         Cree Prophecy









When all the trees have been cut down,

When all the animals have been hunted,

When all the waters are polluted,

When all the air is unsafe to breathe,

Only then will you discover 

You cannot eat money.



   

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so. -Robert A. Heinlein, science-fiction author (1907-1988)

















 

Aldous Huxley's, Brave New World Revisited published in 1958:
Huxley wrote in the book: "Big Business, made possible by advancing technology and the consequent ruin of Little Business, is controlled by the State- that is to say, by a small group of party leaders and the soldiers, policemen and civil servants who carry out their orders. In a capitalist democracy, such as the United States, it is controlled by what Professor C. Wright Mills has called the Power Elite." Huxley goes on," This Power Elite directly employs several millions of the country's working force in its factories, offices and stores, controls many millions more by lending them the money to buy its products and through its ownership of the media of mass
 communication, influences the thoughts, the feelings and the actions of virtually everybody." 

Sounds like a great reason for independent media to me...


Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me. In the great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of sectarianism. It is of all ages, climes and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge. When I am at it, I feel that I am under the spangled heavens of a summer night."

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), American philosopher and writer

"The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western world.
No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity -- much less dissent."
-Gore Vidal, author (1925-2012)

“When we sang our praises to the sun or moon or wind, you said we were worshiping idols. Without understanding, you condemned us as lost souls just because our form of worship was different from yours. We saw the Great Spirit’s work in almost everything: sun, moon, trees, wind and mountains. Sometimes we approached him through these things. Was that so bad? I think we have a true belief in the Supreme Bring, a stronger faith than that of most whites who have called us pagans.”

You have power over your mind, not events. Realize this and you will find strength.

It is impossible for me to reconcile with the idea of conversion as it happens today. It is an error and perhaps the greatest impediment to the world's progress toward peace. Why should a Christian want to convert a Hindu? Why should he not be satisfied if the Hindu is a good or godly man?
-- Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
