The Shift THE SHIFT: The Revolution in Human Consciousness
by Owen Waters
November 27, 2005

A Word About Chaos.  In physics, chaos is a phase that occurs during transformation. You can resonate a container of water with sound waves that generate a balanced, symmetrical pattern on the surface of the water. Then, if you turn up the frequency a little, chaos will ensue. The neat pattern on the surface of the water will become choppy and discordant. However, when you turn the frequency up still more, a new pattern emerges, one which is even more complex and beautiful. The chaos was a temporary phase between one natural state of harmony and its transformation into a higher form. It is much the same with the transformation of humanity through The Shift. The frequency associated with the Old Reality has already been increased. The old pattern has been disturbed and is beginning to go away. In its place is a choppy pattern which is searching for its new form. Discords abound at a personal and social level as old wounds arise, seeking attention and resolution. As the frequency rises even more, the chaotic outbreaks upon the surface of life will settle into a new pattern, one which is even more complex and beautiful.

Souls of Distortion SOULS OF DISTORTION
October 24, 2005

This is a free e-book that you can download to read. Now after three hundred years since Descartes introduced the segregation of science and religion, science seems to come full circle; in a small but growing scientific community science has entered the domain of spirituality! The bridge between science and spirituality has already been crossed! When quantum physics in the 20th century could no longer rule out the possibility that human consciousness has a real effect on physical reality at the sub atomic level, scientists started to discover things about our reality that seemed to corroborate the tenets held by esoteric teachings. Esoteric teachings have been kept alive in spiritual traditions such as the Vedic scriptures, the Jewish Kabbalah, and in secret Gnostic circles such as the Freemasonry, who counted many famous leaders and scholars in their midst. The things you are about to read in this book are the discoveries made by many leading scholars in various fields of science, among them celebrated professors of famous universities. I have come to believe that the revolutionary scientific discoveries that were made in the last decades of the 20th century, of which only a fraction will be discussed in this book, will ultimately change our current scientific paradigms and along with it our societies.




Reforming Punishment REFORMING PUNISHMENT: PSYCHOLOGICAL LIMITS TO THE PAINS OF IMPRISONMENT
by Craig Haney, Ph.D, JD
January 7, 2006

In the preface of the book, Dr. Haney writes, "The pain [inflicted by incarceration] is not only excessive in amount but too often dispensed without regard to consequence. Indeed, it is being inflicted with the broad and sometimes enthusiastic support of the public, many of whose members lack real knowledge about the nature and effects of the punishments imposed in their name."




Who Are We? WHO ARE WE? The Challenges to America's National Identity (Hardcover)
by Samuel P. Huntington
November 18, 2005

Book Description:
In his seminal work The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, Samuel Huntington argued provocatively and presciently that with the end of the cold war, "civilizations" were replacing ideologies as the new fault lines in international politics.
Now in his controversial new work, Who Are We?, Huntington focuses on an identity crisis closer to home as he examines the impact other civilizations and their values are having on our own country.
America was founded by British settlers who brought with them a distinct culture, says Huntington, including the English language, Protestant values, individualism, religious commitment, and respect for law. The waves of immigrants that later came to the United States gradually accepted these values and assimilated into America's Anglo-Protestant culture. More recently, however, our national identity has been eroded by the problems of assimilating massive numbers of primarily Hispanic immigrants and challenged by issues such as bilingualism, multiculturalism, the devaluation of citizenship, and the "denationalization" of American elites.
September 11 brought a revival of American patriotism and a renewal of American identity, but already there are signs that this revival is fading. Huntington argues the need for us to reassert the core values that make us Americans. Timely and thought-provoking, Who Are We? is an important book that is certain to shape our national conversation about who we are.

Stolen Innocence STOLEN INNOCENCE
By John Batt
Ebury Press 2004
£14.99 hardback

Stolen Innocence is an interesting and full account of someone closely involved in this case. Sally Clark was fitted up by expert pathologists and pediatricians, and although she and her husband (themselves successful commercial lawyers) sacrificed their home and their careers to pay for her defence, she spent years on prison before key data withheld by a pathologist was found and proved her innocent. Amazon.com link Reader review #1
This book is pretty scary, really, but there's a quote in there - it was written by a lawyer, who's also a friend of the family. Sally Clark herself, and her husband, are both lawyers, and her father is actually a Chief of Police, but they still found her the victim of injustice. A cynical and once famous criminal prosecutor once said 'that the thrill of convicting the guilty is only eclipsed by the thrill of convicting the truly innocent.'- that's a quote from the book. And Sally Clark herself made an observation while at law school. Those that go into Criminal Justice - the bright become defence lawyers, the not so bright go to work for the Crown Prosecution Service. Maybe because they have the means and the permission sanctioned by the State to lie, just to win a case? Sad and wrong world we live in, Sherry, and I just wish the public were more informed.
Reader review #2
This book is fascinating, upsetting and totally gripping. I thought it might be heavy going but in fact I could hardly put it down. I wanted to understand what happened in this case and everything was explained in ways I could easily understand. Even the legal stuff was 'translated'. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in this subject and who wants an absorbing summer read.




With Liberty for Some WITH LIBERTY FOR SOME 500 years of imprisonment in America
by Scott Christianson
August 19, 2005

The key word in the subtitle is "imprisonment," for although much of this book is a history of the U.S. prison system, it is also an examination of the whole notion of imprisonment, whether as a slave, as (according to the author) a member of a utopian community such as the Shakers or as an inmate at Sing Sing. Christianson (a former newspaper reporter now associated with the New York State Defenders Association) offers an accessible, if curiously unfocused, account that includes a quick history of the African slave trade, a glimpse at how the British treated American prisoners of war during the Revolutionary War, grim scenes from early prisons in New York and Pennsylvania, descriptions of Civil War, stories of famous wardens and convicts (the Scottsboro Boys, Sacco and Vanzetti, Marcus Garvey), accounts of notorious prison riots and?finally?the rise of the prison business, which Christianson convincingly argues is now a mainstay of the American economy. The book sometimes wanders far afield (what's the early history of the Mormon Church doing here?) while other germane subjects are left uncovered (he gives limited serious attention, for instance, to the theories of criminology and prison architecture that made 19th-century America a mecca for penologists, or to how typical prisoners now spend their days). The author is a skillful storyteller with an eye for unexpected information, but his apparent zeal to impart a lot of information often interferes with his message.





Books to Prisoners

BOOKS TO PRISONERS PROJECT
April 4, 2005

Prison Legal News is an active supporter of Books to Prisoner Projects across the country. PLN provides numerous projects with calendars, bookmarks and back issues of PLN to distribute to prisoners. Most of these projects are staffed by volunteers working on shoestring budgets. These fine men and women are dedicated to filling the hole of reading material needed by prisoners created by Department of Corrections departments that spend many millions building and remodeling prisons - but neglect the need and thirst of imprisoned men and women for quality reading material. Please be generous and donate money, paperback books, or your time to one or more of these programs. If possible, also patronize the bookstores listed below that are generously supporting books to prisoner projects.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN

"Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence. Any man who has once proclaimed violence as his method is inevitably forced to take the lie as his principle." Solzhenitsyn, who taught us the evil of Stalin's Gulag Archipelago, found refuge in this country 20 years ago. We decried injustice in Soviet Russian, yet emulated it here.
