III Flow Powering: Political Change Thyme

Thyme to look at the current political situation in stark reality terms. The congress has decided to declare war against the president and by following the money, we land in the black hole of an undrained swamp. The things we know for sure are mostly false and the whole system has been rigged to provide a fleecing of the sheeple. It is time now to question some of our beliefs and take action to change the things we find unacceptible.

The growing movement of the alt-left and alt-right which avoids the muddle in the middle is called #unrig : hashtag unrig. Dr. Cynthia McKinney and Robert David Steele have united the sides to start a dialog, with listening and hearing each other being the focus. Steele needs to stop insulting us with the same ‘her smart, me dumb’ joke – everybody is in the same boat here.

The political system is rigged. Both McKinney(Green)  and Steele (Reform) were party presidential candidates who experienced the ‘third’ party exclusion. If you do not have a D or an R by your name, the press does not supply any information that is not forced. Doc was treasurer for the Reform Party in the state of Oregon from roughly 1998 – 2003 – started back with Ross Perot in 1992 to prevent the giant sucking sound that was NAFTA/GATT. Aliens at the wedding derailed a likely pre-Trump.

Part of the problems is the assumption of what we are. This system is a capitalist corporate kleptocracy. The game is rigged so far until Tuesday that we just play go along to get along and feel unempowered to do much of anything. Our time is spent keeping up with the Jones and everybody is Jonesing. Let’s question a few basic assumptions.

First – universal healthcare is not important at all. The largest killer of americans is the big pharma/medical complex. Notice how you are investigated criminally if somebody dies without the medical profession present to convey their blessing. The FDA, food and drug administration, is bought and paid for, such that GMO food is sanctioned and preventive medicine banned. If alternative doctors keep dying mysterious deaths, there will be nobody left to treat real people.

Of course, this is a fallacy too, that people need treatment. Our health is our own responsibility and we should all take it seriously. Eat good organic food, drink structured water and try not to breathe the air when they spray chemtrails. The last item here is facetious, but really – let’s stop the spraying yesterday. There is enough data that has been presented against the idea of solar radiation management – the only reason left is population reduction.

The supreme court in the citizens united case declared that corporations are persons, yet these persons are not held responsible for thei contemptful actions. For details – see Farmwars.info for details on genetic engineering, geoengineeringwatch.com for details on chemtrails and many other youtube videos on various sundry ways that the system attacks the individual for stepping out of the sleep state. The president needs to write an executive order to reverse this Scotus ruling – or we do not have the semblance of valid governance.

In fact – why do we think that we need to hold this diverse country together as a single entity? The balkanization of the USSR led to a rearrangement of the Russian sphere of influence – and the massive arming of NATO to combat an insincere threat. The current game of pin the tail on the Putin is not working and threatens to isolate Americans from the new world order arising without our participation. The BRICS bank will replace the Federal Reserve, which is not federal and holds no reserves.

Money is a made up entity and the banksters have ruled the roost, by playing the middle against both ends and expanding without resistance. The need for a common currency to trade is totally artificial – trade can take place in many ways without the current need for accounting everything fiscal. In fact – the political system runs on interest on the capital amassed and when you look at the CAFR – Comprehensive Annual Financial Report – of any jurisdictional entity, you find megamillions of dollars in stocks and bonds that back everything. Our taxes are extractions from persons done to make every American feel the pain.

Back in the aughts, lemme worked to develop a group called the Universal Sovereigns of a Living Earth. We set up a structure of rules and bylaws to guide our actions, based our economy on metals like silver, gold and platinum and started walking a different path. The idea of trading silver for fiat cash in order to purchase cigarettes and drugs led to the instant evaporation of the group – and allowed doc to get out of the american economic and political systems entirely.

Except for the watchers. Every time we appeared in certain places, there were cars with people setting around doing not much of anything. This is normal life in the big city, but in rural areas, it becomes obvious that they are there for a reason related to individual presence. When the same vehicle with the same license plate showed up to watch 100 miles away, we had the game tagged. Thus, using the back door – an escape off the grid and the radar was enacted.

That worked until the powers that be thru amtrak decided to keep doc from reboarding a train in Los Angeles. Homeland security had identified the travelling alias and needed to see some real identification to ensure that doc was doc. Fortunately, at that time the drivers license was still current. If we are not participating in commerse, why do we need a drivers license? Because we believe that we do.  And because we cede our behavior to the law.

They say ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking laws. Yet thousands of laws are passed both by elected officials and appointed bureaucrats and these laws are petty inconveniences to disallow behaviors. The entire economic system has become a series of cartels that control aspects of the business to keep the monopolizers of the business fat. Economy of scale only works when you can organically grow on a reasonable scale. Otherwise, it becomes brutish force.

Doc has been developing a Mondragon economic model based on guild control of operations within their domain of action. If multiple guilds claim jurisdiction, then a new temporary guild is formed to accomplish a task. When finished, the participants can either return to their old status at their prior guild, or remain with the new guild as long as there is still function to be formed. If a guild has no mission, it needs to dissolve.

One other thing to say, before this gets too long. (it already is) The game of environmental dessicration has to stop immediately. The EPA (environmental protection agency) should never have been allowed to grant permissions for pollution. Industrial disease is our biggest challenge. I remember when Lake Erie caught on fire in the 1970’s and the reaction was immediate. Then, shortly after, business as usual returned and now we have things like the deliberate use of Corexit to sink oil spills out of site rather than clean them up. The game of kill the planet’s metabolism has to stop and if all industry has to be shut down and reconstructed, so be it.

The footprint of humanity on the earth is relatively light on an individual level. All of nature groks the concept that you don’t shit in your nest. Except for humanity, with its artificial corporate persons that bear no responsibilty for human action. If corporate leaders were held personally responsible for every business transaction, and the measurement system was based on everything, not just shareholder profit, then maybe we could get a fix on the situation.

Recently, global warming rates of several planets have been demonstrated comparable to earth. The fact that an oort cloud carries more hydrogen to burn in the background may be the explanation. But maybe the electric universe theory has some better ideas as to how everything comes about. Could we set up some learning systems based on actual discovery of knowledge, rather than the current indoctrination of the way it is and the way it will always be.

The New Weigh is ready to publish, yet operating in a world without cash limits doc to not being able to play the publishing game. Existence is a role play game to attempt as many alternative realities as we can imagine, with a true campus being developed to work thing out. Initial focus is on food growth,  home building and infrastructure development. The plan is to use sustainable permaculture as a basis set under the Mondragon model, then to invite other groups to demonstrate ability to improve the current status.

Plans include building tiny housing unts, developing a biodome for processing algae into energy, working on water systems that return cleaner water to the stream that what was removed, and creating small mixed working environments to demonstrate contrasts between different valid approaches. A learning system based on curiosity with direction from the student, not control by the teacher. We are all students and teachers, you cannot be a teacher without continually learning.

Wait. Yes you can. Teachers in public schools today need to follow Linda Shrock Taylor, and get a grip on the purpose of education – creating functional adult persons. Imagine that.

II Mind Sounding: Under Pressure

Freddie Mercury is one of my all time favorite artists. His group Queen was outrageously queer in an age where the closet was full of fraidy cats. Transgender in the late 1970 was not even imagined to the extent that life has become. Being a white hetero male has been an adventure.

When Queen got together with David Bowie and Annie Lennox on stage – the tribute to Freddie was palpably awesome. Annie’s panda mask and butch haircut belie one significant female range – that girl can sing. The intermix of entertainment crosses borders – music reaches all people.

Wars have to end. Peace is our goal. The micro-aggressions that we use to bring each other down are caused by pressure. Why are we under pressure? Because nothing is real and we worry about the wrong things. The chase for money is artificial – the use of money as a lubricant for energy flow has been bollixed by the fiscalization of everything. Our belief system is crumbling because we cannot fathom motive.

Step back – this is our last chance. Step away and defer and if properly detached, you will not even notice a change. Do what your passion is. Get buried in the depths. If we have no valid money, then we still have energy, just not the enormous flow that puts us all under pressure.

At the end of WWII, when reparations were being made, the basques were not invited to the table. This poor region in Spain was fairly isolated and mostly destroyed – the people left in the rural rural community had no real ability to do anything. One of the padres in the area took in a few of the orphans and started rebuilding by training the kids to do stuff.

from Jaques and Ruth Kaswan (1986)

The most spectacularly successful cooperative system anywhere evolved over the last 30 years in Mondragon, a small provincial Basque town in the northern Spain. Though their achievements are closely related to local conditions, the performance of these cooperatives is instructive for others because the challenges they face, like balancing democratic decision making with productive efficiency, or more mundane problems like financing, planning, or relating principles to practice, are similar to the challenges faced by cooperatives everywhere. What works for them may not work for us, but just as they borrow ideas from others, so we might try to learn from them.

What makes the Mondragon cooperatives so successful? Was it the unique leadership of Father Arizmendi, the cultural history of the Basques which stresses solidarity, hard work and self-reliance, luck in that when they started in the late 1950s Spain was entering a period of economic growth? All of these factors played a role. But we believe that the main reasons for their success is the organizational effectiveness in addressing most of the issues all cooperatives must deal with.

The game of Existence is organized using this cooperative model. One of the basic rules is that this is not capitalism. There is no money to be made here. It is a different economic system and thus, if you wish to play here, you must agree to the rules here, which include membership in the Faith and Trust Union (FTU) and exchange through our private mercantile. The game uses hour cards and the grid of 64 – it is explained elsewhere throughout this blog.

The basic principles for the Mondragon are reasonable. First is total democracy in the workplace. If you are part of a job team, you have say in how the job gets done. Period. Everybody is welcome to be participating and full effort is conditioned on having your say, if you are doing your work.

Second principle is that ownership rights are gained by active participation.  This is reflected in FTU membership – the game is not a true community yet. Each of us can play the game on our own, the game is a scoring system to determine merit.

Third principle is success requires participants who are good at their work. This model doesn’t operate well if we have products like those on the shelf at Walmart. Pride in the ability to put out quality is essential.

Fourth principle is continuous monitoring with both positive and negative feedback loops is necessary to proper function. If the data says make a change, you better be willing to change.

On a side note here – i have been validating the Existence metric scoring system by playing fantasy baseball through MLB and Yahoo!  I drafted a team in an auction, and created a second team in a traditional rotisserie draft. The teams were placed 27th and 200th out of all participants – the season is now halfway over. Good luck Hedley Lamarr.

The organization is a mutual support system. We form guilds that address different tasks, with each guild having a specific function that it provides to the community. Guilds are formed on demand to address a task on hand by requesting a participant from each existing guild that has an interest in the project.

The game has four guilds on the sixth tier – Air, Earth, Fire and Water. Your assignment will be based upon your zodiac sign. When you join, first level is information exchange. You then advance to either second level or sixth level, and play the game ascending or descending. If you do not wish to ‘play’, we will also have NPC characters – who have a different motive.

The outside world is not allowed in the inside world. The formal game will be set for weekends – until we have critical mass, the game will be informal. The home team will operate under the model of their choosing and the visiting team will follow the rules, with the caveat that they become the home team for the next game and can set their own rules (within the guild framework).

My time for typing is up – the Kaswan article is available upon request.

BTW – This year the purpose of existence is dedicated to agriculture – starting the ‘farm’.
