I am less than startled, more cringing, to encounter the regurgitations of the main stream mantra of those I love and respect. Trump is anti muslim, yet avoids banning visas for many of the largest muslim countries on the planet. Trump is a racist, yet sees no colour in money. Trump is the end of the world! blah blah fucking blah…
Where was this widespread moral outrage when Obama was presiding over the destruction of Libya? Gaddafi totally transformed his country into a vibrant, multi cultural society where education and health care were free…can you even imagine this?? Where power was hugely subsidised, where pubic funds were hugely geared towards helping newly weds get their first home? Where decision making was de centralised to local councils? The richest African nation, with the finest year on year improvement in literacy rates and life expectancy…? A country which threatened the dollar IMF debt war routine by suggesting the dinar as the african currency???
Where was the ranting and roaring on social media and protests on the streets when Obama gave the green light to supporting the rise of the neo nazis in Ukraine?
Where were these left wing wannabe goons when Obama supported the removal of Assad, a democratically elected leader of a sovereign state then armed savages to do his bidding in Syria, which burned folk alive, drowned them, beheaded and cut out then ate their hearts?
Where was the mass horror at the US supported and armed invasion of Yemen? Add in Somalia and Pakistan and it makes 7 majority muslim countries Obama has bombed in recent times.
Where were the do-gooder brigade when Obama approved a global assassination program by drone strike which has slaughtered thousands all over the world with no judge or jury but himself?
Where were the cries of passionate fury when Obama expanded the supply of weapons to the very worst regimes on the planet? WHilst also increasing nuclear proliferation and moving us closer to WWIII than since the cold war?
They must have been…otherwise engaged. For I am personally far more horrified by the destruction of countries, than a temporary ban on people eager to head to the US, from countries they are bombing. WHich is not a major step away from what Obama employed. Yes yes! The visa waiver exclusions were different, but a precursor.
When oh fucking when are people going to understand that the mass media is a propaganda machine. Which lies and lies and lies, yet the majority remain stepping in tune, told how to feel, what to think and what to say…
I am no Trumpety Trump apologist. He seems a cunt. Yet so does Merkel. So did Obama. So does May. So does Hollande. There may be a skirmish within the powers that are very much directing most mega trauma on the planet whilst plundering its finite resources and keeping us amused and misdirected, yet this change is not good v evil, it is more a case of internecine warfare…with Donald most likely an unwitting puppet of vying powers.
It sickens me to accept that more people believe in Facebook than their own capacity to challenge, to think, to feel, to analyse…and only thereafter, to conclude and assume. It is convenient to be told what you should be feeling and thinking, but it is a worrying case of mass hysteria when the disseminators of ‘truth’ are proven liars…They are spoon feeding the masses manufactured ‘truth’.
Who organises these mass protest rallies?
Why did the same power structures which now bombard us with anti trump mania not act the same with Obama?
Yet, any criticism of Obama is met with blind eyes, blind hearts, senseless lemmings repeating the MSM mantra…I am finding little difference in the MSM headlines and the words emerging from the mouths of people who I was mistaken in assuming knew better, as in, they had true grit, true zeal and dealt with life on what they saw and felt.
The many I meet have no idea of my own idea of the most special artists who have moved and inspired me in wondrous ways. Maybe they know a name or three…Dostoyevksy no doubt. Perhaps at a stretch Saul Williams…but do they know Kunt Hamsun? Bulgakov? Balzac? No…they know the mongs of My Kitchen Rules or The Bitchorette instead…yet perhaps that equips them more valuably. For the world where I dwell. And rather than mock and find eagerness to maim I should either make an effort to re-align or remove myself. Seek the trees and those near them.
There are several reasons why I prefer the company of my hound to the same of the vast majority of people I know here in Melbourne. He lives off instinct. Never lies. Is prone to fang when any hint of bother appears, or in the least show his fang line. His affection is earned and always on his terms. He is also more interesting than most homosapiens I encounter, in his look and behaviour. Admittedly, I cannot discuss my inspiration of Fyodor with Oscar, but I can feel in my femurs as much as know in my mind and sense in my senses, that he is real to my real…I cannot say the same of many humans. And all I have come to alter, not improve, but adjust for an easier life, of my essence, is that I can continue a conversation with a human whose goodness is not in question, neither is their decency, when I am thinking ‘YOU ARE MONG TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU ARE TOLD BY PROVEN LIARS’…It may come across as nodding of the head listening, and I am listening,,,but I am hearing different words to what you are saying…
We can do little to challenge the overseers. Other than making an effort to shield ourselves from the bullshit and play fair and honest, to each other…and ourselves. Which is one and the same thing. Our best chance of salvation, of changing the world, is to be honest. Try it. Try being honest with your feelings for an hour, then a day, then a week, then a life…Expect those unable to be honest to oppose and make moves to destroy you, especially when you are honest towards them. Expect many to revert to prescribed reactions to your lack of obedience to the system, to mock, to attack, to distance…and know this as progress. There is little personal development to be found in joining a lynch mob…
DO not worry how you look. Concern yourself solely with how you be…for Real People appreciate Real People, not flesh shaped mannequins of an idea of others. Which extends to the centre of whatever we think, and far beyond, deeper.
Nothing changes. Vautrin had a better way to deal with this dishonest world. Yet he was a worthy idea 200 years ago. And the same would likely apply to me then as it does now; namely, that I retain a naive assumption that there is some good in everyone…Play the system, which the people have become, so play them, MAKE MONEY…yes! yes!…but I am more interested and astrologically designed to follow a narrow path hopeful of finding honest souls. Without them, life as a human with a half working mind, is harrowing. With them, it is a perfect balance of Bliss and Agony…SO seek the Honest. Seek True Friends…
