We Need A Plan With A Beginning
I offer this as partial food for thought with the hope that it will motivate us towards solutions instead of the seemingly endless creation of yet more problems for us all.
What To Do First
There are all manner of ideas out there about what kind of future we can make for ourselves and hopefully for the world. Every Utopian dream is conceived as if it were always there and little is said about how we arrive at its beginning. The process is not like building a new part for a machine and installing it in place of the old. The process that gets us there has to work from where we are at. There has to be some repair work to the foundation in which it will operate and so the key is to arrive at a list of priorities that will move us in the direction where the new culture, economy and politic will function as planned. While making a change for the future, we must not let go of the reality that all things outlive their usefulness and so nothing we do will be forever and will eventually need to be replaced and or upgraded. That way we will remain prepared for further change and improvement without feeling the need to fight wars trying to maintain the status quo.
In order to move on to the better future there does have to be a new world order, but not one that has an overly stratified populous, but one where everyone is important regardless of the fact that some people will be born with physical, economic or mental advantages as a luck of the draw and will be in an environment where they have the opportunity to make the most of themselves in the community without it resulting in a degrading of those not so lucky.
The new world order mandate has to first deal with the terrible suffering many experience due to the current cultural, political and economic environment. We have to get well and accept that any future society that will really be an upgrade puts a premium on the individual and so must be harmonious. After all, if we do not mitigate suffering, we will have accomplished nothing.
Where Is The Blockage?
In order to serve the individual as part of the whole, there has to be as little regulation on them as possible. Instead, it is government and big business and other governmental style groups such as labor unions that need to be regulated as they are not individual sentient entities but merely mechanisms constructed to serve, not rule.
We have been handed a terrible blow to personal sovereignty by the US Supreme Court that has ruled corporate and union structures, and the like are the same as a person. Those that rag on about how we are slipping into Communism fail to see that this turn of events is very Communistic. It is giving credence and power to herd mentality in the form of a proletariat style hierarchy. The Multinational Corporations and foreign governments that are funding our demise as a democratic society are aided by fools that buy into the Right Wing of American politics. Mind you, I’m not using the title Conservatives when I speak of the Right. There is nothing conservative about it, as there is little Liberal about the Left.
It is clear that the court is making law, which is outside its purview.
While the so-called Left leaves much to be desired, it is currently the Right wing of politics that supports this travesty of justice put on us by the very body entrusted with seeing to it we have real justice and not make unrepresented law that takes our freedom. For that reason alone, it is important to continue with the Left in power until the court can again serve its proper function.
This is not to say we need only a Liberal mandate going forward. Conservatism serves us well but there must be a balance of sorts so that harmony is maintained.
Suffering And Happiness Are Contagious
If we are to be infected by suffering or happiness it is a certainty we will chose happiness. The problem we face is that there is so little happiness and so much suffering that most of humanity, regardless of their position in life, cannot find happiness. Instead we have surrogate or faux happiness, which is generally displayed by such things as the irrational acquisition of wealth, power, or celebrity.
Much of science does not believe that humans are constantly broadcasting their feelings. Some, who are sensitive to the wave length on which these feelings are carried know what they do to a society as they are received and resent, or bounced around, building a silent cacophony of depression that is like a disease keeping us in a condition I call fright pain. Even individuals that claim they are above it all and are just fine are affected.
The only effective medicine for this ailment is to spread joy. That requires getting inside ourselves to see that we shy away from it as it must expose us to the reality that we are all infected and affected by this nearly universal condition, fright pain.
There is no blanket cure. The only way to mitigate the effect is on a personal basis. That is, to understand what is happening and work towards modifying our outgoing broadcast and absorbing the incoming so it stops with you.
Over time, if enough people engage in the cure, happiness will prevail and is something we can freely pass around to the benefit of all.
The key to adopting the correct attitude that will save us is to understand that, looking at me from the other side of your eyes, I am.
What Outcomes Can We Expect?
If humanity cannot bring itself to modify and mutate to a higher order of understanding and it continues to follow the path it is lost on, then we can certainly expect to become extinct. As we accelerate towards a world-wide Orwellian future, it can only bring about a revolution wherein all sides will fight to the death and as the ultimate weapons are released and we kill our life support systems, there is only the finality of death for us all. I suppose therein is a final solution.
On the other hand, if we quit jacking ourselves off fueled by manufactured principles and moral codes, and get to being a family, the earth is here for us as a species that can thrive as long as the planet.
What Is The Formulation That Saves Us?
First, as Americans, then eventually as Earthlings, we need an honest appraisal of our individual and collective reasoning as to our reaction, inaction or action within the actual status quo and move away from the dishonest platitudes designed to brainwash ourselves into believing we are something we are not. For the most part, what we are at this juncture are beasts of prey.
Attempts to move away from this frank designation is to further kid ourselves into thinking we are moving towards the light when the opposite is true. The false labels we attach to ourselves are put to us at an early age with processes such as baptisms, pledges to the flag and similar activities and designations. Ironically nothing could be more Communistic.
The coming together begins with putting ourselves apart from these false constructs and seeing ourselves first as individual locations within the whole. That done, at least to some degree, allows us to merge with the collective in a way that does not enslave us within the group but rather allows us to act in concert, which then fortifies our individual freedom within the collective.
The process for our salvation could take centuries. Those that cannot think beyond their own lifetimes are useless to the cause.
Beware The False Priests
Best to all
