An article by Sha'Tara, local writer and friend.
OK, Digging right in
[Thoughts definitely from the Other Side]
My favorite line of the year—so far!—and it's only just begun, as Karen Carpenter would sing it—and
Armageddon was yesterday. Today, we have a serious problem. (Stieg Larsson: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)
There you go, all you conspiracy theorists (do you realize how many different ways you can misspell "conspiracy" and have it still come out meaning something?) anyway, there you go, remember that quote on December 31 of this year of our Lord, 2012. Armageddon will have gone by, all the "predictions" will have come to naught, having become post-dictions with liberal doses of additions of addictions, and the problems assailing this dying world will have only worsened. (That doesn't need predicting.)
And why is that? Simple: the same gang of ruthless sociopaths and greedy fiends who constitute this world's leadership will still be in power and will still be sucking the life out of everything they touch.
And why is that? Simple also: because of the 7 plus billion pseudo-humans inhabiting this twisted world, hardly a one will take responsibility for their own lives. They will continue to sell themselves as cheaply as possible to the lowest bidder—I need a job, man; will mindlessly continue to absorb corporate and government lies as easily as they absorb the poisonous junk foods shoved at them through drive-thru windows laced with the fumes from the car ahead whose driver is a bit slow in paying his toll.
I know, it's not a pretty picture. Better to head to the movie theatre, put on the plastic glasses and absorb more 3-D gratuitous violence or go watch a "game" of football or hockey. OK, so it's not like a real war, you only get to watch and can't actually blow any helpless civilians to bits but beggars can't be choosers now, can they.
And beggars is what this society is made of. Oh, not just beggars, but beggars in debt to their armpits and perhaps even higher. Now back to following Lisbeth Salanger sleuthing through those Swedish towns.
I find more reality in fiction than the world around me these days. And, ah, the wonderful freedom from not having to kowtow to an alarm clock. Imagine that: for over fifty years I had to live at the beck and con of a mindless alarm clock.
Quote the Raven: "Never More!"
More from "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Steig Larsson
[thoughts definitely from the Other Side – by Sha'Tara]
The second most interesting quote of the year, and from that same book I quoted yesterday, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Steig Larsson, says,
"Wennerström was devoting himself to fraud that was so extensive it was no longer merely criminal—it was business."
Now I wish I could think up smart comments like that because in one sentence this writer sums up the entire modus operandi within the world of Neo-Capitalism for at least the last fifty years. Pretty clever.
It's this whole illusion, outright fiction, that capitalism is a natural law, that it performs a natural function, so that what is perceived to be criminal at a smaller level becomes totally appropriate when done in global proportions. It's like murder and war. An individual kills another individual: that's murder. But an army murders thousands, even millions or billions of civilians: that's heroic. What's the difference? Proportion and of course, power that leads to monetary profit.
And of course there is now this new buzz-statement to fall back on when the thieving hoods, creeps and addicts of corporate fraud and money-laundering banksterism run out of numbers to meet their obligations: TOO BIG TO FAIL. At which point and predictably, the "government" of whichever nation is stuck with these now-beyond criminality class-A criminals is forced to hand them billions of tax-payers' money in bail outs.
How did that idiot sports commentator put it again? "Ya gotta love it!" Indeed, what's there not to love in the ability to become such gross criminals that you propel yourself beyond the scope of an indictable crime into a perfectly legitimate "natural" law?

Yeah, well...if I were easily provoked this piece would have done the trick. With all due respect, it struck me as something of a hyperbolic tirade. Maybe best to simply give the world one decent human being and leave it go at that.
Otherwise, think funny and keep smiling!

|We are all responsible for our own actions. It is when we are held accountable for our own actions that credos and perspectives gain new meaning and are assessed true value. I bid you joy and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|This is why I do not watch much of TV or listen to radios, or pay hardly any attention to media or news item. I do however check from time to time into the world illusions to see what is happening. My preception of our world is very different because of lack of media exposure. My preception is that life is wonderful and the world is going as planned. This doesn't mean bad things don't happen. It just means I don't focus on it. The point that showed up in this article that I felt was the most important is that each and everyone of us should take responsibily for ourselfs. Period. In doing so each soul that does this helps to rise the vibrations of our planet. I believe this is happening dispite the illusions we see each day. An example is that here in Canada I have seen a remarkable amount of people interested in learning all that they can about accepting responsibily for themselfs. The teachings are open to the public and no longer hidden.............no more do we have to fear our choices. True freedom is simply being aware of our experiences and not judging them.|

|Would Allan Greenspam have not thought different, but too late, all things if they fit the mind or circumstances of those in power, those that sway the masses, be it morals, money, etc, etc, make it right in the moment, sometimes a very long moment, a moment were millions suffer the consequences, Auschwitz, was another one on this scale, along with war, or burning of witches, all that has changed at the moment is, who's perceived to be a witch or warlock, are you one of them? watch out. Bless ya!|

We have moved a long way from reason and as panic sets in the noose will continue to tighten. There is no answer to wrong thinking other than more wrong. We require a proper vision of what a human being actually is. we need a revolution of the mind.
Best to you Regis
