D. Shepherd Citizen Initiative (CI) is my internet project commenced in 2007. I am a British writer, born in 1950, with twelve published books to date, including those under the self-publishing logo of CI. My formulation of a citizen philosophy (in Pointed Observations, 2005) is ongoing. I view citizen independence in philosophy as a relevant option in the current situation, though without negating various traditional factors in the philosophical heritage. My version of citizen initiative has included an incentive to confront drawbacks in “alternative” thought and practice relating to “new spirituality.” This website (my first) appeared in August 2007, and includes various documents which dispute factors in malfunctioning British organisations. Evasive political and bureaucratic agendas were also encountered. Issues relating to drugs and alternative therapy are incorporated in the coverage. There is also a webpage on Wikipedia issues, arising from a problem of sectarian activist editing. In relation to British events and epistolary efforts, some assessors have generously credited me with starting an unprecedented form of confrontation with trends and doctrines that are elsewhere beginning to be accepted without question, and to the detriment of the public. Whatever the case, I hope that the information provided will be of interest and use. The second of six websites is (2008), featuring 25 articles. See also and My fifth website is, commenced in 2010. The varied content of these sites link with my project of a philosophy of culture, first appearing in the book Meaning in Anthropos (1991). I also maintain Commentaries. See further my bibliography at the sixth website. Webpage Summaries: PHILOSOPHY, RICHARD TARNAS, AND POSTMODERNISM Richard Tarnas A citizen encounter with the provocative and widely read book by Professor Richard Tarnas entitled The Passion of the Western Mind (1991). That work reviews Western philosophy from a perspective that posits a contemporary "epochal transformation," and there is scope for disagreement in some of the themes employed. The controversial Epilogue favours a neo-Jungian trend as the current solution, and more specifically, the psychedelic and related therapy of Stanislav Grof. The book ends with the reflection that "today we are experiencing something that looks very much like the death of modern man, indeed that looks very much like the death of Western man" (p. 445). Such themes can obviously evoke a critical response. Some forms of academic literature create confusions amongst the public, and the related "postmodernist" trend is a source of confusion amongst academics themselves. There is also the factor that Grof holotropic therapy became part of the commercial "workshop" vogue. Despite the original "new age" intention to detour materialism and capitalist habit, contrary tendencies mean that the favoured word "holistic" is acutely devalued by diverse entrepreneurial "workshop" enthusiasms that are critically viewed by many observers. Among the topics covered in this webpage is the argument of Immanuel Kant (d. 1804) in his Critique of Pure Reason, a book which proved influential in the formation of academic philosophy. Tarnas tends to depict Kant as being part of a sequence in science and philosophy that led to contemporary alienation. It can be argued that, despite certain limitations of viewpoint and the consequences, Kant had some redeeming features, and furthermore was not a major cause of contemporary problems. Tarnas tends to glorify Friedrich Nietzsche and Carl Gustav Jung, who represent "Romantic" factors that are open to dispute. The contemporary Nietzsche myth is not realistic, and conceals a very disturbing mentality. The confusion about these subjects is currently extensive. Furthermore, the attendant theme of postmodernism allows for critical treatment of a subject notorious in some academic quarters for a relativist attitude, a drawback associated with Jacques Derrida and other exponents. WIKIPEDIA ISSUES AND SATHYA SAI BABA l to r: Sathya Sai Baba, Basava Premanand Sathya Sai Baba (c.1926-2011) created the wealthy ashram of Puttaparthi in South India. His many devotees included politicians and court judges. His followers celebrate the multi-volume work Sathya Sai Speaks. He claimed to be a God-man, to perform miracles, and to be a reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba (died 1918). From the early 1970s, many Westerners became devotees of the "miracle" guru. Yet there were numerous defections in the West after adverse internet reports commenced in 2000. It is strongly alleged that many Indian boys and also Western males were the victims of homosexual molestation. Sathya Sai Baba has even been called a paedophile. There are other accusations also. The allegations are denied by the Sathya Sai movement. Basava Premanand (1930-2009) was the representative of a growing Indian Rationalist party in reaction to Sathya Sai Baba, and he pioneered exposure of the “miracles” claimed by the guru. Premanand complained of a terrorist dimension to local support for the guru, himself having suffered violent beatings as reported to the BBC. However, the notorious “bedroom murders” of 1993 are more salient in the web archives. A lengthy book on those controversial murders was contributed by Premanand (Murders in Sai Baba’s Bedroom, 2001). A basic complaint of the Indian Rationalists is that socially prominent devotees in India obstructed the due investigation of allegations. Influential devotees like Dr. Michael Goldstein repudiated many allegations of sexual abuse made against Sathya Sai Baba. These allegations were strongly profiled in the BBC documentary The Secret Swami (2004), and are represented by numerous web commentaries. A problem emerged on Wikipedia during 2006, involving web tactics of the American branch of the Sathya Sai Baba sect. In my case, the attacking User page of SSS108 was contrived, and several years later deleted by Jimmy Wales. The original Citizen Initiative webpage (of August 2007) was a defence against the Wikipedia User page of 2006. The Pro-Sai activist Gerald Joe Moreno (SSS108, Equalizer) countered with another attack resorting to libel. The extension entitled Kevin R. D. Shepherd in response to Gerald Joe Moreno answered the renewed offensive of Pro-Sai activism. See further The Internet Terrorist Gerald Joe Moreno and Not Exposed. The role of Wikiped...
