Justice, like charity, begins at home. In the West we often think that injustices are perpetrated by bad governments elsewhere. We seldom see that it is the money generated by our own labour and by our own spending as consumers which create the conditions by which those tyrannies flourish. This same wealth that creates the conditions in which tyrannies arise, is also the wealth that empowers and sustains them.
The responsibility for the harm cannot be deferred on governments or corporations. Believing they can or will act differently, is wishful thinking. Chattering about governments and complaining about them, will do nothing to change the dynamic.
1. Emitting a radical opinion isn’t the same as claiming to state information. Always ponder, always share.
2. “International control world” How bravo.. appeal to the common desire: democracy - everyone seeks freedom. Someone sells the thought to the people, they act, and it’s real because they *do* want it. Rulers are “removed” and new ones put in place, all falling into a (dare I coin the phrase for its literal definition rather than cult value?) “New World Order”.. Whoever is in control, I’m interested to know.
Reality is, everyone’s a pawn - even those manipulated into thinking they’re part of the power source. Bottom line - no one is in control. Everyone is using everyone.
I saw you RT @ninatypewriter tonite.. mentioning how when Libya hit the news, Egypt fell from it. This is part of the cycle, the plot.. serve the salad, take the plate - finished or not, it’s time for the next course.
Final(ish) thought: Read “The Shock Doctrine” by @NaomiAKlein. It is a very important book for anyone who wishes to understand the world’s behavior, and hope in the tiniest way to affect change. Don’t forget “Third World America” by @AriannaHuff (ington) if you want the current motivations.
3. I noticed especially in discussions of Iran moving 2 warships through the Suez canal.. the report/news/plan changes every day, sometimes more often.
People have become so dependent on instant info we will take any report, just to feel like we know what’s happening. Really it’s a drive to feel a sense of control in a world that is seemingly succumbing to the chaos of demand for something that is actually intrinsic - freedom. Inside, down deeeeep we are all free. Bound by human restrictions and “rules” we forget that we have/are souls that are free as the wind. We forget our own power and become victims to ourselves. We all just want to feel heard.
Thanks for listening ;) (lol.. get it?)
PS.. I’m working on a little theory that may interest you about how the Earth (itself) is pissed and unbalanced and can’t physically take this type of stress.. stay tuned.. :)
No. Of course not. I will not come to that conclusion.
However, I must confess, My heart breaks a little when I see reports from people I like that are not true. Those premises that are called news now are fed through any media and gulped by the thousands.
We are passionate about the state of the world. But we are still walking the same line of “we know better” or “we know everything”.
Its a dangerous line that was blurred and got us to where we are.
I stand with all o those who voice their claims, opinions and want better, because their freedom ox expression is my own and their desire for a better life represents mine.
I will not emit any radical opinion on nothing that I can not prove because I will not play the same game I so spiritually oppose.
Dealings are not done in public, nor the international control world works like ours. To think that All it takes is human spark is admirable, but not realistic. I have no heard news from Egypt yet, and I think this is the time to stand close because this is the weakest moment for the people. Nobody is watching, they are not listening.
Statements are made about other countries without even stopping to check the sources. Other interests are turning the media wheel and steering this current to work for their opinion and how they can re-shape the world to their advantage. It has become too easy.
Its soul breaking because the road is paved with good intentions and with support of most humans for other humans. We are forgetting however that there is a reason we are where we are in the world and it is because we decided to let others use our opinion to fulfill their objectives.
Now we are asking others to shape their opinion through our voices, and our voices we think are free, but we are not taking the time to read, to research, to look, to elaborate, to prove, to discuss.
to the abyss of the cyclical world of events or shock doctrines, lighted up like fireworks but short lived and with so much passion that it leaves population tired and ready to get with the new program to which -again- they had no say.
I’m sad. But not defeated.
Rumours can’t hurt my soul, only truth can steer direction on my path.
What if we started to contract using the TOCs? If we encouraged others to do the same, not just in EU, US, Canada etc, but particularly in countries like Egypt where there is a radical sense of transition?
If we don’t say anything we wont offend anyone. If we all dress the same then we don’t cross any boundaries with any standard. If we look down all the time, no one will think we are looking at them.
Beautiful, highly effective. Then we will get rid of the ancient problem of being human and therefore having to actually interact with one another.
Who wants that?
it takes time, energy, it could convert a normal productive day into either an emotional roller coaster of sadness, a mad vulcano of anger or an idyllic limbo experience of happiness. That is not right. Then we our focus will be there instead of the productivity of the products and services we actually need. You know, instead of devoting our life to work for the betterment of the species, as long as they are de-humanized.
Who wants to see personal paraphernalia on a taxi when you go in. All I want is to be taken from point A to point B. I don’t want to be attacked or distracted by nothing that is not strictly needed for the purpose of the business transaction of transportation. If even for one second I feel the stress of an arising human connection my mood and my bodily functions will change and my employer will have to pay for it with the lack of performance due to this harassment.
It is re-comforting to know that all I have to do to be human is say out loud a couple of phrases already established as common agreement (good morning, lovely weather, how’s the family, have a great weekend, my deepest condolences). Oh how far we’ve come, how proud we should be with our automatization of existing. We have stripped the burden of emotions to a point where all we see is practical and if we ever want to experience otherwise we have come up with ingenious virtual, movie and web realities. We go in and we leave. No risk, no energy, no time lost, no productivity affected.
We are the new generation of the ultimate evolution.
Who needs robots?
Imagine. There is no other conclusion for me as I read the City by-law that fined a taxi driver for having personal paraphernalia on the dashboard of his taxi. Might I add he lost in court. He will appeal to a proper court with the right jurisdiction, hopefully, the Federal Constitutional Court. I have tried to contact him, I want to help in the case. I want to be there. Let’s see….
If not, well. I guess what I wrote before will be even stranger than fiction, in your daily life.
