A hungry tiger cannot be reasoned with. Animals of a predatory nature thirst for blood and crave flesh. Their drives to sustain life are the primary focus of their existence. It’s under this imperative that they roam the earth.
Precociously confronting the evolutionary drives of such creatures, under a hypnotic maze of misinformation, causes injury and death.
Gravelike unawareness, bordering on the ignorant, is destructive and dangerous. When such obtuseness insolently masquerades itself as truth, via the instruments of corrupted leadership within the white house, congress, our school systems and many media outlets; the consequences are severe.
An established world view founded upon fantasy, denying the clear and present realties before us, has developed into a psychosis deeply embedded within the propaganda spoon fed to us, as our rudderless ship spirals out of control towards the abyss. A leaderless nation, devoid of authentic “Fourth Estate” inquires; has lost its direction and sense of purpose. This confusion has caused us to doubt ourselves, as we incessantly claw away at something to fill the emptiness.
The apocryphal narratives proffered as fact, by a plethora of pundits, presidents and politicians; are designed to cause doubt and fear within the voting public, as it weakens our moral fabric, while creating greater dependency upon the very people and institutions orchestrating and proliferating these deceptive tales.
Dumb downed curriculums, along with incompetent, negligent and characterless individuals overseeing the affairs of government and business, have become an acceptable model and standard by which we govern and generate commerce.
Selfishness and self-absorption are establishing the norms by which we select our public officials. Ideologues, clinging to their one trick ponies, march in lock step to the repetitive tunes of their drum major, no matter how off key and out of step they’ve become.
Shallow, lacking depth, absent the experience that comes from being on the firing line of life; along with their composite biases and prejudices, many of these partisan sycophants form herds of thought, clinging to their minions, as they lash out and attack anyone who dares to challenge their ideas.
Segregating themselves within sheltered enclaves of cognition , they’re unable to formulate opinions based upon the accrued wisdom of others. An accurate and divergent understanding of the facts is beyond them. They’ve lost the ability to improvise, adapt and overcome.
An ‘analytical reasoned finding’ based upon scientific evidence, is a necessary ingredient in formulating any real and lasting solutions to the problems we face as a nation and planet.
Barbarism and slaughter do not originate in a vacuum. Over inflated egos, narrow mindedness, bigotry, conceit, partisanship and vainglory; birth ineffective and feckless policies, which lead to violence and war.
The instability, lack of trust and killing in the world are caused by the lies and actions of evil people; while those of us thinking ourselves good, do nothing.
It’s altogether fitting for the offspring of those presidents who author and preside over violence and killing, to adorn a military uniform and be shipped off to fight on a battlefield in one of our undeclared wars. In fact, not one more American should be sent into combat, to be killed or dismembered, until the aforementioned individuals share in the consequences created by their father’s failed policies.
Along with raising one’s consciousness, skin in the game will drive, incentivize and motivate these presidents to reach cooperative agreements with those they disagree with. Rather than being so quick to invade and kill people they find offensive. Perhaps, they’ll draw upon the wisdom and experience of those who may have a better way. Individuals who’ve actually developed policies and formulated solutions, which have brought clarity, realization and success into the world.
