Welcome to over 88 files (averaging over 88 colourful K'z) worth of BLABS = Bottom Line Aphoristically Ballistic Solutions meaning: Solutions which break uncivilly polarizing centralizations up or open, wether institutionally animated or simply, inertly dormant yet animatable.

Switch to most main files at this site via the Index (includes brief descriptions to the main features) or (via appetizing one or two line characterizations of their segments which vary in size from a few lines to a page or two)from here: /table_of_contents.htm.

Half of this site was created/gestating during the 80ties (links thereto are in the table of contents for instance) and the rest since then (latest files at tops of all content files). Last corrections/updates and add ontos: late july 99
(only partly hypered) link files at this site are commendablinklist.htm and new_links and recent_links.htm and (almost fully hypered) Balkan sites, lists and (re)commentces  and fifth_linklist.htm
The headings, dates, subjects, adressee and senders when and if provided are marked in this (light yellow) colour in this file. About the other colours in this file: They don't only change whenever a different citee/writer/speaker is next. The following 2 sets of remarks were valid when and while I had all my subscribed list selections criss-crossing in the same files but now that I seperated them, no one body carries one colour throughout a file consistently (and neither do I)  and so the following preminders no longer apply: throughout the first half of this file all my writs, responses and provocations are in this colour; in the second half they are in dark grey. my sparring partners are given others like so: firstCircle (chavEZ) Louis Proyect defends this colour here. Texts written by meself are white in the first quarter of this file. The second quarter shows them off in this colour. The third quarter has magenta following the winding ways of my key board compositions (unlike the paper initiated ones in the first half of my page). The final quarter colour for my keystrokes is this one.

Dear(born) Ish, (I don´t remember what prompted this thing) but it is a recommedation of David Yarrow the dowser´s work: Reminds me of David Yarrow, a man worth checking out.       1) he is one of the world's most vocal advocates of the use of fresh, paramagnetic gravel dust, rock powder (mineral flour) to regenerate the chain of beings by feeding the bottom end of it; the main theme at my site  (by the way, in case you hadn't noticed)    2) he wrote a book called the dragon and the ice castle, an account of his one man crusade against polluters and mall builders during the course of which he learned a whole lot about Indian mounds and sacred places.                   3) he is the only one who got me in touch (not more than a day's visit really) with people living on a rez.        4) he had a program to get homeless out of towns (NYC mostly) onto land (upstate on a farm owned/operated by a black team) and learning some selfsufficiency tricks of a provisionary and less of a scavenging nature. The authorities wouldn't move their allowances at that time and the scheme folded. He also did a lot of work on power leakages. Did I say he was a dowser? He is.             David Yarrow's work can be found on Dan Winter's homepage (http://www.danwinter.com) or via my link list (green section, just use the 'find in page' function)

The following post (about the term: "savage") started quite a chain reaction; one of the welcome distractions from the mascot issue which, to me at least wasn´t hitting very close to home   At 09:26 AM 2/2/99 +0100, you  (Helmut Heller) wrote: I have a request directed to UNEP. Everyone is asked for  comments, ammendments and support.  SAVE THE LAST SAVAGES: Due to heavy destruction of their biosphere there are only very few non-civilised tribal peoples left on earth, who are living as hunters-and gatherers. Their total extinction is a matter of only a few years under the ungoing destruction. The rest of the world will loose invaluable treasure of human knowledge and wisdom,  how to live in harmony with surrounding nature.  FPCN appeals to the UNEP          1. to invite traditionalist representatives among the last non-civilized peoples and last hunter and gatherer societies and hear their complaints.        2. to enable FPCN to mediate  and join the meeting           3. to lauch a protection program for the last non-civilised societies under the consultancy of FPCN          4. to support FPCN in their campaign against legal and illegal logging on tribal land of hunter and gatherer societies. >> Hartmut Heller, Friends of Peoples Close to Nature  h.heller@gmx.net,  www.fpcn-global.org  The 'Friends of Peoples Close to Nature' is a network of individuals and groups concerned with the survival of savage tribal peoples, in particular hunter-gatherers.

Are you just looking for an argument or seriously making the mistake of seeing smoke where there isn't any fire? From what I gather the FPCN are civilized (I mean native) peoples emissaries and (privileged) public opinion impacters  who are concerned, sympathize and stand with hunter-gatherers (even though not themselves hunter-gatherers by birth), since able to overcome the (surely, as in each of us, slumbering) inclination and transform the ability to either humiliate, kill or adopt our enemies (something the FBI is indeed not to scrupulous about). Potentiated vices are uglier...fact of life.       >please explain. hoping the etymologists on the list will take a stab at this one too. or will club membership privileges be in effect here?             que la ch*ngada!   eZ              It pains me to see that you are troubled by (however much warranted) suspicions. I am ashamed for all the bad experiences you suffered from, imposed by people with fair skin. That said, have I a right to continue?           You are obviously sharp enough to get the meaning of such an elegant name in focus (you are sharp enough to see how it can be misinterpreted); I wish you could be grateful for the preciously little living dripdrops in commercial culture kindred's bucket who put the savages and primitives on a pedestal, sort of in the same way some (though few) parents still take a religious, non interfering, protecting interest in their offspring.             Allow a child to play at a precipice but be ready to grab (oops maybe a bad word)...bad analogy perhaps too....better compare it with poacher (FBI) prosecution and mobilizing public opinion back amongst our own kind.            There are whites inspired by Indian rough and ready ways; a healthy dose of death for each participant in the multispecial universe so none dominate and none are excluded. This never hurt no-one kind more than others and gives all life forms a change  to contribute to a perfect mix; as in love making; stopping short of a certain type of development makes one religious and humble, one's life wonderful. I am serious about this use and deployment of and respect for death.....especially if taken in the multiplicitous sense of knocking rock, which, cause already asleep, wakes; as much as such a knock, when hard enough, would send most beings the other way on the same scaley snake tale.

Stevens wrote: snip..........the indigenous must remain static, pure, and marginal for all time.  The greatest insult is that this idea devalues every other indigenous community by labelling them as failed communities that have forever lost their struggle to regain or strengthen their polities and cultures, that they are unworthy of support, and that, in essence, its all *their* fault and has nothing to do with historic or contemporary power relations.        >These are the crimes that ideas like "the savage" perpetuate, and until we change those ideas and shift the baggage that they carry, such words are suspect and tainted, and they only hinder the progress of indigenous struggles.   Slan,     John Stevens             Cornell University            poetpiet writes: Well, I guess I am learning slowly, so bear with me.

Now all of a sudden I hear defenses here and earlier from Craven (but he has an excuse, Jewish blood) for changing updating and improving native cultures!!!!! Is my head spinning with this understanding beginning!! let me add a bit here which stems from reading the encounter between Craven and a Pen_ller who is probably booted of that lists though not as fast as I was.

Jim's mother is of Blackfoot descent, but was adopted as an infant by Jews. His mother only learned about her heritage when she was in her late teens, as her own mother was on her death bed. She then began thinking of herself as a Blackfoot, but never lost touch with the Reform Judaism values her parents had taught to her. Her parents were also leftists and the last thing in the world they were interested in was "Jewish blood." She interpreted this in such a manner as to emphasize genuine indigenous values, as opposed to the sort of BIA-imposed values that had disoriented so many Indians. Genuine indigenous values include respect for mother earth, solidarity with peoples of all colors, belief in the creator, etc. Indians who sell out their people, so as to get some crumbs from oil companies or casinos are not true Indians. I believe that Jim is up in Canada taking part in the Blackfoot tribunal on residential schools, so I am taking this liberty to clarify matters.                Bouter and Heller's obsession with "purity" has nothing to do with progressive politics. Pure Indians or pure Aryans is a meaningless concept. Although nobody on this mailing list takes them seriously, it is important to confront their backward ideas since they form the basis for lots of problems that confront indigenous struggles. For example, the long-simmering dispute between Hopis and Navajos can only be resolved by united action against Peabody Coal. One of the things that has hindered such united action is distrust of the motives of a people from a different tribe. One of the great breakthroughs of the American Indian Movement is that it conceived of an American Indian nation that transcended all of  he subnationalities. The notion of millions of Indians in Canada and the United States coming together to fight for common goals must have thrown Washington into a frenzy in the early 70s. That is the only explanation for the crackdown on AIM. Although it was weakened by police attacks, its powerful vision remains.                   Louis Proyect
(http://www.panix.com/~lnp3/marxism.html)                     well, I don't feel the need to reciprocate here, I will continue to be grateful to Jim Craven for posting bibliographies through his Progressive Economist slot and continue reading stuff there.             As far as blood goes, it crawls where it can't go. That's a Dutch saying. In my eyes (jewish blue) it don't matter a bit wether we are talking habits, routines, mores or blood since these things overlap a lot and leap over more (let's just stop short of spilling it and poisoning it so much). Jim's hurtfilled past pains me too when he is careful to point to the nonbias in his mom's judgement but neglects to mention that in native america the eagle is at least as important in various ways as it once was in Germany. Eagles and bears are conspicuously absent there now. So don't give me no whiney shit about suffering anymore OK? Thanks. Let me end on a pleasant note: At the first australian rainbow gathering I one time and once only in total felt inspired to bawl out a poem (it must have been the one about guitars in my green chapter) there weren't very many people in the circle yet (unlike at american gatherings where politics is an ongoing allday affair peaking around prediner time) then for some reason i looked up and straight above me, very small, was the eagle circling. For the last 5 years, despite difficulties hitchhiking the memories of gatherings have helped me remain steadfast in my resolve not to own a car. goddess speed to yall your secretion reagent of the sun                On Tue, 2 Feb 1999 12:04:51    James Michael Craven wrote: >Hi Louis, Thanks for the note and the comments--all of which are true. The only times I have heard the term "Jewish blood" is either from anti-Semites and neo-nazis or from some Jews of the persuasion and  psychotic temperament of Meir Kahane. This guy is in my opinion an  idiot at a minimum and his tangental and disjointed writings suggest  to me someone suffering severe mental illness.  If my father were Jewish, from a Jewish mother, I would have "Jewish blood" but not be a Jew with out conversion. Blood does not automatically determine values or orientation as evidenced by, for example, some Blackfoot with Blackfoot "blood" who are betraying the  Nation. Someone who writes what this guy writes is simply not worth  one more minute of time except to use him to expose the pathology and  racism evident in so many of his ilk.
>>My mother, who was indeed Blackfoot (Northern Peigan and Kainai) of  the Big Bear Clan, stayed close to Reform Judaism all her life. Blood  was not the sole determinant of her positions or values as it is so  in my own case. Blood is by accident or design of the Creator--take  your pick--the question is what one does with that "blood quantum" whatever it is. In my case, as my father was not Blackfoot, I am as  much non-Blackfoot as Blackfoot--and vice-versa--by blood, however, I  choose to live and struggle as a Blackfoot which does not imply in  any way, disdain or contempt for non-Blackfoot with the exception of  those types already noted. I have as much contempt for sell-out  Indians as racist non-Indians by the way. Louis, I'll be on my way Thursday for the Tribunal in Alberta.

The early word I had to go on about warriornet was: 't is dominated by NAs and it has taken on a negative instead of the positive meaning it could have had (so far anyway) whereas the 'solidarity with and respect for all peoples has lost any other than a lipservice one. 'T is pitiful that list members take certain typifications which the native peoples they apply to, themselves own up to and carry with pride and (I would at least fancy) discerning preference, all too personal and offense to. Apparantly FPCN is the pioneer here when it comes to presenting a palette of problems from around the world. Neither Unpo (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation; http://www.unpo.org ((Two job opportunities at the UNPO offices in the Hague. 1.Regional Desk Officer Unpaid position  2.Personnel Officer Volunteer position))  nor NCIV Dutch centre for indiginous peoples (inheemse volkeren) are burning their fingers here. All the more reason I would expect, for filling out the undeniably privileged positions and parts played by us here pioneers, with bits and pieces from beyond our personal problems, no matter how big and insurmountable either of them are (I try cause mine are and this work relieves me from a pettily personal focus). I'm not without a romantic streak (though moderately modern in the Joycean sense) and so however much I feel like a snowflake caught avalanching amongst kindred tumblers I know I can communicate all the way back to those who know about conditions at the cradle of the movement and resisted the temptation to jump in, iow understood its beginning, well enough to distill lessons from them. The chinese see their ancestors and children in clouds drifting overhead and similar attitudes towards weather and water are almost universal (don't underestimate choice chavez specially not your own).                  As for certified oppression being the entree criterion to speak up; us eurocomplexed and eurocentered peoples (derivatives of these terms are as abused, inaccurate, abusing and hurtful as the ones in question here I feel) do qualify plenty methinks. The first millenium after christ was one big bad time for peaceful co-existentials. 1000-1400 saw the bloom of culture due to the attrition, bleeding to death (literally) and absence of absentee lords busily pursuing roman imperial power games. The monopolies of violence mutually exhausted, looked for internal support and found it in exchange for access to land, The farmers payed minimal fees to the lords who vyed for their attention and wooed 'm into their jurisdiction with favorable benefits, truly serving their people. After some 400 years of that their strenght and therewith their arrogance was back up to lead Europe into the dark Ages. You guys on Turtle Island had another couple of blissfully federated and civilized centuries to go at that point....well most of you, slavery was not all together absent and unknown was it now? Let's look beyond ourselves on this eminently suitable mediyum fer christalmightily crumbling sake! If you didn't understand me thus/this far and/or took offense, don't continue reading, I'm not out to provoke anyone.                     At the same time I think it needs to be understood that the terminology I see nothing wrong with will continue to include, as it has for a long while in most ethnography I respect (Hell, Craven himself got me to read Weatherford's Savages and civilization ((implying they are one and the same often enough)) by praising the book highly), any and all therms used as self descriptive, selfdesignative and self profilating ones. For that matter I fer one, wouldn't even object to self-imposed cannibalism as long as the neighbouring bands, allies, foes and tribes felt happy with, not victimized by and mutually commited to it.                I stand with Heller on the same grounds, namely, that more peoples than you seem to realize are proud to be called and known as savages and primitives, they want to be left alone, feel and think they should, but what's more know they can be. Even and/or especially when they realize they have very mobile sympathizers making efforts on their behalf at strategic locations and stations somewhere within the avalanching frozen crystals.          Being de- or enveloped is a matter of perspective.           Self indulgence taking the form of one's subjects procreation finds strange bedfellows, not to say very strange successions and successes.

hack pack example and later amendment (about the A´dam public terminal access): The public library in A'dam had a terminal with experimental, relatively high speed connections. It was sabotaged very quickly. Puberty brings with it the prowess establishing urges to destroy things, be faster than the rest, etc....fact of life.           Fathers who don't take their teenagers on an educational exhaustion course (the front line, a vertical one that will leave their sweat and signature to lots of good for a long time to come), will be severely fined.  specs at my site: Index.htm (find the file with the red background)          Ps while getting this file into shape (first editing since 2 months; I kinda relish it!!!): that same terminal described above is back with a vengeance: it is the best loaded engine for miles around, use is free but limited to half an hour a day per person when and if they cue. It is not reservable except by the user´s own consensus process. Which has led to some interesting encounters and squarings already. It is the only machine with the sort of editing power I need and is on call constantly if no others users claim it. Post script: It is now the 16th of july and the mensa with the geodesic pyramid design, i o w: regular bucky architecture is closed and so me and my crazy dinner partner (the man who reads out loud all day and is one of the many persons in Amsterdan set and hell bent on finding and eventually ending believing in their own excuses for not trying, persevering, holding and enjoying a regular job like all the rest of our countrymen do) go to the economy/ chemistry/ physics  housing part of Town. I hadn't been a long time and they completely renovated (in the style of my guest appearance intro appropriately enough; all rust colours) including adding 5 internet terminals with a house made programmature which is so rickety that one cannot reach any site at Geocities and or Tripod (and perhaps more such providers) without the popup allowing no longer a glimpse than 2-3 seconds in duration of the page one seeks (this may have something to do with the size of documents, dunno) . This disease is one which the Public library's 11 new terminals have also. I wrote the system management a note but they are as little helpful as say: Nedstat. I'm getting the referral numbers straight so that can't be what stops it in future if it ever gets going that is.

That man is a gem and a must read. I have always regretted Beckerath's not so much uncritical but certainly unspecific attitude regarding slavery. He insisted on mutual and voluntary if not voluntarizing engagements. I suppose he just didn't like to dwell on the hurt, he wasn't one of those 'bodyelectronic(s.org)' people who's motto is: find the pain and push, all the while claiming miracles will happen.   I do too but in a much more modestly realistic way and prefer to put the pressure on less animated crystalizations only to make 'm more so and to raise my favorite standard of values: a regional, up, running and rizing rate of photosynthesis.                 regards    piet

good thing the man hasn't the manpower (he wishes) to command, we 'd be meeting in some gulag instead of here in friendly but frigid cyberspace; all the best anyway and if you want more of the same (proyect's indignities with 'subjects'; something he seems to find yukkie anyway; he's an oddball jew alright, heroic as hell and yet....he grew up in a fruitshop; that's where he got his flair and spunk I'm sure) let me know; I can supply a 100K of recent shit, meanwhile there's always: progressive_ecoknowmusts.htm

An unready draft on jesus and jews (once again): One of the topics I would like to get rolling, a subject I feel needs broaching in the near future concern my  (sorry about all the I'z and my'z) questions and puzzlement over the sympathy NA have with Jews; OK, they are both prosecuted and genocidally asaulted and OK, Jews were not averse to a little sacrifice for the greater good, but they beat their neighbours and went exploring (not to put too fine a point on it) like no NA would ever dream of doing, having no experience with over grazing and numerous offspring as a reward and goal almost in itself. No qualities and aspects I imagine the NAs want to emulate and identify with. Their eye for detail is another matter.          Jesus was a rage; infectious as only the most solid repute and a square wave can be. He indeed carried man's burden, exuded and transmitted this awareness zipped and snappy. A consciousness too much for most but not easily got rid of with or without him once besthrowed upon the world. The crossing sticks bundled in the middle or at one end form a brush; tied together at their ends all manner of shapes you may set to rub when spinning.           Women are fair fighters, they play (piggybank to the contents of) his balls not the man. Men can fight fair too, if they play the principle not the person or single species singled out.              An addition to my Jewish inversion series which started with the feeling that Noah stands for hordes and strings of generation taking woodchopping and shipping very seriously, thereby causing rather than escaping floods.       Perhaps they weren't escaping slaves and/or slavery but abandoned some used up ones including their literally sucked dry territory for more succulent ones . I like arguments for exterritorial allegiance immensely too though and it is becoming the hype of the 3rd millenium so I am not alone in that. Either way massifyers along the old non-sustainable nomadic (curse)lines is a worry.             Peace and trade vs war and nomadics; private property and absentee ownership are like milk teeth in the mechanorganic body of free trade
