Autonomous Unity Episode 067 - Strong Arm Robbery: Dealing With Literature Confiscation
On July 7, 2019 members worldwide participated in this live discussion. All capable of civil discourse were welcome to join. These addicts put forth solutions to a dire problem ☆ In recent years I have refrained from mentioning NAWS in many of my essays and articles, preferring to instead focus on the solution. This episode is about the solution. However, the problem must be clearly identified, and the source of letters calling for Groups, service bodies and addicts to take action made very clear. Vagueness about what those actions should be does not absolve NAWS when Groups and service bodies in the concepts-based structure commit violent acts on their behalf. The conceptual, corporate structure is stepping up violent tactics worldwide in an effort to confiscate, destroy, and suppress literature by addicts, for addicts which is free of professionalism. They are literally committing Strong Arm Robbery* in our recovery meetings without the slightest regard for the presence of newcomers. The situation is dire and we need to learn how to protect our Groups and literature. Most importantly, we need to protect the still-suffering addict to whom we are carrying a most precious message of hope and promise of freedom. I'm going to say it how it is: When newcomers experience violence in their first NA meeting WE ARE PASSING A DEATH SENTENCE ON THEM! This is beyond unacceptable. We will no longer tolerate NAWS bullying of addicts who are committed to the Traditions, nor will we abide violence in the presence of, or directed toward newcomers whose only association with the Traditions-based literature movement is seeking the help of addicts for whom this program has worked. The only offense toward the NAWS machine these suffering addicts seeking recovery have committed is accepting that which is freely given to them from those whose recovery and gratitude attracted them to the rooms of NA in the first place. Often those who value NAWS approval and monetary gain over the lives of addicts seeking recovery attempt to mitigate the ramifications of their choices by claiming that anyone who dares utter the phrase "Addicts are dying", is engaging a cheap, overdramatic ploy. It is not; it is simple truth. Just as it was when our program was founded. Just as it was when member-addicts first put pen to paper. Just as it was when that first literature was freely given. "Addicts are dying" is the reason we have literature at all. It is the very reason we exist! MONEY, intellectual PROPERTY, and the PRESTIGE of "effective leadership" can no longer be allowed to trump our Traditions, or the right of all NA members to an atmosphere of complete creative freedom; most especially the right of addicts seeking freedom from active addiction to find it wherever they can. Forcing literature on Groups whose Conscience will not abide professionalism or denying them literature written according to Traditions is a violation of the sanctity of the NA Home Group. No entity, collective, or even vast majority has a right to force their ways on a single Home Group. Strong Arm Robbery* goes beyond a violation of the Traditions. It is literally a felonious violation of the law. We WILL NOT TOLERATE violence toward our Groups or members a moment longer! No NA Group (NAWS-subservient or Traditionalist) should ever be subjected to violence from other Groups, much less at the behest of service bodies that are subservient to those Groups' authority. There are ways to protect ourselves, our Groups, and the addict seeking recovery whom we should endeavor to serve. Violent enforcement of NAWS norms can no longer be abided by those seeking to carry an unadulterated NA message to all who seek it. Today, NA not only stands for Narcotics Anonymous, it stands for "NEVER AGAIN". The NAWS violence is at an end! -Chubs The Addict (*Strong Arm Robbery is a specific type of larceny that is committed with a threat of force or intimidation that usually does not involve a weapon.)

Autonomous Unity Episode 064 - A Tale Of Two NAs Addendum (IMPORTANT JIMMY K CORRECTION!)
Originally published in 2019; This episode is an addendum to A Tale Of Two NAs. It includes an important quote attributed to Jimmy Kinnon, which requires more context as well as correction. I offer my sincere, and humble apologies to the family and friends of Jimmy and hope this "amendment" can serve as proper "amends" to those who love Jimmy and may have been affected by the misinformation I mistakenly reported. I have loved Jimmy since my second sponsor taught me about him in my early recovery, and he was my current sponsor's grandsponsor. I endeavor to report truth here regardless of personal loyalties or affections, and feel a keen sense of remorse for the mistake (and intentional belated repsonse due to my personal defects of procrastination and laziness) because of my fondness for the man who saved my life before I was ever born. Respectfully, Chubs The Addict. "[We write literature] because there are addicts who haven't even been born yet who are going to need it one day" - James "Jimmy K" Kinnon

Autonomous Unity Episode 063 - County Blues Revisited
So, a Group from Nebraska requested that I re-record the "County Blues & Baby Blues Episode". No, that is no bullshit and is not a joke. That really happened. I just now realized in 2020 as I publish this episode to a broader array of podcasting platforms the irony and parallels associated with the events of the WSC that lead to the Third Edition and, ultimately, the restoration of our original Traditions essays to the "unofficial" edition of the NA Basic Text known as The Baby Blue. The reasons for the request are given in the opening minutes of this podcast, so I will not get into them here. That said, for all those who want a more polished, more focused, or version with better sound quality of the County Blues & Baby Blues episode, I have provided it here. If it is not to your liking, do as the trustees did in the 80s: Blame that Group from Nebraska! (This one actually exists!) In Love & Service TO The Member-Addicts Of Narcotics Anonymous, Chubs The Addict. (Originally published in 2019)

Autonomous Unity Episode 023 - Pros & Concepts Revisited (How The Concepts Undermine Our Traditions)
Based on the essay: "The CONcepts Deconstructed". This podcast reprises how the CON-cepts create a culture of "service pros", and a service structure rife with professionalism, including the ultimate oxymoron: The "Service Resume".  Chubs revisits and more clearly and succinctly details how each of the NAW$ CON-cepts undermines, redefines, and attempts to renegotiate our "non-negotiable" Traditions.  Traditions and historical context are cited in more detail than before, while maintaining a shorter presentation and format. This podcast was recorded October 27, 2016 and originally published October 28, 2016.

Originally published June 6, 2016. An essay exploring some glaring and blatant as well as subtle and clever re-negotiations of our most basic principles found in the new NAWS publication, Guiding Principles which was recently "Fellowship Approved" at WSC 2016 (despite the fact that the vast majority of the Fellowship had not read a word of its contents).  This is the same book the conference approved spending a quarter of a million dollars on in 2014 before a single word had been written.

Autonomous Unity Episode 019 - The Rigged System
Originally published February 28, 2016. Chubs exposes and illustrates how service decisions are controlled from the world level and demonstrates how the final vote is carefully controlled by stating the World Board opinion at every level of service as the information goes out. By using "Consensus Based Decision Making" as decisions come back what the Groups have decided is then re-decided at every level; again with the "decision makers", "shining stars". and "effective leaders" of NA reminded of the World Board Opinion at every point in the "decision making process" (as opposed to reporting of Group conscience).   Chubs challenges the listener to download the 2016 CAR and World Board Opinions on each motion, and then to compare the World Board opinion to the final decisions made at WSC 2016.  (At the time of this recording and original posting WSC 2016 was in the future - Chubs' predictions proved accurate!) The 2016 CAR can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_eYXb2kGP9MH1-O4gp5yUH6fxYX1cof3/view?usp=drivesdk For info on ASIS visit https://NAhelp.org

Autonomous Unity Episode 018 - 2016, A CAR Load Of Deception, & What The Courts Really Said
Originally published November 30, 2015. THE LIES HAVE GONE ON TOO LONG! Chubs The Addict refutes and destroys the essay on page 30 of the 2016 Conference Agenda Report entitled, "NA Literature and Our Primary Purpose".  Every assertion Chubs makes is documented, and every World Board falsehood exposed. Chubs reads and quotes from WSC minutes and the 1991 court transcripts rather than just making passing reference to them.  These are very minutes and court proceedings the NAWS World Board vaguely references with every new bulletin, essay, and memo. The actual documentation is laid bare in this audio with links made available for all to see with their own eyes.  In Chubs' own words, "Treat me like a liar, and read it for yourself!" 19 supporting documents can be accessed at the link below: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1_TND2Qdhi7HfWc0YpvNxSv8g368433wd

Autonomous Unity Episode 015 - Six Facts No One Disputes - Not Even NAWS
Originally published: May 19, 2015. FACTS 1. The First Edition Basic Text removed wording from Traditions 4 & 9 without going back to the Groups. 2. The Fellowship demanded the wording be returned, resulting in the Second Edition. 3. A 60 day "emergency vote" removed the wording once again. 4. The Fourth Edition resulted in a deep edit and removed lines from the Basic Text. It did not go back to the Groups for approval. 5. The Fifth Edition simply re-inserted the missing lines and was created on the conference floor without going back to the Groups. 6. A moratorium was placed on any further changes to the Basic Text for a minimum of five years. Why does any of this matter?  Listen to the podcast to find out!

Autonomous Unity Episode 014 - The Message~Home Groups Are THE ANSWER!
~Originally published May 17, 2015~ A voice mail left for Chubs by Billy A (yes, that Billy A)  spawns a podcast.  Chubs explains why not only all authority rests with the Home Groups, but why the answer to the problems we face as a Fellowship can only be found at the Home Group level.   A service structure with unchecked power will not be fixed by creating other structures with the same inherent problems - It can only be fixed by focusing on the Group; by Groups directing all services and being responsible for carrying that message.  Only when service bodies are created by Groups who are invested in the full responsibility of carrying the message in their local communities will we have services that do not self-create, that do not steal money from the Groups via sale of the Group literature, and that are responsible to the Groups rather than depending on a "diverse mix of revenue streams" which remove the need of direct Fellowship support or any accountability. We will only be free of the tyranny of effective leadership prevalent at the World Level when we truly believe Group Service is the most important and only indispensable level of service. In other words: when we stop paying an office to do our service work for us. NAhelp.org OriginalNA.org

Autonomous Unity Episode 013 - County Blues & Baby Blues
INTENDED ONLY FOR MEMBERS OF NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS - Originally published: April 21, 2015 Chubs makes an impassioned plea to those who would send letters to institutions in an effort to stop H&I committees & Home Groups from supplying them with free Basic Texts.   This is a good episode to direct anyone to who thinks it's a good idea to deny addicts access to our literature based solely on memos from the World Board or conversations with NAWS/WSO Fellowship Services. Non-confrontational, yet hard-hitting and emotional, Chubs poses simple, yet probing questions and pleads for peace and unity in a time when "common" sense seems to be increasingly uncommon.  This episode will leave one hard-pressed to argue in favor of denying our message to the addict who still suffers. If you find yourself experiencing contempt without the facts (memos are not facts), challenge yourself to listen for a half hour with an open mind.  If you don't feel compelled to look into the facts further, do research beyond reading one-sided bulletins, or at least allow others to carry our message free of charge (live and let live) you will only be out 28 and a half minutes of your time.

Autonomous Unity Episode 011 - Back To Basics
Originally published: December 26, 2014. What is a Grey Book / Grey Form? What is the Approval Draft / Approval Form? How are these different from the Baby Blue? What are Headers and Revised Headers? What was the White Book or Little White Book? These are common questions among addicts new to the Traditionalist movement, sometimes even if they are long time members of the Fellowship.  Many times a simple post on a message board is not enough to explain these things.  In this podcast Chubs goes "Back To Basics" and answers these questions with the history of how each of these came about and what the relation between them is. If you have been wondering about some of the terminology you see on old school/Traditionalist message boards or that you have heard in these podcasts, this is an excellent place to get those questions answered.  This is also a good podcast to have someone listen to who is asking you these questions, as it covers not only the basics, but puts the answers into their historical context.

Autonomous Unity Episode 009 - A Tale Of Two NAs
Originally published: November 7, 2014 In this episode Chubs takes on the historical differences in thought processes of a "spiritual" vs "corporate" NA and the competing ideals of "a Fellowship with an office" or "an office with a fellowship". NOTE: The C.A.T. is referred to a the "Conference Agenda Track" in this podcast.  It is actually called the "Conference Approval Track".  The mistake was realized after final mixing.  As this is a minor error and editing and remixing is more time consuming than a simple note, the latter was opted for.

Autonomous Unity Episode 008 - The 2014 Ohio Literature Conference
Originally published: October 12, 2014 Interviews conducted at the October, 2014 NA Literature Conference in Lisbon Ohio.  A window into the thoughts of many of those in attendance from those very young in recovery all the way to those with multiple decades.  NA members came together to write a Traditions Book (among other literature) that is actually by addicts, for addicts, and about addicts.  A far cry from sterile, corporate controlled workshops and a refreshing, positive answer to the question: "How can World Services give us a book on the Traditions when they don't follow them?"

Autonomous Unity Episode 007 - Deconstructing The Misinformation
Originally published October 6, 2014. In this episode, Chubs deconstructs a recent  World Board essay that they have asked RDs to present to the Fellowship as if it were a unified effort in an attempt to influence opinion using the RDs as "effective leaders" rather than collect Group conscience as Trusted Servants. This program is intended for members of Narcotics Anonymous only.

Autonomous Unity Episode 006 - Pros & Concepts
Originally published in 2014. A scathing indictment of the 12 CON-cepts imposed on the Fellowship of NA, and how the Concepts cultivate a culture of service "professionalism". Hence the play on words "pros" (meaning professionals) and "CON"cepts (as in "con job" as well as a con being a negative consequence of a particular decision). INTENDED ONLY FOR MEMBERS OF NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS!

Autonomous Unity Episode 005 - The REAL History Of The Baby Blue (COMPLETE PACKAGE)
This episode originally "aired" in 2014 in five separate parts which were recorded that same year, with the exception of the fifth part which is from 2011. All five segments are included here. There is a lot of speculation and misinformation about the history of the Baby Blue Basic Text. This episode cuts through all of that with firsthand accounts from an addict who was present at the moment the Baby Blue was created, present in the courtroom when WSO (now called NAWS) sued Grateful Dave, and whose Home Group still produces Baby Blues to this very day. INTENDED FOR N.A. MEMBERS ONLY!
