A Look At Freedom's Currents

A Look At Freedom's Currents
Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others. . .they send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy

21st Century's Priority One

1) Implementation of: The Promise of New Energy Systems & Beyond Oil ___________________________________________ #1 Disolves the Problem of the ill designed "Corporism: The Systemic Disease that Destroys Civilization." through simple scientific common sense ___________________________________________ _________ Using grade school physics of both Newtonian and Nuclear models, does anyone foresee counter currents of sufficient size to minimize/change direction of the huge Tsunami roaring down on us, taking away not only our Freedom, but our Lives? Regardless if our salaries are dependant on us not knowing the inconvenient truths of reality (global warming, corporate rule, stagnant energy science) portrayed by the rare articles in the news media? I know only one - a free science, our window to Reality - that easily resolves the Foundational Problem of Quantum Physics and takes E=MC2 out of Kindergarten

The Predator and the Terrorist

Freedom Times Projecting Forward on Appleby's "An Impossible World?", Another Submission, Another Rejection Letter From A Publisher:

The Predator and the Terrorist

Appleby: The Predator and the Terrorist
Infinite War against Terrorism: so long as the Predator exists and steals food from the mouths of children, there will be the stamped label, “Terrorists” or “Freedom Fighters”

Publisher: Mr. Appleby, I clearly do not understand your theme: Corporations, the backbone of the economic system providing all the resources required for life – food, shelter, transportation, medical, jobs - from fuel/oil/energy institutions, to huge multinational financial institutions, all acting as predators? In the financial sector, mortgages selling to the highest bidder worthless, unsecured securities creating worldwide financial collapse? With credit card usury rates and fees causing a $4000.00 credit card debt to metamorphosis into a $40,000 pseudo mortgage look alike? Institutions creating these financial wonders while using OPM’s (other people’s money) with a savings return rate almost equivalent to zero. It puts your Al Capone and other historical monster entities to shame and insignificance in comparison. And then the hedge funds, the hyenas’ hysterical joy and laughter over their immense profits, as old people froze in the winter because they could not afford to pay the $6000 to $10000 per month heating costs created by market manipulation. Then, your creative writing adds gas price fluctuation of 60% claiming market demand causation? A 60% decline in demand? But your traffic jams are worse than before the decline? Absurdity upon absurdity. Maybe you should add “honest Al Capone” was permitted to police/regulate himself” in a free market economy. Utterly absurd and impossible.

Publisher: Furthermore, isn’t a predator that financially strangles, chokes, and destroys life, exactly the same a Terrorist? Just because the destruction takes place over longer time spans, making the suffering, anguish and death even greater in intensity, does not nullify, absolve, and excuse the predator. The billions of deaths just to women and children alone over the last 60 years from poverty, starvation, thirst, malnutrition, disease is enough to make one puke in disgust if such a world as you describe were even possible. And topping it off with your SOP “need to know” secrecy, from corporate boardrooms to government and military installations, is not representative of freedom, specifically if such denial of scientific data threatens the sustainability and evolution of living systems, as in energy stagnation. And then madness upon madness, you say the population is being dumbed down and made hostile to science? Science, the understanding tool which expands a population’s window to Reality necessary to sustain evolution and survival, suppressed? Common sense dictates advanced energy systems required for evolving complex civilizations to survive, also mandates a civilization possess and embrace the critical wisdom tools that are natural to universal life, evolution and survival; wisdom tools that foster profound comprehension and actually become a self deterrent against misuse. Nature itself possesses inherent self preservation tendencies, built in Fail-safes. The understanding required for the development and application of evolutionary advanced energy stages are not possible without integration of the four sciences, Physical, Mental, Social, Spiritual, making advanced energy systems beyond nuclear impossible to misuse with even the barest glimpse of wisdom sciences integrated with the extended principles of E=MC2. Such is the profound effect comprehension brings, as it totally and scientifically, connects all the sciences: Physical, Mental, Social, Spiritual. (http://fadingillusionviarealitycurve.blogspot.com Sunday, December 12, 2004 Blog, "and yet, by secrecy and silence, the death sentence was also sealed")

Publisher: Furthermore, and more precisely, who could be so blind as not to perceive the darkness cloaked behind your flag of freedom? Who could be so blind, in a world of six billion rapidly increasing population, to believe countless numbers of these people no longer need the necessities of food, shelter, transportation, medical, or the extra luxuries that make life more pleasant. How in God’s name could any population with intelligence anywhere in the universe, permit an economic downturn, almost to the edge of collapse, even with such a sick and rotten to the core system as you describe? The survival needs of six billion people would not allow that intense and obscene kind of greed. Who could fail to see the deadly Emperor syndrome of unregulated corporate mergers, one king, the rest serfs, one kingly mistake, all die? Who could believe in your fabled Chinese quote, “the dragon eating its own tail until it was dead” would be acted out? I am sorry; we cannot publish such idiocy for our readers.

Appleby's world, "a world where he never had to pay a power bill, where heating and cooling were free of energy costs, where his water was pure and veggies local and fresh, and where a four hour work day allowed him ample spare time to indulge in his writing fantasies. Outside, the air was fresh and the streets clean. Everyone had a job, and in this world-the real world-there were no clandestine powers holding back progress. All received a fair share for their efforts"
An Impossible World? Excerpt from The Energy Solution Revolution by Brian O'Leary http://freedomtimes.blogspot.com/2009/04/impossible-world.html

Credibility for Appleby's world provided by Freedom Times & StarSteps:The Radius of Curvature of all Natural Law principle buried within the equation E=MC2 unified Physics and Metaphysics. In short, the quantity C was the measure of the radius of curvature of natural law. It was the factor enabling us to determine precisely the degree of change in the curvature of one law which is brought about by a specified change in the application of the others (i.e., using the common denominator equivalents of space, time, mass, matter, energy, gravity). Stating that the quantity C is the radius of the curvature of natural law, simply means that if a differential of energy equal to this quantity exists between the observer and the point which he is observing, the natural laws will be suspended. If the energy differential is in excess of the quantity C, the laws will appear to operate in reverse at that point. In effect, an unlimited, multidimensional universe opened, dissolving the light barrier and single pole gravitational limitation, merging science and spiritual dimensions to a unified, as above so below, foundation of previously unimaginable prosperity, abundance, health and well being, opening the gateway, the steps to the stars.

"Poverty in all its forms is the greatest single threat to peace, democracy, human rights, and the environment. It is a time bomb against the heart of liberty" World Trade Organization Director Mike Moore.

"Inadequate comprehension and application of Energy, in all its forms, in an increasingly complex and evolving civilization, is the single greatest causal factor of poverty - and the vehicle to self-destruct." Decatalyst

"As systems increase in complexity, their energy intensity and energy requirements to sustain life rise accordingly." Hydrocarbons ceased fitting the energy bill, became obsolete, years ago. Nobel Prize winner , Ilya Progogine
Revisiting the Nature of Power:

Onward the capitalist machine marches, as it grinds down the vast majority of citizens, plunders our environment, ignores treaty obligations and ignores the problems of the inner cities. Inside the country, economic and social bad news multiply with a joint relentlessness. The public education system is in crisis and health insurance for 50 million Americans simply does not exist. The unemployment rates in the US mount inexorably, as more jobs are lost every day.
Capitalism as an Imperialist 'tool' Neoimperialism: Skimming the Cream Chapter 1 of Against Empire
http://www.michaelparenti.org/AgainstEmpire.html by Michael Parenti. Michael Parenti received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale University in 1962

Mild shock and disbelief barely registered in the nation of the most productive, overworked, underpaid, underinsured, vacation deprived, low paid slave/workers in the world, as they watched their bridges fall down along with their retirement savings in equity & stocks, while their taxes, gas, energy and food costs continued skyrocketing to uncharted realms and many continue to lose their homes and go hungry; as the masses stagnated in unmovable traffic, and government departments threatened to close due to lack of funds - On the bright side, the worldwide corporate 2% greedy guts, individually, had aplenty, more wealth than 30 nations combined, apiece.... irrelevant to who is paying for their errors (as in subprime loans).As common sense in science is lost with the continued stagnation of our energy base and deep troubling theoretical foundational issues in physics, so too, Civilization's Survival Parameters fly out of sight, out of mind, along with the values and morals inherent within new scientific understanding which new energy systems would reveal. Scientific Stagnation bodes an ill wind to evolution, sustainability, and survival as "cycles of humiliation, dumbing us down, violence, and Unrestrained Corporate Greed prompting resource wars with nuclear finality" join hands with global warming and ecological imbalance to precipitate the historical "rise and fall of civilization" - a Tsunami accelerating toward us with a far more spectacular event than the legends and myths of 'Atlantis and Lemuria"........ had more people known that Energy from Corn (or going backwards to a dimwitted concept of radioactive nuclear power application ) sounded a wee bit kindergartenish and senile for the twenty first century......the Future may have had a chance.

"Corporism: The Systemic Disease that Destroys Civilization."
http://www.countercurrents.org/glo-reiner11503.htm Huge corporations now control America's body politic by reason of their bald-faced purchases of the three branches of the American government and America's major media. by Ken Reiner: kreiner@earthlink.net 05/09/03: I view the continuing growth of corporate power and its despotic control of governments throughout the world, including our own, as a socio-economic disease. While Mussolini and others named it "Fascism," I call it "Corporism" because that name better reveals its underlying institutional structure. I would define Corporism as the domination of government and society by the emergence and power of the giant publicly-traded multinational corporations and financial institutions, organized in totalitarian hierarchies, which singly and in combinations buy or destroy their competitors, corrupt the politics of nations, and seize, hoard, and wield for themselves most of the wealth of the human race.
We must recognize that we do have this cancerous disease, what it is doing to us and the world we live in, how it came about historically, and how and why it continues to be generated and sustained now in our society. Just as computer viruses find their ways into the software of our computers and destroy their operation, Corporism, promulgating itself by financial, legal, and technological means, has infected society in ways that lead to the hoarding of human resources, increasing insecurity and misery for the bulk of the world's population, perhaps even to worldwide holocaust. We must conquer this disease if we are to survive.

Abolish Corporate Personhood Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF)http://www.wilpf.org/corp/cintro.htm Concerned about the rapid escalation of corporate power in the US and around the world, three years ago members of the US section of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) began studying and researching how corporations became so powerful. We discovered the hidden history of "corporate personhood" - the legal phenomenon that provides constitutional protections to corporations. Not only is corporate personhood a key component of corporate power, it's one of the greatest threats to democracy that we've ever known. Most people, however, have never even heard of it. In September, 2001 WILPF launched a campaign to abolish corporate personhood that has as its goal to delegitimize the institution of the corporation as a political entity.

Ralph Nader, founder of Public Citzen: I am responsible for my actions, but who is responsible for those of General Motors? An individual's capital is basically his integrity. He can lose only once. A corporation can lose many times, and not be affected. This unequal contest between the individual and any complex organization, whether it is a corporation, a union, government, or other group, is something which bears the closest scrutiny in order to try to protect the individual from such invasions."

Corporate Responsibility "The requirement of a just social order is that the responsibility shall lie where the power of decision rests. But the law has never caught up with the development of the large corporate unit. Deliberate acts emanate from the sprawling and indeterminable shelter of the corporate organization. Too often the responsibility for an act is not imputable to those whose decision enable it to be set in motion. People sitting in executive suites can make remote decisions which will someday result in tremendous carnage, and because they are remote in time and space between their decision and the consequences of that decision, there is no accountability."

On Extraordinary Corporate Power "In our country, the large corporations are the dominant institution. They comprise the strongest, consistent, generic power in the land. They share a high degree of coordinated values. Their power is all the more remarkable in its resiliency and ability to accommodate or absorb other challenging power centers such as big government and organized labor in ways that turn an additional profit, erect an additional privilege, or acquire protective mechanisms to ward off new pressures for change or reform."
Corporate Collectivism Leads Toward Ecological Disaster "The absence of political vigilance by the organs of Government toward the onrush of corporate collectivism, with the exception of a few aborted Senate inquiries, is fraught with danger to a democratic society. This is the case, no matter how affluent that society has become in the aggregate, because of the gaping injustices affecting minority groups and majority public services. Indeed, the very productiveness of our economic system, a chief referent for corporate apologists, has led, through incaution and indifference, to vast new problems, centering, for example, on the pell-mell contamination of soil, air, and water that is taking us toward ecological disaster."

Paul Hawken: Natural Capitalism http://www.natcap.org/defaultHTM.php By almost any measure, multinational corporations have failed spectacularly on their promise of fostering global democracy and prosperity. That’s why people all across the planet—from villagers in India to students in North America—are stepping up to challenge the abuses of big business. While corporate power is deeply entrenched, this new economic democracy movement is fueled by a fresh set of strategies about how people can regain power. —The Editors

"All Publicly held corporations live a lie. They believe that we reside in a world where capital has the right to grow and that that right is a higher right than the rights of people to their culture and what we hold in common. There is something incalculably wrong with this view. You can't get to sustainability from an economic model that strives first and foremost to increase the amount of money large corporations have. You can't get there if you're destroying the world's local economies. You can't get there if you are MacDonald's and spend $2 billion a year to get children to eat your junk food. We cannot correct environmental problems if we don't correct the assumptions that cause them. Most of the world's economy and the behavior of the world's government are under the control of corporations. Corporations are striving to increase their control; at the same time, the world is increasingly out of control. There is a direct connection."

Selected from a third-grade geography curriculum, the $25,000 question asked: “Budapest is the capital of what European country?” Ms. Pickler threw up both hands and looked at the large blackboard perplexed. “I thought Europe was a country,” she said. Playing it safe, she chose to copy the answer offered by one of the genuine fifth graders: Hungary. “Hungry?” she said, eyes widening in disbelief. “That’s a country? I’ve heard of Turkey. But Hungry? I’ve never heard of it.”

NYT April 23, 2008 Imposing grip on American news media (squashes freedom of speech and public awareness of reality) Murdoch Moving to Buy Newsday for $580 Million By RICHARD PÉREZ-PEÑA and TIM ARANGO Rupert Murdoch is moving to tighten his already-imposing grip on American news media, striking a tentative deal to buy his third New York-based paper, Newsday, and getting his first chance to appoint the top editor of The Wall Street Journal, after the resignation of the editor on Tuesday. His $580 million bid for Newsday and his urgency in remaking The Journal worry his competitors and cause angst in many newsrooms, including his own. And both moves are vintage Rupert Murdoch, a man who operates his sprawling News Corporation like an old-style media mogul, making big bets on old and new media — bankrolling the new Fox Business Network, aggressively pursuing a deal for Yahoo, and buying Dow Jones & Company, publisher of The Journal, for far more than analysts thought it was worth. And that was just in the last year.
