The Impotent Rage of the American Voter

Let emotion pull you into a fight, and you’ve already lost. Your credibility dissipates. Your self-appointed moral authority collapses into ash. Before you take action against the opposition, especially if the action is drastic, you better fully understand who you’re up against. You better understand why you oppose this unjust entity. You better know how you specifically intend to resolve the conflict. If protesters don’t hand out pamphlets containing logical arguments based on verifiable evidence or defer to a website with such information, be wary of their true motives. If protesters use violence to force the public to hear their case, odds are that they never stood for anything substantial at all. Moreover, when you state your case, don’t expect to convince the judge by feeling justified and by thinking it should be apparent to everyone that you are justified. Right judgment will forever be impartial. Right judgment is carried out on a factual basis. You cannot postulate that, “The police are oppressive,” or “The Western world is oppressive,” or “The patriarchy is oppressive,” and expect to convince reasonable people with your hypothesis alone. This is why Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers failed terribly with their Weather Underground terrorist group. As with any ruthless, radicalized terrorists of the Islamic faith, violence won’t accomplish anything worthwhile. Instead of disseminating factual information in nothing but a peaceful fashion, they detonated not only corporate buildings but public ones, which the taxpayers paid to rebuild anyway. It’s never worth rallying behind the sheer idiocy of destroying our own neighborhoods to garner national attention.

No Saints Left In The Wild West

How alien would an incorruptible, unspoiled person be to this world? Envision the persecution this world would have in store for that person. After all, he or she would end our never ending parade, our festival of ignorance we desperately cling to. When the music abruptly stops and the commotion subsides, can we then see what we’ve become? The incorruptible person most assuredly won’t be you or me. This person won’t resemble any of the false images we may have of a perfect, enlightened being. No matter what delusions about the Earth many adhere to, this being certainly won’t be welcomed here. The perfect being stands as the embodiment of truth, and humans on this planet react to truth as they cope with grief: initially with denial, following with anger, bargaining, and depression and finally, if humans ever reach this phase, acceptance. Don’t we find it peculiar that the word we use for the sun rising in the East is a homonym of mourning? Did it dawn on us that Buddha’s first Noble Truth, that life is suffering, was known before we even realized it? The truth illuminates. The truth is that wild instincts can never be fully extinguished. Despite any suffocating, domineering society, this world cannot be completely orderly and predictable. We won’t find ourselves in a sterile, pristine, and static white room, and we cannot reach the last door of exploration. The study of the wild west will forever remain incomplete.

The Truth About Seeing Stars

Society expects us to bury our righteous indignation. It’s message reverberates distinctly and deeply within our consciousness. Ask for anything real, and society returns a resounding, “No.” It says, “Don’t bother with the truth if you’re conducting serious business.” After all, our seething anger is symptomatic of the truth a business partner or bureaucrat refuses to confront. The living dead don’t appreciate being reminded of the truth. They prefer their mechanical, implanted dreams, the American Dream, the follow the rules and you’ll get paid dream. No matter that governments and corporations treat us like insects, if your fence is high enough, you might salvage some piece of mind. No matter that wealthy oligarchs hire assassins to hunt any spiritual teacher preaching, “Love thy neighbor,” if you surround yourself with enough toys, for a while, the glaring truth might not kick your door in. The oligarchs know perfectly well, united, we survive, and divided, we perish. What better way to divide the population than with providing subversive entertainment, mind-altering drugs, and superficial, depraved individuals for children to emulate? What agenda do the actors, musicians, and socialites push? They’re practitioners of hedonism and as such, they proclaim that wine is the water. As ambassadors of the Bread and Circus Show, they glamorize the chase for that short-lived, egocentric euphoria and the youth, by becoming too deeply involved with their music, dancing, drugs, and sex, are swallowed up by this Bread and Circus Show. When the show digests the youth, the show becomes the reality, and they herald cheap gratification as the giver of life. Anything good is measured against an earthly pleasure. The drug, whether tangible or intangible, represents the epitome of good in this world. The zombies will pervert anything, including the holy and the respectable, to satisfy their pleasure seeking. Despite being essential to life, the population no longer reveres water, and the rotting of civilization is revered in its stead.

The Middle Way

There was a crazy-wisdom teacher in India named Saraha. He said that those who believe that everything is solid and real are stupid, like cattle, but that those who believe that everything is empty are even more stupid.
-Pema Chodron from Start Where You Are

Is the mind meant to swing like a pendulum from one extreme to the other? If it truly was, then destroying in the name of God would be the pinnacle of existence. We would take on the burden of defending Him as if He needed a feeble human to do so. We would supplant Him. We would worship the same gods we’ve always had: money, power, status, sex, and self-glory. Even the ones who realize the absurdity of condensing the world into two choices ensnare themselves into the same trap. Which is it? Good or evil? Love or hate? Mercy or severity? Apparently we’ve gotten carried away with Zoroastrianism. “Since I’ve been awake,” they would smugly say. Declaring that they possess the gift of sight is ultimately a declaration of blindness. This behavior parallels the way the masses don’t even bother to examine the world in which they live. They reach a consensus that life is more important than objects and yet, brands, franchises, and corporate tribes still rake in millions and billions. Will we then avoid brands at all costs, even refuse to wear a t-shirt that’s violated with a huge logo but was given away for free? Do we see the trap for what it is?

Are We Among The Living?

In the age of cheap and fashionable technology, the dead no longer keep their secrets. The dead bombard the Internet with platitudes they parrot and banal media they upload. Their videos plead us to subscribe to their channels yet offer nothing of value, and their images plead us for validation yet offer nothing of interest. Everyone poses the same way and peddles the same tired slogans describing how unique they are. They become emotionally invested in vulgar, narcissistic celebrities and athletes. They clad themselves with arbitrary brand names completely unaware that they’ve morphed themselves into walking billboards. As this behavior reaps profits, society not only accommodated but normalized this specific case of delirium. Being a fanatic warped into being a badge of honor. Wrapped up in their tribe’s colors and logos, they’re oblivious to their uniforms turning into shackles. If our team loses, our irrational feeling of loss is commended. After all, we must prove our loyalty to a franchise or brand that never will and never should care about us. Regardless of any corporations’ sociopathic micro focus on the bottom line, the vicissitudes of the seasons and playoffs parallel our own. The spectacle of playing with balls takes precedence over making this place better for future generations. The dead are hopelessly compelled to feel a part of something but have a true stake in nothing.

Philanthropy As Means Of Control

John D. Rockefeller

Accept money from the mafia and you prove two characteristics about yourself. First, a price tag sticks to your forehead. Second, you’ve sold your sovereignty to a volatile entity, a metastasizing cancer engulfing the globe. This entity is legion. It’s highly compartmentalized and modeled after Machiavellian lust for power. The legion may appear far removed from us. Fortunately, we don’t personally do business with a traditional crime syndicate. We may very well believe we are safe, but this belief is a mistake. Even though the crime syndicate didn’t attempt to buy us personally, either ensuring their survival or expanding their illegal enterprise, influential people in both spheres of government and finance made the sale for us. Once purchased, the cabal seized control of education, medicine and in general, the means of all scientific and historical inquiry. The masses don’t recognize 21st Century Mafia, because they don’t brandish Tommy Guns. They also don’t identify themselves with street gang related insignia. This mafia, shrouded in mystery, defines itself by the method of their operation: Killing with kindness. The Rockefeller Foundation, The Carnegie Corporation, and the Ford Foundation worked in concert to fund education and medicine and thereby, control it. They sought to pump out not only dehumanized workers with a high tolerance of bureaucracy and a diminished problem solving ability but allopathic physicians with limited training in boosting the body’s natural defense mechanisms and huge incentives to prescribe petroleum based medicine.

Transhumanism: Not Your Dream Come True

Let’s imagine we can project our minds into the future. Will screens not leap closer to our eyes until the interface is embedded into them and soon afterward, into our brains? The story of the phonograph, the radio, the television, and the smartphone should startle conscious beings. However, the bond between human and machine will only entrance the average human. The average human is a fallen leaf, going where the violent, rushing current takes it. Any new toy under the spotlight of a marketing campaign will mesmerize them and if he or she keeps producing for the current technocracy, they will merge with machines and seal their fate as irredeemable slaves. Advertisements primarily were found on storefronts and billboards but leaped closer to us as the screens had jumped from the laboratory, to the theater, to the home, to the pocket and eventually, to the body and brain itself. Film from the 20th century showcased the working grunt spellbound before the glass of a shop. It’s eerie how one little piece of footage can depict the downfall of humanity itself. How very uninteresting a working grunt would be when nearly every thought revolved around buying, selling, buying, selling. Being underpaid and overworked enables the worker drone to buy but still remain virtually powerless. The more the drone sells, the less overpaid he is, but the more the drone sells, the more the spirit languishes. Generation after generation we transform the entire planet into a dumpster, a platform for buying and selling, going out of our way not to work together and cooperate.

Labelling: Not A Valid Counterargument

Scoffing and muttering, “Racist,” does not invalidate the words of the messenger. Observing that African Americans represent the majority in American prisons isn’t racist just as observing the abnormally large population of Ashkenazi Jews in show business isn’t antisemitic. Unfortunately, this rebuttal appears to work on people, even those who are cognizant of logical fallacies. Although knowledge of logical fallacies is incredibly useful, it’s not absolutely necessary. We don’t need college degrees to spot illogical arguments. We don’t even need to be familiar with the words ad hominem to deduce that insulting the messenger does not discredit the message. Even charging the messenger with jealousy is a poor attempt at disproving his or her claims. While simultaneously boosting the indicters’ egos, this overworn tactic, used by the upper class, gains no legitimate traction in an argument. Regardless of that fact, what have we become? We settle debates by sniveling, moaning, and shrieking, “You’re just jealous!” or “You’re an antisemite!” Is it antisemitic to point out that Israel has a history of spying on America and that Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, knew that Jonathan Pollard was betraying the United States? Is it antisemitic to make known the fact that Irgun, an Israeli terrorist group, bombed the King David Hotel? Logically speaking, even if the messenger was a jealous bigot, truth can still spring forth from his or her mouth. Labeling the truth tellers to silence and bully them demonstrates that the powerful have closed the topic from an open and honest discussion.
