Full Circle Farm is a beautiful ~3 acre property in north Sacramento OWNED by David “Tat” Chow where he has lived nearly his whole life. A community garden with budding fruits and veggies is/was thriving with several farm animals and hard-working and passionate people.
Despite the ongoing legal debate on the property’s ownership, U.S. Bank auctioned the property to Anthony Vasquez (aka Richard Vasquez) for the giveaway price of $85,000 (including taxes and fees). Upon visiting the farm, he explained to me that he just intended to flip the property for a profit…clearly a noble cause compared to our occupied community garden. Vasquez could have joined Tat’s lawsuit against U.S. Bank, but chose not to. Tat offered Vasquez $120,000 — then $150,000 — so he could buy the property again, but those offers were denied. Vasquez has already listed the property hoping for a quick sale asking $300,000 and describing “an opportunity to steal a lot”.
Didn’t you hear about the rEVOLution? That kind of greed is so 20th century.
Tat’s legal proceedings continue, which he has been fighting Pro Se (without a real lawyer) with the help of the Justice Reform Coalition. But Mr. Vasquez was able to get the Sheriff’s department to evict Tat and the rest of us on June 13th without advance notice.
Three months ago, I moved to Full Circle Farm when some participants of Occupy Sacramento were joining to help prevent the illegal foreclosure of Tat’s land, and grow organic (hopefully non-GMO) fruits and vegetables. The simple agricultural act is political both in helping feed ourselves healthy food and helping feed to those less fortunate than us living on the street. Some of our other roommates include a retired Vietnam veteran and an anti-war veteran of the Iraq War (2003).
Dear Mr. Vasquez and crew, please join us in our lawsuit against US Bank or give the property back to Tat…instead of trying to remove our community from this land. At least let us feed and water the animals and plants we care for on the farm. We all want and expect to move back into Full Circle Farm.
The Objective: To bring local awareness to the corporation Monsanto’s control and involvement with the toxins in our food and water supplies and the ties they have in the government. We must start acting locally and thinking globally to bring down this tyrant of the food industry. We are in worldwide solidarity with the Millions Against Monsanto (www.MillionsAgainstMonsanto.org) and several other groups, organizations, foundations, and individuals who feel that something must be done to stop the evil practices of the Monsanto Corporation.
“Corporations are Not People and Money Is not free speech”
The Goal: To unite local communities, as consumers, voters and organizers to continue the push to remove Monsanto and other Corrupt Corporations from our government. Along with other campaigns all over the globe to create a world governed for, of, and by the people, not the corporations. One tactic is to strategize and take action utilizing the power of the Boycott to send a strong message we will not do business with Corrupt Corporations. We are urging for monthly and biweekly protests; Workshops, teach-ins, film showings; Canvassing, flyering, training organizers, and recruiting more people to the peaceful fight.

We are stuck in a truly epic saga between “good and evil”, but almost all sides believe they work for some greater good…so I am searching for perspectives beyond what we know, and fresh chess moves on the grand board. I’m generally trying to avoid one-dimensional analysis where discussions get a severe bipolar disorder. Nonetheless, these battles might be best reduced to transparency against secrecy.
Many of us see true beauty in all of humanity and want to minimize oppression, while unlocking and unleashing the inner passion and genius inside of each and every one of us. But very clearly, there exist those who consciously seek to mold humans into sheeple, even cattle, treating the masses with great contempt, both publicly and privately, both with words and laws.
Open source software is really built by communities of end-users, so on a long enough time-scale, these solutions better meet the needs of these end-users. And they are also not built to break a few months after a warranty expires. The level of bottom-up collaboration humans have achieved in Wikipedia alone is wildly impressive, but it is only the first step. I want to see almost EVERY industry start trending much faster towards open source domination.
You might have seen some TED talks, where many very powerful solutions are presented to some of the world’s most urgent problems. One key way I envision us surviving here is if some of those technologies of a certain societal significance are not made patentable, but instead made free for reuse and remix under open source or creative commons licensing. Such open source blueprints will be translated into languages and materials of people around the world.
We urgently need to replace greed with collaboration for sustainable energy, food and water technologies. These will all inevitably be issues of life and death for our species on this planet…or anywhere we travel. So screw trinket capitalism, boycott it! And why build up a police state instead of preventing these inevitable crises. Let’s replace the CIA and privatized/corporate intelligence with open source intelligence.
What If we had British Petroleum and General Motors give up any and all intellectual property rights related to alternative energy creation, storage and usage…and then re-released it under some kind of Open Source/Creative Commons license? Don’t they both owe us enough?
We do not go along with solutions A or B: both promoted, bought and paid for by the same set of corporate interests with the most hide or gain. Campaign finance reform is an absolute LYNCHPIN which could open up countless legislative avenues for us, but the Supreme Court sure hasn’t been helping there. Therefore, we really need to step it up and start focusing more on voting DAILY with our dollars to de-fund the mega-corporations which own our governments.
At this point in my studies of various slivers of the world, the only solutions I can consistently support are open source and/or increase transparency. It is for this reason that I’m naming this growing counter-force to oppression, the ‘Wiki World Order.’ Infinitely boosted by the internet, this global movement has already taught me a great deal, collaboratively shedding light on the darkest of blind spots and promoting solutions from the bottom-up.
BUT my time and perspective cannot report on this progress alone, it is collaborative by definition. So just in case any one of YOU out there want to start a little web-base show on related issues, you are free to reuse and remix my episode template graphics and music (please see link in video notes). Anyone can upload their own reports to You Tube and email the link for the video and/or podcast or blog/transcript to reports~AT~WikiWorldOrder.org, and I will be happy re-post all your work on WikiWorldOrder.org. I welcome you to this experiment, and a huge Thank You in advance to anyone who takes me up on this offer, or even lends their ear to this Morgan’s random ideas.
But to avoid getting too heavy in my first episode, I will leave you with these quotes used in the theme song in the background, “And You’ve Got To Let Freedom Ring,” which is based on some of my favorite tasty beats by Alex Gopher, Demon and Squarepusher.
“There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part. And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus. And you’ve got to make it stop, and you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all.” – Mario Savio: Sproul Hall Steps, December 2, 1964 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcx9BJRadfw
“Let freedom ring. And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring. From the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring.” – Martin Luther King Jr: I Have a Dream speech, August 28, 1963 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEMXaTktUfA
“I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the streets. All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad! You’ve got to say, I’m a human being, goddamn it! My life has value!” – Peter Finch in Network (MGM, 1976) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90ELleCQvew
“Well up next on world business today, you may not have heard of it, but some say Bilderberg is secretly trying to take over the world. We’re trying to find out why some of the biggest names in business and politics are currently meeting very discretely in Germany.”
– Charles Hodson, CNN: Bilderberg Group News Report, 2007? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I3sqpRtKUA
“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant, in a free and open society.”
– John F Kennedy: Secret Societies speech,
American Newspaper Publishers Association,
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City, April 27, 1961 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhZk8ronces
“In other news, LeBron James is moving to Florida to play for the Miami Heat, and that fact will not affect your life in any way.”

“So of the various kinds of state capitalism that are around, which are the best? I don’t honestly think that’s the kind of question we should be asking. Like in the 18 — Suppose you’re in the 18th century, should you be asking ‘Which is the best kind of feudalism?’ I mean that’s all it was. So which is the best kind of feudalism, and slavery and monarchy and so and and so forth? That just wasn’t the right question. I mean the right question is, ‘Is there something better, like say, parliamentary democracy?’ Even there were no examples of it.”

“But today we might better look at geopolitics in the world as the same globe with roughly 200 countries and huge clouds drifting around it, knowing no national borders, following no specific sets of laws. These are the big corporations. They strike deals with the Chinese, and the Taiwanese, and the Tibetans, and the Israelis and the Arab nations. They strike deals with anybody who has resources or markets that they covet. And they have really taken over the planet. They are calling the shots. Wherever you go, the big corporations are calling the shots, make no mistake about it. And the good news is, that the big corporations are totally dependent on you — or your tax dollars. They can’t survive without you. And the marketplace is democratic, if we only choose to make it such.”
“Every time you buy something, or don’t, you’re casting vote. And it’s a very important vote, in fact, I would dare say it’s equally important as or maybe more important than any vote in the voting polls.”
“Let’s change this world! Let’s create a sustainable, just and peaceful world! Let’s not just talk about it, let’s not just look at movies about it, let’s not just theorize about it, LET’S DO IT!”
“This empire has been created without most of us realizing that it’s been happening, and I think that’s extremely dangerous. We claim to be a democracy, and yet a democracy is built on the premise that you have an informed electorate.”
“..he can’t possibly hope to inherit a sustainable, just and peaceful world unless every child growing up in Botswana and Bolivia and Indonesia and Palestine AND Israel has that same expectation. We MUST realize this. We have to understand that we can’t have homeland security here, until we recognize that the whole planet is our homeland. We are truly one people.”
“We know there are conspiracies. There was a conspiracy to keep us all in the dark about weapons of mass destruction.”
