I honestly don't know how many of us are left here on Planet Wetiko. I see millions of humanoid bodies out there walking and talking like they're for real, but most days when I circle up with the brethren and sistren I see that there's a clear distinction between those who express true humanness in speech and action and resonance, and those who look and act basically like automatons. The latter, though they say the right words to make one think they are participating in 'normality', actually make me feel like I'm watching a pre-scripted cartoon of something that just resembles some past memory of what life here once was, before the death of the earth-as-we-knew-it began. Whereas, when I'm in sane human company, the energy and the words and the emotional undercurrent are consistent with the reality of the time and terrifying situation which exists and is undeniable to anyone half awake. Business goes on as usual, the consumption of pure shit in the forms of 'food', sound-bites, useless trivial pursuits and death-culture-sourced items continues unabated, even accelerated. It's why I stay close to the farm.
I'm suffering from compassion-fatigue for the masses who can't find the strength to acknowledge the vibrations of the ghastly horrors occurring hourly and coursing through their nadis and meridians on a never-before-experienced level. Thresholds of unspeakable blasphemy are crossed every day and obliterated for eternity - far surpassing even the worst travesties committed over thousands of years of inhuman insanity toward the Life Matrix in which we are embedded. Wetiko-psychopaths of every 'race', in every land, in every level of society, boldly go where even demons formerly feared to tread. They are being told their demonic lords and saviors are even now visible on the horizon. The greater the horrific depraved blasphemies they commit, the greater will be their glory in the coming reign of the soulless overlords.
"Leaders", from neighborhoods to empires, in our "civilized" world, all exhibit the symptoms of wetiko disease and malignant narcissism. Wetiko disease is a syndrome. It has as many manifestations as there are individuals. It is not a 'black and white' disease like leprosy or the plague. It grows organically advancing and retreating with each psychological decision made by individuals maturing through time making choices on a daily basis, either accepting or rejecting self-destructive attitudes and propaganda/brainwashing, till it reaches the stage of metastasis and effectively rules the organism.
Too many people who act/speak outwardly 'humanitarian' and 'progressive', espousing the 'social contract', and yet privately are known by their children to never express parental love nor hugs nor tenderness. These are the "liberal" posers, often mere opportunistic empty suits, oblivious to their own hypocrisy in daily consumption practices. They are infected as surely as are the fascist 'true believers' of racist, militarist, religious fanaticism. Keeping the disease hidden. This is why, in one sense, the 'liberal-conservative' 'culture-war' is a bogus divide-and-conquer scam.
But, on the other hand, there's those clear memories of the 60s, where neighbors told me that their "kid will kill your kind someday" for protesting Vietnam, where former high school teachers spit in my face while blockading the induction center, where I was condemned for playing "commie, nigger-loving rock and roll". The conservative fundamentalist forces. Is there a difference between the conservative mentality and the Wetiko disease? Conserving...what? SELF-INTEREST, SEPARATION, BLINDNESS, IGNORANCE, SELF-HATE, AND LOVE-OF-DEATH AND THE GLORY OF PILLAGE AND RAPE? Life is dog-eat-dog, law of the jungle, look out for number one, blah blah... Snickering at the trophy-hunting in national parks and in Iraq. Whining about school lunches + spotted owls = national debt. A case in point: the Wolf Controversy. "States' rights" vs "big govt"? A state is a state is a state. Never mind ecological awareness and biological facts on the ground like this: The Yellowstone Success Story and Those Who Want to Kill It
Fundamentalism is fundamental to what, on a spiritual or temporal level? Who the fuck knows where these words come from? Reverse-Robin Hooding, 'varmint' extermination, drug-wars, dead-zone business models, carcinogenic happy meals, extinction economics, the list is endless. Repeating "the list is endless" is endless. The awful tide sweeping the planet is one of so-called "god-fearing", white-knuckle-death-gripping, fundamentalist, relatedness-denying insanity from every religion and political belief-system, reacting in spasmodic explosions to the clear impossibility of maintaining the denial of the self-created cosmic abomination unfolding before our eyes. Politicians and voting will surely fix it.
For those few of us left with strong spiritual immunity against wetiko, fast approaching terminal information overload, I think pro-active shunning is perhaps most called-for, along with critical discernment, natch. As far as the shunning goes, there should be NO MERCY given to the ID'd perps. That was always the way 'social deviants' were dealt with in indigenous societies - shunning and banishment.
Latest example from recent days of the wetiko fundamentalist plague is the torture and execution of the beautiful Italian brother Vittorio Arrigoni [pictured at top], the "stay human" guy, in Gaza, vilified in perfectly classic wetiko fashion by the zionazis. Whether his murder was the result of fundies of the "monotheism and holy war" jihadists or a mossad covert-op, both conservative fundamentalists, we regrettably 'may never know'. What we do know is that a new threshold has been crossed, and also that "Vik" was a true human being and shining example of wetiko-free selfless service to the Most High. No words are sufficient to express the tragedy of the senseless taking of this brother's life. May his soul rest in peace and receive the many prayers sent from around the world from all peace-and-Life-loving resistors of evil occupiers and down-pressers.
Descending on this Earth Day into the absolute depths of hellish moronic depravity we visited the E6 Cattle Co.'s 10,000-head "dairy farm" in Hart, TX. [806-647-3744]
Last year's Ohio "dairy farm" abuse video from Mercy For Animals was extreme, but this one lowers the subterranean bar. (Is there any possible reason on earth to have 10,000-head dairy farms?) I'm not embedding this video.
Posted Thursday, this video, entitled NO MERCY, from MFA, reveals these "workers" "humanely euthanizing" calves with pick-axes and claw hammers. If you have nerves of steel, be prepared to scream and weep, or just skip to the music vids below.
I have to bring some serious joy, reflection, and positive vibes in; so these are some soul-healing moments from better days...
