Overcoming the Myth of Authority

Overcoming the Myth of Authority
by Gary Z McGee
Posted May 22, 2018

question authorityThe problem with belief in authority is that it leads to the idea that we need to give a group of people permission to control us. And, as Lord Byron taught us, power given to an authority tends to become corrupt.

The problem with power is not the intent behind it. The problem with power is that it tends to corrupt the one wielding it regardless of their intent. So, since we all know that power tends to corrupt whether one has good or bad intentions, and since we know that we will all seek power anyway, it behooves us to be mercilessly circumspect both with our own power and against the power of others.

It stands to reason that we should not ignorantly give power to an authority by blindly believing it. We should instead challenge authority first, and trust it second, if at all. The best way to use our power is to use it against authority by ruthlessly questioning it. It’s a social leveling mechanism par excellence. As a wise, young sixth grader once said, “Question authority, including the authority that told you to question authority.” More…

It’s Now or Never – The Fight for Freedom

It’s Now or Never – The Fight for Freedom
By Tim Bryant
Posted May 16, 2018

fight for freedomThere is a massive global awakening happening before our very eyes. This isn’t a centralized movement or centralized event, but instead is a global consciousness shift of individuals in all parts of the world. Thanks in large part to the creation of the Internet, the lid has popped off and previously unknown information is flooding out everywhere. A whole new alternative network of information and news has emerged to facilitate its growth. The age of information is real.

People are beginning to put the pieces together and realize that most of the education taught in schools, most of the media consumed on the television, and most of the food consumed into our bodies, is one big distortion of reality. History is far from what we have been lead to believe. The powers that be are preventing the flow of information somewhat, but at this point the cat may be out of the bag. More…

The Only Worthwhile Investment We Ever Make

The Only Worthwhile Investment We Ever Make

investment worth makingWe are all perpetually bombarded with an endless array of investment opportunities, be it an investment of our attention, energy, money, skill, sweat, emotions, knowledge, etc. But what if there was only ONE investment that perpetually yields an everlasting, incalculable, limitless dividend?

Would that not obviously and always be the best investment, regardless of circumstances or context? But what if we simply can’t distinguish this ultimate investment opportunity from all the rest? It would be impossible to know if we have chosen this perfect investment unless every possible observed investment opportunity came with OUR direct knowingness that the speculative, transient, alluring concept of potential profits and mitigated losses were temporary and provided zero enduring benefits whatsoever.

That kind of awareness would be priceless beyond all measure. More…

How This CSA Started By A Chemistry Teacher May Be The Future Of Local Agriculture

How This CSA Started By A Chemistry Teacher May Be The Future Of Local Agriculture
By Aaron Fernando
Posted April 24, 2018

Community supported agriculture Quietly nestled on the side of a hill in the rural town of Caroline, New York, just a short drive from Ithaca, Nook and Cranny Farm is well-suited to its name. Its owner, Bob Tuori, has owned the plot of land that it sits on for almost two decades. Over the years, he has grown it into a prime example of a community-focused intensive, efficient, and sustainable small farm.

Tuori’s farm is particularly notable for a few reasons. Not only does it utilize a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) business model to supply high-quality produce to over 60 families in the region and employ people from the area, but it does so with only four acres of arable land, by using it as sustainably and efficiently as possible.

Add this to that the fact that Tuori himself is a full-time high school chemistry teacher — as he has been for the duration Nook and Cranny’s existence — and you get a close-up view of what a local, citizen-led agricultural revolution might look like. In a country where far too many people still do not have access to nutritional food (see USDA’s interactive atlas of food deserts) small farms like Nook and Cranny that are located in the communities they feed offer much promise in their ability to increase access to high-quality food.

Experiment Demonstrates the Deadly Power of Social Compliance

Experiment Demonstrates the Deadly Power of Social Compliance

subservience to authority blocks moral decisionsIn his 1974 book, Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View, Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram discusses in detail the findings of his now famous experiment. Milgram demonstrated just how easy it is to convince an ordinary person to commit torture and murder under the instruction of an authority figure.

Intrigued by the role of Nazi military personnel in concentration camps during WWII, Milgram wanted to know how much coercion people needed in order to willingly inflict harm on another person.

“He asked volunteers to deliver an electric shock to a stranger. Unbeknownst to the volunteers, there was no shock — and the people they were shocking were actors pretending to be terribly hurt, even feigning heart attacks.

“Milgram found that most people would keep delivering the shocks when ordered by a person in a lab coat, even when they believed that person was gravely injured. Only a tiny percentage of people refused.”  More…

The Upside of Corporate Internet Censorship

The Upside of Corporate Internet Censorship
by Dylan Charles
Posted April 9, 2018

corporate Internet censorshipIn 2015, Matt Drudge of Drudge Report issued a warning to all independent journalist and individuals participating in the information revolution. He warned that we were swiftly entering the era of extreme information censorship, made possible by the monopolization, corporatization and homogenization of the web by megalithic corporations like Google, Facebook and Twitter. Their aim, he notes, is to force all of us to operate on their playgrounds rather than create truly independent outlets.

Essentially, he was describing a culture war – an attempt to force us all into a severe state of groupthink, and he urged us to immediately start creating our own vision for the net, something that operates outside of the corporate internet ghettos which have essentially stolen our content, ideas and creativity.

Reprogramming Your DNA By Your Words

Reprogramming Your DNA By Your Words
By Michael Forrester
Posted April 3, 2018

reprogram your own DNAOur DNA can feed its proper data into a network of consciousness and can call up data from the network and also establish contact with other participants in the network. When words and phrases are spoken and modulated on specific frequencies — the reprogramming effect on DNA are extraordinary.

In recent years, Russian scientists have embarked on groundbreaking DNA research, and have made a stunning scientific discovery. In an astonishing experiment, these scientists discovered that the human body’s DNA can easily be reprogrammed by human speech.

According to them, our DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body but also serves as data storage and in communication. The Russian linguists found that the genetic code, especially in the apparently useless junk DNA follows the same rules as all our human languages. To this end they compared the rules of syntax (the way in which words are put together to form phrases and sentences), semantics (the study of meaning in language forms) and the basic rules of grammar. They found that the alkalines of our DNA follow a regular grammar and do have set rules just like our languages. So human languages did not appear coincidentally but are a reflection of our inherent DNA. More…

7 Ways an Improved Spirituality is Emerging in the Western World

7 Ways an Improved Spirituality is Emerging in the Western World
by Phillip J. Watt
Posted March 27, 2018

improved spirituality Finally there is a little more ‘uncommon sense’ sweeping widely across spiritual mindsets in Western communities. Even though there are still many ideological splits – especially in regards to those who lean towards a more gnostic view and those who engage more with new age perspectives – there appears to be a greater acceptance of the shadow across the entire spectrum.

To begin, remember the saturation of lopsided new age memes that so many people were advocating over the last several years? Thankfully they have appeared to subside in intensity as many people begin to realise that denying the dark whilst deluding themselves with a false positivity just wasn’t working for them. Why thankfully? To put it bluntly, it was foolish. Impractical. It made little sense and just disconnected people further from not just themselves, but each other, and reality at large. More…
