Paintings for Peace & Planet - making a Hole in the Lying Mainstream Media Wall of Silence

by : Dr Gideon Polya
Saturday October 11, 2008 - 00:31

The most blatantly unreported reality in the Orwellian World of 2008 is entrenched LYING by commission and omission by Mainstream media, politicians and academics. Yet Humanity seems unable to breach a Hole in the Mainstream Wall of Silence.

There is horribly unjustified mass slaughter (avoidable deaths associated with the 1990-2008 Bush Wars now total 9-11 million; see “9-11 excuse for global genocide. The real 9-11 atrocity: 9-11 million dead in Bush Wars”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/251... ); the biosphere is under acute threat from man-made global warming and Climate Emergency with the Arctic melting and mass species extinctions (for details see the Climate Emergency Fact Sheets of the Yarra Valley Climate Action Group: http://sites.google.com/site/yarrav... ); and now we have the Wall Street crash and the global financial meltdown (see ““Swan Lake” painting. Fear, Greed, Lying & Values, Biosphere & Market Collapse”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/258... ) .

Yet the Mainstream media LYING continues – worsening the threat to the World. In this essay I argue that since Words have failed in this Orwellian World of Mainstream LYING, can ART help to save Humanity?

According to the American Society for the Advancement of Science, the most acute threats facing Humanity are nuclear, greenhouse and poverty threats. For a detailed lecture course analysis of these threats see Rational Risk Management, Science and Denial: http://rationalriskmanagement.blogs... and related blogs: http://www.blogger.com/profile/0415... .

In short, 6.6 billion people are threatened with nuclear annihilation; top UK climate scientist Dr James Lovelock FRS estimates that over 6 billion people will perish this century due to unaddressed global warming from man-made greenhouse gas pollution; and 16 million people already die avoidably every year from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease (see: “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” by Gideon Polya (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ )) .

Major nations threaten each other with nuclear annihilation. The World is acutely threatened by the consequences of man-made (anthropogenic) global warming, specifically loss of the glaciers and weather patterns that feed the great rivers (most notably in Asia); potential changes to major weather patterns such as the monsoons; loss of agricultural productivity; and huge threat to mega-delta regions from storm surges due to global warming and sea level rises (see “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability” by Gideon Polya (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2008 Second Edition: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/)). 16 million people die avoidably each year from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease and 10.6 million under-5 year old Indians infants die each year (90% avoidably) from deprivation (see “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” by Gideon Polya (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ )).

What can decent people do? The fundamental answer is to INFORM OTHERS! I have summarized below the contribution from merely ONE little person out of 6.6 billion.

I published some 130 works in a 4 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (CRC Press/Taylor & Francis, New York & London, 2003) that humanely includes succinct, snippet details of huge humanitarian tragedies in this encyclopaedic chemical reference text (see: http://www.amazon.com/Biochemical-T... ).

I have recently published “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ) that details the huge Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust; see also my contribution “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007): http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/oc... ).

I have just revised and published a 2008 updated version of my 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2008, Second Edition; see: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ) that details the horrendous and IGNORED avoidable mortality totalling 1.5 billion avoidable deaths over 2 centuries in British-ruled India.

I write endlessly to warn the World about past, present and future man-made disasters (see: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya) as biofuel-, globalization- and climate-driven global food price increases threaten a possibly 100-fold greater famine catastrophe (see: http://www.countercurrents.org/poly... ) than the man-made famine in British-ruled India that killed 6-7 million Indians in the “forgotten” World War 2 Bengal Famine (see recent BBC broadcast involving me, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and others: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot... ).

However, Words and Statistics having evidently FAILED – the World remains acutely threatened by nuclear, greenhouse and poverty threats and by entrenched Media LYING - I am also trying to SAY IT IN PICTURES (see “Truth , Beauty & Saving the World – Science, Art & Nuclear, Greenhouse & Poverty Threats”: http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-NvVV... ).

For your PLEASURE and INFORMATION here are links to some of my HUGE (circa 1.3 metres x 2.9 metres) Paintings for Peace and the Planet. I am very happy for these images to be reproduced in the interests of Humanity (please forward them to all your associates!): Swan Lake: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/258... , One Day Pathétique: http://gpolya.newsvine.com/_news/20... , Clean Energy World: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/231... , My Country: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/214... , Four Seasons: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/211... , Bundoora Eucalyptus: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/221... , Deep Mind: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/178... and Genes and Memes: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/181... (both of these relating to Mind and Humanism), Apocalypse Now : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/176... , Jerusalem Madonna (Muslim, Renaissance Italian, Byzantine Orthodox, aboriginal, abstract expressionist fusion): http://mwcnews.net/content/view/171... , Manhattan Madonna ( a memorial for 9/11) : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/107... , Rosanna Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/166... , Scheherazade (for Women’s Rights) : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/162... , Sydney Madonna (for Mother and Child and Indigenous Rights) : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/108... , Truelove: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/110... , Melbourne Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/139... , Qana (inspired by Pablo Picasso’s anti-war masterpiece "Guernica"): http://mwcnews.net/content/view/9547/26/ , Isfahan Matisse: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/144... , Alhambra Pollock: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/140... , Terra: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/156... and Bundoora Arabesque: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/159... .

Notwithstanding the LYING of the mainstream media, politicians and academics, there are 6.6 billion of us and we can still make a Hole in the neocon Wall of Silence. Please tell everyone you can.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
