Medicine KILLED Robin Williams

November 13, 2014

Robin_Williams_Canada

It is the leading cause of death.
And now it reportedly killed Robin Williams.

From the official report on Mr. Williams’ death: “The condition [Lewy Body Dementia], coupled with his Parksinon’s and the medication he was taking to combat it, causes hallucinations.”

The key words here are AND THE MEDICATION HE WAS TAKING.

Further, the report says, “Lewy Body Dementia is… exacerbated by Parkinson’s medication.” Exacerbated is a $10 word for “made worse.” People taking the medication experience hallucinations such as “phantom objects, people or animals. The patients often try to converse with the illusions.”

OFTEN… often… This is not only common, it happens OFTEN

And yet the drug is administered and meant to be taken for life. Allopathic medicine, which is the dominant form of treatment currently, tries to match a particular drug for a given disease – no matter who is suffering.  This system is less than a century old.  Yet now, death by medicine and medical treatment is THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA. A conservative estimate puts the annual American deaths by medicine at 783,936. By way of comparison, in 2001 699,697 died of heart disease. 553,251 succumbed to cancer. This puts death by medicine way in the lead.

Now, according to the official report, we can add the beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams to the list of those who suffered an iatrogenic death (iatrogenicadjective: of or relating to illness caused by medical examination or treatment).

I am not saying avoid western allopathic medicine. Just educate yourself and question the doctors at every single step of the process. And always remember that medical treatment is now the leading cause of death in our culture. History shows that once the pharmaceutical industry got hold of, and invested in, medical schools early in the 20th Century, the treatment paradigm shifted from curing disease to keeping people on medication for life and using one method of treatment, one drug, for everyone.  What happened to identifying an illness and curing the patient?  What happened to healing?  Now, to the delight of drug companies, doctors identify an illness, announce that you will suffer for life and need to take pills that can cost hundreds – even thousands – of dollars a month. Drugs are now more expensive than ever before in history, and medicine no longer concentrates on cures and healing, focusing instead on making life-long customers for drug companies. Why did it happen? That is easy to answer: Money. There’s tons of money in keeping people on costly drugs for life, especially when the price of the drug always goes up.  As a middle-aged man myself, just a few years younger than Mr. Williams was at the time of his death, it still shocks medical professionals when they see that I am on no medications. They simply do not understand it. To them, aging is something that in and of itself requires treatment. Chronic treatment. Costly treatment. Permanent treatment. I know people younger than I am who take over eight medications a day. The chances of a bad interaction when taking that many drugs is… 100%.  And forget about “side-effects.”  Any honest medical practitioner will tell you that there is no such thing as a side-effect. That expression is a term of art, a euphemism, to describe anything that a drug does that doctors don’t want it to do. 

KILLER DRUGS APPROVED THEN WITHDRAWN

Think of all the wonder drugs, peddled relentlessly on TV and in magazines, that end up killing people by the thousands. All were first approved by the FDA – which does absolutely no testing, relying on the drug companies for that. Then, when the bodies pile up, the FDA pulls the drug and people say with a note of triumph, “The system works.”
The list of drugs approved then withdrawn from the market when proven to be deadly, is staggering. Sometimes, deadly drugs are yanked from American markets yet still sold over-seas. What is that if not deliberate homicide?
CLICK HERE for another list of 35 drugs horrendous approved then yanked…

The western medical system is fine, a far as I am concerned, for acute issues. A broken leg. Kidney stones. Heart by-pass surgery. You know… plumbing. But the idea that we should all BEWARE of “restless leg syndrome” and then get drugged for life is just bilking people. That is why you see so many drugs advertised on TV. I have talked with doctors who now regularly have to educate patients who come to them demanding a certain drug. One urologist I spoke to said he spent time explaining to a woman who came to see him that she did not in any way, shape, or form need a prescription drug for prostate problems. The woman was his mother-on-law. It may sound like a funny story, but this is what to expect when drugs are marketed directly to people like business markets candy bars. Mass media exists to create a need and they succeed alarmingly well.

WHERE DO THE NEW DISEASES COME FROM?

Many years ago the brilliant comedian Victor Borge joked about his uncle who went bankrupt because “he invented a cure for which there was no disease.” Today, that is no longer a gag. Pharma invents diseases and syndromes that they then claim can be treated by drugs that are, just by coincidence, losing their patent protection. Coming up with a new use for a drug extends the patent and thus its exclusive income stream. Recently the industry suffered a huge loss when India revised its patent system to allow for generics. Is it any wonder then that here, in America, generic prices are now soaring (see link above)?

Most important, as that woman in the urology office shows, when you encounter western medicine these days, you need to do your homework. This happened to me: I have a perfectly nice doctor. He and I talk things over and I command his time, refusing to be seen in just 10 minutes, as the office managers mandate. With my body, I take my time. And his. In spite of this care, even he prescribed a medication for me that, it turned out, is FATAL for people who have a particular digestive problem. I have that digestive problem, and he knew it. But his books said that people who formulate kidney stones should take this drug so he prescribed it. I looked at the information put out by the drug company itself and found the danger. Right there in print. Not from some hysterical “new age” website, but from the drug makes themselves. 
My doctor could have killed me.
And mine would have been yet another iatrogenic death.
Last year, after “routine surgery,” I picked up what is call an “HAI” (Hospital Acquired Infection) that landed me in the hospital, in ever-weakinging condition, for over a week. This is so common that now, under the Affordable Care Act, hospitals are no longer allowed to charge patients for such treatment in an effort to cut down on such infections.
This makes twice, in a single year, that I almost died as a result of medical care. TWICE. In one year.
As I mentioned above, the current allopathic system of medicine is barely a century old – yet systems used successfully for centuries, such as Ayurvedic medicine, are trivialized as “alternative.” Don’t you believe it. There is more to healing than a lifetime of drug taking.

For a look at disease and medicine from another, older perspective, here is a book that dates back to the dawn of the modern pharmaceutical-dominated system.

Don't Say We Were Not Warned

Don’t Say We Were Not Warned

If you are at sea over the recent mid-term elections, I suggest you reach back to 1996 and re-read this book by Al Franken, now Senator Franken, to see the process of the dumbing down of the electorate right back at the start.
As Franken notes – and which should have horrified everyone – the people who get their information from conservative “news” shows think of themselves as highly informed, but they are actually THE MOST IGNORANT of all voters.
Read this again and ask yourself if we were not adequately warned…

What “Outbreak”?

October 24, 2014
This Dimwit Says Ebola Fever Is Obama's Fault. But I Heard Somebody MORE STUPID THAN HE IS!

This Dimwit Says Ebola Fever Is Obama’s Fault. But I Heard Somebody MORE STUPID THAN HE IS!

Well, last night I heard the single most incompetent “expert” talking on the radio about – yes – Ebola Fever.
First off, this twit “debunked” as false the notion that nobody is infected until they get a high fever and stomach pain. He wondered why people make this claim. “Viruses don’t work that way,” he said. He said it is nonsense. OF BLOODY COURSE IT IS NONSENSE! The dope confused CONTAGIOUS with INFECTED. And, yes… those who contract Ebola Fever are not – REPEAT NOT – contagious until they are so deep into the disease that they cannot get around let alone go bowling.

Then this bonehead said this “outbreak” will be like the 1918 flu epidemic which killed AND I QUOTE: “fifty-two hundred million people.” That is 5.2 BILLION people. Neat trick when the world population in 1917 was 1.85 billion (1,849,769,000 to be precise). And look: TWO PEOPLE getting a disease while tending a sick person is not an outbreak. That is it for now… ONLY TWO – 2 – AMERICANS CONTRACTED THIS DISEASE HERE. More Americans have married Elizabeth Taylor.
Do NOT pay any attention to the people who deliberately spread fear and/or who are FUCKING IDIOTS.

And though it may disappoint the more nervous among us, you may want to read THIS ARTICLE which explains why you will not get this disease…

Now: as to that alleged 70% death rate? FORGET IT. That is for a Third World nation ravaged by war without adequate food and water – with one doctor per 200,000 people. IN AMERICA and other “modern” nations – for a person with adequate hydration and diet the death rate of this disease is 20%.

Your parents or grandparents knew what an outbreak REALLY was. They faced polio every goddamn year, and smallpox and diptheria and waves of both influenza and pneumonia (before we had any antibiotics!) without shitting their pants like hysterical babies. So if they could deal with that, YOU can deal with a new disease that has so far hit only TWO Americans. Good grief, FLU will kill 45,000 Americans this year. Does that worry you? Did you even bother to get a flu shot?

Do NOT give in to fear and fear mongers. Using fear is nothing new. The TV “news” people use fear to boost their ratings and make more money. Fear is their stock-in-trade. And they spread it rich and thick like manner  in a Iowa cornfield. They scare you out of greed and in order to control you. Apparently, it works.
An excellent book was written about this back in 1919 – you know, back after 5.2 billion people died… Ha! The book has been reissued and I wrote the all-new foreword. I recommend it. Click the image to read about it.

LATE NEWS: One of only TWO people to contract Ebola Fever in the USA is just fine! Read about it HERE.
As I noted in above, in a modern culture not ravaged by war and pestilence, Ebola Fever has an 80% survival rate.
 
Dallas nurse Nina Pham is one of only TWO people to contract the disease in the USA yet people are scared to death. This is insanity in action.

Judge harshly ANYONE you know who fears Ebola Fever in the USA. People THAT easily frightened are easily manipulated and they are extremely dangerous.

The REAL Danger To America… It’s NOT Ebola Fever

October 6, 2014

JustFollowingOrders

You know what is more dangerous to the American people than Ebola Fever? The low-information voter. And this is not a right v. left thing. Dopes who vote populate all parts of the political spectrum. When Mr. Obama was first running for president, NPR interviewed a young Black woman. She said she supported Obama. Why? Because, she said, he fought his way up from the streets of Chicago and survived life in the gangs. Yes, she really said it.
Then there are the ignorant people who whine about China owning most of our nation’s debt. And they can call it in any time to bankrupt us. How dire! But the fact is that China holds a mere 8% of our debt and they cannot just call in the debt, they have to wait for the bonds to mature, which is more than the low-informtion voter has done… As to fearing that China will take over our country, well Americans ourselves hold 32% of the debt. Does that mean we, the people, will take over the government?
 The problem with low-information, is that people fill that vacuum with total bullshit that sounds good to them. They fear China, so China becomes a looming threat. I find this so pathetic.
On the other end on the far right, look at the number of conservatives who are mobilizing to prevent Pres. Obama from winning a third term. They seriously believe that he is running for reelection. There is nobody lower on the low-information scale than an American who does not even know how the constitution works. The right wingers GASPED in horror when the conservative dolt Rafael “Teddy” Cruze, an American senator who emigrated from Canada, told a group recently that the senate democrats were about to repeal the first amendment. These ideological idiots BELIEVED it. Because they wanted to. Look how many of the righties believe that unemployment is at its highest, the deficit is soaring, and America is about to become a muslim nation. FOX “news” even did a segment last week praising G. W. Bush for his handling of Iraq! They actually believe this stuff. And they are terrified, as all conservatives today are. Where are the REAL conservatives of yesteryear? How long must we suffer the backward fools who think that science and facts are trumped by the muddy thinking they call “common sense”? Get a load of this:
Today, on Facebook, I heard from someone who said of the choice he would make in the next presidential election: “I would vote for Colin Powell in an instant.”
I asked him straight out how anyone could support the man who deliberately went to the United Nations and lied about fake WMD and who still defends that action AND who in his own self-serving book, admits to war crimes. As I do here, I provided him with links to back up both of my statements.
You know what this person’s answer to me was? How he justified what Powell did at the UN? He said this:

“Colin Powell did what he was told to do by the President and Vice President.” That is what he said…

POWELL WAS ONLY FOLLOWING ORDERS?????? This is the best he could whip up to defend a man responsible for hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of deaths and maimings? HE WAS ONLY FOLLOWING ORDERS? And THAT is what he calls presidential material? A military man who never heard of goddamn Nuremberg? Holy shit!!

Personally, I would prefer Ebola Fever to these people. Any virus, even the hideous 1918 Flu epidemic which hit almost 30% of all Americans, runs its course. But alas, the low-information jerks are here to stay and they are messing up the whole world…

…One stupid, irresponsible idiotic vote at a time.

The Most Irresponsible President EVER…

September 15, 2014

So now high ranking members of the American government have gone into weeping hysterics over a group called ISIS.
This is a group of radicals about half the size of the NY Police Department who are waging many wars on many fronts and getting beaten badly by the Kurds. They have almost zero chance of success. But…
This splinter group committed some atrocities on video and now we must launch a war against them.
What ISIS needs to succeed is a stream of new recruits. And having the USA as their enemy will be the greatest recruiting tool since UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU!
The videos of some beheadings sent American policy makers into fear and anger. And that is NOT the time to make a decision. But they did, so now…
We get all the usual blather about how ISIS is the greatest threat EVER to the United States, just like the Soviets were and the “Red” Chinese were and the Viet Cong were, you get the drill. The Home of the Brave is always scared shitless about some group or other.
But who is to blame NOW? At whose feet do we lay the blame for the ISIS wars? That’s easy: George W. Bush is to blame. He destabilized the area with a needless war because God told him to do it…  Great… a religious nut launches a war and Americans blame other religious nuts for it.
Bush’s divine war against Iraq all but gave the world a written guarantee that Shia, Sunni and Kurds would butt heads on the battlefield, but that was not enough for Bush. Like the overgrown mama’s boy that he is, Bush had to appear macho to the world so… THE IDIOT ACTUALLY – LITERALLY! - ASKED FOR THIS! Does nobody in the rah-rah corporate media remember Bush’s taunting challenge to the various groups in Iraq?:

“There are some who, uh, feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is: bring ‘em on. We got the force necessary to deal with the security situation.”  July 2, 2013

“BRING ‘EM ON” 

Remember that? “BRING ‘EM ON”…
The idiot actually said it. He TOLD them to do it. In case you missed it, take a look above at the video.

So now they are bringing it on and nobody is mentioning that THE RELIGIOUS IDIOT, THE DRY DRUNK IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THE MAMA’S BOY NAMED GEORGE W. BUSH TOLD THEM TO DO IT.

And now that the whole Middle East is under siege, now that American politicians have something more scary than Ebola Fever or Mexican children to scream and swoon over as they drain the treasury, now that the USA is going to launch a war which will make America itself a legitimate target… Bush goes off painting pictures of his toes in the bathtub… Swell.

A Bush Masterpiece...

A Bush Masterpiece…

Way to go, Georgie.
You managed to fuck up the whole world and nobody remembers that 

YOU ASKED FOR IT!

Ebola Gonna Git You!!!! BE AFRAID!!!

ABC NEWS asks, “What Happens Once Ebola Patients Arrive in the US?”
Why do the TV news people ask this when the answer they will sell us is: THEN WE ALL DIE A MISERABLE DEATH!!! They live to make people afraid so we will a) keep watching and b) lose the ability to think clearly. FEAR puts humans in “fight/flight” mode and that eliminates thinking. Blood actually LEAVES the brain and goes to the legs. Then, when you are properly frightened, they pitch ads at you that also stimulate fears but tell you what to buy to fight back… All their ads are based on raising a fear and then offering a solution. Capitalism literally depends on fear. That is the only way they can sell you things you do not need. They do it out of pure, unmitigated greed.

Think back over the things that network news has told us to fear, just going back as recently as Y2K. Never mind the earlier bizarre notion that Russia wanted to take over America (or Germany did, or Japan did, or China now does… and what would they do with us once they had us?) and forget the odd thought that we – the only nation to detonate nukes in war – were going to get hit by nukes… DUCK AND COVER!!!! IT’S TROTSKY!!!! Remember SWINE FLU?
Fear is their stock in trade and now it is Ebola they will get you to fear. Let it go. The only thing we have to fear is… NETWORK NEWS PEOPLE. And of course, Sharia Law which is going to be in the Constitution once the democrats eliminate the first amendment… right? I saw it on TV so it must be true…

I wrote the introduction to a 1919 book on FEAR. It is discouraging to note that nothing changes. UNMASKING FEAR goes into the ways in which fear gobbles people up. And it was written before our 24 hour mass media went into the full-time SCARE THE HELL OUT OF EVERYONE business.

“SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE? IT’S IN THE BIBLE!”

July 2, 2014

Given the recent theocratic decision of the Supreme Court, I thought I would revisit a post of mine from a couple of years ago…

It is the religious right-wing loud mouths who always can be counted upon to a) demand that we obey the Holy Bible and b) make the claim that there is no such thing as separation of Church & State in America because those words are not in the Constitution. Never mind that this separation was primary on the minds of those who wrote the Constitution. Forget that this separation is what made the United States of America absolutely unique in the history of Western “civilization.” And the hell with the facts that the United States Supreme Court has consistently held that such a separation exists. Throw all that away if you wish.  Let us see what the Bible itself has to say on the subject:

As Moses is ready to die and the Israelites prepare to enter the Promised Land, Moses grows concerned that there the tribes have no leader to keep the people from anarchy. So, being Moses, he consults God. Here is what happens in the King James Version of the Holy Bible:

Numbers, 27:15-23

And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,

Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,

Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;

And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.

And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.

And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:

And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

Do you get what happened? Moses puts Joshua in charge of the people and has Aaron’s son Eleazar in charge of the priesthood. Moses and, more to the point, GOD ALMIGHTY have vested two separate people with the powers of Church & State. It is right there in the Good Book.  Joshua is in charge of the people and Eleazar is in charge of tending into God’s judgment. It’s all there in black and white.

As long as the religious literalists insist that the Bible is a history book, and as long as they insist that it is God’s “divine plan” for humanity, silly claims but they make them nonetheless, then we see by example that God wants the power of the state separated from the power of the religious establishment. There is no getting around it.
—–
Further driving the point home is 1 Samuel, 13:8-14 where King Saul, tired of waiting for the arrival of Samuel the priest, makes his own burnt offering. When Samuel arrives all hell breaks loose. Why? Because Saul has usurped the power of the clergy and thus violated the biblical separation of Church & State. Can it be any more clear?

Stop Improving Things!

March 8, 2014

THIS IS IMPORTANT

Has it occurred to you yet that, ideologies aside, ALL the troubles of humanity since the dawn of what we call civilization have been caused by people trying to improve things? We hate the dark, so we invent candles, which lead to the improvement called electric lights, which pollute the air and surround us with magnetic radiation and then nuclear plants and THREE MILE ISLAND! FUKUSHIMA! Why? All because we are the ONLY ANIMALS ON EARTH who refuse to accept that the world gets dark at night. So now we have 24 hour light. Was it worth it?

Why does the human animal have to improve the world when all other animals live in it the way it is, not the way they think it should be? I agree with those who say that civilization is a HUGE mistake. There is nothing that is wrong with the world now that PEOPLE didn’t cause in an attempt to improve the world. Think about it. No other animals have screwed things up making life “better” or wasted any time arguing about how to do it. Only humanity.

All our troubles have come from people who honestly thought they were making things better. That is the basis of all political arguments: who has the BEST way to make things better. We had things in perfect order and harmony, like all other creatures on the earth! Only WE had to improve things….

I don’t care a whit if you are RIGHT or LEFT or CENTER. All your proposals to improve things ever since the dawn of time have resulted in the world the way it is now. So why should we turn to the very process which screwed things up… to fix things? We had life very good before the improvements. We had food growing out of the ground. We lived together. But then people invented money and then greed took over. Even Chimps, as new studies show, share what they have with other chimps. Why are we not as smart as a chimp? All the talk about equitable distribution of wealth, pro and con, misses the point: WE DON’T NEED ANY WEALTH! We had everything, just as the lion or the hippo or the dolphin has everything. We did live in the same world as they. Do they slave away at a job they hate? Do they envy people who amass more THINGS than they do? No! So why do we? BECAUSE PEOPLE TRIED TO IMPROVE THINGS. Now we waste time and energy repairing the improvements. Every situation that politicians talk about fixing is something that people broke in the first place. What did the Rabbi Jesus say? “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Old Jesus was describing the natural order of things. We had everything we needed at the dawn of humanity. But along come people with ways to MAKE THINGS EASIER and they screwed it all up. I have met people who worked their asses off trying to find an easy way to get what they want. But they don’t even know WHY THEY WANTED THAT in the first place?

The GARDEN OF EDEN is a symbol of the perfection we lived in before we tried to improve things. Humanity collapses once we OPEN OUR EYES TO IMPROVEMENTS. “I cannot eat from this tree? Ok. I WILL eat from it and see what happens.” Modern civilization is what happened. The myth of the Hebrews bears a strikingly important message about improving things. Do the improvements EVER whorl out? Look at the world around you and answer that for yourself. It has nothing to do with CONSERVATIVE or PROGRESSIVE. Both positions are fighting over who has the best way to improve things when… WE SHOULD NOT HAVE IMPROVED THINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE! It is the improvements that we now fight over improving. This is what Stanley Kubrick meant with his famous JUMP CUT in 2001: A Space Odyssey:

We have NOT changed, just our technology has changed. We are STILL AT THE DAWN OF MAN, even today. All that has actually changed are the tools. And the problems those tools gave us. Such as… WAR.
It is worth noting that in 2001: ASO, technology – that is, improvement – is intimately linked with death and murder. So much so that the first “machine” is used by the proto-human not just to kill for food, but to commit the first murder (Cain/Abel), and by the end of the film a machine turns to murdering people. The machine, like Pinocchio before him, has indeed “become” human.

We do not need to fix the problems caused by all the improvements in the world, we need to get AROUND the problems to return to a form of existence without the things we did to rectify things. Try letting your home get dark at night. Try living in harmony with nature. This is hard when you have to commute 2 hours a day, or pay out thousands of dollars a month just to survive. I know. HERE IS A TRUE STORY:

A close friend of mine was THE BIGGEST STAR IN SHOW BUSINESS in the early 1960s. He had everything that people claim to desire. He was young, not yet 25, rich, had millions of dollars, and he was quite famous. Then something happened in the world and his career ended LITERALLY OVER NIGHT. Soon he descended into drugs and self-destruction. Knowing this was killing him, he GAVE AWAY ALL HIS MONEY and MOST OF HIS BELONGINGS. He kept a VW mini-bus (it WAS the Sixties, after all) and a HUGE tent. He was going to drive from Los Angeles to Maine and live in the tent. He would finance the drive across country by playing music in bars and restaurants across the country. He used the name Johnny Sunday. So before he did this, he said farewell to friends. One friend, a fabulously wealthy Hollywood producer, listened to his plans and said, “Wow. Just drive off and live in a tent in the woods… I sure wish I could afford to do that.” AFFORD TO DO THAT?!?!?! My friend did that because he HAD NO DAMN MONEY AT ALL! He had stripped his life down to the bare essentials and went off to experience existence as naturally as he could in this insane world. But his friend COULD NOT AFFORD TO DO THAT! So I ask you, did they live in the same world? Apparently not. My friend’s eyes opened and he saw that the artificial life we have created is what was killing him. His producer buddy did not. And never did. My friend was later considered a mystic, at best, a fucking nut at worst. But the people who had so much, and so deeply bought into the civilized world ENVIED HIM. Tom Hanks paid him enough to buy a house in Florida just for the rights to his story, which Hanks never filmed. I was with him when actor John Goodman said he simply had to learn the “secret” of life from him – Goodman never ever spoke to him about anything after that meeting. We get what we are trained to want and then what do we have? Nothing half as good as the lion or the hippo or the dolphin. Don’t worry about “which side” has the best ideas for fixing things. NONE OF THEM DO. Malcolm Forbes was just as wrong as Karl Marx.

Look at the news: it is filled with people ARGUING about fixing things that people ruined in the first place. True change and peace will not come from fixing society. It will come from inside. It will come when you see that the artificial environment we created is killing you. You say I am wrong? I am using MODERN TECHNOLOGY to communicate with you, so I am a hypocrite? Ha! I would not NEED to use this technology had people not improved things! I am using the very mistake we have made to POINT OUT THE MISTAKES. Most of you will resist this knowledge. Just like the Hollywood producer I mentioned above. Some of you will react violently to what I say. This is what PSYCHIATRISTS (and we are the ONLY animals who need them!) call “A Significant Reaction.” It signifies something about the way you see the world. USE IT!  EXAMINE HOW YOU SEE THINGS!  You are born into a false reality and trained from childhood to accept it as though it were natural. But it is hurting you. STRESS? ANXIETY? FEAR? WORRY? You were not meant to suffer these ills. CIVILIZATION imposed them upon you. And now the mere attempt to fix these problems CREATES THE STRESS AND FEAR AND WORRY. But we call it POLITICS.

You do not need to fix society to have the real power that awaits you when you see what life REALLY is. You already have the power. Many people do not even know the power they have – NATURALLY! – in their own brain and mind.  I know what I can and cannot do AS A HUMAN BEING. I have written about it in this book:

Say Good-Bye To FEAR!

December 23, 2013

I decided to leave this post up for so long because in the time since I posted it, many hundreds of people have come here to see it. Some have bought the book UNMASKING FEAR and written to me about it. I will have a new post soon, but I think this post is extremely important, especially in the climate of fear deliberately being generated these days. Thank you for your interest.

“I am more afraid of the NSA than I am of terrorists,” said a local morning AM radio talker here in NYC. People called in to say that they to were living in fear of the American/Obama secret police state.
Other New Yorkers have been flooding the NY Times comment sections with statements attesting to their fear that under the new mayor crime will run riot and people will be murdered by the car-load. People in my community have expressed fear that soon crime and violence will be out of control in New York.  Why is fear prevalent across the land? Who did this? Why did they do it?

Where does this come from?
It is deliberately implanted in the psyche by the “news” media. Why? To make money. Fear sells. With fear, people tune in to the TV/Radio news shows to see what is going to happen. Fear is the only thing the media has to sell. Look at the flood of TV ads and what they really sell: FEAR that your body stinks. FEAR that you have last year’s automobile/clothing styles/hair style/music and people are laughing at you. FEAR that you will lose your job. FEAR that you are getting older. FEAR that your money will soon be worthless (buy gold!!!!!). FEAR that your kids are on drugs. FEAR that you are too fat. FEAR that you may have a cold (oh, heaven forbid). FEAR of Muslims. FEAR that the stock market is rising and you are not in on it! FEAR that people don’t like you. FEAR that your children are failing in school… At the heart of advertising is always fear. I am sure that you can come up with more examples.

We all know that whole TV channels are dedicated to inciting fear. Usually, they are called “news” channels but take a look at them with this new lens. Look for the fear they promulgate. CRIME! INFLATION! THE FED! CONSERVATIVES! LIBERALS! WELFARE MOTHERS!!!! TERRORISTS (remember when it was COMMUNISTS? Same tune, different generation…)!!! It is what psychiatrists call “crazy-making” and we not only invite it into our homes, WE PAY FOR IT!  We put out cold hard cash to watch programs that do nothing but scare us. Why do we do that? It makes no sense. Or… does it? Let’s see…

Fear in human beings triggers the Fight/Flight response. This is a very atavistic sensation and it is cut and dried: you fight or you run. That is it. So it precludes THINKING. When your thinking is shut down, you are a prime target for marketers who will sell you anything they want to sell you. And they know it. Of the several methods use by advertisers, one of the most common used to be called “The Bandwagon.” With this technique, you are told “everyone else is doing it, why aren’t you?” So at the heart of this is the fear that you are left out. That was a subtle approach compared to today’s advertising.  How many people do you know who live in an almost constant state of anxiety and fear? And look what they fear: it is almost ALWAYS related to the big news headlines. Then that fear passes and – as if by magic – a new fear arises.

Because so many highly-paid people work full-time at engendering fear in the population, fear must be overcome. By overcoming fear we remove that arrow from their quiver. How do we overcome fear? Here are two things that will help. FIrst is a talk by the brilliant Ajahn Brahm. I urge you to take an hour to listen and absorb his message (of course, one of the biggest fears people have is that they just have no time. Well, make the time. See this instead of a TV show you habitually look at. This will reward you amply.)

In addition to the talk by Ajahn Brahm, I urge you to read this book from 1919, a time of great fear in the land…

UNMASKING FEAR is a short read (with a new set of introductions I wrote) but a powerful book. Only when we, as a society, reject fear will we be free and fully in control of our lives. Stop running from crisis to crisis! Start the new year with the best gift ever: Freedom From Fear!

Remember the words of President Roosevelt:
