Last day of the quarter, final class for Contemporary World Cultures, which is what is culture all about anyway, and how many cultures do you belong to?

Then who are all of these economic organizations, - the IMF , the World Bank, and all the rest of ‘em, not to mention all those corporations all over the place, basically running those governments who keep those territories under taxation and control. Not to mention the international monetary mechanisms in all of their maneuverings, not to mention all of that human suffering on the other end o the fulcrum. A few big fat ones on one side and a bunch of skinny ones on the other side.
More and more people are becoming more and more aware of the man behind the curtain, and the man behind the curtain has become rather audacious in his grasp for power. What is all of this doing to the thinking of the indigenous peoples? Why heck, aren’t We the Indigenous peoples of the places we have come up from right now? Indigenous, of the land, from the Land, with the Land, and of the Oceans between all of our lands on this Globe.
All of those national boundaries are artificial constructs, lines on a piece of paper. Your home is where there are those whom you can speak with. Graduation for most in this class will be March. Either look for someone to hire on to, or pay someone money or go into debt to get a higher degree so that maybe some day you can make enough money to buy your own house. We’re talking about all of your tomorrows here. Write an essay telling me how you would change the world if you could, in some less than phantasmagoric, than more reasonably implementable way, within the parameters of alteration for a single generation. For all of us. Are we watching something go by, or are we participating in it, and how do we know the difference?
Write an essay on some corporation and how it influences or impacts the communities it visits. Write an essay on a third world country that has been visited by any number of corporations or international financial institutions. Somebody wants to know. Somebody is concerned. Nobody knows what to do. Don’t tell me I got to go out to the street and spend my time marching around and getting my picture taken, and we’ve all been there before and done that, and look what we got! This is underground revolution. Like getting closer and closer to some denouement.
It all goes by:
Raindrop falls into the ocean.
Wood chip burns to ash.
No, We got daycares to be going to, and families to be taking care of and jobs to be taking care of to be taking care of those families . . .by the way, family is number one around here . . . and homework to be doing, so I ain’t got much time for marching, mind you, but I’m still mad about this Federal Reserve thing if what they is doing is ridin’ on my back. I kinda figured that anyhow, but now they’re trying to cut me out of what little I got, so I just might be beginning to be a little bit disturbed, which leads quite frequently to unpredictable patterns of behavior. No Tellin’.
The veil of fear needs to rendered. When we no longer fear one another, when there is no longer fear between us, we will be on the same side, and the problems we need to solve will be on the other.

It took me a little time to work my head into that word when the letters are all together. Transformational thinking. That's what we need, in as many ways as we can come up with, in order to create the world we deserve, the world that we who care deserve.
*Thought for Tonight*
All I really know anything about is what is going on in my daily life.
We are living on two planets. The Planet of Peace, and the Planet of War.
The later will often invoke the name of the Planet of Peace as an objective to be attained.
The Planet of War perpetuates suffering. There are quite a number of nation-states and ethnic groups who are currently engaged in a seemingly perpetual state of war. Who controls the resources, human labor being one of those resources, and who collects the tribute is the question, and the adversaries are at war with one another in various theaters on various stages around the globe. A passing parade of despots, dictators, and others in their entourage, with any number of wanna-bes waiting in the wings for a chance to play a leading part. The Planet of War is planning to sweep some of the Rif-Raf under the rug, and start up a new planet for their personal evolutionary enjoyment. So here’s that old story of revolutionary upheaval. Been done before, No? And somebody takes charge of something in a big way, and the story continues. Then there is always someone who is gifted in the art of creating inspirational speeches, and the question goes back to where does that speaker want to go with that speech?
The whole world is on T.V. The whole world is on tape. Every nook and cranny of this planet has been photographed, and there are a lot of photographers and movie makers out there, and T.V. show producers. Mass Mentality Manipulation honed to a T. Can you raise yourself out of the coffin of the T.V. box? Can you leave the War, if you are in it?
There is a community of Peace around the globe, populating every nation-state and ethnic group. We are the People of Peace and the People of War really do not understand us. The people of War are protecting us, the people of peace in one nation-state from the people of war of another nation-state, or ethnic group. Actually, neither of these war-machines are doing any good for the people of peace on the planet of peace. We are all one people transcending national boundaries and ethnic identities. There is a contest between selfishness and division on the one hand, and empathy and unity on the other. How can empathy be at war? All of the people of war are battling for the right to control and extract tribute from the people of the Land. You want to change something? Be a part of the Planet of Peace.  

26 Nov 2008 @ 19:08 by vaxen : Chewbacca Defense

Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, Chef's attorney would certainly want you to believe that his client wrote "Stinky Britches" ten years ago. And they make a good case. Hell, I almost felt pity myself! But, ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, I have one final thing I want you to consider. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!
Gerald Broflovski
Damn it!
He's using the Chewbacca defense!
Why would a Wookiee, an eight-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two-foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense! But more important, you have to ask yourself: What does this have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case! It does not make sense! Look at me. I'm a lawyer defending a major record company, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you're in that jury room deliberatin' and conjugatin' the Emancipation Proclamation, [approaches and softens] does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests.[1]


I'm with ya koravya. Thanks for these thoughts, bro.

Raindrop falls into the ocean.

27 Nov 2008 @ 18:58 by koravya : Never Heard
Never Heard any of this Chewbacca defense,
which just goes to show you just how far out of the loop I am,
and is there a reason for that, of course there is no reason for that,
because there is no reason for anything, so why do we have this word
reason if there is no such thing, so there must be a reason but I be gosh darned about understandin' it in its jabarwocky unraveling just what it all is that these guys in the financial community are talkin' about. Are they going round in circles or they simply mad or are they carrying out some well thought out plan, and have they fully covered all of their bases and evaluated all the variables according to the sounds of reason, as reasonable as those reasons may be or not. Are we gonna have a Bastille Day, and a variation of the aftermath?
Who is going to be in charge of what? Yo Ho Ho, and a bottle of Rum.
Thanks for the directions, Vaxen, bro.
