The next vote should be cast globally, by each and every human being alive on the face of the earth, as though one nation encompasses all ; the issue to be decided may be framed somewhat as follows: Please vote 'Yes' or 'No' to the following proposition:
End by moratorium all war/conflict/violence on earth now and for all times , with no exception, no strings attached, and no room for negotiations.

Each person must let his/her vote be made public and each child is given the vote of "Yes" by the universal recognition that if not corrupted by parents, teachers and governments no child would vote in favor of torture, imprisonment, death, or war.

Please remember that our Maker (& Sons and Daughters of the Holy Spirit)
require that each of us, consistent with our capacity and experience, stand up to and intellectually confront with love in our hearts and with a brave soldier's resolve, those persons who torture, imprison or kill our Brothers and Sisters everywhere on this earth; we may not,for the most part, simply hide under the image of the Great One whom we pretend to worship and thereby presume to live eternally in God's graceful company.
To Billy Graham and others like him :
You are in spiritual and intellectual default as frauds against Humanity/God for sucking up and idolizing the most corrupt and homicidal regime ever known on earth.See this date the following statements by Graham:

Billy Graham on the death of Satan's Own 'Jesse Helms':
11:59 AM Sat, Jul 05, 2008
"Jesse Helms, my friend and long-time senator from my home state of North Carolina, was a man of consistent conviction to conservative ideals and courage to faithfully serve God and country based on principle, not popularity or politics. "

i notice a new clarity of purpose in your writing. something good must be happening to you internally for your real self is shining through so very well. now if we can just get this crystal clear, succinct, and to the point remonstrance to the world at large we might just have something. of course my vote is with you. good show mate! thankyou...

Please see hate mail section for OSU professor's response to this article.Excerpt from the professor:
"As I understand it, providing a name is *obligatory*, under pain of death. I happen to know who cast those ballots: should I go kill them? Or do you want to do that yourself? "
Hate mail :1)

I especially love the idea of children casting votes before they have been corrupted by "mature, responsible" adults  

21 Oct 2004 @ 19:17 by vaxen : tradecraft...
have'nt checked the hatemail sec., , yet, geral, but i shall. we could probably siphon some black money from the quartermasters for a little wet work. i'll think about it. could be fun and, as you know, quite lucrative. ;)
here is a site i think you may enjoy. ingo was one of my mentors in the 'm.e.' proj so very long ago and his writing style is fun and his thoughts are deep blue.  

21 Oct 2004 @ 19:21 by vaxen : Geral:
please forgive my ignorance but would you please tell me just where the 'hatemail' section is? thankyou.  

23 Oct 2004 @ 04:27 by vaxen : Oh...
Thanks Geral. I thought you meant the 'hatemail section' of this site of yours here at NCN (There is'nt one! Duh!). Excuse me. Thanks Geral for the links. A very hateful little section has sprung up here against me, in the mediation room, strange how people who hurt must hurt those whose intent is really to help and be helped. Strange world is'nt it Geral. All the best to you my friend. And thanks again for the links.  

23 Oct 2004 @ 05:09 by ov : link bug
When I click on the second link in Geral's last comment I get his blog inside of my administration blog-face. Some kind of bug in the system here. The problem is caused by this portion of the url "/prof-newslog.php?" which which should be like this "/persnewslog.php?" I think it is strange that the first variation merges the url with the clickers log. Does anybody else have strange things happen on that link?  

23 Oct 2004 @ 21:20 by vaxen : Ah...
it does'nt appear to be a click on, now, ov. Have'nt pasted it into my browser yet to try it as it looks a bit askew. How would you redo it?

Votes are in. Yes carry. All war ends.The fbi 4-10 billion budget stopped in its tracks; the cia 40-50 billion budget trashed; criminal justice system is replaced with civil center for Human Rights. Lawyers, judges, prison guards , etc., displaced for now. New Industry born to elevate all mankind one person at a time in a manner consistent with the glory and wonder of the universe. Jobs abundant on earth and beyond and all workers heartened by the prospects for the recapture of human dignity through self actualization and common purpose.Our work has just begun.
