The more you forgive evil, the more it proliferates. Your silence equals compliance.
There’s no incentive for evil-doers to do right when the contract among the immoral offers a cornucopia of quasi-spiritual nonsense for their deeds including, but not limited to: forgive, turn the other cheek, grin and bear it, be the bigger person, don’t make waves, go along to get along, find the silver lining, suffering builds character, that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, let bygones be bygones, and a fat load of similar crap I heard growing up from my ‘betters’ which I now find extremely cringe-worthy.
“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
Read as: repress, dissociate, normalize, self-edit, put head back in sand, become a Prozac-smiling, tyrant-supporting, authority-repeating, happy daughter and compliant citizen.
”If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” George Orwell
Stop resisting and the suffering will end, the spiritualists say. Really? And how’s that been working out for us? Because the microcosm of the family and the community is a direct reflection to the macrocosm of the institutions and ultimately the entire global political system.
“As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’ll soon have to choose between self-indulgence (the bread-and-circus distractions offered up by the news media, politicians, sports conglomerates, entertainment industry, etc.) and self-preservation in the form of renewed vigilance about threats to our freedoms and active engagement in self-governance.” John Whitehead’s Commentary, The Omnipresent Surveillance State: Orwell’s 1984 Is No Longer Fiction June 10, 2019
For the average citizen endless war has been accepted. Mandatory vaccines are on the horizon. World governance looks inevitable. Weather manipulation goes unchallenged. Smart cities and robot bees and fake foods, and on and on.
We LOVE it ALL! Control us more, PLEASE!
Take away our very speech! We think it’s super-duper! The sooner we all think alike the better! What on earth are you waiting for?!
This is welcomed, those who are not going along out of fear, go along out of complacency, cluelessness, or collaboration.
Thus, what we are witnessing, in the so-called name of security and efficiency, is the creation of a new class system comprised of the watched (average Americans such as you and me) and the watchers (government bureaucrats, technicians and private corporations). Clearly, the age of privacy in America is at an end. JW
How did we get here? Let’s count the ways. Here’s one:
If you don’t lay blame where it is due, you cannot get on with serious work. Bypass at your peril. Drug or meditate your way to inner-peace so the guilty can remain blameless, and voilà one major reason why we find ourselves right here, right now.
According to Tsarion the New Age movement’s roots were in reaction to the charlatanism of centuries of Christianity and for that they do deserve some cred. OK, fine. But, you know these movements by their fruits. Has the society become better under their guidance? Are we more caring, more secure, more happy, healthy, connected, united, thanks to these preachings and teachings, because that’s what they keep promising us, and they’ve had plenty of time to prove themselves by now.
”Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.” George Orwell
