Since Michael Passed in Costa Rica last year, as executors, we have been inundated from people all over the world both in RBE, environmentalist and Vegan circles with requests to arrange for his project “art for a sustainable world” to be displayed.

Michael’s last artwork, unfinished, recovered from Costa Rica:

For this year, Saturday 26/9 2020, we have kindly been offered space at The Retreat Animal Sanctuary to put some of Michael’s artworks on show for the day.

We will also be holding talks on the five steps to freedom and the RBE (resource based economy) , sharing information and looking for engagement with groups, volunteers , from the community for the evolving RBE Network

crops NOT shops will be opening their second base at The Retreat and their will be talks from Chay Godfree who is driving the project.

One year ago on 26/9 The RBE and VEGAN community lost dedicated activist Michael Green. A permanent memorial was set up for Michael at the Retreat Animal rescue and Sanctuary in Kent. A rescue Michael spent time holding talks and classroom events, fundraising and engaging with the animals.

On the 28th of September 2019 just two days after Michael’s passing, many activists gathered at the Retreat, to write words, memories, share stories and spend time with each other in memory of Michael’s life, though the gathering was so close to 26/9 that there was no time, at that time, to organise any larger event, and, Michael artwork has still not been recovered at that time.

Before Michael  left on his last trip to Costa Rica, we sat and discussed his on going activism and artwork and how best to incorporate what works he still had in his possession into the RBE Network activism campaign.

As an artist myself, Michael took me through an unfinished art piece based on Morpheus in the Matrix,  a piece that was stolen at an event over ten years before and that he felt so important had repainted from scratch, he asked me to complete it for him and marked out where and what colours he wanted used as he no longer had steady enough hands due to the illness, to complete the intricate parts remaining on the painting, and left it with me to complete as he made his way to Costa Rica for a last chance to get ahead of the cancer.

The painting will be displayed unfinished form the last time before work begins on finishing the piece in line with his instructions.

Other artwork going on display for 26/9 “art for a sustainable world” will be Michael’s TV sets and computer screens that were recovered with only days notice of being cleared  and disposed, the paperwork and legalities of recovery and “ownership” as the system puts it, took us right up to the deadline. The sets have had some cleaning and restoration since recovery.

Recovery day photos:

 

Also on display at “art for a sustainable world” will be Michael’s office chair from the “Tears for the Earth show”

The Soundtrack:

The MG 269 event soundtrack is now in print with all eco packaging / inks etc. The album contains the soundtrack for the art exhibition as well as additional tracks for Earth Liberation previously only available in Japan.

The album will be available at the event on 26/9 or inbox FISHINABOX RECORDS on facebook or @Fishinapot on Twitter to reserve a copy.

FYI – This is a strictly limited print run, there will be NO REPRINTS people so its a case of get it now if you want a copy.

The location:

https://www.retreatanimalrescue.org.uk/

The Retreat Animal Rescue is a 60 acre site and safe home for 1500 animals rescued from abuse , neglect and animal agriculture. The site is based in the rolling country side in Kent, the closest station is Ashford International and there is a bus to Cripple Hill that takes about 30 minutes (information link below)

https://www.rome2rio.com/map/Ashford-International-Station/Cripple-Hill-High-Halden-Ashford-TN26-UK

The Retreat is a fully vegan sanctuary with an amazing vegan cafe, the menu is exceptionally good and suitable for all ages , there is an on site thrift shop and adoption programs are available for those interested in further supporting the sanctuary’s work.

The significance of 26/9:

Michael passed away on a symbolic date for animal liberation: Calf 269 is a bull who was rescued as a calf by anonymous activists, days before his planned slaughter. The significance of the event led to the creation of “269 life”(fr:269 Life France), an animal liberation movement founded in October 2012. The 269 life movement celebrates the life of CALF 269 and raises awareness to the unethical unnecessary suffering endured by enslaved calves for wealth hoarding corporate profiteers.

269 is probably the most common animal rights tattoo or brand globally today.

Join us and engage with the RBE Network and explore the movement for real change, not a politics thing, not a money thing, not a flag waving thing , or race, cult, country thing, this is simply the movement for the free world charter, and how people are taking steps to achieve it outside of all pyramid power structures.

There are very few people on this Earth like Michael Green, become part of the movement that shared his vision of a better world and let’s build a better world, without sanction of Government, Corporations, System indoctrinated social policing. Thank you Michael Green for your belief, your drive your energy spent in opening the door to joe public to embrace change. We have got this and are taking it forward up and down the country.

To close the post, I am adding Michael Green’s CV. if ever you are caught shy of the RBE Network and forced to write a CV, it probably should look something like this, if it doesn’t you are likely to be forced by the state into mindless work slavery, where your divine human energy, which you can use to shape your whole reality spirit and community for meaningful life, is traded in a one way transaction, for something as meaningless and worthless as money.

Don’t do it to yourself and don’t let other’s do it to you. Engage in the RBE Network and build an exit from slavery. Don;t know where to start ? then join us at MG 269.

 

 

MG 26/9 RBE – ART FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD – Michael Green BACK UP WEBSITE

26/9 RBE – ART FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD – Michael Green BACK UP WEBSITE

As the executors of the late Michael Green’s will and final testament, We have inherited and been entrusted with Michael’s property. Due to a series of system access issues in recovering data from damaged operating drives which held the security access to Michael’s website and social media, we are creating back up’s of his online media work to ensure, as domain names expire, that his work is not lost.

This page is a back up of Michael Green’s website ” Art for a sustainable world” which was created in 2013 and linked to the Zeitgeist festival of 2013.

Where better quality imagery or related images of Michael’s art work around the project “Art for a sustainable World” exist, we have added these to this back up version of the website

All work is still highly relevant and inspirational for RBE activists and thinkers, hope fully by backing up the site here we will ensure his message is still accessible to the public

 

As part of the Global Zeitgeist Media FestivalAug. 2nd-4th 2013, Michael Green was displaying work on Eastbourne Seafront, near The Lifeboat Museum.

Michael featured work advocating a Global Resource Based Economy, on “canvasses” that are examples of our waste of resources.

http://zeitgeistmediafestival.org/

“The way we use technology is completely wasteful.   We duplicate many vacuum cleaners, tools; In the future we will make the best of equipment and make it available to everyone.”

Words: Michael Green

Welcome to Art for a Sustainable World ! Hello and a warm welcome, this is “Art For A Sustainable World”, a site that expresses an artistic viewpoint to some very interesting visions of a saner, safer and exciting new world.

I hope you find the artwork here thought provoking and inspires you to create and consider an open approach to helping the current world dilemmas we’re facing.

Many of the materials I use as canvasses are “thrown away”, “consumer waste”. As I learned how little I actually knew, and the effect of this waste has on our environment, I set about using it as an example to show just how unthinking, we as a species have become, in our quest to own and have more & more consumables…….. A big thank you goes to Ben Murray for helping in such a big way for putting this site together, and Christie for some great photos of Jessie May and Joey with me, reminding me of how children are so much, to use the words Christie used, “in the moment”.

The following poem was written by Christine Rbe Thindi in early March 2014, and is being turned into a global collaborative video.

Thanks to Christine for such a powerful, inspirational and positive piece of writing, and the 100 or so people involved, in 50 countries, for making the video.

There is a Way (to make this world a great place for all)

Financial troubles everywhere
give you no time to be aware
of what it is that causes it
and it all seems so legit
indoctrinations keep you caught
in a state of fearful thought
Money makes the world go round
It’s what keeps the food abound
keeps us clothed and in a home
without it, streets we’d have to roam
sleep on the pavement, starve to death
feel misery till our last breath
We bear the drudgery we hate
because we think that it’s our fate
We have to keep a job or two
enough banknotes will see us through
will pay the taxes and the bills
bliss awaits beyond the hills
make more money to get by
but guess what? It’s all a lie!

We could feed 12 billion souls
if markets didn’t block the flow
Money causes suffering
destroys your soul and everything
the planet is about to die
economic growth has to be high
exploitation is a must
if profits are not to go bust
What is the use if very soon
Earth will look like its own moon
your children will not have a future
just because your lifestyle suits ya
but look at it, does it make you happy?
Or do you feel stressed and rather crappy?
Our offspring raised by institutions
no time and strength for resolutions
families are ripped apart
and so is everybody’s heart
Suppressing who we really are
spreads depression near and far
You are a slave to this whole thing
full of worry and suffering
Half the world has it even worse
they always have an empty purse

But did you know, there’s a better way
where no one can be led astray
where everyone on planet Earth
lives healthy, happy right from birth
no stress, no force, no crime, no war
where all our spirits are free to soar
Technology will do the jobs
robots won’t turn into mobs
most work’s already automated
so why not call the rest outdated?
Let’s just end the reign of money
and we’re not trying to be funny
Without it we will all be wealthy
happy, free and very healthy
Follow our passions every day
with no pressure of earning pay
Saving the planet in the process
that is what is called REAL progress
All we need to set us free
is a Resource-Based Economy!

Words: Michael Green

Mission (2013)……

My mission, simply put, is to find good homes for my art work. I’m aiming to spread awareness of our social and economic issues by artistically creating a talking point with using thrown away objects.

Whether the message be on an old T.V, mobile phone, plastic toy or anything for that matter, the message is clear…….we can begin to embrace a positive movement of change whatever our age,sex,race,nation or belief system.

How would you feel if you had a piece of art that expressed a deeper understanding of our current world problems and solutions?  Enabling you to help spread positive ideas and invite others to investigate our possible future further.  

Mission (2019)……

Excepting around 20 TV screens, “the tears of the world” office chair, and, a small number of paintings which we have keep for the ongoing art displays and RBE awareness campaigns, the rest of the remaining art has been shared, mostly by Michael leading up to the Costa Rica Trip.

We invite people to photograph and share as much as possible, the art displays in detail, to continue to raise awareness and we will continue to work for the RBE Network , now and in the future.

Thinking outside “the box”

Televisions are probably one of the biggest examples we have of our continuous consumption of the earth’s finite resources, constant advertising imploring us to “buy this or that product”. As David Attenborough once said ” Anyone who believes in infinite growth on a physically finite planet is either mad or an economist!” I have painted on many things and I currently focus most of my attention on painting old discarded tv’s and computer monitors.

“Whenever you make a law, “Thou Shalt Not Kill,” some jackass thinks that by making a law, you can control human behavior.  Conditions that exist control human behavior, not the laws.”

As you will see I paint on a variety of “canvasses” and deal with many subjects.

Other artwork projects from 2013 – 2014

Having made some busts from plaster and painting on them, I was also given some mannequins. On one i painted my version of some Jack Vettriano pieces. Another i painted one of the planets after I read that astronomers apparently said “Pluto was no longer a planet.” references to orange in my artwork depicts images of various other species that share this planet with us. None of these are available.

TV’s and Computer monitors:  that have been thrown away, and more than likely those who threw them away went and bought new ones. Ah, the power of advertising, especially on television. And people say it has no effect on our “thinking”! I have given them “names” to make it easier for anyone who would like one .There is the “Eye and Puma”, “This Shit’s Got To Go”, “Amazing No Borders”, “Free World Charter”, “Liverpool” (not available) , “Costa Rica” (not available), “Zeitgeist” None of these are available.

Again, having fallen for the planned obsolescence of buying a walkman music player that stopped functioning a very short while after purchase, I decided to paint it and a, (found in the street) cd. The camera was another aspect of this.

I painted a telephone as a way to pass on the concept of Resource Based Economy, of which The Free World Charter is one of many organisations advocating this direction.

The leaves were something I used in Costa Rica. Interesting that they were flexible enough to allow me to do this. And as I learned at “school” that paper comes from trees this was a way to use paper in the simplest form, without the manufacturing process. None of these are available.

The leaves shown below are the last

This vacuum cleaner was found in the street. Yet another example of the phenomenon known as “planned obsolescence.” Thought I would have fun with the obsession with “cleaning.”

Taking action, with colours

Having been introduced to the ideas of planned and perceived obsolescence and the inefficient waste of our resources and learning about sustainability, I have been doing what I can, through art, to introduce others to these ideas and the people and organisations (far more knowledgeable and practical than I) behind them, some of whom you will find links to on this site.

“If nations join together now, before the big collapse and share their resources, they can maintain a level of sustainability. Sustain the people that is, and not banks and businesses.”

About Me:

PictureHello my name is Michael Green and thank you
for taking the time to stop by this website.

I was born in Cyprus and have traveled far and wide through the years and am currently  in the South East, UK.   I got a very big wake-up call in 1999, being given a book to read entitled,”A Reasonable Life” by Ferenc Mate. It prompted several personal changes.

The chapter called “Television” had the following … “Setting television loose in America was like carpet bombing the continent with Valium…daily”.  I took up painting late 2002 and quickly discovered acrylics and whilst on a “business” course saw a whole pile of computer monitors that were going to be thrown away, because they no longer functioned.

Quickly discovered the adaptability of acrylics and started painting on old tv’s and computer screens.  Not quite certain exactly how many I have done so far, but it’s 50 or so, in the UK, Spain and Costa Rica.

I have a distinct passion to express  views and visions on anything man or nature can muster! Primarily I focus on obsolete T.Vs however I also paint  on leaves, old toys, most electrical items etc as well as walls and furniture.

I really enjoy being able to help spread the incredible benefits we could all one day experience, of a Resourced Based Economy, and my love for painting has grown more and more knowing this.

Costa Rica is where I learned of  The Venus Project and the concept of a Global Resource Based Economy through a series of Zeitgeist documentaries, specifically “Zeitgeist Addendum” and “Zeitgeist Moving Forward” in 2011.

Since then I have become an advocate for this concept and have connected globally with others promoting this. To get a better understanding my suggestion would be to watch Zeitgeist Addendum.

“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with it’s social function, art must show the world as changeable and help to change it.”

Words: Michael Green

Art and the pleasure of the aesthetic must never be underestimated as to it’s the power to change the world. We can see this throughout the ages from the renaissance to the enlightenment and beyond.

The fact is that if we are to avert the challenges that lie ahead and live in a more peaceful and sustainable world then art will play a major role in bringing about that change.

I have certainly not started on this road for my work to sit in my living room. It will not change the world that way. I want it to spread  far and wide, to all parts of this beautiful planet, to  share and light it up and inspire change.

If you appreciate my work and it’s message then please do get in touch and I will get whatever piece you are interested in from my gallery section sent to you, some are no longer in my possession, or I can create a piece that you specifically have in mind.

All I ask is that you cover all the costs from materials to postage. On top of that I would appreciate a donation for my time as this is all I do and all I want to do but I can not do that without your help. Any support I receive will help me to free up more of my time and create ever more socially conscious art to bring about the change we all want and that future generations deserve.

Thank you so much for your kind support. x

“As long as superstition and ignorance prevail, humanity will fall short of eradicating war, poverty, and hunger.”

What Motivates Me?…..

Below are a few links and short videos that have become the backbone and driving force behind my artwork. This is what inspires me to share my understanding of the world and help  spread the awareness of a more sustainable and safer world for all of Earth’s inhabitants. We have now an Eastbourne Website that incorporates all of the principles and visions presented here, as well as current projects and events.

My attempt to have a little fun while explaining the ideas and concepts of an “RBE”. The full version of the “Resource Based Economy / Zeitgeist Movement Game” is just under two hours. This edited version is 50 minutes, and covers most of the “questions”, but with less detail. If you’re interested in seeing the full version, the playlist begins here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqTrKSMxhq4&list=PL2D0E366802CD7E1B

Jacque Fresco coined the term “Resource Based Economy” and goes into detail with this train of thought on his website. Please visit, and check out the “Paradise or Oblivion” video on the homepage. “The Venus Project” : http://www.thevenusproject.com/

The Zeitgeist Movement supports this train of thought… http://www.thezeitgeistmovement.com … and Peter Joseph does a great job of explaining this stuff. If you haven’t seen his videos, here are a few for starters. “Arriving at a RBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVPz7uXLZtI

Many other sites are supporting the ideas and concepts of a Resource Based Economy, such as
The Freeworld Charter: http://www.freeworldcharter.org/en

and A Resource Based Economy http://www.theresourcebasedeconomy.com/

Jacque Fresco (born March 13, 1916), is an American self-taught structural designer, architectural designer, concept artist, educator, and futurist. Fresco writes and lectures his views of sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural resource management, cybernetic technology, advanced automation, and the role of science in society. With his colleague, Roxanne Meadows, he is the founder and director of The Venus Project.As an outspoken social critic. Fresco advocates global implementation of a socioeconomic system of social cooperation, technological automation, and scientific methodology, which he refers to as a ‘resource-based economy.’

Jacques Fresco and the VENUS Project: https://youtu.be/bwJaLFMf7IA

The term and meaning of a Resource Based Economy was originated by Jacque Fresco. It is a holistic socio-economic system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude. All resources become the common heritage of all of the inhabitants, not just a select few.

The Zeitgeist Movement

Founded in 2008, The Zeitgeist Movement is a Sustainability Advocacy Organization which conducts community based activism and awareness actions through a network of Global/Regional Chapters, Project Teams, Annual Events, Media and Charity Work.

The Movement’s principle focus includes the recognition that the majority of the social problems which plague the human species at this time are not the sole result of some institutional corruption, scarcity, a political policy, a flaw of “human nature” or other commonly held assumptions of causality.

PLEASE: don’t run from reality, watch the film and share your thoughts with other viewers in the comments section. Thank you.

Lets Make Everything Free!

The Free World Charter is a statement of principles that has the potential to optimise life on Earth for all species, eradicate poverty and greed, and advance progress.

Neither political nor religious, these ten short principles could form the foundation of a new, advanced society that uses no money, is free, fair and sustainable. They are based solely on nature, common sense and survival.

The Story of Stuff is a short polemical animated documentary about the lifecycle of material goods. The documentary is critical of excessive consumerism and promotes sustainability.

Filmmaker Annie Leonard wrote and narrated the film, which was first launched online on December 4, 2007.

In the mid-1800s, corporations began to be recognized as individuals by U.S. courts, granting them unprecedented rights. The Corporation, a documentary by filmmakers Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott and author Joel Bakan, delves into that legal standard, essentially asking: if corporations were people, what kind of people would they be? Applying psychiatric principles and FBI forensic techniques, and through a series of case studies, the film determines that this entity, the corporation, which has an increasing power over the day-to-day existence of nearly every living creature on earth, would be a psychopath. The case studies include a story about how two reporters were fired from Fox News for refusing to soft-pedal a story about the dangers of a Monsanto product given to dairy cows, and another about Bolivian workers who banded together to defend their rights to their own water supply. The pervasiveness of corporate influence on our lives is explored through an examination of efforts to influence behavior, including that of children. The filmmakers interview leftist figures like Michael Moore, Howard Zinn, Naomi Klein, and Noam Chomsky, and give representatives from companies Burson Marsteller, Disney, Pfizer, and Initiative Media a chance to relay their own points-of-view. The Corporation won the Best Documentary World Cinema Audience Award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.

HUMAN

HUMAN the film REDUX is a refined, shorter version of Human the film that has been cut down where possible yet still maintaining the message of the original film. It has been compiled using youtube, news archive and other footage sources, it looks at the different aspects of the system we live and work in including the government, politics, money, war, healthcare and other social issues. this film is about the world in which we reside and the systems that govern it.

We are all Human and this film is for you: https://youtu.be/VPF4C8e8fLA

Cancer is Big Business

The very first time that I saw this video, I actually shed tears just because this show how we so called human are wicked than the Lion preying over a poor cattle kid. The worst is we are preying over ourselves. We turn our beautiful world to survival of the fittest.

I don’t know how long this video will be here for but if you can Download it and I will post a direct link that you can get this video if you can’t get it from here or you can simply email me pleasuredrink@hotmail.co.uk and I will be glad to send you the link

TROM the reality of me

The TROM documentary is trying to present, in a simplistic way, the world in which we, human beings, live. The world discovered so far, not some idea or personal choice. Moreover we tried to present alternative solutions to current problems and took into account the future, which promises to be more than interesting. An informative documentary, perhaps shocking and disturbing to many, depending on how you digest the information.

The documentary is divided into chapters and sub-chapters due to documentary’s excessive length (13 hours). Also all the parts are connected.

The documentary and website are concentrated, so it is essential to read additional information which can be found in descriptions beside each section and the video player.

Equilism: 21st Century Economy

If Equilibrium is the vehicle for change, then Equilism will be its engine. Equilism will provide the gradual transition from our current system into a Resource Based Economy, with humanity working together and the limitless resources/technology available it will give us the platform to explore and colonize space, the final frontier.

Equilism has one goal, to advance humanity to the next level, to break out from this primitive system that promotes self importance, divide, corruption, poverty and war, it’s a path towards self destruction and we do not want humanity to be remembered as a civilisation that destroyed itself.

We are one human family living on thi

s planet we call home, the barriers we have created between each other have been man-made, which also means we can knock them down. Imagine what we can accomplish with the combined wealth of the world going towards projects, concepts and ideas that can benefit and advance humanity?

The decisions and actions we make today will effect tomorrow, Equilism will better position ourselves towards the next big step for humanity and the ground work we have laid will be ready to be built on by future generations. For Humanity to become a ‘Type 1 Civilisation’, to begin space colonization, exploring new star systems and galaxies, there is no ‘final frontier’ to what we can achieve as it is limitless, and its about time we start putting our potential to good use.

https://youtu.be/njSV5LtVmR4

so here I am
standing alone in the open. i’m here with a message
hoping to repair what’s broken. nature is struggling
humanity’s not on track. we’ve got our heads in the sand
and our pride intact. we seek fulfillment through wealth
but do we achieve it? we want prosperity through consumerism
but is it worth it? have we actually found freedom?
or have we lost it? because all we do is follow a system
and never really challenge it. can you relate to that?
or is the world too blind to see? i’d always seek the truth
but care what my peers thought of me. i saw a different perspective
and struggled by the hour. see i knew ignorance was bliss
but knowledge could give me power. so now i call for humanity
not just for one nation. i’m opposing separation and standing up to segregation
whether religious or atheist, in essence we’re the same
stereotypes are man-made, and it was man who created the game
but are we actually ready to accept this and wake up?
can we put our naivety on the line, or are we always going to collide?
are we ready to make a difference? do we venture into the unknown?
or do we stay in our comfort zones and keep on taking the easy ride?
because at sea it ships that are safest at shore
but no, that’s not what ships were made for. so ask yourself this:
why are you really here? you may find that deep
but my question really is sincere. for my generation
are we mislead as a youth? do we rub off our true purpose due to false misleading truth?
are we prone to propaganda? are we prone to wrong information?
are we taught to judge each other based on religion
sex, race, culture, class, nation
the list goes on. the moral of this poem
may be hard to grasp. I know it’s not something usually heard
and it’s not your average task. but the point is to stop damaging what we cannot re-create
we shouldn’t prioritize selfish desires, and let them decide our fate
however let me tell you, in no way am i perfect and in no way am i better than you
I mean yea i wrote this message myself, but it applies to myself too
so it’s time to start improving and it’s time to start speaking
because resources are lowering and poverty is increasing
we allow cities to get larger, buildings to get taller
but trees to get shorter and forests to get smaller
we’re an ingenious species, we could easily change everything
but we’re made to think different due to decades of conditioning
we conform to education to confirm our own security
yet it’s a biased institution that makes wisdom hold obscurity
is it actually correct? and does it actually judge intelligence?
or is it just listening to our elders, and improving our obedience?
are possessions an illusion of worth? are we tricked in our thinking?
are we trying to buy wholeness and are we trying to buy meaning?
do they always give joy? do they distract us from reality?
do they determine our identity and do they alter our morality?
I mean what are our goals? this really isn’t a joke
can happiness be superficial and our routine a hoax?
do we live for the wrong things? whilst the right things choke?
is mainstream tv legit or can it dictate our attractions?
does it actually bring us together or does it separate us into factions?
we categorize each other via a social hierarchy
but status is made by humans, so who really are we?
is ego destroying eco? are the real problems disguised?
do we really know the truth or does our society feed us lies?
are we actually filling our voids? and does money hold any true weight? could we drop our
precious comforts
to renew our planet’s state? it really is time to stop living our lives in a shell
because doing nothing for others, is the undoing of ourselves
we’re all from the same source, so let’s see it for what it’s worth
we only have one home and that home is planet earth
So are our laws actually just? or can power avoid the prison?
are our governments really innocent or are they flawed in their decisions?
do they actually care for all life? or only for their own health?
do their motives come from morals? or do they just want power and wealth?
they try to justify a war on terror but it’s lasted for over a decade
it’s caused a million deaths so don’t you think they’ve overstayed?
is patriotism necessary? can’t we see it’s prejudicial?
have we forgotten our common grounds and have we forgotten what’s artificial?
I mean am I truthfully British? am i really european?
am i actually a western person? or am i just a human being?
see the media highlight the smallest of tragedies in first world countries
but fail to cover that over 90 million worldwide have died from hunger in 12 years
so where do our priorities lie?
Britain, China, Russia, America, France. Syria, Iran
Israel, Jordan, Iraq. whether western or middle east
everyone deserves peace. no more national wars
no more bodies deceased. let’s come together as one and keep humanity in one piece. so are we going to be responsible?
are we going to take a stand? are we going change our ways and play our cards on the other hand?
I’m not saying I have all the answers and I’m not forcing any suggestions i’m just saying it’s about time we see differently and it’s about time we ask some questions so what will you do? how much will you allow? this is my call for humanity, to create a change and the time to start, is now

Amongst all the pictures of food and nonsense on Facebook sometimes a gem will pop up and remind me why I keep using my account. Thanks to my Facebook friend, Hanna who posted Jamie Dunmore’s video saying, “Stop scrolling and watch this” … I stopped scrolling and watched it… (thanks Hanna). I immediately contacted Jamie asking to interview him…

Self-described as “an aspiring Public Figure/Speaker/Activist that’s trying to expand human consciousness.”, Jamie Dunmore’s spoken word video, “My Call For Humanity” impressed and moved me. It gave me much to think about. Things I wish more people would think about.

 “I have no notions of a perfect society. I don’t know what that means. But I know we can do much better than what we’ve got.”

Television the drug of a nation – what’s on the BOX with Michael Green

Take a walk one day down Marine Parade, past Eastbourne Pier and the Chippy and look out to the waters edge, you may well see a Man working fervently on a painting.

It might not be a canvas that he’s painting, it might be an old PC, a car windscreen, a shop mannequin, a bit of drift wood, a crate, an old camera,a powder puff, or even a television set… Wherever he is painting he captures the angles and adjusts so that so looking straight on it still looks like (barring the content) a classic painting.

Perhaps you may stop , look down, you may start to read the back of his t-shirt and decide to go closer.

You may go down and look at what hes doing,  he may look up and then back to his work, you may ask a question, he may reply, you might not like the reply but you will still stand and watch and ask more questions. He may hand you a card or two, question you back or just tell you to fuck off.. you might be offended, you might be enlightened, either way, take the card go home and follow the lead he has given you….Its time to open your mind.

“The essence of capitalism is to turn nature into commodities and commodities into capital. The live green earth is transformed into dead gold bricks, with luxury items for the few and toxic slag heaps for the many. The glittering mansion overlooks a vast sprawl of shanty towns, wherein a desperate, demoralized humanity is kept in line with drugs, television, and armed force.” ― Michael Parenti, Against Empire

To use Televisions, and PC Monitors to raise awareness of the gross misconduct of monetised society is the nemesis of advertising, where no longer do we regard people as Sheep and TV the shepherd but rather to use the TV screen symbolically and convey a message of awakening and enlightenment.

Unlike any so called divine enlightenment, awareness of the nature of oppression provides no “Sinday” heavenly joy, at worst the hope is awareness will create resistance to the Corporate/State/Political/Financial machine, and at best a drive to support engage and be part of the change for a better future.

The Art, the images speak from themselves, take some time, read whats “ON THE BOX” . When Timothy Leary coined the phrase “Turn on, tune in, drop out” at the Human Be-In in 1966, seen ever since in the media as an all time counterculture-era statement about getting “high” and dropping out of society, he was actually referring to was  creating something of value something new, essentially “dropping in” to society.

The television, the corporations, the advertising media mogul that make money for there elitist empires and pyramid power companies have conditioned you through television, to drop out.

Television is the drug of the nation, and drugs make subversive people submissive. turn it off and get socially engaged in real change.

Its time to “drop in”…
