ACLU Reversal on Vaccine Mandates
Call for Censorship of Internal Terrorists
Acquiescing to Vaccine Mandates/ Putting Health Security above Civil Liberties
Not only is everything topsy-turvy, and spinning out of control, but there are teutonic type shifts occurring just barely beneath the surface of consciousness. Normally, historically, the Left would be against censorship, and standing for civil liberties, but now it is the Right that is holding these positions.
And it is the Left that is believing the mainstream media about the necessity for everyone to be vaxxed in order to achieve 80% herd immunity, even insisting that those that have already had Covid-19 and children as well get the jab.
Furthermore they are buying into the liberal take on the Jan 6 event as being an attempted insurrection that justifies more stringent censorship to prevent any more take-over attempts within the territorial USA. Anyone can easily see that it was not organized in any kind of fashion to take over the government. It was simply a protest by right wingers who believed that Biden had illegally stolen votes and they were standing against what they believed to be a corrupted election. Once they "broke in" or more likely were "allowed in", they aimlessly wandered through the halls with no clear intent as to what to do.
Curiously and sadly, one female protester was shot dead in cold blood from the back, without any provocation, and that was done with impunity and totally ignored.
It reminds one of what happened when Hillary stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders through the nefarious behind the scenes machinations of the democratic party.
In politics, nothing is sacred and like everything nowadays, almost nothing can be known with absolute certainty, other than that more often than not, things are never what they seem to be.
The Amish people in Pennsylvania are noted for their independent style of living, rejecting many features of modern society. They allowed themselves to get covid-19 and achieved herd immunity very quickly and that was all they had to do, no lockdowns, masks, or distancing.
One might imagine that this incessant drumming of the need for everyone to get vaxxed is not only not necessary. They are even insisting that those who already had covid 19 should be vaxxed which seems illogical, which makes one suspect ulterior motives, doesn't it?
Now, every day, more news to expect shortages of all sorts that will be particularly painful in large freezing cities. Food shortages, electrical blackouts, no energy for heating, food shortages, desperate people, food riots, chaos, precipitous inflation, martial law, state of emergency, activation of FEMA. This could be their plan b. These are looming possibilities and uncertainties. I hope that as the Left would have you believe that these are paranoid, right wing ravings.
Why are not governments alerting the public to prepare for this by storing up rice, beans, lentils, grains, tins, and preserves to pull through 3 to 6 months?
Are we being manipulated now, just as we have always been? Since it seems most information sources are either corrupted or could be corrupted it makes no sense to attach to any beliefs about which news is the real false news.
It may not be equally bad everywhere, but humanity in general is experiencing simultaneously one assault after another. If this has all been planned, how ingenious was the idea of setting us apart with this existential conundrum of health security versus human rights. It will keep us separated and impotent until the real facts are revealed with certainty, which might never happen, or if it does, it could be squelched.
And the powers that be, can allow us to protest and demand the gov't. stand down, because as soon as we install another one, it all starts again, with vertical top down government being unbelievably easy to corrupt by intimidation or bribes, just as it has always happened. The game changer is horizontal governing which involves citizen participation, decentralization, and is virtually incorruptible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8.
One might wonder why the United States government has surreptitiously undermined so many so-called democracies and installed dictators and fascists. It could be because that is what the US government is underneath its facade of democracy.
Uncertainty is a condition that comes with life, it makes for infinite possibilities.
As we move ever closer to the possibility of extinction, as whole societies seem to be collapsing world-wide, and authoritarianism continues to tighten its grip, we, together all face mounting challenges and the exponential rise of uncertainty. It is the sacred, the antidote to corruption, along with human dignity that must be restored for the sake of our species/family to continue and flourish.
What two things are we doing all the time of which we are usually unconscious but can be sometimes conscious of, if we stop to think about it? The answer is breathing and finding comfort. Every moment we are making ourselves as comfortable as we can, usually without any thought, but if we are extremely uncomfortable, i.e. cold or hungry, or cannot breathe, we will become conscious enough to try to rectify the situation. These are examples of how easy for us to overlook the obvious or the habitual. And just as novelty wears thin with time and experience, so it so it can be so with consciousness.
With all the problems with the recent presidential election, something obvious has been overlooked imho. One is that our method of voting cannot be trusted, it really is subject to massive fraud, whether it happened or not. But perhaps even more important is the fact that in every presidential election we never have much of a choice, since both parties represent the corporatocracies that finance them.
So, it should be obvious that if the choices are so limited and skewed away from representing the best interests of the people, there is no real democracy, that it is only an illusion, propagated by the mass media which are controlled by the corporatocracies. This is what needs to be changed, not to look for better candidates. The systemic change we need is to restructure all governments from vertical to horizontal which is virtually incorruptible, decentralized, by and for the people (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8&feature&fbclid=IwAR3HcZvrdRJvRNqMRZ3m6t3hvuac7bTXlxnQn-WjutSbWoWXOw7iW7AAEd4).
The same could be said about our economy. It is unjust and incentivizes destructive behavior, i.e disregard for the environment. The whole idea that each of us must fend for ourselves, compete against everyone, and find a way to be in the flow of money, to have an income, or face dire consequences such as homelessness, hunger, and lack of health services, or in other words, all of our basic needs for survival.
Why would we ever accept such a system when it is obvious that to thrive as a society we need to cooperate and collaborate? This current system is the breeding ground for corruption, crime, and war. Why do we continue with it? How is it that this is constantly overlooked?
Has anyone ever noted how in this current system, those with the most money have the most options, hence the most freedom and those with the least money have the least freedom, the least options. Has anyone ever noticed how unfair this is? I should hope so. Everyone needs to be equally free.
One could say that the current multiple crises that humanity faces is a result of these and other oversights, culminating in many very bad decisions. Good and bad, I define these terms as only having relevance when they are in reference to something, otherwise they become only judgements, which imho have no value. So, in this case, when I say "bad decisions" it is in reference to the health and welfare of our species.
I am watching a bird outside my window. He is constantly moving his head, observing or watching out for itself, constantly vigilant. It lives in a predator/prey world. Our world is similar, but it needn't be. It is only this way when we allow our animal nature to dominate. We, unlike all other animals, have the ability to live ethically. Yet we don't. We live in an unethical, unjust world, a world with many guarded hearts not fully open. We can change all of that when humans choose to be humane.
The milieu humanity swims in is a mix of manipulation, misinformation, corruption and betrayal. We can no longer trust sources. The WHO is controlled by Bill Gates since he realized that if you invest enormous amounts into any organization they become beholden to you. The leader he chose, Tedros Ghebreyesus has on the one hand much to approve of having studied infectious diseases in the UK during the 1990s and received a PhD in Public Health. While on the other hand his election to the position caused protests from groups in his home country for having covered up cholera epidemics. (https://www.dw.com/en/who-is-dr-tedros/a-53199954).
The same could be said about Bill Gates who on the one hand could be considered a great hero for humanity for his work to create a vaccine for covid-19 and his hand in directing the world's response or a monster who has jeopardized the lives of millions of children and people with their vaccine projects in Africa and India among other possible crimes against humanity: "The phase III Malaria vaccine trial was part of a larger project by PATH, the PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative, which administered multiple malaria vaccines around the world. This specific project received $150 million in funding from the Gates Foundation.83 The phase III Malaria trial took place in multiple testing sites across Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Gabon, Malawi, Mozambique and Burkina Faso.84 This trial utilized malaria vaccine version RTS,S, which was manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. The vaccines were administered to 20,000 across the sub-Saharan African countries and included children between ages 6 to12 weeks and children between 5 to 17 months old.86 The trials resulted in 151 deaths and caused serious adverse effects, including paralysis and seizures in 1048 of 5949 children aged 5-17 months.87 However, medical researchers concluded that these were normal risks expected from the vaccinations." (https://digitalcommons.law.ggu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1205&context=annlsurvey).
The same could be said about Dr. Anthony Fauci, depending on which sources one accesses, he is either a hero or a monster. As well as Trump's vaccine chief Moncef Slaoui who has vast ties to the drug industry which poses possible conflict of interests (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/20/health/coronavirus-vaccine-czar.html).
The whole covid-19 event has so much to be suspicious of when one considers that all sources of information are open to question. The censorship provided by the social media and the mainstream onslaught of assumptions that are passed off as facts, i.e. the need for vaccinating all of humanity, the dismissal of possible cures, the suppression of the possible criminality of the Biden family in the Ukraine (https://www.hsgac.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/HSGAC_Finance_Report_FINAL.pdf), the assumption that Trump's election fraud claims were false, the portrayal of the breach of the capital buildings as an attempted coup, etc.
I am not defending Trump or his Trumpeters, I find both candidates despicable and an insult to the American people to have them to choose from as their leader, as well as making a mockery of the so-called democracy. And I believe that those who were involved in storming the Capital were doing so because they believed that democracy was being thwarted and threatened by allowing the inauguration of someone they believed had cheated his way into the presidency. Their motivation was to protect the United States democracy, that as I have pointed out, hardly exists in the first place. They simply believed in their sources of information that have been excluded, mocked, and ignored by the mainstream media.
We can't trust science because they too are subject to manipulation due to the fact that scientists depend on grants and if they don't follow the mainstream, they stand to be left out in the cold. Doctors too, can be ostracized and removed if they confront the mainstream directives. Fact checkers are doubtful as well, depending on who is funding them.
It is almost impossible to know what is the truth and yet people are so certain that they are correct regardless of which end of the stick they are on. This is what is puzzling to me. How can anyone be so sure considering the uncertainty of the sources? Are the pcr tests accurate, are the deaths attributed to covid 19 correct?
Major decisions have been made based on these dubious "facts" that have cost perhaps the lives of millions as well as the destruction of their livelihoods . This situation is intolerable, but like so many unacceptables that we all are forced to accept every day of our lives (war, torture, corruption, poverty, insufficient response to the climate crises we all face, and the existence of secret organizations with no oversight that have seemingly infinite funding through covert means may be responsible for most of the major events that happen around the world, to name a few), we blithely and seemingly naively ignore them all.
Thus, the reality of having dubious sources of information has made humanity polarized, confused and most likely making terrible, catastrophic decisions leading to horrendous consequences. How can we lift ourselves out of this untenable situation before it is too late?
Can you explain why you are so certain you are right?
A long time ago, I thought of the phrase "Joy is an Obligation". This was too much for my German girlfriend at the time. It really was a joke, an oxymoron, but there was some truth to it also. What most of us forget is to acknowledge the constant flow of things, small and large that bring us comfort and pleasure. Children are more often much better at noticing these than adults.
It seems that all creatures are constantly seeking comfort, every second, whether we are standing, leaning, moving, sitting, or lying down. Dogs and cats do it, it seems all living creatures probably do this, even microbes and worms. We do it unconsciously mostly, just like our tongue moves in our mouth to place food in the best place to chew without us having to think about it.
We are both conscious and unconscious all of our waking time. We can only be conscious of the tip of the iceberg and the majority of what is, we miss entirely, so no matter how conscious we imagine we are we are always much more unconscious of all there is to be conscious of.
We share with all living creatures the same purpose; to eat and reproduce. Can you imagine what a job it is to feed every living entity on the planet a few meals a day every day of the year. So many open, hungry mouths, from microbes to whales.
However humans can have more purposes than this if we so choose. We can be love, we can give love in infinite ways as well as receive it. It could be a purpose reserved for humans, though it is possible that other creatures can be love too.
If a fruit tree has any kind of consciousness, we could imagine that by creating fruit, and feeding and providing a home for many creatures while at the same time seeding the continuance of its species, that they are loving plants or we could simply be anthropomorphizing. Science hasn't figured this out yet, though there is more and more evidence in this direction, like the mycelial networks that exist for miles under the ground and seem to communicate chemically.
Time, like friction, wears novelty away, the novelty of a new relationship, or a new house, or a new country, a vista, etc.. After a while the novelty is gone and you are left with what it really is without the patina of excitement. And so, one might say, that things must withstand the test of time, if the thrills of discovery are to last or not. The intoxication of the "new" is sobered by time. It is like coming down from being "high" on something. The "freshness" disappears and one can be left with a stale taste in one's mouth, so to speak.
We are then faced with the challenge of keeping it "fresh". It is like when someone is taking a photo of you, and they say "smile", and then they take forever to snap the shot and your smile loses its vitality and becomes stale and fake looking, or the novelty of a new born child fades into the deep and huge responsibility which comes with raising a child for many years, the sobering qualities of everyday life; we all have to deal with it.
If it is too much, you might feel depressed. If you are strong inside or clever, you find ways to keep things fresh. It is something that is done often without any thought or consciousness of this wearing away, we just do it in our constant pursuit of happiness. It is one of those areas in life that remains pretty much unexamined, it seems.
It is exciting to discover elements of our shared existence that may have been missed or overlooked and to bring them to light. Panning for gold in the nuances of existence, which can be very much like finding precious nuggets in the silty waters of a river.
One can enjoy exploring and adventure without ever getting up from one's chair, and I am not speaking of vicariously experiencing as one might do, watching a film or reading a book. Since life as we know it, through the gift of consciousness which we all have, has seemingly infinite possibilities, there is no end to what we might uncover, through the process of introspection, if we are open enough to take the time to think, to imagine, because one idea can lead to a whole tree of ideas, starting from a stem or seed of one thought and branching out and even producing flowers and fruit. Much like this contemplation.
One could also imagine that it is through our consciousness that we are able to keep things fresh and novel, and without this, one might suffer from boredom. If however, our consciousness becomes rigid or rutted into deep grooves that are confining and repetitious, it becomes difficult to keep a fresh outlook and boredom, ennui, depression are the results. Drugs and alcohol are the easy fixes that are often resorted to, or serial sex, or whatever solution that people can find, maybe simply, eating. These are all mediocre solutions to the problem of keeping life fresh and novel and are very commonplace, and it seems that it might be wise to avoid these as much as possible.
Since this is an area which hasn't been studied much as far as I know, I can only guess at what might be a healthy and effective solution, because I am someone who probably has more questions than answers. It really seems as though it is all about the journey rather than then the end of the journey, the goal, the answer, or the treasure. The journey is our life, and the treasure can be found between the seconds, if we can notice what is making us feel good. We all know how it is going to end.
Spontaneity seems to be quite important, improvising all the way, as we do, just naturally. That is why I don't like to rely on stories or jokes that I would have to repeat to keep people entertained or to enliven a conversation. I would rather keep it fresh, relying only on the unknown, relying on my wit.
To dwell in the past occasionally is not a crime, though it might promote stagnancy. It is by being in the present which is always new that one keeps things novel and original. But that is assuming that one's present is not tedious, mundane, or painful, or if it is, to go within to find the extraordinary in what seems extra ordinary.
There are many tricks that we often seem to do to keep things interesting, without being very aware that we are doing it. The main one perhaps is to be aware of what is making us feel good in as many moments as we can. This is a skill, a mostly unconscious skill that happy people probably have and can be honed by making it a conscious skill. It is very similar to being grateful all the time, a form of enlightenment.
When I was born, Teilhard de Chardin wrote in 1945, "the inception of a second phase of human reflexion (this time not merely individual but collective), then it must mean that the phylum is reconstituting itself above our heads in a new form, a new ramification, no longer of divergence but of convergence; and consequently it is the Sense of Evolution which, suppressing the spirit of egoism, is of its own right springing to new life in our hearts, and in such a way as to counteract those elements in the forces of collectivization (centralization of gov't.) which are poisonous to Life."
76 years later, now, it is clearly taking form and aggregating. We, and many others are participating in this. I am not sure if it is the phylum which is chordates (animals with spinal chords), I see it as more to do with our species Homo Sapiens, sapiens refers to wise. We need to wisen up right now. It is obvious we have been collectively destroying our biosphere in which we depend on for life and that hasn't been very wise.
It is our basic underlying systems that have allowed for this and this is what needs to be immediately changed if we wish to save us from the looming extinction events; our methods of managing and organizing which we call government and which itself is governed by our economic system that underlies and undermines how we manage to get things done, if we wish to co-create a regenerative, ethical, and just world for all.
One relatively simple solution is to restructure they way we govern or organize from vertical to horizontal which is virtually incorruptible, by and for the people, more effective and efficient, and much more democratic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8&feature&fbclid=IwAR3HcZvrdRJvRNqMRZ3m6t3hvuac7bTXlxnQn-WjutSbWoWXOw7iW7AAEd4.
And come up with an economic system that incentivizes, cooperation, compassion, collaboration, kindness, integrity, ecological sensitivity, reciprocity and justice for all. There are many ideas out there.
The problems we face are extremely complex and multifarious and the best solutions are most elegant and viable when they are as simple as possible. There are so many great ideas that are out there, each in their own areas, i.e. regenerative agriculture, soil restoration ideas, localization, in transportation, open source tool making, etc. etc.
It seems obvious to me that we need to use the internet to organize all these disparate activities and projects in such a way that collaboration, organizing, and accessibility to innovations and best ideas are made easy as soon as possible. And while humanity wakes up to its implicit complicity of which most all of us are guilty of by allowing the daily atrocities for centuries (war, poverty, corruption, ecological destruction for examples) to persist and that all life has had to endure and begin to assume our proper role as humane, ethical beings and to see ourselves as a part of something greater than our individualistic identities, that is, a part of the web of life.
There may be some truth in that what is outside is a reflection of what is inside, though in some ways this may be simplistic, since in reality perhaps, it may be a bit more complicated than that and not so pat. In any case, it is clear that humanity must develop a far more profound understanding of who we really are than the individualistic one that living under capitalism has engendered.
It is all about self organizing and the question is can humanity organize in time to make the necessary systemic changes? utopiacornucopia.org
We are living out our daze these days. Think about it, humanity is in a daze and has been for a long time. We have allowed such grave injustices to go on for far too long and we still are. In 2020 the U.S. gov't. collected $3.42 trillion in revenue and spent $6.55 trillion (https://datalab.usaspending.gov/americas-finance-guide/). When it comes to U.S. spending priorities, the numbers seem especially misguided in an era of tight budgets to come. By the Department of Defense’s own accounting, taxpayers spent $13.34 trillion on the U.S. military from 2000 through fiscal year 2019 in inflation-adjusted 2020 dollars. Add to that another $3.18 trillion for the Veterans Administration, and the yearly average comes to a whopping $826 billion (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/its-time-to-rein-in-inflated-military-budgets/).
The report, from the Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs at Brown University, also finds that more than 801,000 people have died as a direct result of fighting. Of those, more than 335,000 have been civilians. Another 21 million people have been displaced due to violence. Hence, the world refugee problem which the U.S. created with impunity.
Money can be used to control. The IMF controls countries by offering gigantic loans beyond the capabilities of countries to pay back, and thereby can demand "conditions" of those countries to offset their vulnerable financial positions (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btF6nKHo2i0&t=262s).
Billionaires can control large institutions by making them dependent on their huge donations, i.e. WHO, CDC (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation). Lobbying is legal in the U.S. which is tantamount to legalized bribery, whereby individual billionaires and corporatocracies can control those who are supposed to represent the people, rather than their (those with tons of money) individual interests. I am sure most everyone knows this, but oddly, it is accepted, when really all of it is clearly unacceptable. This demonstrates "the daze" that I am referring to.
But "the daze" extends much further than this. The daze about the censorship of the internet, the social media, the mainstream media, the manipulation of the thinking of the masses. Censor everything against the mainstream story, and hammer, hammer out the lies, over and over again until it is accepted by almost everyone as TRUTH! This method of manipulation is old and it works very well as anyone can see right now.
Besides, what divides us is that some people believe that their sources for information are reliable while others believe in their sources, thus the polarity, when the reality is that it is almost impossible to know what sources are really reliable, and hence the general confusion. This clearly points to the great possibility that the virus and everything is a manipulation.
The people in all of our confusion, division, and dazedness are not necessarily stupid, we do have the intelligence once the information that we receive is accurate to make intelligent choices as opposed to all the suicidal choices that has brought us to the brink of extinction and possible totalitarianism.
But first we need to be in charge of our lives and not recklessly letting others assume our responsibilities (i.e. corruptible politicians). To do this we need to restructure how we allow ourselves to be governed/controlled. Horizontal governing/organizing/managing is by and for the people, decentralized, more democratic, without politicians or lobbyists, and is virtually incorruptible! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8&feature&fbclid=IwAR3HcZvrdRJvRNqMRZ3m6t3hvuac7bTXlxnQn-WjutSbWoWXOw7iW7AAEd4.
Amongst Jewish scholars and philosophical gourmands, a debate rages over which is more primary, the bagel, or the hole in the bagel? Now it seems that they share equally in importance. The synthesis of yin and yang is what we and everything is.
Recently, it has been discovered that the sun controls the climate/ weather of the Earth and that the black hole in the center of our galaxy controls the sun, and one can imagine that there is some kind of line that extends perhaps spiraling into infinity, something like what happens in the brain, when information or stimulus from outside enters and triggers a series of instantaneous synapses which end in a decision or thought, with no apparent center for making the decisions, it gives one a picture of how the universe or better, all that exists functions, that is, totally decentralized, with no "authority", maybe. there is no "it", there is only everything, just as when you ask yourself, who am I and you search and search, but in the end there is nothing that you can find, there is no "I" there is only an awareness that one is aware, with no location for this awareness, except that it seems to be somewhere in
the vast circumlocutions of the brain, and there is the sense that all is connected, that may be, by the way, the way our societies should function.
This conforms with the idea of "God" is one, the whole/ hole.
Or that nothing is everything, which is after all one of the meanings of Mofwoofoo, the mystical clown name, which was placed inside my consciousness one day, while riding on my motorcycle back in the 90's, which I adopted as my pet name. It also means if you take yourself too seriously, I probably won't take you too seriously, though it applies specifically to myself. Its kind of a joke name, which unfortunately is somewhat rare in today's overly serious world.
Of course, there is a lot to be serious about. But can you take things seriously in a light hearted way, like a divine clown. That is really being zen, which leads to opening up to love, a life-long process. Now, I am finally realizing that when I pay too much attention to the words of someone that I am with, I may be missing the deeper energy exchange that lies beneath and beyond the words. I am being too literal. This could be a big mistake because I wish to connect more deeply, on the level of love.
Awakening to love, is a life long journey, and the earlier you begin, the better. I started very late, but really, better late, than never. Living in community (Chambalabamba) is all about living in love. Almost every act one does, is an act of love for either individuals or for the whole community. It certainly accelerates the process of opening to love.
Footnote; My great, great grandfather lived in the old country, lithuania. he was quite eccentric and would wonder from cafe to cafe collecting bagelholes in his sack which he always schlepped (carried) as though it was a great weight, though everyone knows bagelholes are weightless. He is revered as a founder of the bagelhole sect (non-materialists) of judaism.
Clearly these are the days of redemption. Much is being revealed (https://unrig.net/?utm_content=12265081&utm_medium=Email&utm_name=Id&utm_source=Actionetics&utm_term=Email&fbclid=IwAR0DBezGThCxamkSoHCK2eE-5kJikdg4n_-HFwHVnS8hqV-MroGL5obK6XM). The treatment of Julian Assange is emblematic of what is at stake.
It seems that all of humanity on every level, individually and collectively, is being challenged to the extreme, and it could get worse, especially if we don't meet those challenges. Everyone is being called to rise to their highest, to come into their power. It is a do or die situation.
People are dying from the virus or whatever it is. Governments are restricting our liberties deeper and wider every moment. Many people have no source of income. Relationships are aggravated and at risk, suicide is on the rise. Clearly the capitalist system has and is failing us and is bringing us to the brink, having led to the destruction of our biosphere which all life depends on.
The pressure most people feel throughout their lives to be in the money stream, to find a viable living income is extreme and lasts virtually every day of our lives. People are so accustomed to this and it is so widespread, that it is hardly questioned and it seems totally accepted, when in reality it is not acceptable. Each day 25,000 people die from lack of food (https://www.un.org/en/chronicle/article/losing-25000-hunger-every-day#:~:text=Each%20day%2C%2025%2C000%20people%2C%20including,million%20into%20poverty%20and%20hunger.) Compared to daily deaths by covid 19, though these figures are dubious, the highest ever is around 17,500 (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-death-toll/).
The immediate danger of the virus has garnered the world's attention and engendered huge actions, much of which has caused even more damage and taking away our civil liberties and our abilities to survive with money, while putting aside the necessary actions to avoid the much more egregious danger of the oncoming extinction events caused by our disregard for the biosphere which we depend on. One needs no psychiatric training to observe how insane humanity seems to be.
Just the fact that many of our leaders are willing to bomb, kill and maim huge numbers of people that have created the gigantic world-wide refugee problems with impunity for whatever reasons they can produce to justify their actions is another clear sign that our leaders are psychopaths. The insane being led by psychopaths, the blind leading the blind; welcome extinction.
Let's assume that there are still many exceptions to the rule, that there are still a small percentage of humanity who can see what is going on and what needs to be done. Our hope lies with them (us). We are the ones that the fate of humanity hinges on, in my humble opinion. We cannot look to the World Economic Forum to save us, they want to continue with the same suicidal structures, tinted green, with a humanitarian glaze, pounding for the "4th industrial revolution". They are not calling for the needed profound systemic changes that will bring us to a just, regenerative, and ethical world where the needs of all humanity will finally be made easily accessible and all will be included within the human family.
Every day that our species is under the control of these insane oligarchs, our chances for freedom and survival dims and this is what first must be addressed. This is what is perhaps the most important of the multitudinous amount of things that are being overlooked and not addressed. It matters not, the changing of the guards, as history so clearly demonstrates. What really is clearly needed is to restructure all forms of governing/ organizing/ managing from top down, centralized, vertical to bottom up, decentralized, horizontal which is much more democratic, eliminates politicians and lobbyists, is more effective and efficient, by and for the people, totally feasible, and virtually incorruptible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8&feature&fbclid=IwAR3HcZvrdRJvRNqMRZ3m6t3hvuac7bTXlxnQn-WjutSbWoWXOw7iW7AAEd4.
This option is out of the box for most everyone. Elections continue as though they matter, which they do, but not profoundly enough. In most countries it is a choice between horrible and hideous, which passes as democracy. Like so many things, it is clearly an illusion.
We (the activists of the world) can save the day and co-create a beautiful world of infinite possibilities for everyone if we can have our way. And our way is to connect all the millions of disparate groups, projects, and initiatives that are already working to restore the planet and move us to a new ethical and sane paradigm that is inclusive, through a network of networks with state of the art tools for collaboration and organizing. We, along with others are in the process of doing this and will need some time before it is fully ready. The challenge is daunting but clear and we, with all of our forces and passion go to meet it. utopiacornucopia.org
I have at least 10 times more microbial cells than human ones. My consciousness is minimal in relation to what there is to be conscious of, I am mostly only aware of the tip of the iceberg, the rest (under water) escapes my consciousness. My brain creates the illusion of me having a body, rather than the actuality of being mostly empty space. My idea of myself is a construct, created mostly unconsciously, relative to my conditioning through experiences, circumstances, and propaganda which I have mistakenly identified with. It is constantly changing and operates mostly without the need of my consciousness. It is corporeal and exists only for a limited time. I am conscious of being conscious. I am a verb, and the verb is love. This is how we are all connected.
How is it that so many people seem unethical and perpetrate trauma on others? Is it because we live in a world that is essentially traumatic? It seems that people who are heavily traumatized may lose their ability to empathize and hence, experience separation from others, and become capable of hurting others without remorse. . Just as most of us will kill an insect if it enters our house without much remorse, there are people who will kill others (soldiers at war as one example) or exploit, rape, hurt, or even torture others with little or no remorse. The pedophiles, the fathers that abuse their daughters sexually, one can't help but wonder how anyone could be so cruel to their own children. Often it is said that child abusers were abused as children and it is their trauma which they carry that makes them act in this inhumane way.
One might imagine that the way our societies are managed, with its propaganda, it's cruelty, its lies, its trickery, its dysfunctional families, its corruption, its scarcity and financial pressures, its colonialism, its injustices and atrocities, that we are all collectively traumatized and a vicious circle or spiral is created, and it perpetuates and increases. Then, how to break through this spiraling self-destructing tendency? It seems impossible, but we must find a way.
Compassion is natural and is what I found through my own personal experience when I had 3 weeks of being "illuminated" when I was 27 and compassion poured out of me at full force without any effort or desire when I looked in anyone's eyes. And when we can understand as fully as possible what really happened to someone that has made them behave in an unethical manner, compassion and forgiveness will flow. This would be a step in the right direction and might provide a clearer understanding of how to cure trauma.
It seems that if we wish to save ourselves from extinction and totalitarianism, we must find a way to end violence and become humane beings. Behaving badly towards others without remorse could be associated with our animal nature, the world of predator and prey and to be able to merit continuing as a species, it is up to us to finally become humane and set up ethical societies with economies that incentivize compassionate, loving behavior.
Since, it seems that the majority of humans are lost at the moment, it is up to the 3 to 1 percent to save the day, to work towards the hundredth monkey phenomenon, to bring on the new paradigm which will be both ethical and humane. And there are big changemakers working on this as I speak. utopiacornucopia.org
