Project For A New Autonomous Millennia



The current impending crisis of civilisation can possibly be summed up as a looming conflict to decide the shape of society for the next period of human history.  What began as a purely resource driven conflict of Imperial expansion is now entering a dangerous new phase of ideological conflict that pits conflicting visions of the future of how human society is to be organised against each other.
There are I believe three distinct ideologies that can now be seen at play in this great conflict.  Ironically they all are actually in agreement on one level at their core.  They all suppose that the concept of the Nation State that most of us have grown up with and that has held sway on the planet for the past 120 years or so is over.  And although they may not realise it they are actually all pushing us into a future that regardless of who wins will see the vast majority of current national borders doomed to disappear. 


Borders that have never really stayed static since the Treaty of Versailles that created most of them anyhow but now I believe we are entering the final death throws of the modern Nation State.  It is finished, over and nothing can or will be done to save that concept.  Just as surely as the empires and kingdoms of Europe collapsed and then were ultimately swept away in the fires of World War 1 we are now entering a similar phase for the demise of the Nation State.  So I think at this critical cross roads in human history we should pause and look closely at the ideologies that loom before us as the possible outcomes or endgames out the other end of such a great upheaval. 

The first of these great ideologies is currently the one with the most power.  This first ideology is the one that began the destruction of the nation state and triggered the entire crisis as they drove the world forward to achieve their goal of shaping the world to their vision.  This ideology is known as many things by different people but regardless of the terminology used to describe it; it is the same function that people are trying to describe. It is sometimes known as the New World Order or the Global Banking Cartel or just the proponents of the economic system of Globalisation.
This ideologies vision is for super concentration of power into a unified world government. Under this government the nation states will have been dissolved replaced by a few super regions for ease of management of the system. These regions will be trading super blocs each united with their own single currencies and will have names like the European Union, the African Union, the North American Union etc. 


This future will also be a completely dystopian nightmare.  The centralised government will not be some humane peace bringing entity that represents the people and will indeed turn the whole world into a giant super factory where the people are nothing more than the cattle to facilitate the continued running and production of the machine.  No thought or care of traditional tribal or cultural affiliations of the people will be considered as they are all lumped into their respective super regions and brought under the heel of the oppressive world government that will most likely have its centre located in the city of New York


 In short individualism in this future will be dead.  The World Government will unroll a completely totalitarian police state to maintain the function of the great factory and the planet will groan under a great toil much as the subjects of Egypt or Rome did in times gone past.  In short it will be the One World Empire and its beneficiaries will be but a few at the expense of the entire planet.


Now obviously most people would never agree to entering into such a future willingly so the architects of this ideology destroyed the nation state first by triggering a new global war and then by annihilating the worlds economies brining about the disintegration of entire countries and now as the pace of the plan picks up speed the whole world enters into its final phase of collapse.  And indeed it was this act that has allowed for the window of opportunity for other competing ideologies to arise.  As faced with a total system wide shut down other ‘revolutionaries’ that have been around for an equal amount of time have seized the opportunity to enter the fray and stand opposed to the Globalists.


The next of the ideologies vying for their vision of the future to come to pass is in some way directly linked to the previous one.  For I believe it has only gained traction and been allowed to gain any popularity due to some very malicious and opportunistic manipulation by the previous group.  However it has existed in its own right for some time so may be listed as a separate entity although more often than not I think it is being controlled by the Globalists to further their own ends. 


This ideology is the one of the Theocrats.  A small number of radicals with religious bent want to see a Theocracy established on earth. It is almost exclusively coming from the ranks of the so called Abrahamic faiths.  And its proponents want to see an end to the nation state and the beginning of some thousand year religious empire that rules the world with the one ‘true’ god at its head.  Ironically the Theocrats are at war internally as well as with the other two ideologies as the three heads of the Abrahamic faiths are at war with each other over this vision. 


The Christians want to see the establishment of some Christian Kingdom on Earth.  This belief is primarily coming from the radicals of the so called Evangelical movement centred in the current United States of America.  The Muslims want to see the establishment of a new Islamic Caliphate.  This belief is primarily being pushed by Wahabi and Salafi Sunnis, especially of the Saudi Arabian peninsula, at the expense of Shia and other Islamic sects who are more nationalist in their views.  And finally the Theocrats of the Jews want to see the establishment of an Eretz Yisrael Ha-Shlema or Greater Israel from which to dominate the world.  Again this comes from only a few minority movements within Judaism primarily the more hardcore Zionist and settler elements. 


Now these radicals are usually sidelined by the greater populations they inhabit however the Globalists have greatly increased their hand as they have used them as a weapon against the whole world.  Needing to sow the seeds of chaos and destruction in order to begin the push for a new world and to justify the many invasions that would be necessary to commence their plans they required groups to carry out their false flag terror attacks against their own populations.  So they needed to find people motivated enough that they could either convince to attack the “Homeland” in order to justify the many draconian steps they have subsequently taken, or who would be willing to preach total obedience to the next stages of the roll out of Globalisation. 


Primarily they used Islamists to attack targets in America and Europe and Evangelicals to preach the obedience.  Extreme Zionists have also proved useful for swaying populations as the plan has unfolded.  So this ideology and the ideology of the Globalists are very tightly intermingled.  Although once the Globalists achieve their goals it is not hard to suppose they will then mercilessly cut loose their Theocrat pawns and crush them completely. 


However over the years of using them and building them up for their purposes they have also inadvertently strengthened them and their ideas in some circles.  So it is possible were the Globalists to fail to step into the breach left after the collapse of the current world that the Theocrats could attempt to take the opportunity to fill the void themselves. 


This would be as equally a horrid vision for the future as anything the Globalists could ever serve us.  For given their complete mutual exclusion of the other depending on whichever one established itself as the dominant world power the other two Theocracies (and indeed anyone who did not ‘convert’) would have to be exterminated.  A great global genocide would undoubtedly be the outcome if the Theocrats are allowed to win the great struggle.


And so finally that brings us to the last of the great competing ideologies.  The one that is of personal favour to my heart and I think the true hope of a ‘liberated’ humanity going into the future.  It is not a unified ideology as many will point out but that is the essence of it.  It is not some horrendous fascist vision for all. 


However as the crisis gets more compounded and a great revolution seems inevitable it is becoming somewhat more unified in its scope drawing together very odd bedfellows in the face of the common horrific enemy.  It is an ideology of personal human liberation that is seeing ‘leftists’, ‘rightists’ ‘anarchists’ and ‘libertarians’ all realizing the common ground they have with each other and the need to confront the horror of Globalisation before it is too late for us all. 


Indeed its seeds of unity were in what has been popularly termed the ‘anti-Globalisation’ movement.  However it is a much stronger movement now than one that is just in opposition to something and has some very real solutions that we can all begin taking immediately in order to stave off the impending disaster. 


Ironically as a movement it too has reached a point of realization that the deconstruction of the nation state is probably the only way forward at this point.  However this ideology is not calling for a super concentration of power to rule the world from a single point as its replacement.  In fact it is calling for the opposite. A total decentralisation of the world. A complete retreat from the concept of big centralized governments continuously trapped in their fake choices of this party or that, that all stem from the same well spring of corporate control anyway.


 Many communities becoming locally self sufficient and living in peace with their neighboring communities is the vision offered by this ideology. An autonomy and sovereignty for many communities across the globe.  An event that would see potentially thousands of independent ‘statelets’ (although they will more be Communities) existing around the globe. 


A very practical example of the need for this decentralization and self sufficiency was recently seen in the case of the Icelandic Volcano.  An event that in the madness of the Globalised economy has seen Kenyan farmers suffering massive losses as their reliance on selling goods into the European market was curtailed during the air space shut down. 


Now of course world trade would still be something that would exist in a post Globalist world however the madness of the current set up of concentrations of production in the third world using basically slave labor would be gone.  Something that would allow for a much stronger economy in the face of unexpected natural disasters.  Self sufficient Kenyan farmers may still sell on products to Europe but losing their European market would not see them starve.  Which is currently the disaster they face in the Globalised system.


This ideology of self sufficiency and autonomy from draconian state rule has grown over time. From the Anarchists of the turn of the 19th century, up to the Leftists of the Psychedelic underground of the 1960’s and in recent time as the Anti-Globalisation movement picked up pace at the end of the 20th Century we’ve seen the Rightists of the so called Libertarian or classical Conservative movement begin to see things from this light as well.  An astounding bridge between what could be competing ideologies that has seen a total movement for human liberation build that now spans all walks of political perception.


  This is what has led to our current times where a traditionally ‘Leftist’ Anarchist on the streets of Athens is now calling for almost the same thing that a ‘Rightist’ Tea Party activist in the United States is calling for, albeit with a few different terminologies to describe their vision of the future.  Language aside however it is clear they are working towards a very similar vision of the future.  And it is this convergence of the Left and Right in the Revolution against the Globalists that is terrifying them at the moment.


And it has reached a moment of outright revolution now just as it did in the 1960’s.  I hope this time however the revolution will not be crushed as it was the last time.  Of course a sustained assault has commenced in America against the most active voice of the revolution there the so called Tea Party.  And an attempt to co-opt the Tea Party back into somehow being an organ of the Republican Party has begun but I think it will ultimately be doomed to failure.


An attempt to divide and conquer has also begun to attempt to resow discord amongst the left and right organs of the revolution but that too can be overcome by careful analysis of the situation.  So called Leftists should not become alarmed or angry at images like those we saw in the past few weeks of heavily armed Militia men standing on the steps of State Capitol buildings across the United States calling for the sovereignty of individual citizens and the upholding of constitutional human rights. 


For this is no different than the images we saw in the 1960’s of the darlings of the Left at the time, the so called Black Panthers, standing heavily armed on the steps of court houses across the country calling for an almost identical thing.


  We should take comfort that at least the Revolution has finally arrived. 


How these momentous events can bear relevance to an Australian audience will be the important work for the coming months.  On a whole Australians have failed miserably to ‘bring the war home’ when it comes to the anti war movement and any attempts to shut down our mad push to be a part of the imperialist Globalist invasions of the past 9 years.  If outright revolution breaks out in the US and or Europe in the coming months then we must not make the same mistake and must ensure that we ‘bring the revolution home’.


 And the best way of doing that is to begin preparing our communities for complete autonomy from anything that exists in Canberra.  Canberra, like Washington DC in the US, is now a complete irrelevancy.  Here in Australia the Psychedelic underground has spent the last 15 years experimenting heavily with the so called Temporary Autonomous Zone.  Well now all those years of practice and skill sets can be put to use as we enter the next phase. I believe the time for the Permanent Autonomous Zone has arrived.


There are examples and models of PAZ’s that currently exist around the world that we can look to for inspiration in this work.  One of note of course is the Christiania community that exists in Copenhagen in Denmark. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freetown_Christiania)


And a community that has successfully withdrawn and claimed its sovereignty from the illegal occupational government in Canberra here in Australia is of course the Hutt River Principality. (http://www.principality-hutt-river.com/)


  These examples and many more show that with a bit of hard work it will be possible for us to decouple from the deranged Globalist controlled parties that currently inhabit Canberra and are driving Australia to its doom.  Changing anything from now on ‘at the ballot box’ will be impossible as it is now more than clear that there is in fact no valid opposition left in the parody of a Westminster system that remains in Canberra at the moment.  Only by declaring for our personal communities self sovereignty, and where the resource allows it, complete autonomy from the Federation of Australia and its governing Laberal Party can we begin to make a forward momentum for the freedom of the species.


Of course it will be important in a colonised country such as Australia that we also turn to the indigenous, the original inhabitants of the land, as we forge forward with this work.  In the American experience the indigenous are of course helping at the vanguard of the revolution and we have seen a massive area of the Midwest declare its independence from the Union, the newly formed Republic of Lakotah.  Again we can learn from the experience of these PAZ’s and indeed the wisdom of the indigenous as they forge forward on these experiments.


     Here in Australia a similar movement is beginning amongst the Aboriginals currently under military occupation in the outback of the Northern Territory.  The aboriginals who have led the Ampilatwatja walk off are endeavouring to build as self sufficient a community as possible. (http://www.theage.com.au/national/outcast-aborigines-stage-red-desert-walkout-20100212-nxko.html)

One that will undoubtedly be able to declare sovereignty once it is strong enough.


So as the revolution gathers pace this I believe is the way forward. Community control, personal sovereignty, sovereignty of natives with the land and a complete disregard and resistance to anything the Globalist fascists try and push on us in the coming months.  Already we have seen some attempts at some of the larger gatherings of the Psychedelic community to begin establishing a similar level of self sufficiency.  Areas of land associated with some of the biggest music festivals (the traditional heartland of the TAZ) have begun exploring more sustainable and permanent fixtures.


Of course nothing we build will be perfect but at least it will be a start of turning our back on the deranged men (and some women) who stalk the halls of power now and who seem to hate their lives so much they want to destroy themselves and us with them. And we will still have to resist the greatest assault that the Globalists are attempting to throw at us the creation of a third world war.  I will go into further thoughts on that topic in a future article.  But for now as the crisis reaches fever pitch we can begin preparing our communities in the ways explored above. In answer to the mayhem that the so called Project For A New American Century has unleashed on us all lets fly the flag of the Project For A New Autonomous Millennia in defiance of it.

"The Secret" Revealed! > by Ralf

The Secret revealed! Of Snake Oil and Other Charmers

by Ralf

I had an interesting, if somewhat drunken, Earthdance. Given that it is the global party and day for peace, I spent the day picking peoples brains to further my understanding of why the resistance to war in this country is not growing with what has been going on. In some way I finally found an answer. In several separate conversations with people they urged me to watch "The Secret" to cast more light on things. In fact they were all saying the same thing. That to resist something will only give it more power and all used "The Secret" as an example of a cogent explanation to this theory. Luckily I had recently been given a copy of "The Secret" that I had not yet watched so it was obviously something the Universe was putting in my way. I have since watched it and am glad that people finally urged me into checking this out. I had no idea that things were getting so bad.

I guess I better start with a positive, as it wouldn't be right to bring anyone down with negative vibes. These guys are definitely getting craftier we have to tip our hats to them on that level. I have long wondered how long it would take for the establishment to get a serious handle on what we have been up to and start fighting fire with fire. Obviously this particular movie has a struck a chord with a number of people from the psychedelic world here in Melbourne. Indeed this makes sense since it draws heavily on the emergent spiritual theory that seems to be growing out of the Psychedelic and Quantum Physics worlds about the nature of reality and ones ability to control it and manifest it with ones thoughts. This idea is obviously becoming more and more of a driving force assisting in the decision making of people from our culture.

And as The Secret is one of the newest and freshest manifestos, in the tradition of What The Bleep Do We Know etc, about where such an insight can lead us in the way we live our lives it makes sense that it seems to be influential at the moment. Indeed it is actually produced and made by a team of people FROM Melbourne so another reason why it must resonate so solidly with people from this city. This theory and greater enlightenment that is growing is of course very exciting and I certainly understand and believe much of the framework and basis behind it. My own deep psychedelic sojourns have allowed similar teachings to be downloaded. However once receiving this enlightenment one must be cautious about where the logic steps then take us as to how we apply that in the practical physical world. And once 'THEY' work out we are onto this they will inevitably use it against us. And so they have with the production of this twisted abomination;The Secret.

Obviously the central 'truths' behind "The Secret" are in some way correct. As they have to be in order to coat the blue pill they are feeding us in it in a believable framework. The more believable the less likely we will notice the atrocious mind control going on in this pithy piece of propaganda. The whole premise behind the movie seems to have been to resubvert the Psychedelic enlightenment back into blatant consumerist, capitalistic, individualistic culture. They have certainly hit on one of the Ancient Laws of Attraction all right. That of Fool And His Money Are Soon Parted. Almost all of the premises are presented to show how to use these skills and techniques in order to amass more wealth for ONESELF personally and to make ONES own life a heaven at the expense of all else. The American Dream in a nutshell really.

That was really where this movie started to rankle me. A quote on the shows own website states; "Previous to what Rhonda had thought, she discovered there were people out there alive who were aware of this information. Actually, there were lots of them, and they were some of the world's greatest living scientists, philosophers, and authors. In every part of the world, different fragments of The Secret were being offered, to anyone that would listen. All that was needed was to pull all of the pieces together... Well it appears that every part of the world includes one Australian businessman and a veritable army of Americans. Amazing that the whole worlds knowledgeable people now happen to reside only in America. Or maybe it's just that as, by the movies own admittance, "The Secret" has been passed down in a direct lineage from the Babylonians (surely that was a clue guys Babylonians warmongering psycho's remember?) it was bound to be concentrated in the seat of world power. Or maybe they uncovered it recently in Iraq. After the helicopter assault camp, Camp Alpha, had been established at the site of ancient Babylon in 2003 and they had finished ethnically cleansing any of the pesky sand niggers in the area they uncovered it and returned it to all of us lucky westerners as a spoil of war.


At any rate the whole thing seems to be one of the first mass marketing ploys aimed directly at people who think in the more abstract ways that our community is known for. Drawing on the ground breaking popular media that was coming out of our underground in art such as What The Bleep Do We Know;The Matrix and even The Da Vinci Code in some sense. Repackaged and fed back into us quite craftily. On the face of it it's a great movie. It's only with a bit of research that one realises how ridiculous it is. The movie purports to have begun in 2004 when a Melbourne woman by the name of Rhonda Byrne discovered a book that sets her on this marvellous journey of discovery that uncovers The Secret. The books title is not mentioned in the movie but on the website it is stated as being a tome by the name of The Science of Getting Rich. This book is also remarkably available to purchase on the website along with numerous other items based on. The Secret. Now I don't claim to have read the book but from its title I would hazard a guess it goes something like Step 1. Start An Internet Marketing Cult. Step 2. Fleece Melbourne's hippy community as often as possible. Well that's science isn't it?

So who is Rhonda Byrne? Well she and three other like-minded 'souls' started up Prime Time Productions, the company behind the whole scam, after they left Channel Nine Melbourne. So they are certainly very cosy with the establishment there. But maybe they DID have a revelation and that's why they left Channel Nine to start their own company and they are not such bad guys really. Well Prime Time are responsible for some of our most craptacular shows in the Australian media sphere including Worlds Greatest Commercials and Great Escapes. Wonder if the whole The Secret scam will be winning a Worlds Greatest Commercial award in a few years time. Its scope is certainly quite massive. And one of the four founders, Rhonda's sister Glenda, spent a stint of time working for that great pinnacle of journalistic integrity channel Nine's A Current Affair. Brilliant when they are not busy trying to get rival networks reporters eaten by cannibals in the highlands of Papua they are telling the hippies in Melbourne not to worry so much about the direction the worlds taken and to just focus on their inner journey.

At any rate the whole show is backed up by a MASSIVE marketing campaign. The way they sell the DVD itself is like any number of self-help scams. Check out the main add at thesecret.com.au . I mean this is the realm of four AM infomercials. All the 'gurus' interviewed in the show are blatantly promoted on the shows main website with links to all the numerous projects they have on the go themselves. Here is just a small selection of some of the characters involved in this tripe: bobproctor.com, tradingedge.com.au, drdemartini.com, marcishimoff.com .

As well as the numerous side campaigns you can start shelling out your cash too the Secrets website itself has numerous spin off merchandise for sale. Fancy The Secret document scroll holder?? Only $49.95. Or how about a set of three Gratitude Rocks. Rocks that the show itself admitted were just picked up off the road or from a creek. Again low LOW price of $39.95. I needs to get me some of that snake oil.


Suddenly all the shows hype about using complex vibrational thought theory, or the Law of Attraction, in a shallow attempt to gain money, cars, partners etc starts to make sense. It's the age old marketing ploy. Indeed quite a lot of the premise behind what the show is saying seems to be a sort of repackaged Social Darwinism for the new age. We saw this very same thing used to pervert and destroy amazing theories in the past. Darwin's amazing new theory of evolution was perverted into the horror of social Darwinism by the Capitalists at the turn of the last century. Social Darwinists were able to convince the world that many atrocities were in fact okay because of the "Survival of the Fittest" law. This was an incontrovertible law of nature they argued therefore if you had a tonne of money and a little kid was starving down the end of your street you didn't really need to feel so bad. It was natures law you were just lucky enough to be fitter. You didn't need to feel any guilt just buy a new car there there. And thus all the imbalances of Capitalism began to become steadily more entrenched. Fast forward to now and we have the same argument presented in modern terms. Its almost blatantly stated by that Bob Proctor character at the start of the movie when he admits that 1% of the planets population earns 95% of the worlds wealth. He states on his website that its "So out of balance that its hard to understand unless you truly research and understand it". And where does this twisted logic lead them? That the new law of nature the Law of Attraction is responsible. That black kid starving out back is ONLY starving coz he has negative vibes man. He is bringing it all down on his own head. And your leading a fairly well off life because you are In Line With The Universe and are putting out Positive Thoughts man. Oh yeah and you were lucky enough to be born into a culture that has nukes and can make SURE that black kid keeps starving. Haven't we heard this logic before in the classic That girl was wearing a mini skirt and thus was ASKING to be raped. Seems a bit of a fallacious argument to me.

At least it allows people in a Capitalistic world to once again suspend morality and continue fucking anyone and everyone over for their own personal benefit. Indeed that is the other great flaw I see in this argument. It is so highly focussed on individualism. Do this and YOUR life will get better. Focus on this and YOU will receive something. These 'Gurus' have all grown up on the inside of a culture TOTALLY geared towards individualism. So no matter what cultural deprogramming they take part in to gain there insights, Prayer, Meditation, Psychedelics, they will still have traces of this culture ingrained in them. One wonders what a similar 'documentary', focussing on people who are coming to the same conclusions about the "Law of Attraction", but who grew up surrounded by a communist culture would come up with. Coming from inside a culture totally geared to the reverse, the surrender almost of all of ones self to a hive mind collective that was communism at its zenith, what conclusions on this Attraction theory would they be arriving at?

And this brings me to one of the most insidious parts of this movie. The Secret of the World as the movie calls it. This really was the clincher. The punch that was well and truly hidden away in this movie. And the reason that people were bringing the movie up in arguments AGAINST resisting genocide and war. Again it was hidden amongst truths so the argument appeared attractive but it was really a steaming pile of horse shit. An excuse to do nothing in the face of something massive. It offered the amazing assertion that one should NOT resist at all the things that are patently crap about the world at the moment. As this would only feed into them. The astonishing assertion was even made by one of the "Teachers", one Jack Canfield, that the Anti Drug movement had fuelled the ever increasing amount of drugs in the world. Because it was a movement OPPOSED to something it had increased the prevalence of that thing. Well sorry mate, maybe it has to do with the fact that most of the people behind the "Anti Drug movement were corrupt ho's that were selling drugs just as fast as they were whacking up "Say No" posters. THAT'S why the Anti Drug movement failed. It was never intended to succeed in the FIRST place.


And then the movie launches its real stinger. It states that the Anti War movement had CREATED MORE WAR!?!? It even used stock footage of the Anti War movement of the 60's as it made this assertion thus linking a negative image about the resistance to this new claim. Hmmmm There were mistakes yes and it did take 10 years but the ANTI War movement of the 60's and 70's forced a super power to fucking disengage from Vietnam!?!?!? I think that's a success. And if there were more such movements in more countries I think you would have a harder time starting some of these conflagrations off. Obviously this time round the state has been very clever about launching this war. It had the media empire primed and ready to roll. We saw that with the flashy War On Terror logos and America Under Attack logos that were appearing within 30 minutes of the second plane hitting the second building. And they were obviously ready to deal with any rumblings from the hippy/psychedelic culture that had nailed them during the cold war. What better idea than make them think that rising up was actually the ANTITHESIS of their beliefs.

Hide it amongst their OWN literature. Although in this case they didn't really hide who they worked for very well. It only took me 10 minutes and Google to uncover who they all were. The real super bomb of this attack on the anti war movement was this amazing statement from one of the teachers Esther Hicks. Again it had a ring of truth to it but was concealing a very nasty sting. "So let the variety of your reality thrill you as you get to choose from among it those things that you're wanting. And when you see something that you want in your experience think about it. Find the feeling place of it. Get inside of it, talk about it and write it down. Write a script about it. Make it your reality by becoming a match to it. And when you see those things that you are not wanting in your experience, do not talk about them. Don't write about them. Don't join groups that worry about them. Don't push against them. Do your best to ignore them. Remove your attention from the things that you do not want while you give your undivided attention to the that things that you do want. Brilliant idea. After a decade of being told to Question All Authority and Resist Wherever Possible, now all we have to do is ignore the psychopaths all together and be totally self absorbed instead. If were lucky this will make sure there is no organised anti war resistance coming out of the psychedelic 'left' and may even kill off Labour Unionism as well. Don't join any groups that worry about yours or anyone's social well being folks that will only lead to war and pestilence!

Our enlightened teacher Esther works for a group called The Teachings Of Abraham. I'm guessing that she is most probably Jewish. You would think with that heritage you would be extremely cautious about urging the sort of shit that she is in that above statement. There WAS a country where quite a lot of the population, indeed most of it, chose to ignore something because it was too evil and too massive for them. That's right folks you guessed it Germany. And there was this small embarrassment of a pack of psychos known as the National Socialists, maybe we forgot them. So really we should be applauding the Germans of the 1920's and 1930's. They were in fact spiritually advanced as they chose to en masse ignore the more insane aspects of what the Nazi's were proposing and just focussed on the great side of their little movement. Maybe we should all ask our Jewish friends how happy they are that the vast majority of Germans, indeed most of the world, chose to ignore that 'Unpleasantness'. Although by this logic the Jews themselves brought the whole disaster down on them by their own negative thoughts. I know the stereotype of a Jew can be that they have Self Hatred issues but really 6 million of them hated themselves THAT much!?!??!!? Sorry if that's stretching the plausibility boundaries.

They then try and set up an argument about how you should always term things in the positive. Now I do think that that is an important thing to try and do in most aspects of life. But not to the extent where you stop calling a spade a spade. Setting something up in opposition to something else is fine. Just because something is Anti does not make it evil. Just as things that are Pro are not all good. This John Canning character in the movie goes on to quote Mother Theresa saying that she made a statement to the effect that she would never attend an anti war rally but only a pro peace rally. Well I have done a search for that particular quote and as yet can not find where she said it and in what context. After a Google search for it I found reference to it only on two private blogs again with no sources listed. Indeed one of the blogs uses it as a launching point for a discussion on the Law Of Attraction using so much similar terminology that I can only assume his source of the quote was the movie itself. If someone can direct me to where the source of this quote is I would be very interested.

Regardless she most likely did say this but she also said the following in her 1979 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. I was surprised in the West to see so many young boys and girls given into drugs, and I tried to find out why - why is it like that, and the answer was: Because there is no one in the family to receive them. Father and mother are so busy they have no time. Young parents are in some institution and the child takes back to the street and gets involved in something. We are talking of peace. These are things that break peace, but I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing - direct murder by the mother herself." So obviously her benchmark of what constitutes a war is quite complex. Maybe too complex for her to fully appreciate the aims of the 'Anti War' movement.

At any rate one of the most PRO PEACE people I know is my Father, a member of the US military. He truly is. I can tell that he is totally sincere that he believes what he supports will assist in bringing about world peace. His belief was that Thermonuclear weapons were the one true path to world peace. The threat of MAD, utually Assured Destruction, and the balance of power of the Cold War was the serious path to ensuring no more wars on the planet. Unfortunately the concept of the cold war crumbling or the new threat of asymmetric warfare (do I hear a 767 slamming into a high-rise anyone?) hadn't crossed their minds yet. onetheless that is what one group of Pro Peace people believes. Forgive me if it's a radical idea of mine but the concept of thermonuclear weaponry, is to me at any rate, a HIGHLY negative vibe. So all the whinging rom some of the "Teachers" about don't be anti this be PRO that really doesn't hold up to closer scrutiny. More excuses from more filthy rich Americans.

So there you have it. My take on The Secret and why it should not in ANY way make us doubt that Australia's psychedelic community should be forging serious links to a wider and very strong, unashamedly ANTI War movement as this thing spirals into greater conflict. The lesson from The Secret is also that they have obviously finally worked out the pulse of our culture. They have managed to get a finger onto one of our buttons and so from now on we will have to be far more vigilant as more of these slick hippie doco's come out. We will have to check and double check all sources very closely. The sharks of a new type of evangelism are obviously circling on the outskirts of our community and we should immunise ourselves against this. Otherwise in a few short years we will all be dropping acid and heading off to an Anthony Robbins convention instead of an Earthdance.

The ideas and concepts behind the Law of Attraction theory really are groundbreaking and bear much more investigation. As more of that information comes to light though, we will now have to carefully sift out the crap that gets thrown in the way to try and confuse us and lock down the Matrix again. The Secret is one of those that can safely be shelved alongside our Goebbles collection.

Social Engineering of culture and yes, Virginia, the counter-culture is an age old tool, made all the more immediate in this age of "information war". Yet while trying to control situations everything has an equal and opposite reaction often unforseen by those who manipulate.
