We are the 99% who toil  and are taxed by an obsolete system....like
other over-thrown plutocracies, the standard of living falls as through
newly established agencies the wealth, through services made available,
are re-distributed.....and there should be such tight control of banking
systems to reign in their excesses and re-align them to assist the 99%
(not soup kitchens and grannies old petticoats-but educational loans,
lower or refinanced mortgage rates, go green, rebuild the infra structure, etc).
.....It's Cro-Magnon time, yippie yippie...cave drawings, clubs and exotic skins..
In Havana it's Fidele Adestes time....E Pluresy Udumbfuk., and All for One
and None for You....charity begins at home so send me some moola or da
guyz will be a knockin @ ur bak dore.....

Americans in the emerging fourth world nation don't mess with stocks 
any more, they pull out before ejaculation when everything goes
blooey, back off the old model, gears are stripped, motor is
knocking, exhaust is spewing toxic smoke, time to form co-ops,
share housing, gardens, transportation, get a doctor and dentist in
the group, connect with other groups over the internet, sharing of
secrets of how to live happily and healthily in low income mode,
taking care of things is the goal not participating in the
destruction of things.

The Whole Earth Catalog was a phenom at the time because it provided
a forum for people who were going out into the country on their own
wanting to build their own places, form their communal groups, grow
their own food, live the real American dream which is to be free of
credit debt and government intrusion, and still pay their taxes and
support schools and roads with the freedom of movement to travel and
go everywhere.

Today we need a new forum like that. It can exist on the internet. A
website called The Whole Earth Forum. Where people contribute their
knowledge, like how to get out of a mortgage, how to live without
credit cards, how to form commuinites of like minded people, in short
how to turn America into a country which I call an emerging fourth
world nation, one in which growth and expansion and big house big car
big ego big boss are shelved in favor of smaller materialistic goals
and greater family and community goals leading to less stressful
lives richer in happiness and spiritual fulfillment.

A resource, almost a university of the web, anyone can access it,
(long as they can get online, but anywhere there is a library that is
possible these days) find out answers to their problems.

We now have the domain name: wholeearthforum.com. Now we need
a website and someone to run it and the ability for people to post solutions
to specific problems, no rants on the situation, this is like a university
of the web, people in the know tell what they know, people who want to
know go to the website for the answers.


The Wall Street Demonstration has the backing of many employed 

workers as the mortgage scandal that Wall Street allowed with the compliance of 

the SEC has many workers so in a bind that they may lose anything bought on 

credit....the predominately college/young folks at the sit-in is how the 

economic disenfranchised  express themselves as no one has been  terribly

denied of any freedoms like those rebellions in the middle east and 

Africa.....they may seem unorganized and no definite goal but someone will soon 

supply one....and the democrats should be in that crowd encouraging the 

demonstration while offering valid suggestions.

....if the financiers don't fear the crowd. Madame LaFarge may be knitting 

a new scarf as the heads begin to roll, the golden parachutes collapse and

the  humongous bonuses returned to the government who bailed out many of the

finance  corporate heads the money (and the majority of them rewarded

themselves for  creating the worlds most destructive monetary collapse) to

stabilize their  houses....still unregulated in many ways, the corporate greed 

continues....taxing the millionaires , many of them paying a very minimum of 

taxes, is fair or their paper empires will collapse into dust when this

velvet  revolution manifests its self with the struggling middle class..

regardless if these business men contend that they are creating jobs. but 

don't seem to understand that the employment scale is totally out of balance

 ...those benefiting from their largess are in the rarefied air of greed

wile  the other scale can't even get airborne...that is not deniable but 

their  greed exhibits itself even in that belief......MacQ

A whole new class of Americans are being forced into an existence 
they didn't know was coming up and never imagined themselves caught
up in it; but fortunately there are lots of Americans who are in that
same postion but voluntarily: that is, they chose this way of life:
they learned how to band together with others of like situations and
figured out how to live cheaply, imaginatively and happily while
paring down to the bare bones.

One of the first things is no debt. Once the credit card is maxed
out, walk away from it, let them know you will never be able to pay
it, have the credit card people write it off, they will howl and
scream and threaten and say you will have no credit rating ever again
but that is okay, you don't need it, for you are going off the credit

Same with the house and the house payments that can't be met. Walk
away from it in the same way.

Now one must find housing and an occupation of some kind. Back in the
day it was communes and they are sprouting up again. In an urban
situation it would probably be an apartment building of some kind. I
remember when settlers would take over abandoned condemned buildings,
hijack electricity off the pole, turn the water on and bypass the

Tribes form, people who trust one another, cover for one another,
help out with money and food and shelter. Share kitchens and
bathrooms and showers and washers and dryers. Know doctors and
dentists that will donate their time and expertise. There are already
mobile clinics and dental labs that park on street corners.

Not to say this all applies to you and your situation, but is a
general ramble on the way adversity can be handled.

As far as work goes, in the type of community I'm talking about there
can be co-op ventures of cleaning gangs, car repair people, food
growers, musicians and performers, all working to bring in some cash
into the group. No end of possibilities, but important thing is,
people are working.

The Whole Earth Forum is an internet university where you can take
free courses in how to do all these things. What is needed is someone
to start up and run the website. The domain name already exists:
wholeearthforum.com. It is available for use by whoever wants to run
with this thing.

 Ray Manzarek & Roy Rogers album on called Translucent Blues, 
& in a tune called New Dodge City
Blues a verse that goes:

All the drugs, guns, money and the mayhem
These politicians play for the press
It's just more fucking fuel for the media burn
Time to take another acid test


Kesey said, "We will always be in the minority."
He also said, "There are more dumb people than smart people."
They can be manipulated by language.
Language that is distorted.
Words are demonized.
In World War Two, Japanese-American citizens were interred in camps.
Jap was a dirty word.
Joe McCarthy made communist a traitorous offense.
Today socialism is the worst brand possible.
The front cover photo and lead story of a recent Oregon Quarterly Magazine
Like they were dinosaurs and now extinct.
It was only forty some years ago.
A tree-planting co-op shared the work and the wealth.
They showed the way.
Co-ops can rule the day.
As the numbers of unemployed grow.
More people are available to form co-ops.
The occupy movement is inching in that direction.
From protest camps to social service centers.
Smart capable cooperative people
Joining forces to provide the essentials
Food clothing shelter warmth showers laundry and counseling.
Solving problems on their own.
Education is the key.
Learning how to solve problems
Then verbalizing the answers.
The action is what follows.
There is a force opposed to this.
Opposed to people doing it on their own.
Opoosed to those who take back the power from the powerful.
The language manipulators are already at work.
The next word to be demonized is co-ops.
We're on to them.
