Kymatica

                                                                   Kymatica

Brothers Benjamin and Daniel Stewart have made a brilliant film with shining moments about the nature of consciousness. In one hour and twenty-four minutes they ambitiously cover the range of the electro-magnetic properties of the ‘organism’ Earth, how this gives rise to biological form and function, the meaning of myth and religion as symbolic outer stories that enable our conception of the True Self and the False Ego, and how the global drama of terror and control is a collective expression of our inner divisions.
 
As they describe “Fear”, calling it the Parasite (minute 35), “this parasite called our Ego requires a continuous flow of sustenance to survive….a [biological] parasite will release chemicals that cause the host to crave the sustenance that the parasite needs to survive. As long as the host is unaware, it will keep feeding the parasite and starving itself…”
 
(minute 52) “During the 1990s, three Nobel laureates in medicine advanced research that revealed the primary function of DNA lies not in protein synthesis, as was widely believed for the past century, but in electromagnetic energy reception and transmission”…
 
“The heart and brain maintain a continuous two-way dialogue, each influencing the other’s functioning. Although it is not well known, the heart sends far more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart, and the signals the heart sends to the brain can influence perception, emotional processing, and higher cognitive functions. The heart also generates the strongest rhythmic electromagnetic field in the body and this can actually be measured in the brainwaves of people around us” –HeartMath Institute
 
(mintute 1hr:19:10) “In this conscious living universe, there are no LAWs of nature, just habits. There is nothing external to this universe to force a Law upon it. The illusion of a fixed Law of nature is only the result of there being no need for that habit to be broken. When habits need to be broken to ensure the survival of the organism, we see this event in nature and call it Evolution. The collective mind shapes our evolution. A great example of this is the experiment done by John Kairns [sic?] in 1988. His team put lactose-intolerant cells in an environment with only lactose for food. Under a Law of nature every one of these lactose-intolerant cells would have died, but surprisingly they all survived. Every one of them understood the problem they were facing and replaced a defective lactase enzyme with a functioning one to utilize lactose for food. If a cell has the ability to decide how and when to evolve because it’s facing extinction, then anything can.”
 
[Dr. Bruce Lipton, cellular biologist]–“The existing belief is that the human body is a biochemical machine controlled by genes and therefore the behavior, emotions, and character of our biology, our health and lives, are controlled by genes –which we don’t control! So, this is what we taught people, “You’re a victim; genes control your life; you didn’t pick them and you can’t change them; the genes you end up with program what’s going to happen.” But experiments on stem cells which I started in 1967 –I’d isolate one stem cell and put it in a Petri dish and then it would divide every ten hours –so I took all of the cells and split them up in 3 Petri dishes. Then, I changed the growth medium –the constituents of the environment– in each of the three dishes. In one dish the cells formed bone. In the second dish they formed muscle and in the third dish they formed fat cells. What controlled the fate of a cell? The first thing you have to say is “wait, they were all genetically identical when they were put in the dish, so obviously the genes didn’t control it because they all had the same genes!” What was different was the environment, and all of a sudden in my career I said “Oh my gosh, here I am teaching [that] genes control life and the cells are telling me that genes respond to life”. And since you can control the response, you can control your life. It’s how you read the environment; how your mind perceives the environment. And if you understand this you can lead yourself to the most wonderful expression on this planet –to be fully alive and fully healthy, by just how you respond to the world.” 
*
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? I watched the film twice so as not to miss which were the shining moments and which were doubtful. The thing about a brilliant creation is that you are placed within it’s light at the time of perception: it not only illuminates the moment but it shines the way ahead –the way the conceptualist has lit the path. Many other paths have to be ignored in the meantime, though I clearly liked this film and the bottom-line message of taking responsibility, delivered right off the top.
The biology news seems troubled, however. Humans beings universally possess the ability to synthesize ‘lactase’, therefore this mechanism is already within us, albeit in a dysfunctional state for the lactose intolerant. It ‘s a far cry for you to whip up an entirely new mechanism than it is to “fix” a broken one. Stem cells have already been noted to be unique –if all our cells were stem cells than I suppose we could be anything we “wanted” to be provided we understood exactly what kind of environment was needed… http://stemcells.nih.gov/StemCells/Templates/StemCellContentPage.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID={A604DCCE-2E5F-4395-8954-FCE1C05BECED}&NRORIGINALURL=%2Finfo%2Ffaqs.asp&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest

Climax, Climate and Change in Copenhagen

 The AGENDA goes full-force and ALL OUT !! If you are yet unconvinced about the contrivance of global warming, consider the 2005 documentary “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”, based on a 2003 book by two reporters from Fortune magazine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enron:_The_Smartest_Guys_in_the_Room Among the activities of Enron executives prior to 2001 was the selling of the ‘weather'; technology that not even prospective investors believed existed. The authors of Enron, who gave no clues to the existence of weather technology, nonetheless drew a comparison to the fact that Enron was well ahead of the curve when ‘broadband’ was also believed not to exist. The documentary is available here: http://freedocumentaries.org/film.php?id=203 For Californians, the engineered downfall of Governor Gray Davis and his replacement with Arnold Schwarzeneggar appears to have been made in the boardroom of Enron.

Americans may not be aware that some of the most progressive environmental legislation ever passed in the US, or in any country, was struck down by the rules of competition from the WTO. Clearly, we have been denied the right to protect ourselves from globalization. The upcoming Copenhagen treaty seeks to levy binding authority by the United Nations on all futher activity of trade and industry; in a nutshell, subordinating the United States Constitution in favor of colonial Maritime Law. States within the US will either have to secede or rally the popular will to uphold the sovereignty of American citizens.  

The Crossroads of Global Government
This December, 2009, world leaders are meeting in Copenhagen to sign on to an international treaty to control climate change. In the words of Lord Christopher Monckton, this will be the end of America’s constitutional republic and there is no turning back. The creators of this document will usurp the rights of every nation on earth and install a world-wide regime that lays claim to every square inch of the planet and every creature that inhabits it. Kiss your freedom goodbye!….or tell your leaders any which you can, NOT TO SIGN on to this tyranny. [posted at http://archsymposia.blogspot.com]

Brief video of Lord Monckton http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddQvhdCyhe4&feature=player_embedded# giving an impassioned and poetic plea for your awareness.

A new film called “Not Evil, Just Wrong” takes a look at the real costs in jobs and quality of life, countering the Warming science with another scientific view. Watch a film trailer http://www.noteviljustwrong.com   

This is probably the most important story I will ever write about. News coverage will comment here and there about ‘climate protests’, perhaps offering the same quality of accuracy as the Swine Flu Pandemic in the days ahead, but nothing in our history compares to the depth and scope of what is happening now –and what is about to happen. It ties up all the threads of world control in the hands of the Rothschilds and their legions of executors. My objective is to continue this post and demonstrate how it works and who is behind it.  But first, ripples must go out across the media to get your favorable attention about an issue that is desirous of popular support. Don’t you want to Save The Planet? Of course you do….

Sat Oct 24, 3:45 pm ET
PARIS (AFP) – Kicking off with thousands gathering on the steps of Sydney’s iconic Opera House, global warming protests took place around the world Saturday to mark 50 days before the UN climate summit.
From Asia to Europe via the Middle East, activists staged lively events addressing world leaders and to mobilise public opinion around climate issues.
Many waved placards bearing the logo 350, referring to 350 parts per million (ppm) of CO2 in the atmosphere which scientists say must not be exceeded to avoid runaway global warming.
France’s politicians received a “wake up” call from several hundred Parisians who chose clocks as their symbol.
Protesters who met in a central square had set their alarm clocks and mobile phones to ring at 12:18 pm (1018 GMT) in reference to the closing date of the summit, which lasts from December 7-18.
The summit is considered crucial as world leaders will try to thrash out a new treaty to curb greenhouse gas emissions in place of the Kyoto Protocol which will expire in 2012.
However, Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen said Saturday that preliminary discussions are not moving fast enough for an international decision to be concluded in Copenhagen.
“It is time to give full speed to the negotiations,” Rasmussen said, adding that he wanted a legally binding international agreement to be in place by January.
There is growing concern that a treaty deal in Copenhagen could be hampered by issues including US domestic politics and the problems of securing agreement between developed and developing countries.
Rasmussen underlined that progress had been made on climate issues but that these “key political questions” still had to be resolved ahead of the December meeting.

___________________

The Science of global warming has a beginning with the discovery of the ‘greenhouse effect’ , described and published between 1824 and 1827 by Joseph Fourier http://www.globalwarmingart.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Joseph_Fourier  and adopted into a carbon emissions theory almost one hundred years later by Svante Arrhenius. The Swede Arrhenius (1859-1927) is considered one of the founders of ‘physical chemistry’ and co-founders of the Nobel Institutes and Prize, which he then accordingly “[used] his positions to arrange prizes for his friends and..to attempt to deny them to his enemies”. Among Arrhenius’s dubious accomplishments was supporting the creation of The State Institute for Racial Biology in Stockholm which lent scientific aire to the practice of compulsory sterilization in Sweden, lawful to 1975. Fourier’s legacy, however, was to note that “Earth primarily gets energy from solar radiation, to which the atmosphere is largely transparent, and that geothermal heat doesn’t contribute much to the energy balance.”  The current discussions address this disparity between CO2 levels and solar energy inputs, reframing the argument in accordance with the properties of gases and heat transfer, quoting from this website http://wwwgeocities.com/doddssanford@sbcglobal.net/Arrhenius_is_Wrong.html that “Adding CO2 actually will cause trivial global cooling at the surface..” 

Arrhenius apparently was not the first to publicize a link between global warming and CO2. That distinction goes to the American Thomas Sterry Hunt, who delivered his conclusions to the British Royal Society in 1878. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Sterry_Hunt

The uptake of CO2 levels as a demonstration of climate change resurged in 1958 under the watch of the Scripps Institute of Oceanography and its director, Roger Revelle. Scripps is a research institution within a partnership complex of the University of California that supports a large medical services system in San Diego county. Readers who’ve followed my blog stories of ‘polio’ and ‘fallout’ are familiar with Scripps as a key facility of the military-industrial-medical cartel, which includes the Salk Institute and (historically) Los Alamos, N.Mex, weapons lab. Revelle, who married Ellen Scripps, participated in the first peacetime A-bomb tests (in 1946) called Operation Crossroads and in ’58 he supported Charles ‘Dave’ Keeling at the Mauna Loa (Hawaii) observatory as the ‘evidence’ of CO2 emissions was plotted. 1958 became the first International Geophysical Year (IGY) under Revelle’s guidance and it even appears that the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) was founded to develop global warming science. Near the end of Revelle’s official leadership of the Scripps Institute, in 1963, he established the Center for Population Studies at Harvard which took on the academic challenge of ‘World Hunger’, a central issue of global climate change. Revelle returned to UCSD as a professor of climate change, energy development and marine policy and remained a central figure in the Pugwash Conferences and IGY activity until his death in 1991. Dave Keeling also remained active until his death in 2005, in spite of nearly having his funding pulled early on by the National Science Foundation on account of the CO2 fluctuation/increase being perceived as ‘routine’.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_David_Keeling

Climate Change science as we know it now was (likely) hatched by the Big Energy consortium that heard the airing of a report in 1956 by Shell Oil geologist Marion King Hubbert –the Peak Oil report– confirmed as true in 1971, convenient to the first Club of Rome publication “Limits To Growth”. Hubbert, who died in 1989, remained the only source of “factual proof about the case”, according to http://www.princeton.edu/hubbert/the-peak.html , and did not live to see his revised prediction of catastrophic oil shortages by 1995. But ‘shortage’ of the natural-raw-material kind, has never been a problem in the oil industry according to “The Age of Oil” author Leonardo Maugeri. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/02/070214-cheap-gas.html.

This is truly about corporate and political hegemony exploiting and ‘witholding’ one set of resources until another becomes available to rival it. Well… those days are here. And in the words of the Club of Rome 1993 report “The First Global Revolution”, those resources are the grassroots. The bottom line on climate science looks to be a pillow fight, lacking hard evidence, for some long time to come. Review some of the controversies here, http://www.climatepolice.com/mission.html and read about the scientific publishing malfeasance going on here http://bishophill.squarespace.com/blog/2008/8/11/caspar-and-the-jesus-paper.html Globalization has already occurred over the last two decades and integrated information systems are now merging into a Global Brain, we must understand, but the barriers of constitutional nations are the last hold-out for acquiring Consent of the governed. Climate Change is just such a design for your consent. 

Todd Stern, US Special Envoy for Climate Change, says “you will not hear anyone in this [Obama] Administration question the science” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOK13GWfXUw

  http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/biog/122554.htm 

An “Open Letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations”, written by 100 prominent scientists , declares “..the current UN approach of CO2 reduction is likely to increase human suffering from future climate change rather than decrease it….In stark contrast to the often repeated assertion that the science of climate change is ‘settled’  significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming…IPCC working groups were generally instructed..to consider work published only through May, 2005 [and] these important findings are not included..” http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/reprint/open_letter_to_un.html ,Dec.2007

Todd Stern represents the think tank ‘Center for American Progress’ as a Senior Fellow of the institution,  founded in part by the Sandler family of California and sustained by the funding of George Soros (Gyorgy Schwartz) . The “left-leaning” CAP was established in 1994 during the Clinton Administration to act as a base for political transition to the Obama Administration. http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Center_for_American_Progress. Soros, in so many ways, is the visible hand of the Rothschilds at work in the world, exposed as “Your Enemy” here in the ‘dossier’ compiled through the auspices of Lyndon LaRouche: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/archivos_pdf/soros_dosier.pdf

Watch this 1990 film as a primer for the climate science debate (approx. 55 minutes) . At minute 50,near to the last words of the film ” People hate each other about this issue…have you ever seen a nastier scientific issue? Would you march down the road toward a policy which, people have rightfully said, requires an economic restructuring of the world knowing that the world was behaving opposite to what the basis for that policy said?”

ClimateGate !! More than 10 years worth of hacked email reveals scientific Fraud over climate change: http://theinfounderground.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8393 for news, videos and more, also included in this thread is an interesting perspective on the Hegelian use of this ‘hacker’ story found at the anti-communitarian blog of Niki Raapana http://nikiraapana.blogspot.com/2009/11/etzionis-ideas-used-by-climategate.html

President Obama’s Science Advisor, John P. Holdren, has some choice ideas about Climate Change solutions; http://kdka.com/national/president.barack.obama.2.980111.html “One option raised by Holdren and proposed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays…Holdren said ‘It’s got to be looked at…We don’t have the luxury..of ruling any approach off the table…We’re talking about all these issues in the White House.’ Holdren, a 1981 winner of a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant, outlined these possible geoengineering options: Shooting sulfur particles into the upper atmosphere..proposed by Nobel Laureate Paul Crutzen in 2006; creating “artificial trees” –giant towers that suck up carbon dioxide out of the air and store it– to ‘try to produce a cooling effect to offset the heating effect..’ said Holdren. But he said there could be grave side effects [such as droughts and irrepairable ozone holes]…’It would be preferable by far’ he said ‘to solve this problem by reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses’..” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_P._Holdren , described here as dangerously out-of-touch [insane] http://westernfrontamerica.com/2009/07/17/horrid-dr-holdren

Modern War, 1968

Excerpt from *”The Biological Time Bomb”, author Gordon Rattray Taylor, copyright 1968
[page 184]

“In current thinking, the best way to wage war is to wage it without your enemy even being aware that it is happening. If, for example, you can control the weather so as to ensure poor crops for your enemy and good ones for yourself, in the course of years you will gradually improve the position of your country relative to his. Then perhaps you could quietly introduce a few crop diseases –nothing dramatic which would lead to suspicion, just a slight rise here and there apparently from some natural cause. And why stop at plant or stock diseases? Some minor human epidemics might help. Even the common cold keeps people away from work. It might be ten years or more before it dawned on the health authorities that they were really being too unlucky with minor illnesses. Meanwhile you inflate your own statistics a little, to avoid odious comparisons. And, of course, this is merely the biological side. Industrial disputes, insurance losses, the draining away of brain-power, and a thousand other things will help to undermine the strength of a country. Even a narrow-minded regime, an obfuscating religion, can prevent a country’s progress. And who knows whether this is just a speculation? Perhaps there are nations consciously waging this kind of warfare now.”

..”Or perhaps actual gene warfare. If viruses can be used to carry new genetic material into cells, perhaps one could tamper with the genes of another nation without their ever realizing the fact. History would simply record, as it has so often in the past, that such-an-such a nation rose to power while certain other countries entered a decline.”

In 1968 the Club of Rome was created as a policy think-tank of international science and businessmen that counted heads of State among its supporting members. Two very influential publications define the objectives of the Club; “Limits To Growth” distributed in 1972 and “The First Global Revolution” in 1993. The Club came to define the “new enemy” in its ’93 report prepared by (co-founder) Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider, http://scribd.com/doc/13160503/The-First-Global-Revolution-Club-of-Rome
[page 75]
In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill.
                                                    …The real enemy then is humanity itself
                                                   

Excerpts from “The First Global Revolution” offered in context:

“1968 was the year of the Great Divide. It marked the zenith as well as the end of the long post-war period of rapid economic growth in the industrial countries. But it was also a year of social unrest with the eruption of student uprisings in many countries and other manifestations of alienation and counter-culture protest..”–“Limits To Growth was never intended as a prophecy, but rather as a warning..” 

“The topic of recent [late 80s] Club of Rome meetings has been the ‘Great Transition': we are convinced that we are in the early stages of the formation of a new type of world society which will be as different from..the Industrial Revolution [was] from the society of the long agrarian period that preceded it.”

[page 29] “The New Plagues”…”that of crime, violence and coercion organized for monetary gain or political power..[like] the well-organized drug trade.”

[concerning the spiral of national debts enhanced by the WB/IMF lending programs of the 1970s, pp.57-58] “The cost of debt service each year is influenced by interest rates and the value of the dollar. This dangerously unstable situation..if unattended, may well undermine the future prospects of the world economy..
   On its own, the debtedness of the developing countries constitutes a serious and growing threat…New resources will also be needed on a substantial scale.
   Developing a viable approach to the debt and development problem will require a far more coherent linkage of policies and institutions concerned with financial management (IMF), with investment and development (the Word Bank), and trade (UNCTAD, CATP)…In spite of institutional reluctance, policy objectives and actions in such interlinked fields as finance, debt management, investment, development policy, human resource development, trade, and environment must be made more coherent.”

[page64] “In general, non-governmental activity has achieved a new order of importance..”
“The Asian Dragons, otherwise known as NICs (Newly Industrialized Countries..Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea) have achieved great prosperity which is based to a large extent on exploitation of the new technologies. There is a lesson here…”
   “(Some of the poorer countries are also showing the results of creative inititative –for example, the recent progress in Botswana and consistent development in Zimbabwe)”

“Through numerous multilateral or bilateral conferences, meetings and telephone calls, personal relationships are being established which enable a better understanding among the human beings behind the official masks.”

[page66] ..”the end of the ‘American Dream’ which lost its credibility with the painful Vietnam War,..Hispanic migration,..poverty within plenty, drugs, violence and AIDS, and the fact that the ‘melting pot’ no longer worked were..factors in its demise.”
   “The need for enemies seems to be a common historical factor. Some states have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by blaming external enemies. The ploy of finding a scapegoat is as old as mankind itself –when things become too difficult at home, divert attention to adventure abroad. Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose.”

..”the sudden absence of traditional adversaries has left governments and public opinion with a great void to fill. New enemies have to be identified, new strategies imagined and new weapons devised. The new enemies..threaten the whole human race, and their names are pollution, water shortage, famine, malnutrition, illiteracy and unemployment. However it appears as yet insufficient for bringing about world cohesion and solidarity for the fight. Also the failure of many ideologies has removed some of the necessary points of reference.”

[page71]..”f’reedom’ alone cannot reorganize a state, write a constitution, create a market  and establish economic growth, rebuild industry and agriculture, or build a new social structure…This is why the concept of human rights simply ‘initiates’ but cannot implement the process of democratization…The old democracies have functioned reasonably well over the last two hundred years, but they appear now to be in a phase of complacent stagnation”
..”It is hoped..that people will not reproduce slavish copies of existing models that are unable to meet contemporary needs. Democracy is not a panacea… It is unaware of its own limits”..

“In its present form, democracy is no longer well suited for use [in the] tasks ahead…”

“Winston Churchill was right when he quipped ‘Democracy is the worst of all systems, except for the rest’. “..we must be aware of its erosion, its fragility and its limitations…a democracy is particularly damaging at the international level. When..international policing is required, delays on taking decisions can mortally affect the lives of thousands of people.”

[page73] “The problem then is to invent instruments of governance capable of coping with change…we also have to determine the characteristics of the capacity to govern. ‘Global Governance’ in our vocabulary does not imply a global ‘government’ but rather the institutions set up for cooperation, coordination and common action”..
[page74]..”large bureaucracies that spread their tentacles around the centers of power..slow down or paralyze both decision-making and implementation.”

..”a dynamic world needs an effective nervous system at the grassroots level..to make the identification of every citizen with the common process of governance possible.
   In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill.
…The real enemy then, is humanity itself…thus sparing no region, no society.”..”[social] phenomena are setting the stage, on many different levels, for a new upsetting environment where deviant behavior is in general..perceived as being commonplace”..

[page77] “Parents and teachers, the point of reference in most societies, have not been prepared by their education to adjust to the new situation imposed upon them today. As the late sociologist Margaret Mead remarked, “Young people are the native population of the new world in which we adults are immigrants”. Some of us would even go along with her observation that “nowhere in the world do there exist adults who know what their children know…In the past, there were always some elders who knew more..than any child. Today there are no longer any.”

“Thanks to modern information technology, young people are being exposed rapidly to more and more tacts that give them reason to believe that their elders lack responsibility and are unaware of enormous dangers,..shocks that lead to the feeling of generalized disorder.”
..”Children watch television and learn about all aspects of human life. They learn to be persons with individual choices, inclinations and freedom. The conflict between inherited and acquired values is such that if a young person wants to think and act for himself, he must have lots of courage or he will break down. Not having been given the means to distinguish the fundamental meaning…the younger generation is rejecting traditions and values as a whole and sketching out new trends: today, adolescents are the ones who know about and contribute to the major transnational trends, and try to stand firm against the dangers. Their parents now have to seek their consent and negotiate their own former unquestioned authority.”
…”there is only one way out..[for parents to] truly listen to and learn from their children..”

[page79] “Signs of discord have gradually appeared in the global society, inducing fear and bringing young people together despite differences of class, culture and country.”
..”another aspect of this great transition is the felt need to go back to the ancient spiritual principles..or to find solace in cults and pseudo religions..”
..”the Western model of modernization, consumption, economic growth and social progress..has not kept its promise”

“The three worlds –the Industrialized one, the second one mainly constituted by the Communist countries..and the underdeveloped Third World– are no more.”

[page83]”Never in the course of history has humanity been faced with so many threats and dangers…man is sucked into a global cyclone of confusion, swirling with seemingly unrelated factors, the causes of which form an inextricable maze…”
..”mankind is overwhelmed by the range of the difficulties confronting it from all sides; overwhelmed –and the word is not too strong– because the traditional structures, governments and institutions can no longer manage the problems…To make things worse, the archaic and unsuitable structures are themselves in the midst of a true moral crisis. The disappearance of value systems,..traditions,..collapse of ideologies,..absence of a global vision,..practices of democracy — all contribute to the void confronting societies.”

“States with constitutional laws and rights violate international law whenever the matter is solely one of national interest…Religions often serve as an excuse for fraticidal strife…”

“What we observe today is a general malaise which strikes men with stupor, paralysis and unnamed fears…This is the formidable challenge..”
“A global challenge requires a global approach.”

One might ask if the purpose of the Vietnam War was to wake the sleepy “Asian Dragons” and draw out the industrial might of the East. The multi-use objectives of the 60s, 1968 in particular, set American society (and elsewhere) into a fever of dissarray that hastened the Youth culture repudiation of tradition and values that would later ensnare them in mass-media subversion and drugs. In a continuation of the race riots, rechanneled and expanded, the 60s war protests offered the seeding of ‘hope and peace’ in the birth of the Ecology movement.

Two of Hollywood’s blockbusters that year: ‘2001, A Space Odyssey’ (remember the Embryonic Child?) and ‘Planet of the Apes’..
