My bottom lines in life. No double standards. Human and creature rights for all. Preference to the neediest. Ultimate value being the loving Spirit of goodness in action. Truth is God, God as truth. Extreme personal responsibility. Holding self to higher responsibilities than anyone else is held.

Be Creator real or imagined, attempting to embody that being, that loving Spirit of goodness in action, is the way of joy.

My view is that cancer can often be stopped if it's gotten early enough. For thousands of years we've been told to stop the cancer of our selfishness. Malignancy rules now.

Madness may be the only sanity in this evil 2018 World. The Madness of living the joy of Total Service joyfully in the midst of total horror.

A note of thanks to the benefactor that month after month after month after month has helped keep this Mission afloat.  Today turned out to be a pretty encouraging test run of so many of the little and large modifications that have taken place in recent months in part through your help. The vehicle seems to be drastically more solid now. Today's 28 Mi round trip included 1400 feet of climbing most of which was fairly moderate but there was an 11-degree grade, that's really steep. And the vehicle had the power to go up it solidly but with a lot of work, and more importantly it was able to come down it at very low speed with only a little bit of regular breaking. The regenerative braking worked well and seems to be very solid now. And some of the travel included Sandy Road fairly well packed but some loose sand and some washboard. And recent enhancements on the vehicle now enable it to travel very very slowly over such sections to avoid the horrible bouncing that washboard was delivering before. This is very encouraging. Thank you for your part in it with all your patient trusting support. James

Let them eat cake, wasn't that sick? Isn't that sick? I think it is sick, pathological, to want to be happy in this 2018 World where Evil is increasing by the second and misery is so prevalent. The joy.....

I think it is sick, pathological, to want to be happy in this 2018 World where Evil is increasing by the second and misery is so prevalent. The joy..... of service is an entirely different matter. In my now fairly extensive study of the current scholarly work on these subjects, Joy versus happiness, there is no apparent recognition that they are two different things and certainly no study on the joy of serving. Absolutely sick.

About my nightly consumption of alcohol. Central to my work these last 20 years has been trying to understand the joyful path in a catatonically sick culture. I have believed there is one, I have spent almost all of my time on that path but occasionally I have lost it particularly as the world descends deeper into evil. For a host of reasons, by the end of Standing Rock last February, I saw that there was no hope of saving major populations on Earth. To my surprise I chose to face five years in prison by staying because....

Central to my work these last 20 years has been trying to understand the joyful path in a catatonically sick culture. I have believed there is one, I have spent almost all of my time on that path but occasionally I have lost it particularly as the world descends deeper into evil. For a host of reasons, by the end of Standing Rock last February, I saw that there was no hope of saving major populations on Earth. To my surprise I chose to face five years in prison by staying because...... I learned that I could make such a stand for my notion of what is good where prior I could only do so with the notion that there was some prayer it might help someone in need. This was a huge step for me for which I'm very grateful.. prior to that I had been devoting my life to standing with the most oppressed and brutalized populations but each time I had at least some  tiny shred of Hope  of helping those neediest. But the large hole in my life since losing all hope a year ago, the hole represented by the alcohol I've been consuming each evening, was new and associated with the lack of hoping that I could help anyone on Earth substantially. It continues to be that the notion of standing with what is good largely sustains me but still this relatively new hole. Possibly a glimmer today of what was missing. Renewal of a thought that I've had before but has moved out of my life and now may be moving back in. The people Downstream, and there will be survivors of the political moral material Holocaust that is unfolding. Living for them, trying to understand how I would instruct them, what messages I will try and send forward in a bottle, NBA example of how in fruits to live joy in the midst of hopelessness that I want to give them, that they might find joy in an unimaginably tortured world.

Human progress is the steady victory of greed over goodness with a few well-publicized shallow exceptions.
