Time to take a good look in the mirror…

As bad as it is, that we have all allowed banks and corporations to place us in the position we are in today; truth is, we have not only allowed banks and corporations to place us in this position, but – in my view – we have compelled these banks, and these corporations to place us in this position, all in the name of consumerism; at any cost. As a collective “we” always turn our eyes away from the ugly – especially if it’s not on our soil – as long as we have an abundance of gas to burn “at will” for our SUV’s, Nike’s on our feet, food to waste &c. I believe we have mastered the art of Scapegoating as a culture, and now we are at the beginning of having to witness the fallout of our insatiable appetites. Bertrand Russell I believe had it right.

“It is a natural propensity to attribute misfortune to someone’s malignity. When prices rise, it is due to the profiteer; when wages fall, it is due to the capitalist. Why the capitalist is ineffective when wages rise, and the profiteer when prices fall, the man in the street does not inquire. Nor does he notice that wages and prices rise and fall together. If he is a capitalist, he wants wages to fall and prices to rise; if he is a wage earner, he wants the opposite. When a currency expert tries to explain that profiteers and trade unions and ordinary employers have very little to do with the matter, he irritates everybody, like the man who threw doubt on German atrocities. (In World War I) We do not like to be robbed of an enemy; we want someone to have when we suffer. It is so depressing to think that we suffer because we are fools; yet taking mankind in mass, that is the truth. For this reason, no political party can acquire any driving force except through hatred; it must hold someone to obloquy. If so-and-so’s wickedness is the sole cause of our misery, let us punish so-and-so and we shall be happy. The supreme example of this kind of political thought was the Treaty of Versailles. Yet most people are only seeking some new scapegoat to replace the Germans.”
Bertrand Russell, Sceptical Essays

The lullaby…

Cointelpro, McCarthyism, The War on Drugs from the 80’s came to mind, along with today’s race for the White House. At this stage of the game here in the U.S. I think we have to be extremely careful what band wagon we decide to climb onto, as they both seem, very! extreme, very! contrived, and very! dangerous…With a Media driven culture owned by BIG corporations, linked to wall street and our Government – that, along with, bumper stickers and memes being the primary intellectual information source we have at our disposal these days – I feel we might be on thin ice.
I find myself as guilty of falling into these cold waters as anyone else; repetition from news feeds – sound bites – 24/7 being converted to conversation; the masses become Inadvertently a devilish means of “people management” for these Apes and Billygoats ruling the roost. Everyone from the blue collar worker to the scholar are exposed, and inflicted, (for the most part) by this barrage, this social engineering, this cultural assault.
Old tricks, new techniques, same outcome. They wine and dine, look us deep in the eyes, and sing us to sleep; then we wake up the next morning finding our homes have been robbed, our innocents taken, and a five dollars bill left on our nightstand along with a thank you note with no phone number. And! if that’s not enough, they come back four years later and do it all over again.
Gotta hand it to um,
they’re good,
really good.

Hard times…

Well, here we are 2016; near 50 years from the last time I have seen this kind of built up pressure getting ready to explode within our culture – for real. I was only 12 or 13 the last time this occurred, but I remember it like it was yesterday.

Same energy.
Same problems.
Same bullshit media.
Same puppet masters
Pulling everyone’s strings
To have them dance for their pleasure.

The only difference I can remember was the broadcasts were mostly in black and white, or a dingy diffuse color, from the lack of technology back in the day.

But, nothing new under the sun.

Same denial.
Same ethnicities.
Same mass hypnosis.
Same political pimping and pandering
By the very same pimps and whores
That sell us on their compassion and competence today.

The election, the media, the meme’s, the miscalculated published stats hurled into the social media culture to inflame this side or that, all put into hypermode; this polarization needed to keep everything status quo, and business as usual – is – bought with the blood of families and friends – either here or abroad – hate and distrust is the glue that keeps it all together.

We’re all victims here
We’re all perpetrators.
7.5 Billion worlds walking the planet.
Each world projecting itself, on to the next
Because each world can’t endure its own pain.
Time to take responsibility, and learn to love ourselves.

Project that! The Apes and Billy goats will suffocate from lack,
and fade off into history as they gasp for their last dying breaths of oxygen. In the mean time, try not to feed the animals.

Hug a enemy – he or she might be your brother or sister…

21st century schizoid man…

Progress: man in the 21th century; consumerism riding on the back of Mass transit, medical breakthroughs, and now global communications, have paved the way for the ultimate fragmentation of communities, and the unyielding destruction to our environment. This, I don’t think we ever saw coming, or its capacity to do the damage it is doing to our entire existence physically emotionally and environmentally, right before our eyes.

Man has a deep seated need to feel safe, loved, and a part of a community whether he admits to this or not. That need also brings`with it, a passion for his/hers community – and the land community exists upon – to thrive, reproduce, and nourish itself; this is built in to the survival instinct of man, and also his connection to the very dust he was molded from that contemporary economics and the new social paradigms are robbing us of. Profit is the new god, and cost is of no relevance to these circus clowns we look to for security, direction, and the illusion of freedom.

In 50 years a total ecological disaster has taken place, fragmentation of social stability through the dismantling of communities, a world controlled by media rhetoric directing human beings here and there as if we were cattle hypnotized by wolves. Our soil, our oceans, our rivers, ponds, lakes, and the air we breath – polluted beyond all belief – humans completely disconnected from our natural propensity to commune – have instead – embraced media, pharmaceuticals, and idiots for leadership and direction. Im thinking its time to flip the script on these monkeys and parasites that have endowed themselves with this sense of entitlement to the point of murder rape and destruction of this beautiful planet we have been blessed with.

“There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed.”

Lyrics from “Hit N Run Phase Two” (2015)
Safe journey Bro
RIP

“What If?”

What if you’re right?
And He was just another
Another nice guy
What if you’re right
What if it’s true
They say the truth
Will only make a fool of you
And what if that’s true?

What if He takes His place in history
With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love and came in peace
But then the story ends, what then

But what if you’re wrong
What if there’s more
What if there’s hope
You never dreamed of hoping for
What if you jump?
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you
Catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?

What if you dig
Way down deeper
Than your
Simple-minded friends
What if you dig
And what if you find
A thousand more
Unanswered questions down inside
That’s all you find

What if you pick apart the logic
And begin to poke the holes
What if the crown of thorns is no more
Than folklore that must be told and retold

But what if you’re wrong
What if there’s more
What if there’s hope
You never dreamed of hoping for
What if you jump?
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you
Catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?

Cause you’ve been running
As fast as you can
And you’ve been looking
For a place you can land
For so long but what if you’re wrong

What if you jump?
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you
Catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?
What if it’s love?

Pavlov’s Dog

These powers, these systems, this twisted perceptions of comfort, safety and righteousness are tricks, smoke and mirrors – constructs of rape and murder – they make fools of us with this dog and pony show we are witness to these past few hundred days. This conditioning has been slowly administered in increments by greedy monkeys, ugly clowns, and false prophets; they have no capacity to “feel’ anything past their own ambition, and perverted sense of accomplishment – all in the name of public service.
We keep buying – so they keep selling.
Pavlov’s dog – ring a bell?

Viewing

No matter what a person’s worldview
whether Theistic or Atheistic in nature
If it’s not based in being humbled by
All that is around us; it’s just blinded
by, its – self.

“The great mystery of the incarnation remains a mystery eternally. Not only is what is not yet seen of it greater than what has been revealed – for it is revealed merely to the extent that those saved by it can grasp it – but also even what is revealed still remains entirely hidden and is by no means known as it really is.”
Maximus the Confessor

“What is it that has called you so suddenly out of nothingness to enjoy for a brief while a spectacle which remains quite indifferent to you? The conditions for your existence are almost as old as the rocks. For thousands of years men have striven and suffered and begotten and women have brought forth in pain. A hundred years ago, perhaps, another man sat on this spot; like you he gazed with awe and yearning in his heart at the dying light of the glaciers. Like you he was begotten of man and born of woman. He felt pain and brief joy as you do. Was he someone else? Was it not you yourself? What is this Self of yours? What was the necessary condition for making the thing conceived this time into you, just you and not someone else? What clearly intelligible scientific meaning can this ‘someone else’ really have? If she who is now your mother had cohabited with someone else and had a son by him, and your father had done likewise, would you have come to be? Or were you living in them, and in your father’s father… thousands of years ago? And even if this is so, why are you not your brother, why is your brother not you, why are you not one of your distant cousins? What justifies you in obstinately discovering this difference – the difference between you and someone else – when objectively what is there is the same?”
Erwin Schrödinger, My View of the World
