As OWS staggers around the world, gathering some momentum, some direction and thus some ability to do itself great harm, as a collective. All the signs of police brutality show that they can turn it up a long way yet. So far, only thuggery has been on display. They have microwave heaters and sub and super sonic sound cannons to drive you to distraction.

Gathering in such masses, leads only to one result, it is in-evitable. Somewhere, an accident will result in a tragic loss of life….you know the rest of the script.

Of course the ONLY way to kill the beast is to starve it. And expose it to the light.

Really simple. STOP consuming anything but local. Local local. Do without. With less. And steadily withdraw all your money from the beast. Why bother closing accounts? There are rules within rules and hidden clauses in those micro-typed bank legalese you signed when opening your account.

Don’t travel. The masters traversed the universe of endless wonder within. Go home. Build your defenses for a cold winter coming. Surprise them. Melt away. That way, they’ll never know when you might re-group. Keep the element of surprise with you, don’t fall into their newtonian, battering ram trap. They like fights like this. They are fighters.

You be warriors, fight the battle with-in. If the time and circumstance comes, be ready to be a warrior, not a chanter and a fighter.

Never under-estimate your opponent.

Flow with their force. They will fall over each other in a heap.

If you need a rallying cry, let me give you one.

We are all ruled by symbol. Word comes after. Symbol first.

The symbol of the psycopathic male arche-type is the Suite and Tie. If it’s a suit and tie, it’ll probably lie. The tie, a self-slipped knot on the throat, never able to speak wholly or the truth. Look at the action. It is such a tell, yes? And the suit, always, at the hands of a good tailor, make a fat, florid person look like superman. Well almost. It’s a lie. The suit and tie clothe the lie.

The symbol of corrupted capitalism to me. Neck choke, body enslaved, restricted, uncomfortable, habit engrained…..look at Conan and Jon Stewart  and MLK and all politicians and business heads and mafiosos and every wannabe…. on TV, every pundit/analyst…. suite and tie. Burn them, rip them….remove the yoke of the symbol.

It is really powerful.

Ladies, I’d like you to consider lipstick.

Look at it, look at the symbolism of it…. a red tip sliding out of a round sheath, promptly put to your lips.

Perhaps a picture will suffice:

Eh? Enough said? It’s that obvious.

Ecologically dispose your lipsticks and never wear one again.

Symbols are that powerful.

Just an idea.

Good luck all around. Going to need it.

I’ve been tie-free since 2003 and lipstick-free for-ever.

    could not agree more , starve the beast and question authority.

    have spent a lot of time restrucuring assets recently to starve the beast. I got certain “SIGNS” about a month ago or a little longer that were quite clear to me and
    I am certain we have passed some catalyst events and there is no turning back from major changes unfolding right now but in slow motion because PRAVDA is still capable of many illusions, so few see it ? Many are and have been fooled and are basicly asleep/hypnotized because everything seems to be still functioning as always to them. The truth/facts are a very different story . Prepare while you can in whatever way you can. It has all been explained in considerable detail ad nauseum. Good luck to all !

      I reposted that video, powerful statement, agree or disagree with the nuances of his stance.

      And I think the wake up call,
      It’s coming to us all! Like it or not! no alarm, just wake up, eh?
      Thanks as always, for sharing.

    I am happy to report that I haven been neither a white collar nor a blue collar worker for more than three decades. As a self-employed music store owner I am an uncollared worker who has worn mostly t-shirts to work since day one. Our dress code has been simply…no ties! In the immortal words of Kinky Friedman, “Railroad ties, are not my friend, the only ties that bind.”

      Excellent! A music store eh? Hmmmmmm……. brings back memories of Bananas at Large, San Rafael….. good people, they let me come everyday and pretend I was going to buy one of their $10,000 Martin’s in the special, climate controlled room. Always came and gave me Demos. Great memories. I’d usually buy a shaker or an egg or some such once every other week, feeling guilty. 🙂

      Do you carry the Handsonic? HPD-15? Crazy instrument!

      And thanks for that quote, priceless.

    Bananas at Large V ?
    Yeah…..I bought an “Astatic” there once.
    Did you like the “Good Earth” too ?
    ….and how about…..Marin Joes !…..Oh Yeah !
    TIES ?…..I vaguely remember a historical
    re-construction of the origin of those things…..
    Something to do with the tie being a very
    deliberately constructed symbol of a……..NOOSE !
    A little reminder of just “Whom” one belongs to ! mmmm.
    In-sight on LIGHT !
    The story below is about lights in Detroit…..but it could be
    any city…..anywhere… the cost of electricity soars,
    which it will.
    A snip from the Detroit article.
    “City officials estimate 15-20 percent of the 88,000 lights
    in the Motor City are not working, and they acknowledge that
    figure could be as high as 50 percent in some neighborhoods.
    …..Read more here////
    The fear is of CRIME !
    Crime…..seems so entwined with Light.
    It is curious, that we are still so afraid of the dark.
    A primal fear.
    Everything is looking for a meal out there !
    Fight or Flight !
    Since we have no street lights here,
    we go out on our front porch at night,
    and take a good look at what is currently going on
    in the local Cosmos !
    I wonder at how many people NEVER see the stars.
    …….tis enuf to make ones bones ache !

      An Astatic eh? I had to go look that one up Brother Ray. Beautiful, are you a muse-ician too? And Yes yes, Good Earth. i have to admit to having “tasted” more than my fair share of their excellent offerings. Good stuff, great energy. The check-out conversations were epic. 🙂 Good memories. Marin joes too…. what a place and for me, what a time.
      Tie = noose. No doubt about it. So powerful and every morning, like slaves, men throttle themselves for another day at the lying machine.

      And re. light, I’d written this a long time ago, perhaps worth a read? Same idea…

      Here is to darkness and light, each in their own space and time. How about that? For all things a season etc., eh?

      Thanks for sharing your inner space so playfully. Brah! 😉

        Hi V
        Got in to playing the Blues after
        I turned 50………Harps.
        Had about 50 of those too.
        Got a “Slo Mo” …slowed the pitch of tunes
        way down, so I could RIP the licks.
        Little Walter would have rolled over in his grave.
        But it was fun.

        These days….I just listen to the wife play Gurdjieff
        on the Piano……she used to play the
        “movements” music for the Gurdjieff House in S.F.
        I also really got into the Native American Flute….
        had a few of those too…..great instruments,
        but the fire took em all…….that’s another story !
        These days…..I just bark along with the Dogs !
