Thinking Small: The Long, Strange Trip of the Volkswagen Beetle
Sometimes achieving big things requires the ability to think small. This simple concept was the driving force that propelled the Volkswagen Beetle to become an avatar of American-style freedom, a household brand, and a global icon. The VW Bug inspired the ad men of Madison Avenue, beguiled Woodstock Nation, and has recently been re-imagined for the hipster generation. And while today it is surely one of the most recognizable cars in the world, few of us know the compelling details of this car's story. In Thinking Small, journalist and cultural historian Andrea Hiott retraces the improbable journey of this little car that changed the world.

Andrea Hiott's wide-ranging narrative stretches from the factory floors of Weimar Germany to the executive suites of today's automotive innovators, showing how a succession of artists and engineers shepherded the Beetle to market through periods of privation and war, reconstruction and recovery. Henry Ford's Model T may have revolutionized the American auto industry, but for years Europe remained a place where only the elite drove cars. That all changed with the advent of the Volkswagen, the product of a Nazi initiative to bring driving to the masses. But Hitler's concept of "the people's car" would soon take on new meaning. As Germany rebuilt from the rubble of World War II, a whole generation succumbed to the charms of the world's most huggable automobile.

Indeed, the story of the Volkswagen is a story about people, and Hiott introduces us to the men who believed in it, built it, and sold it: Ferdinand Porsche, the visionary Austrian automobile designer whose futuristic dream of an affordable family vehicle was fatally compromised by his patron Adolf Hitler's monomaniacal drive toward war; Heinrich Nordhoff, the forward-thinking German industrialist whose management innovations made mass production of the Beetle a reality; and Bill Bernbach, the Jewish American advertising executive whose team of Madison Avenue mavericks dreamed up the legendary ad campaign that transformed the quintessential German compact into an outsize worldwide phenomenon.

Thinking Small is the remarkable story of an automobile and an idea. Hatched in an age of darkness, the Beetle emerged into the light of a new era as a symbol of individuality and personal mobility-a triumph not of the will but of the imagination.

IN my book In Secret Tibet I have given an outline of my recent journey to Tibet, showing how, passing through successive contacts with the Tibetan multitude and gangs of brigands, I finally succeeded in visiting Tibetan monasteries in the disguise of a native. After witnessing various marvels, such as the flying lamas and the Tibetan respas* I reached the final stage of the journey in the most inaccessible part of the country where live the genuine Tibetan hermits, who can read people's thoughts and possess the strange power to maintain themselves young almost indefinitely.

Identity Complex: Making the Case for Multiplicity

Identity Complex: Making the Case for Multiplicity by Michael Hames-García
English | 2011-06-23 | ISBN: 0816649855, 0816649863 | PDF | 304 pages | 1,3 MB

Identity Complex: Making the Case for Multiplicity
In seemingly exhaustive arguments about identity as a category of analysis, we have made a critical error-one that Michael Hames-García sets out to correct in this revisionary look at the making and meaning of social identities. We have asked how separate identities-of race, class, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality-come to intersect. Instead, Hames-García proposes, we should begin by understanding such social identities as mutually constituting one another.

Grounded in both theoretical and political practices-in the lived realities of people's experience-Identity Complex reinvigorates identity as a key concept and as a tool for the pursuit of social justice. Hames-García draws on a wide range of examples to show that social identities are central to how exploitation works, such as debates about the desirability of sexual minority identities in postcolonial contexts, questions about the reality of race, and the nature of the U.S. prison crisis.

Unless we understand precisely how identities take shape in relation to each other and within contexts of oppression, he contends, we will never be able to eradicate discrimination and social inequality. By analyzing the social interdependence of identities, Hames-García seeks to enable the creation of deep connections of solidarity across differences.

A People’s History of American Empire

FREEDownload : A People’s History of American Empire

A People's History of American Empire by Howard Zinn, Mike Konopacki, Paul Buhle
English | 2008 | ISBN: 0805087443, 0805077790 | 288 pages | PDF | 80 MB

A People’s History of American Empire
Adapted from the bestselling grassroots history of the United States, the story of America in the world, told in comics form

Since its landmark publication in 1980, A People’s History of the United States has had six new editions, sold more than 1.7 million copies, become required classroom reading throughout the country, and been turned into an acclaimed play. More than a successful book, A People’s History triggered a revolution in the way history is told, displacing the official versions with their emphasis on great men in high places to chronicle events as they were lived, from the bottom up.

Now Howard Zinn, historian Paul Buhle, and cartoonist Mike Konopacki have collaborated to retell, in vibrant comics form, a most immediate and relevant chapter of A People’s History: the centuries-long story of America’s actions in the world. Narrated by Zinn, this version opens with the events of 9/11 and then jumps back to explore the cycles of U.S. expansionism from Wounded Knee to Iraq, stopping along the way at World War I, Central America, Vietnam, and the Iranian revolution. The book also follows the story of Zinn, the son of poor Jewish immigrants, from his childhood in the Brooklyn slums to his role as one of America’s leading historians.

Shifting from world-shattering events to one family’s small revolutions, A People’s History of American Empire presents the classic ground-level history of America in a dazzling new form.

Andrija Puharich – Tesla, Water Car, Aliens ,Psychedelics, ELF, Telepathy [16 mp4, 7 mp3, 23 pdf]
Andrija Puharich – (born Karel Puharic, February 19, 1918 – January 3, 1995) was a medical and parapsychological researcher, medical inventor and author, known as the person who brought Israeli Uri Geller and Dutch-born Peter Hurkos (1911-1988) to the United States for scientific investigation. Born in Chicago, Illinois, he was the son of poor Croatian immigrants. His father had entered the U. S. in 1912 as a stowaway. At home Karel's parents always called him "Andrija," which apparently wasn't his name at birth but just his parents' nickname for him. When Karel, as a young boy, started attending school, his parents enrolled him under the name "Henry Karl Puharich," feeling he would be more easily accepted with that name than with the foreign-sounding name "Karel Puharic."[1] Thereafter he often signed his name as "Henry Karl Puharich." He didn't start using his nickname "Andrija" as his first name until sometime in the later part of his life. In 1947, Puharich graduated from the Northwestern University School of Medicine. His residency was completed at Permanente Hospital in California, where he specialized in Internal Medicine. Puharich was a U.S. Army officer in the early 1950s. During that time, he was in and out of Edgewood Arsenal Research Laboratories and Fort Detrick, meeting with various high-ranking officers and officials, primarily from the Pentagon, CIA, and Naval Intelligence.[2] The Edgewood Arsenal is currently officially called the Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground.

Of his many books, Puharich wrote a supportive biography of Uri Geller, a paranormal case he investigated with the help of Itzhak Bentov, among others. Before that he investigated favorably the Brazilian psychic surgeon Ze Arigo. Puharich also investigated Mexican psychic surgeon Pachita. One of his books is The Sacred Mushroom: Key to the Door of Eternity, describes his work with psychics. In 1960, Puharich investigated materialization seances at Camp Chesterfield and discovered the use of cheesecloth being used to fake ectoplasm.[3] Two of the most famous of Puharich's over 50 patents were devices that assist hearing – the "Means For Aiding Hearing" U.S. Patent 2,995,633 and "Method And Apparatus For Improving Neural Performance In Human Subjects By Electrotherapy" U.S. Patent 3,563,246". He was also granted a U.S. Patent 4,394,230 in 1983 for a "Method and Apparatus for Splitting Water Molecules." His research included studying the influence of extremely low frequency ELF electromagnetic wave emissions on the mind, and he invented several devices allegedly blocking or converting ELF waves to prevent harm. Puharich claimed he had investigated the effects of a low frequency radiation beam that the Soviet Union had been testing. According to Puharich the beam was based on the work of Nikola Tesla and could be used as a weapon to control people. He also claimed the beam was responsible for climatic disturbances, earthquakes, Legionnaires' disease and violent riots. Puharich wrote Tesla was contacted several times by extraterrestrials.[4] Dr. Andrija Puharich played himself on Perry Mason, in the episode, "The Case of the Meddling Medium," in 1961. He conducted a series of three tests to help determine the ESP of Mason's client accused of murder. During the third test the actual murderer was exposed. While working in Mexico, Puharich married and was later divorced by the future founder and director of The American Visionary Art Museum, Rebecca Alban Hoffberger.

Hermans – Memories of a Maverick, Andrija Puharich (1998)

This book is about the richness, the excitement, the ecstasies and the agonies of the life of Dr. Andrija Puharich. Hampered by poverty, scarred by personal tragedies, he etched his way doggedly from football star, and outstanding student through medical school, on to establish The Round Table Foundation in Maine for parapsychological research, to medical discoveries, resulting in over 75 patents. A maverick, a dedicated researcher, a rebel scientist, Andrija Puharich was both scorned by colleagues, and revered and encouraged by those gifted with foresightedness, including Aldous Huxley. His research expeditions ran the full gamut from initial experiments with Eileen Garrett and Peter Hurkos in the Faraday Cage, to filmed forays into the secrets of the sacred mushroom rites of the Chatino Indians of Mexico, to Brazil to do investigative research on the healer Pachita and Arigo, the famous "surgeon of the rusty knife", to the Kahuna priests of Hawaii, to Israel to study Uri Geller, and the long lasting investigation into the mysteries of UFO's. Andrija Puharich was never satisfied with one-dimensional observation. He participated in the secret rites, partook of the sacred mushroom, and let himself be operated on by Arigo and Pachita. He was a foremost authority on E.L.F. (extremely low frequency magnetic fields) pollution, and its effects on human organisms. As a medical doctor, physicist and inventor, he is in every "Who's Who" of noteworthy scientists. He conducted scientific research of Nobel prize quality, and published numerous scientific papers. During his final years, Dr. Puharich dedicated all his time developing countermeasures against – the genetic damage of E.L.F. signals. He developed a comprehensive theory of the state of well being based on a central frequency of near-8Hz for the homeostatic control of cell division. He was probably the first to detail the scope for further research with dolphins involving novel electromagnetic mechanisms (including scalars), since then followed by top researchers worldwide. He described, on the basis of experimental research, an advanced theory of subatomic physics. He successfully conducted reversal of tumors with superoxide anions and ozone. Being considered too far out, or too ahead of his time, he was by then largely ignored by Academia and earlier colleagues. His passing means the loss of a quiet, sincere explorer of the reaches of human possibilities.

3) For The Record #170 – Plan Nine from Berchtesgaden (1999)

FTR #170 With the end of the millennium drawing near, it is increasingly important to be aware of possible political manipulation of people's apocalyptic fears and hopes. In that context, a channeling cult called "The Nine" bears particular examination. Purporting to be the "Ennead" (the nine gods of ancient Egypt), they have links to many different individuals and institutions including: Andrija Puharich (connected to the CIA's mind control programs of the 50s and 60s), Russians associated with the Gorbachev regime in the former USSR, the Esalen Institute and numerous New Age organizations. This organization espouses a racist, ariosophist philosophy that maintains that all of the Earth's peoples are descended from The Nine (and, consequently, superior) except for the black race (who are, consequently, inferior.) With the New Age movement growing and with 42% of American college graduates believing that we have been visited by space aliens, the danger that the views of The Nine could achieve widespread acceptance and lead to genocide is not one that should be too readily cast aside. (It should be noted that there is convincing evidence that so-called UFOs are real, but do not come from outer space. Should they be deployed in conjunction with other types of secret technology, the views of The Nine could be reinforced in a very convincing way.) As noted above, Andrija Puharich, whose organization has done much to promote The Nine, was involved with the CIA mind-control programs. Those programs were initiated from a research base developed by the Nazis in World War II. The program concludes with a brief look at Savitri Devi, a post-war Nazi mystic who has achieved considerable influence in the New Age movement. (Recorded on 9/19/99.)

4) An INSCOM Beyond Excellence – Army High Performance Task Force Report Documents

A 19-page report acquired via a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of the Army asking for any openly-acknowledged collaboration between The Monroe Institute and Army intelligence. INSCOM was the central institution in Jon Ronson's "The Men Who Stare At Goats," later made into a film of the same name, and is infamous for attempting to create "psychic super warriors."

Ban Ki-Moon (Modern World Leaders)
As a child in South Korea, Ban Ki-moon wrote a letter to the U.N. secretary-general regarding the Hungarian uprising against Russia. A few years later in the United States, he met President John F. Kennedy. From then on, Ban desired to work for peace, an aspiration that led him to become South Korea's foreign minister in 2004, at a time when tensions between North Korea and its neighbors were heated. Two years later, he ascended to the position of U.N. secretary-general. Ban has worked to show the benefits of diplomatic approaches in solving conflict, and has called for the world's citizens to change their habits to curb global warming. To restore people's trust in the battered organization, he has set standards for other U.N. staff. In "Ban Ki-moon", read how his further success in these areas will attempt to keep the U.N. relevant in an increasingly complex world.
