Yet another quote from Soren Kierkegaard

In reply to the current events of the last few days, AND the last 3 weeks, I find myself having to express my thoughts through someone far more qualified to address the matters of humanity, as a whole then myself. I seem to be lost, as I seek some sense of objective truth hiding behind all this cultural, and political madness that herds men together like so much cattle all throughout history, and uses us as raw meat for the taking, weather it be politically, Spiritually, Culturally, or otherwise. Inside this maze of information bombardment today, coming from all angels, and mostly angels created to indoctrinate, polarize, and control, in terms of its intent, I will admit to being overwhelmed, and totally amazed at this circus we all have been sent free tickets too, at such a very large cost…So, I once again turn to Soren Kierkegaard, a much smarter man then I ever will be, to shed some light on how man gets so lost inside his own imagination as his imagination is captured and held hostage to the outside influences of what we all consider reality…Just sayin…Cant we all just get along…SMH…The over all of this quote is in reference to “Group Think” a cultural illness which we all suffer from, and most times, dont even know it…

He states…“By seeing the multitude of people around it, by being busied with all sorts of worldly affairs, by being wise to the ways of the world, such a person forgets himself, in a divine sense forgets his own name, dares not believe in himself, finds being himself too risky, finds it much easier and safer to be like the others, to become a copy, a number, along with the crowd.
Now this form of despair goes practically unnoticed in the world. Precisely by losing oneself in this way, such a person gains all that is required for a flawless performance in everyday life, yes, for making a great success out of life. Here there is no dragging of the feet, no difficulty with his self and its infinitizing, he is ground smooth as a pebble, as exchangeable as a coin of the realm. Far from anyone thinking him to be in despair, he is just what a human being ought to be. Naturally, the world has generally no understanding of what is truly horrifying.”
― Søren Kierkegaard

Søren Kierkegaard, “That Individual”

Looking at Ferguson MI, LA, NYC and so on, from as many prospectives as I can, I find myself, as a human being, with little means to bypass my human limitations of perception, in most areas of life, dew to our human “lack of” capacity, to see past our own world view, weather that view be in line with “a truth” or not. Once again I find myself looking to a better articulation of this frustration I experience in the failed attempts in thinking I am capable of objectivity to any real extent as I witness such violence from all sides of this problem, this last few weeks… Fairness, equality, brotherhood, social awareness, community, why cant we get along,? huge question…This is why I place so much stock in “The Gospels” (not so much in mans attempts to interpret the Gospels, but thats another matter) … But here is a Philosopher who puts it all in a nut shell for me, in terms of the human condition itself…Just sayin

Søren Kierkegaard, “That Individual”

“One of the symptoms of groupthink is the members’ persistence in conveying to each other the cliché and oversimplified images of political enemies embodied in long-standing ideological stereotypes…

When a group of people who respect each other’s opinions arrive at a unanimous view, each member is likely to feel that the belief must be true. This reliance on consensual validation tends to replace individual critical thinking and reality-testing”.

Hyper Partisanship Politics…

Partisan politics…Really!!! I think this hyper partisanship politics we are in today is the very reason this country is dismantling itself from within…When I hear intelligent men and women leaning to the far right, or far left, I just cant help but to think they are missing half the picture, by just the mere fact that they dont have the capacity, or the will, to investigate anything past heir own parties agenda’s…Its been blowing my mind for years now, and I ran acrossthis very non-agendized (I know, a non word here) video tonight that really spoke to my perplexed, yet fascinated curiosities in this area of human nature, as it pertains to politics…And I think this kid is right about this being a very dangerous path we are on…Maybe it was just a dream I had, or to much drugs and alcohol back in the day, but I seem to remember their really being a democratic party, and a republican party with a central concern for the countries welfare, waaayy back in day…But again, could have been the drugs and alcohol blurring my vision…lol

The Way Of Ignorance…By Wendell Berry

A quote from Wendell Berry, from the book…”The Way Of Ignorance” Wendell is a scholar, Leading Ecologists, Poet, author of 2 novels, countless Essays, and many books on ecological, political and cultural sciences, and a farmer from Kentucky for 6 decades now, and a Christian of deep faith, But, he does however see the forest thru the trees in my view. This critique and overview certainly dosent reflect a stereotyping of all of Christendom by any means what so ever. Like I said, he is a man of great faith in God and the Gospels, and has dedicated his 80 plus years to making our land and the creatures in it a better place we can all live in. But he does however hone in on a very serious problem we here in the US and Europe have cultivated in our arrogants towards others outside our faith over the years…

Berry states,
“Anybody half awake these days will be aware that their are many Christians who are exceedingly confident their understanding of the Gospels, and who are exceedingly self confident in their understanding of themselves in their faith. They appear to know precisely the purposes of God, and they appear to be perfectly assured that they are now doing, and in every circumstance will continue to do, precisely God’s will as it applies specifically to themselves. They are confident, moreover, that God hates people whose faith differs from their own, and they are happy to concur in that hatred”… End of Quote,

I believe, some people realize this, unless, of-course they are a part of the dominant movement of shadows and cold winds that interact within this unloving, and in my view, un-Christian paradigm of judgment, discourse, and total perversion of the Gospels in the name of Ego, Greed, and the passion to own everything in sight, and to control all that can be controlled at any cost, that Wendell speaks of in all his writings. And this goes both for the Christian Community and the secular in my view. I’m hoping a like minded,(in terms of saving our planet and our children), interweaving of people from all faiths, and secular communities begin to come together to bring in a change from this polarization that has been the life blood of the very parasites that are killing our planet and our loved ones for years now, and begin to bring change…Thanks again for the ray of light Wendell…Peace

Alisa Weilerstein plays Osvaldo Golijov’s

Alisa Weilerstein plays Osvaldo Golijov’s composition like the master she is, to me, this young woman is a priceless American treasure. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Jaco Pastorius, may be the only musicians I can think of that shined in their very own bright blinding singular light like this young beautiful lady….I think he (Osvaldo Golijov’) is one of the finest composer today, anywhere, and after the mainstream classical snobs gets their “holier then thou” heads out of their ass’s long enough to hear what this man from another part of the world, richly rooted in the soil of his own land, brings to the table, they too, may get blessed with his gift…

Police force, or Military…

imagesDo we still have a police force, or ??? Theirs good and bad in every group of people most everywhere…I grew up in a family till I was 24 years old that was considered “organized Crime” I personally felt they were very UNorganized, but thats a matter for another post…My father did 3 five year bits in Atlanta Federal Prison, where they didn’t have golf courses…But we were still raised to have respect for the law and the police, and we did, even though we were always on the other side of the game…The difference today, in my view, is, after the patriot act and the continued acceleration of what that act put into play, we now have the sense of military and not police in our day to day life, in most metropolitan areas in the U.S. …And it seems to be developing ever more expensive with each and every day we continue to not address the matter as citizens of this country…I do however realize the bad guys are coming on stronger and stronger with sophisticated fire power, and the police do need to contend with that, but Im not sure weather the military donating their combat surplus, which I think, has a profound effect of the psyche of both the police and the communities they have been appointed to serve, is a good thing or not..Im just glad the news media, FOR ONCE, is covering this topic which will affect the country in a profound manner either way it goes from here…For me personally, I think this new law enforcement protocol that has sprouted out of the byproduct of 911 and the Patriot Act is completely insane and dangerous to our freedoms and our future as a free country…But thats just me…I have trouble believing anything I see on our network news outlets, and I cant help but see the new generation coming up today looking at all this as “the norm” thats where all this all gets frightening to me, even though I won’t have to live with the outcome of all these new implementations. But, I will have to witness the transition… Im just seeing some ugly history rearing its ugly head once again through mass hypnosis, propagandized news medias, and Governmental Corporate entities with a common agenda…Control…Left wing, right wing, race, Religion vs Secular, fantom forces out to kill us all and so on…Fear looks like its being created to allow “our protectors” to step in and protect us from the boogeyman under the bed like we were children, when the Boogeyman might be the protectors themselves, and by that I dont mean the police. I mean the entities that control the police, and the media, and everything else they can get their greedy little hands on…Just a thought…

The pressure builds…

imgresimagesWow, racial discourse once again, here we go again…Big Brother, just gets stronger and stronger, and we keep getting pulled into it, over and over again…Unfortunately we are looking at the same old story in this country, the power center is controlled by old white european money, (now American money), that has been in control for the entire time we have been here in this land that we took from all who lived here before us. In my view, this money controls the media, and pretty much everything else that inspires, or excites the massed, entertainment, education, a make believe history, and so on…We are a highly indoctrinated people with indoctrinated views on every front…We all seem to look through the glasses we have been given through our own circumstances, and its real hard to find a way to get people to look through another set of lenses for a minute to see the world from a different perspective…And this fundamental lack of willingness to see things from a different perspective is what the powerful use to control the whole machine. This has been going on for 1000’s of years now, black empires took white slaves during the Moors rampage, the Pharaohs took slaves from everywhere, but the Europeans made an art form out of it, and we here in North America really took it to another level…Aristotle writes in his writings “on politics” how slavery was a natural way of things, and the Greeks were making slaves out of everyone they conquered…But the difference here is the black slave trade has left a footprint on our culture no one wants to look at, and the power base is still using this footprint to keep the population polarized and divided through the media, and it’s constant bombardment of sensationalized so called news, who the hell can possibly know what’s really going on, the media is bought and sold, and used as a tool for inciting discourse, and, or comfort at will, we only know what they show us, and they only show us what they want us to see and hear…All of us need to look at what’s going on through the glasses of the people from the opposite viewpoint real soon, and start questioning everything! before we blow this whole thing up, and everybody gets vaporized…Hell, they just pulled off the biggest bank robbery ever perpetrated on the planet Earth right before our very eyes, and left us with bread crumbs, we got robbed folks, families lost their homes all over this country, retirement accounts gone, businesses shut down, and no one held accountable!…Inciting racial tensions at this point is a no brainer for these parasites…It always works for them, to get us, to take our attentions away from them, doing what they do best, robbing us, and place our attention on a sure diversion…Race.

So yet another shooting in L.A. of an unarmed man, do they give these guys tasers? Some people seem to have a problem with others being angered by the race card being implemented in the media today. I have to ask myself, why?…I mean isn’t it obvious? The Emancipation Proclamation was passed after the civil war, as we all know. The South lost their main resource, slaves, so they then turned their creative, yet perverse, legal minds on a new path to keep their resource intact, and created “Prisoner leasing” which lasted for many decades, this allowed them to gather a cheap work force, and pimp them out to the highest bidder and keep the cotton industry alive, and also move into other areas of exploitation like construction…The way it worked was to arrest a black man for any little thing, like spitting on the street and slap him with a huge prison term…The fed stepped in after much pressure from humanitarian intervention and political pressure from those humanitarian movements of that time, and put a stop to it…BUT then in the infinite wisdom of The South, they implemented “Peonage” into the laws of the day…And were able to continue their construction of the larger cities to be built on the backs of the blacks and poor white trash as they put it…Mobile Alabama would be a very good example of this unGodly practice….The level of violence perpetrated on these men for years was something history has buried along with the rest of their dirty laundry, many of these men were worked to death, think about that, worked to death…It wasn’t until 1940 ish that the feds stepped in and put a stop to that practice, in part, because the Japanese were going to let the cat out of the bag as a propaganda move, and let the world see just how freedom is working here in the land of the free…Prisoner leasing, and Peonage made slavery look like a cake walk, and yet its not in any of our history books…Now 1970’s come along and all of a sudden harsh penalties are given out for everything that use to be swept under the table and our prison system is overloaded with minorities working for 32 cents an hour…Today we call it, “The Prison Industrial Complex” in part because the private corporations have now cashed in on the new bumper crop…Minorities…And we wonder why people are getting pissed off, and staying pissed…Gotta see some kind of pattern here folks, or we are all screwed…
