Life was created in the
valleys. It blew up onto the hills on the old terrors, the old lusts, the old
despairs. That's why you must walk up the hills so you can ride down.
We cannot choose freedom established on a hierarchy of degrees of
freedom, on a caste system of equality
like military rank. We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because
we practice it.
You can't help that.

"Our tragedy today is a general and universal
physical fear so long sustained by now that we can even bear it. There are no
longer problems of the spirit. There is only the question: When will I be blown
up? Because of this, the young man or woman writing today has
the problems of the human heart in
conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is
worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. He must learn them again.
He must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid: and,
teaching himself that, forget it forever, leaving no room in his workshop for
anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the universal truths
lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed compassion and honor and pity
and pride and compassion and sacrifice. Until he does so, he labors under a
curse. He writes not of compassion but of lust, of defeats in which nobody loses
anything of value, of victories without hope and, worst of all, without pity or
compassion. His griefs grieve on no universal bones, leaving no scars. He
writes not of the heart but of the glands."
Speech after receiving the
Nobel Prize for Literature (10 December 1950).
- William Faulkner, American author
William Faulkner wrote works of psychological drama and
emotional depth. William Faulkner was
influenced by and drew
upon the history of his family and the region of northern Mississippi.

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
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 economic system,
corporate 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.

the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power
rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media
by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population
through prior corporate 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

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.
