"The corporate value system in which making money
takes precedence over the welfare of human beings and the planet is not
sustainable. It is corrupt. It is immoral. It must change." - Laurence Overmire

"A true revolution of values will
soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our
past and present policies.
On the one hand we are called to play
the good Samaritan on life's roadside; but that will be only an initial act.
One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be
transformed so that
men and women
will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their
journey on life's
compassion is more
than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes
to see that an edifice which produces
beggars needs restructuring. A true revolution of values will soon look
uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous
indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the
West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa and South America, only to
take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say: "This
is not just."
It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of
Latin America and say: "This is not just."
The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others
and nothing to learn from them is not just.
A true revolution of values
will lay hands on the world order and say of war: "This way of settling
differences is not just."
This business of burning
human beings with napalm, of filling our
nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting
poisonous drugs of hate into veins of
people normally humane, of sending men home from
dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically
deranged, cannot be reconciled without wisdom, justice and compassion. A nation that continues year
after year to spend more money on military
endeavors than on programs
of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.
America, the richest and most
powerful nation on Earth, can well lead the way in
this revolution of values. There is nothing, except a tragic death wish, to
prevent us from reordering our priorities, so that the pursuit of peace will
take precedence over the pursuit of war.
There is nothing to keep us from
molding a recalcitrant status quo with bruised hands until we have fashioned it
into a brotherhood.
A genuine revolution of values means in the
final analysis that our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional.
Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to
mankind as a whole in order to preserve the
best in their individual societies. " -

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 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."

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.
