Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

The newsletter for those prepared to look and see what is there.

No place for ostriches, snowflakes or those who blindly

bow to the unholy alter of tyrannical authority.

Wednesday 26th July 2017


Hope this finds you fit and well. Here is a bunch of what flittered through my mind or crossed my digital desk over the last week. I hope you get something from it!

Save Our Marine Life
Save Our Marine Life

The Turnbull Government has released its draft plans for our suspended National Network of Marine Sanctuaries.

Unbelievably, they have completely ignored their own science recommendations, the voice of the Australian public and the pleas of local communities.

Devastating cutbacks are proposed for our best-loved marine treasures right around the country, opening the door to destructive commercial fishing and to oil and gas giants. At Lord Howe, Geographe Bay, Perth Canyon, the Great Australian Bight, the Gulf of Carpentaria, the Kimberley and our Coral Sea, the cradle to the Great Barrier Reef.

Now they are seeking feedback from the public.

I’ve just added my name to save our sanctuaries and thought you might like to do the same:

If these plans go ahead, we will be the first country in the world ever to go backwards on marine protection. Is this the record we want for Australia? In a country with more unique marine life than any other country on Earth, and whose lifestyle, livelihoods and tourism depend on health oceans.

The timing could not be worse.

In the face of the devastating coral bleaching, unprecedented mangrove dieback and disappearing kelp forests we’ve seen over the last year, our sanctuaries are more important than ever before.

The Coral Sea is hardest hit. More than half the globally significant sanctuary has been stripped away and some of the world’s most important reefs opened up, including Osprey Reef which has been described by David Attenborough as the perfect reef.

There is overwhelming community support for these sanctuaries, including from the vast majority of recreational fishers. There is international scientific consensus that sanctuaries are the best thing we can do to protect our oceans. And there’s been work by all sides of politics over many decades that is now being completely undone.

Hundreds of thousands of Australians came together to create our National Network of Sanctuaries. This is the moment for all of us to speak out to defend it.

Please take a moment to add your name today:



Take Jury Duty
Take Jury Duty

A worthy repeat from 2012... ...still as valid today as it ever was, maybe more so. An informed jury prepared to find the accused not guilty if charged with breaking tyrannical laws is our legal and legitimate defence afainst tyranny.

A judge cannot find the accused not guilty of breaking tyrannical laws, only a jury can do that. And they can only do it if they know they can do it. So spread the word. Your freedom might depend on you having a jury of 12 good men and true who know their and your rights!

Take On The Corporations

Most of us would not knowingly, deliberately fund a terrorist organisation.
Most of us unwittingly do, every day, through the purchases we make.
To avoid this, take the following steps:

To reduce the power (income, personnel and influence) of the multinationals and increase your awareness, competence and survival potential.

Become more aware. (Ignorance is never bliss. It leads to unpleasant surprises, often with disastrous consequences.)
Inform and educate yourself as to the way The System works and tread a different path.
Add your voice to the campaigns promoting sanity over vested interests, government power, tyranny and corruption.
Start by reading labels and understanding what is in what you eat and who is the owner of the business from whom you are buying.
Don't buy things you don't need.
Pay down your debt.
Get more competent at communication and selling and marketing.
Transition to a job that is on your basic purpose line. (Chances are it won't be working for a multinational.)

Buy local, patronise mum and dad business and local farmers organic markets.
Have 50% of my weekly expenditure go to non-multinationals within 3 months.
Have 70% of my weekly expenditure go to non-multinationals within 6 months.

Make the time to make more of your own food rather than buying preprepared and packaged food.
Have 70% of my food made at home within three months.
Have 90% of my food made at home within twelve months.

Sell what you have that you do not need.
Clear out non-used items and garage sale or otherwise sell them - 3 months.

Your Health, Your Choice
Your Health, Your Choice

Your right to choose complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is under threat.

The majority of the world’s population relies on and/or uses some form of CAM, with more than 200 million people using homeopathy to support their health. That choice is now under threat in Australia. A highly flawed, inaccurate and misleading Australian report on Homeopathy is being used as justification for regulatory changes which could restrict access to homeopathic medicines. If this happens, the precedent is set for other countries to follow suit, citing the Australian report as sufficient evidence.

Australians are uniting to protect their right to choose CAM via the ’Your Health Your Choice’ campaign. By supporting this campaign you can protect your right to choose too.

Join the ’Your Health, Your Choice’ campaign now - it’s easy:

  • Register your support for the campaign at
  • Share on Facebook
  • Share on Twitter and use the hashtag #yourhealthyourchoice
  • Forward this email to contacts who also support the right to choose CAM.

For organisations with newsletters and blogs:
Discuss this campaign in your communications - click to download campaign images (be sure to link these to

Your support is vital if future choice in healthcare is to be protected worldwide.

Thank you.

I dunno, my big toe is pretty good at it too. And my soles are great for finding lego pieces in the dark!

Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
