Black Horse Chronicle, October 5th

We are free. To embrace what is good and work to develop it, to accept what is painful but necessary and work to harmonize it. As for what is evil, know that as long as a lifetime seems to endure it, this is ephemeral and passes away. The fossil fuel Babylon, although a cycle within itself (as is everything in creation), is also a unique point of evil. It is ahistorical and spliced into the normal and normative run of history, and shall be expunged leaving only whatever lesson we were supposed to learn. It is the antithesis of the prior unique point of grace, the Incarnation of Jesus from without history but starting a new element of history in the form of the Holy Spirit, come to reinforce the great lesson of Truth.
.
Babylon now falls, as the black horse rides in the image of the cesspool and the promise of its destruction. We must endure great tribulation through its throes of death. But know that the destructive, the symbolism of man’s evil, is dialectically integrated into the revolution, redemption, renaissance, and restoration.
.
1. The first city is promised to eat of the tree of life, but first it must endure the storm of hail, fire, and blood which burns up and kills the trees and grass. It must restore its garden in mind and soul and body, and water it wholesomely. Only so shall it endure and come through the tribulations of the sixth seal.
.
2. The second city shall receive the crown of life and go unscathed in the second death, but its first death shall be an ordeal to endure. It must hear the winds of woe and stand faithful unto death.
.
3. The third city will discover secret blessings and a new name once it overcomes its own wavering amid the winds of the great woes, the hurricanes and earthquakes it conjures to itself, the blotted sun and moon, the terror of the voices of Truth. The crucible must melt down weakness itself and remold it as strength. This new name shall be Gaia.
.
4. The fourth city in renouncing power shall receive power and shall be guided by a morning star. It must follow this star and not be seduced by the hurtling stars of the woes of war, the plagues of air, the blazing meteor of the seventh seal. These all rage for the final destruction of the wickedness of the dying day, not for the beginning and resumption of the new day, for whose path the morning star is a guide.
.
5. The fifth city has largely died away leaving only a false name. But a handful of the worthy who have not defiled their garments shall receive the white raiment and the testimony of Truth before God.
.
The white and red horses rampage and rage, twinned scourges of merciless majesty and berserking rape and massacre. At the trumpet the four angels break free and unleash again the spirit of total war which has raged unabated for a hundred years. It reaches two world war climaxes and shall reach its third. Satan reels in ecstasy, the beast of Babylon struts and primps, and the propagandist who balances it all upon a single lie pulls furiously on the thousand wires.
.
The pale horse of Death and Hell follows close. Not the second death, nor Gaia’s holism of the first death, but the terror image of death, and the terror image of hell, both productions of the propagandist.
.
But the pale horse rides with the reality of violence and hunger and pestilence, it is driven by Babylon’s campaigns plunging humanity and earth into these evils, by the oil-driven technology which hones them all to their most murderous poisonous tips and extends their blades to their most murderous lengths. Yeah more the propagandist amplifies the false words and the false ideas of these, to enslave all minds before enslaving and murdering all bodies.
.
First he has marked all with the globalization mark, the mark of the beast, which is the mark which intends to outlaw humanity forever and to conjure and empower a race of demons, the corporations, forever.
.
But second comes the vial of the angel which shall heap sores and burns on all who worship the demons, and shall cause the demons themselves to shrivel back into the nothingness from whence they came.
.
6. The sixth city has an open door, shall not be tempted, and must only have the patience to work, prepare, endure, and celebrate the coming of the New Jerusalem.
.
7. The seventh city has been spit out for being lukewarm. Shall it be spit out? Or shall it sit alongside Jesus on his throne, as he promised those who took up his cross and became his disciples.
.
The New Earth Church must be founded, and it can be founded everywhere. We all can redeem ourselves, as we free ourselves and begin the work of the Spirit and Earth, to prepare the ground for the descent of the New Heaven and New Earth where the ecotrinity of Goddess/God and Humanity and Gaia shall be consummated in one glorious city. Let all the seven cities join to imitate and aspire.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 4th

1. The books of the prophets tell always the tale of what men inflict upon themselves. God does not send the woes, does not cause the woes, but allows the woes. Why God allows the woes is the great Mystery. It seems the great conundrum of the human journey, why it’s always been possible for a mere handful of the wicked to direct the great multitude against all their natural tendencies to neighborness and cooperation. This is the eternal conundrum neither theology nor secular political theory have been able to solve. Yet the solution is the key to the ecological renaissance, revolution, restoration, and redemption. The only thing clear is that this solution requires a spiritual great leap and breaking free. Nothing we can know using the names and marks of Babylon can avail.
.
2. God does not send the woes, but he does send the inner strength and the great aspirations and helps articulate the themes and ideas and plans and helps reinforce the will to act, all to the help of anyone who has faith in the cycles of life, the logic of history, and the grace of God. Therefore God sent himself Incarnated as Jesus Christ, and therefore Jesus in turn suffused us with the Holy Spirit. This Spirit is the medium of all the graces sent by God, requiring only that we accept the grace of faith to activate the rest. Thus the Holy Spirit suffuses us always, as it suffuses and is concurrent with the entire ecology. And Jesus himself remains with us always.
.
(3. Nor does this exclude the modes of God’s revelation through other cultures. God is manifold. His graces come in many styles. We all swim amid the same Spirit, but call it by many names.)
.
4. This must be known, for as things are humanity has become completely bottlenecked, log-jammed, while we and the Earth are under the most dire assault which designs our total death.
.
5. Yet though the power that assails us is vast, the prime cause of our paralysis is our inability to think. Not only are we mired in the slough of despond, but we struggle languidly in the quicksand of confusion. The beast himself is not so powerful, but we seem helpless confronted by the second beast who conjures with nothing but “the image of the beast” and “does great wonders” through his “power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13) Our minds are captive entire of the mirage of Babylon. “Your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries were all nations deceived.” (Revelation 18)
.
6. All this is the work of the second beast, the propagandist, the great orchestrator of mass media. The beast is nothing, the image of the beast murders our bodies and souls.
.
7. The only night has been in the benighted minds of men, and the only paralysis is the poisoning of the mind. But as another prophet wrote, “All things are ready once our minds be so.”
.
8. The first step is to renounce all we’ve been told to know, for it is a passel of mistakes. Free our minds, and we shall unleash our souls.
.
9. The road is hard and full of tribulation. Jesus warns how difficult and painful it may become in Babylon, in Matthew 10, and Mark 13, and Luke 12 and 14, and elsewhere. Indeed such trials, for the good people, are worse than the extremities of persecution by an enemy.
.
10. But in the same word He also encourages us, “My yoke is easy, but my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30) When once we have freed ourselves of the blinders, the hardest part of the job is done, for then the rest can begin. The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. It is weak in the mind.
.
11. Thus our great foe is not the awesome strength of a monster, but the thin and faltering image of a beast thrown up by a “second beast”, a “false prophet” (Rev 19:20), a flunkey. The first beast barely exists, and its image can be dispersed by the whisper from the wings of a butterfly. This comes the moment we cease to believe in what is false.
.
12. “For the want of a nail the kingdom was lost.” For the want of worship of its image, the beast shall be killed, and the devil’s kingdom shall be lost.
.
13. And God extends to us the nail of faith and ideas to shod ourselves, unto victory in the battle and the rescue of the kingdom, the consummation of the New Heaven and Earth. The broadest arcs already span the sky in all colors and all the creatures of the creation sing. All things are ready once our minds be so.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 3rd

1. The black horse bears its balances across a blasted, haunted landscape hung with the night of ignorance. You stare hypnotized at the scales as they seem to weigh all love and food in exact proportion to a cairn of coins, and don’t see how the whole world comes unbalanced, tips and turns over.
.
2. Break free, shake off, lift your eyes and look! The world is upside down. The world – the great trinity, God, Humanity, Earth – is sprawled in devastation. All degree is disrupted, all balance is lost. The black rider is the master of illusion and the propagator of conceit.
.
(3. We see why the devil’s most cherished playthings are not even the material products of technology but the propaganda chimeras of scientism, the things which barely exist at all except as fantasies and delusions and lies, such as genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, space travel, or the peaceful use of nukes. This especially resides in anticipation of the all too real use of them in war.
.
4. But we see the great confluence of fantasies of Mammon as the economic golems, the government’s corporate persons and the Fed’s money and Wall Street’s securities and the devil’s own “intellectual property” clasp and fuse with the technological golems of the scientism cult. If the term “seeds” may be used to encompass the Satanic patenting onslaught upon life itself, literal life enclosed within the false and fictive slave bounds of patents, then we can take the longstanding political acronym FIRE (Finance, Insurance, Real Estate, as the first three great horsemen of the apocalypse of the false, self-cannibalizing meta-economy) and amend it to the FIRES sector. Verily it does describe the great bonfire of all human productivity, prosperity, happiness, and hope. This tyrannical economy of Babylon is based upon literally nothing but fictions and lies.)
.
5. Thus Belial once again earns his title, Lord of Lies. The devil wouldn’t stand a chance without the multitudes who yearn to believe his lies. He’s not even a good liar, and his worldly minions are pathetically incompetent. But with the sinful credulity of masses, all things become possible.
.
6. As the legion of corporate demons rampages over the earth and throughout our minds and souls, as the black rider of Revelation brandishes the scales as broadcast by the book, the book’s descriptions of the churches of John’s time still reverberate. The divisions are timeless. Thus book still sends its word to the Ephesians: You’ve worked hard, “not fainted”, supported the true activists both of radicalism and of reform, and rejected the explicit corporate liars. But you still dream of a solution within the corporate Babylon and even contemplate the “leaving of your first love” to the corporate demon state’s control. Thus it is with anyone who still yearns to place the business of the ecotrinity of God, Humanity, and the Earth under the domination of the corporate state; they all leave and lose their first love. Co-existence is impossible and such surrender will never be anything but complete and forever. “She that hath an ear, let her hear what the Spirit says unto the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
.
7. To Smyrna goes the exhortation to keep fighting as you have, and continue your works, in spite of the tribulations you must face. “She that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death”, but “shall receive a crown of life”. “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.”
.
8. Pergamos endures amid a bedeviled circumstance and has “held fast” and “not denied faith” while Thyatira demonstrates exemplary “charity, and service, and faith, and patience, and works; and the last to be more than the first.” But they are spiritually confused and prone to backsliding, as their affinity with Babylon and yearning for compromise and co-existence blinds them to the ultimate impossibility of their path. Worse, their blindness and corruption extends to toleration and embrace of idolatry and superstition toward various corporate hoaxes and civics textbook lies. “You suffer that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”
.
9. Today’s Sardis “has a name that you live, and are dead.” Indeed we endure daily an invasion of the undead hordes, dead names which still find sinfulness and credulity with which to conjure among the masses. Today the very word “politics” is the deadest of names and most virulently mesmerizing of zombies. The true politics of life is a fully participating way of life and is as growing food and pumping water. And so every idea of the mind and vibration of the spirit may proceed along the line of life, which leads resolutely away from Babylon forever, or down the pit of death. “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.”
.
10. The good word hails the stalwarts of Philadelphia. Especially across the bright crest of the Earth the faithful and courageous fight with clear minds, brave hearts, pure souls.
.
“I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it…Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth…She that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and she shall go no more out: and I will write upon her the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon her my new name. She that has an ear, let her hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.”
.
11. Scraping the bottom of the barrel, the lukewarm Laodiceans are still with us and still seek to smother all sparks which bring fire and life. “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Jesus deplores the lukewarm and prefers to them even the cold, not because he endorses the cold, but because recognition of the cold and confrontation with it is necessary for the hot to attain its full flame and spread its sparks to all possible tinder. We need the great conflagration, we need the majestic speedy wildfire. But the lukewarm, falsely in the name of warmth, want to dump the swill to douse all sparks and preempt all future life.
.
.
Let Jesus make it clear once and for all: “How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.” (Mark 3:23-26)
.
This ultimately shall be part of the downfall of Babylon and the corporate dominion, as there is such division among its constituency. But a faithful few forced into dissidence and exile do not have the luxury of dividing against ourselves. We haven’t this luxury in mind, where so many divide a corporation, or a government bureaucracy, or a technology, or a propaganda campaign, or Babylon as a monolithic whole, into a schizophrenic duality and seek to find the devil to love and cherish amid the devil to oppose. We haven’t this luxury in action, which follows divided on account of this duality, derelict from the great need and necessity even as it acknowledges the need. We haven’t this luxury in spirit, where every sign in heaven and earth calls us to a triune ecological holism, God and Humanity and Gaia, unbroken, seamless, One.

Moonshine Eugenics

<

Heard of bathtub hooch? I like the Simpsons episode where Marge has to complain, “Homer, your homemade liquor is exploding again.” And then there’s the way it strikes drinkers blind or gives them lead poisoning.
.
Well, looks like we’re going to have lots of Homer Simpsons whipping themselves up some bathtub Frankenstein monsters – plants, animals, their own children, even the sky’s no limit, as the scientism cult chants. According to the hype for these Do-It-Yourself Eugenics kits, random scumbags will be able to take a break from their meth labs to tinker with genetic engineering and environmental release right from their basements. (Not that corporate deployment is any less sloppy or reckless.) In discussing a lukewarm UK “bioethics” report, GMWatch gives as one of the reasons for the lameness of the recommendations: “tighten[ing] regulation in this field….would increase public alarm about the risks of gene editing at a time when the UK government wants to reassure people of the safety of the technology…”
.
It’s probably true the British government, media, and science establishment are concerned about this possibility. But it seems to me that we could turn that around on them, saying to the people, “You were already worried about the corporate system’s GMOs. Now look at what a chaotic, deranged free-for-all genetic engineering is becoming. It’s like you feared all along – it’s complete recklessness and chaos, there’s zero controls, and literally no one has the slightest idea what they’re doing, how extremely dangerous this all is, or how horrific the effects are going to be.”
.
The most vile thing is that the kits are designed to generate antibiotic resistant E. coli, just for the fun of it. If you weren’t already convinced by systematic antibiotic abuse in CAFOs and regular genetic engineering, are you now convinced that governments, corporations, and scientists are systematically working to eradicate antibiotics as an effective medical treatment, because they want this type of medicine to cease to exist.
.
I say each and every person involved in any aspect of any of these campaigns to eradicate antibiotics is guilty of first degree murder in each and every case where someone’s death is related to antibiotic resistant bacteria, and of assault or attempted murder in each and every non-lethal case. I also apply full civil liability to each and every individual involved. These criminal and civil liabilities follow from strict application of conspiracy law. Certainly each and every one of them knows exactly what he or she is doing.
.
Where it comes to all these crimes, we are far, far past the point of ignorance or honest confusion.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 2nd

>

1. The only night was in the benighted minds of men. When we become truly enlightened, the moon and stars shall shine as the sun.
.
2. This new moon’s resolution is to describe the progress of the black horse of Mammon. In the fossil fuel Babylon all four horsemen of the revelation comprise the image of Mammon and the evil of Mammon, and also the revolution which must and will destroy Babylon and Mammon. This is the duality of the entire Book of Revelation.
.
3. The black horse rides before the beast who controls corporate buying and selling: Commodity. (Revelation 13) Commodification and all the evils which follow intentionally from its design – war, genocide, ecological devastation, famine, pandemics, mass death, infinite psychological alienation and spiritual desolation – is the primary manifestation of Satan today and of all times.
.
4. Jesus begins his career with his stark rejection of this great evil: “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give you, and the glory of it: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If you therefore will worship me, all shall be yours. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Luke 4:5-8)
.
5. Satan promises the same to those who worship him through his cult of technology. As anti-Christian heresy this temptation and corruption has existed for over a thousand years within the very folds of the faith.
.
6. Thus science worships at the altar of the beast, having fully and joyously surrendered and desecrated itself to the mark of the beast which controls the buying and selling.
.
7. How can we be redeemed? Jesus directly, unequivocally condemns the evil of Mammon: “You cannot serve God and Mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)
.
8. Yeah more, Jesus teaches us to “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.” (Mark 12:17) He follows immediately: “The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” (Mark 12:29-30) Therefore is there nothing left for Caesar. Thus whatever one gives unto Caesar and Mammon out of one’s heart is stolen from God.
.
9. Thus scripture makes clear that temporal power, the power of politics and money and weapons, and the temporal elections according to these, derive all from Satan. (Matthew 4:8-10, Luke 4:5-8) Temporal power is of the devil, as scripture implies and as Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor explicitly confirms: “We are not with Thee, but with him, and that is our secret! For eight centuries have we abandoned Thee to follow him. Eight hundred years now since we accepted from him the gift rejected by Thee with scorn; that last gift which he offered Thee from the high mountain when, showing all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, he saith unto Thee: “All these things will I give Thee, if Thou will fall down and worship me!” We took Rome from him and the sword of Caesar, and proclaimed ourselves sole rulers of the earth…We have taken the sword of Caesar, and in taking it, of course, have rejected Thee and followed him.”
.
10. Nor is this only the word of the Bible. All spiritual and philosophical paths agree, for this is a moral truth universal. It is proven also every day in every arena of moral and practical life. What one gives to Mammon is stolen from God, and from humanity, and from Gaia herself.
.
11. This condemns all levels of Mammon’s election, from the most mundane to the most (anti-)spiritual. You cannot serve God and Mammon. The Spirit, nor humanity, nor the Earth, cannot co-exist with Satan’s minions, the corporate person-demons, which in the fossil fuel Babylon comprise the organized form of Mammon and Satanism.
.
12. Jesus rejected greed and temporal power as temptations of the devil. But you, a low sinner, believe they’re appropriate for you? God is indeed patient with you.
.
13. There is no way forward in Babylon. Repent of this folly once and for all, and never look back. There is no past in Babylon, only emptiness. Revolve back to the true timeless spirit, which is also the spirit of the New Beginning.
.
14. For in the Spirit and Gaia and her revelation past and future and present exist in One, and exist as grace and beauty and happiness. But in Babylon all time is desecrated to evil and nothingness, and all space is poisoned, all spirit and all flesh. The Spirit calls upon us to redeem all or lose all.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 1st

1. The only night was in the benighted minds of men. The light of the new communion of heaven and earth shall bring eternal day to mind and soul. In the communion of the new heaven and the new earth the godly human city shall be illuminated forever with peace and grace. But first we must purify and redeem ourselves upon this earth.
.
2. “And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5-6) Thus rides the scourge of globalization, the scourge of the rule of the corporate persons/demons.
.
3. This night the black horse has ridden under a new moon. But this new moon is not the moon smitten and darkened as in the revelation, but is rather the celestial token of new beginning. The revelation is also of the simultaneous new beginning and revolving back, the holism of revolution as the communion of past and future, the holism of history and nature, of God and Earth.
.
4. This future of eternal day in the mind and soul is promised by the corresponding and opposite destruction culminating in self-destruction portended by every sign of the demonic corporate-ruled present. This fossil fueled present is passing away in great tribulation as it burns itself out in body and spirit, as its smoke fills the heavens.
.
5. In ever greater desperation the addict Babylon plunges ever more filthy needles searching out uncollapsed veins, and it repeats hitherto unavenged crimes seeking to deliver this toxic lifeblood to its machines of power. Its temperature soars beyond all bounds of fever in body and soul, driving the extremes of physical torment for the Earth and spiritual agony for the people.
.
6. But the hedonist masses still exalt Babylon and “neither repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornications, nor of their thefts.” (9:21) Thus they still reject the heavenly election and clamor for the Satanic.
.
7. The clinging masses envision an “election” in the same and opposite theological way that Paul, Augustine, Luther would use that term. The opposition is between contemplating a congregation of people as being “elected” by God, as opposed to an atomized mass congealing to “elect” their own secular version of God, a “Leader” to preside over the great auto da fe, the bonfire of the humanities on behalf of the vanities.
.
8. The revelers of Babylon have not yet hit rock bottom, have not yet lurched to ground zero, but the bell tolls for their revels.
.
9. There is one and only one way to avert the worst of all the crises: Greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, stop destroying carbon sinks, rebuild carbon sinks. This means abolish the corporate demons. This means Babylon must be forsaken, reviled, destroyed.
.
10. The most direct and necessary way to confront the crises of climate chaos, fossil fuel derangement, and the anti-sacrament of poison-driven mass murder/suicide is to abolish industrial agriculture, the core sector of Satan. This abolition is the one and only way to conserve and rebuild humanity’s place amid the Earth.
.
11. How long, O Lord, before they hit rock bottom? How long to reach ground zero? Are there eyes left to see the light? Is there time to repent?
.
12. “Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men it is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:25-6) With men alone it is impossible, and most of all is it impossible in Babylon where men worship the corporate person-demons and with demented rage deny God, humanity, and Earth.
.
13. Babylon is impossible. There is no way forward in Babylon.
.
14. The crimes have gone too far, the sins. The destruction and corruption are too profound. We must repent of Babylon forever, repent of Sodom and never look back, lest our corrupted yearning turn us to salt forever, even as we now so ardently salt our own soils.
.

Labor Day; Or, Sufficient Unto the Day is the Good and the Evil Thereof

>

Our true work expresses our humanity. We who are still able to perform our fruitful work thus retain this portion of the human birthright. But we who have been forcibly sundered from our human work and forced to “work” for an alien institution have been robbed of our birthright.
.
Therefore we who have the honor and the misfortune, we who have been fated to live in this time of the worst perversion of the human endeavor and the most confused divergence from the true path of history, face a twofold work requirement.
.
We must, as ever, do our human duty, fulfill our human responsibility, perform our human work. But today the core element of our work is the work of rejecting and resisting the false “work” of Mammon, of commodity production, of globalized false “trade”, of corporate rule. This false work, this false buying and selling, is nothing but selling our souls and the purchase of perdition, enslavement, death.
.
How have we come to this dead end? Mythology says we fell from the Garden of Eden and have been cursed with the need to toil ever since. The forces of evil have sought power over our very toil, turning us into slaves either directly in the formal sense or by monopolizing access to work and controlling the modes of work, so that only as robots can we function in the world of “work”.
.
Worse, although this exile was a primal sundering and alienation from the source of our being and soul, the gravid Earth, we have been taught falsely to view this exile as a journey toward freedom, toward prosperity, toward knowledge and transcendence. Never has a more obscene Orwellian inversion been performed than this version of “Slavery is Freedom” which has been shouted from every false pulpit for thousands of years, and never with greater omnipresence and volume than in the modern today, the moment of fossil fuels.
.
The myth really means the exact opposite. Adam and Eve were organic and ecological in the Garden. They were integrated, elemental, primal. They lived as the lilies of the field. But Satan seduced them to desire the alleged knowledge which would make them as gods. Thus they broke the unity, broke the integration. The Original Sin was scientism itself. The original curse was the sundering of humanity from nature, the exile, the alienation.
.
Since then this same Satan has taught us to believe we must replace the primal foraging and horticulture, living with the lilies in the Garden, with the gruesome and destructive toil of industrial agriculture and its epigones in every economic, political, and cultural sector. Destructive of the Earth, destructive of our bodies, destructive of our souls.
.
Jesus echoes this as he speaks to the multitudes in the Sermon on the Mount:
.

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, How shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: ) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.

33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

.
The meaning and truth of this is unchanged if you remove “God” and replace him with “the Earth”. Even the most fundamentalist secularist must make the same choice between faith in the Earth’s natural bounty or faith in the godhood of the engineer’s technology to render what he calls the sterility of the earth fertile. The natural fruit is truth, the artificial is a lie. This is the same truth and lie confronted by every religion, including the religion of scientism and technocracy. So make no foolish distinction between modern “enlightenment” and medieval darkness. All modes of thought have equal potential for light or dark, depending upon how they embrace the truth of ecology or the lies of Mammon and technocracy.
.
The same is true of Jesus’ injunction to his disciples, as he sends them out to minister:
.

Matthew 10:9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

Mark 6:8 [He] commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

.
These injunctions are addressed to all of us as well. We all need “take nothing”. If we lived in truth, true scientific knowledge, and moral good faith, this plus the agroecological bounty would feed us beyond all hopes of prosperity, fulfillment, and happiness. These passages refer to the true reclamation, healing the sundering breach and restoring humanity’s earthly connection. This is the true redemption and reunification. Agroecology and Food Sovereignty offer the promise of this revolution and restoration.
.
The true restoration and reclamation process is to be and live as ecologically as possible, in mind, soul, and action. Expelled, we can still work in harmony with the Earth. This is the true imitation of the life in the Garden, and is also the embodiment of the true science. Agroecology is the process of rendering agriculture and all of life more holistic, more organic, more integrated. Only through agroecology and its equivalents in every context can we overcome the alienation, imitate the Garden of Eden, and present our work to God, history, or reason, however we envision, as proving we’ve learned the lesson, and in any case come as close as we can to paradise on Earth.
.
This does not mean lack of work, or especially lack of joy in the work we do for our own people. Rather, it means working only to guide Earth’s great abundance, to bring Earth’s profligate bounty, itself a free gift of the Earth itself, to a fruition most fruitful for a humanity who also is of the Earth and restores Earth even as we eat of it. The true productive work is the work of tending the natural abundance.
.
Unfortunately the great projects of humanity which sought to provide guidance for this endeavor have lost their way, have betrayed humanity and the Earth. Organized religions have become beholden to Mammon and abdicated their spirit, while “leftist” secular politics also completely embraced the demon of productionism and commodification, thus nullifying itself as a possible way forward for humanity. Thus we have the malign twin truths, God is Dead and Politics is Dead. Each has been swallowed up by the demons of scientism and the corporate person. Each has been swallowed up in death.
.
Today the propaganda of the beast resounds as if from the heavens, its signal boosted infinitely by the corporate media omnipresence. We see how it offers its false decadent lying substitute for the aspirations of faith. The accursed “Feed the World” theology is a false version of grace from on high requiring no works. But in truth this false grace is 100% contingent upon the works of Mammon, meaning that one must undergo the ritual of paying money.
.
Thus Mammon’s grace is the grace of being born rich, while the works it imposes upon the rest of us comprise the constant practice of the money ritual, procuring money and disposing of money. All human activity at both ends, producing (being allowed to rent a “job”) and consuming (total dependency upon the ritual “purchase” from a mysterious source), must be mediated through these ritual religious works.
.
Contrast the promise of Food Sovereignty, the true feeding of body and soul, where we the people feed ourselves out of the righteousness of our human work, no Mammon, no contingency, only our free work for ourselves, our families, our communities. This is the true grace.
.
Therefore let our holiday give all respect to the righteous who do the necessary work, conscientiously, in good faith. But let it also teach us that under the rule of Mammon most of the work is unnecessary, most is imposed by force, by circumstance of the Fall. What’s more, gratuitously even by the lights of the Fall, Mammon forces commodity production, productionism for its own destructive and tyrannical sake. Secularists call this “capitalism”, though it is veritably a religion. The world is as suffused with religion as ever. It is merely, temporarily, in the clutches of the most malign, destructive, benighted religions of Mammon and scientism.
.
Do you want to produce food for human beings, or commodities and poison for corporate “persons”, a kind of demon? True work is the former, false perverted work the latter. The same is true in every other economic sector. Indeed never has the very idea of food been so laden with symbolic religious significance as it has become in this modern age, because this is the most religious age of all. Food is literally and spiritually the core battleground and ground zero for the whole of the great climactic struggle for the soul of humanity, the realization of the future, the very existence of the past, and the question of whether there shall ever, in the present, be freedom and fulfillment. The time has come where the only true work is the work of this great crisis.

March Against Monsanto 2016

>

Saturday May 21st will be the fourth annual March Against Monsanto. It’s a day of solidarity and action for the growing world movement against this worst of all corporate scourges. There will be hundreds of actions around the world. While these demonstrations by themselves won’t suffice to abolish the Poisoner onslaught, they’re a transitional form between the initial awareness and the formation of the real abolitionist movement.
 
This day of action for health and freedom is a punctuation of the worldwide day-to-day resistance movement across the world. If the event was thought up in the West, and is top-loaded with North American events, this is because the West hasn’t yet developed a permanent basis for a constant, relentless, disciplined struggle. But along with the community rights, food sovereignty, and labeling movements, the publicity and education stemming from this event will help generate a political will and recruit abolitionists who will then form the fighting organizations we need.
 
There’s many reasons to fight to abolish Monsanto and GMOs. They’re agriculturally and environmentally totalitarian. They inevitably contaminate all other crops and the environment and accelerate soil, water, air, and habitat destruction. They accelerate the same climate change which is cited as one of the reasons corporate ag must allegedly provide “new technology”. The more that GMOs are field tested and commercialized, i.e. the longer they exist at all, the worse this contamination shall become, and the more we’ll pass points-of-no-return where the contamination shall become significantly malign and irreversible.
 
They’re economically and politically totalitarian. GMOs are designed primarily to maximize pesticide use and force humanity into a complete, permanent dependency on an ever-escalating welter of pesticides, even as pests develop ever increasing resistance. The GMO cartel is escalating what’s already a non-competitive monopoly concentration in the seed sector. It aggressively uses this position to build horizontal and vertical monopoly power, enforce its dictates up and down the food production and distribution chains, drive non-GM seed varieties out of the market (and out of existence), greatly jack up seed prices, force obscenely lopsided “contracts” upon farmers, persecute farmers with harassment, thuggery, and lawsuits, and get governments to enact repressive seed laws intended to escalate and accelerate this whole process.
 
That’s just one way in which the GMO cartel has seized control of governments around the world. While governments are controlled by corporate power in general, the kind of control being exercised by the GMO corporations, and the unique threat to humanity and the Earth posed by such corporate control over agriculture and food, render this form of corporate control over government particularly clear and present danger to the future of humanity. People can try to argue about the implication of corporate power where it comes to other sectors, but there can be no argument here – humanity must purge this clear and present danger to our freedom, our democracy, and our literal survival.
 
GMOs also present a clear and present danger to our health. All independent studies, and even almost all of the corporations’ own rigged studies, find reason for concern or alarm. The genetic engineering process itself, and the massive glyphosate residues in our food and water, wreck our microbiome (our internal gastrointestinal microbial community with which our bodies cooperate for mutual health), cause gastrointestinal inflammation which leads to every kind of disease, trigger escalations in allergies, asthma, autism, and every other kind of autoimmune disease, cause cancer, organ damage, infertility, miscarriages, and birth defects. These are just the best documented effects. Glyphosate-tolerant crops are also nutritionally denuded, and eating the processed foods made from them merely adds to the nutritional deficiency already inherent in diets centered on such “foods” and the many diseases this causes or exacerbates.
 
The most amazing thing is how all this is because of such a pathetic, worthless product. GMOs are shoddy, retrograde, luddite products which don’t work for any purpose which could actually help people. Their yield is poor, no improvement over non-GM conventional agriculture; they require far more pesticides than conventional agriculture; by helping weeds and insect pests build resistance to pesticides, they generate superweeds and superbugs against themselves, uncontrollable by the same poisons which were supposed to be the reasons for having these GMOs in the first place; the “special” GMOs – those for drought resistance, vitamin fortification, nitrogen-fixing, etc. – are all media hoaxes.
 
All these factors build the despair, anger, and sense of social, political, and economic bottlenecks and cramp which are driving the March Against Monsanto and the vast global movement of which it’s a part.
 
The trenchline runs across the global South, while here behind enemy lines in the West we are rising to take back our corporate-invaded land and agriculture.
 
On every front, from Southern farmer opposition, to Western consumer and citizen opposition, to the growing consensus that GMOs are shoddy and inferior in every way to either organic or non-GM conventional production, to the cartel’s own broadening implicit admission that GE doesn’t work for anything beyond poison delivery, to the incontrovertible fact that nature is routing GMOs on every front, and that all the new-fangled “second generation” products are nothing but desperate rearguard actions against the surging weeds and insects (which can be controlled effectively only through agroecological practices), it’s increasingly clear that nothing but brute force keeps GMOs in the field at all, literally or politically/economically. GMOs are about nothing but greed for money and power, and are the enemy of every human value.
 
The March Against Monsanto is part of the rising counterforce of humanity which shall break and rout this scourge upon our earth.

Three Notes on Communication in the Poison War

>

1. Monsanto’s liars keep fighting the bad fight trying to spin their failure in Burkina Faso.
.
As a connoisseur of corporate media bias, I found it refreshing that this Bloomberg piece actually was written according to what’s supposed to be journalistic method. As it should be, the reporter doesn’t claim to be able to read anyone’s mind, but only reports what someone said. For example:
.
“Steenkamp said Monsanto still believes its technology will bring a benefit to farmers. The company said in the statement that the introduction in Burkina Faso of its Bollgard II cotton in 2009 in local varieties increased yields and export volumes while reducing pesticide use.”
.
This bucks the New York Times standard which is followed by most of the mainstream media, which decrees that where an official or flack from an establishment entity like the US government or a big corporation says something, the scribbler should stenograph it. Thus the NYT would’ve written something like this:
.
“Monsanto still believes its technology will bring a benefit to farmer. The company’s Bollgard II cotton was introduced in Burkina Faso in 2009 in local varieties in order to increase yields and export volumes while reducing pesticide use.”
.
Of course the responsibility of a true journalist goes further than just proper attribution and not claiming to have a crystal ball. A real reporter would also fact-check Monsanto’s claims about yield and pesticide use and debunk those as the proven lies they are.
.
2. The emphasis on commercial glyphosate formulations and the illegitimacy of the concept of “inert ingredients” is good for describing the fraudulence of corporate safety trials and regulatory assessments. But outside this context, it’s a distraction from the clear direct fact that glyphosate itself causes cancer and must be banned completely. So a general piece condemning the poison shouldn’t go off on tangents from the main line of attack. It must be glyphosate first, glyphosate last, glyphosate in the middle. For general purposes “Roundup” and “glyphosate” should be considered synonyms.
.
This isn’t an academic point. As we speak the pro-glyphosate forces in the EU are expressing willingness to sacrifice POEA as long as they can separate the concept of it from the concept of glyphosate and make it the scapegoat, all toward the goal of rehabilitating glyphosate’s reputation and getting it re-licensed. That’s what happens when points which are good within a specific context are allowed to sprawl out indiscriminately into general communication, because of lack of conceptual and messaging discipline.
.
3. We’ve long known that one of the main reasons most pro-GMO activists support the technology is because GMOs increase pesticide use. These activists want to maximize pesticide use but are often too cowardly openly to admit this. In particular, they’ve usually denied being Monsanto flunkeys who are really trying to boost Roundup sales. This lie has become completely transparent since the 2015 WHO cancer declaration forced the pro-GMO activists into overt Roundup shilling.
.
Well, it was just a matter of time before they tried to turn this around. Here’s the first example I’ve seen of an implied claim that people are campaigning against glyphosate as some kind of stealth attack on GMOs.
.
“Verger said: Every year we evaluate 10-30 compounds, and I can tell you that a lot of them are more dangerous and potent than glyphosate. We are a bit uncomfortable that there is so much interest in this assessment, [just] because this particular pesticide is used for GM crops.”
.
This lie is as pathetic as all the rest. The people are rising against glyphosate because it causes cancer and has no constructive use. Contrary to the hack’s lie, to whatever extent there’s cause and effect in our oppositions it’s the other way around: One of the main reasons we oppose GMOs is precisely because GMOs are nothing but poison plants designed and intended to maximize the use of poisons like glyphosate.
.
So it looks like we may be seeing this lie more often, but destroying it is easy.

GMO/Poisoner Summary, May 6th, 2016

>

*Dole knew for over a year that its plant had a listeria outbreak and was lethally contaminating its food products. It kept this secret and would have continued to do so if inspectors hadn’t uncovered the poisoning. This is standard corporate practice, and any corporation can always be counted upon to tell any such lie necessary. The entire scientific, regulatory, and media paradigm of modern civilization, completely dependent as it is upon the religious faith that corporations can be trusted to tell the truth about themselves, is a pure lie, and all that follows from this paradigm is nothing but lies.
.
The example also proves yet again that the centralized structures of corporate agriculture and food are designed to maximize the incidence and severity of food disease outbreaks. This is in addition to the systematic Poisoner campaign and the systematic campaign to incubate pandemics in shantytowns (generated by corporate agriculture’s mass expulsion of the people from their lands) and CAFOs.
.
*Get your Roundup label campaign packs from Global Justice Now. They had their chance to be honest. Now we the people must force them to come clean completely.
.
Here’s a real label, stamped directly on the poison, directly by the people.
.
*Members of the European Parliament are condemning the European Commission’s “compromise” proposal to re-licence glyphosate for ten years instead of fifteen. No compromise offered on the unlimited poisoning of agricultural zones, public parks, playgrounds, backyards, and so on. By now a ban on park and residential use is the bare minimum among decent human beings, and this is only the first step to be followed shortly by a complete ban on agricultural use.
.
*Our upstanding, respectable people aren’t phased by that kind of trivia, but may become upset to learn their fine wines are loaded with the cancer juice. That’s why an ABC news report on California wines loaded with glyphosate residue is being censored by the network. The ABC news page is now “Page Not Found”.
.
*Aspiring eugenicists have been trying to synthesize the smallest possible genome, allegedly stripped down to minimum essentials. They sought to strip away all seemingly extraneous sequences leaving only those necessary to the basic self-sustaining functions of the cell. But against all expectations they ended up with a genome one third of whose genes are evidently necessary but whose function can’t be discerned. They’d expected, according to the theory they started out with, a maximum of 5-10% of the genes being of this character. Once again alleged GE “science” is left debunked and confused. My favorite part – the scientific theory didn’t work, “So the team took a different and more labor-intensive tack, replacing the design approach with trial and error.” Just like with the entire genetic engineering endeavor.
.
The long run goal is to be able to engineer purely functional (in an economic sense) animals and humans. So they’re experimenting with genetic minimalism – how much “extraneous” stuff can they dispense with and still have a functional organism. Like figuring out the absolute minimum needed to feed slaves to keep them “efficiently” working.
.
*Here’s the latest in the long line of studies debunking the Bt “precision” lie, again proving the universal truth of all pesticides from hot pepper to the most virulent synthetic: All indiscriminately harm beneficial insects. This is the intended goal of insecticides, to kill insects as such. The only difference is the degree of potency. Concentrated Bt poison in GMO crops cells is one of the more indiscriminately toxic. We can expect RNAi insecticidal crops to be at lease as imprecise and indiscriminate.
.
The study also adds to the already conclusive evidence on how multiple poisons in combination add up to greater lethality than the sum of the individual poisons. But, much like with formulations compared with “pure” primary poisons, synergy effects should be cited only in special circumstances. For everyday combat, it’s best and strongest to emphasize the fact that each of the poisons, including and especially the so-called “active”, primary poison, is lethally toxic to all animals including humans and must be banned. This fact, always coupled with its companion fact that the whole paradigm of pesticide-based agriculture doesn’t work, will be most lethal to the enemy’s endeavor.
.
*Here’s the latest result of the GMO cartel’s campaign to eradicate all non-GM seeds: Punjab wants to promote indigenous desi open-pollinated cotton, but the seeds aren’t available.
.
Organizations like Navdanya and seed conservationists like Debal Deb have preserved and continue to grow desi varieties, though they don’t have the stock to immediately supply a large demand. But if they were given a big state order, they could quickly do a seed increase.
.
*We just saw an example of the economic suppression of non-GM seeds and genetics. Meanwhile the campaign of biological suppression through GM contamination of true crops continues. Canadian organic alfalfa farmers continue to resist the commercial deployment of Roundup Ready alfalfa, with the fight focusing especially on Prince Edward Island. Alfalfa is an insect-pollinated perennial and is therefore prone to rapid cross-pollination and subsequent contamination. This contamination is a primary intended goal of governments and Monsanto in deploying this false poison-based crop. A proximate goal is to render the existing certification structure for organic meat and dairy impossible by wiping out non-GM hay as a feed. From there the only possibilities are to let GMOs into the organic certification, or else let the organic sector die out completely. Monsanto will be happy either way.
.
The Canadian government engages in the standard Orwellian lies, claiming to champion “choice” when the conscious goal is to eradicate all choice. We have decades of data on how seed sector concentration and genetic pollution destroy seed choice. Everyone knows this and it’s not possible to be mistaken about it. Any pro-GMO activist who touts “choice” is a willful liar.
.
*Here’s a good two-fer, phony climate change concern and skillful use of the old scapegoat-the-farmer. Of course in reality industrial agriculture as such is by far the worst driver of climate change and cannot be reformed, can only be abolished.
.
*Is the Obama administration being so aggressive and obnoxious in its pro-corporate thuggery that it’s going to force Europe, against the desire of the EU government and most of the member state governments, to reject the TTIP globalization pact? There’s increasing reason to think the combination of public protest and tyrannical US/corporate behavior may deep-six the vile thing.
.
Here we are over two years past the time the US and EU were expecting to have this thing all wrapped up and enacted (even longer for the CETA, the Canada-Europe Trade Agreement), and it’s still in the arduous negotiation stage precisely because the corporations and the US government are so all-at-once totalitarian about it. That’s even though the “harmonization” (Gleichschaltung) provisions are designed to accomplish all the corporations could ever want, just more gradually.
.
I even have some optimism that the whole thing will collapse and not be enacted, precisely because the US is being so openly belligerent and totalitarian about it, to the point even of making the EU governments leery. At any rate US brazenness has rendered the European political environment more and more hostile toward these surrender pacts.
.
Rejecting the TTIP will be a great boon for Europe. Unfortunately at best this will only partially help the American people if the US corporate government goes ahead with the TPP.
.
The enemy’s also going for all-or-nothing as far as the legitimacy of “science”. These globalization pacts include provisions officially enshrining as law the notion that science is to be defined according to corporate imperatives. We the people either will have to accept the steel bars of the law, “science is what the corporations say it is”, or else completely reject the legitimacy of establishment “science” across the board.
