I am a student of history, religion, exoteric and esoteric, the Humanities in general and a tempered advocate for the ultimate manifestation of peace, justice and the unity of humankind through self-realization and mutual respect, although I am not a pacifist, nor do I believe in peace at any price, which is no peace at all but only delays inevitable conflict. There are times when the world must act. Planetary consciousness is evolving, but there are many retrograde forces that would drag us back down.

I have also written one book, a combination of poetry, photography and essays entitled "Post Katrina Blues", my reflections on the Gulf Coast and New Orleans two years after Katrina struck. Go to the store at http://sanfranciscobaypress.com/ to purchase. And I also have a blog called Plutonian Mac.

Gaddafi Family Values (Updated) The storming of the Gaddafi family compound in Tripoli as well as the seizure of some of their other houses and properties by revolutionary forces have brought to light more than ever the opulence and decadence of their lifestyles, but now another term often used in reference to at least some of the Gaddafis is finding new emphasis: sadism.

The Hidden Things of Muammar Gaddafi For someone whose core vocabulary in public speeches and broadcasts often consists of nouns like "rats, vermin, snakes and cockroaches", all of whom hide in dark places or burrow underground, it is not surprising that Muammar Gaddafi and his regime have had a propensity for doing the same during his 42-year reign, both literally and figuratively.

Round one will likely go to Netanyahu, but this is a fifteen-round fight.

Not so Happy First BP Oil Disaster Anniversary for the Gulf (Videos) This week is the anniversary of the worst environmental disaster in history, the BP oil catastrophe and coverup. BP, from the very moment disaster struck the Deepwater Horizon, began to act like a hit and run driver, and what they couldn't run from, they tried to cover up and buy out with all their billions, simultaneously launching a PR campaign to create a Potemkin Gulf, which, however, has nothing to do with reality.

Who are the Rebels of Benghazi? An Interview with Reporter Jihan Hafiz Just who are Libyan rebels? To hear ideologues of both the Left and Right, they are tools of al Qaeda, a propaganda smear that Gaddafi also uses 24/7. Yet conspiracists and much of the Left also damn them as tools of the CIA and Western Imperialism, failing to note the contradiction of branding them as pawns of the West and enemies of the West at the same time. Meanwhile, reporter Jihan Hafiz, sheds real light on the rebels.

Some are smart and well-educated, indeed apparently smart enough to jump off a runaway freight-train heading for a cliff.

Meanwhile, the Guardian UK states that there are secret talks going on between the Gaddafi regime and London, so what does that portend? Will the train divert itself?
