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.


scanning the news, planning the radio show, the next RISING, so to speak

turn on the music and The Harder They Come by Jimmy Cliff starts me thinking in battle mode, trying to remember why I fight, what it is for, and who...

There are certain groups that I feel like I have joined at the Alamo.  Maybe Little Big Horn, laying behind the horse I had to shoot dead to hide from a hail of arrows . . .  cursing Custard for leading us to the slaughter.  Issues where I feel like defeat is almost part of the deal when you enter that battle.

I watch Democracy Now, that depressingly accurate broadcast -- the tv equivalent of the Nation, fascinating and yet sickening/another wedge between myself and what is going on in this world.  Everything is so fucking serious now.  Lives dying fast and furious while they wait for the politicians to do as they were elected for;  on veteran's day I hear that more vet's are dying from being uninsured, than are killed in Iraq.  This is just one segment that is effected by this capitalism gone wild horror.  A  poignant one on this day.

I am trying to hammer out my own political beliefs.  They do not fit into any cookie cutter.  No communist or capitalist gets my full backing...  there is a balance in all things, and they are off right now... this I do know.  How to correct this is not as difficult as it is made out to be, except in one respect -- political will of the people to protest and agitate to drive their politicians to act is lacking.  That said, I see this country as needing to move radically left on certain issues, including environmentalism and social safety nets.  The government at its best could step in right now, and start a rebirth of this nation, a WPA program would certainly spread money to people who will spend it right away, and the savings in local budgets of towns and states that benefit from the waves of artists and builders and etc that fan across the country will help local economies.  Take the money out of the wars, and bring it home....  where it is needed NOW.

A war on our own poverty and excess.  A balancing of wall street and main street and the back streets.  This time around, these movements have to be generated by interesting large sections of the internet audience in participating in politics.  Higher taxes are just going to have to be a reality for the upper-crust.  The utter collapse of the mythical trickle down economy into economic chaos, and the demeaning of the lifestyles of the many for the largess of the few that resulted from the Last few decades of tax cuts, means we have to try something else.

When a government concentrates on the interests of a few sectors of their societies to the exclusion of most of their citizens, an adjustment is required, to say the least.  Pointing out the obvious here this morning.

Anyways, the radio show...  I have the first show laid out, ready to record the promos and some poetry soon.   I have decided the primary way I am going to generate interest is by being funny.  This is easy with my  comedy short stories laying there ready to be read.  The radio show will be on podcast, which will basically mean that anyone can listen to the comedy whenever they want.  The world is just too fucking dark to do the show I want without a lot of laughs.  They will be dark and sexually disgusting at times, inappropriate in ways that are not open to more conventional comedians who have to cater to a 'public image.'  The joy of being a guy in a housecoat on a quiet street tapping words into a laptop.

Democracy in action.  The first way I am going to get the word out on this thing, is to contact with a form letter of sorts, groups who instigate protests.  Then I will call, find out who I could contact or where to go to get this info.  I will make a blog just for the radio show, where the protests will also be listed for the week.  This will get the word out about the show with groups who have the most to gain by listening to me -- free spirits and the literati and societies missionary types.

Anyways....  this is boring the hell out of me.  Must have bored you even more.
