ELEVEN EASY WAYS TO BETTER YOUR COUNTRY'S LOT BY ACTIVISM
We did it. We hung with HEROES, men with BRAINS.
RADICAL SMARTIE PANTS - DEDICATED,Progressive,
DISCIPLINED, FEARLESS ACTIVISTS with VISION. And
then we went to the barricades to achieve our aims. We
got THE IMF and WORLD BANKS THE HECK OUT OF OUR HAIR!
Why do you suppose they put brain-murdering flouride in your drinking water and toothpaste? It kills brains you know. Alzheimerville. They do it because it keeps you sedated and stupid. Why do they flood your living room with idiotic reality shows, dance competitions, prime time crime and sports? Because immobility, passivity and stupidity are precursors of Alzheimers and they want you TWEAKED! Too fat and lethargic to be the SPIDERS who tie down the LION. Time to fight them."We have to condemn publicly the very idea that some people have the right to repress others. In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousandfold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers ... we are ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations." - Aleksandr SolzhenitsynThe first step in being part of the change is activism that is a PUBLICITY campaign against the law, the poison, the invasion of privacy. You do a grass roots CAMPAIGN using internet, websites, 'lists' to send multiple emails that INFORM, to in this case, get people to shun toxins either in water, food or in TV viewing, in government propaganda, so that the PEOPLE become wise, educated and healthy --as that is what it takes for the elevator to get to the top. Then you will become an activist a few minutes a day, like Thom Paine, Ben Franklin, Thom Jefferson. . That combo of brass and sass is the way that you can change the world so that your children never are left starving, uneducated, jobless and homeless so that they get sick --only to find they have no HMO.
The only way to assure that your children and grandchildren are never carried off to concentration camps for LOSERS is Activism which actually is quite easy and fun. What would it be like? How would we do it? EASY. TEN SIMPLE THINGS.
1.) PICK A HERO. Locate the most important liberal, tree hugging, noisy opinionated, angry vocal person in your city. Seek one who preferably has a degree and some name value, like a tenured professor at a college. Volunteer to work for him or with him. It takes two to four people to make the central core of an activism group. The reason? If one flags, the others pinch him, pick him up off the carpet, wake him up, remind him of how important this is. So nobody ends up flagging for long. The two or three of you join together to create the core of this activist's group. THEN, find your real hero, a well known personage who is a fiery Speaker. Sometimes he's already a crusader and his fame can carry him, sometimes he's just amazing at the podium and you hear of him thru the jungle drums. It's going to be some heroic University professor, history or economics, who has a record of preach-teaching the 'we are being colonized and don't know it' liturgy. He will be your Lenin or your Howard Beale (hero of "NETWORK" the Paddy Chayevsky film, one all activists should view. (The hero probably was named after Howard Roark in Ayn Rand's the FOUNTAINHEAD, Beale's signature catchphrase became famous: "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore." To locate this guy, ask students --who among their teachers fits that bill? Actually go to the university cafeteria and the two of you query the kids. Then, meet with that heroic teacher in his or her office or even in his classroom after class and ask him if he'd be willing to attend a single meeting of an activist's group and talk to a group at one of several dates, whichever is more convenient for him. He'll probably be able to give you a night he's always free, a Thursday night, maybe. As week-end nights even professors party.
2.) HERE IS THE CHURCH, HERE ARE THE PEOPLE. Go to a well located church, meaning directly in the middle of the city, an easy ride from all sides...and seek out the pastor. Tell him you have FAMOUS HERO UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR ready to give a talk on the standard 'What's wrong with America and the Fix." Can you use his room? You can pay if he wants. The group will be students, intellectuals and who knows, if the pastor says a few words, he may get more people in his parish. When the pastor says yes, and you have the room and the date set, at that point start putting up flyer-ads at every bulletin board, at progressive places, like gyms, healthfood stores, universities, junior colleges, book stores, Craigs List.
3.) HAVE "DESIGNER" MEETINGS, this doesn't have to be like the early Christians in the catacombs.
A. ) At the meeting, provide snacks, drinks, iced Hansen's Soda cans, a punch bowl (donation dish) Coffee, cookies, dip and chips. It makes things more festive and gets people to hook up, talk, link, meet, shake hands as there's something to do before you run to the parking lot. Assume that activists want to make friends and student aged People want to hook up.
b.) RECORD SPEECHES BY YOUR HEROES - "OUR LIVES END THE DAY WE BECOME SILENT ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTER" said Martin Luther King So let SOUNDS REIGN! And RAIN them down on all who will listen. Pass the speeches on! Audio tape the heroic figure's speech, video tape it also, if possible for a CD or U-TUBE showing later. Always put tons of ads in CINEMA dept of universities and attract film students. at meetings 'who is a film student?' get their name, phone number and visit them in their editing room, scope out their equipment. They will be your Spielberg. Do not shroud your group in silence. Make those videos that GO VIRAL! Zeitgeist made its producers 40 mil online! You can sell CD's of the expert's rousing speech for bargain basement prices to your website readers, which brings me to, GET A WEBSITE! BEST WEB HOSTS IN THE BIZ, 5$ a month, 15$ a year for the domain name. Be an ORG. Not a com. Not a net. My local FM PACIFICA station has incredible Radio shows. KPFK puts the archived shows on the internet to listen to. Just today I heard the bst analysis ever of How Wall Street ate America by the author of a new book. Les Leopold interview on his book "THE LOOTING OF AMERICA" on http://uprisingradio.org/home/
That show is with others on my fave FM station You can also hear AMY GOODMAN's DEMOCRACY NOW and many others on KPFK-FM
c.) GETTING TO KNOW YOU! Before and after the meeting, have a Guest Book manned by a staffer to tug at elbows, gather email addies 'for the next meeting, our next speaker, ' as you want to make future meetings easier. So value this "EMAIL TREE," rather than the 80's phone tree. Load that data into your PC and a back up PC or two, pals on the 'board,' so it doesn't get lost in any PC MELTDOWNS. Mail files to your YAHOO or GMAIL address if they don't erase for back up.
4.) GIVE MANY MORE MEETINGS. MINIMUM is ONCE A MONTH ! BETTER IS TWICE! Repeat this process dozens of times, finding a heroic, meaningful thinker/ speaker for every single classroom, until you have attracted dozens of listeners by using the heroic one's name, JOE WISEMAN, SOCIOLOGY/PSYCHOLOGY PROF AT UCLA, TALKING ON 'THE PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE of the COLONIZED PEOPLE". Jazz up the speech theme to the max, racheting its screws until it practically sizzles. Would 'colonized IDIOT' be better? Get it terse, angry and peppy and have it arouse indignation at first hearing.
5.) BE MATTHEW TO JESUS. VOLUNTEER to the heroic teacher to be his social secretary. To be a Volunteer is not hard work. They know you're giving a freebie and don't make you come in and dust their library, though I'd kill to be invited in to dust or reorganize my hero's library. I'd read/dust simultaneously. If you serve a great mind you actually do it by organizing his Public Relations, sending out copies of his book to editors to review...(It's easy to learn to DO PUBLIC RELATIONS) You can help him hustle his appearances nation wide for that new book, and set up meetings where he makes converts to the cause. I said, it's basically being Matthew to Jesus! Who wouldn't want ThAT job?
Sure, Life would be better if the heroic ones gave meetings weekly themselves and you could just direct your crowds of people to it, but you gotta hoe the row to get grapes. Split all work between the original three or four members of your crew. Phone trees, data files, Email addies. The hero figure has enough on his hands just being a HEROIC teacher at some University, writing his books. You be his Best Boy.
6) FIND GREAT FLICKS AND VIDEOS. For meetings where you don't have heroic speakers, your group meets and will watch 'smart' films . Click on a list of best Hollywood films from last 7 yrs. Or a longer list Also those new, trendy ones, conspiracy theories, Zeitgeist, Michael Moore's many movies, Aaron Russo's Cannes festival film, Zeitgiest, etc. hitting the clicker & pausing the flick to make comments, to elucidate, educate and rivet the kiddies with RELEVANCE. Tie it into the current reality so they get the full picture. Don't worry, you aren't making Lenins of the future if all the mummies and daddies do it. You're making the Future a safe place for a million Lenins is all!
7) Create some kind of habit related to spotting juicy conspiracy related, tell-all articles online, picking the text up, throwing in a graphic and mailing out to your list. But at meetings, show members how to do online activism. Ferinstance, everyone get on YAHOO lists of 'special interests' I find the frugal people at Yahoo discuss the economy. So I GO FRUGAL. There can be 2,400 members on just ONE LIST. That's a big group who reads what you send! So you occasionally send out a description of what's at the URL and of course the URL to that file, not the htm file itself, --with some text, like 'hey, we're talking about high price of utilities, did you read this link and write out the entire link ...on how utility cutoffs are freezing families to death? Some families lit fires and burn the apartment building down.' You are seeking to inform strangers across the continent as well as audiences in your own city. Demand a city fund for utility cut offs, maybe, as HEAP is no good it's only once in two yrs they will help out! Also point these 2,400 people to URL where some neat webzines are... Now, send your informational stuff out daily. Get a list of editors of ezines, make a special list called EDITOR with dozens of names in it. Hit them, too. Get published online. Who knows, you may be a writer.
8) BE A PROPHET IN YOUR OWN HOME. Pass every single paper to your own children by email, then quiz them at dinner. IF they're abashed, didn't read it, let it go, but don't stop quizzing them. They'll hate the failure rate and start reading the things. They'll soon read the articles, urls cover to cover. Eventually they'll be impassioned, if Daddy & Mummy are! Children always listen to Mum or Dad if there's TRANSFERENCE as Freud called it. LOVE. If there's love, those kids will never go wrong, if your pipeline to them is filled with useful, wise info.
9). KEEP AN EYE PEELED FOR THE ENEMY. If you're good, your reward is that they'll send an agent provocateur to penetrate your midst, sowing weird ideas, dangerous projects, fanning flames of rage and impatience so that somebody,-- it only takes one,-- makes a real stupid move. Ever seen one member of a picket or protest do something really weird that gives all of you a bad name? That's the GOV GUY! See TRICKS to handling him! And remember, TYRANNY loves being opposed so smooth out in all your approaches to pickets, protests. Now, if you do nothing wrong and a Cop knocks someone unconscious, burns his camera, you SUE and MAKE A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY, so carry every broken Camera you own and point it at cops so that you can get HIT/ KNOCKED AROUND, EQUIPMENT that you have receipts for all smashed. PRO BONO lawyers fresh out of law school ABOUND.
10) WILL TRADE FOOD FOR SOPHISTICATED PC TECH!! Chinks in your software or PC tricks education? MAKE A REALLY FINE DINNER FOR a COMPUTER TEKIE! How did this little old lady here learn so many PC tricks? Actually website and online maneuvers are SOOO easy anyone could teach you in five minutes. I spot a PC tekkie I say, "sonny, what's your dream dinner? Roast Beef? Cherry Pie? I'll do your fave meal and read your palm and horoscope both, you just come teach me how to FTP or insert graphics. As I write this, I have a famous L.A. Chiropractor trying to figure out what day he can come out here to the boonies where I live to show me USB's CD BURNERS. Also on your list to learn is 'bookmarks, editing bookmarks, lists, htm files, inserting graphics, FTP (file transfer protocol) skills.' Downloading freebie software.
11.) PICKET like your LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. CUZ IT DOES! The IMF and FED RESERVE have been printing money to cover Vietnam, The Cold war, Iraq, Afghanistan and a few little wars sandwiched in there, huge losses. The future has been called off. Your children's economic lives depending on mastering the art of picketing and its many sidecar classrooms, like 'Theatrical Prop 101,' which is making dramatic effigies and props to carry in a demonstration. (SALIENT SIGN MAKING) Placards that rock. Next, Learn how to DISGUISE YOURSELF, to AVOID DETECTION by Gov cameras, especially AFTER an accidentally VIOLENT DEMONSTRATION. Last year, Brit STUDENTS broke GLASS WALLS of a CONSERVATIVE PARTY BUILDING. These politicos had tripled college tuition. Cops of course had photos. 70 websites quickly offer advice on how to change one's looks to avoid arrest. Instantly, the BRIT GOV CLOSED DOWN those 70 WEBSITES. ACTIVISTS take NOTE! Disguise your faces. See: http://www.luckinlove.com/avoidarrest.htm That's about it! Get all your website visitors to sign up to get on more private lists.

[Note: Not all internet servers allow emailings of larger address book type
listings. You may want to set up a separate email account on one of the
free servers like Hotmail, etc. One activist noted the convenience of such an
account for his own mails, which allows up to 50 blind bcc’s to be sent per
email, and several hundred can be sent per day, enabling activists to stay
in touch with many other activists.]
QUESTIONS we are studying currently at the ISSUE INDEX PAGE
ENERGY CORPORATIONS SCREWING THE PLANET? Looked at your UTILITY BILLS lately? Add it up for a year. G'wan. We dare you. How about UTILITY COMPANIES DOUBLING the price of water, electricity which you'll spot if you get bills from a few years back. They doubled natural gas to California the day their protector 'W' got re-elected. THE VERY DAY!
Next, add in GASOLINE costs for your S.U.V. What were you thinking when you bought that ton of bolts? You want Obama to make war on oil rich countries in your S.U.V's name? That's what IRAQ was about. AFGHANISTAN proposed SITE OF A massive PIPELINE FOR RUSKI OIL TO COME gurgling into america from RUSSIA? Did you bear your baby sons just to get them SHOT UP OR BOMBED so that SHELL #&%(#@ OIL can make more trillions and charge you up the wazoo to run the PILE OF BOLTS?
Was there a CIA connection to 9-11, and is the US media suppressing it? AND OTHER ISSUES. Below are mainstream European media reports w/URL sources, that beg for a full investigation of this. Please read the 9 summary reports below, then act!
FOOD WASTE AT SUPERMARKET. 15% goes to the trash. THEY HAVE to start sharing it with POVERTY AGENCIES that feed homeless!
HIGH UTILITY RATES from "FOR PROFIT" Corps. These should be nationalized in areas with extreme weather. Encourage Utility companies not to do disconnects. Someone dies, they are instantly nationalized.
The SUCCESS of this effort depends on EACH of us dedicating ourselves to ACTIVISM one half hour a day, maybe an hour ---for the next few weeks at least, and URGING others we pass this Activist Kit onto to do the same! US is media is suppressing and or ignoring all these issues, all this information. It can only get to people through the efforts of you and I
DO PUBLIC RELATIONS. When you get good, you can do it for small businesses for big moola. USE THE BIG LIST OF MEDIA PEOPLE in our ACTIVIST KIT. If you find a non-working email write anita at astrology at earthlink net and tell me,I'll change it ONLINE, ftp your new info to my website. That changes the file. BTW, you should learn to FTP and other net tech, the basic stuff. All at WEBSAVVY TIPS. Fax and email out THE MESSAGE on HEALTH CARE or WAR, OR GENOCIDE OF MUSLIMS, OR WTC 911 being a BLATANT FALSE FLAG CIA OP... And clearly mark as such and send to all the contacts you have and all the reporters you can find. SPEND YOUR HALF HOUR just digging up reporters email addies. That's enough for one day.
THEN network this entire Activist Kit (meaning the ACTIVIST's EASY BREEZY TIPS file which has 50 OTHER subordinate FILES WITHIN IT one with all the JOURNALISTS' addies,) sending it out as far and wide as you possibly can, to churches, activist groups, etc. etc. (use internet search engines,
yahoo, google, msn, etc. to find more and more and more contacts of such activist groups and institutes of conscience to send this to and ask them to act and to spread the word).
We must create a ROAR of demand for these issues to be fully investigated, or the media and congress will never have the courage to do so. Spread the Activist Kit out to get hundreds of others to use it, and then use it and the FAX and email numbers to get the below message out yourself.
MORAL SUPPORT- Free thinking writers at times are a little frightened to speak up. Elected Democrat representatives often are afraid too. The most vociferous Senator & opponent of the fascist right wing (BUSH) who was sure to win in an election got his family and himself shot out of the sky. So did JFK JR who would have been Senator shortly. A State Senator gal got herself and mate shot to death as she was going after pedolphile rings working with Child Protective services. These progressive politicos need us to praise, show gratitude, flood them with love letters, volunteer to be story-senders, also to hype them in the media, to give them the courage to do what they can do.
