    Christianity has failed...

    Friday, February 3, 2012, 7:34 AM [General]

    After 2000 years the Christian project has clearly failed. The world is worse now than when they started. If there is power in their prayers, why has warfare, pain, hunger and misery increased? Leaders claim to be Christians and then buy arms and start wars.

    The Roman Catholic church is simply a financial and psychological scam. It has murdered, abused, burned and otherwise preyed on people for centuries and its priests continue to harm children.

    The Church of England, a copy of the RC church created for English political expediency, is almost dead. How could a spiritual movement start by cutting off a queen's head?

    The Evangelical Movement is a joke - most children can see through their so-called doctrines. Does any sane person really believe that people speak in tongues, that there's a heaven and hell and Jesus was the son of god?

    We need to move on.

    And quickly.

    Womanifesto

    Thursday, February 2, 2012, 3:56 PM [General]

    The Womanifesto is the philosophy underpinning the novel

    DOG Sharon: The Future is Female

    The Womanifesto calls for the global adoption of Female Values and Perspectives with a corresponding paradigm shift in human affairs.

    By this we mean cooperation rather than competition, 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 female sexuality.

    The rulers need the 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 would they give birth to children in a society that abuses most of the people, most of the time?

    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 then this is obviously counterproductive. 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.

    The first is that antisocial debts, whether at the international level such as money supposedly owed by poor nations to rich, or by ordinary folk to financial institutions, should all be cancelled.

    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.

    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 – the Future is Female…

    Bye-bye Military

    Thursday, November 10, 2011, 5:05 PM [General]

    Hello Global Community.

    If there were no countries, there could be no enemies and therefore no need of armies.

    Think of all the good those brilliant people in uniform could do if they weren't training to kill other brilliant folk or being killed themselves.

    We could be brave in other ways.

    It's not your fault!

    Sunday, November 6, 2011, 11:26 AM [General]

    You are not responsible!

    The idea that everybody is fully responsible for their actions is called the DISPOSITIONAL FALLACY by social scientists.

    In other words, we wrongly assume people could have acted differently in particular circumstances, and therefore that we would have been more honest, brave, moral, kind, whatever if we were in that situation.

    However research shows that most folk pay too little attention to the situation and too much to the individual when blaming others for their actions.

    Didn’t Jesus say something about throwing the first stone?

    Let’s have more compassion and less condemnation.

    We are all the same animal.

    It's the system that needs changing.
