2012: Turn Your Back on The Cities of Death

Kevin Annet, speaks out on the genocide against the indigenous people of Canada and how the residential school system killed 50,000 or more children. With the continued whitewashing and cover-up of these atrocities he calls us to turn our backs illegitimate institutions.


Watering the Garden

Published in Far West Almanac, September 2009. I keep wondering when I will wake up and find that I have somehow gotten stuck in a chapter from Robert A. Heinlein's book Job: A Comedy of Justice. In a parallel universe this must be a big joke. It seems that Los Angeles in particular is at the forefront in showing the…


Beware the Pharmaceutical

balcony harvestIn the Americas we don’t know whether what we are eating is genetically modified or not. We don’t know what other types of additions we are getting in our meat and dairy either. Food is also “enhanced” with all kinds of vitamins and minerals as well as flavorings, toxins, colorings and preservatives. These are the sorts of things that we should be worrying about in defending our right to unadulterated food.

Our food has been allowed to become toxic and is creating disease. It is not a bacterial “germ” that is bringing about our demise. It is the insidious and ever-present man-made filth that is creating extinction and disintegrating our nervous systems.

To be even more honest with you…sometimes I wonder if it isn’t a conspiracy of some sort, in fact this is right on track. The ultimate evil conspiracy. It turns out that the real war-crimes criminals behind the Nazi’s concentration camps were the executives of the pharmaceutical company IG Farben. Not only that but you may have heard that Donald Rumsfeld is behind pushing through aspartame despite the fact that the FDA had refused to approve it for 16 years. Interestingly pharmaceutical companies have also been accused of genocide before the International Criminal Court in the Hague.



A Language Older Than Words

"Fearing death, fearing life, fearing love, and fearing most of all the loss of control, we create social rules and institutions that mirror our fears and reinforce our destructive behaviors."

Nov 4th, 2004: George W. Bush “Wins” His Second Term of Presidency

It was the fourth of November 2004 and we were making our way through the narrow vibrant pathways of the Central Market in Phnom Penh. We were looking for the food court section planning to try out local Khmer breakfast. We stumbled out of the produce section with a couple of staple items — peanuts and longuns (the longuns in Cambodia are small but especially juicy, tasty and cheap) and found ourselves walking down a long row of butchers. Each stall had a different type of meat. Slabs of freshly cut pork ribs hung in one stand. The next displayed huge cow livers and other offals. Plucked chickens dangled above an arrangement of chicken feet across the way.

Arriving at the end of butcher’s row we passed through the central heart of the market from which its branches spoked out. This section was well lit. It gleamed and sparkled with the gold and gems sold at the stalls in that area. We passed into another branch and arrived at the food court.

We were newly arrived in Phnom Penh and had not had a chance to sample Khmer breakfast, so we explored the section to see what sort of fare was being served. It seemed to be mostly a basis of noodle broth soup with several variations. Neither of us particularly wanted soup that morning. Luckily, in the far corner was a fried noodle and rice station. We sat down and had a familiar meal instead of getting too adventurous. I found a drink stand and somehow ordered an ice-coffee that was pure condensed milk and took it back to my noodles in a take-away bag with a straw.

We were just settling down to our food when a young lad approached us selling newspapers. Today was his lucky day. George Bush had just “won” the U.S. presidential election, making it impossible to refuse to buy a paper. There on the front of The Cambodia Daily the long reach of U.S. politics smiled triumphantly out at us in the form of George W. Bush. We glanced over the article and finished off our noodles, wondering what the next four years were going to bring.
