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.


war... what is it good for? Well....

Afganistan is not Vietnam. I was and am against the vietnam war. I honor the soldiers who served their country despite their doubts, but I despise Nixon and that vile demon Kissinger (mr. power is an aphrodisiac), who went to war with a nation that 1) had never lost a war 2) wanted to be a democracy, and we ignored their overtures, forcing them to go to the Soviet's for support. A total fuck up. General Ridgway told them it would take ten bloody years to take the country, and the Government threw him out of the army. Afghanistan, however, is not Vietnam. They are terrorists bands who come from all across the middle east to fight some mythic america that they have in their head.

If we turn our heads away from this threat, they will sooner or later grow efficient enough to attack americans on our soil.. oh, oops, I guess they already did that on September 11th.

I am not a war monger, but I do believe that every human being has a an ethical desire to help the poor and downtrodden. This is a difficult urge within us, and some people do their best to turn it off... but sociobiological imperatives are there. One is altruism. Read EO Wilson's On Human Nature to open your eyes on such matters.

No one likes war. So anti-war protesters feel like they are morally right. If we could stop war today, we would. However, this requires our enemies to do so as well. From what I can see, that is not happening. As the world becomes more mobile, and the techniques for urban guerrilla warfare increasingly sophisticated, the US has no logical choice -- we either fight them in Afghanistan, or wait until they come to our soil and fight them here.

These are shit heads who think that anyone who is not Muslim is worthy of being killed... and of course Muslims who disagree with them are in the same boat. As much as I respect the Muslim religion, which is a much as any religion (except possibly buddhism, which has helped me more than any religion, and their pacifistic themes may one day sweep the world into nirvana, for all I know, and so personally I like them best... which is odd for a guy who has had all these visions and shit... as I describe in my blog waking up Jesus. None of my visions said that any one religion was right. I saw God, and I saw myself spewing lightening and fire. But, when someone else declares themselves dedicated to destroy the American lifestyle, I want them destroyed.

Saudi Arabia is having success taking hard core terrorists and using therapy to straighten out their heads. This is great, and a better alternative than killing someone... so we should offer them all free therapy and a cushy bed in an institution for a couple years. In fact, sending in therapists to talk to terrorists about their motivations, and trying to help them to see that killing people is not going to get them snything more than a bullet made int he usa, they probably will come around.

wherever there is an enemy to freedom, we should be fighting, or at least backing someone local in their fight.

Were I a billionaire, I would hire a private army to take down Mugabe today, and I would be all over Afghanistan killing the shit out of the terrorists. I would be kind as hell to the prisoners we caught, even though I know if they caught us, they would drag our corpse around the internet.

I drove cab in rough cities, in tough neighborhoods, and i know that some people are too fucking crazy to deal with in any way except violence. I hate that this is true.
However, it is true,

I want us out of Iran, when the people there will be safe from radicals... the same with Afghanistan. I hurt inside whenever I see how many have died in these conflicts... but I would go if I could. This is not a good war... there are none. But we have to fight fire with fire, and if they are trying to burn us down....

sorry I have to feel this way. I wish I could be a peace nik. Maybe in the next war I will be. Not this one.
