Cant we all just get along…?

imgresThe common thread here, is in my view, if you look close enough, the human propensity to dig deep inside, down past all the materialism, greed, hate, and manufactured mass hypnosis that both captivates us, and propels us to act like apes instead of human beings, and the illusionary need to follow the herd whether it leads off a cliff or to a lynching, and find, after all is said and done, we all are part of the same race, the human race. These quotes reflect the common thread of our better natures…

“Judgement is the forbidden objectivization of the other person which destroys single-minded love. I am not forbidden to have my own thoughts about the other person, to realize his shortcomings, but only to the extent that it offers to me an occasion for forgiveness and unconditional love, as Jesus proves to me.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, A Christian

“I do not want followers who are righteous, rather I want followers who are too busy doing good that they won’t have time to do bad.” – Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Kotzk, A Jew

“I never wavered in my certainty that God did not exist. I was simply liberated by the thought that there might be a way to engage with religion without having to subscribe to its supernatural content – a way, to put it in more abstract terms, to think about Fathers without upsetting my respectful memory of my own father. I recognized that my continuing resistance to theories of an afterlife or of heavenly residents was no justification for giving up on the music, buildings, prayers, rituals, feasts, shrines, pilgrimages, communal meals and illustrated manuscripts of the faiths.”
Alain de Botton, An Atheists

“Love is a gift of one’s inner most soul to another so both can be whole.”
Buddha

What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of a human being, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the wrongs of the injured. Muhammad, Muslim

“If people but knew their own religion, how tolerant they would become, and how free from any grudge against the religion of others.”
Hazrat Inayat Khan, Universal Sufism

1 John 4:8
“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love”.

At this point in time I hope we wake up before we hit the wall with this socioeconomic, smoke and mirror game we have had hitting us between the eyes 24/7,  every day now for the past 40 years…Technology and a very large population, along with the constant intentional polarization of the population, won’t allow for us to continue along the same path for much longer, change is imperative at this point…

Edward Bernays…

imagesEdward Bernays … I became both fascinated, and horrified by this man after reading a short bio about him and the effects he had directly on the American culture. Bernays was the nephew of Sigmund Freud, Bernays was also known to us as “the father of public relations”, and that’s putting it mildly, he combined, what I believe he derived from Nietzsche views on the human beings propensity to live within the “herd instinct,” along with Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology, and his uncle Siggy’s psychoanalytical ideas, and with all this, I believe, he changed this country into the consumer culture that it is today, but thats just my take all this. His most famous campaign was the women’s cigarette smoking campaign in 1920s, look it up it will blow your mind.

Quote from unknown author…”Bernay’s vision was of a Utopian society in which individuals’ dangerous libidinal energies, the psychic and emotional energy associated with instinctual biological drives that Bernays viewed as inherently dangerous given his observation of societies like the Germans under Hitler, could be harnessed and channeled by a corporate elite for economic benefit. Through the use of mass production, big business could fulfill the constant cravings of the inherently irrational and desire-driven masses,simultaneously securing the niche of a mass production economy (even in peacetime), as well as setting the dangerous animal urges that threatened to tear society apart if left unquelled” end of quote …

Bernays quotes “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country…. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society…. In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” –Edward Bernays

This coming from the master himself in terms of being the main man, the go to guy, for implementing this massive, mass hypnosis upon the American culture! We have been trained like monkeys…This is a short list of his clients of Mr. Bernays… Dodge Motors, the fluoridationists of the Public Health Service, (Thats a whole other can of crazy there)…Procter & Gamble, the American Tobacco Company, Cartier Inc., Best Foods, CBS, General Electric, The United States Government! (again, another can of REAL crazy there)… I mean this guy is the best kept secret in American history!…Well, it intrigues the stuffing out of me anyway…
