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.


what do you stand for?

Most people merely stand for what fits best with the status quo. Even if the status quo is making them miserable.

People all have a cosmology; a view of the world that leads them to act in certain ways. This worldview is pervasive in the psychology of a culture, and can easily seen from hair cuts to slang, that the culture acts almost like an organism that consumes our individuality.   We start with our parents, our community, go to education and then off in all sorts of directions, specialties...  some specialize themselves right out of the Conversation, end up studying obscure texts and finding there that no one who is not living in their particular myth will care about... their stream of thought ending in a dead pond that will soon enough be drained and forgotten.

This leads to the present crises, and the ancient crises.... most people merely stand for the status quo -- especially the most powerful, influential people in a society.    If a king has control over vast sweeps of towns and cities and churches and etc....  their complete control on ideas links the church and state -- most of history has the leaders declaring themselves Gods, though now it is fashionable just to say 'chosen' by God to lead...  which, let's face it, is about the same damn thing when it comes to inflating ones ego.

Beware the Superman who is unaware of their fatal flaws...  they die quick.  The politicians who try to keep their personal life from having anything to do with their politics are sold out liars.  You hurt people with legislation, you might as well understand that your hand is slapping a few faces.  Their lives may insulate them from criticism, their money and status may let them live above the mucky-muck, attending parties where their polite manners bring them kudos from other important people;  the syncophents;  the invested;  the wet chicks who just want to wrap around the powerful and suck that money right out of them, splurting right down into their hungry, hungry souls like the very elixir of the Gods.

Others stand for the status quo even when they are miserable;   a requirement to be fed, clothed and the higher you want to go up that ladder, the more you have to be like the status quo.... or appear so.   We stand for the status quo  for a myriad of reasons that range from cynicism with politics that makes us avoid the process (Twain said he did not vote because 'it only encourages them), to false faith in sleazy polticians and media alarmists and out-right right wing propagandists willing to say anything to push their agenda, fact an fiction just a means to an end...   to just wanting to 'not rock the boat,' to wanting to stay out of jail or avoid being disgraced,  ridiculed for being different...  to scared off by intimidation tactics they use on activists like myself.

Societies so far have not come up with the perfect political system for the world, obviously. We are infants when it comes to governing an entire world, but that is what is being done at this very moment. Various factions with a myriad of beliefs run their little fiefdoms.

Going along with the status quo in a place like China keeps you from ever reading these blogs. I went to a chinese search engine and was amazed by all the shit that was not there. Certainly my name is not, though it is all over google. I hate any kind of censorship. I despise the religions that take themselves too seriously. They take their books, their myths, and half histories more serious than GOD himself. Who is man to decide that one religion is better than another?  NOTE:   since I originally wrote this, it has changed... now, you can find all sorts of criticism of the United States if you look me up in China, though this blog and facebook are hidden....  THANK YOU CHINA.  I am glad I got in a little bit.  Hope...  if it's all you have, be grateful.

The search for God is universal. The coding of human behavior in books of wise men has been done since the dawn of the story teller. Now we have to all come together and be one world living under a few basic ethical beliefs -- basic human rights, an open press, fair courts, and good, free public schools that teach the most cutting edge of science, whether the church yet has room for the latest of God's revelations or not. This is why the Bible was written again and again...  and meant to be an open ended book.  Check your local library for proof this continues...
