Social n Cultural reform…

Just a thought on social reform inspired by my friend Victor Igor Wasylczenko…The good thing about social media (youtube and such) is, it dose have the information out there to see, if one wishes to look for it, but in many cases most of us are happy just going about our days and not paying to much attention as to what is taking place in our home land, and around the world other then the half hour of news we may watch before bed, and this is a choice, and one should have this as a choice, that’s what America is all about. I guess as an artist, I tend to submerge myself in observation and this is what moves me out of bed in the morning, that and the rent…The bad thing is, from my point of view is, our population is so polarized with the illusion of what “the powers that be” are conditioning us to internalize as truth through their controlled information media, that no one gets past the computer, or the TV to make an attempt to correct some of our ill in our country… (which have been with us for thousands of years),.. Read Aristotle on politics if you get the chance…”Nothing new under the sun”, as King Solomon stated…

The difference between now and the 60’s is men and woman marched in massive numbers to attempt to correct the social ills of those time, and had some very positive outcomes, now we just write on our blogs, and send around cyber partitions thinking this will be enough to initiate change, Chris Hedges, and Howard Zizz have much to say on this subject…Not to mention the government has passed into law some very interesting hurdles since “The march on wall street” to keep mass protests from happening now a days, that alone should scare the hell out of all of us … Pharmaceuticals, beer, and 500 TV chennells have trumped the American spirit to promote cultural change, and replaced it with the illusion of cyber intervention that is somewhat as useful as the tits on a boy dog, that and the wedding between the corporations and the government that took place years ago that none of us were invited to, or even knew it took place…

Great song, and video…I dont know of any other way to make changes other then people doing exactly what these people are doing in this video…Its a complexed culture we live in today, and its going to take many different components of our diverse culture coming together and just putting our foot down and placing this illusionary partisanship BS aside and start a grass rooted effort to educate people about the real history of humanity and all its attempts to create a system that is somewhat void of the “winner takes all” mentality…and insert some compassion, and humanity into the game…We do some pretty good things her in the US as citizens, charities and so on, but the big boys at the top just cant stop their parasitic propensities to own everything and everyone…

Just my take on things…Peace…

Interview with Oliver Stone…

Great interview with Oliver Stone…The title of the video is misleading…Im not a fan of the left wing, or the right wing political machine, At All, since 911 (Bush, or Obama)..Iv never really been a fan of Oliver Stone either, or his politics…But after sitting through this interview, I will surely be watching his 10/1 hour episodes of The Untold History of America…Since 911 we have had our country completely morphed into something, I as a baby boomer, I dont recognize anymore, and to see the young people today who were just kids when 911 happened excepting this new America with all its illegal Surveillance, the assault on habeas corpus, regular drone strikes all over the place, the military industrial complex evolve, even after Eisenhower warned us all about it in his exit speech 50 years ago, and the absolute hijacking of American moral compass since 911, brakes my heart…Not to mention the prison Industrial complex, water privatization, Monsanto and so on, n on…Excuse me for the digression …Anyway, this interview with Oliver Stone I thought was right on target…The movie, and music industry could go a long way to bringing awareness to this generation, and my generation who have also lived in an illusionary bubble for far to long… if it would get off its greedy ass and do more of what Stone doing here…The lines between Corporatism, and Government are no longer clear, they have had a wedding in the last 12 years and none of us were invited…

Dr. Cornell West

Disclaimer: Dr. Cornell West dose knock both Reagan, and Obama, so if you are a person with partisanship roots, this video might not be worth watching…

For me, West as brings an insightful, intelligent, and humanitarian spin to the political and cultural madness we all live in today… I have no love for either right or left winged politics anymore, but thats just my own position, and pretty much dosent mean much to anyone but me…Growing up in the Nam era and observing the changes in our country since 911, and even the insanity of the evolution of the banking system, wall street, prison systems, and the general timber of popularization that the media continues to insight in all of us going back as far as the early 70’s, I think we really need to let go of the old cultural and political paradigms, and see if we can find a new way to co- exist and prosper on this rock we all live on together…West draws some very definitive parallel lines in reference to Government corruption and Corporate corruption that make good sense, to me anyway…Theirs no answers, just the opportunity to observe, question, and be open to new schools of thought that may yield some peace in an otherwise very violent world. I believe we can evolve past what we have created for ourselves so far…But with change, comes the very difficult task of self examination…That a Bitch of a task indeed…

 

Clippers Coach …

I wasent going to post anything about this silly mess we all have been watching for 2 days on TV, but, what the hay, if my friend Kelly  has the concern enough to speak up, then I will too…For starters, this old raggity ass fart is a huge ASS, period, so what, the world is full of huge asses…But when did being an ass allow the powers that be to use your assholeness to confiscate your money, and property, and keep you from attending public games? You would think this guy killed someone, he’s an Idiot and a bigot, and being an idiot isn’t a hanging offence the last time I looked, or else we would all be dangling by a rope somewhere…Leave it to Hollywood to lead the charge against an 84 year old dip stick, and the rest of the country follows like sheep…Sure the guys an ass hole, FOR SURE, but this reaction is so far outside the law, and the spirit of the constitution that its not even funny…Movie stars run this mad house we live in these days…Id like to hear some private tapes of the people standing so high on their soap boxes expressing such righteous indignation about this old bigot of a dinosaur, then take their property away from them…Ill bet a fly covers its ears all the time when attached to the walls of some of these high minded hypocrites pointing their nasty bony fingers at this old fool for doing what they do every day. Here’s an idea… Tape recorders for everyone, lets fill those empty FEMA camps we have all over the country up with people we dont like, better yet, start with the bankers and the politicians…lol…

Funny, Plato dident have a high regard for artists as far as their potential contributions to a healthy, working cultural paradigm…lol…Im a musician, so that hurts a bit…I always have wondered why … maybe this is what he had in mind taking place giving the rains of public opinion to high profile actors, and self seeking politicians that will jump on any band wagon and pander for a soap box to stand on, or a vote …Hollywood …lol…The guys a old bigot with a few years left, I hope he takes all his money and what time he has left, and puts private investigators on all the self righteous hypocrites out there looking to hang him from the highest tree, and lets hear what kind of bigoted trash comes out of their mouths on a daily basis…lol…Start with that putts that made the announcement about his punishments and work from there…

As`far as Allen West goes, Im not a Republican or a Democrat … I have a very dim view of partisanship politics in our land today in general these days, and that’s my prerogative and my position… I just think this mans view on whats happening to this old bigot is pretty sound in terms of this particular social lynching goes, and the constitutionality of what being tossed out the window in this matter…Stupid racial remarks, are just that, stupid, but not a hanging offence by any stretch of the imagination… Sterling’s a idiot, and an old fool, but you start down the road of being able to destroy a man, and take his business away from him because he’s an idiot, its just a matter of time before we all get hung out to dry…As far as West goes, Im not endorsing this putts, or any other politicians poison today, the country has become something I dont even recognize anymore since 911…But if someone has a sound view on a particular matter, weather they be on any side of the political spectrum, Ill give them my attention for that moment in time, and on that particular matter…I’m no follower of Allen West or any other politicians in today’s circus of madness…

Just sayin

Holocaust Remembrance Day

thSome aspects of human nature are just overwhelmingly despicable. Its hard to believe we all share the same planet, let alone be the same genetic materials…and whats even worse is to realize this kind of mass insanity is all over our history, and is going on even today, on a smaller scale, for the time being anyway. These men, spawn straight from hell, have just been hatched from the universal garbage dump of Satan, and just in the last few generations. Mao, Stalin, Pot, Tojo, the list just keeps going on n on. In the long run, God is just, and I trust that…But wile being witness to what all of us here have the capacity to view in this short time in history, if we choose too, has this man really wondering just how long before we see it happen again in its full degenerate expression…I see the dark side of human nature slowly manufacturing, step by step, it’s repulsive reflection of  its dark self all to much in today’s world, and local cultural mind sets. Slavery was just yesterday, and yet a new slavery is slowly being implemented in today’s  “Group Think” as we speak. Since 911 our country’s freedoms have been slowly dismantled with great care and at a pace where we hardly know its happening. The race card dosent work so well anymore these days like it did up until the 70’s, so now ideology is the new race card. Muslims, Christians, Atheists, right wing, left wing, humanists, socialists, and so on, all biting at one another heels just waiting for the chance to toss out verbal abuses onto one another at every turn… This is how the engine of destruction gets started, from within each mans subjective position of “Truth”, and what the Truth is, to him, or her, without any awareness that each man sees through his, or her own pair of glasses, and may have something to teach the other man about how life looks from inside their world if given a chance…I pray we wake up soon…   Just Sayin

Wendell Berry…(Hero)

Over the last 10 years, I found myself intrigued with how man sees things through so many different lenses, warn by each and every one of us occupying this planet,so this curiosity brought me to writers like John Muir, Chris Hedges, Frederick Douglass, Ann Rand, and so on (Though I found objectivism to be a very cold state of things)…Then I stumbled on a philosopher Søren Kierkegaard that took me down a whole other path of observation, Faith, politics, and what he describes as “Group Think” and the danger and intellectual dishonesty that “Group Think” inspires among the masses, and brought me to the addictive world of Philosophy, I may never be the same again…lol…BUT this man here, on this video, Wendell Berry, AKA, The Angry Farmer, I think is one of the most honest, sincere thinkers of our time, and his writings are a powerhouse of painful truth and beauty… so I thought Id post this Video of Mr Berry being interviewed on the Bill Moyer show…Dont let this slow speaking Virginian farmer fool you for a second, he is a cutting edged intellect and author on a mission, and he has fire in his pen, but love in his heart for the land, and the people in it…Enjoy….

Cultural discourse…

th-1Glenn Greenwald expressed on PBS tonight…And Im paraphrasing…”Extremism becomes normal after its been implemented for a short wile into a culture…Civil liberties today, or the lack of it, are the norm for the youths today, they were 5 when the patriot act was implemented and now view our current political paradigm as normal…Our leaders no longer fear any repercussions for their actions, and now pretty much do as they please”…end of quote… Im not sure what his political persuasion is, and I dont really care. I wouldn’t give a nickel for either side of the partisanship dance in this day and age, but I do care about witnessing the country I grew up in turn into something I dont recognize anymore, and all this within the span of the last two presidencies, and since 911…Pharmaceuticals inserted into our culture to keep us all more cooperative, massive entertainment that induces national hypnosis,  and plenty of beer and wine to keep us all unfocused… And also the news media dose a bang up, first class job in distributing discourse among the population by way of keeping all the anger directed one group to another in a ever so clever manner, so the real perpetrators of discourse in our land are a secondary focus (the powers that be)…all this, and the young people today seeing this as “the norm” is a very disturbing thought to me…They did several studies some years back on all the mass murders since Texas back in 68, I believe, and they found a very high percentage of these gunman were on syc drugs of some kind or another, the pharmaceutical component of this human conditioning has some blow back, dosent it?…Studies on the effects of sitting in front of violent video games 5 to 10 hours a day are showing to be alarming at the very least, but you wont hear about that on the news, and drugging our kids from the ages of 8 years might not be a very good way to cultivate a healthy nuro environment…And now, the new way of looking at the world for our children, and us in this country, is Extremism…Prefect…This is old stuff, old, paradigms that have been cultivated, and so well implemented in cultures for centuries is now here at our door steps conditioning us like we were mindless children reaching out to our parents (our politicians, and corporate parasites) for guidance, only these parents of ours bare no love for us what so ever, and they are slowly changing us with these methods of  mass social conditioning….I pray we all use the new technologies at hand to stop this from spreading like the cancer that it is…Im thinking we can start by taking extremism out of the equation, and learn to embrace other views and thoughts on life by people we wouldn’t ordinarily even give the time of day to. This, I think, would go a long way to shutting down old methods of people farming, and get the ball rolling toward a real “new age”…
