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.


morning poo

That would be good name for a newspaper -- the morning poo. Muckwracing, yellow journalism. This is what makes the world go round... or at least the hamsters go round.

Everyone, including myself in a way, is concerned about what shape journalism is going to take. At this point, not enough people understand that the conventional way of doing business is corrupt right now, by biased news. Or should I say, Biased Near News. They do not usually deal in facts, the kind of journalists I am referring to are both right and left wing, though usually right because they have to rely on more lies than the left, who more often than not have truth and justice on their side.

What would be the lose if Fox news was gone? What would be the gain, if demands for impatiality were actually made upon Journalists. If everyone suddently decided that Fox news is one big opinion page, with a few interesting fun facts of the day sprinkled about to make their various tired old partisan points, and quit watching? Would the other networks look for new ways to be balanced to meet the new need?

That is irrelevant. Because unbiased is not what most want. We can't afford to trust the idea that anything is unbiased. Everything is, and one has to see this in various degrees. The source of information is the first way to judge how accurate you are going to get the facts. IF this is scama-tomologists putting out a website on psychiatrists, it will have this spin... if it is the 700 club christians, it will have this spin.... etc. Basic stuff.

In journalism, with the web, truth is going to become ever the more subjective. We are already moving back to a time of yellow journalism, where the big newspapers kind of fight it out, as the news stations do, and the magazines, and the different philosophies... ugh. I wish that into this mix we could expect something like the BBC to rise up in america. We can't exactly trust the government to report on itself, though...

The planning for the radio show has me thinking about ways of explaining different philosophies that I studied in school. A philosophy corner. Where Jesus explains Nietsche, and Ghandi explains Hitler, Al Gore explains George Bush,

Jesus on Niestche... you would really have to consider your source on this one. A friend of mine asked a minister what he thought of some of my beliefs, and the guy dismissed Frederick as the guy who inspired the Nazi's. Like he was some Nazi writer. He was not at all. A historical mistatement, made up by the philosophers sister, when the bard was bedridden and mad from syphillis. She cut out all the good stuff he had to say about Jews. Promoted him to her Nazi german world as the truth about how they were superior. A total misreading. Yet, this minister used this arguement to sneer at my choice of influences. It was .... classic.

The odd part here is that people who read me, brought this to the attention of a minister I was watchig for some reason, and he addressed the 'philosophy' of my Jesus, saying that these were the words of a 'preacher.' I described myself once as a thesbi-pain, and something of a 'preacher.' It stuck with some. He also addressed other controversial statements that I made, dismissing them all. He looked at the page of questions and basically let me know that
he thought I was nuts. Based on his own biases, he dismissed a fiction taken too much as fact.

This is stuff I am writing in the Waking Up Jesus Poetry, is speculative in a way. There are only a few points that I really write in stone. In other ways, this Jesus is barely more aware of what is going on in the Universe than other men. He is not always sure what God's messages to him mean. And he doesn't like some of them that he does.

The bible is the model for a biased source of information. Preaching is not objective.

If I tried to defend everything I wrote in that book... God, no... that would destroy what is honestly there. An extrodinary expereince, of getting the show, and the amnesia, and the inspiration, and the mania were true. Alone they are interesting stories. Along with the politics of the time, and the fear and loathing and worship that the Christ sets off around the world with his bizarre, and sometimes even repellent, messages from beyond.

I have no interest in writing a conventional bible. At one point, when I was trying to decide what this Jesus must do -- and believe me, the responsibility is right there, pressing and never ending... I had to know why this was happening to me, and God was work... so now anything was possible. I did not believe in the mystical very much, and this was a damn suddenly breaking inside me. Anything could be true, now... I thought.

I dreamt, in the first week after getting amnesia, of how to tie a bunch of sources of web information together, to put together what seemed like a new bible on the net. Looking back at my memories of the diagrams that I drew, I find them kind of simple....

JUST NOW TWO JEHOVA WITNESSES CAME TO MY DOOR. Second time since I moved here. They came at the old place on Sheridan all the time during my campaign. They always sent like this 14 year old black kid. I do not know why? Usually they have an adult, but he never did. I never let him in the house. I am very polite, and will kind of look at their magazines if they give them to me -- in an antrhopological manner, the same why I might read up on Scamatomologists. I think the JW are more sincere, actually. I have always found them polite, and if they are extreme... well, aren't the all on some level?

Back to this minister who was commenting on my waking up jesus book, basically. I grew fairly uncomfortable watching this, as you can imagine. At first it bummed me out and embarrassed me and made me feel a little foolish, actually. I am embarrassed by and to be religious in some ways. I can't help it. Then I got angry, because he was taking my work out of context, lying about it, and dismissing me. He has that right. I demand that right of him, and dismissed most of what most ministers preach, and certainly this guy, who was so conservative that he could not bring himself to say homosexual on the pulpet... actually stuttered over the word, then spit it out half said and shook with disgust.

So I got pissed. What a surprise. I think I took the entry down after a few weeks. I was too harsh on him. Why wouldn't I expect Waking Up Jesus to be viewed as heretical?

It fits that bill.

I should use that as my job description on my next box of business cars. HERETIC.

the time, with my always attack bac philosophy on high alert, I slammed the guy on my blog, and threatened to come down and picket his church with huge pictures of dicks on sticks...
