"Okay, so there are those who would not impinge on 'hateful free speech' of others, but, again, one shouldn't be surprised when 'ignorant', unethical
people (the vast majority) who are easily moved to emotionally fueled action, deliver a swift 'turnaround' of the goods launched!"
Which is exactly why I fully believe that many, many people should take a step back and take a deep breath.
Amen to that!
I have sort of been saying the same thing as I endlessly post that 'beliefs' are pathologically symptomatic, with very nasty and painful symptoms.
We can watch the news and not believe it. Be entertained.
One who 'believes' it might have to sally forth and burn a mosque, or commit harm to an individual.
'Beliefs' are insanity!
Yes, breathing defuses the stress of emotion, long, slow, deep, mindful breaths!
Politics are very divisive in this day and age. Not that they haven't been in the past, but it seems like portions of both sides of the
political spectrum have taken a leave of absence away from rational thought/debate. Political theories and stances can't be summed up in the form of
a single hashtag, meme, or bumper sticker, yet so many base persuasion on these things.
Politics is about interpersonal relationships, and getting what you want.
Politics is about propaganda, inducing fear, dependency on government to 'save us'.
What is 'real' is YOUR LIFE!
What kind of a human are you?
Are you a blessing on the planet?
Are you the change that you want to see?
Can you Love?
Let the politics rant and rave and protest and destroy and manipulate all around you, but for Dog's sakes, don't buy into it, don't 'believe' any of
Don't let all that insane crap pull you from your 'center', from your point of 'balance', from your 'sanity'...
But, by all means, if you can, enjoy the show!!
We are living in some very special times in human history!
Pat attention! *__-
Our founders came at an age of enlightenment, when men realized that governance wasnt birthright or handed down from God. Ideology should be
consistent and well thought out over years of ponderance and practice.
Nah, 'ideology' is insanity!
We don't need more 'ideology', we need more unconditional Love/Enlightenment!
That is a Light that anyone will follow!
Not by edict and decree and force of arms and torture (prison...), history has shown us a multitude of times that doesn't work!
But we still attempt to use the same dysfunctional tools and come to a different conclusion.
That is nuts! *__-
Ultimately, we all need to be wary of protecting our freedoms,
We have no 'freedom'; that is just another 'belief' for which we commit all sorts of violent atrocities!
