Jackie Walker, Anti-Semitism, Human Rights, North Dakota



Jackie Walker, British politics and anti-semitism.


“In terms of Holocaust Day, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Holocaust Day was open to all people who experienced Holocaust?”

What is wrong with saying this in an anti-semitism workshop?

and

“as a mixed-race person who is African and Jewish, I was making the point that why is the Cambodian genocide, which was after the 1940s, included and the African holocaust is not?”

She asked an honest question. A good question.


She didn't know that Holocaust Memorial day was limited to recent Holocausts.

She made a point.

Why not remember ALL Holocausts?

Why not acknowledge the universality of holocaust?

Would that not be a move towards more empathy, more peace, more honesty, less war, more peace?


William the Conqueror and the harrying of The North?

Her point is this : when this happens to any population by ANY means, when extermination or destruction of the majority of a people's civil polity and lives is a policy of a Hierarchy (South America and Spain, Belguim and Congo, Gt, Britain and Ireland, Gt. Britain and Bangladesh, Iraq, Libya, The Vatican and the children, Australia! and The Aboriginal Peoples, America and the Indigenous peoples of that land ..... ) we have to acknowledge that the lived experience of each and every individual subjected to that horror is meaningful - it says Hierarchies of Violence are corrupt.


When we look at it honestly.

It says Institutionalised Hierarchies of Violence are corrupt, evil and anti-human.

The International Statist system is still operating along those old lines of competition, war on many fronts, retaining power over a people, strategic 'interests'... etc, etc. It was the State as an institution that was the driver of all of these Holocausts.


Seeking power, those who take power all too often will claim any justification, use any demonisation and all kinds of manipulation, lies and propaganda, to promote their wars - and they do it intentionally. They always have.


No mistakes. Choices.


Iraq was a choice, not a mistake. Racism is bullying. Sexism is bully. UK Foreign Policy is bullying. To reserve Holocaust for only those events after WWII is a travesty, an irrational stance. She was correct to point it out.


We need to end the British Foreign Policy of war as a tool of strategic geo-politics.

That's her point.

If you read her comments in the full context of her life, our lives, the truth that is implicit in the point of her questioning.

So what is the point of the attempt to remove her from her role within Momentum?

That it follows the media pattern of seeking to undermine emergent people driven democratic policy formulation within a potentially electable Party which has allies outside it’s ranks…… is clear.

New Labour operatives managed the purge of voters. They were aligned with all who opposed Corbyn and Momentum. They shared advisors with those other opposers, they shared tactics, stories.

And every time, the grass roots has come back with an exacting analysis of the assault, one that exposes more of the detail of the hypocrisy, the bullying and the corruption.

They are at war. With us.

Natural Expectations, Human Rights, Living off the Land ……


Right now, in North Dakota, a continuation of an historical Holocaust is being played out.

One cannot separate the events under way and what has happened in the past. Life is a continuum.

Two Historians have shone some light on the American Revolution that gives some back ground to this situation.

The Colonial Elites had for some time sought to expand their land holdings (and empire) westwards but were stymied by two problems.

1. The presence of the Indigenous people's on the land they sought to appropriate. They did not have guns or cannon. They were therefore vulnerable to the greater military power.

2. The status of the Indigenous Peoples polities and land tenure in Europe. This latter issue was the more pressing of their problems to resolve.

European States had made a number of treaties with a number of Indigenous Nations recognising in European Law the validity of those po0lities and tenures. If this was allowed to progress, then the land to the West would be off limits, because those nations would have allies in Europe who could resist, by war fare and by economic war,

So they invented a scenario.

"No taxation without Representation"

By which they really meant, we (The Colonial Masters) want those taxes to fund our wars against the Indigenous peoples.... and we will use this pretext to break with Britain, undermine the established pattern of recognising Insigenous polities, and sweep westwards...

They were planning an operation that they knew would take at least a century. That's how far ahead these rulers think and act and plan.

The two writers are Howard Zinn and Anthony J. Hall.

The North Dakota Pipeline is a continuation of that policy.

Rights or Expectations?

I like to think of 'natural expectations' rather than 'rights'.
For me, to live off the land, as part of the land, to nurture oneself, one's community and maintain that environment in a healthy manner is a natural behaviour.

It's what all biology is doing if you look at outcome, and sense outcome as an intention.

Biology is alive and aware. I am biology.

It applies to me as I see myself - a bag of bacteria, earth material walking in the form of a human being.

This is my natural expectation - all my body systems are expecting that.

That I would spend my life nurturing the world that birthed me, in gratitude for the gift of life and with respect for my ancestors, that line of living wisdom, and with a sense of my duty to the future generations that I will be an ancestor of in turn.

Such fun! Such joy! Much hard work. Much music!

Good food, and great love in life. These are not rights, they are natural expectations.

Earth does not owe these to me, it expects me to make an effort. It does not expect that that effort will be trampled upon by bullies.... we are not adapted for that.

Rights come into play in a social situation of a hierarchy of Power, where some have more power than others and abuse those powers.

I think it's critical to make this distinction.

And yes, I have a song about it....

Recorded live @ Galstonbury...

The two enemies of indoctrination - awareness and autonomy



These are the two enemies of indoctrination - awareness and autonomy

Awareness is being sensitive to the world, paying attention to the world, observing, hearing and feeling the world, and reflecting upon it from our center.

Autonomy is the recognition of that center, and by extension, recognizing it in all others and respecting that presence in all others.

Both are keyed into natural empathy and sense of self.

Indoctrinated is the process by which these are undermined.

On the indoctrinated, mainstream concept of Self Defence:

Which says "violence is ok if you are defending yourself."

Example:

No one in NI was 'defending' anything, or anyone... by resorting to violence..

In fact it was the violence that totally derailed and disrupted the peaceful Civil Rights Movement. That was the intent. That was the outcome.

In each case I have to examine the specifics - a generalisation works across a population as a pattern identifier, as a tool of discourse but cannot be applied to the individual human case.

So for me the specifics are to be found by asking  what happened, what was done, and was there harm caused?

It wasn't 'Irish Catholics', it was bullies (mostly gangsters at the start) who happened to be Irish Catholics, and bullies who happened to be 'Unionist Protestants' and bullies who happened to be 'The British Security State' who launched a war at each other through attacking each other and attacking innocent civilians.

It's not Jews, it's bullies who happen to be Jewish, just as it's bullies who happen to be National Front, just as it's bullies who happen to be indoctrinated by Saudi Wahhabism and call themselves ISIS.... just as your local youth gang and the local adult organised criminals are all bully institutions.

It's not Americans, it's bullies who have occupied American State and Military office and abused that office.

Bullies can wear a flag, a uniform, an ideology, a justification – none of that alters the banal truth : they are bullies.

It's not The State Police Force, it's the bullies within that Institution - they are the people who need to be identified and removed.

It goes without saying that all these Institutions of Power and Governance have long been occupied by a ruling class and their acolytes, mercenaries and defenders.

We KNOW why bullies bully the strong. We know why they exploit the weak. We know why they use manipulation and indoctrination, as well as economics, as weapons, to enroll our children in their mythology. We all go through the enrollment process of Education.

The behaviour is the issue, not the 'explanations'.

Self defence has a logical, self defining limit and the logical limit is this: to stop the attacker from completing the attack so that the threat is removed and the defender can gain safety again.

No further.

Further than that and it becomes an attack.

So I see how those who claim to defend 'justly' can become adapted to the new state of at war-ness if they are not aware, in that they become adept at war, at ease with war ... and end up becoming oppressors in turn.

This happens in EVERY WAR on all sides.

War does this.

War is not a situation with a good guy bad guy narrative.

Anyone who claims or promotes the idea that (a/any) war is a good guy bad guy situation is one or all of these:

a) utterly deluded,
b) not paying attention to ALL the AVAILABLE evidence,
c) psychologically immature
d) part of the violence creation system
e) in the secret service
f) indoctrinated by school history texts
g) in the military, yet to experience combat
h) really, really naive
i) making a fortune out of war
j) a religious fanatic
k) weapons salesman
l) a dolt
m) a poltroon
n) an ejit
0) a misinformed individual
p) someone who needs help
q) a behaviourally modified organism ( BMO)
r) a 'conditioned' human being needing compassion
s) another chance to change the world, one person at a time
t) me, some 40 years ago, when I left school, and believed that there was such a black and white reality to 'war' of which I knew only through my history texts and Hollywood movies.

In other words I knew nothing and did not know that I knew nothing. I thought I knew something, yet was unsure as to what that was.

Let's be honest here, I was as deeply socially, religiously indoctrinated and warped as anyone, and I remember that state and I cannot attack another human being for being in that state.  

I sat and watched ‘Dallas’ at the edge of my seat.

I believed Tony Blair was going to make a healthy difference.

I thought that war was good because of all the useful inventions that it generated and that ‘our’ side was always right.

I believed in the Catholic God and prayed feverishly to statues even as I was being abused by priests, brothers, nuns, lay teachers.

I once thought I was an ‘entrepreneur’. I once believed I was both better than or worse than others.

I have be strong enough to trust, and walk with and perhaps indicate ways of looking and living that can help that persons awareness and autonomy emerge. It will always be their choice, their autonomy in the matter than matters most.

Many people have done the same for me. I am ever grateful to all those people.

Millions are doing this every day without any press release or publicity.

If you gather ‘news’ from the mainstream, you’d hardly know this. It’s aim is to mask as much of this humane activism as possible with a negative fear based view of humanity’s future, and by extension other human beings….

It’s all lies and manipulations.

These are the two enemies of indoctrination - awareness and autonomy.

These are the targets of the bully – anyone showing signs of either of these qualities that might inspire or energise others to do likewise.

Think for yourself, question Authority, dig for the evidence, take responsibility as the autonomous connected social nurturant animal you are. I am.

Awareness and autonomy makes the Emperor naked.

Bleak LIves Matter.



Bleak Lives Matter

A slogan is never enough.

Honest discussion is always required to clarify.... which cannot happen and will not happen in mainstream media and politics, both of which are based on half-truths, psin, lies and coercion (bullying).

The honest discussion has fallen to us, the people.

The people as journalists, historians, historical actors writing their own stories.

Black Lives Matter

All Lives Matter.

Bleak Lives Matter.

Established Power is not American or British, or Russian or Chinese, it is not Christian, Muslim or Jewish, it is none of these even though it might occupy the institutions of those states and those institutions.

It’s not even white!

It’s less a skin colour than a behaviour pattern.



The Hierarchy of Coercive Power is a social dynamic of institutional bullying that runs through the Statist system, yet it is not the Statist system, as much as it afflicts that system and inhibits it’s healthy development.

Those who operate that Hierarchy use Race as a socially divisive meme. It is intentional. Racism is an invention of the State. It has no natural progenitor.

 So, for me,  it is less about what some black people 'should do': they are busy enough dealing with the oppression's they face whilst trying to get by in such a brutally divided society -  it's about what ordinary white people as a social group need to do in pre-dominantly white countries where Institutional Power causes harm to any marginalised group or population, at home or abroad, using our taxes – we need to re-occupy the Governance systems we are funding - they we are paying for - that are currently dominated by an elite ruling class in our countries whose primary concern is their own welfare, power and wealth and who routinely ignore the harms they cause in that mission, and we need to make those institutions safe for all ordinary people, every where.


The system, as it is being abused by a clearly identifiable oligarchy, is not our common abuser. It is those who abuse their positions of power who are the abusers. Empty the system of the abusers, and it can be reformed.

We whites do have a privileged position within it.

We can take power back from the oligarchies and make it safe for all people.

We need to use that privilege to remove the bullies. Locally and nationally.

THAT'S what we need to do.

Bleak lives matter.

In as much as why do people become racist?

What’s gone so awry in that person’s life that they end up being a KKK activist, or a Cop who shoots an unarmed, non threatening woman, or a G4S Guard who assaults a detained child?

Does this question have meaning when it is about a President who launches a war of aggression to ‘bring democracy’, or a Government Minister who cuts the Independent Living Fund for disabled people to ‘save money’ - a policy which led to a massive increase of stress and early deaths, and cost more than it saved, or a Chancellor who claims ‘austerity’ as a cover for fiscal abuse?

Are those lives not bleak too?

And the bleakness of poverty, of dull boring jobs, of zero hours contracts, lack of transport,  lack of community, the bed room tax, Keith Vaz’ sex life rather than his criminal political acts….

The bleakness of homelessness, on our streets, and in refugee campes across the world.

Bleak lives matter, they affect and afflict us all.

“because to live without experiencing/ignoring ones empathy is a bleak existence indeed, however many shiny trappings you cover it in.”

a quote from a good friend of mine, D. Grinstead, (princess)

And bleakness of those who bully..... its all dehumanisation.

Poverty is imposed by concentrations of wealth.

The entire social system is raging with dishonesty.

Taking one single issue without connecting the dots to all issues is not an effective way forwards.... not for the 21st Century...

Bleak lives matter, all lives matter.

Black lives matter.

Brown lives matter.

Green lives matter.

Lives lived in poverty matter.

The children tatting rubbish in African rubbish dumps, their lives matter, and they matter enough for all of us to act in ways that reduce the rubbish dumps, build real education facilities and nurture healthy autonomy in all around us.

Love matters.

Black lives matter, and they matter enough for all of us to act in ways that reduce the violence, removes inequity, that build real community across cultures and language groups, and nurtures healthy autonomy in all around us.

And yes, we in the WEST, we ‘the tax payer’s are the ones with the REAL power to make change happen - and we are failing in that, big time, and that failure has deep and adverse impacts on the lives of Africans, South Americans, Arabs and all indigenous peoples.....  and on women and people of colour everywhere.

We have to see where we are in this.

It less about what black people 'should do' ; it's about what ordinary white people as a social group need to do – re-occupy Governance systems long dominated by the extant mostly white elite ruling class and make those safe for all people every where.

THAT'S what we need to do.

My life matters.

Your life matters.

Our lives matter.

Brian Cox, Celebrities, AGW and the basics of biology

I think we need a whole generation of people who do not know ANY celebrities. But who do understand the world they are dealing with and are energised to resolve and heal what needs to be resolved and healed.


 


Brian Cox.......?

Do I trust a personality celebrity whose sappy peurile music made his fortune by manipulating vulnerable young minds, and was readily used to usher in the wonders of Tony Blair et al?

No!

Is he a well respected, peer reviewed physicist within the Science community, who has published lots of papers?

Yes!

However, his area is esoteric, and probably of most use to the Military Industrial Complex, in areas of particle physics and weaponry. I have no idea who funds his research, or to what use it has been or can be put. So many known unknowns.

That said,  for me, and for my purposes, in the context related to the entire Climate Change discourse and all that accretes to that, he is a minor scientist, with a minor Phd. degree, and a slew of arcane papers in a specialist area that has little relevance to the very real problems we face, and is also a professional celebrity.

He is no Einstein, who was both scientist and philosopher and brutally, fearlessly honest. He is no Carl Rogers who altered the course of psychotherapy, for the better, way beyond the vision of either Freud or Jung. He is no Howard Zinn, he is not a Joseph Chilton Pearce. He is no Bill Mollison, nor is he a Masanobu Fukuoka.

And yet he feels he can use his rather large public profile, his celebrity status, to wade in to the 'climate change' discourse and bully those who challenge the mainstream narrative which he fully supports.

Celebrity.

We 'respect' certain celebrities because we have fallen for their promo campaigns.

We know nothing of their real positions, attitudes, motivations or behaviour.

Its PR.

Marketing.

Jimmy Savile. Richard Branson. Barak Obama. The Enron boys. Milton Friedman. Ronald Reagan. Kanye West.

"I used to respect ....." (insert any celebrity) always means 'I bought the lie because that was easier than critical thinking...."

And we buy those lies every day.

And again, and again, and again, again, and again, and again, ad nauseam.

Sickening. 

To rub salt into the wound, we constantly pay for the privilege of being bamboozled, groomed.

Where does their wealth come from?

It comes from us. We fund celebrity.

We have to admit that, and then forgive ourselves for being manipulated or bullied into submission through a deliberate and mediated faux peer pressure, engineered to make celebrity matter, as part of a psycho-social conditioning/indoctrination system..

Biology.

So, let's go back to basics. Biology.

Biology does not do celebrity. That's a given.

Brian Cox is adamant about a scientific consensus on Anthrogenic Global Climate Change.

What consensus?

Human activity is altering the entire planets climate systems!

Duh!

It would be more scientifically accurate to say certain kinds of human activity, (most of which are associated with Industrial Civilisation and are central to the maintenance of abusive Hierarchies of Power that rule vast swathes of Humanity) are causing massive damage to the habitat because those activities are not nurturing the habitat, and are in fact degrading biological systems and introducing a mountain of toxins that biology has yet to find a way to metabolise.

The dominant culture is thus imposing chronic stress on the biolgical  environment.

Chronic stress always leads towards degenerative disease states.

Which includes, as a possibility, climatic changes.....

That much is rather obvious.

That can be said to be a view that has consensus, even if it is not widely articulated.

Those that can see it, and the biological environment, both agree on it.

The CO2 story is just a tiny part of the whole.

Plastic bags and light bulbs are a minute part of the whole.

And certain centers of Power would rather we avoided a critical analysis of the whole.

They have too much to lose, apparently.

The IPCC has offered very little by way of a critical analysis of the behaviour, actions and outcomes of the mainstream social systems manufacturing processes, and the powers that depend upon the vast wealth those systems generate.

Some pertinent facts.

The most obvious appropriate response to climatic and environmental change is Permaculture.

Biology knows how to do this.

Biology knows how to do permaculture.

Biology is the master.

Biology uses 'the force'.

Biology has been doing this for a very, very long time indeed.

We humans have emerged from that work of Biology.

We can work with that if we choose. We can learn.

We also need to see a deep, deep change in the way industry and manufacturing operate - rather than imposed taxes to 'nudge' behaviour, or energy saving light bulbs, or wars for oil and other 'resources'.

That too has been explored.

It even has a catchy name: Cradle to Cradle.

Does Brian Cox speak about the wars, the bullying that defines Governments and Corporations? No!

Do these have an impact on environment and climate? Yes.

Does Brian Cox speak about permaculture? No!

Does Brian Cox speak about Cradle to Cradle?

Nope.... not a word.

Zip.

And yet......

Biology has been responding to climatic change for billions of years.

It can respond really rapidly.

It KNOWS how to do this. It's worth repeating. I am repeating it.

Because it is so rarely mentioned. Biology KNOWS how to evolve within a dynamically changing environment, and knows how to do that whilst maintaining nurturant cyclical processes that feed more life.

The evidence is all around us, and some of us are eating that evidence, working with it.

Permaculture works with that knowledge base, by working with the plants, the animals, the bugs, the microbes, the CLIMATE, the soil.

However, it cannot be patented, nor can it be industrialised.

Permaculture requires intimate labour to be put into practice, it also requires autonomy, critical thinking, scientific observation and deliberate responsiveness in those who undertake it. It requires people who get to know their patch of land and the plants they are working with. Intimately. Locally. Specifically.

Massive employment opportunities. Huge. Really.

Cradle to Cradle design is a process approach that has the ability to ensure that every manufacturing process returns nutrients to the environment rather than 'waste' or toxins, and then builds fecundity into the habitat.

Does Brian Cox talk about these?

Do the IPCC talk about these?

No and no!

Why?

Well, I will leave that to your imagination and intuition to work out.


Let's call it getting back to basics.


And another thing...


Any system, any name. Capitalism, Fascism, Religionism, Socialism, Shamanism, Feminism, Patriarchy, Matriarchy, Democracy, whatever; -isms of any kind.

The basic reality is that every large scale governing system devised over the past few thousand years has turned into psycho-social bullying that is fully institutionalized.

So forget the name, look at the behaviour and outcomes, and call it what it is, IF you are serious about dealing with it....

Putting it another way....

'Climate Change' as a direct result of human activity is not established fact, it is theoretical.

Yes,there is lots of data to suggest the theory, but it is nowhere near conclusive.

We know that the Sun, Moon, tectonics, etc are all massive influences and we do not know how much they contribute to the current situation.

The modelling capabilities of computers are nowhere near the reality of biology, tectnoics, the Suns influence, etc...

Climate change is a constant. It has always changed.

What we DO KNOW is what I have laid out in more detail throughout my blog - the basic behaviour of this culture that is dominant is non-nurturant, it creates toxicity and degradation, and it is based on bullying.

What we need most of all is to deal with the bullying aspect of Power, political, corporate, criminal, ideological or religious - THAT is the core problem, the rest are all symptoms...

Treating the symptoms without addressing the root causes is futile. It maintains the problem.

It is the job of EVERYONE who is an adult to look after the Earth in the best interests of all future generations - compartmentalising aspects as the IPCC and the leading bully systems of power suggest is inept at best, callous disregard for the future at worst.

Putting it another way....


All the damage being done is symptomatic of a culture predicated on hierarchies of violence, coercion, concentration of power and a sense of entitlement amongst the powerful to mediate that degree of abuse to preserve their system, their position.

No matter what symptom we discuss, unless we honestly and fearlessly appraise the core issue - Power and abuse of Power - it will remain.

The psychological climate of the majority of human beings is dominated by the bully system.

That is nowhere near the biological optimal.

Our endocrine systems do not lie.

Clarity


Let me make it clear.

EVERY adult has an inherent biological responsibility or response ability to care for the habitat so that our children inherit a healthy habitat within which they will live lives of optimal human biological health in all areas, barring volcanoes, tidal waves, storms, asteroids etc...

I do not see THAT anywhere in the CC discourse, as it stands at the moment, or anywhere else within Governance, Politics, Commerce or Religion as we know it.

War Crimes, Opinion or Evidence, Burkini's, Bullying and Jo Cox

The Big Issue.

 




War Crimes.

War Crimes and War Criminals going un-opposed, not being held to account by the taxpayers who funded those who made the decisions to go to war, and who paid for the troops and contractors tasked with prosecuting the wars.

Politicians who deliberately, and against all warnings, enabled massive bank fraud and then bailed out those banks who committed those frauds, using future taxpayer funds, thus in-debting (or indenturing) the emerging generation of students as future taxpayers and then, as if to rub salt into these open wounds, the same grouping of Politcians claimed 'Austerity' (lack of spare cash) as their excuse for a class war against the vulnerable and the poor.

That is the core issue here.

Opinion vs Evidence

The people who allowed this to happen, who voted for and continue to vote for the politicians on any side who administered and are yet administering all of this, are the enablers of these crimes. In that I include the mainstream media, and the conspiracy theorist industry.

One cannot, as so often happens, blame those who did not vote, out of sheer ennui, desperation or a learned, evidence based distaste for a system that is actively an institutionalized bully system.

Most of the those people did look at the evidence, and decided that the only option was not to participate in hypocrisy.

That is understandable.

There is no excuse in the 21st Century for not taking the time to examine the evidence, the data, when making choices that affect (or afflict) the entire community.

This must be addressed to all those who voted for the politicians who have, and are, committing war crimes and attacking the most vulnerable people in our society.

"You are not looking at the evidence!"

Selfishness, my mortgage, my job, my party loyalty, my allegiances, my prejudices, what I read in the papers, or see in the News on TV etc are all invalid bases for making choices that affect Governance.

We do have a social responsibility to each other. To cause no harm.

That ought to be obvious. Duty of Care. Due Diligence.

Opinion cannot replace or supplant evidence, on matters related to the administration of a communities shared contributory resources,with mere opinion.

We need to make THAT 100% CLEAR.

I refuse to argue about opinions - I say present the evidence, the facts, the outcomes.

Do not be trolled by those who insist on their 'right' to hold and impose an opinion - they can hold it, but they have no right to impose it, as that imposition is an abuse.

Fight back with honesty, truth, evidence, determination and vision, a vision that must include the liberation of those who hold opinion over evidence from the trap they are in.

Do whatever it takes in terms of a discourse.

France's Burkini Ban


It's a deliberate provocation, designed to inflame wounded people on the edges of violence into acting out that violence, and to give a false basis to those who would support violence against France on the basis of Islamaphobiic policies proving their case.

Institutionalised bullying is a scientifically mediated strategic, tactical weaponised behaviour system. It includes grooming, labeling, distraction, slander, slur, innuendo, opinion over evidence, gas lighting, lies and set-ups, as well as the many tools of direct and indirect violence. It's intent is to ensure that Power is retained, enhanced and projected.

ALL Governments or Power Hierarchies use it, media are utterly aware and complicit, and we see it in movies and 'pop' culture all the time...

We are being politically inept and socially foolish (I know it is scary, frightening to look at, yet looking away will not deal with it) if we do not take the time to recognise these tactics, and their position within the strategies of Power.

  We must also work out how to counter it, within ourselves, within our families and communities as much as across Society as a whole - otherwise those who are living where the bombs are being dropped or detonated, abroad and at home, will continue to suffer, and we will suffer, and our children suffer even more if we fail to address it.

In all it's forms.

We are paying for it, literally funding it.

Taxpayers pay for ALL the Wars, all the killing.

Superb blog, by Kitty Jones, on how bullying operates.

Read it.

Be armed, rather than armored.

Jo Cox.

Jo Cox, a British female labour politican murdered, assassinated in an extreme act of violence, less than 3 months ago.

Silence.

Silence of the Lambs, or Silence of the Wolves?

Why is this not being discussed by the Labour Party membership, with the same passion as the leadership non-contest?

Who killed Jo Cox?

Britain did.

Media manipulation and trolling, bricks through the TV, undermining democracy.

Media techniques, movie techniques, trolling and grooming.... these are the realities we all face every day.

They know how to make one hate a character or love one; they can switch you from hate to love in a matter of minutes.

How often have you wanted to throw something at the TV or shout at a presenter or politician because you sensed something was way out of order in the way the material was presented?

Charlie Brooker's Newswipe series took a humorous satirical look at this.

This video, on an interview and set-up piece by C4, about Jeremy Corbyn, attacking Jeremy Corbyn, explores the detail of how some of this works.

It is nothing less than professionalised bullying.

Institutional bullying.



The techniques are revealed. The set-up is obvious. The intent, utterly malign. This not journalism, it is bullying, or propaganda.

Grooming the audience... every mainstream media outlet and many social media outlets and 'activists' use these techniques. Advised by professionals.

Playing on known vulnerabilities of ordinary folk who are unsuspecting.

To preserve the power establishment's status and pre-eminence.

100% anti-democratic.

Freedom of speech carries with it a responsibility to be honest, truthful.

Anyone who lies or bullies in any public domain in this fashion deserves to be held to account.

Why are the Establishment so worried?

The UK media and journalists who sold the War of Aggression against Iraq, and covered aspects of it up to a massive degree.

The BBC is culpable for their participation in this propaganda campaign.

Journalists and management alike.

That is what is driving the opposition to Corbyn more than any other single issue.

He wants to bring those who committed war crimes to account.

So too do millions of UK tax payers whose hard earned cash was so horrifically abused in the prosecution of that war, and others, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen, including the support our Government has been providing to 'moderate rebels' (violent militia) across the Middle East, not to mention weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel etc...

There are close to 5000 establishment figures who were directly involved. They are all culpable.

The Establishment senses that it is at risk.

War Crimes investigations would unearth a formerly hidden world, and represents the greatest leverage we have as a people, a responsible people, a caring people, to use to dislodge that power establishment.

They did commit war crimes.

And there is more than that, the status and power the Establishment have occupied for centuries, their sense of entitlement, their vast wealth and holdings have driven UK Politics for far too long.

They like that power.

Addicts.

We pay for their addiction. And the Syrian, Libyan, Yemeni, Afghani and others pay in blood.

We have to up our game, considerably, to meet the needs of all our children's futures, and their children too.

That is what this is all about.

Ed Milliband, Corbyn, and children as politically astute non-voters.

Ed Millibland.

I watched him Ed Milliband being put in his place, politely, gently, by a 13 year old boy, at the Power Inquiry Conference, London, in 2006.


The boy was at the front row and he had his hand up as the panel were discussing the voting age, discussing lowering it. Or not.


Millibland was against lowering it. Most of the panel was against lowering it. He intimated that they (under 17s) did not know enough to be trusted with a vote. He was not alone in that.



The boy held his hand up, for quite a while, patiently waiting for their attention.

Eventually, the panel asked the boy to speak.

The boy, 13 years old (worth repeating) said this :

"The money being wasted in Iraq and Afghanistan: wouldn't it be better spent to give it to pensioners whose pensions were being reduced by Government and bad banking?"

The crowd erupted in applause.

The boy was correct. Succinct. Polite. Spot on.

The war was not popular in that room. Most of the applause was for that, rather than for the way the child demonstrated to the adults his ability to think clearly and articulate that thinking in unambiguous terms.

The panel ignored his comment, and went on to someone else. The discussion did not refer to the boy again, or his point. They disenfranchised that child, and all children.They also disenfranchised our pensioners, and all Iraqi and Afghani citizens. Nice! Not.

The adults on the panel just passed by an intelligent, clear sighted child...... because they did not have the heart, the empathy, the self assured-ness to admit their inadequacies, to meet the boy as an equal .... they are callous smoothies, Millibland et al in Parliament.

Nice people, with attitudes that are dysfunctional.

Authoritarian. They smile, they preen, they soundbite to attract voters.

And they let Tony Blair and the British Establishment get away with mass murder.

Children are paraded to demonstrate the candidates adherence to 'family values' - children should be seen, and not heard.

Sadly this is true for many adults, who as children were treated in the same manner.

It is called 'traditional family values'.  The teacher as 'authority'. Reward and punishment as a parenting style.

Nudge theory. Religion. Indoctrination.

"I have the natural (God given) right to smack my children!"

The Law still permits this.

The complex of hierarchy of violence infects the home.

For me, parents have an inherent duty of care both to their children, and to society at large, to disinfect their homes of that hierarchy, not least to better equip them for the struggles ahead in their lives, dealing with what we as parents have not dealt with. Executive power that tramples on the communities best interests.

Iraq. Libya. Cutting funding to Community Voluntary Sector services, whilst privatising them. Care for profit.


Many, many parents need healing, and probably the best way to enable that is to inspire them to start really listening to and hearing their children as complete persons, growing and to help them see that how they were (mis)treated as children impacts and informs their parenting in the present, and that it does not have to be that way.

We grow together.

Politics, democracy, and sound healthy governance starts at home.

Corbyn

This ties into what is being done to Corbyn by the Establishment.

The underlying issue is less about Corbyn than it is about the stance he takes that policy decision making is a grass roots response ability - one that all hierarchies detest above all else.

That transfer of power to the grass roots is their greatest perceived enemy.
The technique of maintaining a narrative that is focused on Corbyn and 'leadership' is being run in order to keep that paradigm off the public radar. Every effing day!

Blame the immigrants, the victimised, the children, the convicts, the trots, the Corbynista's, the Blairites. All of us are prone to such judgementalism.

The power of Punishment and Reward.

So there is a need to de-activate that track, and set another discourse in motion, on social media, and in commentary on mainstream media.... and elsewhere.
"We pay their wages. We instruct our public servants."

If we fail to take that response ability up, then we are partly responsible for the adverse policies those who wield a distal power get away with.

We are not wholly responsible in that so much of politiking is the psychological manipulation of known vulnerabilities the exist across a population. Known vulnerabilities that are the direct result of indoctrination, bullying and much else that is mediated by power establishments through governance systems which we all fund.

That is what 'focus groups' are designed to tap into. Find those vulnerabilities, and leverage them.

The old politik is dying, not least because it is killing so many of us, and we need, our children and their children will need us to take up our responsibility towards them as an entire generation, not just for our immediate children, but for all of them, everywhere, to build a new politics that is about healthy governance and power sharing as a social response to the changing dynamics of our world rather than power as a central force dictating what happens.

Blair used PR techniques to get into and hold onto power - because those techniques work, and they work because of our vulnerabilities.... so we have to deal with our vulnerablities, we have to immunise ourselves from that kind of manipulation, as part of our process, moving forwards.

The EU referendum was a classic case of this technique - conning an entire population into a forced choice, where there was no evidence, no data with which to realistically compare the choices and their outcomes forced people onto opinions, personal opinions.

Choose to leave the EU, by all means. But make a choice based on sound evidence, rather than myth and fear, rage and desperation or sheer frustration. Demand that the discourse is evidence based.

That we allowed that to happen speaks volumes.

Women reject the use of gender to silence legitimate political opposition: an open letter



An open letter by some active women folk looking at the basis of the accusations of misogynistic behaviours emerging from the Media, directed at Jeremy Corbyn and Momentum activists...

Women reject the use of gender to silence legitimate political opposition

"We, the undersigned, women Labour members or supporters from different backgrounds, ethnicities and regions, condemn attempts by some women MPs to blame the Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell for alleged intimidation. The accusations are baseless and are part of an escalating witch-hunt against Corbyn and his supporters.

The tragic murder of Jo Cox MP, for which a right-wing racist with mental health problems has been charged, has been invoked as if it was connected with anti-racist, pro-refugee Corbyn. A brick through the side window of a building used by many groups, including the local MP, has been attributed to Corbyn followers without any proof. And we are warned against holding peaceful demonstrations outside MPs offices or calling for them to be deselected."

The full text of the letter is truly worth reading.

The core point is that to use such slurs demeans the entire political process, and does nothing to help confront and resolve the issues around power, sexualised violence, abuse and harm; if anything it undermines our efforts in this area.

It is clear, accurate, compassionate and written with utter integrity, by women activists engaged in intensive daily work to support women (and by extension, men and children).

It feeds back into my many blog postings about bullying in politics, violence in society, hierarchies of power, trauma related behaviour patterns, and much else besides...

Media Trolling


Media - Read and react, or read, analyse, check and respond.

We have a choice.

Our choices dictate outcomes, especially with regards to bringing about a healthy, sane, nurturant society.

The reactive mode is easily manipulated.

The responsive much less so, to the degree that any individual has worked through his or her own issues around power and sense of self - whether it is truly emergent or laced with internalized system values (shame, guilt, blame, praise, reward, punishment ... are all clues to where we still hold onto internalized system values).

Many people are making this choice, consciously, deliberately, and bringing that to the table of politics and governance.

And this choice gets far less attention and examination in the media than the justifications for war or for Corbyn's so-called 'unelectability'.

Established Power's self protection.

It would appear the established power does want to enable such choices by acknowledging the multitude of stories of those who do. The mainstream power establishment media is peppered with justifications of violence, with sexism, fantasy, ideology and sales pitches.

The Inquiry into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse underway in the UK has lost yet another chair-person. We do not yet know why. It is very sad and very, very worrying.

The Australian Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse is revealing just how endemic cover-ups, mitigations, institutional desire to protect itself are in this area....

Ireland and the United States have had multiple Inquiries.

The evidence is immense and mounting all the time.

The response of Power is way behind what the evidence suggest would be appropriate.

"Houston, we have a problem."

The Astronauts fixed the problem with assistance from Ground Control.

They worked together.

The Government (and The Vatican) needs to work with and for Survivors, not try to get around them.

The Labour party MPs who are opposing Corbyn need to work with the grass roots of the party, not try to get around them.

It is the same pattern.

Violence.


Tribal is an odd word to use to describe violent systems.

Here's why.

This is a chart of social behavioural characteristics of different societies (tribes, sic) from a meta-analysis by James Prescott in the 1970s,  which looks at whether or not they are truly nurturant or controlling, and indicates the sets of behaviours associated with each.


Societies with very different child relating modalities, and very different outcomes...

And the common link between the emergence of violence or nurturance appears to revolve around the way a given society relates to and treats the children.

If we want to resolve these problems, we start with parenting at the very base of society, as the very base of society.... which means the work women do for women is absolutely critical.
Here is an article I wrote expanding on the chart by James Prescott.


The website www.violence.de is very useful in exploring this issue.




The Neurobiology of Trauma.

Here is an example of one aspect of that work, related to the neurobiology of trauma, and trauma informed responses to sexual abuse which counter the 'traditional' responses which are the subject of numerous national inquiries. Informative, direct, clear and deeply compassionate, it also hints at the problems with inherited traditional approaches to sexual abuse allegations, which are indicators on the nature of our Society and it's power structures.



In another recent blog I posted a basic outline for anyone interested in this area of human exploration, knowledge and healing, with some links to key writers and researchers in this area..

These insights into the neurobiology of trauma indicate that in utero trauma can occur, if the mother is subjected to trauma events or chronic stress beyond her ability to control. They also feed into child development issues....

Everyone of us carries some of the bully psychology within us to one degree or another until we resolve it within ourselves. Social conditions and socialised conditioning tend to make it so.

That's why we become bystanders.


Resolve it with insight, evidence and self reflection.

Climate Change - what climate, whose climate, whose fear?

1. Biology responds to dynamic environmental changes by making precise changes to meet the dynamic changes to maintain the nutrient flow and balance. The old paradigm of random mutation is a lie, a piece of propaganda, designed to challenge an older lie, that of the supremacy of the Gods of the hierarchically violent societies.


2. We are biology at our base. Biology is fundamentally nurturant, it leads towards thriving communities of diverse organisms and living systems constantly modulating and responding to a dynamic environment.

Optimal Biological Health is a mandate for each individual, each species and the entire biome of Earth.

3. The Industrial Civilisation and all Hierarchies of Violence as social constructs are, by definition, an outright rejection of 1 and 2.

4. Fear is the worst driver of healthy change. Fear also drives Industrial Civilisation and Hierarchies of Violence. Likewise anger and hatred. They are in essence abuse systems that become Institutionalised. Bully systems.

5. The difference between a response and a reaction is key to how this genral issue is being framed in the public domain. A response looks at the situation, tries to understand as much as possible, and makes a choice and keeps an eye on what is happening, is prepared to meet new information and integrate it into the response.

A fear reaction tends to be knee-jerk, ideological and inadequate to the task of a fluid response.

6. Fear tends to urge people to look away, and seek a 'leader' to get them out of the shituation. Fear tends to suggest we are relatively powerless. Fear and 'leadership' are bed fellows in Violent Hierarchies.

7. A rational response would suggest various ways to maximise the changes, rather than trying to stop them. Which we cannot do. Climate has always, always changed over time.

8. Permaculture has all the design features to maximise the changing climate patterns, rapidly and accurately. It also contains indicators and practices that undermine concepts of hierarchical thinking and psychology. Permaculture is returning to biological optimal health. Fundamentals such a 'there is no waste' are meaningful.

9. The entire issue is directly linked to how we as individuals and small communities engage with governance and the administration of shared contributory resources - in essence the situation demands that we mature, that we devote time to the matters of governance and move away from careers, mortgage servicing, macro economics and become more connected again.It demands that we become more nurturant, we take personal and collective responsibility to ensure that nutrient cycles are maintained, for all life.

10. That is in effect a psychological and social climate change modality.... self governance is the oldest form of governance in the human species, it has been supplanted by Violent Hierarchies that tooled up to expand their reign.

11. The system of power itself, in evolutionary terms, is a vast human psycho-climate change, and we need to recognise that, we need to base ourselves in our fundamental biological 'nature' in order to respond more accurately and NO EXTANT GOVERNING OR ECONOMIC SYSTEM will volunteer for that.

12. They will manipulate and resist to the very end.

13. DO NOT LOOK TO THEM FOR WHAT YOU MUST DO YOURSELVES.

14. Don't worry, in 10,000 years it will be very different. We cannot kill the planet, we cannot destroy the life force of biology. We can only destroy our chances of healthy nurturant happy living. The planet is fine, the other species are fine, biology is fine.

15. The culture is the problem, not humanity. Gods are not the answer. This life is a glorious, full body, sensory jam, not a rehearsal.

16. With that in mind we are invited to stand up and confront and dismantle the systems of hierarchical violence with all the love and humour and robust physicality we can whilst remembering to love, party and laugh as often as we can, without dropping the ball.

Abuse : Origins, root causes, recovery and re-alingment with optimal human biological health


 
 
The resolution of the issue of abuse is not in punishment, it is in altering the way the society as a whole relates to a treats children.

Of course, known serial abusers must be segregated, isolated from society at large, because we cannot trust them. That goes without saying. It is a health and safety matter of extreme importance. Punishment is not effective as a way to deal with this problem.

"The psychology of any given family, community or society is both revealed and perpetuated in how that family, community or society relates to and treats the children".

Chronic stress degrades all known biological systems, and leads to disease. Unresolved trauma leads directly to chronic stress, as does war, poverty and all forms of abuse.

These are not inevitables, nor are they unknowns.

They are all the result of choices made by adults.

Here is a detailed chart outlining the social behavioural characteristics of various societies, which was collated in the 70s.
http://www.violence.de/prescott/letters/Profiles_Peaceful_v_Violent.pdf

Research since then into endocrine systems, autonomous systems, in utero development and psychology, trauma studies, inter-generational trauma behaviour patterning, history, anthropology, neuroscience, biochemistry, child development and psychopathology confirm the insights of this survey.

Researcher/writers such as Alice Miller, Judith Herman, David Chamberlain, Oliver James, Joseph Chilton Pearce, Carl Rogers, Derrick Jensen, Gabor Mate, Kitty Jones, Robert Zapolsky, David Smail and many, many others are great resources in this.

I URGE you to access the data, the evidence, and go through the works of the writers listed above if you are genuinely concerned about child abuse....

I say this because I want to help you, and all of us, to understand this dynamic so that we can work together to apprehend abusers, to prevent further abuse emerging as it does in such massive numbers and realign our social systems with optimal human biological health.

I am a Survivor of long term intentional child abuse.

I speak and write with some knowledge of this subject.

Both in terms of addressing my own abusive and destructive learned behaviors and my recovery from the trauma I endured for the best part of 20 years.

This blog is where I join the dots on all of this research by people who literally have saved my life and enabled me to return to a degree of optimal biological health.

At some time it will become a book, a website, an interactive mind map and a documentary.

I do this for myself, I do it for you and I do it for my great grand children and all their contemporaries.


Kindest regards
