I’ve been writing since I got a pencil. I’ve used it to make a living, mostly, writing is a continuous gift to monitor my own inner life’s growth, to winnow through perspectives that are rutted in memorization and not experiential truth. I write seeking the essence of my human experience, to understand how ‘the world’ works and how I can work along with it. I’ve failed miserably, to date for this day. I give all credit for any truth and beauty arising from this screen to my Co-Creators; my Source and You!
Let us not be too ‘politically correct’, it bears witness to the mass mind manipulation in everything we hear, read and even tell ourselves resulting from immersion in propaganda mastered over scores of years and now censoring and criminalizing the only voices heard among the cries of those who are now as I am.
All The Time.
Hungry most nights.
Anxious as regularly as a clock keeps time.
And waiting for the bombs to fall with each loud bang or small earthquake…
Or am I waiting for the bombs to stop dropping? What am I waiting for? Or waiting to do? And why can’t I see through this dark veil of isolation from reality? Is the Deep State that completely in charge of our Minds?
And I feel Alone!
All I hear when I peek out from under my sick bed is how people condemn each other, verbally rape women and girls and sometimes not just verbally! America killing Americans, in rage, hate, madly insane by ideologies so dark we can only look upon these people and their unbridled violence with horror and shock, as is natural when we are faced with such an H.P. Lovecraft reality.
I’m quite sure we all have PTSD after 18 years under the Neo-Nazi Dark State and their Corporate Overlords…..then the True Blues showed up as another branch of the neo Nazis of America. At least, that’s what has happened, it is done. There is no “maybe”. “seems”, “will be”…..no, it’s already done, and we lost our Constitutional Republic.
Who’s “We”? YOU and ME! Who else matters? The Elite? Oh, they only matter because they are holding a line against securing our Planet’s life and ability to support all other life. Isn’t life left on Earth right now the only Life that matters? As our Planetary Mother is concerned with the protection of her Children, and her Children with the welfare of their Mother, the Elite cannot be reckoned into our future, in any way, ever again, or all will be a final and eternal loss.
If we continue in the false reality of the Elite, we will not be here to help each other or our Mother Earth mitigate the throes of suffering that is being brought down upon us to the last living being…
Think about it… the real end! And it appears most of us aren’t able to accept the fundamental reality we ALL MUST DIE, we resist the fact we are Mortal. How can we possibly accept the responsibility to LIVE, if we are already the walking dead?
What I know is, I trust our Youth, like I trusted me and us when we were in their position. We worked hard, made gains, and got sooo f#%’d up in the mirage, just like always, we forgot our duty to the future. Not this time, let us rise again, older, maybe even dumber, but willing to surrender our all for the life of our Grandchildren, our Species, for a child of our Future to look upon a Whale, an Elephant, Dolphin, Golden Toad (oops, he was one of the first to go in the 70’s I believe). Just one child, 1,000 years from now, kissing a Dolphin… because we Fought Back!
I began working on this some time ago… as a Poet, I am very sensitive to Language and the use of Words; Poetry demands an honesty not often found in Prose, therefore I find myself naturally uncomfortable with this style of writing. However, it is ultimately clear in this unending trauma of American Political Torture Seasons that some education still must be disseminated. So I step out once again, and revise this piece until it has all the truth that I am able to set before you, it includes my opinions based on my study, observation, value system and intimate professional experience of the nature of individuals in the Halls of Power and those which parade themselves to our displeasure, hope, hate, and mostly fear every Federal Election Cycle. This is a Birthday present to you, who have supported me on Social Media (Twitter) for these past years of a forced internment due to illness. Be kind, for this is my kindness in turn…
Prose to me is like whittling … you start with a great piece of wood and pull out your pocket knife, bounce the blade off the wood a few times and decide this is a Bear…you start whittlin’ and discover you got yourself a Polecat instead! Here’s my ‘Polecat’. …it kinda speaks for itself….
There is a fundamental deal breaker for Democracy under the current United States Constitution. Okay, there’s a lot… and they all speak to the fact that Democracy is not even close to being fulfilled in the United States. WeThePeople do not elect the President or Vice President…the Electoral College consisting of a majority vote of only 270 electors appoints their winners. Perhaps the Supreme Court will stay out of it now their Mob Bosses are the same and their godfather is dead. It’s important we keep in mind we must accept a President and Vice President from a single political party. We get a choice of nothing. In our despair we steel ourselves for the next onslaught of Political horrors by our ruling Monsters. Our vote is used as proof positive we are Democratic and Politicians were elected Democratically! We have discovered that absolutely none of this is true. All we can see, if we looked up, are politicians, attorneys and the Corporate Fascist Elite, again and again destroying all for fiat currency and some megalomaniacal sense of ‘pride in ownership’ of everything. Some of our forefathers were indeed sincere in this impossible dream of Democratic Self Governance, the rest were just rich or wannabee failed white male aristocrats afraid of us rabble. Jefferson knew that half measures avail men nothing and he made it clear that you and I would know that too, in time. Jefferson put his egalitarian dream in our hands and in our generations to make the appropriate changes required toward a More Perfect Union; unto and expressly through Revolution.
It’s time to throw away the half measures by men of the past and present and begin a full fledged dive into DEMOCRACY! Revolt, don’t keep vomiting out your disgust and revulsion on everyone, direct it. The Politicians did this. WeThePeople get a team of 2 mediocre minds of the same ideology… say we believe our votes count, we still can’t ‘un-know’ the fact that they don’t. Ever in obedience to the commandment for peaceful transitions of power, we bow down again, more from shame and exhaustion than even fear of the coming pain. Best WeThePeople can hope for is the Electoral College votes are in line with our Human Citizens’ penny votes…knowing no matter what, the pain will come, if not for you, for someone you know. This said, understand that ‘majority wisdom’ is non-existent on the Federal political stage as anything other than fuel for Propaganda as is obvious by this process. Nor is our Majority Wisdom considered in most, if any, of these actual communities of power. We get who they want, exclusively; and they get us to take the blame and pay for the privileged! Forgive me my humor, but that is actually very very funny! LOL kinda of funny. Think about it. Even fools can laugh at themselves.
Recall the “More Perfect Union”? Remember that “Great Experiment”? NO?! As I’ve long feared, none of us have been appropriately vigilant towards a more Perfect Union, let alone bringing about full Direct Democracy within the United States Government under this Constitution. The lack of ratification of the ERA is a single humiliating FACT that stands as indictment of every Federal and State Legislator sworn into Office since 1923! Yes, including the States who did ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, as they gained political kudos without giving anything of real value to Americans as a People in return. It is of great interest to me that in one fell swoop, also known as the American coup d’état, the Supreme Court sold we Human Citizens of the United States as a ‘Lot of Slaves’ to Corporate Fascists with ‘Citizens United’. Who knew their activism was so virulent? With non-human billion, trillion dollars being our newest Immigrant Citizens…Voilà, Fascism stands as the last coffin-nail in this Great Experiment! Reverent appreciation to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for courageously holding the line for application of the “Spirit” of the Law, not only the “Letter”.
The foundation of Leaders has been the same since 1443 B.C. culminating in strategy with “Saul killed his thousands, David his 10s of Thousands” between 1025 B.C. and 965 B.C. (The story begins in 1 Samuel 8, Torah & Bible). And so remains the requirement of leading people who desire to be led by vanquishing those who do not. All one must do is assassinate their rivals then kill and feed their armies from the spoils of the murdered. Such is the fate of all Peoples to this day, willing and especially unwilling.
Fascism is now the accepted and expected form of Governing within this system of complete Institutionalized Corruption….frankly People, we need to get off our high horses. There are European Nations who hold Direct Democratic elections, and the contenders take their places according to the votes the People cast, and still, with the boot of American Capitalists on their necks with their own US Military War Machine, they too have lost their hard-won battle against Fascism. Americans systemically want to believe what IS cannot be “here” so we haven’t even tried!
Politicians have taught us well by using the Koch brothers influence to “re-educate” Americans from pre-School through University. Such are the politicians and Justices sucking on the Corporate-Sugar-tit. This corrupted government uses our pseudo votes to continue to legitimize the Ruling Elite’s Global War Crimes in your name and mine. These Fascists show contemptuous disregard for Human Citizens as they and their mob bosses laugh about some odd 47% percent of us they reckon won’t be left after their global culling of our Species.
Americans know who has the will and weapons to murder us and it’s not who the propagandists focus our attention upon. They have us at each others throats; like Forbes Fighting Cocks …light entertainment for their wealthy readers. You should have seen their first article some years back about a holiday for Elite Graduates vacationing in the Philippines enjoying the ‘exotic sport’ of Cock Fighting (without gloves)! Police Departments, State/ Federal Government agencies and their minions take every opportunity to murder us. They shoot dead our children as they walk on their own streets; even you, as we ask you for help at your front door! We carry signs of compassion crying out for mercy and peace and are killed, maimed and imprisoned. We are criminalized as terrorists…under Fascist legislation! This is how Politicians respond to our families, friends and communities devastated of vital resources with legalized Death Squads targeting our children. Politicians did this!
On the Main Streets of the USA to the desserts of far away lands, WeThePeople intuit they will kill as many of us as they please, any where, any time in any manner they please. I assure you, with breakneck speed and ‘for our own ‘safety’, they will lock the rest of us up in US Corporate Prisons. America likes to “go for the Gold” you know; like the largest prisoner population on Planet Earth! Why am I not proud of that?! In dungeons, even fools find no humor! Corporate Prison Citizens need to be constantly fed and guaranteed full occupancy paid for with our taxes and our children’s bodies. Very soon they’ll keep our own retirement funds [Social Security] to pay themselves. We’ll be lucky to afford the one meal a day most can, while working for our jailers at a few pennies a day. Bread, water and forced shelter – no release date. Remember folks, we are deeply ingrained into this Fascism. Look what we do to people coming via our Southern Border, can we really expect better, now that WeThePeople don’t count at all? Have you noticed the quickening of planned dismantling of our most needed resources, like food, water, medicine etc.? We do hold the blame, yet the politicians did this all the while protesting duress because of a Treaty they gleefully signed! By the act of our vote, ruling elites usurp Humanity’s right to itself along with our right and access to Life, Liberty and our own Trust Funds; all without having to count WeThePeoples’ vote! Remember We don’t vote for the Executive Branch….come to think of it, we don’t vote for Justices either….this is what we must face.
Our personal and common properties bear all the wealth of a Country and a whole People. All of this Wealth, including what you drive and what you live in is transferred to Corporate Citizens under vicioustradeagreements. Everything we need to survive for more than three days they legislate the rights to themselves. How can we stand against such a behemoth as never we saw before? They hide behind Fascist Freedom named legislation or hide their theft in reams of a big Bill never read. They kill us with our own money; and everybody else, too. We all share our collective karma for the murder and horror that has encapsulated the Globe… Never forget, we couldn’t have pulled this catastrophe off without our Corporate-Sugar-tit-sucking Politicians!
Finally, for me, it’s NO CONFIDENCE…never mind the “Candidate”. There’s only 3 ways to live w/systemic corruption; as a slave, as a minion, or as the ENEMY of Corruption. Here is an empiric truth we ignore as it is only measured in “remembered experience’…You can nevercooperate with Corruption…only fall victim to it.
In all of this research and personal experience I have now come to the only honest thing I can do to honour myself, my generations and you; cast a Vote of No Confidence! My Second most honest vote will be for Anonymous. There is only one way we can show each other, the world, and our Politicians that their insanity ends now. I refuse to be defiled again by their obscene and decadent Political Theatre. I will not throw my vote away on Politicians, no matter the Billions spent by Billionaire Gamblers all over the world! We can and must bring down the most powerful Pillar of Corporate and Political Fascism the world has ever seen. We’re clever, we exported Democracy around the World, we all know that Democracy only exists when a human citizen casts a vote at the Ballot Box and it is legitimately counted.
Why do we continue to tolerate this Half-life Democracy in the United States? Why do we pay for the Politicians and Corporate Citizens making murderous fortunes on our Good Names? Like I said, we don’t get a vote for the Leaders of the Free World, it could have no other outcome but what we are experiencing….Jefferson knew this. What Jefferson didn’t know, is just how evil this empire would become…do WeThePeople hate ourselves more than we do our corrupted Political System? Is this the end of our Great Experiment, or with a new Constitution in hand, is this the beginning?
WHO DO YOU REALLY TRUST?
Just think about it….what, my dearest Fellow American, is your very first primitive responses to the word and sound of “politician”? … There, you have your answer.
Respectfully and compassionately,
on the Isle of Cyclopes
I submit the following:
How does a Poet write their Poems? This day, this time…
when before all Poets could sing of the beauty and purity of our Manifest God? That is no more………
No more can we write words of truth that always were… like
“The Ocean is your God-self; it remains for-ever undefiled.” (Khalil Gabran, THE PROPHET)
What but tragedy can the Poet extol in this time…
now the Oceans are spoiled? …our god-selves nearly extinguished with sounds and poisons… plastics and CO2 changing Life to acid?
My Oceans, my Oceans, you alone have held my tearful torrents! Now I’ve not a tear to help you heal!
We’ve decided to dance no more….
allowing the rich to pillage the world we and our ancestors bore…
with breakneck speed killing ALL for …..MORE…!
….Or have we?…….forgotten how to Dance?

I’ve long wanted to write and share my thoughts on the terminal Cancer of Elite Rule…it just always seems to be rather useless! Every day in every way, instead of our Species getting “better and better” we are bombarded with Propaganda in every media source, old and new, to make us afraid, Very Afraid. Its long been the adage of “bad guys”, from Bible times to old Westerns and Wall Street Wolves and their Bankster Gangsters, “If you can’t get them to join you by appealing to their greed and need, dominate them by fear.” Remember that? … use to be a “moral” lesson we learned so as not to fall into such insipid slavery. “NOW GREED IS GOD”, yes, “God”, not just GOOD! Wow!
Such a turn in the Human consciousness requires a phenomenon that we of the non-elite almost never share…until now. What could possibly have changed so dramatically and quickly to take a healthy man, woman and child from the joy of doing “right” by themselves, their families and their neighbors to trembling in fear with their doors locked; electronic surveillance watching every entrance with touch ready monitoring of their humble abode filled with generations of treasure and maybe a child or pet or two? What causes normal people not in a war zone (there are still many of us) to close our drapes and peek “outside” our windows at who is on the street or what is happening in the house whose drapes aren’t closed; trembling in what once was the anticipation of coming together with friends and family and neighbors in good humor and sharing? Now we are filled with anxiety and a sense of threat from every house, of every person who dares to think of themselves as FREE and not subject to others’ judgement, especially our own, we “observers”. Wondering how they deem themselves to be so FREE that they are actually “out in the streets”; taking walks with their children, dogs or pushing infants in strollers or carrying signs declaring our Humanity and Compassion? And “OMG” they don’t LOOK LIKE US! Whatever the hell that ever meant, since we are each unique and wondrously original and in FACT, NO BODY LOOKS LIKE YOU OR ME!! Except of course the proverbial Identical Twins…and such twins just look like one another!
What indeed…causes a person to monitor another’s resources so closely as to be able and even willing to report their neighbor if asked by the Water District or “Home Inspectors” (who come in many guises of Authority) to do so? What “motivates” any individual to pick up a phone intimating wrongdoing on another’s part, to talk to an absolute stranger about the personal goings on of someone that could be known to them for decades or not at all?
When’s the last time you heard and saw children playing outside of their own fenced-in backyards, all a twitter with joy and activity, sweet squeals of delight or feigned fright? Now I hear screams, not squeals, and real fear, not pretend and I cannot see the injured to tend to their fear, for all are injured, adults and children. Mostly I wonder at the ice cream truck! As an American capitalist well indoctrinated, I wonder how long we’ll have that corny old music playing as the driver comes up our street, after all there are no more children bustling out of their front doors with hard earned allowances in hand, excitedly positioning themselves to insure they are to get their favorite treat. I have seen one child, held onto as if in bondage by one parent with dollars in hand. Where is the joy?
Where indeed? We are assured of a significantly shortened life span along with the generations now in our care. Stress kills. What is the cause of our melancholy lives, our anxious, depressed children….?
What indeed? Even if you do choose the once comfortable stance of following Authority, you are convinced everyone is watching you as well, or perhaps you deem yourself the only one who can really rout out any “suspected…….” just fill in the blank, water waster to terrorist or any fearful troll you may imagine. But then, if by some miracle, reason still persists, you have to question your own judgement on occasion. Do you really know? Could anyone know that about you? Likely not. Or perhaps you are one who walks in the world Freely, with kindness and charity; what then do you do when you have been “found out” and “reported” by the neighbor who still has your tools or your Tupperware? How do you deal with being Free and yet enslaved by the agenda of another enslaved by Phantom Fear? Either way, where is the Joy? What happened to us?
What indeed……? Have you wondered? What indeed…. has sucked out the life generating Joy that once was our way of Life, our way of caring for each other and ourselves, of trusting strangers and Policemen…..?
What indeed?! Our stories have always told us that it is love and kindness; tolerance and intelligence that drives individuals to advancement and thereby the society they form… you know; contribution, cooperation….PEACE AND LOVE BOUND BY REASON!
For so long a time, years now, Pain has been My Closest Companion.
I’ve not been able to “Fight” Pain; or Pray, Cry or Demand it to “Be Gone!”
Finally! I’ve Accepted it for this moment, and the next….
as my Closest and most Faithful Companion.
I Could Banish Pain. I Would Banish it, even the Cause of it!
…I Cannot..so we’ve become Friends of Necessity.
Comrades of Suffering, Ever Present with one another.
Do you think me Insane to accept such a “Terrible Alliance”?
No, I am not. Not any longer, now I’ve given up the Fruitless Battle.
You see, there is much Goodness that could End my Pain and it’s Cause.
Yet, Woe am I to live in a Society where Only the Rich can Own and Claim such Goodness….. For Themselves…
….and They only Share on a Whim of Self Gratification called PROFIT.
“An enslaved human, on behalf of their Enslaver asks, “Is it LEGAL?” A Free Human with Natural Compassionate response to Suffering asks, “Is it RIGHT!?” Anonymous; paraphrased by ‘Nobody’ living on the Isle of Cyclops
“Congress approached the 2006 reauthorization of the VRA
with great care and seriousness. The same cannot be said of the Court’s
opinion today. The Court makes no genuine attempt to engage with the
massive legislative record that Congress assembled. Instead, it relies
on increases in voter registration and turnout as if that were the whole
story. See supra, at 18–19. Without even identifying a standard of
review, the Court dismissively brushes off arguments based on “data from
the record,” and declines to enter the “debat[e about] what [the]
record shows” … One would expect more from an opinion striking at the
heart of the Nation’s signal piece of civil-rights legislation.”
It is June, 2013, and #PTSDAwarenessMonth. One would think everyone would know about Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome by now….after all, we’ve been at War for over 10 years and counting. We’ve been at war a lot longer than we knew as the history of our Nation’s secret wars are still coming to light and our leaders reckless disregard for human life is front and center everyday in Independent Free Media. #PTSD is not the exclusive realm of those brutalized by war, fighting it or victim of it, it is now the property of every human being alive. The unthinkable losses that are being felt from Globalization of corrupt and irresponsible Corporate entities (in the United States we call them “Citizens”) and their Political cronies have reached into the depths of every society and tribe in the world. With Co2 reaching 400 ppms, the glaciers melting at breakneck speed, which is very fast for glaciers, and the added threat of annihilation of all life on Earth, we know in our hearts that the intentional slaughter of everything from indigenous Peoples to wolves, whales, dolphins and food sources around the world is doom for not just their species, but our own.
And there is War, un-winnable, perpetual WAR. The remarkable stupidity of the World’s ruling elite is dizzying, and it is left up to those of us who have always been nothing more than fodder for that small segment of Society to come together with more than demands, but action of our own to aid one another in slowing the demise of our beloved and only home, Mother Earth. Yet, we are War Weary, we are lost in the demise of a Society that was doomed before it ever had the chance to fulfill it’s promises to itself let alone to our Children. That is for another entry, another “Poem”, another ” Soul Offering”.
It is June, 2013, and #PTSD Awareness Month. I place the hash tag for the benefit of my Twitter friends who are the ones who made me aware of this Month’s focus, and for your use, so you may be made aware of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. For an epidemic disorder, little is known about it, even by those who suffer this devastating result of life in the realm of the Ruling Elite, of Patriarchal Autocrats. Perhaps this offering can touch some of you who, like us all, know we are alone in the Society imagined in our collective consciousness, but are all to numerous in the reality of the Society that is. For others, it’s a depth of isolation that you will not be able to touch in your Spirit, but perhaps your heart will cry out at the outrage of such profound, lifelong suffering.
The pain in spirit befuddles my mind,
thoughts of my actions, humiliation, not humility fear not confidence, shame not forgiveness
Turning and turning the offending behaviour in my mind’s eye
stabbing my heart and my pride
fear of loss….
time in anguish sensing some great loss
Why does this hurt so deeply?
Oh, Loss, the Fourth Step
All fear comes from fear of loss…
Loss of What?
In my pain, I cannot guess or think or imagine
The picture of myself, in those moments of unconscious behaviour
Oh, that painful, humiliating act by mouth or movement…
It is only me, looking at myself, wondering how on earth
Did I Not Know Better!?!?
Was I tired? sick? in pain? or just crazy again? Again…
Again caught in the insidious web of my own insanity, so far removed…
Fear of Loss?
The loss of myself, Again….
This fragile mind so secure in its propriety, its found sanity…
How dare it raise its head in public!!??!!
Oh, the struggle to rest, to sleep.
My incriminating shame tearing at my consciousness as a wolf devours its prey,
blood dripping and bones gnawed….
such a fate preferred over this suffering.
No, this is not new…this is my companion, the bane of my life….
But I have not time now. I must face the world of people again, Oh, No!
Please! Please don’t let me slip into that same place!
Not now! Please! I could not bear it so soon again!
Oh, must I go, must I do anything but sit here, lay there,
pace where there is space to do so….
If this pain could bring tears, I would cry, I cannot.
If this pain could be healed, I would run to the Healer, I will not.
If this pain could be coddled, I would crawl into the arms of….?
but who can comfort me? None, none here, none now.
I can’t forgive myself, as the images torment my mind and my heart and my spirit.
I can’t see anything but my ignorance.
I dare not think too long on how others must have perceived me,
to do so fills me with dread and impending doom,
permeating my whole being, causing a collapse in and out of myself
I have become ill, debilitated with this pain, fear
fear of loss…. of what?
I cannot find a place of acceptance for myself
there is no where for me to go with this nightmare
I must wash it from within……how?
By knowing what the fear is, the loss is?
Coming face to face with my own ignorance is not a bad thing….
fertile ground for Spiritual growth…
but me, I just fall into the darkness, face to face with my Black Wolf.
We stare at each other…once again…sizing up
Who will be victor this time?
I am hopeful of a full recovery, for as the pain works within me
I shed, once again, more of my ignorance…
Now knowing my fear….
That “I” should be victor,
That my Wolf would not….

I have been and am many things, including being extremely curious about others’ trans-formative experiences. First I am an insatiable Bibliophile. Have been since the first time I held a book in my hands! Then they gave me paper without words on it and a pencil. My next longest state of being began, writing.
Primarily I’m a poet. Some poets commit every word penned to tongue’s tip, in explanation of the Poem. That’s not me. It isn’t in the words we speak that the communication exists with this poet, it is in the words I write. It is the shared communion with my Creator.It is in the poet’s inspired poetry that everyone, at once and alone, can glimpse something inside of themselves that is at the same time in each and every one of us. I know that the Human is spurred by what moves their heart; Truth and Beauty.
I, of course, welcome this medium to share my poetry, but that’s not my motive in writing this blog. It is Election 2012, undeniably the most important Election of the 21st Century; I dare say that our individual and collective actions today will certainly be felt throughout the rest of Human History. We are bringing about a world order that has only been dreamed of by good and ill, in bits and pieces throughout our modern history. Most of us are lost in a maze of unreliable misinformation; our “system” has failed and we are angry, frustrated, distrustful and resentful; even worse, vindictive! Mostly just hurt and afraid.
If you are under 21, I’m so sorry. I’m sorry for the world you have grown up in. Ours was a lot better, and it was pretty bad. You have so much to catch up on, we haven’t told you the history of You yet, but you must learn it, as it will be the foundation you build your own personal and generational history upon. Ask questions, and learn to discern the motives of those offering their hand. As we say, “Question Authority” all the time, in every Time, no matter if the “authority” is you. Teach your children, don’t fail them like we did you; by my standards anyway.
What I do know is you are one person, like me, sitting in silence with this creation, and I am humbled just thinking about you, having captured your attention for a moment. I have to admit, I’d love to know some of your Brilliant Ideas!

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!”!
