"The inability of the Western world 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." - Times of London, August 7, 1920
sometimes charge me with adoring tribalism. They say to me in effect, "If
you adore 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

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
forged 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 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 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.
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 corporate 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.
