Motivation Monday VIII

Today’s Motivation Monday will only appeal to those who choose the path of love over the path of hate. To those who choose peace over violence. To those, like Martin Luther King believed, who believe that “love is a strong thing…that organizes itself…in direct action.” Today’s Motivation Monday features a debate between MLK and Malcolm X. Don’t judge Malcolm X ... Read More »

MLK: Race, Identity, & Image

In honor of yesterday’s Martin Luther King Day we present MLK’s appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press in 1965. School is in session as one lone preacher takes a mob of educated journalists and holds a clinic. Every one of the questions, including the questions of communist affiliation, is deflected with something other than point A to point B logic. ... Read More »

The Original Occupation

The Aboriginal or indigenous American was the first occupant of this country. As a child my parents did not insult my intelligence. They told me that the pilgrims had stolen the natives land. I dreamed about how to correct this injustice. There are no easy answers. Reservations have serious cross generational problems that don’t have any solutions. After I finished ... Read More »

Meditation and New Ways to Combat PTSD

When a person endures a psychological trauma such as kidnapping, a traumatic “act of God,” a violent act or has to commit a violent act, is raped, tortured, or has to go to war a kind of hyper awareness emerges. Soldiers returning from war find themselves unable to cope with constantly reliving events where they failed to save one of ... Read More »

Welcome Back

We can only hope when we reach 2013 and another article appears on SFTC (much like this one) about the bounty of enrichment we will experience in that year, it will be enshrined with victory for the Occupy Movement. Occupy is just one of our causes but our area of focus through this political climate. As realists we understand that ... Read More »

An Open Letter to the Winter Patriot

Mitch Green’s open letter appeared New Economic Perspectives on November 21st of last year. We believe it to be as true now as it was then. There are elements of Occupy that seem to be slowing down but the sluggish winter weather is only a test of fortitude. On the other end it produces hardened warrior activists that will prosper through ... Read More »

Motivation Monday VI

Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and ... Read More »

Victory & Abolition

The victory of the West Coast Port Shutdown is cold and calculated proof that the Occupy Movement, as a cumulative idea, has been shown as victorious and strong. Congratulations to everyone who participated even in the smallest way. The simplest act of observation and awareness makes this victory yours. The observer has reached across the great divide between mainstream and ... Read More »

Post Office Evicted

Did you know that the post office doesn’t run on tax dollars? It runs on stamps. The cost of stamps pays for the entirety of the USPS operations. The post office is guaranteed in the constitution. As of September’s cutbacks the USPS and analysts project a slow down in first class delivery service. The USPS’s position is unique because it does not receive federal subsidies ... Read More »

Happy Accidents

‎’The first deterrence, nuclear deterrence, is presently being superseded by the second deterrence: a type of deterrence based on what I call ‘the information bomb’ associated with the new weaponry of information and communications technologies. Thus, in the very near future, and I stress this important point, it will no longer be war that is the continuation of politics by ... Read More »
