New blog notes for my WAR on MONSANTO http://stevenjohnsonleyba.blogspot.com/2010/08/leyba-vs-biological-weapons-of-monsanto.html

LEYBA vs. The Biological Weapons of MONSANTO

My 13th hand made book will be called MONSANTO in hopes that whatever I create won't be absorbed , assimilated or ignored by the most hated corporation in the world MONSANTO they are changing food genetically and have started a FOOD WAR with their biological weapons.

Below are some of my initial notes as i prepare to wage WAR with my art.

I have been thinking about this for years because corporations use sigil magic (logos) for very specific things. We have become thing centric- and not just consumers in a literal sense but our personal identity has been branded by these idiotic things. Corporations can piggy back on other things of meaning and absorb or assimilate other meaning even decent. So now we are in the time of the RULE ABIDING REBEL. I thing the real tragedy is the failure for humanity to have a better collective imagination. Artists are the ones to blame here we must imagine our lives bigger and better than these companies that have so much power in our lives. Artist must create greater metaphors and thus possibilities so we can imagine ourselves free of corporate masters. My next book of paintings will be called MONSANTO. I am hoping whatever I create can override on some level the branding of that most hated corporation. I guarantee you it will be a journey. Maybe it won't ahve any effect on the world's perceptions regarding our enslavement to corporate ideas and ideals and the very real biological threat of genetically modified foods but on a personal level I will focus my imagination and will and spirit on surviving this food war and the black magic sigils of all companies to help evolve my own perceptions. Hoping the LEYBA branding will override the MONSANTO BRANDING

corporations have had to deal with very negative perception changes of their sigils (logos) Motts apple juice had to change the apple illustration when people started poking a hole in the apple core that very much looked like a woman pissing. Land-o lakes was not effected by the "peasant" game of cutting out one image of her knees and cutting 2 slots on another to slide in what then becomes exposed breasts. Proctor and gamble had to drop the crescent moon and 13 stars during the "Satanic Panic" years because of hysteria amongst christians. Look how the internet TRIVIALIZES many meanings and distorts facts with disinformation or people citing sources of wrong information. One has to ask why no one has come close to TRIVIALIZING the big multi-nationals. Maybe anonymous, maybe the yes men. But thing how art has influenced science.What was once magic becomes science. It is up to the artist to create the new language you cannot do it with words or speeches political movements or protests because those systems define themselves AGAINST the meanings of corporations. ONE MUST CRAETE NEW MEANINGS FROM THEIR ONE DIMeNSIONAL MEANINGS. WE MUST BE SQUATERS IN THEIR TURF AND SUBVERT THEIR MEANINGS AND MAKE THEM OUR OWN. Art can do this politics and protest can't

yes....... our failure is in simple dichotomies and binary thinking. I know plenty of people growing there own food. I almost died this spring and had to radically change my diet and try and eat only organic and no high fructose corn syrup but that shit is even in house hold cleaning products. Exactly how american imperialism and Islamic fundamentalism are the same thing meaning they are systems that need each other. I am not going to simply take the ostrich approach and put my hand in the sand. When I say collective imagination maybe I mean we all have to move past this BANKRUPTCY OF THE IMAGINATION esp in the arts where we are supposed to imagine new possibilities and not business as usual. It's to easy to have a Satanic social Darwinist Fundamentalist view that all the stupid people will eat MONSANTO and die like they should when it is a felony in 13 states to criticize this shit they genetically create.To ASSUME we are not targets because we perceive ourselves to be smarter than the system. Monsanto has written several bills that would outlaw any edible plants grown by individuals the didn't register them with the government online. It hasn't passed yet but many new variations have been written. MONSANTO wrote the Veggie Libel Laws. Why are corporations writing laws? How long do you think these smart people that do not eat anything MONSANTO and grow their own food will last when water rights are being seized by major corporations like Nestle and bills are being passed to make vaccines mandatory at a time when doctors and nurses are sacrificing their careers because they won't take vaccines from companies that have a mind set that will only end in genocide? Having a them or us attitude or me smart masses stupid is INSANE. What kind of power do you really have being the third party of not big multi-national not masses. Your demographic does not exist and the laws will be enforced regardless of I.Q.s and what we eat or don't eat.

a dissolution of individuality was necessary. The tragic quality of the group was also necessary, the quality that constantly raised the group out of the abandon and torpor into which it was prone to lapse, leading it to an ever-mounting shared suffering and so to death, which was the ultimate suffering. The group must be open to death — which meant, of course, that it must be a community of warriors - Yukio Mishima

The value of artists is in being obstreperous, outlandish and obscene. Their business is to ignite a revolution of insight into the soul.

When did "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" become, "Art is in the eye of the beholder?" is "Murder in the eye of the beholder?"
