School of the Earth in Kenny Lake, AK

"When rational and emotional appreciation develops to match reality, individual and collective actions will evolve and grow to meet the needs of that reality. Intriguingly, this process leads not only to responsible global citizenship, but also to human fulfillment and happiness." Dave Wellman, School of the Earth, Kenny Lake, Alaska.
In a recent post I copied a letter I wrote to the editor of the Copper River Record. It was in response to a letter by Dave Wellman, owner of the Wellwood Bed and Breakfast. Insulted by his tone and use of newspeak to lecture us, I reacted the same way I have all my life (I wrote my first letter to the editor when I was 12 years old, to the Renton Record Chronicle.)

Today I'm updating Camp Redington's website with our hostel/museum/showers info and did a keyword search for lodging in Kenny Lake. This led me to Wellman's website where I learned he is hosting a school program next month, called School of the Earth. Tim came by while I was reading it so I read the following passage to him and then asked him if he understood any of it. He replied, "No, but I understand he thinks we should all do things his way from now on."

Mr. Wellman is a retired teacher. Can anyone guess which college he attended? Should it be of any interest to us that Wellwood Center is also a Baha'i religious school?

What does it take to "build a vibrant human civilization on a healthy planet?" Rebuilding Community was announced by G.W. Bush as the number 2 priority in the War on Terror (Bush's State of the Union Address, Jan 30, 2002. The War on Iraq is also called Rebuilding Iraq, and the American/Israeli controlled infrastructure is entirely communitarian im make-up.)

What does it mean to "play a part in the emergence of a mature society?" {boldface mine}

The insinuation that Americans and Iraqis live in an immature, unevolved society is made clear throughout all communitarian writings. Communitarian Network founder Amitai Etzioni came here from Israel to "shore up" our outdated morality, political system, and social structure because, according to him, our people have too many selfish, childish expectations.

The bottom line to all benevolent communitarian assistance is, in their own words, to "discover opportunities for restoration of the planet and revitalization of civilization." This whole "Save the Planet" and "Exporting Democracy" movement, shrouded as it all is in lofty spiritual claims, is nothing more than a massive scam to steal private land, and everything and everyone on it.

U.S. constitutional law is based ENTIRELY in the right to own private property. (What was the Iraqi constitution of 1915 based upon?) Protecting individual rights to own property is the only basis for our liberties. We own ourselves and everything we have as a result of our honest labors. Our right to retain our private information is based in the American principles for ownership. Our law, both criminal and civil, is based entirely in DAMAGES to property. This means that if the globalists can steal our land, then our national and state law no longer exists.

Global Communitarians think we should all place our faith in their values without knowing what they are (ask the Irish about that!), and that we should be taught to voluntarily hand over our land and lives for their safekeeping. To disagree means we are unevolved and immature.

They have a very appealing program for easily corruptible people motivated by greed, sloth and envy. Alaskan eco-tourists and their local servants (mostly imported international youth) are telling Alaskans how to live. Are Alaskans listening?

The evidence overwhelmingly proves that "collective actions" such as this "school" teaches are ALWAYS organized and promoted by control freaks who have an underlying communitarian agenda. There is absolutely zero scientific evidence that societies evolve. The Idea that societies DO evolve is based entirely in Hegel's ideal of the state becoming AS GOD. That's what it really means to claim "the light for ourselves." http://www.sotearth.com/Why.htm
The human endeavor on Planet Earth has arrived at a grave state of crisis, a perilous condition that threatens civilization and the very survival of many species, including humans. The crisis is multi-faceted, involving not only environmental concerns, but also social, economic, and spiritual isssues. Finding solutions may at times challenge our own sense of who we are and how we should live. Time is short. Actions taken in the near future will have consequences, for good or ill, that color the fate of distant generations.
.
Hope lies in many places, but ultimately in human hearts and minds. When rational and emotional appreciation develops to match reality, individual and collective actions will evolve and grow to meet the needs of that reality. Intriguingly, this process leads not only to responsible global citizenship, but also to human fulfillment and happiness. With our back against the wall, the actions forced upon us for survival seem to push us to a state of maturity recommended in ages past by the wisest and most far-sighted amongst us. By rising to meet the challenge of our times, we, who live in this age of darkness and light, may claim the light for ourselves and for all those who follow, into the far centuries.
.
School of the Earth, by providing education, motivation, and support for constructive action, can play a part in the emergence of a mature society, capable of creating and maintaining a vibrant civilization on a healthy planet.

On Wellman's "What?" page we find the curriculum:

Join us in a 5-day, roll-up-your-sleeves, feet-on-the-ground program in which we explore the big issues related to building a vibrant human civilization on a healthy planet:
investigate solutions linked to long-term revitalization of civilization
identify factors essential for a home planet that is vital and alive
search for common threads that suggest a unified approach to different problems
explore the natural environment and find a deeper sense of acquaintanceship with Earth
appraise the broad universe and gain perspective, wonder, and renewed commitment
.
School of the Earth provides an upbeat, encouraging, informal setting for addressing these weighty themes. Thinkers with recognized expertise in relevant topics address School of the Earth participants via videoconference, contributing world-class knowledge and ideas. Group discussions, wilderness excursions, and other activities provide opportunities for both great fun and challenging learning.
.
During School of the Earth each participant will:
acquire a broader and deeper understanding of the planetary crisis
discover opportunities for restoration of the planet and revitalization of civilization
participate in a hands-on service project chosen by the group
develop a personal plan for future action
gain a support group to provide continuing assistance and encouragement
.
Optional college credit may be available.
So how about that? You can get "college credit" for one of these Earth seminars which are based in Hegelian "logic," but we can't find one school in the entire world that will give us "college credit" for successfully rebutting Hegel and everything based in his phony ideology.

On the "Who?" page we learn the Wellmans "have been primarily involved in project development." Hmm... what kinds of development projects? Sustainable and Community development that "leads to responsible global citizenship?" What's the odds the Wellmans support Local Agenda 21? I wonder how they feel about not being a designated Scenic ByWay.

The only genuine "peril" we face as a nation is a communitarian takeover. Shhhhh.

I'm thinking about challenging Dave Wellman to a public debate at the Kenny Lake Community Hall. I probably could pass out an ACL flyer at the fair to help get the interest going. Then I could plan an anti communitarian seminar and offer a "balanced" curriculum to their school. I could find immense fulfillment and happiness in that.

On another note, here's a blog discussing communitarian and libertarian similarities:

I'm including this in the hardcopy manifesto: The Unity of the Common Law; Studies in Hegelian Jurisprudence.

Awesome post. I can't believe this is happening in Alaska. Truly frightening. I think I'd rather shoot myself in the foot than spend five days with the types of people that would attend that school. Disgusting. Disgusting. Disgusting.

Thanks, now I'm trying to locate the source of the college credits for the seminar. Wellman is on the WISE board too, a new org set up to teach us unevolved locals how to become spiritual stewards of our lovely planet . WISE includes University of AK, Fairbanks, and the high frequency project, HAARP.

Interdepartmental training programs partnering with community organizations eliminates the barriers between government held databases. Where our government is forbidden to "share" private information (US Code 552a), NGOs, Schools and non-profits are exempt from such federal and state government restrictions. Some of the enlightened training WISE students receive is HOW to gather and store resource data for their areas, and of course humans are considered resources (or identified problems, see POP-Problem Oriented Policing). It's also called capacity building and locating hidden human assets.

This is all tied directly to the new call for "volunteer service" which is a requirement for all citizens in a communitarianized community. Let us never forget the communitarians "balance" our rights versus our responsibilities, and they are the ones who decide exactly what our new responsibilities are.

"Sometimes scarifices have to be made for the good of the community," said Veronica Jackson, NATS Director, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, in an interview on October 10, 1999 regarding a police/SWAT raid for "suspicion of harboring rats and bugs" where 13 tenants were held under armed guard for 2 1/2 hours while community police teams searched private bedrooms and read private mail and books, all of which was logged into the COMPASS database in June 2000, handed over to federal agents by Veronica before she "disappeared." (See Dawson v. Seattle, Ninth District Court of Appeals, 2005)

I'm becoming more dislexic every day. That should read "sacrifices" in Veronica's direct quote.

I heard back from Janelle Eklund, the leader of WISE. "No. WISE has nothing to do with School of the Earth."

This confuses me.

Bobby Garner said...

Isn't it interesting how Janelle denied a charge that was never made? The statement "WISE has nothing to do with School of the Earth", is very different for example, from "Wellman is NOT on the WISE board" which she did not say. Answering a question that was never asked is just one of the techniques of controlling any debate.

I bet they will also deny the following:

"Now, the time has come for you to leave the Earth school and to pass to a higher level of evolutionary development. The imperfections with which the humanity has burdened itself will not be characteristic of this stage. Therefore, only those of you, who entirely subdue their lives to the Divine Law, will be able to ascend to this level. During your education in the Earth school, you are allowed to do some infringements for a given time. However, you are showed the right models. The principle that the human being only comprehends the knowledge then when s/he is capable of applying it in practice is known in the pedagogy. Therefore, you are given an opportunity to acquire Divine knowledge and to apply it in practice.

"There are such people who successfully comprehend the Divine science and there are such people who have not managed for now to comprehend its alphabet. However, all of you should graduate the School of the Earth. And each of you has to show readiness for further education." - Dictations From the Ascended Master's

"Further education" of course, comes in the next life. The graduation diploma is our death certificate, and we are expected to volunteer for it. Our refusal to submit to this "Divine Law" is their justification for the dreamed of population reduction

My email asked WISE if they were the acrediting board for Wellman's School of the Earth. The reply, "No." would have been sufficent. Adding that WISE has "nothing to do with School of the Earth" sounds to me like she's trying to distance WISE from the V.P.'s earth school, doesn't it?

Wellman is the Vice-President of WISE and his nature walks on his property were part of WISE's grant funded curriculum in 2006:
http://www.wise-edu.org/pdf/october_06.pdf..

From the WISE website we learn: "During the summer of 2006 WISE developed a pilot project offering fee based natural history walks for tourists. 2008 begins the full fledged program." These "tours" are on Wellman's property, and according to a local source he stopped locals from trapping the beavers who dam up one of the best fishing spots around. His "class" includes furs.. I wonder what he tells people about trapping.

Bobby you are so right. WISE and School of the Earth share the exact same goals as Alice Baily and Madame Blavatsky: teaching us to become "enlightened" stewards of ALL the land. WISE directs all the Earth Day worship ceremonies at our public shcools. WISE "partners" include local Christian groups like SAPA. Do Christians know what God these "wise" teachers pray to?

Governor Sarah Palin reaffirmed our new community responsibilities ("Alaskans are capable and created to work") in her Jan 2008 address:

"Together, let’s provide the services that our Constitution requires, constitutional services such as education, public safety, and a solid infrastructure – and let's do them right. Let’s commit to take responsibility for good stewardship when we’re developing our natural resources. Let's remember that Alaskans are capable and created to work. So when government provides education and job training, every able-bodied Alaskan is expected to work and not simply rely on government to provide. Let's take personal responsibility in all areas of life – including health. What we consume and engage in impacts not just our personal health, but our communities too."

Since when did U.S. state constitutions "require" the government to provide communitarian services? I think Comrade Palin has Alaska confused with the Russian Communist Party Platform of 2002.

We are falling "like ripe fruit."

"Do Christians know what God these "wise" teachers pray to?"

Christians pray to Jesus, and worship an image of a man on a cross. The man Jesus is dead, and so is their god.

Christians pray to the same god that I linked to in the previous post. Its the "I AM" Jesus, the same one whom New Ager's expect to re-appear. Its the anti-Christ.

"And God spoke all these words, saying, I am Jehovah your God, who has brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall not have any other gods before Me. You shall not make a graven image for yourself, or any likeness in the heavens above, or in the earth beneath, or in the waters under the earth; you shall not bow to them, and you shall not serve them; for I am Jehovah your God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of fathers on sons, on the third and on the fourth generation, to those that hate Me; and doing kindness to thousands, to those loving Me, and to those keeping My commandments." - Exodus 20: 1-6

Jesus recognized the superiority of his Father in heaven, and taught us to pray for his will to be done on this earth.

Christians refuse to even pronounce his name.

Christianity is hopelessly polluted with the pagan gods of ancient Rome, and cannot possibly separate herself from them. Because she claims to worship the True God, but prostitutes herself to thwe world rulers (headed up by Satan himself), she is properly called a harlot, Babylon the Great and the resurrected Jesus speaking to John on the Isle of Patmos, warned, "My people, come out of her, that you may not share in her sins". Because "her sins joined together, even up to Heaven, and God remembered her unjust deeds" - Revelation 18:4,5

If not for her deeds of injustice, we would not be having this discussion.

"And another angel went forth from the altar having authority over the fire. And he spoke with a great cry to the one having the sharp sickle, saying, Send your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, because its grapes are ripened." - Revelation 14:18
