Toxic Waves—> Lies & Betrayal

Put nature and the Earth before money & "false profit" at the expense of the planet $$$. The first and most important step in 'Transformation' is respect for NATURE. We need to stop the natural world from being exploited and destroyed. Demand justice against the never ending lies & betrayal--> Toxic Waves in the Ocean of Pain/Sea of Despair. There is a war on against the Earth/Nature/Animals/Environment/Life. What is done to the Earth is done to ourselves. Truth is always the first casualty of war.

The Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill is a crime scene (of contamination) where the attempt has been made to 'cover the truth up' and destroy evidence by making things far worse and deadly. (Sound familiar?) As is always the case- the only "truth" that there is... is that we are continually being lied to on a monumental scale. The killing of the planet continues as the toxic waves crash to the shore. History repeats itself if we do not learn from it. Unless we demand the "truth about history", and hold those responsible for the lies and betrayal *accountable* for their crimes against the planet, we will never be able to make any true and lasting "progress". The truth is vitally important. We cannot forget history/mistakes & lies of the past; if we do we will never be able to create a better/positive/livable future based on truth, justice and freedom for all with the focus being on respect and love for the Earth/Nature/Animals/Environment/Life. What is done to the Earth is done to ourselves. One Earth - One Love.

There is a war on against the environment. And as is always typical with war— deadly chemicals are used. Whether it's toxic COREXIT used to "combat" the toxic oil in this situation, or with endless wars 'around the globe', there is an ongoing assault and war being waged through the use of toxic chemicals constantly being used on countless victims of 'collateral murder'/and never ending crimes being committed against the innocent. Toxic and deadly chemicals are being used indiscriminately and discriminately; with the sole purpose of killing all life that comes into contact with them. They are all deadly weapons which will have the end result of destroying the planet. It's insane and despicable. Agent Orange, White Phosphorus, Depleted Uranium, corporate monsanto chemicals or any other of the never ending long list of toxic poisons being dumped into the ecosystem- the web of life that we are all a part of. Whether it's done in our "own" backyard or done on the other side of the planet, the reality is the Earth is one single organism and we are all a part of it. What's done to others is done to ourselves. The harm caused to the planet is caused to ourselves. The devastation caused anywhere on the planet is caused everywhere on the planet because we are ONE EARTH. Ultimately, we will all be 'casualties of war' if we don't work together, speak out, and try to help stop what is happening. All of the wars combined are killing the planet and in the end will kill us all (self destructive) if we don't demand justice and 'real change' and true and lasting Peace on Earth.

We see with our own eyes what the alternative is and see for ourselves how destructive it is and see how 'business as usual'/the status quo is killing the planet and see how it is completely not "sustainable"----> the "system" is obsolete and must change if we wish for there to be any kind of livable future. The same as with deadly chemicals, the 'system' we all live under causes 'death on contact' and it is up to all of us to change it. The 'system' is toxic and is powered by hate, lies & betrayal. Mother Earth is crying out— it's up to all of us to find our voice, follow our conscience and help liberate her from all the injustice and 'war crimes'. We are all a part of the planet. What is done to "others" is done to us all. Animals/Nature/Environment are all our "salvation". We are all 'one'; an organism at war with itself is doomed. Either war is made obsolete or we will all be made to be. We are the Earth's defenders/protectors. We cannot depend on or expect the "authorities" to do the right thing. It's the same as with all who are in so-called "positions of power". Their 'vision' is focused on selfishness, greed, money, and on conquering/dominating and making subservient the Earth (and all creatures living here- including us). In the eyes of "the powers that be" we are all 'disposable' and 'acceptable losses' in their war-game of deception and hegemony. This is the (un)Nature of Empire and of corporatist fascism. It is the antithesis of nature and all that is good, kind, just, beautiful and harmonious. All of what really matters most in our World is being destroyed; slaughtered under the 'illusion of justified war and conquest'. They have no conscience and no respect for life in their pursuit of money, power & control. They are too busy 'profiting from the destruction of the planet'. They hate the Earth; they must in order for them to mistreat her the way that they do. They have no concern for exploiting/bleeding her to death beyond anything that is comprehensible.

It's up to us to Change the culture—> no more 'culture of death'. No more culture that values globalization/corporatization/militarization and accepts the crimes of corporatocracy/transnational corporations and grants them their freedom to dominate and spew their toxicity at the expense of the planet's well-being. Those in positions of power/so-called "world leaders-deceivers" are not "entitled" to destroy the planet. What gives them the "right"? They are wrong in what they do. Why would those who aspire to such goals consider it to be a "privilege" to be among this group of people who consider themselves to be "elite" and "superior" in their actions that are causing the planet to suffer and bleed through never ending war and lies? No one is superior to anyone else— we are all EQUAL and all deserve the same rights and freedom. It's up to us all to free the entire Earth from the enslavement of the 'system of death' by shining the light on the ongoing corruption and never ending lies (lies needed to perpetuate the 'war agenda'). Truth is the first casualty of war. Never lose sight of the 'big picture'. Always think globally/act locally. Every action inspires a reaction and we can all play a part and make a difference in healing the Earth through our combined focus, attention and positive intentions. It is all 'cause & effect'. Within us all is the power to change things. Keep 'being the media' and continue striving to help make others aware of the plight of the planet. The first step to freedom is to see beyond the lies, myths/illusion perpetrated on us all by those in 'positions of power' and by complicity of the corporate media.

Flashback—>—> War criminals from the past must be held accountable in the present so we can "progress" and move forward in a positive way into the future. No more 'sweeping toxic lies and garbage under the rug' where it will fester/multiply/get far worse. Things must be brought out into the 'light of day' - it really is the best 'disinfectant/decontaminator' against the disease known as the toxic "system" that we live under and are all enslaved by. Truth is always essential to creating a positive future—we cannot have Peace without it. Crimes of the magnitude that lead to war (based on lies) cannot go unchecked/unpunished. So-called "world leaders" do not have entitlement/privilege/free-reign to wage war against us all. They are hateful, heartless, and despicable. If they have a heart it's toxified. Either war is made obsolete or we all will be made to be. It is really not a concept that is hard to understand - it is a fact.

History repeats unless we stop it, we have the power. See beyond the "corporate brainwashing and ceaseless distractions" that permeate from corporate inFLUence. It's a sickness. The corporate media "filters out" the truth of things. Their idea of sanitizing the news is to make it 'truth free' by shielding people from the reality of the nightmare that is war (also from the crimes of the so-called leaders/authorities) thus allowing the war and crimes to continue unabated and without justice. Being made to be ignorant/apathetic/in denial about war and what causes/leads to it... should be viewed as a bad thing. Lies lead to war. Truth is the first casualty of war. See beyond the smoke & mirrors/lies/myths/illusion. It is important to 'shine the light on things'- truth sets us all free. Demand Justice and speak out against the 'Industry of War'- war privatization/profiteering/disaster capitalism.

Put nature and the Earth before money & "false profit" $$$. The first and most important step in 'Transformation' is respect for NATURE. We need to stop the natural world from being exploited and destroyed. With regard to Cultural Revolution, we can all 'be the spark' that contributes to changing society in positive ways. It's up to all of us to help 'shine the light on the reality of things' and help to Free Earth from what is being done to her. We just need to think 'differently' and see things with new eyes/through the eyes of others; with respect for diversity/equality/other's lives (animals included). Thinking in new ways is what innovation is all about. New thoughts create new thoughts which in turn have the power to create new ideas and solutions to the problems facing the planet today. Ideas free and "disconnected" from the power of corporate control & constraint. Ideas free from the domination of the destructive & obsolete "system" of control. There is value in independent 'freedom of thought'.

Follow the Money -----> $$$$$. Demand truth and accountability from those responsible for the killing of Mother Earth through their reckless/destructive actions. Always question all so-called "authority" and "leaders" and their motives because they are always driven by the pursuit of "profit" $$$ at the expense of the Earth; "profit" at the expense of all of us. Power Corrupts--> Absolute power corrupts absolutely. They do not care about killing as long as there are dollar signs at the end of their sick and twisted endeavors/agenda. We need to stop handing over to them 'our power' and expecting them to be the ones to make the positive changes. They are corrupt and compromised by the virus that is greed; their motives not to be trusted. They do not care about us, they only care about themselves and their money $$$. In this life... we're on our own. Actually, we have each other and should try to love one another more and try to help each other out as best as we can in these difficult times. Above all else, we need to never lose hope or stop believing in ourselves to help change things. We are 'all the ones we've been waiting for'. Another World is possible. It's up to all of us to bring it into reality. Focus on alternative renewable energy resources that do not threaten to annihilate the planet through greed-centric 'living in excess' and over consumption. The Earth is being consumed.

Corexit was (is?) used in massive quantities to hide the magnitude of the oil spill. A major cover-up is underway. . . what a surprise (not). The lies and corruption never ends. There is a war on against the environment. Why is the Ocean being sprayed with poisonous chemicals that do nothing but worsen the problem in a catastrophic way? The Corexit is far more toxic (to anything alive) than the oil alone. It was just used to cause the oil to sink below the surface and to hide what they are doing and the damage they caused. Why is the so-called "Environment Protection Agency" not speaking out against this crime? Demand justice against the never ending lies & betrayal---> Toxic Waves in the Ocean of Pain/Sea of Despair.

As is always the case... those who are the most vulnerable suffer the most. We cannot live without the diversity of animals/trees/plants- they are not just "resources" to be sacrificed/slaughtered- used and abused; to be poisoned; to be devoured as 'war casualties' to fuel the self destructive "system" of war, greed & overconsumption we are all enslaved by. What is done to them is done to ourselves. The 'system' must change for the sake of all that is good in life. Mass Extinction Underway | Biodiversity Crisis | Global Species Loss  http://www.well.com/~davidu/extinction.html

Biodiversity (DIVERSITY) is eVerything. We are all a part of the ecosystem.

In the war on against Mother Earth demand the truth and demand justice. Keep Asking Questions. Question all so-called "authority" always. Don't trust "misleaders" who lie, deceive, and betray. Demand accountability, truth, justice— PEACE. Always ask questions because this is how we grow, evolve and make progress. Never lose hope. It's never too late to change things. 'We the people' have the power because we have the numbers. The whole system that we live in drills into us that we're powerless, that we're weak. It's all a big lie. We are powerful, beautiful and extraordinary. Power should not be in the hands of the few "so-called elite" just because they have the money. They should not have the freedom to sacrifice the planet for their own 'war agenda'. They do not have the right to destroy the Earth so they can continue to fill their own pockets. For the sake of all that is good and just in life we must find our voices and speak out. We must act on behalf of the planet. We are NATURE - We need to ACT like it. Answers come from the 'grassroots'. Destiny is in 'our hands' not theirs. There is 'no fate' except for what we choose to create. We have love for the Earth on our side and that is what matters most above all else. Visualize looking down on the planet and visualize healing her with 'Waves of never ending Love and Compassion'.

Flashback— it's important to rethink things and reassess the gravity of the situation so history doesn't repeat itself. See beyond the corporate mainstream media control.

(Dolphins Cry) - COREXIT KILLING THE GULF -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Enmkrw7pV_I

Cry for the bird with broken wings
Cry for the world that will not spin
Cry for the loss of innocence
Cry for a love, turned loveless
Sometimes I think of you, when I'm alone
Oh no Cry ...
Nothing will ever be the same
all is ruined and put to shame
tears and stars are one and the same
when I look up through my focused lens
But sometimes I think of you, when I'm alone
Oh no Cry ... tears and stars confide, collide then die
Deep inside tears run dry, but I cry and cry.
Tiger skins and elephant tusks
in guilted mountains seep disgust
I look at you and I want to speak
for once in a while be a man and weep
'cos all the dolphins and whales have gone
all good tidings and hopes have blown
all our nightmares are flying home
and it's too late to do anything but ...
Cry ... tears and stars confide, collide then die
deep inside tears run dry, but I cry and cry
Cry ...

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." - Albert Camus

Free your mind and free the World— from domination/enslavement caused by the system. The system is killing the planet. The key to finding solutions is an 'open-mind'.

Solidarity & Peace

Critical Thinking is the Key. . . 16.Aug.2010 12:42

set it free~~~*

Set the Earth Free. We are all being exposed to the 'toxic system'. It is up to us to change it. Every aspect of the system must change; we need to use critical thinking to see how things are connected. See beyond the 'corporate media' spin/distractions/lies.

In the 'system' we all live in war is 'business as usual' and "profit" is made at the expense of the innocent. Never ending war is always a 'losing battle' because in the end it will kill all life on the planet. The system/status quo continues with lies 'built upon' lies. Never ending lies & betrayal lead to war and cause us all to continue to 'go round in circles' in negative ways with no real "progress" being made. It's up to us at the 'grassroots level' to build a positive future on a strong 'foundation of truth & justice in all areas of inquiry' so that ultimately it will Lead to Peace. Connections need to be made. Lies are toxic to the planet. With truth we can all evolve in a positive way which in turn will enable us to Heal the Earth.

The more time goes by, the more people forget, the more dangerous it is for everyone 'exposed' to the horror and 'nightmare of war'. War exposure and the lies that lead to war are hazardous and deadly to us all. What is done to others is done to us all.

There are still many unanswered questions and much 'critical thinking' that needs to be used with regard to the events of 9/11. Lies are toxic and denial is dangerous. Ignorance is not bliss.

Waking Up from Our Nightmare. . .

The workers at ground zero, as well as the general public, were exposed to high levels of toxicity in the cleanup, in the aftermath of the 9/11 disaster. What "chemicals" were contained within the dust that the public was not informed about? How dangerous is it to breathe in asbestos and nanothermite particles? "Shielding" people from the truth about their 'exposure to toxicity' is wrong and hazardous to people's health. We are all being exposed to a 'toxic system'.

There was never a 'real investigation' into the crime scene of September 11th, 2001 that led us into the wars we are still involved in today. The only "truth" is that we were lied to about what actually happened that day. Making connections to see how we arrived at this point in history is incredibly important to our future and the World we wish to create. Facts & evidence cannot be ignored indefinitely.

Focus on truth and Shine the light on/expose the liars and war criminals. Rethink and Demand Justice so history doesn't repeat itself. People deserve the truth in all areas of inquiry. No more lies & betrayal.

in sight

Full circle— it all comes back to oil, money, power & control $$$. And of course an 'out of control' spiral/never-ending wave of lies through the 'spectacle of war' against the planet by the 'toxic system'. With war and hate we "devolve". It's up to all of us to 'be the change' and 'reverse the direction of the spiral'.

"Great nations are simply the operating fronts of behind-the-scenes, vastly ambitious individuals who had become so effectively powerful because of their ability to remain invisible while operating behind the national scenery. War is the ultimate tool of politics. Either war is obsolete or men are. If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely. It is absolutely touch and go. Each one of us could make the difference." ~ R. Buckminster Fuller

Mass-manipulation through the spectacle and 'use of fear' during the so-called "war on terror" years. All under the guise of 'fighting for freedom'. With critical thinking we can 'see beyond the mass deception'. Lies lead to military build-up which in turn lead to never ending war, death & destruction.

There is another way. . . All We Are Saying Is Give Peace a Chance. Truth sets us all free so we can evolve in positive ways.

(Studying history is necessary to avoid repeating past mistakes — denial of history is dangerous and has definite negative consequences for the future)
Imagine - John Lennon [A Perfect Circle cover]  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdybbBXDlOc&feature=related

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace." ~ Albert Schweitzer

(Metaphor) In the end the butterfly prevails— we are all butterflies. Together we have the power to change the 'war culture' and thus change the world. [butterfly effect] Create an 'environment of love' by respecting nature/life.

Inspire to Create a 'Revolution of Consciousness' with the focus on truth in 'all areas of inquiry'. Alternative/Independent media sources assist people in helping them to become informed of 'the big picture'; to counter the present day mainstream corporate media culture which facilitates a "war & corporate mindset". We are all products of what we watch and are exposed to. The merging of the two justifies in many people's minds their insatiable mass consumerist ways. The merging of "corporate greed" and "war for profit"— both of which are united and are destroying the planet by creating war and exploitation worldwide. The obtaining of "resources"/Oil War by any means necessary. The ceaseless stream of "corporate" views, ideas, and consciousness is toxic to not only us but the entire environment and well-being of the planet. Never ending global warring in the age of global warming— it's oxymoronic and an obscene 'spectacle'. Critical thinking is critical for the planet. RESISTANCE against war, greed, lies, and toxicity is natural and vital for survival. . . for the future and ultimate Peace on Earth.

"The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself." "We are a part of the Earth and it is part of us." ~ Chief Seattle
