Say NO to evil. On Twitter. On other networks.

I just followed folk who follow and I advise you to do the same. Global, alert, happening.


We are finally at the point where what we do will literally spell the difference between life and death for the planet. Make no mistake. There is evil in the world because there is conscious harm being done. Some harm is due to corporate and governmental actions that result in everything from the denial of rights to starvation, sickness and death. There is evil in the world because idolatrous individuals believe that they can resurrect imagined pasts or achieve utopian dreams by acts of terror and murder. There is evil in the world because of susceptibility to the propaganda  of those who dwell on hate, fear and violence. And the time has come to counter it in a new way that is only possible because cyberspace makes it so. Consider the clear call of Triadic Philosophy. The truth will set us free. The truth is that the voices of billions have the power, merely by expressing themselves, to wrest control of history from the bad guys. The only thing that keeps the purveyors of  harm in control is the lassitude of the crowd. Triadic Philosophy invites each person to lay claim to their birthright. The freedom to choose values that create progress. How will we keep the top from getting richer as masses drown in debt? By saying NO to evil. On Twitter. On other networks. In messages. In our face to face lives. We can react to the wages of harm in such numbers and with such force and with such a degree of authenticity, that on a sheer numerical level we can make change resonate. We can move from today's ironical cynicism to a skeptical but positive affirmation of tolerance, helpfulness and democracy. We can move past either-or simplicity, prevalent in the media, to an affirmation that the only way that matters is a way that works.  Why is this a key moment in history? It is the first time that all can be heard. The unique, individual messages of all have a cumulative power to put a stop to the forces that would otherwise kill our planet.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
