Song of Alarm
Sound the alarms
let the people hear!
Sound the trumpets
let the rockets flare!
Sound the cymbals
clanging our hopes out loud!
Sing the song of victory
never mind the flowing blood!
Sing out loud for all to hear
never mind the raging flood!
Sing! Sing! Sing you fools,
till we’ve filled the bloody pools!
And weep torrents as we all see
the cost of horrors yet to be…..

The “War on Women” is a continuation of the violence of ignorance and malice by our religious leaders, fascist corporations and politicians. They are old white guys (here in the U.S., anyway) who hail the success of such events as the Inquisition, Hiroshima, the hanging of Saddam Hussein, Gitmo and the humiliation of Sandra Fluke. After all, they are currently using the torture techniques inherited from their chosen “Grand Inquisitors”. In less than 100 years the Inquisition murdered over 10 million women and girl-children horribly! It was most certainly not a time to have a dead-beat husband and PMS, it still isn’t! They’ve plotted to return us to Medieval times. When you imprison Women, you’ve imprisoned Mankind and eliminated any hope of higher evolution as a species. Our current societal and political situation speaks volumes to their unending enslavement of women. This enemy simply must be vanquished.
Just as they self righteously placed our fore-mothers in iron maidens, chastity belts, shackles, and the death pyre, our enemy holds the iron attitude of all who came before them, and the power$ to “make it so”. The difference is now we know better; but they refuse, and they must!
We must always remain vigilant. Without our individual active participation in our own emancipation, these men will always find reasons and mechanisms to destroy life wherever they find it all the while saying words to defile Women and criminalize their bodies; their very right to their own physical well being. They will ever continue to collect living specimens to torment beyond imagination while pretending to care about a zygote. Simply stated, they are destroying girls and women, life and our beautiful World. We women are the only ones who can stop them. We are Mother. Mother to mankind in the same way Earth is Mother to all that abides upon her. We are androgynous Atlas, upon which the good and evil is held upon our shoulders. We understand the necessity to teach our children to play without violence and emotional hurt to one another. These men and their progenitors allowed no such teaching from the Women who gave them life.
Their offense – Hubris.
All that they do, all that they think; every plan, every introduction is stratigized to shore up and perpetrate their arrogant and dangerous views of themselves upon every creature known and unknown. Their information content and distribution need not and almost never includes any actual fact or concrete truth. Rarely will you find their arguments (if ever these days) logical in their comparison. It is still the Texas school child who told his teacher, “Well, if someone dies every time you clap your hands then don’t clap.” Such will always be their solution; it is all they have or are willing to offer. Their enforcement is brutal; our choice..? “Go deaf dumb and blind or only look forward to jails, institutions and death”. A continued militarized and “refined” force of oppression by any and every means they deem necessary including a “Scorched Earth” Policy is what we can look forward to in our dissent.
Their great offense – Tyranny.
When reflecting upon our recorded human history, the reality of Men’s War on Women comes to light as the coldest, most inhumane, ruthless and relentless war throughout time. The most aware women I’ve met have been medical doctors. I am honoured to have been educated by a few. Their voices have been completely silenced today.
Yet, of all the victories our Enemy enjoys, their greatest achievement is “Global Domination”, i.e. Globalization, i.e. Global Warming. Sounds like a video game, doesn’t it? Well, who do you think thought up these violent video games with their titles all speaking to death and violence, to the antithesis of Womanhood? What did you think they were training our children to do? The Pentagon has been a financial supporter and think tank laboratory for the gaming industry indoctrinating our children into militarization, killing and rape. Recall the likes of “Grand Theft Auto”? They are proud of it. Mothers, are we?
Their “little soldiers”, our children, haven’t all taken to the reality of war as they’d hoped. South Korea, Vietnam, Serbia, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, et al have proven to the human psyche that War Is Never a viable option. “You can’t kill your way to a peaceful society”, so says my pacifist friend, a Man. They’ve given us intimations about how they think (compassion is utterly lacking in our Enemy) about the “broken” daughters and sons they have trained since childhood, sent to war and returned, some not yet in their body bag. Our soldiers committing suicide at impossible rates (like the epidemic levels of autism in new births) wrenches at us, causes as unending a grief as their war. These are our children, we gave them life and made them as strong as we know how, and these Bully Tyrants send them back to us to die alone and unaided. That is how a suicide experiences their death, that is why it is the greatest form of murder, and is a Badge of Distinction for the U.S. Military and their Corporate sponsors around the World. Intimating even that our babies who kill themselves are too damaged and they are better off dead. With everything in the headlines do we need to even address why they are insistent that we carry all pregnancies to term? Add the serious premature development of our daughters by the ages of nine and 10 into childbearing years? No, we are deeply, even if unconsciously, aware that we and the life we give are nothing more than fodder for their cannons.
Their crime –Murder of Humanity and Our Mother Earth
(Women are the “u nity” in the man. Without us first and last, they are only capable of destruction.)
Along with global domination by their Corporations, who are NOT people but only a legal entity that will be taken away legally, the military and political industrial consortium has run rampant with fiat currency, yet claiming their “interest” charges are actual real money in real foreign bank accounts and must be credited to them as such, just like our “interest” of near 30% on any amounts due on the consumer debt forced upon us for lack of wages over the past forty (40) years must be paid or they terrorize us in our own homes. Trillions! Really? Amazing how the cosmologists and astronomers don’t refer to such numbers, (paraphrased) “… you can’t write such numbers out, so what’s the point in dealing with numbers we can’t conceive of. Look at the heavens, and be amazed!” Only computers can count in the billions and trillions. We can wrap our world with all the monies in it and still not have enough to pay these bastards what they claim is owed them. The simple fact is that as Women, we have been working for less than 75cents on the dollar into the 21st Century. A major indicator of their baseline belief; we are of no innate value to them. I have never earned a fair income for my output. Neither have you, and until this Enemy is vanquished, no one will. They plunge our families into poverty, sickness, hopelessness and death (like our Soldier Children) for their Love of Money.
Their outstanding Character defect – Pathological Greed
Given the characteristics of our Enemy, we find ourselves struggling to feed our children. We have always had to struggle for our basic right to the free abundance of our Mother Earth. Their greed denies us. We struggle with sickness and even if we can scrounge together money for insurance, there are no healers. We are subject to procedures and surgeries and medicines and attitudes when described sounds like writings in journals of 20th Century Holocaust Survivors, the fruits of which are then placed in Petri dishes and patented by Corporations. They have pushed Mother Earth over the tipping point with the filth from their greed, and tell us it’s not their fault, but the Earth’s herself, and us, after all we wanted what they were selling. We are not allowed to reply, we are silenced and they keep making money from carbon emissions swaps. There is NO WAY these men will stop what they are doing. Like addicts hopelessly lost to their addiction, they have lost all ability to reason, even for their own future.
Their condition – They Are Insane.
As we stand on the precipice of the destruction of American Democracy, World Economy and Global Warming we can see those looking down upon us, and, Sweetie, they aren’t Angels. Our Mother Earth will cleanse herself and adjust to what she needs to survive, that may well not include the human species.
Never, in our existence have we been such a profound danger to ourselves and our Earth. Warrior, Woman, you are the one who sees into generations! The Soldier, Man, he cannot. Our enemies will not. They fear, and rightly so, the future will not include them or their works. With a scorched earth policy, these men concern themselves with us NOT finding out why they really don’t give a damn. They are dangerous, they are paranoid, they are liars of the highest order and they want to own it all and they will kill what they can’t have. We know their names now, some of them anyway. The light is shinning. But this tunnel still has a ways to go.
I can’t help but keep thinking about ending well. Just because all of our generations have suffered needlessly and horribly does not constitute a Universal Law that this behaviour must continue until our demise. No, not at all! Maybe we have one or more generations left before the Earth bids us adieu, and even if Mother decides not to abort us, why can’t we take what we know, as women, and build a world that nurtures, trains and encourages the wonderful miracle of The Living. We need not study war anymore. Just strategies on how to cull our enemy from their herd and contain them, keeping them ever distant from their weapons of mass destruction, and females! A kindness to the complete genocide our Enemies have practiced!
We do need to start with the money! After all, we must TAKE the basic inalienable right of all life on this Planet, the RIGHT to FEED OUR FAMILIES!
Perhaps there will come a time when such Hubris, Tyranny, Murder and Greed, all culminating in deadly Insanity, will be no more, especially if they aren’t able to breed. Personally, I don’t see it. Like Democracy, Womanhood must be vigilant 24/7.
From the first of us to ourselves we hold the hope our Mothers held, and we know more now. That is the point of us, our turn, in our time to expose and correct. We will make a way to give our Daughters a greater hope today than we were able yesterday. We must hurriedly gather with one another, acquire tools, knowledge and the right will to use it, Wisdom.
This day’s hope begins with now, just gaze into the eyes of the next Child you see… as you do so, scream in your heart’s silence “I Love You!”!
