Join Our Messenger Julian

You will be more
More than just yourself
In fellowship will you be your true self

You are not an island unto yourself
You are yourself
When we are in one another’s hands

We become more
When we integrate what Julian Assange has revealed
When we say no to his hangmen

(Written on the day of the allegedly “10, 2021.)


This youtube is a conference held about the US-UK extradition hearings against Julian Assange for revealing war crimes of the Establishment, and many other crimes such as stealing producers products and labor around the world. For that the governments of US, UK, Sweden, Ecuador and Australia seek to incarcerate Assange 175 years in prison, torturing him to death, and sending a signal to all journalists: do not dare reveal truths governments of capital hide from the people.

Suggestions to support freeing Julian Assange:

1. Press the new US government to drop the phony charges.
2. Write letters-to-editors
3 . Contact media to cover the hearings
4 . Organize actions/happenings at US/UK government buildings
5 . Donate to his defense fund


Julian Assange is the embodiment of what the people's artist Leonard Cohen sang in Villanelle For Our Time:

From bitter searching of the heart,
Quickened with passion and with pain
We rise to play a greater part.
This is the faith from which we start:
Men shall know commonwealth again
From bitter searching of the heart.

"I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It was like we had entire training reminds you of the glory of the American experiment." Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

Thank you Chelsea Manning! We are happy you are free again.

Inhumanity to one human is my own.
Oppression of one human is my own.

Jette Salling collage of my new book. This poster in Danish advertizes my lecture-discussion on the subject of War and Peace, US domination, the lack of sovereignty in Denmark and Europe in face of US's globalization. "Is Russia a war or a peace threat".


Western democracy claims to be the best system in the world because it promotes a multi-political party system with regular elections in which all citizens (except prisoners and ex-prisoners in many states) are officially allowed to vote. This system of "democracy" actually is the dictatorship of elites, the capitalist class and its allies.

"It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms." - John Stockwell, former CIA official and author.

Ernesto Che Guevara represents to me the struggle for justice, social equality, participatory democracy in which the producers are the owners and major decision-makers, once the capitalist economy based on greedy profit for the few is abolished.

Herein can you see many articles about the elite system of hypocritical democracy, how it needs control over us, how it nurtures on wars to expand. You can also see several of my books in the theme section, and many articles about Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Denmark, the wars against the Middle East and other countries.

There are revealing and sad articles concerning the genocide of Tamils by Sri Lanka's Sinhalese governments aided by most of the world: west and east, socialist and capitalist.

HERE "Winding Brook Stories". This is half of my latest book. These are stories of teachers and students involved in "Another Kind of Education". This radical schooling started in Denmark, (Tvind) in 1970, with 10 members in the Teachers Group. Now there are 3000 working in 45 countries "fighting with the poor" to end poverty and war.

HERE for an analysis of the US-NATO permanent war age.

"The rulers’ definition of terror is so broad that it fits most anything or anyone, except the ruling class’ governments and their military officials."

HERE for "Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka" and "Sounds of Venezuela" November 2011 book launching in Chennai, India. Excerpt:

"We have wandered over the deserts and the seas. We have been hungry and thirsty. We have been murdered and tortured. We are of the working class, of the castes; we are many races and nationalities. We share a common vision: freedom and equality; bread and water on the table; a shelter over our heads. We must fight together to live in peace and harmony."

HERE is my analysis of the year 2011 and what awaits us.
Internationalism is an endless struggle, an endless challenge. It does not end even when one or more of our political parties take over the governing reigns. We activists must always keep our wary eyes pinned on the leaders, regardless of their names, just as our clear eyes cast light upon humanity’s future.
