WOMANIFESTO – A PLAN TO SAVE HUMANITY


The Womanifesto is the philosophy underpinning the novel

DOG Sharon: The Future is Female 

The Womanifesto calls for a positive re-evaluation and adoption of what have traditionally been referred to as Female Values and Perspectives with a corresponding paradigm shift in human affairs.

By this we mean an emphasis on cooperation and community rather than competition and individualism, with society organised to protect its weakest members, namely children and the elderly.

In the present global economic system we are told there is no alternative to production being governed by the Market.

However there can be no production without people and people are created by reproduction.

Therefore whoever controls reproduction controls production and future human society.

This explains why religions and other bastions of male power have worked so hard to regulate and deny female sexuality.

These sad people kill to oppose abortion, fight against birth control and do anything to prevent children getting proper sex education.

The rulers need our children for their wars and as workers, but they don’t want to acknowledge the power of reproduction.

They can’t let the women speak out.

So they denigrate the Feminine and attack women because they’re scared.

When women manage reproduction, the risk posed by overpopulation – probably the biggest challenge facing humanity – will quickly diminish and our species will no longer threaten all other life on the planet.

If women see a future where their children will be working for slave wages or die in wars or starve or die of thirst – if women see this, they will refuse to bring more children into the world.

Why should women give birth to children in a society that abuses most of the people most of the time, a society that lets tens of thousands of kids die each and every day from preventable causes?

Women everywhere are demanding change, and will not be denied. The genie is truly out of the bottle.

The existing order is based on violence or the threat of violence. But as violence creates more violence this is obviously counterproductive.

Women and children suffer most from wars and crime, face sexual assault, domestic violence and constant harassment.

Violence in all its forms must become a thing of the past.

We’ll need new politics for this new society and we’re calling it Lowerarchy.

Everybody knows a hierarchy is a pyramid-like structure with power concentrated at the top. This model worked well for kings, emperors, presidents, prime ministers, warlords and tyrants of every kind, and when allied with military might, has allowed these dictators to dominate the vast majority of people for the last several thousand years.

Hierarchies are part of our heritage, but then so is cannibalism: both have no place in a modern egalitarian society.

Government has developed from the absolute rule of kings and is the means by which the few dominate the many – so is part of the problem not a solution.

Lowerarchy is the opposite of hierarchical organisation.

In the Lowerarchy there will be no need for leaders as there will be no nations to lead. Local people will decide for themselves how to live and manage resources.

Then artificial national boundaries can be dissolved, and with no nation states to defend, armies will become redundant so can safely be disbanded.

Likewise, security services can be dismantled as we would all be on the same side.

The alternative to the above?

Catastrophic overpopulation, continued unfettered competition and the commodification of everything, wholesale destruction of the natural world, mass extinctions, more pollution and greenhouse effects on the climate, a further widening of the gap between the rich and poor, loss of civil liberties, wars over resources, famines and the likely destruction of the species.

It’s time we changed the way we live –

Let’s make the Future Female!

If we Default All Debts, everyone can start again. Most folk would be better off – only the rich would lose. And if we lost a few financial institutions, would anybody care or even notice?

Second, if we want a world where everybody truly feels equal, then let’s reflect that in the economic sphere.

We suggest a One World, One Wage policy.

It’s a simple plan. Everybody gets paid the same salary. So cleaners get the same as bankers, teachers are equal to dinner ladies and mums valued as much as soccer stars.

So we run society just like a big co-operative – because that’s what we are.

And as we truly are all in this together, obviously those that can’t work will be cared for: that’s what society’s for.

Once this is implemented, and in tandem with the debt default, much of the inequality will soon be squeezed out of the system. After the real price of labour has been factored in, the true value of any good or service can be calculated.

CULTURE IN DECLINE – PETER JOSEPH


Click here to watch a brilliant short film by Peter Joseph, creator of the Zeitgeist movies.

In US election year, Peter sardonically examines American democracy and shows how the capitalist system controls our thoughts and actions so there are no real choices. He shows how puppet politicians are bankrolled by corporations and asks why we need these leaders at all. This is the same point I make in Womanifesto and we agree that modern leaders play the same role as kings, emperors and dictators did formerly.

For democracy to work, all citizens must be educated to understand the issues, yet critical thinking and logic are ignored and learning by rote is taught to millions. Joseph argues the US two party political system is a con – there is no real choice and all good change derives from pressure from below – not the Republican and Democratic parties.

He also shows how the big parties came together to set up and control the Presidential debates so killing intelligent discussion and stopping smaller parties getting airtime. This is exactly the same as in the UK and most other so-called democracies. Noam Chomsky has been saying this for years.

Even now as more and more species become extinct, the climate changes to who knows what and humanity teeters on the brink of disaster, most folk are more interested in inane celebrities, fashion and consumerism.

Peter also shows how religion creates an unthinking populace who do as they are told rather than questioning everything.

So if you care about the future, the ecosystem and your own minds – watch and engage with this film – what could be more important?

WE THE PEOPLE NETWORK

I study history and understand that the criminal actions of this illegitimate government are prompted by weakness and fear. We, the armed citizens out number the police and military by an order of magnitude and this does not include the oath keepers who will refuse orders. I keep repeating this because its so fundamental to everything and yet so misunderstood if even known about at all: ALL government is by consent of the governed. This is an undeniable fact of history.

In order to generate fear on the part of the people and thus generate ‘consent’, the criminals need to show that there is a threat to people’s safety. Understand that they know full well that a war against the American people is unwinnable for them. If we can see it then you damn well know they can. But these criminals do one…

Battered and Bruised is Beautiful?

BroadBlogs

By Catherine Scott @ Ms. Magazine Blog

Treating women like dirt is hardly a new tactic for the fashion industry, with its long history of objectifying the female body, idealizing physically impossible beauty types and glamorizing violence against women. Bulgaria-based 12 magazine, however, has hit a new low with an inexplicable photo spread in its latest issue titled, “Victim of Beauty” [TRIGGER WARNING].

The six images are all close-up portraits of young, attractive white models sporting various gruesome injuries: one boasts a black eye, another a slit throat and a third sports a split lip and a bruised neck. Scrolling through this montage of burns, bruises and gashes, it’s easy to forget you’re looking at a “fashion” photo shoot; the images more closely resemble police files of horrendous domestic violence.

Were the magazine spread a deliberate attempt to raise awareness and generate conversation about our society’s failure to prevent…

Important info from Dear Kitty showing that when it comes to Creationist nonsense the Fundamentalist Christians don’t have all the bullshit – Islam, Hinduism and Judaism want a piece of the action as well…

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA says about itself:

Two Creationists take home schooled kids on a tour of a natural history museum filling their minds with Young Earth Creationist Bullshit.

25 June 2011.

On a world scale, the most important opposition to evolution biological science comes from Christian creationists; who are influential especially in the economically and militarily most powerful country of the world, the USA. They claim to draw the only correct conclusions from the comparatively long and detailed creation narrative in the Bible book Genesis.

Less importantly, there is opposition to evolution science from within other religions. In Hinduism, eg, the Hare Krishna organization attacks the “materialistic” theories of Charles Darwin and later biologists. This is not that surprising, as the Hare Krishna organization is rather extreme within Hinduism. The organization developed at first not in India, but in the USA, with influences from US American fundamentalist…

The Road to ATOS: Part 1 – The Peasant’s Revolt and the Beginnings of the Poor Laws


The Plague, or Black Death arrived in England in 1348 and led to an almost 50% rise in the death rate in the south of the country. Not surprisingly, agricultural production came to a complete halt in many towns both from lack of labour and lack of demand. In addition there was a similar illness in sheep causing many to die and rot where they fell. The peasants remaining realised that this made their labour more valuable and many threatened to quit unless their rents and wages were reviewed. Soon wages for servants of all kinds rose and the elites had, for a time, to pay up.

However, once worker’s numbers increased, the landowners hit back by setting up a medieval wages policy known as the Statute of Labourers.

This law required workers to accept wages at pre-plague levels or suffer imprisonment. The legislation also restricted peasant’s movements, demanding they remained in their town and insisted they worked for a whole year and could not charge by the day or leave their jobs. By the 1350s over 600 justices had been sworn in to support this law. Landowners, with the assistance of armed thugs, forced their tenants to work for virtually slave wages and regularly used violence to keep their peasants in check.

The higher wages earned by peasants led to an increase in social prestige and security. To combat this, the elites passed other laws that attempted to regulate the dress of the lower orders. They were scared that the workers would dress better and therefore appear similar to their superiors, leading to the blurring of the rigid lines of social demarcation. A statute passed at this time dictated the appropriate clothing for each class of society. Yeomen and craftsmen were not to wear clothes more than a certain value and were forbidden to wear fur or jewels. These laws even regulated the diet of the poor. Servants could not eat meat or fish more than once a day and the rest of their meals were to consist of only milk, cheese, butter and bread.

Subsequent to this, whenever there was a popular rebellion, the poor, in defiance of these laws, stole and ate as much of their masters’ livestock as possible.

As well as regulating dress and diets, the landholding classes attempted to control every aspect of the natural environment. This was the beginning of enclosures which hemmed off common land. Fens were drained which meant that reed beds, which had formerly provided fishing, fuel and building materials for the poor became off bounds. The rich also diverted rivers to create private ponds and lakes which they then stocked with fish. Laws were passed guarding against poaching and the catching of fish, but it was impossible to stop this activity completely. For instance, in 1356 on one night over 100 swans went missing from the ponds at Arundle Castle.

In 1356 further laws laid down punishments for labourers who left the service of their masters to go to another town or county.

So-called ‘masterless men’, workers who roamed the country looking for work, were targeted the next year.

The war with France led to the introduction of three Poll Taxes. The third tax in 1380 led to much popular opposition and many people removed their names from the electoral roll causing the crown to send out commissioners in 1381 to track down the missing taxpayers.

Shortly afterwards the Peasants’ Revolt started in Brentwood, Essex. The uprising began at the time of the major church feast of Whitsun, and quickly spread across many counties of the south and Midlands of England.

Wat Tyler is the most famous leader of this revolt and it is thought he came from Maidstone in Kent. The rebels targeted those who had close connections with the Royal Court and destroyed the houses of the wealthy and the despised tax records wherever they could.

This period also saw the emergence of an English heretical tradition that stressed a return to a simple Christian faith purged of its worldly trappings. The rebels called for the end of priests, attacked the veneration of images and denied the efficacy of pilgrimages to the relics of saints. The religious rebels were known as Lollards.

King Richard and his army met Tyler’s men at Smithfield. The two men spoke and the rebel warned the King Richard II that the lords of the kingdom would regret it if they did not concede to the rebels, and accept the laws were to be based on English common law.

There are conflicting accounts of what happened next, but Tyler was probably killed by the Mayor of London’s squire and eventually beheaded.

The London Gaol was raided and the occupants released. All over the south of England rebels pursued landowners and in many cases killed them.

Eventually armed men subdued the various groups of rebels with the King himself taking a keen personal interest. King Richard oversaw a royal commission in Chelmsford and gave out 31 capital sentences to the men considered the ringleaders.

12 men were also dragged it to the gallows. It is reported that King Richard said, “Rustics you were and rustics you are still; you will remain in bondage not as before but incomparably harsher.”

This established a pattern for the authorities for many rebellions that followed. The uprisings were put down with extreme force with many summary executions. Then the severest penalties of law, hanging, drawing and quartering were given to the ringleaders. Their mutilated bodies were then taken around the kingdom to serve as reminders of the penalties for treason.

In 1388 the Statute of Cambridge was passed which strengthened the existing Statute of Labourers and established most of the foundations for the later Tudor Poor Law. This is the first time the distinction was made between able-bodied beggars, capable of work and impotent beggars, incapacitated by old age or illness.

This crucial distinction has endured to the present day and we see its modern version in the Work Capability Assessment Tests being carried out by French multinational IT company ATOS.

Tomorrow – I show how the state continued its attacks on the poor and working class up to the present day, including the abuse and awful treatment of children.

TOP DOCUMENTARY FILMS

We just watched a nice little film entitled: “Why I am no longer a Creationist” it’s the second film in the series. the first was: “Why I am no longer a Christian”

This is what the author has to say: I’m no longer a creationist or a Christian… these videos are some of the reasons why. I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this stuff because my family and friends are all fundamental Christians like I was… so I thought this may be a good way to start discussions and be able to finally get it all out there.

There are many well-meaning creationists who have just been misinformed. It takes a good deal of time to come to a thorough understanding of a major scientific theory; and many just don’t have the luxury of investing enough. They often become the unwitting victims of a few charlatans, and of their own confirmation bias.

It is the evangelical creationist leaders who are the main targets of my criticism. These men and women either should know better; or they are deliberately lying.

In a rare moment of sense, the Department for Education has revised its model funding agreement, allowing the education secretary to withdraw cash from schools that fail to meet strict criteria relating to what they teach.

Under the new agreement, funding will be withdrawn for any free school that teaches what it claims are “evidence-based views or theories” that run “contrary to established scientific and/or historical evidence and explanations”.

The British Humanist Association (BHA), which has led a campaign against creationism – the movement that denies Darwinian evolution and claims that the Earth and all its life was created by God – described the move as “highly significant” and predicted that it would have implications for other  British Humanist Association looking to run schools.

Don’t you just love it when Christians get on their high horse and proclaim,

“But I’m not that kind of Christian…”

Those of us who don’t believe your story don’t give a feather or a fig about your doctrinal ravings. We’re not interested in the silly details that distinguish you from the next sect or cult. Those things only matter to you. 

And, if you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and holds the Key to Everlasting Life, then why not get his name right for once?

Jesus is the Roman version – remember the folks you claim nailed him up? The actual Jewish name is Yeheshua or something – imagine that – Christians claim life, the universe and everything is about this one bloke then get his name wrong.

GOP: Hurricane Isaac A Message From God

As journalists nationwide are connecting the dots of dumbness regarding Todd Akin’s connection to Lyin’ Paul Ryan and Mike Huckabee, something important, something directly from God Almighty to the Republican Party, is on its way: Hurricane Isaac.

Yes, just as a mighty preacher named Pat Robertson proclaimed that Hurricane Katrina was a message from God Almighty that America was going down because of gays and Liberals, I am here to proclaim that, because the Republican Party has conducted a war against women, God Almighty has sent Hurricane Isaac to disrupt their all-but-holy convention in a city ironically named Tampa.

And Mike Huckabee, champion of Christian bigotry, is slated to open, well, let’s just call it “the blow-out in Tampa”.

Huckabee has been right out in front regarding Todd Akin’s stunningly idiotic remarks about so-called legitimate rape and its…

Is Torture Still Illegal?


Torture is a brutal attempt to destroy a person’s sense of dignity and sense of human worth.  It acts also as a weapon of war, spreading terror beyond its direct victims to communities and societies.

States must take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture in any territory under their jurisdiction.  There are no exceptional circumstances whatsoever — whether a state of war, or a threat of war, internal political instability, or any other public emergency or national security situation.  States’ obligations also include the duty to provide effective and prompt redress, compensation and rehabilitation for all torture victims.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture,  26 June 2012

And yet in the Guardian we read:

“Detainees who claimed they had been tortured were treated dismissively by officers at Dover immigration removal centre, prisons inspectors have said. Reports by officers at the Kent centre lacked photographs, body maps and judgements on whether scarring matched alleged abuse, inspectors found.”

Compare this response to how government officials act on terrorism and organised crime, yet torture is illegal in any circumstances under international law. The UK Government’s attitudes are disgusting and illegal under law.

Whoever Controls Reproduction Controls the Future


I owe a great intellectual debt to my partner Sooz. She correctly identified REPRODUCTION as the key battleground in this crucial stage of human affairs.

When we look at the issues facing us at present, several interconnected problems loom large; Overpopulation, Anthropogenic Climate Change, War and Crazy Religions all threaten all life on this amazing planet.

And all these factors are related to human reproduction.

When women have full control of their own fertility, overpopulation will become a thing of the past. All evidence shows that birthrates drop when women are empowered.

Climate change is due to the unfettered growth in human numbers, industry and transport. When there are less people there will be less CO2 released into the atmosphere due to a reduction in the rearing of livestock for food and agriculture, less manufacturing of useless articles for profit for the few, less transport leading to more area for forests and wildlife.

War is almost always caused by men, usually for power and control of resources. The factors mentioned above are likely to lead to more and deadlier conflict. When there are less people there will be reduced pressure on the environment and more space.

Clearly we need to get men out of positions of power so they can’t start wars.

Nation states are also responsible for wars so the sooner we move on from this outmoded system of organisation the better.

The ‘Us and Them’ mentality is part and parcel of this medieval mindset and must be left behind if we  want a future.

Finally, Crazy Religions provide the justification for all of the above. All the major religions are made by men for men. They are all misogynist and have led to the infantile mental states suffered by many of our fellow humans. They lay a death wish on humanity while they pretend to offer eternal life.

Even now, as the ecosystem struggles to cope with the pollution and poisons emitted by our insane industrial production, as the oceans are dying and we are witnessing the largest extinction event ever – at this very moment – male (and some female) nutters try to restrict abortion and deny women reproductive rights.

If I believed in a supernatural world I would say religions are the Devil incarnate. But happily I know there is no God or Devil therefore our problems are wholly caused by us.

So this means we humans can turn around this terrible state of affairs. We have the power – we can do it. 

But we have to let women manage human affairs before it’s too late. As my American sisters and brothers might say, “We’re drinking in the Last Chance Saloon”

That is why we’re calling for a paradigm shift in human thinking and saying the Future must be Female.

Otherwise there will be no future for us all.

Religions must die so humanaity can live.

Let’s take the fight to the religions – let’s win the war for the future.

A gun is a weapon with some woman’s child at both ends


Marx said history was the record of the struggle between classes, but it’s also the record of the War on Women, for women are always on the losing side; a gun is a weapon with some woman’s child at both ends.  There’s never been a time when there wasn’t a War on Women.

Greece, the cradle of so-called democracy, didn’t allow women to vote; Rome’s power was built on violence and was ruled by a succession of Emperors. It evolved to become the Roman Catholic Church ruled by a succession of Popes, while the Anglican Church was founded on the murder of women.  Christianity is one of a triumvirate of misogynist religions that claim God’s male and whose books sanction violence to women.

Feudalism was based on the Great Chain of Being with God at the top, man next and women below with the animals. With industrialisation women were forced into factories, mines and prostitution.  Britain and Germany grew rich and spent the money on arms, causing two world wars. Men claimed women couldn’t be trusted to vote and resisted equality everywhere.

Women have been held back in employment and education, are still paid less, are abused and ignored while at the same time caring for more people, never starting wars and rarely using violence.  The latest instalment of the War on Women is rightly receiving attention as US females protest attacks on their reproductive rights – but let’s not get confused – this is just another skirmish in an ancient conflict.


Womanifesto!


The Womanifesto is the philosophy underpinning the novel

DOG Sharon: The Future is Female 

The Womanifesto calls for a positive re-evaluation and adoption of what have traditionally been referred to as Female Values and Perspectives with a corresponding paradigm shift in human affairs.

By this we mean an emphasis on cooperation and community rather than competition and individualism, with society organised to protect its weakest members, namely children and the elderly.

In the present global economic system we are told there is no alternative to production being governed by the Market.

However there can be no production without people and people are created by reproduction.

Therefore whoever controls reproduction controls production and future human society.

This explains why religions and other bastions of male power have worked so hard to regulate and deny female sexuality. These sad people kill to oppose abortion, fight against birth control and do anything to prevent children getting proper sex education.

The rulers need our children for their wars and as workers, but they don’t want to acknowledge the power of reproduction.

They can’t let the women speak out.

So they denigrate the Feminine and attack women because they’re scared.

When women manage reproduction, the risk posed by overpopulation – probably the biggest challenge facing humanity – will quickly diminish and our species will no longer threaten all other life on the planet.

If women see a future where their children will be working for slave wages or die in wars or starve or die of thirst – if women see this, they will refuse to bring more children into the world.

Why should women give birth to children in a society that abuses most of the people most of the time, a society that lets tens of thousands of kids die each and every day from preventable causes?

Women everywhere are demanding change, and will not be denied. The genie is truly out of the bottle.

The existing order is based on violence or the threat of violence. But as violence creates more violence this is obviously counterproductive.

Women and children suffer most from wars and crime, face sexual assault, domestic violence and constant harassment.

Violence in all its forms must become a thing of the past.

We’ll need new politics for this new society and we’re calling it Lowerarchy.

Everybody knows a hierarchy is a pyramid-like structure with power concentrated at the top. This model worked well for kings, emperors, presidents, prime ministers, warlords and tyrants of every kind, and when allied with military might, has allowed these dictators to dominate the vast majority of people for the last several thousand years.

Hierarchies are part of our heritage, but then so is cannibalism: both have no place in a modern egalitarian society.

Government has developed from the absolute rule of kings and is the means by which the few dominate the many – so is part of the problem not a solution.

Lowerarchy is the opposite of hierarchical organisation.

In the Lowerarchy there will be no need for leaders as there will be no nations to lead. Local people will decide for themselves how to live and manage resources.

Then artificial national boundaries can be dissolved, and with no nation states to defend, armies will become redundant so can safely be disbanded.

Likewise, security services can be dismantled as we would all be on the same side.

The policies of the powerful nations, from colonial times to the present, have caused great inequality in the world, both at the level of continents and regions and for individuals.

We propose a couple of modest rebalancing policies.

Second, if we want a world where everybody truly feels equal, then let’s reflect that in the economic sphere.

We suggest a One World, One Wage policy.

It’s a simple plan. Everybody gets paid the same salary. So cleaners get the same as bankers, teachers are equal to dinner ladies and mums valued as much as soccer stars.

So we run society just like a big co-operative – because that’s what we are.

And as we truly are all in this together, obviously those that can’t work will be cared for: that’s what society’s for.

Once this is implemented, and in tandem with the debt default, much of the inequality will soon be squeezed out of the system. After the real price of labour has been factored in, the true value of any good or service can be calculated.

The alternative to the above?

Catastrophic overpopulation, continued unfettered competition and the commodification of everything, wholesale destruction of the natural world, mass extinctions, more pollution and greenhouse effects on the climate, a further widening of the gap between the rich and poor, loss of civil liberties, wars over resources, famines and the likely destruction of the species.

It’s time we changed the way we live –

Let’s make the Future Female!
