Quote for the Christmas Month of December:


The Christ-child stood at Mary's knee,
His hair was like a crown,
And all the flowers looked up at Him
And all the stars looked down.

3. ON A PERSONAL NOTE:


== == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == ==



Out Our Way:

We know from talking to many of you that this is your "don't miss" place in the Digest, so we endeavor to make it fun and informative for you every month. One good friend wrote about the August, 2004 Digest:
"Bobby and Del, your digest is terrific and I read the personal note section. I love the pictures — you 2 look wonderful. Glad to hear your Mom is better and on the mend." Take care, Betty.

First two weeks I was singing the PC Blues. My new upgrade had a defect in the hardware and I finally, with the advice of my computer friend, Ted Graham, decided to send it back for replacement. Luckily I had fixed my Laptop up for substitute duty. My desktop computer has come back and has stayed up solid for several weeks now. First time I've ever had bad hardware on an upgrade, but it's all fixed now. Speaking of Blues, we were invited to an evening with the four Blues Brothers at the Besh Steakhouse in Harrah's Casino downtown New Orleans. See photo above. Actually the Blues Brother on the right is our good friend, Evan Soulé, Jr., who invited us to celebrate his winning the Million Dollar Slot Machine Tournament in Atlantic City last month. Besh's is decorated with Cajun George Rodrique's paintings of the Blue Dog. Evan is holding a one-of-a-kind walking stick presented him by Harrah's to comemorate his championship -- which is appropriate since Evan is a one-of-a-kind guy. He has pledged his winnings to support his parents in their golden years.

As you all know by now we had a national election this month. We stayed up as late as possible, but went to bed without knowing the results. In the morning, I put the news outlets on the five screens in our Screening Room, and after spending an hour looking at news, I still wasn't sure what was going on. I went outside, picked up my New Orleans Times-Picayune newspaper, and it told me in five minutes what I couldn’t find out from watching all the cable news media covering the election results. One graphic of the results was particularly telling and I have included it below in the Commentary Section.

My daughter Maureen is the new Dean of Studies at John Quincy Adams Middle School in Metairie and I paid her a visit at work one week. She gets parents coming in all the time to talk to the Disciplinarian, as she is also called, but this parent only wanted to talk to his daughter. She showed me the new trumpet that her son, Gabriel, is playing in the school band. I wish I had been able to start the trumpet in the sixth grade myself. I didn't start until the middle of the ninth grade when my mom had a chance to buy an old trumpet from the lady across the street for $10. My late start led to my always lagging behind the other trumpet players who had been playing forever. I was always playing second and third trumpet. Hopefully my grandson Gabriel will blow a trumpet in a manner befitting his given name.

Del and I went to an interesting lecture by Jungian Analyst Christopher Hawke from England. He led us through case studies of individuation using the medium of movies. He shared with us "American Beauty" and several other movies. I shared with him one of my favorite recent movies, "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". It was a delight to talk to him after the lecture because he watches movies the way Del and I like to watch movies.

For Thanksgiving Day, we had all four of Del's children with spouses and their children coming to dinner, plus her mom, Doris, who recovered quickly from her latest minor back operation. We set the table for 21 and almost filled all the seats. I don't recall how I managed to cook for Thanksgiving in the years I was working full-time, because this year I spent all day Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday cooking the side dishes, so that Thursday morning all we had to do was warm everything up while the turkey baked in the oven. We had plenty food for all and lots of delicious leftovers. Here's a photo below of Del with her daughter, Kim, standing in the front of the table they had just finished setting. Plus photos of our offspring and their offspring scattered around the Digest this month.

Our Thanksgiving Day was followed by another event we gave thanks for: LSU whipped its rival Arkansas in Little Rock. It was the first time in 17 years anyone had beaten Arkansas there. The game was not as close as the 43-14 score might otherwise indicate. In a re-building year Coach Nick Saban showed us a team that grew every game and finished on a high note, just as our National Championship team did last year. One bowl game to go, so Go Tigers!

For you racing fans, we had the first annual Thanksgiving Wheelchair Race between pre-teen Kirt and forty-something Chris from Atlanta. The youngster took the first race, and I'm sorry I found out about it after the race was already over and don't have any photo record of the event. Kirt was tickled pink and Chris was heard mumbling something about getting his wheelchair cleaned up and oiled for next year.

Time for me to go search for the large red Bocce ball that was tossed into the garden and misplaced. Till next month when we meet again in these pages, God willing, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year --- Bobby.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Movies we watched this past month:

Notes about our movies: Many of the movies we watch are foreign movies with subtitles. After years of watching movies in foreign languages, Arabic, French, Swedish, German, British English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and many other languages, sometimes two or three languages in the same movie, the subtitles have disappeared for us. If the movie is dubbed in English we go for the subtitles instead because we enjoy the live action and sounds of the real voices so much more than the dubbed. If you wonder where we get all these foreign movies from, the answer is simple: NetFlix. For a fixed price a month they mail us DVD movies from our on-line Queue, we watch them, pop them into a pre-paid mailer, and the postman effectively replaces all our gas-consuming and time-consuming trips to Blockbuster. To sign up for NetFlix, simply go to http://www.netflix.com/ and start adding all your requests for movies into your personal queue. If you've seen some in these movie blurbs, simply copy the name, click open your queue, and paste the name in the Search box on NetFlix and Select Add. Buy some popcorn and you're ready to Go to the Movies, 21st Century Style. You get to see your movies as the Director created them — NOT-edited for TV, in full-screen width, your own choice of subtitles, and all of the original dialogue.
P. S. Look for HD/DVD format movies which are now available from NetFlix.
Hits (Watch as soon as you can. A Don't Miss Hit is one you might otherwise ignore.):
“Simply Irresistible” (1999) describes this movie, its leading actress, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and the food that she as Amanda the Chef cooks up. Do NOT watch this movie on an empty stomach! The sumptuous arrays of delicious foods will drive you crazy, as it does everyone who eats it. Not mad crazy, just the kind of crazy that really good tasting food creates: a trance of delight, a rapture of the moment, in which time stands still and you can see forever.
“Bend It Like Beckham” (2002) or “My Sister’s Big Fat Hindu Wedding” with a real soccer of a sub-plot. Will Jess break the ethnic barrier that her Hindu father was unable to in British sports? Will Jess show up for her sister’s big wedding that Jess caused to be almost canceled? Will she play in the soccer finals and get a scholarship to Santa Clara across the big pond? If she gets the scholarship will she get permission from her parents to go? In an insular Indian community near Heathrow Airport which values marriage for a young girl as the only worthy goal, how can a soccer star survive in such a culture unless she learns to “bend it like Beckham”?
“Cinema Paradiso” Director’s Cut (1990) with 30 or so additional minutes that were cut like the scenes of kissing within the movie were cut by the Catholic priest who got to watch them and then shield his parishioners from them. The movie centers on the kid who snuck up into the projector room to watch the kissing hit the floor as the curmudgeon, Alfredo, who operated the projector, clipped out the offending scenes when the priest rang his little bell as a signal. In the expanded version, the love story with Elena is wrapped up at the end of the movie. Alfredo kept her message to himself when she came to keep her date at the Cinema with Salvatore and Alfredo was sitting in for him. A truly great film made better by leaving in all of the stuff that went to the cutting room floor when the high-priest at the studio made the final cut.
“The Alamo” (2004) — an excellent remake of the classic story, but this time with real, believable stories for the nascent 21 st Century. Davy Crockett can be seen to be an example of the "legend making the man" when he admits that he only came to wear the coonskin cap after an actor portraying him in a stage play made the coonskin hat identified with him. The fragility and inexperience of Bill Travis as he led the forces in the Alamo into battle was well portrayed. Sam Houston looked like an indecisive loser and coward until the decisive battle when he routed Santa Ana’s troops. When urged by his men to hang the defeated Generalissimo, he said, “You want blood, but I want Texas.” For sparing his life, Houston got Santa Ana to sign over Texas to him. But for that bargain, Texans might all be speaking Spanish today, and Mexicans might be swimming across the Sabine River into Louisiana to reach freedom and prosperity in the USA.
“Elizabeth” (1998) with Cate Blanchett as the Virgin Queen. In a country full of intrigue, a young woman takes over the throne. She is no virgin when we first see her carousing in bed with Robert Dudley, but it becomes clear to her that it will take a virgin to rule this country debauched by inflamed passions for power, greed, and sharing her bed. The white make-up we see her in during the final scenes replicates the effect of the statue of the Blessed Virgin which inspired her. No one would ever be close to her again and the white makeup would hide even the hint of a blush of passion. She went on to rule the country for 40 years and brought it to a prosperity that none of her advisors could have even envisioned as they gave the young queen advice which she promptly ignored. No one but Cate Blanchett with her vulnerability and strength of character could have brought Elizabeth to life so vividly and believably.
“Hidalgo” (2004) a cowboy movie set in Saudi Arabia in which a long distance rider enters a 3,000 mile race across the desert on a mustang he befriended in the American West. The horse seemed to be more of his companion than his horse. When he is late getting up, the horse goes to the starting line and waits for him. The horse, in the leading role, has some of the best lines --- which show up in the subtitles as “horse nickers”. Turn subtitles on as there is a lot of Arabic speaking. Great portrayal of an Arabian Sheik by Omar Sharif. Viggo Mortensen is excellent in his supporting role as the cowboy.
“The French Lieutenant’s Woman” (1981) in which a love affair takes places on-screen and off-screen between Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep. One wonders what was happening in those two’s lives off-off-screen in real life during the making of the movie. At one point we hear the actors say to one another, “The writers haven’t decided whether to go with the happy ending or not.” This gives us a clue to denouement of the two parallel movie plots — one has a happy ending (the two sail off into the sunset) and one does not (the two separate). Now watch it and find out which was which.
“The Ladykillers” (2004) was a scream! The Coen brothers have done it to us again. Tom Hanks as the suave pedant with his pearly sesquipedalian orotundity led a band of borderline brothers into the root cellar of an elderly black woman to tunnel into the money vault of a gambling boat. The humor in this movie compared to Woody Allen’s “Small-time Crooks” would be like comparing the humor of Richard Pryor to Jack Benny. Excuse me, I have a large bag of garbage to toss over a nearby bridge.

Misses (Avoid At All Costs): We attempted to watch these this month, but didn't make it all the way through on most of them. Awhile back when three AAAC horrors hit us in one night, I decided to add a sub-category to "Avoid at All Costs", namely, A DVD STOMPER. These are movies so bad, you don't want anyone else to get stuck watching them, so you want to stomp on the disks. That way, if everyone else who gets burnt by the movie does the same, soon no copies of the awful movie will be extant and the world will be better off.

“Pieces of April” (2003) Warning: Do not watch this movie if you’re fixing Thanksgiving dinner within a week, or if you have a weak stomach, or are going to your daughter’s place for her first Thanksgiving dinner since moving out. Better yet: don’t watch it in any year which includes a Thanksgiving Day.
“The Clearing” (2004) a kidnap-ransom movie with a twist: it’s dumb and boring. If you’re up for 91 minutes of slow torture, this one’s right down your alley.
“Ash Wednesday” (2002) a completely stupid movie which was a waste of Elijah Wood’s and Ed Burn’s talents and my time. About some Irish thugs and revenge. No redeeming qualities.
“Goin’ South” (1978) went. Went South, that is, like in went bad, which is a leftover idiot-matic phrase still prevalent among damn Yankees. Came out the same year we got married, but Del said our marriage fared much better than the movie. Okay if you want to watch a young John Belushi, Jack Nicholas, Christopher Lloyd, Mary Steenbergen, and Danny Devito.
“Tiptoes” (2003) in which the only redeeming grace was watching Gary Oldham play a dwarf. A movie in which tall Matthew McConaughey is born of dwarf parents and has a twin, Gary Oldham, who is a dwarf. Wrap your mind around that. When tall guy’s girl friend gets pregnant unexpectedly, she wants the baby, but tall hasn’t shared his dark secret with her. Can this brave girl friend survive her trip into Munchkin Land? Can she bring her baby into this little people world? Story goes nowhere, ends in a thud.

Your call on these — your taste in movies may differ, but I liked them:

“Last Orders” (2002) plays off the ambiguity of the last call for pints at the local pub where four war buddies drink and carouse, and Jack’s dying wishes to have his ashes scattered off the end of the Margate pier into the sea. The three buddies and the son move bleakly toward the pier with Jack’s ashes while we get to live in the vivid memories of Jack’s three buddies, his widow, and son.
“Dawg” (2002) — what can you saw about Dawg (Dennis Leary) after you say his license plate is “Go Dawg” and his High School field of play was the football team’s cheerleaders, one at a time, and at 40, he still hasn’t grown up, collecting lays like a philandering philatist. Interesting romp through his past, present, and future, er, well, romps would be more like it.
“Star Trek: Voyager” (1998)In this episode, Tom Paris breaks the Warp 10 barrier and goes transwarp for the first time in Science Fiction history. This results in changes to his body that are gruesome. Tom finally breaks free of the Voyager in the shuttle and takes Captain Janeway with him on an adventure whose ending has Chakotay mumbling to himself, “How am I going to enter this into the ship’s log?”
“Nick of Time” (1995) with the most absurd plot — a stranger played by Johnny Depp has his five-year-old girl abducted by Christopher Walken who heads a security detail for the governor (Marsha Mason) intent on killing her, and Depp is to be the killer or his daughter dies. The chances of this working is so remote that one suspects something else must be going on. The movie only gets interesting as it becomes clear that Depp has been chosen as the patsy and he only has to be at the assassination scene for the plot to work. Only the thinnest recommendation for this mostly infuriatingly stupid movie.
“Innocence” (2000) about Clair who’s been married for 43 years and comfortable with a man who’s so comfortable with her he’s mostly ignored her. She gets contacted by a man she knew briefly as 20-yr-olds and soon their love re-blooms and individuation raises its beautiful head in herself and her too-comfortable husband.
“Xanadu” (1980) — one of Gene Kelly’s last dancing roles as a clarinet player who opens a roller disco on Sunset Blvd and provides songs for Olivia Newton-John to sing. At our son Stoney's behest we took him to the World Premier of this movie at the famous Mann’s Chinese Theatre (with the concrete footprints of stars) in Hollywood, and a few minutes after the movie was over, we drove past the art deco architecture which provided the exterior shots for the roller disco of the movie. Great songs, so take your bathroom breaks during the sappy dialogue and acting.

4. CAJUN STORY:
== == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == ==

Boudreaux's Wife Marie makes groceries at the Breaux Bridge General Store. One day in late November, she goes to check out her groceries with Theophile behind the counter, who is also the U.S. Postmaster for the small Cajun town in Southwestern Louisiana.

After her grocery total is rung up, she asks Theophile, "Can I bought me 50 of dem pretty stamps with de Christmas picture of Peter, Paul, and Mary on dem?”

“Mais, oui, Marie,” Theophile replies. “What denomination do you want?”

“Bon Dieu!” Marie exclaimed. “Has it come to dis? I can't stood dat, me! Okay, if dat's de way it's gotta be, gimme 23 Catholics, 9 Assembly of Gods, 13 Baptists, and 7 Presbyterians.”

I use about a fourth of a bunch of cilantro for one bowl of this guacamole.I buy a bunch of cilantro, chop it finely, divide into four parts and place each part in a small snack bag which all go into one quart size freezer Ziplock bag. To fix this quacamole, I use one small bag, and re-chop it while it’s frozen. Chop yellow onions and tomato (peeling on) finely, add to bowl with cilantro. Chop the jalapeno peppers finely. I keep a small jar of sliced jalapenos in the fridge at all times.

Avocado Preparation

Slice avocado in half, remove pit, then either peel the skin away or scoop flesh out of the skin with a large spoon. Place avocado flesh in a separate bowl. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over avocado in bowl. Mash the avocado with a potato masher till mostly smooth.

Serving Suggestion
Add Avocados to the Chopped Veggies bowl and mix well. Season to taste with Sea Salt and Malabar Black Pepper. Cover bowl with Saran Wrap and Refrigerate for an hour or so for best flavor. Olé!

Other options

To save in refrigerator before serving or overnight: Push wrap air-tight against the guacamole to prevent browning.

Will keep up your strength through all the early bowl games so you can get out and pick up a Christmas tree for the house. Just add football and Tostitos Crispy Round chips!

6. POETRY by BOBBY from Rainbows & Shadows:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Chances Are

There are books that give scientific odds
       on anything you ever
       hoped or feared
       might happen to you,

Everything being equal.

But science has never proven
       that everything is equal -
       it has merely assumed
       that everything is equal.

However, science has convinced enough Western minds
       that this is so, that,
       believing this is so,
       it has become so.

Thus providing a convincing demonstration
that reality follows belief.

Demonstrating therefore that the odds of any of those things
       happening to you are not the same as
       them happening to anyone else,
       but rather depend on your belief
       in the possibility of them happening to you.

Odds are individual, not global,
       as any gambler will assure you.

7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for December:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: An Outline of Occult Science, Chapter 5 by Rudolf Steiner

This review covers Chapter 5 Initiation which takes us on a journey to far times and places that we have been given glimmers of in the first four chapters of this book. To paraphrase St. Paul, "then we saw through a dark glassly, now we see face to face."

A short excerpt from the beginning of the review:

Where do we go from here? We have been shown a means of understanding the nature of humankind. We have been shown a means of understanding the nature of the cosmos in which we exist. Now our guide, Rudolf Steiner, will systematically show us the means for understanding our means of understanding these amazing things. In short, he will show us that Imaginations alone would appear to us as writing does to a pre-literate savage, meaningless. Only with the addition of Inspirations can these Imaginations be formed into meaningful understanding of the spiritual beings these Imaginations reveal to us. And only with the addition of Intuition can we understand the inner nature of these beings themselves. But, let us start at the beginning, as Dorothy had to when she entered Oz. She was dazzled by spectacular sights and displays. Once she was able to pull back the curtain (Imagination), she could see the Wizard pulling the levers. Then she was able see that those spectacular displays were related to the movement of his levers (Inspiration), and only later was she able to understand what motivated the Wizard to do what he did (Intuition). Dorothy's trek into initiation was every bit as tortuous and fraught with horrors and dangers as the one each of us will take eventually as we proceed into our cognition of the Oz in which we find ourselves. And we complete our trip to the far reaches of Oz, we will find ourselves back home where we started. The A—N section of our lives will resemble what we found in the O—Z section of our filing cabinet called LIFE and the microcosm of Kansas will resemble the macrocosm of OZ. That is the adventure we come to in these final four chapters of Steiner tales of humankind's initiation into higher worlds — its visit to the Land of Oz and back while still in the flesh.

2.) ARJ2: GUEST ESSAY: Michaelmas, A Talk Given to Briar Hill Primary Steiner School by Kristina Kaine

Rev. Kristina Kaine gave this talk to a Steiner School (what is called "Waldorf School in the USA) called Briar Hill Primary School in Australia.

This essay is an excellent introduction to Michaelmas, one of the neglected cardinal or hinge points of the year. Michaelmas opens the gate to Fall for us in the Northern Hemisphere, just as Christmas opens the gate to Winter, Easter to Spring, and St. John's Tide to Summer. It is a time for us to bring into our awareness the deeds of the Archangel Mi-cha-el. Mi-cha-el is the favored pronunciation because when we pronounce it that way, we acknowledge him as Micha-El or Micha of God, where El represents "of God" in all the Archangels names, such as Gabriel, Oriphiel, Samael, and Raphael, among others. It behooves us to avoid eliding the reference to "of God" by our choppy two-syllable rendering of "my-kull", up until now. We do best to replace it in our daily speech with the more rhythmic and beautiful "mee-kah-ahl" (regardless of how it is spelled) from now on.

In the usual image of the Archangel Mi-cha-el, we see a youth in armor wielding sword while standing upon a writhing dragon. He has the dragon under the power of his foot and is about to slay the dragon with his sword. The dragon represents the forces of non-thinking or darkness, and Mi-cha-el represents the forces of light. Someone once wrote about this image, that the palpable writhing of the dragon indicates that it is under Mi-cha-el's control and shows that we are safe because Mi-cha-el is on duty.

Each year on Michaelmas, in places around the world (more so than in the USA), school children re-enact the slaying of the dragon. They get under a paper mache dragon and dance around the one chosen to be Mi-cha-el until finally with a play sword Mi-cha-el slays the dragon, and all the children have tea and cookies. A similar ritual is enacted in our skies every Fall when the meteorite showers of the Leonids and Perseids rain down meteoric iron upon Earth which strengthens the Michaelic forces of the Earth.

I wish to thank the Reverend Kristina Kaine for giving us persmission to publish this fine essay on Good Mountain Press in A Reader's Journal. Through her work, many more will be brought to understand why the Archangel Mi-cha-el is very important in bringing freedom and light to our world during this time.

3.) ART: Learning How to Learn — Psychology and Spirituality in the Sufi Way by Idries Shah

My A Reader's Treasury contains reviews I've written recently of books I read about 20 to 30 years ago. These reviews are special because they typically include most the things I thought important to me at the time when I read them. As I wrote this latest review of "Learning How to Learn", the thought occurred to me that the things I thought were important in this book back then are things that I have since assimilated into the who-I-am today. These reviews provide a fourth dimensional mirror of me --- the "me" I was some 25 years ago. That "me" was reading and studying material selected by the process of "remembering the future" in order to create the "me" I am today as I type these words. As one external sign which confirms my insight, my wife and partner of thirty years, Del, scribbled a note at one point in this review, "Just like you!"

Hope you enjoy the review and while reading it remember a future you who will find these insights becoming a part of you. If the review by itself doesn't do it for you, then locate a copy of the book itself.

I hear often from my Good Readers that they have bought books after reading my book reviews. Keep reading, folks! As I like to remind you, to obtain more information on what's in these books, buy and read the books — for less information, read the reviews.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

In this section I like to comment on events in the world, in my life, and in my readings which have come up during the month. These are things I might have shared with you in person, if we had had the opportunity to coverse during the month. If we did, then you may recognize my words. If I say some things here which upset you, rest assured that you may skip over these for the very reason that I would likely have not brought up the subject to spoil our time together in person.

1. Coercion Identified as the Source of Oppression

From: The Federalist Patriot
Founders' Quote Daily of November 17, 2004:
"Wherever the real power in a Government lies, there is the danger of oppression." --James Madison

James Madison was thinking about “government” in the only way that "governments" existed in his time, and for that matter, in our time, up until now. The so-called "governments" exist today with a “real power” that lies in coercion, and that is what leads us inexorably to “the danger of oppression.”

What if a government existed in which its real power were to lie in each individual to make choices which were voluntarily limited to choices which affected only derivatives of their own life? Such a real power would eliminate the danger of oppression. Oppression necessarily presupposes actions which affect other people’s lives or the derivatives thereof.

From my Cassel’s Concise Dictionary: Oppress v.t. 1 to tyrannize over, to keep subservient. 2. To inflict hardships, cruelties, or exactions upon, to govern cruelly or unjustly

What is meant by “derivatives of one’s life”? It means one’s thoughts and ideas, and it means everything one acquires in one’s lifetime. This way of looking at one’s life and derivatives thereof was formulated by Dr. Andrew Joseph Galambos in his operational definition of “property”, which established the basis for his operational definition of freedom. An operational definition, simply put, is one which specifies operations you can perform to determine if some thing or situation fits the definition. His definition of property is this: “Property is a person’s life and all non-procreative derivatives thereof.” (Offspring are excluded as property.)

Property is a loaded word for many people exactly because of the coercive abuses to which property has historically been subjected. It was those abuses stemming from coercion which led James Madison to warn about the oppression that can arise from the government of his time. There is no need to warn about the possibility of oppression from coercive governments today, as it is the only form of government extant, and every one should know of the possibility from personal exposure to such so-called governments. It is the only way in which “government” can be conceived to operate, up until now. Up until Dr. Galambos and his landmark lectures on Volitional Science. It was these lectures which established the basis for true government in which the “real power” is the absence of coercion, and, as such, creates the possibility for a government which cannot, by definition, result in oppression.

One would think that everyone who claims to be against oppression would open their arms to such a concept, and one would be underestimating the forces of coercion which pervade society’s thoughts and mores. One can hear the rabble-rousers and the ignorant chant: “It’s never been done.” “It can’t be done.” “We already have the best government possible.” “Who would control it?” “It would be subject to all kinds of abuses.” “It sounds like Utopia.” “The people would never buy it.” And so on.

In his introductory course on Volitional Science, V50T, Dr. Galambos answers all the questions and lays out the basis for a non-coercive government. If you have even a glimmer that this might be possible, read his new book which is a complete transcript of the lecture course which was given around the country and world to about 50,000 people by my estimate, and decide for yourself. For an introduction to the book, read my review of it here: Sic Itur Ad Astra. When I drew the cartoon above, no such book existed. Today it can be obtained for about one-fifth of the cost of the course I took in 1982 from any large on-line bookseller. If you agree that coercion is clearly the source of oppression, then it should be clear to you that the removal of coercion will lead to the removal of oppression. And that removal will come about when one begins to understand this other operational definition promulgated by Dr. Galambos:

"Freedom is the societal condition which exists when everyone has 100% control over all non-procreative derivatives of their own life."

If, instead, you lose faith that freedom from coercion will ever be built, I remind you that what is possible for the flights of human thought often takes a long time to reach those who teach in the highest thinking institutions in our country. No single event epitomizes that situation so well as the words of the famous academician, Professor Newcomb, who swore, "Man will never achieve heavier-than-air flight," some days after the Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur, had already accomplished that very deed! Look carefully around you and you may begin to find that some people are already achieving the flight of freedom that the highest academics today will swear is impossible.

2. Lame Duck Congress, not President

Last night while watching the post-election folderol, I heard this bit by ABC Political Analyst, Mark Helprin, interviewed on CNN, I think it was, “Bush will be a lame duck president.” The tone of his remarks was that President Bush will have trouble for the next several months before the inauguration. The interviewer accepted his remarks and agreed with his comments. Something struck me as strange — a lame duck office-holder is one who holds office for a period of time after being voted out of office. My Webster’s agreed with my initial thought. This was an underhanded, even if unconscious, slap at the sitting president, a slap which the interviewer and the channel doing the broadcast were in cahoots with. ( Note: I have since seen references in the newspaper to “Bush's Lame Duck Term” which is a far s t r e t c h of the term “lame duck” to extend it to an entire elected term one has just won rather than simply the unexpired term before one leaves office after losing an election.)

Now, if Helprin had talked about the Minority Leader Tom Daschle as a “lame duck”, he would have been right on, in all definitions of lame duck, including, “one who falls behind in achievement.” The lame duck Congress has blocked Bush’s legislation and judicial appointments with an unprecedented use of cloture to overturn effectively the Constitutional guarantee of a majority vote to pass legislation in the Senate and to give consent to appointments by the president. With the new Congress the Senate would be wise to overturn the cloture law itself. Whatever reasons exists for its original creation, those reasons have been trumped by the overuse of the tool in a way never allowed nor intended at the time of its enactment. The sun is setting on cloture and will be followed by a return to majority rule in the Senate and the country will have its Constitution back, for better or worse, for freedom or oppression.

3. The Great Heart-Land of America

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's chart below shows the vote by counties in the USA. The heart-color red symbolizes the counties where our incumbent president won the vote. The other color represents where the blue-bloods of our country voted against him. One can see directly where the majority votes came from -- the heart vs the head. One cane see the large cities are blue with their urban culture, and one can pick out that the isolated small areas of blue mark the college towns where our young adults have their heads deeply steeped in liberal ideology. One might say theology as it requires faith to hold such principles absent demonstrations of their efficacy. I recall I letter I wrote as a liberal young adult of 24 to Senator Allen Ellender. I don't remember the contents of my liberal-slanted letter, but I clearly remember the reply I got back, "Wait 30 years, and see if you still hold the beliefs." Sen. Ellender was old enough and wise enough to perceive that I had introjected some liberal theology and that it could not be argued away. It could only be washed away by living one's life --- given enough time it would eventually fade away as a bad dream does in light of the realities of the day. Sufis say that counterfeit gold exists only because true gold exists. In our youth we can be fooled into accepting the counterfeit gold, but with age and wisdom, we insist on the true gold. By the time those thirty years had passed in my life, Senator Ellender was dead, but his words of true gold live on in me.

If one wonders where the adjective "blue-blooded" comes from, a little story will help explain it. The story comes from Rudolf Steiner and sounds like one of Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story" bits.

In the 19th Century, a man in Heilbronn, Germany, studied and qualified as a doctor. His talents unappreciated by the university or the people of the city, he finally took the only job available, a ship's doctor, and shipped out to the tropics of the Far East. During the rough journey with a ship full of sea-sick people, he was kept very busy bloodletting his patients to alleviate the sea-sickness, the treatment of choice in his time.

[page 107] People have two kinds of blood vessels. When one kind is opened, the blood that splashes out is reddish in colour. Another kind of blood vessel runs right alongside the first kind. If this is opened, the blood is bluish; bluish blood will come out. Ordinarily, when you bleed someone, you do not let the red blood flow out. The body needs this blood. You let the bluish blood flow out. Physicians know this very well. They also know where the blue blood vessels are and do not open the red ones.
[Quote from: http://www.doyletics.com/arj/mammoths.htm.]

But our good doctor on the ship couldn't find a blue blood vessel on any member of the passenger or crew. Every vessel he opened, sure as he was this was a blue blood vessel (a vein), came out a pale red instead of bluish. He finally figured out that in the tropics blue blood must turn red. He had discovered that humans need less food to heat their bodies in the tropics than they did in Germany and the excess heat from their food went into keeping their otherwise blue blood a pale red. Scientists of his time knew that we get our energy to perform work from our food, but Mayer showed them that our body heat also comes from our food, something that was hitherto unknown. This man, who was thought to be "not very gifted" by his university and town, had made a momentous discovery. Julius Robert von Mayer did some experiments and wrote a paper which led to the Law of Conservation of Energy which every scientist memorizes and learns to use, to this day.

My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.
