picture Cool forward I received yesterday -- and it still works:
"Read this carefully. It's really well done. Try it ASAP, before Google Fixes its site:

1) Go to

2) type in (but don't hit return): "weapons of mass destruction"

3) Hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button, instead of the normal "Google search"button

4) READ very carefully what appears to be a normal error message

 A Book that Can Change Things.
picture Gothic Image Publications has just published Palden Jenkin's re-write of Healing the Hurts of Nations. I went to the launch party last Saturday Night at the Gothic Image bookstore on Glastonbury's High Street. I am deeply moved by this book and inspired by the potential impact it can have on the confusing and deeply complex issues of globalization, as well as helping those like myself who truly do get the deeper issues at stake in the world today, and yet still would appreciate the dialogues this can encourage to bring forth in our communities and salons. I ask all NCN'ers to not only buy it, read it, but also to help bring it forth. Futurists and those connected-in with book-reviewing... let me know as I am going to help the PR on this one.

Palden's message is accessable, articulate, deeply moving and vital. We stand at a threshold. To know, to truly know, the human side -- is the only side we can be on... now there is a challenge the information in this book can help us face, feel and understand...

About the book, from the HHN web site:
"This is a new look at the human aspect of today's international affairs. Many people are deeply concerned about developments in the news and seek to understand the meaning of it all. This book offers insights into the deeper significance of what's going on and what we can do about it.

It is a wide-ranging book that steps back and takes a long view of human history and the coming century. It looks into the collective psyche and the heart of humanity, the way they operate, and the conflict between the 'official view' and public intuition, conscience and feeling.

The book features the vital missing, yet central, elements in globalisation: people, nations and cultures.

Healing the Hurts of Nations first examines group identity, and the underlying dynamics of belief, fear, guilt, misunderstanding and hope that underlie national and international relations. Then it lifts a few rugs in the areas of globalisation, civilisation, leadership, national interest and the imprints of the past. In part three it highlights four countries to see how their histories affect their current situation - Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Britain and Iraq.

Part four examines an emergent 21st Century agenda, which shows itself through current events and offers the world definitive options at every stage. Given the scale of problems ahead, how will we break through? Finally, part five suggests contributions we can make to moving the world forward. It maps a scenario and a set of priorities for the twenty-first century.

If you are concerned about the future, refugees, corporations, nationalism, US imperialism, globalisation, social breakdown, environmental issues, what to do about them, and how they fit together, this book is written for you.

Palden Jenkins: Palden is no ordinary commentator on world affairs. A student of history, geopolitics and spiritual matters since the 1960s, he sees current events and world trends in a deeper and longer-term context, unrestrained by professional, media or academic constraints. Raised in 1960s Liverpool, he was involved in radical student politics at the London School of Economics and in the seminal spiritual and lifestyle movements of the 1970s. He has not stopped since, founding three educational initiatives, writing books, running websites, teaching and counselling. He lives in Glastonbury, SW England, a small town with a big heritage and remarkable residents. Over the years Palden has helped thousands of people see a much bigger picture."

picture This is my soul brother Jay Levin's latest forward about the MEDIA CHALLENG that is gaining momentum! PLEASE forward this info to all your lists!Fed up with the mainstream media's omissions, distortions and refusal to challenge lies? It's time to send them a message: we're not taking it anymore.

During Independence Day week - June 30-July 6, 2003 - join with thousands of others across the country and act to oppose corporate media and support independent media!

Media Challenge!, a project of peace and social justice groups, is joining with a number of media reform groups around the country who have initiated Media Liberty Week. We seek to turn around a corporate media dominated by pseudo-patriotic cheerleading and by megaphoning for the Pentagon and for Bush administration deceit instead of by journalism. The same TV and radio news buried pre-vote coverage of the FCC's recent decision giving giant infotainment conglomerates GE, Viacom, Clear Channel, Disney and News Corp. a green light to expand their already vast empires - and is mostly blacking out the fight to overturn the FCC vote in Congress. Schools and health-care systems are in deep trouble, increasing numbers of homeless and mentally ill haunt the streets, toxic waste and environmental plunder threaten human and species life, Attorney General Ashcroft is shredding the Constitution, and economic inequality has grown to proportions unseen since the age of the robber barons. Yet most of the media are more interested in Laci Peterson.


Now it's time to show our muscle. Here's what you can do:

 Virtual Abuse
picture Fascinating article about how verbal abuse can be subtle, invade our lives, alter our intentions and create social and political change. Uses George Bush's speeches to show how that works.

Written by Renana Brooks, PhD, clinical psychologist practicing in Washington,DC. She heads the Sommet Institute for the Study of Power and Persuasion and is completing a book on the virtue myth and the conservative culture of domination.
"Bush uses several dominating linguistic techniques to induce surrender to his will. The first is empty language. This term refers to broad statements that are so abstract and mean so little that they are virtually impossible to oppose. Empty language is the emotional equivalent of empty calories. Just as we seldom question the content of potato chips while enjoying their pleasurable taste, recipients of empty language are usually distracted from examining the content of what they are hearing. Domina-tors use empty language to conceal faulty generalizations; to ridicule viable alternatives; to attribute negative motivations to others, thus making them appear contemptible; and to rename and "reframe" opposing viewpoints."

 A Call for Mass Meetings
picture This was sent to me from John Kaminski. I have a 'funny feeling' now that 'Stupid White Men' is an international best seller and the like... that something like this COULD happen. Keep posted about my Glastonbury friend Palden Jenkin's new book 'Healing The Hurts of Nations' and some of the visions of where the world could be headed from all this 'going through it together' that is accumulating. Here's the info. from Kaminski. Maybe it's Time:
Everyone knows now, for sure, that something is very, very wrong.

Fancying themselves patriots so their neighbors won't notice they don't really care about anything real, these deceiving diehards who keep shouting their memorized support for their killer country are either small, selfish minds truly unable to sift the existing evidence and actually think for themselves, or willing liars ˜ like so many appeals court judges ˜ who endorse America's plunder of the world because they are making money off the deal themselves.

In other words, those who support the American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and who applaud the coverup of the World Trade Center tragedy investigation, the wholesale destruction of U.S. environmental laws, and the systematic looting of the U.S. financial system are either stupid or sinister. They have turned the USA into Scum Nation, as they watch their insane hired guns continue to shoot down hapless civilians in Iraq.

The faint glimmer of hope in the sorry current state of the world, however, is that these homicidal maniacs are not in the majority. The media make us think they are. It is the job of the media to make us doubt ourselves so we'll spend more on things we don't really need. But the media are owned by the very people doing the plundering. Thus the public is deceived, lulled into the sleep of fools, and the atrocities continue at an ever more rapid pace.

But the real people of the world ˜ the vast majority of God-fearing, honest folks of all nationalities living in all corners of the world simply want honest answers, and aren't getting them from those who have been entrusted with organizing and protecting the societies in which they live.

 Is it too late to get the Russians to nuke Washington?
picture I found that quote on a great political stickers page. Which reminds me of the 4-part BBC series 'Cambridge Spies' we just completed viewing. The story thrilled me. The true story of these all-together worldly Brits, working these incredible careers, all secretly for the KGB in the 30s, 40s and 50s. What impressed me most was the way the film showed the sheer psychological torture that happens to the idealism of the youths turned into pragmats and to lead these secret double-lives. Much like the issues raised in 'A Pefect Spy' by John LeCarre, who was also involved in foreign services... The psychology of the perfect con man, how someone moves into leading dual-alliances, is really a modern day mythos of how split our world is, and how no real idealism works here. It's always blown wide apart by the horrors of the compromised nature of humanity today. What would the world look like if we all admitted where we were cons, to ourselves and to each other? ...

 Where oh Where Can We Go?
picture BBC News reports:
Poll suggests world hostile to US
Nearly two-thirds of respondents to an international poll for the BBC say they have an unfavourable opinion of George W Bush.

The survey of 11 countries - for the television programme What The World Thinks of America, to be aired this week in the UK - revealed that 57% of the sample had a very unfavourable, or fairly unfavourable attitude towards the American President.

The figure rose to 60% when discounting the views of the American respondents.

The survey - conducted for the BBC by ICM and other international pollsters - gauged opinion towards US military, economic, cultural and political influence.
