Asbestos Head Chapter 10 - Competitive Education

Pot Head
-Competitive Education-

Pot Head’s a rural area high school teacher who does drugs with his students.  He holds degrees in education, sociology, and psychology and has been using marijuana, opium, and psychedelic mushrooms in the classroom for years.  He argues that many teenagers are experimenting with even harder drugs in a destructive manner, distracting them from schoolwork, causing them to skip classes, fail and drop out.  However, when introduced correctly in an educational context, certain plants can provide a passion for knowledge and introspection.  They create an open, fun, and loving atmosphere in which true communication can be built between fellow students and teachers alike.  99% of Pot Head’s special life skills class graduates go onto college; all other teachers see improvement in grades, behavior, and notice a genuine love for learning among his students.  His classroom approach is simple but unorthodox: Comfortable swivel seats in a circle.  No tables, textbooks, boards, papers, pens or other distractions from true education.  Just many young minds perfectly aligned glancing excitedly with curious eyes.

Pot Head closes the door and takes his equal seat in the circle.  Welcome to Life Skills.  As you all know We’re going to be taking drugs and talking in this class.  We’ll be going on mushroom field trips, writing opium poetry, smoking pot and discussing Our thoughts, and that’s about it.  No notes, no syllabus, no homework but books you choose and only one rule: Truth.  Everyone must swear they’ll only speak their true feelings in this classroom.  Education is not memorizing information; it’s knowledgeable exploration of yourselves.  What I want to teach you here is the truth about yourselves, so if you lie to each other or me, it disadvantages Us all. Speak honestly and if We touch on subjects you wish not to talk about, simply say so and We’ll move on.

First of all you’ll notice We’re sitting in a circle - the one, and only suitable seating configuration for a classroom. Sitting in rows facing front takes focus off each other and places it on fantasy objectives.  Switching to rows of separate desks came about during the industrial age with motives focused not on education theory, but toward creating a populous pre-accustomed to a factory-like setting. Nowadays nothing has changed and it can’t because there are too many students, too few true teachers, and too little funding.  So it serendipitously happens that the state enforces banker-hour school days, five days a week, with standardized testing, textbooks, and curriculums designed to compete students against all others for high grades and praise from the boss at the black board; then after school are often required to continue their competitive development in the wonderful sports programs, universally allocated more money than the arts. 

From 1852-1918 state education was optional in the US. Then after that it was mandatory only for 9-12 year olds, 10-12 weeks a year, and even that was met with extreme opposition. They've slowly lengthened the time and age range until now 4 year olds are in preschool and 26 year old doctors are still being indoctrinated.

The Destroyer of Ignorance

If you don't want to resist
then you'll have to trust.
If you don't know
where you are going
you have 2 options.

I do not need
another signpost.
You only need signposts
if you've left home.
They help you
find your way back.

You are either responsible for everything
or you are responsible for nothing.
Once you have made your decision
you will not be in need of help.

Only True
Human Beings
will survive.

What use is love
without lovers?

Shower me with love &
you'll get everything.
Inflict violence on me &
you will get nothing.

First Responders NOT Invited to 9/11 Anniversary

They risked their lives. They had no time or 'luxury' to ponder 'who done it' - whether it was Osama Bin Laden or an Inside Job, they had to act. Well over 343 first responders lost their lives, horrifically, doing so. Many have since, contracted cancers and other diseases, due to the toxic air and materials they had to be in contact with, and there have been deaths as a result, but neither the sufferers, nor their bereaved families, have received any compensation!  And this shameful treatment of these incredibly brave individuals continues, adding insult to injury (and deaths), by not even inviting the survivors, and their families, to the main anniversary of 9/11.


Corporate-Funded "People's" Movements

Surely a movement run by a man working with foreign interests against his own nation would be considered sedition in every sense of the word. And regardless of how well-intentioned followers of such a movement were, ultimately their efforts would be contributing to a future entirely removed from their genuine ideals of progress and change.

Progress is not only an attractive motivation for political participation, it is a responsibility for those who wish to leave future generations with something more than what they have now. However, danger arises when progress is pursued politically rather than pragmatically, where people, not solutions are hoisted to the pinnacle of our attention and efforts. This is precisely the case unfolding in Thailand, where a man, Thaksin Shinawatra, his party, and his agenda have taken to the driver's seat of a contrived social movement called the "red shirts" and ultimately threaten the destiny of the very people committed to this hoax.

Thaksin Shinawatra himself was a former adviser to the globalist equity firm, the Carlyle Group, and was literally standing in front of the CFR in NYC on the eve of his ousting from power in 2006. Since then, he has been represented by some of the largest lobbying firms on earth, including fellow Carlyle man James Baker and his Baker Botts law firm, the International Crisis Group's Kenneth Adelman and his Edelman Public Relations firm (also a corporate sponsor of the "color revolution college", and Belfer Center adviser and IISS trustee Robert Blackwill of Barbour Griffith & Rogers.

The Terminal Stages of the US Dollar

This week I'm celebrating the anniversary of the greatest heist in recorded history; exactly 40 years ago yesterday, President Nixon severed the dollar’s ties to gold forever.  It was a government game so the politicians could easily pay off their debts with “cheaper dollars” for the foreseeable future.  In reality, this one decision effectively stole all our dollars’ value for decades to come. And you and I are the ones still paying for this mistake. Not the rich, us the ordinary middle class people.  Strangely this decision created the $4 trillion Forex market and eventually sent gold above $1,800 an ounce this past week.  Gold was $35 and ounce when Nixon made this decision.

You and I - (We) are now in the terminal stages of the worlds most gigantic pyramid scheme of all time: The US Dollar. It is set to vaporize the assets of the average citizen and level the life style of North Americians to a level of lifestyle more similar to the rest of the world (think Asia, South America and Europe).  So now is thew time to protect what's left of your nest-egg, before the dollar collapses fully, rendering your dollar-denominated assets almost worthless.

Letting Go

Hanging on is a painful process.
Letting go alleviates suffering.

All conversations
are with the Self.
Imaging otherwise
is delusion.

Everyone lives
in a world
of their
own making.

Victims are controlled
by their creations.

Go back to your first memory & then take one more step backwards and you will know what you are & where you come from. That's if you're interested. If not, dream on.

A projector projects
lights onto a screen.
When the light is intense
it burns out the screen.

to project
pictures on;
That is I.

What the London Riots Can Teach Us

The reference to throwing stones at the bad man, you being a whore and a slave and the lemons used by rioters to counteract tear-gas, this song, decorated as a lovely flowery, alternative pop-tune is a subtle awakening to the power of mass revolt.

Whether the recent UK riots were the work of a bunch of idiots, a secret service lead plot to encourage higher police powers or whatever mixture you may like, we did see the power of the masses at work. Big Brother may seem powerful but there are only a few of them, and they don't like the idea of the masses waking at once to face them.

I do not see violence as a solution to anything but refer you to an ant. An ant can't push down a large tree, but he can with a team remove its foundations and witness it tumble. As you can't force out a government by replacing it, force then is useless, we can though on mass, remove the foundations on which it stands. We could for example, on mass, over the Internet, organize yearly days where we choose not to work, we choose not to pay tax. We could on mass stand against unfair laws, standing peacefully against bullshit statute "laws" and make a difference.


It's a Bird, It's a Plane... No, It's Super Congress!

This debt deal has given birth to a new “Super Congress”. A so-called committee of 12 that will formulate a plan to handle the deficit crises. This is a sham. The Congress has literally crumbled the Constitution into a huge paper ball and tossed it in the waste paper basket. 12 members are going to represent 435 Congressional districts and there will be no debate, no amendment and no filibusters allowed when the committee comes forward with its “recommendation”.

If, by some miracle, the Congress as a whole votes down the recommendation; then the OMB will slash the deficit on its own. Now, remember there is more than one way to reduce the deficit. If I were a betting man I would wager that tax increases rather than spending cuts will be the avenue of choice. Let’s talk about the constitutional problems with this legislation.

Asbestos Head Chapter 9 - Free Will Junkies

Machine Head 
-Free Will Junkies-

Machine Head is Cyborg.

Cyborg are collective and simultaneously subjective beings identical to humans in every way except for their brains, which are in constant data transfer with both one another and a computer-generated Mother Brain.  Through silicon technology and forced genetic mutation, all cyborg have comprehensive sense transceivers allowing any member of the collective to fully experience the epistemological, visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, and gustatory sensations of any other.  All information is instantaneously sent to each other and the Mother Brain - an outside server that stores their every experience, even after the death of their bodies. 

This eliminates the human concern for understanding and self-preservation because the entirety of their experience is remembered, maintained, and accessible to all cyborg at any time.  As a result most cyborg live alone and haven’t the slightest desire to procreate.  Survival, love, and understanding are all secondary to what they describe as the intensification and appreciation of the Now.  They are inherently emotionless and opinionless by human standards because of their complete disidentification with self and thought.  Feeling and bias are only expressed in the interest of aesthetics as they consider these things to be high-art happening in real-time.  Overall their behavior closely parallels humans except for a couple quirks like these and that cyborg are all artists of one kind or another; Machine Head is lead singer in a hard-core heavy-metal band.  Tonight's show is already underway as Asbestos enters the building.
