(excerpt from a dialog)

Great. How about a global fundraiser to get me the hell out of pverty. I`ve been walking and cycling most of my life and lived on the streets of Toronto for over three months while my art was exhibited in the Museum Of Contemporary Canadian Art, my second show there, and while doing my second year as a host on ckln 88.1 fm college radio.

You want to do something useful?

How about ending vaccinating and cripling children? All vaccines are fraud - not a single one is good for you.

What about condorcet method voting and ranking candidates along with the proportional representation voting reform, because the current system fails according to all known rules of math, reason, and what is fare.

Oh ya, how about starting to inforce mandatory compliance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - United Nations charter, especially with the article 25:

Article 25.

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

What about implementing the Guaranteed Minimum Income reform, recomended by Milton Friedman and many other great economists of our time, in order to end all extreme poverty in the world where even in the so-called "developed" nations of the so-called "first" world, where still many people freeze to death on the streets every winter or starve in misery.

How about ending addition of fluoride in our drinkuing water which is an alluminum industry byproduct and has detramental effects on health, teeth, especially for the kids. "Fluorosis is poisoning by fluorides" --Websters Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary. "Dental fluorosis is one result of too much fluoride. It is impossible to control the amount of water people drink; therefore, it is impossible to control how much fluoride adults, children, and infants consume. In addition, many beverages, baby foods, cereals, and juices, processed with fluoridated water, already contain unsafe levels of fluoride far above the amount suggested for our water."

And while I am on this topic of teeth, disaster of bioengineering (that's a whole different rant), here is a useful tip that your dentist will not tell you: if you have an abscess tooth or for that matter any infection in your body, that means you have a virus, i.e.: "an ultramicroscopic (20 to 300 nm in diameter), metabolically inert, infectious agent that replicates only within the cells of living hosts, mainly bacteria, plants, and animals: composed of an RNA or DNA core, a protein coat, and, in more complex types, a surrounding envelope." Random House Unabridged Dictionary. To kill this virus DO NOT EAT ANY FOOD THAT THE VIRUS LIKES: EGGS!, SUGAR!, DAIRY, MEAT, SHELL FISH. Also try to limit consumtion of ALL oils since you want to clear the blockage of the blood capillaries which excerts the pressure on the nerves. Eat mainly vegan diet for about a month, unles you are A+ blood type, like myself, then I would advise not to eat beast and fowl since we don't have the enzymes (any of numerous proteins or conjugated proteins produced by living organisms and functioning as biochemical catalysts - to digest meat, except fish - I seams to be able to eat it whithout any problems. If you want to cure diabetes becoming vegan for a whiloe can help a lot. If you have skin infection or cut wounds - you can use aloe vera or greater plantain or pure honey, also eat garlic, they are untibacterial, salt water will suck out all the infection, in case of toes or fingers, or gargling salt water will ease pain for a while to give you enough time to heal or get pain killer drugs such as blood thinning ibuprofen. Massage the effected are to stimulate the blood flow.

Do yourself a fave and get a silver spoon, since it is easier on teeth. The silver also has untibacterial properties, where silver is present bacteria can't multiply. I put a silver ring into my drinking water jar and it can stay fresh and pure as long as it takes me to drink it. Keep it cold if you can. It's an old "holy water" church trick with the silver cross inside the pool of water made it stay fresh all the time. If the water has no silver in it - it will go bad very soon, specially at worm temperatures, in the fridge it will take a bit longer.

Cosmetics and hygiene general rule: if you can't eat it - don't put it on your skin. Try not to feed your skin chemicals, we absorb through the skin as well as through the mouth, skin being the biggest organ in human body.

Oh ya, while at it, you may as well focus to stop GMO in our food supply which mostly end up in the food banks and supermarkets of the working poor, the middle class, and the rich too nowadays are effected because their holy grail of schooled academia are SO "smart" that they have fooled everyone even themselves.

How about free speech idea and the Bill 10 that was sneaked into the legislature by a mad church man, who finds everything offensive except his own grotesque face and religious mindless meanderings, will make government now decide what movies should be made or not by our, Canadian, artists.

Oh ya, can`t forget the copyright pile of crap and how it claims everything to be private and for sale, even your own dna now being copyrighted by some moron somewhere. Copyright advocates also claim that it is done to "protect" artist (from their art), to "help" artists (to stay poor that is), however those artist who were duped into copyright forest mainly get lost in the fine print, screwed out of royalties, and loose rights to their artwork by a hat trick of ever clever big money lawyers representing big business, publishing houses and labels, even though all expressions, like it or not, are obviously both original and derrivitive and rightfully belong in the public domain.

And then there is patent office out of control issuing patents for everything without even looking into the claims, approving even five year olds claim for a sideway swinging.

Not enough yet? How about give people the right to die and make euthanasia clinics available for the folks who have had enough of this "all too good" life and want to get the hell out of here and rest in peace... (why? well, you don`t want to know clear eyes.) the Swiss are doing it even for the foreigners, so if you don`t want your government to end the misery, mind you we do it to a horse, at least let them or their government/sponsor buy a one way ticket with paid euthanasia bill, it will save the health care money and enable the dignified death for people who want to die, either because they are terminally ill or living in pain, mental or physical, as though there is not enough people and suffering in the world. There is no shortage.

Oh ya, phony HIV/AIDS anyone? The AIDS drugs causing the bloody desease of immune deficiency - not curing - and making billions of profit for the death industrys` big pharma companies, and that is why the AIDS vaccine is a compund of seven or so manufacturers so that no class action law suit was possible against a specific company, and Yes, it is very useful tool for demographic control.

Ending all vaccination is a good idea. A little history. In England during the late 1700s, when there was neither electricity, hence no fridges, no microscopes nor knowledege of basic elements, there lived a mad man alchemist named Edward Jenner who became the mather-father founder of vaccinology (yes, the entire field of medicine is an out right criminal fraud), and in proccess has sacrificed his only two young sons for his mad "science" experiments trying to find cure from smallpox. He managed to convince the king that it was good idea to vaccinate everyone and, as a result of it, started a smallpox pendemic in England, which spread fast accross Europe. The king called the Royal Academy Of Science of England and asked them to investigate the matter, which they did concluding leter that the preventative magic of the smallpox vaccine claims made my Mr. Jenner are not based on any science and declared Sir Edward Jenner to be a charlatan.)

Immunise yourself against the propaganda of phony deseases, such as the Avian Flu (code name for the idustrial polution aka the Swine Flu), West Nile Virus, SARS - remmember that one Toronto, to name a few.

And then there is economy, however fraud it is and fake, still you can ask for M0, M1, M2, M3 economic stats of the overall available money supply in this phony boloni economy build like a house of cards pyramid sceeme...

Borders? What borders? Borders are for the poor. The rich know no borders, they are citizens of the world with multiple citizenships and with businesses and affairs all over the globe.

How about gun rights since the government has them, mafia has them, street criminals have them, the only people who don`t have them, and thus the ability to defend themselves equally, are the decent law abiding folks..., who`s dead bodies are frequently found by the officials... and on occasion there is a 911 call of desperate cry for help... however when it arrives it is usually too often too little too late for the victim. ya, that`s a pandoras` box... What about the capital punishment for repeat offenders? Ah, that`s another taboo; life is so sacred no matter how disturbing it is.

How about decriminalizing prostitution? Without sex workers many families will shudder to pieces and many people will be left sexually frastrated not being able to get laid otherwise, increasing number of rape crime as a result. This is the oldest hipocricy in the world driven by the religious fanatics and mind manipulators, who usually suppress their sex drive, mostly unsuccessfully, and many of whom have been caught to be sexual perverts because of their lack of healthy sex life. I am talking about professional prostitutes, people who's call in life to be one, like the SPOC group in Canada, unlike some unfortunate souls who endup on the streets as desperate ten dollar "crack-whores" because of their addictions - they are not real prostitutes but a cheep imitation.

Speaking of drugs. Then what about decriminalizing all drugs? Surley it is a good idea? But no... that will free all the inocent pot smokers and take too much out of usful twenty cents an hour prison industrial complex, significantly denting profits/population control of the not so secret services and the governments - both being the biggest mafia and drag dealers.

Here is another good one, ending all religeous and corporate brainwashing in public schools and their use of public funds for private interests. Another pandoras' box.
(I will soon include list of some philosophers and good luck trying to find their books, many are still censored and simply not known to the general public.)

Global Warming propaganda is another way to tax the developing nations using their natural resources, the tax which they can`t afford to pay, and make people feel guilty for using a light bulb while the decadent fat is floating non shalant above in the private jets... lauphing their guts out. But seriously, by how much did it actually wormed the earth recently? No one knows. The American Historical Climatology Network released a pr announcing that its Central Park annual temerature figures are higher... only later to be caught liying and accuised of baking the stats in their wishfull ovens. (5 July 2007, Steve McIntyre.) The Glaciers are melting, THE GLACIERS ARE MELTING!!! Stop breathing! So, 8| they always melt somewhere and grow somewhere else, the glaciers are not frozen in time... Oh, then the ocean levels are rising? Well, not really. The ocean levels are actually dropping according to many ancient water level marks... just ask googe... google knows. :) Yes, yes, the censorship... I forgot all about it. There is propaganda needs to be delivered and fed to the masses. Hip Hip Hooray!

Happy Trails.

The Sky Is Falling! The Sky Is Falling!

A Monetary History Of The Economic Diluvian

Past Lessons - Information Is Power

Milton Friedman, right-wing think-tank and one of the greatest economists of our time, expressed his views on lessons of the Great Depression:

"... the lesson that the public at large learned from the Great Depression was that it was the result of a failure of business, a failure of capitalism,... and that in order to be safe in the future they would have to rely much more heavily on government. That was the lesson that was in fact learned from the Depression.... [I]n my opinion, the lesson that should have been learned, the right lesson, was that government let them down.
That it was mismanagement of the monetary system that produced it and not a failure of the market system."*1

*1 In Randall E. Parker (ed.), Reflections on the Great Depression (Cheltenham, U.K.: Edward Elgar, 2002), 50-51.

"Friedman says, "If the Federal Reserve System in 1929 to 1933 had been publishing statistics on the quantity of money, I don`t believe that the Great Depression could have taken the course it did."*2 Information is power."*3

*2 Milton Friedman and Walter W. Heller, Monetary vs. Fiscal Policy: A Dialogue, W.W. Norton & Company, Inc. (1969), pp. 79-80.
*3 Milton Friedman - A Biography by Lanny Ebenstein p.117.

"the [Great] Depression was primarily the result of inappropriate monetary policy that allowed the money supply to contract." *4

*4 Milton Friedman, author (with Anna Schwartz) of A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960 (800 page volume published in 1963), as quoted in Chapter 13, Milton Friedman - A Biography by Lanny Ebenstein p.113.

" "Full employment" and "economic growth" have in the past few decades become primary excuses for widening the extent of government intervention in economic affairs. A private free-enterprise economy, it is said, is inherently unstable. Left to itself, it will produce recurrent cycles of boom and bust.*5 The government must therefore step in to keep things on an even keel. These arguments... were a major element giving rise to the New Deal... The Great Depression..., far from being a sign of the inherent instability of the private enterprise system, is a testament to how much harm can be done by mistakes on the part of a few men when they wield vast power over the monetary system."*6

*5 - In my opinion, these are the correct side-effects of a private free-eterprise economy left to itself, to explore this view in more detail please read: , however Milton Friedman makes correct conclusions about the fatality of centralised control of the monetary system, by the likes of the Federal Reserve Bank, which is neither Federal (it is private) nor does it has any Reserves, not it is a Bank, or the government in its current form. One must note that the monetary system we have today was always in the private ownership and control.

*6 - Milton Friedman Capitalism and Freedom, 1962, 37, 50.

"ignorance about the power of monetary policy is that the Fed did not publish money supply figures until Friedman and Schwartz developed*7 M1 [currency plus demand deposits] and M2 [M1 plus time deposits] aggregates.*8

*7- in the book by Milton Friedman and Anna Jacobs Schwartz: A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960 (800 page volume published in 1963 for The National Bureau of Economic Research.)

*8 - Mark Skousen, Vienna and Chicago: Friends or Foes? (Washington, D.C.: Capital Press, 2005).

Boy, I was so dead on about the below prediction of the economic perdition! The recession is here it seams to visit us for a while. I should have invested more in gold, and I would`ve if I could`ve. oh vell, c'est la vie.

18 Dec 2006 03:44 PM EST - Toronto
According to my intelligence reports the crucial finnancial information about the ammount of currency in circulation and being printed in the economy, known as M3 stats, is no longer being reported by the means of mass media as of about five months ago, making it very difficult to determine an accurate estimate on the state of the economy. In light of recentlly falling us dollar against euro by 30% and reports of high level US visit to China go nowhere and insider stocks rumored to trade at 60 to 1 ratio (that means 60 orders to sell and only 1 to buy), it is, thus, very possible that an economic crash of biblical proportions is looming over the world like an immanent extinction by a huge asteroid. Hip Hip Hooray!

This painting is my archetectural re-design/metaphore of the Toronto City Hall on the Nathan Philips Square. The five human figures give a sense of scale.

Artist Statement.


Being artist is a toxic endeavour. One time I was painting portrait of Dalai Lama using oil paints when my studio manager offered to me some olives, which I ate fast while looking at the painting. Soon however I realized that my hands were covered in the toxic oil paint... 8| so I had to clear my stomach to get rid of it...

It is also toxic on the environment to produce all the art supplies, plus if your pallet is frown out, or, for that matter, your painting if it sucks, this is also hazardous to the environment. not to mention that oil paints are very expensive and require well ventilated studio since it takes weeks for it to dry.

Well, right now I have neither oil paints nor studio, and being inspired to help the environment a bit - being an artist is, arguably, least environmentally friendly proffession but essential for the fuman wellbeing and the advancement of civilization - I`ve decided to experiment with what I could find in my fridge.

I have chopped some beets, carrots, purple cabbage, and boiled some soffron to get the colours: red, orange, purple/blue, and yellow respectivelly. I made two paintings using my new pallet and they turned out looking great! Here is a hint, to get the brightest pigment I would make a drop of colour on a watercolour paper and than dry it under my table light.

People who have seen it love my paintings and the idea, which is btw as old as hell. thanks. Happy trails.

"Red Chair" by Alexander Braun

oil on canvas, 2006
private collection

In this studio lived a very good toronto musician with his girfriend, who was renovating it to setup his dream music recording studio and it was in the same building where my art studio was at a time on king and parliament. so i happen to stop by one day, on a full moon, and was inspired by the intricate lace of shadows on the floor. i grabed a piece of canvas laying around and made a fast sketch using the green window-frame paint that was there, then i took it upstairs to my studio and finished it in oil. it is the fastest oil painting i`ve done! my hand was moving so fast that i couldn`t even see what paint i was mixing with my brash, something that i thought of while painting it... when i have finished, the painting turned out to be so beautiful that i realised that i managed to capture the very spirit of the space and i decided to give it to my friend as a present. a few days later he had lost his job and had to vacate his dream space, loosing all his invested efforts and money in its renovation. this painting became the only momento he could keep of the space where he has spent over fifteen years of his life.


The "Placebo" detail by Alexander Braun

A detail of my artwork on the huge canvas titled "Placebo" which I have helpped to paint with a group of artists organized and directed by Yehudah Lionel Cullman, who painted the majority of this 20+ feet glow-in-black-light extravaganza. Yehudah is a great and prolific Toronto artist and my friend/collaborator since the 1990s.
This photo by Billy Warhol shows one of the figures I have painted - a fire face with falling power lines on fire and the yin-yang. I`ve got lots of cool reviews about it at:
