Turning Point

Conditioning for the Fight

A lot of hype and propaganda conditioning the population for all out war!  But something has happened to where the same old song and dance of creating an enemy you don’t necessarily know and always drawn us into battle.  The orchestrated string of battle is a mechanism of hate, a tool used by the Neocons associated with Central Banks for monstrous loans for a war that will cancel debt in order to balance the books.  Land grab for resources, strategic location, depopulation of ethnic groups (genocide) so the great economic matrix is in the hands of a few, the money changers.  Well, my friends, this dynasty is on the way out, on Thursday Macedonia’s Parliament was stormed after an ethnic Albanian MP was elected speaker.  The move sparked outrage from nationalists.  Hundreds of angry protesters surrounded and spilled into the Parliament building demanding new elections.

On Friday Brazilian police tear-gassed demonstrators and rioters burned buses in the violent conclusion of a general strike the first in 21 years that shut down transport, schools and banks in protest against the government’s austerity reforms.

Brazil Take-Down

Here’s some confession news of ISIS apologizing? for attacking IDF soldiers in the occupied Golan Heights.  Israeli Former Defense Minister Moshe ‘Bogie’ Ya’alon cited the claim in The Times of Israel.  The disclosure may also provide some insight into why after reportedly attacking virtually every religion and ethnicity in the region, there have been virtually no documented attacks by the Islamic State on Israel or its citizens.  You can also add Saudi Arabia to that list including Qatar, the old saying, you don’t bite the hand that feeds.  Some now are referring to ISIS as ‘Israel Secret Intelligent Service’. You can’t make this stuff up, it’s Heads of State fucking up!

As humans we have two choices, to continue the error of our ways without accepting our own fault or mend our differences.  Seems this theory has been in play since man has shown up on the planet. We also see signs of the first choice happening today, many confess or a victim undergoes a change in feelings, attitude regarding an offense and lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, with an increased ability to wish the offender well.  Now that’s a nice thought on behalf of the victim but does the offender change his or her ways?

Let’s look at a segment of a story about Sacred Activism by Author Andrew Harvey:

An elderly African woman was brought by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, face to face with the man, Mr. Van de Broek, who had confessed to the savage torture and murder of both the woman’s son and her husband a few years earlier.  The old woman had been made to witness her husband’s death.  The last words of her husband had been “Father forgive them.”

One of the members of the Commission turned to her and asked:  “How do you believe justice should be done to this man who has inflicted such suffering on you and so brutally destroyed your family?”

The old woman replied “I want three things.  I want first to be taken to the place where my husband’s body was burned so that I can gather up the dust and give his remains a decent burial.” She stopped, collected herself, and then went on. “My husband and son were my only family.  I want, secondly, therefore, for Mr. Van de Broek to become my son.  I would like for him to come twice a month to the ghetto and spend a day with me so that I can pour out to him whatever love I have still remaining with me.  And finally, I want a third thing.  I would like Mr. Van de Broek to know that I offer him my forgiveness because Jesus Christ died to forgive.  This was also the wish of my husband.  And so, I would kindly ask someone to come to my side and lead me across the courtroom so that I can take Mr. Van de Broek in my arms, embrace him, and let him know that he is truly forgiven.”

The assistants came to help the old woman across the room.  Mr. Van de Broek, overwhelmed by what he had just heard, fainted.  And as he did, those in the courtroom friends, family, neighbors all victims of decades of oppression and injustice began to sing  Amazing Grace.  Mr. Van de Broek could hear them sing, “how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me”.  (end story)

 

 

Many religions practice forgiveness:

Judaism:  If a person causes harm, but then sincerely and honestly apologizes to the wronged individual and tries to rectify the wrong, the wronged individual is encouraged, but not required, to grant forgiveness.

Christianity:  Forgiveness is central to Christian ethics and is a frequent topic in sermons and theological works. It is usually considered a duty of Christians to forgive even when forgiveness is not deserved.

Islam:  Recommends forgiveness between Muslims, because Allah values forgiveness.  There are numerous verses in Quran and the Hadiths recommending forgiveness. However, Islam also allows revenge to the extent harm done, but forgiveness between Muslims is encouraged, with a promise of reward from Allah.

Baha i Faith: “Love the creatures for the sake of God and not for themselves.  You will never become angry or impatient if you love them for the sake of God. Humanity is not perfect. There are imperfections in every human being, and you will always become unhappy if you look at the people themselves.  But if you look toward God, you will love them and be kind to them, for the world of God is the world of perfection and complete mercy.  Therefore, do not look at the shortcomings of anybody; see with the sight of forgiveness.”

Buddhism:  Forgiveness is seen as a practice to prevent harmful thoughts from causing havoc on one’s mental well-being. Buddhism recognizes that feelings of hatred and ill-will leave a lasting effect on our mind karma. Instead, Buddhism encourages the cultivation of thoughts that leave a wholesome effect. “In contemplating the law of karma, we realize that it is not a matter of seeking revenge but of practicing mettā and forgiveness, for the victimizer is, truly, the most unfortunate of all.

Hinduism:  Forgiveness is discussed in verses dedicated to deity Varuna (the Hindu god of water), both the context of the one who has done wrong and one who is wronged.  Forgiveness is considered one of the six cardinal virtues in Hinduism.

Jainism:  Forgiveness is one of the main virtues that needs to be cultivated by the Jains.  Jains repeatedly seek forgiveness from various creatures, even from single sensed beings like plants and microorganisms that they may have harmed while eating and doing routine activities.

Hoʻoponopono:  Is an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness, combined with prayer.  Similar forgiveness practices were performed on islands throughout the South Pacific, including Samoa, Tahiti and New Zealand. Traditionally Hoʻoponopono is practiced by healing priests or kahuna (wise man or shaman) among family members of a person who is physically ill. Modern versions are performed within the family by a family elder, or by the individual alone.

So how do we want it?

Damage Control

So we have many road maps on which we can follow, will we choose wisely?  If not the public at large is in damage control which can be the image of Rocky Marciano, he just keeps coming, pounding, coming and pounding like some frickin nightmare!

The Human Experience

panic-mode

They leaked what!

The Heads of State are in panic mode, what better time to write on our direction as a society and all the drama seasoned into the events from Heads of State around the world.  The event’s from 9/11 on this 15th anniversary keep unfolding, where as the ruling class is eating their own, a panic mode. What’s unfolding on many levels from banking, government, corporations and the tie to economics we experience too many loop holes and lies.

War:  If the Central Banks don’t get WWIII the debt can’t be reset, they’re broke, (QE) over leveraged, negative rates are quick sand for bonds.  Given that China, Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa have just joined together to create a $100 billion bank based in China, and that more trades are being settled in Yuan or Rubles instead of dollars the currency war is heating up.

Election:  If the proper person is not elected, I mean placed for the oligarchs, they’re going to jail. Some have went already.

Market:  From all the market manipulation at this point if you don’t hold physical gold the paper scheme created is a sham.  Deutsche Bank can’t deliver request.  Markets don’t like uncertainty linked to unpleasant surprises.

Allies:  This is the biggest shift almost like a pole reversal, the Western elites have painted themselves in a corner like the Three Stooges.  Larry Summers comments on this, “The U.S. has forced allies to make a choice between ourselves and China, and has ended up losing almost everybody.”

Corporations:  They’re in a minefield where they might not get out in one piece.

So on this 9/11 anniversary, the human experience created by the ruling class is in panic mode, watch them eat their own, cuz there’s nothing left!  We have a front row seat at Bozo’s Circus, go get that large Pop Corn, Snow-Caps and a drink as Mr. Ed goes into the Lion’s cage.

The Condition

Hey Pal

Hey Pal

OK you’re in for a treat,  just recently I’ve come to know and team up with an individual as “PERSPECTIVE”,   who not only rants on the conditions that cause divisions in society but helps you understand why in his own words.  Sharing a philosophy can give you a tool of understanding a condition,  the root which creates a mind sink of social actions we take part in our lives.  To many times the world around us fogs the mind where you do not see the truth,  be it coming from media, government bodies, schools, universities and entering the work force of a corporation can all have an effect on the way you think and act.   As history unfolds a division of the masses has been created and the condition that causes this is a fucking mind sink where you’re to believe you hate some country or someone.  It’s too bad for the humans who blow each other away and didn’t even know one another,  just put that head in the iron sights or scope and pull the trigger,  boom pink mist.  I guess that is easier than trying to work together or understanding the condition of differences.   Be that as it may,  it’s important today to utilize any tools you can find that help a thought process for a better understanding to switch off the bullshit.

Heroin Grip

Part 1 of a 3pt. series (pt. 2 Thank You for Saving Me, pt3 Good Bye My Broken Sunday)

Traffic is heavy worldwide, with the biggest producer being Afghanistan.

According to U.N. sponsored survey, as of 2004. Afghanistan accounted for production of 87 percent of the world’s heroin. Afghan opium kills 100,000 people every year worldwide.

The cultivation of opium in Afghanistan reached its peak in 1999, when 350 square miles (910 km2) of poppies were sown. The following year the Taliban banned poppy cultivation, a move which cut production by 94 percent.

By 2001 only 30 square miles (78 km2) of land were in use for growing opium poppies.

A year later, after American and British troops had removed the Taliban and installed the interim government, the land under cultivation leapt back to 285 square miles (740 km2), with Afghanistan supplanting Burma to become the world’s largest opium producer once more.

Opium production in that country has increased rapidly since, reaching an all-time high in 2006. War in Afghanistan once again appeared as a facilitator of the trade. Some 3.3 million Afghans are involved in producing opium.

At present, opium poppies are mostly grown in Afghanistan, and in Southeast Asia, especially in the region known as the Golden Triangle straddling Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Yunnan province in the People’s Republic of China.

There is also cultivation of opium poppies in the Sinaloa region of Mexico and in Colombia. The majority of the heroin consumed in the United States comes from Mexico and Colombia.

Up until 2004, Pakistan was considered one of the biggest opium-growing countries.Conviction for trafficking in heroin carries the death penalty in most Southeast Asian, some East Asian and Middle Eastern countries among which Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand are the most strict.

The penalty applies even to citizens of countries where the penalty is not in place, sometimes causing controversy when foreign visitors are arrested for trafficking, for example the arrest of nine Australians in Bali, the death sentence given to Nola Blake in Thailand in 1987, or the hanging of an Australian citizen Van Tuong Nguyen in Singapore.

It has been speculated that an unknown portion of  heroin related deaths are the result of an overdose or allergic reaction to quinine, which may sometimes be used as a cutting agent.A final factor contributing to overdoses is place conditioning. Heroin use is a highly ritualized behavior.

While the mechanism has yet to be clearly elucidated, longtime heroin users display increased tolerance to the drug in locations where they have repeatedly administered heroin.

When the user injects in a different location, this environment-conditioned tolerance does not occur, resulting in a greater drug effect. The user’s typical dose of the drug, in the face of decreased tolerance, becomes far too high and can be toxic, leading to overdose.


American Revolution Past and Present

The American Revolution was the political upheaval during the last half of the 18th century in which thirteen colonies in North America joined together to break free from the British Empire, combining to become the United States of America.  (From Wikipedia)

They first rejected the authority of the Parliament of Great Britain to govern them from overseas without representation, and then expelled all royal officials.

By 1774 each colony had established a Provincial Congress, or an equivalent governmental institution, to form individual self-governing states.

The British responded by sending combat troops to re-impose direct rule. Through representatives sent in 1775 to the Second Continental Congress, the new states joined together at first to defend their respective self-governance and manage the armed conflict against the British known as the American Revolutionary War (1775–83, also American War of Independence).

Ultimately, the states collectively determined that the British monarchy, by acts of tyranny, could no longer legitimately claim their allegiance.

They then severed ties with the British Empire in July 1776, when the Congress issued the Declaration of Independence, rejecting the monarchy on behalf of the new nation. The war ended with effective American victory in October 1781, followed by formal British abandonment of any claims to the United States with the Treaty of Paris in 1783.

The American Revolution initiated a series of social, political, and intellectual transformations in early American society and government. Americans rejected the oligarchies common in aristocratic Europe at the time, championing instead the development of republicanism based on the Enlightenment understanding of liberalism. Among the significant results of the revolution was the creation of a representative government responsible to the will of the people. However, sharp political debates erupted over the appropriate level of democracy desirable in the new government, with a number of Founders fearing mob rule.

Many fundamental issues of national governance were settled with the ratification of the Constitution of the United States in 1788, which replaced the relatively weaker first attempt at a national government, the Articles of Confederation adopted in 1781. In contrast to the loose confederation, the Constitution established a strong federated government.

The United States Bill of Rights (1791), comprising the first 10 constitutional amendments, quickly followed. It guaranteed many natural rights that were influential in justifying the revolution, and attempted to balance a strong national government with relatively broad personal liberties.

The American shift to liberal republicanism, and the gradually increasing democracy, caused an upheaval of traditional social hierarchy and gave birth to the ethic that has formed a core of political values in the United States.
