Frances Moore Lappé: Hope’s 3 Essentials For a Real Democracy in America, and All Are Present

Frances Moore Lappé: In today’s America, social scientists’ hard data reveal that there is “near zero” relationship between what most Americans want and public policies Congress enacts. With the bedrock of democracy so violated, what does it take for citizens to step up? Well, here’s my second claim: All it takes for humans to leap into action is that enough of us believe just three things, each based in real evidence.

Chaos Theory Shows World Peace is Attainable

Chaos Theory Shows World Peace is Attainable

The world is an amazing and beautiful place. The only thing going on here is as a species we are not aligned with peace; which believe it or not is our natural state of being as it is for all living things in nature, including Mother Earth herself. Everywhere we look we see famine, war, suffering and meaningless cruelty. But if we pan wide…if we just zoom out from our limited perspectives and try to catch a glimpse from a global or even universal view if we so dare, we just might see that great healing is occurring on this planet.

Spirit Led Activism – The True Power Of The People

Spirit Led Activism – The True Power Of The People

The spiritual activist is our natural state of pre mind controlled being. The being who has not been pacified by indoctrination to the ways of the status quo. Who has not sought to identify with the spirit alone – or with the warrior alone – but quite naturally finds that he/she is, by sheer dint of being human, is both these. How our world would rejoice should this breed of actor emerge at the forefront of the affairs of man!

Growing Calls for US to Stop Fueling Saudi Bombings of Yemeni Children

After the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition issued a statement on Saturday calling its deadly bombing of a Yemeni school bus “unjustified” and claiming it was the result of mere “mistakes,” human rights groups and progressive lawmakers ramped up calls for the U.S. to immediately halt all arms sales to Saudi Arabia, which has been viciously bombing Yemen for years.

Sacred Medicine – The Path To Unity

Sacred Medicine – The Path To Unity

The resilience of the shamanic traditions is a testament to their validity, usefulness and power. Many cultures which were much more recent such as the ancient Greek culture have vanished in spite of their wide-spread influence. The lesson we learn from the survival of the ancient shamanic tradition is that there is something fundamentally human about the urge to connect with the Earth, the elements and cosmic consciousness. The need for this spiritual connection is surging from the very depths of our psyche. Just as our bodies have needs and impulses, so does the soul.

Why Americans Need to Defend Julian Assange’s Freedom

Why Americans Need to Defend Julian Assange’s Freedom

Prosecution of Julian Assange is a persecution of American ideals. Criminalizing the act of publishing through the Espionage Act destroys the First Amendment as the guardian of democracy. This not only sets a dangerous precedent for press freedom, but it could allow the beginning of a new totalitarianism. We must break our silence and refuse to participate in the destruction of values that founded this country. It is time for us all to put aside ideological differences and unite in solidarity with people around the world who are engaging in non-violent resistance against this assault on WikiLeaks and our right to free speech.
