Men's Culture in Archearchy - a 3 step checklist by Clinton Callahan

Every now and then a phrase comes along that strikes sleeping brain cells you didn’t know you had. Startled, the neurons wake up and perceive the electrifying impact with uncanny alertness. How soon your brain cells go back to sleep again depends on how ready you are to jump fully-committed into that new-found alertness and ride it like a bucking bronco.

Beware The Psychopath, My Son...  by Clinton Callahan

I make the effort to share this information because it gives me, at last, a plausible answer to a long-unanswered question: Why, no matter how much intelligent goodwill exists in the world, is there so much war, suffering and injustice? It doesn't seem to matter what creative plan, ideology, religion, or philosophy great minds come up with, nothing seems to improve our lot. Since the dawn of civilization, this pattern repeats itself over and over again.

 

Slaying The Jabberwock by Clinton Callahan

The Jabberwock, of course, is the modern capitalist / patriarchal / empire meme-virus that is infecting the global ethnosphere and threatening to exterminate life on Earth. This article is a mini-handbook empowering global #OCCUPY teams to build interconnected, resilient, leaderless, nonlinear, social systems that make the Jabberwock irrelevant.

 

Will Any Humans Become Post Carbon? by Clinton Callahan

100 Million Nanonations by Clinton Callahan

A superstition is an easy-to-understand concept that has no basis in reality. Believing a superstition blocks the perception of more useful possibilities. But superstitions are not called superstitions until they are recognized as superstitions. Before then they are regarded as the truth. A superstition that participants in modern culture have not yet identified as a superstition is “the nation-state.” This superstition became popular in the 1800s as a win-lose game (“If you get the resources we die, so we will do whatever it takes to get the resources.”). This superstition includes the concept that a nation-state is connected to a piece of land on Earth. Since all the land on Earth has already been claimed by the current 206 nation-states, it is assumed that no new nation-states can emerge on Earth. But the connection between a nation-state and a plot of land is not a law of nature. It is invented in the imaginations of human beings, pure fiction, a story marketed to you by – you guessed it! – the current set of nation-states.

Preparing Yourself by Clinton Callahan

Rob Kall from www.opednews.com gave us a key to personal action when he said: I'm coming to believe that the answer to rescuing America is not to take the giant corporate behemoth head on. Mammals did not make war with the dinosaurs. They were ready to adapt when the world changed. Our dinosaurs are doing the damage which is wreaking havoc on their world. Next culture mammals are relocalizing and building communities that will survive the last breaths of the corporate dinosaurs as they crash to their deaths. The world is rapidly changing. Does your thoughtware allow you to adapt? ...

 

Redeeming Your Underworld by Clinton Callahan

Do you own your underworld? Or does your underworld own you? The question can put a chill down your spine.

Where Does Intimacy Go? by Clinton Callahan

You may remember the magic of first love, the attractive glow that transports all your circuits into a dimension beyond the limitations of time, energy, or reason. It seems as if it could never go away – and yet, in time, it does. You remember past moments of intimacy rather than experiencing new moments now. The walls have built themselves back up. Where does the intimacy go? And how can you get it back again? ...
