love and peace are our weapons

inside and outside, same, same….

my thoughts replaced by moving images

I am not a country, I am not a flag, I am not the answer. I am a series of questions on the road to the truth. Why do so many individuals feel powerless? Is it because they are poor? Is poverty anything to do with money? Is it wrong to question myself? Are many people really expecting some sort of messiah to satisfy their need?

I do know a few things that work for me. Be Kind. Be Creative. Be Inquisitive.

WATCH THIS: LISTEN TO THIS.

Writer, artist and activist Penny Rimbaud investigates the question; Is there a real world? in an intimate discussion with author, musician and Louder Than War founder John Robb. Filmed in front of a studio audience at the Lush Studio Soho.

“Democracy, are you adequately represented?”

As the G20 puppets debate our fate, do you feel adequately represented? This is how the NWO is feeding us “democracy” as a “control system”….

One of the idea’s being discussed by “democracy’s representatives” is how to control any public dissent or protest. As an example, they are using the G20 meeting to provoke and prod protestors. They are using many “agent provocateur’s” and riot police to convince the public, that they care for your safety. What they really want is more control, more militarized police, and a complete Global shutdown of our freedom.

They are also debating how to limit public access to the internet.

Do you feel that these people in the picture truly represent you?

I was heartened to see “1000 Gestalten” as a peaceful protest. Art should be used to Protest and Survive.

Here is a clip of one of our songs, “no soldier” from the album “waiting here for you” set to the brilliant performance art “1000 Gestalten”

G20 PROTEST (no soldier)

Subliminal inspiration?

I have a feeling we are growing into ourselves as human beings and starting to understand how to be. As I write, make music and create art, sometimes I later recognize what influenced me to do it. Sometimes it’s pretty obvious, other times it’s from deeper than I can explain but has a resonance within me. I have an early vague memory of being at Brian Jones funeral in my hometown of Cheltenham.

Here is an example of what I call a “subliminal inspiration”

tunnelmental 2010 (Brian Jones)

We see the problem, we need solutions.

Due to the dramatic rise in dystopian documentaries and books that depict a no hope scenario of mankind’s future, I have decided it is time for a reassessment of my life and purpose. I feel compelled to offer this short manifesto to the many people who are suffering from the collective idea that we are disempowered or unable to make a positive impact on society.

This beautiful planet on which we live is diverse and abundant, everything is provided for us, all of us. In our short history as the dominant species we have accelerated ourselves into a very dangerous position, we may even destroy this very planet that sustains us. Gross mismanagement of our resources is entirely to blame and a selfish, greedy few are continuing to propel us in that direction.

We must resist this greed, we must embrace our diversity, and we must find a way to work together and save our race from an early demise.

Our current options seem limited to a rapid response, mostly due to our late recognition of our collective problem. A problem that seems so great, as to make us feel small and insignificant. I resist that notion based on my own individual responsibility and the ability we all have to solve problems by increasing peace through love. I love humans; I am constantly reminded of our creativity and resilience, especially our capacity for love and our need for peace. I also see a dogged determination in many to just follow the leader and repeat the ranting’s of raving lunatic’s, I am aware of the absurdity entrenched in our current system of control. I am not blinded by it though, I am fully aware of the situation we are in, that is the reason for my writing this.

I have always been compelled to write, document and narrate what I see and feel, I do not fully grasp why, I am not even sure if it will make any difference to the outcome of our struggle for survival in an increasingly, oppressively ran, global society; I do know this though, I have to do it.

Whether or not we survive this sickness that runs through our society, I think that we owe it to those that may; we must resist the destroyers of beauty and be creative with our world. The solution I offer seems very simple and will be torn apart summarily by those who run this global system of control and also by the people who foolishly follow its dictates. I do not care for my individual survival; my concern is for the future of man, for I honestly believe we have tremendous potential as individuals and as a species.

I have grown to understand in very simple terms the important and not too complicated ways we can prosper as a race.

Firstly, we must recognize that we have a simple choice between love and fear; love conquers all and fear destroys all; not much of a choice really if we are to survive as a species.

Secondly, we must overcome our urge to blame anyone else, or our human nature. We must take full responsibility for our individual actions.

Third and most importantly, we must learn to love ourselves, for we are what will survive and thrive.

The solution I propose…

Free food. Free shelter. Free healthcare. Free education. Free for everyone.

There it is plain and simple.

Words and the way we use them…

There are words that slide their way into our everyday vernacular almost unnoticed. We hear them bandied about and use them unknowingly and often mistakenly. We even align ourselves with them without even thinking about it. Here is an example I have heard many times by politicians especially. In their normal condescending way they feel sorry for those marginalized and disenfranchised people affected by some tragedy or another.

franchise

enfranchise

disenfranchise

When you feel powerless, someone feeling sorry for you may feel good but if you truly feel disenfranchised then you are missing a very powerful meaning. You may not, as I have not, been franchised or enfranchised in the first place. I do not seek permission to be free, no authority, no government, no official has granted me this, I have always been and will always be free.

By the power vested in me I pronounce me free.

Do not feel powerless to learn, we have so many things to learn, it’s right there in front of you, the free internet. For now.

Love and Peace.

Inspired by listening…

I was busy learning an editing program for visuals whilst simultaneously listening to an audio recording by the brilliant speaker Alan W Watts http://www.alanwatts.com/

I found myself so influenced by his words, I made this instead.
