"What's Next?" Ask "What's Here?"

“What’s Next?” Ask “What’s Here?”


This is a death we are living through, the slow unfolding of multiple interlocking catastrophes, the deconstruction and reformation of every social and natural system you can name: politics, economics, social relations, culture, the eco-system, the human spirit. It is also a birth of something new. In fact, what is being birthed is a mass realization that there is no way to separate any of these realms from one another. At the deepest…

“The Degree To Which You Resist Is The Degree To Which You Are Free.”

“The Degree To Which You Resist Is The Degree To Which You Are Free.”

I've noticed a meme beginning to fester among liberal insiders who are positing that the Occupy Wall Street movement is starting to "distract" the citizenry from the wicked…

Algorithms and Red Wine: Is the 'digital hive' a soft totalitarian state?

As an authentic anarchist, I don't even follow my on rules. One more for the old fart: Joe Bageant (may he rest in peace), America's Redneck Prophet, author of Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War, Rainbow Pie: A Redneck Memoir, and the posthumous Waltzing at the Doomsday Ball, addresses in this essay (one of his last) a number of issues that, I believe, are insufficiently acknowledged in today's "progressive" culture -…

Occupy That!

Occupy squares, parks, streets, neighborhoods, cities;

Occupy churches, mosques, synagogues, temples;

Occupy driving rain, wind, snow, biting cold;

Occupy exhaustion, aggravation, stress;

Occupy frustrations, doubts, fears, jeers, tears, cheers;

Occupy lamestream, sold-out-media lies;

Occupy water cannons, flashbangs, tear gas;

Occupy batons, beatings, bullets, bloodshed;

Occupy the kleptonomy's police-state;

Occupy lying, venal…

Moral Imperative

This was posted on Occupy Portland's Facebook page earlier today.  Marianne Williamson does an unbelievable job of laying out what I feel is the moral imperative behind Occupy, what's at stake, and what it means to truly follow the principles of nonviolent resistance...and so much more.  Well worth the lengthy listen.

Criteria for evaluating corporations and our government


This Economic System is the inhumane Corporate BEAST that actually provokes the making of WAR, and military domination, for the making of PROFIT!

This is the same Corporate BEAST that vandalizes our Planet Earth and is indifferent to the anguished cries of its inhabitants!

Listen Up Corporations! The Ethical People of Earth will begin now to teach YOU how to behave ethically; your shameful…

"Occupy Congress And Change The World!"

Put together a slate of candidates that are honest people drawn from the occupy movement's ranks and elect them to Congress. The first order of business is to take big money out of federal politics. Pass the Fair Elections Now Act (S. 750 and H.R. 1404). A law where political candidates for federal office would raise a large number of small contributions from their communities in order to qualify for Fair Elections funding. Contributions are limited to $100.00. Strictly voluntary by the…

It's Time for the 99% To Occupy the Occupy Movement

Many of us Northern Californians are familiar with the wise-cracking, wise-guy affectionately know as Swami Beyondananda, aka Steve Bhaerman, and his lovely consort Trudy Trueheart.  Steve's ability to lighten up weighty subjects has brought relief to many a soul.  Thanks for keeping the light lit,…
