Marx letter to President Lincoln

Sir:

We congratulate the American people upon your re-election by a large majority. If resistance to the Slave Power was the reserved watchword of your first election, the triumphant war cry of your re-election is Death to Slavery.

From the commencement of the titanic American strife the workingmen of Europe felt instinctively that the star-spangled banner carried the destiny of their class. The contest for the territories which opened the dire epopee, was it not to decide whether the virgin soil of immense tracts should be wedded to the labor of the emigrant or prostituted by the tramp of the slave driver?

When an oligarchy of 300,000 slaveholders dared to inscribe, for the first time in the annals of the world, “slavery” on the banner of Armed Revolt, when on the very spots where hardly a century ago the idea of one great Democratic Republic had first sprung up, whence the first Declaration of the Rights of Man was issued, and the first impulse given to the European revolution of the eighteenth century; when on those very spots counterrevolution, with systematic thoroughness, gloried in rescinding “the ideas entertained at the time of the formation of the old constitution”, and maintained slavery to be “a beneficent institution”, indeed, the old solution of the great problem of “the relation of capital to labor”, and cynically proclaimed property in man “the cornerstone of the new edifice” — then the working classes of Europe understood at once, even before the fanatic partisanship of the upper classes for the Confederate gentry had given its dismal warning, that the slaveholders’ rebellion was to sound the tocsin for a general holy crusade of property against labor, and that for the men of labor, with their hopes for the future, even their past conquests were at stake in that tremendous conflict on the other side of the Atlantic. Everywhere they bore therefore patiently the hardships imposed upon them by the cotton crisis, opposed enthusiastically the proslavery intervention of their betters — and, from most parts of Europe, contributed their quota of blood to the good cause.

While the workingmen, the true political powers of the North, allowed slavery to defile their own republic, while before the Negro, mastered and sold without his concurrence, they boasted it the highest prerogative of the white-skinned laborer to sell himself and choose his own master, they were unable to attain the true freedom of labor, or to support their European brethren in their struggle for emancipation; but this barrier to progress has been swept off by the red sea of civil war.

The workingmen of Europe feel sure that, as the American War of Independence initiated a new era of ascendancy for the middle class, so the American Antislavery War will do for the working classes. They consider it an earnest of the epoch to come that it fell to the lot of Abraham Lincoln, the single-minded son of the working class, to lead his country through the matchless struggle for the rescue of an enchained race and the reconstruction of a social world.

they were wearing uniforms…

they were dragging a body by its feet along a hard concrete floor. this happened at 2 am. the body appeared to be dead. A blond man aged in his 20s.

I looked for a story about it in the newspaper but didn’t find anything. There was a small story about me, though.

easter…

I used to like Easter because back in the 70s, it was usually cool and raining. It was like that in 1972. But by the mid-80s things had changed so that Easter was hot. And dry.

Global warming is responsible and it can be observed as a gradual progression. Summer is longer, Winter is more extreme and shorter. It’s no wonder that authorities have said the last couple years were the hottest on record. Like the whole planet is beginning to show unmistakable signs of global warming.

But I have to live through it here in Australia, and what annoys me a lot now is how when the weather is announced, they always describe above average temperatures as good. Like, it’s going to be a nice sun shiny day of 32 degrees, they’ll say, and never ever talk about average temperatures. I guess it’s like that because the TV people broadcast open air events, sports mainly, which take place during the start of Summer. They have a vested interest in bright sunshiny days, and don’t serve the community in any fashion at all. Just money making greed right out front.

But my bet is that this Easter will also be a hot one. I’d just love it to be cool and raining though.

Have a Happy Easter!

hot as hell…

The average temp for this month is about 27 c, mid summer, but the weather has been acting up and there have been many days over 30, and even over 40. I have definitely noticed that when summer rolls in, it’s usually, at least nowadays, hotter than it’s ever been before. I tend to agree with those who blame it on global warming.

The problem with this heat is there’s no wind. The air is still and mostly there aren’t any clouds overhead. Just blazing sunshine, and nights that stay hot, like 30 C.

There’s a feeling of frustration which comes over me, because there’s nothing that can be done to change this weather, short term. I can find ways to keep relatively cool, but outside it’s blistering heat and driving a car in it is pretty bad when you don’t have air-conditioning, which I don’t have in my car.

To counter it I have started eating potato products. Not fries, but potato salads which are filling and which have put on some weight.

Anyway, the recent extreme cold conditions in the northern hemisphere seem to be linked to the extreme heat we’re going through now. There have been some who claim everything happened because California legalised the use of “grass” but unless they are attributing divine status to weed, I just don’t see the connection. But I have seen blogs which say that weed acts against cancer and normalises the body. But anyway, that’s a pipe dream, because where I am, they aren’t going to legalise it soon or ever. The federal government is trying to take advantage of it all by creating medical marijuana businesses to sell it to places like Canada. But in the state it’s a Labor regime that’s been in office for so long I don’t remember a time when they weren’t in power. But they don’t seem to have any policy regards weed, and so it’s still illegal here, but global warming is fine and this insidious weather is just something we all have to put up with.

Since John Lennon’s death over 1 million people have been killed in gun violence in USA…

The news is censored both coming from USA and inside USA. According to govt TV here, there has been an act of mass murder every day this year, and yet not one was reported. Mass murder is defined as 4 or more people being killed by gun violence.

USA is a democracy and so censoring the news is one way to shape public opinion, the people can’t have an opinion about something they don’t know is happening. When a really “big” mass murder takes place there is usually spineless talk about gun control, or about limiting the availability of high powered automatic weapons. But so far it’s never gone further than “talk” in Congress.

Imagine what would happen if everyone was made aware of the mass murders taking place every day in USA. They would have protest marches and petitions and would force the government to do something to stop the carnage. And I think that’s why the news has been censored inside USA and also externally. To stop dissemination of information so as to prevent people from having real political views.

It is literally George Orwell’s prophecy book, 1984, where very large amounts of time are spent sanitising the news so that Big Brother comes across as a benign force. etc etc

More people have been killed through gun violence in USA than were killed in Vietnam, and subsequent wars world wide. And don’t get it wrong, there isn’t a civil war taking place either. It’s the government refusing to take responsibility for public safety etc.

UFOs

Firstly, let us remember, just as for-instances some spectacular and irrefutable events where there are a mass of confirmatory sightings of ‘Flying Saucers” or “Ufo’s”…

Now- Forget about the ‘greys’, the ‘talls’, the ‘paideans’, Ashtar and all the rest: they are all figments of the imaginations of their authors, and regurgitation and elaboration by those who followed.

The human mind abhors a ‘vacuum’ (i know, hard to believe)- so to fill out empty spaces the contrived archetypical ‘gestalt’ is evoked- whether aliens, angels, demons, illuminati- whatever. It is unfortunate that so many have had the ‘leisure’ time to be able to write down their fantasies and others the inclination to digest it. Then as a virus it spreads and infects.

The problem with the UFO is that it was quickly taken over by remnants of Spiritualism, Theosophy, Thelema, Hermetics and other incomplete and half understood pseudo-esoteric or esoteric systems. Much of the material that is today “offered” as the substance of so-called Contact is nothing more than the imaginative ramblings engendered through such inventions as Automatic Writing or Channelling and, just as in the story of Spiritualism, once someone gives ‘permission’ for others to follow then everyone gets in on the ‘act’ and suddenly becomes a “channel”- thus the plethora of “Imminent Landings” and “Ascension” material which has become such a plague.

The Abduction authors who have promulgated this archetype are of the same ilk, though their antecedents are somewhat different than those of the early contactees or the ‘ascension’ crowd. Whitley Strieber for example was studying the Gurdjieff Work just prior to his “opening” by his Grays- and in Communion his psychological analysis is 80% coloured by Gurdjieff’s teachings which is the only thing that gives the book any resonance, intelligence or gravitas- the rest comes from the usual ‘low’ places.

The fundamentals are the same, relatively, however for all the players in the ‘field’ – they seem to know so much but at the same time all have offered startlingly ridiculous ‘prophetic’ warnings which have, of course, proven to be time and time again sheer nonsense. I remember vividly Whitley Streiber, for example again, pronouncing the imminent arrival of millions of ships under the cover of what mainstream astronomy described as a comet, Hale Bopp. World wide channelling by the “experts” confirmed the Companion and the mass of ships and even “leaks’ by Vatican sanctioned astronomers were used as confirmation.

My own predication at the time was that they were all deluded as usual and that nothing whatsoever would occur. I have made many predictions such as this and so far my success rate is 100%. Perhaps I know more than these so called experts. But how could I? I haven’t written books on the subject, I am not a lecturer at UFO conferences, am not on radio interview shows, am not famous. Oh yeah, and I’ve had more contact with the phenomenon than probably 99% of the experts.

So, whatever these “experts” do Know, (with a big ‘K’) it is so incomplete as to render them almost as confused as anyone else, and yet they write so many books! author dvd’s! and lecture away with such aplomb, barely raising a sweat! How many times have I heard the argument against ‘fakery’ being something along the lines of, “But what do they have to gain from these ‘tall tales’ , except ridicule”? I have even seen Whitley Strieber whine about how devastated his financial position became after he finally, and publicly ‘debuted’ Communion. Yeah sure, I came down in the last shower. Look, what is “in it” for these “experts” is the same as anywhere else on this planet- Financial gain, Fame and publicity, a career as an ‘expert’. It is simply a fabrication to suggest that there is no money or even social gain in UFO’s or Contact stories. And apart from that humans, as we should all know by now, have a definite predilection towards leading others up the proverbial garden path- they lie, it’s in their make up- they can’t help themselves.

But as in all good disinformation the bullshit is generated by something real- maybe even a significant event personally experienced, but probably mostly plagiarised from other sources. Adamski may have had some sort of real contact, some real experience- but whatever it was it certainly had nothing to do with the simplistic and degenerating tale he weaved throughout his career as number one Contactee- the stories of his trips to other inhabited planets of our solar system are absurd…and yet the message of his space friends concerning the dire consequences of our way of life we now can see as correct. Nuclear proliferation, pollution, greed, war.

We now ‘know’ or have chosen to acknowledge, the dramatic climatological crises that we and our home world faces- due to humanity’s design and use of energy we are faced with a increasingly threatening future, in fact humanity’s very survival as a species is at risk.

Funnily enough this entire scenario was predicted as early as the 1920’s, and then in the forties and fifties by so called Alien Vistors, through the medium of what has come to be known as UFO Contactees. If we had listened way back then, would we be in the mess we are in now?

As an aside, there has always been a rumour that a group of certain extra-terrestrials did in fact meet with the President of the United States in the 1950’s and offered help and guidance, they warned of coming climactic and catastrophic dangers that may be ahead. This help was rejected because it didn’t involve the handing over of a wish list of US/MILITARY/INDUSTRIAL technology. No, the ‘aliens’ offered only ‘spiritual technology’…to the military that was like offering a dinner of raw vegetables to a steak addict. This rumoured ‘meeting’ has some tantalizing tit-bits of almost-confirmation in the form of some documentation as to where the President was at the supposed time of the Event and also a document from one of the participants in the meeting, who sent a letter about it to a friend. The letter came first, then investigation into the President’s whereabouts on the day in question seemed to confirm it, in the usual ‘mysterious’ way that anything is confirmed in this area.

SO, we have had no mass landings….and no attacking hoards of aliens, and yet they have been in our skies for decades, and have made many attempts to show themselves in mass sightings which could not be refuted…they have made their presence known at Nuclear Missile Silos….they have flown around NASA launched missions. “They” obviously have a sense of humour, and mission: but above all there is consideration- for our politics, our culture and our level of awareness.

Many have written about ‘contact’ with these so called ‘higher intelligences’, and personally they all sound derivative and mostly plain stupid. But what about the ‘countless’ who have not written about their experiences? The trouble here however, is in ‘contamination’ from what is out in the public domain- and we are all conditioned by our environment and culture, but still there are, must be, at least some individuals who have been able to move through the experience of ‘contact’ with some objectivity, a minimal amount of ‘contamination’, and then without the urge or ‘need’ to proselytise the experience with the usual corruption.

The basic process is this: there is contact (which is remembered consciously) with the phenomenon when young- usually this experience comes in the form of a puzzling event, vivid enough to be Remembered by the more conscious parts of the self or brain. Along with this personal ‘event’ there is/are usually co-relational events in the environment of the individual, such as a series of sightings, earth movements, crop circles and so on. For example here is an ‘event’ which was shared with me by someone I have complete trust in.

This person has had a memory, their first memory, of being in their cot as a child, in the semi darkness and alone, they were standing holding the bars of the cost and in the midst of some sort of earth tremor.

Not remarkable at all, really- except when one considers the details- where were the adults, especially considering there was a an ‘earthquake’ in progress? And of course there is nothing even remotely to do with UFO’s etc, however this person has always associated this event with another event, a dream. In this dream:

a huge space ship lands and is surrounded by a mass of people, along with the dreamer ( a child at the time). Suddenly a doorway of the ship opens, and the mass of people as one fall to their knees- all except the child dreamer, who instead walks into the ship.

A dream, so what? Yes, but again this associated within the self of the experiencer with other later memories. Can you see the pattern?

These events are all remembered together, in a line so-to-speak- within the ‘consciousness of the individual, or their ‘brain’, these memories form a constellation- a ‘magnetic-centre-of-gravity- so to say.

Now when this person was much much older they went back to research the first memory- the earth movements. They had lived in an area which indeed did have a history of earthquake activity- but within a ten year period either side of their own roughly pinpointed time of event there were no recordings of earth movement: and seismic stations were in operation there in this modern western city. The person was confirmed in their own belief that this event was something more than just a physical event- and according to records it was not a real physical event or if it was it was localised in the house of the experiencer.

However, with further research the person discovered, lurking in a government library an account of a Television news story of the right time for their won personal event. The news story covered a series of strange events which occurred one night in the experiencers city. There were a series of earth tremors, unrecorded by seismic equipment and at the same precise time several sightings of UFO’s flying over the area. Interestingly, the reports of earth tremors were on the other side of the city from where the experiencer lived- there were no reports from her own area.

When this old report was discovered by the person involved there was a definite sensation of ‘completion’ ‘confirmation’- she said that “Of course it was about UFO’s!!! What else”.

The person who shared her story with me feels strongly that the whole event was somehow staged, so that the ‘treasure’ of the truth of her own experiences could be discovered much later on- and she also feels, due to other experiences, that she was not alone in being ‘contacted’ that night so many years ago.

This pattern- early events in a correlational field with later events…is definitely a part of the process. And easy to see why, perhaps- it provides a way of contact which provides confirmation of intimacy, “Yes We are the ones who were with you before”.

And the way that the whole process enfolds, leaves the discoveries and so on, to the individual- there is no coercion in that respect, although obviously ‘interference’ has occurred.

The person also shared with me other events which have correlates with the so-called ‘abduction’ phenomenon, however she has a completely different take on the subject than the usual mainstream approach, although she thinks Whitley Strieber is ‘getting there’, and then in the same breath condemns him for contaminating the culture with his own ‘half understood ramblings’ and his ensuing predictions, pronouncements and additions. Interesting also is that she shared the study of G. I. Gurdjieff’s teachings with him too.

Timothy Good

Timothy Good is a well known UFO researcher of longstanding. He is generally thought of as an honest and balanced reporter of the ufological. However, in the past week or so he has, in an interview on the UK based internet-radio show The Unexplained hosted by Howard Hughes, he spoke of his total belief in Alien Abductions and their program of creating Alien-Human Hybrids, and his great respect for the chief proponent, over many years, of this idea, Dr. David Jacobs, who we are told is about to do a big conference in the U.K.

Now, one of the most widespread events of the last few years, in the ufological world at least, has been the unfrocking of Dr. David Jacobs and indeed the whole UFO ABDUCTION RESEARCH field.

David Jacobs, high priest of Ufo Abduction and Hybrid lore, was unfrocked, as I said, through a research case of his with a person called pseudonymously, Emma Woods. Ms. Woods kept a complete record (available on the net freely) of all her dealings with Jacobs, including tape recordings of all her ‘hypnotic regression sessions’ with Jacobs, which he conducted over the phone with her. The two had never met in real life, face to face. Emma Woods’ record shows Jacobs as a highly paranoid, manipulative individual and his research methods as fundamentally flawed, reckless, insidious and depraved. His conclusions based on all that are therefore worse than useless.

The Emma Woods case, and her material, are commonly known and widely available on the net. There have been many articles and podcasts analysing the material.

Timothy Good therefore has made a bold statement that he respects, (a.) The research of David Jacobs and, (b.) The man himself.

This attitude generally flies in the face of the now almost consensus view of Dr. David Jacobs.

In the face of this strange publicly stated attitude of Timothy Good I went back and listened to an early interview on the BBC when he released his book, Alien Liaison The Ultimate Secret back in 1991 and was spruiking it.

He was introduced as ‘not a crank, not a sensation seeker’, but all that follows shows, to me at least, distinctly that he is a crank and sensation seeker, and spinning almost every one of his sources. Referring to Bob Lazar as a ‘physicist’ and using him as a serious source, saying that Lazar’s security clearance was 38 levels above Top Secret; Using the infamous TV SHOW featuring the so called CIA whistleblowers with bird name designations who delivered the whole plethora of hoaxed disinfo that was all the rage in the 1980’s as a serious source of truth, and yet long debunked and long forgotten except by those who wish to sell books based on sensationalism and unproven conspiracies.

Good also went on about the so called Cattle Mutilations in the US in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, in the tens of thousands he says. That research was done by Linda Moulton-Howe, the same person who has also tried to sell the reality of the DRONE HOAX, ALIEN TECHNOLOGY in the form of massive PYRMAIDS buried underneath the tundra in ALASKA, and tons and tons of other absolute guff.

Timothy also went on at length about Jesus being an alien…

Timothy Good also uses the old stalwart of spinning researchers, the UNAMED INSIDER SOURCE, ‘my sources’ he calls them.

Remember Good was the first one who released the Majestic Documents publicly. But he has never named his source for that material. I wonder why not, NOT!

At present, and for some time, Good has been seriously selling the Alien Doctor Abductors Creating Hybrids To Take Over The World Scenario. Which is about as far as you can go in the sensation-seeker stakes.

Now, Timothy must know the controversy which now surrounds David Jacobs and the whole Alien Abduction field, including the research of the late Bud Hopkins. So for him to align himself with all that, and particularly David Jacobs, shows an active agenda and not just some mistaken personal analysis of the situation.

One last thing, in the early BBC interview GOOD is very fulsome, very passionate. In his latest interview on THE UNEXPLAINED he is stilted, giving short two word answers and very unforthcoming. Perhaps he too has stopped believing in his own tales.

And then I thought about Richard Dolan… and how he and Good are so, soooo, similar… in what they do. Mmmm.
