Bernie Leaves Door Open (Slightly) To Green Party Run
These are tumultuous times. Actually, this is fucking crazy. We're in the wildest of times, as the inequality of an economic system that is controlled by a handful of elites who care nothing for humanity, us and our sisters and brothers, at all. They are 'happy' to ruin our lives and our Earth for their maniacal ends. But change, some call it revolution, is in the air. Most obviously recognized in the Sanders presidential campaign, we will not go quietly into the night any longer as the forces of a broken system try to continue their plunder. It is not to be.
Hi, and welcome to the new World 5.0 website. If you're new to this idea of World5, you're in for a treat. World 5.0 cracks the code of who and where we are, and suggests ways forward that will bring you happiness. Read the book and check out the Declaration video to submerse and learn.
And Now (ahem), we have a digital home. Here you find a refreshing retreat from bullshit and ads, a place where you can contribute and express yourself quite easily through the Connect menu link above. We can now finally be heard in a supportive way.
The Black Swan theory was developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb to explain the disproportionate role of high-profile, hard-to-predict, and rare events that are beyond the realm of normal expectations in history, science, finance, and technology. The printing press is an example.
Bernie Sanders has vowed to fight relentlessly for the 2016 Democratic Party’s nomination up to the convention and, despite the apparent consensus of the media’s talking heads that the campaign is a lost cause, he has held fast to his claim that there is a “narrow path to victory.” I am reminded of Galadriel’s ominous words of advice, in the Fellowship of the Ring: The quest stands upon the edge of a knife — stray but a little, and it will fail…
My what a cycle. Donald Trump is way out in front in inane media attention and with good reason - he’s a perfect fit. It’s hard to guess what the ultra elite want this time around, but we have quite the spectacle. If you understand your role as a citizen, you will not just be a spectator.
We Are The Revolution
Without us, there is no Bernie Sanders campaign...
See how we can re-introduce this wonderful plant into our culture.
The World Five Platform
This vid tell a brief story about the transformative power of the World 5.0 Platform.
World 5.0 - The Song
An awesome piece of music, and no, I'm not biased... :)
There is something very strange in the air these days. We're learning the truth. After a long struggle where we've been fed bullshit our entire lives and long centuries, we're starting to see the truth. Incredible. Astonishing.
There are a few reasons. The long arc of history is progress. Rulers and elites have been lying forever, but now we're seeing through the veil. Progressive movements have given us glimmers, but this time feels different. We won't be fooled again.
It’s clear that Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who has a substantial grasp of the depth of Washington corruption, corporate malfeasance and the horrific inequality that is the United States today.
We are in uncharted territory. This is like no time in our civilization’s history - global food shortages, climate crisis, unending war and violence, corporate domination, rampant systemic corruption, government collusion with corporations, abject poverty and homelessness, mass extinctions - it’s a long list barely begun here. It’s enough to leave one feeling hopeless in the face of such onslaughts. And yet there is hope.
The inimitable George Carlin, in one of his last stand-up routines, had the theme, "It's bullshit, and it's bad for you." So true in our world today. The bullshit and the bad. The source of both is the money. You can always follow the money. And where does the money lead? To those that have far and away the most: global corporations and their well-heeled controllers, uber-rich families, the elites of the world who have known nothing else, the Goldmans, the Rothschilds, the Saudi Royal Family, and any number of collaborators and government "servants" who share their misplaced priorities.
Well, geez, what a surprise. We're getting another serious lesson in sustainability. Oil doesn't qualify.
There is much talk about taxes in the U.S. these days, with the Tea Party Movement as the most vocal group outlining their disagreement with how our government raises and uses taxes. These folks are generally anti-tax, suggesting that the less we are taxed, the better. It's a Libertarian stance.
Others, often with some sort of social justice leanings, will decry some ways in which our taxes are used, normally for wars like Iraq and Afganistan, and others more against the whole militaristic bend of the U.S. government.
"Terrorism" is the perfect term to highlight the permanent war paradigm at this time. After all "Communism" or the "The Cold War" don't carry the weight they once did. And, once 'Terrorism' loses its convincing value, there will other threats thrust in our face to ensure we allow 500 billion dollars a year of our money to be used for U.S. Imperialism. And for those offended by such strong language I do not apologize. I ask that you open your eyes.
Welcome to World 5.0
And welcome to my blog on my favorite idea. This first entry is to intended to help you get your head and heart wrapped around this crazy notion of World 5.0 - that this moment is all that exists, and that the most valuable and entertaining way to spend it is in Love.
Well, gee, that was easy. Not.
Our 'leaders' spent over a year shoveling a big piece of crap together that's supposed to bring dramatic improvement to our healthcare system. Pardon my suspicion, I haven't read it, but I'm still convinced it's a big turd. Why? Because the profit motive has no place in maintaining and augmenting human health. Jesus made the comment that 'no man can serve two masters', and these companies, literally a cartel, are uninterested in making us, the citizens of the United States, their master.
