Part I, "In Tribute to Fidel Castro", lists some of his extraordinary, truly astonishing achievements. Part II asks, "How Can We Best Honor Him?", and answers with an Action Plan designed to defeat the Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis that threatens Cuba and all of us with an international Fascist strait-jacket.
(and Best Wishes) to Fidel Castro:
best can We Honor Him?
[By doing our part to
defeat the Giant Corporation-Government- corporate Mass Media Axis]
I read (or misread) a false (Thank Goodness) report of
death. (Mark Twain would have said it was exaggerated.) What
below was originally written as a Eulogy. Happily, a few
words can be
changed and the article offered as a Tribute
to this truly astonishing hero.
After the Tribute, we put forward an Action
Plan intended to rescue Cuba and the rest of us from "the New World Order".
A GIANT has nearly passed from this little planet earth.
measure of Fidel Castro's greatness is the depth of reverence and love
the People of Cuba have felt for this man, which helped immensely to
keep him safe from a series of American secret police assassins.
measure of Fidel Castro's greatness is witnessed by the virtual
unanimity of support given him by the Cuban people, presenting a
virtually unified front against subversion and constant financial
political pressure from the overwhelmingly powerful United States.
measure of Fidel Castro's greatness can be glimpsed on any map
displaying the United States and Cuba. Just look at the
physical size ! Go ahead and look at a map. Fidel Castro kept
island safe from this enormous, warmongering and close-lying Enemy for
half a century !! Unimaginable,
but he DID it.
measure of Fidel Castro's greatness may be viewed in his original
Revolution -- managed in a U.S. Corporation-Mafia playground bolted and
guarded by a U.S. Government-coddled Batista dictatorship.
measure of Fidel Castro's greatness can be seen in the quick,
revolutionary transformations in Cuba from downtrodden
poverty and exploitation to social security, education, and
one of the
best medical systems in the world (substantially better for people's
health than that found in the United States).
A measure of Fidel
Castro's greatness is to take a downtrodden people and to instill in
them a quiet, indelible, soul-nourishing PRIDE.
A measure of Fidel Castro's greatness was obvious in his personal bravery and

things that motivate the heavy majority of middle-class

haunt even the Rich, urging them to lead unethical, petty materialistic
lives -- and only in this are they uncompromising.]

Purpose lends courage. Fidel Castro has exemplified this
A measure of Fidel Castro's greatness lies in the inspiration he
bestowed upon so many of us --- and not to forget that Che
Guevara did the same. Oh, Cuba ! Thank
the unsung hero Raul Castro !!]
A measure of Fidel Castro's greatness, and the hatred he awakened in
ugly financial and political Powers, may be seen in his INDEPENDENCE and
As a symbol of these unusual human virtues did the alien Powers not
only hate but FEAR him. They are, after all, despite their
Power, a tiny, tiny, tiny, miniscule minority. "What if", they ask each
other, "The Many become fearless, independent and morally determined
like this Castro?"
How Best Can We Honor Fidel Castro?
to overcome the Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis that
is creating a New World Order of international Fascism which gravely
endangers all of us.
First to quickly explain The
System we are yoked into. Once distinguishing the trees
from the forest, It is really quite simple:
have the money (for the most part begotten criminally). They
into politicians and the entire political system, thereby purchasing
the most coveted of prizes -- domination
of Government with
all of Its tremendous powers (e.g. to devise
giant-corporation-benefiting policies such as War, fascistic
destruction of democratic processes and civil liberties, secret-police
Scaremongering contrivances such as America's 9/11 and Britain's
Genetic Engineering, Patents on Life-Forms and the entire abusive
system of patent law, the marketing of dangerous drugs,
from taxation, protection from an exploited and
and, generally, protection from Justice.)
Domination of Government facilitates the other fabulous weapon in the
Corporate arsenal -- a
corporate Mass Media which propagandizes, suppresses
information, and distorts facts. In other words, operates a
system of Thought
The chief dispenser of Thought Control is the genuinely vile, Orwellian
machine called TELEVISION.
It is an addiction far worse than heroin, and the ignorant, ethically
passive Silent Majority

largely ignorant, easily manipulated, and politically passive Majority
is the true basis of Corporate Power.
The ignorance and warped thinking of the Vast Majority are utterly
vital to the Few

control, as in Classical Athens, the political system is called
informed, politically active Majority would spell the end of Giant
Corporation domination of Government and the Media.

Rockefeller and DuPont in the USA) who control these Giant Corporations
are forever bent on keeping the Citizenry ignorant, misinformed, and
politically passive (except, now-and-then, to be aroused for evil
Miscellaneous, Extremely Important Facts:
1. Giant Corporations form themselves into syndicates
(cartels). The 3 most wealthy and powerful cartels are
the U.S.-UK Oil Cartel (essentially, Rockefeller-held
Exxon-Mobil-Chevron and British BP & Shell Oil. The
family has dominated this cartel for 100 years. Wars in
Iraq, Lebanon, the intended invasion of Iran, etc., are this Cartel's
(2) The Chemical-Drug-Biotechnology syndicate [principal
corporations include Monsanto, DuPont, Dow (USA)-- not quite certain
but Monsanto & Dow are very likely
AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline (UK), and Bayer, Aventis (the dominant,
German partner being the former Hoechst), BASF (Germany --- these three
used to be called "I.G. Farben", which built and operated the slave
labour-extermination camp at Auschwitz). The poisoning of the
international food supply via genetic engineering, pesticides
irradiation are this Cartel's doing.
(3) Banking cartel (including prominently CityBank and Chase Manhattan
(Rockefeller), Barclays (UK), and Deutschebank (Germany).
the policies of the other, closely integrated corporate syndicates is
this Cartel's doing (especially through its domination of the IMF,
World Bank, WTO organisations).
Politicians -- People like
George Bush and Tony Blair, Chirac of France, and whoever heads the
government in Germany at the moment, are political henchmen
real bosses, promoted &paid to execute corporate policy and
with the natives if they get restless. If these Politicos
were to go
against crucial Corporate policies, they would be harried, stymied, and
replaced. (The aforementioned, however, are very willing political
The Basic Question again: How do
we overcome the Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis?
General Answer: by devising our own
Alternative Information &
Specific Answer: by conducting Grassroots
Public Information Campaigns on major issues to
educate and politically activate the General Public, university/college
students in particular.

major issues). Without them, we are lost. With them, the
Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media is lost.
Which do you prefer?
Note: This is essentially educational
work (on important issues of your choice), to be done by
all of us, in SPARETIME ( perhaps 3 or 4 hours
a week), but regularly, as part of an ethical life-style.
Note: Avoid like the
plague established organisations, especially NGOs.
They are not what they seem, and are generally corporate
allies who pretend to be the opposite. Never ever join or give them
your educational work alone, or in small groups of people you know.
[Just pass on essential
information on a major issue that interests you
some other people; do it regularly as part of an ethical life-style --
and request they do the same. That's all. Yet note
few people are capable of informing an entire university or community
if they try.]

Order, an international Fascist order.

20th century's leading political member of by far the most powerful
group of interests in this world. Also appropriately, the

underway, and only one side clearly knows it. The War pits Giant
Corporations Against People and Morality,

uprisings, and Freedom and Nature on planet earth to boot.

We can still win this
