It's the end of politics.

What do I really MEAN by that? We'll explore it in this thread, but for the time being let me just say the following:

The time has come.

We're good to go now.

Time to get cracking at creating novel forms, launching new businesses, painting new pictures, making new friends and living boldly into a world of our own making.

HA!

We are what's relevant now. The MSM and the so-called "political establishment" have now lost their relevancy.

They lost.

We won.

This is the century of the human being and the individual, and it's his anonymous face that ought to be on the cover of Time Magazine.

The coup detat has failed.

This isn't just about an election, but everything that's possible, for ourselves and in our own lives as individuals living into the era of the individual and individual personal performance and contribution in the midst of true freedom and human liberty.

The 20th Century was the Century of the Self, but the 21st Century will be the Century of the Human Being, and his/her self actualization.

They lost the narrative.

We won it.

Now, let us have the courage and the audacity to get creative and come to power in every circle and sphere of influence.

It's an idea whose time has come.

You have got to be kidding. The MSM media has their agenda set in stone. It will be repackaged and thrown in your face in four years and you won't know what hit you. TPTB thought that they had the election in the bag, it was recently shown that their play book was exceptionally favorable to their position. They won't likely make that mistake again. Us "old white men" pulled off an upset this time, but it will be the last time because with did it by fluke not power. They have that.

Make no mistake, we are behind the times. We must understand that the world is not static but fluid and the waves of that fluidity have been growing for some time and must eventually expend their energy over us. It is inevitable. We are the vestiges of an old era, an old way of thinking. We cannot survive and I doubt that Trumpism will last out a year.

Turn them off now and away from them into the domain to which I'm pointing.

Turn it OFF!


It's a whole new world, and when someone steps forth and proclaims the obvious, I realize that it might appear absurd, but it's not.

It's all about what is relevant, formative and functional.

It's in what we reject and what we embrace.

Turn off your TV and unplug the cable TV. Everyone else is.

Join us on this road straight across a royal arch and into a new domain of possibility, a new pasture.

I'm speaking truth, and while there's a sense of mirth behind the things that I'm saying, no I'm not kidding. To be mirthful it HAS to be serious!

I've never been more serious.

Best regards,

Ankh

They lost.

We won.



Nobody lost the Elections.

Both sides won.

Clinton won the popular vote.

Trump won the Electoral vote.

It's like kindergarten. Where, there are no losers, every kid wins a prize just for participating.

Hillary is happy. She has sweet dreams. More people love her than love Donald.

Donald is happy. He also has sweet dreams. No matter what anybody says, love him or hate him, "he won."

Both candidates came away with a prize.

Clinton got a record number of votes, in the history of Presidential Elections.

Trump won the Presidency, despite of that fact.

It's a miracle. That both candidates won. Both can point to their prize trophy, and will have that memory for the remainder of their lives.

Amazing. There were no losers in this election.

However, like anything in life, all actions and events have both a "yin and yang" aspect.

So, it's possible to interpret these wins as really losses, if you're so inclined.

It's all opinion.

One guy gets to stay in the White House, and one gal gets liberated from the daily chore of being there, again.

I truly believe that our own history and our spirituality/connection with our father has been hidden from us (along with the assault of flouride, gmos, corn syrup, twitter, reality tv, the kardashians, people magazine, budweiser, zoloft) in order that we may never ever understand or realize our true potential.

Great thread. You're right. Time for each of us to realize our potential and then actualize it.

This is great news friend!

The dialectic that they are trying to use just doesn't function any longer, and fear and loathing doesn't sell either, not when it comes to the socio-political reality, which is generally faithful and optimistic, and less and less trusting of a MSM and old establishment narrative as one that just doesn't pass muster as they say in the military.

It's not functional, or formative, is not helpful, not loving, tolerant, inclusive, and affirmative of the latent power and potential of the lone individual.

We are not longer buying what they are selling. Jake Tapper and Anderson Cooper can just # right off now. Bu bye.

This doesn't mean that I would condemn anyone in particular, even my own worst enemy, but what I will condemn is his collectivist ideals, and his sensationalist, fight or flight response wedge issues, along with his sycophantic ass kissing of dark overlord's who's "magic" just ain't working like it used to.


What did Jesus say - and you will come to know the truth and the truth will set you free, and if you are freed for my sake then you shall be truly free indeed.

This is not a religious sentiment to be attacked, but something worth considering before succumbing to a knee-jerk, brainwashed, opinionated desire to punch me in the face for telling you that "thou art that" and that you in fact are at the heart and source of true and authentic power, the power to say to the mountain of bad historical causation, MOVE, and watch it move, or to the corrupt and fruitless tree in the midst - UPROOT yourself and be cast into the abyss! and see that it is done as you ask, and all with faith and hope but the size of a tiny mustard seed.

Small starts. BIG outcomes.

It's time to climb down off the wall now (I've been stuck up on it for 15 years now, or more) and to stop worrying about holding open the door or the gateway access point, and go on in, and join with whoever was smart enough to recognize the invitation and the moment when they saw it and it was presented and made available. Do not follow the blind who lead the bind and who neither enter in or allow anyone else to do so. That's absurd.

It's time to get to work building something novel, something creative, something ingenious and in the process change the world, in whatever way however big or small however fast or slowly it matters not, only the direction that we are moving and what it is that we are generating, even if only for ourselves and our loved ones and by extension the larger society and civilization.

The time has come.

BTW, this is me preaching as much to myself as to anyone.. ; )

Let there be no stopping our march, it matter how one iota how good or bad Trump is as President, that too has become irrelevant.

Either way, we're staring at an unprecedented opportunity to bring about a revolution and a transformation, by simply being honest and authentic and to thine own self, true.

Was the world getting you down?

Start a new one in the clearing because this is a big time major clearing that we're looking at right now this very moment if we would but have the courage to reach for it and seize it.

You totally get it!

Thank you.

It's the kind of thing that's capable of putting the smile back on your face and joy in your heart of the kind that no one and nothing can take away, nor grant to you. It's intrinsic. And Its the new power, and new kid in town so to speak. And we're it. That's awesome!

We therefore must make use of our gifts and talents more fully and start taking on responsibility for the world that we are creating ie: instead of trying to operate like arm chair quarterbacks or adjudicators.

When the invite goes out, we must remember that it's rejected first by the wealthy, then by the attached, and that God, with a certain level of upset and frustration then re-extends the invite again, throughout the streets and the hedgerows.. to gather in all who possess the desire to participate in the creation and generation of something worthy of us as human beings. [P.S. It's an ALLEGORY, don't lose your # over it)

Their old dialectic just isn't worthy of us, and that's why their trustworthiness and popularity is at around 9% and fast plummeting, like in the last few weeks.

It's happened.

Let's wake up to the new reality and instead of getting a hate on for those we disagree with, set to work with our hand on the plow and without ever looking back, because he who looks back or hesitates isn't worthy to plow the field.

New understandings, and new ways of looking at things, new inventions, new everything - it belongs to us, not to some sort of "establishment" of so-called "elites" and their propaganda arm.

The future is ours.

They will never get it, and what's sad, is that instead of making them happy, even happy for us, they would rather lose their own sense of humor, mirth and charm, than join in the fun of what's possible, and in the process lose it forever, as if left in a state of inconsolability, and that's really sad, but what can ya do?!

It's time to move on and leave the dead to bury their dead. They will see the light again, and again, and will have ever opportunity to resurrect into the new, but woe to those who absolutely flat out refuse to get that the joke was on themselves and their own prior ignorance.

Those who say "we see" let me tell you what to think and dwell upon, are blind, and they are the blind leading the blind into a pit of their own making.

But enough with that - points in another direction (oh # I looked back for a moment there didn't I?). Onward ho.

Great minds think alike.

Very interesting synchronicity there.


But, you will note, in the accompanying video with the OP, there is also a solution and a whole series of them posed.

This isn't shaking a fist at "the man" and shouting and ranting and raving. We must come to power, whatever that means for each person. And isn't that the very torch of liberty we carry along with us?

Who has it in their grasp?

The "keepers of the flame"?

This has nothing to do really with Trumpism.

Some people can see what I'm talking about, and for others, it's just another dialectic.

Don't cast yourself down or fall victim, or lead others on that path, it's not helpful.

You seem to have missed the substance of what I'm referring to or trying to, because it's hardly something that can be ad3quately described in mere words.

Please try to take another look at the MSM and the old establishment, and then come back here and tell me that they haven't lost it and betrayed themselves and their positions in the process in regards to what they serve and protect.

No one's buying it any more.

They've lost the narrative.

I cannot be the only person to see this clearly..

I applaud your enthusiasm but we are not entering a new age of enlightenment.

No one is turning off their TV. I work in the biz and we can't keep up with the demand for programming.
News is just another form of entertainment for the great unwashed. Just another platform to sell crap from hygiene products to
fools gold. This is the information age even if the "information" is BS. No one cares as long as they can get some relief from their
pointless banal lives for just a few hours until they return to their drab existence in the workplace.

The blind are in their pit of fantasy and they love it because it is the only safe place they know. You give people way to much credit!!!

Just look around you...are people engaged in conversation and discourse? No they are staring at a screen in the palm of their hand. They
are addicted to that connection. The establishment knows this and they know how to manipulate and profit.

Consumerism, Capitalism, are our Gods. We worship at the cyber alter! Don't we even now have our attention on a monitor tuned to ATS or some other internet highway of escapism.

I'm trying to use it as a platform and communications medium.

You're very cynical, and you see it from the inside. You call the consumers blind, unwashed masses. That's interesting don't you think, the way you see the consumers you're serving?

I'm not trying to demonize you, just say'n.

Cynical doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about our audience. We have the technology to create ART that would rival the renaissance but the market place demands we cater to the advertising moguls lowest common denominator. They know the demographic of the audience and give them what they crave, pointless garbage they don't have to think about.

I mostly work in TV but when I get the opportunity to work in film it's heaven. Bad movies are more creative than most TV. It's about the time honored skills involved in story telling.


Honestly I hope you are right but I just don't see it.

I think you underestimate what people are capable of, if given the opportunity.

That attitude and impression that you hold, do you find that that's sort of imbedded throughout the whole TV production culture that you work within, as something that's all pervasive?

Amazing. There were no losers in this election.

If you think Hillary "sleeps happy" while knowing more people love her than Trump you are sadly deluded or purposely deluding yourself.

1. No voter ID law is retarded.
2. Despite #1, Hillary still only got the edge of the popular vote due to California alone.
3. Hillary could care less what people think of her. She wants power, and power she didn't get.
4. No losers in this election? Losing what seems to be the easiest most rigged election in recent times where the media is basically her own speaker to spew whatever she likes, investing 1.2 BILLION $ on it, losing states like Florida, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, losing the recount, losing the fight to persuade the electors to ditch Trump, etc.

You either pity her to the extreme or just have your head buried way deep in the sand.

To think Hillary, and every single one of her campaign, did not came out a complete and utter losers after this circus is simply laughable.

Clinton was nowhere near the record number of votes. She got 65.7 million votes, Obama in 2008 received 69.4 million votes.
