Dear Richard:

I do not understand how a revolutionist can write a
philosophy for these days without mentioning the word
corporation once. How much stock are you holding in case the
revolution doesn't pan out?

John H. St.John


Dear John,

I didn't leave it out intentionally.  On the other hand, I
see corporations as a symptom more than a cause.

How many corporate products do you buy every day?  What is
the relevance of questions like this?  Is our sincerity in

Dear Richard: 

Thanks for your work in bringing your relevant thoughts and
ideas to the collective consciousness.  I found on my list
an article of your or copy of letter to some fellow sufi
thinkers and your words resonated with much that has been
churning away in my own consciousness and in my ongoing need
to stay awake, aware and present to the times we  live in.
Schronicity abounds; I'm also reading Doris Lessing's
autobiography and was astounded at her insight on the
historical process.  She felt that she did not become truly
awake until she began years of study with Sufi master,
Indres Shah.  And she was very active politically,
especially in her years as a communist in Rhodesia, and
later in the early post war years of Britain.  At any rate,
tho I am truly a neophete in all these areas, I welcome your
many links and ways to inform myself so that I can be more
at choice in my attitudes, beliefs, etc.   My own intuition
is a reliable guide in this de-conditioning, de-bugging
personal project of mine!    If you send out regular
e-mails, let me subscribe to same.  I welcome your input.   

Sincerely, Norma Pirie


Dear Norma,

Thanks for your comments, and you are now subscribed.

You'll get two copies of this, being on both lists, but most
postings go only to one list or the other.

    A community will evolve only when
    the people control their means of communication.
    - Frantz Fanon

    "One cannot separate economics, political science, and
    history. Politics is the control of the economy. History,
    when accurately and fully recorded, is that story. In most
    textbooks and classrooms, not only are these three fields of
    study separated, but they are further compartmentalized into
    separate subfields, obscuring the close interconnections
    between them" -- J.W. Smith, The World's Wasted Wealth 2,
