Law As A Weapon

law as a weapon

Walking to the office I laughed at the myth that governments are by or for the people. Looking back to the days of the Vikings, the so called age of discovery, colonialism, imperialism, the BIG Lies that resulted in the rape for oil of Iraq and Libya, the planned turning of the ‘war on terror’ on the people, full body airport scanning, GPS tracking of every phone, every email, the militarization of local police – can anyone in their right mind believe all this is by and for the people? Totalitarian systems always begin by rewriting the law. CA Bill 2109, for example, masquerading as a vaccine safety issue. It is not.

“This bill, if passed, would require parents to obtain the signature of a “health care practitioner” for a personal beliefs/religious exemption. MDs, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants can sign. Naturopaths and chiropractors cannot.”

This is a constitutional issue - a de facto negation of the Bill of Rights, forcing parents to get PERMISSION to opt out of a voluntary medical procedure by asking a doctor if it's OK not to choose a controversial medical procedure like vaccines, which the manufacturers themselves admit is dangerous. And they are....

Dr Blaylock - Why Vaccines Are Not Safe

Having realized in the past 2 years that they are losing the debate on vaccine safety, organized medicine has taken a completely different tack: outlaw the debate itself. Don't debate: Legislate.

The Importance of Hugging

Compassion? Wisdom?
Sorry, no one by that name lives here...

My son recently graduated from college. He could have been one of these UC Davis students. The well fed skin-head on the right is the riot clad officer hosing our children with pepper spray as they sit, Gandhi style, arm in arm, nonviolently. This act, not by students but by our friend the civil mercenary, and others like it around the world (see below), rips the thin skin of civility off our eyes. Serving and protecting, yes, but who and what? Watching his unaffected cruelty, like food poisoning, vomits up the question, How could he do such a thing?

In 1981 when a friend was nearly raped and murdered by a stalking stranger I asked the same question, Why would a man do such a thing? How can a man who supposedly loves his wife beat her so violently it caused brain damage? Or a coach, scream at an eight year old for dropping a ball? Violence is so easy, so natural. Or is it?

The emanate loss of parent consent in the care, treatment and education of their children – and our recent newsletter…

I love social media (sometimes) because it helps us see that we are not alone and crazy. Others are as concerned as we are. What we need to do, each and every one is to pick a cause, get upset and get involved. Each of us must become pro-activists, passionate and skilled at creating nonviolently the world we know is possible, one driven not by books, religious-political propaganda and dogma, not by fear and greed, by the flowering of innate human kindness, creativity and values.

Regarding our recient newsletter:

Sarah Palin, Political Conservatism And The Axis Of Violence

The essay on my BLOG, titled Sarah Palin Stokes The Fire Of The U.S. Culture of Violence describes how the dimension of Political Conservatism becomes aligned with Violence and Political Liberalism with Non-Violence. https://ttfuture.org/blog/1181 and at

Paul Krugman has noted that there are Two Public Moralities, which reflect the Two Americas that have existed since the days of our Founding Fathers.

There Is No Business Like Show Business

It is amazing that it takes an assassination and senseless mass murder to rile tolerant people. What follows are excerpts from today’s Climate of Hate by New York Times op-ed columnist Paul Krugman.

As David Frum, the former Bush speechwriter, has put it, “Republicans originally thought that Fox worked for us and now we’re discovering we work for Fox.”

Please understand – if there wasn’t an egger market for violence it would not appear in the script. While in India I discovered that at least one rape in most films was mandatory. Joseph Chilton Pearce was to be a consultant on children’s TV programming until the sponsor insisted on a steady stream of violence or there would be no show! That’s show business.

To the Editor of Fast Company, Anya Kamenetz, the author, and Paul Kim, CTO, Stanford University School of Education, quoted on the cover.

Just look at Eliana and Germma Singer on the cover, both age three – so cool, so hip, learning their ABCs on the iPhone - the next Technopolitan cover girls. Next to them bold – red “The Real Smart Phone Revolution, How Tech Is Making Kids Smarter Everywhere.”

Sirs and madam, technology cannot and does not make kids smarter. Nothing can be further from the truth. Intelligence is innate, not learned or accumulated, and universally present in every cell of the body and all of nature. To suggest that an iPhone will improve this vast innate intelligence is dehumanizing. How dare you? 1, 2

The Supreme Court and You

mendizzaAs you know, yesterday the Supreme Court shredded campaign finance laws and lifted corporate spending restrictions. The reasons I believe everyone should be concerned about this dramatic act, the latest in a very long and continuing pattern, are best described by two people I respect: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Jerry Mander, author of The Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television, In the Absence of the Sacred and A Case Against Globalization.
