“Finally, the truth about symbols”

“Americans are so enamored of equality, they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville **** It was a language, more and more, infiltrated by imagination.

“No Cops! No Government! Just Anarchy In Mexico Town:” No Two-Legged PIGS Of Any Kind! (11 Minute Video)

Anarchism is not synonymous with chaos, as you have been mind-fucked into believing. Human beings lived and thrived, in this manner, long before there were psychopathic elite-swine owned and operated governments, and their freedom restricting laws and economic systems, which have only served the elite-swine FEW, while making certain that the disenfranchised MANY would struggle, … Continue reading “No Cops!

“The Sexual Passion of Winston Smith”

...Of course the hermetically sealed world of 1984 is not the United States. Orwell created a society in which escape was impossible. It is, after all, an admonitory novel – not the real world. Things are more subtle here; we still have some wiggle room – some – although the underlying truth is the same: … Continue reading “The Sexual Passion of Winston Smith”

“Slow Suicide and the Abandonment of the World”

Long before a thermonuclear war can … Continue reading “Slow Suicide and the Abandonment of the World”

“Lighting the Candle Again”

“May we learn to share our light and stand together for the sake of all we love.”

If there be any real reason for this season, this hopeful exhortation should be it! What I want for Christmas is a united humanity, standing together and lighting the way to a brand new world.

“I am a living member of the great family of all souls; and I cannot improve or suffer myself, without diffusing good or evil around me through an ever-enlarging sphere. I belong to this family. I am bound to it by vital bonds.” – William Ellery Channing

Winter Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere just passed

symbolizing growing light
