News and views of Constance Cumbey concerning "Radical Middle", New Age Movement, Communitarianism, "planetary humanism," "global governance," European Union, Javier Solana, Jeremy Rifkin, "New Age Politics," law in the USA, combined with life in general -- sometimes humorous, sometimes not!
I just watched this video. I am interested in the opinion of my readers on its content. Personally, I think he makes a great deal of sense. I fully agree with him on the tuition issue. What we have done to the younger generation in terms of higher educational costs is nothing short of unconscionable. This is turn is fodder for the obviously New Age "Occupy" revolution.
Let me know what you think and please, STAY TUNED!
On January 31st, Occupy Miami's tent city was evicted by police action. According to Miami news sources, this was after four months of protests there. The occupiers had staked out and used Government Center. A sympathizer gave them a half-empty apartment building in nearby Overtown, Florida. What transpired next became sheer hell for the paying residents of the same building.
To those of us old enough to remember the "hippie movements" of the late 1960s and 1970s, this had a sense of what the New Agers would probably term "deja vu." We've seen this before. Residents complained that drugs were obviously in use. Doors were ripped off hinges, bathroom sanitation was non-existent. Anarchist signs were painted on their new "Peace City."
THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT (OOOPS, aka 'OCCUPY MOVEMENT') LATEST -- AND ON MY 17TH BIRTHDAY (GRIN) AT THAT. FOR THE RECORD, I WAS BORN ON LEAP YEAR DAY! This is getting to be a more and more bizarre exercise in what I perceive to be Hegelian dialectics in action, e.g. CRISIS = OPPORTUNITY, or GLOBAL ANARCHY = OPPORTUNITY FOR 'GLOBAL GOVERNANCE.' Who will benefit?

As an active Michigan lawyer, I practice my profession primarily in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties of Michigan, USA (248-253-0333). Sometimes I do work in my old "stomping grounds" of our State Capitol, Lansing, Michigan on administrative, state law related matters, as well. I've enjoyed active and stimulating careers in government, politics, law and as a published and translated author. In the past, I have worked for the Michigan House of Representatives, the Michigan State Senate, and the City of Highland Park, Michigan. I'm the author of the first major critical book about the New Age Movement, THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW: The New Age Movement and our Coming Age of Barbarism (1983); A PLANNED DECEPTION: The Staging of a New Age Messiah (1986). Currently, I'm completing a volume about Javier Solana, the Barcelona Process, Israel and the European Union. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
