The Maestro says it's Mozart
but it sounds like bubble gum
I see so little light in this world lately. I see BS everywhere: commercials, media slants, people caught in group think, self-interested Narcissists
and arrogant cliques. I listen to beautiful music or look at beautiful weather and the beauty feels so faint. I see so much lies, manipulation, deceit
and self-deception, and very little that’s right and true
. I’m tired of excusing humanity for its lack of compassion, wisdom and common
I see a world run by mental illness, based on greed. I see most people living, more or less, for love (a spouse, kids, family,) yet the world is
by criminals who want only for themselves at the expense of everything else. They brainwash the public into seeing things their way and
it’s very hard to break the status quo in the minds of the public.
I also see a lot of chameleons
: people who adapt to their surroundings: when in a high-competitive environment they are dog-eat-dog
when in a mature and executive environment they are polite and mature
(to your face) and when society breaks down (even during a temporary
riot) seemingly ordinary people turn into savages
. Not that everyone is like this, as some are centered and strongly rooted in what the world
has made of them (for better or for worse.)
I see Public Indoctrination Centers for mind control which they simply call “education” and I see money-driven empires called “corporations”
buying and selling literally everything that they can for a buck. I see laborers who are working their lives away to make someone else richer,
sometimes killing themselves slowly in the process. I have a co-worker who needs the medical coverage the job offers and yet it is killing her (asthma
and shellfish processing are a bad combination.) She has nowhere else to turn. The local economy is devastated. She pointed out the other day how none
of us are earning anything from this job; we’re all just surviving. Heartwarming, huh?
How many people do you know who would laugh in your face if you ever used the term “right and true?”
Of course, self-righteous BSers who
act so proper one moment and then steal from their neighbor the next will talk this language, because they’re full of it. But really, what does
right and true
mean to this world? If asked, who could answer?
We hear words like “brilliant,” “genius” and “fantastic” all the time, but when is the last time you’ve heard words like “noble,”
“honorable” or “sacred”? It seems that sensationalism has replaced everything of substance. How many real life horror stories have you heard
people remark of as entertainment?
Real artists suffer in a world that does not understand them or appreciate what they have to share because people now have instant access to TV and
Internet and thus endless music and visual art for free. The ‘artists’ who do make it big are often hacks who were both lucky and good at
marketing themselves. Take Brittany Spears. A famous singer, yet she cannot sing or even write her own songs. Yet, she is celebrated in our culture as
a “successful artist,” while real artists commit suicide, live on the streets or sell a piece of their soul every day in some go-nowhere job to
pay the bills.
Whenever someone steps out to speak the truth, to point out that you do not have to go to Church or join the Freemasons to find enlightenment, they
are put to death. Whenever someone stands up against the big money-making powers, they are put to death. Whenever someone fights for peace instead of
division, they are out to death. This is a very sick world. The virus of greed may not run all families but it does seem to run all nations,
organizations and communities. Anyone who speaks against the sickness and offers the cure (being right and true
) is silenced. The illness is
self-defensive. Sometimes the infected are exposed (corrupt leaders are brought down or less-powerful wrong-doers are sent to prison,) but the virus
You may view this sickness in different respects: psychological, spiritual, intellectual or abstract. No matter which way you view it, deep down, you
know what I am talking about. It’s “Lord of the Flies” by Golding, it’s “Animal Farm” by Orwell, it’s “It” by Stephen King. It’s
greed, it’s fear, it’s hate. It’s all rooted in insecurity, which reinforces the belief in division: placing trust in mistrust. What path does
this mentality build for us? Where is it taking us? Anywhere we want to go?
I want to believe. I stand alone, waving my solitary flag: right and true
. The Yahoos laugh at me. Everyone else is too busy playing the
survival game to question the trap they are in or to consider if there might be a way out.
We built this. We can build something new. It’s always been our choice. We make it up as we go along. The visionaries always lead the show. The less
imaginative the majority are the more powerful the visionary few are. Maybe it’s time for a revolution of inspiration.
