Brave New World Revisited is 1984 vs. Brave New World. Also Ape and Essence is a planet of apes  (written ironically in 1948).

The Truth About Modern Tea Parties

Posted in Cooperatives / Communities / Networks / Travels, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2010 by Drogo

The truth about modern ‘tea parties’, as with the original historic ‘Boston Tea Party’, is that they are not a single political party. Political ‘tea parties’ are events and projects in reaction to the control of existing political parties. A ‘tea party’ is an act of rebellion, with anti-establishment attitudes towards taxes (not to be confused with traditional tea parties, where you sit down and have tea while socializing).

The ‘modern tea party movement’ was started during President Bush Jr.’s second term. From 2005-2008 rallies and protests were held around the Country out of frustration with unwanted wars, and increasing taxation without representation. Even more people (like myself) became aware of and joined the movement online, using Youtube as a platform for communication and expressive documentation through video, audio, and text collaborations.

SCOD’s involvement with the founding of the Modern Tea Party Movement (MTPM) came by being a member of TPA (True Patriot Action), and TPA collaboration videos that often used grassroots music. Other TPA activists that SCOD worked with during the early years of the MTPM were FreesoulJAH, Witzkeyman, Conkling, Citizenkong, Leafdude, Firemynx, Amandadevik, Coffeedude, Methadone4life, Anarchyclayman, and many other Youtube users. TPA search tags should confirm this article to anyone unfamiliar with the true origins of the MTPM.

I believe that CNN and major commercial news networks missed the underground origins, because they were not following our grassroots (non-commercial, non-corporate) activities. Now (in 2010) big media is only reporting the current Tea Party news, as the movement has grown and evolved. I believe the change in the movement lumping it more into the Republican camp, is due to the fact that many independents involved were Ron Paul supporters and a Democrat is president now. Ron Paul was a Republican before running for President, although the core of his beliefs, as shared by many followers, is free-market anarchy (anti-government). Combine that with a semi-black-liberal Democrat President and you have a ton of disaffected Republicans, replacing many of the independent and green liberals (like SCOD) who were pissed at Bush.

So let us be clear about the origins of the MTPM; we were protesting a Republican President who we wanted IMPEACHED, and we were sick of not being represented in Congress (with the exception of Kucinich, Keeney, and Wexler). Clearly the resentment against our corrupt government run by big Pharma and the Military Industrial Complex, is extended to both the Republicans and Democrats. Resentment of Big Government, and the ‘taxation (often) without representation’ that runs it, is obviously keeping the MTPM alive and well, and perhaps growing and maturing it (according to the press).
