UPDATE # 17
November 1st, 2014
Ubuntu Port Alberni-Canada
Wow it was just this day that I realized that it has been awhile since my last update. There are many things that have been happening since September. Everything from municipal elections to Ebola, which there are still many questions, only because of TV programs that have let us know in either cartoon hints or out right in the krrrrrrap produced in Hollywood and for public consumption, media and other outlets, to The running down of the 2 soldiers in Quebec, and the shootings in Ottawa, even there, there are a whole lot of questions about that incident, I will not call it a terrorist attack! Because at this point it was a man who was mentally ill.
Watershed Logging: Through many small short briefs presented to city council, we now have the city backed into the corner, they have requested a meeting with me to DISCUSS our concerns. Well, to us it is a victory, as we have proven, beyond a shadow of doubt that Island Timberlands is at fault for the increased turbidity, and consequently, the forced spending on an upgraded water plant, and consequent 11.5% tax increase next spring. There is another question that remains, that is: How come the city councillors and city engineer not scream bloody murder? Well there has been discovered that the mechanism was in place for halting the logging, ALL residents check your community charter, here is the piece that has been discovered in Port Alberni, an exert from our Community Charter:
In the CC, the responsibility of a Councillor 115 (a) to consider the well-being and interests of the municipality and its community;
A council may, by bylaw, regulate, prohibit and impose requirements in relation to the following: Section 8 (3) (i) public health;
Spheres of concurrent authority (note this is with the Province)
9 (1) This section applies in relation to the following:
(a) bylaws under section 8 (3) (i) [public health];
10 (1) A provision of a municipal bylaw has no effect if it is inconsistent with a Provincial enactment.
Area of jurisdiction
11 (3) If a municipality has established works or facilities outside the boundaries of the municipality for the purposes of a municipal service, the council's power to regulate, prohibit and impose requirements in relation to the use of those works and facilities may be exercised outside the boundaries of the municipality.
Request for assistance in relation to intergovernmental dispute
284 (1) If a dispute arises between a municipality and
(a) another local government, or
(b) the Provincial government or a Provincial government corporation,
and the parties cannot resolve the dispute, one or more of the parties may apply to a dispute resolution officer for help in resolving the dispute.
If we do not stand up for our right to water, it will be PRIVATIZED, it has already been declared in Bill C-37,vpassed in the omni bus bill of 2012.
Municipal Elections: The Municipal Elections have been particularly interesting: In Port Alberni we have 23 candidates, running for the 6 seats that will be for 4 years, a very questionable move by many; 7 Mayoral Candidates, the most exciting election since the first Mayor in 1902.
The best and most interesting part, Citizen's for a Local Economy adopted Ubuntu's shortened version of the overall program, which has had a great reception, so much so that I was asked to run for a councillor.
Well It didn’t take long for me to realize that if I wanted to “play in the elites sandbox” I would have my hands tied by the pre determined laws for a pre determined outcome. It has actually got those running to take a serious look at their program, as every platform is regurgitated program from years gone by.
This program also takes arguments away from those who are running, as their arguments are based on lies and deceits, what they have been indoctrinated with. A good base for those running in the municipal elections . And then the Federal election coming up next year.
Michael Tellinger is correct when he says the best way for change is from the bottom up, as going for that 1 big home run needed for a victory. Smaller victories are much more effective, and for those that play chess, it's like playing with a rookie.
Well by far the most controversial killings that have happened, by the way the first question is about the 2 soldiers that were run down in Quebec. What reason was the man outright killed? Seems to me that every chance was there to catch the culprit and allow due process to be followed. Instead they out right killed him...
Ottawa shootings: well there are many questions there.
Question, how is it that a MP aid caught on camera the OPP and RCMP setting up 20 minutes or so before the incident?
Question: How is it that there were 3 camera men placed in 3 different locations to film this incident?
Question: How come cops were caught laughing on camera prior to the rush into the Parliament buildings?
Question: Exactly what reason was the security stepped down that day?
The other interesting thing is how in the hell can the increased powers given to CSIS be rammed through virtually right after the incident? It takes months of discussions even prior to any legislation to be passed.
I have done the research, but it is time for you to look it up.
Ebola: Well I may have been hasty in calling this a complete false flag prior to stating this. Research has been confusing at best, you must remember that when Ebola was first 'Discovered” in Africa, it was a relatively quick virus that took many victims, and supposedly more localized. Now ironically, it winds up in Europe, and North America, and has mutated to the point where it is contagious even in cold weather. I also have to question how the CDC and the US military have patents. It will be years before we really know the truth. All indications are it has been purposely introduced. And I cannot discount the one report I saw that 3000 crises actors were hired. So allows for many more questions.
We all know how successful Ubuntu's program really is, as long as we work towards the 4 main programs, we will be successful by passing on our victories, and accomplishments no matter how small they are, as that will give us all ideas someone may have not thought of. Not every one is politically motivated, although we have other talents and abilities, there is a place for everyone in Ubuntu.
Updates are a good way to communicate ideas, things that have and have not worked, Also points of view that do affect us in working towards are goals. There s a great ways for us to get our message out.

When government no longer rules for the benefit of the people, then we must takes steps, that are non violent in nature, and slowly take back our rights as humans so we do not end up any longer in a slave based society. For those who think they are not slaves, take a good look around you. When cities and countries get bankrupted, it is only because its citizens no longer have a means to support themselves (MONEY, JOBS), when you cannot pursue your natural talents and abilities, and when you cannot enjoy a healthy life style , you are a slave. Here is a video that shows there is a different way to take on the corporate entity, that is destroying our environment, poisoning our food for .... MONEY !https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKKsZ6dvg7g
TO WATCH VIDEO CLICK ON ABOVE. Published on Aug 28, 2014 "In 160 communities in nine states, we've been passing rights-based ordinances that strip corporations of their constitutional so-called rights; that enshrine the right of a local community to govern itself by community majority; and ban specific activities which are legal but which the community considers harmful." Community Rights organizer Paul Cienfuegos notes that the laws they're passing are illegal: "They're direct frontal assaults to unjust law, which is how real social change happens," like the American revolution and anti-slavery movement. He describes two recent laws now being challenged in major lawsuits, saying organizers are positively excited about this opportunity. Episode 274.

Humans have a real option!
As far as Sacred Geometry unfolds, everything is unfolding as it should.
As for the last month we have seen many Ubuntu's from around the world connect, as it should, and thus a real grass roots movement is increasing in a larger and larger amount.
Even FIPPA in Canada is unfolding as it should, and I would suspect soon our communications with each other, will be limited or non existent, so it must be recognized that we should have a plan in place to
continue Ubuntu's work all over Canada, and the rest of the world.
Michael Tellinger, after his election experience in South Africa, decided the route to go is after city councils, as the powers that be have indoctrinated them into their positions and believe that is how we shall unseat the ones at the top. I know in British Columbia, our government has passed some pretty outrageous laws, such as allowing logging companies to log in the watersheds, thus forcing the city to spend millions of dollars on upgraded facilities, at tax payers expense just to hand it over to private industry, and we become slaves to ensure we continue to get water as long as we pay industry, not to mention still pay our property taxes.
Already more people across Canada are doing just that, as well as our recycling, our transportation, and electricity, have been paying a ever increasing amount. I must applaud Burnaby BC, for taking its legal challenge to court over the Kinder Morgan Pipeline. Although the city lost, now they should use their influence on the public and take a much larger stand! Burnaby, step up the pressure!
To go along to get along is no longer an acceptable practice. The fight for clean public water is not over in Port Alberni, it is in fact ramping up. With more and more citizens beginning to wake up. By taking on the seat of power from the bottom (municipal level) undermines the foundation so called illusionary power that it rests on! We all want that one major victory, well here is where it starts, the so called powers at be have removed themselves so to remain untouchable, or so they thought.
Know your opponent! Know what playbook they are using! Also know that as one we can make a difference. Let us change our tactics, they have grown used to ours and know what will happen, they have us beat before we start.
WE as one can fall this mighty blight we have on our planet.
I would like to also take this opportunity to congratulate all the Ubuntu
movements and welcome them and all involved to a real alternative.
In order to understand the very basis of money, it is best to contemplate how it developed in the first place.
Once society developed past the clan stage, when barter, trade and so forth arose, it became the practice to place value on the products of human energy expended. If one used one’s energy to build a bow, go out hunting, kill an animal, process the carcass, and transport the meat back to be traded or bartered for, this gave that meat value. The bow components were free, as was the animal. The same was true for the farmer, who expended meaningful energy in tilling, sowing, tending, harvesting, and, if need be, transporting what that farmer produced. The produce had value. Even the gatherer expended meaningful energy in seeking things to gather, then transporting the find back to be used as “money” for other things. The miner expended the meaningful energy to find the (free) ore, hew it out of the earth, and transport it.
From these beginnings, the practice of using coin and other objects arose to represent this meaningful energy expended when transporting large amounts of goods, as well using to acquire something another had but not having the specific thing the other wanted. And from this, humans went on to bills when coins and jewels and other objects became too cumbersome. And, lately, we have added electronic funds, as even bills are cumbersome in million unit, billion unit and trillion unit transactions. But the foundation of all these monetary units is the meaningful energy expended, whether human or resource-based (oil, coal, nuclear, etc.) energy.
Given this, it becomes clear that an addition of abundant energy — in the form of overunity (“free energy”) and robotics (to replace human energy in necessary work nobody wants to do), the need for money in any form — barter, trade, work exchange, coin, bills, electronic funds — becomes unnecessary.
If one removes the cost of the energy — human and external — all down the line, what is left is freely given by this planet we inhabit.
Now, of course, many would say, “But there is no ‘overunity’ to be had!” And in that, they would be incorrect. There have been many solutions to energy production and distribution which have been avidly suppressed and hidden by the power elite. They are fully aware that by adding energy which is free, their power over others, in the form of money, will dissipate, leaving each to control oneself but no others.
Though there are examples of things such as cars that run on water, extracting energy from the planet’s magneticfield, and so on that have had patents bought and buried, or threats to lives (of the inventors themselves as well as their families), to actual murders, I know of one such technology that not only offers overunity, but also gravity control. And, unlike most of these other examples, is negentropic (negative entropy) in its function. Cooling is seen in this technology, as opposed to heating.
That science/technology is electrogravitics.
Back in the 1950s, electrogravitics, with the Biefeld-Brown Effect as its foundation, was being pursued at all the major aerospace companies: Lockheed, Boeing, Convair, Lear and many others were excitedly exploring what electrogravitics had to offer. Sometime, around 1959 or early 1960, this work became highly classified and, though ostensibly for its “weaponization” concerns, the true reason it became highly classified was because of its overunity capabilities. The power elite grasped that that was the biggest threat to their continued control.
As a source of energy, electrogravitics is ideal. From it, We can have energy that is free of pollution, is easily constructed, and does not contribute to the entropy of the universe. Because it is so ideal, and because the power eliteseem bent on Naziesque control of the planet — with “Patriot” Acts, NDAA’s, TSA’s, and other fascist enactments — it is vital that the awareness of such technology spread to the tipping point.
If we can achieve that, Humanity will demand this tech and free itself from:

Lately it has eluded me as to what to write about, a writer’s block one might say! I read the newspaper which is a rarity, as we all know how untruthful the media is, sensationalized , and negative it is; oops, there I go, anyways out of the paper there was a good letter to the editor defending the rights of the homeless in Oppenheimer Park located in Vancouver, BC. This letter was very enlightening as it very clearly stated that the homeless have a right to a safe shelter, and thus is the reason they congregate in numbers, for SAFETY, also in the paper was an article about more younger women joining gangs. Lesson: SAFETY IN NUMBERS.
The very threat of predators, particularly in the above mentioned groups, sends people congregating in groups suggesting strongly that people are very much a social creature, and do develop stronger ties with in that community. They also mobilize when they are threatened! Yet we who are chasing after money, are so blind that we cannot see the predator coming at us.
Individually, Capitalism (predatory beast in itself) continues to pick us off one by one, and yet we wish to remain individuals thinking that we are safe from a predator so viscous, so lethal, cunning and devastating, and here we are , On social media, isolating ourselves, individuals by our selection of cars, homes, cloths, and perceived social stature; that capitalism is picking us off, one by one.
Take a good look around you this day, when you finish work and go home, you have dinner, sit at the tube, get on Facebook, or spend countless hours being alone, you only relegate your going out to some function that promotes individualism, or other venue, yet when it comes to a regular social gathering, we hide from each other. There is no need for that. We are one, and as such can come up with many and positive concrete ideas to protect the whole community, and our families.
First Nations, all over the world have realized this, and so explains the reason they have such a strong belief in the community coming together as ONE. We have that ability ourselves, but we must get over our overinflated egos, our strong belief in the monetary system, and adapt to overcome the most dangerous predator in existence. Ubuntu has that blueprint, a SOCIETY without money, a society that utilizes people’s natural abilities in all aspects of life that can create an abundance in food, shelter, clothing, everything imaginable, and still maintain an overall respect for our planet that we live on!
IF IT IS NOT GOOD FOR ONE OF US, IT IS NO GOOD AT ALL!
Charles Eisenstein, The Fix Waking Times
Be it drugs, alcohol, porn, overeating or whatever your personal addiction, put an abuser in a playground and see what happens.
You’ve probably heard about those addiction studies with caged lab rats, in which the rats compulsively press the heroin dispensing lever again and again, even to the point of choosing it over food and starving themselves to death. These studies seemed to imply some pretty disheartening things about human nature. Our basic biology is not to be trusted; the seeking of pleasure leads to disaster; one must therefore overcome biological desires through reason, education, and the inculcation of morals; those whose willpower or morals are weak must be controlled and corrected.
The rat addiction studies also seem to validate the main features of the War on Drugs. First is interdiction: prevent the rats from getting a taste of drugs to begin with. Second is “education” – conditioning the rats into not pressing the lever in the first place. Third is punishment: make the consequences of taking drugs so scary and unpleasant that the rats will overcome their desire to press the lever. You see, some rats just have a stronger moral fiber than others. For those with a strong moral fiber, education suffices. The weak ones need to be deterred with punishments.
All of these features of the drug war are forms of control, and therefore sit comfortably within the broader narrative of technological civilization: the domination of nature, the rising above the primitive state, conquering animal desire with the mind and the base impulses with morality, and so forth. That is, perhaps, why Bruce Alexander’s devastating challenge to the caged rat experiments was ignored and suppressed for so many years. It wasn’t only the drug war that his studies called into question, but also deeper paradigms about human nature and our relationship to the world.
Alexander found that when you take rats out of tiny separate cages and put them in a spacious “rat park” with ample exercise, food, and social interaction, they no longer choose drugs; indeed, already-addicted rats will wean themselves off drugs after they are transferred from cages to the rat park.
The implication is that drug addiction is not a moral failing or physiological malfunction, but an adaptive response to circumstances. It would be the height of cruelty to put rats in cages and then, when they start using drugs, to punish them for it. That would be like suppressing the symptoms of a disease while maintaining the necessary conditions for the disease itself. Alexander’s studies, if not a contributing factor in the drug war’s slow unraveling, are certainly aligned with it in metaphor.
Are we like rats in cages? Are we putting human beings into intolerable conditions and then punishing them for their efforts to alleviate the anguish? If so, then the War on Drugs is based on false premises and can never succeed. And if we are like caged rats, then what is the nature of these cages, and what would a society look like that was a “rat park” for human beings?
Here are some ways to put a human being in a cage:
--Remove as much as possible all opportunities for meaningful self-expression and service. Instead, coerce people into dead-end labor just to pay the bills and service the debts. Seduce others into living off such labor of others.
--Cut people off from nature and from place. At most let nature be a spectacle or venue for recreation, but remove any real intimacy with the land. Source food and medicine from thousands of miles away.
--Move life – especially children’s lives – indoors. Let as many sounds as possible be manufactured sounds, and as many sights be virtual sights.
--Destroy community bonds by casting people into a society of strangers, in which you don’t rely on and needn’t even know by name the people living around you.
--Create constant survival anxiety by making survival depend on money, and then making money artificially scarce. Administer a money system in which there is always more debt than there is money.
--Divide the world up into property, and confine people to spaces that they own or pay to occupy.
--Replace the infinite variety of the natural and artisanal world, where every object is unique, with the sameness of commodity goods.
--Reduce the intimate realm of social interaction to the nuclear family and put that family in a box. Destroy the tribe, the village, the clan, and the extended family as a functioning social unit.
--Make children stay indoors in age-segregated classrooms in a competitive environment where they are conditioned to perform tasks that they don’t really care about or want to do, for the sake of external rewards.
--Destroy the local stories and relationships that build identity, and replace them with celebrity news, sports team identification, brand identification, and world views imposed by authority.
--Delegitimize or illegalize folk knowledge of how to heal and care for one another, and replace it with the paradigm of the “patient” dependent on medical authorities for health.
It is no wonder that people in our society compulsively press the lever, be it the drug lever or the consumerism lever or the pornography lever or the gambling lever or the overeating lever. We respond with a million palliatives to circumstances in which real human needs for intimacy, connection, community, beauty, fulfillment, and meaning go mostly unmet. Granted, these cages depend in large part on our own individual acquiescence, but this doesn’t mean that a single moment of illumination or a lifetime of effort can liberate us fully. The habits of confinement are deeply programmed. Nor can we escape by destroying our jailers: unlike in the rat experiments, and contrary to conspiracy theories, our elites are just as much prisoner as the rest of us. Empty and addictive compensations for their unmet needs seduce them into doing their part to maintain the status quo.
The cages suffer no easy escape. Confinement is not incidental to modern society, but woven deeply into its systems, its ideologies, and our own selves. At bottom are the deep narratives of separation, domination, and control. And now, as we approach a great turning, a shift in consciousness, we sense that these narratives are unraveling, even as their outward expressions – the surveillance state, the walls and the fences, the ecological devastation – reach unprecedented extremes. Yet their ideological core is beginning to hollow out; their foundation is cracking. I think that the lifting (still by no means assured) of the War on Drugs is an early signal that these superstructures are beginning to crack too.
A cynic might say that the end of the drug war would signal no such thing: that drugs make life in a cage more tolerable and absorb energy that might otherwise go toward social change. The opiate of the masses, in other words, is opiates! The cynic dismisses cannabis legalization in particular as a small, barely significant counter-eddy in an onrushing tide of imperialism and ecocide, an innocuous victory that does nothing to slow the onward march of capitalism.
This view is mistaken. Generally speaking, drugs do not make us into more effective cage-dwellers: better workers and consumers. The most notable exception is caffeine – significantly, virtually unregulated – which helps people wake up to a schedule they don’t want to live and focus on tasks they don’t care about. (I’m not saying that’s all caffeine does, and in no way do I want to demean sacred plants like tea and coffee, which are among the only herbal infusions or decoctions still taken in modern society.) Another partial exception is alcohol, which as a stress reliever indeed makes life in our society more bearable. Certain other drugs – stimulants and opiates – also may serve these functions, but are ultimately so debilitating that the guardians of capitalism recognize them as a threat.
Yet other drugs, such as cannabis and the psychedelics, can directly induce nonconformity, weaken consumer values, and make the prescribed normal life seem less tolerable, not more. Consider for example the kind of behavior associated with marijuana smoking. The stoner is not on time for work. He sits around in the grass playing his guitar. He is not competitive. This is not to say that pot smokers don’t contribute to society; some of the wealthiest Information Age entrepreneurs are reputedly smokers. In general though, the reputation of cannabis and the psychedelics to be disruptive of the established order is not without foundation.
The halting but substantial steps in several states and countries toward cannabis legalization is significant for several reasons beyond the well-known benefits regarding crime, imprisonment, medicine, and industrial hemp. First, it implies a release of the mentality of control: interdiction, punishment, and psychological conditioning. Second, as I just discussed, the object of control – cannabis – is corrosive to the cages we have lived in. Third, it is part of a deep shift in consciousness away from separation and toward compassion.
The mentality of control is predicated on the question of whom or what is to be controlled. Drug War thinking blamed the individual drug user for making poor moral choices, a view grounded in the theory that social psychologists call dispositionism – that human beings make free-willed choices based on a stable character and preferences. While dispositionism acknowledges the influence of environment, it says essentially that people make good choices because they are good people, bad choices because they are bad people. Deterrence, education, and interdiction spring naturally from that philosophy, as does our criminal justice system at large. Judgment and paternalism, inherent in the whole concept of “corrections,” are built into it, because it says, “If I were in your situation, I would have done differently than you.” In other words, it is an assertion of separation: I am different from (and if you are a drug addict, better than) you.
Note as well that the same belief motivates the War on Terror and, well, the war on pretty much anything. But there is a competing philosophy called situationism that says that people make choices from the totality of their situation, internal and external. In other words, if I were in your situation, including your entire life history, I would do as you do. It is a statement of nonseparation, of compassion. It understands, as Bruce Alexander shows us, that self-destructive or antisocial behavior is a response to circumstances and not a dispositional weakness or moral failing. Situationism motivates healing rather than war, because it seeks to understand and redress the circumstances that give rise to terrorism, drug addiction, germs, weeds, greed, evil, or any other symptom we go to war against. Instead of punishing drug use, it asks, From what circumstances does it spring? Instead of eradicating weeds with pesticides, it asks, What conditions of soil or agronomy are causing them to grow? Instead of applying extreme antiseptic hygiene and broad-spectrum antibiotics, it asks, What “climate of the body” has made it a salubrious environment for germs? That is not to say we never should use antibiotics or lock up a violent criminal who is harming others. But we cannot then say, “Problem solved! Evil has been conquered.”
Here we see how drug legalization is consistent with the reversal of a millennia-long paradigm I call the War on Evil. As old as civilization itself, it was originally associated with the conquest of chaos and the taming of the wild. Through history, it came to incinerate whole populations and nearly the planet itself. Now, perhaps, we are entering a gentler era. It is fitting that something from nature, a plant, should be a hinge for such a turning.
The growing movement to end the drug war might reflect a paradigm shift away from judgment, blame, war, and control towards compassion and healing. Cannabis is a natural starting point, because its widespread use makes the caricature of the morally weak abuser insupportable. “If I were in the totality of your circumstances, I would smoke too – in fact I have!”
Marijuana has long been vilified as a “gateway drug,” the argument being that even if it isn’t so dangerous itself, it ushers a person into the culture and habits of drug use. That canard is easily debunked, but perhaps marijuana is a gateway of another sort – a gateway to broader drug decriminalization, and beyond that, toward a compassionate and humble justice system not based on punishment. More broadly still, it may offer us a gateway away from machine values toward organic values, a symbiotic world, an ecological world, and not an arena of separate and competing others against whom one must protect oneself, conquer, and control. Perhaps the conservatives were right. Perhaps drug legalization would mean the end of society as we have known it.
