A Network Of Military-Related Programs Is Spreading In Hundreds Of Elementary And Middle Schools.
Gary Ghirardi: We Have To Promote Non-Military Careers For Our Youth ... We sell military service to our youth in the name of defending freedom and developing leadership and good citizenship traits, but the reality of our wars, and nearly all wars historically, are that they are fought to gain advantage over natural resources needed to accumulate wealth for the “national interests” be that petroleum or in contemporary times, the vast list of minerals that construct our industrial and now technological world that support our quality of life standards.... Over the last two decades, with relatively little media coverage or public outcry, the Pentagon’s involvement in schools and students’ lives has grown exponentially... Visit Website ]

The Big Lie That’s Destroying the Wild Horses of the American West
Vickery Eckhoff: At roughly 27 million acres, wild horse herd management areas (HMAs) constitute just 4% of the 750 million acres making up “the West” in the lower 48 states. There are 22 million cattle and sheep across that vast western expanse. ... But the livestock industry considers that 27 million acres with 86,000 wild horses on it (one wild horse per 314 acres) to be overpopulated ... Those wild horses are our horses; that land is their land; moreover, it is ours. Get the livestock off it and let the horses stay. There’s enough water and forage for them to do that, and it costs taxpayers nothing... Visit Website ]

The Imperative of Self-Knowing
Martin LeFevre: Nature abhors a vacuum, and as American culture has degraded beyond recognition and repair, an entire industry of retreat centers, yoga studios, meditation teachers and life coaches has sprung up. They haven't helped. ... The ancient dictum, know yourself, has been mined out by the mindfulness movement. That's allowed the darkest voices in the corporate media to proffer spiritual and philosophical rubbish such as, "Is Self-Awareness a Mirage?" ... The "conscious self" is a euphemism for the supposedly separate self/ego, which is the problem in the first place rather than having some privileged position in the brain. ... And self-knowing isn't a matter of knowledge at all, but of direct perception and insight...

Horizon 2100: The Future Image that We Want
This is the transcript of Cynthia Chung’s lecture: at “Horizon 2100: The Future Image that We Want” delivered in Moscow August 24th, 2021 ... This foundational backbone of any future city will require a means for producing its own clean water and adequate amounts of food, it will require sufficient energy production to power these needs which is reliable and sustainable and it will require a means in changing its present relationship to how we use and dispose of our resources...

The Signs and Teachings of Hawks
Martin LeFevre: A large, brown, stipple-winged hawk takes off from the path ahead of me with some small animal in its mouth. It's near dusk, and the parkland is full of Cooper's hawks. ... Meditation - the spontaneous quieting of thought -- cannot truly begin until the mind/brain lets go of everything. No trick or technique can cause it to do so. Only undivided observation loosens the bonds and ends the grooves of thought. ... Why is it so difficult to let go? What is it about the human mind that keeps us attached to beliefs, people and problems? It appears as though the brain, using thought, is wired to attach itself to things...

Our Gods Have No Heads
Caitlin Johnstone: We’re on a planet-sized haunted hayride to Armageddon, and no one is driving. ... The official elected governments are controlled by corporate and financial plutocratic institutions which have no loyalty to the citizenry of any nation they dominate ... What’s ultimately driving things is not so much the people within those institutions as the institutions themselves, which operate based on motives of profit and growth that are built into them and are entirely divorced from normal human values. ... At some point we’re going to realize that market forces and the profit motive do not have the wisdom to navigate through the existential crises humanity now faces... Visit Website ]

20 Years of Post-9/11 Amnesia
Margaret Kimberley: Memories of the last 20 years are rarely focused on increased state violence and repression in the post-9/11 world. The damage has largely been forgotten. ... The 9/11 event isn’t forgotten, but the near universal approval of the attack on Afghanistan is rarely mentioned now. The corrosive impact of that war on international and domestic law is also swept under the rug. In the past 20 years presidents have claimed the right to kill anyone they claim is a threat, deny the right to civilian trials, and gather and keep electronic information on everyone in the United States. ... These assaults on human rights have been largely forgotten, as the shock of the day turned otherwise intelligent people into supporters of aggression... Visit Website ]

Inside a Timber Sale Scam
George Wuerthner: Amazingly the Forest Service claims that if they don’t log the forest (killing the trees with chain saws), the trees will die from root rot, beetles, and other “calamities” In other words, death by chainsaws is acceptable, but mortality by natural agents is not. ... the real purpose of the “forest health” project is about ...improving the “health” of the timber industry, not the forest. ... After a major fire, there are more fish in streams. More bees. More birds. More fungi. More flowers. More small rodents. More food for elk to grizzlies. ...

The Twenty Year Shadow of 9/11 (Part 2): Why Did Key U.S. Officials Protect the Alleged 9/11 Plotters?
Aaron Good, Ben Howard and Peter Dale Scott: Before examining the details of the 9/11 plot, it is worth noting the extent to which the CIA, FBI, and NSA have acted to protect members of al Qaeda in the past. ... “something apparently was dropped somewhere, and we don’t know where that was.” ... In the early weeks of what would become a decades-long coverup, Wilshire (CIA Bin Laden Issue Station Deputy Chief) was attempting to protect himself and his colleagues by asserting that incompetence, not protection of a joint CIA-Saudi operation, was responsible for the CIA’s failures. .... over the past decade, a number of researchers have identified a pattern of deception and obfuscation... links between Saudi (GID) intelligence agents, Prince Bandar, and the alleged 9/11 hijackers are strongly suggestive of a GID role in the handling of the hijackers...

How George Washington's Vaxxing Won the Revolution
Harvey Wasserman: As war erupted in the 1770s between American Revolutionaries and our British Imperial masters, a smallpox pandemic tore through the colonies. ... The deadly disease killed by the thousands. But Supreme Commander George Washington made inoculation a decisive weapon of war. ... The key insight came from a slave. ... As smallpox ravaged Calvinist Boston, Onesimus explained that injecting a small amount of infected pus under the skin of a healthy human would bring on a mild case of the disease ... and then immunity. ... When he took command of the Revolutionary Army in 1775, smallpox was again ravaging the region .... he demanded mass inoculation of his troops. ... It worked... Visit Website ]

Manufacturing Dystopia: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: We live in a world of manufactured lack, manufactured enemies, manufactured crises and manufactured consent. We’ve had sufficient resources to care for everyone for generations. All our wars are based on lies. All our problems are cooked up by a few psychos with too much power. ... If there were good billionaires they wouldn’t still be billionaires. ...

Climate activists are being killed for trying to save our planet. There is a way to help
Bill McKibben: Last year, there were a record 227 killings globally. It is our duty to keep resisting the insatiable forces that led to their deaths ... The demand for the highest possible profit, the quickest possible timeline, the cheapest possible operation, seems to translate eventually into the understanding, somewhere, that the troublemaker must go. ... When people stand up to block a pipeline, or an illegal mine, or a new plantation slated for an old forest, they are also standing in the way of the activities that threaten us all. ...

The Twenty Year Shadow of 9/11: U.S. Complicity in the Terror Spectacle and the Urgent Need to End It
Aaron Good, Ben Howard and Peter Dale Scott: Outside of the U.S., the consequences of the 2001 terror attacks were even more dramatic. ... The invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq have killed over a million people, displaced tens of millions, and cost trillions of dollars—all with no discernable improvement to U.S. national security. ... Furthermore, both wars were launched on very dubious grounds ... it should be noted that both of the 9/11 Wars were long in planning within the deep state—or if one prefers, within the U.S. foreign policy establishment or foreign policy blob. ... the 9/11 Wars were both prescribed by the U.S. hegemonic grand strategy consensus that was emerging throughout the 1990s...

9/11: Why Americans Were Never Told Why They Were Attacked
Joe Lauria: When Western media discusses terrorism against the West, such as 9/11, the motive is almost always left out, even when the terrorists state they are avenging longstanding Western violence in the Muslim world ... Indirect Western culpability in these terrorist acts is routinely suppressed, let alone evidence of direct Western involvement with terrorism ... The West’s motive for all this meddling is often pinned on oil. But obedience is a strong factor. ... the West ludicrously cloaks its own violence as an effort to spread democracy (which never seems to materialize) or protect civilians (who are endangered instead) ...To admit any connection between the sordid historical record and anti-Western terrorism would be to admit culpability and the price that the West is paying for its dominance...
