For the past six months, my primary project quite separate from Wiki World Order-related experiments has been to evolve the web-based tools of my father’s business. The work in progress can now be found at BigDataLesko.com, and much of it will soon be duplicated in a mobile app. Given that I have slowly grown into voluntaryist (anarchist) concepts, and his work has historically focused on government money and programs, I want to share a few reconciling thoughts. I am speaking for myself, not my dad, Matthew Lesko.
His primary goals have always been focused on empowering people to do whatever they love doing, becoming their own boss, and turning work into play. Shifting from wage slavery to flexible control of your own life hours and trajectory, doing things you actually enjoy doing and hopefully truly care about. The passion in doing work you love improves your chances of success, even though failure is always a likelihood (so you might as well have fun in your attempts). Find something to do that you wouldn’t want to ‘retire’ from doing.
Until the past few years, the best/easiest way to start your own business was generally to take advantage of government money and programs for which we have already paid in, but tend to be used more by fat cats and their subsidiaries. But recently he (and the world) have increasingly focused on crowdfunding as a generally superior method to becoming an entrepreneur. Not only does this decentralize the process of raising money for your venture, but you can successfully prove the viability of your business by finding your first customers before even starting. This is truly a revolution in small business creation, blind-siding old models taught in business schools past.
I was excited about the Occupy Wall Street movement, because I had been calling for revolution here via Wiki World Order. I was pleased to see coalesced outrage spill over from the internet to the streets, and got involved despite its plentiful shortcomings, especially the lack of strategic union between Occupy and Tea Party, which could have more deeply changed history. But I began to picture what felt like a best~case scenario… perhaps nationwide strikes, pots and pans in the streets, and a full-blown peaceful revolution. And I had a serious realization that we had no system in place to replace the established one, whereas the establishment had spin-off systems B through Z waiting in the wings in the rare case of an [uncontrolled] revolution.
Every dollar which funds the established corporate-industrial complex comes from us…either directly through thoughtless purchases or through our tax dollars. Withholding our dollars from those machines which dominate the established system not only dis-empowers them, but empowers the less centralized alternative society we will need to build together. The corporate-industrial complex will not end because we destroy it, but because we outgrow it, make it obsolete, and [gradually] replace it…’revolution’ or not.
If maybe one-fifth or even one-tenth of people were running their own business, controlling their own lives while providing something valuable to the world, then mega-corporations (and their ownership of government) would literally not exist.
For some, the easiest way to get there might be to reclaim some of the government money (that otherwise tends to trickle up towards the 1%) to fund their piece of the decentralizing solutions. I do see this strategy as an aikido move against the established system. But I also think more entrepreneurs will find crowdfunding to be the superior strategy. Either way, we desperately need far more of us beautifully unique humans working for ourselves instead of tentacles of ‘the man’. We need to support and initiate solving more needs/problems while adhering not to quarterly shareholder profits, but to quadruple-bottom-lines: social, environmental, financial … and PASSION/LOVE/FUN!
Because of all this, I am happy to help technologically bring pops’ business into this decade. I can’t thank my parents enough for the values instilled in me, and am crazy lucky to love my family so much…even if they are [still] statists. ;-P

Philadelphia, July 2, 2012, Day 3. Matt Taibbi visits the Occupy National Gathering to break down the LIBOR scandal just after the story begins to break. After giving a quick speech, he sits down with a couple dozen occupiers for some Q&A. Thank you Matt! <3
Philadelphia, July 2, 2012, Day 3. One of our occu-brothers, Amadon DellErba, gives a speech on Spiritualution.org. Many things discussed about community living resonated greatly with me from my last five months living on an occupied organic farm in Sacramento, CA.
Philadelphia, July 1, 2012, Day 2. The Gathering’s first major march, focused on the looming student debt bubble. While the police largely allowed us to temporarily take over various streets, they block us at the end of a bridge we attempted to cross. We eventually decide to turn around to avoid risking arrest, but hopefully educated the police a bit.
A few thoughts for my brothers and sisters from Wiki World Order…
I know it’s tough to march pass the Federal Reserve without protesting it. It and the New World Order ARE tied in with almost every issue, but the public cannot easily connect those dots, and our messaging is already difficult enough. Please get more clever if you want to bring these layers to a single-issue march.
Our system IS one of indentured servitude. Education IS a right, BUT we do not need indoctrination programs to get it. We should not need expensive certificates of completion to find ways to contribute to our world. We do not need money to educate ourselves. Autodidacticism and critical thinking is all we need.

Since the city of Philadelphia has relatively lax laws for sleeping in the sidewalks, dozens of Occupiers would hold “Sleepful Protests” each night in front of different banks. The general idea was to raise awareness about the criminal big banks, foreclosures, and the homeless. It was my first time ever sleeping on city sidewalks, but surrounded by my beautiful brothers and sisters it felt wonderful. <3
Here is an Immediate Need for Justice Reform Action
Alert Regarding — 7650 RESERVOIR ROAD SACRAMENTO CA. 95837-9313 — Warning!
by ~ Rev. A. Odeye
My name is: Rev Ashiya Odeye.
I am a Board member of the Sacramento chapter of the ACLU. I am Executive Director of the Justice Reform Coalition (JRC), a civil rights advocacy and citizens over site organization headquartered in Sacramento, California. The JRC was founded in 2005. I am Reverend Director of the Order of Olufunmi since 1976 I am also acting as a Private Attorney General for our organization and person of interest and intervener in this matter.
For over 37 years the Full Circle Farm (7650 Reservoir Road) has been home to the Chow family and a spiritual center for many people. The Farm’s Founder wanted it so. In his own words: “We the family of the Full Circle Farm have been growers and producers of an alternative to commercial food and culture in the true organic tradition…We care about the quality of life and want to see more than just sugar beets growing on farms.” His son David “Tat” Chow has kept this tradition.
The Farm is a 3.5 acre grove on Reservoir Road, off of Garden Highway, near the airport in Sacramento, California. The Farm sits next to and protects one of the last little natural creek areas in Sacramento County. It also sits next to an area of importance to the local Native American community’s history. It has been under constant attack because greedy people want the land. This includes the Airport authorities and the golf course next door.
David Chow vs U.S. Bank (34-2010-0091102), involves U.S. Bank, American Home Mortgage Service, Inc (AHMSI), BNC, and others, who colluded to commit fraud by filling fraudulent loan documents. Without the consent of the owner and trustee of the property, David Chow, they granted a loan to David’s ex a loan in one week, using the Farm property as collateral. His ex had no standing or permission to use the property for collateral. She then divorced Mr. Chow after using the money to rebuild her business. In the beginning when Mr. Chow tried to return the funds, he couldn’t because AHMSI said he was not on the note, he was not the borrower and they refused to speak with him.
Mr. Chow was forced to make payments on a loan he did not want or need. AHMSI engaged in criminal practices such as sending payments to a “suspense account” instead of applying those payments to the loan account, and refusing to deal with the owner-trustee because he “isn’t the borrower”, even though his property was being used as collateral for a loan he did not authorize or sign for. Then filing an illegal foreclosure on the property that was at the time one and a half months over paid. Then getting a relief from stay by influencing Mr. Chow’s bankruptcy attorney to not inform Mr. Chow of an exparte’ hearing and then not appear herself, which allowed U.S. Bank to get to get a default judgment, relief from stay. Robert Jackson and Associates was U.S. Bank’s second attorney on this matter and were the one’s who filed the unlawful detainer actions and had Rosenberg and link handle the case locally. You will find these law firms’ names on countless foreclosure and evictions by U.S. Bank and others.
Mr. Chow, In Pro Se, filled a civil suit and injunction for fraud against U.S. Bank, which they never responded to. Instead they filed an unlawful detainer actions against Mr. Chow. They were heard illegally in unlawful detainer court. Since there were allegations of fraud and other misconduct , and the unlawful detainer court is a limited scope court, according to its own rules, the cases should not have been heard there. Because of the limited scope of this Court the true issues at hand could not be addressed there and judgment was given to U.S. Bank even though the Court was informed of the civil suit filed by Mr. Chow which is still pending.
In January of 2012 U.S. Bank threatened the Farm with another eviction attempt. This eviction was from an unlawful detainer action filed by U.S. Bank attorney Robert Jackson and Associates who are known legal scoundrels. It appears they did multiple UD filings on the same matter using the new electronic filing system only for attorneys doing UD’s and didn’t serve us one of them. This is double jeopardy and is illegal. This is another area where the Court failed its due diligence.
12UD00600, filed on 1/19/12, is the one we were served, which we responded to on 2/8/12 and they never moved forward on. But they had also filed UD1200055 earlier on 1/3/12 , which we were not served. This is the one they filed and got their default on, on 2/21/12. In order to hide this crime, someone in the Sheriff’s Department had scheduled the eviction for 6am that following Sunday. Can you believe that. We filed an injunction, and when we went to serve the Sheriff, we were told that the Sheriff had pulled the eviction because the “writ was improper”. The injunction was later denied with leave to refile, because we didn’t have all the paperwork we needed to file with it. We plan to re-file the injunction.
U.S. Bank refiled the writ in March and rescheduled the eviction. But Mr. Chow filed a chapter 7 which stayed the eviction. The stay was lifted do to failure to file one document timely. This was purely an over sight on our part. We had served a copy of the injunction on the Bank’s attorneys, and we received a letter that they were no longer the proper place to serve the Bank.
A few weeks later a man, Anthony Vasquez, came by the Farm to say he had purchased the Farm from U.S. Bank for $70,000. Mr. Chow told him that the property was in litigation and had a lis pendence on it. Anthony said he had not been told this by the Bank, only that the property was occupied. He then insisted that he had a “clear” title to the property. He was told that he couldn’t have a clear title under the circumstances because the Bank did not own the property. Mr. Chow asked him to show him the paperwork he had and he said he would. Their paper work consist of robo-doc paperwork generated by out of state entities already charged with fraud.
Chicago Title issued a bogus “clean title” report which was filed with the County Recorder and a title was issued to Vasquez. This is part of the paperwork used to get Mr Chow evicted.
Vasquez was part of a dispensary closed down under suspicion of money laundering .
Vasquez used drug money to purchase the property.
Since the eviction the 11 residents of the Farm have not been allowed to get their property.
They have been threatened verbally and at gun and knife point.
Mr. Chow was assaulted by thugs at the Farm while trying to retrieve his property. They threatened his girlfriend who had just had a miscarriage the day after their eviction.
One of Vasquez’s cronies tried to hire some people to “rough up” Mr. Chow. Fortunately some of the folks asked were friends of Mr. Chow’s so it didn’t happen.
Vasquez and his cronies have ripped out old growth trees and many of the amenities which made the Farm what it was.
Now they have committed arson and burned down the main house on the property. The fire is under investigation now.
There is still a lis pendence on the property.
The State Attorney General’s office has been notified about this situation and the Sacramento District Attorney Real
Estate fraud division is being brought in.
The civil suit mentioned above is being amended to include Mr. Vasquez
