Terrorist Power Always Ignores Its People, Yet... --with art!

According to Noam Chomsky and others, the USA is the leading terrorist state in the world. Since *Newspeak* is the Name of the Game, "our" government will always try to fool us with hype, and failing that, will *ram through* its policies anyway. One way we can remain vigilant is through a *resistance of consciousness*.

A resistance of consciousness is about 1) becoming aware of the way the Meta Game** is played by obedient social and cultural managers implementing the severely alienated policies of their bosses; 2) learning to avoid when, how, and where the attacks come from; 3) appearing to go along with force when we have no other choice.

This type of resistance does not have to be passive either. You can get involved in spreading resistance consciousness on *every topic* you can probably come up with.

If it's true what Chomsky says: "Thought Control is to Western Democracy what the Big Stick is to Tyranny" then it's quite probable that the pattern runs throughout all institutions which play leading roles in serving the needs and desires of "our" government.

That means that you can choose to promote critical thought and awareness on topics across the board. "Connect the dots". From GMO food issues to compulsory schooling; from anti-psychiatry to "normal" work; from demystification of presidential administrations to ADHD fraud; from investigation of Kissinger to the methods of propaganda (re: via J. Ellul), and so on and so forth.

You can dig up alternatives to every topic under the sun, probably! The prevailing imagination says that you CAN'T and that 'you're just going to have to get USED TO the way things IS. You find that kind of lost cynicism, and you have to wonder if there isn't more to the actual truth.

So, get invovled. Do something you feel like doing. Utilize the vast internet resources of dissent. Read between the lines. You'll feel better. You'll be adding to a very important movement towards human excellence! And even if we cannot make a difference in this lifetime, we can at least go onto the next life with the satisfaction of having tried our best!

**Meta Game: the game played in a systematic pattern by all elites. We see it more clearly when we look at parenting; but kids don't see it. We can also see it on the topic of Santa Claus, if that makes things clearer. It's important to understand that this type of interaction is routine by influence and public management professionals upon everyone, also.

See www.intheheart.net for examples of where you may want to begin your own brand of *resistance consciousness*.

unbridled artists syndicate is always looking for other doers of art which flies beyond the confines of ideology and rigid dichotomy (whether on the Left, Right, and etc.). If you have art, or know of an art-doer whose art may be of interest to us, please email us. Notably, in the week or so immediately after we post articles here, our email may be attacked; please keep trying to send mail even if it is returned. Our website: ice.prohosting.com/~unmediat

you can always spot the severely alienated--but don't hate 'em!

To escape the seemingly perpetual "Us vs. Them" dichotomy, and as well, bring more John Stockwells to the movement, we would do our work well to promote open, articulated *empathy* for individuals trapped within severely confining mindsets. (this doesn't mean capitulating or watering down our challenge, however!)
