Don’t Ask for Freedom – Live It!

6th May 2016

By Zen Gardner

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” – Albert Camus

That quote pretty much sums it up, at least on one level. What’s fundamentally dystopic is that humanity petitions others for their freedom, as if it’s something to be granted by someone else in a position of authority over them. Not only is that counter-intuitive at a very deep level, but it reinforces the very paradigm from which they are trying to escape.

It’s very much like putting the cart before the horse – and then the horse complains about it and asks those who did it to change the situation. There may be a time to straighten out a misunderstanding and stupid mistake by pointing out the obvious in a particular situation, but ultimately it’s up to the bridled human to have some “horse sense” and just say no to the situation and be its true independent self and not cooperate with being yoked into bondage and just break free from the bridle and reins…and dump the saddle as well.

Why “Alternative” Media is the New Mainstream

The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox… There will be no highlights on the eleven o’clock news… The revolution will not be right back after a message… The revolution will not go better with Coke… Because the revolution will not be televised. ~ Gil Scott Heron

Let’s face it, the mainstream media, like CNN, Fox News etc. are great at reporting on the surface understandings of surface issues; car accidents and plane crashes, shootings and robberies; as well as reinforcing why our latest foreign war is good/necessary/the only way to peace and security. But if you really want to investigate and comprehend what is actually going on in the world, and why, you have to go past the mainstream.

Just look at the countless global events being reported by the underground news and compare it to the selective, politically-biased fear-fare of the mainstream; there is little journalistic integrity on display in the mainstream media, just the regurgitation of B.S. And lots of it. Even the surface events reported in the mainstream are often filtered, distorted and even blatantly constructed by media corporations that conceal their corporate and political alliances behind the guise of “news”.

Why Education Must Come Back to Nature

3rd May 2016

By Will Stanton

Guest writer for Wake Up World

“Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world, we can’t expect them to help protect and care for it.” – David Suzuki

Humanity has lost its connection with the Earth. As a species, we too easily distance ourselves from the war being waged on the environment. Most of us are opposed to the destruction of the Amazon rainforest and the oil pollution in our oceans, yet we continue to let it all happen. We care, but we don’t care enough to put a stop to all the madness. Why? Because we have lost touch with nature. Sadly, we do not feel the planet’s hurt. Her cries of protest are falling on deaf ears. For the most part, we have become anaesthetised by modern society and the trappings of economic pragmatism.

Don’t Ask, Just Plant — Taking Back Our Food Sovereignty with Guerrilla Gardening

1st May 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

During both world wars, Victory Gardens were a staple throughout the United States, found everywhere from private residences to public lands and even the front lawns of city hall. Their purpose was simple: to reduce pressure from the public food supply during times of war. Victory Gardens also carried an unexpected perk, they helped boost morale during uncertain times by empowering gardeners through their contribution of labor and production of sorely needed fresh fruits and vegetables. Incredibly, these seemingly humble vegetable patches produced a staggering 41% of all fruits and vegetables consumed by the nation.

Jump to the present day and our system of food production would be all but unrecognizable to Victory Garden veterans. Instead of food self-sufficiency, we have homeowners persecuted for growing produce on their own property and children who think food comes packaged from the supermarket. Small farms are going bankrupt and being assimilated into industrial corporate farming operations. And when individuals push back against the hijacking of our food supply, they are met with fierce opposition, often stemming from local government.

Are You a Conspiracy Theorist? Or a Coincidence Theorist?

1st May 2016

By Andy Whiteley

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Are you a conspiracy theorist? Or a coincidence theorist? Our world is a mess – but is it by intentional design, or random happenstance?

We all know our world has gone mad, and many of us shake our heads wondering how we got here. Ineffective government, endless resource wars, failing economic and education systems, planetary degradation; very little about our current global circumstances reflects our hopes and dreams and goals; our shared wants for peace, for justice, for technological progress that supports not destroys our planet. It does not reflect our innermost nature, which yearns for peace and abundance. And yet, no matter what we do, no matter who we vote for or what they promise to do, or how many of us also feel humanity is on a slippery slope to its own demise, for some reason, we (collectively) keep marching boldly on in the wrong direction.

Strangely, many even go as far as questioning the sanity of those who believe all this is not by accident but by design, and dismiss “conspiracy theorists” as lunatics and uncritical thinkers. If that sounds like you – if you’ve used the phrase “conspiracy theorist” as a derogatory term – open your mind and consider what I’m about to say, if only for the 3 minutes as it takes to read it.

Are You Giving Away Your Power? – Politics, Sovereignty and Personal Embodiment

30th April 2016

By Bernhard Guenther

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

It has been a while since I wrote anything political, mostly for the reason that I’m not a statist, I don’t believe in government (or any other authority ruling/governing me), nor in national identification, and frankly don’t care much for politics. Readers of my blog know that we are dealing with far deeper issues that most people are not aware of and which go way beyond poly-tics, which is really a distraction from what is truly happening to humanity, especially in this day and age.

I have written several articles about the illusory political circus before: Voting, Cognitive Dissonance and Fear of the Unknown (2012), The Illusion of Choice (2010) – and in 2008, I exposed Obama for the corporate puppet that he is (resulting in vicious attacks against me by Liberals and Democrats, some of whom later saw through the deception as well), and the illusion that there is choice through voting (ie. Obama was “selected” to win way before any votes were cast).

However, lately I’m having a strange déjà vu seeing all the support and hype around Bernie Sanders, another presidential candidate who portrays the image of “hope”. Where did I hear that before?

The Power Below The Surface – You Are So Much More Than You Can Imagine

29th April 2016

By Max Igan

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

What if we were powerful beyond measure? What if we were each individually capable of the most amazing things and collectively, to possess a creative potential so vast and wondrous that it cannot even be measured by any known standards? And what if our true potential had been purposely hidden from us and an enormous amount of effort had been undertaken to keep it that way?

People are seeing the truth of these statements now and they are beginning to feel the great potential that lies dormant inside them. That is a very positive thing and even though all are not yet awakened, most people now know, somewhere in the back of their minds that something is terribly wrong with the world today. People are beginning to feel again, and what they are feeling is that they are something more than they have been taught to believe they are and that there is something higher, more profound going on here. They often just cannot seem to put their finger on what it is that troubles them — but they know something is not right and the awareness and unease of it is there, always like a thorn or splinter, or a leaky faucet dripping somewhere in the back of their minds. People are beginning to realise that they are slaves. But how? How did it happen? How do we identify the prison? And how do we fix it?

Satanic Ritual Abuse: It’s Real, But It Can Be Healed

28th April 2016

By Makia Freeman

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Satanic ritual abuse is a stark reality for some children who are born into Illuminati bloodline families, or military families, or families with connections to mind control, or families with connections to the New World Order manipulators running the world today. Satanic ritual abuse seems to run in families, with each generation passing it along to the next. (Psychologists have known for a long time that every perpetrator is also a victim; what makes someone into a purveyor of aggression or violence is normally a deep wounding or trauma they experienced in the past.) Satanic ritual abuse is also carried out against children who are kidnapped, then molded into slaves through the trauma of the abuse.

As sad and horrific as this subject is, it is central to an understanding of the worldwide conspiracy and the New World Order. What binds these criminal manipulators together is not race, religion or family ties, but an adherence to Satanism, a willingness to invoke dark forces in ritual and to let those dark forces control their thoughts and actions – which results in all the pedophilia, war, manipulation and deception we see around us.

Life With No Government

27th April 2016

By Ken Bartle

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Today’s mindset cannot see past the security, comforts, and benefits of government, despite its citizens being bound into a life of slavery. Man strives for freedom, but has not yet discovered a political system without political rule.

A representative body acting as public guardian of natural law, can answer people’s protection, security and natural justice, without political rule, provided that it cannot ever be usurped and transformed into government. Kritarchy and Natural Law offer the method.

No government? Oh yes!

Why GMOs Are NOT the Future of Food

27th April 2016

By Raluca Schachter

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Throughout our existence as humans, our genes have shown they are highly adaptable to the available food supply and a wide variety of diets. Over time, our genes gradually adapted to new ways of eating and we continued to thrive. But all these “new” foods were whole foods, unprocessed, unaltered, and found in nature.

So, how does this adaptation relate to the new era of genetically modified foods, made in the laboratory?

Weathering the Energetic Storm, Inside and Out

26th April 2016

By Christina Lavers

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

There have always been people sensitive to the subtle energies that permeate this reality. In the Western world however, the last few centuries have seen an abandonment of esoteric beliefs in favour of reason. Since that time, there has been a propensity to disparage anything that couldn’t be accurately documented and measured. Most people with the enigmatic faculty of energy sensitivity learned to keep their true natures hidden, especially during the witch-hunting times, when fear of the unknown fuelled a holocaust against practitioners of magic (which is just another way of saying energy workers). Even when conditions weren’t quite as dire, admitting to being tuned in to an aspect of reality to which most were oblivious could set a person up to be ostracised and ridiculed by those who fit comfortably into the mainstream.

The last few decades, however, have seen a considerable shift in this area – the growing number of us who can feel the energies know that they are escalating and are affecting everything they touch. What was once operating as a subtle current in the background is rapidly becoming an electrifying torrent of transformation.

The Zero-Waste Revolution: A New Wave of Eco-Conscious Living

24th April 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted worldwide each year. It’s time to change our habits.

Zero-waste is the latest trend among eco-friendly and sustainable-living circles — and it’s taking the world by storm. From legislation in France forbidding supermarkets from throwing away unsold food to completely waste-free stores, as well as a restaurant owner who installed a fridge laden with uneaten food on the street to feed the needy, concerned individuals are taking a hard look at our oftentimes excessive and wasteful habits, and finding creative and innovative ways to close the loop.

“Tree of Goodness” in Southern India

Minu Pauline owns Pappadavada restaurant in Kochi, southern India. The 28-year-old proprietor was upset that her establishment was throwing away food each day when many within the community were going hungry. Then inspiration struck after watching a woman digging through the restaurant’s rubbish bags for food late one night…
