There is no force for change on this planet more potent than one based on a moral issue. Moral issues cross all the boundaries of faith, political philosophy or race in which we may differ. The most powerful movement this planet has ever seen, a ground swell ethical revolution around the world is in progress!
Terrorism is mutual suffering. Non-government organizations (NGOs) in unprecedented numbers worldwide are calling for de-nuclearization, de-miltarization, economic justice and responsible corporate behavior. They know education and the nonviolent path are key to make this sea change in our behavior that will save and sustain life as we know it.
'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them," - Albert Einstein
Business is not inherently evil. Consumers,
we the people, have the power to put
corporations out of business that do not behave ethically and show great
concern about their impact on the community and environment! Stop patronizing
them, refuse to buy what they are selling! The free market is a
more powerful and efficient regulator than government.
Currently corporations run governments and the media, so how is that different from state run media? After 911 the military was coming up with a name for their attack on Iraq. Their first thought was Operation Iraqi Liberation but the OIL acronym was too close to revealing the true nature of their evil agenda.
They went for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Some networks made up logos of OIF to promote and manufacture consent for war. NBC is owned by GE, one of the biggest weapons manufacturers so no surprise there. Most Americans, had they been asked, would NOT have wanted the killing of innocents to avenge the killing of innocents.
The web has enormous potential for exposing truth, forcing major news media to become the real watchdogs they are meant to be instead of government/corporate propaganda machines. It is the fastest growing communications medium in the history of the world. A powerful tool, a window of opportunity, in our war of good over evil; the Internet continues to revolutionize the way we communicate and has enormous potential for reshaping the political process.
When ethics rule with modern unbiased, science based statistical reporting our worries are over. We can see where our laws are causing more harm than good and change accordingly. Empirical statistical evidence strongly shows that a republic (the American form of government.) leads to less internal violence and democide. Democide is a term coined by political scientist R. J. Rummel in his book, DEATH by GOVERNMENT to describe "the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder."
In Basorah, childhood cancer and birth defects have increased 5 times above normal levels because of nuclear weapons used by the American military. Be frightened but be brave and join the fight to stop this insanity! Make war and violence archaic, create a world our children will be proud to inherit!.
"The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe." - Einstein, again.
The SPIRIT of 1776 was the HOLY SPIRIT and is our TRUE NORTH! The American dream is, for the power of love to overcome the love of power. We will overcome! "Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!" - Susan B. Anthony
Everyone wants to feel safe; to live without fear. Kind parents want that for their children. Most people solve their problems without violence. Ethical governments work toward that goal using arbitration and diplomacy.
We can be brave and end the terror by changing our intrusive, big-bully policies, both foreign and domestic. The monetary and environmental costs are staggering and the human suffering unconscionable. Take action now join the Campaign For Liberty!
Most of us want to feel that we are doing good; having a positive impact. Some think of it as being on the side of right; being on God's side. Remember, "God loves everyone," but probably prefers fruits of the spirit over religious nuts!
Investors can make a great difference by bringing their investments in line with their personal values and ethics. Refuse to invest in corporations that do not behave ethically; insist your investments' impact on the community and environment be a positive one! Alert corporate CEOs that endearing their business to the community and the world is in their own self-interest.
After all, the only real wealth is well being and happiness. We, the nonviolent members of the pro-better-world society, far out number the violent evil doers. Get tough on violent crime! Take away violent offenders' ability to reproduce. Aggressive behavior can be bred out of us as it has been done in dogs. We shall overcome the violent and inherit the earth.
Taking care of this planet, making an effort to repair any damage we have caused is key to our survival. Plants made the earth's habitat ready to support higher life forms. Ecologically speaking the earth is in crisis.
We can replant the earth with community and individual gardens full of not only fresher, more tasty fruits and vegetables but with all the medicinal, healing plants. See the world as a garden of healing as it once was and teach by example. Coming soon if we don't put our foot down, the food police!
This is the worst of times for some, but getting involved in our revolution to help create better lifestyles, ethical business practices plus evolve into a more sustainable environment, makes it the best of times, an exciting time, to be alive.
"You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war." Einstein did not need to be a genius to figure that out.
Dennis Kucinich (D, Ohio) has introduced a bill to create a Department of Peace making nonviolence our organizing policy and dedicating ourselves to "peaceful coexistence, consensus building, disarmament, and respect for international treaties." Violence and war are not inevitable; nonviolence and peace are imperative if we are to survive! "Failure is impossible," - Susan B, again.
Speaking Freely, John Perkins' exposes America's involvement in destabilizing the economies of poor countries around the world. "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man", spent over 70 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and is published in more than 30 languages. His follow-up, "The Secret History of the American Empire," provides a plan for creating a sustainable, just, and peaceful world.
Marijuana is safer than alcohol or tobacco. So why are we driving people to drink? It is downright sinister, a crime against humanity for the medicinal uses of cannabis to be suppressed. Scientists have discovered that one of Bob Dylan's most famous lines, "everybody must get stoned," tells it like it is. They have found that our brains manufacture proteins (canabinoids) that act like marijuana (THC) at specific receptors in the brain itself..
Cannabis oil is the cure all our ancestors used and did not let us all be brainwashed into forgetting. Some scientists speculate that cannabinoids play a protective role in the brain, slowing the rate of disease.
The president repeatedly said that science should trump politics and also acknowledged that marijuana can be an effective medicine during his campaign for election. Our job is to hold the White House and its appointees accountable; to fulfill the promises made and to ensure that the lies and propaganda about the drug war become a thing of the past. Contact Mr. "Big Change" Obama and ask him to make it clear to his new Czar he must abandon the falsehoods and rhetoric of the past because politics will no longer trump science when it comes to medical marijuana.
Is Obama aware of the
history of failure that marks our drug war in Latin America? Mexico
has legalized possession of small amounts of drugs. They are still going
after dealers so it is really just continuing policy as usual.
Paramilitary drug raids increase the chances for violence to occur in America's homes and streets. "Drug prohibition causes more pain, suffering and death than the drugs themselves." Cries Howard Wooldridge of LEAP, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. Watch the LEAP video, "End Prohibition Now!"
The DPA Reform Conference 2009 will be held November 12-14 in Albuquerque, NM. Help continue the unprecedented momentum toward positive change. "The energy of this gathering is like no other. You will meet people who challenge you, who inspire you and who could be partners in your reform efforts. Register now to attend the Reform Conference and experience all of this in person. Thanks for all you do," Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director - Drug Policy Alliance.
Changing who's in charge will not affect much. The real cause of this huge quagmire of failed policy is the beast, big government, that money hungry beast, Uncle Sam! Ma Freedom tells it like it is! The beauty of it is when we focus on down-sizing our government we regain our roots of self-government and secure the blessings of liberty for future generations and ourselves.
