Call to Action: The Spectre of Social Unrest in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

At the level of the borderline poverty working family in Los Angeles today, there is a yearning for home ownership that is part and parcel of the American dream. Yet because of the high entry bar to home ownership, few blue collar working families can hope to achieve this dream.

This gives rise to hopelessness regarding the American way of life, for masses of people who feel that home ownership will be forever beyond their grasp. It is just such feelings of hopelessness that cause lack of faith in the American way of life, and can promulgate social unrest; even thoughts of revolution and of more even distribution of property through Communism.

Social unrest threatens those who own homes, those who have higher paying jobs, and those who offer employment here in Los Angeles. Thus it is in the best interests of those of us who have vested interests in this city, to offer hope to Los Angeles families who are economically less advantaged, whether they be renters of apartments or of rooms.

Here are two cost-effective ways to mitigate the spectre of social unrest in Los Angeles …

  • For borderline poverty working families who are renters, Los Angeles might offer apartment buildings with a ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ option. This option might be promoted through a State of California or local tax credit to apartment building owners.
  • In addition we could offer a Los Angeles or California monthly lottery prize of a home, so that the American dream of home ownership might be laid out and monthly publicized as a possibility, even for those who are as yet unable to obtain ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ housing.

I feel these two proposals, which are relatively inexpensive and might easily be embarked upon, would appeal to both the inchoate yearning and the realistic plans of Los Angeles families who hope for home ownership … and that they would do so in a manner both concrete and newsworthy.

It is the American dream of home ownership that keeps us strong as a people. No family among us that has the heart to work and to contribute to our community, ought suffer despondency in this regard. Let us raise high the standard of hope for a better tomorrow, for the sake of this great city we all … whether propertied or as yet renting … love and cherish.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

On Noticing Terrorist Actions by Ultra Right and Ultra Left . by Alice B. Clagett

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCED NEWS REPORTING IN MITIGATING HATE CRIMES AND TERRORIST ACTS
  • HATE CRIMES IN LOS ANGELES
    • Extreme Right Hate Crimes
    • Extreme Left Hate Crimes

Dear Ones,

I read up on hate crimes in a Los Angeles Police Department resource pamphlet I found at the table in front of the LAPD TownHall – Valley Bureau in Canoga Park on 27 March 2019. The information in the pamphlet was quite similar to that here …

Link: “Hate Crime Circular,” by the Los Angeles Police Department … http://www.lapdonline.org/crime_prevention/content_basic_view/8808 ..

On the topic of hate crimes, I have some thoughts  that are pertinent not only to the City of Los Angeles, but also to big cities all over America, I feel.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCED NEWS REPORTING IN MITIGATING HATE CRIMES AND TERRORIST ACTS

I note at the outset my concern that the mass media sometimes qualify hate crimes as ‘terrorist activities’ and sometimes not … depending, I feel, on the popularity, in the public eye, of the class of people that are being terrorized.

To my own mind, hatred of any group of people can lead to domestic ‘terrorist’ activities. I have the hope that national organizations such as Homeland Security are taking into account that cultures, nationalities, and religions that Americans look upon with a jaundiced eye, might more likely be the victims of hate crimes than might those cultures, nationalities, and religions that Americans look upon with favor, or with pity, as being the victims of hate crimes in years gone by.

HATE CRIMES IN LOS ANGELES

What with the economic problems here in the City of Los Angeles, I feel that many people are feeling more fearful of the changing times than in years past.

Extreme Right Hate Crimes

When property owners (such as myself) and business owners are faced with issues of homeless camping here and there, mail thefts, and home invasions, I feel there is a greater chance of extreme right terrorist activities … what you might call ultra conservative hate crimes … taking place.

Extreme Left Hate Crimes

Extreme Left For the disadvantaged, including rehabbed felons and unhomed, as well as for those amongst Angelenos (of whatever culture or ideology) who are very idealistic, the possibility arises, in times of change, that extreme left terrorist activities … say, fascist or revolutionary notions … might surface.

My concern is this: That the Los Angeles Police Department will be on the lookout for both sorts of hate crimes: extreme right, and extreme left? I feel that the moderate, middle path to solving the problems Los Angeles faces in the present day will surely help keep our city healthy and hopeful of a good tomorrow.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Soothing Prospective Social Unrest in America: Historic Land Grants as a Wealth Distribution Model . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This blog is about ways to soothe social unrest and improve our urban environments through land distribution. The information in green font below is not mentioned in the video …

  • After Columbus discovered America, the problem of unrest among younger sons of nobility was solved in England by offering them land grants to plantations on the East Coast of America. This was also a way of redistributing wealth and creating new wealth.
  • How this may apply to unrest among those of no means in America’s large cities, with regard to possible redistribution of Government Lands, for instance, lands owned by the Bureau of Land Management. It is possible the railroads are holding more lands as a result of original land grants to them to entice them to build railroads across the United States, and that these lands might, through whatever modus, offer an avenue of wealth redistribution in the United States.
  • Stepping up the United States land redistribution process might solve a number of problems:
    • It might mitigate discomfort among the very wealthy here in America, regarding the potential for social unrest among the urban poor.
    • It might offer a program that would foster the principles of hard work to provide for oneself a bright future, which has proven very effective in strengthening the moral fabric of America in times past.
    • The ideals of sustainable living might be fostered in the newly distributed lands.
    • A decrease in crowdedness of our large cities might give a financial boost to overworked community services, by removing the lower per capita income households from the cities and decreasing crowdedness.
    • And the resultant improvement in per capita urban income might improve public services coffers … for example, those of law enforcement, fire department, water, power, street cleaning and trash collection. Funds from relief of demand for public services might be channeled into urban renewal, with reinstitution of city street paving and sidewalk repair (of which there has for some years been a negligible amount ongoing in Los Angeles, for instance), better public transportation, less commute congestion, more urban green spaces, and urban wildlife transportation corridors.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I had a few more thoughts on the days of yore as compared to current times, that I thought I would share with you. It has to do with ways to soothe social unrest and ways to solve problems of distribution of wealth; very practical notions.

A long, long time ago, soon after Columbus discovered America, the royalty of England found a use for that continent that did not have to do with finding gold. In those days there were nobility in England that had many children. Some of those children had lands and means. But the youngest sons typically had none.

So there was a problem there, with regard to the youngest sons of nobility, because they were restless, and they wanted abundance. They wanted means, and they did not have them. They posed a potential threat to the ruling powers of England.

So the notion that was ingeniously concocted by the ruling powers was to send the youngest sons of the nobility, with a land grant, to the East Coast of America. They would then become landed gentry, and they would establish plantations and create their own wealth for themselves. Furthermore, they would be very far from the ruling powers of England; hence, unable to cause trouble.

So this was a manner of distribution of wealth, and a way of creating new wealth, for those who had none, in England. And this applies today … in a different format; but there is the same difficulty today in what is now the United States.

In the large cities, there are numbers of restless people who, for whatever reason, have nothing. I would not blame it on the problem that is termed the ‘immigrant problem’, which is part of the worldwide wealth and abundance creation problem that remains to be solved on New Earth.

I would not term it the ‘immigrant problem’, because there are many people in the large cities of America today who are not immigrants … and many also who are immigrants … who have nothing. In other words, there is a very large class of people who are very, very poor.

These people pose a problem to the ruling elite of America. Here in America, the ruling elite comprises not kings and queens, and not the United States government. What it is, is the very wealthy, the heads of corporations, and that sort; the people who have most of the wealth.

The entertainment industry, for instance, has some very wealthy people. And there is old wealth here too, I feel. So there are a few people that have a lot of money, and who are threatened by the people in the cities who have nothing at all.

I have a proposal; I ask that you just take a look at this notion: We have in the United States a huge amount of land that is held by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as the result of an old deal that took place between the railroad companies and the government, for the development of railroads across the United States, so as to connect the East Coast with the West Coast.

Technically, this land belongs to the Bureau of Land Management; but today, I would propose that some compensation might be made to them for this land, and that an offering might be made, of free or inexpensive land, to these people who are in the large cities, and might relocate to an environment of sustainable living in the BLM lands.

What would happen, then, is that those that have great wealth, in the cities, would gain some measure of security against social unrest. And it would be a double win, because those who have nothing would then have something.

In a manner of speaking, it is a conceivable method of redistributing wealth. So, something to look at. I am sure there are other notions too; but this, I feel, is a very intriguing notion.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This is about the two tenets of life on this planet: Free Will and the All. Also discussed: Having a ‘masterplan’. Does the end justify the means? There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I would just like to talk to you a little bit today about the two tenets of life on this planet, which are: Free will and the All. Starting with free will …

Free Will on Planet Earth

One of the most interesting features of this planet … because of the 11,000-year intervals that it spends not within the Photon Belt of the Pleiades … is the diversity of choices that are available here because of the Soul wounding that occurs; the closing down of the axiatonal lines of Light; the tangles that develop in the Body of Light; inability to connect with the Star Library in Alpha Centauri; and a general disconnect from our star brethren of many different civilizations and cultures, that leads us to a foreshortened notion of history, and of our choices during these long Ages of Darkness, from one of which we have just emerged.

We have these many choices, basically based on what Patanjali calls Soul ignorance. So something may look very good to us, as a choice, and in fact lead us away from an understanding of our Soul purpose and our Soul wisdom. It may lead us out of alignment with God, and with the All (which I will be discussing in a minute). This happens because we have free will.

There are beings that settled on this planet that further the possibilities of Duality during the Dark Ages. They do not do well here during the Ages of Light; my understanding is that they are shunted off to astral negative worlds and planets in other constellations during the times of Light. But they are here for a purpose during the times of Light; and that is to increase the possibility of Soul learning through duality.

Angel on One Shoulder, and Devil on the Other? You may have seen those pictures of people with an angel on one shoulder and a little devil on the other shoulder, each whispering into one of the person’s ears, of which this image is reminiscent …

Diversity of Life on Earth. That is just a visualization of the choices available through duality. But it also has within it the two different types of beings that are here on Earth. We have the Angelic Realm … and the Devic Realm is part of that. The nature spirits are part of the Angelic Realm as well; although they comprise a separate, very varied, Devic Kingdom.

Then we have the ifrits and the jinn; and the demon world. All of those are based on the notion of power over others. It can be very compelling, very interesting to choose that, because it seems that, in the short run, there is something really important in it. And so, people do make those choices during the Ages of Darkness.

Ascension Casts Our Free Will Choices in Stark Relief. Right now they are emerging from that. One of the features of the Ascension process … the Ascension into the Age of Light … is that the choice between Dark and Light becomes much more dramatic. There is a purpose for that: It is so that it will become very apparent to people that they have that choice. And so, people will be choosing either something very dramatic, like serial killing or suicide, or all kinds of things that would before have been completely impossible for them to think of, or they will be very strongly choosing alignment with the Divine. That is because nothing is definite right now; everything is in process, in flux. And a kind of mental chaos is occurring all over Earth, as people come back into their powers and their Ascension skills, and begin to realize that they are one with everything.

So these choices are available: We can choose to go off-world, to astral negative planets, along with the Demon Realm, which is there to help us make these decisions and choices, along with the Angelic Realm. Or we can choose to stay on Ascended Earth, and that is a completely different choice.

Note well: These are ideational choices … to do with astral or dreamtime stories that will be co-creating the New Reality. In almost every instance, they are not about ‘acting out’ these themes in the physical world.

Consequentialism: The Notion That the Ends Justify the Means. One of the things that is coming up right now, has to do with this free will choice. It has to do with the notion … kind of a Himler or Hitler notion … that the ends justify the means. Remember, Hitler had a very beautiful notion about a master race on Earth … about a master plan, and how everything was going to be better because he was going to eliminate all the bad things. And he was going to do that through killing people that he thought were inferior.

This thought that the ends justify the means is something to consider, because we confront it every day, in our daily lives. I will say to somebody: It would be even better if you lived in the country.

And they will say: I can’t because I have to make a living!

And this is just one example of the constant ‘I can’ts’ and ‘I won’ts’ that do not allow people to accumulate more Light. Instead, they want to accumulate more Darkness. It depends on the person … some people are fine in the city.

Do the ends justify the means? What is it that we really want? Do we want to accomplish our Soul mission, and follow our Soul purpose? Or do we want to do something for ourselves, for our family, that will not allow us live to our highest Light?

Is it worth it, say, to do something extremely bad, like what happened in the concentration camps, and is happening in many places, right now, because of the Ascension process?

Is it ok to do that, if it justifies some high cause, such as keeping someone alive that we really love, for instance … because prices are really high right now.

Or is it ok to do that kind of work because we have to pay the rent, and rents are very high? You know? … the kind of work that tears down other people’s good, or competes with other people, instead of bringing on harmony of the Universe … that kind of work.

Choices: Service to Self, Service to Ingroup; Service to the World. Are we willing to injure other people so that our ingroup can be ok? Well in past ages, in the Age of Darkness, the answer was definitely ‘yes’. The answer was: The people in my family are more important than anyone else in the worldThe people in my village will help support me against the barbarian hordes, and I will help them out too … Like that, right?

And people that were considered to be the outgroup, in the old days did not even have a chance. You sacrificed the outgroup; you kept the ingroup. And the concept of in-or-outgroup was the thing you really cared about.

The history of kings, in Europe, is a saga about that. Even in their own families they would kill, just to maintain their own personal highest welfare … Killed their brothers and sisters over and over again, so that there would be no contenders for the throne.

This is an extreme example of free will, and choosing on the basis, not of society or civilization, or the upliftment of the world, but instead, choosing only for oneself.

Life Review. I am asking you to look at that today: How is your life being lived? What is it that you truly want? Do you want to align with God? Or do you want to take on a purpose that has to do with your personal desires and needs, or those of your family, or those of someone that you really cherish; and do you want to just say: To heck with what society teaches about getting along with other people … about things like the Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife … and all those things like that; those things that were hammered out in the old, tribal days, as ways for society to continue onward.

What is it that you really want? Do you want the ends to be more important than the means? Or do you want the harmony of the All?

The All and the Eternal Now

There Is No Ingroup. And so now we are coming down to the harmony of the All. That has to do with ingroup – outgroup, and the way that we think about the world. As it turns out, there is no ingroup; there is no outgroup. There is no special treatment for people that are very rich, or very powerful, or who think very well of themselves for no particular reason at all.

Ascension Skills: True Compassion. Here in the noosphere we feel in our own physical bodies, as the Ascension proceeds, the suffering, the anguish of what was once called the ‘huddled masses’; of the people in prison; of the people who are dying in hospitals; of the newborn children, who do not yet know where or what is going on.

We are that. This is an Ascension skill that will change everyone’s mind about ingroups and outgroups, and the means and the ends. We are that. And far more than these beings known as humankind, in this colony called Earth.

Interspecies Communication. There are many other peoples here. There are many other beings here: Four-footed, two-footed, and feathered beings; all kinds of beings, here on Earth. And there are many more beings amongst the stars, and amongst our ancestors, and in our future kin, all of which are One, in the Eternal Now, which is the All.

Enough lectures! [waves] You all take care. Love you lots.

Dear Ones,

This video is about corporate ethics, and corporate responsibility to the global welfare. There is a description of the early decision to form the United States government with a Senate (representing plutocracy, or government by the wealthy) and the House of Representatives (representing ‘the common man’). The video is about how this model might be applied to corporate governance for the greater global good.

A ‘what if’ is also presented regarding putative corporate ownership of alternate energy patents, the contentious issue of fracking, and the common global good. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I had some thoughts today about corporate ethics, and corporate responsibility to the global welfare, that I would like to share with you, just by way of one avenue of approach (of which there are many).

I was thinking about how much power the global corporations have right now, in the world; and how, quite frequently they see their responsibility to be to their shareholders, and to their Boards, and to their presidents, rather than to the global good.

So the issue that I see right now is that, in some contexts at least, the corporations are striving for the good of a small group of people, rather than for the good of the world; and in my opinion, the good of the world is very important as well.

Early United States Decisions on Governance

I thought back to the early history of the United States … about how they were figuring out about governance; how they would set up the governance of the United States. And back then … back in the old days … there was a somewhat parallel situation.

And that had to do with the great landholders of that era … of which George Washington, for instance, was one … as opposed to all the other people (actually, at that time, only all the other men in the original colonies) … and who would govern.

And so naturally, the people that had most of the land were the ones that wanted to take control of the government of the United States. But there was also popular opinion to consider. And so what finally got hammered out was the Senate and the House of Representatives … two different governing bodies.

The Senate originally was more oriented towards the landholders. And the House of Representatives was more oriented toward the common man. And so, in the governance of the United States, was hammered out an agreement that took into consideration both wealth and the free will of all the people (all the men, in that case) in the United States at that time.

Might the Bicameral Model Be Useful in the Ethical Governance of Corporations?

My question is whether this model could be used in the ethical governance of corporations. In this instance the ‘Senate’ would be the board of directors of a corporation, the president, and the shareholders.

And since these corporations are global, by proportionate gross domestic product, I think that the members of each nation would also be able to participate in the governance of corporations, in some fashion.

This is just an idea that I am throwing out there; this is a thought I have, of ways to help corporations come into a new understanding of their ethical responsibility with regard to the world.

A ‘What If’ Regarding Alternative Energy

And along those lines, I will just give you a ‘for instance’ … which I do not know to be true or note true … I will just give you a ‘what if’. What if the oil corporations, or the transport corporation … some sector of corporations … or maybe all the corporations in every economic sector, for all I know … had bought out all the patents on alternate energy that were totally viable. Suppose they had done that.

And suppose this issue that is so controversial in this State of Colorado … this issue of fracking, which is, according to some of the landholders, is ruining the well water of the ranches and farms and so forth … this issue of extracting the last dollar of profit out of oil, before oil is completely depleted from the globe, could be alleviated by simply setting forth the patents of alternate energy that are available, but ‘locked up’ by the corporations …

Could this be true, that they are doing that? If it were true, then they would be acting against the common interests globally.

This is just a ‘what if’. This is the kind of ‘what if’ that we might be looking at, in all the different sectors, and all the different corporations, to see how we could come to terms with the profit motive, as compared to the ethical motive of uplifting and sustaining humankind.

Well, that is all I have for you today. I wish you all … whether or not you are in business … the greatest opportunity for harmony and love and prosperity that is possible in the world today. Bye bye.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Postscript on More Democratic Global Alternatives

And then I am thinking … just paying attention to how, in the United States at first, it was men that had the right to vote … and later on, women had the right to vote … and so there was a loosening up, into a greater form of democracy in that way …

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) model, as a weighting factor for the voice of each nation in the corporate bicameral scheme, would weight corporate ethical considerations in favor of developed countries, which more likely also have the most corporate shareholders.

It could be that GDP model would be amended, later on, to national population, as a weighting factor for the voice of each nation in the corporate bicameral scheme … so that greater plebeian or democratic base for the global welfare aspect of corporate responsibility.

And so at that point … where the census of a nation came into play … it would place the responsibility less in the hands of people that have enough money to be shareholders, and more into the hands of the people that are in desperate need of housing and livelihood and clean water and so forth.

I believe that would greatly facilitate moving into world harmony.
