  • Re: To change the world

    Government is the bastardization of many individual's good ideas on how to cahnge the world for the better. Anything other than a small group will lead down the same path. No matter how good your intentions to perpetuate positive change, the more people that get involved, the greater the risk of exchanging one evil for another. Changing the world comes when you change YOUR OWN perception of the world. Not by forcing your will, beliefs, or value systems on someone else. Government intervention, religious zealotry, joining any organization, opening a fast food franchise, or any other type of cultural imperialism is just another way of saying, "Our way is better than yours". The world is not one big happy family, not a collective group of souls with a common purpose or pursuit, not of one mind or spirit. It is only a group of individuals who all have a right to thier own thought and dreams. Any attempt to homogonize the individual human spirit is an attack on free will and personal expression. So, yes, "Never doubt a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world." But only if they keep to themselves and don't try to change everyone else world.



  • Assimilation

    I am trying to initiate a world campaign to urge people to make a better world. But sometimes I think to myself: How can mankind build a fair society if man, in essence, is evil? The world is what it is today because we humans MADE IT this way. And all the violence, unfairness, wars, famine, etc. exists because they are reflections of the nature of humans. To change that, we would have to change our very nature. Is that possible? Is that needed? Am I just being pessimist?
    We all are evil in essence, because we are humans. But there are some who are capable of hold this evilness deep within. However, many of these people are being "assimilated" by the society. I know many people that could have been good persons, but are not because they let the society change them into mere ponds. They donŽt want to change because they donŽt think this would make a difference. They are assimilated, like the victims of The Borg from Star Trek.
    I would like to hear opinions on HOW can we REALLY convince someone evil or someone "assimilated" to make something good, to buid a fair world.
    Thanks for reading my crazyness ...

  • Amazing ... and VERY SAD

    It is regretable, but unfortunately, not unexpected.
    I just post a message about trying to make a better world, and the messages after that are only confirming the evil nature of mankind. People are using this message bord to make money or other pesonal gains, NOT to do something really useful for all.
    Really regretable ...

  • Todays society there is a great many horrors that people are blind to. As a youth today in America, T.V. and radio show depictions of matarilism and importans on physically beauty and money and sex. They show no importance to character, culture, self-esteem. I feel that military studies show how to subdue and overtake a people's mind and ideas which in todays market is implemented by the government and big corporations. If you see what they sell, they sell clothing, (medical)Drugs, beer, porn, sexism. It's all for capital that exploits the people's weakness. The weaker the person, the lower the self-esteem, the less beauty someone sees within and the less they resist. You want the latest fashion so you can cover yourself up to feel more beautiful and fit in. The news & media are all owned by big corperations, and one sided ideas are given and sold to the masses. And they sell their ideas so great. Any government official who is elected must have a big corporate sponser, or they have to be rich to be elected, which means the (consumer)voter has no real choice in who they elect. There is no real freedom of speech, no real power to the people as the founding fathers intended of this country. And worst of all, the elites ideas get spread through the earth with satilelites and radio waves and now the internet. Also we go to other countries and take over foreign oils, metals and agraculture. Now, we have made a world that hates us, and wants their freedom from our imperilism. Most foreigners just want us off their lands, but Big Corporate America will not let go of the capital. And in my country we are so busy speaking of war and money and the latest movie or sport issue that we miss what is important. We place money and earning over people and the environment. My country has the highest rape statistics out of all the industrialized countries, but woman are not considered important. Worst of all, studies show that about 25% rape cases are not reported, and in some rare cases some communties show a 95% unreported rape rate. Woman are shown as a lesser lower human in are movies and ads. Porn sells, and people are weak and complacent and they will buy it all up. Studies show that a woman could not be president in this country because people would not elect a woman at such a high office. Some complacent people say that, that is not so bad because woman can hold a high important job or place in society. Which is true but, equality is equality and the truth is the truth. And many woman are beaten by their boyfriends, lovers, husbands. Also sex and male promiscuouty is sold with mania. In the black community this especially sold, everyone wants to be a 'player'. But the sad thing is, today the leading cause of death for African-american males is AIDS, not cancer, not violence, not drug use but AIDS. Remember the weaker the person is, the easier it is to sell ideas or products to. Yet, the mainstream news rarley reports or does such reports at all on these issues. Woman should realize that they are powerful and beautiful and should grow up to be physically and mentally strong. Blacks have been inslaved and continue to be to this day with crack, poverty, bad images. Latin or native americans have had everything taken from them, land, gold, culture, language. The mexican government and many Latin American governments are puppets to the U.S. The environment is placed on lower priority than money. California has paid dearly for with higher gas and water prices for their highly-regulated environmental laws. We slaughter trees and woods and beaches. As long as we don't live next to those dumps we are okay, but it still effects us in other ways. Plants and animals die off and effect our ecosystem. But as an American youth I am told that the government is for me, because I get paid a decent wage and live a pretty good life, hell I am the top of the food chain, but the reality is I am not. And now the FCC and the BUSHwacked senate is getting more restricted with our rights. Fighting wars in my name, and lying to me about weapons of mass destruction, but the reality it is for the oil. Did you know the U.S. did not have problems with current Cuban government until they nationalized all the oils and took what belonged to them back from the U.S. Now they are seen as an enemy. I don't want to live in a military government, I love most of my freedoms, but we are being highjacked and we need to stop it! Free your mind. Know you are strong and beautiful. We all tend to lie to ourselves so the world fits are own created views. But corporations control those views now. Stop lying to yourself and don't believe anyone elses lies. Free your mind, and fly. Power to the people. May god be with us all, and lets hope to make a peaceful world.



  • Hello everyone,

    To achieve social change we need tools to represent, present and disseminate the global view. Ways to conjoin and balance individual-group; mechanistic-humanistic.

    We need an agreed conceptual currency, a social place, a shared framework upon which to argue, agree to differ and solve problems. A tool taught universally to ALL children, complementing the 3Rs: a tool that supports 21st century methods of reasoning and information literacy.

    I wondered if the site below may prove a unique solidarity place?

    'h2cm' publicises a health and social care model -

    ** with much wider and universal applications **

    • originally created in the UK by Brian E Hodges:

    Hodges' Health Career - Care Domains - Model [h2cm]

    http://www.p-jones.demon.co.uk/

    h2cm can help map health, social care and other issues, problems AND solutions, taking a situated
    and multi-contextual view across four knowledge domains:

    • Interpersonal;
    • Sociological;
    • Empirical;
    • Political (Autonomy).

    Our links pages cover each care domain with content of interest to all 'greens'.

  • I'm a social activist from Vancouver, Canada, doing graduate studies in interactive arts and technology at Simon Fraser University. My area of research is the use of mobile phones by activists at large-scale social actions - how and why mobile phones are used, what features are used, what problems are encountered, etc.

    I hope to use my research not just for academic reasons but also to help make communications at social actions more effective.

    I've developed a short (5-10 minutes) web-based questionnaire about this issue. The questionnaire is complete anonymous - I don't keep track of ip addresses, ask for email addresses or names, and all raw data will be destroyed in 12 months time.

    If you'd like to participate, you'll find the questionnaire at http://www.sfu.ca/~tlavende/survey/mobile.html. The first page is a standard university form explaining the purpose of the survey and your rights as a participant. Clicking the button at the bottom of the screen takes you to the actual questionnaire. The questionnaire will be available until the end of May.

    Again, it's anonymous and your participation would be greatly appreciated. When I've analyzed the results in early summer, I'd be happy to share them with anyone interested.

    I welcome suggestions as to how to get the word out about this survey or where I could go for more information and/or anecdotes about peoples' experiences with using mobile phones in social actions.

    Again, you'll find the questionnaire at http://www.sfu.ca/~tlavende/survey/mobile.html

    thanks for your time.

  • Hi,
    I'm the head of a social service transpersonal organization - we are looking for enthusastic consultants that have some innovative ideas about social programs we could implement based on humanist/existential/transpersonal philosophies. Please email daseinpbc@yahoo.com if you think you could help out. Even at a distance you can make a difference with us. Dasein, Inc. is a not-for-profit humanitarian organization governed by a Board of Directors thinking globally but acting locally. It is our goal to make persons more productive members of society. We believe the best way to make persons more productive members of society is to give them purpose, a wider sense of who they are, and a better understanding of their connectedness to others. For these purposes, transpersonal and humanist informed programs seem best that emphasize self-actualization, self-fufillment, and self-realization. Specifically, we wish to serve the citizens of Palm Beach County by implementing innovative programs centered around transpersonal and humanist philosophies that emphasize the health of all the different parts of our being. Our transpersonal programs will have many dimensions including artistic, spiritual, educational, and cultural programs. This integrated approach fosters community and connectedness because it focuses on shared commonalities along with our wonderful differences. This is the backbone of our program because it enables a more caring, socially responsible individual thus one that is more productive. We understand this approach is a big undertaking. However, we wish to open up a dialog among community groups and resources that we believe will support us in our efforts.

  • Have You Been Changed by Travel?

    My name is Garth Lean and I am a PhD student with the University of Western Sydney, Australia. I am currently investigating a phenomenon called ‘transformative travel’ with the hope of gathering information that can develop forms of tourism that bring about enduring social changes in the interests of sustainable development.

    I have just launched a global online study and I'm currently seeking participants who feel they have been 'transformed by travel' to share their accounts on a simple and confidential form at my website www.transformativetravel.com. Two types of participants are being sought:

    1. The main focus of the research is on travellers who have been influenced by a travel experience to such an extent that they were inspired to change their values, attitudes and/or behaviours toward our natural and social environments upon their return home. This also includes individuals who already held strong views on these issues, but were motivated by travel to become more involved in addressing them, and/or the education and encouragement of others to get involved.

    2. As a traveller’s life can be impacted in many other ways by their travel experiences, the study is also looking for participants who represent the diversity of all changes that can occur through travel. In other words, if somebody has been dramatically changed by travel in anyway, I want to hear from them!

    How You Can Help
    If you fit the descriptions above, it would be great if you could share your experiences by completing the simple form at www.transformativetravel.com. Alternately, if you know somebody whose life has been dramatically altered by travel, please tell them about the study and invite them to visit the website.

    If you are just interested in following the project, I have an update newsletter which you can sign up for on the website.

    Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing your experiences.

    Warm Regards,

    Garth

  • Does Anyone Doubt There's a New World Order / Illuminati Conspiracy?

    George W. Bush told us after September 11th that we “mustn’t tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories.” Anxious to be intolerant of something new, I thought I’d look into these outrageous claims. FOX News even suggested taking some time to peruse the internet’s fine “cess-pool of conspiracy theories,” so that’s what I did. However, what I found was a vast library of factual information following the movements of a very real conspiracy. The conspiracy is for world governance under the United Nations. The conspirators are a cabal of international bankers, businessmen, politicians, media personalities, Illuminati families, and secret society elites.

    While this may surprise many and be simply unbelievable to others, that is because there has been a concerted effort, an info-war if you will, to keep the general population in willful ignorance regarding “outrageous conspiracy theories.” Branding this area of research as “theory” propagates it to the masses as unreliable and unimportant. However, just a tiny amount of investigation into subjects such as the JFK assassination, the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11 or 7/7 show a massive amount of evidence against the “official” stories. I urge every one of you to perform your own research into the Illuminati and New World Order. Read the decades of thorough investigation into these subjects and learn why these “conspiracy nuts” are so adamant about their “outrageous theories.” You might just find out what all the buzz is about.

    "It was not my intention to doubt that the doctrines of the Illuminati had
    not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more fully
    satisfied of this fact than I am."
    -George Washington, 1782

    "The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by
    those who are not behind the scenes."
    -Benjamin Disraeli, 1844

    "Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me
    privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of
    commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a
    power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so
    complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when
    they speak in condemnation of it."
    -Woodrow Wilson, 1913

    "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great
    industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of
    credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our
    activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the
    worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments
    in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a
    government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by
    the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."
    -Woodrow Wilson, 1916

    "From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, to those of
    Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman, this world wide
    conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of
    society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and
    impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played a definitely
    recognizable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the
    mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century, and
    now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of
    the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by
    the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters
    of that enormous empire."
    -Winston Churchill, 1920

    "The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a
    giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. At
    the head is a small group of banking houses. This little coterie run our
    government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a
    self-created screen, seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies,
    schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public
    protection.”
    -N.Y. Mayor, John Hylan, 1922

    "The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson"
    -Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933



  • "Today the path to total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by
    strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or
    the people
    outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating
    within our government and political system, another body representing
    another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our
    Constitution is outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side. All the
    strange developments in the foreign policy agreements may be traced to this
    group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure. This political
    action group has its own local political support organizations, its own
    pressure groups, its own vested interests, its foothold within our
    government, and its own propaganda apparatus."
    -Senator William Jenner, 1954

    "The invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It
    financed Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Zionism, Socialism. All of these are
    directed to making the United States a member of a World Government."
    -American Mercury Magazine, 1957

    "The most powerful clique in these (CFR) groups have one objective in
    common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the
    national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and
    racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world
    peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss
    of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for "the purpose of promoting
    disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence
    into an all-powerful one-world government."
    -Harpers, July l958

    "The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically, oppossed to secret societies, secret oaths, and secret proceedings. For we are oppossed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence. It depends on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly effecient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published, its mistakes are buried, not headlined, its dissenters are silenced, not praised, no expendature is questioned, no secret is revealed... I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.
    -JFK, 1961

    "The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational
    consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of
    the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission
    represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate
    the four centers of power political, monetary, intellectual and
    ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a
    worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the
    nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system ,they will
    rule the future."
    -U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, l964

    "The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing
    less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands
    able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the
    world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by
    the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements,
    arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the
    system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a
    private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were
    themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made
    possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power
    for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other
    economic groups."
    -Professor Carroll Quigley, 1966

    "The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world
    government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all
    under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there
    is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and
    incredibly evil in intent."
    -Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that
    was shot down by the Soviets



  • "We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine
    and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and
    respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have
    been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been
    subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work
    is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world
    government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world
    bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in
    past centuries."
    -David Rockefeller, 1991 Trilateral Commission meeting

    "George Bush has been surrounding himself with people who believe in
    one-world government. They believe that the Soviet system and the American
    system are converging. The vehicle to bring this about, is the United
    Nations, the majority of whose 166 member states are socialist, atheist, and
    anti-American."
    -U.S. Ambassador David Funderburk, 1991

    "It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter to
    which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance."
    -George Bush, 1992

    "[The New World Order] cannot happen without U.S. participation, as we are
    the most significant single component. Yes, there will be a New World Order,
    and it will force the United States to change it's perceptions."
    -Henry Kissinger, 1994

    "Some even believe we (Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal
    working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my
    family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around
    the world to build a more integrated global political and economic
    structure---one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty,
    and I am proud of it."
    -David Rockefeller, 2002 Autobiography

    Educate yourself and awaken the sheeple around you. World Governments have
    been hijacked by a cabal of globalists bent on one world government, world
    bank, world currency, world military, and a micro-chipped population under
    the United Nations. These people have many fronts which you all MUST
    RESEARCH including: the Bilderberg group, the Committee of 300, the
    Trilateral Commission, the Bohemian Grove, the Council on Foreign Relations,
    Skull and Bones Society, the Free Masons, the Knights of Malta, the Illuminati, and the New World
    Order.

  • To Whom It May Concern,

    We are writing this urgent message to YOU! Everyone on this earth not only deserves to know, but needs to know the truth about our history, our reality, and ourselves if we are to make any kind of collective progress.

    The truth is that your entire view of reality has likely been fabricated and manipulated from the moment you were born. We are constantly bombarded with and molded by blatant lies that we have been conditioned into believing. An illusory reality has been created that vast numbers of people are still complacently living in, while others are beginning to wake up. All of the decisions we make and are forced to make in life are influenced and controlled to a much larger extent than most people realize. We are being treated like workhorses with blinders on, forced into narrow channels of choice.

    We think that getting a good-paying job, which likely does NOTHING for the advancement of humanity, or getting good grades in educational systems, which perpetuate these limited and false perceptions of reality, are of the utmost importance. These things have become more important than questioning why are we destroying the planet by digging it up and taking it for everything that it’s worth. Or why we are being forced to kill each other and feel such deep disconnection from one another. These things have become even more important than asking the most basic question of why we are here in the first place! We are being distracted on a mass scale by media, consumerism, manufactured crises, mind control, and a false sense of complacency.

    Those few who have a much darker agenda than many of you may realize are suppressing the very idea that we could live in harmony with the earth and each other. You may have already realized these truth and could be well on your way to changing the world. Or perhaps this is the first time you have heard such things, and can use this letter and information to begin your own personal transformation. It is time for a revolution of the consciousness!

    So we write this letter to inform, uplift, and connect with humanity. Despite continued attempts to hide it, information is available when you know where to look. We have provided a list of topics of interest. All of these topics can be researched in depth on YouTube. This remains as one of the few sources of media, which can be influenced by the people. Keep an open mind and please take the time to research these topics thoroughly before disregarding them. You will find that the more you learn, the more it all ties together and begins to make the utmost sense:

    -coasttocoastam.com (Coast to Coast AM Radio Station)
    -Alex Jones: infowars.com and prisonplanet.tv
    -David Icke, David Wilcock, and Dean Radin /davidicke.com, divinecosmos.com
    Topics for Research
    -Illuminati: New World Order (one world government, global currency, etc.)
    -Reptilian Shape Shifting
    - MK Ultra/Monarch Programming
    -Chemtrails
    -RFID Chips
    -Ancient Aliens (Seasons can be watched on History Channel or YouTube)
    -Mass UFO Sightings
    -Crop Circles
    -Nibiru/Planet X
    -Random Number Generators (in relation to consciousness)
    -The Venus Project (thevenusproject.com)
    -The Zeitgeist Movement (thezietgeistmovement.com)
    -Resource Based Economy
    -Pleadians: Barbara Marciniak (Bringers of the Dawn, Earth: Keys to the Living Library, Family of Light, Path of Empowerment)
    -Falun Dafa/Gong, Meditation, Chakra Healing, etc.

    We could go on, but as you learn about each of these topics you will be lead on your own personal journey and information more relevant to your own situation will be revealed to you.

    We are providing this information, but the rest is up to you. We ask that if you are a receiver of this letter that you continue to spread the knowledge in whatever way you see fit. Once you have read and used this letter for your own awakening, please pass it on to someone new that you feel is ready for this information. It may be a family member, a friend, or a random acquaintance on the street. If you have been particularly moved by this letter, we encourage you to make more copies and either hand them out, send them in the mail, or anonymously place them in populated areas to be found. We also welcome digital circulation of this information, but do take your own safety into consideration by remaining anonymous.
    Above all else, try not to be afraid. This information will seem shocking, and perhaps even terrifying at first. But fear is the greatest power they hold over us. Give yourself time to adjust and don’t berate yourself for feeling overwhelmed. With time you will begin to feel the intense sense of empowerment and love that this information holds.




  • We would also like to try and arrange a simultaneous, large-scale form of intention. After researching Dean Radin and the power of consciousness you may be more inclined to participate. Our goal is to set a date and time for people to collectively have the same positive intention. This type of activity has been scientifically proven to have a quantifiable effect on our surroundings. Having this time set during the full moon each month seems most logical, as this has also been scientifically proven to be the most active time for physic ability. So what we propose is that on dates and times listed, anyone that would like to participate will powerfully and positively intend the message below in an attempt to raise the vibrational frequency of our earth and to overcome the negativity and lies that enslave us. It may be helpful to do this with a group of like-minded people.

    The Message is:
    We are all connected. We live in a prosperous, harmonious, loving earth and universe. We have overcome the evil forces that have deceived us in the past. We love all parts of ourselves, our earth, and each other. We have accessed the truth and information from inside ourselves and use it to progress humankind. We are light, love, and truth.
    Please repeat this message aloud and use your powers of intention and love to make it a reality. If you are aware of the issues at hand, and recognize the potential change intention can create, we urge you to encourage as many positive people you know to participate!
