Propaganda War!

armchair generalsWAR IS US

      Medea Benjamin has a piece about the war mongering of the mainstream press. See http://www.commondreams.org/views/2014/10/10/fourth-estate-flames-us-medias-award-winning-war-propaganda

There is a constant stream of “be very afraid of Muslims, we must bomb that country, no this country, no, the other country again.” Our economy, with most of the good paying manufacturing jobs sent after slave labor abroad, is increasingly dependent on what is euphemistically called “defense spending.”

This combination of a war economy and war propaganda hasn’t been this organized anywhere on the planet since the Third Reich.

Don’t Be Bamboozled!   Stop the Wars!

All Hawaii Stand Together – We can’t keep on desecrating.

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

“All Hawaii Stand Together”

Protet Mauna Kea
      Some years back, Hawaiian legendary composer and musician, Liko Martin, wrote a song entitled “All Hawaii Stand Together – Hawai’i Loa Ku Like Kakou. That song has become a modern day anthem of Hawaiian sovereignty to save the land. Liko Martin, together with Laulani Teale, Kaliko Kanaele, and others, sang that song on Tuesday, Oct. 7th a top Mauna a Wakea — Mauna Kea. The occasion was a coming together, especially of young Native Hawaiians, to protect the Mauna from the desecration of building a $1.4 billion dollar, 18 story high Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) in the summit area. Hundreds of people chanted and prayed with aloha at Pu’uhuluhulu to protect Mauna Kea. Dozens then traveled to the summit area to chant, pray and offer ho’okupu and through peaceful, non-violent action block the ground breaking ceremonies for the TMT.

      Kaliko Kanaele of the Royal Order of Kamehameha put the matter sharply and spoke for many when he said “We can’t keep on desecrating.” The sacred Mauna is already dominated and desecrated by too many telescopes. Kaliko’s words of wisdom apply equally to the continued bombing at Pohakuloa, the drilling into Pele for geothermal energy, and the overall profit driven pollution of the planet causing a global climate crisis and endless wars.  “We can’t keep on desecrating.”

      It is time for people everywhere to stand together and put the sacred before the almighty dollar in both word and deed. It is time to demonstrate through our actions what God or Gods to whom we pray.  Stopping the desecration by TMT (Too Many Telescopes) on Mauna Kea is an important start.

      It is especially important that people of faith, whose god is not the dollar, — Catholics, Methodist, UCC, New Hope, etc. –all spiritual believers, stand in solidarity with Native Hawaiian practitioners in prayer and action to protect the sacred temple — Mauna Kea. We all have responsibility to aloha one another, especially the host culture’s spiritual beliefs in the place where we live and call home.
