Coca-Cola sold 'religiously,' Cathedrals had budgets for a thousand years

Coca-Cola sold 'religiously,' Cathedrals had budgets for a thousand years


medieval...cathedrals...literally...had budgets for a thousand years...

Berman, 'Law and Rebvolution,' page 6

And we, who are in the heritage of this, and live in The Great Fact (McCloskey, 'Bourgeois Virtue') that we are hundreds (?) of times better off than our ancestors of just a few centuries ago--in 1800, the world was Bangladesh--well, it's an occasion for Deep Lent, that is, sorrow about what stewardship we should have exercised!

Love in King Jesus,

Charlie 'MoJo, More Joy' Hartman

And some facts about Coca-Cola

As of 1997, copyright date of Johnson's 'History of the American People,' the second most widely recognized term in the world.  The first is 'OK'. Sold in quasi-religious was as 'The Great National Temperance Drink, 'owed a lot to sales being organized into regions and districts, reminiscent of the classis system of Calvinism, and there were many aspects of Calvinism in its approach. A recruit to Coke, better yet a convert, was 'born again' ‘. pp 675-6.  Add the religious zeal of Coca-Cola’s salesmen and sales management.

Stuart Feeds Her Hungry?

Enter at your own risk. Reader Beware.  And All That.

Chapter 1:  There are 1700 residents of Stuart.  If 1/6 of them are on food stamps/SNAP/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, that means that almost 300 need food help.

Chapter 2:  This can be done in the tradition of Stuart’s founding.  In 1871, Stuart was founded along the Big Mover of the day, the railroad, as a town to serve farmers in the area.  By 150 years later, could we have a Stuart along the Big Mover (the internet/web), as a town that is showing the way to urban farmers and others, world-wide?

Chapter 3:  The rest of this blog will be links that could be helpful.

Except for: Chapter 4: If your outgo exceeds your income your upkeep will be your downfall.  Thus, web presence as in website and videos etc. should be used to produce some surplus to get us going.  I’m thinking we could put up free ads for locals, and make some money doing this. So, I’m looking for Good E.G.G.s, a local coordinator, and a website surplus-maximizer.  I have some capital for starting.

Here’s something on the latter:

[I’m sure that there are more ways!]

Making a living on YouTube

Here's some surprisingly easy ways people are making a living on YouTube
John Cooksey recently posted a message on our discussion forum in which he included a link to what the top 100 people who upload videos to YouTube make.
When you view that list, you'll discover that several YouTubers are netting more than a hundred thousand a month.
What's really interesting about these people are the kinds of videos they are making. A lot are simple single camera videos. No special effects, no graphics. No flying monkeys.
For example, the number one person on the top 100 list uploads videos where she shows different Disney toys. That's all. Just a close up of the toys while she talks about what she is showing.
She gets over 150 million views a month and has close to a million subscribers to her YouTube channel. And for this, YouTube pays her an average of eighty thousand a month.
The thing is, you could be making these kinds of videos. No special skills are needed. And you don't even have to appear in the videos.
To see what I mean, check out the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoc8d0gcf08
It has 75 million views!
You can read more about these kinds of videos in our discussion forum athttp://www.bmyers.com, or see the list John posted athttp://www.socialblade.com/youtube/top/country/US
When you see how much some of these people are making each month, it might encourage you to post more of your own videos to YouTube.
Chapter 5:  Why don’t I do this?  I’m working on raising ‘a next layer of social order’ by psalmodically responding, under Trinity. StuartFeedsHerHungry is about honoring father and mother, so I might inherit having this calling made real, as some time.  I also follow Buckminster Fuller in ‘Critical Path,’ who said that he invented things so that they would be ready when needed. Thus: http://chuckhartmanhistoryconductor.blogspot.com/2014/04/what-kind-of-king-are-you.html

Chapter 6: Possible business card information.

Almost 300 of 1700 are on SNAP/foodstamps. Can we feed them by ‘Growing Food, Not Lawns’?

Search ‘Stuart Feeds Her Hungry’ online and as a Facebook Page. edencity@aol.com

Chapter 7: Links.  [More  will be added in the comments as we go along, Lord willing]

Can Stuart be self-sufficient in vegetables
in 7 years?

Not a link, but an idea: Covault (Mom’s maiden name) Gardening. Something such as this: Your lawn, you pay us, we till, we plant, we weed (mulch), you harvest + eat + enjoy. Some company in Oregon has done this, and the second year they were completely booked up—alas, I can’t find them again, maybe others could

A nice vignette: Maybe we grow both food and character.  A story is told, which I modify, about an economist visiting a fellow
economist in Switzerland during WWII. The visitor told the Swiss that the garden he was working was uneconomical, for the Swiss could buy the food more cheaply, given the man hours expended, etc.  The Swiss replied that he was not growing only food, but character also.

Maybe we become ‘Stuart: Gardening City, USA’ or Stuart: Nobody Goes Hungry, USA’?

I have more that I can send on request: edencity@aol.com

There’s much on aquaponics, and permaculture.  Please search.

Foodscaping’ in Switzerlandhttps://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=387491861355808&set=a.262921060479556.48404.261982733906722&type=1  Neighbors plan together. This is called "Foodscaping"


Three things about the founding of Stuart in 1871.
1—A town to serve
2—Farmers around the community
3—Beside the Big  Mover, the railroad
Stuart become the ‘Good Eggs’.
1--A town of good e.g.g.s—experienced gardening guides
2—Serving urban farmers around the world
3—Using the Big Mover, the internet
The money’s in the website, and more.

Finally, I REALLY don’t know about some of these.
I also promised to show you how to grow half of your own food in your backyard in less than an hour per day!  It is actaully quite easy; I've been doing it for years.  This 27 minute presentation will show you exactly how to do it along with step by step instructions for getting started.  
This is not some fluffy 'half your food' either - I go into exact number of calories and just exactly what you'll get out of it.  And yes, you can do this.  In fact you could have this setup and be eating a lot of your own homegrown food in just a short time.  Click here to see:

'If I don't want to, one excuse is as good as any other'

A man went over to borrow his neighbor's axe. The neighbor said no, because he and his wife were going to a movie that night. The would-be borrower asked, 'What difference does it make, your going to a movie, that you can't lend me your axe?'. 'Well, it doesn't make a difference, but if I don't want to lend you my axe, one excuse is a good as any other'.

It's FAR From Over

Oh, it's FAR from over. We haven't really started. It's a maturational challenge.  We need more history, first.  One could start with a book on martyrs, and even on 'saints'.  Then go to how to have community, which many seek. (See warriors of light at chuckhartmanhistoryconductor--I've been working on it). Then some Goedel's Incompleteness work--you can't even derive mathematics from axioms, or James Nickel might say. Attempt comprehensivity, and you will realize that it can't happen without something like a perichoretic theree-one--and by the way 'Christ and Classicl Culture' by Cochrane seems to ignorant me to be showing that Rome and Greece fall because they cannot solve the one and many problem.  Realize that you're/we're in it for the long term, and when the present arrangement falls like Rome, we'll still be here, and we've been here longer.  See Barzun in 'Dawn to Decadence' and his projection for the future.  Realize that this present arrangement is the result of an attempt to reconcile opposites, and get Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy's 'Universal History 1954' CD for $30 from Amazon, which includes all his lectures in English transcribed, and several complete courses on Universal History . That's a start.  ERH proposes that there have been revolutions of the West: Papal (Investiture), German, English, American/French, Russian.  What's next?--that question should animate our minds and hearts and actions in psalmodic response, etc. I have a post summarizing Gardner's summarization on the aforementioned chhc. I mistyped aformementioned!  A mistake, but a word that includes 'meme'.  As we keep going deeper, we'll get to the root, and a new way to say the old, and see that the old saying of the new may apply.  That is, if we don't tell the Good News newly, we may not have heard it, even in the old way. It's a new creation, it's a new time--always. Reconcile that. Do the imperative-subjective-narrative-objective-planetary service sequence, help explicitly reconcile oppoisites, h.e.r.o.

Money With Christian Court TV

Christian Court TV.  Get a few examples going by webcast.  Ask for examples by others, a la 'Funniest Home Videos' that you can edit.  Do some 'You Are There' such as Solomon and the Two Harlots and One Baby.   Or do we want Sharia?  How it would be set up, Biblically, that's another question.  A judge who call on experts might work.  This could make money.  Some are making tens of thousands a month on YouTube with ads

'Shame Interrupted' And A Next Layer Of Social Order

 The shamed do not get to speak.  The guilty get their day in court.  What helps here is ERH's comment that in earlier social orders, women and children did not speak, that is, contribute (my words) to making the imperative.  They talked, but their talk was not speech, speech being important words, imperatives, making the future, as witness Bledoe's saying 'Without the imperative there is no future'.  As opposed to these two alternatives, speech and talk, I have made, in psalmodic response, as in God's image, The Symphony Of CHI--Comprehensive History Interactive[, with which you have been helpful, though I did a couple at work and several with Dan Spencer earlier.]  One could call it 'With New Ears'. I claim that this is to the earth beneath, people made of dirt, as liturgy is to The Heavens Above, and the scientific method is to The Waters Under The Earth. Words, Names, Numbers.

It is in response to ERH’s statements in Universal History 1954 that our task in the next era, the next thousand years—however long that is—is to glorify the neo-tribal social order by keeping small, enthusiastic groups, while getting rid of the perpetual warfare of the tribes, as Israel was glorified in the Church by getting rid of exclusion (Gentiles), and the Empire was glorified by getting rid of slavery, in the nation-state.

JBJ has better work in the wonderfully short and concise booklet ‘Crisis, Opportunity, and the Christian Future’.

With this you get several audios of complete Universal History courses from Dartmouth, and transcripts of ALL Rosenstock-Huessy’s lectures in English. http://www.amazon.com/Universal-1949-1956-Transcripts-Rosenstock-Huessy-Lectures/dp/1937253066

What Kind Of King Are You?

What kind of king, Proverbs 25:2?  One trying to psalmodically respond, so as to help along the next era.  That is, we see, according to Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy that 'the revolutions of the West (Papal, German, English, American, French, Russian and now) fit into a pattern such as this: Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, Objective, Planetary Service).  [Best short explanation is in Gardner's 'Beyond Belief'].  What could be something that we get by responding to the spirit of what has come so far, that would fit into each of these categories, Lord willing, sinners that we are.  I propose: The Symphony Of History, How To Make Your Communities Better, House Of Singing Times, 153Culture, PirateHero (Helping Explicitly Reconcile Opposites).  Thanks for asking, Dan England. Lord willing, I'll take us through the Calendar Of Peace Priming (HOST) this Celebration Of Resurrection Anno Mundi (CORAM, a wordplay => 'presence') this year, based on a Jubilectionary. Watch Facebook (Charles Howard Hartman--Notes) and http://chuckhartmanhistoryconductor.blogspot.com/. More material is in HostUeberfolder, and elsewhere (Opus 3).

Comments:  One Anothering Revolution.  Glorification of the Tribal social order (Rosenstock) by keeping the small, enthusiastic groups, but getting rid of the perpetual warfare of the tribes. Helping Explicitly Reconcile Opposites?  One way this is done is by 12 ways of seeing things, 12 people/Days instead of 2.  Era=Ear, hearing with new ears—compare seeing ‘Through New Eyes’—Jordan.  Also see Bledsoe’s essay in ‘The Glory of Kings’.
