FREE Julian Assange; FREE Chelsea Manning; FREE Us All
My hero, our hero, our solidarity genius, who made it possible for us all in the whole world to know so much of how, of what and why the evil powers who rule us do against us so that they can make the world in their image of wealth and power. Assange exposed so much of that evil for us all to see. We can not let them take him from us.
Assange is our blood.
Assange is our consciousness.
Julian Assange is the embodiment of what our artist Leonard Cohen sang:
From bitter searching of the heart,
Quickened with passion and with pain
We rise to play a greater part.
This is the faith from which we start:
Men shall know commonwealth again
From bitter searching of the heart.
Thank you Chelsea Manning! We are happy you are free again.
Sorrowful interlude: Brave Chelsea said NO to the Man again and landed in prison, in isolation, yet again, and did so with honor and guts and in solidarity with a fellow fighter for peace/equality/justice--Julian Assange. It ought to be such that all of us who stand with what Chelsea stands for stand up for her now--spread the movement everywhere, alongside climate pioneers, antiwar warriors, antiracist resisters--Build One Great Movement!
#The original writing occurred when Chelsea was released from prison. At that time I wrote: While Obama did this one good deed in eight years of evil-doing, we must remember that it was he who put Manning in prison in the first place. It is Chelsea who should be president and not Obama, Clinton or Trump!
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke
THE RUSSIAN PEACE THREAT:Pentagon on Alert
new book by Ron Ridenour
Jette Salling collage of my new book. This poster in Danish advertizes my lecture-discussion on the subject of War and Peace, US domination, the lack of sovereignty in Denmark and Europe in face of US's globalization. "Is Russia a war or a peace threat".
Western democracy claims to be the best system in the world because it promotes a multi-political party system with regular elections in which all citizens (except prisoners and ex-prisoners in many states) are officially allowed to vote. This system of "democracy" actually is the dictatorship of elites, the capitalist class and its allies.
"It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms." - John Stockwell, former CIA official and author.
Ernesto Che Guevara represents to me the struggle for justice, social equality, participatory democracy in which the producers are the owners and major decision-makers, once the capitalist economy based on greedy profit for the few is abolished.
Herein can you see many articles about the elite system of hypocritical democracy, how it needs control over us, how it nurtures on wars to expand. You can also see several of my books in the theme section, and many articles about Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Denmark, the wars against the Middle East and other countries.
There are revealing and sad articles concerning the genocide of Tamils by Sri Lanka's Sinhalese governments aided by most of the world: west and east, socialist and capitalist.
HERE for an analysis
of the US-NATO permanent war age.
"The rulers’ definition of terror is so broad that it fits most anything or anyone, except the ruling class’ governments and their military officials."
HERE for "Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka" and "Sounds of Venezuela" November 2011 book launching in Chennai, India. Excerpt:
"We have wandered over the deserts and the seas. We have been hungry and thirsty. We have been murdered and tortured. We are of the working class, of the castes; we are many races and nationalities. We share a common vision: freedom and equality; bread and water on the table; a shelter over our heads. We must fight together to live in peace and harmony."
HERE for a good read
about Cuba: investigating property and human rights. Excerpt:
Clad in cycling shorts and rubber-cleat shoes, Rolando hefted his racing bicycle over his shoulder and climbed the stairs to the Popular Power Havana Municipal Government building. He swung open the glass front door and, without glancing about, strode straight toward a staircase. Clerks looked up surprised but no one interfered with this odd spectacle.
I followed up the stairs with my bicycle upon my shoulder and we walked into an office.
HERE is my analysis
of the year 2011 and what awaits us.
Internationalism is an endless struggle, an endless challenge. It does not end even when one or more of our political parties take over the governing reigns. We activists must always keep our wary eyes pinned on the leaders, regardless of their names, just as our clear eyes cast light upon humanity’s future.
