I feel sometimes like a lot of the is so quiet that it's Message.In.A.Bottle Social Media and communications.. That you can post a message, and send it out there, and someday - maybe - someone may find it.

For those who stubbornly seek freedom around the world, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination.

Has anyone else heard way too much talk lately about people and groups needing to "assimilate"?
What? no.

America is not a melting pot - that is a violent metaphor, where different things go in and are violently rendered the same.

America is a salad bowl, where we unite, share, mix and mingle, but are still ourselves.

No one should assimilate. They never should have

The ADL Center on Extremism is the foremost authority on extremism, terrorism and , both foreign and domestic. We provide resources, expertise and trainings that enable law enforcement officers, public officials and community leaders, as well as internet and technology companies to identify and counter emerging threats.

The Anti-Defamation League is a wonderful, wonderful organization and I encourage everyone to become familiar with their work

One of my favorites is the ProPublica Documenting Hate series (2 going on 3 parts) with great interviews with historical experts, etc.

Most Modern Technology is consumerism and sales focused, entertainment, or military. Almost none of it is sustainability focused, health, or humanity. Continued overconsumption of this capitalist model of destruction of the earth and humans leads to nothing good, at all

Who were the Luddites? | The Battle of Rawfolds Mill 1812

"In this video, filmed at The National Archives, we look at Luddism and the attack on Rawfolds Mill in 1812. Who were the Luddites? What were they trying to achieve? How did mill owners protect their property? Find out as we delve into the records at Kew."

Overdependency on technology is not just killing the earth, nature, and humans, but Humans are losing their knowledge of nature, and reality. New generations know nothing. They do not even know, or understand, who or what they are.

Overdepedency on technology has created ignorance, and now a fear of nature, and reality.

Humans are becoming afraid of nature, the wild, animals...
And themselves.

Humans do not know themselves or understand themselves anymore, and now fear themselves.

Does anyone have any good ideas about how to teach people about or spread the word? How to introduce the idea to people? It seems almost no one in the USA has ever heard of it, I'm trying to get them interested :) Thanks!!

Healthcare; municipalism; social ecology; communalism; COVID-19 

"By combining the latest practice and theory, we have the potential to develop a functional health system that serves the community and values healthcare workers. Yet this requires a reconstructive and radically democratic approach. A just healthcare system is one without managers or leaders, organized at the grassroots level by patients, their families, care workers and the communities that we serve. This sort of system is based on the ideals of communalism, through which autonomous communities cooperate through a confederation to self-govern all aspects of shared daily lives."

The American Anti-Corruption Act makes it illegal to purchase political influence and puts power back in the hands of the people. Passed in several jurisdictions, we need to work to get it passed in all of them.

@shmarra "Anarchy, — the absence of a master, of a sovereign, — such is the form of government to which we are every day approximating, and which our accustomed habit of taking man for our rule, and his will for law, leads us to regard as the height of disorder and the expression of chaos. Every question of domestic politics must be decided by departmental statistics; every question of foreign politics is an affair of international statistics. " - Proudon

@shmarra "— that is, for a scientific government. And just as the right of force and the right of artifice retreat before the steady advance of justice, and must finally be extinguished in equality, so the sovereignty of the will yields to the sovereignty of the reason, and must at last be lost in scientific socialism. Property and royalty have been crumbling to pieces ever since the world began. As man seeks justice in equality, so society seeks order in anarchy."
