IT IS NOT BEHAVIOR, BUT POLICY THAT MATTERS

I am sorry to see the WordPress.com page come up with slanted post.  I am not surprised that those who have not been through the great social movements can be so superficial and naive about politics.

OK.  If they are not naive, they are taking part in the great deception of our times, this comparing of politicians by how they act, and not what they and their parties policies actually do.  One can be any age to play this ad-hominem connection game.  Oh, a candidate did that!  Oooh, did you see what he did not do!?  Blah, blah, blah.  Whether consciously or not, this he said she said politics is all about diverting attention from deep policy patterns that do matter to all of us and the world. Classic bait and switch.

Today’s post on WordPress I am referring to, said Obama did not go to see injured vets in Germany or something to that effect.  While everyone should know that the Dems. have been consistently lobbying for more help for vets, while the right wing talk’s support the troops from one side of its tongue, while it cuts benefits compared to Dems. from the other.

Indeed, it even suggest that someone, let’s say “hot headed” such as McCain, or forgetful as same, would be scary in these modern times of WMD.

Wait.  That one actually made sense.

WOMAN! HEAR ME RUN. I MEAN ROAR.

Oh girl!

or

You go girl?

VOTE YOUR SEX OR DIE?

Today it made the news. On a cable news show, a female reporter mentioned that she was told that the women coming out for Obama can expect to not be supported by womens groups next time they need it. The reporter said she said, or wondered to herself; Really? Is that really true?

It is a stunning question. One that in a way goes to the very heart of democracy and prejudice.

Anyone who votes their personal hereditary bias, instead of qualifications, or vision, or ability to inspire, or who seems to know how the world works rightly from wrongly, anyone who decides by personal identity bias instead, is a fool at best.

I cannot imagine as a man, only voting for men because they are like me, and women some kind of mystery beyond understanding. Men are responsible for most of the destruction and misery on earth on a large scale.

Having said that; I am not a fool to vote for the first most viable woman to come along, especially when she may seem a bit like the Jekyll and Hyde conservatives in her tactics. Margaret Thatcher was not an automatic improvement. But to then try to blackmail others if they do not support your bias, no matter what kind it is, is anti-democratic to the very root. That is democratic as in Democracy.

ANYTHING GOES IN LOVE AND WAR AND, YEAH, I FORGOT, POLITICS

The form of bias bribery, by force of support, may seem legitimate to manipulators trying to rig the system to their own interest, but it is a dominator paradigm just the same. Diving the nation by type casting may seem appealing to those who have felt themselves disenfranchised, but to do that by the means of manipulation is an overt deception.

Do we recognize the historical situation we are in? Are we seeking the best for all the people in our decisions, or just my cause? If it is the latter, I expect democracy to continue to atrophy until it is a mere figment of history.

VIOLENCE AND SELF CONTROL

Being involved with family violence control puts me in an odd situation.

I have avoided physical fighting my whole life. Childhood became the most significant influence on this. My father had told me, and I took it as holy law, that you as a guy, do not strike women. I cannot say that my older sisters and I did not have shoving matches, but for me that would have been self defense. Our family dynamics was heavy on the mental sparing which can seem actually more devastating.

The physical violence in our house was later done, after my mothers death, by a step mother-guardian. She would not hesitate to hit, throw objects and threaten with knives. She sent my father to the hospital with a big gash across his forehead. I slept with the largest kitchen knife under my pillow as a self defense plan for a knife attack while I was asleep. She had hit me in the face while I was asleep, then locked me out in the snow in my pajamas. My father committed suicide not long after that.

Earlier I had incidences when someone seemed to be threatening my life as a freshman high school. I was literally about 100 lbs. and someone morbidly obese around 500 lbs, held me under water to near drowning during pool time in a crowded pool. He had done this more than once. It became so serious to me (swallowing-inhaling watter) that I thought I would have to take matters into my own hands. One more time, and I was going to put him in a headlock with my legs around his neck and hold him under until it meant something. I was a totally inhibited kid and did not trust authority to do anything but blame the victim. So I had to weigh in my mind, possibly causing someones death and being called and treated as a murderer.

As it turned out, he never did that again. But I was sure it would have been me to blame and I would have felt I had no options in my own self defense. No one seemed to notice him doing this during the pool commotion, so I believed no one would accept my story. It just never came through to experience. In physical confrontations during boyhood, I found I had to keep the potential for rage out of me, especially since I had no doubt that I would take down someone twice my size. It took someone quite a bit larger and older to overcome me. I was afraid of my rage and how if unleashed it would seem out of my control.

(As evidence that I am not just delusional about this strength proclamation. When it rained a lot during physical education, outdoor activities were called off and we were put into the gym, we freshmen and the sophomores, to have a thing called “bombardment”. This is where there are two sides chosen, a line across the middle of the gym, where the two sides throw rubber balls a little smaller than a soccer ball at each other. Out of about 150 students divided in two, little me was one of the last picked, last or second to last.

Well the first game I discovered that being in the lower 10% in size had me a bit afraid, so I hung back as many did. All it took was the guy next to you ducking and a ball out of nowhere taking you out, while leaving a big red mark somewhere. I decided to risk all and take it to the line next game.

You could see most of what was being thrown up front. I found out I could catch any-ones ball thrown at me, but no-one could hold onto mine. I was also very accurate. I won that game. The last guy standing. I was picked second of all players next game. The team first picking, picked his seeming best friend first, so I was first on the other team picked. The next game was the last. It oddly ended up being me the last standing on my team, and a very out of shape guy hiding and dodging in the corner on the other side when the period ran out. I could no longer throw fast enough to eliminate time for him to move. That is how little old me was as a skinny five feet two.)

TRUTH VS ADVICE

What I just said I cannot say to someone involved in family violence. As far as physical violence goes, I do not hit women. I have told ones who gave me any actual physical provocation that, “If you do that again, we are over!” I do not tolerate fighting, especially in the home relationships. I try to avoid physical confrontations with anyone. Now that I am a “senior citizen” I find you are not seen as a threat overall, or there is a kind of automatic respect. Most of that sense of being on guard is much diminished now. I take peace as my way and it path is most often open.

I have found that emotional abuse has prove a bit more difficult to not take part in, compared to a sense of law that one just never does such a thing. I grew up that way, making fun of someones mistake or being ridiculed. It is then a model of behavior I have had to contain and reverse. To do that requires a will and an understanding of the Golden Rule or Categorical Imperative. I need to establish the sense that not only does “what goes around comes around.”, but it is already damaging my life. Abusing others in any way is profoundly self abuse.

I need to see (learn to recognize) when I am treating another like I would not wish to be treated, and immediately review what my self respect or control problem really is. We are often given the information from another that we are on some kind of attack and they becoming defensive, or initiating their own retaliations.

Still, when expressing guidance to someone, it will often fall flat if it is preached or describes as something I am so above, and can’t understand how someone could do such a thing. That fits as a key with very few dysfunctional programs. I have to speak out of and through my own life, the love in your heart has to be in it, to be a gift expected to have a chance at being received.

PROGRESSIVE OR REACTIONARY

In some ways I have described political tactics and ways of manipulation. All manipulation is in some way an abuse of the truth. Its vibrational disturbance will not go unnoticed, except perhaps, by like minded dysfunction. The same situations and rationalizations that come to effect home life are used in the greater life of our world. Even if everyone does it, doesn’t make it right.

We will find manipulative arguments covered if various guises meant to hide their intention, and instead, be represented as your own interest. Fear and insecurity are great hiding places for manipulative interest. Optimistic vision can also be used as a trick to catch someones interest, then later prove to have been a ruse. We need to be both critically minded on the one hand, and have our heart held out open in the other. True adults can do this.

The upcoming election seems to be being based on fear and insecurity vs. hope and optimism, both of these being held as paramount in differing ways by the candidates. I am not saying that we are not justified in having these inclinations. What I am encouraging is the “true believers” and the doubtful to have their wits about them. As citizens and voters, it is up to us to determine the fact from fiction, the hidden agendas from the promises of safety and security. For power will seek to inject its corruptions into all areas of life if let be.

We each are freedom, love, and truths best and last hopes. Better to stand with understanding under their tall light, than the ignorance that festers in the shadows of misunderstanding.

CULTURAL WARFARE

OPEN HUNTING SEASON; CULTURAL WARFARE

The line in the sand has been drawn. It crosses the Potomac, the 49th parallel, stretching from sea to shining sea. Between the two great oceans is the even greater divide; the cultural grand canyon.

Or so some would have you and I believe, we must be red or blue with no white in-between. But how has this nation of “We the People” become the nation of us against them?

Some might say the south has finally won the civil war, the war of succession, and we are now witnessing the wedged-off amputations of the one nation, the one government, in favor of feudal warlord domains. Still others see new aristocracies overcoming democracy with policies favoring inevitable global corporate hegemony. Where we begin to sculpt our lives with product or thing associations. What is more important to us is what brand of car we own, our brand of watch, brand of God, oven, or income level that allows the upgrades to occur.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news to the cultural war mongers during this campaign season, but in most respects, them is us. The conservative tendency to suppress humanity so others can be treated totally like we would not ever wish ourselves to be treated, is a tendency we must all interact with within ourselves. And the liberal tendency to want all faults to be forgiven that can be traced, by understanding, to the force of outside cause, is a generous tendency we may tend to give mostly to ourselves and perhaps not extend to others, especially acting conservatives.

If, as I contend, this great cultural divide actually is in the deepest most honest sense of individual truth, stretching our one foot on the red and the other on the blue, the cultural war that is festering across the nation is a false front designed to tear the individual into halves, deconstructing the noble self, the self of our better angels, into an angry and arrogant self lost from fuller comprehension of itself, searching aimlessly in the mirrored ideology of identity attachments, blaming the “other side” for perhaps subconsciously holding the missing self hostage.

Crazy huh?

I have lost count of the unaccountability of self professed conservatives being found out as being pedophiles, predators and or misleaders of some nature. I have lost count of the number of liberals who seem to have no particular guide as to what they believe in except that they know conservatives to be wrong, or enjoy some unbridled liberties.

But basically, both of my pigeonholed concepts of liberal and conservative are incomplete, for every human being applies both tendencies daily to live their lives. It is the nature of the polarizer that must be examined; why do some surely wish to divide up the “We the People” in the national collective mindset? Who is pursuing this divide and conquer strategy and to what ends? I will leave that speculation for now, since it would easily delve into areas of belief where facts themselves have been rendered questionable to anyone’s interpretation. When I am kept unknowing of something, how can I truthfully asses its effects, or even its existence necessarily?

OF THE BETTER HALF’S

Of this speculation, I am quite confident of its existence, though the details may be completely of a differing narrative of individuals, times and place.

Today, somewhere, there will be a child who gives thanks that their parent took them aside and showed they cared enough to lay down trustworthy directions to live by. Finally, finally! It will seem as if someone surely does intend the best for them by being a guide to the ways of life they are blinded to by youth and inexperience.

In another place an infant will have their emotional umbilical cord cut. Parents will allow the child to discover their own self regulation by weaning them from repetitive loop reinforced insecurity, proving they have a safe place to begin to satisfy their own needs. From this position of respect for the parents own emotional well being, the nights of a baby crying will stop, the raw nerves of the parents will be soothed, their relationship repaired. Now the infant, unable to speak, will wake in the night, reach out to pull the covers back on, succeeding at something she was not allowed to know she could accomplish before except by complaining. Even infants can learn what they can do when allowed to in a protective and supportive way.

And then in another place, an old conservative white guy will have an accident in the wrong neighborhood on an icy night. What looks like a thug will run over to the car, pull him and his granddaughter away from the car. Remove his own coat to cover the child, and call 9-11 on the cell phone.

The befuddled white man will be blind sided, (by his new-found other half) dropping to his knees. His own shame will be consumed before himself. His eyes will light up with fire and water, his heart seeming to grow a new, or is that a missing chamber? He will wonder in the falling snow, what else has he been wrong about? What other assumptions of mass misunderstandings does he hold as truth, that this once assumed looser is now a saving angel of grace? Suddenly the whole world seems new and beautiful to him, especially that stranger who now seems a most vital part of him.

These things will also occur in their quite places, away from the limelight. They will not be discussed on ideological talk-news propaganda shows filled with their crosses and spikes and crowns of thorns. Yet every moment this season, in the seemingly random chaos of kindness, a higher order of union will come to be.

44″They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45″He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

CULTS, CREEDS, AND CONSENSUS REALITY

CULTS, CREEDS, AND CONSENSUS REALITY

Amazingly, I (we?) have not even known I was taking sides in things that were, as far as reality perception is concerned, problematic. I tended to have no idea that I was party to a conflict over interpretation, that I in effect inherited. If I do not truth check my “reality view” sources. I can be as wrong about things as the spell checker often notes.

Do I know why I side with the interest I do? Did dad harangue the opposite view, saturating me with it when I was too young to know; it was opinion backed by emotionalized association, and not the whole truth?

This is why we are to seek objective review of our environments; to not be led down paths of opinion we observe and assume are true. That is if we seek truth above misrepresentation in order to have an honest life.

What we call special interest have special reasons to limit our base of consideration. This is a natural self preservation strategy that places itself and those who identify with the sculpted consensus reality, beyond the scope of whole truth. Yet in their unaddmitted limitations, they are as sure of certainty as rain.

RAIN ON ME

We have an unprecedented opportunity to see blind bias in action, especially of political and religious ramblings, on the Web. With a certain anonymity, beliefs emerge that were usually taboo, particularly in the workplace, in order that work get done and employees and employers get home in one piece. Here I can put my pedantic or fallacious viewpoints and ignore reaction if I so chose. Safe, but how useful is it to preach to an assumed choir, while I just hear myself think in circles? Yet we face the made up closed mind if we seek contention with our opposites, where even if our facts are true and in a well placed and meaning context; they can be spit back at us as vile.

Speaking of circular reasoning as an essential ingredient of cult-think.

Most human debate is over, not what we do know, but what we suspect or presume of others, because of what they do or do not seem to let in to their misjudgements of the issues. We presume conflict over the implications of implied willful ignorance, it, seeming as misfeasance.

SAY WHAT?

A kind of nominalism takes hold in the language of “buzz” words or phrases, which proclaim a reality of their own by mere redefined consensus of opinion, from why knows where? Who needs to tie reality with its uncertain (at times unknowable) facts, when words shaping ideas can take on a tidy unchecked round world of their own. “You liberals”, is now a classic (says it all!) around the world in eleven letters.

My experience in a religious cult, demonstrated, at first shockingly so, how words are appropriated and given new, often private to the select group, connotations or whole definitions. (Most religions begin as a cult of someones or things character traits.) These tend to tightly control thought to a conserved overriding assumption. Adjusted at times by hierarchy if allowed, or stealthily by reinterpretation. Even behaviors and manners begin to show mimicry; all smiley faces for example, not that there is something wrong with real smiles.

To become a seeming true follow or believer then, applying these words and their associate concepts often serves to indoctrinate one into an altered world view, and much peer praise and bonding to the greater cause. These are what are blown across the world in their tidy bubbles of sealed off belief. In those bubbles, truth is fixed, words mean one thing, and we know who the other is.

CHANGING WORD MEANINGS ALTERS COMPREHENSION OF REALITY

It comes to be seen, that from that newly identified unenlightened force now presumably lurking in the larger culture, you begin to notice how shallow or even wrong their idea of the word and world is. I can then come to assume others have some lack of perception, or are blocked from knowing, yes, the truth! The Web as well as the highly biased “news” shows present much ad hominem belief as fact to their already biased in that direction audience. Who needs fact checking.

What I do not know can hurt me. Being naive about methods of mind manipulation is of benefit to many interest in the culture. If I am dumping used motor oil into a river as part of a business, I do not go around saying that part of the truth. I would tend to go around saying how important and responsible it is for you to have your oil changed. How important is is to you and your family to keep your car running as best as it can be for your own safety. We are trying to protect your car and family, definitely good guys. We drink water too you know.

Probably, I don’t wish to hear about the water issue. Might even get mad if someone brought it up, or look for some way to indite the issue itself, usually damning the messenger. (Commies trying to stop me from making a living, or liberal do gooders, why don’t they get a job instead of criticize. Move if you don’t like the water.)

WE HAVE TWO HANDS

We humans tend to be liberal about our own misgivings (giving them much sway room), and then, possibly because another points a finger at us, tighten our distrust of another even more so, becoming reactionary and antagonized about the misgivings of others about us. Those who brought into light something seeming to reflect ill on me, do seem to be attacking my self esteem. Some call this mirroring back; projection. A kind of self delusional exorcism, putting that devil into someone else, at least in our own minds certainty. Cognitive dissonance relieved.

{Now, this whole post is related to a buzz worded diatribes bubble I just read in my tags. (I have just created bubble as a potential buzz word. Oh, I think it already is one.) What I will call snickering about the “liberal media” (one companies) laid off workers could get a job on Hugo Chavez team. An understandable insult from one who understands blowing bubbles more than what moves in actual reality.}

WHAT IS FAIR ABOUT WHAT IS NOT WITH THE LEFT AND RIGHT?

The “left” of the political spectrum has been known by its mutual mistrust of other allegedly left groups not as interested in their issue as they would hope. Uniting organizations to coalesce into a united movement has been stymied by the lefts own, dominant in mind, individualistic pet issue dominance (my opinion). That is probably good and bad in some ways. The left tends to be made up of individuals who have a direct connection to the issue they raise, hence often volunteering their time and money to their cause. A thousand points of light may be at times more effective than a big out of control bonfire.

It seems to me that the right, though equally filled with mistrust, became united against their proclaimed common liberal enemy, that did seem to be everywhere; Government was trying to stop you from poisoning the common waters. Government was trying to help the sick and unfortunate by birth, bad decision or design. All this “interference” had to be labeled a poison itself, “The Welfare State.” Generalized welfare is to be bad. Makes for a weak nation. Now we can feel great about attacking that demon “Big Government”, that is out to ruin our nation.

A kind of contempt for actions on the part of the whole (except fear based ones) seems to have been transformed into a good, as if problems of large scale economic or other environmental and systemic origins are to be ignored. UNLESS THEY PARTICULARLY IMPACT A CONSERVATIVE OR CORPORATE INTEREST. Then they are called vital to our survival.

You want to survive don’t you? Money and propaganda pours in to affirm the poisonous nature of “tax and spend”. That apparently gleeful liberal mindset meant to bleed you dry. Oh, they have us in a good enough bind mentally and emotionally to divert our attention! And always around fear first, glowing abstractions to come, once liberalism is put down for good.

It seems some on the right are wiling to burn any liberal legacy of our nations previous hero’s sacrifice, as Bush said; “the Constitution is just a GD piece of paper” to solidify the security of the looming corporate welfare state. (Histories usual narrative of the wealthy and status entitled keeping their privilege at anyone and anything else’s expense.)

GOVERNMENT BAD

Government was to be framed as the source of the oppression you feel, (to unseat notions of public benefit) especially the delusion that common tax was the only thing that took your own will to survive out of your pocket. (Money as your status, real value and self respect.) The will of the people (that is democracy) to address issues relating to the common good of all, was to be poisoned from both the right, and eventually the seduced pulpit itself.

Words had to have their meanings changed, charged, tainted and effectively disabled from true consideration. No more commons for you, it was never there actually. You are to be abandoned to Gods will. If you have problems you are a sinner or looser. God, presumed to not want others to share your burden, nor help lift you up, not even care for you if sick. Your church, savings, insurance if you can afford it, or family is presumably your safety net, if you have one that is.

24/7/12/365 FEAR CARDS FOR YOU

Fear, however, effects each life at times. It is a powerful director of attention. And in the hands of the right wing of things, government was to be feared as a thief, and from some churches, as an agent acting against the will of God.

Now the doors are opened to exploitation and predation in the name of opportunity. President Eisenhower had seen how far this fear and paranoia industry had gone by the 50’s, and seemed to believe it endangered our very nations founding legacy. Little did we know that the information media, would itself align with its own big business interest first, public welfare, concern for the whole, last.

That whole economic trickle down theory puts one in proper perspective. The wealthy, if feeling generous, will hire you since they see they can make some money off of you at the moment, and let a little bit trickle into your cup. We are to praise and thank them. Just listen to all their commercials! They are only interested in bettering your life. But you never know the real long term cost to the whole for their operations.

ALL CREATION IS PARTITIONED AND FOR SALE

The right wing became the spreader of new meaning. Still it is seen everywhere. Unknowingly, bias can come along with the very acceptance of the framed notion. Individuals of great wealth set up the attack on what is called the Commons, as well as an educational infrastructure created to demonize all government as it applies to compassion, empathy and understanding, except in areas where those human “goods” could be used specifically to wedge people away from their broad definition.

Oddly, this attack on the media whose job should be liberal, wide open and not some one party’s line; which must then point out unresolved issues, societal incongruities and conflicts relating to privilege, pollution, global warming, suffering in the world and amidst our own poor etc… These were tagged as liberal bias. An evil thing that focuses on what is wrong.

By not focusing on what was not working for the whole system, those wrongs could be and were ignored, even blamed for their own existence. Remember hurricane Katrina victims? Troubled Iraq war veterans? All their own fault. Not our responsibility. Give me more tax cuts.

A legion of true believers in liberal bias of the media was sent out to seed the public with suspicion of anything that could be termed liberal. (I must note that liberals can be as one sided as anyone else at times.) In the current campaign it is still a poison pill of a sorts even for democrats. The implicit liberalism of Jesus Christ, and the Bill of Rights has been scaled back. In some Christian religious sectors, Christ love is for the “reborn”, to only apply to they who follow the right wing buzz word and wedge issue machine, all circularly codified as representing the good, and what is bad be damned.

HOW MONEY FORCES ISSUES ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

Years ago I had heard (a book documented the phenomenon) that some 80,000 had graduated from “conservative” schools explicitly to seek work in the media. It was no accident that in the lead up to the Iraq war; conservative “talking heads” outnumbered liberal ones more than 3 to 1. Were we really a nation designed to be fed bias as truth in matters of life and death? Is that what our nation stands for?

Is full and forthright truth, less important than cherry picked facts and loaded opinion masquerading as reality? If so, no one ever told me that is why we sacrifice the lives of our hero’s in war, to protect deception of elites above the whole truth. That would seem akin to treason. Yet some who worked in newsrooms claimed that the directive was to have at least two pro war talkers when any contrary one was there.

Is patriotism served by a mathematically loaded deception? Maybe in old warlord systems like Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. But the land of the free and home of the brave, also proudly the cowering conformist cult of the deceivers?

I HEARD IT! YOU SAID THE L WORD!

For many these days, just the mention of liberal, is now equated with taking from you and giving to the undeserving. It is a victory for powerful interest that can be said to take from you and give to themselves. That with the aid of their well funded “think tanks”, they have been able to frame the population at large into a biased corner. This seems to be their right, given they can afford to, and did so far, get away with it. This post will not be appearing much of anywhere, for instance. Nor many more well reasoned and documented ones I might add.

Now we come to that place where between media consolidation and corporate privilege over that of the individual American, we enter a time where the freedom to be able to think for oneself is itself at great jeopardy. If this trend persist, we will end up with the complete surrender of what was the United States of America.

The freedoms, rights and responsibilities will be instead, at the whim of the One World Corporation, a conglomerate of united companies who finally put an end to war, and instead, partition the worlds bounty amidst themselves and their sycophants. If those conservative interest do not unite to stop losses on destruction and competition, they will continue to attempt to destroy each other, leaving the world as collateral damage.

FASHION TRENDS IN WORLD DOMINATION

We are entirely capable of having the whole experiment in freedom and responsible democracy, atrophy until it resembles the era of the Pharaohs. There seems to be not much in the way of a completely fear based state for the worlds people, all dependent upon a new breed of masters.

Well, I do know of one thing that can stop the trend. No. Not UFOs. It is a secret weapon called Unconditional Love. The actual Power that manifest the universe. An Infuence which we are free to ignore, to our everlasting detriment. Odd, that we each have a Divine Power in our midst, which we too evidently seem to miss. One could even go so far to say, that heaven is at hand if we are willing to see it right there, in our hands.

THE X RAY: WHEN TRUTH TURNS NAKED

From one ex cult member to all those unknowing true believers in manipulated theory, believed to be proven fact; like the “liberal media” as an anti good thing, when I see your use of buzz notions as God given truths. I can see right through you. What really happened to your heart, your love?

PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE PRIMARY QUALIFICATIONS

TOP 10 PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE PRIMARY QUALIFICATIONS

{the unwritten but understood bottom lines sifting democracy out to sea}

(My comments are essentially a one note song. My opinion of this is; the truth bares repeating, because falsehoods are proliferating like E.coli in a petri dish. That is my point of view that is.)

10 Qualifications:


1. Do not fundamentally challenge the status quo.

Well who are they?

The powers that be in your town, your state, your church (assumed majority). In other words; status vested individuals and cliques, especially moneys freedom to keep itself to itself, and increase itself as much as possible. More or less the cancer philosophy, consume until nothing is left, then die. Hopefully you will be gone by then.

2. Allow the office (government) to atrophy, along with the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Bible or other books and papers if need be. They are just papers after all.

Well what good is that?

The chief executive is not to hold corporations accountable for dominator based globalization and its world wide impacts. The exploitation of the underclasses always required to do the hard work, the kind with real stench, sweat and grueling hours to boost the profits of CEOs and shareholders is to be condoned. That is our lifestyle, or more popularly; vital national interest.

All of government associated with social welfare and health (aside from the violence (terror) supported institutions) are to be strangled in the proverbial bathtub, UNLESS YOU HAVE A SUPPORTER THAT CLAIMS PRIVATIZATION WILL MAKE THEM (AND SO YOU) RICH. MR OR MS HEAD OF NATIONS CEO.

3. Pressure “lesser” nations for their resources to maintain your societal stability.

This may require pre-emptive actions, and historically, much behind the scenes subversion of democracy and authoritarian regimes. Pay-offs and promises of support, monetarily or militarily, handles, lets say 95% of this task. Elimination or invasion, the rest.

4. At home, or Homeland, Fatherland, Motherland, Christianland, wherever and whatever Orwellian time you are in, media companies will subconsciously always present their profit making bottom line philosophy ahead of any other population segments interest.

Fourth Estate down for the count and out of the way.

But that is the free press?

Right. Free in what respect? Not the free flow of ideas and information regardless of political impact. But free to make money any way they can by having you read or watch their stuff, and be stuffed with it. This is cancers way, I meant to say, the way of growth and prosperity. Yea! That’s the ticket!

5. Preside over, and not interfere with the continuing segmenting of society;

Red or blue, soccer moms and Nascar dads, people of faith or secular heathens, Bible belters or coastal elites, generation X-Y-Z or the greatest one, hawk or dove, militarist or terrorist enabler, tree hugger or pro business, and on and on. You name it and we will get an opposite for you to sap your energy away.

There you go. Feel helpless enough yet? We are going for apathy here, so many can just feel democracy is not about some melting pot and collective optimism for all. That’s it. The more things change the more they stay the same. All politicians lie. Disenchantment. Perfecto!

6. Claim you won the election to unite the country to address our common needs. Ask for the support of all to fix and return our country to its promised land.

That being said; you purportedly have just 100 days to try to get your agenda through. Then all special interest are to have at it. From now on you blame the other party for everything that goes wrong. All seemingly going well is to be claimed all to your credit. This is the Law of converting loss into diversion to gain in the smoke and mirrors screen game.

The “free press” then is engaged with an apparent tug of war between conflicting interest. That gets old! Sports and entertainment become the exciting venues of change that seem important. The media then, consumes you with these diversions.

7. Develop potential to freeze that newfangled collection of Internets tubes, Internet bloggers and pundits use, who can be said to be undermining the nations (your top elite donors or voters) cause.

“Is that legal under the Bill of Rights? Hello! Haven’t you been listening? That’s just another piece of paper, like a ballot used to be. Duh!”

No one was allowed to stand up for long to the documented 935 distortions of a presidency in just two years time. After a terrorist incident, (real or imaginary) you are tared as a traitor, or leftist, or fanatic, to question. Corporate media bias is to reinforce the side perceived to control their privilege and purse strings. Censorship and propaganda merge into the consensus viewpoint.

Citizens then have to seem to themselves to go against what they hear and see. Usually this feeling only goes so far, before it seems inherently self defeating. How many are willing to stand up in front of a tank as that guy in Tienanmen Square did? I’ll tell you. You probably do not know anyone who would. Who stood up for the two compromised and manipulated elections of recent history? How about if suddenly your credit or money was refused everywhere you went? Point made. Bye, bye Bill of Rights.

You know what control of you will look like? It is invisible! Censorship like it is in China, but better. Everyone else will not notice your deprivations. For a while people thought the Web would become the new Fourth Estate, where direct information flow would enhance both truth and government. That had to be neutralized eventually.

On the Internet, for instance, your stuff will vanish from site(s), eventually won’t even leave your keyboard. The same for anyone else who uses your cue words or questions. Most voices will shrink from implied terror as they always have. We are going for the best control factors of all; survival fear and paranoia. In this land of collaborative citizen cowardice, we know who I am.

Uh. I’m going to stop here at that one.

….and that students, is just one found example of a personal view at the time, of how the land of the free and home of the brave, became the land of the completely controlled (subconsciously) and home of the constantly fearful. We must understand how fear altered reality perception for our ancestors, to the point of reversing their values and substitution of insecurity based reactions; the food for opportunist and predators alike. They became as putty in manipulators hands.

For instance; the liberalism of Jesus Christ was turned on its head to such a degree, that empathy and compassion for all, and turning the other cheek or loving ones enemies, were considered by many Christians to be the workings of Satan.

It was a stunningly deceptive time.

That is why we now have the understanding of these manipulative technologies mandatory in all school settings. We must inoculate ourselves from deception, or by hook or by crook it will come back to haunt us. You don’t want to become the target of some predatory interest that has you set up like sitting ducks do you?

Thanks for that loud; No way!

That will be all for today.

Remember tomorrow to bring your book on Contrapuntal Reverse Psychology Logic Strategies. Also the pamphlet on The Use Of Emotion To Divert Attention Via Contextual Relativism Of Facts And Statistics.

There is some written homework.

In your own words, write one page, with an example, on how Rationalist can use empirical evidence to promote their own existential ends as proof of a fact that is, in actuality, a fallacy. Please make it convincing, as if you were looking for converts. That means make me a believer.

Do not forget to read the compilation of articles in the file; ALTERING INDIVIDUAL IDENTITIES IN ORDER TO MANIPULATE THE APPEARANCE OF FREE WILL INTEREST TO CONFORM TO ANOTHER’S DESIRED IMPRESSION. Read this by tomorrow! It is essential reading for proceeding toward the test on Social and Cultural Matrix Manipulation coming up the end of next week.

Have some fun before this class tomorrow!

Have even more this weekend if you have signed up for the ferry to Disney’s Moon-Base; Earth View. Maybe next year the school will get a field trip to; Dark Side Rover Wild. We’ll see.

But get those study periods in!
