    Behind the Headlines: Historical Revisionism in the 20th and 21st centuries

    in News

    Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred. 


    Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.


    The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.


    The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.


    Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany. 


    So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?


    Behind the Headlines airs live this Sunday, 08 March 2015, from 3-5pm EST / 12pm-2pm PST / 7-9pm UTC / 8-10pm CET.

    Talk with historical fiction writer, Ed Protzel

    in Spirituality

    Ed earned his master’s degrees in English literature/creative writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and his bachelor's in English at the University of Hawaii-West Oahu.


    Ed had a dual career for over twenty years, working as an investments advisory manager for Fortune 100 firms, including Well Fargo Advisors, Met Life, and Merrill Lynch, while writing screenplays and novels. He was a whistleblower against a corrupt commodities futures brokerage in a case documented in the Wall Street Journal.


    Ed’s expertise as a novelist and screenwriter is in the American tragicomedy movement (Faulkner, Twain, Tennessee Williams, Flannery O'Connor), science fiction, Shakespeare, and a variety of historical periods, including World War II, the American Civil War, and Fourteenth Century Europe.


    The final two novels of The Lies that Bind trilogy include the same major characters as the original: Honor Among Outcasts, set in Missouri during the transition from the Civil War to a violent reconstruction, and Something in Madness, set in California as Durksen and Antoinette become the tumultuous state’s embattled first couple.


    Ed’s other novel-in-progress is The Antiquities Dealer, a genre-stretching, ostensible mystery/thriller about a Jewish gallery owner drawn by his former lover into a scheme to clone the great minds of history—purportedly beginning with Jesus Christ. Millennial religion, futuristic biotechnology, and human evolution collide in a cauldron peopled by a TV evangelist, a former NFL tackle, Middle East conspiracies, and radicals of major religions.


    Ed is married and lives in St. Louis, where he writes full time and teaches college English.

    About the book:


    1348. A bone-sculpted angel and the woman who wears it––heretic, Devil’s servant, saint. 
    Midwife Héloïse has always known that her bastard status threatens her standing in the French village of Lucie-sur-Vionne. Yet her midwifery and healing skills have gained the people’s respect, and she has won the heart of the handsome Raoul Stonemason. The future looks hopeful. Until the Black Death sweeps into France. 

    Terrified that Héloïse will bring the pestilence into their cottage, Raoul forbids her to treat its victims. Amidst the grief and hysteria, the villagers searching for a scapegoat, Héloïse must choose: preserve her marriage, or honour the oath she swore on her dead mother’s soul? And even as she places her faith in the protective powers of her angel talisman, she must prove she’s no Devil’s servant, her talisman no evil charm. 

    Héloïse, with all her tragedies and triumphs, celebrates the birth of modern medicine, midwifery and thinking in late medieval times.

    The Historical Origin of the Character Armor and Mass Armoring

    in Current Events

    The work of Dr. Reich was prematurely cut short by the FDA prosecution.  Orgonomy was, and still is, an infant science.  In the wake of Reich's death in 1957, we must now proceed in areas where we are competent in our own way.  There are many unsolved problems and many questions left to be answered.  For instance, he was on his way to finding a cure for cancer when the FDA stopped his work.  He made inroads with atmospheric work in rainmaking and contact with UFOs.  He had many other areas he was interested in.


    One problem that we can at least speculate on is one that puzzled him to the end. Why did humans historically start to block themselves against their own emotions and the inner flow of bio-energy that he named orgone?  Horses, cats, and dogs, do not do this.  Why do we?
