THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS 2018

Each year in the Christmas period I like to write a blog about the spirit and energy of Christmas in that particular year. Christmas means something to me as some sort of Christian. This years Christmas spirit is almost certainly based on the theme of future uncertainty.

Here in the UK this uncertainty is based on the elites plans to try and sabotage the the democratic mandate to leave the EU. Also the possibility of another UK general election next year.

On the world stage most people I feel sense that another 2008 economic crash is on the way. They sense that the present economic foundations is based on sand. In fact one major economic think tank has predicted such a crash in 2020.

Also on the international stage President Trump seems to be looking for a war with Iran. He also seems to be stepping up the ante with Russia and China. So sadly a 2019 military clash cannot be entirely ruled out. Very worrying times indeed.

Personally I feel that people should face up to this future uncertainty directly at Christmas. Try and meditate,sense the real being below your ego. Also try and do some good deeds and get involved in campaigns for political and social change. But perhaps most importantly try and have some fun over the Christmas period and on new years eve.

My next blog to be published just before 31/12/2018 will be about what will happen in 2019?

God bless you all and best wishes for the future.

A BOOK REVIEW OF, DAVID RAY GRIFFIN. THE AMERICAN TRAJECTORY. DIVINE OR DEMONIC?

David Ray Griffin is best for his book the New Pearl Harbour. Which casts doubt on the official account of the attacks on the World Trade Center building in New York on 11/9/2001.

However his latest book called the American Trajectory Divine or Demonic published by Clarity Press is a book of outstanding Brilliance. A book which shows the both American was created on violence and American world power is based on using violence and aggression against other countries.

He shows that the country was founded on the extermination of the indigenous native American population. Estimated at about ten million people when the Europeans first invaded the country in the 16th century. But only 228.000 in 1890.

He shows how after independence was achieved from Britain the country quickly became an imperialist power. The Monroe doctrine of the 1820,s stated that only the USA could colonize the America,s.

The author shows the growth of American aggression with the invasion of the Philippines in the 1890,s in which 250,000 Filipinos died. But also the invasion of Cuba which was made a USA colonial state until 1959.

After the first world war he shows the further growth of American imperialism and support for fascism. President Harding support for Mussolini in Italy in the fight against communism. Also America supported the dictatorship established in Hati and the Somoza fascist dictatorship in Nicaragua.

The author also then shows that it was the fact that Europe was ruins after world war which led to American world dominance.

He quotes James Byrne the war minister who stated that the nuclear attacks on Japan were really meant to subdue the USSR. Mr Griffin shows that Japan was prepared to discuss surrender if the emperor could stay on the thrown.This was rejected before the nuclear attacks took place but was accepted by America after the attacks took place.

The author shows how the cold war really started because the USA rejected the USSR request of reparations from Germany. He quotes George Kennan who stated that America must achieve world dominance by any means necessary.

He also shows how the USA supported fascism to keep its power over other countries that threatened American corporate interests. Supporting fascist coups in Guatemala in 1954, Brazil in 1964, Indonesia in the 1960,s and Chile in 1973 and other countries as well.

Mr Griffin also shows how the Vietnam war was caused by the USA breaking the 1954 Geneva agreement to hold all Vietnam elections by July 1956. Which Eisenhower admitted that the National Liberation Front led by Ho Chi Minh would win 80% of the vote. Instead they set up a separate dictatorial state in South Vietnam which led to the tragedy of the Vietnam war which led to the eventual American defeat in Vietnam in the mid 1970,s.

He also shows how after the collapse of the USSR instead of accepting a peace dividend through big defence cuts the USA started to make plans for world global dominance. The 1992 New Defence Strategy Guidelines for global dominance.Also the Project for the new American century document of 1997.

This was followed by wars in Iraq 1991, Yugoslavia and Iraq 2003 which eventually turned into an American defeat. Towards the end of the book he shows how America has suffered military setbacks in Ukraine and Syria which has shown up American invincibility.

He then shows how the country has become a declining economic power. Its global shared of the world economy dropped from 40% in 1960 to 17% in 2017. He also shows how China will soon become the worlds top economic power.

At the end of the book he quotes a USA National Intelligence Council document which states that by 2030 no country will have global hegemony. Alas I personally do not think that the USA and its western allies will accept an end to their global hegemony. So a military conflict with Russia and China is quite possible.

In conclusion this is a brilliant must read book. Buy it.

Best wishes to all for the future.

BOYCOTT THE HYPOCRITICAL 11/11/18 COMMEMORATIONS OF THE END OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR.

On the 10/11/2013 I wrote a blog called the negative energy of Remembrance Sunday. This blog was written about ten months before the 100th anniversary of the start of the first world war. Now on the 11/11/2018 we will be asked to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war.

Todays blog to be blunt is being written in much more worrying times than the blog written on the 10/11/13. In fact the world of today is in many ways very similar to the period building up to August 1914 when the first world war started.

Firstly the new super cold war between the western block and the Russia, China alliance and its allies like Iran. In the next year or so I expect a hate campaign to be started in the west against China by the western corporate media similar to the hate campaign against Russia. A key recent event is President Trump withdrawing from the 1987 nuclear weapons treaty with Russia.

Secondly the hypocrisy and double standards today which were also prevalent in 1914. We went to war to defend gallant Belgium a country which exterminated ten million Congolese Africans in the 1900s. There is no holocaust memorial to the Congolese today.

Also after the Bolshevik revolution in Russia they published the secret treaties before the first world war. In which Russia was to get some Turkish territories and the allied powers were to be given some German colonies.

In the period up to 1914 there was a constant hate campaign in the British media about the threat from Germany. For instance Erskine Childers book the riddle of the sands a fiction story about a German invasion of Britain. Today there is a similar hate campaign against Russia a country whose defence expenditure is only ten percent of America,s and is totally surrounded by the western powers.

As in 1914 there was a hypocritical double standards. Then Britain had a repressive empire. But at the same time raged against German aggression. Today Britain rages about the Skripal affair without providing any hard evidence of Russian involvement. But at the same time turns a blind eye to Saudi Arabia,s actions in the Yemen and also helps to try and cover up the murder of the Saudi journalist in the Saudi embassy in Turkey.

Personally I put the chances of a world war between the western bloc and Russia/China at about fifty per cent in the next three years or so. The reason for this is that as in 1914 they saw a rising Germany as a threat to British world hegemony. Today there is the rise of China which American imperialism sees as a threat to its plans for world domination. The western corporate elite it seems are not prepared to accept an equal multi polar world with Russia/China.

Of course there is also the arms industry.The American economy is dominated by the arms industry. So it needs constant wars to keep going.

So in conclusion I say ignore the hypocritical official commemorations on the 11/11/18. Instead on the day reflect on our present world. Then take positive action by getting involved in campaigns against wars and oligarchical corporate capitalist rule and also help to build a new world based on peace justice and equality.

Best wishes to all for the future.

BEING A FREE AUTHENTIC INDIVIDUAL

This blog is my 300th published blog. So it is very much something to celebrate. Since this blog was first published in 2011 it has been very much about human freedom,justice, world peace and social equality. Also exposing the secret plans of the war mongering corporate elite. So it is only right that the 300th published blog should be about being a free authentic individual who thinks and works things out for themselves and does not full for the narrative and propaganda of the ruling elite.

There are two levels of being a free authentic individual. Firstly on the day to day life level. I would suggest totally avoiding the corporate media. Do not watch the news on BBC, or any corporate media outlets. I would also recommend not reading corporate newspapers.

I would strongly urge people to obtain their news from alternative internet media outlets. I would urge people to use their discretion when reading news on alternative internet outlets. Does the news story seem too far fetched is there any evidence to back the story up?

The second level to being a free authentic individual is on a spiritual or psychological level.I would strongly urge people to read Eckhart Tolle book a New Earth. This shows that by meditating and concentrating on the exact moment and not the future and past you can see and become the free authentic being below your egoic self and thoughts.

The ego is your present thoughts and emotions which can lead you astray. Give you grandiose aims that stop you being effective in your every day life. Whilst if you can get in touch with you true being below your ego you will be much better equipped to deal with every day life and also to fight for social change.

I would also strongly urge people to avoid recreational drugs and if possible abstain from alcohol.

In conclusion I expect the next two years to be very crucial for the human race. This blog will be very much on the side of those fighting for justice, peace and human freedom. My next two blogs will be on the hypocrisy of the November 2018 commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war. Then after that a review of David Ray Griffin new book American Trajectory.

Best wishes to all for the future. God bless you all

THE BIZARRE POLITICAL STRATEGY OF THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA.

In this latest blog I look at the strange political strategy of the Democratic Socialists of America, the countries largest socialist political organization. Which involves working inside the anti socialist corporate fascist war mongering American Democratic Party.

The DSA was founded in the early 1980, by Michael Harrington. It has its roots in the American Socialist Party, which stills exists today.

Harrington said that Democratic Socialists in America should work as a faction in the ‘left wing’ of the Democratic party. Despite the fact that the party is totally controlled by corporate finance.

The DSA endorsed the Presidential campaigns of both John Kerry and Barack Obama. Despite the fact that both candidates are both war mongers and supporters of corporate fascism.

Three DSA members won primary elections to be the Democratic Party candidates in the 2018 congress elections in America. Astonishingly won of the candidates Alexandria Ocasio Cortes issued a twitter feed praising the war monger John McCain just after his death. She stated’ McCain legacy represents unparalleled example of human decency and American service’. Try telling that to the half a million Iraqi,s killed by American and Western imperialism in the 2003 Iraq war.

In fact I think Cortes twitter gives the game away.The Democratic Socialists of America is a fake socialist organization. It supports free health care but does not appear to support nationalization. I suspect that the DSA has been heavily influenced by the American deep state. So as to draw Americans angry about the injustices of the country into the dead end of the American Democratic Party which is totally controlled by corporate finance.

What such Americans should be doing instead is forming a new progressive labour based party free from corporate control.

In conclusion if as I suspect such a new party is not formed by the time of the 2020 presidential election. Then American socialists and progressives should vote for the presidential candidate of either the Peace and freedom Party or the American Socialist Party.

Best wishes to all for the future. My next blog will be my 300th published blog surely something to celebrate.

HOW TO STOP THE RISE OF THE ENGLISH DEFENCE LEAGUE

The zionist/fascist English Defence League have certainly caught the headlines in the last few months. Holding a fifteen thousand strong football lads alliance demonstration in Central London. This has included an outrageous attack on the assistant general secretary of the RMT trade union Steve Headley. Interestingly like most far right groups in Britain the EDL are zionist and pro Israel. In this blog I will analyse why the EDL have grown in influence and what we need to do to defeat their influence.

The main reason for the growth in the EDL in Britain and other far right groups in Europe is the crisis in both the left and the economic system. Many fake left politicians support neo liberalism and privatization. Also they have an obsession with adopting a pro EU stance. Even if this means adopting the European Union,s anti working class, pro neo liberal pro privatization policies. This alas is not just a British phenomenon but applies to other EU countries like Greece and Spain.

However despite their growth I still think that the EDL are largely a paper tiger. They have little chance of becoming a mass political movement in Britain. I still think that the major fascist threat in this country and other EU countries is the silent corporate fascism from the globalist,conservative,liberal and fake left political party,s. With their aim of establishing a globalist dictatorship where national elections become meaningless and international trade treaties ensure compulsory neo liberalism and privatization whatever the result of national elections.

Of course we must still defeat the EDL. But this requires a two pronged fight firstly against the EDL and secondly against the fake left groups and party,s who support globalism,neo liberalism and privatization.

We should firstly organize demonstrations against the EDL. But we should also be campaigning in our local communities to promote class politics and socialist policies.

However the key aim must be to develop the correct policies and political programme. This must include an anti globalist left programme based on the ideas of the Greek anti globalist socialist Takis Fotopoulos.

This would include support for a socialist brexit. Defence of national democracy against the corporate fascist EU and its fake left supporters. Also public ownership a massive council house building programme. Also a massive increase in public spending, trade union rights and decent wages for all. In other words a class politics working class socialist programme.

Personally I do not trust Momentum the pro Corbyn faction in the Labour party. As many of them seem to be pro globalist, pro EU. I still feel that we need an alternative socialist party to the Labour party.

In conclusion I am confident that with the correct policies the EDL and other far right groups can be defeated.

Best wishes for the future to all.

COUNTDOWN TO SACRED SEPTEMBER

This latest blog is about the approach to September which as will I explain is a month of great importance spirituality and also is of great personal importance in our lives.

September I must confess is my favourite month of the year.I once wrote a poem about September.

It is a time to take stock of the year so far. It is the bridge between Summer and Winter, the start of the real change in the seasons weather and the start of the countdown to Christmas.

But I also feel that September has a more important function. Besides being a time to take stock of your life. I also feel that it is the time of the year to analyse your life and see what improvements you can make in your life and how you can try and help make the world a better place.

I would suggest that you seat down and meditate for twenty or so minutes. Then examine your year so far and see what changes you want to make in your life. Perhaps you want to start meditating on a regular basis. Or perhaps start doing some voluntary work or else get involved in a peace group and anti war campaign.

Best wishes to all for the future.
