"I contend that most of the mental illnesses that we are seeing in today’s America
are reactive to the depraved nature of those who seek power over others." - Dave Hodges


Chinese charater for family

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your Love but not your Thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their Souls,
For their Souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, not even in your Dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For Life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
Khalil Gibran

On heritage and inheritance


"Scholars long have observed that although the family unit is the "nucleus of civilization,"
when family interests are held to be more important than those of the individual,
it can have a dampening effect on market economies." - Gregory Rodriquez

would not want to dampen the engine of progress now, would we ?

it was a year of living dangerously

a clan

a tribe

a race

husband, wife

cousin, uncle, aunt

a group of like things; a class

father, mother, son, daughter, sister, brother

A group of individuals sharing common ancestry.

A vertical column in the periodic table of elements.

A group of elements with similar chemical properties

A locally independent organized crime unit, as the Cosa Nostra.

Those who descend from one common progenitor; a tribe, clan, or race.

A group of individuals derived from a common stock: a family of human beings.

A taxonomic category of related organisms ranking below an order and above a genus.

A set of functions or surfaces that can be generated by varying the parameters of a general equation.

A group of languages descended from the same parent language, such as the Indo-European language family.

A group comprising a husband and wife and their dependent children, constituting the fundamental building block in the organization of ancient and modern society and cultures.

A group of organisms, either animal or vegetable, related by certain points of resemblance in structure or development, more comprehensive than a genus, because it is usually based on fewer or less pronounced points of likeness. In zoology a family is less comprehesive than an order; in botany it is often considered the same thing as an order.

American aristocracy's, supported by government and corporate institutions, overall plan of social control requires the dissolution of the family. By appealing to the ego of youth malevolent institutions divide and conquer the home and hearth of family life.

real prosperity

A rich man asked Sengai to write something for the continued prosperity of his family so that it might be treasured from generation to generation.

Sengai obtained a large sheet of paper and wrote: "Father dies, son dies, grandson dies."

The rich man became angry.

"I asked you to write something for the happiness of my family! Why do you make such a joke of this?"

"No joke is intended," explained Sengai. "If before you yourself die your son should die, this would grieve you greatly. If your grandson should pass away before your son, both of you would be broken-hearted. If your family, generation after generation, passes away in the order I have named, it will be the natural course of life.

I call this real prosperity."



"People will sometimes charge me with just being in love with tribalism. They say to me in effect, "If you love it so much, why don't you just go do it and leave the rest of us alone?" Those who understand me in this way totally misunderstand what I'm saying. The tribal lifestyle isn't precious because it's beautiful or lovable or because it's "close to nature." It isn't even precious because it's "the natural way for people to live." To me, this is gibberish. The tribal life is precious because it is tested out. For 3,000,000 years it worked for people. It worked for people the way nests work for birds, the way webs work for spiders, the way burrows work for moles. That doesn't make it lovable, it makes it viable." - David Sheen

In Afghanistan and Iraq, the United States is fighting tribalism as much as Islamic fundamentalism.

Wahhabi teachings calling for jihad against infidels, fatwas from clerics justifying the murder of non-combatants and ultimatums from Sunni insurgents who behead captives all are expressions of extreme tribalism more than Islam. (Osama Bin Laden and the foot soldiers of 9-11 subscribe to Saudi Wahhabi tribalism.)

Many religions have their deepest roots in tribal societies.

The major monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam arose during tense tribal times in the Middle East.

Each religion's oldest texts contain passages that, true to traditional tribal ethics, advocate reciprocal altruism toward fellow kin and allow for terrible retribution against tribes deemed guilty of insult or injury.

Religion layered onto tribalism, and vice versa, deeply conditions a tribe's thinking and behavior.

A tribe may regard a deity as the ultimate ancestor of its identity.

The tribes mythical narrative instructs tribal members of social parameters.

Tribal life can foster a vibrant sense of social solidarity.

Tribal life fills a humans with pride and self-respect.

Tribal life motivates families to protect, welcome and care for each other.

This kinship creates trust and loyalty in which one knows and must uphold one's rights, duties and obligations.

Many peoples around the world prefer the tribal way of life, most notably in the Middle East and South Asia.

Even modern societies that lack well-defined tribes and clans still have tribe like sensibilities at their core that are variously expressed in nationalism, cultural festivities, civic interest groups, sports and fan clubs.

Tribes and clans are terribly sensitive to boundaries and barriers, about who is a tribal member and who isn't.

As such, a tribe can be a realm of virtue in which reciprocal altruism rules kin relations.

In tribal logic this virtuous behavior may be deemed inapproriate to extend to outsiders.

The more a religion's adherents demonize others, revel in codes of revenge for alleged wrongs and crave territorial and spiritual conquests, all the while claiming to act on behalf of their deity, the more their religious orientation is utterly tribal and prone to rationalizing violence of the darkest category.

All religious hatred whether Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu or other - speaks the language of tribe and clan.

And in true tribal fashion, that language is loaded with sensitivities about respect, honor and dignity.

An insult or injury to any of these is sensed by all tribal members,
and the only honorable recourse is full compensation or total revenge.

This is an essential ethic of tribes and clans, no matter their religion.

Americans comfort themselves with the thought that no other nation will be able to match our power for decades.

But from ancient times to the present, globally expanding great powers often encounter tribes or clans that fiercely resist them, sometimes with dire consequences, as happened to the Roman Empire.

The more tribal or clannish the society, the more resistant it will be to change.

-adapted from David Ronfeldt, political scientist

"The Western world's inability to understand the tribal and religious underpirinings of Iraq and the rest of the Arab world is of long standing. The proof is in the media coverage: "How much longer are valuable lives to be sacrificed in the vain endeavor to impose upon the Arab population an elaborate and expensive administration they never asked for and do not want." That was in a story in the Times of London - dated Aug. 7,1920." - Marty Cooper

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
