Many contemporary art galleries have become confectioners of art culture. That is to say, often the works of art hanging on the white walls of your typical contemporary art gallery have no…
It’s Monday here in Citizen’s Cab world, my first day back on the job after a crazy weekend that saw the entire world protesting Herr Presidente’s Muslim ban at many of the major airports. Taxi drivers in New York (comprised of many a Muslim) were on strike over at JFK.
For the mainline liberals and conservatives who lament the punching of Richard Spencer, the young white supremacist activist who coined the term “alt-right,” Nazism remains a theoretical construct, an “idea” that can…
On 27th January 2015, then Mayor of London Boris Johnson signed an order increasing the data collection capability of the Metropolitan Police Service’s (MPS) number plate camera network by 300%. He achieved this without adding any cameras.
I’ve decided to sell off my gigantic book collection on eBay. It’s very heavy on the independent, “alternative,” unusual, subversive, fascinating, etc. Much of the material is scarce and collectible. After…
DURING THIS STRANGE and difficult time, I have, as a spirit worker, attempted to draw connections between the past, present, and future, connections which could shed light on how things got this way. In the process I came across the following reflections. I would like to share with you my thoughts on how occult forces can emerge in the human psyche , and how that can have political implications.
The internet has been ablaze in the past week with talk about punching nazis, ever since white nationalist Richard Spencer was clocked at Trump’s inauguration celebrations. While ethicists interviewed by Mic, and philosopher…
The other day I wrote on the value of swinging Left in modern politics. In doing so I took some liberties with generalization and exaggeration in order to demonstrate a point I believe…
By the grace of God, and/or Mother Nature, I’ve been doing quite well working Citizen’s Cab 1015 over the last couple of weeks, what with all of the cold and rain that’s descended over the Bay Area.
When Rachel Maddow finished a 26-minute monologue that spanned two segments on her MSNBC program last Thursday night, her grave tones indicated that she thought she’d just delivered a whale of a…
(Originally posted at Gods & Radicals) Blood stained paper, two empty handles of liquor lying on the ground like young soldiers left to die in some sand-swept hellscape. The curtains are drawn,…
The last decade or so in politics has seen the rise of an almost infinite array of groups, associations, organisations and movements, each with a specific modulation of the core principles of the Right or the Left.
The unfettered version of American capitalism, in which public welfare is privatized and inequality is at record levels is to blame for the current climate of hatred and scapegoating.
I’m traversing the streets, en route to the Citizen’s Cab lot to pick up my taxi, out on the industrial edge of town. And there is torrential rain, downed trees and flooding… BAD!
You can’t miss either of the two operative buzz-words being bandied around like so much meaningless noise in the last few months. The media rails about it, politicians whine over it, activists shout it….
If we’d like government to catch up sooner rather than later, the solution is not to activate the other side’s lizard brain with fiery arguments and ridicule; the solution is to play to our strengths by moving the ship forward.
Admittedly, that’s more than a bit of a click bait headline, but underneath it lies a legitimate inquiry about the nature of human psychology.
The Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton just suffered an astounding defeat to Donald Trump, a sexist and racist reality show star who they and their media lackeys categorically dismissed as inadequate and a joke.
It’s noon, and a little cold out. But with clear beautiful skies above San Francisco. We’ve got a respite from the torrential rains, before they’re set to start again early in the week.
One of the terrible things about being a long bastion of bomb-throwing, fire-starting, up-against-the-wall-fascist-killing type of Anarchism is you have to mingle and jive with the enemy.
Prophesy matters. Prophecy can change the future. One form of prophesy is being able to access time in a nonlinear form. A kind of astral projection that isn’t limited to the present.
NEW YEAR’S EVE, somewhere in Florida. My host has finally slipped into his mushroom trip, meaning the tribal drums are being brought out.
A SECOND LOOK AT LEARY’S EIGHT CIRCUIT MODEL: GURDJIEFF’S LAW OF OCTAVES AND THE MAJOR ARCANA OF THE TAROT

Daemons Don’t Hang Out in Pizza Shops, They Live in the Darkest Reaches of Your Repressed Imagination
If there’s one thing I’ve learned since the last piece I tossed up about the terrifying stupidity of pizzagate, it’s that people reeeeeeaaaaaaalllly want to believe the world is secretly controlled by sadistic Illuminati Occultists.
