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.


Political Activism... does that require leaving my house?


I have been writing this morning at a site called Rant and Rave, after getting sicker than shit of all the good press that Reagan is getting on his one hundredth birthday. The only good thing about this shit is that he is dead. My first book, One War, was about the transgressions of this mass murderer as much as anything else. People who read that book come out of the experience, quote, 'vibrating' with hatred of the intelligence agencies. This was not exactly my point, since I also know they saved the Dali' Lama and keep terrorists at bay, etc... I want the people in the CIA to be accountable to someone who is sane, not a criminal like Bush.

They are open to a lot more criticism than they get, which is going to happen with organizations as secret as the CIA. In our military intelligence classes, we studied the FBI mostly, because our Prof., Dr. Danial Stern had more experience with them (Indeed, the files on him fill a room... and he was a voice of peaceful dissent when everyone around him in the sixties were becoming so frustrated with trying to change the world that they thought they needed guns. Even John Lennon, who has been co-opted by the Peace is the Answer folk, said this, "THE MORE PAIN WE HAVE, THE MORE GUNS WE NEED."). The CIA was too hard to crack, and since the stories about it were less based on fact, with little primary sources for us to study, the professor stuck to what he could academically prove. He also slipped me a book about how the CIA inserts personalities into people at one point, which I have wondered about ever since waking up after a coma with the personality of Christ slowly taking control of my thinkiing.

When The Terminator of California chose to add Reagan's Statue to some thing in Washington, and replace an older political figure who convinced the state to be part of the union in the civil war, is an insult to african-americans --- they took down the statue of freind of the people, and put up a statue of an enemy of the blacks if ever there was one. Remember the famous quote about "Welfare Queens?" There is not only a lot of ignorance in that statement -- most people on welfare are white, and his slam was reserved for black women in the ghetto. You know a president has access to any info he wants. He could have known better. The Republican party, until this last year, ignored the black vote, just wrote it off. They knew that Blacks had, for the most part, seen through thier scam.... my black friends are actually more prone to believe a conspiracy theory than I am, because, especially in Chicago, the history of what was done by the FBI to the radical blacks in the sixties was religated to a mostly verbal history. They know, a lot of them, that there are two major perceptual landscapes in america --- the group who believe whatever the government and the media say, and those who see it with their own eyes.

They see the cops on tv and find no them incompatible with the image they have witnessed while being constantly harrassed for appearing black enough to be a criminal (My good buddy Ben quit driving to avoid rascist cops (and non-rascist cops who are using rascist tactics), because he was sure that sooner or later he was going to kick someones ass over the issue).

I remember Reagan cutting out the arts and sports programs in California to balance the budget. I hate politicians for this shit. They should just raise the taxes. In Europe, inthe countries that pay the most taxes, people are happiest, because the government actually does a better job in some cases than predatorial, self-interested businessman who are slaves to a few speculators who own their stock.

We need higher taxes in this country. And we need to legislate that businesses cannot just up and move to a lower wage part of the world without substantial penalties (hopefully enough to make them decide that their employees lives are worth something after all). We could solve a hell of a lot of our fiscal problems by legalizing and taxing pot, but no one wants to be sane enough to do this. Polticians fear losing the just say no crowd, without understanding how many of us are out here ready to support them if they take a radical action.

Some days I think I should run for office, do it like Hunter S. Thompson did when he ran for sherrif. I would campaign on the idea that Iwas going to try to get pot legalized in Chicago, and to finally get the government tax stamps (which exist as a way dealers can pay the irs without any penalty -- though few take advantage of this, it is a sign of sanity on the part of the government, and an acknowledgement that those involved in selling weed are usually not criminals at all.
