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.



loose the dogs of war on the unsuspecting masses
get them ready by sending in the cheerleaders to diss the enemy and laud the home team
tell them the blood of their children flows like honor...
from the bullets arise red badges of courage

Peace I think
Peace poetry too afraid of being didactic to take a side
for a few lines and then... carried away again by the raging one
who is usually best kept chained away

total war
for total peace
fought by spies and snipers and death squads and satellites
and drones that fly in like toy airplanes and blow who ever
straight  to where ever

guerilla warfare fought by Obama's Generals
going across the globe hunting down terrorists and their allies and innocents
who talked too much or are walking down the wrong street on the wrong day
or born into a family with a son who went too far for the americans
tossing out the idea of boarders and courts and jurisdiction
we loose the vicious dogs of wars and then turn away from the carnage
killing and killing and killing
until every village is safe for every child
until there is enough justice for the rebels to lay down their arms
until another generation is left to pick up the pieces broken by their elders
to rebuild in the rubble and ashes left after the armies raged through

we hunt each other block by block
use police work to catch the other soldiers
the underground fighters of al queda and whoever else hates the states
from the homegrown to the just too damn distant to know us at all really

they always say they have nothing against the american people
just the politicians
try to win us over so we will pressure our governments to stop the wars
what they believe is our on-going crime against them
to the convinced some are heathens and some are chosen and of course of course
they all feel like they are chosen
act as crazy as the originators of such ideas
the inbred royalty
who believed no other family worthy of breeding with their own

you can't warn the civilians to leave or your targets will take off, too
ain't you daddies war

without that trial though... without that uniform
we ended up torturing innocent kids sold to soldiers by criminals
became the monster we fought/the cruelty we had toppled

the battlefield now spreads to the internet and newspapers and tv
a complex game of psychological warfare aimed
as much at the audience of the soldiers as the troops themselves
war fought behind a high fence of lies
reported by good looking people on the news
who seem to be reading from the 'The Stars and Stripes'
keeping their toes on the party line/suspicious about it/l
ike a child avoiding cracks that break their mothers back

we hunt them down by the internet and phone and spies and calls from strangers in the night
watch them awhile and then strike

I hear the new president
who promised peace
is now openly warring on terrorists globally
sending the special forces in to take out our enemies before they can strike
taking the war into their living rooms -- where they die in operations that takes their families too

the blunt words of war
death and destruction
no getting around the very worst crimes known to man to fight a war
kill people and destroy property


the orders given to soldiers are the exact opposite of what they are told all of their lives
then we wonder why they cannot adjust their minds back into civilian lives?

becomes a commandment that no longer applies/a sin turned virtue

we at war
all over the spinning globe
at every airport
they have to watch for enemies now
or risk being preyed upon

I dream of a day fought for and won where peace is offered not as an option
but a given
the way things are

I don't care if it takes one world cops to tame the wild convulsions in humanity
an army with no country operating with impunity
taking down the corrupt officials grown too powerful for the local cops
the mass murderers and gougers

Obama is doing a full court press
Expanding the war beyond Bush
Taking on pre-scientifica-head-in the assica all over the globe

I don't want war but I don't doubt that others do
and to do nothing... avoid response
wait with the shades drawn
knowing just outside all Hell has been let loose

welcome to world war three
if you will
if you don't count the constant battles we have been fighting
all along
hidden in the shadows and with out right soldiers
with aide to student groups in cold war countries

a disease has infected a religion itself
Holy Words become Battle cries
God all enmeshed in blowing people up
and throwing rocks at soldiers
makes me want to puke

God does not cause war
man does
God does not stop war
man does

I feel the presence of the soldiers around the earth
feel their quickened heart beats as they cover a forheead with a cross hatch
as they lay dying
as they attend the wounded
as they wonder what the hell they are doing in the middle of this shit when they would rather be doing
just about anything else
hyped on speed and whatever it takes to come down on time to take commands

no use denying some men are going to fight
and no use denying that we better get this over with before someone uses a nuke

stop the war with war the masses are told
I understand this smacks of an oxy-moron
total war for total peace
that is where we are for good or bad
not a prediction but a fact

we want peace here in the states
we have to choose battlefields
because they hate us and are coming
whether we deserve it or not
and their numbers swell with every death
gone from saviors to arrogant masters to targets
just kids dying in dusty streets
for noble ideas that dissolve in the pain of bullets
