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.


Scientologists New Uniform? Capes.... yes, red and black capes.

In st. petersburg florida normal folk are already creeped out by all the Seo-Org Scamtomoligists walking around in blue uniforms. Now, they are going to fucking black capes with crimson lining. I guess this is because Tom Smooze once played a vampire, or perhaps Misgivings, the new head of scientology (one of those high school drop outs who stopped reading so he doesn't have to worry about all those ideas getting in the way of believing anything he -- or l ron hubbard, wants to) , just decided they look bad-ass? Who knows? If I was able to think like these people, I would put a shotgun upside of my head and blow those thoughts into the nearest wall.

The capes probably also have something to do with their lying belief that they can... FLY. Yes, fly. St. Petersburg is going to look like a vampire coven. In a hundred degree day, this is going to cause them to sweat themselves soaked walking a couple blocks.

My, what magical things they must think these capes are. A cynical ploy to get the comic book guys inolved, perhaps? Or are they actually thinking about recruiting among pre-schoolers, who I could definantly see jumping on the cape bandwagon.

Anonymous will have to make up their own capes. They should have a scarlet red A with white angel wings on the side. A flag they can wear on their backs as they march (stumble?) off to war. They are abolitionists. Mental ones. Saving people from an insidious form of slavery that our laws have not yet caught up with. L RON RON declared his cult a church and had the money to buy tax free status. Christians swindle their ilk, too... but at least that is not their primary mission.

Yes... those capes must have something to do with that promise that they can fly...

These are the kind of promises you can make, when you will make up anything that you think people will want to buy. If Scamtomologists got what L Ron promised, they would have long ago killed the rest of us off. That is within the scope of this church. Fair Game is how the rationalize destroying anyone who crticizes them. This is impossible now that the artistic community, and the activist community, has finally gotten off their asses and started confronting this con game.

The Internet showed that Tom Cruise has no clothes. Hollywood was afraid to do it, because they did not want to offend anyone who could hurt their career, I suppose. They are all afraid of getting black balled for this or that -- drugs, being assholes, anti-semetic, racist, etc... Reputations are important when a producer is wondering if people will pay to see you in their story.

People outside of hollywood, like me, on the other hand -- I have been all over cults since I started blogging, having studied them in school, and done some research for an anthro article, my books... etc... Scientology is the worst in my opinion, because they operate like a rogue government all to themselves, all in the name of being a church. They make a mockery of the laws meant to protect churches from taxes, etc... by pulling elaborate scams. They used to buy as many politicians as they could, hold elaborate fund raisers for them. Add that with attacking all of their critics, and silencing most of them, and you have a very deadly precedent.

The fact that they are against psychiatry shows a wariness of psychotropic drugs that admittedly more people should share. One of the points that L Ron made was that drugs were being pushed on people who did not need them. There is a lot of truth to that, but not for the reasons Hubbard laid out. Some doctors are irresponsible, lazy, and just out to make a few bucks. Some do all the can. Some are overwhelmed and try whatever drug might help people who they have not found a way to help. A lot of chaos involved. 95 million dollar ad campaigns foist seroqul and other drugs on everyone they can, including 13 percent of pregnant women, even though it has been shown to have caused infant deaths, and all sorts of diseases.

Just today, the government started stepping in to stop the flow of these drugs to pregnant women. I have been reading about SSRI drugs for awhile, on a site that exposes them, and after having my own mind twisted by being put on one, and it is enough to make any fanatic think there is a huge conspiracy going on. I think it is the evil of capatalism at it's most 'Snake Oil Being Sold out of a Wagon Worst.'

To throw out all research by psychiatrists is crazy, though. Pure bunk. Like saying there is no evolution. I have been helped a lot by talking to psychiatrists. The drugs never helped me, but I learned a lot about myself, and how to live better, in therapy. Money and time well spent, and I would recommend it to more people, but the drugs... that is where the patient has to draw the line. Only a few people really need anti-depressents. Changes in lifestyle are usually enough. And these drugs are known to cause a lot of suicidal feelings, so tell me the logic in taking that if you are depressed?

That is not the only place I agree with Scientology. People thought I was one, for awhile, I think... because we believe some of the same things. They are very few, however, and insignificant.

The mystical things I have seen, and experienced, are few, but telling, to me. Astral projection, and reincarnation therapy effected me. Together, they convinced me I am a soul that is living over and over. I did not read this in a book and just believe it, I did a lot of meditation to astral project, and went through a formal process for reincarnation therapy. I expected nothing from either of them, since I was at an age when i was trying all sorts of different belief systems. Christianity seemed foolish to me, especially the way it was practiced in the conservative churches I was exposed to, so I read the Hindu's, the Marx, the Greek's, Islam... I found most of them to be more poetry without substance.

Now... I have had a lot of other experiences that are mystical as well. They are very infrequent, but startling enough that they are seered into my mind like a list of things that prove to me there is more going on here than meets the eye.

I basically keep it very simple. This happened, and I do not know exactly what it means...

L Ron had to write an elaborate book that merely used a few things I think, too. His Jesus being an implant into people's minds is kind of amusing to me. A nice metaphor in a way for how Christianity is full of a lot of illusions.

Those new uniforms... wow. Maybe that is what I need... a super hero costume. They promise their recruits they can become Supermen... the cape is about all the can deliver -- of course, it will come at a price, which all their poor slaves will have to shell out of the stipend they get for their 80 hour work weeks.

Now that new recruits are not coming into this particular spider web, their fearful leader, Misgivinngs, is repackaging old scam-books with new covers, and forcing them to buy them up...

Ho.... ho.... ho.... capes. This could be the nail in thier coffin. The funniest part is that they do not see how laughable this is. I am sure that in the language they speak the capes have all kinds of mystical meanings, because they use language in a classic brain washing way--- language is a game unto itself that requires you believe a whole lot of bunk to communicate (wittgensteinn talked about how language is a game, and you agree to certain rules to talk to others --- cults use this to control the language, and thus the thought, of their members; like the sci's saying referring to people as SP's (something like suspicious person, but worse). They dismiss them with a word of their own making, for reasons of their own making, that would not hold up in the larger language game that most in society share.
