Walking Through The Looking Glass

http://goo.gl/6BcFNg

When I started doing the research for my book, Public Private Relationships and the New Owners of the Means of Production, one of my first resources was the Maine Constitution by Marshall J Tinkle, recommended by the Maine Legislative Library. The first chapter of Mr Tinkle’s book tells of  a commonly held belief that no one reads the Maine Constitution, a statement which is evidently true even among the Maine Legislature. I once said to someone running for legislative office that the Maine Constitution prohibits the Legislature from chartering corporations by special acts of legislation. He asked me where that is said in the Maine Constitution. It is said in the section on Legislative Powers, a section which it is reasonable to expect one running for the Maine Legislature to know.

That commonly held belief is not entirely true. I have read the Maine Constitution and there are others in Maine who have also done so. Bangor Daily News journalist Mike Tipping ran a successful crowd sourcing project for his book by casting a small group of elderly Maine gentlemen who had formed an organization to further awareness of the Maine Constitution as domestic terrorists. Subsequently the Bangor Daily News published a more balanced story about the group but it is reasonable to hypothesis that second story would never have been published if it were not for the first.

If it is true that (almost) no one reads the Maine Constitution, it is just as true that no one reads the Maine statutes, sufficing with information about current bills reported by the Maine media.

If one is to read the Maine statutes, as I have done, independently and with no greater status than that of a Maine citizen, it is shocking what one finds going on behind totally transparent doors protected from public knowledge by what appears to be a curtain of a dark and occult force. How absurd, the reader might say but what else would explain it? It is as if there exists a building with a large glass display window on a public street but every single person walking by turns their head away from it and no one ever looks at what is behind the clear glass window. The people behind the glass window are as accustomed to the crowds that walk by their window always turning their heads away as they are to the sun rising in the east and setting in the west.




Then one day, one person walks by and looks in the window. That person says to the others passing by ”Look ! Turn your head! Look at what is going on behind that clear glass window !” but the passersby hear nothing and keep their heads turned away. No one will listen to a lone person breaking the rules of convention by turning her eyes toward the glass window and peering at what is inside. Who is that person to break the rules of convention? Who gave that person permission?

 And so that person writes a book describing what is going on behind the glass window and offers it free of charge to anyone to download and read but there are no takers. Who is this one lone individual who has broken the law of human nature by turning her head in the direction of the window to think she can alter an entrenched cultural tradition long since instituted.? Does she fancy herself a butterfly flapping its wings and altering the ever predictable order of things?

"Who are you ?" lone individual asks the crowd with their heads all turned in uniformity away from the clear glass window. That is who I am, says the individual. I am an individual wondering what happened to a state which was once known for its rugged individualism and a nation that stands alone against a sea of collectivist political philosophies seeking to engulf all of humanity into its ever expanding grid.

Break out of the grid of uniformity!, answers back the lone individual. Take a chance and download my book telling what I saw when I walked through the looking glass to see what is going on on the other side.

  1. I'm very excited to download and read your book. The public needs to know what our so-called leaders are up to. All it takes is awareness. There's no disputing the evidence and documentation. It's right there. Many acts/deeds have been openly admitted by the govt.,it's whistle-blowers,eye-witnesses, and employees or other participants. The people just don't know. We can't know something we've never been told. To see something it must first be shown to us. We need to show the world what they're up to so that we may take initiative to protect ourselves. It's right in front of our eyes! AGENDA 21 IS REAL!
    We need to open the eyes of the others and save ourselves!

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory .

Why are social impact investors trying so hard to defeat smaller shelters for the homeless?

  "Social Impact” developers in Portland, Maine seek to squelch a referendum for smaller shelters called for by qualified practitioners with concrete experience in the field. A large sign says Vote C to support the Homeless, small handmade sign next to it says Untrue! That sign is paid for by developers who want / Photo by Jess Falero In   the 1970s under Governor Longley , Maine became a centrally managed economy that expanded Maine’s wealth gap and merged, almost seamlessly, the public and private and the non-profit and for-profit economic sectors into one mutually beneficial wealth-concentration & distribution system. Currently, mutually benefitting factions are coming together once again in hopes of building a mega-shelter for the homeless in a Portland, Maine industrial development district. In addition to beds for the homeless, the project will include, dining, and locker facilities, as well as offices and an attached health clinic. The promotion  describes the facility

JECD Group Holds Master Plan Pow Wow for Boothbay Peninsula

The most honest statement to come out of the ringleaders of the Joint Economic Community Development Group in their first workshop program was "none of us are experts on economic development", which in my most humble opinion is evident in the fact that the JECD begins with the premise that economic development can be master minded by central management. The article in the Boothbay Register begins with this paragraph: The Joint Economic Development Committee master plan workshop on Thursday, Oct. 12 discuss findings from stakeholder interviews conducted early last month. The interviews centered around building an overall economic development strategy for Edgecomb, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport. Who are the stakeholders?  A search for articles in the Boothbay Register comes up short. Why is the public not told who the stakeholders are. Since the taxpayers of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor footed the bill for the JECD's consultants, why are they not the stakeh
