There are times when I'd like to share something with you but my Voice in the Garden site does not seem the appropriate place, thus, this blog.

There are experiences, thoughts, views... and for anyone lurking/waiting to pounce (as has occurred on several occasions), please do not attempt to turn what I post into a political statement. This is NOT a political site, but IS about occurrences, reality, and personal opinion concerning what I see in the world around me and my family. There are many excellent writers whose works "speak" to me, and I shall include some of them. At times it may be
something I think you would enjoy or simply whatever ails you (me).

The Great Awakening

The Great Awakening: Humanity’s “emperor has no clothes” breakthrough

 
Human beings with intellectual integrity and moral courage see, speak, and act for humanity’s Great Awakening: critical mass of the 99% recognizing “emperor has no clothes” facts that the “1%” are War Criminals who murder by the millions, corporate cartels that collude by the billions and banksters who loot by the trillions, and purchased corporate media that constantly lie to hide these crimes.

The 1%’s Wars of Aggression has been a principal factor of US history since President Polk blatantly violated a treaty with Mexico to steal 40% of their land in 1846 (despite “Honest Abe” Lincoln’s brilliant speech to the House of Representatives to explain and document the crime).

The artistic power of this 8-minute video communicates humanity’s current position, and what is possible with out awakening.

An obvious response to being awakened is to speak and act to arrest the 1% to remove them from any power to cause more harm.

This breakthrough of awakening by the 99% leads to peace, immediately ending the most pressing problems of poverty, and creating an inspirational future of breakthroughs (The Venus Project and wanttoknow.info for examples of what’s possible).

"Mad As Hell"

Anyone remember this scene by Howard Beale (Peter Finch) in the 1976 American film Network?

 

Beale: I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it.

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be!

We all know things are bad -- worse than bad -- they're crazy.

It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials, and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone."

Well, I'm not going to leave you alone.

I want you to get mad!

I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your Congressman, because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.

All I know is that first, you've got to get mad.

You've gotta say, "I'm a human being, goddammit! My life has value!"

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell,

"I'm as mad as hell,
and I'm not going to take this anymore!!"
