Packets of Global
Afterall, the First Peoples of the Earth Have Told Us, Before We Got Into Our Bleeding Mess:

The New, Heart-Centered United Nations – Grounded in Our Humanity, Aligned to Our Morality for A Greater Spirituality of the Earth and All Beings
From the Semitic Light to the Greater Light as the Visionary Priest-Paleontologist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Saw in Humanity's Evolutionary Potential:
"Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of Love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."
At the Same
Time, Teilhard Gave Us Guideposts to the Oneness of Our Humanity and the
Interconnectedness of our Spirituality:
"We are one, after all, you and I. Together we suffer, together exist, and forever will recreate each other."
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."
"The world is round so that friendship may encircle it."
Finally, the New, Heart-Centered United Nations is about Organizing the
World Through the New World Paradigm of our Heart-Centered Humanity,
Moving on Through the Divisive and
Old World Hollowness of "Nationality":
"The Age of Nations is Past. It remains for us now, if we do not wish to perish, to set aside the ancient prejudices and build the Earth"
In Our Humanity We Are Able
to Take Responsibility at the Root Level for Our Taxes and the
Preservation of Life and Liberty for All
"It is sheer folly
to expect justice from the unprincipled"
A Just World for All Humanity

"No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a
piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by
the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as
if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death
diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never
send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."– John Donne, Meditation XVII, English clergyman & Poet
"Injustice anywhere is a
threat to justice everywhere."
For Liberation into A Higher, Love-Centered
All Are One in The Light
The Word "semitic" is not exclusive to one religion, but in definition means the thought and ethic of a supreme Universal deity and authority that transmits through the monotheisitc line of Abraham, originating with Noah, and which is the foundation of the three major, socio-historical faiths in time: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Essentially, we find, the three major religions are different aspects of the One thought and ethic for the social progression and upliftment of all human beings with one another. This means in reality, and in the teachings of all three, to be against Christians is to be "anti-semitic"; to be against Judaism is to be "anti-semitic"; and to be against Islam is to be "anti-semitic". They are all one and continuous through the line of Abrahamic thought and ethic that is to uplift, socialize and evolve human beings through a moral framework that allows for the inner and outer work of a "more perfect union" through a "unity in diversity": the two overarching ideals of the American Founding.
We Know in the Golden Rule, War is an Anomaly to the Peace, Progress and Health of a Nation and the World—Where the Prophets of Greed Have Overtaken the Prophets of Wisdom. "By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them" (Sound Familiar?)
Vice (no pun intended) President Cheney gave us a hint as to what we must do to help our predicament here.
Revolution = The 98% Majority Solution to
Truth + Peace = Justice2
Truth [9/11] + Golden Rule [Peace] =
Truth + Peace = Justice2
Truth [9/11] + Golden Rule [Peace] =Planetization [Justice2]
We Believe in the Teachings of Our Various Religions and Wisdom Traditions that We Hold a Common Belief With All in a Better Work:
"From swords to ploughshares, engaging our Spirit for the building of Humanity."
We believe we, human beings are at our happiest when we help all and harm none. We believe we’ve all got something to give to this world; We believe when we express from the uniqueness of ourselves we are fulfilled, happy and sovereign.
We believe in Life; We believe in Liberty; We believe in the Pursuit of Happiness. We have the Planetization blueprint and plan that harms none and helps all. We believe governance through the human heart is the best governance of all. We believe our structural dynamic needs to change to match the nobleness of the human heart. We know that dynamic as Truth, Beauty, Wisdom, Justice and Love as an indivisible and holistic Whole.
We know that at the
very essence of ourselves we are not "national" beings but human beings
responsible to all as one seamless Whole:
animals-humans-environment. We have a unifying framework for that
all-inclusive and encompassing idea: Planetization: The Other
Kind of Globalization: Bottom Up and Healthy
Why is the Golden Rule imperative in the activism of The "SO" Revolution? Because it is a deeply rooted moral dynamic that allows for the onward and upward progression of the Human Race–in a Holistic, transcendent framework that is universal, not national, with other life and their ecosystems on the Planet.
All for One and One for All is our responsibility to each other and to the Earth as WE FORSAKE THE DELUSIONAL AND DESTRUCTIVE PURSUIT of the "War on Terror." Louise Arbour, the (soon-to-be resigned) U.N. Human Rights Commissioner has said in an interview with Australian journalist, George Negus, our rights have been set back by DECADES. It is because of this, and the backward slide of our world into total murder and mayhem in both Machiavellian and Third Reich proportions, "The Semitic Peoples Light" was sparked to bring back our God-given Humanity, rights and the consequent civility into the world with each other and Nature—from the mandatory new space and place of Planetization that is aligned and Home to it all.
Without our response to the world we have it will be doom—for the trajectory is evident; with our response here we have the power to shift the coordinates that are aligned to the empowerment of our highest potential as Humans, both individually and collectively as a Race where we have been given to reside on one of the most beautiful love-and-gnosis-driven planets of the greater Cosmos.
The Cosmos itself holds all Life in the Law of Oneness and Radiance of a higher possibility for this world in the sacred depths of our own consciousness where Science and Creator meet. Planetization, holding the right coordinates for the world, is the super-charged space ship to take us to that unexplored possibility, together, as a Human Family and Nation where Life, Liberty and Happiness have merged for the benefit and enjoyment of all.

Address On State of the Nation and World by Mayor Ross C. “Rocky” Anderson on October 27, 2007
Salt Lake City, Utah
Today, as we come together once again in this great city, we raise our voices in unison to say to President Bush, to Vice President Cheney, to other members of the Bush Administration (past and present), to a majority of Congress, including Utah’s entire congressional delegation, and to much of the mainstream media: “You have failed us miserably and we won’t take it any more.”
“While we had every reason to expect far more of you, you have been pompous, greedy, cruel, and incompetent as you have led this great nation to a moral, military, and national security abyss.”
“You have breached trust with the American people in the most egregious ways. You have utterly failed in the performance of your jobs. You have undermined our Constitution, permitted the violation of the most fundamental treaty obligations, and betrayed the rule of law.”
“You have engaged in, or permitted, heinous human rights abuses of the sort never before countenanced in our nation’s history as a matter of official policy. You have sent American men and women to kill and be killed on the basis of lies, on the basis of shifting justifications, without competent leadership, and without even a coherent plan for this monumental blunder.”
“We are here to tell you: We won’t take it any more!”
“You have acted in direct contravention of values that we, as Americans who love our country, hold dear. You have deceived us in the most cynical, outrageous ways. You have undermined, or allowed the undermining of, our constitutional system of checks and balances among the three presumed co-equal branches of government. You have helped lead our nation to the brink of fascism, of a dictatorship contemptuous of our nation’s treaty obligations, federal statutory law, our Constitution, and the rule of law.”
“Because of you, and because of your jingoistic false ‘patriotism,’ our world is far more dangerous, our nation is far more despised, and the threat of terrorism is far greater than ever before.
It has been absolutely astounding how you have committed the most horrendous acts, causing such needless tragedy in the lives of millions of people, yet you wear your so-called religion on your sleeves, asserting your God-is-on-my-side nonsense – when what you have done flies in the face of any religious or humanitarian tradition. Your hypocrisy is mind-boggling – and disgraceful. What part of “Thou shalt not kill” do you not understand? What part of the “Golden rule” do you not understand? What part of “be honest,” “be responsible,” and “be accountable” don’t you understand? What part of “Blessed are the peacekeepers” do you not understand?
Because of you, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed, many thousands of people have suffered horrendous lifetime injuries, and millions have been run off from their homes. For the sake of our nation, for the sake of our children, and for the sake of our brothers and sisters around the world, we are morally compelled to say, as loudly as we can, ‘We won’t take it any more!’ ”
“As United States agents kidnap, disappear, and torture human beings around the world, you justify, you deceive, and you cover up. We find what you have done to men, women and children, and to the good name and reputation of the United States, so appalling, so unconscionable, and so outrageous as to compel us to call upon you to step aside and allow other men and women who are competent, true to our nation’s values, and with high moral principles to stand in your places – for the good of our nation, for the good of our children, and for the good of our world.”
In the case of the President and Vice President, this means impeachment and removal from office, without any further delay from a complacent, complicit Congress, the Democratic majority of which cares more about political gain in 2008 than it does about the vindication of our Constitution, the rule of law, and democratic accountability.
It means the election of people as President and Vice President who, unlike most of the presidential candidates from both major parties, have not aided and abetted in the perpetration of the illegal, tragic, devastating invasion and occupation of Iraq. And it means the election of people as President and Vice President who will commit to return our nation to the moral and strategic imperative of refraining from torturing human beings.
In the case of the majority of Congress, it means electing people who are diligent enough to learn the facts, including reading available National Intelligence Estimates, before voting to go to war. It means electing to Congress men and women who will jealously guard Congress’s sole prerogative to declare war. It means electing to Congress men and women who will not submit like vapid lap dogs to presidential requests for blank checks to engage in so-called preemptive wars, for legislation permitting warrantless wiretapping of communications involving US citizens, and for dangerous, irresponsible, saber-rattling legislation like the recent Kyl-Lieberman amendment.
We must avoid the trap of focusing the blame solely upon President Bush and Vice-President Cheney. This is not just about a few people who have wronged our country – and the world. They were enabled by members of both parties in Congress, they were enabled by the pathetic mainstream news media, and, ultimately, they have been enabled by the American people – 40% of whom are so ill-informed they still think Iraq was behind the 9/11 attacks – a people who know and care more about baseball statistics and which drunken starlets are wearing underwear than they know and care about the atrocities being committed every single day in our name by a government for which we need to take responsibility.
As loyal Americans, without regard to political partisanship -- as veterans, as teachers, as religious leaders, as working men and women, as students, as professionals, as businesspeople, as public servants, as retirees, as people of all ages, races, ethnic origins, sexual orientations, and faiths -- we are here to say to the Bush administration, to the majority of Congress, and to the mainstream media: “You have violated your solemn responsibilities. You have undermined our democracy, spat upon our Constitution, and engaged in outrageous, despicable acts. You have brought our nation to a point of immorality, inhumanity, and illegality of immense, tragic, unprecedented proportions.”
“But we will live up to our responsibilities as citizens, as brothers and sisters of those who have suffered as a result of the imperial bullying of the United States government, and as moral actors who must take a stand: And we will, and must, mean it when we say ‘We won’t take it any more.’”
If we want principled, courageous elected officials, we need to be principled, courageous, and tenacious ourselves. History has demonstrated that our elected officials are not the leaders – the leadership has to come from us. If we don’t insist, if we don’t persist, then we are not living up to our responsibilities as citizens in a democracy – and our responsibilities as moral human beings. If we remain silent, we signal to Congress and the Bush administration – and to candidates running for office – and to the world – that we support the status quo.
Silence is complicity. Only by standing up for what’s right and never letting down can we say we are doing our part.
Our government, on the basis of a campaign we now know was entirely fraudulent, attacked and militarily occupied a nation that posed no danger to the United States. Our government, acting in our name, has caused immense, unjustified death and destruction.
It all started five years ago, yet where have we, the American people, been? At this point, we are responsible. We get together once in a while at demonstrations and complain about Bush and Cheney, about Congress, and about the pathetic news media. We point fingers and yell a lot. Then most people politely go away until another demonstration a few months later.
How many people can honestly say they have spent as much time learning about and opposing the outrages of the Bush administration as they have spent watching sports or mindless television programs during the past five years? Escapist, time-sapping sports and insipid entertainment have indeed become the opiate of the masses.
Why is this country so sound asleep? Why do we abide what is happening to our nation, to our Constitution, to the cause of peace and international law and order? Why are we not doing all in our power to put an end to this madness?
We should be in the streets regularly and students should be raising hell on our campuses. We should be making it clear in every way possible that apologies or convoluted, disingenuous explanations just don’t cut it when presidential candidates and so many others voted to authorize George Bush and his neo-con buddies to send American men and women to attack and occupy Iraq.
Let’s awaken, and wake up the country by committing here and now to do all each of us can to take our nation back. Let them hear us across the country, as we ask others to join us: “We won’t take it any more!”
I implore you: Draw a line. Figure out exactly where your own moral breaking point is. How much will you put up with before you say “No more” and mean it?
I have drawn my line as a matter of simple personal morality: I cannot, and will not, support any candidate who has voted to fund the atrocities in Iraq. I cannot, and will not, support any candidate who will not commit to remove all US troops, as soon as possible, from Iraq. I cannot, and will not, support any candidate who has supported legislation that takes us one step closer to attacking Iran. I cannot, and will not, support any candidate who has not fought to stop the kidnapping, disappearances, and torture being carried on in our name.
If we expect our nation’s elected officials to take us seriously, let us send a powerful message they cannot misunderstand. Let them know we really do have our moral breaking point. Let them know we have drawn a bright line. Let them know they cannot take our support for granted – that, regardless of their party and regardless of other political considerations, they will not have our support if they cannot provide, and have not provided, principled leadership.
The people of this nation may have been far too quiet for five years, but let us pledge that we won’t let it go on one more day – that we will do all we can to put an end to the illegalities, the moral degradation, and the disintegration of our nation’s reputation in the world.
Let us be unified in drawing the line – in declaring that we do have a moral breaking point. Let us insist, together, in supporting our troops and in gratitude for the freedoms for which our veterans gave so much, that we bring our troops home from Iraq, that we return our government to a constitutional democracy, and that we commit to honoring the fundamental principles of human rights.
defense of our country, in defense of our Constitution, in defense of
our shared values as Americans – and as moral human beings – we declare
today that we will fight in every way possible to stop the insanity,
stop the continued military occupation of Iraq, and stop the moral
depravity reflected by the kidnapping, disappearing, and torture of
people around the world.

The False Religions
Peter Chamberlin on Manufacturing Deceptions for Perpetual War
The human race is held hostage to the desires and the plots of American war profiteers. There is no available cash to fund the eradication of human suffering, but there is an endless sea of cash flowing into the dead-end production of weapons, all in the name of "protecting democracy." A way must be found to interrupt the machinery of war, so that the long-neglected machinery of life can be rediscovered. How many tractors could be made from one tank?
"It is only a matter of
time before it becomes obvious to everyone that the war of the new world
order is a war against all religion. Religious belief and basic human
morality must be allowed to serve as the basis for the fight against
this war, because it is a war on life itself."

Afterall, Goethe said,
The Consciousness of a Planetization Citizen:
1) The wisdom to perceive the interconnectedness of all life
and living on the Earth;
2) The courage not to fear or deny difference; but to
respect and strive to understand people or persons of different cultures,
and to grow from encounters with them;
3) The compassion to maintain an imaginative empathy that reaches beyond one's immediate surroundings and extends to those suffering and hurting in distant places.
4) "What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured." (Islam: Hadith, Bukhari)
"Justice is itself the great standing policy of civil society; and any eminent departure from it, under any circumstances, lies under the suspicion of being no policy at all" – Edmund Burke
