DIVIDE AND CONQUER YOU!

DIVIDE AND CONQUER

It is a time tested truth; that anyone or thing reduced to parts, is easier to deal with. Sometimes this tactic, and or strategy, to overwhelm ones nemesis-(meaning here, an alleged evil that appears to harbor a latent superior power), this divide and conquer power move is blatant enough to those being parted out as the evil ones. However, when it is used politically to fissure away ones identity, to disassemble it by negative inference, then rebuild it under the umbrella of positive ideals that are in the hands of a power structure, it is being applied to each individual self. Divide and conquer under this context takes on the appearance of personal values, what one identifies as good or essential to personal and societal order, thus to survival.

Liberalism has always been under attack. Liberalism, as it pertains to governments, resulted from overwhelming revolutionary forces that either attained a vast population majority to overthrow oligarchical/monarchical status quo’s enforcers (American Revolution), and or produced a symbiotic empathy among significant numbers of the ruling class elites that initiated a kind of moral imperative to change the status quo (civil rights movement).

In the latter case’s, it was likely the artist and intellectuals that offered the reasoned dialectic to alter the nature of social and societal contracts. We came to see one another as less endowed by our stations in life, and more equal due to moral and ethical imperatives like the Christian Golden Rule, the Categorical Imperative, and other beliefs that assume a common value to each human life regardless of hereditary endowments.

A CONCEPT AND ITS DIFFERENCE IN REALITY AS IT PERTAINS TO EACH INDIVIDUAL

These revolutionary ideas were most often kept in the abstract in many ways. When the American Revolution was completed; all men were allegedly create equal with rights endowed by their Creator, however, indigenous men and black slave men (someones “property”) were not even on the radar of the “universal right”. Women were not mentioned no matter what nature of woman one was. The fulfillment of the liberal ideal was to take time–because human identities were already deeply divided by persistent conservative notions that negated the “advance” of liberalism by selective use by advantaged groups, and consensus ways of being (group mindsets). Most conservatism has in its thought matrices the conservation of power structures to one groups advance above all others. Conservatism “advances” to undercut liberalism and its attendant freedoms and responsibilities, for it is in fundamental reactionary opposition to them.

We have a new kind of dominant oligarchical form these days; the corporation. We have seen that the “individual” corporation acts as both a shield from real individuals responsibilities to those who make up the corporations power structure, and supplies dividends to those who buy into the corporation by shares=a pyramid owning gambling scheme. This new dominant pseudo-life form has reduced the rights of individuals even in alleged democracies. Corporations, the big influential and transnational ones, are dividing societies into a new dimension of feudal order. Democracy’s power of We the People is atrophying constantly, as hierarchical interest reorder societies and culture into a homogeneous world culture which maximized predatory capitalism’s market share.

THE WORLD DIVIDED

The “Super powers” were in conflict over which paradigm would rule. Both cold war superpowers claimed to be for freedom of one kind or another. The USA cast the conflicts brand name into a freedom vs totalitarian order. (The side using the concept naturally applies its own selective positives to it valiant motives.) The USSR viewed the conflict abstractly as one of individual freedom and equality by them, vs. a vast array of money making schemes that oppressed peoples inherent rights to be free and equal.

Both notions of freedom were highly self delusional in practice, not so unlike the, “all men are created equal” while many men were not even given the dignity of respect as a man. This; oops we forgot to include you all in our idea, applies to many notions that can derive from the concept of freedom as well as other abstraction, some in apparent opposition depending on what ones interest are. These all become weapons in the battles to control human perception and identity. Divide and conquer comes home to you and me. We must reach a consensus on what is the reality of the abstraction, or we will continue to find ourselves at odds over the very same words seeming opposite out of the others mouth.

AND HERE IT COMES

This battle to divide us in a war that seems unending. It shows up in one way or another in most all societies regardless of political, religious or even spiritual identities. We are trapped in this vice of apparently competing self interest that when under pressure, has us tribalisize our identities into us against them conservative notions of superiority and inferiority constructs. In America we see this happen over and over again come election time.

Because the conservative agenda seems to be waning at the moment, the wedge, or divide and conquer right wing attack machine will be geared up to plunder the nutrients from an American public, so anorexic as far as critical thinking abilities are concerned. These manipulators need try to assemble some likely plurality of the population that either identifies with a superiority complexes self ideals, or else convince many that the likely liberal other side is out to undermine all that is good, right and holy. This requires many cognitive and dissociative tricks to be played.

Tricks that are only valuable to those who are subject to being tricked. Subjects such as these need to assume a fear to make a logical “jump”. Stresses need be instilled into the population to help induce anxiety and so automatic interest in the conservative argument. The corporate media allows these tricks to take place and considers them fair overall. Tricks, or otherwise deceptions, are given the right of truth in argument. Realities have eaten away at the facade of conservative superiority both internationally and in domestic “moral” argument. It is hard to be the party of morals when despite all the suppression of incompetence, their own contempt of public good will and their corruption riddled conservative power structures has been nearly impossible to keep from the light of day without a totalitarian state. They will then, be in pursuit of creating a totalitarian mindset.

THE NEXT WAVE OF IGNORANCE

Each election season the same tricks and shell games are rolled out. By both parties, true, but a scale of magnitude order more by the right wing. The right wing actually has a kind of asymmetrical advantage over the more left. Liberalism requires understanding, often of complex and nuanced issues that will contain elements of both ambiguity and contradiction. Liberalism is a movement towards more freedom of the individual overall. It has not always accepted the responsibilities of that freedom for it is caught in the vice of partial dysfunction and the appearance of lack of moral and accountability virtues. This “evil” comes with the nature of liberalism existing amidst overlapping historical dysfunctions across the whole of society, and the permissiveness necessary to allow individuals to experiment and make mistakes in their own lives.

The liberal “realities” make them a ready made scape goat for conservatism’s self perpetuating dysfunctional state of exclusion. If we can get a population to become relatively uneducated in the liberal arts and sciences, we can have people much more susceptible to the cults of exclusion. We can have people who do not wish others to be around them. We can have people who will let ignorance be their guide, instead of understanding. We can have the population become their own ducks in the power structures shooting gallery. We can do these things and have those people, enough of them, to win an election or get close enough to allow the compromised electoral process to change the actual outcomes of election. Once again, these realities will appear absurd to the uninformed or those already suffering under the influence of a stealth reasoning’s bias masquerading as a fact based truth.

Dominator conservative interest around the world are bound to be in some ways at war with one another, since they are all trying to dominate human market share. We have economic systems seeking their freedom to spread to all quarters, and religious and the sociocultural ideologies that feel themselves intrinsically superior and destined to dominate the world because of; fill in the blank——-. Those who hold these view’s feel entitled to rule the world. Feeling entitled to own the world conversely has conservative interest feeling they have every right to destroy it.

It is conservatism that is pro destruction, pro most wars of acquisition, pro violence and terror applied to societal order etc. They are essentially anti-spiritual, in that might makes right to their adherents, and not unbridled understanding to discern likely fact and truth of the matters at hand. Rules and regulations rule the day. It is odd how the attempt by governments (representing the peoples greater interest presumably) are attacked by conservative interest when government attempts to hold all individuals responsible for the effects of their actions. We will see these so called principled conservatives do the opposite of their alleged moral tenets when it is to their advantage to do so. (ex; activist Supreme Court (conservatives) doing in states rights Supreme Court to throw election one way–to conservatives.)

Pollution, human exploitation, these kinds of generic taking of something wholesome from the commons and leaving it in disarray, is considered a right of privilege by those who benefit by the opportunistic advantage over others. They will codify these perverted rights into restrictions of human freedom. The big bad government interfering in our lives. This is exactly why opportunist need to make others believe they are themselves recipients of the predatory advantage, inducing cognitive dissonance into the equations of reason.

BACK TO THE PAST AGAIN!

And here we are; the USA is debating whether to remember the corruption and gross incompetence of the predatory interest and their primary party, or join in a movement towards collective and common responsibilities to freedom and accountability for the effects of ones actions. The tricks are coming under the shells; gays are taking our morals away; liberals are killing the unborn; government is telling your business what it can or cannot due; they are out to take your guns away; our freedom to slant elections is an attack on freedom of speech; the tax and spend liberals are going to impoverish you, etc, etc. These arguments are only valid if ignorance can trump common sense. Common sense must be overturned, emotionalized into ad-hominem bias towards conservatives alleged confident rationalizations.

We have seen government grow more than ever under conservatism. Each tax cut for the rich goes somewhere other than to you. Your tax cut means that stealthy tax called profit is going to eat up your new found excess. Only now you do not even receive the benefit of the taxes effect on the targeted problem. Taking reasoned debate out of consideration of tax reform, leaves that ever growing burden on the population, on the general population, while the wealthy have options to do most anything they desire to avoid taxes and responsibilities for their actions, up to and including balling out of the national ship as soon as they notice the water coming in through the portholes. Conservatism, as it has become, relies on a fool being born every second, born, or indoctrinated into separation/alienation complexes. Unfortunately, it does now include legions of sycophants, people who will repeat false “truths” over and over just because some right wing ideologue said so.

We are receiving the regular test on how disassociated we are from our own inherent interest and how that relates to the interest of the commons. One reason why even the notion of the commons has been under siege for some time–as if all things are not connected!

It is decision time once again. Who am I really? And where do I stand? On the shores of understanding, or in the leaking “life raft” of separation and alienation from the whole, steady only in my unacknowledged illusions?

IT’S A BLACK, A WHITE OR A WOMAN THING

Polling has indicated that many will vote their color or sex in the coming elections. This means division and even tribalism is on the ascendant.

As is often said; make no mistake about it, in an allegedly two party system, this likely bodes ill for one party.

If you read my post regularly, you know I find the two party system deeply flawed, as I do see plurality victories as the same. It is a guaranteed way to not get things done. Many claim they are for change, after seeing the contempt evident by conservatives for the state and common citizen relationship. Liberalism was coming on strong. Liberalism happens to be the container of majorities of the operational values held by most of us in everyday life. Status quo power must confuse and diffuse this reality, and has the resources to do just that most of the time, unless conditions overwhelm manipulated impressions.

One party was and presumably still is trying to manufacture a one party state here in effect. Corporate controlling influence on both parties is strong, and proceeding to create a de facto one way state. In the Democratic party, it is engaged in a fight over the “soul” of the party. Our system of access to voters is subject to monies influence, and so, biased against those without much money to influence elections, an obvious statement. Ask yourself why both parties hardly ever bring it up?

If you vote for your candidate because they are more like you on superficiality of color, ethnic or sexual type, you are also helping to divide a pluralist nation further from a cohesive and comprehensive self identity and purpose, along with likely having less interest in what happens to the “other guys”. We wonder why we cannot agree on things, and that the bad government is always stalemated except when fears are pushed to extremes.

THE DUCKS THAT CANNOT DUCK

We are in a shooting gallery of a sorts. The Media is compromised by corporate ideological bias. A pseudo-democracy exist here without the right to vote. Voters information is partially at the mercy of campaign financing incongruities. A machinery of mud slinging is entrenched, with an arsenal of fear that is kept well oiled to keep the average citizen from knowing much about our governments actual behaviors in the world and its collusion with special interest here.

And we are going to vote for the woman cause she is a woman like me, or the white guy because at least he is a white guy, or the black guy because only he can understand what it is like to be me. But what can you do for your country?

I do not deny the appeal to anyone’s own identity of the illusion, yes illusion, that if someone is more like me things will go more my way. This is exactly what the two party system has degenerated into; the manipulation of self identity interest for control. Then, often, the selling of that interest to our representatives own self interest as individuals to benefit themselves off of the nations interest.

You do not have a right to vote. You do not have a right to have a vote counted if you do vote. You do not have fair access to differing viewpoints and perspectives on all issues. You have no real mechanism for making sure all your representatives in government are held accountable for what is done in your name.

You live on a one way street where companies get to cover their expense increases or desires for more profit by upping prices. Oops! We left workers and most everyone else out of that formula. Wonder how that happened? You now live in a place where “We the People” are the subjects of wealth as it takes over the earth via transnational corporate hegemony. And yet for many of us, a wedge issue will have us cast our relativized vote for some foolish notion of a sure thing. “Down with Taxes”, or tricks like a “Death Tax”, are some of the best methods of getting that tax money for the common good out of your pocket, and now quite possibly, into the pocket of someone else across the globe…And you thought you were going to be the beneficiary recipient?  Come on.

DECEPTION JOB WELL DONE! I’D SAY!

So go ahead, certain woman, men, blacks, whites and others, vote for your kind.

Just do not expect any kindness to actually manifest to you, but a few words.

It is necessary to vote for who and what is right for the whole nation. You must determine what that is for yourself. The commercials will be pretty well conceived, but quite possibly, pretty misleading.

When will we be weaned from our pacifiers?

SILENCE OF THE SCAMS

On Keith Olbermann’s MSNBC news and views show, he goes over the top 50 Bush scandals on occasion, to remind viewers of how they vanished from the news. I think the segment is called “Bushed”.

That is not exactly what I am talking about here. I am referring to our collective lack of perspective presented by the corporate news infotainment shows.

I remember many years back. One network’s expose’ news show was all about corporate and business abuse, misuse and scams. I’m sure this show drew some fire from powerful people. But after that network itself was found to be behind the corporate maneuvered takeover and consolidation lobbying efforts over the public airwaves, the show seemed to shortly vanish. Probably caught in the pot calling the kettle black hypocrisy thingy.

Those of you under forty might never have known how news networks once were. Bill Moyers PBS, is perhaps the closest representation of fact digging into corruption. Investigatory journalism was once a reality. Now it is pretty much considered a liberal bias to be avoided like the plague. Just as Richard Nixon would be considered quite the liberal by today’s standards, the conceptual paradigm in journalism has shifted far into existential relativism, were everyone’s view is just as good as anyone else’s, letting power and money buy much more time and perspective, just keep the contextual setting of facts out of the program overall. Well this has allowed truth itself to become a subject of conservative scorn and obfuscation. We the People, have in some respects, had the dunce cap put on our heads.

THE HEADS ON TALKING HEADS

The current senior crop of retiring news anchors are mere shadows of what came before, yet they are treated as if they were the nations wise elders. Certainly ego is always a factor in seeking out the limelight, but back in my childhood, news anchors seemed to be filled with and about the facts first, now they seem filled with themselves and what position’s them best in gaining market share. They retain a bit of the postured presentation of seemingly objective appearance, a style thing, but even that has followed the trend to excite the viewers, more so over celebrity dysfunctions, than endemic societal ones. Unfortunately, what one has not experienced, one tends not to miss.

The three still standing presidential contenders seem to grow silent over electioneering unless they have a particular problem raising funds, or it dawns on them that an extraordinary bias is afoot. Like biased news in relativity land pretending to be objective, a system where elections are dependent of raising big money, equals one systematically drowning out the voices of the poor and cash strapped. This undermines true democracy but is sold as some sort of Darwinian proving grounds of electability, nevertheless, those who can hardly donate are turned into Americans with out a say in who ends up finishing first.  Comes the Internet savior?  Nope.  Still not fair.  If the game is not fair, it is rigged.

QUITE! QUITE PLEASE!

This is where we enter the silence zone; where our fellow Americans have their voting rights tied with their hands behind their backs, and the rag of relativity stuffed into their mouths. Freedom and democracy? Shell game tricks played in the playground of abstractions. Why do our top three never mention truth, facts, ideas and accessibility to them? Those are fundamental nutrients for a healthy democracy and public voice.  We then can be had again.  Surprise!-NOT!

As long as we remain a society where truthful investigation is only occurring of the fringes, and the mainstream middle, while we are watching the side show inside, never hears the fog horn, and neither do we. The ship of state is evermore near the rocks, the gamblers inside, they will never know what hit them.

Unfortunately, they, may well be we.

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?

RULES OF DERANGEMENT

Compartmentalization; first law of separation

Divert attention; first law of bait and switch

Wedge issues; first law of divide and conquer political opponents base

False analogy; first law of stupidity

Contextual incongruity; first law of brain washing

Repetition, repetition; first law of echo chamber bias

Bound reality matrix; first law of Zeitgeist control

I’m just rattling off some obvious means of deception and manipulation. Most have to do with controlling others thoughts of themselves, who they identify with, then solidifying the perceptual deal. Now your interest comes from my interest.

Naturally what one calls the controlling interest in society, have the huge edge in employing methods of thought and perception control. Usually in childhood we are imprinted with our parents or some respected elders notions of what is right and wrong, and how we serve the former and defeat the latter. This is kinda rational in evolutionary Darwinian terms. Does not, however, imply implicit rightness.

For the political and social manipulators of their own interest advantage, reality cues outside of their ideology will be ignored or put down if they do not prop up the belief system. We hear the notions of tax or welfare selectively employed to bias perceptions this way and that. These days we have much personality pedaling influence or apparent charismatic surety to load the impressions in a predetermined direction. This means we are not looking for consensus in a tempered view of reality, but rather the higher validity of our sides own viewpoints.

Well and good on a small scale. There is or has been room for, competing viewpoints to battle it out over elections or other authority staking sermons. But now, with world systems integration and environmental impacts off the scale of human institutions to address compartmentally. A new paradigm must raise its integrating notions to center stage.

“Supporting business above a particular social groups need, is more truthful at benefiting society than tax and spend.” This is a popular notion of rising wealthy ships spending more money, which workers or somebody then can put in their canoe. It sides explicity with the welfare of the rich above the rest. The old trickle down theory has become leaky. These days it is a Faustian bargains shell game of deception chosen for the predeceived.

Not only might your rich yacht go and keep its loot in someone elses land, but the whole integral effect of expansion as the philosophy of cancer if off the budding opportunist radar.

We are using up earth resources at a dramatically unsustainable rate. We keep pushing the calamitous reckoning into the future. And now some of that future is here. In spite of this we see the true believers in unlimited expansion, mocking those who wish to learn from our mistakes.

Conservatives, in particular, look to no integrative reality check. They denied global warming in spite of the stunning ice core correlations between greenhouse gases and temperature rise. In their ideological bubble, they never see the pin. You can go to innumerable pundit sites on the right and feel the sneer at reality, the seeming contempt for inclusion of any contraindication. As conservatives are want to do; they will hang onto their rising ship delusion until it sits near the Titanic.

I grew up with how we were fixing the world by providing food (bread basket of the world) and big ways to mass produce it. Now we have a massive world population in teeming cities, disease, rampant pollution, desertification, and political turmoil from population and resource pressures; who, if they follow our bigger is better ways, we will be all gravely ill; and by the way have you bought the latest trinket or are you going to fall to the wayside. How is that wayside compared to extinction?

We should have a growth stage name to determining what economic cancers time limits are. We might be at stage three of four? But you will not hear of it from the ideologues on the right. You will hear such notions called (reach into their bag) lack of vision, extremist Luddites, leftist propaganda-socialism, class warfare, free riders, ignorance of how economic reality works, anti-Americanism, cave men mentality, and whatever cult reinforcing buzz word or phrase that is meant to have you ignore the reality that there is an illness, it needs treatment, or we all will suffer a convulsive end.

There is a kind of vast conspiracy going on in America. It is to keep us in the collective dark, that we not realize what our responsibilities truly are, and what responsibilities corporations and leaders should be honestly held to account to.
