Why have we allowed the Corporations and the rich to take over and pretty much rule the Planet?    Tell me friends,  where do the Wealthy find all that $$$$$?            Well, they pretty much gather it up from the regular everyday working Joe’s That is You and I my friends…      We must fill those empty Bellies,  we must have Clothes, new cars, computers, T.V.s a home to rest our weary heads in after a day spent waitressing, house keeping, running our selves ragged in one of good ole Amazons warehouses, where every moment of one’s working hours must be accounted for…Whilst earning perhaps seven or eight dollars an hour , as the Boss Man earns Ten Thousand or more for that same hour…Thus the modern form of slavery that from the time we’re infants we are brainwashed into believing that that is the way life is… Not many are able to free themselves from this conditioning,  How is one able to learn that life does not have to be this way,  when one is born into life of parents who were themselves unable to free themselves from the horrible cycle of poverty and ignorance…  The trap is carefully laid,  The rich have had centuries to design it, and the system is carefully protected from any interference by the likes of us… You  see, every man woman and child, would have to cooperate as ONE United Mind, to defeat this evil empire…  How do we show the Rulers who really has the power?    What do the rulers always need more of?    Money,  and since the money is produced only with our labor and our spending of our meager paychecks in their stores, their hospitals, the immense supply of goodies to buy,  provided by other slaves mostly in low wage countries, we must cut out the supply of Money…   this means:   Stock up on food, gas, medicine, and then for a week or a month, NOBODY shows up to work, NOBODY shops… When the flow of Money slows down     The rich will panic, threats will be made:  Back to Work or ELSE….The police will be thick on the streets, the Armies will be put on alert, But we must act as One Unified living force… We must be brave and say NO!        NO! NO! to slavery and humiliation…”It is better to die on your feet, than to live on your Knees.” Spanish Heroine in Spain’s civil war…Then we must learn that life works well when all men, women, and children live in Service to each other,  instead of slavery to the whims of those who believe only in profit, at the cost of poverty for the many and Riches for the few….                                                                                                                                 ……………………………..FOREWORD……………………………….                                                                                                                   “He said to the people, “Sing high.  Do not stifle the song in your heart.”   And the people said, “We are hungry, we sing low and sad.   He said to the people, ” Stand and demand.”   And the people said, “We are sick and we are tired.” He said to the people, “Know yourselves, there is glory in you.”  And the people said, “We know our burdens and frustrations, our problems and anxieties, our hardships and our suffering.”               “Are those in power like you?” He asked.   “Are they burdened and beaten?”  And the people said they are not, they are rich.  They are respected and honored.”        Then He said, ” They have taken your share and theirs, and allowed you a pittance.   That is not just.  Claim your rights.”   And the people said, “When we claim our rights, they jail us, they defame us; they ostracize us.”   He bows his head and says nothing.  The People bow their heads and say nothing.   The planet turns slowly toward midnight and despair.                                                                                                                                              Now He speaks again.  “Do not despair,” He says.        Creativity is on our side.  Love is on our side.  Beauty is on our side.  Truth is on our side.  Miracles are on our side.  We cannot lose.  Look at the stars, they dispel the blackness of the night.  They, too,  are on our side.  Stand up and celebrate.”  A fire runs through the people.  They clench their fists and raise their arms. “We will fight,” they say.   “We will demand our rights,” they say.  “We will achieve justice,” they say, “For ourselves and for all men.”                                                               By Sireo Esteve, from “The Experience, a Celebration of Being.”   Random House 1974…                      P.S. I quote from the “Experience,” because he states what I feel so much more eloquently than I ever could…. Love to all, Alaska Man Speaks…

  1. They say that successful people are those who dream big, but I believe that they not only believe but their actions are more important in their success. They do hard work to get their desires and to change their dreams into a reality.

    1. Brother, that was an old post! 5/31/18, you must have had to page back through my many posts to find that one! Merci Sir! I wish I could speak French, but my French teacher in High School was over 85 years old and could barely hold her head up^ in class, so I learned nothing……


  2. Bonjour mon ami D’Alaska et amitié je me prénomme Bernard voici la traduction de mon cris
    THE NET pay attention to beautiful words
    I met women on the net who were moving from France
    But who was of origin of the countries of Africa of white colors
    Some have to try to gently entangle me in romantic relationships
    Not really to make me happy
    Rather to try to twist m ((by nice sentences))
    I’m not falling into their dubious game or into their trap
    From this masquerade, they know all the strings
    She’s having fun and some men believe in her daughters
    Who they memes are manipulated
    They choose their prey well
    Men who are ill in their own skin or single, fragile
    They say beautiful, deceitful and flattering phrases
    They are active on SKipe or MSN with fervor in the evening
    They start long conversations in the dark
    Behind their screens they play lonely women
    Some men get caught up in this game
    They say it will be its sun
    At this little merry-go-round I didn’t get
    I immediately suspected this deception
    And yes, ladies and gentlemen, don’t get over it.
    Be careful and vigilant
    They’re just trying to get you money

  3. We are beginning to stand together. Many of us understand we are living in an oligarchy. Old fashioned boycott can work wonders and we have a head start with the shut downs due to COVID19. Still, we will have a lot to do to bring down Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and the other corporations that are draining us dry. We have a lot to do to end the indoctrination of our youth to the notion that everything is a commodity, to be sold. They participate in marketing junk to themselves while living on “likes” because they are so empty inside. Capitalism is killing us and, you’re right, people act as if this is the only system we can have, the only type of social organization that makes sense. It is the only system they know, and we have not, up until now, displayed any interest in wholesale change of the systems that oppress us. Maybe now…
