    in a situation of operational scarcity…with increasing, human eliminating technology and outsourcing,..those who have money-power or a niche in the society as it is,.as the winners, will protect and consolidate their position-winnings, while the losers, who have become redundant, are abandoned to forms of slavery and death…that’s how it is…the new situation will be led by the two almost demonic women, hillary and may…all we can do is cry out, like josef conrad at the end of ‘heart of darkness’….’the horror! the horror!

    • Great comment. Do not despair Peter ~ TV-land is bot-central, the real humans have evaded capture and are working diligently, creatively and resourcefully.

      Watch the quantized void of empty space…reanimate irresistably…and be amazed; evolutionary inter-being is the emergent destination, located deep in the soul of life itself.

  7. Bravo Chris!!

    We are human beings first! The world desperately needs a reformed, revamped, revised, reinvented….REDISCOVERED….America. Full stop, period.

    Automated corporate totalitarianism is driving us to extinction. The PNAC scam is the most lethal planetary virus ever unleashed, but we have the antidote: evolutionary (feminist) and ethnic intelligence. We have the right solutions and the ecosystemic recipes for success. Lets think about them, talk about the way they work, demonstrate their efficacy!

    We still refer to ‘grass roots;’ but all true roots need healthy, bio-diverse soil. What is soil? It is a thriving ecological community that is mutually and symbiotically sustaining. Real life, is the best metaphor for life-reality ~ not machine artefacts.

    We need ethical entrepreneurship, institutions & technology in the service of humanity, not vice versa in the form of ersatz ‘legal’ entities & capitalist tyrannies; the creative vehicles of liberty and light are our most authentic moral agencies, the fundamental instruments of coherent existence, we can all embrace, in good conscience ~ because they are our deepest truths.

    Let the smart-boys have their cunning space-toys; “ok Johnny and Sam, off you run now to play in the rings of Saturn and spin with the satellites of Jupiter; but Earth-ground zero where our sacred life is ~ that must be off limits…y’all hear me…? Sanctity is what sustains us. So remember, no wholesome lunch, no launch. Get it?”

  8. Please, where does the protest start? Time? What should people bring with them? How to get there? I can’t watch a 30 minute video. Am I missing the protest information on this site? Heeellllp!!
