Iceland recently had something of a revolution where they cleaned the crooks out of the government, jailed the bankers, and re-invested themselves in free speech. Unless you follow alternative news you probably didn't hear a word of this because in the land of the free and home of the brave this and many other news stories quite simply never see the light of day. Our keepers don't want us getting any funny ideas about freedom and democracy, which is why YouTube recently terminated the Snordelhans channel...he was just putting out too much truth, and became too popular, so he had to go. Once again, if we don't raise bloody hell over stuff like this then when it's our turn to go away there will be nobody left who dares speak a challenging word.
It has recently come to light that the laws & regulations covering the purchase and proliferation of guns in this country have been gutted and the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms relegated to window dressing status. Normally I do not watch the local or national evening news, but for the last week I have, as an experiment. What I saw was illuminating as the subject of gun control made it onto every single newscast, and with increasing fervor I might add. The local channels made a point of telling everyone how there is a run on guns as local gun stores post record sales. The objective is obvious, the powers that be WANT everyone to run out in fear and buy a gun or two; now why would that be?
For clarity we must look to the other story getting lots of traction in recent news loops, immigration. Quite suddenly the Republicants in DC are all in favor of immigration, especially across our Southern border. In a move quite uncustomary for them they are now embracing the idea, even trotting out Bush's "Path to citizenship" ploy to make immigration easier than ever before. Hmmm, a dual infusion of guns and immigrants into our society, both shrouded in the language of fear. What could possibly go wrong? Are we being set up for something ugly enough for martial law to be declared? Something to ponder.
I see the entertainment division of the new world order now turning to making first run feature movies of our favorite children's fairy tales to lull us into a still deeper false sense of security while we sleepwalk our way thru the grand design. Having gone thru the complete list of comic book super heroes making it to the big screen, now we're getting the bedtime stories. Is this really the best Hollywood is capable of producing? You ever get the feeling we're being regarded and treated as children? Something ain't right here, or maybe I'm just getting too old, or both.
Already we are seeing the inevitable mutations in some sea life, and plant life as well. Does anybody out there truly believe humans are exempt from this fate? If so you need some serious help, and yet, that is how we conduct our lives, as though it's all over and a thing of the past. Well, it's a far cry from being over, and it is a thing of the future. The famous
Drake equation used to calculate the probable number of planets with intelligent species, can also be used to surmise our probable collective future on this planet. The late Carl Sagan spoke about it in terms of whether a sentient species could survive long enough to be discovered by other races on other planets. Certainly we are sentient, but it has yet to be determined whether we are intelligent. If anything in conjunction with our arrogant stupidity can wipe mankind from the face of the Earth, certainly Fukushima must top the list...yeah, there's a list!
They don't want us thinking those loving, peaceful thoughts, and exploring these exciting new energies swirling over the planet; they want us cowering in fear, just like always. You see, we are not the descendants of fearless neolithic cave dwellers who ventured forth to tame a hostile prehistoric world...they all died or were eaten. No, we are the descendants of the terrified ones huddled in fear at the back of the cave. That mindset is what we have to confront, and overcome if we ever hope to live long enough to come out on the plus side of the Drake equation. The truth is simple, and ugly. We either decide as a species to topple the psychopaths from power in every country where they rule, or we will be their slaves forever. Simple as that. Hell, Iceland did it, how hard can it possibly be?
Two things are certain: this new world we see emerging cannot be erected upon the crumbling foundations of that which is now dying away, and the problems we face cannot be solved by the same thinking that created them. We must allow the corrupt empire to fall, then bulldoze the debris away and begin again, a fresh start & a new beginning. If we cannot muster the will to do these things then we had best get used to a 3rd dimensional world of fear & loathing for our children, and theirs. With our unenlightened self interest we've allowed a cabal of the very worst souls on Earth to take control of things and steadily transform a beautiful gem of a world into a toxic sewer. Are YOU content to leave such behind as a legacy to unborn generations? Are you content knowing that if nothing is done pretty damn soon, our progeny will exist as property of the corporations, without the freedom to follow their own heart, their own path?? Are you afraid to leave the cave? If a radioactive toxic mud ball is the very best we can leave behind for future generations, then I wonder how many more generations there will be. I wonder if this Aquarian ascension will survive all that is being done to stop it's progress, and ours. I wonder if we are headed for the hundredth monkey...or the trunk monkey.
In the silence at the heart of things I know we each dream of a much different world, a better world; and yet unless we act upon those dreams to manifest them into reality, they will remain as just dreams, nothing more. If WE don't fix things, nobody else is going to show up to do it for us, this one is solidly on us, and ya know what, things got broken on our watch and it's our responsibility to give our children something better than a smelly box full of parts & pieces. If we cannot do better than that then perhaps it explains why Earth is the only planet not named for a God!
Lets all try to live up to our potential!
