste; as well as the egoism, regionalism and thirst for earning where the pursuit of luxury was taking place at the expense of human beings. Countries of the south were heaped with external debt, when it was the ecological debt that needed paying.

Second, the world should denounce war, which brought advantage to a small few, he said. In that vein, it was time to end occupation under the pretext of "combating drugs", such as in South America, as well as other pretexts such as searching for weapons of mass destruction. Money earmarked for war should be channeled to make reparations for damage caused to the Earth.

Third, there should be a world without imperialism, he said, where no country was dependent upon or subordinate to another. States must look for complementarity rather than engage in unfair competition with each other. Member States of the United Nations should consider the asymmetry that exists among nations and seek a way to lessen deep economic differences. Moving along those lines, he said the Security Council — with its lifelong members holding veto rights — should be democratized.

Fourth, he said access to water should be treated as a human right, and policies allowing the privatization of water should be banned. Indigenous peoples had a long experience of mobilizing themselves to uphold the right to water. He proposed that they put forth the idea of forming an international convention on water to guarantee it as a human right and to protect against its appropriation by a select few.

Fifth, he said the world should promote clean and eco-friendly energies, as well as end the wasteful use of energy. He said it was understood that fossil fuels were nearing depletion, yet those who promoted biofuels in their place were making "a serious mistake". It was not right to set aside land not for the benefit of human beings, but so that a small few could operate luxurious vehicles. It was also because of biofuels that the price of rice and bread has risen; and the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were now warning that such policies must be prevented. The world should explore more sustainable forms of alternative energy, such as geothermal, solar, wind and hydro-electric power.

Sixth, he said there should be more respect for Mother Earth, and the indigenous movement must bring its influence to bear in fostering that attitude. The world must stop thinking of Mother Earth in the capitalist sense — which was that of a raw material to be traded. For who could privatize or hire out his mother?

Seventh, he stressed the importance of gaining access to basic services for all. Services such as education and transport should not be the preserve of private trade.

Eighth, he urged the consumption of only what was necessary and what was produced locally. There was a need to end consumerism, waste and luxury. It was an irony that millions of dollars were being spent to combat obesity in one half of the globe, while the other was dying of hunger. He said the impending food crisis would necessarily bring an end to the free market, where countries suffering hunger were being made to export their food. There was a similar case with oil, where the priority lay in selling it abroad, rather than domestically.

Ninth, he said it was important to promote unity and diversity of economies, and that the indigenous movement should put forth a call for unity and diversity in the spirit of multi-lateralism.

Tenth, the world should live under the tenet of "trying to live well", he said, but not at the expense of others.

The Dangers of Communitarian Justice
There is a real danger about relying on communitarian justice when the state is not able to establish its presence in rural areas. That is the problem that has been highlighted by Bolivia's attempts at relying on communitarian justice in order to complement the weak judicial apparatus in the country.
The Bolivian constitution raises communitarian justice to the same rank as ordinary justice. On the back of ethnic, autonomic and indigenous peoples discourse, now rural dwellers around the country (there where the state is not really present) can claim the use of communitarian justice as an equal alternative to ordinary justice.
This, on one side, stems from the insecurity these dwellers feel because of the lack of presence of police forces. In addition, more often than not, people have to travel long in order to come to the nearest judge.
On the other side, these affinity for communitarian justice stems from the traditional forms of justice some Andean groups have had in the past and still have now. This has become the fundamental argument, within this indigenist discourse, to justify uses of what otherwise would be known as mob justice.
The reason for this post is to highlight an example of what has been happening in Bolivia for some time now.
In the last weeks, the Bolivian statistical institute has been sending people to the rural areas to gather survey data to measure poverty, health, and other things. In the last days, eight of those people were thought to be thieves, kept captured, and almost lynched by the skeptical people in a small town in Cochabamba. The people could be freed after long negotiations with the police and other security forces.
What does this latest example says is that this form of "justice" is not adequate to be a legitimate form of justice. At the most, if anything, it should be incorporated into a conflict solution mechanism.
Bolivia: National Revolution and "Communitarian Socialism"
By Federico Fuentes
During the last two weeks, the Bolivian people have won two significant victories toward implementing their new constitution. On April 9, Evo Morales went on a hunger strike while thousands rallied in the streets to protest the refusal of the Opposition-dominated Senate to ratify constitutional provisions for new elections. A compromise was reached after five days of the strike, and the bill was passed.
Following this event, federal police foiled a plot to murder Morales. Police broke in on a mercenary group who launched a 30-minute gun battle. Three of the right-wing plotters were killed and two arrested. State prosecutor Jorge Gutierrez issued a statement which said the terrorists included men of Croatian and Irish, Romanian, and Hungarian, nationality abetted by members of Bolivia's "far right," including a Bolivian who may have also held Hungarian and Croatian passports, and who fought in separatist movements during the Balkan wars.
This plot comes on the heels of events last September, when, prior to the overwhelming 61% vote on the new constitution, rioters seized state buildings in a battle that took eleven lives. At that time, Morales accused Gov. Ruben Costas of Santa Cruz, of fomenting anti-government violence. A United Nations report found Pres. Morales' political opponents responsible.
At that time, Morales ejected the U.S. ambassador and Drug Enforcement Administration officials who had championed the opposition. He also claimed that the U.S. organized groups to assassinate him. Washington denies those charges.
As the following article from Green Left Weekly reports, the Bolivian struggle for indigenous democracy continues.

Suzanne Weiss

The historic enactment of Bolivia's new constitution that grants unprecedented rights to the country's indigenous majority, approved by over 61% of the vote on January 25, represented the beginning of "communitarian socialism", according to President Evo Morales.
This was not the first time Bolivia's first indigenous president had raised the concept of "communitarian socialism". In his April 2008 speech to the United Nations, Morales spoke of the need for "a communitarian socialism in harmony with Mother Earth".
While Morales's political party is officially known as Movement Towards Socialism–Political Instrument for the Sovereignty of the Peoples (MAS-IPSP), it was originally simply IPSP.
Blocked from registering itself as an electoral party, the IPSP took up the offer of the then-existing MAS party to use its registered name to run in elections.
While individual socialists were involved from the beginning with the IPSP, they were a tiny minority within a party that was formed as a "political instrument" of Bolivia's largest peasant organisations.
Forged through the struggles of the coca growers and the other peasant organisations, against US military intervention and neoliberal policies, the MAS developed a strong anti-imperialist and anti-neoliberal character.
As the social struggles intensified, and the MAS's weight began to grow in the electoral sphere, this political instrument increasingly became an outlet for growing disillusionment with the corrupt traditional party system.
The election of Morales as president in 2005, with a historic 53.7% of the vote, consolidated the MAS as the leadership of a broad-based national liberation movement — in which the peasant and indigenous majority led urban and middle class sectors.
The dominant ideology was a militant indigenous nationalism, whose vision involves promoting the inclusion and empowerment of the indigenous majority.
Since being elected, the Morales government has focused on modernising the country, promoting industrialisation, increasing state intervention in the economy, promoting social and cultural inclusion, and a more democratic distribution of revenue from natural resources through various social programs.
A major achievement has been the successful drafting of a new constitution by an elected constituent assembly — with the draft adopted by referendum — to refound the nation on the basis of justice for the indigenous majority.
In early 2008, Morales began to develop some underlying principles of what "communitarian socialism" might entail, according to sources within and close to the MAS leadership.
Differences, and then the onslaught by the right-wing opposition against the government, put this discussion on the backburner.
However, the crushing defeat of the right-wing attempts to bring down the government in 2008 greatly weakened the power of the opposition.
In this context, the MAS-IPSP held its seventh national congress on January 10-12, where it approved the document "Communitarian socialism to liberate Bolivia from the colonial state".
The document provides a picture of how the MAS views the current revolutionary process and its direction.

Climate Change
Recent climate records show that the world is getting warmer, and that the rise in temperature is taking place with unprecedented speed. Evidence is also mounting that extreme weather events - such as floods, cyclones and droughts - are becoming more commonplace, and more severe.
Though cause and effect are notoriously difficult to prove in climatology, the chief culprit behind global warming is thought to be the build-up of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, arising from the use of coal, oil and gas during the past 200 years.
Businesses are responsible for a large slice of global carbon dioxide emissions. It is not just heavy industries like steelmaking and chemicals that contribute to the 'greenhouse effect', but also the wider commercial sector, which consumes large amounts of energy for lighting, space-heating and transport.
The 1997 Kyoto Protocol committed industrialized nations to reducing their carbon dioxide emissions. Business will need to play its part in delivering these targets, and in helping to stabilize the atmosphere.

History of Pachamamma Raymi
The methodology Pachamama Raymi was developed at the end of the eighties in Peru, in the Rural Development Program PRODERM, financed by the Dutch Foreign Cooperation and the European Union and the Peruvian government. The main intellectual author and promoter of the methodology was Willem van Immerzeel. He introduced and further developed the methodology in Bolivia, Guatemala and Chile, adding new elements, improving others, and adjusting it to specific cultural and institutional realities.
The Pachamama Raymi methodology has demonstrated its scalability showing it can be applied in micro and mega projects. Scaling up was first demonstrated in projects financed by the European Union (from PRODERM, to PAC-II, and ALA 94/89) and later by several IFAD projects (MARENASS, Sierra Sur and others).
Many now ask us about the origins and history of Pachamama Raymi. In this section, we present, document and illustrate it wherever possible.

The Outrageous Racist Hypocrisy of Israel and World Zionism!
Johan Galtung on Jews
Johan Galtung is a prominent Norwegian academic, the founder of the field of peace studies and author of more than 100 books and more than 1000 scholarly papers. He has also been officially labeled an anti-Semite as a result of recent statements, at least some of which are sensible.
Galtung believes that historical anti-Semitism is based at least partly on Jewish behavior: On the rise of anti-Jewish attitudes in Germany during the 1920s, he says that it was “not unproblematic that Jews had key niches in a society humiliated by defeat at Versailles.”
He distinguishes between predicting anti-Jewish behavior and justifying it: “In no way, absolutely no way, does this justify the atrocities. But it created anti-Semitism that could have been predicted.” In the same way, he argues that medieval pogroms were motivated by the role of Jews in usury: “The Jews played a role in demanding payment from indebted peasants.
This of course violates the dogma that all anti-Jewish attitudes and behavior are completely irrational—the result of things like Christian religious ideology or individual psychopathology—rather than reality-based conflicts of interest. In the modern world, Galtung claims that “the Jews control U.S. media, and divert for the sake of Israel.”


Sheldon Adelson: Israel and Immigration’s Patrick Cleburne has a nice article on Sheldon Adelson (“Has Romney Sold Immigration Policy To Sheldon Adelson?“), the billionaire who has emerged as the largest single donor in the current presidential campaign, promising up to $100 million for the Republicans. After supporting Gingrich in the primaries, Adelson has thrown his considerable weight behind Romney. We all know what that money buys: fealty to Israel. Throughout the campaign, Romney and Gingrich competed on who would be more slavish to Israel; Gingrich must have seemed slightly more reliable to Adelson, but Adelson must have been impressed with Romney as well.
There is no question about Adelson’s support for the most racialist and nationalist elements in Israel. Adelson owns an Israeli newspaper that supports PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard right Likud government. And there can be little question of where his loyalties lie. He has stated that he wishes he would have served in the Israeli military rather than in the US Army, and that he wants his son to grow up to “be a sniper for the IDF.”

All we care about is being good Zionists, being good citizens of Israel, because even though I am not Israeli born, Israel is in my heart. … All we care about is being good Zionists, being good citizens of Israel, because even though I am not Israeli born, Israel is in my heart,” he said toward the end of his talk.

I was surprised to read that Senator John McCain, referring explicitly to Adelson, complained that foreign money is entering the US presidential election race. This seemed too good to be true, and it was. It turns out that he was only making the point that a lot of Adelson’s money comes from his casino operations in Macau. What McCain should have been saying loud and clear is that Adelson is for all practical purposes a citizen of Israel with no demonstrated loyalty to the US and that he should not be allowed to influence the US political process.
But he won’t. 
Cleburne’s suggestion that Adelson’s money also buys immigration policy is interesting as well. I am not sure he needs to buy it, except on the issue of illegal immigration—a big issue, but certainly not the heart of the matter. During the primary campaigns, Romney had to fend off charges by Gingrich that he was anti-immigrant.
Romney says that the charge that he is anti-immigrant is “repulsive,” and points out that his father was born in Mexico. He then expresses his support for expanded legal immigration. Romney loves immigrants as long as they’re legal. … Despite the fact that immigrants of all stripes will vote Democrat and, along with the rest of the non-White coalition, make the Republicans irrelevant in the very near future. …
So the two Republicans supposedly trying to appeal to the angry White base of the Party by showing how conservative they are (just what are they conserving?) end up competing over who is more pro-immigration—not to mention their equally insane competition on who is more pro-Israel. (Newt is Sheldon Adelson’s boy, but Romney has actually gotten far more money from Jews than Gingrich; both have surrounded themselves with neocon foreign policy hawks eager to attack Iran). (See here.)
Nevertheless, it’s frustratingly difficult to find what Adelson thinks about immigration policy although, as Cleburne points out, Adelson as a casino-hotel operator in Nevada is a beneficiary of low-wage labor.  Further information provided by commenters would be much appreciated.
But it’s not difficult to make an educated guess. The fact that Romney had already gotten a great deal of support from wealthy Jews is a sure sign that they see him as safe on immigration. Jews have a long record of supporting liberal social issues within the Republican Party, and in at least one area, gay marriage, Jewish Republicans seem at least as interested in social issues as they are in Israel. As John Graham pointed out (“New York Gay Marriage: Follow the Jewish Money”), wealthy Republican Jews have pushed gay marriage (here’s a recent example involving New York Hedge fund operator, Paul Singer (“SuperDonor backs Romney—and Gay Marriage“).
So don’t expect much from Romney on immigration. He wouldn’t be where he is if his liberal Jewish donors believed that he would be seriously anti-immigration.
Debating the Holocaust: A New Look At Both Sides
By Thomas Dalton
For the past few decades there has been raging a kind of subterranean debate, one of monumental importance. It is a debate about the Holocaust -- not whether or not it "happened" (this is a meaningless claim), but rather, HOW it happened, through what MEANS, and to what EXTENT. On the one hand we have the traditional, orthodox view: the six million Jewish casualties, the gas chambers, the cremation ovens and mass graves. On the other hand there is a small, renegade band of writers and researchers who refuse to accept large parts of this story. These revisionists, as they call themselves, present counter-evidence and ask tough questions. Among the issues they raise are these: (1) there is no trace of a 'Hitler order' to exterminate the Jews; (2) key witnesses have either falsified or greatly exaggerated important aspects of their stories; (3) major death camps -- Belzec, Chelmno, Sobibor, and Treblinka -- have all but vanished; (4) we find little evidence of disturbed earth for mass graves; (5) we find few remains of the millions of alleged victims -- neither bones nor ash; (6) mass-gassing with Zyklon-B would be nearly impossible without ventilators and ceiling holes; (7) mass-gassing with diesel engine exhaust is practically impossible, given the low level of carbon monoxide; (8) wartime air photos of Auschwitz show none of the alleged mass-burnings or cremations; (9) the '6 million' number has no basis in fact, and actually traces back decades before the war; (10) trends in Jewish world population strongly suggest less than 6 million lost; and (11) the present number of "survivors" -- currently over 1 million -- implies few wartime deaths. The revisionists arrive at a different account. Hitler, they say, wanted to expel the Jews, not kill them. The ghettos and concentration camps served primarily for ethnic cleansing and forced labor, not mass murder. The Zyklon gas chambers did in fact exist, but were used for delousing and sanitary purposes. And most important, the Jewish death toll was much lower than commonly assumed -- on the order of 500,000. In this book, for the FIRST TIME EVER, the reader can now judge for himself. Arguments and counter-arguments for both sides are presented, and all relevant facts are laid out in a clear and concise manner. The entire debate is presented in a scholarly and non-polemical fashion. Citations are marked, and facts are checked. READ and JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.

Rethinking Hitler & National Socialism

"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."
--George Orwell

I suppose it would eventually come to this: all the reading, investigating, and research I’ve done since discovering the truth about 9/11 would lead to a re-examination and re-learning of much of history, especially the mainstream version of WWI and WWII history. Since I began looking into 9/11, I’ve explored all sorts of “conspiracy theories”, but lately, largely as a result of following the work of Deanna Spingola, ZionCrimeFactory, Carolyn Yeager, Veronica Clark, and others, I’ve began to delve deeper and deeper into revisionist history and what Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP) really stood for. And today I’d like to share some of my thoughts with you about this subject.
I’ve mentioned before that I once bought into Jim Condit, Jr.’s thesis about Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP, namely, that Hitler and many of the top Nazi leaders were either Jews themselves, or puppets of the international bankers and Jewish crime network, operating as part of the bankers controlled opposition in order to facilitate the establishment of the illegitimate, terrorist state of Israel as a safe haven and central headquarters for the global Jewish mafia, in the process fulfilling messianic Jewish prophecy in order to advance what is commonly known as “The New World Order”, whose foundations are laid out in detail in the supremacist Jewish Talmud. However, I’ve always kept an open mind about this and many other subjects, and only recently (i.e., the past six months or so) began to really explore it in greater detail. And I’m now firmly convinced that Condit and others that promote this ridiculous theory about the NSDAP being puppets of the Rothschilds are 100% wrong in their assessment. I’ve concluded that all the other ridiculous theories and outright slanders against Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany are merely attempts to divert people’s attention away from what Hitler and his movement actually stood for, what they represented, what they actually said, and what they actually did. By the way, Deanna Spingola and Veronica Clark refute many of these outlandish theories in a recent interview for those interested.
One thing I want to make clear here: Hitler and the National Socialist movement were most definitely “anti-Semites”, and used “anti-Semitism” in their political propaganda and messaging. After all, even critics of Hitler and the NSDAP recognize that their propaganda was based on truth, and in our ass-backwards, Jew-run world, the truth is fundamentally “anti-Semitic”. So let’s not get caught up in this childish meme of “Hitler and the Nazis were evil, racist anti-Semites’” nonsense, and simply refuse to investigate objectively what they stood for. Look at what they said, did, wrote about, and represented, and you will come to the obvious conclusion that I have: that this movement was the greatest threat the world has ever known to the parasitic, subversive, and destructive nature of the international Jewish criminal cabal largely controlling the West, pushing for their “New World Order” on every front imaginable.

Scientists, environmentalists and even World War II historians have reacted with a mixture of excitement and concern to news that Russian geologists have drilled through to a huge subglacial lake in Antarctica, some 20 million years old.

It has taken more than 30 years to work through 3,700 meters of thick ice – drilling in temperatures as low as minus 80 centigrade.
But it will have been worth it, if even half the claims being made about the lake are true.

Life not on Earth

Sealed off below the ice for millions of years, the lake is a unique environment.
“According to our research, the quantity of oxygen there exceeds that on other parts of our planet by 10 to 20 times. Any life forms that we find are likely to be unique on Earth,” says Sergey Bulat, the Chief Scientist of Russia’s Antarctic Expedition to Russian Reporter magazine.
But there is one place not on Earth that has similar conditions – Europa, the mysterious satellite of Jupiter.

"The discovery of microorganisms in Lake Vostok may mean that, perhaps, the first meeting with extra-terrestrial life could happen on Europa," said Dr Vladimir Kotlyakov, Director of the Geography Institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences to Vzglyad newspaper.

So far scientists disagree about the presence of life forms in the water.

A lot depends on how the lake was formed. If the lake formed when Antarctica was already frozen – as ice was melted by the Earth’s core – then the chance of finding interesting micro-organisms are slim. But if the lake already existed when the Antarctic was still warm, anything is possible.
Non-scientists have asked if these life-forms could be dangerous – undiscovered viruses, or perhaps even a monster, like that in the John Carpenter film The Thing.

“Everything but the samples themselves will be carefully decontaminated using radiation. There is no need to worry,” Valeriy Lukin, Head of the Antarctic Expedition told Russian Reporter Magazine.

Does Selfishness Make the FOSS World Go 'Round?
(FOSS = Free Open Source Software)
"We work collectively, to improve the computing experience of each other," said Google+ blogger Alessandro Ebersol. "There's nothing selfish in that." Rather, "it's voluntary communitarian work. My benefit is the benefit of others, as what others make also benefit me. So, there's no place for selfishness."

Baby-boomers are becoming scapegoats
OPINION: There's nothing new about welfare reform, it's as old as the ideas advanced in its justification. Managing the poor and vulnerable is just one of those perennial problems with which governments of every stripe have to contend. Mostly, politicians restrict themselves to tinkering but every so often a government engages in the sort of ruthless reform that leaves deep scars upon the body politic.
Fortunately, the bitter historical memories handed down by its victims serve as a prophylactic against similar "reforms" for generations. But eventually popular memory fades and, when it does, the threat of root-and-branch reform returns. And tragedy follows it.
New Zealand may soon be facing just such a threat and, curiously, it's as likely to come from the Left as the Right. If that sounds improbable, then perhaps we should all remind ourselves that it was the supposedly Left-leaning Labour Party which unleashed the "New Right" economic reforms of the late 1980s.
And that it was no less a "liberal" than Bill Clinton who campaigned on a promise to "end welfare as we have come to know it" and who, in 1996, affixed his presidential signature to the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act.
But why would Labour do such a thing? How could attacking the poor and vulnerable possibly help it reclaim the Treasury benches? Part of the answer lies in the "communitarian" beliefs evinced by followers of Labour's "Third Way".
This philosophy asserts that too much emphasis has been placed on "rights" and not enough on "responsibilities" in the formulation of public policy. Society, they say, has a duty to see that one group of citizens' rights are not upheld at their neighbours' expense.
The implications of communitarianism for solo mums, the unemployed, the sick and the disabled are readily imagined. Indeed, they'd do well to remember that David Parker, Labour's finance spokesperson, is a strong believer in communitarian principles.
The other reason Labour might opt for root-and-branch welfare reform involves the same reasoning that went into the National Party's own root-and-branch solutions to the "problem" of "welfare dependency": poor people don't vote. In the last election, 800,000 New Zealanders failed to cast a vote.
Most were young, many were poor, and practically all didn't give a stuff about politics. Motivating them to vote requires immense effort, so National has opted instead to appease its more conservative supporters by transforming the young and the poor (Maori and Pasifika especially) into handy targets.
Labour's challenge is to find some way of mobilising the young without at the same time making itself a political hostage to the needs of the poor. One of the easier ways to do this might be to provide younger voters with a hate figure: a stereotype capable of igniting both their indignation and their fear.
Fortunately for Labour, such a stereotype already exists: the Selfish Baby Boomer.
By encouraging Generations X and Y to blame the Baby Boomers for everything from the price of real estate to the rising cost of tertiary education, and enlisting their support for a "root-and-branch" reform of New Zealand's "irresponsibly generous and fiscally unsustainable" system of universal superannuation, Labour could offset its declining levels of support among older voters.
By attributing New Zealand's indebtedness to the "intergenerational theft" of Baby Boomers, this stripped-down, communitarian Labour Party could, at least in younger voters' minds, transform "austerity" from a political swear-word into a righteous electoral virtue.
In combination with the Greens' bracing mantra of ecological restraint, they could be on to a winner.
In 1834 the newly enfranchised English middle-class shrugged-off its responsibilities to the poor and vulnerable by passing a new Poor Law. Its hated symbol, the workhouse, was immortalised by Dickens in Oliver Twist.
The new Poor Law's sponsor was not some Tory reactionary, but the liberal Whig, Lord Melbourne.
Baby-boomers, be on your guard.

What follows are excerpts from Roger Ebert's review of "Trust":
    "It tells its story of a 14-year-old girl and a predatory pedophile as a series of repercussions in which rape is only the first, and possibly not the worst, tragedy to strike its naive and vulnerable victim."
    "At its core is a remarkable performance by young Liana Liberato, who plays Annie Cameron, the happy child of a good home in upper-crust Wilmette. We hear a lot about the premature sexualization of young teens; she portrays a "good girl" who isn’t advanced, who feels uncomfortable at a party where "popular girls" fake sophistication. She’s ... a nice kid."
    "She’s never had a boyfriend when she meets Charlie in an online chat room. Charlie is in high school. Like her, he plays volleyball. He’s a nice kid, too. He understands her. She grows closer to Charlie than any boy she’s ever known. They talk for hours on the phone."
    "Charlie makes a confession. Actually, he’s in college. Actually, he’s a graduate student. Actually, he’s 25. "Why do you keep lying?" she asks. But Charlie is comforting and persuasive. She agrees to meet him in a mall."
    "She must have been warned about cases of online predators like him — but they couldn’t have been talking about her Charlie. Yet when Charlie turns up, he’s clearly well into his 30s. Annie is crushed. But he is persuasive and compelling, a smooth talker, pushing all the right buttons, exploiting her idealized fantasies about himself."
    "For Annie, the loss of her virginity is not the worst of it. More important is her reputation, her world in New Trier High School, her self-esteem. She might almost have been better off not telling anyone what happened. She confides in a friend, who blabs to the school principal, and she’s led away from school by two uniformed officers who come to investigate the crime. In this and countless details for the rest of the film, we realize a psychic rape is being added to the original one. Only a reserved but tactful psychiatrist (Viola Davis) completely understands what is happening."
    "Annie’s parents are good people. Her British father Will (Clive Owen) is a marketing executive — ironically, catering to the market for sexy teen fashions exploited by the notorious American Apparel retail chain. Her mother Lynn (Catherine Keener) is sensible and loving. The marriage is healthy. What Annie desperately needs is privacy and space. What she gets is an intrusive FBI investigation, brutal gossip at high school, cruel jokes played on the Internet, and the destruction of the idealized vision of Charlie she clings to."
    "It is all too tortuous and complicated. Liana Liberato does such a poignant job of showing how, and why. She has three scenes in particular where her wounded feelings spill out in words of anguish, and they are so well-written and well-acted that they’re heartbreaking. David Schwimmer has made one of the year’s best films: Powerfully emotional, yes, but also very perceptive."

CIA Microwave Weapons, Mind Control, and a Secret Dirty War
The narrator of this clip explains that from the standpoint of military intelligence personnel involved with the Phoenix Project during the Vietnam War, the defeat of the US was not a military failure but instead a defeat caused by a campaign of demoralization fought by domestic enemies on the homefront.
He states that a counterinsurgency doctrine has since been enacted in the "Homeland," armed with "soft kill" electromagnetic weapons that would ensure that such a "betrayal" of the military could never be repeated. He states:

"The generation of CIA and military intelligence, led by Shackley, Helms, Casey, Secord, Alexander, Aquino and Vallely have built the perfect beast, using selective assassination that leaves no trace. The ability to cull the human herd with Silent Kill technology allows a few personalities to remake the entire society in their own image.
"Extreme Low Frequency technology slowly drives the target crazy with Silent Sound," similar to the way the CIA's MK Ultra psychiatrist, Ewen Cameron's "psychic driving" technique was used to break down targets' personalities.
Additional notes by the uploader of this clip express his views that Toshiba HDTV sets are crucial components of the Pentagon's arsenal of nonlethal weapons that specialize in mass mind control through brainwave entrainment, subliminal suggestions and other covert means.

“Everygreen” CIA Owned Airline: Dropping Poison On You And Your Family
Evergreen Air is a CIA front company for chemtrail operations within the US, based out of Marana Air Park near Tucson Arizona and McMinnville, Oregon, near Portland.
A major missing piece of a grand conspiracy has been targeted by a drunk pilot. In a small town 30 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in Oregon is the center of a major global operation. At a bar in McMinnville, Oregon, an inebriated pilot attempted to impress one of the pretty ladies with tales of his secret mission.
The pilot’s pathetic attempt to portray himself as a Sean Connery or Daniel Craig caused him to (ante up) his importance and spill the secrets of the CIA’s asset Evergreen International Aviation.
The slurred revelations confirmed suspicions that Evergreen (International Aviation) is part of the major crap dump on the planet. Chemtrails made up aluminum, barium and other ingredients contribute to respiratory ills and change the acidity of the soil.
Evergreen works from over a 100 bases and employees 4,500 people. Delford Smith privately owns the company. They admittedly “perform” for the CIA.
Evergreen was given a no contest bid that gave them all the facilities in Marana, Arizona that previously belonged to CIA’s Air America (Pinal Air Park, Arizona).
The security at the Pinal site is said to be as severe as that of Area 51. It is run as a military base where one lost pilot got an armed escort immediately off the operational base. The 10 year pilot said it was nothing like anything he has ever seen.
Evergreen International Aviation brags of their planes that have 7 times the capacity of other fire fighters. One can carry 20,000 galleons. Firefighting … Right … and next we will be told the chemtrails are to prevent global warming as millions more are advancing to an early death.
Evergreen International Aviation has exemptions from the law that are advertised on their web site. They can fly anywhere and not stay on a designated route. Has CFR members paved the way? People like Philip Lader and John Wheeler III … they were in a position to do just that.
Evergreen’s public relations (propaganda) spokesman is handled by WPP run by Council on Foreign Relations member Philip Lader. He worked under the present head of the CIA … Leon Panetta as White House deputy of staff under Bill Clinton.
Philip Lader is an “inside” authority on international affairs and business. He is the non-executive Chairman of WPP Group, Senior Adviser to Morgan Stanley International, and a board member for think-tank RAND Corporation. He is also a trustee of UC Rusal (largest aluminum company in the world) the British Museum and St. Paul’s Cathedral Foundation. Ambassador Lader has addressed trans-Atlantic audiences from the U.N.’s General Assembly Hall to state chambers of commerce and local world affairs councils, is a member of Rockefeller’s Council on Foreign Relations.
Philip Lader (CFR) is a key player driving toward world government. In addition to running the Public Relations for Evergreen International Aviation … Lader is a director of UC Rusal, the largest Aluminum producer in the world located in Moscow, Sweden, Italy, and Australia. Nathaniel Rothschild is a big investor.
Eugenic operation of Chemtrails has had the assistance of Mitre a non-profit Corporation that manages the Federal Aviation Administration, Homeland Security, and IRS. (1) The IRS is part of the Federal Reserve which is a major transmission belt driving the conspiracy.
Philip Lader’s fellow Council on Foreign Relations member John P Wheeler III was recently dumped into a land fill in Wilmington, Delaware. Wheeler III was a consultant to Mitre the nonprofit corporation with jurisdictional advice over the Federal Aviation Administration’s flight patterns.
Was John P. Wheeler III to sentimental for the killing underway? And got murdered by the Company?
The CIA is the enforcement arm of the Council on Foreign Relations
Mitre is conveniently located in McLean, Virginia, home of the CIA.
Thanks to the drunken pilot and his loose lips … the Free People of the world can focus on the criminals who are poisoning our air and our water.

The Manufacturing of a President

The CIA’s Insertion of Barack H. Obama, Jr. Into the White House

By Wayne Madsen

This book covers Barack H. Obama, Jr’s rapid rise in American politics and the role that the CIA played in propelling him into the White House. Research is based on formerly classified CIA and State Department files, personal interviews, and international investigations. Obama’s birth certificate has never been the issue. The real issue, which affects his eligibility to serve as President of the United States, is his past and likely current Indonesian citizenship. The reader will be taken through the labyrinth of covert CIA operations in Africa, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and other regions. The real history of President Obama, his family, and the CIA quickly emerges as the reader wades into the murky waters of America’s covert foreign operations.
Ashton’s spokesman, US psychological warfare expert: Report

A report says Michael Mann, the spokesman for EU foreign policy Chief Catherine Ashton, is a “senior American psychological warfare officer.”

The only background of Mann which exists in the media depicts him as a former member of the US Embassy staff in Baghdad.
Mann was replaced with Maja Kocijancic as Ashton’s new spokesman ahead of the talks between Iran and the 5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in May.
The replacement of an American agent with the former spokesperson of the European negotiator has raised serious questions about the motives behind the move.
Being the spokesman on the P5+1 negotiating team indicates that Mann is an information outlet channeling all the data from the talks for the global public opinion.
The means of information dissemination now lies in the hands of US agents and not European negotiators, the report said.
According to the report, Mann worked as a senior American psychological warfare officer in Iraq and has had a key role in creating political and media controversies against the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and certain regional states.

Cure Tooth
Why Ancient Skulls Have All Of Their Teeth
Is there a truly a natural and organic way to treat cavities that is harmonious with how our body functions? What about a cure for cavities that lasts for your entire life, rather than the generally short lived "cure" offered by the dentist.
The new paradigm for dental health is nutritional healing. It is not about fixing a problem mechanically with surgery, but about fixing it organically with diet, and other factors that relate to health.
The current myth is that humans have always had tooth decay. But in reality, humans have not always had tooth decay, something has changed.
National Institutes of Health (NIH): "Tooth decay, known formally as “dental caries,” has been a serious health problem for all nations since time immemorial."
Comment: I am of the opinion that beyond ten thousand years ago, cavities were rare to nonexistent. It is with the advent of farming, that cavities started to appear. There are many burial grounds of more recent civilizations, whose skeletons show no evidence of cavities.
Dr. Weston Price recounts that "the Indian skulls that have been uncovered in many parts of the United States and Canada show a degree of excellence comparable to those seen in this Figure. These levels of excellence were the rule with them, not the exception as with us. The parents of these individuals knew what they and their children should eat!"
Think about this. Many of us have teeth falling out of our mouths, or decaying in our mouths. Yet these skulls have perfect teeth without cavities. How is it that these skulls keep perfect teeth even when the individual has died? Whereas modern humans have severe cavities even when they are alive?

The answer has to do with the food that we eat. It is explained in great detail in my book, Cure Tooth Decay.
Amount of meat we eat will barely affect future climate change

This one, from Inspiration Farm in Bellingham, WA was built by 3 people in 90 minutes, and that includes gathering material. They ran 100 ft poly pipe to the pile, where the heat was generated by the compost. Cold water was also run to this rustic outdoor shower.
For two months in the summer, there were an average of 6 showers a day - and they never ran out. When the compost pile was done generating heat, they had finished compost to use! And plenty of happy moist mushrooms where the shower was.
Win Win Win, yes that is permaculture!

Electric utilities: ‘Smart' air-conditioners will be cycled today
Philadelphia area electric utilities, responding to the hot weather, say they plan to cycle the home air-conditioning systems today of customers who volunteered for a special conservation program.
Peco Energy Co. said it plans to curtail electrical power to the air-conditioners of 87,000 customers between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. today during a period of peak demand on the regional electrical grid. Customers who signed up for its Smart A/C Saver program agreed to allow the utility to shut down the compressors of their air-conditioners for 15 minutes every half hour during a conservation event. Peco declared a similar event Wednesday between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., said Catherine Engel-Menendez, Peco's spokeswoman.
Atlantic City Electric, which has 25,000 customers enrolled in its Energy Wise Rewards program, say it plan to curtail air-conditioner use from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday. The homes of customers in the program might experience a 1 to 3 degree increase in temperature during the event.

How to Turn Your Truck Into a Generator
All you need is an inverter and some DIY wiring

Generate power for corded tools anywhere you go without the cost and hassle of a gas-powered generator by wiring a power inverter to your truck battery.
By the DIY experts of The Family Handyman Magazine: September 2011


No matter how good your battery-powered saw or drill is, sometimes you need a plug-in tool to get the job done. Don’t have an AC receptacle nearby? Well, if you have a truck, you already have most of the makings of a rolling AC generator. Just install an AC inverter and you’ll have about 1,800 watts at your fingertips. The basic setup runs about $450, and the upscale version (with auxiliary battery and isolator relay) about $700. The installation takes just a few hours and requires only a drill and hand tools.

Component shopping

Photo 1: Thread the cables and connect

Pop 1-in. chase nipples into the holes in the bed and the box and spin on locknuts. Then push the "smurf" tube and cable through the nipples and connect them to the inverter.

AC inverters come in two styles: modified and pure sine wave. A modified sine wave inverter (such as the AIMS No. PWRINV1800W; available from is less expensive and works great with power tools. For “cleaner” power to run a computer, TV or portable tool battery charger, buy a pure sine wave inverter. Be sure it has built-in overload, over-temperature, over-and-under voltage and fault protection, as well as neutral isolation.
You’ll also need one 200-amp fuse block/fuse kit (two if you add a second battery and three if you add a battery isolator). Order separate lengths of 1/0 cable for the positive and negative connections. Adding a 100Ah valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery is optional. It adds a few hundred dollars to the cost, but it helps prevent alternator overheating and helps maintain the voltage under heavy loads. Add an isolation relay at the same time to prevent draining your main battery.

Select a mounting location

Inverters create a lot of heat, so mount yours in a spot with adequate airflow like your truck bed toolbox or on the floor behind the driver's seat. Open the toolbox lid or the cab door when the inverter's in use.

Run the cabling

Every vehicle is different, so I can’t give you a “one-size-fits-all” wire routing scheme. But the most important rule is to keep both cables away from the engine block, pulleys, steering components, and the exhaust manifold and pipes. And run a separate negative cable from the inverter back to the main battery. To protect the cables under the vehicle, run them (especially the positive cable) inside flexible plastic 3/4-in. conduit. (This Carlon Flex-Plus Blue product, nicknamed “smurf” conduit by electricians, is available in 10-ft. lengths in the electrical department at home centers.) Then drill two 1-in. holes in the truck bed and two in the toolbox and install electrical fittings (Photo 1). Next, mount the inverter.
Mount the optional battery isolation relay under the hood and connect the trigger wire to a switch-powered “hot” wire. Install the optional auxiliary battery close to the inverter. See Figure A for the complete wiring diagram.

Finish the job at the battery

Photo 2: Secure the fuse block

Clamp the cable ring terminals under the serrated washers and install the fuse. Then tighten the nut and install the protective cover.

Connect the positive cable to a fuse block before attaching it to the battery (Photo 2). Finish the job by connecting the negative cable to the battery.
