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.


American's Are Turning Against The Educated Class... Class? Being Educated puts you in a Class?

The below article clip talks about the polls show people moving away from educated opinions.  What are they moving toward, lynch mobs with pitchforks and torches?  Following Glenn Beck into the Fourth Reich?   Letting Limbaugh and other propagandist do all your thinking for you, so you can be a good little sheep when it comes time to fleece?

Fucking, eh, people...  would you turn away from your doctor because he is Educated?  Cause they Got that book learnin', they do...  Can't trust them books.  They can say anything with them there books.

Let me just put this a way that those who are moving away from Educated Opinions will understand --  someone who is educated in a topic knows more than an amateur. Amateur's fill the newscastes, and they are known for being terrible at explaining science -- ask any scientist, and they will tell you, what it takes three courses to learn, cannot be explained in a few paragraphs in a dummied down newspaper.

People are simply being manipulated now.  We need to entrench.  Tell those who are against science to get real.  There is no 'educated class.'  There are people who have opinions based on others opinions, and there are those who base their opinions on facts -- that is what education does to you.  You are challenged again and again by prof's to think properly, to use critical thinking facilities.

This list of factors why people are shifting right, makes no sense at all.  Unless you view it through the prism of critical thinking.

Critical Thinking came to me, finally, in college.  Before that, I did not know enough to footnote my beliefs with honest to God Facts.   Part of being educated is that it makes it harder to lie to you... anyways, this critical thinking mechanism is not triggered in a lot of people.  They accept what they hear first and stubbornly avoid any facts that diminish their world view.   Giving over our critical thinking to other people saves us a lot of research, not to mention honest soul searching.

This is exactly the mix to get another Hitler in power.

Now, why are people moving away from the so-called educated class, anyways?  And what does that mean,that they think the Republicans are less educated than the Democrats (which is true), and that is a good thing?  The uneducated's bible learning hasn't been demon infested by all them crazy theories about evolution, is that it?

I guess if I was uneducated I could just look at this list and go, "Them fucking egg heads.  They can't do nothing, right.  Always using them big words trying to look impressive, because why else would they say all them words nobody knows?  They sure as hell ain't talking to me."

This is not just people being bummed that Obama couldn't use Alien Forces To Make The World Eden In A Year...  something more is here.  A back-lash against reality itself.   They act like if they do not believe in the Greenhouse, that it will go away.  Or since it was cold this winter, it was all a lie, all those decades of rising warmth are just so many words on doctored reports.  What the hell?  Do people really think that scientists make up their own facts all the time?   They walk down that path seeking new truths, not social planning for the gnomes of Bilderberg.  Yes, there are secret societies and shameless backroom deals in this world, but the Green house effect is hardly one of them.  In this scenario, Obama is a mere puppet.  Come on...  people.

I mean, part of being educated is having your reading steered by people who study books, and have tried to find the most edifying paths for your mind.  They weed out a lot of the crazy crap, the blind paths that others have gone down -- they are very against reinventing the wheel, which is the problem with going off and learning about the world on your own.  But mostly, education is about learning to think.  Some majors more so than others, obviously.

To pretend that Educated people are more deluded, flies in the face of history.  Where the hell would we be if this attitude actually won out?  We know, actually, because it has happened all over the globe.  Tyrants who killed off the teachers and the intellectuals first, because they would be the hardest to brainwash.

Man.  What a good lesson for the kids.  Go to college, we tell them, though be prepared to have a viewpoint that most people will not share, and know that your politics will be defeated over and over by propagandists, working for the financial elitists, who will manipulate the uneducated masses.  Yes, try explaining that to the kids.

What the hell, why not make a law that kids can quit school at twelve, after they learn to read and do math good enough to run a cash register, but not well enough to feel a need to read other than the bible and those  faith for dummies books on the topic at Christian bookstores.  We need bumper stickers saying,  'MY KID IS NOT SOME GODDAMNED HONOR STUDENT.'    "Educatin is for Pussies" could be a big t-shirt.

Now, I know that self-education cannot be underestimated, and that not everyone who supports these issues has been to college.  Human rights does not take a masters degree to understand, or even a grade school eduction.  What is sad is that people refuse to learn.  Refuse to look at all of the facts with a willingness to reassess their beliefs, like one does in college.   The world is way too complex to simply put your head in the sand and say "We are not going to listen to the experts."   How the hell did this country get to this juncture?

I think Obama needs to get his face out there again, to start appearing all over the place, going on talk shows, etc... getting his message, once again, directly to the people, instead of having it watered down and manipulated by the media.  When I try to imagine what life is like for him now, I am sure I fail, but I can sniff out the obvious and have no qualms about writing it, as  my work proves again and again much to my chagrin.   He must feel a sense of betrayal in a way.  Some say he betrayed the left, but I think they underestimate the reality of politics, and presidential power.  He wants to change this country fundamentally, and that is not going to happen overnight, especially with the Republicans fighting him out of uneducated, pure and simple partisanship.

I am glad Obama announced today his new initiative to produce 10,000 science and math teachers...  but you can bet the uneducated are thinking, "Yer not making my kid into some hell bound liberal Muslim lover who believes in fucking science!!  See what Obama is doing, he's forcing the view of that damn educated class on our kids!"

Read it and weep....

This from the NYT

 The public is not only shifting from left to right. Every single idea associated with the educated class has grown more unpopular over the past year.
The educated class believes in global warming, so public skepticism about global warming is on the rise. The educated class supports abortion rights, so public opinion is shifting against them. The educated class supports gun control, so opposition to gun control is mounting.

The story is the same in foreign affairs. The educated class is internationalist, so isolationist sentiment is now at an all-time high, according to a Pew Research Center survey. The educated class believes in multilateral action, so the number of Americans who believe we should “go our own way” has risen sharply.
A year ago, the Obama supporters were the passionate ones. Now the tea party brigades have all the intensity.
