One of ATWA’s most important projects is the Savior Project. The Savior is a seed gun, an invention of Mansons’. His vision is to turn all of our efforts as a human society toward “war on pollution, war on the problem, not war on life”. The first step in creating these seed guns is making a “bullet”, which has seeds and compost inside, to be shot out of paintball guns or other projectile. Once the seed bullet is at rest at its destination, the outside casing will weather away, exposing the seed to the ground, sunlight and rain, much like the way bird droppings seed the ground to perpetuate the plants previously eaten by the bird. More costs are imminent in the process of making Charlies’ invention into a reality. Any donations for the Savior Project can be specified and given at the bottom of this page.
Manson on the Savior Project:
We must rearrange, and I per say, particularly, think that ATWA can direct the war. You can’t stop it, but you can direct it, you can redirect the war to the problem.
The problem is our green, seaweeds, the pollution in the ocean. We’ve farmed off everything. We’ve tore up all the natural and put our artificial in place. We must work with the Savior. The Savior Project puts everyone in the army. Everyone’s in the conservation corps, everyone’s a civilian soldier. Civilian-soldiers in a civilian-soldier book, that must speak to and work with all situations that have anything to do with not letting the land be opened up and left open. You must close land with something growing on it. There’s got to be no space that’s not growing something. You’ve got to put everything you can plant into the Savior Project. Put all your money in the savior project. Put all your forces and all your energies, and everything you’ve got into the Savior Project. The Savior Project is the book you should write. The Savior Project should show you that you are the enemy.
You are the enemy on the planet Earth. I am the enemy on the planet Earth. I’m polluting the ground with toothpaste. I’m polluting the earth with mouth wash. I’m polluting the waters with soap, with bleach, with hair dye. I’m polluting… everything I touch is polluting.
.....The birth of life on the planet has got to be green, it’s got to come through the bushes, got to come through the trees, it has got to come through the seaweeds and the fish, the birds, the bees. Your bumble bees are dying. Your trees are being warred upon.
.....Everything that you do, you must, you must, You must, you must. You must realize that there is no one else here but you. Nobody else cares about you. You could die a thousand times and people would step over your body. Realize that you’re the only one there is, that without you doing it, that nobody else is going to do it. Without you picking it up and carrying it, nobody else is going to carry it. You’ve got to carry it.
