The State Secrets Privilege being used by the Bush Administration to cover up its' crimes is a relic of the British Monarchy that was borrowed from the Duncan law during the 'cold war' for one specific case. Shall I tell you more about 'the Crown?' I mean the real "Crown?"
Well, maybe another time. Check out the following to understand what the State Secrets Privilege is doing in the hands of the illigitimate Bush Administration. Bush is not really our governments president nor is he president of the American people. Him and his phoney court will learn, in time, the power of the Hand that feeds them and what it means to bite it!

You're the BEST! What a great link! It (; to live a life worthy of living, isn't anymore complicated than what the Stateless Society tells us! All it takes -once we managed to push the false back into its rightful home of Oblivion- is to "revere Life, love Liberty, celebrate Kindness, Peace & Harmony." Those who understand this are the most likely ones to reach that Promised Land of Milk & Honey -as was prophesied "some time ago"!... : )))
" This Gathering of the peoples of all nations, races, and tongues - living independently and together as One Humanity - in truth and harmony as one race, and speaking the one language of the heart - is a possible dream. It can be made by an evolutionary leap in consciousness - from the mind of greed to the heart of love.
Only a free people - free of the intrinsic violence of the State - can accomplish this evolution. If it is to be, it is up to us - only we ourselves can save ourselves from extinction. What is the ultimate value of a person’s life? This is our question. The answer is in whether we live by heart of love or mind of greed. The choice is whether we live by love, or die as a failed evolutionary experiment.
We proclaim our right to liberty. We write against oblivion. That we may live. And you. And all of us. We shall be free.
Oppression and exploitation cannot exist without public acquiescence. We refuse to finance murder. We shall be free, that love and reason may prevail."
7 Nov 2007 @ 21:39 by vaxen : Thanks A-d...
for your comment and most of all for being you. We are free! There is nothing that state sanctioned murderers can do to us anymore. The old game of exploitation, murder and rapacious profit, for a few, is over!
Let the new game of freedom, real freedom, begin. Freedom needs no 'license' to be. Freedom is the ultimate morality and the ultimate ethic. ;)

Here's a guy, Jeff Knaebel, who walks his Talk -fully!... like many other People of GOOD Character have done -and do. No, I'm not there -yet, maself, but I truly feel the yearning... My Being oscillates back & forth between the two Polarities of our Earth Existence: To find The Divine -and eventually find our way back to the State of Mind where we have overcome the last enemy: death- and thus become Eternally living Cosmic Beings again -or to remain ( in ) the Secular, where death is still not learned to be overcome (while still in our living flesh,) and thus die, because that is the way of Universe: "You either join Life fully -or you die -and then try again later!...
This is not to say that even Jeff's Path has come that point-or will- but he is definitely much farther in the right direction than almost all rest of Humanity. And indeed as psychically entwined as Humans are today in to each other('s lives) it seems only logic to me, that this Cosmic Endeavour of ours will require a common effort! But, believe me; this IS the next Big Step /INSIGHT Humankind will have very soon!
Hugs to u All/// A-d
The following text is from: http://freeofstate.org/new/?page_id=2
" With words we knock at the door of truth
We are being called to live another way.
We write to find the way.
We ask, what is the ultimate value of a person’s life?
This is our question.
We write against oblivion.
That we may live. And you. And all of us.
Words ask questions. Answers are in the heart.
The path is made by walking."
"I am sending a voice, Great Spirit, forgetting nothing you have made, the stars of the Universe, and the grasses of earth." ~ Nicholas Black Elk
"We are sending a voice
speaking truth to power
We shall be free
In a truthful manner we speak
We shall be free
in a good way we speak
We shall be free"
"We consider ourselves to be everyone and nobody. We are all for one and one for all. We are anyone who longs for Liberty, Peace, Harmony and Reason. We are nobody in charge, nobody superior, and no institutional authority of any man over another. We strive to work together, yet separately, and in agreement.
We believe the institutionalized structurally violent system of the Corporate Warfare State must be abandoned and allowed to die a peaceful death. We hold the entire conception of the Corporation and the State to be morally invalid – that “legally mandated” limited liability and sovereign immunity, which enable men to act without accountability and responsibility – are the roots of a system which promotes the limitless play of greed and destruction without concern for the fate of future generations, who will inherit a wasted earth.
We are questing into unknown territory with this website. We hope to have contributors who advance their ideas with full open attribution of authorship. We are individual beings, working together in voluntary cooperation for our liberty and the survival of our species. We pledge allegiance to no State, no flag, no government, and no “ism.” We aim to be free, to think for ourselves, and to act on our own responsibility.
From simple observation and common sense, we discern clearly that allegiance to a State is tantamount to allegiance to murder, since States are controlled by powerful individuals and corporate interests who will stoop to any level of depraved violence to achieve their goals of power and greed. We intend to confront, and not to deny, the reality of conditions created by the money power to which we have acquiesced.
We ask simple and basic questions of ourselves and the State. Then we try to guide our affairs and loyalties according to the answers. Am I truthful? Do I agress against others and murder those who pose no threat to me? Do I finance others to carry out these aggressive acts? Is the State truthful? Does the State murder? Does it torture and degrade? Do I finance the State? If I don’t stop financing the killing, who will?
We pledge allegiance to that One Humanity of which we are a particle. Our allegiance is to a life of love and reason, kindness and peace, harmony and reverence for all life. By this pledge we proclaim ourselves to be individual moral sovereigns, neither bound to nor beneath any man or “constituted authority.” We perceive that we are facing a starkly simple choice: evolve to a higher level of consciousness, or become extinct.
The Editor and initial author posting to this site is Jeff Knaebel. He is an American-born expatriate who has been living since 1995 in self-imposed exile in India. Trained at Cornell University and the Colorado School of Mines, he formerly practiced as a mining engineer-entrepreneur-bush pilot in Alaska and Canada. Faced with immediate military conscription in his youth, he applied to US Navy Officer Candidate School, was commissioned and subsequently served as a Company Commander of US Navy Seabees in Vietnam during that war.
Former professional memberships include American Institute of Mining Engineers; Canadian Institute of Mining & Metallurgical Engineers; Society of Economic Geologists; American Institute of Professional Geologists; New York Academy of Science; Geological Association of Canada; American Geophysical Union; Northwest Mining Association (officer); Alaska Miners Association (officer); Tau Beta Pi; Sigma Gamma Epsilon.
He sees the cycle of war, destruction and wanton waste propagated by the Ameican Imperium as impossible to end by political means. His working hypothesis is that it can end only through the decisions of sovereign individuals - to refuse financial and moral support, to engage in non-cooperation, and to withdraw from participation in a system-structure based upon violence.
He has for many years refused to pay taxes in finance of State-sponsored murder and mindless destruction. In order to avoid harassment and the overhanging threat of jail, he finally sold everything, closed shop, and become an exile – a man without a country. He owns no dwelling, nor vehicle, nor telephone, nor credit card, nor driving license, nor social security, nor any insurance, nor pension. He participates in no government “welfare” program.
He believes that the right to life and liberty demands respect for the lives of others. This means the right of refusal to finance by taxes the heinous crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Corporate Warfare State.
In the not-distant future, his citizenship-identification documents will expire. These are his “Permission-to-Live” documents, by which he is made a slave, for without freedom of movement, a man cannot earn the livlihood necessary to support life. Thus, his right to life has been usurped by the State, and he lives at its pleasure only.
It is at this intersection of State tyranny with his individual personal situation that he plans to challenge the State for his right to self-ownership, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in a manner that harms no other. It seems obvious to him that the right of self-ownership requires the free and clear right to the whole product of his own labor. This means that any form of coercive taxation denies him the right of self-ownership, in effect impeding his right to life itself.
It has taken too long to de-condition the mind of State school system brainwash and political perception management. He strives to promulgate the ideals of Mohandas Gandhi, Leo Tolstoy and Henry David Thoreau, rotated and adjusted to fit current conditions. He experiences the greatest challenge as being extrication from the system-structure-machine while yet maintaining a life of modest amenities. He is learning the freedom of (almost) nothing left to lose.
He has resolved not to support, finance, or obey the organized crime which is the State. He has set himself upon a journey to live this question: is humanity capable of allowing a man to live free and whole?
He strives to be able to know in his own heart - at the approach of death - that he had put it all on the line for the truth as he saw it. And that he had learnt not to compromise with Power that murders human beings."
"I add my breath to your breath
that our days may be long on the earth
that the days of our people may be long
that we may be one person
May our Mother bless you with life
May we finish our roads together".

Thanks for that, A-d. See, we are not alone and soon, so very much sooner than later, the Corporate Warfare State will be just a horrible memory yet my soul quakes at the needless loss of life that our generations will suffer in order to achieve the freedom which is our birthright!
Very inspiring, eh? I hope you write to Jeff and let him know that we are with him in spirit. I think each one of us needs to know that our words and actions are being heard and felt in this old worlds frames...that we are not alone in these 'end times' days.
9 Nov 2007 @ 03:01 by a-d : There's nothing stronger
than an Idea whose Time has come /// Voltaire
This is true -and no Mind control or threat of punishment for "Thought Crimes" can make this Cosmic Law (?) to go away/render it powerless!
The Idea/Insight, that is at this moment making its way into the darkest of recesses of the densest of Mainstream Minds is -or I should say are, because it is indeed a whole "Grape Cluster" of ideas; all "pulling the same Tag" so to speak: among those ideas are: to "revere Life, love Liberty, celebrate Kindness, Peace & Harmony" and these are all -of course- very closely allied with what is called Sustainable Living with co-operation and sharing; symbiosis as its Modus Operandi resulting in strong SYNCHRONICITY -as opposed to competition-MO, which is based on the belief in struggle and scarcity and some one's superiority over an other etc: the "goodness" of SELFHISNESS-at-the-cost-of someone-else, so to speak, which has been with us longer than I care to think any longer.
This new Understanding is cracking into pieces the "logic" of this old thinking. (WHAT TOOK US SO LONG????!!!?!? isn't it all so SELF EVIDENT???!!!...)
Once we as a Collective Unit have gotten this Life-Sustaining way of living down, we will open up ever more to this next Step in the (our) Spiritual (r-)evolution which is nothing but a natural Extension from this "Sustainable "thing""... "The last enemy to overcome is death" as prophesied long long time ago, by Someone, who knew what he was talking about- and with that aging, illness etc.
The "State Question" was never meant to be a geo-physical one, but has ALWAYS been -and will ALWAYS remain- a question of 'State of Mind'! Soooo, for instance as in the Old Testament there's a lot of talk about the "Promised Land of Milk and Honey" for instance, -ad infinitum, almost!
ALL those words alluding to "Real Estate" -like "Kingdom","Land", "Realm", "State" are indeed metaphors for our Human 'State of Mind'; our consciousness (level/vibrational -conscious- oneness with the Universe = our own Cosmic Being'ness!...)...and in just a few years "Everybody" will be talking about this "Possibility" -or at least starting!... : )
No Geo States any longer, but only Stateless Societies...just like before Di Medici's take-over of Florence and then the rest... creating the first NATION state in the Lands of so called Italy; the Adriatic Peninsula! ( only City States existed up to that time; the early years/stages of the so called Middle Ages)
9 Nov 2007 @ 17:12 by vaxen : Here are...
some interesting questions:
To mark the publication of Norman Podhoretz’s World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism (Doubleday), the editors of COMMENTARY addressed the following questions to a group of leading thinkers:
1. Do you accept the term “World War IV,” or the idea behind it, as an apt characterization of the West’s battle with Islamic extremism, and do you, like Norman Podhoretz, see Iraq as a crucial early theater in that conflict?
2. Six years after 9/11, how would you assess our progress? What would you like to see happen next?
3. On the specific issue of the spread of democracy—a linchpin of the Bush Doctrine and a point of acute controversy between foreign-policy realists and neoconservatives—do you agree or disagree with Podhoretz that “democratization represents the best and perhaps even the only way to defeat Islamofascism and the terrorism it uses as its main weapon against us”?
4. Turning to the political climate at home, do you think the Bush Doctrine has a chance of surviving the elections of 2008, and if so in what form?
