About Us

ABOUT MFSO

Military Families Speak Out is an organization of people opposed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who have relatives or loved ones currently in the military, or who have served in the military since the fall of 2002. Formed by two families in November of 2002, we have contacts with military families throughout the United States, and in other countries around the world. Our membership currently includes close to 4,000 military families, with new families joining weekly.

As people with family members and loved ones in the military, we know that it is our loved ones who are, or have been, or will be on the battlefront. It is our loved ones who are at risk, who have been injured or who have died as a result of these wars. It is our loved ones who are returning scarred from their experiences, who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We say:

Support Our Troops
Bring Them Home Now and
Take Care of Them When They Get Here.

    We didn’t have any business attacking Iraq or Afghanistan. We were lied to and encouraged to invade these countries by war profiteers in our country and one of our so-called allies. The 911 event (which was blamed on Muslims) clearly was a false flag operation involving “Traitors” in our own government and one or more of our “So-called allies. These wars were meant to benefit Israel and the warmongering traitors in our country. They serve no other purpose. In turn we have lost (and continue to lose) our national treasure in both lives and financial resources. The people in those countries don’t want our troops there and our troops for the most part don’t want to be there either. This is quite evident in the “Blue on Blue” attacks on our people by those we are supposedly there to help. Our people are killed or returned home physically or mentally maimed. In many cases those returning are not getting the care that they need and deserve, and many are jobless. Meanwhile the do nothing Republican Congress refuses to pass legislation to create jobs or extend unemployment benefits, and the war profiteers and traitors call for more wars. Lets break this cycle and cut the crap and bring all our troops home now and get them the care that they have earned!

    Business is a service; not a platform for power, undue riches, arrogance, social status or upward mobility.  The point of business is that we educate ourselves and do work that we love to do, that has deep meaning to us.  This work serves people who really need our service and are happy to pay for the quality of our work.  We must work in harmony with the environment, and 15% of our work must support social services for those who are unable to help themselves.
    Who does that?  Some people do.  However, many, many people go to college or trade school to learn a skill just to make money.  In rural areas people often work for the military just to survive themselves.  People working to kill others. 

    Statistics show that most people do not like the work they do in America.  Many people complain that manufacturing has left the US, but I imagine few would be happy to have it back.  Many people are working 2-3 jobs to stay on top of things, and student loan debt is through the roof. 

    We need to transcend this current system of chaos and begin to do work we love to do, in service to those who love our work, in harmony with nature.

    The profit motive, what the market can bear, the quarterly report and slavery to the shareholder are impediments to a healthy Earth, environment, and her people. 

    I think these trends are dangerous.  The Hopi have prophesied WWIII, and are adept at prophesy.  They prophesied WWI and II in 1911.  (See Hotevilla by Mails and Evehema (Hopi) p. 35 and google ‘Hopi WWIII’.) They understand their chakra system just as the Tibetans do, and are known as the most holy people in North America.  I encourage you to read Hotevilla for yourself. The military/economic structure is treating people of color unequally worldwide. This can lead to WWIII, according to the Hopi. I cannot guarantee that my observations can result in world peace. However, if populations are meaningfully satiated, happy and free… and governments are also, and the environment is safe, WWIII is unlikely.
    We need to be doing work that is meaningful to our souls, in harmony with nature, and each other. Our collective chakra systems need to be fulfilled over the course of our lives, and work is a part of that. Right now, work is crippling our chakra development all over the world. We need to be living meaningful lives through our work. For more on the chakras, I suggest taking Qi Gong.

    Angel Uriel asks us, “How do you weigh out a pound of fire? How do you measure a bushel of wind? How do you bring back a day that has passed?” (2 Esdras 4:5). The point is, we must act in faith to do what is in our hearts to do for work in this life, and our economic system should be geared to support this. It is a perversion of the soul to work for money, and collectively could lead to a final disaster. When everyone is unhappy, the environment is sick and all are at war, why don’t we try doing it right?

    Sincerely, Seth Leonard
