Social n Cultural reform…

Just a thought on social reform inspired by my friendĀ 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…
