Death in June
In an interview with Death in June regarding their last album 'A Peaceful Snow', Douglas P. mentions Charles Manson and ATWA:
'' Some are beyond redemption – and illumination. They truly walk the track of the hunted strewn with mines and booby traps of their own making and I look forward to watching them become ever more crippled and disabled. Dogs of the lowest order eating their own shit don’t deserve any photos. Certainly it’s not something I’d like to see in public. Does anyone? The lying, deceitful, coarse and vulgar display themselves for what they truly are so don’t need any help from me. Charlie Manson would ‘X’ people from his Life which, as history has shown, was very effective. Besides ATWA it was another good idea of his. Charlie certainly had a few.'' 
- Douglas P., Death in June
Thanks to Douglas for mentioning ATWA and for decades of devotion to his music and vision.
That's all for November, we welcome in December as Autumn turns to Winter.

Humans A.D.

What if the Human race vanished? What would happen to the Earth?

No Surrender

The truth is honor, and honor is the truth. Without either, you're both in trouble...

They've lost that. I haven't lost mine, I just haven't surrendered. I'm standing here in 1944. They say the war's over, but I don't believe it. No one told me it was over. No one that was in the truth told me it was over. All the liars went down the road and said it was over, but no one that I knew that was telling me the truth said it was over. So I guess it's not over, as far as I'm concerned... you've got to start all over, see? And in starting all over, you see that other people started all over. 

Survival is the center in the vortex of justice. So to serve survival, we must start all over, and take stock on all the graveyards, and look at why have we been fighting all these years? What have we been struggling for? They always cover it up, and never let us really know what the problem is. They'll cover it up with all kinds of confusion, and never let the children know what's really going on. They just buy and sell their blood, and the United States won't even give their own children the benefit of their own rights which their fathers fought for and the graveyards are filled with our fathers and our brothers and all the veterans and people who fought for us, and then when we come back, our government doesn't appreciate it. They don't have any gratitude at all. all they do is buy and sell us on the other end - we've got not voice, the people have got no voice. The government is supposed to be 'We the People', but it's not 'We the People'; the government has already been bought and sold. They've already sold our government. 

The only chance we've got at survival is to pick back up the same thoughts that our fathers had and raise it up from the grave - change the guards. Change the guns. stand the men up to attention again, put them out in the field of honor, and start all over again. It's like a cake that you've got, that's turned bad. you've got to cut some of it off the edge, so, which edge are you going to cut? You've got to cut the edge that's holding the deception, that's holding the lies, that's holding the confusion, that's holding the brainwash. 

Any man, any person, with any mind, at all, if you break it all down and boil it all down -- what does it all boil down to? The people that are rolling your money. The people that are controlling your money. The people that are controlling your media. The people that are controlling your music. The people that are controlling yours books, your mind, your legal perspectives. They're in control of your judges. They're in control of your courts. They're in control of your lawyers. They're in control of your mind. They're charging you rent to live in your own brain... in other words, like, you're all dead. 

The only thing that's worth anything is the graveyard. The graveyard is the only thing that's worth a fuck. the rest of it is a bunch of horseshit. Where's our rights? Where's our honor? Where's our world? I got it, down here at the bottom. There's nobody home. The light's on. The radio's playing, but it's still playing - I could still hear 1944 - I could still hear 1943. Nothing's changed. Not in my world. It's still now - and the same now that was now in the battlefields, and laying in the graveyards, so go over in the graves and pick your now up. Pick your battlefield up. Pick your army up. Pick your MAC up. Pick your names up. I haven't got any aspirations, but I know. I see. I'm aware. I understand what God is, and I know he lives in man. But if you don't wake up pretty soon, there's going to be nothing left to wake up to.

A Prisoner of War: To Every Man That Has a Mind

Charles Manson being interviewed in handcuffs by the BBC in 1991. Manson used this platform to speak to the world, giving more information and insight then was generally common in interviews with media in the United States. The statement found in this interview and transcribed below regarding the Nuremberg trials in which 6000 German soldiers were hanged for obeying orders. Shortly after this interview Manson and others close to him cut off the media, rejecting all requests for interviews.  Please listen to 5:44 onward, his words spoken off the cuff ring true to the aware and defiant. 

''I want to say this to every man that has a mind, 

to all the intelligent life forms that exist on this planet Earth. 

I wish really to say this to the Scottish Rites, and the Masons and all the people with minds who have degrees of knowledge and are aware of courts, laws, United Nations, governments. 

In the Forties we had a war. And all of our economies went towards this war effort. The war ended, on one level, but we wouldn't let it end on the other levels. We kept buying and selling this war. I'm not locked in a penitentiary for crimes, I'm locked in the Second World War. I'm locked in the Second World War with this decision to bring to the world court, there must be one world court, or we're all going to be devoured by crime. Crime, and the definition of crime, comes from Nuremberg, when the judges decided that they wanted to call Second World War a crime. Honor and war is not a crime. When you go to war and you're a soldier and you fight for your god and your country, that's not criminal. That's honorable. That's what you must do to be a man. If you don't fight for your god and your country, you're not worth anything. If you have no honor, then you're not worth Patty's pig. Truth is, we've got to overturn the decision that you made in the Second World War, or the Second World War will never end. Decrees of the war were written in Switzerland, in Geneva, the conferences that were made, by the men at the tables, clearly stated that anyone in uniform would be given the respect of their rank and their uniforms. Then, when the United States won the war, and got all the Germans in handcuffs, they started breaking their own rules. And they've been breaking their own rules ever since. 

War is not a crime. But if you judge war as a crime, from a court room, then turn around. If two and three is five, then three and two is five. If you say war is a crime, then crime becomes your war. I am, by all standards, a prisoner of war. I have been a prisoner of war since 1944, in juvenile hall, for setting the school building on fire in Indianapolis, Indiana. I've been locked up 45 years trying to figure out how I got to be a criminal. It matters not whether I want to be.... You've got to keep criminals going to keep the war going because that's the economy. Your whole economy is based on war. You've got to get your dollar bills off the war, you got to take your silver markets sterling off the war. You've got to take your gold and your diamonds off the war. You've got to overturn that decision that hung six thousand men by the neck. You killed six thousand soldiers for obeying orders. That's wrong, and the world has got to accept they're wrong. If you accept you're wrong, and you say you're sorry for all the things you've done, then I'll be a note in that chord, and maybe we can get some harmony going on this planet earth now.'' - Charles Manson

Charles Manson, BBC Interview
 I'm not easily stirred, emotionally... But I could not watch this without feeling all this intensity in my soul. Some footage is just more powerful than others, in terms of what it communicates, and how it resonates. It's not exactly sadness or anger or anything one can so easily classify, though it is this and so much more. Words just fall short. It's the same thing I feel when I see a wild creature locked down in a cage, or how it would've felt to witness any good man or woman throughout the whole of human history be condemned to death by a court of infinite inferiors. 

We know in our hearts that it steals nothing from majesty, since that realm is greater than the transient rule of these petty, pitiful, lifeless accusers, but it's the strange, deeply pronounced feeling of being-in-time. Like, if you can't step back from the moment, it's so overwhelming, because we see ourselves in these words here and we see alikin in those shackles if ever there was. We know that we're the world he's communicating to, and not this tomb called society. We feel it, because we are it. It's here and we're there. There is no separation. It's not a new feeling, but it's just so hard to watch him in that kind of situation without tearing up... sensing his determination, in spite of all worldly frustrations... watching how this King can't even sweep his hair out of his eyes,for he sits with his hands chained.

 It is impossible not to consider how the average, low-intelligence viewer would interpret it all -- and knowing that this distorted vision is precisely how the crooked media-money-minds intended it. It's like nobility and innocence in a pillory. The nastiest devils sit gawking and throwing stones at harmonic projections of the Absolute. It's hard to watch without a shift in pulse, because in watching, you almost feel like audience to that crime, and we want nothing of it, and we want to intervene directly, and set our lives against that entire current. I can see where the X came from -- and I know why it grew angled rays. - Vitholf
