Red ribbons were tied on his head and hands as a mark of victory. Horticultural/pastoral societies in which there are generally two inherited social classes; chief and commoner. His Majesty (whom God preserve), then not even an active Pretender, flanked the girl, still a girl, on the other side, the usual companion for a month past or so. When I turned to her she was sitting very stiff and upright, with her feet posed hieratically on the carpet and her head emerging out of the ample fur collar, such as a gem-like flower above the rim of a dark vase.

One was limited to Konya at this time but would have an important widespread development later on. Basil the Great, the first legislator of Eastern Monasticism, was desperately concerned with the problem of social reconstruction. The action is the same but the mental Bhava is different. As Mycen aean and other civilizations declined and fell, Phoenician civilization saw its civilization peak between 1200 BCE and 800 BCE, and its great fleets ruled the Mediterranean.� As with the preceding powers, Phoenicians established colonies on the Mediterranean�s periphery that had not yet been devastated, and established Carthage about 850-810 BCE .� After cent uries of ecological recovery, Greek civilization began to rise again beginning about 700 BCE, and it was an Iron Age civilization, not a Bronze Age one.� Those Greeks were humble farmers, able to use partially regenerated forests for a self-sufficient lifestyle that could later be seen in the Protestant work ethic and the pioneering spirit.� The poet Hesiod hectored his farmer audience with homilies that could have been uttered by Ben Franklin�s Poor Richard .� Athens was established before 1400 BCE and became an important Mycenaean city.� It began its resurgence in the late years of Greece�s Dark Age, and between 900 BCE and 300 BCE it became one of the more remarkable experiments in the human journey.� By 600 BCE, the reviving civilization had once more eroded the Greek countryside, and Peisistratus, also known as the Tyrant of Athens, offered a bounty to farmers to plant olive trees, as it was about the only crop that could grow on the badly eroded hills, and farming them did not increase erosion.� Greek cities never became very large because the environment could not support large cities.� When Greek cities reached about 20,000-to-30,000 people, new colonies were established.� That practice led to the Greek colonies that dotted the Mediterranean�s periphery. [679] � Also, those colonies founded during the Greek classic era became a hinterland that helped support Athens.� There is still debate whether commercial, military, or Malthusian incentives/pressures led to Greek colonization, but with the obvious environmental degradation of Greece, I lean toward Malthusian dynamics being the impetus, and the other factors were making the best of the situation.� People rarely leave their homelands if they do not have to.

Also, these terra-cotta collectibles included cows, bears, monkey, and dogs.

More than a half-million people died in the Crimean War.� Several years later, the USA had the second industrialized war, inflicted on itself, and its death toll was higher than Crimea�s.� Those wars provided a preview of industrial warfare.� Although the death toll from industrialized nation warfare was proportionally less than in �primitive� civilizations, the warfare itself was more horrific.� Germans brought their factory expertise to genocide in World War II, and the USA developed a bomb that vaporized entire cities .� The industrial powers realized that humanity might not survive another war between industrial powers, so all wars since then have been against largely defenseless peoples, which the USA has excelled at.

According to one measure, Sparky Sweet�s device was 100,000,000% "efficient," which was slightly over the threshold for classifying it.� Sparky never patented his device and kept it proprietary, which avoided seizure that way, but that leads to other problems .� Thousands of energy technology inventors have had their patented devices seized under the national security laws, and that is merely the tip of the iceberg of what has been suppressed.� Wh at led to Steven Greer's pursuit of FE was when he met with a faction of the GCs in the early 1990s.� In 2004, I heard Greer report on his conversations with them; one disclosure was that the GCs had paid $100 billion in bribes and quiet money to sequester disruptive technologies over the years, and energy technologies above all.� When I heard Greer say that, it made perfect sense to me, as Dennis rejected two offers that I know of, and I even heard of others in casual conversations with corporate co-workers and plenty of other such tales from people in the field.� Greer claimed to have rejected a $2 billion offer to cease his efforts.� That quiet money amount might be $200 billion by now. � Those t aking the money have donned the �Golden Handcuffs,� as that money bought their silence and their technology was usually shelved; the �seller� was usually unaware of the true nature of the �sale.�� But even Golden Handcuffs are a fair ways down the path of organized suppression tactics .� The GCs� bag of tricks is deep, and many low-cost strategies can be tried before they resort to using Golden Handcuffs; they can also use the patent office to seize technologies and, in the relatively rare instance, violence.� We received the first friendly buyout offer soon after we began pursuing FE, and the offer escalated by a couple orders of magnitude before they began playing rough.� Kangarooing Dennis into prison and making �mistakes� that put him in with murderers is one of many techniques at their disposal.� Such treatment can often be free-lance malice engaged in by �public servants� and other Establishment figures, without their needing instruction or compensation by the GCs, or even being aware of the evil interests that their actions serve.� They probably would not even care if they knew, and many would solicit �employment� if they knew how valuable their activities were to rich and powerful interests, no matter if those activities eventually made Earth uninhabitable (as long as it happened after they died or were �guaranteed� a berth in the GCs� survival enclaves ).
