- We talk a lot about Freedom & Democracy as if these
were the cornerstones of our existence; yet we have been living in a
Depression, for the last two years, that has refused to take into account
any responsibility for the course of our actions that have translated
our efforts to build or create, into nothing but massive destruction and
a total denial of the mindset that has led us to what is no longer meant
by "Freedom & Democracy."
- Essentially we have been living these lies with every
press conference that we endured without resistance. This is how it came
to be that we are now trying to live in the largest police-state on this
earth while denying that reality.
- What we have done is to construct three separate worlds
that can never fit inside the same fiction that is displayed to the world,
as a single nation. These separate worlds are continually 'at each other's
throats' in privatized efforts to dominate, while at the same time as
each of the various occupants are trying to 'live' lives that are "safe,"
from the other two groups trying to live in the same spaces.
- We attempted to create Sanctuary's apart from "the
huddled masses yearning to breathe free," but we did not consider
what is needed to sustain these places that cannot exist apart, from the
pandemonium and competition of our inner-cities or the suburbs, that
are necessary connectors to these two very different kinds of places:
Because instead of uniting the populations these three very different
worlds seem to be in constant conflict, not only with each other, but
with the very idea of community as a unified core for this or any other
society. Having chosen instead to pursue privatization over the public
good and private ownership over public necessity in every case where there
is a conflict.
- I tried to show this disconnect through roads and stairways
that do not connect this hypothetical Sanctuary with the Crossroads of
that jumble of construction and security that too many cities have become:
largely due to the expanding glut in the rise of the suburbs that seem
to keep them both apart.
- The third world I refer to is composed of those that
have been forced to live 'between the cracks' and largely remain in the
shadows of the wastes and fabled failures of these two very overrated
public worlds. Our freeways do not connect us, and our stairways to progress,
while visually impressive, too often, do not serve any useful function.
- All this posturing; whether it's about the language or
the facts, of any given area in life, has continued to isolate and categorize
us as its occupants in ways that separate us from ourselves; as well
as from those in the other two groups.
- This man-made labyrinth however has its own very severe
boundaries, and cannot continue indefinitely. Some chose to see this as
'the future' others see it as part of the natural limitations that are
inherently placed on everything that lives. Most refer to this limitation
as 'Death.' Yet there are many more kinds of death than the simple form
that most people think about, whenever that unmentionable word is spoken.
Another American taboo is to even speak of death, in any form, because
for all too many "that's a negative, and we must live only in a joyous
and positive world." That's garbage of course, because life actually
gets many of its meanings from the inevitability of death.
- Here is one version of Death & Transition, as two
ends of one contingent that remains a constant in all of life-no matter
which of the three worlds you might find yourself trying to live in.
- Death is ruled by the 28 day cycle of woman, and is a
transforming experience, whether this refers to the death of a misplaced
passion or to the death of childhood, so that the next phase of life can
be born: Or whether death has come to move us to another realm. Death
has always been a major factor in the ways we choose to live the lives
we have, regardless of the many choices that we chose to make. It will
come to every one that is alive today, because ultimately, everybody dies.
- ?The other-figure is the Transition that is born from
the opulence of the Lotus that opens the way to new insight that in turn
gives birth to a chrysalis, which in its turn becomes the wonder of the
butterfly that lives again after the seventeen years that was spent in
hibernation. The bottom line is that Life can be reborn in completely
new configurations, and often a new life cycle can be discovered wherein
the possibilities have yet again been changed, thus enabling an entirely
new perspective. All in all there are far more wonders associated with
this pivotal image than we ever tend to think about, especially when we're
- With this in mind perhaps 'the future' that we choose
to think about might well take on a very different look? There are reasons
why we cannot see the future. If we could know what's coming, perhaps
the whole point of attaining or of failing to achieve; might well be very
different. The terms under which 'life' survives are these: The future
is not knowable, and shall always remain within the ever-distant tomorrows'
of our lives. The past is gone, and while it can be studied for whatever
lessons it might lend us, we can never change it. So all we really have
is this moment in which each of us is living now: And as each one of us
is responsible for what happens in the 'NOW.' Maybe all we can do is
'try' but we must at least give it a shot" on the chance that
together we will make a difference?
- Anyone can write or draw or find some way to express
what they are feeling about anything, given the global reach of the internet
and all its varied applications. When I got involved in these last eight
years of unspeakable acts and war unending, the world was conflicted about
what happened on 911-but as the world became aware of the totally flawed
official story, along with exactly who directly profited from all the
plunder and the lies: the entire argument began to reverse itself, until
now there are very few left that give any credibility to that tattered
rag that was the official story of the hours that consumed the world on
September eleventh, 2001, and beyond.
- In the beginning this was all 'about the facts.' Now
there is a glut of information about every facet of the truth, every
conceivable part of this whole obscene nightmare has been explored and
questioned: The only thing still 'missing in action' is the active participation
of the largest single group involved-the American general public.
- Until now the American public has done virtually nothing
about the war-torn history of these years that was written in the blood
of millions of innocent people early on; and is not just continuing,
but is expanding now under the obscenities being created in the name of
our own Obamanation, that has now claimed his right-to- dictatorship, in
this screwed up world. Unless we do something there will be nothing left
to argue about, because we'll all either be dead or imprisoned if we refused
to leave the comfort of our silence for the open conflict of resistance
- There are some real things that can be done BIGTIME,
to alter the impending fall of the Sword of Damocles,' but nothing will
change until everyday people discover their own outrage over just how
completely "we've all been had!" Listen to the interviews with
Amy Goodman and Nomi Prins, former investment banker turned journalist.
She used to run the European analytics group at Bear Stearns and is now
a senior fellow at Demos. She is the author of two books: Other People's
Money: The Corporate Mugging of America and Jacked: How Conservatives
Are Picking Your Pocket. Her upcoming book is called It Takes a Pillage.
And with Robert Johnson, former chief economist of the Senate Banking
Committee and a former managing director at Soros Fund Management. His
latest article is Nationalize Failing Banks? Think Twice. (1)
- If this is indeed "Our World" then we need
to make that clear to the whole planet, once and for all: because only
the truth of what has happened globally-can ever set any of us free-again!
