I am a new Poor Peoples Campaign Member…

Why have we allowed the Corporations and the rich to take over and pretty much rule the Planet?    Tell me friends,  where do the Wealthy find all that $$$$$?            Well, they pretty much gather it up from the regular everyday working Joe’s That is You and I my friends…      We must fill those empty Bellies,  we must have Clothes, new cars, computers, T.V.s a home to rest our weary heads in after a day spent waitressing, house keeping, running our selves ragged in one of good ole Amazons warehouses, where every moment of one’s working hours must be accounted for…Whilst earning perhaps seven or eight dollars an hour , as the Boss Man earns Ten Thousand or more for that same hour…Thus the modern form of slavery that from the time we’re infants we are brainwashed into believing that that is the way life is… Not many are able to free themselves from this conditioning,  How is one able to learn that life does not have to be this way,  when one is born into life of parents who were themselves unable to free themselves from the horrible cycle of poverty and ignorance…  The trap is carefully laid,  The rich have had centuries to design it, and the system is carefully protected from any interference by the likes of us… You  see, every man woman and child, would have to cooperate as ONE United Mind, to defeat this evil empire…  How do we show the Rulers who really has the power?    What do the rulers always need more of?    Money,  and since the money is produced only with our labor and our spending of our meager paychecks in their stores, their hospitals, the immense supply of goodies to buy,  provided by other slaves mostly in low wage countries, we must cut out the supply of Money…   this means:   Stock up on food, gas, medicine, and then for a week or a month, NOBODY shows up to work, NOBODY shops… When the flow of Money slows down     The rich will panic, threats will be made:  Back to Work or ELSE….The police will be thick on the streets, the Armies will be put on alert, But we must act as One Unified living force… We must be brave and say NO!        NO! NO! to slavery and humiliation…”It is better to die on your feet, than to live on your Knees.” Spanish Heroine in Spain’s civil war…Then we must learn that life works well when all men, women, and children live in Service to each other,  instead of slavery to the whims of those who believe only in profit, at the cost of poverty for the many and Riches for the few….                                                                                                                                 ……………………………..FOREWORD……………………………….                                                                                                                   “He said to the people, “Sing high.  Do not stifle the song in your heart.”   And the people said, “We are hungry, we sing low and sad.   He said to the people, ” Stand and demand.”   And the people said, “We are sick and we are tired.” He said to the people, “Know yourselves, there is glory in you.”  And the people said, “We know our burdens and frustrations, our problems and anxieties, our hardships and our suffering.”               “Are those in power like you?” He asked.   “Are they burdened and beaten?”  And the people said they are not, they are rich.  They are respected and honored.”        Then He said, ” They have taken your share and theirs, and allowed you a pittance.   That is not just.  Claim your rights.”   And the people said, “When we claim our rights, they jail us, they defame us; they ostracize us.”   He bows his head and says nothing.  The People bow their heads and say nothing.   The planet turns slowly toward midnight and despair.                                                                                                                                              Now He speaks again.  “Do not despair,” He says.        Creativity is on our side.  Love is on our side.  Beauty is on our side.  Truth is on our side.  Miracles are on our side.  We cannot lose.  Look at the stars, they dispel the blackness of the night.  They, too,  are on our side.  Stand up and celebrate.”  A fire runs through the people.  They clench their fists and raise their arms. “We will fight,” they say.   “We will demand our rights,” they say.  “We will achieve justice,” they say, “For ourselves and for all men.”                                                               By Sireo Esteve, from “The Experience, a Celebration of Being.”   Random House 1974…                      P.S. I quote from the “Experience,” because he states what I feel so much more eloquently than I ever could…. Love to all, Alaska Man Speaks…

Building the House of Mankind…

From “The Experience, A Celebration of Being” By Sirio Esteve..Random House 1974…..                      SLAVERY :                                                                                                                                   When the idea of service first emerged in life, It said, “Surrounding conditions are the law. Obey them or die.” Life obeyed and survived, for in obeying natural law it was served.            When men arrived, some men used the idea of service for personal gain. They said, “Obey and serve us and we will pay you.  Your survival depends upon it.”   Men obeyed and many died because the service was difficult and the payment inadequate…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               THAT IS HOW THE IDEA OF SERVICE DEGENERATED                                                                   INTO  THE IDEA OF SLAVERY…..                                                                                                                                                                                                                              ARE YOU BEHOLDEN TO ANYONE?                >          Of course.                                                      TO WHOM?                                                         >           To men.                                                          IN WHAT WAY?                                               >             In the way of service.                               BY COMPULSION?                                           >                No.                                                                  HOW,THEN?                                                  >                  In accordance with human need          TO WHAT END?                                            >                  The House of Mankind.                               CAN YOU BE CONVERTED INTO                                                                                                          ACTIONS WHICH DESTROY MANKIND? >                 No.                                                                    HOW DO YOU ESCAPE IT?                     >                      I am the experience that >>>>>>>                                                                                             amalgamates men.  When                                                                                                                   action becomes destructive                                                                                                                   I am annulled.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     *****                                                                                            Ego produced a slave society.  By ego men brutalize all things near them.

              Nothing touched by it escapes defilement except by withdrawal.                                                               Ego is a natural deficiency of immaturity that brutalizes ideas.                                                  End the debasement of mankind by ego.  Cleanse your ideas and yourselves by ending the slavery ego has instituted…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            *****                                                                                                  Slavery as men practice it is the most obscene idea of all.  By placing men in classes and compelling lowly placed men to obey highly placed men, it sanctions the distinctions  ” Superior” and “Inferior” and fosters the antagonisms natural to it.  No society stressing and exploiting class distinctions can bring the House of Mankind to completion…     Service as a universal feature appears in the interrelated dependence of    existences.  The various units of existence serve each other in ways which maintain the whole.  In this sense, the planets are restricted by their universal interrelation.  Life is restricted by it’s earthly environment.  Selfhood is restricted by it’s bodily location.                                  These positional restrictions pertain to the universal structure.  They maintain the structure and it’s characteristics.  The tendency is constructive.  It is not a case of one existence enforcing it’s will upon another.  It is a case of all existences working together to form a universe.  Ideas here function as they should function.  In men, ideas may become agents of personal ambition.   They may function to retard human development by building societies on slave foundations…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              *****                                                                              COME AND DO MY BIDDING.                                                                                                               YES SIR!                                                                                                                                                     YOU HAVE THE INSTRUCTIONS.FOLLOW THEM.                                                                            YES SIR!                                                                                                                                                    ATTENTION!                                                                                                                                            YES SIR!                                                                                                                                                     MARCH!                                                                                                                                                   YES SIR!                                                                                                                                                      SHOOT!                                                                                                                                                    YES SIR!                                                                                                                                                    WHAT IS THIS GAME CALLED?

How is he to have a place in the world if he does not own valuable things, such as a car, a home, a color television?  These possessions demonstrate that he amounts to something.  He must prove this to other men to gain their admiration and retain his own self respect. So he hires himself out to earn the money with which to buy his possessions…..                                                Of course he is a free man.  He does not have to work for anyone whom he does not choose to serve.  However, if he does not work, money will not be forthcoming.  Consequently he works for those who pay him best even when they pay little.   The money squeeze has placed hands on him.  The tightness of the hold is determined by circumstances.  Does the victim have dependents?  How old is he?  Has he been successful?   what economic situation prevails at the time?  Who rules the Nation?    These and other factors will determine the extent of the pressure, and the extent of the pressure will establish the degree of slavery…..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 *****                                                                                             Contemporary slavery works like a slot machine.  A man gives his service, out comes ninety-eight cents, minus tax.  Perhaps he can live on it.  Perhaps he cannot. That’s his problem….                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            *****                                                                                                 The externals of slavery have changed.   Such crudities as chains and balls have been abandoned,  Nowadays, slaves and non-slaves  dress alike except in the armed forces.  There  the degree of slavery is indicated by a uniform.  Employees in commerce and industry hardly realize the ignominy to which they have fallen.  They go back to the grind day after day, glad to have a job or position which meets the needs of their bellies and their egos.  That is slavery in the factory, the office, the assembly line, the transportation  system, in all activity related to business.                                                                                   In early slavery, a man worked for the benefit of his master.  For this he received food, clothing, housing and some leisure.  The binding factor  was obedience and work for the master who captured or bought him.                                                                                          In modern slavery, a man works for the benefit of his employer.  For this he receives the means with which to procure food, clothing, housing and some leisure.  The binding factor is to obey and work for his employer.  Indeed, a modern slave can change his employer at will.  He also receives better food, clothing, housing and leisure.  nevertheless, the relation is basically the same.  A man obeys and works for another man instead of working for himself or society.  To work under orders is an enterprise in which the material gain goes mostly to another places a man in a slave position.                                            The change which has occurred in the slave-master relation blinds most men to the remaining similarities.  Men born into a society having slavery as an established feature fail to perceive the actual situation, especially when care is taken to conceal it.  An industrial society must have BUYERS to remain SOLVENT.  Therefore, salaries must be sufficiently high to permit the buying of houses, cars, televisions, and other good things.  People having the means for these purchases will say, “We are free, we do as we like with our money.  If we don’t like our employer, we can seek another.”                                 This affirmation reveals the type of inculcation  foisted on our youth.  The prevalent concept of freedom favors egotism.  Men are free to rise above other men and exploit them.  They are free to build empires of their own.  They are free to perpetuate social structures which places masses of people in disadvantageous positions.  Here freedom is a prize to be won through inheritance, competitive confrontations, and egotistic dedications.  In this relationship, freedom, justice and equal opportunity for all are promises running counter to the mainstream of events.                                                                                     While this type of freedom remains, many will be pushed into slave positions because slavery has been INSTITUTIONALIZED and SANCTIONED.  There is no future for mankind in that..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            *****                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         LISTEN.                                                                    >               I am here.                                               CAN A MAN BE A SLAVE IF HE EATS                                                                                                  WELL?

Welcome to Alaska Man Speaks….

    I plan to discuss things that are on my little old mind, concerning making our planet more livable.   I take my inspiration from “The experience, a Celebration of Being”, by Sirio Esteve…Building the House of Mankind….         Being an old, well read mind I think I can speak freely and Honestly….Since I haven’t owned a T.V. set in 35 years I read instead.  I read a lot and attempt to stay objective about what I read…I, myself, find that about half of our population seems to thrive on  lies, deceit, greed and the lust for power…   This is very disappointing indeed…It’s  kind of like the wars going on now in Syria, Yemen…It is just fine to drop 500 or 1000 lb. bombs and all kinds of other evil weapons  and blow men, women, and children into tiny bits of flesh and bone,  but God Forbid!  Oh! how terrible they dared to use chemical weapons!   Hypocrites!  All of the weapons in use, use  chemicals.  What is Gunpowder?   What is White Phosphorus?   Let me say that the only happy people in war are the arms makers,  the more bullets are used the more they have to produce and sell for that Great God Profit….     Let the arms designers turn their talents to cleaning up the mess we have made of our one and only home planet…Enough for a first foray into the Blog Sphere…Praying for peace on Earth for all before I die…that is all….
