ELECTION 2010: Tea Party And Conservatives Continue The Surrender Of “We The People” To Private Corporate Control

ELECTION      2010


Tea Party And Conservatives Continue

The Surrender Of  “We The People” To

Private Corporate Control

.

{America Going In The Wrong Direction  You Betcha!}

Much of the talk About the Constitution and conservatism as its guardian, is steeped in Confirmation Bias.  Many political analyst share this ideological twist of fact: They Know Not What They Know They Are Biased To, but that stops no one from proclaiming what is in their imaginations as fact (over fiction).

Conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, also reference “We The People” as essentially anti government, so all about Freedom and Rights.  “Don’t Tread On Me”, being given by many in the Tea Party as a Libertarian right, yet that right is not held to universal context.  Most always it is dropped into the don’t mess with me bucket, which is filled with appeals to greed, plus opportunism and denial of effect to larger causes such as society or the environment.  My fantasy right over real sustainable Unalienable Rights.  Such mental abstraction play is classic to modern conservative framing and reframing of concept and context strategies.

Follow The Law!

Much of this supposedly pro-constitution pabulum being declared these days, is boiled to purity in a denial of the realities of connection and relation. Conservatism, however, is gaged and bound to not include and honest objective attempt at understanding the real influences opperating outside of their confirmation biased idea base.

I can see the appeal if I were constantly scheming opportunist, such as those often behaving on Wall Street, or otherwise a slave to an identity encapsulated in more and more money as self definition.  Why then it is easy to be seduced by the subjective challenge, and ignore ones collective self; get what you can any way you can get away with.  Me and my family becomes scripted as what my life is all about.

The human family, plus the Whole World Context, including suffering, exploitation, pollution and all the consequence of materializms degradation of society and the ecosystems? Why that is a thing to rationalize away as to why me and mine come above it.

And that is where opportunism and much conservatism have made their wedding vows.  In the economic sense, this is called anarchy capitalism. Their honeymoon is in convincing the rest of us that their vows are actually our cherished ones to Freedom and Liberty.  Conservative Christianity seems to be reversing the role of Jesus Christ as well, and the mission he undertook for those disadvantaged by situation. Each life has a constant pathway to Union or to separation.

The life of Christ has seemingly disappeared; Now, for a seemingly increasing number, the disadvantaged are scorned and declared to be losers being punished by God.  The empathetic and compassionate Christ is gone, except for the few self-saved entitled by their own definitions.

This is the same old dominator ideology sweeping conservatism down histories long failure drain.  We do not actually succeed at being gods over one another, for the effort makes one a spiritual loser. Humanity has the same needs and requirements, no matter wherever we are.  Ignoring the full impact of our actions for a select few that conceive them as a self possessed advantage given by the Divine, is the road to spiritual ruin.  Learn from mistakes? For all too many; mistakes are their bread and butter.

Sure  Everybody Says Move Or Look Forward These Days

The Arc of Advancement in history is brought out by Liberalism; the open way of honesty and path to enlightened understanding. This is not that “understanding” born of the dysfunctional psychological denial of the Law of Interrelationship on One Earth.  We work together to achieve understanding, or we work against one another to achieve division, then manipulation by power elites finishes, or wedges We off, We The People then, with no relevant right to vote.

Unfortunately for all of us, many a man will not face the cause of their motivations, but instead run on their ambition and feeling of direction.  Not much time for self inspection, but lot of diversionary interest, like sports for many, keep minds and hearts busy at other things.

The We In We

As it turns out; “We The People” do need our own protection from individual “private” attempts to control our rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.  Just a glance at a profound intrusion, such as the Great Oil Spill In The Gulf of 2010, acts as a traumatic example of how so called Private Enterprise can impact the environment and society via economic disaster to private citizens.

Other control of the public mind; mind control, has become fact, yet some well paid politicians and lobbyist have gone on to “think” less regulation is the answer.  The reverse reality of ideological purity.  With information as our source of knowledge of events in the world; just a handful of corporations control the vast majority of our news sources.

The Real Story

We The People require institutions empowered by us with governing oversight, through our chosen representatives, or else we surrender our right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.  These presumed Unalienable Rights are only guaranteed by our collective will, and not that of international corporate conglomerates.  Yet these very outside and top down interest are exactly what the “conservative” Supreme Court has surrendered for We The People.

Down With Big Government!!!

May Well Mean

Up With Corporate And Or Religious Doctrinaire Government With No Right To Vote! Hurray!!!

Corporations have more rights than individuals; you donate to anything from your pocket and you “fell the pain”, corporations donate and then socialize the loss onto We The People via price hikes.  You don’t have the right to socialize your loses by hiring your wage or income, unless that is, you create laws that protect your rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

As it is set up; the wealthy and powerful socialize their lifestyles upon the general population and resources of the Whole Planet.  We and It All picks up their pieces for them,–if we can afford too that is.  This is a fact of physics and natural law.

.

It seems an anathema to common sense, how conservatism can declare itself for our less and less cherished rights, being redefined away by them as they shout out from podium far and wide. I saw one conservative anti national health care politician with a sign saying; ‘Protect  Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness‘.

Example: Without National Health Care you have no right to Life, and so the rest.  Not really, as some 40,000 a year lost American souls could attest.  “Your money or your life” might be what a murderous mugger could ask you to chose, but it should not be the choice of a Free Society.  Not one with Inalienable Rights that is!

It is quite as if some have been seduced away from the broad and informed consciousness that Freedom and Liberty require to be held rightly. Now we see pandering to special power interest being called ours, then decrying the other “wasteful” sides special interest.  Differing to existential relativism is an easy Thought-terminating Cliché that hopes to fall into a Consensus Reality propped up by Appearance Reality charades.

In the abstract, conservative propaganda, streaming through the medias continuously, sells out the overall right for a select private practice dependent upon cash.  It is now pay as you go to get these rights or else you do not have them, and do not deserve them.  Unalienable Nothing.

The People

A revolution was fought by We The People, and a Civil War, to move this One Nation forward as One People governed by One Law and attending States laws.  We face a new and seemingly invisible tyranny; invisible from everpresence, like ones nose; the idea that the unaccountable individual can claim what they wish and care not of anyone else as long as they think a certain way, the corporate/business/bottom-line mindset way.  That is not Freedom.  It is anarchy.

Anarchy may be a kind of ultimate goal of humanity, but we have found that until we are all consciously aware of interconnection and interrelationship to All Things, we literally will not know how to act to deserve an unbridled and unabashed Right to Liberty. Untill such an auspicious occasion, we must know how to compromise for the wellbeing of all and not just me.

I Am Pro Simplicity

Honoring ignorance or honoring wisdom, a simple choice one may think, but in practice, they say Americans judge in the moment how the economy is doing for them.  This is the momentary trap of the self situation that ignores context, which many seem to never get their foot of citizenship out of.

The Real Socialism Behind Capitalism

The Real Socialism Behind

Capitalism

And The Secret War To Control Appearance Reality

You VS Me

I get a charge out of the Darwinian “moral” argument most often given for the essentially apologetic capitalism higher order rationalization.  The idea creates the appearance that capitalism is the only rational means of insuring your rights, your freedom. It is solidly delusional, yet for its adherents and advocates, its severely truncated notion of Life and context seems all that is valid.

For them, the proof is in the modern worlds pudding. And if that pudding is proving, or being suggested to be made of not wholesome ingredients, or is way past its shelf life, is to be viewed as being an unwholesome thing to correct in itself. Only view the good stuff, or allegedly good stuff, and ignore the mountains of problematic effects being created. A value is made upon the commodities of fear and how it can protect ignorance.  Now the equation is cast as your rights to do what you want when you want, devoid of other notions of responsibility or accountability to ones actions, and exactly how far those actions may reach.

Those suggesting looking up at the mountain ranges surrounding the individuals identity are called a name to suggest their negativity is their problem trying to be imposed upon you. This feels then, like an attempt to take away of your freedom.

One is now held in a conceptual separation chamber, where the truth of connection and relation being sucked out of it can feel to be of someone others doing.  Politics, economics, and much other social dynamics can now prey upon the separation of the individuals mindframes by pandering to us vs them consciousness. The “better angels” of perception are gone, while the negative ones prick and pull at ones personal soul.

We are left with the aberrant idea that the individual is all that is; no society, no environment to consider, no accountability to social and other ecosystems with all their interconnection and interrelationships.  A kind of fictional union within ignorance, or of an unknowable faith in the negative, seems to take care of all other aspects of Life and living.  Have a problem? It must be your fault, and yours alone.  But what if the problem is with the roads? the air? the water? or a neighbor?  How about Government!? Even solipsism has its drawbacks.

Watching Rationalization Work

I had a job in construction, where one Christmas the owner did not give out any bonuses.  He had supposedly gone to Nevada to gamble in order that he could present us with some Christmas gifts. He skipped the party that he insisted we all must attend, leaving his prime investor out on a psychological plank at the missing gala event.  After much information that he would be here in 45 min, then in 30; We waited around for over an hour more, then left.

This is what this entrepreneurial individual did; gambled in many ways, the net loses eventually socialized onto his business and employees, except in some respects the one he was having a affair with.  I later heard that she told him that it is we who should be giving him a present, and be thankful that we had jobs.

We used our own tools at our own expense, which helped create a kind of resentment about the job, especially when new or temporary workers were told to just borrow tools from the guys. Because our tools were not necessarily the best for the business, much more time was taken to do work, that with the right tools would have been much more productive.

However, we did many jobs at “time and materials”, so the extra time was usually socialized onto those we were doing work for.  Arizona is a “right to work” state, meaning the workers have little say or bargaining power–few unions.  Your freedom to work was at the mercy of this one way kind of relationship, which is at times called wage slavery–take it or do without. Our employer would make sure we all were on his tax cutting side when it came to voting on state propositions.

These are the situational distinctions that are often more at the root of social problems in the workplace.  Ones situational perspective often defines and details the considerations we have to bolster our own positions identity, while assigning the negative feeling toward the other side of the relationship equation.  Control identity frames and you can control individual belief.

I went to public (socialist) high school. Walked on socialist sidewalks.  It would seem odd to carry your own sidewalk with you, picking it up as you went along…

The Psychology Of The Political

If you ever  wonder why delusion and denial are so rampant on the political right, you need to comprehend the identity issues they are tying to avoid, along with the perversion of notions of rights and responsibilities they maintain to keep their Appearance Reality intact. Along with this mental and emotional task of forming a coherent and consistent rationalization matrix, comes its attendant Consensus Reality platform, along with all the automatic pilot Confirmation Bias that aides and abets in keeping delusional mindsets in order.

In these individual political equations, Cognitive Dissonance is to be buried and overrun by emotional “reality” framing; the casting of the other sides position as deceptive, as other and unwelcome. This allows a kind of firewall to develop towards ideas, individuals and actions beyond the ideas Consensus Realities parameters of acceptance. The Right has many individual propagandist and institutional ones to spread their emotional hazing into the general public.  It would seem that many are unawares of the societal manipulation going on via emotionalism entrapment to policy choices viewed as wholesome or not to “their” view.

Do As I Say And Not As I Do

Many years ago I lived in a city with a vibrant arts and craft community.  Near downtown, a kind of open marketplace evolved on the streets, with arts and craft booths, tables and all making for a pleasant walking and shopping experience.

Those who proved quite successful at this open air site, some of them at least, moved into a nearby building that evolved into a kind of inside marketplace, and attached to it, spaces of now sophisticated large craft displays connected enclosed shops.  The successful craft folks now had employees and store managers, plus all the rest that comes with having a roof and title over ones head.

Now relationships had changed from the early days to the current. These once outside shops now found the outside shops as being unfair competition.  They passed petitions around, intended to have a law passed which more heavily taxed the outside booths, while requiring them to move away to areas well removed from their popular local.

So called success and opportunity, often veiled opportunism, had developed the individuals perspective to defend its turf at the expense of what was the very nature that they themselves once depended upon to get ahead.  I was shocked that we could so easily turn our backs and identity from our own past, then seek to punish others for essentially walking in our own old shoes.

Anarchy capitalism is far removed from so called free enterprise.  It keeps the freedom part, a freedom to get away with what I wish, while inhibiting others from doing the same.  Much of the corporate world is filled with “success” socialized on the back of imposed inhibition.  the abstractions, however, remain the same.

Now corporations can flood impression via advertisement of their viewpoint onto the population, but framed as our viewpoint.  After all, they have cornered the avenue as being job creators, show the face of employees that may look just like you, just trying to have a life and do good in the world.

Any accountability or responsibility placed on the corporation by Democracy can now be called damaging; job killing and cost raising. And so the Appearance Reality would seem. What is not seen is; if it is pollution, infrastructure, job exportation to cheep labor markets, whatever, the cost will be socialized onto society anyway.  Yet the solutions may not even happen, as the general populations relative income continues to decline.  Yet the mind control of populations to cut off their own blood supply continues as conservatism claims grand abstraction pandering as the answer.  Liberalism is cast into a one way view, as if it is like conservatism.

In an always changing universe of Life, conservatism claims to freeze place and idea, a delusion, while liberalism requires broad input, review and consideration, the very thing that in the modern world of so much stress and distraction of consciousness, would seem hard to come by.  Easy abstractions can loom large as easy answers, but actually, they seem to solve little to noting of the problematic issues facing society and the world.

This is the nature of opportunism; me and mine before you and yours.  It divides and conquers societal cohesion, but produces a vacuum to be filled by rationalization and cognitive dissonance avoidance.  That avoidance and its cost are socialized upon society, while the rationalizing individual emotionally validates their bias as being the truthful one, the respectable one.

The Idea Of Capitalism And Socialism Versus Reality

Here we are, in a world often defined by falsity; by false associations and false assumption, but held uncheckable by ideological persuasion and a blinded individual position.  The truth is that everything is interrelated and connected.  The lines drawn of relevant association and responsibilities are easily erased or morphed to suit ones own viewpoint.  But to call that viewpoint beyond criticism or scientific analysis, is deception at work, for some reason, ignorance is effectively being protected.

Generally, Liberalism (10 laws of liberalism )- is an open book; open to evaluation and correction.  This is not the case for conservatism, for it is fear and insecurity based at its root; dependent upon us vs them psychological validation.  Conservatives are emotionally misanthropic, needing to but most of humanity down to, as usual, create an illusion that they are up; more moral, more worthy. This renders the real truth assailable and deniable by various postures such as “fair and balanced”, or “all experts agree”.

Truth is.  Truth has little to do with fair and balanced, nor with blind acceptance of ideology as “The only way”. Conservatism in todays world intends a kind of surrender to uncheckable idea.  Faith and trust are then open to being highly misguided, yet this affords conservatism with an ever refreshing blame game– its all liberals fault. These days the conservatives even reverse their support for ideas they previously supported if a supposed liberal now suggest them, it is as if they expect us to have tea bags for brains.

We live in a modern world brimming with delusion and deception as guardian angels to division.  As in the various anti government groups; sure you are against government, especially in democracy, if you want to get away with something in relationship to The Whole of Life.  You want to ignore or demean other societal problems which you could impact.  You are concerned with your own stress, not acknowledging that stress in others is just as relevant to Life.

Yet since these personal stresses do exist, and so do the full context ones, they will be socialized upon the rest of society as well as the earth.  Pollution, climate change, wages, wasteful materialism, build in obsolescence, manipulating the social media with propaganda, proliferating fear and ignorance, exploitation of society and environments; these are the mainstays of the economic, social and political right for a reason.

The Threat To Freedom And Liberty May Well Be By Those Proclaiming Their Cause To Be Freedom And Liberty

Democracy, with its Liberalism roots, are a threat to those intending to live above the rest.  They and their followers are programmed to see abstractions such as freedom and rights in a polysemantic light, one that looks down on society from above, defining identity in this one way aberration.

As long as democracy is relevant, those who feel themselves above it will create idea and institution to serve their inherently non democratic intent.  They need ignorance to rule, to rule well enough to contain and constrain Democracy.  It is we who must wonder about the nature and reason of their rationalization, and of our own.

Why is The Right peppered with the usage of the Thought-terminating Clichés., some of which are often coded in name calling?  Mind control techniques are rampant on The Right; Why? The Right proclaims things like Freedom, Rights, even Morality and Responsibility, yet why are their definitions so one way, thus avoiding the issues of full context, full relationship and thus full comprehension?

While capitalism is taunted as the only viable system, the socialism endemic to it is ignored just as pollution and the possible fatal damaging of earth ecosystems are derided and demeaned emotionally from The Right.  The real state seems to be one of denial, of hiding and obfuscations place in front of knowing a real truth. A designer “Truth”, full of ideological bias for minds rendered incapable of rational thought and comprehension, is given as the common sense, or gut understanding requiring little or no factual impression beyond the confirmation of bias data set.

Democracy depends upon an enlightened democratic sight, and not a blinded one.

Vortex 2: Dreaming Of Tornadoes

Vortex 2: Here They Go Again

It seemed to be turning into 2009; tornadoes in the South and East, the Plains–boring!

Until now.

May 10 may be a big day for the tornado seekers of Vortex 2, with an outbreak possible right up their alley.

Then comes the choice dilemma; chose a storm to chase that the whole armada can catch in time. That will be the question.

They picked just one whole of last year, not that the storms that do not produce tornadoes are not important–they are a major part of the study to determine why one storm is capable of a twister and another not quite.  However.  I do not believe the chase team wakes up thinking; I wish we would finally get a non tornado producing storm, all these tornadoes are getting dull.

The sweat on the heads of the decider, if lucky, will add to the humidity just enough to tip the scales, but not too much to interfere with the RFD.

The other luck to wish for would be that no people or structures are destroyed no matter Vortex 2 or not.

FEARCASTING : Conservatism’s Romance With Ignorance

FEARCASTING :

Conservatism’s Romance With Ignorance

Fear-Casting in this post means, using ignorance and fear to promote insecurity and paranoia to further emotionalized thinking toward protection from threat.  A negative platform is used to elevate self identity for ones religious, political, or so called moral value agenda.  It is a mainstay of conservative ideologies, and what it does spiritually and psychologically is; remove the individual from the present moment.

In Christian terms, fear-casting is manipulation of ones imperfections to project a future threat by oneself or others. Thus fear of hell or of sin occupies ones perception, while the things of Love fall back into the now hidden Light, leaving positive platitude abstractions as the beckoning Promised Land.

There is a newish trend in Christianity that some conservatives are using to rationalize possession and wealth as God given endowments “proven” by select interpretations of Biblical references.  The problem with using the Bible to prove things is that one can prove most anything through it.  My own “proofs” here select out from my desires to evidence my rationalization to some degree.

Unfortunately most “Truth” using a Biblical facade must ignore, intentionally or otherwise, the many Gospels selected out of the Bible through the ages.  This exclusion must rationalize, or otherwise assume those other gospels were false and otherwise heresy. One thing we do know is that the government and church officials chose to consolidate gospels that more suited their own confirmation bias, that suited a consolidation of church and state over the individuals spiritual initiative. We are seeing something similar these days as in a harmonizing of Christian tenets to suit a corporate and consumptive ideology that must ignore its attending negative social and environmental impacts. Some Christians and corporatist alike must rationalize their way as the right way, while contradictory information is cast out or rendered irrelevant by decree.

Did I mention; Fear is the rule of doubt over that of Love? Fearcasting cast out Love, especially any sense of unconditional Love possible through the individuals initiative.  Fear is anti-spiritual when used to ones own advantage, and in the definition of Christ message; anti Christ message. Many a religious message is imbued with fear, and rationalizations for it, than for a proactive stance for Love, which some religious followers employ regardless of negative message programing campaigns.

In the modern world, various interest wish to control fear and target it via ideology to unseat Love from the ruling perceptual throne. (God is Love) Whether it is the liberalism that Christ professed, or the fundamental inclusion of all society via ideals intended by the Founding Fathers, today’s conservatives are being seduced by their own ignorance to follow evil in the name of God and Country.  Evil is ignorance in action.

From Fox News bias, to the many right wing propaganda, fear and loathing merchants in “The Liberal Mainstream Media” (actually a predominantly money driven corporate media), the spiritual, or human requirements, to care for Creation, are reduced to competition and threats from other than ones own Confirmation Biased glasses myopic belief system.  This paradigm sets up the philosophies of cancer; divide and conquer, expand and consume at all cost, quite like the corporate model’s mindsets alignment with psychosis; all about me and no accounting for those others beyond.

These beliefs come to institute ignorance of The Whole, and ignorance of the real human heart in others, reducing them to dehumanized takers, slackers, or the immoral without “values”, out to take from your success and give to themselves.  This is an ideology of separation and alienation.  It is an antithesis to the message of Jesus Christ as well as The Founding Fathers of the USA.  It is evil in action; Fear-Casting, controlling ones emotion and position in the present moment by extending it to a conceptual hypothetical “bad” in possession of those alien others.  Conservatism is self reductive, excluding the diversity of Life from the individuals inclusion in the present moment, except perhaps, in platitude.

Ignorance, then gains great currency, while its spread and emotive viral influence dumbs down the population of conservatives by wedding their perception to an alienated universe out to reduce or seduce you. You must then seek to control it.  This is partly done by detaching ones identity from it, then attempting to posses it as property, as a kind of entitlement to demonstrate the value one has by the goods and services one is entitled to via money, position or Divine favor.

Here is another great hiding ground of ignorance and Darkness; money is an abstraction, it does not denote godliness or success, except as one being consumed by the need of money and not of Love.  The love of money is the rejection of The Whole and of God for a substitute idol worship.  If you here money is not evil, it is the love of it according to scripture, you are likely hearing from one needing to avoid facing the deception that goes unaccounted for in abstractions.

“Come, enter the Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was sick and you visited me.” Then Jesus will turn to those on His left hand and say, “Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit me.” These will ask Him, “When did we see You hungry, or thirsty or sick and did not come to Your help?” And Jesus will answer them, “Whatever you neglected to do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!”

The Evidence For Love Over Ignorance And Doubt

KJV  1 john 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

{This from the WWW:}

Jesus the Advocate for the Poor
Home > Modern Descriptions of Jesus > Jesus the Advocate for the Poor

“Jesus had a special sense of mission to poor and oppressed people. At the outset of his ministry, sometimes referred to as Jesus’ mission statement, Jesus stood up in the synagogue at Nazareth and read from the prophet Isaiah:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)

The biographies of Jesus depict him repeatedly reaching out to those at the bottom of the social pyramid–poor people, women, Samaritans, lepers, children, prostitutes and tax collectors. Jesus was also eager to accept people who were well-placed, but he made clear that all, regardless of social position, needed to repent. For this reason, he invited the rich young man to sell all of his possessions and give the proceeds to the poor. (Matthew 19:16-30, Luke 18:18-30, Mark 10:17-31)

Jesus commanded, “Love your neighbor.” When asked to define “neighbor,” Jesus expanded the traditional meaning of the word–defining our neighbor as anyone who is in need, including social outcasts: “But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.” (Luke 14:13)

In his portrayal of the day of judgment, Jesus pictured people from all nations gathered before him, separated into “sheep” and “goats.” (Matthew 25:31-46) To the “sheep” he says, “Come you blessed of my Father, for I was hungry and you fed me…” In their astonishment they ask, “When did we do that?” And he answers, “When you did it to the lowliest of my brothers (and sisters).” Conversely, to the “goats” he says, “Out of my sight, you who are condemned, for I was hungry and you did not feed me…”

Jesus himself cared for those in need by feeding the hungry. Crowds of four thousand (Mark 8:1-13) and five thousand (Mark 6:30-44) had assembled to listen to Jesus. They soon became hungry. When his disciples suggested that Jesus send the people away to buy food, he responded by saying “I have compassion on these people…” and “you give them something to eat.” He proceeded to perform miracles to feed these large crowds of hungry people.

Adapted from J. Bennett Guess, “Biblical Foundations for Justice Advocacy,” UCC Justice and Witness Ministries.”

–====–

We can see the obvious; that many conservatives condition giving as well as respect for the poor and disadvantaged by their “superior” self idea position.  Indeed, a movement of ignorance is now afoot to portray the poor and the needy in society as being given the judgment of God, evidenced by their lowly position.  This is a blatant anti Christ Message.  It is the elevation of the selfishness of a Darwinian social ethos in a society based upon pyramidal economy schemes being cast into being the “obvious” grace of God.  Materialism, and having, being turned into apparent spirituality, completely anti Jesus ethos, but is now grand moral value affirmation.

We have fear of loss, and fear of others out to take, as a driving “value” in much conservatism.  It is separation and alienation wed to time-line projections; from presumed Christian validation of serving God and future reward premise, to future self assurance either monetarily/materially, or in a promised afterlife.  Christ message was for the immediate; the Presence of God alive in the present moment.

Demonize Others To Control Truth Perception Via Emotional Judgment

The conservative right wing requires cognitive dissonance abatement programs; ideas that justify their separation and alienation from others, and thus ultimately from God or the Universe in the here and now.  The dissonance between belief and the life actually being lived can be faced and resolved by reason; or insulated against by denial and rationalization.

Love must be contained and even demonized; helping the poor and needy becomes “Bleeding heart liberals”.  Societal responsibility for The Commons; that Whole of interconnection that makes a Place and its citizens A People, becomes “Tax and spend”.  ‘You must pledge to not raise taxes or you are evil!’

Endless conspiracies are devised by the likes of Glen Beck, much of the rest of Fox News, and the many other demagogues like Rush Limbaugh, who display their own mental health and cognitive dissonance issues and confirmation bias to the extreme. The propaganda is delivered with self righteousness and contempt for those who are different.

This attitude seeks out the weakness (weakness in understanding and insecurity) in viewers and listeners, the fearful “taught” by the pedagogue to know what to fear and why.  Unfortunately for much of the audience, a seemingly coherent to ideology rationalization/imagination can go on to seem as proof of cause and effect.  It is no accident that science, peer review science that is, has fallen victum to demagogues who find select facts not fitting to ideological premise.  The current “War On Science” is part of the campaign to make fear the rule of law, and not actually facts in context.

The “best” way to ignore and remain ignorant of other hearts is to make them seem inhuman and a threat to you, basic tribalism fearcasting.  This approach will connect like a magnet to those who were just looking for the right rationalizations to deny Love and place Hate in its place inside their fears.  We abandon God for the seduction of opportunism’s temptation’s promise of comfort. In our materialism paradigm; these will be many, and their motivation emotionally clear in the highly polluted stream they are swimming in.

This whole ad-hominem crusade is being waged against Democracy, Freedom and a pluralistic America, by the right wing segregation campaign.  They are forced into evil by ignorance parading around as enlightenment, and must deliver its fear based bias as The Truth itself.  Truncated notions of Truth, Democracy, Freedom and self responsibility to The Whole of Life, come packaged and ready to be received by ignorance as wisdom itself.  To the emotions of those true believers on the right, the propaganda stream of righteousness is imbibed as life sustaining pure water, yet the disdain of their misanthropic inebriation is most evident.  Such is the nature of self deception and denial; “Whole Love?  What the blank is that!  Get a job and get a life you loser.  You socialist commie fascist are all alike.”

My hypothetical quote above is an example of the psychology of the Thought-Terminating-Cliche´, these are designed to provide psychological cover for the lack of true knowledge and comprehension of others interest.  These are a pandemic on right wing “truth telling” mono and dialogs. These are also prevalent on many far left commentaries, and even “middle of the road” notions that see the political extremes as somehow disconnected from the whole. Pretty, much, any excuse proffered to demonstrate ones superiority to others comes with psycho-spiritual framing that separates one from others.

Instituting Ignorance

The liberal media, (which should be liberal in a democracy; allowing differing viewpoints and a wide range of issue coverage), is demonized and turned into a Thought-terminating-Cliché, as many notions are a mainstay on the right.  The abstraction and projection based profile of the conservative disengaged mind-frame, traps them into their fear and insecurity, making them primed and vacuumed ready to draw in the varying fear and loathing personalization campaigns.

Championed by the Republican party, some conservative Democrats, and the vast corporate confirmation biased media’s security interest, most every imaginable fear taggable to the right wing framed in notion of liberals, is cast out with hook, line and sinker into ignorances seas of uncertainty.  It is no accident that issues such as poverty and pollution are seemingly vacant in conservative news and views; except to validate their own circular reasoning perceptual prison bars as “The American Way”.

It is the passionate blind leading the susceptible blindfolded.  God and nation are detached an compartmentalized to ones own security interest and not that of a full Love in Life.

Love is this, unconditional Love is this; engaging Creation in the present moment with all one has.  This is abandonment to the Will of God, while being possessed by the unknown, by ignorance to forward projections of security, are beliefs designed to create doubt and insecurity, as well as assume a negative idea for those not quite like oneself and ones belief system. Many a conservative Christian is being consumed by the levels of their own paradigms conserved ignorance.  Conservatism itself, is in need of all of our understanding and compassion; that the light they profess may see The Light of Love, our God.

It is this sort of contempt for Creation and its parting out to the highest bidder, that produces the callused contempt breeding diatribes of fear and loathing on The Right.  They feel with their own ignorance, with its over layer of grandiosity of ego, elevated to God hood, yet actually are abandoned by the Ways of Life in the Living Now.  In this pruned by ideology and insecurity Now, they are easily set upon by those deemed unworthy or ungrateful, who as they define them, are out to threaten their fear based security interest.  It becomes them or me, ‘us and them’ in the right wing deconstruction perception.  The righteous become trapped in the quicksand of their own ignorance, with the desperate insecurity driving the rationalizations for evil to be made to appear as Right.

By “palling around with” Evil, one is able to leap into fear-cast ideas, with ignorance as ones guide, able then to making statements such as “Palling around with terrorist”. The received cheers and taunting towards ones political opponent, smells to the ego like victory and the binding of cause to purpose.  All being “fair” in love, war, and seemingly politics.

A complete seduction out of The Now, where God is present with us, to extrapolations of future and past presumption devoid of present Love and connection to All.  Instead of Love being possessed and overflowing in the Now, it becomes hate via the absence of love.

Note:

Demonization

In religious terms; those suggesting Satanic of demonic influence in order to effectively surrender to fear and insecurity along with a projected  socio-political agenda-narrative; are themselves, palling around with evil.  As is often the case, perception is in the eye of the beholder, and not necessarily at all in reality.

Reality “falls” to contorted cognitions designed to suit desired perception identity. Far right conservatives (and others usually exposing absolute attitude) employ these negative influences to project the need for force over reason as the means to control reality.  It is in this endeavor that ignorance can appear as good.  By “Nature” this kind of good will corrode consciousness, for ignorance is not knowledge and so, not understanding.


What Humans Do In The Name Of God

In The Name Of God Much Is Mistaken

God Said What? Who Said?


This post is about the nature of religion, belief, faith, truth, love, evil, trust, honesty and knowing; I “know” I likely left some aspects of this post out.

I am writing this article to address a well meaning book (I Don’t Have Enough FAITH to Be an ATHEIST) that I was sent to seemingly purge out the falsity of my atheist ways.  I am not an atheist!,  so there is some perceptual problem apparently.

Some of our fellows feel they can tell what we should be thinking, cause they “know” what they believe in.  This approach for defining reality by belief, is fraught with a possibility of hidden evil, by evil I mean the things which ignorance and emotion can do to human consciousness in the name of reason.  Most of us in established religious groups, do not know all to what we belong to; its reason for being and our abilities to freely wonder about it. We are psychologically and logically setup.

Though indoctrinated into Catholicism via Catholic grammar school, I was a kind of agnostic/atheist when in my early youth; too much tragedy–(–a later link–) with no signs whatsoever of cosmic care. That changed in an instant when I encountered a thing beyond reason–Divine Intervention.   ENCOUNTER WITH THE SUPERNATURAL: SIGNS FROM GOD

I remain in respect for atheist and agnostics who are humanist, those who intend to “do right” (as in the Categorical Imperative) even though they think no one or no Thing is watching or cares.  That is spiritual strength; an awareness that I will do right because right is right to do. I align with Truth.  Wrongness contradicts the life that I am to its foundation, so I reject it for what is a higher purpose–rightness beyond subjective superficiality of desire or temptation.  Religious orthodoxies are quite threatened by these folks, seeming to not belive humans can do right without their ideas breathing down their necks.

This doing right on ones own, is much more an achievement than those who “do what they are told” because of fear of God, brown-nosing to Authority, Don’t want to go to hell, The comfort perks and spiritual “surety” of religious community, or looking for a good place in the afterlife. The humanist position takes courage, and the other conformity to outside ideas, and presumably much internalized dichotomy from temptation suppression.

Being verified by outside ideas tends to stimulate the impulse to spread those ideas to others in order that they too think like one thinks one does.  This sort of prostilization dependency loop creates a kind of self motivating confirmation bias in seeing others change from how, “I once was, like you.”, to my new community of embracing acceptance.

{ Some religions use “shepherding”, where the energy of new converts is watched and micromanage closely to conform to “correct” thought (I was involved with a group helping people exit cult entrapment).}  The warmth and purpose of community association, with all the human and assumed spiritual/emotional perks that come with that; a kind of love, respect, care for one another, bonding and extended family.

Evangelical Realism

(Book: I Don’t Have Enough FAITH to Be an ATHEIST, by Geisler and Turek, chapter 14.) Fallible people write books all the time that have no errors. …. 3. Therefore the Bible cannot err. Notice anything missing in their logic?

The Easy Road


Other human beings associated with your culture; who claim apiori truth from narratives claimed to be infallible, are a common human issue wherever one goes upon this earth.  Native groups claim fantastic stories as the Primal Cause of The People.  These become conserved orthodoxies with a sense of our truth as The Truth.  We also have tribalism interfacing with these differing stories.  We then layer on human role differentiations and ways of perceiving the wonders of Life codified to these stories.  They make sense to those immersed inside the culture, but maybe not so much to the rest of humanity who live outside of it.

Yet we are human.  We have pretty much the same needs. We also have pretty much the same faults and errors in cognitive perception.  We may think others should do as we wish.  Life would be much better for me that way.  Achieving kinds of order in the organization of society may make society function as a greater whole, but that does not mean that that whole is more right or true.  Truth does not solely depend on numbers or “winners” in a narrative.  I so many ways; might is used to make right in materialistic and spiritual claimed societies, especially when God is defined as the maker and doer of life and death and we are, or are said not to be, on It or His side, or to come under eternal fire.

.

A culture comes with automatic positives for some or most people; place, belonging, purpose, reliable order, safety in some respects; all while Love seeks to bond us no matter what, Love seeks to teach us more than the limitations of ourselves, Love makes us into more magnificent beings…  Love, respect, daily effort, all the must have’s for healthy living try to make their way into whatever culture we happen to be closest to.  The narration of what is right or wrong, or in order or not, will come into various states of harmony or disharmony in us as the individual relates to their greater connection of place and assumed purpose—as the Real Truth exist in perfection not likely in any of our conscious possession.

We then have a kind of weakness that can be manipulated by physical and authority power.  The soft spots of separation and alienation, shame and ostracism, can bend the individual to accept stories and explanations at face value.  Again; a survival strategy that does not denote truth or rightness, but is often presented as such.– You do this “Or else!”

Probing Weakness For Its Societal Value By Ignorance Known As Opportunism

“But I know what I feel!”

Self dissonance, as a threat to connectivity, will create stress in ones emotions as well as perceived causes of it.  As always, we can be more right or more wrong about it, for we do not always know what part our imagination plays, or how a scripted interpretation may be skewing what we see of ourselves and of what others are doing.  Usually, a strong attitude will show the lack of evidence one has to make a truly logical case by the facts.  Might is trying to substitute for right by force of rationalization and not honest reason.

Our emotions are subjective; we are making them, yet we often attribute the cause of them to be in others and situations.  You make me feel!—- These things may play their part, but it is often “easy” to project the badness upon someone other than oneself.  Projection is a self protective mechanism.  Emotions, however, no matter how confident or in support of a fine narrative, do not denote rightness, they denote reaction.

This primitive survival phenomenon of reaction to the external by ones idea of it, is a powerful persuasive animal impulse for the disadvantaged, the lonely, those in spiritual and emotional stress, and oh yes; those not entitled to question authority or use critical thinking ability to discern fact from fiction (except where sanctioned).  The immersion experience; in family, groups, cults and cultures, can leave one not quite knowing where ones boundaries are.  We belong to a kind of whole, yet do not necessarily know what it is about nor where it is going; we are written into the story.

What is Behind The Fix That Is On?  Questions That May Not Be Allowed To Be Answered

Conservatism in general, tends to buttress presumption of knowns, seeing change induced by outer causes inclusion as being erosion of belief.   Conservative ideologies have an intrinsic problematic place; self preserving amidst a pluralistic world of other self preserving conceptual paradigms.  This produces the sense of “natural” human dichotomy; where other systems are seen as alien, and likely in negative framed competition against our true idea of The Truth.

Belonging to anything, especially the narratives of confident conservatism, is in and of itself, a seemingly good thing; a protective and creative connection in its own kind of Commons, or shared definition of life.  While immersion experience may seem healthy overall psychologically, with all its support, affirmation, and place within The Story, critical awareness can be subdued or completely repressed, trapping the individual and possibly the group, in a kind of ignorance–the fertile fields where evil can breed illusion and delusion undetected.

False premise

That book I am writing this post in part about; said there are just 3 kinds of belief regarding God; theist, pantheist, and no God, like humanist.  Theist believe God made everything; pantheist believe God is in everything; and unbelievers like humanist, believe we are all on our own.  I know this idea of deconstructive reductionism is used to clarify differences, especially between theism and pantheism.  They say Buddhist are pantheist for instance.  These differences are human made ones about how to think of God or not.  I submit the conceptions of The Divine are not honestly reducible to these either or absolutes.  The clarification, or quantification, obscures the nuance and complexity of experience as it manifest.

Considering the idea of God is an abstraction, I have known of many Christians and churches that say God is Love.  I do not disagree with the claim, but does it define; made love, is in love, or that humanist do not love?  This is part of religions problem, and especially these who try to intellectually compartmentalize and reduce humanity to its differences regarding who has the real God.

(Just a coincidence seeming to coincide with what once would be called tribal difference? Did God  know we would have debate and draw perhaps mistaken conclusions about God from our problematic human perceptive?  Are we to assume a final judgement on being right or wrong over how we thought mistakenly, or in error, determines a life’s truly spiritual merit?).

Evangelicals in particular; make many wishful and magical claims at “knowing” how the Bible is true, with their current version of the Jesus Of Nazareth story as true.  The proof is actually faith and belief, which are, though we may hate to admit it; at the mercy of ignorance.  We claim our ignorance is Truth along with whatever is actually true in these narratives.  With ignorance being in some manner worshiped as Truth and Gods Word, evangelicals are left with likely Evil (ignorance in action) as part of their belief matrix.

Each preacher rearranges the story-lines and the interpretations of one society to presumably fit seamlessly into today’s world.  Today’s world is not fully known by anyone, just as the jumping to conclusion about the ways God is or is not conceived by all. Presumptions are repeated over and over again in the name of God, but are they really?

Those claiming to be living directly in the Bibles way are imagining they are.  There is no proof that they are; except their belief as a self described reborn evangelical, an assumption.  I do not know you are “reborn” or actually believe in God, or are assuming God is real, going along can be little more than the comforting acceptance of successful mimicry.

The issues with Biblical infallibility are many. Many contradictory and false statements occur within the Bible, leaving one to wonder what “Truth” evangelicals think they are actually following?  And what motivates them to make unfounded claims?  And it only gets worse; the New Testament’s narrative has been manipulated by humans throughout the ages.  Political and religious interest have deleted or demonized some Gospels; particularly those which seemed to suggest the life of Jesus portrayed God as being also in Creation, as Buddhist might.  The adjustments have become so established, and their exclusions so denounced; that the familiar has come to rule as the winner and presumed owner of the new one and only True Truth. I will put others questions of Biblical authenticity and fallibility later.

So we must ask this question; Would God not know how questionable the nature of books of the Bible are, and actually respect those who think for themselves to seek out the Truth beyond religions scripted assemblages?  So what is really behind much organized religion and its hierarchical blame and shame mindsets claiming to be Divine?  Why is so much conservatism FEAR CASTING ?, a kind of cognitive spell cast over perceptual awareness, not so unlike Black Magic.

My Definition of Essential Spiritual Concepts

Firstly. God in not an intellectual argument requiring proof and specific miracles, as most religions go on and on and on about; study, study and be grilled.  God does not require begging and proofs or our claims of existence, loyalty or being addressed in the proper manner; these are human dysfunctional issues; God is about the real.  One intends to be within Gods Way or not, by measures of knowing, belief or ignorance.

What God’s Message Told Me:

God Is Love; Love Is All

Evil is the lack of Love.

A simple message of unconditional Love, (as sometimes opposed by an individuals subjective love of possession), unconditional Love not requiring much explanation or orders for conformity and rules affecting ones future heavenly abeyance. I have lived in ignorance of this Primal Cause and Its Coherency with my life, allowing emotions and insufficient information to draw their own conclusion, producing a form of evil that left me seemingly unable to see Love.  Love is everywhere, but I was not aware of Its image and likeness as my own purpose.

By extrapolation then; Evil in the world is Ignorance; a kind of ignorance of the self that transcends reality to affect our emotions and awareness through our cognitive and creative abilities into our environments.  We can produce, with our ignorance, surprising things; some of genius and some of grave error.  But can we distinguish which is which and what may be behind their curtains?

Can you know when you are in accordance with Creation; The Way of God, or with evil; the way of ignorance (confusion/illusion/delusion) pretending to be known?  These empirical emotional states seem as knowns. Example: I can be sure you are a fool by not commenting to me, or by commenting to me in ways I disagree with.  I can also think you are “on my side” by claiming my insights are shared by you. But what is actually known by me of you through my feelings that are not Love?  That is the question.

{Fortunately or not; this question was given directly to me from a transcendant source imposed upon me, quite impossible to explain objectively –If one has not had this experience. Subjectively delivered truth given in the name of objectivity is not possible to explain scientifically, except by going to theories of cognitive dysfunctional experience. That Love covers everything in existence from God’s Will, is mind boggling, as well as emotionally humbling in the extreme.  It is up to me to see It, or not to see It.  All that was so wrong to my feelings were never intended that way by The Divine. I have no other “how to” formula to convey about the realization.}

There was a widely circulated article a few years back by a Christian conservative arguing that love is the problem.  He went on to confuse the self love of possessing Creation in ones own name, with Big Love–that which unites and embraces All.  From my own experience; I knew how wrong this guy was and how confused he was.  As the authors of the book I brought up; kinds of good intentions are passed around like torches of enlightenment and reason, while they may well be running on the fuels of reaction and ignorance.  God is not about how well we suppress our love by living in perceptual inhibition.

More speculations on interpreting my experience of The Divine in our cultural terms.

In Gods Image and Likeness.  Image, not identical. You see your image in the mirror; we are in a manner of speaking, in Gods mirror. God has only Love for us, but has granted us autonomy.  We cannot conceive of God in any full, accurate or technical manner.  Books and all included.

We are not just mirrored reflections of a multidimensional Being. We are allowed to create, and in so doing, to engage Creation; to perform with Creation, or perhaps to also act against it by being in ignorance of It.  Ignorance and imagination become evil if extrapolated into behavioral formulas of cognition, perception and action.  And yet still—Love covers all.  When this happens to you, intentionally (if possible), out of the blue or at death, you can come to understand the poetry of Creation at hand.

So On The Subject Of Evangelical Rationalization And Atheistic Deception

Now I do not know what religious folks would think of my letter here so far, but I can and will speculate of their intentions, presumptions and validation, for they will not themselves.

Rigorous objectivity and critical analysis are not an option for many conservatives to soundly examine themselves.  At least this seems the evidence I see of their behavior and expression into the world.  They feel entitled to seek out converts and condemn the world beyond themselves as governed by Satan and or Liberalism, and all those other conservative orthodoxies that are not themselves.

The world has various conservative orthodoxies competing for; not just population market share, but world domination.  Unfortunately, these orthodoxies are not allowed to have an objective overview of themselves, for that would well imply change and acceptance of the unknown, unsettling their world and spiritual view.  Fear and insecurity will keep them in there (un)safe harbor of exclusion and denial.  This means evil will lurk as both fear and apparent wisdom.

Evangelical leaders, at the least, judge the world in God’s name, which is taking God’s name in vain. The book; I Don’t Have Enough FAITH to Be an ATHEIST, is an attempt at might makes right in a kind of logical sense.  The authors may well be well intentioned, but the false premised nature of so much of their proofs rationalizations wreaks of their own spiritual insecurity.  As with much evangelical thought, the initial presumption is often used as its own evidence, a kind of circular reasoning. The confidence of the argument depends upon the narrowness of the ideas parameters. That other interpretations of Being have value, is pretty much discarded for their own construct of reason and what there is for them in their narrowed confines of reason to wonder about.

Evangelicals require not just a leap of faith, but a contract in not acknowledging the ignorance of matters they claim self evident as being God’s.   First and foremost is that they know what the real Word of God is from the Bible as an infallible vehicle that have travelled for millenia.  There is no sound evidence for this, being that interpretations vary over what was said and who said what, with documents not going back to the actual time period. But many gospels were excluded from Christianity along the way.  The easy, or is it lazy, claims of faith and belief as their special compensation, betray all the evidencing and witnessing many “true believers” are seemingly compelled to offer as real proof of a real ideas manifestation, as the authors of the aforementioned book selectively manipulate.

Humans were adjusting the “Word of God” to words that the leaders manipulating the documents intended to proceed with.  Now we must assume politicians were infallible as well, but in the world of evangelicalism, any new interpretation is possible as long as their definition of the actual “Word of God” is said to be authentic.  Again, a human based interpretations for human based reasons.

Evangelicals are often putting words into Gods Mouth, so to speak.  Observe the sermons; some enlightening and at least one on TV eliciting prayers for God to get certain Supreme Court justices out of His way.  Before the 2008 presidential election in the US, I heard one preaching to God that He must not abandon His People.  Direct orders to The Divine, seeming to question if God knows what He is doing or allowing to be done. So the Bible says to ask in Jesus name, just like a magical spell to be cast over local creation, if an idea in the Bible can be extrapolated to sanction something one may desire—bingo!

Liberalism is receiving this kind of instruction to the faithful; get rid of it or else you are abandoning God, likely right now, as I type this on this Sunday morning.  The problem is as we have seen politically; the “faithful”, in denying their suspicion of ignorance, fear enough to follow instructions as lemmings at the cliff edge, “In the name of God”, or in the name of the executive.

‘They know not what they do’; whether they are really serving God, Country, or serving Evil, for they are not allowed to know the real difference from authorities presumably speaking in Gods Name. Who is telling them to study which aspects or biblical narration, or see the Bible which way for what reason?  We may wonder, for they are not allowed open critical thinking.  We expect an expert will do that for them.

We see much contempt for Creation as it is, from conservatives and religious and political orthodoxies.  Notice the good intentions of their claims, yet the hostility, judgement and condemnations flowing from their ideologies. They offer no true way right now for compassion, empathy, inclusion, solution. No means right now for unbridled, non ideological understanding.  No open door for Love to grow within and to flow out.

The God of Creation is being kept out for the false idol of ideology and intellectual reductionism being called faith and proof.

Evangelicalism; A recipe for preserving ignorance in God’s Name.

Arizona’s Beauty And Its Senatorial Incompetence

.


.

Arizona; a beautiful state full of beautiful people, but that says nothing about the patronizing right wing demagogues it passes off as its US senators.

I know of nothing these two dimmed down bulbs have done for Arizona, not all of Arizona. As most Republican leaders these days; under their tent grows their version of serving the conserved status elites, while trying to seduce we regular folks to their own one and only kind of view toward Life.  Their projections of fear and insecurity are tailor made for business interest to trump the average citizens.  We citizenry are put into our proper servile place; to stay in the molded mindset of a corporation based government paradigm.

Down with (public democracy) Government! = (Up with Private Dictatorships!)  Hide that last part in parenthesis.  Thanks.

Many a Democratic leader seems to have this same affliction; pandering to elite powers seductive addictions.  I’m not selling the Democrats as saints here.  This post is mostly about mind control tactics being used on populations kept essentially in the dark by a corporation slanted media that follows its own opportunistic calling. (Uh? But didn’t you mean to say a Liberal Mainstream Media?)

The public at large, especially in places like Arizona, are given their view from those getting the most from all the environments; social, economic, earth ecosystems etc, yet pawing off the responsibilities for maintenance, cost and upkeep to all. Wealthiness is socialized economic redistribution after all.  And wealth must be given its narratives of achievement and success, devoid of responsibilities and accountability to The Whole.  Cause what egomania fun is that! For this, the GOP and right wing propaganda machinery is designed for diversion, denial and obfuscation, all buttressed by platitudinal pabulum.

With myopic lenses inserted; why Arizona and America’s interest are all clear as a tax cut. Down with Government, that coincidentally in a Democracy defends us militarily and rights-wise from opportunist with other forms of power, unless they kill Democracy’s dimensional and directional value, and or take it over that is.

Arizona has unfortunately been sculpted to make the positive aspect Appearance Reality of wealth be its Consensus Reality mind-frame as well.  We The People, are to tag along behind the really important to my election people, bearing the brunt of all the negative sides of wealth and its consumption addictions.. Now with corporations being allowed to socialize their own “freedom” to influence Democracy at will, thanks to the ever incompetent conservatives on the Supreme Court, the mind cleaning for corporate conformity will proceed at a picked up pace.

Perceptions (right or wrong) of order in societies functioning, can erode away the rights of “We The People” while being chanted by the misdirected to that very phrase.  The Pharos would have been proud of todays conservatives achievements in skewing reality perception by linguistic trickery and other forms of sophistry necessary to have rationalization trump reason.  How?  Reason (demonstrable cause and effect) is made to be suspicious, while emotional cause and effect undeterred from fact checking is made to be obvious.  Enter Fox Newsiness and all the other right wing propaganda platforms where no full fact base or context need apply.

The Obama Omission Haunts Arizona’s Commons

With Obama taking away the sensible Governor for homeland security, we were left with the sycophants of  predatory wolves free to rule the hen house of the states residents common interest. A biased to hierarchical branded “Freedom” comes packaged with populist pabulum delivered all self righteously and entitled of course… We see all too often how scary John McCain appears, with his dizzy spiraling ideological “common sense”, as he regularly tries to be a spokesperson for the lobotomized right wing base he used to be sensibly leery of.

Now the name of the passion game is; that party virtue is to be as crazy-(accusatory without evidence or honest context–fear merchandising) and intellectually frozen in place as can be. Open minds in Arizona’s leadership? We don’t need open minds here, those are to be loathed.  Stuff just falls through open minds anyway, obviously.

Kyl has perfected his top down view of the publics interest to suit Arizona’s top place (winners) business folks needs.  All goodness and moral quality are known by viewing the self centered needs of wealth and power, as long as they do not help poor people who should be helping themselves after all.  Don’t they see how society works for those who have?  It’s Gods message to them apparently.  We should not interfere with God people.  What are you thinking!  I like how the “Eye Of The Needle” has been engineered to be the freeway to goods and services.  Faith and trust come in real handy as a mechanisms to cover over reality.

Serve those who reward you economically or what are you doing? It seems people of “substance” like to be “framed” grand style, by being told how they are the best there is, and can do no wrong unless caught at certain things. The chamber of commerce Golden Calf Chain is anchored around Republican heads and hearts while the rest of us should be quite, just be grateful for knowing our proper place.  This produces an economic cosmology that grinds down the idea that true and full public interest is the primary one in a Democracy.  We are losing it.

{Here is an article I just came across that reflects upon the state of conservatism.}

Why Conservatism is Disconnected From Reality | The Moderate Voice

.

Propagandist of the right, agitating for self separation anxiety in the public, and so dependency on power structures, such as the GOP does, various Rush Limbo’s, as well as most all of Fox News; portray how fear and loathing are to be ones actionable better angels. And of course! Bring this up to any of them and you will relativised existentially, likely be told that you are the one producing the dissonance, by suggesting one should fear them. Ha!  Caught me hypocrite!  This contrapuntal circular reasoning trick is a mainstay in conservative alleged debunking platforms, it “existentializes” any criticisms, seeming to produce an effect similar to a Thought-terminating cliché.

The fear and loathing, wrapped in pseudo scientific proof for science claims of likely facts, or psychological and social ones, get associated with their opposite side of the coin energy by claims of moral superiority.  Now a rabbit can come out of knitted cap; specially delivered with much smiling and wincing for confident Appearance Reality sake in the confirmation bias enabled Consensus Reality show.  No really!

Exhibit A; Fox newsiness entertainment shows.  It is all about manipulating and contorting how things seem, and not objectively how they are in full context or perspective.  Perception of cause and effect are highly truncated and convoluted. Here is where faith, trust, and party loyalties cover over the landscapes of ignorance with ideological certainty of purpose and rightful cause.  The faithful trust Fox to give them their fix.  This enables Evil (ignorance) to go right under their radars and into their policies.

We see all accusation from these conservatives, but no real answers, except to recite a business, or an alluded to certain kind of Christian model identity as The People’s. For the self defined religious conservatives, one religions imagined superior moral value currency is decreed as the only viable one in our nation, and ultimately the world.  No pluralism and diversity. No freedom, real democracy, nor liberty need apply.  This sort of a priori surety of foundational concepts, insulates unstable and dependent identities from the ambiguities and nuance at Life’s table.  –It is my way or the highway with you.  My God or my version of The Constitution are making me get you.

Suffering The Fools

Speaking of highways; I personally know if you come to Arizona from Mexico or New Mexico, better go to the bathroom there before coming into AZ, cause the rest stops are closed at their first stops on the Interstate here.  Budget cuts for beautiful AZ that somehow Texas And New Mexico seem to survive with intact.

This is what the Republicans, along with the hugely private funded “think tank” version of focus grouped dimmed down conservatism we have today, has done to Arizona.  Once brimming surpluses were eroded away by tax cuts for the wealthy.  You know; that whole strangle government from interfering with your personal income; the grander the income the more responsibility for the state and nation one seems to reject.  This is contempt for The Commons– the connectivity of Life in society and all other environments.  It requires philosophical mindsets of separation; of us and them, a compartmentalized and segregated consciousness, to explain how one is fundamentally better than another and intrinsically at odds with their interest.

What goes around comes around in the real world however; the greed–(self entitlement without acknowledging consequence) of the wealthy comes to curse the majority who made the wealthy wealthy.  Yes, like the economy, the wealthy redistribute the nations and states wealth to themselves, with society allegedly providing the winner narrative, as one envied by all.

This can transfer the wealthy’s skewed alienated perspective as one we each should desire and pursue.  Now the detached, and in some respects, deluded individual, finds “death taxes” and certain tax cuts as coming to them rightfully, when it is actually an issue for 1% or so of the population.  Better than smoke and mirrors, it is conservatism’s need to not check facts, to have contempt for them, unless they are cherry picked ones that suit their confirmation biased world view.

This is conservatism’s profound incompetence; its truncated spiritual and cosmological world view.  It preserves the conservatives fear and insecurity dependency based delusions of grandeur, while blaming those without for not being go getting, or good enough; The Commons be damned, or better yet, kept completely off the perceptual radars.  Pollution? Poverty? Vast common interest?  I just don’t see it! Get a job! Get a life!


Watch What I Pull Out Of The Liberals Hat!

These two senator guys, like most Republican leaders and their ideological string pullers, have to figure out how to sell the wealthiest interest as all our own.  Language must be commandeered, and it has been over the last several decades.  A word and idea such as taxes, or responsiblity for Freedoms maintenance in a Democratic nation; the way a Democracy addresses major issues affecting it, is reduced to an impingement on your right to have everything you can get and give back only what you decide–(actually, Representative government already is this by vote).

But from the demonization of concept campaign; the public interest; that Big Side of every citizen, is to be taken care of by nothing, as if we are actually detached from this world and Creation we live in, a delusion.  But by focusing on negative tag frames of reference, an ideological identity emerges as a kind of freedom loving “common sense” mandate prerogative I have; that government is best that non exist.  Oh. Its popular to say we need a military to protect our dumbed down concept of our “Vital National Interest”.  This is suicidal for a democratic republic, not to mention the connectivity of Life and its vast interplay of system dynamics integral to all our existence.

It, the consequences of ones actions beyond the self, will clean up automatically after my life and business somehow.  It is magical thinking after all!  I know of some conservatives (certainly not all) who resent recycling; must seem a bothersome, imposed new change, or a do-gooder suspicious conspiracy to make my life hard.  Fixing infrastructures is now–a big tax on your children!  But how else are common things done?  Your church or the company you own or work for going to do this for itself?  As I said; fear and insecurity grounded delusion’s of grandeur they want us all to bear for them.

This is how tax cuts can become a state and a nations deadening weight.  That Democracies with the highest tax rates are considered to be quantitatively and qualitatively most free, is against the individualist alone narrative being offered as the supposedly only one for the freedom loving citizen.  Even the libertarians hat can be stuffed with baloney instead of rabbits.

And Faith Makes Objectivity Irrelevant

The program to attach economic well being to Gods grace flowing upon you, is now well under way in America, sometimes called “Prosperity Christianity”, but it is actually materialism’s guise as Gods grace.  You are poor cause God is punishing you. Jesus had the loaves and fishes, not us.

Fear and insecurity are the leverage points for unstable identity’s who’s egos are “naturally” always seeking to be the bride for various absolutist mind-frames. The national (corporate now mixing with theocratic) narrative is filled with paying attention to stocks, and wondering what kind of Nirvana we all will pursue with all the money and morals we would have if liberals were not around.

This completely ignores the pyramidal and predatory nature of unregulated capitalism, as it has been allowed to disintegrate into a dominator mindset without Democracy’s thoughtful oversight.  With your money or your life as the “Life” paradigm, we are literally saying that human beings only deserve what they can afford.  That money is an abstract symbol actually detached from rules of true merit, honesty or achievement, is conveniently not to be considered.  The new God is Coin, or was that the old Golden Calf?

That is what is destroying a true national community of cause, and polluting the American Spirit.  That Spirit is reduced to, who gets the most income wins the most from life; achievement, heredity, hook or crook,– is now the one and only American Way.  I heard a Republican representative pontificating against the socialist nature of a healthcare system, (like an optional medicare), while then saying he stands for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

United States Declaration of Independence – Wikipedia, the free

that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

.

Notice Life comes first in this grand rights abstraction.  If it is as it is–your money or your life ( some 45,000 die each year from lack of adequate health-care), how then is Life the presiding unalienable right?  Is it really; Well. It’s what they would have said was the case, if you have enough money, you then can have Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit Of Happiness?  This is the kind of self retardation being created by fear and paranoia’s myopic identity framers, and not the USA’s Founding Fathers and Mothers.

In the name of Freedom, Liberty and, Death To Taxes!, America is being undone by deluded intention.  They will end US up in the Singapore model of economic prosperity, the same one China is idealizing; no criticism of the economy or the cultural narrative, then money’s Golden Light will shine its graces upon thee.  Know thy place my child. There be free.

No!  It’s You! Na, Na, Na, Na, Na.

Conservatives make a seemingly unavoidable perceptual error; the fallacy that liberals are themselves as dogmatic as they themselves are.  The colored lens of absolutism produced this fallacy for conservatives; that liberals are not self correcting.  Liberalism is by its very nature, a self correcting theoretical framework, where “higher truth” is allowed to win out if it produces a superior objective logical case.

This does not mean that liberals “know” they are right as conservatives do.  Liberals and conservatives are likely nearly equal in their actual lives regarding fact and fiction.  Liberals, or that open nature toward Life that all humans have somewhere within themselves, adapt to changing situations, instead of insisting that situations cannot or should not change.  As it is; Life does intrude on the best laid plans and beliefs.

There Are Diverse interest With A Varying Places On The Continuum Of Connection And Responsiblity: This Is The Way Of Life And Of Democracy.

A Way that is actually abstract and emotionally detached from all things, except those supporting the economic paradigm which controls its own self affirming philosophical tenets, is a scheme.  You can get angry, get greedy, or lust for the “good life”, then “succeed” mightily.  The more you make seeming to define the more you wish not to contribute back to the actual systems you are taxing by your success.  Magically, society and other environments take care of themselves somehow.  Not my problem!  Make a liberal angry; succeed and be happy!

Yet that paradigm says you are a success; the income proves it!  You are no longer a loser but an achiever; one being responsible for oneself.  You were kept down by liberalism’s lack of expectation and provision of entitlement.  Now you are a self made success, having overcome liberalism’s depression of your spirit.  However, in this new success schemes self fulfilling prophesy, you are also set up not to see where everyone else really is if you could ever achieve such an awareness.

You do not see nor likely no longer accept the dissonant reality, that some are not every actually in your position for a rebirth into a self reaffirming material mindset.  Some do not have the ability or the emotional makeup that you do.   Some may not be spiritually aware as you are, and depriving them of basic life ingredients may well only make your “tough love’ a formula for an others death sentence.  You may now believe that the physical can force moral value enlightenment, but it may well end up defining materialism as the worshiped goal, and materialism detest critical awareness of its spiritual impacts.  Yet “value” and “moral” votes think they can force goodness into people by preventing them from doing things by force.

Conservatives Without Conscience: Christians and Earthly Authority

Aug 2, 2006 I’ve just finished reading John Dean’s new book, Conservatives Without Conscience, and have found much fuel there for examining conservative

Leaders Without A Conscience Of The Real

Herein is the ground to manifest the mental and spiritual illness affecting much of conservatism today:  Responsibility and accountability to a Whole system, can seem to conservatives to be an unjust imposition upon their own particular amputated conceptions of freedom and individual self realization.  They fall under the spell of alienation and its attendant fear and insecurity; seeming to constantly complain about the weaknesses “out there” in the world.  They see others as lacking in their own self confirmed bias and faith in a system designed to exploit individuals and environments while being itself psychologically backed up to adding brick and mortar to a wall of denial toward The Commons, or if you will; Creation.

This mindset intentionally will ignore corporate, as well as all of our, responsiblity to the vast Commons—all that connects the relationships of the life we each possess.  Instead, the idea is to turn the table in the temple over, expelling God, or if you do not accept that God is a reality; all the integral associations of Life in Creation that we are all immersed in together; the air, the earth and so very much more.

Instead, they leave only vendors selling the necessities of a parted out Creation, where money is the determinate whether you literally live or die.  Your survival value is–how much you have.  Some see this worshiping of materialism as the grace of God being bestowed upon them–how convenient a rationalization. Not unlike the one humankind has been burdened with for ages– the haves validating themselves while distancing themselves from the have-nots’.  The cultural scheme rewarding with circular logic; the design of the scheme professed as destiny.

It is emotional and spiritual voodoo made to seem like Divine Respect and Sanction.  The unbridled exploitation mindset has the same functionality as cancer; it will destroy its commons (the individual’s body of cells interconnected in this case) while consuming all it has to survive eternally. Today’s materialism actually denies spiritual realities, and can so claim to not be destroying anything—Why.  Do you think I would destroy this planet where my family lives!  You are crazy!  I just don’t accept the science. there’s just to many unanswered questions… etc.

Ways To Control What Is Left Of Democracy

The intentionally designed, lobotomized right wing requires thought control to keep the vast and varying interest of life on earth, including its people, unawares of manipulation of self identity scripts and narratives. Instead we get purity test for conservative “credentials”.  This is how fascism is made from Democracy; eliminate church and state boundaries, eliminate state and corporate boundaries, eliminate abstraction and reality boundaries, then control the detached individuals fear and imagination parameters.

Now people can be organized and manipulated by providing them with fear and insecurity projections toward what you wish.  Right wing think tanks spend good money on figuring out how to say things to you so that you will think like they do.  This is best done through faith venues; such as church and business economic interest click’s. Otherwise; stress in the population is to be tagged to liberal ideas and diverted from conservative ones–the ones that provide thought control automatically.

.

Consider those who say we all must contribute a fair share to maintaining the health of this earth and its inhabitants–these must be portrayed as taking from your now castrated view of the self identity and awareness of realities principles of union.  A wealthy person may use this earth a million times more than I do, yet essentially only want to give back what I do; Why that is only fair!  Cut (my) taxes!

The detached individual can easily feel that taxes take from them and give to others.  It is a “No Brainer”.  It is no stretch for an imagination devoid of the deep connection in the realities of Being.  These folks are actually slaves to a profit–(corporate/individual levied tax) which is separation centered and not interested in maintaining the health and wellbeing of The Commons.  It is instead; interested in maintaining the separated individuals ego as an achiever or winner of goods and services that no one has any business minding themselves about–(cancer to The Commons).

They (conservatives in general and the right wing especially) must ignore and deny or reject their accountability to The Commons, except in abstract cognitive dissonance avoiding generalizations.  And this is what we are left with; people who must deny science and those interested in the health of the whole society or the whole planet.  They will cherry pick facts, usually calling them the real truth!, often needing only one to “prove” their own confirmation bias, with a shame and blame narrative for those liberals, (to assist in the cognitive dissonance mitigation of those with truncated identities).  They are then left with the passion that besets Appearance Reality designer facts that prop up the emotive narrative for the Rights Consensus Realities frames.

The likes of Arizona’s two “conservative” senator ideologues, one somewhat coherent and the other maverickly mixed up, these are wed to a truncated world perspective; including the mind, heart and soul contamination of fantasy that goes along with it.  They seem detached to their worlds of isolated consciousness, where the value and moral ethos to life here in Arizona and the USA is; Your money or your life;  Your money is your value; Your money is your worth. Your money depicts you moral and ethical worth. Your money decides your life; your health care, your food, your shelter. Your money defines whether you live or die.

This is why the Dry-rot Of Civilization Is Conservatism; for in the mistaken attempt to conserve a one way thought pattern, it actually cuts off the fully integral nature of Being, of Existence, claiming there is nothing new nor nothing real of value outside its singular cosmological and or spiritual perspective.

The blood of Life becoming stagnant.  The fungus of fear and insecurity nesting throughout perspective and cognition, leading to heart hardening, while blood is reduce to thought. This problem made of itself to its life, now taken out on others, unable to address how they themselves were seduced to the position that they know it all, and need not hear you or I.

And so we have the hate and fear mongers of this day; They are serving the life of the fungus and not of the Spirit.

From Arizona With Love

How Reality Fools Us ; Mind Manipulation By Appearance

Things May Not Be As They Appear Or How We Represent Them.

This makes critical thinking, critical to understanding reality, or else face being manipulated by illusion given as truth, and not knowing it.

{I Googled Appearance Reality but found the boat missed the launch; much appearance vs reality and the distinction between appearance and reality.  My usage is as a concept itself; Appearance Reality— the object sought out by argument, debate, and most implied persuasion such as propaganda; to make reality appear to be the way one intends.  Appearance Reality may be inert, an off the cuff assumption–the heavens circle the earth, or for some reason, designed.

The intent of Appearance Reality manipulation, is to make a thing appear or seem to be true, while its actual truthfulness may be in question. This is metaphysical manipulation,  for ideas, theories, opinions etc, are not physical entities like rocks or spoons, invisible consciousness is involved in the evaluations.

How things appear to be real may be incidental; something of observation and ones history and reference to the thing, with the actuality of the perception being uncertain in dimension. The metaphysical idea of a spoon can be made into an actual real thing, moving from an abstract idea to a real manifestation of a concept. What appears to be real as we look into our world can be any combination of fact, idea, imposition, assumption and other suppositional identifications.  There are questions to be had in anyone’s view of the world, including of people, places, things and events.  Appearance Reality appears to be true, yet has many problematic interfaces with what is actually real.

How things appear for human perception and cognition can also be engineered via the voids in knowing and comprehension, to seem one way while the possiblity of actually being another way is supressed. I could know that you were walking down a step and slipped on a banana peel you did not see, but I could say that this proves you are uncoordinated, perhaps adding weight to an idea I have of you that you are clumsy, so I advance “proof”, genuine or not, for the Appearance Reality of my theory.  I am then seeking a Consensus Reality between us; a kind of confidence that things are a certain way really.

This is Appearance Reality manipulation; the sculpting of worldly data to suit my intention, a kind of “art” pretending to be science.  Politics and religion, along with most inherently metaphysical systems, contour perception to suit ideas, and not necessarily to investigate any actual truth with anything approaching rigorous emotional and intellectual honesty.

Consensus Reality is well presented as an idea on the WEB, although opinion of its validity seems to crepe into the equation, speculating upon those who use the term Consensus Reality.  In my view, these two phenomenon often go hand in glove, so I will present my expanded musing definition of the phenomenon Appearance Reality here, and how it can become engineered by others perhaps unknown intentions.}

Use Of  Appearance Reality

=

How you  see the world is an Appearance Reality; The world appears real empirically, but this does not convey wisdom or truthful relationships, necessarily, about the actual reality. We are on epistemological ground here, deciding what we can know of the world, and what human minds may be entitled to presume they understand of cosmological and spiritual presence in existence.

The truth of a thing is not absolutely known by just looking at it, or how it appears.  We may “know it enough” for our intention, but that does not convey omniscience. Knowledge and understanding usually require both an investigation of a things connections to the world, its immersion in the matrices of Being, and differing viewpoints as to the real nature of its manifestation to arrive at a sound logical view with a higher likelihood of truthfulness .

The apparent reality of the sun revolving around the earth, is not made into an actual reality because we all consent to the observational “truth” of the phenomenon.  We find that investigation of the world, and the incorporation of theoretical notions of gravity and celestial mechanics, reveals that the earth revolves each day as it circles the sun.  Ones perspective is where the apparently real world succumbs to empirical error. Real reality is not automatically what we think it is by appearances.  This opens a Pandora’s Box of manipulative potential.

We may fill the void in sound knowing, our ignorance, with explanation and rationalization that contour apparent comprehension into a nicely framed logical narrative. We have not intended our logic to be wrong or missing in factual data and correlation, but we may defend our perception from other explanations that seem absurd or oppositional to our own on the surface. Not knowing, or perhaps not wishing to understand that these other ideas or explanations may be more correct.

Emotional Issues With Reality

Most human beings may like to think that we are right (I raised my hand), wishing to avoid the stresses of cognitive dissonance and the problematic nature of being wrong.  But it seems also as true that we wish not to be proved wrong; the more insecure in our cosmological and spiritual identities we are, the more inherently uncertain we are of ourselves and Creation.  This self uncertainty seems to manifest a likelihood of stronger feelings that insist we are right and others wrong.  We seem angry of agitated over our own ignorance and our seeming need to deny it by insisting we are right or righteous.  To unload our burdens, we may projectet them outward; to others and the world.

The prosecution of our uncertainties is “taken out” on the outside world, be it people or situations and environments.  If taken internally, we tend to find depression.  This blame others approach appears to be a coping mechanism for keeping a purposeful “positive” identity, while not possessing the tools to find reality clearly.  Many of the conflicts and uncertainties of humanity occur because of this loss into the subjective with no unifying objective connection to relationship and inter-connectivity by a persons perceptual mind frames.

But I Find Proof For How I Think; It’s Obvious!

Appearance Reality, like Consensus Reality, tends to acquire a need for Confirmation Bias; we tend to conserve and confirm what seems true, over what seems abstract or contrary as ideas and statistics can be.  Argument, debate, and other attempts at persuasion (even such as this here), load ideas as if a sort of magnetism were attracting and repelling information.  Most of us wish to avoid ever-present existential investigation; we tend to not intend to question our every thought, move and interpretation.  We usually consider ourselves right, or perhaps not wrong but misunderstood. We trust how things seem to us; how they appear to be, as if they were both known and absolute truths, when they may not be by any objective sense.

This too is Appearance Reality as designer perceptual cognition.  Cults, cultures, and at times our life associates, friends and partners do what we do; attempt to define reality by narrations as to how it appears to us to be.  Our culture, family, friends and peers drive us to see things from a certain angle, and not by antoher.  The rightness and wrongness of the conclusions may be unexamined at their foundations; we are up on the rooftop fixing shingles.

We tend to defer to our emotions when intellectual argument seems lacking in defining what we mean.  For many of us, we do not intend to always prove ourselves possibly wrong, and fully acknowledge another’s ideas or point of view.  Differing Appearance Realities can and often do result in conflict, for there is no common grounds for agreement, and possibly not even for verifying data and context in any fair or objective manner.  Opposites of reality perception can then “prove” themselves right by the others obvious error or bad intention.

In this case, the idea that we are open minded, or following the signpost to higher truth and understanding are likely a sham.  We are worshiping our ignorance in this case, and many of us are quite proud to put what we do not know on a pedestal, then defend it with our lives.  Insecurities over reality perception and comprehension are so sensitive to our identities, that we will at times stand by our ignorance as if it were, and some times is, in the name of God.

Tricks In The Perceptual Reality Trading

One person may say that the tide seems to be caused by the moon and sun positions.  They could use this apparent truth to “prove” that the celestial sphere, the sky and all in it, circles the earth, its evidence being the tide’s obvious correlation to the apparent heavenly movement.  they would have “common sense” observation on their side.  This seemed good enough for perhaps 99% of human history.  Another may argue that how things appear may not be the case; yes the tides correlate to moon and sun position, but one is circling the earth while the earth is circling the other.

This complication of theory use and its demands upon comprehension, can become a damnation of perception; suddenly we are required to think deeply over our belief.  If this inquiry is not approved of somehow, by peer pressure of other social sanction, we may damn the messenger or that originating  the contrary information. It might be easier and more convenient to call that those “making things complicated” are up to something. maybe they are “intellectual elites”?

What we do not know, can and does lay the pathway groundwork for fear and paranoia.  Those who “choose” not to review the real evidence and patterns of correlation data fields available, can deny the real truth and insist that the apparent, and perhaps once or still present consensus “truth” is the real truth.  This is a form of the curse that is “natural” to conservatism.  Conservatism systematically denies questioning, thus inhibiting or otherwise controlling what is left of critical thinking.

We may find that when we insist our beliefs are the “real truth”, and not just seemingly apparent, emotion (likely steeped in rationalization) will tend to stand in for reason.  At this stage of cognition, rationalization can be perceived as true reason; the weight of emotion intends to load the argument.  In this subjective state, my point of view can be declared the honest truth to me, and opposing views false, misleading, deceptive, and so, deserving to be purged.

Conservatism, then, blurres what reality is by sanctioning its own rationalization as a kind of a priori truth, and then casting intellectual honesty, by likely employing emotional tagging deep inquiry with pre established blame or shame narrations, as being deceptive or dishonest.  Consensus and Appearance Realities are then designed to keep perceptions corralled and framed into the conservative narrative.

Check most conservative propagation platforms to see how this automatic indoctrination occurs to make reality appear to be as they wish.  They seek out those with certain cosmological and spiritual crisis, then provide them with designer answers that foster an ideological campaign to benefit those who are rewarded by conservative manipulations of social and physical environments.

Cognitive Dissidence, then, can become a player in both Appearance Reality matrices, and those of Consensus Realities.  With its involvement with designer Confirmation Bias mandates, we enter the sphere of kinds of self deception made to look or seem good and true.  Just as we may manuever truths or facts to suit our life; groups and associations of humankind will use this leverage over actual reality to create the impression of Appearance Realities to be Truth.

Making Reality Into A Kind Of Deception

This carries with it a persistent and unresolvable problem; incorporating false truths into human behaviors will likely result in false behaviors and perception which may well lead to conflicts of an intractable nature, since the ways of truthfulness itself have been attacked.  For conserved Confirmation Bias installed by Consensus Reality narratives providing “Truth” of Appearance Reality evidence, conservatism often seals the doorways to higher knowing.  Openness to the worlds, ways, and evidence of others regarding the world and existence, are rendered virtually irrelevant or hostile. The proof of the external and internal dissonance in society can then be circled back to prove the conservative perception narrative; that its good is being attacked by what is bad.  Appearance Reality can become a near permanent trap for the soul.

Appearance Reality; some things we trust may in fact be misleading from the fraud in their conceptualization and representation.
