Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Launching a Movement

Transcending the Political

The next steps:
Essential maneuvers to forestall Armageddon

John Kaminski writes about the American mindset:
"When you willingly and happily participate in a program meant to deceive and destroy you, it is doubly difficult to first realize and second to admit you've been had."

For those of us who know we've been had, he offers the following solutions:

1.) Capture Control of the Currency
At present, more than 90 percent of the world's wealth, in a world of six billion people, is controlled by less than 10,000 individuals,

2.) Identify the Real Power Structure
He writes: If you think George Bush or Dick Cheney is running the show, then you are woefully undereducated.
...Certainly supporting Dennis Kucinich didn't get us very far, did it?"

Dennis may have been the voice of the people but he isn't part of the Real Power Structure. See quotes from Dennis Kucinich on Iraq over the last year. Dennis was right across the board. Tell me again why this wisdom was ’unelectable’.

Tell me why the DLC and the DNC disgust me so. I frankly just don't care what they do. I'm tired of trying to get them to listen. It's a lost cause. That's why I keep saying it's time to ignore the government. Get out of our way!

3.) Shut down the government NOW, before we no longer have a chance to do it all.
And he then explains why that won't happen with excerpts from "They Thought They Were Free." ...chillingly appropriate for the situation in America today.

Read Kaminski's article, feel the urgency, and let's make our own plans. This is still a government 'of, by and for the people' but it is not serving us.

Seriously, when the White House, well known for putting faith front and center, is reportedly at work on a contingency plan spelling out how to run the country in the event that President Bush and other top-ranking Christians are 'raptured', are you feeling served? Please let them be raptured, today! I don't need to explain why that won't happen. It's a nice thought anyway.

Dave Pollard writes: "So what? We have the knowledge, and the numbers, to take back this world from the neocons before it careens completely out of control, that's what."

"What we need is much more than just a brand and a political party. What we need is a Green Movement. Today, the candidates and executives of the Green Party are preoccupied with getting elected, and in countries where that is feasible, that's fine. In every country, however, we in the Green Movement have more urgent tasks than glad-handing electors. Here's a first crack at an Agenda, a Manifesto for the Movement:"

Go read it, give him input. I can't find a thing in it that I think even most conservatives would object to except the name. I'm afraid 'Green' in the United States is associated with leftist fringe in far too many minds and I don't see that being reversed. I do see the Manifesto as being a very useful tool for change if enough buzz is generated. I can envision the Progressive Democrats of America sponsoring it. It is said that Dennis Kucinich sparked a movement with his candidacy. We can continue it. It is time to transcend the political. We know what has to be done and we know it needs to be done on a global scale. Inaction with no direction is killing my spirit.
