The concepts of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ or ‘good’ and ‘evil’ that define the moral principles governing society today are derived from a morally bankrupt society, still in the thrall of corrupt, Judeo-Christian mind-control. For example, you can be ‘good’, honoured even, if you kill innocent children while wearing a special costume (military) and follow a particular hierarchy of command, but you are ‘wrong’ if you speak out against the action of that command structure on any matter of moral principle, ie whistleblow. Society rewards those who conform to and enforce its values, regardless of whether they benefit the members of that society, or any other creatures on the planet, or the planet itself. Gaian ethics aims to discover the innate human moral values that are in accordance with the natural order of life and the animal nature of the anthropine species, but are nonetheless uniquely human. I say ‘discover the innate human moral values’ because we have been so cut-off from our roots and our lives are so unnatural, that sometimes the ‘right thing to do’ is just not that obvious. The Gaian warrior needs to work through this maze holding his/her self to the highest standard of moral virtue in any situation – arete.
Arete (Greek: ἀρετή), in its basic sense, means “excellence of any kind”. The term may also mean “moral virtue”. In its earliest appearance in Greek, this notion of excellence was ultimately bound up with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one’s full potential.
The term from Homeric times onwards is not gender specific. Homer applies the term of both the Greek and Trojan heroes as well as major female figures, such as Penelope, the wife of the Greek hero Odysseus. In the Homeric poems, Arete is frequently associated with bravery, but more often with effectiveness. The man or woman of Arete is a person of the highest effectiveness; they use all their faculties—strength, bravery and wit—to achieve real results. In the Homeric world, then, Arete involves all of the abilities and potentialities available to humans.
In some contexts, Arete is explicitly linked with human knowledge, where the expressions “virtue is knowledge” and “Arete is knowledge” are used interchangeably. The highest human potential is knowledge and all other human abilities are derived from this central capacity. If Arete is knowledge and study, the highest human knowledge is knowledge about knowledge itself; in this light, the theoretical study of human knowledge, which Aristotle called “contemplation,” is the highest human ability and happiness.”
I have no doubt that human animals are loving creatures, playful, hedonic, intelligent and intensely curious, but I am equally certain that the social order on this planet is currently dominated by non-human, archontic hybrids ( you might refer to them with the less controversial label of ‘psychopaths’) and they do not respond to love and kindness and deal only in deceit, deception and domination. The Aeonic Mother is correcting this problem, as it is the result of Her error after all, but it is up to each of us to clean out the residual effects of this infection in our own minds and lives. Only then will humanity be able to live in ‘love and light’ without it being just a code for cowardice and the expectation/hope that some one else will sort out the problem. What is the correct course of action?
So what is to be done? Many people believe that changing the human condition one person at a time is the way to redirect the course of the human species. To some minds, individual transformation will generate a quantum effect. The date December 21, 2012 is a focus for positive speculation along these lines. There are those who say that love alone is enough to make the difference and turn the world around. Others believe that exposing the three Ds in the social sphere will eventually produce a resistance force capable of defeating them. I will not cite the numerous variations of this theme, which are certainly familiar to readers of this site.
I, for one, wonder if individual transformation and commitment to love, whatever its ultimate social and global effect, can really have any kind of preventive or deterrent effect on those who perpetrate deceit and domination. Is there evidence that this is so? Personally, I don’t see it. But then I may be blind to it. Suppose, however, that individual transformation is valid but still leaves us facing the problem of how to face and overcome EVIL: that which defies innate human goodness, works against the symbiotic unity of life, and impedes our species’ capacity to survive and thrive. By EVIL I mean, not a cosmic principle apart from or above us, but a self-destructive resistance rooted in human potential, which distorts that potential—a deviance of our potential that works against our capacity to live and love, both collectively and individually.
This kind of evil manifests largely in the social sphere, in racial and religious divisions, in the deceit propagated by miseducation, religion and authoritarian agendas, and in the general domination of the mind by the family, culture, media, and other ruling hierarchies of social order.
What if it takes special measures to solve the problem of social evil? Can it really be overcome by taking action upon it directly? What kind of action can be taken? Throughout history, violent revolution has been the response when social evils become intolerable. Consider the French and Russian revolutions. Through that kind of violence, the evils are directly confronted, yes, only to be replaced by other social evils… Consider the Maoist revolution in China. To anyone who has studied the inner dynamics of history, this inversion seems inevitable. How can Rite Action propose anything different?
Rite Action proposes a direct way to counteract and defeat the 3-D game of perpetration: division, deceit, domination. I question the claim that people who intentionally divide, deceive, and dominate others can be overcome by loving them, radiating love to them, surrounding oneself with a field of love, and so forth. While such methods may immunize us, and produce a positive field that emanates to the world at large, they fall short of direct confrontation with evil-doing, i.e., human auto-destructive tendencies operating in the social sphere. Also, I would warn that to some extent, at least, such glowing claims are pretexts for remaining locked in victim-perpetrator collusion.
Having said that, I must emphasize that I am not proposing hatred as an alternative way to overcome perpetration—because love (in my humble view) is not up to the task. The power behind Rite Action is not hatred but rage. Pure selfless rage. Black rage. Transpersonal rage. Lest anyone be frightened off by this extremely charged term, rage, take a moment to consider this notion: rage might have a transcendent aspect. It might even be regarded as a factor of human generosity, not merely a negative, destructive, or reactive trait. Nature is full of rage. Gaia can be a rageful goddess: consider the lion-headed Sekmet in Egyptian mythology, to cite one of countless examples. The power of rage is innate to human nature and prevalent in the animal kingdoms, as well as among birds, serpents, and insects. I propose that rage be regarded as a kind of resource—even a moral resource—and not something to be condemned or repressed.
Rite Action proposes the recognition of pure, transersonal rage as a resource for facing and overcoming the forces that defy the innate goodness of humankind and work against the symbiotic unity of life.

Contra-violence is a way for those who are against violence to use the capacity for violence in a ritually implemented attack on wrong-doers. You may reject physically enacted violence as a means of control and domination, a way to hurt or overpower others, and so forth, but if you accept violent action as an accessory to self-defense, you would be qualified for this practice. If, however, you are someone who would not defend yourself if attacked in the street, contra-violence is not for you. It requires recognition of the capacity for violence in oneself.
Contra-violence is the use of violent capacity in a selfless and benevolent manner against those who are violent for evil and selfish purposes. It is a path of action intentionally taken against (contra) violence, by contrast to the non-action of letting violence have its way, or passively resisting. This path veers sharply beyond the ethically acceptable tactics of passive resistence and non-violent dissension. Gandhi drew his ethic of non-violent resistence from the Jain concept of ahimsa, harmlessness. Warrior ethics embraces the necessity of meeting violence and the orchestrations of evil that need violence to be accomplished, with a counteracting force. Anyone who believes that social orchestration and deliberate evil can be overcome by love and passive resistence is welcome to their conviction. You might as well believe that a schoolyard bully can be overcome, and prevented from doing harm, by taking a beating from him and loving him for it.
Contra-violence is not harmless: it can intend harm, even lethal harm. The operative word is intend. Contra-violence channels and focusses the intent to harm in the cause of species-defense and for the purpose of eliminating surro-predators, humans who prey on their own kind. The first rule of rite action, the ritualized release of transpersonal rage, is that it never used on anyone you know in a personal connection.
Contra-violence is harm intended to those who harm for selfish purposes in such a way that the harm profilerates globally. Using rite action, the individual who practices contra-violence intends violence without undertaking the physical means to achieve it, without using any kind of physical weapon or material instrument such as a poison, without any direct contact assault whatever, and without acting through an intermediary (hired killer) or a network of intermediaries. Contra-violence uses “action at a distance” with no traceable physical link from the practitioner to the IT, identified target. When the intent is lethal, it results in a magical kill. Shamans have conducted actions at a distance for ages in tribal socieites. Contra-violence is the practice of shamanic aggression on the planetary scale.
If it seems objectionable in any case whatsoever to intend harm to others, consider this: intending harm is an inescapable posture that arises within the human condition, an innate disposition highly exploited by some, and denied or abnegated by others who regard themselves as better people than the former (assuming “the higher moral ground”). But if intending harm to others is bound to occur, as it surely is among some members of the human race, then it could be viewed as a responsibility to intend harm for no other purpose than to counteract and defeat those who do so on purpose, pursing selfish ends such as acquisition, control, and domination. To practice contra-violence is to reciprocate the harm done for self-serving ends. This particular and crucial act of reciprocation brings the moral centerpoint back into social order. Balance is restored by contra-violent actions, but to refrain from intending harm toward anyone just on principle, categorically insisting that doing harm to others is unacceptable, keeps the scales tilted in favor of the perpetrators who do not have any such scruples.
Harming others is done all the time on this planet. What makes a difference is who’s harming who, and why. The objection that returning harm with harm will only breed an escalating cycle of violence does not work for contra-violence: because the course advocated is not violence to match violence, but violent intent directed toward its equivalent. It is possible to hold violent intent and still be a loving peson. However, the love so felt is never directed toward the object of violent intent. Love is not the ultimate solution for world peace. It would be if everyone wanted love. But plainly, everyone doesn’t. Love has no persuasive power over deviant and insane human beings who intend harm, orchestrate social evil, and prey on their own kind. Caught in terminal and lethal insanity, they turn against the species and project upon it their monstrous conceit of superority, even godhood. They seek to destroy humanity physically so that there is nothing left to show them the absence of humanity in themselves. Love does nothing for such people. It cannot reach them or inspire them or magically convert them to better people. Contra-violence is the way to eliminate them. Any society that cannot detect and eliminate such perpetrators and predators is doomed by its own moral weakness.
Rite action, the ritualized expression of contra-violence, does not involve harming anyone who does not harm, or intend to harm, others. This path involves no indulgence in pseudo-Satanic power games. Practitioners do not conduct animal and human sacrifices in the performance of these rituals. They do not induct and abuse children. They do not use women for degrading rituals of sexual empowerment. As the preceptor of contra-violence, I utterly condemn all such practices.. A Gaian warrior does not use lethal power on anyone except surro-predators, humans who prey on their own kind. No harm intended to those who do no harm is a primary principle of warrior ethics. Love your enemies, turn the other cheek, and do good to those who harm and persecute you, are definitely not principles of this path. Gaian warriors view such platitudes as schizoid ploys of perpetrators who rely on victim-perpetrator bonding to keep the upper hand and succeed in their game of division, deceit, and domination.
Perpetrators of social evil work against the human species and the symbiotic unity of planetary life. In their endgame scenario, currently showing across the globe, they madly conspire to decimate the human race. Eugenics is their signature, bureaucracy their cover. In their insanity they view themselves as a special race endowed with the right to enslave humanity or annihilate it, depending on how their agenda looks on any given day.
Those who believe they can control the world cannot control themselves. Those who spread terror through the hoax of terrorism live in a state of perpetual fear. They require elaborate measures of protection and secrecy to persist in their psychotic fantasies of domination. They are weaklings who cannot stand alone in the moral sense. They have no autonomous power but must rely on cadres of support and complicity. They acquire their power from the passive consent of people who are not smart enough to get on to their game. They are at liberty to prey on their own kind as long as there are not enough human beings with the guts to go after them. Not just expose their machinations, not just prattle on endlessly about how clever they are in their deceits, not just accuse them of the obvious evil-doing and entertain the futile dream that they will one day be brought to accountability, but go for the kill. Bring them down. It’s the end of Kali Yuga, folks. It’s open season on predators.

The First Battle is in Your Mind
If you have already determined that you will not fight to protect what you love, including yourself, you have already lost. Good luck. Once you have made the decision to fight if necessary to defend your home, your family and your way of life, you are already winning. From then on, any defensive or preparatory action you take, strengthens you. Here are a couple of easy ones and I’ll post more as they come up.
Vote With Your Cash
The war on cash is underway. because we can use our cash to hurt our enemies. Every transaction with a small independent trader, as opposed to a multi-national corporation supports our future. The BDS Movement is not just about Palestine, because the same group responsible for the destruction of Palestine intends to turn our countries into a wasteland and commit genocide against the native Europeans too. It will take all of us, doing everything we can, to prevent this from happening and using our purchasing power as a tactical weapon is easy and effective.

Many of these companies produce cosmetics and personal hygiene products that contain chemicals that are harmful to us and the earth. They are also expensive and unnecessary. Your skin is absorbent, why put anything on it you wouldn’t be prepared to eat. I’ve been making our own shampoo and moisturizer for three years now and my skin and hair are very grateful for it!
Check the ingredients on EVERYTHING you eat or put in your body
If you check the ingredients on the food you eat, shouldn’t you do the same for prescription drugs and especially vaccines? I am certain that anyone who looks at the ingredients of vaccines would recoil at the thought of injecting such a vomit-inducing brew into their children – canine kidney cells, formaldehyde, aluminium, mercury, bovine extrtact, green monkey brain cells, to name just a few. Many will cave in under medical and peer pressure, telling them it is perfectly safe and prevents terrible diseases. This couldn’t be further from the truth as anyone who looks into the history of vaccines will discover. Most won’t of course, but for you who are still curious enough to investigate and sane enough to follow you own instincts, here is a list of vaccine ingredients: vaccine ingredients
