Now that the Mist hangs over Avalon area, I'm going to listen to the audio books "The Lord of the Ring" by Tolkien,
maybe look through some scenes of the movie too. Every 10 years or so, I read or see The Lord of the Ring. Each time I find more symbolic meaning and I'm aware, in admiration and gratitude, of how this great story is
showing the forces that rule human nature, even ET nature, in a way, subterranean nature, nature of plant-life
and forces that rule the gaining of wisdom in all those expressions, in times of peace and war, for humans and
"Babette's Feast echoes some of the themes of the Danish religious philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, whose work was published shortly
before the story takes place. This story, like Kierkegaard, dwells on the struggle between duty and sacrifice and the contrast of faith
with the aesthetic. Since these struggles often require self-denial and restraint, Kierkegaard was also obsessed with the possibilities
for recovering what was lost. Like many individuals of faith, Kierkegaard was interested in the search for the infinite and the transcen-
dent, but he also recognized the "return to the finite" as an important stage in spiritual growth. In many ways, Babette's Feast is a
story about the possibilities for recovering what was lost through a rediscovery of the beauty and spirituality of ordinary, finite things.
The film approaches such themes with a quiet spirit that Kierkegaard often lacked and with some enduring ambiguity that he would
Blixen never fully came to share Kierkegaard's faith. She spoke often against the "poisonous tradition of dualism" in
Christianity, the tendency to "divorce the sensual from the spiritual." The culinary pleasures of the meal—from wine to turtle soup—soothe the body and soul, inspiring reconciliation as readily as they awaken a repressed appetite. If nothing else, this film
blends the sensory and the spiritual: the early cinematography, full of vibrant shades in the cold dawn, the wind-tossed grasslands
and forbidding splendor of the Jutland bluffs suggest that the strict Lutherans enjoy an austere beauty in their simple lives that sets
the stage for the visual splendor of the extravagant feast. The supper is no mere symbol or allusion to the Christian Eucharist:
the camera lingers long and patiently on each course of the meal, as we watch the characters' moral awakening as the wine and
What is the Federal Reserve system? How did it come into existence? Is it part of the federal government? How does it create money? Why is the public kept in the dark about these important matters? In this feature-length documentary film, The Corbett Report explores these important question and pulls back the curtain on America's central bank.
“How Big Oil Conquered the World” is a brilliant piece of investigative journalism presented by James Corbett,1 revealing the immense extent to which the oil industry has shaped and is ruling the world as we know it.
“From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the petrochemical industry.
The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.”
Corbett carefully details the sordid back story of today’s “oiligarchy.” While most people are well-acquainted with the Rockefeller name, few probably know the true history of the Rockefellers’ rise to power.
Our world knows four international crimes: war crimes, genocide, torture and crimes against humanity. Spanish examining magistrate Baltasar Garzón and Scottish lawyer Polly Higgins believe that this list of serious violations of international law should be expanded with a fifth: ecocide. Will Higgins and Garzón eventually succeed in gaining enough support to get recognition for ecocide, truly putting the large-scale destruction of our ecosystems high on the international political agenda once and for all?
Scottish Polly Higgins was laughed at when she first proclaimed that the Earth needs a lawyer. That those who cause ecological destruction should be held accountable, and therefore be sued, summoned and punished. Originally a trial lawyer, Higgins now entirely devotes her life and work to the Earth, as a legal eco-activist. Since 2011, she has been leading the international movement against ecocide. This is the large-scale destruction of our ecosystems, for instance the vanishing vegetation in the Amazon, the devastating oil spills in the Niger Delta and the tar sands in Canada.
This militant lawyer combines compassion and charm with conviction and decisiveness. In special training sessions she teaches people to use their own talents in a practical way for a sustainable planet.
VPRO Backlight follows Polly Higgins and her ‘earth guardians’ on their missions throughout 2015, a year that, more than any other year, offers a ‘window of opportunity'. Higgins will visit Lapland, where Europe’s last piece of unspoiled nature could fall prey to mining. She consults with politicians, such as the Swedish Minister for the Environment, and governors of small island states like Tuvalu and Vanuatu, which are threatened by the rising sea level.
In Madrid, the world-famous examining magistrate Baltasar Garzón is also working tirelessly as a lawyer, pushing for international legislation that will make it possible to call big polluters and destroyers of nature to account. The man behind Augusto Pinochet’s arrest in 1998 is currently focused on crimes against the Earth. Together with his daughter María, he calls on world leaders to protect the planet against crimes which he regards as equal to torture and genocide. After dictators and governments, now it’s the multinationals’ turn.
Including Polly Higgins (lawyer), Baltasar Garzón (jurist), Michael Baumgartner (campaign manager Greenpeace Switzerland), Bronwyn Lay (environmental lawyer, Australia).
This detailed presentation clearly explains the connection between sustainable development and Agenda 21 as defined by the UN. In depth research shows how Agenda 21 will ultimately compromise your property rights.
Some have suggested they have "read Agenda 21 " and there is nothing dangerous in the book and besides, the document has no power to override their Constitutional right to own and control private property.
To read the book alone, without reading the preceeding and following documentation and activites would be somewhat like looking at a map of Brazil and feeling you now know how Brazilians think and feel.
The name A21 refers not only to the actual book, but to the entire sustainable development movement as defined by the United Nations dating back to the 1970's through today. That is why it is important to not only listen to the entire video, but research on your own to gain more information. Since this presentation was completed vast new volumes of information have been compiled. Check the sources in the back of the presentation and the United Nation's own websites to draw your own conclusions.
Allan Watt is one of the most prolific researchers and educators on the subject of global governance, Geo-politics and the unfolding new world order.
The information he broadcasts from his flagship radio show called "Cutting through the Matrix" is meticulously and thoroughly researched, evoking the listener to think about the world around them, not as it is presented but rather how they are governed by it.
Who are the players that design this world policy and manipulatively attempt to control portions of our population through policies and agendas unbeknown to so many?
Who are the organizations that guide sovereign nations to compliance and thus prepare us for servitude through perpetual debt and intended crisis?
