Liberation 2017

Note:

We wrote these songs; we composed them; we polished them; we recorded them; we mastered them; and we copyrighted them. They are our property we have a lot invested in, and if you try to steal them, we will come and hurt you, and then send lawyers after whatever is left.

1)Your Eyes

2. Light the Fuse and Run

3. Solstice Song

Note ALL guitars on this cd were recorded on the same amp, a 20 watt ‘Bootikit’ designed and hand wired by Bruce Egnater himself as the ‘make it look like this’ model at one of his amp building classes, outside Detroit. I was lucky enough to take one of these classes and build my own amp, which Moose uses on stage for his distorted sound.  Recordings were all through a checkered Marshall 1960 top cabinet with Green Back speakers.

4. Solid Rocket Booster

5. Road Trip

6 Goddess and the Sun King

7. Heartbroken

8. Genghis Khan

9. It Begins

10. Liberation of Desire   This is the song that begun it all, I wrote in 2001, after I left 3 Golden Apples of Chaos at the Vatican, as though they were bombs.

For Bob Wilson Fans

So some of my friends think the Seekrit Gummint is located at Yogaville, on the James River here in Vuginia. Others are sure that something sinister still stirs in the forbidden areas of the Homestead Resort. My own favorite pet theory is that the Hill underneath the Stonewall Jackson Farm off Rt 60 near Lexington is all hollowed out, and has its own Situation Room with all the screens, and everything, and it’s ruled over by former military officers still on the payroll of VMI (Vuginia Militry Institoot,) but not seen on campus in years.

Government, they reckon, is too important to leave to Show Horses.  It’s Armies that have Governments, and not the other way around.  There was an Army in America before there was a Congress, and the British came looking to destroy that Army, not to stop people having little meetings and issuing little Declarations.  That Army survived the British, and then frankly Replaced its government with something that’d see the Army, the Creditors, and the Arms Makers All Got Paid, and that has been the decisive strength of our enlightened System ever since.

It works Well.  What it lacks is any sort of long term plan. Or even short term plan, other than trying to make sure everyone gets Paid.  Maybe this is because our Founding Fathers were Business Men First, and did not want any ‘Vision’ interfering with Profit, or maybe it’s because the ‘Vision’ already existed, but in Secret.

Paradigm Shift 12-15

So till now, History has largely been written in military conquest. Society has taken whatever form seemed optimal to support the military technology of every time. There is a major stream of thought that points to weapons tech as the determining factor in much of history. I have a kind of ongoing personal argument with this view where I keep saying ‘But… but… but…’ and trying to escape its vice-like reductionist logic.

But what if ‘Force’ projected at a distance is only one end of a whole spectrum of human trade in ideas and objects? What if till now, it was the end of the spectrum that always got there first, and talked the loudest, and so we have a habit of accepting its dominance, but what if things have changed?

Before we can talk about the non-force parts of the spectrum of human interaction, let’s address how non-force technologies affect war and killing.  In World War II, if there was one important person or workshop you needed to ‘take out,’ there was simply no better way than to try to bomb it from an airplane. The only way to be ‘sure’ was to drop a lot of bombs from a lot of airplanes, and hope for the best.  By contrast, today, you google their location, and contact your connection or broker for whatever you want done, give the directions, and an individual, shop, factory, or base can be bombed, or seized, or creatively messed-with in any number of ways.

This is not to say the airplanes and missiles with bombs are not still important, but they do try to do the same thing, place any size bomb or supply package (as case may be) precisely on the target, precisely on schedule.  And messages travel more quickly than airplanes or tanks do.

How does the power of information Confront the power of Force? How might it?  Well suppose troops overseas are conducting house-to-house search, beat, and intimidate raids. Suppose the local resistance has no weapons at all, but several skilled Hackers.  Here come the Green-Boots kicking down the door.  But the woman in the house is speed-dialing a number on a cel phone. By the time the soldiers troop in, all their Mothers are on the line, in a conference call. The woman who called appeals for her life, and says “Your son is kicking down my door, and threatening me and my children. Will you please, for the love of GOD tell them to stop?”  Suppose they are seeing video of the carnage their boys and girls are creating. Suppose they are on speaker phone.  That is HARD CORE Intel, and HARD CORE Psy Ops, the sort of thing that once was only available to major governments. Today, virtually anybody can find out that sort of info, if they are motivated.

But all that is fireworks to impress those who only think in terms of force and killing, or commanding.  The future of human interaction has more persuasion and soft-motivation going on.  A Pack is something you command and control.  A Herd is something that sort of gloms together and goes where it will. Till now, the Herd of humanity was controlled by a Pack (like dogs)  that ran around and simulated threats, but none of them really got Control.  For Control, they need a Continuous Edge around the Herd, a buffer area free of stragglers. They don’t have that. The herd is spread out now. The simulated attacks meant to direct them this way and that presume there is an ‘out there’ somewhere for the attack to come from. But there is no Out There anymore. There is only In Here. And there is no Edge, just the imperceptible rarification as you roll away from Town.

Today we can communicate instantaneously at a distance, without much regard for national borders.  We can communicate in broadband, with several video feeds, several audio feeds, ongoing comment, etc.  Imagine how scary that is to anyone whose job it is to keep people Under Control, even for the most noble of reasons.  Those in Control are Controlled by the Need to Control.  What could be a bigger threat to Control than regular people stepping out of the nationalist Straitjacket?  What does a Kindergarten teacher do when she can’t restore order in the class?  First she slams something heavy down on her desk, and bellows like a stuck gorilla. Then if that is not enough, she makes an Example of Someone, however that translates in her world.  That is what all other Authorities do when they are losing Control, whether Prison Guards or Mafiosi. All Authority is the Same, and exercised the Same way, but people who are demonstrably Less Smart, and More Amoral than those they presume to order around.  Maybe as we all get Connected, we will respect not so much crude Power, as Reliable (true) Information.  How will Governments cope with that?  Their whole impulse is to treasure any info that’s actually ‘True’ and create a hierarchy of who gets access to how much, and who gets fed a load of Crap. The whole Structure exists for this.  Everyone’s Job is to assess who is worthy of how much truth, and then make damn sure they work for it.  How long will anyone Respect that in the Information Age?

 

This is like the Renaissance, only more so, and what took decades is taking MONTHS now.

 

 

 

Repost Action Communique 8-29-2015 Want to Get Rid of Trump?

Want to get rid of Trump?
1.Show up ANYTIME he will be in Public.
2.Laugh Out Loud from the time he appears to the time he disappears.
3.REFUSE to say Why.

What this will do:
1. A guy like Trump cannot stand to be ridiculed to his face. It will put him off his game right away, and it will be hard for him to make it stop without looking ridiculous, and maybe getting some more people laughing, at the video if not there and then.

2. Anytime he speaks the crowd will have to be screened for ‘those laughing people,’ and so the Protesters will have to get more and more clever at seeming like bona fide GOP Assholes.

3. Meanwhile at least some legit supporters will be unceremoniously turned away for looking too happy. Some may Complain. Protesters that get caught out can do this too. Great video, “They said I look too happy. I dunno. I look happy to you? Well I ain’t happy now. i done drove from Abilene with this here Check for Mr Trump, and his security people said I could not come in cuz I looked like I might laugh at him. What’s his problem anyway? If he can’t take a little laughing, what is he doing ruining for president?”

Why refuse to explain?
1. You start splaining, and you are just another player in the political game. You have an agenda. You are helping one candidate and hurting another. By NOT explaining, you make it a mystery. You invite everyone to have an opinion about who is doing this and what it means, and not simply whether they agree with your spiel. By not having a spiel, you invite them to imagine you agree with them, and find it all absurdly funny for the same reasons they do, now and again, when they lighten up.

2. The Story never loses interest, as long as someone shows up to laugh most times, and everyone gets to speculate anew each time about who and what and why.

3. Making the Story Not About Trump, and he won’t stand for that. But whatever he does, as long as you keep laughing, and keep the cameras rolling, just makes him look worse and worse.

Come to think, this would work on any pompous jackass in authority you don’t like, down to a teacher or a cop.
