Day 276: "La Dolce Vita" - Anyone Seen It?

I am engulfed in the aftermath of our elections.
I was suddenly devoured by doubts, what if this 5 Star Movement is a System Design?
This reflection was triggered by something I heard from one of the founders 'They have to thank us for having 'channeled' the Anger of the Italians into a Pacific Movement', this is indeed something to be thankful for, because as Austerity measures increase around the world for just the ones at the bottom of the Pyramid of Power, Anger is boiling up and unless we find solutions we have to prepare for the revolution the system has already prepared for, didn't we notice?
It's enough to look at the USA and at the Military State that has been setting in while nobody was watching, we have to consider as well that this system is set up so perfectly that is is like Las Vegas, it never loses, Revolution is fine too, they are ready, plus, anything we buy for it, they are selling  and will make money on it, including the Anonymous Masks, there is no way so far for the people to move without fattening up the already Extra Fat Top Cats.

Another consideration about the Italian election is this government stalling, our 3 main parties have received 46 million euros more or less each for their electoral 'effort', only the movement 5 Stars auto financed itself and refused the reimbursement, but, if we go back to elections due to our inability to come to an agreement and grant Trust to the government to allow it to reach the Quorum Majority, we won't be able to put the most important and urgent changes up for vote, such as BIG, the law against conflict of interest, the law that will exclude criminals from parliament, the law that will reduce the ability of a politician to run for longer than 2 terms, the law that ends the elections financing policy  for the parties, the cuts to the wages of the politicians and their golden pensions and free wifi to allow everybody to be virtually connected to establish a direct participatory democracy, we will waste another few months to 1 year to the next elections, PLUS, the next elections the same ones will cash in AGAIN the elections reimbursements!

Tonight the most important political show that we still have left, Servizio Pubblico (remember Italy is 61st on the Freedom of Information 2012 report) made a summary of the elections and the reasons why Italy went this way, it seems that people at the top didn't have the pulse of the actual situation of the country.

It is understandable, when you don't take pubic transport but your government blue car paid by the people to go around, you won't understand the problems of public transport, nor the fact that people who are now paid 420 euro a month through the unemployment dole (which is financed by public taxes we pay while we never get to share the profit of the Corporations, isn't it strange to share in the losses and not the profit?) can't make it to the end of the month nor guarantee their children a different future by sending them to university (?), people are not just angry, they are furious, people who go to work and don't have enough to buy food to the end of the month and have to go to Caritas for the free charity Meals are humiliated and people like my friend neighbor that throw themselves under a train because they can't face not being able to bring home the bacon, have obviously come to the end of their already very very short Rope.
It must be hard to miss out on all of these signs, including a man climbing the St. Peter Cupola to shout to the world he can't support his family or a Major going in his underwear out of Montecitorio to call Politicians Criminals and what they do Crimes against Life and that he will not join in as an accomplish -when you sit at the top and you look down, you just see the worker bees, not human beings just like you, equal in rights, equal in the right to not have to live the Austerity that is designed just for them, equal in the right to not have to live in fear, to not have to cry when you tell your story of misery as an honest man who always worked and are now asked to take a basic income grant - because as we have created the delusion that our worth lies in our work as stated in our Constitution, those who have none are now, in their own eyes, worthless, and they would rather die at the Ilva Plant while the factory pollutes beyond repair and kills as many as it employes over a 15 year time frame, than contemplate change. This is how screwed up we have become and we better realize, the screw up is Equal at the Top and at the bottom, without the bottom accepting what we have accepted and allowed as we gave up our self responsibility to participate in designing and supporting a system that included all in the equation vs always only just shortsightedly, thinking about ourselves.

This is WHY Berlusconi was voted again, we wanted to get back the last tax paid on property as he promised, no matter how long his nose grew while he said he would return the money and even when he wrote a letter to all Italians, including Churches who have NEVER paid the property tax, like never ever, as to point out that the top is disconnected from the bottom, from the left, from the right and even from God and his temporal powers. And 1/4 of the voters believed him, obviously those that do not read the papers and missed out on the Swiss Minister saying the money to pay back that tax won't be released any time soon and then proceeded to publicly discredit Berlusconi's promise, but hei, it was like a lottery ticket, missing the Las Vegas point of the Casino never losing, we still placed our chips on the table, because, You never know.

Are we being led on a wild goose chase now by the 5 Star Movement, maybe even without the knowledge of its founders? Why are we no longer tackling the point of the Sovereignty of the Money System? Grillo used to joke about it in his shows, until a few years ago, when he stopped mentioning it altogether. Are we trading a place in Parliament for keeping mum on the Money Point? Have we been given a path to follow by the Bankers and the controllers of the system so we would not implode and cause REAL damage? We won't know, for sure for now the anger has been contained into a Hope, into a Dream, another few months of looting are assured without watch, because we believe that we are now safe, that we have crossed the Power line into Direct Power.

How did we come to this point, to the point that we don't even trust, can't trust, even the changes we vote for? Well, we know how did we do it, one disconnecting step at the time, we are just as disconnected as those on Top, our network of disconnection is just smaller but not less dangerous.

Meanwhile, just for the result of this elections, the Government titles we have put on the market to cover the Imaginary Debt that builds up on Imaginary Money created against real Stock and Bonds with which we pay the most expensive Printing Agency of All times, the Banking System, have lost credibility due to JP Morgan advise to sell out all Italian titles and buy the safer German ones, in just one week  we owe 2 billion more in interest to the Bankers by the end of the year, to the Un-nameables, the ones we have not yet pointed out publicly, we dance around them in a surreal movie in which we are, so far, just cameos.
Now we have been advised -like Greece...- to not exit the Euro, even though we are the lowest risk point in terms of consequences in the chain, we are now told that Italy would devalue of 30% if we took such a decision. FEAR FEAR FEAR.
Isn't it great the Euro idea, you set up a system through which you intertwine all your Slaves and their Self Interests, and anyone of them who pulls the Chain, is going to harm the others, so you'll have your Slaves looking out for You, without lifting a finger, you just press the FEAR button and have them jump, one against the other.

Now, today I watched a video about the Italian 'Dolce Vita' which enraged me so much I had to go and walk it off, a gentleman from Poland talked about how Italians don't like the Austerity that everyone is swallowing and this is because of their 'La Dolce Vita' attitude, not wanting to bite the bullet, we gained this fame through our 'I Screams' and Parma Hams, spaghetti and mandolins stories, we have been 'pictured' like people who spend their days in leisure in front of a glass of wine on the seaside, chasing women/men and having wild (romantic) sex everywhere.
I want to ask this gentleman, where is this 'Dolce Vita' to be found?
Is 'La Dolce Vita" even Real?


I grew up in Italy with NO access to 'La Dolce Vita', my family had enough to send me to school and get to the end of the month saving a little.
Most Italians didn't even have that then, and certainly in the past 10 years many couldn't even make ends meet, but we can't shake off the storytelling about Italy, it stands as one of those Implanted Dreams in people's Minds, another desire to aspire to, to fool-fill.
So, before embracing myths about a country you have not experienced in the flesh, stop, inform yourself, go and live on the minimum wage of that country for a while because THAT is the lowest point that we claim is FINE for some, and then write about it.

This way, one plus one we'll demystify this world, we'll take down the veils, hopes and dreams that prevent us from seeing what we have done, 'La Dolce Vita' is just another product to buy, it's an Idea of beautiful half naked women walking into fountains in their evening dresses with their boobs spilling out, pouting to be kissed, not a care in the world.

'La Dolce Vita' is a myth, if you walk into a fountain in Rome you will be fined, this is how far from reality we have taken ourselves, we hold dreams that are not even liveable, and to be clear not many have had it 'Sweet' here since the Roman Empire and before we started recording our grandness, when we look at Italy and all its beautiful art, those palaces and bridges, imposing useless Cathedrals where funny men wearing skirts and red shoes walk on red carpets toward altars where plenty jewellery is on display - while people out of those places starve - who built those, if not slaves, the same that built the pyramids a few lives later, are we under the impression that those temples of vanity came up through magical thinking or were they the labor of the sweat of surely underpaid -if at all- people who were just living what we live now, extreme inequality in a world of separation where we ended up unable to trust each other even when we seem to come together, how sad is this world we created and keep justifying?

Not All is Lost

If we wake up to the Truth of this World, it will be unpleasant, I can guarantee and it won't feel good either, realizing we are on a not-so-merry-ride and we have not gotten off it for quite some lives can come, conceded, as a shock. But what are the alternatives? Chasing dreams and hopes of a better future, of some savior, of some solutions that will fall on us from the outside just to miss out on our very Own Power to get back on the steering wheel and  Change ?

Life doesn't have to be Austerity for Most and a Dream Life for just a bunch of us, we can start by giving to each other what we would like for ourselves, we have the will, we showed it with this elections, we have the drive too and are starting to see that considering what is best for All will include, well, ALL, and that includes You and me, in fact, the only way to create a world that works for Real is standing for the Good of All, the Whole is a Force to be reckoned with, there will be no need for revolutions or rebellions, but waking up is no longer a choice, to keep believing in the Images spread around by Media and Movies that do not reflect reality, we are condemning ourselves to Imaginary Better Lives vs Real Change, Real Lives, we have to take a deep Breath, a truck full of them maybe, and dive into the Truth of it all and One breath at the time, change ourselves into Trustworthy beings and the World with us, as Us. Join Us.

Day 275: Hear Here - Italian Elections 2013 - Direct Democracy vs Alzheimer

The Parliament belongs to the People, we can't be Excluded from it.

Our Elections are over and the results have been scrutinized.
The new People Movement, 5 Star, has won, we are now the 1st Party (no coalition)  in the Lower Chamber with 25,55% of the votes of the whole country.
The party is populist, ecologist, and partially Eurosceptic. The "five stars"  are a reference to five issues championed by the movement: public water, sustainable mobility, development, connectivity, and environmentalism.

The movement has been attacked in every possible way, like all groups who are trying to bring people together to build vs than destroy (see Desteni and Equal Money), to find solutions together vs undercutting each other, to seek for transparency and the end of this Monopoly system, this is a reply from Mr. Grillo, one of the promoters who did NOT participate in the elections but just stood to guarantee the integrity of the people to be elected for the Lower and Higher Chambers.
" Sir, I’ve read your June 5 Comment piece “The chirruping allure of Italy’s Jiminy Cricket”, talking about myself and the Italian Five Star Movement.
The article is a deliberate attack on the democratic movement that I represent. The Five Star Movement does not have “simplistic solutions to difficult problems”, but a complete programme that has been discussed on the internet for months and published online at
Any journalist can read it, even Beppe Severgnini.
I have been compared to Benito Mussolini, a dictator. To me, this is an outrage.
The Five Star Movement is accused of being “Populism 2.0”. It is exactly the opposite.
In Italy, the political parties have occupied every space in industry, in the banks, in the media, etc.
We live in a partitocracy, not in a democracy any more.
Unlike the political parties, the Five Star Movement has refused any public financing.
It is actually predicted to be the second political force in Italy with 20 per cent of the votes (we are now the First with 25%), after only two and a half years since it came into being.
It has the goal of achieving a real democracy and of giving the opportunity to citizens to be involved in any decision that affects their life without the inter-mediation of the parties.
The spirit of the Five Star Movement can be summarized in two words: transparency and participation, both possible thanks to the diffusion of the internet.
In the future I hope to read more qualified and objective articles with reference to Italian politics in your prestigious newspaper.
Beppe Grillo, Genoa, Italy


While we knew we were heading for a takeover, we didn't expect, like EVER, that Berlusconi would be taken seriously again, when he run to govern this country once more, here is a list of his past political/overlapping-personal life:

News Today and Reuters looks back at some of his most scandalous moments

  • 1990: Berlusconi found guilty of perjury. This came after he lied about his membership to a subversive masonic lodge, Propaganda 2. His conviction was saved by amnesty.
  • 1998: He gets a two-year nine month sentence for bribing his firm’s tax inspectors. The ruling was later overturned and was then timed out by law. This is something that gets Berlusconi off in five other cases.
  • 2002: A case of false accounting is thrown out of court after a change in the law by his own party.
    ( The Law was changed to allow what he termed "Creative Accounting' sustaining that a Creative country such as Italy should reflect in the lassez faire accounting system of its corporations - not making this stuff up, please do an indipendent search on this point ndr)
  • July 2003: Compares a German MEP to a Nazi concentration camp guard.
  • December 2004: He is cleared of a corruption charge after a four-year trial. He was accused of bribing judges in the 1980s. 
  • 2007: Magazines in Italy publish photos of him hand in hand with several young women. 
  • 2008: Mara Carfagna, a former glamour model, is appointed his Equal Opportunities Minister.
  • June 2008: A bill is launched to grant him immunity from law while he is in office. (by his own government). This suspends two on going cases against him.
  • April 2009: Berlusconi tells victims of the Italian earthquake -that he set up in tents while he prepared to rebuild a modern city nearby the earthquake epicentre, as he refused to fix up ancient L'Aquila just because he would make a pile of Money from his and his friends constructions companies- that they should pretend they are on a “camping weekend.”. Eat cake royalty approach?
  • May 2009: Photos are published of several nude women in his villa.
  • June 2009: Reports surface that he has paid women for sex. Berlusconi tries to squash these rumours. He is quoted as saying to Chi magazine that he “never understood what the satisfaction is when you are missing the pleasure of conquest.”
  • July 2009: He goes on record by saying he is “no saint” after taped conversations between him and a prostitute are published
  • October 2009: The bill granting him immunity from the law is ruled as unconstitutional. 
  • The cases against him re-open.The end is near for Berlusconi
  • February 2010: He announces his election candidates for the upcoming elections which include a Miss Italy contestant, a weather girl from one of his TV channels and a former showgirl.
  • 2010: Investigation opens into his bunga bunga parties and sex with minors in exchange of favours and Money at his Villa in Arcore.
  • November 2010: Berlusconi states that it is better to be a passionate man than to be gay.
  • January 2011: Police in Milan confirm they are investigating Berlusconi for abuse of office and sleeping with an underage prostitute.
  • February 2011: Over one million people in over 200 Italian towns and cities demonstrate against Mr Berlusconi, saying the current sex scandal has disgraced the country. (Not the bribing, False accountancy, drafting of Ad Personam Laws, nepotism, corruption and inviolability, no, Italy was outraged by his sex scandals with minors, 16-17 years old ladies..)
  • November 2011: Under heavy pressure from Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, Berlusconi resigns after a collapse in market confidence which pushes Italy's borrowing levels to critical levels, but only after asking to be followed by someone who vows to make the plan required by the EU to put Italy back on track. Berlusconi is replaced by respected former European Commissioner Mario Monti ( a Bilderberg Man) who forms a technocrat government.
  • September 2012 - After months in the shadows, Berlusconi returns to the political frontline, attacking the Monti government and vowing to abolish a key tax.
  • October  2012 - Berlusconi suggests Monti could stay on as head of a new center-right government after elections. Two weeks later he says he will not lead his People of Freedom (PDL) party in elections expected in 2013.
  • October 2012 - Berlusconi is sentenced to four years in jail for tax fraud in connection with the purchase of broadcasting rights by his Mediaset television company. He will not go to jail until all appeals are exhausted. The next day he threatens to overthrow the Monti government.
  • November 2012 - Berlusconi says he will wait for the result of a poll on December 2 to choose the center-left candidate before deciding whether to run in elections expected in March. Party members say he is considering launching a new party.
  •  February 2013: he presents himself for Elections and his coalition gets 30,72% of Votes for the Senate and 29,18 for the Lower Chamber.
He did not present himself with fake nose and mustache 'a la grouch Marx', no, he put his face on a new political program, told Italians they will be given back what Monti took illegally from them, which is the property tax on the 1st house and he promised that he would do that even if he had to take the money out of his own pockets, he told the Italians he understood the public sentiment and the pledge of the working class, he pressed all the right buttons -in line with the instructions of his PR firms- on his own TV channels and newspapers and voila', he is BACK.

Obviously, the powers that be, which had put Mr. Monti from their own Bilderberg Clan up on Top, and have now realized that there is no way they can manipulate either Chambers with the entrance of the 5 star movement of Citizens, started to say that Italy is moving from Comedy to a Greek Tragedy -please note the Words, because WE are bound to take notice and picture ourselves following Greece's destiny into Poverty and Hunger, after All Greece was pivotal in the new wake of Fear that many have been exploited as the cradle of democracy folded in two and collapsed.
The Financial markets have punished Italy since yesterday morning when the polls made clear the game was moving back into the hands of your everyday people, financial markets shook all the way to Japan, the Italian stock market lost 5 points.

We created such an ingenious system, that, when the Fear of everything that has already been done is momentarily overcome, the aces come out, and we, having given up our right to direct democracy since...., since we never had it,  would subject ourselves to economics maneuvers and blackmails and allow ourselves to be stirred like one of Bond's Martini. Stirred and SHAKEN...

We better wake up to the game, it's too late to turn back, the people who voted Berlusconi are mental cases, in the technical sense of the world, at best they have Alzheimer, he was just outed 1 year ago through public outrage, today the left side, the liberals, have been flip flopping around in Humiliation because the people said that they Had Enough and that a change was required from left to right to center and that the 5 star movement is none, it's above and beyond the sitting place in parliament and the change we ask for is one  that would include what is best for all, as far as we can understand that so far:

A basic income grant
Free healthcare
Free internet
No privatized water
Renewable energies
No chance to evict people from their homes NO Matter the entity of the debt the Banks claim
Shut down Equitalia, the vulture arm of the Government
No condemned people in Parliament (78% of our politicians have been indicted and /or convicted - The Bronx has 75% criminality rate, making our Parliament more frightening than the Bronx)
No more privileges for politicians, no immunity
No more golden wages or pensions that now go from 12000 to 94000 euro per month, which are granted to all after participating to just 1 legislation, that in Italy can be 6 months long; public office pensions will be set to a maximum of 5000 euro per month and the surplus will be used for BIG and to raise the 500 euro pensions of old people
75% wage cuts to politicians with immediate effect
Caring for each other, no one left behind

and the list goes on.

So, as we push for pacific democratic change it is important to not bend, to stick together, to not grab the first lollies thrown to the people, give a fuck about the spread? NO, moving on from the disconnected bean counters reports to cater for Life, we are witnessing one of the first world attempts to access the right of Direct Democracy, if we can change the para-dime in our Minds we can unleash new visions, new possibilities, we need to change our Language as Grillo says -interestingly-, we have trapped ourselves within our own limiting words as limited visions, yes we are threading an unknown path, the known one is devolution, and unless we make a U Turn and care for each one as Equals with Equal Rights and Equal Value, we won't make it.

Does it matter that we make it THIS time? Not so much, it matters that we came up with a program that includes all, again, at the best of our current abilities, that considers that Life is The Value that we must honor and cherish, that we started to see what is possible by coming together, no violence, no harm, just demanding change united as One.

This is just the beginning, from this to Equal Money the step is very very small.
Understand the possibilities if we stand together for Life. Join us

Day 274: Scare Tactics are Not Acceptable

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to be ashamed of myself as a way to make what I did Okay because 'I paid in shame'

So, having a look at this Character I can see other events in which I have done this out of fear of some outcome that I either didn't like or that I wanted to manipulate into a different outcome, let's unravel the Character History

Fear Dimension

'We wanted to talk to you' or 'I wanted to talk to you', spoken either by my mother or my grandparents, this was usually anticipating a long convoluted chat, during which I would be indoctrinated in what I was supposed to Fear, usually fears would relate to Future events, to consequences of me NOT doing what they "saw" was best for me, those words spoken in a specific 'calming' fashion would scare me shitless. 
First because since they had been 'so nice', in theory, there was no reason for me to fear what they were about to say when in fact at some level I knew I was about to sit for a Mind Control session against my will, second because I accepted and allowed myself to believe that I was not in charge of my emotional experience and hence I had to sit and be battered by emotions and feelings as they saw fit to stir, until I would surrender in the grips of an anxiety attack.

My grandparents parading for me the worst possible future outcomes for my life and then saying 'we are saying this for your own good, trust us'
A memory of preparing to sit on the couch for 'one of our talks', fearing the talk, fearing not pleasing them because they were the strongest Money point in my family line, fearing to lose everything of my future if I didn't make myself endure 'that moment' with enough grace

Thought/Memory Dimension

The aftermath of my mother shouting and screaming coming to seek peace and harmony by saying 'please see I say this for your own good'

A memory of myself back in my room angry and anxious and my mother calmed down walking in to explain WHY she behaved that way and how she always had 'my good' at heart, I must remember this

Imagination Dimension

One day I will go away from Italy and I won't have to sit through this crap anymore.

Imagining how free I would feel away from Italy, all the things I could do without this constant brainwashing about fake morality of people who preached well and did not apply it

Imagining how soon the chat will end, skipping to the end and what I should say to pretend I was in agreement so they would leave me alone

Imagining not feeling this way anymore when I would be finally freed from the control of my family

Imagining that I would not have to worry about any of those things because my grandparents would die and I would inherit enough to live as they kept telling me -so- why are we even talking about my future.

My future is guaranteed, I have nothing to worry about

Internal conversations, backchats, voices in the head

Do I have to sit through this crap AGAIN?
What do I have to say to make you stop?
They are doing it for my own good
They know what is best for me
They don't know what is best for me

Reaction Dimensions

Feeling of Impotence - I have to sit through this
Feeling of being cheated into sitting nicely for brainwashing, Anger
Fearing the talk
Anger at myself for saying I did understand why they were doing that for 'my own good', when in fact I couldn't understand how would anyone scare people for their own good - how does that work?

Behavior Dimensions

Tightening of the chest
Stomach cramps
Ggrinding of teeth

Looking at How did I replicate this Character for myself and when and how do I activate it to manipulate others

Scaring my partners that I will leave them as a consequence of Their behavior/potential behaviour
Scaring children I was looking after to make them do what I wanted - told myself this was cool because I did not use the very scary thing some of my family used to scare me with (FOXES) , hence I was better than my family
Scaring friends by projecting for them a future they would not like so they would do what I saw was best for them now
Scaring someone I don't know by saying I will call the police as a consequence of their behavior
Writing scary letters exposing all the "nasty truth" about someone so they will come to their senses for their own good

Will follow with SF and SC application

Rich and Poor: History of Some of Our Sayings

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor"

But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low

Here are some facts about the 1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. 
However, since they were starting to smell . ...... Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. 
Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. 
Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. 
Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!"

Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof...
Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs."

There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.

The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way.
Hence: a thresh hold.

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. 
Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. 
Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. 
When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon.
They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat.

Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. (Some say this was the cause of the Fall of the Roman Empire -lead poisoning ndr) This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.

Lead cups were used to drink ale or whiskey. 
The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days.
Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. 
They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.

England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell.
Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer.

We conveniently forgot our History, we have ALWAYS had Inequality and Poverty, the system was designed this way, some existed just to cater for the elite, just like nowadays. Maybe if we see our history for what it was, we'll see the need to stand up for Change, here is no Evolution, only Devolution, check around.

Stop the game of Poor and Rich once and for All by standing for Life, One and Equal for All @#EqualMoney

Day 273: Scaring Others for "Their Own Good" - Character

A few days ago something happened in which I moved deliberately to 'scare another for their own good'. It was he result of a reaction and as such for sure a Character, for a while I justified myself that I had good reasons to do that because I was doing it 'for their own good when in Fact, when is it ever a good reason to scare someone to make them do something that I have concluded and judged to be for their own good?

During one of our chats, when someone asked, 'what should I tell my mother about death?', the answer was 'tell her to not be afraid of death', in which a quiet backchat went 'why, shouldn't we scare EVERYONE with Death so They Change? - I am scared myself!'. Frightening.

Isn't this what we have done to each other so far, using Death to manipulate the lives of the apparent living ones, using Fear to move and motivate.

I am ashamed of myself.

Obviously being ourselves the product of people who used specific triggers to get us to 'do something' that they deemed to be 'best for us', we cannot but predictably have picked up on the tools they have used.

Where else would we learn how to maneuver this world to our advantage?

The Problem

The problem with this specific trait is that I keep spreading this sickening Fear that has turned the world into what it is today, as the documentary "Human resource - Engineering Humans for the 21st century" states 'The driving force of this world is Not Love, it's FEAR", and I participate in keeping it alive in others, even wishing that we would use it as a group weapon 'scare them to death', fuck, that's sad, we are already doing that, we have to do something else for this world as myself to change.

The Solution

The solution is to go and dig inside myself to see how I have accepted and allowed myself to be programmed to be moved by Fear and in turn to use it a tool against others, because I could and because I could always justify it with the same lines that were given to me "I'm doing this for your own good, DEAR', when in fact I am doing it for my own good, to make sure that people align to either one of my expectation/desire/opinion whatever it is that I want to achieve. So I have to dig out of myself the original microchips and delete them and replace them with a new script that I can walk whenever I find myself faced again with the 'about to scare Youuuuu' program.

The Reward

I can stand as a point that no longer spreads Fear into others for my own personal wants and needs

I can create more compassionate relationships as I would have liked others to have with me

I will be able to not experience shame for what I see and realize that I am doing as I step into this automated behavior

I won't need to come up with improbable excuses and justifications about why, really, I was doing it for their own good, because that is just crap and totally self dishonest

I won't have to experience regret for having done again that thing I do for the 'good of another'

I can change, this trait of myself is not what is best for All and it has no reason to exist or myself exist one and equal to it.

Tomorrow I will follow up with Self Forgiveness walking this Character in detail

Day 272: Earth, Planet of the Dumbs

Apparently the world is full of intelligent people.
We have clubs like 'Mensa' who now test the IQ of kids, the youngest member was 3 years old a few weeks ago.
Obviously we are testing our IQ based on our ability to solve predictable patterns, such as number sequences, a favorite in any IQ tests. We have now introduced general knowledge, soon knowing who lady Gaga is will account for IQ points because the names of entertainers are now part of 'general knowledge' subjects. Are we rewarded for working with imprinted patterns and useless information ?
This must be why we are basically in fact pretty dumb.

If you doubt it, please take a tour on the Pro Capitalism websites, I attach a link here to one called CapitalismMagazine, this site advocates Capitalism as it never existed, a complete laissez faire system in which the government and economics are completely separated.

Apart from the point that at the moment we in fact enjoy an even more sophisticated form of capitalism, we have gone way beyond the laissez faire to a place where the economy is separated from reality and then the economy is separated from the government, meaning the people, because the government, for those that forgot, should be made by representatives of the People, Democracy would mean to be "ruled" by the People's representatives, but we never had one of those so far, we just had the Delusion of Democracy and as far as the Government goes, it's not a stand alone Ruling Agency that decides 'in lieu' of the people, it is always deciding FOR someone and as of lately, not for the People and what is best for all but for the Corporations, who have bought out the Government and now rule, keeping the government in place just for some ideologically decency and to avoid a bloody revolution.

What they state in the article that I linked is that Capitalism works both in theory and in practice, because, well, because it works in Theory, DUH?

I am not making this stuff up, here is the closing sentence of the article

Capitalism is good in practice because it is good in theory.

How many theories have we had that were not good in practice?

Slavery as a Theory was perfect, you get some people, tell them they are not worth like some other people, get them to work for free, no benefits, no holidays, once they expire you throw them away. Period.

I take this point specifically because today a gentleman tweeted me in reply to a Post called 'Slavery was Great, why did we abolish it, again?"to say this

"Just because we say it is, does not make it so. It is less expensive to hire people than keep them as slaves"

Really?? How would that be, unless we made a theory to say such a thing, used fantasy mathematics to prove it, then backed it up with an opinion and then believed it, how would intelligent people see truth in this statement? And if so, why aren't the thousands of slave owners of the world Not Hiring? Stupid Slave Owners? Did they miss out on the latest theories on slavery, did the new economics of Profit Slavery not reach them?

Back to the Capitalism website, another piece of Theory:

Unfortunately, capitalism as I advocate has never existed. Capitalism means a complete separation of government and economics. It means no public roads, no government schools, no FDA, and no IRS. It means no regulations, no coercive taxation, and no government “entitlement” programs.

Yes, although this may be the solitary opinion of someone who just made a blog and called it Capitalism Magazine, it's still written down, some thoughts must have gone into this.

What would it mean to have no public roads?

Well, since Capitalism is a Profit based Religion, we would have roads built only where there would be people that would pay to use them, why build a road in the outback or where just a few families live that do not contribute to this vital economy, how would we reach those places, but of course, who would even want to go to those forgotten places where people were so illiterate that they could not become active participants in the system, what would they have to offer for the journey, fresh eggs alone? And how would illiterate people educate their children to give them an opportunity to one day participate in the system, make a living, support themselves - or, should they be confined to their family trade which must be in the lowest spirals of the system, also known as Hell for those who dwell there, as the Elves that make possible the lifestyle we desire and have designed this system for -or what is the future that we design for them with such a model, do we even care?

Because this is the biggest Flaw of the Theory of modern capitalism, its designed to not consider the whole and this is not just a minor flaw, it's massive, it has led to the world we have today, it is a Theory of Exclusive-ism, where some are Excluded by its very design and therefore it is Flawed not just in Practice but in Theory too.

And if this system leads us to say things as dumb as 'it's more convenient to hire people than to have slaves', we have to stop and breathe, look around and ask 'who said that?', it cannot be anyone in their right Mind so those words must be the product of some indoctrination, maybe following the thread back to the source can give us insights on how we managed to become blinded by this system to sustain some of its theories, included that going to Mars will lead to discoveries that, ultimately, may finally help the Poor, HOW? 
How do we manage those stories without a hint of a doubt, without even flinching as we share them with others, isn't it high time to reclaim some common sense, see and realize that we are defending a system in principle with plain unsustainable excuses and then look around, is this a World worth defending at all?

If not, inform yourself on alternatives, we are not throwing out the baby with the dirty bath water, the dirt must go that is sure, the dirt is in the fantasies we make up in our Minds in disconnection from the physical reality that is Here, stable, unwavering, waiting for us to face it and come up with Solutions that benefit Life and All the Living beings who live here and share this planet, you included,  and as we come to terms with the fact that we have been led to sustain a system that is not caring for All Life Equally, just because in Theory, that's the way to go, we can stand up and Change.

Equal Money Capitalism, the Freedom of Life is Here. Join us.

Day 271: Facing sharing the Tool of Self Forgiveness

I have not been able to share Self Forgiveness in Italian comfortably so far. I imagine people laughing and then gossiping about me as someone who belongs in the nut house.

Self forgiveness is linked to Forgiveness for me in Italian, a religious tool, Images of nuns and priests come up, of hell and crucifixion, of wrongdoings and fanatic stances of the religious people like Savonarola.

Religion never seemed sane, preaching one thing and doing another, so fear of inconsistency, of myself not being an example 'good enough' to even talk about it.

And it brings up a fear, like it is something not to be shared, even though I benefited a lot from using it to release my energetic ties, it's best left 'unspoken' so I will unfold this point both in English and in Italian in this post.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to resist sharing self forgiveness out of the fear of being judged as a nutcase

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to believe that self forgiveness could be preached only by Holy People and since I am unholy I can't talk about it

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to link self forgiveness and preaching into one word

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to believe that self forgiveness should be taught by those who live a life of renunciation like St. Francis of Assisi and not by common humans who have no business in 'religious practices'

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to link 'self forgiveness' to religion because forgiveness is a religious practice and only religious people do it and I am not religious

I forgive myself that accepted and allowed myself to not see, realize and understand that the contamination of the word -for-giveness was deliberate to make sure we would not be able to find the way out of the energetic loops we weaved for ourselves and for not pushing myself to break this conditioning and release myself from this religious baggage relative to the word 'forgiveness' -I forgive myself

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to, when faced today with a point where clearly a lady needed to learn this tool to stop herself from running wild within her mind, to react, and blame her for repeating the same old same old patterns that lead her to depression, instead of breathing and realizing she has no tool to stop herself, unless I share what I myself realized about how to stop a pattern of behavior/energy

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to scare this lady today about what kind of future is waiting for her if she doesn't stop 'that thing she does' which brings hell to herself and those around her, instead of breathing and seeing that there is never a good reason to scare someone into doing/not doing something, whatever points I can find to defend, I am in fact adding up to their own fears which constitute the building blocks of their mind loops and not supporting in any way

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to be part of the problem by projecting fears of possible future events vs being part of the solution by sharing self forgiveness and supporting another as myself to stop energetic patterns as their imprisonment and the hellish life they are currently experiencing

Mi perdono per avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di avere paura di condividere 'il perdono di se stessi' perche' ho accettato e consentito a me stessa di credere che solo le persone religiose possono parlare di perdono e che non e' una cosa da condividere con altri

Mi perdono di avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di reagire con A. e di dirle tutto quello che ho detto partendo da una reazione, invece di respirare, rendere me stessa stabile e presente e poi scegliere le parole che avrei potuto dire che lei avrebbe potuto sentire, senza spaventarla

Mi perdono di avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di credere che ci sono buone ragioni per spaventare qualcuno per farlo uscire da un pattern, quando infatti e' la somma delle sue paure che la/lo tiene bloccata/o all'interno di un cerchio che continua a ripetersi senza uscita

Mi perdono per avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di resistere la condivisione del 'perdono di se' stessi' con la scusa che non avrebbe sentito/capito quello che volevo dire e che avrebbe potuto pensare che sono matta invece di realizzare che avevo paura di condividere questo strumento perche' ho permesso e consentito a me stessa di legare la parola 'perdono' alla religione, agli errori, all'inferno, alla crocefissione, a Suor Chiarina in piedi sulla cattedra che spiegava come hanno crocefisso Gesu', invece di realizzare che la parola perdono e' stata deliberatamente imbastardita dalla religione che l'ha strumentalizzata per se' e i propri scopi

Mi perdono per avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di non realizzare che la parola 'perdono' e' stata deliberatemente investita di un bagaglio religioso per allontanarla dall'uso della persona comune, per creare un senso di disagio che assicurasse che nessuno trovasse la strada fuori da questa esistenza delirante di pensieri, emozioni e sentimenti = energia

Mi perdono per avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di, quando ho condiviso questo strumento a supporto di qualcuno che non e' parte della mia famiglia, di sentire una gran paura e di credere che questa paura fosse giustificata perche' proietto sugli altri dei buoni motivi quale causa delle mie paure, invece di realizzare che le mie paure sono una mia creazione e che gli altri non hanno nulla a che vedere con come io percepisco me stessa

Mi perdono di avere accettato e consentito a me stessa di credere che la parola perdono non possa esistere fuori da club/associazioni religiosi, e che usare una parola come perdono mi rende uguale ai gruppi come CL, ai boy scout, al catechismo, a gruppi che in passato ho giudicato come noiosi e non interessanti e che ora temo possano essere associati a me insieme al giudizio che ho espresso su di loro, per il quale mi perdono
