We Must Love One Another or Die

>

 
 
Motto from W H Auden, “September 1, 1939”
 
Love is not possible through a barrier emblazoned with the words, “I fear your existence”, emitted across a physical space symbolic of this existential fear.
 
We now are at the time of the most extreme Othering, the most extreme xenophobia of all against all, the most extreme bigotry, toward the most extreme war of all against all.
 
Why has almost everyone joined this cult? What is so attractive about it? Why, on the spur of the moment, for no good reason, spurred only by the propaganda of the TV news which so many of you claimed previously not to believe, have you so unquestioningly and abjectly submitted?
 
Why are you casting away all the principles you claimed to hold, why are you casting away all that humanity has known of social and cultural existence?
 
Why do you want so perversely and vainly and self-destructively to go directly against millions of years of human evolution and billions of years of microbial evolution?
 
Why do you want this permanent fascist deformation, no matter how directly destructive of human physical and mental health, community life, cultural life, the social and econo,mic position of yourself and everyone you claim to care about?
 
You say you don’t mean it to be permanent? And just when will you take off your face diaper and return to your previous life? When the TV says you’re allowed? According to the impresarios of the global assault that day will never come.
 
And even if it did and you obeyed, that still would mean your state of the most irresponsible, abdicated, anti-political, anti-social, cowardly, abject, submissive obedience to the government and media is now permanent.
 
And you didn’t even need to be directly terrorized by any police state in order to instill and enforce this obedience, the way that was necessary for Stalin’s regime. All you needed was a shoddy scare campaign over a mild epidemic. Which proves that covid was nothing but a catalyst which mobilized underlying mass-existential fear-itself over the near universal personal economic precarity and the universal ecological precarity of the economic civilization itself. Covid mobilized these immense vague fears toward this explosive reaction of desperate superstition and propitiatory rites which, it is hoped, if enough people participate, can somehow cause the real existential specter to pass over the house. The face diapers and hex distancing are the equivalent of lamb’s blood smeared over the door – pointless from any rational point of view, all-important from the point of view of the cult.
 
None of this can work. The only thing which can avert the worst of general economic liquidation and ecologically drive collapse is truly to repent of the evil ways of the civilization and completely change the way we live, away from worthless material junk, away from “production” and “growth”, away from “money” and “jobs”, away from everything which is destroying the Earth and murdering the human soul, toward a renewed mutual human community, friendship, caring, and toward the return to the Earth which Gaia shall insist upon anyway, whether we go willingly or she has to drag our battered frame while we scream.
 
Meanwhile the conceit that any of the policies of our stupid, incompetent, corrupt, wicked institutions can do anything to control a virus which has been at large in the global environment for at least a year and perhaps much longer is nothing but Dominionist-technocratic delusion. Gaia will out. The virus will complete its natural cycle regardless of anything the institutions and media do and say. The lockdowns have accomplished nothing but to drag out the inevitable while adding a long list of ancillary, purely gratuitous evils.
 
If we are to do any of what we need in time, if we are to do any of what anyone still human would want, the first thing is to stop digging this latest, deepest, most extremely fastest-dug pit of mutual anti-human fear and loathing. We must all drop the masks, approach one another and say “I’m sorry, I went crazy for a moment there”, and embrace one another.
 
We must love one another or die.

Sacrificing Peace

>

To sacrifice everything, for nothing

 
 
“Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?”
 
– Attributed to various officers in many wars
 
As a rule institutional leaders and “respectable”, reputable citizens agree that there come times where it’s necessary for a society to go to war. Soldiers are expected to sacrifice every freedom and comfort, even the most basic necessities and be willing to run tremendous risks, where necessary sacrificing their lives. Society as a whole is expected to send off its young people to this fate, while civilians where necessary sacrifice their own freedoms, comforts, necessities.
 
And why are people supposed to make these sacrifices? Down through history many societies have faced direct existential threats. But this has never been the case for the United States, protected by such a moat that a physical invasion is close to inconceivable. No, America’s war motives always have been ideological and aggressively economic.
 
For purposes of this essay let’s leave aside US imperialism as America’s core war motive throughout its history and focus on its ideological proclamations. Why has America sent its soldiers to kill and die?
 
The quote that best sums up many others throughout US history is Franklin Roosevelt’s Annual Message to Congress in January 1941. While this was months before the US formally entered the war, Roosevelt and those who thought like him already regarded the US as under clear threat and already de facto at war, with the de jure state imminent.
 
“No realistic American can expect from a dictator’s peace international generosity, or return of true independence, or world disarmament, of freedom of expression, or freedom of religion – or even good business.
 
“Such a peace would bring no security for us or for our neighbors. “Those, who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”…
 
“There is nothing mysterious about the foundations of a healthy and strong democracy. The basic things expected by our people of their political and economic systems are simple. They are: Equality of opportunity for youth and for others, jobs for those who can work, security for those who need it, the ending of special privilege for the few, the preservation of civil liberties for all…
 
“These are the simple, basic things that must never be lost sight of in the turmoil and unbelievable complexity of our modern world. The inner and abiding strength of our economic and political systems is dependent upon the degree to which they fulfill these expectations…
 
“In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.
* The first is freedom of speech and expression – everywhere in the world.
* The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way – everywhere in the world.
* The third is freedom from want – which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants – everywhere in the world.
* The fourth is freedom from fear – which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor – anywhere in the world.”
 
In justifying his escalation of the Vietnam War Lyndon Johnson explicitly reaffirmed these principles, as has every subsequent warmonger:
 
“In the years since then, those four freedoms – freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear – have stood as a summary of our aspirations for the American Republic and for the world.”
 
Today almost everyone agrees this is good and right for dying in war, but not for the sake of living as a human being.
 
Of course all these values are precisely what the US system, domestically and internationally, holds in contempt and dishonors far more often than honors. But in principle the average citizen is supposed to believe that these really are the values of the system, and to believe that these values are in fact worth going to war, in order to preserve the reality of these things.
 
What are the things you’re willing to send others kill and die for? And you would send them, not for the empty words but for the reality of living these things?
 
Today we see everywhere in America how most are willing to send others to kill and die, but most definitely are not willing to live the principles of the rhetoric. The terror-lockdown offensive using Covid as a pretext is met with rapturous enthusiasm by all the same people who claimed to be willing to kill and die, or at least force others to kill and die, for freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of mobility and economic action, freedom from fear (including the free-floating fear-itself Roosevelt invoked earlier in a different but related context), community, family values, living in peace.
 
They’re not willing to run even the most minuscule alleged risk to live these things in reality, the moment they were terrorized with the notion that freedom, community, family, living in peace in themselves contained a kernel of physical risk. The second the fraudulent system falsely shrilled “Pandemic! Stampede!”, every patriot and tough guy suddenly was willing to surrender unconditionally, as if to a foreign invader.
 
The same people who would send their own children into combat on the other side of the world in the name of these human relations and values, or who themselves would volunteer, are willing to throw these away on the spur of the moment, evidently permanently, for no reason at all other than because the TV says people are seeing ghosts. (Most consumers of the propaganda admit they themselves have not seen any ghosts, but they insist the ghosts must be everywhere nevertheless.) The same who romanticize charging into fire are in such terror of the air they clamp face diapers onto themselves and live in abject terror of the physical proximity of what used to be their fellow human beings, their fellow citizens, the same people on whose behalf they’re supposed to be willing to lay down their lives in war.
 
Some might laud this extreme reaction as being willing to take the extreme sacrifice of the war upon oneself. Of course the elites driving it all don’t actually undertake any sacrifice whatsoever. They may parade their uniform masks in public but don’t wear them anywhere they don’t think there’s a camera on them. The criminals against humanity who drive the terror-lockdown assault, the likes of Neal Ferguson, Dominic Cummings, Nancy Pelosi and many others flout what they know are pointless fraudulent lockdown prescriptions whose only goal is social control and which have zero to do with public health. This proves, among other things, that they regard as a scam the very lockdown measures they prescribe or order for others.
 
These government officials, media scribblers, NGO cadres, every last one of them would agree with the proposition: “Sometimes it’s necessary to send millions to war and have many thousands die for the sake of…[fill in the blank]”. For all of them the [blank] would include things like freedom, the pursuit of happiness, our human way of life. In theory many would say the same about political protest, the value of being willing to risk oppression, violence and death for the sake of trying to live a human life without oppression.
 
Yet today and for months now almost all those same persons are saying that we MUST NOT be willing to risk anything or (if it really were necessary) sacrifice anything in order to live the very things for which we’re supposed to be willing to go to war or to run the risks of protest against a violent state.
 
That’s yet another proof that the whole thing is a Big Lie.
 
It’s also proof how much all government officials, everyone in the media, all system NGOs etc. and all other lockdown supporters love war and hate the human way of life. Their credo is, Any and all risk and sacrifice (of others) for war, no risk allowed at all for the sake of living; All sacrifice for war, none for peace, none for community, none for happiness, none for well-being.
 
In turn this is really part of a their lying malign propaganda offensive whose real goal is war on the people themselves on behalf of economic plunderers, social control and the police state, and completing modern civilization’s drive to totally atomize and dissolve all human togetherness, all human solidarity, all human community.
 
Thus while war may still be invoked as the need to sacrifice on behalf of the community, the real war is waged to destroy the community, and all the sacrifices called for really are calls upon the human spirit to destroy itself voluntarily. Those who think they need to defend themselves against the ghost of a pandemic really are committing suicide by failing to defend themselves against the very real system assault on the basis of their very lives.
 
The logical conclusion of the mindset: We should kill ourselves to avoid being killed by this alleged pandemic. As it is they want us all to cease and desist from living, and they want to prevent any chance for today’s children ever to live – the entire generation is to serve at least psychologically as a mass human sacrifice – all in the name of avoiding physical risk.
 
 
Nothing is worse than totalitarianism. I’d run any physical risk rather than run any significant risk of this level of tyranny. As would any intact human being. This is the same principle often invoked under more dubious circumstances to justify running off to fight in a foreign war, or sending others to do so. Millions have fought and died for this principle. But here we invoke it on more sure grounds.
 
From the start I’ve been clear I would let Covid do its worst with zero prophylactic measures before I’d be willing to run any totalitarian risk. This is the only meaningful precautionary principle which applies to any political case under the conditions of modern mass society. Those who sincerely regard themselves as having responsibilities as citizens of a polity always are ready to do their own research, reject the lies of the system and support those who speak out against the lies.
 
Contrary to the rhetoric of the corporate media and its prefabricated Covid death cult, the truly selfish are the idiots that let themselves be panicked and since then have submitted abjectly and brainlessly to every decree of the same governments and media they previously claimed to distrust. They are failures as citizens and as human beings.
 
Hitherto this mass abdication of responsibility has been most pronounced during times of war fever. It’s no surprise that the Covid propaganda has been heavily leavened with militarist rhetoric, just as pesticide propaganda has been since the 1920s, and just as even the most formal scientific literature often is.
 
 
This episode has given the most stark demonstration of how every politician, every opinion leader, every patriot, every warmonger, the voters for these, all are liars since none are willing to endure the slightest perception of danger in order to live these values in whose name they’re willing to have others kill and die for elsewhere. It turns out that, just as much as their worthless masks, their invocation of the name of these values never was more than empty, virtue-signaling posturing.
 
To repeat what’s been obvious from early days, there is no danger from any virus anyway, but we see how almost everyone is willing to cast away the substance of every value, to spit on and trample it all at the slightest wisp of a ghost in the closet.
 
Just like the citizen soldiers America claims to honor in its historical observances and daily propaganda, we must be willing to risk and sacrifice in order to combat those who would enslave us. Most of all we must be willing to risk and sacrifice for the sake of keeping our humanity. That means getting back to living as human beings, even if most of us still are afraid solely on account of a terrorist propaganda campaign based on nothing but lies.
 
Don’t let the terrorists win? Most of all, don’t let these domestic terrorists win.

Needful Covid Lessons

>

 
 
This goes with Artificial Origin and Covid in Globalist Context as part of a series explaining the philosophical and moral basis for rejecting the legitimacy of the governments of an evil, self-destructive civilization when it claims authority as a moral legislator for a so-called “pandemic” it deliberately artificially inflicted upon itself, in direct disregard of all our warnings for all these years.
 
All I’ve said about Covid boils down to this – however mild or severe, it is a 100% purely self-inflicted event on the part of the ecodical economic civilization. The terror-lockdown response has had zero public health motivation – we already know these governments care nothing for public health. All their ecocidal, poisonist policies, the way they arrange their health care systems, the deliberate systematic physical and mental health precarity they generate – all this proves the fact that whatever the motivations of governments and media in propagating the pandemic scare, whatever the motivations of governments and media in imposing lockdown measures, whatever the motivations of government and media in imposing social control rituals like the anti-science superstitions of masking and anti-social distancing, these motivations are purely malign.
 
The effects of the terror-lockdown campaign, including any economic disruption up to and including collapse, is a blow purely self-inflicted by a civilization at war with its own biological basis. This includes waging war on its own people. The pest arose either from a US bioweapon experiment or attack, or from the elements of globalization: Deforestation, global heating and climate chaos, factory agriculture, industrial mining, cramming masses into slums and shantytowns, the demolition of all public health systems and access to decent health care except for the rich. The system is deploying every kind of misdirection and scapegoating to cover up its complete culpability while seeking malign goals of covering up the ongoing collapse of every element of the economy except for Fed-inflated stock prices and other fake numbers; launch a new escalation of corporate bailouts and Wall Street plunder; intensify social control; escalate the police state; beat the anti-China war drums; carry out a mass euthanasia campaign among the sick and elderly; intensify the crisis of human alienation. The system wants to push these all as much as is politically or physically possible.
 
Unequivocally the virus has its source in the wickedness of the civilization, in globalization, imperialism, militarism, Mammon; and the response to it has been the most extreme manifestation of this wickedness.
 
This is globalization’s plague, globalization’s child, globalization’s affinity, globalization’s assault. And with the terror-lockdown campaign globalization wants to protect and maximize it all. Covid-19 coupled with the totalitarian assault and global religion stemming from it together comprise this civilization’s most typical and quintessential product, its crowning achievement.
 
We who oppose this, we who have opposed it all for so long (I’ve been doing this blog for eleven and a half years now, and studying for the fight for years before that, we who already have suffered so much and now again are made blameless victims of the crimes and insanities of this global Babylon, we have no truck with all this, we owe its perpetrators nothing, we are free as a bird.
 
Meanwhile all their pretensions are so much vanity. Earth guarantees with certitude that whatever this virus is going to do, it’s going to do. SARS-COV-2 shall complete its cycle regardless, and there’s nothing their stupid worthless ecocidal civilization can do about it. Since they generated this epidemic, however mild or severe it belongs to them, and how do they think you can recall your bullet with the same gun that fired it?
 
Perhaps the most obnoxious element of the entire top-down terror-lockdown assault and bottom-up (albeit heavily astroturfed) mass insanity is the arrogance of it all, the presumption, the sinful pride.
 
(This has an analogue in the presumption of the climate-industrial movement that “green” ecocide somehow isn’t ecocide and can solve the civilization-driven climate crisis and general ecological collapse.)
 
When we contemplate the many berserker vandalisms and demolitions perpetrated by these governments and corporate demons, indoctrinated by these schools, propagandized by these media, supported by these decadent masses, the full lunacy and moral disreputation of any institution or average necropolitan denizen to say a word about their crowning Corona becomes fully evident.
 
A civilization that ruthlessly and relentlessly digs up and unleashes hundreds of millions of years of sunk carbon in order to scorch the Earth can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
 
A civilization that ruthlessly massacres trillions of trees toward the goal of turning forests to deserts can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
 
A civilization that ruthlessly drives the mass extinctions of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, fish, insects, can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
 
A civilization that ruthlessly slathers the earth, water, air with every kind of industrial poison and which poisons its own food and water and the general environment with pesticides and GMOs, these poisons being the real purpose of its agriculture, can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
 
A civilization whose own mainstream “environmental” groups and climate-industrial movement can envision no way to respond to these calamities than to double down on every technocratic evil up to and including advocacy for geoengineering can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
 
The basic guiding principles for understanding the entire Covid event are:
 
1. The origin of the epidemic lies in globalization, imperialism, militarism. The economic civilization’s weaponized use of the idea of a lethal pandemic (the idea, since no such thing exists yet in reality) is in the service of these evils.
 
2. Only the most extreme Dominion theology and technocratic ideology believe that once this virus is at large in the environment, as it has been at least since last autumn, that artificial government-applied measures can prevent it from completing its natural cycle toward its end in herd immunity. But then the real purposes of lockdown and social control measures aren’t really to prevent this end, but to use the opportunity toward the most malign economic, political, biological goals. This is history’s most extreme exercise in disaster capitalism.
 
As for anyone who really would want to try to contain a globally free-ranging epidemic, we know from every other ecological context that the only thing which works is natural balance through maximal biodiversity, while forcible violent attempts at segregation and sterilization, such as are characteristic of industrial agriculture and of these lockdown measures, always fail.
 
3. Everything that’s been done has been the radical opposite of what should have been done from the perspective of any sane, rational, well-meaning public health goal. Institutions where the vulnerable people (elderly and already ill) are concentrated should have been protected while everyone else went about normal life. Instead normal life was devastated, subject to the most extreme and intrusive terrorist propaganda and police state measures, subject to the psychological pandemic of constant extreme uncertainty, while the one thing which was not done was to protect the institutionalized vulnerable. This was no accident either. Although we’ll likely never know how many bona fide Covid deaths there were, only that the real number is vastly less than the manipulated official number, we do know that the vast majority of these deaths were government-perpetrated murders, the result of a systematic euthanasia campaign.
 
These are principles of Gaian social practice and politics for a pandemic era. Although Covid-19 is not a big one, it is a shot across the bow. Worse will come so long as the economic civilization continues on its self-driven quest to be the destroyer of the Earth. The time to learn that everything governments have done regarding Covid are wrong and upside down is now.

Human and Anti-Human Labors

>

 
 
We need nothing of “labor” as the economic civilization, with its deranged production imperative, conceives it.
 
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 the Earth and our human cooperation as part of the Earth, 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 we have the added burden of rejecting and resisting the false “work” of Mammon, commodity production, globalized false “trade”, 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 toil, turning us into slaves either directly as chattel or by monopolizing access to work and controlling the modes of work so that only as zombies 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 time 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. Destroy the Earth, destroy our bodies, destroy our souls.
 
Jesus echoes this as he speaks to the multitudes in the Sermon on the Mount:
 
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.
 
Therefore I say to 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?
 
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
 
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit to his stature?
 
And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither spin nor toil,
 
And yet I say to you that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
 
If God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not clothe you, O you of little faith?
 
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, How shall we be clothed?
 
For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
 
But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.
 
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.
 
– Matthew 6:24-34
 
The meaning and truth of this is unchanged whether we say God or 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 confronting 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:
 
Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
 
Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
 
– Matthew 10:9-10
 
[He] commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
 
But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
 
– Mark 6:8-9
 
These injunctions are addressed to all of us as well. We all need take nothing. If we lived in truth, 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 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 secular “leftist” politics completely embraced the demons of production and commodity, thus nullifying itself as a possible way forward for humanity. 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, free of Mammon, free of 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 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, production for its own destructive and tyrannical sake. Secularists call this “capitalism”, though it is verily a religion. The world is as enchanted and suffused with spirit as ever. It is 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.

Do No Harm

>

 
 
One of the benefits of running before dawn as I’ve been doing for over twenty years is that the air is much cleaner than during the vehicle traffic of the day. The difference is such that the infrequent times a gluttonous vehicle passes, like a garbage truck did this morning, the exhaust fumes are very tangible. I always cover my nose and mouth with my hand for the next twenty yards or so. Today I said, “Too bad I can’t conjure a spontaneous mask which will last for ten seconds.”
 
Then I thought of the innumerable daytime pedestrians and runners I’ve seen on busy streets all these years, and never a single one of them wearing a mask against the very real health dangers of the soot and other particulate matter poisoning the immediate air. Yet today there’s verily a mass hysteria for masks against the medieval miasma which the mass believes has resurged in our modern “scientific” time.
 
That’s one of the many proofs that the current mania for masking is based in irrationalism and hysteria.
 
***
 
My reading and thinking of over 25 years now always has confirmed the same conclusion: Nothing could be worse than living under totalitarianism. To be a Jew or other targeted group under Nazi control, to be part of any group suspect under Stalinism, to be forced to exist in such a place at all, is the worst fate imaginable. No other consideration is worth running any significant risk of escalating the police state. That’s why from the start I always said it would be better to do nothing and let the virus do what it will than to deploy coercive government power, especially since the bug was on the loose already before anyone thought about trying to contain it and so its natural cycling is inevitable and unstoppable. The only thing lockdowns have accomplished is to drag out the inevitable and add a long list of artificial ancillary harms.
 
In reality, it was never necessary to do nothing. What could have been done was to protect the vulnerable. Yet almost everywhere this is the one and only thing which was NOT done. That proves the idiocy at best, and more likely the deliberate malevolence of the terror-lockdown campaign.
 
That’s why from day one I put the government-media terror-lockdown campaign in this holistic perspective and never was willing to view it in technocratic isolation the way system propagandists demand we view it. That was before I learned what specific manipulations they were performing and lies they were telling, especially about Covid death rates, though of course I suspected massive lies from the start and wasn’t surprised when I learned precisely what the lies were.
 
I always carry that in mind when I read things like “Ahimsa, Masks and Social Distancing” by Mark Halpern (found on facebook, no link) which strike me as exactly upside-down and expressing the exact wrong priorities. It’s antithetical to anything I consider human:
 
“Ahimsa is the practice of “causing no harm”. This is a core tenant of both Yoga and Ayurveda. In Yoga, it is core tenant of karma. The selfish act of causing harm will bring suffering to the one who causes harm. In Ayurveda, the practice of ahimsa is considered essential to the maintenance of ojas- that which protects the immune system* and stabilizes the mind.
 
Wearing a mask and social distancing are acts of ahimsa in an environment of a pandemic. No more would I unnecessarily harm a spider than I would not wear a mask in public. As practitioners of Yoga and Ayurveda, there is really no other healthy or proper choice.
 
Those who argue that freedoms are being taken away are simply living from the ego. This is the origin of selfishness. Action that stem from the ego generate karma. So too, according to the Bhagavad Gita does non-action. Non action for selfish reasons generates karma!
 
To not wear a mask and socially distance is to put everyone else in harm’s way. You may say that “they can wear a mask or they can stay away”. But, this comes from a selfish place. And, risk to everyone is lower when both people wear a mask and both are mindful of socially distancing. It’s time for the yoga and Ayurveda communities of teachers and practitioners to stand up and teach it is important to take the action that causes the least harm, or no harm.”
 
(*Spoken by a devotee of the program which consistently has sought to drive people out of the natural outdoors where our immune systems are enhanced and into the indoors where immune systems are eroded. In general, by deliberately trumping up maximum stress, anxiety and fear-itself the government-media Covid campaign has sought systematically to weaken our immune systems. This fits perfectly with the general necropolitan state of permanent stress and nutritionally poor food.)
 
My rebuttal: This goes against the scientific evidence for the negligible prospects of outdoor transmission, while the evidence for how helpful masks and spacing can be when indoors is highly conflicted. In any event it seems that close contact over many minutes is necessary for contagion to be likely. As critics including many public health officials and scientists long have been saying, masking and anti-social spacing comprise more of a psychological epidemic, a superstitious rite rather than a rational protection measure.
 
Meanwhile, to comply unquestioningly is to cause great harm by abetting the totalitarian goals of this campaign. To refuse abject compliance is an act of ahisma in the environment of an escalating police state. Those who argue that fear-itself makes obedience necessary are simply living from the ego. This is the origin of selfishness.
 
To wear a mask and anti-socially distance in sheep-like compliance to what the government and corporations demand is to put everyone else in harm’s way. You may say that “they can wear a mask or they can stay away”. But, this comes from a selfish place, since a totalitarian police state will engulf us all.
 
“When tyranny is abroad, submission is a crime.” — Andrew Eliot, 1765
 
I’m no longer willing to tolerate flat-earth propaganda which seeks to reduce this world-historical crisis in all its complexity to the single technical matter of alleged protection against a virus and refuses even to acknowledge the many other critical matters at stake, such as police state escalation, the death toll caused by the lockdowns themselves (which I suspect will end up being higher than that from Covid-19), and how the whole terror-lockdown campaign is escalating the pandemic of human alienation, isolation, loneliness and despair already endemic to this civilization. Those actually are among the real goals of the campaign, while it’s self-evident that public health was never a goal, only a pretext, much like how every US war of aggression is waged in the fraudulent name of “democracy”, “freedom”, “humanitarianism.” It’s the same evil system, the same evil lies, the same evil goals.

Let There Be Light

<

 
 
“The sun declares the glory of God; and the stars show his handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge.
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun.
His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat of the sun.”
 
– Psalm 19
 
There’s two principles I hold dear which are confirmed by my personal experience and that of many people I’ve known. Both are confirmed by science. I’ve also known and seen online and in the media large numbers of people including credentialed experts who speak to the good of these. They are:
 
1. Outdoor recreation is critically important for physical and psychological health, including strengthening our immune systems which are so important now. By contrast, indoor incarceration is physically and psychologically detrimental and depresses immune function. In particular, being amid nature, out in the woods, boosts immunity along with myriad other health benefits.
 
Meanwhile the science is clear that the outdoor transmission of Corona or any other virus is negligible or nonexistent.
 
2. Everything I know, from my ten years experience of growing crops and studying agroecology, from years of ecological study, from a lifetime of experiencing nature; everything I know tells me that any potential pathogen is best balanced through biodiversity, while forcible violent attempts at segregation and sterilization are doomed to fail.
 
The entire trend of recent biological and epidemiological science finds that well-balanced biodiversity, from the human microbiome to the ecology at large, is the only way potential pathogens are kept in check, while rigid attempts at sterilization never work and only generate many ancillary harms.
 
Today the vast majority of those who have long gone around proclaiming these principles have utterly betrayed them and flipped 180 degrees. Now they say and do the exact opposite of what they always claimed was their core belief. Now those who touted the health benefits of nature suddenly shriek “It’s safest indoors!” “The outdoors isn’t safe!!” “The air is poisoned, don’t breathe it!!!” This is when the air is the cleanest and most wholesome it’s been in our lives. We see how adversely their kind reacts to purification. Wholesome air makes them retch.
 
And suddenly our former believers in organic farming and biodiversity insist, “The right way to deal with pests is through rigid, violent interventions. We need iron-clad inflexible segregation and sterilization measures.”
 
We see what frauds they always were. They never really believed in their self-alleged principles, which means they never believed in themselves. Therefore it’s no wonder that the moment the chips are down they’ve all regressed to an infantile state where they beg Big Brother to tell them what to do and then obey every stricture, no matter how self-evidently idiotic and anti-scientific, no matter how obviously self-destructive, in the most literal, abject, servile way.
 
The two examples I give here are just the tip of the iceberg. I selected them because they go to the core of personal and public health, physical and psychological, as well as their pivotal ecological importance. Yet they’re just two among the hundreds of principles which many claimed to cherish but which it turns out almost no one ever really believed. These include the many moral, spiritual, social, political principles I hold dear which I thought I shared with some others, albeit all too few. But today I see that even among these few, almost all were really frauds and liars ready to throw everything away the moment one of the system’s terror campaigns finally got to them. Or else they had an inner fascist all along just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come out.
 
 
One of these principles, which brings together all the others, is that we see the real worth of individuals and their principles when things get toughest. By this measure, we see how utterly worthless almost everyone who ever claimed to believe in anything really is.
 
 
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my strength, my redeemer…
Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun.
His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat of the sun.”
 
The terrorists of government and media are trying to hide the Earth itself from the sun, and all too many among the mass still yearn to be hidden. But they will fail. All will be exposed. As anyone who is even minimally scientifically literate knows, the sun kills viruses.
 
And in the end, however black, benighted and evil things look now, the sun will expose all the wickedness, stupidity, and insanity of this most horrible torment humanity ever has inflicted upon itself.

Parable

A man invited a woman friend to go for a walk together in the woods. Since she knew he was a friend she agreed, and they had a nice walk.
 
Another man invited her, but she knew he was a professional killer and suspected that he wanted to get her alone out in the woods in order to kill her where no one could hear her screams. At the very least she knew he was a terrible guide who was guaranteed to get them lost. She refused to go.
 
 
She felt she should choose differently based on the different kinds of invitation. She thinks she chose rightly. But for many decades and today especially, strident masses insist that these invitations aren’t different at all, and that one always must accept every invitation. They continue to insist even as their every acceptance proves an ever greater disaster.
 
Today they (figuratively, morally) gather and rush in the greatest mass ever, at the greatest speed ever, with the greatest enthusiasm and compulsion ever, to accept the most doubtful invitation ever, toward what looks to be the worst disaster ever.

The Ultimate Divide and Conquer

>

 
 
It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each another and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pretotalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition.
 
– Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
 
 
Western civilization, led by the US government and media as always, has embarked upon a campaign of mass psychological terrorism designed to cover for the collapsing economy, set up a new pretext for Wall Street’s ongoing plunder expedition, radically escalate the police state, deeply traumatize people into submission to total social conformity, and radically aggravate the anti-social, anti-human atomization of the people.
 
The pretext for this abomination is a flu epidemic which objectively is a version of the same kind of flu caused by the same kind of Coronavirus we’ve endured so long without totalitarian rampages and mass insanity. The global evidence is converging on the facts: This flu is somewhat more contagious than the norm and is especially dangerous for those who are aged and already in poor health from pre-existing maladies. It is not especially dangerous for the rest of the population. The overall death rate looks to be somewhere in the range of 0.2-.02% of those infected, with the numbers from a myriad of places converging toward 0.1%.
 
The whole concept of “lockdowns” is exactly upside down, exactly the wrong way any sane society would respond to this circumstance. It’s the vulnerable who should be shielded while nature takes its course among the general population, who should go about life as usual. Dominionist-technocratic rigidity can’t prevent an epidemic from cycling through the population in spite of the delusions of that religion, especially since Western societies began their measures far too late anyway. So it’s best to let herd immunity develop as fast as it naturally will, at which time the virus recedes from lack of hosts (and is likely to mutate in a milder direction along the way). This is the only way to bring a safer environment for all including the most vulnerable. The fact that most societies have rejected the sane, scientific route in favor of doomed-to-fail attempts at a forcible violent segregation and sterilization is proof that governments aren’t concerned with the public health (as if we didn’t know that already from a thousand policies of poisoning the environment while gutting the health care system) but are very ardent to use this crisis they artificially generated in order radically to escalate their police state power toward totalitarian goals.
 
 
The whole concept of self-isolation and anti-social “distancing” is radically anti-human. We evolved over millions of years to be social creatures living in tight-knit groups. Although modern societies ideologically and socioeconomically work to massify and atomize people, nevertheless almost all of us still seek close human companionship in our lives.
 
(I suspect most of the internet police-state-mongers are not only fascists at heart but are confirmed misanthropic loners who couldn’t care less about human closeness.)
 
This terror campaign seeks to blast to pieces any remaining human closeness, which means any remaining humanity as such, the better to isolate individual atoms for subjection to total domination. Arendt wrote profoundly on this goal of totalitarian governments, though even she didn’t envision a state-driven cult of the literal physical repulsion of every atom from every other atom.
 
So far the people are submitting completely to a terror campaign dedicated to the total eradication of whatever community was left in the world, and especially whatever community was starting to be rebuilt.
 
Some dream of this terror campaign somehow bringing about a magical collective transformation. They don’t explain how that is supposed to happen when everyone’s so insanely terrorized they’re desperate to detach physically from their own shadows, let alone physically come together with other people. But any kind of political or social action, any kind of movement-building, requires close person-to-person contact.
 
It seems that for most erstwhile self-alleged dissidents, the fact that social media is no substitute for face-to-face organizing and group action, a fact hitherto universally acknowledged by these dissidents, is another truth suddenly jettisoned a few weeks ago and replaced by its complete antithesis.
 
Thus the terror campaign is a virus causing those it infects to abdicate all activism and all prospect for all future activism, for as long as they remain insane with the fever of this propaganda terror.
 
Far more profoundly and evoking despair, the terror campaign is a virus causing those it infects to fear and loathe all human contact, all companionship, all closeness, all things which ever made us human in the first place. Prior totalitarian regimes sought this lack of contact and trust through networks of informers. These networks are part of today’s terror campaign as well, encouraged from above and spontaneously arising from below as a result of the feeling of terror as well as the exercise of prior petty-evil intentions on the part of petty-evil individuals.
 
But today’s totalitarian potential is far worse than this. Now the regimes aspiring to total domination have terrorized and brainwashed the vast majority of people into an automatic physical distrust of all other people. One no longer fears that someone is an informer, but fears the very existence of another human being. Any kind of human relations, from personal friendship and romance to friendly social gatherings and clubs to social and cultural movements become impossible under such circumstances. This threatens to be the end of the very concept of shared humanity, to be replaced by an anthill of slave atoms with no consciousness beyond fear and the most animal concern for food and shelter, which already is allowed or denied in the same way experimenters do with lab rats.
 
And the more people fear and loathe the literal physical existence of all other people, the more the situation becomes ripe for every epidemic of murder, from the already spiking rate of domestic violence and killings to incipient lynch mobs to pogroms to Nazi-style extermination campaigns.
 
This is the system’s end goal. It’s the logical end where every trend of today leads. All of it is trumped up over an epidemic which objectively is a flu season somewhat rougher than average.
 
Why do the people want to surrender and throw away all reality and future prospect of shared humanity, happiness, freedom, well-being, over so little? Is this really a terminal totalitarian death cult, the globe as one massive Jonestown?
 
So far it seems this is what the majority wants. If they don’t really want this consummation of universal death in spirit, emotion and body, they’d better snap out of their terror-induced mental delirium fast, before it’s too late.

Earth Day

Filed under: Agroecology, Freedom, Relocalization — Tags: , , , , — Russ @ 2:33 am

Today on Earth Day, today more than ever, today as almost all among the “civilized” have gone clinically insane in response to a government- and media-driven campaign of mass psychological terrorism, today as almost all people have reacted with extreme fear and loathing toward themselves, toward their fellow human beings, toward the Earth itself, today more than ever it is needful to recall the Earth, remember what we are and where we came from, and commune again outdoors where we belong, with others the way we belong.
 
Spring is blooming, and so far the mass is rejecting it. They’re abdicating such beauty and warmth. They’re abdicating life itself.
 
The Earth is home. For all our human purposes the Earth is the universe. The Earth is our entire home, and our only home. All social ideas are grounded in this truth. All traditional religions agree upon this as well. Attempts to find the heavens in the “up there” are misreadings. The Bible is unequivocal: The New Jerusalem is supposed to descend to this physical Earth, and heaven is nowhere but upon this Earth. The same is true from every secular point of view. The Earth is where Homo sapiens evolved; humanity evolved in tandem with and as an inextricable part of the Earth; in terms of energy, physiology, and psychology it would be impossible to forsake the Earth even if humanity wanted to (but humanity does not want this; only a handful of subhuman psychopaths claim to want this) ; the Earth is our one and only home.
 
Among all religions only scientism consistently despises its home and provider the Earth. Thus, in addition to its many other evils and idiocies, scientism constitutes the most extreme and despicable ingratitude. All human beings agree this is the worst of sins and the most ominous of traits.
 
For the great majority of us home is a particular foodshed. Only a handful of people are born travelers. The vast majority of migrants are those cast adrift by corporate-driven economic coercion, or by the spiritual and cultural homelessness generated by the technocratic civilization. Part of the great and necessary ecological transformation is our return home to the Earth in the most spiritual and practical sense of learning again to be part of our foodsheds. In the end communing with the Earth through our mode of food is the most direct form of our spiritual communion with the Earth and with ourselves as a whole. Only through the Earth can we become human again.
 
It’s a measure of the decadence of the alienated civilization that Earth Day is cordoned off as a discrete holiday. As if we all don’t live at the complete sufferance of the Earth every moment of our lives. As if all the grand towers and fortresses and mausoleums of our civilization, and all our technological self-deification, don’t exist at every moment in an ICU, hooked up and dependent upon every machine while we simultaneously do all we can to pull all the plugs.
 
This self-driven campaign, too, is part of the Earth’s kinesis.
 
The Earth is a fount of great abundance.
 
Human ingenuity can render this fount even more abundant. Agroecology is the supreme example, the greatest human accomplishment. Nature’s bounty augmented by human thought and labor provide all that humanity needs and all it can sanely want.
 
The only problem, ever, is human insanity, human depravity which convinces itself it wants more than the abundant Earth ecologically offers. This has always been the source of almost all human evil and destructiveness. This insanity is pure nihilism, pure loathing of the womb and of oneself.
 
Temporarily aided by the one-off fossil fuel binge, this anti-human loathing of humanity and the Earth has been able to ramify itself in the form of the corporate-technocratic extreme energy civilization. As if their insanity and evil weren’t enough, they even whine that not everyone shows sufficient “gratitude”.
 
On the contrary, it’s these traitors against Gaia and humanity who incarnate the blackest ingratitude, the most capital treason, against all that this wonderful, beautiful, magical Earth has offered us. If only all people had been willing to live in peace, we all could know peace and happiness.
 
Ecological history will prevail, and Gaia shall impose the correction she always does in the end. Humanity can participate by building the living ecological movement dedicated to all possible action against the economic civilization, to help Gaia take it down.
 
We can best live our thanks to Earth by propagating the necessary new ideas and building this movement. This is the great focus of human life for the next two centuries.
 
On this day of thanksgiving we can thank abundant Earth and consecrate our lives to our gratitude. Earth is the basis of life itself. Only those who choose to march with death deny this.
 
There’s nothing left but to reclaim the land, build the soil, and fight for life. This is the only positive action left in the terminus of the extreme energy civilization where Politics is Dead.
 
This action is the expression of thanks, today and every day. This is the way to make every day a thanksgiving, and to prepare a world where humanity finally shall live its great gratitude in faith, every day, in all the peace, prosperity and happiness Earth’s abundance can provide. That’s why I write, in prospective thankfulness for this coming movement and this coming ecological peace.
 
Western myth begins with the image of a woman with child in the heavens, the Greek wisdom Sophia, fertility and wisdom. We find the great wisdom at the roots of creation. Her child and the Earth come into being simultaneously along with various notions of an evil dragon. This monster often has been mistaken as Sophia’s misguided creation. This depicts the primordial vision of dialectical conflict unto creation.
 
Human history is the story of the preparation of the Earth for humanity and humanity for the Earth. Before this preparation is complete the Earth must undergo its time of tribulation, first the ravages of the kamikaze campaign of extreme energy consumption, then the unfathomable volatility and turbulence of this era’s collapse and self-immolation, as all the pent up potential, all the physical and spiritual heat and poison this kamikaze civilization has emitted, reaches Kinesis.
 
The time has reached such an extremity of alienation and confusion that few on Earth can read the signs in history and nature, and so humans have conjured religions to interpret the signs. Few have the vision to recover the lost wisdom of the woman who had to flee into the wilderness. But this wilderness is nothing but the fertile Earth, tending itself and waiting for humanity to end our destructive self-exile and come home to our creative work.
 
The visions of Sophia spangle the heavens with the sun and moon and stars. We project these from Earth. As the final star descends, the morning star, its light shall gather all other cosmic lights in itself and glorify them as they continue to shine upon Earth.
 
Light and sight finally shall be liberated here, as we finally understand the mysteries. The new Gaian communion shall prove with light that the only night was in the benighted minds of men. In the new garden there no longer shall be the day vs. night of the mind. The sun and moon and stars shall shine on Earth as before. This shall be the final end of all artificial hate, greed, lusting for power and control, spiritual homelessness. All that’s ecological shall continue the cycle, now fully in harmony, transcending all distinction of natural and artificial, purging all that is anti-ecological and living as one amid the Earth’s now exalted ecology.
 
Thus the trial of perdition, the final judgement of the fossil-fueled technocratic derangement (veritably a malign ghost, a resurrected fossil of evil, a summoned demon), shall be complete, the mystery shall be solved, and from there all which is, was, and is to become, shall become, and shall be, and shall become forever more. The tree of life cycles forever through the twelve seasons, bearing its twelve fruits, and all human stewardship of Earth shall fruit in harmony. The water of life is a river which flows forever. As Greek wisdom has it no one may step twice into the same stream and yet it remains always the same stream.
 
The great vision comes of the air at break of new day, and all creation sings its new song for the new garden. There still must come tribulation from the air. The air of the day must gather and pressurize the power of the heated winds, heated by the oily bonfires of Babylon. When they shall be loosed, as the fossilized technocratic empire loses control, the Kinesis will rage while the vision of the temples and arks range the sky forecasting the flesh and blood of the new garden which shall sprout. This is the word from air to earth and sea. But there is a tiding of the thunders which shall remain untranslated until the final germination of the garden, whence this too shall resolve to a rainbow.
 
Fire is the great inspiration, fire is the great symbol of tribulation raging as wildfire across the visions, fire is the destructive force Babylon’s bonfires unleash to scourge the world as the empire loses control. Fire shall consume Babylon itself. Fire is the symbol of the ultimate sundering of those who refuse the last call to come home. But as the new garden will flower upon this Earth, so all of hell has been on this Earth and shall continue in the voids within the self-damned. Thus the ultimate fire has been in the minds of men, their raging violence, and so the future lake of fire shall be the soggy ashes in the dead souls of those who refused.
 
The creative fire is the newly transformed light of the new garden. Earth has been cradle and romping ground and home for mind, and now shall resume as home for the soul.
 
The river of life leads the song now sung by all the creatures of creation. The river shall flow forever through the new garden, and throughout the new heaven and Earth. The ocean, primal residue on Earth of the primordial waters before life itself, shall be resumed into these waters. The river still flows on Earth, still flows to the seas that girdle the Earth. All soon shall be cleansed and purified to become as holy water, suffusing Earth as rain and river and sea. These shall bless our crops forever bounteous, shall redeem and restore the ecology of Earth, Garden of Eden, Gaia.
 
But first the age must undergo a great tribulation of water. Babylon sprawls upon many waters and its crimes and poisons surge forth. It shall be destroyed by literal and spiritual tsunami. Humanity must rise up to abolish the poisons and poisoners. The great ecological preparation requires this affirmative act of agency, and Earth shall not forgive the passive.
 
And so humanity and Earth meld, as artist and material, material and artist, to establish the new heaven and new Earth on this very soil. This is the consummation of creation, its transformation. This is the revolution and restoration and renaissance. Humanity and Earth plant the tree of life in this very soil, and secure the trellis of the new garden upon this very rock, the rock of Earth beloved unto all time by all human gods, and our home of humanity unto all time.
 
The only gods are the gods of the Earth. And let it be blasphemy and the mark of evil to say this sacred rock is not home, and that “we”, meaning a handful of mean and stupid boot-lickers and slave-drivers, still seek a new home somewhere beyond this earth.
 
Humanity has a mission throughout this trial. We must work to prepare the Earth and to start planting our new garden. This is our part in the transformation of creation. We must liberate the Earth, for this is preparation and transformation. We who are called to this mission must work and endure in harmony Earth’s power and the human will transmuted to Gaia’s will which shall bring us through to victory.
 
Paradise is of this Earth. It now shall be established in the flesh and stone and spirit of the true community, the Ecotrinity of Gaia and Humanity and Earth. We will finally know how to use mind and soul in harmony to work amid Gaia’s ecology in harmony. The greatest sin was to embrace the primal sundering, the alienation, the exile. This is what Jesus called the sin against the Holy Spirit. This is the sin that cannot be forgiven because only a willfully sundered soul, in all its deluded depravity, can forbid itself to repent, forgive itself and come home. These who willingly bear the mark of the beast refuse to do so, and so cannot return, and must try to prevent all return by force. This is their main political, economic, ideological, and anti-ecological campaign today.
 
Paradise is of this earth. The Ecotrinity, and the ecological state of mind and soul which accompanies it, is the great and rising idea and spirit at this climax and tribulation of the modern fossil-fueled, corporate demon-ridden, propaganda-exhorted derangement. The false idea of “man vs. nature” is dead and dying, and the false “dominionist” religion, in both its traditional and secular forms, dies with it.
 
The tree of life shall extend its redemptive roots throughout the soil of the newly conceived Earth. Its twelve seasons of fruit shall symbolize the great prosperity of humanity and Earth in the new day. The waters of the river of life shall suffuse all the springs and rains and flows and deep blue seas of the new Earth. Our children and crops and all the plants and animals shall drink of these holy waters.
 
According to Christian scripture the new garden shall not contain a temple, for all Earth shall be a temple. And finally we shall understand what it means to say our bodies are temples. Finally we shall resume living as temples, no longer as coffins. And what we build shall be the bowers and wreaths of these temples, no longer tombs.
 
We shall resume our true heritage as our spirit spreads from the new garden’s model point of light to embrace and combine with the light of the entire Earth. That’s the great promise and goal we aspire to on Earth Day. It commands us to make every day Earth Day, and then for this great aspiration simply to be the living work of each and every day.
 
This is the living movement humanity must build. The Earth is calling us home.

No Herd Immunity to Mental Lockdown

>

 
 
Everything I know, from my ten years experience of growing crops and studying agroecology, from years of ecological study, from a lifetime of experiencing nature; everything I know tells me that any potential pathogen is best balanced through biodiversity, while forcible violent attempts at segregation and sterilization are doomed to fail.
 
So it will be with this economically-driven virus.
 
It’s clear that “lockdown” always was a completely insane notion which never could attain any goal but deliberately to collapse the economy, on a vastly more profound scale than 2008, so the 1% could plunder all real assets. Unemployment and inability to pay rent, mortgages, outstanding bills, are now becoming truly pandemic for individuals and small to medium size businesses. Homes, buildings, land, all will flood the market by prior intent of the system, and the elites will escalate their program to buy control of everything real in the economy.
 
Meanwhile the terror-deranged wingnuts who have been shrieking for ever more totalitarian assaults on all human agency are the same who assure us the disease will keep coming in waves, and so their lockdown religion aims to become a boot repeatedly stomping on a face forever. We see the world they truly want.
 
All the evidence is that this virus isn’t very dangerous to the great majority of people. Its danger is overwhelmingly to those advanced in age and already ill. For everyone else it’s basically a somewhat more contagious version of the regular flu. The threat it objectively poses is not even in the same galaxy with the totalitarian remedy which governments, media and various system lapdogs have stampeded the masses into embracing.
 
That’s why the system undercounts the infection rate while overcounting the death rate. It’s likely that majorities in most affected countries already have been exposed, with the vast majority of those infected experiencing mild or no symptoms. These are undercounted by being discouraged from going to the hospital, and non-tested through the artificial scarcity of reliable test kits.
 
At the same time any death of anyone who tests positive is logged as a Corona death, no matter what the real proximate or underlying cause, while in the case where no test is performed doctors are encouraged to log as a Corona death any death where the patient experienced any kind of flu-like symptoms.
 
This program of systematic undercounting of infections and overcounting of deaths hass the goal of attaining a fraudulently bloated mortality rate numbers, which then are used as propaganda to justify the lockdown with all its evils.
 
 
The expectation of waves of infection and large numbers of asymptomatic carriers proves how insane it is to try to build fortresses and forcibly lock down 7 billion people and build totalitarian police states trying rigidly and violently to drive back an inexorable tsunami, when all wisdom of the ages would say all you can do is go as limp and flexible as possible and let it wash over you.
 
If waves of Corona infection, along with much lesser waves of illness, comprise some “new normal” then the only sane thing you can do is let the new normal get on with it. That’s the quickest way any illness will become milder than any actual severity the epidemic possesses right now. This alleged severity for the population at large is something constantly shrieked by governments, media, and the obedient authoritarian followers of these institutions, but never proven.
 
The most important statistic for gauging the real existential danger of any epidemic is the mortality rate among the healthy, not any stat which artificially inflates deaths which really are part of the category “dying of old age.” So far as I can see the government and media simply are commanding that one element of this latter category arbitrarily be extracted and exalted as of galactic importance to the point that all of humanity must sacrifice every aspect of our well-being, freedom and happiness for what’s clearly intended to be a permanent duration.
 
No matter what, this bug is going to do whatever it’s going to do. The world can either roll with the punches while continuing to live life, at the same time refraining from letting a totalitarian police state make a massive quantum leap; or you can rigidly resist with all your might, dragging everything out and maximizing every kind of collateral social harm while submitting to permanent tyranny.
