It seems the great oceans of pain and grief that lie at the bottom of the darker pits of hell have sent a scout to test the water and lay of the land in the world of man. This creature, (pik below) appears to have been sent by the nether regions to lay himself open, while Beelzebub counts our guns, and sees what our reaction will be. Considering the open confession he promotes, I don’t know why he has not been arrested and incarcerated. It is as if someone turned the kitchen lights off and the roaches have come out to play.
The great punishment for living is dying. We are all doomed to a relatively short time here and afterword an eternity we can only guess at. It seems quite reasonable we should believe in a time after this just to keep putting one foot before the next. Evil is really out there though, always waiting for that weak moment to grow and take more than it’s portion of pain and suffering.
a large part of humanity is held hostage by psychopathic males who believe misogyny and familial tyranny (founded in and guided by the blood soaked Sharia.)is the law of the land. And the law of sharia’s land is strewn with bloody body parts.
BUTI cannota turn away any longer. I see too many of our world who are so obsessed with their own genital dramas.
And thus Code Pink was born. And the lord of flies laughed as he saw so many trivialize the jeopardy of women. OTHER WOMEN!. The Teachers Union passed notion of the eternal student. Most of the intellectual development of a child indoctrinated into public school. THen ,generationaly, the notion of values hovering in a cloud above the head of a mellenial are best understood by a prepubescan child. I come from a time when lying around your parents house till you are 26 was shame incarnate. The abandonment of the the work ethic and several generations of teachers taught by teachers WHO TEACH THEIR BRIGHT LITTLE CHARGES THE BLESSINGS OF SOCIALISM. The underlining message is the dependency on institutions dedicated to making people dependent. It is a race that can’t be lost.
If a border officer sees a woman across the Rio Grand, on the Mexican side. She is being assaulted, the officer is armed and the water is shallow. He could save her with a breath. But he doesn’t, she is an alien in her own country. The officer turns to walk away. He could be walking to his vehicle to call for help, or, he could just drive off and forget he saw anything at all. The question is….where is the pale to mark the point at which we no longer care. Where does that fateful boundary lie that absolves of responsibility?
In ancient Jerusalem when Romans ruled the land. You couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a messiah or prophet of some sort. So being another radical Rabbi was not unusual. It is his thunderhead of a message that blew hot hellish winds up the Sanhedrin’s robes. For at a time when moral values were different, Armies ploughed under and buried for eternity, any village and villagers in their path. It was a time when might, did not make right, might was right. Gladiatorial blood games were the big draw of the day and compassion was a sign of weakness.
Then came a Nazarene named Jesus. His message eclipsed all other messages with it’s radical assertion of Peace and Love as paramount values. His message was a record breaker. Yet even a divine soul had a red line that could not be crossed. This limit was demonstrated when he whipped the money changers from the temple.
Evil is quite smug these days no only do they get to kill innocent babies…the victim population blames themselves! OH! If we could only be more understanding.
Can you find any reason to pour acid on an infant? or rather , would you like to live in a world where this sort of behavior seemed commonplace? Pseudo gladiatorial games (football, hockey etd. ). are a present rendition of these old forms of blood sport. This is the modern cultural difference. A compromise. that might be a sign of cultural maturity. No one has to die.
FACT is if there are so many who are the paragons of virtue and passivity you can raise an arny in any country on the globe in about a week. When it comes to cutting a rubber tree in 120 heat, going to work is a sour option to .The tug of war between our demons and angels is touch and go. We are in a constant tug of war between the better angels of our nature and the selfish demons of our primitive needs. The great question is, however; how can we know when it is the right time and circumstance to use our strength and courage? An old A.A. sampler, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Of the simple mandates in this piece, the toughest to follow is the last statement: “the wisdom to know the difference.” This task should keep a good man busy for the rest of his life. But ! Even if he finds no answers, it is the search that makes him righteous!
God bless the victims of the cowardly attack on the middle school in question.
But please take this away from this piece…….In declaring schools no gun zones it is the same as advertising to your roving sociopath that this is his stop and the shopping is hot! A feminized union culls out those with masculine tendencies, The cultural atmosphere is that of a building full of females who are terrified of guns and no threat at all.
.Romantic love does not exist. Sexual attraction exists at the beginning of many if not most relationships that end in long term partnerships. As a matter of fact I feel I have insulted the very concept of partnership by equating it with romance.
It’s been a while since divorce rates have passed the 50% mark. Now the bricks that bind our society, the nuclear family, (mom, dad, brother or sister) is at the skinny end of the slope downhill. Just turn on the T.V., All too often the father is portrayed a bumbling fool, the mother looks like a swimsuit model, the children are savvy stand-up comics and their relationship is a series of deceptions, and cute misdirections aimed at getting what they want at fathers expense.With the emasculation of the American patriarchy, with it’s defects, and butt of all humor, the very judgment and thought processes of the culture have been softened to the condition of a warm loaf of bread. The robust nature of males has been assaulted to the point that a safety course on the proper use and misuse of the male penis is not far down the road.
With the popularizion of the “anti-hero” in popular culture, and the “bad boy” values that guided the hand of our men have lost their luster. It is true that there is a pile of work needed to merely civilize the millennia-old concept that patriarchy meant somebody was going to be victimized.
Grant me the serenity to accept, The things I cannot change. Courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to know the difference.
This old adage, popularized through A.A. has been contemplated endlessly. With the phrase “wisdom to know the difference.” presenting us with the conundrum of the day. It is a matter of deciding what is right and good on a case by case basis. There will never be an “answer” we can finish the matter with just the best we can do from moment to moment. Only 15 year old Gurus have that bit of wisdom nailed down.
At the very base of our culture, or any society, is the smallest bonded group, the family. With family values, traditions and beliefs passed on and the roles , (patriarch, matriarch), clearly modeled from an older member, the strength of the family, neigberhood and local community. A man that can love his wife and children, stand with his heart covered and eyes on the flag can still do wrong. A man , on the other hand,, who commits many violent acts and lives selfishly is capable of acts of generosity upon occasion.
I spent the day yesterday sitting with my 32 year old daughter as she had her chemotherapy treatment. I was humbled by the quiet courage I saw in this young woman. It is amazing how much spiritual strength you absorb just by being near such a strong personality. My wife was also right there, giving as much love as she could. The prognosis on her stage 3 mass is positive. That is good. The mass is about the size of a handball. “Scary.”
Her four sisters, 3 young children, her mother and father as well as her partner will guarantee there is someone to be with her with her 24/7. Such is the strength the family, where no one is forced to comply but wants to please those who love them. The sinew, blood an bone of the patriarch was never meant to offend, to suppress those in their care, but such muscle was meant to stand in harms way and protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Love is strength, it is patient……love is commitment to the whole, even at the expense ones own wellbeing. After the Roman empire collapsed, a thousand years of violence blood, and cruelty defined western culture. The inquisition, the crusades and war after war to aggrandize petty nabobs and their dreams of empire marked an era of ignorance crowned by conquest and plague ignorance threatened to wipe out the whole of western Europe.
But the heart of Christendom survived. The immutable truth, in the words of a humble carpenter served as a light toward which mankind could find its way.
Evil will be with us always. We must not give in. Our vigilance must not be abandoned to fear or fatigue. We must not turn our back on love. The fact is that any system of spiritual belief that gives the male head of the family king-like power… is doomed to abuse that power selfishly. You know…”git me another beer bitch!”
Freud had a lot of rather perverse notions concerning human personality. Penis envy is the first to come to mind; in which he asserted females felt deprived of something that males had…a penis. Strange thought isn’t it. The Electra complex (murdering mom for full possession of dad), or the Oedipus complex, (the expunging of the father for full possession of the mother). Freuds basic structure of the human personality, comprised of the evil Id, the over critical Superego and the hypercritical superego is dead on. It is the struggle for primacy between these opposing drives (instincts if you will.) that brings forth either the good or the bad in men.
Trained in neurology, Freud saw the world from the micro to macro. From the ravenous feral Id to the excruciatingly criticle Super-ego, a constant psychic tug ot war battles for control of mans behavior. Will the Id win and the trigger is pulled……or will the shaming of the super-ego prevail and the gun be put peacefully back in the holster? The Id (feeding, fighting, fleeing and sex) The superego, (restraint, shaming and condemnation of the less than moral urges of the Id) and finally, the Ego the great negotiator of the mind, helps the Id get what it wants in socially acceptable ways.
Most conflict begins in the soul of each. War, murder, domestic violence , prison rape and the guy with the ‘fro’ that paints happy little trees.(God I hate that guy).Of all theories Freud’s tripartite structure to the average human personality is the most cross -culturally meaningful. Because he begins with life in it’s most primitive state and works to the most complicated organism there are no logical gaps to fill. No rationalization to whip out when there are holes in the theory….it fits. As a matter of fact the behaviours are cross special. Just ponder a mother tiger cuffing a cub when it needs to learn not to play with dangerous things. It’s the same. the parents teach the young, guides and hones their survival skills. Same thing with all species.. Same thing as a human parent teaching a kid to look both ways before stepping into the cross-walk.
So there will be evil I the world…..as long as there are men in the world. The “Devil made me do it”! or I guess I should confess I did it; which ever way. Doesn’t matter, . Whether it is born on the wind or in mens hearts, there is evil in the world and there will always be evil in the world. The good man is defined by the courage he shows grappling with himself and the world.
Is Allah a one trick pony? What can be said. All of histories understanding elequance and persuasion are exhausted. What again and more can be said? Read if you will another report, of fresh muslim involvement in a mostly Christian country.
