The Noble Lies – OK City and 9/11

The Noble Lie is necessary, Plato argues, in order to keep a stable social structure. In Plato’s mind The Noble Lie is a lie that’s fed to the masses to keep them under control and happy with their situation in life.

Plato did not believe most people were smart enough to look after their own and society’s best interest. The few smart people of the world needed to lead the rest of the flock, Plato said. And The Noble Lie had to continue. Continue reading

When the US Government uses violence to solve its problems it teaches others to do the same

“Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government’s policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one’s own bosom and in the surrounding world. Moreover, when the issues at hand seem as perplexing as they often do in the case of this dreadful conflict, we are always on the verge of being mesmerized by uncertainty; but we must move on…” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. Continue reading

CIA run Fake Peace and Nonviolence NGO: “Waging Nonviolence”

“The same non-violence non-profits who take CIA money when they can get it (I’m not talking about ICNC, which just shares an accountant, has parallel goals, and whose president used to work there; ICNC has enough junk bond money to operate on its own) also give non-violent communication trainings and are inserting themselves wherever they can in the OWS movement. In DC, this is particularly worrisome, since the think-tank/lobbying/pro-USG logic is so hegemonic… Continue reading

God and Sandy Hook?

During the last POTUS campaign our school children got one and only one message from our “leaders” and it was the worst message any school age child could ever get from their government, which is instrumental in forming their consciences: “Hey kids, just look at Wall Street and Libya…. Cheaters win and violence works!” Continue reading

Kanjorski and Krauthammer on the 9/15/08 financial collapse

“At 2 minutes, 20 seconds into this C-Span video clip, Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania explains how the Federal Reserve told Congress members about a “tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the United States, to the tune of $550 billion dollars.” According to Kanjorski, this electronic transfer occured over the period of an hour or two… Continue reading

Nathan Schneider – Did the planners of Occupy Wall Street really have a plan?

When Occupy Wall Street and the ensuing Occupy movement captured the world’s attention in the fall of 2011, the world wasn’t exactly sure what hit it. Through a series of up-close portraits of the movement in both planning and execution, this webinar will explore how it has succeeded as well as what its challenges will be in the coming months. Drawing from my experience covering the Occupy movement since the early planning stages, I will focus on the role of strategizing.

The story of Occupy Wall Street, of course, is not solely one about Occupy Wall Street. This was just one among other daring attempts to mount major mobilizations in the United States that season, several of which I was covering concurrently. As the Occupy movement spread, it became ever more clear that what was taking place was one manifestation of an emerging global movement. Now, as the movement enters an election year in the United States, it faces the challenge of launching a cluster of focused, interrelated campaigns, as well as mounting successful mass mobilizations that can change the media narrative and win tangible gains.

Nathan Schneider is an editor of Waging Nonviolence, which he co-founded in 2009 with Eric Stoner and Bryan Farrell. He has written about the Occupy movement for Harper’s, The Nation, and elsewhere.

The REAL Facebook/Twitter Revolution is NOT being televised

If you do a little research, and you get behind the talking points of the mainstream media, you will discover that these so-called Facebook/Twitter “revolutions” are anything but spontaneous. In fact, if you attempt, as I have been doing, to start a TRUE grassroots movement for peace, justice, and truth, it’s actually VERY HARD to do.
