Dear Greg, Don & Glenn,
Received a copy of The Whole World, postmarked August 9, 1994,
yesterday. Nice work. It's inspirational to see that there are
folks out there thinking with serious positiviity.
Enclosing a few things as added gist for your thought mills.
The piece about the Wyoming Councils, written last July, was
planned as a first installment. These things are being written
for the purpose of fostering communication and understanding.
Prinicples, not personalities are the intended object of articles
about intra-Family politics. Where written materials fall short
of factual accuracy is an indicaion that the author has fallen
short of his purpose. Comments in that regard are greatly
You mentioned the ALL WAYS FREE, and may have noticed the
Editor's Note at the bottom left hand corner of page 2, and the
article by Martha Gail (Little White Owl) recounting her side of
a story about her trip to D.C. Taken together, I think, these
three stories begin to reveal the seamy political underside of an
otherwise idyllic society. At this point I'm inclined to believe
that it has a lot to do with ego, the guiding political power.
From my perspective the points raised in the ALL WAYS FREE should
have been raised, instead of avoided, at council circle. If
there were an Old and a New Family faction, the Old Family
leveled its' accusations in the ALL WAYS FREE, the New Family
leveled its' charges in the ALMOST FREE. The Old Family began a
new tradition of making the ALL WAYS FREE more exclusive by
limiting distribution. The interFamily politics (discussed?)
skirted in council related to written documents. These documents
ran beneath the disharmony, yet, in the council of prehaps 200
not more than 12 people had actually read the documents.
For example, when Chuck said it was Thomas who took it upon
himself to "speak for the Family," he hadn't read the documents
Thomas had written, but he had read the ALL WAYS FREE, and
Steven's writings. Thomas HADN'T read the ALL WAYS FREE, and
didn't know that Steven, seated in council not more than 15 feet
away, had identified Thomas by name in his Editor's Note. Thomas
stood in the circle and held up a document written to the
President Clinton, Signed by Steven, over the words, "Rainbow
Family of Living Light." So, it seems, here's a counsil
dominated and riven by questions of "who's been speaking on
behalf of the Rainbow Family?" This question was raised by Old
Family accusations, and based on what was written on paper, yet,
rather than set the papers out so the council can discuss the
words written thereon, through through manipulation of (council)
process and the media (AWF) the question raised was transformed
into a political circus.
Expect to be writing an update on this council thing, filling in
gaps in the council with the words written in the ALL WAYS FREE.
Another matter we're dealing with immediately is this White House
shooting death of Marcelino Corneil on December 20, 1994.
In service to Peace through understanding,
