I guess I feel a rant coming on today. If you're not in the mood, maybe scroll to the bottom, where I'll try to put up some cute photos, and leave the rest for another day.
In both a local sense as well as world-wide, I see amazing, positive, conscious cultural creativity arising and appearing unexpectedly every day, and true humans exhibiting extraordinary response-ability in this time of mass spiritual degradation....but, Is anyone else thoroughly disgusted with the 'landscape' of the blog/alternative media world at this point in the Age of Purposeful Insane Misdirection? Is this just an absolute taboo subject, something continuously un-noted because it's "not cool to do something that creates divisiveness" among "our side", who simply want to 'spread truth, disempower the psychopaths, make the world a better place, save the earth, and bring about a return to sanity'? Ok, I'm talking about the biggies here, the "popular", the million-visitors-attracting blog-sites that dominate the coverage of news and trends on the alternative end of the web (as well as the thousand-visitors sites that aspire to, and worship, the biggies, and regurgitate said sites' misdirections and propaganda). Do I have to name names? What would you do if I spoke 'out of line'...."would you stand up and walk out on me"? I see the overwhelming majority being agencies of narcissistic, historically-challenged, life-experience-challenged, non-earth-connected megalomaniacal individuals. Much expression of humility, but transparently not authentic. Much touting of their 'awakened state', even though admittedly of "recent occurrence". Disseminating of 'spiritual advice', but sourced in book-learning, not life-relationship disciplined hard practice. Personal social history of limited associations within exclusive, group-mind cult milieus (religion/business/military/commercial arts/academia/MSmedia/science/pharma-med/etc. Whatever, there's the ever-present dumb-ass amerikan "rock-star" mentality running through it all.
You say, well, I don't have to go looking at some shit if it annoys me. Problem is, it's all that we have as 'alternatives' to the bullshit Matrix media. Tee-vee and radio went totally in the toilet long ago (except for some tiny pockets and web-radio here and there). What we have is inundation with ancient reactionary mind-numbing fear-mongering, scapegoating, tavistock/intel-sourced misdirection, erasure of the true stories of events experienced by real people in real time, monotonous references to exceptionalism, all-out efforts at demonizing the actual diversity of human and non-human culture in our world, and other time-honored traditions of insane political verbal diarrhea: all those trainloads of foreign children streaming through "our" porous borders with their diseases; amazon feminists and queers ravaging our social fabric with their 'agendas'; hypocritical environmentalists and drugged-out hippies and their marijuana destroying our 'way of life' and prosperity; Islam- the religion of violence; the war on christianity; white genocide; the scourge of race-mixing; all-bad-jews-all-the-time; Hitler and the third reich were cool - 'scientifically' and 'spiritually' advanced*; all our iconic historical revolutionaries were violent psychopathic murderers; vegetarianism is killing everyone and bacon cures cancer; 'commie' Obama's drones/Obama's this/Obama's that; the cool wise military/intel vet dudes (*hi, VT and JackHeart!) who know what's what and will save us (some day in the future); young black thugs who deserve to get shot; [addendum: chemtrails only exist in nut-cases' minds; humans have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with climate change -Gore's delusion], on and on and on and on....I think I gotta go puke, and that's just the short list.
Alright, I don't give a shit if anyone wants to pollute their mind with misdirecting, confusing, half-assed social, political, or spiritual word-smithing that sounds brilliantly intelligent and authoritative. Knock yourself out. Talk to me in 10 years, after you've realized you've been taken for a ride down a bad road to nowhere. And you find these 'heroes' of the intertubes are no more real than tee-vee and screen characters. Or better yet, make an effort and go actually meet these 'heroes' and observe their demeanor, inflection, body language, eye movements, interaction with other normal human beings. And let me know how that works out for you.
Sometimes some real history squeaks through in film, for instance, like Cesar Chavez, easily accessible through any of the usual outlets. And pay attention to the embedded old news clips of Ronnie Raygun's comments on the events over which he presided. Other featured politicians' and officials' words, too, will clear up any confusion one might have regarding the veracity of the exact same misdirection and bullshit being propagated today on alt and mainstream media 24/7.
Raygun, btw, is the hero, "last legit president", to the VT crowd; but now they've 'awakened' to become supporters of Obama and Hillary. [You've come a long way! Praise Jeezus!]
[As Chris Hedges calls it, "the sickness of hypermasculinity which lies at the heart of military and fascist 'culture'..." (I don't know if "heart" is the correct chakra here.)]
Another film, of course, to bring one up to speed as to the historical reality of past and current conditions is Kill The Messenger, just released. From all accounts, also a must-see.
I get so mixed up, damn, don't know if we got a fat ball-head full-blown fascist police state, or is there just too many colored youth thugs runnin' aroun'? Too complicated, and there's a new game app out I need to download.
Maybe you missed this little historical perspective essay on the Ferguson scene:
The Making of Ferguson. More reality, actual history, exposing the ugliness of the ubiquitous ongoing racist misdirection. (or maybe you should just dismiss it - the author has a jewish sounding name...)
Wanna go back a little further? How about Watergate? Bet you didn't know a lot of the stuff spelled out in this little piece:
If you don't understand that ALL propaganda, everywhere, is vetted and flows through the INTEL complex, and always has, you need to dig a little deeper, as the above researcher has.
About that ISIS crisis thingy (and amerika's "friends") - summed up in one sentence:
"There are no moderates; there never were any moderates."
We should all know by now that's how shit rolls. Excuse me, I meant the empire, same thing.
You see, actually I am an amerika-hater.
Proud, card-carrying, and all that...and goes without saying, an israhell hater too.
Neither entity has any "right to exist". Not that most so-called "nations" should be considered exceptions either...well, maybe Kanata and Lakota are two off the top of my head.
All I got to say on the recent "election", and 'merkin elections in general (I don't need no stinkin' voting machine):
Or maybe someone like this would get me out to the polls -
In the past, she did -
And she did -
Of course, they're all insane, conspiracy theorists, and enemies of the state. [edit: whoops, I almost forgot "commie"!] You'd know that if you read the right alt blogs.
If political reality was the only reality (flash: it's not), we're screwed.
Q: How many truthers does it take to change....anything?
A: They have changed nothing.
Last week, a certain individual having access to my residence grounds, someone considered by the 'cool people' to be just about the coolest dude ever, a 'hip' reggae-lovin' manly jack-of-all-trades type - decided to lay out d-Con in the shed near my house. Seems he has a critter problem. I only got to the second tray to remove it. Do you know what that shit is? I had to school the sumbitch quite forcefully. Mouse/chipmunk eats it, suffers from ebola for up to 10 days, owl eats mouse, coyote eats owl, vulture eats coyote...or my cat, our neighbors' dogs get in the food-chain...this thing has finally been outlawed (this fall!) after many decades of battles and campaigns by just about every environmental org that exists.
What is wrong with (supposedly smart) peoples' brains? Sheesh! So yesterday I find a dead Brown Thrasher bird in the shed with no marks. Yesterday also found glue-traps all over another neighbor's yard. Fucking humans. Sometimes I just want out.
But....I have a most beautiful friend who depends on me. And I finally just found my tribe - a bunch of Cuban/Haitian drum maniacs. And I just began working with an amazing horse trainer and her horses. And I have new students from around the world. And I need to scan 40 years of rare traditional drum comps to make available on the web. And, and, and....
I think I'm losing it.
Shit, all I wanted to do was go on the net today and see if there was any straight-up crucial info that I and the love-tribe needs to know....well, it's definitely not the worst day of this life so far.
I hope yours goes as well, or a lot better!
