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.


the political issues of the internet generation are getting slammed by the conservative idiots

First comes the cliche' that people who write for the net live in their parent's basement, then that they are single, porn addicted, pimply, pale and fat ( I did it too when I first wrote on the net, about blog-flamers, those people who think being mean on the nett is going to help the world... folks like me, occasionally, though you have to be just as generous with your praise, or your opinion is nulled).  Now a recent study showed that the internet writers primary political interests are getting Scientology's tax exempt status repealed and getting pot legalized.  The guy I saw point this out, a be-suited Republican Knighted by the Corporate Kings pretending to represent the people for the press, sneered the big sneer.  I saw him as one of the dinosaurs who just do not even try to get it.  Like the print journalists who pretend the only way to transfer information is through dead trees;  they seem to think any citizen journalism is tainted, though any fool can see a lot of what goes on the internet is trying to fill in gaps that they themselves have left --  we have had news outlets controlled by corporate interests that first and foremost protected the status quo, and now they do not even pretend to be unbiased...  they had to come out of the closet because the 'citizen' journalists pointed out their bias.

One of the greatest examples of citizen journalists are the staff of John Stewart and Steven Colbert's shows;  Stewart is now polled to be the most trusted journalist in America...  see why I asked him to help with my campaign before anyone else?  This was back in 2007, when he was still considered more a comedian than a social phenomena awakening a generation to the leftest opinion so long ignored by the traditional press.  He can make and break people NOW.  The 'Colbert' bump' gives writers and songsters, etc... who go on his show huge sales in the weeks following, and some get instantly famous.  They are both part of a media shift toward Total War For Total Peace -- the attempt of EVERYONE to begin to make demands on our political  system, no matter who they are, or how powerless they have been convinced that they are.

I was convinced I would never have any influence on Politics, grew cynical, until the Obama campaign and i found myself watching a video message barack obama had sent to me, directly, saying he wanted to meet me.  Same with Hillary.  Didn't happen due to my conviction, at the time, that I was going to limit anyone's ability to think for themselves... I was freaked out by all the people who were taking my words as gospel at the time...  I mean, by then, guns had went off around the country because of my call to prepare for a revolt...  I was writing about IF the republicans tried to steal another election.  I meant it.  I was like, get yourselves fucking ready.  Then they came after me, baited me, kept me in terrible pain, awake for days, etc...  and I told those who were following my words to just fucking go ahead and attack.  By then I wanted out of their world altogether.  Anyone who wonders what I mean by getting attacked by the government, refer to other entries because I am sick of writing about it after two years of putting together a book about it together, which they sent someone to tell me not to write, which of course firmed up my resolve to tell fucking everything.  This is fucking war and they drew first blood.  Left me here bleeding in my cell.  I try to forget the pain of this shit and forgive, but my thirst for justice wants that Nietzscheian need for vengeance!!  Maybe when I see  they have paid their penance?  I doubt it.

Now, back to those internet interests.  They took this information from what people were writing politicians about.  Now, what does this mean?   Does it mean this is peoples only concern, like the conservative politician pointed out?   Hell no.  These are just two topics where popular opinion and voting can make a difference.  We know that people want the environment kept clean and the concerns of animals taken into serious consideration, we have passed thousands of laws tinkering with this stuff, right?  What can the average Joe do?  Pot and Scientology, citizens are making significant progress in both of these areas, because we on the internet have demanded as much, especially as we learned the amount of people who smoke...  and societies old hippies, who know the mild nature of the weed and how much  better it is on the body and life over drinking, are taking control of the world.

I know the other issues are all out there.  I see them all over the web.  God bless the day that environmental alerts cause everyone across the land to take action in unison and force political reactions.   It is here now, but not enough people are using the net this way yet... they will.   Country wide revolts could be called almost instantly.  Sit downs.  Work stoppages.  Etc.   There are enough leftists in this country to stop it from moving...   And I am talking about Gandhi tactics here.  So peaceful that the cops are bored or interested in your issues.  My dream is that the local authorities morph into armed guards for the revolt.  Revolt.  What a loaded word.  I mean more a tinkering, forcing the wheel of justice to move a little bit at a time, incrementally enough to keep the peace, but quick enough to put out the fires.  Like when Unions band together to make their point.

Pot and a cult.  The first achievement of the left in years.  Well, this dude who sneered at these issues obviously has never had to live in fear of a narc showing up at his door the one time in his life he bought a quarter pound/me -- some alarm went off in my head, though I had hung with this guy many times...  a burst of psychic knowledge, though looking back I can see the signs of a narc all over him  -- he told us he was going to some trucker school, lived in this little hotel, and showed me some bogus identification card with his name saying who he was, which was something put out by a radio station showing he was a fan...  all ridiculous...  but he did bust a friend of mine I introduced him to, who he bought a joint from... he did smoke up with us, though..  just never those joints he bought, which he kept back and we thought he was bogging, but no... gathering evidence to fuck up the lives of people over next to nothing.

Anyone who thinks Scientology is a non-concern is dense to say the least.  Politicians who support and help cults are everywhere  -- the esteemed Harvey Milk is even slammed by the Jonestown critics, who talk about his support for the Kool Aide Killer himself, Jim Jones.  Our freedom of religion laws are abused all the time by these cults, used to brain wash people into cheap labor for predatory sales organizations.  There should be a law -- read the survivor stories, or the article I just posted, and weep that the politicians have failed us.

So there, to the Headintheassica suffering bitch who came out against the internet generation as frivolous.   What is really frivolous is this fuck, who allows these travesties to go on without a fight.

Writing about the internet mindsets I see out there reminds me of how weird the comments sections are just about everywhere on the web.  You see people trying to verbally joust, make clever quips, threaten, bully and cajole.  The darkest myths of ourselves as superheroes and shit come out on the web.  We can use words to basically PICK A FIGHT, as we set on our ass far from ever having to face the subject of our criticism.  Writing on the web is a little better than muttering back at the politics you happen to despise or love on the tv, but the content is NO better, most of the time.   Still...  I am amazed by the depth of even that emotion.  People are charged up.  And though these things are easier and more legal to write about than do, I read calls for blood and some right wing revolution that these crazies think is coming.  I personally, as I have written before, my hope that these racist rednecks come to the Southside and all get gunned down by the gangs and anyone else with a gun.  I would love it.  We way out number them.  They talk a big story because of their love of war, then underestimate the fury that they have stirred up...  is the same one in their chest.  Humans are humans.  For some things they will kill and imprison people.  Get the FBI to stop the right by just rounding them up and figuring out who is involved with a little waterboarding -- they could use those secret prisons that ICE sets up for the immigrants.

Oh, well... I love writing this kind of shit to stir up the right wing fucks who monitor my work for trends among those who are 'too left.'

Speaking of left...  I have reading more Ayn Rand crap lately.  I particularly hate this shit since I am disabled. This would leave me starving by the side of the road in an Ayn Rand novel.  Useless.  Yet most people would say that with the books, paintings, blog and radio show, that I was indeed living a productive life.  Ayn Rand tells a myth about how most people are lazy fucks who need to be enslaved, or they will de-evolve.  She believed that only a few good men, the work-a-holics, had any worth in the world.  The Producers she called them.  I read all the time from right wingers about how they want to get rid of the Non Producers.  With unemployment at all time highs, this would be a lot of folk right now.  I actually read a comment from one guy saying they should kill all the Non Producers and the liberals (yes, he actually used the Rand Reference).

An easy solution to pretend is real for simple, selfish minds that have no idea about how to actually relate to other peoples lives.  Everyones lives are important to them, even if they are not to Rand, or the Right Wing who advocate stupid shit like killing the non-producers.  Little different than Hitler's Jewish Problem.  Except this time the elite who get to live are the ones who have the best jobs.   Everyone else, including those stupid artists and the elderly, disabled, out of work, would be gassed or whatever -- knowing these guys burying us alive is an option.

THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.  This means that they are the ones who are left alive after the warriors have battled things out -- the peace makers come along afterwards, take over in the end of every war ever fought.  Also means that by keeping our protests non-violent, we gain the respect of the system, and the media, rather than being able to be easily demonized by everyone from the cops accompanying the march to the folks at home who know nothing is achieved by bashing the windows out of cars --  the old tactics of getting press coverage could easily be replaced by citizen journalists covering peaceful marches for the web;  we can stream this shit live, talk to people, get a lot more in depth than the 30 seconds they show on the nightly news, or the eight paragraphs in an article.

The 2010 elections would be a good place to show the internet/media influence.  If the Democrats could get more of a majority, these evil little politicians would be less able to play cut--throat with the bill to get the best deal, like they do with health care.  Leaving Lieberman as the swing vote is the worst position we could be in.  Dude is evil.
