Forum Post: 99% Unity

BLOG

(hopefully updated weekly)

(I plan to ignore derogatory comments and negativity, which are divisive and energy-draining.)

GOAL

End Major Power Abuse

(Unjust War, Covert Ops Terrorism, Economic Incompetence, Unjust Imprisonment and Other Govt Abuse)

PLAN

(1) Unify Religions Multiculturally

(first Christians, then Christians with Muslims, Judaists et al)

(2) Do Political Activist Spiritual Unity Missionary Work

(3) Hold Multicultural Spiritual Unity Festivals

(9/28/13) PLAN UPDATE: I'll be at a Catholic Worker group next week, that's also affiliated with Jesus Radicals. Two of them are Quakers and I've associated with Quakers a lot in the past. All three groups seem to be politically active quite a bit. The Jesus Radicals website has an article by Art Gish, who was part of an organic farm community near Athens, OH. He apparently has done a lot of writing and activism to help bring Christians, Muslims and Jews together for peace. I met him in 1995, but I didn't join the group because I thought they insisted that people must believe in Jesus to be "saved".

LINK

The Bible Is Libertarian (or something like that) http://bilib.webs.com

ACTION

(9/26/13) Seeking missionaries at http://Tentmaker.org forum

(9/27/13) Blogging on OWS (I invite collaboration by pm.)

Tentmaker

(9/28/13) Someone pm'ed me here, but I didn't get to reply and now I don't know how to find it back. --- Tentmaker --- Considering http://GaiaOnline.com

(10/8) I got back from Catholic Workers yesterday. On Tentmaker I heard about Unity Church. I'd heard of them long ago, but didn't know they actually preach unity and universalism, even more than just Christian unity by the way. So I'll check them out on Sunday. If they seem promising, I hope to say why here next week.

I plan to meet with someone from AFSC next week. That's American Friends Service Committee.

I think all religions must be challenged constantly to verify intent of good and total neutrality from any and all politics. Goals may sometimes fall along the same lines but nonetheless remain in neturality. Politicans should never bring up religion in polita-speak. Also, verifying neutrality.

[-] 0 points by lkindr (58) 6 months ago

Religion is supposed to be about morality and so is politics, so they are compatible, when both are based on morality. Si? The goal to unify all religions is meant to include atheists and agnostics too. In other words everyone should be able to get along and respect each other's views, except for views that deny human rights.

[-] 1 points by nazihunter (657) 6 months ago

That's a fair sentiment. Religion is already fused with politics. In fact, as we go back in history, we see how political leaders like Constantine re-wrote religion to suit his political agenda. That's what happens. Already done. Already a failure. Look at the West Bank. Look at the Middle East. It's religion that has made peace impossible. If what you're saying could even be proven to be successful in a microcosm, I'd be more of a believer.

[-] 1 points by lkindr (58) 6 months ago

There are religions of peace. That's what they can all evolve to.

[-] 1 points by nazihunter (657) 6 months ago

Agreed. I'm just saying it's a very tall order.

Hey look, it's the dumbass that wrote a thread and then changed the original post because he is a cockroach. Nice job.

He want's to play zOMG with us.

Let's see, we have the Jesus as libe(R)tarian BS.

We have a blank page.

And we have anime online games.

All in a thread consisting of BS.

How long before he edits the whole kit and kaboodle?

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (21784) 6 months ago

Well, will it matter what kind of response we give to the post?

[-] 1 points by Kavatz (464) from Edmonton, AB 6 months ago

Who cares what you think. Over time your points will drop to nothing. You will be as insignificant as the gentle, innocent people you walk all over.

Here's what you do:

  1. Copy-paste news

  2. Hurt and sabotage new visitors to the community

Can't you just make one post for news that interests you and add to it? At least it would be useful. Maybe a new post for real significant events if someone doesn't beat you to it.

Ok, I won't tell you how to do your job anymore.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 6 months ago

Good question. I suppose as long as the comments do not relate to anything - then they should be safe to make - considering any further total replacement of the post repeat.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (21784) 6 months ago

Cool because bananas have a rather short shelf life if one does not freeze them.

I have heard that said somewhere else. HUH. Snow is more likely to fall in a region during it's winter months rather than it's summer months.

[-] -3 points by Kavatz (464) from Edmonton, AB 6 months ago

Haha, when will this wretched dinosaur end. You're the worst type of stuck... spending all day moaning about surface issues. Yes, we need to be kept aware of current issues, but we don't have to lunge for the throat of anyone sharing new ideas, like the rabid hound.

I don't have time to sit here organizing control of the forum, searching histories on schedule to mass-stinkle. I don't have time for multiple account games. This isn't my life, so I can't compete with you.

Like the schoolyard bully who failed 3 times, please... just wait for high school.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26737) 6 months ago

"spending all day moaning about surface issues"

Yeah we should be completely concerned with chem trails, agenda 21 and the NWO.

If you dislike equishift content, vote it down. That's the intention. I put some stuff there just for you. Hoping you can prove your prisonplanet conspiracy theory.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26737) 6 months ago

Sure you were...............:)

Unfortunately for you, GF has posted more relevant threads than most of around here.

You?

Not so much, and your attempts to smear her?

To me anyway, it just lends that prisonplanet feel to everything you've ever posted.

You believe that shit, or you wouldn't have posted it in the first place..

Hmm, invited me to lunch so she could shoot me.

Such a charming lass.

I wasn't going to shoot you.

I just thought it would be interesting if you actually put your money where your mouth is. You would rather talk a bunch of shit. Cool. You don't have the cajones. It's ok. I understand.

But, don't lie and say I wanted to shoot you.

Personally, I need to see unity before the end of civilization. So the shit some people do on here is like a stab in the heart to me. I mean, come on, why do you guys have to drive people away? Do you really want to whittle this community down to a few people with the same perspective and stale ideas?

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20576) from South Burlington, VT 6 months ago

what you neeeeeed is air to breathe, and water to drink. What you want - or so you claim - is unity. That is a fine thing. A fine aspiration. But what good is unity when many in the crowd come with preexisting misconceptions that are completely self defeating?

I don't know about you,

but I will not be defeated.

There is no such thing as a free market. It simply does not exist.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (21784) 6 months ago

You are such a lying conniving little bitch. Really. You're a fucking cockroach. Nothing more and nothing less.

"I need to see unity before the end of civilization"

You should consider trying honesty.

As to your final statement?

Trashy whittled it down over a year ago. I found numerous posts to that effect in the archives.

I'm not one of the two people guaranteed to jump into action when dogfriday yelps. I figured you guys get paid to sabotage the forum but since you don't take days off, I'm thinking you two alcoholics have nothing better to do. This is your fix, isn't it?

you must be trashy macaque and you have never had two accounts because you have always had at least 200 . . .

When will the soap opera finally bore you?

[-] -3 points by Narley (-634) 6 months ago

This is probably a little off topic, but I’ll mention it anyway. The phrase “99%” is a marketing phrase. In spite of what some people think OWS does not support the 99%. In fact, if you use this forum as a gauge, most people hate probably 50% of the population. I mean people here demonize anyone with even the slightest conservative bent, or own a gun, or simply doesn’t believe OWS is relevant.

Give or take a few percentage points the masses are split pretty evenly between liberal and conservative. That fact is generally ignored on this forum. So my point is OWS doesn’t even come close to 99% support.

I’m not knocking OWS. I’m just saying the 99% slogan is old, tired and needs to be replaced with something of relevance.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21784) 6 months ago

Narley, quit fucking whining. Really.

[-] 0 points by lkindr (58) 6 months ago

I believe majority rule is a major problem in our society and that representative government is meant to represent the interests of all of the people, not just a vague majority. So I think 99% is a good slogan for more ideal govt. I agree that people around here seem about as intolerant as they come, but I want to encourage CHANGE in that regard.

[-] 1 points by Narley (-634) 6 months ago

Thank you. That's the best case I've heard yet on the 99% slogan. I've brought it up before and folks view it as a attack on OWS. It's not.

[-] -3 points by ChristopherABrown (550) from Santa Barbara, CA 6 months ago

EXCELLENT POST! Mr. Narley, you kick ass.

The demands were relevant, but they are just demands based on complaints. We know them now. Time and the 1% have shown us our complaints will increase if we do not DO SOMETHING.

The greatest relevance ="what to do?"

Perhaps even the haters would concede that. The nwo default apathetic nihilists are probably the worst we could confront.

I've seen the the gravest complaints are just too much for the deprived western mind. The public could not comprehend and fend off dissociation of the most relevant information for comprehensive solution.

Maybe we do not need that. Maybe just an appropriate change in conditions would be enough. If the public realized what free speech implied, that we would have the means to share the facts needed to survive. It is implied that free speech, and the implied agreement which can be found from it; that understanding is also needed.

The implications include consideration of 300 million Americans being able to share facts equally. Huge undertaking, but, with time and cooperation and some very thoughtful legislation, it could be done well enough.

But people do not know what free speech needs to be, or, they might support such a notion.

Narley says we should all get some guns move to Texas!!!

Will you be leaving shortly?

[-] 0 points by shooz (26737) 6 months ago

He's talkin' about Texas alright.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26737) 6 months ago

Somehow, the films sentiment isn't reflected in Narley's comments, nor in the Texas legislature.

For the life of me, I can't see what this has to do with gun nuttery and anti-unionism.

Nor an entire town getting blown up over anti-regulation.
