Nelson, New Zealand, September 08, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- This Time It's Not A Fantasy... We, at this time, exist in a story - an adventure no less frightening, exciting or perilous than"The Lord of The Rings".
From New Zealand, home of "The Lord of the Rings" film trilogy and as close as you can come to experiencing Tolkien's world, comes "The View From Middle Earth", a website newly launched by musician/writer/activist and Mordor expatriate, Joe Rifici. This is not just a site for Tolkien fans but for all fans of living free on a living planet. The site offers monthly episodes exploring current developments in freedom and civil rights, social justice, technology, the financial world, corporate tyranny, personal and planetary health, spirituality and the unfolding Orwellian geo-political/corporate nightmare.
"The View From Middle Earth" is a recipe that blends philosophy and social awareness, marinated in outrage and urgency, liberally spiced with LOTR allegory and analogy and steeped in the atmosphere of the epic war for Middle Earth.
It's like Frodo and Strider meet Ghandi and Che Guevara.
Joe's conviction is that "For many years now the 'little folk' of our world have been under unrelenting attack. The freedom, privacy, health and aspirations of you and your family have been severely compromised. All this has been made possible by the spin, censorship and manipulation of the media outlets from which most of us form our world-view. Now more than ever is the time to gather knowledge and understanding, to form alliances and to prepare to make a stand against the power of Mordor".
The extraordinary world that Tolkien created is usually called fantasy. What then shall we call our current world of smoke, mirrors and illusions where nothing is what it seems?
In your quest for perspective and right action at the end of our calamitous age, it may be worth making www.TheViewFromMiddleEarth.com one of the guides on your journey.
