My thoughts recently have been dark & troubled. I have erred on the side of extreme caution & suspicion of the powers that be, expecting that at any
moment 'they' will seek to stomp down on the ever-poorer masses with the jackboot of oppression, flinging us all into work camps to while away our
days of toil with no reward, until the blessed relief of death finally takes us away from this evil place..
But what if I'm wrong? What if, despite the evidence before us - that the rich ARE getting richer, at a staggering pace, while the poor (and even
the middle classes) are becoming impoverished ever further at equally astounding rates - what if, there is an equalising force, hidden from view, but
ever ready to tip the scales of justice back in the favour of the common decency which conscience dictates as true to the heart of each man & woman
Perhaps it is an organising principle of sentient life in the universe - a ratio of good to evil, perhaps? A divine constant which assures us that
even in the bleakest time, some fortuitous events will conspire to bring together people of immense mutual inspiration, magnetised as a cohesive
visionary force which cannot be defeated by the cold, dark, separatist, blackened hearts of the elite. I am reminded of the familiar 'War in
Heaven' of Christian lore, in which a third of all angels rebelled against the bright Heaven from which all had come - but two thirds, did not rebel.
No, they remained faithful, and despite great evils upon the earth, hope has never, ever been completely extinguished. Perhaps that is the ration of
good to evil which is somehow patterned into the cosmos - after all, it can be said that in a reasonably free & tolerant society, more people work for
the common good, within the rules, within common decency & the mutual friendships which arise in such circumstances, far more than those who actively
work against the common good, outside the rules, beyond the limits of common decency & without care for the friendship of good & reasonable people.
It is true that persons with psychopathic tendencies, or sympathies towards those with psychopathic tendencies, are more likely to amass resources in
any society. Whether they do it openly, brazenly, by the force of their arm & at the price of innocent blood; or whether it is hidden, insidious,
devious - white collar, political corruption - the results are similar. However, the time of the jackals, in the context of the ultimate eternity of
which we are a part, is short. Much like the devil of Revelation, they know it too. Enlightenment has a way of constantly taking us forward, in
general. We are a part of a moving, changing, ceaselessly dancing cosmos, which cannot know stagnation & decay for any longer than the blossoming
seeds of new life in the remnants of what has passed. How many months & years that may be at the close of an era, none can say. But if we look at
our overall progress over the past thousand years, it is fair to say that in the main, we have moved towards the light, and not away from it. We may
well be in a darkening period, a technologically-driven regression away from personal integrity, devotion to knowledge & discipline - but the times
are always changing.
So what if we are wrong? What if the craven chattering of the NWO conspirators is nothing but screech owls in the night, reeling at the prospect of
the new dawn, when their haunts will be illuminated, and their dark plots exposed, shunned, confronted & defeated by the collaborative agency of a
connected, enlightened, aware humanity, which can see its place in the ever-wheeling cycles of change, and can return us back onto the arc of an
upward trajectory, making the best use of our super-connective technologies to do so..?
Innovation holds the key, along with awareness, and a sense of community cohesiveness, a willingness to stop playing into their hands by seeking only
that which is best for us as individuals, and rather to start thinking seriously about what sort of world we want to prepare for our children, and
their children? And the bland, dreary arguments about saving the environment aren't going to cut it any more when it comes to providing the
inspiration for this fight. They've become part of the problem! Claim & counter-claim surround poor little climate change, wrapping it up in
conspiracy so tightly that its eyes are popping out.
In this era, information, and the spread of certain types of information, hold the keys to change. Fake news, whether the meme developed organically,
or as an insidious COINTELPRO maneuver, is here to stay, and so ETHICS, MORALITY, INTEGRITY & REPUTATION are the keywords which define the
battleground on which the struggle for our future will be fought. This isn't to say that it should ever involve a return to religiously-inspired
inquisition-style moralising, but rather, it indicates a brightened path of the debate of various modes of philosophy which will unlock the power &
potential of every person in & of themselves, in community with their fellows, and by connectivity via technology, in communion with the world at
large, developing innovative strategies & technologies which will, bit by bit, offer improvements over the system which currently exists. Revolution
is neither desirable nor necessary - the answer is a new way of looking at society, and what we wish of it, expect of it, and bring to it.
Utopia is a dangerous ideal; we should aim for PROTOPIA (article on
And so, even if we're right, and there is a dark & powerful cabal which is seeking to concentrate absolute power in its hands, to our downfall - I
have a suspicion that a universal constant, a principle of balance (but not the 'good needs evil to be good' new age nonsense) is extant in nature,
across the universe, in that life is cooperative more than it is competitive, and particularly this is the case where sentience is found. Throw into
the mix that we might have ten million angels walking among us, and I think we'll perhaps see a brighter future sooner than we expect. If the
darkness pushes, the bright will push back with the force of Life, and extinguish the petty divisiveness & selfish hoarding which threatens the true
established order. That's my current take on it anyway!
