I left the BBC America channel on last night. When I put the TV on today, the Torchwood series was playing. 

It tells the story of a world where aliens are returning. They communicate by taking over the children-- all the children in the world-- who freeze and then start mouthing the same message; "we are coming," then, "we are here."


scene from Torchwood, the BBC show.

Here in the US we have people who are in the 99%, or even in the bottom 10%, who vote for and support the 1% because they are deluded into believing that they will join the 1% and start making $340,000 a year or more. 

I met one the other day. She talked about how she was being screwed by the local municipality, in ways that they didn't do to big chain operations. I asked, "So, you're an Occupy supporter?"

"No," she replied, "I'm a member of the 1%, or I intend to be." 

Later, she told me that her store was netting her $13,000 a year. Not surprising. She was paying a pretty high rent and in the 30 minutes I was in the store in what should have been a busy Saturday, only one customer showed up. 

This women is deluded. She is living in an illusion. She is like these children, only instead of speaking in unison, directed by extraterrestrials, she is pulling election levers that elect people who vote profoundly against her interests. She speaks against people who would help her better. Of course, most Americans don't have a chance to vote for good elected officials. They aren't on the ballot. The two party system excludes them. And most Americans allow it to happen, acting like the children of Torchwood, mindlessly wording what is put in their heads, except it's by the corpstream media.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
