With a new face on the American empire, people are looking to vent their frustration on this icon: but who is truly responsible for creating tyranny and suffering in this world? What government, corporate, and institutional entities are truly responsible for shaping life to be hell on Earth for our “bottom” class of people, and how do they do it?
Answering this question, “who is morally culpable for degrading our world,” is critical for any person’s understanding of where we are at as a species.
Among the many other landmark events that took place in 2016, the United States military dropped a whopping 26,171 bombs in foreign nations. This is hardly good news for those on the receiving end, and as conflict spreads in the Middle East and government pushes for all out war with Russia and China, ordinary Americans, those who foot the war bill with tax money, have some soul-searching to do.
Are the values this nation was founded on best shared with the world through violence and destruction? Has American ingenuity in all matters of science and productivity been eclipsed by out capacity to exert the will of the oligarchy though police actions and indiscriminate bombing? Is there ever a moment when enough is enough, and we admit that bombing people doesn’t create peace or achieve the aspirations of a free and moral people?

This is an excerpt from Chapter 3 of Enlightened Afterlife, my new ebook centered on Spiritualist philosophy on life after death. You can purchase a PDF file of the book at the bottom of this post, or you can check out the Kindle version by clicking the book cover below.
What’s It Like to Die in War?
This section will focus on war and the effect it has on those killed in battle. Despite that the Spiritualist movement isn’t what it once was, the tragedy of war is one reason the movement and the idea of the afterlife are popular today.
This aspect of the discussion will undoubtedly be dark, but there’s a silver lining in that most soldiers discover the same peace, bliss and freedom when it’s all said and done. Trauma and suffering leave so they can begin the process of healing and learn to enjoy their vibrant new surroundings.
As we learned in Chapter 1, the Spiritualist movement regained followers during World Wars I & II due to the mass amounts of people once again losing family to the battlefield. Most of the passages we’ll read in this section are centered on the Civil War and both World Wars but can be applied to the wars of today.

(ANTIMEDIA) What is a fallacy? A fallacy is a false idea that acts as an obstacle, preventing someone from understanding a particular topic. Fallacies are quite often used in arguments as deceptive maneuvers to mislead a person who is attempting to determine truth and make sense of a situation. Within the studies of logic, many of these fallacies are identified and given specific names. This way, someone can more easily spot a misleading idea before it enters their consciousness and becomes a part of their worldview.

Wes: This song from Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers (which is the band Ziggy, Stepen, Cedella and a few others had before they all went solo) asks the essential question: when will justice be found? The elite have gotten away with so much corruption, but their exposure’s inevitable.
In this live performance, Ziggy and the Melody Makers perform ‘Justice’ along with Bob Marley’s famous song ‘War’ before Damian Marley, the rapper of the family, takes the stage and performs his version of ‘Justice’, which is called ‘More Justice’. Those of you who are interested in elite accountability and social change will probably appreciate all three songs. Enjoy!
Recently during a reading with Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love, I asked how to use St. Germaine’s Violet Flame torch practically on my daily walks. This is what Archangel Michael said:
“There is no one particular correct way. Let us start there and certainly St. Germaine will help you but when you are walking along, see that you are carrying the Torch of Freedom, the purple flame torch in either your left or right hand, it matters not, but so that you can be comfortable and not get tired. No, you don’t need to hold it shoulder high or above your head but in your mind’s eye you are doing this – or actually!
