‘Our genes have long been ballyhooed as either a death-sentence, or the Midas touch of genius, bestowing upon us pristine health and an agile mind, or the deterministic outcome of cancer, neurological disease, or various other birth ‘defects’, but what if there was something else helping to determine our fate? What if our genes were merely building blocks, and a greater intelligence was in charge of whether or not we can throw a basketball from the free throw line and get nothing but net every time, or die at the age of 46 like every other person in our family’s history, due to a genetic predisposition for cardiac arrest?
Genetic determinism is the idea that genes, to the exclusion of environment or the field of our awareness and experience, determine how an organism turns out. You could call it the extreme version of nature vs. nurture, wherein our DNA tells us everything about what something will be.’
‘The religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas throughout the United States—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars. Schools and libraries are closing. Unemployment and underemployment are chronic.
Our infrastructure is broken and decrepit. And we will have paid a crippling $4 trillion for the useless and futile wars we waged over the last 13 years in the Middle East. But the military remains as unassailable as Jesus, or, among those who have season tickets at Fenway Park, the Red Sox. The military is the repository of our honor and patriotism.
No public official dares criticize the armed forces or challenge their divine right to more than half of all the nation’s discretionary spending. And although we may be distrustful of government, the military—in the twisted logic of the American mind—is somehow separate.’
‘I am quite convinced that a directed attack against water is underway. It has been so for a number of years. The attack is not, as i first suspected, against those who depend upon specific waters for their lives, but rather, and to my horror, against the living consciousness of water itself.
i have observational details that are not pertinent this moment, nor do i have time to lay out those details, but suffice it to say, in my crazy old bald head, i have eliminated the impossible, and however improbable the conclusion, i am convinced that an attack against all of life is underway and it is now visible as the core of life here on terra, the living consciousness of water, is being assaulted globally. So far, water is holding its own, but…for how long?
Against this level of vision of the interplay of spiritual warfare here on terra, the appearance of reptilian hominids, or any variant, pales to merely ‘proxy beings’ at war much the way the USA zionist rulers used proxy states in their perpetual wars.’
‘Until we are born we don’t have any perception of existence riddling within us, we are lovingly thrust into birth by the biological frivolity of corporeal matter and witness the first moments in our life of purest expression.
As children we interact through experience and expression free of thought and any form of applied psychological conditioning. Our reactions are spontaneous responses to any action in our presence and not plagued with any latent feelings of carving or aversion we deal with, as we journey to what we are led to believe is growth.’
‘America is on the precipice of a fascist uprising. While liberals have consistently leveled the f-word against opponents on the right, much the same way conservatives have appropriated socialist or Marxist against those on the political left, there is now data showing that proto-fascist movements are on the rise.
The kindling for the fire of fascism has already been lit. While the Republican Party holds at least one branch of the federal government, America will never be able to deal intelligently and earnestly with the economic policies that have destroyed the working class and all but decimated the middle class. A GOP congress guarantees that Democratic efforts to raise the minimum wage, reform the tax code and repair our crumbling infrastructure will be thwarted, all in the name of protecting the rich from paying their fair share.’
‘Courts around the country are having more trouble prosecuting marijuana cases because of increasing awareness of a constitutional doctrine called jury nullification.
Under the Bill of Rights, jurors have the power to find a defendant not guilty if they find the law in question is flawed – even if the person being accused actually did smoke pot (or commit another victimless crime).
In his NY Times piece titled Jurors Need to Know That They Can Say No, Paul Butler explained the history and purpose of nullification:’
‘Tom Vilsack is the US Agriculture Secretary. In an attempt to support giant agritech and food corporations’ aims to eliminate all ‘unnecessary’ barriers to trade and investment between the US and EU via the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), Vilsack has stated in public that he wants “sound science” to underpin any rules governing food trade. On a visit to Brussels last month, he came out with the following statement:
“Science is a common language… we will be working towards making sure that whatever agreements are reached, they are consistent with sound science.”
However, it seems he is very selective in applying “sound science” to certain issues. Consumer rights groups in the US are pushing for the labelling of GMO foods, but Vilsack says that putting a label on a foodstuff containing a genetically modified product “risks sending a wrong impression that this was a safety issue.” It is highly convenient to parrot the slick PR claims of the powerful GMO biotech industry. Science does in fact show that GMOs are indeed a big safety issue and what’s more are also having grave environmental, social and economic consequences.’
‘Ever since the advent of the Neolithic Revolution some 10,000 years B.C., elements of mankind have increasingly strove to carve up, control and dominate the land, creating an increasingly stratified social hierarchy in which those at the top use force and coercion to dictate to the masses and ensure their subjugation.
Whether this has manifested itself as authoritarian dictatorships or the so-called “liberal democracies” of the modern world (a term which is rapidly losing any semblance of credibility in an age of corrupt, self-serving plutocracies), the essential dynamic has remained.’
‘At first they were little more than fleeting sightings of naked figures on the edge of the forest. But as the days went by, the men and boys grew bolder, venturing into the village to pilfer pots and vegetables before disappearing back into the safety of trees.
After they were first glimpsed by other people on the outskirts of an Asháninka indigenous community on the upper reaches of Brazil’s Envira River, “a few dozen” members of an unnamed Amazonian tribe finally made contact with a settled population 20 days ago. That came four years after a tribal group, reportedly from the same Amazonian tribe, were filmed from the air in 2010. When the images were released in January 2011, they created a worldwide sensation.’
