Who are the “savages” really? We see “savagery” in Nature, among animals and planetmates, just like we did among indigenous peoples.


“So white man wiped out these “savages” and committed genocide on entire societies/cultures of them. And the indigenous peoples … they were the savages?!


“I think we currently have a similar attitude about our planetmates as White Man has had about indigenous peoples historically. We are the savages seeing “savagery” in other people … and in Nature.


“We are seeing what is going on in Nature through filters biased in our favor, much like being ethnocentric in judging other cultures and “races.” And with a closer look and putting judgment to the side we come up with an entirely different understanding — one that aids the cross-species understanding between humans and planetmates that is now, and none too soon, dawning on us…..”

“Killing “The Sixties”: The responses of the 1% to Sixties activism “were calculated to placate the masses and keep them, as for hundreds of years, feeling nervous, unworthy, inferior, and slavish in relation to the wealthy and powerful….”



“What happens to a revolution not televised:

“Others have asserted that the media played a large and active part in the “disappearance” of this generation. It has been noted, for example, as simply one indicator, that 90% of youth protests were reported by the media in 1969, but only 20 to 25% were covered in 1970-71, and only 1% of such dissident activities could be found in the media coverage of 1972.

“One could argue in response to this that demonstrations were becoming commonplace, so they qualified less as news as time went by. But this reasoning does not fully explain the precipitous nature of this decline, nor the resulting virtual elimination of coverage. In respect to comparable events of recent times, such a pattern has elicited the label “media cover-up.”

“Killing “The Sixties”

“It is therefore much more likely — and there has been evidence and published commentary to this effect — that this decline was part of a concerted effort by the media, in collusion with the threatened established sectors of society, to actively put a lid on student and youthful dissent and unrest.

“Keeping the People Down

“I myself have knowledge and personal experience of how a similar suppression at exactly this time was perpetrated on university campuses.

“Enlightenment lobotomies … again

“Specifically, at the college I was attending — Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania — and other colleges and universities around the country in 1971, wealthy alumni threatened to withdraw funding unless (1) certain faculty members, considered “threatening” to established interests, were fired, (2) certain programs — considered too innovative, “disruptive,” or “instigative” — were cut back or eliminated, and (3) certain “unorthodox,” “undisciplined,” or “publicly disrespectful” student behaviors were discouraged, suppressed, and/or harshly responded to and clamped down on.

“The total remaking of society, so such a generation would never arise again

“Indeed, such active “blacklisting” of counterculture figures, behavior, and values on university campuses seemed to be part of a general dictum across institutions — including publishing, films, TV, education at all levels, medicine and science, and the work place — to actively fight back at what was seen as dire threats to traditional mainstream values — values, incidentally, that were calculated to placate the masses and keep them, as for hundreds of years, feeling nervous, unworthy, inferior, and slavish in relation to the wealthy and powerful….”

“lives are at stake…. including yours… but mostly it’s about the innocent ones… the planetmates and the children…” (a message to the critics of those of us working on the environmental crisis)


“I won’t be wasting my time with you.”


You know, i just don’t have the time to explain to you why i work so hard. And, actually, i have at length… in the past.


i understand, i understand… that if you were doing something like i am, it would be all out of ego … and for some gain….


i know that you are that way and you don’t have a clue what people like me are like on the inside.


you don’t understand. you just don’t understand what i see. you don’t understand how i feel, how i care, and how much i love…


so your criticism and your insults are just a waste of time… i can’t slow down to address you… i have to hurry forward… 


lives are at stake…. including yours… but mostly it’s about the innocent ones… the planetmates and the children… 


and i know you don’t understand that…


and compared to that, to them, you’re not so fucking important, are you? Now, surely, you must be able to see that….


but i’ll give you this. i do believe if you knew what i knew and knew how it was going to directly affect the lives of your family, you, too, would have your arms waving all over the internet to avert it, and you, too, would stand in front of the horror approaching….


but you don’t understand, you just don’t understand…


and if i waste time with you, i can’t get to where i can be actually helping … not just wasting my time with you…

The purpose for existence: “You might say that we are video games for God, who has disintegrated Herself into many, in a process of forgetting….”

it’s true that when we realize our fundamental reality as Divinity … fully … we cast off the body and the state of physical reality as being essentially unreal and inconsequential….

however, till that ultimate overstanding … in the meantime … and we, as God, know this beforehand, before incarnating in physical reality …  being in the body is fun!! or at least more interesting than spirit by itself….


so, there is a damn good reason for duality … a damn good reason for God forgetting Himself….


you might say that we are video games for God, who has disintegrated Herself into many, in a process of forgetting … just for the fun of it….


another way of saying it is that we are God, who is high, and is having a “night out on the town” … for that you can read, who is “tripping out in the Universe” for the fun or “glory” of it … making it all more by adding it being interesting to what is already All That Is


yes, you heard me. we are drunken gods…. we are God when he’s trippin.


knowing this purpose for physical reality … at this time in this story of Earth … well, 


…this is the time of the coming together of heaven and earth….

On the brink of ecocide AND humanicide (the suicidal killing of our species) as we are, ought we not re-vision “man”kind’s vaunted “civilization”

“Will “Progress of Man” Be Humanity’s Epitaph?

“But all of these developments, these increases of control over Nature, are traditionally seen as the “progress of man,” the advance and evolution of humans. On the brink of ecocide and humanicide as we now are as a result of these developments, we have a unique vantage point for re-visioning these changes. Are these vaunted human “achievements” so great if they lead to species annihilation, species suicide, and ecocide as is becoming increasingly likely?…”

Egotistical and arrogant, patriarchal “heroes” see no problem in straying over lines to get what they want. We see it so much on TV, we turn our heads at atrocities and injustices perpetrated by our own.

Egotistical and arrogant, patriarchal “heroes” deem they know better than anyone what is right and what is wrong — the Manichean separation of the world into absolutes of good and evil, you see. So they see no problem in straying over lines to get what they want. We see that element in virtually all tales of patriarchal heroes. It is so much a part of our thinking we fail to notice any problem when the tough guy police officer on the silver screen beats a confession out of the supposed bad guy or gets him to offer up the location of his buddies, the bomb, the body, or the loot by using what amounts to torture. The cops can blow things up, crash cars, kill people in crossfires, and more, because it is all in the service of “the good,” we are led to believe. We see that plot portrayed thousands of times over the course of our lives and never question it. In the same way, we turn our heads at Abu Ghraib. 

Guantanamo is justified because we have a War on Terror, and patriarchal heroes, followers of the Perseus way, are especially gifted in the knowledge of what is terror — that the suffering they perpetrate in the world, through their wars and torture, are not terror but that the enemy’s actions are. This is no different from the cavalry knowing damn well sure that the indians are savage and so having no problem performing a genocide of them. Similarly, in full knowledge of the supposed rightness of his actions, Perseus is able to pressure and trick old and feeble women to do his bidding, with no sense of conscience.

Convenient (for the “Filthy Rich”) “Truth”: If a Million People Appeared in DC, and the Media Didn’t Cover It, Did It Really Happen?

“However, when I had my first personal experience with a major national lie at the age of nineteen — one that involved an obvious collusion of State Department, Department of Defense, and all the major newspapers in America — I was shaken. When I saw that one day later all the local media followed up by headlining stories that further misinformed and that nowhere was the truth ever reported accurately of what one million people experienced on a day that would go down in history, anyway, but “censored,” I was further changed. 

“Indeed, I have checked the history books and they tell the story of what I saw with my own eyes inaccurately, following the newspaper reports, which followed the reports from unknown sources in the Department of Defense. Even the idea that anyone would take the Department of Defense’s version of the largest anti-war demonstration in history as the basis for the story of that day is telling. 

“Then I was to find out that the story of that day and its coverage was bigger in some arenas than it should have been. Howard K. Smith lost his job at ABC over the telling of the truth of that day. People remember him from the PBS channel. Some of us who are older remember that he was one of the major anchors at ABC. 

“What would cause such a precipitous event as his firing? Well, it had to do with the fact that ABC news was scheduled and fully prepared to do dawn to dusk coverage of Moratorium Day on November 15th, 1969. One million people flooded into Washington, D.C., the largest gathering for an event, save Woodstock, in American history, and for the purpose of stopping a war. Mom, Pop, and the kids and the students came from all fifty states. The buses were lined up and I personally saw buses that came from the West Coast, from Wisconsin, from Washington State, and so on. It was phenomenal.

“If a Million People Appeared in DC, and the Media Didn’t Cover It, Did It Really Happen?

“Well, before coverage could begin over at ABC, as it turns out, word came down from “on high,” meaning outside of the news department. People like to say that it does not matter who owns a media outlet, like, say Rupert Murdoch now owns the Wall Street Journal. They say editorial policy is not affected by who owns it. 

“Well that day whoever controlled and owned ABC decided that their personal interests were going to be hurt by showing a gathering of that many people amassing against the war — one out of every 200 people living in America managed to personally show up, how many more would have come if they could, how many more would be at home watching and would be stirred and influenced by such a sight? 

“When Woodstock saw such numbers it was talked about in the media and it became history. 

“And how was it covered by the media? By the time we arrived home that evening, the news wires were reporting that the Department of Defense estimated the crowd to be about 200,000. Keep in mind how “accurate” [sarcasm] DOD estimates of an anti-war demonstration are likely to be. The following day, a Sunday, the local newspapers were reporting that 100,000 had showed up. And by Monday, the headlines were all that supposedly 20,000 had “rioted” that day after the event … which was actually an overblown event of a few rocks being thrown, by a handful of erstwhile demonstrators, occurring after the demonstration … still it sufficed, for the purposes of the media, to cancel out actual coverage of the event itself.

“Media Masters

“But the people who pull the strings in this country pulled the strings at ABC that day and changed what would be reported as history. And it would be a lie. 

“As for the News Department at ABC having independence: Well, Howard K. Smith, veteran and senior news reporter at the time, was so incensed and so insistent on finding out who and how and why this coverage was changed from dusk to dawn to practically nothing that it led to his dismissal. If he was angry about it, angry enough to get fired over it, can you not imagine that the entire News Department was against the change? 

“Where’d Wisconsin Go?

“While this is history not news, it is current news as well … though we cannot call it “headline” news for reasons that have to do with the media. Something disturbingly similar happened more recently regarding media coverage of the Wisconsin pro-union rallies. While the largest rallies in Madison, Wisconsin history were going on — an estimated 100,000 showed up on one day, 200,000 people a week or so after that — hardly anything about them was mentioned in the mainstream media.

“Tea Party Patsies

“Keep in mind that this same media has covered and continues to promote and “tout” (even) rallies of (often paid) Tea Party proponents attended only by crowds in the HUNDREDS! 

“Convenient (For the “Filthy Rich”) “Truth”

“So who determined what would be the truth that day. Well, it certainly was not news reporters. 

“The story is only that it came from “on high.” I guess from that you can discern that ownership made the decision that day; and we have no idea how many other times it has done that. We can only conclude that just the threat of interference will keep the media in line with the interests of ownership. 

“We Decide, You React

“We can only conclude that when senior people, household names, are fired on the spot, that it sends a message that only grows stronger with the years, especially as ownership will make the decisions behind the scenes as to the kind of reporters it will even have working for them. 

“Rather Hear from Dan?

“By the way, a more recent example of such a thing happening has to do with the dismissal of Dan Rather. You’ve probably heard the ownership’s slant on that story. You should listen to Mister Rather tell the story some time. It is quite different from the “official” version. 

“President Al Gore. Sorry, I Was Dreaming About a Democratic America

“Dan Rather’s version, if it had not been undermined, might have led to Al Gore, not George Bush, getting the Presidency in 2000 (even with “filthy rich” and Supreme Court support at that time to begin “installing” our presidents). That is another thing to think about when you think that we have a free press in this country; or if you should think that any ownership involvement in the news has little or no consequences.

“Back to my story, this incident has to do with my understanding of the truth, and of history as it relates to the media and their coverage. For on the days following what should have been one of the major events on American public record, and should have been influential in the course the war would take after that day, my belief in America’s premier role, because of its supposed rights, such as “freedom of the press,” in being the most reliable in getting to the real story and reporting events as close to actuality as humans are capable of was shattered forever. Never again would I look at a story out of the mainstream press, no matter how widely reported and/or held to be fact, without looking for the possible agendas and forces that would affect the veracity of what was being said….”

“Slaughtering” Smart Folks: “they would become rote learners of narrowly applicable, short-lived ‘knowledge,’ removing the educated class as a barrier to a totalitarian America”


From the 70s on, in America, “This would remove the educated class as a barrier to any kind of totalitarian efforts.”:

“So liberal arts ideals were bulldozed away to make room for the career tracks leading directly into positions in management, medicine, law, and many new and highly specialized niches — usually the kind of specialization that would not occur until the postgraduate years, or after graduation directly on the job….

“Rather, if corporations were seen or heard to be needing, say, people knowledgeable in inter-managerial, mid-corporate, communicative intercourse and response, well entire four year programs were built around that. Add that kind of narrowly focused citizenry with its ephemeral knowledge and you have the kind of population that will do the bidding of the overseers and be happy for their fat paychecks — until their narrow niche of “knowledge” becomes obsolete….

“Slaughtering Smart Folks 

“They will be happy for their paychecks, not knowing of any higher ideals than greed and accumulation. They will not know of their manipulation, would not know of the historical predecessors to it or the like. They would not have training in original thought but rather in training in decided upon processes and procedures and the jargon accompanying it. So they would become rote learners of narrowly applicable and short-lived “knowledge.” This would remove the educated class as a barrier to any kind of totalitarian efforts….”
