Warmest spiritual greetings, The next time that you are heading up the west coast, please make a stop in Oakland and participate with Oakland Occupy Patriarchy! We are focused on the removal of the psychotic patriarchal plutocracy, and the furtherance of a brand new civilization based on spiritual (not materialistic) reality. Weekly meetings are on Thursdays at the new east bay infoshop, The Holdout on 18th Street in downtown Oakland. Check out the website.
I hereby thank L.A.'s Razorcake group for continuing to send me timely updates...which I share worldwide...enjoyed the 7" Blood Buddies today.
I have to share that there is an individual whom we don't know the identity of at SF's Indybay IMC, who apparently hates me, because all of my news postings and all of my comments are being removed. The SF IMC tech staff has no explanation.
Therefore, I post here first so that the Socal frontliners receive whatever I wish to communicate, and then I send out the link via my hushmail account, so that SF bay area frontliners receive the information as well. It's all a bit idiocrazy, but that's postmodernism in America.
Please please please read my "Dear Disinterested Postmodern America" on a blog which an Earth First!er in Maine created for me when I was still at the Occupy encampments in NYC and Washington D.C. It's on blog page one at http://craiglstehr.blogspot.com
Otherwise, recent email messages from the D.C. Anarchist Alliance (email@example.com
) tell me that Occupy is alive and kickin' in the district, and that mainstream media is lying in suggesting that direct action has slowed down since Occupy phase one ended in March.
Okay. let's get personal: I am willing to relocate, if for no other reason, than to reclaim my lost "straight but not narrow" social life which has disappeared in the midst of decades of cultivating a spiritual life, writing down the bones and getting it out all around the world, Earth First! direct action and attenuating selfless service with peace and justice groups, and did I say "cultivating a spiritual life" amidst the quagmire of samsara? I cannot afford Cali New Age lifestyle enhancements, such as $225 hr. bliss massage...heck, if I'm going to spend that, I could go back to India and get stroked in the tantra communities for next to nothing! I won't even mention receiving expensive personal therapist services of any kind...if I win LOTTO, I'll have my Japanese spa friends bind me with ropes, gently flog me, and then toss me off the Golden Gate Bridge wearing only a life vest, as punishment for being so lame as to end up in this stupid social situation in postmodern northern California in the first place. Hopefully, you're all doing better in LA in terms of giving and receiving more love.
Talk to me, Craig Louis Stehr
