Self Reliance: There’s now no shortage of ‘green options’ for us to choose from and we’ve been given the impression that as long as we behave in certain ways and buy the right products, we’re doing the best we can. This simply isn't true. And is in fact the slippery slope that leads right back into the system we are intent on escaping. The goal is to buy less. Use what you have. And apply pragmatism and common sense.
We reject it because of its inherent inequity, lack of thoughtful design, and it's inevitable self annihilation. The farm and it's residents have set out to redefine what resistance to the system looks like. No longer will we fight the battle for quality of life, for the survival of our species, in the streets of the urban dystopia. Whose streets? Goes the chant. Not mine. They can have them. Those streets are the capillaries and arteries of the machine. The machine that is steadily churning this world, our environment, our humanity, steadily down the conveyor belt towards the end.
No longer will we have our heads busted In by the lackeys and jack boot thugs of the barons. Pepper sprayed point-blank eye lids pried open by leather gautlets; hog tied and dragged down the street face bouncing on the concrete; ridiculed by the goose necking mindless minions watching their televisions and pointing their fingers. No longer will we be incarcerated for exercising our right to peaceful civil disobedience. Conveniently forgotten for an extra week or two in a putrid, dank cell, for a simple misdemeanor. No longer will police thug batons meet their mark. Have the streets. They're yours. We will be in the field, in the workshop, in the development center, building something new. Something better. For I have finally learned, destruction and creation are mutually exclusive; they cannot be undertaken simultaneously. This is the totality of Revolution.
Can't get enough dystopia? Tune in to Writestream on Tuesday, September 16 at 1 p.m. Eastern when Dariaanne welcomes Tracy Lawson, author of the 5-star rated novel Counteract, to the show:
The Office of Civilian Safety and Defense has guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism for the last fifteen years with the full backing of the US government. Their carefully crafted list of Civilian Restrictions means no concerts or sporting events, no travel, no social media, no cash transactions, and no driver's licenses for eighteen-year-olds Tommy and Careen. The OCSD has even outlawed grocery stores, all in the name of safety.
Now, there's a new threat-airborne chemical weapons that could be activated at any time. But the OCSD has an antidote: Just three drops a day is all it takes to stay safe. It's a small price to pay for safety.
Or is it...
Dariaanne will chat with the multi-talented Tracy about her latest book and amazing writing career, which began in high school. During the live show, host and guest welcome your calls and comments at (347) 945-7246.
In the second hour, stay tuned for the Right Wing Riot with The Luminaries of Liberty - Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right and The Prince of Whitebread. It's Public Service Satire we can believe in!
See you on Tuesday, September 16 at 1 p.m. Eastern for Writestream with Tracy Lawson and the Right Wing Riot!
Please welcome Mord McGhee author of Ghosts of San Francisco (Tales of Eclipse Book 1)
Sep 24th, 6:47pm
Bio: 2014 SILVER GLOBAL EBOOK AWARD IN SCIENCE FICTION Mord McGhee has quietly entered the international world of science fiction with his unique and twisted tales that fly beneath the banner, "IT'S NOT DYSTOPIA TO THINK HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF." Mord is a retired rock musician and has been called the "Heavy Metal" of literature. His writing is a wild blend of Sex, Drugs, and Rock'n'Roll-Science Fiction. From frightening technology to grim battle scenes between street gangs... ...From secret societies bent on ruling the world to a gritty day in the life of a mechanic hundreds of years in the future... ...MORD MCGHEE is blasting the genre with a Marshall Stack. Jamming science fiction with brash, loud, in your face prose. Mord's influences are eclectic. Steven Brust, Steve Alten, George R.R. Martin, H.P. Lovecraft, Philip K. Dick, Stephen King, George Orwell, Glen Cook, Robert E. Howard, J.R.R. Tolkien, and H.G. Wells are his literary tastes. Mord's hotly anticipated second novel, "MURDER RED INK," is an exciting new look at an old murder mystery that we know today as JACK THE RIPPER.
The Web has been all abuzz about Viv, the new personal assistant agent from the creators of Apple's Siri. Word is that Viv will be able to do "anything you ask."
Even if that proves to be a little on the optimistic side, there is no question that we are in the early stages of a new era of persoanl digital assistants. What are we currently doing for ourselves that we soon won't have to? And what will our new assistants provide to us that was never available before?
Tune in and explore.
PLUS (Time permitting): Dystopias. Who needs 'em?
Tonight our very special guest is Pamela Tartar.
Pamela and her husband David are the purveyors of the internet radio station Pure Momentum Network where Pamela and David host three shows: Critical Mass, Factor Nine and Hash Method and Pure Momentum is where you can also catch Deborah Tavares and her show.
For tonight’s discussion I asked Pamela to take us through two mind control programs deeply embedded in most Americans known as patriotism and authority. Our talk was wide ranging with Pamela offering a very frank assessment of where we are and what needs to be done to break the programming and set humanity free.

Can't get enough of the dystopia genre?
Tune in to Writestream Tuesday on August 26 at 1 p.m. Eastern when host Dariaanne welcomes Ordinance 93 author Lilia Fabry to discuss her timely and haunting debut novel:
With the blessing of the 55th President of the United States, the newly formed Office of Familial Equality promises to end all the nation’s problems including poverty and illness with the Family Protection Act. The only catch is all pregnancies must be registered and approved.
All eyes turn to the first person to break the law, Justin Winters, an electrician suddenly turned subject of national attention. Joining him in the escape are the women known only as Spring, Summer, and Fall as they work together to run from the bureaucracy and national spotlight that pursues them.
Once the secretary of the OFE learns Winters has tested positive for causing multiple unregistered pregnancies, he comes after him full force, as the future of the Act rests upon if and how Winters and the women are brought in. Their successful defiance would lead to more defectors, their capture providing an opportunity to make an example of them all.
With little more than the clothes on their backs, the four set off on a quest for freedom and to keep the identity of the mother a secret. Most of all, they are running from an ordinance in the law which threatens what they hold most dear.
At 2:05 p.m., the Right Wing Riot takes over with their unique brand of "public service satire." Join us!
Part 1 - Pamela Tartar of Factor Nine interviews hypnotherapist and spiritual regressionist Mike Williams.
Mike discusses the journey which lead him to become one of the top hypnotherapists and past life regressionists in the field today. Pamela also asks Mike about the inspiration and motivation behind the release of his album Leaving Dystopia.
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Transformers: Age of Extinction! Is it on par with the first three? Is it any better than the first three? Might it actually be worse? Do the Dinobots actually make an appearance? Is it time for Michael Bay to walk away from the franchise? Can Michael Bay actually be considered an auteur, or is he merely a skilled technician? Is the franchise beyond redemption at this point? Is the source material too inane to be made palatable for adults?
We’ll also be reviewing the sci-fi actioner Snowpiercer! Can it be considered a modern day fable? Is it on par with other dystopian sci-fi classics like The Matrix and The Road Warrior? Has director Bong Joon-ho managed to upstage his Hollywood brethren? Has Chris Evans become one of our most dependable leading men? Can he now be considered a fanboy favorite? Does this film show that groundbreaking sci-fi can be made on a meager budget?
Lastly, we’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Do the Right Thing! It is still relevant after all these years? Is it evenhanded in its portrayal of race relations in America? Were critics right to fear that it might set off race riots around the country? Can Spike Lee still make films of this caliber? Is “Fight the Power” the greatest rap song to ever appear on a motion picture soundtrack? Does the film offer an accurate portrait of Koch-era New York?
For the month of May, Swords and Space turns to look at one of the all-time classics of not just science fiction but English literature at large. Your hosts Nicholas and Richard Wansbutter will be joined by recurring guest Marc Ratusz to discuss George Orwell's 1984. We will delve into the timeless themes of this work as they pertain to the destruction of the English language, totalitatian regimes, mind control, false flags, and more.
We will be discussing the novel as well as the two films adaptations of 1956 and 1984 film versions.
With a world filled with Brave New World, The Hunger Games, Divergent, and so many dystopian stories, can Utopian stories be published today? Is the idea of a Utopian world a fleeting illusion? Can a person or a society grow in a Utopia? Could artist exist? Is mankind able to truly exist in Utopian world or would we get ourselves expelled or choose to leave as Bilbo left the Shire?
Is one man’s Utopia another man’s dystopia?
The Write Pack explores Star Trek, Logan’s Run, Brave New World, The Hunger Games, Batman, Divergent, 1984, Transformers, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings as they try to tackle the debate between Utopia vs. Dystopia.
