Imagine the world coming suddenly out of nothing. Close your eyes and listen and you will hear silence and then sounds coming out of that silence. Now use your eyes and see light, shape, form coming at you as a vibration that is proceeding out of space.
Our logic resists such concepts because common sense tells us we can’t get something out of nothing. Normally we think of all the energetic manifestations of this universe as coming out of the past; the things that were here are producing the things that are here now. But I want you to look at it the other way so that you can see the whole world starting now instead of in the past, and the past as a kind of echo fading away into memory, like the wake of a ship that trails across the water and then fades out. But the wake…

“Build it bloodless and they will come”
Perhaps “revival” may be a better word for what we now-a-days like to call “revolution”. Revolution has taken such a negative connotation as violent means are almost always associated with it. Revival, on the other hand, has little to no negative connotations and can effect societies the same if not better.
To put bloodless into context, let me remind you of some of Malcolm X’s words in 1964,
“America is the only country in history in a position to bring about a revolution without violence and bloodshed. But America is not morally equipped to do so.”
A little later he concludes The Black Revolution with,
“Revolutions are fought to get control of land, to remove the absentee landlord and gain control of the land and the institutions that flow from that land. The black man has been in a very low condition because he has had no control whatsoever over any land. He has been a beggar economically, a beggar politically, a beggar socially, a beggar even when it comes to trying to get some education. In the past type of mentality, that was developed in this colonial system among our people, that today is being overcome. And as the young ones come up, they know what they want. And as they listen to your beautiful preaching about democracy and all those other flowery words, they know what they’re supposed to have.
So you got a people today who not only know what they want, but also know what they are supposed to have. And they themselves are creating another generation that is coming up that not only will know what it wants and know what it should have, but also will be ready and willing to do whatever is necessary to see that what they should have materializes immediately. Thank you.”
The plight of the civil rights movement has been largely assuaged at the ballot box. Experience has revealed socioeconomic inequality as an even deeper threat to modern civilization than racial/cultural motives. The hubris of financial persuasion has directly subverted the election process, in America of all places, with Citizens United, recognizing First Amendment rights to corporations even those solely created for “electioneering”. Indirectly, the media is awry with irrational bias suited to any demographic with advertising seemingly contradictory to the virtuous precepts of any respectable philosophy or religion of the world.
Now, revival as I mean it here is the growth of something or an increase in the activity of something after a long period of no growth or activity. That something, actually two somethings, and I get back to my title, are apocalypse and jubilee. I mean the Greek etymological root of apocalypse as in to uncover or reveal and the Abramic tradition of Jubilee specifically the ideas of forgiveness of debts and the leaving of the earth fallow. The second reason for observance of Jubilee found at http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/ states,
“The physico-economic and socialistic theories are that rest from labor is an absolute necessity both for animal and for vegetable life; that continuous cultivation will eventually ruin the land. The law of the Sabbatical year acts also as a statute of limitation or a bankruptcy law for the poor debtor, in discharging his liability for debts contracted, and in enabling him to start life anew on an equal footing with his neighbor, without the fear that his future earnings will be seized by his former creditors. The jubilee year was the year of liberation of servants whose poverty had forced them into employment by others. Similarly all property alienated for a money consideration to relieve poverty, was to be returned to the original owners without restoration of the amount which had been advanced.”
Presently the observance of Jubilee is associated merely with an annual carnival with games, rides, and attractions and apocalypse is a synonym for WW3. There has been a long period with no growth or activity of what these ideas originally mean from the context of the people who created them. A revival of these ideas are pertinent to humanity of the 21st century as a public health concern to the species as a whole and the socioeconomic, spiritual, and psychological well-being of the individual.
Dyer consequences can be nonviolently averted and a “bloodless” revival can happen with a sense of Apocalyptic Jubilee where misconceptions, misgivings, and debts are vanquished not the people that hold them, where value and common sense are commonplace in commerce, where forgiveness can balance with revenge on the scale of Justice, and where money’s detrimental forces are kept from poisoning the well.
To commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this year, let’s take a look at one of his most memorable speeches. “Where Do We Go From Here?” delivered August 16, 1967 at the 11th Annual SCLC Convention in Atlanta, Ga.
A link to the transcript is here:
A link to the audio is here:
“I’m concerned about a better world. I’m concerned about justice; I’m concerned about brotherhood; I’m concerned about truth. And when one is concerned about that, he can never advocate violence. For through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can’t murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can’t establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can’t murder hate through violence. Darkness cannot put out darkness; only light can do that.”
What is your favorite passage?
There’s a way to respect their respectable religious principles and answer “the Jewish Question”.
Karl Marx wrote On the Jewish Question in 1843 5 years before the Communist Manifesto. It is hopelessly out of date. Judaism is at the core of modern life. I believe mankind will not survive unless we answer the Jewish Question.
Marx began his essay by discussing Bruno Bauer’s contention that Jewish emancipation required the creation of a secular state. Bauer said that a secular state required the abolition of both the Jewish and Christian religions. We have an anti-Christian bias in politics, which is fed by Jewish secular leaders. There also is an anti-white bias which also is run by Jewish leaders. When the Jews took over Russia they killed over 60 million white people and probably half of those because they were Christians.
There was at about that time a Jewish-Communist revolution in Hungary led by Bela Kohn who later changed his last name to Kun. His revolution…

Eagle totem is the symbol of freedom with powerful symbolic meaning of timing, victory, and spiritual quest…helping you to discover your personal power and the route to the destiny of your choosing.” – Presley Love
The American Bald Eagle was the perfect animal to symbolize America at it’s revolution and founding. A country founded by men who exemplified the symbolism of the eagle totem and devised the Constitution with the Preamble that states,
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”
I like to think Law in a consummate form will be simplified to a few sentences. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” Considering law in it’s current state and what constitutes legality an “ill Eagle” symbolizes America in 2014 as laws seem to make anyone a criminal.
“The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.” -Ayn Rand
The People’s path to discovery of personal power and route to their own chosen destiny is now like a toll road with sovereignty of passage arbitrary and at the whims of who/what can be bought. Only with payment and the proper licensing is it “lawful” to engage the market and earn a living of their choosing. People can only get as far as they have the money to pay with it’s acquisition dictating their destiny. Our Preamble may read like an inverse if written to reflect current events:
We the citizens of the United States of America, for a disorder forming a more corrupt Union, monetize justice, insure domestic unrest, provide a common offense, promote the general dependency, and secure by the monetization of any blessings of our freedoms while indoctrinating posterity, do disdain and pervert this Constitution for the United States of America for profit.
The police, protectors of the law of the land, swear to the Law Enforcement Oath that states:
On my honor,
I will never betray my badge,
my integrity, my character,
or the public trust.
I will always have
the courage to hold myself
and others accountable for our actions.
I will always uphold the constitution
my community and the agency I serve.
The oath is void as soon it is uttered for reasons that contradict almost every line of it. Immunities from prosecution are in place that make accountability all but nonexistent. A conflict of interest between the public trust and the agency incentivizes protection and service of the agency while rationalizing the extortion of the public. A punch thrown towards an officer trained in modern procedure can warrant a bullet to the head. The greater crime being the assailant’s poor decision to physically lash-out not the officer’s poor decision to unnecessarily kill.
Sir Francis Bacon said this about nature and innovation, “For ill, to man’s nature, as it stands perverted, hath a natural motion, strongest in continuance; but good, as a forced motion, strongest at first. Surely every medicine is an innovation; and he that will not apply new remedies, must expect new evils; for time is the greatest innovator; and if time of course alter things to the worse, and wisdom and counsel shall not alter them to the better, what shall be the end?”
The end, by my reckoning, is the Sun burning out or the Earth splitting in two. Civilization can lose progress bringing about another Dark Age, a vicious cycle of man-made suffering will continue if innovations are not made in time to alter with greater goods the evils men do.
We could decide to heed wisdom’s counsel and history’s warnings, forgive transgressions, and sacrifice our ill-eagle and it’s ways to make like the mythological Phoenix rising to life from what is looking like a path to Death.
Birth seems to be the best starting point for something like this. My birth certificate says that I was born on August 19, 1982 at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Va with a Father and a Mother as eye witnesses. I was the only child from that marriage and the first born. My Dad had a previous marriage with child, an older sister.
My earliest memories coincide with a second-story apartment my father and I resided at on Bainbridge boulevard in Norfolk, VA when I was around 2-3 years of age. I remember an attempt of getting my own bowl of cereal which I accidentally spilled on the floor. I remember jumping on my parents’ bed and injuring my bottom lip on the foot rail. I remember waking up earlier than my parents on one occasion, turning on the TV, and flipping through the channels until I found a show I enjoyed named Pinwheel that aired on Nickelodeon. I remember opening my toy box located in my Dad’s room and seeing what I thought was a live crab. In a startle I ran to get my Dad’s future 3rd wife. When she checked the toy box the crab was gone. I remember looking down the staircase that led to the apartment we lived in and feeling apprehensive of making it to the bottom by myself. The incident of the crab in the toy box still puzzles me. Was the crab ever really there or was it just my imagination?
My biological mother and father divorced before I can remember which led me to believe my Dad’s third wife, was my Mom. A belief I maintained until the age of 7 when the question arose of why I had 3 sets of grandparents. My biological grandfather and stepmother would visit me from time to time which led me to ask that inevitable question. One Sunday before church I remember talking to my biological mom on the phone and discovered I had two more siblings, a brother and a sister, from her new husband. I can’t remember exactly how I felt with this discovery but I’m confident it had a positive impact which led me to pursue to learn more about what I didn’t know.
I was a young boy attending Great Bridge Church of Christ in Great Bridge, VA the first time I heard the words “Jesus” or “God”. The preacher catechized me at my request when I was around 7 or 8 years old and I was baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Innocence was lost soon thereafter.
The concept of being “born again” alluded me then but may have revealed itself little by little over the course of my life in ways seen strange and often contemptible to the society I live. I could expound on that later. A few words which may, as I sincerely hope, illumine anyone in contemptuous doubt with regards to my ambitions and inspirations for this, prior, and future literary compositions are as follows.
Hari Kari or Seppuku is a form of Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment. Seppuku was originally reserved only for samurai. Part of the samurai bushido honour code, seppuku was either used voluntarily by samurai to die with honour rather than fall into the hands of their enemies (and likely suffer torture), or as a form of capital punishment for samurai who had committed serious offenses, or performed for other reasons that had brought shame to them.
Benjamin Franklin wrote in his autobiography that it “shall a good deal gratify my own vanity” siting “being persuaded that it is often productive of good to the possessor, and to others that are within his sphere of action.” Some of my maternal ancestors inspire me to write autobiographical essays; a 2nd great-grandfather Samuel Willard Saxton, a great grandmother Grace Birgfield, and a great grandfather Robert Murphy. An autobiography at 32 seems a little young so a partial testimony seems most appropriate for the present.
“If any ambitious man have a fancy to revolutionize at one effort the universal world of human thought, human opinion, and human sentiment, the opportunity is his own — the road to immortal renown lies straight, open, and unencumbered before him. All that he has to do is to write and publish a very little book. Its title should be simple — a few plain words — “My Heart Laid Bare.” But — this little book must be true to its title.”–from “Marginalia,” by Edgar Allan Poe 1844.
I have fancied suicide as an honorable way to escape from my own scorn, embarrassments, and burden on others. I have fancied to gratify my own vanity and make humble those in my sphere of action with my thoughts into words. I have fancied a revolution in the world, I know I’m not the only one, and I found that they will fail in the same mire of delusion and vexations that covers our adulterated natures.
I think now I should fancy a revolution, not of myself for the world, but of higher power for the innocent, especially children. While exacting no recourse or payment except my own affirmative action; in the faith, hope, trust, confidence, belief, view, whatever term suits my fellow man to conjure the efforts required for liberation to keep the most corruption in the past and the least corruption at its farthest conceivable distance in the future. If this is conceivable, then the rest is sure to follow.
An accurate version of history is among the most important things to impart to students regardless of political affiliation. A party that resembles the party in 1984 by subverting history like the ministry of Truth should lose it’s credibility as a runnable platform.
Have you ever heard someone say that pursuing the liberal arts is a waste of time? Sure you have. The refrain goes something like this: Studying the liberal arts is a waste of time because you’ll never get a job with a “useless” degree in English, Art, or (gasp!) History. A few years back, for example, the estimable Forbes ran an article titled “The Ten Worst College Majors,” and, of course, almost all of them were liberal arts majors. In a similar vein, Thought Catalog troll Matt Saccaro has claimed that the liberal arts, including history and literature, should be outright removed from college in order to focus on “what matters;” namely, making lots of money.
This granite-headed attitude — that the study of the HUMAN EXPERIENCE is now pointless because it won’t make you any…

Why do humans have to make things so complicated? This is a very well put together blog. Thanks

I’d like to tell you about a man named Joe…
I met Joe serendipitously via a forwarded email not too long ago, and contacted him shortly thereafter. It seemed as though Joe was having a few problems and complications while trying to be a free and sovereign man, as well as a “Secured Party Creditor“.
I met up with Joe for coffee just a few days later and found that we had much of the same information and shared many of the same values, including an urgent desire to be truly free human beings on this earth and within this once great country. Joe lives here in Salt Lake County, Utah part-time, part-time in Mobile, Alabama, and in China the rest of the time. Being fortunate enough to have traveled the…
