Country Joe and the Fish at Woodstock: “Fixin’ to Die Rag”

March 29th, 2011

“Fixin’ to Die Rag” is one of the best anti-war songs of the period. It’s sad, but we seem to have forgotten all the lessons of the Viet Nam War, and we’re right back where we started–doing it again in Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya and places we don’t even know about because the “national security state” doesn’t tell us. Our job is just to pay for covert action, not ask questions.

History could be so valuable if we would only learn from it, but we never do. Like Country Joe says, Give me an “F…., etc”!

Like Joe, that’s about all I can say to sum up these issues.

 “You hyphenated me, asshole!”
 
I came across an interesting image on facebook today. It was a picture of a hideous looking eagle with an American Flag waving over its eye, and the creator of the picture had captioned it,

Fact: No British-Americans signed the Declaration of Independence! They were AMERICANS! Take your hyphenated-butt back to your mutherland!

Murder, Inc. Your Tax Dollars At Work:

March 22nd, 2011

Gul Mudin, a farmer's son and civilian, was murdered by US soldiers on Jan. 15, 2010

Sure the US government mouthpieces are condemning the photos as “horrific,” but these soldiers were brainwashed (trained) to kill with no remorse. Why are we surprised then when they kill with no remorse?

Does this smiling killer appear to consider his victim a human being? It doesn’t appear that way to me. Dehumanizing the enemy is a standard aspect of formal military brainwashing. This is what “be[ing] all you can be” involves. This dead man, a civilian, is the son of a farmer.

Terence McKenna – Schizophrenic or Shamanic?

March 21st, 2011

Terence Mckenna presents his view on how we define the mentally ill because we haven’t got any place in our society to put these strange perceptions of reality that some people experience. He says we should not fear these states but be confident and turn them into some sort of planetary worldview. The video speaks for itself.

Koyaanisqatsi (Life Out of Balance) 1982 Original Movie

March 20th, 2011

Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi Indian word that means “life out of balance.”

It refers, of course, to us and the supposed “civilization” we have created.

Are we civilized or are we insane?

An art-house circuit sensation, this feature-length documentary is visually arresting and possesses a clear, pro-environmental stance. Koyaanisqatsi is composed of nature imagery, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, juxtaposed with footage of humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet. The message of director Godfrey Reggio is clear: humans are destroying the planet, and all of human progress is pointlessly foolish.
