This is a great (and necessary) post. Partisan politics can be found in forums, blogs and websites throughout the world wide web. I have not made a
lot of posts on this site but I lurk (i.e. READ) because I like to believe that there are people other than myself that are open to real critical
thinking. I want to LEARN. Anybody can [female dog] and moan. As I get older, I grow weary of this approach because I believe that there is a better
way. I want to study as much about religion, history and philosophy as I can to get insight on how I may be part of a solution instead of part of a
I could go on and on about who I am and what I believe, but to keep it short and sweet, these are my personal realizations (and I respect yours if
they are different as long we insist on not imposing upon each other's will:
- I am Christian and believe there is a God (though I was once EXTREMELY doubtful)
- After wrestling with both liberal and conservative political ideology I am convinced that these are the teams created by an oligarchy designed
specifically to keep us divided and dependent.
- I strive every day to pray for peace and the strength to treat all with compassion and understanding, especially those who would be my enemies.
We are getting so close to a world that can exist without a government and this idea alone is what scares the crap out of the world political machine.
Heaven forbid they may have to go out and get real jobs.
S and F... SOMEBODY HAS GOT TO SAY IT AND YOU DID! KUDOS!
and I like your outline.
In my 1861 unabridged webster's dictionary, definition #2 for APOCALYPSE is "when all is revealed" -
Why would the end of secrecy be considered an apocalypse?
"Secrets are the mortar binding bricks as lies together into prisons for the mind"
And yes partisan... Us vs them, dem vs gop, type thinking is being actively encouraged. Mental manipulation works - for those who would like to
innoculate themselves from being manipulated, I would suggest that you read a psychiatrist named Joost Meerloo
to "DELUSION AND MASS DELUSION"
If we were to heal the divisions amongst us, we must pursue all discussion with intent to determine what the truth is. and we might even heal some of
the shills sent to disrupt !
All discussion provides mutual benefit when pursued to determined what is the truth,
NOT who is "right".
Rightness or wrongness means nothing in a cell at Gitmo.
TPTB want racial hatred, they want religious hatred, they want nations despising other nations as it raises arms sales, and they want ignorance. They
seek apathy. Those ignorants who are not easily manipulated by shrill lies.. are often turned into supporters by choreographed disaster
theatricals... it has been this way since the beginning of time.
There is enough on this planet to provide for everyone's needs but there will never be enough to satisfy greed.
If you want justice, seek the truth.
If you want the truth
follow the money.
