"At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities."

~Jean Houston

Let me share a very personal story with you:

Nearly 35 years ago I was in Denmark where I have dear friends and have spent a good deal of time. If you know me you know that I am really interested in the way people build their cultures. So I am very interested in how different cultures decorate and adorn their environments and themselves as an expression of their world view. Out of that interest, I particularly enjoy textiles and culturally meaningful decorative arts.

So, walking down the street in Copenhagen I saw a beautiful Danish traditional bonnet in the window and I went inside to ask about its history. I got to know, and then become good friends with, the owner of the shop, Ella Nielsen. Ella was just 18 years old when the Nazis invaded Denmark on April 9, 1940 and goose-stepped their way down the main street in Copenhagen. We all know the story: courageous King Christian showed up to meet the Nazis wearing the armband and yellow star the Nazis demanded all Danish Jews wear.

What most people do not know is what happened next. The stunned Danes, according to my friend Ella, did not know what to do: their dearly loved little country had been invaded and they knew they were no match for either the Nazi political machine or the military one. So after standing in shocked silence for some minutes, the Danes did what the Danes do so well: they started to laugh. The laughter spread through the crowd. It deepened and rolled and roared.

The Germans did not realize what was happening at first and became very uneasy at the sound. Then they realized that it was the sound of tens, hundreds of thousands of people roaring with laughter. At them. They looked around. They broke ranks, they stopped and pointed their rifles wildly at the laughing Danes. But they did not fire a single shot. Those well trained, disciplined crack Nazi troops were totally disoriented by the laughter and left the streets in disarray.

The Danes realized that laughter was a potent weapon and they used it continually on the sober, serious and highly vulnerable Nazis throughout the occupation. The Nazis never figured out how to deal with it.

Ella told me how she, a blond, blue eyed, very beautiful fluent German speaking 18 year old would respond to a German soldier or Gestapo agents who spoke to her. She would bat her lovely eyes, toss her blond curls and sing-song" Ich versteh nicht" [I don't understand!] Ich verstehe nicht!" And then she would run away giggling wildly.

What the bewildered Nazis never realizes was that the bubble-headed girl running away from them was sabotaging everything in sight when she was able to get away with it along with all her other friends in the Danish Resistance Movement.

Ella lit up and became young again when she told me that story. And I, watching her once un-faded blue eyes sparkle with the life and power of that humor, have never forgotten Ella's lesson in one of the many things that humor can mean. It can mean that an inauthentic power structure is breaking up and that the consciousness of the time is aware of it, often before the bulk of the populace is. So if you track humor and satire closely, not only will you enjoy the study, but you will often see the bell weather, the harbinger, of change before it is manifest in other aspects of the culture. It's that way with health freedom right now.

People are laughing at drugs, seeing them as absurd. This is a really good sign!

  • Consider the "perfect drug", Panexa + If you are sensitive to rough language, I suggest do not read the fine print of this ad, just the top portion which will not offend you (unless you work for Big Pharma, of course)
  • Make sure you check out the wonderful animation by the Austin Lounge Lizards, The Drugs I Need
  • Mike Adams of TargetNews wants the world to know that both a new disease and a new cure have been found: we no longer have to fear Brown's Grass Disease
  • "License to Pill" is another look at the absurdity of the "We couldn't get much higher: every condition requires a prescription" mind-set
  • Junk science and a diagnosis for every kid are making people uncomfortable. Recoil published a report about the high number of kittens with ADD
  • And then there are wonderful flash animations about major issues:
    - Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and threats to organic food:
    # Grocery Store Wars
    # The Meatrix

It's pretty amazing but pretty clear: We, the [little] People, are making our voices and our laughter heard. We are making our wishes felt in the Health Freedom War despite:

  • Overwhelming odds -- these people have the largest corporate power anyone has ever amassed in human history
  • But Monsanto has dropped all research and production of GMO wheat because of public resistance -- including a threatened boycott by Japan (which buys 2.5 million tons of wheat per year of our wheat)
  • Overwhelming resources -- the multi nationals have, for all practical purposes, unlimited finances and, with it, unlimited influence
  • But this is a people's fight: public vigor and involvement in health freedom is growing despite those odds.
  • When we ask people to send letters to Congress and sign on to the Citizen Petition, tens of thousands of people respond! By the way, if you have not done so, please do it right now. Your voice really does matter.
  • The organic market share, for instance, grows by 20+ a year while the conventional food market growth is flat.
  • Increasing numbers of concerned people visit -and buy- at www.EatSafeEatSmart (and email the site to their friends) to select organic food and products (and support us, of course) despite a complete lack of conventional advertising for the site.
  • You are sending your treasures to the DUMP fund* (you send us your unwanted treasures, we sell them on eBay and you get a tax deduction!)
  • Overwhelming media control -- there is a nearly perfect media blackout in all major news outlets: TV, commercial radio, newspapers, magazines (could their $4 billion in revenue have anything to do with their compliant silence?)
  • Wouldn't you think that the elimination of all international trade on high potency vitamins and the dangerous implications for domestic compliance inherent in the ratification of the Codex Vitamin and Mineral Guideline in Rome last July 4 (2005) would have been worthy of, say, a note on page 27 of the 4th section of the New York Times or 30 seconds on CNN? Or the fact that the Undersecretary for Sustainable Development told the Codex Alimentarius Commission that it was not receiving additional funding from the World Health Organization because it had failed to make a contribution to human health during its history would attract some attention?
  • Despite that, the health freedom message is reaching who-knows-how-many-millions of people in dozens and dozens of radio shows (some of which are available on our site) which get the word out. And out. And out. And out.
  • Our email blasts are forwarded to hundreds of thousands of people who are eager to get the battle reports. The internet is making a revolution in thought and understanding possible in health freedom as in so many other areas. And you are part of it.
  • Overwhelming advertising sophistication -- manipulation of public opinion and behavior is the highest of arts for these people. We are supposed to believe that the government is keeping us safe and buy, buy, buy, poisoned food and poison pills. But we are not all following the script so carefully written for us. Despite their best efforts to control our beliefs and behavior,

We ARE winning the war!

The other side is fighting a rear guard action and they know it.

Codex is a Big Pharma inspiration which is every bit as dangerous -- and profit driven -- as making every phase and stage of life a disease. And, while some people do buy into that model of ill health (regrettably, most physicians are at the head of the line, of course, since their entire education, in medical school and after it, is controlled by the very industry they should be most leery about because of the deadly toxicity of these drugs which are the leading cause of death in America) many more are figuring out that drugs and death, disability and distress far too often go hand in hand. Our laughter is a big problem for the other side.

Keep on laughing. And keep on taking action!

Oh, by the way, I almost forgot to mention: Nutricide: the DVD is now avilable. Order it for yourself, show it at a public gathering, give it to others and give copies to your members of Congress!

We are on the winning side. It's worth laughing about!

Yours in laughter, health and freedom,
