My Canadian perspective: the ‘US Machine,’ the broken system, & this epidemic of sleepwalking through life. They keep you distracted by guiding your focus towards symptoms; that’s how they keep the problem around. It’s time for people to address the root, instead of the symptoms. Unless quicksand is your thing ..
Do we have a gun problem? It sure seems that way, doesn’t it; especially in the US. But is it really a gun problem, or is it more of a Humanity problem?
“I’ll take “Where is the Humanity,” for $1000 Alex.”
People are suffering; hurt, lost in pain. Sadly this comes as no surprise if you see the system for what it really is. There is an incredible amount of turmoil & needless suffering in the world; all by design, of course.“The system isn’t broken it was built this way.” If you can’t see that yet, or think it’s preposterous, you haven’t been paying attention. I beg you dear one, investigate. You shouldn’t be taking anyone’s word for anything without personally looking into it.
“Continuing to focus on just fixing the symptoms, & we’re squandering our time & energy. Instead, we should shift our focus from fixing symptoms, to finding a root cause & fixing that instead. And although finding the root cause may require courage & persistence, it is the only true way of fixing the problems you are facing for good.”
“Stop Fixing the Symptoms – Find the Root Cause Instead.”
Here in Canada we watch in disbelief our neighbors to the south killing each other at what seems to be a much higher rate than elsewhere in the world.
And now after the umpteenth US school shooting, people are blaming Trump. No surprise there. God forbid people do a little research. Find & attack the root, or the symptoms will keep popping up. Don’t be a hamster on an endless wheel going nowhere fast as you are Circling the Drain. You’ll be the only one to blame. Will people ever think for themselves again? Or will they continue to just scratch the surface, not even realizing there’s an infection, let alone treat it.
Check out this awesome vid from a fellow blogger who knows what’s going on:
“Literal Insanity” by 3iconstructs
Don’t you know – everything is Trump’s fault?! Just last night I stubbed my toe pretty bad & I yelled out, “Damnit Trump I know that was you!” Surely I jest. You don’t blame outside things for what happens in your life when you’re awake. Broken records singing the same song; & boy is it time for a new tune.
Blaming anyone for the Florida shooting, cuz they’re in the NRA, is misplaced anger. Oh hello narrative, what are you doing here? Why are you blaming someone else, for someone else picking up a gun & choosing to go on a murderous rampage? For being in a group you don’t like, but ignoring the fact only 5% of gun owners are in said group? Surely you jest .. Candid camera, is that you?
Oh, narrative .. it’s you again. Talk about overstaying your welcome ..
The shooter made a choice. His choice is his responsibility.
“Student survivors of Florida shooting slam Trump over FBI tweets.”
Gimme a fuckin’ break.
“The NRA has about 5 million members, & about 90 million gun owners in the U.S. That means just over 5% of gun owners forked over $35 to sign up.”
Even gun owners don’t like the NRA. Hey straw – careful – you’re being grasped at ..
This, or any school shooting, has nothing to do with the NRA or it’s members. Their narrative is addressing a ‘symptom,’ not the root of the problem.
“Most gun owners don’t belong to the NRA & don’t agree with it either!”
“Why It’s Total Bullshit – You Don’t Join the NRA.”
Where is the madness at the fact that guns / assault rifles are so easily available in a world that’s in so much pain some act out violently? Protect yourself with your handguns if you must. Relax, no one is trying to take that away from you. But there is absolutely no valid reason for people to have access to the “kill several in seconds” automatic rifles & other killing machines.
Why aren’t the ‘responsible gun owners’ – the licensed, the safety first, practice at the shooting range, proper cleaning & safe storage folks – those who own it to protect their family & property – ever go on mass shooting sprees? They don’t. So maybe it’s not the guns. What about women? Women suffer from mental illness. Why aren’t more women embarking on assault rifle mass murder shooting sprees?? They don’t. Hmmm, so maybe it’s not mental illness?
If you’re awake, you know it’s ‘a la mode‘ to be on the bash Trump train, according to just about every “media” outlet; & many agree. The world is filled with too many reactionary thinkers & not enough critical ones. People love to bash people for going against the narrative. You’re angry at a system – a very fucked up one. You won’t realize that unless you know about the system. The Matrix – that is the real issue. The evil is the system – not any sitting president. When more people wake up to that, we’ll stop attacking each other & make some actual progress.
Our differences ARE our beauty. Don’t be afraid of what’s different – embrace it! We should be teaching & learning from each other – that’s how we grow. Not by ripping people apart & destroying their lives because they don’t agree with us. Don’t be a 6 year old having a tantrum in the sandbox. And that all comes from fear. People are afraid if they accept others’ differences, they’ll lose a part of themselves. Learn to play well with others without ripping the heads off their dolls.
It’s painful to watch people wasting their time fighting fluff, static, & nonsense – playing right into their hands – instead of figuring out what the root of a problem is. Because if they cut the head off the snake, eliminating the problem once & for all, what ever will they whine about then? How will the MSM ever sell their papers? Yeah I’m talking to you MSM. The mainstream misleading teams. And you Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, etc. It’s an open secret that they silence those whose opinions differ, as they pledge their blind allegiance to those who fill their food bowls.
If they were anchored in truth, that would be completely unnecessary. But they aren’t. They’re anchored in narratives.
God forbid they keep it a level playing ground.
Or maybe greed corrupted them along the way, & the value of human life fell to the wayside.
Whatever it is, the current craze needs to fade away; hearing a narrative & jumping on board because it’s believed by the majority; or their friends, boss, parents, spouse or church. There’s always someone trying to tell someone else what to do. But bandwagons are often hopped onto without any kind of investigating. Where are the days of the healthy debate, comparing notes, to see how each got to their conclusion, agreeing to disagree? “The Lost Art of Critical Thinking💡Can it Make a Comeback?” In it’s place is the automatic disparaging, ridiculing & discrediting of all that is not popular belief. ‘If you’re this, then I hate you / If you’re this, then I love you.’ Well, as long as it’s not conditional! The whole “If you’re not with us, you’re against us “mentality is a misguided one. Stop taking guidance from the Box of Lies.
“If we pit them against each other; having them fight each other will keep them from fighting us.”
We mustn’t let them divide us.
A few caught red-handed: CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, Washington Post,Janet I-heard-they-took-away-your-Pulitzer Cooke. Newsweek, CBS, Dan Rather, NBC, Brian Williams, MediaMatters: When you have to write Media “MATTERS” – you know it’s cuz it doesn’t. It’s like a restaurant that calls itself “Tasty Pizza.” If it really WAS tasty, it’d speak for itself & wouldn’t need to be deceptively included in the name. The New York Times, Walter Duranty, Jayson Blair, The New Republic, Stephen Glass, Rolling Stone, Daily Wire, Nik Cohn, Mike Sager; & sadly the list goes on & on.
What’s the going rate for a Soul in 2018?
“A Plea to Journalists”
We don’t have a gun problem.
We have a Humanity problem.
I really don’t think the US political machine wants gun control. If they did, we’d have it. They’re obsessed with military & defense, & spend more money on it than I can bear to think about. “Here’s how the US military spends its billions.”
Isn’t it just another illusion, like the war on drugs? “If voting actually changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” Hold on lemme see if I get this: You’re saying with more laws, all of a sudden criminals are gonna say, ‘Shit, I better not break the law now?‘ If laws stopped people from breaking laws, then why are there criminals?
People are drifting further away from reality, seeing only the narrative. It’s truly frightening.
The problem isn’t Trump or any sitting president; the problem’s been around since way before he came along. See for yourself! Check out this explosive documentary from Oliver Stone. It even shocked me. And I’ve been researching this stuff for years. This exceptional film gave me an even deeper look – not to mention the incredible footage. I didn’t think it could be any worse than I already thought, but it is. I’ll take the $1000 I won from Alex earlier & place a bet: I wonder how many Americans don’t know the half of the stuff Stone exposes. Power & Greed are sickening disease.
“Untold History of the United States: Explosive Documentary by Oliver Stone”
We may not respect what the other is saying, but we must respect their right to say it.
Will people ever realize there’s been a huge propaganda & disinformation campaign going on for so long? “The Disinformation Campaign.” Will they realize the importance & necessity to do their own research, to question everything?
Politics is such utter bullshit. American politics is an insane asylum. In 45 years on this planet, I’ve happily avoided the nonsense of the political machine. And around & around they go. It’s a merry-go-round, & all the riders are clowns – they’re just not very merry. They think they are, but you cannot fill your void with money or stuff.
You can see the evil in their eyes.
Take a 6 month break from Twitter, & when you return, it’s still the same arguments over & over, one side trying to prove to the other why they’re wrong. If people could not only accept, but embrace our differences, we could move past this onto something else. People need to let it go. It’s about as necessary as religion in our lives. And the fashion world. And the sports world. And the news world ..
Distractions. Meant to divide. It’s those still attached to it that keep it alive. Its’ purpose is to keep you busy – busy & distracted. All these constructs are just static – to distract you from figuring out why we’re really here.
How about trying something you’ve never done before?
What if you just let it all go?
All the labels, classifications, assumptions? What would you be then?
And it just so happens that that’s one of the goals of this spiritual journey. Peel away the layers of this never-ending onion & get to the core: Authenticity. Our differences are our beauty. Don’t be afraid of what’s different – embrace it!
I’ve always been fiercely against conforming & complacency. I don’t follow the herd & I never will. I usually go out of my way to do the opposite of the mainstream. I refuse to be a sheep – I discovered there was a veil after enduring the umpteenth trauma; & I’ve been peeking behind it ever since.
The Matrix, escape it: the corrupt, depraved, deceiving, decaying, hypocritical, double standard, meant to keep you down, never built for you system. A system you need to know about to pop out of, let go of, detach from. It’s been fucking people over for years; while they blindly pledge allegiance to a flag / religion / country / other nonsense. These are labels & not who we are.
