“These [psychedelic] substances, particularly the plants, are communicating with us, and that their message is that we (human-kind) are on the verge of destroying the planet and that we must take action before it's too late (and hopefully it's not yet too late). ” From the December Monthly Report
“The most fascinating thing that sets your website apart from others is that it addresses the crop circle phenomena on a much wider scale. In short, I've reached my destination. I've spent a good part of the day reviewing over the contents of your site and for whatever it's worth, I feel as it I'm home again.” New listmember Linda Genutis
“Much of what you said about the circles this time was new to me and just make me shake my head and say to myself in amazement, 'Wow…. ' even more. Truly a mystery. This does indeed sound like your Grail quest, finding a way to link the circles with the salvation of our seemingly spiraling out of control world.” Listmember Jim Dreaver, commenting on December Monthly Report
“The one thing Michael Moore does is show how Democrats are just as evil as the Republicans — same stupid white men with just different hats. “Bowling for Columbine” shows in detail how the American system is flawed, and how liberals as well as conservatives drive a system of fear down the collective American conscience. ” Listmember Philip McCabe“I really liked what Daniel Pinchbeck had to say [in a tape I sent him of an interview I did with featured conversationalist Daniel — Suzanne] about how the West is going to get out of this mess….by cleaning it up! Yeah, becoming Buddhists and the like ain’t going to do much for the toxic waste dumps, etc. A true Western spirituality will try to heal the mess our ancestors made of this place, as well as where we are leading the world to today (oblivion?). Very cool insight he had.” Listmember Wade Frazier
“The evidence for the reality of UFOs is now so great that a blind man can see it plainly! What is disturbing is that the American people have become so apathetic that they have lost all curiosity and desire to know more about themselves and their place in the Universe. It is as if they are all brain dead! ” Dr. Henry Monteith writing to me about a recent event in Turkey, where airline pilots photographed UFOs in the process of destroying a large meteor that was about to impact upon the earth.”How did [the Bush administration] have that tremendous confidence? I think it came from the fact that they couldn't doubt their own legitimacy because they were so absolutely certain that what preceded was illegitimate. They had an axis of evil before 9/11. It was Bill and Hillary and Ted and people like Jocelyn Elders, et cetera. They thought he should have been impeached. He was impeached in their hearts. He had no moral authority. And therefore, they felt that they just owned something that had been stolen from them.” Gary Wills on “Face the Nation“
Thanks to William Golden for this. It's more on the journalists' role — an echo of “MEDIA LENS really sees,” posted 12/18. Pilger is one of the best, writing here about the master plan for invasion of Iraq that was in motion before 9/11 — be sure to read the whole piece if you don't know this story. This is how his article ends. John Pilger reveals the American plan New Statesman (London) 16 December 2002

John Pilger reveals the American plan New Statesman (London) 16 December 2002You have to keep reminding yourself this is not fantasy: that truly dangerous men, such as Perle and Rumsfeld and Cheney, have power. The thread running through their ruminations is the importance of the media:”the prioritised task of bringing on board journalists of repute to accept our position”.
“Our position” is code for lying. Certainly, as a journalist, I have never known official lying to be more pervasive than today. We may laugh at the vacuities in Tony Blair's “Iraq dossier” and Jack Straw's inept lie that Iraq has developed a nuclear bomb (which his minions rushed to “explain”). But the more insidious lies, justifying an unprovoked attack on Iraq and linking it to would-be terrorists who are said to lurk in every Tube station, are routinely channelled as news. They are not news; they are black propaganda.
This corruption makes journalists and broadcasters mere ventriloquists' dummies. An attack on a nation of 22 million suffering people is discussed by liberal commentators as if it were a subject at an academic seminar, at which pieces can be pushed around a map, as the old imperialists used to do.
The issue for these humanitarians is not primarily the brutality of modern imperial domination, but how “bad” Saddam Hussein is. There is no admission that their decision to join the war party further seals the fate of perhaps thousands of innocent Iraqis condemned to wait on America's international death row. Their doublethink will not work. You cannot support murderous piracy in the name of humanitarianism. Moreover, the extremes of American fundamentalism that we now face have been staring at us for too long for those of good heart and sense not to recognise them.Comments? Click here
