The Crime of our Time

Danny Schechter, popularly dubbed “The News Dissector,” died earlier this year. He had an illustrious career in journalism and went on to become one of New York’s higher profile political activists. A regular blogger for disinformation, he also wrote the book “The Crime of our Time,” about the largely unprosecuted series of white collar crimes that led to the financial crisis of 2008 that Danny had presciently forecast in his film In Debt We Trust. Remembering Danny, here he joins and becomes a big part of the March on Wall Street.

How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll

811+aY5djDLThe paperback edition of Peter Bebergal’s book Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll is out today. To celebrate we’re republishing our exclusive interview with Peter:

Disinformation: You seem to struggle somewhat to define “occult.” Is it a loaded term?

Bebergal: For a word with such a simple definition, the “occult” has lost almost all meaning, as when you say a word over and over again until it sounds made-up. When I told people I was working on this book, the responses were wildly different, and extremely prejudicial. Some folks assumed I was writing only about the devil and rock music, others—believing the occult to be nothing more than base superstitions—thought the project had no merit, and then there were those that assumed, and hoped, I was going to be making metaphysical claims. I’m sure there were others who worried about my soul. There are just too many preconceived ideas to give it a single satisfying definition.… Read the rest

5 Sessions • Starts October 22

To see the schedule and purchase the package, go here.

We are all being called upon to transform through a profound shamanic journey. But too often we are held back by ignorance and fear. We feel alone and uncertain about the best way forward.

How do you know when you have received the “call” to enter onto the shamanic path?

Why, when you go through your initiation, do you have to face your own dark night of the soul?

When might plant medicines be helpful in the initiation process, and how might they lead to connection to Source without entheogens?… Read the rest

Thinking Mobility Further

As a concept, “mobility” is a trendy, hot-button term. From academia to the corporate sector, considerable thought (and large sums of money) is being invested in researching how people move – within communities, across regions, and around the globe.

But mobility as a reality is not new. From the earliest hunter-gatherers, humans showed a tendency to move from place to place, adapting to suit environments and adapting those surroundings to suit them. Humans are, by nature, mobile creatures. It’s how we got where we are today.

As technology enhanced the quality of life for inhabitants of this planet, so too has it improved and expanded our mobile lives. We can go places faster and more efficiently than ever, be it for work or play. Moreover, mobility no longer necessarily means going some place at all. We can see and speak to people across oceans in milliseconds. We can use machines at our fingertips to control other machines a world away.… Read the rest

Become a Chemtrail Buster with the FREE Wilhelm Reich ‘Orgotron’ Chem-Cannon

cannonWe were recently contacted by someone concerned with climate change, saying “it is our firm belief that our weather is being manipulated.”

They were “involved with a team whom presented to the IPPC panel in France recently and following on from their presentation to the panel we have come to the conclusion that we are wasting our time with a diplomatic approach, they ignore all of our concerns and we are no further forward after months of hard work.”

The alternative approach is to take direct action against alleged geoengineering by, for instance, building a Wilhelm Reich ‘Orgotron’ Chem-Cannon and using it to “bust” chemtrails. The individual requested:

Please could you encourage your community to just build one device in support of this important cause and pass on this information to interested parties and encourage them to build?

So, with that in mind, you can find all the details of how to build a Wilhelm Reich ‘Orgotron’ Chem-Cannon here.… Read the rest

Introducing the United States Open Source Party

An interestingly diverse group — musician (Krist Novoselic), techno/countercultural author (R. U. Sirius), Internet maven (Jon Lebkowsky), and former political consultant turned sports blogger (Nathan Wilcox) — is forming the basis for an Open Source Political Party that will ultimately be co-created, like any Open Source project, by collaborative participants from all walks of life.

This sounds suspiciously like an attempt to create democracy within a party structure. One downside of democracy is the difficulty scaling participation to effective governance. A goal of the United States Open Source Party is to create a successful,, open organization that will propose as well as model a participatory governance structure that actually works, in the way that open source software projects — if not democracy itself — have worked: imperfectly, but well enough to deliver ongoing value.

The United States Open Source Party is based on simple but powerful principles:

Laws, policies, and political processes are seen as a body of code.… Read the rest
