Once more my friend thank you for taking the time to reply, presently people are angry, disturbed and frightened for good reason in this particular
case. We as Americans and humans I believe it is safe to say all ultimately aspire to higher standards than those we have witnessed.
Yes in the populace there are always going to be those once again with good cause who gravitate towards and find appeal in the lowest possible common
denominator. That though is to be expected and is mute to the extent that by alternative we as members of the populace look towards authority to
aspire towards the highest possible common denominator.
You yourself are trying as many of us do, but what has so angered the populace is that utter disappointment of seeing those who they expect and rely
upon to aspire to the highest possible common denominator those we place our trust in to protect and serve us in our property and person, instead
behave in a manner most typically reserved and seen in the lowest possible common denominator.
The shock of this affects us all who observe and contemplate these things to varying degrees and ends.
Emotions may flare for a time as people internalize these events and come to terms with how it really affects their sense of self, security, and over
all well being and the portents such events might then bear on their future in regards to all of these things.
I as always both publicly and privately urge people to respond and not to react. Responses are formed off of a careful and detached academic and
analytical review of the facts. Reactions are based on simple emotional reflexes like anger, fear, lust and other compulsive feelings that affect the
human nervous system.
I never advocate violence as a solution nor any form of confrontational behavior as all parties loose in confrontation.
A person convinced against their will is a person who remains unconvinced. A person cowered or intimidated through violence, threat of violence,
humiliation or threat of humiliation is only as cowered and subdued by these things as long as they are in play against them or to the point they gain
the strength or mental predisposition to rebel and lash out against them.
I think you can agree based on the wisdom and logic in the above statement the true mistake that the Law Enforcement Authorities made in their own
reactions which it is kind to describe them as reactions as they were more likely premeditated responses.
Yes it is true that the pen is mightier than the sword and people look for leaders and direction and those that can validate them and give life and
comfort to their hopes and fears.
I will not pretend this to be otherwise or the potential impact my words can have on others, all I can do is to illustrate through the record of my
own written words left here for posterity for all to see, that I advocate no harm and rational and logical responses to that which plagues the human
Am I cognizant of the inherent potential for both good and harm in my words you ask? Surely I am as I have sought to both reassure you and others that
calm will prevail and that logic will prevail and we will find a way to evolve peacefully and not revolve in counter productive and damaging ways.
Ultimately it will be up to the government to decide whether it can afford to still promote free speech in an atmosphere of increasingly dictatorial
and autocratic government and seek to curb or restrict or deny access to venues that promote free speech or to imprison, penalize in other ways or
execute those that speak out to evolution.
These are all things that are beyond my control. What is in my control is to find peace in my heart, resolve in my actions, self discipline in them,
and purpose behind them.
My purpose is clear, to do no harm, to not support those that would do harm, to evolve, not to revolve or devolve.
Should that represent an inherent danger to those who see no profit or gain or security in such a message then I humbly have but one life to lay down
for my message of love, and tolerance, and mutual understanding and fostering a truly more productive and supportive and kinder world for us all to
All dreams fade as do nightmares in time. I too shall pass at some point as shall we all.
For now though my friend, I am what I am.
