HOME - all posts interviews
I'm writing to you today because I have lots of comments on Islamo-hegemony, lots of thoughts about using energy. Plus there's We've Just Begun - music about our having just begun, like to turn the tide. Also, a bit about eureka moments - moments when everything may change. Finally, an interview on lots of my ideas.
Islamo-hegemony. Last time I suggested, that if anyone dared to mention that bogeyman, Islamophobia, we turn the tables on them, ask them why they're being Islamo-hegemonic? In case you missed the sendout: http://elsasblog.com/170225-catatonia-induced-reduced-erased.html
A couple of people hated the term, a couple of people loved it. Plus lots of other comments:
I'm usually allergic to terms that can be called "highfaluting." I remember, in my student days, being dragged to a Communist meeting - Maoist Leninist Trotskyist, if I remember right. Every other form of Communism, I was told, was WRONG. What I remember most: rows of people sitting on wooden benches LISTENING, as if to some higher being, to stuff that was putting me to sleep, no matter how much I tried to be interested. I still don't understand the appeal of Communism. But by now I've heard about Alinsky's Rules for Radicals so often that I know they're dangerous and we'd better watch out.
I bring this up as I would, naturally, not have anything to do with the term, Islamo-hegemony. But it has a wonderful Marxist flavor. And it's being aimed at Marxists, Islamists, and the whole politically correct establishment. So I'm in favor of it.
decide for yourself if you like it or not. Most important, use it (or one of the alternate terms) to ward off charges of Islamophobia. As I said last time, offense is the best defense. The PC, the Marxists, the Islamists, etc have been allowed to be on the offensive for far too long.
That brings me to "energy stuff." Again, if it interests you, or even if you're just curious, press reply and add ENERGY STUFF to the subject line. What's been happening? It's another tool against Islamo-catatonia and against attempted Islamo-hegemony. Energy may seem "weird" to those who have never tried it. But it can be quite effective - just as many people have found prayer powerful.
To learn a bit more - including about 2 different energy things:
And then, to try out the energy exercises:
I don't know if I should, next, move on to We've Just Begun, or to my penchant for eureka moments.
I'll start with We've Just Begun, which has been a long time in the making. This is the third version. I strongly recommend you listen - and if you like it, please pass it on anywhere you can. I already have a commitment to get it to Nigel Farage.
It's one of those pieces that kept tugging at me - try this, and what about that. I'm super lucky to have Mark, a sound producer friend, ever ready to go further.
I'm going to include just 2 of the most recent comments from friends:
Get it to Trump!!!!!!!!!
Just one word: W O W !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everybody has to hear your video.
And especially politicians.
Robert Madore, Canada
Last week I listened to Nigel Farage, who has devoted over 2 decades to get the UK to leave the EU. He was jubilant. His sense: 2016 is the year the tide turned. June 23 - the UK voted to leave the EU. November 8 - the US elected Trump. Now in the Netherlands, Geert Wilders is ahead in the polls. And in France, Marine Le Pen is surging forward.
My sense: music can help us celebrate our love of freedom - music like We've Just Begun.
In Canada, it's being sent to Kellie Leitch, the Conservative candidate with the best grasp of the importance of Western values.
And now, last but not least, eureka moments. My life has turned in unexpected directions, over and over, through my responding to stuff that's caught my attention.
For instance, I had no interest in being a poet or songwriter. And then, a couple of decades ago, I began to wake up with "word and music" pieces forming in my head. I could have pushed them aside. Instead I listened.
I could also have ignored my sense that something wrong was going on, when millions of Islamics marched against a little cartoon while, in the same year, zero Islamics marched against the murder of more than 10,000 Islamics by other Islamics in just one city, Baghdad. Instead, I explored. I've kept finding more and more.
That's all for now about eureka moments. Except: my sense is that the more we're free on the inside, the more eureka moments we'll experience.
with that, all the best to all of us who care and dare,
