How Blame-Shifting Is A Key Tactic In Ratifying Oppressive Policies In Nations 

There's a story about a manufacturer, who lays off all his workers then employs cheap immigrant labourers. The laid off workers are angry with the migrant labourers. The factory owner had a few mates play a the card to the news media of foreign workers taking jobs, and is thrilled that they are blaming the migrants instead of himself. The migrants didn't take the jobs from the workers, the manufacturer did. Assange exposed behaviour in the democrats which was nothing short of treachery against Sanders (whom…

Climate Care 

People either care, or they don't. Being caring isn't a part time thing, a hat you put on and take off. It's like being a human. You can't be part time human, and then be a dog the rest of the time. You are one or the other. Choosing to snub an international climate care meeting for ANYTHING makes the Australian Prime Minister a fake carer, a disingenuous fool. What a poor example to set. I'm sure even the Christians are disgusted with what they must see as his fake Christianity practice

WHY "CONSPIRACY THEORY" IS SUCH A USEFUL TERM FOR THOSE DESPERATE TO AVOID DETECTION. 

Conspiring means to undermine, to act in secret to achieve an end, to gather in agreement outside of the control of an official forum. It does not ever confer a negative or implausibility to a plan or evidence. In fact, historically conspirators have been most feared by those in the halls of power - kings, popes, governments, tyrants.... To stand up and say we see, sense or suspect conspiracy, is not making a thing lesser than an official narrative or edict. Especially as the bullying, threats, and…

How much do we want to change ourselves? 

The violence, war, deprivation, and terrible treatment of one another and the environment won't end by blaming others and simply continuing the same education, laws, ethics, priorities and pace of life as we are doing and trying to "add something" to that to magically fix it. It will require a lot of space to pause, and develop support and nurture, in order to begin to heal and flourish in all the places in our souls, hearts, minds, communities and nations where where have been stunted. Only out of this…

The Invisible Government 

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country… It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind".

The False Narrative Of "Balanced Reporting" In The Media 

There is a false narrative about "balanced reporting" being perpetuated by destructive ultra-conservative right-wing groups intent on de-humanising and numbing the conscience of humanity. It goes like this: we should allow equal media coverage to destructive forces destroying the planet and spiritually degrading all human life and conscience on the planet as is given to the coverage of humanist ideals and responsible and altruistic policies which protect the planet and strive for sustainable. non-damaging…

DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS 

DEMOCRACY is where everyone has a voice, and no one's voice is louder or more influential or more powerful because of how much money they have, or because of who they know, or because of how much they want something.

FREEDOM is where everyone can choose the life they want to live, so long as they are not subjecting others to how they think it should be. Freedom is where all information is available without censorship agendas designed to manipulate or withhold hold information to the advantage of some and…

Hurt people hurt people 

Mental illness is the single most influential factor in all the world's problems. Lack of love and empathy towards others is a form of illness.

This makes mental health & wellbeing the world's highest priority. Health & wellbeing is the ability to love unconditionally. If you can't imagine loving unconditionally, try being kind.…
