Intervening on the Build-up of War: 2nd part of talk with a fascist (?) cousin (tags)
My cousin could be equated with a mid-level military officer in his local influence (of young men) and his technique of speaking with me, whom he shares some basic prohibited enjoyments (i.e. smoking pot). He may be involved in the fascist underground and that would seem likely given his penchance for this topic and his connections (i.e. with his brother who is a well-known east coast agitator against jews). Whatever he is doing, I saw a chance to not only possibly intervene directly into someone who is attempting to justify and rationalize his beliefs, but also share (and seek input) this with people like yourself whom may be inspired in your own activity.
Banking on Our Ignorance: A holocaust denier is taken on by his cousin (tags)
The more ignorant or unfamiliar you are with and about statecraft, the easier people who want to perpetuate war can manipulate you. So committments to war or peace or radical sanity take form, and an intensifying radical's radical dialogue "becomes" between two persons who like each other at face value (and some years of background history). This communication may be instructive for those who want to better understand aggression and its rationalizations in order to ju-jitsu the worst of what happens when beliefs are allowed to bear the ugly fruits of perpetual war.

“Agir local, pensar global”, Jacques Ellul
Religiously Organized Tooled for Brave New World Order (tags)
Was reading Bill Moyers' article (http://www.omniparticle.com/burning_ice2.html) about this stuff that Bush II has been supporting, and as I read, knowing what I know about statecraft, I couldn't help but to see how, as usual, people are being hyped-up and divided for interests that they're not aware of.

From passivity to proaction! (flyer and art) (tags)
Your alleged "leaders" often believe you are "incapable" and feeling too powerless to be more proactive than simply attending rallies and marches in a passive way. The flyer text here is meant to do two things: inspire you, and many others, to become more proactive--in a basic resistance of consciousness! Here is a giant pile of deep info that should inspire!
Decisive weakness of Right-wing: Lack of public, open forums for dialogue (tags)
The hype and manipulation of emotionally-potent over-simplifications by reformers on each wing is quite similar, except for one thing: The Right-wing persists in categorically not allowing forums for open-ended dialogue.

QUICK! Go outside (or imagine yourself outside) Then look up into the sky. Then imagine yourself jumping straight up faster than the speed of light, faster than anything, for the rest of your life!
Resistance of Consciousness--an Alternative to Increasing Police State (with flyer) (tags)
An alternative still open as the police/war state moves into predictable gear is that we can still use this (the Net) and other tools to get out the word of Resistance Consciousness.
Possible solutions for Ju-jitsuing War and Alienation (tags)
intellectual self-defense; informal resistance consciousness and pros/cons of formal organization; the meta game; wizards of Is; An explanation for Perpetual War; a new imagination; liberation of our desire and an obstacle; Continue war, or understand and implement liberatory desires? spirit liberation and psychological ju-jitsu; 'crazy' people; a personal example: jumping into my fear; another example: 'Good Peasant, Bad Peasant'; the problem of institutionalized fear.
Now They Tell Us. (tags)
How much of what the Bush Junta said was there justification for war was true. Paul Wolfowitless has said it was a consensus reason. How nice. What this means is that it is not the real reason.
John Trudell and an artist discuss the perpetual war mentality (tags)
Everybody is trying to find a way out from the mess they're in and they're using dark age intellectualizations and remaining confined in these concepts that have been imposed upon us from day one. Our spirits, the part of us that gifted us excellent medicine to deal with our lives here, has been systematically mined by a severely alienated perpetual war mentality. Join Trudell and i in a kind of conversation that you are invited to participate in.

"I insist that to give such warning [ against propaganda ] is an act in the defense of man…I want to speak of it as a menace..."—Jacques Ellul in Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes*
