A blood soaked Arthur IS RISING

Gonzo journalism and fiction is a tricky mix.... Welcome to my razor's edge.


I am an elf in the attic making mind toys with sharp edges; an educated writer who gets good reviews, who you can read for free in the rough form of first drafts on the web, or purchase in a book form.
The best soldier does not attack. The superior fighter succeeds without violence. The greatest conqueror wins without struggle. The most successful manager leads without dictating. This is intelligent non aggressiveness. This is called the mastery of men.


Welcome to you, I am John Scott Ridgway, Novelist, Poet, Blogger, Radio and TV writer and actor... five books, also paint in oils and acrylics. I am poet warrior of sorts, a non violent radical, personally, though understanding of those who choose other paths IN THE EIGHTY PLUS COUNTRIES AT LAST COUNT THAT came in this blog ...

The predicted revolutions in the USA and around the would are going to

be violent in the next twenty years, is what the CIA says. I want them to stay peaceful, which is the only way to win this struggle between haves and have nots. They have more guns, we have more people,, and they include the mothers and sisters and brothers of the people they will ask to fight us.... I think they underestimate the police.

NEVER ACCEPT APPEASEMENT OVER JUSTICE. By any means necessary is the reality. . . the USA can be spared stupid wars, but other countries. . . need different solutions. . .

The number of Countries that have come in to have a look at this blog humbles me. Thank you very much.



PROFESSIONALS, HOPEFULLY, like the police, military, etc...

understanding that violence is sometimes needed

does not mean I like anything about the sound

of fists hitting faces

Boxing is too much for me

make me feel like I am watching

dog fights with toothless pitbulls

"I am an artist first, and a politician second," as John Lennon said.

My intentions are to stop the violence from entering into

revolutionary wars

the CIA


will break out in the next twenty years all over the

world, including here...

But Ill tell ya,

if there is not some redistribution of

wealth here there and everywhere




My intentions is to keep these protests peaceful

so we can win

without bloodshed

Total War for Total Peace

Never incites violence

or destroys property

you should be able

to go to protests with strollers and babies

parents feeling as safe as the police

Now, poetry...

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...


A blood soaked Arthur has risen

be aware

be very aware

total war
for total peace
is being fought

THERE will be many ways to die
and only one to live
give and give and give
until the worlds downtrodden and oppressed
can begin to forgive
before things get bloody and ruthless
My Peace sign shot full of holes
and my reason ignored
drowned out by the roar of machine guns

You cannot break the golden rule
all the time and not expect
consequences from nature

we will fight for our right to thrive as well
we do not accept your sentence
to poverty so you can earn more
by shipping the factory off to China

nothing this mindgame in america can do to us
can destroy this thing inside that yearns for freedom
enough to die in the name of JUSTICE
generation after generation
from time

No more hyper-reality FOR US. We have already spent too long in an oasis of belief where nothing is wrong, folks... Now, we must face this was all a mirage... and try like hell to get out of this desert... or resolve ourself to the fact that we will leave our children to starve in the barren sands.

There are better ways to defeat an enemy than an outright fight, especially if you are vastly outnumbered, like the Elite. MSM PSY-WAR allows them to control our actions through our thoughts, and basically stop our FORCE from activating. I am not saying we should fight just because we can win, I am just saying we should fight before we lose, if no other option is left us.... because a world is at stake.

  • You are a spark in dry timber, stopped from becoming a roaring flame
    They SET UP LAWS THAT ALLOW THEM TO STEAL. MURDER. BRAINWASH THEIR CRITICS. We must begin to feel challenged now to stop them. Or WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. PERIOD. THE SKY, OTHER SPECIES, OUR WATER... OUR MINDS. No more hyper-reality for us... too long in that oasis where nothing is wrong folks... we must face this is all a mirage.
    • OUR LACK OF RESOLVE TO CHANGE OUR WORLD MUST PUZZLE THE GODS THEMSELVES.... how can we be this collectively dum? And if we are....then the brains will be looked to as potential saviors.... when all too often they are just psocyo-paths and stooges and scared folks under the gun who are ALLOWED to CON EVERYONE... FOR THE GOOD OF A

A cruel slap woke me to the PAIN
at the moment of birth;
My first cry was NO
buried in unintelligible screams.
I am a man now.
Now I catch your hand and break all the fingers.

the promise

You must be whoever the enemy fears the least
or fears the most.

No other position is saf

da general

Welcome to the spark that inflames TOTAL WAR FOR TOTAL PEACE.

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...

THE ELVES ATTIC is stories, poetry, essay's, peculiar events in my life . . . oil painting, articles.

Your patience for bearing with me on my first drafts is a much appreciated kindness. Your worldwide interest is my muse . . .Lately I have been writing a book called Gangsta General x, about a revolutionary in the USA, who is fighting to keep the revolt peaceful as things spin out of control in the states after a famine gets the populace hungry enough to change their society once and for all....

HOW TO USE THIS BLOG: There is a black and white jukebox in the right column that you can shut off, or find songs on.... To listen to the COMEDY SKITS FROM THE SHOW PEACE AND PIPEDREAMS... turn off the black jukebox, and turn on the Green one. I play Moon Bong Haze and Jesus...

I have five majors, five books, two tv shows, a radio show, 76 countries at last count on this site alone, and over a million online readers to my credit. I can't thank any of you enough for all of your help and encouragement over the years; the favors and aide that has been offered me, the trust in my leadership... you are all SACRED TO ME ... even you folks I tend to hate.


Thank you.


back on line

I have been off line for a bit, while the viruses were taken out of my machine; they had to clear the hard drive and I lost all my shit I was working on... mainly, manuscripts of the books already published, that I am probably going to have to work on for The rest of my life, or until i GET another editor. Oh, well. SUCKS FOR YOU.

I have been writing like mad, by hand, filling three notebooks with new poetry and prose. Mostly, I have been writing more poetry for the book waking up jesus. The edition I have published right now is basically the poetry up to that point. I have decided that the end form of the book will involve going from narrative, first person prose on jesus, to second person description, and then of course the poetry. Right now, the poetry is mostly what I have written. This gives me the ability to bury some of the top secret shit I have learned of late about the intelligence agencies that have been targeting 930,000 peace activists in the United States. Amazing, huh?

Without my trusty laptop, I was forced to read newspapers again. This apartment fills up fast with trib's, suntimes, the new york time, the red eye... and, embarrassingly enough, I occasionally even read the new york post. They are all full of shit, but they do a run down of the crimes and that always interests me. There is a free newspaper here in town that shows all the crimes of the last month and where they were. I pick it up, read that colemn, and leave it on the bus... or trash it... you know? What should you do when you finish a newspaper on a bus? I love it when I come accross a newspaper on the train. Others would too, right? I leave my newspapers because of this thought. Oh, well.

The new apartment, despite being tiny, has a large porch outfront, which we, see we are the end apartment, get the hugest portion, about twenty feet. You can see a baseball diamond across the street, and beyond that the lake. The dog, husky ruby doo, has learned to stay on our side of the porch, period. She loves laying out there... all day long. I don't have to tie her up... well, I did for three days, and she got the message. Such a smart dog. We live behind iron gates and a high fench, so no one off the street can get to our door... so we leave it open and let her come in and out. I love laying out there as well. Weirdly enough, accroos from our builiding, about 40 feet away, is a brick wall with no windows... though it is an apartment building. The view out of the living room window is a beige brick wall. Funny.

I have been trying to get to the bottom of all of the events that happened to me during the last year or two dealing with the media and the radio show and my new found kind of fame and how my writing has caused some of my readers to ACT IN WAYS I WOULD NOT APPROVE OF.\

As you may or many not know, I am trying to write a cosmology, similar to a religion in most ways, that can give people of any religion, and athiests, a framework for living that we all agree on.

I call these ethics, common ground. I think that just a few commandments that can be agreed on universally would let everyone in the world know where they stand with everyone else. Since the internet is where the futures consciousness will be developed and shapped into world wide cultures that are free of geographical prejudices, this is the place for this little experiment of mine.

I do not miss the radio show, though I do miss having a project going. I want to do a bunch of short movies, and Mary Ann has agreed to be my camera person. She grew to dislike going to the radio show, because her full time job got in the way... but she loves photography, so we are getting her a nice camera and a cool editing system and bam.,... all these visions of movies playing in my head will come to life.

I AM GOING to read my poetry and make videos of that. This will be cooler than just doing a blog reading of them where you see my head, though that is an option. I could do that and then maybe animate myself or whatever, though I would rather go out with a camera and shoot all over this gorgeous city.

We have the greatest set in the world in the streets, parks, subways of Chicago. The films will be crazy, hard core political shit. In your face. I almost expect another attempt on my life. I Got a lot of threats, then a connection told me that the intelligence agencies had found four people plotting to kill me. They are bugging almost every call made. Amazing waste of time, mostly... then they find whatever and they track em down. Thank God for them, even though i AM STIL ANNOYed about what they did to me.

I look back on all the revolutionary writing in the elves attic, since closed by someone and some of the stories were changed by someone... anyways... and I see why they were worried, and I see why some revolutionary groups who were just waiting for a cause reacted radically, showing the world that Americans will stand up and take their rights back if the government fucks up. We will hit the woods with our guns if they fuck us again like in Florida. I almost feel like if McCain wins...

I do know what will happen if they kill obama... the streets will be fire and blood, as the people rage against the world that would allow their dreams to be shot down again. Fire with fire. I will not accept John Mcain as the president either.

He has moved from a centerist to a neo con to get elected. This means he threw out his old values. He is taking money from people he never would of -- people who want another bush. He is not too old now, but I fear that if he gets another term he will turn into an empty headed reagen led along by his staff.

Obama is the best choice for america as a country. The symbol of a black man at the healm will make a lot of people world over think we have finally changed, that america is the leader when it comes to a democracy, and we can still be revolutionary... we can show the world how to do this peacefully, now.

I was at the hospital today, the old chronic pain... I go to the welfare hospital, and there was a dude sitting by me who wanted to talk and we went on and on... so many people here have black panther stories, and they are heros to me. The Fbi drove them to the acts that made them infamous, but if you look into them they started by giving kids breakfests, etc. People were afraid in the white community, because they were demanding their rights. Then they veered too far into the criminal world to act effectively within the system... not that the system would have done much for them then.... when neighborhoods here in town that would have once beaten up a black for walking in their hood, are voting obama.

There has been a great shift. Hugo Chavez calls it the Peoples awakening. I know I feel like I have been called to help make a major shift in the world toward the simple little things we believed as children -- make love not war.

I hope you all are well.
